It true, however, that the farmers and HELPLESS HORSES A pathetic sight in the streets to- day, with the slippery condition they ire in, is the staples of helpless horses whose owners have not shown the consideration their animals de- serve in having their hoofs sharp-shod. In other cases the horses are not even shod. The omission of making provision for enabling horses to get a firm grip of the slippery strcois is s cruelty to these animals, which no true lover of horses, or ot any other animals, should be guilty of. But It would ap- pear, when the sight of horses floun- dering along is seen, that there are TODAY'S QUESTIONS 1. Who are the n.embors of the Dominion Who are the members of Government? 3.

Wnat was the revenue of Can- In the flrst year of Oonfedor.- certain 'individuals who are callous to what in the circumstances must be hardship which the animals un labor, 'combined, in the Ontario elec- tions a year ago, elected a labor can- didate in a three cornered fight, by a considerable majority. Up until 1904. West Peterboro had been almost consistently Conserva- tive. In 1904 ami 190S the Liberals carried the city. In 1911 J. H. Burn- ban was elected by a very close ma- jority over the late Hon. J. R. Strat- ton, and in 1917 Mr. Burnham was re- elected by a tremendous majority. Burnham is an erratic individual. He.pretends to be an out and out Conservative, but he is more ot a crank than anything else. It is hardly llkaly that he will poll a very large number of votes in the coming elec- tion, the electors, in his constitu- ency have become more or less dis- gusted with the attitude he has taken in of Commons. It would appear that there are like- ly to be, about half a dozen candidates la the leld. That makes it all the difficult for the Government candidate to be confident of victory. Undoubtedly the Liberal candidate will declare himself in favor of a pro- tective tariff, and if he does, and the farmer and labor vote is divided, as Is to be the case, with a candidate -each in the Held, he a very good chance of winning. What- ever support Mr. Burnham gets will come from the Conservatives, and his candidature, therefore, will dam- age the Government candidate more than anybody else. If the Liberal! are united behind their .nominee they ought to win the city. Another bye-election will take place shortly In York County, New Bruns- wick, on account of the death of the sitting member, Li-Colonel jJMcLs York County, with one or two exc tions, has been Conservative since Confederation. Apart from tbe city of Fredericton, it is largely rural, and it is possible a farmer's candidate may make the results there ad un certainty. THE FARMERS AT THI B. OF T.

If we are right in this, then there U ample scope for its activity In regard to teeing that horses are to equipped that they can move along the roads with ease and con- fidence instead ot having, as in many a needless ftarsomeness put into them, with consequent suffering. Apart from any institution in the city whose province it is to prevent anything in, the shape of cruelty to animals, it ahouM 'be a humane, if not a necessary, duty of the police to take action so that the dumb seen on our streets be spared any- thing of the suffering which slipping about on the streets entails. It ii only right that the police should see that the hoofs of horses are so attended to that they can negotiate with security the streets. SOUTH AFRICAN tlou?

In regard to the possibilities ahead, provided they are intelligently graap- ed, with the intelligent application of methods to ensure the realization of rosy anticipation, the farmer speakers at the banquet, on Monday night, bree'hed that cheery optimism which ia invaluable, In that It is built on a rock of intelligent faith. Without appearing to draw any in- Ti-JInns distinctions, it can be said that the speecnei, bv the farm- ers at the Board of Trade banquet were a feature ot the proceedings of tho evening. They brought an in- spiring message to the dwellers in tbc city. They exemplified the true vi- sion, seen in a practical light by those who are accustomed to deal with prac- tical things. It was the fresh invigor- ating spirit of men who breatlied the atmosphere of out of doors. There was nothing of florid oratory. Their utterances were those of plain people accustomed to plain thinking, with the conclusions that practical experience gives. Southern Alberta may well pride Itself on the particular qualities and Character of the farmers in it. They are more, than farmers; they are in- telligent termers. If progress and de- velopment Is to be the lot of Southern Alberta, this is ensured by the char- of the men who spoke at THE PRICE OF WHEAT Dealing with Use common impres- don the price of wheat here fallen beeanae the Britiih Royal Cora- miiaion on Wheat Supplies ab- stained from buying the ninal quan. tity, whereas the Britiih usually absorb oOfrhalt the crop ot this continent, the monthly, commer- cial letter of the Bank ot Commerce, ot January 1931, issued from Toron- to, points out that from July 29th to early In November, so faf as is known the Commission did not buy any the United .or Canada and during this period the price ot (fa- 1 Northern fell from to a bushel. It Is known that the British Commission purchased large- ly in May, June and July of 1919 and was In a position to ignore the new Canadian crop altogether. In the past the United Kingdom hag been the largest purchaser ot Cana- dian wheat, and the bank letter gives the following particulars of the oper- of the British Royal Commis- sion. Until last April, United States and Canadian wheat were bought through its department, the Wheat Export company, which in turn bought from the Canadian Wheat Board and the United States Grain Corporation. When the two latter came to an end, the Wheat Export Company also ceased operations, and since then the British Commission has bought in London through the representatives of Canadian and United States export- ers. This is now its practice in con- nection with all abroad ex- cept from Australia, the crop is still being pooled and sold by the Australian Wheat Commutes in Lou- don. Until Jate in 1920 the tonnage to carry wheat from exporting coun- tries was "directed" by the Minister of Shipping, but now buying la done on a c.i.f. basis, sellers providing the tonnage. To distribute the wheat Ihe Commission uses the ordinary trade machinery. The importing merchants distribute wheat, as instructed, through local agents, at prices fixed so as to allow a. loaf of bread to be The difference between the price paid to the produc- ing countries and the price charged to tho millers in Britain Is provided by the "bread subsidy." In order to reduce the subsidy and to keep it within bounds, the price of bread was advanced in October from 9d. to 15d per quartern loaf. The "bread subsidy" is Intended to be entirely absorbed in the price of bread by next March, when it is the hope ot the British authorities thai the world prices of wheat will have fallem sufficiently to render unneces- sary any further advances in the price of bread. Until this form of regulation in Britain comes to an end, the bank letter Is of the opinion that there will he uncertainty as to the price of wheat. It. In apparent, how- of Hon. N. W.
