Where is Sir Charles Hibbert 'J'tippcr today?
He is still teaching -the gospel of truth, honor and
righteousness in public life. His old friends are with him
still, and those who were taught to doubt him have renewed their trust in him. A thousand new friends have
gathered round him. He is one of thc lions of the hour
in British Columbia. In his mature years the prophecies
made by him of thc policies of McBride of many years ago
are all coming true. The machine, as he predicted, is
shattered under thc impact of its meeting with the aroused
consciences of the people. Sir Charles Hibbert's speech
did much to roll up the tremendous majority for Macdonald, the Opposition candidate ill Vancouver. There is
every prospect that thc next leader of the Conservative
Party���that is, the Conservative Party of oldtime���in this
Province of British Columbia will bc Sir Charles Hibbert

Old Gonzalo was placed in such a position that he could
appreciate thc meaning of "Free access to the land." His
shipwreck at sea drove its full force of meaning straight
home to the very core of him, and he exclaimed in an
agony of conviction: "Now would 1 give a thousand furlongs of sea f.,r an acre of barren ground.: long heath,
brown furze, anything." Why did Gonzalo hecome so
desirous to "grab" an acre ol barren ground; Was it that
he wanted it to sell or let or to "hold it up" until a city
was built around it? By no means. His interest in land,
at that critical point of his life, was not thc interest of
a would-be landlord or speculator, but of one who felt
tbe need of land for his own personal use. He wanted it
"to put it to its best use"���n. it for the purpose of levying

As Gonzalo's interest as a would-be user of a barren
acre was infinitely greater than his interest in it as a
would-be monopolist; so thc nation's interest in ihe best
use of the land, is infinitely greater than the combined
interests of its monopolists.

form such an important part of the Bowser machine.

Who said that Opposition was not a
the Province of British Columbia?'
Mr. Bowser's Minister, Hon. Mr. Tisdall, was defeated on Saturday night, and Mr. Bowser received the first
set-back in his career since 1896.
What happened on Monday morning?
Mr. Bowser made public the skeleton of his shipbuilding policy which he had refused to give to the people before.
He laid his shipbuilding card partly upon the table. Thus
the people are at least going to have some knowledge of his
shipbuilding legislation before it is rushed through the
house.
The people didn't have a chance'to pass upon the Mackenzie and Mann and the Pacific and Great Eastern frauds.
Legislation making these frauds possible was shot through
the house with the greatest secrecy.
But the threat of Opposition made Mr. Bowser climb
down from his throne and let the people in on his shipbuilding plans.
*    *    *    *
What happened on Tuesday morning?
Everyone knows that Bowser's machine has its root in
the saloon trade of this Province. From that quarter it
receives much of its nourishment,
All Tammany organizations thrive on the saloon trade.
Sir Richard McBride refused to make a statement on
Prohibition which was in anywise satisfactory to the Prohibition Movement.
Sir Richard was frank enough and manly enough to
tell the Prohibition Movement that he wasn't with them,
and that he wasn't prepared to promise to help them when
he intended in his heart to do otherwise.
Premier Bowser tried to ride both horses.
He played up to Prohibition and endeavored through
the agency of his machine to control the Prohibition Movement in Vancouver.
PREMIER BOWSER USED THE PROHIBITION
MOVEMENT IN VANCOUVER AS A BOGEY MAN
WITH WHICH TO SCARE SIR RICHARD McBRIDE
FROM OFFICE.
When the Prohibition Movement in this Province grew
to such a size that Bowser couldn't continue to control it, he
endeavored to "drop a monkey wrench in the machine" as
a certain non-partisan said���he endeavored to wreck the
Prohibition Movement.
But to return to what happened on Tuesday morning���
Premier Bowser, seeing Opposition arise from the Mainland, immediately decided that he WOULD MAKE A
DEATH-BED REPENTANCE ON THE SUBJECT OF
PROHIBITION.
FINDING THAT THE MEMBERS OF THE PROHIBITION MOVEMENT HAD HIM SIZED UP AND
WERE ON HIS TRAIL ��� FINDING THAT HE
COULDN'T FOOL THE PROHIBITION MOVEMENT ANY LONGER���PREMIER BOWSER THEN
GAVE OUT A STATEMENT THAT HE WOULD GO
ALMOST AS FAR AS MR. BREWSTER WENT
WHEN HE OUTLINED HIS POLICY NEARLY A
YEAR AGO.
Mr. Brewster said nearly a year ago: "I PLEDGE
MYSELF TO SUBMIT THIS QUESTION OF PROHIBITION TO THE PEOPLE BY A REFERENDUM,
AND I PLEDGE THAT THE LIBERAL PARTY IF
PLACED IN POWER WILL PROMPTLY ENACT
SUCH LEGISLATION AS THE PEOPLE MAY PASS
UPON."
Mr. Brewster further agreed to make Prohibition a
separate and distinct issue, the vote upon it to be separate
and apart from any other vote. He agreed not to mingle
Prohibition with any other questions. He desired that the
people express themselves upon Prohibition and that alone.
MR. BREWSTER LED IN HIS PROHIBITION
POLICY. BOWSER HAS WEAKLY ENDEAVORED
TO PARTLY IMITATE THE BREWSTER STAND.
Nevertheless Mr. Bowser has done well to come out as
far as he has. He, at last, has taken a stand. The election of Macdonald has forced him to take the people into
his confidence and to divulge his policies on at least two
issues.

Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper Appeals to People to
Bring Back Responsible Government in B.C.
Speaking at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver on
the eve of the bye-election last Saturday, February 26, Sir
Charles Hibbert Tupper, staunch and honored Conservative as he is, roused the citidens of Vancouver with a fiery
attack upon the "big little men."
In opening his address, Sir Charles said he was under
obligation to Mr. Macdonald for the opportunity, as a Conservative, of speaking to his fellow citizens. He "could not
find a place on a Conservative platform���he could not find
a place to tell the truth."
"Who are these whipper-snappers?" he asked.
"The Kaiser Williams of this province," he continued,
"rose in their little might and tried to read me out of the
party.
"Those puny men!
"But, thanks to God, there was a Conservative in 1909
sent for me���Sir Robert Borden���sent for me to go to my
native province and he read me in again.
"I am a staunch supporter of Borden. He not only
is a Conservative, but an honest man.
"That kind of man does not do for Victoria just now!
(Cheers.)
"If Sir Robert, to whom I owe
fealty and party allegiance, today
were in the powerful position of
Bowser, I would be just where I am
now���voting  for opposition!
"And why? I am no child! I believe in the British constitution and
in party rule, but imagine such a condition in the grand old country���such
a condition as we have here!
"Do you suppose in a by-election
they'd return a man for a government in absolute control?
"What a farce���all nodding as the
leader nods. Doing everything in
caucus!       What  better  than   Kaiser
rule?
Sir Charles then told about the
time the Conservatives were in the
minority and about a story they all
thought very funny then. It was
about an. old woman who kept chickens that loved her so much they ran
to her and put up their legs to be
tied.
"But that story tfoes not suit the
Conservatives now," he went on, and
the  crowd  roared.
Then, in a serious vein:
"We are attempting to govern a
province���a handful of people and an
empire as its extent goes.   An oppo-

or Please Go Easy
There's a railroad building in B. C,
From North Vancouver to the G. T. P.;
The name of this road is the P. G. E.,
Pat yets everything.
To look at this road, it is to smile,
Though out of it Pat will make his pile;
At 42,000 bones per mile,
For Pat gets everything.
It's as full of crooks as a blooming snake,
For he's paid by thc mile and he's wide awake,
The longer it is, the more he'll make
For Pat gets everything.
He has got his outfits by their throats,
He sells them their food, their hay and oats,
If they kick at thc price, he'll get tlieir goats,
For Pat gets everything.
If the work that's dime by the station men
Should happen to show a profit, why then,
The engineers just figure again,
So Pat gets everything.
No white man can get a job they say,
For the bohinks work for smaller pay
When their board is paid, they've a dollar a day,
For Pat gets everything.
It's the biggest steal in the land today,
And sensible men are beginning to say,
That McBride and Bowser are in the lay,
And Welch splits everything.
Now twenty a mile will finish it,
And twenty-two will be left to split,
So Bowser's Machine will have quite a bit,
If Pat splits everything.
In the meantime  Pat is getting the dough,
While the men who arc building the whole damn show
Are broke when they came and broke when they go,
For Pat gets everything.

