The naval policy of premier Borden wnB announced In thc HoUBe
Commons Thursday. Mr. Borden, in
a cnrefully prepared speech, reviewed
the status of naval affairs of tbe
world and told of the burden thrown
on the Mother Couotry through thc
aggressive   naval policy ot (Iermany.
He snld: "Canada propose to add
three ol the most powerful battleships ailoat at a cost of 135.000,000
to the naval defense of the British
Empire. These vessels are to he
built in Great Hritlnn und will form
part of the British licet, but tbey
can he recalled to form part ol a
Canadian navy should such a step
be necessary."
Expressions of Gratitude
London, Nov. 22—An outburst of
British pride and gratitude greets
whatthe Morning Post calls '^he
simple hut inspiring announcement"
n the Klug's speech at Ottawa.
"Who," sayB tbe Post, "could fail
to be deeply touched by thc spectacle
of this young nation resolutely
shouldering Its responsibilities as a
partner of the empire and stepping
forth ragerlv to take part In safeguarding from attack the heritage of
the British race.   Contributions from
Canada and other partner states
must be regarded Blmply as reinforcements which are Intended to render
the task of uny possible enemy still
more formidable."
The Daily Telegraph says:
"Tho heart;- of tbe llrltlsh people
go out In unrestrained admiration
and deep gratitude to the Canad un
nation lor their generous promise
when Britain is confronted by an
emergency of unexampled gravity
owing to the rnpid expansion of foreign fleets. The motherland finds
that she will not have to face the
world in urnis alone. Spontaneous
oflers of help come from all quarters.
The ruling princes of the federated
Malay states spring forward wltb
the gift of n lirst-class cruiser. New
Zealand haa given u splend d liuttle-
shlp-crnisoi' to the metropollean tleet.
South Africa Is considering what
share she will take in Imperinl destiny. Australia is creutlng a smull
hut oflicicnt navy to relieve thc British Heel of the responsibility of policing her distant fleet. Egypt is
about to provide mobile defences for
her own littoral.
"Now Canada advances, stowing
her loyalty to one throne und one
Hag and the British conception ot
wider   life   among   her offspring—al
lied nations—and t'mir mission.
This unity carries witli it saie component puns that wilt assure the
peace of tbe world. We In tlio United Kingdom must bu prepnred to
meet the dawn of this fresb day with
a glnd welcome to tuese daughter
lnnds which huve a right to some
voice jn shaping an l-'licli.-h policy.
We shirk this fresh responsibility onlj at grave peril to tlmt Empire."
The Dally Graphic (Unionist) says
the emergence ot thc German navy
has completely chnnct-d the Dominions point ,.( view. They previously
considered tliey hnd done nil to be
expected of thom In contrlbutetng towards local defence.
The Morning Tout (Unionist) Is
certain that Hon. E. Louis Godeere's
victory shows that Pnemler llorden
has the support of the people la his
naval proposals.
The Pall Mall Gazette (Uutonist)
I suys the whole movement (or empire
[ defense and union will be ruined II
j the Canadian ships are absorbed into
■ the home guard and kept clamped to
; the North Sea and the Mediterran-
; ean. Canada and other dominions
j nre conscious of other clouds no big
j ger than a man's hnnd and will expect their own ships to defend their
own Interests.

One of the greatest pleasures of the
Yule-tide season is the giving of gifts.
There is always a certain amount of genuine
joy in remembering a friend or relative at
Christmas time.
The one ever present question that troubles us all is "What Shall I
Give?" You  don't  want  to  slight your relatives and then you
must remember a few friends. In short, how to spread the glad
Christmas joy to everyone seems to be the greatest  trouble  at this

Bmerfcan women, marrtnfl tn Englishmen, donned the
flowing trout-era and defied couvcttUon in lhal si tinge
full dress. Blie wits the ha rem dress prophetess thai day
to such beauties us Mrs, Waldorf Astor and Mra. Sam ict
Kewhouse, who were Nannie Langhornc and Ida String-
lay, of Virginia, and Mrs, Cecil Bingham, who waa the
lovely Alice Carr, of Kentucky.
Tha fact waa that Lady Lister-Kaye, tliat clover
Natica Yanaga, was one of the favorites of Queen Maty.
Thero waa something nbout her breezy brightness that
charmed the austere queen, even when she wus princess
ef Wales, Lady Lister-Kayo had been lier lios-tct-s repeatedly. Then, too, tho queen of England haa a sort
of motherly feeling for all her nobility, painfully as It
has heen expressed In her growing aversion to pretty
nearly all other social leaders In London. Sho thought,
as plenty of her subjects thought, that Lord Lister-Kaye
had done more tlian his chare for the empire.
It was ho who sunk looo.ooo '.r. the vain endeavor—
lsocau.se It was some few years before lis appointed time-
to establish English farmers as colonists In Canada,
England thought of him as a raro good sport. lie and
his wife were extensive travelers, too; and there wuh a
feeling that wherever Lord Lister-Kayo fared, he was
keen of eye for England's enterprises.
Best ot all, tn tho estimation of English society, he

