I WINNIPEG, March hundred million dollars is now invested in the meat packing industry in Canada. This is shown in a pre' liminary report for the calendar i year 1919, just issued by the lnion Bureau of Statistics. This re; port shows that the industry, which a comparatively short time ago was very small and which is still in its infancy, provides employment for more than 13.000 workers and pays out more than $15,000,000 in wages. While the industry is largest in Ontario, settlement of the agricultural sections along the Canadian National Railways in the West given the Province of Alberta second position.

They say the crossing at Porter is a veritable death trap.

A water tank is located at the derail side of the Michigan Central tracks and at the time of the wreck a freight locomotive was taking water, and its smoke made the signals difficult to aee.
