FROM MANY YVITNE88ES.
In summing up a complete refuta-
tion of the statements sent out by the
National Wholesale Liquor Dealers as-
sociation In an article on "Facts About
Prohibition in Kansas" Governor Ar-
thur Capper says:
Let ua call the witnesses and seo
what they think of prohibition in
Kansas. If anyone should know they
should know for they llvo with It and
The governor of Kansas says pro-
hibition Is a creat success.
Every stato official who has spoken
out says prohibition succeeds.
More than 700 editor and newspa-
per men of Kansas In state conven-
tion unanimously endorsed prohibi-
tion. Every political party in Kansas fa-
vors the prohibition law.
No minister has over opened his
mouth In favor of return cf license;
neither nab any schoolteacher.
The president 0f Kansas Retailers
says prohibition pays.
Tho president of tho State Hankers'
association believes that prohibition
la a tremendous asset to Kansas.
Ono hundred and sixty-six bankers
have filed their testimony in favor of
tho law with the Temperance society
of the Methodist Episcopal church
and only six could bo found In all tho
state who doubted the wisdom of this
The president of tho Kansas Medi-
cal society believes In prohibition.
The president of tho Commercial
clubs of Kansas has said that prohibi-
tion has added real valuo to every
acre of Kansas land.
The supreme court has testified In
the following strong language to the
benefits of the prohibition law:
"Tho prohibitory law is well en-
forced throughout the Btato. It 1b as
generally well enforced as any other
criminal law. The enforcement of the
law distinctly promotes social welfare
and reduces to a minimum economic
waste consequent upon the liquor traf-
flco and allied evils. The saloonkeeper
and bis comrades have been excluded
from effectlva participation In the poli-
tics of tho state."
And to completely settle the ques-
tion for all time the legislature of
Kansas not by a majority but unan-
imously passed at its last session a
concurrent resolution affirming In no
uncertain language Its belief in tho ad-
vantage of prohibition.
FOR WHAT OTHER PURPOSE?
"The moving picture show has be-
come a powerful factor in arousing the
prejudice of thoughtless and weak-
minded people against the liquor In-
terests and particularly against the
saloon" says the Liberal Advocato a
liquor dealers' organ.
"In virtually every blood and thun-
der and crime film produced thero 1b
sure to be a scene depicting a bunch
of lowbrows plotting some villainy
from burglary to murder while lick-
ing up liberal libations of liquor to
give them tho proper amount of cour-
age to accomplish their deed.
"Each day thousands of these films
are portrayed to millions of men
women and children in every part of
the country and those who know no
better and many who ought to know
better soon becoome Imbued with the
belief that liquor is only manufactured
and saloons established for the pur
pose of Increasing lawlessness and
crime." . .
PAY8 NOTHING BACK.
This from Billy Sunday:
"The saloon comes as near being a
rat hole for a wage earner to dump
his wages In as anything you can find.
The only Interest it pays Is red eyes
and foul breath and the loss of health.
You go In with money and you come
out with empty pockets. You go In
with character and you come out ru-
ined. You go in with a good position
and you lose it. You loso your posi-
tion In tho bank or In the cab of tho
locomotive. And tho saloon pays noth-
ing back but disease and damnation
nnd gives an oxtra dividend In delir-
ium tremens and a free pass to per-
dition. And then it will let your wife
be burled in the potter's field and
your children go to tho asylum and
yet you walk out and say that the
saloon Is a good Institution when it
Is tho dirtiest thing on earth. Jt
hasn't ono leg to stand on and has
nothing to commend it to a decent
man not one thing." .-

