Sacramento, Cal,, May 19.���California's alien-land bill became the law
of the state today. Against the protests of Japan and the representations
!of President Wilson and his personal
i envoy, Secretary Ilryan, Governor
; Johnson signed the bill and 90 days

Uure. which wlll be Aug. 10, the act
bi comes operative.
While the governor was signing the
bill the steamship Korea, bearing two
distinguished Japanese, one a former

Trlp!-> Opposition.
Within California the act has encountered hoetility. which may delay
its actuality until November, 11*14.
As an expression of thl3 opposition.

committee, has issued an invitation to

Dear Sirs,���I beg to acknowledge
receipt of your letter of Oth Inst, In
reference to the new liquor license by -
law for the city ol New Westminster.
As the Muuiclp.ll act was amended
in 1911 so that saloon licenses would
be abolished on Jan. 15, 1914, it
strikes me that this legislation applies
to New Westminster, as well as to
other parts of the province und that
your bylaw of 1889 providing that hotels must have, at least, 12 bedrooms,
must give way to the change made in
the law (d 1911, under section 340 of
the Municipal act and I think the
proper course for the licensing board
in New Westminster would be to:
amend their present liquor bylaw, so
as to bring it into conformity wiib
sictlon 340 of the Municipal Act.
Yours, etc.,
The    communication   wub  received

Alderman Bryson said he understood
the city solicitor and Mr. Whiteside
for the Licensed Victuallers' association, were to submit the intorpretatiori
of the law to another eminent lawyer

raised the licensing fees.
Acting Mayor Kellington���I suggested that the solicitors put it to the
attorney general what his Interpretation was. but they did not think he
would give it. They seem, however,
to have appealed to him with this result. We have a special meeting ou

We cannot do otherwise than commend the policy being pursued by the Dominion government in respect to the
harbors of the Pacific coast, and, at the same time, we congratulate our member upon the success that has attended
those efforts he has for so long untiringly made in the interests of the Fraser river.
This progressive policy on the part of Ottawa is in
line with the announcement made by Hon. George H. Perky last week that a transfer elevator would be built upon
the Pacific coast in time for the opening of the Panama
canal. The location of this elevator is a matter upon which
the Grain Commissioners have to date made no announcement, but as far as trustworthy information can be obtained from Ottawa the Fraser river is most favored.
A government grain elevator will be a great incentive
to private interests to locate upon the Fraser river and
traffic which will develop by reason of grain vessels plying to and from British Columbia will be a boon to every
port upon the coast.
Traffic is bound to come in ever increasing volume
to the Canadian ports upon the Pacific and it is therefore
easily to he seen that preparations must be made to handle
it The city of New Westminster has made a good start,
and the Dominion government is showing itself to be most
desirous of assisting in developing both traffic and facilities for handling traffic upon the coast.

Introduced in the liritish parliament.
Incidentally, it was on Mill's birlh-
day. May 21, 186", that this measure
came to a vote, and was negatived by
198 against. 73. The great pbilosopher
took a prominent part In the organization, in 1868, or Hie National Society

in a championship battle at San Francisco or Los Angeles, wlll be determined Wednesday night. It Is as definitely settled as mattera pugilistic can
Ue, tbat the bout will occur on Independence day, but the decision as to
the scene of the encounter rests with
llin local promoter and Joe Levy,
manager ol the Mexican fighter.
The San Francisco promoter whose
offer for ihe match was accepted by
Hilly Nolan, I'ltchie'B manager, arrived here this morning and was in
consultation nearly all day with McCarey and both held occasional conferences with Levy.
Shortly before the promoters arrived, they readied an agreement
whereby the promoter will be notified
Wednesday night whether McCarey
would relinquish his rights to Itlvers'
services on the big holiday date.
Manager Levy long ago advised McCarey that his man would meet any
opponent selected by McCarey for
that  day  at  the  Vernon arena.

What constitutes a prize fight ? This
old question was debated by nhe
members of the Burnaby council last
evening when an application for the
building of an arena and a permit to
hold boxing contests in the municipality came from Frank B. Ennls, a
New Westminster promoter.
There were the pros and cons tc
the question to be sure, but the ayes

to register a kick when a motion
was paaaed allowing the arena to b<

Ottawa, May 19 -Though the actual number of trade dlBputeB in existence during April was greater than
the preceding month and exceeded by
12 that of the corresponding inonth of
last year, the number of working days
loBt to employees thereby was not as
great as during April, 1912. The Industries most affected by disputes In
April, according to the Labor dazette,
were building, mining and clothing
tradeB. The disputes of metalliferous
miners in British Columbia, previously begun, continued, as did alao the
strike of the gold miners at Porcupine. The most serious disputes In
the building trades involved painters
at Wlnlpeg and miscellaneous employees at Nelson, B.C. In the cloth-
Ing trades more than 2000 garment '<������
workers at Hamilton were thrown out
of work by a dispute which lasted
about two weeks. Business conditions
were unatrected In Montreal and
Toronto by short strikes or teamsters.
Although more than 20 new dlBputes
occurred during April, a solution was
soon reached, the majority of the disputes being called to enforce demands
for increase In wages.

these views on the revolution which!

