He heartily  greeted Ronald as he advanced, and  without waiting on ceremony, invited  him- to dismount and put his horse in'  to have him fed. Ronald, thanking  him. readily accepted the hearty invitation, at the same time feeling not  the slightest aversion to changing his  proposed lodging place for the night.  Leading  his:  horse   he  Allowed   the  man to the stables, which stood some  distance to. tile left";of the house. ._         Arte*-" attending"/to^ttie-; horse  they | -Ronald ^������������������ "then, introduced'"to" Mrs.  overland -with his outfit of two cows  and six horses front Brandon to the  Moose    Mountain,    district. ���������    Even in  'those early days this district was re-.  ported t^offer, special inducements to  intending settlers. With their chattels consisting of a few household effects, implements and provisions  loaded on two wagons, they made the  overland journey of one hundred and  sixty miles -in the early- spring. They*  reached their destination in time to  cultivate a few acres of land for pota-'  toes anc some grain to do "them for  the'coming-year. He said: r'My..wife  and daughter fancied living in the hills  rather than on the open prairies. They  preferred living among the hills jwrhere  the timber, the hills and the valleys  reminded them more of their old home  in Ontario. They chose this spot on  the shore of this lake for our home,  and I think it was a wise movefvfor-  here . we.,'., have lots-of- feed for our  stock, and wood is plentiful and bandy  to our house."  After a; short time tlieir conversation was Interrupted by the appear -  anee of Mrs. Eraser, who,; in-announcing that dinner was ready, remarked  on, the   delayed   absence   of   "Mary  welcome, to strangers ��������� and Ronald  was no't in herJhoine many minutes before feeling as'much at ease as an old  acquaintance.  *.Mr. Fraser,'although not showing  any -" apparent uneasiness, hurried  through his meal and soon, excused  himself." and' said -that he would saddle  up .one of his _ horses and go out and  meet his daughter 0������efore it became  -dark. "^ou- make" out your supper,  i I������ii*. Ivlacjctae,5-' he -said, -and don't  hurry. I**shaH be back in a . little  while. My daughter may be having  some trouble -in driving the horses  homes." * "*  - Night was failing, yet there was no  sign of the return of either father or  daughter,. . Tired as he was after his  long day's ride, Ronald was restless  and._ill at ease.. The vision of the  young woman he met so, short a time  ago was ever before him. Thoughts  of the hidden dangers that lurked in  the vicinity from horse thieving bandits added to his uneasiness. Yielding at lastgto his uneasiness and sense  of fear respecting her safety, he told  Mrs. "Fraser that he would saddle up  his -horse and go out and meet them  in case his asisstance -yyas needed.  "Mr, MacRae," she saidK "it is very  kind of you to offer tp do so. I am  sure you mustTbe tired alter your long  ride -today, but I am very queasy  about my-daughter. She should have  been home long before nowi Of course  she is used to being out riding over  the country and is likely sale enough,  but there are always dangers from accidents.

"Within a few minutes he was cantering up the trail by  which he had come, well mounted on ]  a fresh,horsei and fully armed.  About7a,, mil������ out on the ^trall he  heard Mr. Fraser calling his daughter's name, ^but received no answering  call. Hallooij-ig to him in the darkness, he soon joined the older rider  and together they continued the  search.. They roamed over the hills  in..the 'vicinity, where Ronald had seen  her disappear a few hours before.  Shots were fired; but the only answer  was.the re-echoing sounds of their  own shots as they reverberate"! from*  hill to hill in the .stillness of the night.  In "this futile manner they continued  to wahder" about in: the darkness till  well on in the night. Tlieir search  having^proved-''--.nil>^!Xftig they decide-  to return homeland make preparations  to resume the search at the earliest  dawn, in case she had not returned  home during their absence. " When  they reached the house the anxious  mother was still up awaiting their return. When she saw them returning  unaccompanied by the^ massing daughter she -'became greatly distressed.  But, finally, encouraged-by the assurance of the men she became more  composed and assisted in the preparations that were^being made to resume  the search In the early morning.  "While the two- men. entertained no  Illusions as to the daggers that surrounded the daughter, they^were still  hopeful that no immediate harm would  befall .her. Though the parents feared that she had met with an accident  it was "the settled conviction of the  younger man that she was held captive ln the hands of the horse thieves  that were reported to be in the vicinity. This opinion was concurred in  bgr the father, when it "was pointed but  to hint that If she had. met with an  accident the horse would have turned  up. Convinced that such, was the  case, Ronald  took  the Initiative  and  -gave full direction for the preparations  that were being inade. The older  man in his" confused and agitated  state of mind yielded readily to his  directions.    '  Ronald was convinced that after  making a coup that meant the capture  of a^ number of valuable horses, the  outlaws wouid not remain long in the  vicinity of their. crime, but would  strike for the United States ."boundary without delay, and would likely  detain the girl only long_ enough to  make a safe getaway. He surmised  that their policy would be to "put as  much distance aa possible between  themselves and the scene of their  crime before effective measures for  pursuit could be put Into 'effect. Laying his plans according to^ these conclusions he stowed sufficient provisions into their haversacks to last  "I love living |n the country," said  the man \&o owes a lot pf-"xnohey in  the Broadway district.

