It Is step that has been too long delayed It hi a step Lhat should been. taten before conscription vas an noanced. Now Uiat H has been an- nounced, however. It shonld facilitate greatly, the enforcement of conscrip- tion, and It will do. so If Sir Thomas White Tilll boirtly announce If Jt In lax Is too light on large Incomes, Lt'wlll be increased .until Canada Is paying as much In ,o establish Eample markets.

WHAT ABOUT MARKETS.- sprint 'n m ljHd o HM rat foitowa: eTMnt for tome Umi. the minim aid elevitor In ferlor two or three." Of the.-professional mixing element ol the rralu trade the report .said that-" ft muSt.be evident that they "will benefit' by the operations of Ihe sample market, .as they, will secure Lhe; surplus "value In the" wheat ih4 is not of contract or the higtier com- mercJa'l' grades and some of Iho value of such :itheat ot contract grades as they, buy for .mixing purposes." Aay benefit ,thal- the farmer could derive Is largely problematical, QDd In any case'could affect only a very small-proportion of the crop. It is a matter'of common knowledge that the prices at'which our crop he sold Is determined by the surplus of wheat Canadian millers re- quirements, the competition of export- er? forcing He millers' lo pay at least export price Jor wheat. It Is there- fora a matter of obvious Importance to maintain the Integrity or" standard of our eiport grades, lie least im- pairment nf -.which Trill react unfav- orably on.the prices at which the en- tire crop will he sold. Now, it should be clear that, with well, patronized sample markets In operation, deterioration of the grades in "the bins of the public terminals must1 follow, because, to quote again rom ihe report o[ the Saskatchewan toyal Commission: "No system of In- pecllon coulfl for any Jenslh of time isure" lhat pvcry car graded out ot he inlilog elevators should be equal o at-least, the medium line of the It was: And the Euro- lean Imporfer and miller would qulck- y discover the deterioration and re- duce, their bids accordingly. Of this he report.previously cited says: "In far JOE the wheat they actually >oaght Is .concerned, this might opt he loo their reduced hliis would set Ihe price at which all toe undetefloratid grades In the country would be bought- Thus a present of surplus value would he made to the Canadian millers with every bushel ot vt-hc'it they bought. In order that some problematical Benefit might en- sue to Shippers ot a relatively small quantity of low grade or out of con- dition grain.1' In view ot the fact lhat estab- lishment of the sample market Is op- posed by the railways owing to its tendency to lie np rolling slocV. and Increasei the "delay In securing cars, and In ritw alio of ths fact that the farraera do not seem to be keen for the eitabllshmenl of the new method of-selling, It would appear to be poor polfcj on the pjrt of tho government to Uie plan at the present time.
