A REBUKE TO A TORONTO PAPER SETS the Toronto News, "has no wealth. It has been strangled by hostile tariffs erected by its un- neighborly neighbors." Quite true, remarks the Saskatoon Phoenix, but is it not strange that the protection? 1st News fails to find in this fact that tariffs are nothing but commercial warfare, which frequently ends in real warfare, Wars and tariffs, declared John Bright, are the great enemies of mankind, and tariffs are not the least of the causes behind the war in rope. Commercial strangulation is but tho prelude to political strangula- tion, and Great Britain is the only na- tion in the world that has disclaimed the latter by avoiding the former. It is doubtful, however, if that lesson of the war will be learned by the na- tions, and certain that the Toronto Ksws will see no lesson in it for Ca- nada.