Thus in the intense darkness preceding the dawn the two men started  off on an expedition surrounded' hy  dangers, the consequence of which no  one could foretell. The one man animated by parental" affection for his  absent daughter, his only child, was  ���������impatient under the delay caused by  the darkness of night, and chafing un-'  der the" restraint it ^'imposed; -the  other, and the younger man a stranger, moved by^fe'elings that he himself  could not explain, was equally eager  to be on the move to succor a young  woman in distress.

Practically every province in the  Dominion has had a most unfortunate experience with these self right  eons, purity leagues which have  entered as a third party into the  political life of the various provinces, giving as their reason that the  two old parties had become corrupt  and that they themselves represented the.acme of righteousness in  political life.  ^ith the first of their claim*- no  one seems to disagree for certainly  corruption seems to exist in equal  and:sufficient quantities in both of  the old parties. Unfortunately  every third party, which has come  into existanee, has developed ol  most immediately an equal amount  of corruption and, in addition, have  shown a disastrous inefficiency in  handling the affairs of government.  That the Provincial Party of  British Columbia is going to turn'  out to be just another "rotten party," and if elected will saddle this  yrovinoe with another "rotten failure" seems to be guaranteed by the  dishonest manner in which they  are -seeking to influence the voters  aa shown by tho instance given  above.  On one point wo entirely agra*  with the Provincial Party elaEras,  namely, that our politics have become corrupt, and equally so  whether we investigate tho Conservative or liberal brand. We also agree that a remedy must bo  found but are certain that that,  remedy will never bo found in the  creation of a third party, for tho  oimplo reamori that no mafctor how  good tho intentions mmy be of tho  originators of these partins they aro t gj  .quite unable to kocp polititml mart-1%iiHHiinHisi  *���������* w       ���������.

Possibly before  these-words appear, in print the- die will have been cast-for good or ill, .but  regardless- of .what that decision may be. we are convinced that sooner or  later the views herein expressed must, and will, prevail. /'  The'-confer-encfe to which reference - is made is that between the coal  operators'^ or mine owners, of Alberta and the officials of what is known as  District 18 of the United Mi���������e Workers' of America; in"other words,"the  miners*Union. On April 1 the existing contracts and wage agreements between the mine operators and the Union expire, and the conference is proceeding with the object Of negotiating new agreements.  The  Union  leaders   are   reported  as insisting upon   the  maintenance  ofr"  the existing high wage schedules, andjn so doinj-^are standing on the declaration of policy of the recent convention of the United Mine Workers at  Indianapolis against any reduction in wages ,and a four-year contract.       In  other words, the demand is that the peak war wages shall continue to prevail.  One of the forceful arguments advanced by-the Alberta miners in support of the "unusually high wages they now receive is that mining operations  are only carried on to full capacity for a matter of the six or seven winter  months, and that-during that period they mus*, earn enough to maintain  themselves and families for twelve months.  Within recent years, and particularly last -year, vigorous efforts have been  made-, to ������vercoK^e this difficulty and, by finding an all the year round market  for Alberta coal, guarantee contiguous employment to the miners, and also  through the .resultant enormous increase, in production reduce overhead costs  per ton of coal mined, give needed stability to. the industry, and reduce the  selling price to the consumer.  To realize this object two main difficulties have to be overcome. The  necessary market for all the. coal Alberta can mine exists in Ontario and  Western Quebec. Ontario is clamoring for Alberta coal, because experimental shipments and tests-have demonstrated its quality as satisfactory.  But Ontario is a long-distance away, and the cost of transporting the coal so  excessive as to make the price" prohibitive in competition with coal from the  United-States. ���������-.'".,.-  The'second'difficulty is found in the abnormally high wages paid coal min-.  ers in Alberta which makes the cost of coal at tile pit, mouth high, and which,  coupled with transportation costs, makes its marketing and sale in Ontario  impossible. '���������-'-' v."  The result is that with billions of-tons of coat in Alberta, Ontario continues year after year paying $150,000,000 to the United States for coal, while  the Alberta mines close down or on short time for one-half of each.. year.  Canada's adverse balance of trade with the United States is thus.swollen, our  meney is drained away across the line. United States miners are kept busy.  while Canadian miners are idle, and United States railways get traffic which  our railways ought to have and need, and Ontario's industries are in jeopardy  and may be-ruined and thousands \o������' workers thrown, out of employment if  at any time conditions develop which may force the prohibition of export or  coal by the United States. 7 -  But if, instead of demanding the highest wages paid to any group of  miners on the American continent, the Alberta miners would agree to accent  a reasonable, wage schedule, the cost of coal at the pit mouth could be reduced,-and-by continuing mining operations throughout the summer months  permit o"' the rail movement of coal to Ontario during the slackest months in  /f'"  Western, transportation, activities, and thereby make possible a lower freight  rate. Thus the two main obstacles to 'Ontario being supplied on a commercial basis wiii* Alberta coal would be reduced if not entirely overcome.  WUh all the* year round employment guaranteed to them the Alberta  miner.- and then  ]y ar a reduced" wage Than with tho now prevailing high wage, but with steady  employ naent Cot* only about half the year. Full time' operation of the mines  would ;-������ace *.h������:* coal industry of Alberta on a firm foundation which It.has  hit her-o- lacked, would encourage capitis 1 avid development, thereby creating  raor' -itul-more employment, and. as'already f.tat'ed, reduce overhead costs  of prod-set ion s-.o thnr th**- Ontario market could be served, and, what is of  equal iBY-por'ance, tin-* presi-nt high price ol' coot lo the prairie consumer  reduced  10 a reasonable fh-ure.

