The Australian Navy
Experience of Sister Dominion  in Beginning  Her
Navy—A Lesson for Canada
Australia's   experience  in   tho or-|
ganizatioii ol u naval force furnishes,
a useful object, lesson to Canadians.
Australia Is nt work, It. must be re-,
mombcrcd, upon a policy „[ permanent naval development, and It Is he-1
ing done on a scale and  under coll-1
ditions little understood In Oanadn,
least of ull understood by those who
liavo   ranged   themselves   In opposition to ihe Borden policy of Immediate   tomnory aid to the Rrnplre ami
who   back   tbelr opposition with the
general   statement   that   "Australia
is building her own nnvy."
in 1901 Australia agreed to set up
ii Fleet Unit of her own. it wus to
comprise a battle-cruiser, three light
cruisers, six destroyers tint! throe
submarines, It was to cost, at the
prices tbeu prevailing. ¥3,700,000,
nnd it wnuiii need about 2.T.0O officers
and men. The Admiralty told the
Conference that "Simply to man
such a squadron, omitting auxiliary requirements and any margin
for reliefs, siekneis, etc... the minimum numbers required would be
about 2,,,1)0 ofllcers nnd men."
That was in 190'J; the vessels designed today for the most part arc
larger und require mnre men. The
Drendnniight of 1913 wlll need about
1,000 mon, as against 780 for the
battle 'Cruisers ordered by Australia
and New /.ealnnil in 1909 und thc de-
troyers of today need 100 men in
stend of lit,; sn that the personal ol
a lleet unit of thoroughly modern
ships probably would not full very-
far short of 3,000.
The Australians ordered all thc
vessels of their fleet unit In 1909 und
1910. Most of them were built in
Great liritiun, hut thev undertook to
build one of tbe light cruisers, the
Brisbane, in Australia. Vory slow-
progress wns mnde with this ship,
alike in beginning her nnd In roin-
•retine her; she hns not been finished yet.
Later the Australians decided to
obtain a comprehensive report upon
tbe whole tiavul uitllution us It ilt-
fected the commonwealth, and theil
government requested Admiral Sir
Reginald Henderson, an officer with
experience in administration to prepare a scheme for it. He visited tlic
country and drew up a remarkable
plan, exceedingly ambitious and very
carefully worked out. The Australian Government promptly accepted
the plan.
Sir Reginald Henderson proposed
that tbe Australian Government
should     embark    0n   a   programme
which would lust lor 22 years-that'By 19,13 it

A set of auxiliary vessels comprising three depot ships' for the destroyer flotillas and one repair ship.
Or !i2 ships, lu all. Admiral Hen
ilerson calculated that this force
when completed would require nearly
15,000 officers and men. It was to
cost .C88,<.00,(lrtQ or 1428,000,000,
ll wns Admiral Henderson's plan
that tho full size of the fleet Bhould
he reached uy degrees. He proposed
to divide the totnl period of 22 year
in;o four eras, the flrat of seven
yenrs, that in. from 1911 to 1918.
and the others dt live years each.
The second era was to end in 1923,
Lln: third in 1928 and the fourth in
1983. Thc Ilrst era he recommended
should be mainly devoted to preparation, to the ini ihi iu (r of barracks
the establtshmene of schools, thc
opening dt naval stations, the im-
piovomcnt of harbours, etc. Once the
lleet unit was obtained he suggested
the oniy additional ships procured
should ne six doritroycrH, three submarines and a depot ship.
Thus at the end of 1918 the fleet
should comprise one battle cruiser;
the Australia;" three light cruisers,
thc "Sydney," "Melbourne" and
''Brisbane;'1 two divisions of destroyers, ench of six ships, with one
de] ot Bhip; ami two divisions of
submarines, e--ch of three BhlpB, The
personnel needed would be 4-184. Of
this 2910 was to come from Oreat
Br itl an und 1471 from Australia,
During each nf the three succeed-
iug mis, Sir Reginald Henderson advised the building of two or three
battle-cruisers and two or three
light cruisers. By 1923, the fleet was
to have three hattle-crnisers, 18 destroyers (three divisions) and 12 submarines. It would need 8244 officers
and men. Of the new men procured,
708 should come from England and
3152 be procured locally. By 1928
the fleet would comprise six battle-
cm sera, eight light cruisers, and the
same number of torpedo crafts.
This   forte   would    need 12.8011 men.

