The be- lief exists that the Teutons and Bul- garians -would not hesitate to enter Greece in pursuit of the Serbians. The French airmen conducted a raid on the Bulgarian toira of Strumnitia, dropping fifty bombs. The British are landing large num- bers of new troops in Greece, and sending them north into Serbia. Lord Kitchener, on a visit to Koine. Is said to have received mises of Italy's aid in the Balkans. In accordance with her agreement With the Allies, Greece is preparing to partially demoboiize her army, .The first news of BritiEh fighting a British in Asia, near Bagdad, have been received. On the front in France the British settling down into winter quarters. mnd in addition they have special whioh to chtrgo very much more than they would be able to cliawo it they were forced to fnco competition from ever, quarter of the floba as the farmers are com- pelled to dtf. 'The bonkers also nave the advantages of special legislation which prietlcallr diraluatcs all com- petition, and they have their own powerful organisation which reyu- ittes the. rate ot interest they will on deposits as weir as .the rate 'of .interest they n'Ul charge on loans and, other banking services. Practi- other business interest has one or more of these outstanding advantages which protect them from world competition, and bring to them in some wayispeoia'l legislative advan- tage. Too Grain Growers Guide very pro- perly makes the point that "political- ly the farmers in western Canada have never had any influence in the Federal field because they. have di- vided their votes between the two old parties. On the bthsr hand, the .or- ganized business men of Canada have had great political Influence because they have -been wise enough to hold together and dominate both political parties, so that they stand to gain no matter which., party Is in power." In 1911, fanners who today demand free wheat, voted against a measure thfct would have provided it, because it was advocated by a. party they did not belong to. Party to them, then, was greater than their own interests. When the farmers make the political parties realize that they are united and In earnest, they can secure legis- lation that is beneficial to them. Unity on tha part of the manufactur- ers has enabled them to be powerful in the Bast; unity on the part of the farmers can make them powerful. in the future. I: all depends upon united as a third party, but'as a power the esjsting parties must heed. INTERROGATION TWO AN OR iwu r I Seager Wheeler is a dry land farm- j cr, yet he won the chief prizes at a Soil Products show in connection with an Irrigation convention. Probably ,-we are wrong, bet1 we presumed that the exposition was for the products of irrigated lands. Artere were the Southern Alberta irrigated farmers! Ctoiy one prize, came south and that for the best collection of vegetables. The explanation is not that there were entries from'the south and that they irere beaten in competition with other exhibitors tram irBatern.Canada. The truth Is there was hardly an eihibitor from the oldest and '.most successful irrigated district In The west. 'iVhat is the.esplanatioi. Were farmers too Susy, or did they lack Interest? The way for onrilrrisated district to t'e advertised, is'ttrbiigh the farmers themselves. They: produce the finest hays and vegetables, and fruits also In many cases. Why not display them "and-show the re7t of the country irrigation In the Lethbridge dis- .trict Is capable of producing? THE FARMER AND "THE BUSINESS MAN What will i reatilt from.-the recent conference at Winnipeg between the organized business interests and the organised farmers? The Grain Grow- Guide, in its last issue, makes some interesting observations on this matter, with which we largely agree. There is a very wide difference be- tween the fundamental principles UD- on which the farmers and the busi- ness interests conduct their opera- This difference must be clear- ty understood in order to arrive at any fair appreciation of the problems will be dealt with at these con- ferences. The farmer produces his crop in en- Ignorance of the price which he "Is W receive for it. He places it on the open market in competition all Test of the world and subject to ipeculatrre influences, as well aa 'the laws of supwiy and demand. Then 'is no IMUlatlon, and no possibility ot which would ensure the receiving the com- yltltlre price for bis products, and orjanised farmers hare never ask- cj for legislation.
