Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SAITUDAY. FIWHUAHY 1-01R niK lk'rri'BHinr.r, daily tikhald Increase, a bushel of wlicit at fy'J.'ll would pay the freight eharges on IM.'j bushels from lirandon to Fort William. i Thus, uinlur this proposed increase, tho prh:u of one bushel of wheat will pay the 1'relght tolls ou ill bushels more ihrui Jn 1914.' In other worda. oven with the new rates in force, Ihe farmer will obtain for his wheat a price that will make ono bushel pay tho freight lolls on W'A percent more wheal than Jn liiU. if Mitrt should prove to be "discouraging" to the western fanner. Tho Telegram believes that It will be th� kind of "discouragement," which moat of them will take with a smile. Now let us see how tho new rales will "discourage" hog raising. In 1911 hog.s Hold at $V.Gii. a hundred pounds, Tl\In sum would fpay the freight charges on 4.fi4'0 pounds of hogs from MinnodoHu to Winnipeg, a distance of 13fi mlloH. in 1917 hogs wore worth $14.95 a hundred pound*. This sum paid the freight. eharges on !*,370 pounds from MfnnedoHt to Winnipeg. With tho proposed Increase fn rates and with hogs soiling at the same price ? 14.95 one hundred poundM of hogs will pay tho transportation lolls on 8,125 pounds between the same points. In other words, the farmer will 1)0 able to ship 75 percent: more hogs for tho price he will obtain for j '"general one hundred pounds today than lie' could under HU'I hog prices and 11*14 freight* rates. It is indeed difficult to find any "discouragement'' in tbene figures. Then lool: at beef--In 11U4 the price Winnipeg, Koi). is. Tho lollowin editorial appeared in Winnipeg Telegram: "Probably the least justifiable objoe-tfon made ut Ottawa against tho railway hoard's order for an increase of freight, rates was that, bused on the prediction that tho proposed himjaao would discourage production of grain, and liye stock by putting an nnnoees-snry burden upon the farmer. ft is obvious that no "unneccHsary" burden should he put upon the farmer, or upon any one else. if It could once he established that tho proponed rates Increase is "limn!-cesHHry" then the wholo case of tho railway board falls to the ground without further argument. Hut this has not been established, nor does the Telegram believe that, considering tho deplorable financial condition of every Canadian railway, with the sole exception of the O.P.K. it is at all possible to establish It. If we admit, then, that the increase Is necessary to preserve the weaker from complete ruin, let us turn to tho evil effect that such a rise it: raten have on production. In i hi4-The year in which the war started-wheal sold for hn.^ cents a bushel. This sum carried 11.'.i bushel from Brandon to Fnrr.

Air, Crnig says that an entirely harmonious agreement wax reached on all these points between the representatives of the several interests and tho list of regulations will be made effective by an order-in-couucil of the federal government. The outcome will be, it is i claimed, a marked improvement in trading and marketing in high places, hut fount! a ready and responsive chord, and true heart action among the common everyday shepherds and fishermen. And that, it was from among these that came the wisdom that in the dim distance first descended through the great mist.

The Fatherland party is Prussian militarism at hay. There are three tests.

The German press is full of speculations and accurate countings of votes, from which one gathers that, after stormy debates and many intrigues in the committee stage, it will be either passed or rejected by a, narrow margin of ten or twenty votes.
