cut   down   their  advertising  and   the
layman stops his subscription or forgets to  i ay  his dues.    Consequently
the news man lessens the size ot his

The once great Liberal party has

tmplete destruction, Since
the close of the session, ■*, session
which brought the very name of Lib
eralism into disrepute, there have
been numerous evidences of the hope

finds itself.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has spent the
whole summer so far in pessoual
missionary work in Montreal and Toronto, vainly seeking by explanations
promises aud persuasiou to get the
party together and to satisfy them
that a continuance ot his leader.h
does    not         _
wreek in tb ■ future. The tragic
part of ihe situation is to be found
in the fact that Sir W.Urid Laurier
iscompelled to do this sort of work

lis.i' gone and recent happenings
would indicate that tins is the view
o. tht- moie prominent men iu the
Liberal party,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier went wrong on
thete two great questions, the question ot reciprocity and the question
ol naval aid, because in the nrst iti
stance ho blundered into an a_reo
■neat which the man on the street
-wis qulcx io understand in its true
and dangerous Blgnlfloanco. 'ihit h_
could make tins blunder was in Itself fatal to further successful! leadership. That hu remained in the
leadership at all, having so blundered, was due to the fact that there
•vas no one to succeed him.
The Naval Aid issue gave Blr Wilfrid Lattriei thc great chance of his
hie. a chance to rehabilitate himself
with the people of Cnnartn to some
extent at least, a chance to prove
