The hall wa- filled ,wiHi delegates from all parts of the Empiie,  those from each colony being' grouped  under their own banner. Canada had'  two tables, the others one. Mr. Chamberlain addressed the meeting and pie-  dieted the closei connection between t  the old country and the colonies. He,  discussed commercial union and imperial defence, and dwelt upon the  resolutions of the Ten onto Board of  Trade which'stated that ".The ad van- ���������  tagesto.be obtained by closer union  between-the'various portions of the  > British Knipireare-so great as to justify  an arrangement based upon the principles of the fi eesi. exchange of commodities within the Empire consistent with.  tariff requirement's incident, to the  maintenance of .the local government  of each kingdom, dominion,,'province  or colony now fen-mihg part,of the.  British family of Nations."  Commenting upon the above tesoln-N,  lion, Mi. Chamberlain'said its adopt ion  would establish  immediate and practically free trade throughout the Empire.

If 1 thougl'it for  one  "     moment.t hat, (he present tariff was   to  '* ,      be wiped"out.  in   this   fashion   by   the  1 Liberal pm;t\^J_wr)iilil-Jh.-ive lo conclude  thaftlfe  Liberals   were' levolulioui-ts  not,   Hefoi inei-s\ ��������� and,  .therefore,     un-  '' worthy, the  support, of  the   people  of  ,    Canada.

T'-.i- low hi riff wa-  afterwards rai-ed to 17A per cent.1 by  I he Mackenzie Governiucul, and it is  well known that it would have been  increased to 20 per cent.. Juit for the  determined opposition of the members  from the Maritime Provinces.    No one  in connection'with   the   Liberal   party  i t ,  pioposes, as far as   1   know,   to   return  even to.the 171 per cent,; tariff: that  is impo-*ih|e under the alleied circumstances. If such is the case the manufacturer.-of the country will continue  to have an advantage; over the foreign  manufacturer to as great, an extent as  they have any right, to expect, and  surely the assertion that a free admis-  c sion of foreign maiiiif.-u-l ureil   goods   is  contemplated it. jiisst a bogey to frighten a certain section of tbe community.  TWK  HIOII   TAK1FJ''  KlilON.'  ���������When the pi otective   principle   pure"  and simple was introduced and a   tariff  on manufactured goods ranging all the  \v.-iy fiom .'() to IU)  per    cent,    was   in  opeiation for a   number  of  years,   the  'agitation of the count ry against such a  burdensome   tariff   became   so    great  that, the present Government vv.-tsconi-  pelled in IS!)I   to  cut,  off  some  of  the  " mouldering  branches"  aril   make  a  numberof icducfions.    Unforlunetely.  however,   a   very   large    number    of  *       manufacturers,   who   tire   now   doing  1    business under a fa riff  of,   say,   2o  per  cent., have to pay  a  duty   of over u()  per cent, on the law material   required  by them.    This applies particularly   !o  agricultural implement,  makers,   stove  manufacturers and engine builders.

SBCTION'AL.   >;c/r NATIONAL.  A  policy   which   creates   monopolies  and enriches a few  at   the   expense  of  the   many  cannot   truly   be   calied   a  national policy, as only a small section,  of  the   people  are   benefited.    Such   a  policy is sectional rather than national.  I    have   caiefiilly     considered     your  attitude    toward   Canadian   manufacturers.,     f believe you have the  'ability  aiul the desire to legislate with due  re-  (gaid lo (he interests of all classes,   and  I am  sure  the   manufacturers   of   the  country who are manufacturing under  proper conditions, and are willing that  the interests of the great   body   of  the  people-should be eared for, have nothing  Co fear from an> gradual changes  that  would be made by ,an   Administration  of  which   you   were   the   head.    I   am  strongly of the opinion   that  the  time  has, come   now   when   the   protective  principle must cease   to   he   ihe   main  idea iii framing a tariff.    Husiness wi"  Husin  continue to b<> unset t led find tbe growth  of the country retarded so long   as   we  have legislation favoring  one  <-|a,ss  at  the expense of another,   which   lies  at  the root of protection.    The Conservative party readjusted the tariff in   IS!)I  in   the   diiection   of   more    moderate  duties,.    The Libeial party has adopted  the principle of a   revenue   tariff  high  c'nenigh to meet the   necessities  (.f  the,  Government, which practically affords  Canadian   manufacturers ��������� ,i   considerable advantage over foreign   competitors, and as the tariff   issue   is   not   as-  wide ;is it, was  in   ISO],   J   cannot  help  thinking thai, the advent of the Liberal  party.to   power  would   place   political  parties in Canada in the same, position  as political   parties  in   England,    who  have   no   tariff,  issue   distracting   the  country every election.  If I am right in ^concluding that' a  Liberal Administration would reform  the present tariff in tlie direction I  have outlined, taking a practical business view of the-whole'question .,s i()  what was best for out own Dominion,  without regard Lo.theoi etical opinions  .-is iii the merits ,of protection or five  trade, I will be plea-ed' to have your  confirmation in tbe form suggested.

