Let Portugal choose her own govern-
nt, and settle her domestic squabbles as
e chooses, but she must prove her power
keep within international convention-
ities, and avoid the faults of the govern-
lent slie has overthrown.   The European
ess can do little more than say this. The
iwers, we are told, will keep the ring
ar and let Monarchists and Republicans
lit it out.    Yet the newspapers can not
lp adding a little advice.    Some publics look upon the revolutionists as mere-
a section of the mercenary spoil-dividers,
Ihers predict  that  they will  soon find
jemselves in hot water.   But the Repub-
an organ of Madrid, the Pais, goes down
the causes of the successful conspiracy
d declares that the following were "the
ie harbingers of the Republic":    "Fre-
ent change sof the Ministry.    Dishon-
:y in the Monarchical party, a league of
e-booters rather than a political organ-
ition.   The prevalent dislike for the un-
pular   Queen   Mother.     The   growing
umphs of the Republican party, led by
moral and intellectual aristocracy of
3 country."    That this statement is a
[tie one-sided is the conviction of the Lon-
n  Saturday Review,  which  remarks:
good deal of money has been sunk in
er to bring about this week's events,
:1 it is in a high degree unlikely that Dr.
aga's colleagues will deal permanently
austere morality and immaculate jus-
|e.    The Republican conspiracy is the
ispiraey of an interested clique.    It is
the movement of a patriotic party
tided  to  desperation  by governmental
anny or possest with a fervor of reform.
Iirtugal will outgrow the Republicans."
lie Republicans are regarded by the Con-
Irvative Epoca   (Madrid)   merely as a
iolent and reckless minority," and the
|remden Blatt (Vienna), speaking in the
nie tone, remarks sarcastically:   "In the
.oclamation  issued  by  the  Provisional
overmnent  we  read:    'The House of
raganza is forever exiled from Spain.'
o mortal, however, can safely predict
liat any exile will be 'forever,' especially
hen it begins without the slightest ap-
arance of free choice and without the
ist sanction of right."    As a rule the
erman papers are calm and impartial,
efore the Powers can do or say anything,
Jiinarks the official Norddeutsche Zeitung
■Berlin), "they must wait for the future
rocess of events in Portugal."   The sud-
enness of the revolution startles the Ber-
Iner Tageblatt, and proves "that the monarchical regime was rotten and dead as a
rithered tree." The Deutsche Tagezeitung
■Berlin) is shocked by the Army's parti-
lipation in the violence of the Republican
larty, and it holds up this circumstance
Is a warning to its own Government.   To
luote its words:   "It is a lesson for all
monarchical states, and especially for the
■lerman Empire.   We may draw from it
1 moral—not* to permit the democratic and
3volutionary spirit to find entrance into
|ie German Army."   Of course this is the
ery point which gives encouragement to
lie Humanite   (Paris)   and furnishes a
|.xt for the following outburst:    "No re-
ttlution has succeeded without the parti-
fpation of a fraction of the Army, officers
well as soldiers.   .   .   .   Consequently
is the duty of the revolutionaries to
bcure the sympathy of the Army and to
|npress upon them the majesty and bene-
cence of a revolution which is backed by
lie exploited and down-trampled classes."
lhe rest of the Leftist papers of Paris, the
ladical,   the   Lanterne,   the   Republique
Kaneaise, echo the idea of the Journal
[Paris): "It is the victory of democratic
Indencies."   Mr. Rochefort, of the Patrie
3aris), can not indorse this view of the
liestion without a fling at Queen Marie-
nelie.   If she had not had the ambitious
pod of the House of Orleans in her veins
"she would never have been blinded to the
coming fate of her younger son, whose
tragic   end   the  whole  world   foresaw."
Speaking of the character of the Revolution, the London Times says magisterially:
"It is not for foreign countries to sit in
judgment on the methods by which a nation changes its institutions, unless those
methods are absolutely abhorrent to the
conscience of the civilized world. The Portuguese revolution has not been without
violence and bloodshed, and it may have
been accompanied by some regrettable and
painful incidents, but there do not appear
to have been any cruel or disgraceful excesses;   and, however much we may sympathize with the unfortunate young King
and the members of his family, one is
bound to admit that,  if revolutions are
justifiable, there have been many far more
difficult to explain or to excuse than that
which has just occurred at Lisbon." Somewhat more supercilious is the sentence of
the aristocratic Morning Post (London):
"In Great Britain the Revolution in Portugal is regarded with critical indifference mixt with sincere sympathy for the
young King.    Judgment is reserved and
will go by results.   If the Republicans can
produce  and support  statesmen  able to
maintain order without alienating popular
sympathy, to educate the people without
tyranny, and to encourage work and thrift
without extravagance, the new Government
will intime gain British sympathies." Mr.
Rudyard Kipling's words "in a very similar crisis"  are quoted by The Evening
Standard and St. James's Gazette (London), "which are to this effect: 'It is not
good for Southern Europeans to erect Republics;   they  degenerate  too  soon  into
military dictatorships.' "    "The Republican flag may be hosted and a few thousand men may shout "Hurrah! " says the
Vossische Zeitung (Berlin), "but we have
yet to learn how deeply the Republican
labouring classes have been imprest." Then
follows this advice:   "The chances of the
Republic's victory will be secure only when
the hands of the leaders are shown to be
clean, corruption driven out of court, and
financial and commercial reforms earnestly pursued."    Interposition by England
would  only be necessary,   declares  The
Morning   Chronicle   (London),   in   case
some other Power, such as Germany, for
instance, took advantage of the occasion to
grab her colonies.    Thus we read:   "The
other aspect of what the Revolution may
bring about, outside of Portugal itself, is
directed toward the Portuguese colonies.
There is no reason, however, why a change
of Government at Lisbon, if it is accepted
throughout Portugal, should change the relation of that country to her possessions
beyond the seas.   If Portugal accepts the
Republic the Portuguese in the other territories over which flies the Portuguese flag
will also acquiesce in it.    Only in case
Portugal should be divided against herself
would the position of tbe Colonies present
much difficulty.    In that case there might
be a* risk of interference by other states
with some of the Portuguese colonies, and
it would then be necessary for the British
Government to consider how best to give
efi'ect to the national policy, which it may
be presumed would favor the integrity of
the territorial possessions of the Portuguese nation."
REDMOND PILLORIED
The Irish Party in jts demand for
Home Rule has sometimes been unfortunate in finding that its foes have been those
of its own household. In a notable case
of assassination, the Phoenix Park atrocity, the perpetrators were betrayed by one
of their own party. It is in this way that
the Irish have often appeared to be fatally
