AGE OF HOPE.  Globe: Those whe believe in tha  cycle theory of history will find much  to support their position in a comparison of the present time with that  period which B. 0. Fowler calls the  "century of Sir Thomas Moore." Four  hundred years ago Europe was awakening from a thousand years of  sleep. The shadow of the dark ages  had long hung like a pall, quenching  social, intellectual aud religious progress. The feudal system had fallen  into anarchy; Christianity had become  corrupt almost beyond belief; learning had degenerated into lifeless  ^hatter of the school men; the masses  groaned beneath pilage and oppression. The times indeed were out of  Joint.  In 1453 Constantinople fell and  the  Greek   learning  so  long  confined    to  the  east sought  a. refuge under  the  -sunny  skies of Italy.     With the renaissance,  learning   and  art    became  the chief interests of life.      As Prof.  Villari acutely points out men    would  endure unheard of hardships and dangers    and    spend    their    time,    their  money and even their lives to acquire  some curious and    rare    manuscript,  while no one seemed willing to enter  life or die for liberty and  righteousness.     But deep under this mask   of  sensuality,   of  learning  without   wisdom, of "art without righteousness, ot  prosperity without liberty, of religion  without faith, great living forces were  at work.     A noble discontent, which  is the rarest possession of the human  ' mind, had begun to show itself. Sav-  onaroia, the Dominican monk, became  the prophet of tho ,new time on its  moral, intellectual and political side;  while Columbus by thc discovery of  America opened up the possibility for  material    and     social     advancement  which even yet is barely beginning to  be realized.      With the dawn  of the  new time there appeared a great galaxy ot immortal names, Luther, Calvin, John Knox, Zwingli, Melanethon,  - Colet, Cranmer, in the realm of religion;   Michael  Angelo,    Leonardo    Da  Vinci, Correggiao and Raphael in the  realm of art.     The new    spirit    as  sumed   moral    and    religious    forms  among  the  northern  people,  artistic  forms    among   the   warmer    blooded  southerners; while visions of material  and political aggrandizement tempted  the Spanish and Portuguese to  feats  of  daring  unparalleled  iu  the  realm  of discovery and war. Thus the world  entered,  afler long silence and  darkness upon its greatest era.  Between the ruling ideas of that  time* and those of the present there  is a distinct parallel. Then, as now,  men had dazzling visions of vast  wealth; then intellectual activity was  enormous as it is now; then political  development aud advance increasingly  occupied the attention of the people,  while the masses began to see dimly  from afar the dawn of liberty. At  the base of all religious thinking at  that time was a desire to bring men  nearer to God; and while the desire of  the present Christianity is perhaps expressed in a desire to bring men  near to each other, it is only the opposite side of the same thing. Then,  as now, possibilities, opportunities,  responsibilities almost too great for  comprehension,    rested    heavily upon  An Australian signing himself  Arthur Maquarie sends the London  Times some spirited stanzas called  "A Fam'ly Matter," which neatly put  the Australian view of the present situation. The first stanza runs thus:  "Como my hearties���������work will stand���������  Here's yer Mother calling;  "Wants us all to lend a hand,  And go out Uncle-Pauling.  Catch yer nags and saddle slick!  Quick to join the banners!  Folks that treat the fam'ly thick  Must bo taught their manners.'5  The other stanzas each end with the  refrain "Here's yer   Mother calling,"  and the last ends with the appeal:  '���������Come on, chaps, and be the first!  Here's yer Mother calling."  It is to the honor   and    credit   of  Australia that her    people    promptly  heard tho Mother Country's call  and  her public men promptly    responded;  and it is no less to- the dishonor and  discredit of Canada that    whilo    her  people heard  tho  call  wilh patriotic  ears her statesmen (?) hung back opposed  and  at tho last moment    gave  an  unwilling and ungracious consent  which was only relieved by Sir Wilfrid Laurier's timely eloquence at thc  send-off to the troops in Quebec.  the list as a military power, but due  allowance must be made for the excellence of the army, lhc superiority  of the spirit and personnel and lhe  fact thai Anglo-Saxons have always  bold their own against great O'lds.  A war tor the integrity of tho British  empire would call an army into existence in Great Britain which woulci  leave no doubt as to her strength, for,  in a way, England, as the United  States, depends upon her people in.  lime o������ need and tries not to disturb  them  in times ot peace.  Russia, that great, ��������� mysterious and  isolated country to the north, is the  unknown factor in the future L:���������' ..y  of the world. With known possiliili-  lies of an army of 3,500,000 men already accustomed to the use of inns,  and a population of 130,000,000 millions, which is rapidly increasing, to  draw upon, there is no limit to the  magnaton in prophesying the par'.  