A investigation of the marketing of grain would involve the Grain Com mission, and it is ridicu- lous to talk about placing n member or the Grain Commissiou on a special Commission that would bo bound to investigate the body to v.-liich he be- longs, rind for whose actions he is re- sponsible. The demand coming from the gov- cniment members at Ottawa for an inquiry into the marketing of grain it undoubtedly inspired by a desire to turn, the attention of the farmer to some problem other than that ot the tariff, and also to attempt to convince him that his own co-op- erative Orain Companies are manipu- lating the market to his disadvantage. These government supporters must not overlook the fact that the Govern- ment itself Is responsible for the keting conditions which exist in West- era Canada. The Grain Act was emended only a few years ago by} this Government, and it is undnr the! Grain Act that the marketing of grain j Is conducted, and the administration of the Grain Act is directed by a Commission appointed by the Govern- ment. If the farmer suffers from the present system of marketing his grain; if he Is fleeced by the Grain Exchange; and it the Elevator Com- panies are then the fault Is with the Government and the Grain Commission. The Grain Commission appointed by the Government should be well j enough acquainted with all the facts: to act in such a way as to overcome, these evils. It ig merely shifting rn-1 sponaibility to suggest a new Com mission. "run "aiK-tloiis ot XortfiVr't'sU'rii Ontario and now a of tta brunch lines in Ont-' arlo ami Ljuebre.

This proposal is likely to appeal to j the general public: ;is sensible. It willj be hard for them to understand why the Government rejected it. Tho Premier treated it aa a motion of non-confidenca. This was not the view taken by Mr. C'rerar though he opposed the amendment. The Pro- grcssivn party loader claimed that it would be unfair for the business of the Canadian XnUuual Railroad to bo exposed to the public cyo. It would place ita business secrets in thc pos- se.1-: sion of its great competitor, the CaiJiuiifin Pacific Railway. Undoubt- edly that is a good argument, but wo hardly think it will satisfy the people of Canada, who, facing an astounding deficit in ihe operation of tlio govern- ment want to know wholher thesu lailroails am being opGratrd wisely or nnl.
