THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 1910
One Dollar Per Annum
THE HOODOO AGAIN
W. E. Oliver in a well-worded letter
published on the front page of both the
local dailies appealed to the electors to
vote for him personally, and not to desert
him in order to concentrate their forces in
favour of another candidate for the purpose of defeating a third. The results
show that Mr. Oliver sized up the situation with absolute correctness. It is an
open secret that less than a week before
the election the trade switched its solid
vote to J. A. Turner, believing him to be
a stronger candidate than Mr. Oliver.
That vote is conceded to be nearer seven
hundred than six hundred, but call it six-
fifty. The final figures show that if this
vote had been given to Mr. Oliver he
would have had a majority over Mr. Morley of nearly 200, which about corresponds
with Dr. Hall's majority of last year. The
final figures show that Mr. Oliver's personal vote was at least 200 more than Mr.
Turner's, for if the trade vote of 650 be
deducted from Mr. Turner's total, it
brings it down to 833. Mr. Oliver has no
need to be ashamed of the result of his
first appeal to the electors of Victoria.
Ten hundred and thirty votes is a fine
endorsement for a candidate whose only
fault was that he was not well enough
known, and all who desire to see the
Mayoral chair released from the bondage
of the freaks who have occupied it for the
last five or six years will hope that Mr.
Oliver may see his way to persevere, in
which event he may rest assured that the
position for which he made a manly
struggle will yet be conquered. As to the
election of Mr. Morley, it can be regarded
in no other light than that of a calamity.
His return evoked no enthusiasm, and
while he has a certain following among the
less responsible members of the community, he does not, and never can, possess
the confidence of the property owners, the
people who have to vote on money bylaws. His election means in effect, if not
in intention, that Victoria for the last few
months has been marking progress at too
great a rate, and that for the next twelve
it will mark time. Such a result can only
be deplored, but experience leads The
Week to conclude that no other condition
is possible. There is one gratifying feature in connection with the election in the
return of three new and enterprising men
for the Council in Messrs. Bannerman,
Sargison and Langley. It is also a matter
for congratulation that the Sooke By-law
was turned down. The next year may
well be spent in obtaining reliable data
with respect to all the water projects which
have been noted, and by that time Victoria
will be ready to purchase water by the
gallon from the Esquimalt Water;^rks
Company, and that Company will be able
to supply it, and then for several years,
exit the water question.
CHURCH GOING
In the multitude of councillors there is
wisdom. With respect to Church going
this is true, since a Daniel has come to
judgment, indeed two Daniels. The first
is the eminent Babbi Adler of Xew York,
who, whatever his religious belief, is so
distinguished  and accomplished a man,
that his opinion is entitled to the highest
respect.    He says that the chief explanation of the present day laxity in Church
going is due to the intellectual inferiority
of the men who fill the pulpits, and that
the congregations   have  found them out.
He  urges  all  who  are  engaged  in the
sacred calling  to equip  themselves more
efficiently and especially along the lines
of the Humanities.   This statement is so
exactly in line with the opinion expressed
by The Week that no apology for quoting
it is necessary.    The Eev. Stanley Aid
preached a very thoughtful and timely
sermon  on  Sunday  last  at  St.  John's
Church on the same subject.    The first
thought which strikes the casual reader is
that it is a thousand pities Mr. Ard does
not always write his sermons, for the oue
in question is so consecutive and lucid
that even the Philistine might well wish
for more, and it reminds one how Jew
men, even preachers, are now-a-days able
to stick to their text without being held
to it by a manuscript.   Mr. Ard's contention   is   that   latter-day   indifference towards Church going is due to a gradual
loss of the sense of worship.   Few people
will be inclined to disagree with this conclusion, but Mr. Ard did not carry the
argument far enough;   his historical research detailed a number of facts more
or less interesting in their detached form,
but it may reasonably be doubted whether,
to give  a logical  conclusion,   they have
tended to diminish the worship spirit.   It
is rather a strange argument to put forward that John Wesley by exalting the
importance of preaching and by concentrating attention on the preacher,  was
helping to diminish the sense of worship.
It seems that such a suggestion is completely answered by the experience of the
great Founder of Christianity, Who exalted preaching above every ministration,
Who attracted men of all ranks in their
thousands to * hear His lesson, and Who
commissioned His disciples to go forth and
preach.   If the exaltation of the preacher
had been likely to diminish the sense of
worship, or to divert men's attention from
the true spirit of worship, it is hardly
like that the   Founder   of   Christianity
would have  apotheosised preaching and
laid it upon His followers as tlieir chief
mission. Mr. Ard will permit the reminder
that the message today is the same message as the early preachers were authorised to deliver, and he will pardon the
man in the street for concluding that the
fault is neither with the message, nor altogether with the people, but it may have
something to do with the manner in which
the message is delivered and with the personal equipment of character evinced in
the graces of humility, sincerity, unselfishness, devotion,   self-denial   and   charity,
which were the conspicuous equipment of
all the men who have been heard gladly,
even by the common people.
INTERFERING ALDERMEN
Mr. C. H. Topp has forestalled The
Week in announcing that the work of his
department has been seriously handicapped
by the interference of Alderman Hender
son. Mr. Topp has stated his complaint
specifically and it is therefore unnecessary
to say any more. The matter rests between himself, Aid. Henderson and the
ratepayers. Unfortunately, however, there
is another Alderman who should be
coupled with Aid. Henderson in this connection, and who may yet be called upon
to defend himself for having noutralised
the good work of the most important
spending department of the City. The
gentleman referred to is Aid. Fullerton.
The attitude taken by The Week has been
fully justified in the resignation of Mr.
Topp and his outspoken endorsation of its
charges; it is greatly to be regretted that
he could not see his way to take the step
earlier but in any event there is reason
to suppose that the day of aldermanic
interference with the heads of departments has gone by.
ANOTHER SURPRISE
The election to the Mayoralty chair in
Vancouver of Mr. L. V. Taylor over Mr.
C. S. Douglas, who was running for a
second term, is hardly less of a surprise
—though one may well hope that it may
be less of a catastrophe—than the result
of the Victoria election. Mr. C. S. Douglas, during the past year, has proved himself one of the best mayors which Vancouver has ever had. He fulfilled his
duties and played his part of chief magistrate of the principal commercial city of
British Columbia most worthily, and it
would have seemed only reasonable and
fair to have allowed him a second term.
Vancouver has not often in the past been
fortunate enough or wise enough to select
gentlemen for the office of mayor who
were either dignified or useful. Mr. Douglas has been both—but Vancouver wanted
a change. To his successful opponent, Mr.
L. V. Taylor, as a fellow traveller on the
thorny path of journalism, The Week extends its congratulations. He is a first
class fellow personally, both courteous and
obliging, and probably his gravest fault is
the revolutionary rubbish which he allows
other people to frequently insert in the
columns of the publication which he has
so ably handled in other respects during
the past half-dozen years. Of his capacity for public administration we know
nothing, but we wish liim luck and a good
judgment, for the average municipal council which gets elected in the Terminal City
is anything but a pleasant body to handle.
TRUE PUBLIC SPIRIT
The Nelson Daily News has once more
exhibited that public spirited enterprise
which long ago placed it in the front rank
of British Columbia publications, by issuing its regular Annual Review of the
progress of mining in this Province, and
the general development of the Kootenays,
during the past twelve months. The mining
department has been prepared and compiled by Mr. E. Jacobs, the well-known
and energetic secretary of the Western
branch of the Canadian Mining Institute,
and the best equipped man in the Province for dealing with such an important
matter as that of our mining industry,
which is more than double the size of any
other industry in our borders. To both
the Nelson Daily News and to Mr. E.
Jacobs The Week extends its cordial congratulation on the capable and adequate
rendering of a great and lasting service
to the people of British Columbia.
AGRICULTURAL MATTERS
During  the  week   commencing   31st
January, Victoria will be in evidence in
all matters pertaining to Agriculture.  On
Monday, the 31st January, a meeting of
the Secretaries of the Agricultural Fairs
and Associations of the Province will take
place.   The main aims and objects of the
Convention are to arrange about the securing of Judges for future Exhibitions so as
to compile a circuit tliat will enable fairs
to be held on dates not conflicting with
others situated in the same district. Other
matters pertaining to the more effective
carrying out of   the   Annual Exhibitions
throughout the Province, will be considered, and no doubt, as a result of such u
conference, much good will .iccrue to the
advancement of Agricultural Fairs and
Exhibitions  in  British   Columbia.    On
Tuesday, the 1st February, and the following day,   a meeting   of   the General
Farmers' Institute will be held, when all
proposals, resolutions and matters for important consideration will be placed on
the agt'ida and finally dealt with during
the Convention.    This Institute is representative of all the Farmers' Institutes
throughout tbe Province, and all matters
pertaining to Agriculture and the betterment oi ohe present condition of the farmer are laid before the conference for consideration and decision.   It is anticipated
that many of the Institutes are furnishing their representative delegates with proposals to submit to the Convention and
which, if carried out, cannot but have the
best results for practical operation.    On
Thursday, the 3rd February, the Annual
Convention of the B. C. Dairymen's Association will be held, and on the following day, the B. C. Stock Breeders' Association will be in session.    A good programme has been prepared for both of
these meetings, and many interesting and
valuable lectures will be delivered by well-
known authorities on all matters pertaining to Agriculture.   Nothing succeeds like
success, and it is evident that the knowledge disseminated throughout the proceedings of these gatherings cannot but have
the best possible results in the further advancement of the Agricultural Industry
throughout British Columbia.   The C. P.
Ry. Co.   are   issuing   special   excursion
tickets at single rate, and the opportunity
afforded the people from near and far to
combine pleasure with business in coming
to Victoria during the Convention, is one
not often offered the public.   It is to be
hoped that many will avail themselves of
the chance to hear some first-class practical
addresses and will also seize the opportunity to   take  part   in the  discussions
which will follow.   Full information and
particulars of the Conventions can be obtained  from R.  W.  Hodson,  Secretary-
Treasurer,   Department   of   Agriculture,

