This Teutonic offensive going to receive a price almost as low as other years. In dealing with Iho causes for the decline in the price of wheat the Grain Growers' Guide says: Of course, the big crops being har- vested. In the United Sillies and.1 Can- ada, the prosneclB that the forcing of the Dardanelles will release Russian stocks before long and other world conditions are largely responsible for the decline In prices, and if the re- turns from''this crop nro not as great as some people have been predicting, we must remember thai dear wheat at Liverpool means dear bread in Great Britain and France where every cent Is rcQulrecl in the prosecution of the war. As far as prices at Liver- pool are concerned, therefore. tive bora Canadians should do their willingly. The result of the war means Just as much to us as any other portion of the British Empire.

It Is "ot' entirely the fall in prices at Liver- Things altogether hopeless for the Russians however. With the ap- proach of a winter campaign, which is advantageous 'for the Russian troops and disadvantageous for the Germans, and with increasing muni- tions reaching the Russians, a turn of Iho tide should bs expected with- in a reasonable time. Attention has again been directed to the Welsh coal fields, where the miners are again idle through a dis- agreement -with the government au- thorities. The situation is even more serious now than in the first strike. The United States appears to be willing to accept Germany's attitude ot abjectness in its apology for tiie loss of American lives on the Arabic, the sinking of which will likely be disavowed by the Kaiser's govern- ment. The Germans state that they will furthermore make full repara- tion to the U. S. The question still remains open, however, as to -whether the submarine commander who did the deed exceeded his instructions or-merely lived up to his orders. pool, however, that has brought down the retura to the farmer in Canada.

In the form of provisions for families reached a iargo amount, and this, added to the charges for seed grain and fodder for animals, makes a very heavy indebtedness, and if taken out of the returns from this year's erop .wpuld -leave farmers without any re- sources to provide for themselves and their families for another year. The Dominion government undoubt- edly is cramped (or money and would lika to have all these advances to farmers paid, but it seems to ns to be a foolish policy to exact these payments' In cases -where a hardship would be imposed. It would simply mean paying back to the government what was advanced last year, and .then going to the government and asking for another advance to carry tfiem through for another year. loans are made by loan companies a term of years is given in which to make and we think the gov- ernment might very well decide to .only year the advances -for seed grain and fodder, and bold 'over" for. another year the payment of advances'for other--forms of relief. With the price of wheat sagging the farmers are not going to get the .money anticipated, and we have ;been advised that if the government 'persists in exacting the payment for all the relief out of this year's 'crop it would mean that the farmers .could not pay for binder twine or threshing. Under such circumstances works out at approximately 3VJ cents per bushel of wheat. It is estimated that on wheat alone this will mean a loss to western farmers of over if the same conditions con- tinue throughout the crop marketing period. Wheat, however, is only one ot the exports of Canada and the United States to Great Britain and manufacturers and producers of oth- er classes of foodstuffs in both coun-j ries are losing 3 per cent, of the; money which they should receive for goods shipped to Great Britain. Nat- urally the matter is being anxiously discussed in financial circles and in he financial press and while the rem- edy has not yet been agreed upon it s clearly perceived that the chief cause of the situation is the great in- crease of exports from Canada and the United States to Great Britain due to war orders, and the decrease of imports by these countries since the war ibegan. For some years, past Danada has imported a great deal more than she has exported and Bri- tish investors have lent Canada en- ough money to settle the account. Now, with our exports and those of the United States exceeding imports, and Canada still borrowing in Eng- land, the balance is on the other side. There is a lot of money standing to the credit of New York in London and a much less sum to London's credit at New york. In normal times the amounts are about equal and so cancel each other, and it is the un- usual condition that is causing the present low rate of exchange on this side and a correspondingly high rate on the other. The balance will .be partially restored by a British loan in the United States. There are two ways in tfhich the margin may be reduced, one being the shipment of gold from Great Britain to the United States, which is feeing done to a limit- ed extent. The other method, and the natural one, is for Canada and the United States to increase their imports from Great Britain. The present situation demonstrates the truth of the free trade contention that it is impossible to be'paid for the also or on the other hand, to pay for the without exporting. Canada has liberately reduead her imports fron Powell paid the association a remark- able tribute In a recent issue of the Graphic. The, association is just as valuable and helpful in a city like Letlibridge and there should be no hesitancy in giving it generous sup- port.

The rem- edy'is obviously the reduction of the tariff against British goods -by both Canada and the United States. Some people hold the view that the price of 'Wheat is being manipulated by tho interests. They contend that the price should be higher because there is a demand this year from countries in Europe that are at war and which in other years raise large quantities of wheat. They think that the decrease in the producing-area in Europe ought to create- a demand: for North American wheat which -would bring an unusually high price.

THE FALL IN THE PRICE OF WHEAT By the drop in'the-price of wheat! .the Grain- Growers' Guide estimates; fchat there will >be a loss to the farm- era of Western Canada of many mil- lion dollars. The fall in price is a disappointment not only to the farm- ere, but to all classes in Western Canada, ae it had been expected that the returns; from thie year's crop would mean as much as the profit the crops of any two previous yajjiri combined. This money is very much nieded_by farmers.to meet thtir obligation6, especially in Che districts which suffered from drought year. 'Now we 'Grid the price droppinc considerably below the doi- Ur mark and a tboufh the l.the same time there is a reasonable conclusion in the minds of .most, peo- ple that the war on the other hand should the price consider- ably higher than in any other year, tt :is possible too that the price may improve 'before many weeks. The ?rain market always weakens in the early harvesting period and strength- ens as the months go by. Farmers ijibo are in a position to hold their wheat, and unfortunately .there are not many of that 'class in this dis- 'irlct. may be able to get a dollar or more ft 'bushel for their wheat be- fore the year is out.

It is comm talk that it was Calder who worked outlining the rather complicated but daring and effective liquor legislation which wsnt into effect on the first of July. It is the details oi this Sas- katchewan schenKs which are niore amazing even than its main provi- sions, which, in a word, have closed every bar and club in Saskatchewan, and 'have taken the store trade from private into government hands. One of the details is that municipal coun- cils, under .certain conditions, are given the power to grant certain monopolies to a man .who will keep a hotel 'open in the town, of course without a liquor license. These pos- sible "monopolies include the trade in cigars and tobacco, billiards and pool, and moving pictures That is just a sample of the new paths being blazed in constructive temperance legislation in Saskatchewan, for j which the men largely responsible are the! active Calder and the quiet Scitt. 5 Liquor Trade's Enemy In Alberta, Sifton is the lawyer, ths judge who retired from the bench to become Prime Minister of a province whose people, careless ot precedent or legal conservatism, have not only introduced direct legislation (that "American" bogey so much feared by reactionaries, but, acting under this direct form of popular government, have signed the death warrant for the liquor trade in Al- berta.
