On motion the Council adjourned to
Jfonday, April 10,1893 at 8 o'clock p. m.
Wo learn from one of our English con
temporaries that "Lord Abinger has
purohased Treig and Iverlair, the high
land estates of Sir George Walker, which
he intends to convert from a sheep farm
into a deer forest."
Scotland was once a great deer forest,
but the men who then lived in Scotland
could eat the deer. As civilization ail
vanced the deer were replaced by sheep
and mixed husbandry, and the Scottish
6oil carried men. Sheep, however, were
moro profitable than men, and the Scotch
were deported to make room for them.
Now Lord Abinger, a lord of 1835 only,
and not even a Scotch lord, comes and
fires both the sheep and shepherds to
turn the land back to where it was 800
years ago. The shepherds of course will
follow some other avocation for which
they aye better fitted, but they will get
np food from the deer as of old.
In England the same progress may be
observed. There the cry was for a cheap
loaf. Farmers were assured that their
prosperity all went to the landlords. Now
landlords, farmers and laborers are all
ruined. Land that was under plow u
now turned into pasture, and the agri
cultural lalxrers go into east London to
iucre^so "the bitter cry of the London
poor." The time is coming when some
hard swearing, undervaluing importer
from New York will buy np Kent for
The Saloon Can Depend on Democrats.
Bon forts Wine and Spirit Circular
(Hew York) for Nov. 23 says: "The ex
traordinary result of the presidential
election that has just taken place is by
no means without importance to the
wine afid spirit trade. It was a phe
nomenal indorsement of a party that, in
its nationaj character at any rate, has
never feared to speak for personal liber
ty and to denounce all sumptuary legis
lation. The Republican party is not to
be depended on. For many years it has
catered strongly to the Prohibition ele
ment, and many of its leaders are open
in their denunciation of the wine and
"To the Republican party we owe the
prohibitory laws of Maine. ermont,
Iowa, Kansas and the Dakotas. To the
l)emocratic party we o\v e the defeat of
prohibition in Michigan. Texas. Tennes
see,Oregon, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts
and Rhode Island. In Grover Cleveland
this country will have a president who is
not only opposed to force bills and Mc-
Kinley bills, but to any attempts that
extremists might make to compel the peo
ple of this country to eat or drink accord
ing to formulas that a few wise men
might lay down. In a word, the verdict
of the people is favorable to our trade."
