P., Editor-in-chief  ___?'*.*/ve  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, DECEMBER 13, 1912.  ���������Aesi  N0TF8 FROM OTTAWA  ���������__���������        r  (By Arthur R. Ford, Special Correspondent)  OTTAWA.���������The announcement of Premiei Borden 's naval proposals has of course over-shadowed  everything at the capital. There is nothing else  which is talked of or dreamt of. The premier  made a wonderful speech in presenting his plan���������  one of the greatest speeches, if not the greatest,  ever heard at Ottawa. It was a great occasion,  marking the dawn of a new era for Canadian and  imperial politics, and the premier thoroughly  appreciated the responsibility which weighed  upon his shoulders. He spoke slowly, deliberately  and impressively, and he was eloquent by the  earnestness of his manner rather than by any  brilliant flights of oratory. He marshalled his  facts in splendid array, his arguments Were irrefutable and there was no man who heard him  make his historic utterance who was not thoroughly convinced that it was time Canada should  assume a larger share of the burdens of empire, no  matter whether he agreed with the premier's  methods or not.  When the Premier completed his brilliant peroration there was a scene unparalleled in the  history of the house. The house of commons is not  often 'carried off its feet. It is a staid old body.  But Thursday was too, much for it. No sooner  had the Premier taken his seat than the house  burst into a storm of cheering. The Conservatives  sprang to their feet, banged desks, waved handkerchiefs and cheered for many minutes. ''Rule  Britannia" and*'God Save the King "were started  at the same moment but the National Anthem, led  by Joseph Ramville, one of the Quebec Nationalist  members, predominated. The opposition members,  the galleries, the Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia who were on the floor of the house,  rose to their feet and joined in the swelling chorus  of the National Anthem. That is rose but one,  ' Hon. Frank Oliver, ex-minister of the interior.  He alone sat glum and glowering in his seat. He  was a conspicuous figure, the cynosure of all eyes,  as he sat there on the front benches of the opposition, while on one side of him stood the Premier  and on the other Hon. Charles Murphy. It waa  the only janring note in a magnificent tribute to  Mr. Borden's statesmanship. Oliver sat through  the whole of the refrain, hia faee flushed with  anger, bia brows knit in sullen obstinacy as he  settled himself lower *n his bench. Hi* notion is  the talk of ihe capital. Sir. 01 ver has attempted  no explanation. It is doubtful if he can���������it waa  inexplicable and incomprehensible.  / The text of the announcement has already  appeared in the daily papers. However, it  might be well to sum up briefly the main  features of bis palicy which were as follows:  1. Canada presents to the Imperial Government three Preadnaughts of the latest class, the  cost to be $35,000,000.  2. These ships are to be maintained and controlled aa part of the Royal Navy.  3. If at any time we establish a Canadian unit  of the Royal Navy, these ships may be recalled  to form a part of that unit.  4. The three Canadian Preadnaughts are to  bear historic names associated with the history of  Canada.  5. A Canadian minister will be resident in  liondon, and will be a permanent member of the  Imperial Defence Committee, and no important  step in British foreign policy will be taken without coniultng theCanadan minster.  6. The Brtish Admiralty will place orders for  the constructon of small cruisers in Canada and  the Canadian Government will, for a time at least-, -  bear part of the additional cost due to construe-  . tion in this country. The ship-building industry  will be fostered and plants establshed on both the  Atlantc and Pacific oceans.  The effect on the Pacific Coast will be that with  the additional strength Canada is giving to the  home navy the squadron in the east which in  recent years has been seriously reduced will be  able to be increased to some semblance of its oid  standard. How much Britain ,has been forced to  reduce its naval force on the overseas stations  was strikingly pointed out by the memorandum  prepared by the Admiralty. In 1902 there were  160 British vessels on the overseas stations against  only 76 today. As the Premier said: "Is'it not  time that the former condition should in some  measure be restored? Upon our coasts, both  Atlantic and Pacific, powerful squadrons were  maintained twelve years ago. Today the flag is  not shown on either seaboard. I am assured that  the aid which' we propose will enable special arrangements to be consummated that without  courting disaster at home an effective fleet of  . battleships and cruisers can be established in the  Pacific and a powerful'squadron can periodically  visit our Atlantic seaboard and assert onee more  (Continued on Outside Column)  m  Vote for T.

