' The engagements are becoming more frequent and more exten-iTe. ActlTlty jor the first time in tome montlis Is noted on the St Quen-tiB front which has been taken ove^y Ihs.' British from the French. LAst week's attack by the Qermans along the Ypres front In Belgium was a dismal fallufd, although If'wafi originally ' fanned upon a large scale.

As to all productlvd'Implements/and the fuel and attachment^ necessary to operate those Implements, there is every warrant to reduce their cost to the limit so as to enable our farmers to success fully .carry out the production program that Is demanded of them. A protective tariff that enables the manufacturer to keep up the price is a menace' to production and that is the situation. In connection ,wlth agricultural implements. Our farmers realize the.great need for.revenue In order to meet our war,obligations and they win not be unronjionable in their'demands.-.. They do -expect, however, either the complete removal ot the duties upon agricultural implements or the removal of all the duties except the 7 1-2 per cent.'war duty imposed tor war purpoies.. They also look to the government to evolve a policy that will generally result in a complete all roundredftctlon of the tariff, but we are sure they realize the gov ornment's serio.ns''taxation problems and do not anticipate the immediate adoption of such a sweeping change. All our tariff changes for the present 8houl4 be Inspired by a consideration ot the immediate war needs. Productive implements are a necessity for war winning and should bo made available to the producers nt the low-eat possible cost. In ^thls conneetion Roderick McKen zle, secretary ot the Canadian Council of Agriculture, in a letter to the Winnipeg Free Press'says: "Ot the two hundred thousand farmers of the prairie provinces, probably not more than fifty thousand can purchase and operate tractor engines -all the rest of them require the latest improved farm implements so --It. -h'-c- PICKED__ A recount is being; denianded in the ,11.
