A Voluntary Agreement ARE STILL, some Conser- J_ vative papers and campaigners who persist in proclaiming that .reciprocity IB a hard and fast treaty, ibut 3ucli is not as Is well i established by the explanatory docu- ment from the Canadian diplomats to Secretly Knq.t, at. Washington, and i agreed to him on behalf at the i United States. As an official inter- pretation, mutually acceptable, It ap- pears to be quite specific iu its terms, and BO honest man can doubt its pur- .portj "Nevertheless, ft is distinctly un- derstood that we do not attempt to bind for the future the action of the United States Congress or the Parlia- ment of 'Canada, but that each of these authorities shall be absolutely free to make any change of tariff pol- icy or of any other matter covered by the present agreement that may be deemed expedient. We look for a continuance "of the because either party is bound to it. The Liberals s.nd a host of Conser- vatives are so confident In the ulti- mate success of reciprocity that they do not contemplate such a contingency as either country desiring to abro- gate the agreement and go 'back to the old conditions that prevailed un- der a high .protective tariff. The Principle Still Holds IT IS A SIGNIFICANT PACT that no effort Is being put forth by Hon.

Freer access to the United States markets ia just as necessary to our commercial and ag- ricultural prosperity as it was twenty years ago, and ev-eu more so, because the producing capacity of this coun- try is far in espeas of its consuming power. -Reciprocity is simply an agreement that will operate automatically as soon as It is ratified by the Canadian parliament, and it can 'be abrogated at any time that either the United States or Canada earnestly desire to do so. There is no aroHrary compul- sion about it It is even much better than tlie form of unrestricted recipro- city thaT. was discussed several years ago. The principle of freer the same, "but the present pact holds cer- tain limitations and yet is not -binding like a formal treaty would 'be for a specified term of years, therefore it can toe commended to all loyal Can adiaus who earnestly desire liberty to buy and sell in the most conven- ient and most profitable market any- where In the world. Roblin on Independent Voting would to vote for 'reciprocity, becairse; they 'believe It would be a good thing for ttiem, and for the country, -but they cannot bring them- selves to roto for Laurier and the Liberal party. But no roan should feel that he is bound
