A CONTEST ON IN BATTLEFQRD Champagne to be Oppos ed'by'Mf-' Howell, Conservative South Battleford, Sept. developments in the political situation here, is that Mr. McManus, the form er Independent Liberal candidate, has withdrawn, and stated his intentioi of stumping In the interests of Mr Champagne, the .nominee of the Lib oral convention. This action is due to the fact that Howell, who' latelj withdrew .as Conservative candidate has again entered.the field, oh advice from Ottawa; He states that ever} seat must be contested. The aver sion of Mr. McManus and his friends to menace the interests of reciprocitj by a three-cornered fight, is thV'canse of his retirement. It is now confident- ly expected here that Mr. Champagne will secure the largest majority in this election, owing to his personal record and the strong feeling in favor of re- ciprocity. CHAMPION NOTES Champion, Sept. The enumera- tors and other election officials are busy these days hunting up every ,tray voter. The meeting announced for last Fri- day did not 'eventuate. But. in the near itnre 'we shall have a Liberal gath- ering here. Labor Day was observed in, Cham- .ion quietly. We have no organized abor here. Donald Paterson, of Lethbridge, will each school here for a while. A party of harvesters from Ver- ont struck Champion last week end. lot of them soon found work. .Messrs. .Wettings, and Richard, of Boston, Mass., are out on the Wright ranch for a while... Rev.

A sermon suitable to Labor Day spirit was preached in the church on Sunday. The pastor dwelt on the re- lation of Christianity to Democracy, Born: To Mr. and Mrs. John Mc- BUFFUM Praises Lethbridge, Al berta and Canada; The Fair Also Professor Buff H m returned Mondaj 'culture expert, who acted as judge ol grains ind grasses at the bath-bridge Fair, evidently .thinks Lcthbrldge, Al 'herta, and Canada are all right. The tWorltind (Big Morn County, Wyo.) Grit, interviewed him, and said: Professor Bufftim refurined Mond; 'of (his we-ek from a trip into Canada where lie was called as judge of the grains and grasses at the Southern Alberta Fair, held at Lothbridge. He took with him v" exhibit of his new grains, and sold a (juantlty of Im- proved Winter Enimer to Canadian farmers. When The Grit asked for a state' ment about his trip, lie said: who stay at home are apt to think there is not much outside of America but Canada is really one of the largest places out of doors, and with reciproc- ity its agriculture promises to wield a large influence over the bread ques- tion this' side of the line. Wheat successfully grown for a distance of seven hundred miles north of the Ca- nadian border, and the Minister of Ag- riculture, the Hon. Duncan Marshall, told me there are- one hundred million acres of tillable land in Alberta alone. That northwest country lias thousands of our most progressive and energetic American farmers and hard winter and spring wheats of the highest qual- ity are produced. New dry farming methods makes possible the profitable tillage of millions of acres, and this extensive grain farming will make the northwest country the bread basket of the continent. Dry fanning is most successful at high altitudes and north- ern latitudes. This reminds me that Lethbridge is the logical place to hold the n-axt Dry Farming Congress. The people there want it, are able to take of the convention, with both funds and accommodation, .and they are going to Colorado Springs this fall with two special trains of delegates and exhibits. Wyoming members should help them secure the 1911! congress, for the movement has be- come truly International. Canada Is a great grass and live 'tacit country. They need a fatten-- g grafa to feed live stock, and I be- ieve th fa to feed eWinter Emmer will be very valuable to them. Tho.-JJethbridge Fair was a great rc-oss; and the manner in which the management financed ami builded the inside of three months' time is a remarkable exampKa-of Western re- souicu and energy.
