Toronto Star Toronto Star: "Public opinion will uphold the government's action in ibis-criarsrUTifl" those who have criticized its course in the past will forget all that if there now be shown vigor and competency in doing right. If the blood and life of the country is to be lined up for duty and service, wealth and industries of the country cannol be regarded as having any sacredness about them which must be respected by the authorities." Toronto News "It is doubtful if compulsion was either necessary or feasible until the occurrence of recent events of gravest moment. Adoption of the selective draft in the United Stales has made the same policy more practicable in Canada. Other new factors are the increased submarine toll, the partial defection of Russia and the heavy casualties among the Canadian troops. The prime minister has chosen the proper time for the new departure." Toronto Telegram "Selective conscription must be absolutely tree from fear, favor or affection In the method of selection. Sir Robert Borden would have injured his country and his party less by leaving conscription aloije altogether than by permitting influence to supercede justice in the select'ion of recruits." Toronto World , "Nothing has been done in Canada since the war started that will encourage our boys at the front as the news, that they are no longer to be left unsupported. It will put new spirit and new heart in the Canadian army to know that at least their own people are behind them." Ottawa Journal-Press "During the past few weeks opinion has been crystallized through the country that it was the only alternative if Canada was not to be disgraced in the eyes of the world. We have no hesitation in saying that all over Canada there has been in these recent weeks a striking change in public opinion on the subject. We would not even except Quebec from this assertion." / Winnipeg. May 19.-The morning', was a dull one. one of the dullest the trade lias seen lor a long time so far! as volume of trade is concerned, but a wild one in prices. There was no opening in October until after 10 o'clock but after once started it show-, ed a wide range selling up to 2.22 j and closing 14-?sc higher than Friday, i The cash situation was. interesting in : that it showed quite a keen demand | by some of the mills for wheat. When � the agreement between the principal i longs and shorts was being worked | out less than two weeks ago the mills ! did not wish to be bound to take de-j livery of wheat in May and Juno on I July contracts stating that they rare-, ' ly wanted wheat in those months, and! , while they might want to take some, j they did not wish to take wheat and  pay the premiums offered by the agent 1 for the allied governments and the i agreement was finally made on that ! basis, the government agent agreeing ; to help out those who wished to de-; liver. Within the past few days there i has developed quite an active demand ' among some of the local mills and some of the Ontario milis and Jhere ( does not appear to be any plethora of wheat to,satisfy this demand.

Appeal Heard In District Court this morning an appeal was heard by Judge Jackson in which the Alberta Provincial j Police through the attorney general's I department appealed from a decision  of Magistrate Elton In the recent ' liquor case against Pete Smith of Coalhurst. Judgment being reserved Smith was arrested by Detective Hes-k'cth of the A.P.P., charged with keeping liquor in a boarding or lodging house. The evidence showed that three miners lived at the home of Smith, whose wife did their cooking and washing for a stated sum, the men buying their own provisions. Council for the defence, It. A. Smith, held that the fact that'lltese men had their cooking done in the house did not constitute it a boarding house. Magistrate* Elton agreed and dismissed the case, fit the appeal R. A.
