have been bunded to John Boultbee
of Rosslund in the stun of $15,000.

lenders are now being called for, on a

The Albcrni Election.
A few days ago, ucccrdii *.'   '•■
Liberal papers, ii was u .
elusion that Mr. Aitken, the    Liberal
candidate at Alberni would be elected
by a huge niiijority.il is now conceded
that the election will be    very   close,
which is of course, preparatory to  an
approaching   admission    of    dnfeit.
Meanwhile a   lot   of   type   is   being
used to explain   the   reason    thereof
VV. 13. Mclimis the former bolder   of
the seat for  the   Liberal   party   was
elected by a vole of nearly    three   to
one.    If this majority is   turned   into
a victory foi the Conservatives, it will
be a crushing  condemnation   l.v   the
penj le, of the  Liberal   tactics  during
tl.e sessions of   the   house   since  the
last general election.    It will   moreover give great additional strength to
the .McBride party, not only   by    tea
son of the additional supporter in the
•'ouse, but by reason of    the    exhibition by the people   of   confidence   in
the policy of the government.    Under
these  circumstances   both   sides    are
making strenuous'effurts,    and    while
several members of the provincial enh
inet are mi   the   ground    supporting
the Conservative candidate, the other
side have two  Dominion   members,
the leader of the provincial opposition
and last but not   least   the    redoubtable John Oliver-    The   last   named
gentleman however is regarded ii, the
same way as some   Yinir   politician-,
