Sir Robert further sketched the work of Lord Bcaverbrook as Canadian record officer and the operations of the Canadian records office. Conscription British Subjects On motion for production of a copy of the treaty between Great Britain and the United States, Sir Wilfrid Laurier raised the question of the con-scription of' Hrilislt subjects ip tho United States for military service and American citizens in Canada. The subject, involved, Sir Wilfrid said, was one of very great importance as he understood that the treaty permitted iconacriution on either side of the line. "Of their own subjects/' interposed Sir Itobert. Borden. A Wide Departure Sir Wilfrid went on to say Great Britain and France were as united an they could be but he did not think it would bo thought possible for a recruiting officer 1.0 go to Paris and take any man or for a French officer to go from Paris to London, Tills was a wide departure from tho policy of :li)ll of no truck or trade with, the Yankees. � The Tariff Sir Wilfrid read a statement from the Toronto News to the of feel that .an agreement had been reached with the ministers representing tho. provinces that the tariff would remain in abeyance until after the war. lie asked If it wen- true or not that such an understanding had been arrived at and referred to tho demands in the west for the abolition of duties on agricultural implements, a move which lias the support of Hon. C. A. Dunning, of Saskatchewan, who is in charge of the production branch of the Canada food board. Sir Wilfred quoted from "The mer" of Toronto, an imaginary versation between Mr. Dunning llou. 1\ A. Crerar, in which, the ister of agriculture authorized Dunning to purchase farm tractors and promised him that the duty on the tractors wotijfl be remitted. Speaker Rhodes at. this point expressed the hope that Sir Wilfrid T^puld not press his argument on the tariff too far on this resolution dealing with another matter. The opposition leader said he would not and completed his remarks with further quotations on the subject from the Toronto News to show that there had been an agreement. Not Relevant Sir Robert Borden said that Sir Wilfrid's remarks were not relevant to the motion under discussion. He characterized tho opposition leader's reference to "truck or trade with the Yankees" es an old joke and suggested that. Sir Wilfrid should give it a rest for a time. Sir Robert did not make j any statement Id reply to Sir Wilfrid's ' observations as to the tariff, but explained that the convention between the United States and Canada, details in regard to which have already been made public, would be tabled as soon as ratified by the United States senate, lie observed that the convention probably would bo the basis of a similar agreement between Great Britain and the United States. Amend Lands Act 'Hon. Arthur Melghen introduced �, bill to amend the Dominion Lands Act. He said the bill would not radically change the general provisions of the lands act, but would, in addition to a number of generalities, provide facilities for pre-emption holders to obtain loans on their land, prior to the issue of patents. This proposal was made in a bill introduced last Session which did not receive the approval of parliament. _ Pre-emption Entry Withdrawn Mr. Melghen also made the important announcement that an order-in-council has been passed providing that from now on, the privilege of pre-emption entry on Dominion lanfts is withdrawn. This step has been taken in view of the probable requirement for soldiers' settlement of large areas of Dominion land. In view of this, Mr. Meigbon considered it to be not expedient that pro-emeption and? purchase homestead entries should continue to be granted. Ho further explained th*t the privilege of purchase homestead entry is 'also withdrawn. It is provided that where land toes been reserved for pre-emption entry under the provisions of the Dominion lands regulation for any homestead who is on active military service, such reservation may be continued and upon tho return of such settler he may be permitted to acquire the land reserved as an ordinary purchase at the rate of $3 an acre. The house having disposed of government orders and private members being unready to proceed with motions standing in their names an adjournment was taken until tomorrow.
