CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES TARIFF It must indeed be surprising to many American politicians and citi- zens to read 'that the Canadian gov- ernment and 'the Canadian people are not in the least- alarmed over the tariff changes soon to come into op- eration. It has been common belief among a very large section of the people and the politicians of the Unit- ed States that Canada was Absolutely dependent upon their country for its well-being, that its farmers would have no market if they did not buy their produce, that Canada could not sell 'her manufactured products else- where and our factories would close down if the Americans did not buy, that the industries -connected with the supply of raw material would die if the manufacturers across the line did not buy that raw material and that our fishermen and stock growers would go out of business if they had no market in the neighboring republic They seern to have had the idea, too, that they could do -is they liked with their tariff and that it would make BO difference as far as Canada was con- cerned, as she would have nothing else to do but accept the conditions regardless of their advantage or dis- advantage to interests. A proportion of the people 'or the United States, however, have nor held these views as was evidenced by the strong and sane protests against -the provisions, of the new tar- iff which were aimed to injure Canad- ian trade. In spite of these protests the Congress passed the tariff which made it prohibitive to import piper but which encouraged the importation of pulp and pulpwood from which to manufacture paper. This was a direct blow at tJhe Canadian paper-making industry and an attempt to deplete the Canadian pulpwood forests in order to save those of the United. States. This action was very promptly met by tiho governments of Ontario and Quebec by prohibiting "the exporta- tion of pulp or pulpwood, and now it is proposed and a motion will be brought before the House of Commons to place an export duty on pulp or pulpwood, .such as will be facial to Canada. Canada will not go back on on the Anglo-F-eneh treaty. it will not delay its acceptance for any fear of what the United States may do. The Conservative opposition has shown a tendency to cringe at the blow about to be struck by the other nation. They in Parliament have ple.tdvd delay and hinted at abroga- tion of the French treaty for fear of to American trade. Th.> sentiment oi the country does no; with any such idea.
