His speech yester- day was a case hi point. A smaller man, knowing that the naval defence question is hedged about with difficul- ties, and that even in the Liberal party there is much difference of opin- ion in respect to it, might have felt it the part expediency to treat the matter, at this stage, with indiffer- ence. Not so with Sir Wilfrid. He seized the first opportunity to take a position which.'all the world can un- derstand. He said, simply and plain- ly, that we are not merely Canad- ians, but citizens of the British Era- the fact that harmony and unity of action upon this matter of navalt de- fence is of the first consqquence. They are apt to forget that extreme pro- posals, such as to pay moneys to an- other government for purposes of de- fence, would arouse antagonisms that might make it the cause of much do- mestic irritation and geartburnings. They probably have not given suffic- ient thought to the subject to realize that under any other leader than Sir Wilfrid Laurier the policy now pro- posed to be followed would be fraught with grave danger of shipwreck. A little consideration of this point of view should lead to a very general acceptance of the principle of the gov erriment's propositions, whatever pire that as such it is our duty to may be said as to their details. We assume the obligations incident to be retaining our dearly-prized that membership that we should, in 1 nucleus of a navy-working on lines performing that duty, retain all our self-governing powers, and that there- fore our best policy is to make beginnings of a navy. the that will admit of natural and na- tional in all its years to come. We will be retaining our dear- Iv-prized powers of self-government, Ul a i- j.' There is no ambiguity about this; and at the same time acting m close no blinking as some people blink, the co-operation with the rest of the Em- fact that the subject is not alone a Pire. We will be assuming a growing Canadian one. We have many in share of the obligations of citizenship Canada who support the naval pro- within the British Empire, without I LethMdie-Weyburn Realty Ci.

Sir Wilfrid tells them, what is, of course, the the pro- posed navy is to co-operate with the Imperial navv. as evidence of our membership in the Empire. It is well that this fact should be appreciated at its full significance. As Mr. W.F- Maclean said, we are. at the parting of the ways, inasmuch as we are, for the first time, declaring a settled pol- icy, the essence of which is a recog- nition of Imperial responsibility. When we sent Canadians to South Af- rica the action was labelled "not a precedent." Today, we find the Pre- mier foreshadowing a policy of ex- penditure upon a measure avowedly i! devised for the advantage of Canada as a member of the Empire. It is a j situation full of significance, which! Sir Wilfrid has illuminated by -his i courage and common-sense so that j misconception of what is meant is no' longer possible. It is open to question if those mem- bers of the Opposition who are pre- pared to demand that Parliament should oppose the Premier's policy, and should make direct contributions to the British exchequer, at all ap- preciate how much ground has been gained for them, as sincere believers in the maintenance of the Empire, by Sir Wilfrid's clear-cut and outspoken declarations. They ignore, we fear. straining the relations, now so cord- ial, of the different races within our Canadian nationality. It is easy to find objections, to the project of a Canadian navy. It is im- possible, we believe, to find any other project that will at the one time sat- isfy our national ideals and fulfill our Imperial obligations. x SOME SINGERS WHO SING SOME WITH JUVENILE BOSTONIANS AT THE LYCEUM TONIGHT CLARKE ff CO, The Ladies' Store Phone 453 Acadia Block WE SELL FOR CASH FINDING OF COMMISSION Find i special qualifications on comparative records.
