OTFIZEN THE COMMONS RESUMES WORK TOMORROW WHEN INTERIM SUPPLY WILL BE SOUGHT; OPPOSITION MAY DISCUSS HOUSE RULES When the commons resumes tomorrow afternoon the first matter likely to be discussed 14 one in relation to the present rules of the house and 'the rights ot the speaker thereunder. Since tho memorable scene of a week ago .Saturday might, .when. .Speaker Sproule took the chair in the midst ot a committee sitting and "named" Dr. Clark, the Liberals have been grouch ing. The complaint does not have reference to the speaker taking the chair or the subsequent disorder, but to his right at that time to direct the committee chairman' to put The question. The library has been ransacked (or authorities. Dr. Sproule, however, is a parliamentarian of forty years' experience and it highly improbable that any action he nas taken is with-vlew of the probability of further out rule or precedent to justify it. In -view of the probability of further storms the discussion should prove illuminative. INTERIM SUPPLY. After this matter is disposed ot, it is likely that some supply will be asked tor prior to the resumption of the ma9al bill discussion. It was learned in high circles today, however, that the order of business has not been finally determined as yet. The fiscal year ends ft week from today, and It will be necessary to secure a vote of a fraction of each item, re- serving to a later date the discussion on details. - The attitude of the opposition in respect to interim supply will ha watched with much interest as indicating the party's course. In view of the precedents it is believed that it will be granted, especially as any blocking of fractional proportions ol the estimates would necessarily entail hardship and inconvenience as well as the suspension of government works. It may be anticipated that on motion to go into supply many extraneous matters will be introduced under the rule that permits of amend- PRAISE GIVEN TO In Midst of Heavy Trouble They Handled the Fires .; Well. (Special To The Evening North Bay, Ont, Mar. 24.- Firemen Hertu and Sylvester, who were injured at Sturgeon Falls by the collapse of a fire bell tower, will both recover. A number were injured at Sturgeon Fall3, one man receiving painful Injuries when the roof of the Royal Bank block blew off. The fire brigade at that town deserve great credit for prompt and efficient handling of various tires which broke out. Over one hundred chimneys were blown down at Sturgeon Falls and about twenty barns demolished in the surrounding districts. Four. houses were blown down in Indian village, on the North Bay reserve, but no one was injured. Liveryman Daoust of Sturgeon Falls was coming across the lake with a team of horses and will never forget the storm. The full sweep of win! caught him and horses and with difficulty could they keep their feet. The horses became frightened and unmanageable. The robes and everything on the sleigh were stripped and sent skirling before the wind. He arrived at Sturgeon Falls after eight o'clock with his team and only one bob. The T. & N. O. Ry. passenger trains were stalled by the storm almost within sight of Cochrane, there being . heavy snow fall in that section in addition to the wind. Passengers had an uncomfortable wait of many hours before traffic was resumed. C. P. R. officials had a hard time moving passenger trains on the Lake Superior section during the Friday storm. Telegraph wires were down and successful operation depended largely upon faith and good judgment. Several immigrant trains were held tip at various points and the problem of feeding was a serious one. Fortunately the blockade was raised before it became too serious. . ,..mi.w irnnnnr."i" - -- -- --- Vacancy for London. !' the president has picked - Tor London, it is unacisiuuu. however, that .before the end of the week he will make a choice b Viat rtutt find nnme other important European embassies. Wants Liquor License. Notwithstanding tho fact that the Hull temperance advocates will .like-, ly attempt to secure a reduction ot the existing number cf liquor licenses in the city, an application nas been put in to the city council for au additional store license, Mr. iM. Dag-enals, Cuthbert street, being the applicant. It is not considered that the city will grant any new liquor licenses this year. Mnrrr. Every Day Have you stopped to think of your daily newspaper as the World's Mirror? Every time you look Into your newspaper you see reflected the doings and happenings of the earth. Knt loner asro you read a word picture of the Antarctic regions, of encountered by a band of brave and noble explorers. Recently you have had a glimpse into ine orient, hrnuiht about by the Balkan war. Tou know a great deal about Mexico and her civil troubles. All !,, Mncra a r. 