The Liberal presa in tho Dominion

results which it claims would have
followed the carrying out nl n reciprocity arrangement with tho United
Stntes,'Hir Wilfrid Laurier hns oonr.
forward with tho snme old cry, only
this time it is disguised liy tho appellation of free food. In renunounc-
Ing his old policy In its new garb,
the lender of the Opposition is quo
ted as having said:
"The policy I give ymi nt this moment, thc policy 1 believe every patriot in Camilla tmt.lit to .support,
and the policy 1 believe it to ho the
duty of the Government to immediately inaugurato is a policy of absolutely free fond—free from customs
It. is unnecessary to comment on
the speciosity of tho attempt to
mnke a play upon thc words "Free
Food," for such n cry is purely 0-
topian. Still it will ho interesting
to examine just exactly what thc removal of the duties "I foodstuffs
brought into this country would
mean to the purchasing power ol thc
people. The following table in whlob
the ligures nre approximate, bnt substantially correct, shows the food
commodities imported into Canada
during tbe iiscnl year 1912-13, together with thc amount ut dutlcB
collected on them:
Commodity Collected
Sugar,   molasses,  syrups...J 4,1130,000
Fruits      1,820,000
Meats       1,040,000
Vegetables       900,000
Butter and Cheese        .iOO.OOO
Grain and grain products..,     500,000
Eggs       1°M00
FiBl]          360,000
Brcadstufls   (such   as  rice)      260,000
Miscellaneous    i       690,001)
Total  Ul.000.0l_*
A large proportion ol the above
imports cannot lie regarded r_ ne
cesBarics of life, and in nny argument advanced in lavor ot a reduction in the cost of living, we nssumc
thut it is only fair to ileal with sucli
commodities as arc essential to the
lile ol the aation. For instance, a
considerable quantity ol the Iruit im
purted to Canada muet be placed in
the category ol a luxury. We will
not enter into this phnsc of the
question at the present time, our
sole object being to show the Inllacy
of thc cry that the abolition of the
duties on foodstulis would reduce thc
cost ol living to nny appreciable extent, lf we assume that the population ol thc Dominion is epproxl
mutely 8,800,000, It is easy to arrive
at the conclusion tbat the abolition
of tho duties on foodstuffs would
mean a reduction in the cost ol living ol 11.25 per head of the population per annum. Wc leave the im-
nginatloa ol our readers to figure
out how helpful this would he. As
it is we lancy there Is nut n person
in the countsy who could not effect
this saving by denying himself or
herself some little luxury. So much
lm the argument In Invor ol the cry
for "Free Food."
Now we wlll I um lo another len-
turo ol the general tendency shown
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier In the direction ol (ree trade, In nn endeavor to
allow from nu economic, mul not a
political, standpoint, bow much reason there Is to suppose thnl whnt he
advocates would lend to additional
prosperity iu Canada. During the
year 1912, manufacturing linns (rum
the United StateB to thc number ol
88 established themselves In the Dominion along thc linen ol the Canadian Pnclllc Railway. The number
of men tbat these firms have given
employment to in the country is
10,875. Tho capitnl they have invested here amounts to J18.000.000.
These firms would not linvc come to
Cunada had lt not been lor the tariff
which exists on the introductlun ,oI
their goods, llml reciprocity carried,
these mnnuluctiirers would not have
come to the Dominion, tnr It would
huve been easier lor tho producers nl
the commodities involved to send
thom bore Irom thn other side, as
with the reduction or nhnlitlnn nt
the duty they could hnve enmpeted
on equal terms with the Canadian
producer. At. the time lhe reciprocity bargain wns under dlgcuiiloni
there wero repented instnnees ol
branch   fnctorleii   In    this   country,
owned by pobplo on the Americun
side, which it was announced would
be closed down in the event ol the
poet lining approved by thc people.
Hut because reciprocity was deteated
and because Canndn continues to impose a tariff on goods coming from
the American side, In very mnny instnnees United States producers lind
thnt it is greatly to their advantage
to mnke the products tliay sell to
Canadians on the Canadian side, employing Cnnaiiian workman.
One ol the most potent factors in
the growth of n young country is the
building up of the manufacturing Indus! l*y. Thnt is why we have welcomed the advent ol Yarrows Limited to this province. The policy of