yet It was strange—no ono could quiie a-vmmt for it-
thai King George showed no alacrity in continuing Mir
joim in nis court functions, so satisfactorily performed
in the glad old days of King George's cheerful parent.
And II wus curious, too, that tho Bocial activities of tha
delightful pair, after 1811s gayety, should seem to proceed
less under royal favor than before.
(.'anon Menson's terrible sermon shed tho flood of
light lhat explained why the royal favor had been so
hastily obsi ured.  wnn
The Power of thefiL
Pulpit in London, As
Shown by the Ostra
cism of the Lister
Kayes, Accused or
Interest in Rubber
Jmffaf M>t$(*r m Jhtfi {fm*rr<&
rTlHE power of the church, so often de-
m        dared to be weaning by reason of
"**•        modem man's indiference to his religion, remains still a vital factor in society.
It may not now incorporate the faith
that once moved mountains; that made and
unmade kings; that hurled England against
Asia in the epochal conflicts of the Crusades*
Perhaps that is because the need for such
overwhelming earnestness has passed; per-
hup because it is not realized.
But when a single sermon can arouse the
spirit of all society in a leading nation of the
western world, when the utterance of one
man, in a single pulpit, can make social exiles
of those who have bcen looked up to and flattered as leaders, decade after decade, it must
be premature to accuse religion of old age and
And society—heedless and haughty—
dare no longer swing on in its wonted, reckless way, carelessly confident that it is at least
ai law unto itself, with no power except its
own "public opinion" to eall it to account.
Even those of its sins that are committed
vicariously in distant continents have the
tribunal of religion's conscience to appeal to,
aud the sentence of the pulpit to endure.
This is the great and startling lesson
which has been brought home to Great Britain, its nobility and its people, by the sudden,
crushing ostracism which has befallen England's best-liked baronet and his wife, a
woman who has been famed as among the
loveliest and cleverest of the American
heiresses whose wealth helped to give English society the renewed prosperity it enjoyed.
IT WAS Stevenson, most friendly yet shrewd of
philosophers, who cited the instance of the boy who
throws a stone nt random and brings down somo
old bird sitting cannlly behind the hedge, confident
he Is safe from all harm.
The bird that was struck down this lime waa Sir
John Lister-Kayo, the brilliant baronet who, many
Z'eurs ago, married Natica Yznaga, of Louisiana and
New York, American heiress then, and afterward
among* tho most popular of English hostesses lu
But the stono that found him out was not idly
flung. It came ln tho form of a sermon delivered of
eet and solemn purpose by Canon Henson, from the
pulpit of Westminster Abbey; nnd v.-hen the distinguished preacher quit the pulpit, after tho fateful
application of Christianity's teachings to English
Christianity's practice, Lord Lister-Kayo was a broken
nan, his wife u heartbroken woman.
When England, mote than two years ago, during the
thrills attending the wild speculation In rubber which
had set her peopl* afire with greed, complained to the
United States of the horrible atrocities practiced by the
Peruvian-Amazon Rubber Company on the natives In
the far interior, no one dreamed that so dismaying a
Jlareback could ultimately come.
Whatever might be the knowledge possessed by thoss
In the secrets of the British government when 8lr Edward
Grey, of the foreign ofllce, asked Washington to use Us
power to unearth the crimes, the people at large ..ad only
the familiar British feeling that no such scandul could
smirch their escutcheon, held aloft In the pride of years
devoted to warring against human slavery.
Thero was a long lull, after denials and the brand
of recrimination which declared thnt thc natives wero
bloodthirsty, Ignorant savages, who were dangerous to
a',1 who invaded their territory, and shifted the blame
for Inhumanity lo tlic distant shoulders of Peru. Especially was the blame dumped on the shoulders of Peru.
But it was curiously remarkable that, with the appointment of a committee of investigation under Sir Roger
Casement, the whole ensanguined topic was allowed to
drop out of sight, and so mostly out of mind. Very
different was the scandal of the Amazon's headwaters,
in which some Englishmen might be concerned, from
that of the Congo Free State, in which Leopold of Belgium was pilloried as a royal vanvire.
England has always been the world's premier laundress for dirty linen; no other nation lias ever known so
well how to do its foulest washing at home. From the
lirst alarm of the revelations, when some few horrified
Colombians were making sworn depositions of the hideoui,
truth and the British Anti-Slavery Society waa spurring
Karl Orey to the action he took in notifying Washington
the team play In British ruling circles had been up to
the highest standard of home laundering.
Prominent in English society were Sir John and
Lady Lister-Kaye, honored for the husband's inherited
station and moro noted for the wife's wealth and social
Sir John Ih now .*•!) yenrs old, the third baronet of his
name, son of tho daughter of the earl of Cottenham. He