You Can Depend On
Your Neighbors
To whom do you appeal for
help in time of trouble or sick
ness;' Ou Whom would you depend if nrond misfortune laid
Its heavy hand on you? Your
neighbors?    Kxactly.
Man is a gregarious animal,
and he naturally cares for relatives, friends and acquaintance.*, rather than strangers. Social aflnirs depend entirely on
acquaintanceship, and business
affairs are controlled to a larg0
extent by the same element. It
would bo better it business and
friendship were itill more close
ly linked.
If you would depena on your
neighbors in time o' adversity
why not depend on them in
prosperity? Isn't the man
whose band vou would like to
grasp, the man to whom you
ought to hand the dollar that
you haVo to spend' Why send it
away to a mail order house
which would he interested in fl
d-ath in yOllj family merely because it offered a iiossible
ilinnce to sell you a tombstone
or a crepe band for your hnt?
Yoi, know your neighbors are
reliable, that they can be de
|.ended on, that they would
come to your aid with sympathy or material help should
t e occasion arise. 'I h n why
not show tint you appreciate
their good qualities by loing
business with them regularly

great many in the brush and roots

I intended salting the ones 1 kept
and the way they were biting lt
would be an easy matter, I saw, to
obtain all that eould he possibly attended to properly.
Quitting about four o'clock I made
for camp, ate lunch nnd then pro-
teeded immediately to tin. caro of
the catch.
I cut each fish down the back nud
sprinkled it lightly with ma salt,
next placing the ln-.li closely in a
box brought for the purpose, This
1 placed where nothing cottld resch
it; then made ready for more flt-ihinu
on the morrow
The following day about mum, the
biting bogan to slacken Up, and by
evening it had almosl ceased, I considered the amount already caught
c-uMii'lcnt so was just nt well pleased
to desist,
Next morning I went out of curiosity to s.'e them spawn. There were
literally thousands of them darting
about o.e:' Ihu sanity bottom. Thc
females, easily discernahle by their
lighter color, wero depositing the
eg^n with ii peculiar side-Hip, cover-
in* them with nu almost Himultnn-
eoiis imd ion nf the tntl. The mules
were continually nosing about among
kick    out
capped   wavelots,    The trees around
the old camp swayed and sighed. An I
old   dry   stub leaning against n big
iir, screech, screeched,
Squirrels and birds were hushed,
tne bosses pawed and stamped about
Fhowing  Bigns  of  restlessness.
FoaHng the wind   might   fell   new,
tiers   across   the trail, 1 deeded to
brea'v   camp   and   depart.     Did you
ever nutice how the breaking up old
camp   makes   one teel?   Particularly

Not   so   very   loug ago about the

consolidate these Into large mill,
wilh a capacity of several hundred
thousand feet of lumber per dav, the
daily waste in sawdust is seen to be
enormous and much experimenting is
be'ng done to discover new methods
Of utilizing it.
Perhaps the most promising vm
ture in sawdust utilization in thin
"■•iintry is tbe manufacture o( ethyl
I alcohol. The sawdust, is
..1th sulphuric acid under
Conditions, resulting iu tb-t
of sugar, which is thru
to produce alcohol. Bev-
....1 plants have been erected to produce alcohol from Wood in this man
ner, and, though there are some difficulties still to be overcome, the ultimate success of the process on n
Commercial basis is assured.

Ihen   suddenly BWOOp down with ra- briquets of.the desired size, the con-
id undulating movement, and scoopllatned
it up.    Sometimes two or more male ilrm
would spy the same deposit, then
race for it, riling the swift wnter by
their impact.
I watched them until tired of such
tame sport, thin ascending the left
bank proceeded to camp bv the Old
Prospector's trail that came up from
the we-U fork of the Kettle lliver.
This tr,.il converged With others

the Dominion government on the 40
mtlie wide strip of federal land, extending from the coast to the great
divide, the axis of which is the Canadian Pacific railway, aud which Is
consequently called the railway belt.
As the railroad follows the valleys
of the Fraser rivers for » long distance there are some rich bottom
lands included In this strip which are
of pretent or potential value for
agriculture. Unfortunately a considerable port.on of such lands are located in tlte dry holt and depend on
irrigation for their development, the
rainfall not being sufficient to produce agricultural crops.
This dry belt between the Const
and SelKirk mountain ranges, and
with the exception nf the river volleys consists of a broken plateau or
mountainous region with ftn elevation of from 2,000 ft. to 6,000. It is
here thnt. tho 13 Dominion reserves
now existing in British Columbia are
located, and although original!-.
small iu size, becnusc of the limited
area then examined, subseiiiunt for
est surveys have justified the t n'ni'gr
ment of these reserves to their pres
ent size, for n.»t only is the rainfall
not sutiicieiit for agriculture, being
less Ihiin 12 in. a year, but also the
elevation mako*? the region very siis
COptlhle to VroBl which occurs every
month in the year. Moreover, th .
broken nature nf the ground, leaving
