Buchanan John To'rrance Managing Director Business Manager 1252 1224 NO FREE RIDES It seems to us that the practice of providing free transportation on the' street railway to delegates to conven- tions in tils city, is far from sound. It is from such sources we must ex- poet revenue lor the railway. Dele- gates don't expect free rides on a street railway any more than they ex- pect the city to pay for their accom- modation at hotels. The street rail- way should be conducted as a busi- ness proposition and every possible means of adding to the revenue should te utilized. P 'ICKED UP IN ASSING FOR THE BUSY MAM Hon. Scott has returned to Regina after a tour the U. S. Senator Gronua has been re- nominated by -the- Republicans of North Dakota. MR. BORDEN AS A HOMESTEADER A farmer appearing before the Farm Machinery Sale Commission at Shell- b.rbok, Sask.f concluded his evidence by stating that he could not help thinking that if-Premier Borden and some of his colleagues were.each giv- en a homestead and .a few hundred dollars and required to make good, they- would not be long in becoming converts to a policy of free imple- ments.. Unquestionably this farmer is right. -Mr. Bordeii and other public men Trpald find that manufacturing was much more profitably conducted than homes teading in the west, and yet the manufacturers get the bnlk of the favors from the government, and the farmers practically none. When the fanner fully realizes the treatment he Is receiving he will unite with his fel- lows and vote for ihis own interests, and then he will get consideration, and not until then.

To those wb-b invest in a mine property, iffioothness may characterize its. op- but is the exception rather than tiie rule. In Alberta and British Columbia there are a number of abandoned mines, where large eums of money had been "spent and whare the anticipations of successful operation were soon removed. The decision to close the mines at Hosmer is a case in point. The C. P. R: spent a lot, of money in developing this One. of the best plants in the west had been installed but it was of no avail. A few years' opera- tion proved that serious faults exist- ed, and it was deemed wiser to close down the mine than to waste money in operating. As a result the .town of Hosmer passes cut of existence. Men who had gone into business there will lose heavily, but they are simply meeting the fate more or less common to mining Depend- ence upon one industry never makes for the permanency of a community. This fact is substantially proven in the case of Hosmer. The First -Methodist church of St Thomas had a narrow escape from fire when a -blaze was discovered: in the organ motor.

It is the cultivation system every farmer should follow. Good farming methods pay. If you don't credit it, keep your eye on summer fallow crops and see for your- eclf.
