Some of these clays tlio question will arise and be. discussel iu earnest how boat to mako tile huge tracts of lands available for State uses which aro now tying, about, the country untitled and unoccupied. ''The time when this subject will crop up will bo wbon the finances of "tho colony are .at low watermark, wheu some "one complains of absenteeism, and the injiibtico of exeinptiug from taxation land lying dormaut which is protoctod, however, from encroachment arid trespass by tho law. The case put in a plain way before tho working classes would provoke a violent discussion and a voci ferous demand for a radical change. Here, for instance, is Mr. Slocombe who, for his services in the oarly days of colonisation, is paid a handsome salary year after year, and to still further reward his eminent and undistinguished services to the cause of tho Governor for tho time being, a grant of 50 or 100 thousand acres of land is forced upon him.

TBI • BOWRAL FREE PRESS, and Mittaoono, Boiiiuwan-o, and Kanoai.ook Advocate. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1883. No man in his senses would ever expect to find in Sir Alfred Stephen a friend to popu lar and constitutional freedom. Not that Sir Alfred is satisfied with the huge sums he has already drawn from the Treasury chest, or the most liberal pension he is now receiving, or that the Civil Service received nearly the whole of his progeny till the name of Stephen became " oderous" in the land; but because he fears the ancient land marks of the law are about to be disturbed by common sense and popular enlighten ment. Sir Alfred must surely know that the days of arrogance, tyranny, and cruelty have long since passed away, how muchsoever he may lament it; and that the people with, better knowledge and greater power for investigating principles, are determined to be no longer hoodwinkod by ermined des pots or snivelling discontents. As a states man Sir Alfred was never remarkable for either ...
