At the meeting of the board of license  commissioners held this afternoon a  resolution was moved by police magistrate Crease and seconded by chairman  Neelands, renewing all the saloon and  hotel licenses which expire tomorrow.  The question of the granting of the  saloon license to Abe Johnson for I he  premises on Baker street was the first  matter taken up.  Mayor Neelands asked the clerk of the  board to read the minutes of the last  meeting, the clerk accordingly read the  minutes of the special meeting of the commissioners held on Dec. 27th, at which the  resolutions passed at the previous meeting  on December 1-lth, dealing with the transfer of Mrs". Maletfce's license to Abe  Johnson were rescinded.  When the minutes had been read chairman Neelands moved that the minutes of  the special meeting so far as they dealt  with the minutes and resolutions of the  meeting of December Mth be rescinded  and that the minutes and resolutions of  the meeting of December 1-Ith be restored  as they were originally.  Police'magistrate-Crease said that he  supported the Johnson application when  it came before the board in the first instance, and that he had taken no -part in  the rescinding of the resolutions of December 1-lth. He said he won Id support the  motion of the chair that the resolutions  rescinded on Dec. 27th be restored.  Commissioner Turner asked what efl'ect  the passing of the resolution made by the  chairman would have.  Mayor Neeland replied that Johnson  had been -promised a license.  .,.." Commissioner Turner���In moving the  resolution to rescind that part of the  minutes of the previous meeting dealing  with the transfer of the license, I was  acting under the highest legal advice I  could get, and this advice was to the  ,"��� ^'effect thatthe grantiu^of-'bthe^,'t.ran^fer-pJ'-^  �����V��"��s;a"me*.pet'iti'on^^^  --.��� sCH*$fo'.:qFVnTj^  ""~Tsa3r\that"'i^  .��;fJi;e;.attolu'ey"���,gen!er,aljn:t��ild n*6hat.,*lle^"lias/  '' ^i^en;fjjg^ii5i:iViuo]J M^tfe fitect^a^tjJe, 'I  hotel license, and u...mneeted with the  transfer of the saloon  license.    He contended   that the only application   for a  license  which  was regularly  before  the  board was that of U. K, Lemon.  _ Commissioner Turner said that  he considered   I liar, the   Lemon application was  not before the board,    lie said that when  the time came he would oppose Lemon or  any   one   else   securing  a   license.       He  would oppose the contemplated   transfer  because   it  was  not   in  the  interests of  the     public   and   secondly    because   it  was. in the opinion of the attorney-general, illegal,    lie said  that  he could  not  .understand Mr..Crease saying one thing  as   a   police   magistrate and an   entirely  different   thing  as a  commissioner.,   He  had   been   informed    by   the  deputy-attorney-general that the license, if granted to Johnson under under   the   present  circumstances, would   be   clearly   illegal  and    of   no   effect/that   Johnson, if he  sold liquor under it, would be liable for  selling liquor without a  license.   If  the  members  of  the  board  wanted  to   put  Mr. Johsnon in that position they should  support the resolution of the  chairman.  Magistrate Crease said  that   while  he  was opposed   to  grauting   a   license on  Baker street, yet it seemed  to him  that  there werespecial circumstances connected  with the case which made itonly just and  fair that Johnson should get the license.  Commissioner' Turner said that he objected to.going into the merits of the case  at all.:   The question for the board to decide   was. whether    the    contemplated  action of the board was,legal or not.  After some further talk the chairman  put the motion. Magistrate, and the  chairman voted aye and commissioner  Turner nay, and so the minutes of the  meeting of December Mth were restored.  The usual resolution reviewing the  existing business was then passed Mrs.  Malette being entered as holding an hotel  license and Abe Johnson as the holder of  asaloon license. Commissioner Turner was  asked to second this resolution but declined..  ���The application of R. E. Lemon was  then disposed of.

