What the Herald does advocate is a low tariff, with as liiucli free trade as we can have. We dci not think Western Liberals, iu (heir advocacy of a low tariff d-asire to wreck any deserving industry, but the opinion of the West is that tire tariff should be lowered, and deserv- ing industries shoukl not te permit- 'ted to suffer. Protection in some cas- PS can b-3 excused, but the kind of pro- lection that builds up 'big fortunes for individuals, and creates combines and Must be squelched. The trouble with Eastern Canada 3s that It is afraid to offend the man- ufactui-ers, and though many people j .there may be low. tariff they are blinded by the pro- tectionists with their cries of tire flag and disloyalty, and vote against mea- iieipful to the low. tariff caues. If reciprocity had been considered oil its merits as an economic measure, no low tariff advocate would have oppos- ed it. but the cries of the protection- ist under the cover of the flag, caught many of them and consequently pro- jt-sctioii was victorious, and low tariff was given a temporary setback. Liberalism, hi order to thrive at to be of service to Canada, must c itself loose from a high protectii tariff and corporate influences, must stand clearly and distinctly f cities of the old world.

OUR POINT OF VIEW MAYOR MILXE, of Medicine Hat. in an interview with' a representative of the press, strikes the right chord, and shows a Etron? civic spirit. In speaking of the location of.the R. shops at Cal- gary, and the consequent disappoint- ment to the people of .Medicine Hat, Ire says: "There will be no depressing effect on the future business prosper- ity, and it remains for ,us to work out our own fulure, without looking for outside assistance from any large cor- poration." Thei'a are encouraging and self-re- liant words, and, comi-ag from mouth of tlie first citizen of the they hav-a an added weight. It is well that Medicine Hat, or any otlrer city, should have sufficient faith in its de- velopment by the power of its own re- i sources, and by the spirit of its citi-; The Right Spirit It is only right Hint a city shoulc do its best to attract important la dusttes, such -as the C. P.'R. shops. It is difficult to avoid the feel ing bl'-bitter disappointment which tht failure of its efforts must bring. Bu this disappointment should1 not be al lowed to clog the of civic pro 'grass. This is the stand which Maj- or 'Milne has raken, and it is one which we heartily commend and ad mire. The city, the individual, which has a sufficient faith in itself is bound to advance. The 'Mayor de- plores the'fact that the question of the shops should have lever been men- tioned. Still, we may -remark that there might be some little good to the city iii this respect, in the fact of its having had a Eair share of advertise- ment. Even the fact of its name hav- ing had a prominence, has its uses. The Tenant Vote WE CAXNTOT help admitting that the disqualification of ten- ants voting in the municipal election by the terms of Ihe City Charier is an injustice. It is-'wall tha.', the Charter should be amended in this direction. That taxation sliouW go with representation should be of a'M el-ectipns, no matter wheth- er thp laxation i? direct or .indirect. Inasmuch as it Is admitted .that -Hie reliant pays his- taxes the medium of rent, this is enough to warrant him ih-3 power to vote. .11 is practically'the acknowledgment of the principle of the "latch-key" vote. Tiip mm en t ion of Alderman Bow- man thai the fact of a tenant's voilng right allowed would give the owner and tsnant of a gmall shack fcoih the power to vote, and so does not seem right, cannot be said to be a strong one. Possibly the alderman I in bis mind the "evils of plural I voting. But there Is nothing of this Jn the exampl-2 cited. Each man in tho case is vested with the right to vote from ..the fact that he is paying tax- es, though th'ay are indirect in the case of one. There are not, however, two votes by the same individual, hut different votes different individ- may Ire argued that hers jtwo votes for taxation on the one pro- jperty, but there does not seam much this. The Interest of both parties is the same, that is, towards proper I'apresentation. Two votes can not b-e used hy the one person, and, therefore, any evil 11 provided ag- ainst. -j tenant: population of Letll- bridge Is a large The power to vote would tend to make more inter- est felt in civic, matters by more of (he jfjople. There iradoubtedly, much reason and fairness in extend- ing the municipal franchise to all householders, who are debarred from exercising It under the pivi-ent sys- tem. The C. P.
