|'i      The License Commissioners purpose appointing a special man. to
���'/inspect the " Liquor Licenses."    No appointment has yet been inailc
but we hope that a wise choice will he inside.    There is no branch
of trade which is so hard to control as.the "Liquor Trade."
The very nature of the business is. "defiance of law and human
Justice." The 'liquor trade want-more Favors and consideration and
contribute less lo society than any other business on the face of the
���earth. It is. therefore, highly important that we have a man. fearless in the discharge, of his duty and who cannot be bought. Those
."who are in this branch of business will spend more moiieyctocorrupt
ofiieials and administrations than any other class.of men under the
.sun. it takes nlore.than an ordinary.man to refuse subtle and valuable gifts. A. few years ago the head of a certain brewery made the
following: offer to an inspector, he said: "Your work, "inspector, is
l', very important, now we own about one half of the Hotels in the
City and it is to our interest that, they should lie. ruir right. Yon
are. doing your duty and we know you do not receive a large salary
and we would like to suppliment it by giving oyn an additional
monthly stipend. And any time you would like a case of cliain-
agne or claret just let us know." The inspector flatly refused any
gifts. Result, exit Inspector, lie-lasted about, two months.. ]Jc
was too good for his job.
The License Commissioners are revising the License By-Law.
It is an oportuue moment for every good citizen to interest himself
in the matter. The "Trade.'* will look after their interest with a
fidelity and fondness ".that/stieketh closer than a brother." They
will neglect no influence, direct or indirect, that money and friendship can secure to get their views embodied in that By-Law. All
the hired emissaries and legal advisers of the Trade are now work-'
t ing openly aitd secretly to obtain their ends.
Interest yourself in the Commission and its work and secure a
By-Law that every lawyer cannot drive a four-in-hand through.   A
������ lWdjijy r\yli.ich \yill.fa,iti.y iuterpret public opinion.   We would suggest
���that citizens and organizations get."drafts of the By-law and do their
utmost t��> *��e that. the. best interests of the public are properly conserved. -7   -. .7   "'. '.   :
i .' A large representative,meeting of delegates of- almost every,
union on "(lie^" lower" "Mainland0 and.Islands was held this week iiv
Labor headquarters to organize a permanent labor party.
This is simply a very natural result of the attitude, of the two
great political parties who have studiously ignored the growing in-,
forests and demands of the industrial element. This course is foolish
and suicidal on the part of administrations, as the democratic principle is training strength dailv and Ave expect to see a great and
important change in the complection of the Local Government at no
Aery distant date. As previously stated in these columns, the
Government made a vital mistake in refusing to listen to the voice
[of the people regarding ownership of public utilities. Progress demands that this important step he taken in our political history and
no power on earth can frustrate its accomplishment.
A License is~a permit to sell intoxicating liquors for "One"
I year.    A license that was'tinder the ha lie of the law (The Iroquois)
pvas recently sold for $10,000.   Thjs can fairly he taken as a minimum,
value of a liquor license.   AVhctv-in. we ask, lies the value?   Itschief'"
lvalue lies in its "transfer" powers.
At present any license can be transferee! and is looked upon
Ias a very valuable asset and has resulted in a very brisk traffic in
licenses. It results in a very inferior type of men getting into the
business, also in the brewery controlling about two-thirds of the
licenses of the. city and while one. man is convicted of a breach' of
the law, the license is transferred to some other individual by the
brewery, the license is only a ''dummy" man. and absolutely irresponsible. We would, therefore, urge that the new by-law should
provide "that no license is transferable," thus lessening its value
as-'a "commodity" and increasing its value as a "permit." which
would result in a better observance of the law. Also that no license
lie issued to any man whose, premises or chattels are mortgaged or
hypothecated to. or owned by a Brewery. At present a large number of our so-called hotels are nothing more than dives to dispose of
beer for the. brewery.   These features should be eliminated now.

