The tig-ares are as follows: From the V. S. A, 183,624; from British dominions 62,-480; from other countries 53,775. Of the total 300,000 about 146,000 came during the year ending March 3lst, 1915. Last year 61,000 came : from the U.S.. as compared with 14,000 from nil other countries. During the seven months ending October 31st, last the figures were: Americans 25,449; from �n other countries, 5,600. The 1919 wheat prices' probleni eems likely to bring home to" the people of the west a realijiation of the changes that, since, the outbreak of war, have taken place In industrial methods. In the pre-war days the prtj-dnelng aod markStirig of a pr6duct was a comparatively simple problem com-1 pared wlth-wha;,*it is today. In the' sale of products prices were regulated pretty much by the free play of �upply and demand. Bnt for some time past it has not. been so, and in so far ^3 certain products are concerned, it is unlikely to be so again for some time to come. It is now generally realized that, if during the coming year wheat prices are left entirely to the free play of competition, western agriculture will be faced .with one of the worst situations, that has confronted it for many years. For ^hould a lower level of prices prevail in dariada than in the United States, the latter is sure to place an embargo on importations of wheat *rom this country. Today nations are It is generally known that both Montreal and Toronto did very well out of'the iiwtjUloas' orders but it Is not so generally known how well they really did. It Is now said that .Montreal's 'orders aggregated $255,000,000 while Toronto's stand at $175,000,000. E SUIMECLUB FORTHEVEIERANS While all th* diaeuMion about tbe erection ot a memorial (or Leth-brldge And district'* fallen Boldiers has been going on, the qMition of providing a suitablo 'permnarat club tor the Great War Vctemns has been overlooked, but this, matter la likely to receive attention shortly, according to a statement made to The Herald thJ� morning by M�>er Har-die. At the presemt time the boys have their club in the old iMd oKlce building, owned by the Dominion government, bnt they have no fixed lease on the building. As a matter of fact, the building Is loaned to the boys through the city's action in ~?ecurlng it for them, and the city is responsible. JIayor Hardie is' i^ow- ot the opinion that something shdiild be done to secure It pismianently. Whether the Dominion govemmeat^-ould give it s. __r--', the boys is tfiiestlon which has Some phople have not been slow to' not been broached to the govem- say that farmers have been making big money out of the war: but when the total value of farm products is placed beside that of the mimitlon orders It looks very riuch as though the farmer was nbt in with the maker of munitions. For example, Montreal munitions' orders exceeded in value the total field crops har�'ested.'during 1917 in Ontario, Quebec anff � New Brunswick. Montreal and Toronto's orders combined were only $50,000,-000 less in value than the total value 61 1917 grain crops of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. As for the 1916 field crop values It is found that all the field crops grown in Saskatchewan 4nd Alberta that, year amounted in value to only $8,000,000 more than the totai'v'alue of munitions' orders received by Toronto and ilontreal. The Canadian Northern or Canadian National Railways as the system is now called since the amalgamation of theJC.N.R., N.T.R., and I.C.R., went through, _are preparing to do a lot ot work, during 1919. They are asking the government for $50,000,000 and, as considerable construction work is contemplated this means that many thousands of men will be employed. Of the new mUeage contemplated: the ment. But it is possij^le that the government if asked to sell the building to be used as a soldiers' club might put a low enough valuation upon it so that It could be paid for either by a popular subscription or by long-term debentures Issued by the city. At any rate, the mayor cays that something will be done shortly to obtain it as a permanent Institution for (jhe boys.