notable occasions, a distinguished man of affairs Is
Sir John, peculiarly secured In his wealth and his social
influence by his marriage, contracted some thirty years
ago, five years after the sister of his bride had become
Viscountess Mandevllle.
Vor Lady Lister-Kaye is no other than lhe charming Natica Yznaga, sister of that brilliant Consuelo
Txnaga who later became duchess of .Manchester. Slender, where her sister became plump; clever In repartee;
full of blithe humor; dark eyed and of medium heigh;,
she has been for years ona of the conspicuous figures in
London society and a hostess Who could choose her
guests for Derby Orange. In Yorkshire, wltll perhap-4
more nicety of discrimination than her aister, the duchess,
She never gave u sign of abdication from the social
throne she assumed In England soon after her marriage.
Only last J**ar, when Queen Mury was letting fall those
hints of patriotism which told American women the door
was open for the parting guests, while the chill wind of
hospitality, wearied, nipped their warm smiles and airy
Biace.*., Lady Lister-Kaye created a sensation In London
by giving a harem skirt dinner party, nt which several

that these men be arrested and brought to pub!.- trial?'
A whole st ason of absence <*f entertainments by La"9y
Lister-Kaye and of no mention of the name of Litter*
Kaye In the society Journals had preceded this Indictment from the pulpit. The announcement of air John's
serious illness hastily followed it. And iheie came at
onco a generul report of tho sermon, a notoriety that
seemed to bo the coup de grace on a perishing honey.
The Casement report, ln Its first and second Installments, fully Justiilcd all the accusations of atro It - s

Rex Theatre
The Rex Theatre which opened Ita
doors to the public on Thursday
night, November 28th, is one of the
best moving picture houses to be
found anywhere in the West today,
and will stand for some time to
come as an example to the city of
Cranbrook, in archetecture and for
the method of providing general coin-
fort to ita patrons. Its decorations
and general appearance is par excellence, und can easily be considered
tbe neatest and best equipped building in the city.
At tbe openin night the proprietors very generously gave all thc
proceeds to Charity—Tho St. Eugene
Hospital—which amounted to a good
round sum, tor the house was packed
to the doors and many were turned
The building presents several special features in the line of Moving
Picture show houses. The room n
which the operator in stationed and
where all Inflnmnble material ls to
found is encased with fire,proof walls
and all openings arc fitted «-ith automatic shutters so that a lire could
be burning furiously inside and no
one in the building be aware of the
fact. Th s is an admirable arrangement as the lesion only taught u
few weeks ago in ono of these houses
in tho Stntes where a lire began and
several mot their death and many
were Injured, will never bo forgetten,
The Special caro which has been
mode for tho comfort of thc eyes Is
also an added adjunct to the well-
faro of the patrons. Tbo whole of
the Interior has been fitted with a
special light called "Eye Comfort
System" designed by A. A. Johnson,
manager of thc Rex and manufactured by thc Alhort RechrlBt Manufacturing Co., Denver Colorado, which
tirm makes a specialty of this class
of electrical fittings; the Qualn Electrical Co-, nre their local agents and
all the electrical fittings tn the
'Rex"   were obtained through them.
Another strong feature ls ths
method of exfts. There ore at tho
back ot the building two large exits
provided; at the side of which there
Is,   during the preforniance, theword
Exit" showing in large red letters,
lit up by enclosed electric lights.
Itmight he specially remarked that
all doors in the building open outward—a good feature in Itself.
It was throuhh the C. C. S. that
all the furnishings hnve been obtained, the seats whlcb nre so comfortable were made by specialists the
American Senting Co., who hnve
appointed thc C.C.S. as their local representatives.
All   the designing and architecture
l the building was done by A. A.
Johnson, the manager himself, and
be is to lie congratulated on thc exquisite taste he has displayed. Tbe

