DR. KING'S ADDRESS
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen s—It given uie very greal
pleasure to meet the people of
Uo|deu tonight and have iiii opportunity of discussing the issue lie-
fore usat the present time uml in
reference to which wc will lie asked
to make up our minds and east our
ballots on tbe :11st of Sepleiuliei'.
It was my privilege mid honour to
receive the nomination of tlie
Liberal party—or really lhe Itcri-
procity party so far as tliih campaign is concerned, as there is
only one issue before the people
at NcIboii a few days ago Since
that time I have been in my home
town for some days; have travelled
up through the Windermere valley
holding a meeting at Atlinlnier
last night and I may say Unit it
lias been a great pleasure lo me to
find that all of my old friends in
former cent, bis. as well i s ninny
new ones, ure surrounding mid
supporting me iu this contest. It
has also lieen very gratifying to
me to meet people here in Golden
and all through the Windermere
district who have kindly expressed
Ihe sentiment tlmt they were
pleated to have me us their candidate in this contest. I mny say loo
Mr. Chairman, that, ns we journeyed up the valley, the beautiful
Kooteuuy and Columbia valley.
which is destined to receive. I lie-
Have, moro development in thevery
iear future, to tint! that willi
.cnrcely it single exception the
ranchers und liusiuess men
throughout are heartily in favor of
the policy of Iteciprocily iu natural products with our neighbors
to the south of us. lufact I fee]
confident that were it not for parly
IKilitics this sentiment would lie
practically i-nuniu oils. It 's n
straight business proportion nml,
when viewed as such and studied
a. such, no man can deny its ad-
vuutagis. I Is'lieve too that the
people in this contest to a very
huge extent are going to leave
aside parte imlitics and vote simply in their own interest as liusiuess men and as reasonable men.
Is it not ipiite true that, although you have natural lieauty
and line scenery throughout tlie
beautiful Columbia valley, there is
slid something lucking? You will
agree with me that whal Is required
throughout the entire valley is development of its natural resources.
If we develop them along proper
lines we will Imve he fore long a
well settled district increasing the
wealth, prosperity and happiness
of the neighboring towns and of
the whole community.
As I have already slated, the.
ipie.lion before the electors in this
campaign ia a purely business
proposition, ll is not necessary
to go into lhe history of the negotiation, leading up to Ihe arrangement whereby we have secured
from the government of the United
States legislation on their part to
take off the duties nu all natural
products of the soil which, just as
soon as we have concurreiil legislation at Ottawa after this election
to grant similar privileges to the
fiiit.il Slate., We have the agreement before us so that we need
not In> coucetned with the negotiations leading up to it. The point
io, io it good or bad: will it benelit
us or hurt us. It might lie well
to point out that tnis policy of securing access to the markets of
the t'nited States f*r the natural
products of Canada has Wn
favored and approved by the lenders ot all parties for tlie pnst forty
years. When tho national policy
wns inaugurated by Sir .lohn A.
McDonald in 1N71I he placed on
the statue books then a standing
offer to the government of the
United States to admit their natural protects into Ihe Canadian
market free of duty just as soon
as they were willing lo give Ihe
same righto to Canada. That
■tamliug offer was maintained for
years. Tlie government of Sir
.lohn A. McDonald iu IS'.u appealed lo lhe people for support
on this identical question mill,
uftq* their return tu power, bent
representatives to Washington iu
an effort to guiu access to their
markets for the natural products
of Canada, As you know their
