It ;< the very foundation and underlies tbe fabric nf responsible government. Its piinriples  ���������acknowledged in the revolution of  KiSh, when popular government, reallj  began, and fuilber strengthened by  the. Reform Act's of IS32 and 1S07���������aie.  to-dicy recognized as the very essence  of constitutional libeity, and AvithOut  it govern inent would be but despotism.^  Three, forms of government are generally acknowledged : government 'by  one man, monarchy; ;i few men, aris-  tocracv; and,, by many uien, democracy; the numerical basis being the proportion of the governors to the governed. In Great Britain all three systems  are combined in Unit happy spirit of  adaptation so evident in its unwritten  ancl elastic constitution': but'ni Greater  Biitain, where no evolution from feau-  dali-un was experienced and where history began in the more.democratic age,  the. democratic system of government''  was,everywhere adopted, and equality  of repiesentation (which is'based on  equality of voters) admitted.     t      ''���������  Representation   has its anomalies, of  course,  as .every  system   has,   but in  newer countries   they should be fewer  than'in  the old.    Yet, as a tnatteiuof  " i  fact,    the   most, glaring  nnoimilies  in  in this matter iiii ve been furnished hy  some of the newer countries -speaking  the English tongue, the* tongue'that  litst made representation a principle  of government. It has1 remained foi  designing politicians in ' younger  count ries to tamper with this greatest,  of political lights for their own advantage, and iiinke it a.s great ,-in evil as  an\- t vrnnnoiis absolutism... It is'not  necessary to-go outside of British  Columbia'*tn (ind a case of gross perversion of this principle. Merc, in this  young provice, the .brightest gem in  the crown of Greater Britain's Queen,  this fundamental right has been most?  shamefully abused, as a short, study'of  the distribution of representation will  show.  To begin with -the redistribution  measure, of 1S00, which gave 7,111  voters m one group of constituencies  10 representatives; to another gioup  with G.55(J voters but six topresenta-  tives. and vvbitb was declared by the  government to lio temporal y and un-  ������atisfricloiy, a beginning can- be made  to lead up to tbe picsenl iniquitous  measure. All hough a promise vvas  made, so it is said, to bring down a  redistribution ine-sure aftei the census  it vvas noi introduced until 1S01, the  date of the Act undei- which the people  of this province are now represented.  And what did it contain? It contained  provision lor 21 disliicts representing  i'3,175 electors and returning 33 members to the legislature: of the number  elected, 22 wei e government, siippoi ters  and 11 Opposition Jt, would lie supposed that lo ret ui n Mich a huge  majority for the government their supporters amongst the people would be  noticeably large. What are the facts?  ���������'The 22 government ineinbeis represent  11,S52 electors-, while the 11 opposition  members repieseut, 11,323 electors ; a  dilVei ence of 520 eleclcu s for a majority  of 11, or about enough voids to inuke  one seat. I low could t bis be possible?  It is like this: the smallest opposition  cuiisiiuiuicy had ."00 voters, while no  less than 11 goV.-riimc-iit stippurlei s  wen* returned fiom smaller con-ii-  I uciicies.  Another comparison: The !) island  constituencies bad 8,077 i-lecloi s, ami  returned 11 ineinbeis; ty* (j districts  of the. lovvei mainland bad 8,012 electors and l et urncd S inciiibcrs, Tb.'il is,  0 ineinbeis majority lor the government with a inajoiity  amounting only to 3.'i.'3.

This i-. the government's, idea of equality of votei s.  Theie aie oilier examples, however,  ��������� if gl.ti ing inequalities. It takes two  Coiiiox eleclois to he woith one in  Iwjiiiin.'iult, and in North Nanaimo il  takes ne.uly lluee lo equal one in  South N.iiiaiiuo.

Cowichaii-Albeini," another T.slaiid  'constituency, with 51G electors sent  two men to the House, Noith West  Kfnote.nay with 550 sent but one. Thc;  four electoral districts of Victot ia City,,  North ATictoiia, South Victoiia and  Rsquimalt, which are all close together,  with 5,995 electors have eight rep.e-  senlalives assigned to them, but Vancouver iind Westminster cities with  5199 electors have half the number  only. Esquiniault and Lillooet each  have the same representation as West,  Kootenay. , ��������� '  -These instances of the discriminative  character of (,the picsenl distribution  of seats should be sullicient to show  the shameful' way the. govc-i-iiinent,  though nominally by the people, is  really,, not so, but government by  sectionalism and favoritism, 'for the  perpetuation of the coal'barons friends  and monopolistic ministry. They give:  a thousand independent electors in one  district one'representative aud in another give* two members' to il few  hundred toadies; so nominally is the  principle, of leprcsentatiou retained  but really .strained to ,,btcaking, point  for political advantage. Although the  government inpreseiited, counting " by  seats won, slightly over 50 per cent' of  the people and. the opposition as sjight-  ly under the same figure, the former  hjLcl G6 per cent of the representation  the latter but 33 per cent. Jt took on  tlie average 1039 electors., lo return  one opposition member but 538 electors  to send a government man to the  House.   .  Inequality of voters���������inequality of  representation, and such' i.s popular  government as it is known in British'  Columbia; this' the latest' application  of ,the system laid in a tevolution two  centuries ago. Such a slur on oui;,  national character, such. a. political  'crime must not be allowed continue  longer. Iiy almost common-, consent  it is declared to be the most important  subject 'with t vvhieh the legislative  assembly, should ' deal. The people  everywhere look to see members of the  assembly one bv one,",assert their independence, love of British fair play'  and' pride in constitutioiutWgovern-  nie.nt, ..-ind by combination compel the  government, which ha's perpetuated  such a vicious abuse of -the people's  rights to immediately rectify it or be  ignominiou'sly turned ...out. North  Kootenay and its member, Mr. ,.T. 11.  Kellie, have done'their duty and' it is  hoped that, there will be others beside  it, and him to demand for tbe people a  restitution of their constitutional  political tights.  INTERESTING FIGURES.

