negotiations to which the neoretary of

on by the joint high commission which
dealt with Canadian affairs. The
American, members of that commission
put forward a plan of permitting the
lake shipyards to build warships with
the understanding that the vessels
would not le fitted up and remain on
the lakes for naval service.
This was accepted by the British
Canadian officials with the additional
provision that the armor should not be
pill ceil on the warships, until after they
had reached salt water. This provision
would have been incorporated in the
final arrangement had not the commis