mission failed, I could ulso give
quotations from speeches by Sir
Charles Topper, Sir.lohn Thonip-
san and the Hon. (i. Iv Foster all
advocating in the most explicit
terms how desirable it was for this
country to secure just such an arrangement as we have today. It
seems to me therefore that tliia
fuel in itself, ihnl all parties iu
this country favored it, should bo
strong evidence lhal it will prove
lieiielicinl to Canada, The Liberal
piir'y in IS!i:i adopted Iteciprocily
in Natural products as a plunk iu
tlic'r platform niul, after going into powor in lH'.lli. sent representu-
livi'B to Wushingtoii lo try to secure it. They failed in the same
way as the representatives of previous Conservative governments
and Sir Wilfred I.aurier then declared Unit he would semi no more
representatives to Washington and
iliat any further advances in the
direction of obtaining such un arrangement would have to come
from the I'niled States. This has
actually come aboul. The present
negotiations were opened on the
suggestion of President Tuft. Ite
look the initiative. He sent representatives to Ottawa who dis-
cusst'd terms with Mr. Fielding
and Mr. Patterson and afterwards
further discussions look place in
Washington with the result that
we Imve this agreement, before us
for endorsement at the present
time.
I think 1 cuu safely say that llie
farmers of Camilla ure uii'iuiinous-
ly iu favor of this pact. If it will
prove beneficial lo the agriculturists in the rest of Canada it
cannot foil to be beneficial to the
ranchers uml agriculturists ill the
Windermere Valley. At lhe lower
end of tlie valley, iu the city ot
Fernie und other towns on the
Crows Nest, it is admitted by all
I lint great benefit will follow from
the adoption of this agreement
through the fact that coke will,
when it passes, Imve free entry
into the large markets of the
United Slates. This will certainly
menu inert-used development ill
tlie coal mining tonus und increased population. At the
present time there is only partial
settlement of the Windermere
valley. We look for this settlement to increase. Anyone can see
for himself the possililies in store
from a u agricultural standpoint.
Cereals of ull kinds und fruits can
lie raised. What will lie the most
inqiortuiit need when these ore
raised in abundance, us tliey will
be before long , W ill it not lie
larger markets V Even in our own
district I believe when this puct
goes into operation there will be a
larger market opened for the products of the soil ut your very doors
by the development I spoke of u
moment ago in the Crows Nest
Pass from the folic)' of admitting
Coke free into the ('nited States
market. That in itself will create
a large market. Hut. in addition
to that, the farmers all over Canada know, and what is true of them
will be true so far as the fanners
iu the Windermere Valley arc concerned, that there is a market of
nearly a hundred million people
across the line Where tliey can
send pnalucts and obtain good
prices us soon us this arrangement goes through. It is well
known thut in tho l.'nited States
with there numerous population
tliey are rapidly reaching the point
where they consume practically
all they themselves raise und they
mint therefore look elsewhere for
their supplies. Tho people of
Cnmida and the people of this district will have un opportunity to
lake advantage of Iheir needs in
this respect Even lit the present
time Inst year our exports to the
I'niled States amounted to one
hundred nnd twelve millions of
dollars. These exports had to
meet u tariff vail against them
averaging about forty two percent,
What will mir ex|*orts in natural
products amount towhen this tariff
is entirely removed V I nccd'nt
snv   lli.it   the prosperity of   lho
wlinh ii iit ry depends upon the
prosperity of the agriculturists nor
need I say thut tlie best interests
uf the business men of Goldeu will
be served Iiy un adoption uf u
