The man who has applied for this legislation is a British sub ject, although he may have a German name. He has a patent on a process to dealcoholize beer, take away the kick and leave the flavour. There was no strenuous opposition in the Committee on Private Bills, but owing to the current of the war he seems to have lost his rights, and he merely asks to be reinstated. He wants to be able to furnish the world with beer without the kick, and the committee felt unanimously that he ought to have that privilege.,
Bill reported, read the third time and passed.
