A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN Whitney of Ontario remark the day at- the witness box. provincial elections in Premier made a ter the that province, that election cam- paigns lasted too long. A cuuple of weeks only of warfare between the 'parties was preferrable to a six weeks' siege. ilr. Whitney's suggestion sounds good, but whether it is feasible or not is the question. Could ail the constituencies be covered in two weeks' time it would be better for the province and bettor for the peo- ple if the campaign was not allowed Side lights J HE WAS F1UOHTENEJ) OF D'AL- TON (Toronto Saturday Night.) Buck in the curly nineties in one of tho Ontario courts, there was an Ir- ishman before the court on a very so- :ious charge. Just before the trial started he confided the wholo story to the judge. The late D'Altqn Mc- Carthy wns for the prosecution, tin Irishman was ordered to enter the witness box and did so. Mr. McCar- thy arose from the extreme end of tho witness table, pulled his gown up ov er one shoulder and then over the other, coughed u couple of times in affectation of clearing his throat picked up a large sheet of law paper from the table and rustled it between his fingers us if in process of struigh eniug it out, with fine assumed grav ity, all the while proceeding towards The poor Irishman was getting more frightened every time the clock ticked over on the opposite wall. He had heard of Mr. McCarthy in cross- examination, but ill-fortune had ne- ver brought him into contact with the famous lawyer be-fore. Tho cli- cnnx came when Mr. McCarthy was yet six feet from the dock. The Irish- man turned to the judge us a refuge and said: "Judge, what 1 told you is the God's truth ami if 1 should tell Mr. to run any longer than that period, j McCarthy anything jjlse 'tis a The longer the campaign the more tie." bitter becomes the fight, and the less bitterness we have in politics the bet- ter for all of us. Most take their politics far more seriously than their religion. A man may differ with us on religion and we are not worried or annoyed to any extent by the criticisms he may oiler in our belief. Hut it is a different thing with politics. We get very arid u.ot tempered in political arguments. In fact so bit- ter docs the feeling become at times that life-long friends decline to speak to each other because of some paltry difference of opinion over po- litical questions. If a campaign two weeks in length would obliterate these features of po- liticaJ, warfare; every peace loving citizen would welcome its introduc- tion. Tho dignity of the court was com- pletely overborne. Even the judge laughed. Cardston Budget Curdston, June last Hoard f Trade meeting authorized tho uec- ssary expenditure to gather ui> and nx'pure n fine display of the products of this district at the C'ulgury fuir. The real estiUo firms of the town were uiso duly eoiuniissioiu'd to take churgo of the display en route and the exhibition grounds.

A school teacher after spending for- ty-five strenuous moments explaining the mysteries of physiology i.o the primary class sounded their intelli- gent attention by askiug the defini- tion of "vertibrtie." A small and anxious boy on the back seat arose and delivered the following. "The vertibrac is a long, wavy bone. My head sits on one end of it and I sit on the other." BOWVILLE DR. REID CHARGED WITH GRAFT The case against Dr. Reid, Conser: vativo M.P. for Oreiiville, was com- menced in the Public Works Commit- tee on Wednesday. It appears from the testimony of the ship's carpenter employed in the government yards at Prescott, that Dr. Held had his yacht Dack hauled up on the ways and re- paired by three men at the govern- ment's expense, and that this was done by permission of J. F. Fraser, commissioner of lights. One of the men, the caulker, appears to have been paid, but there still remains a substantial, bill against Dr. Reid for expenses in connection with his boat. Dr. Reid has been very active in the Public Accounts Committee, try- ing to prove that another vessel was repaired at the Government docks be- longing to one Merwin. The evidence shows that Merwin paid all the ex- penses, but so far it does not appear that the people have been pafcl for the cost of repairing the Dack, the property of one of the Conservative critics, Dr. Reid also used the Gov- ernment ways to haul out another boat of his for which service nothing was paid to the government. Had such a thing been done by any- Liberal member of Parliament, the welkin would have rung with charges o! grafting, and another scandal would have been announced. As it Bowville, June the meeting held in Bowville hall to decide on a program for the Fourth of July Mr. John was elected speaker for the evening. It was decided to have n baseball game and other sports during the day to wind up with a ball in the evening. Mr. John Wall, J. B. Lukens and Ed.

A good crowd was present There was preaching in the evening by the Rev. Mr. Scragg. Monday morning Mr. John Renolds and Mr. Ben White took two wagon loads of flax to Lethbridge. Mr. Tommy Dolan and Mr. John Clark were Claresholm visitors this delegates to the Convention of West- ern Boards of Trade to be held at the Hat 18th to 21st at the last meeting of the Board. Messrs.

No one is better equipped by nature and ex- perience to picture the life of range, ranch and round-up. lie is whole-hearted, broad-minded, clean-cut Westerner, the best type of he picturesque cowboy who is fast lisappearing. He represents the high est specimen of the western rancher is lie is today, the kind from which President Roosevelt, then a lieuteu- aut-colouel, drew the members of his 'Hough Rider" regiment when he went war with Spain. With the of them, Zach Miller can break bronchoes, whirl the lariat, boss a round-up t-amp or bring down a prowling prairie wolf. On ,the ranch he is "chief" of more than two hundred cowboys. The most skillful mid reckless among them are with the show that bears the 101 Ranch name. When the Millers 'organized the exhibition that is coming here, they filled its ranks from the abun- dant yield of their vast possessions. Indians, cowboys, cow-girls, horse wranglers, champions of the lasso, experts with gun and pistol, frontiers men, hunters, scouts, pioneers, trap- jers, "bucking" and spotted saddle lorses, ponies, steers, buffaloes and ill the other features of the spectac- ular nnd fast-receding western ranch were at hand. Mr. Miller is a conspicuous figure in the arcnic entertainment and will lead the forenoon street parade through the pr4ncipal streets. This pageant is unique among out-door spectacles. It resembles an old-time caravan crossing the interminable plains. More than a hundred Indians squaws, belles ant! papoos es, form a fantastic deoartment oF it. SNAP FOR.

OUR POINT OF VIEW It was the fat man's race at Chi- cago, right. The Roosevelt boom went up in the air. Toft is it, and there was no use 01 holding a convention at Chicago tn find that out. Speaking of Hilliard Cnrneigie, M P.P., for East Victoria as a possibl successor of lion. Nelson Monteith as I .Minister of Agriculture the Petcrboro i Review says, "Moreover he is straight and yet popular." Evidently it is remarkable for a man to be stra ght and popular at the same virne in OntoHo. The Bowviiyies were treated to a cone the other day.
