THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1897.
As tho outcome of tho accession
of tho Liberals to power after
eighteen yearB in tho cold shudes
of opposition, tho Dominion of
Canada has made a chango in its
customs tariff of great importance.
Agreeablo to tho party platform, a
horizontal reduction of limited de
gree has been made, generally, in
customs duties. Though not going
far tho tariff changes aro in tho
direction of free trade, or, more
properly speaking, tariff for reve
nue purposes. Tho most important
provision in the new schedules,
howovor, is ono based on the
principlo of reciprocity. All
countries that will admit the
goods of Canada on equally favor
able terms aro to have their goods
admitted to Canada at duties
twelve and a half per cont. below
those of tho schedules. This is
admittedly designed to offer pre
ferential 'advantages to goods of
the Mother Country, especially
over thoso from the United States.
It serves the double purpose of
making an advance toward meeting
the Imperial federation views of
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain
and of making a reply to the
Dingloy tariff bill now before tho
United States Congress. It is a
big stroke of polioy both ways.
Canada stands fifth of all
countries in the foreign trade of
the United States, and tho balance
of trade has been largely against
her in transactions with that
country. Yot, as American publio
men and nowspapors have empha
sized, tho United States has hith
erto sot more storo by reciprocity
with South American countries,
that have had all tho benefits of
reciprocity their way, than by tho
proffer of reciprocal relations
from the great young nation on
its northern bordor. Tho extend
ing of her groatebt colony's hand
to her in fraternity, or per
haps rather in filial affec
tion it should be said,
has evoked a burst of enthusiasm
in Great Britain unparalleled in
tho colonial history of the Em
pire. It is anticipated that Prem
ier Laurier and Finance Minister
Fielding will be the horoos of the
colonial representation at the
Diamond Jubilee in London, in
consoquence of this bold stroke
for securing closer commercial re
lations with tho Mother Country.
An international question arises
with this preferential tariff, the
overlastiug "most favored nation
clauso" coming up. Great Britain
has old troaties with Germany
and Bolgium, whoroin it is stipu
lated that goods of thoso nations
shall not bo subject to heavier
duties, in any British colony, than
the goods of Great Britain horself.
Tho Liberal statesmen admit that
thero is such a question, but aro
ready to havo it tested. They
havo in the Cabinet ono of tho
ablest constitutional lawyers in
tho Empire, Oliver Mowat, who
had conducted tho government of
Ontario, tho promier province,
with tho greatest success for tnoro
than a generation. An unbrokon
succession of surpluses in tho
treasury marked tho wholo time
of his administration, and
in disputes with tho fodoral
government, over the constitu
tionality of provincial laws, ho
invariably triumphed upon tho
appeals to tho Judicial Committeo
of tho Privy Counoil, the highest
court of tho Empire It is held
by the Dominion Government that,
since the treaties referred to were
made, Canada has boon accorded
a position of com plo to fiscal inde
pendence Thorofore, if thoso
treaties are now pleaded to tho
compromise ot such independence,
it is not improbablo that tho
British Government will denounce
them and securo their rovision.
Furthor, it is pointed out that
Great Britain is not named in tho
tariff resolutions as receiving pre
ferential terms, but any country
that chooses to comply with the
conditions will recoivo similar
preference. It is indeed tho samo
feature as characterized tho re
ciprocity clauses of tho McKinley
bill. Moreover, ovou if the goods
of Germany and Belgium be ad
judged as entitled to tho prefer
ential rates, all tho importations
from thoso countries will not
inako a great deal of difference.
It would for the Liberal adminis
tration of Canada, at the most,
simply be an extension of tho
practical effect of its avowed prin
ciples of free trade. Should tho
United States accept tho implied
offer, also, there could have boon
no more expeditious means de
vised for gaining reciprocity with
that nation. This was indeed an
item in tho Liberal program upon
which the party succeeded trium
phantly to power. So far as the
preferential terms aro concerned,
thoy are now in effect with regard
to British goods. The accepted
practiso in Canada is that immo
diatoly upon tho delivery of tho
budget speech of the Finance
Minister, any changes in the tariff
therein announced go into effect
forthwith. If modifications bo
conceded by tho Government in
the course of deliberations upon
the tariff, these will take effect
whenever they are made. Thus,
upon the morning after Mr. Field
ing announced tho tariff polioy of
the Government, every custom
house in the Dominion, from
ocean to ocean, opened to pass
British goods at twolvo and a half
per cent, lower duties than wero
collectable upon the goodB of
other countries. As tho conditions
of equally favorable terms had al
ways been existent on the part of
tho Imperial Government, there
was no occasion for any negotia
tions toward effectuating tho de
sired reciprocity. The tariff mea
sure of tho Liberals cut tho ground
completely from uuder tho Con
servative party. After a few oppo
sition loaders bad wasted several
days in criticism holding nothing
but wind, the tariff resolutions
passed without a division. For
years the Conservatives have been
denouncing tho Liberal program,
in particular that part of it favor
ing reciprocity with the United
States,as anti-British, disloyal and
intended to promote annexation to
tho United States. They talked a
good lot about scouring preferen
tial trade with the Mother Coun
try, and did much mouthing of
Imperial Federation Leaguo
shibboleths. Thoir oppononts on
obtaining powor at ono stroke
give preferential trade to tho
Mother Country, yet without
yielding a mito of their opinion
that reciprocity with the great
nation bordering thoir oountry on
tho south would bo ono of tho
greatest possible achievoments.
There arc oxcollont articles in
tho Planters' Monthly for May.
One of them reiterates a faot that,
apparently, many of tho United
States people have yet to learn,
namely, that boot sugar will not
fill the bill of any country's sweet
necessaries. It cannot supplant
cane sugar for tho purposes of
fruit preserving and liko uses.
There will bo races at Mnui on
July i as usual. "
Tho Duo d'Aumalo, the most
famous member of tho Orloaus
family, is numbered among tho
victims, indireotly, of the holocaust
in Paris. News of tho death of
his niece, tho Duchess d'Alencon,
in tho fire produced a shook from
which ho died. The duke was tho
fourth son of King Louis Philippo,
and had attained 75 years of age.
Professor Henri Borgor will
havo beon a quarter of a century
at tho head of tho Hawaiian mili
tary band on tho second day of
Juno. Ho has beon the author of
a groat deal of pleaBiiro to tho
community, and always accommo

it. Not least iu value of his ser
vices has been the training of
nntivo Hawaiians a host of them

on his twontioth anuivorsary Horr
Bergor was given a popular ova
tion, in tho form of a grand com
plimentary concert. His round

marked recognition. Who will