"What is thes l:se of Prayer Anyway?"
Most sincerely do 1 congratulate the
Dominion Government on its quick and
liberal action in relation to the False
Creek question, if 1 understand that
question correctly. As it reads in the
Xews-Advertiser it apperas to be just
such a course as should satisfy all fair-
minded persons.
J shall quote fully as the matter is
so important:
"Otawa, April 23.���the .Marine Department, acceded to the requests ot
.Mayor Tayior and Alderman Hepburn.
of Vancouver, n. c, for the improvement of the head of False Creek by
the removal of all restrictions on the
grant, the tilling in of a portion of the
head for. the Great Northern railway,
and either the filling in or the creation
of a channel in the remainder of the
Without exception, everything that
the visitors from the west asked for
was granted. The settlement as to
whether or not. the creek will be tilled
in above Gore avenue will rest with the
Vancouver ratepayers as the department has promised to give its consent
to either, scheme."
Some comments' of a favorable nature are in place here.
First.���This is one ot the most important despatches that ever reached
this city from Ottawa. And moreover
the des patcher is.a master of terse
English. Scarcely ever is so much material of so great import so clearly
ami succinctly stated in words so few.
Second.���The government, deserves
praise in quickly saying to the people
of Vancouver: You should be the ai-
bitors of your own destiny In that
which is practically your own affairs
The speed and denniteness of the ac
tion are commendable. And though )
have written strongly, words of condemnation.' of -tlie governments, aava
policy, I readily praise wherein the Ottawa authorities do justly and wisely
for the whole people.
Third.���The Mayor and Alderman
Hepburn deserve the thanks of Vancouver for their success aud the definite-
ness of the proposition they placed be
fore the government. In pas days
there has been a lack of definiteness
ami comprehension of the circumstances and conditions. Hence in the
past we moved forward very slowly.
Honor to whom honor is due.
Fourth.���The wisdom of the Council
in acceding to those who opposed the
attempt to place before the electorate
only one bylay, thus tagging the hulk
head proposition to the railway-cit>
contract, is now clearly   manifest.
Had the aldermen not changed their-
attitude and complied with, the desire
of  the  False  Creek property   owners
and  many other  ratepayers  and   citizens, especially those, in the east of the
city to whom this is a matter of vital
importance, then the Mayor and Alder-
inn Hepburn would have had a deputation of two.men to oppose them at Ottawa.   But. by the action of the Council
on Saturday, the day the city deputation  left  for Ottawa,  the Council   re-
j moved very strong opposition nd added
jto their position material help.
I " How  much  wiser to yield  to those
i who were asking nothing but what was
j openly and manifestly fair, the. to en-
| danger the whole movement ami work
|of the Council and railway which had
| extended over    long    and    strenuous
j period   of  time!     The  aldermen   who
i changed  their votes rose to the occasion and helped to save the situation.
j     Fifth.���The property-owners and  in-
! teres!ed  citizens  most assuredly gave
! much  aid   iu  securing  what  has  been
'so wisely granted by the government.
! And 1 herein desire to draw ihe.atten-
! tion of those who helped iu the Grand-
1 view mass metings and in other ways,
'to the importance of being ready and
: determined to speak quickly and forcir
jbly on all public affairs.   Had the property owners a nd east end citizens not
j vigorously      opposed      tlie      primary
! scheme, their freedom of choice and of
': tiie -franchise would  in this important
��� ihatter have been imperiled or cureail-
���    Now. they, in "common with all the
: ratepayers,  have  an  open   and   easily-
' understood pair of propositions before
; fhem for consideration and for voting.
From the late vigorous and just1 cani-
! paign. which was wisely listened to by
the  majority of the  Council,  we  may
learn the value of being ready to organize   for  the   plebiscites   which   are
The problem of maintaining good
roads..always a most important one in
Canada, has recently been rendered of
critical urgency by the rapid develop-
ment of the automobile���the most destructive vehicle to road surface that
ever ran on our modern highways.
The public resentment or regret, as the
ease may be, against the destructive
effects of automobile traffic siiouid be
tempered by the recognition of the fact
that it has been the most active instrument in awakening tho public to the
necessity for abandoning the old slipshod methods of road building, and
constructing them according to the
best engineering practice.
If it were possible to rebuild all'our
roads of the most approved and highest class of construction, and if the
most suitable material were everywhere available, the problem would be
greatly simplified, but such uniform
excellence is impossible, both because

