MIE B. C. NAVY LEAGUE—The
newly formed B. C. Navy League
has not been long in getting to work.
Ifederation was effected at a meeting
on Tuesday, July 30th, and on Wed-
y, August 7th, a delegation from the
tie had a meeting with Sir Richard
ride to lay before him the two Reso-
[s with which they had been entrusted,
irst: "That the Provincial Govern-
be requested to make seamanship a
|of the technical system of education
Province."   The second: "That the
Iincial  Government be  requested  to
der   the   advisability   of   utilizing
Egeria' in the proposed scheme of
jical education referred to in the pre-
motion."   The delegation consisted
President of the League, Mr. Clive
Ips Wolley; the Bishop of Columbia;
] T. Julian; Mr. G. A.*Kirk, and Mr.
akemore, the Secretary.   The argu-
II urged by the deputation were that
nship is at least as important a branch
inical training, especially in a Mari-
Province, as some of the other
ies which are already included in the
curriculum; that experience shows
very large percentage of all young
Irained in the mercantile marine be-
Naval Reserve men; that this would
ance the easiest and the most expedi-
lanner of starting a naval movement
Inada;, that if Canada is to have a
while she may at first be compelled
n it from the Mother Country, the
te aim of any statesmanlike policy
be to develop seamanship among our
Jieople. On the second Resolution it
>ointed out by Mr. Julian of Van-
who has rendered invaluable ser-
connection with the "Egeria," that
Iessel could at small cost be equipped
raining ship for a hundred boys, but
t is impossible to induce parents to
their boys to take the technical train-
lless arrangements can be made with
(overnment to give them the ordinary
1 education. If the School Board
and the Government grant were given
ich boy trained on the "Egeria" a
:r staff could be maintained, the same
a public school. Mr. Julian estimated
the cost of this would not exceed
00 per annum, and that in view of the
ate drafting of many of the boys into
Javy the Dominion Government might
duced to co-operate. Sir Richard Mc-
spoke favourably of the project and
ised to consider the matter with a view
scussing it later with the Hon. Mr.
n, Minister of Marine and Fisheries,
g his impending visit to the Coast,
jpinion of The Week is that a "prima
' case has been made out by the Navy
ie, and as tiie sentiment of the Pro-
is so pronouncedly in favour of
Idling practical in this direction, there
d be no difficulty in complying with
vislies of the League and making a
start with such material as is now
Ible. On the broad question of includ-
amanship in the curriculum there can
t one opinion: it would be a move in
ght direction.
I AY LABOUR —As the summer
wanes and civic work is necessarily
reduced, the subject of day labour
s contract labour crops up like a hardy
il. With more than 1,500 men already
irged the question cannot fail shortly
:ome a grave one. It is idle to gird
.vernments or Corporations, or even
actors, and ask whose fault is it that
men are here. It would be just as
ile to debate who was to blame for an
ing army having landed on the shores,
ask of the moment is to get rid of an
nt which is not wanted, and to con-
what work remains for those who
[the greatest claim to it.  The man who
owns property is a natural foe of day
labour because he claims with truth that the
work costs more under that system. That
is not the fault of the system but of its
administration. With honest supervision
day labour is as economic as contract
labour, but the difficulty is that on the one
hand the contractor manages to "sweat" his
men more, and on the other hand many
foremen do not press for as much work as
they are entitled to get. There is no doubt
that the city made a great mistake when it
allowed the Canadian Mineral Rubber
Company to come in without some practical
restrictions governing the importation of
alien labour. Such restrictions as were
supposed to exist have been proved to be
a dead letter. The relaxing of the Immigration Act, first of all by the Laurier
Government, and later by the present
Dominion Government was another mistake
whicii should not have been permitted, and
which should have been remedied as soon
as its abuse was discovered. It is the duty
of the Mayor and Council to face the situation. There are today more than one
thousand men in this city of alien birth, for
whom there will be no legitimate occupation
during the coming winter. There are many
more than a thousand men of our own race
who will be idle unless employment is so
systematized that every available job is
given to them. This is the problem, and
The Week, knowing that its attitude is supported by public opinion, urges the Mayor
and Council to take the matter up at once
and settle the policy to be pursued; but it
will require to be far-reaching and to be
administered with determination and vigilance.
A SPLENDID IDEA —Readers of
The Week will remember that when
the eminent English actor, Mr.
Forbes Robertson, was in Victoria he addressed the Canadian Club, and in the
course of that address said that the day
was not far distant when. English theatrical companies would cross the Atlantic and
starting from Halifax would play _\\
through the Dominion until they reached
Victoria. His prediction was cheered to
the echo, but no one, least of all the
speaker, imagined that it might be verified
for years to come. It is therefore with unfeigned delight that The Week read the
report of the meeting of the Directors of
the Victoria Opera House Company this
week and the statement of Mr. Simon
Leiser that overtures have already been
made to the Company for realizing such a
scheme. No wonder that the Board received it with gratification, and no wonder
that the members agreed to keep the door
wide open for such an arrangement if it
should be found possible. Of course there
are English Companies and English Companies, and bad Companies are none the
better because they happen to be English
instead of American. We may just as well
jog along as we have done, unless we can
get something better, although it is hardly
conceivable that we could get anything
worse. This criticism does not apply to the
half-dozen or so first-class Companies
which have visited Victoria during the
theatrical season, but it does apply with perfect truth and justice to the average. The
Week has never ceased to use whatever influence it has in condemning the vulgar,
uncultured, low-grade aggregations which
have visited Victoria of late years and
called themselves actors. It is true they
have obtained a measure of popular support, but only because in these strenuous
times people must have amusement. There
can, however, be no question of the degrading tendency of the majority of the American Companies that have visited Victoria.
They have no acquaintance with art or elocution and usually lack even the preliminary requisite of education.   If the Direc
tors of the Victoria Opera House Company can deliver Victoria from this American bondage it will have accomplished a
