F The Herald has been requested, by the Saskatchewan Grain Growers to publish the following:' The proposed sample grain markets ure. to be established at Winnipeg and l'oit William-later, possibly, at other points. drain will bv bought on the sample taken from cars at. these points only and exposed on the Winnipeg and fort William grain exchanges. The theory is that the farmer will get a better value as 'his grain will be bought nor, on trade but for its milling or mixing value-don't forget it. Head the thirteen questions. Only '! per cent, of the wheat crop is milled at Winnipeg; less than 1 per cent, at Fort .William. At. Minneapolis, 66 per cent, is milled-thoy have a sample market with a milling demand-that's the nigger in the wood-pile. The sample marketB are not at the country stations, but on. the Winnipeg and Port William grain exchanges. Grain Is not bought and sold on a grade given by an independent government inspection working under laws framed at the instigation of farmers' associations and on grades established by a standard board on which farmers are directly represented. This year the railways handled an average of 1000 cars of grain per day before the close of navigation. Next year they will probably handle 1300 to 1500 cars. A sample market, as described by the act, permits every car a 24 hours' stop off at the order point. Every day 1000 cars, and every Saturday, Sunday and Monday 3900 to 450(5 carB will be tied up in transit before they can be moved. This means: 1st-Delay in car supply. 2nd-Railway congestion. 3rd. -A -smaller percentage of grain moved before close of navigation and leas bought on low lake freight rates. 1.-Who has profited by car shortage, railway congestion or the failure HE DISCOVERED NEW LAND AND NAMED IT AFTER ROYAL FAMILY Seattle, Wash., Jan. 7.-The Chinook winds, the coming of which has been dreaded by railroad men for the last two weeks', have arrived. It. is feared that the fifteen feet or more of snow piled up iu the Cascade mountains, will be melted and will rush down (he slopes, washing out tracks and bridges, and . inundating the valleys. Snow, which fell yesterday in western Washington, has been reduced to slush by the rain and warm wind now (prevailing). The temperature lias risen on the average ten degrees in Oregon and Washington, and in some places twenty degrees. A southwesterly storm that will bring great masses of vapor from the sea is sweeping over Western Washington. The railroads have already begun to suffer from the thaw. The Milwaukee's Columbia train, date here at 11 o'clock this morning has been marked indefinitely late. Northern Pacific trains are three or four hours late. The Great Northern has no hope of opening its mountain division until late in the week. to move the grain before the close of navigation-the grain dealer or the grain grower'.' 2.-With a Hatnple market comes privilege of mixing grades, rs the mixing for the improving or skinning the grade? 3.-Has not the mixing ami skinning of grades gone on only utter the grain has left the hands of the grain grower? 4.-Does the farmer or elevator mixing and skinning grades profit by the process? 5.-'Who has profited by mix-in;? in the past? (i.-Who will profit by the deterioration in grades by mixing, the farmer or the grain exchange? 7.-Who will lose by the lowering of the standard of western grain ou the corn exchanges in London and Liverpool, the farmer or the middleman? 8.-If the mills (who by their requirements through their own country J elevators) only take 6 per cent, of the wheat, why should the other 94 per cent, be held up for the benefit of the grain, and the detriment and loss of 100 per cent, of the grain growers? 9.-Will the grain exchange, which has always set the price to be paid for each grade, not set the price for each sample, in the same old way? 10.-Is the grain exchange advocating sample markets for your profit or that of its members? 11,-Are the small elevators, without storage capacity, now being erected at Port William in anticipation of a sample and mixing market, to be operated in the interest of the grain grower or the party owning the elevators? 12.-How can the grain grower benefit by the sale of grain on sample when it has to be stored on inspected grade in the terminal elevators? 13.-How does the grain grower, who has sold his grain, benefit, by the manipulation afterwards?

The roadbed is already there and most of the bridges have been built. Au appropriation to cover the road with a good coating of gravel would put the thoroughfare in a condition fit for auto travel, be it for passengers or freight. It might be necessary to add gravel in places for a few years, but at the end of a short time we would have a road upon which good time,could 'be made and heavy loads hauled at a cost ridiculously below that of a railroad, and probably just as satisfactorily to the majority of people concerned. The money expended* by the government on this main artery sJiould not be wasted, nor should the work of improvement be halted for a single sea-sou; no matter how many vrailroad8 are built this road will always find its place iu the development of a considerable portion of the territory. But to obtain the maximum, of benefit it is necessary that traffic''can be handled at a minimum of cost, which in Itself implies a good, serviceable road."
