Trail Liberals in Line
KING    AND     MACDONALD  HOLD
VOTE WINNING RALLY.
A rousing meeting was addressed at
Trail last Wednesday by Dr. .1. II.
King, the Liberal candidate for
Kootenay, ami M, A. Macdonald, tf
t'ranbrook. Tbe targe ball and
gallery of the Miners' union was
crowded, over four hundred beir.g
in attendance. Dr, King spoke for
an hour, most ciTcctivdy, confining
himself to the reciprocity agreement, and thr frequent applause of
practically tbe whole audience
showed the temper of the meeting.
Mr. Macdonald followed for over an
hour ami held the closest attention
of tlie audience, his vigorous attacks ou the arguments advanced by
Mi. Goodeve being received with fre.
i;uent cheers. Without in any way
resorting to personalities he showed
that Mr. Goodeve reached tin* point
where he wanted to discuss everything else except reciprocity. Mr.
Goodeve tries to make capital of tbc
Oriental question, a matter which
has been settled to tlie satisfaction
of all representatives of labor in this
Iirovit.ee. It is proper to point out
that Dr. King, as president of a
large lumber concern in this province, never permitted, in the post
ton years since becoming president,
the employment ol a single Oriental
in their company. Dr. King practices whal be preaches, saitl Mr
Mai-ilonald, ami tbc cheers BboWed
that Mr. Goodeve hail belter leave

Canada is Building the
Greatest Bridge in the
World Over St. Lawrence
Thr Canadian government is creeling over the. St. Lawrence river, six
miles above Quobec, what promises
to in* the greatest bridge In the
world. It is intended im the trains
of the Grand Trunk railway, the cars
of the trolley lines that run up ami
down both banks of the river, tbc
general Vehicular Unfile and whatever else it may concern, it is Intended to replace a bridge which fell
in 1007, while iu process of erection
by the Phoenix Bridge company of
Pennsylvania. It was a terrible
disaster, ami cost the lives of more
than eighty men—the exact number
being unknown—ol whom thirty-six
were Indians of the CflUghrtftwaga
triihe employed as workmen. The
financial loss, which fell chiefly upon
the government, amounted lo about
$3,500)000.
The supers! met ure bad been completed by the contractor, M. P.
Davis, of Ottawa, and the steel
work was being done by the Phoenix
Bridge company, onder the direction
of Theodore Cooper, consulting engineer, ami .lohn Sterlii.g Deans, the
regular engineer of the company, upon plans prepared by P. L. /.yclop-
ka, the regular designing engineer of
tbe company. One arm of th:*
great cantilever, which had been
built out nearly half way, fell of iis
cwn weight, carrying down the
workmcr. employed upon It.
A few days before the catastrophe
Mr. Cooper sunt a telegram to the
superintendent in charge, saying:
"Do not place any more load on
Quebec bridge al present. Belter
look into it at once." Owing tn a
strike among telegraph operators
ibc message was delayed ami did not
arrive iu lime. The superintendent
ami his assistants were discussing tt
when   tlie bridge fell.      The message
was sen) upon the receipt nf Information ol suspicious appearances in the
construction,.but there was no positive evidence of weakness in either
the material or lhe design. The
coroner's jury reported:
CAUSE NOT   .DETERMINED
"We have been unable to determine
tlie real cause of tlie collapse, but
we feel it our duty to dec'are that.
according to the evidence furnished
diiriiii; the inquest, all necessary precautions were taken tor tin* construe,
iii n of tbe bridge without    danger "
V technical commission, appointed
by the government, made a thorough
Investigation ami report, which ills
a large printed Volume, but the contusions were equally Indefinite and
unsatisfactory. Tin experts decW .1
that the principle of construction
was e.ii net and bad been applied successfully to nibci bridges; but this
bridge was too big for the principle, and. therefore, the design was
an error of jihlgmrni There was
nothing wrong all nit the material
No human foresight could have prevented tbe catastrophe
The construction company hud l*vn
paid for nearly nl the wolk tbal bail
bets done up io the time of the accident, and lost comparatively little.
Tin*  government   settled  with   the
families of the men who hail been
kilhsl ami let tbe contract of removing Ibe wreckage to nn American
company.
The project    could lii t Ih* given up.
The bridge is an absolute necessity
At present the passengers gol&g from
Montreal to Quebei by the Grand
Trunk railroad, cross the St. Law-
rct.ee lo Ibe Victoria -luhilcc bridge
near Montreal, and continue along
tin* south side of the liver to Levis,
where they GrOtt over to QntbCO ll*. I

