Trains Laurier the Leader WIL.rRID LAUBIBR'S an- nouneenrent -that he will still lead the Llba-ral party is read 1 with much satisfaction hot only 'by the parti. Silt, by the country nnd Is a figure that ihe -.public life of this country can ill nl- ford to at the present time. This Is more especially true in view ot lira fact that Ma lieutenants who under- toolrtne toadership of the party in tire HOUM during absence now -WBODf when the par- liimenUry roll Is called. After the party has Soon' so loni in power, it will some time for it to adjust itself -to its new position in opposi- tion. The oposition is strong, both iu members and ability, and when it is marshalled under tire skilful lead- ership of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who the opposition for several years be fore becoming premier, it will b able to .rentier excellent service ti the country from the left of the Speal er. All- that is. required is a goor leader.- and Sir Wilfrid's determinn tion to stay at tire head of the parti is a guarantee' that the 'party will hi well led and the country well served OUR POINT OF VIEW Watch Buchanan's majority crow an the returns keep coming in. "Dirk" McLJrttle promised Borden solid seven, and delivered them. Hor- de n should give McBrldu a seat in his Cabinet us a reward. "Boli" Rogers promised to sweep .Manitoba for Uordeu, but failed to de- ir the goods. H'a lost H couple of seats, instead. No Cabinet position for "Bob." Th-e two ContfirvRtlve Alberta and Saskatchewan are. .C. V H. That looks good to tin farnmni of perhaps. The Western tannere showed they wanted reciprocity the} iisked for it. Ot the twenty-sly urn constituencies, more or rural they elected their men in nineteen. If (lie Eastern farmei-3 had done HB well, there would been a vastly different election told. Boost for the Congress HAVING settled their political dif- tte people of Leth- bridge mu-st. set th-cmselvas with determination to carry to a suc- cessful Usue-their campaign to land1 .the great International Dry Farming .Congress and Exposition for next year. As has already- been pointed out frequently, the holding of this great agricltural event in Lethtirldgfl will mean much to the city, the dis- trict, the province and the "country. TIiG Board of has been very 'active already, and has made a strong "bid for it. It now remains for the "Board to carry on its good work, and '.for the peopta oi this city, district 'and province to back them up, with .all their power. Promisei of finan- cial aBlatance to aid the project have been given by the city, the Provincial p government, the B. C. goverwnent, 'and the C. P. R. Other great bodies 'and corporations will probably aJao assistance that will enable the delegation that goes to Colorado Spring! next month to guarantee tha th'a financial obligaiiona will be met. It now remains for a strong, in flu ential delegation to go to thte year's Congress and back up thtt city's j claims for it next year. Splendid ar rangemonts have been made to the .party there, nnd the accommoda Uon should 'be by the large numbers going to booet for Leth bridge and Canada. Full particulars as to the trip can be secured from the Board of Trade, and everyone who possibly can do ao should go. .Every town and province in the should join in sending delegate's. The Al- berta government already has en- tered heartily into the matter, and is lending every assistance in the way of sending exhibits and and in arranging for the ipccial train. Let everybody with the interests of agri- culture in the Canadian West fall into line and .help boost. WHATEVER it may have to Canada a-s a nation, reci- procity. will prove "the part- I tec of the Liberal party. fft a.ffPMt teal more to tncnafvrred t to hto from power .-to oppwtttati. It The New Liberal Party and the of more l along years Oftven yeara that he I hM bra premier, Wilfrid latir- ter tod party along Huec of Hta wu to MafclHtv 4f foverpment, Relieving 1 thit work of lAatoiatration ww at that ot national Uife -even BOW knportont than latlon thai wovU the nation 1 from the well -pathi. Reci- procity wu flwt great step made by the party that cotM be considered any way radical. It at oncft a utrik-e at trust monoiwry, high coit of living, nnd restriction of trade. H was a measure designed to relieve the burden of at the ex- r.-anse of "the clnsRes. And right here cams the cleavage that marks the pirtlng of the. ways. Within the liberal party were many men of great who had In- come wealthy through tha ment's -toleration of the system of high protection. They were in the great trusts and mergers thit protection had created and fostered. Uelng men of influonc'd, thcEn finan- cial princes had a strong influence on the of tho party, and on tha policy of the government. Bui Just as soon Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Ilia government refused, longer to be Influenced 'by theae reactionary Lib- erals, who were in reality Conserve- so aoon did thiese men foreake the party and oppose govern- ment. The liberal IB well rid of men. They hara hampered a government- thA't would have legi-3- much for the benefit of the com- mon H not been for