"Tho reolpronlty agreement," he declared, "Is one of the greatesi blessings tills oountrj- cotild have. It has already been an immense advertisi.'ment for the West.

"I sincerely believe that inside of two years after the new treaty goes Into effect," be continued, "that Letli Hirldge, geographically sitimted as It Is vlll be one of the most important ^vholeBa]e distributing centres in Alberta, becoming eventually a second Inneapolls.

The I'lii'Hl ?iaii;s is a com-I)oliiitj naiiou with Canada. Reciprocity or e;;ci\a,nge of goods between a liutjcher and a tailor was the rishf kind of reciprocity, but It is jtiat as tallnc-ions for Canada to have reciprocity wifji ..\merica in products w^hich both cuiinii-ios proiliice as it would be for a buti-her tu have reciprocily with a biirclier or a tailor with a tailor.

I'he chairman said it wub up to the meeting to decide, and Mr. Austin, sec-ended by A.. V. Gibbons, moved that the ipeecltea be Itnuted to ten min-urea. U Ij. Aaqulth moved an amendment, which was Beconded by B. Hagell, that the limitation be twenty minutes. The �mcndmmt, 4>eliig put, carried. David H. Elton S. S. Dunham remarked tliar, ac(;ord ing to .Mr. Klton the agreement wiped out the tariff on manufactured goods while if thhey listened close they cotihl hear an echo from the fanners complaining because farm Implements and other manufactures are at ill protected. He also took lo taslt some other arguments by the previous siieakor, particularly in regard to the history of tlie abrogation of the reciprocity treaty between the two coimtries in nu mt^^ , �>, f3tion should bo debated from a national rather than a proTlnoial or local standpoint. Groat Pritain, he ahowed, was Canada's largest customer, while the Dominion pur-chaaed more goods from the T'nited tJtatea than from tho Motherland, 'the proposed agreement would te id ratbor Constipation is Aa root of many forms of ickness and of an endless amount of misery.

VIce-Prooident Cunningham Vice-President E. A. Cunningham spoke briefly. He noticed that Mr. i''!eldlng would soon Buhiuit at Ottawa the most sall.sfactory budget ever submitted. Was that budget the result of reciprocity? He referred to a recent speech of .Tmncs J. Hill, the I .'\merican railroad uiugnate, who advised the Americnn people to grasp the opporlunlly offered them on the ground that they would never have the chance again, and Cannda would be drawn closer than ever to Great Britain. Dr. W. S. Galbralth Dr. Galbralth followed, regretting that he was noi an orator like Mr. Elton, and could not treat the meeting to the flights of cloiiuence that Jlr. Elton had. What he had to say were' ! cold hard facts, and if they appealed 'to the reason of the meeting he would i be satisfied. Canada had early learn-ihe advantage of conservation of nat-! ural resources whi:h meant In the case i of lumber, that forests would be re-j produced as Sist as they were used. 'The Indian was tho typical conservator �of the kind advocated by tliose who (Opposed reciprocity, on tho grounds that it would he denuding Canada of her natural rosourcos, and it they followed the lead of those who so argued the habits they would develop would be those of the Indian. He could not see lliat, if coal mines were opened up and developed, nnfl tho product sold to a friendly nation, that any sin would bo crlmnnl^ed. When he first camo to l.efbbridge, a railroad had lust been buiit liy a Canadian toin-puny, the A. K- ii 1., for the'O.^w of taking ooal into the States. If that was a traitorous act, as opponents of reciprocity would maintain, It should never had been allowed. Mr. ISIton had argued as though the proposed agreement took tho tariff off manufactures. Those present who had studied the agreement In the slightest knew that the reduction of the tariff on manufactures was practically nil. Ho saw no reason why the Nova Scotia coal mines should not supply coal to New York and Boston, the Alberta and British Columbia mines to the Western States, or Pennsylvania to Ontario. If the agreement gave better prices to tho farmer, the farmer would have a greater margin to spend, and all would benefit. John J. Cameron lohn .1. Cameron spoke of the effect lo Hie .Maritime Pi'ovlnces. Ho thought the tendency of the agreement would be to divert Western C:anada's export trade through American ports at the expense of Canadian ports. 8. J, Shepherd S. J. Sliepherd traced briefly the history of reciprocity sentiment. Since ISiJi) it was uudoubtodly a ftict that all tho leading men of Canada had been of tiio opinion that reciprocity belween Canada and tlie I'nited States; would bo a good thing for Canada. 'I'he .Mackemdo and Macdonald had sent envoys to Wasnliigton lo no.iiotlate reciprocity, as did the l-aiirier government in l.S'.i8, but without any siiccess. It'did not taatter wliat the political stripes of the men were, they were all agreed that reciprocily would he a good thing. After ISli.S the Canadian government con-si.lerod th;u Canada had gone lo Washington often enough, and the ne.xt move should come .'roin I.'ncle Sam. l.asi year the .'Vmerican government inllinaled that it was prepared to negotiate. The Canadian government said it was prepared to discuss the matter, and the resulr. was tho pro-P0:!ai now bcfor(^ the governments of the t wo countries. He poiiiied out, that the agreement, if i! v/tts unsatisfactory to eillier party it could be ai)rogaled within a few months from any time. He urged, that as reasonalile men, they should favor at least giving Hie proposals a trial. In the West all are inlerested in a.grl-/j cylturo and the dictum that what benefits tlie farmer benefits all Is one that cannot be refuted. The farmers' deputation that went to Ottawa last fall knew what the farmers wanted. They did not get all they wanted for the government, representing as it doi-s all classes of people and not the farmers alone, decided if possible to follow a middle course. The agree-mcut is almost in toto an agreement for the exchange of natural products, leaving manufactures out almost altogether. If the agreement helped agriculture, mining, lumbering and fishing. It would help and be a benefit to everybody in the country, including the manufacturers. Tho latter need not worry for (ho agreement would mean more people to buy their goods. Regarding the fishing industry of the Maritime Provinces, ho ;hought It would be an excellent thing for them for ihoy have been waiting for years to got into, the large markets of New York, Roston and the Eastern States. Regarding the effect on the great, financial corporations, the best Indloa-lion is the stock market. Since the negotiations had commenced forty of the leading stocks listed on the Montreal exchange had Increased in value an average of 2.i5 per cent., and one of these was the Canadian Pacific liailwny. The people who own the stocks of these companies are evidently not icarfii] of the results of the aareenient. The agreement, he thought wo'il.i have no serious effect on the relniions with the mother land. He look it that the most patriotic citizen is tlie prospering citizen, and the most unpatriotic citizen, one who Is not hapiiy and conlentod. Lastly he believed that If the agreement is entered into it will be one of the greatest guarantees for the permanent of the world that have been enacted.

