ANAMA CANAL—The expected has
happened and the uncouth jelly fish
which an unkind fate has placed in
Presidential chair of a sister Republic
flopped, as most people thought he
uld with a Presidential election so near
hand. A much abler man than Taft
r was, Cleveland, tried to raise a little
des over the Venezuelan affair many
rs ago; although the incident is buried in
limbo of things that matter not, it has not
n forgotten and the feeble imitation of a
on the part of Taft recalls the whole
dent.    The sole effect of Cleveland's
k was to disgust all reasonable men,
ther British or American, and incident-
to low him so much in the public esti-
ion that he never afterwards figured at
The effect of Taft's dishonesty has
even more prominent,   for today he
[els discredited in the eyes of the civilised
d and condemned by the Press of his
country, as well as of England. As the
s-Advertiser very incisively put it, his
ise only makes matters worse.   In seek-
for some possible plea of justification
t remarked that as the Canal had been
|structed by the United States on its own
itory, at its own cost, it would be absurd
the nation would not control the tolls
give itself any advantage that might
lesired, yet when Taft said this he knew
. the territory did not belong to the
ted States at the time the agreement was
le.   It was secured afterwards by an
which some of Mr. Taft's own country-
|i declared to be an Act of public robbery.
re is no room for argument with re-
t to the principle involved, it was a
•pie matter of fact, that the United States
ernment secured the abrogation of the
wer-Clayton by consenting to the Hay-.
mceforte Treaty.    The  former would
e rendered it impossible for the United
.tes  to have  constructed  the   Panama
ial, the latter removed tlie embargo and
Ide it possible, the consideration to the
ole world being equality of treatment as
tolls ancl no special favours.   The legis-
on now signed by Taft is a direct ancl
iberate breach of that treaty which is
ight to be justified by the most sophistical
ument.   The only crumb of comfort in
nection with a disgraceful episode is that
the Presidential election will soon be
er, the people of the United States may
urn him for their own credit to clean
Dm   their   national   escutcheon   the   bar
Ilister with which Taft has besmirched
n and as it will be a year ancl a half here the imposition of tolls will take effect
English people can well afford to wait
ithe full assurance that nations no more
n individuals can afford to tamper with
ir personal honour.
STRIKING SIMILARITY—In its
issue of August 24th The Week-
printed   a   letter   from   a  corres-
|ndent   over   the   signature   "Property
vner."   Two replies to this letter appear
(the correspondence of the current issue,
l August 27th Sir Wilfrid Laurier at-
lded a luncheon at the Chateau Laurier
Ottawa ancl made his first utterance on
question of Naval Defence since the
_ of the last session of the House.   Dis-
mting the fact that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
s speaking on naval matters, whereas our
.respondent was writing of matters mili-
•y, there is a striking similarity to be ob-
•ved in the attitude assumed by both of
_m.   After two telling speeches delivered
Sir   Arthur   Lawley,   ex-Lieutenant-
livernor of Madras, ancl Mr. Arthur Gren-
II, Chairman of the Canadian Agency,
Id admittedly a brilliant member of the
nking workl, Sir Wilfrid rose to pooh-
oh the idea of there being a German peril,
j laid the blame for its existence on Brit-
Ii sentiment, stating that "in Great Britain
_y were always thinking of war" and con-
uled his speech with the following words:
f that is all (the fact that Germany was
seeking a place under the sun) there is
nothing to fear. There is place enough in
the sun for all. The German peril does not
exist." These are significant words ancl
coining from the lips of a man in Sir Wilfrid's position are vested with that influence which always accrues to the utterances
of a public man. When we compare them
with the words used by our correspondent
last week, who wrote, "No one will ever attack us in B. C. We don't quarrel with
anyone and if you don't quarrel, how can
you be attacked? * * * The Motherland
can look after herself. She don't bother
any about us ancl why should we bother
about her"; we have no difficulty in seeing
whence Property Owner derives his Little
Englander ideas. Terrible as war is under
modern conditions and much as the civilized
world would deprecate its outbreak between
two such Powers as England ancl Germany,
the fact remains that war is still the final
arbitrament, ancl that it is the ultimate goal
toward which the two nations are driving.
When the die is cast ancl the clogs of war
are loosed the world will stand aghast at the
catastrophe ancl future generations will ask
weakness and profit thereby; to correct
breeders of stock if, mayhap, they are on
the wrong track, having, perhaps, set up
faulty standards; to bring the manufacturers and merchants in closer touch
through friendly competition, ancl, above all,
to give the general public an insight into
the possibilities of the land in which they
live. To inspire the children with enthusiasm ancl, also, to give them a pleasant
outing, the Exhibition Directors have decided that they shall be admitted free of
charge on Friday, the 27th of the month.
We desire to congratulate them on this far-
sighted move. We wish, also, to draw attention to the fact that the work of paving
and double-track the lower part of Cadboro
Bay Road has been pushed ahead so rapidly
that the Association has been assured that
the tramway service to the fair grounds,
while the show is in progress, will be the
best that has ever been given. Victorians,
therefore, will have no excuse to stay away.
Those who have given as a reason for their
lukewarm support in the past—the inconvenience of reaching the scene—are to be
robbed of this  always  very shaky  reed.
Australia's Daily Message
Australia's share in defence of thc Empire for 1012-13 amounts to about
£5,500,000. This will make a total of about £13,000,000 expended in defence in
three years by King George's four and a half million subjects iri'Australia,
themselves why peaceful methods could not
prevail. The fact remains, however, that
the only means by which war can be averted
is by increased vigilance in the times of
peace, ancl the Little England policy outlined by Property Owner and the late Premier will prove the surest road to that international disaster whicii they so strongly deprecate. The ostrich of the desert is not
more blind than are these "peace at any
price" advocates. Like the false prophets
of old they pay no heed to the signs of the
times. To them the almost daily paragraphs
whicii appear in European papers detailing
the arrest of spies, real or fancied, convey no warning. Of such it was that the
fiery prophet, Ezekiel, wrote: "They have
seduced my people, saying, "Peace, ancl
there was no peace."
This class is reminded of the spirit recently
displayed at Vancouver. There the exhibition had the misfortune to be marked by
several days of rain and yet Vancouverites
turned out "en masse." Fifteen thousand
attended on one day, and it was not one
of those bright Autumn days so common in
this city. ' The making or the marring of
their Exhibition lies with the people.
PROVINCIAL EXHIBITION—Once
more active preparations are under
way for Victoria's annual Exhibition,
the five clays selected being September 24th
to 28th inclusive. This is a little later than
last year's show wdiich is an advantage in
all respects save one. It means that the
agricultural ancl horticultural departments
will afford more complete illustrations of
the incomparable resources of British Columbia, ancl more particularly Vancouver
Island. We are assured by Dr. Tolmie,
the president, ancl Mr. George Sangster,
the secretary, of the B. C. Agricultural Association, that it is to be a real old-time
Exhibition, the produce of the farm and the
blue-blooded product of the stock ranches
predominating. With a splendid variety of
entertainment, not the least important of
which are the horse races and the horse
show, The Week feels safe in predicting
success. The one disadvantage is the increased risk of inclement weather. If J.
Pluvius happens to be in a cheery frame of
mind, and the public accords its patronage
generously, the Association will come out
with colours flying. More than ever before
the management is determined to emphasize
the educational aspect of the show. It is
the desire to make abundantly clear that the
Exhibition, while largely an entertainment,
is not purely a circus. The object is to
bring the agriculturists together in competition that they may learn their strength ancl
SUFFRAGITIS — The militant Suffragettes of Great Britain continue
their aggressive campaign. Not content with attempted arson ancl malicious
personal injury, they have lately resorted to
intimidation, lt is satisfactory to note,
however, that in Air. Borden they have
met their Waterloo. With an audacity
worthy of a better cause they approached
the Canadian Premier for the purpose of
ascertaining his views at first hand. In this
interview they displayed an abysmal ignorance of the first principles of constitutional
government as obtaining in the Dominion.
Chagrined by Mr. Borden's intimation that
he had no power to introduce a general
measure of suffrage for women in the
Dominion of Canada, their spokeswoman,
.Miss Barrett, descended into the arena of
threats and intimidation. She made no
bones about the policy of the Women's
Social and Political Union. She wanted a
"quid pro quo." In return for the services
of the Union in promoting emigration from
England to Canada she wanted the Premier's pledge that he would introduce a
Women's Suffrage Measure. "Otherwise,"
she said, "we shall consider a campaign to
advise intending emigrants to go to Australia and New Zealand rather than to
Canada." The Week, in company with
every other paper printed in the Dominion
whicii has the best interests of the country
at heart, is naturally loath to see goocl
emigration going astray, but the question
arises whether, after all, the class of emigrant, who would be influenced by the
Women's Social ancl Political Union, would
not confer a benefit on the Dominion by
choosing Australasia as its habitat. It
might be a kindness to point out to the
militant Suffragette that she had better consider well before opening a campaign in
Canada; it is just possible that the Attor
neys-General of the Dominion may not possess hearts as soft as .those which have been
beating in the breasts of English Home
Secretaries of late, and "hunger strikes"
might not produce the result desired by
their fair devotees.
A PACIFIC HENLEY—In an illuminating address delivered in the Empress Hotel on the occasion of the
farewell smoker given in honour of the
members of the "Flying Legion," Mr. W.
L. Hathaway, the manager of the Mutual
Fire Insurance Company, made a suggestion well worthy of consideration by all who
are interested in the future prosperity of
