A large acrsage of fall rye isj also noticed in some parts. About Maple Creek farm th?re are some lO.O&O acres ot this crop this year. Mistake. ' Supt.

Thero was two alternatives, he .said, either parliament must prologue not later than Saturday, the olt^htecnth, or thero must be an adjoui'nment till August 1, Thero was no desire to curtail discussion, but unless nroiogation could lake place by the 18tl� it would bo necessary for raenibeis to come back. Referring to reports which had appeared in the press. Sir Sam asked, it it was the intention of the prime minister to proceed overseas with the other members of the (-.ibinet. He wouU like to know for what inirposo ministers were going there and wiiy the business should be held up. The statement that the prime minister was not going. Sir Sam said, had appeared in the prime minister's personal organ, the Ottawa jlournal. /'AVill Attend Sir Robert repK^l that it was hjs intention to attend an Imperial war conference and he believed that ministers from other parts of tho Empire i iiad already started. Correspondence so far that was not of a confidential nalnra'would be brought down and it was the Intention of the prime minister to be present. Sir Robert further challenged the statement that the newspaper was "his personal organ." Sir Sara was proceeiiing with further remarks when he was called to oiMder by the speaker. As Sir Sam did not immediately take his seat v.hen the speaker rose, the .speaker called him to order-tegain. "The honorable gentleman must be amenable to the rules of the house," declaied the speaker. "He is not in oi'dfr in entering into a discussion." Sir_^ Sam arose again and declared that ho had been cb.iTgcd with mnk-liig a .Mlatoment which was not true and that ho was rising to a question dr privilege. "'I'he point I want to gin is thill," Sir Saitt went on. "la Cuu- ada not going--" Called to Order 'Tho honorable gdntlcmun is out ot order," the spnakor repented. "! am imt out ofS'order," retorted Sir Sam. "Tho honorable gentleman is not in order," persisted tho speaker, as Sir Sain remained on IUb feet, "I purpose to ask the oueslion." Sii-Sam continued, "with all due regard to the chloroform that is being applied here." "Order, or'dor," the speaker broke in again. "I must ask the honorable gentleman to rlisuine his seal." > As *lr Sam ant down the speaker continued: "If by using tho word-chloroform the' honorable gentleman Ir referring to the chair,, I must ask him to retract tho statemiuil." Sir Sam was contlnuinK w^Ui his remarks when the speaker iifcaTu interrupted "it the honorable gentleman is using the word chloroform In referring to the chair, I muBt ask him to withdraw his statement." "I will not withdraw the statement," Sir Sam hintedly replied. The speaker: "If tho hoiiorublo gentleman persisto, 1 shall name him." '"I wllljiot withdraw the statement," Sir Sam ""repented. At this point the prime minister interposed with the remark, that there was no intention of charging Sir Sam Hughes with having stated an untruth and Sir Sam replied that he accepted tho expld^iatlon. Sir Sam then went on: Called Again "It is not the prime minister's intention to discuEs witii this house and the country the questions wliich arc going to arise over there, as to the future of this country, in regard to the Empire." "Order, order," came from the speaker again. Once more Sir Sam was attempting to proceed with his remarks when the speaker cnlled him t'6 order,. "If," said the speaker, "tho honorable gen-tinman does not make himself amon-nble to tlic constlttitcd autliorlty of � he ehair, I shall be conipollod to take proper measures to hoc that he does," The speaker added that Sir Sam was not in order in nttompting to make a Btatemenl at this juncture. Sir Sam: "I luive to ask tho prime minister a question and I purpose to ask him that question: ia It his l�-tf-ntlon to bring before tho house the (iuos�tioii--" Sii Robert Borden: "If the honor-abl' gcniloman will put his qunstlou on tliti order paper it will bo aniiwcr-ed " . :  And the' house resumed the debate on the budget.
