OTTAWA MARCH ORIGIN MAY BE PROBED IN B.G, Counsel and Commissioners Plan Details of Inquiry-Procedure Not Known Plan for taking evidence at Vancouver and Calgary for the royal commission inquiring into the Dominion Day riot on Regina's market square were decided Saturday morning at a lengthy conference of counsel and commissioners, but were not divulged. Chief Justice Brown, chairman of the commission, will make a statement on the Vancouver and Calgary aspects of the inquiry early next week. Judge A. E. Doak, one of the commissioners, and Lucie n Tourlgny, commission counsel, will visit both cities and take evidence. Date of their departure has not been decided definitely. Riot Main Point The main matter of investigation before the commission is ths Dominion Day riot in Regina, which started on market square, where Detective Charles Millar of the city police force was killed, and spread through downtown streets as civilians and police battled through what were probably Regina's most hectic two hours. For three weeks previously, nearly 2,000 strikers from the relief camps of British Columbia, including many recruits who had joined after the original strike, had been quartered in the Stadium at the exhibition grounds while Royal Canadian Mounted Police, under orders from Ottawa, blockaded routes of transportation eastward towards Ottawa, the objective, of the strikers' trek. While specific matters about which the commission is sending one of its members to secure evidence will not be known until Chief Justice Brown makes his announcement next week, in general details will be sought on the conduct of the strikers In Vancouver, where they stayed for two months before starting the On-to-Ottawa trek; the circumstances of this phase of the trek story; the origins of the trek idea and the start; the part played by railways in helping or hindering the trek; and incidents at Calgary, where relief officials were blockaded by a large crowd in their office while negotiations for relief for the strikers were conducted. Riot Act Reading One incident at Vancouver which Judge Doak may be expected to seek evidence on is the reading of the Riot act by Mayor G. G. Mc-Geer to the strikers. As only Judge Doak and Mr. Tourigny are going to the coast arrangements for a shorthand record of the evidence, the serving of subpoenas, and ths secretarial work of the Inquiry there will be made with local authorities. Other commissioners, Chief Justice Brown and Mr. Justice Martin, will continue the Inquiry in Regina while Judge Doak is away.

Bride, of Glaslyn, Sask., was sentenced to two months on each charge, sentences to run concurrent, when he appeared In R.C.M.P. court at Battleford before Magistrate Mlghton.

Oldenburg, who expressed the opinion that the aldermen's eligibility should be tested. uiw fiannei sam: "how mat they are there, the best thing to do is to let them alone." One rateDaver said: "On of them is a Communist that's why they want him out Only a few are bringing this up. It's a shame to bring It up." Dr. Charles Dixon, former alder man, said: "I feel that while they mav be technically unseated, thev should be given the opportunity of sitting on council." 1936 Officers Election of officers for 1S38 nut Mr. Wlttal back In the presidency.

I say they both knew they had no right But they gave the impression to the voters they had the right; they tried to get protection from the s-ovem- ment; they tried to intimidate any citizen who might dare to challenge them.

The boys are In there now," said one member. "One's a rimmnniii and that's why they want to get aim out. Mr. Oldenburg denied this. The member continued: "Th eastend peoplo should be ashamed to ao mis. only a few are bringing it up and It's a shme to bring it up." Another member termed the motion "Just encouragement to someone to start the action." Dixon's Advice Dr. Dixon said: "The people elected them by substantial majorities." He said he felt that it would serve the city's interests better to let them sit on council.
