Fishermen's  Union: '..  Gentlemen,���Pursuant ito the agreement mado at, the conference held on  Saturday last, I have been Instructed  to submit the following proposition for  your consideration as a basis for prices  to be paid for sockeye salmonyduring  the coming season, ln the hope that an  amicable and mutually satisfactory settlement may ibe arrived at; There are  only two available methods for (fixing  prices^ for the entire season,'namely,  A Minimum Price  for the whole season and a sliding scale  based upon the total number of cases  packed from flsh caught ln .British Columbia waters With gill nets by Fraser  River fishermen.  ���, In  respect to  the  minimum  price,   I   am   instructed   to  point out that-no person can at: the  commencement of the season estimate  what the run will \be; consequently, it  is impracticable ~:to arrange   a price  whiich shall be satisfactory to the canners and the fishermen.     If the price  wasflxed low and a small run of flsh  occurred,    the    fishermen would earn  very small wages, whilstif the price,  was fixed to highi and a large run occurred,  the canners would  be  heavy  Over 500,000 up to 600,000 cases, 10c pel  flan.  The canners would point out that under the Fisheries act, sworn returns respecting the number of cases packed  havo to be made from each cannery,  and the books of the respective owners are open to inspection by government ofllcers; consequently no difficulty  can arise lu deciding thc number of  cases packed as soon as the season  closes. If the union prefers, the canners aro willing to pay on  '  The "Retort Count."  Should any fishermen wish for advances  during tbe season, these can be readily  be"ma<fe~oh.* the basis of,~say 10c per  flol,     n-nA   *\.f.   .!.��!

In a week the  membership  numbered. 1,000 men,  Including employees from: every branch  of the service, and quickly extended to  other parts of the system; and yet at  this stage there was no conscious effort to extend it beyond the;.Southem  Pacific system.    But it soon    spread  from one state to another, and is now  assuming national and reaching- out to  International dimensions.  In San Francisco one single division numbers 1,0001  men, and in Sacramento 2,000 men.are  Included in the Brotherhood. ."And now  we are In Canada,"   said   President  Eate3.'':A word aajtovourjsonaUtutloit.  iFhad been compiled by experienced  railroad men, and upon   which their  best thought had been bestowed.

The. folowing letter Is an acknowl  edgment :of the assistance, from Vancouver towards aiding the miners of  South Wellington, B.C., who have been  on strike .for the past ten months, and  who are.in consequence in a crippled  financial condition:  cheaply than Is possible; on the'Fraser  River. ���    ���  The Price of Canned Salmon  depends entirely upon the number of  cases packed. Thus, Jn 1300, the price  of the 1-pound tails ir. the United  Kingdom, in consequence of the; small  pack, rose for a time to 2Cs,: whllstthe  price this year for same goods Is now  only 18s, being a difference of 8s; or  nearly $2 per case. Had, therefore,  the canners dn 1901 paid the prices ruling In 1900, the loss to them would not  have been less than'$2,400,00, seeing  that the selling price for the 1901 pack  barely covers the actual'.cost.'of pro-  paid at the end of the season, wh"en  the final count has been made. The  above suggested, sliding scale has been  made after careful consideration by  the committee; who trust that the Fishermen's Union will see their way to accept it. Awaiting your early reply,  I remain, yours faithfully,  , ,W. S. BURDIS,  Secretary Fraser River Canners' Asso^  elation.  Vancouver, B.C., June 16, 1902.  FISHERMEN'S REPLY.  After considering the foregoing letter,  tho secretary was Instructed to reply  to the same, and say   that  the  prices  for salmon submitted by the association  were, in the lodge's opinion, too low to  deserve earnest consideration; that it  would be practically useless to recommend to the local lodges *thoIr acceptance, as no ad vantages ..have been offered to the union above non-resident  fishermen.    Furthermore, as the association has signified: its determination  not to advance the prices any further,  the grand, lodge   of the fishermen Vis  of the opinion that it is but a needless  waste of time and energy to, continue  the negotiations entered into. That the  association be: notified' that; the union,  will,   during   the   coming   season, be j  guided by temporary circumstances.  ��� ;The meeting then.adjourned until the  last Saturday of the month at 11a.m.,  at New'.Westminster. ' ���  low rates now prevailing.  The Building Laborers meet the second and fourth Thursday In each!  month. The initiation fee Is now $2.  The union is progressing rapidly,, the  membership being already a large one.  The Building Exchange, an organlsa-  tlon of the contractors, has appointed at  committee to meet a' similar committee  from the Building Trades council with  a view to holding a conference between  the two bodies.  The ranks of the Building Trades  council were further strengthened, by  the addition: of two delegates from the  International Stone-cutters' union, who  presented credentials and took: out  cards at the last meeting.  A union man in the building trade In  this city has now no need to lose time  by:tramping around the town looking  for a job. All he has to do is to report  to the business agent at union hall,  and he'll get all the cwork he : can; at��  tend to.

