to osBiimo that they nro behind tho Pan

promise for tho most delay. It Is slg
nlflcant that tho offer of tho Panama

It seemed certain that tho Nlcaraguan
route would bo adopted by the lower
houso of congress. Having considered
thflt points In favor of the Panama
route, the cnnnl commission, that re
cently mado Its report, approved tho
Nlcaraguan route. It seems that those
who have been most earnest In advo
cating tho construction ol a canal are
practically unanimous In favor of the
Nlcaraguan route, while the present
advocates of the Panama canal arc
largely made up of those who have
been opposed to any canal at all. It Is
to bo hoped that the Nlcaraguan bill
will be pushed through tho senate at
an early day. The American peoplo are
very generally In favor of an isthmian
canal nnd the Nlcaraguan plan offers
the best method of a prompt realiza
tion of a very popular plan.

Something for Farmer to Fonder.
Prince Henry Is coming, but the
rclchstng goes on with its plans to
pay us off In our own tariff coin. Its
tariff committee accepted the clause
off the new bill providing that, in the
absence of treaty stipulations, tho
samo rates of duty shall bo applied to
foreign goods as are enforced In the
country of thoir origin against "similar
German goods." Do our western farm
ers know what this means? It means

Nothing Is plainer than that the Re

equal rights, nor as to the possibility
of one man's governing another with
out his consent. But those who now
proclaim these truths are sneered at

A Pointer for Cuba.
If Cuba Is wise she will cease her

a prohibitive tariff law and tax herself

Moasrs. J. E. Blum and J. Crumpet
of Manchester, Washtenaw County,
Michigan, paid a visit to Alberta last
summer nnd saw thero a Mr. Shuntz,
ono of the good old Pennsylvania
stock, who had como recently some
seven years ago from Ontario with
$24 in his pocket, He has certainly
prospered, as he now hits over seventy
head of cuttlo, has a good loghnuse
framed over; also a good barn, and In
all respects looks a thrifty and well-to-do
farmer. Ho had como good
cropB of oats and barley. After npend
ing some days in Calgary and Ed
monton thoy returned to Reglna, As
slnlbola, and looked around the coun
try north to Lumsden and Balgonle,
where the crops appeared very prom
ising and heavy; continuing up the
Reglna and Long Lake road they came
to Saskatoon on tho crossing of the
South Saskatchewan River. Of thla
district they eny:
"The country here plcnsed us better
than any wo have Been. We drove out
eighteen miles in a northwesterly di
rection through the Smith settlement.
This Is a wonderful district; the
growth was splendid; all kinds of
grains nnd roots were perfection. The
older settlers had good buildings of
all kinds and looked very prosperous;
in fact, we came to the conclusion that
wo had found what we were looking
for, a good country. While the nature
of tho soil changes' and Is In some
parts light, In others stony, and again
heavy, generally speaking It leaves
nothing to be desired. Hay and.wator
nro also In abundance and wood can
bo found along tho river slopes and
Islands. We have decided to locate
thero and Bhall certainly advise our
friends to do likewise. We also trust
that this report may havo tho effect of
drawing the attention of land seekers
to this district, and can honestly ad
vise all such to locate there. They
will find a good thing. As farmers
ourselves, from a good district in
Michigan, we have come to the con
clusion that, properly farmed, western
Canada will grow almost anything."