iili'Mi  is equally essential.
If the situation were different���
if Borden had all parliament at his
back���I would vote the opposition in
the interests of my leader. It is just
as essential for Bowser and especially for this province.
His best friend will admit he is
human ��� at least, he is subject to
temptation. I would say, send a man
to watch him.
"On Saturday we can say we arc
prepared for machine government,
for caucus government; we can say
that we want a government that is
thc best.
"When the caucus says so," he answered his own question.
"They had a caucus before McBride left," he went on, and the
crowd laughed heartily as his drift
was plain; "they had a caucus which
ended up with bloodshed, I understand. The two big men used their
fists, some one said. In that caucus
Sir Richard wanted to give six and
a half millions to the PACIFIC AND
GREAT EASTERN RAILWAY.
>1R. BOWSER OBJECTED AND
THEY QUARRELLED. Now Mr.
Bowser is running along nicely with
the railway fellows���is going to give
the money. He was only bluffing
his leader."
"But Mr. Tisdall, in the innocence
of his dear old heart, he says we go
into caucus���count noses���and when
wc come into the house, we are one!
"They count noses!
"On tomorrow will you vote for a
caucus���a Kaiser? They used to
think Bowser was a Tory. You remember they said he was coming
from Kamloops with a couple of
punches. One evidently was for Sir
Richard and it was delivered before
he came down. The other punch was
delivered last night, and was for all
who wanted to thwart him.
"Well, I prefer the British system
to that of the Kaiser.
In the days when he had been in
parliament, went on Sir Charles,
there was no slavery, and those who
opposed a thing in caucus opposed it
in the house.
Bowser Wore  Grit Collar
"And who arc thc men who read
me out of the party?" he asked.
"The attorney-general, he wore a
Grit collar around his neck in 1896
for $50. He split the Conservative
vote. At .noon on that election day.
when he saw he could not be elected
he went to his friends and asked them
to vote the Girt ticket. His reward
was an appointment to investigate
partizanship. He got for his little
salary all it was worth, $83.50 and
expenses.
Charge Against Bowser
"I charge, in this election, you
have evidence that you have been
governed in this province by a corrupt government. By men, to their
shame, who have lent themselves to
corrupt practices. They may get
their agent-generals, but the tax collector remains with us.
_ This hideous trail runs from 1909
since those two railway Huns���Mackenzie and Mann���began to operate
here.
"Two honest men���Tatlow and
Fulton���could not stand the attempted manipulation. Then followed another mile stone���Ellison and his
cow; then another kind of stock���Dr.
Young's coal stock.
"This pilfering of your money and
mine led to a rivalry between the two
men, and I am bound to give Bowser
his due, he outdid Sir Richard. Sir
Richard allowed a rake-off dealing
with the Songhees Reserve of $75,000
���$45,000 of the plunder disappeared.
But that was .only $75,000! So the
great William J. arose and pulled off
$80,000 on the Kitsilano reserve deal.
"Bowser's reply to the court's decision that it was a lavish waste of
the money and the dut yto go after
it, was, that the courts didn't know
how long it took, and the court was
far away. But Tisdall's answer to
the 'Crisis' was, that the courts had
disposed of that!
"You pay your money and take
your choice!
Sir Charles dealt with A. C. Flumerfelt in a sarcastic and very amusing
manner. Good Mr. Flumerfelt, the
business man, found the books upside
down, and he was going to fix them
up, said Sir Charles, and in his acceptance of the office of finance min-
If the very suggestion of Opposition has brought so
much good already to the people, and has made Bowser
release somewhat his Napoleonic grip on the reins of government, what may happen if Mr. Brewster is returned to
the House?
ister he said he "would not be responsible to anything prior to the date he
accepted." Sir Charles said it damned
the government with faint praise.
"Did Bowser, Tisdall, Campbell, by
doing the ostrich trick, hiding their
heads in the sand, think they could
conceal tilings that had gone on?"
asked Sir Charles. .
He felt it was absolutely dishonest
for any man who knew the facts to
conceal them, and he charged Bowser
with using thc office of attorney-general for his own use and pocket.
There was nothing to compare to-
the indecency, he said. In all the
handling of the statutes there had
been a gradual drawing in to that
point where the statutes could be administered by some order-in-council.
He pointed to the tremendous power
wielded by such an inuuence.
Bowser's legal firm acts for about
fifty concerns, among them being:
Northern Construction Co., Western
Drydock Co., Swan son Gay Wood,.
Pulp and Paper Co., B. C. Native
Oyster Co., and the Mount Gossum-
Groundhog Coal Co., and there were
still others. It was through the influence of the attorney-general's
actions.
"What would have been said in the-
days when principles were studied?"'
asked the speaker vehemently.
"It's a crime���downright criminal
abuse," he continued. "Many a
young lawyer lost his practice���his
bread and butter���because his clients
thought they could do better with the
attorney-general's   firm.
"And take his outrageous interference in private matters. I speak by-
the book. So many irons he has ia
the fire, the place that honors him
least is where he ought to be most���
in court.
"How long do you feci inclined tola)' down under these things? (Loud'
cheering.)
Dominion Trust
"When the Dominion Trust affair
bobbed up, did Bowser advise the
governor to assent lo this? As you.
know, his linn were solicitors for thc
company. In 1913 his clients asked
him for thc power to take deposits.
They were willing to take their
chances at Ottawa. Did Bowser think
of the chances that widows and orphans were going to take? No! Tiv
March. 1914, the Dominion Government forced Bowser to repeal that
act. It was repealed, but his clients
continued to take deposits. He had
power to stop them, but he let them
go on."
Sir Charles told why he opposed
the government in 1909. What he
said then about that awful railway
orgy had come true, and he regretted
it.
"In 1909 there was an invasion by-
railway Huns who did not come out
of the north, but from the east, and
there was some excuse for us out
here because in the east they robbed
other provinces. With Tatlow and
Fulton out of the government, they
realized they owned the whole parliament. Times were booming, and
these "buccaneers" saw their chance.
Sir Charles quoted Sir Richard's optimistic statements that the building*
of the C.N.R. would bring prosperity,
and if it did not "he would step down
and out."
"And I understand he was pushed
a little when he did step down," said
Sir Charles, by which he raised a
great laugh.
Sir Charles then  read a speech of
his own in  1909, and he said it ga\'e
him some little pride, as it put him in
the light of a prophet. In that speech
he said such recklessness as was then
going on could only end in disaster.
"Am   I   not  vindicated?"  he  asked
after reading his 1909 speech.
Voice���"You  bet I"
Thc  sugar plum  to the merchants
was that the province controlled the
rates^ said the speaker, but this has
gone by thc board.    Sir Richard put-
it in thc act and took it out again, he
said'.
In 1912 Bowser and McBride wanted still more power, went to the
country again and got the Liberals
out of the house, continued Sir
Charles.
In other words, he explained, "the
elephant  wanted   more  hay,  and  he
got more hay."
In conclusion Sir Charles said:
"But for God's sake, soon let this
orgy stop. We hope���though we
have few people now���some day to
fill up these beautiful valleys. When
the war is over we want to say,
"Come to this land. We are not
only working out the British constitution, but wc have opposition. You
have heard Mr. Macdonald on the
hustings. He is honest. I know him
well, and he will use cvery effort to
get at the bottom and turn up the
corruption  of this  government.
"Let us say to the Kaiser across
thc Atlantic and to the kaiser we
have here, in the words of Shakespeare, 'Where the offence lies, let
the axe vail.' "

