In the  meantime, his duty was clear.  Tt lay in .Ihe direction taken.  Mr.; Sil'ton said that as soon ajs  the ' education clause was re  turned he told premier La.ur or  he could not suppoif if.  Sir ' Wilfrid said this all  happened , because of doing  things behind the back of a responsible minister.

HlOo  A   GREAT NAVAL  BATTLE  1 Russian and Japanese Fleets Will  Soon   Meet.  Any day now 1,1k; cable may  Hash t lie news ol' a #roal naval  bailie somewhere in the Indian  ocean. Two powoii'iil tleets are  sieaifiiajj- io meet each other, the  Ualt.ic. Ilfi'i. ol'adinirnl Rojo^t von-  sky, upon winch the hopes of llifi  Ivussiiins rest, and Ihe war-tried  -=-- battleships oi nihii\r}\l--Vogo, ihe  Jana.ne.se iiiivaI hero. The point  ol' interest at the moment is,  where will lhey meet 'i  i ,My some sirnlegists it is believed lhat the first brush will  come in the irstraits of Malacca,  or tlierealiouts. but' Togo's tlcot  is not al all likely to go there.  Lie will keep near his base, il is  thought, so'thai, no fleet action  is likely south of Formosa. He  will need lo lie near Japan, so  lhat damaged ships can be sent  safely into doc-k'. r To make it  'difficult lor Russian ships to do  this he will light south of Japan,  a   good' tliousand     miles   from  {      ct        ii  Vladivostok.'  The Russians will do one or  two things. ILither they will  ling the coast-, 'so as to be able  to intern in neutral ports should  the'iortmies of war go against  ih'om, or else they will strike  - right out across the. Pacific for  Vladivostok.' This however,-��� is  their least likely'course. >  The exact, condition of' the  Russian ships i.s not-known, and  :lthough.rumor has it that one  or two,, cruisers and - several  colliers are in a bad way. there  ��� is no definite information of any  serious mishap.  The Baltic fleet- .sailed from  Libau at I a.m.1 oh October 10 of  last year, so if has now , been at  sea for just, four months.  ��� "Wtyen tin; lleets do meet we  'shall undoubtedly witness one of  the most deeply intcresliug  dramas that have occurred in  any maritime war'of our time.  - 'fhe Russian (lee,f is practically  fho last naval hope of1 Russia,  and if it. is destroyed Russia  sinks to a naval rank which  practically wipes her off the list  of naval powers for many years  to come.  A comparison of the strength  of tho two tleets is given below:  Battleships ��� r Knia/.

'  Of the seven battleships in  this list Ihe four first named are  of the same class, and are  modern vessels. They are unquestionably powerful in every  respect. Two were launched in  1901 and two in l(.)D2. They may  be compared not unfavorably  with i lie British Formidable  typo of battleship, for. although  the latter have a displacement of  about L',500. tons to their advantage; the armament; is similar in  the two-classes. With regard to  protection the Russian ships  have a complete belt, and the  principal 'armor is of the same  thickness in-both types, but the  Russians are lacking,'somewhat  in"the   protection    afforded   to  ��� their secondary batteries and to  the channels lor their provision  of ammunition.,'- The. weight of.  armor carried by the ships of  each class is estimated to be  about 4000 tons.',     ,    ,      '  Opposed to these vessels there  is the Japanese fleet ' which  Admiral Togo has so ably commanded, ji.ikI of which the following is ii siatenient���:'��� I  Bat-t-les.liips--Asliai Shikishima  15,000 tons: Mikasa,, 15,200;  Yasbima. l2,5iUO: Fuji, 12,300.
