Control of Canadian Navy
To Rest With Parliament—Sir Wilfrid Lauder's Masterly Speech
on Government Policy
In view of the supreme Importance
of the subject, marking, as it does.
a a new departure in Canadian policy . we devote considerable space
in tins issue to a reproduction of the
chief features of Sir Wilfrid I.auricr's
masterly speech In the house ol commons last week, upon the Introduction of tbe naval hill for the second
Reviewing the situation confronting
Canada. Sir Wilfrid said:
The secretary lor the navy suggests) that tltc Dominions should
contribute yearly to the maintenance
and equipment ol the imperial navy
To this the ministers who represented Canada could not give their assent. They embodied their views in
a state pHpcr. In this it was stated that tbey recognized (lie obligation
of Canada to relieve to a large extent in so far as (he means of the
country would allow, tbe burden
which bad hitherto been on the
shoulders of the English ta\-payer
alone They declared that as Canada increased in wealth and population it would go further in the matter of defence, and that in everything
undertaken in that direction, whatever might be done would be done in
co-operation with the imperial authorities, in accordance with their
right to self-government in this as in
nil other matters. This, Sir Wilfrid said, was eight years ago, and
in that time the government had
never departed from its policy. This
policy, the government affirmed again
at tbe Imperial conference of 1007,
nnd again last year in parliament,
when the question came up for concrete nnd Immediate action.
This policy is now embodied in the
bill now before the house, and by this
policy the government stands or falls.
Hut fall it would not. This policy
is tbe latest link in Ihe long chain
of events which followed from the
principles laid down by reformers of
old times, llaldwin and Lafnntalnc,
and step by step, have brought Canada to the position it now occupies,
that is to say the rank, dignity and
status of a nation within the Hritish
empire.     This policy is the full maturity of the     rights asserted,    the
Obligations    assumed   by     Canada,'
which   inspired   the     imperial  poet,
when after Canada had given a   preference in her markets to the    products of the mother country, to put
in her mouth these words;
"Daughter   ant     I in my mother's:
; house, but mistress In my own,"       j
Proceeding, Sir Wilfrid said that if'
wc adopt   today  this policy,  if     wel
put it in the form in which it is now
' before the country, it is because wc
'lay it down     that    Canada is a nn-
.' lion, but a daughter nation, of England.     Nuch has been the strong and
'persistent    course     of    the    Liberal
party from the time this policy was
I And may I say now, said Sir Wil-
(frid, what has been the policy of the
| Conservative party. I think I am
t not offensive or unjust lo the Con-
J Bcrvatlve party when I say that upon this question their attitude has
been what it is today, divided in
council and divided in action. So
far as this house is concerned our
policy more than once has received
the assent at least the tacit consent, of the members of the Conservative party who sit in this house.
It has been more than once reviewed
and commented upon, but never challenged or dissented from. Outside of
this house it has received the open
commendation of the best and most
experienced minds in the party. I
am bound to say, at the same time,
that it has been censured and severely criticised—by those who within
the party boast nf then imperialism, who carry abroad upon their
foreheads their imperial phylacteries,
who boldly walk into the temple and
there loudly thank the Lord that
they are not like other Hritish subjects, that they give tithes ol everything they possess and Lhat in them
alone is to be found tho true essence of loynlty.
"If I may be permitted to speak
of myself personally, I do not pre
tend to be an imperialist. Neither
do I pretend to be an anti-imperialist, I am a Canadian first, last and
all the time. I am a British subject, by birth, by tradition, hy conviction, by the conviction that under
Hritish institutions my native land
has found a measure of security and
freedom which it could not have
•■itjiid under any other regime. I
want to speak from that double
standpoint, for our policy is an expression of that double opinion. Let
me say at once to those who differ from me, those who pretend to be
imperialists, those who pretend that
the Hritish empire must he tbe first
consideration, that in my judgment
the policy which I have the honor to
place before the bouse at this moment is in better keeping with tbe
true spirit upon which the British
empire was founded, upon which it
exists, and upon which it only can
continue to exist. This is not the
lirst time in history when men who
have conceived what they believe to
he the true idea and felt very
strongly upon it, have made a sad
failure of it when they attempted to
carry it into effect. So it is with
the short-sighted men who believe
that their policy of centralization
will unite the British empire. Mark
the difference. Their policy is centralization; our policy is autonomy.
And let the tale of tlie past tell the
tale of the future.
"Sir, of all the phenomena of history, 1 do not know* any that carries with it a greater lesson than
the existence of the British empire,
composed of young nations scattered
all over the earth, with no force
binding them together, hut attached
to the motherland simply by their
own devotion. If in the days of the
Emperor Augustus, when Home had
reached the summit of her power,
when her dominions extended all over