For how long  at a time may the public expect a consistent argument from the Herald, eyi-  -dently noi in oife'issue. Rveiyone will  remember that only one; short month  ago it screamed for strict party lint's*,  calling on Conservatives u, save this  province from the fate of eastern ernes  which were only ide-shovvs to the  Grit power at. Ottav.a. Tbe is-me was  a Dominion and national one on which  it vvas going to lake ,i eleteriiiined  stand. The Liberals were eveiy one  to vote for their platfcn in and win the  countiy for their pin ly, and that was  the hot toin of the whole thing.   '  Now, wlia I. does it. say? Party lines .���������into be drawn only in a limited sense",  even secretly, perhaps ami in such a  way as will allow" Consei'-val ives to  vote against the government,' and Lib-  eiaK. for it. What a ..despicable climb-  down this is. Where is the alleged  cnu������e of the I Iei aid's change gone now.  Surely if t he Grits wei e at tempt ing lo  capture lbe piovince for theii parly  every Liberal would have the word to  vote and work, for t he si ra ighl. ticket  only; yet I his the Herald does nut, now  expucl, and anticipate*-, seeing many  Liberals vote for the gov eminent  which they vveie���������il shucked ut lii'sl--  going to capture al, all costs. Asa  matter of fact lion. Mi. Turner is today supported by Liberals ciiouglr-iir  dcl'cnt him as mailers stand; so thiil,  if the scheme was a party one lo  capt nre ' he machinery of the 'province  il. could lie done at, any moment.

The follow-  ������ .     i  ing figures of husines.Mes.not submitted  before will further piuve tlu-stai emenl,  and will make intei esling reading to  those watchufg the growth of the-  town:  One of the inst ittil ions closely identified with Revelstoke progress is the  C.P.R., which is centralizing the divisional a (fairs of its Pacific section as  much as possible at this* point. The  Mam. is able to oll'ei slime figures of  this company's'business which go far  to show the number of people coming  aiid going through here and also the  inciease in t rade.  In ISiXi the passenger 'business at  Revc'l.stoke'aiiiounted to about $25,000;  in.lSOT il almost doubled, bi'i'ng .$ 18,000.  'Tn 1S0G lbe earnings on freight shipped  tn here were, about $103,i)00, and earnings iiii. "freight shipped from bete  about $15,000. In 1S07 tlio ' increase  was ve.i y nearly, as great as in the  passenger department," 'being' 'about  75 per cent. The earnings on freight  shipped to here were $13S,000, and  from here $24,000. These figures represent local trade only and take^no account of through freight.  The Dominion Express Company's  ollice also r shows '-a great, increase of  business'. On freight business alone,  amounting t'o ' $11,000, there wai?, ii'  giand increase of 15 per cent, over 1S90.  In money order business tbe"increase  is almost, startling,* being no less than  170 per cent. The Revelstoke office,  being the transfer puinl for South  Koetenay, is one of the busiest,, in the  company's system west of Winnipeg.  Taking ru-toms: The imports: of  dutiable goods in ISSMi'were valued 'at,  '$15,."/!1.15;' last year they went ove������'  $G0,'000.. The duly collected yi ISOO"  was but $0,S20.03, in'lS07'it was $15,-  110.10, nn advance of 150 per ecu I. It  is a curious coincidence in these figures  that the duty collected in the hist half  of'07 equals lo accent the amount collected during the. whole of the previous  yea r.  - As in the r-iistomsfollice, so in the inland revenue department. The collections for 1800 were $2,fXio. 1.4, and for  '07 Ihey amounted 'to $5,012.51, ;i most  noticeable increase.  Tbe ore shipments were about tbe  siinie last year as in the year before,  although for three months of the year  leturiis were made via N.ikus*p. A  healthy sign iu tho shipments via  Revelstoke, however, is the inclusion  of several large shipments (one mouth  it was $12,001) fioni Noith Kootenay  mines, us t lie Lanark ami Silvei Cup.  The Lanark is temporarily closed, but  the Silver Cup'is still regularly shi*-  ping.  The mining records, too, are worth  reviewing.
