ROGERS PARTY TO (Continued frcw Front Paok) Montreal, May 25.-Summary justice was meted out in the police court this morning to the four men who tvere arrested last night for damaging property, assaulting the police and creating- a disturbance following the anti-conscription meetings. Recorder Semple lectured the men and warned them that such actions would he punished by the severest penalty the law allowed". He also intimated that the speakers "who incited men to commit such actions were not guiltless. The sentences pronounced on the men we%e as follows .Me'deric La Flamme, aged 54,  was fined $50 or three months in jail: Frank Blauchard, 37 years old, was fined $100 or six months; George Le-mare,-43 years old, to furnish-a bond of $500 .to keep the peace for one year and to pay costs or serve a month in |ail; Henry Xadeau, 19 years, who pleaded guilty to breaking the window of a street car -was fined ?40 and costs or; two months in jail. A Fraudulent Conspiracy Continuing, the report of the commissioner says: "I And that shortly after the site for the new agricultural college was acquired, a fraudulent conspiracy -was entered into 'by the lion. Robert Rogers and ~'- Kelly, senior merr-her of the )'n-r >>! Thomas Kelly and Sous, eontraL, "Tho objects of this conspiracy were, amongst other things: "(al To provide money for the Conservative campaign fund for use at both Dominion and provincial pipe (ions from Thomas Kelly and Sons and others who should be contractors for the various buildings comprising the new college. "(b) To provide Thomas KoIIy with funds out of the provincial treasury over and Rbove what he might legitimately earn. Fraudulent over-pay ments to the extent of SSO-'.TSO.CS were shown to hn�o been made by the former provincial government to Thomas Kelly-and Sons, but it appeared that in or about August, 191?. the the books and documents of the firm vere destroyed by Maurice Kelly, son of Thomas.Kelly, although not a member of'the firm, and so no evidence was available to ascertain what disposition had been made by Thomas Kelly or the Kelly firm of the said over-payments.", Commissioner Gait reports that "the means adopted by Messrs. Rogers and Kelly to carry out their said conspiracy," were: "Firstly, an atmosphere of laxity was to be created by the Hon. Robert Rogers in his department of public works and such instructions were to be given to Victor W. Horwood. the acting provincial architect, as would insure acquiescence by him and by his various government Inspectors and the officials of the department including tho architect's office, in the pro gress estimates of the contractors, without checking up or verifying the propriety of such estimates. "Secondly, contracts for 'extras' were to be lavishly granted to main contractors subject to no competition by others. "Thirdly, as soon as the various contractors, realired the favorable treatment they were receiving emis saries from the Conservative committee or other organizations were to wait upon them and collect correspondingly favorable contributions to the Conservative campaign fund." LITTLErlTiENT IN THE Elf The Food Prolflem E O. Ottawa, May 20.-Tho groundwork. increase in tho price of flour which of debate this session Is tho high cost of living.

And yet Mr. Cockshutt blew up the other night. It was the delicate tact of Mr. Cro-thers that touched off the fare. The minister of labor breathed the word "plows," when Mr. Cockshutt was talking about prices, and Mr. Cockshutt went up in tho air. He disclaimed having anything to do with the price of plows for the last twenty years, after which he proceeded to speak right out in meeting. He said that parliament should look after the workingman. that the. time for shillyshallying hnd gone by and that thero must bo a food dictator for Canada, as there was in other belligerent cotin-tries. He did not, hdwever, mention Mr. Fiavelle. Mr. Cockshutt declared that if $1.50 to S2.0O was a fair price for wheat in ordinary times, if $-.00 was a fair price for potatoes, or 35 or 40 cents a pound was a fair price sent price of wheat. Vnrthermbro Mr. Kyto stated that \\/ millers had enough cheap wheat on hand to provide flour for months to rome and that there was absolutely no excuse for the swollen prices they were asking for flour. Getting right down to cases, Mr. Kyte asked why.a government, which could tlx the price of newsprint for fear of the newspapers, could not regulate the price of flour for love of the people at large. Tho remedy he suggested was that the government commandeer all the wheat not now in They had Vorvillo of Malsonneuvo, tho Labor member, contributed a few illuminat-lag remarks on tho high cost of llv )nfc froth tho worklngman'a point of view.

He got two deposits last time, but will be satisfied with one in this election. The Conservative candidate, T.

In the Carmangay riding the opposition against Jas.