A definite stand has been taken in
these columns against the extension
of the Moratorium Act, and, in fact,
against a Moratorium of any description. Its damaging effect becomes
more evident as time passes.
Readers of this page will be interested in the opinions expressed by the
Monetary Times. Canada's leading
financial journal, from which we quote
as follows:
"The city of Calgary is sending a
deputation to Kilmonton to urge thc
provincial government to inaugurate
a partial moratorium in Alberta. The
Vancouver board of trade has passed
a resolution in favor of an exten-
sii ri of the present: moratorium act
in Hritish Columbia to apply to loans
contracted prior to January 1st, 1916.
These enthusiastic advocates of moratorium laws overlook entirely the
damage which such legislation, and
even talk of it, does to Canadian credit. It makes it more difficult for
this country to obtain capital a-
briia'1 As an illustration of some of
the arguments advanced against this
contention, may be cited the statement of a speaker at the Vancouver
meeting, who said that as most of
thc money loaned there since the war
was United States capital, the talk
that British Columbia's credit in the
Old Country would be harmed, was
not an argument. But moratorium
legislation in this country, and particularly at this time, does harm to
our credit, not only in Great Britain
but everywhere else. A moratorium
is an emergency act. There were
serious emergencies in most of the
countries which adopted it at the outbreak of war and in many of which
it has now expired. Surely we cannot
contend that such an emergency exists in Canada, after the garnering
of crops which are bringing $900,-
000,000 to the country and after receiving war orders of $500,000,000.
"Communications have come to the
Monetary Times showing that this
damage to credit is not a matter of
imagination. Here is an extract
from a letter from a mortgage loan
company manager in Holland: 'Every
investor wants his money so invested
that in case of emergency he can get
the by contract repayable parts of
the original investment and the interest). In this connection Canada
did not live up to the standard and I
am afraid that the Dutch investor
will, after thc war, not so readily
send his money to Canada.'
"Frequently are inquiries of United States investors in Canadian securities answered as to the outlook
here for taxation of and legislation
regarding the investments iu this
country. A man who is responsible
for Ihe investment of considerable
United States capital in Alberta mortgages, wrote not long ago to know
what was going to happen in thai
province. He was afraid that the
moratorium craze would spread, jeopardizing investments already placed
there, and stopping 'lie flow of money
from his direction for mortgage loans.
Xow he is to bc told that a Calgary
deputation is urging the Alberta government  to  institute  a  moratorium.
The manager of one of the largest
Canadian loan companies has excluded Manitoba from its operations for
the time being with a view to seeing
���he trend of legislation at the present
session. When British Columbia first
suggested its moratorium, representatives of first mortgage debentures
.-.. p-u:q|, 0 * ������' ' undertakings, a''
proximating $15,000,000, met in London and passed a strong resolution
against the proposed interference between borrowers and lenders in respect to first mortgages in that province. It is just as well to know that
these matters are not doing our credit any good."
In :his connection our readers will
be interested in reading of the opinion of the financial editor id the
"McClures Magazine." one of thc influential journals of thc United States.
We quote in part as follows:
"I think there is no doubt that Canada-has gone in too deep with her
railroads. The) have discounted the
future too far. Some of them are
white elephants, almost follies. Hundreds, thousands, of miles of No
Man's Land are overbuilt with expensive lines. . . .
"The canny investor had better
leave to others these newer railroad
Securities unless he prefers adventure.
ALSO THE DEBENTURES OF
PROVINCES WHICH HAVE
GONE IN RATHER DEEPLY IN
THE WAY OF RAILROAD GUARANTEES;"
Thus is our credit affected in this
newly created money market. British
Columbia with her railroad guarantees of over eighty millions is, no
doubt, thc province especially referred
to in the article. Our public debt of
$1H,000,000 net is remarkably large
considering the fact that industries
of thc Province which have the possibilities of wonderful expansion, are
still in their infancy and have received
no financial support from the Government of the day.

THE DIRECTORS'
RESPONSIBILITY
Directors of banks, trust, mortgage,
loan and insurance companies or any
other financial concerns handling the
funds of the public in any capacity,
have a serious duty to perform. The
day of the dummy director lias almost
entirely passed, and- good citizens
who have made a success of their own
lines of endeavor will do well not
to accept directorships unless they
iiave the time and knowledge to give
to  the necessary duties  involved.
The conscientious and careful director may well ask for all possible
information regarding the affairs of
his company and its business methods
so that he may do his duty properly,
and thereby safeguard the interests
of those who have placed their confidence  in him and his company.
If a director must take a chance on
a jail term as a penalty for neglecting
his duty, then he may well take every
possible step to become familiar with
his company's business methods, and
its internal affairs. The director's
responsibility is becoming a more
serious matter as time passes, and
the courts are more inclined to take
this view latterly  than  ever before.

