Ottawa, Dec. 7.—In the presence ol
tlio Duchess nl Connaught and tlio
Princess Patricia, who occupied
seats mi the (loot of the house, and
probably tha largest crowd that ever
taxed tlie gallorloB, Premier Borden,
promptly nt 8.10 last Monday after
uoon, ruse to introduce lus naval
bill. Tin*' leading feature of the hill
Is Uie proposal to ask parliament d
vote thirty-five million ilollins to lib
majesty for the building of three ol
ttie most modern drcaduniiKiits afloat,
tliese tn he part of llie British navy,
nnd to he used for the common tie
lense uf the empire.
Other essential features of the premier's announcement wns thai he
had received assurances tlmt ii at
any time Canada decided to establish
a navy of her own, or a unit of the
British navy, the ships shall he re
called; that arrangements will bo
made to give Canadians the opportunity to serve as oilicers and men
in the dreadnoughts whieh Canada
is giving; that the ships will he
built under the supervision of the
admiralty in thc United Kingdom,
for the reason that at present their
are no adequate facilities for constructing them iu Canada.
In connection with the lutter announcement, Premier Borden informed the house that the additional cosl
of constructing the three dreadnoughts in Canada would be in the
vicinity of $12,000,000.
Tbe preliminary portion of the premier's speech was devoted to an
outline of the development of Great
Britain and the oversea dominions.
This led to a consideration of the
necessity for co-operation in matters of trade and defense.
The premier quoted in full the memorandum of the admiralty dealing
with international affairs, and whicli
was prepared at the request of the
Canadian government. The most
striking feature of the memorandum
was that the British government had
informed Canada that it had no hesitation in saying that after a prolonged consideration of all the circumstances, it was desirable thai
such aid as Canada might give
should include the provision ol a
certain number of the largest and
strongest sliips of war which science
coold build or money supply
When Mr. Borden rose to make his
historic announcement he was received with cheering and much
pounding ot the desks by his followers. Throughout the deliverance
of his speech, which lasted from
3.10 kntil 4.25, he adhered closely to
his manuscript.
Someone to the back of the chamber starteh to sing ''Rule Britannia," while Mr .1 A M A i kens* .mil
his desk-mate, Mr .1 Bainvllle, tbe
member for ChambUy, who this session moved the address in replv to
the speech from the throne, struck up
"Ood Save the King " The national
anthem won out. and in a moment
the members ol the house, both Liberal and Conservative, were on tbeir
feet and Blnglng al the top of their
lungs
Premier Borden said in part
"With the increasing power and Influence ol Canada within the empire,
due to its remarkable growth and es
panston la the past quartet ot ,i cen
turv, thert has necessarily come, tn
sure ami gradual steps, a certain de
velnpiiient in our relations witli the
Cnited Kingdom mid other dointn
ions In this we are noccasarilj
confronted with the problem ol com
bining co-operation with autonomy
It seems most essential that there
should be such co-operation in defence
ami trade as w-HI give to the whole
empire an effective organisation In
these matters of vilal concern Od
tbe other hand, eacb dominion must
preserve in all important respects
tlie autonomous government which it
now possesses
"Tbe responslblllt) ol Ibe empire's
defence on xto high seas, which bos
hitherto been assumed bv the I nited
Kingdom, has earned with it re
sponsibility tor nml full conl ml ol
the   foreign    policy. When  Great
Britain no longer assumes sole re
sponsibility, site can no longel OS
same sole control ol foreign pollcj
whicli is clOSClv, vitally and COn
stantly associated with that de
fence iu which the dominions participate.
'•During my recent visit to Ureal
Britain, 1 ventured on manv public
occasions to propound the principle
that the great dominions sharing in
the defence of tlte empire must necessarily he entitled to share In the
responsibility for and in the control
of the foreign policy. No declaration that 1 made was greeted more
heartily and enthusiastically than
this. Not only his majesty's leaders,
but also the leaders of the opposite
political party in Great Britain have
explicitly accepted this principle, nnd
have affirmed their conviction tliat
the means by which it can be con- j
stitutionally accomplished must he!
sought and utilized without delny. |
"Shortly after lhe session closed, I
I went to Kngland, accompanied hy
some of my colleagues, nnd for several weeks we conferred wilh the
British   government anil with      the

