A nineteenth century Prime
Minister, faced with the pro-
blem of appointing bishops,
was heard to declare: "I
believe they die to spite me."
Conservative party loyalists
now must think that at least
one leading figure in the party
has deliberately committed
suicide on his political future,
in order to spite the party,
and weaken its chances of
success at the polls. For Mr.
Iain Macleod, newly ap/
pointed editor of the respected
weekly the "Spectator'! and
ex/minister in Mr. Macrrnil-
lan's late government, has
told the story of the battle of
the tory succession as he saw
it. As a result he is being
accused of disloyalty, the most
dreadful of crimes for a Con,
servative. .
What has Mr. MacLeod
said? In w h a t.M r. Ran,
dolph Churchill has called a
"massive review" of the
latter's "The Fight ,For The
-Tory.Leadership", Mr. Mac,
ILeod takes Mr. Churchill's
version, dissects it, and refutes
much. Mr. Churchil 1's
-tooi- is iasgcir-y ased--oe -
cuttings from the newspapers.
But it has running'through it
a thread of inside information.
It is no secret that this was
provided, by Mr. Macmillan.
So the book is in fact the late
Premier's authorisedd vtr,
sion"of what took place.
It gives one side only. As
Mr. MacLeod says, it" can,
not be allowed to stand as
For the argument of the
book is that Mr. Macmillan
"performed a signal service to
the tory party", in effectually
choosing Lord Home to
succeed him. Both Mac,
Leod and Churchill assume
that Mr. Macmillan acted as
kingmaker. But one ap,
proves and the other, the one,
time minister, emphatically
The case of those who
won is that the process of
consultation by which the
party picks its leader worked
fairly and impartially. Mr.
Redmayne, Conse r v a t i v e
Chief Whip and the man
responsible for the political
health of the Parliamentary
"ty, has, on the radio,
Sus that there was,
-ir ranks, a majority
--ncW fF- + .

on the method by which Mr.
Redmayne collected opinions
and on ,he way in which he
put his questions. To put it
shortly, the Chief Whip was
an enthusiastic supporter of
Lord Home, and believed
him most fit for the leadership.
What Mr. MacLeod thtre,
fore holds, giving as evidence
what he considers to Le the
false evaluation of Cabinet
,opinion, is that "expressions
of genuine regard" for Lord
Home "somehow became
translated into second or even
first preferences". In other
words, though he might not
have been conscious of it,
Mr. Redmayne was not a
completely. honest broker.
And when one realises that
all the votes in this election
were not equal, the Chief
Whip "weighing" votes
according to the regard in
which the voter was
"generally" held in the party,
then one can appreciate the
point of Mr. Maclod's criti-
cism .
But if not Lord Home,
who : Macleod says: But/

exhausting round of consult/
tion, were agreed on him.
But, according to the critic,
they were not .consulted: "it
was an essential part of the
desi g n .that the Cabinet
should have no such oppor,
urinity". What explanation
are we therefore offered : It
is in its open simplicity quite
sensational. M r. Macleod
has openly accused Mr. Mac,
millan of manoeuvreing so
that "Butler, although income,
parably the best qualified of
the contenders, should not
succeed him."
No reason is given for the
late Premier's dislike of his
Deputy Prime Minister
though an informed guess is
possible. Mr. Butler is a
brilliant compromiser and
there are times when a Pre-
mier must stand out alone.
Butler in the role of de
G a ulle is unimaginable.
However that might be, Mr.
Macleod says that the deci,.
sion was made, and Mr.
Macmillan hoped that some
minister would emerge who
would establish himself as
the clear leader of the field.
But this was not to be. Mr.
Heath's Common Marker

