Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1914 THE LETHBRIBGB DAILY PAGE FTHB Canada Teaches America a Lesson "It is not necessary to go to 'Europe to study successful cooperative marketing organisations among says L.D.H. Weld, "hut to find the largest organization of this character on the American Continent, United States growers' must go across the line into 'Canada." Mr. Weld then proceeds to-tell the story of The Grain Growers' Grain Company, Ltd., of Canada.- It is an article that will interest every Canadian grain grower, whether he is a member of this successful cooperative organization or not. It is a just tribute to an associa- tion that has shown greater efficiency and more benefits for its members, in everyway, than any similar organi- zation on the American Continent.

DRY FAHMINO .VERSUS IRRIGA- TION JMr. Dunham's lecture was most en- lightening. He started out by telling of the good work .the Lothbridge Board of Trade was doing iu connec- tion with advancement of agricul- ture, a phase of boani of trade work not recognized by every organization claiming this name. lie paid a very high tribute to-.the energetic and un- selfish campaign which the president, Mr. Marnoch, was carrying on, and mentioned the fact that the Leth- hoard ha'd'come to realize the truth of the old saying that all wealth comes fropi the soil. "THE MAN WHO PRODUCES" "Wo arc here to help the farmer. said he, "the tiller of the soil ami the producer of our wealth as well as their .own. are here t help the fellow Whom everyone take a pick at. And everyone has been his merchant, the machine man, the loan company, thi hank, and the manufacturer. Kov that these men are not getting thei share, they are beginning to feel J, D.

Vv want to help make the farmer pro; perous, because that is the only wa, in which business can be cured oi its present bilious attack. IRRIGATION REQUIRES BETTER FARMING "Don't.imagine that irrigation will cure all the ills or eliminate all your troubles. There is more at stake, and it will )renuire better Carolina than ever, and a closer application to business to get returns. We have the choice between cjry farming and the chance of failure, 'and irrigation and irrigation 'arid success, and there is no question'as to which we must fol- EACH SYSTEM COSTS Taking wheat-as the dominant drop in-dry and hay as the dominant crop in irrigation fann- ing, Mr. Dunham proceeded on this tasis ot comparison to outline the advantages disadvantages of bodi. It costs 75 cents an acre to double disk a field' after 'the binder, S3 an acre to plow it, 'SI an acre to pack and, and all this the fear previous to when the crop is oil. Thirty cents interest brings the total up to at the beginning of the year in whiel' the crop is sown ami harvested. For har- rowing anil packing in the spring, an- other dollar is blown, 51 an acre for seed 25 cents for harrowing after the crop is up, 81.25 an acre to put the crop in the, shock, S3 an acre to it, (allowing for the and acre to haul :it to the elevator. This 'brings the total up to S12.35 an acre. Allowing the large yield-of 30 bushels: to the. acre, at the highest market price, the return is only an acre a year, as there is a crop only every, other, year. This is exclusive of wind, worms, weeds, drouth, hail, a voice in 'meeting said; put down wind and allowing that tire soil fertility is not deplete'd; On. top, oi is the" uncertainty .in wheat'farming. Mr. Dunham allowed three crops out of lour that is, a man Kits 45 bushels'an acre in three years; costing At 70 cents a ibushcl the three crops would he worth or acre a year, net profit. DIFFERENT. HERE On the other hand, lisaumlng that we have an already in alfalfa on irrigated land, Mr. Dunham says that the cost is distributed as follows: 51 per'acre" for water; 75 cents an acre for application three times during the season, and 53.75 per acre to put the crop' In stack. The total cost is 55.60, and if a yield of 2% tons is obtained, at a ton, we have a rjet profit of J8.25. an acre from our irrigated 'Jand, at the same time beating out the wind, the -worms, almost entirely conquering the wgeds, the drouth and the frost, and not only maintaining the soil fer- tility, but actually increasing the am- ount of'plant food-in the soil. At 8 >er cent., the -alfalfa .proposition is worth an acre, and the wheat, or. dry land proposition 521, a differ- >nce in favor of irrigation, of an icre. "Therefore, I say, if you can get. ir- an acre, you are not losing. Get it at you can, hut if you can't, get H at or but get Mr. Dunham was given a rousing demonstration nt the close of his ad- dress, snd his last impress- ed very forcibly on the men .present, who felt thai he Jiad not overdrawn ;he-picture in the least. PRES. MAlWOCir SPEAKS President Marnteh gave a brief ad- dress on the cost of Irrigation pro- iects in the United States, and his statistics showed that the average long a number of government recla udtlon projects was an acre Land established in alfalfa 'in some ot the districts he named is worth as high as 1300 an acre, and Mr. afarnooh-thought .hat tnc increase iu the value of the and in toil iUttlct Uw is 1 -thoroughly tested and strained Better Service Today