Current Events and Opinions.
In Great Britain nn earnest effort
is being made to enforce the Wild
Birds' Protection Act, whereby it is
rendered illegal for any person to
shoot, or attempt to shoot, any
wild bird, or to use any lime, trap,
net, or any other instrument, for
the purpose of taking nny wild bird
between the lst day of March and
the lst day of August in any year.
The necessity for the step arises
from the immense destruction of
wild birds which of late years has
taken place, ee a result of female
fashion. So great was the demand
for song birds, to be used as decorations -for head gear, muffs and other
articles of female attire that the
hunt for them was kept up with
vigor throughout tlie entire year.
The object of the act is to prevent
the disturbance of the birds during
breeding season,—Hamilton Times.
There is surely something wrong
somewhere in our postoffice being
flooded with the circulars and other
bulky documents of the most impudent and barefaced foreign lotteries.
The circulation of such documents
is as demoralizing as that of strictly
indecent publications could be, and
surely means might be taken to stop
them in transitu. The very unnecessary additional burden they put
upon the mail carriers is the least
perhaps of the evils which they
cause, but even this is not small.
Whether such papers come from
Geneva or Hamburg, they ure equal
ly frauds, und Ctinuditius ought to
be too shrewd to be cheated in any
such fashion. Unfortunately, it is
to be feared that too many of them
ara not, but in thoir short-flighted
greed of gain, nre in danger of sending their money to swell tho ill-gotten gains of swindlers and rogues,

In the few words reported of
Mr. Blake's speech at the private
banquet tendered him on Saturday
week, we have un admirable sketch
of the office filled by the Liberal
party just now. Although out of
power for the past six years, they
have, as he says, no cause to be
ashamed of thc efforts they have
made, nor to be discouraged at lack
of apparent result, in endeavoring so persistently to prevent ex
travagance in the public expenditure, and to insist on a sound policy
in the Northwest, they havo brought
thete things fur nearer accomplishment than is apparent on the surface! how much nearer may be seen
clearly at the next general election.
To assert the predominance of the
true federal principle of local liberties is anothor matter in which tho
Liberal party has rendered vast service, not only to this province, but
elsewhere, in the solution of a problem which is pressing very hard on
the resources of statesmenship. If
the centralised, yet highly democratic, government of the British
Isles can be remodelled as Mr.
Blake hopes, so as to give full freedom of local government, to the
several distinct peoples, and thereby afford in the very best manner
a training for the political education of tliese peoples up to self-
government in its broadest sense,
why then the Irish difficulty will be
solved; and to this solution, (he
Liberal party of Canada, by their
fight for decentralisation within the
federal union, will have contributed
a share that they may legitimately
feel proud nf. That tlie senate
needs remodelling, to bring it iiito
accord with the spirit of representative institutions, is evident enough
to the observer of its legislative
methods and the results produced;
but a graver piece of work, and one
that most needs instant attention,
is the restoration of the house of
commons to independence, purity
and respectability. Tlio public have
recently seen in that body examples
of political turpitude of so gross a
character that their guilt ought to
cause their immediate expulsion
from parliament, and be a bar to
their re-entry into parliament for all
future time. Yet the tin of parly
has ensured tlieir escape, at least
from present punishment; und there
is too much reason to believe that
they are in fact but the overflow of
a sea of corruption that curries secretly many another member engaged busily in making his official
position subservient to private gain.
It seems hard, us Mr. llhikii says,
to reach tho honest heart of lhe
people; but the duty of the Liberals
is to sound the true note; and
though no immediate effect may lie
perceived, they, knowing ihis is the
only way open, must persevere, for
it is the sole means of bringing tho
country to a senso of its danger;
and if the Liberal party now neglect it, tho cause is lost.—7Vj« Week
{Independent).

Stage SobMnfc.
During the past fourteen years 106
men have been engaged in the busineu
of stage robbing on Wells, Fargo &
Co.'s Pacific Coast Stage lines. Thai
it is a business pursued with great diligence and skill is shown by the "Robber's Record," kept bythe company
for the use of its own detectives.
It has in the last fourteen years cost
Wells, Fargo & Oo. 8927,727.65, or an
average of §66,266 per year. The robbers are charged with $415,312,55; rewards for arrests, etc. $73,451; attorneys, 822,367; expenses incurred in
arresting and convicting robbers, 890,.
070; guards and special officers, $320,*
517.
In this ib not included the great
amount stolen from the United States
mails in the same robberies and the
still greater total ofi.cash.an4 valuables'
taken from the coach paisongers. But
taking the sum the robbers have secured from the Wells, Fargo boxes
alone, 8415,312, it is seen that the 105
men who have engaged in the business
havu averaged $8,835, or 8600 per
year each.
What tho money and jewelry hat**,
netted the road agenU it is, of course,
impossible to even estimate.— S. F.
Chronicle.
The D. i. Navy.
The recent naval drill at Pensacola
and Key West was an interesting and
valuable exhibition, because it illustrated the utter decay and inefficiency
whioh has overtaken that arm of our
national defense. Secretary Whit
nay's order directing the exercises
recognized the antiquity of our ships
and guns, but the display -showed
weakness in every respect except in the
personnel, The officers and men made
creditable use of their discreditable
facilities. The squadron consisted of
six ships, besides a despatch boat.
As soon as the drill began the boilers
of the PowbatUu, tin ancient paddle
steamer, were found' to be Unsafe and
ilitf' was • ruled' out. : Th'ii squadron
then went through the motions of
attack and defense, and exercised in
steam tactics without a single modern
vessel of respectable speed. In the
target tiring with shell and shrapnel,
only two out of teu shrapnels exploded,
and two., shells burst at the muzsle of
the gun. Only about half of the shots
were hits, and the result was ascribed
to defective powder, which was from
seven to seventeen years old. Something uf the" same kind occuired in the
harbor of San Francisco at the bombardment of the dummy monitor off
Alcatraz, during the centennial celebration. ■: It was subjected for. hours
to a fire from forte and fleet and came
out unscathed. That was also attributed to had powder. The target practice of the Atlantic squadron at Pen-
aacola was conducted with guns whioh
any second-rate European power would
be ashamed of. . Thore wai a torpedo
drill without asiugle solf-moving torpedo, and a night attack-hy a torpedo
flotilla, which did not comprise one
torpedo boat proper, but was composed of noisy, slow, steam launches,
which could ba heard coming at least a
mile off, and a number of rowboati
fitted with s\mt torpedoes. The de*
fense wus not much better, as the ship
attacked had no eloctric search-light
for sweeping, the sea to discover the
approach of its assailants, and in default thereof rigged -signal-lights at the
yard-arms and threw up bombs, which
looked pretty, but were not vory effective. When the naval brigade was
drilled in making a lauding, three of
the tive nupuruimu.it-.ttl steam launches
were disabled, Spoiling tlio effect of the
sham attack. This exhibition was
well timed, Congress is considering
naval appropriations nud It. is to be
hoped thnt the display of antiquities
under tho names of ships, guns, torpe*
dot-H, etc., will arouse a feeling in favor
uf replacing them with something less
interesting t'i nrehtologists, but more
adapted to modern practical purposes.
T S. P, Bulletin.
Four Lbcubd Buimi.Aii.--A money-
hiving rat has recently created con*
niderablo consternation in n Welsh
family. A gentleman, on leaving his
office in Bangor, Kicked up in a cupboard fur temporary safety a canvas
bag containing £40. Next morning
niton he went to fotoh tho monoy to
put in the bank the cupboard was as
bare as that of Mother Hubbard. The
polico wore called in and set to watch
oertain pursuits, but the meanwhile
some one noticed a small hole iu the
cupboard, suggesting a four-legged
thief. So small parcels of nice' were
lookod up in the cupboard" for two
nights. These also disappearing, aome
of the woodwork was taken up, and
the remnants ot the meal showed the
way to a rat* ht ilo four feet away,where
the remains of a canvas bag and the
missing sovereigns were duly discovered.
The prohibition amendment was defeated in the New York assembly, 53
voting in favor uf it, 03 against it, and
12 being absent or dodging the issue.
All those who voted for tho amendment were Republicans;

