The debate on the address 'which has been dragging along at a rather wearlome pace for the pasi couple of days, braced up, and was enlivened by a number of exciting interchanges between members. Hon.

He said that in this fight the Liberals had been at their old game of appealing to race mid religious prejudice, and that they were disappointed that, despite their eCfortK, their policy of reciprocity had suffered a smashing defeat. He was quite prepared to accept responsibil- ity for all that had happened in the constituency, and was prepared to justify the Conservatives for the ar- rests they had made. F. B. Carvell, of Carleton, 'who re- gilied for the. Liberals, started up sev- eral riots by the vigor of his remarks. He declared that outside the -province, of Manitoba, no such prostitution of justice had ever been witnessed in Canada, He had a number of warm passages with Arthur Meighen, tho member for Portage la Prairie, as to whether or not Walkinshaw, one of Ihe Liberal workers arrested, had been allowed to see counsel or not. Carvell -declared that he had not, caused Mr. Meighen to make a speech later on to prove that he had. Later in the evening session, there were a number of lively passages-at- arms between A. C.

They had gone in, knowing that ii was a constituency of varying races, creeds, ami nationalises, and adopted their old operates inclusively. The matter is 'lot'' of nineteen years ago anil that to come .up in the house at an jjriy tile Present time was well calcu- 'nted to show the progress that of operation of per annum. The Board of Trade is considering this matter, and may take it to the com- mission. Several of the coal operators in tliii immediate district are complaining about the high freight rates on coal generally, and especially on coal screenings. A lower rate on the lat- ter commodity may be asked for, if arrangements for a hearing can be made in time. Although some nites which discrim- inate against Lethbridge have been adjusted dirring the past year, there several still which require the attention of the commission. The Hoard of Trade has been in communi- cation with the freight otlicials of the Berlin, Nov.

The cam paign was on an alleged alliance be- tween the Conservative party and thc Orange order, "the slavery of Conser- vatism under tho Orange whip."
