There he met Colonel Machin, representative of -the department of justice and Colonel Caruthers. Colonel Machin asked him, .to what-he attributed the troubles in Quebec, and he told the colonel they were due to the 'fool hardy way the Federal detee-I tives were handling the arrest of alleged absentees.'' He added he believed the government had chosen men who did not inspire confidence. Mr. Lavergne wa'jd he. agreed to meet, tlie disturbers that Sunday night and Colonel Machin told him that if lie stopped the trouble it would be well received by Ottawa.