PROVINCIAL CREDIT
In a previous issue or the "Chinook" mention was made of the heavy
railroad guarantees which British
Hritish Columbia has undertaken, as
affecting the Provincial credit, which
will be all-important in the future
development of the province. Since
the chief market for Canadian Municipal and Provincial bonds has been
transferred from London to New
.York, temporarily at least, and probably for some time to come, American financial writers are paying a
good deal of attention to Canadian
issues. Naturally, if Canadian securities aire being purchased by our
friends across thc border, wc may
expect to bc criticised much more
than in the past.
TORONTO GENERAL TRUSTS
CORPORATION
The Toronto Gel eral Trusts Corporation, which bus an excellent re

amount to $345,436. To these net
profits must be added $86,487 carried
forward from 1914, making a total of
$431,943. This amount was distributed as follows: Four quarterly dividends at the rale of 10 per cent per
annum, $150,000; cost of extra equipment in the corporation's safe deposit
and storage vaults written off, $5,630:
written off head office building. $25,-

St. John. $2,500; transferred to reserve fund (thereby increasing the reserve to $1,750,0001, $150,000; leaving
a balance carried forward to credit of
profit and loss, $98,812.
The profits show a substantial increase over thr.se of 1914 and by the
transfer of $150,000 to the reserve
fund, that account is now increased to
$1,750,000, $250,000 greater than the
capital stock. As Hon. Featherston
Osier, K.C., thc company's president,
stated in his address to thc shareholders, "the business of the corporation has been satisfactory and remunerative, growing in all legitimate directions." Atrust company has little
chance of success unless it has the
confidence of the public in its management and usefulness. After 34
years of only legitimate business, carried on under careful and conservative management, the Toronto General Trusts Corporation has thc invaluable asset of complete confidence
in its management, operations and
usefulness.

ROYAL CITY'S SOCIAL EVENT
OF THE SEASON
The New Westminster Amateur
Operatic Society presented the. fa-
^ousmous production of Gilbert &
Sullivan's Mikado at the Opera House
in New Westminster, on March 2nd
and 3rd, to a full house. Each night
there was a great scarcity of seats
to be had.
The assiduous and continual training of the principals and the chorus
were rewarded for their efforts at
the close of the second night when
everyone was absolutely satisfied that
they had done their part very well.
Mr. B. C. Hilliam is to be.congratulated on his splendid management
of the stage, because he has spent a
great deal of his time in getting everything ready for that end of the
production.
The music which was rendered by
Mr. Mackness's own orchestra proved to be the right strains to combine
with the scenery, which was especially painted for the 'Mikado" by the
local artist, Mr. Irving Sinclair, the
Oriental settings together with the
gorgeous costumes, and the well-
trained voices of the chorus made the
play a very beautiful one. Some sixty people sang in thc chorus. Among
those taking part were: Mr. F. Brown,
Mikado of Japan; Nankin Poo, Mr. J.
Graham; Koko, Mr. W. H. McCloy;
Pooh Bah, Mr. W. Stevenson; Pish

names, the largest ever presented in
British Columbia. The securing of
thc names look time, and work and
hope shone bright.
This time thc negative result was
that "the woman suffrage bill went
down to defeat with the bill for the
Dog Pound," according to the Government organ. The positive result
was that women were deprived of the
right to sit as school trustees in district  municipalities.
Later some of the V;
women's societies accepted the Attor
ney-General's invitation to meet the
Executive Council in Victoria. Despite the petition the deputation
again learned that they "did not want
it," they "would not use it if they had
it," and that if they "did use it they
would not try to better conditions."
Moreover, the then Premier did "not
believe in the principle."
Last year the suffrage associations
turned to Red Cross, unemployment,
and soldiers' relief work. The Government was not approached specifically for suffrage. Last year, the
Government inserted a clause in the
Municipal Elections Act by which a
woman may not vote as a "householder." A naturalized alien man
may do so, but the British-born

VALCARTIER CHAPTER
DAUGHTERS OF EMPIRE
The Valcartier Chapter of the
Daughters of the Empire held a very
successful tea at the home of Mrs.

the occasion. The proceeds of the
door went towards the Red Cross
branch of the chapter.
A splendid musical programme was
rendered   throughout  the  afternoon.
Among the interesting amusements
given was a fish pond, to celebrate
the day, being the 29th of February,
also fish day throughout Canada. Mrs.
Fitzsimmons was in charge of the
amusement.
Drawing for two handkerchiefs
took place during the afternoon, and
Mrs. Lockyerc held the lucky tickets.
Mrs. Stoddard entertained the ladies immensely, telling them their fortune by the m'onth and day in which
they were born, corresponding to the

Tickets were issued at thc door as
the people entered, which entitled
them to one draw for a beautiful crocheted handbag, which was won by
Miss Ross.

