In   other    _provinces  where the ward system   is adopted  or  not,   ut   the   option   of   the  electors,  municipality    aft"'    municipality   is  abolishing   it.     Uie     latest    striking  instance being the important city of  Hamilton   in Ontario.   The   IIhk.m.d  believes lhat the statutes should  be so  amended' as   to    give    the    Biitish  Columbian   municipalities   this   same  freedomrof retaining or doing away  with the waids as  the local  majority  think   fit.     At  present   there   is   no  option at   all   about   the   matter and  municipalities have  to   divide   Iheni-  selves up into wards,   where  llie  local  conditions   of    size     and   population  render Mich   a  proceeding   most   unreasonable.    It is a matter, which docs  not   affect    the    administration     of  provincial affairs  in  any way   and is  one   in   which   the   electors  of   each  municipality should have the sole bay.  Then there is the property qualili  ration for mayor and aldermen.     The  IIeiiai.n does uot,  go so far as some  people do iu this matter, who wish to  see   all   property  qualifications   abolished.   There is no doubt considerable  force in   the   contention   that  intelligence is quite' as  likely   to   be   found  without pioperty qualification as with  it.   At the same time the possession of  a "stake" in  the  municipality  has Ja  very steadying  ell'ecl   on   those  who  ��������� are responsible for its  taxation.   The  directors of a joint-stock company are  obliged to hold   a   '.-eitain number of  -^shares-ib^quiilify-for-the-officc���������And  the Ilur.Ai.n is of the opinion that  the  stockholders in any company, in which  the directois had no personal inteaest,  would not be unreasonable if they felt  ii certain amount of  uneasiness.    And  although abolition of propetty qualification is a mighty popular cry  on  an  "'  election plat form, we think lhat  even  If   the   property     qualification     was  abolished,     the.   disposition    of    the  electoiu   would be to return only those  possessiiel   ot  sufticient solid   interests  in the cily, iu Lhe shape of dollars and  cents, or tlu'ir equivalent, to  make  il  certain   that   they   would    tic    very  conservative in piling on the lascs.  At the same time certain  changes in  Ihe line ufa. greater  flexibility  in   the  qualification     are.     in     our     opinion  desirable.   The ownei ship of property  aises^ed to an elector on the municipal  assessment roll should qualify without  registration.      And    the.    -registered  encimilirance"    bu*,int*s*-     should     be  removed,    lt does not lessen  a   man's  .Make in thc city, but rather increase*  it.    if   he   has    moil gaged    his    real  estate in older to put money  into his  btiiiness.   The whole mat! er should lie  a  question   of   the    assessment   roll.  Then again  there  is  the case of the  electois, who arc not properly owners  at all, hut   having   put   their   capital  into a business ate ciirrving it  on and  residing in  tented  buildings.    Such a  man lias a stake in  the   town,   quit?  sufficient to wai rant his being allowed  to have a say in the government.  Thsre is another matter which calls  for immediate readjustment.    That is  the poiitioii   of   residents  within  the  ' school district, but without the bounds  pt  the   municipality.     These   people  The, open letter   recently   mlilr. *-:<i-1  hy the premier lo   ih.*   people   of   ihe  province, while .-in inn.ivai ion.    which  might appear almost Mart ling at  liist.  certainly marks a sLep in the direct ii n  of common   sense   anil   open   ticalii g  between the   iicliiiinisir.iliuii 'and   llu-  electorate.    It i> a tradition preservi el  in the old country in all its glory   and  inherited hy (he colonies  without any  notion of its real absurdity,   that   the  policy   of   (he   government    for    the  coining  session   should   be   buggered  muggered up in absolute  sec-ivcy until  it is Hashed upon  the   lieges   in   "the  speech   from   the   throne."      It   is   ii  cabinet secret only to be revealed until  the proper   time-,   which   custom   hns  fixed   upon   as   the   opening    of    the  legislature.      Then   under   a    farcical  pretence of its being his  own   production,     the     lieutenant-governor      or  governor-general, as the case may   be.  rends oil' a speech   carefully   prepared  for him by man. whose ideas   he   may  very pos-iibly   personally   abhor   .*:nd  against whose; policy, he  would   very  likely be* the iir.-������t to   protest,   but,   for  his ollieinl position.

