BRITISH RESENT BALFOUR'S WORDS German Attitude is Debated - Mob Breaks Up the Meeting Lethbridge London, Jan. 6.-The Conservatives claim that Mr. Balfour's statement that Germany is not pr �spared to al low Great Britain to adopt protec tion, made in his reference to naval weakness is worth many votes. The party In fact, has been greatly heartened by the reappearance of the leader and his speech at Hanley. The Liberals on the other hand' depreciate to a man Balfour's position of responsibllty dealing with "such perilous stuff" for, as they allege, platform purposes. "Infinitely more impressive to Germany than any valiant assertions as to what we are going to do In the future," says one of the most responsible Liberal organs, "is the solid fact that our landed classes and rich men are on strike against expenditures at the present moment. Just as Britain is watching Germany for evidence that the money strain is beginning to tell, so Germany is similarly watching her and drawing encouraging inferences l:rom the rejection of the budget." The people, the Liberals declare, are refusing to be stampeded by an j invasion scare, and the majority believed Premier Asqulth when he said the navy was unassailably supreme, Lloyd-George has compelled Lord Saville to admit that he has no proof that the chancellor cheered defeats of the army in South Africa from his seat in the Commons. The fiercenes of the campaign is becoming accentuated. One thousand people at Stafford stormed a unionist meeting smashing windows and surging into the hall. Toronto, Jan. 5.-At the ofHctal opening of the Ontario Club, the new Liberal Club for the province. Sir Wilfrid Laurler was the principal speaker. He devoted his short ad dress to Canada's naval policy almost wholly. Canada has made, he said, such enormoua strides In material wealth that no nation could show such a record as that of the Dominion during the past few years. He proceeded to show that Canada willingly and loyally bowed to the suzeralnlty of the British sovereign, but that suzer-aimxy waB' miy-^o-lkr as-tiie pariiii; ment and people of Canada conceded. This unexampled and splendid position of being a nation and yet being under the British crown has founded new problems and calls for new duties. The parliament of Canada had declared unanimously that the time had come when Canada should bear a share of: the burden of dfifence of the Empire. There were the questions of security of commerce, the protection of cur own coasts and the warrantv which our actions would give of trying to secure the peace of the world, because all nations know that we did not desire any aggrandizement and dH not seek 'any other rhan the defence of our own Interests. 'I'his was what we meant when we unanimously rri-oived on forming tlie nucleus of a Canadian navy. He declared that all the talk about Germany's a!'.''?e'. de-fcitf for aggrandizement at tlia expense of Great Britain wei-.s nlriiout any real foundation in fact, and that' even if it were, Britain was so powerful on sea and land that it would b- madness to attack her. Canada at any rate woiiid be truj and loyal to Britain. The remainder of his speech was devoted to a laudation of the work of the Liberal party In Canada. M. J. Haney presided and explained the object of the club. The only other speaker was J. 'A. Mac-donald who proposed "Our Guest" in an eloquent address., Ottawa, Jan. 5.-A census department estimate of the population of j Canada by provinces at the end of the last fiscal year Is as folows: Maritime Provinces, 1,037,112; Quebec, 2,088,461; Ontario, 2,619,026; Manitoba, 466,258; Saskatchewan, 341,521; Alberta, 273,869; British Columbia, 289,516; Unorganized districts 68,309.

LABOR LEADER ASSAULTED Vancouver, Jan. 5.-Buyers representing one h{iindred and sixty-five lumber yards In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba *re either in Vancouver today or have been in the city within,the past few days for tlie purpose of acquainting themselves with the conditions of the / gianufacturlng end of the lumber business. A large manufacturer of lumber in Vancouver stated todhy that the outlook for a heavy exportation of lumber to the prairies during 1910 Is excellent. The lumbering Industry on the coast has never been, according to this authority In a better condition than it is today, the stocks in the mills being about half what they were this time last year. The demand is much beter than was the case twelve months ago. The lumber manufacturers on the coast are expecting a general stiffening of the market in March and April, and, while there may be no general advance in the price of lumber, the Increase is looked for in certain grades which some mills at present are long on. When they have worked their stocks down,, advances will naturally occur.
