NOTHING OVER 25(\ An unwritten page in the history of Canada has just been revealed in a letter written by Sir Charles Tupper to AI. K. YV. Villeneuve, of Montreal, concerning the monument to Sir Geo. E'.ienu-e Cartier. In his letter Sir Charles speaks of the formation of the government after Confederation, thus giving to Canada and- Canadians the first authentic story of this work, and the sacrifice made by him to help his two friends, Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir George Ktienne Cartier, 'to term the cabinet. The letter is as follows: "I have more than once shown my appreciation of that great statesman, Sir George Etienue Cartier, during his lifetime. "After meeting the delegates on Confederation, at Charlottetown, Halifax, St. John, Quebec and London, I formed the opinion that the combination of John A. Afacdonald and Geo. E. Cartier was essential to the best Interests of Canada. When Sir John A. Macdonald was called upon to form the first government of the Confederation, I was invited to assist and to bring Mr. Archibald, the leader of the opposition to my government, with me. Mr. Cartier said that he must have two Krench members with him. Gait was Indispensible as the representative of the English in Quebec, and D'Arcy McGee was the only representative of the Irish Catholics. Messrs. Hoyland and Macdougall refused to join the administration unless Ontario hiul a larger number of ministers than Quebec, as they would not otherwise carry Ontario. Sir John said that a3 Nova Scotin and New Brunswick must have two members each, that made the government too large. , , "A deadlock then occurred, and weiof the beverage were inviied to meet at the council chamber at 11 o'clock, as lie had decided to abandon tlw task, and rc-fiuest l^ord Monck to send for Mr. George Brown. In this crisis I told Mr. McGee that If he would stand aside. T would do the same, and make way tor Hon. E. Kenney to represent the Irish Catholics. When we met on Monday morning, Messrs. Howland u'nd Alacdougall had their cloaks on their arms 'to catch a train for Toronto to join George Brown, who had called a meeting to denounce any gov- j ernment formed by Sir John Macdonald. Sir John said: 'Tupper and Ale-Gee have solved the difficulty,' The government was formed, they caught the train, and carried the meeting, and afterward the country. "I returned to Nova Scotia, obliged to confess that th-a Liberal party had two members in the government, and none for the Conservatives. I also refused the clKiirmanship of the intercolonial railway, with a handsome salary, in order to secure 'the support of Air. Howe and the Nova Scotia govern menl in support of Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir George Ktienne Car-tier." Sir Charles Tupper, who takes great interest in the work of the Cartier centenary committee. Is now in his ill st year, and notwithstanding enjoys the best of health. The' committee hopes to hav
