WALTER LONG A Man Who ,Ought to Have Been Chosen Leader of the Unionist Party When Mr. Battour Resigned There is no man in England who is a' more typical country in every respect save tbo lit. Hon. Walter Long, chief secretary lor Ireland in the late British Unlon- ast government, who is at present touring Canada, says a writer lu the JToronto Daily Star. He is a man of inany acres, with one of the moat charming, though not one of the larg- seats in England. He is ji staunch churchman of the moderate Low Church school. He is a sound has won the House of Commons Steeplechase, is a first-rate rider to hounds, and was, in former days, a keen cricketer. What he does :not know about ihose mysteries of guano, ancl'graii: 'mid sub-soil, and the -no wortli knowing; He fs the idol of th British farmers. In short, he is i righUlGiVn good open-handei fend typical Englisl sijuire of (Jiic b-asL kind. The one respect in which 51 r. Long 3s unlike the ordinary Etnglish squire is that he is a man of great not a brilliant ;man, but a man who has filled many high office, in the state, am! has filled them al with the average "Eng lisii squire's good hi lias plenty of not, as a rule comprise any astounding mentality But that well-shaped head of Walter Long's, 'with its high forehead, con tains plenty of brains, and out of his well-formed mouth have nroceedet some of 'the best fighting politica speeches of tli-e present day. Waller Long ought to have beet chosen leader of the Tory party when Arthur Balfpur resigned. And he would have fbeen so chosen had nol the jealous- 'pushfulness of the Bir iningham section of Unionism "queer c'd" his chances. He is more of ji persona grata with the church-ami state men, who still form the most numerous, though not the loudest voiced, portion of tbo Tory parly, than is Mr. Bonar Law, who is nar- rower in his outlook than Mr. Long He has always been a protectionist and so did not need to become a ''tar- riff reformer" in the space of five minutes, as did most of his colleagues, The charge of being a political ad- venturer can never be brought against it has. ere now, 'been levelled against the more brilliant F.

He is a good debater, and platform speaker, with a taking style though, perhaps, it cannot be said o his speeches either in the House Commons or on the platform tlm th-ey disclose any remarkable origin fility, still he is a clear thinker along tfftditlonnl lines and on definite sues. Mr. Long has represented no fewe than, six separate constituencies diir Ing 'his parliamentary career. Fo with nil his popularity, he considerable difficulty in getting a safe seat until, a couple of years ago bo set himself down in the Strain division of London, which he reure scuts 'today.

Last year exports wore practically nil, while Unpor reached a value of about half a million dol- lars. Itouglily speaking, the agricultural West in 1911. least's spare gobbled up Ml the.

Mow import- ant an industry it in that Western Canada is so tar overlooking may he guagcd from the fact that the an- nual value of; poultry products in Hie United 'States is greater 'than that of either wheat-growing or dairying, and more than equal to the combined value of sheep' and swine production. Where Prices Run Highest Interesting in this connection is a paragraph from evidence recently giv- en before the parliamentary standing committee on agriculture by Mr. Gilbert, poultry manager at the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa: "I had a visit Iron: a British Co- well, become- more and more general in the West.

Inmbia gentleman the other day, and ThB; Western farmers are growing the be said, 'We have a mild riinute rajn fdr farmers of which is particularly favorable to the to convert into bacon, but- raising of .poultry.'

Walter Long is fifty-eight years old Off and ou ho lias been in parliament for over 'thirty of those years. Though somewhat hasty, at times in1 temper lie is of Irish descent on his mother's side he -can yet keep his head at a critical moment. And it is dou-btful whether there is in 'the British par- iament a man more popular-' person- ally than he, with political friend and opponent "straight as a Is an expression not seldom applied to him. His eldest son is A.D.C. to H.R.-H. the Governor-General of Canada. 'His only daughter married a niember of the wealthy mercantile family of Gihbs, 'who represents West Bristol parlinment, while bis wife was formerly Lady Doreen Boyle, a daugh- ter of the ancient Whig house which owns the Earl of Cork for its head. Perhaps one of the best known storieB connect-ad with Waiter .Long is one is ''sometimes told to il- lustrate -the late Lord Salisbury's ab- sence of mind. At a time '-when he had. been Lord 'Salisbury's cabinet cplteague for soveml meeting lim day, 'the 'old statesman was one day lunching at the Albenaenm Club with a (Hstingulehed Bishop.

In Ot- lawa the highest market, price was 611 cents a dozen, and at the "Experi- mental Farm we sold at 50 cents. Ap- parently in the case of British Co- lumbia a genial climate had no effect on the high value of eggs and poul- try." With such' high prices, West' "and East alike, why do not ordinary far- mers, as well as specialists, take ad- vantage of profits offered There are various- points to be' consfilqied-Micro- In.the course ot il'r. Gilbert's evi- dence before tiic committee, gt brought ojtt that nvheii egg's were Cell- ing in Ottawa at 50 and 60 cents Ihe dozen, they could be obtained at about half' that price within three hours' run of that city! Knowing'this, the farmer has usually grumbled 'Why in for poultry when the middleman'gets most of the'profit has let it go at that, over- looking the fact that his own ness 'in marketing has been a chief factor against his getting the top price which the public is willing to give for Its favorite breakfast table delicacy when it is absolutely fresh. Co-operation in Marketing Of course, not every fanner is so iitnated as to take advantage of !he top-price market, however much he strive. And, too, it is only by work- ing in co-operation with his that he can secure for himself a fair iiiarr of what has ordinarily gone to the middleman. Mr. Gilbert divides tanners into three, classes. One, those near the cities two, those near express offices or railway sla-; tions lack. three, those who are away The latter must be content 1o much more profitable should it, he to the who has the grain at first cbs'ii and the market a I his door. This .surely demonstrates the advisability of turning the coarne products of 'the farm lin- ishctf products oE high value easily placed on the market, and thus se- curing a large portion of the highly increased market vnliio which the double freight charges now cause." Well over dollars' worth of eggs -and poultry were brought into Alberta alone during For the entire Middle not to mention British "Columbia the total must already'be around a-single Canadian Finance.
