A Washington dispatch to the Den
ver News follows: The character of
the republican flim-flam is, brought
prominently to the fore by the semi
official announcement of what is
known as the "president's policy."
It has to do With the things that the
president will urge as necessary in
his forthcoming message for congress
to take action on. Singularly enough,
the plan does not consider tariff re
vision as a need. This is direct oppo
sition of Senator Lodge's attitude in
getting into the Massachusetts plat
form a tariff plank. The president
declared at the cabinet meeting Fri
day that rate legislation would be
the paramount matter for congress to
consider. He is alleged to have ttfken
the position that congress- cannot be
expected to devote its energies to
both rate legislation ana tariff lest
both fall and the republican forces
be scattered to the rour winds of
heaven. The fact is, the standpatters
will not hear of any tariff tinkerincr.
This they assert positively. Many of
thoso are in favor, however, of giv
ing the country a decent rate" legis
lation measure. To force the tariff
upon them would be to lose their
support on the rate bill. Hence,
while the stato and local campaigns
the spellbinders are talking the tariff,
it is with the knowledge that nothing
of the kind is in actual contemplation
by the national government from
which it must proceed,
Trip "Through North-
During the last few years the agri
cultural region of northwestern Can
ada has' attracted the attention of
farmers all over the United States
and from the eastern provinces of
the Dominion. Wonderful stories
have reached these people concern
ing the excellent character of the land
in this new country, Its capability
of producing large crops of every
thing grown farther south except
corn, of its wearing qualities wliere

principles of its fattened grasses, of

Two years ago the railroad an, -iii
companies interested in that region
took a party of agricultural editors
over the grain and stock growing sec
tions of Manitoba, Kassinlbola, Sas
katchewan and Alberta. It was. a
revelation to every member of the
party. These men were familiar with
agricultural conditions in older set
tled portions and were capable of
fudging of the agricultural possibili
ties of a new country. They exam
ined the wheat and oats fields, the
irrigated regions, the ranging prov
inces, the new towns, railroad facili
ties and in fact everything which is
a factor in the successful develop
ment of a country. This party de
cided that tile regions were remark
able, that the governmental and so
cial conditions were very satisfactory
and that northwestern Canada had a
August 21 of the present year an
other part of agricultural editors, un
der about the same auspices differ
ing somewhat in personnel, made an
other trip of the same character and
for the same purpose. They saw part
of the country viewed two years be
fore, but in addition were taken over
much that they had not seen before.
The result of the trip was not the
same as the first. Those who had vis
ited the country two years ago were
more ueepiy impressed than ever.
They noted the remarkable progress
that had been made during that time.
Hundreds of new towns were ob
served on land that two years ago was
a boundless prairie; thousands and
thousands of acres of what was then
prairie land was now bearing great
crops of wheat, oats and barley, con
taining root crops, vegetables and
even small fruits growing luxuriant
ly. They found that the class of set
tlers that were going Into that coun
try were of the highest order; farmers
of experience and with money had
purchased farms and were developing
them; men with little money but of
good principles and ambitious had
taken up homesteads and were hap
pily situated. The agricultural edi
tors representing most of the great
agricultural papers of the states grew
more and more enthusiastic, as the
tour of inspection progressed and lip
on their return were all convinced
that this new country offered remark
able advantages, for the poor as, well
as the rich men and industrious
men can go into that country, take
UP laud as a homestead or buy it from
the railroads or big land companies
at from $7 to $12 an acre and in a
short time be wealthy.
As an example: An Iowa farmer
familiar with wheat raising settled
in southern Kassinlbola, now a part
of the province of Saskatchewan.
Four years ago he nad a few thou
sand dollars to start with. He was
ambitious and bought a small tract
of land, This he increased rapidly
and in addition dealt in land. Now
after four years he owns four thou
sand acros, part of which is coyored
with wheat at the present season and
besides has many thousand
in money in the bank.

ing was done. In early September
these men, visiting their section, they
found large wheat fields in tho vi

offered them $12 an acre cash. This
represents the profit ir they had sold

vtince in price of land. Had this land
