THE CHINESE LAW.  is Salil to he  Against  Apolitical meeting was held at Ainsworth on Saturday last, for the purpose  .of selecting delegates to attend the convention to be held at Nelson on the 1-tth  (if April. To say, that it was a; fair representation of the wishes of the intelligent electors and property owners of the  precinct of Ainsworth, would be doing  the people of the district a grave injustice.   The principal  upon which'the  meeting was conducted, was planned before hand by a certain clique,-who were  instructed from Kaslo, as to how the  meeting  should  be conducted; and the..  ���������'delegatesVtiggesied that should be sent  to the convention.  The ruling element of the meeting being men who have not, a dollars worth  of property in the district, and some  who have not been the required time in  the. province to be entitled to a vote.  . -The principal upon which llie convention was supposed to be. held was to have  an unbiased delegation elected from  every precinct' in lire district for the  purpose-of bringing out the fittest Canadian to contest tho eons! it-uency for the  local legislature, but instead of currying  out ihe convention on square, honest,  and above board principles, we find the  Kaslo people determined l.o rule by \vn;e  ~p"u 11 i itg""agai ns t"S' el s"oi r,"~'"7mrl "ei i d eii v o'v-  ing to stir up a feeling of the electoral of  Ainsworth against "Nelson; consequently  getting the three Ainswnrlli delegates  pledged to support a Kaslo candidate.  pud one of the delegates elect, going so  far as to declare that: he. would not support a Nelson man under any consideration."

CONCENTRATING MACHINERY.  The London Mining Journal is at  present publishing a series of "articles  written by E.JHenry Davis, M. E., F. G.  S.. the latest of which is on the choice  of concentrating machinery, from which  the following extracts are taken :���������  Roughly, all ores can be divided into  two classes, viz., those that can be enriched by means of coarse crushing and  concentration, and those requiring line  crushingand fine concentration. Among  this latter class gold and silver ores are  included, as they must be reduced to a  pulp before, they can be treated���������first,  over amalgamated plates or in pans and  afterwards on some form ofvanneror  other concentration table.  The process of coarse concentration  consists in gradually reducing thesize  of the mineral, and after each reduction  extracting the rich particles of ore by  means of jiggers, then recrushing the  ore still carrying mineral until the whole  of the latter is recovered.  A mill of this chus for the, concentration of galena, blende, copper pyrites,  and other ores would consist of a stone  crusher of the Blake type, followed by a  picking table, where the rich-lumps of  ore and  the barren  pieces  of rock are  ;lii'c-!<  latter to the  <C  NELSON  LOTS  03  .IN������������������  ���������IS  eV**^  lihPx  __  A new Railway  under Construction.

Co., Nelson-, B.C.  ind  ' sorted out, the former going direct into  the   magazine,  and    the  waste heap.  The. remainder of the ore reduced by  the'amount thus picked out passes onto  a large pair of rollers, and after being  crushed is classified by means of a series  of revolving trommels, each of which  feeds a jigger arranged for treating that  particular'size ol: ore. The number ol:  oizes 1111 o which the ore is classified by  ineiii!;-! of trommels varies with its nature  from six to eight. Each separate size  goes direct to one or more jiggers according to Ihe quantity, and is theie  separated, in the case of an ore carrying  but one mineral, into rich concentrates,  middlings and steriles. If, however, the  ore carries two minerals, say galena and  blende, then the product of each jigger  will he: rich, concentrated galena in the  first compartment of the jigger, followed  in the second by a mixed, product of  galena, blende and gangue, in the third  by rich concentrated blende, and in the  fourth by a mixed product of blende and  gangue.  The middlings in the first instance,  and the mixed product in the second, as  well as any tailings containing over 2  per cent of lead, are sent back to be re-  crushed, in order further to separate the  .mineral from the gangue.  The re-crushing is effected in a pair of  rolls, or, more suitably, by means of two  ... pairs kept for this pur-pose. If two pairs  are used, then the coarse middlings  should he sent to the rolls with the shells  most, worn and the fine tailings to the  one with the newest shells. By this  means a better result is obtained, for although theoretically, with a well distributed feed, tho rolls ought, not to wear  unevenly, yet practically they will always be. found to do so, and in consequence the fine pre escapes through the  grooves in the shell without being re-  crushed. -  __Ulhe_r.ecuushiug_i'ollsi_aLi_J!ollo.w.ed_bjuj.  "��������� fine trommels ' feeding jiggers with Hue j  sieves, while the 'ore under, say, one  millimetre passes on with the water into j  an hydraulic classifier which distributes i  it among l In; slime jigs;- slime 'tables, ov\  Luhrig winners. .   ������������������  - The degree to .which it is profitable to  .push the recovery of slimes both in  coarse -and fine . concentration depends  not only upon the" value of, the ore but  also on local conditions, such as labour,  fuel, wafer supply, <te. For coarse concent ration the rule should be to uybirl  niiiking slimes \)y carefully regulating  the crushing, never crushing a grain of  ore unnecessarily, or filling up the stone  breakers, rolls, or stamps with material  that <loes not need io be crushed. -This  ..can only be .effected by a system of  'gradual reduction and separation of the  rich .mineral at every step. By this  'means the. capacity of the mill is increased, and the .production'of slime.s  materially- diminished, lb is with these  latter that the bulk of the loss will occur,  especially wiih brittle ores .like those of  .silver and argentiferous galena, the rich  slimes of which are readily carried away  with the waste .waters;   i\or must it be  . forgotten that although the rich   con-  a tents'"of the slimes can .be, profitably extracted while, the whole is in motion,  yet it will possibly not pay, to attempt  it, if once they are allowed to settle,  thus  involving   the   rehandling of the  .-stuff."  As an example of the perfection which  can'be obtained by coarse, concentration  ���������   we may'quote the results obtained at a  mill erected on   the Luhrig system at'a  mine near St. Goar dn'tlie Rhine, with a  capacity of 50 tons per day..  The raw ore as it comes from the mine  . contains 9_<i'per cent Pb. and IS'90 per  cent Zn., while the concentrates average  6i to 65 per cent for the galena, and il  to 42.per cent Zn. for the blende. The  loss in the tailings is under 1 per cent  Pb." and-2 per cent Zn., while the total  cost of concentration including repairs  and coal is 2s per ton.  Fine concentration.���������At one time it  might have been said with.approximate  truth that coarse concentration ended  with jigging, bub now, owing to the perfection which has been attained in the  construction of jiggers, the fine- ore  which formerly went direct to the fine  concentration appliances is successfully  treated on high speed percussion lever  jiggers.  As we have already stated, the system  of coarse concentration involves the  gradual reduction of the ore by crushing  in order to avoid the. pulverisation of its  mineral contents. Many ores, however,  carry their valuable material so finely  divided and mixed up with the gangue  that the whole must be reduced to  powder before tho one can be freed from  the other1. It is evident therefore that  Ihe preliminary processes of coarse concentration are inapplicable in this case,  and that those of fine concentration  mnst be resorted to from the outset.  The cough oi e as it leaves the mine is  at first all broken down by means of a  stone crusher and falls into it bin, from  which it is automatically fed into a stamp  battery or other form of pulveriser. We  do not propose at this moment bo discuss the very open question as to the  best form of machine for the fine pulverisation of ore. So many appliances  have deen designed for this purpose that  the patent records abound with them.  Few, however, have come into practical work, and these have been more or  less successful with certain classes of ore.  For all round work in wet crushing the  stamp battery is the most successful machinery yet in vented, while its simplicity  and the ease with which it can be repaired and kept in working order without the aid of special tools, and intricate  castings are some out of the many  reasons which have helped to maintain  its popularity amongst practical men.  After leaving the stampbattery the  treatment of the ore depends upon its  nature. If it is an ore containing free  gold, it flows in in the form of pulp, over  a series of amalgamated copper plates,  while if it contains silver in the form of  native silver, chloride of silver, and  certain forms of sulphide of silver it  flows into a series of amalgamating panr,  the waste waters from the plates and  pans used in the above mentioned processes still carry mineral which cannot  be extracted by amalgamation, and  these slimes must be treated to the process of fine concentration as applied to  ores which do not require amalgamation,  such as those of tin, copper antimony,  galena, blende, &c. -  .' Whether, the slimes are derived direct  'from the stamps,-or are obtained after  treatment over the plates or pans, they  must lirst of all be classified by means of  Spitzkasten pointed boxes of hydraulic  classifiers. The makers of some concentrators assert that their machines will  work on pulp or slimes direct from the  the stamps, but it may be taken as-a  general rule that all slimes must be  classified previous to concentration, and  that it is only by moans of careful classi-  ticat ion that anything approaching good  results can be obtained.  