The Times, The Mail and The Standard have established overseas departments ami: how the Pall Mai! Gazette  is preparing the first issue of an Em-  p.ire^supplenien.t:which it intends: to  publish yearly.

Besides  there are three at least London publications; devoted .exclusively to Canada  ���������The Canadian Gazette, Canada, and  the Canadian Mail. On the other hand  several Canadian journals have sent  special representatives t.6 l^ondon to  report the present political campaign,  something in fact that-, was . never  done before.

That is npt to say either that the busi  ness men were backing up the liquoi  {interests,   for   the  great ^ajority   ol  hem did not want to se the open sa  oon return.    Many of them objected,  lowever, to the clause in the amend  nent which seemed to involve, an in  asion of personal liberty in that the  egislature could legislate against the  eeping of liquor in the honre.    Many  hought,   too,  that the  prohibitionists  were going too far; that if. they were  ?iven their way altogether prohibitory  aws and their enforcement would rap-  dly become rather an oppression than  simple ridding of the state of the sale  of liquor over the bar.  The campaign was warming up when  for the public ^e w,iter visited Birmingham. It was  rather difficult at times to get men to  talk on the economic effects of prohibition in the 22 months it hbd been in  force.   They wanted to talk about the  constitutional  amendment.    Naturally  you are not interested in constitutional  amendments when your mission is to  get at the effects of prohibition. Inter-  Tiews quoted here then are those from  ���������men who, in the opinion of the writer,  ������pt away from their feelings on   the  amendment and talked about the economic effects of prohibition.  ��������� Pijphibition went into effect in Birmingham just after the panic of 1907 and  that'City and the surrounding district  in common with all other places in the  south   felt the    business    depression  which followed the panic.   During the  summer of 1908 Birmingham had another trouble too.   It came in the form  )f a costly and lengthy coal miners'  itrike which to such an industrial dls  rict meant the Ides of millions of dol  'ars.   As usual prohibition Kr'aa blamed  by the liquor interests for 'the depres  sion in business and the losses result-  ng from the natural coudltlbns growing out of the panic  An examination of the figures of pro-  Trees generally accepted In the city  show however that things were not so  -atT after all. In 1908, for instance,  they have It figured out that about  117,500,000 was Invested in the district  That exceeds the amount Invested in  1907 by fully |3r000,000. In the building line the city also broke records In  1908, the first year without' saloons  spending over $2,500,000 on new build  ings as against less than |2,000,<HK In  1907.  Opinion of Wholesalers,  Talking to retailers and wholesaler?  you find that they are generallyot the  opinion that prohibition has not bur:  business.  P. J. Fox, president of the Fox  Smith Grocery Company, retailers, said  'hat be could not see that it bad affected business much one way or the other  t had not hurt their business. It wat  enerally admitted that the a bo! it lor  it the .saloons had reduced crime and  improved the moral tone of the city  !e would not vote to bring thesaloor  again as they bad them before, but he  was not a prohibitionist. He thought  there should be some arrangement by  which people coming to Birmingham  could get what they want in the line  of drink. The clubs should be allowed to have liquor.  Another grocery concern, this.time a  wholesale, thought that It had been  to the advantage of the business men  to have the saloons closed. They had  found that there was more trade particularly in the commissary departments at the mines where large numbers of men were employed.  Mr. Fowike8, of the Fowlkes &  Wyatt, retail grocers, declared ihat-tbe  j abolition of saloons had in his opinion-  had a beneficial effect on trade. His  experience was that people of some  classes were buying more groceries.  They were operating a credit business,  and found.the collections very good-in  deed. There has been a depression  last year in business, as a^result of the,  panic, but this had pa/^ed awayv and  business was improving right, along:  The people now had more money for  groceries, tools and shoes, and  clothes.  C. M. Brown, of the Goodall-Bcpwn  Company, the largest dry goods wholesale, thought that prohibition had improved business, at least, they could  net see it. any otherway-   They had  Grimmett's Jewellery Sale  CHALLENGE PRICES  20 per cent.

