generally there may be an unpleasant friction between the Dominions and the Moth er That Canada and the other Domin ions should be consulted respecting the conditions of peace is eminently Such consultation was prom ised by the British Government long and there need be iio doubt that the promise will be But 11 is not clear at present that Canada or any other Dominion is to havu a spe clal representative at the Peace Con We do not think that any thing of the kind was promised by tin imperial It will be veil for us all to hcmember while Canada has during the past couple of which It wants

Brit ish will doubtless desire to pay all to the wish of the Overseas Dominions as ex pressed ja the course of the consulta tions that will take place between the Imperial and Colonial But it is just possible that it may be found impracticable to have any special rep resentative of any of the Dominions at tbe Peace If one is re cognized by the Imperial Government as entitled to such the others must have similar If a Canadian is given a room must be found also for representa tives of New South Africa and If Canada is to claim admission for Its six Cab inet Ministers who are to be in Eng now

every prob ability that Great Britain will not be to claim seats at the table for her Colonial Ministers as well as for the Imperial as a mat ter of will be the chief repre sentatives of His We shall not do well to count too much on the admission to the Conference of our six or any of So far as Canada 13 concerned no body needs be alarmed it it is not found convenient to give her repre sentatives seats at the Peace Confer Prank consultation between our Minister and the Imperial Ministers to be expected and we need not doubt that the Imperial Government will desire to show us all fair consid But if our views have to find expression the Peace Conference through Lloyd George or Bal there is no reason to fear that any interest of ours will While the Australian and South African col onies
