THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
AFTER SIX YEARS
After six years' management of the
affairs of the Province the Hon. Richard
McBride is once more appealing to the
electorate. He came in, as an untried
man, on a wave which in every crisis,
enables someone or another to ride to the
top. Never was there an occasion to
which the trite Shakespearian quotation:
"There is a time in the affairs of men,"
is more applicable. Richard McBride
grasped his opportunity, and in doing so
displayed the same characteristic of sagacity and courage which have led him in
the present crisis to take his political life
in his hands, and launch out on a sea
where he is abandoned by two of his
strongest allies, and must once again
"make good" or suffer eclipse.
]   THE TWO RESIGNATIONS
And this circumstance is so noteworthy
that in any review of the situation it
necessarily occupies a foremost place. Two
men who have been among the most stalwart supporters of Mr. McBride from the
time when he formed his first Ministry
until now have refused to travel further
in the same boat.    It would be a mistake
to depreciate the value of these men and
their services, and equally a mistake to
minimise the importance of their defection.    The Hon. R. G. Tatlow is one of
tlie ablest ancl most honourable men in
public life.    It has been no mistake to
dub him the strong man of the McBride
administration, because he has enjoyed in
a remarkable degree the confidence of the
electors.   This confidence has sprung from
an appreciation of his high personal character, his absolute integrity, and his devotion to the interests of the Province.   It
has been vastly increased during the last
six years by the remarkable manner in
which, as head of the Finance Department,
he lias rescued its business affairs from a
state of bankruptcy and chaos, and rehabilitated its credit in the money markets
of the world.   While it would not be fair
to give Mr. Tatlow all the credit for this
achievement, because he has been but one
member of a Cabinet whicli has carried
out a policy agreed upon by the whole, it
is recognized that his personal knowledge
of finance, his acquaintance with the needs
of tlie Province, ancl his devotion to duty
has enabled him to achieve a unique record, and entitled him to all the credit
which is clue to the head of a successful
governmental department.    Of. Mr. Pulton it is a pleasure to speak in similar
ternis as to his high personal character
and devotion to duty, even if, as must be
admitted, hc possesses less administrative
capacity   than   liis   more   illustrious colleague.    Both men have been not merely
loyal members of the McBride administration, but have been ancl still are animated
by feeling's of the strongest affection for
Mr. McBride personally.    To this sentiment they have given utterance on many
occasions, and their regard is undiminished.     Under   these   circumstances,   while
tlieir loss will be keenly felt both as heads
of departments and as personal colleagues,
tlieir attitude removes any doubt as to the
real reason of their resignation, ancl makes
it perfectly clear that nothing short of
conscientious objections to the policy which
Mr. McBride has announced would have
induced them to withdraw their support.
Tliis consideration narrows the issue clown
to very small dimensions;   there  is no
question of disaffection or maladministration; there is simply an honest difference
of opinion as to the wisdom of a new
policy  which  involves  the   Province  in
considerable financial liability.
The Provincial Campaign
THEIR OBJECTIONS
Mr. Fulton thinks that no assistance
should be given to railway building in
British Columbia. Mr. Tatlow, while not
going so far as that, thinks that the assistance which Mr. McBride proposes to give
is too considerable. Neither objects to the
Canadian Northern project, or questions
its general utility as a means of developing the Province. Their opposition rests
solely upon the question of financial aid.
In considering their action it would be a
mistake not to take into account the temperament of both ex-ministers. They are
known to be men of extreme caution, ultra-
Conservative; and Mr. Fulton at least a
man slow to arrive at a decision, and
averse to change. It is in face of such a
huge scheme as Mr. McBride has evolved,
that the calibre of men is tested. To The
Week it appears as if, with all their excellent qualities, of which no one is more
appreciative, Mr. Tatlow ancl Mr. Fulton
are a little inclined to lag in the race
towards that goal for which the Province
is heading, whilst iMr. McBride, with more
courage and daring, ancl as The AVeek believes, with a keener appreciation of the
possibilities of the future, does not hesitate to 'hitch his waggon to a star." The
difference is purely temperamental; whilst
Mr. Tatlow ancl Mr. Fulton would gladly
follow the old injunction ancl "leave well
alone," Mr. McBride, with more enthusiasm, more ambition ancl more foresight,
realizes that, as in his own career, so in
the career of the Province, a crisis has
arisen whicli demands a more daring ancl
progressive policy if it is to achieve its
destiny.
