The records :of inspection show that tlve lighting appliances of the car yfam In perfect condition and the evidence of the train employees and the 8.ur-viving passengers is to the eftept that there was not the slightest odor of obcaping gas during the night or morning. Tlie evidence is so clear' tjiat there was no explosion before the,accident or after. "The train was being heated by steam from the locomotive and the individual- car heater was, of course, riot being . operated. The cooking range had gose out during the night and had not yet been re-lighted. It would be impossible, therefore for the fire to start from eitlier of these sources. .

It is also:-suggested :ifliat each province stifiiild take powers to appropriate i lands required for settlement purposes...... Federal Govt.

"One of the gravest situations confronting Canada," says the memorandum, "4s j the necessity of making suitable prpvlslpn for'the flcod pf alien Immigration that -will move our way as soon as transportation is available, tlnless steps are taken to make certain that a large proportion of these irtimigrants %o to .the. land, they will fill our large urban centres and bring about conditions of unemployment and unrett that will be exceedingly detri-nieiital to Canada(-as a .whole." �;'rhe memorandurii'assumes," for the J^urp^lie,: ptVdlscuflslon only," .that 'each "province.;de8irmg to;secure fed-' 'erai,' co-o'peratioii �Mu8t determine for it.01t;j..a nuriib'e'rfd^^hings,.'including: .

It Is regarded that there should be created a government land settlement board, composed of the minlBter of colonization and a representative of each province. The board, should be consultativo and advisory, and; not arljitrary. It should meet at leitbt once annually for the purpose of reviewing and working out any policies that may be adopted for' land' settlement throughout Canada. The final suggestion made by the memorandum is that there should be-established In connection-with'the department of immigration and coloni-zatidh -a social welfare bureau to assist In the care .of. the immigrants. Kf ATE POLICE TORONTO, Dec. 19.-If the police, who. are on strike here, will return to duty, immediately, officials of their union, .who were summarily dismissed. on Tuesday, will be reinstated. This was the decision arrived at by the board of police comrniasioners this afternoon after many conferences. The question of recognition by the commissioners of the charter granted the ; union by the Trades and Labor Cpuu-) cil should be left ,to the decision of I the attorney-general of Ontario, in the I opinion of the commissioners. This ' offer of the commissioners for settlement of the strike will be discussed by the policemen at a mass meeting this,afternoon. F IN iPilCAIED QUEBEC, Dec. 19.-The alleged exemption scandal in the Quebec district took a s'udden turn today when four well known citizens were Implicated, 'a complaint was lodged in the police court against them and two of the men ikiplicated appeared voluntarily this, morning before Judge Lang-lols.
