Exactly why Conservatives should
mix In this family quarrel between
Laurier and Bourassa lum not been
explained. Tlie disclosures wnich
came out during the debute upon the

have nothing to boast of over the
Bourassa wing on the score of loyalty. Mr. Bordon stated the pos t on
of bis party upon the naval question
in terms clear and unmistakable.
The Borden Government will be prepared to help the Empire in any
emergency and will rive the people a

Victoria, Jan. 1..— One half of the
Liberal party in the legislature went
over   to  the  government today  when
I John Jardlne imid a glowing tribute
in the Increased prosperity of the
province nnd  declared  that    lt    was
j tine to the policy of thu government
which had practically wiped out the
|l_iberal party. Ho disagreed entirely with the position of the 1 iberal
leader and believed that the work-
Ingnutn might look to the Conservative government for the 'iieasurca the
worklngman requires. After the last
session of the house when he bad
voted in favor of the railway contract he hnd met the Liberal executive of his constituency and had told
I hem that if they disapproved of hia
supporting the government's railway
policy he would resign. Not a man
es [tressed  disapproval.
Mr. Jardlno proceeded to defend
nnd approve of other government
acts opposed hy H. C. Brewster.
The idea of a university commission
originated in the unanimous demand
of a representative public meeting In
Victoria. It had lost thc university, hut accepted the decision of the

The Conservatives meet the new
year with hope and confidence. Not
for years has the Opposition al  Ot*
taws, been so well organised anil so
free from personal or factional
strife. There la a feeling ol coming
victory in the air which is unmistak
able. In the old days. Room Le,
where the Liberal members congrega
ted, was a busy place, always crow '
ed nnd often resounding with merriment and good cheer, The Room
assigned to the Conservatives on the
other hand was apt lu those dnys to
be sombre and not frequented by
many visitors. Now all Is changed;
the present Conservative mem i6i
Room s convenient and many peo
pie manage to find it. It Ib always
crowded and everybody seems to be
in high .pints. When the members
ol an evening are waiting for the
division bell there is much singln
laughing and joking while Room LG
looks like a enamel house — gloomy
and deserted. tt ■* so in the Chamber of the House itself. It is the
Conservatives who now are always
in good spirits. The Government
supporters do not spend much Urns
in the House and have no spirits for
badinage ur repartee. "The floaters" — people who are much in evidence at Ottawa are always anxious
to he hand in glove with the powers
that be—are beginning to take notice. Mra. R. L. Borden's reception
at the opening of the session drew a
crowd of rising sun worshippers almost without precedent. Men are
inveighing loudly against thu corruption of the Laurier Government
in the streets of Ottawa today who
apparently have been blind, deaf and
dumb for the past fourteen years.
When the news came from Drummond
and Arthabaska many a mask was
thrown aside and contractors and
others began to recall that they had
always been Conservatives. There
have heen more conversions here during the past three months than at
any time since 1896.

The Government,  nover strong,    U
now  literally an     one man government,     Mr,     Fielding's enforced absence lias left Sir   Wilfrid     Laurier
without a single lieutenant who  can
be trusted to lead the House.       Mr.
Pugsley  led  the     House  once    when
the     Government   tried      to     force
through     the St.     Lawrence Power
BUI.     His efforts     on that occasion
will not lead him to make a   second
attempt.     Hir Frederick Borden, Hon
Frank Oliver, Hon.     Mr. Templeman
and other ministers refrain from taking any part in the business   of   the
House unless    called  upon to defend
their  respective departments.      Hon.
Mackenzie     King,    tbc   premier     in
petto, Ib   not     aspiring just yet    to
leadership,  his experiences with    the
Home have not been pleasant.      An
affable gentleman of good  parts,    he
does not seem destined  to be a successful   parliamentarian.      He    talks j
over-long to begin with and he talkB j
to the House as a college    professor |
might talk to a class having thought j
it all out and proved it according to i
some book.       He  is     shocked     and |
pained    beyond   measure     when    his j
fellow     members    say  "Oh     shaw!" i
There is nothing in the text book to '
shnw what is to be   done when    the
Class  refuses  to  be  convinced.      The
only likely man in     the Cabinet to- !
day  is Hon.  Oeorge  p.  Oraham  win.
is stronger on  the stump than  be Is
in  the House,     The situation of the
Government is     in striking contrast
to tbe situation of     the Opposition
which  includes two dozen  men  which
could be mentioned     offhand capable
of leading either the Government 'tithe Opposition for a week nr n month ■■
if called upon to do io by Mr. It. I..
Borden,     une can     hardly  Imagine
how the biisines.s of thfl Houae could
be transacted by     the present Government   if  Hir   Wilfrid   Laurier   were
prevented   from   being  in     his   scat
every    day and nearly     every   hour
during  the session.
