'"Here," said Mr. Sifton, at a great and enthusiastic meeting In support of the Ottawa programme at Winnipeg, on the eve ot th^ general election of 189G, "was a fact to consider. II had been stated by a gentleman conversant with the facts that the Massey-Harrls binder, which sold In Glasgow for |75, cost In Winnipeg ?140. Here the Canadian farmer was unduly burdened as against his competitors. The great competitors of the Canadian farmer were, amongst others, those'In the Argentine Republic, and In that country they were liuying their machines for about half what the Canadian farmer had to pay for them. Another competitor was Australia, and an Implement was shipped from ToJont.a to Sydney, Australia, over a line heavily i subsidized by our money, and laid down there at a freight rate as low, ior even lower, tlian that on an implement from Toronto to Winnipeg," "The Canadian manufacturer, when he Imports his iron and steel," continued Mr. Sifton, "has to pay a duty on I it, which is, of course re^iald to him I by tho Canadian farmer. But when he j.shlps that machine to a foreiipi coun-jtry he ggts a rebate on that duty on Lthe material, so that our farmer is paying taxes to allow the manufacturer to sell cheap machinery to his most Keen competitors." llow the Liberals would deal with the grievance described in the Winnl peg speech, Mr. Sifton explained In �the same election campaign at Delor-alne, Manitoba.
