This want should be supplied at any rate from Second avenue up to the end of the score line. "With the requests of North Letn-bridgie we are entirely in sympathy, and trust to: their, being',met.in the Snly reasonable spirit.

Although the universal prayer is "More power to them." they seem to have gone t0 the mat.

If anyone elm come' along and supply Lethhridge with twenty dolljw power, not the ten hour a day kind, but the sort that's on tap 365 days a year for 24 hours per diem, it's a safe bet that the CityvDads will hook up with him so quick he'll hardly know where once. he's at.

A Liberal from early conviction, he has stood by his political fafth through good and through evil report. ."I got my baptism of fire" he said "when ,1 was a lad: It 'was at the election of 1868 and I was acting as doorkeeper at p. meeting held In support *of-Mn Dowse, the Liberal can-, dldate for Derry.

'" None..whatever," was.the emphatic reply "nor does anyone else in Ireland. They are merely stage effects got up to throw dust in the eyes of. the British people; and all I hope is that you in England will not be deceived by them." "Do you think," I asked, "that sectarian and political bitterness is decreasing in Ulster?" "I am sure of it" was . the reply, "and that Is why the present attempt to revive it is so mischievous - and. criminal. But it ib only the last spurt, of the old ascendancy spirit. Six months after the Irish Parliament has begun its sittings it will only be a dark memory of the past." .
