ALLEN BAKER SAYS LIBERAL NAVAL POLICY IS BEST FOR CANADA London, March 6.-J. Allen Baker, M.P., discussing tlie -Canadian navy Issue in the current Contemporary Review, expresses the belief that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's plan Is much more satisfactory to the Canadian people. Ho proteste. against thc figures' used by Premier Borden ln:;{a.vOToi;tl>e argument for an. immediate jgi-aiit to the navy. Mr. Borden's -roen^franduro, says Mr. Baker, produces �alarming figures by comparing the ' Elog-lish fleet with the combined lle?tB Of the feat of the European.Po"vyferB;:and thus succeeds In pointing out' that In X915 we fjhall have only tlijpty-flve dreadnoughts againpt.vtlieir tlftyv.Tna:. But it Is. a prepoaterou's baBls'.of com* Varison, says Mr. Baker; the 'very least favorable basts pf comparison that it is possible to take. The. writer then gives the reasons in support of his contentioa that the Laurler- policy ia the better of the two. It does directly secure what is Indubitably the desire of innny Canadians-the presence of ships of war in Canadian waters. By it Canada would repay her debt by definitely lightening the burden of responsibility that rests on the British .Admiralty. By the application of Sir Wilfrid's policy alone can be solved the .Question of Canadian naval indepead-enbe." If.'Canadians wish to, help In bearing the burden of naval preparation: they must'be prepared to serve themselves, and thc only way to Induce 'them to do so is to have a national fleet. , Magistrate-And what was- th6 prlBr oner, doing? .,.

"-^tr Spokane Business Men Trying to Evolve Scheme to Wake Things Up Spokane, Wash., March 7.-An important link in the chain ot Pacific Nortliwest festivals will be added this summer in'Spokane, when residents ot the surrounding country will unite in giving a carnival on a scale equal to that of the Portland Rose Festival, Seattle Potlach and Pendleton Roundup. One ot the principal features announced by a committee ot fifty business meii will be an athletic tournament, patterned after the Olympic games, in which athletes in all parts of North America will be eligible to compete lor valuable prizes. The carnival will hark back to western pioneer days, too, with a tournament ot volunteer fire departments, ot which there are scores in the towns ot the Spokane country. Though no'name has been selected yet, the �vent will be known as playtime in the Inland Empire of the Pa-, cltic northwest. In order that the tens of thousands of farmers may participate, the week beginning June 16 has been selected, following the spring planting, and preceding harvest. Business men ot Spokane already have contributed $iO,00O to a fund for this year's carnival, and twice that sum will be raised during the next sixty days. Charles H^bberd, president of the Chamber of Comm.erce, states that the carnival will be one of a series of Pacific Northwestern events that serve to effect a closer co-operation between communities, adding; "We waiit to m^ke this, section the summer playground ot America, just as the south is the ^winter playground. With our carnivals we can accomplish at least two things: first, we can make the visits of persons from the east more enjoyable; and, second, we can unite thc people o'f our own country In a close bond of unity."
