arrived at West's bedside the doctor saw
the man was dying and beyond the reach
of human skill. Before 8 o'clock that
evening Wert was dead. Judge Blake

the man be buried at Tygh at the
county's expense. It is said that the
doctor pronounced the man's death to
have resulted from acute pneumonia.
It is said he was complaining when he
left here. The long, cold ride t Tygh
undoubtedly hastened bis death if it did
not causa it.

"Toronto lias soma of the best paved
streets on the continent, but the method
of conducting the business affairs of the
city is what commends itself to the
casual visitor," says a recent visitor to
that city. "For instance, their system
of controlling the saloon business is
about tierfect. There are about 160 sa
loons in Toronto, and that is the limit
prescribed by city ordinance. These sa
loons are regularly licensed, and the
only way to obtain a license is to pur
chase a business already established.
The license itself is about $900 per year.
When I left Canada, the sum of $4000
i was offered a saloon man for his license.
I don't know whether he concluded to
accept it or not. The taloonx sre regu
lated in such a manner that they are
the most orderly of places. They close
at 11 "'clock on all night except Satur
day when they close at 6 o'clock. This
is done in order that the workingman
will not spend bis weekly wages for
drink. When they are closed there is no
back door entrance. They are shut
tighter than a drum, and a man who
opens his saloon stands a chance to have
his license revoked. At a valuation of
$4,000 he can hardly afford to run the
