A. W. Neill In
Vigorous Talk
Motion    to    Adjourn    Debate*
Agreed to by House
The many friends in the district of
A. W. Neill, member in tho Federal
House for Comox-Alberni. will read
with pleasure the Eololwlng vigorous
speech delivered by our member on
the Rules of the House:
"Mr. Speaker, the report contains
twu recommendations, ns the mover
has said, but ln tbem both there is
evidence of a tendency to divest this
house of a certain portion of
its responsibilities and to hand ihem
over to other bodies, sometimes to the
cabinet, sometimes to boards, and
sometimes, as In this case, to committees. Uut all these bodies to which
we are invited to hand ovor our authority are not so directly responsible
to the people as wo are, and they
function In a way which prevents that
desirable publicity being shed on their
proceedings which is associated with
our deliberations and actions iii tills
"Now, there are two recommendations, and I propose to deal with them
separately. The first ono is to tho
effect that estimates may be sent to
a special or standing committee, hut
It provides that those estimates must
also go through our committee of
the whole hefore tliey have any legislative sanction. It appears to me, sir,
lhat on the face of it, if it does uot go
any further than that, it is a comparatively inocuous and, to tell the
truth, a somewhat feeble suggestion.
It reminds me of the epitaph on a
tombstone in an old English graveyard erected to the memory of a three-
year-old child. After stalling the particulars of the Infant's name and
death this doggerel follows:
"If so soon I would be done, for
"What on earth was I begun for?
"And it seems to me that if this innocuous recommendation does not
really go any fruther. and Is not Intended to. what on earth was it he
gun for.
"It will probably be said In th'.1
corse of this debate, and correctly so,
that In this method of dealing with
estimates has been a success ln the
case of the estimates for the Canadian
National Hallways. Uut the conditions ar entirely different there from
what they are In the action now proposed. The Canadian National Hail-
ways estimates represent wliat is entirely a national proposition. Broad
policies are discussed, you have Sir
Henry Thornton and his staff in attendance, and the leaders of the various groups in tlie house can readily
agree whether agree whether the policy Is a good one or not. But other
estimates are local estimates nnd so
to speak, specialized; think of thn
thousand and one items that comprise the agricultural estimates or
those of the marine and fisheries or
the Post Office Deportment—almost
any of the estimates in fact other than
the larger ones in connection with the
national railways. These Items require local knowledge to illuminate
them, as it were. As you know, the
procedure now is for the minister tc
explain the reason for the estimate
from the hook that is placed In front
of him. If further Information Is required, perhaps the over-burdened
memory of the deputy minister is
drawn on; hut in the last analysis
when it comes down to tho giving of
information for or against that particular Item, Is It not thc member for
the local district whose particular
knowledge Is relied on, and in the
special committee that local knowledge will be lacking except as it may-
he furnished by the few members
composing ihe committee, Now, if this
proposal to send estimates to a pri
vate committee Is to replace discus
slon in committee of the whole, then
lt is vicious, absolutely so. We are
told that that Is not now proposed,
hut I um very much afraid, sir, lhat It
ls the direction In which we will be
heading if we adopt this reioinmeudii-
tlon. it is unreasonable In itself unless it is Intonded logically to go further.
"However, to deal with what is absolutely before us. it is said to he
concurrent; that is to say, that the
discussion In the special committee
will he additional to the discussion
which will take place in this house.
In that case il will be useless; if It
Is useless It will bo wasteful and entirely unnecessary. Once upon a tim.?
an eastern potentate Who had captured a city proposed to burn a valuable
old library. On being remonstrated
with he said: Either these books support the Koran or they are opposed to
it. If they support it lhey aro unnecessary; if lhey oppose it they are
wicked. In either case they are superfluous. Thereupon he ordered the
library to be burned. Now, all wc obtain from this recommendation, provided It 1" not Intended to go any further, Ib that the overworked minister
—because he is busy at this season of
the year—aud his equally overworked
deputy—who Is also very busy—Bhall

