Review  of  Brilliant Series of  Meetings   Held  by
Opposition Leader in the Tory Stronghold
(Speeial correspondence).
sir Wilfrid i lens than (My UiouHiiml people, nntl
yet ut not u single meeting dul tlie)
meet with anything like opposition.
On his totir the Liberal chieftain
wus accompanied by a notable group
of liis colleagues, luel tiding tbc I Imi
Sydney Fisher, (leorge I'. Graham,
Charles Murphy und VV. I.. RtacK-en-
zie King, while ut every point visited be wus Joined by Liberal lenders
from nearby points.
Everywhere there was ample evidence, not only that those Liberals
who at the lust election hud been led
astray by appeals to passion and
prejudice now realized their mistake, but that the Conservatives
themselves were becoming restless at
the increasing evidence of incapacity
shown by the Horden government.
More than that on every side
there was evidence of a growing
tide of indignation at tlie campaign
of whispered calumnies ami secret ap
peals to racial und religious prejudices which hud been carried on
throughout Ontario at thp last election!
Coupled With this wns proof of
even greater indignation at the mnn.
tier in which Mr. Borden had misled
the people by his compromise wilh
thc Nationalists whereby immediately after his election be had Included
in his cabinet the very men who bad
been loudest in denouncing any naval
policy. This Sir Wilfrid pointed out
everywhere was a coalition of two
absolutely hostile groups—thc Que
bee Nationalists, utterly opposed to
nny sort of naval programme cither
a centralized imperial policy, or
naval defence ol ('anula's shores
and on the other band the Jingoes
who clamored for direct contribution
io imperial defence.
Everywhere in Ontario this unholj
alliance was denounced and it.s na
turn! effect in preventing thc government from lining anything at all waa
pointed out. Mr. Borden's Inststancc
upon the "speedy" construction ol .1
navy in 1008, while lie was in op
position, was contrasted with his
utter failure to do am thing during
the twelve months in which he has
held olliee as prime minister nml
tbis. notwithstanding, an ample pol
ley had heen outlined and entered np
on hv  tlie outgoing governmenl
Everywhere, also, the question
was asked if there was a Conserve

the Horden cabinet ot tbe Quebec

tario last election, when so maay
voters had been stampeded by ap
peals to passion and prejudice
This series of meetings has bad
two marked effects. Thev have shown
that tbe Liberals, in tbe words ol
Laurier, "begin the fight the daj
after defeat." and the) have llmpl)
astounded the Tories, wbn bad been
arguing thai n<> matter how Liberal

eut leel Ing  throughout the province,
and that when the tunc comes (in
tario will give a ver) different verdict     to   that   of     September 21st.
Throughout, the whole province responded in noble fashion to the
ringing words of I.aurier, "We went
fearlessly nnd courageously to our
duty, without any appeal to passion
or prejudice." Now that the people
have seen the failure Ol the present
government to deal with tbe navy, or
with any other of tbe great questions, after a whole year in office,
they have the remedy in their own
bands and will apply it.
"Heaven is my witness that what
I havp done I did because it was for
the good nf Canada, and my riut-^ns
a loyal Canadian and British sub*
Jeet, nnd I would do it over again."

Ottawa, (let. 1*1
Laurier returned lo tbe capital last
week irom the most remarkable series of triumphs throughout Ontario
that have ever fallen to the lot of
any public man in Canada. During a
tour which lasted almost ten days,
in tbe very heart of the province,
which went so strongly against his
government at the last election, lie
was greeted witli nn enthusiasm and
evident loyalty whicli proclaimed the
fact that the people of Ontario realize the manner in which they were deceived at tbe last election. Throughout the whole tour it was shown in
marked manner that the people of
Ontario were determined to make
amends, not only when the next test
comes at the polls, but now by
showing their affection to the Liberal chief and their loyal confidence in
his policy.
"We are returning to Laurier"
was the slogan everywhere, and on
all sides there was ample evidence
that the people believed wbat their
banners announced—"A return to
Laurier is a return to reason."
And there was no beating about
thetbustl at any of tbe meetings. At
each and every one of them the Liberal chieftain and his colleagues ad
vanccd the main planks of their platform without the slightest hesitation. They were not defending a
tost cause. They were arguing for
coining victory. Nor did Sir Wilfrid hesitate, equally sharply, to
criticise the Conservative position
today and to show up lhe absolute
lack of cohesion in the Borden cabinet which had led to a year of
squabbling and  inaction.
It was a bold experiment. Mils* invasion by a defeated leader of the
very people who bad done mosl to
defeat him. Its very boldness added to Its success, aud the way in
which tbe people showed their appreciation of his declaration, "I
have one abiding desire and that is
for another tussle with the Tories,"
was greeted everywhere with thunderous applause.
Even In the heyday of bis power,
when there was everything to induce
enthusiasm, the Liberal chieftain
and'the policies he advocated never
evoked such spontaneous response.
Throughout the country, with a
popular leader of a government in
au election campaign it is not often
that overflow meetings have to he

