THE WEEK, SATURDAY, FEBRUA'
|a prompt settlement
The Provincial Government deserves
he thanks of the citizens of Victoria for
aaving made a prompt settlement in the
patter of the municipal muddle. It is
possible that the settlement will not please
werybody, indeed The AVeek Avould have
I .referred another method of dealing with
ne situation, but there were interests involved which had to be very carefully considered and safeguarded by the action of
;he Government, and when it is remembered that the chief obligation resting up-
>n the supreme authority was to relieve
he situation as quickly as possible and set
he municipal machinery in motion again,
O'that the public interests should not suf-
'er, it must be conceded that the solution
qund is probably the best that could be
ipvised.   It invol\'es the minimum of de-
ay ; it provides the machinery for carry-
rig on the government of the City; it pro-
ufes the preparation of neAV lists by an
independent authority, and the holding of
11 election as soon as the lists are ready;
nd this decision will have been embodied
i.a legislative Act Avithin three or four
ays of the disqualification of the Mayor
nd Council   There is one feature of the
ise which may not have occurred to Vic-
mans, but Avhich must have been present
i-tbe minds of the Government; viz., the
importance ;of. avoiding, anything which
ould create the impression* iii Eastern
riancial circles that, a position of any
iriousness had been created in connection
(ith Victoria's municipal affairs.- All that
iinains now is for the Revision Comniis-
on to get to work at once, to employ as
irge a staff as possible and' to hasten the
pie of election. Meanwhile the citizens
ould do well to devote the next; few Aveeks
a careful consideration of certain facts
Ihich have been brought out in connection
nth the present situation. The first is
liat the very careful and sound judgment
m_ Mr. Justice Gveg'ory places; the blame
■t the present regrettable situation on the
loiilders of Mayor Morley. In delivering
tdgment he emphasized the fact that the
ition of the Mayor as Chairman of the
evision Committee in allowing names to
main on the list against the advice of the
ity Solicitor was not an "irregularity"
ivt a'deliberate illegality Avhich disentitled
in to relief.. It.has,been argued in the
ayor's defence tliat he Avas simply folding a .twenty years' precedent. But
rely this argument has no force, for tAvo
asons. Since the question had been raised
was bound to be dealt with, and the
tion of the Mayor, in snatching an elec-
m on an illegal list could only give him
temporary advantage; and did not make
e difficulty any easier but rather more
fficult of solution litter on, because more
triplicated. The Week Avould point out
at the legal aspect of the situation has
iver been placed fully and fairly before
e public. If, when the City Solicitor
lied the.attention of the Court to the
egality of the lists, recourse had been
id to the courts and arrangements made
r the preparation of a neAV list upon a
oper basis, the then Mayor and Council
mid have remained in office until an
_ction could have been held, however
lng the delay might be. This would not
Ive involved any hardship, or in any Avay
ded to the difficulties of municipal man-
;ement, and would have avoided the com-
ications Avhich have resulted from an
egal election. There is another point at
hich the City failed to secure very ini-
if'tant legal advice, if indeed it was not
isled. After the decision of Mr. Justice
regory thc Aldermen Avere advised by the
ity Solicitor that if they continued to act
ey would be liable to a penalty of $50.00
r each sitting, if it were subsequently
und that their election was illegal. If the
City Solocitor did not know he should have
knoAvn before tendering any such advice
that the Municipal Elections Act provides
for just such a contingency and exonerates
the members of the Council from any responsibility or penalty. The Week had
something to say in the last issue about
the action of the Mayor and City Solicitor
before the Private Bills Committee. Their
joint action in connection with the proceedings of the present week raises a
serious doubt as to whether the latter is
not rapidly becoming the tool of the former, or at any rate whether he is not losing
his independence to such a degree as
seriously to impair the value of his recommendations. It cannot be forgotten that
it Avas the City Solicitor who advised the
Council that the only thing to do at a certain stage of the negotiations on the Oak
Bay AVater Question was to arbitrarily cut
off the water supply. The result Avas that
in one short week the City Solicitor and
the Mayor received a serious rebuff, the
former from the Private Bills Committee
and the latter from the Courts. The AVeek
has hitherto supported the City Solicitor
in the belief that he was a young man of
ability and energy Avho could render valuable service to the City, but his best friend's
would make no mistake in telling him
that in such a responsible position he must
.either be "a man or a mouse," and the
choice rests with himself. Meanwhile,
The AVeek thinks it only right that, the
ratepayers should knoAV that the protests
lodged against the election of the Alder*
men Avere'80 lodged at the instigation of
Mayor'Morley, a circuinstance which*will
no doubt tend to promote harmony at the
future meetings'of the City Council.
There seems to be no paricular reason why
the Colonist should have suppressed this
item of neAvs, 'but it did so.

