Of those who went overseas only a haiid- fu2 remain alive. Out of one battalion from- west Ontario two men are alive; out of another battalion ot 120 men in the same section, five are alive. And Canada didn't have any more interest in the European fiasco than we hud; that it belonged to the British. Empire. Canada used to boast that it didn't pay a cent to the upkeep of -tlio. British navy yet got its protec- tion, that it was entirely self govern- ing and -.could- do anything ;it .wished except Qiiit the British Empire. Anil war broke out. over the seas it paid a bigger price than if It had paid paltry millions to build up the Em- pire's navy. Americans are inclined to believe that Canada would be better off. if it were in business for itself.

It is on a par. with a lot of stuff being printed across, the line with a view no doubt to dis- courage immigration to Canada, nada is not a nation that pays other people to fight for its cause. Our men have gone overseas, not as hut as volunteers. To fight Canada's cause, yes, and the cause of North XJakota and every other state in the union. We would be a mighty poor lot if we held off and paid Great tain, South Africa, Australia and New- Zealand to do our fighting. 'The Jiope Standard seems to forget that Canada is a part of the British; 'Empire and that the British Empire, the is in danger in this war. If the enemy could place troops on" our shores would do so, just as it has placed spies and agitators in fie United States to create the impression that the United States didn't count with a certain ele- ment, and that Germany was first. Canada is in this war of its. own free will. A united- parliament repre setting the whole people' met voted the money for participation. If we had been cowards and weaklings and an ungrateful people we could havs kept out, Canada possesses lib- erty, freedom tand justice, and wants to retain them and have other nations enjoy them. As for Canada being in business for Itself, we might recall that Uncle Sam is m business for himself, and he .has had a pretty slippery time to keep out of this war.

Now} this is where-the company .made great mistake, they should have 'is- sued a statement as to the profits made by the company at the end of each sea- son and _the farmers would have -been more satisfied. I' have a suggestion to offer in re- gard to the sugar'factory in Raymond. It'is this: let the factory remain in Raymond and turn It into a co-opera- tlve sugar factory. Let all the Jarni; ers who promise to raise beets for the factory bo allqwed stock In the plant and let them pay for' their stock out of the beets 'they raise, say half in 1917, and iioif in 1918. There "are enough wealthy raen_ In Raymond to finance such a scheme finished pay- .jitli tile farmers had ing for their 'stock. 1 note Knight states Unit' there are not enough women and chil- dren in Raymond to take, care of the beets, but he is mistaken. I have seen sugar factories built in Utah in towns with only half the population of Ray- mond and flourishing, today slmpsy because the farmers and their wives were allowed to buy stock in the plant. Down in Utah the'farmers and .their wives and all the children who are old enough work like beavers at .thejieets. They-know when they are slaying" away broiling hot summer sup thinning heels, and later" toiling away top- ping the beets and loading and unload- ;i ing them that they are going to enjoy the full reward 'of their labor instead of Slaving away to make rich men still richer. Co-operation, has been a grand suc- cess among- the'-farmers of Utah and here is no reason on earth., why it sholilfl "equally successful in Raymond. -.It i.itould be a thousand pities for that sugar factory to be re- mover from Raymond, for if it could he run on tha same lines as the co-op- erative, plants Utah it would be baund to prosper, and it would not only mean the prosperity of every line of business iri Raymond, but of all the surrounding district .as well. I venture to predict tliat if the plant is re-opened under the plan I have sug- gested that the population, of Ray- mond instead of.belng stationary as it has-been for 50 many .years, will grow and bounds and also that It couchs arc would long before a large or KM Excel tion woulOiavi, to .-be built to the i cough, plant. I trust tfie people of Raymond will: thihK'It over before .they let such'a splendid asset as the sugar factory away from them. A. B. Sheldon.
