country's Industries rcqiilro a sum
ciency of labor to prevent any cur
tailment of existing or projected
enterprises ; while the interests of
our civilization demand a judicious
selection of the rcinfoi cements of
labor from abroad, also that these
shall include a due proportion of
women, in order to provide the
wholesome leaven of family life in
our industilal population.
It is gratifying to have the Min
istry declare themselves for the strict
independence of the country, after
i the recent divulging of the protec
torate "memorandum," that was
clearly a breach of the originally
declared policy of the Keform party.
Even with the Cabinet's denial of
responsibility for the more objec
tionable proposals of that document
in view, it is reassuring to have the
Ministry pronounce emphatically for
independence in their formal state
ment of policy. Other parties in
the elections ought to be similarly
explicit, so that no adverse verdict
to the Government could be con
strued into one against independ
ence. In this connection, we would
express the opinion that the Minis
try should not go too fast or far in
enlarging the scope of the recipro
city treaty. There has been little
or no public demand for making it
broader, the main concern of our
people having been with regaid to
its continuance. A mutual wiping
out of customs tariffs between the
two countries would destroy a
source of revenue that would have
to be replaced with mere internal
taxation. It woulfi also be liable
to place other friendly powcts in an
attitude of self-defense for their own
interests here, leading perhaps to
diplomatic complications that would
devolve on the United States a re
sponsibility she might not be pre
pared to assume on account of this
There can be only one intelligent
opinion, and that a favorable one,
upon the policy promised regarding
education and health. Liberal pro
vision will be made for educating the
lising geneiation, and the settled
means of stamping out the country's
plague will be firmly but kindly en
forced. AVc should like, however,
to be promised improved measures
for the prevention of epidemics, that
seem unfortunately in late years
to have increased in frequencj,
while not always being cheeked as
promptly as ought to be deemed
An important question is revived
in the final item of the Cabinet's po
licy. The Ministry have been charg
ed on occasions with a tendency to
increase the evils of centralization,
which were among the causes of dis
affection toward the previous ad
ministration. Some of the legisla
tion of the last Legislature gave a
good deal of color to this accusation.
Now, however, the Cabinet admit
the fact of excessively centralized
power, attributing it by implication
to a want in our system. They re
commend measures for the gradual
extension of local self-government.
This journal has advocated the same
leform at different times. In this
as in some other matters, it will be
noticed that the Ministers only re
commend, instead of promising mea
sures declared to be desirable. Of
course ample consideration of mea
sures involving radical changes
should precede legislation, and if
the Ministry should not be prepar
ed with a well-considered bill on
any such matter, a resolution af-tlrming-its
principle, or referring it
to a selectcommisaion to prepare a
measuic for a future session, would
place thejgeneral question before the
House for free.discussion,
