"Tlifc Telegram, like all other Con- scrviUive papers, praised .Major Leon- it rd warmly when he fo.ok ofiice. it declares that the government, in ap him "appears to iiave made a. mistake.'

"It'will readily admitted that the qualifications of Major Leonard appeared to fit him for the work to which "he .was assigned. The Tele-j gram commended the appointment, when .it was announced, but events liavexnot justified the expectations. "Any commission would be an im provement on the old .commission.
