Liberal Tactics
IT IS many moons since. The Week made any comment on the
naval debate at Ottawa; in fact, not since Mr. Foster's brilliant
speech at the commencement of the debate. The reason for this
:hat The Week has always tried to treat the matter as one of public
and not of party interest, and hns fondly hoped that in the ultimate
issue both parties would come to a common agreement nnd support
Mr. Borden's bill. It is true that such an expectation might have
been unreasonable, because the bill had obvious defects and violated
principles which mnny men believed should govern any decision on
the important question of naval defence. That hope must bo abandoned in view of the prolonged blockade which is being maintained
by the Liberal Opposition. There was a time when it might have
boon possible to concede to the Opposition n desire to fight for a
principle; the principle of n "Canadian Navy" as opposed to a
"Canadian contribution." When Sir Wilfrid Laurier first invested
this alternative with the glamour of his eloquence there were many
who for national and patriotic reasons wavered in their approval of
Mr. Borden's proposals. But any unbiassed observer must admit
that the bubble has been pricked. It received its first puncture when
Mr. Borden made his reply and showed that many years must elapse
before Canada could build a navy of her own. It exploded when
Mr. Borden read to an astonished House the detailed memoranda
forwarded hy the First Lord of the Admiralty. Those memoranda
followed the line laid down in the memorable addresses of Mr. Borden and Mr. G. E. Foster; indeed, the prescience of Mr. Foster is
remarkable, when one notices that his magnificent address delivered
iu the Drill Hall at Vietoria three weeks ago is almost, like a
paraphrase of the most important parts of Mr. Churchill's memoranda. The latter clearly demonstrate that the anticipations indulged
iu by Mr. Burden have been more than justified by subsequent enquiries, antl that no less a sum than $75,000,000 would be required
to establish a ship-building works in Canada complete with all modern
requirements for armouring and equipping, and that an indefinite
term of yenrs must necessarily elapse before the keel of the first
Dreadnaught could be laid. No wonder that these memoranda have
created consternation in the Liberal camp; they demolish the Liberal
argument. Iu the face of this cold-blooded, definite statement nf
figures and estimates, it is amusing to read of politicians of the
calibre of Mr. Emmerson criticizing Mr. Churchill and denouncing
him for "interfering in Canadian politics." This is the insolence
of the chenp politician wdiich arouses the contempt of thinking men.
Mr. Emmerson and thoso who act with him would better serve tlieir
purpose by testing the credibility of Mr. Churchill's figures than by
rhetorically denouncing them. Unless they can prove that ho is
wrong, they must either abandon their opposition to Mr. Borden's
proposals or admit that they are not sincere in their expressed wish
to aid Imperial defence. Tliere is nn other way out of the dilemma
in whieh their fatuous opposition has landed them, and since both
political parties have voted in favour of the expenditure of a sum
of $3">,000,000, the only logical vote is a vote for spending it in the
only way in whicli it is practicable to attain the result aimed at. The
result of the present "impasse" can only be to strengthen the determination of the Government tn carry the bill against all odds, and
to place the Liberal Opposition in the position of having fought under
cover for a policy which has heen demolished not by argument but
by the inexorable logic of facts.
Imperial Unity
THE SOUL of the Editor of The Colonist is vexed within him
because the world hns not tnken kindly to his definition of
•British born." After making two attempts to explain what
he really meant in the first instance, he has finnlly endeavoured to
put himself right with the public by writing a lengthy article on the
subject of Imperial Unity. Tbis article, like most of the leaders in
The Colonist on British or Imperial matters, is "fearfully and wonderfully made." The author takes a series of didactic utterances,
entirely original, nnd preserving somewhat of the political fiction and
flavour of the hypothetical quotations from the "Pilgrim's Scrip"
with which Meredith interlards his greatest work "Richard Feverel."
These didactic utterances are then made the basis of certain deductions, all to thc belittling of the British nnd to the glorification of
the Canadian, the object being, as alleged in the article, to strengthen
good feeling nnd a good understanding between tho Cnnndinu born
and the British born. Such a course would naturally have that
effect. Tnke the following: "We tliink it may be taken for granted
;hnt a nation of more thnn 30,000,000 people living in Canada will
not be content to occupy a secondary place in the Empire. They will
have to bc full partners, or they will sci up business for themselves."
In order to make this statement even intelligible the author shoud
tell us what he means by a "full partner," and in what respect he
considers that Canada is not a full partner in the Empire today. Is
it in that she does not bear her share of the burdens of the Empire;
does not, at present, contribute anything towards Imperial defence,
and considers that she has made a full return for the protection she
has received from the Mother Country for several centuries by tardily
offering a Trnde Preference which it has time and again been demonstrated is a delusion and a snare? Perhaps judging from a subsequent paragraph in the article the writer thinks that full partnership means a voice in directing Imperial policy, especially as it
relates to foreign affairs. Most fair-minded men, even among Canadians, are willing to admit that such a concession can only be justly
earned by first assuming the responsibilities of a partner. Perhaps,
also, if the writer thinks fit to explain his position, he will tell us
exactly what he means by the threat that Canada may set up in business for itself. Is this supposed to be a fair representation of Canadian sentiment or only an individual opinion of a U. E. L. ?   Nor is
President of the Grand Trunk Bailway.
the writer more fortunate when he undertakes to make comparison
between Canada and other outlying parts of the Empire. When he
speaks of equality of partnership between its component pnrts, he
forgets that of nil the component pnrts Canada is the only ono which
up to date has done nothing towards contributing to Imperial Defence. South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and even the Malay
States have acted; Cannda, so fnr, lias simply talked, and one party
at any rate hns shown so little conception of the importance of Imperial Unity as to call down upon itself the jusl rebuke of fair-
minded men for the inconsistency nf its conduct and the virulence nf
it party strife at the moment when everything should have been
subordinated tn lite desire lo make n graceful gift iu a graceful
Wild Words of Angry Men
'P. BORDEN made a statement to the Houso affecting the
enst antl the time which wns required tn build Drondnnughts
in Canada. The Liberal Opposition, bended by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, laughed him to scorn, questioned the accuracy nf his estimates and denied the correctness of his conclusions. In order to
have the highest authority for nny statement he might make in connection with naval affairs, Mr. Borden wrote to the First Lord of
the Admiralty nnd perhaps even the Liberals will admit that
officially at any rate he is the highest authority on the subject. Mr.
Churchill replied in a series nf memoranda replete with information
of the most important and technical character. His memoranda fully
bore out Mr. Borden's original statements. Briefly these wcre to
thc effect that it would tnke something like $7f>,000,000 to establish
and fully equip ship-building yards fnr the production of Dread-
naughts, and that a long term of years must elapse before this could
be done. At the time thnt Mr. Borden wns making these enquiries
from the Admiralty, the Liberal leader in tbe House, and his followers, were almost daily quoting the First Lord as their authority nn
naval affairs, but no sooner were the celebrated memoranda produced
nud read by Mr. Borden thnn lhe Opposition Itnmehed a campaign
nf abuse nnd insult nt the hend of Mr, Churchill such as has never
been paralleled in a colonial Parliament, and which mnre than ever
demonstrates how far Liberal lenders at any rale hnvo tn travel before
they enn become acquainted with even tbe most elementary nmonities
of decent public life. The London Daily Telegraph commenting on
the incident says: "Surely there is nothing to justify such language
as that used by Mr. Emmerson. They are the wild words of angry
men." In a dexterous and incisive sentence The Telegraph considerately attributes the "wild words" of Mr. Emmerson and his friends
to ignorance, which it trusts "will speedily be removed by a more
complete knowledge of all the issues involved"—and Mr. Emmerson
was a Cabinet Minister. Meanwhile, Sir Wilfrid Laurier sits back
and says nothing.
Belasco's Bunkum
IN January last that admirable actor, David Warfield, appeared
at the Victoria Theatre in a play entitled "The Return of Peter
Grimm." The Week criticized the play rather severely at the
time as being one entirely unsuitable for representation on the stage,
dealing, as it did, with some of the most sacred features of human
life, and especially trenching on the confines of that mysterious bourne
from which Shakespeare tells us no traveller has returned. Now,
with respect to the scientific aspects of this question, it may be true
thnt Shakespeare is out of date. At any rate, it is true that many
advanced thinkers and investigators have arrived at this conclusion.
The criticism of the play was taken up in the New York Press by
Mr. Richard Savage, and condemned as unfair and not impartial.
The publicity thus given to the incident led to certain enquiries being
made. Among them an enquiry into the truthfulness of the statement made by Mr. Belasco or bis agents in their press notices tliat
those portions of the play dealing with psychical matters and the
spirit world had heen submitted to Sir Oliver Lodge and approved of
by him. The Week called attention to this at the time, expressing
grave doubts on the subject. It is now in receipt of two letters bearing on the matter, ono from the well-known writer, Mr. J. Arthur
Hill, of Bradford, Yorks., a member of the English Society of
Authors, who collaborates with Sir Oliver Lodge in his psychical research work; the other from Sir Oliver Lodge himself. In the course
of Mr. Hill's letter he says::—"I asked Sir Oliver about 'The Return
of Peter Grimm,' though with some hesitation, for he has the cares
of a great, University on liis shoulders. However, he is always ready
to do all he can in the interests of truth, ami hc kindly replied by
return. T scud his letter herewith. I nsked him for permission to give
yon his answer for publication, and you will say that he asks you to
deny the assertion with vigour. 1 huve never heard of tho play before,
but am instructing Mudie's (London) to hunt up information nbout
it. and, if possible, to get me a copy." Incidentally, before proceeding to Sir Oliver Lodge's letter, The Week has received Mudie's
reply, dated Feb. 13th, whieh is as follows:—"We beg to acknowledge receipt of your favour, and in reply to your enquiry respecting
a play entitled "The Return of Peter Grimm," have to inform you
that we cannot trace this in book form. It is not known nt the principal theatrical play publishing offices, nor has it been issued through
nny of the ordinary publishing channels."* Then follows Sir Oliver
Lodge's letter, whieh Thc Week quotes verbatim:
Mnriemont, Edgbaston,
Feb. llth, 1913.
Dear Mr. Hill:   Pray always consult mc about any statement such ns
your correspondent, Mr. Blakemore, refers lo, antl please lo deny the statement with vigour.
I never heard, that I know of, cither of Belnsco or Warlicltl, or anything about the piny. I suppose that at that distance people think that
anybody mny sny anything nbout anybody without fear of contradiction
or action for libel. But instead of believing it people ought to chnllengc
for proof. If the proof is forthcoming, well and good; so much the better
for them. Even then, they should he on their guard against forgeries.
Yours ever,
OLIVEIt lodge.
A copy of this article will be sent to Mr. David Belasco, nnd he
will have an opportunity of replying, if he sees fit, through the
columns of The Week, but lie will not purge bis offence unless be sends
a written leiter of apology direct to Sir Oliver Lodge.
Protecting Our Coasts
SELF-RESPECTING Canadians will hardly care in endorse
(lie policy enimeiuletl by Mr. Turriff in the House this week for
the protection nf our coasts, Mr. Turriff is n remarkable man,
as well as being n Liberal. Hi' claims special knowledge nf const
defence ami has the courage nf bis convictions, which is mnre than
can be snid fnr some of bis lenders, lie declares thut Canada needs
no navy, either on the Atlantic or the Pacific; that a few sunken
mines in tlie Straits nf Belle-Isle, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the
entrance tn Halifax Harbour, and a few more sunken mines in tho
Straits of Juan de Fuoa nml the neighborhood of Prince Rupert
wnuld effectually protect us against any hostile maritime force. He
even goes further nnd declares that as fnr as the Atlantic Const is
concerned "General Winter" is a sufficient protection six months
nut of the twelve and thut it, might he possible to economize on the
sunken mines by removing the buoys frnm the St. Lawrence. All of
whioh goes to slinw how utterly incapable snme men arc of appreciating tbe importance of naval defence, and how far they are from
realizing the responsibilities of "an equal partner" in nn Imperial
combination. There wns no disavowal of Mr. Turriff's vagaries on
the pnri of tlie Loader nf the Opposition.
Local Council of Women
TIIK Local Council of Women bus just hold its annual sessions
in Vietoria. Miss Crease, a representative of one of our oldest and most respected families, was elected President for
the ensuing yenr, ami Mrs. Dr. Donald, a newcomer who has greatly
distinguished herself in oonnootibn with numerous societies, was
elected Vice-President. The debutes nf the Council covered many
topics; nne nf ibe most importnnt resolutions was moved by Mrs. i age  __. vvu
The WEEK, with which is Incorporated the Week-End.
Victoria, March 15, 1913
Justin Gilbert in favour of tlio appointment of a woman as sanitary
inspector of shops, factories and workrooms. This is a subject about
whicli The Week .has sniil much anil need only now say that no
