Premier of British   Columbia   Contented Wiith Steps Taken to
Protect the Pacific.
OTTAWA, Nov. 18.--Sir Richard
McBride was here yesterday on his
way home from England. While declining to say anything as to the new
plans for naval defence on the Pacific Coast he stated that he had discussed the subject with the government here and also with the British
Admiralty, and he was perfectly satisfied that adequate steps would be
taken to protect British interests on
the Pacillc.
Asked as to reports of his coming
to Ottawa at an early date as a member ot the government, he said there
was no foundation for such a report
at all. While in England he had given attention to financial and other
business for British Columbia and
had accomplished all that he went
over for. The financial affair, of the
province were in excellent condition
��� and business was quite as good as
could be expaotctd with the war.
The province was standing up well
under the strain.
Referring to the war and tha situation in the old land, Sir Richard
added that Canadians could not pos-
bihly appreciate too mu-h the seriousness of the war. We must all realize
that this is a life and death struggle
for Canada aa a part of the Empire.
There should be no hesitancy in putting our whole strength into it so
tbat the British arms may be victorious. The action of th_ Overseas

Germans    Ignored    Those    of    The
Hague  By  Sowing Mines  in
the North Sea.
LONDON, Nov. 19.���In the House
of Commons yesterday Mr. Asquith
announced that the government had
been compelled to declare the whole
of the North Sea to be In the military area.
All subjects of the enemy found
on neutral vessels, would be liable
to detention as prisoners of war.
Mr. Asquith also announced that
oil and copper would bo declared
contraband of war.
Referring to mines, the Premier
said that the Germans had resorted
to indiscriminate mine-laying in tlie
North Sea without regard to peaceful
shipping and without warning. The
purpose clearly was the furtherance
of no definite military operations,
but to endanger llritish trade. These
mines unquestionably had been laid
by fishing vessels disguised as neutral, the premier said. These mines
were not so constructed as to become
harmless when loosed from their
mljcrings, neither were they kept
under observation. No steps had
"been taken to warn peaceful shipping of this danger. Consequently
the terms of The Hague convention
of 1007 have been violated.
After a number or neutral fishing
and merchant vessels and many lives
have been destroyed by these mines.
Mr. Asquith said, the government
had been forced to adopt coii"i**r
measures to cope with this German policy of mine-laying combined
with   submarine  activities.

jury recently against H. P. Murphy.

LONDON,     Nov.   18.���Mr.  Lloyd-
George, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
in  presenting  his    financial    statement in the House of Commons yesterday  afternoon,  said that he  was
making   proposals  not     merely     to
meet  the  increased   expenditure   up
to the end of March  next,    but to
meet also the deficiency in the revenue.    The total sum for which provision had been made already, 535,-
j 000,000   pounds,     covered   ordinary
'and war expenditure.    The addltion-
| al money which  had to    be    found
I was   339,571,000   pounds.     A     full
lyear of the war would cost 450,000.-
j 000 pounds.
I     He proposed that the income tax
should  be   doubled,     but  that   this
lyear it would only be collected    in
i respect  of one-third  of income.  He
announced an extra  duty of    three
} pence  per -pound  on   tea,    and  one-
I half penny on half pints of beer. It
was  necessary,  continued  the Chancellor, to borrow 230,321,000 pounds
to carry the country- through to the
!end of tlie fiscal year.    It was also
desirable   to   have     some     surplus,
hence,  he  proposed   a  loan  of  350,-
000,000  pounds  at     thfee  and  one-
half 'Per cent., the issue price to be
at  95, redeemable at  par on  March
131,     1928.    One     hundred    million
i pounds had already been offered to
the government.
Tea and Beer Tax.
The tea duty, he said, would produce 950,000 pounds this year and
3,200,000 pounds next year. The
beer duty would yield two million
pounds this year and 17,000,000
pounds in the year following. The
new taxation this year would bring
5,500,000 pounds, and suspension of
the sinking fund would give 2,750,-
000 pounds.
Mr. Lloyd-George declared that
the income of the country at present
was 2,300,000,000 pounds, whereas
during the Naponeonic war it was
250,000,000 pounds. If. he added,
we rose to the heroic level of our
ancestors we should now be raising
almost  700,000,000   pounds.
The war. he said, might be long
or short, but "we are fighting on
enemy who will submit on no terms
that we could accept, or on no
terms we could prudently accept
without a smashing defeat. A wise
chancellor must estimate on the
longer  periods."
Oq the terms of issue the new
securities would pay four per cent.,
and already 100,000,000 pounds
($500,000,000) had been offered to
the government, while tlie Rank of
England had agreed to give credit
facilities, which would relieve pressure on tlie money market and make
for security most valuable to the
financial and mercantile community.
Mr. Lloyd-George was loudly
cheered upon resuming hls seat, and
all  the resolutions passed.
The war loan prospectus was
issued last night.

his own skill.
Andrew Bonar Law, leader of the
opposition in the House of Commons,
seconded the resolution for the erection or the monument and the mers-
ure was carried unanimously.

Gung of Lord Roberts' Old Regiment
Roar Last Farewell to Dead
LONDON, Nov. 18.���The official
press bureau gives a touching
account of the funeral services for
Field Marshal Lord Roberta at *he
headquarters of the British army in
"The route of the cortege from
the house where he died to the
Mairle, where the funeral service
was held," says the press bureau's
statement, "was lined with British
and French troops. The coffin was
borne on a gun carriage. It was an
impressive ceremony. The guard of
honor were Indian and British
"To the wail of 'Flowers of the
Forest' of the pipers, the cortege
moved slowly through double ranks
of soldiers with arms reversed.
"General officers acted as pallbearers. Those following the casket included representatives of the
family of Lord Roberts and of King
Albert and of President Poincare,
the Prince of Wales, Prince Arthur
of Connaught and Field Marshal
"The simple funeral service was
conducted by Chaplain Anderson, of
the British forces. At the close of
the service the British bugles rang
out with 'The Last Post.' As the
coffin was removed to a motor ambulance for conveyance to Boulogne,
French trumpeters across the square
blew a fanfare and the guns of
���Lord Roberts' old regiment roared
out a last farewell. A double rainbow gleaned on a mass of dark
clouds and an aeroplane circling
above, one of the aerial guards
watching and protecting the procession, dipped in salute."

OTTAWA, Nov.     19.���From    the

the Minister of Finance hero and the
announcement made by Mr. Asquith
in the House of Commons, il is believed here the financing of Canada's

vitbout  undue  strain.      The Minister of Finance said that the Bank of
England   would   make   advances   as
required by the    Canadian    government for military and naval expendi-
ure.     The British    Prime Minister
.nnounces that an amount will be in-
luded in the Imperial War Loan to
over such expenditure.     It is clear
hat the money raised by the Imperial
government for Canada will ne used
Ito liquidate th9 Indebtedness of the
iBank of England and that the Imperial  government  will  become the
creditor of the Canadian government.

i ster, a Canadian loan will be made
1 n London at a time to be mutually
agreed  nupon   by  the  Minister  and
Chancellor  of the    Exchequer    and
from the proceeds the Imperial government will be oald,     No doubt the
arrangements will continue through-
