THE PROTECTION OF THE PACIFIC.

PRIME MINISTER'S VIEWS.

Th© eniestion of the naval defence, of tho Pacific was referred to by the Prime Minister in his address at Pukekohe last evening. Tho people of Australia and New Zealand, Mr Massey said, could congratulate themselves on the fact that the Emrlon, -which had been tho terror of the Indian Ocean for such a long time, had at last been smashed up. This event added yet another laurel to those previously won by tho Australian Navy. The experience' of the past few weeks should bo a. lesson to the people of the South Pacific. Had it not been for the protection of the Australian Navy ho was afraid to think of what might have happened. The countries bordering on the Pacific should combine in providing a Pacific fleet. These seas were British seas, and we should keep them British for all time.
