Right on top of Geo. E. Foster's declaration that Canada was bound -to -support Britain, with either a na- imit or a cash contribution, comes our Dominion member, C. A. Ma- grath, M.B. with, a practical declara- tion against a Canadian navy. Mr. Eoster wants a Canadian or something equivlent at once. Mr. .Magrath doesn't seem to be in a rush ,for a.-navy oi any sort. It is rather .peculiar attitude to take, since he de- himself in favor of the resolu- tion passed at Ottawa at the last ses- when the plan outlined clearly .indicated a Canadian navy to pro- tect our coast lines ami trade routes. The IRISH LAND BILL Hamilton Herald commented one day last week on the Irish Land it is of peculiar interest "now in view -of the'rejection of the measure by the Lords: Of all the Irish land bills the one which has just passed the House of Commons and is before-the House of Lords and is by far the most radical and drastic. The'one introduced by Mr. Wyndham was a long step in advance of any of its predecessors. It provided for the gradual transfer of the land from landlord to tenant by a system of voluntary purchase and sale, the Imperial government furnishing the money for buying the land and the tenants acquiring it on terms of purchase so favorable that fch-ei payments are not much more than the old -rent. The value; of the land is fixed by a judicial commis- sion. No modern measure, probably hits' done more fur the material pros- perity of Ireland than the Wyndham Act. Under it many thousands of land have been transferred and are now in possession of small farmers. But. tine WynJham act is not a com- -pulsory measure. It does not compel landlfrds to sellout who don't .wish, to ao so. The new bill compels land- lords to sell. It runs counter to the olj adage that a man may do -what he with his own. If a landlord's land is wanted by'his tenants., the land commission can, under try new legislation; make him sell it'whether; lie wants to or no. And he must sell not only the lands occupied by his tenantry but also his demesne land land, that is. which immediate- ly his residence and which lie may wish to reserve a? pleasure 'grounds.