divided upon questions which they regard
as vital to their national existence. If we
are to believe his accusers, no less a person
than John Redmond, who has been
. as Mr. Asquith's "Old Man of the Mountain," has become an object of obloquy
to other members of the Home-Rule party,
and has been   accused  of  saying  things
whicii John Dillon, Thomas Power O'Connor, and William O'Brien regard with execration.    In short, he has whittled down
his platform of Home Rule until, like the
grinning Cheshire cat in "Alice in Wonderland," it has no substance left and becomes a mere hollow grimace.   Mr. Redmond is represented as having told a reporter of The Daily Express  (London)
exactly what his notion of Home Rule
was.   Mr. Redmond repudiates the statement attributed to him, but Mr. William
O'Brien refuses to believe the repudiation,
ilr. Redmond's alleged words Avere:   "Our
demand for Home Rule does not mean that
we want to break with the British Empire.
We are entirely loyal to the Empire as
such and we desire to strengthen the Imperial bonds through a federal system of
government.    AVe  do not  demand  such
complete local autonomy as the British
self-governing Colonies possess, for we are
willing to forego the right to making our
own tariff and are prepared to abide by
any fiscal system enacted by the British
Parliament.   Also, we are prepared to bear
our full burden with England, Scotland,
and Wales in supporting such Imperial
charges as the Army, Navy, and the Diplomatic Corps, which is not done by the
Colonies."   Now the Express is, according
to The Freeman, "one of the bitterest and
most contemptible of all anti-Irish papers
of London."   The crediting Mr. Redmond
with such statements is sheer* "malignity"
on the part of those who are "trying to
make a national crisis out of the irresponsibilities  of  an  American   interviewer."
The Irish organ accordingly denies that
Mr. Redmond had made any such statement, and tells us with evident satisfaction
that the Irish Home Ruler had cabled
from New York to John Dillon, a leader
of the Nationalist party, a complete repudiation of tlie statements credited to him
by The Express. Then Mr. O'Brien speaks
as follows, discrediting Mr. Redmond's repudiation, and bringing into the question
of Irish Home Rule and its leaders "confusion worse confounded":    "It is the
usual game.    Mr.' Redmond ventures to
assert  his  independent judgment.    Mr.
Dillon repudiates him, and Mr. Redmond
eats humble pie in order to retain his
office.   So it will doubtless be now again,
but this time the conflict between them goes
too deep to he concealed from the public.
. . . The fact that Mr. Redmond did not
manfully repeat his declaration in his public speeches in America while Mr. T. P.
O'Connor was singing 'God save tlie King'
and pouring out Imperial sentiment of
the most blatant order to his Canadian
audiences only increases the discredit of
the transaction.    Doubtless now that he
has banked his dollars Mr. Redmond will
discover some means of appeasing Mr. Dillon, but the net  result of the American
'deal' will be to make both Mr. Redmond
and Mr.  Dillon impossible.    All that  is
decent and intelligent in Ireland is up in
arms against them both."    Mr.  Dillon's
comments on the "transaction" are equally
pointed:   "It is safe to say that no section
of Irishmen or Englishmen will believe
that  Reniond  behaved  candidly or even
honestly by anybody in this transaction.
It required no prescience to foresee that he
would repeat his performance of  1904,
when, cabling from America about Lord
Dunraven's  first   devolution   scheme,   he
saiil:   'The announcement is of the first
importance.   It is simply a declaration for
Home Rule.    With  these men with  us
Home Rule may come at any moment.'
And the moment he returned to Ireland
and received an order from Dillon he did
penance for his cablegram and denounced
Si _t^
$pj__ttlt*v,n--. the most truculent
language . . . Redmond is an opportunist
who always misses his opportunity,.a politician whose judgment is almost always
right and whose action is almost invariably
wrong."
THE CRIPPEN CASE
The moral of the Crippcn case is that if
an American makes up his mind to murder his wife he bad better do it at home
and not in England.    Here, declares the
Chicago Tribune, sueh a murderer has a
fair chance to escape punishment entirely
through a jury befooled by a smart kwyer
or through a   fanatically   technical   Supreme Court. What his   chances   are in
England may be inferred from the fact
that in a London court the somewhat complex case of Dr. Ilawley II. .Crippcn, accused of   wife-murder,   terminated   in a
death sentence after a trial lasting only
four days.   "The case," remarks the New
York Commercial, 'was of exactly the sort
that are   invariably   stretched   out over
weeks and months here   in   the   United
States—the crime itself a most uncanny
and revolting one, and the morbid among
the masses excitedly eager for every detail
of the testimony and the procedure."   "It
would be unfair to assume that Crippen,
had he been tried for a similar crime in
this country, would have surely gone free
or escaped the extreme penalty," says the
New Orleans Time-Democrat; "but no one
doubts that his trial here would have been
much longer drawn out and its result decidedly uncertain, with a strong likelihood
of a mistrial, or appeals, reversals, retrials,
and the consequent delays seemingly unavoidable under the American system of
procedure."    The same paper is at one
with most of its contemporaries when it
asserts that, in spite of the swiftness of
procedure in the London court, Dr. Crippen "has had, we think, as fair a trial as
could have been given him anywhere."   To
emphasize a comparison which they find
far from flattering to American criiuinal-
court methods many papers recall the fact
that in Tennessee the trial of the Coopers
for shooting ex-Senator Carmack—an act
committed two years ago in broad daylight
on the principal street of one of America's
large cities—is not. yet finally disposed of.
Others refer to the indeterminate outcome
of the twelve weeks' trial of Harry Thaw
in New York for the murder of Stanford
White—a case, as the New York World remarks, in which "all the more important
facts were indisputable."   The same paper
reminds us that while the Thaw trial was
going on a London court tried the murderer of the great merchant Whiteley in
live hours.   "Not 2 per cent, of our murderers go to thc gallows, even when there
is no doubt whatever of their guilt," declares the Baltimore Sun; and the Richmond Journal asks pertinently: "Is it difficult to understand why murder  is more
prevalent in this country than in probably
nny other civilized country in the world?"
The facts of the Crippen case, it will be
remembered, are briefly as follows:  After
Dr. Crippen had mysteriously disappeared
from his London house the mutilated body
of a woman, believed to be that of his
wife, was found buried in the cellar.   The
doctor was finally traced and captured as
he landed  in Canada with his mistress,
Ethel Leneve, and was taken back to England for trial.   The evidence showing the
body to be that of his wife, as well as that
pointing to him as the author of the crime,
while very convincing, was admittedly circumstantial rather than direct.   The case
was tried at the Old Bailey before Lord

