Prouse, of In- gersoll, Ont., arrived in the city lastj night, and Avill make their home her.-1. Mr. Prouse is a 'brother of the Misses Florence and Edith Prouse, of this city. A meeting of the Quarterly Official Board of Wesley church is called for tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at eight o'clock to consider the proposition 4of the young men for the use of men's parlors and recreation room for the Avinter. W. F. Tate has sold out his jfAvel- ry business to RaAvorth Brothers. The Herald is to see Mr. Tate leave toAvn for many reasons, the principal one of which is that Cranbrook -neA-er had a Her- ald. case the seeker ,for inform- ation should have no difficulty in dis- cerning -that the Opposition laid a formal undertook to it and did prove it. Again in September, 1891, Mr. Lis- ter, M. P., rose in his place and pre- ferred a formal charge beginning-...

"During the whole period covered by the said contract, the Hon. John G-. Haggart, now Postmaster-Gener- al and a member of Majesty's Privy for Canada, was a member of the House of Commons for the south riding of Lanark and still is such member. "That the John G.Haggart became and Avas beneficially inter- ested in. the profits of said contract which accrued to the share thereof standing in the name of the said Peter McLaren, and has received large sums out of the said profits and has otherwise derived direct and substantial pecuniary benefits therefrom."

It was while visiting his relatives that the noteworthy Eucharistic conference. was held in London. "The whole idea of; that procession; which stirred London so, is a and this opinion I heard ex- pressed in Ireland and England, re- marked Tathsr Minehan. The leaders of the Church went too far, as they soon discovered. No party, class or religion has any right to use the pub- lic streets to offend another part of the people. This ceremonial pro- cession undoubtedly did so. Though London's seven millions are tolerant and orderly, it is bigots should not be found there. But still I maintain that this procession had no oh; the' streets, which are the possession of-all citizens, one class of- people when all are agreed to it.

From these records the trutlvthirsty contemporary should be able to gather: 1. That the, Liberal Opposition laid several formal charges against as many members of the Government. That the Liberal Opposition in- vestigated the only one of the charges they were allowed to investigate: 3. That after that charge had been investigated the Government violated very rule of Parliamentary procedure, pvf-ry precedent of Parliamentary practice and every obligation of com- at per bushel.

The country is making a great mistake in putting up with this eort of a costly mistake which will- poison its political life for many a year.

ROBLIN'S VOICE GIVES OUT The (Calgary News.) neAvs that Premier Rooliri's has given out will be hailed with joy by the real friends of Mr. R. L. Borden in Ontario. Roblin is a good ad captaridum speaker. He can make his audience It isn't so much in what he gives out as the way in which he says it. He is a platform chest-ex- pander, a of good presence and robust voice. But, unfortunately, Mr. Roblin can talk a great deal faster than he thinks, and very of tin his voice gets ahead of his think-tank. A case in point occurred recently in Toronto, Avhere he undertook to cast the blame of something Avhich he said appeared in the in 1897. onto the pres- ent editor, Mr. J. A. Macdonald. The latter pinned him doAvn on the ques- tion, and noAv Roblin's usefulness is gone and his Aroice gives out. Some days ago the Daily NCAVS ad- ATised Mr. Borden to give Roblin his marching orders for home, because of the stupid blunder made by the lat- ter. The adA-ice may or may not have been taken by the Opposition 1 ,-ader. But in any event Roblin's voice has given out so far as Ontario is con- cerned. He. wants to have a string of mileage between him and J. A. Macdonald. GRAIN STANDARD BOARD. THE O.W. KERR CO.