"Now We Know"

prove a dynamic Chancellor.
Then Lord Hailsham was
built up for the succession by
being sent to Moscow to sign
the Test Ban treaty. Un,
fortunately, he was found to
have insufficient support, and
Mr. Macmillan then turned
to Lord Home. He was the
last card. Mr. Macleod im-
plies, and as such had to be
played. Indeed, when the
news leaked out that Lord
Home was to be asked to
form an administration, there
was a lasc minute revolt
amongst the Cabinet. But,
Mr. Churchill reports, Mac,
millan rallied his candidate,
saying: "Look, v;e can't
chan e our view now. All
the troops are on the starting
line . . And v.sh thi.
curiously dated First World
War observation, Macmillan
sent his resignation to the
Palace, together with his ad-
vice that tne party's choice of
a successor was Home.
This is history, though un,
doubtedly much remains t
be said. The more discreet
will add their tale at a decent
interval, But what conclu-
sions.can we draw from this i
Firstly, the wounds suffer,
edin the struggle have noi
healed over. Secondly, iL is
-rbsm hJ 10 ',A- ^ kid-
for "spilling the be .ns Mt.
Chuxchill, wi.h the aid 'of
Mr. Macmiilan did chi s,
selective.y. And, most im-
portant of all, there are the
future implications.
The dissention in the
Conservative ranks will be
made much of by the Labour
party. But this will be only
incidental to the chances of
the Government at the polls.
What is far more important
is why Mr. Macleod really
resigned. He has said that
it was because Lord Home
is a man of the Right-wing
of the party. This is so. It
can be argued that this is a
political attitude unsuited to
Britain today. But even
more relevant just now is; do
the electors think so ? And
does Sir Alec Douglas-Home
give the impression of being
indelibly stamped with the
ideas of. the past Mr,
Macleod obviously thought
so. And he was joint
Chairman of the Conserva,
tive Party Organisation.
With him resigned Lord
Aldington, his special assist,
ant. They were the people
responsible for seeing that

T1.e Portsmouth Government
By N. E. B. WATTY, J.P.
PORT SMOUTH can boast of one of the mast beautiful
Buildings for elementary education in the Colony.
Built on a hill overlooking the town, it presents a lovely
view. This school was built in the year 1954 and opened

on the 18th January 1955.
Sal to say when the school
was being built a mischief,
ous propaganda was let loose
that the school was built to
close the St. John's School
that was doing so muchn
good in the town and dis,
trict. Hence at the opening,
instead of the rejoicing and
ceremony that we so often
hear when present-day schools
are opened, there was much
sullenness and dissatisfaction,
and the masses were lost for
name, to call the school.
Some named it the Zicack
school, some the Methodist
school, and some Mr. Watty's
If from that part of the
town where it is situated we
accept the name "Zicack",
and if to distinguish it from
the St. John's R. C. school,
we m.y accept, "Methodist",
why name it Mr. Watty's
-Mr. ir edheacT (who was
the District Officer at the
time) knew why; and that
was why he told Adminis,
tractor Lindo that I should
be on the platform with
them and the Acting Educda
tion Officer, the Inspector of
Schools and the gentleman
who was to be the Head,
master of the school.
Mr. Redhead was present
when Sir Arthur Grimble,
Governor of the Windward
Islands at the time (11 years
previously) visited the Ports,
mouth Town Board with
Administrator Neill and Mr.
Wiseman, Education Officer,
when I had .called His Ex/
cellency's attention to the old
dilapidated building that
went by the name of Ports-
mouth Govt. School, and he
had heard the Governor say
"Development and Welfare
Programme for Education at
Portsmouth needs a new
school and I propose putting
a radio and a library there,
that it may be a community
centre where the citizens can
go, read, listen to the news,
and discuss current events.'
Mr. Redhead knew that
Mr. Neill and Mr. Wiseman
went away and nothing by
way of building the school
was done; that when Mr.
Nedd the Administrator
came .to Portsmouth tw o

