Tth the subject o( reciprocity, outlining the general, history ol I 'un idhn
politics from 1666 onward*. He ,..■
lerred to tho accusation levied aga.nst

changed their policy. Mr. liuvoy
clearly showed that although lie Conservatives may have boon in favor ol
reciprocity in the pait, the pjliiiril
conditions have chunged uud il.n necessarily meant chango ol policy.
The feature ol the evening wm un
doubtodly the speech ol Mr. Vukulski,
who is a well known exponent ol Ilie
sinister side ol reciprocity. His re-
murks wero punctuated with lr*i|Uunl
outbursts ol applause.
He Irealed reciprocity Irom the
Htiimlpuiiit ol Ihe American, and very
plainly showed that it was the great
natural resource* of Cauada tbat the
American was alter.
Soventoon years ago, and lor n period ol twelve years, the spenker was
concurnod with tbe milling interests iu
Minneapolis, and speaking Irom this
eiperience, Mr. Makolaki declared, that
it was impossible lor tbe I'uiinl
Slates to put llouf upon tbe Europu-
nu market comparable with the Canadian article, without purchnting certain quantities nl "No. 1 Northern,"
' |o harden up Iheir own suit product.
li.1 sjieaker clearly showed tltut the
reciprocity pact as u whole was un
attempt on the part ol tbe I mini
Sliiles to steal awuy I'aunoYs mil
uml resources.
During Mr. Makolski's speech much
merriment was caused liy nn interrupter who persisted in unnouncjng his
intention to vote lor reciprocity. Lai-
lor he was thoughtless enough lo »*k
| the speaker lor Iho dolinilion ol a lool
Needless to say, the reply was, "Ono
who will vote lor reciprocity."
The third speaker was Mr. W. .1.
Ilaird, who prclaocd bis remarks by
saying that be was more nl home in
Iho committee mum than on the platform. Despite this declaration, however, Mr. Baird dc-all wilh ths various
phsse* of the political campaign and
made it quite evident to bis listeners,
that it wus in the best interests ol
Canada lo reject reciprocity.

At tbis morning's sossion of the
Polio* l.'ourt, Frank Augustiu* was
charged with having mid intoxicating
liquor without a license at hi* premises, Flat Iron Block, Lonsdale avenue.

ami some officer* raided tb* defend-
set's promise* sud lound, In tha luck

of beer and a large barrel of wine.
Mr. Head appeared for tlio prosecution sud Mr, Bobjnson for tbt' defence.
Tbe Chief alto slated lhat on September 10th, be saw ten cases of beer
boing taken np Lonsdale tvenuo, and
instructed Constable Shannon to watch
their progress. Tbey wore taken into
tbo Flat Iron Block. Tbo constable
testified to tbis effect.
Tbe defendant stated tbat tbo liquor
did not ill belong to bim. Tbe greater
portion of it .belonged tn a friend
named Qalluccl wbo boi bought it for
celebrations—" to christen tho baby
Evidence wu given by (lallucei and
by tb* person from whom be bought
tbo esses of liquor. Questioned concerning tbo luby, be said tbat be
would bave it christened a* soon as
tbo liquor was restored to bim.
Mr. Bead indicated tbat the nature
of the defonco wu unsatisfactory. He
disputed Mr. Bobinson's suggestion
tbat celebrations on such a scale were
perfectly natural. Ho reminded tbo

