That is not improbable for Can ada is making great gains in wealth and population. We view her prosperity without envy and even with genuine satisfaction, for if no higher motive inspired, that of self-interest would. The greater and more prosperous both Canada and Mexico become the better it will be for us. Take Canada as an illustration. Not only does she buy more of us each succedfng year than she does of England but her trade with us in creases far more rapidly than it does with that country notwith standing Canada gives her the advantage of a preferential tariff. Twenty states of the union have now reduced passenger rates, and the public pays from two cents to two and a half cents a mile. In almost every instance the reduction has resulted in a large increase in travel, just as its advocates said it would. Even the roads now admit it although they assert that the receipts do not equal the expenditure. Pos sibly this may be temporarily true in a few instances, but only tem porarily. In time it will work out alright for past experience con clusively proves that a reasonable reduction under favorably cir cumstances ultimately results in gain, and that the conditions were favorable in the case of the roads effected was seen in their net earnings. The occpation by Japan of the # island of Pratas, within 120 miles of the Phillippines, will give the yellow journals and fire-eating politicians a chance to work up another war scare. We may be sure that our government will safeguard its interests, and in that convictiorf one can .view the matter without getting excited. OF VALUS AFTER ALL.

Mullendore's horses which were driven through from here, sold for the highest price of any that were sold at this sale.
