The understanding arrived at with Russia and the  ilure to protect the independence of Persia have created luke-  llllfwarmness eyen among Liberals,  ^though the effect of such aliena-  'if'  ?tion can be better estimated in  ^England than in Canada.  }'$$&& The government has shown it-  ^���������cf������|self active in reform, and its pro-  i^ipgressive measures have aroused  ��������� s^5f||fereat  hostility   in   reactionary  'W< "Scamps whether Unionist or Lib-  !( s,' h>: '��������� y������wq1      TViPQP  with fhp PfHpsiasti-  Those of Weymouth Class to Ee Tur-  biners Capable of Making 27  Knots.  ^.,   "eral.

In arriving at  rthis conclusion Mr. Hardie travels  along a line of fine logic deduced  ��������� from the more recent political  developments.���������. He says:  '' The relations between Liber-  "  alism  and Labor  may  be thus  ��������� summarized.     In the House we  ���������are generally able, while retaining pur independence, to give a  ���������   general support to the government policy, except in regard to  their naval expenditure and their  foreign policy.   To both of these  we are  strongly  opposed.    The  former   is   quite needlessly ex-'  , travagant,  and  the latter quite  'needlessly anti-German.    In the  ^country we act wholly independently of the Liberal party in every  During   the   last twelve  months, we have contested eight  bye-elections agai; istthe Liberals.  "At the presen . moment, the  Imperialists absolutely dominate  the government and the Liberal  party. For some .time. Winston  Churchill worked with Lloyd  George in the cause of democracy.  But now Churchill has gone over,  bag and baggage, to the Imperialists. And Mr. Lloyd George is  the sole democrat in the cabinet,  with the exception of Lord Mor-  ley,  whose  advanced   age   pre-  u  According to information  brought on the steamer Zealandia,  which arrived at Vancouver Tuesday night from Australia, the construction of the Commonwealth's  protected cruisers of the second  class, Sydney and Melbourne, is  being carried on under the strictest secrecy.  Increasing Dimensions  No official particulars of the  ships have been published, but it  is unofficially stated that the  dimensions will show a slight  increase on those of the improved  "Town" class cruisers, such as  the Weymouth.  Already this class has reached  three stages. The original  "Town" class ships were the  Bristols, of 4,800 tons. Then  followed the Weymouths, of 5,200  tons, and the latest of all are the  Ghathams, of 5,400 tons. The  Australian cruisers will be of this  latter class, the first of" which  was the Chatham, launched at  the port after which she was  christened on November 10 last.  Horse Power  The dimensions of these ships  have been slightly increased all  round, the length overall being  carried to 456 feet, 50-foot beam,  and 15 feet 9 inches draft. The  shaft horse power is stated to be j  25,000, with turbine engines, and  the speed of the cruisers will be  twenty-seven knots.  eludes him from exerting his  influence over the Imperial policy  of, his colleagues.  "Lloyd George is certainly in a  position of isolation. If he withstands the pressure of his cabinet  colleagues on "matters of naval  and foreign policy he will then be  elbowed out, and the government  will then loose what confidence  the working classes may still have  in them. Lloyd George would,  no doubt, be allowed to remain  and dole out certain instalments  of social reform, provided he  would acquiesce in the navy scare,  and the anti-German scare, and  the rest. But, in that case, he  would loose the confidence of the  working classes."  Mr. Hardie's deductions throw  an interesting light on the almost  superhuman efforts that are being  put forth by political parties in  both the Mother Country and  Canada to develop the sentiment  of "Imperialism" in the overseas  dominions.

It is believed that the Covenant will declare unconpromising  hostility to any Dublin parliament  and pledge its signatories to refuse to pay taxation declared by  any such legislation.  Arrangements have been completed between Sir Edward Grey,  secretary of state for foreignt  affairs, and Hon. George E. Foster, minister of trade and commerce, by which the .whole of the  British Consular service extend-  ing to every point in the world,  will be placed at the disposal of  Canadian commercial interests.  Means are'provided also for  building up a distinct Canadian  consular service under the auspices of the British service. The  plan should prove of the greatest  value to Canadian exporters, as  arrangements are made for securing information rapidly, while  authentic information as to Canadian resources and development  will be available in. all, parts of  the globe.