policy whicli will assist ill opening
up and developing Hie U inder-
mere Vnlloy placing there a prosperous agricultural population
who will have a ready mnikcl for.
everything they ruise.
There is another side of lliis
question. We do nol grow iu this
province nearly enough mil und
products to supply our own needs.
We must therefore import it greal
many products from the oulsiih-
Tho things we import at the pie-
sent time in large quantities are
the things which the people consume, the necessaries ol life, tliey
are the articles which you tind on
the table three times a day.
Everyone knows thai lhe cost of
living in this country is very high
at the present time. This is
particularly true in this Province.
Why should we continue puyfucj
a duty on these necessaries of life':
We are not. in the same position
in Ihis Province ns in some others
where there is an aliundaiico ol
these things iiml u surplus for a
foreign market, limit r reciprocity, with the further duveloiimeiii
of the Piovii , wn can look forward lo the lime 1 hope when
Ihere will be nu abundance and
the condition of affairs ns tliey
exist now will lie relieved. Hut al
present we iniisl import lite tilings
which the people consume. 11 we
can import them free of duly it
follows thut their cost will be very
largely reduced. I fed confident
thut, as a result of this policy, the
cost of living in this province will
1*' largely r ductal, It is per-
fee-try plain that if we must
import we must pay just as much
more for these articles ns lhe
duly nmounls to and that is n considerable sum There is therefore
an opportunity in this election for
lhe people lo cast a vote iu their
own interest.
The policy of the Conservative
Party at the present time Ib to
opposp the Government in trying
lo get larger markets for the people
of Canada and relieving tho people
from part of the burden of luxation. They say tlmt we should
leave well enough alone l)o vou
not think thut a party, which has
lieen in opposition fortifteen years,
should have developed in that time
some policy that would be for tin-
people of 0011111111'* If they have
not doue so it must mean that the
Government have the right and
only policy. We occasionally
meet some people who ask are our
Manufacturers going tu be injur, d
and hove to stand against strung
American competition. So far as
this pact is concenn d it is simply
an arrangement with the United
States Government whereby the
people of Canada and United
States will trade on n free trade
basis iu all natural products of tin-
soil, the fisheries and the farm.
To bring about this arrangement
the American Government had lo
to cut down Iheir tariff to a much
lurger extent thiin the Government
of Canada so that the arrangement
iu this respect ns in many others
has been to Canada's advantage
The average Canadian tariff lias
been about twenty.live percent
while the American tariff is aboul
forty-live. So far ns Manufacturers are concerned they will still
retain the protection they already
enjoy except in the case of agricultural implements wheronslighl
reduction is made You will see
therefore that the government
have been careful to conserve the
large industrial interests of Canada. It is a little surprising in
view of this that some of tlie chief
opposition to this pact comes from
the manufacturers. They must believe that this arrangement will
prove so beneficial to the great
masses of Canada that they will
in the future demand further reductions in tlie tariff. Their opposition proves therefore tlmt Iluy
at all events believe the pact will
prove beneficial.
The fisheries in tins province is a
great industry. 1 have nnt yet heard
anyone say, not even Mr. Qoodeve in
his speeches, that the fisheries ol
llritish Columbia will not bo enormously benefited by tree access to tho
I'niled States market anil Until Dial
contention is        mode wo
can lake for granted
that then' will be enormous develop

