NumberllS CONCILIATION BOARD RESUMES ITS SESSION LOCAL BANK MANAGER TRANSFERRED TO EAST RAILWAY ACROSS THE TOP OF THE CONTINENT RESIGNATION OF CITY ENGINEER ACCEPTED Mr. Turriff Puts its Case Before the House of Commons BORBEN Man Who Nominated him Criticises his Position on Reciprocity (Special to the Ottawa, May last Liberal word in the reciprocity debate was J. G. Turiffs message from the West in the Commons tonight. Vervillc iil speak for the labor interests, and further continuance of the debate will be relegated to obstructionists in the opposition ranks. Whether the Prime Minister can get to the imperial con- i fefence is thus .wholly the responsi- j bility of the party which delights to j flaunt its loyalty. Mr. Turiff was plain spoken. Tie could find only three small sections opposed to the pact, the Mauufacutr- -ers' association, the bankers and the linancial interests and the Conserva- tive party in the House, but not in the country. He had a warning for. The Manufacturers' association, which he characterized as its own worst cnemV. liThe financial interests bet- ter little careful of the spirit uf. the .great If they insist on looking, for trouble they are very in; the bitter end. Wes-'; tern people are reasonable minded. AU they ask is a square deal. They don't intend to remain hewers of wood and drawers of water many years longer. The time has gone by when the eastern corporate interests can convince western farm- ers that protection protects him." He noted that Sir Edmund Walker can take the money of the fanner and artisan deposited with his 'institution and help move the cotton crop at from two to fifty per cent, on all loans. Farmer's see him send their dollars to Xew York and Chicago for the benefit of "himself and his share- holders. But if the farmer forsooth sends a steer or a pig or a carload of wheat or barley to the United States to secure a better price, he is disrupting the empire. "Did ever jnen hear anything so absolutely ab- surd he asked. Turiff made a great speech for westerners and was cheererl 'to the echo. S. M. Rjrookfield. a Halifax Conser- vative, who nominated Mr. Borden at the .last. has issued an interview condemning the position of the opposition in opposing reciprocity and keeping Sir Wilfrid Lauricr from the Imperial conference.
