We regret to record the death of Lord Grey, at

the age of sixty-sir. He was a great Imperialist in the best sense of the word. As Administrator of Rhodesia from 1895 to 1897, when the Matabele rebelled and the Boers were hostile, he had a sharp experience of the difficulty of governing Dependencies. But as Governor-General of Canada for a doublet term from 1904 to 1911 he won urtmlitied success. Apart from his devotion to Imperial causes, he took lively interest in the Public-House Treat, in Agricultural Co-oper- ation, in Proportional Representation, and other important ques- tions, for he was by nature a reformer with a broad and generous mind. His kindliness made him a universal favourite.
