Opposition to the Taft Preemption and the Outlook for in a adjunct a scheme does not imply that migration is regarded by competent in will never take advantage of the authorities As most satisfactory.,. Present indications show that the Good neighbourhood of the i United a High water Mark of european Muni Sutea we have a bonding agree att Hwd in 1911 is certain to ment with them now for instance exceeded in 1912, while the reports which no on proposes to break.

We indicate a increase of american in Are entirely willing to use the Ameri a migration in 1912 of nearly 30 per can Tawaya the american industries a Roe american Market but we Are not willing to put ourselves in any posit Ion which a might enable american ambition to imperil our political future. The fight was made on reciprocity because was a bargain which put our political Independence in danger. We were against for the same reasons that Roosevelt was for a political reasons. But because we did not propose our Western country to be steadily and fatally drained into the United states As or. Taft so frankly described in his confidential letter to or. Roof Evelt we cannot see in that a reason Why we should not ship our Grain Mican ports when is to dear image to do so. This is the same sort of argument which we were wont r the advocates of reciprocity us Itiat would happen if the decided to wipe out their Tariff against us without waiting by your parliament. The an was of course that if the Ameri were to do that for their own without getting us to pay them Over 1911. The immigration from the United states in october. November and december 1011, showed a gain of 25 per cent Over the same period in 1910. Electing a pre8ident the american method of electing a president is naturally coming in for a lot of criticism just now. In View of recent developments seems to be a poor arrangement for enabling a free people to get its Way. Still ought to be remembered in All fair Ness that even our own method might fail the Yery Point where the american has broken Down. If we had let us say a prime minister like Roosevelt and if he had reigned and forced on his party a successor like Taft and if then he tried to a come backs against the will of nine tenths of the leaders of his own party he would never get As near to his desire As a a Teddy did says the Mon Ureal Star. We have no preliminary party a a primaries which the Plain voters could express their preference tor him1. He would be left to the cold for 4k 4 the Way of Tariff Charity of a sort of perpetual a Una concessions they could not subsequent tonal committee and no other voice by threaten to restore their Tariff when Ould be heard Ali had got accustomed to Pic new we co Lions and so put pressure on us further and fatal reductions la price6 still soaring. The june number of the labor Gazette contains some striking evidence on the present Cost of living. The statistician of the labor department has compiled the wholesale prices of no less than 250 commodities in Canada since 1890. Based on this compilation he has constructed what is known As an a Index number to measure the trend of prices year by year. This a Index number is the expression of the average Price in any one year As a per cent of the average Price level during the ten years 1890-99. has been worked out for individual commodities and then averaged for the whole. In this Way the average Price of these 250 commodities during 1890-99 is expressed by 100 the average in May last year was 126.1 and the average Price in the month just dosed is 135.4 nor does this general average show the situation to be As bad As really is in the Case of some of the foods that we All have to buy. The average general increase is 9 per cent of the prices paid from 1890 to 1899. The increase in the Price of animals and meats is nearly 29 per cent. The increase in the Price of Dairy products is 23 per cent the increase in sugar is 14 per cent the Rise in fuel is ten per cent the increase in fruits and vegetables fresh and canned averages 29 per cent while fresh vegetables have risen Over 100 per cent the increase in fish is ten per cent in boots and shoes is 12 per cent the average is brought Down of Ooms by reductions in some lines but these lines Are not Many. Flesh fish is 2 Points cheaper. Fresh fruits bring Down the average by 06 Points dried fruits Are also lower by eight Par Benl textiles show a decrease of 2 Points on the whole while Cottons Are Points lower than last May Iron and steel and lumber and some other building materials Are the Only a air items that show decreases. The same Story is told by retail prides. A fall seat prices a to quote from the labor Gazette a Are still up Waie especially hog products. Eggs on the whole were still declining but the tendency was upward in cities particularly in Western potatoes continued to Tho Ighut the were reported higher i nine Edca Man Jig of course is equally True that if we had had a Roosevelt he would not live gone Hunting a big game the Apex of his career. There would have been no prejudice against a a third terms to drive him Forth into the wilderness when he had served his country Only seven years. The people could have retained his services As Long As they had desired them. Having once found himself in Possession of the machinery of his party he would have kept but we Are considering the state of affairs which the american people have to Deal with not the conditions which our system would have produced. And if we assume that we had a Roosevelt and he had left office for four years and now wanted to a resume business the old stand our system would Render practically impossible for him to even make a fight where the american system comes nearer to democracy than ours is that under the people can usually make the party nominations. They Are now approaching popular nomination of senators As contrasted with our appointive system a and they will eventually achieve popular nomination of presidents. In our Case we must con Trast the Premier with the president and our premiers fight their Way to the front in the commons. And when we consider the duties of a prime minister we venture to think that ours is the Best system. His store closes Vii v.

Germany on the other hand has been increasing enormously in population. The area comprised in the present pm the great its Poten quite recently from Ottawa was issued a report of a committee of the Senate appointed last february to enquire into the unsatisfactory character of the movement of the population of the Dominion. The basis of the enquiry adopted was a comparison of the figures for the census erf 1911 and the preceding 1855 More than $6,000,000, and 18711 census of 1901& which showed that Between 1901 and 1911 the Rural population of the Dominion increased by 554,436 and the Urban population by no less than 1,278,086.

In fact is asked if the Nimax has not been reached Aheady and if hereafter there not the i Fate of growth.1 vital statistics played in transportation is itself sufficiently suggestive but when is further found that More than the whole increase of the Rural population has taken place in the new provinces West of Lake Superior and that the Urban population in the two great provinces of Quebec and Ontario now considerably exceeds the entire Rural population in those districts the situation is one which Calls for the most serious these figures will be apparent that the movement erf the Rural population to the cities is becoming a serious question not Only in Europe but in Canada.
