PUBLIC OWNERSHIP OF THE RAILWAYS, The argument of invidious comparison is the one most frequently used j by those who oppose the government > ownership of railways. They turn to i Uie loss sustained by the British rail- j ways.and the American railways, forgetful that they were run under ab-Bormal cijnditions.Jf the argumeat. of j compariaon holds good then, with' ?qaal. jogjc, the success of the rail-; waya in Germany under government | ownership may be cited. Or again,! If" the prjnclp I of government | ownenbip which is the point at issue what--better argument in the way of compariaon can be pointed to than' the goveniment ownership ol the tele- j grapV'system in Great Britaiu, or to ' the' tel^plione system of this province.' So^cess in the matter of gpTemment iiwnarsiiip in the-tDa.tter of. railways iivide&te certainly count, but service, llkei^et claim* its share of attention.

They pay tribute .to the mannfact-uring concerns that supply thenj raw material, -and they collect the amount of that trfbute and some more, from the consumers of their product," '"Textile manufacturers are protected to the -extent of 32 to 42^2 per cent. Some 3.000 iitdustries in the Dominion are the converters of the products of the cotton and woollen mills into finished garments. They get no free raw ma-� ilertBl. but are 'compelled to pay the group of financiers, who con-tr61 the tifextile manufactures in Canada, the full extent of the protection they receive.

The larger man-ofacturers get their raw product free; jBxceptink war tax. The smaller manufacturers buy their raw material from home industries. Members of the -Wanafactnrers' Association and financiers will no doubt live up to their "slogan" and buy for their personal needs "Canada made goods."

In that raUway de-' velopment is ruled, not in the interest and beuttit ot the country at large, but in the interests of paying as large dividendi as posaible to a very small portion ^f the community, and many of thMoi not residents of the country, nameli^.the shareholders o( the C. P. R. A �U9aET OF OIIEAT EXPECTATION. TBg^cdming Budget is one to which ia att4ch..which far outweighs any ot t^^ Interest which Budgets heretofore have claimed. At no time, ^ J4 the, history of the Dominion has the burden of the struggle ttr existence, with the high cost of^living pressing so heavily, been found'so grievous to bear. There is a call tor a remedy in the fact that pa-tiencei has been taxed to the utmost, and men are in no mood for matters whicij[, vitally interest them to be as they have been political issues. ThsTconaumer has awaked to the tact tiat he is the person most intimately ,';sConcerned and what concvns his w^jtare should not be a question t the welfare of any political party. The Miustment of the tariff the; publlc'-haa come to reallae Is something which will come in the way of reliet though it will not entirely re- i jump from protection to free trade. But, speaking for the people ot the ,West, they look for adjustments which will-remove-partioularly.the handicaps which the present tariff imposes on the industry which is the key industry of the prairie provinces. It will not be too much too say that in its Budget policy the tTnlon Government will stand or fall in the estimation of the people of the West. The people of the West, in the spirit of fair play, expect the burden of taxation to he so adjusted that those most able, and not those least able, can carry the legitimate proportion.

Arthur White, a farmer living a few miles west af Macleod, had the misfortune to see bis bams and stables; in fact, ail his .outbuildings, burned, making a clean sweep of everything but his home, which was .saved by the efforts of his neighbors. Jt is thought that, in_ burning ^ome rubbish arouad the house a light whirl-' wind caught the fire and carried it to the bam. The loss will be about $3,000, with little or no insurance.
