Tho most con , 1 iplcuous Increase lias lioen In the north- re Treat, but ovon thcro It has been actually ' "mall as compared with tho growth to which we nreaocuBtomodon Uih sldoof the border. Tho disappointment of tho Canadians is . the keener bocauso the Dominion Oovcrn ' went mode oxtraordlnnry efforts during tho i last ten ycar3 to stimulate Iinmlginlion and euooeeded bo far as to bring In ntoro than 850,000 foreigners. Yot tho gain In popula tion according to tho census Is only about bolt a million. It Is obvious that tho great I majority of tho now comers passed ov er tho border to us. In seeking to draw Immigra tion to Itself tho Dominion has swollon the stream whioh pours Into this country far more than it has securetl now scttlei3 ' Xoritaovvntcriltoiy.

Tho returns show that tho raloof Incroaso of tho population is declining and Ha declining greatly, nnd tlio dccreiso is likely Bt to continue. Instead of competing with us, Canada Is helping our growth. Instead Cli of Keeping stop with out progic-s, nfil It is falling behind more nnd mor,', IKQ and is becoming mors and moio H Inslguilloant as compared with us. B It Is a now and undeveloped countiy, B ; with fljmptoms of docreptitudo as matkod fl i as thoso which appear In an old and a fully B developed country. It has no future, of B i progress and prosperity to which it ran B ; lotik fotward. As an Independent Covera ll I ment besido this growing and multiplying Bh republic It has no chaneo.

" Does tho phc- MBJI nomenon," asks tho Toronto Globe, "sustain HB tho tuerry that wo are living under tlio best IBB of alltiade pulliles r" UB But then) 1a no policy which enn sno nB Canada from retrocession so long as BR ' It continues apart f lorn tho United hta'es. flfl Jf that eeparatlon contluui's, the decllno In UBJ the rato of Increase of popul ttlon from o er BBJ IT per cent, between 1871 nnd lSbl to 11J HBj per cent, during tho next decade Is likely BH to be continuous In tlio next centuiy. HH The futuro offers no hopo which tho BBJ Ust ten years did not piosont, and tho BBJ Canadians ere compelled to faco tho gloomy BJB prospect. Thov havo loaded themsches Hfl with debt tosocure progicss and piospeiity, BBJ ' and yet, except In tho northwest, they aro BM standing Btlll, Thoir richest piovinces aro BU the most stagnant. HM Of oourse, this state of things cannot con- eBM tlnue.