Nothing interferes so much with a working man's   prosperity as  what is mildly  called "unsteadiness."    Unsteady  workmen  are  their own   worst, enemies.    On  their " idle days " they doubly squander  their means, losing what they might earn  on those days, and spending what they  have earned on other days.    Very oftc i  when they go back  to work  they are in  such a condition as to be unfit for it, and  so, if they are paid according to what they  do, they are losers again.   The wives and  families of such   men   have   a   sad   life.  PoA'erty is always  with  them,  and they  have often to endure ill-usage also.   The.  employers, too, have to suffer for the unsteadiness of  workmen.    Work is interrupted,  hindered   and  delayed, through  the absence of men who ought to be carrying it on,aud when they return after their  ' spree," the work is not done as quickly  or as well as it ought to be done.   In some  of the great works in the old country and  the United States, this unsteadiness is a  serious hindrance.    The very uncertainty  of the preseuce of the workers throws affairs out of gear.   Employers have to calculate and  try to strike an  average of  probable absenteeism when they are considering  how.much, work   they  can  get  done in a given time.    If suflicieut allowance be  not made,   contracts cannot be  executed up to time.   It is only a section  of the workmen, and that section happily  a   diminishing   minority,    who   are   unsteady;    but   they   are   still    numerous  enough to be a ..source of trouble and of  harm  at the  work  where they are employed.    We are not at all sure thatthe  system of fortnightly pay does not tend  to   produce   unsteadiness..    It  has   been  said   that  if  the "workmen   'were   paid  ofteher they would  be idle oftener: but I  that, we think, is a  mistake.   If pay-day  be a ''great day," coming comparatively  ��^seJdomB;aud"btungjn^;wIth?it a* lar^e.��sum,���  "��ftlIV��ap:t��toibe  SUGGESTIONS   FROM   ENGLAND  mm  ^fc  Morning Papers Insist on  Americans Keeping  the Islands.  -London, Jan. !���!.���Most of the morning  papers comment today upon the situation  in the Philippines, drawing the inference  that senator  Foraker's   remarks   in   the  senate chamber yesterday were made by  him as the spokesman  of the president,  and expressing disappointment and their  disapproval of a possible relinquishment  of the I'hillippines by the  United States.  The Times says that thesenatorappears  to leave the subject in an  unpleasantly!  ambiguous state.   It is in the Phillipines  that the new system of government would  be brought to a test,  and  no resolutions  passed in the senate can solve the problem.   The claims of the insurgents to national recognition can hardly hold water,  but there is no power in the world  that  would be so much embarrassed by the  raising of a question  of this sort as the  United States.  "To announce that the occupation of  the Philippines is only temporary would  be scarcely prudent. Although some precedents are furnished in our own policy  during the last 20 years, the results are  unsatisfactory. All the governments of  the continent have acquiesced, willingly  or' unwillingly, in the fact that the  islands, with all advantages and responsibilities, are American acquisitions, and  they are bound to hold aloof except in  the conceivable event of the failure of the  American government."  The Standard says: "It is a little startling to find the liberators of Cuba engaged  in suppressing a youthful republic which  claims the sacred right of self-government.  Yet to withdraw would create another  Cuba off the coast of Asia, for which naval  nations would scrambled'  The Daily Chronicle says: "We believe  that, so soon as can safely, be doue, the  United States will give the Filipinos  virtual home rule under responsible government.''     <: -  r 're  covers, and  place the  powder in the inside one, having first placed dry sawdust  or iufusorial earth, or line dry sand in i he  bottom of it, to absorb any oil  from the  cartridges.   This should  never be placed  on the fire, but filled with hot water and  protected so as to retain the heat as long  as possible, and to avoid having to empty  and refill it too often.   The habit of thawing powder in a sack on top of a toiler or in  a blacksmith shop or mine office, is a custom which is fruitful of accidents  to life  and  a great cause of fire.   Placing  the  powder iu hot water or in steam is equally dangerous, as it is sure to cause the oil  to exude.   Many of the powder companies  sell proper, thawing boxes or kettles made  of zinc, and recommend their use  to consumers, so that there is no excuse for the  mine manager  or owner  who does  not  provide such an appliance and see that it  is used.

