Robert Rogers which led to the resignation of the minister ot public works was tabled lu tlio commons by the prime minister this afternoon: Ottawa, Auk. 15: My dear Mir Robert-Never during the six years that I have endeavored to faithfully mid loyally servo yon as the leader of our party do I know ot any part of my efforts that have ever been kept secret from you. In that same spirit o� loyalty and devotion lot mo say a plain word and it is this that in my opinion, as a party we aro face to face with very serious dilil-culttos, dllileultios to my mind, that liavo largely ',>ecu created by our kindness to our opponents. Tlio question with mo is, "what aro wo doing about it?" Our opponents aro strong, active itii'l hopeful. They do not hesitate in adopting tlio most sordid methods imaginable. They havo been covering the country for months with literature most damnable of character, tnoy have a strong press through, which they are promoting the most cowardly and malovolent campuign. I am often the target for many of their attacks, attacks which they aro unable to support will: any substance. However, with thorn it Is not a question of substance, of truth, or of common decency. 'J hey simply follow their instructions to attack any one that they regard as a menace to their success. And what aro wo doing? Nothing that 1 know of except going on treating promoters of this scandalous campaign as gentlemen. Surely it is plain that thero is only ono end to all this. Hard and difficult as it is for me to do so, let me say that If our present Inaction and Indecision are to continue, may I with feelings of greatest possible respect and with feelings of very deepest regret, ask that at your convenience I bo relieved from sharing the results that will be sure to follow continued inaction and indecision. Never in my long experience have I witnessed more clearly than 1 do today the opportunity that rests with us for great good. We have only to remember that we are In a war in which Canada's all is at stake. If we do not win then the plans for Canada's future development will not be laid in our own capital city of Ottawa, but in the capital city of some foreign country. There Is no use deluding ourselves upon this point, for the great, fat; tempting prize like Canada would never be allowod to escape were she to go undefended by tho full power of the victorious British "empire. Canada's hope for the fulfillment of her full share In this groat struggle largely rests with the party that you represent, therefore, our responsibilities aro great. Wo must bo equal to them, and above all, we must bo equal to our obligations to our gallant soldiers. Under tho banner of loyalty, decision and action wo can accomplish those high purposes. We cannot afford to delay, wo should waste no time tarrying and disputing with our opponents whose apparent purpose today is to prolong parliament until tho end of Its term In tho hope that if they succeed in this they will bo ablo to add a now chapter to their slanderous campaign by attempting to make it appear to tho country that we are hopelessly helpless. When Sir Wilfrid Laurler, two months ago, refused your most generous proposition for a coalition surely there was only ono course open, and that was to proceed determinedly and fearlessly with our. task, I can of course well realize that you delayed in honest hopeful expectation that some action for union would bo taken at the Winnipeg convention. True you have not had the opportunity to know and understand tho methods and designs of those In Western Canada who stood up In tho convention In support of Lanrlerism. Under normal conditions In times ot peace It Is always inadvisable and dangerous to hnvo cither truck or trade with your enemies when you know them to bo such, it Is a million times more dangerous at this solemn moment when tho fate of our country Is hanging In tho balance. Canadian people understand rliat at tho outbreak of war, and every day since, the government has had forced upon them conditions the like of which no government in Canada had ever beforo been called upon to meet. Loyal Canadians everywhere realize tills and f am confident they appreciate to tho fullest the many dlllicultles tho government, have had to contend with, and above all they know and understand the sfjfdid means being employed b>' Sir Wilfrid Laurler as the leader of our domestic and foreign enemies to defeat our efforts to faithfully fulfill, in Canada's name, a full and worthy part lu this great war. Therefore, to my end our course Is plain. It is thiB: "Carry on" without delay and with resolute determination to assist to the fullest, extent of Canada's power In preserving the unity of empire and future destiny of our own country. As for my.self, lot me say whatever tho outcome may be 1 will in future, as in the past, ever remain loyal and devoted to my country and to my friends, prepared at all times to respond whenever and wherever duty calls. Yours sincerely, (Sgd.) ROBERT ROGERS. FIRE PREVENTION AT FALL FAIRS. Tho fire chiefs of Canada are alive to the necessity for education of the general public in the enormous number of fires in Canada and the consequent lieay monetary losses therefrom. The fall fairs offer a very favorable opportunity for furthering their educational plan and should be utilized. Exhibits of fire-fighting equipment, short talks on tho dangers of careless house-keeping, neglected chimneys, carelessness with lights in barns and sheds, etc., will be helpful. Printed mottoes bearing the information of Canada's annual total of fire lossos, as compared with other countries, and the number of lives lost through carelessness in the use of coal oil, gasolene, etc, would be effective. Today the fire chief's reputation depends upon Iil3 ability to prevent fires, not on his expertness in extinguishing them after they break out. This result can only bo achieved by ceaseless education of the public, by continual and rigid inspection of premises for fire risks and by tho enforcement of by-laws providing for the abatement of hazardous conditions.

