Money Ill-Spent Tho millioiiHlrcs who met last HpriiiK in the .Mount Royal Cliih and put lip a good half million to defeat rorllirocity are sore over .Mr. Hor-dpn's utloranceB In tho WphI. ft ia asserted that on his return to Ottawa they wrote him a riirt letter askhiK him whether he thought that they had put up this money for the furtherance of a socialistic and puhlic ownership movempnt, or whether it was for the purpose of defeatinK reciprocity. These men have not accumulated their fortunes hy socialistic methods, and are naturally very much averse to tho advocacy of puhlic ownership by their party leader. Mr. Borden wrote an equally curt reply, saying he was not going lo be dictated to hy them. Further, these millionaire philanthropists, who had the interests of the country so much at liearr, have found their pet leader, Mr. Sifton, to ho very unpopular witli tho Na'^onalists. This section will have nothing to do with him, and as a result .Mr. Sifton has been dropped. Lemleux Presses the Fight During the past three weeks Mr. Lemleux and the Liberals have heen conducring a whirlwind campaign. The ['ostmaster-Gcneral has been giv-Ing Hourassa a taste of his own medi-Icinc. Uourasaa has been (juiet under I the fire, and duriUK ilie past three I of I'our weeks has had nothing to sny. j'Ihroughoiit the province and in tho cities it is comnion talk that Baur-assa has "shot his holt," and that his influpiice is on tho decline. Kven ills own followers agree to this, and some of the younger of them, headed hy Air. Lavp^pne and Oliver Asselin, are threatening to break away. Liberals Are Enthusiastic .Miogether the Conservatives and the multi-millionaires, who have fa-Itherod and financed the various movements to oust Laiirier from power are very much discouraged. So badly discouraged are they that the Hon. Robert Rogers was sent down from -Maitoha to try and put now lipart into the gtalwarls In this city, lie spent the better part of the week here, and alihougli he offered to bet big odds thai Borden would go hack witb twpniy-flvp of a majority, his boastings did not have a very great effect upon tho Conservatives. On the other hand, the Liberals from the MarUime provinces and the members from this province who passed through here on their way to Ottawa, were all Jiibilnnt over the outlook. The recess.has given them an oppoi--tuuiiv to consult their constituents, and wiihout pxocpiion over.v returning Liberal is optimistic regnrding tlio outcome of ihe fight. Sir Wilfrid Laurier's enthusiastic reception In Quebec and .Montreal has also tended to put heart into his followers and to discourage the Opposition to a like extent. The outlook, so far as this province is i'onceruod was never �brighter for tho Lilierals. Macleod News Macleod, Alta., .July 2fl -.ARcnt F .Stephens, of the C. P.
