Dunlop's address on "Pol-itical Parties in Canada," delivered yesterday afternoon at an open inset-ing d the Mathesis club, when the Woman's Civic Club were their guests, was a masterpiece, botli in depth of Imowledge displayed, and also in the ease of m&naer with which that knowledge was imparted to his listeners, and the rapt attention of the audience was a tribute to the strong personality of the speaker. After a humorous introduction, in which he expTessed the hope that there, were ho militant suffragettes present, Mr. Dunlop proceeded to his address proper. He said, in part: "I will speak of the political history o-f Caaada, btccusc I cannot explain the political parties without explaining tb� political history. I must take you back to the early settlement of Canada. Tho&e of you who are acquainted with history, know that the French settl-ed in eastern Canada and the English in tie eastern states. As naturally English and French could not live side by side without quarrelling, war broke out, which lasted a century and a. half, until on the Plains of Abraham, the English, under Wolfe, defeatea Montcalm. I have often won-.dered what Cartier would think could he stand on Mount Royal and see the city of Montreal as it is now. Early Government - "The early government cf the French was kingly, monarchical. The habitant had no rights except what he got froitt the seigneurs, who held the land. The English were given self-gov�rmnent as soon as passible, and ?iacl a. governor and come north"trom the States, be-t>.e /redit of the provincial treasurer cause they'would not hear arms ag-wis.jUS^loi. ; ' ainst the Mother Country.

The govern- were^lJoyalist, from whteh later came (to have a government-owned railway 'executive council corresjwnds to the cabinet, the Canndi.'in senate- to .the United S'nte senate, and the HouSe ot Commons to the House of Representatives. The government of the provinces is the s&me, except that there Is a liautenant-governor in place ot the governor-general. "Sir .Tohn A. Macdonald's council of thirteen members, Uberal-Conserva-tive, was the greatest aggregate ot intellect ever got together. In 1872, the in first election after Confederation, Sir John Macdonnld won out, the only difference in the parties arising out of questions ot tariff. "In J873 Huntingdon made startling charges against the government in connection with the Pacific scandal. A commission was appointed by the government to investigate the charges against the governthEnt. In 1874 he went back after the election with only forty-five men out of 2S0. From now on it was not Ijiberal-Cohserva-tive, but Liberal and Conservative. Wllllnm McKenzIe took charge of the government. Sir John Macdonald's Policy "Sir John talked protective tariff throughout Canada, but in British Columbia he talked railroad only. In 1874 out of 20G in the House, all hut forty were Liberals, but in 1S78, Sir John went back with 86 of a majority. Rapid Accomplishment "T-he contract for the C. P. R. was signed in 1880, and in tSSfi Sir John went through the beautiful mountain scenery in his own private car.. Twenty million dollars of money was granted; twenty million acres ot land; besides station sites, freedom from taxes, and no other railroad to come between it and the United States boundary. . Great Men Prom 1891-1896, two great men arose on the Liberal side: Mr. Edward Blake and Mr. Wilfrid Laurier, -whose name goes down with that of Sir John A. ^lacdohald, head aiid shoulders above all others as politicians and states me-n. Sir Wilfrid Laurier came into power in 1896. He stood for non-interference in the Manitoba school question, though himself a Roman Catholic, and won praise of Liberal and Conservative alike. Then came the elections of 1900, 1904, 1908 and 1912. "In 1900 the chief diSference was in regard to tariff. The Liberals advocated a protective policy, while the Conservatives did not aim/to protect the manufacturer, hut to tax only such articles as might he necessary to raise the revenue. "In 1904, the difference was over the G. T. P., for w:hich we in Leth-bridge have been 5vaitjng:for ye.S-rs. A man in this city remarked recent-. ly, that he believed the G. T.

Joseph HoTve foiight'for responsible gov-e'rnment in Nova Scotia, and Lemuel Wilmot accomplished the same jthlng in New Brunswick. "In 1840, appeared such men as Sir John A. Macdonald, Cartier and Brown. An aet was passed uniting the two provinces, French and Loyalist, i The new. parties now formed were: ;Tfa� Party Rouge, which was opposed to priestly influence, and Cler.

One-seventh of all lands' had been given to the Protestant clergy, which all denominations claimed,' Sir John Macdonald tried to frgcularlze these lands, and he also advocated xhe abolition of seigneurial tenure in Quebec. "In 1854, he won out. His mixed than a railway-owned government. "In 1908 the Conser-vativte alleged the Liberal party was giving away government lands.' The Conseiratives promised that the provinc;?? should be given control of lands. "In 1911 the difference was over annexation to the United States. "There are no differences in the political parties now, but in their method of working.' Neither side can make a movement without being �closely watched liyf the other."