AMERICAN LABOR BEST
FACT THAT EMPLOYERS ARE
QUICK TO RECOGNIZE.
Foreman Makes Assertion That the
Fastest Workmen Are Fflund In
New York Plasterers Men-
tioned as a Case In Point.
"I can readily understand" said an
employer of labor "that the Glasgow
strlko was as it Is reported caused
by American workmon speeding up
the machines and so turning out more
work than their British fellowB; also
that their superior garments worn
whllo going to and from tho shops
caused somo dissatisfaction to the
soma people. Without going Into the
psychology or sociology of tho situa
tion every employer in this country
recognizes the fact
"I do not mean however that every
best workman Is a native son. Far
from It. Some of the best were born
In other countries but they learned
their trades hero or arrived from their
homo lands before they had becomo
settled In their habits of labor.
Thrown among fast workers they de-
velop the same speed of operation and
becomo fine examples of American
"And of all America tho city of New
York turns out tho best and fastest
of tho skilled labor Whllo on my
way to Detroit recently I met in the
smoking compartment of the Pullman
car a German foreman of plasterers
and got into conversation with him.
He was going to the samo city to take
chargo of a gang of Now York plas-
terers who had been sent there to
work on a mansion that was being
built by a wealthy man.
"I asked him why his firm sent men
from New York to Detroit paying
their traveling expenses Instead of
selecting men In that city and ha told
me it was because they could do the
work much better and much faster
He himself he said had been sent to
a number of other' cities during his
experience ob a foreman and had
never been able to secure from local
talont the samo efficiency he could
from a Now Yorker.
'"If you want to get tho same
amount of work from them' he said
'you have to keep driving them all the
time. What is an ordinary day's stint
for a New York plasterer Is at least
top speed for the outsider. As a rulo
when ho Is forced to keep up such a
rapid gait ho doesn't do the work
well nnd sometimes It has to bo done
all over again. Thero Is no profit In
"I asked him how the American
workman compared with his fellow
from European countries.
" 'Well' he answered 'I have a good
many foreigners under me from ono
year to another; they aro not all born
hero. Neither was I. Naturally I
would favor Germans all other things
being equal but the foreigner no mat-
ter what his nationality who comes to
this country a skilled laborer already
can never compare with his brother
let us say who emigrated In his youth.
He cannot catch up. He makes sev-
eral motlonB where his brother makes
ono to accomplish thb same thing and
so loses tlmo."
New Shoes Saved British.
Chiropodists in uniform as a neces-
sary and honored part of tho British
arms is proposed by a London paper
inspired by tho marching record of a
Lancashire regiment which boasts of
a well-known chiropodist among Its
ranks. This regiment has made the
hardest practice marches without a
man dropping out. The reason is tho
fine shape the regimental feet are In.
Detached from the humdrum routine
of duty the soldlor-chlropodlst spends
his jay peeling end paring. If every
regtmenf had the same "advantage
such things sb retreats from Mons
might be made without discomfort.
Besides the thing which saved the
British on that occasion was the bad
state of tho German feet duo to now
boots. The National Society of Chi-
ropodists which has a clinic In Lon-
don for the free treatment of soldiers
and sailors Is enthusiastic over the
Idea of a chiropodist corps wearing
khaki and bearing tho corn and razor
or some other appropriate insignia on
Lived Long Under Water.
A resuscitating machine such as Is
used by the United States government
In mine-rescue work recently kept a
young womarr alive under water for
ono hour and ten minutes.
This remarkable feat was performed
during the session of the safety and
sanitation exposition in Now York.
Conducted under tho direction of n for-
mer surgeon of the United States bu-
reau of mines the test was performed
for the purpose of Illustrating tho effi-
cteiicy of mechanical respiration.
Tho breathing mask which has a
double rubber tube extending to a
hand-operated lung apparatus was
strapped over tho girl's nose nnd
mouth and sho was then placed In a
large glass-front tank.
Though submerged for one hour and
ten minutes sho did no breathing of
her own accord.
Making Flags of Wool.
Flags used in tho American navy
bavo hitherto been made of Imported
wool. A new process of carding and
weaving American cotton 1b- being put
to the test on two revenue cuttera
and it is believed by tho Inventors
that the cotton flags so made will bo
superior to tho old ones In that they
will not tray so quickly.

Wheat and Other Grains Have
jHad an Excellent Start
Tho seeding of spring wheat was
pretty general this spring about 7th
of April or about as early as in Illinois
and Iowa. Oats and barley followed.
Information Is to hand that on first
of May all seeding was practically fin-
ished. Farmers will now be busy at
their breaking and tho land for sum-
mer fallow will bo entered upon. Some
who did not get their land prepared
last fall will be later than tho others
but as tho spring in Western Canada
has been very open they will be only
a few days later. At tho tlmo of
writing rain would bo welcome but
at Bcedlng time tho ground contained
a splendid lot of moisture and tho
lack of rain at tho present tlmo will
not bo serious. Tho number of farm-
ers who havo gono into the raising of
emtio has been considerably in-
creased and tho preparation for ox-
tcnslvo cultivated grass pastures Is
In evidence overywhere. Tho culti-
vation of fodder corn is being largely
entered upon In Manitoba thero be-
ing upwards of 25000 acres In corn.
In Saskatchewan thero will bo o
large Increase in tho area planted and
In Alberta many of the more progres-
sive farmers are taking hold of It.
The yield varies according to tho cul-
tivation it receives and runs from
flvo to nine tons per aero. In somo
portions of Manitoba wbcro it has
been poor for somo years success has
been achieved In ripening and it is
expected that a variety will soon be
developed that will provido seed tor
the entire West that will at an early
date give to Westers Canada a fame
for tho growing of a marketable corn
equal to that It has now for the
growth of smaller cereals
A trip through Western Canada re-
veals field after field of alfalfa tho
growth of which In any portion of
the country is now absolutely assured.
When theso facts are mado known. to
tho farmers of tho corn and alfalfa

wealth makers is so well known thero
will bo no hesitancy in taking advan-
tage of tho splendid gift of 1C0 acres
of land mado by tho Government of
the Dominion of Canada where equal
opportunities aro offered. Besides
these freo grant lands there are tho
lands of somo of tho railway com-
panies and largo land companies that
may bo had at low prices and on
reasonable terms. During tho month

ber of men In our mercantile marlno
who can handle a rowboat would
surprise the majority of people and
those who can handle a sail are an
even smaller band. They get almost
no opportunity of learning. As for
swimming very few are experts and
battalions of them cannot swim a

that unaided they could keep them-

to Feed the World'
The war's (earful devastation
crops tuts caused an unusual demand for eraln
from the American Continent. The
world must be fed and there is an unusual demand
for Canadian wheat. Canada's Invitation to every
industrious American Is therefore especially attrac-
tive. She wants farmers to make money and happy
prosperous homes for themselves while helping her
to raise immense wheat crops.
You can get a Homestead of 160 acres FREE and
other lands can be bought at remarkably low prices. Thick of the money you
can make with wheat at its present high prices where for some time it is lia-
ble to continue. During many years Canadian wheat fields have averaged 20
bushels to the acre many yields as high as 45 bushels to the acre. Wonderful
crops also of Oals Barley and Flax.
