'In all Hevolfetoko's  experience there has never heen such  a harsh relutte .administered to any  public men and it will not be forgotten  booh by those who received-it. Hon.

He  studiously.avoidod rei'oieneo to rodis-'  tributinn, CYukon railway bonus, or  Chinese legislation, though boniew hat  forcibly reminded of them by the' audience, Ayho had the facts of these  things at- their tongue ends. It is not  imprbpet lo'say that there was mil bing  whatever in lhe Altorney-gen'ls speech  , pertinent to the is.-ues of the election,  and it seemed to liian'y as if he spoke,  hisliltle piece (till he got hot) in a manner as perfunctory as a schoolboy.

The Premier's speech can host be described ;i-s disappointing, ]t was the  Biiine old story lhat has done duty so  long, and was.deli\ eied (il is only fair  to say he suffered1 fiom a cold) in a  manner devoid of force, freshness 01  originality. Tlie impression was not  good and he had not well sl.-u ted before  the people began (iling out'.

Hisallusiuii to hi^ action on the river hank was very weak  and he loft the impression on the mind*  of manythat he was afraid to argue it,  as when questioned 1 ('luting it ho got  quite unn'eceSMirily irritable.

It's very  rude lo rufile the feelings of the im  portant itinerants just loose from the.  care, of their school mar'iris and so���������  the Colonist rushes in with thesugges  lion that (he practice which siieakeis  representing,(aie political party haye  of attending meetings called by the  opposite party is practically a mistake.  "There, is too much disposition in this  province to treat political' questions  from the debating school point of view"  it continues, and suggests that the be.sl  way is for each party to hold its own  ineetings. The. Colonist's alaini is well  founded ; the.

It was  distressing in the extreme' to many ���������  standing around to witness the .sight  'of giaves being trampled upon by cattle and horses, and I for one confess  that I felt ashamed that as a commuii1.'  ty we have hitherto neglected one (f  the corporal works of mercy taught by  -the christian religion���������that of care tor  the dead. ��������� Tht.s feeling ivas intensified  when a gentleman who was piesentat  the'funeral, and he a Jew, expressed  pain and surprise at our apathy in'this  matter.

You will reinenibei th.-it'last year one  of tlie churches gave a collection for  this purpose, and the members of one  chinch by means of a public concert  raised another sum. But the principle  of iiiising such a fund by means of entertainment, etc., is not the right priii- '  ciple. Bear in mind that care for the  dead is a divinely-iiiiplan'ted'Jnstiiict,  and that it. ranks in God's sight with  feeding the hungry and clothing lhe'  naked, we ought not to withhold our  money until we get .something in'return, but jrive willingly what we can  afford. Understanding that a committee had the matter in hand, I thought  it would be intrusive on my parttosay  or'do anything, but after the expeii-  ence of la-t Wednesday nianv think  that something >hould lie done.

On April Oth of this year (I ho date of
the hist parliamentary return) there
were Hl.oOl voters in Uritish Columbia ;
10,012 of Ui.-so were on Vancouver Island. 20,019 on the. mainland. The Island voters are given in the bill 11 rcp-
lesenlalivo-, I ho general average of
voteistOa rrprosenlalivo being 73S.
The miinlund voter., get 21 representatives, 1 lie average being S7H. The
mainland, applying this Island average,
should have instead of 21, as by this
hill, not les-.s tlian 28.
Hot there is a 1 noie correct way loap-
porlioii t he pmpor repiosculation of
the-eiwo great poriions of the piov-
ince, that i'> the proportion of urban
and rural void's to a repre-enlative.
On Vancouver [-laud. lh|' urban vote
is larger lhan the' rm.il vole; on the
mainland, wi'lh il- gieiiter area and
-���ciftcied population ihc.roiidilions- are
ri".e,s,.(l. On Apiil Olh, I here were
(ii:{7 111 ban voler.s on lhe Island, and
1,175 itual witers; l he urban voters to
a |-ep|e,entalive were J 2S7, llu- rural
prop'.ition 101. On lhe mainland at
ih" Haiio- date then were V.iJM rural
vol en and but 7,:��j:J iiiban ones,
the averages being 7115 1 oral
and     117^     urban       voters       to       a
,,.|,i( ntative      in     th"     legislature.
Jhis show.s.Uiat on the imiiiiland il re-
,qnires 191 more urban 11 nd 219 more rural 'voters in each constituency to re-

