Sir Wilfred Laurier  is to sail for  ���   home on the 2nd inst., and' Premier  McBride of British Columbia on the  10th  of August.     The general   impression prevails in the best informed  political circles that in   the event of  the United States' Senate'adopting-  the   reciprocity    agreement,    which  there is  small  doubt that body will  do,   Sir  Wilfred will   apply   for   an  immediate dissolution of the House, )  and    go   to    the   country    in    late  August or early September.   Should  the Senate  by any chance reject the  treaty, the Dominion  session would  proceed   to   an    early    termination,  possibly   in a  defeat of the Laurier  ministry  on the floor  of the House.  In the  event   of an  election   being  brought on   shortly,   it is   expected  that the,Hon. Richard McBride will  tour Canada to deliver a number of  speeches   in   the   conservative   interest, and against reciprocity.  mum  -Il  MOOSE JAW, SA4JC  ���ALBS.

The W.C.T.U. which   held  their  annual  convention  at Victoria,   re-  cently, exhibited a shocking lack of  good  sense . when  they  invited .to  address  them, a political   religious  fanatic, the Rev. Dr.   Matthews, of  Seattle.      Instead   of confining  his  remarks to the worthy  objects  the  W.C./T. U. has   in view, he brazenly  launched out on  the troubled sea of  controversial politics, and showed a  lamentable    disregard   for   all   the  laws  of decent  ethics "that  should  ^fuide the visitor when   in the territory  of another.    ."I believe," said  this miserable exponent of peace on  earth, etc., "that the time is not far  distant    when    the   imaginary   line  separating us from Canada will be a  thing  of the  past.     We' will soon  have one flag."   He was interrupted  by   a   voice.   "Then   it will  be   the  British flag."      *'I am sure you will  help   me  raise the American flag,"  replied the American  visitor.      For  good all round impudent immodesty  this would be  difficult to beat, and  we heartily join with our  coast contemporaries    in   deprecating    such  attempts   to stir   up  ill feeling  and  strife.     It might be  a  blessing to  the cult he  represents if this hymn-  singing  disciple of spread eagleism  forsook the pulpit, and substituted  the political soap box.  < ?