At The Street   ^
_________
p By THB LOUNGER C
As I gaze thoughtfully out of my
window and ponder on my subject
matters for this week, my eye is
caught by the somewhat unseemly
condition of Trounce Avenue paving
just outside the C. P. R. Telegraph
side-entrance, and just inside the iiyn
posts which run across the Govern
ment Street entrance to the Avenue.
The paving is worn into a hollow
which collects the rain, and retains it
when thc other parts are dry. The
result is an eye-sore in the most conspicuous portion of the city. I have
heard this particular spot called "The
Hub of Victoria," and it is certainly
the most popular rendezvous for
street politicians. Thc stranger within our gates passes and re-passes it
a dozen times a day, and cannot fail
to be surprised that ''The City Beautiful" permits such a state of affairs
in such a prominent place. I admit
that this is only a question of beautifying, and that there is more urgent
work needed elsewhere, but I fancy
the improvement needed would take
neither much money nor much time.
The Lounger begs to call the attention of the new Council to this
matter.
* *   *
By the way it is a curious thing
that at least ninety-nine per cent, of
the people who have occasion to name
this connecting link between Government and Broad Streets, invariably
speak of it as "Trounce Alley,"
though it is distinctly written up on
the wall as "Trounce Avenue." The
popular idea that an avenue must be
sheltered with trees on either side
is wrong. It usually is so, but in
point of fact the word "avenue"
simply means a means of approach,
particularly with reference to a "short
cut." An alley is a low-class avenue
and bears much the same relation to
its better bred brother that the phrase
"young person" does to the word
"lady." The two latter are both women, but—there's a difference.
* *   *
I have always been somewhat of a
democrat and one of the finest things
in this country is the fact that it
doesn't matter what a man does so
long as he is honest and pays his way.
That is the theory and it works out
as fact in almost any occupation you
can think of, but there is one exception. A white man may not be a public boot-black; he may clean his boots
and shoes at home, provided that he
does so surreptitiously and none of
his neighbours know of it, but he
must not work for hire in* this respect unless he hails from the land
of the Pope, or from Ethiopian
climes. In England white folks clean
boots, and foreigners wait at table
in public restaurants. Of course I
do not wish to be understood as making a bold statement and not admitting certain exceptions. What I have
said is the general rule. I shall never
forget my first experience in a. Canadian hotel; it was in Winnipeg and
I had put my boots out at night to be
cleaned; (of course I call it "shined"
now). Early in the morning I was
hauled out of bed by a somewhat
irate bell-boy who refused to deliver
my foot-gear until I had handed over
ioc. I then realised that in other
countries there are other customs, and
I never forgot the lesson.
* *   *
Have you ever noticed that there
are some people born with a sort
of constitutional disability to shut a
door? I know of dozens, and it is
not by any means because they really
want the door keeping open. One
man of whom I am thinking will invariably enter his room, settle himself down, and then, usually with a
muttered exclamation which doesn't
look well in print, rise and shut the
door with a bang. I know a restaurant in town the latch of whose door
is in a faulty condition. Consequently every fresh arrival or departure
necessitates the proprietor in his own
interests and those of his remaining
customers, getting up from his place
and carefully closing the door. He
wastes more nervous energy in this
way during the day than could be
compensated for by the saving of
the cost of a hundred new latches.
Of course we all know the individual
who never shuts a door on leaving
another person's room. He is nothing short of a criminal and should
be ostracised. I remember my headmaster once characterised such an one
as "a weak-minded fool," an observation which somewhat lost its point
inasmuch as his own initials were
W. M. F. and for some unknown and
utterly undeserved reason he was
popularly known as "the weak-minded
felon."
* *   *
This sort of characteristic puts mc
in mind of another very common one,
only this applies to families rather
than to individuals. Some households  never seem   to   have   proper
"I am prescribing C. Carnegie & Co.'s Swedish Porter
in my practice and find it much superior to any other
preparation of a similar nature."
This unasked for testimony of C. J. Ringnell, M.D., a
leading physician of Minneapolis, Minn., U.S., regarding
Carnegie's Porter should be well noted by the people of
British Columbia.
Another fact that should be dwelt upon: Carnegie's
Swedish Porter not only passed the severe analysis of
the Pure Food Commission, but it passed with high
honors.
Most of the leading medical men of the day recommend in your home for your wife and family.
YOU should drink this pure Porter during the winter
season; it will save YOU many a doctor's bill. Have it
in your home for your wife and family.
Do not accept an inferior porter. If your grocer
cannot supply you with the genuine "Carnegie's"—which
is Brewed and Bottled in Gothenburg, Sweden,—kindly
Phone us and we will give you the name of a dealer
who handles this best of all Porters.

