Motion Was Moved by Rodolphe Lemieux and Supported by Several Liberals Before Minister Announced Policy Ottawa, Jan. 15.-Hon. L. P Pel-letier, postmaster-general, stated to the house this afternon that the government is now considering a parcels post system for the Dominion and that it is quite possible that something may be done during the present session. The statement was made during the course of a discussion of Hon. Rod-olphe Lemieux'a resolution calling for the establishment of a parcels post-Half a dozen members from different parts of the Dominion and representing both sides of the ihouse, spoke in favor of the resolution and the postmaster-general also gave it his endorsement. He Baid that he was giving close attention to the working out ot the plan recently adopted by the United States. He felt the Canadian post office should be able to make a Buccess of it, and In this respect would place Canada on a par witih other nations. He intimated that the bystem would be by zones, not by a flat rate, since with the great distances In this country, to have a fiat rate would bankrupt the department. Members of the house who spoke in favor of the resolution were - unanimous in believing that it would have a salutary effect in reducing express rates in this countryj which were characterized as outrageous. Instances were given of the hardship that was caused by the exoesive charges of tlhe companies, and it was felt that even in addition to the competition of the parcels post that there should be a railroad revision of express rateB. The question was introduced by Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux (Liberal) in the form of a resolution declaring "that, in the opinion of this houss the establishment of a cheap parcels post system would be to the advantage of the consumers o� Canada." Cheaper Living Mr. Lemieux quoted extensively from the report which had been prepared by Prof. McKenzie for the Toronto board of..trado on the question of the high cost of living, and which found in the lack of a parcels post system one influence tending to tin-crease the cost of living. Mr. Lemieux expressed the opinion that the time was now ripe in Canada for the . government to adopt a policy of par-| eels post and he did not feel that there need be any hesitation or shame in adopting the system recently established in the L'*nited states. As regards postal matters, he said That the United States government bad very often followed the Canadian example in postal matters and two or three years ago had adopted entirely the Canadian system of postal savings banks. He believed that the main opposition to " such a system came from: the small store keepers " and from the express companies. He pointed out the very great contrast Between the rates on parcels from England and those mailed in Canada. "A parcel," he said, "can be sent from London, England, to Vancouver cheaper than it can be sent from London, Canada, to Vancouver. That is a sample-of the general state of affairs and until the United States recently adopted its system- the same extraordinary state of affairs was found there.'' He reviewed the long agitation which had taken place in the United States, leading up to the recent innovation and said that the influence of the 'farmers had been marked in its favor" just as their influence had been marked in furthering the cause of the rural free rnaii delivery. As far as Canada was concerned, even if; some of the country stores did suffer, he.did not think that this objection should be insuperable. Similar objections to reform had been raised^ in the past. Railways, for instance, had found, strong opposition from the stage coaches and steamboats in their earlier stages, and were exceedingly unpopular with the owners of sailing ships'. To come nearer home, the automobile had found many enemies. The post office department today was making a large amount of money and whatever surplus there might be belonged to the people. He j felt that the time had come to make i the necessary expenditure in order , to give to the country a boon which | nearly every other couptrv in. the world possessed today, and he recommended the adoption with whatever changes might be necessary in the U. S. system. Regina Man. Lines Up W. M..Martin, (Liberal), of Regina, said that if the government had in mind any extensions of the parcels post it would find such a move meeting with the general se.tisfaction in the west and both sides of the house would be one on the question. He believed that any opposition there was came from the express companies. He pointed out that at present fruit costing one dollar a basket in the Niagara peninsula cost two dollars express to lay down in Regina and small parts of machinery sent to the west cost more for express than for the actual repairs or the replacement of new parts. Dr. Clarke, Too, Dr. M. Clarke, (Liberal), of Red Deer, said that he had a lengthy experience of parcels post in the old country and perhaps nothing in the public service there brought greater happiness and comfort to the homes of all classes of people. He iiad received many letters from his constituents urging action of this character and he commended the scheme to the government's attention. Express Exorbitant E. M. Nesbit (Liberal, of North Oxford, said he was forced to the conclusion that the express companies i were very much overcharging. In Ontario there was a fair rate on farm products but on other small articles the rates were outrageous. He doubted if a system would taVe away from the small Btores much more than, they had lost already, and he referred to the excellent service which could be given throughout the country in connection with the rural mail delivery. j A barrel of apples, for which he paid two dollars on the Woodstock market, cost him two dollars and thirty cents to express to Montreal. "That, in my. judgment," he said, "is ridiculous. The express companies are seeking their own downfall-When they are in a position to charge they seem to have no idea of curbing their ereed to charge." Mr. J. E. Armstrohg, (Con.), who followed, said he was glad to seethe members of the opposition taking an interest in the question. When the Liberals were in power he urged upon Mr. Lemieux tho desirability of establishing a parcels post system. The then minister had referred to the many petitions he had received from retail merchants protesting against the inauguration of this system. He was as well informed- on the subject as he is today, but he had done nothing. Mr. Armstrong expressed the view that'the establishment of a parcels post system would compel the express companies to, reduce their rates. Minister Agrees Hon. L. P. Pelletier, Postmaster-General, informed the House that as the result of an inauguration of a parcel post in the United States, the Canadian postoffice has been carrdng a large number of parcels mailed on the other side of the line. It would be necessary to continue to do this until a new parcels post convention had been arranged between the two countries. "If, we have to carry the parcels of other countries it is too bad if >we do not carry our own. It places- us in an inferior position-; Consequently, it is our duty to do something.- Mr. pelletier referred to the -'fast that many countries have established a parcels post system. The  United States was the last country to take the plunge. During tho first week the system was in operation, additional al mail amounting to four'rfliUion pounds had been handled' by the department. This involved an immense increase in the work of the staff. There was no doubt, -howeverj that the time had arrived when something along similar lines must be done by Canada. Rut the matter would have to receive very serious consideration.

"And you got up and gave.her your seat?" queried his 'wife. "No," replied Warner; ''another fellow got ahead of me, but I had to wait five minutes for: hid."-Harper's.