trie, calorific, luminous radiation of
the sun, it becomes impregnated with
its rays, undergoing in its whole he-'
ing fantastic transformations which
lend it prodigious glory, develop it
by multiplying, ten times, a hundred
times, its volume, lengthening it to
millions and millions of kilometres
hy a kind of phosphorescence which
always is extended away from the
sun and gives rise to the formidable
tails which filled with terror the
souls of our ancestors.
Thenceforth the wanderers' path
takes it away from the ardent center to sink into the deserts of immensity, gradually diminishing in
size, becoming a sort of invisible
bubble, and finally to find again the
night of its aphelion in which lor
years and year It i s lost to the
eyes of astronomers on the earth. It
goes away to a distance of five
thousand million kilometres, into the
ultra Neptunian night, in which its
speed is gradually decreased to less
shan a kilometre per second. The
total duration of its circuit is sixty-
five years.
It Is during its retreat from the
sun that the encounter with the
earth may take place. According to
the calculation ol several astronomers the comet may pass before the
sun about May IA. At that date its
head will he twenty-six million kilometres away from us. Now the
met's tails arc often thirty,
forty or fifty kilometres
length and they are always extended away from the sun.
Hence the earth may he enveloped
in one ol the tails for several hours,
and it is on the effect of this immersion that scientists have been speculating.

ihe Immersion ol the earth in the
Immense gaseous appendix ol the
cornetj lie asks.
The poisoning of humanity by deleterious gaM's is improbable. Doubtless if (be oxygen ol the atmosphere
combined with tbe hydrogen ot the
comet's tail it would mean universal
death with short shift. It, nn the
contrary,, there resulted a diminution
in Ibe supply of nitrogen the brain of
every one ol us would experience an
unexpected sensation of physical ae-
ti\ity am! the human race would
come to a sudden end in a paroxysm
of joy, universal delirium nnd madness; at bottom, probably, overjoyed
at its fnte. Carbonic oxide, on tb
contrary, would cause universal pol
soiling of the lungs. Spectral
analysis has not yet shown us what
are the chief elements in the tail of
the COlDOt. Hydro-carbonic combinations of nitrogen are frequent.
Prom photographs and analyses
made last year at my Juvlsy observatory by Messrs. Quenisset de la
Hniime-I'luvinel and Halitet ot the
Morehouse, comet electricity seems
(o play an important part in the
strange dislocations observed. There
exists there a formidable electrostatic .Mil, and eleetro-magnetic forces
have added their Influence to the
repulsive force of the sun.
Anxious minds
I niixious minus have, however, m
- reason to he tormented—uselessly,
too—hy these prognostications.
Comet tails, it is true, are immense,
hut tbey arc so light, so ratified,
lhat the terrestrial atmosphere is
like lead in comparison. Kven were
Jour globe completely plunged into
such a tail we would, without
doubt, be saved from a cataclysm hy

Cranbrook is to be commended for
its endeavors to shut out the traveling real estate agents, who infest
Ihe country, and too often misrepresent the property they are selling. The local agent gets the worst

imposing of a %IW tax on these men
seems reasonable.

Here is a story
by the   Nebraska
A   few days sine*
overhauling    some
from life printed
City Daily News:
■ some men    wore
household goods
that had been stored a long time, in
fact such a long time that the identity uf the owner or owners liml been
lost. They were tossing the things
about in a careless manner until
when throwing a small box aside if
came open and oul rolled a pair o(
baby's shoes followed by some tiny
ribbons and wearing apparel. The
men all stopped work and looked at
the package in silence, due man
quietly stooped down and picked
them up and one by one restored the
articles to the box and again fastened it. It called to his mind a little
pair of baby shoes which were safely
tucked away in a drawer at home,
he and his wife had placed there
many years ago. While doing this u
silent tear trickled down his cheek
as he thought of the missing one and
what perhaps those pair of little
shoes und huhy relics meant to ihe
mother and father who had packed
them away so tenderly nnd treasured
them so highly It might have been
those worn by an absent daughter or
son, who had perhaps gone away,
done well or had and forgotten the
old folks and more especially (Jic
mother, while the mother or fathci
had never for a minute banished tbem
from their minds. It might have been
all of the remembrance of an erring
son or daughter. They were dear to
their parents and this father's heart
turned to the absent ones, as bethought of his own and packed them
away again."

On March 27th, 1909, Mr..!. D. Anderson, li. C. Land Surveyor, wrote
us wit li reference to the Central Park property ns follows:
The more I sir of this pnrticnlar block the mop highly I think of it. There
is no possible doubt but this is very high grade fruit hind, nml it is n pity that
settlers nre not rdrendy uu it. It is so easy to clear, nnd tbe hind is the characteristic high grade fruit laud of this district, that is stir,- t,» bo in time a very
profitable tract. It compares very favorably with the Ddnkhobors' laud nt
Waterloo nud the MoKenzio hind at Champion Creek below Waterloo, held at
$50 tu $1 "di mi acre.
Never before have B. C. Fruit Lands been offered at suchridiculocs
prices. Price is no object. These lands MUST BE SCLD within 30

ol the province is a very Important
publication anil should liml its way

specially worthy of notice. In particular, we think, that attention

lu the following from the report of
Inspector Geo. II. Deanc:

