There is an impression abroad that
if Mr, Cotton could bo caught and reduced tn a condition of roason, nome-
thing useful might bo made of him.
Wo do not know how that would bo,
and are reluctant to express an opinion. Certainly as master of tbi' present Government in tact, although not
111 name, ho is never likely to achieve
any grent eminence for himself or good
lur the Province. Ho may hang on
until it goes to pieces, in the hope
Ihat ho will bo advanced to first plaoe-,
but we think it extremely doubtful if
tbere will ever be a Cotton party
strong enough to maintain him as
leader of a Government. Continuing
in his present 000r86, therefore, it is
hard to see how ho can bo of service
lo any one, And that is the pity of it,
for he is undoubtedly a man ol much
ability. He wus drawn at last in the
debate on the Address, and made n
moat readable speech. He left Mi-
Martin in a worse 0(milition than he
had been in before, and put that Dead-
man's Island affair in a light that re-
lb-clod not >\ little cmlit on himself.
if his argument, in other matters was
specious, it wns also Ingenious. There
Is a   waste  of   intellectual   force   nnd
oapaoity ns long as this man is allowed
to ruu wild.
Yet if ho wore to he headed oil'  and
lamed into usefulness, there would immediately aiise the dillieulty ns to what
to do with him.    Wo  believe  then' is
uu doubt that in the  estimation of the
majority   in   this    Province Air. lor
nor, of nil the men at present  iu   public life, would be the safest to   follow.
He is un nble   man, of  good, practical
business  instincts,  and of unquestioned probity.    Just now   ho is  leader of
the Opposition in the Houso,but we dn
not know tbat he would  corn to accept
tbo responsibility of   tho   Premiership
n second   time,   or  to lend a party in
lhe event 01' u dissolution.    The Miner
is in tho happy situation 01   not being
burdened with  tho  eonlionees of   any
party.   What  the politicians   hnve in
view,   therefore,   can only be a matter
ot   conjecture.     Notwithstanding   the
extremely critical   situation, The Unionist hns all  along  maintained   there
will be no dissolution, but thut on the
defeat of the Government, which   nny
happen any time, unother will he formed thut will   have the   OOnfldenoe ul   a
majority Of the present House,   lu such
nn event wo cniuiot  suppose   nny othei
Premtei than Mr.   Turner, nnd it   hns
occurred   lo   uh  Unit tho iiecessnry accessions to establish him  (irmly on the
Treusury benches would   include   Mr.
Cotton.    Hut  would   Mr. Cotton, who
is a mini of unbounded stomnch,   serve
under Mr. Turner? Or is it in contemplation thnt Ur.Turner and his following will bo turned ovur to Mr. Cotton."
Wo  hnve grave doubt of the expediency of the latter  supposition, But if
tho other could he realised w" believe
it would be n fortunate   thing   for the
Frovlnoe.   But whether tbe gentlemen
could bo rendered tractable snongh for
that Is a iiuostion.
Ohamblr and Veroheres, all strongly
Liberal. In tbe be-t general election
Mr. Heacsoleil was returned for
Betthier without opposition; Mi.

Gooffrion with n majority of ii'.il.
There is nothing surprising,   or sgnill-
:cunt, that llirse should hnve gone by
iiocitiniutiiii! in by elections for one bus-
The sani" remark will apply to Lot-
btniere, another Lihernl stronghold,
and in whioh two Liberals wero nominated. The Government majority
in Hint constituency In 180(1 was 40(1,
Sherbrooke, another Quebec vacancy,
went Conservative by 267. The Lib
eiuls are hotly oontesting it, nnd it is
quite on the curds they may carry it.
Should they do so, there Will bo room
to say Hint the Government's popularity in Quebec is on the increase. But
it will be belter to await the event
before boosting. The seventh constituency is Winnipeg, and the situation
respecting it is tho only one of any
significance. Unfortunately for the
organs, the significance is distinctly unfavorable to tho Government,
lu 180(1 Mr. Jamiesiin curried it by
1,117 of a majority ; lust Thursday the
Liberals did not even nominate u candidate, but surrendered the field to
Mr. E. D. Martin, who would march
afoot aorosB tho continent t" put a
spoke in Mr. Siftou's wheel.
The nominations last Thursday prove
nothing lieyoud the tact that in the
West the Liberals are divided. Shonld
Sherbrooke full to the Government ou
Thursday next, it might be token to
mean that Mr, Tarte's opposition to

