Another Sheepman's Testimony RECENTLY the representative of the Toronto World, whicb has been making a specialty sheep statemei'-.. sent to lntervie-.v Parklnaou the well-known breeders uf ..ulocoin sheep at Eramosa. Ont. The inter- giviu, but did not appear. Speaking to a representative of an- other Toronto paper, Mr. Leonard Parkinson, one of the firm stated that hs was Independent in polities, and a subscriber to the World. He had been watching in vain for the appear- ance of the interview, and he char- acterized the double-column scream- er of Farmer Maclean as the veriest rot. "I told the reporter." said .Mr. Park- inson, "that there had been no sheep Industry in Canada to kill since the passing of the Dingley bill. The year before it went Into effect we sold osir wool for twenty cents per pound. In 11102 we sold S.OOO pounds for sev- i en cents per pound. 1 an; only able to judge the number of sheep kept by the number of nuns we send out each autumn. Before the Dingley bill wa-3 passed we used to send out sixty- five. Now we are lucky if we send out five. duty off sheep and sheep prod ticts and watch the sheep industry expand. I am for re- ciprocity." The reason the interview given the World was not published is obvious. Mr. Parkinson's vtews coincide exact- ly with those of Mr. Arkell and other well-known sheep men, whc havo ex- pressed their opinions. Nonsense or Sense IT IS only necassary to read the plain facts and figures as to pi-ices for wheat, barley and outs prevailing on this side of the United States' boundary line aa compared with 'hose on the other side to know that better prices are paid in the Un- ited States. The Grain Growers' Guide, in its last issEie, quotes prices for -Minneapolis and Winnipeg cover- ing a the past ten years, which show thi't in that jjci'iGil OL time only in four or months have the Canadian prices teen his'her. After presenting ail the prices and reviewing the situation, the Guide de- clares: "That ratification of the reciproc- ity agreement will mean dollars and j cents iu the pockets of the farmers in Western Canada who nave wheat, bar- ley or flax to dispose of. This better price will mean more prosperity. The prosperity of tht individual means the prosperity of the nation. The re- ciprocity agreement means a much more prosperous era for Western Ca- nada; and is but beginning of a much. wider movement towards the removal of trade barriers, which have hampered Canadian people for a gen- eration p'flEt." The Conservative papers are deny- ing what tha shrewdest practical eco- nomists, as well as all men who have ever traded or sold an> .Mii-j, io be true. It is hard u, ueileve that they are sincere when they deny that the simple principles of commercial economy are true. H is hard to be- lieve that thos-5 against reciprocity are absolutely iynorunt of business and trade; yet they talk as if they haj never bought anything, or car- ried on any busine-as transaction. Th-3y had found out by arithmetic that reciprocal free htide with the Un- ited States will ines. i ptevmi times much goods will be shipped to Ca- nada from the United States as from Canada to the United Elites. Ninety men, they say will be sh.'pping into Canada against eight men shipping to Uva United States. They probably think that people buy in proportion to the number of people reedy to sell. They think that if there are teu sho-a stores in one '.own that u man will buy ten pairs of shoes to one pair he would buy if there was but one shoe store. The fact there are ninety million people flipping goods to Ca- nada .will not make any Canadian buy one dollar's worth more than h-3 worJd buy if there were only eight mil- lion people shipping goods to Canada. It i-3 all nonsense and everybody is familiar with th-ese theories. A little ordinary business logic, which is only another name for common -sense, will dispel them. Where Prophecy Failed WHEN the famous Lloyd Georg-a Budget was introduced, the argument put up by its oppo- nents was that it would mean the fin- ancial ruin of the country, and the driving out of. the capitalist. Now- thai the m-easurc has been In opera-, lion, facts have belied wild prophe- cies, for, according "to statistics, Great Britain's trade and finances have greatly increased. So far as revenue is concerned, the increase lias been such as to justify the'Chan- cellor in bringing In the State Insur- ance Bill, once more showing the re- gard Liberal governments have for tho welfare of the masses. This is in keeping with the Old Age Pensions Hill brought in by the same govern- ment, and endorses the opinion that Liberalism is for the salvation of the people. It Is well to Iwar this in mind In examining the atittudo of the Liberal press In Great Britain toward the question reciprocity now agitating Cans (In. (n the columns of the va.-i- tnm journals tto value of the measure fully endorsed In the knowledge that Liberalism in Camula stan.ln lor (ho common good, as it iloea In Hie Old Country. There Is not a HUHiiie'an of the annexation fear in any of em, and the Birmingham Hoat, published in the very-stronghold of Mr. Cham- berlain an-d tho Tariff Keforni n-jny, goes "out of-Us way to. say tlmt im- werial aentfmciU is stronger in. Ca- nada even than at the heart of the Umpire, and it will fake extremely pow-erful commercial interests to de- stroy It." Premier Asqnith and David Lloyd George have fully themselves to their own people and to the world at large, !n stand they took In i regard tp the Moroccan situation, as I true and have given the those who, for party purjnses, would think them otherwise. It is the same Imperialistic spirit that eati.wi them to look with approval on measure which will tend to the pros- perity of Canada, while in no wise loosening any of the links that bind her to tho Motherland. That this is the view of statesmen acknowledged great, and in whom confidence has n shown by their repeated return to power by a large electorate, ought to be strong enough to banish all the silly t-.iik pf annexation, and to show the fallacy ot Tory prophets, no mat- ter oh whitt special line they choose to prognosticate. If annexation is tn come about I according to these scere, to bp by force, but, by conimftrclal unii Once Canadians appreciate th? of tho American markets, the threat of depriving them of these markets by Jin abrogation of reciprocity is cteetned sufficient to promote.political union. Hut history tells ug that this has boon tried before, and lias fa tied, and history will, without doubt, re- Reciprocity is right in line with the principle of British freedom and in direct opposition to the principle of Chinese'restriction. It Is not hard lor common sense people to make their choice. The great financiers of the country have free trade with the I'nlted States in money. Thai is [heir commocTV- should they deny the free trade in his commodities?