that, with very feu exceptions, little

time tu    make any attempt at lieau-

In reference to the (orcgoing allusions to manual training in the public schools, it is to bo noted lhat
I here is now before the legislature a
government measure to provide for
Ihe extension of this .system tu public schools throughout the province.
A clause in the bill in question, "All;	
Act tu    Amend    the   Public   Schools   den,
Act, 1005," which reads as follows:
"30b. To the municipal corporation
of any municipality whose hoard of
school trustees shall provide suitable
accommodation, in connect ion with
the school or schools under its jurisdiction, fur instructiuii in manual
training there shall he granted a
sum not less than three-fourths of
(he total initial amount expended
for the necessary benches, tools, material and other equipment required."
ur advantage in the house.'
Provision is also made in the same
amending act for the establishment
of night schools, as set forth in the
following clauses;
"Ilia. Where it appears that in
any school district there arc twenty
ur more persons of the age ol four-
tecn years and upwards desirous of
obtaining instruction in the ordinary
branches of an English education,
the hoard of school trustees may establish, under regulations issued by
the council uf public instruction, a
nlghl school ur night schools fur
their benefit,
"111b. Every teacher employed ip
any such night school shall bold a
Provincial Certificate, ur other certificate acceptable to the council of
public instruction.
'llic. The entire cost uf providing suitable school rooms, lire, light
and other requisites shall be defrayed
liy the hoard ol school trustees, but
;i proportion of theeosl of paying an
adequate teaching staff, ranging from
two-fifths ot such cost in the rast
Wc reproduce elsewhere in this issue portions ot Sir Wilfrid's masterly speech and we very much regret
that space limitations prevent its
appearance ia full. The subject is
one of such vital import to Canada
that we should have liked to have
given our readers full reports of the
speeches of the leaders, on both
ides of the house. Mr. Bor-
tlto titular leader ol
the Conservative opposi
tion, has again changed his attitude
in this connection. After months ol
hesitancy and shifting on the great
issue now before the country, com
polled evidently hy tbe exigencies of
pressure from within the party, Mr
Borden finally threw overboard atl
his previously declared convictions,
and cast in bis lot with the ultra-
Imperialists, who have been advocating a direct contribution as a t<
porary expedient to meet the alleged
crisis in respect to the maintenance
ot British supremacy on the sea. lie
proposed an amendment advocaGi u,
the gift in cash to Great Britain o*
an amount sufficient to construct
two Dreadnoughts, or about $20,000,-
000, leaving the permanent solution
of the question of Canada's defence
as a part of the empire to be dealt
wilh later alter mature consideration. At the same time he did not
n.gkc U clear just what his attitude
was on the proposal to construct a
Canadian navy, although it could be
inferred from his speech that, in addition to the gilt of twenty millions,
he proposed that the country should
also commit itself to the additional
expenditure involved in the building
of a Canadian fleet.
Inspector Deane • ills attention ti
another matter of wry coniidcrabl
Importance.    He points out that:
"Nu manual training center has a:
yet been established in tins inspector

salary. \o section uf the province
is in greater need of extension alonj
technical lines than  the Kootenay a '
On the subject referred to in tin
last quoted paragraph from Inspect.:
Dcane'a report, Mr. Many Bunnell,
Inspector of manual training, has
these appropriate comments to offer;
"There are now about 2,000 hoys

branch uf study, which is most popular with fully *is per cent of the
bovs. Also very good reports are
heard from many parents ol the

use the words uf Dr. W. .[. Uohert-
son: "Is it worth while?" Wherever
manual traininc has been introduced
under capable teachers, it has keen
proved to he worth while, lias it
proved worth while in British Columbia? New Westminster, Vancouver nml Victoria say "Yes »
What do some uf ihe ..tint cities
say? "We see the good of the instruction and would like our children
to have it, but the lirst year's expenses are in., great." Manual

than four-fifths in the case of rural
school districts, and in each instance
as the council of public instruction
may determine, shall tn- paid monthly Irom the provincial treasury to

It cannot hut he satisfactory to
the general public of British Columbia lo note the growing attention
given to educational mat ten, in this
province and. on the whole, with a
marked degree of success. In many
respects British Columbia's public
school system is superior to that of
any other province of the Dominion
ml, we think we may fairly say, it
appears to be the aim of those in
authority to maintain this enviable
rd. We drew attention last
week to the provision now lieing
made for the medical inspection of
schools, and elsewhere in this issue
will be found the text of the principal clauses in the act dealing with
this subject. In devoting so muih
space to this subject, we think wo
have abundant justification in Its
supreme impurtane*..
Tlie announcement recently made tn
parliament by lion. fi. P. Graham,
minister of railways and canals,
that it was tbe intention of the
Dominion government to begin this
sprim; tbe work of construction of
the Hudson Bay railway, will be welcomed throughout Western Canada.
This is another vast public undertaking, in line with other similar enterprises that have characterized the
Liberal administration at Ottawa,
imi which have all been carried out
"i a quiet, businesslike manner.
Whilst it is too early yet to slate
definitely whether N'els r Churchill wilt Ik* the terminus of this new
railway, we now have tbe assurance
that the lirst 2*i« mild of tbe Mud-
son Hay railway, Irom the Phk Mission to Split l.nke. will be under
construction this year, nml hy the
time the railway Is built to Split
Lake a decision as tu the terminus
will have been reached and the construction ot the remaining 150 miles,
if .Nelson lie picked upon, or 217
miles if Churchill lie chosen, can
then be proceeded with without tie-
George S. Munroe, engineer on tbe
work train that was wr,rtked at
Whoop-Up last Monday week, and
who sustained serious injuries in the
wret-k, succumbed thereto last Saturday. The deceased was a former
resident of Cranbrook and a member
of the local Masonic organizations
As a mark ol respect several members of Cranbrook preceptory journeyed to Lethbridge on Sunday U

