The British Empire might ,be termed more or less a voluntary empire. Might we not safely say that history sbows that tbe Dominions came into the folds of the Empire because of their high regard for and sympathy with British rule.

It is because Great Britain granted free and autonomous govern- ment to Its Dominions that those Do- minions today are so eager to assist Uie Mother Country in the struggle which is taking place in Europe. We enjoy the fullest freedom of govern- ment. have absolute control of our own affairs; we have just as much freedom as the ceople who boast of freedom under any republican form of government. Naturally, we appreciate the generous treatment of the Mother Country, and so it is no that the. whole British Em- pire is linked together in a chain of steel at the present moment to com- ibat ail the influences which if dom- in the world would destroy the IJ'vrty, the freedom, and the justice which we now enjoy. There is no more striking or elo- quent illustration of the meaning of the British Empire than the case of South Africa. Within the memory of moit of us South Africa was at war with Great Britain. After a long and bitter struggle Great Britain was vic- torious. The Boers were conquered and Great Britain took control of the government of South Africa. What did the do? DI-J she act as Germany would have acted and govern the newly conquered peopla with a hand iron directed by militdry leaders? toria, more men and women of the pnre and untainted character of the Jtotber of tie Empire. Queen Victoria lived a life as a woman and as a Sovereign worthy of the emulation of every man and woman. It ii the habit of some Conservative newspapers and very many Conserva- tive speakers to claim that the Lib- eral party interfered with tlie Domin- ion government's war program. There Is no more pronounced supportar of the Borden government than the To- onto News and here is what It says: .While the opposition in Parliament las taken every opportunity to dis- credit the Bordeen government and has maintained a steady attack upon ts members, its policy and its ad- ministration, it is still true that the appropriations necessary to put Can- adian armies in the field have not been opposed. Moreover, thousands of Liberals are in Canadian regiments at home at the front. hundreds of Liberals have their Wood for Canada and for the Empire. It would, therefore, be un- speakable infamy for. tho Conserva- tive press to denounce Liberals as "traitors to their and only out of mad partisanship and utter malignity could such a suggestion proceed. That should be sufficient rebuke to tlie elements heie, as elsewhere, who try to claim all the loyalty for the Conservatives and TVho also misrepre- sent tho attitude taken by tho Libers' party on war expenditures. tne niiuwii PUJOH..IH. of Ottawa, has been appointed iy the Minister of Militia, as a spe- :ial member of the Canadian medical 'orce at the front, to look after wounds and diseases anecting the eye, car, nose unii throat.
