That Is the question asked MI of the voters in Canada in this excit- oC I n compalign. if a majority of them Eti cann be conli'wed that this question sp can be answerdi in the affirmative, ipr I then thie coneirt'.,ttti(v will wilt, the Im Laturier government will he defeated, tai the recalprocity pact will fall and-the $,e Maple Leaf Forever! For it is as th certain as anything in politics can be KI certain that the people of Canada do co not desire annexation to the United th States. Neither this fact nor the rea sons set forward in support of this , r attitude may he construed as flatter- du ing to American prlde, but the fact m remains. ro On the other hand, an overwhelming op majority of the people of Canada have en believed for several generations that R_ reelproclty with the United States Al would be a good thing. The great co tory leader, Sir John Macdonald and th the great grit leader, George Drown, in both taught the fathers of this gen- p, r oration that reciprocity was good. The pr - present leaders of both parties have th y praised it as something most demir- lo, able. Now comes the time when the leaders of one party are forced, for to r various and sundry reasons, to oppose te reciproolty, And aince hy their own ar mouths they have proved It to be fim- er cally advantageous and economically bt sound, they are compelled to find spme p, a extraneous reason for their opposi- th n tion. th Hence the annexation bogle. Mr. n Borden and the other responsible lead- th erl of the opposition are not willing A to say in so many words that reel- v r procity means annexation. They leave that for their supporting press and for rc their less prominent lieutenants. But tr Mr. Borden frankly basee his oppome- ni tlon to reciprocity rather upon political to I. than economlo grounds. a In him campsl.gt speeches Mr. Bor- cl , den has said repeatedly that the eco- fE nomic side of the reciprocity question m is of leos importance than the consid- .si eration of its effect on Canada's free- tr dom and the British connection. fj "And," he said, "t 'we submit our- t selves to comnaqr al vashalage with p the United Statlb -tty man can know "I Y what the result will be." It is not a g, n far cry from this dignified statement pi to the wild passion of the campaign ''( versiole: "Would you swap a silken flag, A t For a spangled cotton rag?" ti The.' same sentiment underlies both. t. The conservative 'ampaign against tc SreclpOolty is ha' ed upon persuading si the .eople that reclproeitl means coin- ir m me al union, financial absorption and tc f" ina y political anncxation of Canada ir d by the United States. The conserva- p. n tivle back up these statements with n liltral quotations from eminent a A nerlcans--Preeldent .Taft, Speaker ce ' '.iark and others. d In bis message to congress on Jan- e 4 usry Is, and in a speech in New York ti on April 37, President Taft gave ut- I terance to sentences much quoted by I, conservatives in the Canadian cam- ti 'e paign, albeit quoted entirely out of t t- their context and distorted to mean t1 sy something that President Taft had no t is Intention of saying. The president u i- was discussing the growth of the idea E If Of a British imperial tariff system, an All-Red Zollverein, and declared that 6 if the United Statqs was nott to be b is shut off from Canada by this imperial c Pr tariff system It must act now, or I- words to that effect. HIs position was t to agreed to at the time by most of those I in who favored his reciprootty ideas, al- t though some persons thought that the g jmnminence of the British imperial il tariff system might have been exag- 1 t" gerated in his mind. Nobody at the is time credited him with designs upon r- tho independence of Canada. In the message Mr. Taft said: "They (Ca nadians) are coming to the parting of id the ways." In the speech he said: ' "The bond uniting the Dominion with ih the mother country is light and al Soinaot imperceptible." Both timnes he was talking of the tariff, and the tariff only. ig These statements of the president 'n are used In every conservative speech. Id are kept standing in many anti-reel Ito roclty nowspalprs, and are used more generally, strange as it may 5sMm, to holster up the annexation Ibogo oven in than Champ Clark's boldly expressed 1. hope that the stars and stripes might ee one day wave over all the territory from Mexico to the north pole. For example, In a speech delivered ý. at Montreal, Mr. Borden, after saying re the economic question in the reciproc p. Ity issue was of secondary Inlmprtance, declared: "If we enter upon this treaty we C. shall not do so without wwrnlng. The Irl preldent of the United States d- hrn made that plain. I do not think the ruler of a friendly people, ever addressed such a warning as has beenI y- addressed by the president of the II- United States. It is useless, as some ld Ilberal journals do, to pretend that when Mr. Taut spoke of tile partings of the ways lhe had