|3E SCOTT ACT
Tlie Week has devoted a good deal of
|aee in the past to a discussion of Pro-
Ebition in general, the "Scott" Act in par-
pular, ancl the recent Provincial Liquor
Icense .Legislation, commonly known as
'Bowser" Act. The Week has written
It of a pretty wide experience, including
Jjiir years personal knowledge of the
['irking of the "Scott" Act in Nova Sco-
K Generally speaking Prohibitive Legation of every kind has been a failure,
|d the "Scott" Act a more conspicuous
jjilnre than any other kind.
* *     *
Tlie absolute failure of Prohibition in
Ee United States, in which it Avas first
|\ed, was clearly demonstrated in a bril-
|int article printed in Pearson's Magazine
August, 1909, and re-printed in The
|eek. This article was from the pen of a
j-11-known divine; a clergyman of the
J)iscopal Church, the Rev. William A.
Rasson, who showed that Prohibition must
S condemned not only because it has failed
accomplish any good but because it is,
■elf, the source of many social and poli-
lal evils. These evils he briefly sum-
[iirized as follows:—
Prohibitory Legislation has never succeeded in abolishing, but it has degraded and demoralized the traffic by driving it into secret places.
Prohibition discourages decent, honourable men from engaging in the business, and thus throws it into the hands
of the most unscrupulous and irresponsible men in the community.
Prohibition has a bad effect on the
drinker, tending to discourage the use
of the lighter alcoholic beverages and
to encourage the excessive use of the
stronger liquors.
Prohibition creates widespread and
habitual law-breaking, and a general
spirit of lawlessness.
* *      *
The "Scott" Act is supposed to be a
fiore scientific instrument than the blunt,
•ohibitive legislation of the United States.
It: has been dignified with the title of "The
|nnada Temperance" Act.    It was first
jied in Ontario more than twenty years
£0, it was tried in many counties, but in
[Very few years was abandoned by all and
Sited a failure.   It was for a long term in
Iteration in Nova Scotia, but never had
lie slightest effect in promoting Temper-
pee.    It did, to the knowledge of the
...•iter create innumerable "blind pigs" and
jj general condition of lawlessness whicii
indo certain sections of the Maritime Pro-
inces a by-word throughout the Dominion,
ne    large    mining   corporation    spent
12,000 in the endeavour to have the Act
iforced for the protection of tlieir work-
leii, and abandoned the effort in disgust
ithont having succeeded in securing a
njrle conviction.
* *      •::-
as no other Province in the Dominion can
boast of. Two were convicted and sentenced to one year's imprisoimient.. At
Lillooet a charge of sale during prohibited
hours being sustained, the presiding Justice ordered a dismissal with a severe reprimand and caution. For not strictly enforcing the law by inflicting^ the prescribed
penalty the commission exercised by this
Justice of the Peace was withdrawn.
* *     *
So excellent is this piece of legislation
that the Ontario Government has been petitioned to adopt it. Xow, what puzzles The
Week is this: If Dr. Spencer and his allies
are sincerely desirous of minimising the
evils of the Drink Traffic and improving
the social conditions of the people, why are
they seeking to arrest the operation of an
Act, which by universal consent is achieving wonders in this direction, and to invoke the aid of one which has been discredited wherever it has been tried ?
* ,   *     *
The world cares little for the particular
Organization or Society which promotes reform; it cares for the reform itself, and
that the Bowser Act is a Reform Measure
of the most far-reaching influence and effect cannot for a moment be disputed. It
is not a little singular that the two districts chosen by Dr. Spencer to test the
question of the Scott Act should be so wide
apart and so diverse in character as are
Chilliwack and Prince Rupert. But Dr.
Spencer gives his own explanation of this
in an interview accorded to the Vancouver
Press.
* tt * V.
He says, in effect, that the}' were
chosen because Chilliwack was about the
best and Prince Rupert about the worst
place in British Columbia. This is a
doubtful compliment in either case, for, if
Chilliwack was doing so well under the
Bowser Act, why not let well alone 'i
and as to Prince Rupert, it remains to
be seen whether the residents of that
splendid pioneer burgh in the West will
quietly accept the label, and tamely follow
at the heels of their traducer. The Week
is greatly deceived if they do not possess
more spirit. In the main they are men
who have made a name for themselves in
other parts of the Province and the Dominion and will hardly submit without
resentment to the imputation.
* «     *
If the Bowser Act had already proved
a failure, or was giving any evidence of
such a likelihood there would be reasonable ground for looking in some other direction for regulation of the Liquor Traffic,
but never in the direction of The Scott
Act. A'o one knows better than Dr.
Silencer that the only consistent Prohibition would be the prohibition of manufacturing. It is as inconsistent and illogical
as it is impossible to prevent the sale.
Until Dr. Spencer and those who act with
him are prepared to make this the issue the
inconsistency of their own conduct disentitles them ifl public support.
* •:<•     »
Meanwhile, The AVeek would respectfully remind Dr. Spencer that it is nearly
a year and a half since he undertook in
writing to reply to the Rev. W. A. AVas-
son's article, through the pages of The
'his is the precious Act, with its up-to-
tc amendments, whicli Dr. Spencer and
allies are endeavouring to foist on
ritish Columbia. They are doing it in
ilation of all the recognised ethics of
blic life, after accepting the plebiscite
ered by the McBride Govev.um-pnt and
sitring the electors that it was giving a
ir chance to express their views oi{ tfee
bject of Local Option. They are (dcJn_g*■"• AVeek \. although.urged.*» '•
in the face of the successful operation j-ie has failed to do so, .mri
the most drastic anil far-reaching Teni-
rance Legislation which has e/er been
acted; a measure so admirable in its
pe and so effective in its adratf-iistration
it in the short space of six months its
t'orcement has resulted in twenty-one
motions which reports up to November,