Mr.  The NitVy Bill  Borden Tables a Statement Prepared by the British Government Indicating  1   Britain's Present Position.  COMMENTS ON LIVE  By Alex.  M--l������Vl    **_  Ottawa, Dec. 6.���������In the presence of  the Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia, who occupied seats on  the floor of the House, and probably  the largest crowd that ever taxed the  galleries, Premier Borden promptly at  3.10 this afternoon rose to Introduce  his Naval Bill. The leading feature of  the bill is tbe proposal to ask parliament to vote S35.000.000 to His Majesty for the buildihg of three or the  most modern Dreadnoughts afloat,  these to be a part of theJBrltish navy  and to be used for the common defence of the Empire. Other essential  features of the Premier's announcement were that he had received assurances that if at any time Canada  decides to establish a navy of her  own, or a unit ot the British navy, the  s-lps shall be recalled; that arrangements will be made to give Canadians  the opportunity to serve as officers  and men on the Dreadnoughts which  Canada is giving; that the ships will  be built under the supervision of the  Admiralty in the United Kingdom for  the reason tbat at present there are  no adequate facilities for constructing  them iu Canada.  In connection with the latter announcement, Premier Borden informed  the House that the additional cost of  constructing the three Dreadnoughts*  in Canada would be In the vicinity ot  $12,000,000.  The bill was then given a first reading and the House adjourned.  ���������ritieh Memorendum.  Premier Borden tost of all qpotel  the British Government's meaeraa*  data os the European -aval situation  as follows:  "Despatch from the  for tfei'^CMMMl^      _  General. ������       \  Downing Street. Oct. Sir, 1912.  Sir,���������  1���������-I have the honor to transmit to  Your Royal Highness the accompany-  lag copy at a memorandum relating to  the requirements of the naval defenoe  ot the Bmp!re.  _���������-This document has been' prepared by the Admiralty on the instruction of His Majesty's government in  compliance with the request of Mr.  Borden, with a view to presentation  to the Dominion parliament, if and  when the Dominion Ministers deem It  necessary.   (Signed) L. Harcourt.  l���������Tbe Prime Minister of Canada  has invited Hla Majesty's government  through tbe Board of Admiralty to  prepare a statement of the present  and Immediate prospective require*  ments of the naval defenoe ot the Empire for presentation to the Canadian  Parliament if the Dominion Cabinet  deem It necessary.  The Commissioners of the Admiralty are prepared to comply and to  supplement in a form which can be  made public, the confidential communications and conversations which  have passed between the Admiralty  and Ministers of the Dominion Parliament during the visit to the United  Kingdom. The Admiralty set the  greatest store by tbe important material, and still more" Important assistance, which it is within the power  of Canada to give to maintain British  naval supremacy on the high seas, but  they think lt necessary to disclaim sible hazards the safety ot the Empire.  roer*  any intention, however, of putting  pressure upon Canadian public opinion or of seeking to influence the  Dominion Parliament In a decision  which clearly beleongs solely to Canada.  Comparison of Fleets.  2���������-The power of the British Empire  to maintain the superiority on the sea,  ���������vhich is essentially to its security,  must obviously be measured from time  to time by reference to the other  naval forces of tbe world, and such a  comparison does not Imply anything  unfriendly in intention or in spirit to  any other Power or group of Powers.  From ths point of view tho development of the German fleet during the  last fifteen years Is the most striking  feature of the naval situation today.  The development has* been authorised  by five successive enactments, namely,  the fleet laws of 1898,1900,1908, 1912.  These laws cover tbe period up to  1920.  Whereas in 1898 the German fleet  consisted of nine battleships (excluding coast defence vessels), three large  cruisers, twenty-eight small cruisers,  113 torpedo boats and 25,000 men,  maintained at an annual cost of $6,000,  000, the full fleet ef 1920 will consist  Of forty-one battleships, twenty large  cruisers, forty small cruisers, *l44 torpedo boats, seventy-two submarines  and 101,500 men, Wtested to be  maintained at aa anneal ooat of **3,  000,000.  \ Theee flgures. however, give no reel  ids* ot the ad*r*^^t)if, stipend  cost of snipe haa  daring, the period,  creasing their  has systematically  SsiaHrs-tea. w_i__v  mWmmWmWSmmm  and costly modern vessels. Neither  does the money provided by the estimates for the completed law represent  the Increase In cost properly attributable to the German navy, for many  charges borne on British naval funds  are otherwise defrayed in Germany,  and the German navy comprises such  a large proportion of new ships that  tbe cost of maintenance and repair Is  considerably less than In navies which  have been longer established.  Gem-soy's Naval Expensfon.  3���������The naval expansion of Germany  has not been preserved by British  naval increases. The German government has repeatedly declared that  their naval policy has not been influenced by British action, and the following figures speak for themselves:  In 1906 Great Britain was building  four capital ships and Germany two.  In 1906 Great Britain reduced to three  capital ships and Germany Increased  to three. In 1907 Great Britain built  three capital ships and Germany built  three. In 1908 Great Britain further  reduced to two her capital ships and  Germany increased to four.  Great Britain's Position.  It was not until the efforts of Great  Britain to procure the abatement or  retardation of naval rivalry had failed  for three successive years that the  Admiralty were forced in 1909, upon  a general review of the naval situation  to ask Parliament to take exceptional  measures to secure against all pos-  In that year, eight capital ships were  laid down in dreat Britain and two  others were provided by the Commonwealth of Australia and the Dominion  of New Zealand respectively, a total  of ten.  German Navy Law.  4���������In the spring of the present year  the fifth German navy, law was assented to by the Reichstag. The main  feature of that law is not the In*  crease In -the new construction of  capital ships, though that Is Import*  ant, but rather the increase in the  striking force of ships of all classes  which will be immediately available  at all seasons of the year.  A third squadron of eight oatteships  will be created knd maintained ln full  commission as part of the active  battle fleet. Whereas, according to  the unamended law, the active battle  fleet consisted of seventeen battleships, four battle or large armored  cruisers, and twelve small crulsers;-it  will ln the near future consist of  twenty-five battleships, eight battle or  large armored cruisers and eighteen  small cruisers, and whereas at present, owing to the system of recruitment which prevails in Germany, the  German fleet is less fully mobile during the winter than the" summer  months, lt will through the operation  of ,tbis law, not only be increased In  strength, bat rendered much more  ye-dllr .available,.

