Reciprocity does not mean tho sub- longed cheering lasting for consider- Ureat llrltaln. It simply inenns t enrolling ot a new market. The statements of certain Conserv tive candidates thai reciprocity woul (hrow open the doors to all by th Introduction of Favored Nation Treatita was not worth considering. The countries that might endeavor to lak advantage ot tho situation were only nino in number, and not among the moat powerful. They were Bolivia, Columbia, Demnarli, Japan, whose largest commodity Is rice, Norway Huasln, Sweden. Venezuela, ed to a Lethbrfdgo audience on any land, and the Ar- gentino Republic.

At the recent Imperial Conference, held in London, Bug., ises were given' by the British gov eminent to the effect that -any detri mental trade treaty would be abrogat ed. What, then, have we to fear li- the adoption and trinl, at leust, of tht present pact? The Four Attacks It is -being attacked under foin heads. First: That it will ruin oui great arteries of commerce that ex- tend from the Atlantic to the Pacific The present .rendition of the C. P.

Montreal, Aug. rD. Tay- lor, mayor of Vancouver, was a'visit- or m the city yesterday, leaving for ivew York this' morning on private for a cpupl-e of days, after wmcn he will return to the Pacific coast metropolis.

That the stockholders ot the great transcontin- ental railroads are not in the .tekst alarmed is sufficient proof that rail- road trade will only be increased by the adoption of the pact in view of the tact that the trade route from Win- nipag to Liverpool is 652 miles near- er by way of .Montreal than it is by I way of Chicago.and Nrew York. A second cry raised by our opppn? ents Is that reciprocity will Destroy Our Natural Resources., T maintain that unless our soil is cul tivatcd, our coal mines worked, our timber cut down for proper use, that our resources are liUIe. The opening of wider markets puts us in a position to perform these dut- ies. Equally RS ill-founded is the cry that our industries will be imperilled. Why, these are scarcely touched; 'Ag- ricultural implements are slightly af- fected, but our Canadian demand is far In excess of our supply, and with more people fast settling our plains we need the implements in large quaiir tltiea and at reduced' prices iE pos- sible. As for the opposition argument that reciprocity will dissolve our autonomy and land ua in the U. S., that is one of the least dangers. Mr. Bordoii on his recent, tour dwelt largely on this, and tried to smother the issu-o by ap- pealing to the sentiment of the peo- ple when it is a matter of trade on- ly. During the last century a million of the sons and Naught-era of the Ca- nadian soil that have migrated to the States have made good there. Under i he instigation of some of these are the present changes proposed. Today these people, many of them in com: pany with their descendants and their American cousins are coming to Ca- nada again, to make good 'and great citizens of the British Empire, as they were of the United States. Lastly, a still further cry of the Qj> position, and one that does not make for national advancement IB "Let well enough alone." four thousand years ago, China was the greatest nation in tlie world. "Some days ago, the local paper support ins tne opposition candidate posted the slogan, "Vote tor Magrath anil tho Chinese wall." (Ctoeera from .Msgrath -supporters.) "I did not know there were so many Chinamen pres- was the quick and discomfiting retort. "China adopted that policy and what is -she today? Do w-a In Ca- nada want to have a history such as? China? Do we want to stand still or go back?

I believe I have before me an audience made up of intelligent, ijvople, who havo already satisfied themselves on this .who have fixed their own minds how they are going to vote on election day.

