1 n '4 iiS ill TWO G.N. HEAD OFFICE L l;M THE CABINET Hon. Geo. P. Graham Re-peats That Govt, Has Not It Yet Made Its Final De-r cisionin Matter. QUESTIONS LIKELY INCOMMONS TODAY ;Annuncement of R. P. Cfiuoh Has Given Rise to uch Comment by Mem ers. here Is some doubt if the house 1 today hear a definite announce- fiient on the new headquarters of the Canadian Railways. While, ac J .fording to the statement handed ' fut by It. P. Cough, one of the directors, last niirht thp V.itlrtnnl Railway hoard has decided in favor f Montreal, their recommendation remains to he approved by the cabi net. Hon. George P. Graham, act ing minister of railways, reneated oday that the government had not yet reached a final decision. "The act provides," he said, "that the re commendation of the hoard in re ffard to headquarters must come bo fore the government. The question ht divisional points is entirely In ihe hands of the board." Mr. Gough's statement will, it is expected, be the subject of ques tioning; wnen tne house meets this afternoon. His announcement i pectins the new headquarters has jriven rise to much comment among members, especially as the boards recommendation has not yet receiv fcd the approval of the government. H MAfa iHK NOT S! RPIUSi:i. i nnndinm Press Dmiiatrh. TORONTO, Feb. 2. Mayor 51a-fcuire stated last night that, while lie was greatly disappointed ot the tlerision reached by the Canadian National directors, he was not surprised as some time prior to the risit of Sir Henry Thornton to Toronto be had been informed by a gentleman in close touch with railway affairs and the government, that he hadseen the site In -Montreal which had then been selected for the chief offices of the system, lie had met the same gentleman in Ottawa a few days ago, when he repeated the statement, said he. The mayor was amazed that Sir Henry Thornton, after the positive statements he had made in Toronto on the matter, should have overlooked the economic side of the question, v "However," said the mayor, "we hall have to put up with the decision and make the best of it. The railways belong to the people, and j we must pull together to make them k success." 1: SILVKR I.IMXG TO CLOVIX 'i : TORONTO, Feb. 2. Toronto people are already seeing a silver lining in the cloud that moves the headquarters of the Canadian National Railways to Montreal. It is being freely asserted today that the new arrangement placing the Quebec divisions. Including the old Grand Trunk and Intercolonial sections, in tho central division of tne C.N. It., With headquarters at Toronto, Jneans a tremendous increase in the railway business to be transacted In Toronto. It is declared by some that this will mean removal of sev-ral families from Montreal to Toronto. ::The question of the headquarters f the Canadian National Telegraph commercial section seems to be still undecided so far as official announcement is concerned. i': This system largely comprises the ld Great Northwestern Telegraph Company, whose headquarters were fn Toronto before it was takes over by the Canadian National. TIIK RATIONAL COVHSE, r; MONTREAL, Feb. 2. Commenting editorially on the decision of the Canadian National Railways' directorate to transfer the headquarters of the system from Toronto to Montreal, the Star this afternoon ays: r'"It has been evident for some fimc past that determined efforts were being made in certain quarters to bring pressure to bear on the frovernment In the hope that sectional prejudices and regional ad-Vantages might reflect them from the rational course which they have p-ow followed. i; "Sir Henry Thornton is too able . ; railway executive to be ca joled itf harried into choosing any center far from the metropolis of Canada, far from its chief port ot entry and far from the nerve center of the banking and business of the IKiin-inion, merely because a few politicians would like to have the operation of Canada's National Railroads just under their own noses so that from time to time they might tftrust a meddlesome hand into a business of immense financial possibilities." fcXl'IiA NATION Ol" IH.CIslo.V. TORONTO, Feb. 2. liiwussmg the decision of the Canadian National Railway, the. Toronto star sayB: "Against the decision that has fceen made we could say much, but it would largely be by way of repetition of the reasons advanced for tocatiiig the headquarters in this inty and province. There is ut least tills to be said in explanation of the decision arrived at: 5. "That professional and conventional railway opinion would almost inevitably be that the head oilieu ought to be at a port where wheel Had keel meet, and at the center here its chief opposition railway system is quartered. It is a sort of tradition that that is the way to carry on railroading, and Toronto. With the best arguments in the World, has been waging an uphill contentful all along opposed not only by political influence but by deep-rooted habits of thought on the part of railwaymen who fumy that the heart-railroader must from Ifts oitice hear both the rumble of liis trains and tho whistles of tho okiean boats."

Did ar.vone see tile bear this morning, for today. Candlemas. the dny upon which bruin sallies forth to look for his shadow, if he saw it he goes back to dreamland with un empty st-omstfh for at least six weeks more, for it is going to be fair and cold. If he didn't one may expect to have a reasonable mild spell, with hopes of an early spring. The weather this morning was fino and clear and while cold in the early hours, was decidedly milder by noon. If the bear didn't see his shadow, with the brilliant sun which was shining, it must have been blind. Candlemas is a feast of religious significance which dates-bad: some centuries, and used to be observed by processions, but today it is more quietly recognized. Just where and why it originated no one seems to know, although the feast has been the subject matter of poets tor hundreds of years. Why bearology should be believed before the scientific methods employed by me-terological observers, is unexplained but nevertheless it is a fact that Candlemas day and its legend regarding the bear and his shadow is firmly believed in. and as a matter of fact the legend has been borne out more often than not. Anyway, it is said, Kruin awakes today from his long winter's sleep, crawls out of his hidden burrow and looks around him. If he should see his shadow, ho yawns and retires to his den again to wait six weeks for milder weather. If his 3hadow is lacking bruin sets out on a foraging expedition and limbers up for the spring season, and if the legend is true, mild weather and an early spring would be due.

An important development in the international copyright situation affecting Canadian and British authors Is presented by a bill which has just been introduced in the house of congress. The bill was introduced by Representative Tichn6r, of Kansas, and is backed by the Authors' League of Now York. It was drafted after a" series of conferences between United States authors, publishers and labor leaders and is intended to permit the United States to enter the International Copyright Union. This it proposes to do by modifying the so-called manufacturing: clauses which have hitherto prevented the United States from being allowed to join the International Union at Berne. If the bill is passed, the manufacturing clauses will thereafter apply only to United States authors or authors of other nationalities domiciled in the United States, and will become a purely domestic qualification for United States copyright, thus relieving British and United States authors of vexatious formalities including the irritating necessity of duplicate and simultaneous publication in order to secure copyright in the United Sta'.V.

Oiricials of the Canadian Authoi Association who have had the oppoi tunity of examining the bill are c the opinion that it marks a genuin step forward, although they considt that some of the provisions alTectin importation may have to be module to conform with the requirements c the international -copyright author: ties at Berne. .
