T. Chase Casgrain and Hon. P. E. Blondin, member for Champlaln county, and up to the present time deputy-Speaksr of the House of Commons, were sworn in as' mem- bers of the Borden government. Mr. Casgrain was sworn in as postmaster general to succeed Hon. L. P. Pelletier. and Mr. Blondin as minister of Inland Revenue. He the place of Hon. W. B. Nantel, who goes to the Railway Board as successor to Hon. H. P. Bernfer, a former Minister of inland Revenue under Sir Wilfrid Laurler, Mr. Ber- nisr-'s term of office on the Rail- way Board has expired. The inclusion of Mr. Blondin in the Cabinet came as a complete surprise, as E. L. Patenaude, M, L.A., Montreal, was expected to succeed Mr. Nantel. It is ex- plained, however, that Mr. Blon- dln's appointment is due to geb. graphical conditions, it being im- possible to appoint Patenaude as there are too many ministers from Montreal district. It is expected that Mr, Casgrain will contest Quebec county, the held by Mr. Pelletier. while Mr. Blondin will seek re-election in Cham- plain county.
