Throughout all Canada it has a host of staunch and persistent ad- Tociites.

A couple of weeks ;vso Prince Edward Island Liberals met in a large convention to discuss party plans. Speeches were m-ide by leading Lib- erals of the Maritime Provinces. To vrhat did they give chief prominence in their addresses? Newspaper re- -ports show that the answer is: ei' niartcts." In Hants county, Nova Scotia, two weeks ago the Liberals met in a county rally. One of the chief speak- ers was Hoii. E. II. Armstrong, a mem- ber of the Nova Scotia jjovernimmt. who made "a powerful and effective speech oil the question of broader markets and showed what a calamity the defeat of reciprocity had been." In Vancouver last week Jlon. Joliu Morrissy, a member of the New Brunswick coalition interviewed by the press. In 'the course of the interview Mr. Morrissy expressed himself as believing thru "Reciprocity will play a leading part in the next general election as there is 'considerable feeling in favor of it in his province.1' Reciprocity is indeed very much alive. U.S. Press Criticises AS V- E H pointed out before, unsn mitv -does not exist in the United States in regard to the attitude taken by Congress in regard to the Panama Canal. The press is far from agreeing with the position '.Uncle Sam has assumed, in fact some of the newspapers make very strong atterks rn the President for signing -the bill in ciirec: repudiation of a treaty. .The New York Sun speaks of Pre- sident Taft's act as "infamy linked to and declares that: President Taft's sincere and dis- interested friends will regret both hia approval of the Panama canal bin ami the memorandum in he defends that act. The oppori unity to blunder existed. The President embraced it. The United Stales will have ample cause to rej'.oni, this exploit of its and its executive. The Xew York Herald frankly re- pudiates the basis of the memoran- dum by which the President sought to shield his action signiii.s the and asserts: have opposed the proposal to -exempt coastwise steamships from tolls from the time it was first suggested we felt that it was' a violation of the treaty with Great Britain under 'which the canal was constructed. The New York WorM. witll a force of expression which is characteristic, declares: If we cast conscience to the winds for hoodie, tear our solemn treaties into ribbons for swag. -breal; our deliberate word ol" hon- or for dough, and brazenly refuse to have OUT conduct passed upon by the disinterested tribunal of The Hague, then we are going back to the ethics of the Goths and Che Huns; we are substitut- ing "Right is might" for "In God we trust." The Philadelphia Ledger, a conser- vative journaJ, administers this severe rebuke: It is certain lhat the policy thus formally adopted will involve the United Stares in a and uncomfortable international con- troversy, and k is to be regretted that it should have been provoked in just this way. The passage of the act and the approval was giv- in the face of such wide-spread protest that it will naturally be taken as a challenge not only to .Great virtue of whoso compliance we acquired eyc.lusive control of the canal, but to ail the nations with "which wo have made arbitration agreements.

Altogether, according to Or. John 'A.
