Herald's readers, I publish the report as befow: ' , The reception tendered last evening by the ^emliers of the Referni Club to Mr. J. IlamsaS- Macdonald. M.F., the leader of the Independcnit fjabor I'arty In the United King dom, will iimk with the must mem-arable gatherings of that historic or-nizntion. The I.Abor leader, Mr. Macdpnald, is a most remarkable ty|ie of inan, bf striking personality, of refined and scholnrly appearance, of speech, accent, and movement indicating the mun of culture. A heavy, silky black moustache gives the Imiiression oi resolution and iirmncss to a face of which the exceptional clearness of the' complexion wouM otherwise prob ably he the most notable feature. A pair of deep, clear and thoughtful eyes rest. under on expansive forehead, over which wavy masses oi stpel-gray hair seem to,spread. To raeot Mr. Macdonald in the drawing room without kiiowing the man o' his cause, wo would say "here itt the finished product of the university and the Hbrary." Vet this very remarkable man will tell you that he owes allegiance to no university or academy, while the self-education as it is ^opularl>; understood, he holds in scorii. Then where did you get that marvellous culture'? one iavoUntarily asks, and the answer came promptly enough, "just gathered it through n!fi." A little viosor examination of the Aneljl'-ehiu^lled, fei||urcH and of the. linos of character drawn there, toll of resistance overcome, ot conflicts that haVe bean fought and victories won. Mr. Macdonald was accompanied to the Club' by Mrs. Macdonald, a lady who soniebttt astonished some of our Prenvh-Canadia'n fellow citixens intho early part of the day by her fluent itomrmand of the I'rench language. .\fter the nienihers of the Club had Ijeen presented to Mr. Macdonald, President Oeoifrionj in a lew lellcit -ous words gave him hearty,welcome. Were I Mayor of Montreal,'' ' saii lie, "I would oHer you the keys of the city, but as I am bift Fresideiit. of the Ileform Club I can only tell .vou how glad ve are to greet Tou here.' s, Mr, Macdonald responaeil � In a graceful speech in whicli he renwrlr-. od that he had been iaducfld to come to llH! �;iub through the baU held out that, he was not lt Tcnn os.sur�) you that we don't on the other side. .Still it is perfectly easy for lui' to tell you how much my wiio nnil iiiysi� in inviting us here to meet you." Mr. Macdonald went on to remark that while they did not expect tote honored by mu-h *a club rs litis wh�i. the invitation reached them nearly, in mid-Atlantic, they felt they ooukl do nothing but accept It with the gi-oatest pleasure. While the nwniljers of the club might not lie in absolute agiwment on all points with the party to which he hud the honor to belong in the'British House of Com-mon-s.-still it was evident that iheiv was one Uriiish inheritaiiw that they had got from all Liberal luutics ami that was the desire to hoar all sides. If there was one tliin^r that char tu-terized Lil.ierali.sm and distinguished I from other isms in politics, it was broad-minded, intellecluai tolerance-- not only tolerance of opinions, but the willingness to al -low a man with whom they uifl not absolutely fn-o to give expix>s.s-ion to his own ideits: "Liberalisui Was nothing \ unless it was o|H'n-minded.
