The New License Act*
lu moving tho socond reading of
tlie new licenso bill on  Monday,
Hon. Mr. Robson said that he fully
realized   tho    reeponsibility    that
rested upon him.   The uesessity for
legislation in this direction would,
he thought, be iidmitted on all hands/
I During his thirty juars experience
' in British   Columbia   he was   not
aware  of  any   legislation   having
.been more loudly culled for by the
people.    During several years  petitions praying for some measure of
the kind had been sent in to   the
house.   During the present session
petitions bearing some three thousand signatures had been presented,
—one from   Victoria  alone  being
signed by some twelvo hundred and
ninety persons, from the bishop of
Columbia down; and in addition to
these there had been appeals from
intluential ecclesiastical   bodie and
temperance organizations.   He also
referred to  petitions,  protests and
appeals   from   outlaying  districts
asking either for restriction er prohibition.   One   of  these petitions,
sent in a year or so ago, was from
the district of Oassiar, praying  for
total prohibition, and one  notable
feature of thut petition was that it
was signed by every person in that
district holding a license to aell intoxicating liquors! ' There could be
no doubt us to the necessity of such
legislation and the  d(*sire of the
country for it.   He felt that it was
unnecessary to dwell upon the evils
and cost of the traffic.   Indeed the
whole subject has been so fully and
ably discussed that he felt he could
advance nothing new, shed no fresh
light upon  it.     The  traffic   was
proved to be tbe cause of nine-tenths
of the crime and misery  in  the
world, and *Ye know even from our
own experience  in  this  province
how enormously  it increases  the
cost of the administration of justice.
Whatever might be his own personal
views on the subject of prohibition,
he did not propoae legislation Upon
that line at tne present time.   It
was not proposed to take  any extreme step, and he contended tbat
the  present measure was a   very
moderate  one  as  compared   with
those from which it bad been chiefly
compiled.   He invited  the  atten
tion of hon. memben to some of its
leading provisions,   .. wtett .on' a
former occasion, its governing principles were local option, limitation, j
regulation and higher license fees.
The principle of local option was one
that lie  felt assured would  commend  itself to every fair-minded
person in and out of the house.   It
was in accordance with our system
of government   that the majority
should rule; and if,  in any  community a majority were averse to
the introduction of a licensed house
it should not be in tho power of anyone to forco it upon them.    As to
the policy of limitation, he thought
it equally incontrovertible    Take,
for  instance,   a   community  only
sufficiently large for six saloons to
do a paying business, by legitimate
trade    in    intoxicating     liquors.
License double   that number, and
what   will    happen)    They  will
simply bo driven to do business on
illicit lines, and he instanced a oase
in point, where one of tho dealers
crime out in tho public newspapers,
and frankly admitted that as thero
were  more  licensed  places   than
could possibly   live   by legitimate
trado, they were compelled tn resort
to illegal means, such as gambling
and selling to Indians.     In   this
respect, also, the present  measuie
was extremely moderate.    In the
city of Toronto,for instance, there
was only one liquor license to overy
eight hundred  of the   population.
By    restricting    the    number   of
licenses and imposing a high   fee,
this traffic would be gradually confined to more responsible and  respectable men, and  thus  the evils
arising from it would be lessened.
Another important provision of tho
measure was that which prevented
tho supplying of liquor to minors or
habiluul drunkards,   He was quite
sure everyone would reprobate the
giving of liquor to   boys  or  girls
under age, and the practice of selling to the habitual drunkard was
equally reprehensible.      He   knew
more limn  one community   where
this wns done, wliere men, in every
other way estini rble and lovnblejiad
sn completely yielded to the appetite
for-silling drink ns   to give   themselves completely up to it and literally beggar their families.     There
were instances even in this   city
where the poor wife had with lears
irni'lirioil tlie dealer not to supply
the maddening clip to the husband,
but in vitin.    He wns glad to   believe tlioro were noble exceptions-
liquor Hnnliri'S who would not sup-
|rly liquor to such persons; but, unfortunately, thero wore others who
would. It was surely proper, it was
our duty to put a stop to such a
heartless, such an unbrotherly practice. The bill proposed limiting the
hours of sale during week nights,
and prohibiting the salo on Sunday.
Without rising to the higher plane
of morality and religion at all,
surely it would not be donied that
to rest one day in seven was good.
It was good for both man and beast;
and surely it must be good for those
.engaged in the liquor traffic. He felt
confident that a taiiajority <f (hose in
hire trade would prfefor afciolute rest
from their business on tho .Sabbath,
if the closing of the licensed houses
were uniform and universal. The
difficulty in the way of Sunday
closing in towns and cities was this,
tbe trade would be carried on outside the city limits, and dealers
naturally objected; but if Sunday
closing were enforced throughout
the province, this objection would
be removed and the dealer would
enjoy his day of rest like other
people, at ohurch or in the bosom of
his family. He felt confident tbat
if it were put to those ih the trade
it would be found that a largo majority would favor Sunday closing,
provided it were uniform throughout the country. He made a strong
and feeling appeal to hon. members
to meet the wants and expectations
of the country by passing a moderate measure like the present; and
after a year or two a further advance might be made.

