Andgthat reminds us, why is not the range put into operative order THE election bills for the last general election are now being paid in this singu- lar manner. A portion only of each bill is allowed, and a per cencage, only, of such allowance is now paid. FELL last night a drunken man named Lynn, in making erratic nocturnal explorations, tumbled into a cellar, lately dag on Garry Street, by Mr Gingras. He lit upon his head and, be- tween mud and demoralization, being unable to extricate himself, sung out lustily, and a number of people from the Dominion Hotel came to his assistance pnd pulled him out. They didn't get him all, though, for his hat was 'there this morning. TBQS Celebrated the Thirteenth. In the forenoon of yesterday a strong muster of the two city lodges of Orange- men, and a delegation of Brethren from Headingly, took place at the Orange liodgo., and at about 11 a pro- cession was formed spread to the breeze the bright colors the greater than any previous procession had in this city, looked extremely gay. The Orange District Band, under the ex- cellent management of Mr. H. Walker came out strong and rather surprised many of our citizens who little thought they had so good a band among them. The procession moved down Mam Street and to the charming grove of Mr. Ban- nerman, near St. John's Cathedral, to which it Was followed by large numbers of citizens in carriages. The spread, provided by Mr. Joseph Devlin, af the. Eureka House, was extremely good and evinced a desire to provide am- ple quantity as well as good quality. Af- ter doing ample justice to the" good things. Mr. Stewart Mulvey, as Chair- rna.n called the meeting to order, and after speaking briefly, introduced Mr. Corrigal of Headingly, who Rpoko at some length upon the subject of the day. Some other speakers who wore expected to deliver addresses, not being forthcom- ing, Mr. Mulvey again took the plat- form, and in a most felicitous vein en- tertained the company to an excellent and much applauded speech. The band very nicely filled up the intervals in the programme. A number of swings had been erected and these were kept in con- members interested, stant service. The merry-go-round man .wi 11 establish boards of enumerators who! fourteen English to ton French DM and Bill of the old Government Jo do such a way a.s to pre- that. and do it in v w j, serve almost intact those ancient land- marks, and at representation :KJ same to tho time give due new comers? Elections. He thought the boards of enumerators would cost ler-s as well as be more efficient. They would introduce retrenchment wherever possible and if the House would give them, a fair trial they would endeavor to leave the finances to their successors in a better condition than they had found it. PETITIONS. Hon Mr Howard presented a petition from Henry Prince (chief; and others praying that the name of St Peters be t j Dynevor. MOTIONS. Moved by Hon Mr Girard seconded by Hon Mr Hay, that the orders of .the day for the 8th July be discharged. (Car- ried.) Hon Mr Royal said that it was all very well for the Government to discharge the measure of the late Government but he did not think it righu to discharge the notices of private bills by members for .1 he Bill now before the Housedid -rcui "ijustic to the old wttlers. and he thought it a sad thing to see those old pioneers, who had struggled lontr and hard in the midst of difficulties and dangers, to be wiped out of existence by those creatures who have come in the last year or two. He thought that due consideration should be given to the old sealers as well as to the new. and as a representative man of the old settlers he protested against the pacing of the Bill in its present shape, treating them as it djd, with contempt and injustice.

The sample shown us is four inches wider than imported blankets, and weighed eight pounds. Thesn blankets can be produced at a cheaper rate than is paid for the imported article. Messrs. McVic- ar have already received an extensive order. Humors of the Route. About half way between Oak Point and Winnipeg there is a cireek where immigrants and other people travelling along the road camp. A few ago as some parties wei-e coming along they observed near the creek a pole about ten feet high stuck in the ground and a piece of "pork, and a tin of butter attach- ed to it. On a slip of paper was writ- ten: ''Contributed to the paupers of the awbon Road; eat hearty." On another slip of paper was written: Stay, vreury traveller, thank your GcdT You're safely o'er the Dawson Koad I'm sure it will do you some good To take a little food. 'Gainst do not mutter, You're n-eJcome fo this and butter." Tho pic-nic, and indeed every portion of the clays proceedings, passed off in a quiet, orderly, and highly satisfactory manner, and the Orangemen of Manito- ba are to be congratulated upon the suc- cess of their annual celebrations. In the evening the excursion was well patronized, the commodious barges of the Prince Rupert being well filled. The band was present and furnished capital dancing music, which was taken advan- tage of by the boys and girls to the full- est extent. The best of good humor prevailed, and everybody was apparent ly determined to enjoy tho thing hugely. The rain which set in just as the excur- sion was winding up, afforded pleasing variety to the programme, and fluttering ribbons were flattened out, and much ornamental skirt was got ready for the washtub. Take thinga all in all, as they occur- red, let us say, Hurrah for the twelfth of July, even if it does come on the thirteenth. The weather throughout the day, al- though a trifle warm, could not have been made much bettor for the purpose. i the Manitoba Southern Railway Co.

MONDAY. July 13th, 1874. The Speaker took the chair at 3 p.m. Hon. Mr. Girard said before proceed- ing to business he wished to give fuller information to the House than he was in a position to do on Wednesday last Owing to Hon. Mr. McKay's illness they had not completed the Cabinet at that time, but since that they had seen him and on their earnest request he had agreed to accept the same position that ho held in the old Government, there- fore Hon.

Mr. Girard said they would do that after, but he thought it, wa.s right enough to say what committee should be appointed. The motion was then carried and on motion of Hon. Mr. Girard, the f'ohow- ing were appointed a committee to strike the standing committees, Hay, Davis. Itoyal, Norquay, Sutherland, and Girard. Hon. Mr. Hay introduced the Bill fur tho Registration of Voters, which was considered, read a first time, second read- ing on Wednesday. Hon Mr Hay introduced the Bill for the Redistribution of Electoral Divisions, and said that the members would find that there are many changes in it from tlio Bill passed at the former part of the session, but the Government have tried to make it as fair as possible. One clnuso provides for giving votes to per- sons entitled to them under certain conditions. The Government have en- deavoured to keep as far as possible the old parishes. They have restored High Bluff, as several influencing residents there urged very strongly that it should o FFJCE OF THE OAWSON ROUTE TRANSPORTATION COMPANY.

He thought that every one would admit that the Electoral Divisions as laid off by Mr. Archibald was a fair and equitable di- vision, and as the principle of represen- tation by population was the basis on which those divisions were made four years ago he admitted the correctness of that principle and the Sedistribution Bill shortly to be laid on the table was founded upon that principle, and would give fourteeen English members, to ten French. great deal of injus- tice had done, he would not say be done, and instead of making an ex- clusively Canadian constituency back of the Portnge, High Bluff, etc., they had pjaced taem in with the old parishes. .North St Andrews has been extended a little north and St Clements and St Peters have been amalgamated. Wo havu the provisions and definitions of the limits of each Electoral Division as clear as possible.

Something new for ihe City of Winnipeg in the shape of a firsUclass the Sheriff and justices, sitting only one place in the county, and placT- inir it in tbe hands of a board of enumer- ators in each1 Electoral Division, would be found to be more economical and more efficient. lion Mr Torquay said that the Bill introduced by the lion Minister of Pub- lic Works is a very unsatisfactory one. It is an attempt to crush out the old settlers in certain local) ties. The mem- bers of-this House were elected by the men who bore the harden and heat of the day; they were elected by the pio- neers of this western country, and yet we find them in three short years at- tempting to crush out the very men and run by a man who knows his biz. i mention K f u
