16EO J KELLY
RAC FROM
CANADA
What are the prospects of the
homeseekcrs In Western Canada
This Is a question asked by many
Ogden people and there havo been
I tow definite answers given to It
The land agent pictures It as the
I Last Great West or the Empire
of the North Ho pictures In glow
ing words its opportunities as a
wheat flowing country George J
Kelly a wellknown Ogden man has
just returned from Northwestern
Canada and has much to say con
cerning the land and the hopes and
fears of Its people
Mr Kelly tells of the countrys ad
vantages without omitting the dis
advantages
Saskatchewan and Alberta the
lands of promise have a combined
mon larger than the combined area
of Ohio Indiana Michigan Ken
tucky Illinois Wisconsin Minne
sota Iowa and Missouri As only
about ten million acres of this land
U now under cultivation the country
is practically untouched For the
most part this country has black clay
soil not unlike the socalled oot
tom lands of the Middle Western
states This is the wheat oats flax
and barley land No one has tried to
grow com on the land as tho sea
sons arc loo short for it to mature
Within the prairie grain lands are
tracts of more rolling land describ
ed as grazing land There seems to
bo plenty of water although there is
a scarcity of timber only scattered
poplar and willow breaking tho hor
izon of the prairie Hero are the
possibilities of success and here also
lurk the possibilities of barren C l
ure which must be taken Into ac
count by Ogden people who are con
templating a homestead In the new
land
Some of the optimistic settlers of
the country cling to the straw of pre
cedent and say that because the
early frost has never yet caught their
crops It never will It Is the early
frost that Is the great peril of the
country The growing season Is so
short that there Is always two weeks
of anxiety to the settler For two
weeks his homo Is haunted by the
white spectro of frost and he goes
to bed with this fear hovering over
his pillow The farmers always havo
succeeded in harvesting their fields
lefore they were cut down by boreas
but there was no farming until five
or six years ago so that the prece
dent Is not yet a very certain one
And then the frost has always come as
a gleaner Just after the grain was
cafe It is this close race between
man and nature + that has deterred
nuny prospective settlers from taking
up claims In this country
PLASTERERS MAY
GO CN STRIKE
SALT LAKE July 24The strike
of the plasterers at the Lillard build
Ing on Fourth South and Main streets
which was caused hy tho refusal of
master plasterers to agree to employ
I none but union men has now spread
over the entire city Yesterday 12
I contractors representing twentyfour
big jobs and a score of smaller jobs
were notified that tho plasterers
would not return to work unless the
demands of the union were granted
The nonunion men employed at
these Jobs wore designated as plaster
ers helpers and were receiving from
250 to 450 per day The demand
of the union was that all men wheth
er hod carriers mixers or wheelers
should recelvo 150 per day and all
carry union cards
Frank Doran plaster contractor for
the Lillard building last night said
001 think It Is one of tho most seri
ous strikes we have had here It is
not serious from the plasterers stand
point alone but from tho fact that
present Indications are that the strike
will spread to all of the affiliated
unions in the Building Trades coun
cil This strike affects only about
seventy men In the city and twelve
contractors
The contractors hold a meeting
yesterday to devise rays and means
for controlling the conditions add
ed Mr Doran Just what plan was
devised 1 cannot give out but you
can say that tho plastering job on
the Lillard building is going to be fin
ished and finished without much d3
lay As yet than strikers have ap
pointed no time to meet tho contrac
tors and we have appointed no limo
to meet them The work will go on
however and If the men who carry
union cards do not care to complete
the work some one else will The
contractors are not going to be
bossed by the Building Trades coun
cil They gave us no alternative It
was simply a case where we had to
do as they told us to or fall out with
them

CROP OAMAGf IN
ISOLATED SPOTS
ST PAUL Minn July 10mclal
reports from the grain producing sec
tions ot the northwest do not Indicate
that the entire wheat crop was suf
fered the damnge previously report
ed In Isolated districts some of
which aro of considerable size tho
crop has already suffered such lam
a e as to reduce tho probable yield
to 10 pur cent of last years crop
Over the northwest generally there Is
admitted damage but the careful in
spection trips of two railway general
managers and a score of wheat ex
ports during the past ten days Indi
cate that to predict half a crop is to
credit all tho damage reports which
have come In The experts are In
clined to believe that while farmers
in some sections have suffered a to
tal loss tho total wheat production
of the northwest this year will show
a fair crop while many large sec
tions will show a fair to good crop
A large crop Is not expected because
of the heat of tho last three weeks
Reports have como in from a few dis
tricts showing that wheat loss than a
foot In height is heading out
Weather conditions havo Improved
and a cooler July in the opinion ot
experts who have Just come In from
the wheat districts will make im
mense ogress towards reducing the
damage Continued hot weather will
on the other hand largely Increase
tho loss Rain has fallen In many
sections and over the entire north
west there has been a noticeable Im
provement
St Puul jobbing houses report that
the business of the past six months
has been tho best in their history
which Is regarded as a sufficient In
dication that the damage reports
have overestimated actual conditions
Cancellations of orders arc not
above normal for this season ot the
year although there have been a
number of cases In which country
merchants have requested temporary
suspension of their orders to ascer
tain the probable damage and effect
I on their local business The tone
of the wholesale business In all lines
a groat part of which is with the
wheatproducing regions Is healthy I
and optimistic with no serious signs
so far that a slump Is tobc antici
pated I
Local business conditions In SL
Paul are typical of the leading Min
nesota cities nearly all of which
would he delt a staggering blow by
the failure of the grain crop Busi
ness Is good In all lines Retail sales
are picking up Bank clearings are
51090000 in advance of the corres
ponding six months last year and
June real estate transfers showed an
increase of 1250000 while trans
fers for the six months of the year I
just closed were 2000000 heavier
than a year ago I
Local merchandise business In the
smaller towns is in a healthy condi I
tion and merchants arc not appre
hensive
The northwestern hay crop is ad
mittedly short but the loss Is com
pensated by tho healthy condition of I
several other important crops I
