J. A. Calder. The complacency of the Prime Minister iaUBt have been liiuc-Iy disturbed by' the result ol the .East Elgin election, and whatever pleasant dreams he and bis colleague hare indulged iu must have had a rude awakening. Partlcu-" larly must this bare been -the case .irken the only Issues the iii his Minister placed stress on and ex- emplified in their tour were the tariff Issues, and when It is considered that these formed the ground on which the tide of election battle In the Ontario constituency flowed. In Yale, with 'the. Tiews held by the opposing candidates 'to. favor of free fruit, there was not' that pronounced Injection of the lanff .policy which featured the. East Elgin "election. In the review qt the Ontario (here is also this outstanding feature, that In the town of AylnYer; With Us factories, the Liberal, with his low tariff policy, obtained a "majority. Tote. The first harvest of the Prime Minister's toiir'Au'st noW, have been (lisappointing one to him. i -Whatever satisfaction 'the1 tour of "Messrs. Melshen and Calder might tare brought them at the time of its close canno} be shared by a very large "Birniber of his. hear era. It is true'there mnch enlightenment >in the "way of a protective policy to .those who Were protectionist in sentiment -with the speakers, and were only too glad' !to have their'faith solidifled.' But in' the, utterances m the tour there was af rreit void As fa cemed today it remains id "ignorance of policies with which 'it'if terested. I ment ot government policy' in regard 1 to the .burning question of the natural s resources, nothing as to increased rail- ..Tray rates, with the hand ling or them by the Hallway Commission; a'rjd' what regard the Government held, the! I railway rate problem as It affected the "West, There warnotbing of the poli- 1 cles In which' the nation' stood tlon to its newly acknowledged status Ot nationhood. These omissions were rioted at the time, and, with the result i of East Elgin in with' nothing said which will be done In regard to essentials, and the question ol the tariff very much overdone, the pil- Y grimage comes to be more than ever Clewed as a barren .one.- aad strategic position ot Ireland in regard to Great Britain. Those who urge a rapubllc- for Ireland have no tease of .what that Eea power which las made our Knjpirc what it is, and which alone will preserve .that Em- pire, means. It cannot for a moment bo imagined that Great Britain should suffer the presence of an Independent Ireland which would be ail ever pres- ent menace to the safety of the realm acd of the Empire, In being able to be used at any time as a hostile enemy submarine .base. The records of and present Irish history give cause 'or It cannot be expected that the whole Kit pi r a should stand to-be imperilled by to what Is comparatively an insignificant number gf Sinn Keiners, Britain is only too anxious to grant justice to Ireland, bui not at the risk of irljus- ice to.'Itself .and to the rest ot the Empire of'which it is the central point. not placed ,where-it is :he demands made would admit ol another In'the way they are viewed.- As the late Lord Salis- bury was'wobt to say, it Ireland could inly be and moored au appre- ciable distance from Great Britain she could have anything she wanted. It ft .indication needed thai polmcal opinion Is in' process of disintegration and that out of the two parent .'roots there Is growing a num- of shoots, each determined to make in Its own way, It is pronounced In the nominations-for the British Columbia elections.- There is among 'the candidates in the .coast province a ib'ewllderment of political "confusion made more confounded.