RECIPROCITY
The battle for Reciprocity is still being carried on vigorously at Ottawa and
in the public1 press, of the Dominion. It
is hardly' less conspicuous in the editorial
columns of the English and American
papers. Broadly speaking the division of
opinion is on party lines, although in
Canada there is a much larger section of
the Liberal Press opposed to Reciprocity
than of the Conservative Press in its
favour. Unless The Week is mistaken the
trend of the discussion is following the
lead set by Mr. Chamberlain in his brief
manifesto in Avhich he indicated that it was
a matter of Imperial interest, involving a
much Avider principle than that of Tariff
Reform. Amongst the most important contributions to tlie debate have been the
articles by Professor Stephen Leacock to
the Toronto Star. The most important of
these is reprinted in the "Financial Supplement" of the current issue of The
Week. Professor Leacock is stating the
case against Reciprocity in tabloid form,
and his utterances will be found at least
suggestive and pregnant. The attitude of
the Alctoria Colonist on this subject is
creating much amusement, for Avhile it
almost daily declares its antagonism to Reciprocity, it, is filling its editorial and neAvs
columns Avith all the arguments it can
scrape together in favour of the proposed
Agreement. No doubt a discriminating
public will assess this dual position at its
true value.
EDUCATE THE PRESS
Many complaints have been made
about the misrepresentation of Canadian
affairs in the English and American Press,
but the action of the Eastern Canadian
Press in this regard seems to have been
over-looked. The last issue of Toronto
Saturday Night contains a front page
article   dealing   with   "Reciprocity   in
Fruits," Avhich is easily more unfair to
British Columbia than anything Avhich has
appeared in the most hostile American
paper. The article is by a'regular contributor to the paper, "Economist," and
there is therefore no excuse for inaccuracy. Any of the British Columbia members at Ottawa, and especially Mr. Burrell
could have corrected the article and prevented Saturday Night, Avhich is usually
Avell informed and reliable, from indulging in a gross misrepresentation of the
facts concerning one of the most important
industries of British Columbia. The
article, which occupies more than half the
front page, is too lengthy to quote "in ■
extenso," but attention may be called to
the folloAving mis-statements as showing
how ill-equipped the writer is to deal Avith
his subject. "Canadian apples are among
the best grown in America,, and may. in
fact be the very best. This applies to the
Eastern fruit especially.' British,Columbia apples are not considered here to have
as fine a flavour as the Eastern apple, al-.
though it is a A'ery handsome fruit." And
yet British Columbia apples beat: the
Eastern Canadian apples in London on all
points, including flaA'our, for which they
Avere specially tested. "It is worthy of remark that for some time past it has been
considered here in the East that the fruit
lands of British Columbia were selling at
an absurdly high price, and that they Avere
bound to come doAvn to their proper level
one of these days, .thus fulfilling, the customary cycle of 'boom and collapse'." Does
tlle Avriter.of this, article,knoAV that fruit
lands in AVashington State are, generally-
speaking, double the price of fruit lands in
British Columbia and yet tbat the value;
of their product at similar stages of cul-
tiA'ation is no greater?. "GroAving the tenderer fruits in Canada Avould seem to be
at best, a • precarious occupation. Nature
apparently; did not Avant peaches grown in
Canada." , It is quite clear that "Economist" has never heard of Okanagan
peaches, which are the finest grown in
Canada; indeed on the map accompanying his article he credits British Columbia
with producing apples only. These are
only a feAV of the more obvious mistakes..
The A\7eek hopes that the Avhole article will
be dealt with by the Deputy Minister of
Agriculture as it is, no doubt unintentionally, calculated to coiwey a very erroneous
impression of the British Columbia fruit
industry.
cious character. It Avould haA'e been more
in place on the pages of some ultra-yellow
American journal than in a usually respectable Canadian newspaper. Of course
the Democratic editor of the Toronto
AVeekly Star may lay the flattering unction
to his soul that there is no "dexter" side
to the shield of Democracy, and it is only
the members of the aristocracv who can be
guilty of a "faux pas."
FORTY; TO LUNCH
. For once The AVeek is in entire agreement with the Arietoria Times which very
properly "slated" Mr. Ellis Barker (an
English gentleman Avith a German accent)
for "butting in" on a Canadian political
issue under the guise of "addressing" the
local Canadian Club. However correct
Mr. Barker's views may be, he has no
sense of "the eternal fitness of things" .or
of minding his oavii business, and at any
rate of AVaiting for a more convenient season. The estimate in which his contribution to the Reciprocity debate was held by
the members of the Canadian Club was
well reflected in the attendancje,' which Avas
twenty below the average of last year and
may fairly be said to establish a loAV-level
record. If any further evidence of Mr.
Barker's unfitness for the honourable position afforded him Avere required it will be
found in his extraordinary letter Avhich
appeared in AVednesday's Times. In it he
says: "Canada's problems are the Empire's
problems, are MY; problems." Possibly
Mr. Barker is not aAvare that one of Victoria's greatest problems at the present
time is to find suitable men to address the
Canadian Club. To the solution of this
problem he has not made any serious contribution'.    ■""'
A WANING STAR
The AVeek has time and again put in a
good word for the Toronto AVeekly Star
mainly on the ground of its literary q'ual-
. ity, but if it continues upon the lines laid
down in the issue of February lltb, it will
hardly commend itself to fair-minded
people Avho do not believe that the hereditary principle of the House of Lords is open
to attack because of the frailties of some
of the ancestors of the noble peers. On
page 12 of the issue referred to is an
article wi th the somewhat startling heading "ROOTS AND BRANCHES OF
BRITISH PEERAGE FOUNDED IN
THIEVERY, GRAFT AND SHAME."
It is not necessary to quote from the
article, but it is regrettable that any political exigency should appear to demand, it
cannot justify, such methods of conducting a controversy. The article is accompanied by, the portraits of three peers ivho
are to-day, active in the public service, the
Dukes of Richmond, Devonshire and
Marlborough, and whatever the vagaries of
their ancestors may have been, it cannot
be denied that all these men "haA'e done
some service to the State." The fact that
the article is by a wellk-nown British Parliamentarian does not detract from its vi-
DODGE
In the Sunday Supplement of the
Colonist a most extraordinary article was
published as a book notice. It purported
to recommend a recent publication of B.
AV. Dodge & Co. of New York entitled
"The Memoirs of Prince John de Guelph
of Great Britain and Ireland" and went
on to say "Prince John is the cklest son
of His Majesty King Edward VII by the
first Princess Consort." Possibly the paragraph Avas inserted Avithout being read;
indeed, such must be the case, because no
sane person would allow such a scurrilous,
article to appear in a Canadian paper.' If
it. is not misquoted it is obviously a sensational advance notice of a, slanderous publication of the kind Avhich finds favour
among the lowest type of Americans, and
fhe liasis of which is to found in the backstairs gossip of the servants. Everyone
expected that Tuesday's issue of the Colonist would contain a withdrawal and an
apology. Nothing of the kind. It contained instead a frank avowal of editorial
ignorance, with the explanation that "the
notice was one received from the publishers
and Avas printed because it certainly seemed of interest, although the book must be
of a highly improbable nature." Just why
such a scurrilous paragraph should be "of
interest" is not quite clear, but the most
extraordinary sentence follows. "Wo shall
procure a copy of the book and shall then
be able to speak of its contents." Obviously—but Avhat must be the state of that
editorial mind which requires to read the
book before knowing that there is no such
person as a "Princess Consort," and that,
tlie immoral suggestion of the article is as
baseless, and as base, as that Avhich landed
Edward Mylius in the police cells.

Supplement which gives a concise and reliable review of Victoria Real Estate and
Financial transactions. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1911
How do you like my new headdress? If you have sufficient imagination observe me like the Mariner of old button-holing some unfortunate person on the corner and
endeavouring to obtain some item of
sufficiently spicy flavour to tickle
your jaded palates. You can almost
see the policeman round the said corner approaching with the curt "move
on" hovering on his lips and it will
be no good my urging in self-defence
that I am engaged in my business of
"lounging," for to the grim guardian
of the law there is no distinction between this perfectly respectable occupation and that of the professional
loafer. But I am always being misunderstood; it is one of the trials
and tribulations which have best me
all my life. I mean well, I have a
kind face and I do my best (all which
virtues are the hall-mark of incompetency), but I have a personal sympathy with the little hero of that pathetic book "Misunderstood."
* *   *
However, I was talking about policemen, and that reminds me that my
remarks last week with regard to the
Oak Bay constable and his method
of dealing with the small gunmen
did not and do not apply to Mr. E.
F. Dawson of that ilk, who has served in that capacity for two years and
a half and possesses the well-earned
regard of his fellow-citizens, but to
a new constable lately appointed who
had not had time to get accustomed
to the dignities of his office. Though
I mentioned no names last week Mr.
Dawson has so long been known as
' "The Oak Bay Constable" that many
people might have imagined that he
was the object of my criticism. In
common justice I state that he was
not.
* *   *
Some time ago I passed a few
caustic remarks anent the condition
of Ontario Street at its junction with
St. Lawrence. These remarks were
engendered both by the state of the
road and the darkness of the surroundings. That some attention due
either to me or to a sense of humanity has  been vouchsafed the  matter
'..is evidenced by the fact that there is
now a red light placed in this region.
True, it doesn't help the wayfarer to

Would be a good idea- if a scheme
were put into effect whereby, when
the garbage    cans    are    distributed,
; every householder living in the Tartarean obscurity of the Bay and
other similarly neglected districts
should receive as a special bonus a
lantern for private use.
* *   *
But what is the good of my making valuable suggestions of this nature when at the time of writing we
have no Mayor, and the Aldermen
are not quite sure whether they are
officially alive or dead? Unless something is done very soon I also shall
be out of a job, for I shall be in a
worse position than St. Paul who
"kicked against the pricks" whereas
I shall be tilting at a shadow. I may
be compelled to slough my pessimism
and gaze at the world through rose-
tinted spectacles, a change of habit
very repugnant to my nervous system and probably fatal to my eyesight. But I am not at a standstill
yet, for I have got yet one "kick"
left and it does not concern the ex-
Mayor or the near-Aldermen at all,
except as private citizens.
* *   *
I refer to the disgusting habit
which seems to be growing stronger
every day of arriving late at the theatre. This practice is almost invari-
iably confined to the very people who
have least excuse for such an abominable breach of manners. The most
persistent offenders are to be found
amongst the holders of the expensive
tickets, whose early training, if they
ever had any, should have taught
them something of the rights of
others, and who cannot plead "rush
of business" as an excuse for their
unpunctuality. It is true that the
custom is an imported one, and I am
sorry to say that it has been imported from the Old Country, where at
one time it was considered the stamp
of good-breeding by a certain type
of "snob" to show their superiority
over the masses by arriving in the
middle of an Act, thus becoming the
cynosure of all eyes and gaining a
little cheap notoriety at the cost of
other people's convenience. Theatre
managers, however, have now combined to put a stop to this practice
and for the most part refuse admission whilst an Act is in progress.
There is no reason why this sensible
method of dealing with a nuisance
should not be employed in Victoria
and there are many people who
would be infinitely obliged to Mr.
Denham if he took steps to put it
into force. If theatre-goers cannot
manage to leave their dining-rooms
in time to arrive at the theatre by
8:30 they must be eating a great deal
more than is good for them. It is
impossible to start the plays later.
As it is ,011 many occasions it is a
"rush" to catch the boat. Moreover, there is not the slightest necessity for so doing and there would
be many objections raised by the
great majority of theatrical patrons
who have to keep early hours. I am
afraid that for the most part the
blame must be laid at the door of the
ladies. That there are women with
some idea of punctuality I do not
doubt, but they are "rarae aves", and
for every man who can't find his collar-stud there are ten women who
forget their handkerchief at the last
moment.
* * *
Nor do these disturbers come in
quietly, with the blush of shame
mantling to their brow. They seem
proud of the fact that they are a
nuisance and chatter gaily away until
they too have time to take in what is
happening on the stage. "What matter if we are late?" think they; "we
have paid for our seats and if other
people like to be so foolish as to
take the outside seats, let'em suffer
for it." So they casually stroll in
whilst finishing lhe conversation begun outside and distract the seat-
holders whom they have to squeeze
by, to say nothing of all who are
sitting behind. And these are the
people who take offence if at times
the "gods" get a little bit "fresh."
What a world we live ini
But punctuality is on the decline
everywhere. How often have you
made an appointment ancl kept it
punctually, or if you have, how many
times has the other fellow been on
time? Personally I have yet to find
the punctual person. Like Diogenes
on the hunt for Truth I have searched the world over for the punctual
person, and have only found him in
my own looking-glass. Ancl mark
you not one of thc most persistent
offenders will ever admit the fault,
whilst their stock of excuses is inexhaustible. Nowadays there are .so
many inanimate things on whicli Uie
blame may be laid. The car was
crowded; unexpected business turned
up; the telephone wires were clown;
the time-table was altered. Oh,
there are hundreds of excuses ready
to hand, but never the truth which
usually would point to either laziness
or forgetfulness. I once read in a
book that the only punctual people in
the world were the original Red Indians, who were never late and never
early but always just on time. I notice also that creditors and promissory
notes have a knack   of turning   up

