New International Relations
From tbe Toronto Ont Times
Tbo broad stream ot Amorlcan farmors
pouring Into Canada was viowod with
alarm by somo observers who feared
that tho Canadian West would be Amer
icanized and would Ioso touch with Im
perial and even with Canadian eontl
mont Now an alarm of a different kind
Is raleed by tho Now York Times Tho
Times says that no fewer than 7370 ot
Unolos Sams sons changed their alle
giance last year and it is now said
that tho total of oltlxens wo have pro
sontod to Canada havo reached 40000 in
the laBt half dosen years Boforo that
time It would hardly havo been thought
possible it has eeemodso natural for
olbernatlooalltlos to becomeAmerlcane
but so contrary to tbe course of nature for
Americans to forswear their country
Editors Note Tho Times is In error
Americans do oot forswear their coun
try in becoming naturalized Canadian
The explanation is simple Perhaps
somo of the newcomers had been brought
up in the belief that Canada waa a down
trodden colony wherein liberty with
ered under the shadow ot monarchical
and aristocratic Institutions Tbey
found that Canada was as free as their
own country and that their change of
home meant tittle more than a removal
from Ohio to Minnesota On the other
hand If the Canadians In tbe weBt fear
ed that the newcomers would bo imbued
with revolutionary Ideasthat fear would
be speedily dispelled by oloeer acquaint
ance The American farmer is usually
a nara neaueu practical zeiiow witn a
strong vein of conservatism in bis char
acter He wants to farm in the most
modern way to make money bv farm
ing to take plenty of enjoyment out of
life to give als women folks all tbe
comforts and conveniences that are
available and to have the best possible
eaucauon lor Dts cutiaren He will not
quarrel with Institutions that afford htm
these ad vantages
Will patriotism American or Can
adian suffer by tho Interchange ot pop
ulation and the knowledge thereby
gained V Rational patriotism will not
suffer No patriotic eltlzen ot Canada
or of the United States will regret that
tbe people of the two countries are
learning to understand each other
Tbe development ot eaeh country the
national ambition ot each country will
be furthered by the clearing away of
those misunderstandings which else
where create danger of war
An English writer once proposed an
arrangement by which a man could
hold citizenship in the BrltiBh Empire
and in the United States at the same
time The idea seems fanolful today
but it may be realized in the future
Why should International relations be
regarded as absolutely fixed and rigid
and Incapable of development and pro
gress A century ago the relations
now existing between the United King
dom and the Belt governing colonies
would baye been inconceivable A new
conception ot international relations Is
being developed on this continent
where the United States and Canada
lie Bide by side for thousandi of miles
with unguarded frontiers The ease
with which one citizenship is renounc
ed and another taken up may give a
shook to some old fashioned ideas but
it may be only one of the features oi a
new order of international relations
