Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IJTTHBRIDGB DAILY HERALD Monday. Angud 21. LETHBMDGE DAILY HERALD Publlahad .by the Htrald Publlthlng Co., Uwful tvtnlna at Its office. Sixth strset, LrthbrMit. W. A. Ojraaior tfrtw. PHONE: Rtportorlal, and Newa D boasts is that he gives a straight answer when he is asked a straight question. Some days ago, the Her- tld published an interview with a gentleman, who was one of the far- mers' delegation to Ottawa last winter and who was one of the party to whom air. Magrath spoke in the lobby of the of ICommons expressed his sympathy with the demands of the farmers and promised his hearty sup- port.' The Herald asked him plainly why he promised to support recipro- city at that time, for it was first and foremost of the demands of the farmers and a few weeks afterward came out strongly against it. Instead of fulfilling his boast, of giving straight answers, Mr. Jlagrath in taking up the-Herald's-question at nil meeting at ing, hedged Vccoraing .to the ie port of the meeting sent, the Herald that as the delegation came down in December and the re- pact was made public in- Feb- ruray, he could not aee the 'connec- That a straight answer., lir. 'Magrath told those men that he! Favored-and: their de- mands He knew 'that the first of reciprocity. If he did not, he foolish to promise to support the ..Tanners', demand for something he knew- nothing about. He told his hearers that he did not think the government-.would give them recipro- city, but he was in favor of it among their other He assured them that he believed they were on the right track but now is trflng to put them off that track. IL--is useless for Mr. Magrath to say that he-cannot see the connection.! -people of -this constituency are entirletj to a straight answer to straight question. Did he an> one or'more of the fanners' delegates at 'Ottawa that he waa in sympathj with thilr demsnds and would sup port them in Becuring them? Did he know that -reciprocity was one of these? if did he make such a promise? If BO, why did he change front in a few'weeks and oppose the reciprocity .agreement, which, while not containing everything the farmers wished.-has. been accepted by them Nothing but a plain straight, question the electors this con stituency. THERE ARE, NO DOUBT man persons m ho without bias o prejudice, study the reciprocity flueation from both points of view. to say they are readers of the Arguments and the for and jigainst, In the Liberal and Consena journals Their reading is the outcome of an interest in the subject It is-a good practice which we com mend, i'or.observant readers will easily detect ivhat we may mildly describe the strangeness and incongruity of tfce opinions and deductioris of the Torj precs A case In point is what Britten in the Calgary Herald. In one issue pf this journal is printed a table of statistics showing the re- lation of the exports and imports be- tween Canada arid the United States in' the years 1909 and 1910. The figures of 1911 represent Che produce bf 1910. We have already comment- ed on the choice of years, that is "an- other .story" which speaks for Itself. What we have in present considers tion Is the observation of that journal on the large export of hay the United States, which showed an in crease of in spite of a bad year and a -hostile tariff. We'quote it for what it is worth, "The big in- crease was in hay, the one thing that makes the farmers who sell It poor. In a later iasue, amidst the manifold evils which it is wildly asserted will befall the Albert an farmers should re- ciprocity .become a fact, is the follow inf. "Hay, which he now sells to Columbia camps, will rot on hjs That Way Bedlam Lies Alberta farm, while California will supply the "former customers." What a turning of the tables, and this won- derfuj; topsy-turviness will 'be all due to reciprocity. It is a sort o!

The farmer who sells hay makes himself poor, and if l.c fails to sell it he is in a worse state. Is there any sense or coherence in it all? 'What is-the value cf a cause wjilch and inferences of this sort to bolster it up?

Cheaper Fruit and Vegetables THE PEOPLE OF SOUTHERN Alberta get hy far the greater part of their fruits and vege- tables from Washington, Oregon and Idaho. There are several reasons lor this. One is that the Amttrican produce Is available earlier In the season than is the British Columbia product. Another is that the B. C. growers do not produce enough to the demand and ore not care- .ful In giving the right hinds or in picking and shipping so as to land the produce in the. shape the prnirle people -want it. And owing to freight Aratefl and the perishable nature o( PJIMK fruit and vecetables it is next to Impossible to bring th'e stuff rrcni Cnuda. The result is hmdrcdi carloads of fr.ult and tabMt an brought acroaa the line in of the duty and consumed hy the foople of the It cost them more than It should owing to the The 8 C growers taking advantage of the duty will not sell their fruit cheaper than the American products can; be purchased for a'nd -their sup- ply is' not sufficient. If the reciprocity treaty Is adopted the duty on fruit and vegetables v.-'ll lie removed. What does this to each consumer in Lcthbrlilue and all other parta of the prairies?
