EMPIRE'S I.ATENT RESOURCES. A NOBLE PARTNERSHIP. LONDON, March 31. Jir A. J. Balfour, addressing a gath; ering of 10,000 in the Agricultural Hall. said that nothing was more moving or magnificent thaii the unsolicited response of New Zealand. With a population equal to five but of the 28 London boroughs, her gift was equivalent to more per head than the annual taxation per bead in Great Britain. If such gifts were accepted, Britain could not refuse the oversea* States preference. A fiscal change was now inevitable. The new system must grant what the whole constellation of sister States had steadily, persistently and patiently asked for year after year. All the newspapers display New South Wales' and Victoria's Dreadnought offer. The "Standard" says the value of the Australasian gifts sinks almost into insignificance beside the moral effect of their noble partnership in the work of Imperial defence. The "Daily Mail"' says the splendid offer has been received with the warmest gratitude, and indicates the enormous latent resources in men and money of the Empire. The "Daily Graphic," applauding New South Wales and Victoria, adds: "The Commonwealth realises that it is impossible to have a voice in the control of the Imperial Navy without Imperial federation, which colonial opinion is as yet unprepared for."
