We regret that in mentioning those
who were present at the swearing in of
Sir Alfred Moloney on Tuesday we
onmiitted to mention the names of the
Hon Eugene Cipriani, and of Mr E J
Scott; but the crowd of spectators and
the inconvenience of the accomodation
provided for reporters must be our
plea in excuse. We also omitted to
meution that the Consuls and the
Committee of the Chamber of Com Commerce
merce Commerce afterwards called upon His
Excellency, when the latter presented
the following address : -* !1 His Excel Excellency

with much interest of the success
which has attended your able adminis administration
tration administration of the island of Grenada and
is sanguine that the same happy
results will be achieved by you in
Tr ni ht 1 Here, as in Grenada, agri agriculture
culture agriculture and commerce are closely
allied, aud upon the prosperity of
both the colony is mainly dependent
The Chamber is, therefore, glad to
acknowledge that the Government

opinion such proposed legislation as
might directly, or indirectly, affect

A DANGEROUS ATTEMPT.
Ramdas, an Fast Indian shopkeeper at
California, was charged by Sergt. Rock of
the Railway Department, with attempting to
convey fireworks on the Railway on Tu esday
last, without having given information of the
same as required by Railway Regulations.
It was stated by complainant that some of the
fireworks were exploded on the step of a
carriage, the defendant having pleaded
guilty through ignorance, His Worship said
it was the first case of the kind which had
come before him and he would accept the
defendant’s excuse of ignorance in mitigation
of the penalty which was very heavy. De Defendant
fendant Defendant was fined £‘i or 1 month.
A RUTTER RIOT.
John Rodrigue?, Joseph Francis, Manoel
Diaz, John Gomez, Francis Gomez, David
Leach, Charles Christian and John Holder
(shopkeepers and shop-clerks) were charged
by Corporal Farris with being guilty of
riotous behaviour on Tuesday night last at
First East Street. Mr. J. Ainsley Lassalle
appeared for the defendants and stated that
as the result of certain recent prosecutions
for alleged breach of the Food and Drngs
Ordinance and in which certain shop-keepers
had been fined, his clients among others had
combined and had signed an agreement be between
tween between them. One of these parties in defiance
of the agreement signed by them, had been
guilty of selling butter by retail, with the
result that his clients being highly indignant
had resented to the wrong measure. The
matter of recent prosecutions however, was
now engaging the attention of the Chamber
of Commerce, and he felt sure that if His
Worship would adopt his suggestion of
binding over the parties to keep the peace,
the offence would be met. He would also
assure him that his clients were now alive to
the fact that it was a wrong measure adopted
by them in behaving as they had, and a
similar offence would not be committed.
In conclusion Mr Lccsalle referred to the
existence of similar union." in larger places
for the purpose of meeting certain grievances.
Ilis Worship said he abominated the use of
“ Trade Unions.”
lie liked to see men standing on their own
opinions and not depending on the opinion
of others, ile felt sure that if these people
had drawn attention in the proper manner
and to the proper source, to any grievance
which they felt: the matter would have been
considered by the Government. The measure
adopted was certainly a wrong one and
brought about great trouble. In view of the
circumstances however, he would order the
defendants to give their own bond of £o to
keep the peace for one year, and would warn
them, as well as ask them to extend the in information
formation information to other shopkeepers, that if a
similar offence occurred, the parties would
not, be as leniently dealt with.
ALLEGED ILLICIT RUM-SELLING.
Manoel McKay was charged by Detective
Sergt. Holder, with being in the possession
of a quantity of spirituous liquor at his house
in Charlotte street on the 17th ultimo, for
the purpose of selling, and not being pos possessed
sessed possessed of a license for the sale of same, Mr.
Gaston Johnston [defended.
The facts for the prosecution briefly stated
are, that from information received a warrant
was executed on the defendant's premises on
the date mentioned and a half bottle con containing
taining containing rum was found on a table in his room
along with glasses. Besides this, the com complainant
plainant complainant had observed before executing the
warrant, a number of persons entered the
premises, and saw defendant hide several
bottles along with a certain quantity of
money between a uiatrasse.
In the absence of two witnesses for the
prosecution, the complainant asked His Wor Worship
ship Worship to allow the case to stand down until
half past one o’clock in order for them to be
present.
His Worship replied that this was the first
application of the kind which had been made
to him, and he would have it understood
once and for all, that unless the Police were
ready to go on with cases which had been
postponed, on the day fixed for the resumed
hearing, dismissed they would be : as he
would not have the publics’ time wasted as it
had been in the past. Ihe police must be
ready to go on with their cases after having
obtained postponments.
Subsequently an application for warrants
to attest the two witnesses was made by
Sergt. Instructor Ward who stated that the
witnesses had been summoned to appear at
10 o’clock yesterday morning but had failed
to attend.
Mr Johnston objected to this application
and suggested that it was the duty of the
Police to assure themselves that their wit witnesses
nesses witnesses were present before proceeding with

