The op- ponent! of reciprocity both in this constituency anil in the country as a whole, have become convinced that they are in a losing light. Reciprocity will win. To turn impending defeat into victory, often desperate means are and some- times they work. Fake telegrams, stories of withdraw- al, social, financial, or political scan- dal, marvellous discoveries just reveal- ed, all sorts of things are resorted to In order to stampede the electors at Iho test minute. Electors should be on their guard. These terrible things sprung at the end of a campaign are invariably fakes, desperate efforts to save a lost The party that is afraid it can- not win on its merits is the one that trumps .up these roorliachs.

Yet every Conservative candidate Is doing the -same as Tupper. Reciprocity and Manufactures SAVE our natural resources and encourage our home manu- facturers defeating reci- procity, is one of the favorita argu- ments" of the opponents of lira ag- reement. They tell the people that the Americans will get our-raw ma- terials, such as wheat, lumber and pulpwood, take them down across the line, manufacture the finish-ad pro- duct and then '3hlp back to Canada to compete with the Canadian man- ufacturer. That contention is surely going to use a slang expression. If the United States manufacturers can buy the raw material In Can- ada for the name price as the Can- adian manufacturers pay, pay freight on it to their places of manufacture, pay freight back to Canada. and_ pay duty on tlreir manufactured goods and then undersell the Canadian manufacturers, it proof positive I that the Canadian manufacturers are making a mcsl enormous profit, out of ail reason, when interests of the consimrer.3 are considered. Whatsrer reciprocity may do to some Interests, it is .absolutely cer: tain, it cannot injure tbe legitimate manufacturers who are satisfied with Anything to Beat Laurier SIR HIBBERT TUPPBR, with one arm around Bourassa's and the oth'ar aroimd Borden, presents a pretty picture to the loyal citizens of Canada anil Britain. Sir Hfbbert says that he has In the past condemned Botirassa ns an enemy of the country, but that he is now willing to welcome him or Monk, or any one else, to defeat Laur- ier. And think of it. R. L- Borden, the Conservative loadsr, flag-waver, appellant to the British-born, ultra- ImperialMt, thirty-third degree loyal- ist, was on the platform when Sir 'Hlbbert mscte this admission. (Mr. Voter, take that home and think it Lanrier is condemned became he Ii not British -enough. Tbe govern- ment condemned -because It has i proposed a measure of reciprocity i with the United States that will sure- ly and certainly lead to separation ifrom ttaa Empire and annexation to the United States. Yet tlie-3e same Conservatives, who thus condemn Laurier and th-2 wal- corns to their midst! support in their eampalgn, and encourage In way, this Nationalist bunch, Bouras- H, Monk, Prevost, Lavergne and oth- ers, who condemn Laurier, .Lemieux, Brqdeur, Belaud, and tbe otttir mem- bers of the government as being too British; -who appeal to thsir French- Canadian fellow-citizens to condemn Laurier tecause he has helped Bri- tain in time of war with armiea, and Is preparing to do it with a navy, if need be; avowedly want separa- tion Britain, and who insult in every possible way tlve British na- the British flag, and decry Ca- nada's connection with .both. Can there be any more disgusting spectacle 'before the eye of any true Canadian? Can the loyal Briton, on British-born or British naturalized, stand for such an incongruous com- bination! Can Canada be trusted to the care of the Borden-Bouras'ja al- Sir Hlbbert acknowledges, as ton every other Conservative that the party Mnnot defeat louder with- out of BourMsa. They are trusting BJIWMM to btwak Laurler's influence In Qnftwc. Thoy .are sup- plying him -with money for his campaign. They art; not pulling cuHlldiitM vtirrt tie nominating men, tnrt vice Tiny hive Joint Coimervntlve-Natlomillst candidates, Hire Jos. Cousinean, in Wright county, and others. Where will Canada be if th-e com- bination should "win? Borden and p'.he party do not hope to have a majority without the sup- port of Bc-urassa's hoped-for hunch of Nationalist members. That means that Borden will be at mercy of Bonras-sa, and that means that Can- ada will hav-a Bonrassft as Its dicta- tor. Talk about the calamities the op- ponents of reciprocity see following Its adoption. They may >be real, or they may be fancied. That is not the Question under discussion. But the ca- amlitles that willbefaII Canada when the Nationalist separatist, anti-British Botirassa rules this coun- try, do not require any imagination; they are such that any loyal Canad- ian slniddeiy to think of. Only those who are blinded with a hatred for LaurierJ such as possesses Bourassa and Tuppflr, can fall to aee the awful predicament Canada would he in if the Borden-Bourassa alliance should be triumphant. The Tory party Is sowing to the wind, and will reap tirti whirlwind, but unfortunately Ca- nada and the. Empire will foe the worst sufferers when the whirlwind comes. The only way to prevent the cal- amity Is to support Sir Wilfrid Laur- ier against the combination. To do this th'a Liberal candidates must be supported. _What matter Magrath's or Bemlftt'fl" speeches of loyalty and devotion to the country and its Inter- ests. If they go to Ottawa as the pledged supporters of Borchen, and hence with him in the Bor- den-Bourasia alliance. Mugrftth and Bennett must vote, if they ara elect- 'ad, to and please nonrassa, so as to keep him and his party in line supporting the party. They cannot deny that that is the position they would he In. There ra no other possible position for them, If thicy are A vote for Magrath ,or flerron, or Ben- nett, or any Conservative can- didate, Is a vote for Bourassa. and cannot, under the present circumstan- ces, be anything telse. Therefore, vole lor Buchanan, and the ether Lilwral candidates, not only for reciprocity, but aldo as condemn- ation of the unholy, un-Brltlsh al- liance of Ihp Conservative and Na- tionalist iKirtlei. Gratifying Compensation (Woodstock Santinel-Iieviev.O A Conservative contemporary, which is opposing the proposed trade agreement, professes to believe that reciprocity Is a disintegrating force in tire Liberal party. Reciprocity is testios the sincerity and the manhood of both parties. But the Liberal party has nothing to fear from-the result. It is losing some supporters, who really never belonged to it, ex- cept in name: -but it is saining many, many more, who, calling themselves Conservatives, have all the time really Liberal at heart, Liberal in thought and outlook. Both parties will no doubt, be the better for tho readjustment. Th'a Liberal party, at any rate, will not be weakened by the I loss of a dozen or so of men, who jure' so little in sympathy with Liber- alism tlmt tbe.v allow themselves to tak-e fright at the prospect of so sim- ple a measure of freedom as the pro- posed reciprocity agreement.

