And -what is said of our today can be well applied to each one of the members who took part in the ill-fatet polar expedition.

When we hear of pessimists mouth- ing that we are becoming a decadent can proudly turn to incidents in the recital of Com- mander Evans to assure ourselves that the mod- ern century can iurnish examples wliich can well bear comparison wiln individual achievements in the past, and so be confident that the" end is not jet The story oLthc South Polar expedition, stir- ling in its action, sublime in its pathos, is one which should be engraven in our memonesjpar- ticularly in those of the young It is as_historic, as those" of events and names woven into the an- nals of ourEmpire, for it portrays the spint which has produced the the events with which their names are On January 18th, 1912, the Union Jack was unfurled at, the Antarctic Pole by Captain .Scott Had it not been for illness Commander Evans would have been present on that occasionT" To him was left the command of the expedition, and the bnngjng back the records of tragedy and achievement In honoring Commander Evans we are paying a tribute of respect to those wlio_ succumbed alter duty performed. As Bnlons.all, no matter what part of the Empire we are'living in, and by %vhat local names we are we, aie uniting today in the expression of a nali6nal sentiment. WESTERN FARMERS' OUTLOOK.-' shipped into Liverpool, England, and, with! wheat from other countries and that" from supplies the demands of the people in the British Isles. Russia, we are informed, is pajdng greater atten- tion to wheat production, and is establishing a i chain of internal elevators. This by way of en- to the grower, so that by storing his wheat he may be in a position to avail himself of better prices, and not rush his produce to market. ihe incentive to grow wheat being I thus en- there will be a stimulus given (o its fur- ther is not without iiiteresfto western It proves that the British fimirket Will not for nil time be in a to absorb the greater part of Canadian whfcat. As the 5 cars go on the Liverpool market must be- come in proportion more and mere Wheat must continue the staple product of Western Canada for some time, with acreage con- tinuing to increase. To a shrewd government this should be apparent, and "made for the disposal of the bound to be increasing sur- plus of Canadian wheat. If not for the present at "any rate for the future, additional markets should be looked to for the absorption of the agri- cultural produce of the -west. If arguments were needed for a southern market, the problem-with which -ne are faced must point to the necessity. To insist, as the Borden government thai the home market will in time be sufficient, is in the face of facts idlesnd foolish. In spite of wha its members say wheat growing must continue to be the special industry in a country where qew land is continually taken up. Mr. Foster urges that the price of grain is ap- proaching a point where it will be more profit- able for a man in the west to prft at least a cer- tain amount of his grain growing capacity into mixed farming to feed stock and raise dairy pro- duce. But who is helping to rnhke" the price ol gram less profitable but the government itself, By its legislation it circumscribes markets 'and makes expensive the implements of production The government, through its Minister of Trade and Commerce, looks to mixed farming as the saivauon of the west. But the only encourage- ment the western farmers have received in this respect has come not from the government but froin the President of the United States, in-throw- ng down the barriers which the Underwood Tar- ff has effected. Mr Foster speaks of the conditions -which lave happened to wheat growing in the west as 'nature's cure." and this with a sense of gratifica- tion. defines the attitude oflhe Borden government to the western agriculturist. Let na- ure deal with him, says the minuter, in so many words, and teach him the wisdom, or folly, of his etions, for oursches we profess to aid him in he way we consider best. That is by making con- ditions such that the western'' farrner will be 'orctid to sell his wheat to the millers, at any price he millers should ask, when the Liverpool mar- congested. If he does not care to [row wheat he can sow grain and fced.it to stock. But should the United States at any time choose to raise barriers against the coming in of lock, what is the fanner to do with the large [uantity he has raised, and to encourage which he Underwood Tariff has materially aided? If heie had been reciprocity it would have been an- ther matter, for the imposing of tariffs would not be entirely in the hands of the republic; To the fanner himself can be well left Ihe of mixed farming, or wheat producing, as onditions appeal to him.