A flew Factor.
It is well known that the tern
perunco vote nt the last presidential
election in the United States wns
the cause of   Blaine's defeat.   A
majority of temperance men in the
United States are Republicans, but
the refusal of thut party to satisfy
the temperunce people produced so
much dissatisfaction that they bolted and caused  the defeat of their
party.    The   temperance    vote
New York waa 1017 in 1880, but
in 188*1 it had grown to 25,010,
and to 30,867 in 1885.    It is quite
possible the vote this year wilt be
so large as to put into the hands of
the temperance people the power tn
elect or defeat any political ticket
as they may think best.   They will
occupy a position much similar to
tho one occupied by the Parnell
ites in the British house of coin
mons.   Compared with the whole
country, the Parnellites and their
immediate supporters arc in a hopeless minority; but they were nble
to defeat Gladstone's late government ; they defeated the Conservative government that succeeded it;
and they can defeat the present government  whenever they wish,    ft
would not be surprising to find thc
temperance party holding n similar
power in United   States politics.
The   Republican   party  was very
angry because of the secession of
the temperance people, and during
the past few months tlie party managers in New York undertook to
bring back the seceders by promising in their state platform to submit a prohibition amendment.   The
promise has not been kept, however,
and the kickers are determined to
show the Republicans of New York
that they cannot be deceived with
impunity.   Speaking of the state of
Oregon, the   Portland   Oregonian
says the same thing is going on
there,   The temperance sentiment
in Oregon and  Washington Territory is very strong.   The prohibitionists are active and aggressive,
and have in many instances nominated complete local, tickets, and
ar^^^ermi^c^ .,■•#. put ^ejtemper*
ance question' before aU others at
the polls.   The political jJftrty managers are becoming alarmed at the
growing power of this new factor.
They see that it will defeat the Republicans again if not pneititfd. But
ii'Wff'-'be pttCffied only^by'legislation in the direction of temperance
reform, and to this the Republican
party is afraid to pledge itself.  The
time will come, however, when the
Republican party will see in temperance legislation its only hope of
success, and then, with the help of
the large temperance vote, it will
carry everything before it throughout the country.   This is the direction in which present events are
pointing, and we are not without
hope that in British Oolumbia the
friends of temperance reform will
find themselves before long powerful enough   to   obtain reasonable
legislation in the direction indicated
by their agitation.
€. P. R. Affairs.
The affairs of the Canadian Pacific Railway syndicate and those
of British   Oolumbia are so intimately connected that anything relating to the company's plans aud
operations is read with much inter-
. est in this province,   it hns been
the policy of the company to obtain
and hold control of everything it
can get that may yield profit    The
carrying trade of nearly nit Canada
is   gradually   coming   under   its
manipulation, and it does not dis
dain to accept bonuses of money or
land, to dabble in town sites, erect
hotels and wharves, build nnd run
steamers, or undertake anything in
the region of commerce or speculation where the color of money is to
be  seen.     This   vast corporation
must necessarily exercise a large influence in shaping the future des
tiny of our province.     At the annual meeting of the shareholder-] of
the company, recently held in Montreal, some very interesting facts
wen brought out.     The length of
ttie main line, from  Montreal to
Vancouver, is 2,906 miles; and the
lenirth of all the lines owned and
. _ r_ i i _. __. _„.,..*„ a net   >vu-
I by the company is 4,;J37. The
company's total • earnings in 1884
were 15,750,521, and for last year
they were $8,698,493, and the net
profit amounted to.three and a quarter millions. After referring to the
peculiar advantages of the company
over any other road, the report goes
on to say: "To meet the requirements of the Northwest grain trade
elevators have heen "erected at
Prinoe.Arthur and,Fort William
of a capacity of 1,700,000 bushels;
one at Montreal of 800,000 bushels,
and another at Owen Sound of 350,
000 bushels. The erection of othen at different points Is in content-
C1 ' *od. Ample arrangements have
made for rolling stock to meet
aay emergency that may arise. The
development of coal-milling in tho
Canadian   Northwest has   already
hud a most beneficial cllcct on the
operating expenses of. the company,
and the transportation of coal has
ht-como   an important item in its
traflic.     The general use of local
coals for railway and domestic purposes hns put at rest all questions
as to their quality, aud the discovery
of coal beds in all directions, in, and
for hundreds of miles east of thc
mountains indicates the existence
there of one of the most extensive
coal areas in the world.   The groat
coal deposits at tlie Pacific terminus,
which already supply nearly all of
the North American Paoifio coast,
and most of the steamships crossing
tho Nortii Pacific Ocean, have been
mentioned in former reports.   The
completion   of  the  St.   Lawrence
bridge  will enablo the company to
secure independent connections with
tho maritime provinces, the New
England  States and  the  Atlantic
seaboard, for want of which connections  the interests of the company have suffered severely in the
past.    The American lines advancing towards a connection with tlie
Algoma   branch of   the Canadian
Pacific at Sault Ste. Mario, from
St.  Paul and  Minneapolis on the
one hand and from Duluth on the
other, will almost certainly be completed before the end-yf the next
year.   These connections will afford
to   the   states   of   Minnesota  and
Dakota and a large part of Wisconsin, the shortest and cheapest possible route to the tide waters of the
Atlantic, and to New York and thc
New England  states, and bring to
the Canadian Pacific a great volume
of valuable traffic.    In reference to
the Pacific const terminus the report states that the terminus of the
railway  will be at the entrance to
Burrnrd Inlet, embracing both Coal
Harbor and English Bay, where the
harbor advantages are all that could
be desired, and where the adjacent
lands afford an excellent site for a
city.     In consideration of the extension.of the main line of the mil-
way to the new terminus, the company has received a grant from the
government of British Coiumbin of
about   nine square miles of land,
upon which a city has been laid out
and named Vancouver.    The docks
and other terminal works of  the
company at this poiut will be extensive and of the best description;
but the proceeds of the sale of its
city property will much more than
cover all expenditures in this direction, including the cost of tho extension  of the main line aud tlie
building of the New Westminster
branch.   The negotiations with the
Imperial government, of which the
shareholders are already aware, for
the establishment of  a  first-class
line of steamships between the Pacific terminus of the railway and
Japan and China are still pending.
Thc many advantages to Imperial
interests, and the sense of security
that would be created by a thoroughly efficient and purely British
alternate route to the east, inspire
the directors with the belief that
their  proposals   must soon be accepted by her majesty's government.
The questiou of connections with
the Australasian colonies is nlso receiving the attention of the directors, and they are also looking toward such steamship service on the
Atlantic as will fully meet the requirements of the company.    Arrangements have been made with
the Pacific Coast Steamship Company for a first-class steamship connection between the Pacific terminus of the railway and San Francisco, immediately upon theopening
of the through line for traflic; and
other important water connections
on the  Pacific coast will be established shortly, from all of which a
considerable amount of paying traffic will be obtained.    The directors
are confident that the opening of
the line to the Pacific will result in
a large and immediate development
of through traflic, which, in a very
short time, will exceed any estimate
that has yet been made.    The company's telegraph lines have as yet
only been opened for commercial
service between Lako Superior and
the Rocky Mountains, and on the
branch lines of railway in the Northwest; hut tho net profit from their
operations in that district in 1885
was $60,030, as againBt $36,27:1 for
the previous year.   The company's
wires both east and west are being
rapidly extended, and it is expected
that its telegraph systom will soon
be in full operation.    The directors
place a very high money value upon
the telegraphic property nnd privi
leges of the compnny, which they
intend to fully protect npd develop.
In concluding their report the directors reviewed their expression!! of
entire confidence in the success of
the enterprise.    With its main lino
stretching from the Atlantic seaboard to the shores of the Pacific
with its extensive system of brnncli
und connecting lines, enabling it to
reach tho chief centres of trndo in
Canada and the Northern United
States, with  its own steamships nn
tho great lakes, and all this under
one management; with tho further
great advantage of having to provide  for a total capitnl chargo, including bonds, leases I and ordinary
shares, of   less  than §.10,000 pi
mile, or ubout one-fifth of that  of
its principal Canadian compntit
and far below that of tiny of
American   competitors;    with   all
these advantages and its superior
facilities for attracting business
conducting   it   economically   and
efficiently, and with no telegraph,
sleeping car or elevator companies,
or uny other privnto interests what
ever to sap its revenues, tho Canadian Pacific Hallway can hardly f-iil
to meot the expectations of its pt-i
jectors, and to bo a source of larg
and certain profit to its shareholders;
and  finally, with the establishment
of steamship, connections of the best
class, both on the Atlantic and the
Pacific, it must soon become a powerful   factor   in   the world's commerce."

