A review of the wealth and resources of our country. Some dollar figures in terms of industry and production. The beauty of our scenery from coast to coast. Indications of our prosperity. Our dangers: real, and arising from a lack of cohesiveness coming from the different elements of which our nationality is composed. The danger that these foreign elements may in time overwhelm the Canadian portion and vastly surpass them in numbers as well as the immigrants from the Motherland who are coming to settle in Canada. The number of languages spoken in the Northwest of Canada. Ways in which our difficulties in this regard differ from those of the United States. The issue of manhood suffrage. The need for honest, patriotic men to represent us and to administer our country's affairs. Ways in which the representation of our country is really and truly a complete and perfect representation, with anecdotal illustration. The loyalty of the people of Canada towards things British and the British throne. The unifying influence of Imperialism. Congratulations to the Empire Club and its members on the ideals they have placed before them, and the work they are striving to do.