greater boon could lie conferred upon tlie women workers of the eity
than that such nn appointment should be made. It is to be hoped
that practical effect may be given to this resolution without delny.
The Week also favours the expression of opinion in favour of n
weekly half holiday for salesmen and saleswomen, and the necessity for better wages for young girls. There will also be general
approvn of the resolution introduced by JIrs. Frank Adams in favour
of a large und up-to-date Institute for special work among women and
girls, and its support of the management of the Y. W. C. A. in its
efforts to raise funds fur lhe proposed new building. .Mrs. K. S. Day,
the representative of lhe International Council for Patriotic Service,
read a paper on Mormonism, condemning the society very strongly
from a moral standpoint. As the subject is now being investigated
by tlie Social Service Commission, it was decided to postpone further
action on the part of the Women's Council; it is, however, to be
hoped that this does not indicate any lukewarmness or diffidence on
tlie part of that influential body in connection with an evil at once
tlie most insidious and destructive of any that threatens Canadian
social life. AVeek by week this paper is iu receipt of information
showing the increased activity of the Mormon missionaries and the
alarming extent to wliieh they have been able to establish "churches"
in Canadian Western cities. It is to be hoped that the officers of the
Women's Council have preserved a verbatim report of tlieir interesting and important proceedings and that such report may be available for circulation in pamphlet form. There is not eity in Canada
which possesses a stronger organization of the kind, or which is doing*
more practical work.
Post Office Service
IT IS not a pleasant task to publish so many serious complaints
about the inefficiency of the local post-office service. The difficulty is increased by tlie knowledge of the fact that most of
the trouble arises through tlie indifference of the authorities at
Ottawa, who do not seem able to realize tlie extent to wliieh Victoria
has developed during tlie last few years. The simple facts published
on the authority of the Henderson Directory Company during the
present week should not be without some effect on the Department.
The population of Victorin is now stated to be 07,000, which means
that it has doubled within two years. The AVeek has ascertained
that the increase in tlie staff and appliances of the local Post-office
during tliat time docs not exceed twenty per cent. Xo further comment is necessary. The complaints by the numerous correspondents
of The Veek are not lacking in definiteness or particularity and
many of them cannot lie answered. Tn addition to the lengthy letter
from Mr. Forsythe, published in the current number, which in several
important instances demonstrates the weakness of the service, Tlie
Week has a lengthy letter from one of tlie leading firms of manufacturers in tlie city, giving no fewer than five specific instances of failure to deliver letters and parcels within a reasonable time. As there
is not space to print this letter "in extenso" the following instances
may be cited: A letter was posted by the Provincial Government in
A'ictoria asking for a tender on certain work; blue prints were
despatched by the same mail under separate cover; they arrived ten
days after they were mailed. A letter addressed from A'ancouver
to a business address within tlie city limits of A'ictoria was returned
in three months tn the original sender, having been to England;
as the envelope was also returned, the correctness of the original address wns verified. A letter was posted to an address within the city
limits from the Alctoria Theatre two dnys before a certain performance took place. The letter readied its destination two days after
the performance. Notice of a parcel placed in u letter-box was
presented on three subsequent days before tin- parcel was produced.
It is nut necessary to go further; there is obviously a screw loose
somewhere; perhaps several screws. Such wide-spread complaints,
emanating from every branch of the community, can lead to but one
conclusion, thnt the Service is inefficient nnd unreliable; it is for
the Department tu Hnd out where tlie weakness lies and to remedy it.
was overcome by contracting with the wife of thc councillor, but tho
disadvantage of this method is thut it would be unfair in the case of
a councillor wdio had no wife. Presumably the lady in question,
although known for years in A'ictoria as a society lady, is a "bona
fide" contractor in Esquimalt, and, presumably, the business is her
own, in which case, providing she does as good work and gives as
satisfactory service as her male competitors in the teaming business,
there seems to be no reason why her sex should disqualify her from
participating in a legitimate business. The other councillors seem
to be satisfied that as far as the husband is concerned his skirts are
clean. All the same The AVeek cannot help commenting on the
proueness of aldermen and councillors to skate on thin ice and the
difficulty wliieh they seem to experience in keeping absolutely clear
of possible entanglements. One would think that the man wdio had
mnde up his mind tu serve the public would at the same time resolve
to place himself absolute}' beyond the pnle of suspicion iu the matter
of pubic contracts.
Cheslakee Verdict
THE finding of tlie Marine Court of Enquiry which investigated the foundering of tlie ' Cheslakee," will no doubt
receive the most careful consideration at the hands of the
murine authorities. These findings hnve been published at length
in the daily press. They ure thorough and convincing and should
loud to the enactment of more stringent regulations governing a eer-
ta'in class of small vessel wdiich plies nlong the const. The outstanding features of the verdict are that the same cause which
operated in thc loss of the "Iroquois," instability, had much to do
with the* foundering of the "Cheslakee." The margin of safety at
all times was too small and the load line should havo been moved
when the vessel readied the coast. Then certain structural alterations were made by the manager of the Union Steamship Company,
and these wero not propery supervised. The question of loading
and the proper construction of doors and various other technicalities
are dealt with in the report. The Court was of opinion that when the
vessel listed "water rushed in through the port doors." This is but
a repetition of what happened on the "Sechelt," wdiich foundered off
Beecher Bay two years ago. The redeeming feature is that officers
and crew are held to have behaved well and to have avoided a much
more serious catastrophe, and that the loss of life was not due to any
lack of discipline but to the fact that the serious and critical nature
of the ship's position was not realized at the time.
Music in the Park
EVERYONE agrees that we should have more music in the
parks; the popularity of bund concerts in the summer months
is the best proof of appreciation by the public. A movement
is on foot for providing a different class of musical entertainment in
the shape of open-air concerts or some such performances as those
given last season at English Bay by the Pierrots, and wdiich attracted
tens of thousands of people.
Such addition to the innocent amusements of our city would
bc a great boon and there seems to be no reason why
the attraction should not be allowed in Beacon Hill Park. The difficulty, however, is to decide on what terms it may be permitted. As
long as Dr. Helmcken lives the original trust deed will have a stalwart champion, and his view, which is no doubt the correct one, is
tiiat no performance may bo given in the Park for which a charge is
made. This difficulty probably cannot be overcome without special
legislation and it is doubtful whether the Government could be
induced to favour any legislation varying the terms of the original
trust deed. The simplest course is either for tlie city to subsidize
musical entertainments, if this can bc done legally, or otherwise
for a small influential committee to raise a fund by voluntary subscription sufficient to cover the cost. The AVeek is convinced that •
if this were done for one season, and music were provided at several
points by no means confined to Beacon Hill Park, the movement
would be so popular that tliere would be no difficulty in the future.
Tlie man who takes hold of this simple project and carries it to a
successful issue will lie a public benefactor.
Progressive Club
r | 111K Progressive Cub is making a bid for public favour; it
a has a definite programme and some excellent rules, the best
-*"- uf which is that which limits speeches nt its lunches to five
minutes. At this function un Tuesday two good addresses were
delivered in addition to a felicitous greeting frum the Premier. At
present it is a live organization with possibilities uf becoming practically useful to tlie city. Thc Week would respectfully point out that;
there is a rock upon whicli most of its predecessors have struck and
foundered. They have expended tlieir energies on talk without doing
any practical work. The Progressive Club has an 'Executive wdiich
is capable of bettering ihis record, and The AVeek suggests that the
way to better il is lu du une thing lirst, aud thing at a lime.   The
programme runs to n page of llic publicity pamphlet. Why not select
the must obvious und urgent uf ihe objects decided un nud muke a
'deud set" fur il, nml having achieved il, he able tu say "Something
accomplished, something dune," und Ihen prneeeed to the next item.
It is nut I'm* The Week tu suggest whnt should come firM, but it does
not appear ihul lhe objects uf the Club nre furthered niiieli by
periodical luncheons nnd addresses on mailers of which we nre all
agreed, sueh as the importance uf establishing industries, of providing amusement foi' the public and uf beautifying the city. The Week
is anxious tu see so capable and competent an organization demonstrating its practical efficiency, and the stage has about been reached
when all the good that can be done by luncheons and speeches bus
been accomplished.
Skating on Thin Ice
CERTATX events which have attracted attention in the Esquimalt district recently may well be utilized to "point a moral
and adorn n tale," If the Esquimalt incidents stood alone,
they might possess little significance, but, ns a mntter of fact, they
belong to n series. A'ictoria has had similar experiences, although
they have not been managed with the same amount of skill. Tn the
Capital burg two aldermen at least hnve had to resign their sents
within tlie last few years because it was found that they had violated
thc law wdiidi prohibits au alderman from having business relations
with the city. Botli these aldermen were men of the highest character and greatly respected in the community, but they had committed n technical breach and could only purge their offence by facing
another election. Even since the advent of tlie present City Council
it has been hinted that one of the same gentlemen might have been
unsealed if anyone had pressed the point. Tn Esquimalt the difficulty
Victoria Carnival
THE Carnival Committee bus acted wisely in deciding to postpone its next appeal for funds until it has improved its
organization. Whether the best method of laying ground
bait is by scattering broad c '.st 20,000 circulars may well be a matter
of opinion; The AVeek does not believe in it because nine-tenths of
these circulars will find tlieir wuy into the waste-paper basket unread,
whicli is tlie fate of nil circulars. The only effective moans of advertising for the purposes of the Carnival is through the press. AVhat
is wanted is a stronger Executive, containing the names of leading
citizens wdio are sufficiently well known to appeal to the public. Such
affairs as tho "Do It In Alctoria" and "The Flying Legion" have
done irreparable and lusting harm to publicity work here, and unless
The AVeek is very much mistaken the Committee will havo to get
buck lo more conservative methods before they will secure public
confidence and financial support. Tlie feeble response of the last
'hurricane campaign" is the strongesl endorsation uf this view. The
next effort should be well considered nnd thoroughly well organized;
n second failure will mean "Xu Carnival."
A Pictorial Navy
IX its last issue The Week made reference tu the pr '.ability of
a very fine set uf pictures illustrating life in the Xavy, being
brought to Vietoria. Through the enterprise of Mr. Clifford Denham these pictures have now been secured and will be exhibited in
the Victoria Theatre on Friday, Snturdny and Monday, '.March 21,
22 and 24. The pictures are in n class by themselves, having been
prepared expressly for educational purposes. They are being shown
throughout the Empire and have recently been exhibited to packed
houses in 'Montreal. They are not merely pictorial in the sense of
being picturesque, but informative, dealing technically with every
branch of naval I raining, Inking the boy when lie leaves homo and
finishing with him when he has become an admiral. Tt is only by
great good fortune and a little luck that these pictures hnve been
secured for Victoria. They will be exhibited under the auspices of
lhe .Vavy League which is a sufficient guarantee for their genuineness and high character.
a eity Market
FBOM lime to time the subject of a city market crops np and
although the proposal always  moots  with   approbation,   it
evaporates in talk.   Jlrs. Watt revived the matter this week at
the annual meeting of the AVoinen's Council and pointed out thnt
there was a public demand for a market, that its establishment would
result in securing better prices for what country people had to soil
and cheaper food for housekeepers in the city. Her arguments were,
reinforced by Mrs. II. 0 Hanington, a lady wdio takes a constant and
lively interest in public affairs in A'ictoria. Alderman Cuthbert,
wdio seemed to be a sort of guest of honour on the occasion, undertook to illuminate the subject by expressing his own views, wdiich
were that the old market had failed for two reasons; that there \v_
not sufficient variety of products, and that Victoria women would
not go to markets. Tliere was a time wdion the Saanich Peninsula
would have produced more than sufficient of every kind of farm
produce to feed Victoria. That day has passed; the population of
Victoria has trebled and the productiveness of the Saanich Peninsula as a farming district has diminished to one-fourth. Tt is doubtful whether a public market would attract sufficient produce to have
any material effect on the community, but in the opinion of The
Week it ought to be tried; it would nt least furnish an opportunity
both to producer and consumer to see if it is possible to "get together"
for their mutiitil benefit.

