The voice of the protocUoolEt is loud In the laud these days, and iu the vehemence with which it is pro- claimed and' Iu protestations it makes there is something o? a spirit of a for- loni hope in the endeavor to preserve JUo citadel of Irish 'protection from crumbling tinder tho attacks of its assailants. A regrettable feature iu tho campaign of the protectionists [5 Lhiit the old doYices, in spite of their t( having outlasted their usefulness, are! vioced that this can be (lone (to speak ample which the. civilized -world af- fords, that a couutry can refuse even a little of protection to its indutrles and still raise considerable revenue by means of its tnstomfi tariff. "My study of the whole question had led me to the conclusion that the protective features of our tariff can be altered so as to reduco materially the cost of clothing, boots and shoes and other necessaries ot life as well as agricultural ob- jects for which we aro a'l striving and without too attainment of which, no tariff readjustment will be of any use to our people. And I am further con- once more resorted to. Tho anneals to patriotism and loyalty aro oncei niorb brought out and patched up toj onco agala serve the uses to which; they were nut at the last time the is-; sao of the tariff was brought before tho peoulo of Canada in the lleci lirocily election ot 1911.

Apart from anything else, It Is not anything in tho way of an abstruse calculation for the average intelfi- gence to see that from a revenua-get- ting point of view the lower the im- port duty, the 'more will be the vol- ume of goods imported; whiio with a protective duty it must tend tho other way. In lite question of the tariff policy of the Dominion it is not only a mat- ter of imports but ot exports. To the fiscal.mind it must be apparent that to maintain an increasing volume of ex- ports is a sound and wholesome method of meeting tSe national in- Tbe tariff Issue just recently liasjdebteduess. Today it has been shown been much aa the platform. We have :beard the protectionist and vre hare heard the espouser ot-the cause ot low tariff. Amongst ths latter haa been Hon. W.P. A. Turgeou. Attorney- General of Saskatchewan. Speaking at Saskatoon ha sounded the right noto when lio declared that tito ncit election would Tss tSo fourth 'Canadian election over tariff as an Iseuo and called upon the people to quit wasting lime and effort in' futile .recriminations in order to avoid add- another glssutic failure to the failarea ot tbc past. In this Is con- veyed tie Impoilant advice that Iho electors of Canada should endeavor to themselves sound on the tariff without being deluded by .mere- tricious appeals to sentiment or being led away by Iho creating of specious argument. Tho true test to prove tho virtue of protection is open to its staunch sup-' that tile agricultural industry of Can- ada is responsible for maintaining year in and year out the vast bulk of the exports which are shown in the figures ot the trade and Commerce ot Canada. As it was urged by the farm- ers before tho tariff Inquiry commis- sion in Winnipeg, it is most essential that this record of Irado shaiild not only be maintained but 'Increased It possible.