THE HOYAL THROAT.
London, March 27.—The man of
cartillage just removed from the larynx
of the emperor was, it i. now learned,
found wholly'disconnected from that
part of the throat on which it grew,
and required no surgical operation to
enable the doctors to free it from ita
sepnration, as well as its appearance,
it is believed, that nature ia making a
curative effort entirely independent of
the physicians, whioh belief is
strengthened by the fact that a similar
voluntary expulsion is unknown to
physicians in their experience in the
treatment of cancerous diseases. The
circumstance ia also held to furnish incontrovertible eridenee of Dr. Mackenzie's persistent contention that the
disease is not cancer. A report recently put in circulation that the
Emperor is able to take only liquid
food, is untrue. He eats solid food
with ease and experiences no difficulty
whatever in drinking. He is much
thinner than when be went to San
Remo, but looks better than he ia
commonly represented as appearing.

Ottawa, March 28,—The government haa declined to interfere with the
prohibitory liquor law in tha northwest territories, beyond giving permission for licensing and brewing, aad

P. tt. This Is the price of the sur
tender of the monopoly clause!
Truly the construction of the great
national highway has been nn enormously expensive business from
first to Inst. It may be seriously
doubted if tho monopoly clause was
worth any such sum to the company.
That it had no logal right to monopoly in Britisli Columbia or .Manitoba, has been clearly demonstrated;
and tho presont or prospective trado
of the northwest during tho continuance of tho monopoly agreement
could not possibly be worth $14,-
000,000, But Sir John found himself in the unfortunate position in
whioh Grip represents him. Sir
George Stephen stands on one side
and Mr. Greenwny on the other,
eaoh with a pistol pointed ut his
head. Mr. Greenway demands the
abandonment of monopoly, or
threatens rebellion: Sir George demands that monopoly be maintained,
or his company will burst the government! We have already expressed the opinion that it would pay
Canada to give a good snug sum to
lift the monopoly; but $14,000,000!
It is n monstrous demand for the
surrender of such a privilege!
In discussing the proposed amendment to the school act the Colonist
seems to think that the high schools
ought to Ire continued ns free schools
at all hazards We distinctly differ
with our cotemporary. The public schools ought to be free, inasmuch as it is necessary that every
child should have an education such
as these schools supply. But the
high schools are intended for persons who propose to enter the professions—persons who intend to
make their living by means of education. It is not reasonable to expect that the state shall supply such
an education free. With us much
reason might it undertake to provide all the necessary appliances to
make lawyers or doctors or editors.
The Colonist has from the beginning
stood out for free high schools, and
seems willing to endorse almost any
change in the public school system
so long as its high school theories
remain undisturbed. It iB quite
proper for the government to aid to
.O-reasonaJblc extent such institutions
as are needed for higher education,
but no one can deny that its first
duty ia to provides- free common
school education for the masses. If
the government deems it necessary
to curtail its expenditures for education} the high school is certainly
where retrenchment ought to begin.