In 1898 the officers and  men of the German navy amounted to  25,000. Today that figure has reached  66,000. The new law adds 65,000 officers and men, and makes a total la  1920 of 101,500.  New Construction.  The new construction under the law  prescribes the building of three additional battleships, one to be begun  next year, one In 1916 and two small  cruisers, of which tbe date has not  yet been fixed. The date of tbe third  battleship bas not been fixed. It hss  been presumed to be later than tbe  six years which are in view. The  cost of these increases in men and in  material .during the next six years Is  estimated as $10,500,000 spread over  that period above the previous estimates.  The facts set forth above were laid  before the House of Commons on tbe  twenty-second day of July, 1912, by  the First Lord of the Admiralty.  . 5���������Tbe effect of the new German  Navy Law is to produce a remarkable  expansion of strength and readiness.

This sounds like a fairy  tale, but "Pelorus Jack," a_ the dolphin is called, has been honored by  Order-in-Council passed especially for  his protection/and he is known to the  skipper of every coasting steamer ln  New Zealand waters. The log-books of  British seamen have recorded his history at least as far back as 40 odd  yeara, but the Maoris affirm that old  "Kai Kai-awaro," as they call him, was  alive more than 200 years ago. when  he guided their ancestors to safe waters and befriended them in time of  need, "Here he comes" is the cry as  the pilot fish of Pelorus Sound comes  darting through the waves eager to  m������et his old steamship friend, showing his long dorsal fin, and sometimes  leaping like a porpoise right out of  the water, as if in sheer joy. He  makes straight for the steamer's bows,  and-round about and under the bows  he plays, poire times flashing ahead so  swiftly that the eye can scarcely follow him. The passengers crowd tbe  forecastle head, and those who have,  cameras take more o> less successful  "snaps" of the nah. For several miles  the white dolphin accompanies the  steamer as she heads towards, the  French Pass; swimming along with  her as if loth to leave her. Off Clay  Point, or Ana-Totp the "Cave of  Blood," a conscpicuous headland on  the western s'ide of the entrance to  Pelorus Sound, he parts from his big  friend and darts away homeward  bound. According to the Maoris,"Jack"  lives In a cave, just at the *entrance  to the Sound, and he seldom goes  many miles away from bis home un*  less pressed for food supplies, which  consistchlefly of cuttle fish or octopus.

The recall of Mr. James Bryce as  British .ambassador to the United  States will be a matter of keen regret on the part of the American people, with whom he has become popular  both because of his One scholarship  snd his broad democratic views. It  swears .that bis retirement would  not probably have taken place hut for  certain Incidents In tbe relationship  of tbis countrq and Groat Britain,  which the' latter nation regaros ss  diplomatic mistakes. The first was tbe  failure in the Senate of the unrestricted arbitration treaty agreed upon by  Mr. Bryce and the president. Tils  was keenly regretted by air. Bryce  and other friends of international  peace. Next was the Panama Canal  toll: issue. Congress adopted a measure directly contrary to the British In*  terpretation of the Hay-Pauncefote  treaty, and a large part of the British  press blamed the ambassador for not  actively and openly Opposing such legislation���������though usage does not permits diplomat to make any public expression concerning pending legislative questions. Added to this Was the  fact that he favored the Canadian reciprocity treaty adopted by Congress  but rejected by Canada.  Everybody's doing it-Who's doiiigit?  We are doing it-Doing what ?

The watch and  then a ring went, but because the time  keeper contained his initials and the  ring was the property of Mrs. Flumerfelt, the holdup man gave them back  again.  He ripped open Mr. Flumerfelts vest  and seized some paper's, but gave these  bask as well, with the command for  M r. Flumerfelt to deliver his billhook  at once  or get  knocked  down.

