HOW PATRIOTIC
FUND IS SPENT
H. B. AMES, SECRETARY OF THE
FUND,   TELLS OF ADMINISTRATION.
Mie Money Raised to Assist the Dependents of Soldiers Well
Spent.
How the five-million dollar Canadian patriotic fund for the soldiers'
wives is being raised and administered is explained In a comprehensive
statement just issued by H. B. Ames,
M.P., honorary secretary of the fund,
This is in part as follows:
"From the soldiers' point of view
a national fund, equalizing assistance to the families is preferable. If
two Canadian volunteers, sharing the
same tent on the Belgian frontier,
were to receive letters from their
Canadian homes, it would be extremely unfortunate were one to
learn that his wife, being in a rich
community, was lavishly cared for,
while the others' dependents, in a
more hard pressed district, were receiving little assistance.
"The central organization is useful in working out a uniform system
for the dispensing of relief. It has
been found that some committees
are Inclined to deal over-generously
with their soldiers' wives; others
place the soldiers' dependents in
the same category as the .down-and-
outs of the town. The central organization exercises a valuable Influence
in  both  respects.
"There has been established under
the direction of the central executive
an information bureau, with head
quarters at Ottawa, where a record
of the combined experiences of all
the branches is gathered, and infor
mation and suggestion constantly
supplied, its close relationship with
the department of militia and defence being mutually advantageous
• Today there Is a common fund
with which about 91 per cent, of the
organizations for tlie relief of soldiers' dependents are affiliated.
Provincial branches had been formed and were operating successfully
by the end of 1914 in Nova Scotia
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta,
British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, and in Ontario, Quebec and
New Brunswick the city and county
system had been Inaugurated. These
eastern branches had, up, to the
middle of January, sent in to the
Hon. W. T. White, honorary treasurer of the fund, about $2,350,000,
while the total cash disbursements
had amounted to about $555,000,
leaving net cash resources available
for future needs to the extent of $1,-
800,000. The several branches had
collected further sums amounting to
$4011,000, which had been deposited
at the capital of each province, and
could be drawn upon only with the
consent of the honorary treasurer of
the national fund. Many communities
are collecting on the instalment plan,
with a view to having a regu'ar and
continuous source of revenue.
"When money is raised by a
branch of the Canadian Patriotic
Fund it Is regarded as belonging to
Ihe   corporation.
"Only in a few ' exceptional
circumstances is assistance directly
furnished from Ottawa. The local re
lief committee of each branch exercises full autonomy in deciding the
amount that each family on their roll
shall receive. The dependents of soldiers and sailors who are on active
service with the armies of . Great
Drilain and her allies are all entitled

