IMPROVED BALLOTS.  An Impjovernent in the Printing" will  Make less Spjilirsr in Fu.ti.re.  A Gratuitous' Insult.  ���������.*���������  The   latest   development    in,    the  patriot efforts of the opposition, to stir  up   animosity  ,between,  the'   various  nationalities i f  Our people  is   the  assertion now going  the   rounds   of   the  Tory'press that  there   is   nothing  improbable in Mr.' Cook's charge that  he  was offered a senatorship at w  price���������  a charge, in'support of   which   lie  has  not attempted so far ' to  produce one  tittle of   evidence-���������because   it   is   a  custom in France to put a trade value  on   titles  and   sell   them   in the open  market, and the  custom ,has been imported   into   Canada.     Now suppose  for   arguments'   sake   that  this were  true,   what   possible    good ���������   purpose  would be   served   by  offering  such a  gratuitous insult  to the national pride  of   two-fifths  of  our   people. " There-  verse however is ' tire fuctj for it is' in  the knowledge   of every inaii who has  taken aninteiligent'intorest in cunent  events that  not   many, years ago, men  in the   highest   ranks   in France were  ignnininiou'sly  hurled   from   power'by  the_force  of   public  opinion,1   because  they were proved   to have participated  -in   Hie"-"sale, of '.titles and decorations  and. even   tire presidential chair .itself  was-tragically effected by.the incident.  If   the   Tories   of   Canada  had   ever  shown ft tenth pari of  the rcse-itment  against ' crookedness   in   high   places  when their own friends were concerned  as-was shown by the French nation on  this   occasion, l heir reputation, for"probity would stand infiitely better to day  than it does.  M\ D. J. McDonald, the  returning  ��������� iflicer, states that an improvement has  been made  in   the   new ballots which  are to be used at the forthcoming election, says the  Rossland   Miner"      On  (he old ballot, against the name of each  candidate which was   printed within a  black bluck, was left a circular disc on  which a cross had to be placed.    If the  cross was   not   placed   within the disc,  <ilthou������h opposite to   the. name of  the  candidate,' the ballot w-.s often thrown  out, although   there  would seem to be  no reasonable doubt as to the intention  of the voter.     .-������������������''  ,   Under   the  new  system   the black  blocks, or   parallelograms are still left,  but they are placed  an inch apart and  between each pair is set the name of, a  candidate, in other words the mimes of  the   candidates  aie  separated by.'the  blocks referred to.     To, signify his intention, all that"the .voter has to do is  to place  a' 'cross anywhere, opposite to  the name of his choice.     It is thought  that   this   method   will   keep   many a  ballot   which,  under, the  disc system'.  would probably have to be rejected  There is also another point to which'  the returning..officer called attention  arid that is the freedom of the voter to  vote any where within his riding.^ Thus  a Revelstoke* voter could vote at Na-  kusp or vice versa.

Where's He Gone.  It   i������s  astonishing how quickly Mr.  HugrYjohn Macdonald appears to have  dropped out of sight.     His entry into  the fight  was quite dramatic���������designedly so.     Like a   meteor he suddenly  appeared in the political sky, ho swept  across the heavens and  has once more  disappeared.    That he-has been a distinct, failure so fur as accomplishing  anything for- his party is concerned, is  fully admitted on every hand, indeed  the only thing that appears to remain  to give distinctive character to Hugh  John's share of the campaign up-to-  date was  his undertaking 'to*work in  the deadliest opposition to the most  .prominent   plai.k   in   his party's pl.-il-  .foiin   by   endeavoring   to   serine the  abolition ofMhe duly on agiiciilluial  implements.  ��������� "No Time > for a Change.  ,-The aggregate, trade  of  Canada  in  1893 was loss than  $248,000,000.    In  189fi it had dropped   to  ������239,000,000  the total! for   the   four   years   being  ������952,000,000. "In   1900   after' four,  years of Liberal-government, the trade  has gone up to-$381,000,000   and   I lie  . total trade for that four years   is  ������1,-  205,000,000 or an increasf  of  G3  per  cent in  the   last  four years  over  an  actual decrease in   the  previous  four  y^ars.    So much for the  dire  disaster  which was to follow  the  accession  of  the Liberals to power.    The men with  "the instinct for government"-���������-as the  Tories   coolly .described   themselves���������:  have completely .dropped   out   of   it.-  They,have given place to men  who  in,  every direction- have secured   results,  never even dreamed of  befoie     .Is  it.  likely the country  will  entertain  any  proposal   to   change   all    this?   Not  much ! . .-  If is not nccessaiy to  wait for the  census returns next year to prove the  claim of the Laui-iei  Government thai  the exodus has stopped  and   that'the  tide has set. in strongly in the opposite  direction.   Departmental figures show  beyond question  that at   least  10,000  actual farmers set I led'in the Northwest  ������last year,  and  Ibis' present' season   is  proving  one  of   yet  greater ��������� arlb'ily  though'I he official figures-are , not yet  compiled.' F.d':n 1S97 to 1800.   100,000  settlers came into the country and one  direct result of this tremendous influx  his   been   that   in   two   years   under  Liberal government there, have  been  10,700 entries for land ,in   the  west as  against 0,000 in the  la-t five  years  of  Tory rule.   It is a- significant incident  worth   recording .in Mliis.   eo.ineclioii  that in place of losing Ihousands  yearly of Lhe'fjiest of our population   driven  by .adverse circuui.alances to. seek   a  livelihood  in   the.

