'It . was generally expected that yesterday's cabinet meeting would see a final settlement. There had been conferences with railway magnates. There is further consideration of the problem today and it is expected a solution of the chairmanship will be arrived at today. Hon. Frank Cochrane and D. B. Hanna are both mentioned for the chairmanship. No Decision Ottawa, Sept. 6.-Announcement of the composition of the Canadian Nor- thern directorate goes over until tomorrow and probably until Monday. Decision on the question, it was officially stated this afternoon has not yet been reached by the government. It is again under discussion by the cabinet council this afternoon. Arraugements now made, it ia understood -will probably be temporary. The idea is eventually to bring all the government roads under corporate management and any arrangements to that end will naturally be affected by the result of purchase arrangements with the G. T. Further question -which has arisen is the likelihood of continuing the existence ot the railway war board after the war. This will, however, depend on events.
