THE BRITISH EMPIRE Ou Empire Day, tlie London Dailj Mail, the imperialist organ, gave itb readers a great quantity of data col- lected Iroui various sources for purpose of throwing light ou the vastuess of the Thes ligures are a reveJutiou. The area the British Empire is now square miles, or more than a tilth of thy whole area of land oil the globe. The total pop ulatiou in iy08 is or between oue-fourlh and one-lifth the total population uf the earth. Oi this vast population only a fraction is white, the total number oi while inhabitants not exceeding in the current year. In other words, the empire has six colored inhabi- tants for every white one. it is not generally known that between I860 and 19U7 the area of the empire in- creased from square miles to During the same than half a revenue has increased two and a half times, and the volume of trade has been more than trebled. We next note that the annual cost of all the defensive forces oi the em- pire is out of a total of in imperial administration. If we analyze these figures we find that the people of the United Kingdom contributed towards the disbursements for defence per capita, and the white inhabit- ants of the whole empire of the Brit- ish isles only 12 cents. The Imper- ial navy in 1908 comprises twelve Dreadnoughts and fifty-one other tleships, thirty-eight armored cruis-' ers and seventy-seven other cruisers, besides destroyers, torpedo boats aikl submarines. The ugg-'Cgatu war strength of the land forces of the eui pire is estimated officially at slight- ly over If now, we turn to commercial stat istics we find that the total value of the empire's trade in 1906, the last, year for which detailed data was ob- tainable, reached for imports and exports combined. The total interimperial trade fell only a little short of or about 26 per cent, of the whole com- merce, foreign and intfc-imperiu.'.. The shipping of the empire ij al- most exactly half the total tonnage possessed by all the powers in the. world. In 1906 it consisted of 10.- tons of steam vessels and tons of sailing vessels. To this aggregate Canada contributed tons and Australia's share was 368.000 tons. The total revenues of the empire now amount to an nuaily, while the aggregate debt ex- ceeds Of the self-go vernicg of the empire Canada is the least taxed, whereas taxation and debt are highest Lu New Zealand The total mileage of railways open for the whole empire and the variou leading states is about miles The submarine telegraph cables which link the various parts of the empir together have a combined length miles. We observe, lastly that Colombo, Singapore and Ho Kong complete tho line of Britis fortresses, which with Gibralter, Ma ta and Auen guard the shortest oc can highway from Europe to Chin and Japan. Until the face of th earth is changed or until England lo es her command of the sea, even the New York Sun admits, nothing can alter the fact that vessels of ev- ery nationality on the shortest di- rect route Jrom Europe to China or Japan must make use of British ports of call. is true of the route by Suez Canal is true also of that of the Cape of Good Hope. the oppoaition attowod dictate to tho majority aul force them to put up with the loaded cJjee in the jvoters' list prepared under the dnec- 1OU Ol LilU IWUI1U utimiwLtw Manitoba?
