Let Tories Answer This SBNATOR GROXNA. of North Da- kota, who is one ot those fight- ing reciprocity in the U. S. Sen- ate, recently quoted some figures which had been furnished him by a grain buyer, George McLean, ot Sar- les, N. D., showing prices paid by the latter for Canadian and American wheat last fall. He buys Canadian wheat in bond, Importing It duty free to be ground for export. The prices on the American side were paid at aarles, three miles from the boundary line, and those in Canada various points within ten miles of the line. The respective prices were as fol- lows: American Canadian Wheat Wheat October October October 3, 1910 5, WIO 7, 1310 October 11, 1910 S7 9S 1.00 99 95 03 !U 9?

Some of (he papers are how-Hut; that tbe Board ot Trade conference at Macieod In Us effort to settle the strike was futile. This Idea is wrong. No one expected that tho situation, which has had the consideration of a capable conciliation" board for nearly three months, could bo definitely dci elded by any gathering in i few hours. The meeting did a lot ifjjocd in that it brought out and showed tie public through their representatives at the meeting the exact around on which each of the parties was aciirs- It cleared up some ciuutly polilis.

History repeats Itself with a few exceptions. When Sir Wilfrid l.anrler goes to tlie country this fall reciprocity will be the main plank of I his platform. Ho will he returned to power, but this lime instead of hav- ing to send delegations to Washing- ton' to negotiate a reciprocity treaty, Dili Tall will have one all ready sign- ed up waiting for him. Senator Cummins ot Iowa has been credited with being a believer in the annexation of Canada to the Uaited States. In his recent speech in the Untied States Senate, Mr. Cummins denied this explicitly. He said: "I want Canada's friendship, and I may as well say here, because I under- stand I have been quoted in that Do- minion as being In favor of annexing Canada to tho United States, that 1 am not In favor of annexing Canada to the United States; I am not In fa vor of annexing Mexico to the United States, or Cuba to the United States, or Porto Rico orj.be Philippines.

THE LETTER BOX Why They Come to the West not far to seek, and sets forth specific beyond SIR WILFRID lAURlER has said that the nineteenth century waa the century of the United States, but the twentieth century will'he the century of Canada. The statement was no'idle boast. It was the state- ment of a farsighted opinion rounded on a careful study ot Canada's resour- ces and trade conditions. Wne-tenth of the century is gone, but no one will have the temerity to nay that the pre- diction is not being fulfilled. And to the Canadian the fulfillment means more than to any other part ot Canada. It means the develop- ment of those resources whose possi- bilities no man has even been able to more than hint at. It has been es- timated that not more than one per cent, of the tillable land o! the West- ern provinces is under cultivation. And yet the West this year will pro- the estimates are correct.1, in the neighborhood of two hundred mill- ions of b'usheis of grain, thus en- trenching Canada more firmly than ever in her position as one of the leading grain producing countries of the world. The production of such a large crop in a country which is yet compara- tively young, seems to be a siep to- ward the fulfillment of Sir Wilfrid's prediction as to Canada's future. It is drawing tbe eyes ot all nations to this wonderful land. It is' a magnet which attracts settlers from every nation. And Canada extends, the hand of welcome and says "Come." Canada needs the settler, Every de- sirable immigrant Increases the na- lonal wealth by hunareds of dollars. Development means wealth, but for development the settler is an abso- lute necessity. Commenting on the reasons why the Canadian West has proved such n magnet to the American farmer, the Boston News Bureau layi they are instances which prove doubt that Western Canada is as .Mecca to the American farmer. It says: "A certain agriculturist lived twen- ly years in Kansas. Five years ago he bought ISO acres ot land at Pinch- er Creek, Two years ago he grew KOOO bushels of wheat oft 200 acres, and sold It for J5.600. Last year he raised 12.000 bushels off 250 acres and sold it for J10.000, or S5 cents a bush- el. His profits from 250 acres of wheat "in Alberta last year was great- er than all his profits from farming during twenty years in Kansas. This is the tale every American settler In Canada sends back. He is certain of a crop of winter wheat In Alberta of 40 to 60 bushels an acre, while In Kansas he was lucky if he harvested 12 to 14. Thirty bushels an acre in Alberta is a very poor crop; 4! is average. "The soil of Alberta and Saskatche- wan Is as rich as that ot Ohio and Indiana before overcropping, neglect and under-cultivation had done their worst. The climate of Alberta and Saskatchewan is superior to that of any state in the Mississippi valley for growth of wheat, barley, oats, hay and vegetables. Alberta and Sas- katchewan are In the same latitude and have a similar climate to Nor- mandy, Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Germany, whose beef, pork, poul- try, eggs, butter, milk and cheese are famous. No such vegetable gardens, meadows anil grain fields as theirs exist either in Southern Europe or the United States. "In twenty years the Canadian Northwest will be growing more wheat, and raising more hogs and cattle, than either the United States or Russia, and Canada will be a na- tion of Tory Inconsistency (Stratford Heraldi Good red British 'blood runs through the veins of Sir James, P.

