The Canadians might have made In "roth nnnlversuiy of the founding of Quebec this year the Justification for 1 pretentious exposition, after tho etvle of our Jamestown hippodrome, which distinguished Ametlcnn history in the year gone by, says the Springfield Re publican. The English settled nt James town in IGCiT, the French settled at Que bec In 16". One event was no more im portant than the other. Hut the Canad ians wisely reject the cOstlv exposition Idea of which the new world Is wearied, nnd have planned 11 t Pleural Inn notable fot Its oiii'inullty and rood taste. Thev will Import tho historical pageant id' 1 ftom England, nnd have tho Prince of Wales to honor the oecislon, and Brit ish, French and American naval sq-i id rons will am hnr In the St. li w r"nec during the festivities, The chief fei'ire of the program will he of In- gl e ilest permanent Interest, and that will con in In dedicating n a national park the old battlefields around Quebec. The pro posed national monument to Generals Wolfe and Montcalm nn the plains of Abiohum will b a permanent memorial Hint will distinguish tho park In the (--eg of posterity. The founding of Quebec liny be said to have been the founding of Canada. I foi although Cartler had fxplo'dl th" St. Lawrence as far as Montreal as .1 irly as l.vr. and had made a futile n 'tempt at colonization, it was not mill' i'l;im plain appeared early In the nex't centurv that a permanent foothold wa- gamed by France. Parkman has written: "Sanni'l de Ch.ampl.ain ha' hen tltly call.d the father of New Fi ince tn him were e.mbodied her religious zeit and ro-mantie- spirit of adventure p.rfore the close nf his care-e.r, purge-d nf peresv, she took the posture which 'he held to the dny of her death in erne hand the crucifix'. In the other the word. Ills life, full of significance, is the true beginning of her eventful history." One of the meist romantic figures of the parly col onial eta, Chainplaln. in 15S.1, died at Quebec, which he had founded 27 years before. He had nn great successor until Frontenac appeared nearly 40 vears Ut er that extraordinary man who, Park man si' Id, "saved the colon v and led It triumphant from an ahyss of ruin." Frontenac was the only Frenchman who was able to repulse a British attack up on Quebec. A British force had captur ed It as early as 1G20 and restored It In l'H2; but the second British attack In W when Frontenac was In his second period as governor, was unsuocpssf nl Canada remained French In government until the final and Immortal grapple be tween Wolfe and Montcalm in the mid dle of the lth century. Qup'ip-, both cltv and province, has to this day retain, d the character original ly stamped upon It to a remarkable de gree, n spite of the century nnd .1 half of British political dom. nation. Books are still being written about the so called race eon!' ' t, a pencpful conflict, to be sure betw een English and French In the Dominion: and Quebec, of course, remains as ever the eltndel nf Trench Influence! nnd Roman Catholicism. Wolfe was able to storm the heights and con eiuer the political piwer of Trance, hut tho French spirit and civilization of the 17th and lfith centuries have never been overcome-. Mr. Kipling hns recently been traveling in Canada, and something be has written within a few weeks reminds one again of the words of Parkman con cerning the city's founder, that, under Ch.implaln. New France "took the pos ture which she held to the duv of her (political) death In one hand the cruci fix, In the other the word ' The sword long ago dropped from the hand of French Canada, but the crucifix remains, and the province of Quebec to-day Is scarcely less Catholic than when the English conquered i'- nd Mr. Kipling, In a benignant mood, makes thp best nf the situation, anient impei lallstt though he be; for he writes' "There are strong oblectlons in any non-fusible, hi. lingual e.-inuuunitv within n nation, but however much the French nro made to hang back In the w-ork of development, their withdrawn and un concerned cathedrals, schools and con vents, and one aspect of the spirit that breathes from them, make for good Snys young Canada: 'There are mllllnrs nf dollars' worth of church property In the cities which aren't allowed to he taxed.' On the other hand, the Catholic schools and universities, though thev are ripoited to keep up tho old medieval distrust of Greek, teach the classics as lovingly, tenderly and Intimately as the old church has always taught them. After all, it must he woith something to say your prayers in a dialect of the tongue that Virgil Inn. lied; and ,a cer tain touch of Insolence, more magnificent and nioro ancient than the Insolence of present matetlnlUm, makes a good blend In a ncy hand." Kipling, In short, found tho rrarks of Champl.iln and the early French gov ernors and missionaries still conspicuous In tha life of to-day along tho banks of the St. Lawrence. Quebec, after 300 years, Is much less transformed than New England will be In 11120. the ter centenary of the landing at Plymouth. Hut the reasons for this aie not obscure, for New England has been and is still being swept bv successive waves of Im migration. New England Is on one of tho great hlghwnys of the world's races In their migrations toward the setting sun; while Quebec, fur lo the north, has hitherto suffeied the fate of Isolated communities. Even the now Immigration from Mill ope to Canada sweeps by It, hugely, into th golden West. CHARGED W IT 1 1 STEALING RTuO.
