Communicated.  your  the  EDITOH PUOSPECTOIt,'  '   Dear Sir:���        ��  In last week's issue of  esteemed contemporary,  tCranbrook Herald, there is, what  , is meant lo bo a description of  "The Pawnell Party" purporting to be from ii Fort Steele cor-'  respondent.   ,    , , ,.  This.person is evidently under  the impression that ho is a smart  man, but as you know, sir, most,  smart men need common sense;  in this case the common sense is  sadly lacking, or the correspondent would have verified tho  .spelling of his victim's name  " which is not, Pawnell.  ' However, that is a minor point  and not worth cavilling at, but  under a heading in a newspaper  one does expect to find some information relative to the heading; =jn this instance expectations would noti be realized, as,  altho there is-an'effusion of some  78 lines, but' very few of these  touch upon the subject of" the  ' party and, then only in a general  way, the balance being expended  on totally irrelevant matter and  the correspondent's personalex-  periences of moccasins and  whiskey.  One would gather that the correspondent views dancing in-the  light of a crime, as it "was done  at the Opera House,'" if so, there  were a great many criminals;  andrhis opinion evident' though  veiled that the ,dance should  have been held at Cranbrook is  only on a par "with the other  solecisms.  The first two paragraphs deserve an oleograph; for unadulterated impertinence they are  unique and if is a great pity that  the originator of the'phrase  "damned with faint, praise"' is  not alive to see how aptly it' fits  this atrocity.  It may be possible, that T have  mistaken tho spirit of thncontri  button, and that it is not, intend1  ed as a travesty, but if so it  should be so stated as my sense  of veiled humor is not abnormally developed.  More seriously, it is a pity  that my friend Mr. Simpson  could riot command a correspon  dent more suited to the occasion  and one a little more endowed  with a sense of courtesy.

FEU. 20. ]'.)04  Strength Of The Naval Powers.  The navies ol the world are in  a state of such progressive  dev  elopment,   that   it  is difficult al  any given time to stale  exactly  what  is   their relative strength  , In   case   of   two   rival   powers  which have a ntiinbei   ol   battle-  ships and armored cruisers under  construction, it is quite  possible  that the balance oi siren" tli   de  pends  entirely  on   llu; forwardness  of  the   work on these new  vessels.      One   nation   may   be  building upoii'a methodical plan,  while the other may be building  in a desultory fashion; in the one  cu.se the .ships may  be   within   ;i  year  of  completion,   and  iu the  other they may be two or   three  years behind   time.  If   we   estimate.!   the   relative  strength upon the  bii->is  ol   the  total number of b.iltlcships,    ar-  iiioiuil cruisers and  snout*> -lhat  is   to   say,    all   war.sliips-abo\e  1,000   .tons    displacement ��� lhat  are actually completed,   we   find  that  Great   Britain   comes first  with a total of 201 ships completed of l,nii5,000 ton? displacement  France second with !)G ships, of  D7G,000 tons displacement:   Germany   third    with 7'<i ships ,    ol  388,000  tons displacement; Russia fourth with 4.5 ships, of HI 5,-  000 tons displacement;   United  States   fifth   with   .id   ships, ol  '   29u,0U0 tons displacement;   Ttaly  .sixth with :-8;"ship&,  of 2.")9,000  tons   displacement;   and'Japan  ��� seventh with 31 ships, of 20(5,000  tons   displacement.    All    these  nav'es,  however,   have a  large  building   programme   in   hand;  and  taking thorn in their, order,  the names of the countries  and  the total tonnage of.ships under  construction     are    as    follows:  Great     Britain,"    ilii 1,000   tons;  United    States,    32 ',000     tons;  France,    180,000_ tons;    Russia.  139,000  tons;   Germany.  118.000  tons; Italy, 70.000 tons; and   Japan, 10,000 tons   *  Now it is evident that if thes'o  new ships could be completed at  once' there   would   be   a   great  change  in   the relative standing  of   the   navies,   for   the United  States has under construction a  larger aggregate of tonnage than  that of the whole of her completed navy as it stands today.   Tho  relative order of strength in such  a case and the total tonnage dis  placement would be  as follows:  Great   Britain,   1,807.000   tons;  France,     750,000   tons;   United  States, 010,000  tons;  Germany,  500,000   tons;    Russia,     499,000  tons; Italy, 9��29,000 tons;  Japan,  253,000 tons.    It   will   thus   be  seen   that   the   United     States  moves up from fifth to third position,   with   a   long   lead over  Germany.    It. is  interesting  to  note, by the way, the great preponderance of  the  strength   oi  the English-speaking naval powers, Great Britain and tho  United States      In    regard   lo   the  British navy,   ito is   noteworthy  that at her present rate of building she is greatly exceedin��   the  mark  of  strength   which she is  popularly  supposed   to have set  herseli,   namely,   that  her navy  shall equal the  combined  siren  gth  of any two continental nav  les, France, Germany, and Russia, would have 117,000 tons   to  the good at that; while a combination of the British and United  States navies would give a total  of 2.484,000  tons,   which   would  be within 10,000 tons of equaling  the total tonnage of all the other  navies  of  note   in the world including that of  Japan.    On   the  side   of    tlie   English-speaking  combination, there would be the  great   advantage af a common  tongue and great size and  spued  of   individual    ships,     while   a  world   naval   combination would  sudor from Ihe enormous  disadvantage   oi    being   hotermogon-  eous in spjoch. race, and in   the  classification   oi   its   ships.    Wo  conioss that while we had a gen-  oial impression ol tho naval predominance oi the English-speaking race, wo were   not   prepared  to find that   the  development of  the navies of   the   two   countries  had so greatly outrun that of the  rest ot the world     To 1 hese considerations may   be   added    the  tact of the incalculable strategic  advantage     that    llie   countries  possess in a chain ol coaling .sla-  tions   and   dockyards  scattered  throughout tho  high   seas,   that  would  give   them   incomparable  facilities of reluge,   repair,   and  i eploiiishmont   in  tho event ol a  world-wideconllicl. ���KciKxriKic  AaIKIiICAX.     *'  <*<  Four si"i.i;iji: a^hsimia't  niSTificr  A Business Proposition.
