It is the Laurier- government which
is wholly responsible for the shape in
which the bill passed the House. That
is   what  they are  there for, and   tho
miin is a fool, be he Dr. McDonald or
George Kirby,   who would think for a
moment that any, government which
is in office can shift the responsibility
for any measure it may puss, to   the
minutest detail thereof.
The only penalty that c-in attach to
Jim Hill for failing to ibiiild under the
extension granted.. h'iih is   to   refuse
further extension, and that again will
not bether him in the ^slightest.   "But
George Kirby, in tooting ".for reciprocity,-is.doing the vervithing which is
"most.calculated;'.to'result' in "the V. V."
& E. never being built to the coast;
for then Jim Hill would have no use
for any coast connection and he is not
in the habit of -spending money on
things he has no need for.
To take the ground they have done
in this matter, Dr. McDonald jind Geo.
Kirby made the Laurier. government
occupy the same position as the small
boy who committed a gievious fault
and then .turned to his companion
with the rebuke, "jSto\v see what you
let me do."
Mr. Kudyaid Kipling sends the following message to the Canadian people through the Montreal Star.
BATESMAN, Sussex, England, Sep
C���To the Editor of the Montreal Star:
"I do not understand how 9,000,000
people can enter into such arrangement as those proposed with 90,000,000
strangers on an open frontier of 4,000
miles and at the same time preserve
their national integrity.
"Ten'to one is too heavy odds. No
single Canadian 'would accept such
odds in any private matter that was as
vital to him personally as this issue is
to the nation.
"It is her own soul that Canada, risks
today, Once that soul is pawned fur-
any consideration Canada must inevitably conform to the commercial, financial, social and ethical standaids Of
the United States.
"She might, for exam pit*, be compelled later on to admit reciprocity in
the murder rate of the United States,
which at present,-1 believe, is something over ]*)0 per 1,000,000 per annum
"If these proposals had been made a
generation ago, or if the Dominion
were today poor and depressed and
without hope one would perhaps und-
being discussed, but
Canada is none of those things. She
is a nation and as the lives of nations
are reckoned, will erelong he among
the great nations.
' "Why, then, when she has made
herself what she is, should she throw
the enormous gifts of her inheritance
and her future into the hands of a
people who, hy their haste and waste,
have so dissipated their own resources
thateyen before national middle age
they are driven to seek virgin fields of
cheaper food and living.
"Whatever the United States gain,
and I presume that the United States'
motives are not altogether altruistic,
Tsee liothingfor Canada in  reciproc
she does not need    and a  very  long

When the Globe and Laurier and
Fielding assume that the Canadian
i'arineis are the grain growers of the
prairie piovinces who grow only one
crop and have to buy all the rest of
their supplies, they deliberately misrepresent, and that is something
which ministers should not do, whether they be ordinary political ministers
or- ministers of the gospel like rthe
Pharisee of the Globe.
The farmers of Canada are the men
who are working 50 and 100 acre holdings and are car-tying on mixed farming. These are the men who are hit
at every turn by reciprocity as they
lose their protection on everything
they have to sell and are .-till taxed
for all they have to buy.
It is only a matter of one or two decades more when the farmers of the
prairies will have to come down to
mixed farming too, and therefore it is
in their interests that Canada's home
market be preserved. They are not
wise to kick too hard at the prices
they are paying Ontario farmers for
horses for it will be only a little while
when they themselves will have live
stock to sell and Canada and Britain
will be their hot markets. They forget also that it was tin-people of the
eastern provinces who built their railways for them and gave them all that
has contributed to their present prosperity.

The reciprocity agreement entered
into by our government is an American proposition made in Washington.
It was conceived and is begotten by a
fear that a tariff will shortly be adopted by the people of Great Britain
whereby American products will be
subjected to a duty, while Canadian
products will still be admitted free.
This will explain Taft's reason for
urging congress .'to pttss the agreement