writing facilities in their home. Paterfamilias always writes his letters in
the office and so there is no one to
create the necessary fuss without
which no improvements are ever
made. When some other member of
the family desires to write a letter,
pen, ink, writing paper have all to
be collected from different parts of
the establishment. When the ink pot
is triumphantly produced from some
bedroom where it has been made to
do service in lieu of a tailor, just to
ink over a little hole in a black coat,
it is discovered to be empty, or if
made from powder, to be dry. When
that defect has been remedied the
only pen to be found is out of commission because the youngest boy has
been using it as a dart. A box of nibs
is finally unearthed, which are made
to do, although they don't suit that
particular writer's taste. It is a moral
certainty that even if writing paper
is ready to hand, there is a shortage
of envelopes, or vice versa, and by
the time that everything is in order
to get down to business, why, I suppose you know what I am going to
say, it is too late for the mail. It is
little habits like this which bring children up with a strong disinclination
to acknowledge Uncle John's Christmas present or Grannie's five-spot
sent for a birthday. I know because
I have been there. Letter-writing in
my home was indeed a test of love,
when I was a small boy. I was
never provided with implements of
my own till I went to school, and
other people's were always where
they shouldn't be, and the state of
the family blotting paper was indeed
a lesson in practical economy. Just
so long as there was one little spot
of pink on the latter it had to be kept
in use.
*   *   *
And yet we were allowed butter
with our jam. The comparative cost
of butter with jam twice a day and
of enough clean blotting paper to
keep a small boy's annual correspondence clean may be worked out
by those of you who enjoy statistics
and mathematical problems. Personally I hate them.   But that is the way