The Squamish Valley is situated on  the Pacific Coast, some forty miles  north of the thriving city Of Vancouver, and is connected with Howe  Sound, where a daily, steamboat service from the above named city affords  the necessary transportation.  t This valley runs in a northerly direction for some forty miles, and is from  one to three miles wide. It is drained  by the Squamish river, which flows  into the Sound at Newport. ,6n either  side of the valley are great ranges of  mountains, the home of the Colur an  or coast deer, the black, cinnamon and  grizzly bear; the mountain goat and  the bald-faced bear are also found in  many places. The mountain lion or  tbe cougar, also afford interesting  sport to those who capture them.  'Twas the second Monday morning  in November that my companion and I  had gathered our equipment and  boarded the steamer for Newport,  where we were safely landed. A/ter  an hour's waiting we were met by the  auto-stage, by means of which we  reached the boarding house some miles  up the valley, where we stopped for  the night. -. /  Next morning's seven o'clock breakfast call found us in line at the well  filled table, and soon ail present  seemed filled, too.  It had rained all night,, and continued as our stage arrived at 8.3d,  when we loaded and were off, being]  joined by Charlie and the driver;!  Willie the kid, who promptly proceeded to work his passage by urging  Beach and Ben to shake the walk and  show, us how they could trot. But all  his efforts were in vain until Charlie  cut a maple persuader, the application  of which caused Beach, and Ben to step  up some.  The road up the valley is provided  by the Government, and in the rainy  season is not in very good shape, especially the Indian Reserve of nine  miles. Three miles op we were  joined by three also ambitious hunters. There being only two seats and  no cover to the wagon, somebody bad  to walk, and on we went, meanwhile  the rain ceasing not to drench and  soak us In spite of our slickers. By  patience and perseverance,, in the  hands of three drivers the weary  horses covered the fifteen or more  miles to our stopping place, a neat  four-roomed cottage! for wbicb we bad  previously arranged, and in which we  proceeded to set up stove and flre up.  As the darkening shadows fell we  were good and ready for our dinner,  soon after which we went to bed,  sober and sleepy.. Yes, sober sure, for  we never allow liquor in our supplies.  Wednesday morning it was yet raining, so we fixed up tables, cupboards,  etc., fbr our use. The weather clearing at noon, we were off down the  valley till nearly dark. Returning we  hunted wood for fit, got our meal,  and settled down for the nlgbt, the  weather promising fairer. And so it  was, as we were off next morning soon  after daybreak, and started to climb  the mountains at 7.15. Up and up we  went, ledge after ledge, until it looked  almost impossible, when I said to iny  companion, "can we make it?" "Yes,  see that, ladder?" And among the  many God-in-Nature-placedm ladders,  man had found it necessary to place  one in order to scale the cliff. Soon  we came to an immense projecting  rock with passage on either side; so  we separated to meet higher up. As  I carefully climbed on upward, I  thought surely tbere is here what we  came for, and keeping a sharp lookout, I spied a two point spiked buck  showing his head over a point of rock.  My' gun spoke,, and he answered ba-a  as he went headlong down the trail  below me. We quickly cared for him,  and proceeded upward satisfied with  the first hour's work of the day. As  we proceeded we were favored by a  glance at two or three at different  times in the distance. One was a  magnificent buck specimen of coast  deer, and he seemed to be well able  to keep out of our range. Finding a  sunny spot on the rock by a running  stream of "aqua pura," we sat and  ate our lunch. Oh, how such places  remind one of Elijah at the brook  Cherith. From the top of a higher  than usual rock I looked away down  the ravine, where a lively brooklet  flowed, and up again the other side  were higher still the snow clad mountains, which seemed to say, "come  over and see us; we are higher yet."  Quietly climbing out on the crest of  a moss covered rock, I saw below me,  in good range, a pair of does basking  in the sun, it being Just one o'clock.  One stood broadside to me, and the  other behind a tree facing me. I took  the former-first, and the latter as she  swung to the right. I hit InHhe left  shoulder, and she plunged down tbe  trail. Over, up and down the rocks  we went as we trailed and tumbled  them over a mile to the place of our  yyaim  Mt 111 11 ***** 1*4* I* I* *****  Fraser Avenuel  ascent, where we left them till next  day to get a vehicle. Supper over, we  were off for a cougar hunt. By using  a carbide lamp, and flashing the light  about on a real dark night, the eyes  of a cougar , bear or cat are very easily discerned. So we got in range of  the run-way of such and waited. Soon  we heard something coming, and were  rewarded by a glimpse, just for an  insant, of a\afs eyes as it passed behind a big tree, and was not Listen,  again a cracking sound;' yes, again.  And. as we turned a little to closer  look, with a bound and,a roar and. a  crash fell a dead tree. In due time  we wended our way to our humble  domicile to slumber-sweetly through  the night, and dream of all kinds of  game, of course, thus ending one of  the finest days we could ask for.  Friday morning brought again the  copious showers to somewhat clearer  afternoon, but we were off early to  seek tbose we. saw yesterday in the  distance, but were forced by the lapse  of time to be satisfied with the former's booty as our burden homeward.  Say! It might surprise you to see  t_e way we just twice a day can stowe  away the bread and beans, venison,  rice and mush (porridge, too) between  with potatoes, jam and maple syrup;  buck cakes, oat cakes and nut cakes,  too, With cocoa and milk to help along.  Then a grouse comes for a change,  and is very fine.  Monday the weather ceases not to  be a soaker . However, away we go up  the Ash Sleugh to Goat Mountain,  crossing the river*) on fallen trees.  Up we climbed, my companion being  impelled by a desire to procure a  mountain goat. Rough and steep the  way, but up* it is, and up we went.  Carefully gaining the cre_t of a.rugged  flat, he got in range of a very fine  specimen of a barren doe, which he  quickly killed and entralled, while I  made a circuit in search of the mate,  but he was not to be found. We continued' the search, in which time the  water-laden bushes slapped their burden on ub if we dared to disturb them,  but they let us pull hard, while they  firmly clung to the big roots: The  abundance of rain makes going very  slippery, resulting in my ankle becoming badly sprained. The rain and  milder weather caused tbe river to.be!  raised a foot today, through which we  must' wade in several places. Weary  and wet we met darkening shadows at  hom$ again, and we got busy wltb*our  evening meal, after which we were  ready to retire for the night. Some  pesky dog got in under the bouse by  way of a hole unobserved, and stole  the shoulders of our venison as it  hung in the shed. Some dogs are useful.  ���������������  Saturday my "companion shot some  grouse between shower times'.  Sunday we spent quietly about tbe  bouse. Having found some good books  such as Moses, David and Elijah, by  F. B. Meyer, the day was soon gone.  H<et the weather be foul or fair, rain  or shine, my companion seems not to  care, but has a good time. He Is an  ingeniously busy fellow���������a bachelor,  too, by the way, and well worthy of  promotion to the Benedictal ranks,  and she who may be fortunate enough  to share life with him will find much  of that of which true men are made.  Tuesday my sprained ankle kept me  quiet, and my companion's effortB  were in vain, except that a few grouse  fell to the call of his gun. And yet it  rained, Wednesday being no exception  in this regard to the many days of  rainfall. One of the settlers here  calls it six weeks of rainy weather already this season. But then, of  course, lt don't wet. Manitoba says.  "it's cold, but you don't feel it"; Alberta, "it's windy, but you don't  mind"; so B. C. may well say, "it fains,  but it's not wet."  Thursday the rain keeps coming,  just like daily showers of unasked for  blessings. My companion, being an  enthusiastic hunter, goes off alone  for the day, returning ere It is dark  empty-handed, declaring the wet to be  unpleasant even for the nimble deer  to'be out in.  Supper over, and our usual evening  games also while breakfast porridge  cooked, we were soon sound asleep.  Friday my companion rolled out before five with goat blood in his eye,  and ere it was daylight he was off to  the far away spots among the snow-  topped skyscrapers. Oh, yes, it  rained yet. Say! I got a scrap of rib  left by that hungryvdog and tied it on  top of a big stump, for the ravens of  course, and I got a crack fixed in the  shed, some sixty yards away to poke  my rifle through. By and by I sat  reading, when croak, croak they went.  I got busy, and after a search saw two  black rascals away up on top of a dry  stub, well out of range. Ere I could  get a place to fire, they got uneasy  and away. I was inside and out of  sight except a moment at the window. I  It cleared at 12, and off I went for  (Continued on Page 7)  e****** 11****** Ml I'l' M IU'  The high cost of living may lie  equalized by careful buying ot' your  supplies for kitchen and table.

