Address oi Prime Min
ister W. X. Mackenzie King
OTTAWA, August 4.—Addrens by
tke prime minister, Rt. Hon
W. I*. Mackenzie- King, on the
occasion of the unveiling of tbe
statue of Sir Wilfrid Laurier by his
royal highness the Prince of Wake,
Parliament Hill, August 3, 1927:
Tke statue which his royal highness the Prince of Wales has graciously consented to unveil this afternoon has been erected by authority
of parliament to commemorate the
aame and memory of one whose lift
la a part of the history of Canada,
and a part ot the larger community
of British nations of which his majesty Is king.
In the lights and sradows of history
there aro few events which present
more in the way of parallel and contrast than the ceremony of today and
a ceremony of thirty years ago which
It serves to recall. Thirty years ago,
the British emlpire was celebrating
the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria's accession to the* throne. This
year, Canada is celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of the confederation of
her provinces. Thirty years ago, at
the heart of the empire of which she
"was queen, the revqred and venerable Victoria wag bestowing, as a
mark of royal favor, a knighthood on
Wilfrid Laurier, at the time the prime
minister- of Canada. Today ln the
capital of Canada, the memory of Sir
Wilfrid is being honored by bhe illustrious great-grandson of her late ma
Jesty, his royal highness the Prince
ot Wales, our future king, who is
•bout to unveil the statue of -Sir Wilfrid in the distinguished presence,
among others, of his royal highness
Prince Oeorge, and the prime minister of Great Britain. Where in history will be found aught that speaks
more of the Inheritance which we of
the British communities share in
common; or morel of its poetry and
romance? It would almost seem as
if Time, itself, had paused to pay a
tribute, and to give to the occasion
its- appropriate setting.
I bavo. said that the life of Sir Wilfrid is a part of the history of Canada and of the British empire, tt ls in
the perspective of history that we
must seek to viujw lbe life of Laurier
today. That ia not an easy task,
for the great figures of history are
seen ln retrospect Thely emerge ln
their true proportions only as "the
present recedes Into the past. There
li much, however, in the Laurier
whom they all knetfw, wbich his contemporaries, by common consent,
-would have been quick to concede,
and it is of this, more especially that
I desire to speak.
Laurier was, flrst and foremost, a
great Canadian. I do not, I trust,
take from the greatness of other
lives, some of them commemorated
on this hill, when I say that of all the
personalities In our history, his was
most distinctively Canadian. It embodied much of Canada's past as well
as of ito present. It spokei to us of
the tWo great races that have shaped
our destiny, and of a broader toleration In religions faiths.
Jn his ancestry, by direct descent,
Laurier went back to thn beginnings
of French colonisation ln Canada.
Allied to the flrst enduring French
settle-aunt established by Cham-plain
at Quebec in 1608 was the sister settlement at Montreal founded 'by Sieur
de 'Malsoneuve in 1641. Among the
number who, as soldier colonists
with Sieur del Maisonneuve, sought
to gain a wider dominion for their
sovereign and their faith, was Laurier's flrst Canadian ancestor. Others
of his ancestors came ln tbe* years
•immediately following*. 'Fob eight
getoerattons ln unbroken succession
bis forefathers pioneered in the wilds
of the Laurentlans, making for their
children, and their cbild*-*en's .'children, homes on the shores of the St.
It was exactly 200 years from the
time at wbich his flrst ancestor arrived in Canada, that Laurier was
bom on November 20, 1841, at St
Lin, a French-Canadian village not
many miles distant from Montrel. In
that interval of 200 years, Canada
had passed from a French to a British |, possession. More rejmarkable
still, Cgnada.largely French-Canadian,
had, remMlned Britlah, when elsewhere, ln North America, British
colonies ln 1776 declared their independence. Within this period also,
during the war of 1812-14, 'French-
Canadian loyalty oncti more aided In