The total production of coal for the  year was 6,866,924 $ons, 1,382,788 being  dispose- of for consumption in Alberta, 1,937,753, for other provinces  and 83,557 tons, in the United States.  To the railway companies 3,11*0^12:1  tons were sold. The total production for the coal mines in Alberta during 1923 was 890,491 tonsy over.; the  total for 1922. Up to th^ehd of 1922^  the report cites Dominion statistics  to show that "Alberta mines since 1886  produced 69,849,510 tons of coal to the  approximate value of ?121,715,815.

The  -hogs were left at the work, for ten  days, beginning Sept. 25: . They averaged iiO pounds when starting and  gained an aggregate of 1,200 pounds  during the period, or close to7 two  pounds-^.per day for each animal.  Valuing the gains a,t 7 cents per pound  would make the total return $84, or  $56 per acre,"*wltii all costs of harvesting the grain eliminated.   "  Russia's Debts to England  ��������� and Canada, indicate that the Canadian farmer, can produce wheat i'ari  more cheaply than can the farmer in  the United States. Larger yields per  acre, lower taxation and lower freight  -rates, resulted, in the year 1&23, in  the Canadian farmer _being able to  produce a bushel of wheat for' 46 cents  less than the. United States farmer.  It was shown .that on an~eleven-year  average * the    production    cost    ot   a  bushel of wheat in the United States  was $1.58 as against $1.22 in Canada  and   that in  1923,  while it  cost  the  United Slates farmer $1.49 to produce  a ..bushel of wheat the Canadian farmer  was able to produce it for $1.03. Canadian farmers dan get their wheat to  its outlet very much    more    cheaply  than can United States' farmers. The  average cost of-.w_.eat transportation  in the United, States is 1 cent for 37  miles, while Jn' Canada a bushel can  be carried for 66 miles for the same  cent.      The average price of all land  both cultivated and    uncultivated    in  the  United" States is S69.38 "per acre.  whereas the average    priee   of    farm  land  actually   occupied  in . Canada  is  but $40 per acre over the entire Dominion;       The average price  of land  devoted to wheat growing in the United States is $92 per acre and in Can- '  ad a $43- per acre.     The yield per acre  in recent .years  has  been  higher  in  Canada than in the United States.'  Looking" to tlie future of Canadian  agriculture the figures are encouraging as illustrating^ Canada's ability  to compete in the wheat and flour  markets of the world. But thej- are  perhaps even more significant as itt-  dical!ng7that wlieat production is "being discouraged fn the -United States  by economic conditions and that country, with its increasing population,  will, before many years, become an  importer rather than an"' exporter ot.  wheat and flour, and a big market for  the Canadian .farmer.
