Cer- tain to be increased by later and corrected returns, as as by the results of deferred elections. The only Cabinet Minister defeated was Hon. Wm. Templeman. The other Ministers returned by de- cisive majorities. Leading Tories TrouncexJ. Many of the most prominent Con- servatives went down to defeat, among them W. H. Bennett, of East Sim. coe; G. W. Powler, A. A. Lefurgey, and W. F. Cockshutt, of Brantford. R. L. Bord n was rle-ctcd in both Hali- fax and Carlet-on, Sir Wilfrid Laurier in both Ottawa and Quebec East. In the latter he pnt on his old-time four- figure majority.

Sifton Won. Hon. Clifford Sifton was elected in Brandon after a campaign in which. his opponents resorted to every elected. are deferred dee, every trick, every expedient, 'air aiid unfair, to beat him. In Saskatchewan the Liberals made most a clean eweep, Qti'Appell returning a-.Conservative, and in Albc-rta, the probable outcome will be the election of four Liberals and throe Conservativ s. In British Columbia, where local issues decide most contests, one Lib- and thri-e Conservatives are ap- contests in this province, besides the one in the Yukon. Prince Edward Island retxims two Liberals and two Conservatives. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick return ?d twelve and eleven Liberals respectively, against six and two Op- positionists. This is a Liberal fall- ing off of Nova Scotia and an im- provement in New Brunswick. The Maritime Provinces Ministers all had large majorities. Quebec remains faithful in its al- legiance, sending to the support of Sir Wilfrid. 52 out of 65 members, a delegation which will be increased to 54 when the deferred elections are held. Good Old Ontario. Perhaps the most noteworthy fea- ture of the result was the way in which Ontario showed ita apprecia- tion of Sir Wilfrid's presentation of the Government's case, and refused to renpond to the appeal of Roblia and the other slacdorers. The great English-speaking province of the Dominion no fewer leaders are beaten. Even East To- ronto has turned down A. E. Kemp in favor of an Independent. Sir Wilfrid Happy. Quebec. Oct. Wilfrid Laur- ier, seen at the Chateau, Frontenae where be received the results in his rooms, said he was delighted with the result. He was bubbling over with good humor, and was particular- ly inter .-sted in the returns from Ontario, .which seemed to give him great pleasure.

Nourse, Manager (From Tuesday's Daily.- 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- i western part of the riding, gave him a lead of about 160 j over W, C. Simmons, the Liberal candidate. It will be almost im- possible for the outlying divisions, TXJ give Mr. Simmons majorities sufficient to overcome this load. Th.- results were not without, their surprises. Lethbridge city gave a majority of only 119 for Mr. Magrath which is below what the Liberals con- ceded and much below the majority expected by the Conservatives. If Lethbridge was a surprise. Medicine Hat was a worse one on the other side. The Liberals expected to keep Mr. Magrath's majority there below on hundred and the majority of was a severe blow to their hopes of success. It remained for Tabor, however, to provide the biggest sur- prise of al. Even the Conservatives conoid d a Liberal majority of forty while the Liberals expected to nearly double that number. For some inex- plicable reason all calculations were upset, and Magrath got 56. The vote along the Cardston and in that district was a disappoint- ment to both parties. Conservatives were betting that Raymond and Stir- ing would give them substantial ma- jorities. The former, however, gave ;i record Liberal majority of 61. while Stirling came short by giving only The Liberal vor in Cardston and in the surrounding towu0 much reduced while the Conserva- tive vote in Mountain View was much larger than usual. 15 29 CHAS.
