Cnlgnry News Telegram seems lo think Ihnt it is Ihe bcsl kind of good govern- ment lo have things go lo the bow wows and spend millions on public works to feed the un- employed. The Borden government is being held up by the News Telegram as a paragon of good government, and the Premier is going lo make Ihe eyes of the unemployed shine by the dazzling amount he is going lo spend in Hist city on public works. We will awail the starling of the work before exposing our eyes to the rluzzle, but might in the meantime remark that it is many n .year since the streets of the cities of Canada were teeming wilh unemployed as they are today. Evcrv day hrings in news of near riots as the men asking in vain for work threaten damage and even in Toronto, the truly loyal which would un- der no circumstances give the farmers of Western Canada a chance, it is said thai there are twenty- five thousand unemployed. That is all right in the eyes of the Rogers press, hut if Ihe Liberals were in power there-would be an awful outcry from these game papers. It makes some differ once which foot the pinching on. lime arguments about loyalty a laughing siock-. leinable.and. untiring cor.Juctor.

WILL the common unirrigated plains of Soii- thern Alberta ever reach the values attain- ed by similar lands in the middle weslern States? It is an oft-repeated question, which has nat- urally had many answers. It is a mailer of great concern to nearly everyone in the country, espec- ially at the present time when'real estate is some- what quiet. The answers generally heard as 'casual remarks, are in the affirmative. Men who have something to sell fm.ctuac me Ihst Ir.r.i Values are advancing, not swiftly perhaps, but steadily. The chronic knocker says thai they will never reach a value beyond fifty dollars an acre. Just here, a remark made lo the Financial Post of Canada, by a man who knows, may have some bearing on lliis interesting topic. He was asked, during his experience in Nebraska, he had ever known farm lands actually lo depreciate in value. He replied Uiat while there may have been periods when prices stopped going up, he had never seen them actually drop. These times of seeming depression in land sales are simply periods of adjuifr.ient of value. Farm lands in the State of Nebraska sell rehtlily at from ?100 (o an acre. Forty years ago they sold for 53.50. Greater proportionate increases may be cited in Western Canada, anu il docs nol necessarily fol- low lhat land in Alberla will be fanned for forty years before it attains Ibis value. This fnrm luiul specialist looks upon land in Western Canada as a better investment than the productive Stale of Nebraska. He believes lhat the rise in value will he more rapid, because the intrinsic and producl- Ive value is grealer. The longer the values re- main as they are, the mort rapid will be Ihe settle r. ment of the country, and as Ihe prairies are set- Iu keep the fanner tied hands and feel io (he various interests now so busy fixing [lie murkels so as to squeeze both producer and con- sumer. The Herald has been assured by a local stock raiser Ihal the interests which dominate Ihe livestock market iu Uiis province have been ig. known to raise prices two dollars per hundred- c, weight inside of a few hours in order lo offset the compelilion of outside buyers who invade 'he market occasionally. If the price of six dollars j which was paid in Hie morning was honest, why Hie need of raising it two dollars by night. That is one of Ihe many illustrations which go lo dis- prove the argument that the consumer and pro- ducer cannot benefit at ihesuiiie lime. The farm- ers are not getting the prices and the consumers are paying the highest prices in years for what they eat. There is no doubt but Iliat some inter- ests are playing a hand in which they hold the four aces and the joker. 11 is time to hit them a blow, and the way lo do il is by the duty aiid destroying the privileges, which1 they were given >yilh the best of intentions and which thev have abused. OUR POINT OF YIEW Forecaster Foster predicls the worst storms of years during February and March. Congress and Parliament both in session and war in no wonder! "Hell will hold Wilson and myself before I is the remark allributed to President Huerla. He seems to be preity sure of himself, but probably Mr. Wilson would be obliged if he would speak for himself only. If high freight rales are shutling our coal out of the U. S markets, it looks as if Ihe railway committee of the Hoard of Trade had a problem facing them for solution. Anything we can do for our coal industry 13 a boost for the whole cilv. The city commissioners made no mistake in deciding against a reduction of present discounts on electric light bills. It is good business in ad- ministering public, utilities to give consumers the best possible service at rates which will just show n profit.