William Templeniau: said, that "It there is any- thing In the argument that tire duty enhances, the'.' price, as I haTO no doubt U does, tten it mtrat have en- hanced the price of the large ationo from Alberta and Saskatche-' wan. The people of this province have paid in enhanced price 000." According to the saui'a authority, Mr. Bennett, in discussing the loss to the oat growers of Alberta, quotes 5Ir. Templeman as -aaying: "Yes. That j Is tree. I know, because I had a com-1 putation rnati'a ami found that the j farmers of Alberta and Saskatchewan j have received a million nine hundred thousand dollars per annum more, than we would have to pay, had we bought our products from Washing- ton and Oregon." To convict Mr. B-ennett of a gross j misrepresentation, all that is neces- j la to bring, on the statement] by Mr. McCarthy, examine tbe two. As a matter of (act, neither state- ment is correct, Mr. TempKman dirt not make any computation, as Mr. Bennett says, and he made no such statements Mr. McCarthy says. That certain. Mr. Bennett and Mr. McCarthy bas- ed their entire argument upon a huge mistake. Mr. Templeman made no such statement. For, how could They are pay- ing 50 cents a bushel for oafj in Port- land, Seattle and Spokane tcday, ag- ainst 35 cents in Calgary. With the exception of last year, which, as all know, was a bad year in Alberta, Cal- gary grain men shipped oata from here to Washington, and sold them there after paying tire duty and the freight. If Mr. Bennett wants to deal fairly with this nimstion, and IK hon- est about it, why not refer to those facts which cannot be disputed?

Mr. Sifton, who has bcvu. we be- lieve, with tire owner of tbe Family Herald and Weekly Star, strenuously occupied husly in the affairs ot the anti-reciprocity league, is about to sp-salc In Ontario. It K interesting to note that league has been publish- ing in the French newspapers a berles of paid editorials, authorized, we be- lieve, if not written by Mr. Sifton, and intended to lead French Catholics to vote against reciprocity. Tlve French Canadian is told that reciprocity I means annexation, and that onro ill- corporutect in the United States, his Church will be deprived of the priv- ileges which it now enjoys the British flag. That is excellent from the man who forced his way into public life as the antagonist of the privileges which be now coddles. We anticipate that when he reaches On- tario he will preach by insinuation, if not openly, that reciprocity ought to be rejected in order to assuie the ascendancy of Protestantism. But it is not with -Mr. Sifton's play upon racial and religious passion, but j with His economic arguments that we j are especially concerned. These he has already published. His main point is that the exported or export- able products of the farm are to be divided into which aro-of prim- ary and those which are of secondary importancc. These of primary im- portance are wheat arid its products, flour, etc., and those of secondary im- portance are seeds, peas, lysans, hay, vegetables, milk, cattle, horses sheep and the like. Reciprocity, he argues, will raise the p.rice of wheat and 'rl'ourj'- because the' price is determin- ed by the demand in Britain. Broad- ly speaking, that is true. But, there ara-these .qualifications; .For special varieties 'of both wheat and flour there -.ratty, exist ill Una United States i a wid-a demand at prices better than those which might-be realized in Bri- tain. .Further, if, as many contend, our West can-, produce wheat more cheaply than the United States, the tendenet- will be to i'aave the growing of wheat to the Canadian West, 'just ag Ontario has left it, and the Unit- ed States will become our natural wheat and flour.
