A high lii-cnsu and still provisions for iiho admiiiisiratbiu of the law will do more for temperance end morality than even temperance, people imagine.

Mr. tlrcenwood is u Cnnudiun. a native of Whitby. Out . ami the "Canada," a pa|>er published in London, Kng . reports n spis-eh he made recejitly in that city us follows: Mr. Ureeiiwood. who made tho ImppieM. of ibuirmen, in proposing the toast" "Canada," illustrated his remarks with humorous stories of tit" west, and of politics in 'England, which evoked ti stream of witty sullies from every ipiueter of the room. He went in for "yarns," he declared, in spite of the warnings of that grand Liberal, the late Sir William llnrcoiirt. wiio once said to him. "Mr. lireotiwood. don't toll yarns. they'll be your ruin, as ihey have been mine." His reply had been. "Sir William, you're a grand old ruin, unit I should ilka to lie one of the sumo kind." (Luughter.) Mr. (ireenwood, in the course of his s|K�>ch, announced thut it was the intention of Downing Street to deal with tho following quest ions in which Canada was particularly interested: 1. To remove the embargo on Cunodiun cattle, U. Legalise, marriage with a deceased wife's'bister, and 'to B, Lower tho postal rates un magazine and other literature try. The ranchers we have met sny the cattle are In fine condition; never iH'ller. On" of the Dakota settlers who was here last week, said the oppor tunities for farming here were uncX' celled.

Get up pamphlet telling about the success of our farmers. Let men like Messrs Whitney.

Tho only thing we have'nt got is a street railway, and we will have that when wc need it. It makes one tired to hour eastern jM-ople talk about tho drawbacks' of life in the west.
