(Canadian Press Cable) LONDON.

July 26. Holders of Grand Trunk Pacific four per cent debentures, meeting wers given a full statement of the negotiations between their committee and the Canadian government in which a compassionate grant for the shareholders was sought. Sir Harry Samuel, presiding, said there was not the slightest reason to dlspair. He deplored the large dealing in the stock recently and declared that undue inflation or depression was equally detrimental to a final equitable settlement. Even more deplorable was the information, sometimes true and sometimes false which constantly came from some source at present absolutely undiscoverable by the committee.

He declared that their security was far more valuable today than it was a year ago. To Send Rejoinder. "Sir Harrison Smith told the meeting that he proposed to send a rejoinder to the Canadian government. The committee left Canada, he said, with the door still, open to further negotiations. Their mission had cleared up the situation in several respects and had left them faced with the realities and had indicated their line of action to rescue as much as possible of their property from the wreck.

G. F. Fordsyke. who accompanied the mission to Canada, expressed amazement at the Canadian government's answer to their appeal. He advised the stockholders to hold on.

They would want patience but the result was certain. One stockholder suggested approaching the British government with a view to the appointment of a royal commission. The chairman said he knew of no better way of getting the whole question shelved. He could not recommend such a course. A resolution was carried expressing full confidence in the committee and re-appointing them "to their best in the Interest of the stockholders." AT Premier Baldwin Speaks on Reparations, at Glasgow Conservative Club.

GLASGOW, July 26. Premier Baldwin, speaking before the Conservative Club on the reparations problem tonight, likened the effect of the Franco-Belgian occupation of the Ruhr on international trade to inserting the blade of a pen-knife Into the works of a watch. The people, he declared, were learning now at a gigantic price the elements of economics and foreign exchange. "It Is not so much that we have suffered through confusion in Cen tral Europe," he continued, "as that we are beginning to suffer. Until some form of financial stability is obtained in Germany there will be no reparations to anyone." The premier also expressed the opinion that, though it was looking far into the future, "in Russia we have one of the largest potential markets in the world." Trade With Russia.

"I believe that in the long run it would be to Russia we shall have to look." he declared, "with one or two other parts of the to provide that increased scope for trade which must be found to ab sorb the exports of Germany, represented by her reparations, if you can get them, which absorption alone will enable reparations to be paid witnout bringing us face to face with some of the keenest competition from which we shall ever have suffered." Incidentally, the Prime Minister remarked: "One of the tasks of the coming Imperial conference will be the moving of populations to suit the needs of the British Empire and finding employment for our growing populations." FRENCH REVENUE EXCEEDS ESTIMATE (Canadian Press Cable, via Reuters) PARIS, July 26. French revenue for June totalled 1,588,000,000 francs including indirect taxes amounting to 1,399,000,000 francs. The latter sum exceeded the budget estimate by 35,500,000 francs, and last year's indirect taxes by 174.750,000 francs. Customs receipts amounted to francs, which was francs below the estimates. Returns for the first half of 1923 exceeded the estimates by 1,600,000 francs, and last year's returns by 884,500,000 francs.

Associated Press Despatch. LONDON', July 27. That the former German Crown Prince Frederick "William Is believed to be planning his escape from Wieringen is asserted by the Antwerp- correspondent of the Daily Mail. There is curiosity, also some anxiety, throughout Belgium, the correspondent cays, owing to confidential information regarding the comings and goings of various agents between Germany and Wieringen, and it is an open cecret that the prince wants to return to Germany. He 'is believed to be in constant communication with the German Nationalists and their organizations throughout the Fatherland.

Nobody, the correspondent declares, would be surprised to hear that Frederick William had attempted to return to Germany, and if, he were determined to escape nothing but extremely vigilant watch would prevent him. There have been many arrivals also at Doom in the past month, including Prince Eitel former minister von BTelfferich, and it is reported that Hugo Stinnes, too, has been among the secret visitors. The correspondent asserts that the former German emperor also would difficulty in escaping, if he so wished. Twice lately he has motored to the coast of Scheveningen. The writer suggests, however, that activities concern the prince rather than the kaiser, whose popularity has "sunk to zero," while the prince is not unpopular with the ex-soldiers, and his wife is popular In Berlin.

conditions: first, on the endorsatlon of the action of the U.F.O. members of the legislature by a province-wide convention: second, on an appeal being made to all classes of the community.

260 1 Gloomy View of The London Times in View of Diplo matic Delays on Repara tions Stand. ECONOMIC STRAIN MAY ALTER THINGS But Symptoms of Internal Disorder in Germany Growing Day by Day. LONDON, July- 27. The recent tendency in many quarters here to take a sanguine view of the progress of negotiations in the reparations situation is disappearing under the influence of the latest reports from Paris, which- indicate that France nd Belgium virtually are immov- ible from the essential points of their policy in which they differ 'mm Great Britain, The situation is reviewed by The Times In an editorial today saying that the British government has attempted with sincerity and goodwill "to bring the whole problem into that region of economic calculation in which common sense may have some chance," but that the purpose behind this attempt "is being frittered away amid the shallow conventions of diplomatic delays." Germany's Disquiet. The prospect of negotiations dragging on until autumn is seen by The Times, which adds that in the meantime the symptoms in Germany are disquieting and it regards "the erazy movements" of the mark as of less consequence than indications' of growing disorder in Germany.

