CANADA  HAS ANOI'IIKH   INDUSTRY
Will She Protect It oa She Hue Her Other
Industrie**?
In the fall or winter of 1888, a smelt*
ei was Mown in at Vancouver, hut it
"froze" within twenty-four hours.
The management claimed that the
plant was defective: but the plant was
not built for any other purports than
getting a bonus offered by the Province and one offered by the city of
Vancouver. The litmuses were mil
paid, however, arid the plant was sold
nt sheriff's sale. The Vancouver
smelter was to gel iia supply nf nre
from the Monarch mine, near Field, n
slniiiui on tlie Canadian Pacific railway (Wil miles east of Vancouver und
130 eaat of Kevelstoke. The ore was
Inw-gnule antl refractory, and could
not, have been smelted successfully
alone, In the summer of IHOO, a
smelter was blown in al Ilcvelstokc.
It ran a few days and " froze." It was
to have drawn ils ore supply from the
No. 1 ami United mines in Ainstvorlli
district. Tlie plant was also suid at
sheriffs sale, A smeller wilh built at
Golden in 1892, but it has not been
blown in.
In the winter of 18:11-1(2 work was
commenced at Pilot. Bay In clearing a
site foi- a smeller and building a wharf.
Several of the buildings were creeled
nud part of the machinery purchased
and delivered on the ground during
1HH2 and 18911, but for some reason all
work was suspended for a lime. In
July of last year work was resumed,
nnd on Saturday, the 0th instant, the
smelting of ores became an actual industry in British Columbia,
The works at Pilot Bay are as complete ns any in Ihe United States, and
comprise a 200-ton concentrator, four
12-tnn reverheralory roasters, one
100-ton water-jacket furnace, a machine
shop, a hliieksuiitli shop, an assay
otllce, and a business otllce, all lighted
liy electricity. Power is furnished by
three engines and uu, M0 horse-power
boilers. Charcoal is burned in three
kilns, distant n few hundred yards
from Ihe smeller buildings. At present the ore supply comes fnnn Ihe
Blue Bell mine, opposite Ainsworth,
and about eight miles up the lake from
the smelter, and from the No, 1 mine
at Ainsworth, IhiI.1i supplying the
needed dry ore. The bulk of the ore
from the Blue Bell is first concentrated,
and the concentrates roasted. No flux
is requited other than lime rock, the
Blue Bell carrying an excess of Iron,
The furnace is not run at full blast,
owing to the crew being green hands;
hut they occasionally handle themselves as if trained to the business.
On Wednesday the night shift, ran
through 48 Ions, and the daily average
is not far from 80 tons. This does not include the fuel, of which twelve tons of
coke and three of charcoal are used
daily, The bullion is run into 100-
puuud.. bars, the daily output being
from 17 to 18 tons. Of the slag about
10 per cunt, is matte, which is broken
iip and run through a crusher, then re-
roasted and re-smelted,
Once tlie crew gets broke in, the
furnace will lie run to its full capacity,
100 tons daily. Everything even now
is running smoothly, and there is not
likely to lie any trouuble ns long ns Ibe
works are in charge of Supt. Gurdon,
who hns in foremen Otto Abiding and
Kdwttrd Kenyun, men who thoroughly
understand the practical working of
concentrators and furnaces, and in
Franklin Wilson an expert ussiiyer.
The liusiness end of thu work is run
hy A. B. Hendryx, assisted by D. W.
Clark, cashier and hooakeeper. Al
the Blue Bell mine, II. Stevenson is
foreman.
Both the smelter ami llie mine are
owned by the Kootenay Mining and
Smelting Company, nhicb is organized under the laws of New Jersey.
The capital stock of tbe company is
$2,250,000 and is held mainly by K. W.
Merrick, president, who lives al Minneapolis, and by A. II. Hendryx, treasurer and general  manager, of New
Haven, Connecticut, who is now living
at Pilot Hay* B. P. Kithet, of Victoria, is vice-president, The company
hns 140 men on its payroll, some of
whom aie, however, only temporarily
employed on outside work. If another
futtince is added, which is not at all
unlikely at no distant date, nlioul 20(1
men will lie permanently employed.
As soon ils Ihe output of bullion
