K.. Sand- well, editor of the Financial Times and a.lecturer inMbe echool of commerce connected with McOiLl University. Mr. Sandwell has .been louring West- ern Canada, lecturing to Itoiary Clubs arid. and la aow on his, way tome from the coast, lite visit to tJae west has been under- lak'en with to learning tho sentiment ia'tbe west with regard to public and private ownership of utili- he admits frankly lliat, in advocating' private ownership ia tbo st he twisliog the mule'a tall, and in danger ot disastrous results.

Then there is the danger of governments, whose one ob- ject always seems to be to keep ID) using (ho ownership to appoint officiaH and thus build up a great elec- tion maehlue. The trouble with pub- lic ownership la lhat it U too-wldely dhtrilwted ownership. Sir Adam Beck only the other day expressed as- tonlsbment that (be people do uot look j more closely after their rights, and this would be one of the faults of owuersblp ot great transporta- tion systems. To say that a sEon could handle such business and tako it out uf Mr. Siudwe'l considers a fallacy for the commission urns! be responsible to the elected rep- resentatives of tbe people and there- fore politics Is bound to creep ia. Greater Control Mr. Sandwell advocated was a greater state ol control of privately owned utilities along the lines of Ibe railway commission. Why Ibis plan when h Is so far ad- vanced, and undertake a gfgautk- ex- periment In the public iivnersuip of railways? Mr. Sandwell concluded that he Jiaclii't applied his urgunjeuis to EJUJI icipally owned utilities fa LethbrMge. the pronJems different p.ud are T.ot complex.
