Mr. ITnlconer arrived back in ('run
brook Monday evening by auto from
Keru'o to moet Hon. hr. King, Minister of Works, and most of tho details
in connection with the store to bo es-
tabllshed here us well us tho naming
of a vendor have been disposed of.
When first asked by a Horald ro-
liresentatlvo if a liquor store would
he established here or at Fernle, tiie
Commissioner stated definitely, "Pernio will not get a store; the store or
warehouse as we term It, will be located in Cranbrook."
He suid tlie object of his visits to
the various centers in the Interior was
to get the feeling of the people re-
gurdlng the best methods of handling
the liquor business. "I have met
boards of trade and citizens everywhere 1 have been, and while it has
uot been decided by the board that it
is the correct thing to establish stores
in smaller centres, yet I nm personally
of the opinion it we are to eliminate
the bootlegger this is tiie only way
It can be successfully done."
Commissioner Falconer said no
store would be established In Chinatown In Vancouver as had been reported. "The Chinamen using liquors of
any kind, however, will be compelled
to take out a permit and share tbe
tax burdens of the province In this
way. There wll be a big turnover ot

When asked when It was expected
to get the new act in operation Com-
mhlssioner Falconer said it was anticipated permits would be available
on tho lfith inst. and that Nelson's llq-
our store would be in operation by tho
first of June. "Oovernment agents,
the government employment bureaus
nnd provincial police will be the psr-
ml vendors and in some Instances

Mr. H. White, collector of Customs
und Excise for this district, has revived a wire from Ottawa announcing the changes made ln the customs
and excise collections, consequent up-
the bringing lu of tho new budget
at Ottawa tliis week by tho Minister
of Finance, Sir Henry Drayton. The(
wire rends as follows;
Ottawu, May 10, 1921
Collector of Customs and Excise,
Cranbrook, D.O.
You are now instructed that duties
on alcoholic liquors entered for duly

Com. and Deputy Minister.
Thc general effect of these changes,
of course, will be to raise the revenue
available from these sources. Particularly is this true ot the salts tax,
whicli last year contributed some fifty
million dollars to tlie country's revenue, and which has now been given another fitly per cent, increase. The tariff on Imported whiskey takes a Jump
of some three hundred per cent., and
it is interesting to note that much of
the liquor which the B.C. government
must import from Europe for its supply will come under this bead, so that
tho Dominion government intends to
gel. a good slice out of the Moderation
Act under the new customs tariff, as
well as the provincial glvernment.

Referring to a letter iu tlie Canadian Mining Journal of February 18th,
1981, und otlier letters voicing the
unit Ideas in other papers, 1 wish, as
, prospector, to say a few words on
the question.
Mr. W, G. Norric-Luweuthal of tho
Canadian Institute of .Mining and Metallurgy says, with regard to the relationships that siiuuid exist between
tiio public and the mining engineer
and geologist, thut the public would
lUBtlncttvely consult a doctor In caso
>if sickness, a lawyer iu case of legal
difficulty, an architect when they
wanted a home built, In tact a specialist on most matters Which require a
peclaltst's attention. He says that t'-io
mining engineers and geologists wero
sadly neglected hy the piratic and mat
people did not even consider their
existence and certainly did not realise
the Importance of these highly Qualified nitai whenever mining Investments
were considered.
lu fact, he said, the public was
prone to consult old-time prospectors,
or miners, or mining camp cooks, or
iu fact anyone with a glib tongue who
represented himself as possessing sup-

into their care. There were two murder cases, two burglary, one horse
stealing, one attempted murder, and
one case of serious indecency submitted.
A long list ot petit jurymen was
called upon, but there was no immediate business for them and adjournment was announced until the afternoon following a return from the
grand jury. His lordship before tbo
adjournment announced to the Jurymen the need ot being present in the
courl v, Leu the names wero called,
and anyone being absent was liable
to be fined. After the adjournment
the grand Jury returned a true bill
In the ensc of Rex versus Chlnouard
Brothers, on a charge of murder.
The prisoners on being arraigned
nnd charged pleaded not guilty and
their counsel made application for the
trial to bo conducted separately for
each prisoner Instead ot jointly (tc
charged In the Indictment. The application was granted and the trial of]
Hill Chlnouard was commenced.
Tho jury was thin chosen as follows:
Messrs. A. S. Ward. W. B. T. Shepherd, Otto Uroy, A. 0, Edwards, IL
FulljumeH. J. W. Pinch, Bruce Brown,
Joe Callaghau, W. P. Doran, E. L.