other Board members and I
called upon Mr. Nedd in his
office at the sub-treasury
about the school, anA His
Honour told us, he saw
nothing to that effect in his
office and therefore could do
nothing. When Mr. Lindo
was Administrator, he visited
the Board of ten: Mr. Red,
head as Chairman knew thar
at each visit the Board (led
by me), kept worrying him
about the school and that or
one occasion he, with one of
the members, went to see the
school. He returned to the
Board convinced, and
promised to see to building
a new school. But when we
expel t d the fulfilment of his
promise, we were nade to
understand t h at Mr. J..
Hamilton Maurice the then
Educ-tion Officer had said
that there was no need for
two schools- -a-Perasmfetk -
But when, as if to prove his
superior wisdom in the mat,
ter, he transferred a Method,
ist assistant teacher from the
Government to the St. John's
School, his superior intellect
got a rude awakening: :the
teacher could not be admit,
ted in the St. John's School.
He then understood that
the plan for the Education of
a community means Educa,
tion in which no member of
the community can be
debarred no matter of what
race, creed or colour he or
she may be.
It was then that Mr.
Maurice had to come ,to
Portsmouth to select a site for
the new school. The site
was selected, surveyed paid
for; still no sign of building;
until Mr. (afterwards Sir)
Edward Beetham, Governor
of the Windward Islands,
came to Dominica and :paid
a visit to the Portsmouth
Town Board. In my
address, I told the Governor
it is now eleven years since a
Governor told us that Deve,
lopment and Welfare pro'
gramme for Education at
Portsmouth meant a new
school. The old school was
a disgrace to Government
then and not withstanding
continual importuning, the
Government appears power,

less to implement Develop-
mtn1 t ind Welfare recom,
mendation, and the disgrace
still stands at this interview ;
Administrator Lindo anu
two cth:r gentlemen wr:
After the meeting was ovr,
both these gentlemen came
up to me and congratulate.1
me on the address. One was
Mr. Burra, tho Forester but I
did not know who the other
was. Mr. ReI-eid told me
afterwards he was Sir Stephen
Luke -- the Comptroller of
Development and Welfare.
This was in August 1954,
with in three weeks Mr.
Adams, the foreman ot works
came down with all his men
and materials, told me he was
under orders to build and
deliver a school for education
at Portsmouth within a
space of six m months. All
this Mr. Redhead knew.
Hence he told Mr. Lindo I
should be on the platform at
the opening of the .school.
If Mr. Redhead had ex,
pected me. to speak of.the
part I had in the building of
the school, I was sorry to
disappoint him, I could not
trust myself to say anything
which might have aggravated

School, the late Mr. Francis
Simon, had asked me ini

EXACTLY TEN MONTHS before he died, on March 23,
1963 to be exact, this column began by saying:
"Dominicans can rejoice that there is them who combines that rare quality of friendliness; with
an equally sca ce talent called "hard work". The phrase
"to know him is to love him" can well be applied to this
Domrinican. Nearly everyone in Dominica has seen his
quick and ready smile, and hundreds of us get that warm
glow that comes from looking at his sincere face. You
know where you stand with this man right away because
he tells you No beating around the bush for him. No
"Er, ah, ur, um.. let me see. um, er, ah !" Hesketh
Shillingford is to the point."
And or. January 23rd, 1964, we lost our dear friend.
He literally killed himself for other people; to help others,
to carry their worries, t3 do their jobs for them. A kind

Would we not shatter it to bits, and then
Remould it closer to the heart's desire?
RITISH PARTY politics may be said
to have descended from simple fac,
tions through the Whigs and Tories. In
fact the present-day upholders of tradition
are still known as Conservatives (conserva-
tors), reminding us of the old woman who
said to your Editor in London during
World War II: "I'm against insanitary
bombs and I'm against dratted Conserva-
tories." Barbados is the only Wes; Indian
island where people in politics dare to
proclaim themselves Conservatives with a
certain pride, though none of the territories
are above suing for Tory aid.
Everywhere else in these islands the
popular banher is "Labour"; next in
appeal is the word 'National" (PNP
Jamaica, PNM Trinidad, GNP Grenada).
Does that mean there are no Tories in
these islands? Far from it: it simply
means that for protective reasons th-ey
not call themselves such, or may even be
unaware that they really are, or may realise
that tradition hereabouts is yet in the mak,
When a Labour man or "radical'
becomes an office holder and an increased
property-owner, how long does it take
him to become a dratted Conservatory
who implies "what I have I hold and
little must be changed?" The period
varies according to temperament, and there
are few sturdy souls who are immune to
such defection.
This week a remark was made on a
new political platform about party politics
in Dominica. Will the emergence of a
"third Party" damage the fragile structure
of party politics in this island? Are the So-
cialists of yesteryear already becoming the
Conservatives of tomorrow, with increased
property holdings due to Ministerial
savings and other circumstances? Does
that not bring the two supposedly warring
local parties, one of which has "appro-
priated" socialist aims and objects, and
the other no fixed aims, closer together?
If the established Dominica parties are
(as some onlookers declare, noting the
feebleness of Opposition sparring and the
similarity of racist antagonism expressed
by certain members of both camp s)
coalescing subconsciously, is not Domini-

