ATESMAN AND ORATOR
The Eastern despatches just to hand tell
the death of Viscount Wolverhampton,
ter known as Henry Hartley Fowler,
•merly Secretary of State for India and
lerly Lord President of the Council.
•-ere'are in Victoria not a few Wulfrun-
|is to whom this is an interesting an-
tinccment, although apparently not of
Bcient importance to secure notice in
. local press.   If the deceased states-
Iin had been a Senator from Wyoming,
la Congressman from Wisconsin, or even
[fraudulent Bank President, the item
Iluld have been good for half a column;
|.is do the Victoria daily papers keep
public posted on English news.   Vis-
|unt Wolverhampton Avas a statesman and
orator.   Twenty years ago he Avas, with
Is single exception of Mr. Gladstone, the
Latest platform speaker in the United
lingdoni.   It is an open secret that from
175 to 1885 he was excluded from the
Jberal platforms in Birmingham because
(ere was not room for tAvo such stars as
|>seph Chamberlain and himself.    Later
the more aggressive and constructive
|itesmanship of the former carried him
the front.    The parting of the ways
line when Mr. Gladstone introduced his
lebratcd Home Rule Bill.    Mr. Cham-
|rlain went to the Unionists, Mr. Fow-
reinained with the Liberals.    His re-
rd soon folloAved.    His first Govern-
Jent position Avas that of Financial Sec-
Itary to the Treasury, an office Avhich he
[led in 1880; his first Cabinet position,
[resident of the Local Government Board,
llloAved by that of Secretary of State for
lidia.    His administration of the latter
fice brought him into great prominence,
Ipecially in connection with the   cele-
fated Chitral Expedition.   At this time
Ir. Fowler stood very near to the Pre-
liership, and not a few Liberals Avould
ave preferred his leadership to that of
ord   Rosebery.     Tlieir  judgment  Avas
krified when that brilliant but erratic
latesman bolted after a short term of
Fice.    By this time the health of Mr.
lowler Avas becoming enfeebled.     With
pree score years and ten upon his shoul-
lers he had lost his vigour.    Moreover,
leanings toAvards' Whiggism had be-
■nne  more pronounced,  and  the latter
pars of his life yielded nothing neAV and
ptliing aggressive.   But he never lost his
pld on the seat Avhich he had represented
rith such masterly ability for forty years,
1 when he finally decided to accept a
rage he adopted the title of Viscount
Wolverhampton.   Only a few Aveeks ago
lie cable brought thc news of the death
If his Avife and there is little doubt that
lhe sad bereavement curtailed the life of
lhe   veteran  statesman.    An   interesting
lhapter could be written of the romance
If Viscount Wolverhampton's love, conrt-
lhip and marriage.   Suffice it to say that
lie came to Wolverhampton young, poor,
Imknown, the son of an obscure Metho-
|list parson.    He proposed for the hand
|if the daughter of Wolverhampton's first
|\layor  and wealthiest  iron-master;   his
liuit was indignantly rejected by thc irate
tather, who practically told him to "get
lint."   He got out and made good.    In six
|years he Avas Mayor of AVolvcrhampton
|ind thc leading lawyer in the tOAvn.   Six
|vears later he aviis the leader of every
■public movement  and  Chairman of the
ISchool Board.    Two years later, Member
Parliament for a borough which for
lhalf a century had returned Charles Pel-
|ham Villiers of Corn Law fame.   A feAV
■years before, Mr. Fowler hail joined forces
■Avith Mr. R. AV. Perks, also the son of a
[Methodist parson, and for years the firm
[of Fowler & Perks were knoAvn as leading
|Parliamentarian lawyers.    Viscount AVol-
[verhanipton has gone to his rest full of
[years and honours;  a man of the highest
[integrity, of supreme ability and of re-
[markable force;  a man who had no per
sonal friends and yet Avhom everybody respected and many feared; a natural
orator and a constructive statesman; prevented only by temperament and a certain ingrained adamant from attaining
the highest position in the public service.
It is probable that if Mr. FoAvler had not
been born a Methodist he Avould have
established more friendly relations Avith
the great Nonconformist party which
never trusted him fully because of his
antagonism to Disestablishment. There
are not half a dozen men now remaining
avIio belong to Mr. FoAvler's school, and
none who advocated the principle of Free
Trade with the ability and insight Avhich
distinguished his utterances. He Avas to
the last an uncompromising opponent of
Tariff Reform, and died, as he lived, in
the full belief that Cobdenism and Salvation Avere synonymous terms.
THE NAAS VALLEY
Less than a year ago thc Naas Valley
first came intp prominence through the
efforts of a brave little band of pioneers
Avho went up there to stake land ancl
finally succeeded in locating 60,000 acres.
They brought back a good report; told of
a valley 200 miles long and ten to fifteen
miles Avide, Avhich Avas fertile, with alluvial soil, lightly timbered, traversed by a
river and Avatered by numerous tributaries.
Later on other adventurous spirits fol-
loAved the lead and by the time that the
first (10,000 acres had been disposed of to
Mr. -lames S. Rear of Vancouver a second
section of 90,000 acres Avas taken up by
Mr. Morton Griffiths, the Member for
Wednesbury. Later some 200,000 acres
Avere staked so that, it is probable that not
less than half a million acres have been
located to date. Only a few days ago the
local press told of a railway from the
Pacific tide-waters up the Naas and
through to Edmonton, there to connect
Avith the Canadian Northern Railway.
Branch lines are also contemplated into
the Naas from the Skeena by way of the
Kitsumkalum, and from Stewart and the
Bear River country by way of Bitter
Creek. Only this Aveek particulars have
been published of the out-fitting of a party
to prospect the Naas for minerals under
the guidance of Mr. Joseph Varin, and
iioav the latest information is that Mr. J.
S. Rear has succeeded in inducing the
Dominion Government under the direction of tlieir engineer, Mr. G. A. Keefer,
to blast out the rocks and boulders which
impede navigation in the Naas so that
small craft will bc able to navigate the
river for a distance of two hundred miles.
Thus in one short year has a neAV country
been practically discovered, and it is only
one of the many virgin tracts in the
Northern part of Britisli Columbia Avliich
will within a few years become settled
and prosperous.
ANOTHER IMBROGLIO
At thc time of writing the City Solicitor
has not given his opinion as to the right
of the Mayor to veto the appointment of
Mr. O. H. Topp to conduct tlie surveys of
the Sooke Water Scheme. The decision
mav not touch the real point at issue or at
any rate the point which most concerns
the ratepayers, viz.—whether the Mayor
has the legal right to veto a decision of
the majority of the Council. The Week
never thought very highly of Mr. Topi
a City Engineer, but it does knoAV that
he is a good surveyor, and that the action
of fhe Mayor, if it he not illegal, is at any
rate unjustifiable and vindictive; but it is
all of a piece with his conduct of City
affairs, ancl shoAvs Iioav impossible it is
for a self-respecting body of men to work
with him. It also shows the wisdom of
the course adopted by the Provincial Government in restricting his authority to
routine business when passing remedial
legislation.
A PUBLIC LOSS
The retirement of Mr. R. W. Clarke,
Chief Clerk in the King's Printer's Department, is a decided public loss and
will be deeply regretted by all avIio had
been accustomed to do business with a
painstaking and conscientious public servant. Mr. Clarke has been in the employ
of thc Provincial Government for twenty-
three years and leaves with the good will
of all his fellows. The King's Printer,
Lt.-Col. Wolfenden, C.M.G., and the Hon.
Dr. Young, Minister of Education,
headed a delegation of Mr. Clarke's colleagues to present him Avith a silver tea
service on the occasion of his retirement.
Both gentlemen spoke in thc highest terms
of his personal character and public services, and in order to place on record some
tangible expression of their esteem they
presented Mr. Clarke with the following
address:—
"Robert Wilson Clarke,
Chief Clerk of the Government Printing Department:
"Dear Sir,—Your fellow-workers in
this department beg to express tlieir regret
that you are leaving the pleasant associations so long and so mutually enjoyed, to
undertake duties elsewhere.
'*AVo Avish you with all our hearts the
utmost success and prosperity in your vocation, and trust that you may long enjoy
thc best of health, and Ave take this opportunity of presenting you Avith this silver
service as a slight token of our esteem and
good Avishes. On behalf of the employees
of thc department, yours very sincerely,
"R. Wolfenden, King's Printer.
"Victoria, Feb. 28, 1911." '
A FOOLISH QUESTION
In addition to writing foolish editorials
the Victoria Times sometimes asks foolish
questions, but rarely one more foolish than
that Avhich appeared in its columns on
Tuesday last: "As Ave are all so British
Avhy not imitate the British Government
in the policy Avhich has made Britain
great ? No one can deny that Great Britain
is every day increasing her trade, her
Avealth, and her prestige, and yet she has
Free Trade." Perhaps unconsciously the
Times ansAvers its oavii question in the last
phrase "and YET she has Free Trade,"
for there are not a feAV people avIio believe that Great Britain's trade and
Avealth, if not her prestige, Avould increase
more rapidly if the Tariff Reform programme Avere adopted. But thc ansAver to
the foolish question in the Times seems to
be that it assumes parallel conditions in
Canada and Great Britain, which alone
would justify the comparison. Moreover
thc Times is not sincere or candid because
no responsible Liberal leader and no responsible Liberal organ has yet arisen to
advocate Free Trade for Canada. Indeed,
the one outstanding feature of tho Laurier
regime has been the abandonment of the
Free Trade platform and thc adoption of
moderate Protection as a national policy.
TRAMWAY EXTENSION
When the Jordan River project of thc
B. C. E. Ry. was before the ratepayers of
Victoria The AVeek strongly advocated its
acceptance because it Avould lead to the
extension of the Tramway System
throughout the Saanich Peninsula. At
Ihat time the manager of the Company,
Mr. A. T. GoAvard, guardedly stated that
some $250,000 would be spent for that
purpose. It now appears that thc most
optimistic expectations are to be exceeded
as within a year from date there will be
a modern, Avell equipped railway in operation betAveen Arictoria and Deep Cove,
a sheltered harbour in the extreme north-
Avest of the Saanich Peninsula. Later on
there may be branches east and west to
the water front, but iu any event something like tAvo hundred square iniles of
territory will be made tributary to the
neAV railway system. Just what this may
mean for Victoria only the future can
tell, but it Avill mean the settling of every
acre of cultivable land in the district traversed, and the locating of thousands of
homes in close proximity to the raihvay.
Thc first fruits of this rich harvest is already being reaped by those people avIio
look ahead a little, and in two days haA'e
bought up all the acreage which Grant &
Lineham have placed on the market. This
has been easily the most successful sale
of the kind ever held in Arictoria and goes
to show that the people are only waiting
for transportation facilities to secure
beautiful locations for summer homes.
With the groAvth of the city this tendency
Avill increase every year. The highest
authority in the Province has stated that
within four years ATictoria will have a
resident population of 100,000. In vieAV
of the building permits being issued, and
the realty transactions recorded daily, his
estimate would appear to be far too
modest.
THE LATE SESSION
The session of the local Legislature has
just closed and the Colonist has given a
very full and intelligent synopsis of the
business transacted. The most notable
measures have been the Coal Mines Act,
the Land Act, the Railway Charter Act,
the Automobile Act, the University Bill
and the Health Amendment Act. It is
almost appalling to read that no fewer
than seventy-eight hcav acts Avere passed
during one session, yet none of them Avere
superfluous and all should contribute to the
public weal. Naturally the Liberal Press
is unable to Avax enthusiastic over such a
legislative record and it especially regrets
the absence of an effective opposition.
With respect, however, to this objection
it is only fair to say that what the Opposition has lacked in numbers it has more
than made up in intelligence, application
and fairness. Mr. II. C. BreAvster, thc respected Member for Alberni, has greatly
enhanced his reputation by the able and
business-like manner in which he has
criticised the Government measures. Not
once has he departed from the beaten track
of fair, incisive argument and there is
little Avonder that his methods have proved
distasteful to a press which found its
apotheosis in the swash-buckling member
for Delta. Mr. Hawthornthwaite has
fully maintained his reputation as a
capable debater, and tliere will be many
regrets that he is abandoning the field of
political adventure for tho much less exciting and more prosaic calling of mine
management. Mr. Parker Williams will
iioav plough a lonely furrow, but he must
plough a little better next session if he
would bold his own. On the whole it may
be said that the Legislature has done good
work, has fully lived up to its standard
of a business Administration, and if no
great reputations have been made, it is
satisfactory to know that none have been
lost.

