R. in view of the new  competition which it is to lcccije fiom the  Grand Trunk Pacific on the north, and the  Great Northern through the V., V. & E. to  the south,,tliat it should have the very best  transportation facilities that can be got so  that the  most  haulage can  be secured at  least cost.    That cannot be obtained by thc  piesent main   line with  its present route  over thc high summits of thc Selkirk and  Rocky Mountains, and thc only way for the  C. P. R. to secure thc same advantages as  its competitors is to make thc present main  line with its unrivalled  mountain  attractions, thc tourist and passenger section, and  make thc Crows Nest and  the  Rcvclstokc-  Lardcau line its main freighting route.

Foster's   peroration   declared  the Liberal   party had   driven   out  of   Canada   one   of   the   be;,t and  bravest of England'!- genera Is.    If  Mr. Foster   will   look up the   f.*ict>-  lie will   find that  Dundonald   wn*-  guilty   oi   gross    insubordination,  . such as would not be   tolerated for  an   instant  in   any  ofliccr   under  him, and   he was   recalled by   the  Conservative government   of  ling  land in disapproval of his conduct.  Mr. Borden condemned Hon. A. G.  Blair's appointment to the Railway  Commission, hut the people of  the  west, who  have met Mr. Blair and  seen his work on the  commission,  recogni/e he is one of the best men  to be  found  for  the position.    If  these    arguments    are   the    only  samples   of  what   the Tory  campaign is going to  he, the leaders of  that  party might as   well stay at  home for   they are  destined to be  relegated to oh'-curity at the polls  J.
