'I ^11.: .= M'ih ^HElirPEcMN\bF WEEDS, 'QuteRINTENDENT \yiLSON'S SUGGESTION that weed in-specters should not be resident in the district where they are inspecting is directly in accord, with a view expressed by The :'irieraW on several occasions during the past few years. We be-jUeve the strictest and most impairtialenforcenient of the law 'will come from an official living outside the district in wliich he is inspecting. d ; A local man is onlj' human when he acts leniently with a| ; jieighbor or a friend. It is tliis leniency which is allowing the � �weed pest to spread. What is urgent and necessary is strict j  ?enf orcein en t, and this can be best, brought about byjheoperation r 'of the act beinj? placed".iu'the h^^pTim apd disinterested ' men to enforce. C ^ ILIJNOIS FEELS IT TOO WHO SAID this money stringency of 1913 was common to one cmmlry? if anybody did say so, read Uiis and be convinced from a Chicago paper: i "Springfleld, III.. August 1.- (Special)--lllinois is I badly bent, according to information that came out of the state treasiirer's otJice today. : It iS" a foregone conclusion that state bills will go unpaid for several months and politicians are skirmishing about to, llnd some good reason for the present condition of finances," So we had belter cheer up. We are as well off here as any place. In the west we depend almost wholly iipon agriculture fori our development and prosperity. The crop this fall promises I to be big and its financial results will do much to start money \ moving more freely again. To be sure of continued development; and prosperity we must have more people, on the land. Cities, and towns cannot grow without the land being occupied and i tilled. Too many people have bec'ti living oh?the boom spirit. ! We must get down to a solid basis, and this year's lesson will serve to bring about an improvement in general conditions. � 'The Canadian," Arthur Hawkes'S paper,;(very well says: "We need thousands and thousands of people on the Iqnd, in .\lberta as well as in other^pif^iNdnces. Any talk about relieving money striniffltf^tll^'^foSr^^^^ that truth is wide of the mark. To the land! is the cry of the true economist. ,Tl:^ere's room for milhons more. Maybe spme of us who are writing 'millions for Alberta' ought to be out with a fiitchfork instead of with a pen.'* What Others Think ; CHEER UP-THE WAR IS OVER ^ T'HE BALKAN WAR is over. For how- long none can tell, but it would appear that;thea^little. nations have had tlieir stom-jBciiS': full- M -J>atfl�s-^nd :wull4' bow, : settle down to, the arts of \{'j, ,3l�une ^flor^.thji .pioney, stringency has been placed on the "'J'WfT., TJhe close of the war ought to bring relief. We have the *'jm'ffilsrity of the "Financial Post" of Toronto, .which says: "If the Balkan war is speedily brought to a close, ~: ks now seems reasonably probable, there should, within r a few weeks, be sonae betterment in the sentiment all �I over Europe, and consequenUy in Canada's chief mar-y ket, London. If that is so; the Canadian banks could ' probably see their way to-be-more generous in their accommodation before very long. The crop is, more. -V or less a paradox. This year's Canadian crop gives ^ every promise of being good. If it^iirere not good nioney fv would be tight, because everybody would be afraid, and money would be hoarded by the banks 4f not by indi-V vlduala. The crops being g|ood, however; require a lot  >v of'money to move them, whibh..of course, has its effect ' '-� on the money majiets. In riiort, the result is that this '" year's good, crop will imdoubtedly tend to make the * money market even tighter, preliminary to the loosen-. ing which will follow as a result of the increase in the country's wealth."

It is certainly a bift asset to the city to have ignorant of military matters rather exceeded the limit of truthfulness. Col.

The/Increased value of $62,460 was created.-by:.the people of Saskatoon, hut under our laws it belonged to the policsmtm, who, though he^had no doiiht done his duty zealously' in the JEroisen .north, had done nothing to increase the value of laud,in the Saskatchewan city. In the same way land yulues arriountliig to many, .millions of dollars have been created by the! increase'in population in cltlesi towns,.' villages and prairie settle m^nts throughout Canada, and it all goes into private pockets. The taxation of land values would plage this immense fund, created by the public at large, into i the public treasury, to be used for .education, public, improvements, fire and.police jirotectlbn and -^W other functions of government. Would this not be a better means of raising public revenues than tuxing the food, .clothing and homes of the people? 11 But Ah, Neyt Moriiingl "Brown says he  arlhks because drives, away-his ".troubles;".- "He exchanges one ibdd'for ahMiier, so to speak," '.

The conquering of the air is costing heavily in human sacrifice, but it is doubtful if any great achievement is ever reached without sacrifice. The Balkan states have decided to quit, fighting. Thus vanishes the alleged big reason for the money .stringency. The drowning at Henderson Lake was a most regrettable mishap, but it in no way demonstrated lhat the 'city's play-spot is dangerous. The drowning removed a most esjtimable young man, and general sympathy is expressed for his family. He was the victim of exceptional conditions which occasioiially arise, arid the. occurreilce has no bearing on the slifl^ty of the lake as a place; of pleasure. jind money to public service. The outspoken views of a man like Supt. Wilson should help | stiffen the backs of weed inspectors and encourage jthemrin .doing | their full dutj' irrespective of local considerations. When a j man accepts a commission he should deliver the goods. ;
