Who is 'Mr. Sifton, who Is pursuing Sir Wilfrid Laurier up and down the country like a vengeance? Mr. Sifton JB a very rich man, who, because 'he- Ing a. member of the Laurler govern- ment, he made much money, was hounded by the Opposition till he re- signed. Whether Sir Wilfrid had any- thing to do with his resignation we j in ay not know. Mr, SIfton's alleged Without a join ed himself to his arch-enemy, Mr. Uourassa, as Jiis understudy, and his cue is to denounce all Liberals for the sins for which he himself has been de- nounced by his present chief. Then there is M.r. Willison, of the Toronto News. Mr. Willison was at one time editor of the Toronto Globe, md a great admirer of Sir Wilfrjd Laurier. He wrote a singularly eulo- gistic biography of his chief in two evil doings were the theme of Mr. I volumes. Vhat his aspirations were 'Ames' illustrated pilgrimages in which, hy- the aid of. a lantern, he set forth, iv.herever he might, way in which the splendid resources of the West .were being squandered and plundered. iJecause ;he has espoused the intereste of privilege, Mr. Sifton is now a trump card of the jwrty that formerly revil- ed him. He hunts in couples with bis former caustic critic, Mr. Foster a Very good running mate, for did not Jlr. Foster also Urn upon his chief? Who is Mr. Bourassa, who Biiya he is ta friend of Sir Wilfrid Latirler, and in the same breath accuses him of false- hood and treason and servility to im- jjeriiil Interests? Mr. Bourassa, a de- scendant of the greatest of French LI- we do not know, but not advancing fast enough, ihe entered into otiher ser- service of the Toronto meat trust and other since his change of heart he has pursued and denounced Sir Wilfrid 'relentlessly. Along'with him, queerest of-bedfellows Joseph Martin, who, heg-an as a fiery Liberal in Manitoba, having there had the honor of receiving from Sir; John Macdonald a nickname. He then I set British Columbia in a'ferment, but finding it too small for his talents, he went to England and ran ns a Liberal, and managed in parliament to hold the i world's attention .for a day or two by j attacking tho party to which he be- longed on preposterous grounds.
