Miss Sadie Craig Wins Special Prize, by Turning in Fifty
Miss Sadie Craig was awarded the Special Prize of $20.00 in gold offered by "The
Week" to the candidate turning in the greatest number of subscriptions from July 24th
to July 29th.   She secured fifty subscriptions.
Miss Ruth Bell of District Twelve secures the lead over all contestants in "The.
Week's" Great Voting Contest. Miss Bell has also made the greatest increase in votes
since last publication, increasing her vote by over twenty-nine thousand.
Miss Sadie Craig still retains second position, having overcome Miss McB. Smith,
the leader in the last publication of votes.
Miss McB. Smith stands third in today's vote and is only five thousand votes behind
the leader.
Miss Gladys Hocking has also increased her position from fifth to fourth place.
Miss Margaret Nyland, of District Twelve, has also made a wonderful increase in
her vote, still retaining sixth place.
Miss Maude Owens of District Four has also increased her position from ioth to
7th, also making remarkable gain in votes.
As will be seen by today's standing of Candidates, seven or eight of the candidates
are within easy distance of the leader. The contest is now on in full swing. Interest is
keen and excitement is high.
At 10 p.m. tonight the second period of the Vote Schedule closes. All subscriptions
turned in before that time will receive a greater number of votes per subscription than
if turned in at any later date. For the benefit of outside candidates and subscribers, all
subscriptions bearing the Postmaster's stamp of not later than 10 p.m. Saturday,
August sth, will receive this period's schedule.
From now on coupons published in the paper will count as five votes if cast before
the date of expiration on each.

put forward at the last Federal election,
that he be allowed to "finish his work."
When all interests are considered there can
be little doubt that at the present time Mr.
McBride's decision is a wise one. At the
moment British Columbia cannot spare him
for reasons which are perfectly well known
to everyone familiar with Provincial conditions. But his inability to accept the
nomination will not prevent him from being a leader in the fray; his personality
will dominate many constituencies even outside the Province and he has pledged himself to deliver a "solid seven" within its
borders to support Mr. Borden. Mr. McBride knows better than any man whether
this can be clone or not, and his assurance
leaves no doubt in the mind of those who
know him. The Week hopes that in a memorable and historic contest Mr. McBride
will find it possible to take pare in the campaign in Eastern Canada, especially in Ontario.    It is too soon to forecast the rela
tive strength of parties throughout the
Dominion, but if is certain chat a Conservative victory depends on very large gains
in Ontario. Meanwhile, Mr. McBride will
in a few days be busy organizing the campaign in British Columbia and preparing
to capture the two seats at present held
by the Government. Mis return will inspire his party with confidence, and that
spirit of happy optimism whicii possesses
him and which he unconsciously disseminates wherever he appears,
DISSOLUTION—In its issue of June
3rd The Week commented upon the
fact that soon after his arrival in
London Sir Wilfrid Laurier had cabled for
Mr. Fielding to join him. There was little
doubt in anyone's mind that this action was
due to thc discovery that British sentiment
was entirely opposed to the Reciprocity
Pact, and that British financial interests in
particular regarded ii as anti-British.  The
Week concluded its comment with the following paragraph: "The Week ventures the
prediction that the result will be an immediate appeal to the Canadian constituencies
before any further steps are taken toward
passing the Reciprocity arrangement, and
then Sir Wilfrid will make another discovery." In the same issue The Week said:
"It may answer the Liberal purpose to try
out the question on the economic basis, but
the ultimate issue is between British ancl
American ascendancy in Canadian trade affairs and on that issue the Conservative
party has no reason to anticipate an adverse
verdict!" Just how close a prediction The
Week made can now be determined. Sir
Wilfrid returned, "beat time" until the American Senate had passed the Reciprocity
Agreement, and then dissolved Parliament
so hurriedly as to upset the personal arrangements of many of the most important
members of his own parly. The inevitable
appeal to the constituencies is now to be
made. However much the Liberal Press
may continue to befog the issue, it is clear
ancl definite, ancl it will be the duty of the
Conservative Press ancl Conservative
speakers to hold it down to vital points.
The Conservative Party has never had a
better campaign cry, and for the first time
since 1896 is in a position assume the reins
of office. Everything depends on the conduct of the campaign, and it will be possible to speak with more certainty on this
subject in the course of a week or two
when the plan of campaign has been definitely planned. The appeal to the constituencies is a call to every man in the
Dominion to face the issue, to consider it
in all its bearings, to subordinate loca! or
trivial interests to the broader interests of
the Dominion and the Empire, and to show,
as The Week is convinced will be shown,
that Canada is big enough when face to face
with matters of Imperial moment to rise
above mere commercial considerations, and
to decide a great question on the highest
platform. Holding this view The Week has
no fear for the result of the contest, and
is as convinced now as when in an unhappy
hour Sir Wilfrid allowed himself to be
over-ruled by Mr. Fielding and Mr. Patterson and to father their Washington bantling, that Reciprocity will not be endorsed
bv the constituencies.
for entering into a full discussion
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's attitude on
the Naval Agreement has nol yet arrived,
although it will become one of the most
important features of the impending campaign. The Premier of Canada is, perhaps
unconsciously, widening the breach between
himself and those Canadians who are determined to maintain the closest possible relations between the Dominion and the
Motherland. Many thousands of Sir Wilfrid's fellow-countrymen, and, as The Week
believes, the majority, find the Reciprocity
Agreement most distasteful because of its
anti-British tendencies. Their suspicions of
Sir Wilfrid are not allayed when they read
the Xaval Agreement. Whatever else that
Agreement shows, it clearly demonstrates
that in his determination to maintain what
he is pleased to call the "autonomy" of the
Dominion he has abandoned the logical attitude of an Empire "partner." Sir Wilfrid
has been very fond of this phrase lately,
and has used all his eloquence to show that
Canada is no longer a "dependency" but a
"partner" with a number of states in an
Empire! There can be no partnership which
is not automatic; there can bc no partnership in which responsibility does not rest
upon the shoulders of every member of that
partnership, and obviously there can be no
partnership where any member is at liberty
on the eve of threatened bankruptcy to say
"I am not a partner." Borrowing tllis illustration from the commercial world we lind
I Continued 011 Pane 18} THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1911
Victoria has been advertised the
wide world over as the most beautiful city on the Pacific Coast; her
glories have been extolled, and her
many advantages described. One
most attractive item, however, has
up to the present date been omitted
and I propose to remedy this defect
without further delay. The peculiar
advantages possessed by the Capital
of British Columbia as a Paradise for
murderers has never been fully insisted upon, and yet 1 venture to
think that there are few cities of her
size and opulence where the murderer
can ply his exciting, if somewhat nefarious trade with greater advantage.
In saying this I am casting no aspersions on the local police; in fact I
am not thinking of them at all. I am
thinking of the many darksome places
whicii are to be found within a stone's
throw of public highways, where robbery with violence could be consummated with the utmost case. In fact,
were it not for the efficient policing
of the city I doubt not but that such
crimes would become so common as
to be worth no more than a hidden
paragraph in the daily papers. As it
is, the alien criminal finds it difficult
to get a landing here and so we live
in safety. I have on more than one
occasion comemnted on the unlighted
state of Superior street; it is some
time since I was on the street in question, but I have not the slightest hesitation in saying that no improvement
has been effected there. It was whilst
speaking of the blackness of Mac-
Cture street that a man on the street
gave me the idea of murders with
which to preface my paragraph. And
yet money enough is being spent on
street lighting. It would be a pity
to retard the lighting of those streets
close to the centre of the city in
order to serve the residents living
further out, but surely there must be
some means of "getting a move on."
View street is now being fitted with
a magnificent service of cluster lights.
A critic might say that the standards
arc being placed too close together
and that economy could have been
effected by placing them at alternate
intervals on opposite sides of the
street, but let that pass. Better to
have too many of them than too few.
In the meantime it would be well to
remember that just outside the civic
centre there are streets upon streets
which are no better lighted than were
the streets of London at the time
when thc "Mohawks" indulged their
after-dinner spirits with a little boisterous fun at the respectable citizens'
*    *    *
I have often thought that Victoria
enjoys a most enviable reputation for
being free from streei beggars and
men who, being injured through no
fault of their own, seek to support
themselves by selling small articles to
tiie charitable public. At the time of
writing, however, this reputation is iu
process of being shattered. There is
an unfortunate man who has lost both
his legs. I am ignorant of the circumstances which attended his injuries. For some little time he sat
and sold pencils on Government
street, but as he was always already
ensconced in his adopted place at the
times when I saw him, I am afraid
that it npver occurred to me to wonder how he travelled back and forth.
On the afternoon on which I write
these lines I saw this unfortunate
man twice and observed that in order to get from one place to another
he had literally to crawl along the
streets. His hands were sheathed in
slippers and largely through their
means he dragged his maimed body
over the sidewalks. Xow there is nobody who is more sorry for this poor
fellow than I am, but I do think that
tiie authorities should step in and
make proper provision for him. Perhaps it may be a proper tax on our
growing prosperity that we should
see such contrasts in our streets; we
kiiow that the richer and more pros
perous a community becomes the
more obvious is the difference between rich ancl poor, between physical fitness and unfitness. But is it
necessary that we in Victoria should
experience these contrasts as yet?
Are we not charitable enough to support in proper style those whom misfortune has overcome, as it has the
man referred to? We have an Old
Men's Home and wc have other institutions of a similar nature. Is there
no refuge of a character which would
look after the physically incapable?
•p   *   *
After writing the fore-going it may
not seem to be out of place for me
to comment on a new Fraternal Society which is being at present somewhat extensively advertised in Victoria. I see by posters ancl I hear on
my corner that the Loyal Order of
Lions is establishing a "den" in the
city. It so happens that one or two
men who are interested in this new
lodge are men whom I know personally, and I therefore have no hesitation in saying a good word for the
project. It would appear from the
prospectus that the Lions recognise
no political, religious or national distinctions. Colour is their only criterion. If you are a white man you
are eligible, ancl of course the whiter
you are in character, the more eligible
you become. The aims ancl obects of
the society as set forth in their
pamphlet seem to be worthy of all
praise, the prevailing motto being "to
help the fellow that's clown today."
*   *   *
Eggs are 40 cents a dozen. Awful,
isn't it? Ancl British Columbia is the
farmer's paradise and eminently suited to chicken farming. Oh skittles!
I don't know anything about farming
—chicken or otherwise, but I do
know that most people seem to agree
with me that 40 cents a dozen is an
iniquitous price to pay in August.
Is it that all our chicken farmers are
going on the wrong tack? However,
the point of this paragraph will appear now. A Mr. Devonshire who
has had great success in South Africa with a special preparation called
"Bloodsal" is now in the Province
ancl intends to start a campaign which
will introduce his prescription to all
the chicken farmers. He claims that
it ful fills all the requirements ancl substantiates his claims with figures. I
can only hope that some enterprising farmer will give his stuff a trial,
whereby we dwellers in cities—and in
shacks—may find relief from the almost prohibitive prices which we have
to pay at present.

