That n'esation IB the eccentricity of the argument .put forward !n the Tory iritn regard to effect of reciprocity on the Canad- ian cheese ud butter market. With reference to cheeee we noto the fol- lowing: "Canada ships more cheese into the -British markets than any oth- er country in the world, and it is be- cause of that -great output that prices remain ao high ajid firm In the dairy- Ing districts of our Eastern provin- ces." The statement tacitly concedes that -a Iftfge market tends to preserve the high price of a commodity. The, natural inference muet be then that; the wider the market so much the bet- j tor for the price of the particular commodity. But the fact of making that market wider by adding to it that of the United tales destroys, accord- ing to Hie anti-reciprocity mode of see- ing things, the truth already laid down with all tho certainty of an axiom. Ag- ain It is stated that free trade the United States is golug lo lower the utandard of our abroad. Can- adian reputation by which it has ob- tained bold of the market, will be im- perilled, for, according to the Tory pessimistic theory of reciprocity, the Canadian market would be inundated with' cheese from New Zealand and France. Dealers would take oppor- tunity to 'thip foreign cheese lo Bri- tAin Canadian cheene. Then conies the wall that Canadian would be largely by UnJtod and exported as Canadian and that but poiltfon wo.uld is to say, that the Canadian product in spite of its loss of reputation, will still have an asset as a marketable commodity under another description. If the United States Is going to steal the position of Canada in the British market it can only do so by stealing its reputation. How, then, can this be effected if the standard of Canadian cheese has gone do-wn, and with it its reputation gone? Here is a whirl of perplexity. It Is admitted that Can- adian cheose owes its position to its [iiality. The'position stolen must be through appropriating the quality. It Is maintained that the impost by the United tates is solely for the name of' American cheese. This faces ua with another amazing pro- blem. The Canadian product which owes its enhanced .price to its quality, will be bought for the purpose of be- ing sold 33 American cheese, which obtains a lower price. This is a very curious commercial transaction, to say the least of It. It is a fair specimen of the anti-reciprocity fallacy, with no regard to the intelligence of the peo- ple. It would not take long for ihe average man to see that Canadian cheese meets the cheese of othor coun tries In open competition in the Bri- tish market, and under UJQ fame con- ditions, ami yet maintains its price and ontp.ut. The extended market of the United tateu must be so much the more in favor of this price and output. If Canadian cheese, by Us quality, can hold Its own In the British surely it nothing to fear In Iti own by the threatened of of other countries. so than In Lambton. The price paid j for the cream .twenty-seven cents per pound of butterfat) and the conven- ience of having the product called for has encouraged an increase in the dairy herds, particularly on the part of those whose other farm interests prevented them from making and mar- keting butter in the past, or who were not convenient to a chees.e factory. Hogs are the natural concomitant of the dairy industry, and -especially in a county where the corn yield is so heavy.
