Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta t^OE EIGHT THE LKTimniDCR DAU.Y OF INTEREST TO PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (Some Nuts to Crnck by the U. F. A., bj- S. S. Dunham, Ex Vlce-Pr*s.) It Is not thp volume of the leplsla-Uon that the U. F A. obtains, but rather the qtmllty that will measure Its success in Hint regard. It Is essentially Important therefore that the uots that ore passed at the behest of the organization should be sound and well considered. So far the organisation has little to he ashamed of In this repnrd. Mnny of the far reaehins nets passed by the provincial legislature during the life of the U. F. A. have been nets-, advocated by the organization. Notably among those acts are the acts providing for the "Alberta, Co-operative Elevator Company." "The Direct Legislation Act." from which come t'io "Liquor Act" or 'Prohibition." "The Woman Suffrage Act." "The Hospitals Act." and others of equal importance, but there were serious mistakes made in several of those acts, and others that the U. F. A. have stood for have not been so successful. Such, for instance, is the "Muncipal Hall Insurance Legislation." and because of the great multiplicity of more or less Ill-advised resolutions that under our practise must be presented by the executive to the government, vre have failed to get legislation on many mirior measures that are of first Importance to the welfare of the {arming communities. I will mention but one as an example, and that Is. a revision of the exemption law so as to provide that 4 horses should be exempt instead of 3. tinder our system of farming, the farmers use 4 horses. This Is his standard'team and it one of these can be taken away from him. the exemption is of little value to him. and we have repeatedly included this resolution among those passed from time to time In the Convention, and have repeatedly made the request that the laws be amended, without result. Indeed it would seem that If there should be any exemption law at all. it should cover and protect the usual necessary farming outfit, and the writer is not sure that the time has not come when the small tractor and the Ford car are not articles that should be included within the list of those that are exempt to the farmer, that Is If we grant the right and the expediency of exemptions at all. The point Is that if the principles of exemption are to be applied. It should be applied to the farmer in such a way as to protect him in the necessary things to run his vocation, and there Is no reason -why this ar&endment should not be granted, but because of the resolution being drawn.' as it were, in a mass of resolutions not so wisely conceived, it fails to get the attention that it deserves, Now the present scheme for Municipal Hail Insurance fundamentally is sound. However, >when the plan was presented to the board of directors, the writer opposed one clause, and that was that the farmer who wished to withdraw be compelled to do so each and every year. There are extensive districts in the province that are not addicted to hail to any great extent, and many districts are much less addicted to hail than others are. We will take for example the Peace Hiver country. It Is believed that while this district may be subject to frost, it is not supposed to be badly affected by hail storms. Indeed the hail loss is liable to be very light. Such Is also true of many other places ot lesser area, such as the district west ot Cardston. These districts hare their drawbacks chiefly  from-frost, .and .is' it right and Just that they should pay the same flat rate as the districts do whose chief losses come from hail* And should the farms of those districts neglect each year to withdraw from the hail insurance charge* that he should be subject thereto? We think not. We think that if any farmer- or any municipality deslreB to be permanently excluded from operation 'of the Hall law that they should hare a. right to do so, and this is one of the things that the members of the TJ. F. A. in those districts should look after at once, and if they agree with the writer they should make themselves heard, either by resolution or otherwise. Establishment of district^ conventions would aid very materially in ob� taming the local view point on mat: ters of this kind, ' and' of - making *,f laws with provisions id, apply' to the special needs of local  interest, but whatever we do when we recommend a plan as a basis for legislation,, that plan should be so well considered as to fit not merely tho main body, such as in this case are engaged In grain raising and are located tn tho part of tho province when? the loss by hall Is the chief source of loss, but should provide for the interest of our membership who may bo engaged in dalryinjt and mixed farming, and whose losses occur from other causes. It Is only legislation of this character that can do justice to all and give satisfaction .to all concerned. Remember that our motto Is "equity." Probably no other single word in the English language could fit our objects so completely. Equity to all concerned. Equity as between the Individual farmers and equity as between the farmers, as a class, and all other Interests. It is really a happily selected motto, and the organization In Its action should keep It ever In view, and all legislation advocated by the organization should be permeated by this principle. x At the recent Convention, a farmer west ot Cardston engaged in mixed farming and dairying, made the statement that for 22 years in that locality he had not been damaged by half. It he had been asked if during that time he had been injured by frost, his answer would have been decidedly different. Now should this farmer neglect to withdraw from the operation ot the hail law in any one year, would it be equitable that he should pay a share of losses to which his experience has taught him that he is not subject? U Is hoped that the legislative assembly in the construction of the act �wiU correct what the writer considers as an Inequitable demand in the recommendations. (To Be Continued.)

Outside offices ot the commission are maintained at Regina, Toronto and Quebec City. The Seed Branch staff of seed inspectors and the chain of government elevators, under the control of the board of grain commissioners of the Department of Trade and Commerce, ico-operate with the Seed Purchasing Commission in the inspection, cleaning, storing, sacking and distribution ot seed supplies. The grain trade also assists in purchasing on the "basis of small brokerage commissions. The purchases ot the Commission are financed by appropriations made by Orders-ln-Council, and proceeds from sales are deposited to the credit of the Receiver General. The Commission makes sales only in car lots ot one or more kinds ot seed and sub-, ject to payment by sight draft with bill of lading attached. Prices are fixed to cover the actual' cost ot the cleaned seed as nearly as can be determined. All of the cereal grains purchased for seed are obtained subject to inspection as to definite standards of quality for seed graces. Small premiums per bushel are offered on car lots-which will grade tor seed with a limited dockage In cleaning. Relatively pure varieties are available in the quantities required only In a few items; hence the operations of the Commission do not  interfere unduly with the business ot Beedsmen who always handle named varieties. The seed surplus or requirements of each province are estimated by tho Seed Branch district officers in consultation with the Provincial Departments ot Agriculture, and where supplies are needed the latter bodies frequently place orders and assist in the distribution. MUoh :or the seed handled by the: Commission is,- however, distributed through the-usual channels ot commerce for seed supplies. Munlci pal governing bodies, agricultural societies, farmers' clubs or groups ot farmers" taker advantage of ordering in car lots and thus serve as a control oa prices asked by the trade. * FACTORS IN PRODUCTION.  * -   1.-Importance of Oeo:>r* ">�>-�*'�' � '��� 1 rrtbihll itmWat ufttea that you "Vtn.M IN* w* effect amonc fat* u\ew-of ydw vietutty.
