What nationality is a Canadian-  bred  Scotchman?  Will the Conservative convention appoint any Canadian-bred Scotchmen on their executive?  Does crossing the ocean make ^a  Scotchman out of a Dutchman?  A contemporary's ' (U. S. brand)  statement that Mr. R. J. Shortreed  was laid on the shelf with a cold  was an error, R.

Our Shibl-^leth���������Neither for nor agin the Government.  Friday,   Jan. 30,  1914  A few weeks ago the Canadian Pacific Railway announced that during  the past year eighty-five branch factories opened up along their line.These  firms or factories came over from the United States. They brought into  Canada $18,000,000 of capital and aro now giving employment to 10,875  Canadian workingmen. According to the most reliable method of calculation they provide for a new industrial population of from 50,000 to 60,-  000 persons. And this new industrial population creates a new food market for the Canadian farmer, a home market���������the best in the world���������of  not less than ?fi,000,0000 a year.  Why did these S5 factories open up in Canada?  They came over to Canada, simply because of the National Policy, the  object of which is that goods to be sold Canadians must .be manufactured  so far as possible on Canadian soil by Canadians, so as to furnish a market  for other Canadian producers, farmers and artizans.  They came over to Canada to avoid paying customs duties which are  levied as a moderate form of protection for all classes of Canadian industry.  If there were no customs duties���������if Canada had Free Trade���������they could  have sent their wares into Canada free to compete with the Canadian manufacturer. There would be no need of coming to Canada to get over the  tariff wall, they could have kept on doing business in the United States,  employing American instead of Canadian workingmen; and the Canadian  farmer would be minus the increase in his home market of sixty thousand  persons. (  Herein lies the marvellous success of the National policy. By compelling  outside manufacturers to establish branches of their industries in Canada,  there is created a demand for labor, and the greater the demand for labor  the higher is its price. That is the reason why wages are higher, and the  standard of living better under protection, than they are,under Free Trade  By the establishment of industries there is created an industrial population, and a well paid industrial population gives the farmer a profita ble  home market.The proposition is a perfectly simple one, and must be manifest to anyone not blinded by partisan prejudice.  Free Trade, towards which the Liberal party is drifting as it clings to th3  plank f "free food" would mean the loss of thousands of factories that  would be forced to close their doors through their products being brought  into competition with the output of. cheap European labor a nd Oriental  labor. With thousands put of employment wages would fall to the paltry  price'.which labor commands in Free Trade England.  Let the Canadian farmer reflect for a moment on-what such a state of  affairs would mean for himu '  It would mean for him,the.loss of a big, well paid industrial.population  with high standards of living, which provided a splendid home market���������  ' the most profitable of all.  It would mean for him not only a restricted, but an impoverished -home  market, for the higher the price of labor, the better the home market for  the farmer and vice versa.  The migration of United States manufacturers to Canadian soil means an  increase in the home market of the Canadian farmer. It means more em  ployment for the Canadians, and more capital for the country. But it is  important to remember that their coming to Canada is dependent on the  maintenance of that tariff which the doctrinaires, and faddists of the Liberal   party  are urging  the  farmer  to   destroy.  It is to the Canadian National Policy of mode.rate and equitable protection for all branches of industry, that the Canadian farmer owes the large  and profitable home market that he enjoys to-day.  It is a market which under the nourishment an dprotection -of a moderate tariff, is growing so rapidly that the Canadian farmer can scarcely  meet its many demands.  No matter from what standpoint the question is approached, it is manifest that no class of the Canadian people have profited more, and stand to  profit more in the future from the National Policy than the farmer.  Years ago they were compelled to seek a market abroad to gain a living  To-day they have a profitable home market for nearly everything they  grow, and in some cases for more than they grow.  Why kill the goose that lays the golden egg?    Why reverse the lever  of prosperity? Why  desert a policy that  brought permanent. prosperity?  Why should the Canadian farmer submit to having his home market  thrown open to foreign competitors, when such a step could not possibly  render any good for evil?  The agriculturists of this country answered these questions with no uncertain emphasis on September 21, 1911.  These must be studied. They should be canvassed in Washington Tokio,  Peking, Calcutta, Dehli, Melbourne, Sydney, Cape Town, Johannesburg,  New. York and London The .final adjustment, if one can be arrived at,  must be made with reference to these principles of right and wrong.  Let us consider the attitude of Japan in the premises. The Japanese  are a fine and a strong people. They are very proud, just' as we are ' proud  They have just as much reason to lie proud, as-we have.' They have a  very ancient and splendid civilization. They are poets and artists andscient-  ists. They have a fine system of ethics a nd some virtues,which they can  teach us.' In patriotism, in enterprise, in efficiency, all along the line, of  modern, life-they compare favorably with all other' peoples. They are hot  inferior to us���������let that be admitted at the outset. So long as we act with  reference to them on the theory that they are inferior, we shall be in the  wrong. They think themselves superior to us. We think ourselvs superior to thm. That is the natural attitude of the mass of the people of every  land. ��������� But in the last analysis the Japanese will be entitled to the verdict  that they are just as able, just as efficient, and just as good as we are.  What reason can we1 find then for making laws which will tend to keep  the Japanese out? Let us see what our destiny is and how it can be work  ed out, determine'what our problems are, and see what effect the incoming  of the Orientals would have on our welfare and our affairs.  We of the great Caucasian nations, especially the English-speaking nations, have unreservedly .committed ourselves .to the theory of democracy.  We are more and more accepting democracy as the natural order of things  We have very dreadful problems to work out through the instrument of the  ballot. The ballot rests on equality of rights, of more or less common  views and common interests among the people. Voting is a species of con  ference. Minds meet and settle- questions in the elections no less than in  town meetings.  A democracy is a people who reason together and express their decisions  by the ballot. If they do not speak the same language, if theTe exists a  great body of maters on which they cannot come to a mutual understanding, if the mental gap between great factions among them is too great, to  be bridged, if for any reason there exists any irreconsilablo antagonism  among them, if great bodies of them are in economic warfare, the dino-  cracy cannot exist. ,. - _  This is why. we are already in such deep difficulties with our democracy  We have many antagonistic classes. Wo have trying times ahead. It is  sure to be hard for us to weather '-the storms which these problems will  generate. The labor question, tho growing problem of farm tenantry,' the  amalgamation of the millions of European immigrants, the redemption  of our backward' population in the Appalachian' Mountains���������all these are  hard things to solve. '     *  But the people of our own antagonistic classes look alike and feel alike  toward each other_under the circumstances. They can and do not mix.  Remove the reasons'for enmity,' and the enmity vanishes.- Nobody can  tell a Northener from a Southerner, or a Bohemian from a Scotchman, ot  the progeny of an old New York anti-ranter .from the descerident of a pa-  troon, or a whiskey insurrectionist's progeny from the descendent of a  soldier sent out to put down the insurection, so far as looks are concerned.  After all our contending forces, except those of the nogro, belong to the  same basic race, and are unable to tell each other apart in a few years  after any struggle takes place. They have more intelectual and spiritual  similarities than they haVe of any sort of difference.    They mix. ���������  Mt.