The chairman replied in effect that the  passing of the resolution would mean that  Johnson would get the lic'ensth  S. Si Taylor asked the chairmiin if he  knew that there was a petition in against  the granting of h saloon in the Johuson  lirehijses.

Police hnigisti'nte Create explained with  regard to his owft action that hfi was  guided by the 'equities iii the case. In  seconding the .motion of the chairman lie  Said that ho was but adhering to his  original position,  S. S. Taylor reminded the board of f lie  decision which had been rendered by the  police magistrate at the trial of John-spii  for seiltiig liquor without a license. At  the trial of the case the magistrate held  that there had been no transfer of a  license to Johuson. In seconding the  motiou   he   was   practically   taking   the  gosition that there had been a transfer,  oth positions could not be right.  Magistrate Crease said that he was in  two different positions.  S. S. Taylor replied that it was not his  desire to criticise the actions of the commissioner but the action of the police  magistrate was inconsistent. The position  which the magistrate took could not be  understood. If there had-been a transfer  as the magistrate now" seemed to assume,  the fine which the magistrate had imposed upon Johnson was improperly  imposed. In concluding he contended  that there had beeu no transfer from Mrs.  Malette to Johnson and without that the  board could not in any event make the  tranfer.  Chairman Neelands replied that the  board had an application for a transfer  from Mrs. Malette.  S. S. Taylor denied that the*document  referred to was a transfer and further  said that even if it were it had been signed  by Mrs. Malette under a misapprehension. She could not read English and  signed the paper thiuking that it was  some necrssarj' paper connected with the  "Provisions" Wlilcfr" W^li Ae Maheitp;SbuS,-Alien*!  ��. ��� M*,"��?".. ��put���qf^Plac;er.

In  other words, of every 100 men only two  were unsteady to the extent of being off  work forjnore than  three days in the. 12  niontlis^The cliarige is very reiiiarkable. ���!

As this is the teaching of experience,  employers who havetrouble withunsteady  men should not be afraid to try-the plan.  If it had been so successful in one case it  ought to be equally successful in others.  It combines business improvement with  social reform, and is of advantage to both  parties. The employer has the double  satisfaction of getting better work .and  making better men. Intelligent workmen  would see at once the merit of the system,  and the pick of them would seek employment at the works where it was in operation.  AsNew.tEngib;?;^  ���:>^nd6u?���1&  ��� gio^i!

Strange as it may seem, even kings and  queens sometimes get tired of their titles  and try to escape observation  by  using  what in the case of more ordinary persons  would be called an alias.    Of course, it is  difficult, if not impossible, for a free and  independent citizen who lives perpetually  in hail of the screaming and defiant eagle,  to imagine how anyone could become tired  of beiug a "ryle" persbuage.

tliorities have merely requested that the
provincial legislature reiiiove the obnoxious euaetiMeutS.   Whether in the 'event
of the provincial   legislature refusing to
comply  with the request, the dominion
would undertake to disallow such legislar
tion, i:s a matter bf speculation atnonft the
politicians.    In any event the people of
the province are brought face to face with
a very gfftive issuer   1'iVt in  a  few words
the   legislature of   the   province is   now
asked   t6 sacrifice the  vvhite laborers of
•the province to the killing competition of
Asiatics.    If this is done the great body
ofwage earners will gradually give place
to Chinese and Japanese,   The working-
men oi' this province will therefore watch
with interest the development of this portion  of the  Semlin government's policy.
If it develops that the  members of the
present government have not sufficient
backbone to stand up for  British  Columbia's rights against all  comers, whether
inside or outside of the domirtion.it  will
be the duty Of the white wage earners of
the province to return as their representatives at Victoria, men who have.
this province to consent to. There is not
much difference between ceding the province to China or Japan, or in so altering
the conditions of the labor market that
Anglo-Saxons cannot make a living in the
province. The people of Kootenay have
a direct interest in this matter, since,
should the government of the province
recede one step from the position which
it has taken with respect to the employment of Chinese or Japanese, it will be
bnt a question of time until another agitator from China or Japan secures the repeal of that section of the mineral act
which precludes the employment of Chinese or Japanese in the nietaliferqus mines
of Kootenay.

