Canada Knows Best tToroDto Star) There is Something pathetic in the, childlike dependence, of the government on the Churchill letters; It-was, legitimate enough io ask Mr. Churchill and the Admiralty e-vperts what the. Empire needed, and what form of aid would be most useful and most' acceptable. ' But it was weak to say to. Mr. Churchill, in eltect:. "Please, sir, give us some facts and figures which 'will show us that Canada cannot build her own fleet." A strong man and a strong government should have said: "Tell us what the Empire needs^ AVe will judge and decide what we Canadians can do. We know what are the resources of Canada, and what her enterprising citizens can do." We do not join in the severe censures that have been passed upon Mr. Churchill. A question was put to him In a form which left no doubt as to the kind of ansjver that was desired; and Mr. Churdhill-gave that kind of answer. If he went too far in his desire to help the government of Canada that 'was a failing that leaned to virtue's side. The mistake was made by the government of-Canada in weakly asking for advice on a question which it ought to have decided itself. The goveri^mnet ought to know that Canada can build ships of any kind. We have the iron, we have the coal, we have the greatest source-of'nickel in the world. We have the industrial ambition and the industrial skill. There is nothing in the world that we cannot, manufacture or build. We have the men to build th-e ships ai^d to man the ships. These are questions on which.. Canadians can speak with greater authority than Winston' Chirrchill or anyBody else outside of Canada. -j �:.: .> . -idicatlons'were -received by them.

The oppo?RIon appears to be~ going Into this election simply on a campaign of abuse and- Dominion: government support. And what does Dominion government, support mean.? What did Conservative. pupport-rthe support ot the protected Interests-mean in 1911. Mrj Michener; professedly independent", and a large land owner, would normally .have..been a supporter, of reciprocity.' But he wag compelled; to save his position as head of thei CqnseiTative party In Alberta, to take the stump agalnat ' reclpi-oclty. amd wider markets; he became a party to going one hundred miles outside the constituency to bring in as candidate a -Calgary lawyer. To' run against .whom? To run against Dr. Clark, a farmer himself, and the chief apostle of the farmers of the west in -the Commons for free trade and a lower tariff. Just think of it-party exigencies compelled Mr. Michener to support the Calgary lawyer against th^ Red Deer farmer, compelled him to oppose' a policy which he knew �would increase the value of all 'west-. 6rn lands, and compelled him to support a policy which makes the �west-ern fafmer-and wage'earner a hewer of wood and a drawer of water for the protected and financial Interests of the east'. ' . And the protected'and finamclal interests of 'the east-^bythe aid of-Mr. Michener and the Conservative party -^are now attempting to further fas-teii'the bondage of high taxation and restricted markets on this western country.