It is for generations to come. It is not a Japanse question  alone. It is a Chinese question, a Hindu question, a Korean question,  a Syrian and Armenian question. It is a Canadian question, an Australian  question, a South African question, a Mexican question, a South America  question, a New Zealand question.  It is a world question.    It is a problem for all time.  It is the local outcropping of the greatest of world problems���������theriddle  of the Intermingling of races.  It cannot be settled on the narrow basis of any treaty with Japan, nor  on the local basis of opinion in California, nor the feelings of the people  of all the States on the Pacific Coast.  It ought not to be adjusted by the people of the United States in ignorance nor prejudice, nor with reference to political platforms, nor the  demand for cheap labor.  It cannot be lightly slighted off.lt is an irrepressible struggle. It will  persist for ages. Its complexities and menace are bound to become nearer and more menacing as every invention in transportation and every advance in commerce brings white men and brown men and yellow men into  closer and closer contact with each other.

NEWS   FROM  ALDEIIGROVW  The Rev. G. A. Wilson,superintendent for missions for British Columbia, visited Aldergrove and met  -on Tuesday evening with the Sunday  "School workers and church managers  The combined reports presented by  this and the other sections of the  mission show that good work has  been done by the various agencies  and that the outlook is promising  Mr. Wilson in his address, dwelt  the need' there is of liberal contri  butions on the part of the people so  that .the church may reach the mass  of. immigrants that settle in Canada  Missions that have long enjoyed usp-  port from the church should aim to  be seif-supporting and thus leave  our hands free to operate elsewhere  Today the churches can hardly provide religious ordinances for the  many that settle in our land.  In order to show what is being  done in the northern part of the province, Mr. Wilson threw on a screen  by the help of a magic lantern,-pictures of scenes along the Skeena  river, Hazelton and the Fraser canyons. These were most entertaining  to his audience and will be long  remebered here as indications of the  rough part" of the earth people go in  seeking their fortunes and those others who follow them to give them  thebread of life. After the lecture  the ladies present served tea and-  cake in abundance to all who waited  patiently to take in this part of the  entertainment.  Much sympathy, is expressed for  Mr. Sinclair of Aberdeen on the very  sad occasion of his wife's death, on  January 22.  Aldergrove welcomes to its midst  Mrs. McDonald, who has exchanged  with Mr. Tenant the cottage and land  adjoining known as McComb's. She  and her family intend lo occupy it,  keep boarders and cultivate the soil  Much success to her enterprise is  wished by the residents.  Early in the week many eyes were  straining at Mr. J. W. Dean's cottage  in expectation of seeing a puff of  smoke. The boys who were among  the first discoverers quickly organized a charivari and kept up their  merry-makingg until a late hour en  Monday evening. Their friends extend cordial congratulations to Mr.  and Mrs. George Moore on the occasion of their home-coniing.

According to a notice which has  been published making- application  to the Legislative Assembly now in  session in Victoria, it would appear  that there have been no Sumas Dyking Commissioners for the Sumas  Dyking District for the past five or  so years, and consequently no bargain with Rice &. Co., for the construction of the Sumas Dyke. This  is indeed unwelcome news to the  people who have been ��������� expecting to  build up a business when the dyke  was  completed.  The present so called dyking commissioners were appointed as commissioners under, the Sumas Development Company, Limited Act, 1905  This company.was taken over by the  B. C. E. R. about 1908, since which  time the company has been merged  with the B. C.' E. R., and it is not i  likely that that company would recognize the present dyking commissioners.  The very best thing that can be  done now is for these ' dyking commissioners (so-called) to -take the  people into their confidence' and explain just how the matter stands. It  is a matter of vital interest to the  whole prairie to know, as if there is  no chance of the present dyking  scheme going ahead there are other  plans that might be carried out.  M. MacDonald.
