COUNTRY WHOSE SOIL SPELLS WHEAT AND OUT OF WHOSE FARMS THOUSANDS ARE GROWING RICH. WHAT PRESIDENT TAFT AND OTHERS THINK OF CANADA. Another Fat Year for the Canadian West. Our Canadian neighbor! to tin-north nre again rejoicing over an abundant harvest, and reports from reliable aOUrcei go to show that the total yield of 1MB will be far above that of any other year. It Is estimated that 1100,000,000 will this year go Into the pockets oi the Western farmers from wheat alone, another 100,000,000 from oats and barley, while returns from other crops and from stock will add f4D, 000,000 more. Is It any wonder then that the farmers of the Canadian West are happy? Thousands of American farmers have settled in the above mentioned provinces during the past year; men who know the West and Its possibili ties, and who also know perhaps bet ter thnn nny other people, the beat method! for profitable farming Pro. blent Taft said recently in gpeaklng of Canada: "We have been gnlng ahead so rap idly in our own country that our heads have been lOmeWhll swelled Willi Ihe Idea thai v. e are carrying on our shoul ders all ih.- progress there Is In the world We have not I n conscious that then is on the north a young country and a young nation that ia looking torward, as It wall may. to a great national future. They have 7,000,000 people, but the country Is still hardly scratched" .las. .1 Hill speaking before tlm Canadian Club of Winnipeg a few days ago said "I go back for !in years, when I came Weil from Canada Al that time Canada had no North West. A young boy or man who desired to carve his own way had to cross tin- line, and today It may lurpriM you one out Of every five Children born In Canada lives In the I'nlted Slates Now you tire playing the return match, and the North West is getting people from the I'nlted States very rapidly. We brought inn land-seekers, mainly from Iowa and Southern .Minnesota, last night out of St. Paul, going lo Ibe North West Now, these people have nil tlm way from five, ten lo twenty thousand dollars Mch, and they will make as much progress on ihe land in 01m year as any one man COtn'Og from the Continent of Europe can make, do ing the best he can. In ten, fifteen, or twenty years " It Is evident, from the Welcome Clvn American settlers In Canada that the Canadian people appreciate timm. Writing from Southern Alberta recently an American farmer suys: ' We are giving them some new Ideas about being good farmers, and they are giving us some new Ideas aboul being good citizens. They have a law against taking liipior Into the : Indian Iteservatlon. One of our fel lowi was caught on a reservation with , a bottle on him, and it (est him BB0, I One of the Canadian Mounted Police j found him, and let me tell you, tbey , Hud everyone who tries to go up against the laws of the country. "On Saturday night, every bar-room ll closed, at exactly 7 o'clock. Why? BecBUM It is the law. and its the ' snme with every other law. Thero Isn't a bad man In the Whole district, and a woman can come home from town to the farm at midnight If she wants to, alone That's Canada's Idea how to run a frontier; they have cer tainly taught us a lot. "On the other hand, we arc running their farms for them better than any oilier class of larumrs I guess 1 can lay this without boasting, and the Caandluns appreciate us We turn out to celebrate Dominion Day; they are glad to have us help to farm Ihe country; they know how to govern; we know how to work " Another fanner, from Mlnnosotn, who settled In Central Saskatchewan Boine years ago. has the following to aay about the country: "My wife nnd I have done well enough since we came from the States; we can live anyway. We came In the spring of 1901 with Hie lirst carload of settlers' effects unloaded In these parts and built the first shanty between Sas katoon nnd Lumaden. We brought with our enr of settlers' effects the sum ol $1800 in cash, to-day we are worth $40,000. We 'proved up' one of the finest farms in Western Canada and bought lillO acres at $3 per acre. Wl took good crops off the land for four years, at the end of which we had j.snuii worth of Improvement! in the way of buildings, etc, and had planted three acreB of trees. Two years ago we got such a good offer that we sold our land at $45 per acre ,vom the shove Vol will see that WO hnvo not done badly since our ar rival." Prof. Thomas Shaw of St. Paul, Min nesota, with a number of other well known aditora of American farm Jour nals, toured Western Canada recently, nnd In an interview at Winnipeg said In part : "With regard to the settlement of the Went I should any tbat it la only Well begun. I have estimated that In Manitoba one-tenth of ttie land has been broken. In Saskatchewan one thirtieth and In Alberta, one hundred and seven ty-fl ft h. I nm satisfied that In all three provinces grain can he grown successfully up '0 'he sixtieth parallel and In the yean to come your vacant land will be taken at a rate of which you have at present no con ' caption. We have enough people la j the I'nlted States alone, who want homes, to lake up this land. What you must do In Western Can ada Is to raise more live stock. When you are doing what you ought to do In this regard, the land which Is now : selling for I2n per acre will he worth. from $r.u to $in0 pre acre. It is as i good land as tbat which is selling for I more than $100 per acre in the corn, belt. 1 "1 would rather raise cattle In West ern Canada than In the corn belt of j the I'nlled Stntes. You can get your ! food cheaper and the climate Is bet ter for the purpose We have a bet- ; tar market, but your market w ill Im prove faater than your farmers will produce thi supplies. Winter wheat can be grown in one-half of the coun- I try through which 1 have passed, and alfalfa and one of the varieties of I clover In three-fourths or It The farmers do not believe this, but it la i true." Keeping pace with wheat produc tion, the growth of railways has boom QUttl as wonderful, and the whole country from Winnipeg to tbe Itncky Mountains will soon be a net-work of trunk and branch lines. Three great transcontinental lines arc pushing construction in every direction, and at each siding the grnlu elevator Is to be found. Manitoba being the first settled province, has now an ele vator capacity of upwards of IB.OOO.OOO1 1 bushels, Saskatchewan 10,000,00, and I Alberta about 7,000,000. while the ca pacity of elevators at Port William and Port Arthur, on the (Ireat l.ukes, la upwards of 10,000,000 more. Within the provinces of Manitoba. Saskatchewan and Alberta there are flour ami oatmeal mills with a com bined capacity of 2.",,ui)u barrels per day, and situated along some famous water powers In Now Ontario, tlmro are larger mills than will be found anywhere In the Prairie Provinces. Last year the wheat crop totaled over 100,000,000 bushels. This year the crop will yield JO.000,000 more A recent summary shows that on the 1st of January. lfih!. the surveyed lands of the three western province!, totaled 134,000,000 acres, of which about .'12, 000,000 have been given as subsidies to railways, 1 1 ,000,000 disposed ol In oth er ways nnd 38,000,00 given hy tho Canadian Government as fine borne itoada, being 186,000 hour tteadl of 100 acres each. Of this enormous ter ritory, there Is probably under crop nt the present time less than 11.000. 000 acres: what the results will bo when wide awake settlers have taken advantage of Canada's offer ami are cultivating the fertile prairie land!, one call scarcely imagine.
