I sincerely hope that It will pass the senate and become u part of our statutes. ·This agreement. If It becomes n law, hn; no political significance.

Chicago. 111., .Feb. 16.--An urgent plea for the proposed reciprocity agreement between Canada and the United States was made tonight by James J. Hill at the Chicago Association of Commerce, at which 'he question was discussed. Mr. Hill said In part: "There ought not to be one vote In congress or one voice In the country against an arrangement worth more than isrmles usd navlvH, more In, dollars and cents than the acquisition nf other markets for which we are prepared to spend huge sums. Every man in. public life known or does not know the true value and effect of reciprocity. If he does not know, he Is not fit for the responsibility he assumes. If he does know, and yet opposes, he Is willing to sacrifice thft. jrnost Important Interests of his country 'and to close the greatest opportunity open to It In years Tor the sake of tome private, political advantage which h« believes can be won by' pandering to Ignorant prejudice. Elvery such man should be publicly . judged, condemned and .sent to the rear. "Opposition to tiie proposed Canadian' pact comes from three sources;" said Mr. Hill, "two of which," he continued, "may be summarily disposed of. Such ot tiie monopolistic combinations as find their, power to overcharge the people Imperiled by reciprocity naturally are against It. The lumber Interests, more liberally treated In the new tariff than necessary, protest against cheaper building material for our people. The paper combine, the one dissolved by the federal courts and now always under suspicion, dares to appear at Washington and fight the treaty These and all similar objectors are entitled to no consideration., "As little worthy to be heard are the men In public lite who regard this measure an merely a grindstone on which to whet the ax of political fortune. Many ot these are eagerly denouncing the treaty offhand In the belief that they can first create a prejudice and then prosper by catering to It. It Is one of the familiar and meanest policies of the demagogue. "To. this despicable scheme are due nearly all tho objections raised anywhere by the agricultural Interests. There has not been one objection made or fear stated, so far as the American farmer Is concerned, to complete : reciprocity In farm products which Is not provra groundless by the' government Ottawa, Feb. 15. -- There was considerable Interest and some Irritation h*re today over Champ Clark s speech In which he said the reciprocity agreement was the first step toward annexation. At the opening of today's session of the house Colonel Sam Hughes asked If It was a falr|«tateinent of the American attitude a n d l f so Inquired if the Canadian government leaders were prepared to withdraw from the reciprocity arrangement. Sir Wilfrid Laurler said the government had no Information on the subject, that the Canadian government had announced its policy and would not change It till It had more Information. W. D.
