The Bristol was the latest design of cruiser of her class and the Canadian cruiser would be built entirely on. the lines laid down by .the Admiralty. The minister explained it had been to drop the Boadicea which was included in the first programme and from the Admir- alty the Niobe, a cruiser oi which would cost The destroyers would be of the im- proved river class. Negotiations were now under way for the purchase of the Niobe and the Rainbow. The force. Sir Frederick declared that there was, no scare except in the minds of some British newspaper editorials and read lengthy extracts from the Edinburgh Review and other journals to bear out his contention. Ger- many, with its great interests, was doing nothing but defending her lines of commerce. The Britishers were never stronger to compete with all commerce. This strength was essen- tial for the maintenance of the peace of the world at, large. CANADA'S BEST HELP The government wished to assist in every way the Motherland. It was to be best done by the crea- tion of a Canadian- naval force and, not by spending for the purpose suggested by Mr; Borden. Sir Frederick sat down, having spoken for three hours. HON. G. E.FOSTER Mr. Foster, who foiLowed, thanked Mr. Borden for a long but very illu- to go directly to the heart of his pro- minating speech.

One eye on Quebec, the other on 'Ontario, and therefore'he'the shifting sands of compromise; such order with glittering and deceptive rhetoric.

The Niobe would be stationed on the Atlantic and for the time being would be used for training purposes, although when the other ships were completed she would take her place with -them as an active vessel.- The object of having these two training shiprs was that by' the time the naval force .was completed there would be it was hoped, a sufficient number of trained men to man the force. When completed two of the Bristols would. be stationed on the Pacific on the Atlantic, with the Niobe and the six destroyers. These ships, Sir Frederick Borden 'affirmed were suited for Cana- dian waters.
