Boyer, Liberal member for Vaudroull, presented petitions from 400 farmers' associations protesting against any proposed chaugo which would permit tho importation of oleomargarine into Canada. He said tho petitions were signed by 29,000 good farmers. Daylight Saving. Sir George Fostor, replying to Mr. Bolvin, said tho daylight saving bill will bo introduced and passed this session. Parliament would have to decido whether or not the bill will be put Into effect this summer. Hon. Frank Oliver said he had received a book entitled tho "Fiddlers" by Arthur Jlee, which is prohibited entry into Canada, under penalty of a heavy fine of $5,000 or five years Imprisonment for having it in one's possession. "I have tho book," said Mr. Oliver amidst genoral laughter. Mr. Oliver said he had It and had read it and that it was a powerful arraignment of tho liquor traffic of England. He askod why it had been prohibited entry into Canada. Sir Robert Borden said he would have to enquire of the officials of tho department of the secretary of tho state. Drop Extension Bill. The prime minister thon announced that in view of tho vote taken yesterday on the resolution to extend tho life of parliament it would not bo sent to the senate or further proceeded with. The vote of S2 to. 62, he said, showed that parliament falls short of either unanimity or practical unanimity. Under Vi'i circumstances there would be no further action on tho part of the government. This means that tho life of paidiament will expire on October 7 and that a general olection is inevitable. The announcement was received with some desk-pounding by members on both sides of tho houso. J. G. Turriff brought up the question of the shortage of farm labor in the west by reading an article describing conditions from the Winnipeg Free Press on July 11, he said that the situation was serious and that a considerable number of extra men will be required to harvest tho crop. Farm Labor Sir Robert Borden said that negotl-uations had taken place between tho representatives of the Canadian and tho United States government with the idea of bringing about co-operation in connection with the supply of labor for the two countries. It was proposed to make an arrangement for regulation of labor so that excess labor in ono country could be used In the othor, a memorandum had been drawn up which would be acted upon. Sir Robert referred to the conference held at the capital on Saturday in regard to which announcement had already bean mado. W. A. Buchanan, of Medicine Hat, reforred more particularly to tho situation in Southern Alberta. He thought that the supply of farm labor should be organized by the Dominion and provincial governments. Hon. W. J. Roche, minister of the Interior, explained in detail tho arrangements which it was proposed to carry out. He explained that the general plan Is to bring a number of men from tjie States across tho border whore the crops arc harvested earlier thon In Canada. Provision is made that no obstacles shall bo placed In the way of laborers crossing the border. Dr. Roche held that no stone would be lort unturned to secure tho j'nocessary help. Arrangements were also being made with the provincial government to distribute amongst the farmers the men secured. Mr. Oliver aBkcd it any steps had been taken to bring back from England the 12,000 soldiers physically unfit for service at tho front. Mr. Roche said that this was a question which affected the military department. J. A. Robb, of Huntingdon, resented tho suggestion In tho Winnipeg Free Press article that laborers from Quebec would not go west because of their resentment over tho support given the conscription bill by western members. This, he said, was in lino with tho many misrepresentations about Quebec which have been spoiling Ink and paper for weeks past. As a matter of fact there was a groat shortage of labor In Quebec and many women are working In the hay fields. Levi Thompson and other members of the housb urged on tho government the desirability of immediate action. Act Against Profiteers Replying to a question by Archie McCoig, Sir George Foster said that tho report of W. J. O'Connor, cost of living commissioner on cold storage conditions in Canada Is being considered by the government, and that action will be taken in regard to it.
