The McMaster measure, Intending to disallow Cabinet Ministers from sitting as directors of private corpor- ations, went down to signal defeat. In the circumstances it was not a sur- prise. The measure carried with it. in what it sought to effect, the prin- ciple conveyed in the oil-quoted pas- Ease borrowed from Shakespeare, that Caesar's wife should be above' sus- picion. In this respect the incentive behind it can bo said to be a com- mendable one but one which was not altogether practical even though it may be said to be desirable. The burden of the argument against the measure was that, in the matter of holding directorates as it applied was the real fritwid of and few, if any, muuufucturers liud stiftVml in tlioir protiu because of diminished output. Plenty the friend of the workman. Diminished production increased bis burdens and reduced tho purchasing power ot his wages. By somo it was alleged that tho cotton operatives in Lancashire were out of a job because they produced too much. That was not UsF reason. They were out because oC the high prices of their products and low purchasing power ot would-be buyers. Ho believed that it would enormous- ly help trado it -wages for a period could be stabilized and an clement of certainty introduced into commercial transactions. Two things were essen- tial If the better spirit were to pre- vail. employers must abandon the practice of yielding ouly to the force of a strike, and on the other hand the workmen should always hon- or a bargain. THE PROPOSED TURNOVER TAX. In thf; falling off of Customs' rev- enue during the last two months, and in the abolition of the Luxury Tax, it is well understood that the Minister of Finance will have to seek for new sources of revenue.

Il created something of a quandary, and no doubt helped to make the questlou solve it self in the result of the adverse vote against the measure. While there is something in the principle embodied in the McMaster measure, it must be said that it was expecting too much, in that the assent to it would tend to make the accept- ance of Cabinet positions more of a self-denying ordinance than it prob ably Is, as it relates to certaTn holders of the office. In comparison to Cabinet Ministers in other representative as- semblies, such as the British Parlia- ment, tho Ministers in the Canadian Cabinet are not highly paid. Had the remuneration been on a higher scale there would have been more arsp.i- ment in the measure. The fact has also to be borne in mind that Cabinet positions are after all temporary ones.. As It is there must remain that trust in Cabinet Ministers not to use their office in relation to any particular directorate they may hold. This is as it should be, even though those who voted for the measure con- sidered that they had commendable motives for so doing. not order the movements of his limbs for definite purposes. 6.

UNEMPLOYMENT AND PRODUCTION To the policy of ca'canny, which is a principle advanced and put into practice by certain in the labor in tae belief that restricted produc- tion helps labor, Mr, J. R. Clynes, a figure in labor circles in Great Britain, supplies a very rational ans- wer. It wag in a speech given not long ago at a luncheon held by the Higher Production Council, What Mr. Clynes said, the wisdom it contains, is well worthy of the most careful con- sideration. Under the existing system of wealth production he mentioned there was the defect of great groups of idle workmen side by side with the grow- goods and wealth, in some quarters ing need for more It was suggested amongst employers that they would be driven to seek a remedy for the diffi- culties that existed In the direction of reducing wages. As things were that .would be a ruinous step to take. At tha same time, if they were not to have reduced wages they could not suffer reduced production. Both, he vas sure, would lead towards greater trouble. There was no doubt that 1920 order to provide revenue with which to carry on the affairs of the country.

The New Amendment I. E. Pedlow who had moved an amendment to Hon. Mr. Smith's mo- tion that the government should strongly protest against the reasons assigned by the British government for maintaining the embargo said he would support tbe sub-amendment which was moved by Dr. H. Steele, ot Perth. original resolution was that it wma sot in the interests of Canada that the embargo should be removed by Great Britain. The sub- amendment received generous support from speakers on both sides of the chamber. Hon. Arthur Meighen sup- porting It, many people thought and he was not free from the himself, that embargo was really protection for the British cattle In- dustry under another name. How- ever, if the British government wish- ed to protect that country's cattle industry ft should not do so nnder provisions of an embargo which had been enforced thirty-four years ago on the suspicion that one or two ani- mals were diseased.

There were many causes which had tended to create the workmen's Impression of unemploy- ment and production. One was their experience in the past of finding them- selves thrown out of work because they had filled the markets with goods. Another was the suspicion that Increased output would only strength- en the interests ot employers and add to the of the capitalist class. Whether right or wrong, these im- pressions ought to be faced frankly. It WM proper for the workers to se- cure safeguards against unemploy- ment against additional output benenttlng employers more than any- one else. But If those safeguards could not be securer! It would still be desirable enormously .to increase the output, because that increase would confer mon heneft upon the working I than upon any other class in tha country. Scarcity did not diminish profits; it the Government must I have revenue and our war debt muGt be met. So we may as well take our medicine and agree upon tbe best form of taxation to answer these de- mands. It is asserted that a turnover tax of one per cent, would yield a tremendous revenue which would en- able the Government to speedily re- duce our war debt. If cuch a tax would produce thh result without cre- ating undue hardship, it deserves con- sideration.

Dr. J. H. Grlsdale, dep- uty minister of agriculture, informed he house committee on agriculture .his morning. Manufacturers objected 0 giving away their trade secrets. Hon. S. F. Tolmie, minister ot ag- riculture, thought the committee should proceed gradually In the mat- er of standardization of machinery larts rather than attempting too much to begin with. Dr. Tolmie referred to his visit to the livestock convention in Texas. American cattlemen there had fav- a heavy tariff against Canadian and Mexican cattle. Or. Tolmie had assured them that Canada would not introduce any halt-baked or ill consid- ered tariff measures against American! cattle. j Referring to the opposition which: tad been levelled at the oleomorgar- manufacture, the minister read Igures which showed that only pounds of margarine had been' consumed since permits had been ;ranted for ita manufacture and sale.

From an economic viewpoint, the manufacturers argued the change might Involve gnat alterations in plant equipment.
