AMONGST Conservative circles in Toronto R B. Bennett is evidently considered to have 'committed one of the seven in dis- agreeing with his party over the proposals to aic the Canadian Northern Railway. That is to say if the conduct of Ward IV. reflects the Conservative opinion generally in the Queen City. R. B. was to have been the principal attraction at a smoker to be given by the ward Conserva- but, as the association has always been a loyal supporter of the party, it was considered dangerously like lese majeste to have within its pale, even temporarily. 5 person like Richard Bed- ford Bennett who had dared to bring his Tory orthodoxy under suspicion. So the smoker was declared oftY Thus 8oes the party spirit declare itself. And it is a mighty poor cue which does not allow its members freedom of thought and action, but ex- pects them to-slavishly bow themselves to the great party machine. The incident referred to is reported in the Toronto World as follows: R. B.-Bennett, M.P., Calgary, will not address Ward IV. Conservative smoker on Monday night for the very sufficient rea- son that the smoker will not be held. That was the decision arrived at by officers of association at a private meeting last night, and subsecniently communicated by President W. H. Smith to the World. "Is there any reason for hot holding the 1 he was asked. 'Well, We thought it would be unwise to bring Mr. Bennett here to speak at the present time. Ward IV. association has always been a loyal supporter of the party, and so we decided not to ask Air. Bennett until this Canadian Northern matter has been straightened out." Canada will never produce statesmen, worthy of the name, if men are to be expected to be al- ways tied to the party wheel, and make their ac- tious correspond to this attitude. Mr. Bennett is to be complimented in having the courage in his own convictions to his party. He 'might have followed the role of Naaman the Syr- ian, and bowed himself in the House of Rimmon, but to his credit the member for Calgary appears to be made of sterner stuff. IMPERIAL NAVAL SCHEME. A USTRALIA'will have none of Rt. Hon. AVin- ston Churchill's "contribution" scheme for an Imperial navy. Senator. Millen, Australia's minister of defence, comes out flst-focled ar.d Bays so. The first Lord of the Admiralty, whose apparent fondness for the contribution idea threatens to wreck whatever scheme for a Can- adian navy there ever was, will never meet with and the Australian people agreed to spend millions. (3) The abandonment of those fea- tures which the admiralty in 1909 consid- ered essential. (4) The adoption of mi impregnated ephemeral scheme for the defence of the. Pacific in place of a definite imperial co- operative policy. (5) The substitution of ineffective isolated units for a joint Pacific fleet. (6) Ah "interpretation of the 'Anglo- Japanese alliance which Australia does not accept. (7) .The ignoring of "other considera- tions" mentioned in the 1909 memoran- dum. (8) Vital departures from the policy agreed upon between the dominions and the imperial government, without previous consultation with, or notification to, the dominion governments. Senator, MUlen concludes: "Australia is irrevocably and' Will' determinedly and -consistently pursue the p'olicy on which she embarked' by the imperial government's advice live years ago. She' will not be deflected from her course by the first lord's pronounce- ment, since she regards the task she has undertaken as vital to the cause of imper- ial defence and imperial union." M> Millen adds that the 1909 agree- ment i'as designed to provide an Austral- ian fleet, charged primarily with the duty of assisting in the. protection of British Pacific interests and of relieving the royal navy of such tasks. This is the direct op- posite of the previous "contributions" pol- icy, to which Mr. Churchill suggests a re- version, the only difference being in the form of contribution. Matters cannot rest where they are, and the complete change of policy must be discussed at a conference. If this had been held last year, as the Commonwealth government suggested, the question would not have been overshadowed by the pres- ent lime of political stress, and the im- perial government would have known the dominions' views before making its state- ment There certainly should be a con- ference, Mr, Millen urges, at the earliest .possible moment in 1915. Australia's loyalty is not of the ships-without- men type. She believes in an Australian-owned navy. Canada once had aspirations in the same direction. Premier Borden shared them, too, un- til he formed the unholy alliance wjth the Quelrec Nationalists.. Then his loyalty, for political rea- sons, vanished into thin air, and instead of a Can- adian navy, of'Canadian vessels built by Canada favor in Australia if he persists in his present 16nd manned by Canadians, he concluded that a opinion, for the big natioa on the underside of Pile of glittering gold would serve the purpose the earth have an Australian navy or noth- ing. After the lamentable manner in which Can- ada, has-fallen down in her share of the original Imperial naval scheme oi 1909, due wholly io the misguided attitude of the present government at Ottawa, which wrecked Canada's hopes of ever doing her duty by the intrusion of the insulting money "ships-without-mcn" is most refreshing to read Senator Millcn's reply to the "contribution" idea, again advanced by Mr. Churchill in his speech introduc- 'ing the navy estimates on March 17. Senator Millen says Mr. Churchill's pronouncement in- yolven: (i) The definite non-fulfilment by Hie of tbe agreement of 1909. (2) The destruction: pf (lie basis on the Australian navy was organized just as well. It was the proverbial "just as good" substitute. But the Canadian people would have noncpf il, and we will yet prove our loyally to be born of the same good red blood that has caused Australia So spurn the money contribution idea, and hold out for a navy of her own under Die policy laid down in the naval conference of 1909 in which Canada played such an important part.

Toronto is willing to pay Mackenzie and Mnnn some for the street railway system in that city, is almost half of 000.
