Whan Sir Wilfrid Liurier extended

Qreat Britain more than $500,000,-

Speaking at Orillia the otber day, Mr.
Meighen said:
"Tariff revision on farm products will be
in the very first tariff revisin we make. We
will make only one revision, and in tbat re
vision we will place the tariff on farm products entering (Janada to just as high a
. level as the American tariff."
But tbere is a joker in the pack. On agood
many farm products the United States tariff
is lower than that of Canada. Mr. Meighen
apparently likes.the "brick for brick argument" when talkiug in Ontario—that is, be
promises a tariff wall of tha same dimensions
as fhe United States "brick for brick,"
If such a policy were followed the duties ou
some United States products entering Oanad
would be lowered. In this connection the following statistics are illuminating:

Ottawa, August 31.—Meighen's

are hopeless.
Keen political followers have for
some time paved tbe way for a den

up tbeir opinions.

ia always a risk in favor of the
train but when a motorist halt* his
car and waits until an engine is almost alongside him before he tries

an absolute certainty—againat the
motorist. This was the-case recently in Toronto where a car was signalled to stop by the watchman at
a crossing, obeyed the signal, and
then decided he would still try and
get over. Fortunately there were no
injuries and the only sufferer was
the automobile.

Phosr 101 .  Geamd Forks, B. CJ
From Montreal comes a statement to the
efiect that there has heen an increase of $11,
869,711.25, or 209.44 per ceut, in the ne earn
ings of the Canadian National railways for the
first seven months of 1926 as compared with
the same period of last year. The statement
also, shows the highest gross earnings for any
seven-month period since the consolidated
system figures were set up in June, 1922, and
the highest gross net for any July during the
five years. These figures clearly reflect the
effect of the polices of the King government.
They are definitely related to the additional
business created by the extension of tbe British preference by which onr sales to the old
country have increased from $370,000,000 to
$516,000,000 in the last three years. These
increased exports naturally have created more
business for the railways. Trade with Australia and with the British West Indies likewise
has grown under the trade treaties negotiated
by the King government, In a general way,
moreover, thc figures are indicative of the
tremendous improved condition of the country,
with its favorable trading balance with the
rest of the world at more than $400,000,000,
as compared with an adverse balanco of $30,-
000,000 in 1921.
and the eoncessinns increased on two occasions. What has this meant? It has meant
that, to take thi: year ending last June as an
example, we have been selling to Gi-eBt Brit
airi three times more than we have be n.buying from her. The figures for this twelve
month in question were as follows: Sales by
Canadu to Great Britain, $515,000,000; sales
by Great Britain to Canadu, $163,000,000.
Mr. Meighen would disturb this trading arrangement by imposing a hai dicap" upon the
British exporter to Canada, for it follows that
if he can not sell as much to us he will have to
cut down his purchases from us accordingly.
So much for tho Conservative party's desire to
kill th~ goose that is laying the golden eggs!

Visitors from every corner ofthe world will

Not a single Conservative newspaper in
British Columbia has dared to explain or discuss Mr. Meighen's imperial relations policy

Tories dodge it? Imagine a great party afraid

purpose of "selling protection to" the Canadi

number of gentlemen wbo bave done well out
of the privileges granted to them  by  parliament.    They have fattened on the Canadian
people, and now ask for more.    Their literature has been scattered from one end of- the
country to tbe other.    It is understood that
it is  written  by a gentleman named W. R,
Morson, who claims that he gets  notbing for
the task—and he is overpaid at tbat.   In the
main, it is false in fact, and false in inference.

One very definite policy upon which Mr
Meifhen has declared himself is the Conseiv.
ative party's determination to abolish the
privilege—meaning a lower rate of import
dnty than foreign goods have to pay—which
this Dominion now extends to British goods
entoring Canada through Canadian ports. In
the honst* of commons and out of it Mr.
Meighen has emphatically declared that Great
Britain must tax her people as a Oonditiop for
a reciprocal trading arrangeniBnt with this
country. Unless Great Britain will do this,
he will wipe out the British preference by
putting the British article coming into this
Domiuion on the same basis as the article
ooming in from Germany or Austria or any
other fcreign country. In other words, Mr.
Meighen's peculiar way of strengthening the
coram u bond between Canada aud the Unia
ted Kingdom would be to increase the cost of
living in the old country and to make it much
more difficult for the two countries to trade
with one another. First of all the British
preference was established by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier without any conditions at all. It was
a voluntary concession from his government
in 1897. During the war, when Brita n's
trado and commerce was being shot to pieces
by the German submarines, the Tory govern
ment of this country increased the duty on
goods coming into Canada from the United
Kingdom and materially contributed to her
trading difficdlties at that time. The prefer
ence was rosto ed  by the King government

