The Reciprocity Negotiations
Pull Text of Correspondence Between Negotiator*
The discussion over tbe reciprocity
negotiations continues witli unabated
/enl. Opinions ol tbe most diversified nature, many of thom entirely
without bearing upon the actual facts
of the ense, are being expressed iu
the press and by public men Carefully weighing the pros ami eons, uud
allowing fur the inevitable iutroiUtc
tion of partisan, feeling, it appears
to he becoming plainer day by titty
thai the great hulk of the peoplo on
both sides of the line favor the pass
ing of the reciprocity measure and
that despite the loud outcries of
speeial interests, the arrangement
will be ratified both by the Canadian
and the American legislatures.
As showing clearly the lines upon
which the negotiators worked, we
reproduce below the correspondence
that passed between the Canadian
negotiators and Secretary Knox
Washington, January 21, mil.
Jiear .Mr. Secretary:
1. The negotiations initiated by
the President several mouths ago
through your communication to His
Kxcellency the Hritish Ambassador
respecting a reciprocal tariff arrangement between the I'nited States
and Canada, and since carried on between representatives of tin; governments of the two countries, haw
now, we are happy lo say, reached a
stage whieh gives reasonable assurance of a conclusion satisfactory to
both countries.
2. Wc desire lo set forth what wc
understand to he the contemplated
arrangement, and to ask ynu to confirm it.
3. It is agreed that tin- desired
tarifl changes shall not take the for
mal shape of a treaty, but that the
governments of tin* two countries
will use their utmost efforts (<> bring
ahout such changes by concurrent
legislation at Washington and Oi
■1. The governments oi tbe two
countries having made this agreement from the conviction th.it. ll
confirmed by the necessary lenisla
live authorities,   it will benefit     the
people    on hotb   sides or    ihr bordci
line, we mny reasonably hope and
expect that tin* arrangement, II an
confirmed, will remain in operation
(or a considerable period Onl) tins
expectation on the pait of both gov
ernments would Justif) the time and
lahoi that have been employed in lhe
maturing of the proposed measure*
Nevertheless, il Is distini lij umlei

people of the Init.si State* and Can
ada as one which will strengthen
the friendly relations now bappilj
prevailing and promote lhe commci
rial interests ol both countries

that thev shall be leeipn-i all) flee

ported Into the t nited Stale'- from
Canada or Into Canada from lhe
United States \ lisl of ibese ar
tieles, with the rates of duly, is set
forth in Schedule 11.
7. In a tew instances it lias been
loiuid that tbe adoption of a com
mon rate will be inconvenient) and,
therefore, exceptions hnve to he
8. Schedule C specifies articles
upon which the I'nited States will
levy thc rates therein sel forth when
such articles are unpolled trom Can
n Schedule li specifies articles
upon which Canada will levy the
rales therein set forth whin sucb articles are Imported from lhe I'nited
in. With respect to Hie discussions
tbat have taken place concerning tbe
duties upon the several grades of
pulp, printing paper, etc.—mechanically ground wood pulp, chemical
wood pulp, bleached   and unbleached,
news printing pupei and other printing paper, and hoard made from
wood pulp, ui ihe vatlio not exceeding four cents pei pound at the place
ol shipment— we note Uiul you desire
to provide Dial mm li articles from
Camilla shall he made fiee of duty in
the United Stales onh upon certain
conditions respecting the shipment
of pulp wood from Canada, ll is
necessary that We should point out
ihal this is a mal ter In whieli we
are not in ;i position lo make any
agreement. The restrictions at
resellt existing in Canada are ol a
provincial character. Tiny have
been adopted hy several of the provinces with regard to what, are he-
lieved to be provincial interests. We
jhnvi! neither the right nor the desire
to interfere with the provincial authorities in the free exercise of their
constitutional powers in the administration of their public lands. The
provisions you are proposing to make
respecting the conditions upon which
these classes of pulp and paper may
he imported into the United States
free of duty must necessarily he for
the present inoperative. Whether
the provincial governments will desire tu in any way modify their regulations with a view to securing
the free admission of pulp and paper
from their provinces into the markel
of the United Stales must he a
question for the provincial authorities lo decide In the meantime,
the present duties on pulp ami paper
imported from the I'liilcd States
into Canada will remain. Whenever
pulp and paper of the classes already
mentioned are admitted into the
United States free of duty from all
parts of Canada, then similar articles, when imported from the
i'nited States shall lie admitted into
Canada free of duty
11 Tlie tarifl changes proposed
might not alone he sufficient to fully
bring about the more favorable conditions which hoth parties dc&ffc' It
is conceivable thai customs reguln
tions whieli are denned essential i.i
come cases might operate unfavorably
upon the trade between the United
Slates and Canada, and that sucb regulations, if made without due regard lo the special conditions of the
two countries, might to some extent defeat the good purpose <>f thc

