A Wider Market .The object of reciprocity to secure for the Canadian producers' ,d wider market. Right at our doors is a market of people, but thp producer is kent of it by the high tariff levied by cho I' States Bov-arnmcnt on all goods on- .tering the country. Even if pric- PS of. produce in the States were no hirher tlinn thev are in Canada, it lin of advantage to the ri.nbt to trade in such a market, not, cjily prict'o would be high- er, but when it is to find Buyers for surplus grain, livo stock, dairy prod UPS, fish.

It is nrgued in oppoailion that the Unil-ad States Is an agricultural rotin- and will cuter into competition with the Canadian right in ('annda. Such is not the case, how- today, whatever It. may haw In days wlreu Sir John A. MiMlonaid and Hon. Oeorge K.

Each year-.i'ees an increasing Amount of produce that iiiu-jc be fold, but rhe available mar- kets are not sufficient to it at bargain prices. Reciproc- ity will open the great market of States to the Canadian cannot raise it successfully. The pre- sent duty of 30 cents a bushel Keeps Canadian barley out, and as. a res nil very Hrtle rs But harE-ey was grown very extensively In Ontario be- fore the prohibitive duly was put on It. Today the best malting barley is quoted in Toronto at SO rants, "while u Buffalo the quotation is 51.15 a buslval, and the farmers holding, what they have until reciprocity comes into effect that they msy the whote 35 cents advantage.

The fish- ermen of Canada and live lumbermen, by the removal of the American duty, will access to the very profitable markets across the line.

D. farmer. It is sufficient to take his surplus, Ai: there is an demand. Canada's present markets are not sufficient. Another is need- ad, and reciprocity provides it. The Wheat Market Take wheat, for instance. While uot many years ago, the United States was exporting as-much as bushels annually, tire amount has been steadily decreasing, until last year only bushels were ex- ported. Thfe year their crop is es- timated to be bnakils MsC than last year. >That means that this year, they must import nearly 000.000 bushels, or cnrtail their con- sumption." Canada, on the other hand, has bad an increasing amount for export each year, Jn the -West this year tliere will be a yield of about 200.- HOO.OOO hiwtisls, and the largest i-ious yield was bushels. Allowing that the home market will bushels of this yiekl, addition to what is produced in :lie other parts of Canada, and this is very liberal allowance, where will he Western farmers sell their other i biwhels? British grain intl irilling authorities that. Bri- ain tliia or any other year will not j over bushels. This leaves bushels without a market under conditions, for the markets in the Orient and other countries ia v-ery limited, and grow- ing wry slowly. The obvious mar- ket for Canada's surplus is the Un- ited States' deficiency. Even if the pricey paifi in the United States were no higher than in Canada, It will he a gveatV advantage to the Canadian farmer to a maricat where he can dispose of his surplus. Better Pricei in the States But the higher prices paid In the States make that market all tlveniore desirable. Figures to prove this have bnen given to fore and a very few win suffice. For the past six ilio average price of No. J N'orLhcrn wheat iu Winnipeg has been 'US tsntg, in Minneapolis It wan Jl.Oi, a difference of cents per i Hut Ihe opening of the American' wheat market hug additional ad Balccvski. H. Fares, .1. F. Brad- shaw, Ray Knight, George Lane, and many others who might h-a named, would not support reciprocity, some of them forsaking their -party alleg- iance to do so, if th-ay did not know tli-e advantages accruing, C. A. Ma- grarii, D.LIS., and R. B. Bennett, K. C., to the contrary. The removal of the duty ot 27 per cent, on cattle valued at over a iraad, and of p'ar head on animals, will give the ranchers a great advantage. They have better j cattle, can raise them fatter, and Ireav- and thereby obtain not only, the Chicago average price of per cwt., but the average prica of, for prime fats, while the average price for the past. six years for (he- best steers bought in -Winnipeg has been per cwt. For the week ending Sept. "16, this is done by subjecting the food trusts and transportation companies who have been making exorbitant profits under present existing tions. This is more fully ex'jttdfned in another article thw issue' of thie Herald.
