Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager Your King and Country Need You Kight Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Bulgarian-German campaign in Serbia has not .made any material progress as yet, though [he Germans claim further gains south of Belgrade. The- Bulgarians, who have at last de- clared war on Serbia, were repulsed to their first attacks. The indications are that the Germans also have been checked. JThe Russians are continuing their advance against the Teutons, to such extent that the Austro-German forces to tie south may be compelled to fall back on Lemberg in Galicia. To the north at Dvinsk, brisk fighting continues without much advance on .either side. On the isest, the French have re- sumed the offensive again, and are engaged in a great fight in the Cham- pagne district. British submarines in the BalUc have competely demoralized the com- merce between Sweden and Germany, which kept up the -war supplies to the Germans, and shipping has suffered tremendously in the last few days. Ten thousand more Canadians have been sent from England U> the front bringing the total there to An effort to force an issue on con- scription in the British Cabinet is to be made. The French Foreign Minister has caused wide -surprise by resigning, following- criticism over the Balkan situation. son-Underwood tariff gave us tho priv- ilege of soiling certain articles in tho United States wit hen t the Imposition of u duty. That tho farmers want free wheat is evidenced by the recent demand of the organised fanners of the western provinces that the government should remove the duty. One of the reasons advanced is well put forth' by the To- ronto Saturday XtgLt, formerly an opponent of the proposition-advocated by the Liberals in 1911, and later iu the House of Commons, when they urged the Conservative government to avail themselves of the offer in the United States tariff to get our wheat into the American market without duty. "Trade regulations have no busi- ness being as unbendable or unbreak- able as the laws of the Medes and Per- sians." says Saturday Night.

S? tfARKET The unsatisfactory condition of the grain market is arousing some former opponents of the larger markets pol- icy advocated fcy the Liberals into pressing upon the Ottawa govern- ment the necessity of removing the duty on wheat it1 the western'farmer is to have a market where he caa readily and profitably dispose of his grain. Immediately, some of the old- time opponents of trade freedom, and Supporters of protection, become ftlarmed, and tell the country frse wheat would ruin a great Canadian industry, though they are not so eager to argue that free wheat fail to. benefit the farmer. It is time the persistent cry of the farmers for the removal of the duty on wheat was heeded. Surely the farmers are in- telligent enough to know what is to their benefit. Talk of ruining an in- dustry can be well offset by talk thit free wheat will stimulate the grain growing Industry- This country has always been too eager to rush to the assistance of the already highly pro- tected manufacturers, and overlook the" demand of the farmers, with the comment that the men on the farm do not know what is good tor them. The farmers know the the Ameri- can market Since 1911 they have had a number of opportunities of testing tt, and the results have been BO good that they will very wisely pay no heed to Ihc eJement who say that the Am- srkan market will not help the price jf wheat. It has already helped the jrice of other products since the WU wheat, and we need it badly. Chicago j today will buy -our wheat at far more money than we are able to sell it for elsewhere, but our trade regulations prevent it. Chicago wains our hard wheat to mis with their soft wheat, Chicago cash wheat is quoted, as this is written, at from to Winnipeg cash wheat is quoted at from-92 to ?4. The loss to the Can- adian farmer is only too apparent. Shipping is scarce at Canadian ports, and markets are scarce abroad. Ocean freights are abnormally high. There are a dozen reasons why the situation should be relieved by open- ing up the-American markets to our farmers of the Northwest, and not a solitary, one against politi- cal expediency. Attest the Canadian wheat grower is going to skin through with a very small margin of profit per bushel. Why .not give him every ben- efit? He needs the money, and so do Let the government tear down the tariff wall on wheat between us and the United States, and by so doing they will meet an emergency like statesmen. Cracker barrel poli- tics should go by the board in times like these. It is not a question of Liberal principles or principles. It is pure business. We have been borrowing millions in the United States. Let .us counteract it by eelling them our Both in the and in the east Conservative papers are nsw calling upon the Borden government to abol- ish the Canadian duty oa wheat In or- der to thus automatically obtain free access to the markets and transporta- tion chanaels of the United States. In 1911 these papers called upon the peo- ple of, Canada to reject the Liberal free wheat policy, and declared that to divert traffic to north and south' lines" meant nothing less than the ruin of the Canadian transportation sys- tems.' The C.P.R., we were told, wotfid degenerate into two "streaks of-ruet" across the prairie. But that which was going to ruin Canada un- der Laurier in 1911 is to prove this country's salvation under Borden in 1915, providing, of course. Sir Robert gives heed to the pleading of these Tory papers, and adopts the policy of free wheat which he fought to a finish four years Among the Tory, papers, -which in 1911, fought free wheat, and are now crying for it, is the Saskatoon.Star, which, in the course of an editorial on Monday last, said: "There is another step the govern- ment may take, most radical of all, perhaps, but timely, and, we believe, desirable and even necessary, to meet present conditions at least This step is the removal of the duty from wheat, primarily for the purpose of gaining access to American transport chan- nels. It is particularly desirable that for the next six or eight months at least our grain be carried unimpeded by bonding formalities and tariff walls, to seaports in the United States from which sail scores of