Two little girls bore, upon the stage two botuiuets of flowers which they presented to Premier .McBride, who, in opening his address, the last on the programme, by gallantly com- plimenting the many ladies who had feigned to grace the occasion by .heir proE'Snt'a, and took occasion to thank the two .little girl-3 for HO mdsonre a presentation. .Mayor R least] el i occupied the chair and was appreciably brief In his in- troductory remarks, confining him-. self to a few hit morons remarks as he named t.he three distinguished speakers who were to address tlie larsto audience. The Local Member Hon. R.

This was a stunner to the audience, even the most staid and rock-bound Tory hold- ing his breath, what the next 'break would be.

It was about this time In the pro- ceedings last night that trouble broke loose in th-5 audience and con- tinued until th-e speaker bad to ap- peal to the. chairman, who in turn called for a policeman to quiet the :iis turner.
