WSen tha bit last discussed, W. D.

Crerar, leader of tha Progressives, "and-you cannot have discrimination in the franchise and keep the honor of the country clear." Gullirlo. Defends It To the criticism, Hon. Hugh Guth- rle, solicitor-general, replied that tha clause was not discriminatory. It was not a disenfranchising clause, but an enabling clause with certain wise re- strictions. Tho Euler amendment was lost, 7D to 68, a government majority of 20. Amendments proposed hy the solici- tor-general to give tho vote to women of alien enemy birth nalurallzcd by marriage were carried. Fred Pardee, West Lamblon, had an amendment to modify effect of the Naturaliza- tion Act, so far as the right !o voto Is concerned. Under that act, an enemy alien not already naturalized, cannot secure a naturalization cerlifl- cato for ten years after the proclama- tion of peace. Mr. Pardee's amend- ment would enable such aliens resi- lient In Canada, prior to 1914, lo se- cure certificates for the purpose of enfranchisement providing they have Iho other necessary qualifications for an elector. Tho clause finally went to a vole and passed tho committee stage by a vote of 39 for and 26 against. The bill was reported through com- mltteo stago. On request of tho op- position, for. which Lucien Cannon. spoke, third reading was proposed. Eeedlag week of the season and nun dreds o( thousands of acres havo been iown. Practically every acre seeded so far has been-wheat, Ihough some 'armers are reported to have sown a few acres oats before any other crop In order to insure a supply ol early oats for harvest operations. The land dried much .more qulcily on top otter the .storm 3f May 1 than aad been expected, with, tha result that in most [farts of [the south the farmers have been busy seeding since last Tuesday noon. The- result Is that, with long the' wheat has gone in amazingly fast. The Noble Foundation, on Friday last broke all records by seeding acres, SCO oh their farms at Nobleford and 900 on tho Cameron ranch.' "West of Macleod, south -.ot.

Unoffi- cial early reports indicate that the acreage will be about 15 per cent, leas than last year, but the weather from now o.i for the nest month will de- cide that question.

Borden's Return Cause On tills point, whiic no oftlclal an- nouncement is to hand, Ii Is under- stood that the .main cause of postpone- ment. Is tho-arrival of Sir Robert dcn -tomorrow.. Following a five- months' holiday, Sir Robert Borden would in'tho ordinary course have reached Ottawa about a couple o( hours or so before the finance ruin- istei- presented his proposals to the house. In such an event. Sir Robert would have then been unabie to give complete'study.-to the full details; and It is principally to enable him to give" such before the budget is pro seated fo the'.hduse that tho decision to postpone has been reached.