charge of the1 horse racing have spent
much time nnd money on getting the
best, and they have certainly succeeded. Purses In tho neighborhood of
$1»00.00 have been hung up
is a guarantee that this item ot the
day's sports will be a winner.
The arrangements for the baseball
tournament have also been completed,
two games, ono in the morning and the
other in the evening, both to be played
at the city grounds, the entrants being Wardner, Fernie and Cranbrook.
Tho football part of the day's attractions is somewhat hazy, through
no fault of the committee in charge of
tills Item. Repeated attempts have
been mado to get definite answers from
Coal Creek nnd Pernie for en afternoon
game at the fair grounds for a one
hundred dollar purse, but so far no decided answer lias been obtained. However, tlu committee has not yet given
up hope and it is expected that these
two teams, will be here. A good game
should be tlie result as matches show
these teams to bo evenly matched and
putting up a good article of football.

ways a mine, but a mine is always a
prospect. Each man bas his place
and particular work and all should
pull together. Some prospectors wish
the mining engineers were in a warmer climate than B.C., but I would not
go so far as that. The tone of these
letters ia unfair to prospectors, though
prospectors have as much right to
just consideration, as to their money
and work, as the public. Prospectors
are as honorable, honest and important as any men in the country. Mining
engineers are forever using the word

they never commit t«is outraee. They

ltrlttsli Nation Winning Through
The disquieting signs we see around
us, the clashing und fomenting, which
.suggest to tho timid the approach of
chaos, are due to the swell aud eddies
made by the new knowledge and the
new thought In lhe two or three decades hefore the war. Demos is awakening, and stretching his mighty limbs,
science Is a young giant thrilled with
life and energy. Old dogmas, old prejudices, old errors, creak and shiver lu

country and the old race out of whicli
all our past and present achievements
have grown. We shall not perish in
an insane tratlcldo, nor split in mad
ruin and combustion. No, we shall
win through.— London Sunday Chronicle.

Liquor Importation
The Dominion government ims refused to sanction legislation whicli
will put an end to the importation of
liquor into this province by others
tlinn tlie provincial goperument. In
other words, unless requested through
a .plebiscite of the people, it is not
going to he a parly to creating a monopoly In restraint of trade. The Federal Parliament legislates nationally-
Its attitude and Its legislation effecting tho liquor question are known,
unci it Ih precocity on the part of any
one province to demand leglalution for
its special benefit und advantage wheu
the sume legislation, if it is not discriminative, must apply all round.
Quebec, where a new 1 quor law Is ln

government for any speciul legislation
lo meet its needs. It is a dangerous
principle which our Provincial Legislature asked tlie Dominion Government
to sanction, for it would Imply federal
endorsement of monopolistic methods,
and the putting into force of legislation to whicli the people of British
Columbia have given no sanction.—

both eyes swollen ami bruised, a out

rlu'cli bone wan broken. Two tcutli
wuro knocked out ami oiln-rs loosened,
ami n puncture was in Hit right hand
sldo of the fori.11end." Ho observed
further a liutehct, uud a cane broken
in two, in lho room. II,. wus of tho
opinion that lhe hatchet hud been une
ot the Instruments to Inflict tho
wounds received by tho victim. Under crosa-cxaminutlon tho doctor admitted that such manner of injuries
could have been caused by otlier
menus such us colliding' with a stove
or n stono wall, but In his opinion
it was hard to conceive that the man
could havo come to such a multiplication of Injuries from such a source.
He had known of the Hindus smashing each oilier up at times, but tlie
lust occasion he know of was as long
ay.o as 1914. He knew Al Singh very
well ard considered him one of the
best type of Hindus that linve come to
these parts.
Adjournment was then made until
10 o'clock Wednesday morning.
Dr. Asseltlne's testimony brought
out thut he Itad examined the Hindu.
Al Singh, on his nrrlvcl at Fernle hospital and attended him there until his
dentil. He held a post mortem examination and found that both the cheek
bones of the victim had been fractured
completely loosening th0 top part of
Lho head. Ho traced the crack in tho
bones right up tho face and past below the ears. He was ot tbe opinion
tiiat the victim had received more thou
one blow aud that the blows had been
received ou both sides of the head.
He thought au axe such as was ln the
Court could have severed the lobe
without breaking the bone, and was
used as a weapon in Inflicting this
wound. Tliere was u cut ou tho left
forearm apparently made with a sharp
Instrument such us a knife uud several small superflclul wounds. Ho
thought an iron pipe or something circular itad been used to cause thc
wounds on the head. Death was due
to hemorrhage ou tiie bruin and shock
from the injuries sustained. He had
told lhe man Hint lie wus failing and
wus not likely to recover hut could
not remember that any response was
made lo this.
Further witnesses are htlng examined tracing tlie doings aud activities
of the accused uround lho time of the
alleged murder but an adjournment
lind beeu made necessary lo bring curtain porsoiiH from Pernio and (lie case
will In all likelihood continue the ro-
ma.inter of tliis week.

