It might not iie a aate bet that even the Premier will be there. Host of the sentlemaii whoJe portraits are shown .are.part ^of a trade inlsilori which'th^ Government are sending to England. It Is assumed that there wlU be a large demand in Xijirope tor food and materials, and that a trade mission will be able to secure a share of the business for Canada. Tbe aim Is gooil, and the mission will have the best wishes of the Canadian public. But it has nothing in the world to do with the Peace Conference. - The Journal of Commerce, Moni. W. S. Fielding's weekly, in a vorj- pertinent article on this auestlon, says: * It is not wise for Canadians to expect too large .a part In the work,ujf the Peace {Conference. Already the energetic. If not always diacreet..Premier of Australia, Mr. Hughes, is found complaining that the tttrms of the armisticQ were signed without having first been vlaeed by him. The Ovenseas Dominions, Canada included, have taken a large and important part In the war, winning greats honor. They will increase rather than diminish that honor if they manifest modesty in th^ demands for participation � in the S^tlement of the terms of peace'. If the somewhat aggressive "spirit exhibited by Mr. Hughes |j-espectlng the armistice is to mark the attitude of the Dominions generally {.here may be an unpleasant friotioh heiween tile Dominions and the Mother ^Country. , That Canada and the other Dominions should be consulted respecting the conditions of' peace is eminently proper. Such consultation was prom ised by the British Government long ago, and there, need be.iio doubt that the" promise' �vrtll. be kept Hut it is not clear at present that-Canada or any other Dominion Is to have 'a sp� clal representative at the Peace Con ference- We do not think that any thing of the kind was promised by thl {imperial authorities. .
