Piftyy, dollars and costs was the tine Imposed on Dr. A'i'-B;' Welford, . deep depression when he; Contrasted the work to be done "with the means Bvallahl^ for doing It. To lilm the hardened and experienced Ottawa habitue replied that If ho had known the capital of old he would, find .the conditions of today an inspirtktio'n, not a depressant. The political millenlum has not arrived; but there have been, nevertheless, changes of-mood and Intentloii that, if they continue to operate, will effect/'i political revolution in Canada.^ _ The new order of things Is Indicated-by., two bombardnfents which hai^e always accurately registered political pressure at tho capital; tl!^ hotel rotundas and the waiting rooms of the ministers. From both - places there has^ almost disappeared tho types that once filled them- place-hunters, toll-takers, contract-seek' ert, party workers, 'political bosses in the making or the unmaking, all restleiisly scheming to gSin thoir ends. "The disappearance ot the party hacks from the ante-rooms of the ministers Is perhaps the moat significant of the portents, of better day that abound. When the Job-hunter. th.e most pertinacious and 'thlck-sklnned of mortals; begins to realize the hopelessness of' the chase and drops out, there is no de nylng the fact that a new day bas dawned at the capital. Quite as significant of the new order of things are the new faces that have replaced the old in these meeting-places. Look around the .rotunda of the Chateau l,aurler in the evening and you will see men of note and promise who are' here on the couhtry's business, not _ their own. Here is to be seen.^s an illustration, Charles A.. Dunning, provincial treas\frer ot Saaltatche-wan. who, in response to a summoDs has put his own .business asideand Is giving his time, his experience and his energy to the. great task nf inducing a great Increase of food production this summer. Here, too, is J. D.'McGregor, who. has given over to other bands the administration of his chain of. farms In Mtlnl-toba and has charged, himself... with the business of- supplying labor necessary to carrying out: the food* production plans. Here, also,' is one of-the most brilliant.arid Bucdessful o'f t|^e /youngorvbuBlness. men; in :Can-. ada, who Is giving all his time-.':to' the newly constituted war trade board. which is expected to'do a groat work in preparing tor tho different times' that will follow the war.. The Instances might 'bo'multiplied;* The b03t> bualnhss Qien of the country are coming v to Ottawa these days, not to capture contracts for tho tattonlngr of private fortunes, but to Ihelp tho new Qovornment in its enormous task ofrtgivlng Canada an adrolnlstrallon that wilt'meBsure up, to s8me diEigree,'('tq.' tlie dlrolieeds of the occasion; SonfA Of these are staying fAr the'dl�ehargo of duties imposed upon them;'others come for \pur-poses of consultation and then depart. There flows through tho capital n^eek by week a current of special advisers colled herd to^ glvo the Ofvornment the benefit of their �dvlce and assistance. Ten days ag^ the loaders ot organized labor were.^ere and 'held lengthy dpnforonces witli the Govern ment; a tow dayQ later'the .Minister bf Agriculture Imd the benefit of a consultation with representatives of the llve-stook\in^u8try all parts of Canada; today tlfS Premiers of tho Province* are mieeting tho members of the Dominion Government to learn the Insldo facts about the war and the economic situation, at honid and abroad, 'which has been created by it, tor tho purpose ot securing from them n larger measure of co-operation and sympathetic silpport. In addition to these Invited advisers the Government is getting, to a degree that Is/ disconcerting, tho volun tary assistance of well-meantng enthusiasts. The impracticable idealist, with the ready-made scheme for the solving of all our problems, is not an unknown figure In Ottawa today; and he is by way of being a terror to, the hard-worked mlnlslern. But this Is, In itself, a very good sign ot the change of public opinion In Canada-Ottawa Is today the mec'ca of thoao wlio want to help. All this Is syiflltomatic ot tli^ spirit which within the past year has brought about a.4)0lltlcal upheaval In Canada, smashing our tlme-encrustcd political systems ~and forcing tho forra'allpn of' a' Giiverument representative of all thqao eloments in tho community' which hofd thot tho question of ^ the war Swallows  "  J   ---~ RAISE U. �. >Rlbp Washlnaton,, "l!eb. 2�r-P,r��'-dent Wilson today raised-Mia gov-� ernm^iit- guarantssd- |iri6a-for- the 191S wReat crop wk hieh � 2.2S ajlbushsl In-one primary ^markst nd In varying sums In all ethtr 'primary markets except foiir.j[he.
