THE WEEKLY HER'.LD Publirhefi tftrr In eljht p'tgtf. ted k of th? of tte week, JoraJ and district 1 year in advance 51.00 6 months in adracce 50e 'itu! a iwliuii of Hie pomvsl formers it tins become city Mixliriuct or Mcdiciuiit. Now let us have Mi-iliviiu: 1 hit's one cf Ihe nuist LX'innark has suited in Iho roclaimiiis! of inuucnsc tracts of land regarded as waste for centuries, and by the application of intensive principles] families earn considerably more than a living off very sninll trucls. The dairy imiuslry hus especially prospered and Ihe man; I handling butter on the lirilisb market knows lhat the Danish j product commands a premium over that of every other i Canada included. The success cf the co-operative principle in j Denmark has been due to the farmers getting together, the in- vestment of unceasing industry and considerable encouragement from the government and Iransporlation companies. If Mr. Bury is genuinely sincere in his for the general applica- tion of the co-opmitive prinAple in Western Canada he has it within his power as manager of the greatest railway system to do much to help the farmers out. If the C. P. R. were lo emulate Ihe example of the Atlcbison system in the southern republic in jStiai-.tnU'eiug lo ketp the fanners posted on market tendencies and to encourage intensive methods by supplying refrigerator cars and carrying produce lo the market at reasonable rates, a long stride would be taken in Ihe direction which Mr. Bury advo- cates. 11 is pointed out Unit fanners depress the market by going in wholesale for some one line, say year or hogs another. There is no iluubt but over production is a serious matter for Iho farmer, but to date it has not resulted in much benefit to the consumer. If thciv is an over production of hogs and the farmer receives two dollars a hundred less, Ihe consumer keeps right on paying Ihe- same price. It is the same with wheat. No matter how low the prices drop Ihe consumer pays praclicidly the same- for Hour, all of which tends lo creale. the impression thai Ihe cunitnl iu'.ws'eti is earning tremendous dividends al the opinion on these new names. expense of both producer and consumer. There are a greal many thousand farmers and if il is feasible there should hf some sort of orgnnizHliun to direct the production anil the marketing of the production. Just how lhat can be counlry covering the tremendous extent of Canada's three prairie provinces and the production be regulated so thai just a suflicient quantity of the different grains, live slock and fodder be provided lo meet market demands, is a huge problem which Mr. Bury C.pmmentinj! on Ihc appointment of the Dominion commis- sion lo investigate the high cost of living Ihe Saskatoon Phoenix says: "The west needs a special inquiry into its own special con- ditions. Eastern prices and 'eastern wages, and western prices and western wages is the right sort of comparison; any mixture of these would reduce Ihe inquiry to a burlesque. When we arc having a commission of inquiry inUi our economic slalus let il be thorough-and effective, and of permanent value, and its find- ings such as to constitute a reliiiile bisis for future economic surveys of Ihe country."

The feat- exists Ittere as in the gits areas of Alberln, Hint Ihe supply will he exhausted if companies' pipe the gas nil over Ihe country. They argue lhat Ihe should remain in Ihe counties where it exists. The case in Alberta is even more dangerous to the supply than in thesu counties. Here il is proposed lo pipe Hie Has long dis- tances and experience proves that in such circumstances then- is a lot of waste before Hie gas reaches its destination.
