Mr. FOSTEK (North Toronto).

And it has been carried on in that way because supposed to be contrary to the provisions of the Grain Act.

In no case, whether in a terminal elevator in the western inspection division or in a 'public elevator in the eastern inspection division, shall grain of different grades he mixed together while in store.

Now this is subsection 8 of section 126 and it refers to a terminal elevator. Well the hospital elevator is a terminal elevator.

Mr. OLIVER.

When you read subsection 3 of section 124, which governs the action of a hospital elevator, in my reading it would permit of grain being mixed as a necessity of the operation of the elevator.

That seems to me to refer to the shipping out of the elevator.

Mr. OLIVER.

Will the minister say specifically that it is the intention to prevent the mixing of sound grain with unsound grain in the hospital elevator?

That is prohibited to my mind at the present time.

Section as amended, agreed to.

Mr. FOSTER North Toronto). Now

clause 2, the interpretation clause, will have to be amended in order to bring it into accord:

' Hospital elevator ' includes every elevator or warehouse situated at a terminal point-

I move to amend that by striking out the words, ' situated at ia terminal point.'

Section as amended, agreed to.

Now

come back to section 92 which, alter the amendment in section 124 needs to be amended also. I propose to drop the words from the beginning to the end of the word ' elevators ' in the seventh line and commence the iseetion with the words:

All grain shipped

Then drop the words:

For eastern points.

The rest of the section remains. I think that makes still more clear the point we spoke of a moment ago.

Mr. OLIVER.

While you are on this section there is a case which has 'been brought to our attention by wire, and perhaps the minister would not object to considering it in connection with section 91, at least I think that is where -it would properly come in. The telegram to which I refer is as follows:

Car 142982 loaded with wheat was inspected at Winnipeg, February 8, and unloaded at Fort William February 12. Grade lowered two grades causing loss of 20 cents per bushel to shipper without notifying shipper or inspection department at Winnipeg of such change. Grain Act should provide some protection in such cases and shippers be given an opportunity to dispose of grain before identity is lost.

I am informed that that occurred from mistake. The Canadian Pacific railway clerk made it No. 6 instead of No. 4, but the error was detected and the Canadian Pacific railway has arranged the matter.

Mr. OLIVER.

I do not wish to delay the committee, but I thought it might be desirable to make such provision as is suggested in this telegram, that in such case the car should be held for some portion of time, the shipper should be notified so that he might make other disposition of the car before the identity of the grain was lost.

I am informed that has always been done, and the grain either turned into a special bin or some other provision made for it.

Then the identity of the carload is preserved until the question is settled?
