B me pretation What is the relation of :his agreement to' the'British prefer- ence? The agreement provides that we must give the West, Indian colon es specified a preference ovei for elgn imports of ''at least" 'twenty pe'i cent. At present we give them a pre- ference which 1-3 per cent., but "which v'aries from 20 lo LOO her cent., with the higher figure more frequent than the lowei Now the Dominion government may 'ulfll this agreement in eithei of two wavs It mav leave the pieference as it Ih or it maj reduce it to i iniforni 20 pel cent On this point 10 official-statement'has been mad-a, but it is understood -that the door was deliberatelv left open The piohabll it) seems lo be-that the British pre ference will But this :s not certain, jnd cannot be assumed in forming ah opinion'of the agree- ment from the'container's', point of Will Duties be Raised' If the preference leniains unchang ed, ihe tariff will not be laiaed or owered, Tha consumer will not lose anv thing, but neither he gain at Jeast as fai as schedule 3 (the main poll of the agreement '01 the consumer) is concerned If the rates piovlded f in the igreement are strictly app icd hon ever the consumer will not come off nearlv so easilj Seventeen items in eluded m the sclredmp are alreadj on .be free list and will remain there mdei the agreement, so to that ,ent theie can be no change On two terns the rates nil! remain unchang ed, because the prefeience is now onlj 20 per -cnt T3ut on -'1 lUnis there 11 be removed from the free-list and made dutiable. The -'8 items on which ihe duties will be raised if the government de- cides to adhere to the strict lettei of heir obligations are as follows Haw sugar, 100 Ibs molasses per gallon sj rups, pel 100 gallons shredded sugai cane, cocoanuts, di reel impou, pel TOO, manjak coffee, roasted and pound: rice, cleaned per too Ibs lice Iloui, ptr b crude petroleum light, per gal on coal oil distilled, per gallon arrovroot, salt, In hulk, per 100 Ibs palt, uop spongei vegetables no i sweet potatoes, pel bushel toma oes, fresh tapioca flour per Ib tap oca flour poi Ib honej, per Ib essential oils itamarmdb, fresh or- preserved caltlo food, con ning molass-es, peanutt and kola luls, per Ib lumber, dressed The "JokeV" of the Contract So much .for how it will affect the consumer. If'the government decides to give tho West Indies what is ill the bond- aud nothing more.; If they do not reach that decision it is a case of as vou were" 'Iho iuueasei> do uot conle, but the consumer gets no .re- lief. That is so far as the main schedule of (he agreement is concerned; the consumer maj be well off as hp is now: he cannot umler its- terms, be belter off.