Victoria. In a graceful speech expressing
the thanks of the visitors Mr. Hathaway
said: "Organize at once a movement for
"some unique annual event of one week
"during the summer months—something of
"a water nature. Call it, for instance, the
"Victoria Regatta, build boathouses, or turn
"your old sealing fleet into such, line the
"banks of this four miles of beautiful
"waters forming the upper part of Vic-
"toria harbour with a floating city; make
"it a second Henley week." This is a
most valuable suggestion ancl Victorians are
under an obligation to the courteous gentleman who made it. Everyone who has a
drop of British blood running through his
veins realizes what Henley is to the Old
Countryman. Victoria is even more happily
situate for an annual event of this nature
than is Henley itself. Here on the Pacific
Slope we are blessed with an almost unbroken summer of fine weather; to use a
colloquialism, we can "bank on" fine
weather with a greater degree of certainty
than can the Old Country. Wc have the
climate; we have the water; wc have the
scenery, ancl we have the men. The Week
has every pleasure in endorsing this suggestion of Mr. Hathaway's and trusts that
the various athletic associations of the city
will take it up in all seriousness. Victoria
has already an enviable title as an athletic
centre; the addition of an annual "Henley"
to its charms would prove an advertising
medium of no mean value and greatly enhance the popularity which the Capital already enjoys.
PRISON FARM—Much water has
flown under the bridges since Charles
Reade wrote his famous novel "Never
too Late to Mend," and in no direction iina
civilization been better justified of its being than in thc improvements which havi*
been effected throughout the length and
breadth of the dominions -ontrolled by the
English speaking race in the matter of
prison reform. Thc modern tendency is to
look upon the criminal more as the victim
of ai unkind fate and of temperamental
disabilities than as a wild beast to be tamed.
Juvenile courts have sprung up in every
populated centre. The name of Ben Lindsay will go down to posterity as the name
of one who has done much lo elevate the
ideals of the abused "street Arab," and
here in British Columbia we see thc benign
workings of the same spirit of mercy and
common-sense. On Monday next the
prison farm at Burnaby will be put into
commission and twenty-five short-term prisoners from Kamloops will be sent there to
complete their sentences. Under the war-
denship of Mr. William G. McMynn, late
Government agent at Golden, the Burnaby
prison farm will commence its work of
weaning prisoners from the paths of vice
and, by granting them the privilege of open-
air work, will give them the opportunity of
gaining the physical ancl moral benefits
which a close contact with Nature is bound
to afford. To the Hon. W. J. Bowser is
due the credit for the establishment of this
farm. For long it has been his desire to
give the weak-minded offenders of the community a chance to redeem themselves, and
thc prison farm at Burnaby is the outcome
of his cogitations. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1912
There is a story, I believe, not unconnected with the discoverer of this
glorious  continent, whicii  deals with
the ease with which an egg may be
made  to  stand  securely  on  its own
foundation.     Another   tale,   which   I
have  remembered  from  the  clays  of
my youth, shows how even  so brilliant a scientist as Sir Isaac Newton
thought that it was necessary to make
two holes in thc wall of his study, one
for  t'he   cat   and  the   other   for  the
kitten.    I make mention of these two
hackneyed    yarns    to    remind     my
readers* how easy it is for even the
greatest men to overlook the simplest
solution to a difficulty.   Even I, who
would fain pose as the fore-runner of
the  Utopian  age and  therefore earn
my daily bread and butter' by exposing abuses, have for long been nonplussed  by  one  of these  same  little
difficulties,  and  it  was   not  till   last
Sunday  that the   solution   was   suggested to me by a friend*.   My readers
must often have noticed that the edge
of the Empress Hotel lawn, where it
borders on t'he Causeway, is ragged
in the extreme.    This fact has often
hurt my sensitive spirit, but as I fully
realized  the   difficulty   of   cutting  it,
owing to the proximity of the wooden
border,    I  refrained   from   criticism.
To find fault without making at the
same time a suggestion for.improvement  is  a  poor  policy.    Now,  however, I invite the courteous manager
to consider the advisability of planting dwarf ivy all round the borders,
as has been done with  such  success
in   the   grounds   of   the   Provincial
Buildings.   This would give a finished
effect and greatly enhance the beauty
of the grounds.
* *   *
During the past few months a building containing suites of comfortable
flats has been erected at the corner
of Niagara and Menzies Streets. This
is as it should be, for it will be a long
time before Victoria will have a superfluity of such convenient dwelling-
places. It has not, however, yet
occurred to the motorneers of the B.
C. E. R. that this building now obstructs the view of anyone driving
round the corner, and that therefore
it is incumbent on them to ring their
bell loudly when approaching it. This
is a particularly dangerous corner at
the best of times; the space between
the car-line and the north-east corner is narrow in the extreme and
some day there will probably be a bad
accident. The arrival of this day will
be considerably hastened if motorneers persist in coming down Niagara
Street and rounding t'he corner on
their journey into town without giving due warning of their approach.
Last Friday night 1 was the guest of
one of my millionaire friends in his
recently purchased automobile, and
he was making the turn from Menzies
into Niagara. He "tooted" his horn
with all due care, and he was driving
well within the speed limit. Even
at that, however, we had a narrow
escape from running into t'he town-
ward-bound car, which failed to
sound its bell. On Tuesday an acquaintance stopped me on Government Street with a tale similar in
every detail. I would respectfully
call the attention of the management
of the Company to this point, which
has only become an issue of importance since the completion of the flats
referred to above.
* *   *
I have just been enjoying a conversation with thc Optimist. The Optimist is a person whose horizon is
bounded by clear skies and who never
sees a cloud. His name, by the way,
is Johnston, and he is a member of
the real estate firm of Moore &
Johnston, Yates Street. I always like
a chat with Mr. Johnston just because of this optimistic trait of his
Today he was laughing to scorn the
idea that people in Victoria were
slow. "Slow," he said; "not a bit of
it. See how they snapped up those
lots of ours at Stamford Park! All
Victoria money, too, almost all of it,
at any rate." lt really is rather wonderful, the way in which these same
Victorians are content to be called
"slow" while all the time they are on
Lhe "qui vive"' for every opportunity
that comes along. Mr. Johnston told
mc that he still had a few lots left,
but that the big majority had been
taken up by well to do residents of
the city.
*   *   *
1 would like to call the attention of
the proper officials to the embryonic
state of some of the boulevards which
at present desecrate our city, and I
cannot find a better example of what
I mean than the Dallas Road, as it
appears to the casual observer. After many months of weary waiting
the Dallas Road was paved and presents an unrivalled appearance from
the Dallas Hotel to Beacon Hill. I
am not prepared to discuss the roadway beyond the Hill, as it is a long
time since I have been out as far.
On each side of the roadway, however, where the boulevards should be,
are unsightly mounds of earth overgrown with noxious weeds and marring the beauty of the scene. An unprejudiced person may be pardoned
for expressing the opinion that when
this earth was originally piled up at
the sides, it would have cost but a
little more labour to level it and to
cart away what was superfluous.
There are other streets to which the
same criticism apples, but the Dallas
Road is the most conspicuous.
* *   *
In a recent interview granted to a
representative of the Colonist Mr. E.
J. Chamberlin, President of the G. T.
P., poured forth a lament with respect
to the lack of labour available for the
construction work on the line of his
railway, ft would appear from a recent exchange that Prince Rupert itself, the city which owes its birth to
the same corporation, is suffering
from a dearth of a certain class of
labour. "Thc Weekly Empire" of
August 21st published the woes of the
local branch of the Daughters of the
Empire. These patriotic ladies, who
in every section of the Dominion arc
foremost in undertaking public duties
and have gained for themselves an enviable reputation for public spirit,
were desirous of giving a luncheon
in thc honour of the Royal party
when the Governor-General and his
family reach Prince Rupert. They
complain, however, that they are
foiled in their laudable endeavour owing to the fact that they are unable
to secure a suitable place in which
to give the banquet, or waiters to
serve it. Is it possible that the clan
of waiters, whose name used to be
Legion, is really disappearing from off
thc face of thc earth, or is it that
Prince Rupert has been put under a
ban by the Knights of the Napkin?
Prince Rupert has been advertised
North, South, East and West as the
coming metropolis of Northern British Columbia, but it will have to look-
to its laurels if "a difficulty in providing competent waiters" is to be
encountered. Such slaves are we to
our appetites.
* *   *
Two happenings of recent date fill
my heart with joy. First of all it
was thc utterance of Alderman Beard
to the effect that before we spent
money, of which I understand the
City is somewhat short, on decorating the sea-wall at Ross Bay, wf
should see to it that thc sewers wcre
in working order. Ornamental parapets will not keep away typhoid fever
and more people are likely to die of
that complaint than are likely to fall
olf the sea-wall. Of two evils it is
better to choose the lesser, according
to the best authorities. Secondly, I
rejoiced   to   sec   that   the   clock,   of
which I wrote some little time ago, is
in active process of being erected outside the store of Mr. W. H. Wilkerson on Government Street. By the
time that these lines appear, it is probable that my readers will be setting
their watches by the new time-piece
and calling down the blessings of
Heaven on Mr. Wilkerson, in thus
fulfilling the pious hopes of the
qCi
O^H-tst*.
IX. B.—For the benefit of those
readers of The Week who lack the
saving sense of humour. the
"Lounger" wishes us to point out that
the words "Even I" in the 17th line
of the first paragraph of his article
are meant to be a joke. He says that
they are a "humorous egotism,"
whatever that may mean.    Ed. Week.]