Knights Andrew McCowan, Topham,

Beale, K. Moore, F. B. Miles, Dr
Bell, McN'abb and W. 11. Wilson.
The funeral was held with Masonic
honors on Monday afternoon. About
a hundred of the local brother Masons held an impressive funeral service in the lodge room and in company with the Knight Templars of
Cranhrook, marched in procession
from there to the residence on Baroness road.
The Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, in company with the Masonic lodges, accompanied the body
to the grave.
The funeral service at the residence
was conducted by Rev. W. W. Bry-

when thirty legions were moving all
the time from one end of the empire
to the other to keep in subjection
the rebellious races, if someone had
said to the strong Roman statesmen
that the time will come when the
small island of Britain, now the most
distant of all Roman possessions,
will itself establish an empire which
will extend lo the confines of tho
earth, but by a new principle invented by her people, namely, the
consent nf the governed, this great
Roman statesman would have laughed at the idea. If we go no further
back in history than the lirst year of
the late -Queen, when Upper and Lower Canada were in the throes ol a
rebellion, if someone had said, even
then, that these two provinces were

lu saying this I have shocked the

from that date that the British em

down the principle of responsible

ner wns here last (.ill, and, lot, will
pardon me if 1 retail io tbe attention
ol ihe honorable gentlemen opposite,
what were the opinions bfl express, d
then upon this question.
Sir Wilfrid I hen read at RORIO
length from the speech of Lord Milne r m Vancouver, in winch he   mid
thai he believed the proper policy lo
pursue was the policy of huil.liiii a
local navy, rather than a policy, if
contribution. In speeches in Toron*
to and elsewhere he had expressed
similar views
Now, continued Sir Wilfrid, 1
think I can safely conclude that the
true policy which should be followed
is not that of a contribution, but
that of the development of our naval
strength, as we contemplate doing
under this bill
This point having l.een settled, 1
come now to another which has been
made a aource of strong objection
against us. Ihal is to say. who
should have control of our navy'1
t pou ibis point 1 Stated tbe other
day lhat the parliament of Canada
would have control of Ihe navy, and
wo-1.| declare when it should or
should not ro to war Cpon thli
question we have Ikvii assail.it right
nnd left, assailed in Quebec, and assailed in Ontario In Quebec, because il,ere it is said Ibat  under no
Ircamstances   should  Canada taVe
part  in any of   the wars of Hnlaii
In Ontario,  because it    is said thai
diliou which exists in Great Ijiituiu I
with the conditions which prevail in
the colonies. Kngland is one of a
circle of four or five European iia-l
turns which are always watching one
another, Sho has no public works
to carry on, and can devote her re-
Oahada'80Urcos t,° armamontB, But in the
()t colonies the chief consideration is
m public works to develop the resources of the country. Gentlemen
opposite should avoid this mistake.
[England made this mistake In the
eighteenth century, when she wanted
to force the American colonies to
contribute Io her armament by taxation. The American people protested, and at last severed the tie
which bound them to the mother
There is no danger today that
Kngland woi Id impose taxation without representation, or that wc would
go into rebellion, but I cite this because there are men here who have
learned nothing, and, like the Bourbons, have forgotten nothing, and do
not appreciate the difference in tho
conditions existing in Kngland and
the colonies.
There has been objection Irom
Quebec because the bill provides that
in emergency the government may
call out the fleet, and put it at the
disposal of the imperial authorities.
It is provided that when this is
done, parliament, if not in session,
shall meet within fifteen days. Great
objection has been taken in Quebec
because this is authority for the
government to send out the fleet before summoning parliament, and it is
held that parliament should speak
first. Well, the answer is obvious.
Conditions may be such that the
government may be forced to take
immediate action and exhaust all our
resources to rescue a part ot the
country which may be threatened.
British Columbia, for instance,
might be threatened with attack
from the Orient, though there is no
danger of that until Japan should
cease to be an ally of Britain, and
Russia recover -her strength. But
all things change, and il wc have to
wait until parliament meets to act
in conjunction with the British fleet,
results may he disastrous. Circumstances may be such as to force us
to do what Japan did—strike the
enemy before the enemy strikes us.
When parliament meets, after fifteen
days, it can approve or disapprove.
In tbe composition of tbe fleet we
have not had the good luck to satisfy the opposition. It has been said
that wc should have accepted the
admiralty suggestion, and have put
our fleet unit ou the Pacific. Is
there a mau who will blame us because we would not agree? We have
a large Atlantic seaboard, and must
divide our force between tbe two
oceans. Then we are asked why did
you consent to such an insignificant
navy as the one you propose? Well,
we considered it prudent. Two
plans were proposed. One was for a
fleet of seven and the other for a
fleet of eleven ships. The seven were
to have been three Bristols and four
destroyers. The eleven were to have
been four Bristols, one Board icea
and six destroyers. Because we
have to protect the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, and so divide our fleet,
we thought it better to have eleven
than seven ships. In this wc acted
on the advice of tlie admiralty.
We are blame d that we are not
to have an armored vessel of the
Dreadnought type. Perhaps 1 can
cite an authority which will satisfy
the opposition. 1 could uot give a
more competent authority than Sir
Charles Beresford, who is as good a
seaman as   there is in    the    British
land is attacked wc are liable to attack, though 1 do not say wc shall
always be attacked; nor do I aa
that we shall take part in all the
wars of Kngland. In that matter
we will have to be guided by cir-
cumstances, and upon which the Canadian parliament will have to pi
bounce according to— (Conflicting
cries of "(>h, oh," and "Hear,
bear.") J
Can it be, said Sir Wilfrid, that navy and as everyone knows be has
condemned this plan of Dreadnoughts
being built by the colonies. It is