Session Draws
To A Close
(Special to Cumberland Islander)
Victoria, B. C, March 13.—British
Columbia's seventeenth legislature
ends this week its first session, of
eight weeks' duration, with a slightly
better than average record of accomplishments In tlie redemption of preelection promises. Solution of the Pa-
cillc Great Eastern problem is measurably advanced by the authenticated enlistment of Canadian Pacific and
Canadian National co-operation in
shaping the future destinies of the
provincial road and the territories
it serves, as attested by their joining
with the local government and equal-;
ly sharing costs of a thorough survey
of the situation—also by the receipt of
definite offers of purchase of the road :
on better terms of the people who
own It. Futherance of agricultural industries and their extension by systematic colonization are established
through the newly.created Marketing
aud Colonization branches. Industrl-
al activity in inevitably stimulated by
the appropriation of a larger sum for j
new roads and bridges, repayable from !
motor fees and gasoline tax revenues, |
than in nny previous year In British '
Columbia's history. These works as
employment and purchasing factors
must further promote community pro«-
perlty. The innovation of ear-mark-1
ing $100,000 ot this lateBt road loan :
for mine development roads and trails |
and improvement of the mining laws
and regulations generally, will stimulate the growth of one great basic
Industry; whilo postponement of the
enforcement of higher scale timber
royalties will stabilize and foster another. Reorganization of the game
control department and extension of
new privileges to farmers In connection with raising and selling game
birds must work for more efficient and
more economical administration and
create a new and profitable by-product
i industry for dwellers ln rural areas.
The further spread of succession duty
! exemption and arrangements for a survey of all incidence of taxation pre-
decates substantial reductions in provincial levies when the recommendations attached to auch survey show
the way. The forthcoming abolition
of the Industrial and Land Settlement boards and other superfluous departments will make for lower government costs and charges. Provision
of access facilities for Strathcona Park
and for utilization ot the extensivo
waterpowers wiil go far toward expansion of tourist business and ot
large mining and other industrial enterprises on Vancouver Island; while
tbe authorization of the Canadian!
Northeastern Railway similarly will
make for immediate and permanent
good times in the vaster northland to
which the eyes of all America now ar-3
turned, by facilitating the opening of
mines and encouraging new industries
In Uie rich hinterlands. All in all it
has bcen a useful business session,
and therein worth its cost—firmly establishing the new Tolmie government
lu public confidence.

Mourns Relative
Sister of Mr. Thomas Graham
Died Thursday
MrB. Jean Graham, sister of Mr.
Thomas Graham, consulting engineer
of tbe Canadian Collieries and Western Fuel Corporation of Canada, died
Thursday morning at the residence of
her brother. The deceased was for
a number of years a resident of Cumberland, moving over to the mainland
a few years ago with her son, Mr.
Charles Graham. She had bcen in poor
health for some time and In January
came to visit her brother, Mr. Thomas
Graham. During hor residence in
Cumberland ,the deceased lady became
very well liked and her many friends
In the district will sympathize with
the family in her loss. She was a
native of Waterside, Ayrshire, Scotland, aud has been a resident of B.C.
for upwards of twent-one years. The
funeral will take place on Sunday.
March 17th at 2:15 p.m. from the
undertaking parlors of Mr. T. E.
Banks for service in the Cumberland
United Church at 2:30 with the Rev.
J. R. Hewitt, pastor officiating. Interment will take place in the Cumberland Cemetery and ft Is announced j
from the undertaking parlors taht no ;
flowers he sent.
Expansion Is
(Special to Cumberland Islander)
Victoria, March 13.—Undoubtedly
the utilization of Campbell River power primarily guarantees rapid expansion   of   mining   and   paper   milling
■ large scale operations and the establishment of a Coasi Smelter by which
a fuller measure of the profit of British Columbia's mineral output will bc
kept nt home. Further it would Been)
to point* to later economical electrification of Vancouver Island railway*
and their extension to Quatslno, giving a time-saving rail connection for
trans-Pacific trade. Similarly, construction of tiie Canadian Nortbeast-
1 em to Fort Graham and its ultimate
extension  thence to a junction with
, the Edmonton, Dunvegan & British
Columbia road and through that road
: to the Canadian Pacific's direct line
[ to Chicago  may  produce  a two-day
I time saving for Oriental-American
exchange of products which means
millions of dollars gained In silk
handling alone. It also means removal
of the isolation of Alaska and an era
I of renewed activity for that Territory,
with reflected advantage to the business Interests of British Columbia, hy
linking by the most direct route the
hub of United States commerce with
the Alaskan town of Hyder.
Officers on tlio Reserve of Officers