Corner
By Trie lounqer
There is absolutely nothing doing
this week; there are no new scandals; there is nothing in particular
about which I can roast the mayor;
in fact there is not a thing on which
I can get busy, so I suppose that I
shall have to content myself with
talking a lot of nonsense about nothing in particular.

Let us discuss the foolishness of
mothers. Fathers are bad enough,
but being a bachelor, I naturally think
the mothers are worse. Every mother
seems to think her own children
swans, when, as a rule, they are the
biggest geese under God's sun. And
they are immoral geese, too. Mother
will tell you, with all the serious face
in the world, that her children are
the best in the Province; that they
have never caused her a moment's
worry, and that they are not like
Mrs. Jones', Smith's or Robinson's
children next door, who are really a
disgrace to the neighborhood. And
you listen to all this with a broad
smile, whilst inwardly you are discussing the advisability of telling the
good mother that her son is the biggest "rip" in town and that her daughter was mentioned in The  Book of
Revelations.

I'm not talking out of the back of
my neck. I am saying a few words
about things of which I have full
knowledge. Only last Saturday a
man whom I know well was up at
the Victoria-Vancouver "Rugger"
game. He dropped his stick through
the boards and went down to recover it. Incidentally, he has never
seen it since. It had a heavy silver
band, with his name and address in
full. But "honesty" is at a premium
in Canada. Beneath the boards he
found a young "hoodlum" gazing up
at thc ladies as they left the Grandstand. The man was not only a man,
but a gentleman, and it is not hard
to guess what he did. He just caught
that young bounder such a kick on
that part of his anatomy which he
had been accustomed to use for sitting-down purposes that the little
devil went off howling. Serve him
right, too. But at the same time,
was it altogether the boy's fault? I
trow not. I blame the parents. There
are more people married in this world
who have not the slightest idea how
to raise children, than I care to
think of. Such marriages are to my
mind absolutely criminal. Mothers
and fathers have a duty to the community which thc said community
will some day make them fulfill. It
is not the slightest atom of good
pretending that "ignorance" is "innocence." It won't work now-a-days.
It never did work very well. Parents,
wake up. Talk to your children.
Don't think that you can shock them;
you can't do it. But you might make
them think sense. It's worth trying.
Of course there is not one of you
who read this but who will apply it
to the house next door.   More d d
fool you. The Lounger may be a fool,
but he has a whole lot of good ideas.

More trouble from the missionaries. These men or religion may
be very excellent men; they probably are, but Christ never said a
truer word in His life than when He
said that He came not "to give peace
on earth, but rather division." (Luke
12:51). I know a good many missionaries personally; they belong to
the family, but it seems to me from
what I havc learnt from hear-say and
reading that the missionary appears
to be thc fore-runner of the gin-
seller. I see by the daily paper that
these same well-meaning, but tactless, persons have raised trouble
amongst the Indians north of Hazelton. Personally, I always have a
great sympathy with the Chinaman,
who, after reading an account of a
lynching in Texas, said that it was
about time that the Chinese sent out
their own missionaries to civilise the
white folk. And that's no dream
either.   The average heathen is a bet-

A meeting of the local members of
The Over-Seas Club is to be held
in Victoria, within a few days. The
meeting was billed for Thursday,
Nov. 17th, but this has been postponed and the members will meet in
all probability on Tuesday, Nov.
22nd. Particulars can be obtained
from The Committee. The Committee distinctly wish it to be understood
that affiliated members, that is, men
who have joined the Club and are
visiting Victoria, will be more than
welcome, as will those men who are
desirous of joining the Club. Subjects of other nations, of course, will
be out of order in making their appearance.

How this Empire scheme has
spread. And I honestly believe that
Lord Northcliffe (Harmsworth that
was) has done more to develop it than
anyone else. And all credit to him.
I was in the Old Country when
"The Daily Mail" was first established as a half-penny paper and I
am prepared to swear now that it
gave better news at a less price than
any other paper in England, Scotland or Wales.

Of course it has nothing to do with
The Lounger. I know that, and I
don't expect to get any credit for it.
But it is a funny thing that another
of those reforms which I have urged
in these columns is being undertaken. The two corners on the west
side of the C. P. R. hotel are at
length being put into proper shape
by the City. The latter has been responsible for them and refused to allow the C. P. R. to make them presentable. Of course, I sha'nt get any
credit for this, but the time will, come
when a group of admiring citizens
will surround my coffin and lay a
wreath expressive of the gratitude
which Victoria's representatives feel
for the man who a-gitated all their
grievances.
I am not a "sport." You can blame
it on my eye-sight; I never have been
a man like other men, to play games,
go hunting, shooting, fishing or other things. But I have always got
along pretty well with men and they
have always been willing to tell me
what they think. I have talked with
two of the most prominent sportsmen in town and they both have said
the same thing. The Victoria team
won the game on Saturday last; they
played well, but they could have
played better. They don't practise
enough. Now, get busy boys. Your
uncle's a lazy devil, but that's no
reason why you should be. Get
busy;  practise,  and  be    real,    good
footballers.

Oh, you fools. So you are finding it out at last, are you, you "peeping Toms" of Chatham Street. It
did not require the eye of "A Lounger" nor even the brain of one to foresee what would happen when you
closed the "Restricted Area." Your
wives and daughters are now being
accosted on the streets. I knew they
would be. You are trying to make
Government Street like Piccadilly
and Regent Street as they were six
years ago. You'll do it, all right, all
right. When I first came to Victoria,
six years ago, any girl could walk
down the street, and if she were respectable there was not a man who
would dream of accosting her. Now,
you religious persons have closed up
"The Restricted Area," and you have
the infinite gall to make a "kick" because your wives and daughters can't
walk down the street without being
accosted. It's entirely your own
fault. Just put that in your pipe and
smoke it, and if you don't like the
brand buy some more tobacco and

Helen Terry's  Birthplace
I was born at Coventry. Many
years afterwards, when people were
kind enough to think that the house
in which I was born deserved to be
discovered, there was a dispute as to
which house in Market Street could
claim me. The dispute was left unsettled in rather a curious way. On
one side of the narrow street a haberdasher's shop bore the inscription
"Birthplace of Ellen Terry." On the
other, an eating house declared itself
to be "the original birthplace." I
have never been able to arbitrate in
thc matter, my statement that my
mother had always said that the
house was "on the right-hand side,
coming from the market-place" being
apparently of no use. I have heard
lately that one of the birthplaces has
retired from the competition, and that
the haberdasher has the field to himself. I am glad for the sake of those
friends of mine who have bought his
handkerchiefs and ties as souvenirs.
There is, however, nothing very attractive about the house itself. It is
better built than a house of the same
size would be built now, and it has
a certain old fashioned respectability,
but that is the end of its praises. Coventry itself makes up for the deficiency. It is a delightful town, and it
was a happy chance that made me a
native by birth of Warwickshire,
Shakespeare's own country.