Supplement which gives a concise and reliable revieAV of A'ictoritt Real Estate and
Financial transactions. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MARCH _, 1911
It is a pity that all the late municipal muddle should have occurred
just at the time when the line weather set in for good and there became
urgent necessity for the water-cart.
Of course, it is hardly fair lo blame
anyone for the dust nuisance just yet,
because there was nobody to take the
responsibility of putting tllis much
needed public utility to use. And in
view of the fact that matters reached
such a climax that even the clock
stopped because cheques were in a
similar quandary, it is not to be wondered at that nobody has undertaken
the watering job on an off chance.
But by the time that this appears I
suppose that all financial crises will
have passed, in whicli case I would
beg to call the attention of the city
Fathers pro tem. to the dust nuisance, which is thus early beginning
to give evidence of its existence.
* *   *
Archaeologists,      theologians    and
divers others have puzzled their
brains for many centuries as to the
exact spot where the original Noah's
Ark landed. Another Ark of more
modern date discharged her cargo at
the Outer Wharf last Tuesday when
the German steamer "Uarda" landed
a few pets for Mr. French of Saanich,
who is already the proud possessor of
a fine menagerie. A curious individual and a camel were both interested
observers of a soliloquizing lion until
thc former became aware of the proximity of his fellow spectator, when he
stood not upon the order of his going, but "got:" I didn't see the camel
myself, but I am told that it sadly
needed a bath; which may have accounted for the individual's hurried
exit;  but again  he may    havc    had
other reasons.
* *   *
I wonder where else in the world
one could experience the gorgeous
weather which wc have been having
lately. It has been weather of the
kind that makes life worth living for
its own sake alone. I am quite
aware that to talk about the weather
is rather a confession of incompetence, but I am doing it for three reasons. First of all because it is calculated to make other (-eople who are
not so happily situated as we arc
jealous, and a jealous neighbor is always calculated to enhance one's own
self-respect. They say that imitation
is the sincerest form of flattery; it
may be, but I contend that jealousy
is a far more soothing form for the
person flattered. .Se :oiully, I make
mention of the weather because my
whole literary outlook has been utterly disorganised bv lhe municipal
muddle, which has practical1, depr-v
ed me o'' a target for my shafts, and
thirdly because it really has been
such fine weather that it deserves a
Vt'Old of commendation.
* *   *
But why should it be spoilt by the
inconsiderate owners of property?
Just after I had turned in my copy
last week I noticed a hideous pall of
smoke arising from the chimneys of
the late Driard; now the emporium
of David Spencer & Co. To-day the
sky is being marred by smoke pouring forth from a chimney which I
cannot quite locate from my window,
though I have a very shrewd idea as
to where it is. There is no necessity
for this kind of thing. If furnaces
.are properly tended and good coal is
used the amount of smoke allowed to
escape is hardly noticeable. But the
smoke nuisance, like the dust and thc
water problems, is on a level with the
poor and is always with us.
* *   *
But it is not quite right to say
that, because here in Victoria there is
a noticeable absence of the poor.
True enough there arc plenty of
people who are "broke," but they
starve not neither do they thill (incidentally, they thirst not at all). But
I should like to know how many
people in this Western country have
any conception of what a shim is;
what real poverty is. Rags they
know, but often the ragged man has
a bigger wad than the man in broadcloth. Hunger they know, but that
is due to the fact that restaurants do
not grow in the wilds and game is
sometimes scarce. But real, downright poverty—that's another story.
I ahvays havc liked the opening sentence in Marie Corelli's book "The
Sorrows of Satan." "Do you know
what it is to bc hungry?" This is the
hunger that is intensified by the sight
of food in the stores and the lack of
coin in the pocket. This is the hunger of want in the midst of plenty
and is different from thc hunger of
want in the midst of destitution.
* *   *
1 suppose thc above remarks were
inspired by the fact that it is past
dinner time and I don't want to leave
the office till I have completed my
weekly toll of lamentations and complaints, fancied and otherwise. Unfortunately for me there is somewhat
a scarcity of these this week. I
think, however, a word might be said
as to the condition of thc Inner Harbour at low tide. I do not remember
in days gone by that there was such
an unsanitary odor arising from the
harbour as at present prevails at certain hours of the day and night. We
used to get, and still get, fragrant
breezes from the chemical works
when the winds were propitious, but
this is an entirely different kind of
smell, and not half so wholesome.
The smell to which I refer always reminds me of that exquisite passage
in Barry Pain's "In a Canadian Canoe," where he describes the Smell
of thc Bad Pork Chop whicii wandered through the marble halls from the
kitchen to thc banqueting hall, gaining strength on its fell errand, as it
approached to slay the mighty Agamemnon. Possibly you haven't read
this classic from thc pen of Pain, in
which case you have missed a treat,
but one, which to be thoroughly enjoyed, should be indulged in when reclining in a Canadian Canoe on "The
Backs" during a fine summer's morning stolen from important lectures.
* *   *
However, 1 am wandering from my
subject whicii is the state of the Inner Harbour at low tide. It is an
unsavoury subject seeing that it must
almost certainly have something to
do with—drains. I remember a juvenile acquaintance of mine, a blood
cousin, who strongly objected to his
youthful peccadilloes being made the
subject of discussion at the dinner
table. When the conversation threatened to turn in that direction hc
would turn his eyes to thc head of
the table and softly say, "Take care,
Mother, or I'll talk about drains."
The mother, being of a refined and
sensitive disposition would refrain
from "giving her Benjamin away,"
and "Drains" as he was nicknamed,
was left thc triumphant possessor of
the field.
* *   *
But 1 am not of a refined and sensitive disposition. I am essentially
coarse and vulgar when I think that
there is anything to be gained by
being so. I have said things in print
which caused shudders, but which
have resulted in the work at present
progressing on the south-west corner by the Post-office. An shall I be
deterred by such a word as "Drains?"
I trow not, What is the use of endless columns in the daily papers advocating a general civic clean-up; of
garbage-can promises; of fulminations
from the Provincial and Municipal
Officers of Health; of impassioned
pleadings from the pen of the writer for The Woman's Page in the Colonist and of solicitous suggestions
from   that   of   Miss   Ruth   Cameron,

