R. A. Wright The Jeweler PlMMs 165 166 ISSUER OF MARRIAGE UCENSES A TRIBUTE FROM A FOE POLITICAL (Winnipeg Free Pros.s!) Much more tragic is tlio sudden taking off of Hon. J. H. Agnew, who (lies untinu'ly in the full Hush ol rarly manhood, on the thrivshold of a careor which would have beon highly creditable to Iiinist'lf and useful to the province. Mr. Apncw was a man whom the province could ill afford to lose; for he was a type of the pub-lie man who will in the future alone be able to command the re.specl and conlidenco of the electorate. There is' no province in Canada where political feeling runs higher than in Manitob.a-and for this the reiusons arc well known. Nor is tliere a Government, federal or provincial, which is a subject of sharper criticism or more vigorou.s assault tban the Rob-lin goverinnent-for which there are also gooti reasons. But tlie closest seirch of the records since he became provincial treasurer four years ago, wr)uld fail to find a sinple liarsh stat^^'ment about, or reflection upon, Mr. Agnew. He had the good will, the confidence, and the respect of his linlilieal opironents; and h.' recipru eated Ity treating them with a courtesy and consideration which wa.s deeply appreciated by them. Mr. .Vg new bore in and out of politic.-, witli out reproaeli, tlie "grand old name of peiitleiii.aT," and his rewani wji... the regard and respect of all whe knew him or had occa.-^ion to note tin manner in wliicb li public duties. THE BIGGEST AND SMALLEST MAJORITIES CoaL Ice and : drayingI Western Transfer Co. LONG BROS.Proprietors Office opposite Balmoral (Toronto Saturday Night.) The mucli studied election returns sliow that in most of the constituencies heavy votes were polled and exceedingly large majorities rolled up in a number of cases. Mr. Vcrville. the Independent-Liberal-Labor mem-l)er-olect for Maisonneuve, the eiust-ern suburb of Montreal, leading with a majority of over four thousand-as many votes as are usually on the. en;-tire list of an average rural constituency. Looked at from the opposite standpoint-from that of the candidate who fared tlie worst-first place must be iiiven to Mr. Cotton, the young lawyer "who ran a.s an Independent against the Hon. Sidney Fisher, and .Mr. Fisher's straight Conservativ.' np]Kinent. Mr. Fisher had a majority if 320, while Mr. Cotton polled nine votes in all, just enough to make up a baseball team. Of course, Mr. Col-ton lii.ies his deposit, but, what i.s worse lie owns a local newspaper, and beca\ise of certain stal-^ments made in that paper during the campaign, not wliolly cliiig faet, by the nv.iy, that the second baronet, Sir .roliii Johnson, once had a house, on the site of the pre.ieiit Honseeours Market, as is reeoriled on a tablet ereeted on the east end of that building. Sir John's portrait is in tlie Chateau de liauiezay, as well as one or two fine speeiniens of the old-fa.shiotied dinner service that one.' belonged lo hini.

'I'ipcs, Hitchie, Dcsoi-encourt, Ilnura-liuu, (Juigloy, Kolsoy, McCormack, Jiiglo, Doyla, Oihnour, S. r.arson, W. Symoiids. The Secretary ivportod ImviuK ru-cciveil several outstapdliig donations to the In.st l.4ibor Day Fund, and tho coinmittoij wore enabled to close tbfir report in tho following term.9, "Owing to tho liberality of the morchnnts and others in the city wo are ploas-rti to say Hint dospile our heavy expenses incurred on I.,nbrir I>ay, wo were able to meet all liabilitloa." In accepting the report u hearty vote of thanks was tendered the committee for the satisfactory maimer In which they had carried out the program. The .Secretary brought up the mat-tor of the Socialist part.y having the uso of hall on Sundays, lie state^l that tlio auditing comnilttco were to have mot on Sunday Inst but while he was wailing for the memhors of this coniiniltee to turn up, the Social ists put in an appearance. They ^ore untler the impression thoy had the u.so of the hall every Sunday, and it this wore so it placed the Trades and Lalior roimcil in an unfortunate position; as if hoth. the latter de!�t.T�,l the hall on Sunday they were roquir-oil to ask pornii.ssioii from tho Social ists. As the latter paid no rent, ho thought some new arrangements should bo made. A Delegate-The Socialist Party wore prepared to vacate in favor of tho Councilf '� One iiiember thought as it was a; diiricult matter for the Socialist Forty to k.iow when the Council required tho hall, or vice versa, a post canl to the .secretary of the party woulrt oiilighton them as to whether tho.v should moot or not. Anotlior member thought that tho Socialists were expecting too much fiM- nothing and should at least pay for tho coal. SKXIl IX THK Bn-L This Was met with the retort "Send in your liill. Tho Trades and Labor Council voted the"ii.so of the hall free to tho Socialist Party. We are not broke." .V fornior motion regarding tho frco use of the hall to the Socialist Party was rescinded, and thereafter a hearty vote of thanks was extended tho Council for hel|)ing the Socialists through tho initial stages of organization. .V delegate from the Federal Labor union mentioned that a non-union man had beon working on a certain liuilding. but was ultimately persuaded to join tho ranks of unionism. In this ro.ipect tho Carpenters also had beon having trouble. One non-union man,had been working, but after the delegate had received the authority of the boss of the Jolj on tlio subject. th� man decided to sign the application form for membership. , mjILDl.Vfi THADKS ALUANCIO trades unionism on tho other. tlo would not caro to procond with the publication without tho sMppofI of lioth. lie luul liitondod to "keep tho llapor open for .Soclultsni and trades unionism, but as there was an apparent antagonism, he did not fool like storting the iiapcc to I050 tho support of either one side or other as both wore necessary to uioku tho paper a success. . A dologato m\\i\ ho would not caro what it was so long as It was a labor paper. Ho instanced one paper which was run on lairoly trades union linos. Ho thought, Socialists should bo criticized as they wore not [xsrfcct by any means. If tho latter got a column to discu.ss tho subject, ho thought it would give trades unionists a chance to .see what thoy meant. Flo wanted to -soo a paper of this kind as it would bo an imiiort-out factor in woaiiiiig the workers from the political pai-ties. Thoy would always have dilTeronces and ho asked tho delegate to reconsider his decision. , KviMitually it was left over until ho had interviewed the .Socialists on tho subject. , UNION LAIIKI.