Why People Stay
at one place in preference to another is
sometimes hard to find out. Many considerations enter into the individual decision.
Refined surroundings, artistic furnishings,
good cooking, quiet, able management,
cleanliness,—these are some of the most
obvious reasons for choosing a residence
either for a few days or an extended stay.
All of these are found at Mrs. Gordon's

Young   Wife."   This    should
a good vehicle for the versatile
Its of the Williams Players and
will doubtless add fresh laurels to
those they have already won.
The Empress Theatre
The best offering in this week's bill
of fare at the Empress is the Shakespearean travesty, "Kid Hamlet," presented by J. Albert Hall & Company
There is something humorous in the
introduction of modern American
slang into Shakespearean drama, and
the pathetic attempts of Hamlet to
get his soliloquy "off his chest" are
most amusing. Bud & Nellie Heim
are not strangers to Victoria vaudeville patrons and they are just as
comic a couple now as when they last
visited the Capital. James Reynolds
is a monologuist, but he can hardly
be described "A Jovial Humourist";
■he is just sufficiently funny. The
musical contribution by "Kretore" is
good.
The Crystal Theatre
The management of the Crystal
Theatre are to be congratulated on
having secured such excellent vaudeville as the two turns which appeared
on their stage during the first three
days of the current week. Harry
Ding, the Chinese basso, met with a
great success here and he well deserved it. Holland & Holland, in a
comedy sketch entitled "Twixt Matinee and Night," also scored heavily.
These two acts were probably the
best that have appeared in the Crystal since the introduction of vaudeville was undertaken, and being
accompanied by excellent pictures
fully bore out the claim that at the
Broad Street house you get many
times your money's worth.
The Majestic Theatre
"Conscience, or The Chamber of
Horrors," as a title, has rather a sinister ring about it, and the drama unfolded at the Majestic Theatre this
week fully bore out the suggestion it
conveys. There was a subtle artistry
in bringing about a meeting between
the deserted wife and her husband in
the vaults of a waxwork show, and
the workings of a guilty conscience
on a villain were finely portrayed,
Romano's Theatre
"A fine line of pictures and a jolly
comfortable place to see them in" was
a remark overhead this week by the
writer as hc emerged from Romano's
on Government Street. And really
the sentiments expressed by the tourist, for such he appeared to be, so exactly fitted in with the eavesdropper's
opinion that they may be quoted in
place of a discussion on the merits
of any special film.
The Victoria Theatre
The Allen Players are bringing
their summer stock season to an end,
next week being the last of their season. The company wil! appear for
seven more nights including tonight
and two matinees, one today and one
the following Saturday.
The final production the players
will appear for seven more nights including tonight and two matinees, one
today and one the following Saturday.
The final production the players
will offer at the Victoria Theatre is
the well known American drama, entitled "The Girl from Texas." Tllis
play has been a great success, it being a strong virile drama with a captivating theme.
Miss   Verna   Felton,   whose   popu
larity in Victoria has increased great
ly this summer, will play the lead
next week, in which she has appeared
with great success elsewhere.
After finishing their season here the
Allen Players will leave for a short
season at Prince Rupert.
TINNER SALMON
At the river o; Frf.ser, a long way away, sir,
They catch tons of salmon, you'll grant;
They've an excellent plan—they eat all they
can,
And afterwards can all they can't.
But you'll get in a mix and a horrible fix
If you try to explain to your aunt
That though they can't eat all the salmon they
can,
They can eat the salmon they can't.