I of numberless "blind pigs" and a gen-

fidence in Dr. Spencer. But, perhaps, that
gentleman has been collecting data and
preparing his case; if so, the. pages of
The Week are still open to him, ancl the
forthcoming campaign in Chilliwack and
Prince Rupert would furnish an excellent
opportunity for circulating his reply.
MAKE A NOTE
While there may bc hundreds of persons in Arictoria who have seen Ellen
Terry, there are thousands who have not.
It is true that she is no longer young in
years, but it is equally true that she has
learned the secret of eternal youth, and
that she shares with Mde. Patti the honour
of having proved to the world that a true
artist never ages. Some of us can recall
that memorable night, thirty-two years ago,
when she first appeared at the Lyceum
with the Irving Company, and embarked
upon a dramatic career which for length,
brilliancy and association with the most
splendid productions of the time has had
no parallel. For a quarter of a century
Irving ancl Terry were names to conjure
with, ancl the stars were truly the complements of each other. The greatest melodramatic actor of this, or any age, has
tpiitted the stage for ever; his beautiful
ancl fascinating partner still remains to
charm and enlighten. Since the passing
of Irving Miss Terry seems to have renewed her youth, ancl those who avail
themselves of the opportunity of witnessing her performance next Tuesday night
will find that although a veteran she does
not "lag superfluous on the stage." Her
characterization is still deemed by the
London Press to be unrivalled. The attendance is sure to be a record one.
RUGBY FOOTBALL
The Arictoria Rugby Club is probably
stronger this season than for many years;
this is due largely to the prowess of the
redoubtable Gillespie family and to the
"coming on" of several of the younger
members of the team who bid fair to become stars. This is especially true of
McGuigan, Nason and Johnston, who, with
a little more experience will be able to hold
their own with any AVestern men. The
team did well to win at A'ictoria when
they were very short of practice and in
poor condition: they did much better to
draw at A'ancouver after being eight points
behind and having to play against sixteen
men. That they will remain the champions of British Columbia when the last
match of the present season is played there
is little doubt. Now, the question of the
moment is—Money. To enable the boys
to accept the challenge of the California
team to play three matches in Victoria
during Christmas week a guarantee of two
thousand dollars is required. It should be
forthcoming at once in order that there be
no delay in accepting llic challenge. Every
claim of sol'.'-respect and self-interest urges
promptno" in dealing witli this matter.
Victoria could have no better advertisement than that three such notable matches
should be played here. For the sake of
the City and the sport The Week hopes
that the Committee will find tlieir task an
easv one.
scuffle the responsibility onto the shoulders
of a brother minister in Nanaimo, «ho also
failed to come to the scratch. As the
Reverend Dr.'Wasson's article is the ablest
and the most effective deliverance on the
subject, one would think that it would fall
within the duties of a paid secretary and
organiser of a Temperance Movement to
combat its damaging statements. Failure
to do so will hardly strengthen public con-*
THE MAYORALTY
The Week regrets that no progress has
been made towards the selection of a snit-
a§-^ftopfe« .x-Tible man to till  the position of Mayor,
ally tried to    The loss of IMr. AV. E. Oliver as a prospective candidate is a misfortune,    .lust
J.iow great a misfortune Victorians will be
gin to realise when ^jey find that Mr.
Oliver has successfully negotiated a contract with the Esquimalt Waterworks
Company on behalf of the .Municipality of
Oak Bay, thus at one stroke securing a
permanent water supply and depriving
A'ictoria of an important customer. All
this conies among the fortunes of war. The
AVeek has no wish to depreciate the merits
or the claims of the gentlemen who have
entered the field against the present Mayor,
but, unfortunately there is little chance
that either can make any serious inroad on
the solid vote which stands behind him.
The AVeek believes that they are leading
a forlorn hope, and if they could only
realise the true state of affairs they might
be induced to withdraw from the contest
and join forces in support of one whose
claims would appeal to every section of
the community. This is the only way to
rid Arictoria of an incubus which is every
clay becoming more intolerable and costly.
MADAME "X"
The Colonist was horrified at Madame
"X". The Times, with more dramatic insight damned it with faint praise. The
truth is that a powerful but nauseous
melodrama was excellently well rendered
by a good all-round company, which contained no star but which die! well all that
it had to do. From a dramatic standpoint,
and as a piece of construction and stage
representation, it ranked high, but not another word can be said in its favour, and
on every ground it is regrettable that civilization tolerates a class of play which, as
the Times' critic very properly remarks,
is mainly a psychological study of a "poor,
wretched- drug-drenched creature."
LAND PRE-EMPTION
The \7ictoria Times is not fair in its
criticism of the Provincial Government
anent the Land Question. It continues to
rake up cases in which would-be settlers,
'some of whom are said to be educated Englishmen anil some Conservatives, call at
its office and claim that they cannot find
land to pre-empt, and that the Department
is unable to give them the necessary information. The Week repeats that men of enterprise who are prepared to do their own
land-hunting and to "rough it." as pioneers
have to do, have no difficulty in finding all
the land they require. In every district
in British Columbia which is at all accessible there is a Government Agent who is
prepared to give information with respect
to the land in his own district. In many
instances the Department has no alternative but to refer the settler to the local
agent, whereat he occasionally turns sulky
and wends his way to the Times Office to
register a growl because he finds that he
cannot do in Victoria what other men have-
to travel hundreds of miles to effect.
NOT A CHEER
The Colonnst pats itself on the back because Mr. Gilbert, the member for Druni-
mond-Artliabaska, was allowed to enter the
House of Commons and take his seat without a single greeting from either side of
the House, and it somewhat fatuously remarks that "this is tbe strongest proof thai
can be asked to show how accurately the
Colonist gauged th aimer in wbicb the
result id' that election would come to be
regarded after consideration," The Colonist is too modest. The people of A'ictoria
have long ceased to require any evidence of
its remarkable accuracy and marvellous
prescience. Now-a-days nothing happens
that it has not foreseen, although tliere are
times when it fails to take the public into
its confidence until after the event.
SWEET CHARITY
The Christmas Stamp is with us again
—the Stamp which costs so little and
means so much. Who would hesitate to
give tive cents in exchange foi- a badge
wbicb is both ornamental and useful and
which jiasses round us an emblem of the
Charity which is of all things most intimately associated with the Christmas season. When Miss Bowron or Miss Johnson
solicit alms for Charity let every reader of
The AVeek respond. THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, DECEMBEK 3, 1910
At The Street
Corner
By TNG LOUNQBR
A few weeks ago I made some severe structures on buildings which
were being erected in the city. The
criticism was in the interests of public safety and the protection of other
buildings. In my zeal I fell into the
error of supposing that the block being built by the Westholme Lumber
Company, adjoining the Empress
Theatre, was to bc largely a wooden
structure. I am now informed that
the woodwork is simply to form
moulds, etc., for concrete, and that,
when completed, the building will be
as nearly fireproof as possible. As
my mistake was shared by one of thc
chief officials of the City Hall I feel
that I am not deserving of extreme
censure. At the same time I feel
that it is only fair for me to make
this amende.
* *   *
I have frequently complained with
justice of the good ladies of Victoria
who so thoughtlessly disturb the audiences in the Victoria Theatre by getting busy with their wraps and attempting to leave before the performance is actually over. I am sure that
I have voiced a general opinion on
this somewhat delicate subject. What,
however, shall be said for the latest
development? On Mpnday evening
last I noticed ladies leaving in the
middle of the performance and that,
without any attempt to subdue the
noise occasioned by their movement.
I have never gathered that Victoria
ladies as a whole are lacking in appreciation of the claims of "noblesse
oblige," and, as a rule, it is recognised that the favour of free passes
carries with it, at any rate, some
slight claim to courteous recognition, but there would appear to be
some  difference  of  opinion  on   this
subject.
* *   *
It is a common fallacy that in order
to study the latest fashions in hats
one must go to the millinery stores.
The other evening those who attended the cafe chantant had a fine opportunity of viewing two hats of
monstrous proportions, but, alas, not
of artistic design, and certainly not
from the Gage Emporium, which two
ladies wore seemingly for the express
benefit of those who would fain have
witnessed thc performances on thc
stage, but were, perforce, compelled
to take a lesson in feminine head-gear
instead. The exhibition was none the
less conspicuous because all the
other ladies were either in evening
dress or removed their hats when politely requested.
t    *   *
My prediction that the breaking-up
of the Chatham sheep-fold would result in the scattering of the sheep
throughout the residential section of
the city is already verified. I am
daily receiving complaints from the
most select residential districts. And,
unfortunately, the trade-mark of these
unfortunate people is conspicuously
in evidence. The "Red-light" may be j
seen any night on Rockland Avenue,
Burdette Avenue and even on the
Fairfield Estate. The experience of
Winnipeg on which the eyes of the
whole of Canada are now focussed,
and where most distressing and abominable states of affairs have arisen in
consequence of the closing of the
"Restricted District" would seem to
prove more conclusively than ever
that it is impossible to control the
denizens of the Under-world except
by a system of segregation. It is a
nauseous subject and one about which
little can be said in print, but I cannot forbear quoting the illustration
used by Winnipeg's able Police Magistrate, Mr. Mayne Daly, that "it is
better to have one running sore than
a number of ulcers."