During the winter this method is

IS A MIGHTY RIVER.
The St. Lawrence is a mighty river, and ocean steamers go up as far
as Mont leal, which is about twelve
hours sail from (JucIk'c. Tbe distance from Qtt-chec to the ocean is
738 miles. Tbc distance Irom <Jue-
bec to Montreal Is I in miles. The
Quebec I ridge will be 132 miles from
Montreal.
At tlie present time there are only
three    bridges over   Hie   St.   Lnw-'
rente, all of them being in the vieln- '
Ity ot   Montreal.    The Orsl is    thr j
vicloria Jultllofl  bridge,    built      ot
steel trusses resting upon |ileis, and
nt   lhe time of iis complelbn it was
(Hie ol   the    wonders ot   lhe world.
It belongs lo the   (iiaml Trunk railroad.       1 he   same company       has
another   UMgr    at   Outran,  about
thirty-live miles farther up the river,
and between the two, almost joining
the ciiy of Montreal, is ihe bridge
of the Canadian Pacific railroad,
which carries the trains or the New
York Contra) system between Mon
tieal and New York. Tttf bridge is
now lieing enlarged to twice its origin,), si/e, so us to allow a double
Hack railway.
The new Quebec bridge is pari of
the grand enterprise now being carried on by the Dominion governmenl
for a continuous line m* railways be-
tween the two oceans. The section
east of Quebec has lieen under construction by thr governmenl for several years, and when finished will he
leased to the Grand Trunk r.ntroail
for ninety-nine years upon a ■■ per
cent basis. The governmenl is also
building the middle section from
Quebec to Winnipeg, which will also
be leased to the Grand Trunk company rn similar terms, ami an auxiliary company, (-Jled the Grand
Trunk Pacific, is building from Winnipeg to the port ot Prime Rupert
>n the Pacific, nnd will complete the
line before the end of next year.
Wiien this bridge is completed it
will Ik* possible to run a train from
Moncton, N.B., to Prince Rupert, II.
('., without change.
TWO HUNDRED FEET HIGH.
At the point at which th. bridge is
lieing     built     tbc banks ol lhe     St.
Lawrence are 200 feet high, precipitous and of sandstone. The depth of
lite rjver is 200 feet for a long dis
banco each side of tlu* center line,
ami the current runs rt tie rate of
abt ul eight miles an hour. The clian
uel piers for tbe bridge will bc 1,800
feet apart, giving the long span refer ret I to, while the shore piers are
situated 500 feet in-shoic on each
side. This gives a distance of 3,800
feel between centres of shore piers.
The river here is 2,000 fret wide al
low water and 2,800 feel at high
water, tlu* tide being about fifteen
feet. At low tide Ihc sites of tlie
shore piers are exposed while the
channel piers are in about ten feel of
water. To avoid the enormous liclt.s
ol ice which descend the St. Lawrence each spring the long span is
necessary.
After the tumuli caused by lhe
catastrophe bad subsided and the
wrccdage had been cleared away the
governmenl undertook to resume
business ami made a coiilracl for rebuilding the bridge. The t'.esign of
the Canadian Bridge company is n
combination of several uhiiTi were
submitted b> dificicnt engineers   ami
attei wards    revised and approved by
a  commission  consisting of   c. N
Monsari.li. than man. Italpb Modjrs-
ka, of Chicago, and C. C. Schneider,
who have supervision td the work ol
conet met int. thut is now going on
Professor A. N. Talbot, of the University of Illinois, was employed to
supervise the tests.
The new bridge will surpass in
several* respects any other ever
elected, even thai by which railway
traii.s cross the Firth ol Forth, n
few miles north ot Edinburgh. It
will have a lp*D of 1,768 feet, while

