Mr. Monk gave Mr. Oliver credit Canadian As King s Physician seven months ago. Sunday's returns showed a gain of one member from Carbonnear for Morris, and those of today show that Morris will have two members from Ferryhmd, instead of one as at the election in- November. Partial jet-urns from Harbor Grace indicate that Morris will have three members. At the previous election Bond got one of the three represen- tatives from, that district.-- In Burin, partial returns show a lead for the Morns party. Previously this dis- trict was represented by Bond mem- bers. Jt pretty sure now that the .Morris administration will be sustained. The- latest Newfoundland election news show that in those constituen- cies where the count is completed Morris (Gov.) candidates have car- ried nearly all the seats as follows: Port (Gov.) de- feats BartLrtt (Opp.) by 25.

The Northerly route, he said, was almost unnavigable, and even the Southern route is dangerous. he is now engaged' in the only busi- ness that, is worth while, although a man can earn his living at another calling. Mr. Hatch, another business man, 'gave his first week night address last night. He "put them over the plate" everv time. He dealt with facts as they confront the people of Leth- bridjre. .The facts are that a great many are" on the' wrong track which leads to a dreadful destination. A life that means something ought to- be theirs. What are the Christians goinir to do about it? Mr. Gale followed the same im- pressive line of thought. The subject for tonight is "What the Bible teaches concerning Hell" and tomorrow night "The Atonement and Its Necessity." Moose Jaw, Sask., Jlay ililler, president of the Board of Trade, this afternoon telephoned Premier Scott at Regina in regard to the distress 'and need for the re- lief of settlers in the district devas- tated by prairie fire.

The premier said It was manifestly the duty of the Dominion govern- ment to afford all necessary relief to new settlers in 'distress.- Mr. Miller also wired Bruce Walker at Winnipeg, regarding the action taken by the department to afford- immediate relief to settlers south and southwest of Moose Jaw. A deputation from Moose Jaw gone' out to inspect the stricken dis- tricts. A. big concert for the reliflf of the stricken settlers will probably be held here.
