Canada and the country south of Canada as new nations, measured either by the centurial existence of our old British Empire, or by the length of existence of an Empire Republic like China. The speaker's belief that the great Imperial Republic of Canada and the great Republic south of the lakes are to endure. Reasons for that belief, with a brief discussion of each: the comparative equality in the distribution of wealth; the mobility or fluidity of public judgment and sentiment; the high ideal of administrative justice; the principle or the sentiment of the glory of the imperfect. Some concluding remarks about the League of Nations. The need for the perpetuation of the league between the different branches of the English-speaking race.
