HOB'S progress, or large in its lettrmg upon Canada's It is m occasion when the worn tracks ur politics and past political affilia- tions are beaten down, and Individual- ism lakes their place. That each In- aiviauaJ, b-3 he millionaire, inanuf-ac- mrer, workman, tradesman, farmer, rancner, land man, 'real estate man, railwayman, minister, laborer, no mat- ter wnat liis calling, must look upon mis great Question from a personal standpoint, is shown In the campaign now being waged. Tire interests wnich are thriving under a high pro- tection tariff'are out .war on one nand, fearfui lest the thin end 01 tne weoge enter into Canada's tar- ia wall; and on other hand the ugnculuirlsts are striving toward the attainment from relief from tariff ouraens, through, the wiping out of lanns and Imposts which touch the [jocKet 'book at every turn.-and which nave largely negatived his efforts In tne past and have stood In the way or material advancement. The line is very sharply and distinctly drawn. It s BO plain that "he.who runs may ;aa." Tne most insistent and outstanding reature in the movement for filling ne requests for wider mar- nets in the battleground of opposition attitude of Crying Before Being Hurt. Apprehension as to what may foi- low Liie entry of. the tariff reducing weoge is dominantly rampart behind me campaign of opposition, and it is mere against tho good Judgment of many men of sound good sense; against the judgment of ninny manti- niciurers, and it is there in monu- mental insincerity as a campaign Is- sue. Most men at heart .believe sin- cereiy that any measure which bene- iits the agriculturist benefits every other industry, and tont. if the agriculturist is prosperous and contented all isjwell right down tne believing this In heart, nave not (he sincerity of purpose to witnstand the dictates of politics and loilow the plainly indicated course. Ttie immediate value and io Canadians of the endorsement of me reciprocity agreement lies wholly m ine larger market it'will afford for Lanaciian natural products, such as inose of farming, mining, fisb'tig and inninering. Th-3 exceeding small and ummporraTit reductions the agreement manes In the tariff on manufactured gooas, makes the opposition of the a matter of wonder, and me absolute freedom the agreement gives either country to make further alterations or adjustments, leaves aman cause for complaint on the grounds of 'injustice. The real rea- sons tor opposition fo the ratification ur tn-s agreement are such that they uare Not be Openly Acknowledged. On the the agreement is do-' cldcdly In the best interests of Can- ada and as such U supported by all who havu given it the slightest study and who are untmmmalletl by selfish interests or party affiliations.' It cer- tainly behooves the people of Canada and the west particularly, who have the opportunity and fucilltleB for giv- ing the Question Intelligent and care- ful the younger men, upon whose shoulders will rest the national responsibilities clurlng'Vthe ensuing bestir themselves an-J to throw parti- sectarians! m, political catch- words and oth'er ompcy considerations to the winds, and got down to the Cation of sound economic doctrines. There arc some young men who .are avowedly oppos- ed io the fulfilment of this agreement Tor old line political reasons, who could not, on a bet, put up an argu- ment pro or con on this question from a sensible and economic stand- point, because they have not given it any study and in .fact do not know what it ia, or what, It re-ally means to this -great country -of ours, it is simply a political football to them, and they will kick it, regardless of the fact that it is loaded with good things for Canada. Study uf the ques- tion will remove ignorance, and the young man of today should fight shy of the accusation that his interest in Canada's welfare is not deep enough to lead him to study great questions as they come up, and io pads or, them as a result of .his own study and observation in intelligence and not ignorance. A Divided House Southern Alberta shows in a strik- ing way that there is of opinion on the lines of opposition and in the methods employed. All the Southern. Alberta ridings were repre- sented 'by Conservatives in the last parliament. the Conserva- tives are opposed to the slightest In- road upon the tariff wall, and oppos- ed to the ratification of t'ie recipro- city agreement as ,it is the first step towards the end.

David George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, while laying the corner stone for a chapel nt Heath yesterday, appealed to Christian churches to. reach the wrong from which the masses aro suf- fering. "There are multitudes in this coun- try -who, notwithstanding grinding toll, do not earn enough to Keep body and soiil he said. "There are members of Christian churches who no vcr have misaed a delicacy, yet they became angry when another class of the population makes an effort to mod- erate their condition.
