Tbe member for South Kootenay,
Mr. Hume,in the Legislative Assembly
last week presented to tbe House certain statistics shewing tbe utter un*
fairneee of the present diatribution of
constituencies. Tbe statistics are accurate aa tbey are taken from tbe last
general election returns and we now
present them to our readers ae an object lesson of tbe utter disregard tbe
Government bad for the principles of
justice in electorial distribution, and
the high state of perfection it bad attained in the art of gerrymandering,
when it passed the last redistribution
act.   Here are the statistics :

These twenty-four districts bad at
tbe last election 23,176 electors and returned 33 members, the present number
of the House, 22 members for the Gov
eminent and 11 against it. The
House's composition is, that the 22
Government members represent 11.852
eleetore, while 'be 11 Opposition members represent 11,828 electors. Is
there any person under tbo sun, who
has any moral conviotione, wbo can
attempt the justification of each a
system of gerrymandering ae is hen
presented.     ^P^^^
But this is not all. Here an soma
other statistics of a more condemuable
character. Let ns contrast the Island
constituencies which are 9 in number
with those ot tbo lower mainland
which an 6 in number and then will
be found some startling discrepancies.
The Island constituencies an Viotoria
City, Nanaimo City, North Victoria,
South Victoria, North Nanaimo, South
Nanaimo, Cowicban-Alberni, Comox
and Esqulmait, who possess 8,977
electon and ntnrn 14 members. The
lower mainland constituencies are Vancouver City, New Westminster City,
Delta, Chilliwack, Dewdney and Richmond, wbo possess 8,642 eleotors and
only ntnrn 8 members. Eleotors ponder on theee flguree.study and inwardly digest tbem. Could it be possible
for anything to be more grossly unfair
than the last redistribution aet ol tba
Government. Contrast Comos and
Esqulmait. It takes precieeiy two
eleetore in Comox to be worth one in
Esqniiualt. Nest gaoe on tbe two Na*
naimoe -North and South. It takes
almost three electors in tho North eon-
stituency to be worth one in the South
Comparisons ot thie  kind may be
odioue to the preaent Government but
they mnat be startling and intereeting
to  our readers and-: we Shall pureae
them  a little further.     Let us leave
out  the oity  constituencies  on  the
Island and lower mainland and deal
witb   the country constituencies and
you find that tbe 3,190 eleeton In the
country  constituencies  ot the Island
nturn 9 members while   t*W;8,'i��*l
electors in the country constftuthcieij
ot i the lower mainland nturn 4' -hi
ben; thw 350 electors on the Islan.
have jfieaome political power and**-influence ae  860 eleetore on the lower
mainland, and 6 electors in tbe Delta
constituency  an only equal to one in
Esqulmait.    We need not present any
mon statistics or pursue tbe theme
any further to convince our most impartial readen that the Government in
framing and  passing the laet redistribution aet deliberately gerrymandered
the constitueneiee to eecunitsowu
ends  and  purposes, and succeeded in
doing ao.    To nccuse tho government
ot anything else  would be to accuse
tbem of being so hopelessly  ignorant
ol  the constituencies and the number
ot eleetore that it did not know what
it waa doing.   This would be the most
ebaritable construction  to  put upon
many of their actions.   But. ignorance
excuses no one���when means for knowledge  eiist.     But be ae it may���this
Government muet go, and we only
hope - that  before  it  goes  its moral
obliquity  will  not  be eo blunted but
that it will make an attempt to bring
in and pass a (ainr redistribution bill,
and thus undo  part ot tbe wrong It
baa dene.