ing tbe whole of his tour meetings
had to he doubled and trebled. At
Cornwall the bit rink proved Insult!

But it was at   Woodstock Sir Wil
frill and Ills   colleagues       had       the
greatest demonstration probably ever
seen in anv ol the Ontario cities No

about three thousand people,    came

Milwukcc, Wis., Oct. U.—Colonel
Roosevelt was shot uud wounded tonight as he was leaving the Gilpal*
rick hotel for the Auditorium to deliver a speech.
His automobile stood in front of
the hotel aud tbe crowd gave ;. cheer
as the colonel appeared. As the party
reached the automobile Colonel
Roosevelt's companions stood aside
and he stepped into the car.
Mr. Martin, bis stenographer, en-1
tered directly behind him and sat
on the further side of the cur.
Colonel Roosevelt stood up,, waving
his hat in answer to the cheers of
the crowd. The assassin was standing in tbe crowd a few feel from the
automobile. Ile pushed his way to
the side of the car and raising his
gun, fired.
Martin caught tbe flash of lhe revolver as the shot was fired and leaped over the car a second after the
bullet sped its way. Colonel Roosevelt barely moved as the shot wns
Dred. Before the crowd knew what
had happened Martin, who is six leet
"Stop! Stop!" he cried; "stand
back; don't hurt liim"
The crowd al Iirsl was not disposed to heed his words, but ut. length
fell buck and permitted Matt in and
Captain Qlrard to carry the man Into the hotel. After a short struggle
the assassin gave up and was carried without resistance out of tlie
reach of the crowd.
"Are you hurt, colonel''" a liund
red voices called out.
"Oh, no," he responded with a
smile. "Missed uu* that time. I'tin
not hurt a bit."
"I think we'd belter he going on,"
he said to the otlier members of his
party, "or we will be late."
No one in Ihe party, including Colonel Roosevelt himself, entertained
the slightest notion thai the colonel
bad been shot. He felt no shock or
pain at the time, ami it wus assumed that the bullet went wild..
As soon as Colonel Roosevelt had
assured himself tbat ■ be assassin
was safe in     the hands nl the police
iall and a former football player,
had landed square!) on the assassin's
shoulders and bad home him to the
He threw bis right arm about the
man's neck villi a deuthlike ■,;.'*
and with his left arm sei/ed the
hand that had held tbe revolver. In
another second he had disarmed! him
Colonel Roosevelt stood calmly
looking on, as though nothing bad
happened. Martin picked Ibe man up
as though be were u child and earned lum tbe few feet which sepurnt
ed them from the car, almost to tbe
side of the colonel.
"Here be is," said Martin "Look
at him, colonel"
All this happened within a few
seconds and Colonel Roosevelt stood
gazing rather curiously ut the man
who had attempted bis life, More
the stunned crowd realized what was
going on. Then a howl of rage
went up.
"Lynch him, kill him," cried a
hundred men. The crowd pressed in
on them nml Martin and Captain (lir-
ard, who had followed Martin over
the side of the ear und were caught
with their prisoner In the midst of a
struggling throng of maddened men.
It seemed for the moment thnt the
assassin would lie torn to pieces by
tbe itifurinted crowd nnd it wuh
Colonel Roosevelt himself who inter
fered on behalf of tbe man.