shown hy the fact that in one part of

known as the Bluff, is at or near (lie
identical spot where Margraves found
the lirst gold, the discovery df which
has been the principal cause of Australia's rapid advancement. Here a Bolid
mass uf quartz, several yards in thickness and fully 100 feet high, meets the
eye, The quartz has a decidedly auriferous appearance, containing galena.
iron, arsenical pyrites, and probably a
good perceutnge of silver. There iB a
very excellent site for quartz crushing

quartz can bo obtained in almost um

signs of the prevalence of *rold deposits,

Timkly CAtTiON.—Tho baby city of
Vancouver, B. C, seems to be growing vory fast. It ia claimed that there
aro two thousand permanent residents
there already and hundreds are arriving uvery week. Eastern Canadians
nre intorested in the growth of the Pacific terminal city, for if it becomes
permanently great and prosperous it
will be the result of a healthy trade
between the east and the west. It is
to be hoped, however, that the prospects of tho place will not he blighted
by a premature boom. Vancouver
will not rival San Erancisco for many
years to come and it will bo a mistake
to fix the price of lots too high. High
rents and high prices do not help the
growth of a town. Vancouver will
probably bo a great city somo time,
but it is well to be cautious. The collapse of the Winnipeg boom ought to
be a warning to Canadians. Still it is
better to be too hopeful than too pessimistic.- Moid re<d Star.   -
Japanese Thaok.—From the Montreal Wit imt of tho llth inst, it is
learned that the announcement is
mnde that tho Fred Billings, sailing-
ship, has beeu 'placed on the berth at
Yokohama, in Japan, to sail from there
direct to Vancouver, British Columbia,
on the 10th of June next. Her cargo
will consist of teas and other Japanese
goods, which will, come to Eastern
Canada ovor the Canadian Paoifio railway. Thu ratea ot through freight announced are very moderate. This is
thu beginning of direot Canadian trade
on the Pacific. It is somewhat of a
coincidence that it was fifty-three years
ago to-day, namely, the llth of May,
1833, that tho Geuoa, the tint ocean
ateamahip from Great Britain to Canada arrived in tho port of Montreal,
Tho pioneer of the large Canadian
ocean Hoot to-day was welcomed in
thia port with great rejoicing, tho
school children being givun a holiday

