One of the results of-the quarrel be tween President Taft and dent Roosevelt is the production bl the president of some correspondence that passed between them, on the subject of reciprocity. The .Cabinet Changes in-tbe provincial 'cab- VJ met have been more or ticipEted for some mbnttis.

Mr. McKenxie.was the man primarily responsible for the rail- way tax in Alberta and member of the'Provlncial government, he will be expected to be at the back of other progressive legislation. Messrs. Boyle.and Stewart, two of .ho new members from the north, de- serve the recognition. They have outstanding men in the legislature sines they took their seats. Jlr. 3oyieFis a courageous man.

In his Torn speech last sum- mer he franklv avowed his reason "is at the parting of One way lay in the direction.; of imperial preferential trade, the the direction ot continental freeYrade. Naturally, the president desired Canada to take the latter way, and he that Canada took one step in that direction by accepting .reciprocity in natural products; the wjiy towards preferential trade would be. blocked to her.'' The majority of Canadians whp' fa; vored reciprocity believed President Taft to be mistaken in he was indulging a hope that would not be realized. It nov transpires 'that his hopes were even more extravagant than they appeared "last summer. But if he was mistaken in his belief that reciprocity in natural products be- tween Canada and the states would kill imperial preferential trade, so he might also have been mistaken n his hope would greatly increase the Canadian demand 'or American and would make Canada "only an adjunct of the United States."
