j THE PRINCE S VOYAGE. I Speech at St. Johns NEWFOUNDLANDS I PART IN THE WAR. ST. JOHN'S, August 121 j V (Received to-day). At the official luncheon this afternoon Government House, in response to the i o.'ist of his health, which was proposed by the Governor, the Prince of Wales said.â Your Excellency and gentlemen,â1 thank .you sincerely for the kind way in which you have drunk my health, and jnr your generous reference to the K illg and Queen. This loyal and ancient col- ony has always held a proud place in the British Empire, but it has won a still prouder position by its magi) ilicent ser- vices in the great war. Before the war you maintained your branch of the Royal Naval Reserve, and ou have sent 2,000 luen to the Royal Navy during the last five years. Then I know the splendid Newfoundland Regiment on the Western front, particularly on the Soinme at the end of 191G. and at Ypres during the sum- mer of 1917. when it was so long a unit of the famous 29th Division, with which it first saw active service in Gullipoli. Over 5,000 of your best sprved in that regiment, which has established a glorious record. I also do not forget the great services rendered bY Newfoundland seamen in the merchant service. Newfoundland has been a nursery of seamanship, ever since the days the fishing admirals ruled its coasts. In this war your merchant sea- men, whose work was perilous and ex- acting. have more than upheld their high traditions on the ocean in all parts o? th* world. Your Excellency. I want, through von, to express to the inhabitants of New- foundland and St John's my deep ap- -pwiatior and gratitude for the most Irmd and cordial leeeption which they have aeeorded me to-day. The warmth of their welcome and the many beautiful arches built for my arrival have touched j me very much." CIVIC FUNCTIONS. Forty guests were present at the lun- cheon. The Prince closed his speech with the toast, of the colony, coupled with the primes of the Governor (Sir Charles Har- ris), and the Premier (Sir A. F. Lloyd). Afterwards the Prince laid the corner stone of the new building for the Metho- dist College ir. a suburb of St. Tolin's, in the presence- of a large gathering. On the steps in front of Parliament Buildings lie presented medals for life saving to 35 men who took part in the work of rescuing the survivors of the wreck of the liner Florif.ol, off Cane Race in March. 1918. At this function the Mar- iufl Minister (Mr. Stone) explained the Mbiect of the gathering, and introduced vhe recipients to the Prince. The Prince s-hsequentlv inspected the Legislature < 'hambers, and sat in the chairs of the -;r^siding officers. The next item on thp programme was garden party attended by some 200 â¢'lK-sts, including the leading citizens of St. John's and their wives. At o'clock the Prince went to the ⢠j-ry Club for a round of golf, and re- famed'at eight for dinner.
