He expresses a fear that Ihjs measure will mean ruin to Can- ada's resources. Is this the same Clifford Sifton whom the Conserva- tives were charging with all sorts of Bins against the public welfare in the elections of'1905? At that, time lie was charged with having no respect for the public do- main. It was alleged that his regard for the resources, of the country was so slight that he treeiy handed over timber lands to his friends, without any consideration for the public. Now. the Tories are going to ac- cept the assistance of '.Mr. Sifton, who will try and convince the people that reciprocity means the loss of our great resources. Will the Tories kindly announce In advance that this is the same awful Mr. Sifton, who three years ago, had no regard for our heritage?

His uncle, a candy vendor, helped him to a Montre- al school. Demetrius paid most of mlcux regime. Remember, also. Mr. Lemieilx followed Sir William Mulock one of the wisest administrators that ever drew an inadequate salary on Parliament J-llll. the last fortnight, Mr. Lcm- ieu.x announced nil curly redaction in cable rates. Twenty-five cenis, the present general rate for urgent mes- sages; twelve cents for non-urgent messages: and six cents for press messages. This has been offered to the British and Canadian Postmasters General, but they hope to do better. If the present companies will not give further reductions, then a British cable will be built from Can- ada to Great Britain. During the same period, llr. Lom- leux has announced that a new par- cels post system is being considered, and th'lt it the country merchants did not'object too strongly, it might be adopted. Such a system is sorely needed to make the express compan- ies more reasonable. There should competition, and the post office I POINTED PARAGRAPHS (Chicago News.)

The one desire is for .the ac- [can 'be tutu calmly discussed. M A Tory Paper's Rebuke IOST of the Conservative news- papers are-trying to make the people believe that Sir Wil- frid Laurier, in the reciprocity ag- reement, deliberately pet [about to betray this sacrifice its interests to the United States. There ia a little honesty left In the Tory press, however.. The Daily address which he has made since he returned to Canada, Sir Wilfrid reaffirmed his belief in reciprocity, and reiterated his inten- tion of securing ratification Tor the pending proposals from the federal government. H is useless for his op- ponents to impute to him improper ions popular. As for tho country merchant, his ear is groundless. Interiirban rail- vays wore once thought to seal the loom of the country merchant along iiese lines. B very-body would go into he "city to simp. Instead ot jailing country merchant, it doubled his msiness. The customer has, no ,.ic- ount in the city, and the country merchant has, therefore, the country merchant telephones In his order and he goods are ready for the custom- er in a few hours. It would .be the ame with a parcels post. If iMr. Lemieux will push these two reforms a little faster even, he will ind a solid public opinion behind him. Province of' Vancouver cannot be ac- in advocating this measure. of any solicitude of a partisan char- acter for the repute of the Premier himself. But to its credit it makes protest against the conscienceless imputation to Sir Wilfrid un- worthy'motive, wbici seems to be the favorite or only argument of some of the papers on that side of the reci- procity Question. In this age it should hardly -be necessary to assert the pro- position that one man may disagree with another touching a matter of public policy without being governed by a treasonable' disposition. The Province, however, very correct fy judges it to :be necessary to not only restate this common maxim but, to put It in the form of a reproof, as follows: some of them do. There is no rea- son in the world why Sir Wilfrid should not be honestly convinced that the freedom of intercourse which Mr. Fielding's agreement provides for with the United States Wuld be the best for this country. There are many quite good" citizens who take jlie same view aud who do not ex- pecUto secure any benefits from such a reciprocal arrangement in which the country at large does not share. And if he ia sincerely convinced that it would be to Canada's interest to have free interchange of natural pro- ducts with out neighbors across the border, Sir Wilfrid is perfectly en- titled to seek to' have such an ar- rangement approved by parliament and carried into effect.1 OUR POINT OF VIEW Clifford Sifton will bo the white- haired boy'amongst the Tories now. Two markets are better than one is the Liberal policy. It Isn't annexation the Tories fear. they arc afraid ot ia the big interests will he hit. Clifford Sifton and the Tories would rather our grain should rot up- on the ground than that it Rlioiild find another market next door to us. Haultaiu was n hero amongst the Conservatives a few months ago, hut, since he has favored reciprocity and disobeyed orders lie Is in the party's bad books. In 1908 Conservatives threw mud at Clifford Sifton, charging that he had allowed the country's resour- ces to be given my. Now they will him on the hack'because he nays reciprocity It going; to rob ui of our matural resources. The Tory party wanted an election anil now that they ive got it they arc trying to hedge the issue. There la no satisfying people. But there is a reason The parliamentary recess showed the Tories that.the country wants reci- procity. The Hamilton Herald, an independ- ent newspaper, alluding to the Con- servative policy on reciprocity, putt the matter in a nutshell when it saya: "Admitted that the agreement is only an experiment and that the advan- tages claimed for it by its friends may turn out to be illusory, gurely it ia an experiment worth trying. It is something that the Conservative party, hardly less than the Libcra party, had favored for half a cen tury until a few months ago. Ant does anyone suppose that the Conger vHtlvo party would not now be favor ing It but for tho fact that k Is pro posed by a Liberal government that interest him.
