THE CANADIAN   SITUATION  One of  the  London Times'  lasl,ar-  . tides   on   Canada   is   so   excellent   In  ever;.-   respect   that   we   reproduce   it  today in full.     It is from the pen of  The-    Times'    Toronto    correspondent,  who is one of the most broad minded  and able writers in the Dominion:  -  Ths  last  three  or   four  years  have  lieen very important unes'tor Canada.  It   has   been   generally   fell   that   the  country  is passing    through    one    of  those-  formative    periods    which    are  pregnant with results'in the life ot a  people.      The   whole   outlook   of   the  country  has   widened.        The    sensational discoveries of Bold in the Klondike,   the   equally   important,. - though  more  slowly   developed   discoveries  of  gold, silver and coal in the Kootenay,  Cariboo and   Crow's Nest  districts  of  British Columbia, the improvement of  agricultural   conditions   In   the   North  "West,   the   revival   of   manufacturing  activity   throughout  the  eastern   provinces,   have   all   contributed   to  produce   a   general   feeling   of   buoyancy  imd confidence in the future..     A rising' revenue,  a largely increased  volume  of   exports  and   imports,   an  Increased   flow   o������   immigration   .and   a  -prevailing prosperity among the producing  and   distributing  classes  have  lieen   the  tangible   proofs  of  the   improved conditions.      Montreal,  Toronto.     Winnipeg.     Vancouver���������to     take  -widely separated, but typical centres���������  liav*.- all felt the impulse of a new energy:  all are increasing in population  aiid  extending their activities.    What  is true ot these larger aggregations of  population   is   true    of     a    thousand  smaller  centre?  between the  Atlantic  and  the Pacinc.  A  succession   of  good   crops  in  prairie   country,   with     an  price for wheat and  I'or  ca.ttle.   has  put  farmer on  lost. Now lines are therefore subsidized by .both the general and provincial governments with a freedom  whicli surprises tho people of older  and more thickly settled countries.  With the increase of population the  need for this will steadily diminish.  If  the movement  in  material  prosperity has been rapid and marked, tho  crystallzatlon   of   national   sentiment  along Imperial  lines has been no less  striking.    The preferential tariff of 25  per   cent   given   to   British   goods   in  1S97,   the  demand    for    an     Imperial  penny postage  which,   in  189S,   finally  overcame  the prolonged   resistance  of  tlio  British   post  office,   thc    resolute  efforts made and the liberal subsidies  given  to  secure 'an '��������� all-Rrltlsh   trans-  Pacific   cable,   the   reduction   of   duty  on  Jamaica sugar,  the increase made  during the present year of tbe Brilish  tarlfT   preference   to   :������ 1-2   per   cent,  were till  indications of  thc prevailing  trend   of   Canadian   fooling.       But   a  doubting  critic   might    have     argued  that  none   of   these    furnished    final  proof of Canada's willingness to commit.'herself   unreservedly   to   the  cur-  lieiit-  of   BritainV.   luitlannl     system.  That   final   test   was   applied   by   the  South African  war. and   the result  is  now  a.matter  of  history.      Canada's  contribution of men was not. perhaps,  ln   proportion   to   her   population,   her  wealth, or her position as the. leading  colony  of   the Empire,   and   Australasian  liberality and  energy- In  this respect are warmly applauded  throughout the Dominion.      But behind every  man   sent,   every   blow     struck,    and  every  dollar  spent    was  the    passion  of   the   Caiiii/dian   people.       With   an  exception   to   be   hereafter  noled   and  easily    explained,    Canadian    opinion  from Halifax to Vancouver was practically  a   unit   bolh   as   to   thc* justicc-  of Britain's cause in the  war and as  lo Canada's duty  In    taking    a part  in   it.  The determination to share In the  national perils, taken during the hour  of disaster and anxiety in South Africa, has been fully confirmed by the  cooler Judgment which comes with  the lapse of timo, and so far as present appearances go it may be taken  for granted that henceforth Canada  can be reckoned . among the fighting  factors of the Empire, if the steps are  taken which make such a. position  constitutionally,'justified.  The test which the South African  war applied to Canadian feeling in  national matters was a crucial one.  Writers like Mr. Goldwin Smith had  always claimed, or rather proclaimed,  that if once Canadian loyalty to the  Empiro demanded anything moro than  talk, that it meant men and money���������  a' share In the burdens and dangers  of the mother land���������it would soon  prove   itself  something    very   hollow,  We may call this a divided loyalty,   Avenue,   Now   Orleans,   La.,   for  my  lull lt is tin- business of a lin-tiuu'llkc  ours to make llie most of lcya-iiies  nf  tills' kind.     