Cliarlos Murphy coniplainod that tho act did not preaorvo the Kafe-Kuard against patronage as tho previous one did, lie said that not only did it fall lo abolish putronaKo but trouble would be more rampant than ever. Sir Robert Borden replyinK. stateil that lie could not concur in the view taken by Mr. Murphy. Returned Men Represnnted � SpealtiuK of tlie discussion regard-iUK the ropre.seiitatiou of returned soldiers on the commission, tho prime miniator said that It it was necessary to Increase the personiiol of the board, the house might rost assui^ed that the reiiresontations of returned soldiers would not bo forgotten. But he knew soldiers would not desire lo add (o tlie 1)oard if the Rovornuient held tho opinion lliiiL. siicii ii move^would not be in the pnljlic interest. Dr. n. .1. .Manion, Kort Williain. stated that ho wished to bo rocordod as haviiiK been greatly in favor of ropre-sentatiou for the soldiers on the com-inissiDU. Uctiirned .loldiers, Dr. Manion said, Khonld have tho prefercMue. Hir itobert Borden: "My honorable friend v.-ill roall7.o of Cour.'-.o that a jM'eferencc has been established by order in council and is coufirmod by tbi.'i bill." .Ml', yiuclair regretted that tlio government railways were not brought under l^io hill. Mr. I'arenl. Quebec West, .seconded by Mr. McKenzie, Capo Brelcni. then moved that the bill be referred back to committee with Instructions to restore clause ft of tho bill as first submitted to the house. 'I'liia, clausn forbids any per.son to "solicit or ondoavor to In- flftonce any inlnislor oC tho crown or tho head of any dopartmcnt with 're-spticl to the appointment of aity person to the HCrvtcd." VV. S. Floldlnfe oaid ho would not like to Inierioro with tho right of any one lo approach u minister of the orown. Sir Sam Hughes also maintained that (ho privlloffo of individuals to approach a minlBtor should bo rotaln-od. "Why should people," ho said, "bo cbloroformod tor daring to look at a minister excepting through atnbkod glasses." Mr. Barents' amendment was lost by Mr. iMorphy again voted with the opposition. Colonel .John Currio then Introduced another atneildmonl providing tor roprosontation on the civil coiumlB-sion of returned soldiers and ladles. It was Hocojidod by I. K. Bedlow, the op-Itositlon member tor Ueiifrew south. Sii' Wilfrid Laurler asked if Colonel Currio ])ropoaod that those representatives should serve without salary, and the mover of tho amendment replied yes. Mr. MacLcan contended (hat the amendment was not in order, because the lilllprovided thai a salary of ^r,()(m a year should be paid to civil aorvice commlssloneri. C6|onol I'urrie then asked leave lo ajJiciid his aniendmtnil bv inserting the words "without pay." 'i'ho government be said, could thon provide salaries If necessai'y. Sir Wilfrid: : "I quite approve of Cobmet Currie's tnotive, but surely that be does not expect that a lady or a returned soldier would a(;c(!pt such onerous dntles without salary. His remedy is lo convin(!o the government and have it bring in a motion if they want to." Tho speaker:: "I am of tho opinion that the point of order raised by Mr. .MacLoan Is well taken and that the amendment la not in older and 1 so rule." The house then returned to consideration of tho main motion and third reading of the bill. The bill was given third reading.

GE SIGNAL FAILURE London, May 17.-Oerinali aviation has proved a signal failure In the great nffen.slvo on tho western front, according to an officer correspondent of the :\Iorning Post. Writing from (he. front he says: "(lortnan aviation does not exist at present. There are two prlnci)ial reasons, tho first being the tremendous wastage caused by the inc^essaiit a(-(acks of tho British !ind Krench pilots on Gernmn machllioa, the second being tile bombing of airdromes. The enemy today stiffor.s froiri lack of men and nnichlnes in its flying arm. "(n every dciiartmont tho (Jormans have been utul still are exerting their full Hirengfli. If Ihoy had airplanes available there Is no doubt that they w(nild have madi! full use of them, as wo have done, for observation purposes, lo prevent the bringing up of roinforcemonts and to disorgaui/.o troops on the baUlofleld of Krance. They havi! done none of things (effectively. "The coiiihlKion seem,'; -ni;ti)ifcBl that it is because they have not the necessary force available. In any case the fact remains that (Jerman aviation has ceased lo bo a force to be seriously re(d(oned with. In (ho last four weeks (be situation, which on several occasions has necessarily been delicate, would have been very much more so, had the" Ciermana been equipped with an adequate air aorvice lo supply them with djflnlte observation.