conveniences are required, and I hope
that the unsportsmanlike protest of
property owners near the Causeway
will not be repeated, as this is a public
necessity, the presence of which is
not resented in any of the great
European cities.

Have you seen my face? I don't

should strike you, it is hanging up in

That's "The Army and Navy" Tobacco Store, at the corner of Government and Bastion Streets. Mr. Vasco

up some fine pictures, mine included.

The News-Advertiser of Vancouver
is distinctly unsportsmanlike when it
accuses Gillespie of deliberately kicking Roberts—such a suggestion
sounds ridiculous to anyone who
who knows him. The writer of the
article is a three-quarter man and
he appears to think that the game
ought to be played for the benefit of
the three-quarters only. He is wrong
and the sooner he realises his error
the better for himself and the better
for thc paper for which he writes.
Incidentally, it might be better for
the public.
Reverting to a subject which I was
the first to move, that of public conveniences, it is proposed to erect thc
first on Government Street at thc intersection with View. I think that
this would bc a much better place
than the North End of the Causeway,
but, as a matter of fact, several such
Last week I made a few remarks
with regard to gossip. This week I
propose to deal with "Selfishness,"
and, as per last week I have a concrete example on hand. I always
think that Selfishness is a very hard
tiling to define. People are so apt
to mix it up with "Meanness." The
two things are entirely different. Personally, I am selfish; I admit it. The
first personal pronoun is mine all the
time. But I'm not mean. If I happen to have a half in my pocket my
friend is welcome to a quarter. But
I am not putting up all this rigmarole without a reason. I usually introduce something of vital importance with a preface consisting of
spasmodic remarks. What I want to
know is this. Why should the Musical Clubs of Victoria usurp Mis^Alma Victoria Clarke to the prejudice \
of other music lovers in the city, who
may not belong to a club, but who
possibly know as much about music
as the members. On the 21st of November Miss Clarke gave a concert
at Government  House.    So far as I
know the Press were not invited.
There are many people in the Capital
City who would appreciate the opportunity of hearing Miss Clarke at
the Victoria Theatre.

Obstruction of Sidewalks.
So much has already been written
about contractors being allowed to
deposit what they like with the public
sidewalks and roads that^it seems a
waste of time to endeavour to call
the attention of the municipality to
these crying evils. Evidently "they
see not, neither do they hear." On
Douglas street for instance they are
now pulling up the sidewalk in front
of the Vernon Block. For the last
two months the sidewalk on View
street on one side has been done
away with and pedestrians have to
take their choice of walking ankle
deep in mud or crossing to the other
side and recrossing again lower
down. Mr. St. Barbe already wrote
about this same nuisance and many
others. It is not the work itself, it is,
I presume, necessary, but when one
sees these loafers meddling about,
and sees also that for days the work
is left untouched in a busy spot for
traffic, in one of the main streets in
the town, it is high time that somebody, if there is such a person on
the overworked busy staff of the
town council, or whatever the august
body call themselves, saw to it that
thc public are not inconvenienced at
the sweet will of contractors and
that the streets are kept clear of
timber, lumber, and other things.
Let this official also take a walk
down the lower end of Yates street
occasionally and he will also see the
sidew.^ blocked by boxes containing fr||t. I have seen this street so
blocked with fruit boxes on either
side that the humble wayfarer has
had to squeeze by, and with just
room for one person, thc alternative
being the road. Before Victoria can
claim to be up-to-date a by-law had
better be passed regulating the powers of contractor to obstruct thc
streets.

