It. would affect his own position, he added. Hon. Frank Oliver arose and said ho wished it to be underHtood that the proposal of tho member for Hall-fax had no support from him. Hon.

The house then wont Into committee on the bill to amend tho railway act. which will occupy tho attention of tho house for tho rernalndor of today's session. The postponement of tho consideration of the resolution to extend tho life of parliament caused a considerable buzz of excitement in tho corridors. It probably portends further negotiations looking to tho creation of a union government.

It. realizing that economy in the use of food products was an essential of true patriotism during the ivar, inaugurated a policy in connection with their dining car service which prohibited the purchase of calves, young lambs, littie chickens, and baby pigs, as result of which thousands of these tender but immature animal3 will bo conserved to fulior growth and a very material increase in their value as food supply will result. This action was due to the belief that In tho face of the serious food shortago which the present world crisis threatens to bring upon us, it is criminal to waste an ounce of food or to indulge In dishes which are secured to-day at the cost' of tomorrow. The practice has been extended to wrabrnco nil services operated by the Canadian Pacific, and other Canadian and American lines recognizing the importance of this plsn of conservation of yonug stook, have adopted a similar course. Tho Canadian Pacific dining car service has so contrived that tho high cost of living does not exist insofar as that service In concerned, it always being possible to obtain, in a Canadian Pacific'dining car, a goad metil at a moderate price. This has been made possible by making a close study of the traveller's wants and of the portions loft uneaten which Boon convinced the company that the1 old established custom of serving ex> tremeiy large portions was wasteful and extravagant The result was that iwhen the war broke out and tin �price of foodstuffs began to soar, the {argument was advanced that smaller but satisfying portions at reasonable prices would bettor meet the situation than the former large portions, the maintenance of whteh would have necessitated higher prices with much -vaste. The dletetlo blended menus were then Introduced, first out of consideration for weak digestions, but also with the economic viewpoint that it costs less to have a menu corns**, d of a few dl'ihes for whlttfc there la likely to be a general demand than It does to offer a hundred dishes, tha demand for any one of which Is nn< certain. This brought about the Intro, auction of the single portion or Individual service, particularly for the; benefit of lady travellers, who, as a rule, are less heavy eaters than raenj In the practical form of- price ooty trol and food conservation, tbe C.

It was important because it marks another step of advancement towards the expansion of an enterprise that has proved to be the prime factor in the building up of the farmers' trade of this district to its present largo proportions. Previous to 1009, when a farmer wanted nionoy it was customary for him to come to one of tho local merchants and contract his hay, of course at a prico which was safe for the morchant. The merchant then sold it up tho lino when tho lumber camps wero in need of it and tho farmer was told to deliver his oommodtty at tho nearest station, and ofton at a time that was not always convenient In tho year 1909, however, an agitation was commenced to try and rem edy the condition and several meet-, lngs were held with a view to make wife | bettor marketing conditions. Out of this agitation sprung the organization known as tho South Alberta Hay Growers, Ltd. In 1010 there wore about 40 mem hers and tho principal commodity handled was hay. Tho plan worked out so successfully, howevor, that othor branches of tho farming industry were soon taken In until now thero is a membership of about 200 and tho turnover last year was over a quarter of a million dollars. The company now handles lumber, coal, hay, grain, binder twino, etc., on a percentage or co-operative basis. They havo erected an elevator at Brocket at a cost of $4,500.00 which has had a very successful year. Tho timo lias now come when more buildings havo become im poratlve and in order to secure them a change in tho policy of the company was deemed necessary. At the an nual meeting today a set of amond monts and changes in the bylaws wero conflrmod which gives power to tho iliroctors and managers to acquire buildings for storage purposes at Pincher Crook Station and Brocket, the money to be raised by an lncroase in the capital stock of the company or by making tho business pay a lax ger profit. Heretofore It has not boon tho policy of tho concern to show profits as the margin allowed for handling was always kept at the bare costs, tho momber benefitting In the price secured for his hay or grain or whatever It might be. They havo been working on a capital paid up stock of $G,000.00. It enough stock is subscribed under tho new provis Ions it will not be necessary to in ereaso the profits, but at tho meeting It was decided to leave tho matter so that tho manager and directors can uso their own judgment as to which plan thoy will adopt or whether they adopt both plans. Tho president, John Kommls, open-ed tho meeting and outlined tho bus! noss of the day. Ho congratulated the manager, J. J. Cameron, on tho excellent showing made and stated that the company was entirely out of debt. He pointed out that the time had como when tho members had to decide whether thoy should branch out and enlarge their business or stay under the old system. The speaker was strongly lu favor of branching out and acquiring the needed build lngs. Ho drew attention to tho fact tttat while tho company had handled hay to the amount of $201,151.63 the net profit on the transaction had only been $2,632.58. Tlio profit for the whole yoar under, tho old system was only $3,405.88. Ho also announced a dividend ot 0 per cent. Tho manager then guveva talk explaining the needs ot tlio company In regard to the proposed buildings pointing out the saving to farmers who might otherwise be compelled to leavo their hay outside as Very often happened in the past. He also touch' ed on tho timothy sood proposition in this district and asked for estimates of the' yield this soason. ' The conconsus of opinion was that the ylold would be light even it tho much-needed rain came, as the timothy wns heading out and was very short in most flelda, although the**; yKfi odd fields that had mado good growth. Ho stated that it had been thought best to dolay installing a cleaner nt the station until some experiments now being carried out ;it Fort William by tho Dominion government had beon tested, in that way they would got tho benefit of the government's xporienco. In reply to a question he stated that 48 carlo:ids of timothy was shipped from the district last, ' yoar, comprising fiOO (oils of No. 1 I timothy seed. Ho claimed that this ; district practically sot tho market i prico for this commodity. ! Threo retiring directors wore rc-ap-polnted, W. R. Lees, E. Mnrccllus, and A. Prlmcau, and Thos. Hammond of Summorview was added to the list of directors. A representative body of tillers of tho Boil wero present and they evinced a keen interoBt and understanding In the proceedings. The remarks of the president and inanngcr were punctuated by outbursts of applause and the discussions resulting wore* participated in by the members in a very intelligent manner, showing a thorough grasp of the situation and a willingness to make the company even more successful by any means in thoir power. The fact that thoy wero content to leave the matter of arranging and deciding the need of more warehouse room entirely in tho hands of tho manager and directors speaks volumos for the unbounded confidence in which thoy aro held by tho members. Kcr-zirs to be photographed on thelf estate. The company journeyed to Kllanea, 1.1m famous volcano and a, number ot scenes v^ro taken In .Its depths.

