S.UO NO REASON FOR B. C. TO GRUMBLE. The Vancouver Sun is put out be- cause British Columblia is only left -with one Cabinet-Minister at Ottawa. It forgets tint untfl Dr. Tolmie was ap- pointed minister of agriculture a year 'ago, it never had more than one and there were occasions in recent "years when It did not have a single representative. When Dr. Tolmie be- came, a.minister through Hon. T. A. Crerar's retirement, ManlloBa left yriih one representative and that is all that it has today. Saskatchewan never Dad a cabinet minister at Ot- "tawa until 191T. Brillsh Columbia, therefore, has no reason_to'.gr'umole.

The Dominion government must assume the responsibility, for a settle- ment'will never come_from confer- ences' between the provinces. Exper- ience has proven that the eastern provinces won't agree to z retuip of the natural resources to the western provinces, unless a better financial arrangement is made with them. H the financial terms with the eastern provinces are not satisfactory, lei them put the matter bafore the Do- minion, but it should be done wholly apart from the question of natural resources.' No government can ex pect a conference of tne provinces to settle that question. Dominion alone can seltle it fcy handing over tie-resources and then making, on their own responsibility, an adjust-i inent with the other -provinces, if that IE necessary. RECLAMATION IN THE UNITED STATES. Reclamation of dry lands by the use of water going to waste is not over- looked in'the platforms ot the great political'parlies of the United Stales. There Is a real recognition of the im portance and -necessity for reclama- lipn, in. the.jjnlled Sates that .it not so evident, lii Canada, where govern- ments seerri-more anxious-to shirk their responsibilities to assume them, and so-called statesmen suggest the removal of settlers from districts where occasional crop failures occur, without-maiing a business-like, tempt-to ieep them .-where they, are y- using the means "Providence has provided, water going to .waste in our rivers. Jast to convey to our people the triiited Slates par Lies on reclamation, we quote the planks in their platforms on this question: DEMOCRATIC 'We favor ample appropriations to: the continuation and extension of thi great work of home building and' in teraal improvement along the samt general lines, to the end that all prac tlcal projects shall be' built, am waters now running- to waste sha! tie made to provide homes and add t ihe food supply, power resources, and taxable property, with the Govern- ment ultimately reimbursed for the sa-.v Bassoff, the bandit was between the Hour and feed store and the bank, standing, facing east.

In fact the outlook Is good that fie Coaldale district will yet' approach the Twin Falls total provided the prices for farm comnlod- itles were to remain as high aa they i are at present. Tho highest gross returns per acre on the Twin Falls project came from tho orchards. This was an enormous figure. Ot course Southern Alberta cannot consider getting into the' orchard class. But outside the fruit growing, which accounted for only acres of tho total therfr was nothing produced on the Idaho land which cjinnot he produce jusl as successfully or even more BO on our own irrigated tract.
