Mr. Austen' Chamberlain's re-"  cent speech has however, brought  forth a protest from Earl Grey,  who as Governor-General of Can-  ada at th6 time in question, was  in. a position to study the situation with an unbiaszed mind.  " Earl Grey"writing to the London  Times, says:  ' 1 desire to protest against the  ' assumption that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's policy, of reciprocal  freel  trade in certain natural products  between Canada and the United  .   States showed any want of 1m-  , perial spirit on his part. , On the  ���������<i6ntraryy it was. believed by Sir  Wilfrid and hm colleagues.that  tie fi-ee entry of the product of  Canadian farmers, fisheries and  forests into A protected market  of over 90,000,000 people would  ���������add greatly to the wealth of Canada, -and would thus create an in-  ��������� creased market for the protected  manufactures of Canada and the  United Kingdom.    That caused  them to favor the policy of reci-  . prbcityf   It isppaaibler-Imay go  farther; and any it is not improbable���������that had this policy .been  accepted by the people of Canada,  the   British'   preference  "would  have- been further increased.      f  "As one of those who desire to  secure the nearest possible approximation to inter-imperial free  track*,  that,  firstly, revenue requirements, and iiecondly, natioh- i  ourselves in the city of Mainz,  and turning aside along the quay same bank we come to  Rudes-  Why Not Man and  Maintain Them?  The Canadian Countryman says  that Canada could not man battleships because recruits would hot  riot be available. Even if this  were true, it would not be a valid  objection to Canada manning and  maintaining the ships which it is  proposed to build for the British  navy. If we cannot supply the  recruits we can,pay the expense  of maintenance.
