The Times continues: "His reply to Flefdfng represents, we are confident, not only the sellkd view of the overwhelming majority of Canadians on the position of Canada, but a view which the peoples of all the Dominions hold 2K to the real status within the Empire of their several countries. Mr. Doherly gave a conclusive answer to the argument that by giving her approbation to the league and to the covenant Canada is abandoning control by her parliament over her miliUry forces. No self governing community can be driven Into war or ordered into war against id own will. In all such communities legislation [3 essential to make the conduct of war positble and Iht mere apprehension that a legislature would refute or refuse supplies under the pressure of public opinion muil effectually prevent any responsible government and, slill more, any democratic government from embarking upon a which public conscience and public judgment do not heartily support."