EDITORIAL NOTES
That veteran Liberal war hor.se,
Sir Illehard t'artwright, delivered a
grcnt speech in Toronto last week,
in support of the reciprocity pad. In
lhe course of his remarks Sir Rich-
uni, as might have been expected,
mndc distinct bits, one of his happiest being the following:
•I notice that these gentlemen are
great upon precedents. Well, I will
nive them one. Two thousand years
or so ago there lived a certain advanced [.ibcral-i'onscrvative of the
name of Demetrius. No man can
havo a greater respect lor genuine
Conservatives than I have. Bui the
advanced Liberal-Conservative ol to
day may bo defined as having no
lixetl principles, and as not knowing
what tu do With ihem if he bail
them. He possesses instincts to
make up for lack of principles. One
of his instincts is to (oat-hcr bis
nest by any means, fair or foul.
Another is lo heat tho Grits anyhow.
"This advanced Llberal-Consorva-
live I'rolectioitist of olden days was
lold that a certain preacher named
Paul was coming to Ephesus. Whereupon Demetrius called the craftsmen
of bis guild together, and told them
that this man was preaching salvation for the people, and Unit tbeii
craft would be in danger. And Demetrius said, 'Let us accuse Paul of
being a i.isloyal man uml a bias
phemer.'
"Wtll, Ihey held their mass meeting, ami it is on record tbat, though
most of them iliiln'l know what il
was about, they howled all the
.same. Anil within a year of the
mass meeting at Ephesus tbere was
established a Christian church, ami
soon two-thirds of the people were
ptofcsslng Christians, whilst the oth
er third would have been had they
ilnnil.
**l say lo you, sir, that ,f reciprocity becomes law- I have no doubt
tlmt in a year or so the Duke ol
Comtaugbt will in* writing to his
royal no-phew, saying that reciprocity
has resultetl in greal benefit to the
people of Canada, (hat they are mitre
prosperous Ihan ever, that tbe country's trade is greater, and tbnt bis
majesty has no mon* loyal subjects
in bis dominions."
sir Richard concluded a characteristically pregnant speech witb these
words:
"If you desire to have prosperity
granted in some reasonable degree to
those portions of our Dominion which
have not prospered as tbe rpst of ns
have, .ben pass Ibis agreement,"
"II you desire to Bee
the    balance     of trade re
stored, then puss this agreement. II
you desire lo render great service
lo tbe British empire to which you
belong, greater ihan presenting twen-
l) Dreadnoughts or a thousand volunteers, then rote for this agreement,
because anything which promote.
good-will between (treat Britain and
the I lilted States is in tbe lllgbcfll
degree for    llu* benefit of the Brllii
eltij lie.
•Wm**, mj frit*,:* U I***"-* has
conic  for Canada     to assert herself.
IVc mad*  great step when
passed lhe British preference,
will be another great step in
right direction,
"So long as Camilla remains a
part of the British empire, Canada's
position geographically is such that
sIh must lie eiiher a hostage or a
link ot union between 'Jrcat Britain
and tin* United States. I speak as
gnat slalesmen on either side would
speak were they here, as Orey tu
Asquith or Balfour would speak,
when I tell you that as matters now
stand in Kmope tbe man ot Bngltali