It is enstomari in organizations
such as tin* board of trade tor thc
retiring president to make some few
remarks as to what bas been done
during tbe previous year and to give,
to some extent., an account of the
stewardship ot tin* officers elected at
the lust annual meeting.
I think we may all (.-cl pleased
with the amount ol work that has
been taken up during the year and
while there is mi immediate benefit
irom a itooil deal of it   upon   which
one eon    plat ne's   finner and say
that such unit such is the dirtt-t result oi thc .-fl*,it*. of the hoard ot
trade, I think that no (air-minded
person in looking at what has been
done ean say that the work bas in
any sense lieen wasted
1 am i*l.i't to tie able to report an
increased membership and the more
regular holding nt monthly meetings
While we did iml    sun it in holding
our general meeting every month
there were only two   ol three elcep
tions aud those lur good cause
Among thc matters which ban-
come before us lor our consideration, the tirst lhat I will brinK to
your attention was the formation of
thc Associated Hoards ot Trade "I
Kast Kootenay. which comprises
Cranhrook, Fernie, Ilosmci ..nd Mich
el with good prosp.fi ot an Increased
membership in the near future This
board ol trade has in tin- past been a
member o( the Associated Boards "i
Eastern Hritish Columbia .md it was
decided in the .ally part ot the year
that with the development which is
going on in this portion of Kast**ru
Hritish Colombia more attention
could be given to the weds of uur
district by forming an association
(or the mutual txn.tit ol all portion-
ol East Kootenai This association
was organized on the 27th April.
1910, when their Ilrsi annual convention was held in Fernie, at which
many matters oi great importance
wen* taken up and dct.ll with The
second annual convention
was        io be        held i"
Cranbrook on the 2«th lanuaiv lost
but owing to tin* congested 'tain
service the meting was not as tolly
representative as was desired and it
was therefore turned into an informal
meeting nnd adjourned to a later
date when the regular animal convention will be held in Fernie
Thc next matter was the Voting
Men's Christian association building
in connection with which we made
representations to tin* C.P.R that
thc site whieh was originally thought
ot on tbe other side of the rmluay
track was not suitable Afler a
good deal of discussion and man)

