The leader of the Opposition had
further stated that this is a policy
of permanent contribution.
He took the strongest possible exception to this statement. It was not
a policy of contribution, it was not
a permanent policy at all, it was
merely a proposal to build three
battleships in Great Britain to he
owned by the people of Canada and
to be placed at the disposal of His
Majesty the King for the common
defence of the Empire. Why was the
leader opposed to this policy

pie decided, if they should decide,
to build up an efficient naval service of their own. He would like to
know in what respect autonomy
could possibly be injured by such a
proposal as this. Are we not, he asked, masters of our own destiny, and
will this proposal change our status
in that regard? There could he no
question about this.
Turning to the naval resolution
of 1900 Mr. Borden declared that the
government's present proposal was
not a departure from the spirit of
that resolution. In 1900 ho had suggested that the contribution should
he made to Ihe Empire should an
emergency arise. This suggestion
was embodied in the resolution in a
modified form. We believe, he said,
thai this urgency has developed today and we accordingly are carrying out tile terms of that resolution
as modified by I lie Government at
thai  time.
Imperial Defence Committee,
Mr. Borden Ihen took up Ihe question of representation on the Imperial Defence Committee. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, he said, had himself
agreed thai Canada should he represented on that committee. Now he
was opposed to such a'proposal, For
what reason? he asked. For the
reason, he believed, that Ihe leader
of the Opposition felt llial Canada
should be neutral in time of war.
For himself he thought thai it was j
not possible for Canada lo remain a
part ot the Empire under such conditions
"if we are to remain neutral In
time of war," lie said, "we should not
expect to have the protection of the
British flag In time of peace, Thai
siand could nol be taken by any
Belf-respecting man In the Dominion I
of Canada."
Sir Wilfrid and Ills party had in
1910  brought   in   what   was supposed
to be a permanent policy, bul they
had not, submitted II to the people,
Now they were demanding thai »
policy thai was not permanent, bul
llial was designed to nice! a special
existing condition should nol be
carried into effect until the p eople
had had a chance lo pronounce upon
it.
Not Permanent Policy.
"This is not a permanent polity,"
declared Mr. Borden with marked
emphasis. "Jt is the policy that we
take In view of the distinct and
definite statement of the Admiralty
that the best way in which we can
assist In strengthening the. naval
forces of the Empire Is by the provision of a certain number of armored battleships or armored cruisers.
Though the leader or the Opposition refused to put his permanent
policy before the people of the Dominion he says that this is a policy
which should not be carried oui without a reference to tl people. And

more and more evident. Yesterday
there arrived in the port several
small craft that had come from Seattle on the way to Ketchikan to engage in the industry there. They
made this port for the purpose of
replenishing their supply of gasoline. The announcement made by
the owners of these vessels was that
there were about three hundred of

of which  will be used in this work.

master, has strict orders from his
department to see that the rules

SAILINGS OF STEAMERS
SATURDAY.  APRIL 11
THK   NAVAL   SITUATION,
The words of Chief Justice Hunter,
formerly a leader among the Liberals
of the province, but who is now removed from the field of politics by
"nis elevation to tho bench at the
hands of the Liberal Government at
Ottawa, which appear elsewhere in
this edition, are worthy of more than
passing consideration. It is refreshing lo find a man with no political
■advantages lo gain thus expressing
himself. Some months ago the chief
justice expressed himself publicly
on  the subject when he said:
"If as a people we are not willing
<■ ihe utmost of our power, to support the emblem which commands
the respect of the world and guarantees freedom and justice wherever
jt flies, but are ready lo haggle over
the performance of our manifest
duty, and to debate the worth to
ourselves of the maintenance and
defence of British institutions, then
we should deserve to vanish from
"Jiistory as the degenerate sons of the
mother of liberty."
Canada is seeing today to the
discredit of the whole country a
political party making a football of
the question of Imperial defence. For
!the sake of trying to gain a party
-advantage the Liberal party is being
led to decry what in their hearts they
feel is the proper policy to pursue.
In view of what that party did while
in power in the direction of naval
assistance the protestations and
promises now made can only be regarded as humbug.
For the benefit of tricksters who
are playing upon the rank and file
of the party the following words
from the address of the chief jus-
vice in addition to those quoted will
make good  food  for reflection:
"I suppose I am saying things
that are unpalatable to some people,
but I think that this is an occasion
on which even a man in my position, who is perhaps supposed to
preserve a serene impartiality on all
-questions, should speak what he
rhinks. I say that fewer arguments
should be addressed to our materialism and more to our patriotism. I
think that the people of this country concern themselves too much
with how great the wheat crop is
going to be, etc.; we ought to feel
more concerned about other things,
about, the Empire for instance, and
what the various parts of it are doing; how we stand in relation to
them, what they are doing at Hongkong Singapore. Malta, Gibraltar and
Great Britain In regard to Hie defence of the Empire to which v.c all
belong.
"I 11iiiik thai  in the past  we have
in en altogether too apathetic In this
oountry in regard to the Imperial relationship,  I  sincerely hope that we 1
shall   nol   he
for it."