Russia may play in the future man  making. Tlio peace conference demonstrated the fact tliat war was still  part ot government.  FASHIONABLE  among  appre-  Says the London Times: "National  policy is no longer arranged by diplomatists, or even determined by parliament. It is discussed in the press  and settled by public opinion,to every  breath of which every one of these  gentlemen who sit in parliament is  ircinulously sensitive."  THE  BRITISH ARMY.  Thc calling out by thc British oi ihe  military reserves and militia has lent  a gravitv to the situation whicli c.xn  the  people  of England    have    fai.ed  heretofore to realize.      It bas  :a- *.e<l  speculation. Great Britain has always  been  conceded   supreme  authority  on  the high  seas,   but there    has    been  much doubt and discussion as to her  strength on land.     The present massing  of troops  is  the greatest armed  body  of men Britain has ever called  together. There were less than o0,������.00  in  Waterloo   and   many  less   m  tlie  Crimea.     Many reasons are advanced  for this vast and expensive  nulitary  move,   but  it  is  generally   conceded  to  have  arisen  in  a desire to  sr.ow  a genuine military strength    beyond  lhat     generally accredited     lc      ..n-  nation.     While many of these troops  will probably be needed in South Al-  rca, it is hardly likely that more thu.i  25 per cent    of the   available    force  would    be sent abroad    even     1    ino  South African nations rise and *ju"iu>-  their  right  to   be   called  the   -olack  terror.''      In plain words the ca.nn_  out of the entire British force is looked upon as a warning or a   blurt    loi  the benefit ot European countries.  As the" present question seems to be  one of land forces it ^ interesting to  note the military strength in England  as compared with other countries leaving out of consideration entirely nei  S-iat naval power. Great Britain has  ! regular army of -244,456 men, but  73,162 of these are in India and a portion of tbe remaining force is in tne  colonies. Part of this Indian force  is available in South Africa aiu1 b.,000  troops have already been starte for  Delagoa-bay. It'would be a Ube al  estimate to allow to the empire a re-  >S������ of 200,000 available lor  Foreign war- These troops woulci not  bo available unless there were ot.inre  to take their places in the home sai-  n=n^s    for   50.000   soldiers   are   kept  Anderson's acquittal on tho charge  of robbing the Molsons bank in  Winnipeg is not much of a surprise  when it is considered that there was  very little credible evidence to connect  him with the crime. Davis, the alleged detective, was shown during the  trial lo be anything but a ptire-souletl  exponent of the art, and the accused  young man certainly bore himeslf  throughout as an innocent young man.  He told a straight story on the stand  and said Davis' statements were lies  and Davis a liar. To the outside  public the great Molsons bank robbery is as much a mystery as ever.

Out-  own good'land is not without discerning sympathy with the new ideals, the  new hopes and the new duties.      In  common   with    all others    we    share  the 'dangers ot the hour. Great wrongs  'are waiting to be righted,  great  obstacles to be removed from the path  of progress, great areas in the realm  of intellect and morals to'be set free,  great problems relating to the economic  and political well being    of  the  masses to be solved.     The    introduction of Canada into the realm of imperialism   is  tho forerunner  of    that  universal    work    which,   in   common  with all other progressive peoples, we  must do.      This  is  no time  for   the  bickerings and frivolous trivialties of  partisan strife.     This is the hour for  statesmanship,    for    prophetism,    for  vision.

In her grief over the crushing blow  administered by the Boers in the  capture of two regiments and a battery. Great Britain must mingle  sentiment of admiration for the manliness of this sentence and the bravery behind this sentiment in General  Sir George White's message announcing the disaster.  "I formed a plan in the carrying  out of which the disaster occurred.  and I am alone responsible for the  plan. Thero 16 no blame whatever to  the troops, as the position was untenable." a  It is of such stuff as this that  great commanders are made. It is  human to err, but akin to divine to  so frankly acknowledge error in  the face of so grave a misfortune. And however ones's  sympathies may tend in this regrettable sanguinary contention between  Briton and Boer, none will withhold  from Genoral White that admiration  due a sole   acknowledgment   of   sole  the regulars there arc S.3,000 in tne  eseet-veS available for foreign service  -md a mlitarv force of Ii2,u00. u";  would Sve Great Britain an anny of  ������5,000 men to use in a war, and tbei".