Sir Wilfrid then referred to the
threatened war between Kngland and
Hie United States in 1st,I over the
boarding ol the San Jacinto and the
taking off of Mason and Sildell, two
I. legates of the Southern Confederal v The United Slates gave way
and war was averted, but if war had [ miller
gone on Canada would have been im- year to
mediately drawn into it, as it would these ships in this country, and then
have been her duly to help Kngland I probably four years to complete the

to give more than an approximate

|| The Paper that is Read by the People
that Kngland is increasing her navy
lor purposes ol attack. Tbe fact is
that all the nations ol Kurope are al
present arming, but I do not believe
that any ol these nations is arming
with the intention ol attaching any
ol its neighbors, but all are arming
because they are afraid they will lie
attacked. I was much struck by
the statement ol the leadrr of tlie
opposition, that if war came il
would come within three or four
years, (iermany commenced to build
a fleet In 11)00, hut, as my honorable
iriend rightly said, no European nation commencing as (iermany did,
with nothing, can create a fleet in
less than 15 or Un years. If that be
so, it is not to be expeeteil that
(Iermany will be in a position to
attack Kngland in three or four
years. In 1912 the displacement of
the British navy will lie 2,000.000
tons, and that of (Iermany, B90,000,
r niter these circumstances danger is
not to be apprehended. Moreover,
Britain and (iermany have been fast
friends so far back as contemporary
history goes. Then, too, democracy
is coming to tbe front in all countries, and democracy is opposed to
war, because it is well known that
war falls upon the masses. War
may come, 1 don't say it will not,
hut I was Impressed hy (tie statement oi Mr. Borden thai England
bad subsidized the nations of Europe
time and again to enable them to defend their liberty, or their autonomy, against foreign aggression She
was able to do so because of all
Kurope, Kngland is tbe nation which
has spent the least upon armaments.
She eitended ber trade and developed
her resources, and in lime of war
she was able to assist oilier nations
wilh her money, which, as we know,
is the nerve and sinew ol war. Napoleon, In a fit o| anger, called Kngland "a nation of shopkeepers.*' For
Canada, my country, I would desire
ho better title than also to le called
"a nation of shopkeepers." and to be
able to supply the sinews ol war.
I have endeavored lo meet the arguments ol those who say that our
policy is wanting in the duty we
owe to Kngland as part ol the empire. But there are also on the
other side ol the house those who
arraign our policy, because, ns they
say, we sacrificed hy it the Interests
of our native land for the interests
ol the empire. There arc the two
extremes sitting cheek by jowl, blowing hot and cold. 1 have endeavored to deal with those who blow hot
.et me try a word with those who
blow cold. Need 1 say that this applies chiefly to Mr. K. I) Monk, and
those who think with htm upon this
question. The policy which they
have taken in Quebec Is that our
attitude is at present unnecessary, |
Is a surprise upon the country, Hint
we never had a mandate to carry it
on. Have these men been asleep for
eight years? Are they Hip Van
enthusiasm to assist her to sweep
over this country and all British
countries. It is true (iermany is
Sir Wil-rid then quoted the paper
presented to tbe imperial conference
of 1902, in which Canada agreed to
take her share in Imperial detence,
military and naval, in accordance
wilb her resources. lie continued:
This paper has been More Canada
for eight years. Canada has progressed since 1802. The population
has risen from 6,400,000 to about
7,400,000; the revenue from $68,000,-
(lull to at least $100,0)10,(1011 We,
therefore, think the time has come,
as was stated in 1W2, when we
should take a step forward, ami this
is what we are doing. But, sir,
that is not all. Tbey took another
position, that the naval service is
absolutely unnecessary. Why do we
ask parliament to vote (or this
naval service? it is simply because
this Is a necessity of our position,
and the status we have reached as a
nation. |)o these gentlemen forget
the growth of the revenue and population ol Canada'' l>o tbey forget
thai there are growing up mi the
Pacific coast cities fust approaching
in Strength and iii wealth the cities
of the east? Do they forget that Wt
are going to build a railway to tbe
Hudson Bay; that we have gold
mines under the Arctic Circle? Do
they forget that Canada is expanding
like a young giant? Are we to be
told that under such circumstances
we do not requite a naval servicer
Why, sir. you might just as well tell
the people of .Montreal, with their
population     ol     half a million, that
I hey do not need any police protection.
But there is something more. The
position is taken by gentlemen on
Ihe other side of the house, speaking
in the province ol Quebec, that we
are uot to risk one man or one dot
tar for the preservation of British
supremacy on the high sens. 1 have
only to say to this that this service
will not be compulsory. No one
ihe other side ol the house, no one in
any pui of the country, will be
bound to serve in this navy of ours
II will he the free will of any one
who wishes to risk his life for his
King. Those who object will not
have to lift a finger If that fleet is
called out. Their part will be simply lo enjoy the security, the ease,
the comfort gained for them hy the
sacrifice of other and better men. We
nre (old that we should not risk one
dfillnr for such a purpose as this.
Sir, If It be the will and wish ol
parliament that this navy ol ours
should engage in war, whose liberty
will lie affected hy It? whose right
jeopardized? This Is a conatttutlon-
al country, and the majority      have
the right to speak and to dispose,
and it is the part ol the minority to
agree and to accept. There is no
question in this country that any
man's liberty will be interfered with,
nor his rights endangered.
There will be Canadians of French
descent in that fleet, and if, as (tod
forbid, this fleet should ever engage in war, my hope is—nay, my
certainty is—that these men will
light for the King ol Knglaml as
their ancestors fought against the
King of Kngland. Our ancestors repelled assault after assault, when in
17711 they kept at bay lor three lung
months at the Hock ol Quebec the
flower ol the British army and navy.
Later, on the same rock ot Quebec,
j they (ought for the British crown

