Whole of Canada is Stirred Up Over
Expense Money All Distributed aad
Preparations Are Being Made
for Getting; Out the Full
Vote Thursday
OTTAWA, Ont., Sept. 20.-The final day
of the campaign for the election of mem
bers to the twelfth Parliament of Canada
Is notable for the unprecedented activ
ity of both political parties, orators for
and against reciprocity being scheduled
to speak at hundreds of places all over
Canada this afternoon and evening. The
liberals and conservatives are actively
engaged In preparations to bring out
their full vote and a final distribution of
cash for legitimate expense 1 being
made today. The Canadian law forbids
a political party to hire vehlolee to con
vey electors to the polls, but the use of
conveyance of all kinds Is being donated
for the work.
The elections will be held In 214 of the
221 -constituencies. Three liberals al
ready have been elected by acclamation.
They are Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Quebec,
east; J. A. Ethler, Two Mountains,
and William M. German, Welland county,
German Is an avowed opponent of rec
iproeity, however. In four other districts
the elections have been deferred. These
are Gaspe, ChlcoutJmi-Saguenay, Quebec;
Thunder Bay and Rainy River, Ont., and
the Yukon.
Final Instructions to Workera.
HALIFAX, N. S., Sept. 30. Politicians
were everywhere active today. Final in
structions were Bent to the political
workers today and complete arrange
ments for getting out a heavy vote to
morrow were made by both parties. The
liberals -are making a determined attempt
to defeat Robert L. Berden, the conser
vative leader, and that gentleman has
been devoting much time to th situa
tion in Halifax city and county, which
comprise his constituency.
Hon. V. 8. Fielding, finance minister of
Canada and Premier Laurler's lieutenant
who was largely instrumental In perfect
ing the reciprocity agreement, is having
a stiff fight in the Queen'-Shelburne dis
trict, at the southern extremity of the
province. The financial minister la op
posed by F. B. McCurdy of Halifax.
It has been reported that several hun
dred employes of American tinning firms
which are opposed to reciprocity will
vote conservative in Nova Scotia tomor
row. Many of these fisheimen are resi
dents of Minister Fielding s district. The
liberal leaders, however, say they will
not be Injured by the fishermen vote, as
many of the fishermen are In favor of
the party. The Anglican archbishop of
Ruperts Land, 8. P. Matheson, primate
of Canada, and Rev. Charles Hamilton,
archbishop of Ottawa, acting for all the
I bishops of the church in Canada, have
issued an appeal to the voters of the
Dominion. The appeal concludes:
"The bishops desire at this time to re
mind men of all political viewa and par
ties that political purity la one of the es
sential foundation stones on which na
tional greatness and prosperity must rest,
and in particular that to buy or sell a
vote Is to act the part of a traitor to
your country and to Invite the Just con
tempt and condemnation of all good men."

controversy over th Identity of "George

be a man long supposed to be dead, was
further complicated today.
While dozens of people positively Iden

In the Auburn, N. Y.. penitentiary,
stretched out his arms and said, plead
ingly: "Mother, don't you know your boy,
don't disown me any longer. You know
I m your son."
Mr. Klmmel. withdrawing from th
man a he attempted to embrace her,
stood sternly scanning hi face.
"No," she said, "I don't see In you any
positive resemblance to my son."
Mother Not Beneficiary.
The meeting took place at the home of
Mrs. Harry L. Fox, who already had ac
cepted "Klmmel" an a cousin and posi
tively identified him as the son of Mr.
Klmmel. It was made known that Mr.
Klmmel haa no direct Interest In any
money which the Insurance companlea re
fuse to pay on the ground that the
son Is still living, but that a S30.000 policy
Is held by a daughter, Mr. Edna Klmmel
Bonslett, and another $5,000 policy la held
by a distant relative.
"I would have no selifsh motive In
denying the identity of my on If he wera
alive," said Mr. Klmmel.
"For years I have felt certain be was
dead, and I cannot believe that this man
is he. It seem that some motherly in
stinct ought to tell me th truth, yet
when I look at him I do not -recognise
htm. He only puules me. It ha almost
prostrated me to look upon this strange
man and have people Insist that be .1 my
"Klmmel" on looking at the woman
said he wa positive she was his mother.
"I wanted to take her In my arms." he
said, 'for she looked the same aa she did
years ago. I love her with all my heart
and cannot understand why she should
insist that I am dead.
"Still. I will not worry her. and If she
continues to disbelieve me It shall be aa
she wishes. But I know I am Klmmel,
for I recognise everyone."
Opinions Differ aa to Identity.
To test his acquaintance with Niles
'Jflmmur' wss escorted about the streets.
He repeatedly pointed out the landmarks
snd related former Incidents which the
townspeople t-sld were correct. Nodding
to people, he called them by their full
najnes. but many of thera professed not
to recognize him as the real Klmmel.
