MADC IN (CANADA mo E.WGILLETT COMPANY LIMITED TORONTO. OlMT. Montrr-M. winnipbo J GE O'Connor Resigned Over Quarrel With a Clerk AIM -Gnrnn 171 Ottawa, April 11.-The minister of naval service, introduced a bill in the house thin ii iter noon to amend the naval discipline act. The purpose of the.bill, he said, was to ensure lliat the discipline on the ships of the Canadian navy would he similar to that in the Imperial, the Australian anal New Zealand navies. Tho bill was givon'first reading. Mr. Lomieux drew the attention of the minister of militia to a report printed in the press that grand jurors visiting an Ontario Jail found that it returned soldier was being held bo-cause he had no employment. Major-General Mewburn promised to look into the matter. Wants Investigation J. A. Ethler, Two Mountains, read from the Ottawa Citizens the report stating that a band of deserters, draftees and Germans had fortified themselves in the Petawawa district and are determined to defy the military authorities,/ Speaker Rhodes expressed the view that the matter was not one of sufficient importance to take tip the time ot the house in this way. Ho suggested that the member should put his question on the order paper. Mr. Kthier said l'� .wished to observe, that the men in question Include a number of deserters, from Kingston. Was the government aware of the fact and what steps have been taken to deal with the situation? He suggested that this would be a good opportunity to call on Quebec troops to quiet the trouble in Ontario. Sir Robert Borden replies that he had no Information on the subject until he saw the article in the morning newspaper. The matter had been cailed to the attention of the minister of justice and the minister of militia. If the fact proved to be as stated, effective measures would be taken by the government.  O'Connor's Resignation j. E. Armstrong inquired ot the minister of labor as to the truth of the report that W. F. O'Connor, cost of living commissioner, had resigned. Hon. T. W. Crothera replied' that tli ere. con id be no better explanation of the matter than the correspondence which had passed between himself and Mr. O'Connor. He thereupon read the following letter addressed by Mr. O'Connor to himself on April 4: "Dear-Sir:-I hereby resign aa your commissioner and ^examiner under order in council re cost of living, of November, 1916. The resignation takes effect immediately. My reason is that I have failed to secure from you that support in the administration of the duties committed to me, to which support I have conceived myself entitled and without which. I cannot possibly further carry out with effect such duties." "And if insubordinate employees may go over my head to you there will be an end to all discipline and all effective work. Petty Quarrel The minister in his reply refers to a complaint made to him by one of the female employees of the department and recounts how Mr. O'Connor had taken umbrage because he. the minister, wished to inquire into the case. Mr. Crother's lettor concludes: "The simple question is whether a minister at the dictation of a superior officer of his department, is to refuse to make personal inquiry^ at the request of a clerk who alleges unfair treatment. I have never refused nor shall I refuse, to hear the humblest clerk in the department who feels that ho or she (in this case a young woman apparently exemplary in conduct and character), has .been unfairly treated. However, you have chosen your course which you had a right to take, and to which I have no right to object." . Mr. Crothers Baid he thought this answered the question. Women's' Franeh lae � The house resumed in committee consideration of the bill to oonfer the electoral franchise to women. H. A. Former, Labette, stated that the movement was one ot the forms of feminist spreading around the world and that the matter should he well studied before the government decided to much such a radical reform. He deplored the introduction of the bill as he thought that a woman's place wbb in the home. Mr. Dutremblay, Laurier-Outremont, remarked that there was no~doubt women wanted the vote in some provinces of the Dominion at any rate. He caused condiserablo laughter by adding the two days before the general election he was told there were 2400 women on the list in his constituency. But after the election he was surprised to learn that 3400 nad voted. He had been informed, he said, that some women had come in from Ontario to vote. While expressing himself in favor of the principle of the bill, Mr. Dutremblay urged that franchise was a matter"-which should be left in tho hands of the provincial authorities. British Army in Frnrioe and Belgium, April 11.--The Germans are particularly desirous of capturing Mes-sines Ridge and Wytschaeto and preBS-f d their attacks" there hard during the day.

FOR SALE To clear up my stock before leaving for Calgary, I offer at a bargain :Qne Three Passenger 'Roadster One Touring Car (Special to the H�"-at Edmonton, April 11.-Consternation haB been created among the farmers of the province over rumours that the formaldehyde stores in the country have been tampered with by alien enemies. Hundreds of telephone and telegraph messages and inquiries have reached the department of agriculture during' the past couple of days and these inquiries have come from practically every part of _the province. - There are various conjectures as to the reason or likelihood of such a thing happening.' It is freely suggested that possibly the rumour has been started by alien enemies in order to delay the seeding. The remarkable thing about it is, that the telephone calls to the department came simultaneously from almost every part of the province. Enquiries of some of the druggists shew that most of the formalin that is sold in the west is made by one firm, with factories in different parts of Canada and be^ng a Canadian company cannot believe that there could be anything wrong with the supply at that end. The drug is handled throughout the provinces by the druggists, hardware merchants and grocers in-the small places. It is generally used by all f&i'iners for treating their seed as a prevention for smut. AT THE MAJESTIC Mary Garden ' in "The Splendid Sinner" at the Majestic tonight.
