At declines of 2 5-S and 2 7-Sc consider- able quantities were picked up by bis nouses. la contrast to the future market, the cash, situation showed relatively strong and there was an excellent de- mand at premiums from 1-3 to Ic bet- tor on Wednesday. The volume turnover was not large, owing to the light offerings, the belief being that bis stocks held at the head of the lakes aro controlled by producers continue to show no inclination to let go at leas than a bushel.

Gives Government Control "Any financial arrangements enter- ed into board such as the issue and sale of bonds by the district. Must receive the approval of the pro- vincial treasurer. In cases, however, where tho provincial guarantee is asked guarantee legislation will pro? vide that the greater part of the pow- ers of the lioard oJ trustees now vest- ed by the general act shall be exer-, cised by the irrigation council, thus giving the .province complete control of the building operations in cases where provincial assistance is given.