liniouilt-f. to 40 tons n day, a refinery
will lie creeled nl some point in eastern Canada, For the present, the
bullion will Ihi ship|icd lo Aurora,
Illinois, and the Iirsl carload wns
brought to Nelson to-iluy on the
sl earner Nelson,
There is enough ore in sight to keep
tbe smelter running continuously, ami
Canada can take care of every pound
of Ihu bullion product, Bul will she
lake care of II ? Will she extend lo
our silver-lead miners and smelters the
same measure of protection that she
extends to her other industrial workers?   If she does lbe Pilot Bay smeller
will ho a success, ami every silver-lend
mine owner In Kootenay will lie able
to keep his head above water.—Tribune,
MINING   NOTES.
The proprietors of the Cliff mine ut
Trail creek refused lu-st week the sum
of $80,000 for Iheir interests.
Last week look place the lirst ship*
inenl of bullion from (lie Pilot Buy
smelter. The shipment, consisting of
two car-loads, was son! tu ihe refinery
at Aurora, Ills.
The Pooininii, Novelty mid Cnli-
foriiia cliiims at Trail cii't'k have lu-.-u
sold to an American syndicate from
Butte, Montana, for ilu- sum of $2u,uno.
li is proposed to do much development
woi-k ul once.
A Mr. Alperson, of the Aiuswortb
districl, recently sent u specimen of
ore from bis claim to the local assayer,
which, having been tested, gave a return of 8,200 ounces of silver. This result was as pleasing us it was unexpected, and the owner is now prepared
to make a carload shipment.
The Finch Mining and Dredging
Company, which aj-« working on the
Frasur, iilmiit flv« miles north of LyU
ton, are said to lie making about $20au
hour, the cost of operating t he plant lining some $20 per day, The fact of Ihe
water being low in the river accounts
for theii- ability In do so well wilh
their light appliances. The latter con-
sist of a six-inch centrifugal pump ou
n small scow. There are about 500
men at work on the bars between I.yt-
ton and Lillooet, and these average
from $2.50 to $11 with the rocker.
Stern and uncompromising measures should at once Ih* put in force lo
prevent the flagrant acts of theft
known as "claim jumping," and to
punish the perpef 'toi-s. Several valuable claims hnito of late been "jumped"
in the Trail creek district, uml not'
ably the Great Western and tlie Golden Chariot. These claims were purchased by Messrs. Burke k Jones, of
Spokane, Since the purchase the
claims have been jumped and renamed. The rightful owners, how -
ever, have determinedly signified their
intention of maintaining their right of
title in the law courts. The Tribune
thus notes: "Judge Wnlkeni should
preside at the next session of court in
Kootenay. AftewSfds there would lw
few junipers."
A milling contemporary publishes
tlie following report I "There is a
company of smelter men now negot i*
at ing for the building of a smelter on
Boundary creek, and it is generally
supposed that they nre bucked hy the
Kansas City smelting Co, Negotiations are being made for a compromise
whereby they are asked to put up thu
works at Boundary Fulls and liecomu
interested in several copper and silver
mines near there." Should this ttsser.
tion prove correct, I he s|»edy develop,
men I of tlie Kellle river mineral resources will Iw assured. And uot only
will a smeller established un Boundary
creek prove must beneficial to the district, but together with the smelter established in Koolcmiy, and the one
proposed at Trail creek, will be a jhiw-
erfiil agent towards discovering tn Ihe
world a fact that ere long wjll Ihi palpable, that the mineral wealth of British Columbia is incontestable. "Such
a consummation Is devoutly In  lot
wished."
 r-e-*i	
A curious case is reported from Ann-
strong. A member of the municipal
council, a Mr. Jackson, was about lo
Ink.: upon himself the cares and responsibilities of married life. On thu
marriage eve the bride made the (lis*
cnyei-y that Mr. Jackson was not Mr,
Jackson. For years the worthy councillor has been known to llle good people of Arms!rung as plain Mr. Jackson,
at tlie same time he was aware that his
forefathers rejoiced in the more arislo.'