Tbey had driven hardly our of the
four blocks from ibe hotel to the
Auditorium when .lohn Mcliralh, another of Colonel Roosevelt's secretaries, uttered a sharp exclamation
and pointed to tlie colonel's breast
"Look, colonel." he said. "There is
a bote in your overcoat "
Colonel Roosevelt looked down,
saw the bole, then unbuttoned the
big arm) coal which be was wearing
and thrust lus band beneath When he
withdrew it, his fingers were stained
with blood.
Colonel Roosevelt was not at all
"It looks as though I had been
hit," be said, "hut I don't think it
is anything serious "
Dr. Scurry Terrell, ol Dallas,
Texas, Colonel Roosevelt's physician,
who bud entered tlie automobile uist
before it started oil. insisted that
the colonel return to the hotel. Ile
would not hear ol it and the car was
driven to the Auditorium.
As soon as thev reached tbe build

a dressing room and his outer gar

impossible to hazard a guess as to
the extent of the colonel's injuries
and that he should by all means go
at once to a hospital."
"I will deliver this speech or die,
one or the other," was Colonel
Roosevelt's reply.
"1 have a message for the people ol
Wisconsin and I am going to deliver
When the auditorium was reached
Colonel Roosevelt, walking somewhat
unsteadily niul supported In (), K.
Davis and Cm-hems, made his wnj to
the stage.
As he took his seat volley after
volley of cheers tilled the enormous
hall and continued for several minu
tes. When semi-quiet was re
stored Cocbems advanced to the
front of tbe platform and told tin-
audience what bad happened He
suid that the colour had been shut,
but not seriously, nml urged lhc
people to be culm.
The psychological effect of the an
nouncement on the crowd was drn
mutic. A death like silence followed tbe announcement and in turn
tbat was followed by a wave n|
sound that was a mingled groan ami
cry of anger. The colonel arose ami
brought calm by assuring thc people
that lie was not badly hurt.
The address he made was not the
speech he expected to deliver. That
speech in his pocket had saved Ills
life, but it was drenched with his
own blood, pierced with a bullet, and
was almost illegible.
"I am currying the bullet iu mv
body," he said "1 have been at
tacked by an assassin, but 1 have a
message to deliver and will deliver it
as lohg as there is life in mv body
to speak."
Colonel Roosevelt was forced to
stop here, while the crowd roared iis
The colonel spoke for nearly an
hour. It was evident that be wai
more badly hurt than be imagined

Milwaukee speech.
His talk was frequently punctuated
with references to what had taken

