The committee will be glad to hear you, and you may proceed. Mr. JOHNSON. We are, as you understand, all here to protest against this reciprocity bill.

Halaman 968 - Think of it! Such an offer of the choicest of "The last best West." The gate is unlocked to the best great tract of virgin land in sunny Alberta. Districts previously sold are making fortunes for American farmers who realize that western Canada is the future source of wheat supply for the United States. Write for free book now. First come, first served; earliest arrival, biggest value, quickest results. Write quick for "Alberta Handbook," and all the facts about this land of home and fortune.
Halaman 974 - States to sell, he must pay $1.25 duty on the flour and 15 cents on the bran and middlings, or a total of $1.40. Then under the present law the American miller is protected against the Canadian miller to the amount of 27i cents per barrel of flour and the byproducts, if both barrels are made of Canadian wheat.
Halaman 958 - ... very few data were secured except those which related to crop production, after which the data were extended to live stock and other affairs of the farm and the farm home. The first two years' work was in a way experimental. Methods for collecting and recording the statistics had to be revised, and many difficult problems, like finding the exact rate of wages per hour for men and horses, were not worked out by the most exact methods until the second year.

Halaman 957 - Department of Agriculture joined in cooperation with the division of agriculture of the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station to gather data from Minnesota farms on the cost of producing field crops and live-stock products.

Three young men, students of the Minnesota College of Agriculture, were employed as route statisticians, and three statistical routes were established: one in...
Halaman 957 - ... COST OF FARM PRODUCTS. In studying the question of farm management it early became evident that actual cost data would be necessary in determining the profits of any scheme of farm production. To collect this cost data the Bureau of Statistics of the United States Department of Agriculture, in 1902, joined in cooperation with the division of agriculture of the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station to secure from Minnesota farmers the facts relative to the cost of producing field and live-stock...
Halaman 974 - Canadian miller to the amount of 27i cents per barrel of flour and the byproducts, if both barrels are made of Canadian wheat. Under the proposed treaty he would be protected to the amount of 50 cents on the flour and 9 cents on the bran and shorts, or 59 cents in all, an increase of over 100 per cent. Will this tend to reduce the cost of living to the consumer, or will it add to the profits of the miller?
Halaman 967 - I was in one of those western towns and started up from the depot, and the first building I came to had a beautiful sign on it reading, " First Chance Saloon. After I passed I looked back and the other side of the sign read, " Last Chance Saloon." [Laughter.] That is the way with these fellows. Thousands of home seekers and shrewd investors have snapped up all the former tracts offered by the Canadian Pacific Railway. This new one just now opened is your best chance. Here you'll find American neighbors...
Halaman 954 - ... proposition upon us at this time. Now, I will not -take any more time on that feature of the proposition. I want to turn now to the cost of production. There has been a good deal of discussion here and some question as to whether or not there was a difference in the wage of a hired man in Canada and in the United States. I am not going to take the time of the committee in discussing that, because I have better evidence as to what the cost of production in this country is, and I also have better...
Halaman 969 - ... duty on the wheat. If the Canadian miller takes another 4} bushels of wheat and makes from it 1 barrel of flour and 74 pounds of bran and shorts and brings it to the United States to...
