Conwrvfttive Candidate'i Meeting-Reciprocity Pact Arraigned—Canada Should Keep
Natural Resources for Own Benefit— Can-
m   ada Part ot Empire In Peace and In War.
Tailing arguments against the rem-
procity agreement were piled ■ up ut
the meeting ip Larson'* pavilion nn
Wednesday eveuing when Mr. II. II.
Stevens made his initial bnw lo lanil
electors and in the course nf a strong
anil eloquent address submitted 'tis
argument against reciprocity, dealing
with it in this instance frnm the standpoint of the producer and the manufacturer..
Mr. S. D. Schultx, chairman of tpp
L'nnservativ e campaign committee,
ocupied the chair and introduced as
the first speaker Mr. 0. M. Wnodworth
of Vancouver.
Mr. Wooilwortlt began by declaring
tbat the issue now before tbe Canadian
people was one of the greatest issues
thst bad appeared during the past 80
or 80 years. There were many questions which might l»e dealt witb such
ss Indian reserves, better terms /or
H. 0., the right nf the province to administer ita own lands, tbe improvement
of Burrard Inlet as a harbor, in each
of which the position of Mr. Borden
ui leader of the Cousorvstivo .putty
wu iu favorable contrast witb tbat of
tho Liberal party. Hcciprocily, how
ever, was tbe great iuue. He waa
against reciprocity first ai a matter of
sentiment. Discussing the issue from
this standpoint ho quoted tbo epitaph
upon the monument of Joseph How*
si Halifax, t« the memorable words of
Sir .liilm A. McDonald during bis laat
campaign "A British subject I wu
born and a British subject I will dje"
and also made elective use of tbe
United Empiru Loyalist* sml the war of
< 1(18. Tbs speaker cited the fact that
Canada bad spent hundred* of million*
of dollars nn line* of communication
throughout tbe Dominion and this would
bo of little use were reciprocity to be
inaugurated thus diverting traffic to
other routes. In all such bargains u
this proposed pact, the larger party
controls ths smaller, the greater dom
inatcs the lesser This is precisely
what tbe United States expect to do
if they can secure reciprocity. In
support nf this position tho speak "r
read ouotation* from l'rcsidct't Tall.
' Champ Clark, Senator McCall and
likewise extract* from leading United
States journals all showing that iu tbsir
estimation reciprocity meant that the
United State* would dominate Ibe situation, make use of Canada for their
own benefit and ultimately to anex Ibe
country to the States. Sucb wu the
effect of tbe pact tbat Sir Wilfrid
i Uuri*r would make but Canada would
' reply on September 81st that we nf
today are u loyal as woro our forefather* and will have none of tbo pact.
Turning to it* economical phases Mr.
Woodwortb contruted the doubtful
value of tbe United States marlt.it fur
Canadian products witb tbe great lime-
fits offered by tbe British market. He
pointsd out that under present conditions British c.p'tal »s* flowing lot)
Canada at tbe rate nf tltOM"Mn per
year and reciprocity weald cut nl this
most nscessary assistance. Hs further
dsalt with tbe pact ia it* bearing
upon flab and lumber, showing It*
harmful poasibilitiei with referoncs to
British Columbia and closed wltb tie
declaration that reciprocity was neither
good sentiment nor good business u
MfJ.Jf Canada aod richly deserved the l'
JKtloa witb wbich.lt would meet at
'•     tbs hand* of the Canadian clectoralo.
afterward but ho held that those prices
wero due to the fact that lb* Crimean
war wt) tbt U. S. civil war w*g*d
during that period and were not atlri-
billable tQ the treaty Itself,   At that
limo reciprocity wu a good thing fnr
Canada, because we had nn hnmc mar
ket nnd the Hril vli iiiuiket WW inu,cos-
•title tp us, but conditions have  been
revolutionized   since tbat time,    tb*
very opposite being nuw tbe cuo.  Iu
the abrogation nf that old treaty tbo
object of tb* United States had been
to coerce   Canada   Intn   annexation.
After the abrogation  tbey  expected
to see Canada go to   pieces,  beciin
dismembered and by force of circumstances become their property.  For
tunately fnr ber, Canada bad al tbo
time a galaxy of very able men who,
led hy Wir John  A. McDonald, conceived apd carried out tbo sebems  of
Confederation which was the first clip
in the upbuilding of Canada and tbe
expectations of the States wors ditup
pointed.   Hand in hand with this wo.il
commercial development   wbicb   had
proceeded steadily until tbe present
Ovor (600,000,000 had been spent in
our railways and canals, great systems
nf inter-provincial communication had
boon built up, un   immense   Internal
trado bad been built up and asked tb*
speaker, "Are we to throw all Ibis to
the wind* just when we sre about to
reap the real benefits thereof I" Tbat
j* wbat reciprocity would do, but tie
put wu doomed.    Bsferring to an
address mads tb* previous evening by
Mr. Bcnklcr the Liberal candilat*, Mr.
Stsvsu declared that it WU chars:
tori zed, by paucity of argument   aud
consisted mostly of broad, unsupported
statements sucb u any ons might easily
utter.   He could nnt   so himself how
the statement* made were to bo reconciled, namely,  that reciprocity would
mean lower prices for the consumer
and higher prices for tbs producr ot
tbe same time.   A big delegation   of
farmers   from the prairit provinces
bad  waited  on  Sir Wilfrid  Uurier,
uking for reciprocity In machinery,
shelf hardware aud leather goods and
bo bad replied by giving something
clss, namely reciprocity nn foodstuffs
■ <
Mr. Stevens on arising tn address
the audience, wu greeted wltb prolong
ed applause. After a preface contain
lag well chosen remarks complimentary
to North Vancouvtr he entered upon
bis main 'object by stating that hav
iug dealt witb reciprocity on Mow'-iy
night from tho standpoint of the ■'»*
turner, he proposed tp appro nli it
upon thl* occasion from the slnnnuoini
of tbt producer and tbt manufacturer
He referred ta the policy of the Conservative potty it outined by Mr, B.
L. Borden aad declared that. If wtt
sn excellent platform and positive in