In his masterly speech in the House
of Commons on the reciprocity pact,
Clifford Sifton lirs the following to
say of  Yale-Cariboo's  representative.
'���I shall not say anything about the
fruit and vegetable growers. They
will be injured, Their case has been
stated by men who know vastly more
about it than I do. But I call the attention of my friends in the government to the fact that my lion, friend
from Yale-Cariboo (Mr. Burrell) made
before this House a full and careful
presentation of the case of the fruitgrowers and vegetable growers: no
fairer, no better-, no fuller cast' was
ever presented to this House while I
have been a member of. it, and no
answer of any kind has been attempted
in connection with that subject. You
ask me why 1 do not support this proposition. Surely, Mr. Chairman, if I
had the intelligence to hear and under
stand a case of that kind as presented
and no answer made, I must come to
the conclusion that no answer can be
made. '
A great rnatiy who have not gone
into the. .question, of how reciprocity
will effect the various products of the
farm and the orchard, seem to have
got it into their heads that while the
pact would deal a severe blow to the
peach industry the tipple trade would
be effected" but very little.
One of the visionary claims made by
supporters of reciprocity in connection
with the apple trade is that because
DeHart, of Kelowna, captured prizes
in Spokane for his apples and afterwards was able to sell the prize fruit
for double tbe usual market price for
the same grade and variety of tipples,
and because a Stimiiierland man had
���received'a fancy price for a few boxes
from some epicure in the eastern states
that this will be the price which all
British Columbia growers are goiti�� to
receive for their apples.
To   leave the visionary   and lake up
the  practical,   a good  article on   the
apple trade that is built tin fact instead
of fancy  was published in   the Penticton   Herald.     That   paper  [mints out
that the duty on apples is now 13 cents
per- box and   that a low yield of apples
is 100 boxes to the acre which means a
loss  of .$52 per  acre when   the duty is
taken   off, or in   round  numbers a loss
of .$o00 per year 011 apples alone to tlie
owner of a ten acre lot.    In the face of
a thing  as obvious as that, surely we
should   hear no   more   of such  idiotic
claims  about   the advantages  to   the
British   Columbia fruit-grower, of reciprocity and the larger market.    The
British   Columbia fruit-grower should
remember  the  anecdote  of   the   dog
which   dropped the  bone in   trying to
catch   the  shadow.    Better  take care
of  the  home   market  they   have got
than lose it in gambling tor the fancy
market of the   U. S. millionaire;   for
when all   the orchards  are in   hearing
around ��� here there  might not  be millionaires   enough   in  New York   to go
who waited on him  last  winter with
cartloads of data which   showed  him
how those industries  would be ruined
by reciprocity, Sir Wilfrid told them
that  somebody must  be  hurt  in   all
great fiscal changes, and they must be
prepared to bear it, when tho sacrifice
fell on them.   Apparently he has now ,
forgotten all about that incident, for-
enly tried to force down   the  throats
of   fruit-growers   and   horse-breeders
how they would benefit   by being able
to send fruit and horses into the U. S.
without   paying    duty.      Either   we
must conclude  that the old man is  in
his dotage, or is deliberately trying to
deceive   them.     What  more   pitiable
sight than  an  old  man (be he dotard
or reprobate)   with  one  foot   in   the
grave,   brazenly stating   untruths   as
palpable and self-evident as that "two
from three leayes five."
Arr amusing but more or less apt
epitome of Lanrier's naval policy was
given to Dr. McDonald at Princeton
by a local man of that place who told
the candidate that Lanrier's plan was
to let Britain supply all the ships and
Laurier would supply the ocean.

