The Candidzte Mr. Buchanan was then introduced ftinid .long and loud applause. "There is no better way to decide on this question than to become well informed upon it. Let each elector study Ihe question carefully, consider all arguments pro and, con, and then 'decide it as a business said the speaker in opening. The history of the question in the Canadian parliament was cited, show- lug Sir John A. Alacdonald's support nivd advocacy of it, the reason for Lord Elgin's negotiation of the. first treaty was quoted from Bourlnot's his- tory as being the need for greater markets, more prosperity for the set- tler as an antidote to tlie "annexation which was then growing. Vet Conservatives tell us today that the jirospertty that may come will lead to annexation. The inconsistencies of the Tory ixirty as 'by Herron's support and the treatment meted out to Air.

'The British preference as given by the Liberal party, the benefit's to the agricultural industry In wheat, barley, 'beer, eic., were shown as being induce- ments to loyalty and as having no enect for the production of annexa- tion sentiment.' Agricultural prosperity for Canada meant everybody's prosperity; this was the farmers' fight and they i Simula show that they appreciated ft by voting for it.

So far cutting operations have beea confined to winter wheat nnd barley. If had been expected a month ago that tlie spring wheat would have been ready lor the harvester bclore Ibis date, hut so far this month the wcalher has been more backward lhan is usual in August. Every week since (lie beginning of the month-Mih has fallen, tile total for tlie month to date having passed the four-inch mark. Naturally with so much rain and dark weather Ihe crops did not advance so rapidly as would have been the case if hot dry weather: had been the rule. Howevet, the cropi are not suffering any from tlie ram, and the only thing to be icarod is thai ripening may he retarded so that Irost might overtake them before they are in the stook. During the week there was one light when the thermometer register- ed 31-5, and it was feared that frosfe might have appeared in some locali- ties. No reports to this eflect liavc conic in .and it is safe-to i'aj that hone of the crops in Southern Albcr- la have yet been affected. Experts state thai both the winter and spring wheat crops are now so far advanced that if would take several degrees ot frost to dp any damage. Friday's raia came at an inoppor- tune lime for the farmers, and al- though not at all heavy will retard cutting operations to some extent' II was, however, not heavy enough to discolor tlie wheat which is in tlie slook, and onlsido of delaying opera- tions at a busy time, had no serious elTcet. In those districts where there i-as an abundance ol rain. through the season, mating the winter wheat somewhat later in ripening than in other districts, cutting has just lie- un, and will, not be general till next week. Spring wheat, cutting will start all over the districl about one week from Monday, if the weather 'rnm now on is favorable. The spring wheat crop this year is probably the lest of any of Hie grain crops, the conditions during tlie whole season; 'mtr Oats and flax will follow in very after Ihe winter wheat.