London, Jan. 21st.—Lord Strath
conn and Mount Royal, high com
missioner of Canada, died peacefully
in bis sleep at 1,55 this morning. He
had been practically unconscious since
4.HO o'clock yesterday afternoon. His
death was due to prostration, tbe
result of a severe attack of catarrh
He had been ailing, however, ever
since the death of his wife on November 12th Inst, which proved* n
great shock to nini.
Lord Strathcona's life sponned
nearly a century nnd his active career a full three-quarters. "The best
way to live to nn old age," he explained when found at work at bis
desk in London on bis ninety-third
birthday on August f.th last, "is by
not thluking about nge at all, but
just going on doing your work.
From his eighteenth yenr, when as
Donald Smith, a sturdy Scot, bc
sailed far Canado, to his ninety-four
th year, which would have boen completed next August, be lived up to
bis maxim of work. For the la.t
six yeors, lie bad been periodically
reported as "about to resign" the
post of high commissioner for Canada, but it was death and not resignation which terminated his work.
His lii'aSt yeara in Canada were
those of an adventurous youth in
what was a real wilderness. The
Hudson Buy company, which controlled practically all of British
North America, engaged him as cler;.
and by successive stages he grew to
be head of the corporation and he
was its last resident governor. Dur-
this service which was mainly in
Labrador, ho was. threatened with
snow blindness and hnd to make a
forced march of 500 miles through
the snow to Montreal for nn opera
tion on bis eyes, which is one of tin-
many Instances of hie poreovoranco.
After 30 years In tbe eastern wilds
bc took what he called a slight rest
as resident governor in Montreal,
and then accepted the offer of load
ing Lord Wolseley's expedition to tin-
north-west. Lord Wolcsley said of
him that his tact nnd confidence s
won tbe Indians of tbnt whole rogi n
that his word was law among them.
Later bc bent, his energies toward
opening up the west and be is credi
ted with having pressed the Canadian
Pacific rnilwny to completion across
the continent. He also had political
experience as a member of the Manitoba legislature and the Dominion
parliament for many years.
From the vast fortune he accumulated Lord Strathcona often dispells, d large sums for educational
and charitable purpose:* and be also
was a patron of many branches of
Lord Strathconajs title now goes to
his daughter, Margaret Charlotte,
who is the wife of R, .!. DllBB Howard.
Lord Strathcona had only one senior ln the houso of lords the enrl
of Wernyss,  who  is in his .'•th  year.
London, Jan. 22.- The funeral |
Lord Strathcona wil! take placo on
Monday at Highgnto cemotery, whore
lie   will    he   laid    (•>   rost   beside   the
body of his wife, who dlod November
12th. This course will bo taken nt

it fow hours boforo be Inspod
Into unconsciousness, Tho govern
ment was prepared  to offer a placo
for Lho groat fi n mi in Hi. 1 n il's
cathedral, or even In Westminster
-bhoy, hut when the suggestion wns
made known to the Union CHS Mount
Royal nnd Strathconn sho stated it
wns her to the*'a wish lhal ho should
bo imd beside his wife with n little
ob ten tat Ion iih possible.
It is certain', however,  tbat a
tlonal  memorial  to  the    dead   high
commissioner  will  be  placed   in   St
Paul's  cathedral   or  In  tbe  historic
ball of Westminster Abbey.
l'ublic men continue to testify of
their sincere regret nt tbe death of
Lord Strathcona.
Right Hon. David Lloyd George,
spending to the Daily Mali, said:
"One can only regret the removal ol
such a figure. Tbe empire has lost
one of its greatest citizens,"
Donald MeMostcr, M.P., paid a
tribute to tho indomitable spitit, the
supreme optimism and the quenchless
faith of the man who had done most
to make Canada  what it is today.
Among the various stories regarding Lord Strathcona published in the
newspapers is ono relating lo a difficulty he had witli th. garter klng-
at arms when be was ennobled. Ho
presented his dcBlgn for his coai ol
arms, but thc official objected that
it was not correct, pointing out that
Lord Ilkeston was not allowed to
have a stethoscope on his coat of
arms. The garter king-nt-arms de
murred at Lord Strathcona's design
for a crest because it contained a
representation of a railway tie, but
he was eventually compelled to accept the prosaje emblem of Canada's
first transcontinental  railway.