when right in front of our premier
hostelry tliere exists what may at certain periods be styled a public sewer?
Is there nothing that can be done?
If at this season of the year when
the air is cold and health-giving, this
sickening smell is a nuisance, what
will it be in thc dog-days?
* *   *
It is satisfactory to note that the
City By-law with reference to the
selling of alcohol with "bona fide"
meals has been declared illegal by the
Court of Appeal. If ever there was a
nonsensical state of affairs it existed
when it was forbidden to sell alcohol
under such circumstances between the
hours of midnight and dawn except
011 Sunday mornings. Mr. Justice
Gregory held that this was quite
contrary to the spirit of the Provincial Liquor Act and in consequence
of his decision it will now be possible to entertain at an after-theatre
supper party without having to
"switch off" on to lemonade half way
through.
+   *   *
1 have never yet had any explanation of the existence of the planks
which are so carefully laid along thc
side-walks in some of the principal
streets, so I presume that there is
nobody that can give one. I have
racked my brains to find a reason,
but find none. They arc a nuisance
and seem to serve no purpose, so I
beg to propose that they be abolished.
* *   *
I should like to know what is the
correct form of procedure under the
following circumstances. A street
car is proceeding down the track overladen with its human freight; lack
of room compels many of thc passengers to stand on the back platform; the conductor is busy near the
fore end of the car collecting his
fares. There you have your stage
setting and the "dramatis personae."
Xow conies the problem. A passenger
on the rear end wishes to get off
at the next stopping-place but is unable to attract the attention of the
conductor. What is he to do? Common sense says "Ring the bell for
himself." This was done the other
day on a Government St. car, whereupon thc conductor immediately rang
the bell to keep the car in motion
and compelled the passenger to travel
a block beyond his destination, and
when the latter eventually descended,
remarked that he would "teach them
kind of fellows to ring the bell for
themselves." Was the conductor right
or wrong? If the former, wherein
lies the passenger's remedy? This is
a question which puzzles the

take it in good part when we offer them this line recipe for
prettily shaped mouths:—Repeat at intervals, during the

Miss Kathleen Parlow
On Monday evening last Miss Par-
low gave a recital at the Victoria
Theatre and was assisted by Mr.
Karel Leitner, It is a pity that Miss
Parlow had not been heard of before,
or she would have undoubtedly have
drawn a better house. Considering
her age there is little doubt that thc
young violinist will have a distinguished future if indeed she does not
rank with the very best violinists of
her sex. She has splendid command
of the bow and her tone is really
marvellous. More facile execution
will come with experience. It is no
exaggeration to say that in many respects Miss Parlow reminds one of
Mde. Norman Ncruda at the same
age, and positively no higher praise
could be given. The following is thc
programme she  rendered:—

