"I do not question at all the sin- cerity of the charge of Sir, ...corge Foster He was sincere at the time, I have no doubt, but his confession was not accompanied with repentance and determination to do better. He wcnted to do better. Ills confession resulted almost in these words: 'Let us agree on hereafter patronage shall be eliminated.' (Laughter.) word!

The War for Civilization "I need not'tell yon that we meet under the shadow of a ten lulu war, which for Ihe past two y.ars has been desolating Europe and engross- ing Iho attention of the civilized world Neither would it be amiss 11 one.- more 1 recall that I bin war is a war for civilization. If there be any- one in this audience, or elsewhere, who may be of Ihe opinion that U'.is been said too often, that it might lie left unsaid, 1 beg to dissent.

The Aphorism Fallacious "No sir, in the face of this there In reason to believe that the policy liritain In the past should be dif- ferent from the policy In the future. There is an aphorism current that if you want peace you should prepare for war. I do not know the origin of the aphorism.

Hut in this we, and the people ot Canada have been to a large extent disappointed." (Cries of Hear, heal.) Civil Expenditure Not Cut Down. It became the bounden duty of the Government. In view of the heavy calls for military expenditure aud the serious sacrifices which confronted the people of Canada, to refucc all i i nirr.i-v civil eop strike off every that i mild with without Unerring the national ser- vice.

Ihe fact is expenditure has beer, growing and growing and growing-going on us merrily aa iu the piping times of usurps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time. "Tomorrow went by. and wilh to- morrow went by also the suggestion and resolution of Sir George Foster, never to return again until the last syllable of recorded time of this Government, the; present Government, of which lie is an ornament, but not one of the masters. (Applause.) Now Time if ever to Get Rid of Patronage Plague "If his patronage had been elim- naled from the Budget of this year, 'rom the estimates of this year, it would have made an appreciable re- duction. The patronage was patronage is a -ubiquitous, omnipres- ent, omnivorous rover, devouring any- thing, everything in which there is any public money. It has a voracious, insatiable appetite. Patronage is a plague, and if ever there was a time to be done with it, it is this calamitous time la which we are now living, in which everybody should bo determin- ed to have the biggest possible econ- omy, the greatest possible reduction in the burden of the people. (Ap- plause.) "In the estimates of this year there is no loss a sum than ap- propriated lo the Public Works De- partment, presided over by Hon.

Does anyone imagine that if Great Britain had adopted the German sys- tem she would have displayed the same power she has since the begin- ning of this contest? Does anyone suppose that if Britain had adopted I of Wellington the German system, and had taken every generation year after year as they came of military age and remov- ed those young men from the farm, from the shop, from the. professions, from schools and universities, and placed them in camps aud barracks, and taxed the rest of the nation to keep them under the charge of the Drill Sergeant, anyone believe that England would have been able to stand the strain of spending J2S.OOO.OOO every day to finance not only her own "part, but Russia Italy, Canada. Australia and -New Zealand, and that on a gold basis, out of her own resources? The answer by contrast is that Germany may have been spoken or they may not have, but they express the true spirit of the Prussian.
