Charles Bouvler inaugurated a series of four conferences on the after noon of November 16 th, at Stein way Hall by a brilliant 'resume' of the life and art of Pierre Lotl. M.

forking of the Liquor Act. Recently the Chief Secretary re quested tho Inspector-General of Police to obtain reports from his officers throughout the State regard ing the efficiency, of tlie amended liquor law from the police point of view. Accordingly instructions were issued to the superintendent of each police district in the State to furnish a report on the matter. The major ity of these are now to liand. In every instance the superintendents regard the new law in a favourable light. It has, in their opinion, effected a great improvement in the conduct oi hotels, especially in regard to tlia selling of liquor during pro liibitcd hourfe, and particularly on Sundays. It is asserted that , there is very little Sunday trading done now, as compared with what went ou under the old law. There has been a corresponding falling off in drunk-, enness, and, therefore, fewer convin tions for inobrity.

The Father of the Family laid down his paper and stirred his coffee. 'Very sad,' he said, 'very sad. Some carelessness, I suppose. My dear,' turning to his wife, 'you really must tell the cook not to burn the bacon like this, it is positively disgraceful.' 'I see the passengers were mostly on'.y onion-men,' said the Eldest Daughter, who had taken up the paper. 'By the way, mother, we haven't settled yet which hat I am to wear for the luncheon party.

Stead, just back from Rus sia (writes the 'Westminster Gazette' of last month) has much to say of the state of things there; and, though he insists as much as ever that he is 'an optimist— never a pessimist,' he has gloomy forebodings as to what may happen there unless things take a turn for the better very rapidly. He dis; cussed the political situation In Russia at great length with a representative of the 'Westminster Gazette,' and, after expressing the utmost satisfaction with the recent upheaval in Finland— I 'it was a delightful revolution,' he said, 'absolutely bloodless; everybody ^ did | just what they ought to have done'— he had much to say about the events of the moment in Russia which his opportunity of studying the matter from the outside makes valuable.

WANTED TO FINISH HIM. The gentleman who thrashed a 'strongly built costermonger' the other night (writes the'Westminster Gazette' of 12th November last) because he saw him kicking his wife will probably blush aY the compliment paid him by the Stratford magistrates for the good he did by stealth. The 'strongly built' man was charged with a brutal assault on his wife, and. he appeared in court with many outward and visible signs of having been badly knocked about him self. This was the work of the 'un- known,' who when he. saw the assault promptly set to work on the assailant. He mttst have enjoyed it because when a policeman came on the scene the avenger asked tor the man to be left alone for him to finish off. 'I was badly set about,' ' complained the prisoner, who evidently thought more of his own bruises than those which ht' Inflicted on his -wife. He got no sympathy from the magistrates, but only six months' impri sonment. The wife got a separation, and her unknown champion got c...
