There may be, as reported, a big campaign fund raised from those who don't want the fanners to have reci- procity, but it is some comfort to 'recment. Reciprocity will not be to them an abstract question whose ben- iefi's have to be figured out on paper, ;but a condition of whose advantages they have had personal experience. Reciprocity will add io the value of what they produce, and therefore toj [the value of the land on which they produce it Against this addition lo their earning power and wealth, Magrath is righting.

Although It is difficult-, we can un- derstand a mnn opposing reciprocity, and yet being endowed with ordinary Mr. Borden may discuss constitu-jsense, for we know a great ional niceities until he is dizzy, but le is only wasting his time in doing One question and one quest ion only will be taken cognizance of by he people of Canada in the present el- ection, and that is reciprocity, the prizes, which, coupled with the question upon which .Mr. Borden ask- 'eel that an election should he held and while making an effort to get a credit- able exhibit ready. Every care will be taken of the exhibits and arrange- ments are perfect to have them shown to the very best advantage. The di- rectors have made elaborate efforts to make the fair a success. The splen it id new buildings, the excellent fair grounds, the transportation facilities, the prizes offered, and all the hundred seesssfy dciaiis, large and small, have 'been considered and pro- vided. The hearty co-operation of the citizens of Let lib ridge and Southern Alberta, together with the weather man, will make-the 1911 exhibition the greatest ever. Reciprocity an Advance Step SPITE of the facts of history, and of the constant reminders they are getting' of these Tacts, the loaders of the Conservative party arc attacking the reciprocity agree- ent, as If It were, a new and radical from the Unite.!

Not only have there been repeated efforts made by both Con- servative and Liberal premiers to have just such a reciprocity agree- ment made, but decided advances t wards the proposed agreement have Tobacco already been made.

Where Reciprocity Should Win (Edmonton Bulletin.) W. A. Buchanan, M. P. P., is to car- ry the reciprocity banner in the Med- icine Hat constituency. .He should be a winner. Mr. Buchanan is a young man with more than usual ability, who has made good in business, and has had tho benefit of experience in prov- incial politics. And he heads a cause which should win anywhere, and which should certainly win in Medi- cine Hat.
