XTbe Critmne S.\iurdv. MBLY 2. 1914 KRRATUM. r "The Head and the Foot" the Tribune of 18th April, lerring to the erection of the itue of Columbus, for 1831 id 22nd June 1832. J GREAT IRISH UNIONIST The Right Hon. Thomas gfiCUir, M. A. D. Lit. passed "-fay recently, to the great grief Ulster Unionist, and pious Protestants of Ulster, especially the Presbyterian Church, which lie adorned as an Elder for iany years. The writer of this article is a Presbyterian, nor a Unonist, but he feels that tins is a ping opportunity to call atntion to the fact that the opsitionto Home Rule! is] not I ^"y means the sole offspring Orange bigotry. Had this ien the case, we do not doubt that Home Rule would have been an accomplished fact beTore now. It is the opposition [Of high principled Christian [men as Mr. Sinclair that has made many British electors I hesitate for years to cast a vote for Home Rule. Such men as Mr. Sinclan firmly hold that Jome Rule would lead to the Jirtailment of religious liberty J" d one cannot but assume that the I nbune" has dealt tender. Iy with such convictions, out of profound respect for the men who bold them. Some communications which Mr. Sinclair has made to the press, m fact all that have met the writer's eye, have been digof [inguished by refinement language, vigour of expression, %  nd unfaltering firmness. He "as a born leader, and evei proved himself a powerful advocate of the Unionist cause, and a formidable assailant of I 'oni*-' Rule. He was a life-long Liberal, but when Gladstone took up Home Rule he subordinated everything to the policy of killing Gladstone's scheme. Accordingly he led Liberal Unionists into alliance with Ulster Tories. However painful such an alliance must have bean to him, he had no choice, holding such principles as he did. but to unite with Tories in opposition to the granting of a parliament j in Dublin. 1 The policy, inevitable, as it was to men who felt as did Mr. Sinclair, has had in the end unfortunate consequences for Unionists. Mr. Balfour's Education Acts were a direct result of the triumph of the Unionist forces: Now Liberal Unionists in England came largely from the ranks of non-conformity, and non conformists, rightly or wrongly, hated these Acts. It is evident from letters written by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain and Lord James of Hereford to the late Duke of Devonshire, and published in the biography of the Duke, that thousands of Liberal Unionists turned Lad-. to Liberalism on that question, and came to the conclusion hat to defeat Tory policy in general was far more important than to defeat Home Rule; Oh, the irony of it!—On the one hand Home Rule has brought together English Nonconformists and Irish Catholics, and, on the other hand, resistance to Home Rule has brought together English Roman Catholics who are mainly Tory, and Irish Protestant Liberals like Mr. Sinclair But, when all is said and done, men like Mr. Sinclair can ill be Spared from public life. Such men place high ideals before others and inspire coming generations to seek their attain* meat. J The effect of the Panama Canal on Western Canada formed the topic of a lecture by Mr. !•'. B. Vrooman at the Co-1 lonial Institute in London on j April 7th. He claims that two-thirds of the future products of Canada will have an outlet at the Western Sea. In that case, as! he truly says, Canada would j face not the Atlantic but the Pacific Ocean. He states that grain rates from Vancouver to Liverpool via Panama will be less than half the rate from Albertan points to'VancOuver. If the Canal had j been available in [912 the farmers of Alberta alone (not to speak of the miner and the manufacturer) would have saved £"4,000,000 on the crop of that year through the cheapen-: ing of freight rates. Here is another striking calculation made by the lecturer;. "It w.is easy to sea not Far hence for the farmers of Alberta and Saskatchewan a free gift from the Canal of something in the neighbourhood of £",0,000,00 oa year in freight ratessaved." On Wednesdaj the owner of the "Frances E ', expecting that the boat would not arrive in port until after dark, on account of adverse winds, and that the medical officer might refuse to examine the passengers until next morning, on the ground that there was not sufficient light furnished on the boat,approached the Electrical Board with proposition that he might lie allow ed to use Electricity from one of the fixture-, on R iwson Square by attaching a lamp with a I ng flexible wire to a plug. The Board deali with the matter promptly and a 1 attachment plug has been installed which will be available for use by any boat arriving after dark and wish ing to disembark passengers before daylight.

