"In this matter, the company was  acting in the best of fa'ith in the pub  lie interest, and was absolutely sincere in. its dealings with the'city. Although the site is a valuable one for  railway purposes, the company was  willing to sell it for-the public benefit.  "I wish to say also that the offer  of the site.' never came from thc'C.P.  R. It was selected by; others than-  the. C.P.R. from a number, of sites  which we pointed out were available.

Balkom  DEMAND'A HEAVY  DUTY ON WOOL  Calgary,   De'C.   13.���������The meeting  of  the     Tariff Commission on Saturday  was   an lost   important   session.    The  two questions brought, up,  of       the  greatest import to this section of the  West,   relate, to  the duly on wool, and  a revision  of  the regulations concerning  the admission   of  purebred  cattle  from   the United   States.    The   statutes  of many  states  are  to  the effect  that   the American   authorities   refuse  to  recognize Canadian stock records  and   stud books.    Every   other  nation  jis given an advantage over Canada in  this respect. Canadians have gov-ern-  ernment     regulations     and     records  , which are standard ������nd Canadian au^  imals   are annually   taking  the  first,  prizes   at,   the international   livestock  fair  at Chicago,   but  the  Washington  authorities  refuse. Canada  the  privi-  written and  hang in the halls, giving ,        ������rantwi  all  other  countries     in  purebred   records.    Therefore the cat--  utterance, to  the  fact  that  Wei had died  a heroic death for  Fung Ila  his  country and for his 400,000,000 brethren.  tilemen   of the West   urge   the government to at least retaliate and  insist  on  justice for this great industry.  On the wool duty there was  an extended      discussion.    The  sheep   and  wool   industry   in   the two   provinces  was declared to be on the decline, and  w'.ih certain ruin, before it.   This was  true  even   when   the price  of  wool is  higher throughout ,the world than at  any previous time.  In  Canada 15 cents  per pound     is  the  top  price,  but right across     the  line in Montana- the same wool com-  ���������miands     26   cents,       This   is   an ilevin  that   Mr.   Fielding's   attention     was  called to in a very emphatic manner.  Secretary Peterson of the Board of  Trade says the. duty on wool coming  into Canada is three cents per   lb on  that which'is in the same class with  the  wool  pnxluceel  here;  but  on  other wools  there is no duty.   The pom-  pi a.'nt  was  that  oven   the wool   that  should pay a duty  under the classification is admitted free because     the  law is not enforced.
