Mr. DONNELLY:

There is a board of grain commissioners, with an assistant board of grain commissioners in each of the western provinces. I imagine these travelling expenses are the expenses of these grain commissioners and assistant grain commissioners in the course of their duty in the different parts of the country. A lot of it would be railway fares. I am inclined to think a larger proportion is represented by railway fares than by the cost of driving cars.

Mr. DONNELLY:

There is no doubt that the Russian thistle came to the United States first, and from there it spread into the southern part of western Canada which I have the honour to represent. Russian thistle grows very thickly in dry weather; it prevents soil drifting and is very helpful in that respect. In wet weather it does not grow to any size at all. It does not interfere with crops; it is not injurious in any way, and we rather favour it because it helps in dry weather and can be used to a certain extent for feed.
