After Sir Wilfrid Laurier had given
his answer to the delegation of farmers on Dec. 10, newspapermen iu Ottawa interviewed the leaders. Following are the answers returned by
several of them:—
W. J. TregilluB, Vice-President of
the United Farmers of Alberta^'Sir
Wilfrid Laurier does not seem to
have grasped the true nationalism of
this movement. He had plenty of
time to think over our demands, the j
effect of which he learned on his trip
West. I am keenly disappointed with
his reply."
K. J. Fream, Secretary of the
United Farmers of Alberta: "We are
keenly disappointed just now, and
have arranged to meet the Premier
again on several of the points."
J. Maharg, Moose Jaw, member of
the executive National Council of Agriculture: "It always seems strange
to me that when we get an interview
with the Government, time iB so
limited. I am not at nil satisfied.
It's peculiar that the Qovernment
can adjourn for the holidays, and yet
limit the time of hearing a deputation such bs ours coming bucIi a
lung distance. Put two and two to-:
gether, and it seems as if we were
not getting a deal."
Dr. Hill, Kenlis, Sask., executive
Saskatchewan Crain Growers' Association: "We were treated lightly hy
Sir Wilfrid. He does not suem to
realize the greatness of our movement."
.1. S. Wood, director of the Manitoba Grain Growers' Association:
"He should have given ub a more
definite understanding regarding the
terminal elevators. He acknowledged that we have a grievance,
and yet did not say that he would
give us a relief. Wheat pays its way
and he should have given us something to take bad' to the farmers of
the West un tlui. >i..-t-tlon."
U. McKenzie, secretary of thc Manitoba Grain Growers' Association;
"I am not at all satislied, but prefer
not to express my opinion as yet."
W. Chipman, editor of the Grain
Growers' Guide: "Not satisfactory
at all.
Job. Speakeman, executive United
Fanners of Alberta: "I would have
liked a more definite reply regarding
the chilled beef proposition. We
could not expect very much on the
tariff, as the negotiations with the
United States are still in progress."
IC. A. Partridge, Saskatchewan
Grain Growers' Association: "It's
an insult, and we should hold an indignation meeting."
T. W. Knowles, executive Manitoba
Grain Growers' Association: "I am
very much disappointed."
John Hyatt, Prince Edward Island
delegation: "Darned little porridge
in the salt. What I mean hy this is
that we got little satisfaction."
W. T. Murphy, Saskatchewan:
"Personally I am not satislied with
the response; it did not have the
right ring in it. lie wrapped a cold
blanket around the whole thing."
The foregoing were outspoken criticising. fi3. O. Drury, secretary of the
National Council of Agriculture; F.
W. Oreen, Secretary of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association;
P. W. Seallion, honorary life president, Manitoba Grain Growers' Association, nnd A. G. Hawkes, execu
tive Saska telle wan Grain Growers'
Association, took au Apologetic line
even more siicuillcaut.   They said:
13, 0, Drury : "No opinion to offer
at present. Am nwiiitiui; further developments, We OOllld not expect Sir
Wilfrid in the presence nf tils political adversaries to enunciate tlie tariff
F. W. Green : As really the chairman of a largo committee, Sir Wil
frld coiibl not lie expecti'd to give
definite answers to those things to
which he could only trivc a definite
answer after consulting his colleagues. Any man In his place, surrounded hy rivals, where every word
would he picked up and used utfiiinst
him, would naturally he careful of
bis statements. He could not make
promises which he mlghl not be able
to carry out because be depended on
the will nnd action of those bbbo
elated with him. The effectiveness ol
our meeting with him will likely he
brought, nbont by tlie cohesion and
force represented in the movements
lu the opinion of those who have ttie
power to give effect to the ex pi in
sions of the representations."
' P. W. Seallion : "We could not ex
poet much. Sir Wilfrid, when nil in
said and done, is only one member of
the Government nnd not the whole
In short, the delegation was bitter
ly disappointed.
In   an interview   given   by Mr. T.
M. Roberts, the   City Clerk and Assessor,   Mr.    Roberts,   in reply to a
ijuestion   as to   thc meaning and ef- itsi)'/)
feet   of the   increased assessment of | yjf{
the city,    made the following explanation,   which   should   convince   tlie
citizens of   Cranbrook   of   the stability   and progresBiveness of the city
and of the authorities who have had
the   supervision of     the   city affairs
since  Cranbrook    became a    Municipality; and should be a cause of congratulation  and     encouragement
the citizens lu general.