vessels that do not enter Canadian harbors, particu- larly now that insurance rates are much heavier for vessels sailing from Canadian ports, than on those going from neutral countries, a fact that may have an appreciable effect upon grain prices also. "Whether or not the removal of.the tariff barrier againRt shipment of ou'r wheat into the United States would i have any effect upon prices beyond GOTHIC TNE NEW ARROW uc COLLAR IT TITS THE CRAVAT that afforded by a more free export channel and possibly lower freight rates, it won id bo difficult to say, but if there is at any time a be-nefit, none are more entitled to it than, the farm- er. That there would be an adjust- ment of cccasional inconsistencies of Canadian and American, markets seem although the actual re- sult of such an adjustment in profit or loss to this country might never he ascertained, and though, important, this feature need not be considered as paramount for the time being. Cora- petition in ocean hauling and the freest possible movement of our sur- plus grain supplies during the coming months are alone sufficient to war- rant the government dropping the duty from wheat, thus making Canada a participant in the United States reg- ulation, which automatically extends the privilege of open markets to those countries offering similar terms to them. believe it is in the interest of the western grain producers to have free access to the American ocean harbors for their products, and to ad- vantages, if any, the American mar- kets offer, and Uiat, in adopting such a course, the government would sim- ply be adhering to a policy of advanc- ing in every way possible the-inter- ests of the nation's greatest indus- try." An eastern Conservative paper that is now loudly clamoring for free wheat is the Toronto .World, owned by AV. F. Maclean, a Conservative member of Parliament, .and a strong anti-reciprocity man. in 1911. In a re- cent issue The World said: "In the United States Tvheat is from 5 to 10 cents higher than it is in Canadii, hut cannot ship and sell to the United States unless and until The Dominion government removes the. restrictions and em- bargo upon the export of wheat to that country; and Canada removes the duty against United States wheat, and thereby automatically removes the present duty against Canadian wheat. "The price cf Canadian wheat is, therefore, depressed, because it has practically only one outlet, the Bri- tish market, and no present definite assurance of getting to that market promptly and at reasonable rates." The Ottawa Citizen, independent Conservative, is also advocating the removal of the Canadian, duty on wheat, in order to free access to the United States market and trade channels. The Moose Jaw News is "likewise falling into line, and in a recent issue aaid: "If free wheat would be of any Ben- efit to the farmers, then let them have it.- To the farmers the commun- ity must come; they are the back- bone of the.Dominion and will be for. some time. Accordingly, their inter- ests must be considered; for what is best for them, is good for the great majority in our population- The economic side of the problem is one that should have most weight these days with those who direct public af- fairs. The great problem of govern- ments, as well as for individuals "just now is to make ends. meet. This can best be done by; obtaining the most for what we have to sell." Even the Winnipeg Telegram is be- inning to see the and warns the milling trust that "if the govern- ment meets the views of the-Manito- ba Grain. Growers, and opens the Am- erican market to Canadian wheat, Ca- nadian wheat buyers will have only themselves to thank for the added competition." This is an admission, as the Edmon- ton Bulletin notes, that the opening of the American market would intro- duce competition among buyers for Canadian to'the advautaso of the Canadian farmer and the disad- vantage of the Canadian milling' tniBt For saying which, four yearn ago, the, Grain Growers and the Libert IB were denounced as "an aggregation of fools, with dishonest motives and traitorous intent The Conservative government can put wheat OIL the free list without any opposition. The Liberals have fav- ored it in tho past, and favor it more strongly today than ever. They have stood.for the policy before the coun- try and on the floor of the House of Commona. Up to the Con- servatives have heeded .the demands of the milling Interests, and over looked entirely the benefit free wiwat uould bring to the farmerf. Bulgarian Duplicity is Exposed Paris, Oct, response to re- solutions adopted by the finance com- mittee nnd group, urging the necessity of a "complete and im- mediate explanation on the part of the Premier Viviaui in the Chamber of Deputies today out- lined the situation with respect to the Balkan states. He said, In part; "In their considerate desire to give the Bulgarian people satisfaction In their aspirations, the powers of the quadruple entente did not hesitate to ask valiant Serbia to make heavy con- cessions. Despite the cruelty of such a sacrifice, and desirous of proving their attachment to the Allies which were combatting for their common in- dependence, the Serbian people made this extraordinary effort, and resigned themselves, hoping for compensations jthat the victory of the quadruple en- tente would be able to give Serbia elsewhere. Bulgarian Duplicity "The equivocal attitude of the Bul- garian government led the Greek gov- ernment to maintain a waiting policy. Our diverse proposals received tardy response from the Bulgarian govern- ment, which asked for additional de- tails, and at the same tinie carried on parallel negotiations with our ene- mies. Finally, at the moment when the quadruple entente informed Bul- garia of the important concessions Serbia was ready to make, King Fer- diand signed an accord with and engaged himself defintely with Germany. Situation in Rumania "Our efforts with Rumania were par tially successful. Rumania, the peo- ple of which country frequently mani- fested-French sympathies, was not un- favorable to the- re-establishment of the Balkan' alliance. Her partial mobilization permitted her to repulse' t threatened herself against all German pressure, and observe with the clearest atten- tion events along the frontiers both Austrian and Bulgarian.
