These men say in effect that as the strike was not properly called the men who obeyed Mr. Sherman's order must fight their own battles as. best they can. on their own resources.

His re- ply was that Jones alone had with him. better than for Canada to have a navy of hex1 own which would be an aux- iliary to the British navy.

McLelland and j R.R. Davidson. All the speeches "were .i delivered in good form with many touches of real eloquence. From the standpoint of oratory Mr. Ware car- ried off the honors while the effort of R. R. Davidson was generally con- ceded to have been the best mentative speech.. Mesrs. McLelland and Davidson argued in favor of a Can- adian navy as a means of producing a stronger Canadianism and making Canada a stronger link in the chain of the empire. There was no justi- fication for a war scare and no haste. The contributory method was con- argu- ap- peared to be in an ugly humor, pull- ed his pocket knife out, and opening it, said to ihe boy.