An announcement of no small interest to Victorian musical lovers was
made in the Colonist of Wednesday
last. The Victoria Musical Club is
to unite with the Ladies' Musical
Club, and under the title of the Victoria Ladies' Musical Club will arrange a series of concerts throughout the coming season. It has long
been a sore point in the Capital that
though we are very musical "quite
aw'fly musical, don't you know," we
never manage to show it at quite the
right times. In fact Victoria has
been more than a by-word in the past
amongst people who really know, because her citizens have a habit of
never patronizing the right artists.
Let us hope that the amalgamation
will put all this right, ancl that in future the city will never have to be,
as she has been in clays gone by, the
sport of the unmusical.

The Empress Theatre
An impersonator is always a good
drawing card at the vaudeville house
ancl Herbert Charles this week has
been making the ladies envious with
his stock of gowns. As comic athletes the Randow Brothers are in
a class by themselves and have been
much appreciated. Miss Ambrose
gives an attractive musical selection
both vocal and instrumental. Perhaps the big act may be said to be
that of the Bell Boy Trio who combine dancing with humour in a delightful manner, except for people
who like to see things whizzing
around; for them Frank Hartley was
specially created and his "perpetual
motion" stunts at the Empress have
to be seen to be believed.
The Majestic Theatre
When Mr. Christie thinks it advisable to make a special advertisement
there is always something more especially "worth while" at the Majestic
Theatre. By the time that these
lines are on the press the first exhibition of a new and unique set of films
dealing with the construction of the
Panama Canal will be seen on the
screen. There will still be time for
readers who peruse this column on
Saturday to enjoy these pictures. The
audience is brought as close to the
work as if they were actually present
on the scene of action. All the various operations, the tools and the
men themselves are photographed
with a clearness and attention to detail whicii is unsurpassed.
The Crystal Theatre
The great Baby Contest at the Crystal Theatre has proven very popular
and all sorts and conditions of babies
under the limit of three years are
there for the audience to criticise and
vote on. Even if there were no good
pictures the Baby Show would be
worth going to see. But the usual
fine number of films has been reeled
off during the week, perhaps the most
sensational having been one entitled
"The Unloaded Gun," where the bad
man is caught with the time-honoured
old bluff and made to pay the penalty.
The Romano Theatre
The adventures of those inimitable
comedians "Mutt & Jeff," have again
been the theme of a set of films at
Romano's. A particularly interesting
picture was one showing the environments of Sorrento, that most charming summer resort of the Neapolitan.
Another big feature during the week
was a representation of the opera
"Aida," which was vividly depicted
and attracted much attention.

1 was, of course, enough to

Isby," said Miranda.
She was almost starting to tell me
it all over again, but recollecting that
that was not the subject in hand, she
changed her mind and hurried on.
"When we got home I made Molly
tell me all about it. The little goose
went off into high heroics. She actually fancies herself in love with the
beast—and when a girl of. Molly's age
gets that idea into her head you know
how difficult it is to get it out."
"About as difficult as it is to get it
out of any girl's head, I should imagine," 1 said. "But, Miranda, you
haven't yet told me what is the matter with thc man?"
"O nothing very original," said Miranda, developing an unexpected vein
of satire." He's just fast through
and through, and of course George
and I can't have Molly's name associated with his in any way. Old Colonel Heartherby knew of him in Honolulu, and it was really he who enlightened us about him. Why he was
believed there to have a wife living
in the Old Country and Heaven
knows what besides."
"Poor Mr. Bcnthrow," 1 murmured,
"at the mercy of all you scandalmongers. 1 know Colonel Heatherby,
my dear Miranda—and after all it may
not be true."
"O, if you are going to be funny
about it, Lctitia," said Miranda in an
offended voice, and she half rose from
her chair, but I put her gently back
"My dear," I said, "I wouldn't be
funny over such a serious subject for
the world."
She softened at that.
"Of course, I know as you haven't
any daughters of your own it is hard
for you to put yourself in my place
—but still I know you haye always
liked Molly, and I look upon you as
such a thorough woman or the world."
I smiled at the compliment—which
coming from such a source—was a
rather dubious one. Then, as is my
wont, T mentally withdrew from fhe
vision of Miranda—stout and comely,
mourning among the ruins of. her disorganized household, and considered
the problem before me. Presently 1
looked  up.
"In the first place," I said, "if 1
give you my advice will you take it?"
And Miranda, in the excitement of
the  moment,  promised  unreservedly.
"Let her see as much of him as possible for the next three months and
then come  to me again,"  I  said.
"See as much of him as possible,"
half shrieked Miranda, "why I have
forbidden her ever to see him again."
"Which was very foolish of you," 1
replied. "Surely you can see for
yourself that you will never break
the thing off in that way. Now my
recommendation to you is to take the
advice of St. Evremonde."
"St. who—?" said Miranda, and 1
knew she was searching her brain for
mention of the saint in the Anglican
Church  calendar.
"A very wise man," I went on,
"who knew human nature much better than either you or I, Miranda. He
said: "The best way to overcome our
vices is to indulge them." Let Molly
see as much of this man as she likes
and if he is the sort of individual you
describe, I give her credit for possessing enough brains to discern his
unsuitability as a future husband as
quickly as  anyone."
"But it's so risky," sighed Miranda.
"Of course it is," I rejoined. "You
might almost call it kill or cure. But
1 am confident as to its ultimate success. Why, Miranda Harvey, don't
you know that half the unsuitable
marriages in this world would never
have come about had the two principles seen enough of each other before they took the fatal step? You
must know that as well as I do."
"I believe you are right," she said.
Then she rose from her chair and
kissed me solemnly. "Good-bye, Le-
titia, dear," she said. "You have
cheered me up immensely—and Lctitia—I will take your advice."
"Of course you will," 1 responded
cheerily, "and send Molly to see me
one day soon."
The latter surprised me with a visit
next morning. Flinging two sunburnt
arms about my neck she kissed me
with all the affection of eighteen very
much in love.
"You dear. old. thing—you can't

