Ottawa, June 12.-An order-in-coun-
cil embodying the.increase rates of
pay granted to postal employees was
tabled in the House of Commons early
today. The order was based on the
report of the Civil Service Commis-

this evening at 8:15. With an old
tavern of the Paris undeworld strik-
ing a bizarre note at the first cur-
tain, the story advances through two
acts laid in the court gardens, and
ends in a street scene with a gallows
edected in the foreground.
The play is historical; its principal
characters are Francois Villon, a
street favorite, and the superstitious
French king, Louis XI. A falling
star and an astrologer, together with
the recital of a new poem by Fran-
cois in the tavern, warn Louis of ev-
ents which may not be desirable. He
becomes interested in the - poor poet
and contrives to follow his actions and
finally to arrest him and test him to
his own satisfaction. In the course
of the play all favoratie interests
enters about Villon whose amours and
skill in duelling serve to win even
the o kin's heart.
Excellent settings, as fanciful and
as gorgeous as old Paris in the sun-
ny street or in the shadow of the
castle, will furnish a realistic back-
ground for knit A 'iand ladies, archers,
a street mob and soldiers. Costumes
that catch the spirit of the times have
been secured. Solo dancing before
the court promises added charm.
Sixty senior w'e~xmn will take part
in the production, which has been
under the direction of Prof. J. L. R.
Brumm. The scenery was done by
Davis of Detroit. Pamela Brown is
chairman of the play committee, and