bullet in his body. Ile asked the Indulgence of the audience

proach  In  America.  At   the outbreak
of Ihe   war   wilh     Spain he resigned
from the navy department ami raised
I tbe lirst   volunteer regiment of cavalry, popular!) known ns the "Rough
I Riders," because many oi its     mem
' hers      were    Western   cowboys and
ranchmen expert in the handling    of
: (be  rough ami often unbroken  horses
jot    the   western     frontier. The regi
menl also included    college athletes
.city clubmen and members     of     tbe
I New  York police force, every      man
possessiiin some   special qualification
for (be work  in   view. Mr- Roosevelt
declined     the colonelcy   of the regiment, preferring to take the post   of.
lieutenant-colonel  under  his  intimate
friend Dr. Leonard Wood, who, while
a surgeon iu ttie I'niled States army,
had served    in action with gallantry
ami skill against  tbc Indians. Ou the
promotion of Colonel Wood     to,    the
command of tbe brigade, Mr.  Roosevelt   became colonel of tbe regiment,
which Look au    especially prominent
part iu   tbe     storming of San Juan
Hill.     lu this battle Colonel Roosevelt became the ranking ollicer    and
abandoning his   horse, led the charge
up lull on foot under severe lire     af
thc head of his troops.     This charge,
in    which   many of the rough riders
were   killed, or wounded, drove    the
Spaniards     from     the   trenches and
opened the way to the surrender   of
Santiago.     u the conclusion of   the'
war, while the troops were still     in
camp     iu   the South,   .Mr. Roosevelt,
.mined iu a   "round robin" of protest
against the mismanagement in     the
war department,   which had resulted
in widespread   suffering among      the
troops from wretched food and    had
sanitary arrangements.   Tbis  "round
robin"   created   a sensation     which
aroused public opinion and was     instrumental in bringing about     some
desirable reforms   in the war department.
When his regiment was mustered
out of service iu September, lKftS,
Mr. Roosevelt was nominated by the
Republican party for the governorship of New- York State and was
elected iu November by a substantial
plurality. lie was governor for
two years. Ile reformed tbe administration of tbe state canals,
making tbe Canal Commission nonpartisan, he introduced the -merit
system into many of tbe subordinate
offices of the state; and he vigorously urged the passage of and signed
the Ford Franchise Act (18M), taxing corporation franchises. In various contests, in which be was al-
nost uniformly victorious, be showed
himself to he independent of "boss"
control. In 1900, although be wished to serve another term as governor
in order to complete and establish
certain policies within the state, he
was nominated for the vice-presidency
if tbe United States on the ticket
with President McKinley by the Republican National Convention in
Philadelphia in spite of bis protest.
It was very commonly believed at
ibe time that this nomination for
the vice-presidency was participated
in and heartily approved of by tbe
machine politicians or "bosses" of
the State of New York in their belief that it would result in bis elimination from active political life.
The office of vice-president of the
United States hail so lar In the
history of the country lieen almost
purely a perfunctory one, and hns
rarely, if ever, led to political promotion. The vice-president is e\
officio president of the senate, but
bas little voice or part In shaping
either legislation or the affairs of the
party. Mr. Roosevelt never, however, presided over the deliberations
of the senate, because belore the
session following his Inauguration
convened he bad ceased to he vice-
Upon the assassination of McKiu
ley, on tbe nth of September, 1901,
he succeeded to the preslilenev. No
previous president had entered tbe
office at so early an age as forty-
three It was bis frankly expressed
wish to he nominated nnd elected
president in 1904, and he was nominated unanimously by the Republican
National Convention at Chicago, and
was elected in November of fTint
year hy the largest popular majority
ever given to any candidate In any
presidentinf election, lie receive*! 7,-
028,486 popular votes nud 886 electoral votes to 5,077,971 popular rotes and 1 111 electoral votes cast for
Judge Alton II, Parker, tlie nominee
of the Democratic party. Immediately after his election he publicly declared that he would not accept tbe
nomination for the presidency In
1908, and be adhered to tbat pledge
in spile of great popular pressure
broughl lo hear upon him tn nccept
the nomination of the partv fnr another term. The nomination nnd
election of ('resident. Taft, wbn   Imd
been a member of Mr. Roosevelt s
cabinet, was very largely due to the
hitter's great influence in the party.
On March BSrit, two weeks after he
ceased to he president, Mr. Roosevelt,
sailed for   Africa, to cany out       n
long-cherished plan of 1 ducting    an
expedition (or the purpose of making
a scientific collection of the fauna
j and Horn of lhe tropical regions of
thai ennlIncut Kxperl naturalists
accompanied the party, which did not
emerge fiom ibe wilderness until the
middle oi ihe following March, bring
ing with it a collection which sclent
Ists pronounce of unusual value for
students of natural history. Most of
the specimens were sen I In Ihe Na
ttolinl Museum of lhe Smithsonian
Institute at Washington. Tlw ox
perieiices of bis African jonrnc) were
recorded by Mr Roosevelt in a vol
nine entitled "African Came Trails:
The Wanderings of an American Hunter Naturalist. The spring and
nark summer of lOIO were spent hv
Mr. Roosevelt in travelling through
Kgypt, the continent of Kurope. and
Kngland, in acceptoncc of Invitations
which he had received to make various public speeches in these countries. Honorary academic degrees
