U is pe- culiar also to hear a man talking of sense and yet advocating nn effori to fully studied the various phases the issue the speeches made by Messrs. Magralh and Bennett for the most of living in Hie United Slates seemed quite reasonable. But tuo ex-j a mi Britain, hut will tioi do so in Can- differ. A man who is probab- uda? ]y the best known stock South !Benems Qr nQ Benftfits ern Alberta was Heard to say after' the meeting. "Talk about sicers! What does R. B. Bennett know about steers? His talk was all nonsense. I am in the business and I know that recipro- city will raise tbe price of And so it is with (he-other argument! that were put forth. In some cus'ei statements and arguments wen half right and "in others wholly wrong Magrath's Crimp But "j.ust in pissinii" as Mr. Ben ncit, so sagely remarked, Mr. Ma has put a crimp in one of the stock arguments of the anti-reciprocity cam paigners when he told his hearers ''you can thank the Conservative party for the privilege of voting on this ciprocity iss.no on September 21 st, There is no doubt about it, we obstruct- u little while after he blamed the government for having Lhe elec- tion'come on iluring harvest and be- fore the redistribution could be made. He evidently- thinks the c-retlit or biiime is divided between the two part- ies. Bennett's Crimp And "just in passing" it might-be remarked that Mr. Bennett put the main argument' of .the local anti-reci- procity gum ;boot brigade put. of com- mission when he, declared that he was not in the least afraid of annexation if reciprocity.is adopted amf that 'ne had too' 'high a rtaoect manhood to think ,It capable of such The" well worn can visaing: Favored Nations Treaties And as regards the Favored Nation Treaties, it may be noted in passing that Mr. Magrath does not expect any iKirnrto come from ttfe'm but that there is a possibility of-it-and if there Another rather peculiar position that tognto them.. So Where's, the scare' may be noted in passing, is that taken Fiscal Independence by Mr. Magrath that "if we had'used J it, was noted by those present that ordinary horse sense and kept quiet, j Mr. Bennett had a terrible fenr of we would have got what we are gett- the "big stick" that Uncle Sam woul-' ing and give nothing in return." This use to cause Canada to its fiscal independence. .lust in passing, it might be well to remind him and hi ncnrers that the same Canadian ma a thought of annexation not tol- erate dictation from Washington any .other capital in fiscal matters. There is no reason to believe that the secure "something for nothing." Such American people would try it and if .1 course is generally culled "akin i they should, there is every reason to ame" and is acknowledged to be poor believe that they would not succeed business because the person who tries Canada's fiseal independence is in no such a game invariably gets j way endangered any more than is its through About Steers Just in', passing ii may be remarked that Mr. Bennett's argument regarding steers is contrary to the statement of men who know the cattle business as Mr. Bennett does not, except as pos- sibly they may concern the G. P. H. freight earnings. Buyers at tlie.prcs- ;ent time are in the country offering from to a head more for cattle on condition that reciprocity passes, and the same is true of horses. Mr. Bennett's average prices regarding the latter do not signify anything -as in Alberta and Saskatchewan a better class of horjr's ure raised than in -Mon- tana or the. other, states, which he com- pared. His figures were the average for all classes of horses. The Trusts It. is worth ..mentioning in passing that Mr. Bennett's, fear of and paper trusts is..belied by the fact that these very trusts were the bitterest enemies the reciprocity agreement, had the United States and they- today ire spending large sums of money to nave it defeated in Canada, Hopeless Opposition In '.'it may be noted jiisii in passing that both Mr. Magrath a Mr. Bennett tacitly admitted OWNERS OF Suite 115 Sherlock Building P.O. Box 1979 Phone 1291 But his position does not allow for! political independence, ami Mr. Ben- the fact that it would be impossible their speeches that phrases of "How can be a Britisher and vote and "reciprocitj means annexation" will have 10 be aside now as useless, arid the standing type of "Champ 'Clarke's Vision" and "The parting of the .ways" will.h-.ivs to be pied, for mouth of the Cal- g'.-ry hero, orator and leader hath spo- ken It. It was cruel oC Mr. Bennett to deprive the leading supporters of Mr. Magrath of their main "campaign talk and literature. Party's Past Repudiated It might bo remarked also, jtist in passing, that neither Mr. Magrath, nor Mr. Bennett denied tiliat the Conser- vative party had been through all its 735iorr a .pro-reciprocity party and j .'either tried tc reconcile the Horden party's position with (hat Of the Tory party in days gone by. Mr. Magrath said that lhe past policy of the party made no difference to him. It was noticeable also that he made no effort to ireconcile his own position last December when he told tlte farmers' delegation in Ottawa iliat favored their demands, reciprocity included, would help Ihem to get them when he absolutely opposed the graining of the firsi fundamentally important, 'or tdio Democratic party in whom his lopes of getting something for noth- ng centred, ran not tear down ihe a riff wall while Taft is president and e will be In office till March 1913 at east, -with a. -possibility of being re- elected for another four years. As ang as he Is president will) no sirong- r opposition than he has at presen e can exercise his .veto power as h id a few weeks ago on the farmei ree list and tihe woolen bills, .very least "calculation it would b ighieen, months before the Canadia eople could ''get ..this something fo o tiling.' Coniervation '-Policy- Still, another remark that may bi made in passing, is that Mr, MagraU advocated the policy of the aborigine: of this country witia regard to the na lural resources. Me spoke of tht American people wanting our natura resources because theirs were deplet cd and claimed that they should be kept for development iby Canadian people. Mr.' Bennett upheld the same pplicy. But both failed to see that natural resources are useless un ess developed, that while Canada is growing big enough to use them, mil- ions of dollars worth of timber, fish meant Innda and .untouched minerals are going to wnste. The pulp-forests >f the northern part of western C-.tn- tda are annually losing hy the death of the trees, millions of dollars worth of pulp that should be turned into money of fish arc dying that might be turned into cash and these well as the minerals -and lands city will be adopted. recipro- speeches there was a nett says he has no fear of the latter.
