CIDER AND BEER PARLORS
IN COMMON with other leading
newspapers of the Province, we are in
favor of allowing Commissioner Hugh
Davidson a free hand in controlling operations of the recently established beer parlors, at least until there are good reasons
for objecting. Still, some of his rulings
are hard for the man of only average intelligence to understand. For instance,
where is the harm in allowing the sale of
soft drinks such as soda and lemonade, or
pure cider, the product of our orchards,
or chewing gum, or smokes?
And why only one entrance? We have
been expecting Fire Marshal Thomas to
object to this ruling. The law is specific
that in all other public places where
crowds gather there must be ample provision for occupants to escape in case of
fire.
Concerning cider, J. Butter field, special writer on the Vancouver Daily Province, opines as follows:
In some respects it is unfortunate that
the existing legislation will not permit the
sale of good cider being added to that of
thin beer in the beer salesrooms of the province���because cider is a thoroughly authentic drink.
In discussing the matter, Commissioner Davidson said: "Cider is hard to
handle. It increases rapidly in alcoholic
percentage, ln fact it is dangerous stuff;
it is liable to go off." There is no doubt
about that, it would go off quicker than
the apple growers could make it.
There are many kinds of cider. I remember in my rash and ill-considered youth
the shadow of Dunkery Beacon and found
in the corner of a little tunnel-shaped valley close by an ivy-covered church that had
been sleeping in the Devonshire sunshine
for seven hundred years, a stone farm
house surrounded by a high wall.
"I wonder," said Parson John, "if the
good lady will give us some milk."
"There is only one way," I said, "of
finding out."
Upon adopting this method it appeared that there was no milk, but the motherly old woman insisted upon our sampling her cider. So we sat down and she
came in with a quart jug ef it and two
mugs.
So we sat there in the cool parlor and
filled our souls with this ambrosial fluid
as we continued to talk deeply of the high
mysteries of life, of the functions of the
church, upon which we never agreed, of
eternity, of love (which you can only discuss properly when you know nothing
about it), of the probable winner of the
Cambridgeshire and of other great matters
controlling the lives of the race.
Now the cider of the Devonshire peasantry
while it has the bouquet and the aroma of Olympus
itself, is usually the most harmless stuff. But as
we drank this our talk waxed higher, our souls
were enlarged and we indulged in flights of eloquence we have/riever since attained, and presently the jug was drained, the sun still up, and
many matters undiscussed. So another was
bought with an exchange of compliments upon
its merits. >
When this was gone I thought of the long
walk in the cool of the evening to our quarters at
Allerford and rose to go. My faculties were up-
touched and my brain clear, but the moment I got
up my knees refused their office and I sank to the
floor.
"My dear rdlow." the parson began, as he
rose to help me up, but he got no further for the
same accident occurred to him���and there we sat
laughing at each other till the eld lady came to
share the merriment.
"Will you tell us, madam," I said, "what
you put in your cider to produce these effects?"
"Well," she said, "our back wall looks over the
parsonage and there is a very old vine on the
other side. But most of the grapes come on this
side and we make our cider out of them."
So when we returned to the* great city we
carried a barrel of it home with us.

and forty thousand dollars in the stocks of Portland Canal companies attempting to raise development finances during the past year. Employes of
the Porter Idaho gladly accepted units in ihat
company in lieu of a portion of their wages and
now realize that they made bigger wages than the A. F. of L.
ever dreamed of.
Hard rock miners are not made

working in these mines have seen
quartz in the famous cimps of
the world. They know a mine

the prospects of Portland Canal.
No better guarantee of the district could be asked. With all
due respect to the mining engineers, we would accept the unanimous verdict of these miners in
preference to the opinions of the

SNAPPY BASEBALL
GAME LAST SUNDAY
What is described by the fans
as one of the best baseball games
ever witnessed in this section,
took place on the Hyder grounds
last Sunday between the Stewart and Hyder teams, the latter
winning by a score of 3���2. M.
J. St. Clair pitched for Hyder and
Wes. Stickney for Stewart, and
both showed class, as the score
indicates. In the interests of
law and order the first umpire
was retired and another substituted, but too late in the game
to compensate for errors of
judgement that were costly to
the Stewart players, and incidentally to their backers.