tion application for warrants.
His Worship thought the adjournment
would not prejudice the case in any way, and
eventually the application for warrants was
granted ; on the evidence that the witnesses
had been cited. The case was fixed for hear hearing
ing hearing on Tuesday next.
A charge for the above offence Wits also
preferred by Constable McSween agaiust
Manoel Mercedo who was defended by Mr A

that the liejuor found on defendants’ premises
was for the purpose of christening a newly
built house. The case was dismissed.
AN HABITUAL CRIMINAL.
Nathaniel Green was charged by Constable
Daniel, with conveying a basket of sweet oil
sometime last week suspected to have been
stolen. Defendant who had 12 previous con convictions,

excuse offered for his possession of Ae oil,
was that he had “picked it up around the
Savannah.”

This condition is of many grades
of severity; being sometimes
so slight as to induce a mild
chronic feebleness, and then (es (especially
pecially (especially in young men and
women) it may, and frequently
does, becomo tho exciting cause
of some rapid disease, which
ends life without arousing a
suspicion of the real source in
which it arose. The blood, in
these cases, is thin and pale,
the Bkin pallid, there is a ten tendency

Debility and loss of appetite and

THOKSDAY, f-ru DISC It 1900
A BKKIOUB MATT HR
Thjc question of population as being
the source of their labour supply,
must neoessarily always boos the
highest importance to all agricultural
countries, however fully or high y
cultivated And if so, surely the
question is of still g.eatcr moment m
a colony such as ours, where there
are of acre? of virgin soil