MIND  UNHINGED  Brother of Well Known Bella Coola  Rancher Commits Suicide  Tuesday 20th inst.  Accompanying  the   statement  Chief engineer Arthur, of the  S. S. "Venture," spent several  hours ashore last Sunday while  the ship was loading salmon at  the Cannery wharf. Mr. Arthur  who was representing Victoria  capitalists, was shown over some  of the choice building sites by  Messrs Carlsen and Harris, (Bella Coola Realty Co.)  The developments which have  taken   place   recently,    were   a  source of surprise to Mr. Arthur,  I who had not paid a visit to our  I town for some considerable time.  A fire which, but for prompt  action, would undoubtedly have  had disastrous results, was discovered to have broken out in one of  the boiler houses at Namu on the  19th inst.  The fire which started during  the noon hour, was fortunately  discovered before it had time to  get a thorough hold and immediate steps were taken to prevent  it from spreading.  Several lines of hose were soon  playing on the flames with good  effect, while hands were engaged  moving the piles of lumber out of  the danger zone. In a short time  the flames were entirely subdued.  The damage which was estimated  at several hundred dollars will  not materially interfere with the  work of the plant.

We shall consider the, question  briefly'iri'-the order stated at the  , beginning of this article.  '���������'.������  -<r. 1 . '   " \      '}  Vt. i II  Ther,e. is. no" question but what  a railroad, is-needed to open up  the vast interior of.the province  ��������� and1 thfe Peace River valley. The  crops" of' the4 interior of Canada  are in danger every year of being  ��������� damaged,; either in quality or  price, because of scarcity of cars  ^"arid other riieans of transportation  to J-bnng -it^ to' the consumers.  Heretofore the great bulk of the  , crops'have "been shipped East.  By the opening ,of the Panama  Canal and, with the transformation of the Jment going on, the  current of traffic will be reversed;  it will flow West to the harbors  nearest the producers. This will  mean* a -new.-era. for the Pacific  coast. ��������� It. will, in a comparitive  short' -time," vie- in wealth and  population with the Atlantic seaboard.  The time is ripe for such a railroad ;��������� the people are anxiously  looking for cheap lands, they are  already pouring into the Peace  River valley ahead of the railroad  and they must have transportation; and it will pay any railway  company to give  it them  even  miles-ihan either Prince Rupert  or Vancouver. It is nearer the  'Orient -than either of them, and  the, saving of distance means  saving of both time and money,  the great factors of doing business  economically and'profitably.  Bella Coola, and this.part of the  province;" - are . entitled to this  railroad   in   preference   of   the  r i  cities already mentioned.  It isrwise statemanship to ,de-  C      ' ' '      - '  y e 1 o pie the country - generally  throughout, not to build' up one  part of the country at' the ex!-  pense of .another; not drain the  wealth of this part of the province  for instance, to build up Victoria  or Vancouver.^ It is not just;  and any statesman * who- is not"  guided by, a sense of, justice, is  either a' grafter, or a demagogue.  A wise .and good* statesman will  see to it, that" every part of the  province receives its just" share  of development.  To build up and rnake a great  city still'greater at the expense  of part of province not naturally  tributary to it, -is not beneficial to  the province as a whole; neither  would it be to the city in question  itself. Such a policy will enrich  some men more than is good for  either Ihem or their, surroundings;  it will congest \the wealth in'small  areas and in, a few hands. The  same policy is also sure to create  that which we fin din every large  city, namely slums', with its poverty, vice and crime, a festering  sore upon the body politic and a  greater menace to our free institutions than the classes financially  benefitted by the concentration  of wealth will admit.  