Happily'this docs not apply to the large percentage of-farmers-engaging help during the'harvest period, but action is taken altogether top frequently.. Xot only docs il reflect on the community; but at Ihe same lime the [armors are culling tlieir own throats. It is anjbsplufe necessity that Eastern harvest hands be imported to gram fields. If they are.to be forced lo the their wages, the story they carry hbriie wiii'no'Kemillo increase (lie numbers in coming years. If the courts would tack a good stiff line on the delinquent farmer, it might help to put a slop nonsense. At any rule farmers should heed the warning or they may find themselves in the predicament of the shepherd Sail who cried "Wolf" once loo often.

THE editorially the Dorden jjov ernmciit lo busy itself about a solution of the problem of the high cost. of living in Canada. Coming as it docs from a news- paper conducted al least' by tferillemcn frienrlly fo the. gorem- mcnl, thc-deniand is a sign of. the ircnd of opinion amongst Con- servatives., Unquestionably (he high cost of living must be dealt with and it can only.be handled by measures of tariff relief.

In Ihe years between 1899 and 1913, lite cost of our foodstuffs went up fifty-one per 'cent, hi no other of the nine, countries of which statistics were tabulated was the; rise above 33 per cent. "Canada's position in regard to the cost of food is establish- ed by "these most unsatisfactory of countries. Whether a similar comparison imulo with regard io clothing, fuel, light and other necessities would be more satisfactory lo Canadians is yet a imeslion to'ascertain. Certainly, however, when it is borne in mind that the people of the.'Dominion must! hear the burden of trying conditions conscqucnt'iipou the severe winter weather for several uionths each year, one obtains a clear- er idea of the population's handicap in regard. lp the vital ques- tion of dear food. "With this country's population paying more Hum "that of the others for their food. at least as' much for other necessi- ties of necessities, the federal government should surely fitui within the province of its immediate ucjioii the adoption of measures io if possible, miliga.te this Siv'iwy natiomil tax. is the government j meeting its obligations in this regard?
