Ho- berts, noted student of theology, and the author of numerous ecclesiastical and historical volumes, departed on Monday's trala. for salt Lake City, Utah, in company with Apontle Rod- ger Clawflon and party, after attend- ing a most .successful conference at Cardston. Interviewed by your correspondent, in regard to Borne of the important, topics of the day, he displayed a keen intersst, especially as to the attitude of the United States with regard to the struggle- In Europe, stating em- phatically that public sentiment was almost entirely in favor of the allied cause, with the exception of a few middle states, wtoere the Germm ele- ment was a predominant factor. Ask- ed If the Republicans and Progressives would unite at the convention next month, he thought they undoubtedly' would and indications were that either Roosevelt or Hughes would lead the party. If Roosevelt should receive the nomination it would spell an easy victory for'.the bemocrats', as a num-' her of Republicans would refuse to o.terclse their suffrage. However, if Hughes would break his long silence and announce his candidacy, the chances were strong that he would be nominated, and the result would be a heated contest at the polls next No- vember, as ho would draw more sup- port from the Republican party, not having figured in any ot the factional disturbances in the ranks. In referring to the Mexican ques- tion, he remarked that It had been a rather perplexing. problem for the present administration, but the course that had been pursued would tend to gain the good will. ot the snaller American republics, and make Pan Americanism, more of an immediate possibility as they would realize that Uncle Sara did not care to extend his boundaries.

A PRINCE IN ACTION Prince Henry (first taking an active part with the Eton contingent during their field day. at The Etonians were; out all day and the Prince-bore the-hard work like a fully trained soldier; In reply to a "question from Sir Thomas Whits said that the board of inquiry; would have full powers to make a report on. the phy- sical and. of the Canadian 'railway and: to re- port on the, general, situation. They will give 'advice on the re-adjustment of the railways so as to get the best economic results. Their report will enable the government to arrive al a permanent' solution. He said thai the personnel of the committee htd not yet been considered. The Item for to carry on the Inquiry wasi-then passed, and a vote- for auditors was also passed without opposition. i Sir Thomas said the auditors would be men of high standing. At a late hour on the second read- ing of the government bill to take over the Quebec and Saguenay rail- way at a price -to be fixed by the ex- chequer court, there was consider- able criticism of the proposal. J. G. Turriff asserted that the construction of the line had been commenced pre. vlous to the election-, of 1911 by Sir .Hodolphe Forget, and that it had been stopped In 1912 after the elcc- tions were over, Other opposition members' declared .that the- govern- ment should not take over this line at a'time when a commission was being appointed ,to inquire into the general railway situation in Can- ada. Hoii. J. D. Reid defended the pro- posaU He said that the line would make a good branch Hue of the N.T. R. as it would serve a large popular tion on the north side of. the St. Law- rence now very much in need of rail- way taclUttea. The. cost would be fixed by the exchequer court, with due allowance lor depreciation, etc. The bill was given a second reading.
