THE Dominion of Canada Is celebrating the bi-centenary of -Confederation. But what .Is Confederation? Within the last half century Canada has boon confederated at least twice: once when her scattered provinces wore united politically to form tho Dominion, and again when the builders of the first transcontinental Hung a line of steel across the country from the Atlantic to the Pacilic. What was Canada before Confederation? lt was a land of vast distances, mare or less uninappod, and practically unexplored west of the Great Lakes or east of ilia Rocky Mountains. When the late Sir Charles Tupper was High Commissioner of Canada In London, just a quarter of a century ago, he delivered an address at St. Petersburg, before the International Railway Congress. He described how Canada, prior to IS'67, consisted of three groups ol provinces: tho Maritime Provinces, Upper and Lower Canada, and British Columbia, These threo groups were isolated physically as well as politically. Tho Maritime Provinces were separated from "Canada"' by a wil derness of forest and flood hundreds of miles wide. Canada, In the west, was separnted from British Columbia by a thousand miles of forest, a thousand miles of prairie land, and a chain of mountains five hundred miles wide. Which was the real confederation-the one that brought the representatives of the three groups of provinces together In Parliament, or the three thousand miles of steel rails which alone made the political union worth having? Confederation was first, last and all the time a problem of transportation. British Columbia agreed to "omp In If It sot a railway from the western limit of "Canada" to the Pacific Coast and it got the Canadian Pacific. The political confederation of Canada began in 1841, when Ontario and Quebec, which hud been separated In 1791, were re-united. On July 1st, 1SG7, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united as the Dominion of Canada-tho first Federal union in tho British Empire. The Prairie Provinces were bought for �300,000 in 1870. British Columbia joined the union in 1871, and Prince Edward Island In 1873, and the inclusion of Newfoundland Is more probable every day. Who made modern Canada by making the confederation of 18G7? Certainly, no one man. Sir John Mac-donald has been styled the Maker of Canada, but, on tho other hand, Sir Charles Tupper declared a few years before his death that without Sir George Etienne Cartler there would have been no confederation. At the first interprovlnctal conference, held at Quebec in 1804, there were thirty-three representatives present, and these have been termed the Fathers of Confederation, But that was not by any means the origin of tho project. As far back as 1C90, Sir Francis Nicholson propos cd a confederation of all the Anglo-American colonies, and the Idea was revived every few yoars subsequently To the Hon. A. T. Gait belongs the honor of having first advocated lt In Parliament. That was in 1858. and his speech made a tremendous im< pression all over the country. Confederation was formally adopted as part of the programme of the Cartler Government In 1858, In the following terms "The expediency of a federal union of the North American Provinces will be anxiously considered, and communications with the Homo Government and the Lower Provinces will bo entered Into on this subject." Confederation owes its political success to tho men at Ottawa, Its economic success 13 rlno to tho railway men of Montreal. Mountstephen, Strathcona, IL B. Augus, Van Home, Ehaughnessy, who by linking the steel rails across the continent, linked up the trade between the east and west and annihilated distance. Quebec to-day Bella 70% of its manufactures, with the exception of army supplies, west of Winnipeg, and the, western pralrieB provide tho wheat for tho bread of the east. Moreover, tho railway itself has new feeders iu its fleets on both Atlantic and Pacific, which link China and Japan through Canada with the ports of Great Britain. Canada is now on the highway of traffic round the world, instead of being merely an outpost ot the Empire. From THE NEW NORTHWEST PASSAGE. (A Colloquy on the Canadian Shore.)' Canada: "Hero's your Empire routo a right ot way whose value to compute will tax the prophets." Britannia: "Links me closer still with all my wondering sons who tame and till the world's wild wastes, and throng each paradise.

Lo, far China brought within a moon or so of tea-devouring London.

A big sale of horses and cattle was held at tho farm of Mrs. Dixon, IS miles west of Maclood yesterday.

Judge McNeill's children returned homo from school for the summer holidays. Colin McLeod, who went from Maclood as an officer, was anxious to got to the firing line. He took tho rank London, July 12.-The victory of the Sinn Fein leader. Prof, de Valora, in Fast. Clan', by nearly .",.000 majority over the Nationalist candidate, Joseph Lynch, has created consternation in Nationaliit ranks and a sensation in other politic:'I circles. Kast Clare, vacated by the death of Major William Redmond, was, until the Sinn Fein developed, i'fi;,ini"d as an absolutely safe real of the Nationalist parly. He Valora. received ,".,nil voles and Lynch U.iJofi. I'Mward de Valero Is of Spanish extraction. Morn in New York he ldcn-ti'ieil himself with Irish ideals from early life and was- one of the lenders of the Faster rebellion. His oratorical rifts have added to the popularity i.'iv-ii him by his continment in an i.'ii^Iisli jail. He had adopted the pro '.rain of Faster week I'.ilO, as his platform; and he invited electors to Kite for an Irish republic of sovereign and absolute independence and incidentally, of course, for revolution, contending that if 1'lster did not acquiesce then 1'lster must go under. His very candidature was probably invalid at. common law, as he told electors frankly that, lie did not seek, and, if elected did not intend to go to the English house of commons. It i* an essential preliminary condition to the setting up of a republic, that the Nationalist party, which accordingly is now lighting for Its life be destroyed. The Sinn Fcinors (lo not hesitate to preach support of Germany, on the ground that if Germany won sho would restore the temporal power of the people. Lawrence Ginnel, M.P., has been going up ana down the constituency congratulating his countrymen that, their long wished for opportunity lias come, as Germany has England by the throat and holds her in an iron grasp.
