W. -A, Buchanan John Torrarice Managing Director Business Manager NEEDS GOVERNMENT RECOGNI- TION There is no industry is sub- ject to so many vicissitudes, orer which there cannot be an individual control, as agriculture. This is true of all countries. The farmer is, more or less, the creature of the elements; when they are propitious lie flour- ishes, when they are adverse his labor correspondingly suffers. It is true Uiat the following of scientific meth- ods may combat the vagaries of na- ture. But even here nature is al- ways the mistress, and discounts the efforts of artificial methods. And this leads us to the considera- tion of, the agricultural problem, as it lies before us at the present time "at cur very, threshold. To many of the men of the soil the season will prove a discouraging one. It Is not the fault of ihe country. It is the force of untoward circumstances which, though not occurring in regular rou- tine, may be sufficient to sap the hope from many a is not buoy- ant enough to retain it. Our immigration policy is decidedly an agricultural one. It entails large expenditure iu bringing in what is considered tlie right lype -of immi- grant, tie agriculturist. But in.' this the policy is only a halfway one. To lie successful it should look to meth- ods ot retaining those who are brought ill! as'a happy and contented people. Particularly at a time, lite the pres- when nature has been in its pro- verbial flckle mood, it behooves the government to look into conditions as they exist, and come to the aid of farmers. What is needed at the pres- ent moment is the devising of ways and means whereby government aid can he afforded farmers who have teen unfortunate. 'Whether it be tie form of government loans, or other means, the., matter needs the recog- nition of toe authorities. If the principle of assisting the C. X. R. was that it was a matter of national economy, then, .surely, of equal, if not greater national import- ance, is tie necessity of. helping out an industry which is practically the foundation of the nation's prosperity. The setback, it IsTrrie, fs.oniy tem- porary. The future As-promising. But that the promine be fulfilled needs present remedial action.

True, there are forced sales which do 'not indicate at all the true value, and there are at times reasons man peculiar situation may pay more than a property may be worth, but taking it by and Irirge, there cannot 'be a better indica- tion of the value of the property than what willing buyers, who do not have to buy, win pay and'what will sellers, who do not have to sell, will take for property.'
