About Trusts. Boone to Producers. A Canadian's Opinion. We hear much in Australia about the evil influence of Trusts-especially bleef Trusts-which are desrribed a "vamn. pires sncking the blood of the people," and othbr liotribly ghoulish creatures, by Labor party agitators, though thl thief apostle of the Party, Mr W. M. Hughes, says they are a good thing. But though we hear this kind of thing on all sides, we rarely hear a good word to support that of Mr Hughes in favor of there being any redeeming feature at all about Trusts, and., as we know, Mr Hughes beingl a lawtyer, has never the least dill. culty in explaining that though he " said" Trustsi were good for the public, le really "meant" something altogether different. It is quite refreshing then to meet a man in our recent Canadian visitor, 'Mr J. A. Coulson, who descrihes the Beef Trust as the friend, in fact thi snvidur of the Canadian famier and grazier. "Till .. Y; Criflin and Co. enale ilonig." sayis Mr Coulson, "and star...