OUR BOYS
BY BOHEMIAN
In thc Victoria Daily Times,
Thursday, November 24th, there appeared an article under the above
caption. It was interesting because it
was so manifestly untrue. It does
not require the eye or brain of an
ex-school-mastcr to know that the
youth of Victoria, generally, are rotten to the core. And yet The Times
says "look at them, how alert they
are. See how their eyes sparkle. Observe the glow of health on their
countenances. Talk to them, and if
you can gain their confidence you
will be surprised." Yes, you will be
surprised, if you get their confidence,
but you won't get the same sort of
"surprise" to whicii The Times is referring.
The Editor of The Times gloats
over the fact that Western Canadian
boys are not like the boys in the Old
Country. "No; they are not, nor
would we have them so"; so says the
Editor of The Victoria Daily Times.
I wonder if he has ever been in the
Old Country. If so, he cannot have
failed to realize that the majority of
boys in England obey their parents
and get badly spanked if they don't.
Out here conditions arc different. The
same state of affairs prevails on both
sides of the line and it is the parents
that I blame for the manner in which
their sons are "dragged up." The
Times says "we know that some people object that boys here are not
disciplined, not respectful, not well-
behaved; that is just where people
make a mistake." Now, in my opinion, this is just where people do not
make a mistake. The average boy
on the Pacific Slope is decidedly not
disciplined; he is fairly respectful (if
he thinks there is anything coming
out of it) and he is most certainly
not well-behaved. The Times goes
on to say "they know that they have
certain rights, and they object strenuously if anyone tries to interfere
with those rights." That may bc so,
but it is a fact which any resident in
Victoria will confirm that they usurp
more rights than they possess."
"They do, however, know bow to
treat a lady" ? I deny this statement
absolutely. There is hardly an unfledged lad in Victoria who knows
enough to take his cheap cigarette or
liis brand-new pipe out of his mouth
when hc passes a lady on the streets
"They have a high moral code" if
The Victoria Times believes this they
■will believe anything. There is no
moral code in thc youth of this
country. It is not a savoury subject
but it is a fact well recognized by
men of the world living in this part
of the country that immorality com
menccs at a very early age. The reasons of this may lie in the fact that
wc have mixed schools. Thc real reason probably lies in the fact that
Western parents are notoriously lax
in  their treatment of their children.
"John Bull" has lately been treating "thc Eton scandal." If Mr. Bot-
tomley were to visit the Western
country he would find a condition of
affairs which* would furnish him
many more columns that he is at present using in exposing a disgraceful
state of conditions in the Old Country.
"Add to this that he has the ambitions, that he sees things from a
broader view than the ordinary, and
that he is generally well educated."
Yes, hc is ambitious, but his ambition
lies in hunting the Almighty Dollar;
he does see things from a broader
viewpoint than the ordinary, and his
scope of vision is so broad that he
cannot differentiate between mud and
cleanliness. I deny the fact that hc
is well educated. We are accustomed to pride ourselves on our system
of education in this Western country. I contend, and always have
contended that the system in vogue
is absolutely rotten. Boys leave
school at too early an age in order
to take on a job. They cannot write
a decent hand, they cannot spell and
they have no idea of "Prompt obedience."
I can quote a concrete example of
this. There was a boy working for
a firm in the city #Ho was given a
parcel to deliver. Tfte man who sent
him gave him ten cents for himself.
Master Boy promptly went down to
the candy store; blew in the ten
cents and left the parcel on the counter. Another genius of the same
species carefully tucked his parcel
away underneath the counter of his
own employer's agency.
I quote two instances only and
these can be substantiated. If necessary I can quote more instances. I
merely make mention of these to illustrate the fatuousness of the Victoria Daily Times in writing the article which it did and in which it
claims that the West is proud of her
boys.
S. P. C. A.
The fourteenth annual meeting of
the Victoria branch ol' the British
Columbia Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals, was held in
the City Hall on Wednesday evening last, Nov. 23rd. In the absence
of the Mayor as cha'-man the post
was filled by the Bishop of Columbia. The annual report was read by
thc honorable secretary, together
with the financial statement certified
by Mr. W. Curtis Sampson. The report congratulated the members on
the satisfactory condition of the Society and the advantage accruing
from the appointment of a paid inspector, who was efficient not only
in the duties of that office, but also
as collector, the result of the work
in this latter case being far in excess
of any year hitherto, the financial
statement showing receipts $1,283.03,
and the expenses to $1,024.90, leaving a balance of $226.83 in bank and
$31.30 on hand, making a total of
$258.13, which balance will meet the
expenses for the forthcoming three
months before thc subscriptions for
iqii will be applied for. The number of cases dealt with (luring the
year are as follows: Horses 95, dogs
12, cats 9, cows 6, sheep 1, chickens
4; total, 140. There were three convictions out of four cases. In the
course of thc discussion which ensued, the following gentlemen took
part: The Rev. W. Baugh Allen, thc
Rev. E. G. Miller, Messrs. Dudley
Crease, A. J. Dallain and C. W. Cameron. A resolution was passed that
the secretary should again address
the council and public on the question of cruelty in the excessive use
of the check rein, it being generally
admitted that horses as a rule, which
have been trained to its use, are to a
certain extent assisted by it, but
used in extreme, is a refinemcrvf of
cruelty, for the animal in stumbling
has 110 means of recovering itself. It
was hoped therefore that this important question should be strongly
urged on the notice of the public,
and those who read these lines having horses and using thc check rein

the committee of this society, to discontinue its use forthwith. Some interesting matter then followed on the
question of lameness in horses, its
cause and cure. Opinions differed
as to whether the trouble was caused
by indifferent shoeing, hard roads, or
both. It was decided on the suggestion of the honorable secretary, that
some members of the committee
should wait upon Dr. Hamilton and
discuss the matter with him before
taking any further steps. The following gentlemen were re-elected officers: Vice-president, the Hon. Justice Martin; counsel, Mr. Snidley
Crease; treasurer, Dr. Holden; hon.
auditor, Mr. W. Curtis Sampson; hon.
secretary, Mr. Thomas W. Palmer.
Mr. C. N. Cameron, having resigned
the post of president, thc Rev. E. G.