If I had been asked a year ago
whom I considered the best writer
of current fiction I should have said
"William J. Locke," who in at least
three of his books—The Morals of
Marcus Ordeyne, Septimus and The
Beloved Vagabond — approached
nearer to Meredith than any novelist
of the last two decades. If I were
asked the same question today I think
I should answer "Arnold Bennett."
The reason for this is two-fold.
Locke has deteriorated and his "Idol"
and "The Usurper" are so far below
the level of his best work that the
horrid dread assails me that he may
have fallen into the Kipling rut.
Meanwhile, it is not unfitting to say
that a new star has arisen, for Arnold Bennett's series of tales of thc
Five Towns have attracted worldwide attention and not a few conspicuous critics have begun to institute comparisons between him and
I have read all his published books
without detecting any resemblance to
Dickens unless it be a marvellous gift
of noting and describing details and
unconsidered trifles. In analysis of
character and incident he betrays
powers of observation which arc little
short of marvellous; his elaboration
of character is absolutely exhaustive
and yet he never becomes monotonous or uninteresting ,and therein lies
his great charm, that he is able to
invest the most ordinary characters
with a picturesqueness that challenges attention and admiration.
In this respect he displays in no
small measure one of the most remarkable traits of Jane Austen. His
pictures are finished portraits. One
of Bennett's finest points is that he
is able to find good in everything.
No character is altogether bad or irredeemable, and I have not yet laid
down one of his books without feeling that condemnation springs largely from failure to understand.
The book that I have just finished,
"Clayhanger," is equal to any which
he has written and herein lies the
evidence of Arnold Bennett's great
gift; he has written four or five books
on life in the Five Towns, which
means the pottery towns of North
Staffordshire. They all deal with
middle-class people; they are little
more than the chronicles of middle-
class life; there is no sensational plot
and hardly any dramatic situation to
help the story along. Yet the last
book is as fresh as the first and
makes a vivid impression by its obvious sincerity and fidelity.
In one respect Arnold Bennett resembles Dickens; his characters will
live and they will live because they
are true to nature. 1 have found his
books a splendid corrective to dissatisfaction and discontent. There is
nothing "preachy" about them; indeed, the author is decidedly heterodox as thc word is applied to religious beliefs. On some future occasion 1 should like to set forth more
fully what I gather to be his philosophy of life, because the carefully
thought out opinions of such a man
are important, but it will occupy far
more space than 1 can afford in connection with this review.
"Clayhanger" is a book dealing
with thc life of its hero from the
cradle to the time of his marriage,
when he is about forty years of age.
Incidentally, it glances backwards at
his father's origin which was of the
humblest and most obscure character.
Rescued from abject poverty and the
workhouse, Clayhangcr's father worked his way upwards through various
humble occupations until he became
a successful printer and publisher and
accumulated a moderate fortune, lie
was   an   uneducated,   narrow-minded
man, with some generous impulses,
and not a little ambition, especially
for his son. His business became his
idol, but always as a means to an
end, the end being the succession of
his son. Every phase of existence in
such a home as Darius Clayhanger
ruled is faithfully chronicled, and one
is presented with a microscopic study
of tbe character and evolution of
every member of the household,
which included Edwin, the son, three
daughters, an aunt and a sister-in-
It is t|uite natural 'that Edwin
should have had a soul above the
printer's office. In his earliest adolescence he inclined to architecture, but
tlie ambition was ground out of him
by the despotic determination of his
father, and he accepted the inevitable.
When Edwin was about twenty his
father died and he succeeded to the
business, whicii he enlarged and built
up into one of prominence and importance. Not the least interesting
part of the book deals with the love
romance of Edwin's life. He loved
an extraordinary girl, one of the plain,
brilliant kind, who keeps a man on
tenter-hooks and inevitably jilts him.
Hilda Lessways is a finely drawn
character; her very inconsistencies
constitute her charm, and after passing through vicissitudes which extended over twenty years she finally
achieved the one consistent act of her
career in surrendering.
In closing a memorable book the
author announces that in the autumn
of 1911 he will publish a novel dealing with the history of Hilda Less-
ways up to the day of her marriage
with Edwin, to be followed by another book dealing with the marriage.
I can only stand aghast at the fertility and resource of Arnold Bennett
who, after having written half a
dozen notable books in one "milieu"
and with one environment, calmly
contemplates the production of two
others almost immediately. I have
no hesitation in saying that the
author's fame now rests on a firm
basis; he has come to his own and is
already recognised as one of the
ablest writers of the day—a verdict
which I unhesitatingly endorse.

"Good enough," I answered rather
But my sympathies were with Miranda, for I knew that although she
might be presenting a Roman matron front to the world, inwardly she
was having a very bad time of it.
Of course as the weeks went on
and Miranda remained loyal to the
doctrine of St. Evremonde, the usual
things were said by the usual kind
of people. Only the two principals
in the case made the most of the
golden moments and were blissfully
Towards the end of August I went
up country for a few weeks. Shortly
after my return I met Miranda down
town on a shopping expedition.
"Look here," she said, after we had
exchanged the usual polite commonplaces about the weather and the
state of our health—"How long is
this cure of yours supposed to take?
It's two months now since the Tennis dance and Molly seems to be as
much in love with the man as ever.'
"O give them time," I answered
cheerily. "You can't hurry an affair
of that kind. It's not like a real estate deal, you know,—and, by the way,
talking of real estate "
"We were not talking of real estate," said Miranda firmly, "and as
for giving them time—why, surely
two months is long enough for her
to find out whether she really cares
for him or not. I tell you 1 am tired
of being asked when the engagement
is to be announced—it's making her
father ancl me look ridiculous, Le-
"O well," I said, in a futile effort
to cheer her up, "surely it's better
for you to look ridiculous for a month
or two than for little Molly to be unhappy for the rest of her life. Think
of that, Miranda."
"I do think of it," she retorted
grimly. "It's only the thought of
that that's kept me from having the
door shut in the man's face a dozen
I saw her again later on in the clay
and she crossed the street to speak to
"I've made up my mind on the subject, Letitia," she informed me in her
mothers' meeting voice. I'm going to
give them just a month longer, then
I'm going to tell Molly that things
have gone quite far enough, ancl I'm
going to pack her off to visit my sister in the Old Country."
"Which is the modern and Western
equivalent for the mediaeval convent,
I suppose," I said. "Let's hope it
won't be necessary anyhow."
The month was a busy one for me
and I saw little of Miranda. Occasionally we would meet at a garden
party or tea, and then I would have
to turn away hastily as T heard her
say to some enquiring friend—"Yes,
he's such a charming man—but you
mustn't really talk about an engagement. We hope to keep our little
Molly with us for quite a while yet."
And still more occasionally the little
lady herself would dance in to sec me
—so radiantly happy that it was hard
not to sympathize with her as she sat
and told me how beautifully everything was going—what a dear Anthony was—and how quite too delightfully Father and Mother were behaving.
Well, the month came to an end,
and every time my telephone rang 1
expected to receive some message
from Miranda. But the days went by,
and T heard nothing. Then one morning I was startled out of a delicious
sleep by a violent peal.
"Halloo!" 1 queried sleepily.
"Is that you, Letitia. Arc you up
It was Miranda's voice, ancl even
over the wire I could hear how excited she was.
."Up yet?" I replied, rather shortly,

only half past seven ancl that I saw
you at the Benedicts' dance last night,
I shouldn't have thought such a question was necessary. What ou earth
are you doing up so early anyway?"

