Now, what facts have we got? That the wages were miserably poor in Britain under protection' and that at the time they were poor in Britain under protection they were high in.the United.Slates under free trade. Mr. a book called Facts, Present and.Fu- ture, said that one of the reasons given for the' introduction of- protection in the United States was. would reduce the wages which :were too high. That ;is to be found on record in that book. Compare that With the condition of wages in the United'States ..today, ".Wages in Britain have gone up; nobody who.knows the facts will deny that for a moment.' What has happened in the United Stales? If you read Colliers Weekly of Jfarch referring lo the-Laurence strike, you will find that Colliers Weekly tells of the tex- tile workers in Laurence, Mass., denj-ing Ihem- selves the common necessaries of life and taking lodgers into houses already overcrowded by their own families to scrape up money lo return to their, naljve land. That is one of the most highly in the "United yoojien And when we sit down and realise what our mothers have done for us, whatever regard we may hold for them becomes tenfold.

There was little clear definilion of the nature of the al- leged selfishness and greed of the East in relation to the West, bill frequently a profuse use of ad- jectives of emphasis." This from a press interview given out by Dr. J. W. Robertson, chairman of lhe recently dis- banded commission on technical education, who visited Lethbridge at Easier. The same opinion was expressed by V. C. Brown of- Ihe Canadian Bunk of Commerce while in lhe cily a few days ago.
