Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald IV. Lethbriilire. AlU.. Thursday, Number 208 TARIFF WILL BE THE BIG ISSUE Taft Opposed by Demo- crats and Progressive Republicans Washington, 6-, Aug. Ni.-On the oi the presidential nomina- tion campaign, the tariff has become an iw.uo between the resident, aml thu regular Republicans, Senator La Follcltc anil the progressive Hc- niiiillriius, and the llcmocrats. The president Is in favor oi a revi- sion downward, but will veto .the tariT bills wliicli will lie presented to this because, in his judg- ment, they arc based upon suflicient expert and because, by a few months, congress will oi'.iippod. through reports of the tariff-board, to make scientific anil exact clwngcs in duties. Senator La Follellc holds that it is ,iliL' illit} of the president and con- to jiive the. people relief from the Iniquities of the Aldrich law at the earliest possible moment. Because of the weakness and imperfection oi the law authorizing the tariff board, he the difficulties which have beset that board in getting the exact mid reliable data. Hut (fie bills he has advocated in connection with the v.'nc! and cotton schedules were scientifically prepared upm information supplied by exports, nt Viist. to the extent of malting it safe for congress to reduce the duties without of crossing the line mea- tliring. the difference in the cost of production at honie and abroad. Finally, Mr, Kollctte points out that while the regular Republicans ore ortcriai; lip objection to revision it this time because they anticipate a tariff veto, they will not be so iMiiesccnt'with tho next 'session, when there will lie no excuse for delay. In other words, he urges that the present opportttiuty be ami if the board's reports should show the advisability of further changes they can be made at the next session. Tho Democrats arc committed to immediate larift revision in accord- ance with their national platform and the '.vil! tlic people as shown in tho last congressional elections.' Thf'v claim they have ntilized all the statistical data available in con- ru'Ctton with wool, cotton, and the free list bills, and suggest that the reports of the tariff noarrt may not ho cyniplele, 'since its position ap- pears to be that it, in conference and under the sole control of the. president, shall lie the sole judg- es .is to what part of the data it collects nray he likely to he of ser- vice for purposes of legislation. Representative Underwood says it is nut impossible that there may lie fionvs .such delay in the communica- tion to eon.nrcss of statistical data collected by the tariff board concern- ing '.1-oql and woollen- goods as there was in communicating tg congress or making public the.dala collected by the bureau of corpnraticns concerning investigations of the steel ami other industries.

CROPS GOOD ALL OVER SOUTH IS SILLY TALK 4 LIBERAL CANDIDATE IS SEFUOUSLY ILL Prominent American Says United States Does Not Want Canada "Were Canada tojJay to ask for ad- mission to tho United States, she vouid be refused. We do not want Canada." That the true the peo- ple and the government ot the United States as regards any desire for an- nexation, Is fittingly expressed in the f above words, is the sial-ement of Her-j man J. Zeieh, president of u large j wholesale grocery firm in Davenport, j Iowa, who is at present on -a trip to Southern Alberta, j Mr, Is the original purchaser j of the big C. Y. ranch at Taber, which j he bought from Hon. A. J. 'McLean several years ago, and gull-divided j into farms. He is an American with n wide knowledge of the affairs of j the republic, and moreover, aa en- j lliusla-3t for reciprocity, j "Tills talk ot annexation that is be- ing put un by the opposition in n.n.n- ada is really an insult to the intelli- gence and the patriotism of tho adian people. It is the silliest ment inmginabta to say that because Canada is going to buy and sell from the United States she is going to become part of the United States. Moreover, Ihe United States does not want panada. We have all we can iiaiKile with the territory now in our possession. The annexation talk was started in the States by irresponsibic people, and is fteing kept up by Irre- St. Hyaelnlhe' ,Aug. Beau perl ant, M. P., Liberal candidate, la lira critical con- dition. The last sacrament was administered at 5 o'clock this morning, and his death is 'but apparently a matter of hours. 4>
