Undeterred by Laurier's repudiation of alleged re- cent interview with its Ottawa cor- respondent, the Manchester Guardian today published another column and a quarter from the same correspond- ent under these headlines: "Birmingham preference ridiculed by Canadian Ministers, makes very jackasses laugh." The correspondent then admits that Launer refuses to express himself on election issues but gives verbal inter- views with one whom he calls a "nrominent colleague of which excites the greatest astonish- ment here. This minister's personal abuse of Lord Lansdowne is especial- ly resented by Unionists who also de- clare this Canadian minister's asser- tions to oe the grossest perversion of what a moment's inquiry would have shown him to be authoritative Union- ist policy.