OCEAN YACHT
SIB THOMAS LUTON  K.-.fKIVI-.S
WITH   ENTHUSIASM    SUGGESTION     FOR      BACK
PROM SAN FRANCISCO
TO HONOLULU.
That the internation.il yaclii race
of 1915 at San Francisco will be the
greatest in the history of yachting is
already becoming evident, liefore Sir
Thomas l.ipton left the Bay city as
suraaces had been given that in addition to the Upton boat and that
built by the San Francisco syndi
cote, Hawaii would enter a boat,
and plans are being formulated for a
great ocean race from San Francisco
to the islands after the close ol the
races at San Francisco.
When the challenge to the world
was issued by Sir Thomas Lipton to
compete tor tbe blue ribbon nl tin-
seas in Son Francisco waters in
1915, a yacht race thai would excel
former competitions was practically
assured.     Now  it is more certain.
Swift as the answer came from
San Francisco thai the challenge
would be accepted, and a boat buill
and manned io sail againsl tho
Shamrock, lhe assurance that Ila
wait will also answer the challenge
witb an island built boat comes with
equal speed, and with all the more
enthusiasm al its reception because
it was unexpected
Sir Thomas received the announce
ment with enthusiasm In ihc con
versatlon the plans grew, until it
bad been planned thai the series ol
races to be held in San Francisco
waters should be concluded, will) on
ocean race from San Francisco bay
to linn..lulu harbor
"How far is It?"
"How is tile watei''"
These were the only questions thai
l.ipton asked before he joined in the
eothu.siasui ol the suggestion.
"But I must have a steamer to
Inllow my yacht," he added. For the
plan was moving ahead as swiftly as
tbe race itself.
"You'll have that steamer, and
every yacht in the race shall have .1
steamer to follow her," was thc
quick response of the man from the
islands
All that is necessary tu complete
tbe picture is to recollect that
steamers nowadays hair wireless.
and that the world will re.nl first
each tnormn*-,, In tlmse days ol 1016,
tbe story of the greatest Interna
tionnl ocean race thai has ever been
contested
No soooer had the plans been made
than telegrams and wireless mes
sages were sent by the 'Frisco Chronicle to all the great yacht clubs, nii-
nouncinn. the fact that Honolulu as
well as San Francisco would nccepl
the challenge nf the British yachts*
man, and Inviting them tn min in
the great event, thnt promises to
hold the attention of all tlte world in
1915, as no other single contest in
the realm of iporl has ever done be
fore
When Colonel Parker called on sir
Thomas, the British ynchtsmnn had
little idea of the purport ol the visit.
Colonel Parker came with .lohn n
Soper, retired brigadier general ol
thr Honolulu National flu.ml
lulu," he told Sir Thomas, "and
when 1 ro hack there ! am gofng to
endeavor to Ret     some of our people
together and build a boat to compete with ynu here in 1015."
"That's line. Do it," was the
comment  of lhe Britisher.
"Why don'l you issue a formal
acceptance of Sir Thomas' challenge, was suggested to Colonel
Parker.
"1 want to wait until.I &eX the
others together," he said. "There's
110 doubt hut that t|iey will do it,
but they might Ibink that I was taking too much ou myself if I didn't
wait until I get hack before accepting the challenge in the name of the

"But I tell you what I will do,"
he added, as the interest in the conversation progressed, "I will give
$20,000 myself toward the fun'fl for

But that was only the way it began. Colonel Parker soon raised his
own contribution to $25,000, and before Ioiir the wireless was sizzling
the message through the air that

"And why not finish with a race

Hawaii.
"How far is it'.'" asked l.ipton.
"Twn thousand and eighty-nine

"And how's the water'.'"
"Smooth in summer, with a good
sailing breeze every day."
"Bui I must have a steamer to

"You'll have that steamer, ami

Colonel Parker.

BOOTH MEMORIAL SCHEME
PROPOSAL TO   ESTABLISH
TRAINING INSTITUTION AS
\  MEMORIAL TH THK
FOUNDKR OF THK
SALVATION ARMY.
There is considerable activity
among Salvationists ami friends ol
the Salvation Army throughout the
Dominion in connection with the pin
posed erection of a memorial to tbe
life-work ol General William Booth,
the founder of this world-wide movement. If loving devotion to the
grand old man and active aoxlety towards the accomplishment of ihi'.
scheme count for anything, ihe training Institution, which has been decided Upon In take tlie form of this
memorial, will become an established
fact.
There is a widespread feeling

career.
for ureal qualities of command, courage, and strength of will They are
always the people wlm represent the
Salvation Army. How important it
is, therefore, that every opportunity
shnuld be given for preparation and
suitable study before Ihey commence
iheir life's work.
At the moment the Army is handicapped in this respect, inasmuch an
tbe accommodation of the present
college is considerably overtaxed,
and, therefore, llie idea of this me-
morlal is not only one of sentiment,
but of necessity.
The provision for adeuuafe accommodation for one hundred and
twenty-five persons (125), and an
up-to-date equipment, would involve
an expenditure of two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars ($250,000.00).
This may appear a large amount, but
we believe the money would he well
spent, as it would be an investment
securing great and beneficial results
for    the future of our nation.
Whatever can be done to make this
institution a fact should have the
hearty support of every man and woman who wishes the best for his day
and generation. We can conceive of
nothing that is likely to bear a better fruitage, in improved conditions)
by improving men, than an institution given up to the solution of
moral aud economic problems, and
showing its students how to apply
its findings to thc conditions of
every-day life in the neediest quarters of the cities. General Booth
was a master in this realm, and the
purpose to perpetuate his memory
by providing for such an institution
as the one referred to seems lo he
peculiarly fitting.
Donations towards this verv
worthy object can he addressed to
this office or forwarded direct toi
Commissioner David M. Bees, Toronto, Ontario.
The officers in charge of the local
work here have plans on foot for the
part the local corps shall take iu
this effort. A subscription list will

