During the pest year in Boston only
1,318 licenses were grautedl for thme ple
of distilled liquors, as ag'ainst 1,535 in
Lbe previous year. On the otherhand,
the number of places licensed to imell
only malt liquors and wine rose fronm
56 to 236. Thus, while the whole

Another mile-stone has been passed
in the ps-ogess of the suita against
Archbishop Purceillof Cincinnati. The
United States circuit court has eis,.
ad the decision .1 the district court,
which was that thearchbishop did not
own the churches, but held them in
trust, and that the trust property
could not be held for the archbishop's
personal debt.; but that where the
money of the creditors could be traced
into any particular church that prop
erty can be taken. This deciuion yields
the creditors very little money, and
they willitake the caseto the United~
States supreme court forlfinal decislon.
Athlaemeeting of the Americaa
society of civil engineesr, a paper was
read on the -Preservation of Forests,"
in which it was said the supply of white
pine in the U'nited States is certain to
be exhausted at the end of the century
and probably in Canada, also, of
southern pines at the present rates of
consumption. There in stated to be
150 years' supply o f ipruce and hem
lock east of the Mississippi. There is
probably twenty-live years' eupply of
hard wood. The supply of black wal
nutand ash lsarapldly exhausting. The
supplies of other kinds of woods are,
however, so abundant that a famine
cannot be pre4iled. When tres-plant

turn is mads on the investment,
At Howell, Mich., the trial of a man
who Bired into a party of men engaged
in acharivari about the house of a
newly married couple, whereby one of
the hoodlums was killed, has just ter
minated in a failure of the jury to con
vict. The telegraphic dispatches tell
of a similar case in Illinois. awhere a
brother of the bride fired twice at the
charivari party, and killed one of
them. He will probably be acquitted;
at least it is hardly to be expected
that any jury will convict him. Pope
lar feeling is such that every person
who joins in a charivari, or "horning,"
as the rural roughe cail it, takes his
life in his hand; and if he is shot by
the victim of the insulting hubbub, a
jury will he almost certian to take the
view that it served him so nearly right
that the shooter will not beconvicted.
