The decade ol thn eighties was wt>il

not run their course before the people
were twice in incipient rebellion, A

dntnnuds for railways in every direction. It wns not reasonable, bul agitation flourishes luxuriantly in tlm
dry atmosphere "f Manitoba, As settlement progressed���and it progressed
rapidly���the Government and tbe Companies kept abreast of it with railway construction. Often, perhaps,
they were huried beyond a reasonable
pace, but never were they behind
the actual demands of tbe situation,
and never for a moment did tlie voice
nf the agitator cease. Legitimate activity continues, however, and with
what resoltb we .ee. Manitoba can
scarcely be said to be more than fifteen
years old, a mere infant, yet in railways facilities it is .is well equipped
as tbe oldest portions of the Dominion,
This should teach us patience, rather
than incite ns to agitation. We aie too
prune to expect that all the nocommod-

it requires time to tit out a new conn-
