No Pushee!   No Pullee!
A very exciting Curling match took
place Christmas afternoon. A rink
consisting of Percy Stanford, Percy
Boyd, Harry Pughe and Sam King
challenged all comers to a match, the
victors to be hauled around town in a
cutter for one hour by the defeated
team.
The challange was accepted by A.
Kenny, Budd Griffith,   E. W.   Griffith
and Jack Buckham. The game resulted in a win for the former team, consequently Buck's team had to do the
pulling which was no small task owing
to the fresh fall of snow. After about
ten minutea of hard pulling the horses
stopped for wat«r and when it was time
to resume duties, the horses had
mysteriously disappeared and were no
where to be found.
James J. Hill's Speech on Canada.
Last year's   Wheat  Crop.
According to t.ie final and official
figures of the C. P. R., as supplied to
G. M. Bosworth from the Winnipeg
office, the total value of the western
(train yield for 1908 is $126,168,048,
which is something like $ 0,000,000
ahead of any previous record, and
about $30,000,000 better than the 1907
crop. This is not only caused by the
extent of the harvest, but by the fact
that prices for wheat and other grains
are ruling high this year. The increased money whioh is being put into
circulation by the present year's crop
Is shown by a comparison of the valus
of this year's crop with that of last
jfear, which was a comparatively small
one, and that of 1906. which was considered excellent. The crop ef 1907
was sold for $96,401,132, while that of
1906 brought to the western farmers
$98,872,£87.
Naturally, wheat represents the
greater part of the cash receipts. Tl a
total western wheat crop return is estimated at $87,268,040, within ten
million dollars of the total grain values
of last year. The oat crop is valued
at'$27,787,816'; barley at $8,910,700, and
flax at $2,201,491. A significant feature of the crop returns is that the
wiiater'-whaatcropis valued at $3,462,-
045, where a few years ago it was not
thought that winter wheat could be
grown at all in the west.
Put in bushels-the way in which the
railways handle the grain-the figures
are not less empraasive. The total
grain yield of the west amounted to no
less than 223,737,649 bushels-itlmost a
quarter of a billion. This was divided
as follows: Wheat 106,863,262 bushels
oats, 92,626,064 bushels; barley, 22,-
276,762 bushels, and flax, 2,001,491
bushels.
Divided among the three western
grain provinces the figure show that
while Manitoba is fairly wheet country,
it is not leading in other cereals, while
Saskatchewan is fast gaining in the
matter of wheat production. Ih wheat
Manitoba produced this year 68,071,095
bushels; Saskatchewan, 48,540, and
Alberta, 5,242,(168. Saskatchewan led
in oats, with 41,565,386 bushels, while
Manitoba was a clo7e second with 38,-
912,545. Alberta's oat crop was 12,-
957,125. Manitoba took the lead in
barley with 18,140,215 bushels, Saskatchewan 2,694,550, and Alberta
1,441,987. In i he comparatively minor
crop of flax Saskatchewan led with
1,570,106 bushels, Manitoba 268,466 and
Alberta only 62,910.
To produce this enormous quantity
of grain nearly ten million acres of
land were required, the exact acreage
u ider crop being 9,420,913 acres. Of
this more than half or 5,771,874 Nacres
were devoted to wheat, 2,682,941 to
oats, 885,500 to barley, and 180,699 to
flax. Roughly speaking, this shows
that the average wheat crop in the
west was about 18$ bushels par acre.

"Our trade with Canada is exceeded
in volume only by that with Great Britain and Germany. We think it is
worth while to negotiate reciprscity
treaties with France- which the Senate quietly pigeonholes;—but our busi
ness with Frar.ce last year fell short
nf that with Canada by more than
$ls,(l00,000. We are spending some
$3000,000 on the Panama canal in the
hope of enlarged trade with the west
coast of South America' Our combined
trade with all the countries on both
coasts of South America in 1908 was
only a little over $200,0000. With all
Asia in 1907 we did but $50,000,000 mora
than with Canada. Her total foreign
trade with all countries has grown 3
per cent in the last ten years,
I believe that the most natural, the
most rational, the most highly profitable commercial status between Canada and the United States is absolute
freedom of trade. Pending the arrival
of ' hat, I be.iave that those who have
the Interests of both countries at heart
should work for the establishment of a
trade re iprtxity in all natural products
as ample and generous as public opinion
will approve.