If one fish only was caught,  it, wouI-d cost $5,000; if 6,000 flsh only  were caught, they would cost $1 each;  If 25,000 were caught, they would cost  -20c each; 50,000 would cost 10c each,  and. 100,000 5c each. In order for British Columbia packers to compete with  the packers on the Sound on anything  like even terms, it is absolutely; necessary to adopt a scale of prices which  shall be proportionate to  : The Run of the Fish.  The sliding scale, as suggested by one  of your delegates appears - to be the  only one which will attain this end.  Your delegates personally expressed  themselves in favor of a sliding  _scale,y_whiohv_after^coiisideration;-mcets  with the approval of the canners because it divides the risk fairly between  the caners and the fishermen, and If thc  relative prices to be paid for fish are  properly adjusted, will Insure to the  fishermen a , fair wage In any event,  and save the canners from  .'��� ,      Loss ln Selling'  the pack. It is, therefore, to be hoped  that the Fishermen's Union will approve this mode of payment. The In-  teutlon ds that even In the,event of a  small run the fishermen shall obtain a  FROM ROSSLAND.  Rossland, June' 17.���Unionism at  Rossland is at a very low ebb. The  companies are blacklisting men by the  wholesale. It is getting'so bad that  they are afraid to open their mouths  If they are spoken to! ' When one  speaks he will look round^o see if anyone is liable to hear before answering.  A large number, thoughat heart union,  are afraid to. attend the" meetings. 'A  man applying for a, job-is requiredto  flrst fill out a blank giving his age, nationality and' previous position of service, whether a member of a union or  not, and when, what strike, if in any,  engaged, and where. The' boycott is  applied here openly. But our lawmakers are too blind to this pernicious  condition of things to pay any attention to the violation of the laws by  their friends. This is another strong  evidence for the necessity of independent, political: action.  Very satisfactory progiess continues  in the working out of the "card system." Only one or two failures to act  at the right moment have occurred, and  these were due.to the fact that all the  union men working on those jobs were  reont additions to trades unionism,  and were, consequently,"not fully alive  to the requirements of the "system.'  It's a caution how somejworking men  will flock Into the union; just as soon  as the "shoe pinches." They are falling over one another these busy day3  to join the' building trades unions in  this city.   Let the good work go on.  The Ccntractors" Association will  meet; the Building Trades: Council in  committee ������ regarding the card system  now being so successfully, enforced.; No  doubt a: better understanding, will: result to both parties.

Oh, you are not  willing to adopt such a dismal theory I  And yet thc world is full of skeptics. And lot me sny there is no  clais of people for whom f have a  wanner sympathy than for skeptics.  We do not know how to treat them.  We dcridu them, wc caricature them.  XVe, instead of taking thein by the  sort hiinil of Christian love, clutch  them with the iron pinchers of cc-  clesiaslicisni. Oh, if. you knew how  those men had fallen away from  Christianity and become skeptics you  would not bo so rough on them I  Some wero brought up in homes  where religion was overdone. The  moat wretched dny in the week was  tin ml ay. Religion was driven into  Clw.ni with a triphammer. They luul  si sinfeit of prayer meetings. Thoy  were r (.tiffed and choked with catechisms. They were told by llieir  parents that they were the ��� worst  children tliat ovor lived because thoy  liked to rido down hill better than  to read "Pilgrim's Progress." They  never heard thcir parents talk of religion but with the comers of the  jnouth drawn down and the eyes  roiled up. Others went into skepticism through maltreatment on the  part of somo-who,professed religion.  There is a man who says.  "My nart-  ner in business was conspicuous in  prayer meeting, and he was ollicious  in all religious circles, but he cheated me out of fcfl.OOO, and I don't  want any of lhat religion." Then  there aro others who got into skepticism b.v a natural persistence in asking questions, why or how ? How  fun tluil be one being in three persons ?