to put larger and more cars on the

Ihem-hi-ganie" by taking cars on one

way out from the city .
The East Union line folk have more

real angry about tlie deal tliey are
getting from the S. K company. They
demand relief.
In the may issue of Hampden's Magazine is published the history
of. the remarkable development of the Southern Pacific. It reads
much like a fairy tale, and were it not for the fact that; the States
through which this arognnt 'company operates at present feel keenly
the burden of her power and dominance, we might still doubt the
truth of  the story.
The writer tells how Sol is -I*. Huntingdon. Leland Stanford, Mark
Hopkins and Charles Crocker started in 1861 with a total capital of
$108,987.00. according to their own sworn statements.^ '"Within  23 _
years they had received in dividends $S4.^08,0;"��5.00, besides enormous
profits from subsidiary companies such as the Contract & Finance
coin pany and the Western Development company,'and they controlled 5,905 miles of railroad., with a total capitalization of $454.000,-'
000.00.   They were the dictators of ten states and territories, exercising an almost unlimited and absolute rule.   No man could win office
except by the approval or sunranee of these magnates.    No man
could hold office who did not cany out to the letter the slightest wish ���
of the "combination."   Many'fosind'that-they could do no business
except under the sanction of the^'powers" at the head.
That such a condition could possibly obtain in a free, country -
is almost beyond belief.    The basis on which the freight tariff'was
drawn, was according to Mr. liuntington,   "what tlie   traffic will
bear." , '
Tbe people have meekly allowed this concern to appropriate the.
wealth of the public domain.    If any effort were now made to dis- ^
tnrb them in any way. immediately the cry would go up of "Vested
Rights.''   What constitutes "vested rights"i   Are not the original
rights of the public, vested rights?   We do not need.to appeal to
'���'precedent-'.'-to-give a fair definition of what constitute vested interests.    The first essential in the study of the question of what
constitute's "vested interests" is to'-decide how far an individual or
corporation may intrude the realm pf public heritage.''.: It is absurd
to-state that any private interest can reasonably claim any vested"
interest in something of value which is simply the result of appropriating to themselves that' which rightly; belongs to the nation.   It
is equally absurd to' say that /any private concern ean operate for
private gain in a way as tQ jeopardize public interests.   Atiil it naturally follows that if the operation of any private interest has re-:
suited in the aliehation ofJthe^national wealth, that'it is within the
power of the nation to confiscate or expropriate the holdings of such
concern., This view point ha��-been heldi hy-some of the greatest
minds of history.   l*lato repeatedly stated that the private interest
must be subservient to the public, welfare.   Solon, the .great Jfircek .
legislator..gave��� ��t practical demonstration ot\ this doctrine during the^,
period  which  he  ruled  in  Athens.    Solon   cancelled'^ail  existing'
debts and contracts simply because the avarice of those who loaned
was such as to menace the life of the nation.    It was the only way
that the national life could be preserved.   The Southern Pacific, the
Canadian  Pacific and scores of other great concerns openly defy
the doctrine of "Public Control of Public  Utilities."    They even
go so far as to refuse to come under the control of the government,
as to freight rates, etc.   This high handed defiance is inimical to the
best interests of the nation and sooner or later the 'Democracy of the
Country will settle-these vexed questions as did Solon in Greece.

All orders were sent by wireless telegraphy to the officers conducting the  expedition, and they in turn gave instruction by telepathic code, understood only hy the snboffkers woh commanded by words, signals, iuxlfers,  and volograms.  The reason for sending telepathic  code orders was to avoid giving information to the cunning skanank, which  hud picked up not only the Marsijn  language, but also mastered the telepathic mode of conversation. Hence the  Marsians had to adopt a code which  the skananks could not understand.  Had these terrible creatures been endowed with hands instead of hoofed  nnd webbed feet, they would surely  have made all sorts of destructive machines and finally destroyed man from  the face of Mars.  Lacking hands they lacked all the  wonderfully complicated . and deadly  enginery'of war. and locomotion possessed hy the Marsians.  The skanank pickets watched carefully, lest the villagers' of the neighboring valleys would come suddenly  over the passes close to the sea coast  and pour into them a crushing volley  of missies.