That commerce must eventually move
unrestrained between these two
peoples is self *vident. Why not strike
off the shackles and let it move freely
instead of payihg the heavy penalty
of delay? I do not believe that there
is one valid argument in favor ot a
system that makes our international
boundary line bristle with custom
houses and forces every dollar's worth
of trade between them to show its passport and pay its enterance fee, I do
not bolieve that there is one sound objection on the side of Canada or the
United States to fuller and freer intercourse.
Whatever be the strength or weakness of the economic policy known aa
protection, it has no meaning or effect
as applied to either one of these
countries aiainst the other. The
assumption of some fixed variation in
the wage level is nonsense. Wages do
vary, just as they vary between New
York, and Colorado, but tneir average
under similar conditions is the same in
the i wo rountries.
British Columbia Apples were Clean.
: The steamer Waiwera, which reached Sydney from Puget sound carried
20,000 cases of American npples. Of
these 5,000 were dropped at New
Zealand, and 15,000 taken to Sydney,
When they were discharged in Sydney
cocoons of codlin moth were found
among the joints of a certain number
of cases, state mail advices just received from Australia.
It is stated that the moth has left
the apples, as it does when they are
ripe, and the grub is found in cocoons
in the crevices of a certain number of
the cases. About 8,000 to 10,000 cases
were, therefore, unpacked before a
government inspector. From 30 to 40
men and girls were busy unpacking
them. The paper wrapper was taken
off each apple, put into a sack and
burned. All the wooden cases, in some
small proportion of which the white cocoons could be seen along th* cracks
and edges, were being soaked in boiling water. The apples were after-
wsrds wrapped in new paper and packed back in the same cases after boiling,
and either sold on the spot or passed in
to cold storage for sale.
In the cases standing about after the
boiling there could be Seen remains of
occasional cocoons. In eath case visible the grub w»as boiled dead. About
8,000 to 10,000 of the cases were boiled.
The method is that the inspector opens
five or six cases in every lot.. If he
finds any moth in that lot then every
case is boiled. If he does not the consignees claim it as a clean shipment.
Mr. Hunter, oae of the firm of
Walker & Co., the owners of the apples,
said: "These are American apples.
The Canadian o..es from Lord Aberdeen's orchard by the steamer Marama
were a beautiful lot. There is a pest
law in America, but at the stage when
the apples have to be picked for sending to Anstralia, it is impossible to see
the moth. As the apple gets ripe on
the voyage the grub bores his way out
and gets into the ca«e. By the time
the dargo arrives the grub is in the
I case, not in the tipples. The cocoons
lare in the crevices.    By boiling the
| s
case and burning the paper you get rid
of every infection.   There cah be no
' harm done by this shipment."

The Montreal Gatette of Friday last
fontains the following refi-ienr to the
Conservative leai|ei*ship and. Sir. Hibbert Tupper as a possibility for the
poiition.   '
Sir CharltB Hibbert Tupper, ex-
minister of justice, ii an out-and-out
uncompromising supporter of Mr. R.
L, Borden, M. P., for Halifax and
Carleton, as the leader of the Conservative party in the House of Commons,
and he does net doubt but that the opposition members of the newly-elected
house will rally around Mr. Borden at
the approaching meeting of parliament
and support him as loyally as in the
past.'
Although fifty-four, Sir Hibhert.
Tupper has changed little since the
days the Liberal-Conservative party,
and, as when he wss in the fighting
line of his name" has been mentioned
n connection with the leadership, his
loyal adherence to the cause of his
friend, Mr. Borden, -"ill be read with
interest throughout the country. Up
to last evening the ex-minister had declined all attempts at an interview, but
when a positive change was mooted
this was too much for the son of the
Cumberland war horse of other days,
and ha proceeded to exprers his admiration for Mr. Borden in language
which cannot be misunderstood.
'-To be sure," said Sir Hibbert, "we
all feel a little sore, snd none more bo
than our friends who were defeated on
the Wth of October. That, however,
will right itself in coarse of time. Mr.
Borden is bead and shoulders above any
