Sir James Grant Supports Reciprocity ANOTHER- prominent Conserva tire, not dictated to by Mr. Borden and the interests en- dorsei reciprocity. This courageous Conwrvatlve is no leas a personage thin Sir Jimes Grant, of Ottawa. Lat him tell the reason why he be- lieves reciprocity is good for Canada In the following Interview in the Toronto Glooo: "What Is your view of, the reci- procity Sir James was isked hy the Globe. Ited .States, with its distinctive eminent system, and 1 hope they al- ways stay that way. no one in Canada would favor annexation. Then why should they be so appre- hensive about it! "The- United States Is not craving for political union with us, tor we President TaU's own assurance that such' a move is farthest from his thoughts and intentions. My impres- sion Is that when the United States holds out the olive branch we should three great specialists. jnot kick agatnst it. When you think Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. air. Field- J0[ the SignjflCance of a Republic of holding out the hand of ing and 'Hon. Mr. Paterson, have been inquiring: into the commercial condi- tions of this country for the past fif- teen or twenty years, and I think the people who, oppose reciprocity are too quick to jump at conclusions when they announce their stand on the ques tion. .When the three leading men of our country conclude' that freer1 re- lations in between Canada and the United States wOMld be in the interests of Canada, then that is the spundest argument in favor of re- ciprocity. There is" no doubt about it; reciprocity Vill greatly benefit'the "What about .James was asked. Sir "Well, all this talk about political union is nonsense. Canada will ;re- main Canada, with her own protec- tion and methods o'f government, and the United States will remain the .Un- out the hand this country with friendship to people, -there Is no doubt .-bout its tending to help this country Immeasureably. Not only W'H >t help this country materially, but-it will al- so -greatly enhance the Interests of peace. NO one iliould foolish enough to associate reciprocity with annexa- tion. They. Are very-far from being necessary sequences. Canada if she realizes her duty, and she does always be a part of the great British Empire, and- the mere..fact that the United States has by vote of Con- gress expressed Its willingness to get reer r.rade relations with Canada, and the Government of Ottawa is en- deavoring to do its part !n the mutual iegialation, does not in any way mean that annexation will follow." Proof of Fielding's Knowledge W KEN R. L. Borden and his party were touring the West during June and July for the piirpoie of stirring up their party followers in the 'prairie provinces, they tried hard to'make a great deal of capital out of what they termed Fielding's Iguorance of the trade conditions ".between' Canada and the United States when they went to to negotiate the treaty. The statement'was made on the plat- fornTbere by G. H. Perley and reit- erated by R. If.' Borden "that these gentlemen (Meaere.-Fielding and Pat- erion) went to Washington without any! Information to negotiate a treaty with the smartest people in the world." This "and their equally mis leading statement that there is at the present time no mandate for such a treaty formed their staple argu- ments the pact. Such state- ments from a public platform to an intelligent audience composed qf ke.en Western men' proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that If iiithe Is anywhere it Hs ow the other Bide of the fence. And, furthermore, they serve the purpose of proving; that the reason why the Tories oppose reciprocity, of which 81 r> John A. Maedonflld and the Con- servative party were once ardent porters, Js for no otber reason .than that It is now adranced hy the Liber- als, which lo hidebound Tory, is reason enough. Let HR consider for a moment and see. If Hon. W. S. Fielding's, record in the Ottawa Cabinet would lead anyone to believe that he ,as the Minister of Finance of the Dominion of Canada, would pretend1 to go to Washington to negotiate one of the most Important trade treaties ever advanced for the extension of Can- ada's trade, without having at his dis- posal complete information on which to base his negotiations. If Canada's trade prosperity during Liberal rule and Mr. Fielding's regime shows Hint the 'Minister of Finance has a habit of only iaklng good trade natural conclimkm treaties, the which could posaiWy ardTeV! at .hy an unpre- JndJepti mind would be thai in this caw woald also make ft good treaty which couW only be done -by a mar- shalling of and a .careful study pf trade conditions In the two coim- tries: The only question requiring an answer' then is "Has Canada been prosperous under Liberal The answer is .emphatically, "Yes." Compare tlie fourteen years since 189fi under Liberal rule with the four- teen years just preceding that time, when the country was under Conser- vative rule; and see what Canada's trade story :tells. In the fourteen years preceding 18-10. when Con- 1 rvativea, "who claim to be such es- timable critics of trade treaties, were holding the reins of government, the Imports of. Canada increased, how much? Nothing; but they decreased fourteen millions of dollars. The ex- ports from .Canada during that same time showed'what increase? Leas than twenty-five millions of dollars in fourteen. years, so that the total trade Increase in Canada during the last fourteen years of Conservative rule was lees than ten millions of riol- lari.: '_ .Look, now ,on the other side ot the.-'storyJ In the fourteen years since the Liberals began to direct the cl Canada's trade prosperity It might bV added .thitt thwith the'VaUn and cuffs and silk socks, The world isn't dainty and sweet, H .is full hunger and sorrow a.nd.'wpe.
