Vortant to the farmer as to a railroad
onipany, or to u urrjit steel corpora
tion. The farmer must endeavor to secure
an equal footing in the competition
for a lower cost of production. In
"Western Canada the farmer has come
through the dark era with that forti
tude and determination so peculiar t
a new country, and is meeting tie
changed situation witn energy and a
Mnile. In Western Canada the farmer j
Is not hamiered by an annual over- ;
head expense of heavy interest on j
high-priced land. lie is able to pro- j
dure at n minimum, because hi.C land
value seldom exceeds $.V) an acre.
Owing to the fact that he Is farming

to $r0 an acre, producing crop! of
wheat running from 20 to AO bushels
per acre, and other grains in propor
tion, lie is able to produce at a low
cost. In addition to this, a fact which
should not be lost sight of. is the large
area that he can farm at low cost, giv
ing him an added advantage in reduc
ing the cost of production.
The corn that the fairmer fully ex
pected to hring him over a dollar a
bushel, he saw carried away to the
market, and bring hack a "0 or 40 cent
check. Wheat for the whole of Can
ada averaged Mi cents a bushel in 11 1
as compared with Sl.lVJ in P.VJ0; oats
:i7 cents as against Ö" cents; barley
-17 cents as against SC cents. Other
grain prices similarly fell. While
other parts of the continent, where
grain-growing is carried on. have suf
fered in like maimer hy deflation in
prices, they have had to face a much !
higher cost in production, such as high j
rents, hlgh-prhvd farms, and high !
taxes. Farmers had calculated on re
ceiving war or nearly war tigures for
their grain and therefore were amply j
Justified in submitting to the tax that ,
soaring land prices set upon them. '
Western Canada fortunately did not
suffer from inflated land prices. There
fore, when grain prices fell, the losses
sustained were not so great ; they did
not cut out the margin of profit, ex
cepting in some cases where some cli
matic conditions caused it.