greater work than the building of a new
theatre.
MR. T. H. MAWSON—A member
of the Council took The Week to
task for its editorial in last issue
commenting on the treatment which Mr. T.
H. Mawson was receiving from the City.
This Alderman took the ground that the
whole trouble had been occasioned by Alderman Cuthbert exceeding his authority as
Chairman of the Parks Committee. Without wishing to enter into any lengthy discussion on the subject, The Week ventures
to point out that the resolution to engage
Mr. Mawson was endorsed by every member of the Parks Committee, including Alderman Dilworth, who is now so active in
his opposition. A contract was drawn up
by the City Solicitor on the lines of that
resolution and sent to Mr. Mawson by the
City Clerk. Surely it was a little late in
the day for the City to change its attitude
after matters had reached this stage, and
whether or not the Chairman of the Parks
Committee exceeded his authority, a matter
upon which The Week is not called to express an opinion, it would appear to all
fair-minded people that the following resolution justified the engagement of Mr.
Mawson and will require a great deal of
explaining away:
"Extract from Report of the Parks Committee, dated May 13th, 1912: Paragraph 3—
That Mr. T. H. Mawson be engaged to prepare a plan with specifications for the permanent improvement of the following parks
and open spaces, viz.: Mt. Douglas Park,
Beacon Hill Park, North Park, Gorge Park,
the Gore in Pandora Street, the Gore in
Blanchard Street, and the triangular place between Government Street and Douglas Street,
known as the Fountain, for the sum of $5,000,
upon the basis of his letter dated April 22nd,
1912, addressed to the Chairman of the Committee, and that a contract be prepared by the
City Solicitor, and the Mayor authorized to
sign and affix the Seal of the Corporation to
the same. Signed by Aldermen Herbert Cuthbert, R. Humber, A. Stewart, John Dilworth,
G. A. Okell."
PANAMA CANAL —The Panama
Canal is to be completed in 1914.
Under the Hay-Paunceforte Treaty
which abrogated the Bulwer-Clayton it was
to be free to the ships of all nations on
equal terms. The only preference given to
the United States Government was that of
being permitted to protect it. The Hay-
Paunceforte Treaty was a judicial agreement made between two presumably civilized countries. In all civilized countries the
highest ethical standard is one of honour.
The Senate of the United States Government has just passed a measure differentiating in the matter of tolls to the advantage
of the United States as against all other
nations. This is in direct and open violation of the Hay-Paunceforte Treaty as well
as of the recognized code of honour prevailing in civilized nations. In a few weeks
"The Flying Legion" of San Francisco is to
visit Victoria in the interests of the Panama
Exposition. The success of that Exposition will depend to no inconsiderable extent
upon the interest whicii these American millionaires are able to arouse in the project,
not only in the United States, but in Canada.
It would seem to be an opportune time for
Canadians to consider the treatment meted
out to John Bull by a nation which, not for
the first time, has repudiated its treaty
obligations. Many leading American citizens, to their honour be it said, have repudiated the action of the Senate in this
matter. It would be interesting to know if
the members of "The Flying Legion" are to
be counted among the number.
CRICKET TOURNAMENT — On
Monday week the most extensive
cricket tournament ever held in
Victoria commences. It has been organized
at the expenditure of much thought and
care, and every effort has been made to
bring as many visiting teams to the city as
possible. The pains-taking Secretary, Mr.
A. Wheeler, jr., has met with excellent success, and in addition to the half-dozen local
teams which will compete, there will be
teams from Vancouver, Portland and
Cowichan. Every lover of cricket has
watched with delight the growing popularity
of the game during the last few years, and
the present season has marked an increase
in the number of playing teams which is
gratifying to a degree. It is only three or
four years since, so far as local cricket was
concerned, it was a case of Victoria first
and all the rest nowhere. Today it is doubtful if among the votaries of the game who
make a few small bets on the result, Victoria is even the favourite. Indeed, in the
opinion of the best judges it is a toss-up
between four Clubs, Victoria, Vancouver,
Burrard and Cowichan, with at least one
other possibility. This will make the tournament interesting and leave the issue in
doubt until the last game is played. The
Committee has followed the very wise
course of dividing the teams into two
classes, so as to keep the top-notchers
apart. Purchasers of a one-dollar ticket
will be able to see twenty-six games and
The Week confidently appeals not only to
the usual followers of the game but to the
general public to come out and support the
"prince of games" and by their support
render easier the task of the Committee.
REGISTRATION —The Week has
been asked to call attention to the
fact that there is apparently a breach
of the Provincial Law regarding registration which is occasioning considerable inconvenience. The law requires all companies doing business in British Columbia
to register,' and to have an office and an
agent in the Province. Outside merchants
comply with this law, although their local
agents have made a good deal of fuss about
it, but outside contractors, and many of the
biggest contractors in British Columbia are
outside contractors, have tlieir offices in
Seattle or Spokane or other American
cities, and there are many instances in
which workmen and others wishing to do
business with the Company have had to
journey across the line. Surely this is a
violation of the law, and it is not merely
an inconvenience to the person directly
affected, but is opposed to the public interest
and should be remedied.
A FAIR WARNING—Several months
ago The Week received a visit from
two ladies who were collecting
funds for the Industrial Peace Association.
Their visit led to a lengthy discussion about
the movement and they were furnished
with a number of important facts of
which they were previously in ignorance.
They stated that they were collecting on
commission; that all the money they secured was forwarded to Mr. P. H. Scullin,
who presumably used it for furthering the
interests of the Association, although of its
actual disposition they knew nothing.
They stated that they had been induced to
take up the work by a Vancouver clergyman. They left, expressing a determination not to continue, but The Week hears
that they are still collecting in this city.
They are ill-advised, though not so ill-
advised as the people who part with their
money.
L THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1912
There are two classes bf nuisances
