Mr. Borden, in proposing the health of the guest, referred lo tiie inspiration of his presence in Canada and to the splendid progress which had been made by the dominion ot New ZealH".'!. The prime minister said tl'ac in co.-nmon with the other portions ot the empire a great task lay before the island dominion. Sir Wilfrid Laurier complimented Col. Allen on having follo\ved the example of his predecessors in taking the Canadian route on his home-Avard journey from the motherland. Ho said the problem of today was to abridge distances and, if possible, to. annihilate them. In this connection he referred to the All Red steamship project which his government had under consideration and which he hoped the present administration would carry out.  , It was Sir Wilfrid's opinion that direct lines from Vancouver to both Australia and New Zealand were a necessity. | Col. Allen's health was drunk with enthusiasm. After alluding to the warmth of, his welcome to Canada, since he landed in (Quebec, he expressed concurrence in Sir Wilfrid's views as to 1;he importance ot improved communication on the Pacific, adding that when the new ship Niagara ar- i rived at Vancouver from New Zea- { land, the people of Canada would be proud ot her. A grand work in uniting Australia, New Zealand and Canada under the seas has been accomplished by the all-British cable which had met with such success that before long it would be necessary to duplicate portions of it. Col. Allen explained at some length the military system of New Zealand with special reference ot the "expe-jditionary force" which ho described participation in a conference that has no executive', functioii.s," he said, ''even IE It is only an advisory board. We are no doubt all looking forward to In a more pr.ictital organization. This is the capital of the great Dominion ot Canada of a territory embracing more than hal; ol the .North American continent and v,c look to you Canadian statesnicn to give us a leader." A Pacific Fleet Canadian eastern shorn.s, he said, owed more to the British Empire than did New Zealand, but New Zealand also looked to the maintenance of battle strength of the British fleet In the north sea.' The western shores of the Dominion were more closely allied with ..Vustraiia and New Zealand, and protection ot the Pacific ocean should he the mutual concern of all three. New Zealand was prepared to make sacrifices' In the accomplishment of that end. But in that Neiv Zealand looked to Canada for a lead. Col. Allen concluded <^-\ih a cordial invitation to Canadian statesmen to visit his country where he assured them they would meet with a hearty welcome. The visiting minister was taken to the experimental farm this afternoon and escorted to several points of interest. Tomorrow the Canadian club will give Col. Allen a luncheon at the Chateau Laurier. 1 ER St. John, N. B., May l.-.Sir Chas.
