Everybody who was at the Central School on Wednesday now knows what it means by a Scotchman with his foot on his native heath and with his name the hardy variety of Macduff. The latest boost for the National Liberal and Conservative Party is that it has selected a Premier from the West. But the policy of that Party is hardly a Western one.

Saccessful Candidate in Fernie Represents a Minority of tlie Eiectorfr-Bfgr Vo^ .Cast (Prom Onr'Own Correspondent) PERNIE,- Dec. 2.-=-PinBl unoflftcial figures on the result In the Femle riding yestirday are as follows: Total vote cast in the riding, 1,864.

The registration In Femie was 1,211. The total vote cast was 1,100. This total will be increases' by the absent vote and indicates the largest vote in proportion to registration eyer cast in the city. The regrettable thing about the result is that a little more than one-third of the votes cast elected the member. The latest reports from the province show by Ihe UiioiBcial returos that 24 straight Liberals have been elected and to this number can be added two independent Liberals returned, both of whom in the late legislature supported the Oliver government, making a safe backing for the OH, WOMAN, WHY WONT YOU BEHAVE?

E TARIFF Ontario Premier Appears Before the T?uiff Commission at Toronto Sitting !of 26. There are 15 Conservatives returned, and four Labor ' .and Socialists, making a total opposition of 19, if they should all support the opposition. � TWO ridings are still in doubt, that of Atlin and Prince Geofl^e in which the vote ia very close, but conceding them lioth to the opposition column, the government will, have , twenty-five supporters on the floor of the a working majority' of four to depend upon, besides the speaker. Mr. Bowser's election while con ceded on the returns so far in, may yet be upset by the absent vote, which in Vancouver, is ^uite large. The absent vote may be the deciding factor in two or three closely contested ridings and as these vote.s will not be opened and counted until the elapse of two weeks, the exact results can not be determined until the final ofticial count has been made.
