A BIG CROWD AT 4 A i iviAuKA i n OLD MAN IS DEAD. Edmonton, Oct. .Burns, of Strathcoria, who _ was injured by an unknown assailant last Monday night, died this evening. An inquest will be. held .tomorrow. No irrests have been made yet, but the police believe .they are on the track of the murderer. Quebec, Oat. A careful survey of the situation ia'the province, on personal investigation and on conversations'-with men active in the contest, leads to the .belief that the Opposition' forces' are making: no headway whatever against, the Gov- ernment in the present campaign.' In theUast House Sir Wilfrid Laurier eoVld .rely on ihe. support of 54 out of English-speaking- and n g; JronVLih_e of Quebec. No question of policy has arisen to alijnate the Govern. rments' support, and Sir Wilfrid if anything, more the idol of fits own'people than he has been at any previous period in his long and eventful public career. B.ts are being made by Liberals that the Gov- ernment will increase its Quebec ma- jority present' elections 'to 47. view will be YOUNG GIRL'S SUICIDE. Woodstock, N.B., Oct. day Miss Ida McKinney, aged 24, left home; ostjrisibly for church, buf as the1 day wore on she did not appear, the parents became anxious, and large parties in vain until tonight, when her life- less body was found in thcvriv.T a few miles from home. It is thought that the despondency over ill-health caused her to commit .suicide by drowning. Org anize .a Audience Was Enthusiastic In Reception to the Speakers of the Evening Messrs Magrath, Ives and George realized, for with no leadership and little, or no aggressive newspaper support, the Conservative party is in no-position to rally even the vote which it might otherwise obtain. In Montreal there is but- one journalistic champion (the while, on the .other. _hand, the French-Canadian the English Herald and .Witness, are with Laurier. The Mont- real Star, which lent the aid of its columns, and its money to Mr. TJor- "dMa.atf-'the last has not much, that is good to say of either party rdn the present contest, but t is especially bitter in "its daily rto Spokane, Wash., Oct.' ers in Douglas county, Wash., have., organised f or, a coyote and jack rab- bit drive over the country known as Hell's Half Acre at the mouth" of Corbaley's canyon, to be pulled "off the second week in. November. The committee in charge is composed of A. P. Kiser, M. Clark, and Isaac ranchers mountain, and Percy Schfblej and Oscar Tetherow for the residents of Wenatchee. Coyotes are thick on the mountain, and jack rab- bits' are also numerous. Shotguns will be used solely, the committee decided to bar rifles.' It is expected several hundred men will participate in the drive. That C. A. Magrath, the Conserva-1 tive candidate ior the House of Com-! mond, has a large numb r of, friends and supporters in ihis city was very evident at the meeting held in Oli- ver's Hall last nig'h't. The hall was packed full, even fuller than it had been onjprevious occasions during the campaign. And the tender- ed' the candidate wae such as to be very gratifying to him. The speak- ers of the evening were John George, ex-M.P.P., an old campaigner from Bruce County, W. C. Ives and Mr. Magrath. No invitation was ex- tended to the Opposition-to address the meeting. The -president, of" the Magrath club, W. H. McLelland, occupied the chair and his apt introductions of the speaker? caught the jfatyiy of the crowd. In his opening r.-marks he paid his "compliments to Duncan Marshall-as a prodigy of the Ross try. When a man in the audience asked about Potter ".and the Union Trust funds the speaker said that Fost r was not on that they were judging the honesty of their administration. The party's promise was brok- en as was alao to re- duce taxation. In to a request from th: audience ,thai he should discuss the. revenue, the speaker said that Mr. Marshall's claim that the prosperity and consequent revAte in Canada were due to the preferential tariff was not'weil-'-founded.

He. advocated the plac- iig of the redistribution of seats in the hands of an independent commis- sion. Broken Liberal Pledges Mr. George then proceede'd to dis- cuss the record oi the Liberal party during thi past twelve years, so as to disprove Duncan Marshall's claims that the Government had fulfilled the pledges of its platform of 1893. the Government had not fulfilled it; pledge to destroy the old protective tariff as the rat _> -of taxation on duti- able goods was practically the same as it was before j 896.

"In he said, "the Lib- eral party came to us pledges and they looked good to us. The old Conservative management looked too rotten to be kept v in harge any longer and they ;icked out. 'We. expected the fulfill- ment in 5k entirety of the-Liberal policy. It is not for us now to con- sider the old Conservative'manage- ment for that .was pass.'d upon defin- itely and finally in 189G. But it is for us 'to consider the management of affairs during the past twelve years when the Liberal party lias had con- trol.. If it has been well and impar- tially will be your duty in your -own- interests to return that board of management for another term but if not it is your duty to kick them out as you did the old man- agement twelve years ago." Credit and Blame Placed Duncan Marshall, ho claimed, in taking credit for the prosperity and growth in Canada "for the Liberal Government should claim the ing the Conservative party for. the hard .times previous to 1896 should blame them also for the same condi- tions thatvexisted in every 'other civ- ilized country as well at .'that time. "There has been very little differ- ence in the trad; policy since the Liberals came into he con- tinued, "and I cannot see, although I am willing to admit that they have passed much good legislation, that they have made any legislation to create prosperity." The Conservative Platform The speaker then proceeded to an- swer-Mr. Marshall's statement that the Conservative party had no plat- form'. ''Do you not he asked, "that d.-ceny in 'public life is one of the greatest issues in any campaign? That is one plank-in the .Conserva- tive platfrpm'I .The platform on immi- gration- is for the stopping of the bonusing system and against the bringing of immigrants from uride sirabie 'parts of the "w.orld. Honest expenditure of public money is- an other plank and investigations have proven that has been fraudu lent spending of public money by th Government.