Premier Borden's Naval Bill,  providing for three Dreadnoughts  at a primary expense of $35,000,000  gives general satisfaction both in  Canada and Great Britain.  The great dailies are profuse in  their commendations of the loyalty and patriotism that furnished  the motive for this princely appropriation and tangible expression  of imperialism.  T_e sentiments of the British  press are well represented by the  "Standard" which says: "If the  Canadian Parliament accepts the  proposals, we shall enter into a  new era of hope and security, supported by the knowledge that it is  not' an Island Kingdom, but a  World Empire with which Great  Britain's enemies will have to reckon." '.      ��������� :.;������������������;-;;.' y  The Canadian newspapers were  almost a unit in their commendations of this bill.  The Ottawa "Citizen"���������"Anyone who listened to Premier Bord  en's speech and still was unconvinced of the Imperial imperative  caught nothing of the spirit or ot  the* occasion."  The "World" says:���������"The Canadian Parliament yesterday discharged a long-delayed duty that  the Canadian people would have  discharged years ago."  The "Mail and Empire"���������"By  Mr. Borden's naval aid measure  the onlooking world may be led to  realize as it never realized'before,  that the British Empire is a political corporation knit together and  co-ordinated by ties which the supreme test of danger has the effect  of only making stronger. Never  before was there such a family of  free states of one mind in an Imperial household." -i  Vifocouver and Rritiah Cotato*  hia are in full accord with the bill.  Sir Richard McBride speaking  of the Naval Bw says:  ("I can only express my very  great satisfaction with the manner  in which the Prime Minister has,  on behalf of the Canadian people,  recognized the duty of the Canadian people in the matter of Imperial defense.  "There can he no question that  Canada *8 proposal to assist so substantially toward the support of  the Imperial navy must, undoubtedly, have most powerful influence  not only within the Empire, bui as  well among the nations of the  world.  "The Prime Minister has again  shown himself equal to the great  trust which was given to him by  the Canadian people in 1912."