What the Press Agents Say Tho wedding took place at Bromp-ton, London, Eng., of Alexander Ogll-vie McMurtry of tho Canadian artillery and Isabel Dora Strathy, both of Montreal. It was solemnized amidst the nolsos of shells, which wore endeavoring to repel the air raiders then bombarding London. Thero was a suggestion that the ceremony bo postponed, but this was not done. Everybody retained composure and afterwards the brido and groom drove off happily. Wells became his special director.

AT THE MAJESTIC SPIES EVERYWHERE Tho Germans have made use of neutrals for spying purposes to such an extent that today every person arriving in the United States from abroad whether that pernor, be passonger aboard ship or a member of the ship's crew, is carefully watched after ho or sho landB. Tho allies, including the United States, havo suffered much more from tho work of spies than have tho Germans. Tho latter hnd their ngents "planted" in the various countries long before the war. Some of theso spies become citizens of the country in which they carried on their work. Undoubtedly there have beon English and French Bpies in Germany before tho war. Every nation has sought to find out what the other nations were doing particularly in tho military way,' but none of them over went to tho lengths that the German government did. Formerly when war broke out it was the military spy's duty to don the uniform of the country in whicli ho was operating, and he usually worked until he was caught-and shot. Foreign spies In Germany didn't havo very much chance when the groat conflict was let loose in tho late summer of 1014. To tho surprise of the whole world, German troops appeared in unifurms which had never boon hoard of, which German officers themselves didn't even know of until war was declared. This was the "field grey" uniform.. Naturally a spy under those conditions was doomed from the very beginning. It happened that a number of them wore in Germany in August, 1914, and when the war was declared thoy put on tho usual German uniform, procured for the eventuality beforehand. As soon as they appeared on tho streets thoy were Bimply picked up and taken away to bo shot, for nil the Gorman soldiers wero in "field grey"; thero was no othor uniform. And now Uncle Sam is watching the incoming neutrals, particularly tho sailors and captains of vessels. This vigilance has beon called forth by tho recont discovery that neutral captains wore making more than a comfortablo income on the Side by selling information of tho movement of vessels to Germany. A Russian Princess who returnB to her old life, that of the stage for one night only, that she may win the love ot her husband, Is the theme on which is laid tho plot of this season's musical comedy success "Flora Bella" which John Cort will present at tho Majestic next' Saturday night, July 21st, following its long run at the Casino Theatre, New York.