Polly of the Circus
On Tuesday night Victoria renewed
| thc acquaintance of the Circus but not
of Polly, for the young lady who es-
Isayed the part bore no resemblance in
| form,  shape  or  comeliness  to   Miss
Ada St. Leon, who played the title
|role on a former occasion. If the
[truth must bc told the company was
I third-rate and not one member possessed more than the most elementary
I knowledge of acting. The play is too
(thread-bare to stir the emotions and
■ the young parson lover more stilted
Ithan the ordinary stage parson of his
lkind. The only feature which re-
Ideemcd the play from something
■worse than puerility is the whiff of
lthe sawdust which the circus brings.
IThe worst and thc best which can be
Raid of "Polly of the Circus" is that
|t is perfectly innocuous.
Nance O'Neil
On June 18th Victorians will have
|ui   opportunity    of    seeing    Nance
)'Ncil in "Thc Lily." This is a long
Ivay ahead, but those Avho saw Miss
■O'Neil  play Queen  Elizabeth at the
(Victoria Theatre fivc years ago will
■not bc willing to miss thc chance of
seeing her again.   In my opinion she
lis one of the  foremost actresses of
(the age and in her own line ranks
(text  to  Edith Wynne Matheson.  In
some parts she has no superior and
■according to the best information obtainable has scored an enormous sttc-
jcess  in    an    adaptation    from    thc
■French.    Miss O'Neil comes with thc
vholc   of   the   company   which   supported  her  at  the  Belasco  Theatre,
|N'ew York, where the play ran for over one year.
The New Grand Theatre
By far the best turn at the New
iGrand this week is that contributed
lliy the Alex Brothers who arc really
[wonderful equilibrists and present
some exceedingly clever novelties.
[Eddie Girard provides the laughter
Ifor the evening in his role as an Irish
[policeman, being intensely comic in
Ihis monkey metamorphosis; during
lthe whole of thc time that "Dooley
lind the Diamond" is being staged the
house is kept in a continual roar of
Internment. Tom Dempsey has been
jetting good receptions as a monol-
loguist of an amusing type, but the
■same cannot bc said of Lefevre & St.
lohn,  who  present  an  extraordinary
playlet  entitled  "The    Show    Girl," j
which entirely fails to justify its ex-1
istence or to give them an excuse for !
being    nn  the    boards.    The    One-
Stringed  Violin   has  appeared  again
and   with   the   saxophone  forms   the |
equipment of Billy Barron who plnys
them both with much skill.
Romano's Theatre
"At the Duke's Command," a film
from   the  celebrated  Imp   Company,
proved a drawing card in the middle
of the week.   It is not every day that
the spectator is taken into the torture
room of mediaeval  times and  I  for
one   duly  appreciated  the   privilege.
The picture dealing with the Newly-
weds, in this case Mr. and Mrs. Dare,
was one of the most comical I have
seen and was received with shouts of
laughter.
The Majestic Theatre
Dickens Redivivus has been a great
attraction lately at Mr. Christie's
house and scenes from "Thc Christmas Carol," which were most faithfully and cleverly represented accounted for over-flowing houses. The
misfortunes that attended thc nias-
queradcr who fancied himself as a
policeman provided material for a
series of pictures that wcre funny in
the extreme, as did those of the heroic (?) life-savers at Coney Island
beach.
The Crystal Theatre
Though wc haven't had any chance
of seeing air-ships in their material
form we havc been privileged many
times to see them on thc screen but
never to better effect than at the
Crystal this week, when pictures of
Henry Farman with live passengers
were on view. The views of the
clearing of the wreckage of the Welsh
train were very interesting. For the
rest Manager Jamieson has been providing his  usual  Ai  attraction.
MOMUS.
James T. Powers in "Havana."
Here is one "Havana" which does
not havc to be located on the map.
In fact it is here, there and everywhere—at least every place which is
designated as a "big city," for tllis
"Havana" is the musical play which
was imported from the Gaiety Theatre, London, and which ran for over
two years in New York. James T.
Powers is the star and it is with Mr.
Powers in the stellar place and surrounded with thc original company
of ioo people, including the famous
little much heralded Hello People,
People Hello octette that the Messrs.
Shubert will offer for the play at thc
Victoria Theatre next Tuesday, March
7. "Havana" was pronounced the most
conspicuous musical success ever imported from England, excepting the
"Mikado" and "The Geisha." Doubtless much of its success on this side
has been due to the comedy element
which is chiefly the result of Mr.
Powers' book, for Mr. Powers revised
the English script. Leslie Stuart,
composer of "Florodora," is responsible for the score of "Havana" and a
quartette of well known writers turned out thc book and lyrics.

who brings with him a complete English company from Terry's Theatre,
London, will come to the Victoria

From the list of plays announced

the other arc entirely foreign to his
humor. His impersonations hurt no

inferior wit. His fantastic imaginings
compel a welcome from all who have
a sense of humor. His characterisations arc so funny, so obviously exaggerated for the specific purpose of
ordinary experience, and yet so instinctive with a perception of thc foibles and fancies of human nature, that
we laugh with them as well as at
them, and jubilantly recognize in
them a clever study of the ridiculous
side of our neighbors.

