If your dream of success seems like a hopeless ambition,
if you are discouraged trying to get ahead on high priced
land, if your present location fails to give you opportunity,
there is a new deal for you, a new chance in the fertile, virgin
farms of Western Canada, where wheat produces 20 to 40
bushels to the acre, where the 1922 crop was biggest in history,
where oats, barley and hay and fodder crops are the basisof a great
dairy industry, and a man’s work brings him success and prosperity.
Low Priced Land—the Last Great West
In Western Canada you still can buy virgin'prairie land at $15 to $20
per acre, on long terms if desired, near to town, railroads, etc.—land such
as has for many years produced the world’s prize winning wheat, oats, barley, flax. rye.
alfalfa. Canada had no “war time’’ land boom; prices are not inflated — you get
in on the ground floor.
Taxes Favor the Farmer
as Values Increase
The tax laws of Western Canada encourage
the producing fanner. The tax on land is
reduced when it is brought under cultiva
tion-while on your buildings, machinery,
improvements, personal property, automo
bile, there is no tax at all. A single crop is
often worth more, acre for acre, than the
cost of the land.

mit Issued for Interment
of One of Purnell’s
St. Joseph, Mich., April 30.—A
single burial permit anil a single grave
was used to bury two women of the
House of David cult, it was revealed
at Monday’s investigation of the
colony. Further investigation into
the death records will be made.
The burial permit that excited sus
picion of the authorities was issued
for the burial of Harriet Hanna, 61
years old. She was buried in Febru
ary, 1919. Ten days after her funeral
the body was remove# and shipped to
1 Canada and the body of 16-year-old
Dollie Gray was buried with the
same permit in the same grave.
Records of the city clerk’s office,
altered and disfigured, according to
the authorities, disclosed that the girl
had died of “interstitial nephritis.”
The girl is said to have been a fav
orite of “King Benjamin” Burnell,
head of the cult, for whom the au
thorities are searching. Purnell dis
appeared several months ago, when
an investigation of the colony became
probable after civil suits had been
filed by malcontents.
Attorney General Andrew Dough
erty, personally supervising the
state’s probe of the cult, indicated
Monday night that more than 50
bodies dumped without prayer or
ceremony into the windswept, sandy
cemetery, may be disinterred before
the present inquiry is concluded. The
body of Dollie Gray will be exhumed
Tuesday, Mr. Dougherty said.

U. S. Supreme Tribunal Puts
Liquor Back on American
Ships and Forces Transfers
Outside Three Mile Limit.
BY WILLIAM P. FLYTHE,
Universal Service Correspondent.
Washington, April 30.—The Unitea
States supreme court Monday ruled
that American ships may sell and
transport liquors outsido the three
mile limit from the American coast.
The same decision held that neither
American nor foreign ships may come
1 within the three ir--le limit with
The immediate effect is to legalize
all rum traffic on the high seas, in
cluding the liquor fleet that hovers i
off the Atlantic coast.
Lasker Likes Decision.
These high points are stressed:
1. Chairman Lasker, of the
shipping board, says the decision
will enable American vessels to
compete with the British. He fa
vors the sale of liquor, but will
keep the ships “dry” until ordered
to lift the lid by the president.
2. It will, in the opinion of cue
toms officers, greatly increase the
number of rum ships.
3. It precipitates a fight to
have the president Declare Amer
ican owned ships “dry” under the
same law that the navy is now
4. “Drys” will seek new legis
lation in the next congress to
change the law and nullify the
decision or the supreme court.
Mellon Changes Plans.
Secretary Mellon is drawing tip
regulations to permit foreign vessels
sufficient time to get rid of their li
quor stores in line with the supreme
court decision. He said that he would
allow ships now on their way to
America to clear for their return
voyage before making the law op
The decision took the law enforce
ment agencies of the government
completely by surprise, Just at a time
when extensive preparations were be
ing made to sweep the liquor traffic
from the high seas, so far as this
country is concerned. j
Both “drys” and “wets” claimed the
supreme court decision as a victory.
What Will Daugherty Do?
Regarding the request for a decis
ion on tho right of the president to
use the navy to suppress rum run
ning, it is now Intimated that At
torney General Daugherty will con
tend that funds cannot be diverted
once they are appropriated and that
the navy cannot be used in this in
The high court held there is nothing
in the 18th amendment to prevent
American ships from having liquor on
board when in foreign waters, but
decided tlse amendment does apply
specifically to foreign ships entering
territorial waters of the United States.
Foreign ships cannot bring lmiuor
in as sea stores, the court held.
Shipping Interests Appealed.
Monday’s decision was handed down
New York, which upheld the ruling of
Attorney General Daugherty that
American ships must be “dry” wher
ever they may be. Judge Hand had
held, however, that foreign ships i
could bring liquor into the three mile !
limit, provided the liquor was under
band as "ship stores.” For the Amer
ican lines the appeal was brought by
the United American Lines, which
claimed it was illegal to prohibit them
from opening their bars when Ameri- .
can ships pass out of three mile zone. !
For the foreign lines the appeal
was made by the Cunard and Anchor i
lines, the Oceanic Steam Navigation
Company, the International Naviga
tion Company, the Compagne Gener

The foreign lines based their ob- i
jections mainly on the Italian law re

Such, in substance, was the un
equivocal declaration of Ambassador
Henry P. Fletcher, head of the

Monday afternoon while the political I
commission of the conference was in j
session discussing the program topics i
of “closer relations" and "encroach- |

Referred for “Study."
Immediately after the declaration \
by the head of the United States
delegation the commission voted to
refer the topics, without recommen
dation, t.o study by the governing
board of the Pan-American union.
Replying to statements favoring
the creation of a Pan-American as
sociation related to the League of

that the United tSates would oppose
any European political participation I
in the new world.
The last glimmer of hope for con- J

of the armaments commission when
Brazil declared her opposition to

opposed the plan.