i still uncleared and uncultivated
| That the ever present need of a
larger popPlation to maintain and
extend the present cultivated area of
the colony has not beeu overlooked,
either by the Government or the
people of the colony, is evidenced by
our elaborate system of coolie immi immigration
gration immigration But although immigration
may be the most ready, aud to some
extent, the surest means of attaining
the object sought, yet it is not the
only means of so doing ; or perhaps,
we should rat ,er say that without
the adoption of other means, the
ultimate success of immigration may
be greatly delayed, if not seriously
impaired.
We all know the old story of th«
Irishman who, in order to lengthen
his blanket, cut a piece otf the top of
it and sewed it on to the bottom;
and this is practically what this
colony has been doing in this matter
of population- For while annually
introducing a large number of immi immigrants
grants immigrants from India we have been pass passing
ing passing by unnoticed and uncared for, the
heavy drain on our own native born
population, occasioned by the exces excessive
sive excessive mortality among children-l'hai
this is by no means the “mare's nest \
which some may think, will appear
when we state, that of the children
born in any given year, fifty par cent
die before they reach the age of 10.
It is clear that if this terrible rate
ot mortality among children cannot
be checked, immigration, with all its
attendant expense, must be continued
in perpe ’uum and this raises the ques question
tion question whether this excessive juvenile
mortality is or it not a preventable
one—ln order to BDswer that question
it will be necessary to consider the
circumstances under which it arises as
well aa some as the probable causes
that lead up to such serious and sad
results —As is well known our climate
is particularly favourable to the health
and development of children under 10
yeara of age ; most of the diseases ot
childhood, auch as measles hoopiug hoopiugcough,
cough, hoopiugcough, chicken-pox Ac are of a much
milder type here than in England,
while that drsaded scourge Scarlet
Fever, is quite nnknown.
In our opinion, the three chief
cauaeu of the excesaive mortality
among children in this colony are -
Ist Neglect by Parents, 2nd Un Unsuitable
suitable Unsuitable food aud improper feeding,
3rd 111-treatment on the part of
parents and others acting in that ca capacity
pacity capacity In regard to the first, of
these eases the ncglfct of the fathers,
i« to a great extent due to tho loose
and in many cases shifting relation relationship*
ship* relationship* that to the disgrace of the colony
usurp, in so large a number of oases,
the legitimate family ties : The
neglect of the mothers is, save
in very rare caaes, dee, as a rule,
to their occupations requiring long
daily absences from home during
which their unfortunate little oues
are either locked up in the room,
which it their only apology for a
home, or left to the tender (?) care of
some relative or neighbour.
The existence of the second cause
is so generally well known, as to re-

quire no further explanation It has
been admitted to be a fertile ’cause
of mortality among children by
all the leading Medical men of the
colony, including tho late Eir L A A
do Verteuil, who specially referred
to in his work on Triuidad-Tlie third
but by no means the least of the exis *
ting eauses of so many deaths, espec especially
ially especially among the children of the work working
ing working classes, is the ill-treatment to
which these children are olten subjec subjected.
ted. subjected. This too, Isjclearly traceable to
the relationships which so largely
prevail among class of our
population : -We will take aa an ex example
ample example of this cause the following
every day occurrence, The mother is
a washer, anu out of her hand earned
wages has to provide food and clothes
not only for hersolf and ohild but
perhaps also for a lazy idle lout
of a fellow, who stands in tho
nomiuul relationship of husband
and fa her of her child—she is full of
worry and eare and she is hard at
work over the wash-tub, when her
child says or does something that tires
her temper, at no time, a very mild one;
at once she looks around and seizes the
first tl’'” it un old umbrella handle ora broken
stave of some old barrel—and there
with be-labourithe child ; later ou she
finds the child is always complaining ;
- she has already forgotten ail about
the thrashing which ha' been tk*
cause ofher child’s illness; but aha
tries her best and doctors the little
one, either actordiugly to her own or
some neighbour’s notion of what it is
suffering from—and so bit by bit the
young life ebbs away —and the d«2*;«
is duly registered most probtbly as
“ ruiraomu*’, or '• teething” and one
more child-grave is added to the large
number that dot the cemetery.
We have in the foregoing remarks
tried our best to explain why one half
of tho children born in this colony die
before reaching 10 years of age Whet Whether
her Whether this excessive mortality can be
reduced and if so, what are likely to
prove the most succesiful means of
doing so, are much too important
questions to be discussed within the
remaining space at om disposal - and
must therefore be deferred to another
opportunity.
Ora selection of the subject for tho
above leader was suggested to us by
the article on the ill-treatment of
children which appeared in our issue
of Sunday last. That articlo was in
French and written in the serio-comic
style so well known to all those who
are acquainted with French newspapor
writing. To some of those, who ore,
although good French scholars,
not au cou Y 'tnt of the style
of modern French press writers,
the article in question may
have appeared a somewhat light
and ilippent manner of dealing with a
serious subject; but the object that
such articles are intended to serve, is
to draw marked attention to some
serious evil, and to French readers
their very exaggeration serves to do
this quite as thoroughly as the solid
and logical articles of the Times or
Saturday Review does to English
reade-s.