"Colombia may say today, that
this revolution was due to American
protection.    This  Is  true  if  by   pro-1
I taction   is   understood     solidarity   in,
justice to and in defence of legitimate;
Interests.   But it did not arise trom
a    plot    hatched    by    the    American
authorities.      It    developed    through.;
I parallel movements, working at two;
distinct places toward the snme end.
���the completion ol the canal.
"From the moment of the first |
revolutionary     outbreak      President*
' Ror-evelt was careful to avoid any-
thing that might, resemble  unworthy
| collusion. Colombia may brandish
her rights of title over the Isthmus,
but her case was that of Shylock
Olatmlhg a pound of flesh. Shylock's
rights     were     unquestionable,  but   it j
; was impossible for him to eupport his j
claim.   It    is   the   same   thing   with'
i Colombia's title to Panama."
Under   the     most   favorable   con- \
dltionB, says the writer, the lock canal

"Third, because of the danger that

It is known that when a call tor
volunteers was made in 18<i2 she presented herself at a recruiting station
Ht Belvhlere, 111., on August 6 and was
duly accepted and enlisted as a member of Company tl, 96tb Illinois Infantry, under command of Dr. E. N. Bush.
Bush died in battle two years later.
She  saw  real  action.    She partid-
ing tltir parents were unable to witness the scene.
They were in it quandary util the
president of the Pioneer company offered the suggestion, "Why don't you
have a motion picture made and send
the films to Salt Luke?" That solved
the problem and accordingly arrangements were made for the young lady
to come to Denver and marry Mr

was old and in want, and as there w-as

London, May 19 -Many years ago
a branch of Ixird Muncaster's family
emigrated to the United States, and
Lord and Lady Muncaster, who have
just celebrated their golden wedding,
are anxious to trace the descendants
of the American branch.
The family name is Pennington
and ir there are any Penningtons in
America who thing they belong to the
family, they may communicate with
Lord Muncaster at Muncaster castle,
Cumberland, it is just possible that
an American Pennington might place
a claim later on the title, as Lord
Muncaster has no children, and his
hrother, tho Hon. Joseph Alan Pennington, who is the heir, ls also childless.
The title will, therefore, become extinct unless an unexpected claimant
Lord Muncaster was born on Christmas duy, 1X44. He took part tn the
Crimean war. In the early days of
their married Iif.. Lord anil Lady
Muncaster had a thrilling adventure in
Qreece. where tliey were captured by
brigands. Tiny were carried into the
mountains and the brigands demand -
id  a ransom of   ��30,000.
Lady Muncaster and the other women ol the parly were released, imd it
roll to the lot or Frederick Vyner, a
brother or Lady Sipon, to arrange Tor
the ransom, but as Lord Muncaster
was married, It was agreed that he
should go to Athens on the quest ror
During Lord Muncaster's absence the
little party or men. including Vyner,
were murdered in cold hood.
At Muncaster castle there is preserved a glasB bowl given to nn ancestor by Henry VI. It Is called "The
Luck or Muncaster," and there is a
legend that while It remains unbroken
the family will never want for a mule
heir, so perhaps some American will
help  keep  the  howl   intact.

Kamloops, 1$. C, May 19 The grand
liury here on Saturday made their pre-
sentment to chief Justice Hunter and
, was complimented by his lordship upon the report, whicb he said was particularly useful and valuable The presentment was as follows:
"Wo must express regret at the
number of serloiiB cases brought be-
; fore you during the present assizes.
We realize that the district is a large
one and is rapidly developing so that
the rorces of law are continuously at
a loss to keep pace with this growth
and to keep under control the unde-
slrable element which lags upon the
heels of the pioneer.
A large amount of crime dealt with
by the authorities has the the liquor
traffic with the Indians as the prime
| mover. It can not be too strongly
; urged that the Indian act should be
; amended to give magistrates greater
I powers In punishing cases of supplying
Intoxicants to Indians,
The   sentences   allowed   under   llie
law are entirely Inadequate to operate
i as a deterrent to the class of men
who engage in the supplying of liquor
to Indians, and we are or the opinion
that   It   magistrates   were   empowered
to sentence the lash In addition   to
heavier lines and jail sentences il
would tend to greatly decrease this
clasa or crime.
We  would   also  nsk  your   lordship
ito lay before the authorities the hardship Inflicted upon the city by the re-
' lease  of  prisoners  without  means  to
pay their fares to their homes or the
1 places where Ihey work.
We are of the opinion that the government should  provide all  prisoners
]released at  Kamloops, tickets covering transportation to that  part of ths
!district where the arrest took place
This Is especially desired  In  the ease
i of Indian women discharged from the
| jail, for reasons lhat are obvious.
We have to deplore the frequent use
! of   llrearms  by  a  certain  element  In

too strongly the rigid enforcement of