MR. McBRIDE'S JUSTIFICATION
If the proposal of the Premier were
a blind appeal to chance, or a desperate
throw of tlie gambler, daring ancl courage
would cease to be virtue.   If the finances
of the Province, whilst improved, were not
firmly settled upon a solid foundation, if
its revenues were not elastic, if its available assets were not such as could, in any
emergency be quickly rendered liquid so
as to be available for any contingency that
might arise, there would be an insuperable
objection to a proposal which primarily
renders the Province liable for the repayment of $21,000,000 of capital, and the
payment of $800,000 a year as interest.
But,   already Mr. McBride has had no
difficulty in showing, by reference to the
lust Budget of his late colleague, that all
these requisite conditions for a forward
movement exist.    The credit of the Pro-
Province, which had vanished, has been
so rehabilitated that it is a gilt-edged security in any of the great money markets
of the world.    The best evidence of this
is to be found in the fact that by its aid,
ancl simply on its endorsation, the Canadian Northern arc able to raise the $21,-
000,000 which they require.   In addition,
it is noteworthy tliat of late years all
British Columbia securities have advanced
by leaps ancl bounds, and municipal and
industrial bonds sell at a high ancl increasing figures.   The elasticity of its revenues
is evidenced by the fact that year by year
the most optimistic forecasts of the late
Minister of Finance were exceeded, and
larger surpluses than he had dreamed of
accrued for his disposal.   As to the assets
of the Province, it is impossible to estimate   these,   but   the  most   conservative
valuers admit that in the lands of Point
Grey ancl Prince Rupert alone, the Province possesses potential value equal to
the total requirements of the Canadian
Northern project. Indeed, at the present
rate of increase in land values in and
around Vancouver that sum is likely to
be very greatly exceeded. That the Province possesses such enormous and readily
available assets is no reason why they
should be squandered, but it is an adequate reason why Mr. McBride may confidently recommend a scheme for its advancement which, in the worst possible
contingency might require large sums of
money. The position is really the same
as that of a chartered bank, which may
issue notes to a certain percentage of the
value of its liquid assets.
THE KERNEL OF
MR. McBRIDE'S POLICY
As to the specific objections raised by
Mr. Tatlow and Mr. Fulton, it seems to
The Week that the strongest ground upon
which   such   objection  could   have   been
raised is removed by the foregoing consideration.    On the other hand, the ground
of Mr. McBride's recommendation to the
electors obtrudes itself upon our notice at
this point.    When he came into office he
declared that lie would never be a party
to granting another land subsidy for railway  construction  in  British  Columbia,
from that pledge he has not deviated, although alternately cajoled and threatened
by the Grand Trunk Pacific, and conspicuous friends of the Dominion Government.   If Mr. McBride had done nothing
more than administer the "coup dc grace"
to land subsidies, he would have rendered
a service to the Province which   would
have entitled him to everlasting renown.
