Anniversary services were held
in the Methodist Church, here, on.
Sunday last, when Rev. A. M,
Sanford, B.A., B.D., President of
Conference, pastor of Princess
Street church, Vancouver, took
charge and gave very excellent discourses, which were highly appreciated by all who attended. Special
music was provided by a special
choir and Mrs. Vefmilyea, of Vancouver, contributed a couple of
Solos, one at each service.
In connection with the above a
concert of a very high older has
been arranged for this evening, to
take, place in the Tawn Hall, when
an excellent programme will be
eun off. A large attendance is expected.
Mrs. W. H. Wilson will be "At
Home" Thursday and Friday,
Nov. 2 ist and 22nd, afterwards
second Thursday.
Not content with expressing opin
ions opposed to those entertained by
the members ofthe Liberal party, he
has ranged himselt in direct opposition to the government oi the day,
ancl done his utmost to enib.irrass
.Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
His most heinous offence as a
pretended follower of the Premier,
was to give comfort and aid to the
Opposition in au at tea pt to discredit tbe administration. In this
lie followed the dishonorable tactics
of the opponents ot the government,
by dealing in innuendo and circulating scandalous rumors. After flippantly assailing the record 1 f mer,
the latchet of whose shoes 1 e v. as
unworthy to unloose, he had neither
the courage nor the knowledge of
tact to make a specific charge.
Bourassa will forget much, he is
j anxious to forget many   occurenesc
Ties, Shirts,Collars, Boots in his owu career-but there will.al-
ways remain clear in his memory
the events connected with Sir Wilfrid's reply to his unsubstantiated
charges when the premier, pointing
at him the finger of scorn, accused
him of groping in the gutter for
filthy rumors and bringing them
into the house. Up to this point
Bourassa had been an object of contempt, after Sir Wilfrid Laurier had
administered his castigation he became more an object of pity.
In his unbounded self conceit Mr.
Bourassa considered himself in the
light of a modem Moses, who was
to lead the people of Quebec to the
promised laud. Since the result of
the election in Bellechasse, he has
assumed the character of Napoleon
returning tror.t Moscow.
Mr. Bourassa may be  eliminated
from any consideration of political
conditions.    This young mau took
himself more seriously than   others
did.    It is true he possesses  ability
of a certain kind.   -Being fluent o!
speech he said things well,   but   he
did not say anything worth saying,
compared to the dreary  monotones
of Dr. Sproule, or the iterations  of
W. H. Bennet on tlu  member ior
Rainy River, it was a relief at times
��� I for the House to give attention  to
j Bourassa.    While the latter   tuter-
I tained the House, he  did  not im-
j press it.    It would be said  o t_him,
Assocl'| "that was a good speeck."  but  no
one appeared to remember  what  it
was all about.    Mr.   Bourassa was
expend any necessary sum or sums
of money that the committee may
deem necessary in acquiring full
information as to the practical
working out of some such scheme
and to report at a public meeting to
be called by said committee, of;
wbich due notice will be given.
It was also resolved that the secretary write our Municipal Council
asking that sufficient funds be set
apart for the use of said committee
in the execution of their commission, after which the meeting adjourned.

were 8c per lb lor hindquarters and
from 5c to 6c for forequarters. Quotations were not as firm as they
were last week.
Lamb and mutton were both a
fair supply, but cleared out readily
at the old prices of from 12c to 13c
for mutton and from 14c to 15c for
lamb. The stock of veal was also
quite short, with consequent firm
prices. Small carcases brought nc
a pound and tbe larger ones from
8c to 9c.
Butter sold at the old prices el
from 30c to 35c retail. There wa.
a fairly large stock on .sale and
trading was brisk. Eggs again
sold at 60c retail, while the jobbers
managed to secure a few hundred
dozens at 55c Eggs err still in
very strong demand.
Poultry quotations were a little
firmer and some stock even sold at
better prices than prevailed last
week. Fowls sold for frojj $6.50
to $8.50 a dozen, and the general
run of chickens brought from $4.2-5
to $6,50 a dozen. The supply of
both was an average one, and under
a keen demand the entire stock
was sold out. The supply of ducks
was fair, but the demand was not
strong. Quotations were from
$6 50 to $7.50 a dozen.
The supply of potatoes was large
and a number ol sales were made at
about $18 a ton. A large supply
of ��nious sold at ��2.75 a sack.

dignity, and his continued attempts
to pose, disgusted the members.
He never raised the debate to a
higher level, his violent demonstrations were calculated to excite
the risijle faculties rather than
provoke conviction in the minds of
his hearers. Tn plain English the
man lacks balance, and is possessed
of an inordinate vanity. His treachery to his leader, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and contempt for the Liberal,
party will never be forgiven by
those who would attribute many of
his shortcomings to youth and iu*

Auction sale, Thursday, siSth in
A plat., for drawing trade to a
towa, that bas been successfully
worked at several points might be
adopted to advantage in this town.
The plan is as follows: An agreement was reached between all the
merchauts whereby they otlered
ipeeial s lies > i cer.a.n clays, each
merchant selecting some special
line of gcods upon which he made
a lower price than usual. Thus
one dry goods house would sell
gloves at a special price, while another would offer bargains in dress
goods. Every line of business was
represented and care was taken that
no conflicts occurred. Prizes were
then oflered to the fernxer bringing
in the best load of grain or the
handsomest baby and the bargain
day was extensively advertised in
the surrounding country, the names
of the merchants and their special
sales being in, all casps stated. The
farmers responded' in a most gratis
tying manner and the merchants
wer,e well pleased with the plan.
The idea has already been carried
out in sevetal cities.