which it has been my duty to chase
for a good many years—noises and
smells. The former I have chased
with fair success; the latter with partial success. I have got rid of the
soap-sud smell in the Inner Harbour;
I still want to get rid of the mud
smell which is so much in evidence
at low tide. I think that everyone
will admit that I had a hand in chasing tie bad smells out of our back
alleys, which are now being kept
cleaner than at any time ir. their
history, thanks to the energy to Mr.
Lancaster and his assistants. There
is, however, a smell of another kind
about which little can be said except
that it permeates all latrines that are
not constantly and carefully looked
after. Needless to say, this is one of
the most objectionable nuisances and
yet with care it can be entirely avoided, but not with the slap-dash hurry
and whisk with which the average
Chink treats it once a day. I am
sorry to say that in some of the
largest stores in the town this important piece of work is badly done
with the most deplorable results. I
am not at all sure that in a good
sized city it would not pay to have
an inspector of latrines; I am quite
sure that there are some offenders
who will never be kept up to the
mark until it is done. The only reason that I am bringing such an unsavoury subject up this week is that a
lady has complained bitterly of the
condition of affairs in this re .pect at
the E. & N. Railway station and has
voiced her complaint in a letter to
The Week. The fact of the matter
is that most of the janitor work in
this city is characterized by slackness,, and the owners and agents of
stores and offices should exercise a
little more vigilance in keeping these
men up to their duty.
* *   *
1 am more than a little pleased that
my protest against the location o; a
garbage dump at the back of the Empress Hotel, supported by the very
vehement, not to say angry, opposition of all the property owners in
that district, has had an immediate
and decisive effect on the City Council. Their rash decision has been reconsidered and they have been induced to acquiesce in an arrangement by which the refuse will be
dumped directly into the garbage
scow at a point near the Chemical
Works, where the worst that can happen will be a conflict of smells.
* *   *
I have been not a little amused
this week by watching the operations of the Westrumite Company on
Vancouver Street. My readers will
remember that the City held back a
substantial sum as a guarantee of efficient workmanship and it refused to
pay this sum over until certain necessary repairs had been made. A
few weeks ago half-a-dozen men, several barrels of tar and a few loads
of crushed granite arrived on Vancouver Street. A foreman with a
very foreign accent made sundry
chalk marks, presumably indicating
the defective spots; a few very small
pieces were cut out and the original
pavement was replaced by an inferior
mixture of tar and crushed stone,
about the sloppiest substitute for
pavement that I ever saw. Finally,
these patches were dusted over; the
foreman and his half-dozen workmen
struck an attitude of admiration and
the City Engineer was sent for to
pronounce a benediction and to 0. K.
the account. But the Westrumite
Company had struck a snag. We
have a new City Engineer who has a
very definite idea of the obligations
of contractors. What passed between him and the Company I do
not know, but I do know that for a
fortnight thereafter workmen wcre
chopping out very large blocks of
pavement which made the original repairs  look  like  pebbles  in  a  desert.
In one case the piece chopped out
•as equal lo about Fo per cent, of the
whole street and in many others ran
a third to half way across the street.
These patches were in turn refilled,
rolled and dusted, and the end is not
yet. It will furnish an instructive object lesson to any ratepayer to take
a walk along Vancouver Street and
see what rotten work this Company
must have performed when within
one year or less so large a percentage
of the surface has required taking up.
.At the same time, I hope the City
Engineer will be as particular about
the quality of the pavement now being used in the repairs as he has been
in the extent of repair demanded.
Personally, I think it bears about the
same resemblance to the specified
Westrumite pavement as chalk does
to cheese.        *   *   *
Having tried over the telephone
several times without success to attract the attention of the License
Inspector, I now beg through the
columns of The Week to acquaint
him with the following facts. On
Monday last a gentleman well known
in this city was invited by a friend
into the bar of the Westholme Hotel
for a drink. Not having had a drink
that day before, he accepted the invitation; they each ordered Scotch
whiskey, and drank it. In a few moments the gentleman referred to felt
sick; he went into the street and felt
so badly that he began to walk up
town. The symptoms got worse; he
felt feeble and faint, and before he
had gone two blocks he was positively sick. He came into The Week
office and appeared to be in a serious
condition. On advice he went to the
nearest drug store and secured a
powerful emetic which was effective
and which relieved him sufficiently to
enable him to go home. He did not
thoroughly recover for two days; indeed, all day on Tuesday he felt exceedingly unwell. Now I venture to
think that he was poisoned, probably
by rot-gut whiskey, but certainly by
wha! was given him to drink in the
WeMholme bar, because there was
noth ng else to account for it. I venture to suggest that it is somebody's
duty, either that of the License Inspector or the Health Officer, to test
the quality of the whiskey sold at the
bars of this city. At any rate, it
ought to be possible to prevent such
stuff being sold unless the bottles
bear the label which is usual in such
cases "POISON."
*   *   *
I am afraid that Vancouver newspaper editors are not the only men
who are deficient in a sense of
humour. They copied an article from
"The Week" on the "Utilization of
Waste Spaces" and took it as seriously as gospel truth, but I hardly expected to find the same inability to
appreciate a hint on the part of the
wide-awake and energetic officials of
the Public Works Department. Last
Sunday 1 noticed a crowd of loafers
on the grassy sward in front of the
Parliament Buildings. This may be
the right of every cit* en in a free,
democratic country, though I doubt
it; but I am quite sure that the right
does not extend to the littering of
the lawns with newspapers and broken
food. And yet this was the chief occupation of last Sunday's loafers.
They seemed to have taken all too
literally Bohemian's suggestion that
there were plenty of gardeners to
clear up the litter. Be that as it may,
I will now abandon the ironical mood
and put what was meant into plain
English for the benefit of the Department. I would say, "Citizens, protect
your property; and if you allow
loafers on your lawns, at least compel them to respect appearances."

