Smuts' Majority Growing—A Victory for Generous Policy of British
London, Feb. 10.—Up to midnight Gen. Smuts hts a plurality of
eighteen seats or a majority over

Sooth Africa to the empire, tbe
people of the Union have made an
emphatic declaration of their desire
to maintain the imperial connection,
but the future plaoe of South Africa
. within the empire will be made by
no one for her."
"She will define her pltce for herself, and no one of British citizenship is better qualified to guide her
in the process than Gen. Smuts."
The News adds tbtt it is doubtful whether domestic affairs will permit Premier Smuts to attend the
imperial oonferenenoe in London in
New York, Feb 10.—New York
newspapers, dealing editorially with
the South African elections, are of
the opinion that Gen. Smuts' apparently great victory is more than a
penontl or even a  party iriumpb.
"The reaslt is a victory for the
generous policy of British liberalism
toward the Teal-speaking peoples
after tbe Boer war, aod by analogy,
for popular government and bome
rule in suoh oases,"says tbe World.
"Publio opinion in the United
States will commend and congratu
late 'the other U. S. A.'—tbe Union
of South Africa—for deoidibg, in
Gen. Smuts' words, 'to cooperate in
a league of free states io which fate
has out her destiny.'"
The World continues:
"South Africa ia as self-determined ai Canada and has t brilliant
future, for which she chiefly needs
peaoe, cooperation and a prudent
attention turned to home ques
The New York Times considers
thesuccesa of Gen.Smuts as a "salutary example to Ireland," and
hopes "ber cool-headed sons will be
encouraged by the eleotion in South
Africa to withstand cbe extremists
who talk insanely of the secession
of Ireland from tbe empire.''
"If the new government oan command a really working majority, it
should be able to accomplish much
good for the commonwealth, whicb
has been left witb new opportunities
and new responsibilities as the re
suit tslXi}. war," says the Mail.
The newspaper adds tbat Gen.
Smuts' victory, by gaining tbe confidence of tho best minds among
both the British and Dutch elements) should'result in closer union.
' Our own history tells us that along
thia line is tbe only promise of political and economic advancement
for South Africa."

seeing that the upset price is reached."
There will be about 1100 acres offered for sale at tbe auotion in

Ottawa, Feb. 8.—Tbe possibility
of an early dissolution of parliament witb an election in June, is
being canvassed today. Tbe result
in the West Peterboro election,while
wbat might fairly bave been antici
pated so far as the government candidate was concerned, witb Mr.
Burnham in tbe field, has bad a cumulative effect perhaps greater than
its actual political significance war
rants. The fact that tbe Montreal
Gazette is calling for a general elec
tion draws attention to the course
of by elections since 1917. Out of
fifteen contests, tbe government hss
held five seats, four of which were
contested by ministers; has lost six
and gained none. The Liberals have
held three, lost none, and gtined
one. The Farmers bave gained five
and.Laborone. The government ma
jority io the house is now normally
about twenty five, but there are a
number of government supporters
wbo are sick or absent, aod for
wbom it is doubtful if tbe Liberals
will be inclined to supply pairs,,
wbich reduces the majority to about
twenty. This is a reduction from a
majority around seventy tbree
with whicb the government came
back from the country in 1917.
It is now suggested tbat the coming session may be a brief one witb
a dissolution in April or May, and a
general election in June, without the
passage of either a redistribution
measure or tariff revision. In tbe
meantime cabinet reconstruction,
wbich has been persistently urged
on the premier by his friends, has
become increasingly difficult, in
volving, as it would, further by-
elections, and it would seem as
tbough t general election might be
tbe wiser move, so far as the government is concerned.
The general opinion in politioal circles here, however, is that suoh a
move would not result in any clarification of the present obscure situation, but rather intensify it, as the
probability is the result would be
tbat no party would have t cletr
working majority.
Cabinet Will Probably Be
Reconstructed as a Result of the Peterqoro
Montreal, Feb. 10.—An immedi
ate reconstruction of tbe Meighen
cabinet is foreshadowed in an in
spired Ottawa dispatch printed in
the Star tonight. Definite announce
ments are expected hourly. The
correspondent says:
"The air is full of rumors of cabi
net reconstruction involving some
resignations and new appointments,
and before the next edition of the
Star appears today there is likely to
be some important newa. It will not
be an announcement of dissolution
and a general election.
"Premier Meigben is sustaining
bis reputation for courage tnd optimism. He is as light-hearted as a
boy and ready to face anything. He
is taking tbe Peterboro result simply
as ao incident. He does not seem to
consider the matter at all alarming.
"If tbe Liberals bad lost Peterboro it is reported 'hat Mackenzie
King would bave resigned and Mr,
Fielding would have taken his
women   present but  the  witness
swore constantly.
"It will be twenty-five or fifty
years before Pershing's place in history is fixed," he said. "He could
not have won the. war bad he sought
to put popularity above duty. And
let me tell you—the doughboys now
complaining will live to see the day
when tbey will be proud they fought
under him."
"Look at the pinhead politicians
who are raising hell about promotions for men who earned them in
France," he exclaimed. "They're
doing it for petty reasons. It's a
dirty shame. I wasn't in the regular
army, but I can be fair."
Tbe committee was told "the
neit war" would "break out overnight" and tbat the army and navy
probably would get into a row as to
wbich was to boss the affair.
General Dawes called tbe United
States aviation program "a terrible
failure," largely because of "over
confidence and inexperience."

