Correspondent
ChurchillWinston Leonard SpencerHe was born November 3O, 1874, and is the son of Lord Randolph Churchill, and of the clever American lady who is now Mrs George Cornwallis West. He was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst, whence he passed into a Hussar Regiment in 1895 He took part in Cuba with the Spanish forces; served with the Malakand Field Force; was in the Tirah Expedition, and in the Nile Expedition he was present at the battle and occupation of Khartoum, being attached to the 21st Lancers. In the Boer War Mr Churchill acted as correspondent of the Morning Post, and as such witnessed some of the most thrilling incidents, and was himself taken prisoner to Pretoria, from where he made a sensational escape over the Portuguese frontier. But these adventures were merely the hurried prelude to the more serious affairs of life. In 1900 he contested Oldham as a Conservative, and won the seat. Since then, however, his political views underwent a radical change. Crossing over to the Opposition, he was repudiated by the Oldham Conservative Association, and at the General Election in 1906 he found a scat at N-W Manchester, for which he was returned by a large majority as a Liberal and a Free-Trader, having just previously joined Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman's Ministry as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonics. It will be recalled that Mr Wanklyn, when MP for Bradford, told his constituents of an alleged plot by which Mr Winston Churchill sought in 1902 to overthrow the Conservative Govt, in order to let in a weak Radical Ministry, which in turn was to be overthrown by Mr Churchill and his political allies, who were then to lead back to power a rejuvenated Conservative Unionist party. The story, however, was as resolutely denied by Mr Churchill as it was stoutly maintained by Mr Wanklyn. Mr Churchill's entry into office was marked by his relentless attacks upon Mr Chamberlain, a partial withdrawal from the Chinese 'slavery' charges, and a general eagerness to support, if not lead, his chief, Lord Elgin, in the disturbing South African policy pursued by the new Liberal Government-a policy of interference which, amongst other things, led to the resignation of the whole of the Natal Cabinet as a protest against the interference of the home Govt, in matters of colonial domestic affairs. Mr Churchill has written a considerable number of books, mainly as a result of his observations on active service. He lately produced a life of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, and those who have not had a surfeit of his views on the fiscal question may read his speeches For Free Trade, published in 1906.