on Friday and Saturday next, March
14 and 15, that is just as this issue
makes its appearance, the Boy Scouts
of Vietoria are to give an exhibition
of Scout-craft at the St. John's Hall
on Herald Street. We do not hear a
great deni now-a-days about the Boy
Scouts. They do not thrust themselves on our attention nor do they
advertise themselves all day and every
day by noisy demonstrations. And
because they nre modest and well content to do their work quietly und
without n grent blare of trumpets, I
am afraid that mnny of us nre apt
to forget that this organization is
still in existence and is still doing
une of the finest works in boydom that
has ever been inaugurated. The letter itself appears in another column
of this paper and I hope that many
of those who may read these lines
will take the opportunity of seeing
for themselves just whnt a good thing
the Boy Scout movement is.
I sincerely hope that some action
will be taken this year with reference
to the planting of waste spaces nnd
of how cities in the Enst hnve beautified their premises by encouraging
the growth of flowers nnd shrubs in

ACCORDING to the figures recently published by the
Henderson Directory Co., the population of Victorin is now
over (17,000. Without vouching for this, one may fairly
assume that the basis of computation is correct, as the firm has been
identified with the preparation of statistics for many years, and
the total population no longer preserves its uniform rutin
number of names in the book, the estimate is correct.
Few people realize whnt this means. It means that the population has doubled since the census of 1011, in other words within
two years. Looking around the eity ancl environs, nne finds no difficulty in believing litis, for word pictures, however skilfully painted,
luil to convey nn adequate impression of the changes that huve taken
place and the different aspects presented.
The most obvious change is in the enormous increase in the
number nf homes. Vietoria is essentially a city nf homes, nml it in
the highest desire uf ull who love it that that feature shall r. main i
chief characteristic. But like many other prosperous cities, Victoria
possesses a dual character; its climate, its magnificent Scenery and
its picturesque contour mark it out as u city nf beauty, unrivalled
in natural attractions. On the other hand, its unique transportation
facilities by land nnd wnter; its proximity to great natural resources
of mine and forest, antl its geographical position mark if ont-ns essen-
(iully nn industrial centre.
Some nf tbe finest cities in the wii'rld possess these Iwn sides, us
diverse ns the opposite sides of a shield, antl tliere is no reason why
Victoria should nnt add to its population, to its importance, and to
its wealth by developing a large industrial life. This does not menu
thnt we need sacrifice beauty to materialism; nr that we should recklessly tint the landscape with smoky chimneys.
Our City Council bus already designated certain sections fur
Manufacturing purposes. Tbey can go further, and by a rigid insistence uu the employment of the most up-to-date methods aud the use
of the must modern scientific appliances for consuming smoke and
suppressing noxious fumes, do much to minimize the must objectionable features of n factory district, ll is better to do this thnn not to
encourage the establishment of manufacturing industries.
It is not necessary to discuss here tbe important part wliieh these
play in building up the life of a community. In addition to providing occupation and a livelihood fur thousands of people, they give
character and tune to a city; they furnish stability nnd distinctiveness, especially when the eity becames famous for the production of a
certain line uf manufactures.

