Sonator Qalliugor of Now Hamp
shire has introduced a resolution in
vitiug tho annexation of Canada.
Ho said it was writlmi by a strong
advocate of continental union, a
member for nine years of tho Domin
ion Parliament, and who is now con
nected with a Now York paper. Ho
asked that tho resolution bo roforred
tot tho Committee on Foreign Af
fairs. There does not seem to bo any
urgent need for such a resolution at
the present time. Our relations
with Canada are amicable, cr, at
least, not less so than they havo
boon for somo years, and nothing
calls upon us to make advances in
tho direction of political union. In
deed, it is tho prevailing sentiment,
wo think, among the people of the
United States that annexation, if it
como about at all, should como in
response to a request on tho part of
Canada to bo admitted to tho Union.
There can bo no mistake about tho
correctness of this viow if tho press
of the United States is to bo takou
as an iudex of public opinion.
This being so, tho resolution in
troduced by Sonator Ualliuger,
should it bo adopted, might bo pro-
ductivo of more harm than good. It
you iu curiam ly arouse am crystal-
lizo all tho anti-anin'xation sonti-
,mmt nmo,B tm, Canadians and
might givo rise to long and tedious
diplomatic i correspondence with
Great Britain, which, while it does
not care specially for Canada, would
probably protest vigorously against
its absorption by the United States.
If Canada over becomos a part of
the American Union it must be by
the act of tho Canadians and our ac
ceding to their request. It is a
matter for thorn to determine, not
for us, and all we can do is to keep
quiet until they get ready to como
in. That annexation will come in
time is almost a foregone conclu
sion, but, even if tho United States
wanted to do so, it cannot hasten
tho movement any more than it can
advance the process of evolution,
except by war, which is, so far as
can bo judged, wholly out of tho
question. .S. F, Clmniich .