dcavors to sow the seeds of disci
or promote 111-fcHlng between Kng-
land ami the t nited States is of all
living men the wnrst traitor to lhe
llritish empire and lo the Dominion
of Canada."
ly by a pre-arranged plan, would not
allow him to speak at Proctor and
broke up his meeting in disorder.
Tactics of Ihat kind mav appeal to
tho Nelson brand or Tory, but they
will not impress the average elector
of Kootenay us being either tin evidence of confidence or reliance in their
own ease. Doubtless the Nelson
News felt relieved and delighted
that Mr. Macdonald wns pievenUil
by rowdyism from addressing the
gathering at Proctor, but tlie electors
of Kootenay riding generally will
rorm an entirely different impression
of such luetics. They will reuli/.e
thut Mr. Maodonald's arguments are
proving too much for the Tories, uml
as they cannot answer them intelligently on tht; platform they have to
ivsort to the methods of rowdies to
silence him.

Over 15,000 heard Sir WHtild on

reached the mainland slu illy before

turned largely upon lhe lirst despaLoh ot Canadian troops lo servo in a

Today once nunc Laurier and llourassa li^lit again the battle over
the rigln ol the government ol Canada to participate in Ibe dctonco of
the em Ire. This time It is llle Liberal policy of undertaking the obligation ,,1 ,., .il ilcfenco Ihnl is nf issue in Quebec, llourassa and Monk,
the French Cunservntlvo leaders, have joined hands to destroy Laurler because  ho   is loo llrllisli for them.   And    e more   to complete       the
parallelism, lho Laurier who is too llrilish lor thi' Nationalists and Con
sei vallves ul CJueboo is being held up lo tlio people ol Ontario as nol
llrilish pniiiie.li for thorn.
The real Lnurlor is the Laurier of Hint impassioned speech ol IIIUU,
lhe man ol whom .1. S. Wllllsnn, edilor ol Tho News, said in Phi,! that
"he labors with strenuous hand and abounding faith lo unify nml con
solidate II*' various elements of ll.e Dominion."
And this true Canadian, this pal riot cl unslnlr.od honor, is held up lo
(he scorn and contempt of lhe Brillsh-hora as an enemy of his native
land, ciigap-,1 in a conspiracy against the integrity of the empire. The
British-born will not he deceived.
************** ********.******

*   The Rj>eal Laurier  »

