FOIL TEXT OF THE VICTORIA JUDGMENT.
As un influential petition has
been presented to the council of
this city asking to have a by-law
passed requiring Iwrs to close on
Sunday,and some'misapprehension
exists as to the powers of the cor*
poration, the following judgment
delivered on thB27th January, 1886,
by Mr. Justice Gray, at Victoria,
will bo rend with interest:
In the matter of Samuel Olay nnd
"the Retail Liquor license Begula-
tion By-law 1885" (So. Ho.)
This is nn application to set aside
'4: conviction of the defendant for
an alleged breach of the said by law
by the police magistrate Mr. Johnson in December last and the imposition of a fine of $50 or imprison
ment for one month unless the line
with costs be paid.
The first section of the by-law
under which the offence is as follows:
"No person shall open or keep
open or permit to be opened or kept
open or assist in opening or keeping
open any saloon, tavern or place for
the sale of, or sell any intoxicating
liquor by retail within the city of
Victoria between 12 o'clock at night
and 6 o'clock in the next forenoon
on any day, nor between 10 o'clock
in the forenoon and 5 o'clock in the
afternoon on Sunday, but this clause
shall not apply to the sale of liquor
with u meal in hotel or restaurant."
The object of this by-law was
good, its enforcement desirable. The
defendant Olay, a saloon-keeper in
the city of Victoria, was guilty of
on infringement of it by keeping
open his saloon for the sale of intoxicating liquors on the 21st and
22nd November and there' selling
intoxicating liquors by retail between
the hours of 12 p. in. and 5 n. rathe next morning—was convicted"
and fined—and on appeal now raises
the quostion of the validity of the
by-law.
That depends upon whether it is
within the scope of the powers conceded to the council of the corporation by the "Municipalities Act of
1881" as controlled by the British
North America Act of 1867.
■The powers of tho council uro defined in section 104 of the "Municipalities Act, 1881, and as bearing
on this question itre limited to two
purposes: .
1. For raising a revenue for municipal purposes.
2, For the maintenance of public
morals,
Sections 1, 2, 3, are:
For raising a municipal revenue
by licenses, taxes or rates upon persons or upon real or personal property, and for regulating the mode of
lessening or collecting the same.
2. Shop, saloon, tavern and other
licenses.
3. Saloons, tavern and billiard
rooms.
The primary object of any by-law
under these three subsections would
be that of raising a revenue for municipal purposes by means of licenses,
taxes or rates.
But there are other objects which
the public interests demand besides
money, for instance the promotion
of decency, good order, public morality. These are to be enforced by
regulations, orders, penalties. The
first appertains to revenue, the second to police, and both are powers
the local legislature had the undoubt
ed right to confer on the municipal-
icy. Bearing on the present question, we must turn to subsection 38
as conferring . power under the sec
ond head, namely: "To order and
enforce the closing of saloons during such hours of the night and on
Sundays as may be thought expedient. It will be observed that section 38 is limited to saloons. The
term saloon in English bos no absolute, limited technical definition but
by general acceptation when used
in municipal and police regulations,
.ml by its contiguity with other
places of resort in the B, N. A. Act,
1867, and the provincial legislation
thereon, may be described ns a place
ot reception open to the public by
municipal authority for amusement
or drinking had or enjoyed upon the
premises. Saloons as in this country so generally accepted differ from
taverns, restaurants, or hotels, whioh
aro more particularly licensed for
travelers and lodgers, and whioh necessity and public convenience both
require should be as to hours and refreshments governed by different
rules. Saloons are not for purposes
of rest or food, but for purposes of
pleasure; and in too many instances,
as shown by the late November
and December assizes in Viotoria,
are degraded into places of drunkenness and crime. Undoubtedly in the
management of municipal nffnirs the
council not only have the power but
it is their duty to make regulations
for the maintenance of order and
decency and the prevention of drunkenness and crime.
Important however, ns is this duty,
it must be carried out in subordination
to tho constitution of tho country and
tho paramount law of the land.   .