pseudonymous Mr, Jackson was In-
fittingly punished in lieing obliged lo

Ibe necessary license was made out

It cannot be said that ladles in British Columbia are mil demonstrating
llieir ability Ul compete successfully in
the professions which are claimed generally by I lie sterner sex us their particular inheritance. In a paper pull*
lislied ou the coast appeal■supanigni|ili
staling thut a young lady of Westminster has signified her intention of
becoming a candidate for the school*
trusteeship in the ensuing year. Supplementary and immediately following
ihis, is the second announcement of
tbe "holding up" and highway robbery of au AI(ler|KKil farmer, perpetrated by a woman, who wns assisted,
however, by three mule accomplices,
The San Francisco Herald of Trade
contains an excellent article which it
entitles "ChangingEras." It points
nut that in tlie history of civilized
countries ll law appeal's traceable that
business depression und also prosperity
come alleinatively within almost regular and stulcil periods of time.

ioniil-Liliei-al Conyeijr^ioi.i.at, Ottawa,
iu June of 189:1. Of llie "plunks" iii

But, although this is the main, there
(ire other planks in Ihe Liberal platform which may lux all the Ingenuity
nf Hie Conservative party to pcoye uu-
sound. They wjll also have pi explain
away lo the satisfaction of the electorate so grave a charge ns, retaining
in otllce a minister who had accepted
funds for election purposes from ii riiil-

NOTES ANf) COMMENTS-
It is now authentically stated that
the Dominion elections will not. take
place until after unotliiT session has
pusse'l, The house has been convened
fill' the 181 h of April. Our present
representative will, therefore, have
sonic respite before again posing as a
candidate; Vbjle Mr. linstock has now
the opportunity'of better acquainting
himself wilh the reqiiireineuls of the
large district be seeks to represent in
the Liberal interests.
It is cniiiienlly satisfactory to note
that reil-tupeisin has not for mice
interfered in the speedy eiecutiim of il
just and i|)erc|f|)l act, And the un-
I'orluiuili: man, Simpson, heedlessly
condemned by Mr, Justice Crease lo
three years' penal servitude for contempt of court,-will, by the repeal of
the sentence by the Minister of Jus-
lice, lie relieved from the misery of anticipating an additional heavy term of
prison Ijfu to bis already long sentence.
The Liberal Association of New
Westminster, after acqu'esclilg in the
general Liberal policy, hafce. further
adopted, so Bays the Columbian, "a
series of mora especially western, Provincial iind District' planks. These

The Spallumcheen Council have thus
wisely decided to encourage the establishment of industries and iiiiiiinfiic-
turies within the. munieiniility by
granting such, exemption fi-oio taxation for a term of years. This mode of
encouragement is infinitely preferable
to the system"of bonus, offering, as it

Mr. W. Hall, a graduate of Kingston

.quire a mine.
C. de B. Green, 0, E., came over

Mrs. Green and family left last week

at present. The cuttle easily wintered

jind in.the. future his pocket heavy, at
jeast such is our w|*,h.
Different individuals havo different
ideas as how to carry on a St. Patrick
pelehration, We are given to understand that a true son of Erin, one of
Grand Prairie's residents, hit upon the
plan of getting up Very early in the
'morning', in fact so early that he felt
lonesome, and being a jovial fellow,
and loving companionship, he took the
.expedient of pouring coal oil on one of
the out buildings and setting it on
lire, at the same time lustily shouting
for help. It will bo readily understood
that the little joke had III1' desired
effect of not only burning a. corner out
,of the building, but also uf bringing
onto llie scene, ot action the rest of the
inmates of the house, iincj somo were
not attired for presentation ut a
tjueen's drawing room, ('al generally
gets the best of ill at all times, and so
did he ou this occasion, for all through

A short time ago we noted the fact
that the water power at Boundary

Mr. Butchart, agent for the North

Messrs. Manley Bros, are erecting a

Mr, D, D. Fan-oil, of Butte, Mont.,
came in on Friday's stage and left
again on Sunday. We understand liis
mission here was lo look over some
mining properties in llie interest of
Molilalia parties. The Skylark and
Helen claims, and others in Deadwood
ramp, claimed his especial attention.
The snow on Boundary mountain is
still two feet deep in places, the
mellirig of the same and the frost coming out of the ground make the roads
very soft for travel. As a result
most of the teaming is being done over
the old route of travel, via the Kettle
river road through the reservation.

THE  WORLD  OVER.
A ghastly and cold-blooded crime is
reported to have taken place at St.
Thomas, Out. A man of the mime of
Hendershot was heavily insured in
favor of certain of his relatives, and to
obtain thu amount, $10,000, Hendershot was deliberately muidered by his
uncle and another. One of the prisoners confessed his criminality, It reads
thus: Deceased had knelt down to
drink out of a pool, when he received
a blow from.an axe on the right temple from Welter. He was not stunned,
but r'ose and attempted to run. The
men, having begun their bloody work,
followed it up. The uncle grubbed
him by the wrists, while the other
struck him again and again with the
axe. When the deed of blood was
done, the body was placed where it
was when found by those to whom
Welter (list brought the news. The
murderers then washed themselves
and the axe in the pool, and hid tlie
instrument with which they had muidered their victim,
A proclamation has been issued by
the executive committee of the Protestant Protective Association, in
Which a solemn protest is entered
against Dominion interference iu the
Manitoba school question, These gentlemen further proceed to threaten
that if the Dominion Government dare
tn accede to the demands of the
Catholic hierarchy, civil war will be
engendered. Of course such mere
twaddle shows only a ridiculous side
to men of sense and breadth of mind.
Yet il, seems a pitv that seditious rubbish of this and a like nature should Le
allowed to be spread broadcast among
the ignorant and unthinking.
China has indeed suffered severely
for the claim she put forward to supremacy in Curea. It is understood
now, however, that terms of peace are
about to be concluded, but they are
disastrous in the extreme to China.
The island nf Formosa will lie ceded to
Japan. The Japanese will lie allowed
the right to occupy Port Arthur and
Wei-Hni-Wei, two important strategic

