Municipalities was  held behind closed doors in the    ot-  . f ice of Reeve "E. H. Bridgman on  Monday afternoon, during which it  is understood that a number of the  matters which    were recently    taken  , up by the upion, in conference witVs  j he government, were thoroughly di?-  i cussed.    It is learned on    good    au-  ! thority that at least-one of the decis-.  sions arrived at was that the    union  .will take no steps whatever    to seek  i a further interview with the cabincr,  or make any further representations  to it, during the present session.  ] The new source of revenue, which  the government recently proposed to  turn  over to the    municipalities , 't;  I lieu of the unpopular personal property tax, were under discussion, but  when questioned concerning the mat-  . ter, certain members of the executive  refused to state what attitude the  union would-be likely to take towards the proposals. It is certain,  however, that no sugestidns'  offered and -the.-government  left free to make whatever  ments it deems best.

Editor and Proprietor   j*^  Published Every Friday  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1921  "Canada Needs' Meighen". Canada sure needs  some one al this critical lime in her history. It may  bo Meighen and il mav not, hut lhe people ol'Canada  sure should look ahead of lhe present and t'O'Lsider  which of the policies of lhe three leaders will be Uic  best for the country five, ten, twenty or more years  from now. :.  The Crerar policy is nothing more, than a policy  with a lillle sugar-coating "on it 16 please dissalished  Liberals, and undoubtedly is in favor of free trade with  the country lo the south of us.  The present Liberal Leader-says that it was a big  mistake to have defeated the reciprocity treaty of 1911..  The Meighen government wants lo carry out lhe  same old policy of-protection lhal was first placed be-  fnrf> the people of Canada by Sir John A. Macdonald in  1879.  Yoii have vour choice of policies and il you agree  that protection.is the proper thing you will agree that  "Canada Needs Meighen" and if you are in. favor ol a  tree trade policv vou \yill decide otherwise.  We need the policy thai will develop this dominion  of ours during lhe next few years and make a place  for our young men and women so thal'lhey will not  want to leave our country for any other in order lo  make a living���������Canada will he good enough for them.  There must surely be something wrong when our po  pulation has increased, to such a small extent during  the past ten years. The people come and go���������we d.<  not appear to be able to hold them. We need a policy  that will make abundant work in Canada for all lhe  people who wish to make Canada I heir homc--:or in  other words protect our industries and our workh'.en.  Let us vole accordingly..

'and  that its rejection should receiv.  inu condemnation    of the    Canadian  people, and express the earnest hoj>������  for the renewal of such an    arrangement.'  The platform    advocates    an  increase of levenueTrom taxation o>  l.'usines's profits    arid    income.    Tlit  government platform proses that th:-,  tariff shall be/sq adjusted as  (a)  t(  assist in providing   adequate    industries,  (c) to encourage the establish  incut of,now industries;     (d)  to develop our natural (resources, .(e)-u-  prevent  the abuse'.of'the    tariff'To.'  IIih exiiloiuition of.-faie consumer:  (f)  to safeguard the interest of the Caua  flian people in    the    existing    work;  struggle  for commercial and     industrial supremacy. '" .Tlie' platform supports   the  principle ; of   trade  prefer-,  once within the empire.    The Farmer  'platform denounces tlie present, protective tariff and makes what it calls  "definite and tariff 'demands." These  are   Oil   a substantial    all-round  reduction of the customs tariff;  (b) induction  of ihci,  'remaining    tariff <<>  ono-half on   Uritish  goods,-and  su-h  further reductions n's    shall'' ensure  complete  tree   trade, with   Britain   in  five years;     (c)  unrestricted reciprocal   trade'with  the  United States, in  nauirul products;,-' (d) free admission  of all  foodstuffs,  agricultural  Instruments,   . vehicles,      fcrtiliers.     ' coal,  cement,  oils, and  all  raw- 'mat.eriuls  usi d in their..manufacture.    The revenue lost. by. the abolition of customs  duties the farmer, party proposes    : ;i  replace   by a ���������   tax     on     unimproved  lands, taxes, on personal  income, ���������inheritance taxes tind taxes on profit.  The only thing that finally turns  up for the 1'elloTvv'wiio always is wui;-  ing tor.something to turn up, is his  -toas.  ^3  Shall it be that through the destruction of the Tariff as proposed by both Crerar and  King, the development of Canada is to come under the domination of the United  States, to be followed by gradual financial domination and as a consequence, political  domination? .���������������-������������������������������������  Kf-  Is Canada's destiny to be that of a great free nation within the British Empire group  of Nations, developing her boundless resources of mine, river, water power, forest,  and cultivating her millions upon millions of acres of arable land? Is her develop  ment to surpass that of any other nation?  Shall her manufacturing industries develop her minerals and raw materials into implements and goods for the benefit and comfort of her people and for foreign trade?  Shall she become a self-contained nation within the Empire,   her   great   railways  interchanging, the products of factory and farm among- her own people,   and   her  ships sailing every sea?  Shall she maintain her integrity within the Empire and protect her farms and  factories against unfair competition from foreign countries?  IF THIS IS TO BE CANADA'S DESTINY THEN CANADA  NEEDS MEIGHEN.  On December 6th, Canada should once again protect her farms, her factories and her workmen  against the unsound theory of Free Trade, and should hold fast to her reasonable Protective Tariff,  her national entity and her British connection.  On December 6th Canada should declare with no uncertain voice that she will not tolerate the false  trade theories of visionaries and group leaders which tend toward her economic destruction, toward  the separation of her people and the weakening of the ties that bind Canada to the Britid* Empire.  On December 6th Canada should demonstrate unmistakably to the outside world her fixed determination to keep Canada for the Canadians.  On December 6th Canada's destiny is at stake.

