Hon. A. J. McLean Declares Reciprocity is a Good Thing Ottawa, Mar. 5,-"There is only one sentiment In the province of Alberta regarding reciprocity, so far as I am aware, and that is that it Is destined to be the turning point in our history, arid" the making of our Canadian West, the granary of the world in every respect." said the Hon. A. J. McLean, Provincial Secretary of Alberta, wlio, with the Hon. C. R. Mitchell, Attorney-General and Minister of Education, of the same province, arrived in Ottawa today. "Although I have been away, three weeks," said Mr. McLean. ' "from what I know of the feeling that existed before I left, I am sure that Mr. Sifton's speech will not make the slightest difference. The farmers of the province, Liberal and Conservative alike, are for the agreement. Party politics play no part in the reciprocity question In out province. "To a man, my oolleaguep in the Cabinet o-' Alberta are foe reciprocity in the fullest sens; intended by the Government. There was never a dissenting voice heard In our councils on the question. The Legislature does not meet until November next, �0 that we will probably not have a chance to add a resolution in favor of reciprocity from our province as a whole before the terms are In effect."

OPPOSITION TO UQUOR STORE Taber Board of Trade Votes Against Reciprocity Agreement (Special to the Herald) Taber, March 6.-At a meeting of the Board of Trade Friday night, attended by about 26 members, by a majority of one, a resolution opposing the reciprocity agreement as not being In the best interests of Canada as.a whole, was passed. It was moved by Dr. Leech and seconded by Alex Campbell. There was a long and Interesting discussion on the question. At the service at WeBtmlneter Methodist church last evenlnf the congregation organized their opposition to the granting of a wholesale liquor license in North Lethbridge, application for which Is being made. It was decided to engage a lawyer to see that the proper steps were taken to put a stop to the granting of the license and a subscription was taken to cover the necessary expenses. The people in Xorth l,ethbrid.ge arc quite exercised over the possibility of a liquor store being opened there and there will be strenuous and determined opposition. A subscriber of the Dally Herald writes as follows about the action of the Board: "It is bad for this town that a few old Tories happened to be In the majority and misrepresent the sentiment of this wheatj coal and stock district. If the question was up for a general vote it would carry three to one."