Othor persons apologise for not entering the Clnislian Hie becuuse of  Ihe incorrigibility of their temperament. Now. we admit it is harder  for somo people to become Christians  than for others, but the grace of  Cod never came to a mountain that  it could not climb or to an abyss  that il could not fathom or to a  bondage that il could not break.  The wildett, horse that ever trod  Arabian sands has been broken lo  bit and tiace. The maddest torrent tumbling from mountain shelving has been harnessed to tho mill  wheel and the factory band, sotting  a thousand shuttles' all a-btuz and  a-clatler. And the wildest, the  haughtiest, tho most ungovernable  man oier created by the grace of  Cod may be subdued and sent, out on  ministry of kindness, ius God sends  an August thundersto"ni to nater  the wild llowers down in thc grus*.  I'eter, with natuie tempestuous as  the sea thai ho once tried to walk,  al one look from Ch:ist went out  and wept bitterly. Rich harvests of  grace may grow on tho summit of  the jaggod steep, and Hocks of Christian graces may find pasturage in  fields of bramble and rock. Con-  veiling giaco has lilted the drunkard  from the ditch and snatched tho  knife from tho hand of the assassin  and the false kevs from the buiglar  and in the pestiferous lanes of iho  cily met tho dai'ghtor of sin under  the din lamplight and scattered her  sorrow and her guilt, with the words.  "Thy sins nre foi given: go. and sm  no more." For scarlet sin a scar-  lot atonement.  Other persons apologize for not entering the Clnislian lifo uojause of  thc inconsistencies of those who profess religion. There are thousands  of poor farmers. They do not know  the nature of soils or tho proper rotation ot crops. Their corn is shorter in the stalk and smaller in tho  ear. They have icu 1j~s bushels to  the acre than their neighbors. But  who declines being a farmer because  there arc so many poor farmci s"?  There aro thousands of incompetent  merchants.      They  buy at the wrong  .tune, They_ get__i,.hi'atc_d_iii_tlio_sale  of their goods. Eveiy bale of goods  is to them a bale of disaster. They  fail after awhile and go out of business. Iiut wlio declines lo be a merchant because there are so many incompetent merchants "> There are  thousands of poor lawyois. They  cannot draw a declaration that will  stand the test. Thoy cannot recover  just damages. They cannot help a  defendant oscvpc from tho (injustice of  his persecutors. They are the worst.  Impediments against any case in  which they are retained. Dnt who  declines to bo a lawyer beciuiHC there  arc so many incompetent htwyeis?  Yet there"ure tons of thousands of  people who decline being religious because thero are so many unworthy  Christians. Now, I say it is illogical. Poor lawyers are nothing  against jurisprudence; poor physicians are nothing against medicine ;  poor fanners are nothing agninst agriculture, and moan, contemptible  professors of religion are nothing  against  our glorious  Christianity.  Sickness will como, and wc will bo  pushed out townrd thu lied .Sin  whicli divides this world fiom the  next, and not the inconsistency of  Chiisliuns but the rod of faith will  wave back the waters as a commander wheels his host. Tho judgment  will como, with its thunder shod  solemnities. Oh, I hen wo will not  stop and say,' "There wns a - mean  Christian; there was a cowardly  Christian;     thor��     was     an impure  Christian." In that day as now, "If  thou bo wise, thou shalt be wise for  .thyself, but if thou scornest thou  alone shall bear it." Why, my brother, the inconsistency of Christians,  so fur from being an argument to  keep you away from Cod, ought lo  no un argument to drive you to him.

