W'a all know with what unprecedented success. In the handling of these tariffs it has been neceaaary many times to adjust them to suit the conditions. j For many years It has been the ^ope I that Canada would receive fairer �treatment in the United States market ! for the things we have to sell. But this opportunity did not offer itself erabundance, the Canadian ministers saw at once the enormous advantage it would mean to Canada to open up a market of ninety million people for the things Canada can grow for sale. And this is what they did. They secured the larger market for \ Canadian products without in tlie! slightest interfering with the tariffs j which already applied on m.inufact-ured articles, save a small reduction of 2 1-2 per cent, on agricultural im-pleinent�. So thai Canadian industries have not been tampered with,! but steps taken looking towards a i still vaster expansion in the West with a consequent Increase in the amount | of goods required ilicre, and under the i proposed agreememnt all this increas- j ed trado must of necessity pass I through t:iese cities at the head of the lakes.

The Rovernmeiii tlion appealed to the British govornment tn use Its Influence with thai of the United Statea "to avert what would be regarded ai a great calamity." But the I United Stat�i held to its determiaa- tion to abrogate the treaty, and it was done in 18H6. In 1868, Sir .lohn A. .Macdonald Incorporated In the first tariff law passed by the Dominion parliament -a stand ing offer of reciprocity along the lines of the treaty of 1854, which was closed In 186�.