But while everybody admits this it is not everybody who realizes
thai there is n practical form in. which lhey can show iheir appreciation and really help to build up local industries. That practical form
is by encouraging the use of local products. It is regrettable to find

"Alma, Where Do You Live?"
presented at the Victorin Theatre
ist Wednesday is not the sort of play
which nne would escort a convent-
young lady during her first
lenten seuson spent outside the con-
it wulls.   At the snme time it must
confessed that it is extremely
iitsing and the delieute, or rather
idelicitte, allusions with which it is
iniewhiit plentifully adorned, arc
it of a very harmful nature when
itnessed by a house full of adults,
.oreover, in mutters of this kind,
is not so much whnt; is suid as the
anner in which the speaker says it,
id judged by this merciful standard
is safe to sny that "Alma, Where
i You Live?" does not really of-

Brc moulded to the type of girl

ust be remembered that the original
ould probably not be a first-class

niipany wits possessed by Miss Murie

iportunity of displaying it. Mr.
*r, the country boy who doesn't
iow how to make love, bus a sweet
nor voice, but it is very soft und
doubt whether he could be henrd
the back of the bouse.
But though the music of "Alma,
'here Do You Live?" is haunting
id pretty, the life and soul of the

WITH the exception of a melodramatic sketch punctuated
with shrill ear-piercing screams contributed by the Glendower-Manion
Co., the bill at the Empress Thentre
Ihis week is one of unusual merit.
The programme opens with one of
lhe most graceful roller skating Innis
thnt bus ever visited Victoria nnd the
"Bi Jouvcs" thoroughly deserve ihe
reception which is being aoorded Ihem
every night. Dow & Dow are a pair
of comic cuts who manage to muke
the house lauglf wilh Iheir drolleries,
though their wit is hardly transcendent. Aliss .lennie Fletcher is Hie
possessor of a fine voire which she
uses with good effect in well known
songs, and lhe bill closes witli n trio
of acrobatic comedians Who are
equally skilful in either capacity.
PICTURE stories woven around Hie
character of "The Little Corporal" are always popular nnd this
week al the Crystal Theatre the Cines
Conipuny hnve been showing n fascinating two-reel film dealing with u
romantic incident in the life of one
of Napoleon's officers. The picture
wns well staged nnd more thnn well
received. Of the vuudevilliiins mention must be mnde of a bund of colored singers who scored heavily during
the first three dnvs.
NO more appropriate time could
have been selected for n series
of pictures dealing with life in the
navy than the present. On Fridny
next filty Bradford's grent patriotic
naval exhibit ion will be seen on the
screen nl Ihe Victorin Thentre nnd
will remain over till Monday. Matinees will be given on the three days
us well as evening performances nnd
ns the prices nre low it is hoped thnt
the theatre will be filled at every performance as lhe pictures afford a
unique opportunity of seeing whnt life
iu Ibe British navy really means.
Starling wilh Ibe buy jusl leaving
his homo, bound for the navy, the pictures trace bis career for the following three yenrs. He is shown arriving on board bis ship nnd being measured for his new uniform. From
these early incidents we follow him
to bis first drill nnd see him nt work
and at piny. Then follows a I rip
abroad nnd the youthful .luck Tin*
is seen on foreign service.
Tn the course of the pictures it is
but natural that, mnny interesting
scenes nre depicted. The lilms record
many tnken during the building of
n battleship by permission of the
First Lord of Ibe Admiralty. A review is included in the evening's entertainment together with pictures
taken of preparations being made fur
war. The pictures come to Victorin
with lhe highest recommendations
from the press of the Oltl Country
nnd wdll not fail to evoke the snme
onthusinsni ns wns culled forth by
the Kinemacolor exhibition of the
Great Durbar.
WILLIAM H. Crane bus one of
his renl comedy bits in "The
Senator Keeps House," which he will
oiler nt the Victorin Thentre, Monday
April 71b. The story is the work of
Martha Morton, who bus written n
number of the best light comedies Mr.
Crane bus produced in the many years
Hint be bus been adding good American productions to bis repertoire. Tlie
net ion of the piece takes place in
Washington, D.C., at the present, nnd
Mr. Crane is seen once more us a U. S.
Senntor. He invaded the Senate once
before nud with such line results Hint
be was willing to go buck to the upper
legislative body nt Jliss Morton's
request nnd so we will see him once
more in n familiar group. One immediately recalls the Crane attributes
unit can prepare for a treat in this
new characterization for there is n
round nnd mellow charm in his humor
und u sincerity of purpose in his rugged drawings of tlie typical man of
affairs Ihul endeur him to all.
' J. best of nil Ibe musical comedies by Frank Pixley and fiuslnv
Luders, begins nn engagement al the
Victorin Thentre, April 15th. This
attraction has contributed more to
the gniety of Hie theatre's following
than bus any other work. No similar
work written in the pnst ten years
hns achieved anything like the success
Hint bus come to it. Skilfully plotted,
studded with the most (exquisite bf
melody, with lyrics of exceeding
cleverness and delightful comedy, it
serves ns a model in the art of musical comedy building. The production
to be given hero is absolutely new,
ill singe investiture und csinnie em
bellishments, and practically sn iu
principals and chorus. "Jess" Dundy
is ugnin lhe Cincinnati brewer-alderman. The new Prince of Pilsen will
he Bernard Ferguson, whose line bnri-
tone voice bus brought him distinction. The new cast will show Mary
C. Murray, us Edith; Lottie Kendall
ns the dashing widow; Edna Pendleton, n clever little ingenue, ns Nellie,
und Norma Brown us the pert French
maid, Sidonie, Dorothy Delmore will
piny tlie part of Jimmie, lhe bell boy.
The big chorus is comely, graceful
and possessed of good voices. Tlie special orchestra curried with this nl traction will be under the direction of
Emil Biermnnn.
BUI) FISHER'S "Mutt and Jeff"
cartoons, which have been attracting tbe attention of the entire
country, huve been dramatized by
fins Hill, the well known New Y7ork
producer and manager. These furiously funny cartoons have been made
into u musical comedy of unusual pretension, nnd will be presented ut the
A'ictoria Theatre on March 20th.
There nre fifty people in the compuuy, including a stunning chorus of
young women whom Mr. Hill hns
gowned in some most fetching eos-
I nines to harmonize with the ninny
catchy song numbers in the piece.
The principals nre particularly well
filled to their parts. In certain instances players were secured from
other companies and brought across
lhe continent in order that the right
principals might be bud. The plot of
the play is rather well defined, which
is unusual in n musical comedy of
Ihis type, but nt the same lime
Ihere is not too much story to interfere wilh side-splitting by-plays indulged in by Hie elongated "Mutt"
nnd the abbreviated "Jeff."