At the same rate of incie'aso  fortius balance of  the  present  year1,  this  will make a total in three  years  of at  least  -10,000.

Among the most significant signs of  the times in the present federal  campaign is the cold-blooded and  deliberate way in which the majority  of the Tory newspapers appear to ho  conspiring to mis-report, the meetings  and proceedings of their opponents.  Aside altogether fi'omlhe question of  morality, it is the worst possible policy  ttpersislently misrepresent one's opponents and to iirisslate facts; more  especially when the niistepreseiitation  is so clumsy as to bring conviction on  sight. It is not pretended that Liberal  papers are so absolutely free from the  temptation of party bias that their  political reports are entirely without  prejudice, but to their credit, the  general statement may be safely made  that their news columns are trustworthy and accurate.'

McLaren', of   St. Andrew's'  church, vigorously denounced the Canadian system of'making appointments  ��������� to certain-positions in the public service., His contention is, that such  appointments should be' made on the  around of intellectual and moral fitness  and not as a reward for party services,  and with the view of diminishin'g the  bitterness of party strife and prevent  ing'the possibility of charges of partiality or corruption being brought  against our -parliamentary, representatives.     He urges the abolition of   the  ' system of parly patronage and the  filling of all' appointments to public  oriices in the hands of the permanent  heads 'of the various departments of  the civil service. The question is one  of great importance nnd deserves the  earnest consideration of men of all  shades of political belief. ^ The reform  sucgostod is ccitainlv a very radical  one, and many objections may be'  urged against its adoption. It is  ;quite evident, however, that wc must  either revert to the dignified system  followed in Great JJiitain where the.  civil service is entirely .separated from  party politic-'; or be content to drift  into the "spoils system" of the United  States���������a system thot the great majority of Canadians regard as utterly  objectionable.-��������� Vancouver World.  < ' i '                    .. .������������������������ tv.          ,     ���������  Tin-: railway policy of the provincial  government .has not' been announced  from any 'source' that can be deemed  authoritative, , Building railways to  divert trade from established towns in  Kouleuay and-Yale to towns on the  coast will uot be considered a far-seeing railway policy; no more would the  building of a railway to the north end  of Vancouver [sland, in order to  shorten the hinie between coast cities j  and Alaskan points.

" [ am  proud," said Mr. Sifton, "thatfrom the  first day I entered his cabinet-, Sir,Wilfrid, Laurier has been my friend ;  1 am  proud , he has given  me his complete  confidence.

Why do they, not lay  their   finger   on  something in the administration of Manitoba or the Northwest Territories with which they can  find-fault?    Up,to the present time  they have been unable to,.do so.    Does  if. not icem strange that after spending  ramy  years  in   Manitoba  v. ithout a  spot or slain, and for four years administering millions of dollars' worth of  property, that the'y have to go to the.

