We have heard much italk of the difficulty farmers have in -directly reaching the consumer with his produce. This is not altogether confined to Lethbridge, t^and the remedy suggested is^everywhere the same as shown toy. the following which appears, in.the*.Minneapolis Tribune: . -i"A chronic complaint-of the farmer is, and always has been, that the middleman and distributor absorbs an undue share of the legitimate profit of his industry. 'There was an astonishing story told, the other day, by a farmer, who says he was obliged to- tbejobber.- He then followed them to, the city; and. found that they .were sold, by.t^e,. retailer at the rate of $4.80 per bushet! ''Thi8,'-'if true, was an extreme incident.- The difference between the price-received by the fanner and the price paid-by the consumer is seldom so great-as th}s,. yet it is very frequently-too great. Truck farmers, near cities which have open markets, can collar' -a portion of the jobber's and retailer's profits toy going-to the expense of renting a market' Btall, hauling their,, stuff to the city, and; taking the risk'of perishable products left on their hands." -Clearing the Air, -*D*Y .ITS communication to Mr. As-: Fj auith^the Grain Growers' Association of Manitoba has given a finish to the staggering food tax policy of Mr. Bonar Law. Coming from �the. very men whom -the: Unionist, leader's- scheme ;of � Imperial 'Preference .was intended as-a sop toward binding the attachment of the Dominion to the. Motherland, the British public have become enlightened to the true state of feeling. \ � "We wiBh the^ people of Great,^ Brit-' aln/': says the document, "to distinctly understand that 'we have no desire to-place any burden upon the British consumer for our benefit. We are 'quite willing to face the world's competition iii the. British -/markets}; .and iare; anxious only; that her .tnanufac-'tures should be given free access to ;the Canadian market." At a time i'whenXJanadian/loyalty appears to be ;a subject of discussion in England, ,?and'When a bishop, of the Elstablished iChurc^ finds, it necessary to use his good offices' In extolling that virtue as present here, the message of the Western-farmers will tend to clear the air once for all. :,;-Were it not that we are aware that a .good many of the people in-the British,-fair; proof that tie Canadian winter is not all of Arctic origin, - Even/Bruil^ is a booster.

Oh yes, fair Amelia, the people and newspapers which suffer so extremely from American nightmare all tumble over themselves to take the American's money. A visitor from Massachusetts praises the Irish. He intimates that they have been promoted from' policemen and are now mayors down his way. The effete east still appreciates a good thing.

Everybody's doin'.it. ,-Test (Toronto Globe)r Tine Conservatives who-went to '.he country eighteen months ago.with the demand that later on the" people should be consulted on the navy issue, seem to have^made up their minds that no good and much harm might come to the Borden government from a general eleotion with the navy question as its central feature. The'.Innocent Rogers',-(Morning JUbertan)  Hon.

Her power to decide., for herself is not complete. So long as this is the .case, it is hardly, consistent to talk of 'Imperial partnership," or of: the possession of local autonomy. It may have been necessary for a colony in its earlier stages, but for.Canada' in the year, 1913 one may well doubt-its need or Ha tolerance. "For Canada to demand a real Supreme Court would be in no sense a repudiation of. .the Imperial bonij. of, partnership. It', would be in, no sense a Nationalistic or anti-British appeal. It would be rather the demand ojt-. a" self-respecting country, grown old enough and wis6" enough to know its own mind, to realize its own needs and to settle Its own internal affairs. ..Tk? present possibility of appeal to the British Privy Council is not a bond of union.  Canada's loyalty rests up1-on no such ^foundation, but rather upon the sentiment and devotion-of' the free. If this relationship is amended in the Interest of a more complete au: tonomy, the real spirit of Imperialism: will spread and dominate this country." It will, take about one more such judgment as Ibat by which the Privy Council, reversing the plain intention-of parliament and the unanimouB .finding of the -Supreme Court, obliged the Dominion of .Canada to implement in cash,. instead- of by additional guarantees,, the;, iaroceeds of the; G.

The belief t^at our'^Supre,n^e Court should be the final court-for ?all Canadian litigation, unless constitutional in its chp. acter, is rapidly spreading. Some years ago when;a small group of papers, wtiloh. included the Free Press, advanced this view there was the usual outcry that .for Canada to take such a course, would be to strike a feP blow at the solidarity of the Empire, and so forth.and so on-the argument is known to >us all by now. The opinion that' Canadian law afaould be interpreted finally by Canadian judges was advanced in parliament recently without creating any appreciable degree of. consternation. The public is getting used to the idea; and finds it good. As the Ottawa Citizen, the Conservative newspaper at the capital, says: "ft is surely rather a. strain, on Con-ada's national self-respect to-toe thus placed.
