Owing to the fact that Slfton's admirable address came.later in the evening, it is impossible to give his remarks verbatim. He be said, that lie was not wholly on' un- familiar ground, as he had often, been in the city. When his parents '.re- moved to the Northwest provinces'of Canada, the journey was by way St. Paul. This city had inhabitants at. that time.

The Canadian House of Commons carries out the will 'of the people who elected them, and the up- per branch of the legislature and the Dominion government never think of not agreeing with the Commons. Mr. Sifton admitted that in material progress Cnnadn is a. long way behind United States. He felt no dis couragemcnt on that score, howevoi He ihe influence which bad brought about those conditions, ter'the War of'the Rebellion, the Un- ited States possessed every advan- tage of free hind arid golden oppor- tunity to immigrants from oth- er countries. It was a land of prom- ise, and Canada contributed its share toward filling up the States. In Massachusetts. Mr. Sifton stated, he had found Canadians, in Chicago, and thousands in all tho oilier States. The contribution of Ca- nada of tho flower of her young men to the United States had worked ng- inst the progress of Canada, as it. contributed to the unbuilding of this country.
