criticism of the propos.il to give the
Boundary Creek district—or whjil -
probably is rvally meant, the Boundary
district—« separate representative in
the local 'Legislature, ch.iracteriied
this proposal a* "most extraordinary,
absurd and ridiculous." Il may lie 111
opportune lime to remind Mr. Martin,
•nd others tbat this is not simply a
proposal of tbe present gnvrrniuetit.
It is more : it is one of liie planks
of the platform adopted by an
Opposition convention [that is of
suppotters 1 if the party then in opposition, heid at Kosslalitl j.i>t previous
to the last Provincial election, wh'ch
platform Mr. Jas. M. Martin, member
for this dislrict, wjis elected upon.,
The proposal ramsins the siine. it is
Mr, Joseph I——tin who hns changed.
He did not dissent bum it then, so
why now? The reason is plain. Then
he posed &s a luyal s.ipp.rler of his 1
party, now he is a political renegade.
Of what rslue then is such criticism,
coming from one who took no ex*'
ceptioti to the prvposed legislation until after he bad fo.s-iken his party :
Surely there are men tti tiie present
Opposition who regard consistency as
a virtue, even in politic*, and who
will rwte a turncoat socurdingly.
