FORERUNNER OF TYPE Of Politicians Who Put Before Is a Clever Speaker. By M. GKATTAN O'LEARf. THE most interesting moment In tho House of Commons this s.'ssion was when William Fol- der Nickle broke from the ranks of Ws political friends and associates, and opposed, the. Government on the question of the-. C.N.R. Anyone who knows anything of the party spirit at Ottawa-'-of its narrowness, bitter- ness, unreflecting hates and tho difficulties which come into the free play of the mind, whenever one has decided to take service with ons party or another, will have some slight appreciation of the courage and loyalty to conviction which in- spired speech of the brilliant "young from arid which gave to it the tremendous pow- er that only earnestness can impart. Yet no one who lias followed the poli- tical career of "W. F. Nickle, short, but independent and could be at all surprised at his decision. In the Ontario Legislature he crossed swords with the redoubtable Sir James Whitney on more than one occasion, 'and never with dis- honor. The crack the party whip, even in the bands oC a master like Sir James, had no terrors for him That.his course was approved of is best attested to by the fact that in 1911 he succeeded in bringing King- ston back', into the .Conservative column after It bad gone Liberal for seventeen since the death of Sir John Slacdonald.
