It Is true-of the nation's loyalty-- the-'Pooket 18.' These are the men who haife no fears for their own loyalty by reason of their trade relations with the United States, but who are suspicious of the loyalty of the farmers and artisans under similar conditions. Take, for instance, Sir Edmund Walker. The bead of a great financial institution, he does net hesitate to take the hard-earned' money of Canadian rarmerB and arlisans to lend to build up United States Institutions to compete with those ivitose money he !� iislijg. "Why? 9eca;tsr it i.* profitable to do so. Til*! loy�:iy of the common people, .on. tlie olhc- hand, is In their haarts. pind not in Ibeir pockets. As (Canadiang. ihej love ever.v foot of C'anada.

The drying operation Is performed with a SO per cent, towel, and the combing of his hair with a ;!5 per cent. comb. He adjusts a :'h per cent, collar, after hunting for a :Jh per cent, collar biiiton. and probably finds a 25 per cent, pantaloon button iiilaaing, necessitating the tighten-j ing of his 35 per cent, suspenders.' The request for the replacing of .the button in the proper place is met by his wife in a :>5 per cent, corset and other highly protected clothing. She does tiie necessary stitching on a SO per cent, sewing machine, with 25 per cent, thread, the final act being per I formed with a SO per cent, needle, assisted by a 80 per cent, thimble. He adjusts his 10 per cent artificial teeth aiid then descends to lighl'"a fire in the 25 per cent, stove with 26 per cent, charcoal, which he carries in a 2h jier cent. pail. I^e may, perhaps, use some ItocUefeiler SO per cent, coal oil lo assist matters. He then sits down on in the application of employers for man, along wfth a marked increase in the applications from men for work.' Further it says: 'The family of the usually well employed worker is being thrown into the group of these in want, and it has resulted in not a few cases, in the disruption of the family." , , The Now York correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, and KngUsh tariff reform newspaper, writing on April 7, 1�0$, states that 'Slore than 4,750,000 trade unionist mechanics aiid labor-i era ware unemployed in the Inited Statea, 750,000 'being resident in New York State alone.' .Mr. .1.

That Is something devoutly to be wished. The worker will have two markets Instead of one 10 buy from. Rents are lower, the more landlords there are trying to obtain tenants. Food prices will be lower, the more food owners there are trying to obtain purchasers. Turn About is Fair Play For years the protected Interests have had things all their own way.