"suffragette," the keen interest of Ellen Terry's daughter, Elsa Craig, and
of many of her friends in the English
feminist movement, has drawn Miss
Terry's name more or less into it.
She took an active part in the great
procession in London on June 18th,
which embodied a new spirit of quiet
and effective determination. "They
don't seem like suffragettes at all,"
was the remark heard on all sides.
Miss Terry is a keen believer in
fair play for everybody, women included, but she has no patience with
sex partisanship—nor lack of femininity. Recently she corected an expression in this regard with reference to her forthcoming American
tour, An English journal quoted her
as saying that many of Shakespeare's
women were unfeminine. She says
that she proposes to show that they
were not only highly feminine, but
that in many respects they arc similar
to the best type of womanhood today.
In fact she says that her discourses
on Shakespeare's heroines will bear
in part on Shapespeare's prophetic
genius in this regard.

A pretty story of Ellen Terry is going the rounds in England. Unlike
many artists who have achieved distinction, her memory is not short in
relation to those incidents where she
has been the receiver rather than the
giver.
A number of years ago a member
of the Workingman's Club at Hamp-
tonshire House, Hammersmith, happened to find a pretty pencil drawing
which dated back to the early forties.
On investigation it proved to be a
sketch of Miss Terry's mother, by
Sir Martin Shee, P.R.A. The man
sent it to Miss Terry as it seemed to
him that it belonged to her.
Miss Terry has never been able to
forget this incident, as she herself
said when she played "Portia" at the
dramatic class at Hampshire House
last summer. Although very busily
engaged with her English dramatic
work and with the discourses which
she is preparing for her American
season this Fall, she has just made
another appearance at this year's benefit for the Club, this time with her
signed copies of her "Story of My
Life," containing as it happens a reproduction of thc early Victorian
sketch.
Ellen Terry will be at the Victoria
Theatre on Tuesday,  Dec. 6th.
While catchy music, pretty girls and
scenery, lots of life and good management are absolute essentials to a
comedy with music, to make it successful in this day and generation,
talented and accomplished principals
must also be provided before a play
can command the earnest attention of
the theatre going public of to-day.
It was with this important feature
in mind that Mr. William F. Mann
set about to organize the company
which is to present "A Broken Idol"
at the Victoria Theatre on Monday,
Dec. 5th, and it was because of the
solicitation with which the selections
were made that this play was so suc-

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
An Englishman in Spain
BY BOHEMIAN
At thc present time Spain looms
high in thc public mind, and it is possible that a few recollections from
the pen of one who has travelled
through the more badly disaffected
districts might not be without interest to the casual reader.
It mus be nine years since I first
visited Barcelona, the city which is always regarded as the hot-bed of
Cpanish revolutionism. Barcelona is
the capital of Catalonia; it is the
chief manufacturing city of Spain,
and it is the city from which Christopher Columbus sailed to discover
this new world in which we live. It
has claims to distinction on all three
grounds. It has other claims, however, and these are based on more
modern considerations. It is a splot-
lessly clean town; it has fine public
buildings, whilst its main streets
with their trees would put any western Canadian city to the blush.
I shall never forget my first impressions of Barcelona. I had travelled straight through there from
Paris; all long railway journeys are
tedious, but the P. L. & M. certainly
contrive to make the ordinary Bohemian as uncomfortable as possible.
I well remember boarding thc train
at the St. Lazaire Station. The station, they call them depots out here,
was packed. It has only been recently that the French railways have allowed their passengers to w->;'
the side of the platform before the
train came in.
The train backed up in thc Gare de
St. Lazaire with men clinging to every portion of it. I and my friend
eventually got seats in a "first class"
carriage which was shared by a couple
of French consumptives, who were
nervous about their health and refused to have any windows open. Any
one who has travelled in a French
train and who has had experience of
the underfround heating which prevails on their systems will appreciate
the condition in which we arrived at
Avignon, the junction for Marseilles
and Spain. We had a weird experience there; instead of "shunting"
their trains they move them sideways.
I remember that the under-ground
treatment had so affected my feet
that I could not put on my boots
and I walked the length of thc Avignon station in my socks in order to
get my morning coffee.
Well, we left Avignon and started
out for Spain. I have forgotten the
name of thc boundary town, but I
know it well by sight for on my return journey T was "pinched" for
smuggling. I idd not know then that
silver-ware was dutiable in France. I
know now and am a wiser, but I trust
not a better man, for the experience.
It must have been four o'clock
when we reached Catalonia's Capital.
It was a lovely day and the town
was looking its best, and when Barcelona docs try to look good she can
win money on any other city that I
have ever visited. Her first appearance is in her favour; the visitor
leaves the station an dstarts to walk
to his hotel; that is to say if he has
any sense. Thc business man, or the
habitue of the town may drive, but
the man who visits the place and
wants to appreciate it will be wise to
send his luggage up by the hotel 'bus
and avail himself of the privilege of
walking to his destination. I cannot
recall thc name of thc street which
one first enters when leaving the
station; I know that it is one of the
finest streets I have ever seen. On
each side there are broad sidwalks;
then a roadway and in the middle a
wide, tree-shaded walk for pedestrians, leading up to the Customs House,
the Statue erected to Christopher Co
lumbus and thc turning into the main
street of the town. Here, one wanders up "The Rambla," which is a
tree-shaded, sparrow crowded walk,
and altogether a street which one remembers.
People are apt to think of Spain
as an out-of-date country, but it is
a funny thing that I saw my first
electric car in the streets of Barcelona so recently as in the first year
of this  century.
Apart from thc above considerations it must be remembered that
Barcelona is practically the home of
"Pclotta"; the most fascinating game
cither to watch or play which has
been yet invented. Imagine a court
three hundred feet long by about 50;
se the players with basket-like sling-
ers fastened on to their right arms;
think of a ball so strong that the best
rubber manufacturers cannot compete with it. With these things under
consideration it is not hard to understand that "pclotta," <yhich I can
best describe as being a cut between
fives and basket ball with thc deviltry
of both, isone of the most exciting
games a man can witness.
But when all is said or clone, I believe that Barcelona, holds first
claims to my affections for the opportunity she afforded mc of visiting Montserrat, so called because of
its serrated aspect. Montserrat is
situated about twenty miles from
Barcelona. Half way up thc mountain there is a monastery which can
accommodate three thousand guests
and during the season it is filled to
overflowing. I was there at Christmas time when the place was empty,
but I shall never forget the service
whicii I attended in the monastery's
chapel. The place was empty except for me and my friends; the
monks were to the rear of the altar
the boy portion of the choir were in
the gallery; the whole place seemed
deserted, when all of a sudden we
heard the finest church singing that I
have ever heard in my life; and I
have been to King's, Cambridge,
Magdalen, Oxford, The Chapel Royal,
St.  James, and St.  Peter's, Rome.
They have a wonderful image at
Montserrat. It is known as , "The
Black Virgin of Montserrat," thc legend says that her presence on the
mountain was revealed to a hermit in
a dream; when hc awoke he went
and found the lady of his dreams in
the place of which hc had dreamt;
he noised abroad the news of his discovery, and pious people founded a
monastery in honour of "The Black
Virgin."
That is what the legend says; most
people see a strong resemblance to
the Dianas of heathen times, and regard "The Black Virgin" as a meteorite.
But Montserrat has other attractions for tourists. On thc edge of a
cliff there stands a cross which marks
thc death of many a monk in thc days
when the French were in the Peninsula. They say that Marshall Ney,
exasperated by tlie guerilla warfare
waged against his forces, and having
heard that the monks of Montserrat
had shown hospitality to these guerillas marched the holy men to the
edge of the precipice and ordered
them to walk over to their death.
From the top of Montserrat one
can gaze over to the Pyrenees,, three
hundred miles away; I do not think
that a more enjoyable holiday was
ever spent by any one man than
the one spent in North-Western
Spain nine years ago by
MUSIC AND THE STAGE

