Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - May 19, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD MTAILIIHCO IVMItlm e-y Htrtld Pvtllthlnt Ct., LU., at Iti efficl.

He Of Canadian industrials ft is haul (o speak gcn. trolly, as they vary from well established and extensive tramway systems, practically equal to railways, to mere gambles on Inud values, which, for the fac! that they offered lo the British investor at all makes it appear probable- that the chancen are heavily weighted against him, .Many of the industrials offered over here arc bond issues; the prospectus slalei in glowing terms the pros- pects of the enterprise, hut any reference lo secur- ity there will be apart from the residue of Ihe proceeds of the issue after expenses have been paid is often omit- cd. The ordinary capital behind the bond issues though impressively Inrge i< niosl likely to be "water." All Canadian indusirics, however, must not be tarred with the sau-c brush. Many of Shorn have very reiil assets behind them, and given good management offer oppor- tunities of rciumirrative investment, as good or belter lliun other favorite lieliU fur the enterprising British capitalist. The argument in fnvor of Government ownership of term- inal elevators, in keeping with the strong agitation in favor of the policy, is sensibly endorsed in a reference to Hie mixing of grades by terminal owners. The praclke has been excused on the ground that it docs not do anyone iu Canada harm. The grain is Knufcil before it goes into the elevators anil is graded ogaiiv as it comes out; and it is urged that, if the owners can, by skilful selection and mixing, increase the per- cenlage of higher grades, their resultant profit is detri- mental to 110 other interest. This, however, is an entirely mistaken view. The grades going in are average grades, about midway be- tween the highest and lowest; the grade which goes out after the mixing is n minimum grade, just good enough to escape a lower chissiticalion. As, of course, it is the out-going grades that reach the "markets of the world and fix not only tiie reputation of Canadian wheat, but also the price, it is obviously to the interest of the West- ern farmer to stop those abuses. There is happily reason to believe thai, as one result of (he. agitation, a chock lias already boon administered to the practice. We in the West are naturally interested in any reference lo the Prairie Provinces, anil the Supplement contains a very in- structive article on the. Here there is much information ;is to the C. P. It. ready-made forms, and also much that will be.of use to intending settlers. The writer quotes Professor Elliott, of the Demonstration Farm Department of the C. P. R., in lelling Brit- ish farmfHS that they need not hesitate to lake a Canadion'fnrm without previous experience in farming in this country. There is the following piece of admirable advice: t The main thing to keep in'mind is that you do not know oil about farming in a new country. It is a good plan to keep the eyes and ears pretty wide open ior the lirsl yenr, and the mouth pretty tightly closed. Keep your eye on the man who is the best farmer in your district. Don't hesitate to ask for information. It is not an evidence of ignorance for a farmer lo ask for infor- mation in a new country, but it is, on'the. contrary, a clear evidence of good, sound common sense. Keep in touch with nil the Government Experiment Stations and read a good agricultural journal 'which'-discusses the agriculture of your'district. There'is' nothing lo pre- vent the farmer who does this from succeeding. What must prove a source of great attraction to the British the information given, and the filcililles mentioned, for acquiring bis own home. The carried carefully described. There is, however, one regretablc omission so far as Lethhridge is concerned and that is that 'the writer, Dennis Crane, in speaking of building activity, says that a crude idea of it may be got by the figures of a number of important towns and noting how the per- centage rises. Amongst these towns we note Macleotl and Medicine Hat, but the name of Lcthbridge is conspicuously absent, although its building records could well furnish the object aimed at by Mr. Crane. Here is something for bur local 'boosters" to digest, and la see that Ihe "offence'1 is'not repeated in future reference to the prairie cities. Altogether the Supplement under notice forms a -pleasing addition lo (Canadian literature, and placet the Dominion in a very'attractive light both to intending settlers, and to British investors.