were conferred upon him hy the
universities of Cairo, Christ iaia,
Merlin, Cambridge nnd Oxford, and
he was given both popular and official ovations of almost royal distinction—ovations whicli were repeated by his own countrymen on his
return to America
It may be said without exaggeration that 110 American public man in
the history of the country has achieved such extraordinary popularity
during his lifetime as Mr. Roosevelt
had attained at tun years of age,
both at home and abroad. (.real
popularity necessarily brings with it
bitter enmity ami genuine criticism.
To understand clearly liis career as
a puhlic man, ami to appreciate the
forces at work which caused both
the popularity and the enmity, two
facts must he kept distinctly In
mind: first, that at twenty-two years
nf age he deliberately decided to
make politics his lifc-worto at a time
when in the United States the word
"politics" had .1 sinister sound in tho
ears of almost all of tbe so-called
cultivated classes; and secondly,
that in making this deliberate choice
he recognized that the government
of the United States is primarily a
pafty government. He therefore allied himself with the Republican party, to which by tradition, by family
association, and hy political principles be was naturally drawn.
In the history of the United states
the politician has heen too often the
man who, in connection with some
other trade or profession, has taken
up politics as a tool to cane out
some personal ambition or manufacture a financial profit. Mr. Roosevelt
from the beginning apparently believed with the lexicographers that
politics is tbe science and practice of
government. He has himself told the
story of an early experience that
illustrates his point of view. When iu
is.si he decided to join the Republican assocfat;on of his assembly district in New York City, members ol
bis familv were shocked. "You will
find at the meetings," they said,
"noboih but grooms, liquor dealers
and low politicians." "Well." said
Mr. Roosevelt in reply, "if that is
so, they belong to the governing
class, and you do nnt. I mean if I
can to lie one of the governing
class." Ile forthwith became an
active member ol the political nr-
gaui/atinti of his district. He also
early determined to work with liis
party as being the only vvay in
which a legislator can work, A free
lance, an independent, a journalist,
or a preacher,   without definite poli
tical affiliation, may create public
opinion, but a legislator or an administrator must belong to a party.
Mr. Roosevelt was severely criticised hy many "Independent Republicans" for having supported the presidential candidacy of .lames (I.
Itlaluo in 188*1, when be had vigorously opposed his nomination in the
convention 011 moral grounds. The
reply to ibis criticism is that Mr.
Hlaiiic was the choice of tbe major
ity of Ihe party, and that while Mr.
Roosevelt (fit free }o light within
the party vigorously for reform, he
did nol feel that the nomination jus
tilled a schism like that which occurred in the Democratic party over
the free silver issue iu 1896—a schism
which remained afterwards u hope
less weakness in that party. Ills po
sitiou in the Mlaiue campaign, his
attitude in tariff discussions and legislation, his relations with United
States senators, congressional official appointments, were entirely consistent with bis constantly reiterated
conviction that in politics permanent
good is achieved not by guerilla warfare, but hy working through and
within the party. lie was so often
accused by polltlcanl purists for associating politically with men of discredited reputation that his own picturesque statement of bis conversion
to a belief thai In : eglslatlve or
administrative politics one must
work witb all sorts and conditions of
men is illuminating
In liis successive offices Mr. Roosevelt not merely exerted a strong
Influence upon the immediate community, whose official representative
he was at the time being, but by
reason both of bis forceful personality and of the often unconventional,
although always effective methods of
work which he employed be achieved
n national prominence out of ordinary proportion to the importance of
his official position. His record in
the assembly was such that his party nominated him for the mayoralty
of the City of New York when he
was absent on his ranch in Dakota.
Although defeated in the mayoralty
election, his work on behalf
of the merit system, as opposed to
the spoils system of politics, was
such that lie was made :i Civil Service commissioner—probably tlie last
office a politician would wish to hold
who desired further promotion. for
tbe conflict which a Civil Service
commissioner must have with members of Congress and other party
leaders on questions ol patronage is
usually, or, at any rate, has been in
the past history of American politics, inevitably detrimental to further official advancement. He was taken from the Federal service in Washington to New York City by a reform mayor and put in charge of the
police, because he had shown both
physical and moral courage in fighting corruption of all sorts; and the
New York police force at that time
was thoroughly tainted with corruption, not in its rank and file,
but among its superior officers, who
used the power in their hands to extort money bribes chiefly from saloon-keepers, liquor dealers, gamblers aud prostitutes. As police
commissioner Mr. Roosevelt hrought
to his side every honest man nn the
force. Ry personal detective wnrk,
that is, hy visiting police stations at
unexpected times and hy making the
rounds at night of disorderly places
which were suspected of violating the
law, he not only displayed personal
courage in positions of some danger,
hut aroused public opinion. The very
sensation created by the novelty of
his methods set standards and started reforms whicb have greatly Improved lhe morale of the entire force.

