He tines the railway's publicity work, which means ho is employed to keep information out of the paper when there is a -wreck or a strike, to get it into the paper when there is a dividend declared. "Cy" has for years heen writing poems, stories, unit-las, mostly on railroad themes. He is in the capital just now attending the convention of passenger agents. Here are a few of Mr. Wai-man's inimitable stories. Like the queen who saved her lite in the "Arabian Nights" by her story telling. "Cy' has a thousand and one ot them and all good.

Lemieux an Loyalty (Toronto Globe) In the general election of a year ago the Liberal party lost, heavily in Northern Ontario and Quebec he- cause of the incendiary appeals of Nationalist orators against the Lib- eral naval policy. The Nationalists denounced Sir Wilfrid Laurier on every platform as a traitor. He had "sold them out" lo the English, who would put ihem on hoard Laurler's ships of war and send them abroad to he disembowelled in fighting Brit- ain's battles. The keynote of the scrouudelly campaign was struck bj Mr. nmirassa himself in Le Devoir on July 13, 1511. when he said: "The Nestor of the Imperial Con forence, the Canadian found it right and good that 50.0001 men should be massacred, thousands of farms burnt and ravaged, peaceful homes pillaged, women outraged, and little children shut up in pestilential camps where, they died like flies.

That was the Tory conception of loyalty in opposition. The Hon. Frank Cochrane brought in as his ally a man who had poured out all the venomous invectives at his com- mand in an effort to besmirch not only the honor of Laurier. -out the honor of Britain. A year passes and another French-Canadian orator goes inio the north. He, too. is in oppo- sition. What does Tiodolphe Lemieux say of Britain? What of the duty of the French-Canadians? After sketch ing the conditions ot political and religious freedom in Canada he said: "Now that you know under whal benign rule we French-Canadian; have lived and prospered, would yoi still object to doing your good share, yes, an enthusiastic only in the defence o Canada, but in the de-fence of Brttaii .vhenever and wherever there is ai hour of There was a remarkable demonstra lion, the reporter says.