Vote for Trimble for Ward VIII  Ottawa.���������The debate on the address in reply to  the speech from the throne has been in progress a  week now and there are no signs of the flood of  oratory abating.  The debate on the address is one of the few opportunities when members can talk on any subject  from imperialism to-apple culture without fear of  treading upon the rules of the house. License to  roam the whole realm of politics is given. It is ti  fine chance for new members to inflict on the  house. maiden speeches and for representatives  with grievances to air themselves. Full opportunity of this privilege has been availed of this year,  and a dozen odd budding statesmen have quak-  ingly first addressed Mr. Speaker. '  It has been a dismal debate with few speeches  of more than passing interest.   The outstanding  speech of the debate so far has been that of Hon.  W. T. White, the finance minister.   The youthful  minister last session established himself as one of  the first debaters in the house.   He enhanced his  reputation  by his opening speech this  session.  Friend and foe alike admit today that he is one  of the big men of the administration.   Many declare that he is the biggest next to Borden.   He  has what a prime minister must possess, culture,  polish and education.   He is an easy and fluent  speaker, a logical debater, and quick at repartee.  He has the happy faculty of making the dullest  facts and figures interesting.   Mr. White spoke on  cement.   Early in the debate Sir Wilfrid Laurier  charged that the duty last summer was cut in two  for five months with a view of influencing the  Saskatchewan elections.    The finance minister's  reply drove the opposition leader and his western  lieutenant, Hon. Frank Oliver into the position of  either admitting he was right or admitting they  were speaking as defenders of the cement trust.  As Mr. White succinctly put it, "I am afraid my  honorable friend (Sir "Wilfrid) is not so much interested in the principle involved as he is anxious  for his friend and political adviser, Senator Edwards, head of the cement trust."  Mr. White showed that last spring there was a  serious eement shortage in the west and piled up  a formidable array of documents showing ho av he  had been beseiged for relief and how serious was  the difficulty. He had made a personal investigation and the cement trust had admitted it was unable to take care of the market. Under the circumstances he did the only thing he could as a  faithful public servant���������reduced the duty as he  was given power by tbe statute. If there was any  political plot in regard to the Saskatchewan elections, then every town and city in the west was  deep in it.  About the only other interesting feature of the  debate, so far, has been the admissions which  George W. Fowler drew from the Liberal leaders  as to their stand on reciprocity. For over a year  the Conservatives have been endeavoring to find  out just where the Liberals stood. It took the  sharp tongue of Fowler to drive Sir Wilfrid to his  feet. "We are a united party," was Sir Wilfrid's  first answer. The hero of the famous wine, women  and graft episode persisted and asked for a definite reply, and finally Sir Wilfrid replied, "I know  of some Liberals who have varied their views upon  reciprocity. I am not one of them." Mr. Pugsley  also admitted he was still a believer in reciprocity,  while Hugh Guthrie, one of the Ontraio leaders,  gave a somewhat cryptic answer which was interpreted to mean he still upholds reciprocity.  British Columbia members have so far allowed  the east to monopolize the debate. G. Hj Barnard  of Victoria is the only Coast member to have  spoken and his speech was brief and very much  to the point. He assured the premier that as far  as the naval proposals were concerned they could  not be too generous to suit British Columbia. He  also drew attention to the way the fortifications  at Esquimalt have been neglected and urged upon  the minister of militia and defence to at least restore them to the conditions of effectiveness before  the British Admiralty withdrew control  (Continued bnTige 5)  Choice  t> Hay  p.

Sentinels guarded the boundaries of the camp with  hawklike gaze; some twenty of the  bandits frolicked back and forth upon  the sward, waiting for tbe practice to  begin, and the rest of the operatic-  looking brigands, with their leader,  lounged around the catcher's position.  Juan Torrejon greeted his prisoners  with greaV courtesy, and asked if;  they bad/3'ept and breakfasted well.  Answered in the affirmative as toi  both* Queries, **��������� look of genuine'pleas*;  ure seemed to cross his swarthy coun-j  tenance, and he expressed his satis*:  faction at tbeir words. * !

What branch;  of the profession will you deign to instruct us In as a beginning?"  "If agreeable to you, Captain Tor*;  rejon," said Solano, "my friend will,  bat up some files, to see how your  fielders handle them."  "Bueno, muy bueno^, Torrejon approved. "I fear you will find them  but feeble in pursuit of the ball!"  ; Feeble they were. They tried bard,'  these bandit Mexicans, but only the  easiest kind of fly balls rested securely in their grip. After about a dozen  balls had been dropped, Solano, with  % gesture of impatience, set off at a  jog-trot, crossed the field and took up;  a position among the farthest Mexicans, not far from the edge of the,  clearing.  "Bueno, bueno?" laughed    Captain:  Totrejon.   "Your friend will show how!  the fly ball should be caught, si? Let:  us watch him."  -  Solano took two fly balls, each fair-i  ly well out, and backing beyond they  ring of Mexicans -o get tbem. Loud'  applause greeted bis graceful handling'  of the( chances. Then Brockett laid;  the wood against the ball with tre-i  mendoUB power. The startled sphere'  soared high, and Solano, starting at;  the crack of the bat, raced under the  ball far down to the bushes' edge.'  Amid a volley of cheers, he leaped!  high, pulled down the ball���������and thenj  kept right on running. . Before the as-!  tounded Mexicans could xeallze thej  trick, he vanished into the chaparral,,  sprinting like a madman, and with'  him went the ball that contained the j  messages to Gomez. Esteral!

Horsemen could not]  ride through t_e dense undergrowth:  Into which Solano had vanished, but:  itwenty bandits /were on .bis track.'aj  ���������noment later. The; chief : himself \  sprang at Brockett with, a snarl of!  fury, and made a lightning search of  the prisoner. The search brought  'forth the envelopes in which the brig-.;  lnal missives had reposed, and Torre-j  Jon, his fierce face lighting up a trlfle.j  carefully stowed them in bis own ap-i  parel.  He called a young Mexican to his!  side and ordered him to act as his In-,  terpreter. ;  ��������� "TeU the young man,", said the!  chief, slowly and with, an apparent re-i  turn of good humor, "that I was quite)  sure his friend had not carried off1  the papers, but that ^wanted to make]  sure���������he will therefor)*.. pardon the;  roughness of the searching process.}  Five minutes before tho other young;  man went out to catch Ay balls, deftj  bands had been over his clothing and*  found nothing.* He, therefore, simply  ma away, and left his companion ta  face the music.

