BKMETT'S KFFOHTS At the outset h stated that Mr. Bennett was trying "to create, fear In ths minds of ths people of Ontario that ths government which has so successfully administered the affairs of Canada for the last eight years will not be able to meet a new situation which he fear, has arisen." "No situation has arisen aurlni ths past eight years that ha. not been satisfactorily met," proceeded Mr. Malcolm. "Nof do I believe the penpl. ol Csnailn fenr thRt should a chang. be mads In ths American fiscal policy detrimental to Canadian Interests, ths government Is not pre. pared to meet it."

"Does Mr. Bennett propos. t alter the decision of a former government and put on a duly on tractors?" asked Mr. Malcolm. "Does he propose to tell the agricultural Industry, the mining; Industry and the fishing Industry that If he In elected, in order to stop thess Importations from ths United States he will raise ths duty on these Implements of production?