The Queen's Birthday.
There was no publio celebration of
the day iu this city. Places of business wore closed, and flags, were displayed in profusion, and a large number of citizens enjoyed themselves at
pic-nics, boating, driving, and on the
various oxcursioua to Nanaimo, Langley and Chilliwhack.   The
NANAIMO  EXCURSION
oii the str. Dunsmuir was fairly patronized, and a very pleasant affair. The
steamer had on board a number of
people from Vancouver, and arrived at
the Black Diamond City in good time.
The programme of entertainment waa
not as interesting as it might have
been. There was not wind enough for
the yacht race, the sports were of the
kind which everybody has aeen acl
nauseam, and the horse races wore nut
to take place until the aecond day!
Tliis way a very decided mistake.
Scarcely anybody cared to remain in
Nanaimo for a week to aeo a horse
race, and that part of the programme
would be viewed solely by the resident
population. Perhaps this ia what the
committee intended, so that the prize
money would nut go out of local hands.
AT LAXOI-KY
there waa a largu gathering, and .the
programmo of amusements was surprisingly good for it amall rural settlement. Sovoral persons went up from
this city, on the str. Gladys and by the
wagon road. There wero horse races,

and the other games und sports whioh
usually fill up n holiday programme.
The baso ball mutch between the Langley nnd Mud Bay clubs waa a very interesting contest, nud nttrncted a lnrge

was disheartening, nnd the Mud Bay
boys gave tip tho contest. In tho afternoon a club of Indians from south of
tho l-mimlary challenged the winning
club; hut a few rounds satisfied (he

went up on the str, Gladys. At the
landing they wero received by thu Ohil-
liwhnuk brethren, a procession was
formed, uud the company marched to
a beautiful grove about hnlf a mile
distant, where an excellent luncheon
wus served, Tliu prooesaion was headed by nu nx-lenin, ns represcntntivo of
thu early days nf pioneer life. The
team wns driven by Mr. John Recce,
nud in the curt were seated two ladies,
who were among the oartieat pioneers
of the settlement. A flag impended
from a pole bore the words "Chilliwhack 1858," and the cart contained
also an old broom, a stove and pipe,
and some other articles of primitive
appearance. The whole concern was
displayed in such a way as to force
upon every one's mind the contrast between Chilliwhack in 1868 and Chilliwhack in 1886. After the cart came
the Hyack Brass Band, the Oddfellows
headed by P.O. McColl and DD.G.M,
Scoullar, and then a long line of carriages containing the wealth and
beauty of Chilliwhack, accompanied
by the visitors from various places,
Mr. J. C. Henderson acted as marshal).
ABBIVINO AT THB PLATFORM,
three hearty cheers were given for
the pioneers, and Mr. Jno. McCutch-
eon delivered an address of welcome
to the visitors. After luneheou the
Oddfellows proceeded to Henderson

over, the doors were thrown open to

that pleasure must give place to duty,
The Oddfellows and all the excursionists express themselves delighted with
their reception and entertainment at
Chilliwhack. Nothing occurred to
mar the pleasure of the occasion, and
there was only one man aeen during
the day under the influence of liquor.
At the landing a very handsome arch

(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Barkbrville, May 17.—On Sunday
afternoon the body of Mr. Wm. 0.
Jones, one of our pioneer miners, was
found lying in the wood behind his
cabin at Antler Creek stiff in death.
From the position and surroundings of
tho body it was evident that deceased
had been struck by the trunk of a tree
which he must have been felling on
Saturday afternoon, and which, in coming down, had lighted on another and
swung round in a direction unsuspected
bythe unfortunate deceased. Death
was no doubt instantaneous and without a struggle, the skull iu the neighborhood of the ear having been severely fruotured. Although Jones was
missed on Saturday night it was
thought he had gone to a neighboring
creek, and it was not till a thorough
search was instituted on Sunday afternoon that the body waa found as stated.
Hydraulic mining is, justcommenc-
ing, but only the more favorably situated claims have been able to get to
work. It will probably be two weettf
yet, or more, before all will be in full
operation. The usual summer inflow
of working miners has begun; and this
season it includes some who had gone
off to try the new diggings.
The political atmosphere is becoming
more and more agitated. Besides the
old members, Messrs. Cowan, Wilson,
and McLeese, there are in the field
Mr. George Ferguson, an ex-member,
Mr. S. Walker, Mr. Neil Campbell,
Mr. D. Murphy and Mr. A. Lander-
dale Shaw. Requisition* are in course
of signature aaking Mr. Joseph Mason,
of this place, to come forward as a can*
didate, snd as the movement, originated by the electora, is meeting with
moat encouraging success, Mr. Mason
may be reckoned the ninth candidate;
but after tfie polling we shall probably
have au exemplification of the old saying that the last shall be Hist- or
thereabout. I am not certain as to
the party whereabouts of all the candidates- if there is such a thing as party
in the contest; but Mr. McLeese was
of course one of the bitter—and bitten
—six, and Mr. Ferguson, having again
"jumped the fence" is once more, like
the Irishman, "agin the government"
of the day. Mr. Campbell, though his
association should be elsewhere, has
also, I believe, to be classed as an oppositionist. I might give you aome of
the humors of the campaign but for

FURTHER  COMPLICATIONS IK TKE FISHERY
QUARREL.
Portland, Me., May 25.-There.is
great excitement here. This morniug
the British schooner Sisters, from Yarmouth, with a cargo of '20,000 mackerel,
was seized by the collector of customs.
The captain of the schooner did not have
a manifest, aad the usual fine of $f>00
was imposed on him. As ho could uot
pay the fine the vessel with her cargo
was seised. Secretary Bayard and the
Maine congressmen have been informed
of the seizure. 0. Ji Whit-ten, secretary
of the Portland Fishery Exchange, said,
"Coming at this time the seizure of the
Sisters will do good. She comes from a
port so near Digby that the people will
hear of it, The matter having been referred to Secretary JJnyani, he will be
obliged to take notice of it." Capt. Ellis
this afternoon placed the case in the
hands of Vice-Consul Star, her majesty's
representative here, lie says if the
trouble ut Digby had uut occurred she
would not have been molested.
London, May 25, 4:H0 p. in.—The
greatest excitement prevails in ttie city
and throughout tbe kingdom and Ireland
at tiie announcement made in the house
of commona that Mr. Gladstone had tendered hia resignation and that of his
government to the Queen at Windsor
this afternoon.
Halifax, May 25.— As the schooner
Slaters waa seized at Portland for a violation of American customs laws, it is
not probable that the people of Nova
Scotia will attach any importance thereto or show the slightest degree of excitement. The affair occasioned no
excitement here.

