Hall superintendent of motive power for the company from the West. Ouly comparatively minor matters of o'e- tail remain to be settled. The company has been successful in its contention for separate and .dis- tinct schedule for the eastern and western lines but the.actual coMposi- tion of the schedule committee'.... to conduct the eastern negotiations has not yet been definitely settled.

France Will Expel Castro during the past provincial electior made the transaction a basis lor charges and insinuations against the provincial treasurer. The Legislature submitted to the Royal Commission a series of ques- tions based upon the charges and in sinuations made against Mr. Calder. To these questions specific replies are made. The answers are favorable to Mr. Calder all along the line. The commission finds four instances Ihat are contrary to charges made, that the books were manufactured by un- ion labor and not in scab shops, that the text books are equal to any text books in existence in the United States; that they are superior to those in Manitoba and they were purchased for less money. The weightiest charge j against Mr. Calder was, one alleging Frank, Ap.-'l offices of the! graft.-iri the transaction.

In the opinion of all the city offi- cials who have worked on and studied this power proposition the plant as proposed will be one capable of very economical operation and one through which, we feel confident, the rates for the consumer will be appre- ciably reduced. It will be a plant well built in every particular.; the building is fireproof and all .other items contained in it are the best made for economical operation and lasting qualities. At present, oins light and .water ser- vice is in a very precarious condi- tion. The building is not fireproof and the Government boiler inspectors are permitting the operation of the plant, in its present condition, only OD the understanding that the new plant will be built within a year or that several thousand dollars, be: ex- pended on the existing equipment. Mr. Robinson's figures submitted to the council show that putting the v- sj 'operation of the plant in its worst light, the increased revenue from the following new consumers alone, will more than A TERRIFIC GALE SWEPT ONTARIO New York and Ohio Also Life Reported Lost School Chim- neys Fall Before Great Wind London, Ont., April gale blown off and Brakeman Garrod of which struck Landou today blew down St. Thomas who was on top of a car the chimney of Aberdeen school on .carried with the flying roof.