A programme of addresses ..
topics bad been arranged as
ial feature of this meeting,
Innately those who had been
to discuss the several topics, had,
for one reason or another, been unable to prepare set addresses
However, brief remarks, very much
to the    point, took their place, .Mr.
I*. I.und opening with some practical
suggestions regarding the agricultural possibilities of Ibe district.     Mr,
Lund first took    occasion to compll-
meiil the board   of trade on the excellent    work    already accomplished
and the   splendid    opportunities Ior
improving   upon this     record     that
offered.     He    thought the hoard deserving of  the hearty   support id
every citizen and    of every resident
in the district.       Whilst be had not
bad linn- to   prepare a special paper
on the subject entrusted to him    for
discussion, Mr. I.und said thai       he
tind no   doubt    thul* the agricultural
possibilities of this district were verj
great and warranted    all the attention tbat could be given them.     For
his part be     wns inclined to     think
Hint   perhaps     loo    great attention
bad geeii     devoted, in    the pasl. Ij.
the fruit growing prjssibillUis of lla
district, not ibat be wished in    any
way to deprecate   these great possi
hilities, but be thought Hint at    the
present time it     would be more profitable to give attention to the mix
ed farming opportunities, which were
simply incalculable!    The local    de
mand iu this   dislriel for hay, pota
toes, vegetables   and   beef amounted
to an enormous sum, much of which,
under existing conditions, had to   be
expended   on    the outside.        There
w.-ic r.Mums of acres of nvn ..I'-e
land iu this distriet available      for
cattle   raising and     past experience
bad taught  Ihem that  they       could
raise in profusion every kind nf vegetable,     lie thought it would hr mote
to ilu- point at this stage of develop
ment to   pui forth efforts to secure
a class of settler   who would engage
in mixed     farming, the fruit raising
would follow in due course      He deprecated any action ibat would     re
sail in bringing inexperienced people
inio the district to engage in    nni
culture     exclusively,    such n coursi
would only result in giving tti.- coun-
trj      a black eve        There    wns in.
more   enthusiastic bellcvei in      the
agricultural    possibilities ol lhe dis
• m i    than     himself,     hut     lie was
doubtful nf the    wisdom ol de1 ol lug
loo much attention, at     tin- present
time, tn the fruit growing branch ol
the industry
The next topir foi discussion was
the proposed sewerage system, Mayor
Hunt nnd Mr. King being hilled tn
speak thereon Mayor Hunt frankly
admitted that be had been fnr too
busy in connection with his elvic
luiies to lind time to prepare a
Paper nu the subject. He hiieilv reviewed tlie situation, pointing nu1
ihe urgency of the demand for a sew

Mr. Fink, sneaking in reference tti
Mr. Lund's remarks, said that thousands of dollars were going out of

The Herald has reliable advices

appropriation foi this.district, whllsl
not coming up to the lull amount

The board of trade's annual meet
htg last Monday evening disclosed a
very satisfactory state ol affairs, so
far as that organization is concerned.
The board has done and is doing useful work, and its continued prosperity Is something that every citizen
■.hould deem a matter for his personal consideration. During the
meeting some interesting announcements were made, none more so
than that hy Mr. J. P. Fink io the
effcel lhat iu the near future a
wholesale grocery would he established within the citv II is about
tune that Cranbrook's geographical
position received recognition alf the
hands of those engaged in wholesale

forerunner of several similar Institutions.
We offer no apology for the large
amount of space that has been devoted to the reproduction in full of the
new reciprocal tariff hei ween Canada
and lhe I'nited Stales in this issue.
It is abundantly evident from the
discussions Hint have so far taken
place on this subject thai there was
need for (lie publication in full of
.■'..■ty detail ol the proposed new
luiiti schedules. We read Iu the
press of resolutions being adopted by
public bodies, of speeches by promiii
<nt parliamentarians and politicians,
condemning the new tariff, many of
whieli display a lamentable lack of
knowledge of the details of the matin discussed, an Ignorance qulto Intelligible, because Ihe subject is one
that calls for very careful considers
lion of a great mass of figures and
facts, access to which is not avail
able at a moment's notice. What is
surprising is that men, with any
sense of responsibility, should hasten
I., give expression to views based upon such Inadequate information. The
Herald's aim In discussing the new
tarifl proposals has been to avoid, so
far as possible, all partisan consider
a tions, and lo confine criticisms and
comment to the actual facts of the
rase und Hie conditions that may he
- haled thereby. l-'or that reason
we have gone tn llie expense, in
time and labor, ol reproducing exact
ly as appears in the parliamentary
record of voles and proceedings the
full schedules. With these before
them, critics will be in a position
lo discuss intelligentlv the hearings
j.f the proposed changes.
In (his connection we wish, in particular, to draw attention to the resolution adopted by the Mountain
Lumbermen condemning (be proposed
reciprocity tariff, a resolution that
ie cannot but think was drafted and
dopted, in Ignorance of the actual
facts, Reference lo the schedules,
published herewith, will show thai
the existing Canadian tariff, as it
affects lumber, has not been changed
nt anv particular, whereas lhe t'nit-
i il States tariff is In he mntcrially
reduced. In fare of this fact it is
hanl to conceive what justification
lhe Mountain Lumbermen's association can offei for passim; a resolution
j ondemnlng the reciprocity tariff.
Their Industry ran only be affected
beneficially by the proposed changes.
Ihelr American compel i I urs being
granted no advantage in the negotla

