(Montreal Mr. Borden that if Sir Wil- fird Laurier, liad not told the Eng- lish that Canada did not want a pref- erence in the British market we should have had that preference by this time, or he thinks so. In so say- ing, Mr. Borden takes a somewhat humble position. What Sir Wilfrid Laurier said at Liverpool in 1897 was that Canada had granted the British preference without asking for a pref- erence in the only pos- sible preference, that of placing duty on food, would be an injury to Great Britain, and that Canada was not going to ask for a sacrifice of hat sort. Sir Charles Tupper was very angry at this, and has frcquent- y rebuked Sir Wilfrid for not mak- ng such a sacrifice on the part of Britain a condition of the prtf crence. This is the sort of imperial- ism that our privileged class so glor- ies in. Wfi depend on Great Britain for the cost of imperial administration including the defence which WP. need and as the price of our loyalty we want the people who bear these bur- dens for as also to pay more for their food tha'i the difference may go into our pockc-ts. This last looks like holding out the hat and saying in a tremulous voice, 'Charity for a poor lame man.' If the people of Great Britain think it, good for their own sakes to put a tax on their food- stuffs whenever got from foreign coun- tries; we Canadian will all be well pleased, and none move so than Sir Wilfrid Laurier., But to ask her to do it for our sake is, as we have said taking a very humble; The preference we have-given we plume ourselves on having given for the empire's sake, and no doubt that good sentiment was evoked for all it was worth. We-certainly did owe :hje empire something in return for all it-was doing for us. But the benefit Great Britain was small; it was a lowering of a tariff wall ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT At Less Than HALF PRICE Stock-must be cleared out now at latest within a few days.

What we did we did really for our own sakes. ..The government had got into power promising a reduction in the duties, and this was what it did i-i carrying out-that pledge to our 'own people, and in answer to a demand that had not the empire or Great, Britain at all in mind. It was a minimum-fulfilment of a prom- ise; but something Had to be done to satisfy our people. There was therefore ho claim on Great. Britain at all. Yet. because we took down 'only one side of this wall that we had undertaken, to lower all round, Mr. Bprderi thinks we should have de- manded of Great Britain a departure from all and the erec- tion of a wall against the great ma- Groceries and Crockery must be cleared at once.
