The Evening Star: WITH WHICH ARE INCORPORATED The Evening News, Morning News, and Echo. THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 1886. For the cauie that lacks assistance, For the wrong that need* reaiaUnce, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do, The decision of Mr Justice Richmond on the powers of Licensing Committees is less important as affecting the reputed authority of the committees to cancel licenses almost at their discre&quot; tion than as a lucid and just dissertation upon the spirit in which they ought, in all cases, to administer the law, The issue upon which the case was tried is totally different from that which Mr Justice Gillies decided in favour of the committees.

In his Auckland address, Sir Julius Yogel predicted &quot; a most serious disaster throughout the colony&quot; if any cessation of public works took place; and that danger, which was then urged as a reason1 for drawing ujion the North Island Trunk Railway loan for gen...
