ARTICLE I.-A COMMERCIAL UNION WITH CANADA.

A COMMERCIAL Union with Canada is a subject that opens up to the political student a rich field for investigation and thought-one which, in the near future, is destined to be of absorbing interest to this nation.

What I mean by a Commercial Union with Canada is the extinction for commercial purposes of the political line which runs nearly 4000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean, and bounds the United States on the north, and Canada on the south.

Such a Commercial Union would abolish all custom houses, tariff duties, revenue collections, and all restrictions to as free, open trade between the United States and the Dominion of Canada, as now exists between the different States of this Union.

I would remove that customs-line from the south to the north of Canada, and stretch it like a girdle around every rood of territory from ocean to ocean, and from the north line of

Canada to the southern boundary of Texas, so long as we keep up tariff regulations against foreign nations; and, as fast as circumstances would justify, I would extend it to the Isthmus -for this government is destined in time to be coextensive with the North American continent. No foreign flag on this continent is the sentiment of the progressive American heart to-day.

But I am not discussing the probabilities or the possibilities of the future acquisition of territory not now in the possession of this government, nor does my subject call for such discussion. Those questions will take care of themselves in due course of time. I am contemplating the removal of the custom houses and customs line between the United States and Canada in the belief that such removal would enhance the commercial interests of both political divisions of governmental power, without disturbing the equilibrium of the governments themselves.

I would make all products of the brain or soil, the loom or wheel, interchangeable between the two governments, with the same freedom and facility that is accorded to them between our States. No tariff regulations should be a barrier to free, open, unrestricted trade between the United States and Canada. In saying this, I do not wish to be understood as being a "freetrader" in the sense in which that term is generally understood; for I believe in a tariff that will foster and protect against foreign competition, based upon ill paid labor, every infant industry that lifts its feeble head anywhere in our whole realm, till such industry, by skill and improved machinery, is able to stand alone without legislative protection. By limiting, or controlling foreign competition, home competition will be stimulated, keeping prices at minimum rates, thus giving us all the advantages incident to well regulated, diversified, productive energies, which under our tariff have been brought to life and stimulated to healthy growth. Under this system our government has been strengthened till it has become first among the nations of the earth in wealth, political power, prosperity, and the happiness of its people.

Our commercial relations with Canada should be reciprocal between the two governmental powers as far as they can be, under an abolition of our present customs duties.