In fact, exercise is almost necessary to cleanliness, for it Is n great  incentive to perspiration, which Is nature's way of throwing tbe impurities  of the body to tbe surface of the skin,  from whence they nre then removed  by the use of water. Open air exercise  should be taken every day, but according to strength. ��� Ono should return  home' nfter walking, riding or cycling  witb a sense, of being plensantly fatigued, but without any feeling of exhaustion. Exercise sbould be taken  regularly, and, if possible, dumbbells  should be used night and morning. The  corset sliould not bo worn while exercising with dumbbells. Skipping is an  excellent exorcise for the figuie, nnd it  is oue of which our grandmothers wero  fond. It Is usual with children to  throw tbe rope forwnrd when skipping,  but it ls far better to throw It backward, for it expands tbe chest much  better.  ^-^_���������������^��� i  Stair Walking.  Walking up and down stairs can be  mnde an excellent exercise for developing the muscles of the log from tbe  hip down nnd giving a good poise to  the body if performed In the correct  and cosiest way. As usunlly done,  with thc body thrown forwnrd at the  bips. the heel of tbe foot constantly  striking, the poise of the body is lost  and a great strain is put on the back,  tending to increase the nervousness.  If the body Is carried well poised, upright from thc hips, the ball of the foot  striking tbe stair first, the knees being  flexible, both in ascending and descending, all the good effects are obtained,  a?____J___inue__L_stnlr_!climbing _is _dono  "there will be n grout difference in the  feeling of vitality. Ascending stairs  rapidly by spring from the bull of one  foot to the other forms an excellent  means of strengthening tbe ankles  and curing a tendency to fiat feet.  A Laundry Hint.  For strong materials which hnve become mildewed or otherwise stained a  piece of lye the size of a walnut dissolved ln a bucket of cold wnter makes  a solution In which thc article may be  soaked over night. It should then be  washed with n good white soup nnd  boiled, lastly being run through weak  blue wnter. This gives a peculiarly  fresh and dainty whiteness. Tho objection thnt the lye will rot the material Is not sustained save In very delicate materials. A pique or duck will  Inst several such soak lugs with no HI  effects whutevcr.  ���MAKIKO THE SHADOW.  near a wall that bus a half length mirror hanging on it. Tbe person that  holds the light hns to innko sure, by  varying its distance or Its height, that  the reflection of Ibe cuudlo in tbo glass  falls on the place on the wall that  servos as a screen for tbo shadow of  your head. According to tho form of  the mirror, this reflection will show aa  a luminous oval or a parallelogram  beside the outlines of your shadow.  But if you have covered tbe inirror  with a sheet of thick paper in which,  as may be scon in tbe accompanying  illustration, you havo cut the likeness  of two eyes, a nose and a mouth, na  grotesque as you mny like, the luminous rays that traverse these slits will  be tho only ones reflected, nnd thoy,  will appear upon thc wall ns belonging to the shadow of your bead.  To make the apparition more effective superimpose upon tbe glass two  sheets of paper equally designed and  furnished with feattires, one of tbcm  being fixed nnd the other movable.  Sway the hitter to and' t'ro with your  hnnd and you will produce in the shadow a pair of goggling eyes and a snapping mouth, enough to startle the most  Impassive spectator.

He llrst became prominent In the Brotherhood''of Locomotive  Firemen- Early in the nineties be conceived tbe idea of welding all the railroad employees In,to one organisation.  This'thought gave birth to the American Railroad Union, which . after a  number of minor successes, wont to  pieces as a result of the great Pullman  strike. On its ruin Debs helped to organise the socialist democratic party  of the United States. This organisation  consolidated recently with that faction  of the socialist labor party, working in  harmony with existing trade unions.  Deb.3 was their ������ first candidate for  president of the United States, polling  about one hundred thousand votes. Iii  politics he has been llrst a democrat,  then a populist and now a socialist. He  is extremely popular, and through his  sterling personal qualities enjoys the  esteem of; many public men who have  no sympathy with his radical ideas. He  is a finished and powerful orator, and  those who enjoy an intellectual treat  should not miss hearing this great man.

"We have debased the idea of leadership,''"said Professor Adler, "with the  uso of. that, term 'public servant.' The  coming labor leader niust be one born  to rule. He anust be ai .mum or high  pi-rposes and possessing great executive ability. Such a man Is not satisfied to be a 'public servant.'

