Description Rose-Belford's Canadian Monthly and National Review, Vol. 5 de Unknown Author:

Excerpt from Rose-Belford's Canadian Monthly and National Review, Vol. 5 The people of Canada are being instructed and perhaps enlightened by a series of letters from a gentleman in the United States, Mr. Wharton Barker, of Philadelphia, addressed to certain men of prominence here and in his own country, who do not appear, however, to honour them with much attention. The object of these letters, we may venture to say, would seem to be the wish to instil into the minds of the Canadian people a feeling of dissatisfaction with existing institutions, and thus to induce them to 'look to Washington' for a happy escape from the ills they are supposed to be suffering from. The writer of the letters is variously described as 'one of the Executive of the International League of the United States, ' and as 'Secretary to the Industrial League' in that country, and the latter appellation may remove from our minds the apprehension that it is a Nihilist or Socialist who ventures to become the prophet of this new school of economy. What the International League may be, or why Mr. Wharton Barker should be our guide, counseller and friend, we are left to imagine- perhaps it is not necessary we should be informed. These letters have, however, served our purpose, to draw attention to an important question for Canada, since several of our prominent journals have published and commented upon the question of which they treat, though they are given to the world evidently not by their recipients, but by Mr. Barker himself. The propositions these letters deal with are mainly three: 1. That our commercial relations with the United States are of an unsatisfactory character- 2. That this state of affairs cannot be permanently bettered by a Reciprocity Treaty liable to constant variation upon changes of government- 3. That Canada belongs to the American 'system, ' and that she should not be isolated commercially from the continent to which she belongs. It is gratuitously asserted, moreover, that the Dominion of Canada is purely artificial union effected for selfish purposes by England, and independently of the desire of the people of Canada themselves.