take his place. For the committee,
Mr. A. J. Dallain was re-elected, the
Rev. Baugh Allen, Mr. C. N. Cameron, the Rev. W. Leslie Clay, and Mr.
J. Musgrave, were elected, subject
to the consent of the two latter

thanks were passed to the Mayor, the

A LIVE FIRM
Victoria has been accused of being
slack and of not attending to real
enterprises. This allegation cannot
be made with regard to Messrs.
Stiles & Leaver, who have opened an
upholstering business at 805 Fort
street. Mr. Stiles has been established in Victoria for three years while
his partner has had many years' experience with the well-known auctioneers Hannington of Brighton.
Stiles & Leaver combine auctioneering with their other business; they
arc also open to valuations; in addition they arc experts in bric-a-brac
and antique furniture. It must not
be forgotten that they are the best
people in town to restore and "repair
furniture.

A Victorian who is more famed for wielding the pen
than pulling the gun-trigger was out Duncans way shooting a few weeks ago. He had with him a small Victoria
boy to carry bis game bag. Having missed 5 pheasants
in succession, the gunner cried out delightedly as he shot
at the sixth bird: "There, I hit him, I saw the feathers
fly. Didn't they?" "Yes," said the small boy, "they flew
off with the bird."

Come  Friends
Someone remarks that the best advertisers of Canada in Europe are
the visitors from Canada. True, but
what about the many people who are
continually visiting here. Just look
this week at the long list of those
who have crossed the seas and the
great Rockies and have looked in at
our prospects and are to return from
whence they came to report what
they have seen and lo tell of their
impressions. What better press agent could Vancouver wish fur than
T. P. O'Connor? And not only will
the visit of this distinguished journalist and member of the British parliament do this Canada of ours lots of
good, but think of the ultimate effect
of such a visit to the outposts of the
Empire on such a man himself. No
matter how great a man he is hc will
have had bis horizon enlarged and
when hc comes to speak of this country and of this great western province
he will know whereof hc will speak.
A man of his calibre cannot but bc
impressed, for instance, with such a
gathering as welcomed him at the
Canadian Club on Tuesday. He will
go home to the centre of the Empire
and his pen will tell the many of
what he saw and of his impressions,
and who can measure the influence of
such? His Celtic, poetic and eloquent
imagination will paint in the truest
colors what is going on in tllis part
of the Empire and men will listen
and read what he has to say and write
about who would nrt be interested
perhaps by many another. THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3,  1910

PROHIBITION
As It Has Been Proved
if
Writing of "A Sideview of Prohi-1
tion," the Portland Oregonian says:
Vnother fact to bear in mind as to
]tior and Prohibition    is   that   the j
oper use of liquor is no more a
rime or vice than is eating sugar or
eefsteak.   This matter has been lost
ght of by large numbers of persons
the  present  Prohibition wrangle.
he moderate drinking of wine or
eer or whiskey is not a wrongful
ct in world-round  opinion;  excess-
e use is a vice (not a crime) and is
est guarded against by warning, ex-
aple and the lessons of experience.
last numbers of citizens the world
iver use liquors soberly and proper-
The example of these persons op-
>oses the claims of    Prohibitionists,
d they will not accept the verdict
Prohibitionists that they are semi-
riminals or debauchcrs of youth or
ndesirablc citizens. Persons who
buse themselves and liquor by gct-
ing drunk, sometimes "reform" and
ome back to cry for "Prohibition."
tut they arc hardly paragons for bct-
men and women to imitate—men
d women who do not go down into
gutter—although they may pos-
bly be paragons of their own kind,
his is merely an interjectory remark
mid the polemics of the present
ampaign.   The utter futility of Pro-
bition law in large centres of popu-
ition is another and very important
de of thc question—perhaps thc
lost important. There arc many
iber men and women who will not
ncede that their personal liberty
lould bc curtailed just because other
dividuals go the wrong path."
*   *   *
'Life," that caustic critic of the
pocritical and irrational, discuss-
g Prohibition and kindred crudes in the direction of attempting
lat has been proven in practice to
h
be impossible—the making of
men moral by legislation—says: "Do
not these illogical and intemperate
enthusiasts realise that there has never been worse discredit brought on
the Christian religion than by men
who have used, or sought to use, the
law and its apparatus to constrain
their fellows to behave in accordance
with their conception of the Galilean
standard? These big Protestant .organisations of the Christian Endeavour sort tend overmuch toward Puritanism. They seem in danger of forgetting religion in their zeal for prevention, which is an enormous mistake. Voluntary righteousness has
will behind it and goes ahead, but
compulsory righteousness avails little ancl the necessary minimum of it
is quite enough."

