Jack cer. tainly was a sort of telation, but he was equally as stranL e to her as Mr. WVorthing ton. Well it did not much matter: she did not mean to stay long, and would spend most of the remaining time in her own room where she had ordered a fire to be kept alight all day long. She was very tired, indeed her limbs quite ached, and she did not want to see any of the others down. stairs.

THE ELECTIONS TO THE EDITOR. Sta,-In reply to Mr. Jas. Pike's charge against Mr. Gale, Returning Officer, that " he (Mr. Gale) refused to supply him as Secretary to Dr. Blackall's Committee with the names of the Deputy Returning Officers, and Poll Clerks at the various Polling Booths, and that it is safe to assume that the Reform Party have all the information they require."

Again, as to Mr Pike's state ments those employed by him (Mr. Gale) in the office are all reformers." This Mr. Pike mnust know full well, is another m;srepresen tation as both in the office here and also in outside booths people were employed both as Deputy Returning Officars and Poll Clerks, who are well known not to be on the Reform side EDWARD F.
