I Acauariuin,  New Westminster, April 7, ��������� Surprising and somewhat, startling was  the action taken by the board of  license commissioners at their meeting  held  in  the city hall.  It  was expected    that    thc     bo.ir.i  would deal  with  the cases  of   hotel  i roprietors  who  had* been   c*on\ict"d  i.efoie    the    jo'ice     magistrate     on  charges  of celling liquor to    niino*s.  .-one belieied  that it  wns the intention of  the  board   to canuil  the   licenses held by  the offenders,    or    at  least   to  order  a suspension    of   the  liccnos held  by   the offenders, or at  hast  to  order  a siisj.c-ision   of     the  licenses for a short period,  but none  seemedto  be prepaid!  for what   had  keen  framed  up  i"  their  minds of  a  tnajonty of the board.  -   ConsG.Nciitly-, when the   nevs 'was  spread   about   tliat   tlie   board    had  , assod     a resolution    recommending  iliat the City Council amend the    liquor, license hv-law so  as  to  double  the   lionise   fee  for hotels  and     add  pIOO to  that  for sa!o< ns   there   was  something of a  stir among- those di-  lectly affected. * c-  A rcsol ition was in trod iced . by  C'oinniissicncr Smith, seconded by  Commissioner rl hurnhiirg to increase  the licer.se of hotels fiom $.200 jer  annum to $100 |>er annum, and of  suloons from. $400 to $500, the fee  for wholesale houses remaining as  lM>fore, $50.  Enquiry at the treasurer's office at  lhe city hall revealed the fact that  i ftcen li'iuor licenses are now in ef-  l).*ct in the city of New Westminster  of which thirteen are hotel licenses,  and  t'.vo  are saloon- licenses.  The h.jtel licenses being doubled,  nt an increase of $101, will .give an  increase of $2,600 per annum, and  the s.\loon licenses .increased $100  each will increase the additional revenue to tiie city to the extent of  $2,800. Thus it will be seen that  the j roposition is a paying one to  the city, although the burden will  Lear rather heavy on the hotelmen.   o������������������   Vancouver,   April  7.���������Dr.   Undeihill  BRF'KS Jill  AND MEETS  HIS DEATH  TELEPHONE NUMBERS  FOR FIRE HALL  BALLOON ASCENSION  TO BE HELD IN CITY  Coiicomilly,   Apiil   7.���������In  an  endea-  vcr to escape the sheriff's posse", Archie Griffin, charged-'with horse steal  ing,   fell from   the hit'li cliff at    McLaughlin's  canyon  this  morning   ami  broke     his     n-;ck.