notice that the person of the chief justice
and his family and his private residence,
as well as the supreme courr, are under

and the Gin-man gunboat Buzzard, were
in port'and ready for any emergency.
When the Mariposa left, it looked very

Recent Performance of American Roads Does
Not Approach the Feat of 1891.
During the last few days many of the
large papers across the line have devoted
much space and more lavish eulogy to the.
great feat recently'aeconiplished of transporting mails from New York to San
Francisco, a distance of 3,347 miles, in 1.07
hours and 10 minutes, in accomplishing
which over 12 hours was clipped from the
theu existing record for mail trains. A
Chicago paper, commenting on this rapid
run, remarks: "the Canadian Pacific has
been anxious to get the 'plum but cannot
make the time." The plum referred to is

Mataafa Would Have the Best of the Contest
in a Resort To Arms.
San Francisco, Jan. M.—The officers of
the steamer Mariposa, which has just
arrived from Australia, say that when
the steamer left Aspia there was every
prospect of a small si/.ed civil war in
Saroo. The trouble is over the rival
claims of two chiefs for the throne of
Samo and the chief justice was to pass
judgment upon the same a day or two
after the steamer left.
Whichever way the decision went
trouble was expected as the followers of
each candidate vowed that they would
fight if the other chief was made king.

In addition to the mails, a German

that in future lie would be content to jog

let others break them if they liked.
Political Predictions.
It is easy for Sir Wilfrid Laurier to
open a gold cine institute for the reform
of the senate, but the trouble is to get
that venerable body to come into* the
scheme and be reformed.
These negotiations at Washington may
culminate in a regular Yukon deal with
Sir Wilfrid Laurier taking Clifford Sif-
ton's part and Uncle Sam in the Mackenzie-Mann role as receiver of everything in
sight.  ■
The Frer c'amen Were to Blame.
London, Jan. 13.-The admiralty court
today found that the steamer, La Bour-
gogne of the French line was alone to
blame for the collision with the British
ship Cromartyshire, July 4 last, near
Sable island off the coast ot Nova Scotia,
resulting in the sinking of the steamer
and loss of over 500 lives.
Scheme Whereby a Nervy Drummer Is Earning Money in the West.
Felix Carr, a Chicago drummer, has
been working out a new idea, He has
been working it with success all the way
from St. Paul to Spokane; he is now testing it on the folks between Spokane and
Puget Sound. From Spokane he sent homo
a report of $I;">,000 in commissions earned
in less than 10 weeks, with a four months'
tour of triumph yet to come.
His plan was big. It had to be. to meet
the new conditions. Instead of working
for one concern, this 20th century drummer proposed to represent three or four.
Tiistead of acouple of samphj-trunks, he
proposed a couple of baggage cars fitted
up as salesrooms. Instead of a circular
letter mailed a month ahead to his customers, he proposed a secretary, who
would attendto the correspondence while
en route, and instead of a slow way-train
from town to town he proposed a special
train to stop and go on as directed.
Such a scheme, at first thought, was
somewhat of a stagger to many of Chicago's big wholesale merchants. TJiey
were conservative and the old way was
good enough. They looked upon the
plans of Felix Carr (as too gigantic for
hasty acceptance. It might do for some
lines, but not theirs. It was like selling
goods on the circus plan. A band and
gilt wagon would be the next proposition.
Besides, the expenses—who was going to
pay for all this special train and secretary
and fitting up of coaches and cars?
Mr. Carr let them reach this point without comment. Theu he silenced them with
the quiet/remark: "I will pay all expenses.
All I ask of you is to furnish samples of
your goods and pay me a commission on
my sales."
After that there was not much difficulty. Mr. Carr went to work to organize
his travelling staff and prepare his special
train. A Wagner coach was placed at
his disposal for a consideration. The
sleeping rooms at either end were left intact, but the central portion of the car
was transformed into an office. The" seats
were removed and in their place were put
a couple of roll-top desks, one for Mr.
Carr and one for the secretary,. Iu„ the