tlie Britannia company own the Anyox

that the mine was condemned by his

does not the Stewart company own the

No Royal Uond

Wliy do college men stink in the nostrils of prospectors?   Mainly because
they too frequently assume to   know
the unknown.   A man has a right   to
visions, in fact must have them in his
business, but no man should sell them
ns solid facts.   Tho colleges are doing
good work and theories are of value,
but.Nalurc's treasure house must   be
unlocked by steel and energy and the
prico she names must be paid.   If a
man has been taught the history of
every mineral occurence and chemical
and geological phase tn al! mines up
to date and from that point alms   to
judge new mining fields,  he should
forget it. for Nature's bock is still unread and judging by co-relation is ex-

B.C. Gov't Promises Rebate of
U% on Retail Cost to Genuine Prospectors
Included lu the v^tunaies passed at
the last ssesion of the provincial legislature was the sum of $10,000 to provide assistance for the "bona fide
mineral prospector" in the purchase of
the powder needed for the initial development of mineral claims staked in
the province.
Hon. Wm. Sloan minister of mines,
lias had under consideration regulations to govern the disbursement of
this aid. He hae approved a set of,
rules which, taken us a whole, should
assure the equitable administration of
the fund.
The procedure laid down lu tills con-
nection is very simple. Applicants
huve to comply with u few clearly ex-,
plained condltfous to obtuin a rebate
mi the powder they use In the opening up of their properties "of U5 per j
cent, of the Ugltimute cost of the legl-|
timate cost of such powder."
The rules referred to may be summarized as follows:
That applicants prove to the satisfaction of a mining recorder or a resident engineer that they are "bona
fide mineral prospectors."
That grants wil be made on a basis
of not more than ten cases of powder
to each applicant in one year.
Thai an additional amount may be
allowed to a prospector in one year
"under exceptional circumstances,1
and on the written recommendation of
a resident engineer of the Department
of Mines.
That applicants shall sign declarations, upon forms supplied by the Department of Mines, setting forth the
legal description of the ground on
which powder has been used and the
number of cases of explosives actually
used In prospecting such ground.
That applications shall be signed in
the presence of and witnessed by one
of the following persons, viz: A mining recorder, a deputy mining recorder, a justice of tbe peace, or a resident engineer of the Department of
Upon receipt of such a declaration,
with Invoice of the .powder purchased,
a subsidy will be paid to the extent
of 25 per cent, of the retail cost of
tbe powder.
Special attention Is called to the
terms of tbe last clause.    It means
thai, IT powder is bought Iu centres
whoro it is comparatively cheap, the
rebate or subsidy wit be bused on
such cost. Should it be purchased,
however, ut interior points at a higher
price the percentage will be figured
on the higher coat. This is of more
advantage to the prospectors than a