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
Black
Monday
By Bohemian
"•Black Monday," black as its school-room ink,
With its dismal  boys, that snivel  and  tliink,
With ils nauseous messes to cat and drink
And its frozen tanks to wash in.
—Hab Ballads.
There is a legend in the annals of
the British race, and for all I know,
in the annals of every race which has
been in existence from the time that
the first child went to school, that
there are three Mondays in the year
which are distinguished by the
funereal cognomen of "Black." The
tradition is kept up at the present day
religiously by parents and members
of thc Fourth Estate who feel in duty
bound to refer to the day on which
school re-opens, as though the portals of each and every institution for
the instruction of the young, were in
very truth the gates of hell emblazoned above with the awe-inspiring
legend,
"Abandon hope, all ye who enter here."
I find it hard to see why the custom
of regarding school as the place of
torment for children should be so
rigidly maintained, and yet the seeker
after truth must admit that "grownups," the men and women whom Kenneth Graham styles "The Olympians,"
persist in referring to it in the hearing of their sons and daughters as
though it were at best a place for
purgatorial  penance.
Consider the facetious reporter.
With the close of the summer vacation and the general dearth of news
prevalent at that time, he allows his
memory to run riot through the un-
happiest hours of his own school
career, and with the recollection of
sundry floggings, impositions and
similar trials, blithely writes of
"Black" Monday and discourses at
length on the sombre faces and unhappy thoughts of the children in his
community.
Notice the attitude of the average
parent at the same season of the year.
As the holidays draw nearer to a
close, special favours are showered on
the children and, like missionaries undergoing the fattening process before
the tribal banquet, they are indulged
and petted in view of the "lean days"
that are so soon to be theirs.
Listen to the conversation of the
said "Olympians" when their offspring arc in the room, and you will
hear sundry references to the unfortunate lot of poor Tommy, Dicky, or
Marry. "Poor boy," they say, "this is
the last day of 'his holidays, and next
term he has got to work so hard—
haven't you, dear?" Whereupon the
youthful victim, struggling not to
laugh, remembers the best traditions
of his clan, whicii involve the successful exploitation of his elders, and,
with a quivering lip, tries to look as
though manliness alone restrained his
tears, albeit inwardly wondering
whether his acting will produce a
"quarter."
Whatever conditions may have
lieen in the dim and distant past, I
refuse to believe that the normal
child dislikes the re-opening of school.
The unhappy urchin at "Dotheboys
Hall" and similar establishments may
have had good reason to dread
"Black" Monday, but in these enlightened days the colour of the day
has surely changed. It is probably
true that boys and girls will never
realize that school-time is play-time
and that their happiest hours are
spent during their school period; it is
certainly true that no boy, at any
rate, would ever so far fall short of
the unwritten law which has held
good ever since Cain and Abel first
underwent parental  discipline,  as  to
admit it.
It is t'he immutable law of custom,
which, like the laws of the Medes
and Persians, may not be broken, that
fixes the colour of the three Mondays, and each succeeding generation,
as it emerges from the bonds of
school discipline, tends to dye the
colour faster. The insufferable conceits, as they appear to the younger
members of a family, and the little
airs of superiority assumed by those
who have finished their course, fill the
school-boy and the school-girl with
a sense of their degradation and promote the forced feeling that they are
indeed the victims of a monstrous
conspiracy. It is not always easy for
them to remember the correct pose,
and on occasion and in unguarded
moments a spirit of enthusiasm for
school life will sometimes be evident.
But for the most part they guard well
the citadel of their thoughts and carry
on the sacred traditions so aptly
phrased in the verse of the late Sir
W. S. Gilbert quoted at the head of
this article.
The Cricket Tournament
(Post-scriptum)
When I wrote last week on Cricket
matters I laboured under the disadvantage of writing while the Tournament was still in progress. It is rarely safe to do this and the sequel
shows that I was unwise in two important particulars at least. On
Thursday, while my notes were being
penned, A. T. R. Martin had not made
his magnificent 143 against the Burrards and so placed his team in the
final. Neither had Capt. Lou York,
despite his badly maimed hand, taken
6 good wickets in the same match
and scored 46. It is not too much
to say that well as many of their
team-mates did these two men carried
Victoria into the final. A pluckier
display than that of Lou York's has
never been seen on a cricket ground
and only those who know how badly
he was injured can appreciate the
effort. Martin has again demonstrated
that he is a great batsman, equally
good in attack and defense, and possessing that marvellous patience
whicii is so indispensable in a crisis.
Since writing thc above I have received brief news of the result of the
Final, whicii certainly furnish ground
for the highest gratification to Victoria cricketers. Indeed, I am quite
sure that the vanquished team can
join in the gratification whicii all
good sportsmen feel at a first class
display. Not in the annals of the B. C.
Tournament has the final match been
won in such decisive fashion. That
two batsmen should knock up a score
big enough to defeat Vancouver, is
indeed beyond the realm of expectation, and once more demonstrates the
glorious uncertainty of Cricket. Too
much praise cannot be given to Martin ancl J. H. Gillespie for their
splendid performance. Martin surpassed himself, he has not been in
the best of form during the earlier
part of the season, but at the crucial
moment he rose to the occasion and
at Beacon Hill on Saturday and at the
Jubilee Grounds on Monday he demonstrated that he is the soundest
and most scientific batsmen in British
Columbia. His partner, Hebden Gillespie, has many a time shown what
a good cricketer and rapid scorer he
is, and he did so once again on Monday. A fair comment on the whole
tournament is, that Victoria has a
batting team, probably second to no
team in Canada and I believe the
Vancouver cricketers should be the
first to admit this. They put up quite an
average score in their 181 for the first
innings, a score whicii would have
won the match at almost during any
time during recent years, but the Victoria batsmen rose above their usual
tournament form and on a perfect
wicket had no difficulty in doing almost as they pleased with bowling
which was far less effective than in
the early stages of the tournament
when the pitch was a little softer and
helped the bowlers.   As  I  have  not
access to the details of the score I
cannot do justice to the other members of the Victoria team, some of
whom must have scored heavily to
carry the total to such a stupendous
figure, but they must take the will
for the deed.

