CHAMPION, ALBERTA Headquarters Congress Week, Room 65 Alexander Hotel We Manage Farms for Long Distance Owners DR. BAILEY'S SPEECH STIRRED CONGRESS Great Deliverances by U S. President's Rep- resentative While there was no subject given out'as the text ot the address of Dr. Liberty IT. Railey, official representa- tive to the Congress from 'President Tuft, president of the United States, it did not take long to find out thai th-a theme- was "Conquering the Sur- face ,of tho and in one of the stirring speeches of the whole Con- gress fraught with raessag-es from the great nation to the south, and inter- spersed with Dr. Bailey's own inirait- eble poetic; verses in which the sous of the soil were he told of the raising of agriculture from tlie early ages until now it occupies a position unchallenged iu the whole universe, Dr. Bailey's contribution to the Con- gress was something which will be remembered for years to come by the great crowd who thronged the build- ing for the evening program, li was a dynamic speech bristling wUh epi- grams, all applicable to the great farming industry. It exalted the lar- uier, and decried these who endeavor. ed to patronize him. It was one grand tHhute to the tiller of the soil through whose industry'the world is becoming better and closer to of per- fection which in the beginning was aimed at by the Creator. In opening his address Dr. Bailey expressed the interest of President Tart and the state of New York in the dry farming movement, and carried their -best wishes to the delegates as- sembled for the seventh session. .The dry-farming movement concerns Very greatly both Canada and the United he .'continued, and makes for. a community of interests which is drawing the two nations closer and closer together.

(In farming exhibits. I believe that dry f a ruling is going to aid greatly in conquering the surface the earth. AH tiiat I have seen here from thv raost scientific exhibit to the pumpkin, represents man's mastery oi" the earth. It was not many years ago that man was afraid of the vast plains. Nov." you see means by which you can conquer this great force, ami in ven- der exhibition hall every exhibit re- presents that masterj'. "Heretofore the farmer has been a fatalist, or else he has accepted what (hfls come as a matter of course. But 'now it is growing different. The new man on the farm has the courage of science, and, 'while he canncc conrro! the winter or the drought he can over- ccnie them. The farmer must be in sympathy with the weaiher, which not being a human institution cannot be bad." Speaking of the development of the west, Dr. IJniley said that Alberta should sell its land to men with cour- age; the real agriculture in any coin- try never comes until after the land boom is past. The development of the whole western portion of the pro- vince started back in New England in Nova Scotia, in Quebec and in On- tario. And that development has been startling. America with a continent at its hack has conquered Great Britain with an island at its hack has conquered the sea. Canada with its wide reaches behind it has yet the earth to conquer. No Annexation Here Rut In confjiiering the the fjii'iiier must go deeper. The Ameri- cans must go deeper, for by the way the land is tilled one can gain a know- led jte of the efficiency of the p-sople living on the land. "If America had land which it could annex I should hope thnt they would" not annex it. I I would want them to go deeper ;in f, they have done so far. System is tho keynote to the success of the farmer." The courage of the pioneers has rc- s'.ilted in tho settlement of the prair- ies.

Jewish Dry Farmer Speaks The evening session was conclude'' by a very interesting address Dr. Aaron Aaronsohn, director of thej Jewish dry farming experiment sta-i lion in Haiti, Palestine. The address! was illustrated oy many lantern slides} showing the develcpment of the agri- cultural interests in the oldest nation of tire earth, and to the Dry Farming Congress, and the personal work of John T. Burns and Jlrs. Burns, Dr. Aaronsohn attributed much of the suc- cess which was gradually changing i Palestine from the ancient to the mod-, ern nation.

AN IDEAL CL1MATB The altitude of the Kootruuy district is about feet, a most suitable elevation for fruit grow- ing. The annual rainfall is about 21 inches, ''United Stales jrovernmont exports say that apple culture under ideal conditions requires 22 Inches of water." The summers are perfectly delightful and not excessively hot; tho atmosphere is dry, and the nights invariably cool. The Icy bliz- zards of winter and the diwt storms of summer are never experienced here, owing to the protec- tion of the surrounding mountains there is prac- tically no wind. This is a very great advantage, as it dees not destroy the blossoms in the spring, nor shake the fruit from the in 'the autumn. There is no extreme winter weather, the ther- mometer seldom dropping below and this of short duration. There are no spring frosts in the Kootenay district, as the spring coming as it does about the middle of March, a little later than in other (llstrltj'o, keeps the trees from budding until tho danger of early frost is over.