The French Canadian has  every   reason   to   be     satisfied     with  what he has got    frum  thc    Empire;  the   Empire,   na������,   on   the   whole,   no  reason  to  be  discontented  with what  he   haa  given   In   return.      It   was   a  singularly      fortunate      circumstance  that at  this critical   time  In  national  affairs a. French Canadian  statesman  was al  the cad of the Dominion government.       Without     his   leadership  Quebec might have caused  trouble. A  French   member   of   the   cabinet   and  more  than  one private  French member   of  parliament     objected     tc  the  conditions   on   which     tho     Canadian  contingents   wero    sent to   tho  front,  Thc lack of a share   In  the Imperial  councils wns assigned as a reason for  their  opposition;   whether    It  haa    a  deeper motive is not  quite    apparent.  Personally  I   think   that   the   premier  made a political  mistake Jn not from  the   Ilrst  throwing  himself  fully  Into  tho tide of British  feeling, trusting to  tho   probability   that  French   Cananu.  would   find  lis- interest  In   supporting  him  in  any case.      No  doubt he  felt  that   his   compatriots   required   to   be  educated   by  degrees   to   the  full   do-  iTtaruiH of British citizenship, but if he  loses   In   the   present   election   it   will  bo in part due to the week of hesitation   nefore   referred   lu,   which   will  cost him votes In the English speaking   provinces,   even   though   the   vigorous policy finally adopted may coat  him  others  among  a  certain   portion  of the French voters of yucoee.  But it Is still rather uncertain which  poltcial party will gain most from the  tide of patriotic sentiment whlcn  nas  flooded Canada as an outcome or the  South  African  war.      rt  Is,   however,  a striking fact that both aro trying to  make  political   capital   oul   of  it���������tho  Liberal party for  the. vigorous policy  "finally adopted,  for the careful selection of tho troops' whicli have proved  so useful, for the courage involved in  Incurring   tne ��������� expanse   without   consulting parliament; the Conservatives,  for  having  flrst   aroused  public  feeling and  pushed  the  government into  vigorous' action.    There is no division,  as  in  England,   between     those    who  supported the war and those who 0P7'  posed It.     Each  party seeks  popular  approval   chiefly    on  the    ground  ot  having clone most tnoroughly its duty  to the Empire.      Other issues of the  electoral  campaign  must  ho  reserved  for another letter.  vacation   Is   ended     and    T   have     to  A WESTERN  STORY.  Calgary   enjoyed  a    visit    recently  from Mr. W. A. Fraser, the Canadian  novelist  whose  western   stories,   both  short and long, have made for him  a  an   asset  -without   practical   value   ln  [reputation   which, has     extended  beyond  the  borders  of Canada.  buckle down tc hard work at school.  T hope that you will enjoy yourself in  the Rockies and on the Plains, and  that you will find material for more  of your tales. T have never been ta  the Rockies nor tlie Plains, but when  I grow older I expect to go there.  Thanking you for writing to me,  I am, your young friend,  WM. KERNAN DART.  New Orleans, La., Oct. 10, 1000.  My Dear Mr. Fraser:  I hope you received my other letter  which 'I   wrote  you  from   Waveland,  Mississippi, as you wero probably far.  away  In   the  Rockies then.      I  have  now come back to New Orleans,  and  am hard at work at school.     I seldom  read   anything   now.   and   T   linvte   to  study pretty hard,  but that docs  not  keep mo from following up the Moos-  wa   stories.      They   are   too   good   to  miss.      Three new numbers have appeared   since   I   last   wrote   you   and  ench Just as interesting aa It can be.  X  am  eagerly  awaiting  the  next one  which  appears tomorrow.      T laughed  like  everything  at  Lhe  way  the  animals sprung all poor Francois'  traps,  and cut the meat.     I think that you  described   the  animal  slide  just  fine;  It couldn't have been done any better  by Kipling, if as good.   It was mighty  exciting   for   a   little   while   in   "the  Capture ot Wolverine," when the bear  ���������was   sleepy   and   they   had   to   wake  him so that the trap could bo sprung  which   held   Caracjon.      I jrould   like  to have seen  that spectacle of Moos-  wa carrying Musltwa, and Blue Wolf  carrying   Caracjon.       I   was   mighty  sorry  when  Black King had  to  have  his leg cut off,  but lie    paid for    his  curiosity,   for there   is  a  saying  that  "curiosity killed the cat," and it came  near killing Black King, too.     