The fire started in the western part  of the new building and watching it  one was reminded of the fire there  several years ago. It seemed to b?  a renewal of the old scene. The cause  of the fire is not known.  The building is pretty well dilapidated and so far no decision has  been made as to whether it will be rebuilt again, as was done after the  previous fire.  There was about $6000 insurance  on the building and contents.  Part of the building, west of where  scene of the greater part of the conflagration was is very old, the building of it dating back several thousand  years after the great electrician, Noah  made the arc light.

Taylor Reviews  Features of  Formation of Union Government  One.of the splendid features of the  morning session of the Liberal-Conservative convention held at Mission  City last Thursday was the interesting address of Senator Taylor, who  spoke while the credential committee  and the resolutions committee were  arranging the preliminary details of  the convention.' j  Col. Taylor was received with loud  applause. He first thanked the electors for the unvarying kindness extended to him by the whole Gisirict  during the fourteen years he had carried the "banner of the party. Ke  ��������� could say without reservation he had  left it without any sore feeling between any single elector and himself  Liberal or Conservative. If there  were any personal ill-will he had yet  to learn of it. Referring to his appointment to the Senate, Col. Taylor  said that if that had not occurred he  would have sought nomination at that  convention.       ,,  Canada today had a unique situation���������the first Union government  formed since Federation regardless  of party. That situation was a  .tribut,oJ:p.J;he .genius, for leadership  of Sir Robert Borden'; the-prime-mm  ister.     After Sir Robert had returned from England  he was convinced  that  something  radical  must  be  effected   in  Canada   to  increase     nud  keep   up   their   fighting   forces       in j  France and that there was no prospect of doing so by voluntary enlistment.     Ho was  also  convinced  that  no single party could pass conscription   in   Canada   and   that .co-operation of  the two  great parties     was  essential.      Overtures to Sir Wilfrid  Laurier failed.       Sir Wilfrid laid   it  down in the beginsing of .the sesr-ion  of 1916 that he would not stand ?or  conscription in Canada, that it would  never come with his consent and that  notwithstanding  that  the  course   of  events had altered the situation. Sir  Robert's   fixed-  purpose  Avas   to   get  the best union government.     He had  accomplished  that and ho  had  now  got every province iu Canada represented in the cabinet, with the exception   of   Prince   Edward   Island   and  British Columbia, by outstanding Liberals.     In New Brunswick by Frank  Carvell, the fiercest and most uncompromising opponent  of tho    Borden  Government.      Ho had fought right  up   to   the   last   minute   before   tho  House closed.     From Nova Scotia by  Mr. McLean, the former attorney-general there,  when    Premier    Murrny  could  not respond to  the invitation.  Ballantyne from Quebec, who had resigned   the  commissionership  of  the  Montreal   harbor  board,  because  the;  Conservatives   replaced   the   Liberals;  in   1911.    The  great   national   crisis j  had   altered   his   attitude   of   a   few!  years ago.     From Ontario  they  had  the official leader, Hon. N. W. Rowellj  one of the rising men of Canada, a!  man   of   the   highest   type   in   every!  respect,   reputed   an   idealist;     also,,  Major-General   Mewburn,   recognized,  as a stalwart adherent of his party j  and Hugh Guthrie, who distinguished ;  himself in the House of Commons by i  the vigorous manner in which he sup- \  ported conscription.     From-Manitoi*";. \  Mr. Crerar, head of the Grain Grow-,  ���������        i  ers' Association, representative of the j  greatest   single   factor   In   Canadian!  commercial   life.    Without  their  co-i  i  operation it would be impossible to '���������  guarantee the success of any govern-:  rnent of this kind in the prairies  where the representation has been  largely against the Borden govern-!  ment up to the present. Saskatche-'  wan was represented by Mr. Calder,  one of the most active figures In  Canadian Liberalism. Premier Sif-  ton came from Alberta where he had  shown great skill in the government  of that province.  Col. Taylor considered they could  not have a more complete coalition.  He referred  to     Senator    Bostock's  [absurd assertion that B. C. had heen  ostracised,, as they had only Mr. Eur-  rell   and  no   Liberal   representative.  Mr. Bdstock must have spoke without  reflection as Saskatchewan    had1' no  Conservatives.    In   New   Brunswick,  Mr.   Hazen  had  given  place  to  Mr  Carvell,   a   Liberal.    Upon   analysis :  it would be seen, therefore, that there  was no ground for local grievance in  B. C.  When  these ministers had joined  the   Borden   government   a   working,  agreement had  to  be arrived, at  to  avoid factional strife in the constituencies.'   It was agreed to accept as  a government candidate for each constituency any member who had supported the military service act. There  were 24 vacancies by death and other  wise and 23  new seats.    It was resolved  to give a  larger representation to Liberalism to make the coalition more acceptable.    It was decided to givet he Liberals four seats in  B. C. One of the four seats was from  the .old district of New Westminster.  They'have left^if'tb' them- to accom- -  plish that but the mininster expected  them  to get together and form  the  two new consituencies return one Liberal and one Conservative.  The military service act is the great  issue  of  this  election,   declared  the  former member.    They had two B. C.  battalions broken up to reinforce others because B. C. was unable to obtain recruits to maintain them under  (.he voluntary system.    All over Canada there was a shortage and unless  they got men they could not maintain  their  four divisions  in  the  fighting  line.    The voluntary system had failed and it was for them to choose between the Union    government    and  Laurierism, to decide to support compulsory service or Laurier Liberalism  If  Laurier were  returned  to  power  lie said, he would make another attempt to secure recruits by volunteering; if that failed have a referendum.  or an appeal to the Imperial government as to what was the best course.  His actions   would bo   governed    by  these   referendums.       The     Senator  then showed wherein he believed the  voluntary system was not equitaoie.  The sparsely populated province    of  B. C. had sent more men to the front  than the whole of Quebec and  IL C.  had only seven parliamentary representatives and Quebec had 'jo.       "everything in connection with ihe government of Canada had been administered in that proportion, yet B. C.  had sent more men to fight the battles of the Empire than Quebec. Voluntaryism should not be perpetuated  because it was a rank injustice to all  Canada.    No  one  part    of    Canada  should  be allowed  to stand out.     It  should be made to do its duty, proportionately, like the rest.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's .attitude was  stay at home, provide food, munitions, etc.  The responsibility of providing  men should rest upon the state and  not upon individuals. Another mo3t  important question was the provision for the dependents  Pensions   were   utterly  Their soldiers were not  diers.    They owe  own men.      They  of soldiers,  inadequate,  regular sol-  far more to their  must restore them  to the same position of relative  comfort he occupied before the war  . and maintain his dependents as if  ! the soldier had remained at home.  i The taxation for such must be distri-  i buted over   the    community.