preserving Canada to the British
Tell me what vou Know Is tru»
I can ton* as well as you."
The seventy-seven years which
elapsed between tbe birth of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier In 1841 and his death
on February 17, 1919, contain the
other epoch-marking events of our
history—tbe establishment of r e-
sponslble self-government, the , confederation of the province's, the expansion of the Dominion, and Canada's participation ln tbe Great war.
It was within this framework, which
embraces Canada's development from
a group of small colonle usnlted by
ten St. Lawrence and the Great
Lakcd, to a nation extending /rom
sea to sea, and holding its place
among the nations of the world, that
Laurier played his part as a leading,
and, for., a considerable) time, the
foremost figure In our public life.
Laurier was elected to the legislature of the province of Quebec in
1871. He entered the parliament of
Canada in 1874. Three years later,
hej became a minister of the crown
in the administration of Alexander
Mackenzie, -fn 1887 he became the
lender of the Liberal party, and leader of the opposition in the house of
commons. In 1896, he became prime
minister. Tho oflice of prime minister be held continuously for fifteen
years. From 1911 to his death in
1919, he continued the leader of his
party and the leader of the opposition. It was a great public career.
In period of time, alone, lt embraced
meembershl-p in the house of commons of within five year ofs half a
At a moment such as tbe. present
it would be impossible, even were It
appropriate, to attempt to sketch tbe
Incidents of Laurier's career. At
m/ost one can but seek to recall a
very few of Laurier's characteristics,
qualities and guiding principles which
gave to his leadership the commanding plac it never lacked. "Nature."
says one of'tis biographers, "was
prodigal of her gifts to Wilfrid Laurier.' Inappcku-ance, he was marked-
bearing spoke of the chivalry of his
race, and ln more partlcularsthan
one, hei gave to chivalry its highest
expression. 'His great natural endowments. were enrichcld by a nobility of character that made his personality one of rare dignity and serenity. Wherever he went he seemed to shed "a constant influctnce.a
peculiar grace." He was singularly
devoid of jealousies and pejudices,
ssingularly charitable in his estimates of others, and singularly for
giving. In all things, he was a great
gentleman. His public and (private
life were sans peur et sans rejproche.
He was the type of leader who mmen
delight to follow, and whom a' nation
is proud to honor.
Laurier was a great parliamentarian. His life was centred ln tbe
house of commons and ite associations. Neither law nor journalism
claimed more than the beginnings of
his caretjr. Once he became the
leader of bis party, it was amid the
affairs of state that his lite was
wholly lived. It Is di cult to Bay
whether the gift of oratory, in which
he was unsurpassed, and which he
exercised with a natural and equal
grace- in the French and Englig languages, brought him more of power
and influence on the platform or in
parliament. Wherever he spoke, men
were attracted by bis words, and
above all by the charm of their delivery and expression, Behind the gift
of utterance- lay a mind keen ln Its
-perceptions and richly stored in a
knowledges of affairs, in history and
"literature; also a heart, tender and
strong in its emotions, and warmly
responsive to the Interests of other
/Sir Wilfrid's political thought was
largely shaped by hiB study of British
history and British politics, and by
his admiration of British parliamentary Institutions. He never ceased
to speak of what he] felt he owed to
tbe writings and example ot such
men as Macaulay and Burke, of Pitt
and Fox, of Bright and Gladstone.
To him the British constitution was
a bulwark of freedom, and British
parliamentary procedure and practice the palladium of liberty. He was
an upholder ot constitutional monarchy and had a vary real concern
for the unity of the British empire of
which he believed the crown to be
the great bond. There was, hei said,
something which appealed strongly
to   the   imagination, and which for