Final Word of Conservative Leader Pefore
the Elections— Canadians Appealed to
Irrespective of Party—Not a Question of
Marltets But of Canada's National Destiny
The following straightforward and
patriotic address wus issued today to
his follow-citisoiis throughout Cansdii
by Mr. B. L. Bunion, B.C., loader of
tbe Conservative parly:
To tbo Poople of Canada: -As this
campaign closes and tho solemn duty
confronts us of deciding for nil time
tho most momentous question ever sub-
mlttod to the Canadian electoral'*, I
doclare witb |iorfoct sincerity te my
fellow i-uiiiiir> ni.'ii that tlio outlook is
full of hope. The keen attention
which tho people have given to tho
discussion of this question 1ms made
tbe few weeks of tbe campaign iniiro
revealing than mouths of ordinary debate
"Throughout this Dominion the
electorate now underttiud tbey ire
culled upon to ilelcrmiuo not a mere
question of markets, but the future destiny of Cauada, perhaps the Empire.
"Keen from the economic side, the
Bociproclty compict is but i step in s
greater process. Ou cither side of the
boundary line its advocates realize per-
fectly that iu itt filial outcome this
treaty un.loulitu.lly means the cummer-
cial and fiscal union. The chief magistrate of our powerful neighbor on the
south hu warned us in languuge of
uiimistakeablo import that the euusuni-
maiion of this treaty will forever pre
vent the consolidation of our Empire.
Must Make Our Choice
"Wilb profound insight ami clear
vision be list made the memorable declaration tbat if Canada accepts this
compact she can never become a part
of thit great Imperial commercial bund
which, as he anticipates, will roach
from Englsml around the world lo
England again. Wo must, make our
•koicu between Reciprocity with Ihe
Empire and Bcciprocity witb the United
states. And let us never forget thul
I'mult Ciunot become liscilly and
. iiiiuiiei.'iiilly t part of the United
Slates ind remain politically a pari —
an important part—of Ihe British
"(.'in there be my doubt Ih.-it this
compict will result in prematurely dis-
sipttiug those abounding resources
which we bold not alone fur our own
use and prolll, but in trust for those
who ire to succeed ust Arc wo not
bound in honor lo trtusuiit free uml
uuimpiircd lu our ileicendanlu the
marvellous heritage our forefathers won
aud held iu the fuce uf ililhVulliot and
obstacles today unknown! Will Ihe
pcoplo of i'lunula willingly decree thai
so splendid an inheritance shall puss
min othor bauds tban tbeir own!
Tbrsit of Uuitsd States.
"Tbe relations created by tbit compact will increase Ihrccrold Ibe power
of tbe United States over our commercial destinies. Less than three
yeart Igo, by tbo threat of prohibitory
duties, tbey forced uur government to
•Iter our tariff. If wc accept thit
compact, wc must inticipael a renewal
of th/) pressure.   Where is our guaran
tee that tho renewed pressure will tie
met in any firmer fashion tban beforel
Wo recognize our constant duty to
maintain friendly relations with tho
grout neighboring nation; but I nsk you
to belie.' that such relations cau best
llO assure,I, if WO preserve in fullest
men   llle OUT pie .'Hi  fltCll independence
sud autonomy.
"Above ell, we do not forget that tbo
momentous choice we must make is
for all time. If the tariffs of Ihe two
countries are interlocked by this treaty,
bo assured that a stronger parly
always will curry the key.
Ftitb la Our Own Country.
"I believe thit we iro standing today at tbo parting of the ways. This
compact, made iu socrer and without
mandito, points indeed to t new path.
Wc must decide whether the spirit of
Caiiadiuiiism or of contiuciitalisin ahtll
prevail on the northern half of tbis
continent. Canada is tbo mistress of
her destiny. She commands both the
Atlantic ami Pacific; she holds tho
highways of Ibe world. Oulside of the
United Kingdom, she it tho most important unit of tbo whole Hrilish
"With rami.In's youthful vitality]
her rapidly increasing population, Ihu
marvellous material resources, her
spirit of hopefulness ami energy, she
cun place herself in a comparatively
brief period in tbo highest position
within this mighty ompire. Tbis is the
path upon which we have proceeded
this is Ibe path from which wo tre
asked lo depart.
"That spirit is ouo of faith in our
country, our institutions and ourselves.
It is inspired by imperishable merits of
a past full of splendid achievements; >t
is crowned by the bighctt and most
confident hope of a future splendor
which we can but dimly realize. It
dwells equally in tbo sons of British
pioneers and loyalist! ami in those
Canadians of French descent, to whose
ancestors we owe a deep debt of gratitude for the loyal valor which preserved I'amiila to Ihe British I'rown.
Abov* AU Pirtlet.
"This .(ii. linn it above all parties
ami ull individuals. I appeal to Liberals as well u Conservatives and I
speak lo Ihem not as e party leader,
but as a Canadiau citizen whose hopes
arc bounl wilb Ihe hope of this

