The years of Tory rule in Canada have been marked by some o1
the most glaring instances of corruption and stealing of the publi:
moneys and public domain wliich
have ever disgraced a civilized country. Conservative government was
distinguished by an utter absence of
constructive ability, and a lack of
intelligent grasp of conditions most
���deplorable, and had it not been for
the progressive spirit of the Canadian people, and prompt action in
turning thc rascals out, Canada
would to-day have been nationally
bankrupt, her prestige ruined, her
resource* dormant in the hills and
valleys, her credit destroyed, and
���her public men of the Conservative
stripe the derision of the civilized
world.
English Press on Tories.
The London Times, the London
Graphic, the London Telegraph,
the Birmingham Gazette, the London Echo, the St. James Gazette,
the Graphic Despatch and many
others commented on the deplor
���able condition of affairs rn Canada
as conducted by Conservatives, and
expressed the opinion "that only
the most resolute and drastic purification can redeem public life ill
Canada from the taint of corruption
the like of wliich we have not seen
in our own country tor hundreds
ol years." Said one paper. "Rascals in office, and rascals in office
prostitute themselves, sacrifice their
houor and forsake their trust in
order to keep ou -good terms with
the rascals out of office."
Yet another London paper said
"The existence of an organized
system of corruption among public
officials in Canada has been conclusively proved, and like everything
else on the American continent the
bribery has beeu colossal." The
London Graphic Despatch spoke out
openly and said, "liven Tammany
Hall smells sweet and clean in companion with the huge stink pot of
tbe Conservative government."
Rascals Turned Out.
Matters were brought to a climax
iri 1896 wben the accumulating
scandals led to the rout ofthe Conservative party, and the men who
had brought disgrace upon themselves and made of Canada a bv-
word, were ignominiously turned
out ol office by an insulted peo; le.
In view of the claims to political
purity on the part of the Conservative party and press, and the vague
but baseless charges laid at the door
j of their politieal opponent, it may
,'be well to recollect Canadian history.
After .Sir Jolni Macdouald had
been found guilty of that greatest
of all political scandals, Which involved the sale of the Canadian Pacific charter along with fifty millions ol acres ot land and thirty
acres of land and thirty millions of
dollars cash, to Sir Hugh Allan, in
exchange lor $360,000 ofa corruption fund, the people of Canada
buried him and his  party  beneath

Method of Judging.
The Seed Branch ofthe Dominion
Department of Agriculture was responsible for the judging cf the
competitions. Judges wcre sup- j eiglity to sixty
plied by the Seed Branch free of
cost to all the agricultural societies
holding competitions. Twenty-two
judges were employed in all, in the
three provinces. These were all
either successful western farmers or
officers of the Seed Branch.
The judges for Manitoba and
Saskatchewan met in conference at
Indian Head on August 15th, and
those for Alberta at Lethbridge on
August 10th. The object of these
conferences was to discuss matters
pertainiogto the Standard of excellence for seed grain, so that the
judges might go to their work with
unfortn ideas, and to  accustom the
competition is invariably completed
by the one judge, but it makes
comparisons between ��� different districts unfair. Thus, one judge
scores a competition, grading tire
contestants from ninety to seventy,
another judge might place r__em in
the same order   -.-itli -scores from
Rules Governing Competitions.
The following rules gcverned the
competitions:
1. Competitions Shall be confined
to fields of wheat or oats, or both,
provided separate price lists afe

2. Prizes to the amount of n<H

Union Services.
The union evangelistic services,
which have been in progress dining the past week, under the direction of Mr. and Mrs, Gordon, have
been very successlul. The attendance has increased throughout the
week and on Sunday evening the
Methodist Church was crowded;
every available bit of room being
occupied, chairs having to be
brought in. The Bible readings in
the afternoons, in the Baptist
Church, have been intensely interesting and have beeu accompanied
with much spiritual power.
Mr. Gordon has preached at every evening service and his sermons
have been listened to with closest
attention by s}ll, while Mrs. Gordon's singing and addresses in the
after services have been received
with the greatest delight and in
very many individuals have produced conviction, leading to surrender to Christ.
The services will be continued
throughout this week, and will
close on Sunday next when tha
morning service will be held in the
Baptist Church at 11 o'clock and in
the Methodist Church at 7:30 p.m.,
when Mrs. Gordon will tell s^most
thrilling story of "A Trip South."

foul blot on the history of Canada
was partially overlooked by tbe
people, who again trusted their
affairs to a Conservative Government, but after years of bitter experience, in which the corruption,
thievery and fraud were practiced
with undiminished vigor, the Conservative party in 1896 was promptly and eflectively buried.
Concrete Cases of Fraud.
To come to concrete cases of Tory
corruption. In the Chicoutimi by-
election of 1892, Savard (Lib.) and
I Belley (Con.) ran. Just prior to
election the returning officer telegraphed to hold a poll at Point
aux Esquimaux. His telegraph instructions were: "Proceed to-morrow as follows: Get a small wooden box made, prepare a certain number of ballot papers and wrile the
names of the candidates upon
them."
Again on the day of electon he
wired: "If you have no list, allow
those who are supposed to be electors vote and it will be all right."
The deputy took the hint and
returaed 63 votes for Belley |_Con.)
and aoae for Savard (Lib.). Belley
bad 39 majority. The returning
officer declared B .Hay elected, and
a recount was was asked for. It
was held before a judge, who was a
brother-in-law to the Tory candidate. The 63 illegal votes were
counted, and Belley took his seat
and held it until 1896, backed by
the Tory majority ia the House,

I don't expect to. find perfection in

and If he, really and truly loves you. I