this province, appear to be squealing
before they are hurl H is true that
In their case there Is proposed some
loss of protection in the shnpe of

that is clone at most mills—then it is dry

Immediately after the meeting bad
been called to order, School Trustees
Ourd and White, who wen- presenl
by request, were called upon to   ad
dress the council
Mr. (iurd briefly outlined particular, oi a meeting held between the
hoard of school trustees and the
mayor and Alderman .lackson, for
tin- purpose ui' discussing ilu* public
school estimates. As a result ul
that friendly Interchange of views
On- school hoard had reduced their
estimates hy some $4000, in the hope
thai ihe council would he able to see
iis way clear to pass the amended
statement without further delay.
Mi Ourd went on tu express his
vert hearty appreciation uf the spirit
in which the mayor ami Alderman
Jackson had met the trustees He
fell confident from lite altitude as-
siitiii-d bv these gentlemen that the

Mr White heartily endorsed Mr.
Ourd'* remarks, expressing his per*
[sonal appreciation of the sympathetic
I attitude displayed by the council's
representatives towards the school
board, which, in his opinion, augured
well for their future relations
\Merman Jackson reported briefly
tin- particulars of the mayor's und
bis interview wilh the school board,
expressing in strong terms his ap-
pmiation of the conciliatory and entirely reasonable spirit in which the
trustees bad presented their side ul
tin* case. In view of what had
transpired he fell that the feast the
council would do would be to pass,
al once, amended estimates
Mavor Hunt endorsed every word
said by Alderman Jackson and expressed his keen pleasure in the remarks that bad fallen from Trustee
Ourd, He could assure the sehool
board that it wus his wish to maintain the friendliest relations with the
board, both bodies had been elected to
serve the best interests of thi- city.
It was then moved by Aid. Jackson, seconded hy Aid. Bowness, lhat
the amended school estimates,
amounting to $16,619.88, he accepted This motion wns adopted unanimously.
Aid. Jackson, in characteristic
frank manner, then proceeded to discuss a question that for a time promised to lead to rather a heated con-
tinvetsy, hut in the outcome threatened trouble, wns averted hy the alderman giving formal notice of motion on tbe subject to come up at
lhe next meeting ol the council.
Md Jackson opened his remarks
in this conncctlan, hy bluntly admitting that during the past year

certain Civic matters that he probably should have However, he hud
Since heen looking very carefully into tbem nnd he now wanted some
explanation as to how the city
solicitor justified his position In acting ut one and the same time both
as solicitor for the city and as solicitor tor the firm of contractors,
who were engaged in litigation with
the school board. He did not see
how Mr Thompson could straddle
the fence in this way Mr Jackson
particularly intimated that his remarks in this connection were entirely impersonal and unbiased, lie had
always bad the friendliest relations
with Mr. Thompson and did not wish
to say anything that could be regarded as offensive But as a private cltlten he would not think it fair

Aid. Jackson said thut he was n
ratepayer und an alderman aud he
thought that it was both the right
lime und place to bring up the question .
Mr. Thompson again remarked that
he hud no hesitancy in explaining his
position. Prior to the action
against the contractors he had aeted
(or the school hoard as solicitor
without pay. He had, impersonally,
ottered his services to the school
hoard, when the eontractors started
llu-ir action, but the hoard had decided to go elsewhere tor legal advice When the contractors came
lo him, he had discussed the matter
willi then Mayor Fink, who had
agreed with him that it would be
peifeclly proper (or him (Thompson)
lu take a case against the school
hoard. The school hoard had no
mure lo do wilh the city council

Aid. Jnckson then resumed his discussion ol the city solicitor's relations with the school contractors.