These might be supported wholly or
partly by the municipalities where
they are situated, and such fees
should be imposed as would materially reduce the cost of maintaining
them.   ■■ ■■ ■ ■-   ■	
Our' Church-st. cotemporary returns this morning to the proposed
extension of the O.P.R. from this
city to Vancouver, and gives his
readers half a column of the silliest
nonsense. Wo asked our cotemporary a week ago to mention one
substantial advantage' that Westminster would lose by the extension,
but on this point he is absolutely
dumb. If there had been any facts
in his possession which could be
nude, use of to support his contention; they would doubtless have been
brought forward, and we suspeot
there were none. Our cotemporary
seems to assume that the railway
company has no right to extend its
line, and that the people of Westminster will not permit it to do so.
Will he be good enough to quote the
act or agreement under which the
extension could be prevented! We
believe there is no such act, nnd we
believej further, that thero aro no
citizens, beyond the half-dozen who
croak with our cotemporary, who
wonld lift a finger to stop the extension if they could. Our cotemporary thinks the mere circumstance
of through passengers being canied
through the streets of the city will
afford them but a poor opportunity
of gaining an intelligent idea of tho
place. True enough; but would they
gain a better idea if they n/Jsw were
permitted to Bee it at all? The organ
finally intimates that if the road
were continued to "Vancouver the
subsidy for carrying mails between
this eity and Victoria by steamer
might be withdrawn. In support
of this he offers no argument, and
can offer none. The extension would
not make a particle of difference, or
lessen in any degree the need of a
river mail service. We have railway connection with Vancouver
now, and have had it for over a year,
and the only difference the extension
would make with that connection
would be to shorten it. Is our co-
temporary aware ofthe fact that although there, are two trains a day
running between the two cities,
these trains carry no mail? By
what process of reasoning, then,
does he find that the shortening of
the line might be followed by the
abandonment of the river mail service? But it is a waste of time to
fight men of straw. Our cotemporary. bat not been able to meet the
very reasonable proposal we made
to him, namely, to mention a single
substantial advantage that would be
lost to this city by the extension.
When he has dono that, we may
have eomrthing mow to lay.

The Bait of tha Sen-Sont nlilns About the
Waves—How the l>i*l .1 It Mcnaurod*
The sea Is tbo reservoir into which run
nil the rivers of tha vxpity. Jt is the
cisti-m which finally riitfhes ah the rain
tlmt falls, not only uprm its own surface.
but upim tho roofs oi our homes. All

'J his is upon tho supposition that three

depth of salt, nnd that the average deptu
ui Uio ocean is three cities.
At 11 depth of i limit  i\~M feet tho
ff**iiiiH!i-*lim* is uni   , vfli-vitiy Lut a

(joast of Norway lli" w:\Ur i.Leii heains

At litis depth waves aro not felt.

rising and falling moves un.
We measure waves by tlielr height
and by tho distance from cr 1st to crest.
In deep water this latter il suncu is
about fifteen times thu hVs^lit o. the
waves. In shallow water tiio proportion i.i lesSj and thu ma 13 11 etioppy

Tho force of the waves h i 1 p:oportion

strikes on iiell ro k wilh tlie force of
seventeen tons to eaeh siiuaro yard.