relinquish her claims in Corea, and
further, an indemnity of $250,000,000 in
gold will lie paid into the Japanese

Every one who hns had much to do
with tho rearing of switie, whatever the
conditions, has time and again observed
that tlioy seem to crave certain substances that nre not ordinarily regarded
ns foods, Among the best known of
theso ure charcoal, stono-coiil, bones,
decayed wood, pieces of brick, mortar,
etc.'No imilter how much they urn
given of what may be called proper food,
llicv will, whim given access to the sub
stnnciis named, eat astonishing quantf
tics—so lunch as to apparently endanger their well being, if sot their lives.
Of such nrtielos tlmtare devoured liy
swine, none c iu be more hurmless than
clmrcoal. nie! It Indeed is recognized as
being a healthful corrective, giving tone
to the digestive systoiu and thereby
tending to prevent the breeding of in*
tealinul worms.
To those who have not observed the
matter closely, the facts as to worms
and the damage they do to the swine-
crowing interest every year, would, if
indicated in dollars and cents, represent
an appalling total. This is so much the
ense that when such inexpensive sub
stances as charcoal, wood ashes and suit
will serve ns almost infallible preventives, no man who raises hogs at all
should fail to have them where the animals can at all times help themselves,
A pint or a pint and a half i" salt to a

DYING WORDS OF GREAT MEN,
To the Electors of Yale-Cariboo

-Iu response to tho widely expressed desire of
representative moil In various parts of your
lllslriet I lane decided In enllle forward (is a
eiiinlidsle nt the fortheomliiK olootloriB, In "Wash imi lo the present (lovunuiiolit.
As this is such an cniiriiiiins distriet I am. of
course, personally unknown to hIui-kc number
of you; but I niny state that 1 have large Interests at mill around Ilucks mid Knniloiips. and
um very desirous, for your welfare und inine. to
see this Province progress more than il lias
done fur the lust few years.
I um opposed to the policy of protection
which has been pursued for the last sixteen
years, ns being until led to the requirements of
the country, and benetltting the few at the
expense of the many,
1 join in the condemnation of tlie corrupt
manner iu wliieli tho administration of the
attiiirs of this country bus been curried on during the time that the present party lias boon in
office.
I consider :—
1. Thnt n customs tnrltr, if iinpnsod nt all.'
should only he for tbo pnrpciBc of raising a
revenue, not for tlie purpose of protection:
2. Thut Irocr trade relations with Great
llritain and the United States would immediate]*- benefit thlB country:
3i Tlml miller existing circumstances and tho
poculiur uiituro of tho country mining machinery should he allowed to come In free of duty:
1. That the natural resources of the country
should bo the Iirsl to be developed:
5. That in orde- to accomplish this cud iho
country should be opened up,, tho rlvcroiuade
navl lulilc, nnd Increased fneillties for com-
inunleiitioii nnd transportation titt'onlcd:
6. That the mail and other contracts lot by

