Mrs. James Nelson ^Visited the  ."Westminster,, fail'   on  Thursday,  THE CANADIAN PARLIAMENT  Tho "British Columbia Magazine,"  of September has a fine article copied  from McClure's which-undertakes to  explain the difference/between Canadian and American, governments and  is well worthy the. perusal of all 1 who  took an interest in the' recent election,  and particularly the."Annexation Cry."  The article claims that the United  States which says that; It "is a government by. political parties" is not ac-  ' coi'ding -to the Canadian - view a government by political parties. Then the  article starts in to eulogise the Canadian government and. its methods 'in  comparison with that ..of the United  States'. We take -the following extracts from the,'article, the whole article being to our mind an excellent  reason why the people7pf;Canada- would  never annex to the' United States, unless that-country, adopted our consti  tution.1   Read-the following:  "Why," said a Canadian publicist,  "if you Americans have a government  by parties, tell me what party is run-  - ning your government now?" "And indeed, what party is running, our .government-now? The present situation  at Washington ^affoeds a perfect example of the- contrast between the  Canadian political system and~our own.  "For do we not read that the Democrats are. in 'control'"of the, House,  the Republicans in-'control' of the Senate, and that a Republican President  ,'sits in the chair "of Washington" and  .Lincoln? Our/Senate and House must  come to an agreementon -bills before  the congress- passes them;- and "even  ,.tl>r������7p^!Stt'- .President, max ...veto..., these  bills. ,        -,  , '  '  - "Even if those in the. House .who are  ���������termed Democrats were in full accord  ���������on-policies and laws,,'and if the same  were true of "those in--the Senate who  -are termed Republicans,.' still    there  would- be.no. party  'agreement - that  . would.- pass   any   law- .through . Congress or adopt any- programme as a  party  policy.:   For,    even    supposing  party solidarity' in House and. Senate,  yet a different party in in 'control' of  each.- house."      .-     ���������   ���������  . The article then continues and tells  about   the"  party   caucus   and   shows  how the .United Slates cannot have a  party caucus to determine party politics, but says  of the Canadian  "For  a Canadian party, caucus is a caucus  in deed.  A Real  Party Caucus.  "The members of Canada's Congress  are present; the members of the Cabinet are present as such, .and as accepted party leaders; the Premier himself is there, as Premier and as the supreme party chieftain. This caucus,  thus constituted, threshes the whole  matter out. It determines the party's  policy and course of action. The executive and legislative act together.  They are one, practically, speaking.   ���������  No such caucus is possible with us.  Our two houses of Congress are separate and independent, and of almost  equal legislative power; the executive  is separate from- and independent of  both: and so. there can be no singleness of party action and responsibility.  So, in Canada, there is a party solidarity such as we know nothing of,  and can know nothing of, under our  system; for in Canada, it is the party  which governs all the time. Canada's  legislative and executive welded into  into a single governing unit; the Premier and his Cabinet, also members of  the House.and both" of them merely  the manifestations and instruments of  the party in power���������a unity of party  thought and purpose results, as impossible under our system as it is foreign to our notions.  "At the supreme head of this strictly party government, stands the Canadian Premier. Not only is he in reality the executive head of the nation,  not only is he also the legislative  leader on the floor of the House, but  also he is, in a literal sense, the political head of his party.  "It is as if our American President  the Speaker of our House under the  old rules, the leader of the Senate under the ancient regime, and also ,the  leading debater on the floor���������all were  combined into one composite official,  this official party engaged, as a party,  in governing the country.  "Imagine this, and also that this  composite official appointed our Cabinet, each of whom, as well as the Presi  dent himself, was elected to the House  as a member of that body. Add still  further the fact that he is tlie leader  of his party as much as a Scottish  chief was the head of his clan in the  old days; and "talcing all these elements together, you have a rough outlines of" the Canadian Premier.  - In Canada there is no such thing as  the "titular head of a party." The  head of a party there must be a genuine head, not only in name and ��������� by  official sanction; but. by the commission of Nature itself. He must be a  real leader of men; made such by his  courage,  decision.- and-experience.  "The Dominion of Canada is little  more than forty years' old; yet two  Premiers, Sir John" A. Mactionald-and  Sir Wilfred Laurier, have been at its  bead more than-thirty years of that  time, although-either of-them might  have been ousted at any moment. And  either of them, would have lost power  but for their rare qualities of leader-'  ship which made - each of them .the  first of his country's'statesmen of his  time and the head of the Canadian  nation.  "During the same period we have  had eight Presidents. Of these only  four were elected for a second term.  Of these four Grant was re-elected because of his military achievements  in our great wrar, whose smoldering  fires still heated the blood of men.  Cleveland was elected the second time  as a reaction against Harrison; Mc-  Kinley chiefly because of the wave of  patriotism enthusiasm following > the  Spanish American war, the'determination' to keep and. administer the new  .-posse'ss^.-s-' -which-that-'war--had given  us,* the^'p'rofound "antagonism to the  free coinage of silver, which was the  primal cause of his first election.  Roosevelt was reelected as the exponent and personification of that'-historic .and epochal movement for-.-fundamental reform which distinguishes'the  opening period., of the-twentieth century. "-'.,.. '. . . " '.'."'' '  Laurier in' Control for Fifteen Years.  "But in Canada Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his party have been in continuous  and supreme power for fifteen years.  It is as if an American President  should be elected to ��������� the presidency  four times in succession. Yet, at any  moment during those fifteen years,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier could have been  put out of office by the Canadian people. This makes it clear to the American reader that the Canadian Premier  must be a man of commanding and extraordinary powers. And such a man  is Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Let us consider this dominant mind and character  of Canada, not only "in order to describe ��������� the man, but also in order to  understand the personal-qualities that  a Canadian Premier must possess to  hold that mastery' Of his party and  the confidence of the people for. so  long a time.  ' "First of all, then,- even in his early  manhood Laurier was a captivating  public speaker. For almost forty years  he has been by far the greatest of Canada's popular orators. Long before  he came to the premiership, friend and  foe conceded that, on the stump, he  was the most effective man in the  dominion.  ' "Almost from the moment he entered the House of Commons he was his  party's most skilful debater. He has  the gift of clear and simple statement,  persuading even his opponents by his  sheer reasonableness.  "Said a seasoned and reliable ne'ws-  paper man: T have seen a debate  which spread and ramified until -the  main thing was lost sight of. Then I  have seen Laurier rise and state the  matter with such clear reasonableness  that even the members of the opposition, perfectly unconscious of what  they were doing, would nod their  heads in approval."  Then, of course, Laurier has solid  ability of the first order. "One of your  Americans has been described as 'a  inan who thinks in terms of continents'; well, that describes Laurier's  mental operations,' said one most careful student of this notable Canadian.  "In the big sense of the term, Laurier is a politician, but not in the ordinary American understanding of that  word. For example, from his ambitious youth clear down to the present  moment, Laurier has never been a  'mixer,' as our phrase has it. He never has gone to clubs, for instance, in  (Continued From Page Two.)  8 $1.00 PER YEAR  THE MARKET. ,   '      ������������������"���������   I <i  There was little doinj on the market this morning. The flower stalls  wore a deserted appearance and vegetables were not as plentiful as usual,  though there were new offerings in  the shape of pumpkins and citrons,  which have not heretofore appeared  on the locau market. Buyers were  not quite so numerous as usual, but  those who did attend the market evi- ���������  dently went there for the sole purpose  of -purchasing and bought what they  wanted and - then departed without  lingering to listen to the alluring remarks of the gentlemen who sell remedies that cure all theills that flesh  is heir to and some that it might ac- >  quire.  , One of the features of the market  -  was the rise in the price of eggs at/  wholesale.

