W. 0. Seal- ey, M.P. for Weniworth, in the Cana- dian House of Commons, spoke before the Canadian Club at the banquet in the Parker House last, night. He re- plied to the toast. "International Trade and and in this connection, by 'Of the presi- dent, he referred to the United States tariff against..Canada. The Pavne-Aldric.h bill tariff in- creases on paper, pulp and maehe, said Mr. Sealcy, almost entirely prohibit- i ed the shipment of that commodity I from Canada to the United States, i which of course, has greatly benefit- It cd .the producers of that commodity iiifthc United States to the extent of j.instantly doubling the value to the irrespective of what the ef- fect may be on' the United States i users of this product. But what has it done for Canada? It has, in substance, advertised to the world that Canada has the greatest pulp supply of any country in the world, in fact more pulp wood to-day than all the other countries in the world combined, with a continu- ous an-d everlasting supply by natur- j al reforestry indigenous to the soil, j True, it has temporarily slightlv (disturbed the sale of Canadian mache, it has suddenly prompted British capitalists, and United States capi- I talisis, to immediately arrange for, 1 the erection of two large paper plants 1 in Canada for the further conversion of paper maehe into finished paper which mills are now under the preliminary stage of construc- tion, and will be completed at an 'early date. Nothing could be more helpful to Canada -to, introduce her to the-markets of the remainder of the j world, whose wants Canada will i supply, almost entirely irrespective of i tar ft, at a very early date.

We shall be pleased to hand you a pamphlet which just tells you what you can do.

Lethlridge-Weyburn Realty Ci. ltd Ground Floor Offices next Balmoral Hotel, Round Street, Lethbridge Phone 122 expecting; more paper .mills from New England or elsewhere to be construct- ed on our pulp areas- in Canada in the near but as our business relations with .the New England Stales in this particular commodity had been pleasant, it was rather sur- prising that they were disturbed. However, the recent decision of the I United States Treasury Department, announced on the 16th ult. practical- jly abolishes the extreme -tariff wall i in this particular commodity of pulp I wood, while carrying out to a. very i limited extent the' principles of the, S Payne bill to products taken from the Crown lands in Ontario and Quebec jonly, which practically puts Canada- Shack: to the same trade position she formerly had. In the meantime, the I Payne-Aldrich'' hill has advertised us 1 the world over, and prompted capital for two Canadian paper mills, and .now- restored.' our former trade condi- tions. So you see Canada is away ahead on both counts as a result of the ef- fect of the Payne-Aldrich bill in this particular respect. Take the tariff on wheat, which was twenty-live cents per bushel, and the s attempt of the Payne bill to increase lit, to .thirty cents per bushel, which, I if adopted, would benefit the United States wheat producers by effectually stopping Canadian wheat coming into the world is grown seven hundred miles north of the United States northern boundary line." Since placing a tariff on steel rails, Continued Mr. Sealey not a "pound of United States steel rails have come ,into Canada, and in the near future 1 the rail output of the Dominion will surprise the world. The speaker referred to the peat beds of Ontario, the coal areas of Nova Scotia and British Columbia, the immense timber areas of the last- named province, the coal, gas, oil and other minerals that were found in Sunny Alberta, and the immense wealth that lay in the. Canadian fish- eries, he said that, with all due re- spect to the kindness of Providence, in providing natural resources for _ the United States, she has provided I much more bountifully for Canada. In I fact, if the saying ever fittingly ap- plied it would read ''Canada is God's for he has given her sixty- five per cent, of the water powers of j the world, fifty per cent, of the iron i ore of the world, the greatest Cobalt i silver mines in the world, ninety per j cent, of the Sudbury nickel ore of the world (New Caledonia thirteen thousand miles away being the only known The armor plate of the United States navy, of I the British navy, of the German navy j and of the newly-designed Canadian j j navy are all being tempered to-day j I with Canadian nickel steel. j i Mr. Sealey spoke of Canada's won- j I derful system of elevators, the spl-en- j did facilities afforded at the port of j j Montreal, the projected dry docks at! largest in the and vast shipbuilding plants, and said that from all these things his hear- ers might gather some idea of the immensity of Canada's commerce. "I cannot, said Mr. Sealey, ''attribute all these results to the ef- fect of the United States tariff. Some little share of it is, no doubt, due to our own little efforts, and particu- larly to the wisdom and foresight of. that great Canadian statesman, Sir I Wilfrid Lauricr, and the able advisers iw'itli whom he is surrounded in the i Canadian Parliament. As Canadians we realize that, prosperous as we are. our nearby markets are rather i the most profitable, and if, any morn- ing the Payne-Aldrich people waken up to the idea of voluntarily giving i Canada a trade concession, I. know it would immediately be returned by Canada the next day by twice as great .a one because Canada can well afford, to be generous in this respect. While I am not speaking officially for Canada, only expressing my own personal views, I believe these views- are shared by many Canadians gener- ally. Mr; Sealcy concluded by assuring. his hearers of Canada's friendship- and good feeling, and said that he should be glad if anything he had said would aid, ever so little, iR helping, to direct these -feelings of friendship to wiser and more profit- able trade.relations. Dr. Neill McPhatter, president ot the Canadian Club, of New York, fol- lowed Mr. Sealey, with a discussion. of the reciprocity measures which-. Canadians in the United States wish- ed consummated with her neighbor. Other speakers, on reciprocity were- Colonel Sidney 0. Bigney, of Attle- iboro, Chas.

"will become-overcrowded. "When I tell you that to-day we are produc- ing nearly a hundred and fifty mil-. lions of bushels of wheat in that ter- j immense quantities of i oats and other less than eight per cent, of the survey lands j occupied, and with the Peace river country opening up that will increase by tenfold our present choice wbeat, j area, you will readily see that we j have an abundance of room for a j hundred millions of people up there near commencing to brush j shoulders with each other. With a i j choice agricultural area nine hundred j miles long by seven hundred and fifty; miles wide, containing three hundred i and fifty .million a hundred and j seventy-five acres of which is choice wheat land, and at present only twelve million acres in crop, all told, you will readily see that my com- putations are very conservative. And particularly so as the prize wheat of What Was Warner Three Years Ago? A patch of the earth's surface twenty-five miles from a humari habitation. What'Was Sterling Four Years Ago?