Buchanan said: from the people on this tiuosllon of reciprocal trade with the United as a whole. The campaign so far 1ms been absolutely free from personali- ties. Mr. Magrath has treated me well In this regard, and while we may differ in politics, ,1 do not we will' allow, our political differences to interfere with our personal friendly relations. So far as this cam- paign is concerned it. is not going to make a whit of difference to my friendship for my Conservative friends .in the city, and whether I am elected in. this campaign, or. whether 1 am de- feated, is not going to make tlie least difference in regard to my giving my services for the best interests of the city of Lethbridge. I hope that 1 continue to'rserve your interests 'so long as it may lie in my power to But b-ecause T am a citizen of tiiis city, T have 'reasons for supporting the reciprocity measure, which I wisli to before you. Letlibriilge is An Industrial City find from it-s location and resources is bound to remain so, and eventually to b-acome one of the greatest indus- trial centres on the continent. And because It Is an industrial city, there are certain ways in which this pact is bound to aid in' its future develop- ment. For time, and particular- ly during tfo past few months, the Board of Trade have been putting forth every effort to induce manufact- uring Concerns to locate' Iiere, know- ing that that is one of the very best means of building; up a city, large and prosperous. But their efforts Have met with but a small measure of success, and for the. reason .that the manufacturers always advance ex- cuses to tbt effect that the city is not large enough, and the'population of the surrounding country is not yet dense enough to warrant tlveir com- ing; here and investing- a large am- ount capital. Xow, I believe tiiat if reciprocity were to be obtr.lned for the-Camidinn r-epple that, the ne- cessary increase of population would follow, and in a short time Lethbridge would become one of the natural in- dustrial cities of the Dominion.. Alberta being ;is yet a province in which agrirultuvp forms tiie chief oc- cupation of the people, and the main source of our wcojfch, must then first look to legislation which will result iu bringing the people from other jmrfioiis of the world here to fleveT'-p our land. The country de- pends on this development, almost wholly for its future growth, as was :videnced by the depression which followed the partial crop failure of lust year. Now it is beyond the shad- iw.of n doiilit Hint tli-a increased pros- perity of our farmers would mean in- creased prosperity for all and there- fore tho building up of a better prov- ince for pnnpic lo live in.

Me measure bec-anse he honestly it to 'be a step for the Increase of Prosperity of that Empire of which'we form so important a part. Then, we have in the next rifling John John Her- rou, they call him, coming out as a Conservative in favor of the pact. And as he has always been honest in the opinion of the "Conservatives of the Macleod. constituency in the past, I have no reason to believe that h-e ra other than honest in this case. Wtot- ever the logic of his position may be in this case, 1 that ba honest- ly believes ,in. reciprocity because he thinks that it is a measure for the good of. tho.people.of .his constituency, and for the people, of Canada as a whole. At .the Conservative conven- tion held hi that riding some time at o he came out flatfooted.in favor jf the pact, and he was the unanimous choice ot the meeting. Though he remains true to his leader on the oth- er planks of hia platform he cannot see his way clear to support him in this and has .stated as much on n public platform. Then, again, at Brooks, I had on the platform with me a Mr. Armstrong, a lite-long Conservative from Main-era township, Qnt, where it is hard to find a Liberal even with a fine-tooth a Conservative of the Sir John A. Jlacdoirald and he stated that Mr. Borden had Not Yet Convinced Him lhat reciprocity was wrong, and, be- lieving that the Laurier administra- tion had advanced a measure which was houml to bring increased pros- perity to the people of Canada, he found that he could not conscientious- ly do other tlxin vote for the Liberal candidate on September 21.

DOBBIN, FTgental 310 7th Street Lethbridge, Alia draw your attention to a few facts corning tlio previous agreement, which some of yon here probably re- member when it was in force between LSiH anil ISIiC. In reading the his- tory of this agreement, as contained in Sir John Bourniot's Life of Klgin, was at that time Govertur- Ucneral of Canada, and a man wlio had tlie whoi-e interest of his coln.iy at heart, we find that this able slafes- ;ie leenng 01 me nl.m .brnught Ulo fol. tllo ition timing ion pUrpD6e of bringing the discon- give the tb-sy feel compelled lo cast their vole in favor l'i'- of reciprocity in the coming election. During the course of i'.ie campaign so far have heard a great deal ah-1 out the relation of the loyalty of the Canadian people as it will'he affcctr I ed by the passing of tllo pact, and our Conservative friends are endeavoring by this subterfuge to mislead I he peo- ple into voting against the measure.

But nevertheless, Lord Elgin and the gov- ernment put forth strenuous efforts to have the treaty continued, to iiO avail. However, ever sines that time and both pnrttes have been anxious to negotiate another agreement along similar lines. But now when 'that concession lias been negotiated, what do we find?