"The conspicuous fact about Germany," says The "is that she is sinking into sure chaos." The newspaper admits that it is quite conceivable that Germany's passive resistance may break down as a consequence of the intolerable economic strain, but asks, "Is there any guarantee that this moment may not coincide with the moment of general collapse?" What of tho Future? "Are the negotiations to drag on until this moment arrives?" con-i tinues the editorial. "Are slow dip lomatic exchanges simply to postpone any Dew form of action until Germany plunges Into complete disorder? If so, how will the Allies cope with the problem? Will there be any solution? Will not Europe then be in an entirely different condition from anything conceived in the of victory?" The Liberal press suggests that if the Franco-Belgian replies are along the lines forecast from Paris and Brussels, the time will have come for Great Britain to follow her own policy toward Germany and either send her own answer to Berlin or submit the whole question to the League of Nations. Tl Mr. J. E.

Askwith Comments on Developments Rare Possibilities. and Progress is being made on the new lookout at Rockcliffe Park op poslte Gatineau Point. The founda tions are now in and the building, which will be covered and 20 by JO, will he' finished in another month. Mr. John Asquiih, former police magistrate of Ottawa, through whose efforts, when an alderman of Rideau Ward, Rockcliffe Park was bought for the city, stated today that, in his opinion, the site of the new lookout would lend itself to much finer structure.

Mr. Askwith was born in a house which formerly stood In Reckcliffe Park, not far from the loojtout, some S3 years ago, and has. always been keenly inter ested in the work in the park and of the Ottawa Improvement Commission generally. He stated that the site opposite Gatineau Point should Be devoted to a tower, which would, give a wonderful view of Ot tawa and the surrounding country Bide. "I believe a stone' tower should be erected on this site," said Mr.

Askwith. "It would give spectators a view or Ottawa and or the sur rounding country for miles around. The tower should carry a gigantic beacon light which could be seen for mllea around. The view of the Gatineau, of the city of Ottawa and of the Ottawa river, both up river p6 down river, from this point is unique, but to get such a view the lookout should be from 100 to 150 feet in. height.

I believe it would make a unique advertisement for Ottawa." Mr. Askwith said he realized the Ottawa Improvement Commission might not have the money to embark on this work at once, but he thought the plan should be kept in mind, in order that it might be done later when finance permitted. PAYS HIGH TRIBUTE TO DR. E. Dominion Cerealist Dwells On the Great Value of Marquis Wheat.

A warm tribute to Dr. Charles1 E. Saunders, the discoverer of Marquis whsat, is paid by L. H. Newman in hit annual report as Dominion cerealist, in which position he succeeded Dr.

Saunders, who resigned i year ago on account of ill health. The report says that the value of Marquis wheat, not only to Cana dian agriculture but to that in the t'nited States, Is almost bevond com. butation. Its worth lias been so Heflnitely proved that it now nudi ties by far the greater part of the spring wneai growing lands of Can-ida.

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I., July 27. Owing to the large majorities in practically every poll, revised returns from the elections today do not change the general result of: 26 Conservatives and 4 Liberals, three in Prince County and one in Kings. The Guardian (Conservative) commenting on the results says: "The Bell government was defeated, not as its supporters claimed, be-1 cause it increased taxation, not be- cause it had improved the roads, not because it had improved our educational system. They were defeated because they had assured the public that there was no need of increasing the taxes and afterwards increased them; because they adopted a road policy which they had denounced as an 'infernal scheme' and because by that road they incurred a heavy provincial debt. In short, the Bell government was defeated because it deliberately and officially deceived the people." The Patriot (Liberal) says today: "The former leader of the Conservatives in 1920 stattd when speaking on the Liberal government's Tax Act, 'The government has done the right thing, but the result will be its Nemesis ia on their trail.

In this in stance he proved a true prophet. The government did do right and did Its duty faithfully and well and all but four of its supporters have been politically annihilated for tho time being. Every member of the cabinet including the premier has suffered defeat. History Repeats Itself. "In this notable election history has repeated itself with respect to the Liberal party.

In 1879, forty-four years ago, a Liberal government, headed by the present Sir Louis Davies, attempted to raise sufficient money to adequately carry on the public services, and did its full duty. It was crushed out of office. The Progressives fared badly yesterday, every man being badly defeated and their influence as a political factor for the time being has been considerably discounted. The result indicates that long term governments are a thing of the past here. In 1912 the Conservatives swept the country, 28 to in 1915 they were almost defeated, 17 to 13, and in 1919.

tho Liberals had the overwhelming majority of 24 to 6, a condition reversed yesterday. The new premier will have among his supporters two defeated federal candidates, f. A. MvNetll, former com-, misslo'ner of public works, and J. H.

Myers. The second district of Prince, which gave the Liberals their leader in 1912, when they had only two seats out of thirty, will likely again furnish a leader in the person of A. C. Saunders, K.C. This district has been Liberal practically since Confededation." TRAVEL WORN AUTO Car Bore Signs of Gun Battle When rrest Made Buffalo Street.
