Issue of Canadian reciprocity with the

The surprise is all the greater be

foreshadowed an opposite result, and
even the claims of the opponents
went no further than a victory by a
While the Canadian elections had
been ordered practically for the pur
pose of ratifying or rejecting the rec
iprocity agreement and the result
must be taken as primarily a decision
of that question, various other consid
erations enter Into It and help to
explain It. It is plain now that the
influence of Great Britain to keep
every part of the empire In commer
cial subservience is much more pow
erful in Canada than appears, on the
surface, and the enemies of reciproc
ity used with far-reaching effect the
fear of ultimate annexation, toward
which they told their people this
would be a step? ,
What will be the consequences in
this country of the rejection of rec
iprocity by Canada lies In the realm
of speculation. It Is our Judgment
that It will be very small, Just as we
believed the changes to be expected
from reciprocity were largely exag
gerated. Politically, President Taft's
position ought, if anything, to be
strengthened rather than weakened.
The acceptance of reciprocity by con
gress was a personal triumph of his,
and the refusal of Canada to complete
the bargain ought to reassure our
people that they were not getting
the worst of it. Of course, had
President Taft put it up to Premier
Laurier to secure Canadian ratifica
tion first, he might have been saved
much trouble, assuming that Canada
would 'have decided as it did.
The rejection of reciprocity also,
it seems to us, vindicates the presi
dent's vetoes of the democratic tariff
bills, whose only excuse was that
they were designed to make good to
the farmer what he was to lose by
reciprocity. The president can now
appeal still more forcibly for the co
operation of congress In scientific
tariff revision along lines td be laid
down by the tariff board.
Taft's Eeasons Are Sound.
The president's restatement of his
reasons for vetoing the three make
shift tariff bills put up to him by the
democrats and their insurgent allies
in the late session of congress is di
rect, frank and forceful, and will sat
isfy all who are not determined not
to be satisfied. He was and Is com
mitted to tariff revision along scien
tific lines. He had promised himself
and pledged the people to work for
that kind of revision. He says he
could not find it in any of the three
bills he vetoed "I could find no ar
gument which would satisfy my con
science." Yet he is denounced by his
critics for not smiting bis conscience
and stultifying himself by signing the
The opposition claims for Itself
the right to do what It calls keeping
faith with the people, but it denies
the same right to the president. The
American people have not strayed so
far from fundamental principles of
equal justice as to applaud or award
such unfairness as that. The coali
tionists in congress maintain they
were consistent In their tariff con
duct. The president insists he was.
The president had proposed and the
majority of the opposition had ap
proved. In the Sixty-first session, the

volved the 'tariff board and it was
this opposition, itself, which fixed
the date of the tariff board's report
ing December, 1911. The president
insisted on awaiting this board's re
port, the opposition on going ahead
without It. Who was consistent?
It Is too late for the democrats and
Insurgent republicans to make any
thing of that argument.
The president shows effectually
that the tariff bills put up to him
were hastily drawn. Ill-considered
and, while touted as popular meas
ures, never submitted to the people
or outsiae representatives for their
consideration, as Is customary. They
were thrown together in pancake

Frfll Stomach Lieht Heart.
The banquet board has Its place In
business, society, politics and even
diplomacy. As a bridge of peace it
naa spanned chasms of discord be
tween men and nations, and where no
discord reigned, it has promoted good
will and fostered friendship. It may
not be the highest compliment to bur
spiritual natures to ssy that they are

but It is a truth. A full stomach

each is in a much milder humor when
well fed. Hospitality Is never fully
expressed without the well-ladened
table. In this day of diplomacy, of
what, in every phase of life, we might
even call the virtue of deceit, the
and goodfellowship as the forerunner
snd complement of business snd re
sults. It is an entirely laudable custom.
It saves time in this busy -day and
soothes feelings, sometimes illy ani
mated. The very fact of men of op
posing ideas getting their feet under
the same table, partaking of the same
viands, in the demand thus made
upon common amenities, has its ef
fect as a non-irritant and with all
the possibilities of such an occasion
developed, becomes a prime factor in
hearty good will and peace. Why
could not the employer and employe,
in their disputes, adopt the banquet
board as an instrument of friendly
negotiation, at least? '
The Task of Reorganizing.
While peopie have talked for years
of dissolving trusts and compelling
them to bring their organizations
and operations within the purview of
law, only now, following Judicial di
rection, the most powerful of these
industrial organizations have been
dissolved, technically, and are trying
to reorganize on what will be ac
cepted as a legal basis. But they
are finding the task quite equal to
the acumen and skill that have made
them the great Institutions they are.
Reports say that counsel for the
Harvester trust and the government

satisfy it to the fullest extent. The
Steel trust, it is said, "is making
strenuous efforts to meet the de
mands of the government, but by
reason of the complexity of the situ

made." It is a formidable task and
a new one, to tear to pieces and build
up on an entirely different plan, such
gigantic combinations of Industry and
This, of course, strikes the lay
mind as more or less of an anomaly
and arouses some incredulity. People
have come so generally to question
every move of a great corporate com

believe there is anything in the line
of technical construction which they
cannot easily do. But thle is hardly
a fair view. In any event the diffi
culty of the task must suggest how

The old world is In a moat distressing

the Atlantic to the Bering sea. disaster,
famine, pestilence and human discontent
afflicts nations and people to a startltoj
degree, making the struggle for existence
uncommonly severe. Look at the map

slowly recovering from the distress snd
turmoil of a labor war, leaving in the

fear and fatigue, and is diligently raiding
churches and convents for armed con