The classified and thickened pulp from  the SpiUkasten' is fed on to a series of  winners either of the Luhrig, Fi-ue or  Etnbrey type, according to the results  required. '"  Formerly, as, indeed, is now cormnon-  Iv the case in the Cornish, tin mines,  percussion tables find i-ound.buddles were  exclusively employed for.this purpose,  entailing costlv handling ot the ore and  great loss in tlie tailings : now, however,  the great improvements recently made  in concentrating machinery admit ot a  constant automatic delivery of the. products. Iu the.case of machines of the  Frue vanner type "these products are  couceutrates and tailings, as they do not  admit of making" any "middlings'- or ot  treating mixed ores ou the same table.  For this latter purpose the Luhrig or  Billiara table is most appropriate, and  with either of these machines the products will be rich concentrates, middlings  and- tailings. The middlings would be  fed direct'onto another machine placed-  at a lower level when the same division  of the products would be obtained, -al:  though the quantity., would be much  less, owing to the abstraction ofthe concentrates' and tailings on the first vanner.  - As an example of the perfection ot  this type of concentrator when working  upon South African gold ore containing  11 dwts., the machine made concentrates  containing 12 ounces 12 dwts. 7 grains,  the tailing carrying only 23 grams-of  gold.- In another case on Australian  tailings having 3 dwt. 5 grains of gold  per ton, the results were, concentrates  5 ounces 1 dwt. 22 grains, middlings, 1  dwt. 55 grains, and tailings with only  traces of gold... The total yield was  therefore 87-01 per cent of the total gold.  The results were equally successful  when'tteating silver or copper ores.  1-aVe  Voli   Seeif,  The iVew  UNCONDITIONAL  NONFORFEITABLE  N ACCUMULATIVE   POLICY.

He gives double who gives at once, is  generally true, but is specially true with  regard to railwiiy construction in a  young mining camp.  Mr. Davie does not appear1 to claim  credit so much for his skill as a financier  as for bis promptitude, and as a man of  action in this matter. .But even from a  financial point of view, the Nakusp <fc  Slocan railway scheme will bear the investigation which its author invites.  The general supposition is, that the Nakusp and Slocan road was an ordinary  enterprise, which would have been proceeded with in any event this year, and  that the assistance given thereto by  the government, was given merely in  obedience to a statute of the House  which the government dared not disregard, The government was authorized  by statute to guarantee the interest on  the bonds of the road to the extent of  4 per cent on $25,000 per mile ot railway.  This, everyone knew, but no one in the  House or out of it seemed concerned  about the character   or   extent of the  , authority so granted, or its effect upon  the revenue. The statute, however-  passed the House without opposition,  "just" as did those concerning Spence's  bridge and the Nicola railway, and the  Chiliiwhack . railway, the Victoria  & Sydney, the Shuswap & Okanagan  and others. All bills authorizing the  same course as that adopted on the Nakusp & Slocan railway, i. e. the guarantee of interest at the rate of <t per cent,  per annum for 25 years upon the bonds  of the company to the extent of $25,000  per' mile.  Had Air. Davie been content to do ex-  "licfly^sflie-.^  regard to the S. & O. railway, guaranteeing bonds to the same extent, $25,-  000 per mile, no question would probably  have been raised. But in his anxiety to  to do his work in the most economical  way, Air. Davie tells the House that he  discovered aleak, that in fact he found  that their old methods were shamefully  wasteful'of tlie public mo'iiey. Interest-  guaranteed bonds, he maintains, are. bad.  because to. induce a capitalist to in vast  in them, you must sell at such adiscount  that the margin which he secures together with what will theii-beahigh rate  of interest, will .enable .him to nccumu-  ���������Vite it sinking fund which will redeem  the loan at.the end of the time  Iri his speech in thc House, Mi". Davie  showed clearly that such bonds as were  authorized for the Nakusp & Slocan road  could not have been floated in these  hard times for more than  75 per cent  . of their par value. That this meant a  (shave of over $230,000,) a serious sum to  sacrifice on so small a deal. Air. Davie  not approving of such a sacrifice,'set to  work to ascertain tlie cash cost of the  ,road, and having found that to be $17,-  500 per mile, he used his best endeavors  to get the Canadian Pacific Railway  company to build at that figure. Air.  