LIBERAL PLATFORM
Adopted iy the National
1011,
OTTAWA, JUNK, \m.
\\Y, thu Li I w ml party nf Ciinada, in
ronviMition ti^oi»l>l«I» declare;
I. -Freer Trade Reduced Taxation.
That the cuntouiu tiirllF of the Dominion
fhoiild be based, not* an it i* now, upon tho pro-
uetive principle, hul upon the requirement h of
hn public scrrlf-o;
That the exf-sting tarlll', founded upon an un*
sound principle, und utfed, as it ha» lieen by the
liovermiioiit, an a corrupting agency wherewith
\o keep thoniHclvcR in otnoc, has developed
inMiiupolk's, trusts and combination!- j
Ithnsdoeruased the value of farm and other
(andcq properly;
It has oppressed the mosses to the enrichment
pf n few;
Jt has checked hum Iteration ;
It has caused a grout loss nf population ;
I has impeded commerce;
It has dlflcr.ni.Uft.lQd against Ureal Hritnhi.
|n these and in many dthorwaj-R It hasoeea-
pliinei! great puhlic and private injury, all of
which evils must continue to grow in intensity
as long as tbo present tariff system remains in
force.
That the highest interest! of Canada demand
ji removal of lids obstacle to our country s progress hy the adoption of a sound tisud policy,
which, while not doing injustice to any clash,
will promote domestic and foreign trade, ami
hasten the return of prosperity to our people;
That to that end the tariff should be reduced
to the iteeeds of honest, economical and efficient
government;
That it should be so adjust ed as to make free,
or to hear as lightly as possible upon, the neees-
r* tries-of life uml should he so arranged us to
iiruiuolc freer trade with Iho whole world, more
especially with Ureal Britain and the united
^ talcs.
Wc believe that the results of the protective
system have grievously disappointed thousands
iif persons who honestly suppnrted It, and Hint
t e country, in the light of experience, is now
prepared lo declare for a sound tlscul policy,
The Issue between the two political parlies on
t his question Is now clearly defined,
Tho Uovornmcnt themselves admit the failure of their fiscal policy, and now profess their
willingness Ui make some changes; hut (hey
say that such changes must be eased only on
the principle of protection,
Wc denounce tho principle of protection as
radically unsound, and unjust lo tlio musses or
the people, and we declare our cotiv|etinn that
any taril) changes based on thut principle must
tail to afford any substantial relief to the bur
dens under which Ihe country laboi>.
This issuo we unhesitatingly accept, and upon it we await with the fullest eoptldenee the
Verdict of tho electors of t'anada,
2.   Enlarged Markets  Recjpt'oslty.
'('hpt having regard to tho prosperity of Can
ado and the United .Stales us adjoining eouii-
tries, with many mutual interests, it Is desir-
jihlo that there should he the mosl frlendlj
relations and 'broad and liberal trade intercourse between them;
That the Interests alike of tliu Dominion and
oi the Kiiinlro would'ho ipjorlnlly advanced
liy t ho establishing of mi(Hi roliit \u\\h;
That the period of t|\o ojd rwiliroeity treaty
was one of marked orosperlfy to the Drills!)
North American colonics;
That the pretext under which tho Uuvern-
meut appealed lo the country In I MM respecting
negotiation fora treaty wilh the United .Stales
war* misleading and dishonest and Intended to
deceive tho electorate;
That no sincere etbirl has been made by Ihem
to obtain a treaty, but thai, on ihe contrary, it
in manifest thai Ihe picsenl Uoveriuneiit, 0011
nulled us they are liy monopolies and combines, are nor desirous of securing such u
tl'euty;
Tlml the first step towirils obtaining Ihe end
iu view, is Is lo plaeo a parly iu power who are
•ilH'orely desirous uf promoting a treaty on
|iTiiin honorable to Isith countries;
That a fair and liberal reciprocity [rent}
would dovolup Ihe greal natural riWurcos of
Canada, would enormously liicrcusc [\\v (rude
aid ciiuimcrco lielwoeu (ho two euunlrles,
would lend lo eneuuruge fi'lcmlly relations bo-
Iwoen fhe two peoples, would (oumvv pinny
cuuscs which have In the past (irovuked irritation and trouble to the govern menu uf both
. nnil ne**, and would promote (low kindly
r.latloiisbotwoon the Kninlre and (he Uenuhlie
wliicli alfunl the best gunhuitec (or pence and
prosperity;
That the Liberal mrty \i, \mmy\y\ to enter
into uegollntions with a view tu obtaining such
ji treaty, including a well considered list of
mannfncltired articles, and we are satisfied
that any treaty so arranged will receive the
jissent of Her Mnjesl)* ("overiunent, without
whono approval no treaty can be made,
3.  Purity of Administration  Condemn
Corruption,
That the Conyep! tap Moroii the nrou corruption In the nmimuciiicnt and expenditure of
puulle moneys wh(cfi for years post has existed
under lbe rule of the Conservative tAtti. and
(ho revolutions of which by [bu different narliiii
jnontary eninuilt'tccs of inquiry have brought
dlsgia.o upon the fair name of Canada,
Tbe Uovernmciit, which profit ort puHUca'ly