Reminiscences of
Royalty
Written Specially for The Week
hy Gilbert Malcolm Sproat
Many of your readers remember the
visit, to this province, of Governor-
General the Marquis of Lome (now
Duke of Argyll) and his wife, the
Princess Louise, sister of the late
King Edward. They made themselves agreeable and enjoyed their
trip, the Princess, who is a good
artist, filling her sketch-book with
Victoria scenes. An old gentleman,
Mr. Pritchard, becoming ill at a function, was visited by her in his room
with kind inquiries and advice, which
so surprised the sufferer, that all he
could ejaculate, was "God bless your
great mother!"
I was told by a very experienced
Ottawa official of the party that the
Marquis was very much liked in the
"office" there, not a bit of "side" and
always the same. A common story in
the Old Country was, that, though
heir to the ancient Scotch Dukedom
of Argyll, Lome was not accepted,
graciously, as one of the family, by
his royal brothers-in-law. The appointment to Canada was intended to
relieve a difficult situation. On the
other hand, an old Campbell clans-
woman thought, for her part, that the
Queen should be a "proud woman"
on learning that her daughter was to
marry the son of Mac-Callum-More!
Lome, on returning to the Old Country, hoped to succeed Lord Ripon as
Viceroy of India, but realised that
there were political objections to the
appointment. Gradually, the sense of
novelty and strangeness experienced
in being the Queen's son-in-law, wore
off, and he developed an independence of character, following generally
the bent of his excellent inclinations
and studious tastes. The overshadowing repute of his father—famous Duke
of Argyll—did not prevent him from
seeking, and winning, considerable
poetic and dramatic success. Both as
Marquis (and after his succession as
Duke) Lome, also, has helped to
elucidate several obscure historical
Scottish questions. But what have
specially marked his career, as a
whole—unique testimony to great
qualities in a high social station—are
t'he self-control and good judgment
shown in ordering his activities in
the difficult position in which circumstances placed him, aided, therein, by
his admirable wife.
The two royalties most attractiv*e
to me in youthhood, were the Duke
of Cambridge—Queeu Victoria's cousin, and head of the army—and the
Princess Mary of Cambridge, present
Queen's mother, who married Prince
Teck, and settled, for a time, in Florence. The Duke of Cambridge had
something of the English skipper in
appearance and frankness, and in fact,
something, too, of the Prussian
martinet. He was a man of strong
feelings and partialities, just indeed
by principle, yet liable to be unjust
through prejudice, honestly anxious
to do the right thing, yet frequently
doing the wrong. A jovial optimist,
I class him, with the facility of his
family for details, acquiescing in certain larger matters which he cordially
detested because the constitution demanded it. He had rather an exaggerated fear of printed public opinion,
but, on the whole, was a favourable
specimen of the House of Hanover
and also a good specimen of a man.
He looked very jolly on horseback
chatting and joking with his attendant?.
But it was the Princess Mary of
Cambridge who was my delight. I
went, habitually, to tlle theatre in
London to see her, and hardly ever
looked at the stage when she was in
the house—her sweet character in her
face—the  type   of  a   comely,  kindly
woman. England, it seemed to me,
was poorer, when she married and
went to reside in Italy. Prince Teck,
her husband, was a handsome man of
good presence, and really a good fellow, but, socially, it cannot be said
he was a success in England. The
English are peculiar, and he seems
to have rubbed up the most fastidious
and sensitive portion of society the
wrong way. I suppose he lacked the
shy repose whicii English taste demands, and perhaps, paraded his real,
or imaginary, grievances too much.
Lome avoided all that, and, as above
said, made the best of the situation.
One of the best specimens of our
royal family, in comparatively modern
times, is our present Governor-General, the Duke of Connaught, It was
usually supposed, in a by-gone time,
that the position which the Duke of
Cambridge occupied, as commander in
chief, was reserved for Connaught,
but a change, in public policy on this
matter, supervened; nevertheless,
Connaught, with the thoroughness
and courage of his race, set himself
to learn the duties of soldiering, practically. He went through the curriculum as a cadet at Woolich, afterwards serving for a time at Montreal.
It was not his fault that he encountered no alarming amount of peril in
Egypt. In India, his military labour
was unremitting. It is generally believed that, if free in active service,
now, 'he would prove himself to be an
able tactician. On minor matters,
naturally, he shared his brother, the
late King Edward's, devotion for the
minutifl? of uniform—a family inheritance. I have heard it said there was
no better judge of a "march past"
than Queen Victoria. The late King,
also, had a quick eye for buttons,
epaulettes and sword belts. Connaught himself insists, upon occasion,
on military smartness. His face, with
its bronzed complexion, well shaved
chin, and heavy moustache, is that,
for the most part, typical of the English, or the German, officer. He is
singularly modest and unaffected,
anxious, even now, to learn, ancl,
when he thinks he has mastered his
lesson, but not before, he is confident. All through his career our cHst
tinguished friend has committed the
minimum of mistakes permissible to
a prince, ancl he may be regarded as
a valuable civil and military asset of
the nation, whate'er betides.
Imperial Dilemmas
in the Field of
Politics
Written for The Week hy C. B. S.
Public opinion is a powerful Chief
Justice and the most competent ancl
honest one within reach of the human
race. Under whatever guise or name
it may work it becomes the impartial
law of the land, ancl, given sufficient
time to work, is bound to make its
presence felt and also the weight of
its authority.
The Australian Commonwealth is
controlled mostly by its labour party;
New Zealand admits female franchise;
in Canada and Soutii Africa race prejudices, French ancl Dutch, enter
largely into local affairs. In spite of
all these local differences, however, it
is indeed gratifying to find that on
Imperial matters all seem to be of one
mind and in complete agreement
with the Mother Country. That the
Mother Country realizes this ancl
acknowledges the necessity of harmonious combination for the very existence of the Empire is proved by
recent speeches at the Colonial Institute in London.
A close study of the drift of things
during the* last quarter of a century
brings to light two important facts:—
1. The uniformity produced* in the
minds of the people by compulsory
education.
2. The big part played by the public press in bringing about this
unison. "Similarity of thought is the
Great Unifier of people." It would
appear that we are dawning on a new
era of:—
"Then none were (or a party and all were
for the State."
The good old parish pump gets
rusty, just as it always did, ancl much
local grumbling   still    goes    on, but
somehow the Imperial reservoir
on too and is always ready to >1
the necessary supply of good wi|
Yes we muddle through somehoti
is all very true, but when we ar«
of one mind we run the dangei
forming ourselves into that fatalj

