Ottawa, June 17th - A conference is being held today between Captain King of Toronto, chief examiner of masters and mates for Ontario, Capt. Coles, of Collingwood, government examiner of that port, and officials of the department of marine and fisheries, in connection with international regulations governing navigation on the great lakes.
There are certain differences between the United States and Canadian rules and the refusals of masters of one country to be governed by regulations of another has frequently led to friction, and some times to collisions and mishaps. Important changes in connection with the regulations are expected as a result of the conference.
