And that BILL AND DAN HAVE HAD ENOUGH. The bill for the inking over of the Canadian Northern railway lines is having a rather rough passages through the House of Commons. It is but natural that it should. With the reputation which Mackenzie and Mnnn have made for themselves the bill couldn't expect anything but. rough sailing. Some eastern interests are bucking the passage of the act because they are opposed to the government ownership of railway. So far as they nre concerned there should be no worry. Their attitude is too transparent. The main objection to the bill, however hinges on the fact that (here seem* to bo a disposition on the part of the government to pay Mackenzie and Mann too much for their promoters" stock. It is argued that, it the government does not step in and take tho road over, it will go into the hands of a receiver and the promoters' stock would then bo worthless; hence there Bhould be no question about what Mackenzie and Mann should bo paid for it. The answer is nothing. But the government seems to be of the opinion that Mackenzie and Maun should bo given a fair deal.

Ottawa. Aug. 27-W. F. MacLean In the commons today inquired as to the truth of cable dispatches tHat the British food controller has given notice that the importation of br.con from Canada will be stopped. He also asked as to the truth of the statement that the American government had stipulated that in return for financial help had asked the British government to order both munitions and supplies in Canada. Sir Thomas White in reply read the official memorandum given out by the imperial munitions board last week announcing a gradual curtailment of the orders for munitions in Canada. He ndded that arrangements had been made to continue the financing of purchases of munitions in Canada at the rate of about $30,000,000 a month until the end of the year. Sir Thomas also explained that about $30,000,000 is being provided for the purchase in Canada of cheese, hay, oats and flour. Sir Robert Borden had previously told .Mr. MacLean that he had no information in regard to the announcement attributed to. the British food controller more than what has appeared in the press. Sir Robert Borden made his promised statement dealing with the request of Sir Sam Hughes that Colonel Bruce's reply to the Baptie report on medical conditions in the overseas services should be tabled .in parliament and printed. The prime minister said it had been decided that Colonel Bruce's memorandum should not be tabled. It was, he said. In no way an official report, not having been authorized by any one in authority. Thi3 was shown by the fact that it has been sent by Colonel Bruce to a number of members of the house. Sir Robert added that Colonel Bruce had been transferred to the British army medical service and as his memorandum criticizes that service this was another reason why it was not deemed advisable to make it public. Sir Robert said he desired to correct a misapprehension which has arisen out of the statement that Colonel Bruce had not been called as a witness by the Baptie board. Tho record showed, he said, that Colonel Bruce appeared before the commission as a witness on several occasions. The prime minister also read a cable from Sir George Perley denying the statement made by Sir Sam j Hughes to the effect that under the 1 overseas minister, the administrative j staff in London has increased from fifty to twelve hundred men. Sir George Perley stated that while ' in December 1916 the headquarters | staff consisted of 125 officers and GC6 j men, In August it consisted of 139 officers and 480 men, inclusive of tho | staff at Brighton which had been ab- j sorbed. j Sir Thomas White made a statement j in reply to an editorial in the Regina j Leader, which ho said did a grave in-! justice to the Bank of Montreal. The ! Leader had stated that on tho recent � one hundred million bond issue, the 1 Bank of Montreal had made a eommls-1 sion of $1,750,000. I The minister explained that the! Bank of Montreal, acting as agont for the government had placed tho loan through the J.P. Morgan syndicate and that the commission which covered the cost of underwriting and the expenses was paid to the Now York syndicate and not to tho Bank of Montreal. Sir Robert Borden announcod that it would not be possible this session to introduce legislation based upon the report of the special committee which inquired into the matter ot soldiers' pensions. Sir Robert said that it was recognized that-the cor.t ot llv-Ing had advanced since last yoar. This would have to be recognized by tho new parliament whon it deals with tho matter and he suggested that any legislation passed should be made retroactive so as to apply to pensions from April 1, 1917, the beginning of the present fiscal year. Sir Robert added that tho matter would receive the consideration of the government as soon as the house rises. Dr. Ncsbitt asked It the new scale of pensions would apply to pensions both past and future. Sir Robert replied in tho affirmative. The house then resumed consideration of the C.N.R. bill, the Liberals continuing their opposition to the do-i tails of tho measure. LI.
