Laurer's Policy Provides for
s Built and Maintained by Canada
Sir Wilfrid Laurier last Thursday announced to parliament bis
amendment to the government's
naval proposals. Sir Wilfrid's policy
provides for a navy built in Canada,
manned in Canada, maintained by
Canada, paid for by Canada, the
burden taken from the British taxpayer and placed upon the stnUvurt
shoulders of Canada; a navy that
leaves the British squadrons free for
home defense, a poliey that gives
Canada ber chance to perforin her
duty as a self respi o ii g young
British nation; a policy tbat im-
poses no new burdens upon tbe fleet
of Britain; that imposes no conditions of vexatious overseas meddling
in imperial foreign affairs, nor drags
Canada into European complications; a policy tbat expresses Canada's one-bearted devotion and loyalty to the empire.
Tbs Borden policy imposes upon
Great Britain a new burden of

need for home defense.
Tbe Laurier policy replaces Britain's ships recalled to home sta
tions, and assumes tbe burdens Borden would impose upou British taxpayers.
Laurier I policy develops a Canadian marine, a national spirit and a
great industry,
Borden's policy leaves nothing in
tbe country. "It strikes no roots."
It does nothing for the empire tbat
needs doing
Laurier's policy is the climax of a
lifelong devotion to Canada and the
empire. It is tbe product of the
truest Canadianism, the soundest
basis of empire unity tnd continuity

instructions tu amend the same in the
following particulars, namely: To
strike out all the winds after Clause
A and substitute therefor the following:
The memorandum paepared by the
board of admiralty on the general naval situation of the empire and communicated tu this house by the Right
Honorable, the Prime Minister, on
December 5, shows that several of the
most important foreign powers have
adopted a definite policy uf rapidly increasing their naval strength.
That this condition has compelled
the United Kingdom to concentrate
its naval forces in home waters, involving the wilhdiawal of ships from
the outlying portions of the empire.
That such witl d awal reuders it
necessary that Canada,withuut further
delay, should enter actively on a permanent policy of naval defence.
That any measure of Canadian aid
to imperial naval defence which does
nut embody a permanent policy if
participation by ships owned, manned
and maintained by Canada and contemplating construction as soon as
possible iii Canada, is not an adequate
or sptisfactury expression of theaspir-
uliuus nf the Canadian people in regard to the naval science, and is nut
an assumption by Canada of her fair
share in the maintenance of the naval
strength of the empire.
This house regrets to learn of tho
intention uf the government to iii

by Canada of a permanent naval
It is the opinion of this house that
measures should be taken at the pres
ent session to give iff ct speedily to
the policy embodied in the navel ser
vice aot of 1910,  passd   pursuant to
by this house in Msrc'i, 1909
This house further ie uf the opinion
that increase in power and nobility uf
the imperial navy by the addition by
Canada under the ubuye act of two
fleet units tu be stationed nn the Atlantic and Pucific coasts of Canada, respectively, rather than by a contribution of money or ships, is a policy best
calculati d to afford relief to the United
Kingdom in rjspect of the burden of
imperial naval defence and in the
words uf the admiralty memorandum,
to "restore greater freedum to tho
movements of tho British squadrons in
overy sea and directly protect the security of dominion.," and that the
government uf Canada should take
such steps as shall lead tu the nc »»
plishment uf this purpose as speedily
as possible.

method of utilizing tbe surplus and

system fruits and vegetables were
kept fresh for an indefinite period by
a new method of evaporation. It

Tliere were now half a dozen plants
in successful operation in the United States. Stock would be issued
to the shareholders in the five plants.
After that no more stoek would he

a plant, the company would ask a
sufficient subsidy to install it, as
a ulant would be worth thutaniount
to any locality by providing nu absolutely certain market for all kinds
of farm products, and thus enhance
the value ef tbe land. The company would pay as high, or higher,
for farm products as a cannery.
Tbeir system was protected by patents. If tbey were successful in
organizing a company, they wonld
install a $-25,000 plant bere. It

Give England Siberian Climate
Great Britain is taking seriously
the fanciful schem ,' Mr. Barker „
Brooklyn Inventor, to deflect the Quit
stream by a breakwater ott the coast
of Newfoundland. Newspapers are
asking what the British government
ia fl"'w to lo about lt.
There can be no doubt, says the
London Evening Press that serious
trouble will follow any attempt to
•ob' us of what little comfort remains
in our wretched climate.
It Is true England's loss will bc a
ealn to a part of the British Empire,
for Canada will get tho benefit of a
change In the Atlantic currents, but
that ls small comfort to Britons who
wlM'have to choose between a Siberian climate and emigration.
The plan which would cost about
J200.000.000 is to build a breakwater
200 miles long on the eastern coast,
thus deflecting the icy currents from
Labrador. The Gulf stream would
then be free to run north, "conferring
upon "The Mother of Snows," a nd
lant climate like that of France, r ie
cold current would then turn south and
refresh the parched shores of Africa.
Meanwhile England has the cheerful prospect of getting a climate Uk-.
Labrador, which is in the same latitude.

