Senator Hlgglns of Delaware Is an earnest
advocate of the _ . annexation of Canada to the

ago expressed the opinion on the lloor of th
senate that within a decade a portion of Can
ado , would become a part of the United States
and that annexation being once begun woul
not stop until thin country hurl absorbed th
whole ot the Dominion.
liut It is to be remarked that those wh
hold this view have not recently been geitln
any encouragement from our northern nelgli
brs. . So far as appears there has been n
growth among them for some time of th
annexation sentiment The agitation fc

entirely ceased or If kept up at all It I
not In n public waj. The agricultural pn
ducers were the source of this sentimen

they were citizens of the United States the
began to lose interest In annexation. Whr
they wanted was not citizenship in the r ;
public , not the protection of the America
IIg , but the American market for the
products , and this having been given thci
they are content to remain , at least for tli