"Prohibition in Kansas City, Kansas, does not prohibit—it has never
prohibited," declares Mayor A. Gluck.
now serving his fourth term as chief
magistrate of that city. "Prohibition
in Kansas has proven a calamity.
There is more drunkenness in Kansas
today than ever. In Topeka, Gov.
Stubbs' home city, you can scc more
drunken people on the streets in one
day than you can in St. Louis in a
week. The depreciation of property
in Dodge City is alarming. Along in
1886, before the prohibition laws wcre
enacted by the Legislature, there was
erected a large building that cost
above $45,000, aside from the ground
on which it was built. It was bringing in an income of more than $4,500.
Then prohibition was adopted. The
building was vacant. It could not
be rented. There was no demand
for buildings. Twelve years ago I
bought the property for $4,000, less
than one-tenth of what it cost. Now
that building is paying  12 per cent.
on $4,000. This is no exceptional
case. Property shrank in A-aluc to a
similar extent all along the line. Prohibition has simply held the State
back in the march for prosperity
more than all other causes combined.
*   *   *
"Never since prohibition became a
law has it been enforced. There is
more whisky consumed in Kansas
than there ever was. The building
of which I spoke a while ago was an
opera house. After the performance
I always made it a point to lock the
doors and then next day to go through
the house to search for lost property
to restore it to its owner. The whisky
bottles I found under the seats was
appalling.
*     *     *
"One can find Jamaica ginger bottles all over the town. They arc
thrown in thc streets after they are
emptied of the whisky, and the glass
from these bottles proves very expensive to automobilists, as thc glass
punctures thc tires.
"In my city there are no open saloons or joints. I have tried to enforce the law, though .1 am jiot in
sympathy with it. But the whisky
is sold just the same. It is sold by
bootleggers, and it is impossible for
the city to stop it. It is impossible
to stop the sale of whisky in Kansas,
and 1 believe it is impossible to enforce prohibition anywhere.
"When the liquor was sold by the
drug stores shortly after the open saloons were closed, there was much
drunkenness among boys. One boy
would buy a bottle of whisky, and after taking his drink he would pass
it around. In a while thc supply
would be exhausted, and a new supply would bc obtained by another
boy. And they w.Stlld keep tllis up
until all were intoxicated.
"I find that it is easier and cheaper
and better to control the liquor traffic when we have the wide open saloon than any other way. When prohibition goes in effect your revenue is
decreased and the cost of policing the
city is increased many fold. In Kansas there is but one crime known to
the Prohibitionists, and that is the sale
of liquor."
Most Military City
There has been considerable discussion as to which city is "the most
military city in Canada." Guelph has
laid claims to the title, but as a matter of fact Shcrbrooke, P. Q., has
best claim to the distinction in proportion to population. With only
16,000 population it possesses the following  corps  with  establishment:
nth Hussars "D" Squad       70
22nd Field Battery     in
53rd Sherbrooke Regiment   401
54th Carabiniers de Shcrbrooke.. 401
No. 6 Co. A.S.C   106
No.  6  Co.  F.A. and  M.C     90
1179
It will bc therefore seen that Shcrbrooke  has  1179 men under arms, a
most  remarkable  distinction    for    a
...
city of its size.

Big Land Deal
One of the biggest land deals in
the history of this district is now
pending and if successfully consummated will involve the sale of the
well known ranching properties of
James Frisken, William Palmer, Jas.
Aird, Joseph Bulman, George Fraser
and Richard McDonald, all in the vicinity of Stump Lake.
A big syndicate comprising coast
and foreign capital is negotiating for
the land and it is understood that the
price will range from $5.00 to $15.00
per acre as conditions vary. The
members of the syndicate will meet
in Kamloops tllis week to formally
consider the proposition. Bonds have
already been taken on the properties.
It is the plan of the promoters to
organize a horse breeding ranch and
the interested ranches arc well adapted to that industry. Imported stock
will be brought in and hundreds of
brood  mares put on the land.    Thc
institution will be one of thc greatest in the West and it is rumored in
sonic circles that the federal government is interested inasmuch as a
breeding farm for army remounts
has been authorized.

"A Broken Idol."
j While catchy music, pretty girls
nd scenery, lots of life and good
nanagement are absolute essentials to
comedy with music, to make it suc-
essful in this day and generation,
alented and accomplished principals
lust also be provided before a play
an command the earnest attention of
ie theatre-going public of to-day.
lt was with this important feature
1 mind that Mr. William F. Mann,
et about to organise the company
hich is to present "A Broken Idol"
the Victoria Theatre on Monday,
>ec. 5th, and it was because of the
olicitation with whicii the selections
ere made that this play was so suc-
essful during its run in Boston, New
ork and Chicago. Manager Mann
iter the greatest effort, has suc-
aeded in sending the company on the
)ad, thereby enabling other cities an
pportunity of witnessing what was
tiled by one of Chicago's critics
hicago's best musical show.
Among those who will be seen in
e present production are Perle
arti, Don A. Macmillan, Jack West,
^dney Stone, Dan Russell, Dorothy
rey, Edyth De Valmaseda, Madge
irson and many others. The cele-
ated Gus Sohlke's selection of show
•A chorus girls and ponies are in
perabundance and lend no small
nount of support to the excellent
incipals who have been a universal
t everywhere "A Broken Idol" has
:en presented.
Helene Lackaye
Helene Lackaye, who is supporting
ax Figman in "Mary Jane's Pa,"
used bitter disappointment to about
ty girls during rehearsals in NeAV
ork, they seemed to be laboring un-
r the delusion that they were
anted as chorus girls. In getting
_r costumes together Miss Lackaye
quired the services of a maid, as
rs had suddenly left her, and the
tress' lares and penates needckl at-
ntion. What should be more natlir-
than to advertise? But she stated
the ad., that the applicants should
11 at the Theatre on Wednesday be-
ore io o'clock. Not realising that
er advertisement would lead anyone
believe that a theatrical engage-
ient was offered, Miss Lackaye came
ripping down to the Theatre at io
clock to find Max Figman in a
ghly excited state, showing a bevy
f females of all descriptions out of
he stage door.
"Go away from here!" he shouted,
I'm too busy to see you. There
n't any chorus with this show and
ou wouldn't any of you do if there
vas one. I don't want to see you at
ill," and seeing Miss Lackaye, "You
end them away; I told them we were
lot going to have a chorus but they
won't believe me," and the excited
ictor, who had not allowed the girls
o explain their errand, hastily side-
tepped.
Miss Lackaye had some difficulty
n finding a girl who did not want to
fo on the stage, but at last a regular
naid,. one with aprons and civility,
ppeared and got the job.
New Grand Theatre
It has not been long since Stephen
Jratton was stirring the country in
he title roles of "Ben Hur" and "The
3rince of India." It was he in fact,
■/ho created the role in the latter of
}eneral Lew Wallace's masterpieces
nd there were few who would have
een wild enough to guess at the time
hat he was playing away from his
atural bent. That he was, however,
e is now demonstrating daily. He
as forsaken the legitimate and gone
for vaudeville and, save the mark,
doing comedy in such style that it
fast making him famous. Mr.
ratton, with a capable company in
ipport, opened a few weeks ago in
incinnati on the Sullivan and Consi-
ne "time" in a comedietta, wholly
ique,   entitled  "Locked  Out  at 3
A.M." and will appear here Monday,
at the Grand.
It has been three years since Var-
don, Perry and Wilber have gone before an American audience, vaudeville or other, they having toured
Europe and Great Britain since their
last American appearance. Their act
is a typical mixture of American
songs, dances and music generally and
it is counted one of the best of its
kind produced by American vaudeville.
One would go far to find in vaudeville a more versatile and altogether
charming little woman than Kitty
Edwards. GGifted with a delightful
personality, a wealth of ready native
wit, a very fetching singing voice and
about everything else that's captivating.
Joe Lannigan's business is telling
stories, funny ones, but some of his
best humour is entirely incidental—
it is Joe himself. He is elongated to
a degree; built like a rail fence and,
with his make-up on, looks to the life
the part of a "rube" undertaker.
Leo and Chapman are offering
something new in vaudeville—a fraci-
cal novelty, whichever way one
wishes to say it. The title of their
hodgepodge of nonsense and acrobatics is "Wanted—A Donkey." It is a
riotous mixture of song and dance and
talk with some very clever work on
the horizontal bar thrown in by way
of good measure.
TROPICAL TRIFLES V.
(By Onlooker).
It may amuse, and possibly astonish my friends to hear that I have
been suffering lately from an attack
of excessive virtue, or perhaps more
correctly speaking from the attacks
of excessive morality which assail me
on every side. A moral reform wave
is an unmitigated nuisance to the
ordinary sane individual who has a
reasonable chance of blowing a trumpet with the cherubims and seraph-
ims of an allegorical Kingdom Come.
Even if this tiresome wave does not
leave absolute disaster in its wake it
often subjects the said sane indivadu-
al who lias a right to the exercise of
free will to considerable annoyance
and no little temptation to lose his
temper, O pious persons who seek to
lay down rules that are to steer the
wicked along the straight and narrow
way to salvation, ye are guilty of provoking many of us to righteous indignation!
A few days ago I went with my
friend Socrates to see a play which
was powerful, emotional, and* above
all splendidly acted. The next day a
daily paper expressed the hope that
never more would the public be enticed to witness such an improper
display, of the worst vices of human
nature! I had a horrible thought
that my moral fibre must have become warped, and my mind degenerated, but as my friends all thought
the play was excellent I felt somewhat reassured.
I interviewed my good friend Socrates about it. He told me not to
worry, excessive virtue being inspired
by several causes such as evny, hatred, malice, and too many drinks
though such is not generally supposed to be the case. It was Sunday
evening, and he asked me to stay and
amuse myself by listening to his disposals of advice to various dissatisfied people. As I always enjoy the
role of onlooker, I accepted his invitation with alacrity.
The first visitor was a bell boy
from the Empress Hotel. He wore
a bandage over one eye and looked
very pale and frightened. Sunday
was his Jonah day.
"Young man," said Socrates to the
trembling youth, "I see thou hast
been in grievous trouble."
"Yes sir," replied the knight of the
buttons, "it was like this. I was
called up to the room of an awful
big Englishman, and he wanted a
whiskey and soda. I told him most
respectful that it was Sunday and in
this country he couldn't have a whiskey on Sunday."
"Quite  right,"  I   chimed  in,  "you
did your duty,   but   what   happened
next, sonny?"

