Reciprocity has become a nightmare to the Conservative forces. They dread'the. sound of'the woid more than ever In this proving at the pros ent time. They feel it be a power- ful agent In dashing thelr.hopes with regard to the present bye elections. For so long as leclprocity with Stntcj i> allied >to the principles of LlbcralUm It.must bo a factor In its campaigns, provincial or otherwise. The V. lends ot reciprocity arc tho fnemls of the -farmers. There Is no setting away from this. What can tho agricultural industry expect from false friends, who they know have nipped their industry and handicapped it In every way? Millions of they lost, and millions more III they lose so long as wider markets are de nied them There 1.3 a letter vvrlttin by a practical farmer, '.Mr. Lamarah Wlnnifred, and published In the Toronto Globe. He sajs. Now. what are the facts as to in the west by the defeat of reciprocity by the artisans and vvorkingmen of Ontario at the dic- tation of manufacturers? 1 have a letter from Mr. Hhynlauder, one of the largest dealers m gram in Minneapolis, who siys that "for the poorest grades of frozen wheat from Canada we could pay S2c per bushel at Minneapolis The poorest grades -brought from 30c to 40c per bushel .at elevators here. Deducting a freight rate of loc per bushel, including commis- sion, from Minneapolis prices with reciprocity in force, would have uetted the homesteader G7c in- of gain of 27c bushel The greatest difference in prices between Minneapolis maiket and here was upon lower grades of wheat.

How can we Hud markets- for whpat In tho United States when they have a surplus? .Tho answer. Is a simple one. -Ontario in some .localities has a-surplus ot wheat over local roqulrfinents, yet every mil! vin Ontario grinds fine-third North- west wheat. Why; Because they have to do so to'produce a blend of flour that with with Jhe. western "mills. In fact, all'flour mills in Canada, proportion of. weste'ra wheat, for the reason given "above. The- same thing have oc- curred under reciprocity with the United States. Every mill In United States would have been grinding Northwestern wheat. They would, have to do so to com- pete with those that did. Even if the United-States had plus of.wheat they would grifid Canadian .-Northwest wheat, had reciprocity carried, to supply quality p-f flour the market cie- jnands The total.loss to the people of Can- ada through the rejection s estimated at After.thla the farmers may well ask: our The great prilicIple-.oH the Liberal party in the Dominion, that of free and unlimited markets, must be which should de cide.the vote of elector, Federal or when he is called upon to exeretae it.

Toda> it is "Canada, an adjunct of the United Slates' Into both these phrases have been read meanings intended by the terson in whom they originated They have been given an .Interpreta- tion to suit tho purposes of their -ipolitical interpreters. To the unbiased reader the confi- dential letter of Mr. Taft can only have 9ne reading as to the meaning of the word "adjunct" in relation to Its context. Whs" Is It that he has written? more than this. amount of Ca-iadian product would take would pioduce a current of business between Western Canada and the United Stales." It Is the of bufiincK" that the Presi- dent had in mind on what was purelj and simply a business' transaction. This waa the meaning conveyed In tho letter to its recipient. For Roosevelt adds to UK economic Teutons given by Taft his owto penonil reisons, namely, thoua Indlotwl by-the itsrd "pollUcnI." I nothing to do with the political absorption of Canada. Thai Roosevelt did mean is clearly shown by his present attitude towards reci- procity, for, by his lolte faco In the matter, he IB using it as a matter of exigency -for his own personal political purposes- This is all there is In it, and all that has been in it But the opponents of the recipro- city pact become alarmed by dally disclosed that tho country Is becoming alue to the fact that a sarluus mistake was made last September. They view with appre- hension 'that when the time comes for the people to speak their minds anew on the question, that the leaders of the party will be thrown down from their high places. Hence tho desire to setre with avidity the1 morsel just thrown out, and to distort and magnify it out meaning and .proportion Even noxp lome of the organs of the party aie constrained by tne force of circumstances to admit that the United States market Is necessary for this country. But with a wry face they vainly prophesy that the time will come when the southern republic will throw open its doors to Canada without requiring n reciprocal action.
