tidy beating for Ur. Bodw.ll.
It li almoit incredible that in thil age
ol general education there ihould be inch
a thing ai a ipoiled ballot. What mmt
be the condition ol the voter'! mind
when he cannot under, tand the exceedingly simple direction! lor marking hi!
ballot? W.h.v. heard it remarked
tbat Mm. votere actually got it into their
heada tbat by marking a cron oppoeite
tha nam. of a candidate it "marked him
•ft," tbat il it eipretied the voter'! disapprobation oi that particular candidate.
Thli notion hai certainly the recommendation ol nov.lty, and it alio proves
tbat th. directioni lor veten .re almoit
ai elastic in their int.rpnt.tlon ai tezti
al Scripture.
Thin wonld appear to ba only one
way oi making certain tbat th. voter
■ball not blunder, and tbat il by adopt-
ing the Australasian ayatem. The voting ii done by machinery, the only
operation 1.11 to bail and untruitwortby
humanity being the eelectiou ol the
candidate', nam.. Numbers of keji
confront the voter when be enten tbe
booth ;iach key plainly inscribed in
large type with the name ol the candidate. Th. voter wbo wiibei to vote for
Brown, lay, touchei the key, like a
typewriter key, there i. a click, a colored
ball falls into the recenticle below
Brown's name, and the key return! to
place, bnt it cannot be nud again until
tbat pirtlculir voter leaves the voting
chamber.
Tbii wonld seem to defy bumin
■tupldity, ud It anundly doei away
with ipoiled ballots, and all dishonesty.
The adoption ol the Auitralaiiin device
wonld do good In Canada.

we certainly expected better, fall. Into
one ol theworet blunder! for which
Mr. Lang spares not the rod ol con action on Mn. Gallup, who Ii evidently a
very illiterate penon. She misspells
tbe name of Uacaulay repeatedly in tbe
couru ol her book, and Ur. Lang le
justifiably angry with ber for tbii ctrc-
leuneii or ignorance, became wben one
ii writing in criticiim, one ihould be
icrupulonily exact,
But the Province baa far exceeded
•ven Mn. Gallup'i offence, and hai
miaipelled no fewer than four of th.
moit iamoui name! in Engliih literature, and not only eo, bnt all in a row,
too. The article which ii strongly condemnatory, li ii quite right and proper,
of Mre.Gallup'Bimpertinent assumptions
and blunder!, li certainly spoiled by
thoie strange mistake! regarding name!
which are familiar ai bii own (o the
lover of Engliih literature.
We may, with ill due reipect and
semi-weekly humility, as venturing to
correct a daily ol the Mainland metro
nolii, point out that the late author oi
"Tbe Faery Queen" ipelt hii name
Spenier, not Spencer; that the lamented
young creator of "Doctor Fauitni" spelt
hii with ih'e at the end—Marlowe;
that Peele, Marlowe', contemporary,
apelt hii u we have done here, and not
i'eale; that the owner ol what Milton
called the "learned lock," favoured
brevity by spelling hii name Jonson
not Johnson, and curtailing hia "Iront"
name to Ben!
Now, it may be contended that then
thing! are only trifles; but if io then
accuracy ii a trifle, and Un. Gallup, or
anybody else, may ipell lamoni names
juit al they choose or ai their careless
nen or ignorance may direct. All ol
which il offered without prejudice and
in the hope of doing good.

K. L. NO. 16,
Nanalmo, B, C, Uarch 7th, 1002.
in tbe whole world you was ill not find a
mon liberal, generous or cbnltab'e
people than what we have in our little
City ot Nanaimo. There hae never leen
a call made upon their puree lor anything like a deeervlng cause but wbat
baa been responded to ungrudaidgly*
This appllei to onr business people Bl
well ib to the working clan. But there
are times when their patience end generosity an sorely tried, and probably no
time more io than last month, Aa every
one bnowi Februaiy ii a liiort month
at belt, and then owing to the accident
ln the mine and other causes many oi na
hid but little more than hall lime, lome
none at all. Yet look at tbe drain upon
thil meagre earning!—a collection for
the benefit ol the hospital; in assessment for the Alexandria miners; a collection at the pay office, and to cap the
climax—our kind and thoughtful city
fatben deducted two big dollari for
road tax.and even for the pretent month
we wbo dig coal for a living bad to appear belore a committee for examination
and pay another big dollar Ior the privilege ol working.
There wu lome grumbling, but con
sidenng all thing!, not much. But the
lateit play on the noardi, and the one
which in my opinion, will dislocate the
back ol that patient animal relerred to
in the proverb, is tbe action ol the
Medical Committee in their present
campaign ol begging lor the benefit ol
Dr. McKechnie, wbo is, I regret to ny,
abont to leave us.
Dr, McKechnie is deservedly a very
popular man, andevery one will be lorry
to hear ol bie departure, but he ii not
in itraitened circumetancei. He gave
ui good services, and in relorn we gave
him a magnificent salary, somewhere on
an average of ,10,000 per annum lor the
past six years. To tax the limited
meana ol the people now canvaieed lor
thil purpose li little ehort of criminal,
I am much mistaken ii Dr. McKechnie
will at all thank bii cnthuiiutio but
silly Iriendi f jr their actions in tbii
milter.
I have no doubt but many ol thote
who will contribute, limply because
tbey will not like to refuse, have unpaid
accounts with their butcher and grocer.
And igain I object to this mean! ol
ibowing our ippreciation of a good and
popular man. If it ia tbe object to teat
the eiteem in which Dr. McKechnie il
held, thepreient meani is a failure, il I
have already pointed out.
Many will contribute wben canvaieed
but at the same time curse the man it il
intended to honor. The proper way
to place a paper at tbe pit head with a
notice that all wbo wlah to ibow their
regard lor Dr. McKechnie to place their
name ou the Hit with the amount thiy
wiih to donate, and by tbii meai i do
•wiy with Ibis beastly begging,
