ALBION RI DOC The shippers or dealers are not the only ones who will benefit by is now going into the Georgian Bay canal. The cost pt j .gtoftU {ruit on a large shipment, like everything else, falls back on the farmer. Often tho farmer does not see this; just as small fruit on a large there that the West cannot produce? frequently, perhaps he sees it, but camrot.k-lp himself. The west- t-rn fanner is the one who will ben- efit.'.by' this Wit- ness (Independent.) Yes: "The western farmer is one who will benefit by this route but "the eastern farmer has the privilege of paying for it. It is like all these great Ont., Re- view The Review voices the sentiment of a large section of the Conservative littlement of the needs of the West and a selfish, narrow appeal to the Eastern farmer. It is as clear as daylight that the Review wants to lead the farmers to believe that the Liberal government at Ottawa is thinking to much of the needs of the West and adding to the taxes of the farmers in the East.' Talk of that kind is worihy only of "Little Can- adians." The Review man wants to take a trip to the West and see for himself this country and study its needs. He will find that the West in point of population is poorly, served with transportation facilities and that the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, a part of the Liberal policy, is an absolute-neeessity> ii the! farmers are to find means to ship out their grain. Closer study oi transpor- tation facilities and rates, will con- vince him that the shortest water route possible is desirable from Fort William- to the sea. The round-about route from the head of Lake Superior to Montreal is too expensive and too slow as is the all rail route. It is the duty of the government to solve this problem, just as it was the duty oi the government to build the Trent Valley Canal to solve the transporta- tion problem in the Peterboro district. The Western fanner has his share to pay in the expense of that minor un dertaking of benefit" to a limited few, just as eastern farmers must bear a part of the cost of the Georgian Bay reported to over'in Geoigia.

A few days later he rode into town on. a mule, leading his prisoner tied up snugly with a clothes line. The prisoner looked as if, he had seen hard service.