Mr. Arthur Gatz, the well known j
barber, has returned to Cumberland,
after a residence in Vancouver cover-
ing the past five years. Mr. Gatz has
again started business for himself in
Cumberland and haa been busy during
the past two weeks meeting a large
number of his old friends and patrons.
He was in business for himself in |
Vancouver for a few years, but decid-;
ed after being under the doctor's care
for a few weeks to return here. He j
has taken over the store lately occu- j
pled by, and still known as Rickson's
store, where he will be pleased to1
welcome old friends and new.
Ou Wednesday evening the ladies
bridge club met at the home of Mra.
MacNaughton. Bach player represented a tree ,and partners did not
play more than one hand together,
each person moving lo a different
table every hand. Those present Included Mrs. Hicks, Miss Sehl, Miss
Tarbell, Mrs. Mumford, Mrs. Conway,
Mrs. Bryan, Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Dick,
Mrs. Clinton, Mrs. Cameron, Mra.
Eadie, Mrs. Shortt. Mrs. Nunns, substituting tor Mrs. Stevens, Miss Burroughs, Mrs. Murray and Mrs. Cope
were Miss Galllvan. Mrs. Jeffrey and
Mrs. Wing.
Miss Jean MacNaughton and Miss
Alice Simms, whose birthdays occur
on the fourteenth and fifteenth of
March respectively, celebrated tbe
occasion of their seventeenth birthday
on Thursday. Miss Simms and Jean
MacNaughton are room-mates at St.
Margaret's Boarding School. Twenty
two guests sat down to a table daintily
decorated with paddy green streamers
aud St. Patrick's place cards. At each
end of the table a birthday cake bearing green candles were very eft'etive
while the favours were placed In petal
shaped paddy green baskets.
The guests of honour were Mrs.
Spurgeon, principal of St. Margaret's
and Mrs. Russel, secretary.
On Friday last ,the teachers and
pupils of the High and Public schools
held a charming St. Patrick's Tea In
aid of the cement tennis court fund.
On entering the school one was greeted by home cooking and candy stalls
heaped with goodies and effectively
set off with green and white decorations. Tea was served in the domestic
science room, the tables being centred
with yellow daffodils. The large attendance showed Iho Interest taken
by tbe people in this cause, and a
very substantial sum wns realized.
There was an unusally large attendance nt tho "traps" of the Cumberland Hod and Gun Club on Sunday
morning last aud again In the afternoon. In adllion lo a large umber of
members participating In the shoot,
a large number of spectators also enjoyed the sport. The only draw-hack
as Tar ns we could see was the number of young boys crowding thn
shooters. A fenco should he built
and all those not taking part in the
shoot should not be allowed to advance beyond tlie fence, Tbe sport
Is evidently in for a prosperous time
if the enthusiasm displayed the last
two week ends is maintained.
On Saturday night the B.E.S.L, Legion held a whist drive and dance
in the G.W.V.A. hull in aid of one of
their members. Twenty-five tables of
whist were In play, the prize winners
being ladies' flrst, Mrs. Lockhart;

Mr. Schmidt; men's second, Mr. A.
Gray. Refreshments were served and
one of the largest crowds yet seen In
tho Veterans' ball attended the dance.