Tin' reply vouchsafed lo Mr. P.

atalemciit coming Irom newspapers
thai in Un' past havo heralded Mr.
I1. i.iin,I as ii patriotic Canadian
anxious in uphold Canadian iusiiii-
lieiis and in lurthor tlie besi inter-
est- nl his adopted province, llritisli
Columhia. In lho past Mr. Lund
lias been an nctim Conservative

platlorms Ihroughout Kast Kootenay, n man whoso example was
limited as one to be followed by
electors generally. Now, lorsooth,
because ho sees good in tbc reciprocit) pail anil wil] not be bound Iiy

lold that as an American cittan lie

In its attempt lo belittle Ml

Amciig tlu* companies mentioned uie
tbe mis Staples Lumber company,
ibe Taylor Lumber company, tho
Crothcr Lumber company, the Stand-
aid I ilii-i company, Hie Yahk Lumber company, ami llie Leask and
Johnson Lumber company. Now ol
these companies, Ibc only me, Hie
owners ol which, are believed to lie
opposed to the reciprocity pact, is
Unit nl ibe litis similes Lumber
compnl.y, Which, according In Hie
Clnodcve orgou, is a purely American
cr.ncom nnd should have no say
in Die matter. We do not bobT to
ihis view, believing Unit if Amcri-
i-iins come into Canada, invest their
money ami become citizens, they
In.uld have tbe right nnd privilege
of expressing their views ami voline,
as Ihey see lil. The principal
shareholders in lite other lumber
companies mentioned include well
known Liberals anil Conservatives,
many ol Hie former ol whom are
openly and zealously supporting Hie
reciprocity pact. These are (acts
thai s-lioitlil be kepi in mind.
In a report ol a mooting held by
Mr. Cloodcve ut Port Steele, appealing lu Ibe Cranbrook Prospector, II
is stated Unit Ur. Hugh Wattl was
li.ld by Judge Hyatl "Unit aiming
his other peculiarities he (Ur. Watt)
had become a traitor." Iu fairness to .ludge Ityan, the Herald
wishes to state tlmt so far as it can
learn, Irom men who wero in Hie
audience, Ibc judge mode no such infamous charge againsl the doctor.
The Incident, so fur as wc could
loam, was much us follows! Ur.
Watt had been heckling the speaker,
Judge Ryan, who, at last turned upon him ami asked lilm it he in-
Bondcil lo add to his other peculiarities Unit ol becoming a traitor? An entirely different thing tu
branding un obi nnd respected citizen a "traitor." Wo all know thai
in the heat of elect ion campaigns
things ure suid 1 hut it woild lie
lai belter In leave unsaid, hut il is
adding      monstrously t"    the
to publish       as       a
statcmcnl id laet, a question
thrown out in the heat ol debute
ICveryono who knows Judge Ityan
will iibsulve him ol this gross Impropriety of making such a charge
against u man who is known all
over the province as one of the
most out and out Britishers in U.
('., loyal to his heart's core- Dr.
Hugh Wall is au old resident in this
province, a niun wlio has served in
Ibe provlnco in tho legislature in
h\-gone years, and a man who has
earned Ibe sincere respect and es
iiiein of everybody wlm has come in
contact wilh hlm. Tlie mere suggestion nl the possibility ol Dr. Walt
becoming a traitor to his country,
is an insult to a man ol his stamp,
hut to declare that he wns branded
as a "traitor" by a speaker at Hie
(liiodeve meeting, is absolutely in
iiuieeivable and, we believe, equally
Incredible.
What Railroad
Accidents Cost
f Although the railroud couipuuiet
take every possible precaution tt
avoid wrecks, the newspapers constantly report more ur leas aeriout
accidents, row of us realize whin
>i money loss almost every one ol
these entails. Some tinurcs ou tht
wreck of the firewater Express oi.
the Harlem division of the New
York Central and Hudson Rivel
'ttuilroad, published in a recent
number of the Railway Employees'
Magazine and Journal, prove thai
any expense for prevention it-
eionomy.
That wreck occurred nearWood-
liiwn, February Kith, 11107. Without including damages to equipment, loss owing to delayed traffic,
and other tiling., the dumagi
claims and other expenses paii
and in process of settlement cosl
the road $1,214,1X10. Of Ibis sun
$lif,',l,0OU was paiil in claims, and
tlie balance was for lawyers' feel,
fees to agents who settled claims
oat of court, physicians', investigators und experts, and for trial
suits.
The largest amount paid for a
single death win $75,000; the
smallest $5,000. The average was
$l:i,:W I. Eighteen of the twenty-
two victims were women, eleven of
them unmarried, which reduced
materially the damages the company had to pay, though leveral of
the single women were bread-win-
tiers.
Among the injured, the highest
damages uwanled were $82,500 to
a young woman whole left leg was
amputated. This verdict has been
appealed by the company. Kettle,
menls for injuries have ranged
from $1,000 upward.

