'Minister' means the Minister' of  Public Works or any person authorized by him in writing to exercise  the powers vested in the Minister under  this  Part.  34. ,Where in lhe opinion of 'tho  Minister any highway is liable to  damage through extraordinary traffic, thereon, he may regulate, limit,  or prohibit the use of'the highway  by any person operating or in charge  of the extraordinary traffic, or owning the goods carried thereby or the  vehicles used therein: and every  person knowlingly driving on or lining the highway in contravention of  such regulation, limitation, or prohibition shall be guilty of an offence  against thie Act, and shall be liable.  on summary conviction, to a fine of  not less than fifty dollars nor more  than one hundred dollars: Provided that any person to whom this section might otherwise apply may,  with the approval    of the    Minister,  [enter into an-agreement for the pay-  orient to the Grown of compensation  in respect of the damage or expense  ! which    may, in, the    opinion of the  ' Minister, be caused by the    extraordinary  traffic,  and    thereupon  that  person shall not in    respect of that  ! traffic be subject to any prohibition  oi- penalty prescribed by this section.  | 35.- The Minister may close to  traffic or use any highway at such  time and for such a period of time  and in respect of such classes of  traffic or use as in his opinion may  be necessary for the construction or  protection of any highway or oilier  public  work. j  35a.

"If ice are to build up a self-sustaining  agriculture here at home, the farmer  must be protected from unfair com-  ���������petition from those countries where  agriculture is still being -exploited"���������  President Harding. The very spot chosen  to deli re r this speech���������Minnesota���������shows  tltut/Hurding had the Canadian -North'  Wist  in. mind.  HILE ties of friendship unite Canada and tbo United States, the attitude of Uncle Sara  is that of '[Business First", and Canada cannot and should not hope tor any consideration from  the  United SL.-'.tes  where the interests of the  farmers  and business people  of that country are involved.  Uncle Sam has built the Fordney Tariff directly against Canadian agriculture, and new  additional Tariff proposals are now under consideration to shut out from the United States  Canadian goods of every kind.  These measures are due to the insistence of the American farmer that the United States market shall be retained exclusively for him and that the influx of Canadian farm products into  that country must cease. They are also due to a like insistence of United States manufacturers and workers, who hare seen their country develop tremendously and grow rich under a  Protective Tariff, and who believe that a still further inci-eaae in Tariff is the only  means tff  assuring continued prosperity.  CONTRAST THE ATTITUDE OF THE UNITED STATES LEADERS WITH  THAT OF CANADA'S WO.ULD-RE LEADERS, CRERAR AND KING  Crerar proposes to allow American j������oods lu  enter the Canadian market  free of duty.  King proposes that the present .reasonable  Tariff on the products of tlie American  factory and farm shall be greatly reduced,  and that the home market of the Canadian  farmer and manufacturer alike . shall be  thrown open to our Southern neighbour, in  the face of the United "States Kmerj'ency  tariff, which practically shuts out Canadian  farm products from these markets, and also  in the face of the permanent tariff now under  consideration at Washington, which gives  every promise of being even more drastic  than the Emergency Tariff so far as our  products are concerned.  In view of the attitude of .the United Slati>.v  what folly it is for Crerar and King to propose  throwing open the Canadian market lo a flood  of both agricultural and manufactured products of the" United States when there is not  tin: slightest, possibility of ai.y compensative  advantage to Canada.  Does any sane Canadian believe that Crerar.  or King, hat in hand, could persuade the  United States Government to completely  reverse its Tariff policies and agree to. reciprocal trade in face of American, public demand for a .high protective-Tariff? . .  'J'he p������*ople of the United States conduct their  affairs and protect themselves by the principle that "Business is.business." Why should  Canada do otherwise? ���������; '  Unlike'Crerar'or King, AIEIGREN stands  firm dor a reasonable Tariff to protect all our  industries ��������� those of the farm, the sea, the  mine, the forest, the factory, and -for the  building up,of a bigger and better Canada  through the full development of the home  market. ,     ..
