mora a tdn than the coat of production
In Canada with Its newer mllla, and that
this IR Is Just about the difference between
the coat of pulpwood In the United States
and the cost of pulpwood In Canada.
"It aeema fairly reaaonahle to suppose,
too. that the pulpwood, which only grown
north of the forty-fifth decree of latltlude.
will be exhausted In the United States or
remain In the control of a few persons,
because of the drain of the United 8tatm
mills. It la of the highest Importance,
therefore.- not only to the consumers, but
to the manufacturers of print paper, In
order that .they may secure their raw ma
terial at a reasonable price, to secure a
letting down of the bars In Canada for
the exportation of pulpwood.
Inducement to Provinces.
"In ordrr to Induce the Canadian prov
inces, over whom the Dominion can exer
cise no control, to lift the restrictions on
the export of their pulpwood It Is pro
vided that when paper Is made In Canada
from wood Vrown on land not under ex
port restriction the paper may come Into
the United States free; and It is hoped the
difference of $5.75 between the duty on
paper from restricted wood and no duty
on paper made from unrestricted wood
will Induce the provinces to lift their re
"It is thus apparent that while a small
amount of paper may come In free Into the
United State under the existing tariff,
the paper made from nine-tenths of the
pulpwood of Canada will pay a duty of
16.76. It seems to me that this Is treat
ing the paper manufacturers of the United
States fairly. It la a provision calculated
to secure to them a source of supply
where they can get their wood at 15 a
ton less than In this oountry, with the dis
advantage of a small competition of paper
made In Canada from Canadian - wood
upon which there Is no restriction. It Is
a provision looking far Into the future
and which we all hope may create a con
dition of absolutely free trade In paper
and Its materials, a condition that candid
and sagacious paper manufacturers will
admit Is the best thing for the Industry,
as it certainly Is for the consumers.
Woald Repreaeat Farmers.
"The third class of opponents to the bill

United States. This, of course, la a much
more formidable opposition than the spe

ture of print twner and In nth.-
twee, cannot escape the attention of the
public. How Is the farmer to be affected
by Canadian reciprocity and free trade
In agricultural products T Canada la so far
north that Its .agricultural products are
limited to i wheat, rye, barley, oats, pota
toes, live cattle, horses and dairy products
It cannot and does not raise more than
one-sixth of of 1 per cent of the com crop
of the United States. ,
"It raises no cotton. It raises but few
vegetables: It raise, but few hogs, because
he has not the corn to feed them with
It la at present a treat Importer of all
fruits, citrous and otherwise, from the
United States; It Imports a large amount of
cotton seed oil. which, by the Canadian
reciprocity treaty, Is now made free.
Canaet ratten Cattle.
"It cannot fatten cattle as they are fat
tened in the United States, and therefore.
It has become profitable for farmers to
Import young cattle frpm Canada even
with the duty upon them and to fatten them
for the Chicago market. '
"The United State Imports Into Canada
a great many more home than she ex
ports from the Canadians. he sends to
Canada a much larger amount of potatoes
than she receives from her. The United
States Imports Into Canada about fifteen
times) aa much meat and dairy products
as Canada .Imports Into the United StaTea.
"The only -real Importation of agricul
tural products that we may expect from
Canada, of any considerable amount will
consist of 'wheat, barley, rye and oats.
The world frlce of these four cereals Is
fixed abroad, where the surplus from the
producing countries Is disposed of and Is
little affected ty the place from whloh
the supply Is recetved. Canadian wheat
nets perhaps 10 cents less a bushel to the
producer than wheat grown In the Da
kota or In Minnesota, due to the fact that
the cost of exporting that wheat and
warehousing It and marketing It In Liver
pool Is considerably greater than the coat
to the Dakota farmer of disposing of his
wheat to the- millers of Minneapolis or
ending It abroad.
Wheat Will Became rioar.
"If now the duty is to be taken off
wheat and the Canadian wheat can come
to the millers of Minneapolis and other
place It ran and will be made Into flour.
because the capacity of the United States
mill la a per cent greater than 1 needed
to mill the wheat of thla country, Cana
dian, wheat can be Imported and ground
Into flour without materially reducing the
demand for or price of United States
wheat and the surplus will be sent abroad
The prloe of Canadian wheat will doubt
lea be Increased a few cents by accea
te the market nearer at band, but aocees
to the market nearer at hand will not re
duce the price of hi wheat to the United
States farmer for the reason stated.
"A material benefit to all the farmer
of the country, especially the stock and
cattle raiser and the dairy farmer, will
be the by-product of bran and short
from the flour mills likely te follow the
free export of wheat from Caned to those
mills. Thj by-product are now o
scarce and so' high priced that many
farmer are unable te procure them.
"What I true of wheat I true of the
other cereals. The trade between Canada
and th United State cannot but Increase