The Fight in B. C. for Women's Rights
^=
If the women of British Columbia
had a vote, would the age for marriage be twelve for "women" and
fourteen for "men"?
If women had a vote in this Province would the law permit a man to'
sell, mortgage or give away the home
without the wife's consent, signature or even her knowledge?
If British Columbia women could
vote, would a man be able to leave
his widow penniless?
Year after year, patiently, respectfully and meekly the Government has
been asked to recognize the just
claims of the women of this Province
and give them the rights of citizenship.
On the eve of election some of the
Government members guardedly intimate they "may change their
minds.'
Deputations asking for woman
suffrage are politely received, and
seriously told that "women do not
want the vote."
The women's organizations have
been gravely informed at various
times that if the Government really
thought women needed thc franchise
they would extend it.
The answer of the  women  was  a
*
wife and mother of a family may not.
When   the   women's   organizations
become too urgent something is done
lo pacify them.   For exaniplt:
The Factory Act now permits the
appointment of a woman factory inspector���but the Government never
appoints   one.
No woman sits on the hospital
board, nor has to do with thc management of the insane asylum, nor sits
on the board of university governors,
nor did the Government appoint
ancouver ally women to the University Senate.
(1 here are two, but they were elected
by their fellow graduates.)
The late Attorney-General, now
Premier, promised a suffrage delegation that he personally would vote
for such a bill. He was "out of the
house" when it came up. The new
Minister of Public Works (Mr. Tisdall) has consistently voted against
woman  suffrage  since   1899.
This Government has had twelve
years in which to change its mind on
woman suffrage. If the Government
will not change its mind as a Government���and Mr. Tisdall has only a
hint of a tint of an idea that he may
change his���why not change Mr.
Tisdall and the Government?

CHILDREN'S CORNER
It was Saturday morning and Benny awakened with a happy consciousness that Daisy did not have to' go
to school that day.
He was sure they would have lots
of fun playing together the whole day
long. Benny looked out of the window, and it seemed to him that thc
sun smiled at him.
The sky was very blue, here and
there white clouds travelled leisurely across the sky. Benny thought
they were angels, they looked so
much like pictures he had seen of angels.
The dew on thc grass was glistening in the sunlight, and thc Chickadee whistled the tunc that he never
finishes. The river running near
Benny's home reflected the blue of
the sky and the fields in the valley
below were beautifully green. In the.
far distance the snow-capped mountains spread their sheltering arms
around this peaceful valley.
Big Sister helped to dress Benny
and Daisy for breakfast.
The breakfast was over and Daisy
begged of mother to allow her to have
a tea party in her playhouse.
Mother agreed with pleasure and
said that Daisy might ask two little
friends. 'When mother was doing her
extra baking for Sunday, she gave
Daisy some currant dough. With
this Daisy made some currant buns.
Then when mother had made some
cookie dough she gave sonic to Daisy
and showed her how lo roll and cut
the cookies.
On the top of each cookie Daisy
placed a fat raisin. All the time Denny was near, watching the preparations.
Whilst mother was baking the
cookies, Daisy and Benny made the
playhouse in readiness for their little
guests.
The playhouse was a latticed building, and was built by Wilmour, but
who is now away giving his services
to the King and Country, that those
at home might continue to live under
the British flag in peace and safety
The little building, which was built
in the evenings, after a hard day's
work in the fields, was a lasting'monument to one whose devotion to the
little people on the farm, especially
Daisy, but who is How away, swallowed up in thc ranks of brave thousands
of Canadians who were now in England awaiting the call to the battle
front.
The little guests arrived on time, if
not a little before. After the table
and chairs were placed inside the little, house, there was no room left to
play in it, but there was plenty of
room on thc lawn, and the children
played ball and skipping, but the
chief attraction seemed to be the
swing. Although they were enjoying
themselves greatly, they were not
sorry when the bell rang, for their
play in the open air had made them
very hungry.
Mother had placed the goodies on
the tabic beside Daisy's buns and
cookies, and big sister had made some
candy.
It was a happy little group that sat
around thc table in the latticed playhouse. If Wilmour could have seen
the happy faces of the children I am
sure he would have felt thai his labors were well repaid.
Thc children's homes were some
distance across the fields and Daisy
and Benny accompanied their guests
part of the way home.
On the way home they spoke of
the happy time they had, and hoped
that some day mother would let them
have another tea party.
I am sure mother will.

THE VANCOUVER VOTE
A well-known man in Vancouver
said: The Vancouver landslide reminded me of the Bishop who visited
an outlying village in his diocese. He-
found men drunk and fighting, boys
in rags gambling, drunken women���
and then he met the local curate.
"This village is in an awful state,"
said the Bishop.
'Yes," said the curate, "the people
are walking in darkness���I want you
to have a nice, quiet day of humiliation and prayer."
'A quiet day," said the Bishop; "a
quiet day! No, what you want is an
earthquake!"
Yes! and Vancouver had its earthquake on Saturday and the seismic
disturbance must extend to Victoria.
It is needed there. '

