I have ways acted according to my interpretation of the right, and I will willingly do a thing that is wrong because it might prove popular with a certain class or section of the membership. I appreciate the honor from the bottom of my heart, and I consider it second to none in the Dominion." Prolonged applause. Adjournment for the morning was taken just after the, president's address, and the delegates moved to the outside oi the church, where moving pictures and the regular official photograph were taken. " Constitution Amendments The morning session of the invention was taken up with discussion on amendments to the constitution, and with the presentation of the municipal hail scheme by R. E. Malcolm, president of tho hail insurance board. Increase Tees The outstanding amendment to the constitution was the proposed increase in membership Tees from $1.00 to $2.00. It was evident before discussion had proceeded at great length, that there was a more or less unanimous feeling in favor of the increase. A few delegates objected to It on the ground that it would make the task of securing new members more difficult, and would thu3 militate agairtst the very thing upon which the organization should, concentrate this year. One 'delegate, in a very spectacular ' appeal, advised the assessment of eer-1 i tain profits accounting to the United { i Grain Growers as a direct result of the j efforts of local U.F.A. secretaries. With j L the constitution. The question became never ! Quite a llpate(1 on�. when a minis . . j member of the organization wanted F T.�Vi, 1 know if ministers would be barred under the resolution which, says that "any person actually engaged in farming"" shall vreplace the former ruling that "anyone interested iu farming" may become a member. One speaker thought that the U.F.A. could conduct their business quite efficiently without; the help * of ministers, and that it would be better for the clergy tq **rc-, main in their spiritual sphere." The 1 amendment lost, howev.er, and that part of the constitution stands as it did. / Change In Election of Officers The only regular resolution dealt with was that proposed by the' Morm local, which is as follows: "Whereas, this convention realizes tho danger of non-farmers and politicians beiug elected to our office body, and, "Whereas, we a3 members ,of the TJ. F.A. wish to prevent this occurrence, "Be it resolved, that each and every candidate nominated he required to state before this convention assembled, and before the ballot is taken, the exact source of his principal income or source of livelihood." There was very little discussion on tho matter and the resolution was passed. -Hail Insurance f The remainder of the morning ses-. | sion was taken up with a survey of hail insurance conditions, with a complete outline for the. intended municipal scheme, by E.

"We want an organization,'* said one man. "that won't have to ask the government for what they want, but that i3 strong enough to say 'we demand.' If we had been in such a position a few weeks ago we could have told the government that the increased freight rates shall hot go into force until we have an explanation." (Applause). When the question was finally put, it carried unanimously, and the increased fee applies to 1918 dues. Affiliated memberships will automatically be increased from 50 cents to $jL00. The question of raising the fee ror life memberships, wafcdeferred until the board could bring in a full statement of the plan proposed, couch- four line companies, with but a half million acre 3 of crop insured.

The municipal co-operative hail insurance act came into force in Z8$4, and Mr. Malcolm declared that no .one knew the defects of the scheme better than the board. However, some good had been accomplished, and since the act came into operation, over $1,603,000 had been paid injclaiftis throughout the I'G municipalities concerned, with an expense ot. $76,000,00U 'for . administration, and adjustment^' It'was cited that during the paht fbur years, claims paid, or losses had amounted to more than the amount received-'in nremi-urns by the line companies. In view of this condition, Mr. Malcolm said that farraers could hardly expect a decline ia the rates charged, ;but an the other hand could look for ;an increase this year.