But Liberal organs 111 English-speaking Canada will hardly care to go into eostneies Of delight over that.
Mr. Hall, n Viotoria member, made
n bright, sonsible speech in the debate
on the Address. Hero is his opinion
on a matter ot deep interest iu this
portion of the Province: "Tbo Eight-
Honr law had possibly been well
meant, would possibly have been well

Reference lias been made in this col
imin to Mr. Semple, of The Dnwsou
Gleaner, Speaking of his prosecution
for "contempt of court" because ho
exposed certain arooked gambling practices, he said: "Athough represented
by coimsil.permission to file affidavits,
make a defence or answer to the con-
icinpt proceedings were arbitrarily re-
fu-ed by the Judge,who sits in the Yukon, thousands of miles away from
other courts that might review many
of his acts, and summarily [ound
guilty, and lined lhe unmerciful sum
of ijl.ion, ui in default thereof undergo iinpiisionnieol in thn jail for !I0
days. Asking tho Judge for 15 minutes to obtain the amount, (1,100 being
nn uimsunl sum for nny mu.i to be
(tarrying abont his person, even Ibis
request wns denied, aud resulted in
being sent to the jail, incarcerated, iu
u cell,until the money wns brought into Court and tho fine paid, showing the
animus, malice, haste and vimlicitive-
ness of the court. " Perhaps the Minister of Justice at Ottawa will think U
worth while to make Inquiry Into the
conduct of. this Judge Canadians do
not relish his method of dispensing
justice, it imanks too much of persecution.
The Jlontrenl city charter provides
that no person whn cannot rend and
write shall be elected as Alderman, ft
is now proposed to ask the Legislature
to repeal Ihis cilnusc, nnd The Star is
exceedingly indignant thereat. It tulks
hotly of ignorant persons gelling into
the Council and making havoc, of
affairs. The Star does not distinguish
between ignorant and uneducated persons, Canada has produced same conspicuous examples of uneducated persons as among the most successful of
our business men. A mnn may be
without book learning, and yet possess
abilities of n hich order. At the Same
time, the repeal of thnt provision in
the Montreal .barter would be n retrograde step.	
Col. Baker thinks the Alien Exclusion Act is contrary to the spirit of the
"open door" pdioy for whioh Grent
Britain has declared. And every m.iu
in the Province who can boast of enlightenment enough to last him from
day to day and who has the lenst liberality of sentiment will think ns Col.
linker thinks.

the other for high. The roadway of
the preseut wharf will be utilised for
tlm former,
The wharf will be 200 feet long Ivy
186 feet, wide nl the lauding place
where freight will lie discharged. The
roadway will be IS feet wide, with
five feet on either side set apart for

not quite certain where the money
will come from, it was decided to go

on the wages question,    As heretofore, !
all contractors on  City work must nay i

Paving tlm City streets wns the next
subject of debate. Tlm City Engineer
recommended macadam, which he
roughly estimated, would cost about
|1,000 n block. He recommended n
lower layer of 8-inob stones aud an upper layer of small stones. The former
would have to be broken by hand and
the latter by a crusher. A discussion
on crushers and the cost of stone breaking ensued, and to establish this it
was decided to employ 10 men for n
week breaking stone as an experiment.
It was ulso decided lo call for tenders
for paving live   blocks, the  tenders  to
be iu by February 6.
