Tue..HtUe town is quite ambitions. RATHER 1HVN the goieln ment am excuse for cincellmg the duty on steel rails, even temporarily, the mills are now prepar- ed to import rails to fill contracts. It is curious to what lengths certain manufacturers will go to hold on to of enriching themselves at the expense of the public. But what is more curious is (hat there are certain of the public who are deluded enough to be led iby a sentiment, 'flaunted in their faces, to allow them- selves to he fleeced under the guise of patriotism. The writer in the financial column of the Toronto Saturday Night states that without going outside the S.'ock -Exchange list one could fool, up, prob ,ably, of common stock which is taiay receiving dividend: for the creation of which stock- hot one cent was paid Into Ihe Indus- try itself. To this statement he adds tho following remarks, which may be treated us coming from an authority who has given the subject much con- sideration, and availed himi-elf of all the facts necessary: H can ho shown, too, that the creation of thltt-capital made, or helped a fciv men very wealthy.

This practice ivhinh protection allows has been clearly Tne Next Contest (Simcoe Reformer) The Halifax Chronicle, which pre- dicts a victory for the Liberals in the next federal contest, published seme figures in support: of, its view. The Chronicle says in part: "The Loyalist-Nationalist agree- ment now .has 27 followers in parliament from Quebec to :iS Liberals iiij, the.'last parliament. Sir had 54 sup- porters to 11'opponents from that province. That Quebec has de- returned, 'to its Laurier allegiance is as' certain as any- thing political can be. Tills means that in tne fiext parliament, whe- ther elected sooner or later, Mr. Borden will not have more than 11 followers. He may quite pos- sibly have less. But even at 11 it will involve a; .loss of Hi gov- ernment sefU5: and a. correspond- ing Liberal gain, or a reduction of in -iir. Borden's majority. "In the last parliament Ontario was represented by 35 Liberals and 51 In itho present parliament there are 72 Conservatives from that province (o M Liberals. The means by which this change -was brought about are well known, and need not be specified again. Their no-- i tency .has been exhausted fi ever.'' Chronicle "points out that there is a, 'reaction in Ontario, and "it! says that it is not to be doubted that more than nine seats will be changed in that province in favor of Sir Wilfrid Lnutler in the next contest. It contends that the Conservatives cannot well .Hooe to carry more than. 51 seats out of the S3 wliich Ontario will have after re- distribution. This, 'with the change in Quebec, will be more than enough to defeat the Bordeu government. The Chronicle says Mr. Borden is likely to lose rather than gain in'the'Mari- time Provinces, and to lose Jleavily in the west with the exception o'f British Columbia. As the expresses it: "But Quebec, and On tario by themselves can, and almos certainly will, defeat, him.