I was amused the other day, on
Tuesday to be exact, by a very small
news-vendor on Government Street.
He stood just about knee-high to a
grasshopper, but what he lacked in
stature he made up for in vocal capacity. Of course the selling cry that
night had reference to the result of
the Election case, and here was Master Newsboy shouting out at the top
of his voice:—"Times, sir; Evenin'
Times; all about the c'llection." It
immediately brought to my mind the
story of the unfortunate little street
Arab who, when asked if he said his
prayers every night replied in the affirmative. On being questioned further as to what particular form of
prayer he used he was nonplussed
for a moment, but then suddenly remembered that amongst other things
he prayed that he might not be led
into Thames Station. I am not sure
whether it was the same boy or his
brother who came back from a visit
to the sea-side wofully disappointed
because he had not seen the "tin-
namies." He said that the parson
every Sunday talked about "the sea
and all the tinnamies" and that he
had so looked forward to seeing
what they looked like.
* *   *
I do not know whether my readers
are aware that the hat-pin nuisance
has attained such proportions in
Austria that special police regulations have been found necessary to
cope with it. By-laws have been
passed by the City Councils of Vienna and Buda-Pesth making it an
offence to wear a protruding hat-pin.
Under these regulations the prosecutions became so numerous and costly
that the police were instructed
wherever they saw a hat-pin with an
unprotected end to summarily seize
it. Officers responded eagerly and
1200 trophies were "bagged" in the
first week. I commend this common
sense regulation to the police authorities of Victoria, feeling sure that
our enlightened Solons would not be
behind the Austrian in any matter
affecting public safety.
Feeling somewhat energetic the
other evening I took a stroll up
Fort Street and turned into the Roller Skating Rink tliere. It is ages
since I was last in this popular hall
and I was surprised to see how
many improvements had been effected, but most of all at finding the
Ffth Regiment Band in attendance.
On making enquiries I learnt that
Mr. L. C. Powell had made arrangements whereby this band will play
regularly every Wednesday evening
from 8 p. m. to 10:30. This is an
innovation which will be doubtless
much appreciated by the many who

What is Steep i
?
Ask the Sleeper
Which sleeper?
A sleeper is one who sleeps. A sleeper is that in
which the sleeper sleeps. A sleeper is that on which
the sleeper which carries the sleeper while he sleeps
runs.
Therefore while the sleeper sleeps in the sleeper
the sleeper carries the sleeper over the sleeper under
the sleeper until the sleeper which carries the sleeper
jumps off the sleeper and wakes the sleeper in the
sleeper by striking the sleeper under the sleeper and
there is no sleeper in the sleeper on the sleeper.

Seven Days
A crowded house assembled, or to
e more accurate, kept on assembling,
n Monday night at the Victoria
leatre to enjoy the farce which ac-
Drding to the advertisements has
;en keeping the States in one stu-
sndous convulsion of laughter. It
impossible to state wherein the
.imour of the play lies, and I my-
:lf found it almost impossible to
injure up a smile; but then I went
:yed to the highest note of expect-
lcy and was much in the same pre-
cament as the man who wants to
leeze but cannot. However, the ma-
irity.of the. audience seemed to see
ie comic side and there was a con-
ant ripple of merriment through-
it the house, but at no time did it
;come boisterous nor was the ap-
ause vociferous. Mr. P. S. Barrett

particular instance the acting was
first class. Robert A. Fischer made
a typical Southerner; as Senator
Langdon, bluff, chivalrous and honourable he won the hearts of the audience from his first appearance and
held them till the drop of the curtain.
John A. Butler, the smart New York
newspaper man yclept "Bud" Haines
was a goocl combination of wit and
sagacity, whilst Horatio Peabody,

capable hands and it is hard to make
any distinction amongst Miss Ruby

hunting widow, Miss Leah Baird, the
self-deceiving elder 'daughter, and
Miss Lillian Rhodes who was the real

production as it Was for the infinitely
inferior one which preceded it by one

The Arion Club Concert
On Wednesday night the Arion
Club gave a choral concert supplemented by contributions from Mrs.
R. H. Pooley, our popular Victoria
mezzo, and Mr. H, D. Harlin, who is
advertised as a basso from Seattle,
but who is really a profundo. It is
a pity that a concert perfect in every
other respect should have been marred, as unfortunately Victoria concerts have been marred before, by an
imported mediocrity. Mr. Harlin has
naturally a fairly good voice, but
his methods are so vicious that it is
painful to listen to him, and any
church choir in the city could have
produced a basso who would have
been infinitely more acceptable. Otherwise, it would be difficult to criticise a single item on the programme.
The choir was in excellent voice and
had evidently been well rehearsed.
Encores were numerous ancl The
Cossack War Song has never been
heard to better advantage in Victoria. Tt is hardly necessary to say that
Mrs. R. H. Pooley achieved another
of her inevitable successes. I have
several times remarked that Mrs.
Pooley's voice is improving in tone
and steadiness; her ennunciation has
always been one of her most marked
features. I have heard most of the
leading amateur singers in Canada
and cannot recall one who affords
me greater pleasure than Mrs. Pooley. Possibly her most popular selection on Thursday night was a
Hindu love-song, by H. Bemberg,
but I was most enraptured by her
rendering of Lisa Lehmann's
"Thoughts Have Wings." The accompanying of Miss Miles and the conducting of Mr. E. P. Howard Russell
were both admirable and beyond criticism. I do not remember a more
successful Arion Club concert and
was particularly gratified to note a
full  house.
The New Grand
With the single exception of the
short sketch entitled "Jerry, the Janitor," which gave the Murray and
Hamilton Company absolutely no opportunity of showing what they could
do as comedians, the vaudeville en-
terntainment provided by the No. 4
Road Company has been all that it
was advertised to be. "Bobby" Pan-
dur (fancy calling a Hercules "Bobby") and his brother are magnificent.

