Situation in Canada Turning to (he to.v. tu.itIon in thin-ada. Sir Wilfril saal that prices wer-scarlnt; price was simply the usual soaring price sira,. simply the usual one of supply and e.eiu:-.nil. he would nothing to say. '.''.!' these excessive prices were largely due to the hoarding of food by companies. The Canada Food Hoard, said Sir Wilfrid, had done nothing of a drastic character to bring down food prices or conserve the supply anil very little effective work hud been done by the organisation. To the credit of Mr. Manna, it should be said that he had I been paid nothing but hp had sin- j rounded himself with, an expensive! staff, members of which were paid sal- | a.-ies of $-150(1 a year. With regard to' high salaried officials. 'Sir Wilfrid said , he was unable to find anything designating their duties. | Most Expensive j After the resignation of Mr. llanna a re-orgiinisation had. taken place in 11 the Canada Food Hoard which hail proved most expensive to the country. Sir Wilfrid said that salaries on the food board would cost approximalely S-uO.000 a year. This, he said, was ex.-travagant. , The board as re-constituted consist-! | ed of a director of food conservation,! a director of food production and a di-' rector of agricultural labor. These [ positions were held respectively by j Mr. Thompson, Hon. C. A. Dunning: and .1. D. McGregor, out in no case; had their powers or duti-s been defin-j ed. Mr. Dunning had purchased one; thousand farm tractors. Sir Wilfrid j commended this action but asserted; | Spring laberdaskry election 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.

Sir George Foster, minister of trade and commerce, said thai the direction of the Canada Food Board was really! under Hon. N. W. Rowell. president of tlie privy council who unfortunately, was unable to bb present. He expressed the hope that the war would no: 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 George aiu-phasized 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 inc-sased 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 place 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 footl was wasted; second, to see that the most economical methods were employed in its use. .Regarding the salaries paid the food i controller's staff, Sir George urged that the character of the work demanded that "you luue captains of 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 made by Sir George Poster," he said, "this was the most ineffective government wo have had in this country since confederation." "When the minister of agriculture received a members deputation in Ottawa some time ago, the chief idea he had presented to them was the necessity of securing more labor." T. A. Crerar said that Mr. iJevlin's speech had been chiefly confined to fault finding. If expenditure was to be cut out the footl control board would have to be abolished, Regulation, lie said, was a new thing for Canada and people do not readily become adjusted to the new conditions. Referring to Sir Wilfrid haulier's criticism of the cost of the food control board, .Mr. Crtfrur said that in the rnited States five million ^dollars had been voted for this work. Sir Wilfrid j had criticized an expenditure of ?20U,-000. Sir Wilfrid: "For salaries alone." ?'lr. Crerar replied that ihe work was heavy and it was necessary to have a capable staff.
