Stock ofPnper Hangings-at Residence WELLINGTON FAtfl LMTt' MU9T BE HAD (Brantford Expositor.) The Dominion Government has giv- en up its intention of having nitoba lists revised un- der Dominion auspices. The listfi, as recently prepared and audited under provincial will be accepted; and a board of judges will superin- tend the distribution of the voters into the various Dominion constit- uencies and the allocation of the same to their respective polling sub- divisions. The "Provincial lists of British Columbia, with which the Li- berals are fairly well satisfied, will also accepted, But in the six constituencies of Ontario, which are not yet'municipally organized, the government'will lists pres pared anew, under the committee of judges, who wiU" also revise them. The unorganized districts of Quebec will not be touched, however; us the number of people afTccted is not thought sufficient to justify the ex- pense that would be incurred in car- rying out the work. Whatever done in the way of preparation, re- vision ur allocation will done by judges or their appointees; so that the whole'of it, so far as the'Domin- ion government is concerned, will be done impartially and with no chance of partisan bias. The Dominion government, in this matter, has set an example, which, it is to" be the provincial ad- ministrations will follow; and then there will no longer be room for the j rejxjated insinuations of misconduct and of actual electoral misdemeanors which have disgraced Canada's poli- tical history since Confederation. The Dominion Elections Bill, in its other provisions, cuts at the root of mamr of the devices, which have been resorted to for the purpose of pre- venting the true will of the elector- ate being reflected in- the declaration of the-election; and a deputy return- ing officer will no longer be able to void a. ballot by writing upon it, Auction Sale of Stock p.m. Gibbon will conduct a sale of etc; as above, and invite.. .'further entries of stock for inclusion in this Gbbon 410 ItOUND STREET TELER'NXDNE Qei CMEER OF BRYAN NEVER SAW AUTO NOR RODE IN STREET CAR 4 i ftftd M M Convict Releaswi After Spending 27 Years irrJoliet Prisan Chicago, .July spending 27 of the- best years of liiV with the horixon of hisVworld limited to the stone walls of Jolict penitentiary, and his down by the routine of a convict's existence, John Gale, aged 49, but appearing to be 60, stepped into the world yester- day.

The whole spirit of the bill is a transparent attempt to secure purity in politics; and1, as such it will add greatly to the rep- utation of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his government, being in itself acorn plete refutation of.the many slander- ous'suspicions of sinister motives, with which the introductions of the bill was heralded by its opponents. The compromise, which was come to over the Manitoba lists, was made in the light of a concession on 'tfie part'bf" the 'Roblfn 'go'v'erhnientT instead of confining revising judge to a short sitting of a few- the end of which he must close his court whether the business was closed or not, enabled him to adjourn -his court and sit' another day to conclude the bnsiness, which remained over from the previous sitt ing. This, Sir Wilfrid Laurier thought, placed the Literals of Mani- toba on a fairer footing with their opponents; and gave them a more rea sohable opportunity to rectify the partisan bias, which the lists had the hands of registra- tion'cterks, who, it should be remem befed; are the appointees of the Rob liir government and are- invariably Conservatives, ready to strain the trying te; find'Mvork which willvbe neither too hard for an old man's aody nor -too exacting for the child ish simplicity of a boy of years ago Life" iiT penitentiary lias dulled but not hardened Gale, and yesterday he showed the ea go rness of a ch only a few months when in, a fight '.at Kvanston he killed a- fellow laborer with a hatchet.

A second experiment, perhaps more vital still is and will be open to the fullest test when ripens. The first experiment in wheat; the second in pats: M. Vilmorin, most famous of all French has-recently found and produced a series of wheats of exceptional quality. These, after the most careful ingenious system of selection, have been in Norfolk..by Mr. Charles Masters, of East.Lynn, with surprising results. which has been in full ear for ten days or so. Whatever weather we get it will be ripe in six or seven weeks, a fortnight before English sown at the same time under similar conditions. The straw is wonderfully strong and the ear full. The experiments seem to have proved: First, the fact of this early matu- rity, which may mean the salvatior of a harvest. "Secondly, thai thi transference of a grain' from on country to another adds very largeh to its quality. Fanners in the north of France are repurchasing of those An- glicised French wheats for seed pur- poses. They have visited Norfolk and seen with delight the success of this latest "Sensation." Even on. lat? land the forwardness is astonishing. The kernel is very much larger than in popular "British wheats, the straw firmer and not too long, and the fact of the earlier maturity cannot bu doubted.