London, Nov. fl.���������To the eyes or  mii.i.ary experts the darkest page of  tne war is now neing written, but  even that is illuminated with bright  passages such as General While's  victorious sorties. If lie can only  keep the' British flag flying from  Ladysmith until lhe is relieved, the  campaign will turn a fresh page, and  with the advance of General Buller's  force the British public is promised  more cheerful reading. This feeling  of relief is inspired'by ��������� the*, recent  good tidings nevertheless it is .tinged  with a certain alloy of anxiety, lest  General  White ..should  again  mako  Some   Fatal   Miscalculation  involving a .repetition of .the Nicholson's Nek disaster, iner Majesty does  not share this 'anxiety and .is apparently sanguine of his ability to pul!  ��������� through. It is assarted that- she has  written to Lady White expressing  sympathy .with her husuand iu his  trials and'the' "difficulties he is experiencing and assuring Lady White  of her own undiminished confidence  in his generalship. The purport (of  this letter has been cabled to Genera!  While by-.theMarquis of Lanstlowne.  *\ Reinforcements for Durban  A message announces the arrival at  Estcourt and Pietermaritzburg within  the last few days of -j-einforcenients  from Durban and that 3500 troops  are assembled ready for . entering  Colenso when the opportunity arrives.  This latter despatch throws light on  the former, and, the force which left  Kstcourt on Monday- last has dottbt-  -less.'reoccupied Colenso and .'is'pos-  "   sihly-now   advancing  "Cautiously Toward--Ladysmith..'  General While's sortie on Friday  almost to the bank of the Ugela river  was encouraging lo its commander in  the hope of joining hands'with him.  General Joubert by latest advices, it  would appear, drew in his horns after  Friday's engagement and has since  withdrawn' the southern Boer contingent, leaving only .outposts, on the line  from Ladysmith , to '-.Colenso.    " The  'Bo'ers who'occupied Colenso about the  middle'of last week haye retired with-  -out damaging'the Bulwer bridge over  the Ugela river, or the railway as far  nortli as the village ot Nelthorpe,  seven miles south of Ladysmith. Evidently they, nurse the "hope of eventually using both in a descent upon  Pietermaritzburg. Meanwhile the  British are also able to use both as  they already have done in running up  an armored train, whicli may at the  present moment be covering the advance position of the Estcourt force.  j  Defensive Works Strengthened.  At Estcourt ' and Pietermaritzburg  the defensive works have been greatly strentghened within the last few  days. They are now believed to be  capable of holding their own against  any Boer force General Joubert at the  present juncture would risk . sending.  None of the troop ships-have arrived. One, it is predicted,-might.reach  Cape Town on Monday at the earliest,  lt is as yet unannounced and even  when it ��������� does arrive there it might  have three days steaming to reach  Durban, in Natal. As many as six  ���������traaspor-ts__witli_-l,500-troops..are. ex:  Tugela river at    Colenso    is at the  mercy of the Boers.  The Colenso biidge is To miles on  the (Durban side of Ladysmith. Ladysmith' is US miles from Durban, and  it can readily be seen that the destruction of the bridge and the occupation of Colenso woultl "bo enormously advantageous to Joubert's  force. '  The British authorities in Natal  have probably realized /the strategic  importance of the Tugela bridge.  There is no indication that1 the Boers  will be able to lake the position except in open fight, and an attempt to  rush a strong position defended by  artillery and an adequate force * will  ���������be a radical departure from  Boer tactics.  DUTCHMEN  BLAMED.  LIGHT OM  THE  SITUATION   FROM A  FORMER TRANSVAAL OFFICIAL.  the  BINDER TWINE "PROFIT  A Dividend of One Hundred Per Cent  Declared.  Brantford, Nov. 8.���������The Farmers'  Binder Twine Co., Limited, of this  city, today declared a dividend of 100  per cent on the entire paid up capital  stock for the year 1899. Last yeai the  same company declared a dividend of  CO per cent. The whole plant is kept  up to the highest standard, and every  reasonable allowance made for wear  and tear. The announcement created  something of a sensation in financial  circles. (.   