Thc outcome''is  apparent in the determination to  stick to the old Laurier navy idea,  at least for thc coming debate, while  at the same time carefully avoiding  any real opposition to the Government proposals. The Opposition,  following the cue given by Sir Wilfrid yesterday and emphasized- in today's caucus, will declare their devotion and loyalty to the Empire, but  will place .������������������������������������������������������ their own interpretation  upon the admiralty memorandum,  professing, to find therein justification of the late premier's scheme.

His Majesty, by and with the consent of the senate and house of commons of Canada, enacts as follows:  1. From and out of the consolidated revenue fund of Canada there  may be paid and applied a sum not  exceeding ?3f>,000,000 for- the purpose  of immediately increasing the effective naval forces of the Empire.  2. The said sum shall be used and  applied under the direction of the  Governor-in-Council in the construction  and  equipment of battleships or  armored cruisers uf the most modern  and powerful type.  3. The said ships when constructed  and equipped shall be placed by the  Governor-in-Council at the disposal  of Hi.s Majesty for the common defence of the Empire.  .. The said sum shall he paid, used  and applied, and the said ships shall  be constructed and placed at the disposal of His Majesty subject to such  terms, conditions and arrangements  as may be agreed upon between the  Governor-in-Council and Flis Majesty's  government.  In the course of his speech presenting his naval policy, Premier Borden  read to the house a memorandum  sent to him by the British admiralty  ENDERBY FLOUR  MOFFET'S BEST  Made strictly from Saskatchewan ,a'nd Alberta wheat, in the  ONLY MILL in the Okanagan.

COLUMBIA   FLOURING   MILLS   CO. Limited  in which the international situation  is set forth with the greatest clear-  ! ness, the rapid rise of the German  ���������������������������navy sketched and thc measures necessary for thc maintenance of the  j British Empire's safety and prcdom-  jinance    outlined. The    concluding  'paragraph of this memorandum is  the keynote of the whole of the Canadian government's policy, for it sets  forth the unquestioned desire of the  British admiralty for a donation.. It  says: "The prime minister of the  dominion having inquired in what  form any immediate aid that Canada  might give would be most effective  we have no hesitation in answering  after a prolonged consideration of all  the circumstances, that it is desirable that such aid should include the  provision of a certain number of the  largest and strongest, ships of war  which science can build or money  supply."   ���������������������������  Mr. Borden stated that the new  ships would all bear names of historic Canadian interest, and appor-  tunities would be given to Canadian  officers especially to serve on them.  The ships will be built in the United Kingdom, under admiralty supervision, as there are at present no facilities for building them in Canada.  In this connection, Mr. Borden announced that -,he had secured the assurance of the admiralty that they  are prepared,' in the early future, to.  give orders for the construction in  Canada, of" small cruisers, oil ctank  vessels and auxiliary vessels of various kinds. Thus will the basis be  laid for a great shipbuilding industry  in Canada. The 'admiralty is not  taking this important- step as a quid  pro quo for Canada's aid, but because they know it is not to the Empire's advantage that all its shipbuilding resources should be concentrated in the United Kingdom.  Mr. Borden also announced that he  had made arrangements' with thc  British Government that if the time  should   come   -when   it was thought  necessary to have a Canadian unit  .of** thc Imperial navy, these three  dreadnaughts would be returned to  thc Dominion and become a nucleus  of the new fleet, when, of course,  their upkeep would devolve upon  Canada.  In concluding his speech, Mr. Borden made this significant reference to  Canada's participation in shaping the  Empire's foreign policy: "When  Great Britain no longer assumes sole  responsibility for defense upon the  high seas she can no longer undertake to assume sole responsibility  for and sole control of foreign policy,  which is closely, vitally and constantly associated with the defence  in which the dominions participate.  It has been declared in the past and  even during' recent years that responsibility, for foreign policy could  not bc shared by Great Britain with  the dominions. In my humble opinion the adherence to such a policy  could have but one and that a most  disastrous result. During my recent visit to the British Islands I  ventured on many occasions to propound the principle that thc great  dominions sharing - in the defence of  the Empire upon the high seas must  necessarily be entitled to share also  in the responsibility for and in the  control of foreign policy. No declaration that I made -.was greeted  more heartily and enthusiastically  than this. It is satisfactory to  know that to-day not only His Ma-'  jesty's ministers but also the leaders  of the opposite political party in  Great Britain have explicitly accepted this principle and have affirmed  that the means by- which it can.be  constitutionally, accomplished must \  he sought, discovered and utilized ;  without delay."

There    wa  no    response,    so without hesitation ;  offered  my services.'   He took mo a  once  into  the   stateroom   and    in ro.  duced me to a worried-looking y un .  man.    There was no need to a k 1-i  trouble.    On the couch to.-.sed a little  girl of five  rr six years, her cheeks  and eyes bright with lever   I had a few simple remedies w'th  me, but the child showed ratlin-  alarming symptoms of an aggravated  cold. Deciding'to take no risk, i sent  a telegram ahead, and when we reach  ed Winnipeg a physician with nece.-.  sary medicines came aboard and ac  companied us to Port Arthur.  Dorothy escaped all of the malad-'e*  with which Fhe was threatened ad  by the time we reached Tsronta w s  very much better. Howe er, Mr.  Singleton, her father, retained me,  and the three of us went to a fash  ionable hotel.

Christmas was approaching   and   Dor-  j her, and then she bubbled over ancl  I we had a gay afternoon finishing the  ' tree.  | Mrs. Singleton was on the step-  j ladder laughing down at me when  Dorothy and her father came in. The  laugh died on her lips, but I caught  his glorified look and heard Dorothy's  glad cry. Then I crept silently 'ro-n  the room, feeling the loneliness o  spinsterhood as I had never iho jg lit  to do.