RECIPROCITY AND LIVE STOCK
A few days ago George Lane, of
High River, took a train load of beef
cattle matured on tlte Albertn prairies to Chicago where he sold them
at a price that netted him tl 00 a
hundred more than he could have
got for them in Canada after lie paid
the heavy freight charges and the
duty, which is supposed to be high
enough to keep out Canadian cattle,
says tbe Medicine Hat News. The
duty amounted to an average of between I2.'i am! Mu per animal.
George Lane was and is yet a firm
believer in reciprocity. Win* In
Ibis particular case he would have
got at least t:~> a head more for his
cattle if lie had taken them to Chic
ngo as there would have bum no
dut\ to pa\ IT reciprocity had curried. Then the probability is that
the Chicago prices would have pre
Vailed in Winnipeg and lie could have
sold them there, thus saving a good
share of what this year lie was forced in pay Inr freight. Moreover,
tliere are hundreds of thousands of
cattle across the line which, If the
duty were taken off, could be bought
up and taken over to this side lor
finishing, for there is an abundance
»f leed for a quarter of a million
more cattle here, according to Mr.
Lane. To Ite able to do Ibis would
mean making even a larger ratio nf
profit on a much larger aggregate of
cattle It is no wonder thnt Mr.
Lane, as well as the other leading '■
cattle men ol the west, are Strong
for reciprocity. The only ones who
are not are those   who would rather

The story of "The Cingalee" may

an English title, leases a tea plantation of Cham buddy Ram. Tired of
being an idler, he undertakes the
management of it, and becomes en-
gaged to Xanoya, one of his tea girls,
a ward of Chamhuddy. Sir Peter

way up country to settle a native

of abduoting his wife, married to
him by proxy, in her fourth year,
whom up to the moment he hasn't
seen, of Illegally leasing her properly,
to Vereker, and ol stealing a valuable black pearl, bought for him in
London Iiy this same Ram.
While Sir Peter is stopping at the
plaatatlon, both natives appear, antl

that, tlie time has arrived when the

sition to advance iis interests at Ottawa. Al present South Kast Kootenay is practically unrepresented at

took does what he can, hut he is not,
nowadays, in close touch with this
Section. It is to be assumed tbat
R. F. Oreen, M.P., will also overlook no opportunity of serving the
hsst interests of this section, but we
need a man at Ottawa, who belongs to South East Kootenay, who
knows its possibilities and requirements who will work iudcfatigably,
whenever occasion offers, to secure
fair aiid generous treatment for this
section of the province.

vole of thanks and $5.04 was tender-
mi lo the janitor of the building for
his kindness in   providing     for    the
mfort of the Institute at tbe
monthly meetings. A motiou was
unanimously! carried protesting
igalnst ihe action of some local
merchants, who, in spite of the well
known fact that hundreds of acres
d potatoes were grown in this district tne past season have ordered
their winter supply from outside
dealers. The feeling of the Institute,
voiced by those present was that
many local merchants preferred to
import Ashcroft potatoes, rather
than give tbe agricultural interests
if the district un opening for home
grown produce. Several hinted that
us they had to dispose of their produce outside it would be advisable to
buy outside as well.

