ST. JUST, Luc Letelliere de, Canadian statesman, born in Rivi@e Ouelle, province of Quebec, 12 May, 1820" died there, 1 February, 1SS1. He studied law, and after practising for a time was elected to the old parliament in 1850. He was defeated at the general election of 1852, and again in 1857, but in 1860 was elected for Granville division to the legislative council, where he sat until the union in 1867. In 1863 he became minister of agriculture in the Sandfield Macdonald administration, retaining the oftice until 1864. In 1867 he was called to the senate, and in 1873, when the Liberal adnlinistration came into power, ha became minister of agriculture. Toward the close of 1874 he resigned his portfolio, and was appointed lieutenant-governor of Quebec. He soon found himself at variance with different members of the local government, especially with the premier, M. de Boucherville. The difference between them gradually became wider, and finally all the members of the administration were parties to the dispute. On 24 March, 1878, the lieutenant-governor brought, matters to a crisis by dismissing his cabinet, a proceeding that produced the most violent excitement throughout the country. The matter was at last considered in parliament, but, as the Liberals were in power, and he had only dismissed their political opponents, he escaped even censure. In 1879 the Conservatives came into powerthe dismissal case was reconsidered, and the ministry advised the dismissal of the lieutenant-governor. The governor-general, Lord Lorne, hesitated, and referred the case to the secretary for the colonies at London, who requested him to take the advice of his ministers. Consequently, 3I. de St. Just, was displaced from office.
