An Apology That 'Explainsv CITIZENS OF WESTERN" Canada were somewhat puzzled when reading the despatches in the giving a report, of Sir .Wilfrid speech' "at to rerfd'that "he, said that reciprocity agreement would be.follow? ed by another which would bind the nations closer together. The Western Tory papers have nude much of that paragraph as indicating that Sir Wil- frid looked forward to an absolute commercial union, if inrtped not a pol- itical union of Canada and the United States. But the receipt of eastern exchanges shows that extended reports of his speech quote him as saying no such thing. The despatch sent west waa very evidently taken from the Toronto Mail and Kmpire's report. But that paper in the following words of ap- ology admits the inaccuracy of its re- port which unfonuntely was sent over the wires. The apology published in Its issue of August 17th reada: "O.ur report of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's Simcoe speech was somewhat conden- sjed towards; the close, iv part of his reference to the arbitration treaty be- tween BritainVand tlie' ITnited States was presented In such a way as to ap- pear to re2atet' to the Knox-I'ieiding agreement. Hence his remark that the arbitration pact will lead to another agreement was KO connected with what followed in the report as to leave the Impression .that he promised another reciprocity agreement between Cana- da and the United States. One para- graph of our editorial comment on the speech was based on this confusion. We very much regret to have attri- buted to Sir Wilfrid Laurier a state- ment he did not make." The Conservative papers which have made comment on this paragraph, as the Mail and Empire did. have a right if they would bf just, to publish an explanation of it. No other report in any Toronto daily quoted Sir Wilfrid Lnurler as giving utterance to such statements as those that were sent west. tton, An Accepted Responsibility E. KEMP. Ex-M.

In Halifax, in Mr. Bor- den's own constituency the formal re- solution in favor of reciprocity at the convention which nominated Mr. Bor- den's opponent, Mr. McLean, was moved by Mr. Howard Smith, a lead- exporter and heretofore a leading Conservative; and In .other constit- uencies throughout, the Dominion the Liberal candidates, as the champions of reciprocity, are receiving the SUD- port. of Conservatives reciprocity be- ng the issue before the people. In one constituency constituency only, namely, Macleod, the Conserva- tive candidate Is resorting to the pre- posterous device of proclaiming then came back. "I still have in my hand, she said.

Once before when 1 happened to have on an old dress she didn't speak to me either. Now I'm through with her.