in the Soviet Union and even Ghana --

but definitely antipathetic to the varied
independent characters of our mixed West
Indian community, to which we hope to
attract investors and visitors ?
Let us glance at this partypolitics issue
globally. While we consider that it
would be dangerous to have a single/party
system in these islands, where already
healthy opposition and criticism are
frowned upon by persons in power, the
Ecumenical movement which has brought
light and comfort into the tight caves of
Christ:an secretarianism has its secular
counterpart in the world of politics.
Although they are unlikely to make the
bold move of "crossing the floor", there
are members of every party in the Western
world who share certain attitudes on the
major issues of our time: malnutrition,
nuclearwarfare, racial strife, individual
liberty, the adventure of outer space ..
we-cannot name them all. We venture
party affiliations, "iconoclastic" men like
Rab Butler and Iain Macleod are 'closer
in their thinking to men like Lord Attlee
and the late Hugh Gaitskell than they are
to Mr. Macmillan or even Sir Winston
Churchill; and in this very issue we
publish an article by a young Conserva/
tive who, we hope, will visit Domini-
ca soon which shows what freedom of
expression the new Yourg Tories known
as the Bow Group have, even in the con-
fines of an old traditional party. Conm,
pare this with the attitude of some preju/
diced trade unionists in Britain towards
coloured Labour, and of some politicians
in the W. I. towards their opponents !
So, then . . a party system by all
means: it is the great game in which there
cannot be a draw somebody has got to
win; if certain players, prematurely jaded
or run out, leave the field, others with
stamina and courage will take their place.
Some will change teams; new talent will
come from outside. All the world's a stage
(or to West Indians, a cricket pitch) and
all the men and women merely players.
Paradoxically, while we firmly believe
in the healthful contest of Party elections,
we see clearly that politicians everywhere
will be forced by circumstances to reach
agreement on the great issues of our time,
if what is good and just in our imperfect
civilisation is to survive. We go further,
and foresee a considerable change in the
whole concept of party politics every-

Dear Editor,- Please .publish this
letter in your next issue, with thanks
in advance.

miles, A heavy bull-dozer began
the work, but was fund to be too
heavy for the soil, is very damp.
Anyway w2rk went on for a few
months ani has stopped since
around October.
Everyone knows how a bull dozed
wet soil is like in these hilly areas.
People are unable to travel through
thz muddy lakes with bananas,
although the Ministers concerned
made us believe in a short while we
would enjoy a motorable road to
Warner. The road has reached only

but,all we are made to understand
there is no money. When a child
is hungry it calls on its parents, and
a good parent has to provide some-

How long shall these: things conti-

May I suggest if the government
can't afford to complete the motor,
able road, let our track to Warner be
maintained, so that our donkeys
(2o in number) can travel as usual.

