CALGARY, Mbertn, April 13, 1030..
Alberta is propnrlng for a porio- of
uuexuiii'pled development and pros-
pertty. Every hamlet town nnd cit>
has nu incipient building boom. The
fanners ure building feverishly expect Inn bumper crops thi* coming
senson. Tin Immense snowfall Is tlie
harbinger of proline urops and Bottlers from the United States are already trooping in nnd buying up lands
in nil parts of Alborta.
Tho States of the corn belt have
lind one of the most frenzied hind
booms in history. Farmers grow so
rich owing to wnr .prices und world
scarcity that speculators begau buying
farms everywhere In the corn belt.
Tiie boom gathered force as H swept
over the country nnd hundreds of
thousands of farmers sold tlieir lands
und homes ttt prices ranging from
$.100 to iilOU per ncre. Probably u
hundred thousand farmers .villi their
families have abandoned agriculture
und retired io the towns and cities.
Too much prosperity has separated
them from life-long occupation. In
the Middle West n vicious system has
grown up hi recent yenrs. :io'.. or
409S of the fnrun- nre not cultivated
by their owners but by tenant farmers, whose sole aim is io get nil they
can nut of the land uud then move
on wtth money enough io buy farms

"Hoom" hns sent u hundred thousand;
or it may be two hundred thousand
or these tenant far mer a iu Bearch of
new hmds further West or in Canada
and Willi their savings ihey nm buy
farms larger than they left behind
for 10'- of the prices being (laid In
lown or Illinois. One farmer who
sold :i 160-acro farm In Iowa for $1*-.-
000 lust Pall, hns Just boug-bt a farm
of 1.00(1 acres 100 miles North of Col-
gary for $30,000. He suys he will,
grow 500 acres of Wheat this year und*
thnt, he ought to harvest 'JO.OOO bushels, nml sueh u crop nt presont prices
will pay for the farm, Ho believes
Alborta  land  will  raise mors  grain

In five yenrs lie believes bis fnrm in

He got over $Ti00 nn acre for his
farm In lown und the 1.000 acres he
hns Jusi bought i.n $80,000 he thinks
will he worth $800.0000 m live years

farmers who sold out during Uu boom

The boom iu land values and this Immense trek <>i fnrm population is one
of the unexpected cousi t|nonces of
the wnr.
ThOSO who huve been exporting u
.lump In laud values and In the prices
of farm prod tic te hnd better watch
this mlgrnlloti of farmers carefully.
Tttcro will he fewer acres of land tilled In 1080 than In 1018. A hundred
thousand furmers have retired lo the
cities, tens of thousands of farm laborers have found some congenial
work In the steel mills, in motor factories and In coal mid metal mines.
In tlie lumber und mining cnm,ps,
shiftless and inetttclent labor lis getting |5.00 mid $r..r.O for s hours work
Only very inferior labor can ho obtained on the farm for $100,00 a montii
and board. Intelligent agricultural
labor is dully growing scarcer and
the speculators who bought farms in
the Corn Belt for $500 an ncre will
have a hard time to make them pay.
The  tennut-ul-will,  oven
worth of hog products more than in I
1014, und they export another billion
of hog products.
It Is Idle to appeal to them tn lessen tlieir sugar and meat end egg
consumption, while they have tho
money to pay. The fanner, the carrier, tho manufacturer, the banker anil
tho middleman arc all getting a slice
of the increased profits, they are all
sharing in the general prosperity save
and except the great multitudes wlio
are engaged In .professional or clerical work or In casual unorganized
labor. The wages of this vast multitude, the largest part of the population, are not yet adjusted to the
now scale of prices of farm products
or to the wages paid In essential Industries to organized labor..
It is useless) to hide the fact that
organized labor te arousing intense
animosity among nine-tenths of the
community hy Its everlasting resort
to strikes and slacking to enforce Its
demands. When a ten million dollar
plant Is closed down for monthly by a
strike or lock out the public pays In j
highor prices for the commodity made
iu that .plant. When Uie workman Is
only TiO'/'l efficient in a coal mine or
on a farm tbe public and not the proprietor is cheated for the costs of loafing always fulls upon the consumer.
No snne mnn objects to tho work-
man's efforts to better his condition,
but in our complicated civilization
neither employers nor employed should
be permitted to wrong the 90^r of the
nation dependent upon their industry.
Governor Allen of Kansas has led in
the llgth to end ull strikes and lockouts by referring labor disputes to
the courts.
Another economic change which the
immense growth ln consumption and
business will bring about ls the electrification of all the railroads of Canada und the Imited State*. The great
tnuik linos can no longer do tlie business being offered them and business
is growing mid will grow faster than
ever. The American railroads need
seven billions for extensions, betterments and equipment, and the Canadian railroads need at least $500,000,-
Lots of people said that the Canadian Pacific was ten or even twenty
years aimed of the business of the
Dominion, yi today the Sanadlan Pacific traffic lias outgrown its fneil-
itfos. On the main line from Calgary to the Coast the traffic has
reached its limit. Only by routing
freight over the Southern line through
the Kootenayg can it lake care of the
expanding business.

