Dean Starr, in discussing a motion for the appointment of fiie corapanj', � said that in his opinion the lack of expressed appreciation of the sacrifices made reflected very badly on the church, and government. "We were all outspoken in urging them to talie up this admirable duty, but Tve have not even a 'God Speed' for them when they relingulsh their posts ' fa the arnij-. The men are very bitter about it," he said. The synod appointed Chancellor Da:; Amsterdam. Sept. IT.-Peter .1.

Cinada. ^'During the year 191S. it was decided to concentrate attention on three g:rGaC reforms," he said. "The aboli-' tion of the party patronage system InT pQlitical, child welfare work, for which a great educational campaign must, be carried out, and n pu'blic health with particular reference to the suppression of venereal diseases.' * �' A Credit to Soldiers. For the first issue of the social service magazine; Dr. Shearer said he had f secured a statement by Gen. Fother't; injgham in regard to the extent of ven j ereal disease amo'ng the soldiers of, Canada. This statement would give � Canadians reason to be proud of the* boys In khaki. The governments action in abolishing race track gambling is wariuly commended in the report and an appeal-is made upon the members of thfe church to avoid even the appearance; of evil in this connection at baz- aars and sales of work. , .The establishment of some substi-s tute for the saloon, to meet the social needs-of the men iii any community, 'wis urged in another' resolution and was carried after discussing the results of prohibition, in various districts. ; "Right Bev. Iteniel Williams, Bish-.:op of Huron, said prohibition called jior his support aa a citizen of Canada, (and yet he could not agree with it as ja Ctristlau measure. There was a .%enera] tendency, he said, to have 'things accomplished by legislation and holm memorandum. "I have stated that we are ready at an international conference to place ourselves on the basis of the neutral memorandum. .That is to say, we make this memorandum "our own ex-[cept as regards the question of Belgium and Alsace-Lorraine. Regarding Belgium, we differ only from the neu tral memoranduih on the question of compensation. This, -however, is question on which an answer mast be made to reach a compromise by verbal discussion. We must maintain our standpoint regarding AIsac�-I.orraine. We are ready to explain that standpoint when the point is debated." M. Troelstra expresses the view that the replies of Ebert form a basis for Socialist peace negotiations.

The debate on the question was sometimes heated, the radicals being made to foel that their wishes were not being respected by the executive. A motion was submitted by' J. Ji. Bruce of Toronto, which asked that a committee be appointed to approve the documents. He pointed out summary action had been taken in the United States, Great Britain and France. Sec retary-Treasurer Draper moved in an amendment that the matter be left in the hands of the incoming executive council. � The speakers for the faction in the congress which did not favor leaving the matter entirely in the hands of the council were Michael Bnhay, Montreal, and Joseph Taylor, Victoria. The latter moved for a referendum on the manifesto before it was accepted as a policy of the congress. The congress gave Mr. Draper's amendment a large audience. After the vote had been taken, Delegate Wheatley, Bankhead, Alta., asked that the union he represented at the frani' ing of the manifesto. Hugh Stevenson, Toronto, contended the council would he sleeted by the trade unionists in the convention and not by a "bunch, of "Reds and I. W. "W.'s". Mr. Wheatley replied indignantly: "J am the representative here of 9,000 anion men." -'  Secr�tary'� Report P. M. Draper presented his annual report as secretary-treasurer of the congress. It showed the receipts to have been $28,405, expenditures $14,-442, and balance in bank $21,000. Th� membership is now 117,498, an in-creaie of 35,811. The report also indicated the steady growth ot \mion-Ism among police forces in Canada as well as municipal employees. Police forces unionized and. affiliated with the congress lately were Montreal, Windsor and Hamilton. Friends of President Wa'tters awaited word of him from Ottawa as to the action to be taken there by the; local on his credentials. A search of the constitution ot the: congress revealed the fact that Mr. Watters can sit in convention until a successor Is appointed, but to be eligible for reelection, must be properly credited.