The Amenities of Civilization
I wonder if the fact that I have
been thinking a good deal lately about
the "good old times" is a sign that
I am growing old. I find on picking
up the newspapers and magazines of
fifty years ago that the writers were
constantly deploring the degeneracy
of the age, and painting an Elysium
which they would fondly have the
world believe surpassed in all that
makes life worth living the conditions
of the times in which they wrote.
I suppose it is natural to dwell with
satisfaction on those incidents of the
past which have left a pleasant recollection, and when they are tinged with
the rosy hues of youth and springtime it is difficult to persuade oneself
that they can be surpassed. Of
course nothing can supersede the
glorious heritage of youth, and youth
can have no successor which is not
its inferior, but this rather affects
thc medium through which we view
life  than  the  experiences  of life.
I know it is impossible to persuade
oneself that the absence of the electric light, the telephone, the telegraph, the railway train and the
steamboat would not spell disaster.
Indeed we should not know how to
readjust the programme of our lives
if any of these adjuncts of civilization were eliminated. But while they
may have become necessary to the
scheme of activity which dominates
thc Twentieth Century and while they
havc enormously improved the possibilities of intercourse and social enjoyment as well as more material interests, it is permitted to one to
doubt whether the net result is a gain.
Civilization is sooner or later going to become weary, not of welldoing but of doing too much. There
will bc a reaction and already there
arc some signs that it may come
sooner rather than later. The reaction
will not sweep away any of these
important inventions which have become dove-tailed into the fabric of
civilization, but there are minor evils
which may truly be said to afflict us,
which seem almost inseparable from
the customs of the age and which
could well be spared, to say the least
of it. Just how tantalising some of
these can become is shown by the
necessity for treating of them in almost every issue of Thc Week. For
instance, life is rapidly being made
unendurable by thc hat-pin whicii is
living up to its popular title of a
"stick-pin." Thousands of people have
been maimed, many have been blinded and one old gentleman in Boston
has been killed by one of these instruments of torture. European countries have had to pass special ordinances and to (make special .police
regulations to suppress thc nuisance,
and when fines have- failed they have
resorted to raiding the hats of the
wearers. This stick-pin is no joke;
it is universally used, and soon unless
drastic measures arc adopted it will
bc possible to parody Longfellow's
immortal couplet as a consequence of
its deadly influence:—
"There is no fireside, howso'er defended,
But has one empty chair;"
Another sign of the times is the
universal indulgence extended to the
vagaries of boys, who are lauded by
weak parents because of their precocity.    It  seems as if everybody is
in league to encourage the boy of
the times to come as near to being a
"hoodlum" as is possible, and then
everybody joins forces to prevent him
from reaping the natural consequence
of his misconduct.
Every sane man loves boys, but
this age is producing something different from any age that has preceded it, just a little bit "cuter." just
a little bit more irresponsible, and
more than just a little bit more insolent and impertinent. I know of no
better illustration of the incapacity
of all constituted forms of authority
than their inability to control the boy
of to-day. But the fact has to be
admitted and it creates more than a
little speculation as to what the civilization of the future will be like.
The third peculiarity of TAventieth
Century cizilization to which I will
refer is the decay of good manners.
This is evident in many ways, but in
none more conspicuously than in the
conduct of public audiences. I notice that The Lounger finds his soul
vexed by this condition of affairs,
and draws attention to the inconvenience occasioned by thoughtless
late-comers who persist in disturbing those avIio intent on enjoying!
themselves without ./inconveniencing ■
other people come early. |
Victoria is not singular in this re-1
spect. Matters were just as bad in j
England twenty years ago, and it!
was found impossible by persuasion ;
to suppress the nuisance. Consequent- j
ly the more courageous and enter-'
prising managers, like George Alex-'
ander and Charles Wyndham commenced the system that now prevails !
of closing the doors on the rise of
the curtain and admitting no one dur- j
ing the progress of an Act. i
I
Victoria would be following an ex-'
cellent example if it adopted a similar
rule. There would be a little heartburning at first, and the habitual
late-comers would feel sore, but the
theatre would gain in popularity and
not a few people would receive a'
badly needed lesson in punctuality. I
wonder how many of my readers will
take any notice of the above complaint, or think it worth their while ]
to show a little of that consideration
for others which is the very savour of
life, and whicii in small matters at
any rate is much less in evidence
than it was  fifty years ago.

Victoria, Feb. 21, 1911
Dear sir,—At a recent meeting of
the B. C. Dairymen's Association the
Directors decided to divide the Farm
Dairy Competition which has already
been in progress for one year, into
two classes, in order that a number
of our smaller dairymen in the Province may have a chance for competing for the Cup, Medals and honors
and not be compelled to compete
against the larger dairies of the
Province thus giving the small man
an equal chance with the large one.
Tn this matter the Directors are making arrangements for a Cup,—the
name of which will be published later, but one whicii will bc of equal importance to that of the larger trophy
given by thc Provincial Government.
They are also giving three Medals
corresponding with those of the larger dairies.
The division of the Competition
into two lots is as follows:—Those
having fivc to fifteen cows milking
and the large dairies those having
over fifteen cows, milking. This division should induce a larger number
of our dairymen in the Province
to compete in this Competition. All
the expense that it requires is that
they bc a member of thc B. C. Dairymen's association and hold themselves open for two inspections per
year, by such judges as may be appointed  by  the  Association.
For fuller particulars and entrance
forms, apply to the Secretary of the
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—
I wish to register a protest against
the letter of Dr. Loenholm, L.L.D.
in Thursday's Colonist. Dr. Loenholm may be a learned man; he may
have travelled far and studied human
nature, especially juvenile, in many
countries, presumably also he is a
scholar as well as a gentleman. I
therefore think it is in execrable taste
for him to descend to the level of
Artemus Ward and write "sarkastik"
when dealing with the really important and serious subject of "Our
Boys."
It would have been becoming on
the part of a somewhat- elderly gentleman to have uttered.a!mild reproof,
or delivered a homily, somewhat after the style of our respected but
timorous police magistrate. But no
one should know better than Dr.
Loenholm that sarcasm is a dangerous weapon and after all but a poor
substitute for the other kind of flagellation which would have been
singularly appropriate in the case to
which he referred.
I also wish to register a protest
against the Doctor's admitted impulse
to rush for a gun and take a hand in
the game; one shudders to think what
might happen if his gun had been as
handy as that of the Oak Bay policeman. Elderly gentlemen, who have
lived in the Orient invariably get
peppery, and while it is quite clear
from Dr. Loenholm's narrative that
he has himself well under control, I
Avould rather have been on the other
side of the fence if he had succeeded
in his quest.
Whilst writing I should like also to
ask the Doctor if he does not think
it would have been in better taste if
a new-coiner like himself had waited
a little longer and made a more prolonged study of the "genus boy" as
he exists in Victoria, before indulging in what is after all severe condemnation. The Doctor forgets that
the boy has been the despair of the
American continent. Parents, school
masters, ministers and magistrates
have been at their Avits' end to devise any practical means of controlling the young hopeful of the New
World. Our magistrates especially
are helpless in the matter, but this
is all because they realize that if he
is ever to become a man he must not
be interfered with, but must be allowed to develop his own "individuality." For this reason if he playfully
insults his teachers the parents and
the school trustees take care that the
punishment never goes beyond an
admonition. If he organizes a raid
011 his neighbor's dwelling, pilfers his
goods and secretes them in his father's cellar, the episode is looked on
as a harmless exhibition of exuberant spirits. If he takes a hand, of
course playfully, in the "hold-up"
game there is the same kindly disinclination to regard his conduct seriously. It is all in the way of training, and necessary to enable him to
broaden out into a self-reliant, virile
citizen. Dr. Loenholm should think
of these things and if he were not extremely selfish, not to say egotistic,
he would consider that expertness in
the use of fire-arms, with the defence
of one's country the ultimate goal, is an
accomplishment cheaply purchased by
the sacrifice of one or even tAvo elderly professors, of whom there are far
too many in the world already.
' For Dr. Loenholm's encouragement
I beg to retail an incident which occurred many years ago, the moral of
which seems to me to bc singularly
appropriate in the present instance. A
miner who worked for my father had
a brindled "bull-pup"; he was also
the proud possessor of a boy of ten
years of age.    Everyone knows that

according to tradition the British
miner loves his "bull-pup" more than
his children,—please regard this as an
aside. "Bull-pups" like boys, have to
be trained, the development of their
lighting propensities being the desideratum. One day the miner had the
boy and the "bull-pup" on the floor,
the former crouching and assuming
as nearly as he could the attitude of
a bigger "bull-pup" the latter facing
his enemy. The miner sat near by,
pipe in mouth, "sicking on" the dog,
and the boy would ward off his attack and give him an occasional clout
to encourage him to come on again.
Finally under the stimulus of a harder blow than usual the pup made a
leap and seized the boy by the nose,
holding on with the proverbial tenacity of his breed. Blood flowed, the
boy yelled and punched thc dog for
all he was worth. Whereupon the
miner angrily intervened with "Hold
on, hold on, cltinno hurt him; it will
be the making of thc pup."
Dr. Loenholm might lay this story
to heart and gracefully submit to the
playful vagaries of thc Victoria boy
011 the principle that if he loses his
nose it may be the making of the
boy.

