Number 223 FRUITGROWER iFAVORS THE PACT Says Commission Men are Opposed; Can Beat U. S. Growers Chas. Hnnka, a prominent fruit grower u[ Kuslo, B. C., was in the city today. Spoaking to the Herald, the conversation naturally drifted to reciprocity. Mr. Banka says SI is a mistake to think that the British .Columbia fruit growers are opposed to reciprocity. He is strongly in fa- vor of it.nnd so is every fruit-grower he Knows. They want it in order to get, thttir household requirements cheaper from across the such produce as butler, eggs, early vege- tables, etc., and thus save the heavy charges that come from >a long freight haul. As to the Fruit market, Mr. Banka the B. C. growers can raise bet- ter fruit, just as cheap or cheaper, than the Washington and Oregon men can. .Their lamls do not require so large an investment as do the lands ncross tho line. "We can raise fruit cheaper than the United States grow- ITS can bring it over, ft will be no trick at all to msot the United I States prices and then make money." Mr. Banka says that the commis- Fremont, j Bion fruit mtin are against reciproc- J ity, hut there is-no''reason why they be. as they will be able to j male ii good rate of profit handling fruit at .the prices that will prevail I after reciprocity is adopted.

The political ex- perience of Sir James extends back 'or many years, and he remembers (he giants of early days on both sides of the- Mouse, though one and ail were, in favor of free trade in na- tural products with the United Stales. Sii James riocs not require. to be guided by the records, for his memory carries him hack to the days when he heard the political stalwarts on both sides oi politics urge the de- sirability of making a reciprocal ar- rarittnment with the United States. I.V is in full accord with the contentions, and naturally regrels thai (ho Conservative leaders of to- dav have deserted {.ftc cause for which Sir John Macdonald fought.

So far as the laboring men are concerned in this election campaign it is just like appointing a man to represent them on a. coneil- man they select should hot be chosen from the ranks of the men, connected with the large interests of the country, but .he should be a man who would-pledge himself to after their interests in every piece- of legislation affecting labor which might come up in the house. He was sure, ho said, that Mr. Buchanan was prepared to do this and asked them therefore to conside: the question .carefully, in which case would be little doubt as to their casting'their vote for tlie Liberal can- didate in' thereon'mg election. Mr. Palmer's address impressed the ag being very much to the point, and Jiis remarks carried a great deal of weight, for although this'elec- tion Is fought out on the ciprocity issue, the workingmen are not blind to the fact that some portant legislation will soon be made affecting their interests, and they see the force .of having a representative whose previous afCitations will not. tend to'prevent him from working un- reservedly in their interests. ilr. Venncsland then made a few urlef remarks 'which were very much to the point and well received by the electors. His address was a practical interpretation of the reciprocity pact as it.affects (he masses of tho people. The Liberal government, he said, was government which represents the wishes of the many rather than the and thai is the only desirable kind of government to vote for in .his election.

The ten- lency of the pact is to love] the tariff if two countries lying side by side 'or thousands of miles. The people if Canada have goods to sell, and if.
