We cannot cover this with the gold at our disposal and we have no great stocks ot provisions for sale.

Q. E. McKEAGE NEW YORK, Dec. 24.-(Can. Press.) -Referring to the embargo tariff bill now before congress, the Wall Street Journal this 'morning remarks that that legislative body "Is In that dangerously psychological state when it is nervously anxious to quiet clamorous demands that it shall 'do something.' That 'something,' the paper goes on, "is founded on the entirely false idea that anything congress does in an emergency is better than nothing. Too many ot our people and especially our farmers, have failed to Bee that emergency legislation of the 'do something' variety, bas in the past been worse than nothing, because, In practice,-it has been positively mischievous. "The last thing in the world an embargo on Canadian wheat, or a protective duty imposed now, will do is to advance the world price. That price may advance on Its merits in the near future, although our farmers' weak bull pool in wheat Is still hanging over the market, but any such rally will be irrespective of tariff legislation which can do nothing to affect the present unsold crop, "Second thoughts are best, especially in legislatures. Popular clamor is generally wrong, or right for the wrong reason. Perhaps congress may forebear to make Christmas any bluer than it is," Won't Name Anybody to Repre-sent "National Railways in Inquiry OTTAWA, Dec. 24.-(Can. Press) -"The management of the Canadian National Railways has notified the minister of labor that it will not name a person to represent it on the board of conciliation which was es tabllshed to deal with tho dispute between the employee.s and management, over the Hanna order."
