"'Bayne, "the Yankeo mining man" who sews to have been the chief operator in the "purity" elec- tions of John Stansfield, M. P., for Colchester, yesterday continued to furnish startling revelations of cor. ruption practised on behalf of the Opposition candidate in the famous bye-election last November. Witnesi after witness testified to the distri- bution with a lavish hand of rum and money by Bayne. The sensa- tion of the case is that all the wit- nesses for the prosecution assembled, and the distribution of liquor and money took place there. They were treated to drinks, and in some cases with turmoil Uct years of their lives. John Hacdonald died in harness at a ftdyanced age. "Sir Charles Tapper in the eighties views tho battle like a, warhorse, though not an. active par Sir lUchard Cartwright, with a record -going back to the days prior to confederation, is still in hur- Argumect does not need to -be called-into service to prove that and public life hold the in-; terest of the older as well as the 'younger generation. i thought is inspired by the re- ceut renobainalion of Adlai E. Stev- enson, once vice president of tho '.United States, as Democratic candi- date for Governor of Illinois. One would have thought the high position at Washington would havo satisfied Adlai, .but not at all. Now in his later seventies, he is entering the po- litical field to buttle for 'the gover- norship of his adopted Adlai's views do not seem to bo strongly centred. Be seems to flow with the tide, and endeavors to reach power and position on any wave that passes his way! He was a partner with the conservative Cleveland at Washington and eight years later up with the radical Bryan Of him the New York Sun says: "Mr. Stevenson has been on all sides of all -questions and taken sides with -no one'against anybody. He equally esteemed by Mr. Murphy, o -Tammany Hall, Mr. Hearst of the In dependence League, under whose aus pices he has spoken pieces; Mr. Tag gart Gi French. lick- Springs, th Sage of Lincoln and Judgo George Gray.

In Mr. Stevenson's case the primary system proves that no original character and bounding op- timist like Jim" Ham Lewis can hope- to alienate the affections of an easy- going people from a genial landmark, however movable he may be." Stevenson's adherence to politics at his age is a parallel with in other lands, but his flexibility prevents the comparison be ing continu wood be there to hoald my cote and j asked to "forget some things." see that nobuddy interfrars in it. i Mr can lick him sure, i wood be glad- _ _, W.

Jamieson, mail driver at Upper Economy at the time of the election, said Bayne had given him five dollars, a day or two before the election in the village. He asked him to have a drink and gave him a drink and five dollars. They had no talk about election. Bayne took the money from a roll. The witness un.' derstood from Bay ne'e talk that he was working for Stansfield. "At- the last election I got from Mr. said Jamieson. "I got not more than one flask. I got money at the Corbett House shortly before the election. He had a fair-sized amount with him. I gave a. package to my brother shortly before the election to ough-going Independent weekly, in a confidential and friendly way to Sir James Pliny Whitney that it would be well for him not to build hopes on Sir Wilfrid Laurier being defeated in the coming election. A due consideration of the facts and circumstances of the situation leads it to emphatically say: "We have no belief that any present combination of Provincial Premiers and local dis- affections will suffice to cause the de- feat of Sir Wilfrid Laurier." a littul but ware luv is wott is pidgentode.
