CANADA AND PREFERENTIAL. TRADE. Speaking at a dinner given at the Ottawa Canadian Club on Sunday night, Mr. Alfred Moseley said that in a conversation he had had with Sir Wilfrid Laurier the Premier declared that Canada was not only prepared to continue, but also to increase, the preference granted to goods manu- factured in Great Britain, provided that the arrangement was not a one-sided one, and that in return Great Britain gave Canada preference in agricultural products. The time had come, said Sir Wilfrid, for Great Britain to show her band. My reply," said Mr. Moseley, was that Canada had spoken plainly, but that unfortunately the digni- ilea silence you. have hitherto maintained on the subject is construed in Great Britain as lukewarm- ness, whereas I find that feeling in Canada is really strong in favour of preferential trade." Mr. R. L. Borden, the leader of the Opposition in the Dominion House of Commons, alluding to Lord Rosebery's ascription of his defeat in the elections in Nova Scotia to his advocacy of preferential trade, declared that his defeat had no more to do with his views on that question than Lord Rose- bery's solitary, if not eccentric, ploughing had to do with the grain crops in the North-West. Sir Frederick Borden, the Canadian Minister of Militia, agreed that advocacy of Mr. Chamber- lain's policy had not contributed to his friend's defeat in the elections; but stated that he did not himself consider preferential trade to be within the range of practical politics. He thought the true policy would be to go on developing the colony, and that trade arrangements would work themselves out without bickering and turmoil about tariffs, which would not increase Canadian loyalty.
