The taxes vere announced �t the second reading of the bill. They von!d be levied on excess profits dur-ng the war, compared with �efore the war. Exemptions inc' ig.^iculture, fruit growing, dair, �nd allied businesses. Ottawa. July 27.-Hon. Frank Cochrane this afternoon introduced ;\ Mil to hrlng the I.C.U. under the Dominion railway board. Sir Sam Hughes iidUod when the report of Dr. Bruce In reply to Pr. Raptic's criticism of Ills tlrst report of medical conditions in the 0%'orscas forces would bo brought down in the house. He also asked if tli'> government was aware I'r. Baptie was concerned in the Mesopotamia fiasco and that ho hnd been practically removed from thp Drltish medical service. Sir Edward Kemp said it was the first he had heard of Dr. Baptle being connected with the .Mesopotamia matter. In regard to Dr. Baptle'* second report he said that Sir rtobert Borden hnd sometime ago stated in the house that It had been sent to Sir George Petley for him to decide whether or not it should be made public . He would draw the attention of the prime minister to the matter. In reply to questions by E. M. Jlac-Donald, the minister of militia said that ho had no authority over Sir George Perlcy. the overseas minister of militii. who reports directly to the prime minister. lion. Wm. I'ugsiey called the attention of the minister of militia to a resolution passed by the war voter nns' association of St. John protesting against the employment of officers and soldiers who hive not t-~- n over-sear and these positions should be given to returned men. Sir Edward Kemp said there was a good deal to be said in favor of the contentions of the veterans. There was. he said, a considerable number of surplus oflicers in Canada. He was having the matter investigated with the object or ascertaining who should be retained in the service and those who should be reverted to private life. The house then went into committee to consider the amendment to the Insurance act. Wcn't Pay Excess Premiums Ott lv/a, July 27.-The house of common* did a good day's work on the bill to Tevise fhe insurance act and the estimates of the department of public works. The report of the Tellier-MacLeod commission exonerating Hon. Robt, Rogers in respect of the findings of Mr. Justice Gait of Winnipeg, relative to the Manitoba Agricultural College inquiry, was tabled at ft o'clock by Hon. C. J. Doherty, minister of justice. At fi o'clock when the house re- i-vrjd with the purpose of consider-  'ho estimates of the public works, r.ojrers resumed his post as min-! ' of public works and piloted the .os through the house. The items voted wore largely for whnrves and other public works in tho maritime provinces. The discussion on the- Insurance bltl was almost entirely of a technicnl character. Sir Thomas White, minister of finances, announced that the department of finance had considered the proposal made by Mr. I.emleux to arrange for the payment of excess premiums on policies held by men sent to the front. Sir Thomas said that tho plan was impracticable because uinlor tho military service act some of the mon enrolled would be insured for large amounts, while others would carry smaller policies. It \v#s therefore Impossible to secure uniformity of treat-went for the men. He pointed out in connection with the l*tilted States insurance for soldiers that it is in lieu of pensions.