A Sure Investment
No little excitement was created in
the local speculative world this week
by the return of Andrew Gray, President of the Marine Iron Works
from the California oil fields.
Mr. Gray went to California at the
instance of some of his friends who
wanted him to look over the holdings
of the Canadian Pacific Oil Company
of B. C, Ltd.
Mr. Gray is Vice-President of this
Company.
After ten days spent in California
spent in the fields, Mr. Gray sent this
message to one of his friends in Victoria:—
"Bakersfield, California, Jan. ioth,
1910.—Have been over the oil fields.
Am well satisfied with my investment
in your Company and 'he prospects
ahead which are better than represented to me. (Signed) Andrew
Gray."
It seems that everybody who contemplated investing in shares in this
Company was awaiting Mr. Gray's
return, and when he arrived in town
Friday afternoon he was literally besieged  with  inquiries.
To all Mr. Gray advised immediate
investment.
"This is good enough for my
money," said Mr. Gray; "it is about
the biggest thing I ever saw."
Stock in this Company is selling for
25 cents per share yet, and in the
opinion of sure investors, it is a buy
up to and including par, one dollar.
Caught
"Pshaw!" exclaimed Miss Yerner,
impatiently, "I'm sure we'll miss the
first act. We've waited a good many
minutes for that mother of mine."
"Hours, I should say," Mr. Slow-
man retorted rather crossly.
"Ours?" Oh. George I" she cried
and laid her blushing cheek upon his
shirt front.

