ELECTIONS The agitation for temperance re- j form received a severe setback in the Ontario elections. The temperance advocates ia that province have been clamoring for tie abolition of the bar for years but neither of the -political parties would commit themselves to the issue until Newton Wesley.Row- ell assumed the leadership Lib- eral parly less than three rears ago. After the provincial elections of 1911 lie framed a platform and Uie aboli- tion of the bar was made the chief During the intervening period he lias kept this-policy to-the-fore- front in face of strong opposition within his own party, but he naturally anticipated to more than offset the losses with gains 'amongst the tem- perance Conservatives The result proves that temperance men, at least the majority of them, prefer party to principle. Ontario 3s: a strongly tem- perance "province" but not sufficiently so for men to desert their party. The temperance Conservatives likely salv- ed their consciences 'with the opinion that local option better than abolition of the.-bar :throughout the province. The effect of the election in On- tario is not as disastrous to the.Lib- eral party as it is to..the temperance forces.

He may determine to keep up the fight provided he gets the backing of his supporters. Believing the issue 'to be right and in the interests of the province he will almost assuredly Bland by his principles or give up the leadership. It must be said for the Whitney ad- ministration in Ontario that it has not been open to much criticism. The man at its head is not a progressive but he is honest and fearless and had loyal admirers and more especially so since his long and almost fatal ill- ness. It can be said for Mr. Rowell that he fought 'hard and ably, and kept the government forces on the defensive insofar as the temperance issue is concerned.

That day has come to be regarded as an epoch in her history, and on Wednesday its anniversary will be celebrated for the forty-seventh time. Coupled with the day wo commemorate under one de- signation, the Fathers of Confedera- tion, the names of the men under whose auspices the eventful step was taken, wherein diverse interests were merged into a harmonious whole and, consolidated" into strength by unity, the new Dominion started on ber tri- umphal march of progress, unprece- dented as to its making, in the 'his- tory of nations. Much -as we in the west are used to rapid development, we cannot 'but be struck by the wonderful strides the Whole country has made since 1867. Our total trade at that period was something over one hundred million dollam Today it considerably ex- ceeds one billion. And wherever we look, be it in the matter of railway development, iniahd navigation, post- al" and telegraph faeirrtles, or popula- tion, the figures reveal leaps and bounds since the time -some fifty years o. In agricultural development, in our forestry, and minerals, and In' our manufactures, we read the came wonderful story of progress.
