T.' Mayiie Daly removes one of Western Can- ada's foremost As po- lice magistrate of Winnipeg, he made an enviable record. He had the very necessary faculty of., finding out tlia good in men whom society called bad, and calling it into action. He awak- ened the spark of honor that exists in! the worst of men, and inspired them to be better. He always tried to serve the ends of Justice, having in mini} both the pubilc and the offender. He was prominent in all organized efforts to make bad men good and good men better. As a- public, official and a private citizen he carried on the same work alone, with eminent success. The loss o.f such a man is serious in any j communitly, and his place is. hard to I fill. T. Mayne Daly will long remain as the ideal which police magistrates in Western Canada will set before themselves. Alberta's Grain Crop ALBERTA has very close to two million acres of land linden crop this year, according to the government report. Last year the acreage was under a million and a quarter acres. With the prospects of a (bumper crop all over the province, It- will this, year take its place .am- ong the largest grain producers am- ong, the provinces and. states of thfl continent. The crop should run, count ing wheat, oats, barley, flax and oth- er grain crpps, between forty and fifty The Demand; AT the Borden meeting the state- ment was made that the-farm- iners had made no demand fop reciprocity, and that was one of the arguments offered, that the govern- ment had no mandate from the people to; negotiate _ the reciprocity agree- ment. The speaker surely could nev- er have read the demands made upon Sir Wilfrid La'urier at Ottawa, on De- cember 16th-last..- In.the following words, .the farmers, not only of the West', but also of the East, made their request to the prime minister: ''And in view of the favorable ip- proaches already made through Presi- dent Tail and the American govern- ment, looking towards more friendly, trade relations Canada and the United States, this memorial fakes form as; fojlows: "1.

Reciprocal Free Trade oHvvecn the two countries in all agricultural implements machinery, vehicles and parts of each of these; and in the ev- ent of a favorable arrangement being reacheM, it be carried into efteot through th'e independent action of the respective governments, rather than by the hard and fast require-, nients of a treaty." .Those words were in the document by D. W. McCuaig, president, and Drury, secretary of the Ca- nadian council of Agriculture, the gov- erning body .elected by all the fann- ers' organizations of Canada. Tho document was-preparedr at the con- vention of the farmers at Mie capital and read In their hearing in the cham- ber of the House of Commons, and ac- cepted 'bj" them all. "When.public men will come before a public audience, and make such statements they must, think either that the people do not read or that their memories are very short. Perley's Misconception GH. PERLEY, 51. P., has a pe- culiar idea of the agricultur- al possibilities of this coun- try. 'In his speech at the Borden meeting on Saturday evening, he said time was not far distant when the towns and cities of Canada1 would consume all the.surplus grain raised-in the -West. He must look for a phenomenal development of the cities rind a remarkably slow' devel- opment of tile agricultural industry. In the West this year there is a pros- pect of a crop of at least, two hundred million bushels of wheat, which is al- most double of Ihe best previous re- cord, two years ago. During those two years there has been considerable growth In the population of the East- ern towns and cities, but they have by no means doubled. Mr. Perley would do well to look into the situa- tion in the United States before mak- ing any such statement again. In that- country there is a much smaller wheat growing area than in Canada, in fact, it is less than one-third as large. Yet the farmers of the States are able at the present time'to Jusfj aboilt meet the .demands of the Am- .erican market, although they have ninety millions of people to feed. .Tak- ing their position as a basis, Canada wiirhave to have three hundred mil- lions of people, to feed before its' wheat production will be all used at home. Then, too, Mr. Perley mtisfc consider that gradually the wheat growers of the -United States are go' ing put of business owing to their be- ing nnatole to compete with the Can- adian: -farmers. Recent statistics show that while Minnesota was the largest wheat producing state in the union, it has been passed by North Da- kota. This lias 'not' been due to any increase of production In Dakota, but to: a decrease'in Minnesota. There is 'a large-demand ?or Canadian wheat in the'States now, and with the de- crease .of their production, coupled with the Increase of their population, there will, be a steadily increasing de- mand for the wheat grown on this aide of the line. There is absolutely no chance of the Canadian market de- manding the total production of the wheatfields of this country, and the object of reciprocity Is to give the Canadian farmer access to the mar- kets of the United States, which will be steadily Increasing. passed.

By tho way. there has been no an- nouncement from either Calgary or Medicine Hat for several days rc-l gardius the location of the car shops. Have they given up all idea of getting them, or is all the real estate sold? The Twenty-firth battery of Field Artillery certainly made a good re- cord at camp this year, and showed that when it comes to turning out a first class military organization, Leth- brldee men are there. Major Stewart deserves all the congratulaJ tions he has received and then some. Mr. Borden objected at Macleod to being told that he was an obstruc- tionist, but at Lelhbridge he an nounced his purpose of forcing the government to submit .the'reciprocity agreement to the people -before being adopted. In the opinion of the av- erage man, he can do this only by oh struction. The men who are 'buying Leth- bridge suburban property are showing a strong faith ill the revival of busi- ness activity in the city, and in a rapid increase of population. If pre- sent prospects are realized, as there jvery reason to 'believe they will be, their faith is not misplaced. Watch grow. Others The Water's Foamy (Grassy Lake Pilot.)
