Bennett IN THE steer question is it Bal- oovski, cattle dealer, versus Bennett, the C. P. R. solicitor. You keep your money (advice given free) and take your choice. Balcov- ski says reciprocity will increase the price of cattle, and paid five dollais R head more himself, in anticipation of the rise after September 21. Ben- nett says the price will not advance because of reciprocity. Who ought to know? Incidentally, it might be mentioned that Balcovski's opinion Is backed up by other cattle men, like W. H. Paves, of Gordon, Ironsides and Fares: George Lane. Archie McLean Hay Knight, J. F. Bradshaw, and a host of ojners, who know the market and know the 'business. Besmirching a Fair Name, IT IS KI3.MAKKAUbB''.to note lite milliner in which Tory organs and Tory speakers discount their own countrymen. We have the To- ronto News stating that It tuts more lalth In Mr. boltaf that reciproc- ity In nntnntl products will lead to reciprocity in manufactures, tlwn in tho statement of Mr. Mackenzie Klnn, that (ho Lander government will not touch, the tariff on factory products. Mr, K. B Osier, the candidate for Toronto, casts a slur on Can- adians in general by declaring that tbe present Issuo was really for or against annexation with the l-nlteil States, and presumably as the saviour of tho nation in stepping into the breach. All Tories, in writing and Dy word of mouth, look upon Canad- an manufacturers as men without backbone, for do ihey not, time ami in, keep on repeating that our nat- ural products arc to be drawn off to the L'nftcd States in tho crude state, nd shipped thence to Europe, and ov- en back to Canada, in manufactured form, and so affecting tbe home man- utactnrer. According to them our] joor manufacturers will simply fold heir arms, and on. They will i lot avail t Hems-elves of these raw pro-1 liicts to build up their own uuum-1 because the Americans can i Slates, mid thuii destroy tho roiM tlon of his Canadian broiul. This Is; sorry series of pictures, and how can men who prate In this manner have tho audacity to expect to enr.ii the confidence of tlioso in whom (hoy thus openly express'no confidence themselves1.' They not only'have no faith In their own coun- trymen, but look upon them in- fit nisi who need to bo pampered. They are to have atl added temptations, or consMere'd temptalIons, re- moved, to prevent them from becom- ing disloyal. It is argued that the Canadian far- mer cannot compete with those- of Ar- gentine, .Now Zealand and other coun- tries, although they are doing this, and more than holding their own, when brought into comuotttion in op- markets. Let the people remem- ber that these very men who :iro be- littling them are the men who would want them to believe that they are so infinitely superior to tho ordinary that.the salvation of the country de- pends on them alone. They are ar- rogantly assuming to themselves a monopoly of all the virtues, and are striving to find a.way into power by precisely the same menus employed by .Miihdis, Indian medicine men, and obtain them on the same terms. The Canadli'.n dealer Is going to make ut-j i of the inferior products of the United I hers of the same kidney, namely, by trading on the credulity of, as they believe, an unmtellisent and irrespon- sible people. OUR POINT OF VIEW Vote for Buchanan, Laurier, Reci >rcicU.v, and Larger Markets. It can be expected any time, that he anti-reciprocity press will deny hat even the temperature is higher n the United States than in Canada. Parties to a Plot 'HE CONSERVATIVE PRESS, Pie of Canada into defeating rec A with much smugness, is quoting expressions of some American agricultural journals, which opine that reciprocity will 'lead to annexa- tion. At the same time, Tory papers know that the agricultural pa- pers of the States are as unanimously opposed to reciprocity as the Canad- ian agricultural papers are in favor of it. This annexation talk by pa- pers on the other side of the line is just an attempt to stampede the peo- procity. It' reciprocity would lead to annexa- tion, the chances are ten to one that those same papers would strongly sup- port it. But what they fear is not the annexation of Canada to the Unit- ed States, but that the Canadian ar- mors, fishermen and lumbermen-will annex the American markets and pric- es, and incidentally many millions of American money. There's the rub The Death of John T. Hall BY THE DEATH of John T. Hall, Western Canada loses one of its most widely known and hisrhly respected citizens. This city loses Us publicity and industrial commissioner within a few months of his having undertaken his most im- portant duties, which he was so inently qualified to perform. Mr. Hall, while alderman of the city of Hamilton, showed such an aptitude for the work to which he later devot- ed, that his colleagues appoint- ed him assessment comtniE-oloner 01 the city, the office carrying with it not only the assessment, but the pro- secution of the publicity and indus- trial work. During the yeurs he held position, Mr. Hall did much Hamilton, and its splendid position in the industrial world today is due very largely to hfe efforts. Feeling the lure of the West, Mr. Hall came to Medicine Hat, where for two years he was industrial, and publicity commis- sioner, and It is generally acknow- ledged that the industrial develop- ment at that place is the result of labors. After spending a y-ear at 1 Brandon, doing similar work, :Mr. Hall came to Lethbridge last June. Hi lamented death cut short his work al- most before he could get, it going. Tho Board of Trade and the citizens generally had confidence that he would accomplish much for the city with his energy, knowledge and ex- perience in his chosen work. His death is deeply lamented, not only in the city, where his excellent quali- ties of character and ability were be- coming known, tint also throughout Western Canada, where was widely and favorably known, not only as a publicity expert, 'but ns secretary of two very important organizations, the Associated Boards of Trade of Western Canada and the Western Ca- nada Irrigation Association. Mr. Hall's untimely death at a com- paratively early age, and at the height of his useful career, is most deeply deplored. The sympathy of more than ore cornK.y.'