Duty Devolving on Farmers of
This Continent
Western Canada Well Prepared to
Meet the Needs of the Old World—
"The Earth ivs a Machine Which
Yields Almost Gratuitous Service to
Every Application of Intellect"—
Speaking with one of the commis
sioners appointed to make a survey of
the food situation in the battle-torn
•countries of Europe the writer was
told tliat ilie depletion and shortage
•of food was far greater than anybody
had expected. With the investigation,
which at that time had merely started,
much had been brought to light that
had only been surmised. Herds of live
stock were completely wiped out, fields
that had been prolific yielders of grain,
roots and vegetables were terraced and
hummtfeked by bombs and shells,
many of them still lying unexploded
and dangerous. Until this land can be
gone over and cleaned nothing in the
way of cultivation can be carried on,
and even where that is done the work
of leveling and getting under cultiva
tion will take a long time.
Much more devolves upon the farmer
on this side of the Atlantic than was
at first supposed. Herds of live stock
will have to be replenished, and this
will take years the provlsioiting of
the people in the meantime is tne task
the farmers here will be asked to un
dertake. Producing countries will be
taxed to their utmost to meet this de
mand all that can be provided will
be needed. This need will continue
for some time, and during this period
prices will be high. The opinion of
those who have given the question
most careful thought and study is that
food scarcity will be greater than ever
before. The Allies will have to feed
Germany, Austria, Turkey add Russia
and this in addition to the require
ments of European neutrals for in
creased supplies now that there is no
submarine menace.
To the Canadian and American farm
er this means a demand for his grain
fully as great as at any time In the
past. Wheat will be needed, meat will
be required. The slogan "don't stop
saving food" is as necessary today as
ever. The purpose of this article is to
direct attention to the fact that hun
dreds of thousands of acre's of land
in Western Canada are still unoccu
pied, and this land is capable of pro
ducing enough to supply all needs. On
its rich grasses are easily raised—and
cheaply too—the cattle that will be
sought in its soil lies the nutriment
that makes easy the production of the,
grain that will be needed, and In both
the farmer will be assured of a good
profit on his investment. The land can
be purchased at low prices, on easy
terms, and with the abundance of re
turns that it will give, it does not mean
a matter of speculation. The facts as
set out are known, and certainly are
These facts, the low cost of the land,
and its great productivity, combined,
with *the admirable marketing and'
transport facilities at the disposal of
the farmer make farming in Western
Canada an attractive proposition.—Ad

Effort to Pass $100,000,000
European Relief Bill Still Un
successful In the
By'Associated Press.'
Washington, Jan. 25.—Returning to
hl8 attack on the $100,000,000 European
food relief bill today, Senator Sher
man. of Illinois, republican, reiterated
his belief that some of the money was
to be used to feed Russian bolsfrevists.
The peace conference Russian policy,
he declared, supported that opinton.
Referring to reports that President
Wilson planned a continental tour
when he returned from Europe, Sen
ator Sherman said the president con
templated a publicity campaign to
work up sentiment for immediate rat
ification of the peace treaty, which
-vould include recognition of the bol
shevist government. The president, he
declared, would "start a back fire"
against every senator who opposed the
Meyers in Protest.
Indorsing the protest of Senator
Sherman against any recognition of
the bolshevist governments, Senator
Meyers, of Montana, democrat, said:
"I am greatly surprised and disap
pointed that the powers In conference
at Paris consented to enter into nego
tiations with those people or consent
to meet them on a common plane. It
will bring joy to the heart of every I.
W. W.. anarchist, pro-German and,
enemy of organized society in this
country and cause them to increase
their conspiracy and efforts to over
throw this government and all organ
ized society."
Denouncing the bolshevists'as "the
worst criminals ever knows—worse
than the Germans"—Senator Meyers
"Crime should be punished, not re
Doubt* concerning the proper way to
vote has been expressed in speeches
by numerous senators. Smoot, Hard
ing and Cummins, for example, said
they could not make up their minds
whether it would be better to vote no
and deny Europeans Amercan aid, or
to vote yes and perhaps learn later
that they had helped the packers "put
something over."

Washington, Jan. 25.—The war has
loosened the morals of every country
in Europe, according to Representa

says, a great influx of Europeans, in
cluding many women of lax moral
ideas. Mr. Johnson declares many Ger
mans plan to migrate here, I have been
told by German prisoners. "They think
they can get rich in America. It seems
to be their idea that they can shoot at
us with machine guns one day and
come over and live among us the next,"
said Mr. Johnson. Immigration should

of the South Dakota congressman.

Allen Statements.
The resolution was founded on state
ments \made by Governor Allen, of