Than Yesterday HENDERSON GARAGE tabUshment of canals would more than pay the farmers for their 'work and expense, because It would permit the raising of alfalfa, and Mr. Dun- ham has shown what alfalfa will do. Mr. Maruoch read the correspond- ence which has passed between the Board of Trade and the officials in Ot- tawa, and pointed out that the super- intendent of irrigation has evinced great interest in the proposed scheme, Jiinttng, in a letter -to A. Bucban, an, -M.P., that the government would possibly be prevailed upon to take the matter up in the near future. The cost of the project, to the farmers, aside from the original capital cost would not be in excess of an acre for maintenance. The capital cost, spread over a period of 40 years, would mean in Hie neighborhood of ?1 an acre a year, which together with the maintenance cost would bring the total up to ?2 an acre every year, af- ter the fourth year from the com- meircement'of operation. No payment on capital account is provided for Iu the petition, until after the ditch has been in operation for four years, the only cost to up to that time bsins the dollar an acre a year foi maintenance. SUPT. FAIRFIELD GIVES FIGURES Superintendent Fairfield of the Do- minion Experimental farm, submitted figures toJ show that the average in- crease in the yields of different crops over a period of seven" years, due to irrigation, was as follows: Red Fife wheat 20 bushels, banner oats '42 bushels, Claude barley 39 bushels, and Irish Cobbler potatoes; 25D bushels. TlieBe figures represent the increase per acre flue to Irrigation. The dry ancl In every case was summerfal- pived. Records.of the increase in the yield of.hay were not submitted, be- cause Air. Fairfield was ashamed to 'show the yields of hay on dry land. iMr. Fairfield thought that it would pay to havO' fir iHslfn and he proceeded to give a few point- ers on this most valuable ot hay crops. The Experimental farm has made as high as a ton. by feeding it to lambs, and; from to ?19 a ton by feeding to steers. Not only has it a high feeding value for ai'i classes of stock, "hut it transforms the nitrosen of the atmosphere into nitrates, which are soluble, and which can be absorbed by other plants, so that a growth of alfalfa in any soil adds to the fertility rather than de- letes it, increasing the yields of oth- er crops. WOULD '.MEAN TO ALTA. -Mr. Fairfield described a rotation to show what alfalfa "would do in this re- gard, and closed-his most interesting address by counselling the farmers to increase the producing capacity of their land, If at all 'possible, and thus make the aggregate .wealth of the dia-, trict much more. If irrigation will in- crease the value of the land by 572 an acre, this dibii-iuC will he richer by having the project established, by as there are acres; in the proposed scliume. This would be exclusive of the increased produc- ing capacity brought about directly by the irrigation. MAYOR HARDIE WANTS IT JIayor Harclie spoke very briefly and tersely. He said that his inter- est in the proposed scheme on behalf of the city, was a selfish one. Leth- Imdge would profit only in proportion to the degree of prosperity among the farmers. "We want you to get this salfl the Mayor, "because it will be an advantage to you and'to us. Lethbridge is -the" logical' trade centre of this district, and the distrib- ution the essence of our existence." The Mayor thought that the farmers should, cease taking chanc- es; that they entitled to any- thing tjiat would assure success with the of crops, and' the conse- quent1' contentment that it would bring, and the advantages of a higher grade of community life, which could not there was such an ele- ment of chance involved; B. of T. RRESOLUTION ADOPTED The meeting" forthwith adopted.the resolution passed by the bethbridge Board of Trade, commending the; Pe- tition already sent forward, on: the'; motion of Mr. Hay, seconded by 'Mr. Sandon. POSSIBLY ACRES V, Mr. Pearson stated he had informed by one of the surveyors in the field that acres nearer the mark of irrigable, land in the district, and that there were 1200 cubic feet of water per second in the Old Man river, more than enough: to successfully irrigate the entire tract; MORTGAGE COMPANIES' POSITION. The question as to whether' the mortgage companies would iiiterfera with the scheme oh the ground that they held the first mortgage to. cer- tain of the lands affected, was brought up, and Mr. McNicol of the Trust Guarantee Co., who was present, ed that in his opinion the companies would not object to anything that, would increase the value of the laiid. STAND TOGETHER Every one of the farmers In the dis- trict stand together, for they re- alize that the capital cost to them will be greater per acre if any drop out. Mr. Pearson circulated a number'of the petitions, and as the meeting was representative, it will be carried :to every corner of the district. ParmT ers from as far west as Monarch 'at- tended the meeting, which shows that, the interest is not dying. v SLIDES SHOWN REID Commissioner Reid .showed ber of lantern slides after the es had been made, the slides being loaned 'by Mr. Rankln of the Natural Resources department of the C.PJl.
