Since the dry spell of June was broken'on July 4th thera have beet rains every week which, with the warm weather, brought the crops'along very rapidly. Tha result Is now that it Is hard to keep from under-estimating the crop, and Instead of talk of a short hear talk of possible car shortage. All of which is very cheering. The is. not -cut but it Is far enough advanced that we can begin to get ready for the harvest and atter- tte-harVest. As regards the harvest ner, In Halifax, was dropped from'tbe parly ticket because of his support of Union Government.. It must not overlooked, however, that Premier Murray supported Union Government i and.renewed coundcnca has been placed In him. From the national standpoint the N'ova Scolia result would indicate lhat the old Conservative party is dead but that Liberalism Is still a llv- Icg force. Whether the newly government at Ottawa with a Con- servative leader can carry the Col- chester, Nova Scotfa, seat in the election where Hou. F. B. McCurdy seeks endorsement, is a problem. Should the new minister be defeated it Soes not look as though Mr. Moish- en could nnd a seat for a Cabinet Minister in Nova Scotia. The significant features In tlje Nova Scotia elections are (I) The strength developed by labor and the farmers. (2) Tbe obliteration of tho Conserva- lives and (3) the maintenance ot its control ot provincial affairs by tbe Liberal party. The development of a new political movement In Nova Scotia, always in the past hostile lo new political movements, indicates ibet in a Federal election tho I.abor and 'Farmers groups will sup- port In all the provinces, Tvith the possible exception, of Quebec, and in all may dominate the sit- uation. Certain !t Is lhat from the western provinces and Ontario, a powerful representation of Farmers and Labor Tvill be sent to Ottawa.

Surely, if we are "going" to make and worth five limes as much as it s. today, there ought not to be any lifflculty Iu financing the venture. Another matter that was of the ut- most Importance, to the future of Southern Alberta, was stock raising, can'only have mixed farming, and we can only have successful stock raising from the establishment of climate. Irrigation Systems Proceeding to the discussion of the irrigation situation as It exists at pre- sent, Sir. Buchanan pointed out tnat at the present time there were about one million acres ot land actually Irrigated, or irrigible from works act ually constructed; a further area of approximately acres Irrlgible from works already designated ant authorized for construction, and still further area of acres be tiered lo be susceplible to irrigation by works which have been tentalivc ly planned, and -the construction o which may be-autnorized as soon as the necessary financial1 arrangmeuts can bo made. Tho irrigated, area around 'Leinbriuse includes approxi nialely acres of land, am about acres of this area wa: Irrigated during the season of 1019. Mr. Buchanan mentioned terns.- established by the Canadian Pacific Railway "Company along the! main line between Calgary-and Medi- cine Hat; and the Canada Land A Irrigation Company system north of the city of Lethbridge. in connection with the latter, it was mentioned that the coinpany owns something over acres of land; some acres of which can be irrigated from The congregations of St. Andrew's auij Shakespeare Norlb have extended a call to Hov.

They interested Ihemselves In the legislations to cor- rupt them, charged the speaker. They then built a tarriff wall and put up their prices above lhat so compote.wilh foreign trade and take money from tbe farmers, alleged the works now constructed or neariug complelion. Mention was made of the consider- able development of small irrigation schemes in the Cypress Hills region. There are some 200 privately owned irrigation schemes in that section of the country which provide for ihu irrigation of approximately small B' press Hills, >lenly of Irrigated areas. The view held by Ihe Hon. Dr. Tolmle, Minister ot Agriculture, was that Irrigated areas established throughout South- em Alberta would be the salvation of stock raising, as'they would provide food to carry the stock over the years when pasture'was poor, and the natural supply of food not available. Stock fanning- Ihrough irrigation, would increase tho humus of the soil I and would get rid of weeds, plant dis-' easts, and insects, and overcome to a great extent ihe soil drifting prob- lem. In r-onclusiou, Mr. Buchanan urged that irrigation development should be considered from the broad slatesman- like standpoint, aud not from a.paro-i cliial view. H had bceu sugge'sted I that tbe people who had invested their all in land and buildings in Ihe dry areas should move out to somo other sectioh'of the country. .That woulii mean lhat those people would I tlcajly be ruined, and. would have to1 start .life all over, again. The stales-1 manlike policy was to riiovo In Ihe water, and. the farms and buildings, and other inveslincufs would be sav- ed, and the -country as a en: riched. The great need of Canada at the present moment was (o develop ils rich natural resources. Tlie country had heavy fluunciai obligations to meet, and it was only by creating all the wealth possible out of our re-' sources that we could meet these obli- gations. Irrigation would certainly enrich largo areas of land, and make the soil that'is fertile produce annual- ly much wealth In grains, .hays, live- ils, as It had beon Half a million .dollars Is tivo estimate fb the loss to fruit in the Niagara bell as a' result, of last week's storm.

THE ELECTION RESULT IN NOVA SCOTIA Liberalism is still dominant in It will soon be time for the youthful report to rise up nnd remark that "tho hum of tho binder la heard In tho land." We fail to see where the Ottawa government can get much encourage- ment out of the Nova Scotia result.'' Nova Scotia. The old Conservative party is 'merely a relic of the past, electing bill.'one representative. While the old Liberal parly Is as strong as ever, Ihe old Conserva- tive party Is replaced as an official opposition by Labor and tho Farm- ers. This shows lhat the new group movement is making headway In the EasL and that the Conservative party is tho chief victim. Tho Murrey Oov- ernBlent 1s strongly entrenched In tho seaside province. It has given good government and the people aro pleas- ed with It. There are aomo striking defeats, however, of leading Liberals, two Cabinet Ministers and Col.

First, because a good deal of was not irrigible, and second, be- j ause there was only a certain amount i f waler available for irrigation. In lie southern seclions of. Alberta nnd laskalchewan he understood that iero were from ten to fifteen million cres of laud suitable for Irrigation, >ut his Information was that under Host favorable circumstances, it was lot likely that much more than five million acres of land coutfl bo Irri- gated by the gravity systems.