their opponents In a previous match,
this time won by one match, the games
being seven to six and the points 143
to 138. Some close and Interesting
games were played, the results of
which were as follows, tho Young
People's club being mentioned  first:
Male Minimum
Wage Act In Re=
Built Form Will
Be Introduced
Industries   to   Be   Included   at
Request of Employees
Workers   May   Apply   Secretly   for
Hoard'* Intervention
(By Ilruee Hutchinson)
VICTORIA, March 14—The Male
Minimum Wage Act, inoperative for
some months will be entirely rebuilt
hy the Legislature In the next few
days, it was learned at the Parliament
Sweeping amendments to the act.
constituting virtually a new statute
and affecting thousands of workers
all over British Columbia, will he introduced by C. F, Davie. Conservative
Cowichnn-Nowcastle, who was largely Instrumental In securing the enactment of tlie legislation originally. He
will be supported by Conservatives
generally, it is understood.
The chief features of the new act,
It was learned, will be as follows:
1. The board administering tlie law
will not he compelled to fix minimum
wages for all industries, as it Is under the present act, but Instead, Is
bound to do so if any employee in any
industry asks for this Intervention.
Iu this case the board may fix a minimum wage for the class of work affected, and not for any otber class of
labor employed In the industry. Different wages may be Ilxed in different
parts of the province, according to
the cost of living and similar conditions.
2. The board of its own accord may
intervene and fix wages for any class
of employees without application from
them, where It considers this step
Employees Mil) Act Secretly
Ii, Names of employees applying for
the board's  Intervention need not he
revealed If they desire to remain unknown for fear of losing their jobs.
4. Appeals against and decision of
the board may bo made to any county
court or supreme conn Judge. At
present the hoard's rulings are final.
Basis of Time Varies
5. Wages ma., be fixed on a weekly,
monthly, daily or hourly basis. At
present they are fixed by tbe hour, an
arrangement considered unfair in the
case of some classes of employees,
who are on duly for long hours without actually working all this time.
With these amendments passed, tb-j
wage statute wilt be In operation
All orders fixing minimum wages in
the lumbering and catering Industries
were rejected as invalid by tbe courts,
and as a result the statute Is In a
state of suspended operation. The
courts objected to the hoard's orders
on the ground that they fixed wages
for whole Industries, instead of furl
individual occupations. This view
will be Implemented in the new legl-i-
latlon, under which ihe hoard will intervene only to fix wages for indlvd-
ual occu pat Ions, where it considers
such steps necessary. In other words
no blanket orders fixing wages for
largo Industries Ilk' lumbering will
be undertaken.

THK OFFER of the Comox Logging and Railroad Company, through Mr, Filbcrg, of a site
at Comox Lake, suitable t'or Park purposes, to the
city of Cumberland is a most generous one and
one which the city lathers apreciated very much

that for all time, a suitable camping place will
be available at Comox Lake, able to cater to the

who had been endeavoring to find out from the muddled
books what is the real financial position of the province.
They complain of ihe provincial audit now in progreBa, |

the late government audited their Conservative preileces-1

The Healer from Nazareth
On a certain Friday eve, 1,000 years
ago, Mary ,the famous Galilean queen
of beauty, sped from her banquet ball
of Magdala and in her zebra-drawn
chariot went to the abode oi a Healer
at Capernaum.
"Where   is   this   Carpenter?"   she
scornfully asked.
Mary had learned that her favorite
Judas, of Kerioth. was now the follower of an iterant wonderworker
and preacher, llie artisan Jesus cf
Nazareih, and she bad vowed tn win
him back. Peter, the giant Fisherman
at the door, would have slopped her,
Hut he was stayed by a Voice from
above. Haughtily ascending the stair,
she encountered Judas, and with an
Imperious Inquiry, "Where is this .Man
who holds thee from Mary ot Magdala?" looked beyond hlm to the Por-
bou who had wrought his Indifference
to her.
"1 that speak unto you am He!"
The words came trom a Divine Man
at the far corner of the room, who
Ilxed his eyes on her and looked deep
Into the blackness nf her hear'
Against that solemn accusative gaze
she tried vainly to contend. Thrice
she circled around the white-robed
Figure, at laat broke in abject defeat I
and put forth her hnnt#. as if to beg]
for mercy.
Seven Devils Cast Uut
Mary knew herself to be a convicted
sinner. The seven devils ot lust, avarice, pride, envy, indolence, self-indulgence, anger, left her forever. She
knelt at the feet ofthe Man of Xaza-1
reth and bogged forgiveness.
When she rose It was a new woman

