"Sir Robert states definitely that there will be introduced such measures of Income taxation and excess profit eon fiacatlon as will guarantee full social Justice throughout the Dominion. "Already the union government has given evidence that it proposes to carry out all its platform pledges. With so much' accomplished the peo pie should have no difficulty in believing that, it is in earnest and that it will perform everything it has prom Ised." VANCOUVER SUN Vancouver, Nov. 12.-The Vancou ver Sun flays editorially: "The sincere spirit of this second manifesto of unionism will be felt by all. "It is pervaded with sincere aspirations after a better system of government and will be emln,6ntly satisfactory tto Canadians who wish patronage thrown aside until the end of the war. "The premier reiterates his promises of non-partisan organization � for war and his declaration provides further evidence that the art of statesman ship has really superseded the art of politics at Ottawa." VANCOUVER WORLD Vancouver, Nov. 12.-The Vancouver World says: "Being in the war, what is' Canada's duty? It Is to prose cute it to the utmost. How is that to be done? By words and promises (jr by deeds? Conscription of men is already in force, conscription of wealth and the mobilization of the whole Dominion for war are pledged by the union cabinet. On the other hand the opposition outlines no policy on these essentials, save that of a begging and praying crusade to men who have already shown that no beseech-I ing avails." Manitoba Free Press Winnipeg, Nov. 13.-Commenting 1 edItoHally on Sir Robert Borden's sec-, ond manifesto, issued yesterday, the Manitoba Free Press today says: "Among the national documents lof the Canadian people the manifesto will take the highest rank. The spirit ; of true patriotism untainted by any 1 strain of political exp(?diency, raised ; It far above the level of ordinary preelection statements. Sympathy with ' the cause of democracy and with the I trials of those who are engaged in the struggle to uphold it stamps the premier's message; uppnlt the hill mark of aince^-ity' is plain .to be tjeen by all but' those who,by^w111 or teiiap6rament are blind to its true complexion."

Daily Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 12.-An increase of over fifty per cent, in the already, huge quantity of grain being carried by the Canadian railways from Winnipeg to the head of the lakes, is expected in local railway circles. In response to representations made by the. government, the railways are to make special efforts to place a maximum amount of grain at the lake elevators before navigation closes In December. One of the companies has turned over a large number of box cars to another company which was short of this type of equipment, so that all three transcontlnentals will now be able to handle the special service required in the coming weeks, it is expected that in place of the usual million bushels a day schedule there win now be at least one and a half million bushels of grain moved between Winnipeg and Fort William and Port Arthur. This means an addition of at least three hundred and twelve cars or nine trains a day each way, including the empties. Should milling companies raise objections, on the grounds that the wheat will leave the west so rapidly as to jeopardize the supply from the flour trade, their objection will pro'bably be dealt with at Ottawa.