BY BOHEMIAN
That the forms of the British Constitution are amongst the most conservative things in the world has
never been disputed in this progressive age, and the old Norman French
with which the Royal assent is given
to bills that have passed through both
Houses is an example in point. But
I was not thinking so much of the
King of England when I chose the
above as the heading for this article.
I was thinking more of the kings and
queens who are met with in almost
every family on the American continent.
Who. is it that rules the household?
The father may think he does, and
occasionally when he comes home in
a bad temper, he may be allowed to
have his own way for once in a while;
but for the most part he is merely
the hired man, who has to pay for the
hiring and do the bidding of those
for whom he works. The mother probably thinks that she is the real
sovereign of her little kingdom and
so she is when she can prevail upon
her colleague to administer the oft-
threatened thrashing. But the real
potentates are the children, nor is
the reason far to seek. They are the
victims of unlimited spoiling and are
allowed their own way too often for
the sake of peace and quietness. Few
things do more to ruin a child than
threatening without fulfilling; he
quickly learns how far to go without
any serious results, and in his inmost heart really has a slight feeling
of contempt for the person who apparently thinks that authority can be
maintained by words and not by
deeds.
Nor is the evil confined merely to
the homes; it finds its pernicious way
into the very schools themselves. It
takes a good deal of moral courage
to chastise a child, when it is known
that the result will be the immediate
appearance of an irate parent, who
will not hesitate to use abusive
language and sometimes resort to
force to show that he thinks a teacher
is nothing more than a paid hireling,
whose only business it is to teach
certain subjects, and who has no right
to any feelings of self-respect.
In the good old days a child was
sent to school to be taught not only
reading, writing and arithmetic, but
also a proper bearing to .those placed
in authority over him, and many a
parent would give his son an extra
thrashing if he heard that he had received one at school. The life was
a hard one for the boys, but it turned
out the men who built up the Empire. The village dominie was a tyrant, and often not a very just one;
he ruled, not with a rod of iron, but
with a ferrule, which served the purpose far better. Often he was not
conspicuous for his erudition, and he
could never have passed the Normal
examination with its multitudinous excursions into subjects of which he had
never heard.
I remember reading one of these
Teachers' Examination papers once,
and this was in England. It was set
for applicants for posts in the Board
Schools, which correspond to the public schools in Canada. One question
has always remained in my memory.
Having given the number of pupils
in the room, the dimensions of the
room, the size of the window and the
temperature of the outside air, thc
question went on to ask how high
the window should be raised in order
to ventilate the room properly. Now.
of course, there was too little hygiene
in those days, but surely that was
rather a ridiculous question. Our old
dominie could never have given the
correct answer, but I am prepared to
guarantee that he could tell whether
tl.c 100m was too stuffy or too cold
He might not want to change the atmosphere as often as he should have
done, but whenever he so desired, he
could do it without having to go into
abstruse  calculations  on  the  matter
One of the brightest signs of the
times is the effort of the present Lord
Mayor of London to re-introduce the
old system of apprenticeships. Thc
apprentices had no gay time while
serving their indentures; when they
could read, write and cipher they
were bound down for seven years and
their master was in absolute control
over them. They had to be in bed
at a certain hour and likewise to be
out of it. Everyone has read "Bar-
naby Rudge" and will remember the
iscendency which the locksmith's apprentice obtained over his fellows because he could make latch keys for
his colleagues. But at the end of
their time they were skilled workmen,
not Jacks-of-all-trades, and could earn
ood money as respected and respectable citizens.
How often is it the case today that
a man will say that he started life in
one profession, left that and entered
another, and so on till he says at the
end "I've been pretty nearly everything in my time!" But such an one
is not thc successful one. And this
chipping and changing is due to the
fact that in childhood self control,
self denial and steadiness of purpose
ire not instilled when the mind is
plastic and ready to receive impressions which will take root. No, "Le
Roi le Veult" is the motto of the present day parent, and the child it is
who is monarch of all hc surveys.
That Foul Betrayal
Bruce in Saturday Sunset accuses
the Similkameen Star and the Hedley
Gazette of betraying the Similkameen
by not following his lead in the recent
election campaign. ""Not havins the
practice in turning sharp corners with
the lightning rapidity of the Sunset,
the Star and the Gazette shouldn't be
expected to follow the lead of a paper
that in its issues of.October 23 and
30 and November 64rranaged to steer
its course respectively north, south
and west. Judging from the way the
vote went, the Similkameen didn't
take the betrayal of the Star and the
Gazette to heart any more than they
did the jeremiads of the Sunset, and
that was not at all. The word "discredited" as used by the Starr, over
which Bruce was disposed to get
nasty again, was really about the only
single word in the English language
that properly described it.—Similkameen Star.