The King left Lftridon on' the 2Sth  Feb. for Burton to pay a visit ��� to  Lord llurlon.      His Majesty, traveled  . by special truin from Huston, the  Hoyal -train stopping ut ihe littlo  station of ll.-trion and Wnlton, four  miles     from  Burton-on-Trcnt.      Tlio  ' King was received by Lord Ilurtoti  nnd lib) son-in-laiv, air. Huillie 'of  Dochi'our, anil prominent olliciuls,of  the Midland Railway. After chat-  ling for a few minutes with his  host His .Majesty and thc other  guests drove to Hangetnoio. Barton  village is on a line oft route  to llnngemore, and the ancient place wus lavishly decorated, triumphal wclics 'spanning  the road at .frequent intervals, and  bunting and banners finding a lodgment in all'sorts of places. That  the effect of all this might not be  lost on the Hoytil procession  through the darkness fairy liiihls  and torches were introduced ihere  and there and the whole produced a  brilliant spectacle. There was another big crowd at I'aiigemore, and  the King received a most enthusiastic reception from the<.villagers  and thc visitors, who had ��� ..thronged  into the place from all parts.  Among the guests invited, to moot  His Majesty during his visit to  Lord and Lady. Din-ton at Kange-  more were the' Duke aud Duchess of  Devonshire, the Portuguese -"Minister,  Lady Sarah. Wilson, Lord and Lady  Farcjuhar, and Earl Ho wo..  His Majesty  was astir early      on  .  LDIU)   liUKTON'.  Saturday morning, March 1, ',. but  even.earlier than ho were crowds of  sightseers who. thronged into Burton, from the neighboring towns of  Birmingham, Derby, Lichfield, etc.  They had not'long to wait, for thc  King, accompanied by the other  guests, started at 11 o'clock, in  six carriages, for Burton, to inspect Messrs. Bass and Go's, brew-  cries. Tho Royal party entered the  borough at Shobnall boundary, by  way of Forest-roivd, and near tho  triumphal arch they were greeted by  2,000 school children'of the town,  accommodated upon." a special platform. His Majesty was evidently  very much pleased by their singing  of the National Anthem. V, Further  along the Shobnnll-road a hnlt was  mado at the meltings of Bass and  Co., the most extensive in the world.  The vfsit was necessarily brief, and  ;-, was confined to the inspection of  one "of the malt houses and a  casual view of the <. huge, railway  sidings. Proceeding, the party passed St. Paul's Church, which was  erected  by     Lord  Burton's .'.'��� father,  'and at the town hivll were most royally received by the Mayor nnd  members of the Corporation, various  public officials, and leading townspeople, who' were accommodated on  a speeially-erecto'd platform. . All  along thc route the streets were  lined by thousands',of-;spectators,  who wore most demonstrative in  their reception of'His. -Majesty. Attired in a dark blue overcoat nnd  bowler hat, with' - a-cambllia in his  buttonhole,, His Majesty repeatedly  bowed'' his' '.acknowledgments, frequently ".raising- liis Jiat and smiling  on everybody.   . *  The most important part of the program was carried out at the new  brewery, which was reached about  noon. Stepping briskly from his  carriage the Ki"ng was Conducted by  Lond Burton through .V a narrow  door into' the realms .of vats, tubs,  casks, nnd barrels. The party proceeded up two flights of ladder  steps���very 'different to-,the broad  staircases of I'nngemorc��� to a long  room in which stand the great  mashing tubs. It was explained to  His Majesty that above:each tub  Was a huge    store of prepared malt,  " "and_that_all_that- was- required���to  release this malt into the warm  water below was the pulling of a  steel lever. With a smile the Kinc  advanced       to the    first tub ��� and  ��� drew the lever towards him ��� a  sploshing within tlie tub proclaimed  the fact that tho nuvlt had zone  down, nnd thnt tho brewing of the  King's nie had commint'cd.  