The operators were in conference all day today.' Hon. T. W. Crothers and-the-miners' representatives are waiting the reault of the conference. Hon. . T .W. Crothers again-declared that the government certainly will step In If no' agreement Is reached soon.

' BRITISH SOLDIERS TO , .TURN FARMERS Empire Prepares for a Great "Baek-to-the-Land" Movement After the War . HALP-PROFIT PLAN URGED What, when the war is ended. Is to become - of the millions of fighting men who will have to be mustered out of tl^e British Army? This question is occupying :the attention of Statesmen .knd'others, in all parts of tha' great einplre as ibeing the'most formidable ecph4mlc"problem Of the more or less near fuiure. 'while the majority'of the soldiers wlir; return i toTthei^proffissiohs,, busi-ne^aes, md''^^loyments whlcb. ithey |l[Wins|i^,, ^K;'" Bonnie exion l^rQduceil *by ;u�ina Sttiart'c Calcium tWaferii AftaJCMealii,. They Purify the Blepd and' Remove All'> . ,Trlai:;j�ais^afl*.;MailedFri*^ ^... in a few days after using Stuart's Calcium Wafers you will be;;over-Joyed to. see those pimples all gone, the redness disappeared, new J skin gradually covering the cheekSr neck and shoulders, free of blac]|^headB, blotches, liver epbts - and thosef.dther eruptions that have been sucli a plagued aiinoyanoe. The'reason for-all thib i^ tltJe calcium aulphide, the,' principal ./ilgent of these Wafers, 7/hi8 is a haiural substance which th to $285 an acre, according to location, and to what the farmers figure they can get for It. The Government purposes to open large areas of crown lands. The argument Is advanced that iC the prices asked by the farmers are high the prospects of agricul-tnre in New !!ealand are exceptionally favorable. The soil is rich, the climatic conditions preclude the possibility of drought, and the number of co-operative dairy and rae.Tt associations In the. colony insure a ready market for whatever products the settler has to sell. As regards South Africa, the half-protit system alone appears feasible, indeed possible. The situation there is outlined as follows by a local expert: "The chances of employment on the land for white labor are smaller in South Africa than in any other colony or dominion. The rural population of South Africa has thrown off as derelicts some 50,000 people, born on the land and therefore more fitted to make a living from the land if they had a dog's chance. But they do not have the chance; There is the whole problem In a sentence. They have no chance, and they have no chance because there Is no employment at a living wage for the white farm hand. A white woman in a letter to The �Weekly Cape Times on this very question asked how a family of five could be expected to live on a wage of 60 cents per day. If they were better paid, she said, there would be no complaints, for they were quite willing to work, and knew how to work and would be glad of the opportunity to work. "Farm pay in Pnuth Africa is based on the scale of lite set by the Kaffir; who lives in a hut, subsists on mealie pap, requires little clothing, and has very few expenses. The Kaffir works at from 12 cents a day, and the more efficient, colored laborer at 60 cents. "Austi-alian farming is based on a wage of $1.50 per day, and American farming on from $1 a day and found, with the result that American and Australian farmers are bound to make more per acre In ordei- to pay the higher wage. That ba'ings up the question of efficiency, higher cultiva-^ tion, and more produtjtion. "South Africa is firming on the smallest Wage and the most inefficient farm labor-which means lower production-and at the same time forces the poor landed population into the class known as poor whites." Derby, Feb. . 3.-a sensation was created at the opening today ot the case against .Mrs. Alice WhoeUlon, her daughters, Miss Anne Wheeldon and Mrs. Alfred George Mason and Mrs. Mason's husband, all accused ol' con-spirac yto m.urder Premier Lloyd George and Arthur 1-lenderson, ot the war council, when Attorney-General Smith alleged it had been intended to murder the premier by means of poisoned darts to be shot at him while he was playing golf. Roth the premier and Mr. Henderson were to be killed, he added, by means of pOison sent in lube.'i! to Derby and handed by M^s. Wheeldon to an agent, employed by the military authorities who had'-ingratiated himself into her favor;,, � The poison comprised hydro chloride, strychnine and United States:. Indian poison called "curere" said tO*'bc .\ised in poisoning arrows. It was pro posed to use poison on darts whicll were to be shot at the premier ^a( Walton Heath where he plays golf. DR.