A Cool Bandit.  In a manner as simple as it was  efficient a lone masked bandit held up  and robbed every passenger in the  chair car .on the C.P.R. train which  left Vancouver on Saturday night at  7.45 o'clock. The systematic clean up  was made as the train was running  along the shoreB of Burrard Inlet between the B.C. Sugar Refinery Company's plant and a point ��������� some two  miles east of Hastings. The number  of passengers robbed was ten. The  total booty secured by the bandit was  $309.25, and a few nieces of jewellery.'  It is supposed that the robber either  got on the train at the C.P.R. station  in. Vancouver before It started or that  he jumped aboard wben the^ train  slowed up for the Great Northern  crossing near the sugar refinery. It  was just after leaving this point that  he made his appearance in the chair  of the car, and immediately ordered  the passengers to throw up tbeir  hands and sit still. The. passengers  promptly obeyed, and 'the train robber, holding his revolver in his right  hand, went through the pockets of  every passenger in the car, In addition to $309.-5 in cash he secure-  two watches, one chain, a diamond  ring, and a couple of English sovereigns.  Reeve Kerr Repliesjto Criticisms.  South Vancouver, Dec. 9.���������Reeve'  Kerr; while discussing with a Province  representative the recent interview  with the Attorney-General, of those  who favor incorporation, said: "I like  a good fight fought on principles, and  I have'rib objection to any body of  ratepayers or any individual advocating incorporation, 'either before the-  Attorney-General or before the people;  but I do object to the statement made  to the Attorney-General that I was ant  annexationist at the last election in  order to gain votes, and that after I  was' elected did nothing to bring:  _bout annexation until another election is approaching. Mr. Bowser  knows that is not correct. He knows  that the Government was interviewed  about the matter some time ago.  Neither was it correct to say. asone-  of the deputation- did, that I ha<$  stated Mr. Bows>r bad .promised special legislation to enable South Vancouver to become annexed to the city.  I/sai������ we had every reason to be satisfied with the result of tbe interview we bad with the Attorney-  General.  "With reference to the statement  that the city aldermen are interfering  with South Vancouver affairs, the  Attorney-General knows perfectly well  that the Vancouver aldermen were  present at-the Interview we bad with  him to'lend their moral support to  our deputation. If the Incorporation-  ists wish to fight annexation let tbem  do so on general principles snd keep  personalities and irrelevant matters  out.  "South Vancouver has nothing to v  lose but a great deal to, gain.by annexation to the city;   and the argument that Vancouver will do nothing  to devlop the North Arm of the Fra-  ���������  ser is not warranted.     When South ��������� .

A 8UCCE88FUL HUM*T.  (Continued from Pajje 3)  grouse up the Ash -leugb, part of the  road' my companion had gone, my  ankle being too sore to climb the  mountain's. Returning home near  lark, I saw no trace of him, and as  *he shadows grew I became anxious,  and sought 'the counsel of neighbors  and man's best friend. Being assured  tbat as he knew tbe roads and his  way, and was surely bringing, a heavy  pack down that was keeping him  longer, I felt relieved as I proceeded  to prepare our meal. "After some  anxious hours of waiting, being all we  could do, I heard his little whistle.  Grabbing-the lantern, I was out to  meet him as he said, "I'm more all ln  than I ever was before." "Well," I  said, "come all the way. I don't know  wben I was so glad to see a fellow as  I am to see you." "Yes," he said,  "and I'm, glad to see you." I soon  gave him _ good drink of bot milk, got  him dry clothed and fed, and to bed,  where be was sound asleep In short  notice.  Well, wbat kept bim? That's the  question, eb? After, the milk had a  chance he says: "Well, I got my two  goats, when $ butted in like a goat"  "Hurrah! good for you!" "And," said  be, "I left the two beads, skin and  half ot-carcase at the shed by the  trail, all in. An Indian was there  settling for t"ie night in that open  shed, being side walls and a roof over  the road." Then be went on to tell me  that the goats were standing quietly,  and did not observe him.' Tbe first  sbot felled one. and the other looked  at it, walked over slowly near, smelt  blood, stepped back and then looked  all around. "It also got a bullet in ita  neck, and took a tumble. Tbis **ras  all done away up where the snow has  well covered the rocka for the winter.  At 1.15 he started homeward, and my!  oh my! such a pack. I know few men  who are able to bring such a pack  down.  Saturday we were up again early to  start for Vancouver.   Our stag* came  at 7, and we were soon on the why of  a first tap trip of 15 miles.   Stopping  for lunch, we made the next stage trip  to the boat, which landed as In Vancouver about 8 p.m.   On the way we  were busy nt times looking for what  We bad and could not find; had we  found it we would have, thrown, it-  away, because we could "set find it we  ���������tin keep tt.   Let me explain.   Aa we  dodged tbrowgb tho brash any place  in the valley we were quite' liable  to slip, and needed, something to cling  'to, as if climbing the rocks.   Anil in  \%e effort to keep from tailing, or making a noise we often grabbed and  shook hands with tbe devil sticks, and  a digging devil's Job It is to get those  thistles out again.

Weyburn, Sask.���������The Weyburn  Board of Trade is now endeavoring to  obtain some definite assurances in regard to the Canadian Northern, inasmuch as a great many industrial propositions are now awaiting'some announcement as to the coming of this  latter road into Weyburn. The prospects are also excellent for the early  completion of the Radville connection  which requires only the building of  about 38 miles of road. This connection will make Weyburn the pivotal  point on the Canadian Northern Railway's western trunk system.  '  More Railways for Swift Current.  Swift Current, Sask.���������Word has  now. been received that the C.