BANKING CONSOLIDATION
JUndoubtedly tliere is a movement to concentrate still more
Jiada's banking strength in a smaller number of institutions.
|.s is not due to any action of the Canadian Bankers' Association,
were absurdly shouldered last week with the responsibility
Irequesting the small banks to amalgamate. Whilst this Avas
Irue, it is a fact that negotiations have been conducted between
[eral of the smaller institutions with a view to amalgamation,
1911 STARTING WELL
Ijanuary is noteAvorthy in mercantile circles for the activity
lilayed in stock-taking and in casting up accounts for the pre-
ling year. Combined with this is the tendency to clear out
plus stocks at bargain rates, particularly in dry goods and allied
|s. Coming so soon after the activity of the Christmas season,
light be expected that these sales would fail to attract patron-
, but there is no reason to doubt about their success in 1911.
I. enterprising merchants who slaughtered a few leading lines
le overwhelmed with business, whilst their alleged competitors
le complaining about the dullness of trade.
IPlans for the coming season are engaging close attention. There
general impression that the next few months will see a vast
Jrovement in trade conditions, at least as far as comparison with
year is concerned. The proceeds of the productive activities
J1910 have practically all been absorbed into the commercial
[•ents, and the people of the West will maintain themselves until
fall on the revenues thus obtained. Any inconveniences
Ich may have been associated with the decline in output have
[1 overcome; the way is clear for the continuation of the advance.
OPTIMISM IS JUSTIFIED
Irhe signs on the horizon justify the optimism tha> is pre-
Int in business circles.   Immigration, construction and produc-
are the three elements in the economic sphere which stimulate
[le and the outlook in each was never brighter. The success
Ich has attended the efforts of settlers during the past ten years
lie force which will move thousands to go to the West, and they
go there from all parts of the English-speaking world. Eastern
[ada, England, Scotland, the Western States and even Ireland
contribute thousands to the new population of the Prairie
Ivinces of 1911, and with these thousands will come large
Imnts of capital to be used in developing the resources of the
II. Jt has been estimated in other years that each immigrant
In the Western States brought with him into Canada an average
limit of $1,000 which has been added to the capital of the
lile. There is reason to believe that this estimate is too low
■he arrivals during these last two years may be used as the
Is of circulation. Many of these have brought $25,000 or even
looo each and cases in which $5,000 and $10,000 have been
lorted are numerous.   A man does not bring his whole family
equipment from the United States to Canada unless he has
ie than $1,000 with which to make the experiment.
BIG CONSTRUCTION PROGRAMME
Irhe construction programme in itself goes a long way to
|iurage the West.   Included under the heading are not only
addition and the improvements to the railway line, but
|iberless items whicli have a more or less indirect relation to
up-building of the country. Governments are erecting new
Idings, making roads, building bridges and  telephone  lines;

Rooms 10 and n Green Block                              1216 Broad Street. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1911
municipalities are establishing power plants or street railway systems ; private corporations are building and expanding in a variety
■of ways; even the farmers are improving the value of their holdings by bringing more land under cultivation and erecting houses
or barns or granaries.
The necessity for improving the facilities under which business
!is transacted is recognised in a variety of ways, and it is this
precognition that furnishes the basis for constructive activity. It is
.not forgotten, of course, that the country is discounting the future
'by building in excess of current requirements. Experience has
shown that to be the proper line to adopt. As long as the revenue
for the season is sufficient to cover the average cost and to leave a
little to spare—the West will not hesitate to develop with the
assistance of borrowed capital.
PRODUCTION AND WELATH
The extent to which production will contribute, to the wealth
of the people is still a matter of great Uncertainty for the reason
that the opening of the season is still several weeks away.
Grain-growing ancl'cattle raising will continue to' furnish nearly
all the revenue for'this year at least. These branches of industry
depend for their maintenance to a large degree on conditions beyond
the control of tbe producers and the difficulty of estimating how
they will "pan out" is apparent. As far as indications down to the
present time are concerned, the outlook is satisfactory enough,
Farmers are looking forward to making increajMs in the area
devoted to the various grains, whilst cattle-men" are using the
abundant returns secured during the past year' -4*6 extend their
operations. *. , ■
MINING
It is understood that the holders of certain shares in: the1
American Canadian Oil Company, whose title to such shares has
been questioned by the officials of the company, will immediately
take legal steps to insure recognition of the validity of their stock.
It is reported that-the stock in* question amounts -to roughly one
hundred and seventv thousand shares.
WHAT RECIPROCITY MEANS
By Professor Stephen Leacock
What does Reciprocity mean?
It means free trade in Natural Products,-
What are Natural Products?
Practically this is only another name for the Natural
Resources of a country.
And this means the Birthright of a People, the original
heritage upon which their civilization is built.
Reciprocity, then, is free trade in Natural Resources.
Here are two Nations.
They are proposing to initiate Reciprocity.
That is, they are about to throw open their Natural
Resources, each to the other.
But look at them.
The one is a people already grown and established—their
institutions and the basis of their citizenship long since driven
deep in the soil., ■ ,    *      .
The other is a little people, small in the achievement of the
present—great in the prospect of the future.
Look now at the Natural Resources of the two.
Those of the one have gone to build up a mighty civilization, but they lie prostrate beneath its weight;
Ask of the devastated forests of Wisconsin and the lacerated farm land of Kansas, where are the Natural Resources of
the United States?
Scarcely an acre of the Free Land—the Homestead farms—
left to the Newcomer.
The forests, still a notable acreage, are clutched and torn by
the Paper Trust and the Lumber Combine, till one State alone
sees as many trees taken from the soil as the whole Dominion
of Canada.
And now, what? .,..-. .
The ravenous maw of American industry opens wide, the
restless eye of the Trust looks abroad for new fields.
Down with the Barriers!  is the cry.
On to Canada!
Down with the slumbering pine woods of,Columbia, and
the pulpwood wilderness of New Ontario.
Rip and tear the soil of Alberta that its grain may pour
into the Millers' Hopper of Minneapolis.
Down with it, out with it, away South with it—the whole
natural heritage of the Canadian people that should have been
held in trust for their descendants.
And meantime smile, if you can, with the simper of the
fools content at the sale of your little peck of potatoes into the
Boston market.
Clutch tight the Yankee Nickel of your profit.
You may well treasure it.
You have sold it for your birthright and your future.

