It was the first estimate of the I91S production that there would be 45,000 acres in crop to iiotatoes, which was siigluiy less than last year's. This estimate proved to be considerably too high, and the actual figures are now given at about 25,000 acres. An early estimate of the production per acre at 125 bushels has correspondingly been reduced to seventy-five bushels, the digging operations, which are now pretty well over, having shown that that figure is all that can be put to Alberta's credit this year. .EARING COUNTRY OF THE BOLSHEVIK \'icforia, Ocf. 2.'!.-Order is being rapidly restored in the region tributary to the Traps-Siberia railway as far as Oniisk, according to V. S. Mame-jeff, a Russian traveller who was a passenger on the steamship Kashima Maru, whicii arrived here last nigfit. It is now possible to travel in Siberia,, he says, without tear of molestation, the coimtry having been cleared of the Bolsheviki. The amalgamation of the Oniisk government and the government of Gen. Horvath failed to raise any considerable opposition, the partisans of other factors recognizing it as the natural course of events. M. Mamejeff stated that the Russians are flocking to the aid of the advancing allied forces. The Siberian gov, ornraent has foi-nied a new army numbering some 200,000 men. practically all or them between the age of IS and 20. mm First.