SAILING  IN   FEBRUARY
BY BOHEMIAN
I wonder where in Northern Seas
it would be possible to thoroughly
enjoy sailing in the month of February. I find in the daily press that
frost and snow prevail all over the
northern section of the continent;
indeed, there is just a breath of frost
whitening the grass in our own city,
but that is all.
Probably those poor benighted
Easterners who up to date have heard
so little about British Columbia, will
think that I am joking when I say
that on the last day of February I
took a trip in a small launch from
Victoria to Comox and enjoyed every
minute of the time. The sky was as
blue and the sunshine as bright as in
early summer days, and when night
fell the stars shone so clear that it
never became dark, and the absence
of the moon made no difference to
navigation.
It was a flying trip, all done within
a couple of days, so I travelled by
day ancl night. There was literally
not  a  ripple   on   thc  water  and  no
breeze except that made by the motion of the boat. It was warm
enough to sit in shirt-sleeves on deck
and to sleep with the cabin door wide
open. It was so exhilarating that I
found three square meals a day insufficient to satisfy my rapacious appetite.
The trip was a procession of one
through straits and narrows, bounded
by near views of wooded islands and
distant glimpses of snow-capped
mountain peaks. The clarity of the
atmosphere was a remarkable circumstance well illustrated by the fact that
from Nanoose Bay I got a clear view
of Mt. Baker. From Nanaimo one
could see the smoke of Vancouver
and thc low-lying Point Grey, flanked
by the Hope Mountain Range, which
in perspective seemed to flank Vancouver ancl New Westminster. There
wns an unbroken ridge stretching away to the north-east, easily distinguishable beyond Bute Inlet. On
thc west lay Vancouver Island with
here and there a snowy peak, but
mostly covered with dense forest.
Words could never describe thc
magnificence of the scene, and I do
not know where it cotild be duplicated.
The remarkable combination of warm,
bright sunshiny weather, green
islands and snow-clad mountains, all
in such close proximity, furnished a
unique spectacle, impressive and awe-
inspiring in its grandeur.
But there were other things to attract the attention, and they impressed me greatly. Between Victoria and
Comox I counted more than a hundred craft of various kinds, ranging
from the Indian dug-out and the tiny
Japanese fishing-smack to the big
coal carrier speeding to Union Bay,
and the stately C. P. R. Ferry forging its way from Vancouver tc Victoria. Thc number of Japanese fishermen scattered among the Islands is
surprising and on this occasion they
were all fishing for cod, with herring
as a bait, and apparently meeting with
success.
Perhaps, the most gratifying evidence of industrial activity was to be
found in the numerous booms of logs
being towed from northern forests to
the mills of Victoria and Vancouver.
It is only when one gets out into the
Straits and meets with as many as a
dozen booms a day being brought
down, each boom probably averaging
a million feet that it is possible to
realize how silently, but certainly, thc
forests arc being devastated and the
lumbering industry developed.
Then one met scows loaded with
coal from Union Bay, Nanaimo, Boat
Harbour and Ladysmith, all being silently dragged to the fiery furnaces
awaiting them in Victoria and Vancouver, to say nothing of the large
tonnage consumed daily at thc Tod
Inlet Cement Works.
There were ocean liners at all the
shipping piers waiting for coal for
the south, another medium through
which an enormous tonnage of raw
material is being constantly exported
for the benefit of our cousins across
the line.
The surprising feature of this glorious trip was to be found in these
many evidences of increased activity,
still furthe' emphasized by the number of passengers at every point where
train or boat touched. The little
steamer "Iroquois" was loaded not
only with freight, but with passengers
for thc Islands, and the requirements
of the trade have so far out-grown
its capacity that I should think a
larger boat would be put on the run
in the very near future.
I do not sec what is to prevent thc
Islands of thc Straits of Georgia from
becoming a Western Paradise. They
offer every attraction of climate,
scenery and access which could be
asked for in a summer retreat. There
is nothing to be compared with them
elsewhere on the Pacific Coast. The
population is increasing beyond all
expectation and with visions before
mc of the gallant President of the
Council I would not hesitate to say
that it is no slight compliment to be
the Member for the Islands; and it
will some clay be a very proud position for any public man to occupy.
It is not so long since Victoria was
known as "Victoria the Sleepy," and
well deserved the title. It is now
generally admitted that she is waking
up and from frequent opportunities
of observing what is going on all over
the Coast line of Vancouver Island,
especially on the East, I havc no
hesitation in saying that the activity
of Victoria is spreading, and that one
of the richest and most beautiful
islands in the world, blessed with unrivalled natural advantages is coming to its own, ancl coming fastcr
than most people are aware of. Among
the many remarkable advantages
which it enjoys not the least is that
of furnishing the npportunity for
what can fairly be called a summer
trip in the month of February.
JOSEF HOFMANN
On Thursday night the Victoria
Theatre was packed to hear Jo;*ef
Hofmann, the celebrated Polish pianist. It is satisfactory to be able to
say that for once a really appreciative audience assembled in large numbers, for so often the arrival of
"quality" on the stage, means a decrease in "quantity," in the auditorium, This brief paragraph is not intended to convey a criticism o' the
wonderful performance which so
many were privileged to hear on the
evening in question, it is rather written in a spirit of acknowledgment to
one of the greatest living exponents
of the old masters. Mr. Hofmann ;s
above all a devout admirer and skill
ed interpreter of Chopin, and perhaps his finest work on Thursday was
his   rendering   of    that    composer's
masterpieces. At the same time special mention must be made of his
rendering of Rachmaninoff's "'Prelude
in G. Minor," which is so full of the
vein of romance and mysticism wh'di
runs throughout the Russian school.
Another delightful item was tne playing of the paraphrase from Tschaik-
owsky's "Eugene Onegin," by Pabst
which concluded the recital. One oi
the most pleasing features oi Mr
Hofmann's performance wa. the en
tire modesty with which he conduct;
ed himself. He is absolutely fret
from those affectations which so oftei
seem to be inseparably connecle
with musical geniuses, and which thj
enthusiasm of his audiences migh
well justify.
Miss Corelli's First Play
Miss Marie Corelli has signed i
contract to write a short play, to b'i
called "Tlie Sedan Chair," for th
London Hippodrome, an invitation ti
do so having been given to her li;
Sir Edward Moss and thc director?
The subject which Miss Corelli ha
chosen for her play is the suffraq
question, and her view is entirely o'[
posed to the Suffragette policy.
Savage Attack by Rook
A remarkable incident has just oi
curred in the village of Oakhill. \
Mr. A. Hockey, an inhabitant of tl
Parish, was crossing a street a roc
suddenly attacked his face, and wit
such persistence that he had gre
difficulty in beating the bird off. Tl
rook inflicted wounds on his fa*
which drew blood.

of agricultural lands (secured both by Government land
grants or by purchase at low prices), ancl many others
will be developed and sold for the benefit of Shareholders,

The profits accruing on these vast assets through the
construction of the railroad and increased population will
attain such enormous values in the aggregate as to be
scarcely realizable by those unacquainted with the subject.
As an illustration, amongst others, the town of Saskatoon a few years ago only valuable as Prairie land, has
now a population of 16,000 and rapidly increasing with
present Real Estate values out of all proportion to their
original cost, this also applies to all other cities and towns

A SPLENDID PROSPECT
.So often have we heard that Victoria is on the verge of an era
lof unparalleled prosperity that many people are inclined to take a
I reiteration of this statement with a very large pinch of salt.   But
InOAv at last the statement can be made definitely and not indefi-
[nitely, from a reliance on facts and not on theories.   It is not the
eye of a dreamer that sees the enormous expenditure of $28,000,000
outlined for the next three years.   The following table of estimates
is convincing enough, and if any error is made it will not be on the
side of an extravagant  computation  but  rather  from  a natural
hesitation to take into consideration all that is highly probable, but
I not actually certain.
Municipal expenditures ordered      $ 1,000,000
Prospective expenditures, including City and Oak Bay
water supply, new sewerage—Esquimalt and
elsewhere, schoolhotises, paving Esquimalt Road,
etc., outside of city limits, etc          1,000,000
New Government buildings          1,000,000
Tramway ancl telephone extensions and improvements          1,000,000
Dry dock         3,000,000
Shipbuilding plant and shipbuilding         5,000,000
Railways, including terminals for C.N.R. and E .& N.       6,000,000
Private buildings        10,000,000
$28,000,000
In a recent issue of The Week reference was made to the item
I of $1,000,000 for Municipal expendituws ordered for such purposes
j as Asphalting, Sewerage, AA'aterworks, High School, Street Widening, etc., and there can bc little doubt that a million dollars is a
very conservative estimate. The prospective expenditures include
such sums as $125,000 for Esquimalt sewerage, $100,000 for Oak
Bay Water supply, $75,000 for paving the Esquimalt Road beyond
the city boundary, and $30,000 for one new school. The above
mentioned projects will account for about one-third of the total
sum, leaving $670,000 for new permanent paving, sidewalks, the
Johnson Street bridge ancl other necessary improvements.    The

