Rubey

Minister of Home Affairs Leonidas Rubey.

Leonidas Rubey was Minister for Home Affairs in the Cabinet of Governor-General Ezra Gallivan when Gallivan resigned on July 24, 1901. Rubey was considered a possible successor to Gallivan; he was a moderate who had remained in the background during the Starkist terror, and was considered a unity candidate. However, Sobel suggests that he was passed over for not being "the stuff chief executives are made of." Rubey himself suggested Councilman Harry Burroughs of Manitoba, but the People's Coalition caucus eventually chose Councilman Clifton Burgen of Northern Vandalia to succeed Gallivan.