OTTAWA.— Discussions in the
House of Commons are being conduct
ed on a plane somewhat in keeping
with our new national status, Sine'
the Peace Conference there lias bum
,t danger that a few of uur lauding
public men would talk ll^t first rank
statesmen, but that parliament on thc
whole would act llku a county council
This danger is disappearing. Following the lead of such men as Sir Hubert
Borden and Hou. N. \V. Howell, tho
House of Commons Is speaking it:
mind on external affairs.
The splendid! discussion 0 ntlic ap
poiiitment of an ambassador to Wash'
Ingtou was followed hy another one on
the coming conference Of British
Prime Ministers In London, lu sotno
respects this was of even more far-
reaching Importunee than tho former,
but the debate on tho whole was not
nearly us good, and that for the reus
on that the average participant was
beyond his depth. International politics is a wide field, or as tho common
expression goes, it is a big game. As
yet there ure not more than half
dozen men In parliament who seem to
be sure of their ground on these subjects—Sir Robert Borden, Rowell, Dr,
Michael Clark, Sir George Foster,
Mackenzie King and Lemleux. Mr.
Crerar, having been away during this
debate, one cannot tell what he could
The debateB this session have demonstrated that Canadians know infinitely more about Americans and the
United States than they know of the
peoples or of the countries beyond the
seas. Even some backbenchers talked
well on relationships with the United
States. As for the front benchers,
they were quite at home. Canadian
public men will get quite an Introduction to the outer world through the
League of Nations and conferences In
London; but It begins to look
though iu diplomatic relations, the
country generally would get n great
deal of Its training through contact
with the United States. This must
follow the appointment of an ambassador to Washington; and it will be
quite a while before another is appointed.
In this commercial age, a couutry'a
external political relations will be determined largely by its commercial relations with other countries, lu these
unsettled days lt is also being demonstrated that trade docs not follow the
flag. Never was sentiment between
Canada and the United Kingdom
stronger, but trade between the two Is
declining at a rapid rate. Last year
Johnny Canuck did with Uncle Sara
$3 worth of trade for every dollar he
did with John Hull.
From the practical standpoint, Sir
Robert Borden made the best speech
on the conference. None can doubt
his loyalty to Britain and yet no other
member of the House was more emphatic in his statement that Canada
should not now be committed to new
naval or military expenditures.
It was quite evident that on theso
matters the government bad taken its
cue from Sir Robert. The influence of
Mr. Rowell was also apparent, for he
and Sir Robert are of one mind on
these matters. The Prime Minister Is
not yet at home in this larger field.
Since entering the government In 1!H2
hts nose has been so kept on the
grindstone of domestic problems that
he has not had time to acquaint himself with Uio details of international
polities; besides, these subjects cannot be read up as one would master
an ordinary law case.
Of all mon in parliament Mr. Howell
Is the most venturesome in international politics. He goes much further
afield than Sir Robert, for whereas
tho latter confines himself pretty much
to matters in which Canada is directly
affected, Mr. Rowell ventures with
confidence on the discussion of European diplomacy and the merits of the
Peace Treaty. It Is quite possible that
Sir Robert shares many of Mr. How
ell's opinions on these subjects, but If
he does he keeps them to himself. Ot
course, lt Is not surprising that a man
who at Geneva told European diplomats what he thought of them should
manifest little hesitation in speaking
out ln parliament. Undoubtedly lie
would hold his own In nny deliberative body In the world.
It ls quite evident that the government has not seen eye to eye   with
either the home authorities   or Australia on the work   of tho conference.
Lloyd George's statement as   to the
momentous nature of tho proceedings
and his insistence that the Dominions
assume a share of the burden of the
British navy, together with   the remarks of Premier Hughes of Austral-
la and Premier Massey oi \'ew Zealand, indicate clearly that there Is an
element that would force the making
of important decisions.   Our govern
ment from the first has been disinclined to countenance such   a program,
and as time has gone   It has   more
plainly manifested lis attitude,  Today
It looks on the conference as a mere
informal discussion of matters that
may be taken UP   seriously   a   year
hence.    Moreover, as the   industrial
situation In   this   country   becomes
worse, and revenues decline, tho govornment must of necessity refuse   to
commit Itself to new enterprises.
Of course tlte Prime Minister   did
not desire to havo his hands tied   by
Uio King amendment, which was natural; but on tho otlier hand lioth tht
amendment aud the vole doubtless
served a purpose ln making plain to
tho home government what Canadian
opinion really Is on these matters.
Public opinion on this continent Insists
un knownj, through its lepresents-
tlvos, where governments art going;
[ear at secret diplomacy ls feeding
this sentiment, especlully lu matters
relating io foreign aflairs.
The western provinces will uot get
their natural resources Just yet. lt ia
hoped that they may gel them before
the Millenium, but this Is by no means
certain. Campbell's resolution called
tor the transfer without delay, and hi
supported It with a good speech. Davis, Buchanan and Reid also did well,
but Crerar's waa tlie outstanding effort. It was clear cut und lie arrested
attention in referring to tliQ prairie
provinces us but Crown colonies ot
the Dominion. Very effective too was
IiIb comparison ot P.B.I, wltb but 100,-
000 population controlling Us natural
resources, while Saskatchewan with
over SOU,Olio had no such control. Nova Scotlu with 260 square miles of
coal lauds had full suy over llicin, bul
Alberta with 25,000 had uo say. The
politicians got In tlieir deadly work.
King wanted a vote, nnd the government not being ready to bund over the
resources, and fearing to have Its
Western supporters vote against tlie
motion, recalled thut the Liberal convention had adopted a resolution asking for the transfer on terms fuir to
the other provinces. So this was
tucked on to the Campbell motion,
which queered tho whole thing.
The Prime Minister, however, at-
mltted that on constitutional grounds
the contention of the provinces was
; he alBo said thut the argument
as to the Dominion having purchased
these landa from thc Hudson's Bay Co.
ond thus could do what it liked with
them, hail little weight witli him. He
did, however, hold that tlie other provinces had no claim lo consideration
and urged that there be a getting together, for only through compromise
could a settlement be arrivel at. But
to effect a settlement will not be easy
as long as some politicians ar0 looking
for a football.