C. P. R, IMPERIAL
lip HELO-UP
BY LONE   BANDIT, WHO ESCAPES, WITH A FAIRLY OOOD
HAUL.
A train holdup that for boldness
lias never heen equalled in Vancouver
was perpetrated last Saturday night
just as the Canadian Pacific railway's "Imperial Limited" transcontinental passenger train, leaving
Vancouver at 7.15 p.m., was passing
out of the city limits.
A man disguised by a black mask
hoarded the train as it was passing
the British Columbia Sugar refinery,
a mile and a half out, entered the
Pullman and at the point of a revolver forced the passengers and tlie
Pullman conductor jo hand over tlieir
money and valuables. The man
dropped oil the train just before it
arrived at Ha met, which in six
miles from the city.
Tlte total loss was S308 in bills,
two watches and one chain, one diamond ring and two English sovereigns, amounting to about Sll). The
conductor contributed i'ixi of the
$3U8. There is no trace ol the robber.
The holdup was done in such a
finished manner and with such a
nicely planned time allowance that
only the Pullman car victims were
aware of the man's presence, consequent 1>, while the passengers of
that car crouched back from the menace of the bandit's revolver and he
swiftly went through their pockets
and travelling hags, the train continued merrily on its way. The
tram conductor proceeded with his
task of collecting tickets from the
.la\ coaches, the tourist passengers
made preparations to settle down
for the night, members ol the train
CttlW paced through the cars, and all
seemed well.
Tl ngtueer   pulled    the whistle
cord as the train neared Barnet and
thc bandit hacked out of the Pullman
door, swung over the rear raiting and
dropped oil The passengers still
sat still, afraid to move. Seconds-
passed, then hy otic impulse ihey
lumped to thelt feet aud rushed forward through llie train. One of
Ihem lotind the conductor and shouted out the news. He readied up and
jerked the signal cord and tlie train
came to a halt at Barnet.
The Vancouver police were notified
ami a posse set out in automobiles,
but nn trace of the robber was
found. He could easily have returned to Vancouver through
woods or perhaps escaped by
launch on tlte inlet.
The robber   was a  very tall,
and dark man.
FOR A CANADIAN NAVY.
Ottawa, Ont., Dec 11.—Liberals held a second caucus this
morning to consider the policy
to be adopted in regard to the
government's naval   program.
It broke up at twelve o'clock.
Members stated that xto. decision reached at the lirst caucus to Minimi un amendment
to the government's proposal
was unanimously adopted a
general oui line of the amendment was approved, but it
was left to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and the ex-ministers to
make a Iinal draft of it to he
submitted to the consideration of the house.
The amendment will declare
in favor of the principle of a
Canadian navy and incidentally condemn Premier Borden's
plan in its present form.
It is not likely that it will
be made public until Sir Wilfrid submits it lo the house
on conclusion of his speech.
It Is stated that the opposition during the course of the
debate will not take exception
to an emergency gift so much
as they will object to the alleged departure from the long
standing relation whieli exists
between Canada and the mother countr*.. No decision as
to how far the opposition will
press its proposed amendment
will be arrived at, it is under.
stood, until after the Christmas holidays. They say they
want to see how the government's proposal strikes the
country six weeks hence.
For that reason the debate
will not be allowed to reach a
conclusion before i 'bristmas
holidays. Subsequent to the
caucus this morning Liberal
ex-ministers met in Sir Wilfrid's office to consider the
form tlie proposed amendment
will take.

, There he was charmed by the line

much the proprietors wauled for

price and the deal was closed. Mr.
I Finlay bas put a good man In charge

PRESS AND OTHER COMMENTS
the
Sir Wilfrid Laiiner's remark]
talned a significant reference t<
fact thai the Burden bill is not
emergency measure II may be that
■Sir Wilfrid is anticipating any
churgc   of    obstruction   which    may
uie from the government side later
on if the debate is a length) one,
it may even presage a motion to
refer the question ol a contribution
to the people
The principles of Liberalism forbid
that this aspect of the question he
overlooked, ami as II is not contended that an actual emergency Is impending this feature of the Borden
proposals may very property he vigorously presseil upon the attention
of the Canadian electorate. This is
evident from the tenor ot many pas
sages in the premier's speech that
this aspect ol his programme has not
been lost' sight of hy himself.
No head of a responsible govern*
meot in Canada can get away from
the very serious constitutioii.il principles Involved, and Mr. Dorden Is
too serious a statesman lo com
plelely ignore them, though few ul
his followers, even in his cabinet,
pear to appreciate their gravity.

The paper asks how the new de
• elopmcnt is to be reconciled with
the preservation ol imperial control
iver the foreign polio Altogether
ii thinks it is a must hazardous
step.
The Toronto World's (Independent!
editorial is only nf.een lines long under the caption "We do not need to
boast.''     It says:
"The Canadian parliament yesterday discharged a Iun-; delayed duty
that the Canadian people would h**w

millions towards impeiial naval defense that we were no lunger willing
to remain under tbe stigma oi allowing tlie motber country and her
sorely taxed people to pay ttie price
of defending our shores and our
trades and citi/ens.
"We cannot afford   tn do any brag
ging under the circumstances but   we

ourselves."
PREMIER   McBRIDE  SATISFIED
When questioned as to his opinion
of the naval policy as stated in parliament by Right Hon. It [.. Horden.
Sir Richard McBride said.
"I can only express my very ereat
satisfaction with thc manner it;
which the prime minister has, on behalf of the Canadian people, realised
the duty of the Canadian people In
the matter of imperial defence."
This is the same Sir Richard McBride, who fur months past has been
demanding naval protection for the
Pacific coast, hut when the boss says
"No," wait a while, our "Dick" is
quite ready to acquiesce.
CALGARY ALBERTAN
As the prime minister m his speech
holds out no hope ol a Canadian
navy, the question that will he more
seriously discussed will he the comparative merits of the I.aurier policy
and the policy of a direct contribution. We regret that the govern*
ment has wandered far from the
traditional policy o( this countr*.
and has forgotten the struggles our
forefathers made lor liberty o( action, and   has    handed over a       (tee
gilt of thirty-five million dollars,
which goes from our control absolute!) and forever The premier, in
his address, practically announced
that Canada had forgotten its high
aspirations and humbly confessed our
inability to organize a nav> of oat
own to protect our shores and to
furnish assistance to the British navv
in time ol war
tte are handing over 155,000,000
and we have no -.upervision of the
expenditure. We shall have representation on the imperial defence
council, hut that is merely an advisory body, without a word of authority. That is one serious feature. We arc establishing a new
principle in our relations with the
mother country, or rather we are reviving an old principle which was
abandoned years ago.
If Canada has any need Ior a navv
it is to police its shores But
Dreadnoughts are nni police vessels
and are not used to protect com
mercc.
The Albertan has an abiding faith
in the Laurier naval policy It is
possible that it was too timid and
did not ndvance as rapidly as Canadians desired, but it was based upon
proper principles. It was on solid
foundations If lhe Horden govern
mral bad   built  a  worthy structure
on that foundation it would have
done well
I'he new polici Is not a courageous
      We pa} oui obligation to    llie
mother count n [n rohl cash We dn

