He did so, however, as an Independent, for while he might vote with the Conservative members for forty years, he might leave them in forty minutes. The tariff, he urged, was practically the same Lib- erals or Conservatives and therefore he could not see ground for discus- sion. He did not approve the immi- gration policy .of the government in spending a million dollars a year in this connection and paying agents a fixed sum per'capita for securing im- migrants, but preferred the American system of'extracting something from those who came into the country.
