TELEPHONE 106 as the tariB issue, or that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's action in refusing the mod- est request of the manufac- turers to be allowed to exact ex- tortionate prices from the people of this country is being by Conservative the east: Jfe Winnipeg organ, indeed, to all "appear- has jret to hear of that demand of the' woollen manufacturers. The nearest it 'has'yet able to get to hearing of it is indicated in a few words near the beginning of an editorial in its issue of Saturday last devoted to Mr. Ames in pretty nearly all-of-its different sites of type. .The few words referred to are these: "Industrial Canada in-a recent issue appears, "to have said _ something about of increasing the" duties'-on And to that sub- ject it hastens on to deliver, itself of throbbing language about young Mr. Ames and his magic lantern and his parrott cry Indus- trial-Canada, it says to something." As if Indus- trial. Canada, the' roonthly- publication the-.

Then the workingman paid j a dollar or two more for -his but he got- value for -his money arid he was not to the danger of contracting some filthy cr incurable disease.' _ there is much equally precious, 'that might be quoted, ii there were room. The Winnipeg or- gan's" way of putting it, namely, that "Industrial Canada appears to have said, something about' 'the necessity of increasing the duties on woollens" is indeed chastely simple. These ut- terances of the. official publication ol the Manufacturers' Association have, of course, travelled across ther At- lantic; and are arousing just protests in England: As announced in a ca- ble despatch last Saturday's 'Free Press, the Yorkshire Post refutes "with evidence the "Death -in the Clothing" article _of -Industrial Canada, which it 'denounces as "dishonest hypo-> critical cry." Of course it is a dis-. zhonostjhypocriticai cry; but all the old stock ol cries "of the advocates of Jiigh protection, that "the. foreign- er paysV.the and spT-Iorth, jre played out, and ne w ones have to be thought up. assumption1 of RECOGNITION.OF ALBERTA RED Alberta Red has at last scoured the recognition that it so justly deserves A. copyrof the new act to amend the inapectiod and sale, act, as regards grain, has been, revived and amoug ita proviaioBS are noted-thoaq prbvid for a new grade, namely that of Alberta red winter wheat.- The new grade calls for the No. 1 to weigh at least 62 pounds to the'bushel and shall be of pure' red winter wheat, sound-and clean.
