MR. PRENDERGAST'S LECTURE. J At a later stage a recommendation from the Public Works Committee, that the'hail be granted free for a lec ture to be given by Mr. Prendergast 011 his travels in the Old Land, was vigorously discussed. ? . Cr. Davie's objected to the hall being granted free, for Mr. Prendergast himself had stated that the lecture would be two-thirds political; and he (Cr. Davies) did not think the free use of the hall should be granted for political purposes. Cr. Alexander remarked that if the P.L.C.- were so anxious to hear Mr. Prendergast give a political discourse, tjiey should pay for the use of the hall. The "Mayor explained (Cr.

Brooks Adams, in his "Law of Civilisation and Decay," developed the interesting thesis that civilisa tion advances only in those his torical periods in which the agen cies of military defence overbalance for a time the agencies of belli gerent attack. That is to say, the human race has - always found a respite from destructive warfare-a breathing space in which to develop the constructive arts and sciences whenever peace-loving nations have found means for making assaults upon their peace so difficult anil dangerous to the assailants that the game has not been worth the candle. j In the light of this principle the modern development of submarine fighting-craft deserves the respect ful attention of peace societies. An immense amount of expert tes timony is accumulating to the ef fect that submarines of ther Holland type are likely to prove so dreadful to Dreadnoughts that the ponderous nnval armaments that are sapping the strength ...