Ttie mother country is m no iwd ol
money, but it is in treat need ol
men
The Borden naval policy in the end
will do mischief in this country It
will be popular, without doubt. It
will go forth with a swing ami a
ruar and will carry the frivolous and
flippant It will probably win an
election When it has done its
d'Jtv. the crafty politicians will insist upon another contribution to win
another election and io it will go on
until wt shall have on this continent
tlw same mad race for armament
that is bankrupting Britain and
threatening civilization.
There is t.o emergency. There is
control- There is no guarantee,
expectation or hope tor a Canadian
y. It is a right about lace in
our methods of administration. It
weakens our autonomy. It In au
enormous amount of money. It is
but the bcginnine of unnecessary naval expenditure.
The Halites Morning Chronicle

Borden'*, contribution is a political
expedient designed to evade the responsibility of formulating a permanent naval polici and of discharging the national duty bv the
cheap expedient of sending a check

Victoria, Dor. 10.—Outside ol the
agricultural lands, those under water, covered with snow, or still unexplored, it is estimated that there
is in British Columbia au area of ti">
million acres capable ol producing
merchantable timber. It- E. Dene-
diet, chief ol operation in the forest
branch, stated recently tbat tbe
amount of wood annually added to
tlie standing forests through the natural process of growth, is IHD teet
per acre. Hence it would appear
that .six and a half billion leet ol
timber is being added as Interest t"
the wood capital everv vear.
Tliis is an amount considerably
greater than that of all the lumber
rut in the Dominion in the year
1910.
Mi      Benedlcl   places tbe value ol
this growth   roughlj at SlOO.OOO,

this amount will certainly accrue  At

Central British Columbia will give

"Possibilities ot Western i'inos as a
Source of Naval Stores," describes
a series of experiments carried on in
Arizona, Colorado and California, in
which the trees tapped lor rosin under the ordinary ctip-and-gutter system yielded two-thirds the amount
obtained from the pines of (leorgia
and Florida, where turpentining is
an old and established industry.
The weather conditions naturally
retarded tho (low of gum, but Forester Detts believes that in time it is
possible that the west will derive a
new revenue from its pine trees.
These facts are of especial interest
to British Columbia, whose inland
bills are largely covered with this
species of conifer.

ihis mattei warrants, wc believe,
thr devotion ol so mticli space to its
full presentation to onr roadors.
Thc Hern Id musl confess thai ll
doi's not like Mi. Borden's solution
of the naval problem. It strikes us
as being more in tbc nature ol n
makeshift, to avoid the admitted (lit
Acuities of working oui a trulj ('ana
dian polict' V.i Borden's pollcj is
to make a gifl of three Dread
noughts to ilie British government,
at a cost of $:-..*!,ooo.ooo, which ii
will be up to the home governmenl
to man and maintain. As a matter
of f.iet Canada's only pari in the
policy will be lo pay for ilie Dreadnoughts. Only a few years ogo Mr,
Hnrden was heart and soul for a Canadian nav\, built, maintained by
Canada, tn be controlled by Canada
and kept in Canadian waters, unless
some extreme emergency rose, when
it would he turned ovei to the British admiralty Why he has ennnged
his views, will doubtless appear In
due course, hut, for mir part. we
cannot hut regret, that ii Canada is
lo undertake thc finding ol sn large a
sum of money, it should nnt have
been arranged that its expenditure
would have made a flrsl invest menl,
so lo say, in a Canadian navy.
However, Premier Horden is in
control uist now and he can commit
Canada tn any kind of a naval policy
that suits his followers, and we
must lake this amount oi saiisfac
tion out of it, that Canada is, at
last going tn do something to share
in tbe vast and ever Incrc&sing
cost of maintaining one of lhe chief
defensive powers nf the Brilish cm
pi re.
In our opinion the Torpnto tllobc
aptly sizes up the situation) iu the
lollowlng comment:
"Mr. Borden has dealt a deadly
blow at thc principle of a Canadian
naval defence force. His policy,
us announced in the hnuse nf commons todaj, was a policy of tri-
butc. Forgot len are his fervent
words of .March, 19Q9, in lavor nf a
Canadian navy; forgotten his expressions of national pride as be
joined Mr Foster upon that occasion
in urging that Canadian manhood as
well as Canadian motley should he
devoted lo the safeguarding nf the
empire at sea Today be niters
Britain the price nf ihree Dreadi
noughts, hut nnt a sailor i<> man
them So long as tbe Borden
Dreadnoughts remain m British waters every man on hoard must be
paid his wages otlt of the British
treasury, and every round of a minim
tion tired must be supplied by the
llritish taxpayer. Only in thc
event of Canada recalling the ships
to form the nucleus of a Canadian
unit stationed in Canadian waters
will Canada pay for tbe maintenance
of the s-hips that, in tbe premier's
Rrandiloquent words, are to bear
"historic names associated witli this
country." Side by side with the
ships built by Canada and maintained bv Britain will float Australia's
great fighting ships, built, owned,
and maintained hv the overseas Com
monwealth that has resolved to lly
her own flag at her own cnst over
her own ships

