April 4.-The public sal-tories were crowded when the house opened thiss afternoon in anticipation of a keen debate over the Quebec rioting, but the crowd was disappointed because the debate was put over until tomorrow at tlie request of Sir Robert Borden who announced that the government had certain proposals to Bake which would be laid before parliament ou Friday. Colonel Currie. who was to have opened the debate, said he was willing to accept the suggestion of the premier, more particular)}' as it is in the Interests of everybody that all information should be available, before the liscussion of the matter takes place Navigation Companies When the house met J. E. Armstrong of Lambton introduced a bill to amend the railway act. He explain-9d that it was the same biii he intro-Juced in 1915. his object being to bring inland navigation companies under the jurisdiction of the railway board. 51r. Armstrong urged the de-jirability of this step being taken by the government and claimed that it is in this respect Canada was behind other countries. The bill was read a first time. Hcsdsianfi For Graves In reply to Sir Sam Hughes, Major General Mewburn read a cablegram received from Sir George Perley relative to the adoption of a one-pattern headstone for all Canadian graves for soldiers. The cablegram read: "Imperial War Grave Commission lias decided that there should be equality of treatment for all graves of all officers and men abroad and that this principle should be carried out by the erection over all graves in war cemeteries abroad of headstones of uniform dimensions though with some variety ot pattern. The English regiments may decide to have a distinctive pattern for each regiment, but after full consultation with'Canadian corps and the military authorities here. Sir Edward Kemp and I found tile general consensus of opinion that we should have a uniform headstone and inscription for all Canadians with 10' As Cost of Living Commissioner -Other Resignations May Follow Have You This Collection of Pathe Records ?

O'Connor, K.C., lias resigned as coat of living commissioner to the minister of labor. The resignation if. is understood, was handed in today. When questioned this morning by the Canadian Press, Limited, Mr. O'Connor declined to state any reason for his resignation, Mr. O'Connor added that the resignation was entirely voluntary on his part. Mr. O'Connor still holds his position as counsel to the minister of justice and the solicitor-general, but whether he intends to retain these is not known. The cause of Mr. O'Connor's resignation is causing much speculation here and it is fully expected that the matter will be brought up in parliament. It is probable, ii is said, that other resignations in the cost ol living branch will follow.

He was told that the amount ot gold in reserve in charge of the receiver general when war was declared was 597,-13M26. On March 1, 1918, the gold reserve was $120,005,662. In connection with money loans obtained previous to the war, Mr. Trahan informed that the government had. not decided to suspend during the continuance of the war the discretion it exercised in respect to the sinking fund of said loans. , A further question by Mr. Trahan brought the reply that no foreign loans obtained by the Dominion government would become due during the fiscal year, 1918-19.