Winter pears may be left  on the tree as long as there is no danger of frost.  Barrel Packing.  While picking is in progress, when  the baskets are full, they are emptied  into bushel boxes made of slats. It is  a good idea to plane of the sharp  edges of these slats before making the  boxes up in order to prevent the pears  from being cut by them.  As soon as a load is ready, I draw it  into the packing house and unload it.  but I let the pears remain in the boxes  until they cool off. If pears are packed as soon as they are picked, they  will =-swcat. This will cause them to  ripen far more quickly than Ihey  otherwise would.  Later, they are emptied on the table  and sorted into three grades. The different grades are then put into barrels, boxes or baskets, according to  the market to which they are to be  shipped. A market where the fruit is  all consumed at home usually calls  for the smaller packages, while a market which reships to smaller points  generally prefers to three-bushel barrel.  Barrel  Picking.

I laughed and changed the subject, tor I did not have time  to go into details just then, but  thought that he surely must be an  Irishman, and only accustomed to  growing "apples of the earth," as the  French call potatoes.  There is no  fruit    which    requires  more careful handling in every partic  until the barrel is faced. Empty the  pears in carefully out, of the baskets,  and shake the barrel gently every few  minutes. When heading up the barrel  j do not press as tightly as for apples.  The pear is a firmer fruit than the  apple, and will not give quite as much.  With regard to tlie.grading of pears,  it is very important that -each grade  should be as much as possible of uniform size, for if a few large ones are  ,     ,,       it ,    .,     >.   .    ,        put into a barrel marked.No. 1, it giv-  ular than the pear.

This is almost as bad as the  Irishman's way of shaking the tree.  Pears should always be turned up,  insted of pulled off, and then laid carefully into  the  basket;   for a pear is  ones making the others look smaller  by comparison.���������Canadian Horticulturist.