pri'H'Ure is reckono I at iiinro than a ton
to 'thu square inch -that is, more than
]J!JI times the pivsauro of the atmoa*
phere.
To get correct sounding in deep water
is (liilicult. A bliot wt'i^hinR thirty
pounds carries down the line. Through
this sinker a hole i.i bored, and through
tha holo is passed a rod of iron whieh
moves easily back and fnrth. In the
end of the bar a cup is dug ont, and tho
inside is coated with hud. Tbe bar is
made fast to tho line and a sling holds
the shot on.
When ih**! bar, which extends below the
shot, touches tbe bottom, the sl ng unhooks nud the shot ulitles 0T. The cup
iu the end of the bar holds some of the
sand, or whatever may be on the bottom,
and a cover shuts Over the cup to keep
the water from washing t.m sand out. In
this way we learn the chanucter of tho
deep sea bottom.
If will he seen nt once that we can
know the depression--; 0f the bottom of
thu ocean mory ensily aud more accurately than we enn learn the elevation of
the land. Asacon8j<|ueme we havo a
belter topographical map of much of
that surface than wo have of the conti-
nen Is.
Tlm depths of the sen presents somo
interesting considerations. If the Atlantic were lowered (ftti-i feet it would be
r-diu ed to hall its present width. If it
were lowered n littlo more than three
fifties there would he dry land all the
wtiv between Newfoundland and Ireland,
li ib j Mediterranean wero lowered t>60
feet, Africa would be jo.ncd to Italy and
three separate seas would remain.
The Coin und tlio llnll of Wa riled.   „
This is a clever trick when well done,
an I does not require the purchase of ex*
pensive apparatus, Thejuagieian requests some gentleman irffb , audience
to mark a quarter-dollar in ueh a way
that he would be sure to know it if he
should be fortunate enough ever to see
it agnin. This being done, the leud.-r is
requested to put the coin on a platter
which the magician holds out to him.
After receiving the money the masicr of
ceremonies walks back toward hiB table, -
jingling the quarter on tbe tray, which.
be sets ou a smnll tablo in pi un s:ght ot
the audience. Ue now returns with a
largo glass -au old-fashioned celery-goblet will do very nicely- which he desires
several people to examine. They of
course discover no false bottom, secret
springs, or any thing of that nature, and
return tho class to the magician, who requests the lender of tho quarter tu hold
it high above his head so that every one
may so it. Now returning to his table
the conductor of Iho experiment picks
up a roumL-gl-overed objeit, which
-■i. I II II of worsted when the
fl I Ift.ftorn oil'. This ball the
magiciau places in the glass, keeping the
end of tho wo sted in his own hand,
while he returns to the platfor.n. It is
now explained that the coin will be mads
to pass along tho worsted into tlie interior of the (all. The quarter, is .taken
from the plait r ahd dropped^into•small
box with which tho worsted is connected, 'ihe moment the coin js dropped
the magician begins to pull on the 1 ne.
nnd lie draws in the worste I hs tho ball
unwinds. When the bail dwindles to a
knot a clink is heard, and sum enough ,.
coin appears iu the goblet. Thia 10 a on
being examined by Uie lem!«r is det Inr-
e i to bathe original.quarter;marked by
him, A very prclly triek, iait not'.'
■*'    •   how to no it. '   *
We have described tht external tp*
penrance of tbe dta-cption; let us now
M> behind the sceti'B. Tbe first thing to
be nciouiplishod iB lo change the marked quarter for another. Thu is done as
tlie inugichm carelessly turns hli back
forn moment on returning to his table.
The hand which holds the platter contains a quarter. 1-y a little practice a
perso 1 can lear.i to tip the platter so that
tho marked quarter will slip down into
his hand and at (ho same time th* other
quarter is tossed onto the plate, tht
s >;md ofthe quarters as they jump up
and down on the platter deceives the
nu lience. Ito-'i is lite quarter put into the
built A small Cat tube of writ ng paper is
j>;Cp:'red beforehand and, the worsted
wound loosely about it. This makes a
l.at inun.l to carry the coin into tbe ball.
As the magician picks up the glass he
moves tho had out of tho way, during
which opt-t-alion tho marked Quarter is
Fiijiji d into tbo funnel and finds its way
into the center of Uie ball, The idea of
covering tho ball with white pep* is
this: When the magician pulls and picks
oil the covering he pulls out and throws
aw-iy thu p-ip-r tunnel, tbe soft meshes
of llie worst :il c'.n.*u) up the breach, and

