Rogulatloii of the flow of grain to stabilise the market would be poiilbto If tho pool were established, Mr. Wood Mid. After eraphMlilng the need for per- fect union amooc tho farmers, he told the delegates that by establishing the pool they will complete the greatest task ever undertaken by tho farmer associations. It Is, he added, the first real fight to replace, the competitive trading system with a co-operative one. Not Ponlble in 1921 It will net ha pointed out, to establish the pool In time for the -1921 crop even if the great- est co-operation is secured. "It is the only system that promises he said, "and even if it takes 20 years we should go oil till we accomplish it." Rice Jones, general manager of the United Growers, Limited, wns the next speaker. Discuu Wheat Pool MOOSE JAW. Feb. of proilosed con- stitutional amendments foliowed the opening.of the morning session of the annual convention of the Saskatche- wan Grain. Growers' association here. Hon. 'Geo. P. Laugley, minister of municipal affairs'for the province, In- troduced the discussion on the 'pro- posed wheat pool. The question, he said, Is perhaps the greatest which has ever come be- fore tha farmers for settlement. The wheat board, he pointed out, was re- sponsible lor originating the wheat pool idea. The board, he added, waa never popular until' it had been done away with. Endeavors have been made, he con- tinued, to show that Saskatchewan Is hanging back, although her men were the ones who recognized the full value of the wheat board. He referred to the drop In wheat prices which resulted after the board had been discontinued ami whaat had to be sold in the open market. Farmers had held wheat to stabilize the market but agents put large quantities of It on the market and when there should have been thirty-five million bushels in the ter- minals at Fort William, thure were only 17 million bushels. This defeat- ed the purpose of holding grain but the farmers continued to pay storage on grain which was sold, he declared. Real and False Little aetual grain is being sold on the exchange at Winnipeg, although millions of bushels are sold to ham- mer the market down and force tho farmers to sell what thsy have in storage. Bogus wheat, he continued, is being sold by the millions of 'bush- els and the man 'Interested are out to steal the grain the farmers hare lu storage. The federal government, he said, could stop the robbery of the farmers by closing the exchange. If the grain exchange cannot be car- ___, ____ried on without gambling, it should yielded.

For Success 6f Pool Essentials to the success of the wheat pool he gave as control of the storage facilities, good financial back- Ing and the support of the farmers. far as the work of organization is concerned, it is going forward as fast as possible. He denied that any difference of op- inion exists and stated that Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta anrl Ontario are in complete accord. Facilities must be provided, he pointed out and the railways have both proved "awkward In this re- gard. Proper facilities for. shipping Brain can only be secured through the house at Ottawa, which could al- low the pool the same control as was granted the wheat pool. "A pool at the best can partially he concluded. "It is national system in which your hope lies." Mr. Langley told the convention that only by complete union can tho farmers hope for success. At least 60 per cent, of the farmers must join the pool, he added, to make it successful. Saskatchewan Will Help In answer to questions from dele- gates regarding the attitude of tho provincial government, Mr. Langley said that he had talked tho matter over with Premier Martin, who had ngreoil that if after consideration it was found necessary to establish a wheat pool und provincial support Is necessary, that the provincial gov- ornmsnt will bo willing to Rive any help it ptwsihly ran. Pres. Woodi Speaks IF. W. Wood, president of the Unit- ed Farmers of Alberta, a fraternal delegate, said the establisbmr.-nt of a permanent wheat board would be too dangerous tocaaaa of political III- liuonce. i proposed pool, because It would eli- minate duplication of expenses and profits and lead to expert selling of the crops. Tha greatest difficulty, he held to be the handling of the pool grain at country points, because the farmers only own. 18 to 20 per cent, of the ele- vator facilities. He' advocated con- tinuance of the pool plan. The com- pany, he promised, will give every sup- port to the pool if established. Dunning's Opinion Hon. C. A. Dunning, provincial treasurer, waa asked for his opinion. Tho government, he said, is deeply interested and as a result has appoint- ed a committee to investigate and until he has heard its opinion refused to discuss the pool, although he de- clared himself in favor of national selling of wheat. He asked the farm- era to carefully consider the proposed scheme before coming to a decision. The pool will be seriously handicap- ped by lack of powers which tho wheat board operated under. Farmers have a right, he continued, to see that the interests of the shareholders in provincial co-opera- tive grain handling Institutions are not endangered. With regard to the amount of money received from unclaimed participation certificates resulting from tho wheat board operations, Mr. Lacgluy sug- gested that it be divided between the agricultural colleges of the three prairie provinces. Discussion will be resumed after- the noon recess. US.
