But the people ihave come realize that pro- tection ,is not sane or scientific and cannot but result in trusts and mon- opolies with a corresponding increase in prices and the cost "of living. They see -that it is entirely in die interests of the wealthy, capitalists and against the interests of the ordinary citizens. It makes the rich unduly rich and the poor much poorer. It is not only in the West that this is realized but all over the country. Tlhe people of the East are becoming more and more convinced of their mis- take in upholding a protective tariff, and in expressing himself as he did, Sir -Wilfrid 'Laurier is accurately ex- pressing the thought of the great 'bulk news of the local and district _ of the people of Canada.

To the outsider unacquainted with the conditions existing locally, the de- feat of William Jennings Bryan in his own state party convention comes as a surprise. It was said that when the Democratic leader came out so strongly in opposition TO the liquor that he was stepping ahead of his party, and that it would mean deposition from the leadership, j" Such .has proved the case, for the main -cause of the split was his effort to have a county local option ada's best newspaper men. He rose from the ranks and made good. As parliamentary correspondent he was a decided success, and his.articles as war correspondent are still renieia- by the public as well ss by his fellow journalists.

(Weekly Sun.) In Ontario, with our vastly -greater- diversity in production, there can nev- er be a general failure. Weather which is hardest on hay and mangels is corn; there may be fail- ure In winter'wheat, -but either oatfc, or barley will cooie out all rigiht; and as .practically all our crops are fed on the farm, the increase infertility and humus thereby provided for great- j ly reduces the danger of in any fine. Even in feeding there is a di- versity; hogs, some dairy-, cattle, beef bullocks, poultry and sheep ars kept on the great majority 01 the farms of this province. In at least some of these lines 'there is a profitable re- turn every year. There are no gambler's gains to'be made in Ontario farming; neither are there the risks of -gambler's losses "which are ever pre- sent in 'She West; there is the assur- ance of a reasonable competence as the reward for reasonable effort. The one-crop system, coupled with a most j uncertain climate, is a great handicap on the West Side Lights Run Both Ways. During a recent trial in a county court it became necessary that, the position of a "staircase in a large flour mill should be explained -to the jury.

FromQferSancttims clause Inserted in the state platform. The clause was turned down by an overwhelming vote and thereby Bryan was deposed from the leadership of the Democrats of Nebraska, a position he has "held for twenty years. This, however, -was not the only cause leading to the present situa- tion. The party, or at least a very large section of it, ias become con- vinced -that Mr. Bryan was not a sta- ble leader.

The tariff reform papers of Great Britain are trying to discount Sir Wil- fri Laurier's statements on the sub- ject of freer trade, and are trying to make the people of the Old Country think that he is merely talking for ef- fect in a part of the country where the sentiment is strongest in favor of a reduction of the tariff, and that he not in ex- press the-thought of the people of as a -whole. If these papers were to study care- fully the expressions of opinion in this country .they would soon discover that there is a growing sentiment in favor of a reduction of the tariff and there- toy -securing freer -trade. This is the tendency all over the American continent, the insurgent movement in the Republican party in the United States showing this clearly. The people of Canada, both East and West, see the results both in T this country and in the country to the j Hang the Expense. (Prince 'Rupert 'Empire.)