my remarks," and I am going

the difference in labour cost is 63 cents per ton in favour of Canada.
In news-print paper the effect of wood cost is not so clear, because
here the raw material is pulp and not wood, but if we take 80 per cent,
of the difference we find in the wood cost in ground-wood pulp, and 20
per cent, of the difference in case of sulphite pulp, we have $4.71 as
the amount of the difference in the cost of news-print paper in the two
countries, which is due to the difference in wood costs.
The average cost of production of news-print in Canada is $27.53
per ton, in the United States $32.88. The difference is $5.35, of which
$4.71 is accounted for by difference in cost of wood as raw material in
the pulp, leaving a difference of 64 cents, only eight cents of which
is covered by the difference in manufacturing labour.
Some interesting details of the efficiency of labour in the Canadian
pulp and paper industry are given in the Tariff Board's report.
Canadian paper ancl pulp mills are equipped, as a rule, with the latest
and most improved machines made by American manufacturers in the
United States. The general managers and superintendents are, for the
most part, Americans of wide experience. Those who are Canadians
by birth are men who, like the Americans, have had long years of
training in American paper and pulp mills. The skilled men, the
machine tenders, and other hands who operate the paper machines are,
as a rule, Americans brought from the United States for the purpose.
They are paid American rates of wages, although in several instances
the rates are for a 12-hour shift instead of for an 8-hour shift, as in
Eastern United States. Excepting for the comparatively small number
of skilled men necessary to operate the paper machines and the
mechanics employed on repairs, the great majority of the men employed in the paper and pulp mills are classed as unskilled, and receive
the pay of unskilled labourers. A study of the comparative wage
tables in the report shows that the average rates of pay of unskilled
men are lower in Canada than in the United States.
It would seem, then, that with modern mills, American machinery,
American-trained managers and superintendents, ancl American skilled
operatives, together with lower rates of wages for unskilled men, the
Canadian manufacturing labour cost per unit of production in the
modern and well-equipped mills of Canada would be considerably
lower than in the modern and well-equipped mills of the United States.
The tables show, however, that the Canadian labour cost per ton
of news-print paper is only slightly lower on the average. That 41.5
per cent, of the tonnage reported in the United States carries a
manufacturing labour cost of less than $3 per ton, while 54.7 per cent.
in Canada falls under $3. The total average for the United States is
$3.27 as against $3.19 in Canada, notwithstanding Canada's advantage
in average equipment. This indicates that there is greater efficiency
and experience in the first-class mills of the United States.
With the exception of the machine tenders the labour employed in
Canadian mills is French-Canadian. The mass of French-Canadians
have been workers on the farm and in the forests and almost entirely
out of touch with industrial life in shops, mills, or factories.
They have had no opportunity for systematic training in manufacturing establishments, and Canadian mill managers do not seem to
realize that the men in the log-pond, the log-deck, the barking-room,
the grinders, the wet machines, ancl the numerous other unskilled positions are just as essential in their required places for the manufacture
of paper as the skilled paper-machine tenders. Close inquiry of managers, superintendents, ancl foremen elicited uniform statements that
the French-Canadians transferred from the farm and forests were not
as yet dependable or efficient. They had not, it was stated, as yet
acquired the degree of responsibility essential in every position and
subdivision in the process of manufacture nor the close ancl undivided
attention to duty required.
It was further affirmed by managers that this irresponsibility
extended to those who were placed in the position of minor foreman.
The answer to the statements of the inefficiency of the French-Canadian labourers was the pointing out of numerous instances of efficiency
of a high order in the higher grades of employment. It is charged that
American-trained superintendents give preference to Americans in the
skilled positions, and that no opportunity has been afforded to French-
Canadians to advance, ancl it was pointed out that where strikes
occurred and the French-Canadian given a chance he had succeeded.
In a few establishments, in consequence of strikes or threatened
strikes by Americans, a policy of training French-Canadians in the
skilled occupations has been adopted. At present the high labour cost
per ton is owing largely to the fact that the Canadian unskilled
labourers do not accomplish as much per man as the labourers in the
American mills. This is, however, a matter which in time would
correct itself, ancl it is hardly to be doubted, with an incentive to acquire
industrial training and skill ancl the necessity on the part of manufacturers for imparting such skill, the Canadian paper manufacturers
will ultimately train the French-Canadian labour to the point where
the manufacturers will reap the full fruit of their best equipments.
The longer and colder winters in Canada also add much to the
labour cost, more men being required to handle the frozen lap pulp
and other materials, the outdoor movements of men ancl animals being
impeded for a longer time by the frost and snow.
The effect of the long and severe winter is shown in the following
labour cost per ton rc news-print paper each month during the summer
ancl winter months in a Canadian mill:—
Wages paid per
Month of Year ton of paper
April, 1910       $3 38
May, 1910        3 54
June, 1910        3 60
July, 1910        3 76
August, 1910         3 43
September,  1910          3 38
October, 1910         4 45
November, 1910         4 22
December, 1910      5 10
January, 1911         5 33
These figures represent the total pay-roll cost, not merely manufacturing labour cost. That is to say, all repair and upkeep ancl all
other labour is in this statement of wages per ton of paper. It must
not, therefore, be compared with manufacturing labour costs as shown
on paper in the tables of cost.

In connection with the Tariff Board's report, it is interesting to
recall that the forests of Scandinavia, Canada's principal competitor in
the production of pulp ancl news-print, are gradually being reduced.
The United States depends upon Canada for about a million cords of
wood per year for its pulp mills. It is not prophesying too much to
state that Canada will shortly supply more pulp and paper for the
world's newspaper presses than any other country. The manufacture
of the higher grades of paper will be a slower development, but no less
Men who are in touch with the crop situation are confident that
200,000,000 bushels of wheat will be harvested, ancl some estimates
place the crop higher than this figure. Railroad ancl immigration
officers are already calculating on how to bring out 40,000 harvest
hands. Two hundred million bushels is twice as much wheat as the
West has ever had in one harvest, and the acreage of oats, barley ancl
flax has been greatly increased. The problem of how to handle the
crop of 1911 is becoming an interesting matter.

