GENERAL HAMILTON'S OPINION.

THE DOMINION: AND THE

MOTHER COUNTRY

SOUTH AFRICAN WAR AN OBJECT

LESSON

■'■"'■-'; SYDNEY, March 1. General Sir lan Hamilton was entertained at dinner by the South African Association. .;. ■■'..-...;-.,'. „

Senator Millen said that in the assistance that Australia,,' New Zea-

land, and Canada rendered^to the Empire diiiring .the South ':^frican.. war there was involved ■ much more important question than the mere send^ihg of volunteer forces to' take part. Australia, like the rest of the Bominions, had been, from her infancy; reaping the benefits of the _great. Imperial connection in'times of peace and ! prosperity, but when the time of adversity came she was ready with a responsive reply from one'end of the Dominion to the other. Up to that period it was not known .what attitude the Dominions would, take in times of war. This was now made abundantly clear. Peace or' war, they':were part of the Empire. There were three •great things in the history of Australia —its foundation, its gift, and its responsible government. IJt was a great epoch-making event when Australia New Zealand, and Canada declared partnership for good or ill. Regarding English criticisms on the defence system, Senator Millen said he trusted that General Sir lan Hamilton would tell the people of England that the~ compulsory training system of the Commonwealth rested on .something more substantial than niilitary Jingoism.* Many thousands, were loyally and honestly doing their duty.
