During the elections the yellow in Canada pictured President Taft as a big, bullying, browbeating ruler, ready to club or bribe Cnnad.l into an agreement that would stirtiiy result in the annexation of this Do- minion. We heard little or no reproof from any of the politicians who sought to profit hy tho campaign designed to arouse the passions and prejudices or' the unthinking mass of voters. Pre- mier Borden and some of his calniur- headtKl ministers are now patching up the mischief done by selfish interests that were tearful of their preserves if the people were given even a taste of trade freedom. At Halifax mi Wed- nesday. Premier Berden said: "In somvj Quarters, which I need not name, the claim has been made the whol-a Western country. Canada has not prospered as she should have done during the past decade. Mr. White, in the course of his addrotis yesterday, said: "City population in the Kast is in- creasing fast; rural population is al- most standing still. The prosperity of Canada most depends upon the pro- duction of the farm more than upon anything else. We must seek to make life attractive, to give the farmer ai'l possible advantages, to assist in fac- ilitating production.'1 Why is the rural population almosi: standing still? Is it a wise policy that stagnates the farming districts? Ca- nada lost a great opportunity lo re- move tho stagnation in the Knst. and help along the progress of the West.

In this partic- ular manufacture, the British manu- facturers claim, to he experts, and, :i regard to natural advantages, Thv-j have no superior, if equal, in any otliei country. Therefore the inference rr- rivcd at musl be that the present p Co is not sufficient to set off the advantages which the Uni'ed States, owing to propinquity to Can- ada, possesses. The British press in discissing the matter says lhat'it is found that there are a dozen foreign countries .that are worth more to Oreat Britain as a market for mach- inery 'than Canada. What is more significant is that. "Canada absorbs more machinery per capita than any other British colony." Yet, as the British government figures show, it buys less British ttifichinery than Bur-1 Cape Colony, the Transvaal or and only one-third as much as Ntew South Wales. Here are facts and statements which should call for immediate in- realisation. It is strictly a matter, which the government should take u It is a subject for surprise and co ment in the Old Country that tho ol est of the great Dominions, so ente prising and rich in natural resource should yet afford so poor a market British machinery. That there is demand in a country of this deecri tion for the best machinery, without saying.
