So far.', as teachers themselves are concerned the. facilities given; by the possession: of .a recognized certificate 'to teach' in-any part of the Empire will do-much'in a process of education �which-will have a direct benefit in the - exercise' of their profession. Let the People Say (Medicine Hat Call) The Saskatchewan Legislature decided that their new direct legislation act shall not,' go Into effect, until the people of the Province have themselves a chance, of 'saying whether they wish for'It. In other words the new act is'itself'to.be the-subject of the first vote. It is'to be hoped, for the sake of ail Interesting experiment in these Western Provinces, that the people's answer" will be in the affirmative, and that by a large majority. The Lord High Intimidator (Winnipeg Free Press) The guiding principle of Premier Roblin's management of the public affairs of Manitoba isJ to"" do as he pleases, in ruthless disregard of decency, of hone&y* of Justice,- and of the law. He- is the Lord High Intimidator, holdings himself chartered to believe that;�Manitoba; is his to rule as h� wills, andsttiat his will is above the law, and'that he is entitled to do anything he-cHaoBes tb do, or to get dqne, in order - to7 crush opposition to bis will and'defeat the endeavor to rid the province - of its incubus of corrupt and � tyrannical Roblin rule. give the southern dominion a. money I donation in' excuse for our, national impotence. - . Are Canadians Superior to the Japs? (Vancouver Sun) "There have been proposals," says Mr. Borden, "that wo should build up a "great naval organization in Canada: In my humble opinion nothing of an effective character could be built up in this country within a quarter or perhaps half a century." When Japan began war with China in 1804 she was not &e possessor of a single battleship. Her naval strength'at the outbreak . of the war with Russia in 1904, only 10 years afterwards, was: Dlsplace- ' . Number meut Battleships.......... � 84,652 Armoured Cruisers ... 3 73,082 Other Cruisers ....... 44 111,470 Destroyers ........... 10 6,519 Torpedo Boats ....... SO 7,119 Totals............. .157 283,742 Were these ships "of an effective character*'? Ask Russia, yet this gentle Mr, Borden tells us that we could not begin to do id 2.5 or 50 years what Japan did in 10. .. But let us follow the naval develop ment japan a little further. The serviceable Japanese fleet In 1909, only four, years later, was: Displace^ '- - Number' ment Battleships ......... 13 191,380 Armoured bruisers ... 12 130,683 Other Cruisers, coast defence ships and . gunboats........... 4 Destroyers .____..

(Edmonton Bulletin) An Australian correspondent of a London paper 'says that representatives of the-itftperial, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand governments will meet in^'Vancouver this summer to' discuss naval defence measures. Australia has evidently not yet heard, that Canada has abandoned the plans whereby she^would have taken a hand in defending Brifish interests in the Pacific. Under Mr. Borden's scheme this duty must fall upon the Australians and New Zealanders exclusively, including ot course' the defence on Canada'^ Pacific Coast."" Perhaps, however, the Nationalists-will-consent to Totals.............204 .515,082 This is Japan's record in 15 years. At Mr. Borden's rate of calculation Canada cannot; hope to accomplish as much ill a ;coupIe of centuries at" least. Mr. Borden's conviction.as to.Canada's feebleness suggests an unpleasant train of-thought. If Canadians arc not even ciphers compared with the Japanese, Tve certainly ought not to lose any time in setting about the task for which we are so. inept. Are we to remain for half a century without even the beginning of a fleet to protect British Columbia's 5,000 miles of seaboard? Evidently wc are it Mr. Borden .has his way v" Australia has wakened, up to the situation and New Zealand.is rousing herself to the necessity of a great combined fleet of the Dominions on the Pacific..
