London, Aug. 11.-George Niccoll Barnes, minister of pensions, who has attended the meetings of the war cabinet since Arthur Henderson started on hli mission to rtussian, probably will succeed Mr. Henderson as labor representative in the war cabinet.

Winnipeg, Man.. Aug. 13. - There were a lot of buyers In the market to-1 day for cash wheat and oats, but sell- J ors were few and far between, and as a consequence very little business was i done. Buyers say they would pay any j reasonable price to get grain for their i requirements, but holders are hanging' back. It is said that stocks owned by elevator companies are pretty well I exhausted, and if there is considerable} quantity of wheat in the market for | sale it must be held by farmers. Prlc-: es were a little better than Saturday. I Oats buyers were in the market dur-! ing the early part of the session, but i dropped out later and trade in this j centre was neglected, sellers linding; it hard to get quotations. Trade in | barley and flax was very small, for fu-' ture delivery there was a moderate , trade. October wheat opened at i S2.14i�, nearly lc lower than Satur-j day's closing quotation, but was bid | up to $2.IS early in the session, but l later sngged 9c to $2.09. October and j December oats futures opened easier | and manifested a downward tendency. The May delivery was traded in for \ the first time this season, the opening j price being C5c. Good weather in western Canada and the disturbed state of the southern market owing to the food bill law restrictions are responsible for the slump in the October wheat. Cash wheat closed at the maximum $2.40 for No. 1 Northern, No. 2 Northern also closed at the maximum and other grades were 1 to 2c higher than Saturday's close. October closed $2.09 Oc lower. October oats closed �2c lower, December %c lower. October flax closed 4c higher, November 4c higher and December 6c higher. Barley 'Ac higher for October.

SESSION LIKELY TO BE PROLONGED Ottawa, Aug. 13.-That'the length of the scsbous depends upon the nature j of the franchise bill to be Introduced i by the government Is the general opln- t ion around the corridors of parliament. Apart from the measures of a contentious character the work of the session could be concluded at a date not later than Saturday, Sept. 12. Should this legislation bp of such a nature a.s .to meet with opposition of the members who sit to the left of the speaker there is no telling when the house will rise. Business still to come down includes supplementary estimates which are productive of a great deal of discussion. In the commons this evening Hon. J. C. Dohorty introduced tlio military service act, 1017. He said that the purpose of the bill is to make complete provision for the taking of the votes of soldiers overseas and elsewhere. Additional legislation was necessary, ho said, because of the changed conditions since the lirst legislation was passed in 1015. Mr. Doherty announced that the chief change in the new law is that provision will bo nv.ido for complete election on the other side of the Atlantic. Special overseas clerk of the crown in chancery will ho appointed who will attend to all details of election. Special returning of- ficers will bo appointed to take the vote. In Franco ballots will be sent to tho office of the Canadian commissioner and in England to. .the office of tho high commissioner. At these central points the votes will be counted and the result added to the general result in Canada will determine tho result of the election. The minister said this plan was necessary because of the l-i-.'Se number of votes to bo tj,ken and because of the danger that if tho ballots were sent to Canada they might be lost on the way. A general returning olllcor will be appointed in Canada whose duty it will bo to add the overseas and home votes together in order to decide the general result. LIEUT.