Grand Trunk Pacific
The construction of the new transcontinental railway—the Grand Trunk
Pacific—is to-day opening up new towns that in the very near future will be
large and important cities. Just as the advent of the pioneer transcontinental
line—The Canadian Pacific—opened and built up divisional points such as
Hrandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc., so will the new line of the Grand
Trunk make large divisional points of the towns we now  ocer for sale.
We have secured the ai^ncy from the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC RAILWAY CO. for the towns mentioned below and the shrewd investors who can
recognize the many advantages for investment in these towns at the prices of
today, will share in lhe large profits that will accrue as a result of their rapid
development. No other investment is so safe and profitable, and if you want
to get your portion of the wealth Western Canada's development is creating,
take advantage of this opportunity uow before it is too late.
Prices of lots in all of these divisional points arc $75, $100, $150, $200, $250
and $?oo on easy monthly payments, no interest and no taxes till 1912, with a
5 per cent, discount for cash,
MELVILLE—The first Saskatchewan divisional point on the G. T. P. and
the largest new town on the line between Winnipeg and Edmonton. Located
in a rich agricultural districi, an important railroad and distributing centre.
Melville bids fair to become one of the important cities of  Western Canada.
WATROUS—The mccca of the health seeker, situate near the shores of
the famous Little Manitou Lake, and in the centre of one of the finest fanning
sections of Saskatchewan.
BIGGAR—The opportunity of opportunities, located in thc heart of a
wonderfully rich and fertile agricultural district, and with railway facilities that
guarantee a future, being not only one of the most important Grand Trunk
Pacific divisional points ou the main line between Winnipeg and Edmonton, but
is the junction of the branch lines of the Grand Trunk Pacific to Battleford
and Calgary, which will be hurried to completion at an early date, The C. P. R.
runs through  Biggar, and all C.  P. R. trains stop there.
TOFIELD—The terminus of the branch line from Calgary, situate near the
shores of the Beaver Lake. The discovery of natural gas and of clay, and having
at its door several square miles underlaid with lignite coal, promise the development at  Tofield of important  manufacturing  industries.
EDSON—The last prairie divisional point on main Hue of Grand Trunk
Pacilic, and the gateway to the Peace River Country. Rich in natural resources,
Edson lots fulfill every requirement  for safe and profitable investment.

of the steering knuckles on

not only makes steering remarkably

The unique construction of the rear
axle—one-piece drawn steel with
floating drive shafts—adds greatly to
the strength of this important member. The one-piece construction is
unusual, even among cars of the
highest price. An inspection plate of
large size permits inspection and adjustment of the bearings, or even the
removal of the entire differential as
a unit.
The strain and shock of starting by

McLaughlin Buick
The McLaughlin Buick have numerous Models to suit everyone's
pocket, but the outstanding feature is
the "1912 Model 27". This car is
without doubt a marvel in many ways,
and has a great number of useful
improvements that appeal to the Motor public. The engine—30-l-LP,—is
of a new design, having cylinders
cast in pairs size 4x4 ins. with grease
caps on the tappet rod tops of each
cylinder; the radiation is insured by
a large radiator and a centrefugal
pump. The ignition is the sy'ncrin-
ised type, all parts of the engine are
lubricated by a gear pump that pumps
the oil from the base of the crank
case to all the working parts. The
adjustment of the valves is very ac-
cessable, one wrench being all that
is necessary. The steering is of the
worm nut type and all adjustment
can be made from one nut at the base
of the steering column. Transmission is in sliding gears, selective type,
with a multiple disc clutch. The control levers are on top of steering ring;
The White Motor Truck
The want of every up-to-date
merchant in Victoria, who is using
horses as the means of delivering
his merchandise is to see, and to have
this truck demonstrated to him so
that he may realise how it saves
over horses.
Several years ago, when men began
to see that horses were becoming
unequal to their task, necessity
brought out the motor truck. Ever
since it has been battling for recognition. But now the motor truck's
apprenticeship has been served—it has
been  tried and  has passed all  tests.
The success of motor cars for business purposes awaited only the production of a serviceable, efficient and
economical engine—an engine that
would stand the grind of years of
continuous hard work. Such an engine is used in WHITE trucks. It
is primarily a truck engine—it was
designed  for  the  purpose  it  serves.
The WHITE engine is of the long
stroke type.   This feature of its crn-
under his conditions. But the question is solved—The White Company
have hundreds of trucks in operation
in almost every conceivable kind of
business — under practically every
known condition—and there is not a
single owner to whom we could not
refer a prospective buyer. Not one
has been disappointed, but otV.' the
contrary each has found that* the
White truck has exceeded his expectations.
White trucks serve their owners,
first of all, by increasing the service.
They make it possible to do things
you have never done before—to secure trade you were unable to reach
—to be prompt where you were compelled to be dilatory before—to increase your service and thereby increase your business.
Under the majority of conditions,
White trucks increase the economy

are conditions where trucks only increase   the   service.     The   truck   re-

rear—and very flexible. They eliminate the side-sway of the body which
is noticeable with every other form

Car Climbs Difficult Flight of Steps
"Going up," cried Max Gottberg
as he threw in the clutch of his Model
T Roadster, and the little car began
to climb the steep flight of stairs of
the Y, M. C. A. Building at Columbus,
Nebraska. He knew his car perfectly, also its wonderful climbing ability, so just to satisfy a crowd of unbelieving   spectators,   he   started   up

red Model T's, each driven by one of
the department chiefs, racing through
the crowded streets of New York, lire

Max is the Ford dealer at Columbus, and he is a hustler—always up
to some advertising scheme that will
give publicity to his car. Last month
he" decided he would drive his roadster to the Y. M. C. A. Building ancl
climb the stone steps. Thc feat was
considered impossible by many who
had heard of it, but Mr. Gottberg
was decided, so on a Monday afternoon he successfully accomplished the
climb, as shown in the above reproduction.
Some very interesting facts will be
noticed by carefully studying the picture. Each step, of which there are
sixteen in number, is eight inches
high, and rise to a height of nine feet
and four inches after the second tier
is reached. The base of the triangle
formed by these steps is thirteen feet
even, which forms an angle, at which
thc car climbs, of 37.6 degrees, making a grade of 41.36 per cent.
Notice the picture. There is but
one to two inches space for traction
of the rear wheels on each step. The
drive wheels arc able to secure pulling power on each step but for a
moment; first because the space
which they touch is so narrow; second, because as soon as a step is
reached the wheels bound in the air
and spin, losing much of the power
and causing the car to jump and slide
rather than move in a steady gait.
In the picture you will notice that the
front wheels are in the air spinning,
proving the fore-going.

The Tudhope Organization and the
Everitt C^T---Made Entirely in Canada
After tive years of successful manufacturing the Tudhope Carriage Factory of Orillia, Ontario, was totally
destroyed by fire in 1009. Forty-live
c'.ays later a new 4-storey brick factory, covering 172,800 square feet,
was erected upon the old factory site.
In building this new factory an addition was made—a motor plant, now
engaged in making the "Everitt" Motor Cars, being installed. The Tud-
hopes of Orillia, together with
Messrs. Everitt, Metzger and Kelly of
Detroit, who are the men most
interested in the manufacturing of
tlu- Everitt, represent an accumulation of "years of progressive experience." By combining what they have
accomplished through exhaustive experiment, with their previous knowledge of design and construction it has
heen possible to create in the Everitt,
a car which is most original as well
as practical its fundamental points.
The car being made entirely in Canada, is sold at exactly United States
;>rices for the ear and its "Special
Tudhope" equipment. By this policy
the Tudhope Motor Company at a
stroke puts Canadian buyers on the
same footing as United States buyers.
By giving a really complete equipment it puts buyers on a better footing than partly-equipped car buyers,
Canadian  or  American.
An advance of $150 to $400 is saved