'of errant In. K., (h. thlnar thnt ti . In gin with your cost of living Is most Important One of these things Is the advertising which appea's In IHK CITIZEN every day. By reading tmtlt vmi will know when to huv and what to buy at the lowest prices.' When you look Into the World's Mirror, don't overlook the opportunities to economize. ments to the motion to go into committee for that purpose. THE NAVAL ISSUE. The general situation in regard to the naval bill is unchanged. The line of cleavage is pretty clearly deiined. The prime minister has announced that notice will be given of amendments to the rules calculated to limit to reasonable bounds the discussion. It is not intended to proceed to put the amendments into etfect forthwith. If the opposition indicates its willingness to pass the bill there will be no closure. If its position, though, is a maintenance of its past attitude, closure will be not only necessary but wholly justifiable. Sir Wilfrid Laur-ier's formal statement, while not saying so directly, conveys the intimation that the fight will be kept up. WHAT DO CONSTITUENTS SAT? A great deal will depend, however, upon the reports that are brought back from the country. The blockade ot the past few weeks has fooussed public attention on Ottawa and doubtless during the Easter recess the constituents of opposition members are making their views and opinions felt. If the Liberals feel they have a fighting chance they will probably adhere to their stand and should they do so more stormy scenes may be looked for as it would require a fortnight to amend the rules. When that is done, however, thj way will have been paved for the passage of the maval bill, supply and everything else. With those subjects disposed of only the Bank Act remains, and though contentious it will not be considers on party lines. THE BANKING COMMITTEE. The banking and commerce committee has been summoned for three days this week to make progress with the Bank Act. This is an inaiiaiion that there will not be, for th immediate future, any more continuous sittings. In fact it is much to be doubted if they are reverted to at all. Enaulrv in cabinet circles, however. discredits the story that the probable abandonment of day and night sit tings is a quid pro quo lor an opposition undertaking to facilitate supply. , . THE RURAL SCHOOL FAIRSJO CONTINUE Provincial Department of Agriculture is Convinced of Success of the Idea. Mr. C. F. Bailey, assistant deputy; minister of agriculture for Ontario, was to the city today. Speaking with a representative of The Citizen regarding the rural school fair scheme, which system was inaugurated last year and which proved auch a success, be said it would , be continued this year. The work is under the supervision of the thirty-two district representatives of the department and is directed by Mr. Bailey. About twenty-five of these schooi fairs were held last year throughout the province and in some places the attendance and the exhibits in some of the departments were better than those ot the regular fall fairs at the same places. The work of growing plots of grain or vegetables, or raising poultry, is all done by the children under instructions from the district representatives and the products are entered in competition. As the scheme expands a big central fair will be held and the children who win at the county fairs will be qualified to compete at a proposed big provincial fair to be held at some central point, possibly Toronto or Guelph. All the schools in any county where the work is taken up compete at a fair held at a point centrally located In the county. The object of these fairs is to teach agriculture to the children on the principle of learning to do by doing, and it is one of the best features ever introduced by the department. AT TEMPLE BUILDING Ontario Liberals Form Federation of Educational Clubs. Toronto, Mar. 24. Representatives of 31 Liberal clubs in Ontario met at the Temple building today and formed a provincial federation of Liberal clubs. J. R. Marshall of Hamilton was chairman of the organization meeting, which was addressed by Hon. Macken-: zie King and others. Tonight the vls-: iting representatives will be tendered a I banquet at the Ontario Club, when N. IW. Rowell will be toastmaster. The i new organization, it is stated, does not I' propose to interfere with existing ward organization. Its aim Is educational. For Universal Peace. Brest, France, Mar. 24. A resolution calling on France and Germany to agree to proportional disarmament was adopted today by the French national congress ot United Socialists sitting here. The resolution declared that the present rivalry of arms In the naime of peace was provocative of war which could be prevented by a treaty to reduce the armies of the powers simultaneously.