The veracity of three members of the
Legi-lative Assembly ia at stake, and
who ie to bo believed*- They an how-
two to one. The leader ol ihe
Opposition- the member tor West
Yale, and the member for Dewdney
aaaert that the Hon. G. B, Martin,
Chief Commissioner or Lands A Works
and member for North Yale has broken
the pledge: he gave that he would resign his portfolio should any measure
for a money bonus or guarantee in aid
ot tbe British Pacific schema be
brought down' by the Government.
The Hon. Mr. Martin denies he has
broken hie pledge.
During the debate on the second
reading of the Railway Loan Bill, Mr.
Semlin, tha leader ot tha Opposition,
pointed out tha peculiar position of a
number of members supporting the
government, particularly Hon. Mr.
Martin, who owed his position in the
government to the fact that ha pledged
himself to oppose any aid to the British Pacific. Mr. Martin interrupting
wid 'No, no." Whereupon llr. Bern*
Iin reiterated tha statement and then
nad a memorandum ot a meeting held
at Mr. Mara, honaa in Kamloops at
which Mr. Martin, Mr. Mara, Mr,
Macintosh, Mr. Semlin and others
wen present. At tbat moating Mr,
Martin pledged himself to oppose any
aid to the British Pacific
At the close of tho debate the Hon.
Mr. Martin aaid he wished to contra-
diet Mr. Semlin and an untruthful
telegram from Kamloops which had
appeared in tha Tinea and whioh waaj
published aa a political dodge* Ho had
not broken hie pledge. Ho had not
promised that ht would oppose any ae*
alitanct to the Britiah Paelfto. What
ha had promised wu that if tho legislature wm asked for 124,000 a year
for 16 y-rsre to aid tbo Britiah Paeific,
ho wonld oppose tbt granting ot tueh
Tht matter haa not ended hen bathe following letter hat appeared
in the Victoria Times:
To the Editor:-At the meeting at
Kamloopf to which reference wat made
j-aotorday in tht bouse by Mr. Semite.
Mr; Martin pledged blnltell to resign
hit portfolio should any mtaamt fort
money bonus or guarantee in aid of the
British Paciflo scheme be brought down
by the government, reserving to himself the right to acquiesce in any further land grant. We made a memorandum in writing of the terms of Mr.
Martin's pledge on the same day. Mr.
Martin had evidently no written memorandum to refresh bit memory, and
hia statement last night that be wat

HflO.OOQ iii' Sot correct. Then wen
other '' getrtUltfen present, personal
friends-'.* Mf, Martin, and politically
oppoted to ourselves, whose recollection of what Mr. Martin did pledge
himself to ia likely to be lett biassed
than hit.
Viotoria, April 16.
Hera it a dietinet acoutation againtt
tht Hon. Mr. Martin containing a mott
serious charga���twofold in itt character���that ht violated a dittlnot pledge,
and that he uttered a deliberate untruth. We hope tbe honorable member will clear hit character of this
grave accusation,
before he built. Make mining a legiti
mate business and not a apeouwi-ive
one and the reward ,will come in increased work, good living and a time
of prosperity. Theee who make a
basinets of mining intelligently, succeed, while failures aa a rule come
from want ot knowledge and bad management, Develop the mine firtt;
find out how to work your on, if good
enough, then put in yonr machinery.

At the beginning of the present nign
the British possessions in Africa comprised only tba Cape Colony proper,
inoluding Natal, in the Soutb, and
several settlements on the Gold Coast
snd Guinea on tbe West, with an area
of little over a quarter of a million
square miles, and a population of a
million and a half. They now comprise, exclusive of Egypt, an ana of
nearly two millions and a halt square
miles, with a population estimated at
not lets than forty-four millions, Tbey
constitute in all about one-quarter of
the whole African Continent.'
Tht imports and exports of the British African territories amount in all to
forty-five millions sterling In value annually.. Almost the whole of this
trade ie in British hands. It ia "equal
to about one-fifteenth of the total trade
of the United Kingdom, and ia tun to
grow immensely. -

been larger if tbe advice and recommendation of Sir George Gny, a former
Governor of Cape Colony and Lord

Him After All Other Treat_r-at Failed.
From the Echo, Wi.iii'ton, Out.
The Echo presents to its readers the
following plain statement ol fact,with
the simple comment that a medicine
that can perform so remarkable a cure
is simply invaluable, and it is no wonder that the aggregate ol its sales
throughout the country is enormous.
I, Richard B. Collins, hereby make
the following statement, which can be
confirmed by any number of witnesses
in this lection of the country. I first
began to complain ubout five years
ago. I had then been working in a
fish thanty, and was wet almost tbe
whole time, summer and winter. I
wat then confined to the house for
three months. This was my first attack and. op getting better I commenced
work again the first of the following
February and continued at it until thi
next January when I took a much
worse attack. Thedoctors pronounced
It rheumatism and after treating me
|or that disease until about the lust of
The First Baster Hay,
May, tbey discovered that my trouble
W is disease of tbe hip joint, and advised to go to an hospital. I went to
Toronto and stayed in the hospital
five weeks and then returned home.
I. however, did not recover, and was
compelled during tbe following summer to go back to the hospital where I
remained three months, getting worse
all the time. I was told I could not
be cured and when I left was only able
ta walk by the aid of crutohes. I then
came home and was not there long before I was taken to my bed. I continued in tbis state until January following, when I was advised by several
friends to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
I took their advice and before I had
finished the fifth box I began to improve, and by the time I bad completed
a doxen boxes I wa: able to walk without crutches,and have never used them
since. I was able to do light work in
a short time, and in January last 1897
J commenced working in the woods
and have no trouble from tbe hip unless over-exerted. During the last
three years I have spent 8300.00 in
doctors' bills, and medicines, trying
ererything recommended, but without
nny good results until I took Dr. Wil-
i- ims' Pink Pills, to which \ owe my
restored condition, us thu doctors gave
up all hopes of ever seeing tuo out of
lied alive and well. \ mav say that
before I began taking Pink Pills during iny last attack. I put in many a
piglit so bad that I never expected to
be alivp in the morning.

