No Opposition Campaign The political canipni(;n for next year's elections is now in full blast. MoetinRS arc being hold all over the country, and \\W political newspapers have ofipncd c held Ruilty of every one of them, while, in the eyes of tlie party accused, they ai-e for the most part the work of vermin who at>tach tlteni-selvos to political parties to their own profit and to the party's un -df>inrsonal Ruilt in any quarter, and wo will let no guilty man escape. Moreover, there is nothing easier than to quote as notoriou.s and fully proved a long catalogue of scandals, without, always troubMng to give proof, while nothing is harder than to run after thofw scandals an�l give what explanation or denial may be /ortbcoming. Over against these assaults on the administrat'ion, the defenders of the government arc fain to uncover what has Ijeen lea rned of the Workings of the Conservative party machine in connection with former election campaigns how Afr. Hugh Graham, for instance, acknowledged under oath to have 8i�ont of his own money some twenty-nine thousand dollars in the Province of Quebec a-lone, and unstated sums in each til the other 'provinces. How the same Mr. Hugh Graham contributed eighty five thousand dollars towards one of the newspaper purchases, and other iinst.Tted sums to other party ser -vices. One would would think such gigantic devotion to the success of the party on one's convictions would be lauded as a very similar instance of self-abnegation in one's country's cause. Vet, .'rtrange to say, it is assumed that it will be taken by every reader as evidence of somtething entirely crooked in the conditions of the party that was thus .served. It seems to be taken for granted that ihe giver had personal expectations, and that the money was for wrong H.sGs. The point dwelt on was thot Mr. Oraham had alleged that a letter had been received from Mr. Borden insttrurting that such moneys �>c"not expended by public men, but by private persons, who had the confidence of the party, and that .in con-seqtionce one of the public men who had been receiving money had ap -pointed a committee to represent himself in the matter. Mr. Borden simply denies having �vritten such a letter or knowing of any such fund. This exhibition of unexpamplcd pati-riot'ism is just treated as one more of those things that are .so crooked, that even a virtuous leader is not to know of it. Here is the trouble of it; nobody believes in political disinterestedness or political hone.sty. Here is the weakness of the ap|)eal to the dec -|,tors based on the wrongdoing of the other side. It is iinpos.sible, for instance for the pi>o�ent Opposition to make that appeal without dwell -ing on the contrast between the pro-fes.>�ions of the liibcrals when in opposition and their alleged perform  ancos when in pi�wer. In so doing they discount their own promises. The people expect a party to back .-slide and when it does so to find ready refuge in recriminations ag -ainst the accused party, and they foresee iiiei-el.y a i>e|>oti't'ion of this process and the pros -peot of a further hardening of the hearts of the people against all ap-j peals to tlnMr Iwtter natuiv. A poll-1 tical campaign based on the cry of turn the rascals out has less and less force as the fjeople got moi>a andinoiv accustomed to accusations of rascality. Tlvo only chance of winning the conscience of the people must lie- in giving thcin aomc tangible hoiw of soiiMAhing bot'li'i- than bringing a new and hungrier gri)ii|( of political hungers on, and poss-ibly more colossal scJiemes than' ever, within ivmcb of the public crib. The fact thot the party making the appeal is the historical pai-t.v oi (/rivilege, and that it was also ihn initiator of that mother of corrupting interests, the t>ro8pective system, d�ios not add to Tits power as n mere protester ag -ainst coruption and promiser of liot-ter things. It is here, however, whore Mr. Iloiden's programme is strong. lie makes definite promises of radial ivfoim. He will require both sides of nil eleictoral accounts to be published-not morol.y the local ntipn, but ns in itiitain, the accounts of all political or�'ani/.ations Apond-ing any money foi' election purposes. He will pcpvirie a public prosecutor whof�.'> business it will lie to follow ftp chargoii of electoral corruption without wuiiting for the iniativc of political opponents pro1>ably efjually compromised. He will put the Inter -colonial Railway aiul other publicly-owned public service into the hands of commissions, protected by the ter.'.s of tlioir appointment from political intcrfei�nce. Ho will sweep a-way, the whole system of political patronage which at present makes it the member's principal duty to provide places (or all who have done anything for tlw party in the light, �ad for ail who without such provision tbreaion to support the other party. All appointments but those of a, necessarily iMjlitical nature will lie filled on the ftrttish comrK?titivfj .sy.stom., Tbis is all good, 'riiesf are things that the party in powt-r will have to do forthwith or show cause why they do not do tliein.-Montreal Witness.

His first wife was a domestic-servant and a ver.v good soul, and here ' at Holly Ixidgc she bore him three ver.v fine daughters, vho afterwards mat- �hI w.ith three noble gentlemen \viho were not averse to a third share in their folher-in-lnw'.s millions when Ml'.

The business man who is solicited to "take a card" in some publication, because he is himself a mcmlwr of some organization, or liecause his customer^ arc, knows perfectly well that so far as public -ity goes, he is going to derive little or no Ijcnefrt.

The great prosperity of the city hasmadu it an attractive field. It has >>ccome commonplace that the best medium for both s(m!cilic and general publicity advertising is the daily newspaper, or, in smaller towns, the weekly iiowspai>er. There are other media of value, but thews are the most valuable. And there is another consideration. Cities and towns are judgotl by the general ap-l>earance' of their newspa|iers, bytheir advertising columns as wel.l as the rest of thoiii. Very lew nowspiipers can lie accused of ros-tricting tlwir development hclow the iimit of their advertising business. The tendency is wholly the other nay. .So that all/, those advertising grafts which dim * inish the fund available for legitimate advertising, not merely fail to sei-�o the purpnue of the advertiser, but injure the general publicity campaign of the pity in which he doos business.
