These wholesale licenses.are -a scourge to the province and are nei- ther- more nor less than travelling li- quor stores entirely uncalled for and absolutely illegal. How the police al- low such open breach of law to exist baffles the ordinary observer. Day af- ter -day in the smaller towns in this province, wagon loads of. kegs of beer with impunity, and' -without concern "as to the illegality, of the business simply because those -in authority are either ignorant of what is being done, or have not .yet realized the immense amount of evil which results from that nefarious traffic. It io.high time our "Temperance friends" or Societies were taking this matter in hand and -bringing the notice "of those who .are in a position 'to .suppress this unlawful business which is being carried on under 'the guise of wholesale licenses.

United States, ibecause of the growth of opium smuggling into the Philip- pines, This led to the meeting .-of the International Commission in Shanghai-. las' t year, -where the prelim- inary -work 'of outlining the spread. of the evil was accomplished. The" of- The Hague conference will 'be to adopt measures to suppress jthe traffic. Before the United States' took charge in the- Philippines, no attention was paid To the opium :habit. No at- tempt was made to restrict the im- portation of the drug, although it was known uhat the opium habit was wide- ly prevalent among the Chinese in the Islands. "When the civil govern- ment was established it was discover- ed -that the vice was being taken up by the natives. The evil spread so rap- idly that whole communities were becoming impoverished and rendered unfit for any part of the life in the islands. Of the Chinese in the islands, were confirmed smokers. There -was -no way of esti- mating how many of the natives had developed the iabit. Interest in the -suppression of the vice in the Philippines led to a more careful scrutiny of the ..development of the opium traffic in the United States. In this connection Dr. Hamr ilton Wright, the State Department expert, who has devoted himself to the task for several years, makes the following observations: "By comparison of census and cus- toms returns with established facts China, Formosa and Philip- pines that is, hy working from the head of the problem tailward it may be fairly deduced that Americans in toe Continental United States, con- sume at least pounds of smok- ing opium per annum. As just stat- ed. the American smoker is largely of the outlaw classes, frequently in jail or workhouse. He smokes, there- fore, only when free and in funds. His per annum consumption is never as large as that of the heavy Chinese smoker. It would seem that there are at least Americans who are victims of the habit. "By working from the tail of the problem headward, this deduction is confirmed. In the course of inves- tigations, inquiries were made of the police departments, physicians, war- dens of jails, educated asd intelligent Chinese opium habitues themselves, and of other reliahle sources. In re- gard to the number of Americans who indulge in the habit of smoking op- ium. The highest estimate in re- gard to snch large cities as New York, Chicago and San Francisco, was for each city, the lowest If is taken as the average of these three cities and applied to our other larger and smaller northern, eastern, and western centres of pop- ulation, it seems certain that the above deduction is right" Smuggled 'From Canada Despite tihe precautions of the cus- toms, service and revenue col- lectors, it 'has been impossible -to -pre- vent the smuggling of opium. It is estimated that pounds pass the .Canadian border every year from the Chinese opium manufacturers in Can- ada. iThe ingenuity of the collectors has -been taxed to the i utmost to find the hiding places-in, which-opium i secreted on; the Pacific liners enter- ing San Francisco, and. with all their vigilance "tihey, have .'been unable to prevent a certain... steady supply from being 'brought in by.this means. The .drug also is smuggled across the !bor- 'der from Mexico-, in considerable amounts. No nation struggling single-landed ban suppress the vice because of the extraordinary lengths those addicted to it 'will go to elude the. revenue col- lectors and'defy the and' the enormous profits TO be, made .by those who care to take th-e .risk of handling it.- In some -cases, -while one. govern- ment is doing "its utmost-to suppress the evil, -others are cultivating the poppy on government farms for the revenue it produces. Great Britain agreed with 'China to-.reduce the exportation1 of chests per an- num from Calcutta to 'China toy one- tenth each year on condition that China reduce her internal production in the same proportion.

An -excellent .appreciation him appeared on- the occasion, of "his seventy-sixth -birthday. John Mdrlej- presided and .the most eminent of literary and public men at- tended. The Boston Herald of May speaking of this dinner said: The most-interesting incident that occurred at -this dinner -was the per- haps 'first official' statement made of the -manner in; whichv-Lord. Beacons- field was -able to carry, through what one of the most dramatic and financially successful exploits in his public career. -The purchase'from the khedive of 'Egypt of the -shares which that sovereign held- in the Suez Canal company. This was -the- work of Mr. Green-wood, and may Tje said to have a part of his journalistic career, in' that through him the British -gov- ernment was able to p'urchase for canal shares which. now have "a value of and which .bring in to the British treas- ury an annual income of about Told Foreign Secretary Mr. Greenwood heard wthen at din- ner one night In London that the khe- dive of Egypt was in a strained finan- cial condition and was endeavoring to negotiate in France for the sale of the shares 'that he held in the Suez canal. On his return home that even- ing he immediately wrote a note to Lord Derby, then foreign secretary of Krigland, saying that he feed news of great importance which he imagined Lord Derby already knew, but which he would like very much to discuss with him, and stated that for that purpose.he would 'be at the foreign office at 10.30 the next morning. He found, however, that the Eng- lish secretary of foreign affairs had heard nothing of this proposed sale, and -because he had not received re- ports from his official representatives in Egypt was disposed to doubt its accuracy. He realized that if the French came into possession such J MONEY MONEY For small and large capital we have property to sell which willmake you money while you are sleeping.

He said that he would instantly telegraph to Cairo a despatch which would bring the facts wihen its reply was received the next day. When the reply came to hand it was that unknown to the English representative in Egypt, ne- gotiations for a sale of these shares were in progress, and that if the Eng- lish government proposed to enter the competition its representatives would need to have in hand for immediate use the sum of It was a subject that it was thought decidedly unwise to .bring to tihe attention of parliament -before it was consummate ed. Through negotiations with the Hothchilds, who were asked to pro- vide the money without security, and to keep the matter an entire secret, the need means were obtained. No Compensation Mr. Greenwood was closely associ- ated with the negotiation, and was looked upon as one holding in this respect a species of semi-official posi- tion. -In less than 10 days the trans- action was completed, and on the day previous to its public announcement Lord Derby sent for the editor oir the Pall Mall Gazette and said to him .that as he had been the one who had sug- gested -the idea and had 50 potently j assisted in carrying- It through, he had REAL ESTATE FIRE7NSURANCE Money to loan on improved city property and farm lands.

This Mr. Greenwood considered it undesir- able to do, and cht next morning the newspapers throughout England pub- lished the news, which received the people with absolutely un- qualified approval. A day or two later he was request- ed to call upon the foreign secretary, and wnen there Lord Derby said: we have done the job. I think i j it will do." To this interrogatory Mr. I Greenwood replied that he did not want anything but the satisfaction of j having done something for the coun- try and the administration. His fel- low journalists and others who assem- bled to do him honor in -his old age were in entire accord in their belief that this was characteristic of the man, and that as a journalist he was not only willing to "srfomi service for his country, but to do it under conditions which brought him ir no persona! return, either in emol- uments, or official, or evert newspaper recognition.
