Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SIR DOUGLAS HAZEN HAS GOODRECORD New Knight Had a Long and Clean Record in Politics. NOT A GOOD DEBATER Naturally GeniaJ, But Not Popular-Appearance of Indestructible Complacency. Wllt:.\ the um whs forniPil it was n.f those elected to go, and to . .HiiiHTisulP him for his .acquiesccnco ill his iiolltical demise lie was np-liijiiittul Chief Justice of New Bruns-uiok. gome folks will possibly siig-i^esi that the K.C.M.G. which has just been conferred upon him Is an additional expression ot Sir Robert | Horden's. gratitude. However that may be. it titles are to bo granted, t=ir Douglas is much more entitled to one than the average Canadian public man. He gave several years ot v.iliant service to Canada at Ottawa, and prior to his going to Ottawa had long been in the public life ot his native Province. He never has been a self-advertiser, and seldom therefore got Into print, while at Ottawa devoting his energies chiefly to doing solid work in his department. No member of Sir Robert Borden's first War Cabinet gave more earnest thought to the war and Its problems than he. In his early days In Xew Brunswick politics he earned the sobriquet of "Dare-devil Doug." He won his spurs opposed to a group ot as shrewd and able politicians as his ProTlnco ever produced. When the big blow fell In 1S96 Hazen went down with the wreck, drifted Into Provincial politics and became leader ot the Conservative Opposition at a time when Conservatism In New Brunswick looked like a forlorn hope. Session after session, year after year, and elestlon after, election, he fought on with hope deferred,- but courage undlmraed ,and in 1D08 his sun rose with a victory that more than compensated for the ..long, weary marches In the desert ot N^pposition. And It was hardly sur-�jJtising that when Sir Robert Borden cast about him for a Cabinet he should have sought the services of Hazen. There was no 'one in New Urunswlck^comparable to him In po-Hitlcal esperieriee or who possessed ill .such generous measure the con-I'idenco of the public, irrespective of politics. .'� Kept His SkirU Clean I.\ llie turmoil and strife ot politics for nigh upon a quarter of a century in a Province where elections were not often won with prayers, he kept his record absolutely untar-pj.shed. He is an example of the old maxim that "honesty li the best policy"-honesty backed up by plain, iveryday qualities ot manliness. It ivas once said of a great British itatesman that he was gotten wrong; Jften on the wrong side; never on the side ot wrong." Hazen'a record Is well summed up In that epigram.

Armed with power to suppress all hostile publications-a power frequently exercised upon such periodicals as Harden's Die Zukunft, the Soclal-Democrntlc Vorwarts, and others far less radical -the Kaiser's government takes pains to see that his own views are authoritatively expressed in officially dictated articles furnished to the Norddeutsche Allgemeiae Zeltung and other inspired publications, which sometimes have a lively exper- !1E last the world heard of Mrs. Annie Bcsant she was, at the ago of nearly 70, a high priestess of theosophy.