We  were  a  quiet   family   of   vegetarian   tendencies,  and.   moreover,   we' were  in   need  of  a  little more help in the housekeeping do-,  paMmoni.    So it was that ,\ve answered  the   advertisement.    The   arrangements  were quickly made, and Miss Mullen and  l.er cat came.  We had decidedr that she would be a  \flght. delicate  little lady,'and that she  woi:ldr bring tho cat in a' large covered  basket.    When she came. she.proved to  , be just what we had imagined her.  'She   put   the   basket   on   a   chair  and  then hastened to unfasten the cover.   She,  raised ,it cautiously, and there appeared  over the edge of the basket a cat's head.  He  was  a   large  black   and   white  cat,  /entirely commonplace, save for one thing.'  His  lace was mostly  white,  but on his,  under-lip was a  liny  black spot.    This  little imperial gave him a sort of distinc--  thm.    lie looked calmly nbout the room,  then settled back in his place and closed-  his eyes.    , ^     '  "There!" said Miss Mullen triumphantly.    "You see"what a vegetable diet does  for a cat.    If he had been fed on flesh.  <lie would have been tearing all around the.  rliom."  She stood regarding the cat fondly.  '���������Won't  yon  take off your things?"  I  suggested.     ,    .  "Oh. yes." She recollected herself stid-'  'ilenly and unfastened-her coat. I showed  her to.her room nnd left her there.  Presently   she   returned   to'the  sitting  room.''   She- tiptoed   to   (he   basket  and  looked in. then came and sat near me.  "(Joorge is still asleep'" she said.  "George?"- I said.   "Oh, the cat!  What  an odd name for a cat!" '  She colored'the least bit possible. "I  named him" for somebody I used to  know," she said with dignity.  "Did I understand.' you to say that he  Is a vegetarian cat?"  ."Yes; I never could see why it should  not be as good for cats as for humans,  and I think that George is proof that my  theory is correct. You see how steady his  nerves are. lie never has, had a morsel  of lloslrtb eat in his life. I have kept  the closest watch on his diet. He is old  enough now, so that I think his,habits  are pretty well formed, and I doubt if he  would touch meat if it were pin before  him.' It is' partly on bis account that I  wanted a home in a vegetarian family."  She had been rocking gently'back ,nnd  " forth, but now she suddenly sat bolt upright and listened, a quite tierce expros;  sion on her face.  "Do I hear English sparrows?" sho demanded. '" ��������� ...  ��������� "I shouldn't wonder," I said. "There  ore some around here."  '"  "Oh, dear!" she cried in n tone of great  concern; "I���������I don't believe I can stay  then, and I am so sorry, for everything  else is just what I wanted. Why didn't  I remember to put it in my advertisement I hat it-must be an English sparrow-  less [dace?''  Al'ler some.coaxing I persuaded her to  stay with us for a little while, though  she was still very doubtful and wished  she had worded her advertisement differently. >-  Thus in our first interview 1 came upon  her two ruling passions���������her love for her  cat and her hatred'of English sparrows.  In the weeks that followed we all gol to  be very fond of her. She was cheery and  helpful and seemed contented. She had  the gentlest disposition, and there was  but one subject on which she ever showed temper. That was.the English sparrow, .Sometimes I would pretend to  champion the much. abused birds, and  then her indignation knew no bounds.  She was fiercely sarcastic, vindictive and  revengeful. It was very amusing to hear  her express such bloodthirsty sentiments.  "If you think the English sparrow such  n line thing," she said one day, "just rend  that." And she laid a book before me.  It was a United States agricultural report, and it was about the. English sparrow (Passer doniesticus). and it contained some 400 pages of statistics. I .did  not read it all, but I looked it through,  and in one place I found an old tintype,  which had probably been put in for a  bookmark. 1 glanced at it and'saw that  it was a picture of a young man: I was  about to replace it when I noticed that  he wore a small black imperial. "That  must be George," I said to myself, and I  smiled at the resemblance, as George the  cat walked in just then.  Most cats have marked characteristics,  lint George seemed to be n sort of nonentity.   I nui not saying that his regetnblfl  dit't bad cM'tlilae to do rith It.  I mmlr  state the" fact. "He Mcpt most of the  time, and his eyes had a -dull, stupid expression. He struck mo ns being '-yniral  and without any pnitier.lnr mtoro.-'l in  life. About two .nimirhs after George  nnd his mistress came to live, with us a  change came over the cat. IIis maimer  grew more lively and animated, ami he  slept much less. Miss Mullen noticed  this, too, and remarked that she guessed  the change of air had done him good. It  was a week later,that I discovered what  was "going on.  