There is no Dominion law absolutely
prohibiting the sale of liquors in Canada, aud the province cannot pass any
such law, as it would be .'direct interference with "trade and commerce,"
one of the subjects of {legislation reserved exclusively for the Dominion
parliament. Tho power therefore given
by the province to the municipality
must be strictly limited as above set
forth both as to revenue and public
morals to regulate, hot prohibit; and
the municipality must act within tho
expressed powers conferred by the pro-,
viimial legislature, not nn inch beyond,
because however good theoretically an
object may bo, it oan ouly br! enforced
upon unwilling parties by law. English liberty admits of no individual restriction except that whioh is clearly
defined or recognized as law. And one
contention on the part of the defen*
dnnt by his counsel here is that this bylaw operates as a general prohibition
and is not either for purposes of municipal revenue or within the limitation
of tho 38th subsection. So far as the
bylaw embraces any place which is
not a saloon it iB clearly beyond the
power given—a tavern or a shop
license does not come within the definition of a saloon. A distinction is
made between them in the 2nd and
3rd subsections, and though the two
might be under one' roof or under
one annex, it is clear a separate license might be demanded for
each and one be closed without tho other. A conjunction
might add to the difficulty of enforcing the law, but that is a matter of
police regulation and does not touch
the principle. I also think that when
the power is given to close the saloon
it moans the stopping of the sale of
liquor on tho premises during th. prohibited hours. The on. is incident to
the other. It is not a restraint further than that which tho statute imposes. Closing a saloon does not in
its legal construction mean merely
shutting the door, but it means closing the business there carried on, nor
can such limited and local stoppage be
considered aa a general prohibition of
sale, ao aa to be any interference with
trailo or , commerce. It ia simply a
'police-regulation under competent authority that for good municipal government tho business shall not be carried on at certain times and in certain
places, onder objectionable circumstances. The powers of the municipality of Victoria were so clearly denned on these point, in the case of the
Queen vs. Vieux Vtoland by myself is
December, 1881, that it is not necessary to add more, further than that
they Imve been fully continued and
sustained by Hodge vs. The Queen 0
L. R. (0.) appeal cases in 1883, aud
must now be regarded as governing
law. B»t admitting that the by-law
would be good as to saloons and that
the "closing" would comprehend th.
stoppage of tho sale of liquor on the
premises if limited to saloons, the objection still remains that the by-law
declares " that no person ahull sell any
intoxicatinn liquors by retail within
the oily of Victoria between 12 o'clock
at night and 5 o'clook in tbe next forenoon on nny day." Under what aub-
section of tlio municipal powers call
this be brought, no exception aa to
place, no exception na to circumstances, sickness, medioal uiiin, druggist, shop license, or absolute, unexpected necessity for its use. The legislature deemed it proper to authorise
interference with saloons for many
and good reasons, but where as to the
genoral public did it authorize its interference with private rights or rights
acquired by license, not so restricted,
or assume that every vendor or vendee
by retail uf intoxicating liquors between those hours intended or waa
likely to use them for improper purposes or to immoral ends or contrary
to law to the public detriment?
"For between," it adds, " 10 o'clock
in the forenoon and 5 o'clock in the
afternoon on Sunday bnt this clause
shall not apply to the aale of liquor in
nn hotel or restaurant." As punctuation has no place in legal construction,
and as tliu term " clause" instead of
" section" by grammatical construction limits this exception in favor of
Sunday to the sale with a meal in an
hotel or restaurant, the question naturally arises—Why litis discrimination ? Why the exclusion of Ihe tavern? Why this limitation to the hotel
or restaurant, and of the hotel or restaurant to certain hours on Sunday t
It is plain that was not what was intended, even if it could be assumed
that the object was to bring the restriction under sub-section 31" Public morals including Ihe observance of
the Lord's day commonly called Sunday."
It is not to be assumed thst because this particular bylaw may bo
ineffectual tu tho ends proposed, that
therefore there is no law regulating
sales of intoxicating liquors or punishing immoral and improper conduct resulting from their usu or abuse in.
taverns, saloons and other similar
places. Apart from tho powers conferred and the penalties imposed by
the Municipalities Act with reference
"lo certain subjects, tho legislator, hu
declared that the council ahall have
exceptional powers of regulation and
legislation: what it has not declared to
be within that class of subjects cannot
be assumed.