In times of Peace?
Dcpitc lhe world-wide activities of the Red
rro s yr.ee lhe close of the war, and ■ the
mcalculable amount of good which it has
a.compjlshed in the intervening period, there
are anil many persons, uninformed, who somewhat wonderlngly ask, "Why the Red Cross in
limes of peace?"
Thc mlssloti of (he Red Cross, as It Is evi*
i -need thro:'Bho*tt the world today, is a twofold
(••mi Postwai work nnd peacetime work.
Briefly summarized, their activities, as applied
tj tlie British Columbia Division, are as follows:
Past r/ar Work
1, To   continue   ami    complete   war   work
& i on^st aoldicra still in hospital.
2. To raintain the existing workithop for dls-
rMcd coidiers, nnd to increase the number of
these workshops.
Peace Time Work
1. To train and maintain Red Cross
public health nurses for service in tlie rural
districts, as well as in the sparsely-settled
pioneer sections of British Columbia.
2. To provide emergency service and
outfits throughout the Province for dispatch to and service at the scene of
accident or disaster.
3. To relieve sickness among tlie needy
everywhere and anywhere in British Columbia.
4. To promote Red Cross principles and
practice amongst the youth of British Columbia—to enlist their sympathies and help,

Inn was that if il woro mado too difficult to obtain beor in snrnl Quantities,
tiie tendency would be for men to take
instead "tho smallest package with tho
biggest kick." He thought then, ought
to be some provision made for beer
drinking by tho glass, and asked Mr,
Falconer If anything of thia nature
was contemplated^
The Commissioner lu reply stated
tiiat tlie special problems presented
by some of the mining towns and otlier
places—mentioning Klmberley, Michel
and Yahk—were to be looked iuto.
Tliere was nothing In Hie act to prevent Hit Commission from establishing
beer stores only in some places, as
distinct from the places wliere hard
liquors would also be obtalnablOi Ho
indicated that it might be necessary
to ask the brewers lo put up some spe
clal packages, say of six quart bottles,
or twelve pints, which the working
man could readily take to his homo.
There was to be no drmking in public
places or on public highways, which
had been made un offence in tlie act.
Mr. Falconer also referred to the
big vested Interests represented in the
liquor business, mentioning the Fernie Brewery, where some $260,000 was
tied up in Investments, and some twenty men given employment. This represented a matter of considerable importance to the community.
, Tho Commissioner also took the opportunity lo deliver a llttlo homily on
alcohol, stating that It was undoubi
m i
(Continued from Pago One)
public and individual expressions of
opinion, and there was to be no special secrecy ln regard to the plans of
the Board, their-cards being all placed
on the table, as it were. In hie opinion, the province stood to gain a great
deal in population antl in general development by the proper working out
of the act.
Digressing somewhat at this point,
Mr. Falconer spoke regarding the proposed Iron and steel industry for tills
province. As past president of the
B.C. Manufacturers' Association, Mr.
Falconer was able to say that the eyes
of a big British Industrial concern
were oh the province, and the possibll-
| ities for the establishment of a plant
; of this description were bright for the
j future. Considering the adjacent de-
| posits of hematite and magnetic iron,
it was likely that "within a hundred
and f.fty miles of Cranbrook" a pig
Iron plant would be established, while
the steel plate rolling mill would likely be at the CoaBt. Negotiations were
under way for some railway construction in this section which would make
available the coking coal supply necessary, to be found nearby, comparatively  speaking.
Reverting to his subject proper, Mr.
Falconer said the liquor control question ought to be looked at as business
men should, from a business point of
view. Ho hoped that Boards at Trade
would take more than a passing Interest in the working out of the act,
and everyone help so that ihey would
soon see the bootlegger exterminated
for ever. By so doing, tho greatest
service would be rendered to everyone.
The chairman called for some individual expressions of opinion, and a
