LAURIER TO RETIRE Pressure to Keep Canadian Statesman in Public Life Said to Be Futile. OTTAWA. Nov. 4. The early retire ment of 8lr Wilfrid Laurler from the leadership of the liberal pirty and nub ile life Is bclnc widely predicted In the Canadian cress. Sir Wilfrid's advanced age-lie la en tering his seventy-fifth year his rerent Illness and the tronK Insistence of I.ndy I.aurlrr that her husband bo permitted to spend his remaining jenrs free from the turmvll of politics arc advanced as reasons for his decision to retire from active parliamentary leadership. It s understood that Blr Wilfrid's re tirement was the subject of h confer ence of liberal leaders In Ottawa re cently. Kx-cnhlnct ministers, colleagues of Blr Wilfrid since IMG, but who nro still active In the party, and younger workers, arc lirliiElng strong pressure to bflr upon the veteran statesman to continue at tho head of liberalism until after the next parliamentary election. They are runfldcnt that his prestige will lead the narty back to office, but those In u position to know nssert that nothing will be permitted to stand In the way of Sir Wilfrid's deslro to retire. Sir Wilfrid's Popularity. Mrr Wlltrld'a withdrawal from poli tics will remove a plcturesquo figure from Canadian public life. For nearly half a century he has been constantly before the public, and In recent years ha stood almost alone In his hold upon the Imagination of the Canadian peo ple. In 1(71 he was a member of the Que bec legislature. Threo ears later he entered federal politics, and as early aa 117 he una one of thn most Influential members of the Mackenzie cabinet. In UK he was chosen to le.id tho liberal party and nas done so unbrokenly and with brilliancy ever since. In 1H" his party camo Into power and remained In office until defeated on the Issue of reciprocity with the United States In 1911. Despite the overwhelm ing defeat sustained at the polls Blr Wilfrid retained an almost Intense pop ularity with the people. Ills retirement will leave the lleerals without a strong leader. Among Sir Wilfrid's ablest lieutenants there Is not a figure measuring up to the stand ard set by hint during the past twenty years. Will Retire To Old Home. Pome of them have marked ability. Some arc widely respected. Nearly all are politically capable None can be called a national figure. The name mostly mentioned to succeed to the party leadership l Newton Wesley Ftowell, leader of the liberal opposition In the Ontario legislature. He Is an able lawer. sincere, highly respected, but without much political experience. It Is said that Sir Wilfrid will remain at the head of the party until the be ginning of the coming parliamentary session, when an agreement will be ef fected whereby the life of the nresent parliament will be extended until after the war. lie will then give up the reins of leadership and retire to his old homo at Arthabaskatlllc, Quebec, to spend the rest of his days among his books and writing his political reminiscences.
