A body of the unemployed is marching today from Nottingham to London. Serious riots were avoided in Sheffield yes- terday only when mayor' an- nounced that the sum of would be devoted to reluf work.

In Saskatchewan -the post office -department for. the .province is organizing routes from Moose Jaw east. In Reglna a city delivery will bo established'as soon as the popu- lation reaches that I have not yet been able to do so. (Cheers.) "This is not a game of marbles. It is the most serious question that can engage the attention of a serious and business people. Yet the Con- servative representatives in the Hous_' of Commons have spoken night after night during.this campaign and never on any occasion have they taken the people into their confidence as to what''.they proposed to do. Should they be given the confidence of the people. We are bound to assume, as sensible business; men that they 'have not any proposals to make. (Laugh, ter and .applause.) Has'Not a Policy The Conservative candidate' i n constituency no more .knows than- th'e politics he believed in when he a'ccepted the nomination of the Con- servative party. (Laughter.) As sen- sible'arid buiness people, whose vita interests are at stake in the reult of this contest, I submit to you, that .the case, on behalf of Mr. Magrath has not been made out either by him- self or .by his very eloquent friend Mr. -chairman correctec the the one wil answer just as well as the other Havitog read some o Mr. Ames' remarks, I had made up my mind that he had gone- farthe from the truth than was possible to any Bother man.

As has been stated to you to m'gttt, I had the very great hono .of representing this part of th country during two Parliament arts do riot- f as they do the country. Whereever Canada can jo best built up, there Canada shall built it is Southern Albfrta one time or Northern Alberta another time. (Cheers.) The Liberal party is not a party, of sectionalism, but the Conservative party if one is lo judge by the statements of its is the party of sectional- ism. You cannot build up Canada, however, on such a policy. (Cheers.) The Crow's Nest Pass Ry. cost the country and in the present campaign, Mr. Magrath's political allies, are declaring in Eastern Can- ada that the building of the road was a scandal, a steal and a crime. If the Government loses in Eastern Caiiada. it will be because, amongst other things, it entered ou.the policy of developing Southern. Alberta, by the building of the. Crow's Nest Pass Railway. Rochester, Oct. By reason of certain actions having been brought in the Supreme court of this state by members of the order who were affected by the recent increase in the rates of assessment, certain charges were made that the funds of the Independent of Foresters hud not been properly invested by the executive officers.

Belgrade, Servia, Oct. newspaper here publishes what pur- ports to be the text of a secret treaty between Bulgaria and Austria. There are three clauses in this treaty. In the first Austria authorizes Prince Ferdinand to declare the indepen- dence of Bulgaria and promises to maintain the Cobourg dynasty in Bulgaria. The second provides that if complications arise through the announcement of the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovnia, Prince Fer- dinand will take the part of Austria.

UNEARTHED BUNCH OF COUNTERFEITERS terms.

Tho officers also found buried under an old barn on the premises a front plate of the United Empire Bank of Canada note and parts of finished According to the officers the elder Crozier bought the Cataragus farm or other rights have obtained them from the Government and I ask you to judge of th-a Liberal Government, its principle and its party and by what you know of them. Is there any. thing in your knowledge that will bear put in the slightest degree the suggestions of impropriety, which have been placed before you by Mr. Ives. These gentlemen are appear- ing before you and telling you of things that you know a great deal more about than they do. If the p ople have been injured by the pres- ent administration, you are the peo- ple who ought to know and it should not ha necessary fur Mr. Ames to come from Montreal to tell you how iniquiioasly the Liberal Government has dealt with you.

Competition Sold Out Tho people are told, I believe, that not only is the Government building railroads elsewhere, but is giving railroad competition as well, and it is not' giving railroad competition here. There are many who may legi- timately make complaint on this ground, but I do not think a man whose connection in this distirct has always been with the A. R. I., chich recently I am informed has sold out a controlling interest to che C. P. R., and thereby absolutely destroyed whatfved element of com- peitiou there was, is exactly the man to shed tears over it, or to give any satisfactory sympathy. We gave you a railway develop. mont .in accordance with our but that development did not cirry with it railway competition. rail way to be a competing railway inaj-t bsgin where there is competition or end where there is competition. So we have to start with our competing railways from the east as fast as we can, and when we have brought tium into Alberta, you will have Cfntpe- tition. But a railway built TM brrta alone would certainly ot be H competing railway. Yet you are asked to complain brcausc the CJHI- is not' already here. Liberal Government has staked its existence on railway development and competition, and every effort j which has boen put forward by mi-m- b'-rs of the Conservatives, both in Parliament and out of it, has concentrated to prevent that policy Nelson, Oct. 14. Complaints are being received here daily from, a'tl p.irts of the Kootenay constituency of the manner in which the provinci- al voters' lists have been manipulat- ed by the McBride government offi- cials. The last complaint to be re- ceived comes from Revelstoke, where it is alleged that the names of 250 voters have been omitted from ..the list. From the nature of the com- plaints received in Nelson by the Liberal campaign committee) it ig obvious that the Conservative ora- ch's have guilty of gross malpractice in preparing the lists. It is probably too late now to take any steps that will, be 'effective in re- covering the franchise of the peoplr who have thus been struck off the list, as according to the provincial law all protests must be filed within five days of the court of revision which was held the firs' week of Mav last LOAN OFF MARKET Toronto, Oct. to the Bal- kan War scare and its effect upon money markets of the world, the Ontario Government decided not to float the loan until next WOMAN GETS VERDICT Hamilton, Ont., Oct. jury in case of Mrs. Bell, suing the street railway for damages returned an award of for injuries.
