With exception of a scattering Cobdenite section led by Lord Cromer and voiced by the Spectator, the Unionist Party is now practically united in support of tariff revision, and are supplementing the battle of the session by an earnest propoganda in the provinces in anticipation of an early dissolution, when this ques- tion is almost certain to overshadow all else, members cally been served with notice to quit, and possibly they will be driven into the Liberal fold.

The witness was, put through a searching cross-examina- tion in order to -test her memory, and verify details in regard to the" life and habits of the deceased and his condition-when on a spree. To His Lordship witness stated that in his opinion Keyes left his property to Mrs, Bouck because she had tended to him in his different pe1- riods of sickness and had acted to him like a mother and because Keyes tolrt him that his brothers and sis- ters could not treat like Mrs. Bouck and witness. Witness' wife and himself had first looked after Keyes in the letter's own place. Keyes would be sick every three months. Thn time he made the will at Bouek's house was the first, time he had been there. Keyes had given the horse and rig to Mrs. Bouck for the same reason: Witness said he did not re- collect -telling Mr. Perry, Mr. Mossip and others at the time of .'-Keyes' that Keyes had no relations in the east. Witness had heard Keyes speak of his sister Eliza Rose, but of no other relatives. Robert Burgess knew James Keyes slightly. He had had-'a conversa- tion one day with Mr. Keyes, in which Mr. Keyes spoke _ of Mr. and Mrs. Bouck. This was about two months before Keyes' death. Keyes stated that Mr. and Mrs. Bouck had been like a fattier and mother to him if anything happened to him he was going to see that they wore well paid.
