CASTRO TO RETURN TO HIS COUNTRY Will Accomplish His Mission Even By a Revolution Denies Being Fabulously Wealthy Tho decision in the case of L.. B. Cardston vs. the Town of Cardston has been handed by Mr. Justice Stuart of the Supreme Court. Mr. "Young, appealed to quash, the -ii- by-law levying a heavy tax on pool tables. _.-_-. This by-law was recently passed by tlu -municipal council of the town of Cardston and was objected to .by Messrs. Brown and Young who were conducting a pool hall in the license for pool tables ,vas raised fron.- to. for tlie first table and from to for the second table It is interesting to note that towns of Eaymond and Magrath al-io have high licenses for pool tabl- es and just what effect this decision will have on them can hardly be told at the present time. Judge Stuart in. his judgment sajs: "Upon consideration I have con- cluded that the by-law in question hero -is prohibitive and was intended to so. So sudden and enormous a .jump from. to is to my rni-.d extremely significant. The form, er sum seems, from the evidence, to about (he average fee ;chargsd in tho part of the Province with the exception of one or two towns where, it may be, the -ame intention prevailed.

I have to come to my own con- clusion upon, what .are rather ques- tip-rs of fact, viz., Ts the by-law be- fore me prohibitive and was it In- .tended to be so?
