Senate ap-pofntnietits usually are a ' recognition of party service'and go to men who have served years in the ranks of the party In power. There are exceptions to that rule, and Mr. Harmcr's appointment is an instance. Mr. Jflchener's selection Is undoubtedly due to his service to tlfe Conservative party though of course we expect the "union governnient to make appointments for other reasons than party service. It should try to make the senate a more useful body. Mr. Michener can help in making it useful, for he la a comparatively yoMng man, a hard worker and eager to serve the public. Mr. Harmer's career In the senate will be the most closely watched. His appointment,means the test of a new type, a civil servant of good executive ability comparatively unknown to the general public. - His choice was made by Mr. Sitton, whose Intimate friend and associate he has been. If it proves to be an i^iwise ap-pdlntm'ent Mr. Slfton must.bear tne responsibility-�(tttirely� Mr. SIBton knows hlT^ Hanier- better than anybody .else and In choosing him for one of the vacyiiclea: he surely must have thought b^tf':wai fitted for the,8e;nate.,,thi^ is sure .Mr. Harmer la aa well, if qiotv better qualified tor the senate-'than lianrmen now abidhig fb�n.:CW� admit also that he', has ability, eneffy .and, resourcefulness, and the-application of these qualities to 'service In the senate would do much 'to- make it more useful to the country.
