Last night; he gave expression to his political views from the verandah, of Etillv's hotel. Mr. Connellv dealt at considerable length, with what may be termed the burning questions of the day.

Coming to what he regarded as the main issue to be placed before the electors at the forthcoming election, i c, freetrade or protec tion, he unhesitatingly declared himse...