Of course, if the  defeat should prove to be a crushing  one, it- might minimise the barm done  to a Certain extent, but only faintly  miniuii'/.e it.  Now we aro-quite aware that no  statement of this kind should be given  out as mere opinion without some  valid reasons or facts to back it up.  That would be to emulate the example  of the Liberals who have brought up  reciprocity (or rather have allowed  T'aft m bring it up for them) without  advancing anythiny more than the  bald opinion that it would be to the  advantage of the country. "When  Fielding presented reciprocity to the  House, on behalf of the government  the only reason be could offer why  parliament should support it was the  mere opinion already stated and that  conservatives had been in favor- of  reciprocity years ago. In that shape  it was assailed by tbe opposition with  hot shot from till sides and Lanrier's  defence was not a whit better than  Fielding's for he also appeared to rest  his case on the claim that once upon a  time Sir- John McDonald and his followers had been in favor of reciprocity.  Now for our reason. When the protective tariff under which Canada has  lu-en built up was launched its advocates claimed that it would cover the  land with tall chimneys, but the Grits  only jeered at this and kept up their-  agitation to "wipe out the last vestige of protection," (those were the  words which 'Laurier used concerning  it.) Contrary to the expectation of  the Conservatives who expected more  American concerns to establish their  industries on this side of the line, very  few of them started to come and it  was left to Canadian concerns to enlarge their factories and start new  ones. Of course it is easy to see now  why U. S. manufacturers were slow  to move when they always expected  the Liberals in Canada to regain power  and then they could command the  Canadian market again without gorng  to the expense of building anew on  Canadian soil. A few of them got  tired waiting before the eighteen years  of Conservative rule had terminated,  and built branches in Canada, but the  rest waited patiently for a few years  after 1890 to see Laurier put into practice what he had preached before that  date. But after the general election  of 1900 when the Liberals had been returned  to   power   and   protection  in  Canada seemed to  be as strongly en-  ' trenched as it had been under Conser  : vative  rule,   they  began   to establish  , branches   in   Canada   by   the   dozen,.  ! Now  we have it on no less authority  j than  the organ  of the   United  States  I -Manufacturers' Association which says  ' that during   the   last   ten   years   750  American   concerns  have been  forced  to   build   in Canada, and   urged   upon  legislators in the United States to support Taft's scheme for reciprocity, with  Canada as a means towards  stoppiiig  tlie leak which wa.s draining manufacturing capital out of the'United States.  These   facts  effectually   prove   the.  correctness   of   our   statement    that  Laurier  has already done more hariii  than   his  neck  is worth   by allowing  reciprocity to become an is������ue at all in  this country  at  the present  time, for  the investing  army is always loath to  raise the siege as long as he has reason  to believe,  that there  may be traitors  in the garrison, and  in  this case the  traitors are the officers of tlie garrison  with the commander himself at their  head.    Let the soldiers of the garrison  now. remain loval.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS :.  If Taft and Laurier are permitted to  finish their work the Stars and Stripes  will wave over Canada within twenty  years.���������Ledge. l  The Liberals say they are going to  make this a cheap Country to live in.  Yes; soup kitchens, and a cheap country to work in, like what it was when  Sir John turned them out in 1878.  ���������'A little ready money and long repentance" will be Canada's portion for  every cord of pulpwood she sells to  Taft at $4.50 per cord and allows him  to make up into paper on his side of  the line and sell at seven times as  much.  Dr. McDonald is reported to have  claimed that reciprocity would both  increase the price of farm products  and lower the cost of living. Iii doing  this the Dr. qualifies as the most acrobatic political economist now doing-  stunts through the country.  The object is..not ..merely, to elect  . Burrell '-hullo speak emphatically that  Canada must maintain her fiscal independence. To simply elect Burrell  would not be to make the voice of  Yale.- Cariboo heard in this great matter, but to swell his majority to 1500 is  what Yale-Cariboo owes herself this  time.  Dr. McDonald, like his leader, bases  the whole case for reciprocity on the  contention that Sir John McDonald  was in favor of reciprocity 40 years  ago. Well, the Dr. himself was very  much in favor of a nursing bottle,  forty years ago, but that is no reason  why he. should still confine himself to  that diet.  The Laurier press and politicals who  are acting as pullers-in for Uncle Sam  try to beguile our farmers with the  raw fraud that the pact would give  them an additional market for their  produce. What it really would do is  to deprive them of a great part of  their home market.���������Ledge.  Kipling says ten to one is too big  odds to gamble against. If one boy  has an apple and ten other boys have  another apple'among them, wouldn't  it be better for the one boy to keep  his one apple than to put it in with  the other crowd and share alike with  them? in the one case he was sure of  one apple and in tbe other case he  might be fortunate enough to get one-  eleventh of two apples, provided they  did not try to do him out of that small  share.  Dr. McDonald may be a good dentist but he has a lot to learn about  fruit-growing or he would not have  made some of the remarks with which  he was credited at Hedley. The Dr.  forgets that the fruit crop in B. C. is  not quite as sure as the crop ot decayed teeth, and that the profits of the  good years must be ample to carry the  fruit-grower over the bad years. The  Dr. who can fall back on his profession during the bad years, or perhaps  find an acceptable government job,  can perhaps afford to be magnanimous  in the good years and divide, up the  profits of his fruit ranch with others,  but the average fruit-grower is not so  fortunate in having so many things to  fall back on.  The present cjanipaign is far too  short to give thie electors a proper  understanding <|>f so /momentous- a  question as leciplrocity. This is seen  by the large and|eyer: increasing numbers of Liberals fwho )U (. coining out  and declaring themselves against reciprocity, with the) stipulation that this  act on their pari^ had nothing whatever to do with tjheir.''party allegiance.  All honor to suojh men; it is just such  as they who hav.bke.pt freedom alive  in all ages and in will lands.