YOU'LL find the Smooth Chevrolet always in the front of the
traffic line. At the sound of the
whistle or the sight jil the word
"Go", the smooth Chevrolet is first
to get away.
Chevrolet will mn rings around large,
cumbersome cars—weaving in and
out of traffic with an ease that is
almost uncanny. Chevrolet may bc
turned completely around in thc
width of an ordinary road. It can be
parked with ease in a surprisingly
small space. It will gather speed on
hills where bigger, costlier cars slow
down.   And always the Chevrolet
driver knows that, pulsating quietly
beneath the hood, is abundant power
that will not fail him in an emergency, while Chevrolet, above any
cars in its class, possesses the smoothness that makes driving—either fast
or slow — a source of pleasure and

Saving Burglars Time
A tag with this inscription,
"This safe is uever locked,
turn the handle and it will
open,"has hung on the knob
of the strong box of a fuel
company at Tulare, Cal., for
the   last   seven  years.     Al
though the statement is perfectly true, burglars do not
believe it and have ranst*cked
the safe three times It is
used only for protection of

Millions in Interest
The United States government has paid out more than
$11,000,000,000 in Interest on
the public debt since 1771.
The greatest amount in one

in 1923. This year the estimated interest payment will

Definite Indications of the largest
building year Canada has had in
more than a decade are now shown
by the record of the first six monthi
of this year. The very large and unusual total of fl94,543,600 worth of
»ew construction for the first half
•f the current year and contemplated
new work to the value of $304,598,-
600 forecasts great activity for tha
remaining months. During June
contracts awarded totalled $54,186,-
400, an increase over June, 1925, of
63 per cent.
One of the greatest foundations
upon which the Canadian national
apirit rests was laid by the Canadian
Pacific Railway was thc conviction
uttered by J. D. Cameron, of Glasgow, in an address before an audience at' Pembroke recently. "Not
merely did this railroad act," he
said, "as a bond between all the
provinces of thc Confederation, but
It was, by its conception and final
construction, a greater force than
anything else for the unification of
the scattered provinces."
The sea-faring settlers of the Hebrides are not all fishermen as one
might expect, but farmers in a small
way known in the rugged northern
Islands as crofters. Father It. A.
MacDonnell, the clergyman in charge
of the immigration of these hardy
folk to Western Canada, disclosed
this interesting point recently en
route to his headquarters at Red
Deer, Alberta. Father MacDonnell
has been in Canada about fifteen
years and has been engaged in immigration work during tbat time.

'Proper ageing
healthful beer
k MONG the measures taken in the plants
_/\. °f tne Amalgamated Breweries to assure
that the beer made for the people of
British Columbia is of the purest and most
healthful character there is a factor not often
brought to the attention of the public.
Tliat is proper ageing, under the most favorable
conditions known to the science of brewing.
The stability afforded the brewing industry in
British Columbia by the legal, above-board and
Government Controlled sale of beer, by the
glass ir licensed premises and by the bottle
in Government Stores, affords the Amalgamated
Breweries an opportunity to maintain an ample
and sufficient reserve that is allowed to mature
slowly and naturally.
The ageing of beer in the plants of the Amalgam-ted
Breweries completes the physical and chemical processes
that the malt and hops undergo in the course of brewing
and is among thc reasons why the people of British
Columbia are provided with beer of high quality.
Pure and healthful beer is the product ofthe finest
materials plus the utmost care, and most elaborate
and scientific equipment is required. In its making
it is absolutely sterilized, and prolonged filtering
leaves it crystal clear and a delight to the eye.
Then comes the ageing that removes every trace of
the rawness often found in beers that are too
"young," and that makes it bland and digestible—
really a pre-digested liquid food, high in nourishing
The. valuable sugars, proteins, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds are united in close and homogenous union, and, most important of all, fermentation
is totally ended, leaving the alcoholic strength low—
4.25 per cent, as provided for by law—and just
sufficient to stimulate the digestive system in the most
favorable manner.
Visitors are welcome at all times to inspect the model plants of the
Vancouver Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Spring Brewery Ltd., and the
Victoria Phoenit Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer supplied to the
people of British Columbia is made.
