This KES PROMOIEO BY ORGilZAIION London, March, 2S.-Dr. Christopher Addison, parliamentary under-sec-retary for munitions, revealed to the house of commons today a grave condition of strike promotion and what he described as a deliberate, organized policy of holding up munitions of war, which, in the opinion of Sir Edward Carson, who followed him in the ,, , ^, , , , . . . i debate, might justify the men involve will be the third battery to be re-i^^ being charged with treason for as- He wns bom in London township.

Dr. Stanley said the method proposed was not clear and tho government had had lots of time to decide on whether It would appoint an In-depcL'dont commission or not. .Mr. Crawford-"lias the goveni-mcnt had any applications for a position .under the new act?" Mr. Cross-"We have received many applications and only one man has been promised a position, the Rov, Mr. Gould, secretaiy of the Alberta Temperance and Moral Reform Assoc-iatlon." -Mr. Hoadle.v-"Had any applicant any knowledge as to whom he was to be associated with?" -Mr. Cross-"He applied on my suggestion that ho assist in making the act effective." Mr. Crawford-"Will he be working with men in sympathy with the act?" .Mr. Cross-"There Is no need to worry about tlmt." .Mr. Hoadley pressed for a statement of policy and Mr. Sifton replying, said the government wotdd assume full respouslbility for the enforcement of the act through the usual channels. For all actions the Lieutenant-Gover- nor-in-council would be fully respons- , lug deluged with requests for bridges. the establishment of a restuarant In the building. Tho members wore working from 9 a.m. to 10.30 p.m. and It was rather strenuous, going up town to dlno. Mr. Sifton, replying, said that the idea of the night sessions this week wns due to tho fact that the approi)-rlations all expired on Friday and he wanted to get the estimates through with as little delay as possible. After this is done, there would bo no necil of a night session except when clrcum-Btances warranted it. He said there would be no prorogation until the order paper was cleared. The order paper was cleared. Mr. Stewart's estimates were taken up at night. Tho estimates contain an Item of $4000 to establish 11 rescue station at Drumheller. Tho government is spending $37,000 on tho mining industry without a cent of rovonuo. If more were needed Mr. Stewart said he would have no hesitancy In asking for it. He believed in doing everything possible to encour-ago an important industry. R. E. Campbell made a plea for gi'oater expenditure and highly praised the rescue stations established by the government. He also wanted Alberta coal advertised in other provinces.

NTERESIG A STARTED IN IT J R ible. Mr. Sifton said no "Independent commissions would be appointed to take responsibility from the Government." Dr. Stanley said the word inde^ien-dent was probably the wrong word to use. Premier Sifton said he had asked frequently what an independent commission meant. If Dr. Stanley or any one else would state wliat was meant by un Independent commission ho would not hesitate to give a very definite statement of government policy. Criticises Board Earlier in the afternoon Mr. Hoadley made an attack on the present board of license commission, whom he There was lots of good humor and while not much progress wns made, a good time was had. About half a million was voted. Quite an Interesting action ha* been commenced in Supremo Court which involves the transfer of the jiroperty belonging to .las. Ashcrott, an old-timer, under mortgage to tho T. K. Evans estato. This properly includes tho Ashcroft coal mine across Ihe river, recently acquired by Conunis-slonor Grace, and lands in the district and property in the city. Title to the property is held by the Evans estate as security for a mortgage on it given by Mr. A.shcroft. When tho sale of tho mine wns made last winter It was considered that the property belonged to the estate, Mr. Ashcroft not having kept up his mortgage payments. Tho hitler, bow-over, blocked the transfer on the ground that the proper steps to foreclose had not been taken and as a result the whole matter is now in the hands of the courts. It is understood the case will be hoard as a civil ac- tion when the sprlitg assizes are held bore In .May. Tho action Is of much Interest locally, all parties being well known residents.

Men have been named who are charged with awarding munitions contracts to fictitious concerns with a division of profits Bmountlng to a million dollars. While Sir Sam may have a perfectly good defence, and while a man is considered Innocent until he has been proven guilty, nevertheless the facts brought forward by Mr. Kyte are too appalling to be overlooked. There ought to be an investigation. Common decency demands i]l. We believe 90 per cent, of the people of Canada demand It.

The strikes bore no relation ' has become editor of the "Review of i to industrial conditions, he said, and 1 Reviews," the periodical founded 1 were denounced by trade union iead-i ers. The object of the committee, he explained, was to compel the government to repeal the munitions of war and military service acts, and to withdraw all limitations upon increases of pay, strikes and freedom of action without government control. Dr. Addison explained further that the trouble arose on JIarch 17, in one case 110,000 men being brought out and from that time a series of strikes had occurred under a systematic plan.

In "good old Ontario" the newspapers used to give a summarv- of what each man said without comment by the reporter, while the editorial columns were reserved for comment. He thought a hansard was necessary as a protection to the members. The matter then dropped.

F. W. Downer, chairman of the recent citizens' recruiting meeting, lias received a copy of the resolution passed, which is as follows: Whereas, this Dominion is engaged in a war involving the very existence of British institutions-a war that calls for the most rigid economy of men and means-a war that can he successfully concluded only by the fullest utilization of all our resources. Whereas, under the present voluntary system there is great waste of the nation's resources. The Hamilton Recruiting League humbly begs the government of Canada to appoint & commissloa for the purpose of: (a) Taking a census of all men In the Dominion from 18 years of age upward, specifying those married and unmarried. (b) Classifying the men according to their occupations or their fitness or preference for curtain kinds of work. (c) Classifying tho industries with a view to the restriction or the ultimate elimination of such as are nonessential to tho welfare of the country or are not economic factors. (d) It being undorstood that the foregoing is urged with a view to the Immediate application of some Just and comprehensive system of draft whereby the men necessary to complete tho Canadian expeditionary forces may be readily secured, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION APPLY TO " "'"t Lethbridge Branch - R.