'still later on, at fhatcauguay, they
I fought to keep the flag of Kngland
floating over their homes. When 1
review tho long conflicts between the
French and the Knglish, I follow the
events without any sense of shame or
humiliation, for history attests that
my ancestors fought with a prowess
equal to that ol their opponents
Tbey lost the battle, hut they did
not lose their independence, their
liberty, their rights and privileges,
and today the sun does not set bis
light upon any people upon the laee
of the earth enjoying more llterty

Alter quoting Irom speeches by
l.nfontaine and Baldwin hearing on
tire development ol constitutional
liberty in Canada, Sir Wilfrid said:

Vernon city has recently completed
the installation ol a sewerage system, nud tbe experience of that city
may he of interest locally. The en-
gipecring Aork in this connection
was entrusted to Messrs. Gait and
Smith, consulting engineers, and under their supervision tbe whole undertaking was completed within the
original estimate ol Jfifi.liOO. The
Vernon city council placed on record
The announcement made to parliament last week hy the Hon. G. P.
Graham, the minister of railways,
that tbe construction ol the Hudson
Hay railway will begin next season,
has been received with enormous satisfaction in Western Canada, as it
makes certain tlie completion nf the
line within the next lew years and
the culmination of a project which
has excited the enthusiastic support
of the west since it was first mooted,
nearly thirty years ago.
The terminals of the road at Hudson Hay have not yet lieen decided
upon. It has been assumed lor years
hack that the mad would run to
Port Churchill, but the surveys carried on by the Dominion government during tho last two or three
years under the able direction of
• lohn Armstrong have created some-
I thing more than a presumption in
I favor of Port Nelson, as the bettor
I point for locating the terminals ol
the railway. The route to that
point is sixty-seven miles shorter
with better grades and less difficulty
in construction, and what is still
more important, the port itsell is
said to he larger, easier ul access,
and is free ol ice for a much longer
[icriod ol the year.
Mr. Armstrong in his report to the
government, after giving such facts
Bboul the two harbors as were secured hy the partial surveys, suggested
that a complete survey ol the port
of Nilsoti should be made before the
final decision was reached as to the
point where the road is to run. This,
Mr. Graham announced to parliament, is to be done. An expedition
is to he sent to Hudson Hay by ship
which will go into both ol these
harbors from the outside und will
make a special examination nl the
entrances to the harbors and their
suitability lor the purposes tbe
builders ol the road have in vlpw.
This delay in making choice ol n
haebor, however, wilt not prevent the
government Irom entering upon the
Immediate construction of the road,
as the route to Port Churchill and
Port Nelson is identical for the first
one hundred and fifty miles, starling
from the Pas, whleb will be the he-
ginning ol the new line. One ol tbe
Drst tasks will he tbe building of a
great bridge across the Saskatchewan river.
Itii iippreciation   of the services
Messrs. Gait and Smith in the
lowing resolution:
"Moved by Aid. Husband and
onded by Aid. Costerton, That
council having received the llnal report II Messrs. Gait anil Smith, on
the construction of the sewerage
system, wish to place on record their
appreciation of the satisfactory and
cordial relations which ban- existed
liet ween t he council and Messrs.
Gait and Smith, and also their representative, Mr. Haddln, and that
the clerk be instructed to write to
them 1o this effect,     Carried."
To capture and keep tin- Hritish

dltlons in Hritain so that they may

visit Hritain and study tbe conditions, and thus lit themselves to provide the fruit that the public demand. The suggestion has home