No wonder, therefore," snys llie
" UtHBobo.il," " if tlio problem bus
been considered how the stamp
:onld be abolished altogetherwitl -
out prejudice to the interesls of
the post oliioe. l'riiposals of this
character havo not been wanting,
us for instance in Bavaria, since
February 1st, 1910, large consignments are simply stamped with a
postmark nt the post office, llie
operation being curried out by
machinery. In this wuy the post
office luiB saved the expense fur
paper nnd the printing costs for
ten million stumps, while the business world bus economized time
and money, for affixing stamps to
one tliousnnd letters requires
about an hour and a half of time.
This mi'tliiid'nf treatment, while
fairly satisfactory, is still primitive. We can easily Imagine n
much better system worked out
somewhat along the lines of n gns
or water meter, the letter being
simply placed in a machine, and
stamped with u postmark which
serves at the same time ns receipt
for the postage nnd ns reeunl of
the date. etc. The machine would
be insiiected periodically by the
nnst office iu just the snine wuy as
Ihe consumer's gns or water meter
is inspected, and his bill would lie
paid as usual."

A FRUIT GROWER'S VIEW
Sir. Robert Luwson, n well
known fruit grower of Grand
Forks, who Biippiirtid Martin
Burrell in the election of WON, is
out with a strong letter-in the Kun
of that town, showing why lie, us u
fruit grower nnd Conservative,
will, ou this occasion vote for the
Liberal standard bearer. Mr. Law-
son says in pari :-.-
"Now. reciprocity is the only
issue before the people iu this
election, und I might want ever so
budly to vote for Ibe Conservative
candidate, but I can't do it and Buy
I want reciprocity, when it is the
only issue before the publie. Why
could we not have a chance to say
yes or no on reciprocity independent of parly politics? Oh, no:
that would bo giving the people
too much liberty ul the polls. I
am sure if the majority of people
said they wanted reciprocity, bow
could .Mr Borden refuse to grant
it. supposing the Laurier govern-
inent was defeated.
"Mr. Burrell thinks he has n
strong talking point against reciprocity in regard to the fruit industry. I suppose 1 can lie classed
among the largest individual fruil
growers in British Columbia. I f
I can't grow fruit and compete
with my neighbors across the line.
I will do something else: and I
am not a Canadian of much use if
I am not willing to try and compete with him. Un tho other hand
would it not be selfish of me to
want to see conditions reliiineil
whereby I can take advantage of
my fellow producer lo the extent
of 20 cents per box on apples''
But this argument does not hold
good, for we get lietter prices for
our fruit in foreign markets than
we get in our home market. In
the outside market we compete
with the worlil; in thu home market we am protected to the extent
of 20 cents per box. That is a nice
way to use our homo consumers !
If Canada was nn importer of
natural products we would benefit
the producer of natural products
hy charging a duty on thu iinpor
tntions of the same, lo the disadvantage of our consumers. Now.
when we are exporters of natural
products, is it nnt toouradvantage
to have all barriers removed that
tend to limit our markets''
"If you want to do away with
some nf the conditions that help
to wake millionaires at the ex-
pense of the producer, vote for
reciprocity.
"If you want to let the special
interesls know that thu people undoing a little more of their own
thinking, vote for reciprocity.
"If you want to lei the government know that you want to do
away with special privileges, vote
for reciprocity.
"If you don't want to encourage
selfish principles, vole for reei
procity.
"If you want free access to the
liest markets in tho world, vote for
reciprocity, mid let the interesls
know that we nre at the parting of
the ways— I mean at the purling
of Ihe ways lietween the interests'
rule and the rule of the -icoplc.
It does not make any difference to
Canadians what President 'lull
means by the parting of thu ways,
or what Mr. Burrell thinks lie
means. I will just prophecy thut
the poople are going to have reciprocity.
Robebt Lawsiix."