The complete organization of the  German fleet, as described by the  latest law, will be that the battle  squadrons and fleet flagships will comprise 41 battleships in all, each attended by a battle or armored cruiser  squadron, complete with small, cruisers and auxiliaries of all kinds and accompanied by numerous flotillas of destroyers and submarines./  This full development will only he  realized step by step,-but already tn  1914, two squadrons will, according to  Admiralty Information, be entirely  composed of what are called Dreadnoughts, and tbe third will be made up  of good ships like the Peutcbslaj������.ds  and the 8rnw^chewe)gi, together  with five Dreadnought battle cruiser**.

It ts concentrated" In close  proximity tot the Gertpan and, British  w������**f*"!**H  The following is tbe preamble to the  German naval laws:  "In order to protect German trade  and commerce under existing conditions, only one thing will suffice,  namely, Germany must possess a battle fleet of such a strength that even  for the most po***erfu) naval adversary a waf Involve such risks as  to make that power's own supremacy  doubtful. For this purpose it ts not  absolutely necessary that the German  fleet should be ai strong as that of the  greatest naval power, for, as a rule,  a great naval power will not be In a  position to concentrate all its forces  against us."  Situation in 1916. , "*  6. It is now necessary to look forward to the situation in 1916. In the  spring of the year 1915 Great Britain  will have 25 Dreadnought battleships  and two Lord Nelson's. Germany will  have 17 Dreadnought battleships.  Great Britain will have six battle  cruisers. Germany will have six  battle cruisers.  These margins ln new ships are  sober and moderate. They do not err  on the side of excess. \ The reason  they suffice for the present is that  Great Britain possesses a good superiority in battleships, and especially  armored cruisers of the pre-Dread-  nought era.  The reserve will steadily diminish,  actually because the ships it is composed of grow old, and relatively because the new ships are more powerful. It will diminish more rapidly if  new construction of Germany is increased or accelerated. As this pro-,  cess. continues, greater exertions will  be required by the British Empire.  Four battle cruisers and four armored cruisers will be required to support British interests in the Mediterranean during the year 1913 and 1914.  During these years the navies of Austria and Italy will gradually increase  in strength, until in 1915 they will  each possess a formidable fleet of  four and six Dreadnought battleships  respectively, together with strong  battleships of the pre-Dreadnought  type. In the year 1915 our squadron  of 15 cruisers and four armored cruisers will not suffice to fulfill our re  quirements, and its whole composition must be reconsidered.  It has been necessary within the  last decade to concentrate battleships  in the home waters. ''  1902 there were 160 British vessels  on the Overseas stations against  seventy-six today.  " Naval Supremacy.  7���������-Naval supremacy is of two kinds,  general and loca.l General naval supremacy consists in the power to defeat In battle and drive from the seas  the strongest hostile navy or combination wherever they may be found.  Local superiority consists in the  power to .send in. good time to, .or  maintain permanently in some distant  theatre, forces, adequate to defeat the  enemy or hold him in check until the  main decision has been obtained in  the deoisive theatre.  It is the general naval supermacy of  Great Britain which is the primary  safeguard of tjfte security and interest  of the great Dominions pf the Crown  and which for all these yeara has been  the deterrent upon any possible designs prejudicial or inconsiderate of  tbelr policy and safety.  The .rapid, expansion 61 .Canadian  seaborne, trade and the immense i*alue  at Canadian cargoes always afloat In  RfUifcfe nn������l Canadian bottoms her* require consideration." On the basts of  tbe figures suplied by the Board of  Trade to the'Imperial Conference of  1911, the annual value of the Overseas  trade of the Dominion of Canada1 In  1909*10 was not less than -72,000,000,  and the tonnage of Canadian vessels  was 718,000 tons, 'and these proportions have already increased and are  still increasing. For the whole of jthis  trade wherever . lt may be about ithe  distant waters of the world, as well as  tor. the maintenance of her communications, both with JSurope and Asia,  Canada is dependent, and has always  depended* upon the; Imperial navy,  without corresponding contribution or  cost.; ���������;'���������, ,'^yyyx.y .  \'''yy.y. 7^oJfte;;r*i#fit.  Further, at the present time and in  the immediate future, Great Britain  still has the power, by making special  arrangements and mobilizing a portion  of the reserves, to send, without courting disaster at home, an effective fleet  of battleships and cruisers to unite  with the Royal Australian Navy and  tbe British squadrons in China and the  Pacific for tho defence of British Col*  umbla, Australia and New Zealand.  And these communities are also protected and their interests safeguarded  by the power and authority of Great  Britain so long as her naval strength  is unbroken.  8���������-This power, both specific and  general, will be diminished with the  growth not only of the German navy,  but by the simultaneous building by  many powers of great modern ships'of  war.  Whereas, in the present year, Great  Britain possesses 18 battleships and  battle cruisers of the Dreadnought  class against 19 of tbat class pos-  9ssed by- the other powers of Europe,  and will possess in 1913 24 to 21, the  figures in 1914 will be ,31 to 33, and  in the year 1915 35 to 51.  The existence of a number of navies,  all comprising ships of high quality,  must be considered in so far as it  affects the possibility of adverse combinations being suddenly formed.  Larger margins of superiority at home  would, among other things, restore a  greater freedom to the movements of  the British squadrons in every sea,  and directly promote the security of  the Dominions. Anything which increases our margin in the /newest  ships diminishes the strength and  augments our security and our  chances of being left unmolested.
