Politics in Canada
IV.--The Annexation Bogie.
By Frederlo J. Haskln.
Ottawa--Does reciprocity mean an- lse
Snexatlon? 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

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 milk' Is ubstann
al ttslly the same as what, in the east,

the east sells for 15c per quart, occa
sionally at 12.e per qtuart. 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,

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.