Bernard Daly, at the Victoria Theatre
He had a most successful season
and was hailed a worthy successor
to the immortal Joe by newspaper
critics everywhere.
Last season he starred in "Rory
of the Hills" and successfully. But
he dreamed of a romantic story of
old Ireland, in which he would be
the fun-loving broth of a boy, and
it grew and developed until it matured into "Sweet Innisfallen," a
comedy drama full of love and romance, sorrows and sunshine. The
scenes and action take place on the
Island of Innisfallen" in the beautiful
Lakes of Killarney, where the scenic
artist can display his talent and "The
Fairies' Glen," "The Ruined Abbey,"
"Fairlawn," and the green fields and
mountains of old Ireland.
Mr. Daly feels not a jealous throb
at the success of individual members
of his company; he delights in it; he
feels he owes it to his patrons to
give them a first class performance
and that can only be accomplished
by first-class dramatic people. None
other will be found in his support.
With a complete outfit of scenery
from footlights to back wall, this lad
—now a man grown, from a New
England City, but with a heart, a
voice, a brogue, and the wit of old
Ireland all blended in "Barney Daly"
—will be seen at the Victoria Theatre
011 Monday, January 11, in his new
play, "Sweet Innisfallen," under the
auspices of the Knights of Columbus.
This is the simple story of the boy
who could do things and do them well.