Good Advertising— What It Is
EVERY HUMAN ACT and word is goodv
or bad advertising. If one is courteous,
sincere and sane he stamps himself as a man
of worth. The people he comes in contact
with remark his strength or weakness and
build for him a reputation in keeping with his
reliability and intelligence. He has advertised
himself for what he really is.
Realizing the truth of this we wish to advertise ourselves for success; to create a permanent
patronage and to avoid incorporating anything
in our attitude towards our customers that
would sacrifice the future to a petty present
profit.    We would make the name
"GORDON'S"
a synonym for all that could  be desired in
the way of service and sincerity.

The  Road to  Yesterday
e  Allen   Players  have  been  aping this week in one of the most
|htful plays that has graced the
:1s   of  the  Victoria  Theatre   for
time.   "The Road to Yesterday"
with  the serious theme  of re-
Ination with an insouciance which
convincing as  it  is  charming.
kdy   is   rampant,   but* a   refined
Idy   which   in   no   way   detracts
lthe main argument.   As the in-
|ius girl of sixteen, who between

pspecially both looked and acted

the vaudeville show at the Em-

Irs of the highest merit, there is

(nt week as one of his "big hits."

lance at the Crystal on that night
Jnigh a record one. Jimmie Rego

laps the most notable was entitled

shown   was   wonderful,   and   it
|t ever remain a marvel to the lay-
how the man with the camera
manages to dodge round so as to
snap so many "critical moments."
Romano's Theatre
"Under Two Flags" a film dramatization of Ouida's famous novel was
a feature at the beginning of the
week at Romano's. It is true that
the costumes in the earlier scenes
were somewhat "outre" but the main
theme of the story was well portrayed. Later in the week the history
of the Maccabees was shown in picture and was well received by
crowded houses.
The Allen Players
For playgoers next week the Allen
Players are to stage a new play that
has not before been brought to Victoria. The play is "The Transgressor," a dramatization of Owen
Kildare's book, "My Mamie Rose."
It will be found to be a play that will
interest a multitude of people for it
has a plot that holds the attention
throughout. "The Transgressor" is
practically a reverse of "Salvation
Nell" inasmuch as the regenerated
character is a man and not a woman.
There is, however, a woman in the
piece, she being one whose friendship
with the man is for his good, whose
influence opens for him a new life of
purpose and endeavor. There are his
companions Nellie, Skinny, Ames and
Ollie, who try to hold the man back
to their ways, and the batter between
the woman and the man's friends, and
the man's battle against his friends
are effective pieces of stage work.
Musical Comedy
The muchly anticipated musical
comedy opening of the season will
occupy Friday, August 16, at the Victoria Theatre. Harry Askin's big organization in "Louisiana Lou," comes
here virtually direct from the Chicago
La Salle, where it has just concluded
an extraordinary run of 356 performances. Manager J. J. Gottlob, of the
Columbia Theatre, San Francisco,
saw the production there on his latest
Eastern trip and arranged with Mr.
Asking that it be sent direct to the
Columbia for its just concluded engagement in that city. So it came
clear across the continent with the
original cast and its four dozen
beauty chorus intact.
Princess Theatre
"Thorns and Orange Blossoms"
pleased a large audience all last week
and gave a chance to the different
players, which many previous plays
have not, The play itself was slightly melo-dramatic, but at all times intensely interesting, and the illuminated street scene and also the transformation on the last curtain were
very cleverly executed. Messrs. Mildred Page as Lady Violet Ryvers, did
some good emotional acting. Mr.
Richard Lonsdale was very pleasing
as Lord Randolph and the comedy
was especially well adapted to the
ability of Mr. Howard Foster and
Miss Hallie Mitchell, while Mr. Byron
Aldenn as Sir Hubert Hay, gave a
clever delineation of character acting.
"Sunday," The Girl from the West,
Ethel Barrymore's piece, will be
staged the coming week. The opening act is in a Nevada mining camp,
where a dying miner entrusts his
child to the care of three weigh men,
his only friends in the camp. They
bring her up to the best of their ability, and when she is sixteen send her
to New York to be educated in a
convent.    During  her  stay  in   New
York she is discovered by an aunt,
who, on the strength of her relationship, takes her to England. Miss
Mildred Page will play the part of
Sunday, Miss Barrymore's role, and
every member of the company* will
have an acting part. The characters,
especially in the camp scene, are well
defined types to which care and
thought will be given. "Sunday,"
The Girl from the West, all week;
Wednesday and Saturday matinee.

