The subjccl of discussion in the House of Commons over ocenn freight rales is an Hem which is of considerable interest lo tht Dominion and particularly lo the prairie provinces. Carry- ing charges appear to have risen insidiously, and, from Ihe fig- ures cited, have reached an alarming slate of progressive-ness. The point comes home is that these rates have tended lo niillif'- Ihc advanlages derived from the British preference.

A Turf Club properly organized and carried .on fulfils c-xacl- ly, though on different lints, is claimed for Ihe existence of an Automobile Club.
