The Chicago Iltcord-llerald, Inde
pendent republican, is urging with all
its might that the United States gov
ernment not delay in meeting the de
mand (or a commercial arrangement
with Canada which will permit freer
trade between that country and this.
The Chicago paper says the opportuni
ty to secure commercial reciprocity
will not last forever. There is a grow
ing d:spos tioa in Canada to raise the
tariffs agaiust the United States in
the event the people of this country re
fuse to make reduct ions inCanada'sfavoi .
In fact, there has been a gradual raise
In Canadian duties for years and the
spirit of retaliation is taking hold of
the people.
!t is urged that there are great in
terests in the I'uited States oppo
sed to any reduction in the taritT or to
closer communication with Canada.
Of course there are. There are great
interests in the I'nited States which
are opposed to the construction of the
I'anama canal, to the regulation of j
the trusts or to any other action that
will interfere with their monopolies.
Those business men in the
I'nited States who are opposed
to the Canadian reciprocity aie
opposed to the removal of any of
the res- raims which hold the trade of
tl e country in narrow channels which
they contiol. They desire to shut
off couit eti ion because they want to1
retnin heir grasp upon the throasj
of the coosutr.' s and to shut out anyone
trom competing with them.

States and t a:iada and wise reductions
