IS OPPOSED TO FREE T.RADE Premier Barton of Australia Hopes for Tariff Concessions in British Empire. [ll' ASSOtltAfF.

Mutual tariff concessions within the em pire stand on a more practical basis and he hoped to see the difficulties in the way of such concessions removed. Cuba Is Disappointed.

LORD BERESFORD - CRITICISES NAYY MISTAKES MADE BY THE BRITISH ADMIRALTY CALLED ATTENTION TO IN HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Ys ASSOC(IAIF I) n1'51)S.J London, June zo.-I-)uring the discus sion, of the navy estimates in the house of commons today, Hear Adumiral LIord Charles iBeresford, conservative, scathing ly criticised the deficiencies of the navy. lie declared the whole admirlity sys tem was rotten and leads to great extrava g.;nce and that there was a general want of efhciency in the navy on which de pended the success of the empire. This was the judgment of all comnmis sions of inquiry and had been proven a fact. ]Every increase in the number of ships and every improvement in them hadl been the result of outside agitation: As a result o( such agitation, the British Med iterranean fleet was now a fourth stronger than a year ago. It is reamarkable, Lord Iteresford add ed, that both army, innd navy oflicers were compelled to threaten to resign in order to get things righted Great Britain had only 20,o00 naval re serves instead of the requisite 8,o0oo, and the engine-room departments were thous ands of men short. As to armanment, both the United States and France possessed superior guns. Blunders would continue until a sep arate board was appointed at the admir alty, and was made responsible for the efficiency of the fleet. The treasury con trol was fatal to efficiency. As an instance, the speaker pointed out the ease of Sir William Vernon-Ilartcourt who, when chancellor of the exchequer, it his pen through the ammunition sup plies after the guns had been ordered.
