UEKET, Representative. TUHBDAT, MARCH 30, 1909. saarwtocrrT with canada A POSTHUMOUS PAPER. Elsewhere in this issue of the Far mer there appears an article on Recip rocity with Canada which was written several years ago by J. A. Bolles, then editor of the New Milford Gazette but ainoe deceased, and which now appears far the first time In print. Had the author foreseen the present tariff sit uation, he could not have treated it more pertinently. His reference to "outrageously protected trusts" Is par ticularly timely. The article is really exhaustive of its subject. Jj IN DEFENSE OF SHERIFF BLAWIJEY It appears that Sheriff Hawley did - " 1,1. tAvAvirisk in tYia fltv t contest, to a Macedonian appeal Senator Brandegee to exert himself ;lnfaror of the "Olds". According to the Sunday Herald, he even interfered In a toanbury Mayorial contest as a mean of aiding: the "Olds." The "YoungB" are strongly inclined to censure the Sheriff for meddling in affalss which, they say, do not legiti mately concern him. They assert that tie, being a voter in Brookfleld, should not Interfere in Bridgeport matters. It is very seldom the privilege of the Tanner to defend the Sheriff. In this we are literally compelled by the tlce, to do so. Is not Sheriff Hawley an Influential member of the Republican State ma- ! chine and. as such, obliged to inter fere for the adjustment of factional contests throughout the State? Is he . Wt the Republican County Boss, des pite the claims of Speaker Banks, and, -ear-each, compelled to take decisive part in all troubles within the party, whether in Bridgeport or Danbury, or elsewhere? Is he not a member of ' the Federal machine by virtue of hav ing, with the eleventh hour aid of Sen ator Bulkeley. re-elected Senator Brandegee? How could he. In view of these conditions, do otherwise than, to aid In the suppression of what he doubtless co nsiders an unreasonably combative minority in the Bridgeport Republican ranks. Engaged in run ning Federal, State and County ma- i int"ff. it la ever his imperative duty to spank any elements which may dare I to object to such domination. The Farmer pleads. In the Sheriff 'a behalf, that though he Is but a citl aen of a comparatively unimportant town, he la really charged with State wide duties, in the execution of which ha is fearless.

Automobile manufacture has. however, increased the labor demand in other directions. The loss upon the one-hand, and the gain upon the other, constitute one of the redlvisions of labor which Inevitably follow new dis coveries, new inventions, etc. A new objection to airships has been raised. lt Is that, when perfected, they may be used in smuggling. For instance, the new Federal rule against the importation of opium for other than medicinal purposes may be easily evaded, or diamonds and other'precious stones may be imported without pay ment of tariff duties. It is, however, rather early as yet to raise this objec tion. . -.. The Prohibitionists are making an earnest effort to prevent the levying of taxes upon either tea or coffee, and to substitute therefor an Increase of the tax on beer, from $1 to $2 a barrel. An argument in support of this plan is that the tocreased tax would fall up on the brewers and would not reach the consumers. Of course the Pro hibitionists are not using this argu te lor xneir tiit-it i 1 .hjc uuiu nai or a lax mree enuuen iu motions Dy increasing me brewers assert opos- In the matter of the absorption of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Austria, her Pre8ent Prosperous condition.

Great Britain and Russia. The last named having with drawn and conceded the claim of Aus tria. Servia is compelled to acquiesce, and thus the troublous question is set tled. There are other important re sults. Russia's position as a second rate power, resulting from war with Japan, is fixed for a time at least; Germany becomes the virtual arbiter of international disputes; France and Great Britain, deserted by Russia, be come "mere lookers-on in Venice." These positions are likely to continue until Russia, by a second and success ful war with Japan, resumes the for mer rank of a first-rate power. An inheritance tax is really a death tax. One who contemplates decease, voluntarily or otherwise, must recon cile himself to paying for the privilege of dying, provided he has succeeded in arenmulatinflr nronprtv. As he has mutations during life, and his estate must pay the regular taxes during the process of settlement, and his heirs must meet taxation upon receipt of their shares, it necessarily follows that an inheritance tax is a charge for the privilege of dying. There is one possible source of reve nue which seems to have been over looked by the searchers for new taxes. It may be called the "prospective in herltance tax" and is, in effect, a tax upon the privilege of birth.

