Loafing time has passed-but then, none of the real workers are loafing. Centre your mind-and energies-upon the first prize and work accordingly.. Twelve hundred in cash w^iil come In mighty handy along about Christmas time. You can be a great spender and salt at least a thousand-all clear gain to you, just for energy for a few short weeks. But if you want the ^i00 cotUge, It's all the same to the Herald. All you have to do Is to win it first. You can spend the $1500 all for a house ailoiie or for n house and lot, or you con build a more expensive bouse and pay the dlJIerence yourweU. - ^Vnd an autor-now you're coming to a fine prize-you can pick out one for $1500 and have it delivered at your door if you live in Lethbrldge or drive it to your homo if you live in an outside town.

PURELY PERSONAL About six o'clock last evening the leader in today's voting poked Ills head In the headquarter-s door, with the greeting, "Hello! I have a wad of votes {or tomorrow." He had no way of knowing whether be could lead or not, but he took chances on 30,ffj)0 turning the trick-and it did. Mr. Revlll has kMt none of hia early period enthusiasm. Mrs. Ira Flelclier 'phoned ih to make an inquiry, and request that 'io.ooi) be added for today. She said that a report was on the way with that much -and maybe more. Miss Jean B. aPtterson, of ^lairmove, also uBed the long distance. Her score increased 62,000, which gives her isecond-place wit!; i, fair margin over the next below her. Miss Agnes Pelletier ot Pincher Greek makes a gain of 20,000 this even-ing. Pincher Creek will bear watching. .Vnother of the strongs candidates. Mrs. W. Hoult, leift over 33,000 votes for the standing today. "The new candidate from Elko makes a nice start. The Elko district is noted for good fishing-we know, for we've caught 'enj, and the big ones didn't all get away-and there is no reason why this rising town should -not produce-a good candidate.

Contest Closes December 11th Y TACTICS BY UNIONISTS INTHEimiAL T Home Rule Bill Causes Outbreak of Passion-Ministers Openly Insulted London, Nov. 14.-The house, of eorainons, the popular house of the "Mother of Parliaments", was the scene tonight of a riot over Premier Asquith's proposal to rescind the ac- | .tion of Monday, when the Unionists carried by a majority of 22 Sir Fred-ericlv IBanhury's araendraent defeating ithe most important financial feature cf tile home rule bill. The Unionists refused to permit the! Bebate and the speaker was forced to adjourn the session on account of tlie fiisorder. This is an extremely rare ! necessity, and tlie situation is considered a critical one. The Unionists almost unanimously tlircaten that they will continue to make business in the impossible until the Prime Minister accepts tlie i amendments or drops the Vlonie Rule ' bill. They declare that his action is unprecedented and will he ohstrunled by unprecedented measures. Their oli-ject is to force the government -to resign. The uproar far e.'^cccded that which stided Pre-mior Asquitli's .speech when lie introduced the iiome Rule bill, and has not hecn criuailcd since the free fight over Gladstone's first Homo Rule measure. ' The ministers wciro taunted with epithets lilio "apes" and "traitors." Sic William Bull, Unionist lot ilam-mersmith, was ordered from the floor for repeatedly calling Mr. Asquith a "traitor." After adjournment the Unionists doubled up programs and threw them across the floor at the Prime Minister. Winston Spencer Ciiurchill, first Lord of the Admiralty, was hit (with a heavy bool; hurled from the camp of the enemy. A fight appeared imminent until Will Crooks, the Labor member, poured oil on the troubled waters by starting the singing of "Auld Lang Syne." When the session began there were packed benches. The Premier's followers gave him .-a great cheer on his entrance and demonstrated that they were present in force by defeating a motion to adjourn early in the proceedings by a vote of 327 to 218. The siihstanee of Mr. Asquith's motion was that the Banbuiy amendment be rescinded, "Xotwithstanding anything in any standing order of this house," and tliat the order of the house in respect to the Home Rule hill take elTcct as though Monday's proceedings had not taken place. Tho uflect of this would be practically to begin again the consideration of the bill at the close where the Banbury amendment was offered. Andrew Boiiar Law, leader of the opposition, had tho floor quickly, and inquired whether there was any precedent for the gc(,vernment's course and whether it would not destroy all safeguards lor regularity in the house of commons' proceedings. Amid loud opposition clieors the speaker pleaded that he could find no precedent tor rescinding a decision ot the house arrived at during tho pass-ago of a hill. Whether it would destroy the safeguards was a matter on which every nwrnber must form his own judgment. There was a long discussion and then Mr. Asquith arose and said that no notice had-1 been given of the amendment offered by Sir Frederick Banbury and that it should he brief. He doubted if the members on either side had appreciated its importance. It would reduce the $30,000,000 which it was proposed to transfer to the Irish government to $12,000,000. "If the decision come to Monday, remains unreversed," said the Premier gravely, "or on reconsideration is found to be the deliberate judgment of the house it would he impossible for the government to proceed with the bill. There are two reasons for this. In the first place a mortal blow would havo been struck-" Mr. Bonar Law-"H-as been-" To Shippers of Grain Btfer* aelling or ahlpping yaur grain eenivll JOHN BILLINGS & CO.

