Evening Citi- ;zcn says: "The committee superintending the reconstruction of the parliament build- ing is to .assemble again nest week, when there will be detailed reports tlie done so far, and explanations of the plans adopted. "The main point at issue relates to the complete removal of the wails. When members of the committee met here in June, a large part of the walls was standing and it was pretty gener- ally understood that this was to be I utilized. Last week when they came there was nothing but the skyline. "Tbe explanation of Architect Pear- son is that his plans, which were ten- tatively approved by the committee, provided for an extra story and the location of the chambers outside wing. These together with the al- leged defects in the old walls necessi- tated the pulling down of the whole structure. "Outside contractors are still de- manding for competitive contracts in- stead of Lyall Co. doing the work on.a percentage basis." i MARKHAM, M. P., VERY ACTIVE GOVERNMENT CRITIC, IS DEAD.

Among those whom he criticiz- ed ttere Premier Asquith arid the late Field Marshall Earl Kitchener. In Jisrci: of this year considerable re- sentment arose in the bouse of com- mons as the result of an attack on Premier Asquith by Sir Arthur.

The worst electric -of the season visited the district on'Tuesday evening, lasting for over five-hours. The rain, which was very heavy, continued through the night. The wheat does not. seem'to have-suffer- ed greatly but oats have beer, badly damaged. Some' fields have been beaten down and twisted so badly that it is questionable whether they will be worth anything. The storm came just at the worst time and it will be difficult to cut the oats which have twisted. Fortunately there was no hail and very little wind or matters might have been much worse. Corp.

My grandfather was rish and was an active member of -he revolutionary "Young Ireland" party of 1848. His membership in hat movement was maintained at great self-sacrifice. There was noth- ng pro-British in my grandfather. On; the'other hand, my maternal an- cestry was of the New England Yan- kee stock. My mother's forbears were evolutionists against King George III ind British misrule. There was nothing tro-British about my maternal ances- ora. I myself think the blackest page in England's history IB that which re- ords her treatment of Ireland. There 3 every-reason why I should not be .ro-Brltish. And yet today my heart goes out o England and the thousands of Irish- aen who are fighting under her stan- !ard in the trenches. For she and hey are fighting the battle of freedom nd civilization against Prussian friglitf illness."

The bad storm somewhat affected the plans made for last night and another visit is anticipated !n the near future. It should be explained that a guar- antee is offered to every farmer that fuil opportunity will he given to com- plete harvesting. There is therefore little excuse for still holding back.