RECENT FIGHT IN NORTH SEA
CONFIRMS WISDOM OF BRITISft POLICY
Design Of Thc Imperial Warships Showed Up Well In The Contest With
The German Cruisers—Guns Carried Also Proved To Be Suitable For
The Work On Hand—The Demand For A Cessation Of Battleship
Construction Is Not Sustained By  The Conflict
The recent battle in the North
Sea which ended disastrously for
Germany with the sinking of the
Blucher and the crippling, of two of
her cruisers has confirmed the wisdom of the British naval policy during the last decade, and will tend to
silence those critics who advocated
the abandonment of battleship construction and urged that the activities of the shipyards should be confined to the building of submarines.
The effective work performed by
the Lion in that fight is a special
source of congratulation to the British naval designers, as it was against
the battle cruisers of the fleet, of
which the Lion is the most recent
type, that much of the adverse criticism was directed.
The Lion and the Princess Royal,
her sister ship, were completed in
1912. They have a displacement of
26,000 tons and included in their
armament are eight of the 13.5 guns
with which the battleships of the
Orion type, which were launched In
1911 and 1912, were the first to be
equipped. At the time that the first
announcement was made with regard to the furnishing of the ves
sels with these guns there was considerable hostile criticism from naval
experts, but so little did the British
admiralty think of the adverse comments as to the size of these guns,
that  the    new    battleships    of    the
Queen Elizabeth type are fitted with
15-inch guns which are three inches
larger than any gun with which the
German navy is equipped.
These guns throw a projectile of
1,950 pounds, as compared with a
projectile weight of 1,350 from the
12-inch guns, thereby giving the
British ships an aggregate projecti'e
weight of 15,600 pounds, as compared with 10,800 of the German 12-
inch guns In each round.
At the time of the declaration of
hostilities by Germany the British
navy was composed of 728 vessels of
all kinds which were manned by
1*1,000 men of all ranks, not including the Naval reserve of approximately 10,000 men. This number Included four super-dreadnoughts of
the Iron Duke type, four super-
dreadnoughts of the King George
V. type, and four super-dreadnoughts
of the Orion type, ten dreadnoughts
of 20,000 tons displacement, and
over forty battleships, ten battle
cruisers, thirty-four armored cruisers, two fast light cruisers, eight
scouts of the Sentinel type Including
the ill-fated Pathfinder, which was
sunk by a German submarine,   Sep-
of which the Miranda is the only
vessel yet launched; torpedo boats
in commission, but not including
about fifty vessels of this class of
obsolete pattern, and fifty-two auxiliary ships, including mother ships
for destroyers, mine-laying ships,
distributing ships, oil vessels, and
repair and hospital ships.
The earliest battleships still in active commission are of the Majestic
type. There are nine of these vessels and they were all included in
the 1898 programme. They have a
displacement of 14,900 tons, their
horse-power is 12,000 and their coal-
carrying capacity 2,000 tons. These
vessels have a speed of 17.5 knots
an hour; their armor plate is 9 inches in thickness and the armor protection for the big guns is from ten
to fourteen inches.
A comparison of these figures with
those of the most modern vessels,
such as the Queen Elizabeth and the
Warsplte, is somewhat striking and
shows the great advance made in
battleship construction during the
last few years. Battleships of the
Queen Elizabeth type have a displacement of 27,500 tons, their estimated horse-power  (turbine)  is 58,-
Battleships of the Majestic type
carry four 12-inch guns as compared with eight 15-inch guns with
which the latest battle liners are
armed.
In point of age the next type to
the Majestic class ships are the six
vessels of the Canopus type, which
were built under the 1899-1902 programme. These vessels have a displacement of 12,900 tons and an estimated horse-power of 13,500. They
have a coal-carrying capacity of 2,-
300 tons, which is 300 tons in excess
of the older sisters, and can attain
a speed of 18.5 knots an hour.
The next group is composed of
eight vessels of the Formidable type
which were constructed from 1901 to
1904. They have a displacement of
of 15,000 tons, their horse-power is
15,000, and the coal-carrying capacity 2,000 tons. They can attain a
speed of 18 knots an hour and their
armor plate varies from six to nine
inches with from eight to twelve
inches protection for their heavy
guns.  In  1903-1904  five  vessels   of
SECOND MAY BE
LAST CONTINGENT
REPORT IN MONTREAL SAYS ADDITIONAL TROOPS WILL GO
AS REINFORCEMENTS.
Fewer Permanent Officers it Is Suid
Will lie Spared From Now
Forward.
"The Second will be the last contingent of Canadian soldiers to go to
the front," said a Montreal officer
who returned from Ottawa after a
consultation with the Adjutant-General's Department, according to the
Montreal Star. "Additional troops
will be sent over, but not as a division, as was the case with the First
Contingent and will be with the Second. They will go merely as reinforcements for the 50,000 Canadians
going forward with the First and
Second contingents."
A prominent officer of a local unit
expressed the same belief, saying
that he had it 3 doubt but that Canada would send all the troops needed,
but that he thought future contributions would be made In this manner. He suggested this as the reason
that the Third Contingent was not
already being recruited and mobilized, no orders having yet been received local'r to begin actual recruiting for the contingent.
"It works out this way," he said.
"There are now at Salisbury Plain
30,000 Canadians who will be at the
front shortly. Then the 20,000 now
in training In Canada will go over,
and when they go to the front It
will keep Canada busy supplying re-

"The distance between the Bziti'i
River, and the German front,
though greater in mileB than between Zochaczew and Warsaw, Is
strategically much less important