power by tho Irish parliament with
those of the Dominion parliament,
how far short they fall. Canada can
legislate upon matters of defence end
militia, subject to the coramandership
of tlie militia forces being vested in
a nominal appointment by the British
government, but all these matters are
excluded from the powers uf the
Irish parliament. Canada does deal
with matters of treason, aa shown iu
the Kiel case; and legislates alao upon
questions of alienage and nationalization, trade, navigation, or quarantine;
the postal and telegraph service, beacons, lighthouses, and sea marks, coinage/ legal tender, weights and measures, local copyright and patent
rights; the right to deal with every
one of which iB denied to the Irish
parliament. Does it not appear that
the intense outcry against impairing
the integrity of the empire is based
upon gross ignorance of what powers
a locnl parliament might be allowed to
legislute upon without actual separation taking place?
But nil the foregoing list of prohibition.- from legislation by the Irish
parlinment do not by any means include the list. Clause four provides
that the Irish Legislature shall not
make any law—(1) respecting the
establishment or endowment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof; or (2) imposing any disability
or conferring any privilege on account
nf religious belief; or (3) abrogating or
derogating from the right to establish
or maintain nuy place of denominational education or any denominational
institution ur charity; or (4) prejudicially affecting the right of a ohild to
attend a school receiving publie money
without attending the religious instruction nt thut school; or (5) impairing,
without either the leave of he majesty-
in-council first obtained, or any address
prusented by the legislative body of
Ireland, or the consent of the corporation interested, the rights of property
or privileges of any existing corporation, incorporated by royal charter or
local and general act nf parliament; or
(ii) im posing or relating to duties of
customs and duties ef excise, as defined by this act, or either of such
duties, or aflectiug any act relating to
such duties, ur either of them; or (7)
affecting this act, except in ao far aa it
is declared to be alterable by the Irish
legislature.
With this formidable list of prohibitions the question naturally suggested
is not whether the powers of (he proposed Irish parliament are too extended but whether thero sre any possible
powers of legislation remaining. That
tiie Irish members are disposed to accept & measure with this long list of
prohibitions, ia in our opinion highly
creditable and showa conclusively that
the demands of the Irish people are
reasonable and may safely be granted.
We feel ashamed of the Canadians who
oppose home rule to Ireland, and are
charitably disposed to believe that they

So muoh is said derogatory to Mr.
Gladstone's sohemo for the local self-
government of Ireland, not only in
the press of Great Britain, but in that
of Canada; and ao much misunderstanding seems to prevail ns to the
precise character of its provisions, it
may be interesting to present these
leading features. The hill introduced
by Mr. Gladstone is by no means an
act of separation, because its very
essential and vital principle makes the
Queen in relation to the Irish parliament what she jb in relatiou to tho
Imperial parliament, tho nno person
whom ia vested all powers with
respect to summoning, proroguing mid
dissolving the Irish parlinment. Sho
can refuse hor assent to its acls, ns
she oan to those of the Imperial pur-
liamont; and what is of paramount
importance is that the command of
the army and navy, the power with
which to maintain the continuance of
this power is reaerved to herself. How
then oan suoh a measure as provides
this bo called an act of separation'
Briefly study the subjects upon
which the Irish parliament is forbidden to legislate; and then say, in thu
light even of the powers granted tn
our provincial legislatures in Canndn,
that Mr. Gladstone bus heen unduly

home rulers. Clause threo of the home
rule bill provides thnt the legislature
of Ireland shnll lint mnke Ift Wa relating to the following illation or any
of thom; (1) The status nr dignity nf

Ottawa, Out., May 21,-The bill
in amendment of the act respecting
fishing by foreign vessels in Canadian
waters wus read for the thirdjiqannd
passed to-day, and will probably become law within a week.
Toronto, May 22.—Referring to
tho report that the American fishing
schooner, Auguata Hcssick, had sailed
from Boston for the fishing aVounds,
armed with cannon and determined to
resist should any Canadian vessel attempt to seize her, tbe Olobe uys this
may prove a very serious matter if the
United Status government neglected
its duty whun it allowed thia vessel to
arm in one of its porta and to proceed
when armed to waters on which no
vessel honorably pursuing legitimate
business required auoh armament. If
permission was obtained from the government, its responsibility ia all the
greater. Should this vessel attempt a
forcible resistance when the British or
Canadian cruiser, duty commissioned,
attempts tu seize it in Canadian watera,
on the charge of haying acted illegally,
it may bo treated as a privateer. To
allow this vessel to go armed tb trespass uu a neighbor's territory is unworthy of a great country, especially
ao of her people. Canada will not be
deterred by nny danger of possible collision and ita possible consequences
from asserting its rights, and enforcing
those rights.
Ottawa, May 22.—The government
hns received nn official report from
Cnpt. Scott, of the Lansdowne, uf the
seizure nf the Adams. It confirms in
overy respect tho previous advices received by telegraph. The facts appear
to bo thnt the seized vessel, even if il
bo proved that sho wna buying bait,
cannot, under existing laws, ho held
ousvvcruMo for auch contravention of
international law. The law pruviding
for the seizure uf foreign vessel* for
certain uffenses is so wonted that buying bait is imt an offense under it.
Nrw Yokk, May 22.—A Washing-
ton special says tliat tlm department
is actively engaged iiuitogoHntions designed tn protect ihe Interests tif tlio
American tishormen. There has na y-'t
been no nfli-'iftl declnrn'i ti of its )••••