contention that the school board
was altogether a separate hody (rom

Md. Johnson said he did not thoroughly understand the situation and
COIlld not vole intelligently one way

not vote ou the case without receiving legal advice It Mr Thompson
were in the wrong, he would vote for

wanted opportunity to secure legal

Aid. Taylor wanied to know why
the cily had to have a solicitor permanently engaged. When the city
wanted legal advice they could get
it and he would just as soon engage
Mr. Thompson as anybody else.
Aid. Itowness said that il there be
any regular procedure tn a ease ol
Ihis kind be wanted it adopted. In
his opinion the whole discussion wns
out ot order.
Aid. Jackson said he did not think
he was out of order. Ile was ac

Thompson had always actrd an    bis
legal advisor in iho past and would
do so in lhe (unite, Hut he could
noi see how he (Thompson) could
consistently act (nr both ihe cily
council and the contractors. \ party at Fernie had told him thai the
contractors were worthless and
could get nu local legal advice, nor
at Nelson, and that Mr. Thompson
was the only lawyer who eould ho
Induced to act for them. For his
pari he wanted the matter to he

to lake its proper course.,
The outcome of the discussion being

next meeting of the city council 1
shall bring up the question o( City

Mr. King, being present at the request of Mayor Hunt, was called upon to address the council.
Dr. King said that some immediate
arrangements had to be made (or the
care ot infectious cases. Kxisting
accommodations were entirely unfit
and lhe cily was taking a great risk.
Dr. Green was at thc coast al     the
'present time, conferring wilh the

Gentlemen :—
We take pleasure In submitting herewith   report     with   plans foi 'I
sewerage of your city.
The design consists of an Intercepting mam drain through ilu ■
along the lowest lying ground, Into which all subsidiary drainage will
discharge, thence by *m outfall newer to sewage purification works lull)
a mile to the northcnsl of tho city limits, where an outlet is obtained
Into St, iloseph's creek, where it crosses the railwa) through culvert
Tho enpacllj ol the drainage system   is    ample    Un   extension  md
growth to :i population of ahout 15,000 and   capable of   taking a rea  n
able proportion ol nurracu water, while Um- lirst  Installation at  purlfica
tion works is good for fully 5000 people
UY lind Uuil with your excellent system     ol lanes   20 feel wide
wmi: out economically nnd to advantage, thus saving most ><f tho streei
Including Bakei street, from being torn up lor sewers  and branch conm-
lions in buildings     The construct! >n   the   lanes  behind the buslm-.;s
blocks mi [taker   streei can be ian nil out quickly in shoit stretches nnd
will give but little Interruption to traffic.
Tbe purification and disposal winks consist of (1) a small screen
chamber where the sewage is flrsl roughly screened before passtiiK Into
(2) ihe liquefying oi septic tank. This is a covei in tank of concrete,
with itccessarj steel re-lnforcfng, of dimensions shown on plan,
hnvlng hat tic walls, sludge pockets, manholes and all uecessary
appliances. Thc liquid diluent irom the tank is passed onto it) tin-
percolating filter built up of course sized material to u depth of 6 feet
on a concrete Hoot CO ft. x 50 It. The tank liquid is spread evenh
over the entire surface of this (liter hy means of special patented
sewage distributors. The effluent From the percolating Filter, which
is already in a high purified state, is finally passed through (1) n
(Ine-groincd finishing filter oF sand. HO ft. x 30 ft. x :'* ft. deep, where
the fmal stage of purification takes placet resulting til nn cftHiont with
a very high degree of purification physically, chemically nnd baoterlolo
glcally. A sludgo (5) is pcovldcd onto which the mineral sludge
which accumulates In tho tank can he run periodically for drying out
and final disposal. The filters are arranged so that compartments can he
shut nfT for surface cleaning, etc., without Interfering with the coiiUtin
us use of the worvs. All byepass pipes, valves, storm overflows, etc.,
ir the efficient operation of the works are included.
We submit herewith a carefully prepared   schedule   giving   in   detail

