The opening procee^dlngs were marked by bddresses of welcome to the delegates trom His Excellency the Governor-IB-eneral, and from Sir Robert Borden, liremler. All the British West Indies were represented at the conference, the British government being repre-iented by Lleut.-Col. Amery, parliamentary undersecretary of state for  the colonlee, and Canada oiBcially by Sir George Foster, minister of trade and commerce; Hon. C. C. Ballan-tyne, minister of marine, and Hon. Martin Burrell, minister ot customs. Sir Henry Drayton, minister of finance In also a Canadian delegate, but was unable to be present at the opening. The governor-general, in welcoming the ^delegates to. Canada, remarked on the spirit of competition shown by Various portions of the empire during the war. Now came the question t>f making the future secure. One of Ihe strongest methods which coijld be taken was to make tho empire as ^If-supporting as possible. ' "In this conference," the governor-general said, "the principal subjects of aiscussion will be the relations between the West Indies and the Dominion of Canada and it is not too much, I hope, to ask that the imperial aspect will be steadily kepi lu mind as well and perhaps the after-affects of what is secured at the conrerence may be extended still further, and another step taken in qehieritLnc all portions of the empire by still closer bonds and closer ties." ' A Great Opportunity Sir Robert Borden said the conference was a happy reunion, for many of the delegates were present at the last conference In Ottawa. The opportunity for traiie between the West Indies and Canada was so,obvious that "it strikes me we should be lacking in our duty if we did not take advantage of them." Canada could not grow sugar and bananas with any hope of success; on the other hand, it produced goods ^hich Were needed in the'West Indies.

North, chaplain of the English Church in Moscow, who, on his return from' Russia, declared that the soviet government will fall within six months if the blockade was maintained. Russia Needs Transportation All the talk of what the plans for trade are that the Russians brought with them, is only gossip. One point, however, appears to be accepted, and that is that there is little expectation that Europe - can secure large quantities of supplies from Russia in the near future. It is pointed out that the great work of restoring the Russian railroads must precede any opening of trade on a large scale. Rolling stock and railroad supplies are Russia's first needs and apparently will be the object of the first negotiations. For these supplies, it is believed, the Russian delegates propose to pay with gold from the Russian state banks. Some of the papers characterize this as "stolen gold" and declare that to accept it would be recognition of the soviet as the legitimate government of Russia. The Englishmen who came from Russia with Chaplain North's party express doubt regarding the existence of quantities of grain and other supplies within the soviet domain. They declare that great stocks ot grain in Russia have spoioled and that vast numbers of hides have rotted because of lack of materials and facilities for tanning them. U. S.
