They come to this part of Canada to get a Ykion of the West, with a view, .if wo read their purpose aright, to gauge the possibilities of our great plains for establishing of the great industries of tte East or for opening auxiliaries to these in the way of affiliated and rela- tive industries, The manufacturers come to us with an observant mind, with the observa- tions that follow tinctured by that tbrewd business instinct is credited to go roth those embarked on the occupations they are engaged 111. It la to be trusted that what they will tee in this city, and in tbe, West es a whole, will serve to bring them to see the necessity of bridging the great distances that separate the West from the Ens'! of Canada by mak- ing it possible to establish here what needs time and expense in traas- .portation lo bring to'orir doors. In 'this a mutual benefit will be conferred. "Further it is to be hoped that the natural resources, and the oppor- tunities for using them locally, will appear to them the. means of solving an economic problem which they are in a position to do. have their great part In the social scheme. To them we are indebted for many of the comforts of every day existence. In this spirit we welcome our visitors, with the wiih that the factor of enterprise so essen- tial to industry, and which means dfr- velopment, will find scope for that de- velopment in the opportunities here that will be brought to their notice.
