Canadian Farmers Want
Free Trade With U. S.
Cumnlo, Feb. 15.—The United Fir
: mers of Ontario have come out un
j reservedly in favor of free trade
j with the United States.
I The United Grain Growers and the
co-operative farmer organizations of
western Canada have demanded the
adoption pf the 1911 reciprocity"
agreement with the United Staje.
This agreement, which still stands
on the statute books of the United
States puts all foodstuffs, coal, lum
ber, cement, lubricating oils, and
farm maehineVy_ on' the free list.
Heretofore the fight on the ques
tion of free trade or protection in
Canada lias lined up the agricultural
West against the manufacturing
East. The United Farmers of On
tario is the first eastern organiza
! tlon with political power to ally it
! self with the West. Its endorsc
| ment of free trade is the first made
j by any organization since the "un
restricted reciprocity" election of
! 1891.

Fines Imposed on Parents
For School Law Violation
York Haven, Pa., Feb. 15.—A fine
and costs of prosecution were im
posed upon each of seven residents
of the Newberry township school
district recently by Justice of the
Peace John S. Fishel, of York
Haven, for having violated, it is
said, the- compulsory school attend
ance law as fixed by the Assembly
and stipulated in the school code.
The charges against the Newberry
township residents were preferred by
Edgar Whisler, secretary the dis
trict School Board.
When the parents failed to heed
the notice of the Board of Control
to send their children to school
more regularly, the only resort the
Board had was to bring the charges.
In each case the defendants paid the
fine and costs and promised to send
their children to school.

gradually brought about a contra
