Mr. SALES:

Because these -men owning

fifty per cent of the wheat in western Canada have joined themselves together in order to evolve a new method of marketing grain, called the "pool" method. They have rented their own elevators and they want to market their own grain so far as they can. This gives them the right to say where their grain shall go. We do not ask that if a farmer sends his grain to Timbuctoo, as the hon. member for Marquette said, the elevator shall guarantee grade or weight. But when the grain goes to a place at which a government weighmaster is in charge of the situation, and the grain i3 graded as going through Winnipeg, I do not see why it should not be accepted.

Mr. SALES:

I load my grain over the

platform, and the provisions of this act as it is now I think are in the best interest of the farmer. If we change this provision, we are going to slow up the whole movement of grain. Like my hon. friend (Mr. Gould) I have never found the railway trouble me very much about demurrage. That is my experience. As for the man who lives far away, he will be hauling grain at the very time when he will be able to get forty-eight hours for loading. I am going to support the clause as it stands.

Mr. SALES:

If the man says he wants the grain to go to the terminal elevator at Fort William the country elevator is relieved of further liability for the grades and weights. That is the point.
