A FOOLISH STATEMENT The Conservative mind naturally turns to the idea of turning a spout from the pu'bllc treasury chest into any constituency that has to undergo an election. Therefore It is that just as soon as Macleod was thrown open due to the lamented death of Us member, Colin Gengc, they bring out talk that Phe Liberals are trying to bribe the constituency to return a Liberal by acclamation in return for having the land titles office for Southern Alberta located there. It is very doubtful if any citizen of Macleod ever thought of trying to get tlie office located at their town and certainly not under the clrcumstauces mentioned. An office like a land titles office is bound to go to the largest place in the district to be served by it, the legal centre and the place where the greatest amount of bu'siness Is done. In the district to be served by the office for Southern Alberta there is no difference of opinion and there never has been any, as to the location of the office. Lethbridge has fathered the movement to get an office In the � -^V^l! ! southern part of the province, it is the largest city in the district and is the recognized business and legal centre of outhern Alberta. So one bad any idea of the land titles office going anywhere else until the fertile Conservative imagination got to work. world. It is one of the brightest and | newsiest papers that comes to the Herald office. Burdett is a live town and has a live newspaper. Theodore Roosevelt is to visit Mie Kaiser. He will have to resurrect his ancestral language in order to carry on a conversation. If the Tofleld branch of the Grand Trunk Pacific gets to Calgary this year, it will be in Lethbridge by the end of next year. There will be something doing in the old town Just about that time. FIELDING'S TRIUMPH Hon. W. S. Fielding is deserving of the thanks and congratulations of the people of Canada on ithe success of the tariff arrangements with the United States. Both countries were in a most difficult position. The United States Congress without thinking of the results wkh the Canadian trade passed itariff regulaitions that automatically worked against itrade with this country by putting the maximum duties on Canadian goods. When It was too late they saw their mistake for the high tariff on Canadian goods would be followed by a surtax levied by the Canadian government on American goods. That meant a tariff war. It did not take the American people long to realize that they would get the worst qf it in such a case The result was that they wanted to crawl out of It by flndlng some excuse for allowing Canada to come under the favored nation class. Canada on the other hand wanted to avoid a tariif war but could not make any advances to the United States on the matter for many reasons, ihey could not admit thait the other countries had any right to govern our trade relations. Canada could stand the war better than the other people, and the situation was th(J work of the latter so it was .ip to them to get out of it tlip host way they could. iT'-'Sident Taft made the advances to the Canadian government and sent a delegation to meet with that government to come to some arrangement and afterwards the president himself met Mr. Fielding. a'he president, without Hhe consent of the Congress, was unable to make any concession to Canada and by the time that the body could act the maximum tariff would come automatically Into effect. That was to be avoided. After his bluff of the FrencH treaty had been called, the president got down to business and asked Mr. Fielding what he would do eo ae to give give him ,Taft, excuse to Issue a proclamation placing Canada tn the favored nation class, unhlGh meant a reduction of bwenty'^ve per cent on all duties. And further he promised that When OongTea� meit ihe would see that additional advantages were given this country as he could not do that himself. The result of the negotlaUons was that Mr. Fielding gave iMr. Taft ]U8t about as little as tie could and give blm any sort of excuse to gen out of the difficulty. ConcesalonA are given on thirteen iartlcleji, none of which are very important and more^er the same reduction applied to the same goods Imported from any otuer coun-try. The toUl value of the goods to wbich the reduced duties apply Is not over five million dollara. In return Canada avoids the tariff war and enjoya the minimum tariff giren to nations wibo bave in turn given the United States a great deal more than Canada baa done. Then in addition, there is the promise of Mr. Taft that additional concessions will be made by Congress in Canada's favor. There might bave been the applause that comes from acts of daring and bravado If Mr. Fielding had refused to make any concessions whatever and told the neighboring country to go ahead with Bhe/r majd-mum tariff If they wanted to. There is no doubt but what they would have injured themselves more than mb. But Canada would bave been Injured too and the greater Injury they received would not make ours any less. The concessions granted amoont to very little and they have been the means of rellevins a very difflcult situation. Ttiey were not offered by Mr, Fielding but were asked for and granted as a favor. Canada is well able to grant to favor etpedally In Tlew of tlie fact that this country is the gainer tHeretoy. CURIOSITY AROUSED .lust wliat there ia tn the information brought out at ine investigation by the commission, regarding the ef-foi-ts of tlie Toronto man, Hawes. to get a quarter of a million dollars or one hundred thousand dollars from J. K. Cernwall to recompense him (or being frozen out of the Great Waterways railway deal, is not apparent just now. But it looks strange that Mr. Cornwall should be willing to pay ten thousand dollars to prevent suit being entered at the time. There may ihave been a danger of the house being stampded but the same danger e.visted when R. B. Bennett attempted to do so "by mmong the charge against Hon. C. W. Cross. If failed and if there is notmnr in the transaction that would make Mr. Cornwall feel justified in giving 'Mr. Hawes any sum of money, be could easily have met Ehe case on the floor of the house and prevented any stampede. It is very evident that Mr. Hawes considered that Cornwall and his associates were making a big haul out of the bonds issued on the Alberta and Great Waterways. 'W|hether this is so or not will or will not justify .Mr. Cornwall paying a sum of money to him to prevent his entering suit at that particular time or any other time. There is a common curiosity between Hawes and the people of Alberta to know what was made on the deal and who made it. From a study of the list of the Am-eriwvn Imports given the reduced tariff rate by Mr. Fielding, It does not are going to suffer by his action. Look are going to suffer by hs action. Look at the list:-Dates, figs, dried prunes and plums, nuts, photographs, chrom-os, paintings, drawings, engravings, prints, maps and charts, soap pow ders. mineral soap, t>erfuraery, hair oil. toothpowders and washes, tableware of China, porcelain, white granite and ironstone, common and color less window glasses, watch movements, leathers further finished than tanned, chamois, feathers, imitations o; flowers, fruits, celluloid manufac ttires, drugs, dyes and chemicals. The duties are not taken off these articles but are put on a par with the duties levied on French goods under the Franco-Canadian treaty. From Other Sanctums No OUR POINT OF VIEW Boyle, too, says be has a lot of cards up his sleeve tliat he does not propose to show until he wants to play them. And now iin>l ttrest. E. C.
