SCOTT HAS SPLENDID IDEA WANTS WESTERN PROVINCES TO GET TOGETHER AND BOOST .INTERPROVINCIAL TRADE In-ierprovindal trade between Brl. tish Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba is the text of "W. K. Scott's talk to all visitors from these provinces now in the city. Mr, Scott, who is deputy-minister of agriculture for British Columbia, thinks thai never have these four pro- vlnces hatl such an opportunity to gat together on a propaganda for thalr own good as this one. Kepresenta- tives of the governments and 'hun- dreds of farmers are hero from each province, and before they go home there promises to be one rousing meet- ing when they 'will all get together to map out some plan for an Increase oE inter-provincial trade, which work wonders in the development of the West in the next few years. "These said Mr. Scott to the Herald, "show what each prov- ince can raise. We have the fruit, and the minerals, and the lumber, and the fisheries. The .prairie provinces have the grain and farm produce which WQ cannot grow extensively. Why, then, should not the four provinces inter- change? Why should it be necessary for the people of Alberta and Saskat- chewan to bring in their fruit and lum ber from the United States, and why should we have to ship in our grain aud flour from the United States? There Is no reason for this. It is the case, simply because the four prov- inces have not come to some under- standing 'which will overcome 'this ob- jectionaible feature of our trade, I hone hefcro this Congress ends that the governments through their repre- sentatives here will come together In a. way -which will result In a develop- ment in the next few years such as none of us has as yet dreamed of." The local Board of Trade is taking the matter up and. will try to arrange for such a tomorrow. Industrial Accidents New Wesleyan Central Hall, which has been formally opened at West- mlnsjer.