The wall of the Andes begins at the  CariblMMii aud runs all the way down {  the western edge of South America until it trails off Into the Antarctic like a  jagged dragon's tall.   It Is a very high  wall and a very wide one���������sometimes  scores   and   sometimes   hundreds   of  ; miles   across���������and   except   In   a   few  [places all   but   impassable.    There Is  jthe Oroya railroad in central Peru, tbe  -highest in tbe world, which will take  you from the drowsy tropical coast at  breakfast time and by early afternoon  ;set you ou the roof of the divide, shiv-  ' eriug and  breathing fast,  1.5.500 feet  above the sea.  .There is a railroad up  t>  Lake  Titicaca   from   Mollendo,  in  ^southern    Peru,    which    crosses   the  shoulder of the Andes af on altitude  about a thousand feet lower, and there  is fl railroad running down into Chile  and the coast from the Bolivian plateau.     The   only    railroad   highway  which crosses the continent, however,  is that which climbs the Chilean mountains to the pass of Uspallatn nnd runs  ; thence across   the  pa in pa   to   Buenas  Aires. Some day this will be a through  line from sea to sea, and in a dozen or  more places tunnel gangs are nibbling  under the upper cordillera.    But now  it is open only (luring tbe summer, and  even then the fourteeu kilometers over  the Cunibre, or summit of the pass,  must be made by stage.   Iu winter no  attempt is  made to cross, and from  Mendoza.   iu   the- Argentine   foothills,  over to Los Andes, on the Chilean side,  about 150 miles, the road Is closed.  The Andes, In these parts rise to appalling heights, the loftiest of which  Is Aconcagua's 24.000 feet, and the pass  Itself is at not far from 13.000���������3.900  meters, to be exact.   During the winter  ���������the months of our northern summer-  It Is buried iu snow, the deadly temporal  Is likely at any  time, to., whirl  down on the traveler, and crossing tbe  cordillera is as different a thing from  crossing  it  In  summer as crossing a  prairie carpeted with spring violets Is  different from venturing into It during ,  a blizzard, when a man may lose his i  way   aud   freeze  to  death  a   furlong J  frorii tlie ranch house door.

One of these stamps was sent to the  Hamilton, posfoftice. where It was sold  to aU;old'gentleman, who said It wtts  H shame to print the queen's-' picture  on a stamp that might be handled by  profane hands. Tenderly the old geu-  teniaii put It ou a parcel, sending It to  a friend In tlie United States. Here,  in the wastehiisket. It lay for many a  day till an -'errand boy found it and  (piickly transferred it to his album  Despairing of getting a good collection  and his fever for stumps somewhat  abating, he sold them to a dealer. The  new owner, on looking at the catalogue, found that what he had paid **������  for was worth $2o.  Accidentally the stamp was slipped  into a 25 cent packet aud sent to a  dealer residing iu Hamilton. When  the latter opened the packet be wa*  sstoiilshed to llnd such a valuable  stamp and. being holiest, wrote his  friend to Inform him of what bad happened, offering him $1,200 for It. The  offer was accepted, aud the stamp  again changed hands. By this time tbe  ������tuuip had increased In value, and-not.  a few came from a distance to look at  the treasure. One day an English nobleman, who. through a Canadian  friend, had beard of the stamp, offered I  ���������1..T00. which offer was accepted. The i  English lord, falling in love with mi j  American heiress and wishing to gain  the favor of her brother, presented  him whii the stamp as a token of  ewteein Here. In Its new and Injurious American home, It came to a sad  end. for one day the maid, by mistake,  swept the stamp, which bud accidentally fallen out of the album. Into tbe  lire. In an Instant the stamp which  tboiiKHiidn had heard of and longed  for went up iu mnoke to the broad,  blue ������ky, leaving not n trace behind.  (To   be   continued   next   week.)

Even though I  think the city has ben too liberal with  the company, and has given too much  away, yet as maters stand I am of the  opinion that the citizens should ratify  the contract and thus great the great  work involved into operation. With  the ratification and the following developments will come a vast improvement in all directions.  We would see Vancouver grow.  Then It is before us now to do our  fchare.  .

Some say leave a  good broad channel open to the extreme east end so as to accommodate  1 tbe east end of the city and the constantly growing mosquito fleet. At  present this matter stands thus: The  City Council Is preparing a bylaw in  relation to the railway contract, and a  plebiscite for the ratepayers to vote.cm  at the same time, as to whether they  favor an open channel or the perpetttai  Closing of navigation of theis magnificent, inland, convenient, well-sheltered i  basin.  , For a longtime the News-Advertiser,  tbe Daily ��������� Province, and many of the  citizens have' advocated calling for  plans from the best sea-port experts  of Europe and America. Doubtless this  is tne wise course to adopt.