The iniquities of lhe laud subsidy have
been only too patent throughout the Dominion.    Their incubus is unfortunately
only loo burdensome to British Columbia,
which   has   been   deprived   of   3,000,000
acres of valuable land in the Peace River
country on a pretext which will not hold
wnter for a minute.   This, and other flagrant instances of the abuse of a system
which now-a-days has nothing to recommend it, more than justifies the determined attitude which Mr. McBride has
adopted towards all kindred proposals.   He
has been equally resolute in refusing cash
subsidies, fhe one which he now proposes
to grant to the Kettle Valley Railway is
exceptional in character and designed to
meet exceptional conditions.    One of the
richest districts in the Province lies, like
1111 oasis in the desert, with a railway terminus far distant in the East at Midway
and another far distant in the  West at
.Merritt.    Between the two hundred and
fifty miles, which divide these terminal
points, stretches a veritable land of promise, containing the two greatest valleys
yet  explored  in  British   Columbia—the
Okanagan ancl the Nicola.    The production of these valleys is increasing year by
year;   the fruit of the former lias made
it world famous, and the recently developed coal resources of the latter, to say
nothing  of its  celebrated   stock   ranges,
have placed it in a position of barely secondary importance.    This country has already waited too long for adequate railway transportation, and especially for that
short cut to the Coast whicli would enable it to reap the benefit of a large and
rapidly growing market.   The modest sub
sidy of $5,000 a mile which Mr. McBride
proposes to give for the completion of this
road, within a specified time, is a modest
contribution and one which no one familiar
with the local conditions will for a moment hesitate to endorse.
A UNIQUE RAILWAY-
A POTENT FACTOR
As to the bigger scheme much can be
said. A third railway across the Province,
secured within four years, on a guarantee
which, judging by all the previous experience of the Canadian Northern will never
require to be implemented by a money
contribution, ancl in respect of which the
disbursement of all funds raised under the
guarantee, will be in the hands of the
Government, is surely one which must appeal to the imagination of the people, but
that is only the baldest outline of the
scheme. The new railway possesses several unique distinctions. It enters British Columbia by the lowest pass—the
Yellow Head. It maintains from the pass
to the coast the lowest grade of any railway, and it traverses, for at least half its
distance, a territory which is untouched,
and which is known to contain natural resources of timber, agricultural land and
minerals, especially coal, which Avill ensure a large amount of freight from the
moment it is in operation. As to the grade
it is impossible to over-estimate the value
of the Canadian Northern, with its proposed four-tenths of an inch, as compared with the Grand Trunk Pacific and
its one inch, and the C.P.R. with its three
inches. It at least means that with the
same engine power the Canadian Northerii
can haul 1,000 tons where the G.T.P. can
only haul 4*00 ancl the C.P.R. in the neighbourhood of 100. The competition of railways with equal grades amounts to very
little, but the competition of a railway
with such a grade as four-tenths of an
inch opens up possibilities of cheap rates
which cannot fail to prove of the utmost
importance in the settling and development of the Province.
BEST FOR THE
WHOLE PROVINCE
The Week has no desire to play off
one section of the Province against another; it believes it to bo a sound principle that what is for the benefit of the
whole is for the benefit of each individual
part, and iherefore those districts of British Columbia which are not immediately
affected by the proposed project, are none
the less bound in loyalty to their Province
to support the project. At the same time
I here nre special reasons why the Vancouver Island constituencies should rejoice at
ihe approximation of a scheme which ensures a new direct ferry communication
of less than three hours with the main-
hind, and the construction of one hundred
miles of road through one of the richest
districts on the Island.
In subsequent issues The Week will
discuss the agreement, in detail, but these
general considerations appear to determine the value of its provisions. Without
finding any fault with the attitude of the
two Ministers who have been unable to
stay with Mr. McBride at the critical moment, The Week believes that the decision
of the electorate turns upon the acceptance of a "laissez faire" policy which
thinks that matters are all right in this
l)cst of all worlds, and that if we let them
drift along we shall do very well; and a
policy which demands bold, decisive and
even daring action, in order that the rate
of progress may be accelerated, and the
opportunity of making a forward movement at the psychological moment may not
be missed. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1909

A couple of days ago, as I was
peacefully lounging down Government
street, a friend of mine who bears
a name which stands high in Victoria
athletic circles, came to me in a state
of boiling indignation, and showed
me an item in one of the evening
papers and demanded my opinion of
it. The item was a telegraph dispatch from Toronto and stated that
a person named J. M. Robinson, of
Hamilton, addressing an audience
largely composed of young lady
teachers at the convention of the Ontario Sunday School Association iu
Toronto, had made use of this expression: "A man can't be an athlete and a decent man."
