There is trouble brewing because of the over- seas management and military expen- ditures The use of the Ross Rifle! was persisted in and its purchase con- tinued long after its use had ceased. There was little co-ordination of over- seas needs and materials bought here and shipped over. There was lavish expenditure and off-hand decisions were made.

His departure will strengthen the government and tend to revive confidence in the govern- ment in the minds of ils supporters." Bnird and Botterell of Winnipeg. "They will not." was the reply.
