THE HOPE OF THE CONTINENT.
Western Canada the "Bread Basket
of the Empire. "
The atteutiou directed to the wheat
fields of Western Canada during the
past year has caused thousands of setj
tie's from differeut parts of the United
States to make their homes there during
the past few months. They'report that
their experience corroborates what had
been told them of that wonderful coun
try , and they are sending back to their
friends most favorable reports. During
the past summer a number of Wiscon
sin and Michigan and Minnesota editors
visited Western Canada , and the follow
ing extracts are from a very flattering
letter written by the Germania of Mil
waukee by its able contributor , Prof.
"The numerous elevators along the
line , towering so far above the sur
rounding country that they may be seen
for many miles distant , sufficiently in
dicate that the chief industry is the
growing of wheat. At the village of
Indian Head more than a million bush
els of wheat was marketed last year.
This was but a fraction of the amount
of the same product marketed at the
larger cities of Brandon and Regina.
At Indian Head the representative of
the Germania was told by a farmer that
he was about to harvest his thi/d crop
of wheat from the farm upon one
plowing given it the fall of 1S93 ; the
crops of the current year and of last
year having been sown upon the stubble
of the preceding crop. This farmer ex
pected a yield of not less than forty
bushels to the acre. The farms are very
largo. The absence of hills and rocks
contributes to making farming on a
large scale an easy matter. There was
an abundance of evidence that the coun
try surrounding the cities named above
is an extensive region of fertile lands
furnishing as great an opportunity for
cattle raising and dairying as for the
growing of wheat. "
"We were surprised to find here a
rich growth of nearly every species of
cultivable plant known in AVisconsiu.
Various species of trees were growing
showing that its soil and its climate are
favorable to the growth of forests. The
writer had never seen a more promising
growth of wheat , oats and garden vege
tables than was observed here. The
Experimental Farm of Wisconsin , lo
cated at Madison , produces nothing bet
"The people along the line of the rail
road , however , assured us that we were
still far distant from the northern limit
of the wheat-growing belt , and that five
hundred miles farther north wheat and
other agricultural products were culti
vated with success. The inhabitants
do not depend solely upon the growing
of wheat , but utilize vast acres in rais
ing cattle. The growing grain and veg
etables showed that a plentiful supply
of rain had fallen during the current
"From this city ( Calgary ) our party
was taken north 200 miles to Edmon
ton , a town of 5,000 people , situated on
the north Saskatchewan river. The
country at this point is beautiful , pre
senting very much the appearance of
many sections in central and southern
Wisconsin. The people are engaged in
mining for gold , and in raising wheat ,
potatoes and cattle. Dairying is also
followed. This valley seems to be fav
ored with sufficient rain fall to produce
a luxuriant growth of grain and vege
tables. The soil is very fertile and tim
ber is abundant. Fields of wheat were
observed that promise a yield of forty
bushels per acre. The many good
farm houses seen from the railway are
evidence of the prosperity of the set
tlers. Edmonton is the terminus of the
L-oad and the place where the overland
expeditions start from for the Yukon ,

Largest Silver Mine.
The biggest silver producer in the
world at present is the Broken tlill
Proprietary Company in New South
Wales. The output of that company's
mines for the fiscal year ending on May
31 , 1S9S , was 6,122,270 flne ounces of
silver. The Anaconda Copper Mining
Company in Montana came second ,
with a production of 5,074,030 ounces
of silver. It is worth noting that in
both of these mines the silver is pro
duced in connection with other metals
at Broken Hill with leiul and at Ana
conda with copper. The latter is prin
cipally a copper mine , since thr metal
forms the greater part of rht valut ? of
| its ores.
i The Coinpania Huanchaca do Bolivia
has had the operation of its mines se
riously interfered with for the last two
years by water and other mishaps. Its
production in 1S97 was 151,095 kilo
grams , or 4.SSG.G73 ounces , of silver.
This is not much more than one-half of
the maximum output which was reach
