If anything, the Liberals were more cheerful. "When the Conservatives forced au election on tlie reciprocity said Sir Wilfrid Laurier, at Sudbury, .'I said to myself, 'Surely the Lord is good unto Mis own, for He lias deliv- ered miii'a enemies into hands.'" British sentiments of the Uourassa wing. in Quebec left him open to the clmrgo that he wanted office at the sacrifice oC iifij-Ioiml harmony.