I think  that   Plsen   should   bo   killed,   but   it  goes   without  saying    that    Francois  should be, too.     I think that Mooswa  was  a  mighty  noble animal  to  risk  his life with  Francois  that way.      I  guess old Francois was mighty scared  at   tho   Blue   Wolf's  death   cry.   You  ought  to  kill  them  In  some  way  or  another   beforo   the   tale   ends.   Tour  stories are certainly fine.     I saw your  picture in  the  Book Buyer  the  other  day.      I  hope  vou  are enjoying your  stay   tn   the   Rockies  and  that     you  won't meet with any accident. . I suppose it Is getting t.o be pretty cold up  north.     Down hero it Is llko summer  again,   il  is so  warm.      My  address  now is 5931, St. Charles Avenue, Now  Orleans.  Louisiana, TJ.  S. A.      Please  write to me.      I remain as ever,  Your young friend,  WM. KERNAN DART.  Thanksgiving day in the United  States this year comes after the election.

The  actual attitude taken by Canada in  the time of trial is now a matter of  history. Mr. Smith consoles himself  for his mistaken prophecies by assigning the great outburst of national  patriotism to a "wave of jingoism,"  and goes on making pessimistic predictions  as calmly as  before.  It was curiously interesting to  notice on the spot the spontaneous  growth of the popular passion which  determined the sending of the Canadian contingents. At first it was  thought that the advance to Pretoria  would be a "walk over," that the  forty or fifty thousand men being  Sent to the front were adequate for  the work, and that, in any Case, Brit-  am had no wish for colonial assistance.  Then came the news of disaster.  Men, as they met on thc street, remarked to each other that there now  seemed to be an orening, ana even a  necessity, for loyally to talte practical  'tdriii". "The~larger���������journals-���������of���������the-  clties and the smaller ones of the  towns alike began to be tilled with paragraphs singulars- unanimous as to  the duty of the country. Some  hesitation���������afterwards fully explained  by the attitude of a rew of Sir Wilfrid. Laurier's French followers���������was-  shown by the government. Tt Is  scarcely too much to say that, had  that hesitation continued for a week  longer, the rising tide of patriotic  f..ollng would have swept th" strongest  government  from  power.  The part which Sir Wilfrid Lnurttf-r  had to play wns certainly .1. dilllcult  one, considering the attitude of the-  ordinary French Canadian towards  tht- war���������an attitude which can easlly  be explained. The French habitant  loves Canada. It is lhe land of his  birth���������the land which embodies all his  most valued traditions. France is  only a remote memory; Canada Is hip  home. Th-'." memory touches his im-  ���������aginatiirn and is linked to his daily  life by the language which he- speaK.i,  but the; homo holds hTs heart. Yet.  while passionate In his love of Canadian soil, It is from reason rather  than from Instinct that ho Is attached  to the "Empire. It hns been just to  b'!m, and.considerate, allowing him In  th*. public life- of the country tho  fullest rights of citizenship, and equality in the use of language, security  Tor his religious privlltgch, .and the*  enjoyment of laws and customs which  hi. .value*?.  Still, to expect ..from him the enthusiasm, for British: Interests' and  thf- devotion",to' Brilish ideals which  iprovaii in British Canada would be  absurd. There Is doubtless In his  mind a lurking- dread that some tiny  the centre of his political loyalty,  Britain, and the centre of his race affection, France, may come Into conflict. This feeling alone might naturally make him instinctively hesitate  Ir. that complete yielding of himself  to British enthusiasm which could  otherwise <be possible  far  Mr.  Fraser was here  fulfilling a commission  entrusted   to   him   by  the  Daily'  Express,     the   ' new     London     paper  which  is being established at the expense   of   the     millionaire    magazine  proprietor, Mr.  Pearson.     It may not  be known, by the way, that Mr. Pearson   recently   passed   Calgary   on   his  way to the coast.     Mr. Fraser's mission  on behalf  of the    Dally Express  was   to   write   a  series   of   letters  on  the   Canadian   West.       They   will   be  looked   forward   to  with   interest   and  will doubtless add  further  to  the excellent  fame   this   country   is   achieving on the  other side of the Atlantic.  During his Calgary visit Mr. Fraser  spent what was���������to us���������an interesting  hour   In   The   Herald   sanctum,   and  during   a   lively   chat     on     literature  and politics  (Mr.  Fraser is a  Conservative,  hut   one ot~those^wh"o���������had���������mi  hop.- of the party winning ln the east)  we  succeeded   ln  borrowing   a  couple  of  letters  which   seemed   we!!    worth  publishing.