The' administration cannot properly
tnaW public thu correspondence hnd
with the Britisli minister here and with
uur miuiaft-r to England; but a despatch from Senator Bayard, whieh ful-
Ion-?, will show he hns tho interests of
the fishermen at heart. Senator Frye,
of MnitMi' recently addressed the sec*
rotary of slate the following letter:
"I ro-'peelfully submit to yuur con-
aideinlion the onclnsed telegram re*
ceived ihiu morning from-tho preside::! uf tho American fishery union.
I uBaiumi.'.hnt the state department is
giving this matter such consideration
na its importance demands. The urgency of immediate aotion for tho protection nnd relief of those American
citteotis cannot be over-estimated. I
regard the conduct of the Canadian
government as entirely unjustified, and
without the treaty of taw or good
neighborhood,'1* *
To this letter Secretary Bayard has
sent the following reply:
"Before your note nf to-day waa
received a telegram of similar purport
in relation to the refusal to allow the
American schooners Jennie and Julia
to purohnse herring for smoking at
Digby had beon received, and steps
wure taken by me to ascertain atl the
facta, nnd instant representation! made
tn (ho British minister to call to account the collector at Digby for what
P consider a gross breach of the commercial rights of the cltisens of the
United SUites. Tho late roprohonaible
action tit the Canadian officials in relation tr, the American flatting vessels
has occurred In remote localities with
out facilities for postal communication,
aud consequently thero has been delay,
regretable but unavoidable, in receiving consular reports; but your assumption, "that this department ia giving
the matter auch consideration as its
importance demands" will, f believe,be
fully sustained wheu the proper time
arrives for the publication of its action. I trust I am properly conscious
of the delicate and important public
functions, and that the interests and
honor of my country, and the rights
of the citizens will not be found to
have auffered at my hands."
A gentleman who has talked with
Secretary Bayard upon this subject
within a day or two says that he is as
much interested in the matter aa either
of the Maine senators can be, and that
he hu great regard for the fishermen.
He expresses himself very forcibly as
to the conduct of the Canadian authorities. He looks at the question
as an Amorican, aud nut from a party
standpoint and saya there ia no policy
in it, that the action of the department cannot be made public yet, hut
that he ean assure any congressional
friend of the fisherman that everything
thnt ia pussible is being done to protect their interests. With regard to
tbe refusal of the collector of customs
at Diirby to permit the captain of the
Jennie and Julia to buy herring there
to smoke, he said that he hod instructed Consul Phelan to go at once
to Digby and investigate. Secretary
Bayard deprecated any attempt on the
part of fishermen to coerce the Canadian government by force of arms,
and said tliat every step in that direction would weaken the United States
and strengthen Canada. He hoped
also that the American fishermen would
strictly observe the local customs rulings in Canada.
Portland, Me., May 22.—At a
special meeting of the city couucil today resolutions were passed denouncing the acta of the Canadian government iu seizing the American schooners aa an insult to the American Hug,
calling for reparation, and in case it
ia refused, asking that the United
States adopt retaliatory measures.
The resolutions are tu be sent to the
Maine senators. A Portland firm has
ou the way a Canadian schooner with
n full cargo of bait, and arrangements
are being made to establish a station
between the three mile limit ao as to
give Americans all tha bait they want.

question haa elicited aome discussion
amicable iu tone to America, proceeding
throughout on the theory that all difficulties ought to be settled by friendly
negotiations. England, observes the
Daily Telegraph, would not willingly
quarrel with America for all the codfish
ever caught and salted, Doubtless tbe
question is a diplomatic one, and the
Foreign Office will take a diplomatic
view of it. Tbe Foreign Secretary is
known both for his friendliness to America and his strong sympathy with the
coloniea. There could be no better time
for settling the question.
Milan, May 13.—According to the

saysi th-e talk of the day ia an article in
the Journal des Debats on the strained
relations between France aud Germany
whioh a» feeland to hava exiaUd siaoa
the death of M. Ferry. Tbe Journal des
Debate declares that the unfriendly feel*
ingwhUh Prince , Bismarck entertained
for ' Sngnud white M. Ferry was in
office is now directed toward France.
The hostile sentiment, the writer says,
is shown in the result of the Greek difficulty In which Bismarck has been sit
along bent on making France futile in
her diplomacy in foreign affairs when
ahe ia acting alone and without the aid
of Prussia. The Journal des Debats re
fers to the persistent attempts of the
German press to represent France as
ready for war with Germany at the tint
provocation, to the excessive importance
attached in Germany to the book, "At-
ant la Batailte," and to the presence in
tbe British foreign office of tbe personal
friends of Count Herbert Bismarck and
Earl Roaeberry as strong iudicationa of
the phllo-Angfican and anti* French feeling of the German government and ita

Paris, May 21.—M. DoLetsepa has
been interviewed on the subjeot of M.
Rossmos adverse report on the Panama
canal. He said that M. Rosseau naturally took a pessimistic view, but added M.
DeLesseps, the worst that even Rossenu
can say is that great difficulties have yet
to be overcome in cutting, nnd thnt cutting was contracted far lu-low what the
wotk will exactly cost." Commenting
on this DeLesseps said the contractors
Will have to suffer, If what M. Rosseau
aays be true, and not the company. "I
adhere to my belief that tlie canal will
lie completed in ISSIt, nnd I am ready to
furnish the government with all information and documents En my possession,
which confirm me in my impression."
Lonuon, May 'JI.—Mr. Gladstone iu
the Iiouse of commons this afternoon
stated he would on Monday next nsk the
house for a vote of supply on account,
ami then to take up the arms act for
daily debate. The bdl waa passed in
onler that it might lie brought into
operation before the old act expired.
Justin M'Carthy resumed thedobateon
tho home rule bill this evening. He said
that tho prospects of home rule had
brightened recently, thanka to Lord
Salisbury'a revival of the cry of ''No
Popery, and they could not afford to
wait for the elaboration of the scheme of
Imperial federation. The Irish parlinment would join the federation when
matured. He would rather Orangemen
were friends than enemies. He hoped
they did not mean to fight. They ought
rather to assist in regenerating their
fatherland. He earnestly hoped Mr.
Gladstone would not mutilate the bill or
postpone it for a year. Happen what
might, Mr. (< ladstone had already secured aelf-government for Ireland. (I'm*
louged cheers.} Mr, Childers, home secretary, said that while there was no danger In granting to Ireland the powers
which the bill confers there was danger
in refusing such powers. He believed
that, as In the caao of Australia and Canada, the measure would be accepted by
Ireland cordially, and the result would
be permanent attachment to England on
the part of the Irish people. Owing to
the large number of members who wish
te apeak on the home rule bill it is expected the debate will not close till the
end of the week after next.

