P's:  On   Friday   afternoon,    Andrew  Neilson called at the Bellevue, Hp-  tel and secured for himself and his  companions', three bottles of whis- ,  key and two bottles of beer from,  the'bartender,  James Bruce.     He  was   waylaid   by  Constable ,Gammon before  leaving the town and  relieved of the liquor,   He was also, brought back as the quarantine  waa still  on Mission City.'    He re  nWined over night, and before he,  oft in  the morning F. -Fabry, 'the  manager of   the hotel, gave Neil-  son,,a similar amount of liquor lo  what he  received the day 'before,  as   a   present.   Before   leaving the  own he was again taken in charge  by Constable  Gammon and  the.li-  Luor taken from him.  - On Saturday  afternoon the case  was tried  in the .police .court and  the fines imposed totalled $100 and  costs,   amounting   altogether      to  ���������$410.  James Bruce the bartender  was  v������5ned $100 and costs.  '---F. Fabry'- was fined a. similar a.  mount.  II. Windehank, the proprietor  of the hotel was fined $100 on each  count, although, he was not present either times when 'the liquor  was ..passed  over. the. bar.  Colin Campbell' who had charge  of the case for the crown, explained that not more-than one bottle'  should be given at pne time to .one  man. If a man bought ������ bottle  went out and then came back for  another shortly after, and received another bottle and paid for  it, the buying of the two bottles  was looked upon, under the act as  :ie   transaction.*  Thefoliowing  is   the  clause .under which the fines were imposed,  lhe   Superintendent   ul      Provincial Police may, subject to the  provisions  of   this  act,   issue   and  .rouew and permit to be assigned,  transferred hotel licenses "empowering  the   license   to  import ��������� and  to vend liquor by retail in quantities  not  exceeding one      Imperial  .tuart in any one act of vending to  any one person in any hotel premises complying with the provisions  of this Act with respect to an hotel,   and   specified  and   described  in the license.  The following is the one under  which Mr. Windebank was fined  "Every offence against the provisions of this act committed by  the employee, servant, agent, or  workman of any person holding  any license for the sale of liquor  shall be deemed to be the offence  of, and any such person holding  such licence shall be answerabie  for and shall be .punished for such  offence; Provided that nothing  herein shall absolve the actual offender from guilt and punishment;  but he shall be punished also/-'  .

We!!, don't  you think Canada would have  something to say about that. It  is easy to annex ia country like  Canada, when fading a lot of  good fellows, and you want to  tickle their fancy; but it is a  case of silvery speech being \ ery  much mightier than the sword  wants   to   .be.  And now they call 'Fielding's trip  to Washington, "the fatal journey  to Washington'', but the discussion  of Canada's natural'.sources ha3  been ;a grand advertisement 'to  us. L.aurier may not. have been  asleep, after all. Did you ever  notice .that- merry twinkle ,of hiY  ���������eye.  cord  for  painting New   V'ork  red  during the midnight hours.

Down in Ohio a jury deeded  '.hat '.'a man's wife had no moral  rights to-take money from her nub-  band's trousers pockets, .but that  she could not be -punished under  the law."'  Here.is  one of the results  that  follow in the train of yelling   .mall  pox''   when   it  might, possibly   be  known by some other name;  ' "Just  sbeeause   there   are   a few  isolated cases of small-pox in some  filthy quarters  of tho coast.

We like that "filthy quarters"  but then the east .wind" that is  aaid to have brought us .the disease may have come all the way  from  Revelstoke.  The. reciprocity- discussions show  that a man's pockets are, more  important than his politics, ���������  If the natural resources of Canada are so great and so much to be  des'red,, why not protect -.ht-ni for  the, people of Canada.

It was ibelieved that  with the closing of the ischool several days ago, and with the pupils remaining at their individual  homes, they would quickly recover  from the effects, hut such is not  the  case.  The sneezing fest in the school  lasted over two weeks, and. since  the girls have been, at .their homes  the sneezing .has continued in the  cases, oi several- until their condition is s'eriou.. One of the girls  is under the.doctor's care\ and her  condilionis alarming. Her sneezing, apeels last., an hour or more  with as much time intervening between . each attack. She sneezes  from, twenty to thirty times a  minute.. Every relief so far extended   is   on y  temporary.  The condition of many other  girls is equally bad, and they have  considerable in weight. . There is  difference of opinion as to whether  their ailment is due to nervousness  or external causes.  The doctors are contemplating  compulsory  vaccination.  "I suppose Eileen," she remarked  to the new girl, with feigned in-  d'.'fferance, "that you overheard  my husband and me conversing rather earnestly this morning. I  hope, however, that you did not  th:nk anything unusual was going, on?"  "Niyer a bit, mum.
