Ok, this one's really obscure but I'd wondered what "squires" meant in the song for years.
Sir Richard Anderson Squires
was born 1/18/1880 in Harbour Grace, Nfd.
He was prime minister of Newfoundland (1919-23; 1928-32) Began as Peoples Party and then gained a reputation for being opportunistic, extravagant, and corrupt but whose promotion of education and industrial development laid the foundation for the Newfoundland Liberal Party's emergence. [Eny.Brit.] No wonder "Tory" ran him down.