ii boy. John Mark who was cured of
lameness. The little boy Joyful 1>

it struck the turban of a Pharisee, one

Priest bad been watching the rise of
the New Teacher and Healer.
Simeon and bis fellow spies, Annas;
and   Malchus.   plotted   to   catch   the;
Healer in violation of the ancient Law
or Torah.   "Let us watch him," they
said,   "whether   He   undertakenth   to

j    Judas, the worldly disciple, waited;
i for Mary Magdalene down at the gate..
;    "Mary," explained Judas, "the rea- j
son I have left thy side to follow the
Carpenter Is because He ts going to j
be  King!    Consider  tbe  wealth  and
honor I can bring lo thee."
Swiftly she moved away from him

ami arKuiiiK the merits am! taking an
acttve pan generally in debate yuu
will goon find that you are not wanted.
Any member butting In—I cannot use
any other word to express the idea-
will find 'bat be has as much weight
there as the Hansard reporter has in
the debates that take plaee in this
"We are told tbat this would shorten tin; debate and save the precious
time of the house. Well, that was the
very belt tbat was held out to us two
years ago when we sold our birthright of free speech, or a portion nf
it at any rate, for a mess of pnttapt.
And a sorry looking mess tbe pottage
was wben we got it; to me it seemed
more like tbe funeral baked meats nf
tbe ancient Egyptians. Certainly It
was very much inferior tn the life
giving pottage ot tbe days nf Isaac
and Baau, and Indeed even inferlur to
What is supposed to be its lineal descendant, tbe brose of the modern
"I would submit to tbe bouse In all
BeriOUBness Uiat there are greater advantages tn be gained by our considering every item in committee of the
Whole than by getting through tiuick-
ly and guing borne, whicli is the main
bait held out in this case. There are
u good many members nf this bouse
myself amongst them- and I um not
ashamed to admit- -who exhibited
great anxiety to enme here and occupy
the honourable position we hold, and
whn by hard fought campaigns and
many prnmlses secured this much
sought boon. We told the people that
we would do our duty to the last ditch
and sn forth. Now are we getting
tired and lazy? Do we want to shirk
tlie obligations which we undertook
when we came here? A few duys, a
week nr two Innger would not make
any great difference. 1 would point
out also, to put It bluntly tbat we are
being paid for being here. 1 admit
that the salary is quite incommensurate with the work we do, but at the
same time we knew what the renum-
eration was when we sought tbe position and if we are not satisfied to do
tbe work for which we were sent hero
we should resign. I know tbere are
scores of men in the district I represent fully as able and quite as willing to represent my constituency.
"Another time-honoured gag will be
trotted nut for our delectation. When
tbe report comes from tbe select private committee wdiat shall be told:
"Now, tbls matter has been seriosly
and carefully -almost prayerfully- ■
considered in the select committee
and the bouse would be well advised
to accept their just and wise verdict."
I can recall tbat gag also; many a
time have 1 heard It lu this house. Let
me give an illustration of whnt actually happened on one occasion. I
was endeavouring in this bouse to
bave the report of a select, committee
cbanged. The committee bad repnrted
something and 1 wished to have their
report, amended. The chairman of the
committee got up ami in sonorous
tones he got off the gag I have mentioned; the matter had been so carefully considered by the select committee that the house would be wise to
follow thut committee's 'mature judgment'. Uut this is what actually happened on tbat occasion. It was a
small committee and tbe recommendation I wished was defeated hy a vote
of Tour to three. One of my friends
nn whom I had relied to support nie
was absent, however, and on my reproaching him afterwards with his
absence he said he was very sorry hut
he bad gone to bave his hair cut; ami
because tbat bon. gentleman bad gone
to have his hair cut something of material importance to certain Interests
In the country had to stand over for
a yeur or. perhaps, be abandoned altogether. That is effect of accepting always the report of a small BOlect
Btandlng committee.
"The other night the bon. members
for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr.
Woodswoth) and my desk mate thc
' hon. member for Labelle (Mr. Hour-
assa) told us, and It was not denied,
that we were railroading divorce bills
through the house at a scandalous
rate I say, it cannot be denied. And
why does that condition exist? It is
just a logical and direct consequence
of ibe very system now proposed.
These divorce cases used to be considered iu this house In committee uf
of tbe whole, but we drifted Into the
dolce fnr nleiite method Of leaving the
whale question to :\ select committee,
with ibe result that divorces are now
rushed through with ihe slightest attention bring paid Ihem That Is tne
natural and inevitable consequence of
ihe same aorl ot system proposed In
this connection; only in this case wr
arc beginning in a small wa> and comparatively geniiy.
"I maj point "in thai thi-- vory
practice lias beon tried elsewhere before   l(  was tried in  lliiiisli Columbia
when I ua* ;, member of tho local
house, ami ii was never tried again.
I goi my climates through, it is true,
Inn by a method which 1 have not

