Since the British pref- erence measure, it is the fust real, Simon-pure, legislation we have had, directed directly to benefit me, lo put money in my pocket. It is the first time in recent years that we have hail a chance, the first time we are given a fair deal or an even break with the big interests in the East. Personally, I looked upon the reci- procity pact as a ground on which Westerners of all classes could meet and work together for the direct good. it would bring lo the farmers and all this country. If we have money, ii we are prosperous, then every oth- inlerest goes on merrily. We arc the backbone oi Canada, and on that backbone in the past has been car- ried the load of Canada's progress. No one can deny the fact that the Canada farmer lias borne the brunt of the load and struggle [or Canada's progress. 1-Ssrc is, at last, a wel- come measure ol enough, but a step towards an slice on implement duties, and the opening of another and competitive market. The interests which opposing us get- ting these benefits are the interests which have been' milking the (armors for the past thirty years, sucking the rigor and sustenance out of the farm- ers, so lhat the manufacturers and protected interests in Canada might wax fat in opulence and prosperity, so that a great protected class inter- est growing up in Canada might thrive and fasten itself upon our country, and the farmers, producers and wage-earners would be forced 'hewers of wood and carriers oi water" for it. And what do I find today in Loth- bridge Instead oi giving us farm- ers a chance, giving this reciprocity deal a try-out to find out what H will do for us, I see some merchants, professional men, business men, and others, whom I would expect would time told that we arc of no account is an old and true alongside politics and that our farm1 money and' our trade it not wanted by .many l.ethbridge tradesmen.

Comparing the clnss of imrni grants which flow inlo the two re spective countries, he thinks that New Zealand lias the hett-ar of it. "We are not at nil jealous of the development, "ot Canada, and its al- most phenomenal growth. If one r.art of the empire I-A strengthened, then 1 maintain that the whole Empire is strengthened there.hy. But our Immi- grants are not as Europe as yours, and that makes a big differ- ence. They are more enterprising, more inclined to take ri-3ks and hear hardships, and, more important than that, (hey have more capital, and so they are never a tax on their neigh- bors. So there are few 'inhabitants of New Zealand who would change their abode for that of Canada. W-a are building up a people who are thrifty nnd strong, with a love'for all that is Anglo-Saxon.
