He said that the government could not pin itself down until it heard from Ottawa, which had been asked to deal with the province lib erally in the matter of railway con struction. He might say definitely that any road which they subsidiéd must build from the mouth of the Fraser to the boundary country and the company must provide for a daily ferry from the mouth of the Fraser and from Vancouver island. He then went into the necessity of an extension of the island, railway and for construction of an all Cana dian route to the Yukon, thus insur ing the trade of the Klondike to the Canadian cities rather than to Seat tle. He said the government is con sidering a proposition to insert a clause in the charter, permitting the acquirement of the road after a term of years on certain terms by the pro vince. Further, they would compel any company which obtained a char ter to sign an agreement to the ef fect that if the dominion charter were obtained they would still be amenable to the railway laws of the province.

Condition of Growing Grain is Gener ally Favorable. By Associated Press: New York, March 23.—Dun's Re view says of the condition of the win ter wheat crop: Reports from the branches and a large number of correspondents in the winter wheat belt show the condition of the grain growing generally favora ble. In Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois the acreage is reduced owing to partial failure last year and the mild winter In some sections has been unfavorable. Fears are expressed in some quarters that the Hessian fly will be serious, and especially if the present dry weather continues. In scattered sections of Illinois, Ken tucky and Tennessee the grain was winter killed and farmers are plowing it under. Dry weather during the fall months did much damage in Ken tucky and ln Tennesee, the change able weather of the early winter and the lack of rain causing considerable injury. In Illinois the wet weather is now helping grain, and it is hoped that a continuation will enable the grain to outgrow the fly. In Michigan the acreage Is less than last year, but the grain wintered well and damage by the fly will not materially reduce the crop. The best reports come from the southwest. In Missouri the grain has wintered well and a large yield is expected. In Kansas, Okla homa and the panhandle of Texas there is considerable increase in acre age and thé condition of the grain was never better. Wet weather has prevented damage by the fly. In other parts of Texas tbe acreage has been reduced, the grain wintered well but ravage by insects is feared. Medicine Hat, where we suppose all the cold comes from, is a smart town and is making an offer of ten years exemption from taxes to all manufac turing plants. It also offers free water from the public water works.