He joined the city engineer's department in 1908 and for the last three years has been roadway en gineer. He has been acting engineer since Dec. 20, and has given great satisfaction. WIND WHS STRONG ; Did Much Damage Along Up per Ottawa Reaches. That Friday's big storm was general in its scope is evidenced by the stories told iby travelers from north of the eity who re.l rhed here today. According to Mr. Jack, of the fim of Shannon and Fraser, of Kip-pewa. Que., much, damage was done in that district to standing timber. much of which was blown flat by the immense force ot the wind. iMr. Fraser this morning told of the scenes of desolation which fol lowed the path of the storm along some cf t'he river banks. There trees were piled on top of each ot'r In indiscriminate confusion where they had fallen or had been uprooted by the near hurricane. "I saw one funny sight," said Mr. Fraser. "That was out on a iblg lake across whteh a man was driving a weigh loaded with bags of supplies. When the wind started its force was so great as to 'blow the (bags off the load and along the ice. The driver got off his sleigh and went after them and then found he could not get back to the sleigh! According to what can be learned, however, there was fortunately little loss of life as a result of the storm though many houses were unrooted in short order and damage done gen eraily. At the Cathedral. Easter, the queen of festivals, was most beautifully observed at Christ Church Cathedral. The church was crowded at all services from early morning until even-song, there being celebrations of holy communion at 7, 8, 10 and 11 o'clock, at which latter service the Archbishop of Ottawa was the celebrant, while the rector, Rev. Canon Kittson preached the sermon. The altar and sanctuary were most effectively arranged by loving hands with tho purest of white flowers, through which the altar lights gleam ed, making a most inspiring sight. Nor were the departed forgotten, for on quite a number of the beautiful memorial windows were placed East or offerings of flowers and crosses by relatives and friends. A very larga offortory was received at all the ser vices, in behalf of chuch funds. The cathedral choir of men and boys rendered the music in their usual good form under the direction of Mr. Arthur Dorey, the organist and j(rholr master. Surpliced Choir. J The choir of the Glelbe Presbyterian church has been provided with surplices or gowns and will wear them for the first time at the ser vices next Sunday. This will Hie the first occasion that Rev. Mr. Thompson wiM occupy the pulpit in that tehurch as pastor. His induction takes place on Thursday night. It Is but a short time since surplices or gowns were first introduced in the Protestant churches in Ottawa, ex clusive of the Anglican churches, and the large number of denominations that have since adopted them em phasizes how popular these gowns are. , . Horse Show Meeting. A meeting of the Ottawa Horse Show Association will be held tomorrow evening at 8 o'clock in the city hall to organize some of the pre liminary activities incidental to this year's horse show. The disposal of the boxes for the show and other busi ness will be discussed. The Queen's Prize. (Canadian Associated Press Cable.! London, March 24.

MAKES WAR ON PEST Now is the time to begin war against the tent caterpillars. If a concerted effort is not made wHhin the next few weeks to. destroy their eggs it is feared that the Ottawa and Gatineau districts will be visited this summer by a worse plague of these destructive Insects than the one which did so much damage to trees last summer. The whole region may be devastated. Mr. John A. Macoun, of the geological survey, says that with a little time and at small expense the eggs of the insects can be destroyed. WHAT O.'E. R. IS DOING. The Ottawa Electric Railway has had a man busy for the past month removing by hand the eggs of the tent caterpillars from the trees in Britannia Park. These eggs are cemented on the twigs of the trees in encircling masses of about half an inch In length, containing from 150 to 200 eggs each, and are in many cases so close together that the masses overlap one another. A bushel of these eggs represents millions of potentially destructive Insects. MR. MACOUN'S SUGGESTION. Mr. Macoun suggests that the civic authorities, citizens themselves and private corporations should follow the example set by the Ottawa Electric Railway Company. He says the boy scouts could help in the work, the only trouble being that in both the case of the scouts and citizens the necessary ladders are not available. BURN THE EGGS. . Now that the weather has become warmer the eggs may be removed very easily, even 'by the bare hand. They should, of course, be burnt after removal from the tree. AVhat should be done later on when the caterpil IT PLACE" OF NAME FOR AREA OF SAPPERS' Connaught Place will hereafter be the proper and official designation' of the area fronting the post office, between the Grand Trunk terminal and the Chateau Laurier, made by bridging in between the Sappers and Dufferin bridges. .

