Hon. Dr. Pyiie, Minister of ISduoiitlon, left Toronto, Intending to remain away for five months, spending most of the lime In 'North Carolina. But white resting up at -Washing- ton, for ton days they frequented the sessions of Congress and of too Supreme Court, the Pre- mier on Dec. 12 was taken with a bad turn. Ho said, his heart "folt jumpy" and asked to be jmt to bed. ,Dr. Pyne decided that' tlioy had better retrace their fltfiDB, arid after Sir .Tames had been two days in, bed they returned to Ntfw York Ho finally recovered, after weeks of concern, as to he would live, and 'cama back to Ontario, and went through an election, cfniimigu. While he had not 'been in robust health since, his death was unexpected. Mr. Borden Grieved Ottawa, Sept. The announce- ment of the death of Sir James Whit- ney brought1 sincere expres- sions from members of the Dominion cabinet. Rt. Hon. R. L. 'Borden said; "The nows of Sir James "Whitney's death came to me as a great shock and a profound sorrow. His serious Illness was known to his Intimate friends but the latest previous news which came to usr prior to the an- nouncement of his collapse, was more hopeful and encouraging than foeea the casa for a long time. had His death leaves a great blank in the pub- lic life panada. For twenty-five .years lias been a distinguished 'figure in the political arena of Ontario and it has been my privilege during 'more than half of that time to know him as an intimate friend. It Is net necessary to dwell on his remarltablo great toady of legislation standing tu 'hit; credit on statute towta of On- tario was of Uift moet useful, pructicul and progressive- character, !HlA ministration of public bad been efficient and pure. The quali- ties which (had ma.de for his great pol- itical BUCCOBS wore sound' common souse, high courage and unswerving integrity." As a" personal friend of many years' standing, Mr. Whlto spoke feelingly of the InctU tledll- n ess of Sir James' and character. Great Leader Gone Hon, Robert Rogers eaiii: "The party haa loat a great Loader. On- tario her most trusted .son. ster- ling qualities of (honor and honesty won for him the '.highest possible place In the hearts and affections of the people of his province, who hftve BO repeatedly and signally (honored him.

He, gave Ontario govern- ment for the people, and. he 1ms loft an example of 'Honest; v hpnorabie states mans hdp that 'tvlll have an In- fluence in his native province and In ail Canada for niany years to' come.1" Enjoyed Public Confidence Hon. T. w. Crothers "Sir JamesWhitney enjoyed the confluence of all classes. .No one doubted his patriotism, Jijs capacity for large questions or Ibis' honesty of, purpose, While firm and frank for the, fight as he saw it, and against the wrong, .ho was all kiiidnosB to those coming into close contact with him. With one ac- cord Ifte people of Ontario will' say he was a wise statesman and -an hon- est man." Mr. RqweU's Tribute Toronto, N. W., Rowell, K.C., M.P.P. Opposi- tion in the Ontario legislature said 'The news of'SUc- J am.es'., AVhltney's death comes as' great shock to' the people ol the province. All' political differences are forgotten, all Rolitical controversies are silenced, in trie-pres- ence of deep and universal sorrow at his death. It is difficult, to realize that this stiuusunil per- sonality will no. longer preside over the work of the government and legis- lature. "Our provincial parliament has lost its most commanding, figure and the province one of its, most devoted public ssrvants.

"Wjithout distinction of party the of that great province to whose public service he consecrated the best years of his life, will mourn his loss. Not Ontario alone but all Canada will yield Its tribute of sorrow -and afl- miratiqn to his realizing that a -great" national figure has passed away .leaving behind him a distinguish ed- and honorable public record." A Close Friend Hon. Minister of Railways and Canals, feels the death of Premier. Whitney as a keen pep- fioual. loss. He knew the lata Pre- mier as intimately and as well per- 3iaps as any man, having been so closely, associated with him. in the government of .'Ontario.
