L'harlos Di!ke (Advanced Liberal;
raised a dlscussiou oa the fiscal views
recently enunciated by Colonial Secre
tary Chamberlain. The house was
crowded, and the United States charge
d'affaires, Mr. White, and ether for
eign reireseutatives were present
.Sir Charles maintained that Mr.
Chamberlain had su'ested a revolu
tionary change In the government'
policy, which was opposed to all the
traditions and to the opinions of au
overwhelming majority In parliament,
lie considered that while the policy of
the government as outlined at the re
cent colonial conference was danger
ous, It fell far short of the policy now
l'remler Balfour prefaced his reply
with the remark that Sir Charles Dilke
had attempted to make mischief be
tween the colonial secretary and him
self, but any such attempt would fall.
He contended that after the resolution
of the colonial conference Mr. Cham
berlain was liound to raise the subject
of preferential trade for public discus
sion. Mr. Balfour deprecated "waving
the ragged, mot.u eaten flags of either
the protectionist or free trade side In
the controversy, now ns far removed
as the poles from the controversy of
half a century ago."
Mar Have to Retaliate.
The premier then proceeded to argue
that the tendency was to raise a tariff
wall against British goods. Great
Britain, he said, must become more and
more dependent on foreign countries
for food and owing to exterior tariffs
would find herself compelled, to dispose
of tier exports on onerous terms, re
sulting in an enormous loss to the com
munity, lie therefore urged that the
time hud come when it should be pub
licly discussed whether the doctrine
that revenue was never to be raised
except for purposes of expenditure
mut not be abandoned.
The premier declared there was no
contradiction between the views of Mr.
Chamberlain and his own, but he de
fended the right of any minister to
freedom of speech. This fiscal ques
tion required the most careful exami
nation. He was not certain that the
scheme was practicable, but. unless
Some scheme was devised the empire
could not progress.

assist them in forming a benevolent
union If they desired to do so. All the
old men who apply as individuals will

I jJVomea may write about their ills to Mrs. Pinkham, and avoid the f I
resenation to her; she never breaks a confidence, and her advice is the best
in the world.
The questions asked of a woman by a male physician are embarrassing,
and often revolting to a sensitive nature. In consequence the whole truth is
not told ; this makes it difficult for female troubles to be successfully treated
even by the best physicians, and is the reason so many women grow worse
rather than better. A woman understands a woman better than a man,
there are symptoms which sick women have that a man cannot understand,
simply because he is a man, but the whole truth may be told to Mrs. Pinkham,
and her vast experience enables her to give advice which leads to a cure.
All women who suffer should secure Mrs. Pinkham's advice; it costs
nothing but a letter addressed to her at Lynn, Mass. Female troubles are real
troubles, and must be treated understanding. For a quarter of a century
Mrs. Pinkham's advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound have been
helping women to get strong and well, and her great file of letters prove that
more than a million women have been restored to health and strength by her
advice and her medicine when all other means have failed.
When you go to a druggist for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
do not let him persuade you to try something which he says is just as good ;
there is nothing just as good, because Mrs. Pinkham's medicine holds the record
for the largest number of cures of any female medicine in the world.
