Oonant and Kirk Brothers, and from the Boys on the Street, iJTJLY 14, 'T3BDE ATE W GOTERTCMJEN T'S' RE- McLENACHgN MAI.L0CH, .Main street, opposite the CJueen's Hotel, Dealers in 3QRY GOODS, MILLINERY, new Grover'n mieri'tfs Bill for 'redistribution was introduced. It plfoviJes for exactly the same prbpoiv tionate. representation between English French' as the proposed measure- of the old Government fourteen English and. ten 'French. Upon this, point we ''expressed "ourselves before. We do riot consider this representation as precisely Equitable; something like sixteen to eight being a good deal nearer it. Bat the proportion proposed admits the principle of representation by popula- tion, as said aforetime. The only im- portant modification made by the new Government is the restoration of the tHagh Bluff division instead of the crea- tion of the new division of Oaklands. -Upon this point there has been a good deal of argument. But after analyzing the whole matter, we fail to see that it makes much substantial difference which- ever way it goes. The sympathies of the peiople of High Bluff are. very simi- lar to those of the people, of Oaklands and e, member returned by either of them would likely be of a similar poli- tical stripe; and therefore we do not know that the new Government have made any marked improvement by their change neither, on the other hand, :do we, think there is room for all the ado which members and supporters of the late -Government are making over, the r 'alteration. "With the exception of some very slight amendments in the bound- aries .the Bill is otherwise as nearly like the previous Bill as may be. One rather important clause, however, though we do not know-how practicable it is, pro- vides for the registration of. person s-. re- siding' without the limits Of any of the electoral 'divisions, in the nearest or most convenient division, in the discre- tion of the Judge IT cannot be too generally known and understood, that under the provisions of the new law, 'it is illegal to se'll, barter, or give liquor: or intoxicating drink of any. kind to any Indian in the Province of Manitoba or the Morth-West Terri- tories, no 'matter whether he be civiliz- ed or hot.