Tho Montreal Gazete regards it as  possible that the. expectations: .��������� of  those who anticipate a -.solid Quebec  contingent against the government of  Sir Robert Borden,.; may be disappointed.     The Gazette says:        i--.  "There are extremo men in Quebec, and they have made much noise  of late. Extreme men. of another  sort, in other provinces have been  milking opposing-noises. Those who  confound noise, with movement are  liable to bo misled...

Sev'lgny when ho took  the responsibility of the government's  acts upon his shoulders, and, sought  aud secured tho approval of the voters. ������������������  The   Gazotto  goes  on  to  say   that  Quebec   has,always  been  a  province  of conservative views; and that'even  its  most successful  Liberal administrations have always been conducted  on  lines calculated fo secure tho 'approval  of   tho  conservative element*  'in the constituencies.     It sees in the  furious  anti-conscription     campaign,  prosecuted in Quebec by'certain-poli-  ticinn.s, .the possibility of a situation  arising thai will, drive men of conservative views  from   tho side  the  disturbers uphold.     In the Gazotto'a opinion an  appeal to  tho cooler judgment  of   the   solid   elements   of   thy  province   by  men  of  repute in  their  constituencies is likely to be productive of results that will be entirely disappointing   to   those   who   expect   to  j profit politically by rounding up a so'  id Quebec, and making that province  an Ishmaelite in the confederation.  Whether or"not the Gazette's judgments turn out to be correct one  thing is clear. The time is bound to  of^party ambitions.