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MARCH 4, 1911
new City Hall, if it is to be an established fact, will have to be
provided for as an extra.
In considering the third item it must be remembered that in
all probability a new court-house will be provided, in which case
a million dollars will be found too little for all that is contemplated.
The welcome news that the B. C. E.Ry. is about to extend its
lines through the Saanich Peninsula in addition to effecting other
improvements and extensions, together with the estimated cost to
be incurred by the B. C. Telephone Company in laying its wires
underground, entirely justify the fourth item on the fore-going list.
A three-million-dollar dry dock should be sufficient security for
an estimate of $5,000,000 to be expended in ship-building and the
necessary plant. We know that the Canadian Government is going
to build ships and it is as certain as the sun that some will be
constructed at Esquimalt. It is highly improbable that the amount
specified in the fifth item will be found sufficient to last for three
years.
The Railway estimates include the cost of the C.N.R. from
Victoria to Barkley Sound together with the sums to be spent on
its car-ferry terminal and initial deep water facilities, as well as
the unavoidable expenditures which will be made by the E. & N.
Ry. as a direct result of the opening up of the Songhees Reserve.
Three years ago the building permits for Victoria for the first
two months in the year totalled $200,000. The record for January
and February 1911 shows that permits to the value of $334,395
were taken out, and in view of this material increase the sum of
$10,000,000 whicii is intended to cover Oak Bay, Saanich and
Esquimalt as well as Victoria is extremely conservative.
The above items only deal with improvements and extensions
in the immediate vicinity of Victoria. No mention has been made
of the probable business prosperity which will undoubtedly accrue
to the Capital as a result of the extensions made by the E. & N.
Ry. outside the City, and the building of the Cowichan Lake Railway. $2,000,000 may be set down as the probable expenditure on
these and similar works. Neither has mention been made of the
enormous amounts to be spent by the Canadian Collieries Ltd.
Of the vast sums whicii will be spent during the next three
years by far the largest portion will be put into circulation right
in our midst, the biggest outlay being for labour and material
which can be supplied locally. In view of the above mentioned
facts it would seem impossible for anyone to hold any pessimistic
views as to the future of the Capital of British Columbia.
IN THE REALTY MARKET
Business has been brisk during the past week. Undoubtedly
this is due to the fact that a commencement on the Island section
of the C.N.R. has been made as well as to the important announcements in connection with the new Dry Dock at Esquimalt and the
now assured extension of the B. C. E. Ry. along the Saanich
Peninsula.
Local agents report that inquiry is greater than for many
months past, and they all expect a record volume of sales during
the coming spring.   Among the latest sales noted are:
A piece of property on Humboldt on the south side of Douglas
street with a 190-foot frontage has been sold for $35,000. This
property four years ago was purchased for a sum in the neighborhood of $3,000.
A piece of property with a frontage of 75 feet on Pandora ave.,
and 75 feet on Cormorant street has just been sold to a Chinese
investor for $21,000.
Mr. F. Landsberg of the Empire Realty company reports the
sale of property amounting in value to $61,000 for the week ending-
yesterday, the sales being as follows: Lot 1007, situated on Fort
street, on which Styles & Co.'s garage is situated, formerly owned
by Mrs. Vigor; the southwest corner of Fort and Vancouver
streets, with two houses thereon, purchased from Mr. H. J. San-
den by investors from the Northwest.; lot 99, situated on Burdette
avenue, formerly owned by Mr. Walter of Salt Spring Island; lot
8 in the Finlayson estate, situated on Government street, formerly
owned by Chang Hooie, et al.; lots 3 ancl 4 on Craigflower road
opposite to Burleith park, formerly owned by W. D. Davies, and
lots 5 and 16, situated on Craigflower road and Connaught street,
formerly owned by Mr. McKenzie.
Messrs. Currie and Power have been responsible for a number
of small sales including two lots in Esquimalt—one near
Langs Cove for $1,500 and one on Admirals Road for the same
amount; two lots on Bank street for $600; a lot on Hillside avenue
for $1,500; a lot on Haultain street for $600; a lot on Hillside avenue for $1,000, an acre of land and a six-roomed house in the Esquimalt district for $3,500; a lot on the corner of Princess avenue and
Vancouver street for $1,650; a lot on Southgate street for $1,250,
and two lots on Howe street for $1,600.
Mr. Watson Clarke Sells Property for $100,000
One of the largest recent sales of inside residential property
has just been put through the market, fifty-five acres in Oaklands
being sold by Mr. Watson Clarke for $100,000. The property comprises good level land and it is understood to be the intention of
the purchasers to subdivide and again place on the market. This
sale is indicative of the growing interest in acreage at the north
end of the city.
Fort Street Transfer
An interesting sale in the business section is reported in the
changing of hands of the southwest corner of Fort and Blanchard
streets formerly the property of Mr. J. E. Smart and syndicate.
This corner realized $55,000.
A lot on the north side of Douglas street near Bay has been
sold for $5,500.
A large number of residential lots are changing hands daily
and there has been considerable demand for Esquimalt property
since the announcement that a large drydock was to be established
on the harbor.

Big Deal on Douglas Street
An important real estate deal was put through this week when
the St. John's site on Douglas Street passed from the control of
the trustees to Messrs. T. R. Cusack and R. L. Drury, the consideration being $157,000 ,the trustees still retaining a lot and a half at
the back of the church. The new owners have a 240-foot frontage
on Douglas street, 120 on Herald and 120 on Fisguard, and it is
understood that their intention is to subdivide the property and
replace it on the market in the form of business lots.
Other Transfers
A piece of property on the north side of Yates street, just
above Blanchard, with a sixty foot frontage and a depth of 120 feet
has been sold to a syndicate representing the Victoria Country
Club for $34,500—at the rate of $575 per front foot.
The news concerning the B. C. E. Ry. extension has had the
effect of creating an immediate demand for property in the neighbourhood of Burnside Road with corresponding increase in prices
asked. Throughout the Saanich Peninsula values are rising and
numerous sales are anticipated.
Residential Property
Residential property continues in strong demand. Messrs,
McPherson & Fullerton report that thirty lots in the Belvedere
sub-division which were purchased during November and
December at $425 each have been resold recently at $650. The
same firm a few days ago bought the property known as Oak Park
and placed it on the market as a sub-division on Saturday, all 20
lots being sold that day at a price varying between $800 and $1,000
per lot. In the sub-divisions known as Hollywood Park and Hollywood addition practically all the lots have been resold once, and
in some instances twice at advances of $300 per lot. The Fairfield Farm Estate recently placed on the market as a sub-division
is rapidly being disposed of, numbers of lots on Woodland road,
Carnsew, Durham, Clifford, Brook and Walton streets changing
hands, and changing a second time at prices varying from $800 to
$1,110 per lot.
A GILT-EDGED INVESTMENT
The attention of The Week has been called to an advertisement
in the current issue which offers a gilt-edged investment to those
who have a few hundred or a few thousand dollars to spare. The
Pacific Coast Agency is handling the five per cent, debenture stock
of the Canadian Northern Railway. It is selling at 105, which for
an investment of this class is decidedly cheap. There is no risk and
the rate of interest is nearly double that which is realized in England on similar investments. Anyone wishing to purchase these
debentures can obtain them by applying to the Pacific Coast
Agency, 804 Dominion Trust Building, Vancouver,
B. C. E. R. INCREASE IN TRAFFIC
Passenger traffic on the local lines of the B. C. Electric Company for the first two months of the year showed an increase over
that of the corresponding period a year ago of no less than thirty-
eight per cent. The aggregate number of passengers carried was
1,069,082 compared with 774,475 in January and February, 1910.
The figures for the two months were:—
January, 1911 546,092       1910 415,150
February, 1911   522>99°       r910 359.325
Total—February, 1911.. 1,069,083       1910 * 774.475
SIR WILLIAM MACKENZIE IN A NEW DEAL
It is announced that a Canadian syndicate headed by Sir William Mackenzie, which already owns the electric railway and lighting system in Monterey, Mex., has acquired a concession from the
Government for the construction of a large dam across the Balasas
River and installation of a large hydro-electric plant in the State of
Guerrero. The contract for the construction of the dam has been
let, and the work will cost approximately $3,000,000. The Mackenzie
syndicate is also said to be negotiating for the purchase of valuable
railroad concessions.
EIGHTY PER CENT OF THE "TIPS" ARE WRONG
(Saturday Evening Post)
"Probably eighty per cent, of the daily stock exchange speculation is inspired directly and indirectly by tips," says a conservative
review; and everybody knows that eighty per cent, of the tips are
wrong. The people who play the tips are wrong. The people who
play the tips know it better than anybody else, for it has been
demonstrated to .them by experience. Why, then, do four-fifths of
the rank and file of ordinary speculators keep on playing tips? The
reason is that before they took to playing tips they played on their
own judgment and lost money so rapidly that they finally resorted
to other men's judgment. Most men of the common garden variety
of speculators, who really keep the game going, enter the market
with a sage opinion of their own. They feel sure their opinion is
sound, but the market acts contrary to it; lience, the market must
have been .manipulated. After several trials have demonstrated
that their own opinion is worthless, they seek tips that may give a
•clew to what big manipulators are doing. The tips prove worthless,
also; but, their .own judgment being of no account, they must either
keep on playing tips or get out of the game. This is why the tip
industry flourishes perennially, providing much advertising for the
newspapers and maaaiy tolls for the telegraph companies.

