HAVE ONLY REACHED E THOSE INTERNAL ELEVATORS MUST BE PRECEDED BY , TOUR OF INVESTIGATION '* WILL FACE THE COURT Toronto, Fab, 3;-O. Moses and W. Jones, .who were arrested1 In Seattle two weeks ago, at the instance of. the Toronto police, on charge's-of stealing and forging elghty-ono Dominlox^ Express money orders arrived' in tha city today. .� , vO � ^ Ottawa, Feb. 3. - Probably the most important feature of the report of the Canadian Grain Commission tabled in the house today by Hon. Geo. E. Foster is that in order" to provide- adequate facilities for ' the handling of the future grain crops an effort would be made to: take full advantage of the completion of the Hudr-son's Bay railroad, and the Panama canaf. This could best be done, the commissioners says, by the construe^ tton of a system of interior elevators on the coast and Hudson's Bay; The suggestion is made that the board should be authorized by the government to investigate and report on the most suitable location of these elevators. The board takes it far granted that such a system of elovar tors would both be owned and operated by the government. : The'd recommends that sampler wheat markets should be established. in .Winnipeg-and..-- Fort William by: Sept 1, 1913, and that the railway' companies be required to grant facilities for taking samples at such points as shall be agreed upon by the railway commissioners and the grain commission.* .: Another suggestion is that > there should be- established in Winnipeg/ a laboratory for testing -the milling1 and bakingv qualities of , the Canadian grain. This* the commissioners'think, could be established. in connection; with the Winnipeg Agricultural -Col*' lege. Qthcu recommendations*' are that thare should be protection in the matter of inspection ; that there Should be a chief inspector for . the western division to have charge of-a weight department and that a system1!] of registration and cancellation of trie warehouse receipts should be ' established. The report states that thero; nre'in the west 2,225-country elevators with a capacity of .67,000,000 bushels.- The work of inspecting these elevators is done by the deputy inspector, hut owing to their number it is Impossible for him to do it thoroughly and Ihey can be inspected- only on' spe: cial occasions. The capacity 'of the terminal, elevators at -.Fort William and Port Arthur is given at 27,820,- ' 9 The family remedy for Cougna sntt Colds "Shiloh coati so little and does "o much J' ;100 bushels, as compared with 25,-' 700,-100 In 1911. Diipjpg 1912, prepar-' at ions were made for? additional ac-"i eorhmodatioh to the. extent of 12,-120,000 bushels. The commissioners point out that last year a number ,of complaints were received from Great Britain to the effect that several cargoes had arrived in a damp condition. This suggests the desirability of supervision of the western grain Avhile in transit through Canadian channels to the Atlantic steamers. The necessity of establishing of some system of inspections was dealt with at length! by the commission. The. report gives' at some detail the story of the trouble experienced last year with wet and tough grain and tells how a dryer was secured from the Armour Grain company with the object of putting this grain into marketable shape. The dryer was in operation for 44. days. An average of 4.85 cents per bushel was charged, and $1,7,349 was earned. The .report states that this was not the only illustration of the general inadequacy of existing facilities for the hauling, of gram, particularly in the cases of unusual emergency. The new government elevator, which will have a large dryer attached will he ready, it is said, by Sept. 1913. TRAGIC BANDITS ARE NTELLECTUAL BUNCH ON TRIAL IN PARIS THEY SEEM CHEERFUL-HOLD SOME ADVANCED VIEWS WILL E CATS BILL OF FARE CANADA PAYS THIRTY DOLLARS FOR GRUB FOR EXFERT 1 RATTERS ' Ottawa, Feb. 3. - Oliver Wilcox, Conservative member for North Essex, who-is something of a practical jaker/ftins given notice that lie will move 'for "The production of all letters, - papers and documents, relative to:an item of expenditure which appears on page 28 of the auditor-gen- ernl!.s report; namely, 'Food for cats, thirty dollars', and a detailed statement showing the hill of fare for the said cats, whether they are domestic cats or wild cats, and if they are still' in the service of the, government together with' all other cats leading up .-to the said expenditure of the public moiley." -ft is understood that the explanations, of-the rather.odd item of  expenditure is that in certain , ware houses,,.where supplies are kept there are' a /number of tabbies- to. pxotsct the-'stores from the rats and Apparently >they-are not self-supporting .'.(oats, or else - the 'officials in charge-think they would, be the better for - an occasional - change of' diet. Paris, Feb. 4.-The trial of the twenty-one "tragic bandits," who formed part of the admrably organized, perfectly disciplined and fully equipped phalanx^ of highwaymen that during six months held Paris and its suburbs in terror of their skilful and rapid exploits of murder, burglary and robbery, committed by means of stolen automobiles, arsenals or revolvers and carbines, and by an adroit use of the telephone service, began yesterday in the Court of Assizes. As they sat on long, high benches, each between two gendarmes, listening to the reading of the indictments, it was startling to note that, with few exceptions, they are very fine looking young men, their eyes beaming with intelligence, determination and energy. Strong character is outlined and stamped on their features. Many of the accused have written their reminiscences and kept diaries. Souday, a lad of 21, who used, a carbine with such fatal effect on his pursuers at Chantilly, has recounted his exploits in an epic poem, showing exceptional literary talent, and proclaiming a brand of Socialishi-'ilike that of Kropotkine, totally opposed to collectivism, Souday says:' "The development of mysticism and chastity, thus creating individual perfection, will eventually transform society." The prisoners see'nied in good humor, as they smiled and gazed at judge, lawyers, and public, and glanced frequently at the. large glass covered shew case, containing quantities of revolvers, carbines, ammunition and other articles of circumstantial evidence. ee MITFORD & CO, '�'y'i C+D 84 ;