"H Sawed My Life"
Is a eommon expression, often heard
from those who havo realized, by personal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. «I cannot say enough
fn praise of Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, but for its use, I
shonld long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I hod used various-cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A Iriend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that It
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicino cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life. —Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Seeond St., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
Ior over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicino. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tbe lungs,
for whieh I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—P. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province ot Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

The grablrd Mystery.
It i« said that one of the three Indians
—the youngest—awaiting trial in the
provincial gaol on a charge of being concerned in the Seabird murder, will never
live to stand his trial, as he is slowly but
surely fretting himself to death over the
awful crime with which he stands charged. It is also stated that the unfortunate man is fully aware of his approaching
death, and hails it with joy as a release
from all his troubles. In anticipation of
death he has made a confession of several
facts in connection with the murder,
which it is reported places the whole
details ot tho crime in a clearer light
than any of the evidence previously obtained,—-Colonist,
The False Alarm,
Shortly boforo S o'clock lust night an
alarm of fire was rung, and immediately
people fioeked from all parts of the city
towards the fire hall. Many who live in
tho suburbs and have business in the city
arrived in hot haste, only to find that the
whole thing wob a hoax and a scheme to
get the brigade out for a practice. While
the brigade was down near tho depot a
couple of practical jokers set firo to some
barrels in tho vacant lot opposite tlie
theatre, and then rung a second alarm.
This practice may be a very good tiling
for the brigade, but in a city liko Westminster, wliere a fire is greatly to be
dreaded, it is scarcely fair to unnecessarily alarm people by ringing falsa alarms
unexpectedly. If theso practices are to
be continued they should take place before business men havo gone to their
homes, nud at an earlier hour in the
evening. _
The Fori Huney Concert.
The entertainment given last evening at Port Haney in aid of tho building fund of the now Presbyterian
ohurch, which is just completed, wab a
very successful affair. The church is a
very neut edifice, 20x40 feet, and built
of brick at a cost uf 91700. It is situated a few hundrr-d feet back from tho
river at a distance of 300 yards west of
tlie steamboat landing. Immediately
after tho arrival of the . Btr. Adelaide
from Westminstor tho party on board
proceeded to Mr. Armstrong's residence whero a magnificent spread was
prepared for them by tho ladies of the
congregation. Aftor doing justice to
the many good thing-) set before them,
tho whole compuny adjourned to tho
church, which was filled to its utmost
capacity. A programme of selections
of vocal musio was then made up by
the members of tho Westminster St.
Andrew's church choir. The Rev.
Mr. Tait, who acted as chairman,road
letters from the Rev. Thos. Scouler
and the Hon. John Rubson, apologizing for their absence, Enclosed in
the Hon. Mr. Ilobsun's letter was a
cheque for $25, as a donation to the
building fund of the ohurch. The
Rev. Mr. Tait then read the first fuur
verses of the 100th Psalm, whioh was
sung by the whole audience, and after
prayer by the Rov, Mr, Hemlaw, of
Maple fudge, tho choir gavo a part
song "Robin Adair." A solo by Mrs.
Lyal, "The Bettor Land," was rendered in a very pleasing style, and showed
her to be a lady uf rare musical cultivation and talent. "The Old Brigade,"
a solo by Mr. H. Wilson, was woll re-
coived, ufter which the Rev. Mr. Patterson, of Chilliwhack, delivered a very
sblo address, interspersed with amusing anecdotes. A Scotch song, "The
Auld Hooso," by Miss McKcon, wns
enthusiastically encored. Mr. Ogle
then sung "Wings" in a very creditable manner, after which the audience
was favored with a quintette, "The
Peasants Wedding March," by Mrs.
Grant, Mrs. McKenzie, Miss McDongall, and Messrs. Ogle ond Wilson. A
sacred solo, "Not Ashamed uf Christ,"
was given by J. S. Clute,Jr.,with good
effect. The Rev. Mr. Hemlaw g«v«
an address and was followed by a (rio,
"Shepherds T6)l Me," by Messrs.
Lyal, Ogle and Wilson.   Tno audience
was then treated to a Scotch song,
"Within a Mile o' Kdinboro' Toun,"
by Miss Rankin, which received well
merited applause, nud was followed by
another Scotch Song,"Mary uf Argyle,"
by Mr. Lyal with equal effect on tho
appreciative audience. Miss Cluto accompanied the ringers on the organ
and performed that task with excellent
precision and effect. The audience
thon passed a vote of thanks to the
Westminstor choir for the valuablo assistance rendered by that body. Tho
Doxology was then sung and the gathering dispersed, the Port Haney people
tu their homes and the Westminster-
ites to tho steamer, all highly delighted
with the results of tho beneficial intercourse of thu owning. The Adelaide arrived in this city about 1:30
o'clock this morning. Tho net pro-
coeds of the concert will add abuut $100
to the building fund.

