Further, these millionaire philanthropists, who had the interests of the country so much at heart, have found their pet lead- er, Mr. Sifton, to be very unpopular with the Nationalists. This section will have nothing to do with him, and as a result Mr. Sifton has been dropped. Lemieux Proses the Fight During the past three weeks Mr. Lemieux and the Liberals have been conducting a whirlwind .campaign, t'he Postmaster-General has .been giv- ng Bourassa a taste of. his own inetll- :ine. Hourassa has been quiet under the fire, and during the past three jof four weeks has had nothing to Bay.

Even bis own followers agree to this, and somo of the younger of them, headed by Jlr. Ijavejgne and Oliver Asselin, are threatening to break away. Liberals Are Enthusiastic Altogether the Conservatives and jthe multi-millionaires, who have fa- Itherctl and financed the various movements to oust Laurier from po'w er are very much discouraged. So badly discouraged are they that the Hon. Robert Rogers was sent down from JIaitoba to try and put new heart into Ihe stalwarts in this city He spent the 'better part of the week- hero, and although he offered to bet big odds that Oorden would go back with twenty-five of a majority, his boastings did not have a very great effect upon the Conservatives. On the other liand, the Liberals from the Maritime provinces and the mem- bers from this province who passed through here on their way to Ottawa! wore all jubilant over the outlook. Tho recess.has given them an oppor- tunity to consult their constituents, and without exception every return- ing Liberal is optimistic regarding the outcome of the fight. Sir Wilfrid Lanrier's enthusiastic reception in Quebec and .Montreal hns also tended to put heart. Into bis followers and discourage the Opposition to a lik extent.