I told my friend that either the
good Mr. Robinson did not know
what he was talking about, or that
he was one of that unhappy type of
masculine humanity who only feel
really comfortable and at home at a
Mothers' meeting, and that in either
case Mr. Robinson was a very dangerous man to be at large. I said it
quite strongly too, and my friend
went away quite satisfied, but the publicity given to the remarks of this
Ontario excrescence seems to me to
call for some comment upon them.
Now, it is just possible that this Mr.
Robinson is merely an ignorant man
who used the term "athlete" as meaning simply a man who performs on
track or prize ring for money. It is
the fashion amongst slovenly thinkers
to call such men athletes, whereas,
broadly speaking, they are nothing of
the sort, being simply hired specialists in some special branch of athletics. They are very often extremely objectionable persons and, as I
learnt long ago to my sorrow, given
to the disagreeable practice of selling their backers. But Mr. Robinson, if he meant these kind of people,
should have expressed himself better.
The real athlete, whether boy or
man, is out and away the best citizen
that any community can possess, for
the simple reason that neither boy
nor man can be a genuine athlete
without having learnt to control himself. Whether in boxing or wrestling, running or swimming, shooting
or fencing, or any of those games of
a competitive nature which test a
man's strength and nerves, one thing
is sure, and that is that no man who
is dissipated or self-indulgent can ever
hope to excel in them. The athlete,
therefore, to be worthy of the name,
must have conquered himself before
he can conquer his opponent, and we
are told in the Good Book that he
who overcometh himself is greater
than hc who taketh a city. As for
decency, the best and most decent
fellows that I know arc all athletes,
and I would be willing to match them
any day in the week for courage,
strength and tsraight living against
any such men as the class that this
Mr. Robinson belongs to, who stand
up and talk such nonsense as he is
reported to have done before a lot
of girls and women.
*   *   *
My remarks a couple of weeks ago
on the subject of illegal game shooting in the Saanich Peninsula procured
me thc honour this week of a visit
from one of the game wardens, who
was sorrowful because his departmental superiors, who, like all leading
Victoria residents, read The Week,
had promptly drawn from my remarks
the conclusion that the game warden
in question had neglected his duty.
With   equal   promptitude/,  they  had
proceeded to haul him over the coals.
Of course I explained at once to the
unfortunate man that I was not finding any fault with his conduct, but
with the fact that there are so few
of him. To ask one man to effectively police the wild lands of South
Saanich is to request the impossible.
If I were a miserable poacher, mean
enough to take a low advantage and
steal game which belongs to my more
law-abiding fellow citizens, I could
myself go and shoot all day on the
Saanich Peninsula and defy any single
man to round me up—or married man
either—but that is not quite what I
meant. What I wish now, and wished
in my former article, to convey, is
that not one man, but half a dozen,
are required to protect the game and
enforce the close season in these two
municipalities, and further that they
must be backed by a public sentiment
among the better class of farmers,
strong enough to lead them to forcibly detain and hand over to the
police all persons they catch breaking
the game law. The present officials
are doing their duty to the best of
their ability, but there are not enough
of them, nor is there the requisite
public sentiment in the rural districts to enable that duty to be performed in an effectual manner.

The Brackman-K#Pfire on Wednesday was one of the things that I
went and took a look at this week.
And I should like to say a good
word here for the work done by Chief
Davis and his men in handling a
blaze that had got a good headway
before the fire fighters had a chance
to reach it. Like most Victorians, I
have heard a good deal of the improvements, both in discipline of the
men and quality of machinery which
have been instituted since Chief Davis
took control, but this was the first
time that I have seen the results in
active operation. I found these results exceedingly gratifying and, from
the expressions I heard from the big
crowd assembled to watch thc blaze,
my opinion is that of all who were
present at the scene. It is with great
pleasure that I do my little share
here towards giving the good work
of our new ancl improved fire brigade
the publicity it deserves.
* *     *
Both political parties in Victoria
nominated their candidates this week
for the forthcoming election. I must
say that never in a long residence in
Victoria, have I seen so large a convention for nominating purposes as
that which, on Wednesday night,
nominated the Big Four of the Conservative Party whom we returned to
power with such an emphatic majority
at that very cold election in February of 1907. From all I can hear
round town, the result of the election
if certain to be a victory of an overwhelming character for the Conservatives, although, like wise men, they
are taking no chances through over-
confidence, but are working day and
night to ensure their Party's triumph.
