hullt navy and In 1910 against a ?anadian
navy, but In favor of a cash contribution to
Kngland to build two nreailnought?. In this
connection tt may he said that Immediately
after Mi. Fielding; had introduced the red
procity measure In the House of t'onuii<>n
last January a hasty council of Killing
Conservative member.?? of Parliament ?a?
called by the leader of the Opposition to ;
consider the position to he taken Oa the :
question. At that ?"onfcretn e member after |
member state?! that hta constituency would
favor tho agreement because of the ad van- j
taget to he derived from It. 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

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.
Anti-American Sentiment Fanned.
The activity of the Opposition, under Mr. !
! Borden's leadership, la being concentrated j
on efforts to fan anti-American sentiment !
Ihe Fenian raids that ocurre.] before the'
a\cr;igc voter of to-day ?ver heard the
word reciprocity are being teferrrd to at
the meetings held alont the boundary line. !

Th? campaign f??r the most part Is lv?ing
fought out ?n the country rather than In
i the .-libs. The explanation I? simple. The
'cities are m-'Vrreprescntcd In Parllanv? I
Th. . ifv of Winnipeg, with a population of

A feature of the campaign that la
interest is th? continued reiteration of
chsrgea by the leading Opposition organ;

leved, S?d they ar?? not believed by
sane mer. then it la spparsnt that 'his cam?
paign will result in a great lnflu\ of good
America:: money into this country.
The one cre.it atrHdni feature of the
eampaiga is the U"k nt discussion by the
*'pposltlon of the reciprocity pact on Its
merits, devoid of extraneous matter such '
as appeaJa to prejudice or passion. The ,:
same thing was reserved during the ?lis- j
