Magrath, fuel controller. The Ilniterl States, he pointed out, Is demanding prompt return of cars and if there is delay it Tnay seriously interfere with the securing of the necessary supply from across the line. Delay means coal shortage for munition plants. Delay Very Serious The matter of delay in unloading lias �been so serious that Mr. Magrath has taken up the matter with Sir Henry Drayton, chairman of the railway commission. Sir Henry at once showed his willingness to co-operate and a drastic order has been passed by the hoard to compel rapid unloading and return of cars. - The order increases the demurrage on coal cars.

He said that a number of changes had boon mado but that others wore necessary. Sir Robert Horden said he would sec If> the Information asked for was available. On tho second reading of Sir Thorn-aa White's bill to provide for the purchase by the government of the capital stock of the Canadian Northern railway, tho minister of finance replied at. some length to the opposition criticisms of the government proposal, lie defended the proposal to preserve the corporate entity of the company. The taking over of all the physical assets of tiio company, he said, would involve a large expenditure for which it would not be.possible to secure the money at the present time. Sir Thomas dealt with, the argument thai according to the Drayton-Acworth report, the capital stock of the C.N.It. has no real value at the present time, and tho value of the stock should not therefore bo submitted to arbitration. There were, therefore, he said, important omissions in the Drayton-Acworth report, notably the lands aggregating several million acres deferred payments on these lands amounting to seven mil MORMON TEMPLE, * CARDSTON, TO COST 20 YEARS' TITHING (From Our Own Cnrrr-HiKmilfnt'i Raymond, Aug. Ifi.-"If this Is a criterion of the crowds that regularly attend the conferences of the Taylor stake, the fact Is evident that a larger chapel must be built." These are the words of a visitor in commenting on the attendance at 11n; convention of the Church of .Jesus Christ of Latter Di.y Saints which was held hero during tlio week-end. The congregations at all sessions were exceptionally large, reaching the climax -on Sunday afternoon, when a great number were unable, to gain admittance to tho church. Apostles Anthony W. Ivins ana llyrum M. Smith, the latter a son of tho president � of tho church wore present which no doubt was partly responsible for the largo attendance. A feature worthy of special mention was the music. The choir, under tlio direction of Olias. Strong, with W. L. Mitchell at tho organ, did excellent work as well as the individual numbers. .Mrs. .\'at:ie Clark IV Arc, of Diamond City, sang Hi roe solos. The conference was c.illr-rt to order at 1(1 o'clock Saturday morning by President II. S. Allen. The first speaker was Theodore Jirandley, of Stirling, who commented on the spiritual and temporal condition of the people of the stake. lie also mado a special plea for the support of tlio Red Cross and Patriotic funds, adding that the people of Magrath set a worthy example, when, in a recent campaign they raised over four dollars per capita. The bishops of wards also spoke at the morning session. Tithing was the subject of O. II. Snow's sermon at tho afternoon service.

In regard to these matters, Sir Tlio-nias said the Drayton-Acworth report was not accurate.

The American authorities absolutely insist on this. Recently the ^'nited States increased their demurrage charges, but the Canadian demurrage is now stiffer. "Co-operation is needed if we are to get in the necessary supply." said Mr. Magrath. "Rapid unloading is absolutely- necessary as there is just as great a car and coal shortage in the United States as in Canada. Any delay in returning equipment is only assisting the enemy."

He defended arbitration on the score that such a procedure would be expeditious. They could proceed in a summary fashion to ascertain the value of the stock Whereas a court of record would probably take a couple of years tp ascertain the value of the stock. Sir Thomas then announced that tho arbitrator for the Dominion government would be Sir William Meredith, chief justice of tho province of Ontario, who had consented to act. E. B. Devlin having questioned the qualifications of Sir William Meredith, tlio minister said ho considered him to be eminently fitted for tho work. He said it would not havo been part of wisdom to advance temporary aid to tlio C.N.R. Under tlio proposed legislation all expenditures made would accrue to the people of Canada. Hon. George P. Graham said that the lack of documentary evidence showing tlie wislies of the C.N.R. in regard to tlie matter, it looks as though legislation was being introduced at the request of the financial group hack of the C.N.R. It would be a wonderful and profitable piece of legislation for them. It would greatly increase the value of their holdings. It was strange, he said, that the Drayton-Acworth report should havo made a mistake of several millions and that it should only be discovered today. In view of this discovery the members of the house would have to use their own judgment apart from the findings of commissions. >y tithing in twenty years, and this In addition to the financial support the ,J.'

He also stated that tlio world, is crying for a new witness for God,, yet refused to accept that witness now that it is here. The Book of Mormon was referred to.