More About
The Loading Platform
■The present generation ot Western farmer; will neter know the
difficulties anl vexations experienced by the!:, predecessors ln the
earlier years when no one-could get a carload ot grain shipped la
bulk except by loading lt through an elevator The system forced
the majority ot farmers to sell tielr grain to tbe elevator owneri
at arbitrary prices, and oft tlmas to submit to Ueavy dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution of cai'B as fixed by the Grain Act. and the use of the
loading plattorm, provluo faclllths which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment in the disposal ot his grain, and the highest
market prices at time of sale. 3very farmer therefore, should more
and more endeavor to use the loading platform Ir shipping his grala
to the terminal elevators. It is the safeguard ot the farmers' free-
dorn in disposing ot hla grain to the hest advantage for himself. If
farmers refrain from using the loading platform freely, it might result ln Its being don: away with, because railway companies antl
elevator owners are Btrongly opposed to it. It is easy to understand
why elevator people desire tlie loading platform abolished. The railway people oi their part Bay it delays the loading of care and helps to
ensure car shortage. This we know tn be nonsense, because frequently after cars are loaded, whether with grain, eoal, lumber, o»
other merchandise, they are eld. tracked for days and even weeks
Instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. I It ls engine

be allowed at tho end of this period
if required, and stop-overs are permitted at most points en route.
Besides the offering of extraordinary cheap rates, the Canadian Northern Is able to add another Inducement to the intending traveller ln the
way of a chotco of routes. These
are as follows: Through Winnipeg-
through Port Arthur—by way of Duluth and Chicago—or lastly via St.

and tho ordinary fare. Tickets are
good for five months' limit and will
be on sale from Nov, 10.
The company lias a great reputation

After Twenty Years of Pile Torture
Relief and Cure Came With
You take no risk and you make no
experiment whon you uso Dr. Chase's
Ointment for piles. Many doctors
still cling to tlie Idea that nothing but
an operation will effect n cure. But
operations are expensive aud dangerous, and often fall In their results.
Borne have been cured by Dr. Chase's
Ointment after operations had failed.
Dr. Chase's Ointment truly has a
wonderful record ae a cure for piles
and all Itching skin diseases. Here
is a caBe which was reported recent-
Mr. John P. Marshall, 11 Barnes
road, St. John'B, Ntld., writes:—"For
upwards of twenty years I was troubled terribly with itching piles; at
times so bad that I was obliged to lay
up, unable to attend to business.
"I tried many treutments without
bonoflt, until I accidentally read of
Dr. Chase's Ointment, and found at
last a euro by using this ointment. 1
only used one box und part of a second one when I was completely cured,
and havo hnd no return of the piles.
That waa eighteen months ago, nnd
needless to say, I attribute this cure
to Dr. Chase's Invaluable Ointment."
Many sufferers from piles have tried
ao many scores of treatments that
thoy cannot believe that euro Is possible. In order to convince the skeptical wo nre always willing to send a
sample box freo to nnyono who encloses a two-ecut stump to pay postage.

There is a crooked instrument in
Australia commonly known an the
boomerang. There is an equally
crooked Canadian boomerang revealed
in the Siakatchewan legislature a few
days ago which rivals the Australian
weapon for the precision with which
it comes back to the man who hurled
it. The particular case in question
arises from a political speech delivered in Montreal by the Honorable
Robert Rogers, who rejoices in the
title of minister of public works. It
might be mentioned that hia Manitoba
followers also rejoice, but that has
nothing to do with the present sub
jeot. In the speech referred to, Mr.
Rogers, pardon, Hln. Mr. Rogers, declared that theSiskatchewan election
.was won by tha government through
the corruption of the aliens. The
speech made quite a sensation at. the
time, aud the Tory press gloated over
the details. Now for the boomerang
qualities of that speech. Attorney-
General Turgeon, of Saskatchewan,an-
nounced in the legislature that he
held a number of affidavits which
testified that at least four aliens were
corrupted and influenced to vote in
spite of the fact that they had no
right to do so. This might seein to
bear out Mr. Rogers—there it is again,
Hon. Mr, Rogers—in his contention,
but it turns out that these aliens
were put en the list at the instance of
a Conservative candidate, D. J. Wylie,
The special committee which investigated Mr. Ro—, Hon.  Mr.  Rogers'
statements, found the corruption
sought, but wag able to exonerate
the Scott government from all blame:
Now, Mr, Wylie stands accused, and
he refuses to be vindicated except by
a judicial committee. Premier Scott
makes the suggestion that the member
foi Maple Creek has reasons of his
own for not desiring undue publicity,
an-J there appears to I e something in
what the premier says. Under the
circumstances there is no doubt but
the Honorable Mr Rogers will be re
quested by Saskatchewan Conserva
tivei to remain silent in future.—

