Toronto, Ont., Juno 21. Tho general
election for the dominion parliament

the most hotly contested and in some re
spects tho most bitter in tho history of
Canada. Tho result is tho completo
overthrow of tho conservative govern
ment, led by Sir Charles Tupper.
While tho tariff question was' tho
most important issue of the campaign,
tho Manitoba school question aroused
a greater degree of enthusiasm and ex
citement, and a leading feature in the
election was the double-headed policy
of the conservative party on
that question. Many conservatives
running as supporters of the govern
ment on all questions except as re
gards its Manitoba remedial legisla
tion. Three cabinet minister in the
Tupper government were defeated viz.:
Hon. A. H. Dickey, minister of justice;
Hon. Tj. 0. Taillon, post master general,
and Hon. A. Dcs Jardines minister of

leader, was elected for two constitu
encies. Dalton McCarthy, leader of

house of commons, and Hon. A. B. An
gers, ex-minister of agriculture in the
Mackenzie Powell cabinet, was de
feated. Hon. David Mills, ex;minister
of tho interior in Alex Mackenzie's
cabinet, ivas also defeated. Tho voto
at midnight stands:
Liberals 111, conservatives 79, inde
pendents 8; patrons 4. There arc still
11 constituencies to hear from, but it is
conceded that Mr. Lauricr, liberal
leader, will on tho assembling of the
house, have a clean majority of 03, irre
spective of tho independents and pa
trons. There was much exeitoment
throughout the county: but tho voting

lights of coinage anil full legal

repeal of that republican nnd

doubled its purchasing power so that
the farmers and producers had to give
twice as much work to get a dollar as

When tho resolution recogni.ing the

what they wanted was armed interven

So, also, when tho question of the
joint resolution came up QuesacV;. and
