The occasion was a "smoker" ten- dered as a 'welcome to the .M.P., after his five months' absence at Ottawa While the audience was not large It was sir interested 'one, for the oc- casion was. tho-Krst in .two years in which Mr. Buchanan" had an oppor- tunitj to discuss Federal questions with his'-liei'rers.

Mr. Buchanan did not set out to say anything new; intention was merely to review'the'legislation of the past three .'years, explaining how its application would affect this constit- uency and the whole Dominion, and with that he was content. In his prediction that an election might be sprung at any time, probably this fall, he was supnorted by Sena- tor De Veber, who retained home yes- terday and who was upon the platform.

Tho Farm- ers' Bank bill was a plain .vote catch- er and U'.e Conservative Senators themselves very kindly squashed it, thereby, relieving Mr. Borden from having sot a very.bad precedent. In-Introducing'the speaker of the evening, President Wllklc referred In very flattering terms to Mr. Buchan- an's efforts at btta'wa, declaring that, though on the opposition side of tho HoilBC. he .had made, himself known and highly respected among members of both .parties by his very fair meth- ods In 'inatUTs In which he took a linrt..
