Pcesldeat.j. C. Walters, ot the �Trades and Labor-Congress of Canada -wns In tbo'city a* few days ago, and In the course of an Interview with ^"The Herald .*e stated his opinion that price fixing was the one logical method or putting "a stop to lalwr unrest. ........ SInCt ihatr time we have seen that the government has granted the miners an'increase of 25 cents per day to meet the increase in the coat of living, and that, is a'.result,'>tbo. or world would be eliminated. At present, prices Increase in many cases apparently without reason an'd the struggle to make both ends meet increases In proportion. The Food Board deals with tbe question to some extent, but its powers are limited and do not go nearly far enough to meet tbe demands of the situation. The appointment ot a board with plenary powers to fix prices would be hailed by the long-suffering consumer as a sign of that democracy for which the world is enduring such pangs to secure. Whenever a suggestion Is made to make any such move a terrific outcry arlies from those whose interests are threatened that "it cannot be done," and that "the disadvantages ot such a course of action would far outweigh the advantages." The answer to this Is evident: If It can be done in Australia, it can be done inj Canada.

There -\vere twenty-five cars from the city yesterday, and these were joined by eight cars from the Monarch and Nobletord districts. From Monarch the party were taken west around the Moriarch farms, which are flourishing as always, and thence to the west farm ot the Noble Pounda-tton. On the way one or two, fields of wheat were passed which will eaally average from 35 to 40 bushels, and thia is 00 exaggeration. On Mr. Noble's west farm there wa� also a field ot summer tallow wheat on which he expects to' average 40 and some ot it will go 50 without a question. . Here the party were photographed, and also-saw the rod weeder at work, and something of how other schemes In wlilch Mr. Noble is interested, will work out. They also saw several fields ot newly sown fall rye, in which Mr. Noble is a great believer, since It is an enricher ot the soil, harvests earlier than wheat and thus distributes the labor, and in addition is a very valuable crop. White Lake DIatrlct. Going from here, the party went round the White Lake district, and thence over to Nobletord, whore lunch awaited them prepared by tbe, ladles ot Nobletord. Mr. Jfarnoch here thanked, the farmers of the two districts for their entertainment and the ladles tor their refreshments, and paid a tribute to the good farming that was so evident in.the district. Mr. Noble, in reply, said that they were always on the job, and were never afraid ot failure, since they were ail firm ibellevers In the summer fallow, jind one reason why they had failures In wheat this year (and they did, In-some sections) was that there was so much spring plowing and seeding ot wheat in response to the government's call for production. The summer fallow however was the only system. . From Nobletord the party went around the-, east farm, and thence home. Mr. Noble hag in crop this-year 1252 acres ot wheat, on which he expects to average on the whole from 30 to 35 bushels. On his summer tallow he w^iU average over 30. He also has 952 acres qt oats and 800 acres of rye. ' The New Combination. Mr. Noblo is much' interested in experimenting with the new combination cutter and thresher which it is hoped, it successful,,.win entirely do away with the necessity ot binder twine, fltookers, and bundle teams. Tbe first feature ot thlfu contrivance is a cutting rod which lays the wheat flat on the ground with the heads on top. Then there is a combination with a sheat loader arrangement and the separator Itself. The entire combination will cut tbe grain, pick It up and thresh it, and thus cutB the cost ot harvesting about in half. -Mr. Noble is not finanqlally Interested In the contrivance, but Ib merely trying It out, Mr, Gray and Mr. Maraball o Champion are rBBponBtble for tbe coiiiblnatlon.
