Excerpt from The Making of the Australian Commonwealth 1889-1900: A Stage in the Growth of the Empire

This is not a histoz're documentée of the movement towards Australian Federation, - (that should be the work of an Australian University), - nor another study of the constitution, nor a memoir; but the record by an eye-witness of the making of the Common wealth during the critical period from 1889 to 1900, which aims at giving to a later generation a more Vivid picture of that time, and making intelligible the policy and passions of the contending parties, the personalities of the rival leaders, and the ebb and flow of popular sentiment which was the decisive factor in the great event. It is a story, which is worth the telling, of a time when high ideals inspired men to effort, and may repeat itself sooner than we think in a struggle for the closer Union of the British peoples. If the names of the actors be unfamiliar to English readers, let it be remembered that Galt, George Brown, Tupper, and John A. Macdonald were little known in England twelve years after the forma tion of the Dominion of Canada; and, that all, who do work for the Empire, have a place in its history, whether they inhabit London, Ottawa, or Sydney.