HOTEL ACCOMMODATION GREATLY OVERTAXED
Victoria is at present experiencing an almost unprecedented
demand for hotel accommodation indicating the great increase in
travel from outside points. For the past ten days hotel accommodation has been at a premium and the demand appears to be
growing instead of diminishing.
Hardly a hostelry but reports that the demand for accommodation has been largely overtaxed. Every hotel is filled to overflowing and guests are being nightly turned away. Victoria has
before this experienced a lack of accommodation for the stranger
within its gates, but tbat such difficulty should arise, at this time of
year.is almost unique and is further testimony to th'e fact, that this,
is Victoria's growing tinie.'
 The- growth- ef the city, the increased attention being paid to
' This'se'ctioh by the Outside world'are followed by a natural'increase
in arrivals. At this time of year, too, the prairie resident, tired of
the cold and storn.3 of the Eastern section, seeks the balmier
climate of the Pacific Coast and adds to the number who crowd
daily into the portals of the city.
" / * B. C.' TELEPHONE: CO: •,' : ;_ ' 1  '/;, j i ■
A four-story class "A"' fireproof building, to cost $65,000, is
planned for the B. C. Telephone Company,-to,be,,bu.ilt upon the
property at the southeast corner of Johnson and Blanchard streets,
and the local manager of the,company announced this morning
that construction will be commenced on the new quarters as soon
as the architect completes the plans.
The ground floor, according to the plans, measures 41 feet by
70 feet and is to be set aside for the housing of the power apparatus
and storage.
General offices are to be situated on the first floor, with rest-
rooms for the operators. The'second floor of the new building is
being planned to house the batteries and terminal room apparatus,
together with the plant department offices. -,-,/.* ■■'■'.
On the third floor will be located the local and toll switchboards
and the traffic department offices. The complete plans are
expected to be ready in a few days, drawn on the lines laid down,
with a building absolutely fireproof and up-to-date in every respect
and with all modern facilities. •-' •
Thomas Hooper, architect, is handling the plans. Construction
is expected to be completed,by September of tbis year.
PROJECTED DRY-DOCK
Vancouver Island is coming into his own at last. A proposition
is afoot to locate a great dry-dock in Lang's Cove at Esquimalt,
which when completed will be the' scene of some of the'biggest
ship-building operations in the world. The firm which will build
the dock is the British Columbia Marine Railway Company,
Limited. The dock will be 900 feet long with a width of 100 feet
at the entrance.   The cost is estimated at $3,000,090.
What this dry dock and its attendant industries will mean to
Esquimalt ancl Victoria and the Avhole fsland generally cannot be
calculated in words. That it will have a tremendous effect in
building up the Island is admitted on all hands, and that it will be
the best thing that ever happened for the district is a certainty. It
will shift to a large extent the centre of the ship-building to the
Pacific coast. It is the first move in the general trend toward the
west. When completed the dock will be of such capacity as to
accommodate the very largest type of vessel; not excluding
warships, and the latest merchant leviathans of the deep.
B. C. E. R. EXTENSIONS ;
Of late there have been reports in circulation to the effect that
the B. C. Electric company would'not carry out the provision of
the agreement arrived at with the city relative to the development
of power at Jordan river calling for the expenditure of a sum of
$250,000 on extensions in addition to thc cost of constructing the
plant and conveying power into the city.
At a recent meeting of the city council a memorial was ordered
sent to the head office of the company at London, England, inquiring of the truth of these reports and urging that the company
carry out the terms of its contract with the city,
So far no reply has been received from the head office but a
communication has been received from the acting general manager
at Vancouver, Mr, T. R. Glover, who states: "I wish to assure
you that the company will carry out the works which it agreed to
perform in the Protective Clauses agreement. So far as f am
aware there has never been a suggestion of withdrawing from any
pledge which we have given."
THE START ON VANCOUVER ISLAND
An event which marks one of the most important epochs in the
development of Vancouver Island took place this week, when His
Honour the Lieutenant-Governor turned the first sod of thc Island
section of the Canadian Northern Pacilic Railway. The ceremony
was the formal inauguration of construction work upon the new
road. There was a numerous attendance of thoroughly representative citizens, perhaps three hundred in all, who witnessed an event
well calculated to become notable when the history of the Greater
British Columbia that is to be, comes to be written.
In the course of a trenchant speech delivered on the occasion
Premier McBride stated that all sections of the Canadian Northern
Pacific Railway in this province would be under contract within
twelve or eighteen months at latest, and that this province's
portions of the new transcontinental railway would be completed
ancl ready for operation before the expiry of three years.

COST OF IMPROVEMENT WORKS
The city engineer has made a report of the cost of asphalting
Esquimalt road from Bridge street to Point Ellice bridge. This
work which is part of the larger work of improving Esquimalt
road right through to the city limits is estimated to cost $18,348.
The cost of lighting Broad street with the new system of cluster
lights from Fort street to Cormorant street is $8,990.70.

Dr. Bechtel, of this city, is about to erect a handsome dwelling
on Rockland avenue, near Government House, to cost in the

NEW CLUB FORMED
The Camosun Club is the latest addition to Victoria Clubland
and though organized but a short time ago has already a large
membership. Temporary quarters have been secured on Langley
street, opposite the court house and it is expected that within a
short time the membership will have so increased that larger
quarters will be required. The membership consists of many of
the best known of the young men of the city who believe that
there is room for a third club in the city.
The new organization has been singularly fortunate in the
name chosen for the club. Fort Camosun was the first designation
by which early Victoria was known, the Hudson's Bay company's
headquarters here having been given the pretty Indian name.
Last night the rooms secured were thrown open to members
and the energetic work of the committee was indicated by the cosy
and artistic arrangements made.

Immigration  Rush
The immigration rush to Canada for
1911 is in progress. The Grand Trunk
the C. P. R. and the Canadian Northern have all carried on an unprecedented campaign this winter to
secure immigrants in Great Britain
for their respective territories in

Dominion  and Provincial
News
Work at Hope
Hope is a busy town these days
and the populace is naturally elated.
The cause of it all is the actual inauguration of construction on the
Canadian Northern between Hope
and Popktim and a crew of over
one hundred men has been placed on
thc vicinity of Hope.
Mining Men Will Tour Canada
One thousand of the world's leading geological and mining men wil!
make a tour of Canada in 1913, according to R. W. Brock, director of
thc Geological Survey. In 1913
the International Geological conference, will make Canada its meeting
place. The main features of thc congress will be an excursion from coast
to coast -on which members will size
up thc Dominion's mining resources
and take impressions of its geology.
Will Not Go to Ottawa
The Vernon board of trade, having
received little encouragement from
other boards of the interior in its efforts to arrange a delegation to OttaAva, has decided to cancel the proposal. It seemed to be the opinion
of thc majority of the boards communicated with that nothing further
could be done owing to the rebuff
received by the Ontario fruit growers at OttaAva.
Vancouver to Alaska
Surveyors will be sent north this
spring to locate the northern portion
of the line of the British Columbia
and Alaskan railway between Fort
George and a point in south-eastern
Alaska. The southern portion of thc
line between Lytton and Fort George
was located last summer. The company has secured authority to build
from Lytton to Vancouver along the
Fraser river, and this will give an
ill-rail route between Vancouver and
Alaska.

COOKING with GAS
SAVES TIME and MONEY
It is a method far superior to and much more convenient than any other.   Gas for cooking purposes is
more economical than coal or wood and it ensures more uniform results.   No overheating or under-
heating with igas.   No dust, ashes or smoke as with coal or wood.   Much cheaper, too, because you only
burn the gas while cooking.
Miss Hall is Here Just Now Demonstrating the Simplicity of Gas
We would like you to visit these showrooms while this lady is with us. The "Jewel Cabinet Range"
which she uses is admirably suited to the requirements of a large family or a gentleman's house. We
have an immense stock of Gas Cook Stoves, ranging in price from $18.00 up.
FOR $5.00 CASH DOWN AND $5.00 PAID MONTHLY WE INSTALL ONE OF THESE EXCELLENT RANGES IN ANY KITCHEN,
CONNECTIONS FREE
Set the Range up and leave it all ready for you to light and cook with.
Our present specially low prices are attracting numerous buyers.   Why not YOU?   When once you have tried gas you will never.be willing to cook with
any other fuel.   Come in and talk the matter over with us.
GAS RADIATORS, newest ideas, priced from $3.00 to $15.00.

