There was, he said, no occasion for him or any other man in the West to sit at the feet of Eastern Gamellele and learn anything in the way of loyalty to the British Empire. Reciprocity, he believed, sofar from meaning anything in the way of dismamberment of the British Empire would rather tend to further cementing of the Empire and to the consolidation of the Anglo-Saxon interests the world over. He urged the adoption of the resolution not only in the material interests of Saskatchewan and^the Dominion, but of the Empire as a whole. Premier Scott, who followed likewise strongly supported the resolution. He referred to Mr. Sifton's actions on reciprocity as a desertion of Liberal principles and expressed the view that at no distant date the present member for Brandon would be found leading the Conservatives of Canada with the high protectionists and the interest dictating the policy of what would bo first and foremest and for all time a protectionists party. formed him that everything Is ready to provlda tha necMsary accomnioila-i tion.
