The government must remember Ontario is not all of Canada. It is all very well for the fruit farmers in the east to demand protection but it must be remembered that the thousands of people living in the west want fruit at cheaper rates and in better condition than the Ontario men can supply it. In order to get what we want wo have to look to the fruit sections of the western States, and the prices for berries pears and peacles..we get from there are high enough now, with- out slamming a duty on to put money in the pockets of the grow- ers of Ontario and take money out OL the pockets of the consumers of the west.

Located as it is. iu the heart of a great cat tie raising district, the material is close at hand to keep the factory operating from one year's end to the other. We would benefit by a large in- crease in wage earners. That is what the town wants. The more money paid out the more money that will be spent. Then the farmers and ranchers will have a good market for their cattle right at their doors. That fact should ensure the rapid development of this district. We would advise the town coun- cil and the board of trade to ascer- tain, without delay, the standing of the Belgo-American Meat Packers financially.
