ROWELL COMMENTS ON RESULT Liberals did well consider- ing great obstacles encountered NO LITERATURE Taken at a Disadvantage They have Reason to be Pleased Woodstock, Dee. at Woodstock of tlm general result of the Ontario elections'.'Mr. Rowell, the Liberal leader, said: "Tbe returns s0 far received show that the Liberals have made substan- tial gaina-throughout Lho province, but unfortunately they have suffered ie serious losses. Tho net result nppe-ars to be the gain of a few rfculs by tho Liberal party. This is consid- ered most gratifying in view of the conditions under which tho Liberal party was suffering from the disaster of Sept. 21, and the feeling of tho iscrvatiVG pnrtfcr with reference lo the provincial contest was uo doubt correctly expressed. Poor Organization "Tho Liberal party entered the without organization, without literature aud in a great many cou- nt Itunnclea vJitbout candidates. It wns impossible in of the con- dition .which' the party found itaolf JT the election of Sept. 21 in the, short time at our disposal to perfect our organisation, to secure tbe neces- sary campaign literature and -tu carry on a campaign throughout the whole province such-as would normally he carried 011 by either political party in a general election, and went into the campaign with unlimited resour- ces at its disposal, with a body of otdce holders backing it UiVoughoirL tbo whole province and with the pres- tige of tbo election of Sept 21 to support !t. "My own opinion was that If under these conditions and thus handicap- ped, we could hold our own in the present contest against the govern- ment, It would really mean that we were making substantial gains, and tbe fact that we have more than held oiir own, that we. have gained several eeats, and in .many parts of the pro- vince havo substantially reduced Is the "best evi- dence that the tide him turned, and that the Liberal party of. this prov- ince from Hi is time on make strides. There- was nerther lime nor opportunity to fairly present our progressive platform to tbe peo- ple. the people under- stand it, tho more thoroughly will it. bti appreciated. I feel that we have mitde an excellent start and that dur- ing the next four years it' we continue to BOW Uic seed of good Liberal prin- ciples and make our policy thorough- ly known to the electors tbe auto- cratic; and miprogresslve policy of Sir -lames AVhKney will be turned out of power and progressive I liberalism will receive the opportunity at the hands of the electors io enact legis- lation in the interests uf the masses of the people of the province. Strengthened In Spirit "I -truly regret the loss of a-num- ber of able members of the late Iioiiso. The country can 111 afford to part with their services. Wo have, however, elected a'number of strong Liberals in Conservative seuls, and the party will return to the house, strengthened in numbers and in spirit, by Ha progressive policy, and deter- mined .to do battle for Liberalism in the Legislature as well as in Ihe country, "tiring tho -ensuing term. 1 am personally gratified that lion, A.