o   ANNA THE KISSER  pectcd to be in Cape Town harbor by  this time, but   the war office last evening issued a, statement to the effect  that ��������� ���������  The Only Arrivals-  at Cape Town"'were the Sumatra from  Durban with the wounded, the Southern Cross from Gibraltar, and *the  collier Wenvoc. Ot course it is possible that despatch boats may have  been sent to meet the troopships vvith  instructions to"* proceed direct to Durban. In that event the war office  statement that not onc has arrived at  Cape Town would be accurate, oven  though several should be half way  hetween Cape Town and Durban.  Brighter at Mafeking.  The situation looks brighter at  Mafeking, where the Boers are apparently disheartened at the unexpected  resistance. A large body of their  force has been despatched to th2  south to'assist in the Investment pf  Kimberley, around which the coi-d  is drawing tighter, evidently th?  Boers intend to make a big effort.to  capture Kimberley and their ' arch  " enemy, Cecil Rhodes.  London, Nov. 10.���������The scanty and  conflicting news from the seat of war  and the fact that General White has  not yet said a word about tlie alleged lighting around Ladysmith, is  again producing a feeling of uneasiness, lt may be that While has  sent the news and that lSullev litis  thoght best to keep it to himself. Indeed this version is beginning to be  credited as it is believed that the  news of heavy lighting brought  by the Kaffirs in such circumstantial  detail cannot. be        ' wholly  groundless. It cannot be long before  a change occurs. Buller's forces  will soon an ive at Durban and will  probably begin to advance to the relief of Ladymith about the loth.  Cape Colony Invasion Abandoned  The Boers, if they ever entertained the idea of a real invasion of Cape  Colony have probably now abandoned  it, and will devote their whole energies to reducing Ladysmith. They  have only a week in which to do this  and the fact that tney are rather inactive "indicates something Iwhich  they feel sure will justify their delay. The latest . Escourt despatches  seem to hint that the garrison are  aboi-t  to   retire   further' southwards.  feiege Train for the War  Orders have been' leceived. at  Woolwich and Dcvonport for the mobilization' of a siege train which is  supposed to be intended for the,purpose ol sheiang Pretoria.

Ladysmith   Safe     ' :  The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says that j Ladysmith is safe  for some time to come.

AMNESTY IN DREYFUS CASE  Hampshire Savings Bank by'embPz^  zling>$500,000 was sentenced to tne'  state prison for not more than 12  nor less than nine years.  JOHN BULL AND JONATHAN  National Pro'visioner; Let us give  a few hints which, if carefully observed, may save ievtiat'dollars in  .the-future- - .In.skinning beef hides  and" calf skins keep thc "back of the  knife close to the hide, and draw it  tightly with the left hand. This is  a simple rule, but by following it the  liability to cut or score is considerably-lessened.' On the fore leg .the  knife should" go down to the armpit, so called, and then forward to  the point of the brisket.- On the  hind legs the cut should be made  from the hoof of one, down the iack  of the leg, semieircularly across Trom  one to the other, and on to the hoof.  The throat should never bo cut cross  wise, and the horns and tail should  always be removed. " ' .  The operation of salting is equally  important. To salt hides thoroughly,  a water bucket full of salt should be  used to every CO-pound hide, the  quantity for larger and,smaller hides  being in proportion. After this, they  should be rubbed and rolled up. Independent of cuts and sores, hides  which are not taken off in the manner specified are classed as No.2'_,and  if dried on fences or exposed to the  sun or weather are only, flt for glue  making. A butcher's skinning knife  should always be used, and no employees should be permitted to take  off hides without-one, as the loss  from one hole in -a hide would buy-  several knives. These few rules are  simple enough and their adoption  means a deal to the country slaughterer.  a   o   London, Nov. 9.���������The Morning Post  publishes  the ..following  from Washington.

