"We enter the approaching federal election with confidence and enthus- was the inspiring declaration of President- Mowat, at the outset of proceedings and the same spirit of healthy optimism was reflected in an encouraging message from the min- ister of railways who unfortunately was unable through indisposition to take part in the meeting and in all the speeches that were made in the course of the three hour's session. "The outlook is most encouraging" wrote Hon. Mr. Graham, "and every indication points to un increase rather than a decrease in the strength of Liberalism. "Let every man do his duty and the victory is assured." There were rumors on the street this niornifi17 o? the Ix'iiig set- tled but there has been no confirm- ation from any source.

Montreal, Sept. was brought out at today's session of the marine investigation beyond the [act that the book keeping methods of Mr. Mcrwin were followed by at least one official of the department, Mr. U. P. Boucher, the Montreal agent of the department of Marine and Fisheries who testified that it was his custom to mix departmental matter with his own personal assets at the bank. Mr. Watson protested that this was a loose way of doing business and the witness replied that it did not seem so to him, al- though if he had expected the pres- ent investigation he would have more regular methods. Mr. Boucher had also contracted that habit of not keeping books and throwing away his bank book stubs. He however, was all right, and h.id no hesitation in authorizing the bank to supply Judge Cassols with a copy of his bank account. Mr. Mecwin was also on the stand for a short time and stated that he had not received any response to his telegraphic invitation to Mr. Brooks of New York to come here and testi- fy as to the Brooks firm's dealings Another Bridge On the CJPJL Main Line Port Arthur, Ont..

The largest shipment of grain ever made was from Indian Head, and that was in one season. But in In- dian Head there are 12 elevators. In Claresholm there are but three eleva- tors. You can understand what a Hfference that means. With bushels the Claresholm elevators are full. In Indian Head the eTevators will take bushels. The trou- ble in Claresholm is that there is not enough elevator accommodation. Until there is better elevator accom- modation I cannot understand how they ran expect to be free from car at certain periods of ihe Pincher Creek and a team of Indians! from the Poigan Reserve.