************** **************
We want Hie British-born, nml liic Canadian-burn, and tlie lorclgn-born
to turn for a moment from lho caricatures of Laurier as a conttncntal-
isl, as a foe to the empire, as a conspirator againsl Canadian national
ity, that may be found every day In thu Conservative press oi Canada,
and take a  look at    tho real Laurier.
Tlie portrait is painted by ,1. S. Willisoii. In a book cnlilled "I.aurier ami lhe Liberal Party," published in PUIS, alter be had become editor
ol the News, Mr. Willlson devoted a chapter to Imperialism and Racialism. Iu it lie shows that in 1000—as today—the French Conservatives,
allied wilh llourassa, made their campaign upon lhe cry that Laurier in
authorizing the sending ot Canadians lo participate in lhe war of South
Africa had sacrificed the autonomy of Canada, while in Ontario the cry
was "We must maintain Canada as a liritisli country: let us vole
against absolutism, boodleism, racialism, d sloyalty and Tarte." lie
slu ws that during the session before the general election ot HHIO, while
ll.e Canadian troops were tattling lor the empire on the veldt, llourassa
attacked llm government in the bouse of commons for sending the con
lingents   to South Africa without the direct authority of parliament.
In one ol the greatest speeches ever delivered before the commons ol
Canada Sir Wilfrid defended his action. Mr. Willisoii thus narrates Ihc
closing portions  of   that speech, with its reference to Mr. llourassa:
am
ile pointed out that the government had called for volunteers, but
hail compelled no man to go to South Africa. It had simply provided
tbe machinery and expenses to enable these volunteers to oiler their lives
lor the honor  ol Iheir country and lho llag  they loved.    lie continued:
"Shall the sacrifice be all on tlie ono side and none on llle oilier, lhe
obligation all on the one side and none ou the otlier? We were not
compelled to do what wc did, but il wc chose to he generous, lo do a
little more than wc are bound 1 o do, where is a man lit ing who
would find fault with us lor that avion? lie (llourassa) dreads the consequences of this action in sending out a military contingent to South
Alriea. Let me tell him Irom the nol torn ol my heart tbat my heart is
lull of the hopes I entertain of Hie beneficial results which will accrue
Irom that action. When our young volunteers sailed from our shores lo
join Ihc llrilish army In South Allien, great were' our expectations
that they would display on Ibose disiant battlefields lhe same courage
which had been displayed by their lailiers when lighting against one another in the last century. Again, in many breasts there was a fugitive
sense ol uneasiness at the thought Uiat Ihe first facing of musketry ami
cannon by raw recruits is always a severe trial. But when the telegraph brought us the news that such was the good impression made by
our volunteers ihat the commander-in-chief had placed thoni iu the post
oi honor, iu the lirst rank, to share tire danger wilh that famous ci rps
the (lordon Highlanders, when we heard that they had justified fully the
confidence placed in them, tbat Ihcv had charged like veterans, thai Iheir
conduct was heroic ami lind win lor them the encomiums ol the conimaii-
iler-iu-chiel and llie unstinted admiration of Iheir comrades, who bad
facial death upon a hundred battlefields in all Parts ol the world, Is
there a man whose bosom did not swell with pride, that noble.'! ol all
pride, lhal pride ol pure patriotism, lhe pride of the consciousness ol our rising strength, tbe pride if lhe consciousness ihat ou that day it hail been revealed to lho world that a
new power had arisen in file west? Nor is that all. The work ot nnii n
nnd harmony between lhe chief races of this country is not ycl com
plele. We know by lhe unfortunate occurrences thai tool,
place only last week lhal there is much 'to do In that way. But Ihere
is m, bind of union so strong as Ihc bond created by common dangers
facial In common. Today there are men in South Africa representing tlie
two branches of Hie Canadian family fighting side by side tor tlio honor
of Canada. Already some of them have fallen, giving to tbo country
lite last lull measure of devotion. Their remains have been laid in the
same gjrave, there to remain to the end of lime in that lasl fraternal
embrace. Can we nol hope* I ask my honorable friend himself, Ihat in
that grave shall he buried the last vestiges of our former antagonism?
II such shall he the result, it we can indulge that hope, if we can believe
that in that grave shall bc buried contentions, the sending of the contingents would be the greatest service ever rendered Canada since Confederation.'
"This speech," says Mr. Willlson, "lind an extraordinary effect, upon
parliament. It was cheered tumultously by monitors on both sides, and
the crowded galleries Bel decorum nl defiance, and joined willi iincon
tioliahfe enthusiasm In the demonsl ration below. It loUChed the hearl
of Canada, and in (Ireat llriloin was received wilh unaffected praise and
gratitude, praise for iis power and beauty mid finish, gratitude f,,r its
silendid vindication ol lhe British cause, and splendid utterance of the
love nt.il devotion ol the Canadian people to the embattled empire. It

