The question of incorporation for
Yniir has been discussed op several
previous occasions, and on P'lpll of
such occasions the genural consensus
pf opinion, has been, that any step in
that direction would bp premature,
and not tu the best interests of tho
i-oii.tnunity. Circumstances have
however, altered sinoe the last public
discussion and there are two or three
new considerations to bu taken into
account, which put u new   aspect   on
the subject
In the first piece Ymir is, or should
be, the capital city of the new Ymir
lileetoral Division, That it, all the
business connected with the ruling
should he conducted at central offices
in Y'mir. Cleographicallv, it is the
most centrally situated .own of any
M/.e,in tho district. It bus only ono
considerable rival, tbe city of frail,
which has been incorporated since
I001, but which is situated ill one
corner of the riding.
.•should Ymir acquire its proper
place as the olllcitil centre of the Ymir
tiding, it is neither just nor Citing
that it should bo dependent for it-
1,,,-ul government end regulation up,,,
another town.    I' should certainly be
self governing before it   call     hope     to
extend any measure of jurisdiction
over the riding. No one can doubt
the material advantage  which   would

In Montreal niinisleral circles, we
are told, signs ure multiplying which
can leave uo doubt of th:' fact that
the ministry aims at a surprise and a

selected to do that sort of campaigning which cannot be confided to the

The first shot of the campaign will

Sir Wilfrid 1,,-iurii'r, who has not for-