Ju theBe days of high cost of food
and especially of meat, when the
packers are despairing of the meat
supply and the price of ilosh food is
proceeding steadily upward, farmers
would do well to pay heed to a section of Samuel W. Allerton's hook
on "Practical Farming," entitled,
"The Hog the Mortgage  Payer."
Mr. Allerton says that this is what
the hog is known as on Illinois farms
and he behaves thHt it is an eminently cortect designation. He gives
much uractical advice regarding the
successful raising of hogs and points
out that the only serious obstacle
to success is hog cholera.
But this may be avoided hy proper feeding of the animal, his idea
being that cholera Is produced hy
feeding of corn. He therefore advises
ground barley as a change of food,
and also suggests, in order to prevent tjhe spread of the disease in
case any animal upon the farm
should become infected with it, that
hog coops be constructed and scattered over the farm so that infection may be confined to as few of
the animals as possible and the lost-
Mr. Allerton shows thnt by proper
care hog raising is not expensive,and
it ie unnecessary to point out that
in these times of high prices it bring
large returns. He shows, in addition
that besides the direct value of hog
breeding in the profit of the animals
themselves, hogs greatly enrich the
land upon which they run, and thus
their presence on the farm makes for
tho betterment of all crops by supplying natural fertilizer.
Farmers should know all theso
things not only for their own benefit but for the sake of the entire con
suming public of the nation. If it
were realized how profitable hog cultivation really is, there would be
many more hogs raised and the meat
problem would be by no means so
acute. i
The lowest level of forest fire loss
on record in Canada was reached
this year on Dominion Forest Reserves in Western Canada. From
the first of April to the end of September several of these reserves escaped without a single fire over ten
acres in extent, the small tires that
did occur being extinguished by ihe
rangers before occasioning any damage to standing timber. On tne
Rocky Mountains Forest Reserve,
which has an area of 13,373,856 acres
ihe fire loss amounted to but 1,150
acres of young timber of only potential value and $IG0 worth of mature
timber. The total area burnt over,
more than half of which was cut
over or gras? Innd, wns hut 3,010 a-
creas, representing only 8.02 per cent
of the area of this reserve. On the
Dominion Forest reserves in British
Columbia, which have a total area
of 2,420,4.0 acres not a single fire
succeeded in spreading over a larger
area thnn ten acres, and the only
green timber injured by fire was four
aires of young lodgcpole pine. The
records are not yet complete for tbe
Saskatchewan and Manitoba sections
but the available figures compare
favorably with the ones cited. The
above figures also compare favorably
with corresponding ones on the National Forests of the United States,
where the area burned in 1913, although the smallest In recent years,
vas somewhat over 0.03 per cent of
the total reserved area.
In the Fire Districts on Dominion

by Dominion fire rangers the loss oc-
cassioncd by forest fires last seaBon
is also remarkably small, nor ls this

rain which fell last summer in tbe

Bankers vs. Thistles
The final game of the local basketball league, waB played on Monday
.last, In tho presence of a large and
i-nth. mastic number of spectator*,
and supporters of each aide and resulted In a win for the hankers of 2_
points to 23 iftcr an eipreniely stroii
uous match.
At the lino up thc men faced each
other as follows:
Bankers:Mew,™. Murray, Mackersy,
McFluraine.  A ah worth,  Shatford.
Thistle*.: Messrs Brechin, Kuhnhert
Gill, Bridges, Dallas.
Referree:  W. Hopkins
Umpire: A. My ram..
Timekeeper: A. T. Underbill
The Hankers got away in brilliant
style at the commencement and
scored within the first few minutes.
This, however, livened the Thistle:!
up considerably, who scored vi ry
shortly afterwards. Tho play was of
a very even chnraeter for some time
but prior to the interval the Thistles
forced a great pace, nnd when the
whistle blew for half time the score

Thistles 17
Judging by the play of the Thistles
in the latter part of the first half
it looked as though the Banker.*
would experience treat difficulty in,
penetrating their defence; but on re
suming the Bankers played with
great determination and dash, Ashworth and Bhfttford eipializing mat-
I ters within the first five minutes ami
s-.hatford's last goal was an excellent
one, emanating from a magnificent
oblique shot. The combination o[
the Thistles forwards was splendid,
but their shots tacked direction and
In consequence only added 6 points
to the score during the second half.

The game wns the most Interesting
one of tho season, the spectators
cheering the players efforts voclfer
i.iiHly and at. times tin- tlOlBfl was nl
most deafening owing t<> thfl tooting
of horns. The Thistles team were In
ex coll ont form, (.ill, Bridges, and
Dallas, playing oxcollcnt combination
whilst. Breohln and Kuhnhert proved
a most stubborn defence. The lturi
ken. defence was considerably wen
keiied owing to the absence of Mr
Kwen nud Mackersy, at times was
considerably troubled in COnflOquonce,
but Murray, who has graduated ffOM
the Y.M.C, played with grent vigor,
very consistently throughout.
Tho Bankers being the winners of
the league were presented by Mr.
Cameron,on behalf of Mr. W. H. Wil
Bon, with the "Wilson Cup." In presenting the cup to Mr, Ashworth,the
captain of the Bankers, he mnde a
very fitting speech to which Mr. Ashworth suitably responded.
Mr. Hopkins, wbb performed the
duties of referree during thc season,
waa presented with a handsome pipe
which hu thoroughly deserves.
It was very gratifying to see such
a lar^o attendance at the final game
and it is to bc hoped thai next season's games will be witnessed by a
J larger number of spectators.
Prior to the match Mr. Myrnms,
physical instructor of the Y. M. 0..
gave a gymnastic display which wub
highly appreciated  by all present.