Van Home however, declined���������showing  that he could see no profit in the undertaking at that figure. Air. Davie then  arranged with the Nakusp & Slocan  company to build at his figure, the company putting up with the government  $118,400 in security, the amount expected  as a subsidy from the Dominion government on the completion of the work.  The O. P. R. company agreed to lease  and operate the road for twenty-five  years, paying the government a rental  equivalent .to 40 per cent of the gross  earnings of the road.  It is clear that when the statute author  ized the guarantee "to the amount of  the cost to the said N. &. S. Ry. Co. of  the said railway enterprise,"' that  this would include the discount  ($230,000) upon the bonds, besides engineering, brokerage and  all other expenses of the enterprise;  The amount of which, added to the actual cash cost of the construction, would  have amounted to fully $925,000, the  limit of the guarantee. After deducting  from this sum the $118,400 put up by the  company, the interest upon the remainder $806,000 amounts to =$32,204 per  annum. Whereas, taking the actual  cost of $647,000 less $118,400 we have interest moneys calculated at the same  rate of 4 per cent, amounting to only  $21,144, a saving of more thanjsufficient  to form a sinking fund to pay off the  entire principal at maturity.  We have heard many ask "Why, if  the government is practically finding all  the money do they not own the road  themselves?" But the government do  not find all the money. The company  has put up $118,400, an amount of capital  not to be found everyday in this country.  The fact is, the arrangement made is  not the best possible arrangement. Now  its author does not, say that it is���������but it  is the best which he could make with  the means and time at his disposal, and  it is a better one than any of those made  by his predecessors.  The opposition has done so much to  damn itself this session I hat it is almost  like hitting a man when he is clown to  say anything against them, but surely  Mr. Beavan would have done well to hold  his tongue about the N. & S. railway  whilst men still remembered that Ihe  Victoria & Sydney railway was guaranteed to the extent of $300,000 for fifteen  miles at 5 per cent, 2-5 being guaranteed  by the government and 3-5 by the city  of Victoria of which Air. Beavan was  mayor.  THE REDISTRIBUTION BILL.   -  The Redistribution,Bill assented toby  the lieutenant-governor on the 21st lias  come to hand. Trail creek, etc., seem to  be left out of the South Riding.  Air. Goepel is collector of. votes for the  the South Riding, and Captain Fitzstubbs  is appointed to the important office of distributing collector. What the respective  duties of these ofticers are, we have not got  through our wool as yet, but will prim the  sections specially importaut to voters in  our next issue.  At the present we may say that,it appears  that the Register, as enisling before passage of the Act, has to be closed by Mr.  Goepel and delivered to Cajifciiiul^itssstubbs,  and then, these two gentlemen have lo  scrutinize the said register, aud in the first  .place,_to_drop_tbei-efroin_.t.h_e_iigmes..of  those whom they cannot Und to be residents. The remaining mimes shall be the  voters entitled to vote at the coming election. "The list showing tlie names dropped,  is then to be published in the gazelle and  iu a local newspaper aud posted on" the  Court Mouse.  Any agonized "droppoe" or ���������'droppee's"  friend has four weeks, from the first jmbli-  cntioii in the Gazette iu which to apply to  Captain Fitzsti.bbs .to .have'his name restored to the register, who, if sul'slicd, liiny  within that period,- insert the mime. - Air.  Goepel, as ' collector, before inserting any  name, may administer interrogatories ii; a  provided form, and require signed answers.  Thc form however, may he varied .to suit  the ��������� circumstances.' This will knock out  many names that have been sneaked uppu  the register. Finally, collectors, oh or before the 15th of June next, have to hold a  court, or courts of revision to hear claims  of any persons who allege that their names  have been omitted or .-improperly struck  off, at least three weeks notice of the holding of such courts to be given.  - Any person dissatisfied with the decision  of the collector-may within 48 hours after  the decision, appeal to the county court  judge.  No liquors can be sold at any hotel or  tavern during the polling day. This will  be pretty hard upon the factionists in this  Riding, whose spirits will require some  "pick me up" on the coming election day.  resolutions to get even with the smiling  gentleman who trotted the innocents up to  the fire hall. 'V-.  As to the delegates, Air. Madden, a very  worthy citizeu iu private life, is the only  married one; the others enjoy singularity���������  we believe���������in this, as in many other respects.

