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.

An interesting controversy has been
In progress between Canadian and Eng

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

Canada's growing national status and
remarkable development." When it is

The society hopes that all who accept
the opportunity offered by The Jour

the comfortable Auditorium will patron
ize the lunch the Sunshine society will
serve to raise funds for the good work.
The Journal has given the society
the privehge of serving lunch free of
charge, and with the liberal contribu

friends the expenses will be light and
nearly everything made can be used di

Only coffee, sandwiches and dough
nuts will be served. Candy will also
be on sale.
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.

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
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
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. D1VIS ON
