The statement is simply of the suppression of the truth and the suggestion of the false type. Yet this same journal accuses the Liberal press of Alberta of stooping to mendacity in its efforts to influence votes in the coming elec- tion. For the use of such language it will :be simply sufficient to recall the old legal injunction: "When your case is 'bad abuse the witnesses on the oth- er side." What Might .Have Been ON RISING TO SPEAK, the Pre- j inier, Sir Robert Burden, was greeted with cheers from both of the House, an example of unanimity seldom seen in any par- liament.

I well remember, his statement, after an ineffectual ef- fort to negotiate a trade agreement iviiii the government of the United States, that Canada wpuld go no more twelve years it was in force Ca- nada enjoyed unexcelled prosperity! The United States, thinking, 1 believe, that the cutting off of their market from the Canadian people would lead this country to ask for political union with themselves, broke off the arran- tement. The members of this house know the result.

"In. 1SS4, he asked the people to stand fast by the protectionist policy until such Mine as the States accept- ed reciprocity in natural producti on the termu of the offer he had uise-d to be put on the statute 30k.

Which Way for Canada (Toronto Globe.) Shall Canada take the approved British way of freedom and give to Canadian farmers the privilege of ex- changing their products in the near- est markets and buying and selling as suits them best? Or shall Canada take the discredited American way and make it unnecessarily difficult and expensive for ihe men who pro- duce wealth by their own labor to let for themselves the honest re- turns for their toil? It' loyalty to British methods and examples is to be counted in this cam- paign, it is the men who would pre- vent Canadians selling where they please and -buying what they want who .are the real traitors to British tradition.