Let those plans be varied so as to  include, and also exclude the channel  desired by so many of tbe citizeus.

Now here, it seems to us, is a plan  which might very well be followed in  this country by the founding of a national good roads laboratory,." say at  Vancouver, which might co-operate  with similar but smaller Institutions  provided for and controlled by the various legislatures. . The cost of carrying on such institutions would repre -  sent but a moderate percentage of the  money that is annually thrown away  on the construction and so-called re -  pair of highways by the present de  ective methods.

ENRICO FERRI ON CRIMNOLOGY  Prof. Enrico Ferri, Lombroso's most  illustrious disciple in criminal anthropology, in a lecture at Milan attributed  the alarming growth of child crime in  Italy to steam.  Discussing modern industrialism in  elation to youthful crime, he ex-  iressed his conviction that the breaking up of family life, degeneracy of the  male physique, the eugulfment of women and children in "white slavery"  and other evils -were traceable to the  use of steam power.  This appalling state of things, he  said, was destined to disappear with  he coming reign of electricity, which  would be universal, when, as science  foresaw, man had discovered how to  convert the heat of the sun by direct  neans into electrical energy.  He said that already in parts of the  United States and Belgium sewing ma-  bine work in factories had been abolished, and women were able to. work  shorter hours in their own homes with,  machines driven by electricity.  Within a few years progressive governments would be able to shorten the  wbrkiug time of those employed in in  iustrial ocupations, aud, what was still  nore imperative from the ciimiuologi  jal standpoint, to abolish night work.   -���������  ��������� GREAT GOLD SCARE  When   the  Yellow   Metal Was  First Founu In Australia.

' The duty would have been three cents  but tbe judge fixed the line at $3.0U on  every card,: in tbe pack, or over (i.OOO  times the duty. As the;old woman.  who.A keeps herself by collecting herbs,  is unable to pay the tine and would  probably not survive imprisonment, she  has sent iu a petition to the emperor  asking for a free pardon, which his  majesty will doubtles grant.  Another woman, over seventy years  of age, who is also believed to be the  victim of a miscarriage of justice, collapsed the other .day on 'the steps of  the ministry of justice hi Vienna and"  had to be taken to a hospital. She  and her husband had, as they considered, been unjustly condemned by a  judge at their native place. Radzucli-  owy. in Calicia, to a tine for assaulting  a neighbor.

The'  analytical study of the subject, whicii  was set on foot by M. Buffet, .Engineer  of Roads and Bridges, so far back as  18C8. has developed into the present,  municipal laboratory; which has so  greatly extended its field of work,  that to-day it is considered by many  to be the finest in existence. At  the date mentioned, apparatus was In -  ���������tailed for testing the resistance of  paving materials to wear by friction ���������  which was followed by a machine for  testing the resistance to abrasion of  the stone used in Macadam roads.

Last year many of the farms were  ieased to .individuals or were tilled by  :he superintendent and paid assistants.  When the state legislature learned that  :he farms were not fulfilling their original purposes a bill was enacted allowing the state agricultural college to  take over the land and coin!net experiment in forming for the benefit of the  country. The experiment stations are  to replace 'he bulletin issued by the  ���������ollege.

Th* English Government Tried to and  Did For a Time Suppress the News  Because It Feared a General Uprising In tH.e Colony of Criminals.  t;<ild in Australia was discovered  one might almost be pimloiied for suj  big first discovered many times. But  the news of ihe e:trli������������st discoveries was-  jealously ki*pt'from spreading These  crct of this rtMi<-<*iice lay in tbe pres  ence ot ilit* army of convicts which  then composed I be balance of the pup  ulation. Hud/a gold panic broken out  it was feared that a general uprising  of the prisoners would take place.  Nevertheless the Hist gold found ii.  Australia was by convicts, iu 18H  near Hathurst.