Hadth. legislature intended th.t
tho "closing'' power should extend to
taverns and all other partis*, and
places as well ns to saloons it would
have said ao. Had it been dnmed
necessary for publio morala,sub.seotion
38 might have been rasdo as eompre-
hensive aa sub-sections 2 and 3. As
it stands the by-law in other respects
is unreasonable, making no distinction
as to places or requirements to invalids, or travelers—Mid is objection.,
ble as discriminating between hotels,
restaurants and tavern.—snd compel. .
ling parties to nay in particular ptac"
for what they do not require—in of-
der that aa travelers or invalids they
may get what may at th. time be tied
esssry for health or allegation front
pain—why ahould a traveler or an ill'
valid in his tavern bo compelled to |ii
out to an hotel or restaurant when th.
tavern keeper pays a license to give
him—■hit he ia to get at the hotel or
restaurant.
It is an essential qualification of .
by-law that it should be both reasonable and impartial, boring on »ll
alike.
There are .till, however, two point*,
remaining to be considered.

nested with or easantisl to each other;
each must be whole, and complete to
stand jiei- se.   It might b. possibl. by
striking out every part of this by-law
except the words whioh refer to "Mie  '
rfosiiijt of saloons during certain hturs
of the night and on Sundays," to hold
it good, and so far it might be  hehj
good aa to all licenses taken  out lot |
saloons after the passing of the by-law,
namely the 4th of November, 1885;
but it leaves an instance of law-making that it might be better to  repeal
.and re-enact in proper form.  Aa bear-1
ing, however, on  the    present   cam I
there is another objection whioh even   -
if so much of the by-law above mentioned were held good  would   render
its application illegal.
On the trial the defendant contended that the by-law waa illegal' and inapplicable to himself, as it was an interference with the rights acquired before ih. by-law under h;a license from
th. council, which license waa then in
full force aud unexpired.
' Mr. Johnson overruled Ih. objection
upon die ground thst at tk. time the
defendant took out his license he must
be presumed to havo known that the
council had power to regulate his sa.-
loon and close it during certain hours,.
and that therefor, the by-law was applicable to him.
I regret that in this wnclusion 1
have to differ with that learned nnd
worthy magistrate. 'The issue uf
licenses is regulated by the License
Ordinance, )807, and the Munioipali,
ties Act, 1881. There are certain oc ,
cupations defined jn the schedule to
that ordinance and the act which it i»
not permissible to carry on without
having first obtained license so to do
under a penalty of (250 for .very mod'
offimca, tngsther with tk. amount of
the license f#a,'rhe two together .on-
stituting one penalty. The licenses
are made terminable twice a' year tin
the 30th day of June and tbe 31st day
of December. The license fee must
be paid is advance without any dense- >
tion in amount for shortness of period,
from commencement of business.
The schedule specifies distinctly the
business of a saloon-keeper and th.
form of license is simply "that AB has
paid the sum of t in respect of. .
license to and is entitled tn carry
on the business or occupation of—" in
the municipality act   "from to    i
188—" Neither in the ordi.
nance, the act, the schedule, or the
license is there any limitation as to all
time or hours during which the business may be carried on. A marked
distinction exists between a mere per-
sonal license or arbitrary permission,
revocable at will, and a municipal
license for a stated period authorised
by statute, and based upon a pecuniary
conaideration. The first is a voluntary
sufferance; the second is a statutory
contract. Under the Licenses Ordinance, 1867, and the Municipalities
Act, 1881, the term "license'' bean
the latter construction. It thus becomes a contraot between the licensing
power and the licensee for good consideration, that during the period, each
half year, terminable on the 30th of
Juno and 31st December, the business
may be carried on subject tn the
general existing law, whatever that
maybe.
There is nothing iu the general law
—which says a man may not, with curtain exceptions us to Sundays, carry,
on his business during any hour of the
day or night.
The legislature transferred this
power nf issuing licenses and raising a
revenue thereby to the municipalities.