The following letter appears in the  London Times from Edgar P: Rath-  bone of London, England, for several  years chief government inspector of  mines   in .the   Transvaal:  Sir���������Will you permit one 'of President Kruger's late staff of officials  ut Pretoria now that war is acu-  ully declared) to relate from personal  observations how I believe in reality  all our troubles 'in thc Transvaal  have arisen?  1 believe that i am lhe only Englishman that was ever in charge ot  one ot the Boer government departments, appointed to such by President  ivi-ugcr, aud naturally so long as the  two countries were not actually antagonistic, I felt a little delicacy in  speaking   out.  Seven years' continuous residence  in the Transvaal, mostly in Johannesburg and Pretoria, during tvvo ot  which 1 occupied the position of chief  government inspector of mines, receiving a salary ot XI200 a, year,  may be sufficient excuse lor an expression of opinion as. to the cause  which I believe to be the root ot the  present unfortunate position o������ affairs.  Probably few people of l England  realize that, although the Boer population amounts to some 150,000, which  is, I believe about numerically, equal  lo the Uitlamlers, a mere handful of  men���������certainly ,not more ban 5 per  cent of the whole "Boer" population  ���������consists of newly imported Hollanders, such as Dr.Leyds, ,who because they speak Dutch and arc fairly weli educated, have been put into  and now fill nearly all the government  offices, high and low, at Pretoria.  I want to make this distinction as  to the (interpretation of what a  -���������Hollander" is as opposed to the  "Bo.er" farmer element and the"Afrikander," who is colonial born ,and  descended from ,the Dutch, as the  conspiracy is amongst uiese "Hollanders" who in order to keep m  othce keep out the "Afrikander,"  whilst working in with a tew intelligent -and cunning "Boers" such as  President Kruger, with a salary of  ������7000 a year.  Of late years a few Afrikanders  have also been admitted into 'the  charmed circle of government conspirators, because had they beeu left  out they would have made it too  hot for the rest, such as Mr.Esselen.  Our present disagreement is therefore  not witli the poor unsophisticated  Boer tanner but- with the intelligent  Hollander, official monkey, who uses  him as a catspaw to take the chestnuts, in the shape of magnificent salaries and pickings from dynamite  and other concessions out of the Uit-  lander fire.*   ���������   - ,.. ���������  Secret Service Money      ��������� "    -  ' An enormous" sum of {money, ^accounted ' tor to tlie poor Boer 'under  the head ot "Secret Service Fund"  vanishes annually out of the treasury-  being paid out largely lot- subsidizing  the press���������not ouly that which circulates amongst tho Dutch-speaking  races all over"South Africa, but also  that of other nationalities, whose  sentiments, -it is-thought, may \be  usefully worked up against tlie grasping" Britlsher.such as, Germany or the  United States.' The fund is also employed in, sending cunning agents  amongst the Boer farmers, who "just  drop in* for.a'cuat," to,poison their  minds against the haled Britisher,  and make the poor tellow believe that  it he had not his rillo ready, he might  soon find hinjself nicked out of his  homestead and left with a starving  family, ;his more intelligent Uitland-  er brother not only having seized the  go id mines but is now preparing, to  seize everything else, if -.once enfranchised.  President' Kruger, who can make  these poor iBoer farmers do almost  anything he desires, 'and, can, indeed,  by threatening" to resign, also gel  his whole'parliament to follow him,  always keeps) up tuis bitter feeliug o������  hostility ^gainst the -Uitlander, especially when die harangues them  whilst stumping the country on his  annual presidential tours. On several  occasions .I have "stood in .the crowd  amongst the.Boer farmers and heard  how they, intended to go for ,the "Old  Man, but on the, president's arriving all their wrath ' soon vanished  into-^thin-^airr^being-^pacified���������by**-=a=  present of a handful of tobacco and  kind inquiries as to the family and  farm; , ' '  This handful ot Hollanders thus  virtually controls the whole expenditure of-the State, .amounting in 1897  to over four ^millions sterling, and so  legislates that neither the peoplc.nor  indeed the high, courts ��������� of justice,  shall in any way interfere. Nobody  more clearly realizes than "they 'do  that just as soon as any Intelligent  set " of another nation, such as the  Uitlandcrs igct into' this ��������� charmed  circle, their gang - of- national  blood-suckers, who'live on high bal-  aries, amounting in 1897 to nearly  a quarter of the expenditure of the  country, corruption and commission,  etc., on^ monopolies granted by the  government to the detriment of the  inining industry, will have to go.  