Lhevinne wns an infant phenomenon ; be begun the study of the piano
before lie bail mastered tlie alphabet.
He lind barely passed bis third birthday when evidence of musical precocity became so pronounced thut his
parents, who lived in Moscow, determined ut once to give the child u
thorough musical education. At the
age of eight Lhevinne wns a public
soloist. At fourteen he nppenred ns
soloist nt one of tlie concerts of the
Moscow Symphony Society, playing
Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto
with sueh success Hint Hiibenslein
publicly embraced him. At Moscow
Conservatory, Safonoff wns Lhevinne 's tencher, Rubenstein his pnt-
ron, nnd Tschnikowsky his musical
Lhevinne is often compared to
Hiibenslein. There is probably no nr-
lisl upon whom lhe mantle of thut
great muster could so justly full.
An interesting story of Rubeinstein
concerns Lhevinne. It wus when the
Russian pianist, us a boy, wus studying at the Moscow Conservatory (ont1
of Hie Iwo most important royal inusi-
cnl institutions of Russia) ihal
Rubinstein first henrd him piny. A
friendship sprung up which lusted until the death of Hie famous master.
Rubinstein was nt ouce so impressed
with the genius of bis young countryman, then fourteen, (but be had him
play Beethoven's Emperor Concerto
nt one of lhe Moscow Symphony concerts. It was n remarkable success,
a turning-point in the career of n
young artist destined to become world
Lhevinne stales that one of the
most treasured memories of his life
concerns that concert. He remembers
well the strain he wns under, overwhelmed at the honor conferred. And
Rubinstein nnd Tschaikowski were in
the audience. Finnlly when the performnnce wns over, and it proved so
successful, Lhevinne wns quite overcome to hnvo Rubinstein embrace
him, in plain view of everyone, lay
his hand on bis bend und sny, "Very
good, very good. Work hard. Y'ou
will mnkc a name in the world." In
later yours Lhevinne wns often a
guest of Rubinstein's while enoying
a close friendship with Tschaikowski
as well. The tour of lhe noted Russian pianist is under Ibe management
of Loudon Charlton, the well known
New York impresario,

Some one dropped an orange peel
carelessly upon the walk, little recking that some heel, stepping there,
would cause a shock. Some one else
came blithely down, full of happiness
and cheer, then he slid all over town
and the suburbs on his ear. Then for
seven months, about, on a couch of
pain he lay, and the language he put
out made the nurses turn away. Thus
we see his moral state underwent an
awful shock, all because some trifling
skate dropped a peeling- on the walk.
Some one dropped some carpet tacks
on a quiet thoroughfare where the
autos make their tracks when the days
are bright and fair; then a load of idle
rich down along that highway tore;
still I hear the raucous pitch of their
voices as they swore. Sorrow then
succeeded mirth in the twinkling of
an eye, and the men folks pawed the
earth, and the girls sat down to cry.
Some one idly threw a brick at a
passing butterfly, and it made a neighbor sick, for it hit him in the eye.
Some one's doing careless things
every minute of the year, and his
folly always brings grief to some poor
duffer near; as I write these earnest
knocks I have got a broken jaw, caused by some one throwing rocks, and
there ought to be a law.

IT has been said, as n kind of
joculnr epigram, Hint the Holy
Roman Empire was neither holy nor
Roman nor au empire. With similar
truth it may be said that Christian
Science is neither Christian nor
science, in any ordinary sense of
those words. Still, perhaps we ought
to allow an inventor tu christen his
own creation, even it! Hie name seems
inappropriate, or likely to cause misunderstanding; and, Mrs. Eddy having invented Christian Science as an
organized religion—though, as we
shall see, borrowing ils main features
from an earlier prophet—we mny ud-
mit her right to give n name to her
astonishing production. In order Hint
the personal equation mny be nllowed
for, the p.esent writer begs to affirm
that he writes as n sympathetic student though not an adherent.
Mary A. Morse Baker was born on
July 16th, 1821, of pious parents, at
Bow, New Hampshire. Her father
was almost illiterate, rather passionate, a keen hand nt a bargain, and
a Puritan in religion. All the Bakers
were a trifle cranky and eccentric,
but some of Ihem possessed ability of
sorts, though Mary's father made no
great success in life. His daughter
made up for him afterwards.
The lirst lifteen years of Mnry
Baker's life were passed at the old
farm at Bow. The place wns lonely,
the manner of life primitive, nud education not n strung point iu the community. Mrs. Eddy afterwards
claimed to have studied in her girlhood dnys Hebrew, Greek, l.nliu,
natural philosophy, logic, and moral
science! It wns. however, inuintiiincd
by her contemporaries that she was
backward and indolent, and thai
"Smith's Grammar,' and as fur us
long division in arithmetic," might
be tnken ns indicating the extent of
her scholarship. There is certainly
some little discrepancy here, and
perhaps Mrs. Eddy's memory wns n
trifle nt fault. She mnde no clnim
to nny acquaintance with Ihis formidable array of subjects in the later
part of her life, and it seems probable
that her contemporaries were in the
right. Her physical beauty, coupled
wilh delicate health, seem to huve resulted in "spoiling," for even us n
child she dominated her surroundings
to n surprising extent.
In 184H she married George Glover,
wdio died in .lune 1S-I4, leaving her
penniless. Her only child wns burn
in the September following. After
ten yenrs ol widowhood she mnrried
Daniel Paterson, a traveling dentist.
In 18(1(1 lhey separated, lie malting
some provision for her. lu 1S73 she
obtained a divorce on the ground uf
desertion. In 1877 she married Asn
Gilbert Eddy, who died in 1882.
Sn much fnr her matrimonial experiences, which mny now he dismissed, ns they hnd no particular influence on her character and career. To
prevent confusion, we will cnll her
throughout hy lhe name which is mosl
familiar lo us nud lo the world.
The chief event of Mrs. Eddy's remarkable life, the event which put
■her on lho rond tn funic nnd fortune,
occurred in 18(12. This wns her meeting wilh the famous "healer,"
Phinens Pnrkhursl Quiinhy. This latter wns nn unschooled but earnest
and benevolent mnn, who hnd mnde
experiments in mesmerism, etc., nnd
who hnd found—or thought he hud
found—that people could be cured of
their ailments by "faith." lie therefore begun lo work nut n system u'
"mind-cure," which he embodied in
voluminous MSR. T'uticnls cume to
him from fnr nnd nenr, nnd he treated all, whether lhey could pay or not.
Quiniby wns much ahove lhe level of
the common qunck, nml his character
commands our respect. Ile wns n mnn
of grent nnliirnl intelligence, nnd wns
admirable in nil his dealings wilh
family, friends nnd patients.
Mrs. Eddy visited him at Portland
in 1862, her aim being treatment for
her continued ill-health. She claims
to hnve been cured—in three weeks
—though it is clear from her later
letters that the cure was not absolute. Still, great improvement was
apparently effected, fur she had been
almost bedridden, with some kind uf
spinal or hysterical complaint, for
eight years previously. But Quimby's
effect on her was greater mentally
even than physically. She became interested in his system, watched his
treatment of patients, borrowed his
MSS., and mastered his teachings. In
1864 slits visited him ngnin, slnying
two or three months, nnd prosecuting
her studies. She now seemed to hnve
formed n definite desire to nssist in
teaching his system. No doubt she
dimly saw a possible career opening
out in front of her; though we need
not attribute her desire entirely to
mere ambition or greed, for it is probable that Quiniby did a great amount
of genuine good, nud his pupil would
naturally imbibe some of his zeal
for the relief of suffering humanity.
Iu 1866 Quiniby died, nged sixty-
four. His pupil decided to put on
the mantle of her teacher, but more
as propagandist nnd religious prophet than as healer. In this latter
capacity perhaps her sex wns against
her. (Even now the nvernge individual seems to hnve n sad luck nf
confidence in the "lady doctor"!)
But she wns poor, nnd prospects did
not seem promising. For some time
she drifted nbout among friends—
chiefly spiritualists—preparing MSS.
uud teaching Quimbyism to any one
who would listen. (She afterwards
denied her indebtedness lu Quiniby.

