Aug. the Liberal standard liearer, is mem- ber-elect for Southwest Toronto in Uie legislature, and the first Liberal to represent a Toronto riding in something like 18 years. Mr. Dowart was elected by a major- ity of GOG, wiping out Ji margin of votes given to the late Hon. J. J, Foy. in the general election. "The Liberal majority did not represent a gathering in of Conservative votes as much as it reflected a general atti- tude on tbe part of the Conservatives lo stay at home.

Temperance people failed to give the government the support that was looked for. Those who did not stay at home voted for the prohibition social-demo- crat candidate, but their number was small.
