The premier �was in good fettle, and felt much inspired by his tour of the week through the centre and south of the province. I-Ie was specially confident as to the result in Macleod, where ho spent the last two daya, and where he-is opposed by Robt. Patterson, the . late member. As to the othar scafis'in the south, the Premier said, !'-Xher''e is not a seat that the Qon-servatives can claim as safe ; while we may say that quite five or six in the.south arc conceded to us right away." . The premier was much struclc with his reception in Lethbridge, and thinks that J. O. Jones, the Liberal-Labor candidate, has an excellent chance of redeeming the seat from the Conservative ranks. The record of the goTernment for good-le:iisla-tion and the carrying out of neadful and useful public works, the premisr thinks, has won the confidence of thte people, and as to the result there appears to he no doubt whatever. .

But the committee thought it would be better for R. B. to'stand out all alone in his glory, free, of the meretricloua aids of trombones and bae� drums.
