IN THEIR CAUCUS Ottawa, June 14.-The Conservatives wore in caucus this morning from 10 to 1 o'clock. When tho meeting broke up, Sir Robert Bordon said that railway matters and other questions were considered but that he had no statement to make. It is understood that the general situation arising out of the conscription bill and the proposal to Introduce an Income tax measure were considered. Necessity of action of some kind to deal with the railway situation was, it Is understood, thoroughly discussed. The interest pay-ments which the G.T.P. and C.N.R, companies may not be able to meet are soon falling due and the government will have to decide whether temporary measures are to be taken or the report of Drayton-Acworth report recommending nationalization of rail ways acted upon. It Is stated that the amount of temporary aid which tho railways would require to take them selves over the year Is not large.