000 workers for otlier jobs. Moreover, 500,000 men HOW eus-iui'd in
coal production con bt switched io
other industries by tbe proper utilization i>f the country's coal resources.
The United States is burning up 500,-
000,000 torn-, of bituminous coal annually. tons nf tliis is
consumed by ttie railways. Only 20',
ot tin- energy or of the values in this
mormons tonnage are utilized or recovered. The average cost of tliis
coal to tho railways, not ;|t ihe mines,
hut at the place ftf consumption, te
not less than $5 per ton. The byproducts lust lu smold- when Xhte coal
is burnt in ii locomotive arc worth nt
present prlcee $-" i>-r ion in otlier
words ihe railways lose $2,300,000,-
000of the chemical by-products in con-
miming 115,000,000 tons of coal tor
ilieir motive power.
Were this 116,000,000 tons or conl
distill Oil or ri-linctl and Its valutilc
ma tier converted before the carbon
■ ontouts were utilized for fuel, the
distillation   would  be:
fU5,OuO,000 gallons of motor Bplrli;
1,840,000,000,000 gallons of fuel or
illesi-l  oil;
80,500,000 tons ot Htnokolesa fuel capable of producing more heat than
150,000,000 tons of original coal.
700,000,000,000 cubic feet of rich gas
which could he used for besting, llght-
'ng, generating electricity, or for steel
making or metal making;
1,035,000 tons of ammonia sulphate
lor fertilizers.
Considering that motor spirit is
now worth HO cents a gallon and fuel
oil 7 cents, the motor spirit and fuel
oil lost in smoke yearly In locomotive
••team engines Is the equivalent of
$1,400,000. At 50 cents a thousand fur
Mils  rich  nan tlte  waste Is  $350,000,-
000 a year, and the sulphate of ammonia lost, and the greatest efficiency
of the fuel, will brim; ii up to over
$2,000,000,000 yearly. Thus the Ue-
pubile's annual loss through failure
to utilize nl! the valuable by-products
of coal equals ?lo.000.00O,ono yearly,
or one-third of the CO t of lhe World
war lo the United States.
Were coal properly distilled and refined 100,000.000 tons uf coal would
give all the light, heat and power now
produced hy fi00.0flo.000 tons.
Sixty   years   agon   the   petroleum
oosinlg out of the ground wns a waste
product  and u veritable nuisance to
farmers and fishermen.   Then cheui-
! is try solved the problem of distilling
' or refining the waste.   That discovery
| is adding $3,000,000,000 yearly to the
! wealth of thc United States and it has
j revolutionized  the   transport   ot  the
World on land and sea and made the
navigation of the air a reality.
1 The distillate of coal will add a liim-
j dred fold more wealth to the World
j than all the gold and silver ever recovered from  the earth since man's
; advent to (his planet.
I Between one-sizth and one-.seveuth
I of the coal resources of the World are
. in Alberta. Their conservation and
proper utilization will make Alberta
1 the richest nation ot the earth. In
uo other Commonwealth can coal bo
mined so economically as here. The
by-products of this coal nre worth today $*jft a ton, and tlie smokeless fuel
left in the retort has a heating power
equal to the finest anthracite, :,nd 5096
1-er cent, greater than good bituminous. Alberts has one thoufland two
lutndrod and sixty billon tons of conl
that can he distilled for petrol, oil,
gas. carbon and fefrtilizers. To put
it in another wny. Alberta can harvest more wealth from her coal mines
in this century than all) the nations
of the Old World accumulated since
civilization's  dawn.
It has six times the coal resources
of Greal Britain ind more than all
l.iiropc and Attica and Asia combined tf we leave out China's coal.
■The United Stftt-M possesses moro than
half the coal or the World but it Is
.mainly at the Atlantic seaboard, while
, Alberta's eonl is hut live or six hundred miles from ihe Pacific.
Tin World's petroleum or oil sup-
I ly will reach its peak of production
iu 88 years In fifty yeara petroleum
wells and sands will be negligible.
Tlii-n petrol, kerosene, toluene, pile-'
not, paraffin nnd other petroluem must-
he distilled from coal or oil shales.*
There is enough fuel oil and petrol
in Alberta's eoal dQJKMlU to provide j
fntI oil and petrol for the World for
a country or two even with treble the
i pri'scni  consumption,
The marvellous wealth of eonl Ib
, chiefly on the Kast slope of the lio.lt-
Ie8i  where mining nnd carbonization
1 of the conl can be. most economically
: secured.   There ure four railroad lines
already linking Alberta to the Pacific
through the lowest passes of the Rock-
i les. Alberta bus immensiv hydro-el-
! ectric power of her own and at her
Western gates ure the greatest water

i prophet to foretell that n day will
i come when the whole World of the
! Pacific will be drnwln1.; its fcl oil and
1 petrol and Its toluene nnd .phenol and
sulphate   of  ammonia   from   Alberta.
The pioneers treking westward from
I Kentucky and lown may not know nil
| this but they don't know that Albert--
j has the richest and most prolific grain
j fields and meadows of the World.