Perhaps   the   greatest   engineering .
task in history will be faced by   Sir !
Robert Perks,    M.P.,   when he Bets
out    for    Canada early in the New ■
Year,    says a    London,    Kng.,   ex-
Change.     The    project is   tbe great J
Georgian Hay ship canal, a waterway )
which is   to stretch    Irom Georgian
Hay, Lake Huron, to the River   St.
Lawrence, and is destined to provide
the shortest and cheapest route   for
the carriage of   grain from the   far;
west    to the  ports for ocean-going
Steamers on the St. Lawrence.
Sir Robert is leaving political and
other activities to throw himself Into
this great scheme.    There are   some '
projects so   colossal that  the   mind j
can scarcely grasp them: this is one.
For UO miles this great canal    will;
wend its way across the land.      To
gain some idea of the undertaking it
is    necessary   to imagine a    might]]
ditch, dug all the   way Irom Loudon
to Glasgow.
Many thousands ol men will labor
at the work. More than 20,000 of
them, split up into divisions and
squads, will dig and drill and work
trenching and delving machines for
close upon ten years before the task
Is over.
The cost will approach £30,000,000,
but the   waterway   has been planned
lor generations, and the water power'
available at dam1' and lakes will produce 1,000,000 horse power.
The beet is one of the most valuable of cultivated plants. The red
garden varieties furnish savory table
vegetables, the large torage beets
form an excellent food for eat Me,
and the sugar bee' is one id the principal sources of sugar and alcohol
The Usefulness of this valuable root
has now been increased hy the production ol nn edible flour from sugar
beets. The desiccation ol sliced
sugar beets (Zuckcrschtiitzcl) is already practiced in Germany on a
very extensive scale, but the pn duel
is employed exclusively as fodder lor
cattle. In Belgium, however, a meat
is now made from dried beets which,
according to a paper read before tbe
recent chemical congress in London,
is entirely Iree Irom Ibe distinctive
flavor of the beet and is suitable lor
use in making cakes, puddings, and
Qastry. As it contains about itf per
cent of sugar, it can often he substituted, with advantage, for sugar,
in somewhat larger quantities. The
processes of desiccation and grinding
not only cost less than the extra*
tion of sugar, hut preserve all the
sugar of the beet, part of which is
rejected in the form of molasses,
the process of sugar making.

decision reached at Ibe convention
held in Victoria last week. President II. Hnekle, in his opening ad

waning, tbe mem Iter ship having fallen to 87. Complete re-organl/ation
was necessary. Lively discission
billowed mi the aflairs of the association, during which W. E. Scott, deputy minister ol agriculture, told ol
arrangements for a fruit growers'
convention at Kumloops in April, at
which the matter of government co-

the singular observations ol the day.
It has been maintained that it was
n ancient custom among the Romans during the Lupcrcalla, celebrated* in the month of February, for the
boys and men to draw the names of
their future wives in honor of their
goddess, l-'ebruale Juno, and that
the Christian clergy finding it absolutely impossible to abolish this
heathen practice changed it to a religious ceremony by writing on the
slips of paper instead of the names
of women those of particular saints
whom they were to follow and imitate during the year.
In England, Scotland. France and
some other parts of the continent it
was formerly the custom of the
young people to meet, write each
other's or some of the acquaintances'
names on a slip of paper, which were
thrown into a box from which they
wen- drawn, tbe men taking the
nirls' nanus and vice versa. The
person thus drawing became one's
valentine and for a whole year was
bound to devote himself to the one
who drew him Sometimes, of
course, this led to real engagements
between ihe parties, and often tricks
were played in such a way that the
slips of paper fell into the hands
they were meant for. During the
fifteenth century married people could
be chosen as well as those who were
not married, and often very valuable
presents we(e exchanged.

There are so many so-called "re-

often at a loss what to try. piles
are caused by distension of the

Buk gave me ease and brought about
ultimate cure."
Mrs. S Cooke, M.h Pacific Ave.,
Winnipeg, says: "A month ago I was
ired by Zam-Buk of a bad attack of
bleeding piles, to which I had been
subject for a long time."
Mr. William Kenty, of Upper Nine
Mile River, Hants Co., N. S., says:
"1 suffered terribly from piles! The
pain from these was at times almost
unbearable. I tried various ointments bul everything failed to do me
the slightest good. I was tired of
trying various remedies, when I
heard of Zam-Buk. but thought, as a
las: resource, I would give this balm
a trial. I procured a supply and
commenced with the treatment. In a
very short time Zam-Buk effected
what all the other ointments and
medicines had failed to do—a complete cure."
Wherever there is inflammation or
ulceration, there Zam-Buk should be
applied. It heals ulcers, abscesses,
'• lering sores, cold tracks, scalp
lores, cuts, burns, scalds, bruises
and all irritated, inflamed or diseased conditions of the skin and subja-

