TJffiE STEW GOVERNMENT'S RE GOODS, ETC. MALLOCH, Main street, opposite the Queen's Hotel, Dealers in DRY GOODS, MILLINERY, FA Yesterday the new G-'overnment's Bill for redistribution was introduced. It, provides for exactly the same propor- tionate representation between English and French as the proposed measure of the old English flnd ten French. Upon this point we expressed ourselves before. We do not consider this representation as precisely equitable, something like sixteen to eight being a good deal nearer it. But the proportion proposed admits tho principle of representation by popula- tion, as said aforetime. Tho only im- portant modification made by the new Government is the restoration of the vlligh Bluff division instead of tho crea- tion of the new division of Oaklands. Upon this point there has been a good deal of argument. But after analyzing I tho whole matter, wo fail to see that it makes much substantial difference which- ever way it goes. Tho sympathies of the people of High Bluff are very simi- lar to those of the people of Oaklands and s. member returned by either of them would likely bo of a similar poli- tical stripe; and therefore we do not know that tho now Government have made any marked improvement by their change neither, on tho other hand, do think there is room for all the ado which members and supporters of the late Government are making over tho alteration. With the exception of some very slight amendments in tho bound- aries the Bill is otherwise as nearly like the previous Bill as may bo. One rather important clause, however, though we do not know-how practicable it is, pro vidas for the registration of persons re- siding without the limits of any of th o electoral divisions, in the nearest or most convenient division, in the discre- tion of tho Judge.

Corner of Main and Postomvc streets, Winnipeg, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL Dealer in V I SB O n S, WINES AND LIQUOHS, IT cannot be too generally known and understood, that under tho provisions of the new law, it is illegal to se'l, barter, or give liquor or intoxicating drink of any kind to any Indian in. the Province of Manitoba or tho Morth-Wost Terri- tories, no matter whether he bo civiliz- ed or not. IT is stated that the Lieut.-Governor will be one of the Commissioners to ne- gotiate tho Qu'Appolle Treaty. His Honor had groat success with the Indi- ans at the North-West Angle last year, and we have no doubt that his presence at Qu'Appello would bo one of the sur- est guarantees of a satisfactory treaty being made with tho Plain Crees.