o   what itm-i this mean?
,\. ti means thai th*' question ol
RfMcptlng ui rejecting the reciprocity
agreement Is now -■!- to tin* voters
uf Canada.
0- Iteciprocily, then, is Dm chlel
Issue to t»' dlscntatftd "i lhe presenl
campaign?
\.  it, is.    it is practically     tho
i.nly issue.
i). Wil tho discussion proceed up-
nn strict!) party lines'.'
>*• No; a nr*'*'t many Conservatives
.ih- in favor of the. measure, anil
..tne Liberals are against it.
i}. What arguments nre used by Ms
opponents?
\ Chiefly two: (l).That rcolpro-
cfty will lead to annesatlon, ami (2)
ihat it will prove injurious to the
business interests of Canada,
i} As to tbc first argument,, upon
what basis does it rest?
A. ()n the basis that greater freedom of ititcrc,ji:rsc with our neighbors will tend to weaker our allegiance to Great Britain.
■/. Would this result bo protfible
it' that intercourse should prove, unprofitable?
\.   No
(• Is It, then, assumed by iis opponents thai reciprocity will prove
profitable to Canada?
\.   No; quite the contrary.
c. Do they allege, that Canadians
••.ill lt« disposed Inward annexation
because they will Tmd reciprocity unprofitable from a business standpoint?
A That is what they seem to
in--an.
<'. is the agreement in form of a
iMaty     for a    s|t«*ial   term, which
musl Ire adhered     to   WhoUtOI profit
able or not?
a. No, it is mcrel) a mutual understanding wbieh either party is nt
liberty to terminate at nay time.
if. Why, then, should Canadians
'iimk of annexation because, upon
trial, thev were dissatisfied with   re-
ijirudty?
A. No reason can be given. It
ibey lliii not tike it. they could repeal it.
Q, Why should they Ik* disposed
toward annexation if the agreement
proved a great boon to their country '
A. Because annexation would give
them American political institutions
as well ns the American market.
Q. Do they prefer American Institutions to their own?
A.  Decidedly not.
<). Why would they change their
minds-'
A.   f do not know.
0,. What is the basis tor the second argument, vi/., that reciprocity
nil prove   injurious io the business
interests of Canada?
A. It is based on the assert ion
that tin* great increase in tho Importation of American goods will seriously injure our domestic manufacturing establishments.
if. Ones tho reciprocity agreement
provide for a lowering of tho Canadian tarifl mi manufactured goods?
A. No; i \i I'jitifi'.'i in the case of
agricultural implements and prepared
meats.
Q.   Are llic.su reductions great?
A,    No,   very slight. ,
<-}.  Are the establishments affected
able to stand the reduction?
A. They make millions of profits
every year.
i}. Is the reduction likely lo hurt
ihem at oil?
A. No; free access lo the American
market wil*. undoubtedly add to their
business.
t). ti general manufacturing cslab-"
lishments are not concerned in the
proposed reductions of duty at all,
why should tliey Ih* disturbed?
A. Because they may fear that
this slight taste of lower duties may
lead lo a demand for a general reduction nf the tariff.
I}. Can you reconcile this with
the Idea that the reciprocity agreement wilt prove an injury lo the
people nt Canada?
A. No; the two ideas cannot be
reconciled.
t}. How will the reduction of duties nr llie putting of natural products on tlie free list affect wage-
earners.'
A. 11 wil enable them to buy
their foodstuffs nt a lower rate; In
otlier words, it will reduce their cost
of living.
(j. Will not the farmers uf Canada
obtain lii*-*h<*r prices iu the home
market     than they now enjoy?
A. No; Ihe free entry of American
natural products will tend to lower
pliers,
tl Wherein, then, will the Canadian farmer benefit?
A. In the addition of another
great market fur his goods.
Q, What markets does he possess
at present?
A. Tbe home market, In Canada,
and the British market* across the
ocean.
i). Ts tho American market worth
much to Canadian producers?
A. Tt is.a market of On.non.niHi
of perhaps the best customers in the
world.
Q. Is an extensive free list of natural products   worth much to    the
ennadtan householder and the cltltens
in general?
A. It means simply nn addition to
the purchasing power ol their wages.
(J. Have Canadian statesmen of
the pnst tnken the view that reclp-
roclty In natural products with tbe
United States would be a goml thing
fnr Canada?
A. Tliey have; leaders of both parties have striven with all their might
to secure a reciprocity" treaty, since
th.* abrogation of the one which
ceased in ISO*;.
('. Can you give the names of. any
nf these statesmen?
A. Among Conservative leaders I
would name Sir .lolm A. Macdonald,
Sir A. T. Quit, Sir .lohn Thompson,
Sir Charles Tupper ami Sir Leonard
Tillcy.
(J. Were any of these men suspect
cd of disloyalty to llritish institutions?
A. No; they were all regarded as
eminently loyal.
<). Vet they strove to secure reciprocity with the UntiediStates?
A. Yes; used every possible endeavor.
(J. Was the Conservative party in
general favorable to such a measure?
A. Yes; Sir .lohn A. Macdonald as
their leader, declared fnr "reciprocity of trade or reciprocity of tnr-
Iffs," and they supported him to a
man.
0,. If Sir .lohn A. Macdonald were
alive today and wished to vote in
the coining election consistently with
his party's record and his own oil
repeated opinions on reciprocity, haw
would he cast his ballot?
A. lie wrulil he obliged to vote
for I.aurier and Larger Markets'