of tbe report that the Hope-Princeton route would be chosen.
"Nor ie tbere any ground for the

•The matter has not been settled by
tny means, and there is not tbe
slightest resson for snyone sttting

been decided upon.
"Last year we announced tbat our

of tbe various routes, and until that
was done tbere would be no decision."

ion's most valuable resources, the interests of
true conservation demand an immediate ex
tension rather than a restriction of development. It has, therefore, been an important
feature of the commission's work to promote
such development by giving thc widest possi
ble publicity to the data it has obtained relating to the extent, situation and characterof
potential resources. The publications issued
by the commission cover a wide diversity of
subjects and have, been compiled especially
for the purpose of rendering them of practical
value to the business interests engaged in the
development of water dowers, forests and
other resources.

declined to discuss such a possibility, there is
a strong section among government supporters
which favors an appeal to tho people, and
adoption of such a course would not cause
much surprise in well-informed quarters. If
the government decides to dissolve, dissolution probably will come following the passing

Sir Henry Drayton on
Retail Apple Prices
Speaking recently at a bauquet to the two
hundred and fifty delegates to the Eastern Ontario and Ottawa district convention of retail
merchants, in Brockville, Ont., Sir Henry
Drayton, minister of finauce, in the course of
his remarks.asked if the retail merchants could
not do something further towards helping
economic conditions in Canada. Fo.r instance,
he said, the west (meaning the prairies) was
particularly sensitive about the question of
apples, and the people felt that they were paying too much for Canadian fruit. A box of
apples in Winnipeg, including heating and ser-
vine on the railways, sold to the retailer for
$2.73. The complainant in the particular case
he had in mind said that one box held 160
apples. At that rate Jonathans would cost
about 1.7 cents each, say If cents. They sold
to the consumer at 5 cents or even, in some
cases, at three <for 25 cents.
"Somethiug came in between that box of
apples delivered in Winnipeg at If cents per
apple and their selling price at three for 25
cents. You gentlemen know about that—I
don't. The only first-hand information I have
is that one thing complained" about was that
the duty on apples would add to the cost of
those three apples for 25 cents about three-
fifths of acent because, taking the same figure,
a 30 per cent duty would work out at less than
one-third of a cent an apple."
Sir Henry went on to point out some extra vagnnces in fruits and vegetables purchased
in the United States by Canada, one of the
best fruit and vegetable growing countries in
the world. Agricultural and vegetable products mainly food, increased by 23 millions
over the last year, or 23 per cent increase.
Were not a lot of these things entirely unnecessary? In 1018, Canada imported three millions worth of tomatoes, $766,000 worth of
onions and $12,000,000 worth of other vegetables. Last year Canada imported $14,000,
000 worth of fresh fruit, and this is one of the

.At the annual meeting of a leading Canadian bank held recently, one of the speakers
directed attention to the need for more thorough investigation of Canada's natural resources as an essential prelude to the greater
development of these resources. The essence
of his statement was to the effect that, in this
matter of securing greater knowledge and
greater development of natural resources,
Canada should wake up. During the past
decade the staff experts of the commission of
conservation have been engaged in the constant study ofthe extent and character of Canada's resources and ofthe problems associated
witlrtheir efficient utilization. Result's .of the
commission's studies have indicated very
clearly that, in regard to many of the Domin-
do, just let us go on as we are doing. If you
want to see the Canadian dollar righted, you
must see to it that instead of seeing jt attenuated across tbe line, it shall stay at home and
make another Canad'an dollar. This matter of
exchange is costing us millions of dollars."
The Kelowna Courier makes the following
comment on Sir Henry's remarks:
The minister of finance made an extraordinary slip of the tongue, for a cabinet minister,
in stating the l*ate of duty on apples as 30 per
cent. The correct rate is 30 ct^nts per box,
which, upon a box of 100 applas, would work
ont at less than one-fifth of a cent per apple.
The size quoted of HJ0 is large for Jonathans,
for which the government minimum standatd
is 188.