K they cannot do better there thnn lli-oy cau go elsewhere to trade. There is no compulsion in the matter. Th-> moat inconsistent person In Ca- nada is the Tory who will cheer at tho iivontton of the name of Sir John A. Mncdonald, and then work and vote against reciprocity, which was Sir John's political aim for many years up to the'tlmo of his death. Are tho p-eoplo of this country go- ing to support opposition (hat is cre- ated only for opposition's sake? Not much. This is a time when the elec- tors will sink party affiliations and vote for reciprocity for tho of common sense mid good business. The Conservative professional spell- hinders have their nene lo tell UN? leading fanners and stock men of this country that they don't know their business when they arc supporting re- ciprocity. However, n-arve is'nil that is carrying the Tories through this campaign. They have no Free cok-e means a boom for the coal mining industry' of Alberta and UrlttsU Columbia. The smelters in the northwestern States will not go to the expens-e of bringing their coke frotn Pennsylvania if they can get it cheaper in Canada, as they certainly can when the duty of twenty per cent, is removed by Ihe adoption of the re- ciprocity agreement.

It is interesting to remember that ton years ago they fere five times that much. As Others See Us (Spokane Spokesman-Review.) Attempts are made by the Conserva- tives to inject side issues, as the assertion that America desires to an- nex Canada, or that American farm: will swamp Canadian farms with their products, and so to confuse tli-o vot- ers. But the Canadians know that he-sole issue is reciprocity, am' they decid-a on economic grounds; and with an eye to international friend- hip, ns well as national well-being. The Price of Cattlft (Calgary Albertan.) Mr. Bennett price of cattle, and referred at length to the brewery fed cattle. One of the most prominent cattle- men in Canada yesterday wired from Calgary to Wood Bros., Union Stock Yards, for prices of Western ranch cattle. Here is the answer, which refers to the Monday market: "Union Stock Yards, III., "August 29. "Montana top, two cars seven and quarter. General market slow. Wyo- ming-, four cars, seven cents. "WOOD BROS." j The price in Calgary is 4 1-4. Csl-1 dilating freight, that means a I ence of a head against the Alberta cattleman, and all because of the tar- iff wall. And let us say here that P.

Western Canadian cattlemen have lost a million a year on account of J.Ue lariti. They will gain this under These figures are correct. They cannot be questioned. I'O to 25 cents more for flax on the American side of that street than on the Canadian ]f the Liverpool ina.Ket or the markets of tho world control the price, how do you account tor that American Influence on Canada's Tariff (Montreal-Herald) Mr. Bordpn is warning Canada ag- ainst allowing in "the American trusts." Doc-3 he not know that [lie American trusts that fought reciproc- ity at are at .this mo- ment operating in Canada? Two weeks ago in the Union League Club, .Chicago, a "member, who is en- gaged in the lumber business, pointed to a. keen-faced man and remarked to a friend: "That man-solicited me to- day for a large subscription !o a fund he is raising to fight reciprocity in the Canadian elections, in ihe interest of the American lumberm-eu. I did not subscribe, because I know of his work in the Lorimor scandal. But the fund will be raised and the fight ag- ainst will now h-e carried on in Canada." [f Mr. Borden does not know of these co-operating-agencies hy is ig- norant of one of his chief allies in this el'sution campaign. Fake book agenia, fake nursery agents, fake im- plement agents, fakes of various kinds are at work Li the border coun- tvas sowing the fake seed of fear of annexation, and, it may be, using ev- en more potent arguments. These arc Mr. Horden's allies. They do tlva "hand picking" with the funds of the lumber trusts, while he grows hoarse warning against what will happen if foodstuff tnrats are not heat-en tack. They are playing Mr. Bordcn's game, but they play for the stakes, not for the game.

He passed a fair teat on the rules and machinery, but during nil of it the examiner was constantly lec- turing him as to the need of economy in the use of fuel and oil, so that hy the time he finished his examination It was pretty well on his nervea.
