ToneNTO, O., Aug. 23. Referring te
President Harrison's proclamation im
posing a tell en vessels passing through
the Sault Stc. Marie canal, the Globe
(liberal) says: "An attempt te strike
this blew at Canadian commerce is
warranted neither by the present atti
tude of our ministers nor by the whole
course of international dealing with
reference te canal and water ways.
Canada's expenditure under this head
has been vastly greater than of her
neighbor. She has borne far mere than
her fair share of the cost of com
pleting the noble system of navigation
from the northwest te the Atlantic,
with the single exception of the rebate,
if that be an exception. She has thrown
her canals open te Americans and
Canadians upon equal terms, while her
shippers have enjoyed no benefit what
ever from the American state canals.
It would be felly te deny that the step
which is te be taken will hurt an Im
portant Canadian interest, but te make
any further concessions in the face of
this threat would be tee great a sacri
fice of our dignity nnd self-respect" t1
The Mall (Independent) says: "Ne
doubt an Intimation from the Ottawa
government that next year the robate
would surely go determined the presi
dent net te resort te an extreme policy.
As It Is, the United States meets our
tell with a like telL As the American tell

go off altogether when our rebate

season, it need net treuble us much.
The difficulty In the shape it has as
sumed is happily net going te lead te
reprisals and te 111 feeling."
The World (conservative) says: "The
president of the United States has, at
the order of congress, closed the Sault
Stc Marie canal te Canadian vessels.
Our ships must pay a tell of twenty

While we have te pay it we wilL We

questions have been settled, but one

its share in teaching the Canadians that
