Toronto, March 20. ��� Joseph
Martin, K.C,, addressed tbe Canadian Club yesterdav on many subjects relating to the Empire. He
supported with characteristic vigor
the proposal that Canada should
give a subsidy to the Imperial a._oy
and navy, and opposed with the
same directness imperial federation.
"When I remember the terrible
poverty in the old country, a condition of things we do not approach
here, 1 am ashamed of the people
of Canada who are asking the old
land to do anything for us. They
say we want you to tax the food of
these poor unfortunate individuals
who do not know when they gtt up
in the morning where they are going to get the day's meals, and
this money is to go to swell the
pockets ofthe Canadian farmer."
Referring to Sir Hugh Graham
and his reported threat that if Great
Gritain did not do more for Canada
with regard to her defence, Canada
would do something curious.
"I would like to ask Sir Hugh
Graham what right Canada has to
say a word with regard to its defence, It is a great impertinence
on our part to suggest anything,
because we pay nothing. What
would we do with ourselves il we
did cut loose? If I have rightly
watched the result of the poll I
think that interested persons iu
Canada and the United States
would get voters in the Dominion,
with proper application of money,
to be taken into the United States
as a state."