The Midnight Flames
Ey L. A. Riviere
"Bengu!" exclaimed his friend, Bamboro, "I've good
news for you!" "The sportscar, the six/storey mansion, the
world's fastest yacht and other luxuries I dream about after
a full supper of pain negre and cooculer * are now within
my grasp!"
Bamboro continued: "Zodillia no more will wake
me up at dawn of day to work on Mas' Andre's estate.
Calibou, the overseer with the crocodile and booboo
moustache marks me as his target for obuse for leaning on
th- hoc smoking tabac Zombie for just a minute! Estate
work fbr Bam is over!"
"You grin, Bengu." "tis true I've already drunk my
quart of satan's taffia (rum), but nonetheless, Ben, I'm as
sober as Babarin (a notorious drunkard) and normal as the
chap in the bible with the seven devils."
"I'm sorry," replied Bengu, "but you have me too
long in suspense waiting for the glad tidings."
"Ben you're like the rest of the Toucarie lads; they
just can't wait! But 'all things come to them that wait!'
I've been waiting long, and soon the biggest treasure is
Bamboro continued his wild ejaculaions: "No more
'taffia' and 'tabac zombie' for me!' The Toucarie belles
shall envy my wife Zcdillia, ii her silk and satin can-cans!
Caman the obeah king will say: Bamboso, the lougarou,
gets money from the devil!"
"Now, hear the news: It begins with myself and
ends in a dream," said Bamboro.
The story as related by Bamboro was like this: he had
laboured all day in the hot sun on Mas' Andrt's plantation
and came home tired as a jade. Zodillia gave him the
usual big pot cf delicious 'dashout' and stewed shark in
Mr. Bellot's hot pepper sauce. The chow was enough to
satisfy the appetite of'a starving elephant. Nevertheless,
being so hungry and the shark never so nice (Zodillia was
-aclasR- one-e k),-helieke- dryarnthed rcired ro- bed
on a well stocked stomach.
As he.slept, he had a dream: a prodigious giant of a
man in tight riding breeches and ankles and wrists in heavy
iron chains fastened to an enormous bois diable tree, near
an old French cannon at the Cabrits stood over him. The
giant's visage was melancholy; his voice, shrill and tremu,
He introduced himself as Monsieur Pedespoir (Mr.
Lost Hope) and said Cuzuyu my greatgrandfather, was
his slave. With the master's cato-ninetails, he had corn,
pelled Cucuyu to convey considerable treasure to the spot
where he was then chained, and commanded him (Cucuyu)
to dig a pit twelve feet deep to bury the gold in. The job
was done at the dead of night.
Pedespoir must have seen Bomboro's trembling lips
and ghastly countenance, for anon, to appease his fear, he
exclaimed: "henceforth, the treasure is yours!".
Blood returned to Bam's pale face. His lips settled
down in peace once more and the ghost resumed his narra,
tive, saying that Cucuyu was so 'vorn out by the arduous
task that he fell unconscious in the pit. He finished him
off with a bullet to the head and buried him in his own-made grave.
I he master's gold was safe when the pit-digger was dead.
Bamboro paused and said: "Bengu, your chum's head became a
whirlpool. Grandpa's murderer so upset that my stomach belched out
shark and dashout in disgust! Pedespoir told me there was no rest in
heaven or earth for him. He was for a hundred years chained to the bois
diable tree in reparation for the murder of Cucuyu. Monsieur them re-
peated that the treasure was mine because I was grandpa's nearest of him.
He was promised everlasting peace and freedom, said he, if he gave it to
"But, Ben," Bamboro continued, 'Monsieur's condition terrified me.
It was this in Monsieur's exact words: "Fail not to reach the spot at mid,
night precisely tomorrow night, Be there alone and tell the secret to
none, lest thou labourest in vain: Midnight flames shall consume the
treasure just when it's in thy grasp, and Pedespoir shall remain chained
to this bois diable bough for yet another hundred years, if this secret thou
revealest to anyone."
"The treasure is already in flames" interrupted B.ngu, "Why have
you told me that secrete"
"Tut' tut," replied Bamboro. "Dead man can't strike. Pedes-
moir will do nothing to jeopardise his only chance of escape. Can I keep
,you in ignorance when I need your help and courage this night? Man,
*Breadfruit **River fib

half of the gold is yours whether Pedespoir likes it or not. Come with
your pal to dig tonight!"
"Yes, yes, Bam," said Bengu. "I fire brimstone and nuclear
bomnbs, I am your man tonight! Good afternoon, pal. You'll see me
Bengu came back to Pedespoir's ajoupa that night equipped with
pick-axe, shovel and ladder. Zodillia, with a bundle of tabacjumbie;
a tobacco to frighten ghosts, joined the party, despite her husband's
solemn protestations. The three left Toricaiie behind and wended their
wa" to the Cabrits Bamboro carried crowbar and machete to bring
Pedespoir to his senses if he tried anm: breach of promise.
The treasure seekers were under the bois diabie tree at the stroke of
twelve. They crossed themselves with tabac jumble. mitrred some
weird incantations and began to dig, Bamboro thought he heard the
clang of chains, raised the fambeau and looked up, but saw no one.
But a second later, the treasure was slowly rising to the top. There was
no time enough to collect it, for almost immediately the treasure was slow,
ly sinking back and huge fl mes enveloped it!
Pedespoir in vain tried to snip his chiins., Bamborn, Zodillia
and Bengu were on the run for dear lif:! Pedespoir's shrill and sonorous
voice echoed and re-echoed in the still morning air: 'Beware of the mid-
night flames, ye glitonous son of vanity! !'

