Yukon Election. Hon. Hugh Guthrlo presented l!ie final .report ot the committee on privileges and elections. Instructing tho general returning otdcer to appor�:oii the soldiers' vote taken In tho Yukon election to tho candidates for whom It was cast and to declare a candidiUo elected, K. U, Devlin ot Wright, moved that the report of tho gcnenil letnrnin^ officer bo offered to the Bupremc court tor adjudica'tlon and decision and that llie decision of the supreme court be referred to tho house for such uctijn as It may deem proper. Right of Appeal. Jlr. Guthrie announced that a bill would be Introduced and passed be- i fot;o prorogation which would give tiio | riglit to appeal to tho courts for a per-1 lod within forty days after the gen- f oral returning officer makes his de-1 claration. The bill would provide for the counting of the soldiers' vote no matter wheo they were polled. , I In reply to a (luestion by Mr. Field-1 ing. the eolicltor-goneral n.xplainod ] that the bill would apply to the Yukon \ election olily. .Mr. Guthrie argued that by no refinement ot argument or technicalityi could :wn soldiers' votes bo wiped out. | Debate on Yukon Case. Continuing the debate ot the report; of tho committee on privileges .and � elections (Yukon election case) at I I the afternoon sitting, Hon. \V. S. j I Fielding said that the great issue in tho matter wa.-f wirelher or not the long established parliamentary precepts with regard to controverted ^ elections should stand or fall. This ' precept before the house" was that I cases of this kind should not bo de-! elded by a partisan commiltec of the I house. The difficulty had been caused by (he War Time Flections Act. Thero w'ere some men who professed respect for this act, but Mr. Fielding isaid lie was not.ono of tbom. In fact MADE IN CANADA 80IV1R OF ITS USES I For maklnK ooap. For waahlnff iJIshes, for 'eleanlne and view.^. lie declared that, while both of tlio candidates, prior to tlio election iivtlio Yukon,luui at tlie same time .'.ui)ported conscription yet one of them supported it in principle and practice and took the only course tliat would have rosuUud in its enforcement. Tlie oth&r, lie said, while he may have supported it, was nevertheless endorsed by the leader ot the nntl-conscrlptlon party. A by-el.ectionj in the Yukon, ^aid Mr. Jfeighen, would mean an appeal to only four-fifths of the electorate. The vote hardly could be obtained. Hon. ."Mr. Fielding: "Wliy not?" Mr. Jlolghen maintained that it would be an exceedingly difficult task to secure from the great number of nidn overseas those qualified to vote in tlio Yukon. To do Ibis would be an injustice to tho fighting men ai the front. Opposition laughter .gpeeted this statement. Mr. .Arcighou: "My friends opposite laugh and that laughter shows the measure ot their interest in winning tlie war." � -.-^ A Hoyi/I. This remark was met with loud cries of protest from tlie opposition benches and A. R. Mc.Master, rising to a point ot order said that "It Was a gratuitious insult to every member of tho oppositioa and should be wlUi-drawn." Speaker Uhtxdes staid that ho did not think that Mr. Meighen in^tonded the remark to boar the meaning which l^ad been taken from it byMr. McMas-fi!v-. If he thought so he would demand its withdrawal. Mr. MclMastoi' insisted that tho remark was Mnsultliig, inasmuch as it implied that tlio opposition members were not interested- in winning the war. s Speaker Rhodes requested Mi:,, Meighen to stato""that lie had notii'itonded to imply that any honorable gentleman was not interested in winning tho war. / The house divided on the nevltn amendment whicfi was doteatetl by HK! to 08. .' - Toronto, May 21, 'riio present position regarding niilllary service ot boys wlio are T'J .^cars old or in tho future reach that a^e. is as follows, according to a stiitciiicni niado by the registrar for .Ontario today: Hoys wlio.had attained the age ot 19 years on April liiis. must register before next .liiiic i.
