EHMIQBATION FROM SOUTH EX
U. S. FariaerM A ru
Splendid Opportunities Offered
by Wftem Cunada.
St. Paul , Minn. , February. Present
indications arc that the Cauadiau
Northwest will draw an exceptionally
hoary movement of new settlers from
the United States this year. It should
surpass the banner record for 1907.
This is not only based on the fact
that the Americans have come to re
alize generally that the Canadian
Northwest offers splendid opportuni
ties , but also because the railroads have
awakened to the fact and are offering
rates to the Canadian Northwest which
are exceptionally favorable.
The lines which lead to St. Paul
from the east and south are offer
ing homescekers' rates to the Cana
dian Northwest this year which are
on a parity with those in existence to
the southwest for a couple of seasons.
These rates can be obtained from
any agent of the Canadian Govern
ment , who will be pleased to give all
information possible regarding those
districts which offer the greatest iu-
dtK-cnients to settlers. The weather
throughout Western Canada has been
remarkably good this year. A tele
gram from the winter wheat belt of
Southern Alberta dated at Cardston ,
Alberta , January 29th , says :
"This winter up to January 25th ,
was nothing short of a marvel , in fact ,
it was the finest anyone can rc-nem-
ber for twenty-five years , , though there
have been others nearly as good. The
days were fine , sunny and warm with
light frosts at night. Overcoats and
gloves , etc. , were discarded by most
people in the day time. There was so
little frost in the ground that postholes -
holes could be dug without any trou
ble after the first inch was broken
through. Winter wheat remained
fresh and green although there has
been no snow since the September
storm. If there is an early spring ,
winter wheat should gain a great
Amongst the reports of the yield
last year the following extracts are
II. Howe , of Magrath , Alta. , writing
on November , 1907 , says : "I have 70
acres in crop , 50 acres of wheat and
1 acres of oats. My average yield of
oats was 35 bushels to the acre , and of
wheat 45 bushels. The value to me
was $35 per acre. "
J. F. Haycock , of Magrath , writes
in November : "I had (55 ( acres in winter -
tor wheat which went GO bushels to the
acre ; oats averaged SO bushels. I also
had 12 tons of hay Avorth $10 per ton.
I go- GOO bushels of potatoes from 3
acres of laud ; I got S tons per acre
from 5 acres of sugar noets. "
J. F. Bradshaw , ' of Majrath , had
1,030 acres of winter wheat last year
which averaged 39 1 bushels to the
aciv. The value of his farm products
per acre was : Wheat , $31.00 ; oats ,
$11.20 , and barley. $25.15.

Discussing ; trade in the Chicago dl

Company's report sajs :
The general course of trade is headed
toward recovery , although the returns
dispose some irregularity. Operations
this week were restricted to some extent
by unfavorable weather and the holidaj ,
and there are smaller marketings of farm
products , less freight movement and de
cline in payments through the banks.
Against these temporary setbacks there
are gratifying olTsets in important re
sumptions at the mills and furnaces , fur
ther re-employment of workers and an
improved demand for manufactures and
Retail trade here and at most interior
points benefited from a wider buying of
hpavy u inter apparel and depletion of
stocks previously in slow absorption.
The attendance of country buyers in
the wholesale markets for staple goods

favorable comparison with a year ago ,

full selections of needs , but there is yet
a rather conservative feeling , which i *
likely to last until the trend of prices and
the business outlook become more settled.
Road salesmen have fair success in ths
textile branches and new accounts are
opened in the south and southwest sec
tions. Indications generally encourage
confidence in the prospects for wholesale
and jobbing activity.
Manufacturing is not yet marked by an
appreciable increase of outputs and im-
provemedt in deliveries is not expected to
become general before spring. The situa

trade shows more vim than at any time
since last autumn. In no case , however ,
is the buying reported as equal to a year
ago. and in some cases the decreases are
very heavy. The easing of prices of sta

this week. Building was at low ebb in

Chicago Has Greatest One-Day Snow *
fall in City's History Several
Lives Are Lost.
The worst blizzard in the -weather
history of Chicago , according to the
records of the weather bureau , swept
over the city Tuesday. The storm was
general all over the West , extending
over Missouri , Arkansas , Nebraska ,
Iowa , Wisconsin and the northern portion
tion of Illinois. Traflic 011 the railroads
was severely impeded and on some
lines made impossible by tha huge
drifts of snow. A number of lives were
lost while the storm was raging its
worst , and other fatalities were report
ed as due to the severity of the bliz
zard. Railroad trallic for a time was
practically abandoned in parts of Mich
igan , Wisconsin , Minnesota , the Dakotas -
tas , Iowa , Nebraska , Kansas , Missouri ,
Illinois and Arkansas. The floods in
southern Indiana and Ohio and Ken
tucky have been greatly augmented.
The blizzard was felt throughout the
entire middle Wc.st , the storm delaying
trains , interfering with telegraph ser
vice , and , in some places , cutting off all
traffic. The storm centers seemed to
be in Nebraska and central Illinois ,
where the downfall of snow reached a
depth of fourteen inches on the level
and was piled in deep drifts by the
high winds which accompanied the
All train traffic in Nebraska was se
riously affected. The Chicago-Denver
express , west bound ; on the Rock Isl
and road. Avas stalled in a drift near
Prairie Home , ten miles from Lincoln.
The east bound Rock Island passenger
was tied up in the Lincoln yards.
The central Illinois towns were plac
ed in the grip of the blizzard , and the
network of Interurban lines which trav
erse that section were practically put
out of business for a time. The drifts
were extremely deep on all of the coun
try roads and the rural mail service
was badly crippled for a few days , as
the drivers found it practically impos
sible to get over their routes.
When the 'blizzard abated in the
States west of the Mississippi , further
discomfort was in store for the inhab
itants , as the temperature , which was
near the free'zthg point during the
storm , dropped rapidly , while tha 'high '
winds continued in force.
Representative Hobson introduced a
bill "to provide a navy adequate for na

The Mississippi Legislature elected

says : "I never met so many men who
ought to be in jail. "
William J. Bryan , speaking at Dan
ville , 111. , declared it his belief that Jo
seph G. Cannon would be the Republican
candidate for President and that he him
self would oppose Mr. Cannon.
Three miles of signatures , representing
the desire of some 100,000 voters to pass
upon the merits of the Sunday saloon
question , have insured the appearance of
a little ballot bearing this question at the
spring election in Chicago.
Frank S. P.lack , former ex-Governor of
New York , in a speech before the Home
Market Protection Club at Boston , with
out the direct mention of names , denounc
ed in the most emphatic manner the poli
cies of the present administration and the
influences in control of the Republican
