Aug. 16.-The view generally prevails at the capital that snow time will, be here before the general election takes place in Canada. Parliament is still grinding away with no suggestion of an immediate let-up. The idea that-prorogation will take place b.v the first of September has-been practically abandoned. There is sufficient legislation before the house to occupy its attention to the end of the present month unless the proceedings are speeded up and business still to come down will include the more or less contentious franchise bi" and supplementary estimates. These will, of necessity, be large because provision will have to be made among other things for the cost of conducting the election in Canada and overseas. In 189G when parliament declared a natural death on April 25, the government fixed the date of the elections on June 23. thereby allowing two months for the contest. There is no arbitrary rule governing the matter however, and in view of special circumstances now existing in connection with the taking of the soldiers' vote a longer period could be allowed. The situation is really governed by the supply and if the estimates are voted the = government will have funds to last 1until the end of .March. Early December is believed to be the earliest likely : date for voting and it may be deferred Winnipeg, Aug. 16.-In cash .trading today there was a still' further advance of lc for some qf the lower, grades, but better prices fulled to bring out sellers and the -business done was small. One exporting firm appeared in the market for oats, but soon withdrew and business was so slack that it was hard to get quotations until just before the close.

Wheat at Chicago fell today below the $2.00 mark for. the � first time since the recent series of downturns began. Prices of corn and oats declined. Minneapolis cash wheat was down 10c to 20c. Winnipeg cash wheat closed at $2.40 for No. 1 and No. 2 Nor., and lc higher than yesterday's close for most other grades. October was $2.06, Vic higher.