pyramiding and manoeuvreing on the
bicycles. The act contains a number
of ensembles all classed as very pretty pictures. This act is said to have
all other .bicycle acts backed off the
boards for grace and skill and will
be a feature act here next week.
A new and original act for the entertainment of those who go to the
Grand will be Alfred Jackson, the
popular poster cartoonist. He will
draw a number of pictures with crayons on the stage and include a number of local people. He is said to be
able to catch a likeness instantly.
Gilbert and Emma Craig are a
musical pair who will use cow bells,
sleigh bells, dulcimer and freak pipes
for harmonic purposes. Although they
use these old instruments they will
produce excellent music.
A most graceful clog dancing act
will be given by Miller and Mack.
Tlieir style is both buck and wing and
the clog, the latter having a good deal
of eccentric dancing in it. They are
hilled as the best in the dancing line.
Thomas J. Price will sing "The Sailors and Soldiers of the King" and
there will be two wordless absorbing
dramas shown on the moving picture
screen.
A Personal Letter to the  Members
(Past and Present) of the Victoria Musical Society
Dear Sir or Madam,—I beg to inform you that the Jomelli, Hamlin
and Kreisler concerts each entailed
loss upon the Society. To thoroughly test the musical and public feeling
in Victoria, the non-subscription seats
were offered at exceptionally low
prices. The result was most discouraging and the position is so serious
as to merit the earnest consideration
of all  music lovers.
My personal opinion of the situation is that if we really wish to
hear the world's great artists in our
own city we must: (a) Pay more for
the privilege—or, (b) Personally invite our musical friends to subscribe
and thus reduce thc individual cost
per seat,—or (c) Abandon our efforts
and go—as in former years—to Senttle or Vancouver for our music.
The New York Symphony Orchestra, which carries sixty performers
and a vocal quartette under the leadership of Mr. Walter Damrosch, will
cost $2,000 to bring here, and $500
only has been subscribed. Unless an
additional $1,000 is raised by the 28th
February, the concert will have to be
abandoned.    In  order  to  raise  this
sum the committee has decived to
offer seats to members and theirs
friends as follows:—125 five-dollar
seats at $4.00 each; 125 four-dollar
seats at $3.00 each; 70 three-dollar
seats at $2.00 each.
If you wish the Orchestra to come
here will you make a point of inviting your musical friends to sikn the
form and return same to me as soon
as possible.
Yours sincerely,
GEORGE PHILLIPS,
Director.
Here and There
Referring to the hot air being circulated by the British politicians at
the present time, and especially to
certain knights calling Mr. Ure a liar,
a calculating liar, and a d—d liar, the
Halifax Chronicle says: "We have
done pretty hot campaigns in Canada,
but we are glad to say we are a long
way behind the Old Country in the
use of personalities on the platform."
Heavens, that's enough to make a
man swear. The Chronicle evidently
has a meaning of its own for the
word. If Mr. Herald says of the grit
party that it is corrupt, and Mr.
Chronicle retorts by saying 'You're a
liar,' how much of a personality is
there there. Why, in one single province there is more dirty linen spread
out than in a campaign all over Britain. What was said against Ure
was said against him as a politician.
In this country it is said against the
man. The sins of his youth, the failings of his mature years, real or imaginary, are held up before an audience. On this side a man's private
life is not sacred, in Britain it is.—

"A useful man for an office," cried
the populace.
"Yes," added Argus, "and I can
keep half of them closed when I want
to."
Here the populace clapped their

"We'll make him custom-house inspector,"   they  declared.

Pearl—"Yes, we are going to pass
the winter at Palm Beach, and I am
out pricing bathing suits. I want
something real chic."
Ruby—"Gracious, dear, I should
think something real duck would be
better for a bathing suit."
She—I'm living on brown bread and
water to improve my complexion.
He—Hoy long can you keep it up?
She—Oh, indefinitely, I guess.
He—Then let's get married.

