T. 0. CURRIE DEAD T. 0. Currie is dead. To those who the Patron movement in On- tario, the name of Currie will recall a picturesque figure on the stump in those days. Currie was a wonder. ''He had .a tongue that turned out words that could bite and cut, and many a politician winced when he 'was talking. He had a homely way of presenting an argument and if ever 'a man could paint a black picture of "a government it was Currie. In or- ganizing the Patrons. Currie used to 'travel up and down the side lines and meetings in school houses and township halls. He drove a team and -democrat and accompanying him was an organ and a lady to play it. At 'these meetings Currie would take up many subjects then in the public mind and between the discussion of each there would be a musical selection; usually a hymn, that everybody knew. -Carrie delighted in picturing the extravagance at Government Hous? in Toronto. He would take up the public accounts and read: "Chief gardner, so much a year." "What does he do in the asked Currie. "Assistant gardener, so much a year." "What does he do in the and so on down the page. Then he wouldl turn .over a few sheets and road: "Pat So and sidewalks, .so much a year." "What does h> do in would Currie ask. The pointed questions were ef- Hctive and succeeded in cutting down expenses at government house. In later years Currie had "acted as Canadian immigration agent at Mil- waukee. traveller, gives government ownership of railways a very poor recommenda- tion. He says: "M saw the folly of such a he people in changing the system! ered that Lord Rosebery was not the rom public to private ownership.