Gestlemkn.-Iii presenting our report
for 1185, we bee to state that it becomes a
neeeaalty that provision should be made
tor greater accommodation and more
funds, if the Institution is to keep pane
with tbe growing requirement!*.
The Steward hoa performed hia duties
acceptably to the Directors, and the Hospital haa been kept in as efficient condition aa the premises admit.
The Sui*eon has been attentive in hia
dDtiea and reporta a lame Increase in the
number of In-door and out-door patients.
The Directors notice that patients from
•11 parts of the province aeek admittance
at thia inatitutlon, notwithstanding that
similar Inatltutlons are located In at least
four other parts of tbe province; and as to
tbe nationalities of tbe patients, the registry ahowi tbat. ettlaena from all parts of
the world have been admitted.
A great number of improvements have
been made during the year, A house has
beon built for the Steward, by which the
up-fltalr rooms of tbe Hospital are uaed ns
fever wards. Tbe foundations of tbe
buildings have been thoroughly over-
hauled and repaired; tbe two large warda
have been wafnaeotted and are fllled with
patients, In fact the Hospital has been
crowded through the whole year.     .. ,
A drain to the river ta JmuertfTlterv he-
eeaaattr, also wash and drying house,
woodshed, ftc. Those Improvements muat
be managed the coming year.
Tbe Board desire to thank Holy Trinity
Church congregation. Choral Union, and
Port Moody Literary Society for amounts
received from them, and tho following
ladies and gentlemen for old clothes,

I have to thank you for carrying out the

all we could wish for. Tbe Steward's

Tho waiuacottlng of the wards downstairs is a great Improvement.
Again I have great pleasnre'ln thanking

thnnk the Steward, Mr. Charles Digby,
for bia constant attention to tho cleauu-

of the sick and hia promptness In carrying out all my directions.
1 am sorry that you have not been nble
to undertake the construction of a thorough system of drainage about and from

I am yours faithfully,

TREASURER'S REPORT.
In presenting the accounts for the nasi
Sear, tbe Treasurer begs local! attention
t the fact that the outlay has been rigidly
scrutinised, in which he has been greatly
assisted by tho Steward, Mr. Digby. Still
there seems little prospect of any reduction of expenditure and, therefore, the
help of the government and the public
must lw Increased If the efficiency of the
Inatitutlon Is to he maintained.

A lump of clay and the ond of
* wax candle found themselves, by
lorne strange chance, side by side one
summer day, on a dust-heap. "I w
der yoo have the assurance to lie so
dose to me!" said the dainty wax
•neeringly; "a great,.common lump of
clay! and I have been on a tine lady's
dressing-table." "Ah!" aaid the day,
humbly j. "we are fellow-sufferera in
tdveruty; we must make the best we
can of It. I ought properly to have
been in yonder brick-field." "What
a come-down for me!" moaned tho
candle. "It doea not Bignify what becomes of you." The clay wiBely held
hii tongue. And the strangely-assorted companions in misfortune dropped
into silence. "I wish it waa a little
warmer," aaid the clay to himsolf.
"Dear me, how hot it is getting?"
grumbled the wax candle. Presently
the sun grew hotter and hotter, and
the piece of wax candle gradually
melted away. But the clay only bo-
came harder and tinner than ever.
Thus it is, the hopeful and self-reliant.
when tried by the* heat of adversity,

The Empress or Japan.
The Empress Haru is a slight little
woman not live feet in height. She
has the pale, yellow skin, the finely
cut features and long ovul face of the
high caste Japanese. Although a friend
to all progressive movements, the
patron and instigator of many reforms
and advancement, and a woman of surprisingly modern views, tho Empress
•till blackens her teeth in the old
style, and thin arches of eyebrows hnve
been traced above those that she dutifully shaved at marriage, Beyond a
jewelled ornament fastened above her
brow, her costume and coiffure did not
differ at all from that of the ladies surrounding her, and at a distance the
parasol was , her only" distinguishing
mark. Nearer, there was a majesty ul
demeanor, a dignity of presence, an
impressive, intangible something, that
divinity of a ruler, and had she stood
in the garden alone she would have
been aa impressive in manner and as
much a sovereign as when surrounded
by her suite, with court and strangers
bowing low. The Empress wore the
red slippers and skirt, and a kimono of
rich bluish purple silk, brocaded with
large moon figures in pale colors. The
pointed neck was filled with folds of
white Bilk, and she balanced in her
hand an umbrella of the purplish silk
embroidered all: over with wistaria.
She passed straight on to the long
marquee tent, and, (jiving her parasol
to her attendant, entered and Bat alono
in a thronelike chair beforo a large
oval table. Her sixteen attendants
stood in a picturesque and brilliant
line behind her and the diplomats, the
other ladies and nobles were seated at
little tables before her. The palace
attendants served the company to the
elaborate collation of everything boned,
jellied, and iced, and truffled, the
beautiful set pieces were broken up,
and champagne frothed in thin crystal
glasses graven with the imperial crest
of the sixteen-petalled chrysanthemum.
Every one waB served quietly and
decorously, the,.bands played, theru
wm the subdued hum of soft, low
voices in conversation, and one by one
the Empress summoned the wives of
the foreign ambassadors nnd ministers
to her for a few gracious words.— Japan Letter.
.    Remarkable Trees.
In Madagascar ia to be found a treo
called the traveller's tree, yielding a
copious supply of fresh water from its
leaves. Aa it will thrive in any arid
country where planted, ita benefits to
the traveller are great.
In Venezula there is a cow tree,
which grows on otherwise barren rocks.
Its leaves are feathery and crisp, but
by making incisions in the trunk peculiar greyish milk comes out, wliich is
tolerably thick and of an agreeable
balmy smell. The natives gather
around these trees at sunrise and bring
large bowls with them to receive the
milk, for towards mid-day the heat of
the sun turns tho milk sour. The
sight of a cow tree puzzles the innocent
traveller, who cannot account for the
trunk being plugged up all over with
bungs and short sticks. The natives
also use the milk as a gum.
The butter tree waa first discovered
by European travellers in the centre
of Africa; from the kernel of the fruit
is produced a nice butter, which, aaya
Livingatone, "will keep a year." On
a par with this is the mana tree, found
in Calabria and Sicily. In August,
when it ib the custom to tap the tree,
a sap flows out. It is then left to
harden by evaporation, after which the
mana, cf a sweet but somewhat sickly
taste to any but those accustomed to
it, may be gathered. In Malabar there
is the tallow tree. From the seeds of
this, when boiled, is produced a firm
tallow, which makes excellent candles,
The guava tree of the Indies hears a
fruit giving large quantities of a rich
and delicious jelly.
But the most remarkable tree yet
discovered nourishes on thu island uf
Fierro, one of thu largest of the Canary
group. The island is so dry thnt nut
even a rivulet is to bB found, yet there
is » species of tree the loaves of which
nre, narrow and long and coutinuu
green throughout tho yenr. There is
also a constant cloud surruundinir the
tree, which is condensed and fallinj* in
drops koops the cistern placed under
them constantly full. In thia inaunor
tho natives of Fierro obuin water, and
ai the supply is limited tho population
must of necessity be limited ton.
In Japan and some islands in tlu- Fn-
cific there is the camphor tree. Tho
camphor forms in the trunk nf the
tree in concrete lumps, and somo
pieces have been found as thick as a
man's nrm.
The sorrowful tree is fuund only in
the island of Goa, near Bombny, nnd
(s BO c-lled because from morning until
the time of sunset no flowers are to be
seen, but soon after it is covered wiih
them. As the sun rises the■potnla cloao
and fall off. Stranger still, thu flowers
blossom at night all the yenr round
and give out a most fragrant odor.
Thero is another curioua tree iu Ja*
maica know m the life tree, ou account
of It* leaves growing even after severed
from tho plant. Only by fire can ynu j
entirely destroy it.— IAunbet World.
Salaries of Governors.
Horn are some figures cuticomiiig