cessful during its run in Boston, New
York and Chicago. Manager Mann,
after the greatest effort, has succeeded in sending the company on the
road, thereby enabling other cities
an opportunity of witnessing what
was called by one of Chicago's critics
"Chicago's best musical show."
"Madam X"
Local theatregoers are manifesting
unusual interest in thc the approach
ing visit of Henry V. Savage's production of "Madame X," Bisson's
great emotional drama, which electrified all of Europe for a year and
ran almost as long to consistently
crowded houses in Chicago and New
York last season.
The plot of this sensational play
is typically French, and concerns an
unhappy woman who is driven from
home for infidelity. ! Her husband
regrets his harshness and searches
for, but fails to find the erring wife.
She becomes an adventuress and ad-1
dieted to the use of liquor. While in j
a maudlin mood she talks of her past
and gives her companion the idea
of blackmailing her former husband,
who has become the president of the
civil tribunal. Her associate makes
known his intention, and when she
begs of him to disist and he refuses,
she strikes him dead in anger.
She is arested but refuses to attempt any defence or to make known
her identity; hence the title of "Madame X." When arrigned in court the
counsel assigned her is her own 20-
year-old son. He is ignorant of the
fact that his client is his mother. Despite its being his first case, he pleads
so well that thc woman is acquitted.
In trying to diminish the culpability
of the accused, he denounces the man
who out of pride had driven her to
what she had become, not knowing,
of course, that the man is his father
who is a spectator at the trial.
The compelling power of this situation is apparent and the drama
reaches its climax in the courtroom
scene. Although given her freedom,
the mysterious "Madame X," seeks a
different way out of her difficulty,
thus bringing the play to a logical
but surprising conclusion.
"Madame X" will be at the Victoria
Theatre on Nov. 28th.

The Prince of Pilsen
"Thc Prince of Pilsen," the most
popular of American musical comedies will be presented at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday, Nov. 21st, with
a wealth of scenic and costume equipment and an excellence of individual
and chorus impersonation rarely
shown in musical comedy performance. In fact, this delightful entertainment, combining the brightest and
best work of Gustav Luders and
Frank Pixley, has set a mark in this
especial field of performance that will
tax the talents of other composers
and authors to reach, musical comedy of modern origin is essentially
evanescent; changing tastes and times
call for a play of this kind so tuneful in its music, so dainty and poetic
in its lyrics and so thoroughly human
in its comedy that it proves the rule
of short life by becoming the exception that lives long. Such is "The
Prince of Pilsen," now in its eighth
season of constantly growing success.
For the coming engagement Henry
W. Savage has provided an all star
company, the principals of which
and the chorus contingents as well
have been chosen with a view of making the performance the best ever
given to this musical comedy. In
thc principal comedy role, Hans Wagner, a Cincinnati brewer, Mr. Jesse
Dandy, combines a personality that
exudes humor with an innate appreciation of comedy situation, so pointedly expressed by voice, look and action that he evokes almost the extreme limit of merriment. Frances
Cameron, who was the Soma in "The
Merry Widow" production, will be
thc flirtatious widow of the cast. Miss
Cameron, who is dashing in style and
has a voice of remarkable sweetness,
assumed this role in the London production, with distinguished success.
Edward Hora, the real Prince, and
Ivor Anderson, the naval lieutenant,
are valuable additions to the cast. Lillian Lawson, with her twinkling feet,
is the French maid Sidonie, while petite Dorothy Delmare will play the
bell-boy. Dainty Vera Stanley is
again Nellie Wagner, daughter of
Hans. Miss Olive North is the bewitching Edith and Mr. Wallace
Beery, the Sergeant Brie. Walter L.
Catlett will enact the role of Lord
Shrimpton and Robert O'Connor that
of Francois. The song hits in "The ;
Prince of Pilsen" arc so numerous as '
to preclude a comprehensive list.