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
Peace, Perfect
Peace
By Bohemian
I have been asked to take up the
cudgels on behalf of my colleague
"Hornet," who with his usual impulsiveness had the temerity to rush
in where angels fear to tread.
A week or two ago he wrote a few
caustic comments at the expense of
the clergyman who recently delivered
a ceremonial address in the interests
of the Orange Order.
I am quite sure that "Hornet" had
110 intention to hurt anyone's feelings,
or to make any serious contributions
to a religious controversy. It is
about the last thing he would ever
dream of doing. I rather think that
what he had to say was due to the
fact that while the reverend gentleman might easily have fortified his
discourse with references to modern
history, he confined himself exclusively to ancient history. That was
why "Hornet" spoke of "rusty weapons."
Now all good little Protestant children know that away back in the
Dark Ages priests and other high
dignitaries of the Roman Catholic
Church did many things which ■iffend-
ed the sense of mankind and brought
their Church into disrepute.
It cannot for a moment be contended in the light of authentic historical
records that the lives of all priests,
to say nothing of popes, wtr. the
lives of saints; nor can it be successfully urged that the Roman Catholic
Church erred on the side of consid-
erateness and mercy when dealing
with recalcitrants. It is, however,
gratifying to realize that now-a-days
there is not one intelligent Roman
Catholic who would defend the delin*^
quencies of the ancient priesthood, or
condone the atrocities perpetrated by
the Inquisition in the name of religion.
Now the view is held by some Protestants and quite a number of
Orangemen that the spirit of the
Roman Catholic Church is the same
in all ages, and that but for the
strong arm of the civil law, backed
up by an enlightened public opinion,
the Roman Catholic Church stands
ready to resort to the same disciplinary measures as she exercised in days
gone by, in other words, that if she
had her way she would re-light the
fires at Smithfield for all ages.
This seems to me a matter of pure
speculation which may or may not
he true; no one can possibly know.
At any rate, there are much more
imminent dangers threatening the
peace of the world.
One may readily concede that having learned the lessons of history
aright, and having realized the incontestable fact that the policy of the
Roman Catholic Church remains in
nlany respects the same in all ages, it
is the duty of every Protestant to be
vigilant in order to resist the invasion
of his privileges by ecclesiastical orders of every kind, and especially
those of the Roman Catholic Church.
I take it that this is the "raison
d'etre" of the existence of the Orange
Order.
Without having the slightest intention to start a religious controversy,
I have no objection to publishing the
following extracts from documents
whicii cannot be regarded as
"ancient," and which serve to show
that the reverend gentleman who undertook to espouse the Orange cause
from his pulpit, might easily have
made his references more up to date.
I publish   these    extracts    without
comment, and simply to satisfy my
readers that in this, as in all matters
The Week is absolutely impartial and
prepared to voice both sides of any
public question of importance.
Extracts from papal encyclical of
Pope Pius IX, Decesmer 8th, 1864:
ist. "The Church has the right to
exercise its authority without having
any limit set to it by the civil power."
2nd. "The Pope and the priests
ought to have dominion over temporal affairs."
3rd. "The Church and her ecclesiastics have a right to immunity from
civil law."
Extract from latest decree of the
present Pope;
ist. "The Clergy should be tried
for civil and criminal offences only
in ecclesiastical courts."
2nd. "In case of conflict between
the ecclesiastical and civil powers, the
ecclesiastical power ought to prevail."
3rd. "The civil power is inferior
and subordinate to the ecclesiastical
power, and in litigated questions of
jurisdiction should yield to it."
Catholic "Orphans Friend," published in Victoria, personal organ of
Bishop McDonald, of August .1909,
warns Roman Catholic parents not to
expose their children to perdition by
sending them to the public schools of
this city.
Correspondence
FOR THE MOTHERLAND
Victoria, August 7, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—No one who has read
your leading articles during the past
twelve months can have failed to note
with some concern the serious view
taken therein as to our foreign relations and the possibility of conflict
with an European power.
Such words of warning as you have
uttered are only too well confirmed
by the Home papers, especially during the last few weeks and surely
with all this before us it is time, high
time, that we should be up and doing,
doing our duty as British Columbians
and British citizens.
Sir, 1 appeal to all who love their
Motherland to consider seriously the
situation as it is at present and to ask
themselves whether they are one and
all shewing that spirit of self-sacrifice
and patriotism which alone will render them worthy to hold this glorious
country of our birth or adoption.
You, sir, have put in far more telling phrases than I can the peculiar
dangers which now beset us, but I
would like to briefly indicate some
at least of the steps that we should
take to place our country in a state
of defence.
Our population is ranging six hundred thousand, neglecting remote
communities, Indians and foreigners.
Out of this 120,000 are adult males
and of this number at least 25 per
cent, could be counted on as available for the fighting line, being
equivalent to twenty-eight infantry
battalions with details and supply.
We know how far our means of
defence fall below this number. In
Victoria we have the Fifth Regiment,
an admirable body as far as efficiency
is concerned, but few in numbers and
purely for defensive operations. We
are attempting, a few of us, to raise
an Infantry Regiment—where is it?
and should we stop there? One battalion of infantry is not enough for
Victoria and Vancouver Island. What
we need is a thoroughly good, comprehensive scheme which will enable
us to utilize the material at our command and prepare otirselves against
the day which is inevitably drawing
nearer. Such a scheme would probably give three infantry battalions,
two A. S. C. units and a couple of
mountain batteries for Vancouver
Island in addition to the present
forces, and on the mainland British
Columbia should put into the field at
least ten battalions of infantry, four
mountain battalions, one battalion of
Pioneer Guides (from the whole Province), a thoroughly efficient transport and A. S. C. service and two or
three    companies    of    Railway   Engineers.
With this or a better scheme of
defence in operation we should feel
that we are at least bearing our part
as "citizens of no mean Empire," and
by "keeping up our end" we shall set
free the hands of our kin at Ottawa
and London,
The timely visit of Colonel Hughes,
whose keenness and desire for efficiency and the performance of duty
is so well known, renders the present
a most opportune moment to discuss
the whole question. "Defence" not
"Defiance," should be our watchword;
at present we can do neither.
I am, sir, etc.,
IMPERIALIST.
HOME RULE
Victoria, August 7, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Wonderful changes have come over
the spirit of Ireland's Home Rule
dream in little more than a quarter
of a century. One of the "greatest"
prime ministers that ever addressed
the British House of Commons (he
of Jubilee Bill fame) charged Parnell, Redmond & Co. with wading
through blood to the dismemberment
of the Empire. The present Prime
Minister dines with one of the bloodstained patriots.—and (tell it not in
Gath) Tim Healy is hooted in Dublin!
The patriots "marked time" when
the above charge was brought
against them by Mr. Gladstone, and
sloothered him into attempting by a
trick to pass the Home Rule Bill;
but Ireland's truest friends were too
much for him. When the Jubilee Bill
hero made a second attempt to rush
his Home Rule Bill and failed the
bloody march began again, as they
had been only marking time.
It is so long since the demise of
Charles Stewart Parnell, the "uncrowned king," he can be written of
as an historic character. He treacherously wounded his best friends in
the most vulnerable spot, inflicting
mental torture worse than death. The
treatment he received from his
"friend" may have been meek and
scriptural but by Jove it was not
human, or Irish.
"JUBILEE."
Victoria, August Sth, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—The "Lounger" has done
much towards us being able to use
the sidewalks without having our
clothing torn and our shins barked
by moving freight (which would be
tolerated in no town, except Victoria). It could be moved over the
walks at a more convenient time than
the afternoon, when so many are
abroad shopping, etc.
I wonder if the "Lounger" would,
kindly, for the comfort and health of
the travelling public, go down to the
E. & N. station and see what it is
like. Only this week I had the tnis-
fortune to have a wait of half an hour
for a train, and really the smell was
sickening and disgusting, especially
in the ladies' waiting room. In future
I shall wait on the sidewalk.
Surely the white population have
some call on the C. P. R. for comfort
and cleanliness. A Chinaman flicks
his broom over the place, for which
it is neither better or worse.
A WHITE TRAVELLER.
BEAUTY
Mourn nevermore for Beauty.   Sigh no more
Above  the  tender  rose that it  must  pass.
Lament   no  more  that   flowery  loveliness
Seems hut the prey of Time.
Fear   not   for  this,
Since all these fragile things survive and live.
The   nightingale   still   through   the   hills   of
Thrace
Makes music to the moon, though  long ago
Their  temples  and  their, tombs  have  passed
away.
On crumbling walls and  ramparts,  once the
pride
Of unremembered empires, still return
Spring's asphodels as frail as flakes of snow.
Fear   not  for   such   as   these,   since  they,  in
truth.
Outlive the unguarded granite and its graves.
All beauty has its wortli.    It is enshrined
Tn armour stronger than cuirassing steel.
It bears a  majesty that makes  Death  meek.
And robs him of his sting.   We hate to bruise
The slender bird, or trample on the rose,
Or soil the snowy-winged anemone.
We ne'er would kill  one lightest  Doric note
That links us with the childhood of the world.
Ay, loath we are to rend the quiet wings
Of rainbow-coloured  moths.
When  fragile gifts
Arc touched with loveliness we treasure them.
The marble that in Milos once was made
A dream of tender beauty has not died
Through all the centuries ',t and lovely things
No succour need, and nothing good or bad
More obdurately battles through the dust
Of Time and  Death  than  earth's  frail  loveliness !
—Arthur Stringer, in The Canadian
Magazine.