John   A.   Logan   Discusses    the  Home Department for Herald  Readers.  The home department Is' a recent  and valuable addition to Sabbath  schol methods of work. Like many  other Sunday school improvements, it  comes to us from the TJnlted 'Slates,  where the plan was flrsl systematized  and operated wilh a marked degree  of success.  What is the home deportment? The  name is suggestive ot the answer.' It  is not another organization for church  work but is a return to the old practice of Bible study at homo under a  somewhat different method. The  generation now passing was less Instructed In Sunday schools than ivre  the youth of the present day. ' In the  older days a comprehensive study of  the Bible and catechism was a feature of the Sabbath and the home.  This practice unfortunately is now  more noted for its omission than observance. The Sunday school has to  a large extent assumed the work and  shares in the responsibilities of the  home for religious education.  The ideal of tho Sunday school is to  gather all into it, so that young and  old may study together the book of^  books. The Sunday school has not  yet reached its ideal, and possibly  never will. Yet thc idea! remains al  point to be worked up to.  Far various  reasons very  many   do  not   or   cannot  attend   thc  session   of  the Sunday school.   Sonic of these are  parents who are tied at home. Others  are   "shut   inns"   from   inabilities,   or  duties  which    command   their   attention.      There are families also which  distance debars from attendance.Theso  and all non-attendants may be reached   and   helped   by thc   home ' department, and for them it has' been planned.      The object  is systematic Bible  study, and teaching of the catechism  in  the  home  by all the members  of  the  family.      To  carry this out  visitors' are  appointed  by the  officers of  the nearest Sunday school, and where  there  is  no  school  near by  the  minister or missionary, whose work it is  to  carry to these  families  the  Home  Study Quarterly,  from which tho lessons for the quarter are to be studied.  The matter  is  talked ov,cr with  parents   and   the   whole   plan   explained.  The visitor also has a chat with  the  children   and   some   or   all   decide  to  spend   a   half   hour   a  week  at   least  with   the  lesson.      The   whole- family  thus have  placed  before them  a method by which they pursue the study  of the Bible uaralle!  with  the school.  In   addition   to  the   Quarterly   each  member   of   the   family   receives   an.  envelope   in  which  to place  contributions', and on which  lo mark the lesson   studied,   amount   of  offering  and  church attendance.     This envelope Is  taken  and  another  given  at the  end  of  the  Quarter  when  the  visitor  returns with the help for the following  terms.      The  whole   outfit  should  be  furnished  to the  visitor by  the  Sunday school, session  or missionary, by  whom  he or she is appointed.  What   are  the    advantages  of    tho  home department?  It brings to the home a plan of-  Bible study. It links the members of  the home department with the Sunday school, and leads them to it ln  many cases. It wins the co-operation of many with their children in  homestudy of the lesson. It brings  Christian workers into personal contact with many who are to some extent- deprived of church privileges,  and are living in .neglect of God's  word. It caries the good news of  the. .gospel to many who for reasons  aro. .'shut __out from the church and  Sabbath" school; By~U_m-ahy~rhn.y-bc-  prevented   from, lapsing,*into   a  con-  J. M.

Finally, he signed the document that restored tho prisoner to  liberty. Before he handed it to him,  he saitl: "You will commit some  other crime, and be in the penitentiary again, I fear."  Tho man solemnly promised that  he would not. Then the governor  looked doubtful, mused a few minutes) and said:  "You will go hack on the river and  bo a mate again, I suppose?"  Tho man replied that he woulrl  "Well, I want you to promise me  one thing." resumed the governor.  "I want you to pledge your word  that, when you are a mate again, you  will never take a billet of wood in  your hand and drive a sick boy out.  of a bunk to heln you load your boat  on a stormy nicht." The steamboat  man said ho would not, and inquired  what the governor meant by asking  him  such a question.  Tho governor replied: "Becaus"  jomo day the boy may become a governor, and you may' want him to  paron you for a crime.

