Mr. Birch would not make any statement as to what reduction in in- surance rates would be recommended but it is-safe to say that a good re- duction will be the outcome of the improvements he observed.

I have already built six airships, three of which have been successful. If there comes that high development in airships that I con- fidently expect, steam ships will be a thing of the past, we shall travel in the air."

LIBERALS WIN BY BIGGER MAJORITY London, May bye election today in the Stirling district of Scot land to replace the late pn mier Sir Henry, Campbell-Bannerman, resulted in the return of Arthur Ponsonby who was secretary tu Sir Henry by the greatly increased majority of This and the Scottish bye elections seems to indicate that Scotland is not influenced by the lead against Liberals, probably because the li censing and education bills do not Scotland. Lisbon, May Minister of Finance Martinez Carvalho on Wed nesday last challenged Alfonso Costa one of the Republican elders in the Chamber of Deputies to a duel bc- :ause Costa in a .speech declared Frar coist ministers had" abandoned 'every shred of political and private hojaor when they signed the decree, of Jan- uary 1st. Yesterday, he met Costa in ihc Job- by of the Chamber and the two men iuimediately exchanged blows. They pummelled -each other rigorously for several minutes and the spectacle was only the. intervention of :Botft men bore num- erous "-marks of the affray. Later, Senor Costa had another altercation in the lobby of the Chamber with Scnor Chagas, editor -of the Dinrio Illustratio. BAD BREAK IN THE CONSERVATIVE CAMP Col Sam.

NOT LIKELY TO TERMS Striking Street Car Men at Cleveland Not Favorable Toward the Pro, position Handed Out by Company camp of my friends" was the obituary written ever one of the campaign "scandals" of the Opposition today. The reckless and unpatriotic attack begun yesterday by his majesty's loy- al Opposition upon Canada's national army, a spectacle in itself unique and unparalleled in any other country assumed an amusing phase today when the attacking force was sudden- ly assailed with a raking fusilade from their own camp. The guns were hurriedly, reversed and instead of be- ing traind on the government were di- vt-ct'jd at one of the Opposition's friends to wit, Col. Sam Hughes, to apply the term used against the Ross rifie by its enemies, the bolt which the Opposition shot yesterday "blew back" and scattered in dismay and confusion those who shot it. The government members sat quietly enjoying the delightful spectacle of seeing the gallant Colonel from Vic- toria Halibudon Administer a scath- ing criticism of the unjustifiable and unpatriotic attempts of his own political friends to make political capaital regardless of facts or fair play. Col. Hughes arraignment of the chief critic of the Ross rifle, Col. ..Worthinfflon as a disappointed place hunter, venting, his anger in cooking up charges that might reflect on the militia department was delivered with characteristic blnntness .and vigor. The mistakes of the Conservative par- ty were told to them on the floor of the Commons in terms that did not mince matters. Caucus secrets were b'.urted out in open forum. __ The Conservatives, he declared, .knew he had done right in voting against the Manitoba school act, and for the Yukon Railway bill. The day- would come when they would have to admit that he was right in defend- ing the Ross rifle. Sir Charles .Tup- GOOD RACES AT BLAIRMORE ex minister of the interior, the ne- cessity of an all Canadian railway to the Yukon but when the bill was in- troduced the Hon. G. E. Foster had led such an agitation that Sir Charles ijad bec-n compelled 'o capitulate and vote against the very measure, he himself had suggested. In the last Conservative caucus Sir Charles had attended iiu .Ottawa, continued the outspoken Colonel, he had spoken of two mistakes the party had made, one being their failure to loyally '.sup- port tlte Liberal party in securing a Canadian rout, to the Yukon. To Mr. Fo'ster himself some hot shot was handed out. The proneness of the latter to suspect jrraff in every gov- ernment action was effectively r fer- reci to. George Fowler followed. In an ill-judged impact to affsvt the effect of Col. Hughes criticisms, the m.mber for Kings bitterly attacked his party colleague, practically accusing him of cowardice and being kicked out of South Africa. His remarks iisplayed neither good taste nor any sens.- of dignity and brought back some bitter retorts from Col. Hughes late. Today s experience was prob ably one of the most discomfiting of them all. Tobacco for Minors Mr. Aylesworlh today introduced and explained his bill, "To restrain the use of tobacco by young persons." The bill is designed to prevent the us.j of tobacco in any form by those under 16 years of age and it shall be an offense on the part of any one to Cleveland, Ohio, May by a night of absolute quiet in con- trast with the violence of the pre- oeding twenty-four hours, negotia- tions for peace in the street car trouble, traffic was. continued this morning. The declination of Glen K. Shurtleff to act as third arbitrator brought with it. the necessity of fur- ther discussion of a name to com- plete the proposed arbitration board. Only the matter of the disposition of; the men pending the arbitration pro- ceedings prevented a vote on the ar- bitration articles being taken last night. President Dupont refused to accept Avery's suggestion that the strikers, pending arbitration, take their old positions. The company formulated articles of submission of arbitration to go to the men today together with a counter- proposition that pending arbitration enough men to complete the service will be taken back, those, hired los- ing their seniority. It is the opinion of Vice President Behner and Presi- dent Farasy of the local union that the men will emphatically vote down the arbitration proposals of the cora- pany. The vote will be taken today. The men will vote "yes" or "no." upon a proposition to submit to full arbitration, their seniority rights and the binding force of the Cleveland Electric.Railway Co.'s labor agree- ment upon the new company.

D., librarian of the Toronto Public Library died at his home this fternoon of jaundice.- in which the word "cowardly" was flung out witii straight effect. Mr. the leaders sitting in on the Opposition front Fow'.er's reply J pvving its adherents the choice 'x-tween local option or absolute pro iibJtioa. The only quest! >n rais-d is the sincerity of the old lin parlie.- in their stand on the liquor tion. The prohibitionists polled ihan 10 per cent, of the state undei '.he new primary law at the last c ion. The r-itnation {.resented in Washinp- by this -iciinn of i'ne Tn-iiK-ermie in for prohibi- 'ion is a peculiar one. The Democrats net here several days after the close f the Republican state convention. vhich declared itself for William H. 'aft for the presidency, and local op- ion.
