^P|rfi^y*f^^Pf^^^ natural that the conservatives, whose persistent poliey of checking Irish aspirations is at last being overturned, should resent the statement attributed toJliaurier. AS a matter of fact, however, the Canadian minister was misreported. He Is too astute and experienced a states man to have been guiltv of such an in discretion. What he did say was that Canadians thoroly believed in the prin ciple of home rule which was an ob vious enough truism. If there is one thing that is dear to the heart of every Canadian it is his birthright of self government. So far as Ireland is con cerned, most Canadians are frankly puzzled to know iust whv home rule has not been conceded long aco- why it would not be just as successful and sat isfactory from an imperial point of view in Ireland as it has been in Canada or Australia. But as the London news papers say it is none of Canada's business, a Canadians are just now too preoccupied with the tremendous problems of agricultural, industrial and transportation expansion to worry their heads over transatlantic questions. The Interprovincial Conference. Interviewed since their return to their respective capitals, the provincial pre miers, with the single exception of Mr. McBridge of British Columbia, have British Interest in Canadian Affairs. An interesting controversy has been In progress between Canadian and Eng lish newspapers as to the degree of in terest taken by Englishmen in Canada's resources and development. The con troversy grow out of a statement made by Hon. Mortimer Clark, lieutenant gov ernor of Ontario, on his return from a recent visit to England, that the Brit ish people were too preoccupied with their own insular affairs to give much thought to the growth of their greatest colony. One of the London weeklies has been sufficiently interested to can vass the situation with the following result: In a period.' of ten days 2,011 inches of space were given in the lead ing British newspapers to Canadian af fairs, or about 200 inches daily, con siderably more than to all the other eolonies put together. And, concludes this paper, "in the whole 2,000 Ca nadian inches there is hardly a refer ence that is not fully appreciative of Canada's growing national status and remarkable development."

The November meeting of the state officers will be postponed to Wednesday afternoon instead of Tuesday, owing to the lunch which the society will serve at the Auditorium Tuesday evening, when the election returns are read. FROM THE LANSING BRANCH. The Sunshine branch at Lansing, Minn, has prepared a box of clothing, etc., to pend to headquarters, feeling that in the big city there must be many demands for it. A LITTLE SUNSHINER. The work that Eutli Davidson and her little brunch in Wilmot are doing lias aroused the interest of a little giri in Minneapolis, who writes to Sunshine as follows: I am a little girl, 13 years old and I have been reading about the good work that the Sunshine society haB been doing.

Ottawa, Nov. 4.Conservative news papers in England have been severelv criticizing Sir Wilfrid Laurier's al leged statement at the banquet to T.

An interesting fact brought out Laurier and his government are today in the course of these interviews is that in most of the provinces, east and west, the increased financial subsidy from the dominion will be devoted to the improvement of educational facili ties. The little red schoolhouse, in Can ada as in the United States, has always been one of the most vital factors the building up of the nation. One of the very first acts of the new legis latures of Saskatchewan and Alberta was to make ample provisions for the public schools, and the facilities thus afforded for the education of their chil dren has been a very important consid eration to those American and British immigrants who were planning to settle in the Canadian northwest. !SK8^ffl!^JSPffl^ SOCIETY MINNESOTA Courthouse, Minneapolis.

The erection commod- to their own affairs. In the existing I barracks for the policeofwere well a 10u wa It is learned from an authoritative source that next year the Canadian Northern intend to push energetically the construction of their line from Win nipeg to Hudson Bay. I is already completed to the Saskatchewan river. When Mr. Mann, of Mackenzie & Mann, was here a few days ago, he stated that the opening of the Hudson Bay route was only a question of a year or two. The reports received from explorers sent north by the Canadian government go to show that Hudson Straits are navig able for five months of the year, and perhaps even longer. This is almost as long as the period of navigation on the St. Lawrence, and there is no longer any reason to doubt that once a rail way has been completed to the shores of the bay, and a line of suitably con structed vessels placed' on the route from Churchill to Liverpool, the com mercial success of the undertaking is assured. In fact 'many well-informed transportation men claim that, in view of the saving in time as compared with any of the existing routes to the At lantic seaboard, the Hudson Bay route must sooner or later capture the bulk of grain shipments from the west to Europe. There is an impression in western Canada that the east is opposed to the opening of the Hudson Bay route. This may be the case so far as a few narrow-minded men are concerned, but heartily in sympathy with the desire of western Canada for an outlet for their produce by way of Hudson bay, and may be relied on to further that object any way in their power. Winnipeg Labor Party. Considerable interest is taken in po litical circles here in the recent organi zation of a labpr party in Winnipeg, to form a part of the proposed inde pendent labor party decided upon at the last convention of the Trades and Labor congress. There are already three or four avowedly labor men in the Canadian house of commons, and present indications point to a consid erable increase in the number at the next general election. What effect this may have on the political situation it is hard to say, but if the labor inter ests succeed in electing a sufficient number of their own men to form a strong group in parliament, they may be able to control the situation and secure legislation $hat would now be impossible. French Demand for Semolina. The British consul general at Mar seilles reports that Canadian millers should inquire into the possibility of supplying the demand at Marseilles for grammar flour (semolina). The im pression prevails in Canada that gran ular flour cannot travel well, but this is a mistake. The sole cause of de terioration in transit is defective mill ing. The grain should not be washed when cleaned. The process is a simple one, as every Minneapolis miller knows. There is a steady demand in France for this species of flour, and the hard wheats of Manitoba and Saskatchewan are peculiarly well adapted to its manu facture.

Strong of Leeds, N. D., of new flannel clothing for infantssomething Sunshine is always in need of and for which it is exceed ingly grateful. From Mrs. Lina Jacobs of Columbia, S. D., comes the offer of a box of clothing for needy ones. Mrs. Jacobs writes that she has followed with lov ing interest the work as reported in The Journal, and she "wants to ex tend a hand in the good work. The clothing is gladly accepted, for as the weather grows colder there are many demands. A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. Sunshine has a good position offered to the woman or girl who likes farm life. A position is offered at $16 a month, where the work is not hard, and the position will permanent. The offor comes from Fairmount, Minn., and the very bebt of references are given. The parties wish someone who could be companionable and be treated in a large degree as a member of the family. WANTS SOME SUNSHINE. A deserving woman, whom Sunshine is trying to help, would like a child's bed and a baby .carriage. Some strips of carpet, too, will be greatly appreci ated aud make the Dare rooms more cheerful. WHO HAS SEWING? The invalid girl for whom Sunshime made a plea for the rent of a wheel chair, would like to secure some fancy sewing, which she doea very well and at reasonable prices.
