Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, ScptciViber 20, If, THE LETHBRIDnE DAILY HERALD "Queen "Alone Stands the Test See Our Window for Electric Demonstration W. J. Nelson Co. Shoes for Every Use and All Occasions THE WHOLE AGREEMENT BETWEEN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES The reciprocity agreement consists of the following notes which passed ijot'weou the Canadian negotiators and the United States Secretary of State. They' speak for themselves, and tihniiM -h-5 read by 'every elector. It will be noted that the Canadians had the privilege, of drawing Ip the In: terijretation of the agreement, and that the .United States representa- tive -gave1 unqualified assent to that interpretation., These letters, to wlitch the sch'etlulcEi of duty reduc- tions-were attached, constitute the whole agreement: The. note to Mr. Knox: Dear Mr. Secretary: 1, The negotia- tions initiated by the President sev- eral months ago'through your com- munication to his Excellency the British'Ambassador resrAJcting a reci- procal tariff arrangement '.between five" United 'States and Canada, and since carried on directly between .pi'esentatives of the two countries, .hav's.uow, we are happy to say, reach- ed a stage which gives reasonable as- .sunince of a conclusion satisfactory to both countries. X We desire to act forth what we understand to (he arrangement arid ask you to confirm it, It is agreed that the desired .tar- iff not take the" formal sha'pe qf a treaty, 'but'that tbe" govern- 'irAmts of the two countries shall use i-hoir utmost efforts to bring about such changes by concurrent legisla- tion at Washington ami Ottawa. 4. The governments of th-a two countries having made this arrange- ment from the conviction that, if con- firmed by tlra necessary legislative authorities, It will benefit'the people of both sides of tho border line, we nifty reasonably hope and .exf.'act that the arrangement, if so will itemain in operation .for a consider- able period. Only this expectation .on the part' .of. both governments would justify the time and labor that have 'been employed In the matur- ing of the proposed measures. Nev- ertheless, it is distinctly understood that we do not attempt to bind for tho future ttoa action of tiie Unit-ed Htntos Congress or the Parliament of Canada, but that each of these -auth- orities shall he absolutely free (o make any change of tariff policy or of any other matter covered bv the present arrangement that may fce deemed expedient! We look for the continuance of the arrangement, not because either party is bound to It, but becjui-Je of our conviction that the more liberal trade -policy thus to be established will >bti viewed iby the people of the United States and Ca- nada as one which will strengthen the friendly illations now happily 'revailing and promote the commer- ial interests of both countries. '5. A-3 respects a considerable list of a-rtides produced in, both coun- tries, we have been abte to agree that they shall 'be reciprocally free. A list of the articles to -be admitte-j free of'duty into the United States from Canada, and into Canada from the United is set' forth in Schedule G. As respects another group of ar- ticles, we have been able to 'agree up- on common .rates, .of, to te ap- plied to'such.articles when-Imnorte into the United States from Canada or into Cana-da. from the Unite Slates. A list of these articles, wit the rat-as 'of duty, re -set forth i: Schedule B. T. in a few instances It has beei found that the adoption of. a commoi will be inconvenient; and tirere fore exemptions have to be made, S. Schedule C'.: specifies r article upon 'which tire United States, -wil levy the rates therein eet_fQrth such articles are imported front Ca nada into the United States. 9. Schedule D specifies articles upon which Canada will levy lh I'liitcnl Slates and Canadii, hi whlnli you set forth nnd ask-me to confirm your of the re- qt.pur recent conference in con tinuation of these 1 take pleasure in replying tha statement of .the proposed ai rang-snieht is'entirely in accord will my ;imder.3tanding of it. H'is a mattvjr of some regret ot part that we have been unable to adjust our differences on the sub- ject :of wood pulp, pulp wood, and print paper. We recognize the diffi- which you refer growing out of the nature of the relations be- twMsr.Uie Dominion and Provincial governments, and for this present we .mutt.his content with the conditional arrangement which has been propos- ed In1 Schedule A attached to your let- ter. I fully appreciate the importance to which you call attention, of not permitting a too rigid customs admin- istration to interfere with the suc- cessful operation of the agreement, if it is approved by the Congress of th-e United States and the Parliament of Canada, and I desire to confirm your statement of our understanding on "this point. I am satisfied that the spirit evinced on both sidea gives assurance that every effort will >be math: to secuie the full measure of is contemplated In ftn- into this arrangement. that you give that the Dominion government proposes to i require only a nominal' fee from fishing .vessels of the .United States for the privileges "in Canadian waters, for which, heretofore a charge of per ton'for each vessel has toen re- quired, ia most gratifying. I heartily 'concur In your statement of the purpbi-es inspiring: the nego- tiations .arid' In th-a views expressed by you as .to. the :mutua! benefits to be derived by both countries in tho event our work Is confirmed, and r take this opportunity to assure yon, on behalf of the president, of his appreciation of the cordial spirit in which' you have met us in these negotiations: I have the honor to be, gentlemen, .your obedient yervant, (Signed) P.
