Mwrin Theahv Reciprocity Issue Not Dead "A tew months ago, 1 appealed to tho popple ,of..Uie-country' on the qucs- llou of reciprocity. In this province, at all events, It was not the qvwsllon of rcciprbclty which was uppermost, In discussion. There wero other Is- HUCH. which'had, perhaps, no'Cause to bo brought up, but which were duced. if wo Wore was not upon tho main Issue which was uubmltted to the country, as far as this province was concerned, "and, perhaps, In Ontario also. We wore ..de- feated by the most heterogenuous combination- of ele'ments which bind totethei people '01 destruction but which would Clever hold together for constictiuon (Apj laiHc) 'We had against us- the live party, led toy -Mr. which was natural. Then we had against us another wing led by Mr. Monk, and the Nationalists, led by Mr..Bourasaa. We had against us the jlugta, .led by 1 don't know who, and, If can be- lievo the words ut Mr. Ne Tomore decree had no small part in our defeat. Mr. Monk's Pet Issue "During the campaign, tile question of reciprocity was not discussed by the followers of Mr. Monk. They Were concerned specially with the .na- val the Manitoba school question, which-we supposed had been settled twelve or fifteen years ago, so far as tlio Fedora! government was concerned. But they said that the Lanrier-Greenway settlement was no settlement, but that if they went back to po'wcr there would, be.a real set- tlement of the question. ;_ ,r: "Yon heard also IMir pledges to'the people that if only the Laurier 'gov- ernment was.defeated tlio naval .law- could be wiped off the statute-books. That was the attitude of Mr.. Monk and his dissentient Conservatives." As to tho Nationalists, Sir Wilfrid t, lid that he could not see any differ- ence between their policy, and .that 'of' the' Conservative yet they unite with the jingoes of Toronto, .who took the attitude that the. naval policy was not satisfactory, one side object- ing that it was too strong, and. the other that It was not strong enough. said Sir Wilfrid, "we had these forces from every side of the horizon centreing upon us. Personal- ly. I novel- regretted the result, but I certainly regretted it for the country. But in view of what has taken place smqe September 21, I do not know that we should very .much, regret; that defeat, because the conseiinenc.e of that defeat has 'been the -unmasking of the Nationalists and Conservatives of Qufibec. The Docile Nationalists "Before tile election they were all Nationalists together. After the el- ection they. Were all ConseTvativesnto get pationnge fiom the gov 01 nmelit There were men who believed the thing, and liefore the election de- nounced both Laurier and but 'when the day came that Bordeii had jobs, and. ev- en membeiships to give, thej vvere no longer Nationalists, but were oat nut.nf nnrilo.n's hand nnd lick-hlB fingers. One would suppose they were men of high ideals, vvho would never be satisfied without-the vestoi ation of the separate schools in Man- itoba, and the repeal of the naval bill. They vvere deluded, and know better now. The patriotism of Quebec Na- tionalists and Conservatives does-not spring from the heart; it springs from the stomach. When [heir stomach is full, their heart ceases to beat and their tongues are mute. It was worth being defeated to find this out, and to show that the people who come .before you and say that all questions can 'he settled in the point of view of one province alone, Irrespective of the other provinces, arc charlatans and demagogues.' Time to Review "Now that eight months had pass ed, since the last Sir Wil- frid declared, "the time had come to look at the whole matter and consid- er what, 'were the values of the object tions raised to the main Issue of re ctprocity and what policy was 'now to be followed, since it was -far en- ough removed to be considered with- out bias." "I need not tell he said, "that on the Conservative side froth and firry place of argument and reason, and that they represented re- ciprocity as the first stop toward mriexation and that the contest was lepresented as one between the Brit isli and American flags for suprem- acy in Canada.' Larger Markets Needed Proceeding, Sir Wilfrid pointed out that there wore great problems con- fronting Canadian development. Am- ong these was that of securing larg- er markets for Canadian products. I believe "that reciprocity would have largely solved this he continued, "bill I am n constitutional- ist, aiid I accept the verdict of my fellow countrymen, hut the problem is still there, and In an even more acute form. The problem existed in the East, while In ,lho Western provinces larg- er markets were ah imlispensible no csssity. Canada had been pouring population into Hie Western provinces and the problem was where would the crop go, l! Mr. Bennett's Anertion V Mr. Calgary, had visited Montrealt and declared that unless the Western provinces secured a larg- er market outlet ho would not ans- wer for their allegiance. Did any of you hero hear him say that? Sir Wil- frid asked. (There' were cries of from different parts of, the hall.) observed Sir Wilfrid, Binll- "If that had come from me, It would huvo called treason, hut it was ii slronK'Conservative'imper- ialist who said It." .Continuing', he pointed out.that the conditions which mused Mr. Don- ne'lt'8 utterance also caused Mr. Fos- tei lOpO to Washington after getting tho consent of Ihc tlneo ticat rail- navs The Inconsistent Foster Mi 1 oster had to have the consent of .the.- corporations. lie vycilt to and permission from th-e InterBtnto commerce commission to ship grain south.on tho same terms ni to, Pol t Al tiiur 1 Ins wis Eulas ___J. nelUln ring at the want of Caiiadiin patriotism on the p-.'t of the Llbeiali, In seeking a similar outlet. Mr. Foster's dealing with the pro- blem was not a solution, it was only The problem would bo Uiore again. Sir Wilfrid pointed out that'the only effort of Mr. Foster to secure larger markets had been the making, of a treaty with the West indies. "And, horror of horrors, he negotiated his treaty In secret. I nm .io't blaming hiin for that. We will judge bis t'reaty when he brings it down. %Biit, he did rail at my friend .Mr. 'Fielding for conducting his secret. Mr. Foster's West Indies treaty would not solve the pr'oblenl." Jle was reminded of Beau Brum- 'mel, who he was ask- ed if he was a vegetarian: "Yes, I once ate a pea." ".The pfesent said Sir Wilfrid, "were solving the problem of lirrgor markets to the extent of one pea." liDurlhg oiir tjsst session we brought down but the government is content will one i.-aa.

