Politics promise to be muddled ia Saskatchewan when-the nest Federal general election comes along. The farmers promise to be the' chief op- ponents of the present government. While the Saskatchewan govcrnmeat Is Liberal, there are indications that inost of its members will support the farmers In the Federal campaign. Speaking at Weyburn the other day, (he new .minister ot agriculture, Hon. ,C. Al. Hamilton, announced that he up with the new National Policy, and support the candidates ad- vocating it. Of course farmer leaders like Hon. Geo. Langley and Hon. C. A. Dunning, members of the same gov- ernment, will be sure to do likewise..

On the very day that Superintend fent Thomas Longworth. of the govern "ment labor bureau returned from "tour of the south country and issuec an appeal to the farmers of Southern 'Alberta to lose no time in stating the I requirements of harvest hands, a 'dispatch came, over the leased win '.to the Herald from Toronto statlni that Ontario farmers were threatenei With heavy losses in their crops owing la inability to secure help in the bar JrC5t fields. the farmers of Southern Alberta are wise therefore, they will heed Mr warning without fiela and Gtate their requirements thi yeek.

It Is often offered .as an argument favor of Irrigation that it-will get d of the big farms and enable small nns, intensively cultivated, to be perated with profit. It has never been suggested that ntario was a province of large rms down to even smaller' size, as average size. We now find nrgii- ents being advanced lor cutting the rms down to even smaller size. As instance the' following from the enfrew. Mercury published In a pure- agricultural district: t Is a well known fact that the :rms of Canada do not produce up i their The average yield er acre in this country is the lowest the American continent. Kurop- au countries lead Canada, tpo, in this egard. Belgium, for example, before he war supported A population' from s own home products ten times reater than that of Canada per quare mile. In Belgium small farms nd intensive cultivation explain the tuation. There must bo some other xplanation than those so frequently uoted for the trend of population om country districts to towns and ities. One reason is that too much apital is required to successfully arry on tie business of farming. nhe farms are too large. Let a man purchase a modern farm hi On- ario with a smalV iiayment down and e will Be obliged to make it produce o capacily in order to meet his 'ayrnents. This is impossible under iresent labor conditions. H tbe farms f Ontario were smaller, say tracts f .50 acres, mere people wouhi '0 able and willing to invest In land, nd .all the necessary work would be lerformfid by nonie labor. Tlest of aril he country districts would become more thickly settled by a prosperous ind contented people. Tho true com- munity spirit could be cultivated. 5 farmer has reason fo complain as o the system of taxation by which he s penalized by tho assessor for mak- ng Improvements in-the appearance ri his property. There are Improved arms in Ontario today that the own- ers would rind it nest to impossible o sell except to some city man o! wealth who wished to take up agri culture as a fad. The taxes on the property are so high that no l.ona fide 'armer could hope to pay for the 1am and at the same time carry the bur den of taxation." The .viewpoints contained in above will certainly Intprest Ihe ad. vocates of the smaller slze'd farms In i evacuated Kovcl and are withdrawing to the line of the Bug.river.