We are likely to return to the  discussion of this subject in some  future issue, and shall therefore  leave the reader to ponder the  above facts, '   "���������  . It is surely one of the tragi-  comedies of public life, that  President Taft, who a year ago  i  seemed destined__to become the  universal peace-maker, should be  known, even in his own country,-  as" the treaty-breaker. * t  , Whatever excuses may be offer-  ed for his defence of the Panama  Canal ,Act���������and the impending  Presidential election is one���������the  President must recognise that he  has acted in defiance of public  opinion in the United States.  No newspaper in Great Britain  or Canada has denounced this  breach of international faith one  half so strongly as have the large  majority of the leading journals  throughout the United, States.  Although, the Senate rejected  President Taft's proposal to submit to arbitration every dispute  between Great Britain and the  United State's, there happily exists , a. convention to which the  former mayappealwithconfidence.  The arbitration convention rati-  fied at Washington in June 1908.  Provides that, ''Differences which  may arise of a legal nature or  relating to,the interpretation of  treaties between trie two contract-  ing parties and which it may. not  have been possible to - settle by  diploiriacy, shall be referred to  "the'Permanent Courtof Arbitration established at the Hague."  - To this tribunal the United  States must submit the interpretation of the Hay-Paunceforte  treaty.  Visitors to Bella Cool a would  receive a better impression of the  place and form a hig.-h.er estimate  of its enter-prizing' citizens, if  some one in authority would get  the Hospital grounds ck .aned up.  W-'th this gentle hint vte expect  the Government repretentative,  together with the othe r members  without any bonus or guarantee 'of the Hospital Board will bestir  An international court must  decide whether or not it is possible for legal ingenuity to reconcile the words .of the Panama  Canal Act--"No tolls shall be  levied upon vessels s engaged in  the coastwise trade of the United  States,"with the words of the  treaty���������"There shall Be" no discrimination . .'. in respect of the  conditions or charges of traffic or  otherwise."  To the ordinary man, whether  American or British, there can be  i r  no doubt about the meaning of  these worbs. The Hay-Paunce-  forte treaty gave effect to a bar^  gain'in which the advantage was  with the United States. Great  Britain bartered her established  right to joint control over a transcontinental canal for absolute  equality, of treatment in the  Panama Canal. The United  States cannot repudiate the con-  ditions under which they were  granted control over the canal. ''  It is no justification  to urge  ft  that' other nations. may subsidise  their mercantile marine. Great  Britain has never adopted this'  policy. . Neither is it any defence  to niaintain that coastwise shipping, being exclusively American,  does not invade the treaty rights.  ' Apart from the impossibility of(  defining what is "coastwise shipping in a country like the United  States, there is the fact that any  remission'of tolls must add to the  charges which are levied on the  ships of other'nations,to keep up  the canal, and thereby violate the  undertaking that the tolls be just  and equitable.  <1}i*sam<*a  England, Germany and War  The following article appears in a recent issue, of  . ��������� World's Work."   ���������  'The  A nation's strength and,might  Are not her ships and guns,  But her. rev'rence of the right  And manhood of her sons.

The madness that broke out  four years ago in Great Britain  and Germany, the mad fear and  expectation of war, shows no  sign of abatement. A Liberal  Government of decided socialistic  tendencies, possessing among its  ministers men;otherwise not only  sane but long-headed and wide-  sympathied, voted another great  increase in the naval programme.

"Germany plans for 41 battleships, 20 great armored cruisers,  40 smaller cruisers, four-fifths of  the navy to be kept in commission  and instantly ready for ;battle,"  the First Lord of the Admiralty  told Parliament.    Great Britain  is to have, therefore, more than  Germany; not enough  more to  satisfy the Conservatives, or indeed to satisfy anybody, the fact  being that England is no longer  able  to   keep   an   unchallenged  place ahead in the race for naval  supremancy.    Only a few years  ago it was the ground principle  of British  policy that  England  must have more battleships than  any other two Powers combined.