these columns who has not seen the

|ie or she had better take advantage
jf the last night, and make a point
|_f getting there early.
The Majestic Theatre
On Monday night the film de resistance was the great wrestling
Inatch between Gotch and Zbyszko
lielcl at Chicago and resulting in a
t'ictory for the former. This is one
|.f the clearest and most detailed pic-
lures that I have ever seen, and I
should think it was also one of the
longest. Of special interest to British Columbians was another scene
laid at Bankhead, B. C. This was
|n the form of a drama dealing with
love affair between the son of the
buperintendent and a miner's daughter.
Romano's Theatre
Two   thousand   (feet   nf   film   was
bonsidcred a pretty good length not
long ago, but it is not enough to sat-'
|sfy the ambition  of  Mr.  Quagliotti
jf Romano's. Not content with keep
ing his theatre open from noon onwards he this week secured a little
3,000 ft. film depicting the Cowboy
and Indian Frontier celebration at
Cheyenne. A mervallous combination
of interesting sight was shown on the
screen when this was unrolled.
"Hunting the Giraffe" was a good
type of educational picture shown
during the first two days of the
week.
The Crystal Theatre
Manager Jamieson is determined to
lose no opportunity of making his
house one of the most up-to-date in
the city, and to this end he has intdo-
duccd somewhat of a novelty by providing a vaudeville turn sandwiched
in between the pictures. This week
Prof. Hohmann has been delighting
the audiences with violin solos which
have been more than well rendered.
"Checkmated," a powerful drama
dealing with love, deceit, prison bars
and justice, was on view on Monday
and Tuesday. As usual Pathe Freres
were well to thc fore with an instructive film showing the tin mining industry in the Straits Settlements.
Most certainly thc children of this
generation have unequalled opportunities for absorbing knowledge under
the most favourable conditions, and
it may not bc long before the schoolroom is shifted to the moving picture
house.
"Polly of the Circus"
An event of the theatrical season
will be "Polly of the Circus," Frederic Thompson's magnificent production, to bc seen at the Victoria theatre on Tuesday, Feb. 28. This wholesome and simple story is one of the
most delightful plays of recent years.
It would be difficult to imagine a
prettier scene than that with which
the first act of "Polly" closes. It is
there that the young girl of thc circus
world gets her lirst insight into
things that arc higher and better
when, as she first regains consciousness and realizes her helplessness,
the minister reads to her, at her request,   those   memorable   lines   from
the book of Ruth: "Entreat me not to
leave thee; for whither thou goest, I
will go; and where thou lodgest, I
will lodge." The curtain falls and
thc story is begun.
Watch for the parade.
Josef Hofmann
After a considerable fast for those
to whom good music is a delectable
feast, a treat of the first quality— a
veritable musical banquet—is to be
provided on Thursday evening next
at the Victoria theatre, where Josef
Hofmann is to appear in a characteristic recital programme. There is
probably no other pianist of the day
whose name and fame are equally
well known throughout America, and
the Victoria Musical Society, through
whom the engagement has been
brought about, is entitled to special
congratulation upon securing for the
edification of local music lovers a
recital whicii promises to be both immensely pleasurable and vastly educational.
In thc latter connection it is understood that the Society, whose policy
it is to promote thc cause of music
by every means possible, has arranged to meet the request of local students of the piano for slight concessions, in order that these may have
opportunity of hearing a master of
thc keyboard; and will grant gallery
or balcony seats to such students,
upon application through their teachers, at half the general admission
charge. This is in itself a very great
concession, and serves to accentuate
thc legitimate activity of the Society
and its sincere desire to further the
true interests of music at. every opportunity,
Hofmann, who like his great contemporary Paderewski, is of Polish
birth, has only recently returned to
America, accompanied by Mrs. Hofmann, who is an American, and their
two interesting children. He opened
the present American tour with a
memorable recital at Carnegie Hall,
before an audience taxing the capacity  of that  immense  concert  hall.
Hofmann, who is eccentric among
musicians in that he displays no eccentricities, has entered with keen
enthusiasm upon his present tour,
which promises to be one of the most
extensive yet undertaken by an individual  virtuoso.
Apart from his recent appearances
in Russia, the greater part of thc Polish pianist's time of late has beeu
spent in recreation and study of a
character not usually followed by the
master executants of the musical
world. The investigation of the problems of electricity, mechanics ancl political science have taken up latterly
much of the time of this young genius
who is now entering upon the greatest period of an already broad and
distinguished  public career.
At the Street Corner
BY the lounger
(Continued from Page 2)
nightly throng thc rink. 1 also found
out something which I never knew
before, viz., that there arc capable
instructors of both sexes to teach
the art of dancing on roller skates
ancl I noticed that on the evening in
question there were many proficient
dancers amongst the odd two hundred people assembled. The rink is
open every morning from 10 to 12
ancl in the afternoons from 2:30 to
4:30. Every evening the hall opens
at 7:30 ancl skating is continued till
after ten o'clock. As most people
know, there is a mechanical Military
Band Organ installed which discourses music on ordinary occasions
and has proved very acceptable, and
it is beyond doubt that this new engagement of the 5th Regiment Band
on the part of the management will
havc gratifying results.
* * * *
One has been accustomed to regard
a second as a very short space nf
time.    At first glance it would seem
impossible for anyone to hit an object fifteen times in one second and
absolutely out of the question to hit
a series of different objects fifteen
times in the same time. But that is
what Miss Rose L. Fritz can do when
she gets clown to business on a typewriter. The Underwood is the only
machine on the market which will
stand the strain, and it docs seem to
be asking rather a lot of any human
made article. Never have I seen a
more wonderful exhibition of typewriting than that whicii I witnessed
last Saturday night at the Broad
Street Hall. And I understand that
on the following Monday when climatic conditions were more favourable Miss Fritz did even better work
before members of thc Legislature
and other privileged spectators, as
also on Tuesday at St. Ann's Convent. In view of tliq fact that on
Saturday night thc pieces dictated
were delivered by her manager ancl
were not selected by the audience, it
is worthy of comment that on Monday a piece was selected by a stranger, Mr. Kent, ancl that Miss Fritz
still preserved her phenomenal speed.
On the same day she broke the
world's record by copying 302 words
in two minutes whilst computing a
column of six figures. Thc extract
copied consisted of words averaging
5.7 letters. Whilst engaged in conversation she managed to reel off
copy at a rate of 159 words per minute. Such demonstrations have to bc
seen to be believed and even then it
is hard to credit the evidence of one's
own eyes. As to how it is done,
there is, 1 believe only one recipe
and that is spelt with eight letters—

stenographers in town to say nothing

CONCERNING FASHIONS
The "startling discovery" has been
made by an American writer at Lux-
Or that the hobble skirt is five thousand years old, and   was   the   ruling
fashion through eleven dynasties, besides   being   the   style  worn  by   all
Egyptian    goddesses.     This    rather
I dashes one's confidence in the orig-
linality of his own time, says the New
York Post, even if it provides a hoary
sanction of the latest mode.   But the
really striking thing about it is the
I Unconscionable duration it asserts for
la single fad.   A modern mind is stag-
[gered as it tries to picture the un-
I disputed supremacy, from dynasty to
[dynasty and from age to age, of an
[unchanging standard of dress.   In the
[twentieth  centpry, we are  not  con-
Jtent to stand still, and our liberty-
lloving souls resent anything like dom-
jination, especially in personal affairs,
las our contemptuous disregard of the
[fashion plates    conclusively    proves.
[Hence our surprise at the stolidity of
la people that was able to endure a
■particular vagary throughout   genera
tions, from Cheops to Cleopatra. One
of our triumphs is the solution of the
problem of style. We were long ago
Convinced by our disinterested fash-
n-creators that any style was bear-
ile for a little while. Accordingly,
ve restrain our sense of the aesthetic
Ifrom breaking into open revolt by as
rapid ancl sweeping alterations of the
[fashion as the tardy seasons will per-
jmit.
her  coffure,  and  if  it  be  pinned  in
even the least taste it will look lovely
One of the new ideas is to have a
wide band of embroidered velvet or
cloth of gold, and at the edge to sew
on half full a two-inch gold lace, this
latter to extend to just below the
ears. The effect is exactly the same
as though the wearer had on a pretty
little cap. Another novelty is the
yellow net bandeau studded with
nailheads, the band to be fastened so
that a passementerie ornament made
of jet falls over the ear. All sorts
of old-fashioned brocaded ribbon is
put over the head. This ribbon must
be old not only in design, but in coloring, too. Yellow sems to be a favorite dye this year. Nothing flashy
is used on the head. The dyes are
as faded and sunken in the tissue as
though they were centuries old. At
the high-priced places all these head
ornaments are touched with gold or
silver beads and much material in the
way of beads, embroidery and motives to go on them, though the detail is so tiny that it is the great mass
that counts.
It is getting rather late in the season to use much fur as trimming, but
until Easter the gowns trimmed with
sable, ermine, and, most fashionable
of all, skunk fur will be worn. The
contrast of the fur with the transparent fabrics is one reason of its popularity, as this is an age when everything distinctive and original is bound
to be popular. A pale grey satin net
tunic embroidered in silver arid pearl
beads and made up over white satin
is far more effective in consequence
of being trimmed with a band of
skunk around the bottom of the tunic.
Fur on the waist is more or less in
the nature of an experiment, for if
not arranged most carefully it is unbecoming. A narrow band is the best
style, for the broad band rarely looks
well, especially if the fur is of the
long haired description. Ermine is in
the short hair class, but is a fur becoming to few, and, in truth, is not
to be recommended if it is near to the
face. Even the freshest and clearest
of complexions suffer by contrast
with its dead whiteness, especially on
an evening gown.
The debutante, if her brilliant coloring be her chief beauty, can perhaps wear ermine and look charming,
but if white fur is essential for the
model of the dress fox is best, and
marahout, which, of course, is not fur
at all, is best of all. Indeed, marahout, in white, brown ancl the various fashionable shades as well is not
one whit diminished in popularity,
and as the season nears spring many
evening gowns that havc depended
for their effect upon their fur trimming are being redecked with marahout of the shade of the fur that has
been laid away in a camphor (or
rather sent to cold storage, as camphor spells a death warrant for most
furs) until it can be used for some
other purpose another season. Swans-
down is also used considerably upon
evening gowns for the debutante.
Beaded and embroidered tunics can
often be bought already made up to
attach to any gown, and, incidentally,
this provides an unexampled means
of restoring a frock that has had
too constant wear to appear any
longer in its original state. There can
also be purchased by the yard beaded nets which can be formed into
most attractive tunics, and with a
deep crystal fringe added, will make
the gown as effective as could be
desired by the most fastidious.
Instead of placing white or pale
nets over the gowns of brilliant hue,
it is the fashion this year to have
the tunic of some vivid shade of rose
or electric blue .or emerald green,
while the underdress is of ivory or
cream white satin. The tunic or
overdress also is generally opened
both in front and back, leaving about
an inch of the white visible. It is a
good point to remember that when
the tunic is laid on its white foundation it will forfeit much of its colour, so that a far deeper shade can be
used than would at first be thought
possible.