intrinsic value—merely paying a premium—means that every dollar in the
"Everitt" buys actual value or service. "Everitt" comfort, dependability, wear, service, simplicity and quality of material are delivered to the
value of  $1,750 in  full.
This "intrinsic value" price puts the
"Everitt" first in choice among all
cars. The "complete equipment" feature puts the "Everitt" first in practicability and desirability among all
The car as put on the Canadian
market by the Tudhope Organization
is a car adapted to Canadian conditions by its construction and design.
But thc manufacturers have gone further, and made it absolutely adaptable to  Canadian  needs and  use.
The cars have a eleven and one-
quarter-inch road clearance to meet
conditions on the roughest road. They
have tiie latest approved long stroke-
motor, which saves gasoline. This
motor is of simple construction, which
avoids many troubles and repairs,
over 150 parts being saved as compared with the average automobile
motor. This meets the Canadian conditions of full supervision and care
by the owner alone. The motor is
compact, simplified to the highest degree, self-lubricating, hung by the
main casting instead of at cramp
shaft bearings. This lowers the centre of gravity, and makes it possible
for the owner to get at the inside of
the "Everitt" motor without disturbing it ill the frame. Any part of the
motor can be reached at any time
with the minimum of trouble.
To minimize tire troubles of any
kind the "Everitt" saves weight in
motor and chassis, has large 34-inch
wheels, has these wheels fitted with
Universal Kims, and furthermore, as
regular equipment, carries an extra
complete tire, with inner and outer
tube, holders and cover. This enables an owner to make an extraordinary tire mileage, and to have his
"Everitt" car in commission at all
times on all roads. This policy
makes the Canadian owner independent by preventing or forestalling all
tire troubles. The Universal Rims
used take any make of tire, in any
emergency. This safeguards the
driver who can use a borrowed tire,
or take any tire obtainable. The
car by its light weight of 2,100 lbs.,
and its spring equipment of 40-inch
full-scroll elliptic springs, with shock
absorbers, at rear and semi-elliptic
springs at front axle, meets all possible Canadian road conditions in the
best manner for long service and comfort. Its perfect spring equipment
takes  up  all  road  shock.
The manufacturing methods in the
production of the "Everitt" are different and far in advance of former
Canadian practice. Any parts in the
factory stock-room and the parts on
your neighbour's "Everitt' are absolutely similar, to 1-1000 of an inch,

What a Motor Car Means to the Average Family
Dickens Memories
lak Mouse,  formerly the seaside
|;ncc of Charles Dickens, was
offered for sale by public auc-
\i Broadstairs on July 5. Event-
it was withdrawn,  the  reserve
I not being reached.
"So much has been said lately about
extravagance in the purchase of motor
cars—so much that is without foundation in fact—that it seems proper
for someone to enlighten those who
are still of the opinion that a
motor car is purely a luxury," says
Mr. J. M. Wood, Manager of The
Wood Motor Co., Ltd., local dealers
for the Chalmers Motor Co.
"I do not deny that any passenger
car is a luxury in the sense that it is
always a luxury to get where one
wants to go swiftly, surely and with
the utmost comfort. But a motor car
is 'not an extravagance.
"I often wonder how many of the
critics who have made the loudest
tirades against the motor car have
taken time to realize the many benefits which a car brings to the average
"Perhaps the greatest benefit which
a motor car brings to any user is the
open air recreation. We all know
that we ought to go out of doors
into the fresh air and sunshine, but
most of us do not do it until we are
ordered away by a physician, unless
we use a motor car. A car probably
takes every member of the family into the open air more than any other
agent one could name.
"Think of the benefit to the head of
the family in going to and from business i" ■*•■ car. Think how he gets to
the office each morning with the
sparkle of the sunshine ancl fresh air
in his blood and brain; how much
keener he is for the problems which
confront him. Then, too, a motor
car is a great saving of time to the
business man. He can make his business calls in about, one-third the time
that is required by a street car or a
horse and buggy. With a motor car
hc has always at his disposal a ready
means of entertainment for customers
and business associates. The car
gives him more time away from his
business, enables him to get out into
the country and gives him the mental and physical exercise of driving.
Among his business associates he
gains in prestige; and the result of
all of this air and exercise is a good
appetite, better digestion, better
humour and better health.
"And the rest of the family benefit
proportionately. A motor car enables
the wife and daughters to make social calls and to entertain without
interference with the usual household
duties. For the son, a motor car has
the educative value of understanding
and caring for a wonderful piece of
machinery. It means clean, open air
recreation and decent entertainment
in the company of other members of
the family.
"The man with a motor car lives a
fuller life than if he did not have one.
And he gives fuller life to every
member of his family. A motor car
means more experiences, more sensations. Its users do more things. They
have wider interests. Long life is
not a question of years so much as
it is of experiences and accomplishments. And yet motor cars are great
factors in increasing the average span
of any man's years because they promote health through outdoor life.
"None can deny that a motor car
brings the benefits I have named.
They are self-evident results. Therefore I cannot see how the purchase
of an automobile can be called an
extravagance. For after all, the man
who has not a motor car is paying
for one anyhow. He is paying for
it in the time he loses that a car
would save him, in the opportunities
that get away, in the fresh air and recreation that a car would give, and
which he cannot deny himself except
at  his  peril.
"Whatever we really need we pay
for whether we actually own it or
not. One might get along without an
overcoat in the winter but he would
pay  for  one    just    the   same.     He
would pay with discomfort and colds.
"The automobile has been developed to keep pace with the age that
utilizes the telephone, telegraph, wireless, express trains, electric lights,
trolley cars, adding machines, newspapers, typewriters and all of the
other wonderful machines of modern
civilization. It certainly is no extravagance to keep abreast of the times,
and the man who purchases a good
motor car will invariably find it a
a good investment."

A special report on the correct delineation and use of the armorial
bearings of the City of London has
been issued by the City Corporation.
The City motto, "Domine dirige
nos," dates, it has been found, from
1633, in which year also was the first-
known use of the dragons. The
short Roman sword in the first quarter of the shield is the sword of St.
Paul, patron saint of the City. The
shield (the proper colour of its field
being silver) is charged with the plain
flat cross of St. George, and the
colour is red. This conjunction of
the cross of St. George and the
sword of St. Paul, it is conjectured,
is intended to typify England and
London, its capital.

the result.
I have hauled from the

average of forty tons a day
with  this  truck  and   it   has
>een  eminently  satisfactory.
'hat means, that iu a distance of a mile and a quarter
we actually lift these loads
520 feet in the air besides
the distance traversed by us,
and not even the radiator
has heated up under this extraordinary test, and the car
can ne worked to its fullest

show our car working under
these conditions, as a demonstration to others, I shall be
Happy to accommodate you,

(Reprintedfrom the Financier and Bulfionist, London, Lng, July 11)
li The third of the series of City lun
cheons  to   Colonial   public   meu,   organised  by  the  Trade  and   Industry
li Committee of the Royal Colonial  In
stitute, was held yesterday at Dc
Keyser's Royal Hotel, Blackfriars,
when the Hon. Richard McBride, K.
C, Premier of British Columbia, deli livered an address on the resources
and the opportunities for capital that
exist in that Province of the Dominion of Canada. Lieut.-General Sir J.
Bevan Edwards, chairman of the
Council of the Institute, presided, and
1 there was a large and representative
company present, including Sir Robert I'erks, the Hon. J. II. Turner
(Agent-General for British Columbia), Sir Cornthwaite Rasoh (late

