There has been a !ol of criti- cism levelled at the r.F.A. president for "allowing himself lo he used as the tool of the Canadian Covernmcnt In beating the Canadian fanners out ot the increased price for their wheat which it would Inive brought had it been sold in the open market in the usual may without government inter- ference." D. W. Warner of Edmon- ton was one of tlie chief critics of President Wood End the Canada Wheat but when ihe smoke had all cleared away President Wood came through with colors flying. Tho point is probably not uf so much Interest to Southern Alberta farmers for the reason that thoy had little wheat to sell from the 1913 crop, but as the wholo question of wheat price is one debated wherever farm- ers meet it may bo well to set fcrlh -gome of the arguments of Mr. Wood In combatting the attacks on him. The main argument ot" tho Wheat Board's critics was that wheat in Canada was fetching plus what- ever the- participation certificate might be worth, whilo U.S. farmers sailing Northern hnr.1 wheat were getting ?3 to 53.2.-, per bushel. That has been the hard nut to crack. The1 farmers wanted to know why the Wheat Hoard was noi selling Canada's hard wheat there while Ibe high prices were going, thus reaping a bcnefil of HO cents to il.lll per bushel for the Canadian farmer. Mr. Wood marie the answer easy ihe U.S. govern- ment put on an embargo against Can- Adian wheat anil the Canadian Wheat Hoard could not L-rjIl ii there without toeing ahle to ship it. That Is the big point tanners aie prone to forget. Tint in December when the small amount of hard raised by U.S. farmers and needed by U.S. mill- era to keep up their flonr standards had been exhausted, the L'.K, govern- ment took off tho cmkirgo, hoping that the Canada Wiical Thnini would rush its supplies In the I'.ri, market and thereby break tlir- galling Canada's at a low figure after the V'.S. farmers had sold all where j he hail been invi'.j'I by Iho nalttk-M l rxeciii've to speak nnd wnor; FOIHO I Ililiigs. in fact many things happened."
