S.tlO IRRIGATION OUR PROBLEM ONLY The article in Saturday's issue oil the irrigation problem in Washington, from the yen of the Herald's'repre- sentatlve, serves to shnw- iluit the" flit- lo be overcome in the way of getting materialized is not Southern -Iberia's problem only but Is to (he fore in the State of Wash ington, where it is regarded as a live and important problem in the same measure it is regarded here. 11 is not a matter plain sailing in Washing- ton any more than It is In our own local scheme. It is, however, worthy der lha heading of "Our Agricultural Plight." It treats particularly with the agricultural conditions In the old centres, such as the New England States. An inspiration (or the. article Is'furiLished by the saying of tbe late Tlieoiioro "The mail who actually tills the soil is the man who is the foundation of our whole social structure, and if the life ot Ihe com- munity Is such as lo.eliminate him. all ihe rest of the community will pay iu tlie end for Ms elimination." The statement of the late Presi- dent ot the American Hcpublic con- tains a volume of truth, and It well applies to Canada in tho policy which Is now so strongly emphasized on j building lip iho factories, with a fail- ure ,to give tho consideration it de- serves lo basic Industry of agri- culture in Canada on which we stand or fall lii the measure encouragement or discouragement is given it. The depopulation of our rural areas In the waul of attraction which farm life affords, together with the present ar- tificial impediments placed .011 Us sue- cess in additiou to natural difficulties, Is just as serious a problem in Ihe Dominion as it Is elsewhere. What Is the problem, as H con- stitutes Ihe very life and prosperity of Ihe country, is given, a secondary place in the consideration of our econ- omic problems and is overshadowed by. the stress paid on the encourage- ment of our manufacturing Industries by Hie Government of the day.

Failing this it is faced with the future uf importing wheat to meet the needs of the pop-, illation. This is a problem which faces us here In a part of the country which comes under Ihe wheat belt and Is depended'on to take its part In adding to the World's Bread flasket, which has given Canada a distinclive name and a distinctive responsibility. We have to live up to a responsibility yhich not only .concerns ourselves hut the world in general, u he- not merely .B sec-; tionai but a provincial and national problem.' In looking' (or government- al aid in making irrigation accomplish- ed we are not alone in the view we take, hut this view is erjnally held by 'those who are behind the Irrigation projects in''Washington; .The- article on Irrigation in Wash- ington furnishes many sidelights and which are worth considering here. ibly is the plan spoken of which is followed in Ore gon and California is taken as a ieai! In the Slaje of Washington. This' Is tho establishing of a home market (or the sale of irrigation bonds by means of what is known as g Cer- tificate Act. This, as slated, necessi- tates the creation of a special board to consider the feasibility ot irriga lion to go Into the means of Proper construction and management and when all things are found satis bankers, professionals, transportation and the like is rapidly increasing. Very true Is the statement made by a Massachusetts farmer whom the writer .quotes: "Farming only gets at- tention when tilings go so bad on the farms that their condition becomes a matter of news. This is one of the troubles with farming. It IB not on speaking acquaintance with the rest of the world. lA lot of people seem to think the food production problen came upon us overnight. But it is no such thing. Agriculture has been steadily declining since the Civil War." yfhat'tne old farmer Massa- crmsetts comes home "with a striking force lo -our -owu particular diblricl. Mr. Gathany speaks of a highly re- spected American family, engaged con linuously- in farming for over two huidred' and eighty years, and now scarcely able to earn a decent living. With this in mind he apostrophizes: "Yet there are thousands of manu- facturers and millions of consumers all with an attack of sour stomach bc- c.iii-F.e they fear ll-at tlie Government will become kindly disposed to the farmer nnrl enable him to mnkp a cent or two or worl; less than sixteen ieeta'when they read about-260 pe: cent., 300 per cent., and 400 per-cent dividends paid by matiufastnr'ers "c shoes ,-ind textiles and'iugar aiitl pth er necessities." This is a gloomy pic lure but not overdrawn: It over, a picture of cpnditjons in a country where the.effects ot a'nrotec live policy so it.affebtq a basi Industry are coming to Ve and realized.

Some States Take Narrow View "But probably Minnesota, Kansas, and other farm-product producing states take a somewhat narrower view of our schemes. Naturally products of our reclaimed waste Ian da come Into competition with their own products, and there is consequently room for Though why this should be, when we are on the edge ot becoming a find Importing all that means to us from an economic standpoint, It is hard for me to tee. "However) we believe iwe have a good argument from an national econ- omic standpoint for asking for a "voto ot more for the reclama- tion service fund from the national treasury. A big meeting dt ernors and congressmen of western states most vitally Interested wag held In Seattle a short and'that was practically the-scheme mapped out. We hope to put on an active prop- aganda campaign in the east shortly by meani of a committee we will send to the: principal financial arid Indust- rial centres, so that we will create a strong public in favor'ot the plan, before the question comes np for action in the houses at Washington."