New Grand Theatre
It will be good news to vaudeville
"fans" that Pat Reilly has been induced to bring his delightfully quaint
Irish humour from the legitimate to
the variety stage. The veteran performer's first appearance in vaudeville is at the Grand next week and
he has chosen as his vehicle a playlet
entitled "In the Days of '61" from thc
ready pen of Jack Gorman. With thc
possible exception of Cauncey Olcott
there is no better known Irish character actor on the American stage than
Mr. Reilly. Certainly there is none
better loved. In vaudeville he is assisted by clever Flo Wells and the
action of the playlet gives her several opportunities for the sweet Irish
ballads which have made her reputation.
The Tennis Trio, which includes thc
two pretty Stock Sisters, offers a line
of juggling, with Indian clubs and
tennis racquets which is distinctly
dainty and out of the groove. The
work of the trio, particularly in "passing" is fast and always accurate and
the stage picture which is maintained at all times, is all that could be desired.
Than female impersonation there is
no more difficult art in vaudeville
and "Huntress" is considered easily
the peer of any performer now making this line his specialty. Huntress
does not caricature the fair sex, he
impersonates it in its most beautiful
and striking phases and he stages
his endeavours with scenic and light-
tiful.
George Yeoman is almost too well
known to Sullivan and Considine
show-goers to require extended introduction. Among "Dutch" dialect
comedians he stands a prominent figure   and  his   fun-making  proclivities

A beginning has been made in the
movement to establish Manitoba's
section of the proposed western highway, but beyond informal discussions
of the project little action has been
taken. Thc idea is to construct a
first class roadway from the great
lakes to the Pacific coast and it is
understood here that the scheme is
already under way in Alberta and
British Columbia. Automobile enthusiasts are, of course, deeply interested and it is proposed to call a conference of various public bodies to

Lumber Arriving

after several trying experiences in endeavouring to obtain shipments of

326,000 feet en route from Prince Rupert. The barge containing this last
shipment ran on the rocks at Metla-
katla and the lumber had all to be
reloaded. Good progress is being
made on the approach, the piling of
which is gradually creeping town-
wards. Provision has been made for
two spans to be put in across the

to Victoria street will be made as a

Experimental Farm
Graham Island is anxious to have
an experimental farm and there seems
to be good reason why such should
be provided. The agricultural possibilities of that part of the province
require thorough testing before it can
be definitely stated what are the best
methods to pursue in cultivation and
as to thc varieties of products to
plant.
An instance of the necessity for experiment is shown by the fact that
Drain, who is making quite a success
of farming there, has found that seeds
sown about June 1 fare quite as well
as those sown a month earlier. It
was only after experimenting along
this line that this fact was brought
out by Mr. Drain.

Name of Dollard for a New Steamer
It is proposed to give the name of
Dollard to the new steamer that is
to be built for the buoy service on
the St. Lawrence ship channel between Montreal and Quebec. The
government has authorised the Marine and Fisheries Department to call
for tenders for the ship, which is to
be completed by the end of next summer.
In respect to the name proposed
for the new steamer, the Marine and
Fisheries Department has today received an objection from the British
Board of Trade on the ground that a
sailing vessel already has the name
of Dollard.
Efforts, however, are to be made to

Irish Wtt and Scotch
Whiskey
Not many weeks ago an Irishman drove a prominent
Victorian some miles amid torrents of pourinn- rain. The
gentleman imon arriving at his destination asked the driver
if he were not very wet. "Bedad," replied he, "Oi wouldn't
care about being so very wet, if Oi weren't so very dhry."
After this, of course, there was nothing for the gentleman
to do but treat. As Irish whisky was not available, he
ordered a "Johnnie Walker." Kilmarnock Scotch is to be
found everywhere because of its tremendous demand in
B. C. After all, there's nothing like a Johnnie Walker
when you're very wet or very dry. On all occasions, too,
when good tellows get together the correct "Scotch" is
Kilmarnock Extra Special, the famous 12-year-old in thc
square bottle. Have you tried the "Extra Special?" If not
we advise you to order this square bottle for home use.
It's the whisky par excellence for the household. Your
dealer can supply you.

Field for Dairymen
Representing the Dominion Department of agriculture and especially the cold storage and dairy branches of it for which he is the commissioner, Mr. J. A. Ruddick made some
statements on his visit to the coast
which are of the greatest interest to
British Columbia dairymen. The
cheese, butter, and allied industries,
he said, had increased to such an extraordinary extent and the amount of
money turned over to the farmers of
Canad last year was in excess of
$100,000,000.
"Since British Columbia imports
both butter and cheese by the carload
there ought to be a great field here
for dairymen," said Mr. Ruddick. "I
understand that the market is always
short in these commodities, but it is
good to know that there are plenty
of creameries already in working order on this side of the Rockies and
that these are highly successful."
Mr. Ruddick is of thc opinion that
the country in the north of the province in eminently adapted for farm
ing and that much nearer at hand
there are lots of opportunity for the
dairyman. There were, he said, large
areas  adapted for grazing.
C. N. Construction
Having lately returned from its
railway construction camp near Mission, Mr. W. J. Tierney reports that
the work is going on well on the ten
miles of road which they havc contracted to build for Mackenzie &
Mann, being a part of the main line
of the Canadian Northern. Tierney
& Company have 250 men employed
between Matsqui and the Sumas river
;*nd is expected within the next thirty
days to add to this number by another hundred. The nature of the
work is mostly cuts and it is of the
roughest possible description but in
spi*e of that and the fact that the
rain has held the work back to a certain extent it will be completed by
the first of March. It was started on

PROHIBITION
Writing of "A Side View of Prohibition," thc Portland Oregonian says:
"Another fact to bear in mind as to
liquor and prohibition is that proper
use of liquor is no more a crime or a
vice than eating sugar or beefsteak.
Tbis matter has been lost sight of by
large numbers of persons in the present prohibition wrangle in Oregon.
The moderate drinking of wine, beer,
or whisky is not a wrongful act, in
world round opinion: excessive use is
a vice (not a crime) and is guarded
against best by warning and example
and lessons of experience. Vast numbers of citizens, the world over, use
liquor soberly and properly; their example opposes the claims of prohibitionists, and they will not accept the
version of the prohibitionists that
they arc criminals or debauchers of
youth or undesirable citizens Persons
who abuse themselves and liquor hy
getting drunk sometimes "reform" and
come back to cry for prohibition;
but they are hardly paragons for
better men and women to imitate who

copy "that wise old owl, who sat in
an oak; the more he saw the less he
spoke."

