Ottawa, Out., Sept. 1.Americans
naturally are not particularly inter
ested in the domestic affairs of their
neighbors in the north, except where
the interests of the two countries
meet, or clash, but the points of con
tact seem to increase from year to
year. Nowadays American readers
cannot afford to be indifferent to what
goes on in the Dominion. Questions
are being- dealt with on this side of
the international boundary which are
vitally important to the people of the
United States. Canada is no longer
a weak-kneed colony, with no possible
future but one of dependence upon
England. She is fast approaching the
dignity of nationhood. Indeed, to all
intents and purposes, she is now prac
tically a*i independent nation, making
her own laws, managing her own af
fairs as she sees fit, and, within cer
tain limits, adjusting her own foreign
relations with the outside world.
The Grand Trunk Pacific.
The most important question dealt
with by the federal parliament this
year was, of course, the contract with
the Grand Trunk Pacific for the con
struction of a second Canadian trans
continental railroad from Moncton,
on the Atlantic, to Port Simpson, or
some other point, on the Pacific. The
Pacific terminus has not yet been ab
solutely settled. Port Simpson was
originally intended- to be the ter
minus, but the decision of the Alaskan
boundary commission which gave to
the United States a couple of islands
within easy striking distance of Port
Simpson, may induce the Dominion
government to insist upon the selec
tion of a terminus farther south, tho
Port Simpson is admitted to be by all
odds the best harbor on the Pacific
coast of Canada.
Mr. Borden, the leader of the op
position, sprang a surprise on the
government by coming out flatfooted
for national ownership of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. At first Sir Wilfrid
Laurter and his ministers were in
clined to treat the idea as a joke, but
as days and weeks went by it became
evident that the press of the country
was taking the matter seriously, and
that there was a widespread and in
creasing sentiment thruout Canada in
favor of national ownership, in spite
of the rather depressing financial his
tory of the Intercolonial, Canada's ex
isting national railroad.
Mr. Borden's policy was rejected by
the government, but it would not sur
prise some people if, when the gov
ernment appeals to the electorate, the
country comes out strongly for na
tional ownership. Mr. Borden has
pledged himself, if the people give
him a mandate to that effect, that
he will make the Grand Trunk Pacific
a national railroad, in spite of the
fact that the federal government has
definitely signed a contract for the
construction of the road.
Largeness of View Characterises Her Public MenAd-
ministration Strong in Dealing With the Domin*
ion's Trade Policy, but' Weak on the
Alien Labor Proposition.
Canada's Trade Policy.
One of the striking evidences of the
Increasing importance of the west is
furnished in connection with the Ca
nadian tariff. There is no doubt that
very strong pressure was brought
upon the federal administration this
year to Increase the tariff, especially
against the United States. The pow
erful Manufacturers' association sent
612 Nicollet Avenue,
the farmers as well as the manufac
turers, western as well as eastern
Canada, should have an opportunity
to go thoroly into the conditions and
report as to what, if any, changes
had better be made in the tariff as it
The government is now consider
ing the appointment of this commis
sion, and probably before the open
ing of 1905 it will have data before
it on which to base a decision. It
may safely be said, however, that the
administration is satisfied that the
moderate revenue tariff at present in
force is the best for Canada, and that
a policy of retaliation against the
United States is a two-edged sword,
which would be very likely to do most
damage to the hand that wields it.
The Alien Labor Bill.
While the government here showed
itself strong and far-sighted in its
handling of the tariff policy, it was
lamentably weak in the way it dealt
with the proposed alien labor legisla
tion. Pandering to the labor vote in the
east it drafted a bill which while fol
lowing the lines of the amended
United States alien labor act, went
even farther in its provisions for
keeping out foreign labor which might
come into competition with the home
Somewhat to the surprise of the
government strong opposition devel
oped especially as to the more drastic
provisions of the act,, many influen
tial members of parliament, among,
supporters of the administration as
well as its opponents, urging that the
measure was contrary to the best in
terest of the Dominion, and must lead
admosf inevitably to istrained rela
tions with the United States.
