I 'i he cases, however, are not identical. I j A. McLean was elected as an inde- ;pendent Liberal, and was independent] i enough to vote against the A. transaction. Then he was taken I into the Sifton government, and .went i back to his constituency for re-elec- tion.

Bennett ridiculed the claim that Sifton had iiet't the bench inspired by a sense of public duty, but one thing is tfiat Bennett was not patriotic enough to stay with the leadership of the Con- servative party. Its chances of early victory did not warrant the sacrifice. Both Charles Stewart, the fanner M. P. P. for Sedgewick, and A.

Me- I Arthur, who never made a speech j prior to the election, was a surprise. He spoke well and had good material m his speech. He promises to be a usei'ul member.