Though unsuccessful ns healer
(in spite of her later claim tu
have healed Whittier of "incipient
pulmonary consumption" in uue
visit) she certainly had the knack of
teaching—hud the power of inspiring
eutbusiasm and of inoculating others
with her idens. In 1870 she turned
up nt Lynn, Muss., wilh n pupil mimed Richard Kennedy, a lad of twenty-
one. Her aim being to found a religious organization based on practical
results (the prayer of faith shall hcitl
the sick, etc.), il wns necessary to
work with a pupil-practitioner. Accordingly she und Kennedy took offices nt Lynn, and "Dr. Kennedy"
nppenred un n signboard affixed tn a
Immediate success followed. Patients crowded the waiting-rooms.
Kennedy did lhe "healing*" und Mrs.
Eddy organized classes, which were
recruited from the ranks of patients
nnd friends; fees, u hundred dollars
for twelve lessons, afterwards raised
to throe hundred dollars for seven
lessons. Before lung, however, she
quarrelled with Kennedy, nnd in 1.872
tbey separated, but nol befure she
hml reaped about six thousand dollars
as her share of the harvest.   II was
her lirst taste of s ess, after weary
years of toil and stress nnd hysteria
nml eccentricity. Naturally, like
Alexander, she sighed for further conquest, L'appetit vient en innngcnut.
And, though in her fiftieth yenr, she
wns now more energetic thnn ever.
Her next move wns the purchnse
of n bouse nt 8 Brunei Street, Lynn,
which became lhe first official headquarters of Christian Science, lu
1875 appeared her famous bunk,
"Science and Health, Willi Key to
the Scriptures," which wns financed
by two of its author's friends. The
first edit inn wns nf n thousand copies.
As il sold but slowly, she porsunded
her chief practitioner, Dnnicl Spofford, to give up his practice nnd to
devote himself to advertising it and
pushing its sale. Since then it bus
been revised mnny times, nnd tho
editions nre legion, Loyal disciples
of the better-educated sort hnve assisted in its rewriting, nnd it is now
a very presentable kind nf affair ns
to its literary form. Most, if not nil,
of the editions have been   sold    nt
$3.18 per copy, and the author's
other works are published at similarly
high prices. All Christian Scientists
were commanded to buy the works of
the Reverend Mother, and all successive editions of those works. It is
not surprising that Mrs. Eddy should
leave a fortune of a million nnd n
half dollars. It may be mentioned
here that she moved from Lynn to
Boston in 1882, thence to Concord
(New Hampshire) in 1880, und finnlly to a large mansion in a Boston
suburb whicli she bought for $100,-
000, spending a similar sum in remodelling und enlarging. The modern
prophet does not dwell in the wilderness, subsisting on locusts und wild
honey. He—or she—bus moved with
the times, and has a proper respect
for the almighty dollar and the comforts of civilization.
In 1881 was founded the Massachusetts Metaphysical College. This imposingly named institution never had
any special buildings, and its instructions were mostly given in Mrs. Eddy's parlour, Mrs. Eddy herself constituting all the faculty. Pour thousuud students passed through the
"College" iu seven years, nt the
end of which period it ceased tu exist.
The fees were usually $300 for seven
lessons, as before. Few gold-mines
pny ns well ns did the "Metnphysi-
cnl College." The fnct does nut ut
first sight increase eur respect fur
the alleged cuteuess nf the inhabitants
of the Stntes. But, on further investigation, the murder is nut. Must
of these students probably earned
bnck by "healing" much mure than
they paid Mrs. Eddy. Our respect fnr
"Uncle Sam's" business shrewdness
returns in full force.
The experiment of conducting religious services hnd been mnde by
Mrs. Eddy ut Lynn in 1875, but the
first Christian Science Church wus not
chartered until 1870. The Scientists
met, however, in various public halls
nf Boston, until 1804, when n church
wns built. This was soon outgrown,
and 10,000 of the faithful pledged
themselves to raise two million dollars
for its enlargement. The new building was finished in 1906. Its auditorium holds five thousnntl people.
The walls nre decorated with texts
signed "Jesus, the Christ," and
"Mnry Bnker G. Eddy"—these liuines
standing side by side.
The following examples, culled almost at random, will further show
how great is her conviction Hint she
has the Truth, how vigorously she
bulls her own slncks (somehow,
financial metaphors seem inevitable
when writing of Mrs. Eddy):
"God bus been graciously fitting
me during many years for the reception of ihis final revelation of tlie
absolute divine Principle of scientific
inentnl healing." (Science nnd lleullh,
p. 107.)
"I won my wny lu absolute conclusions through divine revelation,
reason und demonstration." (Ibid,
p. 100).
To those natural Christian Scientists, the ancient worthies, nnd to
Christ .lesiis, God certainly revealed
lhe Spirit of Christian Science, if not
Ibe ubsultile letler.    (Ibid., p. 483.)
The theology of Christian Science
is truth; opposed to which is the error of sickness, sin, and dentil, thnt
Truth destroys. (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 62.)
Christian Science is the unfolding
of true Metaphysics, that is, of Mind,
or God, und His nltribntes. Science
rests nn principle und demonstration.
The Principle nf Christ inn Science is
divine.   (Ibid., p. (10.)
The following may be quoted ns nn
example of mixed good ntul evil,
wilh n certain flavor of unconscious
"Ilntc no one; for  hatred    is   n
plngue-spot that spreads its virus and
kills at last. If indulged, it masters
us; brings suffering to its possessor
throughout time, and beyond the
grave, If you have been badly
wronged, forgive nnd forget: God will
recompense tllis wrung, nnd punish,
more severely thnn ynu cnuld, hint
who bus striven tu injure yon."
(Miscellaneous Writings, p. 12.)
The advice is good, but it is not
new. And Mrs. Eddy seemed to experience a special joy in the thought
thnt by leaving our enemies alone
tbey will receive from God a mnre
effective trouncing than we with our
poor appliances could nccomplish.
The idenl Christian would nut want
his enemies handing nver tn the inquisitor—he would beg for them to be
let off. "Father, forgive them, fnr
they know not whnt they do!" Thnl
is the Christian attitude. It is perhaps too high for ordinary mortals to
attain to, but Mrs. Eddy made such
high claims that we nre entitled tu
judge her by correspondingly high
The form of service in the various
Christian Science churches at first
included a sermon. But Mrs. Eddy
soon saw tliat this might introduce
discord; for the preachers might; differ in their interpretations of tho
Sacred Books. And Mi's. Eddy nbove
nil things uinictl nt unity, in order tu
keep nil control iu her own hnnds.
Therefore, in 1895, she forbade
preaching altogether. The Bible unil
"Science nnd Health, With Key to
Scriptures" were to be rend from,
but no explanatory comments were
to be mnde. The services comprise
Sundny morning nnd evening readings
rendiugs frnm these two bunks, with
music; tlie Wednesday evening experience meeting; nnd the communion
service, once or twice n yenr only.
Tliere is no baptismal, mnrringe, or
burial service, and weddings nnd
funerals are never conducted in
Christ inn Science churches.
As to church government, there
wns a norainnl board of directors, but
Mrs. Eddy bud supreme power. She
could appoint or dismiss nl will. The
Church wns hers, body nnd soul.
Probably uo utlicr religions lender

In June, 1907, there were in nil
710 branch churches. Of these,
twenty-live wcre in Canada, fourteen
iu Britain, two in Ireland, four in
Australia, nne in South Africu, eight
in Mexico, two in Gernuuiy. nne in
Holland, nne in France, nnd the remainder in the Stntes. There were
nlso 295 societies not yet incorporated
iuto churches. The liiltil membership
of the 710 churches wns probnbly
about 50,000. (In "Pulpit unci
Press, p. 82, JIrs. Eddy puis lhe

There nre nbout 400 authorized

Their inelhutl is to assure the patient
thnt he is under n delusion in thinking himself ill, thnt matter is an illusion, Hint God is All, ele. Tl sounds
very absurd. But the curious thing is
Hint many people huve been cured by
this treatment, nnd—naturally—these
people become union! Clirislinn
Scientists. It is by the practical application Hint Christian Science ns n
religion lives nnd thrives. As to the
kind nf discuses cured, lhe must extravagant claims are mnde. In "Miscellaneous Writing's," p. 41. Mrs. Ed
dy definitely states that "all classes
of disease" can be healed by her
method. After careful sifting of
much evidence, however, Dr. Myers
and his brother (F. W. H. Myers)
found that no proof was forthcoming
for the cure of definite organic disease by Christian Science methods.
(Proceedings, Society for Psychical
Research, Vol. IX, p. 160, also Journal VIII, p. 247.) Undoubtedly they
have been, and are continually, efficient in reliving, and even curing,
many functional disorders which huve
resisted ordinary niedicnl treatment—
nnd it must be remembered Hint many
functional derangements are as serious, subjectively, as grave organic
disease—nud consequently it is undeniable that Christian Science often
does good. But it is probable Hint
the snme nmouut of good could be
done, nnd perhaps more, by hypnotic
treatment by a qualified medical man,
or perhaps by other forms of "faith-
healing." The Christian Scientist is
using suggestion; but he couples it
up with religion, and thus, perhaps—
with some people—succeeds in driving Hie suggestion home with greater
force. It is noteworthy that similar
attempts are now being made in other
directions—witness the Emmanuel
movement in New York, the Fnithists
and various "psycho-theapeutic societies" in England, and the tendency
in some quarters (Bishop of London)
to return to anointing and laying on
nf hnnds of clergymen.
Psychologically, Mrs. Eddy is nl
least classified, if nol entirely explained, by one word—mouoideism.
She was a person of one idea. These
people, for whom wc usually have the
simpler term of "crank," are common enough. I have no personal acquaintance with the circle-squaring
nnd perpetual motion cranks mentioned by De Morgan (The Budget of
Paradoxes), but I know u "llnl-
enrtli" crank, and mn well acquainted with a "British Israelite" crank,
who seems to derive unspeakable joy
—tempered only by his failure to convert me—from the thought Hint we
Britishers nre veritably the descendants of one or more of lhe Lost
Tribes. All these people nre conscious of n mission. They hnve hnd
it revelntinn, nnd nre anxious to impart it. Their efforts mny not be
due to Ibe "lnst infirmity of noble
mind," still less to a lower motive.
They may just bc buill thai wny. The
majority of Ihem, like my Lost-
Tribes friend, gel no hearing because
of the inflexible pragmatism of a
stiffnecked and utilitarian generation.
"What difference does it make
whether we are lhe Tribes or uol?"
nsks the mnn in lhe street. And he
pusses on wdth a shrug or n grin, nc-
cording to temperament. This terrible
pragmatic lest makes short work nf
many amiable cranks. And it is justl
here that Christian Science scores its!
point; for it cures physical disease!
thereby becoming intensely practical!
Health is the chief "good" of life|
Anything that will restore it to
ailing body commands immediate unci
universal respect. Christian Science!
therefore, appeals, on its practical
side, to the deepest thing in us—til
the primal instinct of self-preservii|
tion.   Hence its success.
It is possible to blame Mrs. Edd;|
unjustly for her love of power ul
such. She was not unique in this rcl
spect. The difference is that Mr**!
Eddy succeeded while the others hnvl
not, and are consequently not hem* J
of. My Lost-Tribes Wend would hi

