SANTA tRU£ NOTES.
( From a Corrttpondent.)
The new biudgb. —I» almost two
month* since the new bridge on the river
near the R,C. Church ha* bee i opened for
trattic. But what teems to be an oversight
on the part of the , tended superintended its building, is that the sides of its
immediate approaches are not guarded by
any sor of hand-rail or barricade; which
omission renders the place dangerous,
especially to children. It is not ye. too late
to have this remedied and thus save accidents.
Just here, the spot could be much improved
in appearance by trimming away a few or the
bamboos and other large trees which keep the
place always dark and damp.
Crops.—Although the proprietors are
taking fair pickings, yet the cocoa-crop is far
from what it should be at this season of the
year. They are, however, confident of a
change for the better in the near future.
Ecclesiastical. —The K.C. Church is in
great need of a bell, for which the Rev.
Father Noel 0.P., the tealous parish priest is
soliciting subscriptions. It is to be hoped
that the parishioners will rally round and ex extend
tend extend to him the assistance which he so truly
deserves for this laudable purpose.
IIesLTH —lhe health of the district seems
to be good. There is not much sickness,
and np to now, only one death has been regis registered
tered registered during thu quarter.
Post Orsica. —The want of a post ofhcc
in this place is most severely felt, borne
months ago the Postmaster Geueral was
written to on the subject by the principal in inhabitants,
habitants, inhabitants, but he slated in reply to their letter
that he could not bold out lire least hope of
better postal facilities in Santa Crus just yet.
At presant one loses considerable time to
travel from here to the post office at Bourg
MulatreHC (Lower Santa Crus). This office
is realty in the Santa Crus Ward but nearer
to tian Jaan than to this place, which teslly
requires it more.
Roads—lhe roads in thss district, nytin
tained by the St Ann's Local Road Board,
are being faitljr well attended to, A new
bridge is now being burlt on the Casparilo
River near the entrance of Mrs Kavanagh’s

Mr B J Baptist, the schoolmaster is laying

the Garden Estate Pasture. It was the first
time the Band performed in public which
doubtlessly accounted for the large crowd of
persons who followed the boys through the
district. On the savannah the boys were pUt
through a series of movements by their
Captain who was on horseback and very
creditable were they executed. The band
played a few lively matches and these were
done most satisfactorily, which, judging that
this part of the Company was organized just
five weeks ago, was beyond the expectations
of many. The boys were also inspected and
eventually Stuff Sergt. Ashe was given the
Ist prize for being the smartest looking lad
on parade ; Privates Victor and Norman took
the second and thinl prizes respectively. After
spending about an hour on the pasture, the
Company was taken back to the police station,

THE GOVERNMENT AND THE
PRESS.
iHf fact that, during his Govern Government
ment Government of the Bister Colony of Gre Grenada
nada Grenada Sir Alfred Moloney relieved all
“ Printing plant and material” from
the payment of import duty formerly
levied thereon, leads us to believe that
His Excellency recognizes the value of
a free Press , and appreciates the ser services
vices services rendered by it in the full dis discussion
cussion discussion of all public questions His
Exoelleucy is no doubt well aware of
the many difficulties that are insepar inseparable
able inseparable from West Indian Journa Journalism