thvir restraining influence. Now that the party ii rid of them, it can become the people's party more than ever. It went fighting for of people. The clssa the veiled have proved too vtrong for. rlirm time. The reciprocity forraeil a new alignment of part tea. The conserva- tive element of Liberal party has gone to the Conservative party, and thfl progressive eienrent of the Conser- vative party haa joined the Liberals. The fight from now on is between the, ulaiBei, as by the Conser- vative party, and the masses, (is re- by the-Liberal party. The fight in Canada from this time forth ia' the same fight that and IB iUll waged in Britain. The raneei have been defeated this time, as they were for a while in YJritaln through allowing themselves largely to bej dominated and influenced by the clashes and the interent-j. Bui in Canada, in Britain, the ma a res will come to realize the position in which they hate placet! themselves, and will rtie in their might and take control for themflciveg. By adopting a more radical policy, ay fighting the great financial Inter- eits that prey upon the people and >y devoting Itsrlf solely to tbe prob- lemi that grent maas of ha pwaiv, the 'Liberal party will ag- ain come to power and a greater to the country than Aver it hat proved In the pant. The .time of compromise is pact, and tbv, ffght for the people against domination of protected Intercuts la OD. .As an tbe Conservative party IB In office juat to long will Intereali In power, and ntlo Canada for ftrah- own benefit. Dur- ing (hat time, whether It he long or short, the Liberal party must be in opposition as a strong radical party. Thu parties at last have coins to fhclr relative atiindlng as regnnli pol- icl-es, tV.-.! Congervatlraa 'being truly and the truly llbenf. HernrtCor their policies will widely differ, and no man wfll be ably to say there. Is no difference in the psrfiet. On the Remit (Rcgiua Leader. 1 The electors of Canada have spok- en, and the Laurier administration, which for fifteen years has given ho Dominion the beat and most pro- gessive government tile country has ever enjoyed, has been overwhelm in g- y defeated. As a Liberal paper, supporting; the 'olicy of freer trade, The Lead-ar na- turally regrets the verdict- reached majority of the electors. Fur- nore, we 'believe they will re- gret it in clue course. But. we do not regret that th-a Laurier Government made lower tariffs (aml reciprocity -heir policy. If ths 'pariy had to go down id defeat. The Leader rejoices hut it did so standing; steadfast to a principle and is overthrown on i clear-cut is-iue. -N'or do propose to whimper ami whine. u-evur had any respect Tor tli-e Conservatives, who, v.-hen siif- 'ering; defeat, always charged tlvair opponents with having won h rough corruption. are tie fear- ed, and will try to take our medicine lik's courageous men who fought :i good battle and lost. go down to defeat, but not to dishonor. At the same lime it cannot 'be de- nied that the bulging war chests of the big iiUetfesis have had something co do with the result. On no othsr grounds can the slaughter ot -so many cabinet ministers be accounted for. A dead set was made against -them, and, in the majority of cases, success- fully so. while this fact may noon tint for the re-suit in sonie constituencies, it must be frankly admitted that tlifcve exists a strong sentiment through- out Eastern Canada against any fur- ther tariff reductions; and especially against reciprocity with tlw United Sites. No doubt the so-called loyalty campaign, and the us-a of the annexa- tion cry stampeded niany Whatever aroused tire sentiment, it certainly was effective. .Mr. Borden having won, The Lead- er Is glad that his victory decis- ive enough to g'ive him a good work- _ng majority. Whatever political pariy directs -the destinies of Canada, It is important, for tlra best inter- ests of the that it should have a fair majority so as to guarnn- f airly strong administration, and the carrying on of the affairs of government without the embarrass- ment always attended upon a govern- ment lacking sufficient support in the Commons to make it courageous, progressive and aggressive. Especially are ws pleased that in the present instance Mr. Borden should not have won iby a -bare ma- orlty of seats. If present reports are confirmed, be will not be in the position of having to rely on the sup- port of Bourassa Nationalists. the result been closer, Mr. Bor- den wounld have been placed in a ary precarious position. From a par- izan Liberals might, have gleaned some; satisfaction from such an event, as his alliance with-the an- i-Briti-ah party will always remain a dot upon his escutcheon. But from patriotic Canadian and British tandpoint. Liberals will rejoic-a that hat Mr. Borden has a sufficiently jtrong following to be able to st-aer a clear course without having to place eliance upon his Nationalist allies, rhia'te wall, not only for Mr. Bor- Jen and the ConKcrvativ-a party, but or Canada, and the Empire.

"But you see tbay had to give him chloroform to get tnat.'' Once Miss she's twenty-five today? I guess it would surprise her if 1 should tell her 1 was the same ugtt.
