The lack of fortifications and troops between Canada and the United States, contrasted with countries in Europe. Bringing the nations to which we belong to the point of good manners as we have reached between individuals. The actions of the President of the United States in the direction of peace. The great result brought about at Portsmouth. The popular title of peace-maker won by the King. The speaker's desire for the time to come when every American would feel at home under the Union Jack, and every Canadian to feel at home under the flag of the U.S. Canada and the U.S. in a good position to set an example to the world. The matter of arbitration, a ticklish one to touch upon. The ideal arbitrator. The arrangement that was made between Great Britain and the United States back in 1817. The ignorance about this Treaty. Some details of this arrangement. What things would have been like on the Toronto waterfront without this Treaty. No reason why the advocates of peace should go to the great Powers and say to them: "Here is a little simple arrangement that has worked over here in the West and why can't the same principle be applied in the Pacific?" The great minority in the U.S. who think there is no place for great armies and great armaments. Doing something to create a public sentiment that will refuse to go any further in the somewhat unneighbourly manner that has been in the past.
