BUCHANAN Federal Member's Course Approved-High Praise for Hon. Archie McLean (Special to the Herald). Raymond, March 17.-Mark Y. Croxall was chosen president ot ll>e Liberal association at llaymond last night and in a few well chosen words expressed himself as beinf; in harmony with the present Liberal policy, both provincial and that ot the l)omini.on. Mr. Croxall said he had made a carefiil study of the doctrines of the political parties ot Canada, but te\t that the policies of the Liberal party more'neairly mat the needs ot the people, at large, therefore he oast his lot with that party. Continuing,, he said that his present attitude was not a surrender of his independant stand, taken heretofore, but simply acquiescence in the manner in which this "great party had developed � the country and managed the aftairs of the Dominion. Good government i.s good business and deserves the support 6t the people and it is the'duty of every individual to be enthusiastic in the protection of the institutions that protect your home. He referred to his throe-year-old daughter, wk(o picked up a paper maple;leaf from the floor and began to sing' the \Maple Leaf Forever, adding that we should all teach our children to he loyal to the flag and coun-, |;ry that aitord us protection. .He said he flrmlyi-bolieved in the Liberal; naval^polloy. and - thought .the pa^ty," in poweE,A^)iould. appeal to the,country on tliis question as ^ it involved some �very;'important, matters that would aflect the nation for years to come.., ^ In.Mr. Croxall ,the Liberals ot Ray-; mond HavcrJt man who spea:ks what be thinks and has the ability to do' so in a pleasing and convincing, manner.

J. 0!Brien was chosen secretory-treasurer, and in his acceptance ot the office declared-himself as perfectly satisfied with the manner in which the Liberal party had conducted the affairs of the country. Had always supported the party since coming to Canada amd was eager to lend his assistance to accomplish the good work outlined in the progressive policy of his party. 0. W.Lamb, B. Spencer Yoimg and John 'Powelson were chosen to make lip the executive of 'the local organization; Mr.' Lamb saM he was not much of a talker, but could work and was always willing to do his part to assist ' hi.s party in their CAmpaigns. H'b believed tHc Liberal' party was the party of tile people and tliat if the party in power appealed to the people at the present time, on the naval question; that the Liberal parrty would be returned. , Editor a Boo.ster Mr. Young pledged his support and paper to the Liberal party and that because he was convinced it was the party for the people. Dr.^ Keillor moved a resolution that It be the sense of this meeting that we endorse tlie action of Mr. W. A. .Buch�|nan in the Dominion parliament on the naval question' in particular and send Mr. Buchanan -word that we uphold him in the stand he takes in tills: matter. The resolution carried amid cheers, and it was with some difficulty that the chairman restored, quiet; Dr. vKeillor also moved a resolution expressing our .satisfaction with the able manner in which Hon. A. J. Mc-, Lean I has conducted tlte affairs ot the province in his department, and the very careful juanncr in which he has ' distributed the improvements througliout his constituency.
