FIGHTING FOR A STRONG NAVY.
AUSTRALIAN SUPPORT. LONDON, March 23. The Sydney newspapers' suggestion that the overseas dominions offer a Dreadnought, Mr Fisher's eulogy of the spirit that had proposed an Australian Dreadnought, and the splendid offer of Sydney citizens at Sir Harry Rawson's farewell banquet, are keenly appreciated. The naval question is dominating the Croydon by-election. Newspapers state that Mr Asquith, Sir Edward Grey (Secretary for Foreign Affairs), and Mr McKenna (First Lord of the Admiralty) fought throughout in Cabinet for a strong navy. Many petitions have been presented to the Lord Mayor for a city meeting to support Mr Asquith's Guildhall declaration.