Carr did not propose to-ruin his temper
and hi,s digestion, both sadly detrimental
to businessaciimeu, byrelyingori country
hotels for his screature comforts1. A neat
and tasty dining room was arranged at
one end of the car, vvith a compact little
kitchen attached. At the other end''was

Carr left Chicago November 1, 1S9S, for
the northwest. His arrangements for
transportation were all made with the
railroad companies and his route was laid
out with exactness. It was to begin really
at St. Paul and from thence clear across
the continent to Seattle and back over
another route. It was to occupy six
months' time.
From St. Paul the train went to Fargo,
N. D., where operations began.
Mr. Carr, in fact, wasexpeeted. He had
sent to every merchant of note in the
place a letter announcing his arrival on a
certain date and informing them that he
would be pleased to meet them in his
office at the depot aud show them a
choice assortment of goods, etc. At Fargo
the special train was side-tracked after
being detached from the regular through
passenger train alid Mr. Carr and his secretary did business with the same comfort and ease as though in their home
The novelty of the thing attracted the
attention of the merchants and they responded to the invitation to visit the
office and salesroom of Mr. Carr with
alacrity." Sales were made of flattering
proportions, and if some buyer needed
special urging, then Mr. Carr called at the
store and put in a few more convincing
arguments. From Fargo the route was
to Bismarck, and on to Great Falls, Helena, Moi.it.,. Colfax, Spokane, . Walla
Walla, Tacoma and Seattle. Of course
many other towns of more or less importance were visited between these points,
and great was the curiosity to see the
special train at all points.
The last news from this up-to-date
drummer was that he had reached Spokane and the trip had been "a winner"
from the start. In this connection it may
be interesting to give a few figures, not
the absolute ones, but approximately.
The expectation of Mr. Carr in his novel
enterprise was that in the six months'
trip he would make sales aggregating
ijj250,000. His commission would be 10 per
cent or $25,000. Out of this his expenses,
roughly estimated at $10,000, would come,
leaving him the comfortable sum of
$15,000 for his labors. As a matter of fact
it is likely that his profit from this big
undertaking will greatly exceed the original estimate.   After being a little over
two months "on the road" more than
$150,000 worth of goods have been sold, so
that a conservative estimate of the remainder of the trip should place the sales
beyond the $300,000 mark.
French Rights in Newfoundland.
The opinion  in London  is that Great
Britain and France  will easily settle all
differences   with  respect to Madagascar
and   Newfoundland.     As   regards   Newfoundland,    French   opinion   already   is
reconciling itself to the inevital abandonment   of   the    last    remnant   of  North
American empire, France having been at
last led to realize that unless she leaves
Newfoundland now, on equitable terms
of    compensation,   Newfoundland,   as a
self-governing British colony, has means,
and will use them,   with  the support of
British    public    opinion,    for    reducing
French treaty rights to a practical nullity.
Hence some remarkable statements from
Paris, whTch can hardly be made without
official inspiration.   French rear admiral
ReveiJIere declares:     "Contrary to assertions    which   have   obtained  .too   much
currency,  I   affirm   positively,   with  the
certainty of nob being gainsaid  by any
officers   who   know   our   Newfoundland
station,   that  the  French shore has no
kind of   value for Our navy." - Admiral
Reveillere goes on to urge the exchange of
French rights for "something of equivalent value."
Marc; Landry, the well known publicist,
declares in Figaro :—" The French shore
is nob worth the blood of a single French
sailor. We should be well advised in accepting compensation in exchange for this
part of our coast." The whole tone of the
Parisian press is similar, and it would now
seem only necessary for; Salisbury and
Cam bon to d iscuss terms of com perisatidn.
Territorial compensation Great Britain
will presumably refuse, and France has
no territorial rights on the treaty shore
to barter, and as the French cod fishery
produces less than $40,000 annually, and
employs a mere handful of Frencemen,
the suggestion is made in authoritative
quarters that $500,000 would be a liberal
compensation to terminate once lor all
every French right on the Newfoundland
coast. •'.■■"..'■•' ■-■■■-■ ■■
