V  In. other words, iivun with tho new rates In force, the farmer will obtain for hiM wheat ii price that will miike one bu^jhel pay tho freight tolls on 113 tforccnt more, wheat than In IDH; If this ahbuid prove to be "dlscour-hgtng" to tho western faHndr. ' Tho Telegram holievos that' It Will be tho, kind ot "discouragement," which niosj of them j�lll take with a smile. Now let us see bow the new r^tea win ".discourage" hog rollalnR^ ; In 1914 hogs aoUl af fV.Oi!. a hundred' pounds. Tl\l8 sum would ^ay the freight chargOH on 4.640 pounds of hoge from Mlnnodoaa to Winnipeg, a distance of 135 miles. In 1!)17 liogs wore worth tl4.B5 a hundred poundi. This sum paid the freight cimrgea on !�,870 pounds from Mlnnedost to Winnipeg. With tho proposed Increase In rates and with hogs selling at the same price %HM one hundred poundo of hogs win pny tho tranaportatlon tolls on 8,125 pounds between the same polnlH. In other words, the farmer will ho able to ship 75 percent more hoga for tho price ho wilt obtain for ouo hundred pounds today than he could under 11114 hog pricea and 1914 freight' ratea. It la Indeed ditflcuu to find any "dis couragemont'' In Ihoae figures. Thiin look at beet-In 1914 the price of cattle was |fi.88 a hundrcil pounds. This' Huni would pay tho freight charges on 3,li:il pounds of cattle from Sourla to Winnipeg. In 1917 the price of cattle was $!l.o;i ii. hundred pounds. This sum piilil the transportation chnrgea on ii,;\2o pounds between the same polnla. Under the now freight rntea this sanio price will still pay the freight churgea on 4,630 pounds. In other words, one hundred pounds of ciittli) at the ion price will pay for 17.7 per cent more-thanaportatlon, even under the advanced rates, than one hundred pounds at the 1914 price would pny for under preaont rates. Where, la the "discouragement" ot production? And, besides, there la every good ronson to believe that the prices of farm produce during the proaent year will bo considerably higher thhn.m I!) 17. No, clearly it ia not any fear that the now ratea will cause;'"Uis-courageniont" of farm productl^hi that accounts for the protest agalnat them. The chief reason are but two-and they art) both natural and not alto-fiother unreasonable. Tho first la that we all dlallke paying more for anything than we have been accustomed to pay for It. Whether wo really believe that "kicking" will do ufi any good oj not, It la a time honored cnatom to make a kick any-i way on the offchance that It might produce reauUs. The aecond reason fOi; Uie opposition is the general and possibly sound be-lioi' tliut, while the other roads must obliiln lilgher prices tho C.P.R. does not need them, and will make unrea-SDnablo profits If perniitted to charge them. TIiIb second argument ia the sound oiie, ^mi, can readlly,,,he;dlppoi}ed ptf. Tho C.i'.U. !iko every other buaineaa' enterprise, is entitled to a fair prOfit. and to no more. That la-all It aaya It Vi'ants. Very, well, then, let us take it at its word. Let the government niaku apecial provisions, when putting tho new rates into effect, that :)0 railway shall be permitted to keep, for Uh own uses .prqtlts .'jgreatBr;'than a iixed percentage, all over, .and>-above that rate to go to the government, to lighten our ever-growing load of taxation. Thia would dispose ot tho only serious, argument against the new rates, would eliminate the possibility of the most highly efficient organization profiting unreaaonably by-the weaknesa ot the other roads,, and - would, giVe'the other syatems.a 'chancei'to piill themselves out of their embarrasments, which are a constant menace to the security of Canadian finance. ^ lOCONTROLTHE Kdnionton, AUn., Feb. Ifl. -r- Now regulations for the control of packing houses and livoatock oxchangoa throughout Canada will be made as thb reault of a conference at Ottawa, tropi which H. A.

Tltcy will have to do eapu-clally with audi matters �as purchasing methods, feeds and feeding at. the Btockyarda, weighing after sale and Insurance for condemnation of dla-oaand anlnmla. Mr. Craig aaya that an entirely harmoiilomt agreement waa reached on all theao points between the representatives ot the several interests and yio Hat of regulations will bo nmdo offeotlve by an order-in-councll ot tho fetjeral government.

Th'e next Issue la the Prussian franchise. I have before me the text of the Reform bill, with IIa moat un-Pru^^lan preamble, preacliing In �o many worda "trust In tho people" (Vert^auen in das Volk). It makea an end once for |ill of the' Three-class Franchise, and seta up eaual and direct voting. When one recollects that in the old system the two wealthier classes hud twice the voting power of the third class, which included eighty-five per cent, of the population, the minor defects at the new hiy are not worth mentioning. The hill sets up for the state Diet of benighted Prussia substantially (he same measure of manhood suffrage which the imperial Reichstag lias had from the start. Tho lOeuz ?!eitung (the organ ot the Lutheran reaction, predicts that If thl'a bill la passed, the Socialists In a House of 455 membera will gain 140 or 150 Beats (they now have 10), and the Conservative majority will give place to a majbrily ot Socialists, Poles and Radlcala. But will the bill pass? The Qer man press ia full ot speculations and accurate countings of votes, from which one gathers that, after stormy debates and many intrigues in the committee stage. It will be either pass ed or rejected by a narnow margin of ten or twenty- votes. The Conaerva lives mean to fight hard-even against the kaiser, who^e personal support la pledged to the bill. The Prussian Junker fears God, honors the King and expects implicit obodlonco from both. The ministry is pledged to ro-alBl any araepdn^onta which would ant up plural or unequal voting.