Macdonald, and denounce him, too, ae a traitor, because he advocated reciprocity? MR. MOORE MISREPORTED Editor of The Herald: your issue of tonight I sec where you have inserted with head lines that I had said to one of your reporters that the miners want to re- turn to work, and that I was tired of hanging around. Well, I beg to contradict such state- ments, a: the only thing I really did say to a reporter when asked by him what I thought would be the'ultimate result of the strike was that probably there would be concessions on both sides before a final settlement. Trusting you will insert this as a correction, and oblige, Yours truly, L. MOORE. Got a Hearing Thore (Stratford Beacon) Mr. Lloyd George paid this great tribute to the House of Commons the other day in addressing the press jaliery: "I am a child of the House of Com- mons. I love it with all its institu- tions, and lam a firm believer In it. I believe It Is the finest assembly in the world. I shall never forget a time when I could not get a. hearing any where else. I escaped with my life before could say anything, and was That I shall never forget." The reference Is to the period of the Boer war when }lr. Lloyd George was against the current of public opinion. A FEW CRITICISMS Editor of The Herald: should like, through the med ium ot your paper, to call attention to what is, in myiopinion, a somewhat curious state I have noticed with a sense of mild surprise (it is too hot for anything stronger) that the contractors who are doing the storm sewer work have dumped thousands of tons of loose earth along tbe b'oule.yard on Rednath street. I have also noticed, at times, horses in delivery rigs, etc., grazing on the boulevards, while their driv- ers are delivering goods at various residences, and have also seen quite a number of men regularly taking their mid-day meals and siesta in the cool shade of the trees, and using the boulevard as a couch. I don't say allowed to say anything I liked here. they should ge i them do it! But what I would like to Comparison In Wheat Prices (Winnipeg tribune) U. S. senator jicComber, of North Dakota, in an article in the New York- Independent, quoting from the United states Bureau of Statistics, says that in 1909 the average price ot No. 1 Northern wheat in Minneapolis was and In Liverpool only 9cj more. In 1910 the average price in the two cities was precisely the snroe, although the actual cost of transpor- tation from Minneapolis to Liverpool is 15c. This, Senator McComber says shows that Liverpool does not fix the price so far as this particular grade ot grain is concerned. This ,s ,ixed by local demand in the United States, Ihe supply of this special grade being nsumclent to meet American local demand. Under reciprocity, therefore, fa'm- jrs in the Western provinces ot nda would have the benefit of buyers celling their wheat to competitors between Minneapolis and Livirnaol. ask is this; Why'are these people al lowed to damage the boulevards in this manner; whereas if any poor beg- gar of an ordinary citizen who helps, by the way, to Pfy for the upkeep of these beauty spots, walks across a boulevard and is seen by one of our guardians of order, he used to bailed he- fore the "beak" and lined the "usual three and One other litlle wall.
