vote, and tb-.- accompanying challenge to ihe Minister of Justice to
name a man so deprived, what becomes 0! the contention that by the
use of the thin red line upwards of
ten thousand Conservative voters in
Manitoba were disfranchised 111 the
Dominion elections of 1904^
The Opposition cannot have their
cake and eat it. They cannot keep
alive their "thin red line scandal"
and at tbe same time deny that any
voter was disfranchised. They
must cither admit fhat no scandal
or injustice resulted from the use ��� l
the thin red line, or they must, admit the necessity for an imendn en
to the election law.
Why Line Was Used.
The reasons f r the "thin rei
line" have been explained msr)
times. The Dominion constituencies in Manitoba are made up ol
portions ol as many as ten local
constituencies. .For instance, the
Dominion constituency of Macdon-
of Duf-
lerin and portions of "Morris, Assini-
1 boia, Rock wood, C.imli. Lakeside,
: Poitage, Cypress, Manitou and
I Mountain. Therefore when thi
candidate sends to the-Clefk of tin
j Court in Chanc ry at Ottawa fi
i'the voters' list tor Macdo aid, hi
receives the entire votes' list, ol
ev^ry provitjeia' c ������ ������ti.tueii y ��� hi. li
mav be iu whole or in 1 art withii
the bovjiti-sries of the Dominion
constituency.
What must be dotre ihcif?    It is
quite obviuus'thilt as only   .1 r'io- s
of some of ihe provincial constituencies   are   within   the   Dominion
onstlfueiicy, thar as to  those por?

Th* following is a. message from
Ijord Robeits to the Hoys' Brigade
qf Cornwall, Bnglandi and the advice applies with equal force to the
hoys of this country:
''I  believe  this trailing-to   be
qttyte. invaluable   to   you,   for   it
teaches  you, ta acquire  habits of
order, regularity ar\d discipline, the
possession   of which  goes  a  long
way to form a,m��u's character, and
tfcli$ve  me, boys, character  is by
fat the most important  thing to be
attended   to;   for,   however   clever
apd well educated, a man may be, if
he is wanting in  character he will
never be respected by those among
���*hom-.his lot.in life is cast, and it
\i#>u>ld be impossible for him to suc-
cje*4-,in the world.    By  character I
Uieati being in  all  respects what a
gentlemau  ou^ht- to be,  and,   remember,   boys,   when   I. use the
vford gentleman I do  not  mean a
man .of what is cabled good birth. I
?5.ean  a  mau  whq. is by nature a
gentle  man   in every sense of the
word���who is truth, upright, honest, straightforward, pure and clean
both in mind- and  body, respectful
iiH^.shedient tp superiors, and kind
and-cpnsiderate to all  with  whom
he may come in contact.    It is the
possession of these qualities which
enab}?s a ma.u-to get  Qn, whatever
njay   be   his lot in life.    I   have
lvnown,,many such  men������men who
commenced at  the very bottom of

tions which overUp, the names of
voters in tbe overlapping part must!
be stricken off; otherwise they could '
vote twice. They were strickeu. off
with a "thin red line." The men
fWhpse names were thus stricken off
were not disfranchise.!, they still
remained iu their, proper voting,
subdivision.
Tories Did Same- Thing.
The act of running a line through
a name wrongfully on the voters'
list is not confined to the Liberals,
neither is it unrecognized by the
Manitoba statutes. Sub-section 6
ot section,65. cap. 52, of the .Manitoba Election Act, 1904, provides
far such revision of the lists as follows:
"A line in black or red shall be
drawn by the revising judge or barrister in the middle or through the
name of any person struck off the
ljst of electors or from the list ol
applications appearing in. the registration register, but in such a manner that the name can be readily
11 read and distinguished."'
The only practical difference is
that the Liberals used a red line,
and the Conservatives selected a
hlack,one, fgr the lists were revised
and changed by the Conservatives
previously iu the same manner as
that adopted by the Liberals, with
the .exception of the black line being used instead of.the red.oue.

What tfae Word "Grog" Ohh From.
The word "grog" has a curious history.
It comes in a roundabout way from the
French grosgrain, of which our English
"grogram" is a corruption, meaning a
stuff of coarse and heavy texture. Bluff
old Admiral Vernon, who commanded the
English navy just before our war of independence, wore brooches made of this material and was nicknamed from that cir-
sumstunoa "Old Grog." He used to have
bis men mix water with the rum that wus
always served to English sailors as part of
their rations, and hence uny dram mixed
with water came to bo culled "grog" und
tbo place where such things are sold a
"groggecy."���Miss E. F. Andrews ln St
Nicholas.