Late Despatches.
NEW PAUNCH  ARMY BUL.
Paris, Mar. 25.—The senate army
commission, presided over by M. de
Freycinet, has prepared u new recruiting bill. The bill subjects all
citizens alike to serve for 25 years, but
provides for various partial exemptions,
in tho caso of students and others, imposing, however, taxes upon persons
thus exempted. These taxes, it Is
calculated, will result in a revenue of
25,000,000.francs yearly. b_ The.bill also provides that all suns of parents
born in Franco are liable to service,
whether naturalized or not.
THE EASTERN QUESTION.
Sofia, March. 25 —Tho council of
ministers 1ms decided not to reply to
the Porie'a dispatch,, declaring Princo
Ferdinand's position illegal. Munitions are being forwarded to the troops
on tho frontier. Princess Clementine,
the mother of Prince Ferdinand, will
leave Sofia to-morrow.
Bucharest, Mar. 25.— In the chamber of deputies to-day Prime Minister
Bratiano denied that tho government
desired to found a Roumania-Bulgarian
empire. Ho also refuted the accusation that tho country was, being Germanized. Uoumainu, ho said; was developing her defensive resources in order to be in a position to safely guard
her interests.'   *

distance this side of Sparta tiiuru wis
a flock of prairie thiekenB ou the
track. Thoy flew up, but one nf tUni
did not get out of the way nud wm
struck by the ongino and pitched into
tho air. It fell on the bell cord back
of the cab and rang the bell. The engineer did nut know the cmsti of it
and brought thu train to n s-aiidatill as
soun as tho air-brakes would do it.
The dead bird lying on the platform
of the forward mail car told tho story,
A JMNflKRM'H MOVEMENT,
Paris, Mar. 25.---A manifesto uf the
extreme left says: "Votes given for a
general who refuted tn lay down his
sword would contribute it veritable
plebiscite, signifying tlio abdication of
a freo people. The intrusion of military leaders into politics not only mffn-
aci's nur freo institution and disarms
our forces by dividing them in the presence of tho enomy, but it has always
resulted in tho supprotsiou of uur
rights and been punished with dofeat.
We, therefore, implore good citizen:* to
abstain from such a dnngorous movement."
FISHERMEN FOR B. O.
London, Mar. 27.—The severe depression of the fishing industry is causing the spread of the emigration movement among tho fishermen of the coast
of Scotland. Sevoral pioneers have
just left Moray Firth for Halifax, As
the certain prospects for the settlement of Nova Scotia are not thought
favorable, tho pioneers intend to visit
British Columbia. A party of highly
respectable Scotch farmers also left
Glasgow for the Commercial Colonisation companies' colony at Langunburg,
N. W. T. Several parties of selected
emigrants are leaving thia week.