in their dense, cheering torchlight
processions tonight, at anywhere'
from ten to twelve thousand.
The attempt to bouse them, even
to feed them, is scarce an apology.
The rink, which seals forty-live htniil-
red, was twice filled to suffocation,
while the town hall, which was also
requisitioned for an overflow meeting, was crowded to the doors.
The thousands who could lie accommodated in neither resolved themselves into a series ol voluntary processions, and paraded the streets repeating in rhythmic tones tlieir b|o-
gan "All Returning to Laurier"
Many ladies were taking part in
these processions carrying Union
•lacks, while most ul the men were
equipped with torches. At every
street corner the dense procession
would pause while some stalwart
called for "three cheers and a ti«cr
for I.aurier," which were given with
thunderous enthusiasm.
The Liberal chief was ia unusually
brilliant form, evidently inspired by
the marked evidences of affection and
loyalty to himself and thc old cause
which greeted him at every turn.
"To place belore the ueople of Ontario the Liberal position, freed from
the confusion of the campaign, a
year and more removed from the
smoke ol battle." was Sir Wilfrid's
definition of the purpose of the Ontario tour just closing. In keenly ap
preciative laaguage the chiel alluded
to the remarkable character of hw
reception and the inspiration he was
carrying away from the province. Ai

ladies, daintily gowned in white,

graceful arch. Then two tiny little
maidens placed huge bouquets in

withering stood cheering until it
-spontaneously lapsed into the strains
of "0 Canada," led by the kilted
It was a picturesque touch that
provoked an enthusiastic response
from the throng .Sir Wilfrid was
evidently moved. "I have come to

and you have received me like this
1 have no lamentations Ior defeat.
Every dog has his day, and 1 believe
there is another for us. I am
sure Mr. Dorden might well envy
me under this arch and amid such
bappy surroundings." Then the crowd
cheered again.
Sir Wilfrid completed his trip ' In
splendid spirits. Each of his speeches r.irn* with vitality, optimism and
courage. His quaint touches of humor were never more telling, his
smiles never more scintillating Discussing the Nationalist and .llngoist
representations In the Hordrti rabi

head, threw tbe great gathering into

Emphasizing the inaction ot the
administration, the Liberal ehlef re
ferred to the position in which It
had placed Itself In relation to the
Issue of the Canahian Pacific stock
und the application made to the government by the railway last August.
There were Important public questions to be determined In connection
with tbe application, but nothing
was done. Finally, when the corporation had Ignored a lethargic government and isswd tbe stock to the
shareholders   witbont farther await

"We have nol even considered xto

ruling passion of Inaction and pro

commented, amid cheers.

tour without having been able to find
a single Conservative who approved
of the Nationalist recognition in the
Horden cabinet. At everv meeting he

"No." replied Sir Wilfrid, emphatically, when he rose. "There is nol

my worst and bitterest enemy in
Quebec, but, unfortunately, there are
men who sought to create the sentiment that we do not owe anything

"No man appreciates Hritish connection more than I do," declarctt
Sir Wilfrid. "I wit! tell \ou why.

Sir Wilfrid, and he pointed out      it

of Its crop. In Ontario the farmers
could dispose of their crop in tbe

lor them.
But tbe wheat crop of Canada
alone would be two hundred million
bushels Ihis vear, not more than
twenty-five per cent of whieli Canada
could   consume.    The need   of wider
markets demanded attention. What
had the Horden government done in
Its lirst vear to solve the problem?
"We had hot heen in otlice twelve
months in-fore ne had Introduced n
new tariff.   Including ihe living prln
clples of the British piefereuce."
Sir Willrid  Introduced a personal

hearts oi the audience. "II mlghl
have heen proper fur me," lie said
iu regard to his defeat, "to give up
the leadership to abler and younger
hands." Hut when he had commenced
ou his last cainpa.gn he had told his
wife that if he lost they would spend
the rest of their days quietly, and
then when his defeat had come Lady
Laurier had been the lirst to go to
liim. "She was a brave woman, a
good soldier," said Sir Wilfrid amid
applause, "and she said, "You cannot give up, you must go oi
the fight."
"I want to fight again ot
principles of our rights as Canadians
and of our obligations as British
subjects. I am not an Imperialist
1 am a Canadian, first, last and all

ever evisted for the rights of man in
history. Ue arc a nation today in
Canada, hut this is the lirst nation
that has attained the degree of free

mil breaking from the mother country. We are all iree men, and 1
want to have another tussle with our
friends the Tories."
Sir Wilfrid then proceeded lo deal
with the issue of new stock of lhc
Canadian Pacific railway, as au e\
ample of the dilatory methods td the
Horden government
"Last August," said he, "the C.P.
It. presented a petition to Ihe government lo he authorized to issue a

such a petition was presented, hut,
we know* also that nothing wns done
about it. So we do not know how

"The company waited for an answer from tho government, Imi thoj

had to decide two points. Kirst,

The next point the government
had to decide was at what price tlte

C.P,It. and how much to the share
"Hut the government decided ncith

waited and waited for an answer,

worth $275.

