HEAR N OPIl CASES CP POLICE Five Ciiarges Laid-One Withdrawn-Old Hands at the Game Police court this morning resembled San Francisco's Chinatown while the �)l)lum~ases arising out of Tuesday night's raid were being heard. There vero five charges laid, these being against Quong Sang, for behift the keeper of a disorderly house, to wit: an opium den; San Kee, Quan Wing and I.oo Pow for smoking or having opi\un in their possession, and against Won Lung for obstructlug a peace clflcor in dlscliargo of iii.s duties. Tile case against Quong Sang did not 'go very I'nr before City .Silioltor Ball, who was proseoiting, ran against a snag. It appears that the building In which the raid was made belongs to the Quong Sang Co. und that Quong Sang alone could not be charged with the olfonce. The charge was therefore withdrawn. The case Qnaii Wing was then proceeded ..with. The defence, conducted by C. R Harris, admitted tiiat the accused had been smoking opium, hut pleaded tlial he was nii old hand at the game and could not get along without it. Qyan has been smbltlng opium tor years.

Toronto, .March 11.-It Is an even chance that war-time prohibition in ' Ontario will go into effect without a referendum. From sources closely In, touch with the government. It was learned last evening that there had been a leaning on the part of the cabinet to expedite the temperance policy and the question is belpg *Ber-lously considered of dispensing with the vievv of the people during war time and of bringing in prohibition for that period, with a vote after peace is declared. There is no doubt that a week ago the intention of the government was to have two votes, one now and another after tho war. The view prevailed that as present circumstances were extraordinary, (he electorate should have a chance ot revising its attitude. In the last tew days, however, there has been a growing sentiment that If prohibition must be. It had better come almost right away with notice to tlio "trade" to dispose ot Its stock in a given time, raLlier than have the people In the throes ot an embittered campaign In such a period as the present, with the soldiers' votes and everything else. This feeling has gained such strength that tiie cabinet is said to be engaged In shaping its policy along this lino. Questioned Friday, Premier Hearst, Hon. 1. B. Lucas, Hon. FIndlay -Mac-DIarmid smilingly refused to say anything that would commit them un the subject.
