Whether Sir Wilfrid Laurier goes to the country this fall or delays his appeal for another year, he will not have sitting behind him iu his next Commons the strapping member from the Kootenays whom even casual ac- quaintancps IBfil as "Big Bill." Mr. Galliher, is of poli- tics. Had he chosen to again seek the suffrages of his people, there would have been no doubt of the re- suits, for hp is rich in human quali- ities which are the keys to men's hearts the world over, and nowhere more readily than among the rough miners who form a large portion of lis constituents. Nature wa> unusually kind to Mr. Galliher, for in addition to endowing lim with a b'g heart, it encased said icart in a massive frame and topped t with a head and face which would command attention anywhere. He was not only hig and good to look on aut he was an athlete of considerable renown, befor-> he dropped outdoor i sport for the more engrossing, and also more exacting game of politics. Of his prowess in the ring" arid on the green many good stories are told but we are hot aware that the fol- lowing has'evi-r before been publish- ed. Mr..Galliher hailed originally from the county of Bruce, where twenty years ago the annual Caledonian games in tho villages of Lucfcnow, Paisley, Tiverton, etc..-were the local Olympics, for which every son of the old country could develop athlet- ic assiduously trained. Mr. Galliher was no exception to the rule and local pride in his achievements suffered no eclipse because of his non-Scottish cognomen.

A lengthy session held in the office of Wallace Slrml- ton, who is one of the Di- rectors. The representation from tlve surrounding country was good. As the grounds prepared .for the Park were so badly damaged by the floods and as the bridge could not be used aa formerly to reach them, the question of a suitable place was a knotty one. However it WAS thought best to concentrate the exhibits, at one point in all classes so fur us possible. ft was iinally decided to engage the- 0. K. Barn from Mr. Vaughan as the floor or skating rink would give ample space for the small ex- hibits while the lower storey would accommodate the horses, and the yards the cattle. The poultry too can be well look- ed after in the west side of the car- riage shed. This arrangement will also leave the Assembly Hall to the Fair's man agcment for a good ball on the ening of the 2-ltK and the concert on the 25th, without disturbing the exhibits.