Stamford Park
There are sub-divisions and subdivisions, but the best guarantee of a
good one is that it is being put on
the market by a reliable firm. Not
that Victoria has suffered in this respect, but it is a matter of common
knowledge that Prairie town-sites
Have, as a rule, proved "wild cats,"
and much good money, both from
East and West, has been sunk in
them. A firm with a reputation cannot afford to handle anything but a
genuine property, and if the infallible
test of a favourable report in Dun &
Bradstreet counts for anything, then
the firm of Moore & Johnson, which
is handling the Stamford Park subdivision occupies a very high position.
Apart from their local reputation
which needs no comment, and the
fact that they have conducted an
enormous amount of business to the
entire satisfaction of their patrons,
there is the usual bankers' reference,
which any investor may consult by
applying to the Royal Bank, Government  Street.
Since their advent into Victoria
Messrs. Moore & Johnston have
shown themselves to be both enterprising and ingenious. They ' were
the first to introduce pictorial maps
of sub-divisions into the city, and
their latest one of Stamford Park is
a beautiful work of art, depicting its
glens and glades, with the magnificent
far-distant prospects of this attractive
property with photographic accuracy
and in their natural colours.   Readers
of The Week may remember that
firm of Moore & Johnston took
first prize on  last  Victoria  Day
an original and skilful window desj
which was most effective for its pi
pose.   Since  then  Messrs.  Moore I
Johnston   have   had   many   copyis
and pictorial maps and model wind|
designs are now a "sine-qua-non"
any first-class real estate firm.
Full   particulars   of   the   Stamff
Park sub-division will be found in
advertising   columns   of   The Wej
and  Messrs.  Moore & Johnston
their large staff, are at the entire
posal of their clients to show th|
over what is undoubtedly one of
most attractive sub-divisions yet
fered in the vicinity of Victoria,
Beautiful.

PORT OF NEW WESTMINSTER
'rogress and Possibilities of its Harbor Scheme—How it Will Cater
to the Panama Route
(By Kenneth Myers, New Westminster)
w Westminster comes before the public as a port ambitious for
nama Canal traffic, ancl the export wheat trade of Alberta and
hewan. The plans announced by Mayor Lee last month are the
Df more than two years work by the mayor and the civic admin-
n of New Westminster. During those years little was allowed
out concerning the scheme, with the result that all arrangements
e made without the success of the plans being prejudiced,
ie object of these plans is to build a great fresh water harbor
ockage for the largest ships of the Pacific Ocean on the great
River in the neighborhood of New Westminster. Realizing that
without railways are useless, the city has entered into negotiations
ie Canadian Northern Railway, Great Northern Railway, ancl
ailways. The Canadian Pacific Railway is willing to give every
nodation to the completion of the plans, while the Chicago, Mil-
and Puget Sound Railway is taking interest in the proceedings,
s expressed its intention of coming to New Westminster within
ct few years. The Canadian Northern Railway and the Great
rn Railway are the most immediately interested. Mayor Lee
en in close consultation with Sir William Mackenzie and Sir
Mann, and matters have now reached that stage where it can
fidently stated that the Canadian Northern Railway is preparing
: advantage of the splendid facilities offered by the scheme.
Lee, who is now in London, held a conference with the Great
rn officials at St. Paul on his way out, ancl it is extremely likely
is railway will also take direct advantage of the plans proposed.
Owns Its Own Waterfront
ew Westminster starts its harbor development with the great
age of owing almost every foot of its own waterfront. This
i it to go ahead without asking for the assistance of any private
tion, and at the same time supply industries with sites on
ible terms. Realizing this condition of affairs and the un-
led advantage existing on the Fraser River for the construction
of the finest fresh water ports on the Pacific coast, Mayor Lee
1 a rough scheme of developing these advantages over two years
To perfect these and to make certain of their feasibility the city
some eighteen months ago voted a sum of $15,000 for the
ment of Mr. A. O. Powell, a prominent harbor engineer.
r. Powell was soon convinced of the possibilities of the scheme,
lied the river at all seasons and finally drew up the plans. He
refully worked out the estimates of the cost ancl this has been
to be in the neighborhood of only $6,000,000. Compared with
ults to be obtained ancl with the expenditures made at other
:his sum is trifling and as it would only be spent gradually during
t five or six years, it would not prove a burden in any way.