TIh'ii iu addition to all this there
lus been a general leveHiuf* of the
tariffs so that tire American people
have hrouglit down their tariff to
such an extent that It will equalize
with ours and we cannot fail to get
advantage from that.
Last year we bought from the
people of the United States two
hundred and twenty-three million
dollars worth of goods. They bought
from us one hundred and twelve million dollars worth. What will be
tlie effect when the Americans have
brought their tariffs down to equalize
ours as they are doing by this pact?
f believe that in twelve months after
this goes through the balance of
trade will be in favor of Canada instead of the United States. In other words we will sell to them more
than we buy from ihem at the
present time. This is the position
of affairs today. Our Conservative
friends would like us to believe that
they have been opposed to it for
a long time. That is not true.
Their opposition arose only when
this anaugement was announced and,
in order .to oppose it,
they bad, as I have already stated, been compelled to oppose the policy ol all their past
leaders from Sir John A. McDonald
lu Sir -lohn Thompson.
Or. King here read extracts from
the speeches of Sir .lohn A. McDonald, Sir Charles Tupper and Sir
■lohn Thompson to prove what h*.
saitl that they always favored tuch
an arrangement so that it would be
perfectly clear to any Conservative
that if they opposed this part they
were opposing their old leaders. He
then went on to say: "Row, gentlemen, when Mr Goodeve or any other
IY user vat ive tells us that 1879 was
t lie last t ime the Conservat i ves

United States they are not present-

Further, in-regard to this arrangement, I believe the people of Canada
with their large area of virgin sol
will be .ilile to produce cheaper than
the Americans and the American
market will therefore In* of great

The Cranbrook Trading Co.
h- is running now us a Conservative
but in favor of reciprocity with tlm
United* States. We also iiml that
Mr. Lloyd Harris, ;i Canadian manufacturer of agricultural machinery,
who represented Braiitft.nl as a Liberal, was tunicil th wn hy the farmers ot his own constituency and lie
is not now a candidate. Tho farmers would not Imve him as their
candidate sn long as he opposed a
measure which they realize fs of tin*
greatest possible advantage to them
We also (ind Hint the lumber interests in tliis country arc supporting
the pact, as I already pointed out,
a.s tbe tariff is giving lliem a more
equal arrangement with the Inited
Slates people. Further, very prominent Conservatives throughout
t'anatla and in our own district have
stated that they will vote in its
favor. The mining industry also it.
supporting the pact feeling that tlie
government have done a great deal
t getting coke on tin* free list and
also believing lhal, if ii goes
through, the governments (,f both
countries will lie able to get together
ami obtain from lhe United Stales
Ibc removal of italics on lead anil
/inc ores so very much required hy
thi milling Industries in this province. It has also been
pointed out anil I think
very fairly that, if this arrangement goes through uml brings
ptosjrerity to our fanners, they will
not only have a bigger market hut
they will ntso ohtuiu increased value
for their land. It is a well known
fact that along tlie border there is a
very great difference in land values.
The land on the north side of the
line is not as valuable as the land
or the south, due to the fact that
the farmer on tlie south side of
the line has a larger market for his
pioducts and can secure better prices
for what he can produce and his
Ii.ikI is therefore more valuable. 1
noticed this particularly in Dm State
of Maine and the province of New
Drunswick recently. Down tliere
New Brunswick fanners have lift
their farms in large numbers and
gone over to Maine to pir,,w potatoes for the Hoston market he-
cause the old duty on potatoes prohibited them from shipping Ihem
across the line. Tbe moment farmers in that district uii.l-.-rt-.mk to
grow a product suitable to their
land they were refused a market on
account of the prohibitive duty.
There is no question tbat these fanners will.support reciprocity.
It is true that we have a good
trade with England for many of the
products of the soil. There is nothing to interfere with our still trailing there. Is there not an advantage in having another market? II you
have an article to sell in this town
would you nol rather see three or
four buyers for the one article than
one buyer? What would be your
position? It ynn have only one
buyer he coild make his own terms
with you bui with three or four buyers you can take the ||>st price.
This is straight business, nothing
else. No question of loyalty or annexation cttnes in at all. It is uu
insult to suggest it. It is a
straight business proposition, nothing more or nothing less. By this
arrangement we will have another
customer fot our goods. Who wil
say that another market will not he
.,1 advantage to Utl
Mow if we get  IncnftNd farm pro-,
dttCtlon we will alio have an increase
ia our inai.ufactures The farmer
is the man building up the country.
When he gels his money after his
crop is gold be immediately spends
it for what his familv ami himself
may require in new machinery ami
ma (.lilac to red goods. This is where
the manufacturers are helped. The
inom-1 he speiuls goes to Ihc merchants, lumbermen ami manufacturers. We will also get un increased
population That was their experi.
enec down in tbe Maritime Provinces
when a similar treaty was ir. force
between Canada and the I nited
States between 1854 and 1866. We
realize in this province that increased population is absolutely necessary
if we are going to develop these val-
trys and surely we can have that
prosperous com'ition without danger
nf being aluulm, by the United
States. 1 have discussed this question of loyalty a great many times
within the last few days. It is nothing more or less than n political cry
raised by political leaders to attract attention away from tbc great
benefits nf this agreement and the
public are not taking any stock in it.
1 was glad to see that the British
Canadians in this country take absolutely no stock in this cry. I believe, ladles and gentlemen, that the
adoption if reciprocity will bring an
enormous benefit tb Canada, As I
nave already stated it Is the only Issue in this campaign* The government have referred this question to
tbc people before the end of tbe lists! term. The situation today practical!)- amounts to this, the Liberal
government have offered to place on
the statute books ol Canada a reciprocit*/ arrangement wllh the Cnlted
States. The United States have already passed the necessary legislation. Ttm Conservatives In tho
house refused to allow the Canadian
pailiament to pass the neorssary leg
islation on their part. 1'nuYr tb

