Everybody associated with the

iiinbia is naturally hopeful that
the return of English capital to the
Province will ere long be assured.
Well we know English investors at
the present moment look askance
at anything appertaining to investment in otir staple industry,
end the reason is not far to seek.
In many instances the blame rests
s My en the shoulders of the iuvos-
tors themselves, for in nine cases out