K.C.. of Van couver, has been chosen by the Brit- lsn Columbia government to represent the province upon the federal com mission to investigate the financial relations between the province and the Dominion and determine uuon a read justment of the fiscal arrangements ot tne two governments. . Sir Richard McBride has been informed that the Dominion government representative on the commission will be Mr. Z. A. Lash, K.C., a prominent member of the Ontario bar and an eminent constitutional lawyer. The order-ln-council providing for the commission calls for the selection ot a third member by the representatives chosen, but provides that in the event of their being unable to agree, the third member is to be selected by the eecrtary ot slat for the colonies. The third member probably will be chairman of the commission. Formal organization of the commis sion is expected to occur in Victoria, and it is believed the major portions of the researches will be conducted within the province, although sessions will be held at Ottawa, and it is possibly the commission may find it nec essary to spend a short time in London In connection with its duties. LACKED HOME MICE Or Young Wife in Edmonton Might Have Escaped Death. Edmonton, Alb., Mar. 24. In at tempting to light the kitchen fire with the aid of gasoline, the young wife of City Health Inspector Anderson re ceived burns from which she died Saturday. No one else was In the house at the time but the husband found a can of gasoline standing nearby which Mrs. Anderson had evidently used. She was frightfully burned, the flames completely removing her hair as well as half the skin from her body. t ll "IVTJJIZ ltr!'cominS'frcnoTneemedo "know was seen Dy ner ratner, inspector Graham, also of the city health de partment, who subdued the flames and summoned medical aid, but de spite the physician's efforts she soon succumbed.

DANGER NOT EXAGGERATED. Reference to the menace to vegetation in the city and surrounding country cannot be exaggerated, continues Mr. Macoun. Usually relief comes from an ichneuman fly which lays its eggs in the cluster of Clisiocampa eggs and the larva of the ichneuman destroys the other eggs. Last fall, however, there were comparatively few ichneuman flys and the result Is that nothing but very cold weather when the young caterpillars come out will save the trees. THET CAN STAND THE FROST. The caterpillars themselves will stand several degrees of frost, but If the young leaves are destroyed by frost the caterpillars will have no food and many will starve to, death. There are two species of Clisiocampa, C. ameri-cana, the appie tree tent caterpillar, and C. distrla, the forest tent caterpillar. The former has spread to forest trees also and is the commoner species in the city. Shortly after hatching the apple-tree caterpillars make for themselves a net or tent to which they retreat in the day time. The forest tent caterpillars on the other hand do not make a tent of this kind but congregate in masses during the day time. MAY BE A DEVASTATION. Mr. A. A. Taverner, also connected with the natural history branch of the geological survey, maintains that too much praise cannot be given to the Ottawa Electric Railway Company for the work It has done in Britannia Park. He says from all aDDearances . it looks as if Rockcliffe, the Gatineau and other neighboring beauty spots will be worse infested with caterpillars this coming summer than last It will be recalled that so great was the plague of caterpillars last summer that Mains were stalled by the presence of masses of them on the rails in the Gatineau district E BY cfl this morning and, as the name implies, it is in honor of Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Connaught.- The area area has been popularly described as The Plaza, but this did not exactly appeal to the government. As it owns the property it has exercised its right of applying a name. In the Citizen's straw ballot it will be recalled that while The Plaza won out Connaught Place was one of the names figuring very prominently In the voting. IS MAKING KIT The Ottawa Pictorial Show at New York Exhibit. The Ottawa exhibit at the Travel and Vacation Show now being held in New lork is attracting a great deal of attention. Alderman McNeill has Just returned from that city and states that Mr. Baker is meeting with a great deal of success in his work in connection with this show. Some of the foremost people who visited the show have expressed their idea of the city of Ottawa exhibit. The Pictorial News Company says: ''It is a beautiful display. We take our hats off to you." A. L. Pach, 35 Broadway, says: "The Ottawa pic torial display Is the finest thing of rne