A few days ago Mr. Balfour, in a remarkable speech, announced his conviction that the cure for the evils at present afflicting agricultural industry in these countries, might be found in co-operation. As a preliminary to a discussion of this view, it would be necessary to explain between whom the co-operation is to subsist. Between large landowners and small, or between small landowners amongst themselves, or between landowners and labourers who are not owners of land? Before we can describe a system of co-operation, we must be able to designate the individuals who are to co-operate; and to be able to describe them we must assume as established some system of land tenure, which will determine the condition of the several cooperating parties.