Capital and Reserve Over $7,500,000  Hedley Branch,  H. A Hincks, Manager  Reciprocity is not a party question  even if Sir Wilfrid was determined to  make it so, and would listen to no appeals from the opposition to keep it  out of politics. It is far deeper than  partv. so let us all forget for a while  simply Canadians till the common  whether we are Grits or Tories and be  danger is past. Then let the country  demand a plebiscite that the voice of  the people may be. heard on-this question untrammelled hy party ties.  Neither Laurier nor any of his supporters attempted in the House to  answer Mr. Burr-ell's proof of injury  (and in some cases ruin) which reciprocity would/rework upon Canadian  fruit-growers and vegetable growers;  but Laurier himself, at Stratford last  week, dared to make statements to  farmers and fruit-growers that were  the very opposite, to 'admissions he  had himself made last winter to deputations that waited on him to remonstrate against .the reciprocity pact.  Isn't it time for achangc?  One pleasing feature about the election in Yale-Cariboo is that both party  candidates aie-^nen of probity, warranting the belief that they would  either, of them -make worthy representatives, if elected. The advantage, of  course, rests with Mr. Burrell, who is  a tried man and has already demonstrated.-his fitness during three sessions in which he showed his ability  to step into the front rank among the  debaters of the House, and to command the attention of the. leaders in  whatever he had to bring forward.   ; 4������   AVhen all is said and done the present political campaign resolves itself  into the simple question of whether  Canadians will vote for commercial  union with the United States, with  the possibility of ultimate annexation,  or for conserving their own resources  for themselves and the Empire to  which they belong. It is "Vote for  Laurier- and United States Markets" or  "For Canada and Inter-Imperial trade.  - Colonist.

Mr. Carle  has found it necessary this year, owing to the failure of some crops, to import fruit from Washington and some  of. the quotations   he received  from  growers across the line, shown to us,  made this talk of the Liberals about a  greater and better market for the British Columbia fruit-grower .on the  other side of the line look decidedly  ridiculous.

It was left to him to say  whether the election in Yale-Cariboo  should be deferred or not and that he  has decided to hold it the same day as  the rest is taken as evidence of his  fairness.

Budding politicians should always  consider well their little sallies of wit  before, delivering them, else the laugh  is apt to be where they least intended  it. At a Liberal meeting in- New  Westminister recently, an easterner,  in berating the arguments of his opponents remarked that the Liberals  could supply fhfe Conservatives with  plenty of matter for argument but  could not supply them with brains.  Nearer home a would-be politician  resurrected the. ancient biblical.chestnut of the deviland the lion.with the  result ..thai his hearers.are still wondering "What the devil he was roaring about."  In the political contest now at its  height both parties tire boasting of the  recruits gained from the ranks of the  other. It could not well be otherwise  considering the manner in which the  reciprocity pact works to the advantage of one section of the country at  the expense of another, and also the  strone appeals made by leaders to the  rank and file to break from party and  vote in their own interests. It is just  as difficult to conceive of a B. 0.  rancher, who has an ounce of political  independence, voting for the pact as  it is to conceive of the same individual  on the prairies voting against it. Each  can foretell with almost absolute certainty the immediate results from the  lob-sided bargain while the tiltim-.ite  results arc shrouded in a thick haze of  uncertainty.  11. H. Carmiehael arrived here on  Thursday evening on his return from  his trip to the coast and remained  over until Monday morning, the bank  being kept open on Friday and Saturday instead of the usual days last  week.

Lcav  at three o'clock on Friday  afternoon they arrived at Hope at *i p.  m. next day and caught the seven  o'clock train into Vancouver- where  they arrived a. few hours later. We  do not know whether this establishes  a recoid over that route or not but it  certainly was going some and has  either the C P. I'- or .'Jim Hill's line  faded by several blocks. While at the  coast Mr. Carmiehael witnessed the  lacrosse match between Vancouver  and New Westminster on Labor Day.  He considered the game was played  on its merits and that the better team  won. The general impression is that  these games are being manipulated to  draw big gates and swell tho exchequer* of'I he management.  ���������"���������ffcyj-"-^^'*'-"f^l"*^^  K  X  s.