BUILDING BUSY IN VICTORIA
Two Apartment Blocks
The demand for residences, which is so strong that it can't be
supplied, is the explanation those in closest touch with the situation
give for the fact that the attention of many investors has been
turned to apartment houses. It is pointed out that scarcely a year
ago that Victoria didn't boast one of these establishments. Now
there are several taxed to their capacity. The Mount Edwards,
corner of Vancouver street and Coutt's way, opens this week. And
now there are two more being planned on which work will be
hurried. One of these is to be situated on the southwest corner of
Fort and Quadra streets. It will be of substantial construction,
three stores in height, and cost about $20,000. Mr. Max Leiser is
financing the enterprise. The other, slightly smaller, will be
located between Douglas and Blanchard streets, Dr. Milne being
back of the venture.
New Hotel Projected
The majority of the contractors are looking forward to the
announcement of a number of important business block propositions
in a few days. J. L. Skene, who is just finishing the new Y.M.C.A.
home, corner of View and Blanchard streets, stated yesterday that
before the week is ended there will be tenders asked for the erection
of a hotel which will rank among the handsomest of the city. He
was not in a position to furnish the details as yet. The Jamieson
Brothers, it is reported, proposed constructing a commodious block
on Courtenay street, on the property adjoining Woods Bros, new
garage. While there is no news up-to-date as to when the replacing
of those structures destroyed in the recent Government street fire
will commence it is believed that some definite steps will be taken
by the owners of the property shortly. With the commencement of
operations there it is assured that there will be a general shuffling
among old established business firms. As an illustration it was
reported yesterday that Challoner & Mitchell were only awaiting
such a move as that indicated before preparing modern quarters on
Douglas street for occupancy.
Contractors Busy
The Westholme Lumber Company, Luney Bros., Parfit Bros.,
McMurray & Kinney, Malcolm & Dinsdale, W. A. Gleason, in fact
all the contractors of prominence are as busy as convenient. The
former are just completing their Government street, situated below
Johnson street. They expect that it will be ready for opening by
May ist. They are engaged with many smaller jobs as well as some
large enterprises in northern British Columbia. Luney Bros, are
finishing several contracts, notably the Woods Bros.' garage, the
addition to the Victoria West school, and the improvements to the
David Spencer store. Parfitt Bros., McMurray & Kinney, and Mr.
Gleason have a large number of homes in hand while Malcolm &
Dinsdale are busy with the V. & S. new offices and the clearing of
a portion of the burnt area preparatory to the extension of View
street through to Government street.
LOCAL MARKET
In the local market, American Canadian and Alberta Canadian
Oils have again been the centre of activity, both advancing to new
record figures—the former to 58/2, and the latter to 21^ cents.
On the American Canadian properties, work is still being pushed,
but oil has not yet been struck. Insiders are still optimistic as to
the ultimate outcome, but we personally believe this is a good time
to take profits on these shares,
Portland Canal issues have lagged somewhat during the past
month, although Portlands themselves are always more or less
actively traded jn. We understand this company has financed all
of its present needs, and the stock should do a little better from
now on. Red Cliffs at present prices, we believe, are too high, and
would advise taking profits at the market.
There has been an active demand of late for Rambler-Cariboo
with sales recorded as high as 43 cents. Reports from this property just to hand, are of a very encouraging nature, and shipments
whicii were started a short time back will be greatly increased
during the coming month. A new railroad into the property is
assured, and will greatly facilitate shipping both from the Rambler
and the adjoining property, the Lucky Jim.

Dominion and Provincial News
A New Camp
The Similkameen is to have a new
town is situated on the property of
the Columbia Coal and Coke Co.,
and promises to be a prosperous coal
mining town.
A Fitting Tribute
The citizens of Kingston arc urging the Government to purchase and
preserve the old home of Sir John
A. Macdonald, which is situated at
Hay Bay, near the city.
Railroad Must Pay
Thc action by Clarkson Bros,
against the Great Northern Railway
for damages by lire near Ymir last
summer has been completed with a
verdict for plaintiffs as to liability.
The damage dime was about half a
million. This may teach the railways to use a little precaution during the coming summer.
Hope's Mining Recorder
The office of Mining Recorder for
the town of Hope is about to be created almost immediately, ancl A. E.
Raab is said to be slated for the new
job.
Alaska Wants to Join Canada
A movement has been started in
Ailaska to have mass meetings held
in Cordova, Seward, Valdez and Fairbanks to adopt resolutions asking
Congress to divorce Alaska, so it
can annex itself to Canada as the only
possible relief for continued and oppressive burdens on pioneers. Business men are behind the movement.
Wanted—An Elizabeth Fry
That the Vancouver city jail is in a
filthy ancl disgraceful condition is the
charge made by the Trades and Labour Council of that city. It is stated that several prisoners arc often
crowded into a single cell without
sanitary arrangements. The chief of
police admits that it is unfit for human habitation.
No Longer Dark
Prince Rupert streets arc again illuminated. The city lighting system
is proving a success ancl the lights
arranged in clusters about the main
streets aic a great convenience ancl
a decided advantage in every way.
Satisfactory
Every municipally operated department of the city of Calgary shows
a real surplus for Ihe year 1910. The
street railway shows a profit of over
$33,000.
Preparing for the Rush
Extensive improvements are now
being made at thc C. P. R. hotels at
Banff and Lake Louise in the Rockies. Two towers, each containing 30
bedrooms, will bc added to the Banff
hotel, also a new billiard room and
swimming tank. The chalet at Lake
Louise Avill receive extensive improvements.
Foiling the Foe
The annual report of the board of
directors of Tranquille Sanitorium
shows that 91 cases were treated last
year ancl over 62 per cent, left the
institution apparently cured, ll is
hoped that a special building will be
erected for the treatment of advanced cases. Thc sum required would
amount to nearly $ion,ooo. Il is
probable that, in memory of the late
King, the institution in future will
be known as the King Edward Sanitarium, Tranquille.
A Sign of the Times
The Canadian Bank of Commerce
is clearing site for the erection of their
new building in Cumberland whicii
will bc pushed ahead in spite of wind
or weather.

COOKING with GAS
SAVES TIME and MONEY
It is a method far superior to and much more convenient than any other.   Gas for cooking purposes is
more economical than coal or wood and it ensures more uniform results.   No overheating or under-
heating with gas.   No dust, ashes or smoke as with coal or wood.   Much cheaper, too, because you only
burn the gas while cooking.
Miss Hall is Here Just Now Demonstrating the Simplicity of Gas
We would like you to visit these showrooms while this lady is with us. The "Jewel Cabinet Range"
which she uses is admirably suited to the requirements of a large family or a gentleman's house. We
have an immense stock of Gas Cook Stoves, ranging in price from $18.00 up.