At the same time the bill con
tained several really important pro
visions, such as that designed to reach
those on this side who have been in
the habit of inducing foreigners to
come into the country under false
representations that there was work
awaiting them, and the sections pro
viding against the entry of undesir
The bill was confessedly a retalia
tory measure, in reply to the alien
labor laws of the United States, and
as it was of a reciprocal nature, ap
plying only to such countries as en
force similar laws against Canadians,
would only have been effective against
Americans so long as the United
States maintained its existing alien
laws. At the same time there is a
strong feeling on the part of thinking
men in this country that a young and
growing nation like Canada cannot
afford to indulge in retaliatory legis
lation. Her first object is to secure
population and capital, and nothing
discourages immigration and the in
vestment of foreign capital so much
as retaliatory legislation.
deputation after deputation to Otta- his hand, with a command of the facts
wa, representing the urgent necessity
of raising the Dominion tariff to a
level with that of the United States,
and for a time it seemed as if the
cabinet would be forced to do at least
something in this direction to satisfy
At the same time it was well un
derstood that Manitoba and the north
west were solidly against any increase
in the tariff. Western Canadians,
while willing to bear their fair share
of taxation for the good of the whole
country, are prepared to kick, and
kick vigorously, against any attempt
to exploit the west simply for the
benefit of eastern Canadian manufac
The government, with unusual far
sightedness, listened to the voice of
the west, and decided that there
would be no tinkering with the tariff
until a commission, representing all
the great interests of the country
Personal Side of Parliament.
John Charlton, the champion of
reciprocity, whose failing health kept
him away from parliament most of
this session, is never seen in the house
of commons except in a silk hat,
which he wears pretty well down over
his eyes. But let any man assail the
advantages of reciprocity, and the
member for North Norfolk is on his
feet like a shot, with his silk hat in
and figures relating to this great trade
question before the marshaling of
which his enemies have to retire in
The prime minister, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, is too much of a gentleman of
the old school to wear his hat in par
liament, even with the precedent es
tablished by the imperial house of
commons at Westminster. He is un
questionably the most striking per
sonality in the Canadian legislature.
Tall, with erect carriage and firm
step, he carries his years much bet
ter than many a younger man. His
face is that of a statesman, strong,
compelling, intellectual. His head
bears a remarkable likeness to that of
his former great political opponent,
Sir John Macdonald, as the latter's
did to that of Disraeli. Like Mac
donald, he wears his hair long, and
brushed back from his high, intellec
tual forehead. He possesses much
of the great conservative leader's per-

BRITISH EARL DROWNS
CAREER AND DEATH OF WALKER
IN MANITOBA ARE ENVELOPED
Special to The Journal.
Winnipeg, Man., Sept. 1.On the
banks of the Assiniboine at Brandon,
just north of Hanbury's mill, a man's
clothing was found late yesterday af
ternoon, and investigation proved that
it belonged to Albert W. Walker, an
employee of the Hanbury Milling com
pany, who is missing and whose dis
appearance is shrouded in mystery.
On Sunday Walker told his employ
ers the astounding story that he had
received a letter from solicitors in
England telling him that after sixty
years of litigation the English courts
had declared him the rightful Earl
Fitzwilliam. Question originally arose
as to the legitimacy of the great grand
father of the missing man, and finally
he w&s declared to be the legal child.
The estates that go with the title
are the richest in England and Ire
land and the title is one of the noblest,
Walker telling his friends that his in
come would be $500,000 a year. So
elated was he that he has lately been
purchasing wine for his fellow em
The case looks like accidental drown
ing, and this theory is strengthened
by'the fact that Walker had been in
the habit of swimming early every
morning, and also by the fact that he
was almost drowned a few days ago.
The river is now being dragged'.
