His speech may be fully as interest- ing as his famous five-hour address 01. last year, and may be as fall of sen- sation. Brought Gushing Back It was known by several that Mr. Cornwall intended an attack upon Mr. Gushing in his Waterways speech, but perhaps few noticed at the time, Mr Cushing's quiet exit from the house member for Peace River drew atten- tion to the vacant seat later in his address. When afterwards Mr. Corn wall ask-ed for Cushing's presence in than one million, but of recent.years he had -been dependent on friends. Occasionally he had appeared in music hall exhibitions. Mace was born at .Beeston, in Norfolk, and in his day was one of the greatest boxers. His first great fight was with Bill Thorpe, whom he beat in 16 rounds. When Tom Sayres retired from the cham- pionship in I860 Mace was regarded as his legitimate successor and was soon challenged fay Tom King. They met in February, 1S62, when after 43 rounds Mace was given the verdict, the- next ten years he was prac-, ticaiiv invincible.

The thought had been simmering through his mind that the change from council should not only be one in nam.e.thit one in essence.