Almost simultaneously browing was  started'ini four other tubs. ' Altogether 400 barrels of King's nlo will  bo browed; stronger than nny other  ' ale brewed by: Hnss.' A move was  now made by the l'loynl party to the'  Iloor above, nnd Ills Majesty peered  into the grent round cavity from  which he had  Just released tho malt.  ��� Kkohi tho malt chamber the party  passed into a-larger and airier room,  where unground malt was piled ^..in  thousandsfof sacks. The processes  of    malt ' cleaning    and the adding  ' of the bops to the malt wort in the  big boilers were then explained in  InV scrips'of .��lfmly-I!glited rooms  devoted    to each operation.  His Majesty followed each- explanation with' amuse'd interest, tyi'd after a visit hnd been paid to tho  .cask room, _w,hero ��20,000 ��� worth  of ��� pale a.c ls fined at a time,-  the King was conducted to a lofty  IialT,' on; each side, of which stood  five immense chocolate-colored vats  of porter. In .tho centre of the  room w-as a table covered with  green baize,, and on the green baize  were a score of tastimr glasses fillod  with tne various ales ana beers  brewed by Bass &��� Co. The more  tempting of these His Majesty sipped, and he then signed his name in  a visitors' book that was among  tho glasses.' In a little alcove between two of the Vats was a da-in-  ty little retiring room fitted up specially for the occasion. The.Hoyal  party now. emerged once more into  the open nil- and left the King's ale  to undergo all the experience tho  King has just witnessed.  A move was next made to the mid-  dlo brewery, and His Majesty was  afforded nn opportunity of vfewing  the largest hop stores and cellars in the world. Passing the engineers' oll''cs amd fire brigade station, Uu- party crossed timid street  and entered the middle yui'd, where  an interesting quarter of an hour  was siient in an inspection of the  steam cooperage, whi.h is'the most  complete nf its kind extnnt. After u visit to ihe branding shod,  the King and his suite rc-entcrcd the  carriages and emerged into High  street.  liis Majesty returned to Rnngemoro  about    two o'clock.  The King and the Ilangemorc party spent a very .quiet day on Sunday. In the morning His Majesty attended divine service tvt  liaiigeinore Church, ami to suit  the,i King's convenience this Was arranged for half-pnsl 11 instead of  the usual hour. Thousands of  peoplo walked ninny miles in the  .hope of obtaining it glimpse of  the Sovereign, and gathered outside  the hall gates and in tlie vicinity  of thu picturesque little church'.uhei'o  there was u general baring or heads,  but. owing to the day. the multitude refrained from cheering. The  Duchess of Devonshire, accompanied  by Lady Burton, was the first to  arrive at the church.- When" the  King reached the sacred edifice ho  was escorted by Lord Burton to his  seat in the pew next the pulpit.  There wero, no decorations- whatever. His Majesty sitting on the  plain ���'' oaken seat. The service,  wliich was exactly thc same as on  ordinary occasions, was conducted  by the vicar, tlie Hev. A. Lowe, assisted b.v the Rev. T. C. Kcble,  vicar of   Dunslnll.  On Monday King Edward left  Iliingcinorc uikI drove to Burton-  on-Trent, where he tools train for  London.  MRS. A.

Great, triumphs for liis Majesty as an owner  only fullowed after small beginnings.  80 casual and unambitious indeed  were his early essays tliat ho luny  almost be said to have drifted involuntarily into ownership on a  large scale. His, Majesty's llrst race  of any description was a modest effort at securing the regimental trophy of the Tenth (Prince of Wales'  Own Hoyal) Hussars, a challenge cup  run for at their steeplechase meeting near Hayes, in the Windsor district/on March 81, 1871. ���  In the aforementioned Challenge  Cup in whicli His Majesty first displayed his colors they were worn by  Captain Bulkeley on a hunter called  Champion. Seductive name this,  ringing true,and confident, but alas!  the nag's 'performance- did not assort with it. He fell, which was nn  ignominious thing for a champion to  do.

