There is an old custom prevailing
among the Tyrolese regarding proposals of marriage The first time a young
mini pays a visit as avowed lover be
brings with him a bottle of wiue, of
which he pours out a glass aud presents it to the object of his desires.
If she accepts it the whole affair ia
settled. Very often tbe girl has uot yet
made up ber mind, and then she will
take refuge In excuses so as not to
drink the wine and yet not refuse it
point blank, for that Is considered a
gross insult, proving that she has beeu
merely trifling with the affections of
her lover.
She will, for instance*, maintain that
tbe wiue "looks sour" or ffcnt wine disagrees with her or that she ls afraid of
getting tipsy or that the priest bas forbidden her to take any-ln fact, she
makes use of any subterfuge that presents itself at that moment.
Tlie purport of these excuses ls that
she has not come to a decision and that
tbe wine offering is premature.
This strange custom, dating very far
buck���according to one -.-count, It was
known ns early as the ninth century���
is culled "bringing the wine" and is
synonymous witb the act of proposing.
Shy lovers, loath to make sure of
their ease beforehand, And it a very
happy Institution. Not u word need be
spoken, and the girl is spared the painful "No" of civilization.
If auy nf tbe wine is spilled or the
glass or bottle broken it is considered
a most unhappy omen���in fact, there is
a peasant's saying for nn unhappy
marriage, "Tbey have spilled the wiue
between them."

SATURDAY,  NOV. 24.  1906.
The Columbian of yesterday has a
'well defined" rumor thai John Oliver.
M.P.P., will not be a candidate for
Delta, and thai R. .Iar line, nominated
1. Lil era! candidate tor Dewdney, will
be withdrawn in order to give Mr. Olive.' a chance there. There is not, of
course, a shadow of a shade of foundation for this rumor, and it would be
Interesting to know which of the party
of sensitive honor and short memories
evolved ii from his inner consciousness.
Here are a couple of pertinent para
graphs from the Ottawa Free Press:
���Detectives are after the scalp cf
Hou. Robert Rogers, the erratic Manitoba politician, because he refused to
pay them for services rendered during
the recent election. The fact that
there was no crooked work on the
pari of Hon. Mr. Rogers' opponents is
no reflection upon their astuteness..
Even the laborer for the professional
politician is worthy of bis hire."
"Premier McBride. who has return- j
ed to British Columbia, declares he at-,
tended the conference of provincial
premiers at Ottawa to represent the,
_ rights of the people of bis Province, ]
and not in any political capacity ai all.
The danger is that this fact may he
forgotten, nol by Mr. McBrid's opponents, but by his friends and supporters, when election time comes around."
(Continued from Page One.)
ticularlj  with the queatiop of removing the dn- Ige 'ni Victoria.
!���'. T. c. I.ever, also ii reporter on
the Dailj News, said thai he recognized Mr, Brown as the editor, an I
: lie reporters took all i beir orders from
him. He did not know who wrote the
editorial complaine I of, bul he did n il
write it. Mr, Brown wrote some of
the editorials, and he was the final
authority as to what should and whal
should nol go into ibe pa. er.
Cross-examined by Mr. Howay, Mr.
Lever said thai a considerable amounl
of copy was contributed by outsiders,
and he had known editorials to come
in from outside sources. The outside
matter comes in at irregular Intervals.
This wiis the last witness called by
the prosecution, and Mr. Howay siat-
e I    thai   they   did   not   propose   tO   Call
any witnesses.   In fact, he did not see
Why   they  should,   as  the  case  was  of
the flimsies!  character,    To see am-
thing In the case, one would need S.'iai
Waller's  double    million    magnifying
via. -es.
Mr, Whiteside retorle I  thai  he did
noi   expect     that   his    learned    friend
would see anything In it. aud Immediately  after   this,   the  couri   adjourned
iiniij 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
Promptly al   " o'clock.  Mr.  Howay
commenced his s] h fm the defence.
lie contended that, to be Indictable,
a libel must he acl billable, and this
wa.s noi so in ibe presenl case. After
quoting ai length a number of authorities, Mr, Howay said ihai when a
man  wenl inlo public affairs, he musi
of. no evidence that be published if,
and no evidence that he delivered it 10
anyone. The next point dealt witii
was the question of facts. There was
a great deal of inconsistency and in
coherency in ibe case. Two witnesses
produced by 'he prosecution, Messrs.
Taylor and Luce, differed materially
in their evidence. Mr. Taylor sum"
thai the article written by him for the
Columbian was correct, while Mr.
Luce was e.pi,iii) i ������! tain that the ri
l,ort api '��� iring In the Dallj New.- ,\ is
accurate as regards the disputed
point, ("necked side by side, the reports differed with reference to the
words "unwritten law." Th��'jftosecu-
tlon should have product d the speakei
of the words in question, an I place 1
hlm on the witness stan 1. so thai li
mighl have repeated his statement
The prosecutor knew that there was
a  difference  in  the  two articles,   and
In connection  with  the statement   in-
volved in the case.   He contended thai
the libel fell (la;. He submitted that
the statement made by Mr. Taylor ha 1
to be considered and carefully weigh
ed In view of the fact that he altered
the article and re-wrote it after he
had read the article which appeared
in the Daily Xews. After again quoting authorities at some length, Mr.
Howay  resumed his  seat.
Mr.  Whiteside   then   took  tbe   floor,
saying ihat   they   were   noi   ihere   to
discuss the statement made in the reports of the  two  papers,  but   to discuss the editorial complained of, and
they were not there to decide whether
Mr. Taylor or  Mr.  Luce was correct.
���He   thought    the    facts    broughl    out
clearly   proved   that   Mr.   Brown   was
responsible   for   all   that    appeared   in
Ibe   paper,   as be edited   all   the  copy
and  sent it  down lo the printer.    Mr.
Johnstone   bud    proved    publicity   by
swearing   that   he  sei    the  article   in
type,   and   that    Mr.    Taylor   got   the
paper   in   ihe   usual   way.   had   been
'clearly established.    After again  reading t.he article complained of, counsel
staled  that  be considered that it  contained  a  wilful, deliberate  falsehood.
Such a statemenl was calculated to in
jure   Mr.  Taylor  in   his  business,  an 1
lo provoke him to commil a breach   il
ihe   peace.     After    citing    precedents
and   having  another   legal   argument,
with opposing counsel, Mr. Whltesid 1
lel'i ihe case in :he hands of tiie magistrate.
His worship reserved his decision
until Tuesday morning at in o'cIock,
after the usual police couri proceedings   will  have   been   disposed  of.
