ARRANGE AT ONCE FOR-HARVEST HELP What if beins done to systemati- cally provide harvest help for the fanners in Southern This is a matter that should not be left until the last minute. It is important that provision should ie made at this mo- xnent.to have the required number of men "available for the farmers when the Ojarvest rush commences. Only recently the1-Herald published infor- mation from many points in the coun- try iriiwUry to Leth-hridge, and. it was evident that a great many men would be required on the farms this fall. A municipality like Lethbridge, where there is a considerable number of unemployed, should endeavor now lo place these men on farms. It IB ijire Eaid Important thai the unemployed in the repeating: immediate country should be given the. first opportunity of engaging in harvest work, and some systematic endeavor ought to be made to ascertain the actual number of local wen available for farm work, and once a. Hat of this kind is secured, efforts should.be-made to get in touch with farmers and have these men placed. The time for action is the immediate moment, and not when the rcrop is ready to harvest, ft might foe a good plan for the executive of the United Farmers of Alberra to confer the municipalities where there IB RICKED UP IN SSING [ion.

Stacking Grain' -.Mr. Dunham then explained the ad- vantages of stacking the grain, point- ng out that, in this part of tae coun- try it could be stacked to advantage p threshed at any lime during the winter months without any danger to the ojialilF, and the great benefit lo be derived is that the farmer does not then have to have a largo body men to thresh at any one time, but can thresh with a small crew at any 1'J particular time he desires. A farm- er can stack his grain, and then go on with the fall plowing; and then tiitul his grain at. bis own conven- ience, when the roads are dry asd Frozen.

In order to bring that, about you must first consider question of how thp hnurt really; a brbader- outlook that to consider just busi- ness.

He has to finance expenses think, undoubtedly, by better returns to the farmer and whatever is bene- ficial to him is reflected', on business generally- Now, T believe in this with the stacking and the storage of _i- in connection with the harvest; and it he ewes an amount of money, .some forbearance has to- exercised in the collection of these debts, but the point, as far as we are concerned as businessmen, is this Thafc if the farmer is absolutely forces to throw his crop upon the market, '-be the price high or low, in the long run, H, as I say, we are to live here, in the long run we shall suffer along with the farmer, and it is in fact not good business to do anything to interfere country'we have been strangers to eauh other, we have not had colaff- deuce in cacli other, the.btisDicss man in the farmer, and many ia fact have net had confidence in our- selves. In farming and business the strenuous ftimes we have passed through have -shaken out the weak- lings and the quitters, and .those of us who are left are here- to stay and to live, and we should see-to'it that we make conditions liveable to 'our- sdlves and to others, and see that we do not sacrilicc our patrimony by unwise dealings with people outside. You have heard, prohaolf, of the re- port published by a grain company! in the old country showing that-the net profits over the year gave 38 per cent; on the capital invested. J think- that speaks for itself. Some oj that money should have been held in" Caii- ada, and found its vray into our grain growers' pockets. Now here is the position: arc here now; our in- vestments are made ths farmers are cultivating better than ever-, before there is belter summer-fallowing. H you fipoke to a farmer two or three years ago about that, he would make French Legion of Honor, Induced Mr. you the answer that it was good Herring to enlist." wough in theory, and that the .fit-; grain on the farm, but rather is ii good do all we can to help in that direction. Now, there is this difference between our system of business -and banking, ami thai of the United States. A number of bankers .might meet there with, a number of wholesalers, and agree in a .certain line of action, but here we "have you gentlemen who represent the bankers, and the implement men, who have their various offices down east. We are only the local men, and all that we can do in a matter of this kind is to think it carefuHy ,for ourselves and pass on such recom- m'endations as we may see fit and have them considered by the financial heads down east or elsewhere. We are in possession of the facts, and it is our duty to study these, and to pass pn our conclusions to those peo- ple who have the giving of Ihn in- structions, As I said at the start, I do not think we can come lo anything lie- finite or arrive at any settled con- tfusion, but it is perfectly clear to all of us' that .if one set of creditors presses unduly upon the farmer or presses ino're than the others, the apple-cart is upset. Now, similar lines, and all agree to trear the farmer so that he thall finally get into veryxgood shape, wiien it wih-be tor the good o? all of us. Now, T think c j with regard to that government relief money: it should he made a point that j at all eventfl. If we do nothing else we refrain from anything to pre- vent any farmer who .wishes.-to pay even one of that money, should refrain" from doing anything whatever to prevent him from .making that re-payment. .1 know, from farm- ers' meetings that Mr. Dunham and-I have attended, that many bf them feel this way, that it 'would establish their crijdlt and th.e country. It would makefile government will- ing- to spend wlse they might not-Vdo, if'' we good care of and "-re-pay that money.