A Good Reason
Here is a vaudeville crack not used
on thc Orpheum Circuit:
It seems that a monologist was annoyed by a baby in thc audience crying. It was a little bit of a baby,
but it made a big'row.
Finally, the "act" stood it as long
as he could and then addressed the
mother thus: "Madam, can't you keep
that baby quiet?"
"No, I can't!"
"Well, Avhy can't you?"
"Because my dress is buttoned behind."
And the trap drummer crashed thc
cymbals just once.
"Packing School"
Thc Fruit Packing School held under the auspices of the Creston Fruit
and Produce Growers' Association in
the old schoolhouse at Creston recently has been a great success. Thc
full class of 16 growers were in attendance, and under the tuition of
Expert J. Berkley, have been thoroughly grounded in the basic principles  of  practical  fruit  packing.
The  Noiseless Typewriter
The noiseless typewriter has made
its appearance, and where once a
babel of clicks and clacks resounded
through an office all is as quiet and
tranquil as a church. It took a long
time for Samuel P. Kidder, an American, to perfect a noiseless typewriter
machine, and longer for the invention
to reach Canada. Now the demand
for them is so great that it is impossible for the factory at Middle-
town, Connecticut, to supply half the
required number.
All-Red Steamship Co.
The bill incorporating the All Red
Steamship Company has a very
strong British backing, the incorporators including Vickers, Son & Maxim, Swan & Hunter, Sir Thomas
Trowbridge, Sir Thomas Lancrcd
Pickford & Black and thc North
British Locomotive Company of Glasgow. The company proposes to establish a line of steamers between
Blacksod Bay ancl Halifax, having a
speed of 25 knots, with train ferries
between England ancl Ireland. It is
claimed this will reduce the Atlantic
passage to three and one-half days.
For the Pacific service from Vancouver to Auckland ancl Sydney 20-knot
steamers  are proposed.

One of the fads for spring—ancl it
already a popular one at the South-
•11 resorts—is the wearing of pretty
aists with a plain skirt.    This does
jt sound like much of a novelty, but
is, because, while there is an echo
a   style   that   has   prevailed   ever
nee the tailored suit ancl the separ-
le blouse came into vogue, there is
Ithing more than an echo.    In the
ew order of things there is a close
lationship between  the blouse and
lirt, although the former is clearly
lthe "separate" type.   By way of cx-
liple. a  skirt of bronze satin  cloth
Is a little semi-tailored   blouse   of
|_pe dc chine that reflects the gold-
tones of the bronze.    It is made
ii%ff
_W_\
km
|n  soft  box plaits which  extend
thc   sleeves,   and   has   a   round
of dainty white net with undor-
les:  also  of the  net,  that  reach
■inches over the elbow.    Yet, the
lie   may    be   worn     successfully
[ old skirts, especially with those
lack  or  brown   satin.
Ht      *      *
lis is the particular time of thc
[when the feminine mind, as far
lu'ons are concerned, is divided
een speculation as to what turn
hew styles will take ancl consid
eration of the problem of making the
present wardrobes render adequate
service until thc new modes shall
have been fairly launched. With separate blouses and various other accessories that women know so well
how to employ, one can always manage for daytime, but, even with an
extended outfit, new evening frocks
arc generally desirable by this time.
If the old ones are not losing their
freshness, it is reasonably certain
that one has become tired of them.
Sales in the ready-made departments
are a first aid to thc situation, for,
however disinclined one may be toward ready-to-wear costumes, the
fact remains that they offer interesting possibilities for rounding out the
season, particularly as the prices are
cut in half, and it happens, as it often docs, that a touch here and there,
that may be accomplished at home, is
sufficient to transform a stock pattern gown into one that is really distinctive.
* ' *   *
Grass linen in lace striped effects
is new among the linens ancl cottons
for afternoon frocks. It comes in
linen tone striped with a color, and it
is sheer ancl lacey. In fancy grenadine weaves tliere is a plentiful array
among cotton and cotton and silk
mixtures. Among the black and solid colored ones the silk ancl cotton
mixtures offer practical use. These
thin cottons are being used as veilings over spotted and variously patterned slips or linings. For these
slips the cotton foulards in their
long range of color and design and
with tlieir glossy surfaces arc effective. Allover embroidered batiste,
voiles and the like arc more plentiful
than ever before among goods sold
by thc yard. And thc Swisses and
other filmy materials with borders
embroidered by machine arc captivating. These come mostly in robe patterns but not at prohibitive prices.
The beaded cottons are for women
who do not havc to study the ways
of pennies in providing the wardrobe.
But the manufacturer, seeing thc delight of the multitude with them, is
trying to bring out woven fabrics
that have a sort of French knot inter-
wcavings resembling the beads very
cleverly. It is going to be a great
cotton season and cottons are going
to be tolerated in high places that
have heretofore prohibited them, except in the most elaborate minglings
of real laces and hand needle-work.
It in easy enough to find a yoke
lo one's liking ready made for any
kind of a dress. There are yokes
with or without collars made of perfectly plain net—it is untucked and
untrimmed; of figured and flowered
I nets of all kinds and of all the tuck-
led nets or real or imitation laces.
One nf the daintiest ones seen for
many a clay is of point dc venise and
Valenciennes laces, thc latter having
the regular ground of its kind, while
the pattern is done in fine venise
stitch. Thc bands of colored batiste or
chiffon voile whicii are being used in
necks ancl sleeves, with or without
pipings, in other parts of new waists,
suggest a variation for the blouse
that is passe, but not worn out. The
bands are made double with the fold
toward the neck ancl hands and are
often a full two or three inches wide,
usually headed by a band of lace insertion. Sometimes little lapels or
collar effects are made of thc color,
and add a new touch lo an otherwise ordinary model.
* *   *
A one-piece yoke and sleeves are
made of bronbe chiffon eloth. finely
tucked all over, while a bib of the
skirt material '.. attached to the skirt,
the top of which, preferably, is slight
ly above the normal line. This bib
is applied so that it pouches a trifle,
and is finished with a narrow braid.
From the underarm the bib curves
upward until it is finished in a
straight line with the yoke, and the
space at the sides is filled in with
black satin, veiled with the bronze
chiffon. Many of the blouses now
are hand-beaded, some in an effective design on the front, others on the
sleeves, and still others showing a
combination of bead ancl silk cm-
broidery. Fringe is used, then arrow-
bead edging tucks or plaits, while
ball fringe is telling for the same purpose. Fringes are used, too—in place
of, or in conjunction with, the Antoinette ruffles. It is a pretty idea,
capable of being worked out in various ways. As for sleeves, they partake of the same variety ascribed to
bodices, and length ancl general character arc almost entirely matters of
'.'.'."'A

individual taste. It must be said here
that the sleeve that reaches just to
thc elbow is apt to be ungraceful. An
inch above or below alters thc effect
surprisingly.
*    *    *
For a fancy waist, ancl there are
many occasions upon which thc
blouse of dressy appearance is convenient, even if not actually appropriate, there is a new wing sleeve that
is good, ll is cut a shallow circular
ancl attached to a straight line from
the shoulder down, instead of at thc
arm side. Most dressmakers add a
tiny undersleeve of mousselinc or
silk, but it is not considered a necessity. For thc washable waist, one of
the recent French models is of distinctly Empire effect, lt is gathered
to a circular yoke of fine embroidery,
its own material being batiste, and
just below the bust, the greater
amount of fulness being at the lower
edge, it is shirred three times with
cords. Another model is much like
it, except that it has the short sleeves and top in one piece and thc body
portion attached to thc latter with a
row of beading. Crepe cle chine is
employed for semi-tailored waists,
and satin is the smartest thing for
spring wear, to complete the strictly