In  the role of the onlooker
sees most of the game) the press
take up the place  of the opposl
which  it has  so  effectually disq
and must in time kill.    By expel
cases where existing laws and re I
tions fail,  and,  where  possible, \

The press can bring about propel
derstandings   between   the  empl

disagreements   and   all   other
ranees to good trade.   There is|
ty of good work for the press
without resorting to  that systJ
mutual recrimination of the opl
party, which can do no good ana
results  in  the loss  of valuable!
as well as temper.    If the prea

CANADA AND THE PANAMA CANAL
(By Fred. W. Field)
Savings in Distances
The steaming time between New York and San Francisco (includ-
a half day for passing the Canal and another half day for coaling
lthe isthmus) will be about twenty-three days for 10-knot ships and
lieteen days for 12-knot vessels.   The present time taken by the rail-
ads for moving carload freight from the Atlantic to the Pacific
aboard is about three weeks; thus freight vessels will have approxi-
Itely the same schedule as freight cars.   Fifteen-knot vessels will
like the run between New York and San Francisco in fifteen or
tteen days, including a day for detention and coaling at the isthmus,
assels with a speed of 15 knots are of the passenger rather than the
eight class, and will probably not be operated in large numbers.   The
Ily considerable passenger traffic between the two seaboards will
Insist of immigrants westbound and of excursionists in both direc-
pns.   The Panama Canal is to be regarded as a coastwise highway
|r freight rather than for passengers.
Savings in Distances—To make more clear the likely effects of the
linal we may examine the question of distances.   The following savins will be effected for those ships using the new route.   This table
lis specially prepared for The Monetary Times by the naval hydro-
aphic office of the United States government:—

apl 20 S oct 26 THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1912
The distance saved in sailing from Montreal, New York ancl Liverpool, via the Panama Canal, to ports northward of Panama will be
approximately the same, and to ports northward of San Francisco the
distances saved will be identical.
The opening of the Canal will place Vancouver nearer to Liverpool by 5,664 iniles, a gain of about three weeks' steaming. A vessel
from New York to Eastern Canada centres would save 7,871 miles by
the Panama Canal, or a month's steaming. American Atlantic ports
will be brought much nearer the Orient.
United States Ports and London—New Orleans will also be placed
nearer to most of those ports than is London, the commercial centre
of the principal rival in the Oriental trade. The steamship distance
from London via the Suez Canal to Yokohama, as given by an accepted
authority, is 11,245 miles, against the distance from New Orleans via
the Panama Canal to Yokohama, 9,268 miles; London to Shanghai,
10650 miles; New Orleans to Shanghai, 10,254 miles; London to
Melbourne, Australia, 11,250 miles; New Orleans to Melbourne, 9,427
miles; London to Wellington, New Zealand, 12,615 miles; New
Orleans to Wellington, 7,939 miles, thus placing New Orleans 396 miles
nearer to Shanghai, 1,723 miles nearer to Melbourne, 1,977 miles nearer
to Yokohama and 4,676 miles nearer to Wellington, New Zealand, than
is the chief commercial centre of the United States' chief rival in the
Oriental trade, London, England.
Distance and Probable Effects—New York will have an advantage
of 2,500 miles and New Orleans 3,500 miles over Great Britain and
Europe in reaching the west coast of North and Soutii America. It is
difficult to predict the effect of the Canal upon freight traffic between
Europe and Valparaiso, the Cape Horn route being only 2,100 miles
longer than the Canal, route. Passenger ships probably will pass
through the Canal, serving the east coast of Soutii America by means
of auxiliary ships sailing from West Indian ports. Trade between
Europe and Japan will not be influenced by the Canal, as the Panama
route will be 1,000 miles longer than the one now followed. From
New York to Shanghai, on the other hand, the difference in favor of
the Canal will be 1,400 sea miles. The present route from Europe to
Australia is 800 miles longer than the route via the Canal, which is
scarcely enough t > effect any great change. It is assumed that a part of
the business from New Zealand to Europe, which today comes via
Cape Horn, will pass through the Canal hereafter, saving 1,600 sea
miles. The Canal route will be selected also by passengers who wish
to avoid the rounding of Cape Horn. The chief part of the steadily
increasing business between New York and Australia and New Zealand
should, therefore, proceed via the Canal rather than by the Cape of
Good Hope, saving 2,300 sea miles. The probable changes in navigation routes will create equally great changes in the distribution of the
coal trade, for which English firms have made preparations already.
It is stated that English firms are now making arrangements to open
coaling stations at Nukulofa, the capital of the Friendly Islands, and
upon Pitcairn Island.
British Columbia's View—An unusually interesting birdseye view
of some of the bearings of the Panama Canal was given by Mr. F. B.
Vrooman, B.Sc. (Oxon.), Ph.D., a well-known British Columbian, in
an address given in London early this year. "Draw your lines," he
said, "from New York to Valparaiso; from Victoria to New York;
from Liverpool to Yokohama. Make Panama the hub of your commercial wheel. Number the trade routes which centre there to diverge
again. You will see at a glance that not only is a new day dawning
for Central America and for the north of South, and for the west coast
of North America, but for some far-away lands as well. You will see
new trade routes whicii the logic of events will lay out where never
before they had been possible. Here is a brand-new ocean waterway
to be. It will bring the Hudson and the Mississippi, the Orinoco and
the Amazon but little more than a possible week's sail from the Pacific
Ocean; and it will bring the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea,
with their many seaports ancl with their vast resources, within a few
clays of it. The mouth of the Mississippi (ancl that means an increasing share of the trade from the largest, ancl, economically, most important single area in the world—the great interior plain of North
America in both the United States ancl Canada) will for purposes of
commerce be brought 581 miles nearer Valparaiso, Shanghai ancl Vancouver, Sydney and Wellington, Melbourne ancl Honolulu. Jamaico
ancl the British Possessions of the West Indies will be thrown across
the very highways of world commerce ancl world progress. The whole
shipping from Boston ancl New York to British Columbian ports will
be shortened by 8,415 miles; from Victoria to Liverpool by 6,046 miles.
At tbe present time British Columbian vessels sail but little farther
going to Liverpool than to New York, because they must sail round the
easternmost point of Brazil, Pernambuco, whicii is almost equidistant
from these two ports on either side the Atlantic."

