At the present time Mr. Jacobs said there was no bankruptcy'net in" the Dominion, in that respect Canacu ififfered from j any other civilized country. The Mlf proposed to "put Canada into line with other countries. The main purpose of the bill, Mr. Jacobs explained, was to see that the debtor could obtain a discharge from his creditors.

In reply the minister of agriculture said it was thcPduty of the local officials charged with the administration of justice through the respective attorney-generals to deal with breaches of the law. If any breach of the regulations were brought to the notice of the food board they would be dealt with, if necessary, by cancellation of the license to do business. Mr. Kay asked if any order had been passed by Mr. McGregor prohibiting or restricting the shipment The arrangement was expected to continue. Mr. Crerar added, as long as it would facilitate the distribution of feed at a minimum cost and tend to reduce transportation difficulties. The.Food Board Speaking in support of his motion for a copy of the orders in council, creating tie Canada Food Board and all correspondence with respect to it. Sir Wilfrid Laurler said that the statements of the premier yesterday re-gtrding the battle on the western front indicated, that thts~ is going to be a very long war. If this battle should prove disastrous to the allies and' tha Cermans should enter Paris it would not end the war.

Sir Wllfrll said that prices were soaring price was simply the usual soarlug price �wns simply the Usual one ot supply and demand, ho would have nothing to say. But these excessive prices were largely due to the hoarding of food by companies. The Canada Food Board, said Sir Wilfrid, had done nothing ot a drastic character to bring down food prices or conserve the supply and very_ little effective work had been done by Uie organization. To tho crodtt of Mr. Hnnna. it should" be said that he had been paid nothing but he had surrounded himself with nn expensive staff, members of which were paid salaries ot $4500 a year. With regard to high salaried officials. Sir Wilfrid said ho' was unable to find anything designating their duties. Most Expensive After the resignation ot Mr.' Hanna a reOTganliatlou had taken place In the Canada Food -Hoard which had proved most expensive to the country. Sir Wilfrid said that salaries on tho food board would cost approximately $200,000 a year. This, he said, "was extravagant. The board as re-constituted consisted ot a director of food conservation, a director of food production and a director of agricultural Jabor. These positions were hold respectively by Mr. Thompson, Hon. C. A. Dunning and J. D. McGregor, but in no case (had their powers or duties been defined. Mr. Dunning had purchased one thousand farm tractors. Sir Wilfrid commended this action but asserted When yon find a printer who can produce results, ask just two questions: Dqes he know costs? Is he honest? If so he* will not take advantage of you nor allow you to take advantage of him. Then givq him your business oft the basis of Confidence. -,--j----. ;----:-' The Herald Job Department Sir, Your Spring Haberdashery is Ready for Selection THe man who realizes the important part the Haberdashery plays in tuning up his appearance will rejoice in this announcement of the completion of our spring displays, the new lines areftruly delightful for their distinctiveness, diversity, unexcelled qualities and for the way we've priced them.

B. 315 5th St. South that, to say the least, the action taken by the board had been slipshod. Foster Replies Sir George Foster, minister of trade and commerce, said that the direction of the Canada Food Board was really under Hon. N. WVRowell, president of the privy council who unfortunately was unable to bb present. He expressed the hope Uiat the war would not continue so long, as Sir Wilfrid feared it would and said ho could not agree .with the leader of the opposition in his opinion as to the causes for high prices. In this connection. Sir (Jeorge emphasized transportation difficulties. "There is trouble enough in the country," Sir George proceeded, "with the burdens we are bearing without giving currency to an opinion throughout the country, that increased prices are largely due to the fact that there are soulless speculators and hoarders doing their work of holding back necessary supplies. "To a certain extent holding back has taken placq and will take place under the best,of systems. But I make the, assertion that it has not been a large factor by any means in cost."  The first duty of the food controller was to control food, to see that in the first place no food was wasted; second, to see that the most economical methods were employed in Us use. Regarding the salaries paid tho food controller's staff, Sir George urged that'the character of the work demanded that "you have captains ot organization fitted to get facts and to marshal them and to arrange them along 'effective lines." He outlined the licensing system adopted which he said had been extended over the whole Dominion.- Mr. Devlin painted a dark picture of the food situation in Great Britain. "Judging by the remarks mado by Sir George' Foster," | ho said, "this was the most ineffective - government we have had in ',this country since confederation." ' \ . "When the minister of agriculture received a members deputation in Ottawa some time ago, tho chief Idea he had presented to them was the necessity of securing more labor." T. A.. Crerar said that Mr. ifevlln's speech had heen chiefly confined to fault finding. If expenditure was to bo cut out the food control board would have to be abolished. Regulation, 'he said, was a now thing for Canada arid people do "not readily b'o-com6 ad justed, to the new condition's. Referring to Sir �Wilfrid Latirler's cri-tleism of the cost of the food control board, Mr. Crerar said tluft" in'the. United States .five million\clollars had beoii_Yoted for this work. Sir Wilfrid had "criticized an expenditure of $200,-000. Sir Wilfrid: "For salaries alone." Mr, Crerar replied, that- the work was heavy and it was necessary to have a capable staff.
