Phonp761 (From^the Winnipeg Free Press) The full text of the speech recently made by Senator Pearce, Minister of Defence for. Australia, has been, published in Londott'by the CommonvVealth authorities. The cabled summary ot.[ Senator Pearce's remarks indicated their importance; but the complete text Is a docuriient to which the whole Empire, and Canada In particular, must pay attention. It is a challenge to Canada's sense of honor which we Canadians will ignore to our discredit a^id to ithe peril of the Empire. Senator Pearie makes the charge -absolutely justified by the facts- that Canada has deliberately broken faith with Australia. He further enquires as to how far the admiralty Is responsible for the change of policy whicli leaves Australia isolated in the Pacific and bitter with a sense of abandonment. This is a question which the British Goyernmeiit and the British Admiralty will have to answer, It is pointed out by Senatpr Pearce that the policy of naval defence to which Australia is committed wa? based upon the decisions reached .by the Imperial Defence Conference held In London: in the; summer of 1909 at, which all the British Dominions -wetQ, nought .type); 3' unarmoured cruisers (Bristol class), 6 desitroyers, submarines, with the necessary auxiliaries which are not here specified. Such a fleet unit tvould be capable of action not only in the defence of coast but |,lBO of the traed routes and would bo sufflciendy powerful totdeal with small hostile squadrons should such ever at-itempt to act In. Its waters." i Australia, as Senator Pearce points out,. accepted this suggestion In its entirety and proceeded without delay 'to carry it out. Subsequently they enlarged lit to the dlmensionB of the Hend'Srsbn scheme. Senator Pearce puts the full responsibility for the naval defence echeme of 1909 upon the Admiralty-and denies that Australia's delogates attended the conference for the'purpose of'urging local navies tor Ithe Dominions. The defence scheme prolJosed by the Admiralty was accepted by Australia; and in a modified forih-r-dile to the;-,Xact that Canada fronts upon two oceans-by Canada. The comparatiyely small fleet which Canada proposed to put into the Pacific was doubtless accepted by. Aus traila as an, earnest of further naval developmeht on .those waters. At any rate, � there was ii^qpmplalnt by Australia (that Canada "in not putting a naval unit In the Paoiflc at thel but represented. When this conference assembled .the British Admiralty submit- , , , , .,. ted a memorandum to aid it In its de- set was , violatmg the understanding ds to Joint action in the Pacific by the Brklslh Dominions facing on it. It was, left'to a Canadian statesman to iointiout to the Dominion -Govern- Uberatlons. The memorandum in part was in these terms: i "If the problem of Imperial navy defence^ were considered; merely as a problem of naval strategy It would he ^ent Its shortcomings in this respec^. found that the greatest ou'tput' of strength, for a given expenditure is obtained by the maintenance of a single navy with the oonoomltaTi|| unity of training and unity of coni*] mand. In' furtherance, then, ;0f 'thel, simple strategical ideal the maximum., power, will be gained if all the parts'of the Empire contributed according ;!tp their needs and resources to the maintenance of the.British navy. "It has, however, long been rocog-, nized that In defining the conditions under which the naval forces of the Empire should be developed, other considerations than those of strati^^y alone must be taken into account. The various circumstances of the oyersei'' dominions have to be borne in mind.: Though all have in them the seeds'of a great advance in ^population,, wealtli.| and power, theyliave at the r present time attained to different-stages In their igrowith. Their geograp.hicalposl-r .tlon has subjected - them to internal' and external strains, verying in kind and intensity. Theii; history and physical environment hav^- given rfsen to*: individual national sentiment for :th^ expression . of which, roo mmusifc'b^i found., .

Speaking in. ithe Dominion Parliament In February, 1910, just three years ago, Geo, S3, Foster, who caii talk well on ^any subject or any side of a subject, wept .over Canada's failure to rise to the full height of its'responsibility in' the matter of pufitlng a Canadian fleet in the Pacific. In the course of his th-iiarks' the present minister of trade and commerce said; ' '!The Admiralty hdd worked out an admirable scheme. A few years ago they drew their war vessels from every part of the ocean and massed khem around Britain's home and Britain's . heart for their protection. But they:had to keep certain vessels on the far-off seas to show the flag and to be prepared, for emergencies. ThesPaclfic ocean , has been revolutionized in the last ten years. On Ihe Paclflc ocean Brltaliys .fleet is not numerous; it is growing stronger.  ,, '.: "Britain, in conjimction with Australia^ and New Zealand, and, as she topdly hoped, with Canada., made this .proposition fist-and I, bring Ithe re-I'coUeotlon of my right hon. friend, to it. He said: .Tolil with ;Australia and Ne,w Zealand and the British Government, and let us build four units, flftyr three vessels, and place them, wHth their, four Dreadnought leaders, la the �Paclflc ocean.

You will put In those urippoteoted seas a strong fleet that wilt be amply able to, hold those wat-er^s against all comers until.

It has reference to a letter of mine which appeared in the i-Jerald last. week, 'which owing to a mls-prlnt appeared with the nom-de-plume of "Yens Sana," instead of "Mens Sana," as signed by myself. This brilliant etlitoatioualiat suggests that I should lake a course in the Kindergarten class. Can "Onlooker," as he terras himself, find a fiJngle mistake of grammar in the whole of my letter? If I should bo termed "au ass," as he states, wo'ild he be so indulgent as to make clear for the toeneflt of myself and others wl.etiier it is my auto-grapli or my political views that are antagonistical. � '' He also states that I am a. person desirous of making fame foT myself in the journalistic world. This of a man writing under a nom-de-plumc. As our French neighbors would say: "It is to laugh." .1 aju, Yours, etc, MBNS* SANA. U. S.
