The Free Press maintains this contention of Mr. Bennett is wholly incorrect . The Dominion is acquiring the Canadian - Northern Railway, which'is a half billion dollar proposition; t but. does this: involve the raising *>* calf a, billion dollars? j 1 1 No; the outside amount ot money involved will be ten million - dollars. If the Dominion government were to take over the Canadian Pacific it ." � would be only in relation to the capital stock that financial questions would arise; and the great majority of the shareholders would be quite willing to exchange even C. P. R stock for Dominion of Canada stock basis of exchange were fair. . Bennett says the question of nationalization is wholly a financial one- \t Is nothing o>f the sort, says the Free Press. It is a great political question about which there may well be wide diversity of opinion; but -f the decision should be to go ahead the financial problem would become chief-ly a matter bt book-keeping. ped dead in the vestry of the Anglican cathedral at Quebec while in the act of putting on his robe preparatory to entering the choir., Hon.

Nor can Mr. Bennett scare the country by his cryptic remarks about how financial dignitaries would regard, with disfavor, such action by the people. This country is bigger than all the railways In it, plus all the banks in it; and the people can give effect to their will. So lightly does the Free Press treat the Bennett declaration that it remarks "that his views are significant hut not important, evidently attributing his opinion to his railway relations of the past. ganizing in the west a now progressive party.
