Tho Liberal party lias advanced this re- ciprocity agreement believing it to be In the best interests of the farm- ers, tlio iiiechuiilu. tho miner, and those others of our population which form tho tergo percentage of the peo- ple. But tho Conservative party, tho jiarty of the nionlcd classes and tho Interests, oppose the legislation with the Hamo cry, adding to it the dis- loyalty cry against the champions of the movement.

Premier Slfton Speaks In one of the most, pleasing and elo- quent addressee ever made to a Leth- bridge audience, the Hon. A. L. Slf- premier of Alberta, thon placed Defore tho electors of this city his reasons for supporting the reciprocity agreement -as. advanced -hy the Laur- ier government. His address was a masterly presentation of the fiubject, and I-aft no doubt in the minda.of any- one in the large and attentive aii-d- lence as to his reasons for believing the legislation to he for tho Kood the Dominion of Canada. His scath- ing denunciation of the disloyalty cry ralBed by the Conservative party in connection with the issue was one of the eutslanding features of his speech, leaving their annexation scare with- out a leg lo stand upon. His address throughout marked him as an orator of tho first water, and aa n statesman who has at all times the wolf n re of the Kmjiire and of the peoulo at a rt. "After listening to the nddresa of ;Mr. he began, "I feel cer- that it would afford much constituency, receiving the encourage- neht" which Is sure io greet him on evory hand as he travels about among be people. And I am pleased to be iere tonighf, lo .you why I am in avor of the agreement as negotiated by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and lis government, pleased, I might say, n spite of the Criticism of the Newipapsrs lint. I am degrading the high office of iremier of thfe province in coming1 mt on a public platform, and there tating my own reasons for support- ng this measure. Apparently H is ill right for the premier of British 'olwnbia, or Manitoba or-Ontario to take the platform in opposition to the measure, but for a Liberal pre- mier, they say it is treason, and their only reason seems to ha that the legislation was advanced by, the Lib- eral government of Canada. "You don't need to be told that for forty years reciprocity has been want- ed by the people of Uiese prairie pro- vinces. The movement "Cor .freer trade with the United State's has al- ways been one of the matters Agitated by the People of Western Canada. Some of you may possibly remember when the p-aople of the west forced the government to remove from ttie charter th-e F. .H. that clause preventing that company from building lines to the United States. The people in those clays wanted access to the American markets, and they still want it, H doesn't make any difference about .ilia price of wheat or cattle. This mat- ter is simply a. question of the peopta wanting access to the best, market they can get. for their produce, her the pric-as are higher here one week than over there, or higher there the next week than here. It is not question which requires the nrgn- nents of newspapers, though some newspaper men are remarkably in- telligent. (Cheers.) H Isn't a matter of the price of cattle being 6 cents on, the Chicago market one day white on the same ttoodod wljh Am orlcan stock, and our fanners ruined result of reciprocity.

No, sir, that is not th-3 reason. A horseman told me in Medicine Hat the other day that he had driven across the line with a team.

This is your only chance, -and T ask you to go early on tho morning of Sept. 21 and record your vote for tho Liberal candidate supporting reciprocal trade with tho United Slates. "Reciprocity has for a long time been one of tha aims of the party of Canada. Thoy believe it lo be for the future prosperity of the country. In their enormous Liberal convention held in the city of Ottawa in ISO" il- was made ono of the planks of their platform, and ever since thej have been working to this end. 1 therefore support tho Liberal party of this country, for whm it has done for building UP a Widor for the country, for its progressive railway policy, and for its loyalty to the Empire of which we form a part. Loyalty and Railways It may be a surprise to some of our Conservative friends who nre fearful that the reciprocity agreement will kill the east -and west traffic of our railways, and who intimate that tho railways are opposing the pact for this reason, to know that the rail- ways of Canada are seemingly not op- pc-jed to carrying on business with the United States. In fact. I think a MUle careful study of a railway map will reveal to them that the three great Canadian railway systems of own enough mileage in the Untied Stains to build another trans- continental railway in Canndu. And this mileage was built with money oh- mined on ereult. of ihi: people of .Some of them may have Heard of the Soo-Sjpokaue elllng between St. Paul and Spokane, and passing for the moat part of Its ourney through Canadian territory, or of the Grand Trunk, owned English capitalists, who on beginning -ailway construction on this contin- ent, constructed unions their first inec, a branch to Chit-ago, this even before they ever offered to 'build a Ine into the Canadian west. They also built a branch to Portland, Me., before they ever thought of building u transcontinental road. This latter step was taken only aftpr the Laurier government had practically paid for the buiklin'g'of the road: And the f. N. R., the third transcontinental rail- way In this country, lias holdings in the United States. "AVonderful, Is it not, how these great companies with their ?reat men such 23 ilr, Shaughnessy and Mr. Sin Utters us presidents, can do such an immense business with and In the United States without making their presidents disloyal to their country? J3ut the farmers of Canada cannot do I'ive dollars worth of business with the Americans without being Charged With Disloynlty. "The president of tho Bank of Com- merce, and presidents of other large financial concerns in this country tell the p-aople to vote against'the gov- ernment in this iE-siic. But the mon- ey of the' Bank of Commerce moved three-fourths of the American cotton crop last year, good'Canadian money it was too. They do business in a way most yroliiubie to the bvmUs, and their- loyalty is not affected. Only the Farmers evidently are affected by with the people to the south of us. As soon a-3 they en- deavor to take advantage of the same proffered opportunities, they are charged with disloyalty to their country, and with courting annexa- tion to United "States.
