Imperial Naval Defence.

United Press Association—Per Electric Telegraph—Copyright. London, May 21 Sir Michael Hicks Peach, speaking at the Imperial Industries Club's dinner, declared that it would be a grave mistake in the interest of the Empire if any self governing colony were to maintain an independent navy, instead of joining in the cost of the great Imperial Navy.^ If anything like proportional contributions were received from the colonies, the latter must be admitted to the councils of the Empire, to aesist in deciding the policy of the Empire and the cost of the navy. Promotion of further union should be on the lines oE a common defence as parts of a common Em- , pire. Mr [James, Agent-General for Western Australia, said that Imperialistic feeling in Australia was stronger than in Britain. The desire to develop a separate navy did not arise because of a wish to shirk responsibilities.
