E. Smith, -one of the prritagonists of the Tariff party ia Great Britain, ihat his recent ID Caradi was conwiyed solely [or his own political purposes. :In fact It looks uncomnionly as if he .had mndc up his mind io note cer- tain condiiioDs fayorable io his par- ticular political hobby, and hail con- vinced himself ihat they were pres- "..ent here without troubling himself to .-ascertain whether they ivere.facts or He came and he ex- actly what he bad made up his mind c to see, aad, believe? that is considered first-hand evidence will count "with much in his appeal to .-the eleciors. The supporiers ol Tariff Reform in ..the Old Country must he very hard .put iu the way of finding argumeat i.hey have to resort to such devices as Mr. Smith is use of. Llkej British sentiment ia Mr. Smith's another transieuc visitor, the the fauhinesE of which is evl- II. P. simply skimmed the dent 'Troen. Ii is recognized that the base purpose destroying the case.' for tariff reform between the and Canada, it simply shoiys io what heights of imagination i politician can when .he allows himself to he obessed by one para- mount Iden Why the merest tyro can tell him ihat the essence of the demand for reciprocity is the ueed lor wider markets, in that the British market is not all sufficient for future and nas no bearing" on the rnaL- ter of Imperial preference since even .should it come about it would not :iuea.n the enlargement of the over- seas market for Canadian produce. IE Imperial preference" was going io solve the question of larger markets there is. not a doubt that it would .meet with general approbation. Buc surely no sane person can imagine this. __ __ There is an insinuation of lack ot ot things. He. no doubt, saw a njr and progressive country, and considering the real factors in the case, ii as the out- come ol his own prescription for all economic ills. same party which .engineered recipro- city is the pany which raised tbe British preference. Hitherto it has been a want of loyalty was behind the reciprocity movement but it has" been left to tee one and 31r. Smith talks such Smltb, In.the reasons be gives, sense that the supporters of rccipro-i to add another bee to the political city with ihe United States devised bonnet of those who are opposed to it BO oilier object than for the' the policy. The Presidential Issue OUR POINT OF VIEW things are ed in tbe United Suites paints out that there are only two Teal canSidaLeE in ihe Presidential running, namely: Wocdrow "Wilson and James S. Sberman. This is the ouicome of the theory of George Har- vey, editor of the North American Re- view, claimed to be a recognized au- thority on American politics. Mr. Harvey bases his finding on ihe pro- bable failure ol any of the candidates to win the requisite majority In the electoral college. This he surmises "would lead ro the possible exercise of the Presidential powers, during ihe nest four yeare, by Vice-president James 3. Sherman. If the Roosevelt party were to get tbe electoral vote of certain scales it woulrl prevent Wilson or Taft getting the 26G votes necessary for an elec- toral majority. Tbe choice ivould then devolve on tbe House of Repre- sentatives, which, though Democratic BO fer as die plurality of individual members, would have, however, to .vote by states. The House being tied by States, 22 of its state delegations containing mere Republicans than Democrats, 22 more Democrats than Republicans, and 4 being evenly di- vided, It might be unable to make a choice. The Vice-President, if no majority is obtained in the electoral college, is referred io the Senate which chooses by majoruy vote of the individual senators, between the iwo highest numbers on the list. Siiiyc the senate has a Republican majority of U it would presumably elect a. Re- publican Vice-President, and, if the House shall nave made no choice for "llio President by the 4tli of March then, according to the Conaiiiutiou, "the Yice-Presldent shall act as Pve- sfclcnl., as in the caae of the -death or oilier -constitutional disability of the President." In stating Mr. Harvey's deductions, Saturday Night reminds us thai the History of the United States furnisne3 yarallels of the present comlt- lign. One 1300, when tlin Demo- c'riitic "party broke In twain, two can- diflates, rioiiRlsia and Breckeurltige be- ing nominated, and ihe Heimblican nominee, Abraluiiu Lincoln, elected. The other in 1S1M, when John Quliitfiy Adivms and Henry Clay entered the con teat In opposition to William Crawford, ihe regular llopublicuii candidate. Andrew .Tacksou, as the Democratic candidate, likewise enter- ed the contest against tne field, and obtained :a plurality, but uot a major- ity of both elecioral and popular votes: whereupon the ejection of a President devolved upon the HOUSQ of Representatives, Jin Adams was cnosen. Regarding this the journal makes the fo [lowing reflections: Certain phases of the parallel are obvious, (I) The sole ascrib- ed cause of the disruption of the Republican parly IK popular re- volt against the convention sys- tem as practised, in full conform- ity with precedent, In Chicago.. (2) Party labels, which signified little or nothing in ISM, are less clearly defined now than. a.t any time during the past half century. Mr. Taft solicits the support of Democrats, as well as' Republi- cans, with peculiar earnestness; .AVllson emphasizes his ap- peal to the whole people by ignor- ing to a marked degree his party platform and party machinery and Mr. Roosevelt offers all forms of bait to all hinds of rag-iag-and- bobtall. Their true appellations are clearly: Conservative: Wilson, Liberal; Roosevelt, Radi- cal. (3) The contest bag already narrowed, as in IS'24, to the De- mocrat ugaUiai the field. Now, as then, he is jrractically assured a plurality of votes In tbe electoral college; and now, as then, His de- fnat can be accomplished only by withholding from him nn actual majority over all, Uius nRain Im- posing the election or a President upon the House of Representa- tives. In T.he uncertainty prevailing as to the outcome of the Presidential stakes it loofca like a )'eal sporting event. .Mr. Harvey anticipates the result ;IB fcl- Itfwa: "Wilson will -probably be elected.

In chls way a. continual warfare has been waged for y-eara, and Inasmuch as most western towns depend entirely an ihe rural trade, this friction be- tween farmer and merchant has bad a depressing effect on the towns gen- erAlly.