its logical  conclusion,  would destroy

"Mr. Borden takes too mean a
view of Canada's destiny. If au
emergency is shown to evist— which,
as Sir Wilfrid I.aurier indicated, is
still a matter of doubt—and if Canada is to contribute at once $3f>.000,-
000 for the construction of three)
Dreadnoughts, the ships should bo
built to the order of Canada, they
should fly the llag uf the Canadian
naval service, and tbey should be
maintained, whether in 'the North
Sea nr on this side of the Atlantic,
bv the peoplo of Canada. Only in
ihat way can the Dominion do her
dutc tn the empire and to herself.
Only iu that way can Canadian*'
show themselves worthy of the great
traditions of their Anglo-Saxon and
Norman ancestors. Mr Borden ami,
lus supporters stand for a vote oi
M5,000,000 for the building of Dread
noughts to be maintained by the British taxpayer. Let Liberals show
their devotion to the empire and to
Canadian autonomy hy demanding
that Canada shall maintain as well
as build the ships, and by declaring
thai when they are built they will
be kept bv Canada in the North
Sea, or tbe Atlantic, or wherever
the admiralty advises the parliament
if Canada they will most effectively
aid in upholding the llag of the I'niled empire Mr. Borden proposes
tribute, not a partnership. Liberalism can have no part or lot in a
policy that Australia long ago found
Inconsistent with the self-respect of a
great, free, self-governing slate.
•'Dreadnoughts if you will, Mr.
Borden, but Dreadnoughts the maintenance of which will not add to Ihe
great burden on the shoulders of the
British taxpayer "

PRESS IND OTHER COMMENTS 0N1HVHL POLICY
(Continued trom page one).
Befoie going into caucus a variety
of opinions were privately expressed
by Liberal members and senators and
it was held there were some grounds
fm criticism.
In other quarters it was definitely
learned that the Liberals had decided
not to agree with the government'
proposals but to move an amend
ment. The amendment may be i
declaration In favor of the Liberal
policy of a Canadian built or manned
navy or it may follow tbe lines declaring three Dreadnoughts should be
maintained by Canada until such
time as they could become a part
of a permanent Canadian navy,
It was learned that at the caucus
satisfaction was expressed because
the memorandum of the admirnlty
did not establish that a pressing
emergency exists. In this the Liberals claim to find a full justification
nf tlie principle of a Canadian policy
which can be expanded to the full extent of the figures suggested in the
memorandum and tbis they consider
thc true imperial poficy.
It was contended in some quarters that a weak point in the plan
is that it involves practical abandonment of a Canadian navy; that nn
real emergency has liern shown to
exist and that, if Canada does propose to give three Dreadnoughts to
the British admiralty, there can lie
no relief for the tavpayer    of     tlw

prominent Liberal declared that if he
had am say in the matter he
would move that Canada should assume the cost of the upkeep of three
Dreadnoughts until sucli time as*
they could become part of the Canadian navy.
At the conclusion of the Liberal
caucus an ex-minister ol the crown
said: "We bad an enthusiastic and
unanimous gathering. TJie policy of