Honouring the Flag
To the Editor    of    The    Over-Seas
Mail:
Sir,—I saw much of the recent
fighting at Lisbon owing to the position of my surgery and the fact that
I was detained there during Monday
and Tuesday (October 3 and 4) by
thc heavy firing that went on. 1 was
greatly impressed by thc order and
civility of thc combatants. All the
troops who passed my house, which
was protected by the Union Jack,
cheered thc flag as they marched by.
A mob of men who invaded my doorway lifted their hats and went away
when they learned that I was English.—Yours faithfully,
A. B. TUGMAN,
Dentist to the British Hospital.
Lisbon.
EDITORIAL
(Continued from Page 1)
Alverstone, Lord Chief Justice of
England. The selection and swearing of the jurors, dispatches tell
us, occupied eight minutes. Perhaps the most illuminating account
of the trial that reached this side
is given by the London correspondent of the New York Sun.
To quote in part: "Once only in
the four and a half davs did the
counsel protest at anything that
happened. This was done by counsel for the defense, who objected
to the introduction of a crown witness after the case for the crown
had been closed. The judge said:
•I will admit the evidence so far
as it is justified by the prosecuting counsel's opening statement.'
Counsel for the defense remained
standing a moment in further protest. 'L will take care of you, Mr.
Tobin,' said the judge. Counsel
bowed and took his seat. The incident occupied hardly a minute.
Not a single witness was examined
or cross-examined by counsel on
either side without the judge's intervention, sometimes requesting
counsel to make his question
clearer, sometimes helping the witness to couch his answer; always
milking every effort to save time.
It mattered nothing whether it was
a crown or defense, when counsel
had finished with him or her tlie
judge would say: 'Now I want to
ask a few questions.' Then in
three or four lucid questions he
would elicit in plain, concise form
what counsel would take twenty
minutes and innumerable questions to get out. Then the judge
would ask a few questions, always
straight to the point, which counsel had overlooked or did not de
sire put. . . . In fact, it is hardly
too much to say he was the chief
conductor of the case both for the
crown and the defense. What
little could be suggested in Crip-
pen's favour he pointed out in
summing up. What points might
be considered debatable—and they
were very few—he stated, saying
it was for the jury to decide on
them. But his whole lucid retelling of the story from the evidence
could not have been more damning had it come from the mouth of
fhe prosecuting counsel. Indeed,
its impressive delivery and its
aloofness from all personal feeling
made it far more convincing of
the prisoner's guilt than thc final
address of the prosecution to the
jury." President Taft has more
than ouce dwelt upon thc need of
reform in American methods, and
in his brother's paper, the Cincinnati Times-Star, we read : "Perhaps thc most needed reform in
this country today is thc simplification of legal procedure and the
more rapid carrying out of justice.
Society needs such a reform in
criminal cases for its own protection; in civil cases it needs it
quite as much for the protection
of the man of moderate or small
means who is unable to bear the
expense of protracted litigation."

The marriage of Miss Helen Julia
Cavanauh, daughter of the late Maj.
Cavanauh, of the 61st Gloucestershire
Regiment, and Mrs. Cavanaugh, Dublin, Ireland, to Mr. Arthur Howard
Potts of Victoria, B.C., was celebrated in Vancouver last Tuesday afternoon at the Church of Our Lady of
the Holy Rosary. The Rev. Father
Welsh, O.M., officiated. The bride
was handsomely gowned in ivory-
toned Brussels net, whicii was set off
by heavily embroidered silk roses. A
soft satin underdress adding a dainty
finish. She wore a tulle veil over a
coronet of orange blossoms and carried a bouquet of bridal roses. She
was attended by four young ladies,
Miss Jessie Nelson and the Misses
Muriel, Florence and Violet Potts. All
wore very dainty and pretty gowns.
Dr. Dolbey, Vancouver, supported the
groom. After the ceremony a wedding
breakfast was served at Glencoe lodge,
at which about thirty guests attended.
A number of Victorians went over to

Potts left for Seattle en route to San
Francisco and Colorado, whence they
will afterwards sail for Europe. They
expect to be away about six months.
The bride's going away gown was of
beaver-toned hopsacking worn with
a beautiful set of sables—the gift of
the groom. Her costume was completed by a large picture hat of brown
satin with doublure of champagne-
hued velvet, trimmed with a band of
sable and a chou of old lace.

A very smart wedding was celebrated last Wednesday afternoon at
Christ Church Cathedral, when Miss
Agnes Gertrude Savage was married
to Mr. Thomas Otto Mackay. The
church was handsomely decorated for
the occasion by the bride's friends
with quantities of wlr'te flowers and
greenery. The bride was given away
by her father, Mr. James Savage. She
wore a beautiful gown of ivory satin
duchesse, semi-princess style, with a
draped tunic caught up in front with
sprays of orange blossoms. The bodice was draped with rose point lace
studded with pearls, and a folded satin
corsage fastened at the side back with
a large pearl buckle. A fine tulle veil
was worn held in place with a coronet
of orange blossoms. The only ornaments she wore were a wrist watch
surrounded by diamonds, the gift of
thc groom and a topaz and diamond
pendant, the gift of her mother. Miss
Janet Mackay and Miss Winona
Troup made very charming bridesmaids. They wore dainty dresses of
pale blue satin with overdresses of
pale blue silk net and picture hats of
pale blue satin, draped with tulle and a
cord and tassels of silver. Miss Ross
Arbuthnot was the maid of honour
and was most becomingly dressed in
a lovely princess gown of soft pink
satin-covered with pink net, and long
pink willow plumes caught in front
with a bunch of silver roses. Mr.
Max Macgowan from Vancouver supported the groom. The bridegroom's
gift to the bridesmaids were pearl
lilly-of-the-valley brooches. The maid
of honour's gift was a white enamel
pendant set with split pearls a
rubies. The bride's mother was har
somely gowned in a pastel shade
brown chiffon velvet with handsoi

