An 1 nit 1 mate frlond of King George, Lord Hyde, tho future Karl of Clarendon, intends to add i.o his interest In Canada and although a high position of State has been offered to him he will probably eHtahiish a Canadian i float and live for tlie majority of the year at least in lirltisli (Columbia.

Ho Is descendant of the de Vernon who came to England and the name he bears has alway.s been famous In Eng. ll'jh history. Sir Henry Vernon was Lord ot lladdon l-lall which was afterwards tho home of Dorntliy Vernon whose love affair and elopment with Sir .lohn .Manners furnishes so charm ing a romance. At lladdon Hall too, Prince Artliur, the brother of Henry Vlf, spent much of his time with Sir Henry Vernon who was appointed Govtrimr and Treasurer to tho Prince Sir rticliard Vernon is another member of tho family who finds a place in history. Hi' was Speaker of tho Lel-cciter Parliament in I42ri.

In constitutional questions the name of Coke is one to conjure with. .iuolher of tho bouse of beioester is the Hon. Henry Coko son of the lirit Earl. Beforo the days of rallw.iy expansion in Western Canada he travelled in the saddle over the Rockies and his volume written on this experience is one of the few records we have dealing with perhaps the most pictur-osqijo period in tho history of Western Canada. He s'lll retains an intercut n tiie devolopment to tho Do-mlnlcm. Lord Clanwllliam is a cousin of tile Hon.

Sir Thomas T^lplon is another man of title whoso keen business acumen has dictated investment in Manitoba, while the Hon. A. ,1. Rnifour, the former leader of tlie Unionist party, many years ago had the prescience to recognise that there would bo rapid ap-proclallon iu land values, and acted acqordingly.
