Although this has been the big- gest question brought before the peo- ple of Canada, and has been tbe most exciting electoral contest for half a. century, doubtless everybody is glad it Is over. Even excitement gets monot- onous, and for nearly a year tbe peo- ple of Canada have been exercising The Fight is Over Coming as it did, right after his toui Con-Jervative this contest found th leader in good fighting their minds over tbe question of reci- procity more tban over anything else. T.his has been a unique election. There was really one question before the people. The government negotiat- ed a reciprocity agreement, but the op- position refused to allow the Parlia- ment to adopt it, although the large j question that is likely to create div- majority of the members were in fav- and between th-s or of it. The only thing left for the i different peoples of this country is government to do was to refer .fae regretted. The method of at- matter to ibe final judges, the elect-j tack, no doubt, turned many Conser- shape, even though his Western trip was not exceedingly encouraging. As a speaker, Mr. Bord-en showed a great improvement, the results will show whether or not he has improv- ed as a leader and general. A very disagreeable feature of the campaign was the racial element that forced into it by the Conserva- tive party In the English provinces by loyalty cry and the bugaboo oC an- nexation as a result of reciprocity, On the other hand, their allies in Quebec, led by Bourassa, wag-ad an anti-British campaign in order to de- feat Lmirier in his own province. Any ors of Canada, for a decision. The peo- ple took up the Issue, and have divid- ed themselves, not so much along party lines, but rather for or against reciprocity. In nearly every constit- uency the personality of the candi- dates was teft out of consideration al- together, many meetings'having been held where theJE names were not. mentioned. The whole question ivas reciprocity. In this respect the campaign, all will admit, has been pleasantly unique. Th-a contest bw not been without notable features, some agreeably, some otherwise. Many will regard the remarkable campaign put up by Kir Wilfrid Laurter as most note- worthy feature of the campaign. Nearlng his seventieth year, having borne the 'burden of the premiership of Canada for fifteen years, and the leadership of his party for five more, Sir Wilfrid, whose friftiid-3 can jiratly call him "Canada's Grand Old bag carried on a fight, that many a younger and more robust political warrior would have failed to accom- plish. His energy and -endurance have been remarkable, hie reasoning most convincing, and his eloquence Inspiring. He covered the whole country east of Ihe Grviat Lakes, Speaking many times each flay for nearly weeks. Rarely did Ire show fiigfis of weariness, and never did the redoubtable fighting spirit waver. Scarcely less strenuous lias been the campaign carried on by H. Borden, the leader of the Opposition. vatires from their party, as they con- sidered it an admission of a paucity of arguments along economic lines, while many more doubtless regretted the plan of attack, but stayed with their party. For the first tim-e in the history of Canada since Confederation, has there .been a regular line-up of the moneyed interests of tho country ag- ainst the demands made -by a very large section of the community and granted by a government. The fight was one of the cla-ss'es against the masses, and it remains to be seen tonight whether the great voting pub- lic have exercised tfoslr independ- ence of thought sufficiently to 'break away from the domination of the "interests" in order to get what clearly is in their best intercuts. Locally the campaign has bcsn a clean, stand-up fight. It has not been a question ns between Mr. Ma- grath and Mr. Buchanan, except as these gentlemen represented the two sides, of the great issue. iW candi- dates are both estimable gentlemen, commanding the respect of whole community. Mr. Magrath has had a fair fight waged against his policy, as has also Mr. Buchanan, except from one source, which shall lw name- less, because yo insignificant. The fight is over, and only the an- nouncement of the results and the cheering remain to 'bring to a conclu- sion the. .most notable political con- teat evtir conducted in the Dominion of Canada. Now, let's talk about ttoe weather and the crops for a change. To be or not to That's question uppermost In the minds of about four hundred and fifty can- Doth Magrath nnd Buchanan put up a good enough campaign to win, but thoy both' can't. The fight is over.

Slnglt Tix. In Seattle Groat Falls Trlbinw.) Seattle is about to submit to the rotors of that city the question of ap- plying the single tax system of rnls- ng revenue. The Fusel Sound city is mo ml in this matter by tho ex- I.vrience of Its neighboring Canadian city. Vancouver, whoro all taxevi for municipal are raised by a tax on land alone. The present system 'n Vancouver has been in operation for a Httle more than n year, although tho community has been educating itself up to this method of obtaining revenue since It began to with single tax in a moderate way. The fiiyt step was to exempt from taxa- tion 2f> per cent, of the vatu-a of Im- provements. This was done without creating disturbance or deficit, and two years later 50 per cent, of the value of improvements was exempted, ivitti similar satisfactory results. The great step of all came later, when improvements were that over, of course. You oiui't her for that. Oo liuUi Would Catch It Lattr An.
