CANADA'S DANGER
The United Press Association occasionally sends out some transcendental "rot"
in the shape of-"news," but, we must
Bay that, either their London newsgath-
crer bus a most extraordinary and vivid
fancy, and must be besides very bard up
for news, or that the British Cabinet
must have a fit of "March madness."
We are told in the despatches nf Saturday
night that the Cabinet has become
alarmed st the situation in Canada iu
reference to the relations of England
with Canada, and the possible absorp-
tionoftbe latter by the United States. It
is also stated and, by tbe way. with a
coolness that is truly refreshing, that "an
eminent Canadian, a Minister of State of
many years standing, has written a letter
to the Secretary of the Colonies lamenting on the growing feeling among the
young generation with respect to the
mother country. This feeling be attributes to ignorunee oi the history of England snd ignorance of her present condition. Canadians, he assures tbe Colo
nial Secretary, stand much in need of enlightenment in these matters, and adds
that a vast service to Canada and tbe empire would be done if some eminent Kng-
lishman whose  position   and oratorical
oned, not upon the shields, but Upon the
foreheads of all true Canadians,. We are
as loyal to the existing order of things as
we deem necessary, nevertheless we will
say if thc dispatch mentioned he not a
huge canard, lhat if the sending over of
sis eminent F.nglistinicn to teach Cuor.-
dlnns English history, and point out to
them England's greatness is the sole hope
by which England can keep a hold on the
Dominion, the probability of separation is
very great indeed. But we believe lhat it
is a slur, a slander, a libel, on the people
Canadians are just, as loyal, just OS putrio-'
. Me as the people of any of England's other
[dependencies.   We will admit that there:
feeling  towards
annexation or Independence, but those j jE
a-same 111 'entlments are still In an ombryotto stage 2
and cannot possibly, as yet, be the source; ">
___        | of any alarm,   When the time comes for|0
Canada to change the relationship now so | 5
happily existing   between   her   and   the i a
mother country, we feel assund she will
do so without let or hindrance on the part j
oi the greal empire of which she HOW
forms a part. It is impossible to cast the
horoscope of the future and s-ty what it
will bring forth. But this we do say that
England's policy will not be one of eoer- ■
cion if Canada should wish to sever ber,
relations with the home country. There- j
fore, when we read such bosh as is from |
1 time to time published concerning the re- :
lations existing, and bear the comments
made,   and    the   means   proposed   In
I remedy the existing order of things, it i **
1 strikes us as being laughable in the extreme.   But we feel that we have devoted
afl much spice to this subject as   its   lm- j
psrtnnce warrants.   The future of Canada
whether as a dependency of Great Britain i _
or in any other position,  is assured, and   _
among the nations of the world she is des-; o
lined at no distant day to play an   important and Inti • ting      b. 2

