Now this, increase in ^imported  staple food products makes clear  th.'j unsatisfactory condition of agri  cellurc in the province. According  to the budget, the increase in the  last; two years is over three million  but according to corrected statistics it would appear that this in  crease is nearer twenty or ILk'ty  million   dollars., x  The agricultural community of the  pi evince is not contented, or -flourishing. Increase in cultivated greas  does not keep pace with the development of. the province in other  directions.

MEMORANDUM OF MEMORIAL of  the   Government- of British Columbia   on the   Agricultural  situation.  - Gentlemen,  The   members   of   the  agricultural  community  ,  desire     to   state   that  they   are   uot   unappreciative of   the  excellent   work   done   by  the   depart  ment   of   agriculture    in   this     province    Especially   would   they( corn-  men 1 and   endorse   the   activities  of  the   agricultural   commission at this  present   time.      Much   valuable data  are   being" accumulated and   the findings    of     the     commission    should  prove  most   valuable   to   the, solution of   many of   the problems     connected   withthe ' industry   of  agriculture.  At the same time they desire lo  poii=t out that 'agricultural conditions at present are most unsatisfactory and that something should  be done at" once to relieve ,the situation.  Notwlthslandhg the growth and  expansion of the province generally  and the large ,ricrcase in the consumption of agricultural products a  decided decrease in production, of  the staple articles of food is  showu by departm cntal statistics.  Dairying and stockraising have declined considerably. The totals forborne consumption show an alarming decrease in milk, cheese, and  butter.   The   total   in  1911   amouut-  Tbe primary cause of these unsatisfactory conditions is the lach of  markets We have never possessed  our own markets; they are in the  haiids   of   foreign   producers.  There is again, the utter lack Qf  organization and effective co-opera-  tioh among the farmers themselves such as become a common  place in   other -countries.  Finally,   the   commission   men  and   ���������-:i- ��������� respectfully   request     of   'the  wholesalers in the past have given  praclica-lly ho assistance to. home  producers and this is due, "to a  la'i',e extent, to the untrustwo"-  thy and unstable source of supply  Home producers it is" said, thro'  lack of organization and business  methods cannot be depended upon  to provide the home market with  a   regular   and   adequate   supply.  Among the remedies suggested is  the restoration of the lost l.alance  to bur own agricultural auJ industrial and commercial development.  Of late years great stress ha'<  betm laid upon and great attention  given to manufacture and conuner-"  ce while agriculture has been le't  generally to muddle along as best  it   could   ,  Bin -'agriculture cannot hold its  owi   une'e-rprcsent conditions. It  needs fostering and erJcouraging in  c'O'y   legitimate   way-   Among    the  suggested remedies, are the following' ,        ,��������� ���������   '   '  Shite assistance'.ii. theorganizing  and   marketing   of produce.-:  State   organizers   and    instructors!

Matson has advanced  the considerable sum of $5000 in order that the militia men who rencter  ed such valiant service "at Nanaimo  and Ladysmith should not ret ivn  home without a moiety - of their  pay. .That such an action should  ���������have ��������� been necessary, . owing to the  tardiness of the government in male  ing prompt provision for the men  is regrettable but this does not detract from the credit due to Mr.  Matson. He knew bow .serious a  cri.sio had arisen when the militia  men ~wero called out. He witnessed  the feats of the intrepidity and valour which   they   performed.���������Week.  The   majority   of   the    people     of  British   Columbia,  irrespective        of  party, heartily endorse the   actio - of  the   Attorney-General   in   connection  with   the   Vancouver    Island   strike.  The   reason   for   this   is   that, ���������   the  majority  of   the   people    oE    British  Cciumhia,irrespective   of   party,   arc  law-abiding   and   recognise...that   the  foundation    of   their   liberties      rest  o.i   the-   enforcement of   British law.  The   situation   was   one   of   extreme  . difficulty   and  delicacy.   On   Tuesday  . and   Wednesday   oE   the fatal     week  it   was   a   case   in   Nanaimo   Lady-  smith and   Extension    of   a   powder  mags/.ineand   a   torch' near   at hand  The   result hung   in  the balance.   A  little   more   pressure,    a few     more,  reckless   words   from    the agitators,  who   fomented   the strike,  and  Nanaimo would   have been in flames. The  same   fate   could   hardly    have  been  averted from   Ladyysmith and     Ex-  .tension.'   It is   a   matter of   the hi.  ghost-gratification that   at   this crisis    British   Columbia   had   at      the  helm a   man   of   intellect, of   sagacity and   of   couragejfor   it needed all  these   qualities   to   adopt the course  which   Mr.    Bowser   adopted without  a   moment's   hesitation. In this keun  insight, prompt decision   and courageous action he   showed   himself     to  be   nut   the   mock   "general"   which  his   political   opponents arc so   fond  of   dubbing him, but   a   real general  grasping   the   heavy    responsibilities  of   a i   administrative position     and  realizing the   only .effective and constitutional means of averting    a catastrophe.