"The territory occupied by us in
East Prussia is now parcel of the

Consequently the units which have

Third Contingent would be held in
Canada, undergoing training until
the casualties among the Canadian
regiments required that one or more
of them go forward. This system has
already been worked out in that reinforcements have been sent over
for the Princess Pats.
"Second Contingent regiments,
like the 24th Victoria Rifles and the
22nd French-Canadian battalions,
would not be affected by the change
in plans, but believe that units like
the second French-Canadian Regiment and the 42nd Highlanders Bat- '

The officer who had returned from
Ottawa said that official announcement would likely be made shortly
to the effect that the Imperial War
Office and the Canadian Department
of Militia had agreed as to the
change in the system of sending forward the Canadians. "The method
of recruiting In Canada would continue the same," he said. "The difference would be that, Instead of
the units going forward to England

OBLIQUE  VISION.
The editor of the News now tries
too excuse himself for the mischief
he has done in connection with the
Hospital Board by stating that he
did not. intend to attack Judge
Young. As a matter of fact, Judge
Young should not be exempt from
unfair criticism any more than any
other citizen who gives his services
to the public in connection with the

to similar treatment. It is expected
that the local committee shall determine the amount neces»ry to
enable a typical family to maintain
a decent scale of living in their community. This has no reference to
what the wage-earner was receiving
before he enlisted. Tho government
allows the wife or widow a separation allowance of $20 a month, and
the patriotic fund pays the difference in cash. Sometimes the remark
is heard that a woman is better off
while her husband is at the front
than when he was at home. But this
Is no ground for criticism. Mrs.
Smith may have a pretty hard time
for several years, but when her husband enlists and becomes Private
Smith of the Canadian contingent,
and as such does his full duty io
his king and his country, Mrs.
Smith's position in life may also
rightly be advanced. The fund is not
a charity. Those who fight and do
their share are entitled to the help
of those who remain at home and
carry on business as usual.
"A criticism which has been beard
is that the patriotic fund is already
large enough, and that other demands are more pressing; the Belgian relief committee and the Red
Cross  fund  are  deserving  of   every
Hospital Board  or any other board.
The News editor says in effect   that Idollar that they receive. But no at
his objection is that  the control of| tempt   has   been
tbe Board is "in  the hands of men
with   well  known    political   proclivi
ties." We fail to see that this can
be any objection to a citizen. Personally we have more respect for
men of well known political proclivities than we have for men who have
not pronounced views on matters
political whether we agree with them
or not. Apparently the editor of the
News has had political experience
with a class of men that has not
given him a very exalted idea of
such. If bis affiliations in a political
way have been such as to give him
a false idea with respect to politics
there is no reason for his inferring
that all who associate in party politics do so with evil motives.
The fact remains that the affairs
of the Hospital have been conducted
independent of party politics and the
charges insinuated by the News are
false.

made to divert
money to any of these organizations.
"At the present time it is estimated that between nine and ten thousand soldiers' families in various
parts of Canada are being assisted
from the patriotic fund. This involves an expenditure of $6,000 per
day. If the war continues and successive contingents are called for, it
may be expected that this demand
will steadily increase. At present
$150,000 per month is required.
This will soon reach $200,000, and
probably $250,000 per month before the end of the year. The national committee will feel secure only
so long as the monthly contributions
coming in to the central fund are
keeping pace with this disbursement.
"In the event of war suddenly
ceasing, it has been asked, what
would be done with the surplus?
This question is left without definite
answer. The national committee
comprise representative men from
every province. They would very
carefully consider the question. They
might determine that some other
need arising out of the war should
be presented to the subscribers as a
worthy object to which to devote
the unexpended balance of the fund,
or they might return pro rata what
was left to each subscriber.
"Another criticism is that the cost
of administration reduces materially
the amount of assistance. For the
refutation of such as hold this view
the bank interest on the balance In
hand, it is stated, has, up to this I
time, covered the cost of administration of the head office and of the
branches, and will probably continue
to do so. Contributors, therefore,
may rest content that every cent of
money will reach the soldiers' dependents."