lism Journalism generally, and the •* Daily”
portion of it more particula’ly ; he
may not, however, know how much
the prompt action of the Government
in all may be brought to
their notioe by the press serves to
encourage and sustain those who are
striving to do their duty honestly
and fearlessly, within thu well known
iimits ofEnglish Journalism by hold
iug the balance.faarly and equitably
betwecu the Government and people.
There has been but little of this very
necessary aid and encouragement
given to the Press of this colony
hitherto ; it has been too much the
fashion for officialdom to sneer at
and openly express their contempt
for any suggestions or complaints
emanating from the uewspapers. We
cannot unfortunately say that the
1 rcsb has beeu altogether blamelesg
for this statu of matters. But what
ever may have been the faults or fail*
ings of some newspapers of the past
they cannot be laid to the charge of
the Press of to-bay ; and wc trust
that we are about to enter into a new
and better ora in regard to Press
complaints aud suggestions ou mat matters
ters matters affecting the public welfare
Wc have been led to make the
following remarks , owing the
apparent diffidence that has boen
shown by * the authorities to the
“ Torpedo nuisance”, notwithstanding
the repeated complaints aud warnings
in regard thereto that have appeared
in the local Press and despite the
publication theiein of full details of
two more or less serious accidents
that have recently occurred in con connection
nection connection with the manufacture of these
dangerous explosives. We do not
consider that having drawn attention
to, and published abundant evidence
in support of, the existence of a public
nuisance or grievance, it is in any
sense obligatory on the Press to en enquire
quire enquire into and suggest a remedy there therefore.
fore. therefore. In oases where such a remedy
does not fall within the province of the
Law, the Press is, however, generally
willing and anxious to make any sug suggestion
gestion suggestion it can as to the euiedial mea measures
sures measures it coaaidera necessary ; but
where, as in the “ Torpedo nuisance”
the question at issue is a purely legal
one, we cannot admit that it falls
within the province of the Press to
enquire into, or suggest what Uyal
measures Would best secure the abate abatement
ment abatement of the nuisance. We cannot
however refrain from saying that to
the non-legal reader the powers given
to the Police by the Explosives Ordin*
ance 1884 seem more than ample to
enable them to deal with the nuisance
in question.
Under Section 2 of that ordinance
“ Au. Explosives ’’except‘'gunpowder
and any prescribed explosives” are
henceforth to be “ iucluded under the
term *' prohibited explosive” ; while
Bection 4 provides that any person
" who knowingly harbours, keept, or
“ conceals, or knowingly permits or
“suffers, or causes or procure* to be
‘ harboured, kept, or concealed any
“ prohibited explosive, or to whose
“ possession any prohibitive explosive
" knowingly comes shall be guilty of

“ a misdemeanor and liable to a pen pen-1
-1 pen-1 alty of Five hundred Pounds and to
“ be imprisoned, with or without hard
‘ labour, for a”y term uot exceeding
“ ten years :
and a sub-section thereto gives power powerto
to powerto any constable “to arrest without war
rant any person whom he ha» reason reasonable
able reasonable cause to suspect of commiting or
having committed any offence against
the said section, and detain him
j until he can conveniently be
brought before a Justice of the
Peace or other Magistrate. to
be dealt with according to law.” And
vet nothwithstandiug all the legal
powers given in the section above
quoted, these dangerous Torpedoes are
allowed not only to be manufactured
in private houses but to be publicly
exposed for tale in almost every shop
in town. If the keepinj for salo of
these undoubtedly dangerous
sives, yclept '* Torpedoes ’ be not
clear infringment of the above quoted
section, then in all verity. Lxwlikethe

At the Tunapuna police court on
Saturday last, his Worship Mr. L M.
Power, 8 J P, sitting as Coroner con concluded
cluded concluded the inquest iuto the fire which
almost completely destroyed the prem premises
ises premises of Mr John George at A rouca, on
the night of the 2bth of November last*
Mr. A E Hendrickson watched the
proceedings on behalf of George ; and
Mr Rust of the firm of Rust Trow Trowbridge
bridge Trowbridge and Co , was present on behalf
ol the Insurance Co The Coroner came
to the conclusion that the firs was the
result of a f looy by some person
or persons unknown though there
was no evidence strong enough
lor him to o drr a prosecution
of any ouo in particular; aud an
an open verdict was accordingly re returned
turned returned : his worship remark ng that
the proceedings would be seat to th*
Attorney General and Chief Inspector
of Police, upon whose decision thl
question of further investigati'n
would rest
Last week's issue of the “ Royal
Gazette” coutains a circular issued by
hie Excellency the acting Governor to
Heads of Departments of the Civil
Service; which though it is nowhere
expressly stated to be so, is evidently
intended to refer to the annual requisi requisition
tion requisition for stationery submitted to the
Printing Office. Ordinarily such a
purely departmental notice would be
of little interest to the public ; but we
venture to consider this one sufficiently
of a curiosity to merit some few obser observations
vations observations
The first paragraph very ;>rop«rly
requires the annual requisition to be
as complete and accurate as possible,
so as to avoid the necessity for sup supplemental
plemental supplemental ones ; any of such having,
(by the 2nd paragraph), to be sub submitted
mitted submitted with explanations to the Gov Governor

paragraph 8 informs officer* that they
will not necessarily get the full
amount they may ask for ! On what
principle will it be reduced? find

irresponsible party which cau:ed, in