Hut ii was not desirable; it led to log
rolling, most of us know what that
means Now, if the system here proposed were in be adopted 1 might be

my worthy nml genial friend from New
Westminster (Mr. McQarrte), because
at limes he has evinced a certain amount of the milk of human kindness,
and we arc brother Uritish Columbians
and I would sny to him; 'If you
vote for the wise and just estimate,
for my district. I will vote for the rot-
ton unjust estimates for yours,' It is
to be hoped, of course, that neither

the hon. member for New Westminster
nor myself would yield to that temptation.   SHU, Mr. Speaker, you, yourself deem it advisable every day at'
three o'clock to pray that ive be de-,
llvered from temptation,  and somo-1
times I wonder whether it would not
be wise if you renewed the supplication   at  eight   o'clock   for   fear   tlie
strength prayed for earlier In the day
might have waned.
"1 will be nothing but frank; I ad-j
mlt that this recommendation as It j
stands, word for word, and not going
beyond that in the slightest, is com-1
paratively innocuous. Nevertheless i
it Ls a wedge; it is that fatal thing'
known to us in the house as a pre-1
cedent. Why did we spend three days |
last week debating tbe question of
grants for roads? We did so largely]
because we hud this great thing bo-1
hind   u.i,  precedent.    Once  enter  the
fata! path of precedent and It will soon
lead us to all the evils I have suggested. Moreover it is not merely a question of pusBiiig estimates for this post
office or that wharf or something else
of the kind; what is valuable Is the
discussion that arises out of the estimates. Statements which the leaders, the cabinet ministers, hear in
tlieir offices, statements made in caucus, are almost entirely ex parte; arc
the., not? Ifut it is In the light of the
publicity obtained in this house that
the members of the cabinet get the
cross current of public -sentiment. Il
ts of ihe greatest benefit to them, to
us all and. to the country at large to
hear he discussions that take place
even on some comparatively trivial
Item—arguments which would be nil
losi sight of in thia private committee.
"Let me now stato my final objection to this particular recommendation. 1 am utterly opposed to what I
call star chamber methods. Thero
would be no Hansard in this prlva'e
committee; no votes would be record-

ed but merely totals; uo names would

government or a member to speak ono
way on tbe hustings and vote another
in the committee. I referred a moment ago to a friend who was absent
from a meting becau.se ho had to have
his hnir out. Now, 1 do nox wish to
be cynical for a moment but it might
be said by those who are cynical that
the government whip had suggested to
bim that his hair was a little long;
Also it would he open to unscrupulous opponents to accuse a member of
having cast a wrong vote In committee and he would not be able to provo
its untruth; lor a He can always get
ahead of the truth. I am very mucu
afraid, not so much of this particular
recommendation as of what it would
be pulling our power of voting estimates Into the hands of a private
j committee, a hole tu the corner com-
I mittee. one upon whose actions they
I cannot, will not and perhaps dare not

