This week's Issue of the Herald is the I ant to lie "set up" by Geo. A.

U'J 0 The Conservatives should gain In (the Maritime Provinces. Prince Kd-ward Island in constitutionally In Opposition, and at present seem* particularly dissatisfied. New Brunswick seems turning against the Oov. eminent and may change its stand  ing of seven Lil>eralft to Six Conservatives into seven lo six, or even eight to five the other way. In Nova Scotia tho Conservatives obviously cannot lose anything and by the law of probabilities should gain nt least u couple of scats. It seems fair to place the next division of the Marl  time Provinces at from 30 to 33 Lib. I^rals and from twelve to fifteen Conservatives. If the election results in no change whatever in Quebec. Sir Wilfrid I�aur-Jer will come to tho Ottawa river with from 75 to 78 out of the hundred. If tlie Conservatives win fifteen seats in Quebec his proportion might bo cut down to 70. t'nless all signs fail, the Ontario l.llierulH are going to get a boating even worse than that of 1004. Suppose that the Conservative majority |s 20-that the score stands 58 to 3S. Here we are up to the Wewwlth a conjectural score of something wry like 110 to 70 in favor of the Lib-era Is. If tho Conservative* do well enough ea�t of the Ottawa to hold Sir Wilfrid down to 70, and carry Ontario by 20, the figures would lie cut down to about 100 Liberals and 80 Conservatives. Of the thirty priilHe seats, ten are wholly new, and many more espec  iully the northernmost, are under Government influence. Under the circumstances the Conservatives will muke remarkable gains if they divide tho representation evenly. British Coluinlria has two seats, to which tho Yukon must be addod, which aim ply fall to tho winner. The Conser vativo cause is looking up in tho mountains, and tho party is hopeful; we may give it the benefit of tho guess, and suppose- that throe of the five contestable seats turn Conserve, the. This means that the thirty oight Weatorn Boats will divide. Libera) twenty, Conservative eighteen Or a total estimate of Liberals, from 190 to 130; Conservatives from 04 to 104, or a Liberal ma Jorlly of from 10 to 35. A Liberal victory with a serious scaling down of the majority. This is. of course, the roughest poHtlhle estimate. Putting it in an other way, Mr. Borden needs 11H votes to win. ir Sir Wilfrid Laurlor comes to the Ottawa with 75 votes Mr. Borden must win 88 votes out of the remaining 124. If the Conservatives hold the Liberals down to 70, thoy frtill must win 80 seats in Ontario and the West. Keversing It A home of their own-that Is tho dream and desire of the major portion.
