The mother luul settled with Kaufman for .$i:.o, which will lie deducted from the amount. ' "Once upon a time, thia is also, a matter of hiatory, the conviction of every Anierlcan citizen was that the Canadian Confederation should become a part of the American Union. Recent events have shown that there are still men in the U. S. who harbor that hope. But there are also men who are beginning to percieve that the Republic, though its career has been glorious, has yet many questions to aotve and many dangers to face and many of them are beginning to recognize tha't thf solution of the^ir difficult problems would be aarlously complicated, perhaps fatally impaired if In the territory of the republic was to be included another territory as large as their own with a people not yet aa numerous, but destined to be as numerous aa their own, with problems of their own also to solve and whose union with the United States would only add to the complications of their own that the American people have to solve. If my poor voice could Bb heard through the length and breadth of this country, and if without any preaumptton. it could be heard also beyond the frontier, I would say to our American neighbors that flattering as it may be to their pride, the idea that the territory of the republic should extend over the whole continent from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the waters of the Are-tic ocean, to remember that we Canadians were born under the same flag as were your ancestors, a flag under which perhaps they may have suffered some oppression but which to us has been and ia more than ever the emblem of freedom; remember that if /ou^have founded a nation upon a separation from the Mother land, we Canadians have set our hearts upon buifding up a nation without separation; that in this tatk we are already far advanced with our institutions, with our national entity as a people and with everythinjl that constitutes a nation, to which we are Juat aa devoted.^a you are to yours. Remember that the blood which flews in our veins is as good, just as good, as your own, and that if you are a proud people, though we have not your numbers we are just as proud as you are and rathltr than part with our national exiatence we would part with our livcB./fif my voice could be heard that far, I would |p�Mume to aay to our American friends, there may be a spectacle perhaps nobler yet than the spectacle a united continent, a aptctacle which would astonish the world by Its novelty and grandeiir, a spectacle of two people living side by side for a distance of four thousand miles, a line which is hardly visible in many quarters, with not a cannon, with not a gun frowning across it, with not a fortress on either side, with no armament one against another, but living In harmony, in mutual confidence and with no other rivalry than generous emulation In commerce and the arts of peace.^ "To Canadian people I would say that if it is possible for us to obtain such relations between these two young and growing nations, Canada will have rendered to Old England, Mother of Nations,-nay to the whole British Empire,-a service unequalled in its present effect and still more in its far reaching consequencaa." agreeirent lacked force tor opposition Others were worthy of consideration, not from inherent strent;lh but from circtinislanres that they were inspired by a strange misconception as to wlial would he tile result and conse- (Special to the Herald) Calgary, March >.-The aub committee of the miners and operators are still endeavoring to come to soma arrangement on the doted thop quae-tion.
