Our survey of the West was based upon the idea i thai 160 acres is the proper size for I a prairie farm, and the experience of i the older settled portions of our i western prairies, shows that to be i the proper size. i But natural conditions change i somewhat as you go further west. In Iowa and Minnesota a 160 acre I farm is 2 fair sized farm; but when i we get to' Nebraska and Dakota 160 j acres cease to bo sufficient, according who sow without ploughing! ,u but my hon. friend will not, up here say that that is tlK- br.-t fay to raise fall wheat. 1 iuive seen swing winter wheat even in October in the southern part if the prairie country, in the district :iuu may hon. friend (Mr, Herrou) represents, anil, possibly these men a i-rop.

What I say is that in praciica, in the westr-rn part of the country j where the rainfall is uncertain, in order to make a farm successful two j acres are as necessary as one acre is where the rainfall is certain. Will Encourage Now, the need of a farm of 320 acres in our prairie west 'has been met. so far, by tlu- possibility of the settler who has siomesteaded a quar- ter section purchased the adjoining quarter section of railway land. It is because of the possibility of his doing this that we have, been able to attract from the United tSates such largf numbers of well to do farmers who would not be satisfied Calgary. most inter-! estinir rase heard before the recent was the appeal against the decision of Chief Justice Sifton. convicting K.
