The Kingston Whig is to hand with a report of a meeting held at Wolfe Island, Ont.. where the electors placed themselves as being in fa- vor of the reciprocity agreement and opposed to the stand taken in tbe W. Edwards. The Whigs report says: House 'by their representative. Dr. J. "The building was filled to the doors. Addresses in opposition to the reciprocity, -agreement were given by Dr. Edwards, M.

"As to the manufacturer and hie complaint the farmers all- ibai i bey should have a further, cut in the cost of their machin- ery. 'Sure we came from several in the audience. "Reciprocity would bring about a lower price for the farm, ma- chinery, and why should not the farmer take advantage of it? "Mr. Grimshaw, at, the close of his address, considered that it was an opportune time for the secur- ing of the feeling of the meering on the question, and this 'was taken before he resumed his seat He asked for a vote of all who were opposed to tbe stand taken by Dr. Edwards on the reciprocity question, and almost ihe entire audience, with the exception of about half a dozen, or perhaps less, gave their vote in opposition 10 the stand taken by Dr. Ed- wards, at the same time giving their approval of the reciprocity agreement. "Cheers followed, and it was some time before order was re- stored. It was one of tbe biggest nights in the history of Wolfe Is- land, and one long to be remem- bered. "Air. D. D. Rogers said a great deal has been said about loyalty in discussing Ihe reciprocity ques- tion, but he wished to say that if Canada entered into the reciproci- ty agreement it would not. at all interfere with our loyalty.