TROPICAL TRIFLES III.
(By Onlooker).
IGreat news!" I cried, bursting in-
Jthe room where my friend   Sokes was smoking the pipe of wis-
"Great  news!" The  Kaiser is
king to see you!"
"Jreater than he have sought my
lice," my friend replied.
But he needs it," I sneered.
Bo do others."
"I suppose he wants to talk about
some scheme for promoting the peace
of the world," I suggested. "They
say he is to have a prize—"
Bring forth that design of the
new indestructible Dreadnought," said
my friend. "We must show him something that will destroy its enemies but
that cannot be itself destroyed."
"The idea will appeal to him, no
doubt. We may as well keep him
in a good temper.    Here he comes."
As I spoke, our expected guest the
Kaiser walked in and saluted us. I
noticed that his brow was troubled
and that his moustachois took an unusually desperate ascent towards his
ears. "Uneasy lies the head—' thought
I.
"Goot morning," said the troubled
one. "Have I ze pleasure of meeting
Mistaire Socrates whose mout speakes
ze words of visdom?"
"I am he. What dost thou want to
know of me?" demanded my friend
with much dignity, for dignity cannot fail to make an impression.
"Veil, I scarcely know not what I
vant," replied the! Kaiser. "It, was
nozing moch, because I know it all
already. But I wanted moch to see
a kind face, for mine peebles are not
kind to me. I have given them too
moch. I give them ships, I give them
airoplanes, I give them armies, I
give them everything and still they
do not love me."
"Exactly," replied Socrates. "But,
my dear Kaiser, how is it that thou
art able to give them all these
things?"
"Got! I dere money take! I—"
"Just so. You take too much."
"Himmel! But would you have me
did? Vould you haf me all talks and
no deeds like dat little Teddy—"
"It is true what thou hast said,
deeds are better than words, and
thou hast done much. Try doing a
little less in the future."
"He seems to have done a lot of
worrying lately," I laughed; for like
all the truly great I am no respecter
of persons.
"I haf done dat," replied the Kaiser,
who took me seriously. And now I
have sent mine son away to ze far
East where he will tell of ze greatness of ze Vaterland."
"Hoch der Kaiser!" I cried. "What
a lovely time he will have," I added,
thinking of the harems of lovely
houris I had read about in books.
"Thou hast done well," said Socrates to the Kaiser. "Thou hast sent
the future ruler of thy country to
have speech with the potentates of
the East, that the Fatherland may
be known to them as the greatest
and most powerful nation of the
earth."
"That's it!" I cried. "He wants little Willie to have an innings first.
Every dog has its day, but the Chow
hasn't had his, eh what? You foxy
old dog, you!" and I slapped him on
the back.
"Ach! You haf me understand."
cried the Kaiser, trying to kiss me.
"Himmel! if I only had more of you
in mine Vaterland how moch happier I should be."
"Thou hast also a desire to improve the trade of thy country?" inquired my friend.
"Dat is what! You haf me also understand. Tink of it! Made in Germany! Dat is vat I vant to see. I
vill build more ships dis year, more
armies, everything that the money of
mine peeble vill make."
"Wow!" said I. "Poor Peebles. No
wonder they are making a kick."
"Vat you say?" demanded the Kaiser suspiciously. "Vat you say?"
"Never mind," I replied, "only as
my good friend Socrates will tell
you, it isn't any use. You can't make
anything in Germany that we can't
make."
The Kaiser looked at me a moment
and then burst into tears. "You haf
it understand," he sobbed. "It's no
use. I build ,and build, and build,
and now, by der Teufel, dat tam
Canadian navy—"
"Has arrived at Esquimalt," I
chortled.
A Copy of a Letter Written to a
Citizen of Victoria
Calgary, October llth, 1910.
DEAR SIR:—Your letter of September 23rd was presented to the
Council at its meeting last night, and I am instructed to reply thereto.
Worswick Paving Co.'s roads have proved a success in this City. The
first pavement laid by the Company was in 1908. This pavement is apparently better and firmer today than the day was laid. The conditions under
which the road was done at the time were not the most favorable. Excavations had been made on the street just previously for sewer, water
connections, etc., and consequently it was not in the most satisfactory
condition to receive the work.
The citizens generally are satisfied with this pavement, which is shown
by the fact that many petitions by property owners on various avenues
have come in this year requesting the Council to have these pavements
laid on streets and avenues fronting their property. So many petitions were
presented that it was found impossible to grant them all and a number
are waiting now for approval by the Council of next year.
The Company has laid pavements as follows:—
'-V 1908 08000 Square Yards
1909 43000 Square Yards
1910 80000 Square Yards
This pavement is laid with a 4in. concrete base, l^in. binder and l^in.
mastic wearing surface.
The City has also Bitulithic pavement, Granitoid pavement laid by the
Rudolph S. Blome Co., and Wood Block pavement.
The general opinion of the citizens is favourable to this asphalt pavement if we can judge from the petitions that are presented from them.
We have had but one petition during this year for Bitulithic.
The Granitoid is a strong pavement but very hard.
Wood Block pavements are very much more expensive.
If any further information is desired respecting this matter I will be
pleased to furnish it at your request.
I  am, yours sincerely,
(Signed) W. D. SPENCE, City Clerk.

MORE FIRE TRAPS
Information has been received by
Thc Week from one of its valued
corespondents that the late lire which
devastated Government Street, ancl
which should have been a warning
to all citizens, has apparently failed
in its purpose. Perhaps the most effective way in which we can do our
duty to the public is by quoting thc
words of our correspondent. He
says: "By thc way, havc you noticed
all these old shingle roofs since the
fire, being patched up by new wood
en shingles? What are the fire wardens doing to allow it?"
Further comment on the above remark is unnecessary; it is merely another example of the putrescent rottenness of the Council as it exists at
present with Mayor Morley at its
head.
A CONCERT

Victoria Theatre, the programme for
the same will be seen below, and any
reader of The Week who takes the

to realize that this concert is going
to be one of the treats of their lives.

and was killed, and a jagged splinter
from the wreck of the aeroplane
pierced his body. "Before doctors
or police could reach the scene one
man had torn the splinter from the
crushed ancl mangled body and run
away carrying his horrible trophy
with the aviator's blood still dripping
from its end." The rest of the crowd
fought for his gloves, etc. This souvenir hunting is nothing more or less
than hysterical madness and that such
scenes as reported above should pertain, go to prove the decadence of
humanity to seek for morbid curiosity,
such souvenirs. A year or so ago
when an English Man of War visited
New York with Prince Henry of Battenburg in command even the buttons
of his uniform were stolen for souvenirs. As these buttons were unobtainable at short notice great inconvenience was caused. When souvenir
hunting is carried to such lengths as
mutilating clothing and scrambling
over dead people it is about time it
was called by another name and steps
taken to stop this hysterical  folly.

EDUCATING HER CONSCIENCE
SOUVENIR HUNTING OR
HYSTERIA
Are we living in an age of lunatics,
of ghoulish fiends? for under one of
those types must be set, people, who,
when an aviator meets his death, rush
forward ancl seek for souvenirs before
his breath is out of his body. Ralph
Johnstone, thc latest victim, to the
conquest of   the air at   Denver fell,
"Contrary to common experience,
my conscience is more tender now
than when I first went into business,"
said a young woman who is employed
downtown. "Then T did not mind
working for any kind of a fakir. Now
1 strongly object. One of my first
jobs was for a man who was sending
out a lot of letters containing tips on
racing. One clay when I was in the
thick of the work another customer
read one of the circulars.
" 'I wonder,' he said, 'how many
poor devils will lose every cent they
have in the world by being drawn
into  this  cut-throat  scheme.'
" 'I don't know,' said I, 'and, anyway, that is not my lookout.'
" 'Then your conscience doesn't
trouble you?' he asked.
" 'Not in the least,' said I. 'It is
purely a matter of business with me.
They will have to look out for themselves the same as I do.   There is one
thing sure, I shan't lose anythii
"S o I went ahead and wrot
letters.   There were so many of
that my bill amounted to $25."
"I  wonder,"  put in  a listene
many people really did lose?"'
"I know one that did,"    said
young woman, sadly. "That was
never got my $25."-—New York