The McBride railway policy, judging
irom the talk one hears, is already
an accepted fact in the minds of the
public, and a number of very important industrial propositions are under
contemplation, as a result of the close
approach of what everyone feels is
going to be a big boom for Vancouver
Island and Victoria.
* *     *
In common with a good many people in Victoria, I was very much
pleased at the defeat of the Liberal
candidate in the Bermondsey, London,
election. As Bermondsey is distinctly a working man's constituency, I
was rather puzzled at the crushing
defeat administered to a supporter of
the Lloyd-George Budget, until I
came across the fact that Joe Martin
—our one and only Joe Martin—had
been one of the principal speakers on
behalf of the defeated Liberal. That
settled it. Joe Martin would settle
any party. He settled the Liberal
party in this Province so thoroughly
that it hasn't got over the effects yet.
If the English Liberals knew our Joe
Martin as well as we know him, they
would pay him a handsome yearly income to keep out of England.
Sporting Comment
The sporting attractions for tomorrow afternoon are of a very good
class, with a rugby match between the
Bays and Red Devils and two soccer
games in the senior division, besides
innumerable others, the lovers of
football should be well satisfied. The
rugby match will be played at thc
Royal Athletic Park and should be a
good game from a spectator's standpoint. The Red Devils are practically the Victoria team under an assumed name owing to a request from
the Bays that the name of Victoria
should be used when playing against
them. Why this should be done is
beyond my comprehension, unless it
be that the Bays have ideas of capturing the city championship and thus
claim the right to defend Victoria
against all-comers. This might be
all right in theory but it will hardly
work out in practice as I look to
see the Red Devils win this afternoon
by no small score. The soccer fiends
will have two good games in the
Wests vs. A.O.F, and the Garrison vs.
Bays. At present the Wests are leading in the race for the city championship and they will make a determined effort to stay there. The former game will be played at Oak Bay
and the latter at Work Point. The
defeat of the Vancouver football team
at the hands of the two California
colleges was hardly a surprise but
to be handed a beating as they received was never dreamed of. This
has borne out the statement made several months ago to the effect that
when the players from these colleges
got to know the game thoroughly,
that itwould take some playing to
beat them. It is well known that
whenever a college team goes into
any game they are in to win if possible and they do not stop until the
time is failed. At present the Keith
Cup, emblametic of the championship
of the Pacific Coast is held in California and it will be several years
before its resting place is changed.
After the showing made by the
Vancouver team it would not surprise
me is the locals were to give them
a good argument. At present there-
is in this city material sufficient to
put a first class fifteen in the field;
all that is required is a little concen
trated practice and the B. C. championship will land in Victoria.
Those who follow the results of
the college games in Eastern Ameri
ca have learned of the death of one
of the most promising young army
officers as the result of a football
game. This I think will give English Rugby a much stronger footing
in the United States as already many
of the colleges have taken steps to
prevent a recurrence of this calamity.
Very seldom if ever is there such an
accident in English football and it
would not surprise me if within the
next few years English Rugby is predominant in United States, at least
in the Western State colleges.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1909
TIME TO MAKE
Christmas Puddings
HERE'S A GOOD ENGLISH RECIFE
Beat eight eggs and mix them with a pint of good cream, half a pound of ffour and half a
pound of crumb of bread; beat them well together and add to them one pound of beef suet
chopped very fine, one pound of currants, one pound of powdered sugar, two ounces of candied
orange-peel and the same of citron. Grate a small nutmeg and mix all well together with half a
pint of brandy and wine. It will take six hours to boil and is a very rich and excellent pudding.
Most housewives are aware that plum puddings are better made some weeks before they are
required. If boiled for five or six hours they only need heating through when required, therefore
form a nice quickly prepared dish at a busy period.