The Premier's Address
Xo time is lost at these luncheons,
which are so arranged as to occupy
not more than one hour.    There are
im toasts, and as  soon as the short
menu  had  been   discussed,   Mr.   McBride commenced his address.    After
a few words of congratulation for the
Royal Colonial Institute, the Premier
of British Columbia said he felt sure
that all  present  had  some  considerable knowledge of the province which
be   represented.     He   made   bold   to
say that he did not think there was
another section of the British Empire
where there was so much territory of
all kinds of natural wealth under one
responsible Government as there was
today   in   British   Columbia,   and   he
would go further, and say that he did
not believe there was a section of the
Empire  where  there  were  the  same
varied resources in the same abundance.   They had the largest and most
valuable   timber   resources,   and   the
most valuable coal resources, and he
was quite satisfied that the same observation  applied  to the  fisheries of
the  country.    With  regard  to  horticulture ancl agriculture they had some
of  the   most  productive   soil   in   the
whole  world.    The  fruit  exhibitions
had   shown   what   British   Columbia
was capable of producing, and there
were   millions   of  aeres   of   valuable
land to be tilled which might be expected to produce crops in abundance.
British Columbia's Wealth
Having made statements so specific, it was necessary that he should
say something by way of illustration
to drive them home. Perhaps the
most striking evidence in this regard
was that, man for man, British Columbia produced more wealth than
any other part of the Dominion. With
a population of not yet half-a-million
of people, British Columbia had the
second  largest  revenue  of  any  pro
vince of Canada, and it was not improbable that at the end of the next
fiscal year the revenue would be the
largest of the Dominion. With regard to the fisheries he had it on
excellent authority that more men
were employed in the fisheries of
British Columbia than in the three
Maritime Provinces of Canada. Last
year the production of the province
in mines, manufactures, timber, agriculture and fisheries was $100,742,000,
a very tidy sum when they considered the population and the extent
of thc territory. The timber output
last year was valued at $17,000,000.
If there was one industry more than
another in British Columbia that
might be considered in its early infancy it was lumber. They attached
today large values to their timber,
but he was fully convinced that those
values, which might be regarded as
rather abnormal, would in a few years
to come be looked upon as reasonable
beyond measure. They had millions
upon millions of acres, whilst the
quality was the best that could be
A Word to Investors
Whilst there were such abundant
opportunities for investment he
hoped thc capitalists of this country
would exercise reasonable caution.
They in British Columbia wanted the
British people to know what they
were doing. They wanted the people in London who proposed to do
business with them to have a legitimate return for every dollar invested,
ancl tbe same remark applied to the
land, fisheries and mines of the country. Having referred to the wonderful resources of British Columbia, the Premier said his story would
not be complete without some reference to the climate. Despite the reports they may have received, he
maintained that they had one of the
best climates in the world, ancl one
that would make for a strenuous and
active citizenship. From his own
knowledge of Prince Rupert and the
adjoining territory, and with the developments promised by the Grand
Trunk Pacific, he had no hesitation
in saying that within \\\<e years those
who wished to seek a new home
would find none better than at Prince
Rupert. Having referred to the sport
obtainable in British Columbia, the
Premier said that, as regards the
scenery, there were pictures that no
artist could paint, ancl which it would
be idle for him to attempt to describe.
In regard to education, they had a
public and State school system second to none, and they were now arranging for the establishment in 1913
of a University, which would be able
to take its place side by side with
any similer institution in the whole
Empire. When they considered the
developments of the Grand Trunk,
the Canadian Northern ancl the Canadian Pacific Railways, and remembered the early completion of the
Panama Canal he felt sure that no
person claiming any familiarity with
British Columbia could come to any
other conclusion than that it was one
of the most promising fields for investment and settlement in the whole
world. And in the development of
Western Canada, they in British Columbia were not forgetful of the
Homeland. They were very grateful
for all that had been done for them
in the past, ancl they were firm in
their determination to take their part
in the support of one .King, one flag
ancl one Empire.
A Question and Answer
The Chairman having intimated
that the Premier would be pleased
to answer any questions, one of the
company asked: "Why did the British Columbia Government raise the
price of Government lands 100 per
cent, by a recent Order in Council?"
The answer came pat: "Because, it
was goocl business for the Government to do so."
Vote of Thanks
In proposing the usual vote of
thanks, the Chairman said they had
in Mr. McBride not only the Prime
Minister of British Columbia, but one
who was destined to play an important part in the future of the great
Dominion of Canada. From an experience extending over fourteen
years, he could testify that there was
no   part   of   the   British   Empire   in
which investors would receive
sympathetic treatment, not only fj
the members of the Government,
from   all   the   departmental   offic
than in British Columbia.
Praise for the Agent-General
In responding, the Premier refet
to the work of the Agent-Genera
this   country,  and  was  delighted
hear him spoken of in such splei
ternis.    As an old colleague of
Turner's, it had been a source ofl
tense pleasure to learn from so ml
people  the  high  regard  ancl  est!
in which he was held.   The H01I

not much of a deterrent especially if
he is from the other side. All that
he would have to do is just to go
south again then the defeated candidate has his work cut out to unseat
the party elected by these illegal
voters. There are large numbers of
unnaturalized British subjects in the
Prairie Provinces who are not entitled to vote at the forthcoming election and Conservatives will have
their hands full to guard against these
votes being cast.
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—1 had written you a letter relative to "motor horns," but
having since read a recent issue an
article by "Lounger," upon that subject, I fear it would only be a work
of supererrogation for you to print
the letter referred to. However,
there is one idea conspicuously absent from his (L's) statement, whicii
I may allude to. I think ,for the
protection of life and limb, it should
be made compulsory to use only one
kind of motor horn, say the usual one
of a "cow lowing," with whicii pedestrians ancl others have become familiarized. Such innovations and imitations of a stuck pig, etc., are unfamiliar and dangerous to the public,
who do not connect them with the
dread motor, coming from the rear
or round a sharp corner, in excess
of speed limit.
Perhaps it would not be inappropriate to conclude my remarks with
some reference to the Motor Act
framed by the Attorney-General, a
most useful Act, if properly administered. But all its power and energy
seem to have been exhausted before  the   Legislative  Assembly.
Every day discloses breaches of
administration, as to speed, registered numbers, passing of flighty
horses, etc. In fact it would appear
thc Act is fast becoming obsolete.
The original idea of the Attorney-
General in his speech before the Legislative Assembly, was, that the registered number (four inches in length)
should appear, as fixtures in front,
as well as in rear of every motor
car; in order to facilitate the detection of criminals, etc., who were trying to escape, when dust made it
impossible to decipher the numbers
on rear of their machines. Instead
of which small numbers on the
lamps (moveable, and useless in the
day time) have been substituted.
This, it is plain to be seen, defeats
the original object of large fixed
numbers in front.
Since the passing of the Act I have
seen four motors so numbered; in
compliance, 1 presume, with the Attorney-General's introductory speech,
containing a promise to that effect.
T. S. K.
July 26th, 1911.
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—With your kind permission I would very much like to add
a word of support to the lament for
street refuse receptacles which was
uttered in your issue of July 22 by
"Lounger." 1 am to a certain extent
a lover of peace, order aud cleanliness. Nothing gives me the "nerves"
more than to sec heaps of used literature, the remains of a fruit-eater's repast, discarded cigars and thousands
of other odds and ends whicii were
never owned by anyone, lying about
in a wanton manner on sueh beautiful and important streets as Douglas
and Government. This city has a reputation to build up and a good name
to keep good. I do not mean to say
that entire order was always the
menu of the past, or that her streets
were by any means perfect before
the recent earthquake, but that there
was that sure amount of beauty and
refinement, law and order, which bid
fair to develop in the right direction.
Let us sec to it that during our great
attention to the externals—parks,
boulevards, etc.—we forget'not the
intervals—the heart of the city and
its cleanliness. As suggested by
"Lounger," a few- receptacles fixed
here and there along the main streets
might  be   suspended   from  the  poles
—as in many eastern cities—that sa
gracefully adorn the sidewalks. With
your kind indulgence 1 would also
like to touch upon another—and in
my opinion—far more dangerous nuisance than the one before mentioned,
and that is Victoria's horrible and
death-giving spittoon. It is situated
at the corner of Yates and Government streets, and is far more dangerous than either "reciprocity" or
"the Chinese invasion." For a woman to trail her dress or attire-
through the pools of spittle whicii
lie about every evening in this most
frequented part of the city is too
horrible to contemplate. To a person who has the least amount of love
for hygenic laws such a cesspool is
far more dangerous and terrifying to
pass through than the ordeal of tackling an armed burglar at the hour
of midnight. 1 am sure if the offenders in tllis particular nuisance
would only give the matter a few
moments' serious consideration they
could not possibly longer endanger
a beauty and health-loving public.
Yours sincerely,
Koksilah, B.C.,
July   28th,   1911.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—May I call your attention to
a very meritorious work of which I
have just received the last issue? I
refer to the Canadian Annual Review. This work is, as far as I
know, the only current history of Canada published and my own experience is that public writers and speakers cannot do without it, and yet it
does not seem to be as generally
known as it should be to repay the
enormous labour involved in its production. If you want to test its value
look up the Canadian Naval Question
as dealt with in the 1909 issue. I
venture to say that a more exhaustive account of the whole matter
from all sides, with the views held
thereon by the leading Canadian journals could nowhere be found. I write
because, though the Review grows
better every year, I am always in
deadly fear lest the publishers should
grow tired of their game and stop
publication. You could not get the
work done elsewhere for ten times
its cost and what public men would
do without so convenient book of
reference I cannot guess.
T don't suppose that any editor or
politician in Canada has time to read
and compare all the papers of Canada, as Mr. Costell Hopkins seems
to do, or patience enough to boil all
the information down into indexed
readable form. It will certainly
make the work of the future historian
an easy one.
Yours truly,
Some little time ago the James Bay
Epworth League were very much interested by the presence and address
of Dr. Sunder Sing, who gave a very
line talk on the Hindoo question,
whieh is presenting itself before us
as citizens aud colonials very forcibly every day. The doctor explained
how the Hindoo in Canada is al present being dealt with and how we
are violating the Laws of Nature by
keeping out the wives and children
of the men now here, not at all considering the resentment we are showing to our own Colonial Brethren,
There was a petition to the effect of
obtaining "the right of admission for
the wives and families of those now
here in Canada" read and it was
unanimously accepted and signed.
These men are for the most part
good, respectable and law-abiding
people and are now engaged in the
hardest of work. Dr. Sing has in
hand a greater task than one can
realize and in this work he should
have the hearty co-operation of all
loyal Sons of the Empire.
Quite   a   good   deal   of   discussion
arose out of the address and the ques
tions  asked  were  readily  and  effectively answered by Dr. Sing.