ONTARIO     LIBERAL   LEADER'S
VIEWS.
\. VV. Rowell. K.C, leader of tin-
Ontario Liberal parly, today addressed the Gait club a non-political
organization, on "Canadian autonomy and imperial unity."
Speaking of Hon. Mr. Borden's
naval pronouncement, Mr. Rowell
said:
"In view or the great burden (ireal
Britain is now carrying in naval defence, a burden Involving thc gift
uf her sons to man her ships as well
is money to maintain them, in vie.v
nf the great demands on the Hritish
exchequer ho* money to carry out
important schemes on social re
form. I cannot but confess my own
great personal regret that Canada is
not manning and maintaining as well
as giving these Dreadnoughts,
"Why should we impose upon the
Hritish people and the Hritish es
chequer the obligation ol manning
and maintaining ships when Canada
is well able to do so herself''
In view of the statement that
(ireat llritain has been compelled in
withdraw her naval forces from the
outposts of the empire in order to
strengthen the forees at the renter
and that she is not able to maintain
naval forces either in the North At
lantic or North Pacific, where ad
littedly such Inrccs are needed, I
annot hut express my personal   reg
ret that Canada is not now under
taking to carry out the naval agree
ment of 1011 between (Ireat Hritain.
Canada and Australia, whereby Canada assumes the responiibility for
providing the forces necessarv, both
iu ships and in men, to protect these
naval bases, to lly tbc white ensign
on these seas, to protect the trade
routes as well as the honor and integrity of tlie empire, inst as Australia is now doing tn Australian
waters.
"For over twenty five years Great
Britain has been asking us lo take
part in the naval defence of the empire. Surely the people of Canada
have had enough time to make up
Iheir minds as to what our naval pol-
icy should he.
"Surely it is '■■■■ necessary to defer longer a statement of this policy.
Tlie whole of the address of the
prime minister .-. :is a most cogent
argument against further delay and
as a Canadian citizen may I express
tbe earnest hope that the government wil! see its way clear before
the present bill goes through the
house to undertake the manning and
maintaining ol the ships which it is
proposed tn build and definitely to
assume the '-sponsibility on behalf
<>f Canada of protecting the naval
liases of tin- North Atlantic and
North Pacific as provided iu the
terms of th.- naval agreement of
I'M]."
Mr. Borden's secret is out and
everyone has know-i m for week-,
1 .oi.dn is asked to contribute $35,-
1100,000 to the I)o.vii.ig -Heel tl
rliequer for the purpose of building
three Dreadnoughts. There is nothing seriously object ion.iMo in the
proposal provided one is not '.oo
finnicky nu the question of taxation
without representation. Canada can
afford it. The big question is
vhether the Horden proposal is the
best for the empire.

much to think over and it would pay

COLD SORES   ami ULCERS ARE
HEALED in* ZAM-BUK.
Cold sores, chapped bands, ulcers,
and winter eczema are common
troubles just now, and for all tlii-se
Zam-Buk will be found tbo surest
ami quickest remedy. Sometimes
cold sores arise from chilblains on
liie toes or lingers, ami in tlie former case, where colored socks are
in, there is a danger of blood-
poisoning Irom ibe dye. Zam-Buk
lieing so powerfully antiseptic re.
moves the danger as soon as applied
ami quickly heals.
.Mr. W. .1. llalliday, oi Asll Grove,
Out., says: "I had my little linger
frozen, and il cracked at tho lirst
joint, causing a bad sore, which ilis-
'•liarged freely ami would not heal,
Tbe pain was very bad, am! 'lie
tbe whole of my hand became swollen and in hud shape.
"A friend advised me to try Zam-
Buk, and I soon found that Zam-Buk
wus altogether different to any preparation 1 had ever tried. In a
very short time it   healed tiie sore."
.Miss Lille May, of Sloney Creek,
(Int., says: "A few weeks since, several nasty, disfiguring cold sores
suddenly broke out on my lips, wbieh
became much swollen. Seeing my
condition, a friend advised me to try
Zam-Buk and leave all other preparations aside. This 1 did, and was
much pleased, after a few applications of this balm. In see every sore
healed."
Zam-Buk will also be found a sure
i-ure for eczema, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, sealp sores, ringworm, inflamed patches, babies'

In tbeir report on tlie sheep industry the commissioners who investigated it on behalf ot tbe Dominion
government slate, among other
things, that sheep in this country
are, as a rule, poorly housed nnd
poorly fed, that severe losses are
sustained through lack of propel
care during tho winter season and
tbat from shearing to marketing no
country in tlie world handles iis
wool in a worse manner Desnles
pointing nut these weaknesses of
many Canadian sheep raisers the
commissioners report fully upon the
state of the industry in (ireat llritain and describe how old country
shepherds handle their Hocks. "Fvid
enws of a definite object in breeding
operations," they slate, "are t" be
tound on every hand, a certain demand being kept in view and every
effort made to build up a reputation,
and afterwards to hold it." A iai

There wan evidently something on
Mrs. Nerviss's mind. For several
days she had been very much preoccupied, aud finally Nerviss himself,
fearful that he might In some wav
have been the cause of it, made certain subtle inquiries designed ti
clear the situation up.
"Mow's thr new cook getting on,
Maria.'" he asked, as a feeler. "Does
she—does she seem satisfied with her
place here?"
"Oh, perfectly," said Mrs. Nerviss
"She remarked only yesterday that
she had never lived with such . nice
people as we are, and she said she
felt like one who had traveled and
found her home at last"
Nerviss resumed his newspaper. It
was not a domestic difficulty that
was so depressing his good wife, bul
this was not particularly reassuring,
for he now came to have an uneasy
feeling that he was himself the cause
of her troubles. So he began again,
resolved to take the hull by the
horns.
"I hope you didn't mind my coming
in so late from the club last Tuesday night, Maria," he said. "One
o'clock is an unholy hour I know,
but, really, 1 couldn't help it very
well.     Vou see—"
"Not at all, -lames, dear." the
good lady answered. "I think it is
a g°od thing to do once in a while
If Ihere is one thing in the world
tbat I should hate more than another
il would be to have your friends
think you were henpecked Healh, I
was glad yon staved as long as you
wanted to."
Nerviss drew a deep sigh of relief
That little poker game was not the
cause of her worry, nnd in all other
respects his conscience was clear Su
this time he plunged in boldly.
"Then what is the matter with \oa
Maria9" he demanded. "You can't
deceive me—you've got something on
your mind Vou are worrying about
something"
"I certainly am," said tbe lady,
her voice tremulous. "I am rerv
much worried. Do yon think ihe
people at our bank are honest,
■ fames "
"Why. certainly," laughed Wr.is*.
"Whatever made you think Ihey
weren't?"
"Well, something very strange has
happened lately," said Mrs Nerviss,
"and 1 think you ought to look into
it. You know you have been giving
me my allowance lately iu ten
dollar bills, and 1 have lieen deposit
ing them ut the hank "
"Yes, I am aware of thai," said
Nerviss.
"Well, somehow nr other I don't
like the looks of that receiving teller, .lames," said the ladv, "and so
for the past three weeks I have been
putting my initials on every hilt deposited, up in nne corner, and jeS
terdav, Mr Cleaver, the butcher. In
cashing a twenty-dollar check for me
handed    me   one    of     those   mai ked

