The .Canadian Manufacturers' Association are preparing io draw the 'attention of Premier Borden to the fact that they would oppose any fur- ther preference to Great Britain.

With regard .to the pre- ference, it looks as if i.tie concurrence of the representative? of the Overseas Dominions nt the Imperial Conference' as to its benefits, will not have much effect so far as Canada Is concerned. present administration, are like the tentacles of the marine monster, and will hold it in their grasp.

The Herald has "already out- lined its suggestion as io the best way to -provide for this insurance. If quarter section, of land, wheth- er- cultivated or not, paid a small amount annually, there would be suf- ficient to pay an amount worth while, say per acre, when the crop is harled out. As U is now, the amount of insurance paid is hardly worth white going fo the bother of getting insured for. But If every quaiter sec- tion were taxed for hail insurance, then there wpuld be -no necessity to take out any Insurance papers or pay any -premiums. If the taxes were paid along with the oth'ar .taxes the authorities aware that the crop had been damaged or destroyed by hail, and have the authorities pay over th-o insurance. This system not only would be eas- ily worked, -being really automatic in its action, b.ut it would be eminently fair. Tire owners of u-ncultivated land, in measure, enjoy the profits from the cultivation of land in their neighbor- hood, and Its is only right that they should bear their share of the burden of taxation. hind is cul- tivated someone else will be helping to pay their loss should the hail strike them. Calgary Stung CALGARY awakes from its dreams of great prosperity ay n result of the decision of the Canadian Pacific Railway dir- ectors to'place the Western carahops there, only to find that it has been. At a meeting of the Calgary City Council yesterday, F. W. Peters, who is the newly appointed' right hand man of the Western Vice-Presi- dent, .and just come from headquart- ers at Montreal, announced, to the Council that in return for locating the there, the company would ask the city to sign a perpetual ag- grcemeiit binding- its'alt'to bear 1 he cost of all subways and all 'level prd overhead crossings for all time to come i To the average intelligent man, that demand more or less than a deliberate hold-tip. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, in his report to the directors- of the company, said that the location of Calgary wag from the standpoint of economy and management. If that is the case, why does the company come along now and try to, hold up '.he city for what will'amount to ;is much as ihe benefit they will shops there? get from having the Such-an aqtion by any company is an outrage that should not be tolerat- ed .either by law or public opinion. The City Council and the people of Calgary would be justified in telling the compagiy to their shops and put them some place where tue peo- ple are willing to hand over the whole city to the company. The demand of the C.P.R. on Calgary can hardly be estimated, but it will mean an expend- "ture of from a hundred thousand to five hundred thousand dollars a year. Even half, that amount would he an .ini-easonable -toll to pay for having the shops located in the city. The law" should prohibit such hold- ipa by any company. If the C. P. R. .hink-it is to their advantage to lo-j cate their. shops in Calgary, they should do ap for their own sakes, aud if they want to be bribed to locate them they should have named their price before they announced what they were going to do. Their action towards Calgary -will be resent- ed not paly ,by. Calgary, but by every selfTrespecLing communiCy, The strongest public censure of the com- pany' is the least of the punishments it deserves for adopting such tactics Leave-Taking of Laurler (Hamilton Herald, Ind.) H would be untrue, as well as .un- to say that nothing in can- nectfon with Sir Wilfrid Laurfer's pre- miership of Camilla became him so well as the leaving of it. And yet his of taking leave of his high office was eminently becoming. Sum monhig; the privy council clerks, he addressed to them a ,few graceful words of thanks and appreciation of their services and promised to do what he could to promote their wel- fare. After a few cheery words of parting to tbe --newspaper men, he drove along to Kictau. Hall to place his resignation hi the bunds of the governor-general, and to recommend, his Excellency to call upon Mr. Bor-. den to undertake tire formation of a ministry. The last hour of Sir frid'a premiership was marked by che dignified simplicity, the 'uffaffect- ed grace of word and demeanor, the cheerfulness antl kindness, which dur- ing the last fifteen years have endear- ed him to many of his political foes as well as to .his The Turn of the Fifties (.Montreal Herald.)
