Tralni. Stick To The Issue RECIPROCITY is the issue and there is no other. The Ctpn- servatlve party Is and Will continue to try to ibring In other side issues to becloud the main ques- tion, but reciprocity is the matter that Is before the people for settle- ment. The Conservative opposition have forced the issue and now they Will have to stick to it. The Toronto Saturday Night, an In- dependent Journal, which has never shown any too much friendship for the Lander Government, in Us last Issue holds to this position with the utmost emphasis, ssying: "We now have a well defined issue before us. Let us stick to it, and not take any sidings between now and the end of September. Investigation Into the alleged questionable actions of a Cabinet Minister will hold over very well, particularly in view of the fact that the charges originated from sources that are none too authentic. Whether the Hon. -Mr. Oliver is or is not guilty may interest a certain cot- erie of small politicians, but the coun- try as a whole does not care a brass farthing about such matters at the moment. The voters of Canada want to know what the majority think re- garding closer .trade relations with the United States, and it Is upon these lines that the discussion should begin and end. It is a clear-cut issue en- ough. It is merely a question wheth- er we are getting along sufficiently well as it is, or whether we should take a chance of doing worse iu an endeavor to do better." This election really amounts to a referendum "on the reciprocity issue. Wlil reciprocal trade relations as pro- posed in the agreement prove benefi- cial to Canada? That is the question and the only question. Where The Blajne Lies WHILE Eastern Conservatives are gloating over the fact that they have cheated the West out of the representation to which it is entitled forcing the el- ection on before the redistribution eeats could he made, it is only in keeping with the Conservative policy of saying one thing to one part of the country and another to a different part, to find Mr. Magrath trying to foist onto the government the respou- li'bility for this state of affairs.. In hla to his nominating conven- tion on Tuesday evening, Mr. Magralh Is quoted by his journalistic support- tr as saying: "Hera Is another point on which I oppose the preient government. They have. ordered an election right in Ihe busiest part of the year. When the voting day comes all the farmers will be busy with their harvest, and will begrudge the time necessary to spent] In "an election. It was not necessary to do this. In two months' time the farmers would have had more time to give to this matter, and the election would 'be no to them. This couid easily be done. The house adjourned for two months In the summer and all the business waited. But they can not n-ait now, and as a result the West- ern farmer is cheated out of his pro- per representation. We had a census a tow ago and according to law the voting districts should divided up (id; new .ones created. This work tikes time, 'but In two months the figures.- could, all be brought down and be followed by re- distribution. now, and an This can not, >oe done result you. are -being OUR POINT OF VIEW "X vote for "Matmth and tha Chin- Koolprocliy means fat pocked eie wall" li taking a chance on Chin- ese stagnation.

The City Council Is doing wisely In beginning to make plans this year for the w'ork to he done next.

The Conservatives are appsallne-to; support for Magrath on tho grounds that he will certainly be a Cabinet minister If Borden. carries the conn try. That Is long chance.

Will Crook's, the noted English La- bor leader and member of Parliament, Is introducing .Into the British Parlift- ment a bill copied from the Umleux _____ I Bill.

Does Ike blood of their fathers still flow through their veins? The American people want our hard wheat because It Is ihetter than what they can produce. The quality always gets the price if it can get the market. Reciprocity will give the Canadian farmers the market, and they will ihe higher price because they have the Setter qualltly, but they get the price In the face of a duty. The Conservative papers are trying to encouyge their party workers by showing that by merely turning the small majorities the Liberals have in twenty-five constituencies, the govern ment' can lie overthrown. But what will the Liberals be doing with the Conservative small majorities in the meantime? There were more Conser- vatives hokiing their seats by majori. ties of less than a hundred than there were Liberals with similar scant ma- jorities. of arbitration in labor troubles that he coulrl find anywhere from the standpoint of the workinsmnn. That Is a distinct compliment to this phce of Canadian'legislation. In alleging.that the papers that are supporting reciprocity .are doing because they, are given government advertising, jlr. Magrath made a slate went that is hardly worthy of a man of the calibre his friends soy he is; and his opponents have -believed him to be. How does he explain why the Ottawa Citizen and ihe Kingston Standard, and other staunch Conser- vative papers are supporting the past? Have these, too, been bought, as ho alleges of the Liberal papers? Mr. Miigrath says he has got nc mandate from the people of his con- stituency to support reciprocity. He certainly got a protiy clear indication of the peojile's will In the memorials that were sent him from practically every community in the riding asking him to give the measure his support He has as much of a mandate as Jjhn Herron got and the latter evidently considered it sufficient when he de- clared that eighty-five per cent, of his people he found in favor of the agree rnent. Another Example (Winnipeg Tribune.) On Saturday the Tribune publishs- etl from one of the most reliable news- that prompted the Conservative party to adopt the course it did in the House. But the Star Is alone in its de- claration. The Ottawa Journal, pub- lished -by Mr. P. D.

These two official organs of the Tory party evidently do not think A Candid Friend j The Ottawa Citizen, the leading Con Eervative journal in Ottawa, express- es the opinion that "most of the ablesl ;men of the'Opposition in -Parliament jhave diligently delved into statistics 'and sifted, an'd'aSiilyzed, and general ized; from the paVlial results attained: Optimism Go find the ir, a heroic endeavor to discover some 'pti'mist.