Xmas Puddings can be boiled and the largest joint
can be roasted at the same time with a Gas Range without
the cook being compelled to remain in the kitchen and
watch the fire. Many ladies, who do their own cooking
with gas, just regulate the heat to a nicety and leave the
range for hours to take care of itself while they go down
town to do their shopping or make calls. They can do
this without fear of bad results because of the easy ancl
accurate regulation of heat with gas. A Gas Range will
bake bread and do anything that a coal range will do-
but it will do it better than coal. It is always ready
whether you want to prepare a light meal or a full course
dinner.
YOU   SHOULD   INSTALL   A   GAS   RANGE

F'or cold bathrooms, bedrooms or sitting rooms there's
nothing for comfort like a Gas heating apparatus. It not
only gives the required warmth, but renders a genial air
of hospitality to any home. It is economical, too, because a turn of thc tap and the expense of fuel ceases.
Xo work attached to gas heat. Xo tire to kindle, no coal,
wood or ashes to carry about; no dirt, no dust. It is
damp, chilly weather just now. Perhaps there is a room
in your house that is not heated properly by the furnace.
A Gas Radiator costs very little to install. We can offer
you one as low in price as $4. A small Radiator will
heat a medium sized room in ten minutes or less.

The Ferrer Murder.
Editor Week.
In connection with the assassination of Professor Ferrer you intimate that the decent section of the
world are under a heavy obligation
to King Alfonso for this dastardly
act. If that is so you can count me
out of all decent society. Moreover,
you evidently are in complete ignorance as to Ferrer's character as well
as to the true reasons which led to
his execution. If you had taken the
trouble to enlighten yourself in thar
respect you no doubt would have been
surprised to learn that he was neither
an Anarchist or Socialist, nor had he
anything to do with inciting the people of Catalonia to rebellion. Professor Ferrer was, as are the majority of men of any intelligence at the
present day, an Agnostic and consistently therefore advocated the elimination of any religious teaching in
schools receiving government support,
in fact insisted upon secular educational system such as we enjoy in
British Columbia. This of course in
the eyes of any Christian Church is
looked upon as equivalent to the sin
against the Holy Ghost and that section of it in the ascendent in Spain,
thereupon determined upon his ruin.
I may remark that in using the term
Church I do not allude particularly
to the Roman Catholic portion because as far as I can judge from
reading history there is nothing to
choose between the different branches
of the Christian Church as regards
tolerance. The only reason that an
Agnostic such as I am is suffered
to live and express my opinions freely upon religious matters in this Protestant state is on account of the fact
that that branch of the Church has
lost its power, but not its inclination
to destroy its opponents, otherwise I
would probably end my heretical
career at the stake.
Having determined therefore to get
rid of Professor Ferrer, the ecclesiastical authorities simply bided their
time for a favourable opportunity.
This arrived when the freedom loving
Catalonians made their latest attempt
to throw off the state of practical
slavery under which they are merely
allowed to exist. Charges were at
once laid against hiin of inciting to
rebellion. After a farce of a trial in
the shape of a court martial at which
nothing could be proved, he was found
guilty and shot, which proceeding you
forsooth characterize as decent. For
my part I call it murder and I only
hope Professor Ferrer's friends and
sympathizers will have .111 early opportunity of avenging iiis death by
dynamiting the Spanish premier ;ind
all his colleagues. As for King Alfonso he is simply a weak tool and
therefore can scarcely be held responsible.
You do not appear to realize that
if your principles in the way of dealing with opponents, either religious
or political, were put into practice
you as a rabid opponent of the
Laurier government would deserve
the same fate as has overtaken Ferrer. In fact an enforcement of such
principles would have consigned to a
dishonoured grave the Barons who
compelled King John to forego some
of his sovereign authority—Cromwell,
George Washington, Lyon Mackenzie
and everyone who has strived and
suffered for the freedom of the people
throughout the history of the human
race. You no doubt would like to sec
the world dominated by two parties
■—political and religious—the Conservative and Christian which to my
mind represent the principle forces
that have retarded the advancement
of humanity since it emerged from a
state of absolute  savagery.
