Coronation. A NATION, AN ElVtPIBE, OR A UNltWd OF NATIONS! .% .yPBRIALISM, Nationalism, or a| I Third Alternative is the subject '' of a very able and carefully rea-JMined article in the latest issue of the University Monthly, by one uaing  Ahe name "A Westerner," whose Iden-I tlty the reader may only surmise. The I article is worthy of most careful study \ ty every Canadian and by every citizen of what is called the British Empire. One may not .agree with all ler saya, nor draw hia conclusions from his arguments, but every one win agree with some of the state- ' inents and tbe others will make him j ^hlnk. ^ Tbe idea of nationality, he says, )iea j behind every possible destiny that has : yet been suggested for Canada. Inde-i pendence means the estabilshment of - a Canadian "nation"; annexation ' means absorption into the American i "nation," and Imperialism really ; means the overflow across the various ; portions of the earth, Canada includ-; led, of the British "nation." The writ-! !er promptly rules the second out ot ! the range of posalbility and discussea the sther two, and then sugsests the tbir^i alternative. Arguing that nationality is like personality and cannot be cut in two, tbe writer claims that it is absurd for any-! one to say he belongs to both the Ca-  nadian and British nations. And from i tbig is explained the slow advances ^ade toward either Canadian indepen-rdence or Imperial unity. "The reason belle\'e," says Westerner, "is this; that Canadians are becoming dimly conscious that the idea of 'nati^onallty' ; Is of an older, outworn age, and ara 1 groping slowly but steadily towards f, an ideal that will evolve the harm^>n-les of tbe future rather than preserve 5 the antagonisms of the past." Canadians do not �want to enter the list of quarraling nations, riv ilHog each other with armies and na ;ei. 'The last nation' in the old sense, was born In 178:{. It is certain that there will never be another. It is too late in the day," "It is the same, slowly developfng dissatisfaction with the old 'national �Ideal' that keeps the Imperial unity  plan from advancing, because 'nation' allsm is still the very core of Imperialism, except that here it is the British 'nationality' which is to be exalted." '. "Westerner" then proceeds to argue ithat "Imperialism," from the meaning of the word, and from the origin and developing of the ideal must mean "'"inequality," the rule of a dominant ['power, an Imperium. "The main difficulty wMch Imperialism is bound to imeet arises froni the fact that its real devotees are quite obviously proposing * the development of one Imperial nation as a means of ..unity, and that na- ;;Hon they intend shall be the Brltlab ' ftation.'' These people call Canadtana 'ovevrseas Britons' and talk of 'over ONE TOUCH OF ICINDNBSS The Kiss (Skatoh.) The reason Canadians do not enter Into such a- purpose witn enthusiasm la that they cannot possibly feel that the mere national iaeal, whether Canadian, American or British, will ever satisfy them. That is a legacy of the past, not a promise of the future. . By the inevitable association of Ideas, derived from the facts ol past and present history. Imperialism suggests either the absolute domination of a coiintry by an sxternal power, or the Indivisible unity of a single nation absolutely sovereign over all its parts. This is. why Imperialism will not, and can not, succeed in Canada.' What is the third alternative?^ To use the writer's own words: "Canadians win, i believe, find this way il) by u simple and plain rejection of Im-perlallam, '?rith all ita inevitable im-pilcatlong and t2) by simple and plain And openly avowed modification, amounting In effect to a rejection of the pure Nallonalism of Europe. To do these things, we must not talk of 'the iJrapire,' but rather of 'the United Nations.' Tbe self-governing Domin ^p^B ahouid sp develop their strength, their importance and their autonomy in its widest sense, as to show the world tUat they clearly and undeniably might, if they so wished, declare their independence and assume their places among the present nations as the equals of. the best of them; but they fhoutd, nevertheless, deliberately and {'conacibuaiy refrain from this declaration." . " - -The- adoption of a poliiical terminology which will express their polltl-l alternative" atig-Igested by "Weaterner." In general I principle it looks desirable; in general I outline it looks feasible. He do^s not advocate its immediate adoption, as no doubt none of the parties concerned are ready tor it. but it is au Ideal the final attainment of which would eliminate the somewhat apparent in-icongruity of national and imperial ideals held at one time by the same people. OUR POINT OF VIEW The police are slaying dogs