ELECTIONS It is rather unusual for constituencies to return opponents of a govoru-menl, no matter its complexion, os pccially when tiie foct stares them in the face thot that government is m power for four or Ave years at any rate. The electors of Yolo Cariboo and Kootenay assumed that attitude in no unpronounced manner oii Thura day and the Liberals lose two scats. The reason for this step no doubt is the' dissatisfaction of the people of Bri tlsh Columbia with the treatment mot ed out to thot province at the last conference of I'rovincial Pi-cmiers, when Premier' McBride failed to secure the better terms he had asketl for and also the cry against Asiatics. It was urged that the Liberals were not pronounced enough in their opposition to this class of immigration, though Hon. Frank Oliver made it quite clear in his speech at Fernic that,the Liberal party was determined to have a white Canada. The main i.ssues in Columbia were of a local nature. National questions had very little consideration. The government must recognize from the verdict thot British Columbia is dissatisfied but whether its dissoti.sfuction is basc management and a suggestion I has been made that a representative Forostry in N�w England (From the Hnrvarl Courant.)' Corporations and private oltiaens thi-oughout New England are begin ning to Realize the opportunities which this regions offers for profllablo forest planting. This year about 2, 600 acres have been planted in the six New Kngland States by private citizens. In addition a number of water companies have been adopting a forest jjoliey. One of the most important phases of refornuition in New Knglund is| tliat of planting iibandonod farms and otlicr waste land which at present is bringing no income. In Massae'iusi'tts this waste land amounts to 10 p(>r cent, of the total area of thi> State, while the latest reports in Rhode Island show 228 of the piofession .should have a seat I "l^o'i'l"""" I' "I CHOICE Dntarlo Whiter Apples In Boxes and Barrels I j land whicli is now being planters.

TTo Is only one although the hig one. tf the electors think enough of Dad to elect hliu by acclamation, they should think enough of him to give him some helpers instead of clogs in his wheel of progress. Ne.xt year's council should not contain any long-winded, vociferous, verbose chumps who want to air their views on everything from market reports to typhoid fever on every motion; neither docs it want any shrun-kt>n-soulod narrow-minded, two-by-twice, cent belt cranks pursuing e "penny wise pound foolish "polie.v;" neither should it contain of the opposite stripe who will make the city's money How like water into every lurid scheme advanced by some citizen or advertising or canvassing agent. But it should contain men who know what mono.v is, who know where it comes from antl what it is for, who have business ability sufTic-ient to distinguish between a gold brick and a ten dollar gold piece, who go strong on the enforcement of the law. who havo good character, sound judgment and a sincere desire to do the square thing by all hands. There are lots of them in tho city j^nd there arc lots who are not qual-llicd. When a man has a bigger idea of his own ability than other people have, it is a sure sign that he is lacking in tho qualilleations of an al-ileniien.
