Favored Nation Treaties WHATEVER may have been the position of this country with regard to the "favored na- tion" treaties. Sir-Wilfrid Lander, hy securing the willing consent of the British government lo have trade treaties made subject to repudiation by any of the overseas dominions, affecting the other parts of the Empire, has overcome the diffi- culty. In all matters of commercial treaties, the British government has agreed to give the overseas domin- ions a free hand, and any treaty made by part of the Empire is not binding on any other part. When tbe opposition raised the cry that reclproo if adopted, would compel this country 'to .give to other nations, hav- ing; treaties will: Great the same terms as gli- en the United States, the took. file', .stand that they would nol agreement reached al the' Imperial has Justified that: contention.

This question, no doubt, is bother- ing Mr. Herron more than anyone else just now. He has elated publicly that he will support the reciprocity agreement when it comes to a vote in the House, and does so because his constituents are in favor of the pact pact, and will be bou to by ten to one.

PREMIER ASQUITH'S SPEECH AT THE OPENING OF THE IMPERIAL CONFERENCE W Widening HEN the city puts in Ita street railway system the advantage of Us fine-wide streets will be more apparent than ever. Now is the time for the city to take steps to have nil streets that are likely to be business streets during the next fifty years or more, made" as wide as tbe present business streets. The city :of Toronto has had a great deal of trouble because of its narrow streets, and recently the city council, passed a bylaw by which all bulltliiigs .hereaf- ter erected on business streets wil! be built six feet in from the present street line. In the course gf time there will be a sis foot strip on each side of the streets, which can he used Tor street -purposes and the city Will not be forced to pny the enormous am ounts of money that would be paid if they proceeded to widen the streets to the required widtb at. once. This course might well be adopted by the council of this city. The greatest ne cesilty of street widening at presenl ''.is on Thirteenth street. North (West miniter road, north of the vhich le only sixty-six feet wide, while the other business streets of wide. he. city are one htmdred feet int bmfneBs thoroughfare, and each year .will become more important.

Yet yo.ll have here n political or e firm belief that in his reign the Bri- tish Grown will continue with unla.rn- tsued lustre to be the centre and the symbol of our Imperial unity.

There are. two things the self-gov- ;rning British Empire wliicli nre un- rjue in tlie history of great political aggregations.