Motoring and Good Roads
ALTHOUGH the Victoria Automobile Association lias enjoyed
a rapid increase in membership during' tlie past few months,
thanks to the zealousncss and public spirit of its workers;
still there have been a good many more motor-cars sold within that
time than there have been applicants for admission into the
The Association was organized primarily in the interests of
everyone who owns an automobile on Vancouver Island. As far as
interests and influence go, it should really be known as the Vancouver
Island Automobile Association. It has members in every community
on thc Island. Its only function is to serve the needs of thu local
motorist, to enable him to reciprocate tlie courtesies extended him
when touring other sections, to help him secure "Good Laws and Obey
Them; Good Roads and Plenty of Them " as its motto runs; to protect him and his car; and to yield him the pleasures of seasonable
:ind delightful club runs, etc.
Everyone .who owns a car here should be a member of the Association. The dues are moderate in the extreme, when compared to
those of most other cities; and carry with them many pleasant privileges, to say nothing of benefits. The monthly meetings alone, at
he Association's cosy quarters on Fort Street, are interesting and
profitable enough lo repay this slight cost. They give the automobilist
a chance to air his grievances (if he has any), to compare notes with
all the rest of his brethren, to aid in the struggle for good roads and
road-laws, and bring him into touch with men whose advice and
on so late a date, it was unanimously
resolved that the Association sli
instruct Mr. J. R. Green to nppeur on
half of Miss Finlayson and that the
Association should pay his costs.
A liumber of accounts were passed
for payment; and these being no further business, the meeting then adjourned.
Special Session
A special meeting of the Association was held previous to the regular
one, at 8 o'clock, when thc following resolutions were unanimously
passed: "That in Article V of the
articles of Association in line 2, the
word Two be struck out and the word
Four inserted instead"; and "That
the following clause be added at the
end of said Article V: A Board of
Directors and such standing committees, as are deemed necessary, shall
be elected from time to time. The
Board of Directors, Chairmen of the
standing committees and the senior
officers of the Association shall form
the Committee of Management."

Woman Suffrage
Victorin, B.C., Mnrch 10, 1913.
Editor, The Week, Victoria.
Denr Sir:—If your columns are
still open on the quest ion of womnn's
suffrage, 1 should like to offer a feeble
defence of Mrs. Pankhurst's "illogical" conduct. It would appear that
the outrage on Mr. Lloyd George's
house wus carefully plnnned nnd enr-
ried oui deliberately in order to keep
the question of women's suffrage before Hie public, nt nny cost, whicii it
seems to mo (logically, I hope) very
likely to do.
Jlrs. Pankhurst threatens to starve
herself to denth—nlso very obviously
with the view of forcing the public to
Ihink nbout nnd discuss lhe question
she bus nt henrt—und 1 should think
she will probnbly gain her end
whether she netunlly dies for the
cnuse or uot.
People, liko myself, who hnvo ho
real sympathy with the militant campaign, will bo forced, ngninst our will,
to think (mure or loss logically) nbout
the question nt issue, nnd I venture
to offer ynu, ns n resull, nne reason
which occurs to me why women shnuld
he nllowed tu vote.
Men lny grent stress on our physical inferiority to their own sex—
whicli is perfectly obvious. We shall
never be able to do the rough work
of lho world ns well ns men, but I
fail completely to understand why
that should prevent us using our
brains on such question as reciprocity or home rule?
We nre nlso tnunted with lack nf
reasoning power, wliieh mny possibly
bo equally obvious, to the mnle sex—
bnl I think we mny fairly clnim to
huve n still higher faculty, thnt of
intuition, for which men nre not
usually remarkable.
I seem to have noticed nil my life
Hint men nnt only nsk their wives'
opinion, but act on their ndvice—simply becniise, I presume, lhey have
learnt by experience that somehow or
other "She knows"!
My illogical mind hns jumped to
the conclusion thnt n woman's intuition will serve her ns well us n mini's
reason when it comes to the vole.
I find, ns n rule, thnt women hnve
n keener moral sense on our big so-
cinl questions thnn Hie men, possibly because they nre the chief sufferers frnm war nnd intemperance—nnd
they hnve naturally mure sympnthy
with pain nud helplessness thnn mon
enn possibly ucquire.
I do nol expect to see the millennium immediately as a result of women's suffrage, but 1 do Ihink when
we can help to make the lnws of
our country, we shnll make n grout
difference for the belter.
However absurd nnd contradictory
Mrs. Pankhurst's words mny be,
there is no doubt to my mind of the
logicnl resull of her ncliuns. Every
grent cnuse hns hnd ils martyrs, nnd
if Mrs. Pankhurst succeeds in laying
dnwn her life for her itlenls, she will
undoubtedly light a bonfire in public
opinion thai all the men ill England
cannot put out.
Nothing nppnrenlly jiislilies ngita-
lion but success. Mny wo ALL live
to see it!
FILL, till your glasses, gentlemen,
And let the (oust go round,
Jo Womnn, darling Womnn,
Wherever she is found.
Without her, even the fairest spot
Ou earth is dark nnd drear;
But witli her, stormy winter seems
The summer of the yenr!
When Eve went out of Paradise,
Hud Adam stayed behind,
To him no lunger sent of hliss,
II: he were of my mind;
Willi her for his companion,
The wilderness wns bright,
And every dim and desert spot
Endued wilh Eden-light.
Worlds have been lost, so pools sing,
By womnn's artful wiles;
linl who would wish lu own u world
Without her sunny smiles?
Belter tu have the smallest house
Where Indies nre nbout,
Thau nil lhe palaces of kings
And emperors without.
Then drink wilh  I'orvenl  hearts nnd
The. Itius! that 1 propose;
To Womnn! womnn everywhere,
Creation's sweetest rase;
But chielly llinse whom wc love best,
Yes, dourer thnn our lives—
Our    mothers,    sisters,    daughters,
Our sweethenrts nnd our wives.

it seems probable that Mrs. Eddy,

writings meet n want wliieh some
people feel, nr, rather, provide them
with n useful impulse in the direction

stop brooding over his ailments nnd
worrying over things in general, you
have achieved something which enormously increases the chance of his
recovery; and if you can make him

the direction nf recovery, nnd nil his
emolionnl powers in the direction of
love and goodwill to his fellow-men
nnd towards God, there is no limit to
the powers wdiich mny be put in operation. In spite of nil our achievements in science—and they have been
great—we aro only, ns Newlon snid,

Nature is boundless; we enn fix no

I am not ut ull prepared to deny the
Christian Science cluiins, even with
regnrd to orgnnic disease. The distinction between orgnnic nnd functional is in our own inabilities, not
in the nature of the ense; we cnll u
tlisonse "organic" when wr find definite tissue-change, nnd "functional"
when we do nol; but in the hitter
ense there must bc some orgnnic
bnsis, though too small perhaps to be
discoverable—say n lesion in n tiny

evidence. I keep nn open mind. If I
come across enough evidence, I will
believe Hint it enn cure tuberculosis

clnimed,   whether   I cun understnnd
how it does it or not. At present,
like Dr. Myers, I nm not convinced;
but I have seen enough of Christian
Science results among my own friends
to prevent me from denying anything.
I merely suspend judgment. But I
do believe that the power of the mind
over the body is so great that almost
anything is possible; and I think thnt
the medical advance of the next half-
century will be chiefly in tllis hitherto
neglected direction. I happen tn
know that this, or something very
near this, was the strongly-held opinion of the late Professor William
James of Harvard, who, in addition
to being the most brilliant psychologist of his generation, wns also n

