Tdesday evening the Mine again
defeated the Smelter aggregation.
Both teams fought hard from the
'first inning until the last man was
iput out.   Inability to hit in the
pinohes and poor fielding oil the

ithey made all their runs in the
second inning; Anderson reached
'lirst on an error; Olsen struck out;

Copper Sales Better
With Price Trend Up
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited
Foreign and Domestic inquiry shows
marked improvement and indications
are that Weak second-hand and smelter offerings will soon be absorbed and
out of the way.
Producers are holding firmly at
15 cents delivered. Second-hands and
custom smelters are unwilling to sell
under 14 1-2 cents and indications are
that price will be advanced in 24 hours.
Last week sales were made as low as
141-4 cents delivered so that price has
opened from 1-8 to 1-4 cent a pound
above last week's low prices of 141-4 to
14 3-8 cents. Foreign feeling is di»
tinctly better and with domestic
inquiry increasing it would not be
surprising to see quick recovery to 15
cents. Much depends upon development in the European situation.
Inquiry in market, while markedly
better than for several weeks, is not
especially large, but does indicate a
distinct change in consumer's attitude
and an increasing feeling on their part
that they -are letting copper on their
books get too low
Should favorable action grow out of
present developments in Europe, low-
nessof metal stocks in hands of fabricators, both here and abroad, lowness
of metal stocks in hands of finished
copper and brass goods on shelves of
jobbers and in hands of trade generally
would tend to result in rapid recovery
in price above 15 cents. Indications
are that fair buying can be expected
this week, with disappearance towards
end of week of most of the under-price
copper.      i '■',/■'■■

Orientals are Increasing
There has been plenty of ground for
the stand taken by Attorney-General
Manson, Hon. William Sloan, minister
of mines, and other government
supporters, against the inroads of
Orientals in this province, and the
realization has been brought home
graphically that something must be
done and done quickly.
Becent figures given out by the
government show that Japanese multiply three times faster than whites in
British Columbia. There are 15,000
Japanese in the province and only 862
in the rest of the Dominion; Vancouver alone has 4246 Japanese.
Little wonder the citizens of many
districts have repeatedly cried out
against the oriental..
No Vote on Open Sale of Light
Wine and Beer
If the sale of the liquor can tie said
to be a success in any form, it can now
be ta*en that the systein of government control worked out by Attorney-
General Manson and the liquor control
board is about as near perfection as
any method of handling the strong
stuff can be. Many people in British
Columbia have agitated for the open
sale of beer and wine, but the government have refused to submit the
question to a, vote. The Manitoba
electorate seem to have endorsed the
opinion of British Columbia administration and there is little likelihood of
the voters in this province being asked
to state their opinion's. Manitoba
declared for government control by
an overwhelming majority but Manitoba rejected the open sale of beer and
wine by an even larger majority. Such
a clear-cut expression of opinion in a
western province may , be taken as
the definite idea of all Western Canadians on the liquor question and the
system followed in this province will
be adopted by Manitoba.

Oar debts have greatly increased,—our revenues must
also go up. The farmer has to
bear his share of the increased
burden. 'That means he must
increase his revenue.
Complaint has been heard
that farmers under present
conditions in Canada cannot
'make farming pay. And yet
many thousands of Canadian
farmers do make it pay.
How Is It Done?
Patient and industrious "carry
on" will do wonders, but something; more is needed. Too often
"patient industry" is coupled with
, "dull persistence" in poorly
thought out methods.
Farmers today more than ever,
must plan ahead, as well as "plug
along"; indeed they have no option, it they wish to succeed.
Co-ordination of head and hand
will mean real success. Farming
in Canada has paid and pays now
on many farms., It can be made to
pay, on almost every farm. Canadian agriculture has passed through
low profit-making .eras successfully in the past and can do so
Crop Return* Should be Increased
On the Central Experimental Farm at
Ottawa some crop costs and crop profits
in 1922 as contrasted, with all-Ontario
average crop costs, and crop profits are
given, below. The all-Ontario figures are
in brackets:
Cost per acre ProSt per acre
Hay $21.13 ($13.50) $11.21 ($5.09)
Corn for
Forage $47.50 ($33.75)     $10.38 ($2.86).
Oats     $26.47 <$19.32)     $ 7.33 (   .04)
Similar results «n bo shown from the Dominion
Eiperlmental 'Forms In every province.
Experimental Farm crops are
sometimes claimed to be produced
■it too great cost. Thousands of
experiments, however, show that
increased cropping costs wisely
applied up to a reasonable point
always increase crop profits. This
is true on the Experimental Farm
—and on any and every farm.
With the increased cost of production, the higher standards of*
living now prevailing cannot be
maintained by poor farm management, "boarder" milkers, scrub,
beeves, poor quality hogs or non-
profitable hens.
That, even under present conditions profits may be made is testified by many skilful, observant and
non-plunging farmers; who believe
more in the policy of "slow but
sure" and-"pay as you go" rather
than speed,, .with excessive borrowing and the often consequent
The results on our Experimental
Farms also bear testimony to the
value of thorough, skilful work.
The Farmer Must
But crops alone are not enough.
The farmer must change his crops
into less bulky and more high-
priced products—milk, pork, beef,
mutton, poultry, etc.
With fair yielding cows dairying
shows good profits in Canada. The
average cow has increased her
yield 25% in the last ten years.
She can quite readily go up another 25% and more, and there's
where the profit lies. Better feeding, better selection and better,
breeding will ■ do the job—feed,
weed, breed.
To do better feeding means
better pastures and more generous
supplies of palatable roughage;
Short rotations including clover and
ensilage crops (corn, sunflower,
pea and oat, etc.) will provide feed
in abundance for both summer and
winter. The experiments and investigations which the Dominion
Department of Agriculture have
carried on prove that •• farming
scientifically and systematically,
undertaken will pay profits. The
records and particulars of such
work in every province are avail- "
able to the Canadian farmer.
