Conservatives and liberate Agreeable in Major gin's Investigation NEW DIVISION OF ADMIRALTY London, June Daily Ex- press announces that the admiralty has decided next year to organize new divisions of the fleet to be sta- tioned off North Scotland with a view to' guarding the northern entrance, thus bottling up the North Sea. Ottawa, June Commons special committee which investigated Major Hodgins charges of extrava- gance against the National .Transcon- tinental railway commi.sskm will bring in a unanimous report to Par- liament. Messrs. Barker and Leu nox, the Opposition members of the committee have decided to withdraw from their attitude of demanding a further investigation of the charges of over-classification and have wisely concluded that the quietest way out of the fiasco is the best. The evidence will therefore be reported to the house in the regular way. The House spent .a quiet afternoon in supply on Nova Scotia estimates, but incidentally there was a discus- sion on the use of Canadian cement in public works. Conservative whip Blain, F. D. Monk, and other Oppo- sition members take the ground that a preference should be given to the Canadian manufacturing company. Hon. Pugsley said the Canadian ce- ment is as good as any cement in the world. He added that in' the contracts of the public works-department it is provided that none but Canadian ce- ment shall be used. Mr. Blain urged that the department should "test the cement for any Canadian contractor or manufacturer. Mr. Pugsley 6b jected, however, that this would make a large increase in the expense of the labor.