RECIPROCITY WITH CANADA (Continued From Page Four.) market for her goods, and will pos sibly retaliate by discriminating against American products. "In accordance with the policy of the liberals, overtures were made by Can ada, looking to a reciprocity arrange ment; but they met with no encour agement. Early in February Sir Richard Cartwright, minister of Trade and Commerce, and Hon. L H. Da vies, minister of Marine and Fisheries, vis ited Washington to confer with the Republican leaders on the matter. They had been preceded in January by Messrs. Charlton and Far rax in an unofficial capacity." It is interesting to notice that the repulse which the overtures from Can ada, received from the United States induced the Dominion government to retaliate by discriminating against American products through the enact ment of the Preferential British Tariff of 187. Under this tariff duties on imports from the United Kingdom and not a few of its colonies were reduced 12 per cent. In 1898 this reduction was increased to 25 per cent, and in 1900 to 331-3 per cent., and has been continued at the latter rate to the present day. Nevertheless, in spite of the handicap of this preferential tariff, the exports of the United States to Canada have steadily and gratifyingly grown as can. be learned' from the sta tistics that appear in a statement sent put from Washington, D. C, in De cember, 1904, by the Department of Commerce and Labor, through its Bu reau of Statistics. The figures are Impressive. They show the size, im portance andi great increase in the trade between the two countries, the significant balance of trade in favor of the United States, and the very note worthy fact that during the operation of 'the preferential tariff the share which the United States supplies of the total imports into Canada has grown more rapidly than that of the United Kingdom, favored though It has been by a special, and considerable protection. . I It is "natural that contiguous coun tries should trade with each other more than they do with distant coun tries and the strength and persistency f.f this natural tendency are strikingly seeen in the commercial relations of Canada, and the United States. Not withstanding high protective and pref erential tariffs, jealousies, narrow mindedness, selfishness, stupidity, in a word, various kinds of discourage ments arid drawbacks, the natural ten dencies of trade have moved forward In their indomitable. Inevitable course. The goal Is freedom from tariff and all other artificial shackles which pre vent men and nations from dealing in the manner which, broadly considered, is the most advantageous to them all. The student of .history, of government, of economics, of sociology, would, in deed, toe discouraged, did he not reach the cheerful conclusion that through the toil, the misery, the injustice, the mistakes, the reactions, the painfully slow progress of the ages, the power of natural and moral law is never overcome and ever works unconquered toward what la better. The attitude of Canada during the period of which I have written was one which an unprejudiced spectator would praise. She excelled the United States in efforts to bring about reci procity and she did not wish the treaty of 1854 to be abrogated. After its abrogation she favored the estab lishment of closer and broader rela tions withthi s country until her over tures in 1897 were opposed by our government in such a manner that she became offended, if not disgust ed, and soon after retaliated by adopting the preferential duties which discriminated against the United States. We cannot particularly blame .oo-!,,.. . wi. , -' . uv V lllli. ai. 1 TTI fin.