protect Canadian interests without receiving any other return for the sacrifice of blood and treasure that would
be involved than imperialistic ap-
planse. And this is to be Canada's
proud destiny that we hear su much
about!—Victoria Times.
The naval policy advocated by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier in the house of com
mons on Thursday is the same as that
adopted by Australia. It is a logical,
permanent policy conceived in broad
statesmanship aud in the full appreciation of Canada's rap dly growing importance in the empire. Reduced to
the simplest basis, it means that Great
Britain, having been compelled to
withdraw her fleets from overseas, the
Dominions should relieve ner of that
burden.—Victoria Times.
Those who faver a contribution as
Mr. Borden proposes now declare that
the United States oan be depended
upon to protect the Canadian Pacilic
coast if it were in danger of an attack
from an Oriental power. In fact, uo
less an imperialist than Captain dive
Phillipps-Wolley suggested this at the
recent Navy League meeting. "You
can not," he said, "break the blood tie
between these two Anglo-Saxon races"
(meaning Canada and the United
States). Everybody knows that intervention by the United States in
such circumstances would be probabl y
followed by the absorbtion of the Pacific coast province, or a considerable
part of it, into the union. A year ago
the same so-called imperialists fought
the reciprocity agreement because
they said it would lead to annexation.
One wonders how, in the sacred name
of imperialism, people ean have nerve
enough to expect the United States to
A Hybrid Naval Policy
Oh, you Tory jingoes Is thai tho
amount of the sacrifice you are prepared to make? You are ready to
furnish admirals, rear ahmiials, com
modules, captains, ollicers of all
grades, plumes, feathers and gold lace,
but you leave it tb England to supply
the bone and sinew of those ships.
You say that these ships shall bear
Canadian names. That will be the
only thing Canadian about them.
You will hire some one to do your
work, In other words, you are ready
to do anything except the fighting
Is that the true policy? It is a
cross between jingoism and national
ism. Unless I mistake the spirit of
thi. Canadian people, if they are true
to their ideals, if they are true to
their own blood, they will not be satisfied with this hybrid policy.—Sir
Wilfrid Laurier.
Let the People Decide
I would like the honorable gentlemen who form the government to
bring in their redistribution bill. Let
us put it through and let us go to tbe
If that redistribution is fair we will
assist you in putting it through, and
we will go to the country and let the

How A  Sufferer  From  Sciatica
Found Permanent Relief.
Fierce darting pnlnB, pains like red
hot needles being driven through the
flesh In the thigh, perhaps down thc
legs to tho ankles—that's sciatica
None but tho victim can realize tbe
torture ot this trouble, and many suffer from lt hopelessly ln the belief
that It cannot be cured. This ls a
mistake; sciatica Is a nerve trouble,
and lf the starved nerves are properly
nourished with rich, red blood the
trouble will soon disappear. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make just the new,
pure blood needed to feed the sciatica nerve and drive out the racking
pain. It has been proved over and
over again that they can do this and
we offer now tho following additional
piece of evidence. Mr. E. II. Pas-
torlous, Harrow, Ont., Bays: "Some
years ago I was terribly afflicted with
sciatica, starting ]usl iu my hip and
then extending through tho leg to
the foot. At the time I was attacked
I was away from home and had to be
brought homo on a mattress
ln a spring waggon, nnd the agony
ot tho trip was almost more than I
could endure. Hcachlng homo 1 was
not able to sit up und remained ln
bed for six weoks. The doctor did
not help ino and 1 tried a number ot
medicines recommended by neighbors. I paid $5.00 a bottle for one
preparation, but It wus no better than
tho rest, and I began In think tliere
was no cure for mo. While suffering
this untold misery Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills were rebomnflmdod, and my
wife got me a supply, lu the course
of a few weeks I began to feel better
nnd could get around with the aid of
a cane. I kept on taking tlio Pills
until all the pair, disappeared and I
felt as well as ever 1 did. I have
never had an attack of the trouble
since, and although I am now t>5
years of age 1 feel as vigorous as I
did at 40, all of which I uscrlbo to
Dr. Williams' Pink PIMb."
lf you are Buffering from sciatica or
any nerve or blood trouble, begin to
cure yourself to-day by the uso of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which will assuredly do for .-nu what they havo done
for others, lf you give them n fair
trial. Sold by all medicine dealers