It stood to reason that if men  came to the city now they would spend  moie money on food and clothes than  formerly when they had been m the  habit of going to the saloons. He-was  not an extiemist in the matter, but  his belief and experience was that prohibition helped business  The manager of the Walkover Shoe  Company said that he could not see  that prohibitirn had affected busines'  to any great e<tent. He would rathei  have the conditions as they weie lhan  as t hey had been. Business was , increasing steadily:  Effect  on  Clothing  Stores. ��������� ^  J. Dlarh & Sons operate one'of the  largest clothing scores in Birmingham.  I was ���������frequently told that they were  wet in their inclinations. Sent to the  advertising manager. Mr. .Daniels, he  told me that he did not think that local  option had hurt business.;'- Personally  he did not think it had affected it much  one way or\ the other. .The firm had  beaten 1907 ���������iecords so far this year  and that'was doing well. Business was  good and there wfts more money in the  district than ever before. He believed  that the present laws against liquor  were too drastic.  H. A. Dr.eniic.ii, of. Drehnen's department store/ one of the largest in the  city, declared that business was good;  in tact it: was perfectly satisfactory.  Their business for October had shown  a very healthy increase over last October and also over October of 1007.  He had not taken any part in the prohibition movement one way or another  He did not know, whether it was prohibition or not but business was very  satisfactory.  Mr. Loeb, of Loveman, Joseph and  Loeb, large department store, is against  prohibition. He could not see, how ever,  that, it had done anv harm to his firm  in a business way. Their business had  increased 20' per cent, in the last four  weeks. It Was better than last year  or the year befoie.    Some men   left  stood to reason that if the money did  not go'ihto the saloons it would go into other channels. Collections were  about the same with them. Last year  the city had felt the effects of the  panic and the strike which had to some  extent caused a 'epiession in business.  Employeis ot abor in Birmingham  and the surrounding district in the aa-  jority of cases believe that the absence  of the saloons is advantageous to them  fiom a labor point of view  Street Railway's Experience.  Piesident Foid, of the Birmingham  Railway, Light and >Power Co., which  operates the street lailway^and furnishes light and powder to" the citizens,  said that he- regaided prohibition as  beneficial to 'business. There were  j_about 1,100 men employed by the corporation. They did not hire anybody,  who was intemperate. He believed (hat  collections were on. the whole better in  the light department since the saloons  had goiie out.. They had lost quite a  lot of lighting business when 200 saloons closed, but had made up the loss  in new business and also had had an  increase beyond that. He was Inclined  to think that poor men's wives as ������  rule had more money now to buy food  and groceries. The company had been  troubled less with accidents since the  saloons closed and there had been less  cars.   Prohibition had a good effect on  the moral tone of the city. Thedepres-  saloons has helped tbe 500 men in their  employ at Birmingham. It had , in  creised the efficiency of labor bv'abont  40 per cent., lessened accidents by about  25 per cent., and cut down garnishments by about 50 per cent. In 1907  when the woiks were running full blast  there had always been trouble in get  ting out any kind of a full force after  pay day. On the last pay day, without  saloons, there weie only two out of t25  men absent in one department.  .7. H Goodapple, secretary-ti easurei  of the Dimmick Pipe Co, declared(that  prohibition v had helped them quite a bit  with their labor. The 600 men employed did nctt spend neatly so much  for liquor now as foi merly and the result was that they had riioip money  for groceries arid;clothes. Theie wai  not so much difficulty'''now in getting  a working force on the Monday after  each pay day and there weie few men  absent in comparison with what there  used to be when the saloons weie limning.  W. A. Green, treasurer and auditor of  the Republic Iron and Steel Co, employing about '000 men in mines and  runiaces, said lie could not see that  ���������irohibition hsul affected their men  ���������niKli Ore way or another.

Taking the large concerns operating  mines,..blast.furnaces, steel plants and  so on, one find that they are, for the  most part, in favor of prohibition.  Frank H.

Church Cards $10.00  per year  Birth, Marriages and Deaths  free  In the ensuing civic elections much  attention has been drawn to the election of suitable men for license commissioners.  In past years we have had men sitting on this toward who have been doing a large business with the hotels.  This to our mind is a state of things  that should be remedied. We do not  allow aldermen to sell goods to the  city; therefore why should we allow  our license commissioners to sell  goods to the hotels?  For instance, supposing there is on  cur license board a commissioner who  does a large business wit h t he hotel s,  and through an infringement of the  law one of his best customers is called before the board, can we expect  him to be absolutely unbiassed? He  would be hardly human if he failed'to  lean to the side of his customer.  Our license laws should be administered impartially without fear or favor, and no interested party should  have a Beat on this board.  It betokens a healthy public sentiment when our business men seek of  themselves to better any set of. conditions, as they have in this instance,  and it behooves the electors to see that  only men of unquestioned integrity are  e'ected on this board. This year that  opportunity is before them.

The joint fisheries case will not.be  heard before the Hague tribunal till  the middle of May, and the result of  (Continued from page 1  attendance at the exhibition is  Owing to the illness of Mr. Dixon, his paper on "How to Make Poultry  Pay" was dispensed with. Mr. Breed,  however, kindly consented to deliver  his lecture last night instead of Thurs-  day night, as announced. "How to  Breed and Mate Poultry" was what  Mr. Breed spoke on, which proved very  interesting to those interested in work  of this nature. It was not from the  theoretical point that Mr. Breed enlightened his hearers, but from results  of practical experience. He operates  on the basis that like begets like, in  that btrds of the same family being  mated to each other year after year  become deficient in quality and soon  lose all value from an exhibitors point  of view as well as for other purposes.  It Is a well-known fact that birds with  blemish will inbreed blemish, and  those who work on the theory that to  mate a bird with an infection with one  that Is pure, with the idea that affection will disappear, are making a mistake, and will quickly find that the  of/spring do hot carry1 the same brilliant plumage or do they compare with  the properly bred stock at all for exhibition purposes. To form varied  colors it is necessary to understand  fully the various methods adopted by  successful breeders. Mr. Breed also  enlightened his hearers regarding the  focd to be used at all times, the different kinds of coops which are designed  for different purposes as well as different climates, and a multitudinous  amount of other knowledge which is  invaluable to the successful poultry  raiser as well as the layman, whose  hopes run high and who expects to  make breeding of poultry and. game  hlrds ppv not on'o their keep but  handsome profits.  The judges aie busy from early  morning till darkness compels them to  suspend operations for the day, and  get through a big number of contestants. The three men judging the birds  state that they have never officiated  in any event where there are so many  fine specimens of thoroughbred fowl.  This adds to the difficulties of their  tasks, as many of the birds are almost  identical and it is only by diawing the  finest points that they aie able to  make an award.  The Prize Winner*.
