Scope and Contents

Letter from Professor Goldwin Smith (The Grange, Toronto, [Canada]) to WSC enclosing a cutting on Free Trade from the Winnipeg Tribune [not present] and stating that he has yet to see an expression of definite support for Joseph Chamberlain's policy in any major journal in Canada or in the Canadian parliament. Refutes Chamberlain's assertion that only preferential duties could prevent the colonies severing themselves from the mother country and attributes the agitation to Chamberlain's desire to attract attention away from the results of his South African policy.