kind I ever saw." underwood and Underwood, the greatest photo concern in the world, say dt Is the best they ever saw and will take a photo of the exhibit. Mr RalrAP ha. nvw ,a alDiiatniun I of many leading New York concerns. favorable comments on the Ottawa exhibit. i RELIGIOUS RIOT Protestant Missionary Was Roughly Handled by Italians. Toronto, March 24. Following a religious riot In "The Ward" yesterday afternoon, in which revolvers, knives, razors and bricks were flourished, three men were arrested, two of them seriously wounded. Mr. A. Cantonl, a Protestant missionary, who had formerly been a Roman Catholic, was delivering an address. The small audience . with which he started grew rapidly into a mob of several hundred, many of them Italians. The Italians deeply resented the address of Cantonl and expressed their displeasure first in words and then with menacing gestures. Bricks and stones then began to fly and soon there was a aeneral mix-up, razors, knives and revolvers The missionary disappeared down Elm street, and so far as could be learned was uninjured. Police constables who were on that beat rushed to the Bcene when the trouble was at Its height They quickly got Into the thick of the fight and arrested the three men. - Miller May Be Released. It Is understood that efforts will be renewed this week to secure the release of R. C. Miller, the state prisoner. He is showing signs of ill health from the detention, while his wife is suffering from tuberculosis. There is also a feeling among many that he has been punished sufficiently. Sydney Port Open.

The- leading members of the society known as the ' Chinese Free Masons are endsavoring to have King Tung Soon, better known as Charlie King, sent back to China, and are taking the matter up with the Dominion government. It is claimed that Charlie has been the desperado in the Chinese colonies. It is said that when he was away all was peace. When he was in jail the local celestials, as well as those in Montreal, were all friendly. But once free, thev claim, Charlie hoists the war standard, and there is trouble in Chinatown. There was a great deal of trouble in Ottawa some years ago, and Hum Quod of this city, the M. P. for this part of Canada in the Chinese parliament, and other leading Chinamen in the city believed that the factional troubles were due to King. A- trap was laid by the police for Charlie. He got wise, however, and left tne city. Later he was arrested in Smith's Falls and sent to Jail for a month on the charge of blackmail. When he got out he went to Montreal, and soon the factional fights started again, resulting in a tong war. ending up in a shooting affray in a Montreal gam Dimg house. It will be remembered that a death contract was found in the pocket of one of the Chinamen arrested, and Hum Quon, although not present at the right, was accused of forging the name on this contract and slipping it into the prisoner's pocket. This brought the Chinese member or parliament be fore the courts, where he proved his innocence. The trial of the shooting affray was continued, and Charlie King and two others have been found- guilty ot shooting with intent to kill, and will be sentenced on Wednesday in Mont real. ' The Chinese Free Masons now want to aend hlra to China, and thus avoid any future trouble, rather than have him go to Jail, and it is understood they are ready to pay the costs. The factional fight was between the Chi nese Free Masons, which of course has no connection whatever with the regular Masonic order, and the Chi nese Empire Reform Association, of which Hum Quon is one of the leaders. It is understood that the Chinese consul is endeavoring to create har mony between these two branches. Nearly ail the Chinese organizations co-operate in the large cities, where there are many, and the effort is be ing made to so change the Free Ma sons that they will also work in harmony with the other associations. Mr. George F. Henderson, K.C., wtio rep resents Hum Quon, is conducting the case for the Chinese Reform Association. Put Laborites in Chains. Manchester, Eng., Mar. 24. The suffragists today bolted and chained the doors of the hall where the an-Boat conventi oir of the Labor party is proceeding, after the delegates had taken their Seats. The prac tical joke was not discovered until the hungry delegates attempted to go out to lunch, when they found themselves prisoners. The stout chains had to be filed through be fore they could leave the hall, Regretted in Collingwood. Prior to 'his departure from Cohiing-wood to Ottawa, Rev. T. J. and Mrs. Mrs. Thompson were tendered a farewell social by the congregation of the First Presbyterian church of which he was