Logetliorsome5000 voters,-orone-fourth
the   electoral,  strength   of the   entire
inainland. These upon the Island basis
are practically, disfranchised. From a
mainland point of .view, therefore, it
looksas if the Attorney-general's sense
of fairness was coloured with a tinge
of insular prejudice.
But there is another point of view!
The West Kootenay view, which considers itself a keen suffenM under this
hill. At the date before mentioned,
West Kootenay bad a voting strength
of nearly 4000 voters (it has considerably ii'iorucuow) and it' was given but
four members; at the same time, the
rural constituencies of Vancouver IsT
land with hut slightly over 1,000 voters
were allowed lo retain the large num-
So we (ind that with no more voters,
practically, these Island constituencies
have twice as much to say as to how
the revenues of this country shall be
raised and how expended. Do they
pay more then ? Does money taik ? No!
For in '93,' '90, '97 they paid $:i83,:i75.02
to the treasury," while in'97 alone West
Kootenay paid .$S33,0l)l), or as muchjil-
most in one year as lhey in tlnee. Fair
and just aie not terms applicable in
this contrast.
There are, however, mainland, con-
Ira.stsalso possible in this hill fiom the
Koolenay standpoint.; and as sectionalism is no part of the opposition policy, and is to be deprecated, an illustration of a home anonialycqually as, glaring as the Island one given, may not
he inappropriate. In West Kootcnuy's
conlines is now contained at least one-
(iflhof tho. population of the province;
it includes the incorporated cities of
Ito.ssland, Nelson, Ka?lo and Sandon ;
has numerous town-, as Hevelstoke,
New Denver, Slocan Cily, Aiusworth,
Trail Vmir, Naku-p. Silverlon, elc.;
also many .smaller places and mining
camps. Nearly all the shipping mines
of the province are there; the chief
revenue of ll"'. country is derived from
there; it has numerous railway lines
and branches, sniolleis, banks, steamers, churches, schools and societies;
and nearly all and every other commercial ami .social institution is represented; jet with all of these adjuncts
of civilization, acquired mostly within
lhe last few yeais, it is not given by
Hon, Mr. Jfiborts' hill quite as much
representation as Cassiarand Lillooet,
districts which haye but a small population, not a mile of railway, no cities,
no large town.-, and no shipping mines.
How "fair and just" this distribution
of repri'.soiitalion is to West ''Kootenay
is also shortly and easily *oeti by, tmt-
ingthat since'iSM, 'of the total increase
of voters in 'the province (8.380) West
Koolenay contributed 2,110, or more
than one-fourth, while Cassiar and Lillooet combined' added but 351; or oue-
twenty-fourth. ���    _    ;
There is, however, one more princi
ple by which this bill should be tested,'
the cardinal one of represi.-nfativogov-
eminent or majority rule, AiUJh'g 111!
the mainland scats controlled by th^
government-at the lime of tips bill's,

seats, all government, (Mr. Higgi""' ror
volt is- ;i slight exception) it is found
they provide for 2:i representatives
with a total number of voters amount-
ing toll, 1!)3; an average of 017 votes
to a member. This leaves n majority
balance, 17,303 voters to tip; opposition
party, with but 15'represenliitives; an,
average of 113S per member Assuming then that lhe goveriiment can capture all the. seats controlled when this
lull was introduced, they would not
represent a majority of the electorate ;
the tail would again wag the dog. How
any man of British nationality who ,
looks upon representation-tbe very
foundation of responsible 'government,
���as a right and not a privilege, can ,
call the Attorney-General's bill fairaud
just under the circumstance.; disclosed
above passes comprehension. R''pre- ,

' Revelstoke Herald, July 28, 97.
There are. iiiniours of a shuffle in the
pinvinciul cabinet. The commissioner
of lands nnd works and the. provincial
secretary aro said lo be about to retire
and two other government supporters
to take their places. They m-iy as well
save, themselves. The people do not
care, two straws which of them is

of public works. VVhat they want is
to get rid of thein and till th-jir ways

What this province, wants to see in
power is a reform party bent on sweeping out of existence, the whole corrupt,
antiquated and easy-going ;syste,in of ;
doing business at'present in vogue at
Victoria; and on replacing it by an'
honest and business-like adminislra-
fion of public affairs. This province
has been run quite long.enough for the
benefit of a little clique at: Victoria.