It went further and gave to the municipalities a power of closing saloons
"during particular times" but that
power was to be exercised subject to
the inimitable principals of justice and
the general law of the land. The intention of the legislature must be
giiihered from the whole of the muni-
cijmlities net and the general legists
tives of tho province on the subject of
licenses, tr. post facto legislation is .1-.
ways objectionable, and particularly
so in oases like the present, where the
consideration money for the license
has to lie paid in advance. When the
legislature enacted that stipulation,
and limited the duration uf the license
to six months, it conclusively showed
that during thnt period "faith" was to
be kept and nothing but a paramount,
overwhelming necessity could justify a
breach of it on tho part of th. licensing
power. No such necessity here existed
or has been shown, lu six weeks from
the passing of thst by-law overy license
expired. Its application to new license* in principle could not be objected to.
Tho legislature itself hud no power
to authorise the breaking of contract,
—it transferred none—it attempted to
transfer none. It gave its saving power
for the public interests in maklksl
these contracts extremely short. All
that is required in by-laws to this end
is to mak. them corns into operation
on the 1st of July or th. IM of Janu-
[See Fourth Pare.)

The- New York Post lately called
attention to the difference in the
people of England and America in
respect to church attendance. Taking a certain number of churches in
London, under normal conditions,
it was found that the evening congregation was 22 per cent, larger
than that of the morning. The
New York Witneu says the practice is very different in that oity,
th. ohurohe. generally being very
thinly attended iu the evening, and
it odd. that at any time the churches
are not .. well attended as in Canada and Great Britain. There are
many temptations influencing people
to absent themselves from church in
the evening especially; but those
who yield to these temptations often
find themselves pursued by an inclination to abandon church going
altogether.
We have occasion sometimes to
complain of the desperate ignorance
displayed by Englishmen respecting
the geography of Canada. It happens sometimes, however, that Canadians themselves do not exhibit a
remarkably clear comprehension of
the geography of their own country.
Complaints have been made by persons from the east who wished to
visit this city that they could not
get tickets to Westminster. In
some of the eastern 0, P. B. offices
they (aid they had no Westminster
ticket., and one agent went so far
as to argue that Westminster and
Vancouver. were the same place.
This grievance having been brought
to the notice of Mr, Yon Home last
night by the mayor, the C. P. R.
manager promised that it would at
once disappear. He remarked that
he bad been forced on several occasions to teach Canadian geography
to tbe railway agents, and his lessons wero usually remembered. The
incident is worth remembering inasmuch as it show, a disposition on
the part of the officers of the road
to meet the reasonable wishes of the
rile of this oity. Indeed, it must
said for them that they have in
nearly every oase been very willing
to listen to the complaints and suggestions of the mayor, and to promise such changes in policy or prac
tice as would meet the views of the
representative men of the city.
Westminster has been generous and
just in her treatment of the railway
company, and it will be gratifying to
find the company disposed to treat
us in the oome spirit. The interest, of Westminster and those of
the 0. P. R. are identical. The
rapid growth of this city means increased business for the road, and
the prosperity ol the railway will
be a benefit to the city. We hope
this mutual .relationship will be
fully recognised and acted upon.

The action taken against the Victoria Timet for libel reminds us that
there are still two libels pending
against the Columbian. One of
these was begun over two years
.go by Mayor Fell, of Victoria, the
alleged libel being contained in a
telegram from Victoria which appeared in this journal. But Mr.
Fell has failed to go on to trial with
the case, and there does not seem
to be any probability that he ever
will proceed. The other cose was
that of Dr. Trew, of this city. This
promised action grew out of the
publication of a letter written by
the husband of one of Dr. Trew's
patients, who seems to have got the
idea that there had been improper
medical treatment. He wrote to
the Columbian over bis own signature, and Dr. Trew, after making
free use of th. Columbus's columns
to defend himself, caused a letter to
be sent from his solicitor intimating
that action would be taken to recover damages against the newspaper!
We doubt if there it on record a
similar cose — where action was
taken against a publisher for a let
tor over the bona fide name of the
writer, after the plaintiff had made
free un of the newspaper for hi.
own defence. But although it is
now many months since notice of
proceeding, w.s served, no action
ever was entered. These libel suits
.re in some cue. embarrassing to
publisher., who, a. a rule, have not
110,000 to squander on every per
un who conceive, himself tb have
been treated unfairly. It cannot be
denied that there is such a thing as
a real newspaper libel, and that it
I. sometimes of such a nature as to
call for real punishment; but when
a newspaper adheres to the principle
and practice of fair play and impartiality, putting forward the pub
lie interest always as of first importance, it doe. not need to concern
itself seriously about libel suits.