"So much for that pan of tho report; 1 want now to deal with the second recommendation which la of
much greater immediate importance.
I refer to the recommendation with
regard tn the manner of dealing with
private bills. We will do well to remember that this deals with both private and public bills; It may he a bill
or a thousand pages, dealing with the
Companies Act. or with the Criminal
Code, imposing some drastic restriction on, the right of assembly or free
speech. This is the course such a bill
will pursue: After going to thia private committee, where no vote is recorded and where there is no Hansard, It will ho brought back to th'.s
house on two separate occasions. We
kuow that public and private bills
come before this house for only one
hour nn two evenings a week. It may
he said that the bill may be brought
up on Monday and discussed all day,
i but if there were any suspicion that
■ a bill would he opposed very strenu-
i ously it would be brought up at ten
minutes to nine or it might be brought
! up at ten minutes after eight; strike
un average and say it would be up for
one hour altogether. Two advocates
of the bill may speak on it; each is
entitled to speak for forty minuteB, ao
1 there will not be much left of the hour
Some hon. members may have aome
Important amendments to offer, ot
which they may have given notice;
the advocates of the bill, knowing that,
could make it their bimlness to talk
out the bill and at the end of the hour
reading. That would be bad enough,
it would come to tbe house for third
but it becomes much worse. The next
time the bill comes up it stands for
third reading, and it is proposed that
there can he no amendment and no debate ou the third reading; you cannot
put anyone on record from the second reading until the bill has gone
through. Many members vote for tbe
second reading of a bill with thc Idea
of offering amendments In committee,
but under this system we will never
get the opinions of di fie rent members
because bills will be talked out of
committee on to third reading with no
debate and no amendments allowed.
"I am anticipating the argument
which may be brought forward ln fa
vour of thi8 method. It will be said,
'Oh. he la depicting an extreme case;
these things are not done now, because the good sense of the house will
not allow them.' Will it not? Let me
remind hon. members that two years
ago I was opposing the establishment
of the forty minute rule; I pointed out
that If two or three obstructive questions were asked the member's time
would he cut into seriously, and the
answer given was that this would not
be done, that tlme would be allowed
for interruptions. Upon that understanding    perhaps    many    members

I agreed to the forty minute rule, but
; has lhat been the case? It haa not;
: the rules arc strictly enforced, and
I quite properly so once we adopted
| them, ao do not let us be beguiled by
the suggestion that the rule reads one
; wny but that We will be allowed to
do something else.
"There i-s one other feature of the
matter to which I would like to direct the attention of tbe house.   Thin
rule will be introduced immediately,
: and there are two important private
bills coming up this session, the Sun
Life bill and the Bell Telephone hill.
I think I voted for one of them last
year, so I am not particularly antagonistic to them, but I can see what
may happen to these hills and I am
opposed   to   it.     When   they   were
I brought in the other day on second
reading there was practically no de-
j bate, in the expectation that the de-
. bate would take place In commutes
! of the whole.   Now, unannounced, we
j will be deprived of that right; we can-
! not go back and debate the bills on
second reading, ho all we nave before
, us is two short periods of perhaps ten
' minutes each, after which the bills
. stand for thiv rending without debate.
< li this Iniquitous rule it to be adopted
{let us at least send lt back to the com-
J mittee with instructions that it shail
I not take effect until next session.
!    "I frankly admit that the rules wero
abused last session; these and other
bills   were   deliberately   obstructed.
I Tbere is hardly a privilege we enjoy
j which is not subject to abuse at times,
'but because In per cent of the mem-
I bers abuse a privilege are we to de-
] prlve the other 90 per cent of their
'' rights?   Social conventions do not al-

