Indionnpolis, Nov. 10.-After occupying room.s in the building at the corner of Pennsylvania and Washington Streots as law offices continuously for thirty years, Vice-President Fairbanks vacated thcni today, and his large law library was moved to liis house, and it is said it will be put in the attic. Though Mr. FairljanicB ha-s been in politics activelj" since 1886, he has maintained his offices, and occasionally ha.s appeared in tlio trial of caaes in court. Since he was elected to the Senate, however, he has been more of a consulting attorney than an active practitioner. The fact that he has vacated hig offices nnd niovwl his library to his residence Is construed to moan thai be may retire from the, active practice of law permanently. Friends say that the Vice-President is very fond of the farm, and that he may devote all of his time to his larfte landed interests iu IllinoLs after his retirement from office on March 4. ITALIAN CAR WON Savannah, Nov. 25.-W. M. Hil-liard of Boston, Mass.., driving Ihe Italian entry, the Lancia, won *he first International light car automobile race ever run in this country here today.

THE CANADA Actually Pays for Itself in Cold Cash IN SAVING at least -25 per cent, of tin? fuel bills J IN REDUCING the time usually spent in the kitchen by oiie-quartei- t IN ELIMINATING the distasteful cirudgeiy nece.s.5{uy to keep the common range in presentable condition I FUEL If Canada Ranges were made like other ranges it would be ridioulonB to claim a. one-fourth fuel saving. But they are not. Even the material is entirely different. Canada ranges are made of malleable iron mid rivfted together instead of being joined by bolts and scams tilled in with stove putty. The Canada gives year in aul year out good economical service that cannot be expected of a common, leaky steel range. TIRill? ^luch of the time spent in kitchen work ia 1IIVIH absolutely watted- waiting for the top to become hot in the morning, or the oven to come to baking boat. The Canada air-tight malleable construction saves this time. A piping hot fire in five minutei after opening the drafts is the regular time. LABOR-^Thc Canada i� easily cleanod. The uickle-work and orniunentntion is .specially adapted for easy cleaning. All conier.s are rounded. No bolt heads or nut.s on the face of'the doors or medalionp. (Hon. Clitlord Sitton fti Chamber ol Commette .Banqu�t in ew York,) VAs bns^eaa men, you know th�t th^ mott diflfSouli mHa to do buainexs with is ouo wlio tri� to combine (ricndship; ktad ttcntim^nt with bus!-n'caii. With an aiiompt alway� results iu bittcrneso, disappointment and misuudersUndiuR. But, i! it i� clearly undertlood that Canada has no right to ask the United SUtce to modify its commercial policy in any single respect, except the United States considers it to its own advan* tago to do so, and if you will roaog-nice precisely the same principle in regard to Canada, there will bo no difficulty ^between the two countries upon this subject. Wc hove no right to complain because you erect a-high tarlfl. nearly double as high as ours, (or the purpose of excluding our goods; similarly you have no right to complain it Canada trftmea her tariff to suit herself, grants a prcicrencc to Great Britain, makes a commeTcial treaty with Prance, or lor her own advantage, gives any other country .special treotment in which you do. not participate. These arc matters in which each country has a perfect right to settle its own affairs, ond if wo can clearly grasp this idea and (ret rid of the notion that because the action of our ncighber is not in our interest we ore entitled to (eel irritat�d and cherish a disposition to retaliate, wo shall have gone a long' way towards eliminating sources of trouble. Rstaliation Idta Absurd "There is no excuse whatever lor either country entert^aiuing the idea of retaliation. It is purely a question of business interests and business advantages iu which each eoua try most consider what is best (or itself. You arc perfectly able to get along without making trade arrangements with Canada, and Canada has shown itself perfectly able to get along without making trade arrange-mentfi with the United States. We sought reciprocity with you for many years. We are not seeking it now Like you, in your large way, we in our smaller way are doing well. We are perfectly satisfied with matters as they stand. If and when it becomes in your judgment to your interest to make any changes which will be beneficial to Canada and to make any propo-'^als for similar changes on our part there is no reason why these proposals should not be debated with perfect calmness and with the clear understanding that no proposals will be accepted upon cither s'de which are not considered of advantage to the country which i.s asked to adopt them. Canada No Longtr Dcpendtnt "There are, however, some considerations which may lead to a somtv what large view of these matters than it has been possible to entertain in past years. Canada has arrived at a point when it has no longer an irritating sense of dependence or inability to work out its own destiny. It Is safely upon the road to rapid and assured development of it� natural resources. It has no racial or social problems which threaten it� stability. It has no large masses of population living in poverty and want. Peace, plenty and prosperity are within its borders. Its political position is no longer, if it ever were so, a subject of doubt. It is therefore in a position to discuss the various problems arising in connection with foreign commerce without feeling that any particular proposed arrangement is essential to '-ts existence. Therefore a large view may be expected to prevail when negotiations arise. On the other hand, the United States has within the last few years abandoned its policy of isolation. It has, like Great Britain, acquired dominion-^ beyond the seas, and it has assumed the responsibilities of a world power. With the assumption of such greater responsibilities, it ia reasonable to suppose that you will look somewhat diflercntly upon questions of an international character." Dealing further with the plunge of the United States into a colonial policy, Mr. Sifton said: "The eminent statesman who has lately been elected as the Chief Magistrate of the United States has shown his genius in solving some of these problems, and, however distinguished may be his career as your Chief Magistrate, it will always remain true that one of his chief claims upon the regard of posterity will be that he Is the first of what, no doubt, will be a long line of colonial administrator-), who will conduce to the success of your administration in distant pos-seeslons."

