FIRE AT WEiST DUNDEE Elgin, 111., Juno which did damage at West Dundee, four milfis from here, was brought under control today, with the- assistance of fire apparatus from this city. Toronto, Ont., -June 30. Once again Whitney has swept this; prov- ince and the reason is ascribed in a marked degree to the personality of Sir James himself; I'nlil the light of his appearance in Masscy neither party had caught the pulse of public iavpr. Af- ter that, however, the tide, turned. The government does; not come back as strong comparatively as before, but docs come back stronger in ef- iciency. Ten seats have been lost and six. gained, but the heavy men arc re- tained. The campaign has not been a very encouraging one to the Oittailu opposition. Liberal. ranks have been reinforced by the addition of new men, the majority ol these having come from what arc known as French great moral issue which will not down, and for which there is hut one: solution." In Toronto every seat was contest- ed cither by a Liberal or a Temper- ance candidate, hut the city stood faithfully by its party allegiance and every Whitney candidate was elected. Only one cabinet minister, Hon. Dr. Hheaume, Minister of Public Works, was defeated. Me had a three-corner- ed fight in being opposed by. 0. E. Fleming, another'Conservative, and Kev. J. C. T. Tolmie, the split in the Tory ranks letting the Liberal in by a big majority. The bilingual school .question Had nearly as 'much to do with bringing seats into the Liberal fold as Banish the Bar. While Mr. Rowell had pro- nouhcec! that Knglish should be the language taught fo every Ontario child, he gained scats on account of the regulations on- this question pass- ed by the Whitney administration. Every scat in the province dominated by the French Canadian vote with two exceptions, Nipissing anil Teniib- jkaming, went against the Consena- tiu N. W. ROWELL, K.C. Who Is still "Lesder 6f-Lire Opposi- tion" in Ontario. While his "Abollsh- the-.Bar" campaign In gave him'some half-dozen more supporters, it proved a disappointment to himself and the temperance forces Once more winner at the Pre- mier Whitney will handle the in Ontario for another four years, with a sUghlly decreased majority Commissioners One and All Plead for Money Bylaws Ask that AH Bylaws be Passed That Monuments May be Turned Into Utilities-Pay Honest Debts North Lethbridge heard the last of the doubtful, details concerning the money bylaws to be voted on next Thursday, cleared away last night at the meeting held in Galbraith school, nnd practically every ratepayer will have bis mind made up jiist how to cast his ballot en the eventful day., Considering the torrid condition of the weather, (here was u large ;it- 'tenilancc, which shows that the North Lcthbvidgc ratepayers are 'an- xious to learn of the city's affairs, Tlie liaii was fiilerl, and rapt atten- tion met the discussions emanating from the commissioners, each one of wlinni .successfully explained the by- laws affecting lift Commissioner Grace was the first Up speak, anil in a few well selected sentences, put his casn before tlie peo- pie. He urged that every one of the 'propositions in bylaw 235, of which there are ten. he endorsed by the j burgesses, and gave good reasons why they should he passed. In preparing estimates Mr. Grace limited him- iself to work that seemed to him mc-'it. necessary.

Installation oi water meters, now new .ser- vices, extensions to water mains, a sewage disposal plant, new storm J JBpift'vrfi oil street and OH Gib avenue A, ami for gas connections to the city storehouse ami n spur track to the city storehouse. The bylaw to- tals about including the in- terest, and sinking fund charges on the, debentures, and iill of these arc con- sidered necessary by Mr. Grace. Prac- tically everything is new excepting .the high pressure water system. If iiic r.r? passed, Mr. Grace thinks the work will be started this cummer, so that the men in the city who are now out of work, will be- given "employment.1 -PUBLIC UTILITIES Commissjoi.itfr Held, whose bylaw totals explained in detail Canadian ridings.. Mr. Uowcll himself formed the centre ot a keen electoral struggle in which his majority was reduced from 5u'Q to 120.- Several of the old time Liberal ridings switched and sent men to stand he- j ncatli the Conservative banner.

He had 10 when the last !session closed. i The first returns which came in j from the east showed the way in which the tides were setting in the French Canadian counties. j Government officials were not hop- ing for much from the east after the school agitation, and at that door they lay'tlie loss of Ottawa cast'and west. N. Rowell, was .thankful of 'the gains he had made, but regretted the results were not more encouraging. He also blamed the short .limcjie hr.d lo campaign. v. election has, however, brought a new spirit into the politics of Ontario. "It has also brought into politics a large number of men, and very high standing who had never be- fore entered into politics and this is a guarantee of the ultimate success of my parly. Ben 11.