Members of Claee tiather Attain for

Five Years of Aosemce
A quarter of a century In one position in
the public schools was the cause of a sur
prise party upon Mre. Mary H. Newton,
principal of the Caetellar school, yexterdav
afternoon. Members of the first elan that
was graduated from the Institution called
upon Mrs. Newton In a body to celebrate
her term of ecrvlce. Before they left, the
veteran teacher was presented with a dia

then new Caatellar school in 1SS6. after
eleven years of teaching service. The pu
pils who gathered there yeeterday were
the first class Kent up from the grammar
W. fi. Ptryker presented the gift to Mre.
Newton on behalf of the clan. It was a
tender scene aa the old teacher, who still
Is young, responded with a voice that
broke now and then with the feeling under
which ahe was laboring.
Old Crowd Gathers.
The members of the old pupil band gath
ered In "Mrs. Newton' room." Knees
crowded a little closer, and elbows hung
farther over the edges of the desks than
formerly, but a roll call would have
sounded the same aa that of a quarter of
a century pasU That Is, If the changes
In the names of the girl were excepted.
"Children, I can't help calling you chil
dren," said Mrs. Newton, "for you still
are youngster of the olden day It does
not keem like twenty-flye year to me.
The time ha passed quickly, and many
face have looked at me from thosb seats
that you now occupy. But I cannot erase
the lmpreeslon that you once made. Tou
were my first-class when I became prin
cipal here, asd those memories are' Indeli
ble." Mrs. Newton paused. A tear started, and
than anothe:. The little woman In a plain
black frock was nearly overcome with
"Tou gave me this pin," she murmured,
fingering the brooch. "I never wore one
than they now reach In many Instances.
The trade will be benefloial to both the
seller and the buyer. It will not. In my
Judgment, reduce the price of wheat or
other farming product for our people In
any marked way. It will, however, by
enlarging the source of supply, prevent
undue fluctuation and It will and ought
to prevent an exorbitant Increase in the
prloe of farm products, which, as they
have been for the last two or three years,
have Inured greatly to the profit of all
engaged In agriculture.
"I have been attacked on the floor of
the house and elsewhere a occupying an
Inconsistent position. It ha been said that
have urged the reciprocity agreement
with the idea of lowering the cost of living
on the one hand and then have asserted
that the farmers will not be Injured by
reductions In the price at which they sell
their products d'n the other hand. It Is
asked, Is it possible te reduce .the cost of
living on the one hand and maintain the
present price of farm product on the
"My own Impression Is that the cost of
farm product I determined by the world'
supply and not by local conditions or
tariff or otherwise and that so long as the
movement toward manufacturing and away
from the farms continues and the supply
of farm laborer I reduced a continuance
of high price for farm product 1 in
evitable. But I do think that reciprocity
will enlarge the reservoir or the supply of
farm products for our people and thus
prevent undue enhancement of prloe be
yond the present standard. If this be the
ease then neither the farmer will be In-1
Jured nor will prices Increase.
"The argument is made, however, that
to give free trade to the Canadian farmer
In farm products so aa to permit htm to
enjoy th markets of the United States
Is to give him an advantage over our own
farmers, who, living behind a high tariff
wall, have to pay a great deal more for the
coat of living than do Canadian farmer,
whose protective system is not so prohibi
tive. With respect to this argument all I
have to say Is that It la not true.
Ltvlnc Not Higher Her. "
"The average cost of living In the United
States la not higher than It 1 In Canada.
This Is conclusively shown by two facts
first, that In spit of the preference given
to English product Imported Into Canada,
the duty being S3 per cent lea than that
Imposed on goods from other countries, the
United State exports Into Canada
000.0IM of good of the widest variety of
manufactures, all of these entering Into
the cost of living, while Canada, with
preference In favor of England, Import

"It la said th farm land In Ohio, Indiana.

1 a most Important element in the value
of farm land. Then the natural change
In farming In this country Is from the
raising of grain and other cereals for ex
port to the raising of grain for farm con
sumption and development of the secondary
products In the form of cattle and hogs.
The live cattle are bought and fattened.
The hogs are raised and fed. It la farm
ing of thla kind that explain the high
value of farm lands In Illinois and Iowa
and other states. In 1900 the "arm land
value In North Dakota was SU.9 an acre.
In South Dakota $9 92, In Kansas $1217, In
Nebraska, IK.Z7. At thfc same time th
value of farm lands In Iowa was $36.35, In
Illinois $46.17, In Indiana $31.61. In Michigan
$34.12, In Wisconsin $26.71 and In Minnesota
"If the argument as to the disastrous
effect of admitting the crops of the Canad
ian northwest to our markets upon the
values of our farm land Is correct then
the opening of lands In Kansas, Nebraska
and the two Dakotas in the two decades
from 1890 to 1910 should have had a similar
effect upon the land of the older states.
Now. what was the fact? What was the
effect upon the farm lands on the older
states of the competition of these newer
states? The land In the older states be
came more devoted to corn and cattle and
hogs, while the wheat and other cereals
were left to the newer lands. The effect
was that the value of the land In the older
farming state In most cases were more
than doubled and the census report of
1910 show the average farm value by the
acre In Illinois to be $; In Iowa, $S3; In
Indiana, $62; In Michigan. $31; In Wisconsin,
$43, and In Minnesota, $37. The year book
Of Canada shows tho average farm values
by the acre in the provinces of Manitoba.
Saskatchewan and Alberta to be $2&.94,
$21.64 and $20.46, respectively, in 1909. The
difference In the value of the acre between
Manitoba and Wisconsin I $. between
Wisconsin and Illinois It Is $2, between
Wisconsin and Iowa It Is $40 and between
Michigan.. nd Indiana It I $21.

"I do not advocate this treaty In view
of It benefit to the United States alone,
but because I am- sure It would be bene
ficial to Canada also. If I did not think
o my earnestness and enthusiasm for the
treaty would be much abated, not that I
have as much Interest in Canada as I have
In the people of the United States,' for I
haven't reached that altrujetio point, but
because no such agreement can become
permanent unless It does result In common
benefit to both countries, and if this were
a Jug-handled arrangement. If all the bene
fits were to accrue to the United States
and none to Canada, then aa the treaty
might be repealed at any time we could
look forward to Its early abrogation by the
Canadian authorities. It is because I am
