Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald voiume IV. Saturday, September Number 227 PRACTICAL ANSWER TO BENNETT'S ARGUMENT David Balcovski, Well Known Cattle Buyer Pays Higher Prices in Prospect of Reciprocity Pass- ing American Buyers Offering Still More Conditionally "I bought one thousand heart of eatttc from the Molntyre ranch yes- terday, and I had to pay five dollars more a head lor Ilium than I paid their manager last year for the saute class of cattle. At the saniu time the old country market, is a little Jowtii ycai1 Mian it was last. Hut knowing, as I do, that reciproc- ity will pass, I was willing to pay that five more a head than last year without fear oJ losing on the ship- 'rnent." These wei'e the statements made to the Herald last night by David Bal- covski, one of the largest cuttle cattle, and they were cattle buyers, too, and just as soon as reciprocity pns.sns they will be ready to make offers for the cattle of tins country. 1 know Iliat reciprocity is Roing to mean a higher price for the Alberta osttle. but 1 am satisfied to lalJe my cliam-'CK even if f do have to pay higher price, for I, in turn, am as- .s-urcft of a hotter market than we liavu now.

But that was to be expected. Large numbers of peo- pie wanted to hear Mr. Magrath, not good fellow" hy the crowd on the, stage, a series of cheers from the same source and some handclapplng everybody, supporters and oppon- ents alike. .Mr. Magrath devoted Ms almost entirely to the economic .side of the issue; leaving the flag waving to his colleague. Being in rather poor, rolce owing to an attack of hay fey. er, he did not speak very long. Among: other things he said that the people of Canada have tho Conserva- tive party to thank for having the pri- vilege of voting in the reciprocity of the meeting last night, and I heard A iit.tlc competition might work bc they could keep j the city was' Bennett's arguments on the cat- home without taking the respon.-ii- I that the opposition can ship to other States. They need our cattle just, afraid of the effect of reciprocity in as hatlly at, Seattle, Tacoma, Spo- kane, Portland, and even 'Frisco, and they will pay just, as much or prob- ahly move than they will in the Chi- cago market. These places arc clos- er to us -than-the'Chicago market, and the freight rates are less. To prove what I say regarding these markets, there was a man in Cards- ton while I was loading the train- load I have in the yards here, a Mr. Frascr from Seattle, and Mr. Ben- nett can find him in Calgary if he wishes to get some authentic infor- mation regarding the cattle markets in States, who was looking over the country sizing up the cattle situ- ation here. In fact, lie saw some of the cattlemen in Ilic country south of here, and made offers to them for their cattle. Me offered a higlicr price than I paid them, a couple of dollars ;i head hiphnr, but he provid- ed (hat his offer held eooil only in the event of reciprocity passing. There were two other gentlemen from the. States looking over the same the horse market.

KING, THE CANDIDATE FOR KOOTENAY, CAUGHT KASLO Kaalo, B.C., Sept. was a large and enthusiastic audience which greeted Dr. King, the Liberal candi- date for Kootenny, at Kaslo tonight. JJr. King spoke for an hour on the reciprocity pact, the benefits which would follow if adopted In Brit- ish Columbia. He claimed that the fruit growers of this province at (he present time would be ready to bene- fit by obtaining best market In Ihe world for their high grade fruit, and also competition on tie prairie provinces would be removed because Ontario and eaitern fruit would be shipped south rather 'than to prairies. He quoted many" large frnlt growen, all ConisrvativeB, who fa- vored the pact. .and 1.

The motlTe of UK crime alleged to RAY KNIGHT IN PACT Explanation of His Pres- ence on Magrath's Plat-L form Raymond, Sept. Conserva- tive papers of Southern Alberta have been making a great deal sf the pre- sence of Raymond Knight on the plat- form at the Mngrnth meeting a :week "go. The Lethbridge News in report- ing, the Magrath meeting said that when Ray Knight walked across the platform the audience applauded. This Is true but at the same time that Mr. Knight walked across the platform Mr. Magrath, Mr. Green and Mayor Young walked across also, and how the News man could distinguish ap- plause for Mr.-Knight among .the others is hard for us to understand. The News would have the reading public understand that by his pres- ence on the platform Mr. Knight-was: lending his approval to the views expounded by Mr. Magrath and Mr.: Green. The Herald is a-bie to give this an emphatic denial. Seen today; by a Herald reporter, Mr. Knight'said he was a supporter of reciprocity.

The action of the opposition In ob- structing business In i way as to prevent a vote on the so-called re- ciprocity pnct, left no other course open for the government but to sub- mit the matter to the country. There la, therefore, to my mind no other Issue before tlie people of Canada to- ed .until it wont out of pover, and there was r-.arer a time during its activity it would not hv.'e gladly welcomed an .-ij'rinsv.-inent as this.

Those who are protected are the people agnin-3t whom organized la- bor Is fiBhtino all the time." So says Frank Duffy, general secretary of tile United 0rotherhocd of Carpeiit-ars and Joiners of America, who is In the city today. Duffy said that the svilfl of protection .and tariff came home to 'him with significance. Point- ing to a little hndgo he wore as mem- ber of tho union, he snlri thai Canada Ian members had to pay more for it would disappear, and .there. would bo general free trade, in which direction reciprocity was a guod and right move. Beware the Bunkum Tho opponents of tariff reduction tried to beguile the working man with tales of cheap labor, and the influx of others who would throw tho working man out of his Job. Their otatements were only ''bunkum. All the choap labor they spoke of, coirtd be fonbd >ven now under the tariff system, and If there was more under a freer sys- tem of trade, the unions would know bow to deal with It. Protected Ocr- nany had about tho cheapest labor in Uurope, and again the United States In the shape of duty, while their peri-j had about the highest, proving that cdical, "The ccst consld-f the rise and was not due to tariff, orably more in Canada than.
