men so much in demand, never did

Great Deeds Done.
The manner in which the great
West has been opened up is a
monument to the sagacity of the
Government, and the results a
marvel of tbe century. The land
aud water transportation problems
ot Canada bave been solved in the
interests of the Dominion as a
whole. The National Transcontinental Railway, to bui.d which
the government received a direct
mandate from the people, is being
rapidly pushed to completion, and
very shortly Canada will have another line stretching irom the Atlantic to tbe Pacific. The finances
of the country have been so ably
and economically administered that;!
each year of Liberal rule has found1
the d.lit-of the country promptly!
discharged, no new t'ebts creat-ed,
and a handsome surplus remaining. |
Lower tariff, producing a gre^tef
revenue, has been less burdensome
to the people and accomplished the
purpose lor which it was-designed.
The Post Office Department has
been managed in a business-like
manner, resulting in a sruplus for
the first time in the history of the
country. Every department of the
Government has been conducted
upon business principals, in which
honesty and economy have become
apparent in the satisfactory results
What Electors Demand.
What does the average elector require of a Government.
1. To do everything possible to
promote the prosperity and welfare of the people.
2. To administer public aflahs
economically and honestly, to tax
the people equitably and fairly, but
oot nnduly.
3. To develop the resources ��f
the coantry on sound principles,
and to that end to promote immigration, and to pTovide transportation facilities.
Have Liberals Made Good?
The concert in the Town Hall, "
on Tuesday last, under the auspices
of tlie I, dies' Aid ofthe Methodist
Church, was a great success, being
pronounced as the best yet. To
those taking an active part, great
credit is due. Among those to
whom especial credit should be
given, Mr. Weare probably stands
out most prominently for the high
s'a^e nf efficiency to which he has
brought the orchestra which is
composed of local talent, also for
the interesting and unique "Action
Son?" which was eoraiposed of six
small boys. It was a novel idea,
the hoys being so arranged as te
make it appear as though three
only were on the stage, and that
they were dwarfs, seated.
Mr. Spice, we regret testate, had
contracted a severe cold and was
not heard to advantage, while Mesdames Ver.-.iilvea, Cross and I.hii-
ning delighted the audience by
their songs.
.Mesdames Hilton and Betts acted
as accompanists,
The programme was as follows:

"A Waiter's Trial," Mrs. W. R,
Ellis, Miss Devitt and Eld on
Brodie; song, "Kathleen Mavour-
i.een," Mrs. Cross.
An interval of ten minutes was
here given for tbe purpose of allowing the chairman, Rev. J. F. Betts,
to entertain the audience which he
did in his uswal and pleasing manner, after which the second .part of
the ptogramme was cpened with a
selection by the orchestra; action

boys, Cedrie Hilton, Arthur Dev-
���ereaux, Roland Lanning, Stanley
