WARNING: TAKE NO CHANCES; VOTE FOR RECIPROCITY In every constituency In Canada CoiiwrvallveB who 'favor reci- procity are being pleaded with to vote for DIG parly candidate on (lie ground that, HB reciprocity IK bound to cona- .anyway, they might well niHlntaln their party regularity. The appeal which is being made to'Inn urgent Conservatives by Conserva- candidates and canvaafterfi Is in sonic such terms these: "Don't worry "sbout Reciprocity. It sure to carry. The vote of this constituency will not "decide the question anyway. The thing to do here Is lo all am ml together "and the Grit candidate.' It Is not only In Western Canada that appeal IB hoard. Oliver Wilcox. the Conservative candidate for North Essex. IIHB been making it from (lie plat- form. No doubt it is being used all over-the Dominion wherever it Is thought to effective. Now, there fs no doubt abo.ut reciprocity carrying the t.hal tlie electors who want reciprocity vote for It by marking their ballots foi the candidates pledged to tbe policy. The Issue is not so certain if electors who want reciprocity be cajoled into voting for anti-reciprocity by argumenlH such as we have In- dicated. Tlie fate of reciprocity Is tied up wiih that of the Laurier Govern- ment. If the Laurier Government is beaien it, is a case of lo nil hopes of better tracto-relations with tho United tates. This generation will have no opportunity of rejecting another such offer. It is quite apparent that the line-tin, against the Government is form Id able. It includes: Anti-reciprocity Liberals who the arrangement and are therefore fighting the Government. In the West these arc a negligible (iitaniity, but in I he East they (ire a factor in the fight. Certain special interests which foresee that, under tho conditions to be created under reciprocity, they will find It more difficult to -malic enormous profits. These include meat, packers, canners, millers and food handling figendes, which by cold-storage plants and other devices keep prices at abnor- mal levels. Other special interests which fear the possible secondary consequences of reciprocity. Among these arc many manufacturers w.ho are noi affected bj the agreement, but are afraid that its scope may be subsequently enlarged to their detriment. The official Conservative party Tlie anti-reciprocity movement In Quebec, led by Rourassa, which is being financed by anti-reciprocity funds in the hope thai it-will draw enough sin; port from Laurier to weaken his support in Quebec, and thus en-operate in tbe repeal of reciprocity. This combination ma lies its special appeal in rOntario and Quebec; else- where it lias no exceptional strength. How strong it is in those Provinces nothing b.ul the voting on September 21 will reveal. The Liberals in their fight for reciprocity are not without allies. They are getting support from and Labor men. If they stand together until election day they will win by 11 substantial margin. Tbe which term we mean the three prairie it within its power to put ilie issue of tbe election, beyond doubt. It is grossly I under-represented, with only twenty-seven members, it has enough to ensure the triumph of reciprocity. If reciprocity were submitted to the electors of the West the form of a referendum, it, would get substantial majorities in every constituency. In many there would be no adverse vote. If therefore, the electors of tho West were to disregard personal con- siderations and past political affiliations and cast their votes with ft single eye to tbe great issue, not a single Western anti-reciprocity candidate would survive the vote on September 21. Human nature being what it is, this is not to be expected; but there should be an approximation to this ideal. A large majority for reciprocity in the West is desirable on many grounds. The first and chief reason is that it may be needed to carry the reciprocity agreement, though parliament. The West has power to neutralize any possible anti-reciprocity majority in Ontario. If this ;is done, the defeat of reciprocity rendered impossible. Big majorities in the constituencies for big majority of tlie members from tlie West for recipracity-p-these are-easily obtainable if the .electors who want reciprocity to thelr'wlshes by their votes. If they are'obtained it will settle for all time' inn Her of wider markets and freer trade. This is a golden opportunity which, if foregone, .will not recur. Partv friendships must not stand in tbe way of securing this boon. It is now ot never ['or reciprocity. Let .us take The reciprocity candidate in the Medicine Hat -constituency is U Buchanan. Let. nothing interfere with your .voting for him if yon want reel procity. Take no chances. Vote for Buchanan.

A rthur IVachy was acquit tpd of th'1, rhariir of nnjrrftfi'ing Kmile l.esntteat- Mont real, In th- year 1910-11, when there was a good crop in Alberta, the farmers sold their wheat up to December 1 on the regular ex- port basil, wiii. the Winnipeg market as a standard. Early in December the word ca-nc to Can- ada that Mexico on account of failure had removed the duty on wheat. Immediately buyers in Calgary began buying wheat at a premium of from three to four cents over the Fort William prices. During the re- that season the deal- ers paid a premium of from three to seven And a quarter cents aver the regular Fort William prices. all of the spring wheat and a great deal of red winter wheat grown in Southern Alberta found a market by this route, and the grain growers made thousands of dollars on ac- count of this new market. They came into competition with the western wheat growers who had great advantage! in the way of transportation over our dealers, but they told their grain and got the money.