Mr. Rogers was invited to appear before the commissioners. Mr. Justice Gait arcl tl'.e Manitoba government were also invited. Mr. Rogers appeared, Mr. Justice Gait replied that he did not desire to be heard or represented, Premier Morris also replied that the Manitoba government did not desire to he represented. After briefly referring to the fact that Mr. Rogers was minister of public works in the Manitoba government when the agricultural college was started,' the commissioners t-fato that Sam Hooper, the provincial nrchitect, at first estimated the total cost of tha buildings, namely $3,875,500 pointing out that the explanation is that larger And better ,,,>i,i!..,, were erected than those which Mr. Hooper contemplated. They tiifl eaaence of S. C. Oxton, present deputy minister of public worKs, and James H. Howden,. former attorney-general. Dealing with Judge Gait's first report which accused Mr. Rogers of having raised the Carter contract by 7U0, this being alleged by Justice O.alt to hi connected with Carter's sub^e-Qiient contribution of $7,500 to the Conservative campaign funds of 1911, the commissioners refer to the evidence of Mr. Rogers who contended that the contract was increased on the recommendation of the provincial architect, as the contractors would lose money upon the power house contract at the price which they had submitted. The commissioners declare that tho findings of Mr. Justice Gait in this matter are not sustained by the evidence. The commissioners take the view that Mr. Rogers, in making certain statements as to details of conversations and the raising of the tenders was misled and confused by Hugh Phillips, K.C., counsel for the Manitoba government. Mr. Rogers, says the report, was not represented by counsel and he was always under cross-examination, some of which "was very unfair." Mr. Phillips misrepresented to the witness the contents or the effect of the documents in his possession. Tha commissioners say there were several mis-statements In the questions Mr. Phillips asked Mr. Rogers. The doubt as.tu the dates of conversations between Hooper and ,Mr. Rogers, before the latter telephoned to Carter in regard to increasing the tender, is dismissed, the commissioners finding that Mr. Rogers was right. They cito telegraphic accounts to show that Mr. Hogors was where he said he was. The commissioners state that in tho linding of Mr. Justice Gait there was "an irresistible inference that the increased tender allowed by Mr. Rogers and the unusual contribution to the campaign fund, amounting to $7,500 made by tho Carter company, were directly connected," is not supported by the evidence. It Ik pointed out in the roport that Justice Gait referred, in his roport, to lion. Mr. Rogers' name being upon the Carter contribution check of $2,-500, when, as a matter of fact his name did not appear upon the check at all. The commissioner!) state that only one extra was let by Mr. Rogers and that tho overcharges made bV tho Carter company, and the overpayments alleged by Mr. Justico Gait, must have taken place after Mr. Rogers left the Kovi.-rnment. The report finds that under none of the evidence has conspiracy boon made out, and that Judge Gait's findings as to localities and prices In connection with the land purchase" arc misleading, contain a number of Ji'iiccuraciaa,, and do not properly represent the facts." The w>mmlasipD�� state: "Noth-� ing is disclosed to, warrant a flnaing Ot couspiracy against Mr. Roger*." The following aplendld comments on the Chautauqua which comes hero for a week August 7 to 13, is from tho Keglna Pott: Tho outstanding feature about tha Reglnn Chftutaunwa is that it 1b a complete success in every way- financially, artistically and educationally. The required number of tickets woro sold several days ago and every expenao Is promptly paid. The attendnnco at tho big tent has been excellent. Hy a standing voto the audience unanimously declared its de�re for n permanent Chautauqua again next year, it is significant Hint the citizens at tho head of the most important educational and civic organizations of tho city hnvo backed the Chautauqua this year and have resubscribcrt their names tc bring it back again next year. Artistically, tho Chautauqua has brought to Rcgina this year a group ot talent such as has never before been seen in tho city In any brief space ot time. Beginning with the charming young women of the Trohlo Clef Club and P. Plat Jones, tho humorist, on Monday, the week has been one continuous series of tho highest class musical numbers, readings from the world's great literature, stories, philosophy, and science. Ruthven MacDonald was never heard in better voice. Morion Ual-lou Fisk's "Kweer Karacters I've Known" and beautiful colored Illustrations formed a charming part of the program Wednesday afternoon. On that evening the dramatic presentation of "Tho Terriblo Meek" nnd "Carson of tho North Woods," both productions filled with earnest thought as well as entertainment, were deeply appreciated, as a Reglna audience is capatole of doing. The Comus Players are to be congratulated on their subjects as well as on their fine art. Tho special musical flay with the Chautauqua Orchestra, OJIve McCormlck and Ada Ward was enjoyed perhaps by a more varied audience than the program of any other day. Tho special nddress of Miss Ward in the evening on t he Red Cross, bringing a generous contribution to that cause, was most heartily appreciated. The musical preludes, by the little ladles Misses Hill and Bryan, on Friday furnished the appropriate setting for tho dialect reading of Francis Labadie, the distinguished reader from New York, and the oriental orator-artist and pntriot-philospoher, Julius Cea-sar Nayphe, of Athens; and the music of the closing day by the Ha-wailans had all tho rythm, sentiment and fire we have learned to assoclato with the bewitching scenery and life ot their tropical island home.
