Thsre is no necessity for any cu-  lcg..* of tbe police force for tho  briiefit of our readers in the North  AVest. They know well enough  jtvii't services the Mounted Police  have rendered to this country, nor  Is It at all necessary to dl3cuss their  personal qualifications.

Thc  olhsr day cuttle from thc Argentine  icp.iblie and IJiuguay were prohibited from being landed in Great Britain because of llie prevalence In  thc.-.o coisntiiis of foot and mouth  d!;iase, one of the most contagious  of cattle distempers. It is now alleged that thc disease has been detected in cattle from the United  Stales landed at Dcptford. Should  thc diagnosis prove lo be correct,  tho cattle of the United Slates will,  as a matter of course, be treated as  have been those of the Argentine republic; and if the cattle of the  United S ales are shut out possibly  those of Canada will hardly faro bettor. The experience of Great Britain  with cattle plague has been so disastrous lhat no risk of infection  from foreign animus will he taken.  The matter is one that tho Canadian  authorities should give prompt at  tontion lo, in order that the beat  case that can be mado for Canadian  cattle shall bo ready in case it is  needed. Tlie record of the pleuropneumonia scheduling is proof, of  how serious a result may follow a  very small cause.  renewal of their  confidences.*  Briefly  the situation   Ib this.     In  18112   the  farmers    wore    paying  12  cents per pound for blndea* twine and  to lessen this cost to the farmer. Sir  John   Thompson's   government   started  to  make twine  In Kingston penitentiary.    That  was the   avowed  object of starting tho manufacture and  as such it was continued.    Today the  VJberals  have   changed   all   this   and  openly   say  that   the  manufacture  of  twine  is  continued only  as a  means  to   furnish   tho   convicts   with   labor  and that   it Is  not intended  to enter  into   competition   with   the   ring    "or  combine.     Bo   that   as   it   may,   the  result  to   the  farmer  under thc .two  governments has  been  directly of an  opposite  character.    Under  the  com-  pctotlve   system,   as   introduced   and  maintained hy the Conservatives,  the  price   to   thc  farmers    gradually  fell  from   12   conls   in   1S92    to  li   and  1  cents   in   1SD5-9C.     During  the   latter  two   years   under     tho     competctivc  system   twine   reached    its     lowest  price.    Then  camo   tho* Liberal  government and thoy undertook  to turn  upside down thc methods of the Conservatives.        All     competition     was  withdrawn.    The  government  looked  upon tho  manufacture  ot twine only  as   a   means   of   furnishing  the   convicts   with   labor   and     thoir   friends  with   plenty   of   money.       They-   sell  their   prisonmade   twine     to   friends  for a   miserable   pittance  and   enable  those  latter  to   extort   the  full   combine  price   from    thc  farmers.   What  Is  the  result?    Up    goes    thc    price  again.     Last year it was high.    This  year it will be higher still, probably  10 or ,17 cents.  Tho contrast in result of the. policies of thc two parties is very-  marked. Under the Conservatives  tho price fell from 10 and 12 cents  to C and 7 cents; under tho Liberals  the prlco rose from G and 1 cents  to 16 and 17 cents, as it is now  known  it will  be this  year.  If this does not open the eyes of  our farmers to the beautiful economies of this Ottawa government  then  we  know  of  nothing that will.   o   MR.   HALEY,   M.   P..

He can be registered iu half a dozen  constituencies if he lias property  thcro,"*and ho can voto in them all.  But it prohibits the Ontario man  fiom voting more than once. An.  Ontario man may have properly in  half a dozen counties; but let hiui  try to exercise tho right the Quebec  man has and to jail he will go.  This is an impudent discrimination  bct-wcen men: it was designed by  Laurier to give tho . Quebec man  greater .power at Ottawa than the  Ontario man ��������� enjoys. This last  scheme of disfranchisement is nu  insult to loyal Canadians. Its solo  purpose is to wipe from thc list of  electors thousands of men who are  hated by the Ottawa rulers ot today, because their presence in tho  military service indicates that thoy  are pro-British and thoroughly loyal.  This Ottawa government is becoming disgusting.

Maseru, Basutoland, April 21.���������The  Boers around Wepener have been reinforced'and are now stronger than  ever. The firing of canon was heard  today in the direction of De Wet's  DorE and is looked upon as meaning  that the relief column was approaching. Heavy firing is hourly expected.  Two large Boer forces left the vicinity of Wepener this morning, one  going in llie direction of De Wei's  Dorf and the other ���������'. towards Rouxville. The Boers are excited and jubilant iir consequence of President  Steyn's assertion that foreign intervention is certain, and that it is only  necessary to continue the struggle for  a short time. Generals Dewet and  Olivier are inspiring the burghers  with Inflammable' patriotic speeches.

Without attaching undue importance  to  the  stories  from  Lorenzo  Marques  concerning  the    strength  of  the Boer  forces it .would   almost seem that the  former  estimates  of 30_D00  was rather  low.     During the last few days there  has  been  a  renewal   of  Boer  activity  in air points of* the theatre : of action.

A mpetingof Mr. Martin's supporters  wns held on Wednesday evening to  urrange for a convention to select a  candidate. It was decided to call for  33 delegates from the riding.

Marehalsoy. J. Anderson. F. B. Lewis,  nnd J. D. Doyd, T. -Sweeney. S. D.  Crowle, D.K. McPbers-nn an ijltci-mites.  ���������The dnte of I lip convention was fixed  im Mav ."ilh.  Hon. Joseph Martin is not exactly  sweeping the country in his tour  through the Interior. At Ashcroft*  they were actually going to puss n  vote of want of confidence iu his  government at the very commencement of tlie meetings had not Mr.  Murphy, the opposition candidate  intervened and secured him a hearing.  At North Bend the meeting was  obviously hostile to his colleague, Mr.  Beebe, lhe government candidate for j  riding and at Lytton they would not  give Mr. Beebe it hearing at. all. In  Dewdnoy, Mr. McBride the opposition  candidate, carried the meetings with  him at every point and* made Mr.  Martin cut a very poor figure over tlie  matter of the Dewdney trunk road,  which Mr. Martin had most emphatically refused a Dewdney delegation to  build, while in office, while at the  same time the Semliu government  were offering a million dollar grant to  the Pacific cable scheme. Mr. Martin  had to upologize for his stand on this  matter. At Mission City the Premier  is reported to have lost all control of  himself, yelling at the top of his voici*;  that "a man, who voted for McBride  would vote for a yellow dog," It is  very evident that Martin candidates  have very little shew in these two  constituencies of West Yule and  Dewdney and besides this now comes  the news that Mr. Ryder, his finance  minister, has failed to get the nomination in Comox.  In Revelstoke our public meetings  are almost, proverbially fair and good  humored, bjt tlie tolerance with which  Mr. Martin was received here on  Saturday last was the tolerance of  people to whom ths result of lhe  coming election is already 11 foregone  conclusion, as far as their own constituency is. concerned. We were  Unite pleased to meet, most of us for  thc first time, a gentleman like Mi*.  Martin, who is such a celebrity in  Dominion and Provincial politics and  glad to hear what he hud to say for  himself, but the effect of the meeting  on Mr.Taylor's already assured victory  was quite inappreciable.  So fur not a single member of Mr.  Martin's cabinet, except himself, has  been able to find 11 constituency which  he will be. able to contest wilh any  reasonable prospect of success and iu  only very few ridings have any  candidates been brought out in support  of his government. One is  templed to agree with Ralph Smith  that it is waste of time to discuss the  Martin platform, since there is no  chance that Mi*. Martin will ever be in  a position to carry it out.