.iy extended to the Ifu'hrully watched at His tq his other rela- tives and rrieiids, who are called up-, on to suffer a severe los: death. hi; 44 The Soul of Canada" RUDYARD KIPLING, with his us- ual impetuosity, has stepped into the field of Canadian pol- Itics.'and has given the anti-reclproc- Ity party a new slogan, which they too readily have rushed to adopt. The inspiration has been borrowed from the well known story of the game of chess, In which the man wag play ing against the devil, the stake being the soul of th-a man. The inference Crom the analogy can not toe more distasteful to the Am- erican citizen, than to every member. of tho English-speaking It has always been the boast that the peace of the world depended on tho good feeling, and the amity, of the two great Anglo-Saxon nations. Tho sentiment of one of England's fore- moat writers, brought forward at a time when the echoes of the Arbl- ,1 tration treaty signed by the two na- i tloni have scarcely died away, ie not j only but shows an exc.sert- ingly great want of taste. It is a base attempt to create race prejudices -be- ,j two who arc coutinu- illy to live In peace ind good with one another, for the JMTrtTJ-hcinf and prosperity of both. It Blron's lo condemn communication as being VCfcurcv. scurrilous, not only is it on. the nationhood of the United States, but, likewise, on that of Canada, for does it not hint of Canada pawning its soul for a consideration? This is that same Rudyard Kipling who took occasion to belittle the aplr- it of athleticism in Great Britain, by culling those who manifested it "mud- died oafs" and "flannelled un- mindful of the assertion of the great Duke of Wellington that the battle of Waterloo waa won on the playing fields of Eton, To follow Mr, Kln- Jlne'B, fount of Inspiration, the story goes that In tho manipulation of the pieces on tho the last move of the man, when the situation looked hopeless, formed the sign of the croai, when the devil fled away, shrieking. Now, there is a true application to the incident, the soul of Canada, and, for the matter of that, the soul of the .United Stales, is at stake agalhit the big trusts, which, aoeinj In re- ciprocity a nail in their coffin, are using their money to defeat it in Ca- nada. Let every voter In the riding, who realizes the evils of these trusts, do his duty on the twenty-first day of September, and scnre that tnia.1 do- moh away, by affixing his cross uftor the name of W. A, Buchanan, Reciprocity gives the privilege to in the American markets, if they lappen to be the best at the time the producer wants to sell. It dc-ri not compel trade, except as the higher price is the compelling force. "1 am not the least afraid of annex- ation. 1 have too great a respect for Canadian manhood to think of it. I deplore the placing of such an issue before so many of our new citizens." B. Bennett, Majestic Theatre, Friday, September S. The miners who heard R. B. Ben- nett's address, can hardly believe him when he said that Canadian workmen were the best paid under the sun. They have the idea that when they quit work last April, one of th-air de- mands was that the scale of wages should be raised to equal the scale in Montana. A miller is the reciprocity candi- date-in West Hastings, Ontario. No fear of reciprocity there. Maybe some Tory miller will suggest that tho farmers of Hastings will stop growing wheat In order to set the good barley prices reciprocity will bring. At any rate, Mr. Hubbcll, tho miller, is not afraid of reciprocity hurting his business. The Calgary papers intimate that R. B. Bennett has changed his mind about his fear of annexation. That is not unexpected among Conserva- tive candidates. C. A. Magrath chang- ed his in a few wpek-s about support- ing reciprocity. John Herron chang- ed his half a dozen times in as many mouths. Glen Campbell, W. D. Slap-, les. Dr. Schaffner, "all changed theirs' between the time the fanners met them in when they had to line up or against their party, F. A. Morrison, in Victoria, now says he is in favor of "legitimate form of re- ciprocity" with the United atates.-He opposed it absolutely when he first came out. Surely, in such company, Mr. Bennett is entitled to change his mind about being'scared of annexa- Qthers The Agreement Speaks (Manitoba Free Press.) One very significant thing about the reciprocity discussion is that the Liberals are distributing the actual agreement by tens of thousands lor the information of the electors, where- as the Conservatives are careful to do nothing along this line. The ss- reement speaks for Itself. Two Aspects (Winnipeg Tribune.) In Canada both the producer and the consumer are hedged in. The man who raises hogs shut out from his best and nearest" market, the Un- ited States, by the American tariff wall. He is compelled to accept what he can get at home. The man who buys hacon and the ham made from these hogs is compelled to pay the price the packers ask-or do without, because of the Canadian tariff wall, which is intended to keep out Ameri- can foods.

The strongest opposition conies, he says, Utter Imbecility (Prince Albert Herald.) Is it not utter imbecility to argue that it is'wrong, to gain free access to a great market, and is it not also economically criminal to put on such a trade restriction as would delib- erately interfere with our reaching that market? Canada has gone to great expense and years of toilsome organization to find markets for her products, and here we are, asked to turn from our nearest market, and the one reached most easily of all, The North 'and South Idea (Montreal Herald.)

Some of the more candid Conserva- tives admit that their party was onoe in favor of reciprocity, but say that 'times have changed." The day on which the change took place was Jan- uary 2fi, when Mr. Fielding announc- ed that the negotiations for reciproc- ity had been successful. Up to that time, the Opposition method was to jeer- at the Government, and to re- proach them because they had not ful- filled their promise to obtain ity. Mr. J. W. Edwards, then M. P. for Frontenac, in a speech made on .lami ary 21, said: "Our tariff