If not �ead to The Plnex Co., Toronto, Ont result would have iio effect on tho party standing at Ottawa. Arguing that the stable fiscal policy that has been in effect for years had been approved by the people at the elections of 1900, 1004 and 1908. he criticized the government for planning to make a change in tlie fixed policy without subinitting it lo the people. He then at consideriible length elaborated on the development j and necessity of maintaining tlie channels of trade eas* and west instead oi north and south, and declared that Canada's natural mar.Uet Is not the United Statep, but Europe on one side and China and .lupaii on the olher. The United States by means of scientific and intensified farming would soon reach the condition of Germany and would produce food stuffs enough for nine hundred niillioiis of people. Her exports consequently �VNould be sufficient to feed f-Ou millions of people. She would � consequently be for all time a competitor of Canada. On the other hand Great Britain with a population of 45 millions produced' food enough for only five millions, and Oermany with a population ot 65 millions produced sufficient for only 40 millions. Gerniauy and Great Britain eonsetiuently are the natural markets of Canada and the United States. He went at length Into the effect of the agreement on agriculture, saying that It would set a premium on poor farming and would lead to all the mill-lug and all the meat packing for the Canadian and export market being done in the United States. Instead of P. Burns and Gordon, Ironsides and Fares controlling the meat market it would be controlled hy Armour and Swift, and they would not even maintain offices in Canada. The farmers when they went to Ottawa did not demand free trade in their produce but the abolition of the duty on farm implements. If the duty on the latter had been abolished instead of the present agreement he, Mr. Ives, would have had no objection. He ridiculed the idea that the farmers needed pampering, declnring them to be already the most prosperous people in the West-"In heller shape than any of US." He ridiculed the grgumenf that reciprocity would reduce the cost of livln.g. If that argument is -urged those who urge it must drop the argument that it will benefit the farmer. He concluded iiy urging the vital necessity of stability in fiscal matters, and this is entirely lacking if llie agreement can be terminated by either party on six months' notice. O. D, Austin O. D. Austin said that one thing had struck him most forcibly, but it bad not been mentioned as yet, was that it is t^iite possible for both parties Co benefit from a deal such as tho reciprocily agreement. The opponents ot the agreement In Canada argued that the Americans are reaping all the benefits, and the opponents of the agreement in the States are arguing; that Canada is getting by far the best \ of the deal. As a matter ot fact, the bargain is advantageous lo both. In regard to the argument that raclpro-l city would mean the swallowing up of Canada by the United States, he declared if that was possible the States would have torn down their tariff wall long ago. He argued thn; transportation will follow naiiiriil channels regardless of tariffs. W. A. Buchanan, M. P. P. W. A. Buchanan said that he had � not Intended to say anything, but from ! the fact that he occupied the posltloi:: he did in public life, it he did not say j anything he might bo mlounderstoo 1 ! He said he wished that It were pos sible to take the tariff question oui ' of politics so that it could bo discuss j ed on its merits alone. A great many | members of both parties in parlii;-raeut, bo knew, would vote not according to their convictions, hut as they are told to f.o for party reasons. He did not i.'.ean to say abolish the party system altogether, but merely separate it from this question. His stand and opinions in the matter -.vorc probably wtil known and he was not going to waste time recounting them, for he was fairly well convinced that every member had decided which way he was going to volo before he came to tho meeting. It was said that the agreement was going to hurt some industries. It may possibly hurt one or two, but he believed that It would benefit the great mass of the people. Refuting the argument that reciprocity was going to chock the flow of American InduBtrles to Canada, he mentioned the case of the Oliver Plow' Co. This firm had planned to erect in Hamilton, Ontario, a factory to supply Us Canadian buainoss at a total cost tor buildings and machinery of $400,000 before reciprocity was announced. The goods manufactured by this company are goods the tariff on which is reduced more than the tariff on any other manufactured article. This comjiany's name was being frequently used iti the discission ot the reciprocity agreement, and to set all minds at rest the company the other day wrote to Hamilton papers saying that they had decided to increase their plant $200,000 over the amount first intended. .Air. Buchanan argued that as the farmers ot the U. S. were against the arrauKement and the majority of the farmers of Canada were seemingly in f.ivor, it indicated that the American farmer was getting the worst of the deal. He also accepted the statements ot such authorities as George Lane, Hon. A. .1. JIcLean and Levi Marker that reciprocity would Increase the value "of cattle and sheep-very IniDortant Industries in Alberta ' No other speakers had anything to say and after requesting that all those not members ot tho Board retire so thjt there would be no difficulty In ' counting the vote, the president put' the resolution which carried by 44 . votes to 2S.
