Therefore, from vvery point people, and there arc at least two aolkJ reasons for questioning the sin- cerity of the Conservative Imperial- ist profession. The hopes of the Conservatives rest upon the protect- ed manufacturers, and these are tire greatest enemies of the British pre- ference; they are opposed to Its ex- tension and constantly urge its re- striction. Again, the Conservatives cannot turn ths Laurier government out unless they treat it in Quebec, and to do this they have formed'an alliance with the Nationalists. Que- hec is the French province, nnd Mr. Bourassa and Mr. Monk have th'are formed a French party which ia, >be- fore all things, anti-Imperialist It denounces the Canadian navy, and it 'denounces Sir -Wilfrid Lanrler's ac- tion at the Imperial Conference. To give Ibis party a chance of defeating the Liberals in Quebec, the Conser- vatives will run few candidates in that province, but will get friends to vote with the Nationalists. It. Ill heroines a party with such as- sociations to claim the monopoly of Imperial patriotism. It is, of course, rery early to guera the result of th'a conflict. Reciprocity is Relieved to be popular in prairie provinces, n the Eastern provinces, in Qitobcc, except in the industrial areas, and in Ontario, again except In the j rial areas. A Liberal majority Is, generally anticipated, and f it should prove large, a very heavy will have been struck at Can- dian protection, and incidentally at corruption in Canadian politics."

S., o any other country, of which there not at the present even a remote pro bability. it will be because tilie Canad ian people themselves wish it, and no by those outside, who desire to fiav us. It is one thing to desire an oh ject, and finite another to Have all heard of the child crying fo lie moon. The people of Alaska recently desir ed to be annexed to Canada, but we do not hear that the government a Washington granted (heir desire. O course, there is no attempt to coerce Canada, by force of arms, the time I past for that, previous attempts to the adolesence of our country having proved abortive.' The Boer War allow- ed how impossible it would be for any lower to succeed in an enterprise o Jiat kind, even if Canada were alone and not backed by the power of the whole British Empire. It, must be by the power attrac tion that our Conservative friends are BO apprehensive of being absorbed What, it may bo well to enquire, uro he attractions which a Republican orm of government, aa exemplified for 135 years upon our border, upon which our friends count to hypnotize us into adopting that form of govern- ment? Is it because they ask us for a freer exchange of commodities, the benefits of which will be mutual, and if, on trial, are found unsatisfactory to either party, can foe dissolved? Is at because they arc more moral than [we? Their own statistics show thirty times more crime per capita than Ca nnda. So that will not be very at- tractive, but quite repulsive to Can- ada. Is it because Uicy have fowor lynchings than we? Their statistics show' that lynchings are -no longer confined to the South and the negroes, hut are encroaching upon the North, and have extended to the whites. Certainly this IB not attractive. Is it because they have fewer' divorces than Canada? Tilie record shows an enormous Increase In their divorces, no comparison to Canada, where thny are very few. Americans admit the vast superiority of tho Ca- nadian judiciary, so that would not prove attractive to Canadians. True, .hey have a greater variety ot rellg- ous and medical systems Cana- m, but. notwithstanding the superior- ly of the drngloBs systems, of medi- um treatment, their death rate in noat of tho States Is still higher than in Western Canada, where in rairle provinces the last census tihows a death rate of only 6-io per JiotiBand. It is surely not business iiroaperlty that would prove vo, for the last year we did about Jirec times more business per capita .han tho United and this year s expocted to greatly exceed last. In short. Canada Is conceded to be the Gt prosperous .country on t3ie jlobe today. To assume that a country like Ca- nada, with enormous resources, and laving such a record for mofal and uaterial development and prosperity, would voluntarily desire to adopt the nferlor political institutions of the United States because the latter vants to buy more of our products, to lo a larger business with us, Is, In ny judgment, a wholly unwarranted issumptlon. To avoid any danger of uch a catastrophe, let there be a leeper and wider -education of our 'eople, especially along the line of IUT boundless natural resources, as rlso as the priceless heritage of civil, political and religious liberty.

(Critics of the reciprocity agree ment, in attempting to accentuat the importance of home market .that it consumes from So tc per cent, of the produce of Can ada. The facts, however, do not ac cord with this statement. The Do minion government "Canada Yea Uook" for 1310, give the total ex ports of Canada to all countries, o animals and their produce, and agri cultural products at The Cer.-jns department at Ottawa es timated the total farm products for 1910 at eo that 24 cent, of the total products are export The remaining 7fi per cent, an used on tlva farm and sold in the home market, in what proportion cai not be accurately estimated, Pos sibly it would be nibout half anc lalf. In that not more than S per cent, of Canada's total farm produce is sold in the home market With respect to wheat, the home market is an ever-decreasing factor The per cap.'tn, consumption of wh'eat s, according to the Census Commis- sioner for Canada, (i.24 Put- ting It, however, at K 1-3 bushels, we inri that the. home .consumption ol ,'heat, on the 'basis of a population of .sight millions for Camilla, is only 'bushels. Add nearly half as much again for and we find a josslble home consumption of 100 bushels per annum. This is only 2 per cent, of the estimated wh'aat production of the thrae Western Pro- without taking into account at the wheat grown in Ontario. It would take a population of owr to a'bsorb the present produc- ion of Canadian wheat. In view of ho rapidity with which wheat pro- luction is rrowlng In Canada, it )erfectly safe to say that, for the ext fifty for tho next undred than 60 per cent f tho wheat grown in Canada, will s to be Bold in other than Can- dian markets. In landing the value of the home lorket, tihe opponents of reciprocity eally furnish one of the strongest in its favor.
