H. Malcolm, Liberal, by 189 ma- jority. The election was neces- sitated by the appointment of Hon. C. J. Mickle, the former member, to a judgship.

Nov. referen- dum on local option is apparently de- feated in where 53 of the 60 polls give approximately 53% fo- local option and 4661 against. This majority for prohibition however is offset by legal recjuirements wh-'ch state that to carry a by-law must have 50 per cent, of the total cast for the candidates, including spoiled ballots. As there are some 13.000 voters in the city local option would require votes to carry; therefore tb? by- law lacks about 1200 votes It is probably defeated also throughout I the province.

Kelso Hunter Was Too Generous to Squeal Regina, examination of J. Kelso Hunter, former city clerk, was concluded at this morning's ses- sion of the civic investigation into charges of alleged wrong doing of aldermen in connection with the sale of lots 9 and 10 in block 200'for ware- house purposes. The evidence today was of little account being, chiefly as was that of yesterday confined to the correcting of former statements of witnesses and reiterating the proced- ure by which the spur track reserva- tion was left out of the transfer with- out consent of the council. The wit-, ness took the responsibility for fail- ing to bring the matter before the council and his lawyer suggested that he was a little too generous. The commissioner agreed that the fixing of the responsibility was a matter cf law and Mr. Hunter's opinion so far us that was concerned was Valueless. ;
