WILL ELIMINATE PRICE CUTTING Toronto, Ont., April L',-AVtth the object of eliniinalhig price cuttlns among themselves, forty Independent cannera of Ontario, particularly those whose oulDut is confined to vegetables, have formed a holding company wilh a capital of $100,000, This company willl take tlio output of the several canneries with the object, it is stated, of reducing the expense of marketing, "whj'le preventing the slaughtering ot goods for the purpose of driving any individual cnnncr tout ot the tieUI. ''We have more moisture in Southern -Mherta this year to date, than in any previous similar period for twelve years." This assertion is made by W, 11, Fairfield, superintendent of the Do-minon Experimental farm, where every inch of precipitation is recorded. From the iirsl of .lanuary, up to and includinp; March :ilst, ;L6a inchet; of moisture, in the form of snow and ra n have desftiidod. The nearest this record stands to being e:lipsed, for a corresponding pwiod, was just Un years ago, in 1901, when 2.-l:-i inches of precipitation were recorded. This year, the record statuis over an inch better than the next best year, and far surpasses last >ear, when the crop prospctns were exceed-I in-,ly bright. I Mr. Fairfield slates that if this I rcL'ord holds for the next three months, there v.ill he more moisture in the .soil than ever before in the Iirsl 0 moiith.s of the year. lie considers tliat the prospects at the ) resent time are excellent for h goml crop. He can see no reason why thtre should not be an extra gon! crop, for the amount of moisture in the ground now is sulficient to sprout every fertile seed tiiat is sown, and start it well on toward the summer, I when more rain may be practically 1 banked on. The year 11)14 will have many records ; in fact, has already made pos-.sible the hanging up of a few" in .Southern .Viterta. In it there occurred the lirst ' .March rainstorm for 30 years, which helped materially to swell the precipitation record, the latter being the most potent factor in establishing a cro.) record that promises to make the world gape with v.oniler. The ' mosture will be given every chance to work its marvels, for there it-more land seeded and ready for sce'I-in.j, and better methods employed in its cultivation at this time than ever before.
