There is something wrong between Uia prices paid hy us and the prices paid by city people for the same article and the new�pn.pers having, or pretending to have, the welfare of the farmers, who are the backbone of the country, at heart, should try to find out what the trouble is. During the 31 years I have lived here tlie newspapers have been full of about only three things, raising Oaln with any government that happens to be in power; defending the actions of the governmeiit that happens to be In power, and raising the devil with the railroads. .N"ow, 1 guess the railroads deserve all perhaps that has beon said about them, and maybe a lot more, but at the same time what some of us farmers can't got through our heads, is why the papers are ni-waj-9 slamming the railroads, aiul never take a crack at some other interests, because 10 a man of even ordinary Intelligence there must be other sinners in the country besides the railroads, and it looks to mo as it some of the other said sinners have been urging the slambanging of the railroads to keep atteutlcn away from themselves. The railroad foreman in charge of the track near my taim tells me that 2o years ago he got ?2 a day, and now he gets So a day, and the engineer on the way freight gets nearly $5.50 a day now. and he used to get only ?3.7o a day, and the way freight conductor was paid $3 a day then, and now he gets $4.GO a day. This foreman says that all the men In the railroad have been raised about the same because they had strong organization behind them. When I first started shipping grain to Port Arthur the rate figured up to about 14 cents a bushel for wheat, while today it is a shade less than 8 cents a bushel, and there Is about the same difference In other grains. On the farm machinery, hardware and drygoods, that I bring la I pay the railroad now 25 to 40 cants less per hundred pounds than I did 21 years ago. I had some grievances against the railroads, because some years ago when they kUled some of my neighbor's stock, and Bhelr engines burned up some of our grain, it took them a long tlmo to get paid, the railroad try-iDg to put tbem oft with polite lettera, but I can't get out of my bead that In slambanfing the railroada all the time the Idaa ia to take away ttae tarmer's attenti�m from other people who are making more from them tban they should. If the railroads can almost double the wages, reduce the ratea and make a profit, it seems to mo that those in other businesses ought to be able to do the same thing. The section foreman aaya the reason the railroads can do this is becauBe they haul bigger trains, bigger cars, and have cut down the hills, etc. Not long ago when I wag in Winnipeg �. friend of mine from the Grain Exchange took me for a trip in his auto- THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE am EDMUND WALKER, C,V.O..LL.D..
