"I bring back to the people of Canada from these men a message that they ueed our help, that they need to bo supported, that re-inforcements must be sent them. "Thousands of them have made the supreme sacrifice tor our liberty aud preservation of common gratitude, apart from all other considerations should bring the whole force of this nation behind them. 1 have promised, insofar as I am concerned that this help will be given. I should feel myself unworthy of the responsibilities devolving upon me if I did not fulfil that pledge. 1 bring a message from them: yes. a message from the men in the hospitals, who have come back from the very valleys of the shadow of death, many of them maimed for life. I saw one of them who had lost both logs pretty well up to the hip and "he was as bright, cheerful, as brave and as confident of the future as anyone of tW'merabers of this house, a splendid boy. but is there not some other message, is there not a call to us from those who have passed that shadow into the light of perfect day, from those who have fallen in France and Belgium, from those who have died that Canada might live, is there not a call to us that their sacrifice shall not be in vain ? "I have had to take these matters into consideration and I have given them my consideration. I realize that the responsibility is a serious one. but I do not shrink from it. Therefore it is my duty to announce to the house that early proposals will be made on News of the Labor World Conducted by H. E. Ferguson, accredited by tho Trade* and Labor Council of Lethbridge.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier Sir Wilfrid Laurier did not commit himself as to the attitude of the opposition with regard to the government's proposal. The same consideration., would be given to this measure as had been given to war legislation already passed by parliament. Such departure from traditional policy would involve grave consideration. It was, he said, the determination of all Canadians, that Canada should continue to do her part vigorously until victory ie finally achieved.

Events in Russia have brougnt into the war a new featare upon which we had not calculated.

"I am not to say we should adopt this or adopt that: That we should reject this or reject that: the only thing I say and as to which I pledge the word and judgment of those who sit beside mo, is that wo have no intention other than to remain in tho war to the end, and wo are determined that we shall do our duty to tho best of our-judgment and in such-a way as to insure that the best methods are adopted to bring about that victory for which wo are all longing and which we all; hope vvJJl certainly como. whether it'comes early or late." \ \ tion? Not for a minute Edmonton Bulletin. Edmonton. May 19.-The Bulletin editorially today, says: "Voluntary enlistment has practically ceased, and there is no evidence of any: hopeful attempt to revive it. The alternative," therefore, seems to: be com- pulsion or default, ami default, is not to bo thought of if we still value our liberty or our national self-respect." Edmonton Journal. Edmonton, May 19.-The' Journal declares that the premier's announcement brings.a feeling of great relief to the majority of Cauiulians and that it saves the country from national disgrace. Sir Robert Bcrden is commended for acting so promptly on his return and the opinion is expressed that but for the delay in this, action would have been taken much sooner." Winnipeg Telegram. The Winnipeg Telegram says: "The government's decision will be accepted as the proper course under all circumstances. Public opinion on the subject has been undergoing a gradual education ever since the war began. Whatever sacrifices are called-'for will be cheerfully made." Reglna Leader Regina, Sask., May 19. - Regina Morning Leader said today editorially: --"Announcement by Premier Borden in parliament yesterday that the government has finally - decided to bring in a measure of selective conscription to raise the additional men now so urgently requiredj in the army, is a welcome one. ,jlt is a very much belated announcement, but we rejoice that it has come at last."