Lament in the house of fieorgj
Piatt, and was furtlier charged with
being a frequenter of this establishment.
Bertha l.amnnt Have evidence that

and tnen only for a tew hours at a
The chief of police proved that he
went to Piatt's place ut her call and
found Krskine in au inside room. He
asked bim wbat he wus doing there
uud Krskine replied that he was
doing nothing.
Mr. p. I-:. Wilson, who appeared
for the defence, submitted on the
charge    of     frequenting that the

was doing iu the place to which
question he got no satisfactory answer.
During the course of Krskine's evid

learn the lesson of united action with
mutual respect for one another's Interests, and put up their goods in a
thoroughly up-to-date maimer, they
could compel a square deal and get a
good price.
Speaking on tbis subject, Mr.
Thomas Cunningham, chief fruit pest
inspector for B. C, says:
"The foreign Iruit grower seems to
have got control of tin* Vancouver
market, which is the hesl cash market on the. Pacilie coast. There was
more fruit shipped in this yenr than
last and more List than the year
before, which shows that the consumption of foreign fruit is nn the
increase. Unfortunately the same
cannot be said ol the home-grown
article The explanation is not in
the inferiority nl mir own fruit, be
cause iu exhibition tests either in the
United States or in the mother country, British Columbia fruit generally
curries off the hulk ol tbe prizes. No,
the fault lies in the high freight
rates and the faulty system of distribution. The system is one that
should be looked Into, says "The
Fruit Magazine," The local fruit
grower, given equal conditions, can
hold his own with any competitor,
but he is not given a fair chance hy
any means
"The production of small Traits in
this province bus gone behind. Vancouver Island produced more strawberries seven years ago than it does
today, and yet it bas the best
strawberry soil iu tbe world. Why is
this? Unfair transportation rates,
lack of co-operation between growers, and pour delivery. It costs
more to bring fruit from Vernon
than it does from across tbe border
in Wennlchec. This is discrimination. Cheaper transportation,
quicker delivery ami more co-operation will to tar to improve the situation"
The air is now full ot protests hy
Canadian fruit growers against the
action nf wholesale fruit merchants
buying so much fruit (rom the United
States, und the latter protest as
strongly that they prefer Canadian
frull when they can buy it at a right
price and put up properly in attractive packages. If the Canadian fruit*
growers would only be mure loyal tu

Kredcrtcton, N. B., Oct. 16.—Reports from practically every section
ol tbe St. John Valley confirm the
current rumors regarding the failure
of the potato und other root crops
on account of tbe floods during the
early part of September. Tbe loss is
estimated to represent millions* ol
dollars, as nnly about fifteen per cent
of the crop is at all marketable, par
ticularly in tbe Delta and marsh
laud districts.
In spite of the curtailment uf thc
supply of roots, prices on tbe Canadian side of the line ure lower this
vear than for six or seven seasons,
only sixty cents per barrel being offered for potatoes iu the London
On the other hand, in Maine, while
suffering considerable loss also (rom
Ibe wet weather, prices are stated to
be almost double those offered on the
Canadian side.
Considerable dissatisfaction Is lieing expressed b) the farmers on nc
count nr the present governmenl policy and the sentiment in favor nf reciprocity is growing.

Chief Justice Wetmore resigned

made that the Yukon representative
might be given the portfolio of
mines upon the creation of a separate
department or that industry.
The memorial points out that half

in minerals.
Ottawa, Ont., Oct. 16.—Hon. Sam
Hughes has favorably considered the
application of Armand Lavergne, cap
tain and adjutant of the Sixty-FirsJ
Montmagny regiment to be sent as a
Canadian military attache watching
tbe military operations of the Balkan states in the war against Turkey.
The young national leader, despite his utiti imperialism, is a good
soldier and a personal friend of the
minister of militia. Capt. Lavergne
will probably be ordered to the
Balkans within n tew days. Col.
Hughes will also probably despatch
an English speaking ofllcer of the Canadian militia to accompany ('apt.
Lavergne and collect pointers tn the
war game for the information of the
Canadian defense department.
Botli iu Kngland and iu India great

