The -western Canadian provinces
are reported excited over the publi
cation of Atkinson's proposed annexa
tion of eastern Canada by purchase.
With very few exceptions the scheme
is universally applauded. The Globe,
the most influential paper in the
province, which heretofore has been
very conservative, openly commends
the idea. It says editerially: '3Et
would bo better for the American and
Canadian people, and it would not be
to the disadvantage of Great Britain,
if all the English-speaking people on
the continent were united in one great
nation. The great objection to annex
ation is purely a sentimental one.
There is a feeling that England might
foel hurt by any expression of desire
on our part to exchange her flag for
another; but an expression from her
that she had no objection would add
very largly to the number of people
in the maritime provinces who now
believo that annexation is their ulti
mate destiny. If the provinces in
themselves decide to enter the Ameri
can Union and become self-governing
Btates, Ontario and Quebec would
have to follow. That these provinces
might act of themselves is quite with
in the bounds of possibility, and if
they did act of themselves and for
themselves, Canada and Great Britain
could not stop them any more than
they can stop our people from re
moving into the United States."
Senator DoiiPn intends to intro
duce an amendment to the constitu
tion of the United States at the com
ing session of congress relativo to
general legislation in regard to mar
riage and divorce. His amendment
will havo a bearing on the admission
of Utah as a stale. Ho says, however,
he would be opposed to the admission
of Utah even if his amendment
were adopted. Following is the text
of his amendment: "Congross shall
havo power to legisale upon the sub
ject of marriage and divorce, general
laws applicable alike to all states
and territories, and neither bigamy
nor polygamy shall exist or be per
mitted within tho United States or
any place subject to their jurisdic
tion. Senator Dolph has made an
exhaustive study of plans for the coast
defense of tho country. Ho has pro
pared a bill to provide for carrying
out the plans of tho commission that
made a report on the subject some
time ago. The cost of the work will
be $126,000,000. The harbors on the
Pacific coast that would be improved
under tho bill are San Francisco, the
mouth of the Columbia, San Diego
and the northern coast of Washington
territory. The bill appropriates $27,
000,000 for the defense of San Fran
cisco harbor. The defense would con
sist of turrets, barbette batteries, sub
marine mines, torpedo boats, thirty
floating batteries and mortar batteries.
The bill appropriates $2,519,000 for
the defense of tho month of the Co
lumbia, to consist of barbette batter
ies, submarine mines and fifteen tor
pedo boats. The bill gives San Die
go harbor $504,000 for the same pur
pose. The cost of improving New
York harbor, according to the bill,
would be $23,940,500. According to
the bill the appropriation shall be
available as follews: For the iiceal
year ending Juno 30, 18S9, $21,500.
000; for each fiscal year thereafter,
for a period of eleven years, $900,000,
and for tho fiscal yenr ending June
30, 1900 $5,670,800.

GOIKG TO THE PACIFIC.
Fishermen from the Atlantic whoAre
Uoioz into the Behrin? Sea.
Tho Press of Portland, Maine says
editerially: The departure of a few
Canadian and American fishermen to
participate in the seal fisheries of
Behring sea havo already been an
nounced. So far Capt Sol. Jacob's
two schooners are the only Uuitod
States vessels that have gone, and it
was the opinion of good jndges a few
weeks ago that tho season was petting
too late for other United States ves
sels to follow. But the Canadians are
very aotive in pushing their way to
the Pacific, and neither the season,
nor the pmspect of capture by Unit
ed States revenue cutters deter them.
Already this year nine vessels in the
maritime provinces have bem pur
chased to engage in the seal fisheries.
Two of them are Canad'an cruisers.
This is the list: The schooners Path
finder, Sapphire, Viva, L. Ifoulette,
Maggie Mac, Annie C. Moore, A i an
ah, Ariel, ana Triumph.
The men who are purchasing these
vessels are telling golden stories of
the riches to be gleaned in the west.
'The Pacific seal fisheries," they say,
"are the richest that an enterprising
man can engage in. Last year one
captain caught 4500 seals. They are
worth from S7.50 to to S10 each. -The
largest catch in ono day was 375.
During the past 4 years this captain
has caught 12,000 seals, yielding
S85,000." "Every shot or spear thrust
is worth eight dollars to ten dollars,"
is another enticing expression that
the adventurers from tho west drop
into the ears of the Nova Scotian?
and islanders of Cape Breton. The
Nova Scotia papers aro spreading
these reports, with an effect that can
readily be imagined. This rnsh to
the Alaskan seals will have two re
sults at least It will make tho set
tlement of the fisheries difficulty in
the northwest more imperative than
ever; and it forebodes the destruction
of the seals.