'trilrrn i'lare recently in' tin United
testes which''jirnvcs that Ivan IvtuioT
was nii.inikii! in hi.s theory and iiiar tho
alvolutf! nerfectiou of a forgery may
prove tlio c:ur-"C of a convictioii. The
Etoiy which contains the proof of this
assertion in not a long one and is as fol-
1 About 20 years ago a young 'man
named Richard Robinson, who lived iu
the city of Kcw York, bought lO'O acres
of kind near Ksrhsua City. The land
was worth oiily?a or,:,i-l 1111 ucre at th.ic
time, aud Rohinscu, getting into trouble, deeded tiic land to his lawyer in
payment cf his foe. The lawyer gave no
attention to the property, and it was
sold for taxes,��aud his title was good
against all claimants except infaut heirs.
When.the land became valuable, cnyiug'
to the' growth of ' Kansas City, an un-
Fcrnpnions real estr.te dealer of" St.
Louis induced a young woman of that
city to impersonate, a daughter of Rob-,
inson and to bring-suit, to recover the
property. The girl v/as proved (o.bc an
impostor and tho suit was decided
agaiu=t her.
Tho case attracted v.-idc attention,, and
tho fact that the. title to the land secmr
ed somewhat in doubt caused a disbarred lawyer named Reed, once a resident
of Chicago, to lcok into,the matter carefully cud finally In conceive a 'plan to
obtain possession of the laud through'
forgery. When everything had been prepared, Reed brought suit of ��� ejectment
agaiutt, the man who had possession of
the, property, claiming that' he,, had a
deed to it from Robinson dated prior to
the cue given by Robinson "to his lawyer, . thus invalidating net on!}- that
title, but fill subsequent titles which
had, been given..
The only way to break'thi.i claim was
(o p;eve that tke' ciccil alleged to be
signed by Robin'cn was a forgery. After aJcng search Robinson was discovered'by the ut torney for the defense, living in an obscure town in Texas. He
had passed through' many wild experiences on the frontier and in e '->er?oinl
encounter had 'received a pistol ball in
.h.is right arm, which made amputation
necessary."' Subsequently he had served
as county clerk in Missouri, and his signature was ' thus readily accessible' to
the fcigcr." Robinson was 'brought lo
Kansas .Ci ty by the defense, and his tes-
,ti:noiiy w.as.ielicd on to prove that the
'signature attached to the deed was a
forgery.. ��� \
When the case camo to trial'and tho
deed had been offered in evidence, Rob
inson was placed 011 tho stand. Ho examined (ho signature with the greatest
carej-and to the astonishment and chagrin of the defense he testified that the
writing was his, not a lino or dot in tho
signature differing in (he slightest degree from his usage. It seemed as though
the wily Mr. Reed had pained hi.s case,
when .the attorney for the defense, taking up the deed, glanced at it a moment, then, dropping it upon the table/
he suddenly asked:
"Mr. Robinson, when did you lose
your right arm?" ' ,   .
"About 15years ago." waa <ho reply.��
"Js your signaturo fo this deed written with your light or left hand?"
' "Willi my left hand. "
, "-Did you ever employ your left hand
inwiiiing   beforo  you  lost your right-
"That is  all,"   said   tho   attorn-
"Call Mr. Reed to the fitand."
The plaintiff took the stand, and tho
attorney handed him the deed.. "You
swear that this deed was made to you
by Mr. Robinson?"
"I do, and ho has identified   his signature," replied Reed triumphantly.
" 'On what dale was t hat paper given?''
"Id's dat'd April 10, 1870."'
'"That was six years before he lost hi')
right  arm. and yet this deed   is signed
with   his  left  hand.    How do  you tic-
count for that?"
The witness was silent. JJo tnrner.

Where the Carvers In Human Flesh Find
Their Implements.
Every great city has a hundred and
ono curious busin'esses^and trades, factories, individual callings and shop3 that
seem to bear no especial relation to the
commerce of every day. It does,not
seem ns if these odd business interests
had much to, do with the prosperity of
tho world, or were concerned in it at
all. It is typically American that perhaps the most interesting of tho strange
establishments in New York deals with
Ecience and inventive ingenuity.
The building where this curious business���it is the manufacturing of every
sort of surgical instrument and device
���is lodged.is itself ono of tho strangest
in New York. But a few blocks from
tho city hall, it looks as though the'sur-
rounding piles of brick and mortar had
squeezed it into half its' proper com- ���
pass. The first floor is a salesroom. Tho'
hall floors abovo are dovoted to stock,
plan and work rooms/ In a little two
story building in tho yard at tho back
is tho "experimental and repair, workshop," whero. eight to ten nimble fingered mechanics are on hand.
There is here ono room where remarkable ideas aie born or assume form, each
one of them concerning in someway tlie ���
physical welfaro of men. Every inch of , rcitain fraction of an ounce, it proved
its wall is covered with framed photo- , ' that (he pro' o had left the track cf the
graphs of the. most famous physicians, ; bullet and lied touched cellular matter,
past and present, of Eurapc'andAmer- i       "The   mn��t  'curious   thing   I   ever
made?" replied the ��� old instrument
m iker, repeating tho question. "That
is  a, hard  cie to answer.   There have
gical principle a patent" is solclom taken
out. The doctor inventor cannot because
of medical ethics. Tho establishment
finds it hardly "worth its while because
of tho expense and the small number
made of any ono instrument.
It is as good as a fairy story of the old
sort to spend  an  hour or more in this
room and see  and  hear of  the curious '
things being planned and experimented,
with.    Mnsy seem   to  the laymen fantastic in their  uses and, tho results ac- .
complished with   them  not to   be   believed.   One instrument of  this sort is
tho bullet probe telephone, with which
the modern   surgeon, au  ordinary telephone receiver strapped to his car, can
hear when his probe touches the, bullet
far within the tissues, a distinct click.
Many of the implements made hero
havo    almost    revolutionized,   certain
branches ^of  surgery.    In a box on  the
heaped up desk spoken of lay, tho last
timo the/writer visited this room, a delicately   adjusted,   minute   instrument,
with  a  scalo marked along its length.
Its purpose was to make probing , iii the
brain safe beyond a doubt.   A probe of "���
any lcquired size fitted into tho handle,
and as  the Furgcon  gently inserted tho'
tip and went, farther and farther within
the skull tho scale would register tho .,
exact ��i)crgy of the pressure.   Beyond a i
certain point, there was danger iu pene- '
