We have at the present time the spectacle of two great opposing forces-Capital and Labor. Silently and swiftly they are massing their forces, and tbe battle mast be fought.

SIB,-As the ptrat and approaches to the crossing of the Thompson Hirer at Long reach are now nearing completion, I will ask yon to grant me space to put a proposal (which will, I trust, meet with their approval and support) before local residents.