didn't get wise and bring a milk jug.
And I had to quit my job because I
can't make enough money for a living these days."
"My boy," said Socrates, "I can
give yojt very little advice. Either
you must do as the American gentleman told you, that is to say, 'Get
wise,' or else you must go and work
for a living."
There was something about thc latter part of my friend's advice that
Buttons did not seem to like, and
muttering   something   about   getting
wise alright, alright, he took his cap
and departed.
The next visitor was a very prim
lady who was obviously in a furious
temper. She stated that her husband suffered from Sunday Paralysis
four times a month. This unfortunate state of things was brought
about by the fact that her spouse
considered it necessary to drink
enough whiskey on Saturday night
to last him till Monday morning.
Socrates pointed out that his wife
ought to be more sorry than angry
at her husband's weakness.
"It's not that," screamed the lady,
"but I've been fooled all round, I
have! They told mc if I voted for
Mayor Morley that my husband
could never get drunk on Sunday,
and he's been drunk on Sunday ever
since! Just wait till I get hold of him!
I'll  scratch ■"
"Put your husband on the water
wagon," I suggested, "leave your
happy home and go and live at
Sooke."

Editor Thc Week:
Dear Sir,—In your last week's
issue of your paper 1 sec you mention that some Duncans fruit growers
did not realize but 35 cents per box
for choice apples, which same apples
retailed in Victoria for $1.75. There
is something wrong here, some injustice and robbery done the grower.
You havc done good work in ferreting out and exposing injustice. Might
I ask you the favour of ferreting out
the robbery in connection with thc
fruit and exposing it in your paper.
I sent 15 boxes of line pears to Victoria and only got returns for 40
cents per box. Hut after freight, commission, etc. was paid I did not realize 5 cents per box. Yours truly,
JOHN' SPEARS,
Corlield P. O., B. C.