by the score these days, but the price of sausages has not gone down at all. Ooes any one in Lethbridge with lots to sell think the values are placed too high? lines as there wi-re In the others. Sas-katchewans ac'ion alone can be taken as a mandate from that province to Nd'a in De o-nber, and demanded among other things, reciprocity with the United States. Two weeks ago he voted in the Manitoba leglsla ture against reciprocity. Mr. Lyie might explain. Premier Scott says that Hon. Clif- ^ ford Slfton will be like Joe Chamber-! lain. We will forgive him if he does j just so long as he does not wear a monocle. I Think of the fame that will come to the "garden city" of Magratb because the .man whose n^mo it bears is going to the Coronation as an official representative of Canada. Jim .McCaig cannot get Toronto female teachers fo come out to Edmonton with a promise that they will get married In a short time. The only thing to do Jim, is to raise the Pdlar-les. The decision of Hon. G. P, Graham that the government will build the Hudson's Bay railway is quite in accord with the wishes of the people ol Western Canada, who are, perhaija. the most concerned. seas states' or 'siater states,' but are [apeak for him but to speak directly xtremely shy of adopting the Ajrpres-his name and WITH his name, as Bion 'sister nations.' For them there !s to be but one nation that ahall be-straddle the world. . . . The real Imperialists who live in the British Isles look upon their own proposals altogether as a means of atrengthonlng and expanding the nation to which they belong. . . . These Imperialists know perfectly well that Cana^-i4ns cannot belong to two nations at the same time, and it la the British nationality, not Canadian nationality ; 't.hat they are choosing." thp Lords Commissioners often do in Lqndcft." He advocates the appolnt-liient of, the Chief Justice of Canada to bo the King's "Chief Justisiar." In tftis way, tbe King, who could occa-stonally visit the Parliaments to open them, a^d could always have his 'igpe^ph from the throne" approved and read for hihi when he could not be pri^s�nt,'biit in all he would place Canada-00 as equality with Britain in ,|hlB rijyal ofllcos. i "Let us-get rid ot the badges of de- Will the manufacturers take President Taft's word that Messrs. Fielding and Paterson refused to accept free trade in manufactured goods? The statement verifies the statement of Sii Wilfrid Laurier that there was no intention to sacrifice the manufacttiring iniereata of the country. Those who maintain that t)ie government has no mandate from the people on the reciprocity issue doubtless are quite willing to confess that ihc legislatures of the different provinces have much less of a mandate to oven express an opinion on the subject. The party jnajority of British Columbia, or Manitoba or Ontario does not represent the people on the Issue. The only one that can'be called tn'any way representative i� that �f Baskatchowun where the whole house was unanimous, there beln? xo dt\rlal6ns on parly Might Lead Jhem Onward (Calgary Albertan.) The .strongest man in the Cpn�erva-,| tlve ranks in Western Canada today is V. W. G. Haultain, who came out and placed his coimtry before hU party upon the reciprocity agreement. If .Mr. Haultain was at the head 6f tbe Conservatives, the party nrilght start tor some place, some timd, and get there or part way there. Hard to Understand (Calgary Albertai).) The Lethbrldge Board of Trade sanctioned the reciprocity agreement by a good majority but the surprise is that a city like Lethbridge, in tbe coke-making zone, the nearest b||f city to the south, which has so much to gain by this agreement, should bsva within its boundaries one single person who would vote against it. . Disappeared (Calgary Albertan.) With the action of the Southern Alberta Boards of Trade and the Saskatchewan legislature, the Calgary Herald immediately climbed a tree and -drew Us tattered, frayed and copfuslng i^r-guments, as well as the tree, .up after it. The Case in a Nutshell (Montreal Heraldi) The effect of the reciprocity agreement oh the mining industry IS rather finely put by .Mr. G. H. Gillespie, of Madoc, in a letter to the Canadian Mining Journal, and as tiie same thing ftp-plies to a great many other Indtistriea it is worth considering. The real effect is, says Mr. Gillespie, "that we get free entry to half a continent on equal terms with American producers, apd In that territory get the same protection from European competition as.dg United States producers tlieroseives. In return for this the United S^tes gets entry into our limited raarkat, where it has to compete wittt Kurdpean products that are not protected," And as Mr. Gillespie saya, "does^thla look like !bad business?"