nothing In mind en but a commercilal treaty, because Bhie he words indicate that there is all unal terablo idea that when we onlce get this treaty, we shall enter upon first, en comnimerclal union, and end by absorp. Its tlon. He said that Canada has conme to thile parting of the ways. In his speech at New York, he aded to it the in statement that the bonds which unite its Oanada to the mother country are al most lmperceptible. He said there were forces whlich sought to make it Canada part of a commnerotal band r- reaching to Enllilhtnd, around the world, anmid buack to Ungland aguln, and he called upon the people of the nd United states tu saco that the treaty war made at once, in order that Can ada might never be part of that coin ry mercial band. "What did Mr. Taft's words mean? They mean that this treaty Is de lgned by himself and other great statesmen In the United States as a a. means of preventing the conaslidation s. of the Britlish empire as far as Can IIl ada is concerned." the This is the annexation bogle in its of calmet aspect. When lesser lights 0l- than the le6der of Dii mnajesty's loyal Ies, opposition Q4let!e the IubJeot the' as sert without reservation that the reci procity scheme was fixed up by the Washington governfnent at the beheet of the huge "trttsts" of the United' States, that it was forced upon the! spinehlss Laurler gbvernment as a price of the withdrawal of the max imum duties of the Payne-Aldrich tariff law, that it was conceived in selfishness and born in greed, and that he who votes for it is disloyal to King George and an enemy of his country! Oh, it is a pretty picture' they paint! The American "trusts" play a full ntart In the campaign. It was charged during the time the reciprocity agree ment was pending in the American congress that "the interests" were opposed to it. When the Canadian campaign first opened the liberals gave circulation to the rumor that American gold, contributed by the corrupt and corrupting "interests" of the United States, had been poured into the coffers of the conservative party to be used in defeating reel proclty on the north side of the line, the fight at Washington having been lost. Immediately the conservatives coun tered with the charge that "the in terests" and other Americans were actually contributing funds to the lib eral war chest with the purpose of buying votes in Canada for the reel procity pact with the ultimate object that ('anada might become a vassal of the United States. One conservative newspaper offered a $25,000 reward for the men who were bringing over the F American dollars with which to buy votes for recIprocity. I Whether either aide has soliclted, r received or accepted campaign con tributions from the United States may not be said with certainty, but cer I tainly each side has accused the other and each has vociferously denied the charge. However, proof has been of fered. The quality of this "proof" t may be open to question. One paper said that "the interests" were con - tributing to the liberal funds, and of fered as proof that "the interests" favored reciproclty the fact that the pact was assented to by the senate "which represents the trusts in the i government at Washington." Another t paper, on the other side. "proved" that 1 "the Interests" were spending money against reciprocity by quoting from American Journals of the muck-raking type. I The liberals have been endeavoring t to pooh-pooh the annexation bogie, to I support the reciprocity pact on its - merits as an economic question, and I to acquit the United States of ulterior a motives in the premises. But the op position has succeeded In making an h nexation a question In the campaign, t at least to the extent that liberal r candidates are forced into making declarations of their Inyalty to the empire and their unlterable opposi k tion to any kind of union with the United States, commercial or political. y Indeed, wise old Sir Wllfrld made - this point clear from the first, as he -f told President Taft and the world, at n the very heginning of the negotiations, o that the reciprocal relations agreed it upon must always be secondary to the a British preference. n But those who hop$ to make votes Lt by shaking the bogsi of annexation /e before the people have the advantage li of appealing to the flag, of making |r whoop-la speeches and of yanking the is tall feathers of the Yankee eagle. That ie is why ro much is said of loyalty in 1- Canada today, and that is why the ie Tories from Halifax to Vancouver are ti singing as they never sang before "- The Maple Leaf Forever. ie Tomorrowv-Politics in candda. in te rI AS TO MILK IEditor Mlssoullan: On Friday the 8th inst., there ap 0 peared in your paper an article en titled "A Milk Trust (?)," in which the bald and unqualified assertion was made by the contributor, Americanus e Clvis, to the effect that milk prices had advanced 20 per cent within the n last two years, whereas by reason of d the excellent food stuffs now to be had ,t at reasonable prices and the bbounti ful supply of "labor" there should be, he states, a reduction in' the prices. d The charges that are made against the g milkmen are serious In nature and the public is entitled to know the facts IWe concede that your contributor was in the best of faith, and earnestly seeking to ascertain the real caude, if a any, in the rise in prices. 