Just at present' Cnlgary is getting the credit and the financial benefit qf the stock in- dustry in'tliis district. It is something that be- longs here and can very well be kept at home. We say again that we sincerely hope Mr. Hatch and his associates will meet with success in their undertaking. OTJK POINT OF YIEW THE Toronto News declares that the Free Traders have become the masters of the Lib- era! leaders. Evidently there is intended in this h sling of If, however, the majority of .the people. Ihe sovereign people as they are .vonl to be called, arc the masters of its leaders, jl is unly riyht in the scheme of democratic rule. In speaking of "the majority of the people we Safely use, the expression. For it goes without savin" thai Ibis majority has the instinct whidi humanity, as a whole, possesses of obtaining, as cheaply ns possible, the necessities of existence j Tor this reason the greatest number j must wcli-omc free trade if they accept the axiom laid, (liiwii by the Minister of Finance, as the iiuiullijiiccc of the govcrnmenl, that "free food ]iiuaus free trade." It the cbicctidn to'free food is merely because it the principle of free trade, the nuissis will have no disinclination to the adop- May 8 is coming closer. Suppose you have lion uf t'tiis principle.

There is a long list of tariff adjustments in liansiiid, but nowhere is there the smallest reduc- tion on Ihe duly on footsluffs. A concession Was made with regard to cassava flour at the head of the jisl, which looked encouraging. But reading further the illusion is removed in that it is not on article of diet, but imported by manufacturers of explosives for use in their own factories. Fol- Jowing this, it is true, there is a reduction on llricd or evaporated bananas and cbcoamiti dessi- sweetened, or hut the im- 'Jjortasice of these foodstuffs can be ieft to the public to estimate. The government has the hardihood to call its pretty much to be e.xpected. It was truly Mexi- The turn in events in Mexico yesterday was can. The hall senson i; on, and another topic has been added to our daily stock of conversational subjects. Between baseball anil the weather we manage to struggle along manfully between elec- tions. The gold in the new Lethbridge official colors will be the redeeming feature of the combination. We may be black, but we're not so black as we're painted. We may he greeu, but we're not so (jreen as we may look. As for Ihe gold, we on common ground all looking for policy protection. Where does reason come in when nothing is done to the pressing burden of dear foodstuffs? Speaking of "reasonable" proteclion, in what is it reasonable when western farmers arc If what we hear is true lhal we ore not to have the advantage of the Winnipeg market for our even on a iforced with a "proleclion" of fhcir produce in ;'ihe shape of a duty on wheat which they do not I'desire.

But in the mind of the 'govcrnmenl the manufacturer is wise, and the farmer foolish. It accordingly legislates for the manufacturer in his inlcresl, and for the farmer Sri his interest as it should be from the govern- ment point of view. And this is reason as em liodied in a "reasonable" tariff. s a great big protest due from this portion of the world. Right here is where the Hoard of Trade should get up on ils high horse and emit the ioiidest kind of holler. THE STOCK YARDS.