Several oilers of machines have been

have been made.
The distance along the proposed

40ft miles, so that the great journey
would be completed, weather ami other circumstances permitting, in
twelve days.
It appears that, save over u small
area, the glaciers ol the world arc
retreating to tbc mountains.
Tbe Arapahoe glacier in the Hock
ies bas been melting at n rapid rate
(or seier.il years. The glacier on
Mount Sarmieiito in South America,
which descended Into tbe sea during
the last century, is now separated
from the shore by a vigorous growth
I timber.
The .lacobslniveu glacier in Greenland has retreated lour miles since
the year I860, and tbe Kast glacier
in Spitsbergen is more than a mile
away from Its old terminal moraine.
In Scandinavia the snow* line is
farther up the mountains, and the
glnclcrs have withdrawn three thousand leet from tlie lowlands in a
century. In the eastern Alps and
one nr two other small districts the
glaciers are growing.

have led to hopeless defeat in election. His work in the governorship
brought him still more Into prominence as a national leader. His uncompromising antagonism to political
blackmail and bribery, and his determination to pursue the right, as he
saw the right, only In a common-
sense fashion,, made bitter enemies
on the one hand among the corrupt
politicians, and, on the other hand,
among theoretical reformers, and discussions raged in the newspapers
about his executive acts, his speeches, and his official messages much us
they raged during his seven years in
the White House. If he had never
reached the presidency he would probably have been a figure long remembered in American political life. Hut
it was his course in the presidency
that gave him his international reputation, and it is as President
Roosevelt that future historians of
American political life must chiefly
discuss him.
Mr. Roosevelt entered the presidency definitely committed to two principles which profoundly affected his
course as chief executive nf the
United States. He bad a well
wrought out belie! in centralized authority in government and a passionate hatred ot political and commercial corruption He believed the
United states to be a united republic, u sovereign nation, and not a
federation of Independent states unit

which established precedents, that as
time goes on will inevitably make

The struggle against some of the
most powerful financial and political
influences ol the time not unnaturally gave rise to the idea that his
work as president was destructive—
perhaps the necessarily destructive
work of the reformer—but not essentially constructive. Even those
friendly to him sometimes felt it
necessary to defend his political
course by saying that he was compelled to ra/e the old buildings and
prepare the ground on which liis successors might build new and better
No account of Mr. Roosevelt's career is complete without a reference
to his literary work, which has been
somewhat overshadowed by his reputation as a man uf public affairs.
He was all his life an omnivorous
reader of the best books In very
varied fields ot literature, and he developed to un unusual degree the faculty uf digesting and remembering
what he had read. His history nf

"And why had they not considered

was lirst presented Mr. Horden was
in Europe, and it wafted until be
returned. Then In- came hack, and
it was announced that the government would not deal with the mat

"Thc result of ibis delay was that

ignored the government altogether.
And the government oiler as a defence that the) had imt considered

"But that is imt sufficient. T say
that if the government of Canada arc
not prepared in six weeks' time to
consider any important question submitted tn them it is time you sbonld
have more able, courageous and ae

(Loud applause).,
"And why did they delay su long iu
considering this matter? The answer
is obvious. They were ton busy trying to reconcile differences and make
up their minds to have a naval policy. That is what has ahsitrhed all
tbeir attention for the past month,
and still they cannot agree upon any
permanent policy, although wben
they came into olliee they protested
tlieir eagerness for a 'speed)' construction uf a Canadian navy.
"Mr. Burden was vert 'speedy' in
opposition, but be has been very slow
in olliee."    (Applause).
Sir Wilfrid then proceeded to discuss the delay in the formulation of
a naval policy bv the Borden governmenl in trenchant terms, denouncing the unhid) alliance between the
Nationalists and the Conservatives
whicb bad led to the present impasse, with one section of the cabinet
determined that there should be no
navy and no contribution, while the
other wing was equally determined
that tliere should be both.
"It is this coalition between the
Englisb .Ungues and the French Nationalists which is responsible for
the failure uf tbe government t.. du
anything on the naval question/' tie
elared Sir Wilfrid, "lieeaiise it is uu
possible for such opposing elements
to agree.   (Applause).

The conclusion of Sir Wilfrid's address was again the occasion [or a
wonderful demonstration, the whole
audience rising aud waving hats and
handkerchiefs as they applauded,
while it took a tinal three cheers be
fore iheir surcharged emotions were
sufficiently quieted to allow tbe meeting to go Oil.

It was a strenuous day [or the

with greetings at practically every
stopping place. At Weston and
Palmerston the throngs were so
large and insistent that Sir Wilfrid
delivered short speeches. At Ouclph
Mr Hugh Guthrie, MP, headed the
delegation, having risen from a sick
bed to greet his leader.
An immense throng with bands,
