Buchanan will not be asso- ciated with the editorial work of The Herald, which will be con- ducted by other members of the staff. This Tory annexation talk would he funny if it were not so absurdly fool- ish. The hide-bound Tory who opposes reciprocity is the man who kicks like a bay steer about the high cost of liv- ing but refuses lo vote to lower It. The best patriot Is the elector who votes for increase of the friendly between the parts of the -Vujrlo-Saxon race. The Conservative stumper who gets up before an audience and opposes re- ciprocity on the ioyalty basis not only i Insults his hearers but', acknowledges Uuchanan's supporters are confid- ent of victory, but are working to Rive him the ,blsgeit majority in the Pro- vince.
