In this connection tt may he said that Immediately after Mi.

This was es- ; peclally true of members representl'ig rural constituencies. This conference araa fol-' tared for days by ciucis after caucus. ahile In the mean time ihe Opposition in , ths House cautiously and half-heartedly op. pesad the adoption of the agreement. ft ltnaoaly after many days ofronfel n?'< and a threatened revolt against Mr. Borden's' lead?! ship, In the course of which the pro- : prtetor of one of the <"onser\ativ( organs i personally voiced his approval of rerlprocl ! ty, that the le-ader of the Opposition man a_f*ed to get his followers into line to opporc the reciprocity pact.
