ALASKA WHEAT A FAKE Diacaverar lous Grain Maka boifc MW and ba Some of the Conservative have said Letnieux Act useless because it. was not successful iu averting the 0. P. R. machinists' strike. Ttey forget the J numerous triumphs it has had and say it is useless .legislation be- cause it failed in this one instance. The Hamilton Herald, an independent journal devoted to labor interests does not agree with this view, it sensibly judges that legis- to be judged by its average attainment which in the case of the iw tit, Joan, Sim pays the "follow- ing fiue and true tribute to the char- acter of Uw Liberal through party feeling must blur to a large extent the vision of this gen- eration, so far has Sir Wilfrid lifted himself-, and his premiership from tho merely partisan that he has compell- ed admission of his ability and hon- or, however reluctantly, from the most active of, hia opponents. All the frothy viciousness of party strife, all the extravagant charges and coun ter charges of hmladiuinistrutiou and graft touch him not; above these clouds he looms re- proach and dominant. And because of the unique place in public life his worth- .has vvo'iv him, because of his personal greatness, if there were no other reasons, the Liberal party will Wash.- Sept. itatiyc reports have bewT repelviKl in Spokane that the claims made by Abraham Adams lor so-called "Alaska" wheat grown on ranch near Juliaetta, Idaho, arc not justified. The average yield is about 'JO bushels to the acre instead of Croui 100 to 222 us he asserted and it is not true that grain can jrowiiariywheiv. The mmr-maki qualities of the wheat are unknown is the reason that no official test iias been'made. Experts say that i! Adams' claims were true the wheat farming industry' would be revolu lionized, but 'since, he has failed to make good on.his assertions, the dis of an agricultural niarvol u ?xplcKleci; and is, in fact, whhou foundation. V 'BOBBIE" KERR iNVITED WEtT To Run Three With Malcolm- W i son of rule iix Canada as and leads long as he Lemieux Act is iiigh indeed. The Herald says: "AC. P.-R, telegrapher was re- cently: .discharged for a reason which hfs fellow-employees deemed" insuffic- ient. 'Before the Lemieux Act canie .into force the dismissal of this em- ployee would probably have been promptly followed b5r a strike of the C. P. R. telegraphers. 'But un- der present conditions it would be unlawful for them to strike without having first appealed to the Domin- ion. Labor Department for the. ap- pointment of a Board of Conciliation and investigation. The board was appointed, and it has investigated the dispute. A majority of the board fp.vor the men's side- of the case and %vould so have reported, but the company has anticipated port by reinstating the discharged telegrapher and agreeing to pay him in full for all the time he has been out of work. "Those who are disposed to belittle and find fault with the Lemieux Act because" it failed to prevent the strike of the C. P. R. machinists should not forget this case of the telegraph- ers and the forty other cases where the Act has been successful in ending disputes promptly and ending indus- trial war. An act which, in odd cases, 'has done what it was de- signed to do, but which has failed in two or thrci- cases, cannot fairly be said to have proved a failure. If the percentage of successes jn favor of every law on the statute book were as great as the percentage in favor of the Leniieus: Act, this would be a law-abiding country indeed." r The ilediciuc ilat.Times, a red hot Conservative paper, makes the fol- lowing honest confession: .'Alberta's government has worked thus far to the advancement of The work of the Provincial Govern- ment' is a pleasant relief from the corruption that has crept mto the Dominion- House. "Alberta, Liberal ami Conserva- tive, has a right acknowledge the honesty that has fur char- acterized the general conduct of the Government.

People who have lived; on the prairies any num- ber of years are fully aware of the danger, most of t.hem having had ex- perience in fighting the rapidly rush- ing flames to protect their own or their neighbors' property. New set- tlers coming from parts of the coun- try where this danger'does not exist are very likely to be careless in the handling of lires with results disas- trous not only to themselves but to other settlers for miles around. A great danger arises too from the thoughtlessness of travellers going over the country. They leave camp fires burning and throw burning match es or cigar stubs on the prairie, evi- dently not realizing that the whok district is as dry as paper ami that a single lighted match will surel: cause the loss of thousands of dol lars and probably loss of life. The police are as vigilant as pos sible in preventing these- fires and vig orously prosecute those- guilty of sue] carelessness. But these prosecution do not restore property or brin back life and therefore are poor sat isfaction to the sufferers. Every farmer and rancher shonl therefore- be exceedingly careful to so to his fireguards. All buildings an stacks should be surrounded by a least one fireguard, ploughed twenty feet wide, but better to have a dou- ble guard with a burnt area between.
