(Continued in Friday', i»wo)
One oi the lurgeal uudiiucei ever
gathered together in Ihii cily greeted
Sir Charltt iliblicrl Tupper on Friday
evening lull to list ul) to Ins address
upon the Heciprocity iamc and they
were well repuid for their attendance
by the lino infill and convincing
•peach to which they liitened.

Charles Hibbert Tupper rose lo ipeak
after having been introduced by Mr.

self by the cliuiriiiun and voiced bis
appreciation of the manner in which
the local aasociation had naked him in
come over. In times past be had ventured lo tui.e iisue with his party on
numerous mutters, in lacl be thought
il would be poor policy on the pari oi
any parte lo narrow itself down to ex
eluding free thought ev.n by its own
members, but in spite of this (ucl bv I
bud receiveil un invitation to cine to
Norlli Vancouver without being asked
hia poiition on Reciprocity ami i,o
limitation had born placed on him in
any way. Later on in the evening lie
said as a ma Iter of fuel he would nol
have accepted uu invitation to spe.ik
on tire subject under any other cii-
cuinstuneci because he wu. out of politic
III opening lite subject he propoicd
to discuss thc propoicd Heciprocity
Treaty not as a trade issue or in iliuii as to llie several issues, ilicludie;
wli.-.ii. lumber, pulp wood, fruit ami
articles of manufacture. At fiisi
thought this may be Considered extraordinary. Many have n desire lo gel
rich but the ipoaLor hud un abiding that line atato of huckstering
would paaa. It is nol ull we should
set our In.ills to. II that feeling had
predominated in yvara pint be ucclar-
od there would be no Vancouver and
no future would huve In en considered.
He intended lo dsicuss the proposed
issue from a national point of view.

The hiuny liundruli who hcurd   the
speech upon the reciprocity issue, delivered in this cily on Friday evening

listened to a speech that will  rank ai
one ol the strongest uud nuist   able

Canada   upon   ibis   momentoue i|Uei

ipeukur were   ut all tiniea moderate,
the general tenor of tbe speech   waa
ol such a masterful ebuructcr that the
strength   of   the  whole  wus   but   enhanced by the utter ubsence of extra-
vagtint    lungitiige.   The   alieukcr   left
no uncertainty in  the miuda   of   his
Im.ii en.   with   reference to tho   viewpoint from which he auiiroaclied   tho
subject   in blind.     He   stated in line
i|itn mill language t In.t he viewed with
suspicion   uuy   upproach    from    tbe
United eitutes looking to closer commercial illation! with Canada.   Having beon lor many years u member ol

countries for an extended period   so

thut such uu     " ■ in nt is  incompatible   from   the   Canadian   viewpoint,
with     sound    principles    of    statesmanship.
The' ipeecb was intensely Canadian
and thoroughly imperialist ie Irom Ihe
introduction to the splendid peroration. The intense interest wilh which

Tbs ipeech never lor a moment developed even a euggestiun of the
grandiloquent, but il wai eloquent iu
the Irueit aud molt forceful sens, inasmuch ai it unmiitukeulily carried
conviction to Jiii bearers, confirming
thote who were already in harmony
