A big company ot slgnallera flanked tho training gronnds. They signalled tor ordinary practice a message of loyalty and welcome to the King-Empor-orT" His Majesty also saw an attack upon the trenches, which officers from tho front considered the most realistic possible without bloodshed. The attackers ran along communication trenches, supported by inachlno guns and rifio tiro from tho rear and us4d their bayonets with the deadliest effect upon dummies. The "casualties" kept the stretclier bearers and army medical corps busy. Finally the King took up a position on an improvised -jjlatform and witnessed tho march past by a young soldiers' battalion, their performance being ot tho smartest description. All the troops did tho utmost credit to their instructors. His Majesty left amid a dtorm of cheers to inspect a aeries ot camps a few miles distant. He was there received by Major General Garnet Hughes, who presented Lieut. Colonel W. S. Buell, Majpr L. B. Unwln, Colonel Sharman and other officers.

SERVICE STATION HENRY J. DENN PROPRIETOR \ AU Makes of Batteries Charged and Repaired - 311 7TH STREET 8. PHONE 616 from IG to 18 years of age. There was considerable discussion of a sub-section in the bill which provides that "no male person under the age of 21 shall be prosecuted for any offensive under the provisions ot this section." Wants Stronger Penalties Mr. Devlin r9torred to the sub-section as "one of the niosit damnable pieces of- legislation I have ever seen brought before tho house." He would have preferred an araond-ment making a inaw liiible- to six years imprisonment instead of two. and cutting off tlie age of consent. The sub-section, he says, was really giving permission to all young men ot 20 years and such legislation should not be tolerated. Mr. Stacey ot New Westminster district, urged that--tho age of 21 years In the .sub-section should be reduced to IS. .Mr. A. R. McMaster urged that tho clause be retained, in the bill, but that tho ages be changed ,from 21 to 19 years. Reduce it to 18 After some "turther discussion Mr. Doherty accepted the suggestion qI-| Mr. Stacey and amended the clause by reducing the age from 21 to~18 years. A further section in the bill was criticized by Mr. Viens of Lotblnlere. The' section provides :i penalty for any person who, by Indulgence in vice "renders the homo of the child an unfit place for such child to bo in." Mr. Viens claimed that the section would empovvM so-called social reformers to Intrude oud to make complaints against any one whether the complaints were founded or not. Prevent Blackmail The minister ot justice said tho clause was not new in Canadian law. It had been In operation for some time In Ontario- and was considered invaluable. Under it no right ot search was given which did not exist already. Mr. Viena replied that he understood right of Hearch was not given bpt he thought 1^0 clause gave too wide an authority lo make complaints. He suggested that the right to complaint be not open but that all complalnta bo madd through the inatrumontallty of tho attorney-general of the pi'bvlnco. Tho clauso then could not be used as an instrumont to blackmail. Continuing the discussion, ot Mr. Doherly's act to amend tho crlmiuol' code at tho attornnon aittlng, .Taaques Bureau took exception to the word- � ing ot the clause dealing with' tho protection of children. He thought it improperly worded and ^that it would give an opportunity for excessively \ good people to ruin the reputation ot others. He was willing to enact all legislation lo protect the youth ot ; the country, but felt that tho wording of this clause should be altered.! H. B. Morphy thought tliuf no pro-; secution under the clause which wos i being discussed should be started except through tho medium of some, organization whose special duty was tho care of children. Ho also suggested that a flat ahould be obtained ,^from the niiiilBtor of juallce, tho sol-I icitor general, or some other roapon-(ilhlo authority before tho prosecution was, started. Favors Clause. H.. A. Mackie favored the clause, siiyliig that It would tend tp niakcj ifparonts cnrotui in tho bringing up ot their chiiaron. Tho clause, ho thought, was of iniportancB to the West whe'ro there woro many different nationalltioa, with varying standards ot moralal They sliould be taught that they must conform -to Canadian standards. Too Drastic. That the clause was too drastic! r 'would involve an extra aiiiiunl expenditure jn -wages of ?:iO.OOO, but it is believed that the men might compromise on a somewhat smaller advance than they are domunding now.
