'Rflff Cjii^-Jtouff �nd Book C3o./Llmllftd. Ottawa, March 8.-That the parliamentary deadlock over tho govern-naenl's naval proposals would not be even temporarily broken vmtil midnight on Saturday was amply veri-fled.. The opposition continued to discussi the bill uhlii the hands o.f the clock pointed to the midnight hour. The sitting is the longest that has occurred. since the division over' the remedial bill legislation of the first session pi, 1906, the house, beitig in continuoiis session for, 12p hours. The closing incidents did not give the slightest indication of a let up by either side. When,Mr. Bordeii moved tijat the liouse adjourn. Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked if iiwas to be iJre-suraed that considdtation of the, same bill would be continued 6n >Ioh4ay- ".As soon as government ordeis are reached we will proceed with, the the considpration of this bill," replied Mr. Borden with emphasis. .4s the members - rose from., their seats, Mr. Wm. German, of \$elland, Started singing, "God Save the King." For a time the notes did not rise above the 'bheering which came from both sides at the instant the speaker left tlie chair. Sooh afterwards fioth sides of the house joined in. Then Dr. Beland, oI.Beauce, struck up "0, Canada," which was sung by the LiherAls.' while > 'large group of ConservaWvies rivalled them with "Rule Brittantk"'and'other airs. When the members of the, opposition had finished "O Canada" they departed ftom the thartuber, but the Conservatives stayed to sing, VGood Night Ladies," a compliment to a large number *o{ the fair sex who were in the galleries. Then'tliey lelt the chamber with cries of ''No surrender." This cry evideiitly indicates the spirit on behaU of the house, fpr throughout the evening the Liberal speakers on a number .of'-occasions .indicated that it was " "theiir � intcnt'iph to keep up the fight next week. ^ The honor of closing tbe long; struggle was given to'F. B. Garvell, ot Carleton, N. B., who throughout tlie week has captained one of the Libeif-al brigades. He was preceded by Hons H. R. Emmerson, who gave way to him at 11:10, the opposition apparr ently adopting this coursie to prevent Premipr Borden irom getting the fteor. The last hour of .the niemorable sesr sion may best be deSctibed by telling of what occurred in-the house during the course of Mr. Carvell's speech, which was devoted entirely to a consideration of the cost of.'^onstrueting two fleet units, as.givenlin the figures submitted to the Ip'use by Mr. Borden on Monday  last. Mr. Carvell tooki exception to. the figures all along the line. He'quoted'-figure?roi the cost of construction^ of .various vessels given to the imperial conler-ence by the admiralty in 1?08,.; .comparing them with, the e'stimatas sub-' mitted to the house by Mr. Bordea Bfonday. Mr. Borden, he said,, had given figures as to 'the cost ,of. construction for the satiie year and iu every case they -were considerably higher. .�. . . For instance, the /imperial conter-ence was told that ,the, armored cruisers it was proposed to build, would cost J9,720,000. Now it was-claimed that the cost would be '$11,982,000. Here was a dilference of.almost one and, a half millions and no information was torthcorcring. as to who, designed the latest statement. ' The premier treated it as confidential; Was it the admiralty or was ;it some one interested in shipbuilding in England ? . , . � - "That," said Mr. Carvell,.'."is what we on this side ol the house want to know."  i Mr. Carvell went; on to' say that the premier had : claimed that it would cost $68,000j000 to build two fleet units in Canada. Hft doubted the amount to cover the cost of -maintenance for ten years and then in order to appropriate $150,000,000 put in an additional few millions for incidentals he woutd have been jiist as logical,should he guess at 30-years and informed the people that the Laurier naval proposals would cost the country $300,000,000. At lli35 p.m. Siir Wilfrid entered the chamber and was received with great Liberal cheering, ,, Mr. Carvell, who, was at the time quotinc irom Burgoyne's navy annual for 1012-13, mentioned another figure for cost of construction which did not agree with tlie estimate given by Mr. Borden. . Mr. Borden rose to explain that this ..was