THE WKIKLY lo Rl'rtt of of tie wert. ll In tdrince 11.00 6 month j m'udvalce We quicker-, now lhat the barrier is ix-nioved, and it's removal I net as a stimulus, both to the industry and to the juices of There is one'thing certain. The removal'of the tariff is bound to be' a help to the Canadian farmer, though possibly in, varying degrees. In 1895, when ihe on wool was renioved as a condition of the Wilson-Gorman tarilV. exports of wool from Canada to the United States jumped to pounds tlie first and and pouruls the'second and thiitl j years respectiveiy. The following year, when the tariff was restored, and during the time of the "high protection" period of the American wool grower, exjiorts froth Canada to the [United States fell to tbs, and iii 1S99 to In addition to some pounds of grown wool consumed in Canadian mills, as high as pounds have been impprted. These are the finest Merino grades and are manufactured into 'the finest tweeds, worsteds a'nd beavers, and the amount brought in and the price paid, is largely determined by fashion. But the western wools are made into such staple lines as mackinaws, homespuns, sweaters, yarns, etc., and prices are fairly according to the these articles are marketed, The breaking down of the tariff bound to help 'the western randier, though it may be only indirectly for a time, as he gets into tlie raising of coarser wools the American manufacturer wants, more direct benefits, will come to him. It is at least the'reinb'val of'oiie restraint on trade which naturally benefits every producer. OUK POINT OF VIEW The roorbachs are ripening; be prepared for very mushy ones. ._ Thal'the men who'get the most votes -ft-ill be elected is about the surest bet of-all: Vote only for. the men who stack up well from the standpoint GROWING DEMANDS OP. SCHOOLS THE GROWTH of school p'opulalion'iif and the rapid filling up of the evidenced by the fact that fully 300 new schooldistricls are organized in Alberta even- year. On the. low average of ten to a school that means 3000 children even-, year being provided for facilities. It is a great Svork and one .worthy of the very best" thought of the public men of tlie country. The pity of-ifalt is.' that with the settlement .of. the newer parts of the country the'childrcn have to travel con- siderable distances to school to endure the privations iiicidentvfo pioneer life. 'The rapid multiplicity of .school districts indicates drain'on the financial resources of the province, for no sooner is a school in working order than it ranks for the government grant. were" fo multiply, in tlie "future as rapidly as they have in the past -it-would not be long revenues have to be directed to educational purposes.; While'.money could not be expended for a better purpose, the needs of the roads, bridges and general administration of ihe province must be looked after, iirid the; government therefore confronts the. task of adjusting revenues and expenditure so as to meet; the growing demands of the school districts and at the same lime not .starve Hit general public.service.' In order to give more generous aid to the struggling rural districts the legislature, recently decided to re- duce the large towns and cities and divert the money to schools. .This move will impose-no hardship on the cilics and should.prove of great benefit to the newer districts 'Alberta stands up well with the older provinces in its educational system, arid assistance given, and any-reasonable re-adjustmenl of grants the government may make in order to greatcsl possible financial assistance to the new settlers should receive the general commenda lion of the people. N FREE WOOL A BENEFIT. OW lhat we have free entry of Canadian wool into the Unite Slates, il remains to he seen TvKelher" the prices paid as was prophesied by many local woo men last.summer, -when shearing was in. full progress. Tli sheep industry in in a som'evvlial peculiar an iinsatisfactory condition. The.facf that-the multon.situation i it miglil be accounts for the condition of the woo branch of sheep husbandry being unsatisfactory, for Canadia breeders raise sheep primnrily-for their mutton, as do breeder in other parts of the world. A Jarg'u aiiiOuni of Canadian wool is superior to siniiln {iradcs from other countries, bul tlie fad .that it is of incident! Jinporlance lo the breeder accounts for the general lack of.cni jjiveii to its production.- It has consequently been relegated lo a indifferent standing in the wool markets of the Hi first place the surplus supply is riot large. il is of so mixr n character, and usually so filled with vegetable and fpreig mailer, and put up in such a careless manner that buyers i Hnglnnd endeavor to avoid il rather than to seek it out, Th 'applies fo Canath'an wools in general.: -Wools" grown on 111 ranches of Alberla and Saskatchewan; are fruly in a-class b tlieinsclvcs. The annual clip approaches pounds in tl: grease, and is classed generally as fine medium. It is finer Ilia any produced in any of the other provinces, and slightly coarse than the fine Merino'wools from Australia and South Amcric grade is gradually growing coarser, owing lo the intrc tluciion of mutton blood, as Ihe. ranges become seftied. 1 rjxporls.from Canada.have always been inade largely to li -United Stales, and consisted chiefly of combing wools, washed o lite sheep's back. Duly was paid .according to weight, so the di was washed out. Combing wools come from the coarser fleece breeds, Lincolns, Colswolds and J-eicesters, of whic there ore very few on the weslcrn ranges. But as the flocks b come increased in number and decreased in size, this blood b comes more permanent, as if represents mutlon, whereas the Merino sheep now predominating the plains, yield comparatively Carcasses.
