Xkw York, Dec 20. Honor Mercier,
premier minister of tbe province ot Quebec,
who is in this city on his way to Salem,
Vans., where he ia to address an assomhluga
of French Canadians on Monday evening, in
an interview yesterday on tbe present polit
ical situation to Canada, sai l: "There isnt
much talk of annexation just now, lent there
is a general fcelmg in favor of some polit-fc-al
change. There ia, however, a respecta
ble portion of th community iu. favor of
maintaining the present 'condition of af
fairs. As concerning the proportion of
Canadians in favor of the continuance of the
present slitical system, I cannot say exact
ly, but I believe they are quite numerous
and iinsii1ant, socially politically and finan
cially. IHtided Relweew Threw hcheraea.
"Tinea who most favor a change are di
vided I et ween three schemes-imjierial fed
erations annexation and iiidejtondcnoe.
Very few, 1 tielieve, outside the ultra royal
ists ace in favor of imeriul federation, and
1 may add that there am but few real Cana
dians, either French, KiirIisIi. Hootch or
Irish, in favor of the scheme. Of course Sir
John A. MacDonald, the prime minister of
Canada, w ho is a Scotchman bv birth, is in
favor of that scheme. Of the French Cana
dians you could not find ten disposed to
speak in favor of imperial federation. 1
need not add that I have no faith at all in
the siuve- of the scheme, the general feeling
among the immense majority of Canadians
is'tiij; iti the opjMisite direction that is to
any, iu favor ot a separation from F.nglnnd.
The date of tliat separation is tho secret of
history and will depend very much upon
qinst ions of tariff, fisheries, and others of a
meral importance concerning, perhaps,
r lore tlie relation lad ween Canada and the
L'nitd States than the relations la-tween
Canada and F.nlau.1.
Aa t Annetatlon.
'"After iniarial toleration comes the ques
tim of annexation. There is no doubt a re-KHS-talli
uumlsT of Canadians favoruldo to
anik'xation. It is no use denying the fact.
Those who do it are cither ignorant or hypo
critcs. As to the projiortioii in favor of the
scheme, that question cannot le answered,
uo votes havini; ever been taken, and there
Wing no practical means of ascertaining
public opinion on the sulj.st.

1 la lieve tliey are very numerous and that
tbey form the most iinrartant or1ion, from
certain siiuts of view, of our population.
They are important socially, politically, and
tiiiancially, and they ns-ruit themselves for
a preat part from the ymuug men. w ho have
naturally more lllieral teudencies and a
gruater dis.osition for iuilependence. They
are proud to call themselves Canadians, hut
