The National Review, Vol. 27 : March to August, 1896 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The National Review, Vol. 27: March to August, 1896 The hearts of the children have gone out to the great lone isolated mother, and we to-day do but our duty when we sternly pledge ourselves to substantial samifiees in he1 behalf. Responding to the call of her people, 'she supplemented hei no1mal ﬂeet with a magnificent fiyin cr squadion, which showed to the world that if in numbeis she was not a fist class Continental Power, she was at least now, as in days of yore, mistress Of the seas. As part of Great Britain, Canada, more than any other part, is Open to attack. With thousands of miles of con tinuous frontier, and divided only by an invisible line from the United States, with many exciting international questions calculated to cause bitterness and ataife, it becomes doubly our duty so to conduct ourselves that we should lessen, and not increase, Great Britain's difficulties. Recent troubles have accentuated our determination to remain part and parcel of the Empire. The splendid, dream of Imperial federation has never yet presented itself in such practical form to the Colonies as to command their adherence but its underlying sentiments evoke hearty sympathy from many who could not openly support a scheme. \ve may have no logical scheme ready, but, in our own blundering way, I doubt not that we shall yet achieve the desired result, and the national pledge which we are asked this day to record is one step in that direction.'