Why Don t You Use a Gas Range?
WE ARE OFFERING BIG REDUCTIONS THIS MONTH
Much timp is wasted in chopping "kindling" for coal
or wood stoves, and carrying dusty coal or ashes backwards and forwards. A kitchen where a gas stove is
in use is always tidy, should be spic and span. Quick
as a wink you have your fire without trouble of
building—turn off the gas tap and it is out;
drudgery, worry and money saved. The lower oven
in a Gas Range is a wonder-worker for roasts and
broilings; juices of the meat aro retained; both sides
of a steak are broiled in four minutes at a trifling
expense. With coal half the juice is lost, the cost
is one-third more and the inconvenience, dirt and
worry can never be figured.
There is great comfort, too, in good Gas heat.
Without any bother you can quickly warm a cold
or chilly room or hallway with a Gas Radiator or
Gas Grate. There may be some particular room iu
your house that you cannot heat easily with a
furnace and impracticable to use a wood or coal
stove. This difficulty is easily overcome with a Gas
Heater. In any room gas imparts a healthful
warmth and cosiness at minimum expense. No smell,
no smoke, no dust, no work, but all heat where you
want it and when you want it. No fear of fires
from over-heated flues for those sensible people who
cook with gas.
You are most cordially welcome to visit our showrooms whether you desire to purchase or merely
to look.    We will gladly explain the many advantages of gas for cooking and heating purposes.

fairly easy to go up to a man and
ask for a loan of $500; if you don't
get it, at any rate you haven't lost
your self-respect; but, oh, the horrors
of trying to borrow a miserable little
quarter. Immediately you became
anathema, maranatha, and all those
other things which strike you with
additional terror because you don't
quite know what they mean. I have
screwed my courage up to the highest
pitch to try and ask for a car-fare,
and have finally walked in preference,
but I have not the slightest objection
to ordering a suit from my tailor, the
price of nearly a thousand car-fares,
and I don't even promise to pay him
tomorrow.
* *   *
Again, why is it perfectly permissible to ask a man if he has the price
of a drink, provided you know him
well, but a degrading thing to ask
for the price of a meal? There is no
reason for it, but you know that it is
so. If you meet your friend he won't
think any the worse of you if you
say: "I'm dead broke, old man; have
you got the price of a couple?" But
tell him that you haven't eaten for
twenty-four hours ,and he'll begin to
think that it's time for him to break
away. You may write to him in a
lordly way and inform him that as
you are in the neighbourhood you
would like to spend the week-end at
his home, and he'll welcome you with
open arms; but tell him that your
landlord has kicked you out for arrears of rent and ask him to put you
up for the sake of charity, and that's
a very different coloured horse. You
may raise a few thousands on a mortgage when you are on the verge of
bankruptcy or for speculative purposes, and the world, regards you as
a man of property; but let the world
and his wife see you coming out of
the pawnbroker's minus your watch,
and your dinner invitations will fall
off in number.

Truly it is a quaint world and full

Sightseeing With Reservations
Out of the Grand Central Station
the other day came a couple the
sight of whom caused citizens who
saw them to admit to themselves that
there might be, after all, some basis
of truth in the "Uncle Josh" jokes of
the allegedly funny papers. The old
man grasped his carpet-bag and bulging green umbrella firmly, and looked
up and down the street, his mouth
agape.
"There's a heap 0' sights in New
York, I guess, Maria," he said. "I
misdoubt if we see them all."
The old lady's mouth set grimly.
"Wall, Silas," she replied, and her
manner was more than significant,
"bein' as I'm with you, there's some,
I expect, that you ain't goin' to seel"

Andrew Gray, President of the Marine Iron Works of Victoria, who was deputized to go
to California and look over the property of the Canadian Pacific Oil Company of British

As soon as he came out of the oil fields and struck a telegraph station he wired the
local officers of the Company as follows:
* Bakersfield, California, January 10, 1910.
" Have been over the oil fields.   Am well satisfied with my investment in your Company and the prospects ahead, which are better than represented to me.
" Signed—Andrew Gray."
This speaks volumes.
If you care to know anything more about the property of the Canadian Pacific Oil Company of British Columbia, Limited, stock in which is now selling for 25 cents per share, par value
one dollar, fully paid and non-assessable, call Mr. Gray on the telephone.
