Last week the Col- lingwood Enterprise described the bride as "daintily attired in white j paint" tde and a few days ago a Lindsay paper told its wonder- ing readers that-the "groom" was beautifully decorated with a 'uxur- flowers and ferns. that a. mutual understanding has 'been j arrived at, whereby the Liberal and j Labor forces will present a united front against the Tory Opposition.'; This attitude, combined with the un- divided support of the Irish Nation- alist party means much to the suc- cess of the present -agitation, and .will, doubtless, result in a glorious victory for the Liberal Government. It is more than likely, however, Hardie and Henderson will be made objects of much criticism, by the more ultra radical element ha the j Labor movement. Indeed, insinua- i tions are, already, freely made that! the British Labor Party have sold j out to the Asquith Government, "lock, stack and barrel." But such j things are always said, and invari- j ably without foundation. There are many men, on both sides of politics whose ideals are as lofty and whose desires for a bettor form of sovern- ment, arc as great and praiseworthy as those whose only weapon is at- tack.

So long as we are governed by ma- jority rule, that party which can secure the largest number of votes is justified in claiming that they best represent the people. Take the case of Sam Gompers, the perpetual pre- ability to give good service to sidcnt of the American Federation of: city. Labor. Efforts are annually made to j oust him from the presidency, but; hitherto without success. He is therefore justified in pursuing the pol- f icy of the majority which elected him. As he realizes the demands for a change of policy and the adoption of a more radical program, which j will manifest itself when his support-j ers are rwidy for the change, he will as readily and naturally adjust him- self to the new demands. Of course., the ultra radicals claim ttiat Gompers has his followers mes- merized, who simply do his bidding. But this does not mend matters, because it is paying a much higher tribute to the personality of Gomp- ers that his opponents would be an- xious to render besides being a seri- ous reflection on the intelligence of those supporting him. It is in fact, equivalent to claiming that those only arc intelligent who oppose him, i or in other words, that, minorities have the preponderance of brains, j which is as insulting as it is irra-! tional.