Our next neighbor each morning threw  out crumbs for the birds. This was a  very reprehensible practice, in Miss Mullen's opinion, and she denounced the  neighbor unsparingly.'' One morning I  stood at an open window when the sparrows were-having their breakfast. Suddenly there'-was a violent commotion  among them'. I looked, and there was  George with a sparrow in his mouth.  "Whvl George!" I exclaimed in 'surprise! remembering his vegetarian bringing up. He heard and looked at me with  ' a guilty, appealing expression on his face.  In spite of my half joking championship of Passer doniesticus,. I did not like  tho birds much better than, did Miss  Mullen! so "I quite approved of the good  work George was doing. What is more,  I did my best to keep his secret, conniving at his'guilt nnd getting Miss Mullen  to do something in another, part of the  house during the hour for George's morning sparrow.  After he had been out a,little'while lie  would come briskly in, sit down in the  sun and wash his face, purring loudly.  It sometimes happened that he did not  succeed in catching a sparrow, and then  (,he would be cross,,the black imperial giving an "added sternness to his countenance. I think he appreciated the fact  that there was a secret between-us.  ' One afternoon Miss. Muller had a caller,  a gentleman, and I induced her to make'  hiiii slay to tea. The rest of the family  happened to be away, so we three sat at  the table together. Mr. Coleman ,was a  pleasant man, and as I looked at him I  had a feeling that. I bad seen him some-  ( where before. At length it dawned upon  . me that he, was George of the tintype,  though he did not wear an imperial now.  My decision was confirmed when George  the cat came In.       v  "This is my cat, Tommy, Mr., Coleman," 'Miss Mullen said, and.she gave  me a defiant look'. r.Severaf times, she  spoke to the cat and called him Tommy,  and I could but admire.her ability to remember his new name. Mr. Coleman  took but little interest in the cat, but at  ..length he'showed Miss Mullen a picture  of his dog."- . ',���������'".  "Oh, she's' a smart little dog, Midget  is," he said proudly.  Miss, Mullen passed the card to nip,-  "They always make me think of a linty  dishcloth, poodles do," she said.  "It 'is a very fine photograph," I said.  "It must be professional work.". and I  tiirned.it over to'see the photographer's  name." Across the back was written:  "Flora.   .Taken Jan. IS, 1 SOS.-;,  As I handed the picture back to 'its  owner his eyes met mine, and his face  said as plainly as if be had spoken,*  "Don't give me away."  "There is some mystery here," I' told  myself, and the next day I mid to Miss  Mullen, "It ds funny, but.,I don't know  your first name." ������  ."It is Flora,", she answered, "and, I  never liked it."  Once, when something was said about  Mr.  Coleman, she blushed  a   little  and  said, "We used to be pretty good friends,  but  wo had  a  serious quarrel,  and   for  ���������years we did not speak to each other."  For several weeks I went around with  tlie three, secrets���������George's, Mr. Coleman's and Miss Mullen's���������rheavy on my  mind; then one of them slipped from me."  Miss Mullen saw George catch a sparrow. I shall never forget the. expression  on her face and the struggle that I could  see going on there���������the sorrow and ,dis,-  may at George's crime and the fierce exultation at tho death'of Passer doniesticus.  "Oh, George!" she cried in a low tone  of remonstrance. "I am1 surprised at -  you! What shall I do to you? ,You  ought to be punished, but it-would not  do any good." A pause, while her eyes  were, full of reproach; theu'she said savagely. "The abominable little, pests ought  to be killed, and if you don't do anything  worse, t"i an catch them'I won't say a  word." In a moment more, with feminine inconsistency, she said' pitifully,  "Oh, the'poor little bird!"  Mr. Coleman called at our house often  after that first time, and once be said to  me. "When I've been here and then go  home, it does seem lonesome to I'mve nobody but a dog waiting for me, though  Midget does the best she knows how, I  suppose."  It was after Miss Mullen found out  George's secret that she seemed a little  troubled and unhappy in Mr. Coleman's  presence. At length one evening she spo!:c  out quite abruptly: "You were right,  George, and I was wrong. A cat cannot  be trained not to catch birds. I've tried  it ever so many times, and now even  Tommy has railed me." Her eyes were  downcast, and she did not see Mr. Coleman's face. I did, and I got up quickly  and left the room.  "And all those things we used to quarrel over���������the English sparrows, you  know, Flora. Well, you were light and  I was wrong." That was all I.heard as  I went out and clo.n'd the door.  It is a year now since Miss Mullen left  us. George nnd Flora���������I should say  Tommy and Midget���������get on harmoniously. As Tommy still indulges in his morning Passer doniesticus, he can no longer  be called a vegetarian cat���������New York  Evening Post.  The Proper Term.
