Brierley, in the Montreal Herald) it is to be hoped that Canada g as to its permanent naval policy is hound to have far-reaching and import- ant influences on the destiny of the Empire. We have had in Canada much un Bui for the Australian force, the Aus- iralian coast would probahly have been j raided, and the Australian coast I towns laid .under contribution or (te- stroved. That would have been a l grievous humiliation for the Empire and for the Mother Country. More- .itlitr it. .4 escape, during the war, the bit- ter controversies incidental to a gen- oral election, it. is desirable that we take to heart, as time pastes, such lessons as experience may give to guide UE in the formation of our sa- tional policies after the war. Take the question of the jjiirtici- seenllv controversy over the course I followed on this question by both the i Liberal ami the Conservative party, i The war has quieted the tempeet.

"The other plan was t ried by New Zealand. She built a battle cruiser at her own cost, pressure from the British single patriotism placed the ship Jtt- the Rritish government's disposal. As the result, the British Treasury forced the British naval authorities to reduce the meagre shipbuilding proposals by the equivalent of one battle cruiser. So that N'ew Zealand's disinterested- ness did not actuatly streusthen the British Xavy. A shin, which would otherwise have been built by the Mother Country, was :built New Zea- lifla's expense.

GIVB9 "NOW SEXVINO J.MO.IM HOMKS- THE IMPERIAL OIL COMPANY Limited ...ji, BRANCHES IN ALL CITUU Mtde Canada of an Australian -CBuiser that mKde.this The judgmeofc passed by this writer is. upon the plactical side of the pol- cy not upon its political aspect. Vet tkere has been lime difference of op- inion in Canada over any phase of the subject, excepting the one of physical efficiency. The opponents of local navies have stressed the argument that the decisive struggle wo.uld be in the North and that Dominion I fleets in far-oft waters wenld he the the poet's "painted ships upon a paiited ocean." The evidence shows that, to the contrary, they have been exceedingly effective m their own theatres of operation, and after ten months of war the decisive struisie in tbe North Sea has yet to come, and when it. comes a Dominion fleet, may be in the -fighting line, having- done UK work in the' outer seas. Viewed from, the political and na- tional standpoint, .the argument lor lo- cal navies has always been strong. Both parties in the House accepted it without reservation in 130S, and if now the doubts as to the efficiency in war of-such navies are to be dispelled, by the lessons of. experience, we will have very substantial reasons for adopting, as a national policy, the principle 01 Dominion navies.- :Sir Robert Borden, far' as -he has --travelled around-on which he stood in never, I believe, placed himself ,on re- cord as opposing the Principles of :W- cal navies. His "contribution" policy was avowedly an emergency measure, and even it was coupled with an inti- mation that a Boaiinion fleet might be a subsequent creation. There is, therefore, no bar, by the advocacy of any opposing .principle, to the adou- ion by the Premier, as his perman- ent policy, of the principle of naval defence, 'to which the Opposition is pledged. That is, there in no good and sufficient reason why, on this po'iicy, he two parties should not be united, as they were six years ago, and, there- fore o'f course, no justification for the country being divided upon an issue of such grave importance, one touch- ing closely our most vftal interests in be future, that every consideration calls for its settlement upon a national and not up on a partisan basis.