few questions wore asked, and some
declarators of opinion made.
Mr. A. A. MacKinnon, while not
wishing to say very much, as one
of the police commission, stated It was
his intention to do hts utmost toVards
the success of the aet. and he hoped to
see a resolution put to the meeting
on the question of a store here.
Mr.- J. F. Guimont said that he Interpreted tho result of the plebiscite
as a vote for toleration, anil wanted
some information as lo the beer drinking provisions ot the act.   His opin-
r-.lly good for some things. He quoted
tlie American Medical Association as
recently going on record to tlie effect
that alcohol was a cure for diabetes
and also indicated that it had certain
industrial uses, such as in tlle making
of vinegar. He adduced from these
things, that alcohol was good for
something—tliis for the benefit of his
"prohibition friends," who thought,
ho believed, that it was good for nothing.
Mr. R. B. Beattie endorsed what had
been said in regard to beer drinking
privileges, and was willing to go farther, believing that some licensed beer
drinking places should bo established
as in Furope. He instanced the difficulty a travelling man might have in
getting his beverage, and believed the
time would come when the Commission would see it was wise to make
some provision along this lino. Mr.
Beattie brought the meeting to a head
by proposing a resolution that tho Liquor Commission be requested to establish one of the main warehouses
in the city of Cranbrook in sonic proper place. This was seconded hy Mr.
Guimont and unanimously carried
Mr. Falconer, speaking further
tho beer privileges allowed under the
breweries would have their entire out-1
put   taken  over  by   tho  government, j
that Ib to say, the vendor would practically bo in charge of tho brewery, j
bo  f;ir as the disposal of its output:
went.    Rliile the brewers were working ut present under Dominion license
lt would meau that they were nevertheless under the control of the provincial authorities.   Mr. Falconer was
in a position to say that the brewery
here would be taken care of in this
way, adding a word of commendation
as to the quality of their output.
Replying to a further enquiry from
Mr. G. F. Marsh as to the hours under
which the liquor stores would work,
Mr. Falconer said that while the hours
originally thought of were from 9 to
this might bo changed from 10 to
7. according to circumstances. It was
proposed to troat Saturday as any
other day, and the stores would also
be closed on Sundays and holidays.
The stores were to be open only eight
hours a day. It was not proposed to
make whiskey too easy to get, nor
yet tn put uuy regulations into effect
Ihat would tend to induce drinking.
Tlie Commissioner said the provln-1
clal government had put the entire!
responsibility of the working of the
act on tiie shoulders of tiie three commissioners, and It was up to themselves to mako good or get fired.
Visitors' permits were to cost $5,

to be taken to guard against the possiblo abuse of permits by tourists. If
these people want to indulge their appetite to any great extent, they are
apparently to be called upon to contribute pretly heavily to the revenue of
the province iu order to do It.
A vote of thanks was tendered to
Mr. Falconer also said, and would be
Guimont und O. J. Little, and u nan-
Imously carried. The Commissioner
cordially thanked the Board, und said
it was their Intention to keep in touch
with such bodies, to whom, along with
other public officials, full copies of
the uct would be sent. He urged patience In the working out of tho details, but promised that Cranbrook
would be one of the first to get its
store going, as he intended lo order
tho stock from Nelson on his way
Dr. J. H. King, who was also present at the meeting, was called upon
by Mr. Fink for a few remarks, the
latter throwing a little bouquet at
the minister for tho stute of the hlgh-
I ways in this section, which he said
! was very creditable.

he believed that the bill as It now
stood represented fairly the attitude

however, and progress would have to

was glad to see the Commissioners

liquor, but to control it.
Mr. Falconer spent Wednesday mor- SAY

upon. The naming of the vendor has
also been done, and the formal ratification of the appointment will be
