THE TARIFF AND THE COST OF LIVING The Calgary News Telegram evi- dently thinks the iariH only provides business a te, revenue; that there is no protection about it, and that if there is. the nadian manufacturer is such an angel that he would not think for a moment of taking advantage of it. How-1 ever, the News Telegram is intalli gent enough to know that a tariff does not mean that the consumers pay the toll to the federal treasury alone. The manufacturer extracts a toll, and the higher the protection the greater the toll that goes into his pocket, and not into the country's treasury at all. When the-government at Ottawa made an all-round increase in the tariff of per cent, supposedly for the pur- pose of raising war revenue, the re-_ suit was the very opposite on certain i law articles.