Tht  discoverers gathered together a quail  tity quite sufficient to lead them to In*  lieve that they bail found a gold mine  but when they reported what they con  sidered their good fortune to the keep  er he. instead of undertaking to rec  ommeud them for pardon or easin;  their hard laltors in any way. threat  ened to give them all a sound noggin*  if they ventured again to say a won  about tbe matter or to spend any mor������  time picking up gold.

WQMANS WORLD  New features follow one another in  such rapid succession that they lose  something of the novelty they would  have did they appera less precipitately,  .'o soner is one fashion introduced than  another is announced, in itself acceptable, but which, in conjunction with  the one lhat has been previously exploited, changes the aspect of the costumes as a whole. . It is a difficult  situation.  The two most interesting innovations to date have to do, one with the  manipulation of stri|ies, the other with  the treatment of thin materials. The  first is best demonstrated by a description of one of the models in India silk.  India silk, by the way, is not strongly  emphasized as one of the season's materials, but, as a matter of fact, it is  one of the most a tractive on the list.  Flounce of Corded 8hirrings.  At this point the skirt is met by������a  flounce composed of alternate couieu  shirrings done in groups of three, and  bands of dainty batiste hand embroidery with a narow ruffle���������not moie  than an inch and a half wide���������as a  fot trimming. This ruffle is put on  with two of the corded shirtings for a  heading.  The flounce itself is applied to the  skirt with a heading���������a frill���������of the  width of the foot ruffle on the skirt.  The blouse is riot particularly novel.  It has the shirred tucker and that is  another of the revivals.  The creative mind will evolve numerous adaptations of these shirred  flounced skirts which, long before the  warm weather season has waned, will  be found a welcome alternate with the  although one of the oldest.   It is much infinity of tunic effects that have in-  Opposite Province  NOTICE.

Over  a foundation skirt is bung a straight  skirt, with the fullnes at the top gathered evenly all around and, at the  knees, pouched a trifle ever a section  that completes the skirt length with  the stripes croswise.

Nor is the flounced skirt a model  that is confined to cotton or linen materials, for the thin silks, an.! even  the more evanescent of the voiles, cotton, silk or wool, are almost, as well  adapted to its construction.

Working among the outcasts and  carrying cheer to those for whom  there is no hope, the priest contracted  the dreaded disease and now it is but  a matter of time before his name wil'  be added to those of the countless who  have been claimed by leprosy.  On the outskirts of Canton is the  village for the "unclean." Here Father Conrady labored day and night, administering to the stricken and the last  rites to the dying. He took but the  ordinary precautions against leprosy.  One day be was called to the side of  a young man who was breathing his  last.Undmindful of the peri! the priest  stayed by the bedside ami stroked the  hand of the dying boy.  A little scratch on his hand came  in contact, with the skin of the youth.  Soon it became known that the priest  had contracted the dread disease, and  it. wasn't long before the first signs  of leprosy showed. Six years is all  that is left to the, heroic priest, for  this is the life of an adult stricken  with   leprosy.  Father Conrady conies of' a noble  Belgian house. He gave up the life  of ease and wealth for the cassock.  For many years , he followed Father  Da mien, who came of peasant stock,  and upon his death continued the work  alone. In the leper's colony of Molo-  kal he followed the work, and, when  the government took over the colony  and the condition of the unfortunates  was Improved, he turned bis face toward a still more distressful community���������the leper settlement near Canton.  One last visit he.made to clyllijatlon.,  studying the disease and aecurlne  funds.

Glass is a substance that we cannot  figure tbe strength of as we can a  great many other things with which  we are familiar It varies greatly in  itself. The strongest glass, as a rule,  breaks into the greatest mini Iter of  fragments. Comparing tlie strength of  thin glass with thick, the former'is relatively tbe stronger. This is a thing  very often lost stglit of. Then, agaIn. as  to the difference between rough plate  and polished plate, we find polished  plate the stronger. This is perhaps to  be attributed to the.fact that all these  very fine surface hair cracks are polished out. These only go into the glass  to a certain depth, and when they are  all or nearly all polished and ground  oft* there is less chance for some of  tbem to form tbe basis of a crack, and  thereby the glass Is increased in  strength Tests have been made, and  some formulae have been arrived at.  As was to be ex|M*ctcc!. they show very  irregular results as to tbe strength of  glass.  A Baseball His Tombstone.  The grave of William A.
