Mr. Sexton, who so haudsomely defeated the Unionist candidate in West Belfast, deseives success. His speeches to the Belfast men were very effective. la one of them, alluding to hi-j opponent, he said : '• He boasted at his election of being a local man. Gentlemen, there is such a thing as being too local (laughter), and I say that a representative of Belfast in the Imperial Parliament is just a trifle too local when you find him in North street when he ought to be in the Housj of Commons." Whereat, we are not surprised to learn, there were great cneers and laughter. Mr. Sexton assuredly served the interests of Belfast in the last Parliament much more faithfully aud effectively thau its so-called representatives. The Saxon element is still supreme in Englami. Hodg^ wears his collar of bra^s. to indicate whose slave he is, with all the stupid pride of Gaah. For Cedric the Sixon, wad Hartmgton, or S il'sbury. It is incompr hcnsible how a people so dvi, an 1 even brutal, as the majority of the Saxon English couli have kept their grip so long upon the throats of the bright and doft-hearted Celts. It can only be explained in one way The Saxon English have always stood together as a unit against all outsiders, while the Celts of both Ireland and Scotland never presented an entirely united front to the Saxon invaders. Thus it has come to pass that the slowest, dullest, most selfish and most arrogant element of the population of the British empire dominates all the other elements. Hodge is the master of Sandy, of Patrick (under protest) and of David, and yet, man for man, on any li«ld or in any forum, the Scotchman, the Irishman or the Welshman is more than a match for his slow-minded and thick- hided bosß.— Citizen, Chicago.