ull who hope for her future, I muke un
curliest and sincere appctl to rise
ubove all parties, to take heed of the
higher aonsiileritions and to dotcrmiuo
their course with a sense of Ibe enduring i.'..ults of tbeir decision. I beg
Ihem to cast a soberly considered nod

our heritage: for the maintenance of

to do in tbe buement of tbo City Hall,,

Thero trose another "breeze" respecting tht lut mentioned propoaed
bylaw. Aldaxmaa Dick demanded mor* jtumtje*,
part I. alms concerning the property ami
Iho reasons for purchasing it.-
Alderman Henderson said that those
reasons bad been fully oiprcsted by
Ihe people wbo had framed the bylaw.
Alderman Dick disputed tbit, liking
•gtin lhat tbey should inform bim ex
telly whit the ground wu te be used
for. Let Ihem lei) Ihe people whit Ihey
were voting on. Personally, he had
not tbe slightest idea.
Alderman Henderson assured Alderman Dick thit before the citizens were
called upon to vote tbey would be possessed of all the necessary Information.
Alderman Dick protested that hi*
question had not been answered, tnd
the Mayor intimated tbat be* bid no
power to compel tlie Council to
answer Alderman Dick's questions.
Upon the adoption being twice read,
Alderman Dick exclaimed: "No, absolutely nol" in eacb instance.
Two more proposed bylaws were then

Hi.ni-li.ii ii»  A Mini 11» 'Maiii:-
One of Ihe moil aaloundlng features
of the proposed Reciprocity pact, from
a Canadian point of view, la tha fact
thai the agreement waa prepared ei-
, lusiv. h  by a commlaslon of   United
Htatea experts, men    wbo   were    Ihe
. I. v, i,.si producl of the great unlver-
tlllei of that country, men who were
the most capable lhat could lie found
upon., matter! pertaining- to lb*'tariff,
and  lliul  ihe mtmWip'of that commission devoled themtelvei, for a term
of two yeurs, to Ihe exclusive study of
the problem wilh a view to   a   Reciprocity   treaty   with Canada.     They
lal.nilt.uily     gulhired   an     immenie
amount of <|ata. with reference to the
'molt   minute   detail!   of  the  matlir,
from  United    Statu    and    Canadian
hi,lines alike.   Thii maaa of detail wat
•yslemullied,  printed  and bound.    It
waa with such a fund of Information
in the hand! of each member of lhat
.-.iiniiilasion lhat tbe United Statea e<
pertl carefully framed up   the   Reciprocity agreement.   On the other band.
Ihe Canadian  repretentallvet lml  no
alatiillci, no Information even    wilb
reference to the Canadian side of lbs
proposition, while Ihe   United   Hiates
knew all aboul both, lo Ibe laat detail.
The Canadian repretentalivei took no
time to .-.insider Ibe agreement,    but
with most precipitate and Inexcusable
haate, accepted the agreement lull at
It had been prepired by tbe   United
Ntui.-s  efperli,  und  essayed  ta Irrevocably commit Canada to tbe scheme,
Un ii und there, by affixing tbeir official
algnaturea to the document.   Sucb a
complete abrogation of Ibe most *le-
menlury business principle! ll of Itielf
uunl, i.i.I to utterly condemn Ihe pact.
Such a puerile aurrender of the limit
ordinary prectpti of lound commircla,
practice would be quite Insensate upon
the pari of anyone, In the management
even of private Intereali. but Hi folly
is infinitely increaltd when luch con