The Russian's showing was pitiful,
the crowd decreed that he had

through tears declared that he bad
entered the arena with a wrecked

It Is certain that the foreigner's
nerves were on edge lie spent a
sleepless night and was pale when he
crawled through the rope.
Frank A. notch, alter tbe routes!,
Editor The Herald:
Sir: Might I If allowed through,
tho medium of your columns to ad
dress a few remarks to my fellow
British era who aro very much in lhe
limelight in the iiililn.il arena at
the present lime.
One of the most frequent argri-
ments which is being used against
tho proposed reciprocity pad, js that
the results of reciprocity will lead
to the annexation of Canada by Uie
United Slates and we are constant!j
having the grand old llag waved in
our faces accompanied with the crj
to save tho empire. I yield to none
in my loyalty io the throne an.I
country ami if I could for om- moment see that Increased commercial
exchange between Canada and lhe
U. s, would lead to annexation I,
for one, would work tooth and nail
against lhe pad, but lhe suggestion
is so obviously an election cry thai
such ar. Improbable result is not
worth blscusslng.
It is only a few months ago that
the Englishman's stoek in ihis country was considerably below par. It
was a common occurrence lo read
that "No Englishman Need Apply."
ami now our Conservative friends arc
boosting bim sky high ami crying to
him to save tho empire. When 1
look around ar.tl examine the history of those who are so loud in
their efforts to make us believe that
they arc the saviors of tho empire,
I cannot help feeling that if we Englishmen do allow ourselves to bc misled hy this llag waving and singing
of (iod Save the King, which is so
transparently Insincere and ridiculously false, then we shall Indeed well
earn the title these self-same men
so recently threw at us, namely—
"fool Englishmen."
Are we to learn our lessons of
loyalty from the mouth of an American school boy? Are wc to look to
men to support the empire whose
political history in the old country
is such tbal they dare not return
there? Are we to be 1 aught Canadian commercialism by a galvanised
Canadian who thobgh he has taken
the oath of allegiance, is still as
much an American as ever he was.
and even now in all his dealings
gives the American the best of it?
No, thank God, our loyalty is born
in us, it is, I might say, in our system, ami no petty commercial treaty
between one country or another can
ever effect it. I liave a very poor
opinion of the loyally of anyone who
suggests such a contingency; me-
thinks his loyalty is of very recei.t
birth.
Englishmen do not be mislead' The
Conservative party have don'* not
one single thing to strengthen tbe
bor.ds of llu- empire, while in the
other hand we have actual perfor.
mantes by lho Liberal party, lot
example, tbe preferential duty and
the sending tf soldiers to our     help
South Africa. In conclusion, 1
would say that there is nut, mu
ean there be any question ol loyal-
this reciprocity pact it h>
purely and simply a business proposition ami it is so good ,. business
proposition that the Conservative
party know if it is passed life ben**-
lits to the country will be so great
that then hopes of get tint: Into power will It shattered fur many years
to come. That is the reason, the
real reason why they so bitterly and
so unscrupulously oppose reciprocity
Yours truly,
Englishman.
