Frank Oliver Forth the Reason for the Pre-emption Privilege In explaining clauses of the new the preemption land bill in the House of Commons, Hon. Frank Ol- iver dwelt at some length on the need of a 320 acre farm. Part of his .ad- dress is as follows: "When the system of surveys of stands to reason that if a man can only farm one-half his land in each j tue sameeople wlio would not be satisfied with u farm of 100 acres, people who lave farmed on a large scale in Io- wa, or Minnesota, who sell their lands at big prices to our-coun- try, not to tie -themsolves up to n small patch of land but to acquire a argc .area, whcro they can farm at a satisfactory profit. These men were largely attracted to Canada by rea- son of the fact that they could get a free quarter section, and, adjoining it, what they considered a cheap quarter section of railway land. That fact lias had a very material, effec in the settlement of our country so far aB it has gone. But I have sak to the House that we bar acres of railway land, and we hav disposed of about acres o homestead land. Tlift choice of the homsteaders has been very much that of the railroader. That is the rail- j roader chose what he thought was j.ihe Ix'st part of the country, that ly- i ing bjtween the dry prairie to the south .and the wooded country to the north, and the done Color, Flavor, Fragrance the strong points of Daily Herald Market Place Wbei uytkfof U sdi JK rcat place it in tUt cotaM.

No Railway Lands to Buy So, to a great extent, the even- the Northwest was first undertaken, than a farm c our settlement in advance, easterly part, toward the and north, of any settlement in the adjoining United Mr. In the United States th'o 100 acre farm which had been adopted as standard in the prairie states of the West was us in our West my ern prairie as In Ontario a 100 acre farm was the standard, and prob- ably that is the case in the eastern scientifi part of the United States; "but they drawn, did not consider 100 acres sufficient in the prairie state and they adopted 160 as the standard. Our survey of the West was based upon the idea that 160 acres is-the proper size for a prairie farm, and the experience of the older settled portions of our western prairies, shows. that to be the proper siite. But natural" conditions change somewhat as you go further west. In Iowa and Minnesota a ICO acre farm is a fair sized farm; but when we get to Nebraska and Dakota 160 acres cease to be sufficient, according to the experience of the present day. And as there is only an imaginable line between Canada and the United States in the west, the salne natural conditions which require a farm to be of a large area in the more west- ern provinces of the United States operate in our own prairie west. In the states where the 160 acre" farms are the standard, there are adequate and regular rainfalls, and it is possi- ble to crop the rich prairia land from year to year without cessation. But. as settlement spreads westwards into the country where the rainfall is not so' regular, it was found that the at the land every year re- sulted in getting no crop at all during the dry seasons., A different system of farming had then to be; adopted, and the farmers adopted the .method of planting only one-half their land each year and summer fallowing the remainder. So that instead of having to plough his land in the the had melted, and the .frost had come out of the ground, and then putting his seed into the .loosened uplands which the spring .winds had dried out, with the result that in dry years there was no crop, he was able, by summer fallowing the land, to put in his seed the following spring year, lie must have twice as much land if he is going to raise as much crop. Therefore, a farm of 320 acres j numbered sections in the country of in the western part of the prairie re-j rajiway iami grants are settled gion is no. larger'as a moneymaker than a farm of 160 acres in the more Ram Tea is sold only in Lethbridge by THE BENTLEY CO. LTD. LINK ARBITRARY Foster: Where would the. Minister draw the line? Mr.. I did not propose to draw any line, but the criticism of hon; friend and some others have compelled me to draw one. The line I draw is an arbitrary and not a scientific one, but a line had to be rawn. Mr. Sam Hughes: Is it not a fairly scientific one too, taking the altitude into consideration? Mr. Oliver: I think there is fair ground for the line .Jbeing drawn where I propose. But that is a mat- Notice RUNCHEBSli STOCKMEN on by homesteaders, and today, if we expect any great influx of settlers, though there still remains some of intervening between the odd- numbered sections of the railway land grant, the new settlers must largely go into the prairie of the south kert of C.

Further west again, in the foothills, where the "altitude is still greater, instead of summer fal lowing and growing of sprung grain being adopted the system of growing winter wheat'is adopted. And the re suit, so far as acreage is concerned or into the wooded country of the J for orth. If they go to the prairie land of the south, where there- are no odd numbc-red sections in -the hands of the railway companies, they must be restricted to one-quarter section un- less we adopt some other principle or policy of dealing with our lands. NoWi we believe that would be a a very great detriment to settlement in that part of the country. We be- lieve that the conditions there, be- ing such as I have described, a 320 acre farm is one of fair average size and means should be offered the new settler to acquire it from the KJQ horses, vu town of population, good school, coun- try well settled.

DRY FARMING The fact is that there are today millions of acres of land under sue cessful cultivation in Dakota and our west which, ten or fifteen years ago, were practically ,given up as not suitable, simply because people did not know how to farm it. But it ,vhere the rainfall is uncertain, in order to make a farm successful two acres are aa necessary as one acre is where the rainfall is certain.
