D Who Is Opening the New Bridge at Medicine CHIEF RHODES IN A FIGHT Ottawa, May seventh day of the debate on the election bill still finds the Commons at a deadlock, with the Opposition displaying a blind obstinacy in rejecting the rea- sonable and absolutely fair compro- mise offered yesterday by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and regardless of the incon- sistency of their present attitude as contrasted with the position takfen earlier in the debate. They are de- termined to continue their obstruc- tion tactics and hold up the business of the country to the embarrassment of hundreds of members of the civil service throughout Canada who can- not be paid until after additional supplies are voted. Tn caucus this morning the Oppo- sition decided that they would be satisfied with nothing less than the complete withdrawal of the conten- tious first clause of the bill, providing for the remedying of the acknowledged defects in the present situation in Manitoba. Mr. Borden, in his speech this af- ternoon took his party with him in a bold plunge of uncompromising op- position to the government's final cone ssion. On the Conservative members must now lie the onus of de- liberate and unquestionable block- ing the whole business of Parlia' incut. Practically the Opposition now says to the government "While your proposals, as outlimd by Sir Wilfrid Laurier's speech of yesterday are not only desirable but acceptable and while we agree that some action is necessary, you must withdraw the pr. sent bill, otherwise we will no' consent to pass one cent of supply."

Heuser and Evans, build- ers and contractors, complain very strongly (and not without reason) of certain public and press comments in ngard to the building of the Fire Hall, or we should say more partic- ularly to the construction of the three colls. They desire it to be" publicly known that the structure was built exactly according to the .plans and specifications and if the doors of the cells were weak enough to enable prisoners to break out (which hap- pened on two occasions) they are not to blame .having no authority to alter the plans on which their contract was basal. They desire that this public- ity should be given and the blame if any placed on the proper shoulders. The town constable also comes in for a share of comment. Surely he cannot be expected to sit in his office night and day watching prisoners, nor can it be expected that he should constantly be on guard at the pound when cattle are impounded to prevent Rhodes, being the central figure.