WOK  j Members of both tildes of the Legislature are today congratulating, \V.  K. Fsling, the member for RossUmd.  on the success or his single-handi:d  battle against, the Pacific Great Eastern  construction   contract.  The Premier jumped at the ..suggestion emanating from the .delegation of prominent business men  which have waited on him demanding an independent investigation o(  the whole P. G: E. situation, and announced that he would ask President  Beatty of therC. P. R. and D. 13. Manna of the Canadian National system to name a board of competent  investigators.  Mr. Esling has gone on record in  the house" in a series of . specific  charges and members today are ex--  presing the hope that the investigators will take all these factors into  consideration.    '    .  j, , Mr. Esling has    stated,  and    has]  hacked up his charges with evidence  obtained    in    answers Mo    questions  from Premier Oliver    the    following!  facts:    l  Premier At Sea  1-���������-There is no contract in existence between the P. G. E. and Northern Construction Company for thu  building of any portion of the lino,  except the first 42 miles constructed under the Oliver administration.  I 2.���������The contract for this 4 2 miles  1 was to have been completed by .(unitary l, 1919, and although three  years have elapsed, the premier' has  admitted that he does not yet know  what that 42 miles cost.  3.���������No tenders were called for the.  completion of the railway,    but th*  government engineer has simply told  the construction company to continue  ^work from time to time, without the  ; government even having estimates to  ! guide it. '   " -/  4.���������Foley, Welch and Stewart had  agreed with  the late government to  complete the -road to Prince    George  ifor $6,000,000, but Uie    government  .has spent over. $17,000,000    and f>ir  .miles of the railway is yet to be built.  !   . 5.���������The government has placed in  the hands of its engineer, a-   former  official of the    Northern    Construction ' Company,  quantities    and  classifications, a.matter    involving $17,-  000,000 of public money.  Favors Employers  G.���������All correspondence indicates  that this engineer favors his former  employers and that he seems lo l>n  governed hy the'feni; that they will  not. he: protected!' The most striking  instance of this is when the compnnv  requested in .June. 1920, an increas:;  of 3$ per cent, of unit prices, the engineer advised the premier 'thai he  had undertaken on his own responsibility, unasked in writing, even by  lhe company,' to make .this retroactive to tlie first of the. year, hecaiiS'i  he was satisfied previous prices were  too low.  7.���������-hi March, 1920, the premier  stated that, on the order paper tint  the 'road would cost, $4,000,000 io  complete to Port George, a distance  of 130 miles. Since then 70 miles  have.been built at an .expenditure of  $7,000,000.   '  8.���������The 1920 prices for bridge  timber, as fixed by the engineer,  were $84.50, later reduced to $G2 In  1921. The prevailing price at local  millsin 1921 was $20 to' $25 ppr  thousand. The contract involved the  use of the five million feet.  O.U'TUItING   A   NEW   MARKET  Canada's flour is the standard    of  the  world.    This is  pretty generally  admitted.    The writer knows one citizen of the United, States who1, on c*'-  ery visit, he makes to Canada, carries  home, under strict instructions front  his wife; a number o* loaves of bread  she claiming that no bread obtainable .  in (he United States approaches that  made from  Canadian-flour. It. is'in-.  teresting to note that Dr. A. H. Stafford, born in Winnipeg but' for-some 5.  time  past domiciled .in Jamaica,-, re-,  ceritly said that until the steamships'-  "Canadian   Forester" and   '���������Canadian/  Fisher" of the Canadian Government  Merchant   Marine  Service  came,;inlo..

At  the door' of  tho  'station his or her name will be check-  jed on  the list  by one of the ageut3  ���������posted  there.    Then on entering the  | voter  must  give  his  or  her address  'to  the   deputy  returning  officer    or  returning officer or poll clerk, who  will   run   through   the   list   and ��������� see  that the voter is' entitled to a ballot.  That   formality   complied   with,   and  everything being in  order, the voter  will   be   handed  a  ballot  paper 'and  given  instructions as to how it is to  he marked, by the returning officer.  Then he or she  will be    shown to    a  room or compartment   where the ballot  can   be marked  with secrecy.  Ihcn, having marked the ballot as  he or she desires, the voter will return to the outer room, hand the  ballot properly folded to the deputy  returning officer,'who will ^ar oil'  the counterfoil and place the ballot in  the  ballot box.
