The Conservative Leadership THIS PERIODICAL effort to oust It. L. Borden from the leadership of the Conservative party again seems to have resulted in a failure. One wing of the party after another gets dissatisfied with the leader, and makes a kick. Sometimes the insurrection assumes serious proportions, as It apparently has in the reciprocity embroglio. but on this ;s on all other occasions the plot has failed, because of the inability of the party to get another man who could lend any better. Borden is not a real leader. He has not the enthusiasiu. per. sonal magnetism, nor organizing ability that must supplement any mans statesmanship, in order to make a successful party leader Hut he Is the best they have. There is not another man in the party who is as acceptable to ail factions and less objectionable lo auy. Whitney or .McBride would be less acceptable. Foster and Rohlin are impossibilities, ("'liffofd Sifton is mentioned, but it will take time to make a party accept as a leader one who has for half a life time been a bitter opponent. The party surveys the 'whole field and then returns to Borden with humble prayers and petitions that he will still lead the party, wheth-e�- it be fo victory or defeat. In the meantime the Liberal parly is very well satisfied with Mr. Borden as leader of the Cnnser\ atlves. From a party standpoint, he Is a fair fighter, bit ha.s proved a leader whom it is easy to defeat. He is strong enough to keep up a lively Opposition, but not strong enou.^h to he dangerous in an attack with a view to overthrowing the .so\ernment. The Liberals are .�satisfied with Rorden and the Conservatives have to be. as a trusted representative of his pen-pie, compel ihem lo do by pro.vy what he would not do himself.

The theory under our system of responsible government undoubtedly is that a man is sent to Parliament to represent the people who elect him lo that position, and not to represent himself and his own views. He is elected to support policies in Ihe interests of his conatltuenis as a whole. True, he has likewise to pass judgment on questionB from the standpoint of the interests of the whole country, but the only way to arrive' at what thei people of the Dominion as a whole desire iind regard as right and proper for the country la to take the aggregate opinion of the Members voicing the opinions of their constituents.
