In this connection three lines of amo the' openin to artificia of private from the. f gation have been followed aVid did Europe buy? How?

Huge Storage In Canada "Prom January to May there is an ion of wheat in all storage especially, at Port William really the Canadian want it. Canada does not export wheat. Europe imports it, and she im- ports it when she wants it. The ex- ceptionally high .export peal; In 1914, was at exactly the same fimd as' the exceptionally low figure on the price scale, and the greater propor- tion of our splendid 1913 crop, "was moved at the very lowest price reg- istered. Canada Only Country. "There is no other country in the world that sells as big a proportion of its crop on the lowest price of the I year as western Canada said j the speaker, and this irregular sys- j tern of marketing is costing Canada' a vast amount of money. I Concluding his address, Mr. Evans said "a great deal of our business is done on the assumption that Canada exported wheat to Europe.- We'.do not j export wheat to Europe; she'imports wheat from us. Our wheat can't go there unless they choose to take it, so, long as we have 110 facilities to handle it there. Yet in one period of eleven weeks we shipped and handled more wheat than all the importing .countries of the world purchased in that eleven weeks. We have the mechanical equip, j nienl. and this is the way we use it. j Is that good business? 1 would like to j ask some of you here to ask your-1 selves, if you used your plants the you are forcing the railways to j from that, time on there uge Jou think you were i falling to a comparatively dfll a successtui business.
