UaJiaiU And Canadians.
th Provincial Governments Briefly
Described and Named.
A newspaper correspondent relates
that, by the act of confederation—lß67 —
one Parliament, consisting of the Queen,
an upper house, styled the Senate, and
the House of Commons, was given to
Canada. The executive power of nnd
over Canada was continued and is vested
in the Queen. A council, known as the
Queen’s Privy Council for Caanda, to
aid and advise in the government of the
country, was established, and an officer,
styled the Governor-General of Canada,
who carries on the Government in the
Queen’s name and in her behalf, provid
ed for. The power of the Crown beiug
limited by its constitutional advisers,
the form of government as far as it goes
in that direction is a limited monarchy.
The functions of the Governor-General,
though representing royalty, are more
restricted than those appertaining to
The House of Commons is this impor
tant part of Parliament. The members
of the Privy Council, if not mainly of
their number, report in the House the
manner of conducting the Government.
The supplies for carrying on all Govern
ment originate with them. They—the
Commons—are in fact the people, the
supreme ruling power.
The task of Government is carried on
by the Ministry or Government or Ad
ministration, so long as they can com
mand a majority of the two houses of
Parlament, and are the choice of the
Like the States of the American Union
the provinces of the Dominion are uni
ted for some purposes and separated
for others. There is a union for matters
of general, and one might say national,
interest; there is a separation for mat
ters of local or internal interest.
The Conservatives and the Liberals are
the two great political parties. The
leader of the former Sir John Maodon
ald, is Premier of the Dominion. The
Cabinet possesses some of the ablest men
in Canada. Each Minister is paid $7,-
000 a year as compensation. Sir John
Macdonald has the say in all matters.
His individuality, however, has found a
counterpart in Sir Charles Tupper, an
ex-member of the Government srvl at
present High Commissioner io r.ugiana.
Sir John has devoted his life to the ser
vice of his country. He entered politics
over 50 years ago. His great lieuten
ants are Sir Hector Langevin, French
Canadian, holding the portfolio of Pub
lic Works; Sir J. D. Thompson, Minister
of Justice; the Hon. George E. Foster,
Minister of Finance, and the Hon. Mac
kenzie Bonell, Minister of Customs. The
Hon. J. A Chapleau, Secretary of State,
is the greatest orator in the Cabinet.
He is a politician rather tbaD a states
man, but his friends claim that unfor
tunate intluenoes have kept him in the
The Cabinet aits daily during the ses
sion of Parliament, but during recess
meets three or four times weekly. It is
composed as follows:
Sir John A. Macdonald. Premier; the Hon.
George E. Foster Minister of Finance; the I
Hon. E. H. Dewdney, Minister of the Interior: j
Sir J D. Thompson! Minister of Justice; Sir
Hector Eangevin, Minister of Public Works;, j
| th Hen. joiin .GanHsran. Minister of Inland
j Revenue; the Hon. J. H. Pope, otmiswir at
! Railways; the Hon", John Carling, Mihister of
i Agriculture; the Hon. J. G. Haggart, Postmss
| ter-General; the Hon. C. H. Tupper, Minister
of Fisheries; the Hon. Mackenzie Bonell, Min
j ister of Customs; Sir Adolphe Caron, Minister
of Militia; the Hon J. A. Chaple&u, Secretary
i of State; the Hon. Frank Smith (without port
folio); the Hon. J. J. Abbott (without port
All orders in council passed by the
Cabinet do not become operative un
til approved of by the Governor-Gen
eral, who is at present Lord Stanley, son
of the late Earl Derby.
Canada is governed at home by politi
cians, who in turn have, in many in
stances, to submit to the decrees of
Downing street. The various provinces,
with the exception of Ontario, are gov
erned to death. They have local Legis
latures, with miniature Houses of Lords,
exotics not in keeping with the aspira
tions of our people. In Quebec the
legislative Councilors, Or Lords, are
appointed for life. They are supposed
to represent the “property" holders of
the province, and to act as a safety valve
on the radical tendencies of the Assem
bly. Iu Prinoe Edward Island the legis
lative council is more democratic, tie
cause it is elective. The islaud possesses
a population of 100,000. It returns six
members to the Federal Parliament, four
Senators appointed by the Central Gov
ernment, thirty members returned by
manhood suffrage to the local Assembly,
besides thirteen legislative Councilors
returned by the votes of the property
holders. Fifty-three legislators repre
sent 100,000 people.
The province of Ontario, by all odds
the most prosperous and progressive of
the Canadian provinces, has in the ad
ministration of its local affairs but one
i house, elected by the votes of the peo
ple. It furnishes a model to the world,
There are few States in llie American
| Union mote populous than Ontario and
none more prosperous. It is the banner
province of confederation.
The Federal Senate, established with
good intentions, is the butt of the press
of more than one party. It is non-elect
ive, and is everywhere regarded as the
dumping ground for played-out politi
cians. Senate reform has lieen a party
cry in Canada for years, but nothing
has been done.
Distinctively speaking, there are no
Canadians in Canada. The census gives
the number of English, Scotch, Irish
and French, but nowhere is mention
made of Canadian. There Is a large de
gree of selfishness about their politi
: cians, and every nationality or element
has its representative at the Federal
Council board. The-e is practically no
community or sentiment between the
various provinces. It is a common say
ing that you insult a native of the mari
time provinces by calling him a Can
adian. Down there political battles are
fought out on provincial lines, and an
effort is always made to drive the hard
est bargain with the Central Govern
ment at Ottawa.

The Rubber Hunters*
The Yularoes, or rubber hunters at
Costo Rica, writes a correspondent, are
the most irresponsible and ignorant of
creatures, whose first object, when out
on an expedition, is to secure as much
caoutchouc as possible, and next to dam
age the prospects of other Yularoes, re
gardless of the future. A thrifty tree
at its first outting, ought to yield not
less than fifty pounds of rubber, but
the hunters of to day find few so profit
able, unless they penetrate far into the
virgin forests, and are fortunate enough
to discover na entirely new district. In
the section- already worked most of the
trees have been tapped several times,
and many of them were spoiled at the
outset by having been cut too young be
cause Its greedy discoverer feared that
if the prize were left to attain perfec
tion another might secure it. Were the
matter regulated by judicious laws, so
that only mature trees might be tapped,
and those not to an extent to cause
death, the production of caoutclioud
would soon be a source of wealth to the
Among the inhabitants of Central
America the Yularoes form a distinct
class, by all odds the lowest in the coun
try, unless it may be the Caribs of Guate
mala, or the pearl divers of the western
coast. They are mostly halfbreeds or
negroes, for white men seldom engage
in it, though the business might be ex
tremely profitable. A Yularo can be dis
tinguished at a glance from natives of
other “professions,” as easily as a cow
boy in genteel society, • r a miller fresh
from his mill, not only by his general
air of dare-devil-don’t care-itiveness, but
by the thick coatin ■ of caoutchouc that
covers his clothing from head to foot.
This extra coating accumulates gradual
ly by contact with the rubber trees,
without intention on the part of the
wearer, and in time renders his gar
ments absolutely waterproof and almost