SAULT CANALS' FREIGHT TRAFFIC
The freight traffic through Sault canals for a single month passed
the 10,000,000-ton mark last month for the first time, the total for the
month being 10,747,159 tons. The next largest month was July, 1910,
when the traffic totalled 8,975,173 tons. Last month's total equalled
that for the entire season of 1893.

ROTECTION     AGAINST
PHOID FEVER
TY-
r
Provincial Board of Health,
August 24th, 1912.
Editor of The Week:
Dwing to  the   prevalence   of  Ty-
d   Fever  in   many  parts   of  the
minion of Canada, the attention of
eneral public is called to the pro-
tion afforded to this disease by the
dilation of Typhoid Vaccine,
he vaccine may be injected by a
tor, or in the case of a doctor not
g at hand, a trained nurse could
y out the procedure.   The first in-
ion   of  vaccine,   amounting  to  a
drops  of  a  sterile  liquid  intro-
,ed under the skin, is followed in
days' time by a larger injection,
for greater security a third may
jiven ten days after the  second,
few hours after the  first injec-
a little headache and slight ma-
may be  experienced, with ten-
less  about the point  of  inocula-
This   is   seldom   sufficient   to
a man to stop his wark, as by
lext morning he usually feels as
as usual.   After the second and
injections  no  reaction   is  pro-
the person seldom experienc-
tny discomfort whatever.
Js significant that many large em-
rs of labour have gone into this
;_ct deeply, with gratifying results,
sties having shown that of those
erly  inoculated  practically  none
taken typhoid within a year, and
ection is probably afforded for a
lh longer period.
ilis method should appeal espc-
jy to friendly societies and labour
ns who pay benefits to their sick
libers.
phoid Vaccine may be obtained
application to the Provincial
d of Health, or from drug-stores.

[Modern and Fancy
Dancing
popular feature of the approach-
J'winter season should be the Fancy
licing classes which will be held
I Mrs. Charles Jackson and her
Ighter, recent arrivals in Victoria
In Winnipeg. Mrs. Jackson, who
|i native of Hull( England, came
Canada to join relatives in Winni-
and while in the Prairie Capital
[ducted dancing classes with con-
|:uous  success.    She  numbered  in
clientele many ladies who were
Id to be coached for Court present-
Itn at Ottawa and made a name for
[self by her original fancy dancing,
■which she may be said to make
Ipecialty. Historic dancing and the
|y English graces, which were such
jelegant feature of by-gone days,
also included amongst the arts
I teaches. Armed with the highest
Jentials from Winnipeg, Mrs.
Icson has sought the milder climate
of the Coast and will be pleased to
receive pupils at her studio, 402 Chester Avenue, Victoria, B. C. It should
be needless to say that in addition
to the specialties mentioned above,
Mrs. Jackson and her daughter give
instruction in the more ordinary form
of the art Terpsichorean.
"Whitaker"
The name Whitaker has become
world-famous, ever since Joseph
Whitaker, F.S.A., published his first
Almanack in 1868, and the name is
now known wherever English is
spoken. The work sells in this country and in every part of the civilized
globe. Let a discussion arise between
disputants, and as a matter of course
the final arbitrament will be left to
"Whitaker."
Like numerous other English concerns, the Whitakers have only recently realised the importance of accommodating their wares to the needs
of the market outside the British
Isles. Their Almanack has sold here
for years, but it was a purely British
edition with a quantity of detail possessing little interest to anyone outside the United Kingdom.
This year witnesses a revolution.
The Whitakers have now prepared
an absolutely world-wide edition of
their famous work, which they have
called "The International Whitaker."
It opens with the Universe and proceeds with the Earth, whicli is treated
in all its quarters. Each Nation is
dealt with on uniform lines, and a
mass of information, with exhaustive
details, is now provided in an extraordinarily handy and convenient
form. It is the book for Canada. It
is the book for every country.
Character by Handwriting
' H. P. E„ FENELON FALLS, ONTARIO
—Here we have egotism, jealousy and self
esteem. Sensitive, with decidedly artistic
talents, and with good taste in social and
other matters. Bright, cheerful, fond of fun;
a pleasant companion. Temper inclined to be
sullen, but well controlled. Ambitious, clever,
would do well if greater powers of application
were shown. Honourable in most matters.
Impulsive, hasty, apt to be careless and unobservant, too intent on personal aims and
ideas. Affectionate and capable of great self
sacrifice on occasion. A lack of moral and
mental stability is indicated.
ARTHUR—Yours is an uncommon character and one which may get you some hard
knocks. However, I will not dwell on this.
Affectionate, careful, precise and self-opinionated, you should make a good teacher or
parson. The speculative element is absent
from your character, but you have acquisitiveness and some idea of money values. Artistic
feeling is evident and you are sensitive in
some few things, dress, music, books; but
obstinacy, pride, and self-will are all marked.
You should excel at music and be fond of
literature. As your lights go you are honourable and you do all for the best. You are
neither cruel nor malicious, and your sense
of justice is fair.

A LETTER FROM BISHOP
MACDONALD
(The following letter appeared in
the Colonist of the 25th inst. We are
reprinting it by request in order that
all readers of The Week who saw
Mr. Scott's letter in our issue of the
24th may have an opportunity of
reading rhe Bishop's reply. Ed.
Week.]
Victoria, B.C., Aug. 24, 1912.
Sir,—f am loth to remain a whole
week under the ugly imputation cast
upon me by Mr. J. C. Scott in today's
issue of The Week of this city. This
is my excuse for seeking the hospitality of your columns, f wish to say
at the outset that I do not altogether
blame Mr. Scott. The facts, so far
as he knows them, have an ugly look,
but I am going to tell the people of
Victoria a straight story, and f know
that they will believe me.
When the number of The Orphans'
Friend for August, 1909, appeared I
was out of the city and up the Island
on a confirmation tour. Almost immediately on my return I left Victoria
to take part in the First Plenary
Council of Quebec, and did not return
till late November. The article on
"Education," which contains the passage quoted by Mr. Scott, I either did
not read at all or only glanced at. At
any rate it made no impression on my
mind. When my attention was called
to what purported to be a statement
drawn from it by a writer in The
Week for August 10, I at once turned
up the files of The Orphans' Friend
and read the article on "Education"
till I came to the words "forgetful of
the dangers to which faith and morals
are exposed in those schools," which
I took to be the foundation for the
statement above referred to. Now
Mr. Scott points out that at the close
of the long and somewhat involved
sentence from which the above quoted
words are taken, there is to be found
the very expression whicii the writer
in The Week coniplains of, viz.: "exposing them," i. e. Catholic children,
"to eternal perdition." And he
charges me with "resorting to a
Jesuitical subterfuge to prevent the
Roman Catholic church being placed
in a very unfavourable light before
the people of this city." I can only
say in self defence that I have told
the simple truth above, and that I
hate quibbling and prevarication, and
subterfuge, as much, I hope, as any
man. I will say further, on behalf
of my friends, the Fathers of the So
ciety of Jesus, that they hate the same
quite as much as Mr. Scott or any of
his friends does.
I do not recognize Mr. Scott's right
to catechize me, but I will go thus
far in the way of answering him. I
am not the editor of The Orphans'
Friend and am not personally responsible for its utterances. But if it puts
forward editorially a statement that
reflects on the people of this city, or
any section of the people of this city,
f shall consider it my duty to get the
editor to withdraw that statement and
to apologize for it. I am glad of this
correspondence because of the opportunity it gives me to say this publicly. If the statement quoted by Mr.
Scott can fairly be construed to cast
a reflection on the morality of the
public schools of this city, I here and
now  take   occasion   to   repudiate   it.