Proceeding tn discuss tbis form nf
reciprocity Mr. Btevsus first referred
to wheat. It wu said that higher
prices for wheat would result, yst he
read from market reports showing
that wheat is uow and usually is three
or four cents higher la Winnipeg than
in Chicagn. It Is true that tbe big
mills nf. tbe States pay more fnr No,
I hard at times, because tbey absolu-
lely must have that wheat whatever
the pries. If, however, tbs amount of
No. 1 bard imported by tbe States ex
' ceded the demand tbea tht pi i. s would
at ouce bs lowered and further, tbe
surplus would be cent to foreign im-r
kets to compete with wheat shipped
from Canada direct. Even If there
were no effect on prices, the exportation
pt our wheat tt tbe States to bs milled
would meau Ibst thoy would have the.
advantage nf Ibe by product* sucb a>
bran and abort wbicb are al present
three nr four «eul* cheaper In Canada
than la tbt Btetes. Hence If wheal is
sbippsd away by products must be
bought back witb duty added. With
rsferencc to cattle. Cattle on th*
hoof are higher in pries in tho States
it is true, but why f Simply because
tbey are able In tbeir large establish
meuls lo slaughter calllc in tremeu

Canada, owing to our lack of these fa
cilitiee all we can get from ths rattle

is tbat cattle nn tbe hoof arc worth

After a forceful reference to tbt
water power assets of tlm Dominion
tbe speaker passed on to diicuss tht
transportation problem. This is the
most valuabls uiot iu tbo possession
of Vancouver and tbo lower majnlind

The Democratic party captured tbt
United States congress at tho poll*
lut year by being swsrn to tariff reduction u between the States and
Canada. President Taft in reciprocity
wu endeavoring to forestall tbe action nf tho Democratic party hy lowering tbe tariff in certain respects la
consideration nf certain equivalents
from Canada, and if successful ho would
moke capital out of it iu seeking reelection by declaring tbat he bed secured valuable coueesalous from Canada by giving uly o portion of what
the Democrat* proppssd lo give us fir
nothing. Canada should pause bore
and wait a little. Let tbe Btates lor-
sr tbeir tariff if they wish lo do so

Mr. Stevens tben road a jiersonal

msn of Miosapolis iu wbicb he do.lurid that reciprocity would greatly bene
fit United Wales cities and put Winni
peg, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and
other Canadian cities back where they
woro fifteen years ago. Oregon and
Wubiugton lumbermen, declared Ihe
speaker, want to capture the market
of tbe prairie provinces aud supply II
with our raw material, manufactured
in their mills, If wo are foolish enough
lo allow It.