CURRENT COMMENT.  From good authority it is reported that  the Queen and Prince of Wales have given  their consent to the marriage of Lord  Roseberry with Priucess Maud of Wales.  .,    - THOSE   DELEGATES.  To everyone "in the know," the "correct  list", of the faction delegates from Nelson  was arranged long ago. The others on the  list who have countenanced the sorry business were simply "putup" to be' 'put down."  Hence, tears a^.d subdued profanity���������hence  improper expressions applied to one's own  eyes, and what is more important���������hence,  A convention of the Victoria Political  Association was held last week and re-  suited iu the selection of four candidates to  run in the government interest iu the election for the legislature. Messrs. the Hon.  J. II. Turner, R. P, Rithet, H. D. Helmnken,  and John Braden were declared the nominees of the convention.  From the manner in which Ihe government candidates for A7icto'ria. have1 been  received it is evident that the government's ticket is a remarkably strong  one. In the present legislature Victoria  has one government' supporter, and  three independents or oppositionists. It  is quite probable this will be reversed at  the next election.  Our contemporary professes to have as  much knowledge of the Mixer's business,  as of its own, though we should have supposed that the latter might sufficiently occupy its attention.,If the subject interests,  we hasten to assure the Tribune, that we  go on under the same management editorially and otherwise, though not at the  old stand.  Those who profess to know something  concerning the complexion of thecon>  vention delegates appointed on Saturday last, say that King John will encounter some difficulties if he should attempt to force the claims of J. Fred  Hume as a candidate before the convention. Hume will carry a majority if not  all the Nelson delegates and split the  New Denver vote. Bob Green is expected to crowd for a nomination for himself, and the name of another delegate  is mentioned as a probable candidate in  addition to that of John Houston.  Friends of Houston's say he is going to  boost Hume for the nomination and will  not accept_hiniself:" :        r   -       "  - In referring to the men behind the  famous New Denver blanket charter, the  Tribune says:���������"No such company ever  existed, and no petition praying for such  a charter was ever presented to the legislature." The Tribune is correct, but  the Tribune must remember that it advertised the notice of such application.  That the company does not exist is due  to the AIixeu, which exposed the "grab"  which the editor of the Tribune "being  in it" could not do. That such a petition as"was advertised was not presented  to the. legislature, is owing altogether to  the fact that S. Al. "Wharton followed  out the objections, made by the Mixer  and secured a ; general protest from Ihe  mine-owners agaiirst the grab, and that  those seeking the charter dared not affix  their names to the necessary application  to go before the house. The signature  "attorney for applicants" does very well  in the Tribune but does not go down in  the legislature.

If there is anything, in this province,  which the people like in public affairs, it is  the fair and square declaration of an issue  without fence-riding, squirming or shuttling.  They, understand supporting the government, and they understand opposiug it,  but the attitude of the "independent" is  not admired, though the proverb is pretty  true which describes an independent as a  ministerialist. The faction in this district  does worse than advocate so-called "independence"; they are trying to get men together and to induce them to abnegate  their electoral functions, to a few persons  who announce no policy at all. Under  the pretense of conveniently limiting the  number of candidates, they try to organize  a pure and simple opposition to the Premier. This is what their organization  means, though tliey have not the manliness  to say so. We do not think that these  tactics are good,, even from the factionists  point of view. The voters who are tricked,  now, will take it out of the faction at the  polls, when, they come to appreciate the  situation. There are three opposition candidates already, and "more to hear from."  Gome out you hidden sons of Beiiah���������let  us examine your physiognomes.  This rump of a minority could not, indeed, very well, be candid or avow their  real purpose, because the people whom  they seek to hoodwink, are, at. ihis.very  time, asking Mr. Davie to do many things  for them, and trusting to him, as the most  influential man in the country for their accomplishment. They have not the hardihood to ask the sensible electorate of the  south riding to bolster up the present  ragged opposition which-consists of ten'  members in the house, of whom three call  themselves leaders, and from whose company even the adventurous Mr. Kellie retired, unable, as he intimated, to stand  their political inanity and chatter. Neither  could the factionists ask Nelsou to condemn, in favor of that opposition tag-rag,  a government, which lias done so much to  assist the town by liberal expenditure, and  by attention to every reasonable request,  and particularly by enforcing the expressed  wishes of the people upon a powerful railway syndicate, which tried to avoid the  town through the help of a treacherous arid  mendacious local newspaper.  