'Now, as a matter of fact the little k reduction in the prices of foodstuffs r pasturage, and the price of labor have very little, if anything, to do with the present price of milk, The actual increase in price is lc per quart. One year ago the dairy cows were not ao positively subjected to the tuberculin test as Is now required under the law of 1911. As conditions now exist, as I- veterinary and health inspections are made, as additional requirements and penalties are imposed upon milkmen. likewise also additional cost of m. " stalling and maintaining a dairy of 1e necessity arise. l'or example: A much is cow is worth from $60 to $75. One 'e farmer had seven eows, and five of to them were condemltlicl. No compensa tlon was made to the farmer. Another re has more than 25 cows condemned: a e loss of not less than $1,200 to $1,100. Id Without the actual test no one can he determine whether or not a cow is in fid ected. The very sleekest, fattest and 1e best looking cow is the one most likely t' to be subject thereto, 1 In addition to this new hasard and ý* uncertain loss, there are additional ex penses to b. in.lurred in housing, 1? feeding and for care of the cows. One e- cent per quart a iih wt compensate for at the new risk imposed. If our milk is a too high why do nlot outside dairies n ship in milk, as they once and until n- lately did? The answer is simply this: They cannot meet the require ta ments of the law and 0ell as ohesplT is as we do here.

Our price here Js oiC for single quarts, and cheaper for lirger quantities. Nor is this ail. Two years ago the milk funrnishled was not tested, and consequently not so pure and health ful as the milk of today. The Infant and the "youngster" of today are not subjected to the risk and dlnger that they formerly were. T)o parents dis likeo to pay a cent more for tested milk., than for the former and dangerous article? Why have so many small milkmen gone out of the business re cently, if prices are too high? The answer is hIre plain, also: They could not afford to have their vows tested under the new law, and t\'vo perhaps more than a majority v. them con demned and killed. Smine dairymen are now shipping their mtulch cows from the east, having them tested there and here on arrival, paying the extra expense of freight and running others risks, to meet tile demands of the new law-the law which is mak ing for the health of the people, arid insuring absolutely pure and safe milk for the infants and others. We respectfully invite our friend, American, to investigate carefully all of the facts and we are certain that he will reach the conclusion that, un der present conditions, milk is, in view of Its purity and of the increasedt costs, cheaper than before instead of being, as he states, dearer, Respectfully, tMILKMAN, Missoula, Sept. 11, 1911. 1 NO TROUBLE.

Two Ways A L a Angeles le g:e l. is uing dougllnuts as argo ments for suftl rag which is to be voted on in Call. furnia next October. L)oughnuts-nice large dough nuts, such as mother used to make: coffee-large cups, are served at picnics in the park to all who wear the golden badge at suffrage. Our English cousins may think we lack zeal be cause we do not go to Jail. But their plan of suffra getting mystified me until I heard M rs. Cobden-Sanderson say that It is tlhe practice in English politics to use mock violence to arouse enthusiasm for a cause; and then, she said, Englishmen are so staid we just have to break the law to make them holleve we are in earnest. .There is no such precedent in the United States. Our forefathers threw tea overboard, but that was revolution. The least evidence of physical vip lation of law is looked upon by us as riot and mob. Furthermore in this country it is tho women rather than the men who need heckling. In Wis cnsin and California, and I believe in other states, pending amendments reflect the judgmlent of enlightened and progressive men who regard co suffrage as a natural evolution qf an advancing civilization. It in no way lessens our obligation to the noble band of pioneer women -whose lives of sacrifice in devotion to principle far outrival the incon venience of a few months in prison-that the abstract right for which they contended is now conceded, and that only the expediency of woman suffrage is today at issue. But methods should be adapted to conditions.; and coffee and doughnuts, just to convince those men-and those women-who still helieve an interest in good government inconsistent with good home cooking, fits the American situation better than brickbats.