The following article is fromVthe  pen of Mr. H. G. Clark, IJ S.A.,  Chief.of the Seed Division Department of  Agiicuiture.  Ii the .farmers of Canada were acquainted with the sources of supply of their root crop seeds, and  tho avenues, through which they  pass :,'before' reiuhing tliem, they  would be a great dial moro particular when making their purchases.  Practically all the seedy for "our  root crops is grown Iri foreign countries. "However important it may  be that the seed for such crops bo  grown in tho countiy where it is  wanted for sowing, the cheap labor  in those European couiitri.'s, which  have become tlie seed gardens of, tlio.  world, has made tho seed growing  industry unprofitable to Canadian,  farmers or seed specialists.  Our supply of foreign grown seeds  is bought and imported principally  by our larger seed firms. '1 hey may  make their purchases either by paying  a'comniensurale price to reliable Uu-  lopcaii seed growers, men who grow  seed from selected pedigreed stock',  or, thoy may buy seed at a much  lower price���seed that is grown by  men whose chief aim has bcen_ to  produce a largo'-quantity,-;: ���-.independently of the quality, of tho  crop it will produce. Iiitho former case the seed is grown from ' selected plants���from roots ' which  havo nn ideal size and form,  and are known    to be true  toname.  For instance, an,ideal turnip is  ono having a small iieck', and top  growth.'.-, Such a robt when planted , will produce a comparatively  small growth of sl.allts, and consequently'a" small amount of seed,  but the seed fiom such a i;oot is  apt to.produce a crop,like the  mother root which was planted. On  tho other hand iv small turnip having several root; prongs, and an  j excessive growth of lop coming from  two or tliree separate neck growths,  will transmit its like through tho  seed to the next crop. ,. Seed can  be grown from such roots much more  cheaply than from' selected roots,  because, in the first place the moth-  ' er roots are culls, and are not as  ! valuable for feeding, and consequently, they will produce a much larger  quantity of seed.  During the'Inst ten or-fifteen yctu-s  the seed trade has,: to a great extent, been passing from the hands  of seedsmen wh0 devote all their  time to a study of seeds and the  seed trade, into the hands of local  dealers. Unfortunately, fair competition in thc seed trade, i.s practically impossible, since the appearance of most commercial seeds' . is  but a slight indication of their  real value. ���The competition has  been, and is too largely '.'confined to  prices alone. ".Farmers continuo  to patronize the local dealer who  is able to quote a low prico for  his goods. The local dealer demands a low priced seed of the  wholesale ...firms, and in -turn thero  has been a growing strife among  wholesale seed firms in thc buying of cheap goods, with which to  supply local dealers.  It is well to mention, however,  that through the progressive spirit  of some reliable seed houses a limited trade of the best stocks of root  crops seeds has been fostered, and  there is littic dilliculty experienced  among intelligent farmers, in' getting the best quality of seeds  provided they go tho- right ^vay  about it, and willing ,to pay a commensurate price. But much of the  root crop seeds soid in Canada arc retailed to tho farmer at a price quite as low as  our Canadian seed houses hmvo  to pay reputed European seed  growers for the best seed from  selected     pedigreed stock.  Appeals have been made, both by  seedsmen and farmers, to placo sucb  restrictions on the seed trude as  will, serve to withdraw the responsibility ' connected" therewith,  from tho' hands of incompetent lo-'  cal dealers. With, root crop seeds,  this aim may be reached by allowing only reliablo seed houses  or seed importers the right to placo  such goods on the market; by al-"  lowing tliem to place goods in  sealed packages, each Package to  be properly , labelled, and to bear  the name and consequently tho  reputation of tho seed house; ia  the hands: of- local dealers'to be sold  on commission only. Official Interference int he seed trude may.  have 'objectionable features. Perhaps ��� the most striking example  of where legislation has been applied to improve the conditions under which, i commercial, seeds _ are  "sold" . is in " the State of Maine,  wliere ivll seeds sold must ���' be accompanied with a, statement,  showing thoVperc'ciitnge ���: of pure  and vital 'seeds. They have extended to their seed trade a modification' of the act which' is used  in Canada to regulate" the quantity of commercial fertilizers, and  the results' < have clearly demonstrated tliat, whatever evils may  accompany an enforced gunrantco  system - ��� in connection with' tho  seed trade, it is an effective way  to improve Hie quality of commercial scods, especially of clovor  and grasses, of which a great deal  Is sold in somo districts in Canada, thnt . contnlns largo quantities of noxious weed seeds nnd  is a decided Injury not only to  the farmer who buys it, but'to'tlio  locality where It is grown.

"The  masters," he says, "could not 11ml employment for fifty extra- men; but the  main point is the combined effort of the  employers to Hood   the   labor .market  that it will enable them to offer what  terms they choose."     "The .employers  of this colony went crying to the premier of this colony on the same matter, when they knew quite .well that at  the time they could not find employment for an extra 20 men in the whole  town."     "It is," he adds, "not fair to  the men they bring out; it is a most  cruel return given by the artisans of  this country during the war. *   *   *   It  ls a preconcerted attempt to llood the  labor market, so that the laborer may  be brought down on his knees to beg  to be allowed to earn his own bread."