Correspondence
(Continued from Page ii)
For my own part, however, 1 do not
think it can or ought so to be construed, and I feel sure it was not
meant to cast such reflection. The
meaning of the writer in The Orphans' Friend for August, 1909, as I
understand it, is this: We Catholics
hold that loss of faith leads to eternal
perdition, and that to be lukewarm
in the practice of one's religion is
to run a grave risk of losing one's
soul. We hold at the same time that
Catholic children who frequent the
public schools are liable to lose the
faith, or at least to grow lukewarm in
the practice of it, not because of the
positive evil influence of those schools,
as much as that our children do not
there get the training in faith and
conduct, that they need to safeguard
the faith and to form Christian character.
In conclusion, I wish to remind Mr.
Scott and his friends that they owe
the public some explanation of how
they came to put forward as extracts
from a "papal encyclical of Pope Pius
IX., December 8, 1864," statements
whicii are not contained in that or
any other papal encyclical.
ALEXANDER MACDONALD.
Bishop of  Victoria.
FOR  THE   MOTHERLAND
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—The letter of "Property
Owner" in reply to mine of thc ioth
inst., is beyond contempt and I sincerely hope that British Columbia
contains a no more sordid, poor spirited creature than this same "Property
Owner" shows himself to be. Still, he
deserves some reply and if you will
allow me f should like to point out
the absolute and utter error of his
ways to this benighted person. In the
first place "Property Owner" is hy
his nom de plume an owner of pro
perty. Very good. Now how is he
able to keep possession of that property? By the law of course. And
how does the law do this? By its
powers. And what are its powers?
Police and soldiers. "Property
Owner" would be one of the first to
invoke the law should he be threatened with the loss of his property.
It ill behooves him, therefore, to sneer
at the power behind the law.
But there is another side: "Property Owner" no doubt owns real estate. This is not the only kind of
property—there are goods and chattels, horses and cattle and many other
kinds and besides these, and what
some amongst us value far more,—
are liberty, freedom, justice, the right
to our own particular religion, and
our own mother tongue.
All of these we value, and should
be prepared to resist to the uttermost
any attempt to  deprive us  of them.
I will not argue with "Property
Owner" as to the cost of the scheme
I ventured to formulate, but I would
say that assuming the initial outlay
was $1,224,000: If this amount were
spread over live years the total per
annum, plus interest, would be only
$26,000, and assuming a fortnight's
drill for the whole body at a cost of
$1.50 per man per day, we have another sum of $422,400, making a total
sum of $448,400 per annum, say $500,-
000 in round figures. Assuming that
the province paid half this sum, the
Dominion the balance, the annual
charge to the B. C. taxpayers would
be $250,000, whicii is equivalent to the
sum of one-tenth of a cent per acre
over the whole province.
The lamentable ignorance displayed
by "Property Owner" when he stated
that "If you don't quarrel how can
you be attacked," shows how dangerous it is to give such an ignorant
person a vote, which I presume he
lias. I would ask "Property Owner"
how about Spain and the United
States? Austria and Herzegovina?
Turkey and Italy?
Now I will be perfectly plain with
"Property Owner." I fear war between the British Empire and a great
European Power and it is because of
this fear that I wrote my first letter.
We are in the Empire, of the Empire, and it is our duty as citizens to
prepare for all emergencies. As we
share the benefits of British rule so
must we take up the burden too when
called upon.
"Property Owner's" sneer about the
Motherland's lack of care and attention is beneath contempt, being grossly inaccurate and undeserved.
In conclusion, I can only hope
"Property Owner" will prove a man
when the day does come and that he
may eventually be led by the inspiration of nobler minds to do his duty
to that great Empire of whicii he is
at present such an ignoble citizen.
Yours faithfully,
IMPERIALIST.
FOR THE MOTHERLAND
Victoria, B.C., Aug. 28, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—There is evidently a
dawning estrangement between your
worthy correspondent, "Property
Owner," and his far-away, aged
"mother." He states, in so many
words, that she can mind her own
business and he will mind his. And
this, amongst her numerous cares and
anxieties for the welfare of her far-
flung family, etc. "Property Owner"
is not unlike a person who had been
allowed to slide in early youth and
was over-indulged with too many "all-
day-suckers," and no whopping, which
tends to breed contempt.
Your coldly calculating correspondent has figured out the oost of an
army for wealthy Canada, that has so
much to protect against neighbours
who stepped over the line upon one
occasion, without provocation,—and
are now tearing up Treaties.
Could "Property Owner" be induced
to spare a little time from his minute
and cold-blooded calculations, to ask
himself why "no one will ever attack
us," granting that he is right? The
answer is, because England is behind,
and not asleep. That "mother" who
would not (and never did) only sordidly count the cost if Canada were
in trouble.
He (Property Owner) "don't want
any such ideas" as an army for Canada. If you "don't quarrel how can
you be attacked?" says Property
Owner. But is he equally cock-sure
someone else may not want to pick a
quarrel with Canada, if she was found
unprepared to put up a fight; and
with strained relations between her
and the good old "mother"?
Ihave not the least idea who your
correspondent is, and I do not say he
is a naturalized American, who came
when he had realized the fatness of
the land; but his want of patriotism
looks uncommonly like it.

To the Editor of the Correspondence
Department of The Week:
Sir,—My attention has been drawn
to an editorial "Free Trade," in your
issue of August 17th, and I request
space to take issue with the entire
article as being one not having due
regard to community interests or fair
argument. In concluding said editorial you say: "No sane man,
whether Liberal or Conservative, now
questions the wisdom of the national
policy which is one of protection and
with the systematic introduction of
which in 1878 Canada commenced her
era of industrial prosperity."
From corporation interests, from
political - dual - party - exigency, and
from a protected manufacturer's aspect, where he is putting at least four
or five dollars of the consuming peoples' money into his private pocket
for every dollar the tariff puts into
the national treasury, possibly it looks

business and political interests;