ipastor for the last two and a half years. The ohalr was occupied by R. C. MbDermid, of Sbayner, and short addresses were delivered iby Rev. W. K. Hager, of the Maiple Street Methodist church, and Rev. R, MacNaimara, of Al Saints', and by Messrs M. P. Byrnes, president of the Iboard of trade, W, A. Hogg, P. M., and tMayor Robert GMpin. At the conclusion of the program Ex-Mayor H. A. Currle read an address and Mr. A. Copeland presented Mr. Thompson with a purse of gold. Mr. Thompson's reply was eloquent and graceful and further impressed his hearer with the fact that they were losing a pastor of splendid capacity. The Collingwood Messenger commenting on the departure of Rev. T. J. Thompson, says: "Although here but a eh'rt time two years erd a half he succeeded in winning the coniideiioe of the public. Ha demonstrated- his u-bl ity as a leader among men an! blessed with a rugged constitution, a determination to win and unbounding energy proved a force In the conrmuEity." The inductioi of Rev. T. J. Thompson as pastor will take place in the Glebe Presbyterian church Thursday evening. More Suffragist Raids. London, March 24. Suffragists marauded Buckingham, a southeastern suburb of London, before dawn today, setting fire to a house under construction. The women were dis turbed during their "work of destruc tion 'by a passing policeman. They fled and all trace of them was lost. The flame were extinguished before great damage had been done. The championship golf links at Sandwich, Kent, were the scene of another raid by militant suffragists, who damaged the greens considerably. To Give Organ Recital.

ONTARIO VEGETABLE GROWERS Will BUY EUROPEAN SEED ON GO-OPERATIVE PLAN; OTTAWA IAN APPOINTED TO DO BUYING One thousand members of the Ontario Vegetable Growers' Association have decided to save about $50,000 a year (by purchasing seeds, fruit ibas-kets and bushel iboxea on the co-operative plan. They virtually declared war upon Canadian seed merchants when through their executive on Saturday they appointed Mr. W. J. Kerr, of Woodroffe, who is secretary of the Ottawa branch of the association, purchasing agent for the entire membership of the association, and voted LOCAL COMMITTEE Is Formed to Direct the Affairs of the Girl Guides. One more big atep has been taken in the Girl Guide movement in the city and that is the formation of what will be known as the local committee. At a recent meeting of a rather impromptu nature, at which the elected representatives of the various com panies in the city were present, it was decided to hold a meeting in the y. W. C. A. on Thursday evening next for the purpose of electing officers. The following ladies will comprise the committee: Representing the First Congregational Church company, Mrs, Clarence W. Phalen amd Mrs. W. H. MacEwen; St Luke's company, Mrs. W. A. Read and Mrs. (Dr.) J. B. Hollingsworth; Y. W. C. A. company. Miss Mary McKay Scott and Miss Charlotte Sutcliffe; Hintonburgh company, Mrs. Edward M. Zavits and Mrs. W. P. Anderson. The management and administration of the Girl Guide movement in the city will be entirely in the hands of this committee, and the different companies will be affiliated to. the local committee, and will agree to conform generally to the principles laid down in the Girl Guide handbook. The growth of the movement in this city has made It quite necessary to have4 a lpcal committee of ladies at the head of the movement The captains at the head of each company have a good deal to do, and they will hereafter leave the larger part of the business for the good of the movement entirely in the hands of this local committee which will probably meet about once a week. The First Congregational is the latest company in the city to be formed, and this now makes five companies in all. TO INSPECT TEETH : Public School Pupils to be Looked Over by Dentists. . With a view to demonstrating the extent to which backwardness in their studies and poor health are due to ' dental carles, or !bad teeth. tt examination of the teeth ot publio school children will be commenced within the next few weeks (by members of the Ottawa Dental Asso ciation. iPermission has. It is understood-. been secured from Inspector J. H. Putman, and a start will .be made with the ipupils of the Elgin street public school.

This has been done in Toronto and some of the' results were striking. It was found, for instance, that an av erage of lo per cent of ordinary school children not especially selectedhad bad teeth.

The Ottawa Dental Association expects, as a re sult of the data it secures, to furnish practical proof of this. LANDS OF 1KDIAKS Will be Subject of Commission to Sit Shortly. (Mr. John P. Shaw, M. L.