(which no ono Inn called in quoeli'iu)
are altogether futile to stem the nd

aide hold upon tls-, ittiuds of sn fff
increasing proportion of tbo el.ctirste
that the spirit of this reciprocity pad
is esseutialiy at euniity with the in

is developing ao ever increasing vol

thai if the reciprocity pact were to pre

succeed. That President Taft aipecte

A decision was banded down by th>i
courts, tt Nelson last week, which has
Important bearing upon tbe relative
rights snd duties of tbe Board of
School Trustees ami tt* City Co'mci..
in tbe matter of providing money for
school purposes.
The board of school trustees of tbe
ity nf Nelson submitted estimates to
tbe city council wbicb included pre
'vision for the sum of »J3,0iH) which
the trustees placed under ordinary es
penditures and which tbe council declined to provide, upon tbe ground tba'.
the items designated were i properly
eitrant.iinary cpem-'s.
Tbe board of school trustees mad"
application lo the iimrts for a v.-it cf
inaudamus, directing tbe council to
provide tbe amount required, wi(h tbe
result tbat judgment was banded dm a
last week by Justice Gregory, to tbe
effect that "The prerogative writ of
mandamus is, speaking generally, only
allowed where tbe party has a clear
right and no other appropriate rem
inly." Tbo writ was therefore refused
on ths ground tbat tbe council bad not
yet failed lo perform any clear duty
imposed upon it by the statute.
Ths judgment cites th» fact that t'-e
school act could be improved in aome
respects and likewise contains plain
and wholesome admonition witb regard to the desirability of tbs schoji
boards aod councils working io bar
muiiy and avoiding tbe expenditure
ff public monies in unuecessaiy l!ti
gation, The erect wording of the
judgment, ia tbis reepeet is aa follows:
I1 Tbe right here seems to me to be
anything but clear, io faet there is so
much doubt arising about the construe
tion nf tbe school act that tke discretion of the court should not bs exercised in favor of granting tbe writ.
The school act undoubtedly requires
amending in several particulars, but it
seems to me tbat Ibe general intent js
reasonably clear and there should he
no difficulty in operating under it, if
both tbe board of trustees and the
mnnlcipal council each for itself de
tormina to work in harmony witb and
aot to usurp the other's functions. The
preeent litigation and waete of public
monies is unfortunate but will be jusli-
Dad If it clears the atmosphere an* reestablishes tbe pleasant relations
wbicb | presume once existed betwee.i
tbe two bodies."
Tbe judgment procee.Ts In the next
clause to distinguish between ordinary
and extraordinary expenditures aa defined in the school act to point out tbat
wbile Ibe council ie not at liberty to
revise tbe school board's estimates
witb reference to tbe former, it ie empowered to revise tbe tetter and tu
alter tbem, if deemed advisable, in
which case tbe school board baa the
right of appeal tn tbe electorate.
Tbis clause of tke judgment ie ae
"Section 311 nf tbe act casts upon th-.
hoard tbe duty of providing schools,
etc., aad section it prescribes tbat all
sxpeases therefor shell be borne and
defrayed by the municipality, but Ibe
board must, under section 48, a* a

Editor Bapress.:
Diar Sir,—I was at tin muting nt
the city council on Monday evening
and hoard the discussion regarding the
ferry company and 'ell to see whin
you had occasion to make a glaring
headline in yesterday'a edition saying
that the city la Iniing W.ooo per to-
num pn thl ferries.
An Inquiry was made by an alder-
man.as to whether tho directors were
prpviding for injures! ami a linking
fund tn  ropey  the city's  debentures
issued to bay stock in thi ferry company. Thi' Would require, it WU
sgid, $38,000 per unuuni. Tbe iniwpr
was "No."
Now sir, if the ferry directors do
not pay. the $28,000 is that any reason
tp say that tho forrics are losing that
money. It is simply this. Thl city
owns the ferry company having bought
it with borrowed money. The gJ8,000
is to pay back that borrowed money.
The city baa value in stock of the company, therefore the city should provide the sinking fund and interest.
The company claim to be providing
a sinking fund fnr their own debentures also to be writing off a sufficient
amount for depreciation of stock If
this is so, which romains to be seen of
