Got to Have Them Now (Pincher Creek Echo.) After all, it's better to liave those politicians talking by the day down at Ottawa, even if it does cost the country several cents a word, than to have them gabbing around the West during harvest. The Naval Defence Report ANYTHING is the reasons for vanted to show 'judgments in a spirit of loyalty and the might and [attachment as to what should ibe for potency of thia far-Clung Empire of ours, it may be seen In the spirit of the Naval Defence report laid on tho table .-by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. While fully expressing the Imperial sentiment, and emphasizing the auth- ority of the. British Crown, the reser- vations as to self-control are the very evidences of the individual the mutual good. What is true of an individual Is true of a nation, for what is a nation but a collection of individuals, -breathing the same spirit, and united by common ties. The young nations within the Empire are not sheep following; a bell-wether. That Is, -by no means, the spirit by which the Empire is governed. Men strength, which Is the secret of the talk of the federation of the Empire, nnd what stronger lines can there be than It great individnsl power of the Mistress of the Seven Sens. It is the strength of the pillars which lend stability to a solid fabric, Tho young Dominions have come to realize that they are no longer infants in. swaddling clothes but have a power and weight which can 'he materialized for upholding the Umpire. They are conscious of a which will allow them to act jo? disloyalty or self-aggrandisement, for accomplishing that object those -laid down in the report, the germ for creating individual naval strength to serve as a protection for the well-being: of the whole. We are, for the moment, concerned with the spirit of the lines laid down. To thooe who see in them any suspicion In their own way for the consolidation of the( whole .and preservingUhe strength of each unit. It Is the freedom of allowing its young scions to carve out their own destiny that has made our Empire what it is. Mutual confidence and trust have cemented Ita several parts, and if freedom of action is claimed and allowed, it is simply the acknow- ledgment that anch action is for the benefit of the whole. What would bo said of (he mem- bers of a family which should be called upon to acquiesce-in the action of their parents, whether right or it is sufficient to point out to them how in recent times the sons- of the Empire have rallied round the Moth- er in her momenta of stress and need, rendering a greater power to that help in the fact that they were not coerced, but were using their judgment in upholding a cause which they con- sidered just, and right. Suspicions of this sort are a slur on our nationhood. Speaking of our own Dominion what Canada was she will be. She can ever 'be relied on to take jier place support the Empire, of which she an Integral part; when the causes of freedom, truth and justice are con- Don't Like Hard Work (Pincher Creek Echo.)

Peck, of Peterboro, is the Con- servative candidate for Peterboro West His law partner, r. D. Kerr, is tho Liberal candidate for Peterboro East This Is no more remarkable, however, than the fact that Dr. Godfrey was mem- ber of the Legislature in the Conser- vative interest, while his brother, the well-known Toronto barrister, was contesting a riding ns Liberal candi- date. Gladstone and his brother sat on opposite sides .0 fine House, and the Hon. Neil Primrose, son of of Lord Rosebery is a radical. The Knock Answered (Life.) Opportunity knocked once at the man's door. To the surprise of Opportunity, the man appeared and said: I don't want any mining stock, and don't want to invest in any bamboo plantations, and I don't, want to buy a sand plant in Arizona, and I don't want any Belgian hares or squab arms, or mushroom cellars, "But, my dear Opportunity in- errupted, "I do not bring you any such offers. I am only here to show the way to. rivet yourself to the good Job you are now holding." Whereupon the man invited Oppor- tunity in. wrong, instead of uafng; their own jcerned. OUR POINT OF VIEW Boost reciprocity. Laurier and more markets. Reciprocity is the farmer's friend. Reciprocity spells opportunity. A penny for your thoughts, Mr. Her- ron. A vote for Uacrath it a vote for restricted markets for your goods. Swat the anti-reciprocity mos- quito 'before he stings the country. ITerron is of uncertain mind. Seo ttiat there Is no uncertainty about his defeat. Another member in this riding would look good to the electors. Whose fault Is It? Prominent English statesmen say re clproclty will pass. The result can be plainly seen even at mat distance.

B. C. In.Line (Winnipeg Tribune) Practically, without exception, ev- ery independent Journal in Canada is out in strong support of the recipro- city pact. Many of these journals, on the general record of the Lnurler government, would be favorable to a cbange In the administration at Ot- tawa, but with trade restriction, lim- iting the markets of our farmers and hampering them In their operations as the policy enunciated by Mr. Bor- den, they are agreed that It would be disastrous to Canada if the Conser- vative leader came into office to put into force his narrow ideas with re- to trade and commerce. In Vancouver, tbe Sunset, an Independ- ent journal, sneaks vary plainly on Mr. Bordeii's 'course. Its position la fairly stated In reference to one of Mr. llordeii's touring nontenants. "It n pity." saye the Sunset, "that a man of Col.

But today tho grer Conservative party has got uervi and is seeing goblins In every era of cabbage or sack of potatoes or ca load of coal which will cross th boundary lino under reciprocity, an every goblin is trying to get Canad The goblin argument may do for som people, but Col. Clark has doubtles discovered that It.doesn't scare th people of British Columbia. "As a matter of fact British Colum bla traded north and south loug b fore Confederation because thcra wa nowhere else to trade, yet Britis Columbia never swerved from its loj ally to either Canada of the Britis Umpire. British Columbia wa. annexed by the United States an more than England has been annexec Germany .whose best customer sh la. "Then again, when it comes dow; to the practical issues involved ii reciprocity, British Columbia stand to gain more and lose less than an) other portion-of Canada because Brit ish Columbia is the one province tha does not produce enough foodstuff! to support the population, nor a sur plus of any that might be exchanged for others. So if reciprocity will re duce the prices of these commodities British Columbia will ho the big gainer for there are one hundred consumers in British Columbia for every producer. "But the producer in British Co lumbia has nothing to fear from re ciprocity because the local demanc will always remain-good and the mar- ket must be permanent. "It Col. Clark will leave -British Columbia with hope renewed and gloom dispelled from his mind It will the advantage of the province, for he travels and commands attention wbereven he speaks. Brit- ish Columbia place to come when one has a .touch of political blues. Only such hopeless cases as those of Geo. K Cowan, M.P., and J. Taylor, M.P., are beyond the reach of the cheerful optimism that per- vades the atmosphere of British Co- lumbia. Col. Hugh" Clark after his. visit in British "Columbia should go' back to Ontario with a smile on hs lips and no fear-in his heart, if he will but read the signs and absorb the spirit of courage which pervades the people of this piunnce. There is no fear of annexation, trade diver- sion to the north and south lines, nor any other of reciprocity British Columbia. He will find the people of British Columbia will wel- come reciprocity and if the Liberal party will awake from its present hibernation and get busy, he will lenrn after the next election that at. least eighty per cent, of British Co- lumbia's delegation will go to Ottawa to support tbe measure. Be of good cheer, Colonel, and when you get 'back to Ontario you can tell your constituents in Centre Bruce that there is a province out on the Pacific coast that isn't scared of reciprocity and can't be bluffed by and middle straight draw In -the games of trade, politics, where blufflug is sometimes done." Everywhere Jlr. Borden is; under fire .for his cheap estimates of the Canadian people. He does not ap- pear to realize .the seriousness of the charge 'virtually made against Canadians that if they are allowed to begin freely buying and selling farm produce, the outcome will he the political absorption of Canada by the United States. Of course Mr. Borden views with apprehension the possibility of further But if reciprocity is, according to his view going to prove so very disastrous to Canadians, he should not worry over further extension.
