Duty on Implements Turning to tariff matters Mr. Parsons said It was understood when the government was formed that the aglla-llon of the wostorn grain growers for the abolition of the tariff would not Ix! conllnned during the period of the war. This, he said, had been iloiiloil by Home of the grain growei-s ditritig the sesaloii Just ended, but a newspaper report of an address by Hon. T. A. ! (.'rerar at Winnipeg In the election campaign quoted him as stating "the tariff is not an Issue at present. 1 feel just as strongly on the iiuestion of the tariff as any man. 1 have not wacrlflced these views In Joining a Union governniont-. The tariff i.s not the Issue at present. The great outstanding issuo l8 the winning of the war." After referring to the fact llial the Toronto Olobe had in view of this statement described the tariff situation as a "truce" Mr. Parsons said: 'The raanufacturers, thnrnfore. accepted this view and would have respected the same throughout it others had done so. We have toimd, however to day in the western provincial log-islatures. resolutions have liccn passed asking for the removal ot duty on agricultural Implements as a so-culled 'war measure". In farmers' papers and other organs there has been carried on a constant Tigltatlon against the tariff and denunciation of, the nianufactnrors. Grain growers recently have challenged mauufaclurers to come out openly and declare themselves upon the tariff' question. Much as we would have preferred that there be no consideration of this question during the war, as all our attention should be fixed upon our national obligations with respect thereto, yet some measure ot action has been forced upon us and it is, therefore, necessary lo deny many ot the tinfair erroneous and misleading .statements that have been made for the purpose ot trying to prejudice the minds of the public against manufacturers and manufacturing interests of this country. "Our statements should be prefaced with (he remark that the manufacturers of this country, along with all other clasees, tire vitally interested In the success of the farmers and will not be saliatied untilitho fullest possible measures looking .to their betterment, and removal of any inequalities or unfair burdens, are accomplished. It surely is not necessary to do this, however, at the expense of other classes and at the risk ot ruination �t our great industrial falKic. built up with great care and national efficiency." No Demand For Reciprocity After declaring that there is no more demand for roi^iprocity at the pre.sSnt time than there was when that Issue was defeated at the polls and quoting from President Tail's statement that reciprocity "would only make Canada an adjunct of the United States." Mr. Parsons said it would appear from the propaganda being waged against the manufacturers of Canada, "thai the chief view presented 'that the tariff (k retained solely to the benofit of manufacturers to opnresc all other classes ot the people, the farming oomnuinity in particular." * "It is. therefore, quite evident." he said, "that the time has come when the manufacturers ot this country can no longer keep silent, either in their own interests, the interests of labor, or the groat national Interests of this country. Must Contult Labor "The time has arrived when we must all face this matter in a sincere and broad minded fashion. It surely cannot bo simply a matter of give and 1 take as between raanufneturer/) on the i one hand and grain growers on tlie otlier.

Wo desire most earnestly to co-operate with our follow producers and to show them in the frankest manner our problems and to bo shown by them thoir handicaps, in order that we may ^ each of us see wliere changes could l/" possibly be made that would be ot mutual help and benefit. "We would, however, be altogether insincere and dishonest did wO not state in general terms that^if there is one thing more certain than another, it is that manutacturcrs could not possibly exist in this country without the same measure of protection which the tariff affords them. The two stand or tall together. Speaking broadly, Canada must choose between the tariff with manufacturers on the one hand, or wlth^free trade without manufacturers on the other; '.he issue cannot bo dodged and should not be clouded. "At this particular time in our national history when employment for returned soldiers is going to be a matter of paramount importance and when the largest .possible revenue must be obtained in all directions to carry our gigantic war debt, the question uifiy fairly be asked: "Is the farnilng industry lauTuish-ing to such an extent that In order to help it out there must be destroyed, or even impaired, its fellow producer, the manufacturing industry of this country?' In tact the weakening of the latter from our standpoint would mean partial destruction of the former. both fine and inipri.-iniiniont.
