Held in London, 1887. Canada was represented by
Sir Alexander Campbell and Sandford Fleming. Among the questions
discussed were those of inter-Imperial defence and trade, the Pacific
cable, etc. Another conference was held in Ottawa in 1894 (see
Colonial Conference, 1894); and another in London in June, 1896, Canada
being represented by Sir Mackenzie Bowell and Sandford Fleming. At an
adjourned meeting in October, 1896, Sir Donald Smith and Hon. A.G. Jones
represented the Dominion, Mr. Fleming being present in an advisory
capacity. On the occasion of Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee, 1897,
another conference was held in London, Joseph Chamberlain presiding, and
the self-governing colonies being represented by their premiers. Again,
in 1902, the colonial premiers met in London, under the presidency of
Joseph Chamberlain. The London Conference of 1907, presided over by Lord
Elgin, discussed various Imperial questions, but was chiefly memorable
because of the decision to hold similar meetings every four years, and
to provide a permanent bureau at London devoted specifically to the
interests of the Empire.
