This was demonstrated in the case-.of Mr. Raymond Knight, who occupied a seat on the platform ut the Magrath mooting at Itaymond, as a friend and business associate of 'Mr, Magrath. On the same plntfforni was Mayor II. S. Young in the capacity ot chair- man. What could be more natural in a town where there Is uo Conser- vative association and therefore no president of such an organization, than that the mayor ot the town should be called upon to Introduce the speakers. Kvidently without en- aulrlng as to the stand taken by the two gentlemen referred to the N'ews in the report of the Magrath meeting guaged the strength of the .opponents ot reciprocity 'by the presence of Ray Knight nud 'Mayor Young on the plat- form. And some Lethbrldge Conser- vatives actually believed thc 'News. So to make sure, the Raymond corre- spondent ot the TIerald ..interviewed the gentleman as to their polities. The interview with Mr. Knight was published in Saturday's issue iind no doubt can 'be entertained as to his stand. When the Herald approached Mr. Young he laughed and said: "You can tell the press that if Mr. Buchan- an wishes me to take the platform in his interests and the interest of reciprocity I'll do it. I'm as strong an advocate as any man can and it was only a few moments later when [Secretary-treasurer McDufTie Informed the reporter that Mayor Young would be one of the speakers for reciprocity at the Welling meeting on Wednes- day next. Asked about the applause when -Mr. Knight appeared on the platform, the mayor said lie had no idea it was for Mr. Knight any more than any one erse on the platform. IJersonalitiea arc not counting for much in tills election with such a big issue as reciprocity at state. As mayor of the town, the Herald wished to get Mr. Young's views on the effect of reciprocity on the town, nnd in answer to an .Inquiry, made the observation that in Canada the busi- ness man in the towns and dependent for bis success on the pros-, perlty ot the farmer. Measures that add "to the farmer's prosperity there- fore help the merchant and the town, and for that reason the business men in this country should be out and out for reciprocity and tho larger markets which will msan so much to the farm- Since the present campaign is in reality a fight of the farmers and producers against thc protected inter- ests it is the duty of the farmer to exert his Influence in his own behalf with those who are not so directly terested or who are indifferent. The farmer should not overlook the influ- ence he possesses among thei people ot the towns and villages wltli whom he does business. If there is any disloyalty among the Canadian people it must be among those anti-reciprocity forces. They are the only people who apparently doubt their own attachment to their country. They need not do any wor- rying about the loyalty ot the people who simply want to, get a better re- turn for their labors. CHINESE NATIVES ARE HOSTILE New York, Sept. cable today from Shanghai, says: Disorders am- ong the natives in northern Chuan are increasing.

In an easy but distinct manner Mr. Herron explained away, by reference .0 letters and other means, his own stability as favor of the reel- irocity pact in spite of the widespread negations which had been published to the contrary. At the same time :io did not forget to lament his 111 .isage at the hands of the provincial iiress of the district, though conclud- ing that portion of his remarks with the statement that the Herald, through its Pincher Creek co-- respondent, had stated two monthl age he (Mr. Herron) was out for reci- procity. Having established himself u exponent of the reciprocity measure, Mr. Herron launched into the term- nal elevator question, direct taxation, ttve free admission of agricultural im- lementa and other subjects, taking advantage of the occasion to denounce the Laurler administration on the Janadian navy and other measures pf the past.

Why should she now; put her fiscal system in the hinds of the American politicians? The Premier had in 1S03 and 1907 bidden good-bye to reciprocity and had em- barked upon the Grand Trunk scheme at an enormous expenditure to lolid Ify Canadian trade along CmnadUn lliics.

The British capital invested in this Canadian farming company, evidently does not fear the effect of reciprocity but looks forward to greater markets spelling success for their investments. This company has three steam outfits, five gasoline outfits, one hundred 01- en and a number of mules at work on their acre farm northeast of Sufllekl.
