Loyalty and Potatoes TOR'i ARGUMENT is that X Cmidian lovalu is strengthen ed >by our present exclusion j fromithe-United-States markets..High tanfl iccoidmg to them breeds loj a1! c a" a c- of of, the articles included in the.reci-l procity agreement, this country sells more to. the-United States now, tariff! and all, than, any other country, and. j loyalty to ihe Mother Land is in the least. Along! this line. Mr. Carvell, P. for Carle- ton .County. N. B.. which borders the Stile _of. iTiainc, cites some interesL- ing'and very illuminative facts. toil County is famous for potatoes. So is the Aroostook district across the line, which, by the Ashburton Treaty of'lS42, was torn, from New Bruns wick and given to Maine.-Under nor- mal conditions, the nearest and. best market for New Brunswick is the Un- ited States, which now taxes potatoes bushel. .The total exports of Canadian potatoes in lflOfl-10 were bushels, valued at of Britain, admitting them .free, took, 5200 worth, Cuba and the United Siar.es worth. Commenting, on this Mr. Carvell re- cently' said 'During the last twenty years from my constituency alone, about 1. 000.'of our very best-.farmers have sold out and gone, not to Western Ca- nada, not to cities of the Un- ited States, but. just across the imag inary boundary line, and -today are prosperous and happy.' These men have had the advantage of the Am- erican market under the same condi- tions as we shall if' this agreement goes As an illustration of u 'at ine you that on ihe first day of July last f myself counted" fortyitwo Canadians who are now resident farmers of the United States, and who crosed over to a Do- minion Day celebration in their auto- mobiles. I wonder how soon the Mar- will be able to enjoy such a luxury. In the near future, un- der the benefits of tbis agreement, our New Brunswick farmers will be able" to sell .their potatoes at the samp profit our Aroostook friends have enjoyed in the past.