Members' Creed
"Believing the British Empire to
stand for justice, freedom, order,, and
good government we pledge ourselves,
as citizens of the greatest Empire in
the world, to maintain the heritage
handed down to us by our fathers."
The announcement concerning the
formation of The Over-Seas Club has
been received with as much enthusiasm throughout the Commonwealth
of Australia as in Canada, South Africa, and other sections of our worldwide Empire. Since last week we
havc received 801 entries, which bring
our total membership to 5,412, while
1,012 branches are in process of formation.
The list of those who have kindly
offered to act as local secretaries of
The Over-Seas Club which we publish
from week to week is in all probability
the most remarkable collection of
names ever obtained by any organization. Our list of further branches this
week embraces almost every section of
the habitable globe, from thc Solomon
Islands to Omsk, in the heart of
Siberia, including such widely separated places as Java and Bulawayo,
Jebba, Nigeria, and Shanghai, Simla
and Manaos, Brazil, Hobart, Tasmania, and Potosi, in the little-known
Souths-American Republic o£__ Bolivia.
The United. States of America continues to furnish us with a large number of recruits, and branches of our
rapidly growing-organization are to
be established in Canon City, Colorado, Allendale, New Jersey, Dayton,
Ohio, Charlottctown, Virginia, and, in j
fact, in almost every States of the
American Union.
In fact, there is no section of Australia which has not already enthusiastically greeted the coming of The
Over-Seas Club.
A gratifying feature of the more recent applications for membership of
The Over-Seas Club is the number of
those of Australian, South African,
and Canadian birth who are anxious
to join our ranks.
Strictly Non-Party
In one or two instances members
of The Over-Seas Club in Canada
think in the course of time our club
will be used for political purposes.
From Penetanguishene, Ontario, a
member writes:—
"I think the scheme a splendid one,
so long as the Club's branches are not
used for political purposes. We are
all politicians here. I have heard this
question discussed, regarding The
Over-Seas Club, lt might be turned
into a political lever, which would
rob the scheme of much of its good.
A rule emanating from headquarters
disparaging the discussion of any political question at any club meeting
might obviate this."
It is hardly necessary for us to draw
attention to the underlying objects of
The Over-Seas Club—Non-Political,
Non-Sectarian, Irrespective of Class
Distinction, lt is therefore clear that
in no sense can The Over-Seas Club
be regarded as a political organization with objects other than those
clearly set forth i nour rules. Members of The Over-Seas Club should
give their support to every movement
which has as its object the drawing
together of thc peoples now living under the folds of the British Hag, irrespective of party.
The Coronation of his Majesty King
George has been definitely fixed for
June 22. There remain, therefore,
seven and a half months for us to
reach a membership of 25,000 British
citizens. With the splendid results of
the past two months' work we should
have little difficulty in reaching this
goal, but it will bc necessary for every

The Jewel House will be reopened
and the Regalia will be on view on
and after Monday next, 7th inst., under the usual regulations. Spencer,
Lord Chamberlain.—It is with this
notice, printed in large black letters
on a white card affixed to the gates
of the Tower of London, that the
authorities intimate that the Crown
jewels are once again in the Wakefield Tower, after an absence of several months, during whicli time their
whereabouts has been k'ept a profound secret. Since the Jewel Room
was last open to the public great
changes have been made in its structure and fittings. It has become a
strong-room, containing many ingenious devices, which are calculated to be sufficient to resist the attacks of the most scientific burglars
the world has ytt known. A new
stone flooring has been set, and the
great stone walls have been strengthened. A grid made of the finest tempered steel, with bars placed closer
together than was the case with the
old cage, guards the plate glass regalia show-case. Automatic steel
ton will close over the jewels, have
been fitted. The slightest pressure
upon any part of the grid will cause
great gongs to ring in various parts
cases, which at the pressure of a but-
of the tower, while the touch of a
button will cause the great iron doors
of the Jewel Room to close automatically.

The Prince of Wales
The work of selecting the committee which is to undertake the arrangements for the investiture of the
Prince of Wales at Carnarvon Castle
next July has practically been concluded by the Duke of Norfolk and
his advisers. For the investiture of
the Prince of Wales there are few
precedents to refer to, but it may be
stated on the best authority that the
Carnarvon ritual will be largely based upon that for the ceremony which
took place at Westminster on the occasion of the investiture of the Black
Prince in 1343. In many ways, however, the ceremony will be modernised. In this connection it is interesting to recall the ritual as it was
performed so many centuries ago at
Westminster. "The Prince- is presented before the King in his sur-
coat, cloak, mantle of crimson vel-.
vet, and girt with a belt of the same;
when the King putteth a cap of crimson indented and turned up with ermine and a coronet on his head, as a
token of principality; and the King
also putteth into his hand a verge of
gold, the emblem of government, and
a ring of gold on his middle finger, to
intimate that he must be a husband to
his country and a father of his children." It is understood that the
Queen will take an important part in
the ceremony.

Flag of Empire
It is reported that the idea is being
discussed in Government circles of
the creation of an Empire flag. The
main, if not the only, difficulty, appears to be wthether the idea should
be deferred for discussion at the Imperial Conference, or whether it cannot be dealt with within the next few
months, so that the foundation of the
flag might be contemporaneous with
with thc Coronation of the x^iig and
Queen.

SOCIETY
University Fear of Parliament
There was an animated discussion
at the Senate of Cambridge University recently on the reform proposal
to substitute a House of Residents,
composed chiefly of the teaching
body, for the Senate in dealing with
certain matters. This requires a parliamentary Bill, and Professor Kenny
said that they had had fair warning
of the intentions of a large and active body of M.P.'s and it would be
unwise to place themselves within
their power. Mr. Htiddlestone said
that appeal to Parliament would
probably precipitate a raid upon the
slender resources of the University
for the benefit of thc poor student.
Professor Jackson warmly supported the report.
Sir W. Arrol's Wedding
Sir William Arrol, the famous engineer, who built the Tay and Forth
Bridges, was married on Wednesday
at Doune, Perthshire, to Miss Robertson, of London. Sir William, who
is head of the firm of William Arrol
and Co., was born in 1839. For ten
years until 1906 he represented South
Ayrshire in Parliament as a Liberal
Unionist.
(Continued from Page 10)
On Wednesday, November 30th,
the Rev. E. G. Miller united in the
bonds of holy matrimony Miss Cla-
renda Victoria Berryman and Mr.
Ephraim George Jeeves. It is a long
time since St. Barnabas has seen
such a smart wedding; the sacred edifice was profusely decorated with
seasonable flowers. The bride was
given away by her uncle, Mr. W.
William Berryman. She appeared at
the altar dressed in a very smart
tailored coat and skirt; her hat, a sky
blue beaver trimmed with ostrich
feathers was admired by many of her
numerous friends. At the ceremony
she was wearing an extremely handsome diamond and sapphire brooch,
the gift of the bridegroom. The latter was supported by Mr. J. Berryman. The full choir was in full attendance, Mr. A. Longfield officiating
at the organ. Mrs. Berryman held a
reception at her house after the ceremony for the benefit of the relatives
of the happy couple. Mr. and Mrs.
Jeeves left on the evening boat for
Vancouver and the Sound cities,
where they will spend their honeymoon. Returning here they will take
up their residence at 2533 Blanchard
Avenue. Those who were fortunate
to see the magnificent display of
presents whicii wcre on view at Mrs.
Berryman's house will have no difficulty in realizing thc popularity attained in Victoria by Mr. and Mrs.
Jeeves.