and Maine $2000; Oregon pays 31500,
the same ns little Vermont; the only
states that pay leas are Michigan,
Rhode Island nnd New Hampshire,
who- pay #100p.' "Go».--.MvI>#imelt"
aaya the Atlanta {Gfc);($iMw£&tit
came into otlice with"' liti Incfomo of
abouj 83000 from investuietitfj, nnd
that was supplemented by about 83000
in fees collected for services .performed
before the olectiun. To that-waa added
the 83000 paid by ttie state, and the
governor hns thus had un income of
$0000. Ilo y|luiiils about §0000 a year,
or double the salary, and yet. lie itt regarded by. everybody as t\ irtrin of ox-
cedingly modest aud inexpensive
hnbjte. Tho bost judges say a governor
cannot get along un leas than $0000 a
year, and evon then ho will show nothing but democratic simplicity.*' The
constitution of Oregon ought to be
amended, so that uur governor oould
be paid a decent salary.— Ofegonian,
A Judge's Opinion.
.While Judge Walton wiw at work in
hia chamber one day, many yenra ago,
drawing up nu upiniun in a knotty
case, a certain lawyer came hi. This
lawyer, who has since died, waa a thin,
tooth pick ill), dudish sortof mnu,. whom
the judge- did not like very woll;.and
than whom he had rather have seen
Daniel Pratt himself walking into hiB
chamber.
''Weil, "Brother Lightweight',• What
can I do for you this morning T' asked
Judge Walton, hoping to get rid of,the
fellow. "'   ,   '..',.
"Nothing," lie replied. "I only
came in tn make -you a call;"
After a disagreeable silence the judge
looked up again and asked:
"Brother Lightweight, why don't
yuu get married?"
"Because I can't afford it.    How
much do you suppose it costs me to
live now?"
Tho "judge said he wouldn't guess.
"Welt, it costs me SliOOO a year for
just my own living,"
An expression of surprise came on
the judge's face.
"Lightweight," aaid he, "I wouldn't
pay it.   It ian't worth it."

"Men will sham nny complaint nowadays to nvoid their work," suid our
worthy skipper, ns he Bat at the head
of the breakfast table on our firat day
out. "I had a fellow once who pretended to have lamed himself when
we were about half-way out to Calcutta; and he did it ao well that nobody
ever suspected him a bit, till one night
there was u fnlse alarm of fire, and
the way thnt lame man flew up the
ladder would have astonished an aero-
hat."
"Well," aaid I, "you remember that
atory of the Irishman wlm went about
Dublin with 'Pity tho poor blind*' on a
board round hia neck, and mnde quito
a good trade of it, till at laat one of
the people who used to give to him
met him in a by-street, stepping along
like a prize pedestrian.
" '\ou old humbug!' cried he, 'you
see as well us I do.'   .
" 'Sure, thin,1 snys Paddy, looking
down nt the 'blind' board that he carried, 'they've hung the wrong boprd
on mo to-day by mistake. It's deaf
and dumb I am.' "
"Well, I once saw something almost
as good as thnt myself," said my right-
hand neighbor, Prof. T- , "when I
was on a visit to my friend Dr. L—
in the east of France.   There was a
great conscription going on just then
for the Crimean war, and L had to
test tho recruits as they came in, to
see whether they were fit fpr service.
"Now among these fellows there
waB ono fine, sturdy Auvorguat, just
the stuff for a soldier, if he hadn't unluckily been stone-deaf. So he said,
ut leaBt, and it certainly appeared to
be true, fur nil the tests that th«y
applied to him couldn't make him give
any sign of hearing a bit. I tally believed hia case to be genuine; but I
could see by the twinkle tn Dr. L—
eyo thnt he didn't. .     .
" 'That'll do, my man,' said L	
to him at Inst, in a low voice.' 'You're
too deaf to be of any use tq us. You
can go.'
"Instantly tha recruit, forgetting
himself in his glee nt having got off so
easily, sprang toward the dour like s
cat.
" 'Not bo fust, my fine fellow,'
shouted the recruiting oflicer; 'if you
can hear (Imt, you're not too deaf for
the army. You're a mighty cunning
mgue, but this time we've caught you
in your trap."'— IIarper\t Magazine.
B-ebr Monopoly,*—A matter which
ia attracting much attention iu Kngland is tho rapid diminution of the
number of brewers, Sixteen years
ago the brewers of the United Kim:*
dom numbered 32,000. Between 1870
nnd 1880 they grew fewer at the rato
tif a thousand a year, nnd at the last
mentioned >ialu only mustered some
22,000. In 1881 lhey had become
reduced to 15,000. Since then
tlie decline Iiob been less rapid, hut
Kl ill (hey nre yearly losing ground
to it most surprising extent. They
uumbur nt the present time only 13,-
000, or 10,000 less lliau sixteen years
ago, Wore there a corresponding do-
urease in tho outiBuinption of beer it
would be a oiuMin i>f groat rejoicing to
temper-iiieu advocates; but such is uut
iho i:;.uii'. though llm itiiipei-aticu move.
ment hus had a perceptiblo effect upon
the business, nnd it is eipected to still
fur-her curtail it. The greut cause is
the levying of a duty upon beer instead
of upon malt, which had the effect of
concentrating the business in fewer
haiida.
A large landowner in Cheshire has
