Tralnt, Sir Wilfrid's Effective Answer CANADA'S LOYALTY to tl! Motherland will -wane; annex ation tp the United States peril to the British preference Slave all .been charged up to reciproc itv by its enemies. Xot one of these possibilities of tlie antfs has a leg to stand upon. The Liberal party, b> Its' deeds in the past, has proven that its record in Its treatment of the Blother Country surpasses the Conser- vative party. Lioerals are Just as loyal they don't talk so much about the Conservatives. They do not want annexation any more than Conservatives do, and as for the Bri- tish preference-, it was originated by the'Liberalfl, and increased -by the Liberal party, and "it Is still a feature of party pol- icy. Mr. Bor'den, in his entire West- ern made little of the British preference, and pointedly declared that he was not In favor of increas- ing it. These pictured dangers of reciproc- ity were effecthelj uddied b> Sir Wilfrid Laiirier in a speech before the 'Constitutional Club in London, England The speech, we feel, is worthy- of reproduction, as it meets these arguments of .the Conserva- tives 30 well. Here it is; "You have has gone deep into my what we have in view is the welfare of each one of us, whether here or coming fronva is best for the Empire as a whole. It is fourteen yeaVs since we in Canada introduced the system of a preferential tariff to 'Great any conditions cheers) be- lieving in "our heart of hearts that the poliev was sound economical! j, and-that it was sound politically, and thatHt was In the best Interests of the British Empire. We have had no to repent of our action, (Cheers.) The-test has been the test of fourteen years, and the more we have' had of Jt :the 'better we have liked it (Cueflrij) The preference gaie was 12 12 per cent It worked-.well.. We increased it to 1; and better. We increased ft to: 25, and it worked still better. (Cheers.) Our: trade, which had had ;been dwindling, has doubled and trebled..and we have hoisted the pol- icy of our British preference to the top of the mast (Cheers It has flown there for fourteen yearsi and It is.fhere to stay, whatever you do or do riot in thia country 'But I read in the eyes of'some of those who now do me the honor of listening to me, a question which has not 'been formulated because the oc- casion does not permit. Let me an- ticipate that question and answer it. I see in the eyes of many around me the.question: 'But whilst you talk of British preference, is not Canada, by the reciprocity agreement with the United States, giving a blow, and a fatal blow, to that British preference? I have not come here to talk British' politics. Apart from that considera- tion. I say that for such -a I will not call It a charge, but for such a doubt there is not, in my hum- ble judgment, jhe slightest .cause of alarm. I want you to remember, that the 'agreement made with the'-IJnited States is not a solemn treaty car- ried out under the .strict rules of a protocol, and signed in the first in- stance 'by the King. It Is simply an arrangei lent, signed by the Finance Minister of, the Dominion and the Mecretary of State of the United States, 'under which ,if the duties on classes of Canadian natural products alone.are reduced, or abol- ished ;In the United States, a similar course' rill be adopted with certain goods entering" Canada from the Unit- ed atstes. Rut there no time lim- it to the treaty, and it can ,-be revised next year if need at any time which suits the convenience of the respective governments. There is uo occasion for alarm upon tha score. When we are told that w have chained our liberty and paralyz ed our I say you hav only to look at the corresponded and you will see that we can come any other policy that may meet ou case in the future instead of tha which may suit us today. "I come to another objection which a remark that reaches my ear lead me to: 'Are you not by this policj leading to the annexation of Canada by Again, I saj that I beiievfiUn the party system There.are.friends of mine here.on the Conservative aide; of Canadian poll tics who'condemn the policy of re'ci procity with all.their be lieve that It Is wrong. I find no faul' with them. Canada, thank God, is a free country, and they are welcome to their views. But when they de dare-that this principle of reciprco Ity IB wrong. I it is "not. But when I am told that this.agreement, f carried out, would lead to annexa tlon. 1'think11 have the right to say that I do not believe it. If I did be- lieve it, I should advocated the policy which I have advocated My course would have been very dif- lerent from what it has been. Whilst gHe libertj to amone to say that he policy we have been adopting U wrong, I take the liberty in this coun try, where freedbm of opinion exists, to say that T believe-in my heart of hearts .that the charge IB not war- ranted. The charge is that if we have a certain number of years of this policy we'shall, have free trade, and that when :'the .advantages of free trade are appreciated'annexation will follow. But let me appeal to history. In a treaty, negotiated by Lord Elgin .which lasted for twelve that was at a period when the Provinces -were scattered. When the treaty was repealed it was a severe blow to Canada. But what did our ancstors'.do? Did their loyalty falter; did anyone think that it would not stand the blow? What they did wss to form a Canadian Federation and stand up and say that they would not be the United States. (Cheers.) In the words of a French poet, .'Ou le pere a passe, passera the. [line has openefl the father, the son will, go through.' It may be. that we shall Buffer, for what we do, but-T cannot Admit the argument that if we are permitted to sell our goods to the United States, in the United States, we shall be compelled to sell the honor or allegiance to our country. In all these matters we are guld ed bj three purposes m and let me put them before you. The first Is that our efforts will be to trade with the mother country in pre- ference to any other country, (Cheers.) to buy from her in preference to any other country, we want to sell to her in preference to any other country. That the first does it follow that because we want preference with the mother country, we want to trade with her alone? No want to sell .first to Great Britain; then we want to trade with all countries in the second purpose. And our third principle IB. that with the priv- ileges and advantages shall give to the mother country we must no more think, of .discriminating against England than we should think of cut- right arm. These the principles thtit animate, us. In this matter, as In all other on all occasions, Canada will be prepared to do Us md Its wbole duty, by old England." OUR POINT OF VIEW See Kly fly.
