It is understood to be treaty of allianco, offensive and de fensive. The draft of such a treaty was made several years ago by France, but for some reason .Russia would never assent to it. This new treaty, whatever its terms may be, is probably intended to be an offset to the triple alliance be tween Germany, Austria and Italy, It is also stated that as an outward manifestation of the friendship be tween the two nations, the Czar has conferred , a highly-valued de coration on the French President The conclusion of the treaty is re garded as a victory for the repub lic, which has been notably weak in the field of foreign relations, and must add greatly to her prestige in .European politics. THE WORLD'S FAIR, CHICAGO. The Commissioners of the World's Fair, or, as it is sometimes termed, Columbian Fair, in Chi cago, appear to be at work in csrnest,the representatives of everv state striving with the others for the best site and endeavoring to secure the largest state appropria tion. A second assessment of 820 on the capital stock of the exhibition was forwarded to every stock holder early this month and their determination to make the Fair a fluccess is shown in the promptness of their remittances. The Senators and Representatives who compose the committee from the Massachusetts Legislature have started for home intending to ask for an appropriation of 8100,000 to begin with but hoping to get double that sum eventually. Senator Fassett of New York has worked hard to get a favor able report on a bill approaching $200,000 for a state display. The Senate at Albany passed the vote ou the 6th inst. Work has been commenced on tho exposition building in prepara tion for the Southern California fruit exhibit to open on the 12th mat. The .National Commission at Chicago decided at its final session on the 4th mst. that it would not tolerate any more delay on the site queetion. Local interests that bavo been endeavoring to upset tho plans for Jackson Park and bring back many of the big build ings to the lake front received due notice that such an attempt would not receive the endorsement of the National Commission, and several of the stronger members of the national organization almost suc ceeded in securing a resolution that tbe local board would not be allowed even to put up the fine arts display on the lake front, but wero in favor of holding the board down to the strict letter of its last expression to the efl'ect that all the exposition buildings should be at Jaekson Park.

The statute is made of bronze, is nine feet high and will stand on a granite pe aestai. V Calcutta, April 6. If the indi caiious are correct, verv serious trouble is brewing in India for the spirituous liquor without a license dealer in liquors, but the license of said Brown is not produced in evi dence. Under the statute you must find the defendant guilty." The statute referred to is Section 35 of an Act concerning the sale of spirit uous liquors, found at page 699 of the Compiled Laws, viz., "In all proceedings against any persons for selling or allowing to be sold anv British forces. Emboldened by the success of the Manipuris, who recently crushed the Ghoorka es- c ;,t accompanying Chiet Commis sioner Quinton in his efforts to set tie disputes among rival chieftains in Assam, the Miranzai in the Ko- hat lerritory, a district of Pesha wur, a division of the Punjab, have risen in arms, attacking the British troops along the whole length of their lines. The attack is beinrr pusned so vigorously that strong reiniorcements navft riAAn hnen: ediy despatched to the front, f uir details as to this uorisinf? ham been withheld by the British auth orities here. In addition to tho Miranzi trouble telegrams from Rangoon announce that the Haku Chins have laid in ambush in favor such person shall be deemed to be unlicensed unless he shall at the hearing of the case produce his license." Against this positive stat ute prescription, the counsel for the defendant cites Act which is Chapter 28 of the Session Laws of 1S90 which requires all persons holding a license ror any class of business to keep it exposed to view in some prominent place on the licensed premises, un der penalty of a fine. We are of opinion that it would not be a com mon sense construction of these laws to hold that a licensee should .not oho tifn licenser down 'rrom its place in his store and carrv it into f!nnrt. when the exhibition of it there is re quired in his defense upon a charge of misdemeanor in selling without such license. In the possible case of his being prosecuted under the latter statute, it would ho a rftftunn- n Innu ! i a 4-! - I r 1 . .

Tho column, however, returned the enemy's fire with such effect that the British force was enabled to retreat from the dangerous position into which it had beon led, and thus escaped total annihilation. biMiA, April 6th.

The objects of the two statuteo are not inconsistent but conenrrpnt. namely in both cases to shew that a party is carrying on business undr a license. This instruction of the Court was thorefore correct, and upon this alone the verdict miszht havo hpon sustained. But the other Ttnsitinn taken by the defense should be dis cussed and settled in this case. lhe counsel for the Crown r. : 'i the control of the licensee. The pen alty of the bond may be forfeited if the licensee shall be convicted of felony, perjury or other infamous offense or of any offense against or violation of the revenue laws or of any other offense under the statute concerning licenses which involves forfeiture. It is plain that the license permits the dealer to do the business lor which he is licensed only at the place of business which is designated, if this police super vision is to be maintained. May not such dealer upon the order of a customer resident in an other part of the kindom sell for cash or upon credit and forward or ship the goods to him? There is a statute especially appli cable to this, and restricting it Chap. 67 of the Session Laws of 1888, which is entitled An Act to Better Prevent Illicit Traffic in Spirituous Liquors, Sections 2 and 3 whereof entirely control the particular case at bar. Section 2 provides that no licensed peddler, trader or store keeper clerk or employee, shall for ward to any other person any order for the purchase of spirituous li quors to be shipped or sent to or for the use of any other person than himself. Aud Section 3 provides that "it shall be unlawful for any per son not bnng a licensed dealer in spirituous liquors or a common car rier of goods to receive into or have in his possession custody or control at any port outside the city of Hono lulu, any spirituous liquor with in tent to sell, transfer or dispose of such spirituous liquor or any part thereof to any other person or per- t wuutr mis legislative con struction of the intent and scope of the dealer's license under which the aeiendant sought to Drotect himsAlf. any snch agency for the extenhion of the business of a dealer's license nas peen made illegal by statute, ana not only sales, but the receipt of vrucrs ana transfer and delivery of Bpiiituous liquors by an agent are uiaue uiegai acts.

Z. if Uaspar delivered this kef? of wine to the Japanese in Hilo and collected the money for it then, that is a sale within the meaning of the law, and any license to Mr. Frank Brown does not protect defendant. And the defendant asked for t.h fol lowing instruction, " If the jury find mat at tne time of tbe sale of the Keg of wine to the Japanese, the de fendant was the servant of a licensed dealer, having no interest in the sale and delivery except as such servant and that the defendant in the course ply their speed will be largely "t u; ' i""""18 ?OQrse reduced.

There is some confusion of lang uage in the latter instruction. The first part of it imports that the de fendant admitted that he had sold the keg of wine. He does not admit mncu. ne does not claim that under a spirit dealers license for nonoiuiu branch stores can be main tained or that persons can .Q .-. thorized or employed by the licensee. at oiuer piaces than his licensed place of business, to make sales, un der the protection of his license, of soia, cnarged or consigned ; generally to such agent or servants. ne may say mat sales so made would be in plain contravention of the intent and effect of a "dealer's spirit license." These licenses are among those which are subject to special police restriction. They are issued for a designated locality. They are restricted by the high terms of a payment of five hundred dollars and of a bond in the sum of one thousand dollars. It is pro vided that no part of the liquor may be drank on the premises nor upon any contiguous premises in a house directly or indirectly under i If the great boldness of Ameri can designers is really based upon sound judgment, we need not re gret it.

Few people can form a definite idea of what is involved in the ex pression, "An inch of rain." An inch deep of water on the surface of an acre of land will weigh 220, 000 pounds, or 100 tons.