HIS ACROSS AFRICA
KMII. LUND,   A 1UIODESIAN, ACCOMPLISHES  A TRAMP OF
5,000 MILES-VARIED EXPERIENCES.
Amid thronging dangers a historic
walk of 5,000 miles across Africa has
just been accomplished by Emil Lund,
a Kliodesian settler ot thirty-six,
says the Cape Town correspondent of
the "Standard."
Lund has walked from Cape Town
to Cairo, not in fulfilment of a wager, or without money, or to test a
system of diet or training, but simply from loVe of adventure, lie has
. been a soldier and scout since be
was seventeen, serving in tiie second
Matabele campaign in 180.3, tbe
Uganda rebellion of 1K.»7-M, ami the
Snutb African war.
lie started from Cape Town, and
walked, all alone, right through thei
Cape Provinee and the Transvaal to
Rhodesia. Tlience be continued
through the Congo State, the Soudan, and the Nubian Desert to Egypt
a distance of nearly 5,000 miles as
the crow flies

London, Dec. 10.—Colonel Ford,
founder of the National Reserve, has
been engaged, in conjunction
with two members of parliament, in
framing a bill forbidding the playing
of football except by those who have
rendered or who have hound themselves to render naval or military service to their country.
Laws for the suppression of football have already figured iu English
history. Ity an act of Edward III.,
football was prohibited as being one
if the pastimes responsible for the
decadence of arehery. In tbc reign
if Richard II. a similar statue was
enacted, and Henrv VIII.. Kiizabeth
and the early (leorges also made

story of his great walk, "was simply to he tbe lirst man to accomplish
the teat. I am proudest ol having
walked across tlie Nubian Desert.
That was tbe hardest tramp of all."
Until be left Elizabethville, in the
Relgian Congo, be had a cnnijurn-
tively easy time, for he could obtain
supplies, good food, and good water,
but beyond that point he had a very
trying time. He had no imiters,
carrying all his own Impedimenta,
weighing 70 lbs. This alone is no
iiHMii task in a tropical and wild
country. Mut he could gel nn na*
lives to accompany him owing to
tribal hostilities being in prognss.
During most of ibe time Mr. Luml
was obliged to be a vegetarian, but
lie always had meat wben be could
get it.
"Sometimes," he said, "I shot a
buck, hut I could only eat the liver,
whicb I broiled in the ashes of my
fire. Having no salt, I cannot say
that I enjoyed my food. In passim*.
through the great forests I camped
on the ground, lighting a large lire
to keep off the wild animals. I li.nl
to be very careful to keep tbis go!
throughout tbe night.
'*At early dawn I renewed mj
march, tramping continuously till
about eleven o'clock. Afler that I
used to hunt round, collect wood,
and cook my one daily meal. Then I
slept till sundown.
"Lions and other carolvora do nol
usually attack in the beat of the
day. They are asleep, and it is onh
when night falls that they set out
in search ol pre\."
He met with a good many lions,
but was never attacked bv une. 'flu-
idea that water uili protect one
from lions, he sn\n, is erroneous, for
lions are excellent swimmers.
In the Kftt&nga district he was
bitten by a black mamha snake, and
would probably have died.
Rut he reached a native kraal, and-,
was treated hy a woman, who applied
a decoction of herbs to the wound,
and cured bim. She steadfastly refused to say what herbs sbe used or
how she prepared them.
From Albertville the traveller
made for Lake Albert, ami here hei
had one of his most unpleasant experiences. He came across a powerful tribe, under the command <*f a
very suspicious chief, who, before be
would listen to bim, put bim
through the "ordeal by dirt."
This consists of eating a mouthful
nf enrth picked up from the ground
In the native mind this constitute!
a form of oath, and it is believed
that anyone who undergoes Hn
deal nnd does not speah the trnlh
will he condemned to nu eternal
l diet of dirt.