Oct. 11���������tr  The recent manifesto of Mr. Duns-  muir in thc Colonist of Sunday is  looked upon by politicians as the  certain precursor of an election. There  are a good many of tliem ivlio like to  get a biire enough pointer aa to where  thev are at.  January 2-lth is :i week from next  Friday and it is the date of the first  Tlevelstoke Hospital Ball. Tliis affair  will lie the event of the winter and  everybody sho-.ild make a point of  combining a pleasant evening with  assistance to a deserving institution  by taking it in,  Cut the Wires and Sent Despatch Which Gave the Union  Pacific Telegraphers a Raise  of Salary and Recognition.  During llio !,il U-r p.ntof lhe Gould  regime 0:1 lhe Union P.icilii', the Older  ut' li.iilwny Telegraphers presented a  demand for ol'iiei.il recognition -mil  alio for a blight ineroase in salaries.  The matter dragged along without, 1.11  agreeinenl having been renched, until  ���������in ultimatum was deliveted to the  i'iulri*,id nll'u'ials. Tliis ultimatum set  foi lh lh,it il hy noon nn a certain d.iy  1 lie deiniui.ls of tho men were not  .ivccik'd to, a general strike would be  01 (lured.  At, llie S'uuc lime, Jay Uou'.il, Geo.  Gould ar.d a lew friends occupii'd Mr.  Goulu'o private car, which was on a  siili'-liiu*k up iu Idaho, near .Shoshone,  ihe p.irly having gone thither for a  couple of weeks liout fishing in the -  mountain slieaiiiM.  Failing in their elVuils to bring aboul  .1 settlement of llu* difficulty, the  Union Pacilic ollicials at Omaha laid  the matter befuie llie elder Gould, who  ���������issumed tho rc-potibihilily, bill he  reiunininl silent, evidently having  made up his mind either not lo ireat  wilh the committee of telegraphers  o ��������� lo hold out and await developments.  It has never become known jusl w.hal  Mi*. Gould's idea was.  At any riite. the day scheduled for  tumble ,-urived, The Omaha otUcials  began lo worry, for in case of a strike  i.he toad would have been tied tip  absolutely. Nothing indicating what  policy Mr. Gould meiiiit to pursue was  known in Omaha. The case was to be  letlled by one man, who might, aa  time passed, be enjoying himself in  coaxing speckled beauties Irom their  liaiini*=; or, bo might be considering  die mailer in his car. Under any  circumstances, he was away off in the  mountains on a lonely sidetrack,  ilmost out of the world.  At 10 o'clock iu the morning lhe  telegraphers' committee notified the  Union Pacific officials at Omaha, that  but, two In.ui-a' of grace remained, and  nobody knew better than those officials, Ihnl trouble was sure to come ��������� if  favorable action was not taken within  the two hours. ���������  lOleven o'clock, mouniain time, had  arrived, and yet no word had come out  ofthe mouniain retreat. There was ���������  an ominous silence on all wires of the  system, only broken by occasional  signals wliich were flashed back and  forth bj'^ the waiting telegraphers, * .  between themselves. At 11*15 the  ���������lespatchers began lo insure the safety  ol all trains by" holding, them at  various stations as they arrived; for  trains cannot' move in safety without  lhe telegraph.  It was neai ly 11:30 when one of the  through wites opened for an instu.nL:  1 here was a monientaiy ratlle of the  instruments along the line, and iiu^  experienced, steady, but slow working  hand began to rail Cheyenne:  The signal was promptly answered  and-a telegram was received for Omaha  asking for information as to the'  condition of trains, thc probable ability  to equip the telegraph offices with  o'hsr men, etc,. The telegram cams  direct from the Gould car and the  operator who sent it was GeoegeJ.  Gould, who hadhiinself cut'thc win,  run it into tho car, connected it, and  assumed the duties of operator.  Mr. Gould's telegram was, as may be  imagined, answered immediately.  Excitement was at fever heat. Officials  were nervous, and the.operators were  anxious, but dolerniined.     Along lhe  liiio-tlio-instruinoiitsiwsre��������� cui!!iug_=out_ =  tho time as the minutes sped.    Occasionally   some   brotherhood   executive  * -.  would use first tliis wire, then that '  one, ' with words of, encomagement  and caution. Now' aud then1' wires  which had not pioduccd a sound for  30 minutes would carry the message,  '���������15e firm."   "Unsigned.  AL 11:150 no word indicating Mr.  Gould's probable act mi had yet been  received. The Union Pacific rnilioad  was just ten minutes from temporarily  going out. of .business. Tune, by.  minutes, was being called along the  wires.  '���������Eleven firiy: be firm!" "11:51; do  not commit any foolhardy acts." "11:52;  do not weaken;'''and so on.  Then'the Gould wire opened. George  Gould';, sending was again in evidence.  Was he about to order a favorable  scltlement? Hundreds of ears along  the line eagerly listened for the words  as thep came from thecal' up^in the  mountains. It was- only another-  message from Omaha, and unimpor  Innt. Strange titnr, lhat. for ordinary  telegraphing. lf  "Eleven fifty-seven; it looks  like a  baltli'," thc telegraphers sent along the  ,  word.  It was 11:57 when Jay Gould weakened. George Gould could hear and  read the signals on the wire. He  could tell from what he heard that  trains were side tracked; that the  operators weie not jesting: and tbat  thn ollicials were preparing to go out  of business.  Perhaps the Goulds didn't like Lhe  idea of being in .-'. car 2,500 miles from  home, 1.000 miles of which distance  was covered by a railroad which could  not safely run its trains in case he  refused to favorably decide. Perhaps  if Jay Gould had been in his "Wall  street office he -would " have done  atherwisc than adopt the operators'  s chedule.  but at   the  last   moment  I George    Gould    telegraped,     "Grant  operators' demands."
