Ouillot, farmer du AlthougU the Ho raid lias madti sev- eral concerted attempts to learn defin- itely whether an, embargo' has been placed on Canadian wool, Its queries have been rnther unsntlsiactory. The most reliable Infcnaatlou comes from P. D. Sbaiv, coUuctor of the Customs fit this port, who savs that no em- bargo Is now in force, although such measures are anticipated. It IB a Tact that Great Britain is doing nil in her power to shut off Germany's wool supply and to reserve a sufficient supiUy ot wool for army elcthlng tor the Alllus. Tho question Is a very important one, anil will affect Southern Alberta In small as mosc of the coarser wools produced in Canada come from this provmee. Tho following from the National tt'ooi (Salt bake City) may Ehed some-light on the subject: "Early In January, at the solicitn- .Ion of our (United States) mauufac- urers .Great Britain removed the em- largo she had placed on. Australian Ine wools, and agreed to allow them o come to the United States. Ot :ourse, she required certain guaran- ees that neither this wool or Us pro- [uets would thereafter be exported to ny of the countries at war with her. 'his guarantee naturally implied that t we did not export the iuipo'rted wool, should likewise not export our omestic wool, However, while such guarantees were given, no one took them seriously, for it -was known all Work of German Baby Killers in England along that ol band A similar tax against Canadian is now on the free list coal with result that coal mlnea 'in B.

Peace Party In Washington recently, headed by Mrs. Robert M. that of war, and could be shipped to every country. No sooner had the embargo been removed than psrties in this country began to sell great quantities of our wool to German buyers, nad several million pounds of this has al- ready been shipped to Germany. Great Britain then sswivhat she have known all along, that the only way to keep this country from sending woof to Germany, was to shut off our sun- ply from the and thus force our manufacturers to use domestic wool, instead of exporting it. "Therefore, on February 5, Great Britain again shut off our access to Australian wool by re-Instating tha embargo. AE the South American clip has been sold, this means thai our manufacturers must now depend for RETLAW NEWS their entire supply, wool." on home grown The Wool Grower then predicts an advance, and elves an account of how pulled wool went up 5 cents a pound in Boston within 24 hours. No mention whatever la made of the Canadian clip, probably because of its insignificance In the world's, market. However, it ie a known that Great Britain needs all the she can get, and Canada needs a great deal. So it is incumbent upon the western grow- ers to see that their clips get to eith- er a Canadian or a British'market, whether an embargo ia in force or not. If American 'buyers are alloyed to come in and take .the western. Canad- ian supply, the intention oMh'e Moth- er Country will be defeated to- that extent. The prices .will be good, that much Is certain. They will be better than last year, if the judgment of Iccal sheep-, men ia worth anything. The following from the Textile' World Rtcord, oublisliad in Boston, may he of some Interest It Is con- tained in a. letter from one of the largest British marketa, and was brought to the attention of the Herald by Hatch t Lewis, the loeai ool dealers: "The prohibition placed by the Bri- fih government upon the export of unspun wool, has. not had the effect of depreEBing prices. The demand for army clothing rules'the bis market fs an excellent one for the ale of New Zealand, and Amerl- ;an crossbred a. Slips and locks and pieces are wanted -by the carded 'wool- en trade, coarse of the pre- claaa by the worsted trade, and Iner crossbred for knit goods... The up ply short, and prices are rising nd are likely to rise. The trsmaadoiiB un upon khaki has disturbed the civ- Jan trade In more ways than one, for has forced up prices to heights to -hfch the regular market has not yet ccommodated Itself. The flannel mills are powerless, to deliver any- hlng to the regular trade for the next mouths. The blanket makers are ull certainly for three months, and pon their account there Is a very Hve- demand for woollen rags. The nor: ial trade in worsteds has so long been lack that demand for quantities can expected from the home market efore the khaki boom expires." We had four trains this week: the now plough on Tuesday, the regular on Wednesday nnd. a grain special on Thursday and Friday. Our farmers are now getting their seed wheat aud oats. -Wheat is per. bushel ana oats and barley Sa cents. No govern- ment hay has come yet.
