The shark measured about ten met- ers (about thirty feetV in length, and judging from the growth on his body lived probably hundreds of years, and had likely visited every sea in the world. The largest be on record measured nine meters long, and was caught on the coast of California sev- eral years ago. The cadets are proud of holding the distinction of hav ing captured the largest shark on Journel.

(Continued from front claims There is Unrest The address given by President Bowen on behalf of the eight thous- and, foreshadowed the resolutions. It declared in part: "While recognizing the duty we" owe as we believe you have our best interests at heart, we also have a -duty to ourselves. We are face to face with a condition of affairs which should never exist, a condition of affairs that is not con- ducive to the development of the nat- ural resources or to the well being of the country." Chief among the un- satisfactory things were conditions of meat, trade, condition of grain trade, railway act and lack of co-operative legislation. It has been said by super- ficial students that the -need of the country is more population, but this is only true in part, while rural popula- tion is, we believe, truly loyal, yet a spirit of unrest exists that is not -con- ducive to the growth, of loyalty. It is the duty of the government to patronize the people not by unjust tariff laws, but by removal of mon- opolistic conditions -which have grown up in the western country, fostered 'by -some unjust laws and by a dozen other laws. We ask the gov- ernment to give us their protection, (but not by such methods as bonuses protective tariffs." In a lengthy argument against protection the farm- ers gave figures to show that they were now paying taxes on larger pro- portion of their imports than fifteen years ago. In this respect the tariff seems to have progressed backwards. Frankly, they said, during the' elec- tion of 1S96 their chief hope was the gradual passing from protection to free trade; now they thought it was time to take decided steps, and from his knowledge of the province he could safely assert that such steps would 'be welcomed with enthusiasm. Eulogizing the preference with Great Britain, yet they thought there must be a flaw somewhere as average duty on British dutiable goods imported in 1909 was a little over 25 per cent and we are unable to show to the world that has got superiority in the class of its wheat through, foreign matter added and the fact that farm- ers were graded higher than elevator interests. It was estimated that there was total injury and unjust tax over three million dollars for shipments made eastward from the provinces and pocketed by the elevator interests. We believe that farmers are pay- ing yearly by indirect taxes enough on season's crop to purchase the ter- minal facilities. Pacific terminals were also dealt with by the farmers., pointing out that 95 per cent of- all grain inspected at Calgary was for western points. Vancouver offered special inducements, but they believe the only way is government owner ship. Apropos of railway amendments, attention was drawn to ruling of the commission, compelling companies to construct fences as soon as construc- tion work was completed and asking that it be enforced. It was said that appeal was made for co-operative leg- islation to prevent the tyranny of trusts. In connection-with the chilled meat problem, the farmers observed that some of the convicted United States firms are already doing -busi- ness in our country and apparently are usins same methods, and indica- tions -are that Canadian firms will fol- low suit. Eventually they will im- poverish the whole country through elimination of meat for export pur- poses. We view with alarm that farmers are considering changing from stock and mixed farming to ex- clusive grain raising. This can only be carried on for a limited time with-, out depletion of soil. Where now exists discouraged and disheartened feeling among live stock breeders there -would spring up lively interest if government gives promise a good reliable and steady market for good reliable -and steady market for dulled meat export business.

They left on this afternoon's local for Medicine Hat where they will visit the groom's brother before [returning to Macleod where they will reside. On Tuesday, Aug.

While Great i nn Britain had preference America had the advantage, taking" into account charges of wholesale and retail mid- dlemen. The duty on woolen goods, for instance, was more than fifty per cent. We compute that for every dollar of duty going into revenue about three dollars are taken out of the pockets of the people. This was an enormous burden and the most in- tolerable aspect was that the tariff, taxing heavily the necessaries of life, fell heaviest on the poorest Canada's tariff on farm produce was useless, not because prohibitive, (but because the prices in America were higher on man- ufactured goods. The tariff was alive and farmers had to pay duty and en- hanced prices. There was equally lengthy appear for leading men will have no confidence in the present state.

POLES SETTLING IN ARGENTINA. Consul General R. M. Bartlenian, of Buenos Aires, notes that the governor of the territory of Misiones, has just reported that the colonies of San Jose, Apostoles and Azara, on the upper Uruguay river, which are in- habited iby Polish colonists, white their crops of black tobacco find a ready market at Concepcion del Ur- uguay, are greatly 'by a plague of ants. Many of over six feet high, and they have multiplied so in the last year as to render cul- tivation in some districts nearly im- possible. The colonists now peti- tion the government to -carry out the presidential decree of July 27, 1909, ordering "all the ants' -nests to be de- stroyed. The Poles appear to make excel- lent colonists in this remote region. They "have a municipal council, a po- lice department, a justice of the peace, and a complete school system.
