Ottawa, March 25.-The tiberals at the conclusion of the budget ' debate offered to withdraw their amftndment if the government would conSent to withdraw its proposition to -dtcrease the British preference. It-was a clear cut offer, aad had the government accepted it, there would .have,-been no vote on the budget. The .iaot, that Miey refused indicates, that they are more desirous of protecting the Canadian manufacturer against oompeti-tioft with the Mother Country than they are of keeping - Britain's trade active. ^Instead, of assisting ^in the development of Britain's trade with Canada they hamper itv.a^.'the very moment they are securing the money to run Canada's affairs from the British government. It.was on this point the parties disagr.eed., Hon. G. P. Graham shaved the path to unity but the government. jre{used to take it. Drop the increased bhri;ier'to, British trade, he said,- and werWill drop the amendment,- The gpyernment remained silent and then there was a vote. The Liberals voted.-td.-retiin the present British preference ; i\ie Tories voted to add to the difaculties of British trade in Canada. OFFER FROM THE LIBERAL^ It is worth quoting the closing words of Mr. Graham's speech, in which the offer, of a wthdrawal of the Iiiberal amendment was made. Here is what he said: Hon. gentlemen have argued tha.t the preference is being maintained. In other words, they are givihg Great Britain only one black eye wton thev could have' given heir the other black eye.'The fact remains that-to the extent of five per cent; it will be more difficult to-do business with Great Britain after this proposed legislation becomes law than it was before.'Let me put it this way to the minister. Great Britain is giving us $150,000,-000, the interest oh which at .44 per cent, is $6,500,000. We import from the motherland about $133,000,000 worth of goods yearly, the duties on which at 5 per cent, would amount to $6,650,000. There is -therefore, a slight difference between the interest we are going to pay the motherland on the money we are getting from her and the value of the barrier which we are placing against British trade. That is, we say to the motherland : wf; want your money and we will pretend to pay your interest, but we will put up a barrier, against your trade wliich will enable us to. get the money back .from you. At a time when ye have as pur Allies the great nations of' the world-r-G-reat Britain is not.our ally ;-Great Britain is ourselves-is it a time to take such a course as this ? The world' is largely controlled by sentiment.' Is it a time for the � Dominion of Canada, whose men are fighting side by .side with the sons of the Mother Country, to put up trade barriers against Great Britain, who is supplying iis -with money. The Minister of Finance himself told us. that we could not get our money except by the consent of the British Government at a time when our sons aw lighting side by side with Tommy Atkins in the trenches, is that a time for the'daughter to put up a trade barriier against the great mother ot the household ? Even it my hon. friend were right-and I do not admit for a moment that he is-are the interests of Canada which might be served by these proposals paramount to the great object lesson that would be given to the world at the present time, if, while compelled to raise taxation against the goods coming from other countries, we should not increase the taxation against Britain, who is bearing so large a part of the burden of the world's war at the present time ? The.Finance Minister ought to see to it - .and this is the gist of the amendment of my right honorable leader-^that the tariff against Great Britain be hot raised at the present time. I have hot cpnsiilted with my leader, but i think I am Mfe In making the proposition that'If the Finance Minister will, agree not to raise ,this barrier against trade with Great Britain at the present time, we will withdraw the .proposed amendment. This would get rid of the bogey raised, by the Prime Minister today, With regard to want of confidence In the g'pvernment There is no difference between us at all as to the necessities of prgviding Ipr the war. There is no dilTcrence between hon. gentlemen oh this side arid !/-.lK)n.-. gentlemen on the Mher side of the House in i.thei.deBlrfi to stand shoulder to shoulder .-wi'th the mother land in this great conflict, We have beside us some of. between the difierent owner's. ;,^he "question has been surrounded by good deal of difficulty and trouble; and^inasmuch as the Indians are getting quite a reyeniie under the existing temporary arrangement, we have not seen lit to disturb it. "We are quite open, ho-^yever, to take into con--sideration the suggestion of the hon. member. We have consulted the Indian inspectors ; and they have consulted the Indians, and I understand that, the great preponderance of the Indians present at the meeting, were against that policy. I do not know-Whether that was their view at the qutset or ' not, but I am sure the 5Jiief inspector would not be guilty of attempting tp stampede the Indians *to an opinion that they had not held-ju-the first place.
