But, ludicrous as this appears, his authority stops at the shores of tho Atlantic; - he has nothing more to do, actually, with the administering, officering �awd equipping of the Canadian troopS overseas than his office-boy has. Tills anomaly is due to one of tho biggest blunders made by the late gov any �w One of "tho,devices resorted ttPTh an attempt to cope with the inimitable activities of Sir Sam .Hughe3 during his occupancy of tho "Ministership of Militia wis tho' creation of the portfolio of Overseas-. Minister of Militia, with headquarters in Loudon. Sir George Perloy, the Canadian commissioner, filled this position in the late government; and when the Union government was formed Sir Edward Kemp exchanged the portfolio of resident, minister of miliiia for that, of overseas minister. He gave up, that is to say, the shadow for the substance; for it is incontestable that as regards power or opportunity for dis11 nc-tlon it far outranks thfe parent office.

An oppo-.' matter. This comedy was repentnd over and over again. One could not fttij to bo impressed by the evident .sublime indifference of Ihe Olympian Gods of Argyln ilonso to the perturbations of tho Canadian house of commons. It was not difficult in iumgluuttoit to have a vision of tho spick and span young officer, resplendent, in his regalia, filing tho cablegrams as received with 'appropriate comments on the "bally nasoa" at Ottawa and their inordinate thirst, for Information. 1 Tho present status relieves Mnjor-Gcnoral Mewburn.of-a. very disagrec-i able "chore" and transfers it .to tho j government as a.\ wnole.

A. Campbell, Unionist, was elected by acclamation. He was n former Liberal member for Dauphin in the Manitoba legislature. �> > > ? > ? * > > O > �> at least in great measure, the henso of Krievanco which appuars to W very general throughout, the ovor-strrs forces particularly those at the actual front. It, is pretty well agreort that If the Union government had not been 'formed, the troops in tho field - in the event of an ordinary party election would have voted opposition by a very large majority. It will be recalled that after the formation of tho present government the new uilnlritcrrf, all Liberal*;, addressed a joint cablegram to the troops in Kuglnnd and France inking cognizance of the grievances of the soldiers and giving pledges of reform. The leading Liberal imw.s-papers in Canada, through their uliters, addressed a similar joint cablegram to the soldiers for the same purpose of inducing them to abandon their attitude of hostility to the Ottawa administration and give their support to the new government. The recently published figures of the voting in Francc and Great Britain, show how whole heartedly tho men responded to this appeal. The time has now come to keep faith with them. Most of . Urt5 trouble originates with the headquarters stuff in London. With certain exceptions, where positions are held by men who have rendered notable services at the front, the staff represents the high water mark., of the old era. of political pull and personal favoritism.

There is not a member of the cabinet who has not had his attention directed to aped fie cases of favoritism and Injustice. The government is-uware that the army in France, and to a considerable measure the fofces In Kngland, too. expect it to deal drastically witb this situation. Public opinion in Canada will be equally Insistent when it learns the facta. There is a widely-held view What tho way not to deal with the difficulty is to leave it to an overseas minister of militia; No ordinarr man, resident in London, can withstand the influences which can be brought into action In defence of things as they are. The first step is to abolish this office and reestablish^ direct control from Ottawa. The authority of the minister of militia should '-cover the whole expeditionary force. With -this don* conditions overseas would,, it Is believed, show prompt improvement.

Twenty Year's Service For more than twenty-five years, John E. Redmond fought for home rule in Ireland and for a majority of that time he was the recognized leader of Ireland's "struggle for liberty." As chairman of the Irish parliamentary party-the Nationaltsts^-he exerted a powerful Influence in bringing about the creation of the Irish convention, orgaz ized in July, 1917, to devise a system of governments for Ireland. When Premier Lloyc Ueorge in that year offered two methods of settling the Irish question, it was Redmond, who, as spokesman of the Nationalists rejected the proposition for a partlt-! ion of Ireland, and, Instead, accepted! Lloyd George's plan for the calling of \ the Irish convention in which Irish-" men of nearly all parties and creeds mi�iit'meet in the effort toxcompose their difficulties and draft a constitution that would afford justice to all. Redmond was'one of Uie delegates to the convention which met at various times at Dublin, Belfast and Cork in 1917 and 1913. John Redmond had eat almost continuously In the British house of Commons since 1S81. There his parliamentary fight for home rule earned for him the sobriquet of the "stormy petrel of the house." Educated in CTongowes Wood College, East Clare, and Trinity College. Dublin, Redmond was called to the London bar in 1SSG and the Irish bar the following year, but he never practiced law. He devoted himself almost wholly to his parliamentary and political duties. Redmond's eloquence and his gra3p of parliamentary procedure won his early recognition in parliament and when, in 181)1, the Irish party was disrupted, consequent on the Parnell Manitoba, having come from England over 35 years ago.
