Mr Lamarche is one of the mem- oers of the legal staff'of the city of Montreal, a position he has tilled since 1914.

(3 Winning from 40 to 42 seats out of a total of 47 in the legislature, Liberals of British Columbia Thursday succeeded In overthrow- ing the Bowser government.

Six Liberals were elected In Vancouver, with Premier Bowser 170 votes below the lowest Lib It would not be surprising if he would overcome this lead by the military vote. The only seats definitely known to have been won by Conservatives are City, Cowichan, Atlln and Yale Still in doubt are LMIooct, South Oxtnagan, Simllkameen and Slo can, :Seven, Conservatives Vancouver, Sspt. .-Seven Conservatives are surely elected SI atford m SlmlliiaTieen 99 majority; Jones, South Okana ,oan, 102 majority, and Hayward, Foster, Long, Ross and Lucas Burrow, the Liberal, has defeat- ed MacKen in Chilliwack with 813 against.618 votes, a majority of 195.

Bowser was as poor a prophet as ho was a politician. William Sloan, who h-tl an easy win in Nanaimo, like Ralph Smith, elected in Vancouver, formerly sat in the Do- minion House. Day before yesterday, the Liberals had two seats in the B. C. legislature. That gives you "some idea of the tre- mendous turnover. Rose elected in Nelson is the city doctor. That is, he is the leading fam- ily doctor That helped but Bloomer the Independent wno polled 81 elected 'him. There were four Hansons candi- Conservatives and one Liberal. The Liberal was the only one elected: Hon. Price Ellison, who had to quit1 the cabinet because of the exposure of graft ran again as a Tory .candidate, hut the electors bade him good-bye with quite a thump. Dr. King, the Liberal victor over Tom Caven in Cranbrqok, sat in the legislature once before. He is a son of Senator King, of New Brunswick. He is sure to be in the cabinet.

Grand Forks town forked out a ma- ority of 222 for Thompson, Lib., while 3hoenix rose up and handed him a majority ot 225. And he was running igainst a Cabinet minister, top. The two Socialists elected were not jpposed by the Liberals. Every cabinet minister went into the discard.