we can, grow our own candidates.' But we  never heard the name of an outsider men- j  tioued, except the impossible Mr. F. S. Barnard, the associate of the editor of thc Tribune in.the now notorious Nelson "Water  and Electric Light, etc., companies ���������  "cincliers" of the inhabitants in nature's  bounties to the town. "Rob me the exchequer," but this is a thin programme���������a  very thin programme to go to the country  with against the evidence of the energy and  liberality of Mr. Davie's administration, afforded by lines of railways, roads, trails,  bridges, wharves, streets and public buildings everywhere iu the district, with  justices, constables and mining recorders  in profusion.  The wretched third article of the programme, namely: the discrimination against  all electors on the register in favor of  those born in a particular precinct, having  been relinquished under a load of derision, may now be passed with the single  .remark, that it shows the utter unfitness  of those who announced it, for any of the  duties or. representatives1 of a self-governing people. Every mother's son of them  should be struck of the register, and disqualified for political functions, for a  lengthened term. Anyone who votes for  such people will be a traitor to the province, and an enemy of the Canadian  nation.  Nor could the attempt of the factionists  to get a snap judgment against the government at Kaslo succeed in the face of the  facts, that last year, the greatest bulk of  the available district funds was spent ou  the Kaslo road, and that this year there i������  a special vote for thc same purpose. Mr.  Davie, we are sure, as far as he was able,  ^has_met_alLreasoi) abl e__req uests_of_th.a_L_en-5  ergetic municipality, and also of the rail-'  way company which might be so useful to  it, aud he will certainly continue to do to.  Certainly the factionists could not ask Slocan to forget the govormnent which has  ��������� staked its existence to give that re-ion a  railway, and to secure its construct inn ill's  year in-order to counteract tlio piesail'ng  .depression. This ..single aciiieveineul ol*  Mr. Davie is equivalent to adding al lea^t  $20 to the -value' of every ton of sliippiug  ore in -Slocan.. Of course the Tribune  abuses the premier for this.  Oh ho! such things as the above could  not be said to the electorate���������the issue  would be fatal. "To tell the truth" would  be to "shame the devil" in the shape of  the faction. Say anything or nothing to  the people; trade upon their candor or  urgent needs; get them to abandon their  franchise to a delegated clique; this is  what the faction could say and has said.  Democracy indeed! why, this is democracy  iri a' very yellow night shirt, wtii���������i even a  Chinaman would not wash. There is not  the sembian'ce 6'f any attribute of popular  goTernment about it: . .  "YesTour programme is thin, but ii is  thick enough for the mob," these factionists practically say. "Blister their eyes!  all we want is the delegation of their  power." "But to what end all this schem  ing?'' the outsider may inquire; such toilsome tricke'rv must be co-operant to some  end. Well,' no doubt it is, arid we can only  repeat the surmise which seems best to tit  the case, namely: that the Premier is bv  nature, conviction and policy, a stumbling  block in the way of the unwholesome class  of "ciuchers," "grabbers" and "bootlickers''  to which the leaders of the factionists be  long. Tlie honest mistaken rank and u\e  of the faction we impute nothing to, they  will open their eyes to the situation long  before.the election, and will exercise their  undivided judgment in the whole matter,  as it is their duty and privilege without  reference at all to this jugglery now guing  on.  So far as can be gathered from their conversation, the leaders of the faction, in  this, their revolt against Canadian common  sense aud ..practice, have imparted, with  their other American methods, the lovely  idea that there are "spoils" ahead on any  change of government. There are no spoils.  Let us consider what would he the result if  the factionists, by some aberrant action on  ���������thc-part-of-the-people,���������were_saccessfuLin.  electing their candidate.: He would have  to.sit uselessly for probably four years;  with the opposition tag rag, listening to  the hum of the government caucus iu a  room which he could not enter, and with  no effective say anyhow or anywhere as to  district affairs. If industrious, he might be  set to humdrum work on formal'committees; if eloquent, he certainly would soon  become a bore. But neither-his i-dustry  nor his eloquence" would influence a single  vote ou the government side of the house,  where Mr. Davie is bound again to sit,  stronger than he now is. Where then is  the sense of running violently and open-  eyed into the engulfing sea���������or, to use a  local simile, "what is likely to be the. fate  of a small group of ground hogs in the path  of ii snowslide. .