Unless commercial reciprocity is soon obtained Canadian tariffs will un doubtedly be raised to approximately the level of our own, which will prac tically destroy commerce between the countries." It is a time when we should exer cise calm judfftnent. for the condi tions are now so rapidly changing that far-seeing men recognize that we shall oon neea more noerai traue arran-e- nts with Canada more than she will a ineiii wan ua. indful Of ithe rebuffs she has re- ceived from the United States "n wovemoer 1U4. George n,. os ter. M. P., from North Ontario, said: "Before I came to the banquet I was told that I would be expected to speak on reciprocity. What is abso lutely a dead question with us is very much alive with you. During my term of service with the Conservative party and while a member of the Canadian government, I made two or three pilgrimages to Washington and begged your senators and representa tives to grant us reciprocial trade re lations. I failed in my mission every time. And now that the question is dead with us it has been raised from Its grave by some of you Americans. Canada may be trusted to work out her own salvation without the aid of any reciprocal treaty wixn the United States." ' Such is the discouraging attitude of Canada at the very time when many people in New England as well as millers in the Northwest who desire Canadian wheat or making into flour favor putting our commerce with Canada on a more liberat basis. For the Eastern States the case is thus succinctly stated by the New York Times: "In New England the revolt agaiilst the burdens of the present tariff sys tem is more formidable because it is based on practical and Immediate in terest. That section of the country wishes to buy of Canada. It needs fuel and iron and lumber and wood pulp and other materials and requi sites of manufactures, and it is fined heavily if it seeks them In Canadian markets, where they can be had in exhaustless quantities and at relative- ly low Drices. An a manufacturing section its business has largely gone West with the movement of Dopula- aDly depends on the ability to eet ma- terials and fuel at low cost. Hence the Increasing earnestness of its bus iness men for the reduction of dutfes either directly or by reciprocity. Its interests are practically the same as those of all the seaboard states." William L. Douglass, the new gov ernor of Massachusetts, in his recent inaueural address, set forth cogent reasons why Massachusetts should re ceive the aid to be derived from a suitable reciprocity treaty with Cana da. It is reported that the farmers and merchants of Canada are quite strong ly in favor of negotiating a reciproci ty treaty with the United States. On the other hand, the manufacturers and politicians do not want it. No doubt if the question were made a leading issue there would also be a divided sentiment in the United States; for selfish and personal Interests are so much involved in all tariff matters that it is impossible to a-et nr an-v tariff plan for benefit in the broadest sense that will not be bitterly fought uy some, ine present situation is not I encouraging as it might be; but we can hope and believe that In time the majority or our people can be edueat e dto see that a liberal commercial policy would be better for both coun tries than the present one. To this end let careful consideration be given to the following weighty words of Gold win Smith: "Let any one scan the economical map of the North American continent, with its adjacent waters, mark its northern zone abound in minerals in bituminous, coal, in lumber, in ash, as well as in special farm products, brought in the north to hardier per fection, of all of which the southern people have need; then let him look to its southern regions, the natura. pro ducts of which, as well as the man ufactures produced in its wealthy cen tres of industry, are needed by the peo ple of the northern zone; he will see that the continent is an economic whole, and that to run a customs line athwart it and try to sever its mem bers from each other. Is to wage a des perate war against nature." 4 J. A. BOLLES. NOTE. In rne preparation of this article I am largely and particularly indebted for statistics and facts to tb,e valuable pamphlet entitled "The Re ciprocity Treaty with Canada of 1854," by Frederick E. Haynes, Ph.D., I am also indebted for not a little use ful information to the work called "Reciprocity," by Laughlln and Willis I have also consulted a number of pub lic documents, histories, newspaper ar ticles and other means for reference; and I have selected, condensed, ar ranged and combined, and have added new thought in such a manner that I trust I have presented the subject of reciprocity and our commercial rela tions with Canada in a way a good deal new and different from what it his been presented elsewhere. In considering facts and statistics the reader must bear in mind that Can ada as now constituted includes a far greater area of. territory than the country known as Canada previous to 1867. In that year the British, North American Act went into force and pro vided for the voluntary , union of the whole British North America into one legislative confederation. under the name of the Dominion of Canada; and most, if not all, of the old separate provinces now belong to the confed eration.

It is understood It is understood that a number of State police were in town on Sunday looking after any automobllists who might be exceeding the speed limit. This is in accordance with the wishes of the town, as expressed at the last town meeting. It is thought by those who have 'been studying the matter that most of the reckless speeders come from out of the State. Exact ly what Is reckless speeding depends upon circumstances. If there is ahead a long, clear stretch of road there are those who believe that a man may drive hi machine more than twenty five miles an hour and not contravene the spirit of the law. Next Thursday evening at Hope chapel, the young folks of Fairfield, who belong to the Christian Endeavor Society, will repeat the concert which they gave last week at the Congrega tional church.

Game Warden Smith called the at tention of the Farmer representative on Saturday to an effort which is be ing made in California by a man named Stuckentoruck, who hails from San Joaquin county, to have the Leg islature of that State pass a bill re moving protection from the meadow lark. It has passed the lower house a twice, tout the Audubon society is mak- a ! lng a strong effort to have the bill killed in the Senate. Mr. Smith says that the meadow lark Is the most use ful bird to the farmer and fruit grow er we have. The man Stuckentoruck makes the claim that this bird eats grapes, but the investigations of orni thologists show absolutely that mea dow larks are wholly beneficial and do not eat fruit of any sort. The de struction of grapes, of which complaint is made, is undoubtedly caused by wasps and yellow jackets, which punc ture the grapes and in this way give the honey bees an opportunity to as sist in the work of destruction. Even here i.n Connecticut, says Mr. Smith, some people would like to see the law taken off of meadow larks, and last fall several men were arrested' for shooting them on the meadows.
