The subject of reciprocity with Canada

promises to become still more interesting
to them in the near future. At the re- ,

and only some official intimation from

necessary in order to assure the success

large majority of the voters in Canada
are in favor of reciprocity. I
The passage by congress of the resolu- j
tion introduced in the house of represen-.
tativea by Mr. Hitt would serve as a great
stimulus to the growth of the reciprocity j
sentiment in Canada.
That resolution, which has been practi
ally adopted by Mr. Sherman in the sen
ate, is in the following words:
Resolved. That whenever it shall be duly cer
tified to the president of the United States that
the government of the Dominion of Canada has
declared a desire to enter into such commercial
arrangements with the United States as will re
sult in the complete removal of all duties upon
tsade between Canada and the United States, he
shall appoint three commissioners to meet those
who may be designated to represent the povern- I bosom.
iucui oi anaaa, 10 comuaer the oest method or
extending the trade relations between Canada
and the United States, and to ascertain on what
terms greater freedom of intercourse between
the two countries can best be secured, and said
commissioners shall report to the president,
who shall lay the report before congress.
The ad vantage of reciprocity for New
England were seen by Mr. Wiman to be
very great. If we had reciprocity with
Canada the position which New England
could assume as being a cheap manu
facturing center would place her, in
connx;tion with the foreign trade of the
world, in a very advantageous position.
Cheap gooils are the essential element of
foreign trade. Subsidies and reciprocity
with southern nationalities may do some
thing for the creation of foreign trade,
but no influence is so great for the ex
tension of commerce and competition
with European production for the sup
ply of the rest of the world as better
goods at cheaper prices than elsewhere
can lie furnished.
It is not to be supposed that complete
reciprocity with Canada can be had by
negotiating with England. It is only by
legislation on the part of the United
States and of Canada that reciprocity can
be established. Hence, Blaine's plan of
negotiating reciprocity treaties could not
be applied in th case of Canada.
Among the people of Canada a vast
majority of the electors are for an unre
stricted relation, so far as trade is con
cerned, between the two countries. If a
tender of reciprocity, in its fullest mean
ing, is made by the congress of the
United States no power on earth can
prevent its acceptance. The result would
be that trade would be as free between
the two countries as it is now between
the states of the Union or the provinces
of the Dominion, and a relation would
be created that, so far as trade and com
merce are concerned, would be just as
intimate, just as profitable and just as
far reaching in the development of re
sources on the one hand and of market
on the other as would result from a po
One way of treating the question of
reciprocity with Canada Ls very com
mon among protectionists. " vVhat!" they
say, "are we going to give a matter of
C3.000.000 poople for one of only 5,000,
000?'" But this, as Mr. Wiman says, is a
most impossible argument.
If it were carried out to its legitimate
extent Massachusetts and Rhode Island
would not trade with each other, because
Rhode Island has a small population and
small area compared with Massachu
setts. The size of the country is not the
question at issue. Besides this, the 5,000,
000 people in Canada will consume rela
tively as many manufactured gfod3 as
they will produce raw material offered.
Thns, if Nova Scotia should send iron
and coal and fish and potatoes and other
food products to Massachusetts, she
wonld take the same relative amount of
goods, of boots and shoes, collars and
cuffs, ots and pans, and other merchan
dise in exchange therefor. The measure
of their consumption would be the meas
ure of their production. If 5,000,000
could produce enough for 00,000,000 to
consume, and only took back what 5,000,
000 would require, there would be some
force in the argument that it is unwise
to trade with a smaller country.
As a matter of fact the Canadians are
today the best customers the United
States have, notwithstanding the high
tariff and equality of conditions so far as
competition from other countries is con
cerned. There is a still stronger way of stating
the objection to the assertion of the pro
tectionists that we cannot afford to give
a market of 03,000,000 for one of only
5,000,000. If, as the protectionists as
sume, the importation of foreign goods
be an unmixed evil, we with our 63,000,
000 ought to be able to mix a much
bitterer cup for Canada than she with
her 5,000,000 can possibly put to our
lips. If the size of the two countries is
to be considered an element in the ques
tion, we ought to be able to pour a
"flood of foreign goods" into Canada
twelve times greater .than their country
could send to us.
Our farmers have absolutely nothing
to fear from reciprocity with Canada,
the farm products sold by our farmers
in Canada, even while the old tariff law
was still in existence, were far greater
in value than the corresponding stream
coming from Canada,
