Premier Asqulth said he thought that as the result of a survey of the various parts of Britain the visitors would carry away two abiding Impressions, first that whatever pessimists and cynics have said to the contrary this motherland, the home and centre of the empire, is not yet moribund (cheers). "Wherever you have been you have seen aboundlns evidence of vitality and progress (I do not wish to speak of politics) In all soela.1, industrial and other walks of our common life, and next, but not the least Important, you will all go to your various dominions ami the colonies of tho King feeling that there Is an Identity of Ideals and alms between the different parts of the empire quite Independent of all political parties and which constitutes the nblcllng safeguard of the Empire In cn-operatlon with sympathy, freedom, and unity.

IvkmI patriotism and Imperial loyalty are said to be the characierlstic features of the conditions of our Empire, some people think it an accident, some think It a miracle. It is enough for nu and me to be good, true and loyal subjects of tho King, to recognize In It, a every one must the best solution which the political genius of mankind has yet provided." Mr. Balfour said, "I associate nv-eelf absolutely with the premier In what he has said In an optimistic vein.

decadent Empire, and we In this country are not a decadent part of the Emplr (cheerst. We this oountry, the motherland, are personally ready to bear all the weight and all the responsibility belonging to our position, and we know ther is an esuger, growing sentiment In every part of the Empire that we should not bear that burden alone (cheers). LIABILITY CALL Farmers Bank Shareholders Have Notifications. Toronto, Ont July IS. The call for payment of the double liability on stock of the defunct Farmers' Bank of Canada has Just been made to the shareholders by Liquidator G.

'larkson. R. E. Men-zies, who appears in the books an a holder of SO0 shares, declares that he will contest the bank's claim through the courts. I sold out every dollar of my stock two years before the bank failed," he says.

Dr. T. H. Wylie, billed for J10.000 double liability and WMA unpaid first subscription on 100 shares, haa Joined with the Ilalton shareholders and will fight to a finish. He olaims he onlv actually su'oncribed for seven shares and that a certificate for 100 was sent him by a clerical error, hich he promised would be rec tified Immediately.

He returned the certificate and heard no more about the matter. Regarding a rumor that some Hal-ton farmers were leaving for th Northwest, with a view to sinking all their capital In homestead property upon which double liability could not be levied, Mr. Clarkson, the liquidator, says If acy such cases are discovered the farmers will be followed and their goods seized. In anv case, he says, homestead land can be levied upon as soon as the homesteader settlement duties are performed and all that Is necessary is to establish the liability. A motion has been made before the I acting master-in-chambers for pr-1 mission for the liquidator of the Far- mere' Bar.k to serve a writ upon th directors of Lloyd's, England, who are outside the Jurisdiction of the Ontario high court.

Difficulty Is an-, collecting the i which the liquidator claims as 'he amount of the two annual policie held by the bank of the honesty ''t Its employes. Formal proof has been forwarded to England of the defalcation of W. R.

Alleged Scheme on Part Real Estate Man. of While the city fathers and the publicity coiniiiltice were on Monday night thinking about factory sites, bridnes across the Kldenu and nil the rut of It, a brlrtue was being actually euemlod across the llldenu rlvar Strathcona pnrk. It was started sometime Monday night. The residents In the vicinity of the park heard tho hum of saws and mistook It for mosquitoes. But while they were resting peacefully this bridge, that would huve done Justloa to Cnesar, wu being quickly Wild across the river.

In the morning It wns wcU nigh completed and last evening the work was flnnlly done and the railing on. Several hundred peopln lust evening Inspected the structure and pronounced It all right. What Is thu use of voting on bylaws when bridges can be built In night? This bridge Is about three nnd a hnlf fed wide and boglns Just where the Ottawa Improvement commissioners' property ends on the river side so thut this body evidently cannot complain. In future It can be used by people living ulrng the east side of the Hldean river. They run cross this bridge Into Ftrathcona park and by a trhort walk reach the street cars at the corner of Charlotte street and banrler east.

It is a big savInK as noe tho residents In this district hnvo to walk up to Cummlngs Itrldge nnd on to the Protestant hospital before they reach a street car. The water at the point where the bridge crosses Is only few Inches deep, except in the Hiring. This new bridge gives fnlrly con venlent aocess to the factory sites proposed over there. It Is said to have been built by a real estate agent to make a short route to a subdivision he Is selling. The bridge Is built so that It can Ife taken up In the wlntor when the residents can use the Ice.

It will be put down again when the spring floods are over. MORE STRIKE RIOTS Cardiff, Wales, the Scene of Serious Disorders. Cardiff.

London, July 19. Mr. Balfour had another long conference with Lord Lansdowne tonight and it is understood that they decided to adhere to the policy of allowing the amended veto bill to pass the third reading without division. So far, there no sign of any motion to reject the bill and although It Is still, possible that the Insurgent peers may challenge division It Is not expected that the revolt will be big enough to endanger the bill in this stsge as Lord Lansdowne and his associates are doing their best to counteract the threatened rising. The Liberal morning papers predict that the crisis will end quietly without the creation of new peers.

Assuming that the lords will, pass the third reading of the veto bill on Thursday, they state that Premier Asqulth will on Monday announce In the house of commons that the government has the power to make the nation's will prevail One rumor goes so far as to state that Premier Asquith has also authority to announce that the King desires, through his ministers, to express the hope that no violent differences of opinion shall be persisted In between the two houses of parliament. After an announcement of this kind the Liberals assume that Lord Lansdowne will counsel his followers not to persist in opposing the bill, but wlH the same time intimate the determination of the Unionist party to repeal the bill when they come 'into power. Some of the insurgent peers may even then hold out, but not enough of them to prevent the final passage of the bill. Color Is given to this Liberal view of the situation by the attitude of the Unionist organs this morning. They all anticipate that the bill will pass its third reading on Thursday, and some who have up to the present advocated the "So surrender" policy, now counsel moderate views, admitting that the insurgent policy would only lead to another general election when the Unionists would be certain to suffer defeat.
