It would he idle to endeavor to re- move the particular obsession of Mr. Meighen and of those who think with him. Preconceived prejudiced ideas are -hard to kill. However, al- lowing that the Prime Minister right, and accepting hia mistaken no- tion as to what free. trade brings iu its train, whether it be the free trade of the Simon Pure free traders or of all those who are free traders as de- fined ,by him. it would he well to bring an illustration of the relation of free trade to employment, as fur- nished by recent experience iu Great Britain. Protection, a s the protec- tionists view it, to create era ployinent by protecting the home mart ket from the hi flu i of foreign goods. It is a singular however, that in free trade Britain the months of last year in which imports were the .greatest were the months in which unemployment was in nearly every tuse the least. From oHicial figures issued by the Tlritish Board of Trado, giving the amount of imports ot foreign manu- i'actured goods into Great Britain, contrasted with the number of un- employed persons carried on the "live" register o! the Labor Exchang- es, it is to be noted that there was an inverse ratio, more or less, of increase and decrease of unemployment to the increase and decrease of the value of the imports referred to. It ib sin- gular, in considering these- figures, that in June last year, when such im- ports were highest, the number of registered unemployed was almost ut the low mark for the year, in January, with the imports at their lowest value for the ten months of the year for which the figures are available, ihe number of unemploy- ed was al its highest.

TARIFF AND REPRISALS Referring to the question of repris- als as discuBted in Canada and the Argentine over the proposed Emer- gency Tariff Bill in the States, the Great Falls Tribune, in no friendly spirit to the measure, proceeds to deal with the effects these will have if put into Jorce, as a warning to Americans with-whom the bill flnds favor. It says: "Ws might easily lose several dol lars of profit for every one the farm- ers who raise the stuff affected by this tariff could gain, 11 their fondest hopes were realized, by a reprisal tariff on the part of Canada against the goodi we now sell them. The same statement applies also to the Argentine republic. But that is not the whole. Jf the nations which now buy'our surplus wheat, and who will not be pleased to find that we have raised the price to them by a tariff embargo, chose to sit Into the same game they might put an import tax on our wheat which would compel those who want to buy wheat to seek it in Canada, Australia, India, or else- whera in. the world where no such em bargo tariff existed. That would prob ably make the price of wheat drop rapidly in this country qml our latte: case would be worse than our first Perhaps nothing of the sort would be done, but if it wero done we could nol Manitoba Fanners Endorse Crerar Nationalist Progressive Leader Addresses U.

Crerar was formally accepted by Manitoba farmers following his address to the annual' convention of the United farmers .here A resolution was passed endorsing his choice by the Canadian Council of Agriculture to head the new national policy, Mr. Crerar in his address attacked the government railway policy, and term- ed the acquisition of the National Railways aa a striking example of the result of public apathy in politics. He predicted that a movement would be begun aooa for the return of the railways to private ownership. He began his address by referring to the aims of the Great War Veter- .ans' association, which, he said, had m been largely misunderstood through- manSfv a -'out Canada..

On its result much depends in its relation to the welfare of the Union of South Africa. Beyond that, according to iho in which the election turns, it Trill serve1 to squelch or to encourage that Mitl-Brillsh feeling which has Its head in Ireland and is show- Iti head Jn a certain element in South Africa, outside the Knglish- population, in whose minds Mill raakllnt tUe memories of Iho' once started in motion may lead to all sorts of unexpected results. The primary fact stands out clearly tha the United States is just now the great creditor nation of the world All the world owes us money ami every day and week that passes they owe us more money because we are selling the rest of the world, witli few exceptions, more goods than we buy from them. They conuot pay us in gold because they have not got it They can only pay us in goods. Wheu we deliberately set out to bar their products from our markets, they are quite likely to retaliate in two ways. First they may bar our goods out of their markets. Second they may say to us inasmuch as you refuse to per- mit us to pay our debts to you in our products, and we have no other way of paying, you may wait for your set- tlement of accounts until you fnel dif- ferently about it. Unfortunately there is only one way of making a foreign debtor pay up .if his government does not make him pay, is collecting ths debt with an navy and that ifi the most expensive way In the to collect a debt. It has been done in the past it is true, but wo hardly think this nation would try it even if they lost Ihe debt entirely through lack of it." The Great Falls Tribune deals with what may be the Emer- gency Bill become law, with a clear vision and in a sane, and practical way. considering anything of talked-of reprisals, there is the fact, which the U. 3. will have to face, of the moral effect which the Emer- gency Tariff Hill will render in the matter of liquidating of debts owed the F.'s. by other countries to whom tho methods of- the ordinary trade channels for accomplishing this are barred. Iji this matter the adoption of the proposed tariff measure will bo ot the nature of, a boomerang. He spoke on the opportunities and duties before the farmer organiza- tions and said that throughout Can- ada they thei: presslon, the speaker said, has ori- ginated since their entrance into polities. The election of a farmer-labor gov- ernment In Ontario and the subse- iiuent election of farmer members to the federal house were events, he said, which have brought the move- ment under criticism from those who were used to control affairs.
