He dwelt on how the women had shown their worth in the war and how the lasses as teachers had the great responsibility of training the rising generation. The toast of the "Band" was re- plied to by Mr. P. W. Downer, who expressed his pride in the Pipers, who were, he said, always willing and al- ways helped to make civic events a success. They were the finest lot of men he had ever met in his life. The toast of "The Press" was re- sponded to by Mr. W. A. R. Cocq. "The Immortal Memory" The toast of the evening, to "The Immortal was left In the hands of Mayor Hardle, who made a unique departure by giving the audi- ence a horoscope of the national poet as he deciphered It. Amongst the many points tho mayor brought out was that Burns was "honorable, high- minded, and even quite gentlemanly. All this Is brought out by the fact that even when his passions' led him astray he was always willing and glad to make the best amends." "His friendship was of the most devoted kind, and with h'im It was 'once a friend always a friend......He was a clever reasoner and could measure In a degree beyond his compatriots the enthralling sentiments of his "There Is a great peculiarity In all men born In the sign that Burns was horn In; public parades and pub- lic resorts are their delight."

In ers will have a candidate, anil he will not he tho Liberal candidate. That was settled yesterday by a state- ment made by Pres. II. W. Wood of tho U.'F.A. in Calgary that there would be no fusion of Liberal and farmer interests. Three names are prominently men- tioned in connection with the gov- ernment candidature. These are C.. A. Magrath, former member for Modi- cine Hat when that seat included thu present Lethbridgo riding; Dr. Ruther- ford, member of the Board of Hail- way commissioners, and a former member of the Manitoba legislature; and Nelson Spencer, sitting member for Medicine Hat in the legis- lature. Mr. Magrath and Dr. Butherford are both prominently mentioned because they are both considered by the gov- ernment to be good cabinet timber. Dr. Rutherford, whose close associa- tion witn agriculture during his car- eer in the west, is looked upon at. the logical man for the portfolio of agriculture, now held by Hon. Dr. Tolmie of British Columbia. Mr. Magrath is now chairman of the Can- adian section of the International Waterways Commission. He is a close student of western affairs, and would be admirable timber for the portfolio of the interior. The likely farmer choice seems to lie between President Harris of the Medicine Hat U.F.A.
