i It is evident that tho constitutional qucs-
tlons luvolted lit Tuesday's oloctlon were
; lrxt sight of, nnd that tho toters simply
tlr-cineil Ihciusulves called upon to suy
whether in their opinion tho ox-Minlstor?

( i-luslvnly ocoupled tho publlo mind is shown
' as dcnily by tlm return of two of thonc-
ciiboil Ministers as by tho defeat of the
ji-Ht. To provn thW tvo need only recall tho
t o)lulous oiprnxsod by tho Commission of
' Inquliv. It will bo lomembcrod that tho
j , three Judgis composing tho Commission to

j ot tho doctors Is curiously coincident,
f I discriminated between Mr, Mrnoir.it him-
I eolfnndMr. Sheuyn, his Provincial Tiens
4 J uror, on tho one hand, and some of thnli
j oollongucs on tho other. Tho furthest tho
- majority roport ventured to go in fixing
'' complicity upon Meiiciek, was to say that
i ho received eomo of the stolon money while
' j admitting the absence of any proof that ho
v 1 Luew 11 was stolon. As to Mr. 8iir.iiv', it
't 1 M not )?retondcd that tho ellghtcutoM-
Br&il(&.y -tML.mrtfifoi,Ut,
conco of complicity had boon discovered.
It Ih procleoly tlioso two Ministers whom
tho voters absolve of guilt so far at biicli
a verdict Is Implied In tholr reelection. On
thn other hand, uccordlng totho majority
roport, HoniDoux, Mkrcirh's Attorney

Every dno of tho Ministers thus distinctly
Incriminated by tho majority report lias
been defeated. Tho signlllcnnco, therefore,
of tho Quobco cloctlon Is that tho totors
will not permit nion against whom thcro Is
pioof of cormptton In ofllco to lopresent
tho people. Tho determination docs them
honor, and it is to bo hoped that thoy may
adhero to it in tho future. Tho only thing
to bo regretted is that tho totors did not
form such a wholesome resolution earlier,
foi much tho groitor part of tho provincial
debt was accumulated by Consertntltos,
and ovldcnce has been lopontcdly picsonted

Tho reported discovery of smftll-pox
among immigrants arriving at this port has
led tho Statu Dopnrtmont to send orders to tho
American Consuls nt Liverpool and Hamburg
to provido for tho mcdloal Inspection of all

from theso ports. This action of tho Oovern
mint Is proper and dleoreot. It Is of tho
utmost Importnnco that ovorv precnntlon be
taken to prevent tho Introduction of infoctious

It 1b ovldcnt from rocont occurrences lu
tho Wostorn btatos that tho Prohibition party
will not coOperato with tho Alllanco party In
the Procidentia! election of this roar. Tho
two parties cannot unito upon n platform,
nndtheroforo could not unlto upon a candi
date. Tho Alliance party will notnecept tho
Prohibition principle wlilch tho Prohlbltlon
lxts are bound to maintain, nnd tho Prohibi
tion party desiron to chanco tho principles
upon which the Alllanco Is toundod. Tho rep
resentatives of tho two parties hnvo met to
Kcthorlnn number ot local conventions, but
in no caso have their been able to dis
cover any way of cooperation or acree upon
anything that is ot fuiidamonUt Importnnco
to elthor party. Thoy had tho same kind of
oxporlcnco nt tho fat. Louis oonferonco of last
month. Knelt party desires tho backing of tho
othor. while both parties aro hostile to ono
It is evident, thorofore. Hint each of the two
bombllatory parties must stand upon its own
platform, nominate Its own Prosldontlal can
didate, and conduct Its own uproarious campaign.
Wo trust that Prof. Samuki, A. Kino of

In his air ship without talking too much about

In nt least ono respect, it is tl.o right kind
of a iflllclous rovlval that is now going on In
tho wicked Canadian city ofliollngbroko. Tho
penitent sinners thcro cry for Heaven's mercy:
that is a common feature ot revivals. Tho
converts forclvo tholr enemies: that sort of
thing Is frequently done, wo trust, oven by Ir
religious people. But now comes tho extra
ordinary news. V10 find tt in a Canadian
purer, which, whllo describing tho Holing
broko revivnl. declares that "some of tho con
verts have refunded money whioh thoy had
obtained dishonestly!" Think of thntl Think
of it. yo Christians of nil creeds. Think of It,
halvationist revivalists. Think ot It, Moodt
amt Lankly!
Hore. now. is a revival that Is worth some
thing, and hero aro converts who bring forth
fruits meet for repentance, oven tho fruits of
tlm treo of righteousness.
In reading tho reports ot tho cret religious
revival in Cincinnati, wo hnvo not observed
that it is illustrated byan incidents of tho
DolingbroLe kind. Yet wo would not glvo two
cents for any revival In wliloh tho conv orts who
hold money that they bsve got dishonestly
fall to do us tho pcnlteuc sinners ot Boling
broko have done.
And this is a Earing to which tho people ot
all creeds will subscribe without scruple.

told tho Ladies' Christian Union a great many
Interesting things about her work among tho

put It into her heart a few y ears ago to medi

to which policemen aro subjected, and upon
the fact that no especial Christian endeavor
wns directed toward sustaining thom In those
trials and temptations.
tiho was so movod that sho bestirred herself
among the police and organized a Christian

Then she cot up n renlilcncoat Brighton. nlty

who was getting over sickness or wounds re

wns to sot on foot a similar movement, und

It is probable that thu Ladles' Christian