"The assessment," said Mr. Roberts, "of the yegr 1910, waB $387,795
on lands and $839,880 on improvements.     "The taxable value of lands
: k
is the actual saleable value of such W
lands." The taxable value uf such
is legally culled improvements, iu
other words, the buildings, is 50 per
cent of their saleable value. "The
total taxable value of the City for
the year 1910, therefore, was $806,-
705.OU. The assessment for 1911 iB
$72H,495.00 on lands and $'J48,hBu.uu
on improvements, making a total
assessable value of $1,(177,175.00 and
a total taxable value of $1,202,835 00
"The rate of taxation last year
was, on lands, thirty-five mill
improvements nineteen mills. lu '
making up the assessments for 1910, |
especially of the business portion of
the City, 1 had no recent sale of any
moment to indicate to rue the value
of lands. In 1910, however, there
were numerous sales ol business
property on Baker Street, and a
large number of residences were
built during the winter of 1909
anh the year 1910, and in
considering a proper valuation to he
made upon the real property of
(jranbrook, I was enabled to arrive
at a more proper valuation than I
had previously, I considered that
the valuation hitherto, especially in
cases of business properties, was altogether too low and in the case of
residential properties, while not as |
iuw as the husiness district, the valuation was still considerably lower
than directed by the Municipal
Clauses Act; aud I believe that tne
present valuation, with very few
exceptions, wi,l stand before the
Court of Revision, or any Court,
should the decision of the Court of
Revision be appealed against.
"A great misapprehension seems
to exist in the minds of some citizens as to the amount of taxes that
they will be called upon to pay
next year. They fear that they will
be called upon to \i y more thnn
last year because of the increased
assessment. This Is a mistake. The
average rate on lands and improvements in 1910, was twenty-seven
mills. Should the same expenditures be made in 1911 as in 1910,
then, on,the increased assessment,
the rate would average about eighteen mills, probably a little bit lower. The rate, however, will probably be lower than eighteen mills and
in my opinion nearer to fifteen or
sixteen, firstly—because the revenues
of the City should increase in the
ordinary course, in fact I may say,
they have shown a steady Increase
from year to year; and secondly—
the expenditures should he less. One
of the largest causes of expenditures
last year and the year before Was
due to the extension and re-laying
of the water works system. I understand from the City Engineer
that this work is now practically
completed, especially the work Within the Municipal limits and next
year there will be no outlay of any
moment under this heading. This
should cause a decrease in the expenditures of ahout $3,000.00. On
the whole, therefore, I believe that
next year through the increase of
assessment, the increase in revenue |
and thc probable decrease in expen-
ilitiui', the average rute of taxation i
on lands and improvements will bo
reduced from an average rate of j
twenty-seven mills to between fiftecD
nd seventeen mills." I
Ttie foregoing statement by Mr.
Roberts shows a remarkably healthy
growth in the City of Cranhrook and ,
shows also that, with a progressive
spirit on the part of the different
Councils and officials of the City |
who have had charge of civic affairs
BlnCQ the inception of the Municipality, there has been a combined and
proper appreciation of the financial
position of the city, and an economical method of expenditure which
we nre safe in saying will not. be

Is thc pioneer paper of Southeaat
The Liberals seem suddenly to
have made up their minds to abandon reciprocity. When the debate
on tbe address opened Sir Wilfrid
Laurier declared tbat the question ot
reciprocity was engrossing public attention. Exactly a week later Mr.
Paterson spoke in the same debate.
Now, the Canadian members of the
reciprocity conference of November
were Mr. Fielding and Mr. Paterson.
Mr. Fielding is away ill, and Mr.
Paterson is the only man iu the
House who sat in tbe conference.
He uaturally is the person best
qualified to speak on the subject
which is "engrossing public attention." Now Mr. Paterson did not
open his mouth an the subject. He
did not even utter the word "reciprocity."
What does this sudden silence
It means this. The Liberals, after coming to parliament and comparing notes have made up tbeir
minds that they have lost Quebec,
and have resolved to appeal to English-speaking Canada as tho truly
loyal party which is being persecuted
in Quebec for its loyalty.
And just at the moment that it
became convenient to wave the old
Flag they were tied up with reciprocity; they had been squinting towards  Washington,
So they have dropped reciprocity
like a hot potato.
