Beal The Local Result WHILE tile country bas Bone ag- ainst tlie party, the Libera'.-j of the Medicine Hai constit- uency have the' satisfaction of know- ing that they have not bs-en defoai-id twice. The election of A. Buch- anan by such a large majority is an emphatic assertion that the people ef this consttaiency wanted reciproc- ity whatever may have been the wish- as of the oth-er parts of Canada. While a large number of polli have lot teen heard Irom, the Herald feels confident that tii'sy will no; change the relative standing of the candi- dates, and W. A. Buchanan will be SI. P.. even though he will have to 1 tit to ihe felt of ths Speaker. Both -Mr. Buchanan and Air. Ma- irarh put up strong fights. Each recognized, as did their respective supporters, that it would be no easy task -to attain a victory over the oth- er. But' reciprocity and won th-3 day, and tire victory stands otu. t'.i one of the redeeming features ot'iEatiing somewhat the defeat of the party and policy in the country. Mr. Magrath and his supporters have satisfaction of knowing that, j while were on the losing side locally, their policy carried in the whole country. Another source of satisfaction for the Literals of this part of Canada i-a the victory achieved in Alberta. Six out of i'even seats, instead of four i ouc Of seven, as they had in the last 1 Parliament, is a satisfactory stand- ing. Or.

Dr. King's victory In Kootenay is probably one of the most notable of the whole campaign. His was an up- hill tigilt from the -start, and the tri- umph is a tribute to the member-el- 'act, and his abls band of supporters. a system whereby unco constructed, will hi imiiiuaiucd in a high stiite of vtfiA'-. eiicy, in pince of bcliiR allowed to raft down, as inevitable wtien- towughipn ;md conn-ties the work under thylr Jurisdiction.

Du- Foot, head of the great iwwdflr boarini; UU ncme, hus rewlvcd upon giving his imtlw B'tate of Delaware ii highway which, when completed, will from one und .of Stale to thv oilier. For years America's millioiiafrev have endowing hospitals and colleses and building rhurches, until theiv is actually an overabundance of all three, so tlie head .of the Llu- pout family very wisely re-solved that he would give bis native Siate some- thing by which the entire popula- tion might .benefit. 'He plans to cor.-itruct a highway two hundred At stated .intervals through.-, out its length will be located experi- mental farms, nil of which will be coL-jlructed and paid for Col. Du- pout. At the niouisnt, engineers are working out the plan, and Ute best j European experts are being employ- ea in the undertaking. .Just what ma- terial will ba utilized on this great highway has not yet Iwen datermlu- ed, .this helttft left in the hands of French e.vperU. i As a memorial to the Dupout fain- fly ii would be hard to conceive a finer piece of public work, nor one which would be of more'lasting ben- efit lo the State as a whote. It is to lw hoped that ere iong Ca- nada, and more particularly Ontario, will reap sonra benefit by seeing these great works undertaken lu the Unit- ed Statei. We few Duponts iq our midst, it is trtia, but the province of Ontario is rich.. Like Pennsylvania it has little or no debt-. It could well afford, with its ever-extending re- sources, to copy the Pennsylvania plan, building broad highways from county seat to county the eittire province is interwoven with Provincial roads. Such to be su'ccwsmr must necessarily be provincial in charact-er. plan muat be -broad in scope aniilcomplete in organization. piecemeal, and then allpwifcg-them to run down, as is now the case, is poor business at- best. The General Election Result RECIPROCITY Is beaten. The returns of the election show that the people of Canada do not want it, and incidentally the Lib- era I party and the government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier so down to detent with it. v.To sav that the result of the election is a'surprise is U) speak with moderation. While Conserva- tives claimed that they would win. It was not generally thought that ihey would. Even the most sanguine Conservative did not make any fore- cast of such a largvi majority. The Liberal party is defeated, but not dishonored. fight, was on one great, clear-cut and the judgment of th-e people lias been ag- ainst i he goveninient. Th-e results rto. not '.iliow that the people had-any- thing against the Laurier government as an administration, bin show jn-src- ]y a strong disapproval of iis pro- legwlation on cne matter of re- ciprocity. It was a great fight ou a great is- sue. The victory is won, and "A'hile the minority cannot agree with the majority, they can gracafuiiy how ifi their will. still .belies that reci- procity would have been in the best Interests of the country from -svery urtandpolnt, and beli'five also that as the proves! greater than any party or any leader, so the country V1H prove greater than the wsne.

Until complete returns in, it is not possible to say wliat ma- jority the Conwrvalives will have in ihe House, but present Indications are that R. L. Borden, premier-elect, can. if he wishes, be independent of his Nationalist allies, even though they contributed so materially to hI-3 victory. It is to be hoped b-e has such a majority, in order that the country may he from the dic- tatorship of Boiirassa.

The matter of reciprocity after a of most earnest consideration and discussion, is settled, for the pre- sent, at teast, and the country will cQDlinne to build up a great nation on the foundations ao well laid by the 'Liberal government during its long of brilliant, and stat-e-aman- like administration.