LORD ROBERTS'ACCIDENT  Thrown  From  His   Horse aod  Shaken.  Badly  connection  with   the  shipping of  ore.  At Grand Forks  we found  the smelter working and it is in splendid condition.     The work there has been increased 600 tons per day.     We visited  the Mother Lode mine and of this too  much- in its    praise cannot    be said,  as  It   is  in  a  most  magnificent  conr  dltion.       There   is  an   immense   body  of ore in sight and much blocked ont.  In order to have more room they are  now moving their   ore to the bins at  the smelter at Greenwood.    The B. C.  Copper  company  has   .been    delayed  some in the construction of the smelter there owinjr to the lateness of the  arrival of the machinery.     The smelter should be In operation by the end  of  November.      Its  capacity  will  be  300   tons  per  day.-     Wo  -visited  the.  site of the smelter at Boundary Palls  and found it quite* a suitable ..one.    I  had advice today that the first shipment of  machinery for    It was sent  from    Denver,    Col.,    today.       They  should have completed.by the end of  thc   year.      The    smelting    capacity,  with this  and  other smelters of the  Boundary, will then be large enough  to reduce all the ore that Is produced  ������������������ ','^in   this   section.      The   distance 'for  -"There is a rumor, j hauling from any of the mines will  not 'exceed 25 miles and tho freight  rate can not be a very jarge factor  in obtaining the precious"metal from  the ore, and with the modern equipments of the smelters there should be  no reason why even the lowest grade  ore should not bring 'a profit to both  the smelter and the mine owner. There  are several properties on the west  fork of Kettle river that are showing  up well, and lt is said by prominent  mining men that they are equal to  thc mines' of the Phoenix camp. If  this 19 true there will be enough ore  to keep all the smelters running to.  their  fullest  capacity.

The estal liahment of a mining  '���������menu for southern British Columbia,  Kootenay and Yule, is an important  Htride in the direction or u systematic  advertisement of the mining resources  of these districts. Such a bureau has  recently been estahlibhed a*; Rossland  under the name of the Chamber of  Mines aud the direction is in such  r-in-'hlfi hands as T.B. MeArthur, John  McKane, J. S. C, Fraser, F. XV. Rolt  **.nd C. P. Chrtintierlin. It is owing  I o the existence of such bureau**, where  capital can obtain impartial and reliable information that the mining  districts of Australia and South Africa  are so much better known in the old  country than are onr own. The new  chamber will do good work for Kootenay and Tale and everyone interested in mining in theie districts should  give it support.  Out* esteemed contemporary, tbe  La.idenu Eagle, is finding '.'onsiderable  .lillicnlty in balancing itself on the  i.iirhr, rope of socialism just, at present.

It is hard to make  a satisfactory mixture of socialism  principles and booming a. mining  district in one and the same newspaper.

A  prises Quebec   is  point     in     the .  successful invasion of Quebec liy n  French army in t.he midst, ot a tru-ndly  pupulation and abundance of supplie.-  is a stroke which miirht be tumid a  matter of great difficulty to pioperly  counter.  There, is   no   sense   in   be'mg  lulled  into   false   security    by   the  sooihimr  .straii!.s-ol"-.Lhe=-GriU_talkiiig.  We are face to'face with  danger and what is more we have had  ample warning of it. Do we want to  see repeated in Quebec the experience  of the Empire in Cape Colony a year  ago. Then the Africander Dutch were  loyal and there was going to lie no  war. As it happened there, was a war  and tlie loyalty of the Africander  Dutch wa.s speedily discovered to be  lacking in certain miporlant e.-seii;  liiils. Docs anybody doubt whether  or no this experience would lie repeated in Quebec in the case of a war with  France and a successful French  invasion of that piovince? Let us pul  it in this way. Suppose Canada was  a Fteneh posst-ssion, does anybody  doubt, whicli way Ontario would gu iu  case oT a successful British invasion of  lhat, province? The Ft ench Canadians  are loyal up to a, certain extent.