A  H' eekly Review of the Most Important Happenings in the Mining World,  With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M.I.M.E. Greenwell Medallist.
OXE of the most, important features in industrial development
is cheap fuel. Roughly speaking tliere are three natural
products whieh are extensively used as fuel—wood, coal and
oil. The former is the most, extravagant, the least effective and the
least economical of all, but tliere are circumstances under which it is
the only one available and has to bo used.
On the other hand there is far more wood burned in the city
than the householdor wots of and it is the greatest possible extravagance. Where cost is any consideration wood should only bo used
for purposes of kindling. This was true when cordwood could be
purchased for about $3 a cord in Victoria. It should be conspicuously
true with cordwood at $10.50.
Coming to coal perhaps few people are aware that according to
the highest scientific authority there are very few purposes for whicii
coal is used in which the process succeeds in utilizing anything like
fifty per cent of its efficiency. In an open fire grate the efficiency
is not more than ten per cent. It therefore holds good with coal as
with many other things, that it becomes a luxury and not a necessity
when we gratify our fancy by using it in an extravagant manner.
But since people love open fire grates and abominate stoves, and since
it is so much easier to feed fuel onto the fire bars of an open furnace
than into a gas producer, it evolves that coal is used extravagantly
and we have not yet been forced to demonstrate its actual efficiency.
England has had several scares on the subject of the exhaustion
of coal supplies. There have been two Royal Commissions, one in
the 'seventies, on whicii I had the honour of serving, and one at the
beginning of the present century.   The strange result of the last find-
ings was that after thirty years more mining and the extraction of
6,000,000,000 tons of coal, tliere wus found to be more available in
1903 than in 1873. Of course this is easily explained. Science and
invention had enabled us to go deeper, to recover other seams that
had not then been dreamed of and to work thinner seams that thirty
years ago had liecn regarded as unworkable.
In 1873 it was confidently predicted that thc coal supply of
England would bc exhausted in one hundred years, but the experts
arc still able to look a century ahead. Still the time will come when
it will be exhausted, although that time has now been considerably
retarded by the use of onr third fuel—oil.
The effect of oil so far has been to economise the production of
steam to the extent of from thirty to fifty per cent. This is nn enormous reduction in cost, due mainly to the low item for labor in production. And not only can steam be produced with oil as a fuel nt
Utile more than half the cost of coal, bijt the difficulties of production
aro so much less and tlie facilities for handling are so much greater
that one cannot wonder af, its popularity. Still, if people think that
conl is going to be any cheaper on this account they are mistaken.
The present high cost of coal is due to a combination of circumstances, none of whicii oan be qualified to any considerable extent, by
the competition of oil. it is Western conditions which make coal
dear. The proof of this lies in the fact that in the old coal producing
regions of Pennsylvania and Ohio eoal is cheap, but there wages are
low, the standard of living is low and there is unlimited capital for
In .British Columbia wages are high, the standard of living is
high, nud it is ns difficult, to get capital to develop coal property as
to get blood out of a stone. Xo doubt Jir. Commissioner Burns will
collect a mass of valuable information in to elucidate this important
question and if lie succeeds in showing the public why eoal is dear
he will have accomplished all that can Iks expected.
The remedy will only be found in years of development and the
adjustment of many matters affecting Capital and Labour which are
at present in a chaotic or antagonistic state.
FROM what appears to be reliable
information tbe big seam of coul
at Coalmont has been struck in the
upper tunnel. This seam is intended
to bc tapped by the main working
tunnel which has yet to be driven
about a thousand feet. This seam is nf
high grade coking quality and is
sixty feet thick. The (.(ilumbia Coal
& Coke Company has been at great
expense tn open up Iheir mine nnd
make it a grent industrial and producing factor toward building up the
town and indirectly the whole Similkameen district. Tlie success of the
company, which all hope for, means a
very great, impetus to ore mining in
this district.
EVERY day new discoveries of
hidden resources and of new
companies being formed to exploit
them  are reported  from  the  North
country. The railway companies
have been quick to realize the opportunities and are pushing their roads
into the now famous Peace River
country with all speed. Operations
will shortly he commenced on lhe eoal
property owned by the l'euce River
Collieries, Limited, which property is
situated on the Canadian Northern
Peace River line, steel laying mi which
commenced recently west from Oneway.
The work of opening up the mine
is in the hands of Mr. Frank B.
Smith. B.Se., C. & M.E., the company's engineer, who is one id' the
best known mining experts in the
Province, and the men will he in
charge of Mr. AV, 11. Williams, who
lias had thirty years experience in
mining work in various parts of the
world. The property was examined
bv Mr. Smith early last year and he
was very much impressed witli the
wealth of tlie deposit. An analysis
of the eoal showed it to be of the
highest grade yet found in Alberta.
The proximity of the mine to the
railroad, now under construction, ensures cheap and speedy transportation.
THE Lome Creek placers, on the
Skeena River, which have produced more or less intermittently for
years, are under new ownership, and
now bid fair, with intelligent and
persistent working, to eclipse all previous records of gold production.
THE property of the Dry Hill
Hydraulic company, covering t\»o
and one-half iniles of placer leases
on the Lome Creek bottoms, has been
bonded by a syndicate of which H,
Carpenter, B. J. Carpenter, M. P.
Revesbech and Wm. Tuttle constitute
the active heads.
SIX cars of ore shipped from the
Rambler-Cariboo mine early this
year averaged 44 per cent lend and
100 ounces silver to the ton, states a
report from Spokane, where the company's head offices are located. The
report states that the returns from
225 tons of ore netted the company
$16,304, or about $72 per ton, that
later carloads averaged $84 per ton;
and that one car of crude ore netted
A MINING engineer points out that
the method of concentrating
copper ores evolved by the Britannia
mine, on Howe Sound, will practically
revolutionize copper mining on the
Pncifie Coast, where great bodies of
low grade ore exist.
WORK of prospecting is the
basis of the milling industry
yet few prospectors have sufficient
knowledge of mineralogy and geology
to get the maximum good nut, of tlieir
efforts. The most experienced men
are constantly finding minerals and
rocks that they cannot indentify.
They should be able to send these to
an expert for free identification and
for an opinion as to their possible
value, for a prospector is usually unable to employ a mining engineer to
examine every puzzling rock or mineral he may find. Moreover there are
certain rocks much more likely to
contain ores than others. A geological survey should point out tho regions
in which favorable formations are
found, thus enabling prospectors to
concentrate their efforts in promising
localities, and to abandon useless
work in others.
DURING the last seven days of the
past month the Granby smelter
treated 26,190 tons of ore from the
company's own properties at Phoenix,
as well as 211 tons of custom ore,
making a total for thc week of 26,401
tons. During the month of February
the smelter treated 96,971 tons of
company ore, and 886 tons of foreign
ores, making a total treatment for
the month of 97,857 tons. The treatment for the last week in February
was the largest with one exception
which the company has put through
since the resumption of operations
in January, 1912. The blister copper
shipments for the week were 521,000
pounds, which is also a large output
for the converter plant, nnd gives a
total shipment for Februnry of 1,740,-
000 pounds.
Adding the February ore treatment
to that of January gives a grand
total of 200,006 tons'for the lirst two
months of the current year, or an
average of 3,390 tons of ore treated
every 24 hours. At the same rate
of reduction—and there is every reason to believe that this will be maintained, if not increased during the
year the Granby should treat at its
smelter in this eity 1,237,350 tons of
ore during 1913.
The blister copper shipments for
the first two months of the year
were 3,508,245 pounds, or an average daily output of 60,470 pounds.
At the present, rate of production the
Granhy should turn out during 1913
21,074,835 pounds of blister copper.

The Waterloo, under the management of Dennis Clark, produced about
$40,000 in gold. The mine has been

The mines are equipped with a ten-
stamp mill and adequate hoisting machinery, costing about $16,000 which
are driven by water power. A three
mile flume has recently been constructed. There are about 500 tons
of ore on the dump ready for treatment, and the new owners intend to
start work as soon ns possible.

The Gastrograph
Victoria, March 13, 1913.
Dear Sir:—Some of us waste far
too much valuable time in this progressive country by over-indulgence
in eating and drinking; iu talking
and writing so earnestly of its delights; and gloating over lengthy
menus, which some papers so frequently print for the edification of
their readers. In fact, a good knowledge of such subjects is considered
one of the passports to "good society."
The average man is "swelling
visibly" in bis motor from eschewing
every species of bodily exercise; and
eating to much. Under such painful
circumstances a too hasty condemnation of the gastrograph will be more
thnn foolish, especially in a growing
cily like A'ictoria, where you puy so
much for everything nnd don't get
the kind you pay for.
Only fancy the delights of at last
making the grocer antl butcher sit up!
Then consider the cleanliness of the
gastrograph system iu comparison
with tlie present enervating and
greusy regime. The bloated aristocrat would then become "little by
degrees and beautifully less"; and
lhe proud stomached votary of the
motor and tram ear would regain the
use of his legs.
ONE of the most interesting men
who bus visited Victoria recently is Mr. Macfarlane, of Bella Cool*.
Mr. Macfarlane is a tall, athletic
Scotsman, who hns been associated
with the history of British Columbia
for nearly twenty years. Like mosl
of liis countrymen, he is exceptionally
well educated and'well read, anil it is
n very full gripsack in whicii he does
not liml room to stow awny a favorite
"tome." Mr. Mncfitliane was on
board the "Islander," when Ihal ill-
fated vessel struck a submerged rock
and foundered in Northern waters. He
was one of the pioneers uf the Bella
Coola valley, where he bus extensive
hind intents. For several years pasl
he has liml charge of Ihe Government
road work in thai district, and has
given general satisfaction by llic
thoroughness ami skill which he has
brought to benr ou his work. Mr. Macfarlane like many men of executive
ability, is a man of few words, but
when he can be induced to tnlk lie reveals a fund of information which
renders him a delightful and charming companion. He recently slaved
at lhe Empress for two weeks and has
just returned to his Northern home.
"Thnt tramp talks funny, nut'am.
He says he castigated his itinerary
from Boston."
"He only means he heal his way."