Many years ago .Miss Ellen Terry
was playing Naomi in Ibe "Green
Bushes" at an old Dublin theatre, und
towards the end of the play was supposed to commit suicide by jumping
into the river! Ono night, when she
reached the usual eminence of rock
to jump off. she found, to her dismay
that n.o mattress had heen placed lu
tkt river tor her to fall on, so down
she came on ihe bare boards with a
hard thud. Her confusion was intense, but it was Increased tenfold
when a voice from the gallery sang
out In a rich brogue, Och, be jabers,
the water's frozen! This remark set
lhe house ln a roar, and fairly spoiled
Miss Terry's sensational scene.

Ottawa, Nov. 26.—When the house
met. J. A. M. Alkina, Brandon, introduced u hlH to amend the Hank
act. He explained thut section ss of
the net forbade a bank to lend money tn the farmer on his threshed
grain, no matter how (ireat tbe
quantity or how safely it te Stored,
The farmers may borrow on other
products, but the same privilege is
not accorded tbe producer of grain,
although it is probably the beBt security. That can be given. The proposed amendment provides that money may be loaned to farmers on the
security of his grain 51 nd the general
products of the farm.
Dr. Schaftner-What about livestock?
Mr. Atkins— I am in favor of tho
loaning of money upon live-stock but
the urgency is not so great nor the
reason so apparent.
The member for Drandoa then proceeded to give his reason for introducing the bill. The farmer, more
particularly in the west, requires
money us soon aa bis crop is bar-
vested and threshed. The time between the harvest and the coming 0?
winter   is very short, so it is necss-
sury   that   the farmer Bhould devote
ns much time as possible to thc pwl
paration of his land for the crop of
the   next    season.    However,  bo can
meets   hiH   pressing obligations only
by   taking bis grain to market.   He
proposed    to have loans on the products   of   tliu farm made on pledged
receipts,    and th b would obviate the
! necessity   for chattle mortgages,    It
would   tend to relieve congestion  In
I the   marketing   of   the   drain,    as it
i would leave thc farmer free to sell It
I when it best suits bis purposes,
I    W. F. Maclean    wus urging the in*
1 elusion of loans on live Btock in the
[bill   on the score that many farmers
devote themselves almost entirely to
that   line.     Hon. W. T. White   rose'
and informed the house that the new
bank act shortly to be brought down
would   authorize    ths   hank to make
loans   on   the   products of the farm,
live stock  included.    He would leave
it   to    the   member   for   Brandon in
view   of   this statement to withdraw
his   hill   or   allow lt to have a tlrst
Mr.  Aikins said he would prefer to
have the bill go to first rending.

International relations in Europe,
as respects the situation created by ;
the Balkan war, appear to hnve altered for the worst within the last
ten days. Russia and Austria are
mobilising their troops on their mu-|
tual frontiers, the latter nlso on its-
southern boundaries, nnd Germany is
said to have notified its reserves to
hold themselves in readiness. England, France, Germany and Italy are
on tenterhooks, pulled different ways
by the understanding of the tirst two
with Russia and hy the alliance of
the last two with Austria, while at
the same time individual interests of
their own contllct with their obligations to Russia and Austria reflectively.
England and France alike sincerely desire peace. Germany seems to
be trying to restrain Austria from
going to war and to cow or bluff
Russia, but the unknown quantity
here is the sincerity of the German
government. The Italians detest thc
Austrians, and the govcrament of 1-
tuly dreads the ambitions of Austria
along the Adriatic and on the Aegean.     The  people of Italy may yet
force their sovereign to hreah with
the monarch of Aust-ria-pungnry.
The European air is loaded with
latent lightning. The Balkans are
exploding powder houses. The great
powers on the north and west are
powder-magazines that are dangerously I kely to he exploded by tho
Balkan war. The foreign department of each of these powers is in a
state of mind nnd temper where a
careless act or even and unguarded
utterance may be the spark to the
Ruchtensfon can not long continue.
The leash on the dogs of war may
snap at any moment. The break may
come while or after the Balkan allies and Turkey nre negotiating
peace. It may happen before. The
most that seems to be hoped this
week is that the great powers may
defer attempts to solve the problems
created by the war until they can
hold a conference on the tentative results of the Torco-Balkan settlement.
