PURITY IN ELECTIONS
A remarkable sign of the  revolt of
the people ot Canada against corrup-
C1ROUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE
"Several years ago I took a late
train Irom Boston to New York,"
said a man in bus ncss in Kansas City to the News reporter. "In.the
morning 1 was awakened by the porter, who said that a robbery had been
committed on tlic sleeper during the
tion in eloetions is the conference ai&U: ml that a|, tm, passengers
now in session at   Toronto between Would have to get up.  Some one had
taken six hundred-dollar bills    Irom
representatives ol the Farmers' Association of Ontario and the Ontario
Educational Association. Tiie avowed object of this gathering is to discuss methods of purifying elections,
and it proves that there is a feeling
aroused among tho people against
the "machine" methods that havo
brought Canadian politics into disrepute, that have allowed thc finger
thc clothing ol a gentleman who occupied a berth in thc middle ol the
car. Every section had been taken
before he left Boston, and as the
train had been almost constantly n
motion il scorned certain that the
person who had committed the theft
was still in the car.
"The porter said no one had been
aboard but the passengers, and that
none-of them had left. It was propos-
of scorn tone pointer, at us and have'ed to search everybody,   A man who
ot scorn i-o w., a ^ ^ ^^ l|irecUy opposltB the one
" .tho had been robbed objected.      He
filled the breast of every right think
ing man with anger and shame. In
the main, tlie great hody of the poo-
plo are thoroughly disgusted at thc
Ircedoin with which the election laws
are disregarded, open bribery resorted to and the elector robbed of- his
vote by unscrupulous men who, by
eery sort of underhand method attempt to win a victory for their party. It is a good sign to see the
fanners, the backbone ol the country
—lor the agricultural industry is the
greatest in Canada— taking a hand
In the movement that, it carried or
properly, will snatch out'of the hands
of corrupt politicians, heelers am
bosses the conduct tit an electoral
campaign. It is no use lor onc par
ty tn accuse the other ol being llu
culprit, evil methods are pursued of.
both sides and while the people al.
low it, will continue. Let the man
who is a candidate ior office understand that these things will not lie
tolerated and very soon the evil will
be overcome. Everybody knows ii'at
frequently at a party convention it
is not the choice ol the great boil;
of men in that party who is nominated; yet it is their own fault lor
not taking enough interest m the
election to turn out in lorce to see
that they have a word in the selection ol a candidate. Indeed, many
people have come to thc conclusion
that the convention system as wrok-
ed in Canada is a failure; that the
old method of bringing out a man
by requisition gives better results.
Then the collection and dlsrrtiiolng of
a huge campaign funds attracts a lot
of human, vultures whose chicl aim is
to get hold of some ot the money; they
pretend great influence with certain
classes ot electors and secure funds
lor debauching them, while in thc
process they take good care that no
Inconsiderable amount sticks to their
own lingers. For the sake ol salcty
against an elect inn protest no accounts arc kept and there is no means
ol keeping track of how the money
goes. The publishing ofthe expenses is a larcc; people road thc modest sum set down as the legitimate
amount expended and smile al it,
well knowing that while this was
no doubt expended as published, thorp
arc many dollars devoted In other
things that it would never do to
make public. However, as .we said
Lcforc, il is tlle people who have the
remedy in their own hands, and    II
told his name and said any one
night, easily find that he was a man
it good reputation. In the meantime
roiue officers boarded the car and alter a little swearing got the money
rom the colored porter, who was
lhc guilty one.
Then tlic passenger who had relus-
rd to lie searched asked the officers to
Diamine his pockets. This seemed
strange, but ho insisted. In one in-
ide pocket they lound six hundred-
foliar bills. It was merely a coinci-
lence that he should have the same
amount ol money as the other pasr
cngcr had lost, and in exactly the
same denominations, but he knew
rlr.it under the circumstances he could
hardly establish his innocence. How
vas that lor a case ot circumstantial
evidence?"

VALUABLE POSTCARDS.
There arc a lew picture postcards
(says a writer in the World's Work)
that fetch prices' a little above their
original value, such as those taken W
the olllce.s of thc good uhip Discovery, lately returned from tho South
Pole expedition; "and a lew that have
been suppressed on political or moral grounds by governments oi vgriotis
coullineiuil countries.
The Ruusian government issued nn
edict forbidding Count Tolstoi's portrait to be used oh postcards.
The Turkish government is still
more sweeping in its prohibition; an
irade forbids any postcard to be circulated bearing tiie name nl God or
Muhomrt, any drawing ol the Kaaba
or any portrait ul a Mohamiiieiliin
woman.
In France there is a censorship in
cards. Several have been suppressed
lor oflciiccs against "gum! maimers,
ami an eye ban lo lie constantly kepi
on the cards with
on tlle cards which satirise crowned
heads.    .
One card was suppressed lor ridiculing the corpulence ol the King of
Portugal; also lor gilirs at Prince
Henry at the Netherlands and Ihe
Into Queen Draga ul Rorvla.  '
The climax was readied when the
anti-clerical government ol M. Combes had to stop the circulation ol a
card ns being deficient in revcrcneb
towards the Pope.
The most Intrinsically valuable
cards arc those"that ensure the reci
pient against accidents lor a month
lor a sum of £50,
A scries of Dreyfus cards originally
published ut It the modest price ol
one and a hall francs has since
changed hands tor £8.
Quito : probably the [anions card
said to have been sent hy the late
President Kruger when the ollicials
wrole to him, alter his (light Irom
South Africa, asking for their pay—
"Read Proverbs yli, 19-20" -would
command a lair figure il olfereil (or
sale.
"I admired that last piece you
played, professor, immensely," said
Mrs. (laswcll. "II had a kind ol
wild Ireciloni about It, yuu know, a
rort ol jvt up and go that Just suit-
rl me. Was il a composition at your
own?"
"Madam," Irigiilly responded the
eminent musician who hud been hired
for the occasion, "I won pulling a
new E string an my violin."

Acting Collector ot Customs Newbury has lined the steamer City ol

passengers Irom tlie Bteamer: Jelter-
sou, wnich, like herself, flew the Un-
iter. States flag;, at Swanson Bay»
Swanson Bay is in Canadian waters,
and a Untied States steamer has nn
right, except to save llie, to plok
! up passengers. The violation olthe
Canadian regulations was committed
: in November last, when as will be
remembered, the steamer Jefferson
bro'le the blades of her. propeller and
put into Swanson Bay. She was at
anchor there when the City ol Seattle took her passengers from her,
and carried them to Seattle without
reporting at a Canadian port. Tha
steamer Amur, of the C.P.R., passed
tlie disabled steamer within three
hours of the United States vessel,
and could have taken oil the passengers. This is the second instance
recently when the United States
steamers have been fined lor Ignoring
the rights ol Canadian craft. The
last case was thc fining ot the steamers Cottage City and Humbolt loir
towing the steamer Al-Ki when she
was disabled in Mcnzies Bay, similar assistance offered by a Canadian
vessel being refused.