THE BRITISH BORN
(Stratford, Ont., Beacon)
It appears that thousands of
copies of an auti-rBoiprooity pamphlet are being sunt out by the
British Canadian branch ol' tlu-
Auti-reoiprooity league, in whicli
oti*ess in laid upon the necessity o£
preserving llritish uonuectiou,
and lliis is lo hf done l>y voting
for Mr. li. L. Borden und against
roeiprooity.
There ia n story told about Mr.
Bordens' visit to Lloyd minster,
whicli is largely settled by people
from thu old country, it having
been tho oentro of tho Famous
I ia rr colony sn nn1 years ago. Iu
tho course of his* speech there
Mi'.ti. U. Porloy quoted Sir John
Mucdnnnld'sdeclarntiou of 18.)] i
•\\ liritisli Bilbjuul I wns bornj n
llritish subject I will die."
T.i this asturdy British Canadian n-pliftl :
"That's nil right. I liavualways
understood thai a man's birth was
looked after iiy Ids father and
mother and ihat nt his death ho
w.is looked aftor by his children.
What I want is a policy which wil]
look after mo botween the cradlo
and iln* grave mid give mo a chance
to hv.*. That is Mm* duty of a
s'alosiiiait. and I am going to voto
for the (-statesman who will make
il easier fur mo between the cradle
and the grave."
Tlmt will 1«. thesoutimenl of llm
majority ni lho British horn in
Canada if they get a right viowoii
things. Their birth has been
looked after properly which has
made it possible for them to bo
here and they do not need to
worry aboul their death, They
need a policy which will mnke it
easior for them before they die,
and that is why they should vote
for Laurier who has done sip njuch
for British connection.
tnsistenco upon ilu- wght to tax
British pi.nis did not emanate
from Laurier,and when tho people who did insist upon itwere told
that it endangered British connection the reply was: "Ho much
tho worse for British connection."
Laurier introduced thoprinciph
of tariff .concession to Britain in
IK*;)7, limiting it possible to buy
British goods elieajwr in Canada
und he has inertosed thai preference since find shown by his actions that he believes Hint true ini-
periul unity cannot   be  brought
shall lax tho food of tlio British
workinguiau, Mon who were born
iu Britain know how repugnant
that idea is there, und the majority
of them will probably come to
know beiore the present campaign
is closed how much value tu place
upon the appeals ofCanadian'Cou-
sorvatixes to the llritish born.
