Opinions regardingvtlie probable effect of-tlii removal of duty were as Varied as they were numerous, previous to the.dale of its application, but everyone who deals in live-slot front Ihc producer down through all. llie'dealers 16 the consumer reiilizds now-thai Canadian jield fimi, liu lliey are steadily advancing. -American buyers are invading Can ada; easlern cities are drawing a larger portion of their bee supply from Toronto at the present lime, than from Chicago.

Naluraily, the producer Irtnefits. lie is given a belter price for his product by American buyers, "which forces the Canadian buyer to hbisl also in .order (o conipele'. The'Conseri-ative press is trjing lo follow" this up with the argmnenl thai the consumer is paying this increased price, as.'a result of the tariff bill of October 25tii, denying the farmer; _QL producer, these benefits and attempting to create favorable, imp cessions among the con- suming public, by hoodwinking thenKJnlo believing thai as Ihe producer benefils, so the-consumcr suffers. an example let trace a beefsteak from a local shop to the producer. The Lethbridge retailer pays llie wholesaler in Calgary, or wherever he may be, a price which is fixed by the cost of meats in com- petitive markets. -The cost of rn.eats in the past has always been tbc.Chicago markets. Like conditions will prevail under the new tariff. If all the cattle in Alberta, or in Canada, for thai mailer, were sold in Canadian rriarkels, il is folly to sup- pose that the price would fall so that the consumer would benefit.

Think of the competitive buying, the ridiculously high freight rales and'the numerous hangers-on_comnionly known as these factors iip with the greatest menl shortage' the .world has ever seen, and cyc-glasses will not iw needed to. place the blame. The removal of the duty on liyc-slock has proven ils worih already. The price of meal lo consumers has remained practically the same, but the producer is bcnefiflcd. And farmers .who have fell Ihese benefits are beginning lo ask this very natural ti'ueslioh: "If free livc- 1 stock gives us a belter price wouldn't free wheat work the same "Strike liot only-at them, but expose aiiil, send lo the penitentiary, if possible, the respectable gcntlemeu who supply funds anil superintend the work from a safivdislancc. .'Fight also any influences within your own party which favor corrupt methods. Let there be no parly fund Ihe lU-lails of which may known and the cximuiiim-c'of'which cannct be made public. Let your elections be conducted according toHipnoruble, decent and clean methods. A campaign to this end should be begun anil persisted in. But, above all, there should be an unflinching determination to pursue and inflict every punishment known to the law Ihe respect- able conspirators and not alone their iiiramuusriustni- meuis employed and paid lo subvert the will of Ihe peo- ple by bribery, ballot-switching and every other- frad- nlent and corrupt practice." Never before in the political.history of our country bus Ihere precedent or parallel to the extensive and highly-organized ection criminality in the Macdonald by-elcclidivas stands mi- ssed by the voiding of Ihe seal by the man declared elecled by majority of 781, in order to prevent the laying bare of the facts open court. Conlimiing in bis speech al Halifax, Mr. Borden thus nn- ounccd the first plank of Die Conservative platform, "which I ubinit to he said, "as an essential article of .Conservative provision'to punish bribery and fraud at elections, lo ensure thorough'publicity as lo ex- penditures by poWicnl organizations, to prohibit contri- butions- thereto by corporations, contractors and pro- moters, tq-cxpedile llie hearing of petitions and to prevent collusive arrangements for the withdrawal Or compromise thereof, to provide for :i galion'bf corrupt practices, and, if necessary, to appoint an independent prosecuting officer charged with (hat duly, the laws so amended." On February Mr- B'ordenmade a speech to Ihe urn- siiidenls in Toronto, a speech, like all his speeches as lead- er of Ihe parly in opposition, abounding with eloquent expression rf pious nnd npble scntinienlsV In that speech, after holding fortl n advocacy of the principle that 'public omce suoum oe a pumii. rusl and apppinlmcrils i.i Ihe public- service should not be made Ihe reward of partisan service, Mr. Borden said: 'The other subject is the conduct of elections. e have not aH Ihe provisions for the prevention of corrupt practices which have been enacted in Great Britain have however, a law which if strongly supported by public opinion and thoroughly enforced should be sulhc- icnt lo accomplish'much more than has becii realized.