Strict economy is needed in tho use of all food stuffs by each and every Individual householder. Our food supplies must be conserved, but \they should not bo hoarded. Of what / use Is a mine unopened, a forest untouched or land unfilled? By tho conservation of our food supplies, wo mean that they should bo used in the wisest possible way and shared equally. We should eliminate superfluities and luxuries and eat tho things that are substantial, plain and nourishing. There are many foods produced in Canada, such as corn, peas, beans, oats and barley, which are not used as much as they could and should be. Unless provision Is made to care for and properly use the garden vegetables, much of this material will be wasted. Perishable things should bo canned wherever possible.

Toronto, Aug. 21.-"It will take positive evidence to convince tho country," says tho Toronto Globe (Liberal) in an editorial this morning, "that the cabinot episode has not boon carefully staged by the prime minister and Mr. Rogers in collusion. "The suspicion may do nn injustice to Sir Robert Borden, but be can disprove It by proving that Mr. Rogers will, not bo an agent of the government, doing Its election work, with the promise ot high office in his pockot if he enn repeat his success of 1911, "Thero aro obvious reasons why it would be expedient to disown Mr. Rogers during an election campaign. His name is not an asset. Sir Robert Borden must show that the separation is not a temporary make-believe, and that tho reportod disagreement is not a sham flpht arranged so as to give the leader of tho government the credit of having plucked up a degree of courage. The events of the next few days may demonstrate -whether the premier deserves credit or not. If Sir Robert is responsible for the omission of his colleague he has removed an obstacle to the formation ot a truly national government. "In any event high-minded Canadians are glad that Mr. Rogers Is out ot the ministry."

MucRobbie, a well known Hamilton physician, who was found dead on (lie premises of the Crescent Oil Company Sunday night, is that lie was the victim of a brawl. That Harry Smith, manager of the Crescent Company, Walter Scott, architect, and .1. ,). Me-Aullffe, real estate man, who were in tho room when Assoltine, the caretaker, discovered the dying man, were decidedly under the influence of liquor, Is admitted. They were sleeping so soundly that Assoltine made no attempt to arouse them. The post mortem, it is claimed, revealed that .Mac-Robbie also had considerable liquor In his stomach. MacRobbie's black eye Indicates that he was struck in the face and the police believe that he foil hack-ward with terrific force, striking his head against the Iron basket found under the body, fracturing his skull. They account for Die blood stains higher up on the wall by tlio belief that the dying man whose right hand was> soaked with blood which flowed from the'wound In his head, pitched around In a vain effort to get to hlB feet. With his left hand lie tried to loosen his collar, gouging a piece of flesh out of his neck in the effort. A small bit 06 flesh was found under his thumb nail, the police claimed. Today they have a woman witness, residing within a short distance of the scene of the tragedy who claims that she heard calls for help on the night in question. According to the carotaker's story yesterday he found the body at 10.30. Constable Thompson says he was talking with the caretaker in front ot the building at that hour and he made no mention of the trouble within. The police aro subpoenaing a largo number of witnesses for the inquest, which will be resumed Wednesday night. One of the points that will be carefully probed will be the reason for the long dolaj In calling for the doctor or the police. Military Cross Hero % - CAPT.