This point  I will not discuss here,    r appeal   upon  it to the judgment of the people and to  the expeiience  of all.    On   the   other  hand, th"   Liberal   patty   assert   as   a  cardinal principle that,  in   the  levying  of the public? revenue  by   means  of a  customs tariff the duties .should be   imposed simply with the view of  collecting   the   necessarv    revenue    of    the  country, so as to pi oduce a  maximum  of revenue with a minimum of taxation,  and lo bear as lightly i'i> possible   upon  the people. ' i   '���������  That under, such ;v system manufactured goods coming from' abroad  should he especially selected for exemption is an assertion for which there'  [wver was the slightest shadow of  foundation, and one,the absurdity of  which defeats the veiy object for which  it was contemplated.  AS8ATS.  J. A. MacFarlane, F.C.S.,  Assayer and Mining Engineer,  62 1   HASTINGS ST., ,  VANCOUVER. B.C.  UN LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY  OF CANADA.:  Jilt.   I.MHMKit's  HBPLY.  .My Dear Mr. I3ei (ram,���������There can be  no ambiguity as to what   is  the   trade  pol'cv of the Liberal   paity,   as   it  was  placed before the country nearly three  years ago at, the ere.il Liberal, conv en-  t.iou which met at Ottawa in June. 1x0;.  The Oov eminent and their   siipporter.s  are now systemal ically 1 lying   to  i-oi.-  i'u-etbe   issue   by  attempting   (o'per-  suad" one class of  our j.o, ulai ion,   the  manufacturing class, llial our aim is to  introduce into I his country the JJrilisb  system of free trade, and    that  .such  a  system would be injurious,  even   fatal,  lo th.it class.    Whether a policy of absolute freedom of trade would or would  not. be injurious to the   manufacturing  industries of this count 1 y is a question  which I will ,'iol'siop to   discuss   here.  Then,1 is no occasion for such  a   discussion, as I he  intention   of   the   Liberal  party is not   ami   tuner   was   to   establish absolute free trade in this country.  The'quest ion'was discussed at  Ottawa,  hut, after anxious consideration',  vvhile  recognizing   the   superiority'  of     the  British system of freedom of  trade  as  an abstract   principle,   the  convention  came to the conclusion that, under the.  existing conditions of i>ur country, 'the  fiscal policy best adapted to its requirements, its economic situation, its enormous financial obligations, is a revenue  tariff; that is to  say.   a   tariff levying  our revenue   from   custom   duties,   th,.  basis of which   would   be   the  amount  necessary to carry on   the   business  ot  the country.'   Let, me quote   the' exact  wends of the language' adopted by  the  conv cut ion :���������  , "That the highest iniete.-ts of Canada demand a ren oval of this oli-teile  (Ihe present tariff) to our conn try'.-pi o-  gi-e-.s by the adoption of a sound fiscal  policy, which, while not doing injustice  lo any class, will promote domestic  and foreign trade, and hasten Ihe return of pr .spci It y to our people."  "That lo that end (Ik. tariff should  be reduced to the nc. d.s of hone-t.  economical and efllcienl.  government."  IJIt:-:i!AI>' POLICY  INDICATHD.  , While il is barely possible,to lay  down specifically and minutely the  particular articles which should he  included in such a tariff, certain broad  lines may be stated which ought, to  prevail. As far as practicable the  bunion of taxation ought, to weigh  equally "upon all classes, the only  exc- ���������pfion being'that;, articles ofcluxury,  should he moie heavily (axed, whereas  all the necessaries of life should be  more lightly taxed, ami as'nearly free  as possible, and even in many cases  en I irelv free. ���������  ft is also impossible to lay down even  approximately what should he the  rate elf the, tariff, it is quite certain  that ptihl c expenditure ought tci be  and cati be cons.derably reduced.' Yet  the enormous additions'_ which have  been made, by the Govermnent to our  hut dens make a return to the low tariff  of Ks7K a hopr"iiot to be seriously entet-  taineel. vvhile [confidently assert'"that  (he mere change of the system of taxation would afford te'i the' consumers  ample and substantial relief. You say  that, it, is "high lime that, both political  parlies come lo some understanding  regaidiug thi- future trade policy of  the' c;ountry." ", '" , '       '  This is a hop" which, I am, sorry to  say, it, is h.-u-diy possible, to indulge in  so long as the Conservative parly'remain in office.'  CLASS  LEGISLATION'.  One of   the   most    baneful .effects   of  what is,called the:  National   Policy   is,  as you well poinfout,   that  it  creates  rjass   legislation.    Toe ' Liberal    party  strongly urge    ipmi   tlie  consider-ition  of th" pe. 1.il.- in .bis con!est that, legis-  'afio.i sl.ould be   for   the    people   as ,a  whole, and that I h" granting   of  privileges in  -iny   class  can   never   be  conducive to the general .welfare.    This   is  well ilhisirutcd by the. universal desire  vvhich now exists, and has  existed  for  several years past,'in   the  entire  coin-  nunity. for a re-form of Lie tariff and a  ��������� eduction of the ra'\.ali.in.    indeed, I in-  ' x pros sin; 1 of 1 'ui j de-ire became atone  uine so sti ong   and   so   unive.-sai   thai  (he Govermnent underleiol; to attempt  what, they vvei e ph'.-t ,ed to calla reform  of the tariff.'  But, handicapped as I hey  were by the radical principle, in   which  they profess to believe,   their   attempt  has proved to be a   miserably  abortive  failure, and the operations of   their sri-  called reform-tariff   have   not   reduced  the burden of the? taxation   by  even   1  percent'. [  I submit also that, apart from the  community as a whole, 'the niauiifac-  lureVs have not only hot to   suffer  bill  All assays and analytical work done in  duplicate  with  Scrupulous personal care and dis-iiatcti.   \  ���������J-al-I2m  p   H.