GREAT IRISH UNIONIST
The Right Hon. Thomas
gfiCUir, M. A. D. Lit. passed
"-fay recently, to the great grief
Ulster Unionist, and pious
Protestants of Ulster, especially
the Presbyterian Church, which
lie adorned as an Elder for
iany years.
The writer of this article is
a Presbyterian, nor a Un-
onist, but he feels that tins is a
ping opportunity to call at-
ntion to the fact that the op-
sitionto Home Rule! is] not
I ^"y means the sole offspring
Orange bigotry. Had this
ien the case, we do not doubt
that Home Rule would have
been an accomplished fact be-
Tore now. It is the opposition
[Of high principled Christian
[men as Mr. Sinclair that has
made many British electors
I hesitate for years to cast a vote
for Home Rule. Such men as
Mr. Sinclan firmly hold that
Jome Rule would lead to the
Jirtailment of religious liberty
J"d one cannot but assume that
the I nbune" has dealt tender.
Iy with such convictions, out of
profound respect for the men
who bold them.
Some communications which
Mr. Sinclair has made to the
press, m fact all that have met
the writer's eye, have been dig-
of
[inguished by refinement
language, vigour of expression,
nd unfaltering firmness. He
"as a born leader, and evei
proved himself a powerful ad-
vocate of the Unionist cause,
and a formidable assailant of
I 'oni*-' Rule.
He was a life-long Liberal,
but when Gladstone took up
Home Rule he subordinated
everything to the policy of kill-
ing Gladstone's scheme. Ac-
cordingly he led Liberal Union-
ists into alliance with Ulster
Tories. However painful such
an alliance must have bean to
him, he had no choice, holding
such principles as he did. but to
unite with Tories in opposition
to the granting of a parliament j
in Dublin. 1
The policy, inevitable, as it
was to men who felt as did Mr.
Sinclair, has had in the end un-
fortunate consequences for
Unionists. Mr. Balfour's Educa-
tion Acts were a direct result of
the triumph of the Unionist
forces: Now Liberal Unionists
in England came largely from
the ranks of non-conformity,
and non conformists, rightly or
wrongly, hated these Acts. It
is evident from letters written
by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain and
Lord James of Hereford to the
late Duke of Devonshire, and
published in the biography of
the Duke, that thousands of
Liberal Unionists turned Lad-.
to Liberalism on that question,
and came to the conclusion hat
to defeat Tory policy in general
was far more important than to
defeat Home Rule; Oh, the
irony of it!On the one hand
Home Rule has brought to-
gether English Nonconformists
and Irish Catholics, and, on the
other hand, resistance to Home
Rule has brought together Eng-
lish Roman Catholics who are
mainly Tory, and Irish Protes-
tant Liberals like Mr. Sinclair !
But, when all is said and
done, men like Mr. Sinclair can
ill be Spared from public life.
Such men place high ideals be-
fore others and inspire coming
generations to seek their attain*
meat.

The effect of the Panama
Canal on Western Canada
formed the topic of a lecture by
Mr. !'. B. Vrooman at the Co-1
lonial Institute in London on j
April 7th.
He claims that two-thirds of
the future products of Canada
will have an outlet at the
Western Sea. In that case, as!
he truly says, Canada would j
face not the Atlantic but the
Pacific Ocean.
He states that grain rates
from Vancouver to Liverpool via
Panama will be less than half
the rate from Albertan points
to'VancOuver. If the Canal had j
been available in [912 the far-
mers of Alberta alone (not to
speak of the miner and the
manufacturer) would have sav-
ed "4,000,000 on the crop of
that year through the cheapen-:
ing of freight rates.
Here is another striking cal-
culation made by the lecturer;.
"It w.is easy to sea not Far hence
for the farmers of Alberta and
Saskatchewan a free gift from
the Canal of something in the
neighbourhood of ",0,000,00 oa
year in freight ratessaved."
On Wednesdaj the owner of
the "Frances E ', expecting that
the boat would not arrive in port
until after dark, on account of
adverse winds, and that the me-
dical officer might refuse to ex-
amine the passengers until next
morning, on the ground that
there was not sufficient light
furnished on the boat,approach-
ed the Electrical Board with pro-
position that he might lie allow
ed to use Electricity from one of
the fixture-, on R iwson Square
by attaching a lamp with a I ng
flexible wire to a plug. The
Board deali with the matter
promptly and a 1 attachment
plug has been installed which
will be available for use by any
boat arriving after dark and wish

fore daylight.

Betty, the more attractive of the
two, having won the heart of
Dob, a youthful fisherman,
