If may well be'asked where the authorities are who are supposed to look after this nuisance. For the improvement of the aspect of the city, all weeds, not only noxious ones, should be destroyed. If there is no bylaw compelling the owners of va- cant lots to keep their plots clean then it is high time there should be one. All the attention given by house- holders to their gardens and volun- tarily to the boulevards facing their Residences is lost through fhe.invas- ion at the same -by the seeds from weeds hi''-neighboring vacant Then are the spaces between th-a" sidewalk and private property 'which' it'is" the d'uty of the city to 'keep clean, instead of leaving it to owners of the..latter for their self-respecVaiid pride in their outlook tp do. It Js not "only sufficient for city authorities to beautify parks aud pub- lic boulevards, ft is their duty to see that these are not dis- figured by neighboring weed gardens. Th-e-former they certainly have done, why they should leave the Jatter undone; Altogether the city officials need waking np to their duties with regard to the nuisance.

To .the Mani .toba Free Press we are indebted for the particulars which show how three factoiieb the at their mercy in the control over prices which a'high tariff allows them. Let us review- the facts and par- ticulars as they are set forth. There are in Cannda three factories engaged in the manufacture of. these commodi- ties, commodities which'mar bp class fed, as coming under the heading of ihe necessities of life. These, factor- 'ies: all situated in Ontario, one Cardinal, one at Port Credit, and at Brantforci. The two former iuantrfacture starch, glucose and com sjrup, the latter turns out starch only Altbojgn these three factories are in locations- they are practic> ,ally owned by two companies, the one Ht XJort'Credit being under different ownership However, it is slgnifi cant; that, althoqgh the- Port itftctorj is separate) its price -list is Identical .with that of the other com- pany, These may Hre protected to the extent of bl per rent ant!

Should 'they fall to do ithis they are curoftvjhe selling list and cannot purchase" further supplies, for the amount of duty is such that Importa- tions from England and the United States are 'practically barred. There is however another point which .requires much consideration. and that is the -raw .materials used in the manufacture of these articles e Imported free Not a pound of the corn -uaed in the pro- cesses of these manufactures is grown in Canada, so the tariff on :these has' neither the" merit of protecting the Canadian farmer, nor adding one cent to the revenue, The uses to which these commodi- lles are put show (hat they are artic- les of necessity for the public.
