BRADY NEW TRAFFIC MANAGER Halifax, Feb. is re- ported in ollicial circles that F. P. Brady ot the Intercol- onial Railway Commission has been appointed traffic manager of the Dominion Coai and -Steel Company, replacing H. Warren, resigned. Mr. Brady was formerly general supcrin- .tendcnt of the Lake division of the C.P.R. GOVERNMEMT WILL CONTROL PRESS Government Has Lost Heavily Because Of the Collapse Ottawa, Feb. the Commons Friday the vote of for the Quebec bridge was before tbe com- mittee of supply. After discussion Mr. Bluine raised tbe question of re- sponsibility for the lives sacrificed and money lost in the last catastoplie. Who was responsible, he asked. Mr. Graham's answer disclosed die fact that something like had been paid out to the Phoenix Bridge Co. up to -the time the government took the work over. Technically the money was paid by the Quebec Bridge Company but the government furnish- ed the money. Mr. Baker recalled the fact that there had been no expert oversight. The engineer put in charge to repre- sent the public interest had been a very respectable man, but one who had been employed exclusively on railway work and probably had never in his life built a bridge exceeding livO feet ppan. Mr. Borden put the cjuestion (to Mr. Graham: "Where was the ultimate responsibility to be found? The Que- bec bridge had been a gigantic under- taking.

Last night George Sinclair Munroe, the engineer- on the locomotive that went through the bridge, died at the hospital as a rtsult of his injuries. At first it was thought that he would pull through all right, and the news of his death comes as a s'ur- ise. That he should have escaped instantaneous death is the marvel, as jhe was in the locomotive when it (turned completely over in the fall. The deceased was one of the best I known engineers on the road and was highly esteemed by all. He is well known in this city, having come here with his parents twenty-four years ago. He was thirty-eight years or age, unmarried, and lived with his; parents at 321 Baroness Road, from which place the funeral will take place. He was one of a large family, several of whom are residents of this city. Mr. Munroe was a member of the Masonic lodges of Fernie and brook and the funeral, which will be held on Monday, Feb. 7 at 3 p.m., will be under the direction of the North Scar and Lethbridge Masonic lodges of this city.
