PROHIBITION IN CANADA.
The Parliament of Canada parsed
a local option prohibitory liquor law
in 1878. Tor the first four years
after its pabsagc it was only availed
of to any extent in t,li8 Maritime
Provinces, which already had in
great part outlawed the liquor trnllle
by license laws so severe that licenses
could not be obtained. Demands of
the temperance party for absolute
prohibition having been made upon
the Dominion Parliament, the reply
of.the politicians in effect was that
until the people showed they desired
prohibition by adopting and enforc
ing the local option laws (besides
the Dominion Act there were Pro
vincial local option measures lying
iniopcrated) it would by premature
to enact national prohibition. The
Dominion Temperance Alliance,
therefore, at its annual fccssiou in
January last determined to institute
a general campaign for the adoption
of the Canada Tcmpciance Act. The
result has bcun that, in pitched bat
tles of press and platform, fifteen
counties and one city had up to
November J.st adopted or sustained
the Act, mostly with largo majori
ties, while in only two counties was
the Act defeated. Campaigns were
in progress and proposed, at that
date, in seven cities and about forty
counties. Since the passage of the
Act there have been lifly-threo con
tests., and the Act has been success
ful in foity-four, the total majority
for it being about 20,000. It speaks
well for the cause of prohibition that
no constituency has repealed the
Act, for which an oppoi Utility is
afforded at the expiration of three
years. This the moic remarkable,
as the measure was practically a dead
letter in the constituencies that first
adopted it, on account of continued
litigation ovci its constitutionality,
which was at last confirmed by the
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council, the highest court in the
British Kinpirc. Canada is evidently
tired of the sway of strong drink, as
some of the counties that have
adopted prohibition not long ago
bore a bad imputation for drunken
ness. EDITORIAL NOTES.

It is to be hoped the Democratic
Government will not bo misled into
opposition to the treaty with this
country, at the instance of Kastcrn
sugar refiners, who moy regard that
the only way to break the Sprockets
monopoly. An article in the New
- York World gives token of danger
to the treaty from that cause. If
ever it was necessary that American
legislators should be thoroughly in
formed regarding the treaty and its
. reciprocal advantages, it is at this
juncture. 'The literature that has
recently emanated from the ofliec of
the .San Francisco Mercunit, which
is being widely disseminated among
the public men of the Union, cannot
fail to have good effect. As Sp eckles
is, however, the great bugbear of
the Eastern refiners, nnd he is well-
known to be ono of the Mcrchunl'a

be necessary to rolnforcc the offorls

At St. Louis a rumor is current
that tho Belcher Sugar Pellning
Company, the oldest in the West, is
financially etlibairasscd. The con
cern suspended Thursday, but claims
that it can pay every dollar of its
liabilities. The general depression
in business is given as the catiso of
the snspensisn. It is said that there
is an over-production of sugar. The
liabilities will reach 700,000.
a xr.w voniv vti:v.
The New York World of Nov.
18th says : The sugar trade is pass
ing through one of those prolonged
states of stagnation into which the
market sometimes settles and out of
which it is so dilllcull to revive it.
Prices aro lower than they have been
before in thirty or foity years, and
while the members of the trade pro
fess to believe in a revival of busi
ness, there are as yet few signs of
improvement. Still this is the dullest
season of the year and, as Usual,
many refineries arc closing tempo
rarily for repniis ami improvements.
Several have done so in Philadelphia
and Boston. The causes of the
stagnation aie several. Cuban
planter have been in great finaucial
straits and many have failed, and
this has forced out great deal of
sugar at very low prices. Then a
war has been going on in this country
between refiners and importers,
which has caused much depression.
Formerly the former purchased their
supplies of the latter, but for a year
or two past they have gone into the
business of importing directly, and
this has been gradually crowding
out importers. Several great houses
which formally did a large business
in impoiting sugar scarcely touch,
the article now. This .competition
has, of course, depressed prices,
which have declined about two cents
per pound in about a year. Clans
Sprockets' llawaiiau sugar monopoly
of San Francisco has caused much
trouble to Kastcrn refiners, and
determined efforts have been made
to secure the abrogation of the treaty
with the Hawaiian Islands, allowing
the free entry of sugar grown in that
country, it being considered unfair
to Kastcrn refiners who have to pay
a duly on their importations from
Cuba. But Claus Sprockets lias
been a power with Republican Ad
ministrations, nnd all efforts to
overcome the monopoly have failed.
Spreckols has been able to ship sugar
as far Kast as St. Louis and under
sell Kastcrn refiners. It was reported
iu tho sugar trade yesterday that
this monopoly was showing signs of
disruption, and if this is true, there
will be much rejoicing among Kast

About ten minutes past 12 o'clock
an alarm of flic was rung from tho
different engine houses. It proved
to bo at tho Knwaiahao Fctnalo Se
minary on King street. One of tho
girls, on going up stairs to the
dormitory in the now building, saw
flames. She immediately informed
Miss Mnlone, one of the teachers,
Miss Alexander the principal being
away nt the time. Miss Mnlono set
the girls to woik with buckets of
water, and iu a short time they had
put out the fire, which was begin
ning to make considerable headway.
The fire department arrived promptly
on lime, but their sci vices were not
required. The fire started in a closet
adjoining one of the older girls'
bedroom, in the now building which
was erected some eighteen months
ago. In the closet were the girl's
clothes. The door of the closet, as
well as the bedroom door and the
woodwork above, was considerably
charred, about the only damage
done, and covered by insurance.
Miss Malone does not know how tho
fire originated, but rather thinks thnt
some of the older gills have violated
the rules by hnvhig matches iu their
rooms. Some damage was proba
bly done by thu water used in
putting out the fire. It is fortunate
the fire did not occur in the night
time, when all the girls would have
been in this building.
About ten minutes after two a
false alarm brought the brigade and
populace out in full fdrce to tho
same quarter of the city.
