July 28, 1888  Saturday  Another English Enroachment [*Encroachment]  The sale of the DSS and A to the Canadian Pacific seems to be an assured fact. The interviews with the managers of the deal show that a majority of the stock has been sold to leading men of the Canadian Pacific, which is the only method of "whipping the devil around the stump." And so another valuable American property passes to the h and s of the British, and we must sit down and ab and on all hope of any aid from this line of road in the development of this peninsula. Canuck railroading is not adapted to American ideas of business and as soon as the Canadian  Pacific finally gets its h and  on the property, there will be a constant friction between the management and the would be patrons of the road which bodes ill for the congiguous [*contiguous] country. It is high time that Congress took this matter in h and , and put a stop to ownership of American roads by English corporations. The general offices of the Gr and  Trunk, which has a net work of roads in the lower peninsula, are in London and the oeioke [*people] of Nucgugab [*Michigan] are powerless as against its enroachments [*encroachments] on the rights of the people. This state of affairs also renders nugatory the provisions of the inter-state commerce law, to the damage of American roads and the enrichment of the British corporations.   We believe in protection of every sort against foreign enneachment [*encroachment], and so heartily do we dislike anything pertaining to Engl and  that we should be glad to have her shut out entirely from any business intercourse with this country. The control she lost in the arbitrament of war she is trying to regain with gold, and the watch cry of every true American citizen should be, in unison with the Roman watch word against Carthage, "the English power must be destroyed."