Many causes are contributing to weaken tlui government candidates and to strougthen the position of tho Liberal.opponon,Ui; Not tho least of those ia the splendid votes given tho Liberals in' the recent general eloc-tlon m tho face of tho strenuous efforts made by 'Mr. Hnzon to swing tho province to Mr. Borden. Many Liberals who helpeil tahu put the old government out, feeling It was time tor a chonge, resent the active part ho took In the Federal light, they also resent the many dismissals that have taken place of Liberals who held office under the old provincial govern ment. Those and dissatisfaction with the road law and other legislation hafve weakened the government's strength before the country while local conditions in Northumberland, where there is an open revolt against tho machine candidate are all factors in tho Opposition's favor.; Ernest Hutchinson, retired lumberman and n thoroughly inttcpcndcnt man who an-nouneed himself n candidate with the approval of Hazen and Hon.

PREMIER SCOTT FILES HIS GRAFT CHARGES THREE YOUNG CANADIANS. Alleges Laird Got 92,000 From Con-: tractlng Firm and Excessive  Rent for Warohouso IBE CURSE OF THE MINISTRY Is Those Who Are in it Just to Make a Livelihood. Toronto, Nov. 26.-"None should take the ministry of the Gospel as a mere means of livelihood.'" This wiis tho statement made by Rev. Dr. K. N. Baker, of Euclid Avenue Methodist Church, before the Spirituol Conference, ol Laymen and Ministers of Toronto West District in Wesley Methodist Church. "The curse ol the ministry today " said Dr. Baker, "is the presence in it of those who entered upon ti u work as a means of livelihood, as an occupation they could fill with profit to themselves, and with a cejtain amount of plea'jure. "If men are not called of God to enter the work; if the divine impulj-e is not in their hearts, then I think they should remain laymen." Regina, Nov. 26.-The Laird-Scott libel case came before the court again today and the order of judge that the defence file particulars of graft charge against Laird was complied with. Alex Ross for Mr. Scott filed lengthy document in whichjhc alloges that in October 1906 Mr. Laird received from the contracting firm of Dobson, Jackson A; Fry the sum of |1,600 and in February of 'he same year he received $500 from McComb sewer pipe company. It is alleged that these were Laird's share for getting the coifiracts awarded. It is also alleged that during every month of 1904, Laird received from Dobson, Jackson & Fry excessive rental for cendent in his warehouse at Regina. Another charge made is that Laird used his position as alderman of the city to secure waterworks connections for one Reginald Kirk, located on the eastern annex in .vbioh Laird was int'ir-estcd.
