As- sociated leading Lon- don dailies publish interesting critic- isms this morning on the appointment ot Hon. Winston ChUfchlll to ths co- lonial office. The. Chronicle, the chief coalition organ, repels the insinua- tions already levelled from some quar- ters that Mr. Churchill's appointment means reckless military adventure in the mandated territories and co- lonial possessions. The Chronicle adds that a change which would re- move the great self-governing domin- from the sphere of the colonial office is not, only one which the do- minions but one which will free the colonial office from the com- plications ot separate tasks and al- low It to concentrate Us efforts on the more homogeneous business which properly belongs to it. Tha Morning Post, the chief organ of Toryism, which in spite of the fact that Mr. Churchill did brilliant work as its correspondent during the South 'African war, has long displayed ex- treme hostility to-him, says it would be ungracious to now recall the blun ders which would long ago have end- ed the career of any other politician, and wishes him well, declaring that it is no reflection upon himself that the premier seems to have considered political exigencies in filling the of- fice. The minister will start with a great opportunity, the Post adds, for the self-governing colonies are now In fact partners in a vast, but dimly- realized, enterprise of developing a common inheritance lor the common good. The Daily- Telegraph discusses the character of Mr. Churchill in a genial manner, remarking that he not only admires the empire, but understands it, and is therefore unlikely to treat the dominions with the haughty pat- ronage and unsympathetic aloofness which iii the past made Downing Street a term of reproach. Mr. Churchill, it thinits, is likely to follow in the footsteps of Joseph Chambler- lain who broke definitely with the earlier bureaucratic tradition. la ad- mitting that the dominions are some- what disposed to break loose from the colonial office and deal only with the premier, the Telegraph merely observes that vhlle the colonial, of- fice may bo shorn r" Home of its func- tions, it will have sufficient responsi- bilities in any c.ase. politics, but thought it best that care should be taken to secure labor anil soldier support in the campaign.