Story of The Colosseum
N THE Colosseum at Rome where
many hundreds of early Christians were crunched by wild
beasts undi r the sanction of an an
dent Roman government, Rome'-i
present-day government ff|cently replaced a huge wooden cross com
men-orating the martyrs. Thq cross,
originally (placed by Pope Benedict
XIV in 1749, had been absent since
1862. This great amtphitheater, shown
ln innumerable pictures, Is probably
the most familiar ruin in the world.
The Colosseum is a monument to
a highly civilized people's brutality—
a depth of brutality that ls hardly
conceivable from the point of view
of the twentieth century. The huge
structure was built deliberately io
furnish the best facilities for three
classes of spe/ctacles: fights to the
death between armed men, fights between armed beasts, and fights between men and beasts.
Gladiatorial combats had developed from customs bf primitive Roman days whe-n on the death of a

IN THE Colosseum at Rome where   hacking   at   the heads of the gladla-
many   hundreds   of early  Chris-  tors-   In    tnese    preferred positions
sat the emperor on a slightly raised
dais, and below and to the sides, senators, leading patricians and the Vestal virgins, the young -priestesses of
the Temple of Vesta, who were so
carefully nurtured and guarded by
Rome. Many a timte the thumbs of
those young women gave the flnal
signal which determined the death
of a wounded gladiator.
Next above the senators sat patricians and other citizens in a dwindling scale of importance. AH but the
topmost seats were numbered and
tickets were provided. For places

Only a little more than half of tbe
original    structure now stands,  con
stone and brick and concrete as this
elliptical grandstand of old Rome,
built for the, spectacular slaughtering of man and beast.
Begun by Vespasian, work on the
structure was continued by his son,
Titus. It was the latter wbo sacked
Jetrusalem. Twelve thousand of the
many Jews captured at that time
were set to work to complete the
gre^t building. With its dedication
ln 80 began one of the goriest chapters in the story of Roman amusements. The celebration .of is opening lasted 100 days. Thousands of
wild animals and hundreds of men
were slaughtered to make| this gigantic "Roman holiday."
The Colosseum is not quite so
large in area covered as the modern
football amphitheater. The ellptlcal
arena (named from the sand that wan
spread on its surface to absorb the
blood of its victims) is In round numbers 280 fcjet long and 180 feet
across; while the rectangular playing
space of a football field ls 300 by 260
teet. To enclose] sucb a playing
field, allowing a margin outside the
gridiron, a football amphitheater
must be 360 fept or more long - and
about 250 feet wide, Inside dimensions.
In most modern athletic amphlthea
ters the seats rise on a relatively
gentle slope and the highest are sei
dom over 60 feet above the field. In
the Colosseum the slope was steep-
approximately 46 degrees—and the
outside wall of the structure towers
160 feet above the ground, or approx-
ihately to the height of a 15 or 16-
storey office building, the outside wall
was built of great blocks of stone,
while the interior was mostly of .brick
and concrete. The outer wall was
mhde up largely of arches ln three
tiers, one above the other, and extending side by side entirely around
the building. The arches on the
ground level were numbered, and
through them the Roman populace
poured on the way to the spectacles.

necessary, ha avers, since the twenty-four hour clock
has now been introduced by the railways, post and telegraph, street car and underground companies. Now,

Unity and liberty, he believed, could
only be attained through counsels of
moderation and tolefration. For this
reason he sought, in all that pertained to differences ot opinion, to
avoid coercion and to practice) conciliation. Unity and liberty were
equally essential as underlying principles in the national and iiiiiperial
policies. Appreciating" to the full the
significance of the differences in origin of the Canadian people, Sir Wilfrid believe-d with all his heardt that
only by a profound regard for each
other's point of view ln racial, re-
could the unity of Canada be maintained; and Canadian unity was Laurier's supreme aim. In the liberty
of worship, oflanguage and custom
guaranteed to his compatrots by the
policy of the Quelbec act of 1774, and
confirmed ln the Constitutional act
of 1791, he won his flrst confidence
in the breadth ot vision of British
statesmanship. In thet autonomy ot
the proovinces of our Dominion, he
came to feel a security in the larger
project of confederation. In national autonomy, he believed, lay the secret of imperial'unity. Self-govern
ment, expanding in area as lt deveil-
(Contlnued from Page 1)
him had a great attraction ln an agglomeration of continents under the
British crown.     The firm   basis   of
the British empire, next to the Brit-*
ish crown, he believed to lie in the
conYplete    autonomy of the self-goV-
(trning units.   Addressing the    then
Prince   ot   Wales,'  now his majesty
King George, on the occasion of the
Tercentenary  celebration at  Quebec
ln 1908, Sir Wilfrid said:   "As I advance in years I appreciate the more
the wisdom of that British constitution   undijr   which I   was born and
brought up, and under which I   have
grown   old,   which   has given to the