"FLORADORA"
Delightful Revival of Famous Musical Comedy attracts Crowded
Houses at Opening of Theatrical
Season.
I have always regarded "Floradora" as the most fragrant of all
iheatrical bouquets, revealing all that
is best and brightest in real "musical comedy." My >ld friend, Owen
- Hall, never wrote anything so hum-
irons as its hook (unless it was in
thc derivation of his pen-name, as
he was always "Owin' all). Nor did
tliat doyen of librettists, Paul Reubens, with the most versatile of composers, Leslie Stuart, ever write anything so sparkling and spirited as the
lyrics and music of what has come to
be regarded as England's ideal imisi-
cal comedy. That may seem superlative praise to any who have never
seen "Floradora," but with all who
have, it is the common verdict.
and fragrant "Floradora," he   has excelled  himself.    In  stage setting and
dresses alike  he  has  presented a  revival  worthy  the  play.    And  he   has
equipped it with a east as clever and
a chorus as  captivating as  the  most .
captious   could   desire.     Thc   part   of
I.ady   llolyrood,   made     famous     by
Ada  Reevc,  loses  none  of its  potent j
charm   in   the   person   of   Miss   Zara
Clinton, in whom "chic" and clever-1
ness are rarely combined.   That such
a  charming  comedienne  and  dancer
voice a fine sense of character and a
strikingly picturesque and pleasing
personality of a true Carmen type.
These are given full play in such vocal gen - at "The Silver Slur of l.ove"
and Queen of the Philippine Island-.' while her acting ability ia given further cpxression in her duets
with Tweedlepunch ("When we arc
on the Stage") and in "Somebody,"
sunn with Donald Cray us Lord Al-
ercord, whose rich and well-trained
baritone is heard to advantage ill a
most artistic rendition of "The Shade
of the Palm." Miss Beatrice Carmen
makes an attractive Angela ('ilfain,
whom it must indeed be easy for Captain Donegal or any i ther "fellah'' to
make love to. while her .singing of
"Thc Fellow Who Micht" makes leap

Lcandro, is cleverly played by Marc

this character point without exaggerating its proportions���thereby reveal-

Since that memorable first night at
thc Lyric Theatre, London, in July
1X99, I have seen some half score of
subsequent Florajifbreau productions
nnd was responsible for the first
company that toured England with
this most melodious and mirthful of
light operas. I only mention this to
give authority to the unbiassed opinion that last week's revival of "Floradora" at thc Avenue Theatre by F.
Stuart Whyte is in point of artistry
and entertainment equal to any and
superior to most of its predecessors.
Mr. Stuart Whyte has built for himself an unique reputation in this
country as an artistic producer and
successful manager of high-class
touring companies. In Vancouver he
has for the last five years contributed no small share of
tractions with his popular English
"Versatilcs" company.    But with his
should have been Mr. Stuart Whyte's j",
lientenant in the actual work of production, shows a versatility of talent
exceeding even the vivacity of its
display. Sharing with her thc histrionic honors is ISilly Oswald, an
inimitable comedian, whose rendering
of Anthony Tweedlepunch (phrenologist, palmist, hypnotist, from the
Royal Aquarium, London), is as original as it is redolent in humor. His
"stew" comedy scene in Act 2 is a
gem of rich but refined mirthmaking,
worthy but entirely distinct from that
of Chaplin.
In J. V. Barrett-Lennard, Mr.
Stuart Whyte has discovered a young
English comedian who should "go
far" in his profession. Mr. Len-
nard's performance as (he amative
proprietor of the perfume and Island
of Floradora is a distinctly creative
piece of character comedy, cleverly
conceived and admirably sustained.
That popular English comedian, Harry Hyland, is seen in another "dude"
role, to, which he brings a subtlety
and resourcefulness that makes up in
quality what the part lacks in quantity. His interpolated new song.
"Private Michael Cassidy, V.C.," is
one of thc successes of a show, full
of famous song hits.
Thc leading vocal and dramatic role
>ur annual at-|of Dolores (played originally in England   hy   Evie   Greene)   is   splendidly
sustained by  Miss  Lorraine  Mitchell,

ing an artistic self-effacenient as rare
as it is pronounced in that other earnest young actor, who plays Cyrus
Gilfain. Miss Peggy Lochead and
Miss Dore Dorecn in two minor parts
combine brains with a personal attractiveness that is surely the acme
of brunette and blonde beauty, and
are supported by a chorus which reflects in voice and vivacity, as in appearance, their unusual refinement
and charm.
Miss Pauline Harvey and Mr. Goodwill show promise in other small
parts, while the octette, "Tell mejl
Pretty Maiden," which first made
"Floradora" famous, is admirably acted and snug.
Of the twenty or more musical
numbers, of which any one would
make the success of any modern so-
called musical comedy, Lady Holy-
rood's "Tact" and "I've An Inkling"
were given encore after encore, as
sung hy Miss Zara Clinton, with topical verses that score these comedy
hits a home-run at every performance, while the spirited rendering of
the beautiful chorus numbers���as indeed the entire musical part of the
production���show that in Margaret
Marian, Mr. Stuart Whyte has a musical director of marked ability and
thoroughness.
The violin solos of Miss Ethel llen-
don (one of the company) during the
"entracte" not only make the interval a source of unaccustomed pleasure, but introduce to the audience
a young "virtuosa" of rare technical
and artistic attainments, whose playing alone is worth the price of admission. Both in the "Humoreske"
and in Wieniewiski's "Obertasse,"
Miss 1 tendon displayed a quality of
tone and temper that left her audience like the Fat P.oy in Pickwick,
greedily "asking for more." Thc
beautiful stage sets in this production
of "Floradora" and the work of Ed-"
gar Mackie (formerly of Drury Lane
Theatre, London), while the costumes
both in color scheme and design al e
of a richness and artistry seldom seen
even in the largest of New York
"road shows."
Altogether, Stuart Whyte's revival
of "Floradora" is the bright spot in
all the musical comedies seen this
season  011  the coast.

