All Brititk h -Lever IS roth era Limited Toronto, Ottawa Journal Press) A brief Is the legal word for a law- yer's presentment of his case. It la Interesting to note the nature of the Laurier brief before tbe people of Canada. The champion arguments of the EO far In this campaign, offered principally lu tfte province of Quebec, have been, cat-cult and bad eggs, aesisted by bricks, guns, anil threats of lynching Where the pa.-iy- is strong In num- bers, It wins tho debate every lime before the debate slarls. Tho next favorite argument of Ihc arty, wherover to use a club Is not safe Is that the Unionists represent the capitalists. Tho contest Is lavishly pic- tured by (he Luurierito campaign lit- eral urc as a fight between Ihe classes and the masses, "I have always striv- en to promote unity and harmony In Canada." said Sir Wilfrid Laurier in his election manifesto, and or course a fine way to promote unity and har-; inony Ifj Canada is by trying to call social venom to his assistance, la this campaign. The result of the election will shou', we venture to prophesy, that loth tho classes and the masses In this country see through thin lit- tle game, and are both against the qiiiltera, Next Jn order In the Laurier field batteries is drum-fire upon what they allege the forhfer Dordcn gov- ernment did or failed to do. Every political parrot in tho fol- lowing croaks about alleged pur- chases of haj army boots or unduly ancient horses, or about the Itoss rifle, or Wesley Allison or colonels whatnot; and some outside the party like J. S. En-art, K.C., lift their voices and weep about what Dordcn with tho Nattonaltfits, They all pretend they are teirlbly concerned about these Uilngs, and are using their Indignation honestly.
