Dipl. Seattle, wash. Winnipeg Free Press Correspondence Ottawa, Jan. 5.-The tariff of Canada is being revise*!,.under the direction of Finance 'Minister White, by 11. W. Breadner, who, until recently has been tariff expert for the Canadian Manufacturers' association. The extent of the revision has not yet been determined, it may be comprehensive or it may be limited. However, the West Indian trade agreement makes it necessary to open up the tariff schedules of Canada to bring certain items into conformity with the agreement made last summer by Hon. George E. Foster. This has given the finance minister an opportunity to deal with a number of other items ir. the tariff that several Canadian industries want re-adjusted. It was the government's intention to do little or nothing with the tariff this session, hut to wait until a hill could he put through creating the permanent tariff board proposed by a government bill last session, but which failed to materialize because the senate made an amendment requiring the proposed tariff commission to report any watered stock in companies, which applied for tariff benefits. This amendment caused the governs ment to drop the bill. It was thought as a result there would bo considerable delay in the preparation of a fresh tariff because a new tariff commission could not be created until the close of this session of parliament, the naval issue had been disposed of and after its creation it would have to make extensive investigations before it- could recommend tariff changes to the finance minister. It was thought that such a board could provide the finance minister with information which would enable him to bringdown a general revision of the tariff next session. Minister Has Confidence in Expert However, the Manufacturers' association has come to the rescue of tho government and provided them with an expert in whom Finance Minister White has complete confidence and will enable him to dispense altogether with a permanent tariff commission. This is R. W. iiceadiior, for many years in the customs service of 'Canada and afterward in the employ of the Manufacturers' association. . He spent several years with tiiat organization as tariff expert. He thoroughly studied the tariff from the industrial interests standpoint and all of the suggestions for tariff changes made in recent years by the association wero prepared under the direction of Mr. Breadner. He was return ed to the government by the Manufacturers' association last autumn and since has given his entire time to tariff revision being in almost daily, conference with the finance minister. May be Extensive Changes If the naval issue is disposed of by parliament in time a tariff bill is likely to be brought down, which will make rather extensive changes from j the existing tariff, providing the col-j leagues are willing. If consideration of the, naval bill occupies a great deal I of time this session or if the other ! members of tho government are ro-jluetant, Finance Minister White will 1 defer the proclamation of extensive-tariff changes until next session, and this year will content himself with changes which tho West Indian agreement reuuifes and possibly a little more. Woollen industries, the steel, and- a number of other groups are bringing pressure, to hear to huVo tho changes made- this session and if the government desires to meet their wishes it is certain that they will not be prevented by the absence of a bill for the preparation of the measure is very extensively advocated; at tho present time. Mr. Breadiier's place as chief expert for the Manufacturers' association' haB been taken by J, ft; K. Bristol, who became chief Dominion appraiser when Mr, Breadner vacated that office to join the Manufacturers' association.

Men. of and on V-r- ^onie^lces, will bring the total capital expenditure for each farm somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000, this being the approximate sums for wuicli the farms are expected to pay li to T per cent, inttrest, after meeting all charges for labor, wear and tear of equipment, and upkeep of things in general. Tho manager's salary is not chargeable against, the farm, nor tho salary of the superintendent in Edmonton, much of t.hei time of each of these individuals being given over to work that may bo properly called educational. All other charges have to be met by the sale of the products oli the farms, and each farm stands upon its own feet, so to speak, in that a loss on one cauuot be made up by a gain on another. The Real Objects The first object behind the establishment of tlit-sc places is to make general farms pay and to demonstrate how it is accomplished. The second object was to make them the location of agricultural schools. To attain the first object a herd of dairy cows was placed on each farm and from that a large business has developed in the sale of milk and cream to Edmonton and Calgary. With milk selling at $2.50 per hundred pounds and butter fat at 30 cents or more per pound, it would seem comparatively easy business to demonstrate prolit in dairying, whether due to the example of tho demstration farms iu this matter or whether the price of products is the contributing cause, dairying has become a more popular industry in Alberta this last year. Similarly cattle feeding was undertaken. At Olds and Claresholrn last winter several hundred steers were yardfed for market and despite the handicap of having to buy all the feed consumed and haul it some considerable distance in each case, all of which was charged against the steers, a satisfactory profit was shown when the stock was marketed last spring, Whether due to the example of the demonstration farms or whether it in that beef promises to sell at record figures in the spring, more farmers than ever before Grain Growers Grain Co.

GUIDE DESTINIES OF OLD ONTARIO TOWNS Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Would Restore Her Health, And It Did. Edmonton, Jan. 0.-In order that more perfect provision may be made for �he handling of farmers' grain in the province the government of Alberta will guarantee the bonds of the Grain Growers' grain company whose, headquarters arc at Winnipeg, to the extent of at least one million dollars. The company in return will build sixty elevators in the province luring tho year. At the present time the company, is doing a. large business in Manitoba and the extensions of operations of the company to Albertai will make it ono of the largest firms oi the continent. The government of Alberta has had under consideration for some months the problem of dealing with the products of the farm, so as to secure for the producer a larger return for his labor. The two projects before the members of the government were the co-operative plan oi Saskatchewan and the scheme which has been worked oub by the fanners of Manitoba under adverse conditions. It is stated here that the government is reluctant to enter on plans as comprehensive as those which are suggested by many of the farmers of the province. These include in addition to the handling, of grain, the erection of packing houses, abattoirs, cold storage plants and the entry of the government to a large extent into commerce. Members of the government arc reluctant, to assures these responsibilities, but arc prepared to render every assistance to producers in carrying out. their plans.

Another point much made of when the question of thesej farms was first mooted, was the possibility they afforded for tho supply'of a very considerable Quantity of pure seed each year.

On this report, corroborated by a tradesman and one other, army officials got busy.
