Alexander MHCken zle. succeeded In negotiating treat} providing reciprocity iti natural pro- duels, and n selected lilt of manufac- lures, but the American Senate reject- ed the treaty. When the returned to power in 1S78, mid when hi IS79 I the National Policy tariff was. brought I into effect, the standing offer of re- ciprocity, almost identical "'1th the agreement of 1911, WHS Incorporated Into the tariff. This offer provided that the Canadian -government, by Qr- der-in-Coimcil. could take the ilutieB off American without waiting for 1 Ited 'arllament lo convene, it the Lln- States Cong rest agreed to move the duties on the same products. Sir Charles Tupper, in 1SSS. commissioned to go to Washington to negotiate a treaty at nearly as posai ble like that of 1554, and as a special inducement offered the Americans special fishery privileges in Canadian fishing waters. In 1891, Sir Charles. Tupiwr. Sir Jofiu Thompson a.nd Hon. George E. Foster visited Washington twice and made what Sir Charles afterwards de- scribed as "nn. unrestricted offer of Three years later, April, 1894, Sir rulm Thompson, then Prime Minister of Canada, Dated that had taken occasion to let the United DtatM know that Cinadt was prepared to negotiate reciprocity treaty. in. 1S94, the Conservative govern- ment, with iloll. Ocorge K. Foster tt Finance Minuter, revised tariff and retained the offer, of reciprocity with the United Slates with tome :iln- or modlflcatloni. That was only enteen ycnrs ago. and bad the party itlll remained in power they would teyond doubt have -retained that )ffer n their tariff. As long as the Conservative eaHy the making of the Canadian tariff t held out of the offer of reciprocity. Their offer waa continued ,by the Laurler government, b.ut alter ISilfc there was no pilgrimage to Wasblng- ton to ask the Americans to take it. Now that President Taft snd [he American people have offered to Ca- nada the identical agreement that for thirty years the Conservative govern- ments tried to secure, the party tries to repudiate its previous policy. There can be only one of two reasoni for. their action. ElBher they are refus- ing to accept the offer because it >.'aa made to the Canadian through i Liberal government, or they are absolutely under the of the nonopolistic interests that fear they way lose something by having reclnroe ty adopted.

In 1903-1910, Canada ainst reciprocity is that the British market is the best mar- ket, and that it is a sufficient market for the in some individual cases it is the best market, hut in many others it is not. It is a good market for cheese, for instance, 1 the bulk of Canadian chceie goes to Britain. But last year the United I States imported worth nf'that 1 (ood. The removal of the duty ou cheese would give the Canadian i dairyman a chance at this market, in addition to that of Britain, and the American deman-d will constantly crease. The present duty is six cents A pound, 'which would be entirely re moved by the adoption of reciprocity. The export of butter to-Britain has de- creased of late years; while the ex- port of crewm and butter to the Un- ited States has increased -rapidly in spite of the duty. Even in these articles which have always been considered as articles almost entirely to Britain, is ceasing to be the beet market. But in many other inatancen the British market is not the "best. Take Jthe case of horses. There of a head on horses going into the, States! and Canada sends' large sent horses, valued at f to Bri- tain, apd valued at to the Un- ited'Slates. In 1010-1911, the figures ware -and respect ively. If Britain is the better market why are these horses not shipped there, especially the United Statei government coliecis 130 ou each horse imported? The reason is that is more profit Veiling in the States even affer having the duty of J30'deducted''from the price. Reci- procity add-the .difference tothe price received by the Canadian horse breeder. The sheep market shows the same condition of affairs. In 1909-1910, Ca- nada sold worth of sheep to Britain, and to the States, and in 1910-1911, the figures were 000 and rei pec lively. Vet heep enter the British market free and enter the States against a duty of '5 centis on lambs and on sheep over.a year.old. The British market is evidently not the best for Canadian j reciprocity will make the I American market stilt more desirable.' Thjit it might be shown in various the'British mar- tet, while, good for someiiproducts, if not toe bfist in mam otheis Vote for Rnchariau, Laurier rmd the arger market. The farmer does not ask for tar iff protection. Why force it on him? The Liberal candidate in Portals la Prairie against .Arthur 3. Meighen is a preacher, Rev, Robert Patterson of N'eepawa.. The Conservatives of Winnipeg and Brandon say they are satisfied with the registration conducted by the Do- minion government there. The govern ment conducted Mhe registration so that both sides, would get fair play, That was impossible, if the Roblin- Rogers outfit handled the Iist8. The Peterboro Review, Conserva- .ive, says that reciprocity will kill the lorse shipping business. why do flay Knight, George otfier ending horse breeders and shippers, ravor it? They" know the business .horou'ghly, and know that reciprocity will add ten to thirty dollars tpf alue of'every shipp.ed to the States, arid the States' will ch- ain when they are from Can- ada to.other countriwi. Annexation has been dead in Canada so long that the Conservative cannot now raise -even a genuine ghost of U. The present United States tariff compels the'Canadlau fanner to lose S4.00 on every ton of hay he ol.lps to the United States. Reciprocity will remove the duty entirely and give Canadian farmer from to acre of hay. "1 am a director in one one lumber company in Quebec and in another in British Columbia, and I know that re- ciprocity will benefit, both, I cannot see why any manufacturers have been induced to take a stand against Mr. Wm. C. JlacLaren, general roank- ;er--of" Haiti's Co., Limited, manufact- urers of gloves, suspendert, etc., Brockville, Ont. With delightful consistency, the Tory press and platform that reciprocity will mean the ruination.of Canada's transportation companies, and then that reciprocity will not raise for the Canadian producer.

A re-view of the history of the efforts lo secure reciprocity will help to clear the matter up and establish, the fact that the Conserva- tive party'hiis been a rnclpronity party during practically its Whole history. Sir A. T. Gait, afterwards a member of Sir John A. Macdonald's first Cab- inet after Confederation. In 1865, made trips to Washington to get the Reciprocity effect, ex- tended. The government then a'ppeal- to the British government to use fti Influence with that of the United "to avcrt: what would be re- carded ffreat calamity."

This next yetr, 1S69, Sir John Rose, then Finance.. Minister in John A.'s governnvent, went to Washington to try to negotiate a reciprocity treaty, but was not successful. in 1S70, the Canadian. Tariff was amended, and the offer of reciprocity was retained. When Sir John A. Macdpnalrt took part In the drafting of tile Washington' Treaty, which settled various differ- ences between Great Britain and Ca- nada on the one side, anrt the United on the other, he tried, but in vain, to have the matter of reciprocity tfkti eral, let the up the best fight possible, and if we gain a seat or will .say well done.