Hollanders Desperate   -  Unlike the English, the '.Hollander,  after being naturalized, which he  mus't be in order to hold a government  appointment, can never regain his  position as a Hollander "on ji-eturning  to his native land. His" position unless he uplioids the Boer government,  Under, these circumstances; can it be  wondered at, seeing that bis ability  to speak Dutch is his only' "capital,"  that not, only will he die hard and  fighting, or more properly speaking,  let the Boer farmer do it for him,  but will use every cunning means in  his power to keep out the Uitlander  and retain his "capital" oflanguage.  In what other way can one understand such legislation - as has. been  passed by the Boer legislature or  VoiKsraad during recent years? Why  does Mr.Mansfleld, a Hollander, holding the portfolio of minister of education, insist 'that th. Dutch language shall be' taught even iu English  Uitlander schools? Why was it necessary for me, as inspector of mines,  to send* all my notices to English-  speaking mine managers in Dutch,  who wero severely fined if they did  not understand it? Why was it proposed to grant pensions to poor Boers  if not as a sop  to keep  them  from  inquiring what was   done   with  the  rest  of the  funds?  Why do Paul Kruger and Dr.Leyds  oppr"*o the cancellation of the dyna  mite monopoly, which brings in hardly any revenue to the State, whilst it  provides a princely fortune lo a German not living hi the country, if it  docs not jnean that these worthies  have a "com." to divide? Why do  the railways go out ot their proper  line of country in order to pass  through lands ��������� belonging lo Kruger  and his little gang?  .These are all facts which can be  proved, and I could easily enlarge on  them from my own slock.  Unfortunately the enfranchised  Boers believe all the false stories,  and now that their fiery young sous  march forth to meet the enemy with  the oattlecry of freedom and independence, so appealing to the British  ear, little imagining that the so-called enemy only desires to give them  the samo vmagnincent independence,  honest and sell-respecting govern-  ment.which Canada and Australia enjoy today, and to throw out this gang  of conspirators who are sucking the  life's blood ot "Onslaiid'" the dear  Transvaal.  The Golbe is so tickled to hear that  in Manitoba they are calling Hon.  Clliford Sitton "The Apostle of Western Progress" that it has no ear for  the other terms ot endearments which  are applied to the Ablest Man in  Canada.

The 1IER.M.U would like once ngain  loa.sk the Gold Commissioner what  he is going to do about that Illecillewaet bridge business. It looks very  much as if the old route was going to  bu the only one available for several  months lo come. The new bridge is  being built, it is true, nnd Contractoi  Hyatt is under contract to hand it  over at, the end of this month. But  what then ? There is no rond being  nmdi; by which Lhu settlers can get nl  it aiul no possibility ut this lute stage  nf the season of its being built till  next. May or June. Till then the only  wiy the 18 or 20 settlers across tin  Illecillewaet will have of getting te  town is aci oss tlie old bridge, which  some of these settlers have replaced in  position and partly rebuilt at their  own cost. They ask two hundred  dollars for their services, on payment  of which they will throw the bridge  npen to lhe public. Otherwise they  threaten to take np the planking,  which they furnished themselves for  the covering of the bridge and keep it  up except when using it themselves.  All this trouble nnd annoyance can be  prevented by the pay muni, to the  settlers who put up the old bridge  again of the very reasonable and  moderate sum of two hundred dollars.  Again the Hl-liAI.o'ask- Mr. Coursier  what he is going to do nbout it.  with the Canadian contingent and intends to give the most reliable and  graphic uccounts of the conduct of the  Royal Canadian Regiment in this his1  toi-icul campaign.  ii  THE  No Hiaisteh, No Fuss, Just Rusiskss, That's All.  The   strong resolution  in  favor of  governmental ownership  of railways  in Canada passed at last week's  meeting of the Trades and Lnhor Assembly  merilK a passing nolo, as a sign of  the  limes.    There can hu very little doubt  lhat popular opinion   in  this   place  is  strongly  in" favor  of   the   system   of  government ownership of  trar.s-pnrta-  tinn of all kinds,   as" proposed  by the  resolution.    And this place is only one  of scores of others in  B.C,   like  it.  in  this     particular.     If     this   province  possessed complete scir-goverimient a  measure embodying some such scheme  ns laid down-in   the  resolution   would  by this  time  liave   become  law   with  tlie full   and  enthusiastic  approval of  the electors.      It   is   a  plank   in   the  piovinc-ial platform of both the  political parties in the province nnd nothing  but the inherent  difficulties peculiar  to our situation as a province of the  Dominion   prevent   its    materializing  into mi  accomplished  fact,   as  it  hns  already done  in  New  Zealand,  Cape  Colony, Natal and the various colonies  wliich   ninke  up  Australia.    But   the  Trades  and  Labor  Assembly   guaged  the   situation   quite   correctly  .when  tliey decided lo  address their  resolution   to   the   Dominion   and  not  the  Provincial house.
