explained.   Opposition arguments
were overthrown by this man who

of a workman named Sam Nedich
engaged on Nick Gurvich's contract on Third avenue, hung by
a shred of flesh hist night. Dr. had io complete ilu- amputation.   The linger was useless.
The painful accident occurred
at five p.m. hist night. Nedich
was working wiih the derrick

drawn by a horse in the usual
manner. Just as the horse was
going to move Nedich caught
sight of a kink in the cable which
was going to jam in the pulley.
He- tried to straighten the wire.
The horse started up at the same
moment, and ilu- linger caught
in the worn wire just like a pair
of scissors, chopped through flesh
and snapped the bone before the
horse could be slopped. Dressed
speedily by Dr. Cade* the wound
will heal ill! right.

A ~*
This is a little section ot the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women.   Any and all of the ladiw of I'rince Rupert | pionshlp of C anaela last week,
what Mr. Balfour never doubted, that freedom  sre invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its  discussions.  Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor.   The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
A tariff on foodstuffs means a tax on food. Britain learned that
primary economic fact through sore experience. For this reason no
British Government will dare tax the UkkI of the British people. Sue-h
a proposal was made under the guise of a preference on Canadian
wheat. Its purpose, Mr. Chamberlain saitl, was to build up the Empire
But three times over the* people of Britain refused it. Every Liber. !
and every Radical fought it. Today inside thc L'nionist party itself
it is being strongly opposed and openly abandoned. The younger
men are coming to
to iiii|-K>ri foodstuffs from the widest, the best, and the most convenient
markets is absolutely necessary not only to Britain's commercial
Stability, but also to the very life of the British people. Britain will
not tax her people's food, anel therefore she cannot give* a preference
on Canadian wheat.
An Empire bound together by a tax on the food of the people,
with its millionaires on great estates and its inevitable hungry paupers
in city slum-. i�� an Empire doomed to speedy disruption and hojx-less
decay. And just because the Government and people of Britain
reject that policy of tariff union, and the overseas Prime Mii isten
refuse it. the Briiish Empire t.xlay is a living thing, wiih promise of
life and power and glory more splendid and more enduring than ever
these food-tax jingoes dreamed.
And in Canada of all places this food-tax policy is of all ihings
the most inexcusable. There is for it not even ihe poor excuse of
"protecting and infant industry." Agriculture and dairying and
lumbering and the fisheries are no-, puny infants whining to be- spoonfed. They can protect themselves by the robustness of iheir own
superiority. All they ask is that lhe Government see to it that the
canals .ire adequate, that the railways are efficient and just, and that
tariff obstructions art* taken out of the way. The farmers -corn the
notion that they cannot protect themselves. They mock the at idea
that a tariff can protect the-m. If any Canadian workingman can
buy meat or tlour or cheese or fruit at cheaper prices or of better
quality in the l'nited State?s than he can in Canada the- farmer- will!
not stand in his way. They are quite willing to take their chances
with their products in a market open to thc world.
The food-tax folly is even more foolish -till. L'nde-r the reciprocity
agreement not only would the consumers have all the advanalges
of the choice and quality and price provided by the wide range and
variety of soil and season and climate given by Cod to this American
continent, but there would also Ik- <.|K-retl to the farmers and fishermen
