John Wills had no hesitation in saying that there should be, both to deal with .the present crisis and any future crisis. If France had pursued the same policy as Great Britain the British Empire would have been under the heel of the Prussian to-day. They owed a good deal to Belgium, but they owed their Empire to conscription in France. Freedom had run riot in the British Isles, and they had got the idea of only defending them selves by the volunteer army. He had nothing to shy against the vol unteers, who had come, forward to the number of four millions in the British Isles, and over 100,000 in Australia.

He was an unimaginative. phlegmatic man. of the usual: type of English men-servants, and without any particular affection for his':master; but his share in this tragedy had-been like a nightmare to him. and the re capitulation of it had agitated him strongly. They gave him a little time to recover himself before they asked. him any questions. :Then the coroner ceased taking notes and addressed him.
