Respectively, For Duty Purposes By Canadian Prees OTTAWA. June 9 The price for duty purposes on cabbages has been fixed at four cents a pound and cauliflowers at eight cents a pound. Instructions to effect are going forward to customs collectors from the department of national revenue today. The object is to protect the Canadian market for Canadian vegetable growers. The new instructions take effect on all such goods purchased after June 10 and in transit after June 11.

The weight of the containers is included in figuring the value. The effect of the new order, it is expected, will be to prevent the dumping of these products from the United States on the Canadian market. Winnipeg citizens will not have to pay more for vegetables because of the duty of four cents a pound on imported cabbages and eight cents on cauliflowers, an nounced from Ottawa today. The effect of the ruling will be to stimulate the market gardening in dustry in the prairie provinces. This is the opinion of the head of one of the largest wholesale vegetables houses in the city, expressed to The Winnipeg Tribune today.

Local market gardenrrs cannot hope to supply all the early Winnipeg trade, he said, but British Columbia can. Indeed, to a largu extent the coast province is already doing so. Will Steady Prices The big advantage to local growers will come in the summer when their crops come In. They will not have to meet the United States competition. The result of this will be to steady prices.

There will be no great glut for two or three weeks and a consequent waste. Prices during that season may be a trifle higher but at that, time the cost of vegetables is so low that the verv little increase will not be felt. There is also a strong probability that Winnipeg market gardeners will be stimulated to try and sup ply an earlier market British Columbia and local growers should be able to supply enough for the early trade so that prices will not be to any appreciable extent greater than at the present time. Will Be No Glut Market gardeners are naturally pleased with the new ruling. Several who discussed it today agreed that their greatest benefit will be the steadying of prices.

They do not expect to get higher nrices. but they feel convinced that the duty on United Stat' a vegetables will result in a steady local demand for their produce. i Voluntary Trip partit'S Deny Holdup Lands One in Cell ULL, Wuc, June 9 A few up the Bank Provinclnle here yesterday, escaping with about J3 000, Joseph St. Louis. 3T, a laborer, walked into the police station.

Living Cost Reduced The employer' case I that foreign competition give them no alternative.

Also, they say that as the cost of living has fallen, moderate reductions in wages will not Involve any lowering of the standard of Ufa because the smaller wages will buy as much as before. The employes, in reply, point to larger output. They assert that in most trades today the efficiency of the workers has markedly Increased.