are being driven in the rock at the

PRINCE   RUPERT
PELL FROM WHARF.
Purser Cotter of the steamer
Prince John while in Masset this
trip had an experience that he does
not want to repeat. The wharf is not
well lighted and Mr. Cotter, being
new on the run, was not familiar
with the conditions that prevail. He
therefore walked, unwittingly, off
the wharf into the waters of the harbor. He is an excellent swimmer
and thus he saved himself.

PREMIER'S VIEWS.
(Continued  From Page One)
self twice voted for this portion of
the bill which is the basis of the
whole, the settling of a sum not exceeding $35,000,000 for the purpose of increasing the naval force of
the Empire.
Mr. Borden said that reference
bad been made to relations of Canada to other countries of the world.
He was glad that the relations of
this country with all other countries
was cordial, but it was not by war
ulnno that the destinies of the Empire were controlled, Tbe very fuel
that the British navy had been nil
powerful during ihe last. 100 years
was the reason why the British Empire had been able lo develop. II
was not a question Of war, but of
ability io control tbe paths of the
sous. Scattered over every contlnenl
the Umpire owed lis continued existence to the fact Hint the paths of the
seas hud always been kept secure.
And I his; hill now before the House
proposed to make II absolutely certain for the next few years at least
that the paths should be secured all
over the Empire.
Sonic Limit on Debute.
The Premier said he would venture to suggest that there was not
any reason why, after all that had
been said, there should lie now some
limit placed upon the debate, and
some time fixed when members
might express their opinion by a
vote.
No one would desire to stop fair
and reasonable debate on the question, but fair and reasonable debate
was one thing, and it was quite another thing to have indefinite delay
for the purpose of defeating the
purpose of the bill or of causing a
dissolution of parliament,
Mr. Borden pointed out that if an
Opposition by such tactics could
force the dissolution of parliament,
there would be an important departure from the constitutional usages
of parliament. So far as he knew,
dissolution was ordered by the
Crown upon advice of the ministers,
not upon advice from the Opposition.
If the claims of the present parliament were allowed there would be
a dissolution every year. He submitted that the proposition he had
made for a fair curtailment of the
debate was entirely reasonable, and
he regretted that it had obtained
little favor in the eyes of the gentlemen opposite.
Canadian Naval Organization.
So far as the idea of a Canadian
naval organization was concerned,
he would point out that the present
measure wns made in response to a
direct statement in the Admiralty
memorandum. Despite all the facilities that the United Kingdom offered
in the way of rapidly building ships,
it was quite evident that a general
election would take place before the
ships would be completed, and if
the expressed hope of the honorable
gentlemen were fulfilled and they
were returned to power the ships
could bo immediately made available
for the building up and organizing
of a Canadian navy.
There was no reason whatever
why indefinite delay to the proposals
should be suggested, and he would
once more suggest that in view of
the grave statements in the Admiralty memorandum there should
be a reasonable limit set. for tbe continuation of the debate, and that the
time should be reached as speedily
as possible, when the honorable
members would have a chance to
vote.
Another Rout.
"Fighting" Dick Hyland, Calgary,
and "Kid" Scaler, Edmonton, who
fought a draw in Edmonton some
weeks ago, have been matched to
fight fifteen rounds at Steveston
Arena, B.C., on Saturday, April 26.
The men, It is understood, are fighting for a purse of $2000.