The Premier Producing Seed.
Just how profitable careful, systematic farming can be made in
Western Canada is instanced in the
success of a disciple of Seager
Wheeler, the wheat wizard of world
renown, who has carefully followed
in the footsteps of his model until
as the result of this year's crop, he
finds himself in a position to retire,
make a world tour, and settle with
his family at Nice, Southern France.
Coming from across the line, William Hopkins commenced farming
at Kinhop, an elevator siding in Saskatchewan, on the Goose Lake Lino,
in 3905, and, in the course of his
operations, acquired 17G0 acres
which he cultivated, summer fallowing 500 acres each summer. II
speaks well for the country that in
all these years he never experienced
a crop failure nnd in thc only poor
year recorded, that of 1910, the yield
of tho farm cleared all expenses.
Three years ago Mr. fiopkins, a
zealous student of scientific farming
and a stern advocate of selective
seed, purchased Red Bobs seed from
Seager Wheeler paying $32.50 per
bushel for it. A year later he
bought a supply of the Kitchener
strain from the same source at $10
per bushel. Mr. Wheeler's wheat, it
may be stated, is the premier producing need of the world, having secured for his farm at Rosthern,
Sask., several international world's
prizes nnd achieving a world's record yield of 85 bushels per acre.
Results in Mr. Hopkins C8M certainly justified the expenditure and
the fine type of crops produced previously were considerably enhanced
by the plump heavy seeds wrjich
weighed over 6T> pounds to the
bushel. This year, the crop consisted of 50 acres oi Red Kobs wbich
yielded 45 bushels to the acre and
430 acres of Kitchener which returned 10 bushels from every acre.
In contrast, 4K0 acres seed to Marquis, which owing to circumstance*
it was found necessary tp stubble
in, gave a yield of 15 bushels to the
This year, after threshing, having operated bis land for fifteen
years, Mr. Hopkins sold out to
Cmrge Leonard, who hnd managed
it for him for a number of vears.
Tbe price of exchange was S 3 per

income yearly. Toil for him and his

Montreal to join the Newfoundland
sealers at St. Johns, the augmented

Hitherto the locating of seal herds
has been done by men in the rigging
of ships whose range ia naturally

do with planes, "spotting" being possible by this means within a radial
of fifty miles. The method, then, ls

seals wlih a market value of $278,000.
The Industry on the island accounts
for the employment of 1,085 men and
numerous vessels take part In the
often hazardous undertaking.
The seal Industry originated In
Newfoundland in 17G3, and for some
years after that the annual catch-did
not exceed throe or four thousand
skins per season. With the increasing demand for oil and skins, however, the industry grew, and more
men and vessels came to engage exclusively In It. By the beginning of
the nineteenth century, the annua!
catch exceeded 00,000 skins, and larger and larger vessels were built for
the pursuit, llll later these wen
superseded by fast steamt'.s. At the
present time, though there are some
sailing vessels still engaged, the
steamer is tho big unit In the activity
and accounts for five-sixths of thc
Of late years tho seal catch of New-
loundland has fallen off somewhal
due lo the heavy tdll and Indiscriminate killing which is now regularized
by legislation. The 1008 catch, foi
instance, numbered 213,803 seals and
that of the following yoar 209,320
animals, A single vessel has been
known to bring In ta St. Johns n
catch of lii.oou and a total ot nearly
carries five men besides the pilot and
mechanic, descends to the Ice where
the animals, aro despatched by bullets from pump guns. The skins are
then packed in bundles about the
base of poles to which a flag is attached. This kind of hunting continues to the end of the season when
the Ice breaks up, the hunters pro-1
ceeding from place to place transported by plane as new herds are
"spotted". At the close of the season the vessels visit the Ice breaks!
and pick up the bundles, being ma-'
terially assisted by the planes in lo-i
eating and signalling.
Close upon the announcement o(j
the projected activities of these avia-i
tors there arrived ln St John's two,
"blimps" or war airships, a present
to Newfoundland from the imperial
Government These it is intended to
use in the seal fisheries ln the same
manner, the cost of operation, estimated at $60,000, being borne jointly
by the Newfoundland Government
and the owners of the sealing vessel*
assisted In their catch.
The co-operation of the government
in this new venture would augur a
belief in the practicability and success of the novel enterprise, and
doubtless their success, which la
highly probable, will bave a marked
effect upon sealing on both coasts,
and tend to bring about a revolution
in huntinx methods.   __.._.•.._»_(