When  suddenly   the earth  beneath them
While on the gourds befell n dondly fenr
'Twns then the four amid those sounds of awe
Saw a winged angel drop from far above
To roll away the white sepulchral wall
" Fear not," ho snid, in accents sweet and low
'Nor longer tarry. Look within the tomb
Where   lies   supinely  your sweet-scented
For He whrjm lntoly it. hnd there emlirneed
Has, like Lazarus, arisen from the dead,"
Then fell they on their knees in prayers of
And when they rose again, close nt their side
The Fosnrrected .Testis stood, ns once in life
Before them, radlent with celestial light,
Then Mary, with glnd impulse, strove to grasp
The hand of her Kabhonli hut He waved
Away lhe loving Impulse ns He said:
"Take not thy hold on Me, for not as yet
Hnve I ascended to Onr Father God I
'Tis nt. His throne that tlion nnd 1 must meet.
Meanwhile depart, nrol My disciples warn
They'll find Me soon in Mine own Galilee."

enlargement of the heart for nearly leu years
I doctered with best yihysi.iiiis and tried
numerous remedies with very little benefit.
In our local papers I noticed Dr. Agnew's

The use of the pronoun "we" by
newspaper writers is frequently confusing to the public mind. An exchange gives the following lucid definition ^ Tlie editorial "we" has a
variety of applications. For instance
when you read we are behind with our
work it means the whole office force,
even to the devil. If we are having a
boom, the town is meant. We received
over seven million emigrants last year

on any European power who will side
with Turkey in this war. The consciences of the people of France and
Britain are aroused and their Governments will not again commit the fatal
mistake they made in 1855 and side
with the Turk. ' Italy is too closely

her to make a false move,
The old man as the Turkish Sultan

constantly gives rise to vexatious
questions, none of which France wiil
submit" to arbitration. There are
about 1000 French fishermen on the
coast as auniiist about 14,000 Newfoundland fishermen; but tbe produce
of the latter is being driven out of the
markets of the world by the heavy
bounty whicli the French Government
pays to its fishermen���about one-half
the market value of the fish. The fish
goes largely to all the Roman Catholic
conulries, and the shipments have
fallen off so largely ae in some i-s-es to
amount to one-half. The Frem-h fish
ermen not their bait in Newfoundland
waters nnd require to have it by ths
first of Msy. The Bait Act prohibits
the taking Of any bait, or pulling a
seive in the water before the middle of
May. A protest has bean made by the
French Counsul to the Imperial Government, but the Colonial Secretary
although expressing a fear that the enforcement of such en Act might cauae
trouble, has stated, tlie Home Government would heaitate to disallow the
Aot. Tbe French fishermen are seeking to evade it. The local revenue
cutters are mifor -ing it by seizing the
bouts along with their crews who are
catching halt in the prohibited wntere,
The St. Pierre authorities have asked
for French war ships to protest the interests of its fishermen, while instructions have been sent to Bermuda, tho
headquarters of the British West India Meet, for three war vessels to proceed to Newfoundland at once to assist
the Revenue Cutters in enforcing the
Newfoundland Bait Act. The warships are now on tbeir way.