MASON LJMITED "The Balmoral Block of Vic troll" The following quotation from a farmer is not without meaning in the complaints that have been voiced In our own district: "Many Eastern bank- ers appear to have confidence neither in the farmers nor in-the land. Bank- factory-to certify the bonds so that! ers stumble over each other In their they become a laga) investment for efforts to incuico meat-packing con- public funds, such as State school cerns, wholesalers of farm products, funds, trust funds and Savings' Bank manufacturers to do business lunds.' An equally meritorious scheme is that which is now In practice in Wash- ington, whereby a-Slate Reclamation Service is created with the power lo assess half a mill on the whole assess- ed valuation of the State and so create a fund for the purchase ot the bonds of'smaller Irrigation districts. This points, to the relative jmportance of Irrigation to the whole Slate, and, ns applied here, to (he whole Province. A study of the Irrigation projects In the Slates, in U.e information it'" 1-rlng, cannot fai! io have its m.ituilal uses in the policies which -xi are ing to evolve. It. Is to kinw in pursuing after irrigation we are not chasing a shadow but that Ihe centralizing on its utilitarian neo faMeachlui; benefits has Its counter- part In the In the diligence nnd application men are giving lo the sub- ject, AVhat we are confronted will; hero they are confronted with UKT-J, and the goal aimed at Is considered Just as important to reach as it Is re. garded in our own particular part of the Province. THE OUTLOOK FOR THE FARM The depopulation ot our rural cent- res, in the attraction which the cities have fn countering the attraction of tho farm, is'a problem on which minds aro exercised today. This prob- lem" which Is affecting the Stales is treated In a serious and thoughtful irtlcle (n the New York Outlook, un- most of Ihese saine banks and ask (or a loan, and the bankers will turn up their noses. They tell the farmer that his assets are not liquid and therefore they can't loan lo him." If this Is so, then, as it applies to our own country it behooves the Govern- ment to do all in Ha power by remed- ial legislation and otherwise to help make the assets of tho farmer llqiiid, anil for bankers to realize the Im- portance ot encouraging -agriculture. Among the conclusions come to by Mr. Gathnny is the following, nml It comes appropriately home at the cut time In Canada: "Lawmakers are not, generally speaking, as much In. teresled in remedial-legislation In the causa of agriculture as diet of in- dustry iiml tuimmirce." This applies to the National I'o'.lcy now so the Premier ot Canada. t The'writer In The Oullonk quoloa tlie editor of the oiliest agricultural Journal In the world. Amongtt the many thing's ho. says In (his: "Kvery. thing the farm has lo sell Is compar- atively low, or there Is no market: and yet city consumers never palo such high prlcea. The had to hear Ihctr ohnre of the high price of clothes but now tvhen thr.y have a crop of wool to dispose of is Absolutely no market." He goes lo say that whilo the price of whmt the farmer produces was fixed, "other Industries obtained cost plus find tho privilege to make the cost as high they choose. The farmers grit Ihcir on admission for the "Mormon" church: 530. They save the cost of baling In Australia, will be. tendered a fare- and shipping, and th'ey get the manure woil service in the'first ward church from the feeders. :This they put back on Sunday night.

In con- versation with the Herald 'representa- tive, Mr. Fye predicted a victory In tho November presidential election tor Sen. Harding. Ho believes, how- ever, that (lov. Cox will carry Ohio. Mr. Fye Is a strong advocate of the League o( Nations. He considers that the U. S. made a grave mistake- when the ratification of the peace treaty and Die league covenant was defeat- ed la the senate. The visiting banker staled that money was slljl light in tho Stales and that the only thing that saved Iho connlry from" .1 money panic was tho Federal Reserve Bank for which he gives President Wilson the credit.

IRRIGATION FOR 20 YEARS IS ALREADY PAID (From Our Own Correspondent) RAYMOND, Oct. B.' Roberts is a farmer of Ihls locallly.who'somo- liow manages lo raise, a pretty good crop every year. Mr. Hoberts forlun. alely has some land under'ttio ditch so. In-a'measure he playa pretty safe. on the land and they nine at tire dollars for every ton; ol alfalfa fed. Alfalfa land here'requires fertilizer for best production the farmers consider winter feeding'the best meth- od because It gireS'Uiem thai return. One Ranch With Acres It is interesting to know, that finite a large number ,of :Spnthern Alberta cattle were fed In the.Walla Walla dis- trict on alfalfa last winter. Mr. Bur- lingame, mentioned, above; fed head, mostly from around the hridge district. His ranch Is about 17 miles out and he his acres In alfalfa. His ranch IB the talk o( the valley. "He put one" over oh all of us said Mr. B. L. Brunlon, who has seen 60 cummers In this dlalrlct. "He went out there on some land we all considered "a rahhit and hy means of artesian wells and olher schemes he has turned It Into a vertt- ahle garden. Mr. Burllngame by this venture, and by reason ot his wide practical knowledge of irrigation, Is fast getting Into the rrjlllonairo class. There Is a lot of stock raised In this district. Hogs are" summered on alfalfa p.isturo, milk a liltlt grain, and prime hogs at'six months the rule. Two to three pounds a day can be put on 80 pound shoats by this method. The town boasts a splendid packing plant as a result of the livestock In- dustry. Big Prices For Dry Land Dry land wheat here sell at from J200 to J300 per acre and the farmers Keem lo "set )jy" at these, prices. It is readily understood, there- fore, why Irrigated land Is valued at from }300 up -with the accent on tho "up." The climate la very nice, ol course, and Iho dtntrlct'ls old establish- ed, but for a money making ji'ropoci- Hon Irrigaled land in Southern Al- berta would seom to me lo be a bet- ter bargain at double Its going price. However, diversification, mixed farm- Ing, has brought about the values here, so that may be a lip for our Southern Alberta Walla Walla farmers, and In fact all the wheat growore of the state are thorouRhly disgusted with the price of wheat.