a mistake in Hansard., It had been corrected, he said,'in' the revised edition. "We are getting more light,. We are doing very well this evening," said Mr. Carvell. A few minutes later, Mr. Carvell, in teferring to' the figures presented to tho house by Mr, Borden, said.that they had evidently been prepared by sotnc one, "who had a vivid iteagina-liou aftnr a champagne supper." A nunil'jer of the .Conservatives, who evidently thought that the .reference was meant fob'Premier Borden, kept up a continuous shout for "order." ^ 'They are getting information,- it gives them , a new view of life. I'll give them some"'hibre next week," said the membqi!' tor Carleton, when he could set an opiaortunity to speak. From 11:50 to II'.Sd, INIr. Carvell proceeded to speak amidst much noise from the other side of the house. There was a continuous cry of "question." . \ ; At 11:56, Hon! T. W. Crothers came in and his entrance was made the occasion for a demonstration. Mr. Carvell put down his notes, opened his deSk and projluced a book ,of. the rules of tiie hd'i*. "I wish to call your attention, Mr. Chairman, to nilp number five, which says it is the "dlity of the speaker topreserve' order and decorum in- the house ; also rule 13, which siys that the rules of the house shall be ob-served in committee of the whole house. I apply to you,' Mr., Chair-mah, for protection."; . "Do the rules, apply to the Conservative party ?" asked Mr. Lemieux. "I have not been trifling with the 'house. I have been showing that the figures submitted by tho prime minister-are absolute nonsense. I am entitled to the protection of the, chair and the protection of the house." "I am doing tho best I can,"- said Deputy Speaker Blondin, wlio was in the chair. ' . "I don't think you are," retorted Mr. Carvell._ At this point Premier -Borden rose and said: "Does the Hon. Gentleman want to continue jon Sunday V Mr. Carvell said that he did not. Mr.. Borden said he would move that tlie committee rise and., report progress. ' - "Not much progress," shouted opposition members. Speaker Sproule tlien took the chair, the committee rose and a minute later the house was adjourned. EXPERIMENTAL FARM'S WORK TURKEY'S SUN ALMOST SET The shaded, or lighter, dark'portion of the map shows all that wlll-reirialn of Turkey If the latest'terms of the allies are accepted, vyhlchseems fo be likely. The black portion.' Is' .that which Turkey will lose,-together with three hundred million dollarsIndemnity, '  (By W. C. McKIllloan, Supt.) Over twenty acres have been devoU ed to the'cultural plots. They are one-fortieth acre size, and each experiment Is operated on a different Bet of plots. A systein of rotation Is followed on'each experiment, so that the requlreh number of plots a're ready to carry on the work each year. These plots have been^establlshed with a view .to gain some Information as to the methods of cultivation likely to give the best results along, the line of conservation of moisture, conservation and Increase of soil _ fertility," and thB\eradloatlon of weeds. The preparatory work 'was done on these plots In 1911, and results have been obtained In 1912. ; Owing, however, to- the fact that one year's, experimental work counts for so very little. In. establlsh'lng a procedure which might be adopted on the average farm, and to the large amount of space a full report would occupy. It la not considered advisable to quote figures at the present rtime. A',tew conclusions that 'this year's work have borne out might, however, be given:: 1. That tiloughlng, summer'fallow In hay gave' greater yields per acre than the,summer fallow ploughed'later In the season. 2. That ploughing down large quantities of' green crops for manure-did Pe August a TORONTP. not Inoreaae the yield as did well rotted birnyard manure. > 3.,, That �x second ploughing of summer fallow in Septemberdtdnotr Increase the yield.' � _ 4. Th'at discing in the fall or In the spring gave as large returns as did ploughing but faioreased. the mimberr of weeds. 5. That burning -the stubble.^without further cultivation decreased the yield and Inorea'sed the amount of weeds. '6; That-seeding t-ffd-Sjiuches - deep: gave larger yields than shallower or deeper seeding. MACKENZIE KINGf FOR 'NORTH YORK Newmarket, ,Ont.,' March dr-^pn.\ W.
