Is of the utinoBt Importance that the larger mm be realized. Some Huge Advances Since the beginning of the war the ' Government has advanced no less a puni than $(100,000,000 on the purchases of the British Government. In Canada. Many important industries have been maintained because of these advances. The live stock industry is one of (hem. Lam. year the. Government �ns forced to\ndvanco the sum of $100,000,000 on the purchase of beef aiiuV'f'drk products. This yeur, tf Great Britain is to get our surplus of these commodities, we will have to extend the same credit, to the Motherland. With Her necessary war expenditures more than $S5,000,00(i a tiny Britain finds it difficult to pay caBh for everything; she buys. But .we find if good business to extend her credits. The policy enables our producers to find a market for their product* an �e are building up business that will be extended when the war Is over. Sir Thomas White's Words In this connection it. is worth while quoting the words oC Sir Thomas White: "The Victory Loan (19171 maintained the Jive mock market. The Government has urged the farmers to Talse hogs. It. is, therefore, vitally important that the entire bncon product should be sold at a good price. Last year's surplus of pork and beef, valued at $100,000,01)0, was purchased outfight for the British government. Canadian bacon enjoys a great vogue in tho Old Country', and the loss of the British market would be a. serious matter for this industry. There was danger last year of our having to export our hogs on tho hoofs instead of packing the nacon In Canada. This was averted by the Victory Loan." Then we have the testimony of Hon. T. A. Crerar, minister of agriculture, that "Practically all our bacon sur-pliite and a, large portion of our surplus of beet must, find its outlet in Great Britain." If we neglect the British market during these days of stress we may lose big business later, in fact, we are sure to.
