cStmpaign ' Calculations. This is the season for campaign cal culations. 'We have now entered upon a year which must within a few months yield a general election, and politicians and others are san guine what will happen in connec tion with every seat. Mr. Reid and his all-powerful party are convinced that the returns will be such that he and they will survive the elec toral test high and dry above the deluged Oppositionists ; and Mr. Lyne and those led by him .are equally confident that the Ministe rialists will be swamped by a big wave, and that the Lyne-men will be cast comfortably on the Treasury _ shores. It is always interesting to listen to the optimists ; but there are pessimists among all parties who scent disaster for their cause ahead, and have an unpleasant facility for forecasting defeat. For the sake of the country, let us hope that the campaign will keep all the good men in their places and substitute possible statesmen for quite a mul titude who missed their vocation...