1 of common occurrence.
Young. Canadians growing Indilferent to
the ties which bind them to the mother'
country? Do they wish {or annexation to
the United States? or do they want to
''paddle tUelr own canoe? But the "iiiobI
iinkindest cut of all" lies in the fact that
tbIS "Minister of State" attributes tbe
feeling of indifference which is supposed
to prevail towards tbe mother aountry to
"ignorance of the history of England,
and ignorance of her present condition -,"
and further the "Minister of State" goes
on to say that "Canadians Btand much in
need of enlightenment in these matters."
Well, on behalf of the Canadians we will
eay, with all due deference to the "Minister of 'State'a" opinions, that the average
Canadian is ai fmniliar with the-history
of England as is tlrc'uverugo Englishman.
To (Sornc tfie above statement may
Beeru somewhat far-fetched, but is nol
tbe. history of England taught in all our
schools. Have we not since our school
boy days been led to leok upon England
as the grandest and mightiest power on
earth? Have not our hearts burned
within us as wo read of the heroic deeds
of men and women famous in English
History, from tbe time of C'aractacus and
lloailica dewH to tbe present day? We
hold that if any "Minister of State" of
the Dominion of Canada has so far forgotten himsYlf as to make such absurd, silly I
and nonsensical statements, he either'
must Is, in Oiia dotage and knows nothing
of whtdh ho'speslfs, or that he is enci a 'd
in a coat of the densest kind of Ignorance j
us regards the people of Canada and Iheir :
sentiftferits iu regard to British relations
and rhitinh connection. The remedy
proposed is a unique one. It is sua-
gested that In-order to "enlighten" the
Canadians' that some' "eminent Englishmen, whose position and oratorical powers would ensure attenlien, would devote
some weeks er months in passing through
the Dominion and clelivering a series of
eclui-es on tile history of Iho British Em-
I re." This is duly refrishing, and for
the stupenduousnese of the ignorance and
check displayel it is without a-parallel,
It is An insult to the intelligence of Unpeople' of Canada, and we can- j
not «• credit. it - as ■ im mating from
a Caiadian- 'statesman. Canada will'
ne diubt flel grateful for the coming of j
nix representative Englishmen who will j
revive .the drooping spirits of the Cana-
diairs, and bit-afire 'fresh life into the dry
bones orflieij flagging patriotism. Surely ;
wo may expect an outburst of loyally such i
as never before was seen or eyen dreamed j Nanaimn.

to the reporter, "let us go over to

"As we pen these lines," wrote the
able editor, "our eyes are rivers of tears,
and our soul is fraught with poignant
woe. A gentle luminous star, thai
shone more lustrous than all the j-tars
about her, has died out, and is dead
forever. Gladys Swivelhurst—Gladys,
the beautiful, the young, is dead."
At this juncture the foreman entered
the able editor's room, and informed
him a short item was necessary to fill
the last column on the second page,
and the editor wrote this:
"We must have money to carry on
our business. Several hundreds of
dollars are due us, and if they are nol
forthcoming immediately the accounts
will be placed in the hands of a collector."
Having dashed this off, he continued
the article about the dead one:
"Her life and death reminds me of
the short but beautiful existence of the
flower; born under smiling skies,
nourished by gentle breezes, only to be
cut off by the pitiless wind from the
north. It seems like an unhallowed
dream--that Gladys is dead; but she is
doubly dead, in that she died so
young."
Here he was called to the telephone,   ..       -, _,-,_>.«».Ms-wi/wraiwj

Then   the   death n
tinned:
"It was in the morning of the" wedding day; the golden glow of the sunlight, streaming into the chamber,
seemed a promise of a life of happiness
to come; hut, ere the shadows of the
i evening had fallen uixm the brown
earth, the deeper and colder shadow of
death dimmed -those tender eyes, left
; the damp upon her beautiful brow,
and all was over."
Here a messenger  handed him a
note,   He read it, and taking another
sheet of paper, soon sent the following
to the printers:
"James Cobbleton tells a good joke
. on Andy Shellhorn. For several nights
the latter had been annoyed by cattle
which  broke  into his   yard,  causing
.  general havoc.   At last, enraged beyond endurance, he bought a gun, and
hearing the usual racket in the garden
about midnight, ho opened the window
of his room nnd blazed away.    In the
morning he found that he had shot one
of his own  cows,  which had broken
from the stable and wandered into the
yard.   The laugh is on Andy."
He again resumed the obituary:
"We have watched this young girl
grow from childhood to  young and
glorious womanhood. We have wa'died her when she went by like a sunbeam, and marveled at her beauty;
and to-day we see the bridal robes substituted by the clinging cerements of
death,  and our tears seem drops of
blood   ebbing  from   a   crushed   and
anguished heart."
When this was written a reporter
entered the room and handed him a
marked copy of a local contemporary,
after reading which he rapidly pe»ned
the following:
"The scurrilous dish-rag which is
published in an obscure corner of this
town, by a lop-eared leper who spends