at    the Tercentenary celebration to

Botha said:   "It ls our Intention to

More than one part of the empire has
looked to Canada in the development
of free government.
The rights of mlnoritlqs were to
Sir Wilfrid a sacred cause. Frequently I have heard him say that to
be ot the minority In both race) and
religion was, in his public life, the
cross that had been given him to'bear
At the) time he became the leader of
his party, he Is known to have asserted that it would mean much of sacrifice in the end.. Hie was thinking
of how the, real significance of larger
issues ls often lost In appeals that
ara made to prejudice and passion.
But here kt us seek th perspective
of History. We know so little of the
real significance of crosses and sacrifice. To havei been of the minority
tn raoe and religion, as Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was, and to have enjoyed, as
he did, so great a confidence on the
-part of all will, I believe, come to be
recognized as the; crowning glory of
his career. Not only ln Canada did
It help to Inspire in the breasts ot
minorities a confidence ln his advocacy of Britlah traditions and laws,
but in the larger arena ot empire, lt
gave to men of other raccjs a faith In
the Justice and freedom ot British institutions which, with less In the way
of spam-pie, they might have found it
diflltult to possess.
A§"i seek for the guiding principle! In Laurier's leadership, 1 find
them ln the; words unity and liberty.
To his mind the one was indispensable to the other. There could be. no
true unity where boubts existed aB to
liberty; and there .could be no true
liberty    without   a conscious unity.
The imperial conference of 1926
has declared the British empire; to
be a group of self-governing common
ities, equal in status and ln no way
subordinate! one to another in any
aspect of their domestic or external
affairs. Here and now, lt is interesting to rcjcall that as early as 1897, in
London, at the time of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, Laurier
spoke of the British empire as "a
galaxy of nations." Jf, as is now generally accepted, "a community of
free nations" united by acommon al;
letgiance to the crown is an accurate
description of the British empire, lt
may, I think, truthfully be said that
few, if any, entertained this conception earlier or. In its entiretyof outline, more/ clearly than Sir Wilfrid
Laurier; and that working towards
its r ealization as he did, through
good report and Ul, no man ln his day
or generation contributed more to
what wd believe will prove to be the
enduring foundation of that great
All-Important, however, as is a
right development .dn inter-imptjjrial
relations, it was not on the place he
would hold ln the building of empire,
that Sir Wilfrid's thoughts were cent
tred. If he gave thought to the matter at all, it was of the! place he would
bold in the harts of the people, ln the
hearts of the peoplei in the land that
gave him birth, and in the humble
homes with which, in his boyhood, he
was so familiar. Therq was much
about him that made one think of
Abraham Lincoln. He gave more
study to the life of Lincoln than to
the life of ay other man. "With firmness ln the right, as God gives us to
see the right" were the; words he was
fondest of quoting; and more tha?
once he madrj them words ot counsel
and advice to the rising generation.
To the young sculptor who has made
the ©portrait about to' be unveiled;
we are indebted for an interpretation
of Laurier that would most have accorded with his own wish. II Is not
the Laurier ln the early your; of his
premiership, receiving a Vuighthood
from the| world's most illustrious
queen; nor the maturer Laurier, at.
the zenith of his power; but the Lau-
rierr of years, the Laurier of the people, fighting for the right as God
gave him to see the right.
That his spirit already has inspired the youth of our land is evidenced by what we shall see In a few
moments. In a competition open to
the sculptors of the world, the flrst
place waB won by the author of the
portrait in bronze about to be un-
vetiled. It was only after the award-
was made that it was discovered the
successful competitor was a young
French-Canadian, and in his twenty
seventh year, J. Emile Brunet, born
not many miles from where Sir Wilfrid him-Belf was born. I am free to
confess that it was not without some
misgivings,  bcicause   ot  his  youth,
that Mr. Brunet was commissioned
by the government to execute the
work. On behalf of the government,
I should likcpublicly to expess t o
him today our satisfaction with the
manner in which his task has been
performed, and our high admiration
of thel statue itself. As Canadians,
we share his pride, that the honor of
executing the statue of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier now erected on Parliament
Hill should have fallen to one of
whom Sir Wilfrid himself would have
been more than proud, and who has
given to his country one more notable
example of the artistic genius of the
people of the province of Quebec.
In conclusion, as a resident of Ottawa, may 1 be permitted to say .with
what pride we of this capital city behold this statue, In the place which
has been accorded on Parliament Hill
How befitting are the the surroundings! Here are the houses of 'parliament with which Sir Wilfrid's lite
was so intimately associated; yonder
are the Laurentian hills that he so
dearly loved; antl there the gate
through which he was wont to pass.
This city was identified with his public life more closely than any other.
It contains Innumerable associations
with his name. It was here that, for
many years, he and Lady Laurier
had their home, jit was his great