I like tn* colour of his hnir or the tie
{ ho wears; It ia held that is too drastic
a remedy, and I submit that this rule
is also too drastic for the difficulty it
assumes to correct.
"It may be said that I am merely
offering destructive criticism, but that
Is not Uie cnose; I can easily suggest
un appropriate remedy for the obstruction which undoubtedly occurred
last year. I suggest simply the use of
the rule we have had for many years,
that ls, thg closure; that is the correct
thing to do in such a case, simply put
on closure. Almost every government tn the world has the closure
rule in some form or othor, but some
hon. members will say that closure
is objectionable. Why, this ig simply
Ossa piled upon Pelion, with respect
to closure; this is a hundred times
worse than closure heaped up, pressed down and running over. Under
closure you must give notice, and the
debate can continue until two o'clock
the following morning; each member
is limited to twenty minutes, so that
thirty or forty men may speak, bul
here we will be limited to perhaps
two speakers. And as an aside, may
I draw attention to the incoherent
condition of our rules at present owing to the way we tinkered with Them
two years ago. Now we have one rulo
which says we can take a vote under
closure at two o'clock in the morning and another which says we must
stop the debate at eleven o'clock. Our
mess of pottage is all spattered up
with red tape like the seals on a
Christmas parcel.
"I hope the house will reject this
motion altogether. The first part ls
only weakly evil, but it has potentialities of harm which make it undesirable; the second part Is wholly poi-
sonous and destructive, sulaerslve of
the right of speech, both p:opositlons
are unsound in principle, and will be
unworkable in practice. I fully believe that not one-lialf the members
of this house knew this question was
coming up today, and not half of them
have been made acquainted with the
effect theso recommendations will
have if adopted, so in order to give
the government and hon. members on
both sides of the house an opportunity to see what they are voting on, I
um going to move that this debate be
adjourned. I have not solicited anyone to second my motion, but if anyone cares to do so in order that the
matter may be discussed better lu
tbelr caucuses or Iu somo other way,
they may do so. I move the adjournment of the debate."

There was a look of terror in the

Once again, Hon. W, D, Enler, Minister of National Revenue, is using

from employers, corporations, and
trustees or persons acting in a fiduciary capacity. It applies to year
ending  December 81, 1928.
For instance, employers have to Bio
a return giving the amounts paid each
person in salaries, bonuses, commissions, and (ees where the amount was
$1,000 or more, or where the salary
or wages was at a rate of $1,500 or

A Scottish Investigation
I    Pur tho past fow years, tho Hoard
■ of Health of Scotland lias been car-
j rying on an Investigation in regard
I to the ultrition of school children, In
! tlio .schools of seven centres selected
I for the study, the children were di-
I vlded Into groups. The objective was
j to ascertain whether or nol the chll-
i dren who received a daily ration of
■ milk would show an Improvement
I in health greater than iIioSq who did
j not receive the milk, or those who re-
I COlVOll  a   blsCUfl   only.
The result was that the children receiving milk were, after a time, found
|to be twenty per cent, heavier an.)
! taller than those not receiving milk.
] There was. In other words, a decided
Improvement in growth. Tlie general
, health of many of ihe milk ration
I group   was   noticeably   better.    This
improvement was not temporary, for
they have continued to improve while
the milk ration was maintained during
a Becond period of investigation.
This is not the only Investigation
of the kind that hae been made.   Other
| studios of similar nature, in nianv
countries,   have   shown   that,   during
' the growing years, milk, as an article of diet, is essential, Tlie need and
value of milk cannot be too strotiglv
emphasized, because Wo have nu substitute fur It.
The practical lesson for parents
and those in charge of children is
to see that their children arc not being handicapped through the lack of
milk In the diet. Milk ls uot u complete diet for school children, hut no
diet Is complete without milk.
Milk may be used iu many ways,
li  Is necessary that It be drunk.   It
1 may he taken on cereals and other
foods; It may be used In cocoa, In
milk puddings or In any other similar manner. It need hardly tie said
that safe, pure milk only should be
used, and that means milk from
