Mr. SCHAFFNER:

I do not know about that $3,000,000. The hon. gentleman will have to have some means of knowing the amount of wheat that was sold during August, and I am not in a position to contradict what he says, or to question his statement that $3,000,000 were lost, but I have extreme doubt as to whether any such amount was lost. After considerable agitation by some of us-not all on one side of the House-we got free wheat. Wheat went over to the United States. Whatever that market may be worth, we got it anyway, and the Government saw fit to give us free wheat. After the United States became our ally by going into this war, it was up to this Government to see that the same price was fixed on this side as they were getting on the other side. Further than that, the Government had no right to fix the price of wheat without fixing the price of flour. There is nothing coming to the millers of this country. If there is any class of men in Canada that has done the farmer, and done the people of the country, it is the miller. I do not refer to the small miller, but to the large _ millers of this country. They have been absolutely soulless, in my opinion. If I had anything to do with the Government. I would see that

[Mr. Oliver.1

the millers were brought to time, and I say that when the Government permits wheat to go to the United States free, they should not permit flour to go to that country.