1. H Worth Whiter
Is it
Mr. Smith,- M,P.P.i for WestlfUl*
looet, hus introduced in tlie B,C. Legislature an act to amend the Mineral.
Aet of 18911. The draft net submitted
contains very desirable changes in the
existing law, but what portions of it
will bncoine law it is hard to say.
The chief ch.ii.-rut which it is sought
to make are as follows: Any free
miner or company of miners holding
adjoining claims not exl-ekdinq
HioiiT in Niivni5.it shall on giving notice to the Gold Commissioner or Recorder, be allowed to do on one or
more claims; the worl: required rftob.;.
tain a certificate of work for each
claim. Under the present law ..the-
number of claims thut may be held in
this way ia unlimited.
Section 26 of the present act is
sought to be repealed an I the new
section deals with the surface rights
of holders of mineral claims under
Crown Grants and records, giving the
holders only such rights (including
tbe use of timber thereon) as are essential to the working of the claim, tbe
remaining surface rights being vested
(u the Crown
The new act slso provides that the
coat of a survey for Crown Grant .hall
be considered as work done on the
claim also,,.that: the owner .of any
claim who bat. had his claim surveyed
within one. year from the date of the
record of bis claim or if thc'claiiu was
recorded before the passing of the
amending not, then il surveyed within
a year from the passing of tbe new
get the cost ol tbis money not exceeding f 100 shall becounted as work done
on thit claim.
Another provision is that the lawful holder of a Crown Grant of a
mineral claim issued under tbe provisions of thit act shall, in cases where
such mineral claim hat been located on
watte lands of tbe Crown or on lands
pot already lawfully occupied for other
(ban mining purposes, be eutitled to
receive a Crown Grant of all the surface rights of such mineral claim on
payment to tbe Government of British
Columbia of the turn of five dollars per
acre for such land, and of, the tee of
live dollars for the Crown Grant.
There is also a clause providing that
no free miner shall be entitled to any
interest in any mineral claim which
hat been locate! nnd recorded by any
other free miner unless he has a written agreement sinned by the parties to
thit agreement slating the particular
interest he is entitled to iu such mineral claim.
Th|t will bo the. means of putting a
ttop to the. salting up'of oil) sorts of
adverse claima baaed upon verbal arrangements made between miners ns to
the shares each slmll have in claims.
Thia is a iriosiAi -eful provision and
Should certainly become law.
Another secti.-n ilirows tbe whole
onus of proof upon a person setting up
any kind ol adverse claims to a mine.
Thit also will have the effect of discouraging vtxatieus litigations reapec
ting advene claims.
Sections 10 and 11 of the present
act it is propped to repeal and thut
relieve owners nnd contractors of their
liability to pay the annual license fee

Rossland, B.C., April 91.���"fetter-
day morning at 2:30 a gang of laborera
on tbe Toad Mountain railway, asleep
in a tent 8 miles down tbe line from
Rossland, ware overwhelmed bv a
slide. Six ot tbe men are dead, oue it
dying and tht othtra will recover.
The tent was on a gentle slope and no
expectation of a slide was entertained.
One of ,the men was awakened by a
noise, which he took to be a car oil the
track and got up to investigate. He
went down tbe track and had only
proceeded a few feet when tbe elide
came down' comepletely covering the
tent. There wat some mow in the
tlidt, but the'-main mats wat composed of rocks, dirt and trees. The survivors t\t once'left for Rossland on the
engine of the work train which happened tobe on theeide track near by,
Or.' Bowes at once left for the scene
and in an hour, a big force wat at work
trying to locate the men. It seems a
miracle that any escaped. One man
was found pinned down by a tree, bnt
was practically uninjured; another
who had been asleep under t kitchen
table wat taved by that piece of furniture. The namei of the victims are
not obtainable at tbe present Writing.
A Bmlleol-Conservatlve Government.
Differences of opinion exist not only
in the Conservative party in tbe Dominion, but also in tbe Conservative
party in the Mother Country. Mr,
Thomas Gibson Bowles, M. P., for
Lynn Regis, who held a subordinate
post in tbe former Conser/stive Government, thus writea about the present
"Tlie present House of Commons,
with a great Conservative majority
absolutely unchecked by anything like
effectual criticism on the part of the
united, opposition, seems destined by
the ironv of fate to become known as
the most revolutionary of the century.
With tlie approval and support of the
most powerful 'Conservative government ever known, the House has sue*
cesively accepted and affirmed the
principle of female suffrage, of a criminal court of appeal, and now of the
law of evidence bill. It baa passed
the second reading of the bill making
woman iuto a man, the bill tb destroy
the jury, and the bill to bang a man
on his own evidence, What is worse
these revolutions have, one and all,
been introduced with the utmost
lighthesrtedness, -proposed with the utmost levity, discussed with the utmost
inadequacy and decided by the merciless use of closure."

The   Haling Passion.
A reader of a ctntemoorary vouches
for tbe truth of the following story: ���
" A oouin of mint, who is a diaper,
recently came to stay with me for a
week or twd. On the night of hit arrival we retired to bed about eleven. In
the night I wat awakened by an unaccountable tugging at the bottom of
my nightshirt. I wat about to remonstrate with him, when my garment
was suddenly ripped up tbe back from
the hem to the neckband, and a business-like voii e exclaimed,' Three vai-ds
at two and a half- sevenpence halfpenny. Anything else today, Mill?'
And took a lot of shaking to make my
sleepy friend realiae that I watn't taking any."
A farmer, notoriout for hit temper
and remarkable mean nets, wit trying
to engage a lad to assist on tbt farm,
