EMBARGOES MUST NOT BE FOR INTERESTS' PROTECTION. The advice has gone out from Ottawa, says the Grain Growers' Guide, that the recommendations of the "War Trade Board for placing an embargo on impartl of certain raanuf!i.c-tured goods from the United Stnte.^, as a metns of improving the intprn.T-tional trade b.tlanco between the two countries, have bseii hold up indefinitely. It is vi;>lerstood thiit the strong opppsilioii of certain merabcrs :cf the governrncr* who fe.a".i I that such an vmij.x'.jo would he ia substance n.i ta-iir'!ct inethol of protip-tion for fho Cnadian ninn'i jictiiror, ;Was re-spmisib'e for the sh'Viv'ng of the War TTade Board's reccuunend.;-tions.' If this be true the gratitude or the West may bo generously expressed towards a governmout that could be so restrained. One of the best evidence^ that the government has witheld its approval of an embargo on imports, is a complaining editorial, entitled "Procrastination at Ottawa," published in the last issue of the Financial Post o' Canada, which is a consistent defender of J]ie entrenched powers ol spe cial privilege. The Post complains that "more than three weeks ago the intimation came that import* Into Canada from the United States would be greatly curtaifed to right ex-change'^ and that "business prepared to adjust Itself to it as h-has to many other developments of the war." Since that time there has been no action, no d^inlte announcement on the part of the gOTemn>�nt setting the minds of business at rest with regard to the proposed, embargo.  As a matter of fact, the only intl-maHon that came with regard to the restriction of Imports, emanate^ from the War Trade Board, and not from the goviernmant. Sir Fobert Borden, immediately after the report had been -circulated from Ottawa, announced that the Cabinet had not tlxen^even considered the recommsndations of the War Trade Board. Therefore, "business" and the Financial Post had no right whatever to assume that the War Trade Board was the government, and ^at ao-*mbargo on imports from the -ilnited States was a certainty. 248TH ANfJiVERSARY OF PIONEER CONCERN. . .The Hudson's Bay Co.