As Carnival 1964 draws near, wt are reminded of the tragic events of last
Carnival and their inconclusive consequences:-


We can't forget the Fire Tragedy,
On Carnival Monday nineteensixty-ihree,
The three boys went to enjoy themselves,
in rope costumes they were really dressed.
So maliciously, wilfully, come this Fire Tragedy,
Carnival-Monday ninete.n-sixty-three.
An eye-witness he spoke the truth,
He saw the Mexicanband in a crew,
On the other side he went for a better view,
Getting suspicious that they will try a s-screw.
It looks so funny to understand,
Why the Mexicanbandsmen ran,
In such a terrible confusion,
Not' one to help the situation.

Friends, relatives, and our Government,
Three boys were in their merriment,
It is a very sad thing to say,
They were set on fire that very day.

Dear Madam,
Hearty Congratulations
ta you all, for producing such an

comFlimenced and greatly
congratulatedfor the iauda-

the HARSH, and terrible con-

working softlyspoken Caribs
Undoubtedly aggravated
by the fact that they have not
yet been favoured with a safe
motorable roadway to their
tough area.
It should .be wellknown
that their forefathers travelled
all the long tremendous jour-

from the S.E. Asia, along the
Northern and Southerh side
of Russia to Northern Cana,

state that throughout the years
they have most shamefully
been indifferently overlooked.
Their sufferings have occas/

On Sunday January 26

we quote from Prime Minis/
Jawaharlal Nehru's speech
delivered to the Constituent
Assembly on August 14,
"Long years ago we made
a tryst with destiny, and novr
the time comes when we
shall redeem our pledge, not
wholly or in full measure,
but very substantially.. We
have to labour and to work
hard, to give reality to our

for India, but they are also
for the world, for all the

The Star
Dear Madam,
Tuesday evening I heard W.I.B.S
(Roseau and Grenada.) claiming.
on the word of their reporters. a
'"mixed" reception of the inaugura,
tion of the STAR Movement and
this morning I saw in print a "dis.
appointing start" of the same Move,
Naive enough! but what I
should like to know is whetb:r the
reporters and announcers of W.I.B.S
would be willing to stand a test of
the definition of "mixed" in the
context in which the action was
seen and perceived by them or other-
'wise prepared to confess to aborted
sight, defective perception and
confused interpretation, As for
the "Chronicle" the absence of
trumpets and anthems at a birth
may well be disappointing to him.
There is, no douL hjowver that
the statement in all three cases and
its origin testify to woeful degrees of
deficiencies of understanding of
human behaviour, motivation and
compulsion in them. But I'm no
teacner or instructor of physics and
metaphysics to reporters and writers.
No Gentlemen, the external
exhibitions -you saw at the Market
place were merely the evidence of
the ebulition beneath rising to the
top '- the stirring. of the soul
within like when the Spirit t the
Revivalist meeting brings convic-
tion to the sinful soul. Wait and
see. .
Yours sincerely

Carib speakers who followed
(Messrs. Jerome Octave, Noel
Francis and Decius Benjamin) were
warmly received, especially Mr.
Octave, wbo roused tremendous
applause when he said, "this was
our land first. everyone else came
from outside . In Roseau we
Caribs have no place to lay out
heads." Certain mysterious referen-
ces to Queen Charlotte of England
(wh-, the Caribs firmly believe
made a treaty in their favour during
her regercy in 1788) caused specu,
lation in Roseau next day, rumour,
mongers suggesting that "Ma Allfrey
would ask the Queen to send a
warship to give back Dominica to
the Caribs!" We are able to assure
readers that there is no substance in
this gossip.
After the meeting all the Caribs
reFa:red to the HERALD' office, where
