T THIS SEASON' of the year, after the prairies have been ex- posed to the pelting rays of the summer sun, it is timely that word of warning shpuld be raised with reference io prairie fires, ore than ever should precautions he taken to guard against any ulbrvak. Smouldering fires left from the burning of straw ipuld be carefully watched. Where any burning is done it lould be seen thai there is a clear zone to allow of perfect safety, id to prevent a wandering spark from finding material ration. That even- attempt lo safeguard against anything in the way an outbreak of prairie fire is imperative is demonstrated by .c'ease With which fires can spread at'the present time. The cent flare where a wide area was devaslated and much damage me is a case in point. With granaries stocked Hie prevalence of a prairie fire at is season would spell disaster to many a farmer who has galh- :d in the fruits of his labor. Even1 individual-farmer should isc the responsibility placed on him to see that a margin of 'ety is allowed, and no loophole given for the starting'of z gration. Me will be considering not only himself, but ighboring community. If ever vigilance is required how is the time when.il shouk vc full play. Carelessness will be a crime. tarilT ou finished hardware, which ranges from to 35 per cent., is sufficient to provide ample protection to Canadian iu- duslries. "Ju the interests of the country at large, I do n6t favor any increase in the protection at present afforded the base products of iron and said he. Col. Miller slated (but considerable of Ihe steel used by his firm was purchased from Canadian manufactories, mid be hail been surprised to learu that they were not prospering under tho j-present turilV regulations. "1 have always entertained the opinion that tiicy were gelling very he snid. Poison Iron Works manufactures boilers, aud is called upon to meet the c-ompelitioh of industries in the Slates whose plants are larger, and which specialize on this one product, said Col. Miller, yet he would not feel justified in asking for more prblcc- (ion against their American competitors, as there is riovV a suHic-j ieutly high tariff to provide ample opportunity for them lo con- duct a paying business. From men who know whcrMf they ore speaking it is evi- dent that under Ihe existing taritV Canadian steel industries are amply protected. This is further accentuated by the existence of the snti-duiiiping clause with regard to steel rods used in the manufacture of nails aiii! imported nominally free. This clause [prevents their being bought nt less price than prevails on the home market and, as Mr. Rowland remarked, was virtually mi important measure of protection to the rod-p.roilueers. In hothouse language high tariff tends to "forcing." Anil we may well borrow Mr. Howland's views on the matter, for they have much of the wisdom of commorr-sense hi them. Better than causing industries which have not the facilities equal to those of foreign industries to turn oul their product at the expense of a high a much higher price frprii con- sumers throughout the Dominion, he believed would be to allow the country lo benefit.by the lower prices which the facilities afi'orded by other countries for doing the.work .afford.. Then, when the supply frOtri these sources is exhaiisledat would come as Canada's supreme opportunity to develop her resources at the greatest possible advantage. In the meantime the Dominion would have reaped the full benefit of (he lowest pric4e available. To those who complain that the steel industry in this country- is not flourishing through want of adequate protection we may commend Mr. Mace's views. He said the prevailing money strin-. gency has affected the sleel trade lo a greater degree than other lines of business, since it is conducted on a strictly cash basis, and to this c'bridilioii of affairs may be'attributed reports of emr barrassinent occurring to Canadian steel industries at the present 39th ANNUAL CONVENTION OF TRADES AND LAI50K CONGRESS AT .MONTREAL the THE STEEL INDUSTRY AND PROTECTION.

These men were not only emphatic in prc- ing against any suggestion for an increased larifT on slcel but argued that any such increase would be an unwarrant- injustice lo the country at large.