More than one business girl who has
learned economy at the hands of careless laundress does such waists up
for herself, washing them in a suds
made with white soap, rinsing them
and ironing them under a cloth when
they are almost dry. An iron should
never be put directly onto silk. If
it is hot enough to do its work it will
yellow the silk too easily for the
amateur ironer to manage. And in
any case the iron leaves a shine that
shows it has been there.

Many of the new hats have huge
bows of ribbon crossing the top of
the crown from side to side for their
sole trimming, with perhaps a velvet
or coloured-straw edge finish. Others
show immense looped or rosette bows
at the side or swathings of ribbon.
Broad silks are pressed into service
and with pinked edges, in cock's
comb colour, are gathered into great
waving "chantecler" rosettes on black
chip hats.
Wings and quills are more pointed
than for some time past, thus giving
additional chic to the hats they decorate. Blue, green, cerise, tan, black
and white are the popular colourings.
Roses, crushed, in soft colourings of
old rose, mauve, tan, etc., are used
for whole crowns to toques either
with or without the introduction of
aigrettes, sharp ends of ribbon, quills
or upstanding sprays of fine flowers.
Lilacs and similar fine-petal blossoms are spread daintily over crowns

small and large hats, now selling for
Southern resorts, and may become a
fad for the summer—they are certainly pretty enough, thus associated,
to create a vogue for themselves.
Rosettes of ribbon, flowers, fruits,
feathers, tulle and net seem to be in
great favour for holding back the
brims of hats that have upturning
lines. Rings of cherries on such rosettes are very attractive.

It is the hour of freak millinery,
but it is one that is on the wane.
Larger hats are displacing the hideous
extinguisher and other small turban
or toque shapes. It is only in the
latter that designers'are showing evidences of degenerate tastes. . Large
hats may be absurd from their^size,
but even then they are more or less
picturesque—something that cannot
be said of the extinguishers. In
Paris the large hat is de rigueur
and abundantly trimmed with plumes,
also generous in number and size, and
the   same  trend   here   is  observable.
One can only generalize in mention-
r i        ,* ■
ing millinery, for tlie variety in both
small and large hats is innumerable.
There is no one shape in small hats
that leads—they are all worn. The
conservative dresser can find a modest, becoming style; the extremist is
able to select a smaller shape and so
trim it that the crowd on the "Great
White Way"—to a man, or a wpman
—will turn to gasp in astonishment,
or smile in derision. The hat as large
as an umbrella creates a species of
consternation, but not the feeling that
one is going through a nightmare, as
is often the case in observing an extinguisher turban.

an exact parallel for the position in which
Sir Wilfrid would place Canada with respect to Imperial Naval Defence. He refused a direct contribution; he carried
with the utmost difficulty, a niggardly policy and then when he went to the Imperial
Conference he insisted that his "three men
and a boat" should be at liberty to light or
not as they saw fit. This is how the matter looks to Englishmen, and this is how it
looks also to a great many thinking Canadians, who are not willing that their loyalty
to the .Motherland should be measured by the
racial susceptibilities of a Erench-Canadian
Premier and a French-Canadian Province.
SCHWENGERS' SUCCESS—Congratulations to B. P. Schwengers on having won the Canadian Tennis Championship the first time of asking. Those

probably only a few thought that he could
do so in straight setts. Eastern exchanges

play was a revelation, and towards
the end of the week's play at Ottawa all
the local papers were loud in their praises
of the British Columbia crack. Schwengers
is playing in Montreal this week and at
Niagara-on-the-Lake next week. So far he
is carrying everything before him. After
the Niagara tournament he has a few days
rest and then goes to Newport to take part
in the American championships. The Week
is perhaps alone in its opinion that he will
win out. In any event his victorious tour
has given British Columbia a celebrity in
the world of sport second only to that
which she has attained through the redoubtable performances of the Westminster
Lacrosse team.
that there is no city on this continent where
the sidewalks and streets are so monopolised by contractors and tradesmen to the
inconvenience and danger of the public.
The greatest offender on being remonstrated with by the police authorities took
refuge in the fact that his elevator was not
in running order, and therefore he felt justified in converting the public sidewalks into
a warehouse. As this firm has half-a-dozen
vacant lots immediately opposite their store
such a pretext should not be allowed to
prevail for one moment. The abuse of
their privileges by building contractors is
rapidly becoming a menace and if, as The
Week is given to understand, the existing
by-laws, are utterly powerless to cope with
the situation the City Solicitor cannot too

A GOOD LESSON—Probably the last
has been heard of the misguided
Socialists who came to Victoria to
stir up trouble. There is nothing so effective in allaying disorder as the calm, deliberate administration of British law. The
very apposite and sagacious words of Police
Magistrate Jay in sentencing the offending
Socialists acted as a much more effectual
douche than the water-hose which is said
to have been applied in an American city,
ancl herein is well illustrated the essential
difference between British and American
methods. It is the certainty that on the
Canadian side of the Line the wrong-doer
will be "nabbed": that constitutes the best
antidote to law-breaking. It is not a little
singular that at the very moment when Mr.
Jay was making it clear to the contumacious
Socialists in Victoria that British law
would be enforced, the members of the
Washington State Sheriffs' Association
were deploring the lax administration of the
law south of the Line. The Sheriff of
King's County, Washington, said he wished
that the Canadian laws were in force in the
United States so that police officers could
It is perhaps natural that some of the
Liberal papers should be restive under
the merciless findings of Mr. Justice Murphy's Report dealing with the recent investigation into the subject of Chinese immigration into British Columbia. Their
restiveness arises from the fact that Mr.
T. R. E. Mclnnes, a more or less prominent
member of the Liberal party, and Mr. Gordon Grant, an undoubtedly less prominent
member of the same, have been found guilty
of "intriguing for personal gain." All that
The Week has to say on the subject is that
Mr. Justice Murphy's Report was an exceptionally able and fearless one, and that
no better wish could be expressed than that
all future investigations into public affairs
which it may be necessary to hold may be
as ably and conscientiously conducted.

than when it said in Wednesday's

Reciprocity is to the pocket." In choosing
this battle-ground the Liberals have shown
that Reciprocity extends to ideas as well as
to merchantable goods, for it is the essence
of the American worship of the dollar
which would make commercial considerations the arbiter of the Reciprocity Agreement. Business considerations are all very
well in their way and dollars are not to be
