From Our  Own CorrespomU-ni  Ottawa,   July  25.���The   Montreal Herald, a few days, ago published a remarkable letter  from  Mr. John Hague,  editor of the  Journal of Commerce,  purporting to give the inside history of  the preparation  of   the   gerrymander bill of 1882.    Mr. Hague  tells how, at the  request of  Sir  John Macdonald, iie prepared an  electoral     map     showing <��� "the  vote     in      the      various    constituencies at the two previous  elections:    "I'was informed" he  says,   "that  what   the   Govern-  , ment wished to effect was a- rearrangement of the electoral districts, so far as  possible  recog-  .nizing a common   unit,.of repre-  .sentation.'' This however was to  , lhe made sufficiently elastic to alio**  the   grouping  ,of   different  ���sections of the districts so as  to  ? detach Conservative voters from  places where they were in excess  of the needs for a majority,   and  ,lhe attachment of such voters to  districts where the new acces-  , siou"would turn the scale  at  an  election in favor of a Conservative candidate, .where"a Liberal  had     hitherto   been    returned.  ,'EleotoraJ   districts  which  were  hopelessly Liberal, were if possible, to be abolished, or the constituencies so arranged as to put  the Liberal votei'S'-altogetlier in  one . district,   especially   where  they could bo drawn away  from'  ,r�� district where they   menanced  tlie Conservative candidate.  ,1 >      ; i  tllVIXO  THK  GRITS. t  The  process  was!' afterwards  called 'hiving' which-is quite appropriate, though while the work  was being  done  for  the  act of  ' J 882' this word was never used.  After making a "colossal chart, I  took each "electoral' district  its  surroundings  in  liau'd,  j wrote   upon   each,   lhe  number  polled for each party at1 the two  'previous elections the total num-  of electors with the majorities in  each case.    I  colored  each' district so as to show at  a  glance  its political complexion.     I then  xnade a thorough- study of- the  official returns  of  the  two  last  elections and, took out hundreds  of statistics for comparison  and  -readjustment.    Some of the districts were most difficult to alter  .so,as to secure the results desired.    It was  said  the  configuration of these represented  nothing on earth, in the heavens,   or  iu the waters under the heavens.  Quite true;���they simply  represented an effort, to fix the boundaries of  electoral   districts   according to two rules: first on tlie  principal'of equal representation  to equal,numbers of voters: second on the  principal   that elec-  ['toral districts should be arrang-  I ed, to aerve lhe interests  of  the  t?-party in power when   they  are  rearranged: i  These rules do not  '-work, well   together,   hence  the  highly ocei'iitric shapes of some  of the districts  on   the  chart  1  .have constructed.      The  gerrymander act as it was called   was  simply  llio  chart  I   have   constructed expressed in legal language."*  There'ic nothing  particularly'  new  in   this, confession   of  Mr.  Hague's, for i,t has been   practi-)  cally   admitted  often times that  ' the principals actuating the  i'ra-  |' mer* of the last two  redistribution, bilJs   wore   exactly   those  and  and  Justice    charged    all    sorts    of  things   iu  connection   with   this  matter.    Cabinet,   ministers   had  paid their private  debls  out  of  the fund. Liberal candidates had  drawn  on   it for  their  election  expenses,    party    workers   had  made a good thing  for  themselves on the side and  in   fact the  public monies had been squand  ered right and left.    Every facility was given Sir  Hibbert Tup-  per to prove his charges and any  aud all witnesses  whom  he  desired   were   called   before   the  Committee.       The    result    was  complete   failure   to  prove  one  solitary    allegation,    but   nothing daunted Sir Hibbert  declared that if  the  matter  u*as  laid  over till   this  session  he  would  prove everything.'     The' matter  was laid over at his request.' All  manner of returns were ''prepared at considerable, cost, and now  after the  Government  had   put  every possible facility at his disposal, Sir Hibbert abandons his  investigation and practically admits that he had   no   evidence  whatever upon which to base his  reckless charges,    but   that   he  was only fishing,   in the  vague  hope  of discovering  something  to make a fuss about.  NOT  AFRAID   OP  THE   LIGHT.  The "alacrity with' which the  Government acceded to the Opposition request for an investigation by the Committee on privileges and elections into alleged  crookedness in the West Huron  and Brockville elections rather  astonished the gentlemen on Mr.  Speaker's left, though ��� by this  time they ought to know, that  the Government is prepared to  offer every facility for legitimate  investigation whenever even a  semblance of a cause for such an  investigation can be found. ��� The  to .-et forlh 1 lie ad vanta goons enjoyed by their countrymen already reaping the benefit.-, of the  change'. The crop outlook so  far as Mr. Devlin had 'been able  to ascertain was decidedly favorably. He will return to Ireland more than ever favorably  impressed with Manitoba and the  Northwest. Hi.s recent experience will further qualify him for  speaking from personal ( knowledge of the great advantages  Canada offers as a field for settlement".'  J-UOUOGATION   IN  SIGHT.  Business is rushing on Parliament Hill these days and eacli  twenty-four hours sees more  solid work accomplished than  wa.s recorded in a whole month  at the beginning Of the session.  The Redistribution Bill has passed through the House and is now  before the Senate. All other  important Government measures  are well advanced. Private business is being rapidly cleared' off.  the order paper.���and most- important of all perhaps,���members on both sides of the House  are getting sick and tired of the  session and will rejoice to hear  the guns of prorogation - booming. Another ten days should  suffice to wind up the business  and in fact the end of next week  will find very'few "legislators in  their seats.  Most accurate  Sullivan.

