' LONDON, February 7
The newspapers pay personal tribute to the Rt. Hon. Munro-Ferguson as an independent politician and a strong Imperialist, and they congratulate the Commonwealth upon the suitability of the appointment.
The "Daily Graphic" says:—"lt is ; stated that the Government's land policy rendered the Rt. ; Hon. MunroFerguson's continued support of the official Liberal policy impossible, and his resignation was foreshadowed in various quarters. He was nev,er in full sympathy with the Government. But for his opposition to many provisions of the Scottish Land Bill, he would have succeeded Lord Pentland as Secretary for Scotland."