MANY PROBLEMS
WILL  FACE   CANADA
AT FINISH OF WAR
That the conclusion of the war
will find coming up for solution in
Canada many, questions which have
hitherto been discussed more or less
with bated breath, was the contention of Sir Clifford Sifton, at the
luncheon of the Canadian Club at the
Windsor Hotel in Montreal a few
days ago, says the Star. The subject
of his address was "Canada's Place
in the War—and Afterwards."
On the last occasion in which I
spoke in Montreal it was a somewhat
stormy night out in the Square,"
said Sir Clifford at the commencement of his speech. This allusion to
the mobbing of the speaker during
the heat of the reciprocity campaign
of 1911 raised a hearty laugh.
We were, he continued, passing
through one of the world's greatest
tragedies, but we must still continue
to carry on the ordinary business ot
life. The part Canada was taking
in this great tragedy was bound to
have its effect upon Canadian nationhood. We had sent the greatest army
across the ocean to help the Motherland which had ever crossed the Atlantic, and Canada was today disposing of an armed force greater I
than that commanded by Napoleon'
and Wellington together at Waterloo.
Canada could  no longer say  that.
world would never again allow her
to take this stand after the part
she was now playing. In Par'iament
Sir Robert Borden had suggested
that the time would soon come when
Canada should be given a voice in
the foreign policy of the Empire,
and he understood that the Hon.
Charles Doherty, minister of justice,
had held to the same view. Opinions
differed as to the practicability of
this, two such eminent authorities
as Mr. Asquith and Sir Frederick
Pollock holding entirely opposite
views.
our law suits to be settled in Lon
don?" he asked.
"In the last six or seven years
there has been no effective criticism
of the expenditure of the Dominion
of Canada," Sir Clifford continued.
"It is to be noticed that in almost
every case where a member of the
opposition objects to the course
taken by a minister It is not because
too much money is being spent but
because too little is." The speaker
saw in the Canadian corporation law
the same "generosity," not to say
laxity,    where   expenditure   is   con-

was regarded as a monument of
wisdom. Such it may have been—at
the time, but times had changed.
Now when it became necessary to
amend or alter this Canadian Constitution the only way by whicli a
"full grown people" could do it was
through the Colonial Secretary.
There should be some method by
which the Canadian people themselves should be able to alter their
own constitution when necessary.
Sir Clifford thought also that it ciers did something for the farmers,
was high time that Canada was al- ] "The banks of Canada are not
lowed to settle her own legal prob-'giving the accommodation required,"
lems  without  recourse  to  the  Privy Sir Clifford declared. The reason for
"We have prepared for ourselves
the debacle whicli is upon us," he
said. "Hard times have not come on
account of the war. They would have
come whether war had come or not.
"It sometimes seemed as though
Canada had decided that it was nowj
the duty of the farmers to get to
work and pay Interest on all the
securities Issued by the financial
world. But if the farmers were to
do this it was high  time the   flnan-

"Our bar is justly known for its
wide ability and integrity and it
should not be difficult to find in it
judges competent to settle any question arising," he said. "It has been

this was to be found in the fact that
Canadian banks were not organized

but for the commercial man.

done better than we might have expected, but the farmer is not getting

tion. The first dreadnought had a
speed of 21 knots an hour and turbine-driven engines displaced the older types up to use at that time.
The next year saw the completion
of the Agamemnon and the Lord
Nelson, which were the first improvement on the original dreadnought. These two vessels have a displacement of 16,500 tons and an estimated horse-power of 16,750, both
of which are considerably below the
dreadnought pattern. Their armor
sheath is from four to twelve inches
compared with eleven inches
throughout in their older sister.
Three vessels were completed in
190 9,the Bellerophpn, the Temeraire
and the Superb. They have a displacement of 18,600 tons, a horsepower of 23,000 and a coal-carrying
capacity of 2,700 tons. They are
capable of a speed of 21 knots and
have an armored sheath of from ten
to eleven inches. In 1910 the St. Vincent, Collingwood and Vanguard
were completed. These vessels are
slightly larger than those of the
Superb type and have the same
speed, but their armor plate is abouj;
9.7 inches.
The Neptune, Colossus and Hercules were launched the following
year, and the thicker armor plate
of the original dreadnought was returned to, while the coal carrying
capasity of the vessels was increased
to 2,700 tons.
The following year saw the first
13.5 guns on British battleships. The
three vessels of the Orion type
launched that year have 25,000 tons
displacement, a horse-power of 27,-
000, a speed of 21 knots an hour,
and an armored sheath of twelve
