¡ IMPERIAL DEFENCE. AUSTRALIA'S OFFER. Mr. Deakin, the Federal Prime Minister, has telegraphed to the Imperial Government offer- ing a Dreadnought or a corresponding addition to the Imperial Navy such as may meet with the approval of the home Government. Mr. Deakin has just become Premier of the Commonwealth of Australia for the third time, having succeeded Mr. Fisher, the Labour leader, and one of the very first acts of the new Ministry has been to follow the lead given by New Zealand in offering a Dreadnought for the Navy. The decision of the late Administration to refrain from making this offer gave rise to a good deal of comment. The Premiers of the States of New South Wales and Victoria offered to provide a Dreadnought between them should the Federal Government not do so, and local committees were formed for the purpose of raising subscriptions to defray the cost. I The Montreal correspondent of the "New York Times states that Canada has decided to have a Navy, and that a nucleus is to be formed by the construction of eight cruisers and ten torpedo-boats, at a cost of £ 5,000,000. The primary idea is coast defence, and the secondary the creation of a Navy capable of assisting the Mother Country in time of need.
