There is also Ihe suggestion jhal has been considered in olher making, the.fart five cents straight.

SIR Lyman Melvin .Jones, presidenl of th MHSsey Harris Co., announces that he ca no longer support Ihe Liberals for the very pal able reason that (he Liberal parly has declare thai il is np longer prepared lo bolster up Ihe in- dustry of which he is the head. From Ihe slanoS of Ihe Liberal parly it is n cnse. of good rid- dance lo i heavy burden. The Conservative parly is welcome lo tills head of another great inicreM, Ihe. agricultural implement interest. Thai is his place. The self binder knight will he more al home in Ihe high prolcr tionisl ranks of the Tory parly. In Hie past Sir Lyman has hern n heavy bur den for the Liberals lo cam-. When only slight reductions in the agricultural implement tariff were made iu reciprocity pact of 1911, il was contended, and undoubtedly with a gofjil deal oi that the close relations of !lio Masscy Harrii head willi the Liberal parly was respon- sible.' At Ibis session of Hie Dominion parliament the. Liberal party unanimously declared for free Biricullural implements; II offended Sir Ly m on Mervin Jones and he is going lo quit, ile had be- come imbued with Ihe idea the Liberal party would ralhcr descrl ils principles Ilinn lose his i tupport, when he woke up one morning lo REDISTRIBUTION AND A GENERAL ELECTION 1.7 LL THERE BE A general elecliou Not much chance. By all the laws of precedent and .common ecency there sliould be, but we are afraid night, nol right, will prevail, :md Premier Bor- len and his colleagues will seek safely by Ihe rcfltion of :i precedent of their own. ..A general.election should follow redislribu- ion.

Hardly looks righl, does il? would never tiappen in Ihe Mother country, -whence Canada is supposed lo get its political example. There arc two reasons why there will nol be an election in 1914. One is the hope lhat-lime may remove lliat grand old leader, Sir Laurier, from the direction of Ihe'Liberal forces. The other is the hope lhat good crops and a sql- llemenl of the world unrest may disperse the financial gloom.
