It Is now planned to ask for a parliamentary inquiry into what is commonly termed the scandalous conditions of the telephone service. At the meeting of the cham- ber of commerce congress at New- castle this week. Herbert Shaw, de- puty mayor of Newcastle, said he had taken careful note of'the experience of 100 personal localities, G'> were in- terrupted and 38 cut off before com- pletion of the conversation. On one occasion did he get connection in less than two minutes. Experiences in London are even 'worse than in the outside towns. It has been the habit of the exchange operators to take their own time in answering the calls aud in making connections with the natural conse- quence that there have been many scoldings by the users of the tele- phones. To rid themsmelyes of this nuisance the operators now say when asked, to get a number that there is no such number and cut off the con- nection. At other times the operator merely pays no attention to the call. It. is not at all unusual for a sub- scriber after calling for a number to wait several minutes and to hear the operator walking about the room 'talk- ing to friends. After a while she will come back to the instrument and say: "What was that number you asked If a subscriber asks for the man- ager to make a complaint ho frequent- ly finds himself talking to the very person whose service is unsatisfact- ory. In fact there stems no way to get any redress unless by parliament- ary inquiry and a reform in the gov- ernment system.

E POLISH e Needs just a what authorization and In what, locali- ties have boundary waters between the United States and Canada been polluted, go as to be injurious to pub- lic health and unfit for domestic and other use; iu what way or manner, whether toy construction and opera- tion of suitable drainage canals of plants at convenient ports or other- wise, it is possible and advisable to remedy or prevent the pollution of these waters. The commission will hold its meet- ing at Ottawa October 1st and will then take up these questions and map out a program for the investigation, which will necessarily be a formidable one, relating as it does to the health; of from five to ten millions of people who live in the cities and towns on both sides of the water boundary, and receive their wa'ttr supply from the lakes and rivers that form the bound- ary or immediate tributaries to boundary waters, and who also utilize these waters for the disposal of sew- age.
