ROOSEVELT FOR RECIPROCITY PACT Three Times Indorsed Canadian Agreement in Public Speeches. SQUAftC DEAL it 0UE TAFT No Cholcs a* Between Candidates for Presidency On Thlt Issue—Roots velt Alio Declared Payne Tar^ Wf Law Seat Yst. Thenar* Roosevelt is on reeord three times In public speeches as in dorsing the Canadian reciprocity pol icy of President Taft This Issue la now dead through the failure of Can ada to ratify the trade agreement on the ground that the I'nlted States would derive the greatest benefit from Its provisions The fact remains, how ever, that the farmers of the countrv are not generally aware that Mr. Roosevelt so thoroughly approved of Canadian reciprocity when It was a live Issue. Canadian reciprocity was voted for by Republicans and TVmo crats alike when It was before con press and. as he*ween Mr Roosevelt and Mr Taft. In the present campaign for the Republican nomination for president, there Is no rholce on this Issue. In connection with his public utter ances on the tariff Mr Roosevelt has also Joined President Taft In saying that the Payne tariff law. while by no means perfect, is. nevertheless "the best tariff law yet passed by congress" under the old system of making such laws Of course President Taft and Mr Roosevelt are both now commit ted to the tariff commission plan of revising the tariff and Mr Roosevelt has given President Tafl credit for ad vocating this commission plan "from the beginning. Mr Roosevelt's publlr Indorsements of Canadian reciprocity were as fn' lows: In a speech at Oranl Rapids, N' Feb 1i. 1911. he said: "Here, friends In Michigan, right on the northern frontier. 1 have the pe cnliar right to say a word of congratu lation to you and to all of us upon the likelihood that we shall soon have closer reciprocal tariff and trade re latlona with the great nation to the north of us. I Applause.1 And I feel so pleased primarily because I wish to see the two peoples, the Canadian and the American peoples, drawn to gether by the closest ties on a footing of complete equality of Interest and mutual respect I Applause 1 I feel that it should he one of the cardinal policies of this republic to establish the very closest relations of good will and friendship with the Dominion of Canada" (Applause.) In a speech before the Republican Club of N'ew York city, delivered at the l.lncoln Day dinner at the Waldorf Hotel on Feb 13. 1911, he said: "1 want to say how glad I am at the way in which the members of the club here tonight responded to the two ap peals made to them to uphold the hands of President Taft. both In his effort to secure reciprocity with Can sda. and In his efTort to secure the fortification of the Panama Canal And In addition to what has been said shout reciprocity with Canada I would like to make this point: It should always he a cardlnnl point In our foreign policy to establish the closest and most friendly relations of equal resr^ and ndvantape with our great neigh.mr on the north And I hall the reciprocity arrangement be cause It represents an effort to bring about a closer, a more Intimate, a more friendly relationship of mutual advantage on equal terms between Canada and the I'nlted States. At Sioux city. Iowa, on September 8. 1010. Mr. Roosevelt said: "I was particularly pleased with what the president (Tafti said In his letter on the sublect of the tariff com mission. A number of senators and congressmen have for some years ad- i vocated this as the proper method of I deillng with the tariff, and 1 am gb'd that the country now seem* awak enod to the Idea that a tariff commis siori offers the only solution of the problem which Is both rational and Insures the absence of Jobbery The president (Taft) from the beginning advocated this commission. "There is another feature of the tariff law and points our course In the right direction, the maximum and minimum provision, arid here agalh I wish to point out that the value of the provision has depended largely upon the excellent work done by the ad ministration in the negotiations with the Dominion of Canada, which were th« most difficult of all. and yet In my eyes the most important, because I esteem It of vital consequence that we should always he on relations of the highest friendship and good will with our great and growing neighbor In the north." At Sioux Falls. South Dakota, on the same day. Mr Roosevelt discussed the tariff question In general, after having gone over his speech carefully with Senator Dolliver of Iowa, and in the course of his remnrks he said: "I thuik that the present tariff (Payne law) Is better than the last (Dingley law), and considerably bet ter than the one before the last (Mc Kinley law) but It has cerfalr.iy fail ed to give general satisfaction From these quotations from Mr. Rooeevelt's speeches It is, therefore, apparent that there can be no choice as between President Taft and Mr. Roosevelt on these Issues.