Local Manager : : : I.8ALBERQ Mr, Asquith-"At the financial arrangements of the bill. Next, 1 strongly hold that a bill passing this house should receive upon all suli-stantial and vital points the assent of the majority of the house." Government's Majority A motion to adjourn was defeated 327 to. 218. Then the storm broke. Sir Frederick Banbury moved that a decision reached could not he reversed at the san?e session. "The only honorable alternatives before the government,"'ho. said, "are resignation or dissolution. All tho respect with which tho members of the minority arc. treated is to have the members of the cabinet sitting opposite them grinning like apes. The government is only a circus led by rebels. The best thing the Ulster members can do is to go home and make preparations to resist home rule." Louis Harcourt, Secretary of State tor the Colonies, attempted to speak. Ho was on his feet for several min-1 ules. Every sentence was drowned by j Unionist shouts and derisive cvies (or ' Moyd-Georgc, lie finally took his scat. Tho Attorney-General Sir Rutus Isaacs suffered tho same experience. Henry Pago Croft, Unionist toe Christ church, shouted : "The name of this government stlnka iii tho city of London," referring to various alleged financial scandalB. The speaker finally adjourned tbe house for an hour- Immediately it reconvened Sir Rufus Isaacs was on his iect amid shouts of "adjourn." The voice of Sir Edward Carson, who led the anti-home rule In Ulster, arose above the din. "There will bo no, more business in the house," he cried. '� , The spolikcr repeatedly appealed tot order and at length declared, "I rule that a scene ot grave disorder has arisen and I adjourn the house until tomorrow." A yoll of victory hurst from the Uuiouists. Xlm caauxhtits of Uw c^at- inct clustered on their side of the clerk's table. No one moved to leave the house. On the Unionist side was a seething mob. An -.arm was raised and a document flung across the floor. It struck the Prime Minister on the shoulder. A shower of order papers fell among the group of ministers. Mr. Asquith, white and indignant, faced the attack with folded anns. The air was thick with papers and hats. At length the Prime Minister stalked to the door, greeted with yells of defiance and approval. Suddenly the Unionist member, Ron-' aid McNeill, rushed to the clerk's table and seized a heavy volume. He hurled it at the first Lord of the Admiralty, Mr. Churchill, whom it struck full on the chest. There was an ugly rush from the Liberal benches, but the cooler members held back their colleagues. For a moment a battle ot fists seemed imminent. The peacemaking voice of Will Crooks was raised in song : ".Should auld acquaintance be forgot." Others took up the refrain and gradually flowed into the lobby. At a cabinet meeting held later it was determined to adhere- to the program. London, Nov. 14.-The Times par- lianrentary correspondent says that the Unionist leaders after the adjournment of the house held a private conference and decided that unless the government finds a parliamentary and constitutional way out of the difUcul-ty created by its defeat on the home rule amendment the opposition will refuse to permit a continuance of the proceedings of- the house. It is stated that the Unionist leaders have the Avarmest support of their followers in this policy and in their determination to prevent debate on tlie premier's motion to rescind Sir Frederick Banbury's amendment.

Discussion centred on tho consideration ot what attitude the party 'would adopt with reg:ard to the threats made recently by L'Action Soclale, the clerical organ, which la controlled by Monslgneur Roy, au.xUlary to .Mgr. Begin, archbishop oC Quohoc, Certain niembprs are very Indignant with the journal In question, as they contend Its opinions are reactionary, and that it would hamper the government, if It could, in the matter of justifiable reforms, especially In tho domain of education. They also de-Hcrtbe tho line taken by L'Actlon Soclale as an attempt to insinuate that the Llhoral party is antl-clerlcai. There Is not the slightest doubt that a section o( the govovnment aup-portora is In sympathy with Mr. Go-d-frol LanglolB, of Montreal, in his suggestions, and that they may bo heard from later, Mr. Langlols himself did not attend the causus. The caucus considered the advlBahlllty of calling the attention of eoolealaBtical authorities to the attacks ot their organ, and ot ask; Ing them to take steps to moderate those menaces. Montreal, Nov. 13.-Developments In the Hochelagtt hye-electlou today cantre-d chiefly around tho declaration of Hon. Rodolphe Lemleu.x, that the Liberal party would take no part In the contest between Mr. Codorro, the recently appointed Secretary of State, and Leopold Doyen', who was put In tho field at the last minute yester-dal. To the Herald this afternoon, Mr. Doyen stated that his friends would be hard at work tonight In all sec tions of tho division, but tliore would be no big public meetings before to morrow. Ho will hold a meeting to mori-ow, and would lay down his programme, As to whether Henri Bourassa would speak at any of his meetings ho did not yet know, as the Nationalist leader was In the country, Hon, lUodolf Lomloux, when asked what stand he wruld take on tho ciuas-tion, had said he would obey tho Instructions of Sir Wilfrid Laurler and keep out ot the fight. "I will leave tho Conservatives to tight out their own family stiuabbles," ho said.