"PATIENCE"  AT  THE   AVENUE
THIS   WEEK
Tomorrow evening lhe firsl performance of "Patience" will he given
iii the Avenue Theatre. Mot long
ago this happy throng of patriotic
workers banded together under the
name of the Patriotic Amateur Operatic Society, and their first appearance under this title will he tomorrow night, when they are working
under the auspices of the Canadian
Patriotic Society. No efforts have
been spared by the leaders of the
various branches of work occasioned
in a produrtion of this kind and the
result cannot help being an unqualified success. Day in and day out the
faithful members have practiced and
with no remuneration whatever, they
are going to give to the Vancouver
music-loving public a comedy brimming over with fun and at the same
time carrying with it the music of
one of thc best known combinations
of excellent art,  Gilbert-Sullivan.
The choruses arc bright and ringing and will resound throughout the
house for some of the best talent of
Vancouver belong to the cast. The
solos are pretty and when taken by
the well known principals they will be
heard to their very best advantage.
The costumes, while J-eing very inexpensive, are dainty, especially in
the Grecian dances.    The pretty old-
time Grecian dresses of the ladies
are sure to appeal to all. To have
soldiers in a opera at this particular
time should induce all to see "Patience," for twenty dragoons with
bright military uniforms will show the
art of correct marching to the young
men who purpose enlisting. The
dragoons have special choruses of a
military nature, chief among these
being "The Soldiers of our Kine," and
"When I first put this unifirm on."
The scenery lias been specially
painted by thc artist who painted the
properties for the first staging of
"Patience" ill the old country several
years ago. The opening scene in the
garden   of   Castle    llunthorne.    while
the second act is played in the w 1-
hind glade with a fountain in the foreground where the pretty evening
dresses of the ladies and the military
aspect of thc men will make a striking contrast.
Enough for the players. An admirable orchestra has been obtained, the
men of the orchestra of the 121st
battalion, New Westminster, having
given unsparingly of tlieir services
and when the curtain rises they, with
the talent they have assisting them.

A Protest from Spences Bridge
Editor CHINOOK:
Dear Sir,���1 regret to see by articles in the "World" and "Chinook"
that the government is considering
the advisability of closing up the
Provincial Botanical office on the
plea of economy. I think this will be
a great mistake and in the cud will
result ill no economy. Surely there
are other ways in which thc government can economise which will harm
the country less than by knocking out
a scientific and educational department that is doing much good and is
appreciated by possibly thousands
within thc. province, and many outside
of it.
I know the educational value of the
botanical   department   is   very   great,
and within the short time it has been
in  existence,  it  has  enlisted  the   increasing interest of hundreds of students, school teachers and cithers from
one end of the Province to the other,
resulting on the one hand of the acquisition  of  much  reliable  and  valuable knowledge by them, and on the
other  hand,  of  data  and   collections,
etc., of scientific value to' the government  and  people  of   the   country   in
general.   The educational work of the
department   along   the   various   lines
Prof.   Davidson   has   been   following
is as yet in its infancy, but there are
sufficient indications already to show
that  the  work  may  bear  great fruit
and in time bc a credit as well as a
service to the Province.    If the work
is  discontinued  now  it will be  much
harder to pick up the  threads again,
for people always lack confidence in
what appears to have no permanency
and therefore, also lack interest.    Besides, it will tend to hold up any future  work along the  line  to  ridicule.
Ucoplc within  the Province anil oth-
' ers  in  different  parts  of  the  world
(especially scientific men who are expecting great results from the department) will say "This is a department
thc   li.  C.   Government  attempted  a
few years ago but they could not afford   it.     It  is   not  a   permanent  institution and may be dropped again at
any time."    But aside from thc matter of education, why should this department   not   be   permanent?     The
cost of its upkeep is very little, and
the  economic value  to  the  Province
ought  to be  great;    If  it  is  not  already, it should be presently.     The
advantage of having a botanical  tic-
partment. under a thoroughly trained
scientific   botanist   ill     an     immense
country possessing thc great fegetal
wealth of British Columbia should be
evident, as  there are  so  many ways
a, small scientific department like this
might help in the development of the
resources of the country.    There  is
no need to enlarge on this here, as the
value of the scientific botanist in this
connection   is   realised   by   so   many
and the good results obtained in Germany, India, and other countries are
well known.    Surely  the  government
does not expect the country to stand
still or go back, and if it expects to
go ahead then the botanical department is required and no doubt will as
sist  in  several  ways  in  the  development of the country.
To my mind, to close up the botanical office will bc but to administer
another black eye to the Province,
and will do no credit to the intelligence of cither the government or
the people. Personally, I may say,
1 have found the botanical department
of considerable help in my work.
Prof. Davidson has always been most
painstaking and obliging in imparting information to myself and to
many others I know, and he has examined and identified several hundred specimens of plants, etc., I have
collected, which have economic, medicinal and other uses among the native
tribes of the Province. In return, I
have always given the department
all tlie assistance I could in getting
people interested in thc work, and in
many other ways. I have done this
because I had confidence in Prof.
Davidson's ability as a scientific botanist, and also as a matter of duty to
help this branch of science along.

Mr. Matthew has perhaps been more

in his opposition to the suggested legislation. His Campaign of education
on thc platform and in the public

company the liability insurance on
the employees on some of the most
important manufacturing firms in this