They may be vexatious for a time,
but the result of them need never
be viewed with alarm. For this
reason we go forward each morning
to the duties of the day without
misgiving, and await with equanimity the ingathering of the fruit, of
iU labor.

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL REPORT.
Gkntlemev—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state that it will be an utter
impossibility to run the hospital free of
debt on the grant just voted by the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon baa been attentive in his
duties and reports a large increase in the
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also that we have received
patients from all parts of the province.
There are a number of Incurables in
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Victoria hospital years ago. The
mim of $1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, tbe last
few years. The Board think, thorefore,
that some of these inourables should bo
shipped back to Viotoria.
A great number of improvements have
been made during tho year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; the
building-being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expond-
inure.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity during the whole yearv
Tho Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous aubstriptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the congregations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist aud
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladies and
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.

The surgeon's report is appended hereto, and gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for each resident patient In tbo hospital, which iu*
eludes the disbursements on out-door
patients, is 67 cents.

Tbe last Murder.
KILUNO OF PETES" FOSTER NEAR KAM100PS.
The man Peter Foster, who was
shot by Frank Spencer on Campbell's
ranoh, near Kamloops, on the 20ih
inst., died at the hospital on the following day. He was a French, Canadian, and 22 years of age. The evidence at the inquest shows that the
tn.ublo and quarrel originated in
whisky, the fruitful source of crime.
The dying deposition of the murdered
man wu taken, as follows:
"Yesterday we shipped Lieut.
Campbell's horses at Duck's for Calgary. Before we started from Duck's
I gave Frank Spencer §5 and told him
to buy whisky. When we returned to
Campbell's he wu tha worse of liquor
—pretty full. He had four bottles,
one nearly drauk, leaving three full.
He ssid, ' Pate, these belong to you.'
I asked him for the other one, and he
tot mad snd got his knife out of his
pocket. It wu a pocket knife. He
came up to roe and uid he would cut
me to pieces. I told him,' Don't you
do it, Frank; if you want to fight I
will go for you; I will not baok out.'
After he said that he Dot a glasa and
threw it at mo, and it broke to pieces
on the wall. He then got two horseshoes. He missed me with one, and
it etruck a little boy about four years
old, knocking the child down. He
cam. at me with another and said,
• I will kill you, you son of a b— of
. Frenchman.' I got. horseshoe he
had thrown >t me, and I went forhim,
giving him . good dose—I fought him
good. He told me h. got s knife. I
then ran away out of the house
and h. ran alter me. I took the old
... and went for him. He went into
the house snd got th. gun and shot
me close to the root house. He started to shoot m. .gain,"
Th. jury brought in a verdict of
wilful murder against Spencer, who Is
still at Urge. The Sentinel says there
has been mueh complaint expressed
over the manner in which tho search
for the murderer has been conducted,
and believes the complaints are not
without rouse.

old contracts oxpire and the licensee
takes out his now license or contract
under tho now law, and subject to any
existing regulations then in force under
tho municipalities net. That act lias
substantially adopted the licenses ordinance, 1807,—it schedules scales and
forms and bos tit great length defined
tho extended powers given by the legislature to tlio municipalities and haa
by section J oil, expressly on complaint,
authorized tho revocation or suspension
of liquor licenses, it would sap all
conhdonoo in contracts with tliu corporation, if after largo sums paid for
those licenses in advance, the corporation could pass by-laws materially
deprecating tho value uf tho license
In casus of individual misconduct tho
law provides for punishment or forfeiture, but a by-law of this nature
violates tho contract whore thore ha*
been no misconduct.
When therefore tbo presumption
that the power of passing such a bylaw was known to the defendant is
urged by tbo magistrate it must equally bo presumed that the defendant
know that it could not be enforced
against himself ponding his contract.
It is undoubtedly iu the general interest of good order, morality, temperance, and tho prevention of crime,
that a by-law closing saloons during
particular times and hours should bo
{uisscd and enforced, but no good can
te obtained by a violation of principle.
Tho conviction must be sot asido with
costs.
