The Toronto Telegram worships IJobt. L. Itichardson of tho Winni -peg Trlbunel It trios to make- out that Htchardson sacrificed political proferment for tho sake of his principles; when as a matter of truth, vanity was tho key to nobs depart-vanity was tho key to Hobs departure from the Liberal party. > If Jos.

Tho Cranbrock Hera'd is lo be commended on the attitude it takes towards tho McRride government in Rritish Columbia. Tho Herald supported the Liberal party in the recent campaign with vigor and a1'!! -lty but as soon as the battle wus ov�r, tho "Old Man" admits defeat like a man and talks such good sense is the following: Tho Herald de-aires to say at this time that in all matters th.t are for the ndvanoo -I ment of tho province as a whole. Mr. Mcllride will receive its support. Tho Herald stands for Rritish Columbia and for tho Cranbrook district. It | believes that the progress of Ihi province and the district Is of far more J importance than the political ad-Jvanccroent of any party or any individual. Mr. Mcllndo will not find tho Herald a carping critic, but en tho centrary he will find thj Herald j standing up for all that Is good for jtho proUncc, all that promises pros-'pority, all that Rill aid the in-j dividual and tho people as a whole.
