Finance Minister Price Ellison io
his budget speech today touched on
the proposed reciprocity treaty with
the United States, "It seems almost too bad, trom our point of
view, that at such a time of prosperity there should be a (eellng of uncertainty and apprehension engendered among (armera by proposed
changes ln tarlll relations with tho
United States," said Mr. Ellison.
"These changes do not aeem in any
respect to promise benefit, and may
work much harm and hardship."

Kipling says: "I am more worried
than I like to be about, this Canadian-United States reciprocity game.
It seems like a whole battalion oi
cullered persona were in the woodpile."
"No Surrender, i_ the word."
Kven Sir Wilfrid Laurier. with all
h.H backing and all the influence of
the United States cannot force reciprocity on the people of Canada.
Let ns fight it out, and wm.
Thi' Kdmontoii Bulletin nays. "The
Opposition seem to not know just
what to do about the reciprocity arrangements. " Sir Wilfrid and hie
colleagiit-H will know considerable
more about how the peuple of Canada view the project, before the Bill
passes the House.
On Friday of last week a lire drill
took place at the public school. The
alarm was sounded without the
knowledge of teachers nr pupils. The
scholars filed from their respective
rooms ipiietly anil rapidly.
British Columbia has been luccesa-
ful in Increasing its wealth and its
resources. Finance Minister KUison
makes the prophecy that the revenue
of the province in the ensuing year
will he 14 per cent greater than the
revenue of last year.
In the Ottawa House the Opposition have a great task before them
to bring order out of chaos and
place the reciprocity question iquar-
ly and fairly before the people.
Once again the strategy of the IJ,

more than a match for Liberal plain

Laurier government seems to be im- j

In 1905 the Laurier government
opposed %2 protection duty on lumber. The line of argument which
they followed at that time, and
which they are following in the interest of the reciprocity agreement,
betrays a total ignorance of the
actual condition of affairs In tha
lumber industry of the west.
