SITUATION IS QUIETER Budget Will Be the First Consideration When House Meets London, Feb. -tension of the political 'situation has beeu somewhat slackened1 as "after a careful of the pros and cons the politicians to- day were less inclined to take the La- bor and Nationalist menace at its face value than -they were last night. The demand for "guarantees" which the Laborites and Nationalists must have known that Premier Asquith can- not seek from King Edward until the prime minister is enabled to demon- strate by the actual voting In the House of Commons, that he has a solid majority of the House at his back, is described to-day as being in the nature of a bluff. Premier Asquith appears to have met this bluff with a reitera- tion of his determination to clear up the financial situation before launch- ing a campaign against the veto of the House of Lords and freely predicted that the extremists will decide at party meetings on Monday that they have more to gain by keeping the govern- ment in office than precipitatiJg an- other general election.

Hamilton, Feb. men are dead, three are seriously injured, and a score or more are painfully bruised by the result of a fire which broke out about 5.30 this afternoon in the big plant of the Gurney-Tilden Co., stove manufacturers, Hudson and Rebecca streets. Henry Bawden, 55 King St., and Albert Mc-Cully, 2S7 Catherine St., north, were suffocated to death, their bodies being found half an hour after the lire. It is supposed that an electrie light became crossed, causing a spark which ignited a quantity of chemicals in the laquer room, which is situated on the ground floor of the foundry. A burst of flame followed by a cloud of dense, suffocating smoke, followed. The fire spread on the ground floor, while the smoke ascended in billowy clouds to the three upper floors of the factory. Being aided in its ascent by the elevator shaft and a flight of stairs which offered it practically un- impeded progress. Bawden, along with six other men, was working in the rinding "room, which, without a mo- ment's warning, became filled with overpowering smoke. Some of the men made a rush to the windows, and Hobson jumped, landing safely in a life net held by the wrist was broken. Others reached safety by ladders hastily raised against the wall. Bawden tried to escape into another room, but was overcome by the smoke and got but a few feet outside.the door of the, grinding.room. McCuIley tried the same tactics and was also ov- ercome. When discovered later they were dead and an hour's work by Dr. Anderson failed to restore any sign of life.

Hon. William Pugsley to-night tabled in the house the report of the international water- ways commission dealing with the proposal to dam the outlet of Lake Erie with the idea of deepening 'the lake harbors and the Detroit and St. Glair channels. The commission ex- presses itself as opposed to the pro- posed damming of the lake for the reason that the results to be attained would not be of sufficient value to navigation to compensate for the low- ering of the level of the water in Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence river. "the report includes a run for the lasc forty years of the various levels of the lakes and shows that in the lowest stages of navigation on Lake Erie it would be possible to increase the level of Lake Erie by one foot "It does not says the re- port, "that nothing can be done to im- prove the level of the lakes. It is impossible to raise it by simply reduc- the size of the outlet but here again are vested rights. Somewhere in the Niagara River between Lake Erie and the falls a submerged dam may be placed that will gratify the naviga- tion above without hurting that Without attempeng to regulate Lake Erie the level of the lakes may be rais- ed sufficiently to compensate for the damages heretofore inflicted by the Chicago drainage canal.
