General Hertzog and indicates to what a his principal colleagues made' it clear feeling has thought agues ___ that their program envisaged republic- anism and secession from the empire, a prospect that, in the view of the Dutch-speaking businessmen, meant isolation and stagnation. At the same time the representa- tives of the rural Boers were indif- ferent to or suspicious of General Smuts' economic policies, which were intended to foster the development ot manufacturing and other industries ia South Africa. General Smuts' next move was to issue a manifesto "appealing to all right-minded South Africans, irrespec- tive of party or race to join a new party, which will be .strong enough to safeguard the permanent interests of the union against the disruptive and destructive policy of the Nation- alists." Shortly afterward, in October last, a congress of the South African party was held, but the delegates de- clined to form a new party, and offer- ed the Unionists and others the pros- pect of absorption, rather than of part- nership. So when the.Unionist con- vention .was held two weeks Sir Thomas Smartt called upon his fol- lowers to sweep aside all considera- tions of the party, -all doubts and all thoughts of bargaining and "do the big thing in a big way." Although it was not an easy matter for the Unionists to efface themselves and abandon honorable and valued associations they decided to cast in their lot with the South African party with an enthusiasm 'which was sur- prising. The spirit In which the sac- rifice svas made was .evidently inspir- ed by admiration of the roie played by the South African parly during the war. General Smuts, strengthened by the amalgamation, then began to proclaim the danger of the Nationalist policy and its possibilities of civil war. Hort- zog answered that wheii the National- ists talked of republicanism' they were thinking of a remote future. "Neither I nor any Nationalist" want i blood he declared. "It is norely one of Smuts' bogieo." The Nationalist leaders then began to tress the economic issues telliiiK the farmers that the bad conditions of tho country were duo to Smuts and his English friends.

''The victory hag a double signific- ance, it is a complete rebuff for the Meighen government and it is a bril- liant triumph for Liberal ideas."

Halifax Chronicle "Tho verdict is not only a grim dis- appointment; it is a smashing defeat for the government and following so closely its dramatic reverse in East Elgin, it may well prove disastrous. At all events, it is unmistakeable evi- dence that Ontario has ceased to be a Conservative stronghold and the government has not won popular confidence." Saskatoon Star; "Both Liberals and Conservatives are now clamoring for an election as a result of this live-election. There is reason for one. undoubtedly, but hav- ing waited KO long it is Just a ques- tion whether the country could not afford to wait one year and see, and enable the west, after the census this year, to tfet the increased representa- tion to which it is entitled." The Fort William Times-Journal: "It is hardly libnly that Premier Meighen will take the verdict of West Peterboro as a mandate to go to tho country. "A group election, like a group gov- ernment, :L somewhat ungatis- factroy basis for determining the sen- timent of the majority of the electors, and the deductions tAat may bo drawn from the result in West Peterboro will be as varied as tha opinions of the persons eiprcssing them."