The really lovely things this season
e been made for the head. Not
vith respect to hats, either, for as a
[whole the hat of this winter would
better not be spoken of, for it has
ling but its immensity to recoin-
|mend it. The trimmings for the head
are beautiful. They are so pretty that
any woman has only to put one on
Bordering many of the tunics, deep
fringe is very smart just at the moment. Sometimes this fringe is of
sewing silk, sometimes of gold or silver thread, sometimes of crystal
beads or of jet if the gown is black
or trimmed with black. The heavier
fringes are preferred as a rule, as they
tend to make the light stuff of the
tunic cling in to the figure in the
straight lines that arc the dominant
note in the season's fashions. The
fringe on the tunics may bc anywhere
from two to six or perhaps more
inches wide. On many models the
tunic is really formed into the effect
of a draped shawl by trimming the
bodice as well with the same fringe.
Slowly but surely the skirts of all
house and evening gowns are growing larger. The tunic, however, does
not yet reach the gorund, and is cither made quite short, so as to give
rather the effect of a jacket, or else it
escapes the floor by about four to
eight inches. But of all things, it
must hang straight, for this is demanded of every skirt made this season, and even the newest skirts,
which really exhibit a respectable
amount of material about the feet
and ankles, are fashioned so as to fall
wonderfully straight up and down.
This is the time of year when the
woman who does not go south has
unending demands upon her smart
black evening gowns. The newest
black evening frocks, with their
wealth of silver and gold trimming
ancl their masses of jet and crystal
and bead embroidery, are rarely beautiful examples of the dressmaker's
and the designers' art. Grey so combined with black, jet, and black bead-
work that it comes under the head
of the black gowns is also much in
favor for the most elaborate dinner
frocks. A gown made with cloth of
silver as a foundation ancl overdress
or tunic of black with jet beads in
diagonal rows was most effective. The
bodice was filled in with silver lace
worked over in gold. There is little
likelihood so long as thc sheer materials continue to bc so exquisitely

TOPICAL  TRIFLES—XVI.
(By Onlooker)
If the prognostications of a Prussian suffragette are fulfilled there is
likely to be a premium on Canadian
husbands in the near future. The fair
Prussian declares that the great surplus of German girls will emigrate to
Canada,' and compete with English
girls for husbands in this country.
She says that among other things the
"high price of meat makes it increasingly difficult for a respectable girl
to get married" If the high price of
meat has anything to do with the
troubles of German maidens of marriageable age they will not be very
much better off in this country. They
would probably do better in the
States where Dr. Herman Hille tells
of a wonderful discovery in the shape
of a" compound that contains in solution every form of chemical composition in the human body. Failing that,
they might turn vegetarians, and live
on British Columbia apples. It would
be a grand advertisement for B. C.
fruit farms. Then, there is always a
chance for.a. pretty girl in New York
as we hear that Edna Goodrich (Mrs.
Nat Goodwin) has gone on a tour in
vaudeville, leaving the ever verdant
Nat footloose in thc matrimonial
field' once more.
A much heralded comedy entitled
"Seven Days" played to a full house
at the Victoria theatre this week. The
advance notices commended it as a
"brilliant comedy, scintillating with
wit in every line, keeping the audience in paroxysms of laughter from
start to finish. The scintillating wit
began with one of the lady characters
drinking a cocktail with disastrous
results, or as in her own words, "it
made her wobbly." Such was the
start, but the Onlooker not being a
dramatic critic for the local press
and not having to echo the sentiments of the Advance Man or anybody else, got a tired feeling (partly
induced by the extra paroxysmal paroxysms of the person in the seat behind) and went wearily home without
seeing the finish.
Socialism and the Church are at
war! The Socialist member, Mr. Hawthornthwaite has aroused the just ire
of the Reverend T. Heneage by
branding the Boy Scouts movement
as a training for future butchers and
"murderers." It is to be hoped that
no such sanguinary results as murders will ensue from the healthy outdoor training that the Boy Scouts
are receiving. No doubt the Reverend
gentleman who has taken up the cudgels so stoutly on behalf of the
Scouts, will endorse the theory that
"God helps those who help themselves, the devil looks after his own,"
and consign the Socialist member to
the right officer.
thoughtless licensee, or else the loss
of license. The trade cannot deny
that fair and ample warning has been
given, and it will be well for licensees throughout the Province to remember that any sale or gift of liquor
to a minor in British Columbia is distinctly an infraction of the law—that
a minor is any person under the age1
of twenty-one—and that the burden
of proof uder this act is always upon
the person accused thereunder. ,
PROTECTING MINORS
One feature of the Provincial liquor
law which latterly has been somewhat of a dead letter insofar as its
enforcement in the Coast cities is
concerned, is that prohibiting the sale
or gift of intoxicants of any sort to
minors—a minor being distinctly and
specifically defined as any person under the age of twenty-one. No one in
touch with conditions as they are in
the cities, can bc unaware that this
Provincial prohibition is seldom given
a thought by barmen unless the extreme youth of the prospective customer is obvious; or that many girls
under twenty-one years of age are
daily served with liquors in the restaurants, and never a question raised
as to thc age of the fair applicant for
a cocktail, or a glass of beer or wine.
It is understood that steps havc been
quietly taken of late to emphasize
that thc law as enacted is meant to
be obeyed, and carelessness in his
dealings in the particular feature of
the law may mean thc payment of
heavy      money    penalties    by     thc
Small Fur Catch
That circumstances in the north
point to one of the smallest fur
catches on record is the report
brought down by travellers and traders who havc been through these districts where the largest fur catches
are usually made. Caribou are more
plentiful this winter than ever before, and it is easy for the Indians
and Eskimos to kill them and supply
themselves with meat for the winter.
For this reason the northern natives
who are naturally a lazy lot, prefer
to sit around rather than tramp
through the snow looking after their
traps. Fur of all kinds is plentiful
in tHe north this winter, so the conditions will give the animals a chance
to multiply and recover from the inroads made upon their tribes during
past winters.
English Street Cars for Regina
The Canada Ford company of
Montreal has secured the contract
for the supply of the electric cars required for the street railway system
to be established by Regina as a
municipal enterprise. The company
is having the cars manufactured at
the works of the Brush company in
Loughbro, England. This is the first
time an English street car has entered the western Canadian field, and
is is probable that as an outcome the
company will establish branch works
in Montreal for supplying the Canadian market.
