The Truth Established THE LOCAL CONSERVATIVE ORGAN accused the Her- ald of misquoting the Ottawa Journal when it quoted an article froni that paper saying that it was generally believed that the American trusts, had provided a million dollar campaign fund to fight 'reciprocity in Canada. The local opposition jour- nal publishes a telegram from James Mulr, said to -be managing editor of the Otunva Journal, saying: "State- ment that Ottawa Journal confirms report Conservative financed by big American trusts Is fabrication. Jour- nal said remise." That does not condemn the Her- ald's report. The Herald did not say that in its editorial capacity tho Journal had made any such state- ment. It did '.say that "the Journal published a special despatch from New York definitely confirming the report that the Conservatives art being ete., and then said: "The Journal prints the giving the extract complained of. It our -valued contemporary wll look up the Ottawa Journal of Sept page 10, It will find the paragraphs which the Herald published, being part of a letter from the Journal's correspondent in New York. The Herald does not knowingly misquote or mlsreport, and the peo- ple have learned- that if anything is positively stated in the Herald to be tru-e, that it IK true. In this partic- ular case, look'up the Ottawa Jour- nal of Sept. 9 and the Herald of Sept. 1-1 and tee It its report is cor- rect. IT IS now or never for 'reciprocity. After fifty years of trade hostil- ity, the United States has signi- fied desire for better trade relations and baa made to the people of Canada offer at reciprocity such as the lat- ter hare been desiring, and trying to get during that half century. If the offer is refused now, it will not be in this generation that another such offer is made, nor will it he accepted by the Americans 'should Canada at a later date make the offer. It. Is now or nev- er. There are yet many citizens who -ire not yet. clear in their own minds as to whether reciprocity will prove-a good thing or not The supporters of the agreement say it will he deohledly to the advantage of the Canadian people. Its opponents say it will be a bad thing for the country. Numerous argu- .ments and nnmberless statistics have been advanced by the two sides to prove their respective continuous. For the man in doubt-there is only Give Reciprocity a Trial one thing to do, and that Is to give it a trial. If, when adopted, reciprocity proves in Its working the contentions of its supporters, It will he a good thing, -ind should be continued. The country will continue to make progress and there will be no desire to change the condition of affairs, no govern- ment will attempt to sot it aside if It proves the advantages claimed for it. But if, after a trial. It it proved not to be a good thing, it can be easily terminated, and no government would try to retain It After its abrogation, tho trade- relations would he the same as they are today. In giving reciprocity a trial, the country Is taking no chances." The people win, if It is not good. But If ihey reject It noiv, they will never know whether It would have been good or not Even .the man who made no study of the Issue, or who has not gathered any Information on the jub- ect, can aoo the advantage of giving it a trial. He'can't loae. ile may win. :io takes no chances. you think of the jwrty iead- be grown and grown at ft profit. The opponents of reciprocity are trying to persuade the Western farmers tlmt they don't want to grow barley, -because they can't. They say tliffs in the same speeches in which they taik loyalty and knock tlte country. Fine loyalty, that What would the. 'peoplt! of this coun- try say of a man who would come among- them at'any other time, and the farmers of the West they cannot grow barley successfully? Ev- erybody would jump on him with both feet, and condemn him as a hnocKer, and he would deserve it, as ao th'e p6Htical campaigners who are knocking the country in the same ray. B. A. Bedford, professor of field husbandry, in the Manitoba Agricul- tural College (the Manitoba govern- ment is Conservative and anti-reci- procity, by .the is probably the jest authority in Western. Canada on crop matters. In a'letter to a friend who wrote him orr the matter, Prof. Bedford said: 'As (in evidence that exceltent- malting barley can be produced in this country, I might mention that several years ago I grew at Brandon .hreB samples of barley, which took wp first prij.'es and one second prize for malting purposes at the Jolonial Exposition in London, Eng- and, agftlnat ail the colonies in the British I still have the med- als von on that occasion. In addi- ion to this, Dr. Wm. Saund'ers, in a number of bulletins published in he early nineties, shows clearly that excellent malting barley can he pro- .riuced iu :ill parts of Western Can- ada. We must not forget, however, that Mensury -barley, kind usual: ly grown here for seed purposes, is not a first-class variety for malting purposes, but it is an easy matter to change to sonic other variety, if the market demands it. I think the Un- ited States brewers prefer what is known as Wisconsin barley. .This, understand., is yep' similar to the common' baVjey of. Ontario, which grows readily here." Prof, Bedford for many years farming in the constituency which R. S. Lake, the retiring member for Qu'Appelle, represented, and where he is telling tire farmers they do not want' the good prices .paid for 'barley in the United '-Stahss'i' because the; cannot grow it successfully. For twenty years Prof. Bedford was EII- r'print-amlenrt '.lirnndon Ex- perimental Farm, in the constituency J. A. M.

Do You Ever Wonder 7 Canadian lines their American Hues? That is a specimen of the loyalty Sir William Van llorn-3 talks His company, when he was pre- sident as well as now, gives the Unit- ed States people better rates than they give their own Canadian peqpl's. pie. North Dakota, speaking in the Unit- ed States senate on June 14, said: "The average barley yield in Canada is SO 'bushels, and it costs ?S to pro- ruce an acre of barley. It costs 27 cents a ihushel In Canada. The yield In the United States ts 25 hush-sis, and the cost per bushel 32 cents, or 5 cents more per bushel than in Canada. With the tariff removed, Canada could easily supply tlie en- tire -barley market of the United States." When Sir Will jam Van Home was asked if he was Roinj? to continue plat- form work against reciprocity, he said: "I received a great many invi- tations to speak in other places, and I j will (probably go to Upper Canada or the West, to accept, some of them. 1 cannot say where I will speak, as 'he Seven 'oppposirion candidates in -arrangements are being made by rjie Quebec have come out for recipro- campaign managers, amU will leave it city: Mondon in Yamaslta; Barretto to them to make the announceniPim in in Berthier; Gilbert in Arttmbaska: j their own way.
