Con- ;ervative campaign of vilification and vituperation, unexampled in its men- dacity and rancor, has fail.'d, and Canada, with enthusiastic voice, has called upon Laurier to finish his work. He goes back to Parliament with a majority of at least fifty in the Commons, and this ia almost cer- tain to, be increased by later and corrected returns, aa w.-ll as by the .results of -deferred elections.

Perhaps the most noteworthy f a- ture of the result was the, way in which Ontario showed, its apprecia- tion of Sir Wilfrid's presentation of the Government's case, and refused to respond to the appeal of Roblin and the other slanderers.

H. Intyro, M.P. for South Perth, Out. Up to four o'clock this afternoon the returns show that .the Conservative candidate, C. A. Magrath, is elect.d for this constituency. The polls so far heard from, chiefly in the south- western part of tho riding, gave him a lead of about 160 over Wt C. Simmons, the Liberal candidate. It will be almost im- possible for the outlying divisions to give Mr. Simmons majorities sufficient to overcome this lead. The results w.-re not without their aurprisea. Lethbridge city gave a majority of only 119 for Mr. Magrath which is.below what the Liberals con- cedtd and much below the majority .'xpected by the Conservatives. If Lethbridge was a surprise. Medicine Hat was a worse one on the other side. The Liberals expected to keep Mr. Mflgrath's majority there below on: hundred and the majority of 202 was a severe blow to their hopei of success. It remained for Taber, to provide the biggest sur- prise of Even the Conservatives conced.d a Liberal majority of forty while the Liberals expf-cted to nearly double that number. For some inex- plicable reason all calculatioa1? were upset, and Magrath got 56. The vote along the Cardstori. lin? and in that district was disappoint- STRATHCOS A McTatyre, Lib. Lib., elect d.

Conservatives were betting that-Raymond and Stir- ing would give them substantial ma- jorities. .The former, however, gave a record Liberal majority of 61, while] Stirling came ahort by giving only 2. The usual Liberal votj in Cardston and in the surrounding towns was much reduced while the Conserva- tive vote in Mountain View was much larger than usual. In the north the C.P.R. irrigation engineers used thoir influence with their men for Mr. Magrath, and Glei- chen consequently gave a majority of 10 to the Conservative candidate. Th re are about 15 or 10 polls atill to hear from, Mr. Magrath's ma- jority may be cut down to between 75 100. Many reports of the liberal ex- penditure of mooey and disthbvtioa of boose on behalf of the Conserve- live candidate, arc- coming into the Lib ral headquarters. was no demonstration .in town. Although the Conservatives were confident of success, they did not risk a demonstration.