The figures given in this article
may seem to some to be too largo
or exaggerated, bul if tho reader
will Just cut them In two, he Will
have much difficulty in finding nny
other occupation that one can engage In that will clve such returns
for  the  i \   Invested,   as   the  sum"
returns are yearly to be reallted by
the Intelligent fruit growor who   is
wide awake and     makes the best ol
ail things.
Having eonsidered the gross earnings nl the orchard, let us look for
a while at the expense. These, under nny circumstances should not
exceed :i"> per cent ol the gross earnings to the man who has kept his
orchard clean and up-to-date. For
Instance, say:
Apple boxes    per 1000   or 10c. each
Picking, per box   Cc. each
Packing, per box  6c. each
Wrapping paper, labels, nailing and loading on car,
per box  4c.
We have now 25Jc. per box left lor
pruning, spraying, thinning and cultivation, and 1- know it can he done
for less.
The following varieties grow to
perfection and can lie recommended
for this district; Jonathan Macintosh lied, Wagner, Home Beauties,
0rimes' Golden, Northern Spy, Wine-
saps, Spit/enhergs, fox's Orange
Pippin, Blenheim orange. All these
being high-grade apples, need no
further comment.
Pears do excellently in this district and pay per acre equally as
well as apples, ltnrtlett and Flemish Beauties grow to perfection and
yield in enormous quantities. The
same can be said of plums, only
they do not pay so well per acre as
apples nnd pears. The following
varieties do splendidly in this district: Italian Prune, Yellow Egg,
Illiie Damson, Hurbank and several
otln-rs that might he mentioned also.
The market is unlimited, Creston
district being located on the Crows
Nest Pass branch of tbe Canadian
Pacific railway, closely adjoining tbe
vasl eohl fields ol Western Canada,
which are developing so rapidly; anil
the increasing population consume
enormous quantities of fruit and
vegetables. Then again our next
open door is the vast Western Plains,
where for a stretch_ ol some two
thousand miles, fruit cannot be successfully grown. Resides these,
Mure are Great Britain, Germany,
Prance and Australia, which are nil
looking for high grade apples, such
as grown in our famous Creston va1-
As to the climate, it can be said
that it Is equalled by lew and surpassed hy none, as we have nn extremes of heat or cold, the winten
being mild and plensant. There Is a
good rainfall, which renders irrigation unnecessary, the average yearly
rainfall being about it Inches; and
this amount, properly stored nnd
cared lor, is nmptv for the cultivation of fruit.
Now lust, but not least. What
other occupation offers such health,
[happiness and long life?
James Comptnn.
Bditor The Herald:
The diversity of temperature by i
day and hy night in this district has'
been recently the subject ol remark
in an eastern poultry journal, as ol-!
fcriiig special difficulty in the rearing
of young stock and obtaining profit-j
able results in egg production. While
it must he admitted that there Is a
very great diversity in temperature
in the twenty-four hours, It has only j
been during the first season in the
district that 1 found it to cause!
any '.rouble in my (lock and 1 would
like to speak of the precautions I
have found sufficient to offset any
effects. There are only two seasons ol the year when this condition
seems to have any bml effect providing a fairly good system of housing
Is practical for the fowls. The lirst
is in the spring, just ns and alter
the snow is leaving. At this time,
as we all know, we get some very
warm days, hat the nights are often
nearly or quite down to zero hy
encly morning. At such times the
poultry man in closing houses at
night finds it so warm and close he
Concludes he should leave a window
or door or both open, the result of
the severe cooling off consequent on
this are swollen heads and all
the symptoms of severe colds in the
morning, which in a day nr two become incipient roup, nnd il this
treatment is persisted in at last de
velops into confirmed roup, the dread
of all experienced poultrymen; and
even it it does not get to this advanced stage, at the very season of
the year when one needs strongly
fertile eggs (for this is when the
eggs are dropped which should produce next season's layers), infertile
eggs, weak germs and anemic chicks
ure produced; for even if the trouble
is quickly checked the effects will
be seen lor a long time on the hatch-
ability of the eggs and the quality
ol the chicks produced therefrom. In
fact I quite agree with Prof. Gilbert,
in a recent letter to Canada Poultry
Review, when he says he does not
think a bird, even if recovered from
roup, is ever fit to breed from. As
a precaution to overcome this
trouble I would advise partial closing of the houses at the usual time
and a second visit at soy 8 or 9
o'clock in the evening nnd close down
as for winter weather. With me
this seems to Im* enough to fit the
The other season in which I have
found trouble nnd the only one that
has caused me any loss is in the fall.
Sty August 20 on to October, when
most people    still have their young
birds in summer coops. Naturally
at this season the coops are more or
less crowded by the growth of the
stock, and even il not, as the nights
are pretty cold, the birds sitting on
the ground are able to crowd together and get sweaty and overheated,
then lieing let out catty in the morning to feed—usually at this season ol
the year an hour or two before old
Sol shows up—they sit about and
shiver and cool down rapidly and
soon have swollen heads, discharges
from the eyes, etc., and finally roup.
and roup contracted in tin- fall means
a hard proposition for tbe ablest
"chicken Send."
To obviate this get young stock into winter quarters early—August IS
anyway—and on the roosts where
they cannot hunch together. Open
the house at feeling time in the
morning, hut do not let birds out,
feed inside and keep them there till
sunrise anyway, and everything will
lie well.
In the winter this difference of
temperature docs no harm if birds
have plenty of fresh air in the day
time, accompanied by lots of exercise in searching for their food, and
have fairly decent roosting quarters,
free from any draughts nt night
with cotton Instead ot glass (or
light, and to provide sufficient fresh
nir lor their needs, and in summer
Cool nights nre ns acceptable to