main channel, and partly within the city limits and partly in the
adjoining municipality of Richmond.
Harbor Commission Will Handle Details
The details of the docks will be left to the proposed harbor commission, but as a first step it has been suggested that the channel be
dredged to a width of only two hundred and fifty feet, with a turning
basin at the end, and sufficient dockage to accommodate the present
shipping of the coast. Then as the trade would grow, the remaining
docks could be put in according to the completed scheme, and the
channel dredged to its full width.
With regard to the fifteen miles of river from the docks to the sea,
works have already been started by the Dominion Government which
will, when completed, give an average depth of about thirty-five feet
for the whole distance. The channel, with the exception of one bend,
will be almost straight, ancl ships will be able to come up under their
own steam ancl docks in the quiet water of the Westminster waterway
without the expensive assistance of tugs.
At the sand-heacls at the mouth of the river, the Dominion Government has let the contract for the first 6,900 feet of jetty, which will
confine the stream to its channel ancl cause the silt carried clown by the
Fraser River to be carried right out to the deep waters of the Gulf of
Georgia. The Dominion Government is committed to an expenditure
of over $2,000,000 on the improvement of this channel and already a
goocl depth of water has been secured all the way from the sea to New
Westminster, and points further up the river, so that ten thousand ton
vessels have docked at Port Mann without difficulty in the past.
Railways and Proposed Scheme
In trying to link up this proposed system of clocks with the Canadian Northern Railway and other railways it was found that the key
to the position was on Front Street, New Westminster. Accordingly
plans were drawn up for the widening of this street, and at the same
time for the improvement of the street's waterfront, which will give
both railways all required facilities and New Westminster a straight
municipal quay of over a mile in length. The plans call for the widening of the street to one hundred ancl ninety-two feet in all, and the
construction beyond this of an unbroken line of wharves with warehouse and factory accommodation along the whole front. The street
will then be continued west in a straight line by a railway bridge over
the north arm on to Lulu Island. On Lulu Island there exists acres
of land available for railway yards, industries, etc.
According to the proposed plans the Canadian Northern Railway
will run oft* the bridge over elevated tracks along this distance ancl
across the proposed railway bridge down to the grade on Lulu Island.
The same plans, also call for the construction of a fine passenger depot
almost opposite the present city hall. The Canadian Pacific Railway
ancl Great Northern already have tracks together with the British
Columbia Electric Railway on Front Street.

same, but if we do not let other
countries have a say in the affairs of

By preventing the world expansion
of Germany at the present time both
France and Britain are strengthening
her hand in Europe and confining her
naval power to the North Sea, which
fact compels Britain to tie her battle
fleets to the same waters. Had Germany other interests to protect away
from home waters she would be compelled to disperse her squadrons and
then Britain would be able to properly protect her trade routes as she
has always done in the past instead
of having to enter into alliances and
agreements, which can only restrict
freedom of action and lead us into international complications without being of any material benefit to ourselves.
STRAIGHT TALK
In the editorial columns of "The
Fruit Magazine, Scientific and Canadian Citizen for August, the " 'American' Settler" and the "Dangers of
Life in Cities," are given prominence.
The former is a plea for fair treatment for the immigrant, with logical
arguments in his favor; and the latter
seeks to emphasize the remarks of
Dr. Max Xordau, of London, on the
subject of degeneration of the race
through too much city life.
The frontispiece shows a four-color
plate of "harmless birds" so far as
agriculture  in   Canada  is  concerned.
The "Ottawa Letter," the "Serial
Story" and "Lady Adanac's" department are exceedingly interesting, besides special articles on "Crown Gall,"
"Hairy Root," "Brown Rot," "Breeding Stock for Utility," "Cutworms,"
"Mushrooms," "Statistics on Canada,"
the "Dry-Farming Congress" and the
"B. C. Market Commissioner's Report" appear. The number is up to
the usual standard.

STAMFORD
PARK
/
" Uplands' in Miniature
The Last, Best, Nearest Subdivision
This delightful residential property is only two miles from
the centre of the city and half a mile outside the city limits.
It is nearer the Post Office and City Hall than Oak Bay, the
Willows and several subdivisions which have sold at sight.
The property is lightly and beautifully
wooded. It is laid out with a central drive
which gives access to every lot and ter
minates in a scenic park. This park will
furnish a permanent recreation ground
for the lucky purchasers of lots in the
Stamford Park Estate.
Stamford Park starts within a few feet of
of Cedar Hill Road and is practically parallel with same for its full length. It
commands a far reaching panoramic view
overlooking Cadboro Bay to the northeast and Oak Bay and the Straits of Juan
de Fuca to the south.
The property varies from gently sloping
meadow land and shady, cool oak groves
to "upland" of scenic grandeur. The
lowest point on the property is higher
than Cedar Hill Road. Its panoramic
sweep of view stretches from Cordova Bay
to Esquimalt Harbor.
Looking south from Stamford Park Victoria, "the city beautiful," lies at one's
feet with the gorgeous Olympic Range
as a background.
The lots in Stamford Park range from
50x122 to 50x136 with a few special lots
that run to a quarter of an acre each.
To insure a high class of residences in
Stamford Park there are protective building restrictions which will tend to preserve
the high character which this neighborhood already enjoys.
Stamford Park contains about 100 lots.
The sale will open on Wednesday morning,
August 14th, at 9 o'clock.
The prices will be from $100 to $200 per lot
cheaper than any nearby property.
Twenty-five applications have already
been received for reservations and owing
to the limited number of lots it is necessary, in order to avoid disappointment,
that prompt application should be made
by intending purchasers.
Prices and terms are so reasonable that
this lovely property will be within reach
of everyone desirous of possessing a
beautiful home close in.
Stamford Park is within 4 minute's walk
of the projected Shelbourne St. and Mt.
Douglas Park electric railway.
Not the least important feature of the
Stamford Park property is that it possesses
excellent natural drainage, thus ensuring
sanitary conditions.
A motor car is always on hand for use of prospective buyers at the office of the sole agents

