Taft, declared in an interview in this city today that a revision of the tariff is' a primary re- quisite for the relief of the present business conditions and.he expressed the hope that the revision would be accomplished by June L Speaking of this revision Mr. Taft said to a re- porter: "As this is the primary requisite for .the relief of present conditions I j want to have it disposed of at once. I am hopeful, that there will be im- portant revisions in the existing schedules made by Congress in an. extra session and look forward to June 1 as the date when most of these changes- will become effective."

He looked easv for Cove then but was an interview with James Cleave, president of the W. .Van National Manufacturers Association who call- ed to urge the creation of a perman- ent tariff "commission. After Van Cleave's departure Mr. Taft.said that he favored such a commissioTi. However, he did not favor its imme- diate appointment. He declared that he felt ,that the present tariff, sched- ulea are onerous to hueiness, halting it with the force of a drag brake, but he added that revision wag import- ant first and iben. perhaps a coromis- .sion..

The number and duration of the rounds was lessened because of the small o-atc., Camoosc 'Stewart and Curly Smith in' an interesting four round melee as a- preliminary. Smith had somewhat the better of the bout. frank. He had .letter from a firm of Imioing brokers in Toronto bearing the frauk of a member and. drawing .attention, to. mining reports in Gowganda. This led Mr. Carvel to remark that the-best thing the member in. ques- tion could do was to go to the bish- op of British Columbia and make his confession when he would be assur- ed .secrecy would be maintained and his conscience would be relieved. This brought Mr. Martin Burrell to his fees with an earnest protest against the bitterness ia public There were too many cheap jibes and puriel levity such as had just come from the lips of Mr. Ca-rvell. Mr- Foster remarked that this high ton- ed and high minded government em- ployed the solicitor general to beat the postal department by franking compaign literature. The great Lib- eral party ought to be manly enough stop robing the government' and pay for its own postage. Air. Lemieux ended the talk by stating that he intended framing drastic regulations to prevent sini- ilar abuses in. the future. Mr. Daniel, of St. John, wanted increases for the outside servants of the postoffice department and Mr-. Lemieux replied that the matter was not -one of sentiment but; business. He was looking into the matter. Good progress was made with the postoffice estimates. Mr. Lemieux incidentally remarked that Canada could not afford to duplicate a rural system as developed on the other side of the border. Edmonton, Alta., Feb.

Before these were adopted, Dr. [ason proposed that no ballot be aken one candidate and that the nomination of Hon. W. H." Cushing be made by without fur- ther delay.

Important Feature of New Election Act in Ontario Toronto, Feb. Provincial government contemplates important amendments to the Election Act. Some of''them it is believed are so ra- dical in their tendency that it is not anticipated that the measure will be finally, put in the shape aimed at un- til next session. A start however, is anticipated during the present sittixic and it may take tho form of a pre- liminary resolution by the Attorney- General oh similar lines to those ad- opted by him last year in reference to law reform. The resolution will out- line the general principles of coming changes and allowing time for the full consideration of all suggestions submitted. One of the most radical innovations proposed will be the devisLmr of some means wheeby sailors, railway n-en. and bona-fide travellers will be assur- ed- of their franchise at elections. Complaint has been made in the past that these employees are frequently called or despatched. from their place of residence just prior to election day and consequently deprived of their franchise. The Government proposes to cope with this problem. No de- tails have been officially- announced but it is reported that the plan pro- posed will provide that voters shall have opporturitv a spe- cified time before election -lay. prob- ably ten days to oast ihfiir ballots. If this plan is followed ballot box will be giveo into the custody of the county judee or returning o-Ticer for the purpose to be held him. r.eliv- ered unopen to one of the-deputies for use on election day. pre- the possibility., of-traclncr character of tho absentee.

However, one member of the audi- .ence pointed out the illustrious vis- itor. "Then n.p.and. declin- ed, to. speak because he said he would get put- in a minute or two. He added that: it f was no new t-hiag for him to be among Liberals as he had been among them-for the past- four "years. He then passed out and his face was not seen any more during the evening. The ballot was then taken, and re- sulted as follwos: Dr. Egbert- 54; Dr.'Mason 10; C.B. Eeilly 9: .D. McGillicuddy 9; TO. L, Bernard -2.. On motion of Dr. Mason, seconded by C. B. Reilly, the nomination, was made unanimous. Dr. Egbert accept- ed the nomination in. a very pleasant and appropriate speech. Hon; W; H. Cushing made a short but very in- teresting speech on the issues'before the electors and announced that the election would be held March 22.' He referred to the work that :had been done by the party -and -the lack of opposition to anything done by the .Government. There been some little fault finding, but, there was an absence of criticism. He re- ferred' to the vast extent of the pro- vince and congratulated the meeting on their selection. He asked for and expected -a clean and vigorous cam- paign. He referred to the financial standing of the prbvince and the financial policy of the government. The position of the province was ex- ceptionally good and he gave some short account of the way that thfe money had been spent upon public works. T. Moore, the silver tongued orator of Ked Beer made a very elo- quent speech in which he referred enthusiasm to the work that had been done by Mr. Cushing. The minister of Public Works is the bulwark of the government. Last year had passed through the hands of-the department. Is it not something to know that it was conscientiously spent, down to the last nickle? Have you ever heard the whisper of graft in., this depart- ment?
