Excerpt from Under Fire N 0 metal can be assumed to be sound and true until it has been proved and found capable of bearing the stress and strain of rough usage, and in the same way no case based upon argument can be held to be established until those arguments have been subjected to searching and, it may be, hostile criticism. It is therefore a matter of satisfaction that the case which is set up by the Imperial Federation (defence) Committee has gone through the ordeal of a searching and not over-friendly criticism. It is for the readers of the following correspondence to form their Opinion as to how far that correspondence has weakened or estab lished the propositions laid down by the Committee in their earlier publications as true, important, and worthy of accepta tion. It is not necessary in these introductory remarks to attempt a detailed analysis of the arguments which are used on either side of the correspondence which follows. The letters speak for themselves, and some attempt has been made, by adding a brief summary at the foot of each letter, to guide the hasty reader to the principal points in each communication. But on the main issue the Committee venture to believe that only one conclusion can be arrived at by the impartial student of this controversy, namely, that the facts as originally laid down by the Imperial Federation (defence) Committee are absolutely true and unimpeachable 3 that they have not been impeached 3 nay, more, that they have been, without a single exception, admitted by the critics of the Committee as matters which cannot be controverted or denied.
