development to an eseeplionnl degree.
This Is due in part In the topographical features ol ilia country. Iu a.
country hIiosu surface is rniiipiirutive-
ly level, heavy loads may he transported for mini' distance over wagon
rami]*, but this province is comprised
by n continuous succession of mountains and vulli)., conditions which 1111-
omiili.h'y develop heavy gradei which
render the hauling of wagon loadi aa-
tii-nii ly ihlll'illl uml ut tilbes well nia'l.

There apueara to have been more or
less uniiecossory baste ill conneution
with the early deliveranee ol opinion,
with relerence to the proposal reciprocity   agreement   witb   tbe   United
States. The leading newspapers have
evidently deemed it incumbent .tpon
them to bund out something to 411
oipcctunt public upon thu atrongtb nl
inlormation ol e general character,
while prominent citiiens In politi.vil
and in commercial circles have granted iiiti'iviiaws for purposes nl pulilica-
tion the applicability o( which to the
provision! of tba proposed! agreement
cuniiot Iw gauged until iti er.
plnii terms have been published and discussed. Partisan politician! 'avor or oppose the measure irrespective ol iti stipulations according to party policy while eipon-
ents of different interest! take that
view which ii dictated by their conception ol the effect ol its terms as
tliey at present understand them upon
tUeir commercial or other, interests.
The Dominion is in no danger, bow-
ever ol being pin lifiuiial into an undertaking of a nature so far rouching
as the reciprocity agreement and the
Canadian public can afford to meet
thu situation ipiietly und lo approach
the issue with calm deliberation.
While it muy I'e unfortunate that il is
a party measure nnd muy, therefore,
not be 11. iii'l strictly upon ils merits in the House at Ottawa, it |i nevertheless true that the opposition in
Ihu Hnuse is luflhilently strong and
able to see Ma 1 the progreii nl the
measure is.not marked by undue haste

lirowers' Association which dealt
witb u number of important mutters

With regard to transportation, Ihere
is considerable discussion on llie need
for certain reduction in ralei and certain improvement! in serviie. The As-

asking for the appointment of a strong
transportation committee to deal effectively witb these problems by tbat