That it looks pretty well compared
with the condition of affairs in Vancouver, which will be without a
theatre after September.
* *   *
That the Dominion Government
did not take much stock in the
"teredo" argument.
* *   *
That as soon as the Minister read
The Week, he gave instructions that
in future captured fish pirates should
be hauled to Victoria instead of Vancouver.
* *   *
That nothing has been heard of
Carmody, or of any action on the
part of the Victoria Automobile Association against his fellow offenders.
* *   *
That if the Association found it
could not prosecute them, it should
have taken other disciplinary action.
* *   *
That the Colonist rather understates the facts when it says that the
total area of Victoria sub-divisions is
only one-fortieth of 40,000 acres.
* *   *
That as Calgary has sold sub-divisions capable of housing three million people, there is a very wide margin of safety in Victoria yet.
That the plan insisted on by the
new City Engineer of paving one side
of the street first is an excellent one.
That The Week hears that there is
a possibility that Amundsen, the great
Antarctic navigator, may shortly visit
Victoria on a lecturing tour.
* *   *
That he would receive a hearty
welcome as a genuine discoverer of a
Pole.
That the Darrow trial is more a
trial of patience than anything else,
and looks like stretching out till the
crack of doom.
* *   *
That none are so hard to convince
as those who do not wish to be convinced.
* *   *
That this is particularly true of the
Liberal   Press   with   respect   to the
breakwater.
* *   *
That the best investment Victorians
can make this week is to buy a dollar
season ticket for the Cricket Tournament.
* *   *
That they will have the chance of
seeing twenty-six games at an average cost of four cents per game.
* *   *
That tickets are on sale at the
office of Stuart & Reeves, corner of
Fort and Douglas Streets.
* *   *
That the Colonist has added another subject to those sacred to the
big gooseberry season,—"to belt or to
brace."
* *   *
That if every belted earl took a
"bracer," the suspense would be over.
* *   *
That on reflection "Hornet" agrees
with the Colonist, that it would be
rather embarrassing to have Mr. Asquith and Mr. Winston Churchill
seated in the Strangers' Gallery while
the debate on Naval Defence was
progressing in the Canadian Parliament.
* *   *
That the general public were unable to regard the suggestion seriously until its delicacy was pointed out.
That the best thing the Christian
Scientists can do is to continue healing and let their critics do the arguing.
* *   *
That W. C. Moresby has another
guess coming as to the interpretation
of the speed clause in the Automobile Act.
* *   *
That the splitting of hairs is not
much favoured by Police Magistrate
Prior.
* *   *
That the fiasco at English Bay
ought to terminate the fad for employing women policemen.
* *   *
That Alderman Okell as Acting
Mayor is the right man in the right
place.
* *   *
That if the influx of low-class foreigners into Victoria is not checked,
there will be more sentences in which
the lash will figure.
* *   *
That "Hornet" was accosted yesterday by a B. C. E. R. car conductor
thus:—"De rule dey sa- showee de

A DARE
To the Editor—"Why do the most worthless men often get the best wives?"
Answer—"I don't know. Ask your hus

THEIR  FEELING
"Well, old sport, how do you feel? I've
just eaten a bowl of ox-tail soup and feel
bully."
"I've just eaten a plate of hash and feel
like  everything."
AN  IMPROVEMENT
"I got a new attachment for the family
piano," said Mr. Growcher; "and it's a wonderful improvement."
"What is it?"
"A lock and key."
To Protect Canadian
Forests
Mr. James Lawler, of Ottawa, Secretary of the Canadian Forestry Association has just returned from Montreal and the City of Quebec, where
he was making arrangements for the
Dominion Forestry Convention to be
held upon the invitation of the Government of British Columbia, in Victoria, B. C, on Sept. 4, 5 and 6. He
found great interest being taken in
this convention, in which Sir Richard
McBride and Hon. W. R. Ross will
personally take part, and which will
be held in the best time to see the
Pacific Coast and the prairies. Hon.
Jules Allard, Minister of Lands and
Forests for Quebec, has consented to
attend and he will be accompanied by
some of the officers of his department. Eastern lumbermen and forest
engineers will also be well represented. The railways have granted greatly reduced rates for the return trip
to Victoria to delegates. Mr. Lawler, who is looking after the arrangements, states that everything is looking well for one of the largest conventions ever held on the coast.
IN PRACTISE
Husband—"Your extravagance is awful.
When I die you'll probably have to beg."
Wife—"Well, I should be better off than
some poor woman who never had any practise."
A LONG JUMP
A political orator, evidently better acquainted with Western geography than with
the language of the Greeks, recently exclaimed with fervor that his principles should
prevail "from Alpha to Omaha."
DOUBTFUL
"Jones is extremely attentive to his wife."
"Still very much in love with her, eh?"
"Either that, or he is afraid of her."

THE Staggard Tread Tires
are the most economical you can buy
because the double thickness and quality
of the riding treads equal that of any two
ordinary tires.
Their chief value, however, lies in the protection they afford both passengers and car in
checking every tendency to slip or skid on any
kind of wet or slippery road or when making
sharp emergency turns.
Write for Our Booklet
"THE  TIRE  PERFECT"
which tells why Republic "Staggard Tread" Tires
