"We will not agree to make these free until the Canadian provinces will take oft tlieir regulations, they said. We told them that this was no good to us, and that is where matters stand "We have thought it necessary to get an agreement that on both -sides there should be no vexatious regula- tions interfering with the smoothness of the agreement and by regulation if Canada or U. S. interferes thc other country the. right to be able to protest and .thus there is machin- ery for having all objectionable de- partmental regulations irodified and removed." Fish Duty Free other question had relation to the fish problem. Canada has never enjoyed tire privilege of sending fish into the U, B, free. There were some ;aid, who thought that U. S. should be allowed to fish in Canadian waters. The" government, however, thought this was an unfair agreement to which they could -not agree and so an agreement had to hft made under which n'sh would enter the U. S. free.
