Add to that technical education, and you have tho policy that the Liberal government bus been working on for years.

Buchanan will not be asso- ciated with th. editorial work of The Herald, which will be con- ducted by other members of the staff. t The Real Conservative Policy A farmer who had spent eight years in Dakoia and had only got one crop, smiled when he. was hailed out on Tuesday. "Losing one crop is noth- he said; "I lost seven in Dako- ta, and took the money from the first crop to come to Canada." Herrou will find it was a good deal easier to railroad his nomination through a convention than it is to get away with a sufficient number of votes to return him to Ottawa. Reciprocity is tho farmer's' turn. Vote for Buchanan, and help them to take advantage of it. It is a very hard job to persuade the fanner who knows his business that reciprocity will injure him. And the majority of them know their business. such a policy will retain in Canada thousands of our fellow-countrymen now obliged to expatriate themselves, in search of the employment denied them at home; lliat it will restore prosperity to our struggling industries now so badly depressed, will prevent Cauada-being made a sacrifice mar- ket, will encourage and develop tin active iiiterprovincia! trade find mov- it ought to the direc- tion of a reciprocity of tariffs with our neighbors, so far as the varied in- terests of Canada may demand, will greatly tend to procure for this coun- try, eveutnally, a reciprocity of trade."

By re- ,1 judicious readjustment of the tariff, pudlnting the latter, tho Conservative EVERT Conservative should vote for reciprocity. It is in full accord with the Conservative policy enunciated (by Sir John A. Mac- donald.'who framed the National Pol- icy which has been the standard pol- itical platform of the Conservative party oven- since. In 1S7S, Sir John formulated the National Policy, and carried the country on it. In 1S79, he made that policy an act ot Parliament, and in the bill when en- acted. Sip John Inserted the following clause, which was adopted by Parlia- ment, every Conservative member of the House voting for it. .The resolu- tion reads: "That this House is of opinion that What Harm can come to the coun- try by each farmer having a tew hun- dred dollars more ea'ch year to spend as a result of reciprocity? please sent! answers to the editor of the joke column.
