It will surely be unlucky for a dozen of them. CRY for the removal of the tariff on natural products will not down in Western Canada. The government press in sneering nl the reciprocity pad as dead are poking at a man of straw. The Fielding agreement may be laid on the shelf owing to tlic hostility of the people of Ontario, but the principle is not on the shelf and is not likely to go there. The demand for the removal of the tariff so as to provide a wider market for the farmer is as insistent loday'as it ever was. It is in fact intensified as the result of the passing of the Underwood Tariff .Bill. The western farmer is making progress very slowly despite the well rounded periods of political orators at eastern banquet tables, and he rightly feels that the restricted markets, to which are added trust manipulation, is due much of the difficulty ex- perienced in making both ends mceL i 4 The western farmer stands to gain along all b'nes through unrestricted access lo the American markets." The apparent 'difference in prices in daily market reports is not the most important consideration. The farmer feels that he is hard hit'in.lhe system of grading of both grain and livestock, arid -were- he given the competition afforded by the American iriarkel he stand to gain greatly; and it is altogether likely that under those conditions he would sell liis produce to as great advantage in Canada as in the Stales. Underesent conditions ,he is at Hie mercy of Ihe interests fixing the prices and rules for and they are never fixed-in the interests of. the farmer.

SCHOOL BOARD AND ECONOMY. the recent election lliere was Hardly a word said about the School Board or Ihe administration of the educational inter- ests in-the city. Tins was not due to a lack of interest on tlie part of the ratepayers, but rather lo Ihe fact that Ihe first election under the new form of government for the city occupied full public attention. The retiring trustees were re-elecled by accla- an awful disas mation and it is probable that that would have been the result were claimed. I had .there been a full discussion of school affairs. But now that Ihe board is settled down ready for another year of work it might not be amiss (o suggest that the cty of economy, which is general instr'ur. in the should reach the ears of .the trustees. II is just pos, On this sible that there is not much in the way of extravagance in- the administration of school affairs, but it takes a lot of money to manage the schools, and there is a possibility that there might be ta saying here, and there which would tend lo lessen Ihe drain on the civic, treasury, Every hundred dollars saved is going to count until .the period of stringency passes away, and it is highly im- probable that the School Board has the expenditure at the ir- reducible minimum. The trustee? should very earnestly discuss the situation and in compiling the estimates for. 1914 eliminate ;.every dollar of unnecessary expense. There is no 'charge of ex- .trayagance in the past. All that is desired is thal.if the city com- inissioners find it .necessary lo cut out some'of the frills, the School Board might well emulate the example. The amount of money paid in school taxes reaches a fancy figure, and while Jhis city has every reason to feel gratified at the progress made along educational lines, it appeals to .many that the lime for resting for further civic expansion has arrived. We have all the educational facilities required for the city, and while it would he nice to see i.the proposed fine new High.School erected, it would he as well -.to get along with accommodations until the good times come again. The school trustees should go over the salary lost carefully and if there is nny place-where the pruning knife j tould be applied without interfering with efficiency it 5 dojie. Let us stand for economy in the School Board as well ns I the city hall. The Herald is of the opinion that the commis- of finance should next year insist on the fullest explana- before passing on the estimates submilled by Ihe trustees. I tt must not be supposed that the Herald is in any'way reflecling j on trie capable body of men who are giving of their time so freely iji looking after educational affairs. All that is slcsired is that ,-ifie trustees co-opcrntc with the commissioners in reducing the .expenses to the lowest possible umounl consistent with efficiency. jif that is done no intelligent ratepayer should complain Poor Canada she will have lo go t6 the bow.wo.ws, just where ed.fo'rrasrJiMltural purposes.