It biisy'spending uioncy. hi reminds hie of who has unexpectedly fallen heir to a large estate Ibrig'admlnistered by care fill hamls, and, dazed and bewildered In- his' sudden fortune, buries his hands deep in the treasmj, scatter- ing It with riotous extravagance to make up for the long period of forced abstemiousness. 'The Main Job 'When the government vvas not spending money.'it nab making dis- missals .md appointments Office- holders had descended upon It thick as locusts in Egj'pi iJiitil the othei day, Mi. Foster, suriaunded beset, buttonholed and'suffering, utte-red in a ciy of despair "Tins is u damnable system' It damnably ad- added sir Wilfrid, amid laughter The.Naval. Policy The venerable chief then turned his attention to the naval question He traced th., lustoiy ot it from its inception, and dn'ected attention to the dnectly diverge positions Messrs Harden nntl ivinnlc hnd taken upon it Although -they boHrldlffored, they com billed In assming1 the electorate-that jf they wero returned to power they would lepell It right awaj But they had done nothing set. On behalf of himself and the Liberal paitj, he de- claicd adhesion to the Laurier naval policy. The Taft Letter Sir Wilfrid referred lo the famous Taft letter to Roosevelt regarding rs cipiocity, in which he said he looked upon recipiocitj as the ondmg to make Canada an adjunct of the Un- ited States "It was to be he, said, "that such a lettei would be taken up us all, who were opposed to reciproc- ity It was natural that the Conser- should take it up It was seized to Conservative party with a glee, and quoted as a jiistlfica lion of their attitude. But'there was nothing new in it Wo aio familiar with all it contained, and ho had heaid the word 'adjunct' before from the Conservative oiatori In fact, Taft, in that .letter, ;only repeated vvh.lt had been said bj the Canadian jingoes, and.ndmittcd he had borrow- ed both the idea and expression fiom Canadian Tories: "I want to discuss that question in mj position, under because I am satisfied notwithstanding that, let- ten that we vvere in the light (Ap pinnae.) In that letter Taft candidly admits the arguments of tbe Canadian Tories, and he evidently thought that if the Canadian Tories could use such appeals to passion and prejudice of the Canadian people against reciproc- ity, it might also appeal to the pas- sions ami prejudices ol the Ameri- can people in favor of reciprocity; which "only goos.torshow the similar weak'ness of human nature on both sides of the line, and the feelings which politicians, not. actuated by the highest motives, will appeal to." Surprised at Taft Sir Wilfrid said 'that while in the States he had refused to ex- press any opinion as to the Taft let- ter. "But, he said, "for my part, I wish to say that I am sirrpris- "ed that n maii.of the eminence of Mr. Taft should borrow such .shallow- rhetoric from the Canadian jingoes.1' "And the funny part Is that this letter which lias been so seriously taken by the Canadian jin- goes did not convince' my friend Theo- dore, to whom It was addressed. He did nol. share the Idea that reciproc- ity would make Canada an adjunct to tlie United Slates. (Applause.) He replied to Taft that vyhat was was admirable in vvajr, Ifctt Friday and Saturday Special in Footwear Ladies' Pumps, Oxfords and High Cuts Men's Black Calf, Tan and OC Patent Leather See Our East Window 'for Bargains Bring Us Your Repairs THE-' FOOT TOGGERY he u'clleved'.ln tree trade 'with Canada for what.might come of it and for pol- but he was careful .to say thes'e political reasons wetie hon- prable'both to Canada and the Unit ed' States, and he cabled to London that when he used me wurus. I'uiiiiUu reasons' he hud no thought of annexa lion or the subordination of Canada to tho States. ''Yofi have the fact that Roossvelt had.no Idea that reciprocity meant anything like annexation, and is not Roosevelt us good an authority for Ca- nada as Tatt. You bave your choice, and I take the Roosevelt Idea, which Is more mv idea of commercial reci- procal Union of Souls reciprocity was opposed in tue States as much as.iu Canada. The American lumbermen, fnimeis and fishermen opposed it as strongly as the Canadian Tories. Moreover, It is an open secret that during the heat of the contest, when every nerve was strained to win, the special interests of the United States joined hands with those in Canada to defeat reci- procity, and .sang lustily 'God Save .the while they whispered to each other our monopolies and trusts." (Laughter.) Sir Wilfrid then launched into a Ion? of the ieclproc.it) nego- tiations conducted, by his government, and gave a resume of practically all of that wore heard so frequently during the last campaign. The declaration that the Conservative puitj had always been In favoi of le clurocitr and had booni unable to at- tain it, and had only opposed it.when the Liberals secured an agreement was made again and again. "It is an open 'which eierv- body at Ottawa declared Sir, Wilfrid, "that in.tlre caucuses held by tho Conservative party to ascertain whether or not the convention would bo accepted, there was a search- ing of jicarts before finally de cided oppose the treats put when It was finails iisceilalned lint Mi Siftoninnd fey others of the Con and Liberil members from Toi'onto district were.opposed to that tieat> from tint du tho Conservithe pirty mado up its mind to oppose the agreement, and the party turned as complete a somersnult as was ever seon at Barnum's circus.."