Why Jardine Bolted
JOHN   (M.1VKH     GIVES      KKAI.
Tho Tory papers have heen making
a groat to-do over tbo bolt of John
Jardine, MP P , lot Rstmlmatl, dom
lhe Liberal ranks to the Mcltnle
side of the house.
It is of In teres I to know jit.it why
lanliiie saw tit to renounce his allegiance Tlio fads have been fully exposed hy John Oliver, thc provincial
Liberal leader.
In the course of a speech made a!
the annual meeting of tbe Ksipiimall
Ilistrict Liberal association lasl
week John Oliver, president of the
liritisli Columbia Liberal association,
laid liefuit John Jardinc's electors
ilu- real reason for their representative's Withdrawal from the Liberal
party, aud for bis cowardly assault
upon the mlnlstei oi mines in the
Victoria office of tbo federal public
works department last autumn. Mr
Oliver, discussing thc mallei, said:
What Is at the bottom of Ibis assault'' I tell you tonight of what I
know, of the things of wliich 1 bold
the evidence. Thc reason for this
assault on William Templeman was
that at that very time and thnt
very place William Templeman was
slopping the grail or John Jardine
(loud cheers and cries "that is
line") I toll you, my friends, that
in what I say tonight I am not fenced iu by the privileges of tin- floor
of parliament, where a man is free
iiom being taken into the courts tor
whal ho says I stand here tonight with the honorable position I
hold as president of the Hritish Columbia Liberal association and with
iht property accumulations nf my life
tn back it, and I say to you tbat
the cause of that assault was that
William Templeman was taking steps
at that time to put an end to      lhe
grafting of J-jhu Jardine
John Jardine, when bo was elected
in 1907, claimed that he lost work
on account of bis position us a Liberal representative, Ho appealed to
the public works department and
was given work at the quarantine
station. Ho was authorized to do
work to a certain extent, lie went
on and did work and put in claims—
I am speaking conservatively—to the
extent of several thousand dollars in
excess of lhe cost of the work he
was authorized to do ("that is
right") He received that money
without the knowledge of the minister, without the knowledge of the
government, and William Templeman, having learned of that, went In
the official who paid that money unit
wanted lo know what authority he
bad to pay that without author!'/*
Uon, ami bis demand for an explanation led up to tho assault. If Mr.
Jardine disputes this let him take
me into the courts of tbe land and be
can liml the proof.
Is tbis (he only thing? What bus
been tbe cry of your representative
ever since the last election? Is il
not that he has not been fairly
treated hy thc Liberal party; is that
not the cry? ("yes"). Has he not
been        making that cry?
("yes"), He declared yesterday that he had boon making financial sacrifices and gave that us a
reason why bo wanted the leadership
—to improve his financial position.
After last session 1 received information lhat Mr. Jardine was complaining about not getting assistance
from the Liberal party in paying bis
election expenses, and a man lold ttie
one day that thoro were two Liberals iu iho legislature and thai
"Dick could havo one of them an)
time he liked to pay his bills."
There arc accounts for the lasl
provincial election In the Esqulmnlt
ilistrict which ho placed in my hands
last September, and put It up to me
to discbarge. I stand hero tonight
and tell ymi, the Liberal electors of
Esquimau who elected Mr. Jardine
as your representative, that, whether intentionally or unintentionally,
these accounts are padded to tho extent of hundreds of dollars. Do you
know what that means? I will put
it plainer, John Jardine represent
ed his expenses to bo hundreds of
dollars moro than what they wore
and tried to get the Liberal party
to pay him this large sum In excess
ol what he spent. Do you under
stand9 Is it plain enough? Is ii
plain enough to found au action at
law upon? If it is let John Jardine
start    it tomorrow    and 1 will stay
here aud give him the proofs.
I regret t.i have tu make ihis
statemeut but l refuse lo allow such
a man to vjllifv the party uf which
I am the head. It is a duly forced
upon me und 1 have to perform It.
That is thc position; that is tho true 1
position; that is why John Jardine
Is a Conservative today and is supporting lhu McBride government.
