April violent scvne the like of which has not been wit- nessed in the House since the JHI-.I- OUK "Women, wjne and grail" inci- dent of three sessions ago, broke out tonight and for upwards of an hour the din was deafening, lists shaken, calls for the sergeant at the appeals of the speaker. Par- tial quiet had been secured Foster re- ferred to the rule that no membar an oftenshe or disagreeable thing about another member. During the pandemonium Foster was heard to say that Laurier evi- dently preferred to make a false ra- ther than a true statement. That led to further noise. Again Sir amis were yelled and gusts of oan.v proceedcd to go on with Ws speecVi passion swept the House from moorings. Jt arose in this way. lts and again Foster persisted in a re- traction. "He has said I manipulat Mr. Foster. addressing the Housi; in the afternoon, called upon the go- vernment to prosecute the men who ed trust funds. I throw it back in his teeth, shouted Foster, -amid an in- describable din. "This the matter to a -head.

This remark was wildly cheered by the Liberals and Foster wa.s ou his feet immediately. "I demand a retraction of those j apply them but to asked Fos, heard it from the .lips of the. first minister." Foster once more demanded an ao- ology and retraction. Laurier spoke his head and his- supporters went wild. The House by this time hart completely got out of the control of thespeaker. It appeared as if the sitting would break up immediately in disorder. Foster still his feet, smiling grimly at his tor- mentors. Ijaurier at length consent- ed to hear the ruling. Soea ker Marcil ruled that t-he words. "I nevermanipulated trust woutfl- have no meaning- unless to any member. This he did not think the Premier had done. "To whom else could the Premier he said angrily. Sir Wilfrid calmly went on speak- ing, ignoring Mr. Foster's demand for retraction. Nothing daunted Foster rose again and, this- time on a pobit of order. He was hooted down by the government side and the din lasted for several minutes in spite of OXFORD BEAT CAMBRIDGE Putney, April. sixty-sixth annual 'Varsity race between crews representing Oxord and Cambridge was rowed in the Thames between Putney and Morilake today and was won by Oxord by three lengths. Time 19 mins. 0 seconds. Tens of thousands hurried to the banks of the Thames between Putney and Mortlake to watch the event which shares with the Derby in un- dying enthusiasm with British sport- ing public. The spectacle was one of the rare- est sights of the world and it chanced that this morning dawned clear and sunny although somewhat cold. In the absence of wind, the conditions were favorable for rowing as well as for the comfort of the spectators. The Oxord crew was in the lead at Crab Tree. The crews were level at Hambersmith Bridge and still were level at .Chiswick and at Barnes bridge. The popular hero of the race was the 'Cambridge stroke who was stroke through the victories against Oxford and who defeated the Har- vard eight in 1906. Afternoon papers which are printed on blue paper are circulating everywhere. The two crews were in perfect condition. The official time of the winning crew at the various points on the course is as follows: Craven Steps, 2 min. 3 tec.; Mile Post, 4 min. 5 sec.; Hammersmith 7 min.'5 sec.; Chiswick, 11 min. 58 sec.; Barnes Bridge, 16 rain. 29 Finish 19 min. 50 sec. It is not customary in England to take the time of the vanquished crew. The Cambridge men slowed down as soon as the Oxford boat passed the finish post.

Dixon chief engineer began .operations at Mink Lake twenty-five miles west of Edmonton and carried the work through to a few miles beyond the.j Macleod River. The line surveyed' practically parallels the survey for the Grand Trunk Pacific as far as .the Macleod. From there it is sup- posed the C. R. will make a de- tour south and will parallel the G. T.

With the one hundred dollars .Tom- linson came west, visiting Edmonton, Regina, Revclstoke, and Calgary. In Calgary he once more went broke and his thoughts turned once more to the veteran scrip. This time Tomlinson approached the 'Al- berta with a plausible tale. He wanted to start life again. Be- fore proceeding very far with thc nft- gotiations the Alberta- Locators took Tomlinson to a well known firm of solicitors where he swore he had not previously tried to dispose of his vet- eran's grant.
