'"I1 was  informed," he says,  "that what the government wished to  effect   iviij   a   rearrangement,   of    the  electoral   districts   so  far as  possible  recognizing a' common   unit of 'representation. , This,, Ijnwevcr  was   lo   lie  made sufficiently  elastic  to allow the  grouping of   different,  sections  of the  districts so  as  to detach conservative  voters from places  wheie they were in  excess- of the needs for a majority, and  the attachment of such' voteis   to districts where  the  new accession would  turn Ihe scale at an  election   in favor  of a  conservative  candidate,  where a  'liberal; hail   hitherto     been   ietunied.

Constant Source of Danger Found jn,  ^ Stumps  The fire wliich started Sunday on  the flat below the smelter threatened  at one time during Monday to be a  serious matter for the handsome residences of Mackenzie avenue.' The  wind freshening up; however, directed,  it more towards tho mill, and it was  quite a file that, night and part of  next day. Tuesday night it might,  easily have been as-ailed with chances  of exlingui-hment, as there was no  wind and it had ju-t then pretty  well burned out where it had raged.  On ��������� Wednesday (In; wind was ' vei y  fre.-h and slartid it up again and all  day it had lo be carefully watched'and  attended lo. , The breeze was, however, more, favorable' to the. town and  it blew" the blaze well to thesoulh  where all aiound thediinber seems lo  be on fire.  , The lesson of the fire has not been  lo-t'on some members of tne city  council, and it is quite likely that the  lownsite conipaniesvand cither owners  will be lvqui'-ed to stump and clear  the whole town, as the danger of.  'allowing them to stand wilh ii fierce  fireiaging is too-great fcjr citizens, to  take.

Quite true: they simply represented an  .effort JLu lix the boundaries of electoral  districts accoiding to two   rules; lirsl,  on the  principle  of equal   1eprosenta-  tion to equal numbers of voters; second-  on the principal that electoral districts  .should be arranged   to serve 1 he interests of the party in  power when   they  are  rearranged.    These  rules  do   not.  work well  together, hence  the highly  eccentric  shapes  of*-some   of the  districts on the charl I have constructed.  The gerrymander act, .is it was called,  was simply the chart I had constructed  expr/isced in legal language.

F. 0. Cotton, minister of public worksj  on, as the call read, "matters of public  interest,''  turned   out  to   be   another  "scrappy"   discussion    of.    that,    two  months old quai;rel, the canyon wagon  road which, as the president gave the  minister   lo   understand,    they . .were  going todiave anyhow.   As far us the  Mail could  see,   the meeting was arranged  seemingly lo  give some members of the  board  an   opportunity  to  exhibit their opposition  to Mr. Kellie'  and   "rub   it   in"   before   a  minister.'  Hon. Sh: Cotton was'no doubt properly  impressed   with " what1 ho   heard and  saw.     Nothing   new   bearing   on   the  subject of discussion came  up except,  pu.-Vi'^s:, -Mr, -Bourne's talk of a  local  syndicate     building .a   boat   anil   ap-  pioaching   Mr.   Kellie  about Ihe road  in. connection.     Incident  to   the   discussion   was .the  old   comparison   between' the   vested   inteiesls,    as    the  president called them, and the common  people, who beat  il   I wo  to one at Ihe  recent meeting  for trails.    A good description of Ihe meeting was given' by  a   business  man,   who  left early   and  who.  asked what  was going on, said;  "A  lot of  personalities and  political  animus.''  Having heard the. arguments, Hon.  Mr. Col ton offered the board to build  the road if it would put up forfeitable  security, acceptable to a baiik,r-'Miat a  continuous steamer service would re;  suit. Mr. Kellie endoised the proposal,  and with a vote of thauks to Hon. Mr.  Cotton, the meeting adjourned.  '      TO REFORM THE SENATE  Lauder's  Proposals  Suggest a Joint  Vote.

Cabinet     niinisteis    had     paid   their  private debts out of the  private  fund,  liberal candidates bad drawn on it for  their election expenses,   party workers  had made a good thing  for themselves  on   the  side  and,  in  fact,   the  public  moneys   had'  been   squandered   right  undieft.    Every  facility was given to  Sir   IJibbeit    Topper   to     piove     bis  dialers,   and   any  and   all   witnesses  whom he desired were summoned  before  the  committee.   The   result  was  complete failuie to prove one solitary  allegation: but,   nothing  daunted, Sir  Ilibbert declined   that  if  the  matter  was   laid, over   till   Ibis    session,   he  would prove everything.   The   matter  was   laid   over   at   his   icquest.

With Ihe steady approach  railroads and the opening up  season Trout Lake is putting on a very  busy air. Most substantial progress  has been made toweids impioving the  appearance of ihe town already this  se.1-011. Sidewalks,, have been built  along the principal ..-streets anil two  new .-ticets have been opened up. The  steamer is now making regular trips  up and down the lake and the sawmill  has gcit in over 13(1.000 feet of logs and  will commence sawing in the course of  a few clays. These logs are in addition  to the 200,000 feet cut during the eaily  .spring. The Topic has been enlarged  to a six colum, four page'paper, ancl it.  is our intention to keep it fully abreast  of the times. A dairy will be opened  up here shortly as will also a restaurant. The ranches, contiguous to the  town are looking exceedingly well ancl  bountiful crops are expected.

A rifle association and bugle band  are. being organised by...the Kootenay  rifle? at- Xejsuii,'.  As a   further indication of the pi os-  ent  satisfactory  state of Ihe   finances  of this  province,   it   is   interesting to  note'that our agent -general in London  was able to state, on   the stlength of a  ,cablegram     from     Finance     Minister  Cotton,     that,    notwithstanding    the  abolition of the 11101 tgage tax and the  tax on wage-worker.-  in   metalliferous  mines,   the   ic.di/.ed   and     estimated  p: ovincial revenue for the year ending  June, oOlh,1 will 'probably  exceed 81,-  500,000���������the largest ever received and  nearly double what it was  four years  ago." Things cannot be in such a had  way   after   all,   nolwithstanding    the  disaster  predicted   by   the "blue ruin'"  opposition pres������.    Asa mailer of fact,  all   that   was   required   lo   place   the  finances'of this  piovince  on   a  stable  basis   was'a. change  from the unbusinesslike   methods   that   characterized  rthe late Turner adminisl ratieii   to the  businesslike   methods  adopted   by the  present.   Semlin    adminisl r.-il ion.      In  saying this'we do   not wish lo give the.  impress on that   we   think there  is no  room   for   impi o\ emeiit.      A   greatly  improved  condition   of   affairs   exists  today,   and,  as  time goescon,   if the  S'inilin   government, slicks   resoluldy  to the business of adminislering all'.-iirs  in the interests of uhe   people,   instead  of in the interests of a limited number  of     monopolists,,     laiid-grabbets   and  charier-mongers,     the     impiovement  will    be   still, more marked.    There is  much yet to  be done, pal ticularly in  the   direction   of   legitimate   development of the resources of I he province,  No branch of the   public   service calls  more urgently for   businesslike consideration   (ban   that   of   the   land   and  t      1  works department.