by these expenditures of public inoneys, oj
which the people of Camilla have boon do-
(wilt led, una which, nevertheless, have never
p.inlshed Ihe guilty parties, must be hold responsible for ihe wrongdoing, We arraign
' o Govormiutlt for retaining in office n Mm
er of tlie ('.own proved to have accepted very
(urge e Milributioiih of money fnr election
purposes lyom the {uniis o(u railway company.
which, while paying the political contributions
to him, a member of the QoVOrnpiept, with one
hand, uus receiving UoveriiiUQIitsubsidies with
the other.
The conduct of tho Minister and the approval
of his colleagues after the truth became known
to Ihem are calculated to degrade Canada In
the estimation of tbo world and deserve tin
severe condemnation of the people.
4.  Demand Strictest  Economy  Decreased
Expenditure.
We oannot but view wiih alarhi the large
increase cf the public debt and of the controllable annua) expenditure of Ihe Dominion and
the consequent undue taxation of tho people
under the Governments that have boen continuously in [lower since 1878, and we demand
tho strictest economy in the administration of
the government of tne country.
5.-Responsible Government- Independence
Oi Parliament.
That the Convention hat by the
aol ion of Minister;, and ti ers in Par
liament, in one cftW in % ■■'■' charges
were made against a Ml, the Crown,
Investigation was altogether refused, while in
another ease the oliarcoa preferred were altered
and then referred to a commission appointed
upon tho advice of the Ministry, contrary to
the wol settled practice of Parliament; and
this Convention atHrniH:
That It Is the ancient and undoubted right of
the House of Commons to inquire hitoul. inat-
tersof public expenditure, nud Intoull charges
of misconduct in office against Ministers of the
Crown, and the reference of such matters lo
royal commissions created upon [he advice of
lbe accused is at variance with the duercspon-
slblllly of Ministers of Ihe House uf Commons, and lends to weaken (he authorlly of tho
House over the l^cculivc Uovcrnmcnt. and
this Convention affirms that the powers of the
people's representatives in Ihis regard should
on all lilting occasions he upheld.
0.  Tho Land for the Settler Not for the
Speculator.
Thul lu the opinion of Ihis Convention the
sales of public lands of (ho Dominion should be
lo actual setllers only, and nol to speculators,
ii j  reasonable terms of settlement, and In
such ureaii as can he reasonably uccupled and
cultivated by the settler.
7.  Oppose the Dominion Franchise Act-
Favor the Provincial Franchise.
That the Kraiichise Act slnee its Introduction
has cost (ho Dominion Treasury over u mil ion
of dollars, besides entailing a heavy expenditure to both political parties;
That each revision involves au additional
expenditure of a furl her quarter of a million:
That this expenditure bus prevented an
annual revision, ns origlna ly ltilendeded, in
Ihe absence of which young voters entitled lo
the franchise have, in numerous instances, been
prevented from exercising their natural rights;
That it has fnjlod to secure uniformity, which
was the prlnolnal reason assigned for its introduction ;
That It has produced gross abuses by partisan
revising barristers appointed by the Uovernmciit of the day;
Thul ils provisions are less liberal than thflRG
already existing in many Provinces of the Dominion, ami that in the opinion of ihis Covon*
tion the Act should be repealed and we should
revert to the Provincial B ratlohlso,
8. - Against tho Gerrymander-County Boundaries Should bo Preserved,
Thai by the Gerrymander Acts, the electoral
divisions for tbe return of members to the
House of Commons have been so made as to
prevent u fair expression of the opinion of the
country at the general elections, and to secure
to the party now in power a strength out of ull
proportion greater than the number of electors
supporting Ihem would warrant, To put un
end to this abuse, to make Iho House of Commons u fair exponent uf public opinion,nnd to
pfoservc the historic continuity of counties, it
Is desirable thnt In the formation of electoral
divisions, county boundaries should he pre*
Hppvcd, and that In no ease parts of different
counties should ho put In one electoral division
9,-The Senate Defective-Amend the
Constitution.
The present constitution of the Senate is
Inconsistent witli the Federal principle in our
system of government, and is in other respects
defective, as il makes the .Semite Independent
of the people and uncontrolled by the public
opinion of the country, and should he so amended as to bring il into harmony with the principles of popular government.
10.   Question of Prohibition   A Dominion
Plebiscite.
That whereas nubile attention is at present
much directed to the consideration of the
admittedly great evils of intemperance, it Is
desirable that the miud of the people should
be clearly ascertained on the quest ton of Pro
hibit inn by means of a Dominion Plebiscite,