After all perhaps it is money well spent, for  it gives the/country absolutely  unimpeachable evidence that the  Administration is clean aud honest.  DEATH    OP    SENATOH    SAXPOKD  -The tragic  death   of  Senator  Sanford by drowning in Musko-  ka has called forth  wide-spread  expressions of,sympathy and regret.    The deceased gentleman  was ' particularly  well  liked  in  the halls of legislature, irrespective of politics,'" he was a. favorite  with all with whom she came  in  contact.    Appointed to the Senate    by    Sir   John    Macdonald  though he was  prepared   at all  times to give an intelligent  consideration to current  events  he  was   not   an   ardent   politician.  Blessed  with abundance of  this  world's goods amassed   through  his own   industry  and  integrity  he gave liberally to such religious  and   philantrophic   projects   as  commended   themselves   to   his  judgment.       Though an American by birth he was  thoroughly  British in all his sympathies and  within the  four  corners  of  lhe  Dominion   there   could  not    be  found a , more  loyal  and  whole  hearted Canadian   than  William,  Eli Sanford.

Power has been transiiiitt<*d a  mile by steel rope for the purpose of pumping from a well  nearly 100U feet deep to supply  water to a mill"near Calico. Cal.  .There is a distinction between  forfeiture and abandonment of a  location. Abandonment is intentional, and operates immediately; forfeiture is unintentional  and results from non-compliance  with the ��� reqtiirein-'iits of the  law.  Within two years California  will have inines over 800U feet in  depth. There are several shafts  now down to the I'U'Kt-foot mark,  or near it. and some below it.  When the new' Kennedy shaft in  Amador county, Cal.. reaches  the proposed=depth of '37)00 feet,  it will be about 2000 feet below,,  the level of the ocean.  was noi always an easy man to  approach^ but jm_this case he  stopped and listened attentively  to what the man had to say. 115s  remarks were too low to be heard  from my standpoint, but it was  soon quite evident that ho was  talkiin- about a mine, for he produced froin his pocket a small  piece of ore and proceeded to describe the elaini. From his ges  tures I concluded he must have  a very large mine and the small  sample was evidently very rich  ore. As I have already said, I  could not hear what he said, but  the remark of Mr. M 1 heard  readily, lie suddenly interrupted the prospector with the remark: "Don't you know you are  lying'-1 If you had a mine like  that 1 would give you $:.',.>00,-  HVO." Having heard his reinark  and seen M -walk away, leaving  the prospector staring after him,  I could easily imagino what he  had been saying. 'That is the  trouble, with -most prospectors.

Those who contemplate engag-j  ing in mining 'who have no prac  Xical ex peri nco would do well to  employ some competent 'and reputable mining* engineer to assist in the enterprise. Io outline  the development of lhe'mine and  determine the character of mach-  ,'inery and the profess to be employed at least. .Inexperience  and .self-reliance have proven  very expensive to some investors' in mine.*, in California aud  elsewhere.  The throw of faults is not always at right angles to their  strike. Very freipienlly there is  a lateral as well as a vertical dis-  ' placement, and this tact may result in deceiving the miner  searching for the con ti nun we of  a faulted vein, for where the  vein is found of the opposite hide  of the fracture it. may not have.  on. the same level. Lhe same  width and Other characteristics  in which case it might ��� be mis-  t, ikon for another vein.  The subject of county  mining  bureaus for the .various   mining  states 1ms been* referred to herein before.    Each  county   should  take steps to make a typical collection of its valuableort's. rocks  and minerals and place  them  on  exhibition in some suitable place  at the county   sent.      When   exposition are held such as that  to  ' be opened   at   Paris   next   veto,  the best of   the  collection   could  be boxed, -.hipped to ihe exposition   and    returned    when    ihey  were no longer required.      Once  established miners'and mine owners would soon take pride in it,  and the natural  result  would   bf  in lime that each   county   would  possess the best possible exhibit  of its mineral resources,  collected at the leas Impossible cost,   and  it  could   not   fail   to , become   a.  source of both pleasure a rid'profit.     V       '������' ���   :V  : The terms strike and dip, as  referred to veins', have been judical ly defined as follows by Judge'  W. H. Beatty. says the Mining  \fc Scientific Press. "The strike ;  or course of a vein is determined  by a 'horizontal line drawn between its extremities at' that  depth at which it attains its  greatest' longtitudinal extent."  The dip of a vein, .its course  downward, at right angles to its  strike;' or. in other words, if a  vein is cut by a vertical plane at  right"angles to it's course, the  line of-?section will be the lineof  dip. The strike or course of a vein  can'never be exactly 'determined  until it hasbeen explored -to its  greatest extent; but a compara-,  tively slight development near  the surface will generally show  its,course with 'sufficient accuracy for the purpose of a location.  The dip having an exact mathematical relation to the course of  vein, is. of course, undetermined;  but practically the line-of dip is  closely approximated by taking  the steepest (nearest the vertical) line by which the vein cau  be followed downward. ,  -*  CARLIN  <fc DURICK  gp     Manufacturer of all Kinds of dumber,      A large assort-  2~ ' ���        merit of seasoned Lumber aiid.