one boy at the back of the room ventured to put his hand up. The doctor asked for his answer.
"A basket," said the boy.
"Correct!" cried the doctor, delighted. "Here's a boy that thinks!
Now, my lad, would you be willing
to go up on the platform and tell us
why you think it was a basket "
After a great deal of coaxing the

. Mew C.P.R. Her at Vancouver. 2. Bronte plaque uoseUed by Mayor Taylor of Vancouver.
3. Tho C.P.R. Docks aa they appeared In the early day* of thia port.
On? notable feature ot Greater
Vancouver's celebration of the
Diamond Jubilee ot Confederation—
and one that no other city in the
Dominion can boast of duplicating—
was the dedication and official opening of the new $6,000,000 Canadian
Pacific Pier B-C.
The new mammoth pier is the
second longest in the world, and was
planned with an eye to a prosperous
future when Vancouver will be one
of, if not the biggest, port on the
Pacific coast, and designed to accommodate at least two of the greatest
liners built.
It is a far cry from the first wooded
pile ocean docks built by the Canadian Pacific in the early spring of
1887 when Vancouver was a city of
stumps and possibilities to the present pier with nearly 3,000 feet of
berthing space available and accommodation for the cargoes of a dozen
of even the most modern ocean grey
hounds. Representing the last word
in modern machine construction, the
new pier is also notable for the
pleasing manner in which the practical has been combined with the
The Canadian Pacific is interested
chiefly in the trade with the Orient,
Australia and New Zealand. Although imports and exports are of a
mixed character, the most valuable
single article is silk. Silk shipments
must be transferred from boat to rail
with the least -possible delay. Facilities embodied n the construction of
this pier ensure the rapid and careful
handling of all cargoes.
While designed primarily for the
use of its own ships, the C.P.R. will
allow pier B-C to be used by the ships
of other lines. Its length of 1,140 feet
permits the docking on either side, of
the largest of the present day trans-
Pacific boats—the Empress of Canada,   640   feet   m   length—-with   a
smaller vessel. Its width of 331 feet
permits a moderate sized boat to be
docked at the off-shore end at the
same time that either or both sides of
the pier are in use.
A special feature of the construction
of the pier is that a promenade ia
constructed down each side of the ].ier
leading from the head-house over
the roofs of the freight shetls. Con
nections are made from this pro.i*x'
nade to the ships by a long gangway
so that passengers may en-bark or
disembark without hindering the
freight handling on the lower deck

The little shop-girl was reading
the newspaper on her way down
town in the subway.
i"What are, nonagenarians?" she
asked ber friend who sat beside
"I don't know," was the reply.
"Why, What about it?"
■'Well, they must be a sickly lot
Whenever I read about them they
are almost always dying."
The active mind of youth often
finds a nugget of wisdom ln a matrix
of misunderstanding. That was the
case with the little girl referred to
in J. U. H.'s Weekly. She Jumped
hastily at a wrong conclusion, but
landed on a bed rock of fact!"
"Papa, pro and con mean opposltes,
don't thep " she Inquired
"Right," said the parent.
"That must be whp thep speak of
progress and congress,' she concluded.
Early one morning last winter when
the thermometer was near zero, a
man who directs the operation of a
score of newsboys considered it a
good idea to give the boys some food
to help them combat the cold. He
invited them all into a restaurant.
"Now order what you want" he said
to them, "so you'll be able to keep
warm when you go out on the street."
And every mothers son ot them
ordered Ice cream.
"Ah,   you   are   the young man ln
question.   What's   your  name?"
"Ivan AuBzelchmmugencugtekt."
"How do you spell it?"
"As it is pronounced!" -
