He reviewed the history of the reciprocity treaty of 1854, which was brought about bj I-ord Elgin in order that the discon- tent of tho, people of. the eastern pro viiices might' b'o and the trealy h'ad worked this ohiinge. Can- ada was prosperoxiH while the treaty WHR in force. Then the government of the States, hoping to stir up Ihe nnhexation talk in Canada again rogated the trealy. But Instead of annexation, tiie people once more prosperous and contented rallied and A confederation of the provinces re- sulted. But from that time both part- ies in jCanaila were united in the de- sire to obtain for Canada once more reciprocal trade with the U. S. Sir John A- Alacdonald made il, as it were his Laat Wilt and TeiUment FOR SALE The 8 roamed fully modern house, facing east snd known as No. 508 Westminster Ed., 14500. Terms. The H. MACBETH AGENCY NMURAMCI........- Corner Lots on 10th Avenue each, or terms as affecting the Canadian people. Sir Charles Tupper likewise favored and it has been a standing plank in the platform of tlie liberal Party since Sir Wilfrid Laurler came into He spoke of the various delegations to Washington for the p.urpose of bringing about another reciprocity treaty, how they had all been refused, and how at last the gov- ernment at Washington made recipro- city advances to the Canadian govern- ment from5 which the present, pact resulted. The negotiations between the two delegalions were very simple. Mr. Knox wrote a letter'stating terms on which the U. S. government would enter iiito 'a reciprocity treaty with Canada. Hon. W. S. Fielding replied stating the lerms. of the Canadian government. To each letter.was at- tached a schedule setting forth' the various products affected. But when Mr. Fielding came back to Ottawa'' for the purpose of passing Ihe bill in the Ottawa House, he was unable to pass it for the first time in fifty years. But tiie Liberal government, had slaked uheir reputations on the meas- ure, and that had-to be the first ques- tion taken up. The Conservatives in the House forsook the Faith of their Fathers and obstructed the measure, and the representatives of the people were forced to carry-Ihe mutter back to the people for their answer. Referring''lo .the opposition of the pact the speaker referred to the loyal- ty cry. raised, by the Conservatives in this election. He to see where their absurd cry that reci- procity meant the annexation of Can- ada to the United States had any ground for Thai peerless old leader of the Conservative party on a public platform at Napanee, OnL, in speech in which he advoaled just B.uch a reciprocity treaty with the. States' as this one will be, said British subject I was born; a British] mbject I die." He was not afraii that better markets for the Canadian people "would mean that they would wish to annex' themselves to the U S., or any other country. The dis loyalty cry raised by the Conservative party'for :political ;nurpose8 is an In suit to the intelligent voters of Can ada. The question before them is of trade, simply an economic question, and it .is most absurd 'to couple with ,il a question'of bin- loyal ty to our flag. And Borden in bis western tour spent lialf his time n an' appeal to the passions of the electors to vote against reciprocity n theee grounds. He resented, h said; the tactics of the Conservative party in raising this cry, and spoke (the Gum-boot Brigade which had been parading about in the [ark hours of the night in North Leth bridge for the past three weeks tell- ng the electors that in six months rom the time the bill passed the Can- dian parliament, the Stars and Stripes rould be floating over Canada. Was hat loyalty to the- flaff, he. asked. Compare their action with that pt'the Jberal party whieh has advanced this egislation for the benefit" of work- ng clauses, and therefore for the icuefit of Canada as a whole. He asked the electors to judge the and become 'good citizens.. .Tli Is no reason why the people of tlie States should not come to Canada and the ttamc thing happen. It It, happening .every day, he said, intelligent person doubled their loyal ty to the' British flag. 'Surely this cry, adynnced by ihu 'Conservatives could not be instrumental in defeat ing the Liberal candidate on Septem- ber 2UL Kcgardihg .Magritth's term ol office1, the speaker took occasion to remark thai had receiv- ed-many votes at the last election be- cause he had stated to the electors that at Ottawa he wouldl vote Independent of Party and that any measure for the Rood of tho people would have his support. But his actions there bad not borne this Bland out. In thc first division of ike'House he had lined up with the Opposition, and never once had he crossed the floor and voted with the government.' Surely, he said, no gov crnmenl is so rotten thai In three years it does not advance some meas- ure for the benefit of the people which the member o'f the Opposition could vote for. Air. Buchanan, he said, In tlie field as a s.upporter of the Lauricr administration, which mount government In the best interests of the Canadian people and he was sure that on Sept. the electors'of North Lethbridge could not do otherwise than cast their votes for him, and in- creased" prosperity in the great Dom- inion of Citnada. Dr. Galbraith followed in a short speech in which he dealt with the economic side of the question from from the standpoint of Ihc farmer and thc workingman, "It is he said, "that two countries lying side by. side.ihould have the best possible trade relations. Reciprocity. is a step this direction, and therefore i -step toward thai higher civilization tor which the world is striving. U means a balancing of trade between the two countries, and that means a new era of prosperity to Canada. And irosnerity means a betterment of the conditions of the working class. For the first time in history the Conservatives' have said that Canada in a-' v Prosperous Condition fliey; say :that if we prosper under we .will all become an- lexationists.

But as every thing had been done by the govern merit which apparently could lie done but of no avail, he thought U extreme- ly likely some new form of Legislation Would be Enacted by tho next parliament by which such labor situations might he handled in more satisfactory manner. There is probability of an Industrial Dip putes Commission being appointed icli will work very much along th lines of the Hallway Commission. The Liberal government means legislation for working, and it was es- sential, he said, that the Liberal gov eminent be'returned lo power, and as Lethbridge was in tlie most important onsHtuency in Alberta from a labor standpoint, it was imperative that thc labor men of the city unite !u return- ing a Liberal candidate-to Ottawa. He asked them" to. scrutinize, very ly both candidates, and to judge by ;heir past which -would' be the more .ikely to look well after their inter- ests at Ottawa. Mr. Magriith had in he past three years identified him- self with Borden and the Conservative tarty. That meant that he had lined up in tlie ranks of the classes in op- josltion to the masses: Mr. Bucbari- in would- take the first opportunity n pledging himself to do everything n his power for the betterment of the conditions ot the working classes sho.uld he be returned to Ottawa. Regarding Mr. Smith's history of the eight -hour shift bill for the benefit of the miners, Sir. Palmer branded it Deliberate Mil-Statement of facts, and challenged him again to meet ihim on any platform before an audience composed of labor men to debate the..question. Speaking of the bill the speaker said. "Previous to IS98 Mr. Mfigrain was at Regiha as member Ibis riding 'old' N. egislature. In that year, however, he esigneil, and Senator DeVeber was ilected to tho acclamation. Senator put thc eight hour shift >ill for the 'benefit of, the miners through anri it, fbecame law.

Senator DeVeber rose in the House, and opposed it, but through the lobby- ing of the present Conservative Candidate for this constituency, and through the R; B; Bennett, who tolil the members that the continuance of Ihc eight hour legislation would mean an increase in the price of coal io the Saskatchewan farmers, the amend- ment was carried ami the old bill went out of force and wns revived only a couple of years'Hgo by the'Alberts legislature.
