' Tariff on Maehhiery Tlio numefous resolutions dealing with the matter ot a tariff on farm machinery, allcaliing for.the removal of that duty, were combined In one resolution prepared by the'executive, The matter was thoroughly threshed out, every-delegate being strongly in favor of the general request, and tha.| resolution was finally sent .back fOr a second re-draft, to be pahsed on at a later session. Labor Saving Devlees In Addition to machinery, a clause wati added covering labor-saving derJ vices 'for the home. Delegate Irwin, of Barons, who spoke to the tesolution, said that farmers were being compelled to pay %m more on eVeiT bindpr they purchased, since the price of wheat had.been set, or oractlcally |8 advance per month. He siMtnmed the Implement .companies for: discharging their employees directly-after the''piit-breali of the'war, through the fear that there would be no 'demuid (or machinery, and now they wanted to make the farmers pay for that lyis-take, and at^the same time were advertising in the front and-hick covers of "every agricultural pullllcatlon: in the land, that they could not make deliveries'. .'^MTeieahU, -geti^plow shares, so vfh&VH tk'rnse of btrylitif tractors," he aaked^:� - y- .:' � "If the � government won't give us what we ask for in this respect, the union government will not stand very long," declared another delegate.
