Final action in-the house is lookefl for early next week and leaders expressed coiifidence that the difficulties in ,the seirnte and house drafts will be quickly adjusted in conference. With the exception of an eleventh hour amendment, adopted at the suggestion of Senator Cummins ot Iowa and providing, government .control-tor;| many short line". railroad�, the bill was passed-by-the senate, substantially as it. came from the senate inter; state cammeree committee. . Provis-' ions fixing tbe compensatioa for the railroads on the three-year basis, providing the 1500,000,000 revolving fund, authorising the president to initiate rales subject to appeal to the interstate commerce commission and lim-. iting goverriment control to 18 months after the war were retained by the senate.- FORWARD THEIR NAIMES Ottawa. Feb. 22.-In connection with the appointment ot a court ot inquiry to investigate complaints with regard to the transportation ot Canadian soldiers from England to Canada, the militia department announces'that all of-': fleers and other ranks who desire to gire gvideivcf^yith respect: to conditions on the'transport on which they returned to Canada should forward their names to the officer commanding the district in which they now reside in order that they may be notified to attend before the court. .As the .first .sitting of, the court la to be held in Ottawa, all persons residing here or in this vicinity should send their names direct to the president of the court; Lieut. Col.'H. r.'Iiulme, militia headquarters. her absolute fearlessness, and the extremely abstemious habits which she inherited from a very remarkable father.'- (the. tir�t Earl of Lovelace) made her singularly well fitted for' the adventurous journeys which^she /undertook^ In the Beventles' and eighties of tbe last century: She rode (the only woman in the cavalcade) with her husUand through tlfe wildest, parts of Meaopo-taraian and Arabian- deserts, penetrating to ^jealously guarded fastnesjiei and often in no slight peril. She crossed the Tigris, Euphrates, and Korkha rivers," eltheV dh jp,' "goatsltin raft or clinging to^a.swimming.liorse. Knowing the forinidabre nature of these rivers; she foretold the military-difficulties in thosei regions. To the end of her lite the romanc� and delight' of those wild journeys were never far from Ijer memory. . Her. last years were mainly lived In Btypt, whence since 1916 she had been unable to return at all.. She spent her time dispensing kindness to all about her,* and" espieclally to the soldiers, woi^ided and;^:unwoiin4ed, who now 8urroan4e(>..>he'lt, It was ^within a few .m'e.(?liR|of;�Jr SOth birtlfday that: she slntultanwoiialy'^finished* a book (her history of the Arabian Ilors'e). which it is believed is likely to become u classic, and inherited the anclt^nt Barony that had descendod to ber through her grand^nother, Laily jBy ron.
