FINE HARVEST PROSPECTS ALL OVER THE PRAIRIES Winnipeg. July detailed sur- of crop conditions throughout western Canada removes all apprehen- sion that was felt because of the re- cent cool wave which struck the country and assurance of a record wheat crop. Conditions could hardly be more favorable. From 50 to 100 cent, of the wheat is jn blossom and indications at present jjoint to an early harvest. With the exception of two points where frost damaged lighter grains considerably and wheat very slightly, there is no, a detrimental effect from the cool wave.... Ol" 'reports received 81 per cent, announce conditions, which border on the perfect, while li) per cent, have been visited by more qr ess frost or other climatic conditions yhtch were not conducive suc- cessful ripening. While Ihere has generally been rnoi'e rain this year than for several seasons, a few districts are complain- ing of lack of moisture, while others have, had too much rain. The vast majority of sections have, however, enjoyed ideal conditions 'throughput the year. Western farmers appear to consider the cool wave as beneficial to the west.. During the hot spell which preceded it the srain was in- clined io mature too rapidly'and the cool spell has had the effect of fill- ing the beads and holding back the superabundant growth of straw which was earlier threatened. A general fear in certain sections is reported that should frost continue or the weather remain cold damage will cer- tainly result to wheat, but this fear appears to he. overridden by the up- ward tendency of thermometers this week. Damage from hail throughout (.lie entire west has been practically nil. The -largest 'consideration now be- fore the fanners and the transporta- tion authorities is the labor problem. With the removal of immigration re- H'trictions States immi- grants who for the harvest and the inducements which are being offered io residents of the far east and Pacific coast, it is expected thai an unprecedented number of workers will come in. While prospective em plovers and agents working for them a short time ago regiirdcd .the labor situation as acute, the prospects a now almost as promising as in oth _ (uarutM WBIH HOOD FLOURS-MADE IH MOOSE JAW 'IFTEEN MILLION BUSHEL CROP PREDICTED FROM 21 POINTS Slavery reports: "We have a larger acreage in crop in our district than ever before aud prospects look'bright or the largest yield."
