lie Victoria Times is very emphatic in
aring that in the matter of the Fort
£er lands it has not found another
le's nest, because it declares "there are
(pits in it," whatever that may mean.
Koubt this is as conclusive to the intel-
Ilce of the Times as any of the other
lie long recital of incidents from which
[educes the alarming conclusion that
13 has been a scandal in the Lands De-
dent of the Provincial Government
lh nothing but blood, of course, politi-
Iplood, can wipe out.   When the Times
story it does not know how to tell it,
' had far better hand it over to a
Irter than dole it out in four columns
Iturgid   editorial   interspersed   with
lotions and exordiums of a commina-
Inature.   As far as one can make out,
■Times suggests that 42,000 acres of
lincial lands in the neighbourhood of
la    Lake    have    been    improperly
Fired by a company called The Fort
er   Land   Company,   Limited.   It
I that in some way, which it does not
[apt to explain, one of the vendors of
J land obtained information from a
trnment official which presumably he
[no right to obtain.   It then suggests
la London company, or the agent of
fnpany, issued a prospectus which initially states that the,lands in ques-
lhad been acquired from the British
Imbia Government at the lowest classi-
lon rate of $2.50, an acre.   And then
Iggests that the Order in Council of
|l ist7 which was of a retroactive char-
wtmld   have  deprived  the   Fort
§3r Land Company of these lands and
in consequence a rescinding order
I subsequently passed on May llth,
Ily for the purpose of reinstating the
1 Fraser Land Company in possession
lie lands at the original price.    Its
I suggestion is that an important fac-
|n securing this rescinding order was
lthe legal firm of Bowser, Walbridge
fid, of which the Attorney-General is
[mber, acted as solicitors in the trans-
In.   The Week has made a personal
Itigation   of  these   charges   and   is
prised to state that so far as they
in any way to the Government or
[Department thereof they are abso-
I**- foundationless.     It is true that
10 acres of land were staked and ad-
led in the names of sixty-seven dif-
|t  persons  in  accordance  with  the
tncial Land Act.   As the various
■cations matured they were handed to
Company's agent, in every case ac-
lanied by the required deposit of fifty
1 an acre, and the whole of these appli-
lis were so made and paid for last
Moreover, all the applications had
'passed on by the Government last
land permission to purchase granted
let to the usual survey and the classi-
|on. then to be made, as is usual in all
.   The transaction therefore could not
been affected in any sense by the
Ir in Council of April lst, because it
long passed the stage to which such
applied.    It only applied to cases
lich the deposit had been made with
|rovernment, but no permission to pur-
had been granted, because the applies had not been reached.   As to the
Inents of the London prospectus, it
Id be obvious, even to the Times, that
Jrovernment is not in any sense respon-
Ifor these; neither could the Company
1 with truth that the lands had been
Ired at $2.50 an acre, because until
[urvey was completed and the classi-
jon made no one could possibly know
Imuch of the land would be rated as
llass and how much as second-class.
■Times knows this perfectly well and
pretext for holding the Government
liisible for the advertising methods of
■London  company is as flimsy as it
Miss Marjorie Kent, of District No. 7, leads all contestants for the grand
prize in the Ladies' Voting Contest of The Week. Miss Kent is closely followed by Miss Smith of the same district. The race between these two popular contestants promises to be keen and interesting.
Miss Ruth Bell, of Vancouver, District No. 12; Miss Ethel Ricketts,
of District No. 2, and Miss Sadie Craig, of District No. 10, are also within
easy distance of the leader. In fact, no candidate has such a great number
of votes that she could not be overcome with a little effort.
The best of feeling prevails between the different candidates in this
friendly battle of ballots. As this is the first publication of votes, one might
say the contest has just started. A number of personal friends are competing for the Grand Prize and in fact some are classified in the same district.
Some of the districts have no representatives. Remember, a prize will
be awarded to the leader of each district regardless of the number of candidates in the other districts having more votes.
Candidates should bear wellin mind the fact that on July 15th the first
period ends. All subscriptions turned in to The Week office before July
15th will count for more votes than if turned in later.
Seven weeks from today this Ladies'- Great Voting Contest will close.
Candidates may enter at any time during the contest.
A few of the candidates rather object to having their names published
in the paper because of the publicity they will receive. Candidates should
ease their minds on this score, as "all the world loves a worker and a winner." If you enter the contest, go in to win. It is almost impossible for a
candidate to inform all her friends and acquaintances personally that she is
in the contest, so by having your name appear in the list of contestants and
the greater number of votes you have to your credit, the greater support you
will receive. Very few people care to support a loser, while on the other
hand one feels pleased when they pick out a winner and a game fighter.
If you have not yet entered your name inlthe contest, do so as soon as
For any further information call up the Contest Manager of The Week.

credit up to noon on July 7th:

could possibly be. As to the connection
of the firm of Bowser, Walbridge & Reid
with the transaction, The Week has yet to
learn that the fact that the Attorney-General is a member of that firm 'should debar
them from undertaking any legitimate
business, but in this particular case it does
know that Mr. Bowser took no part in the
transaction, and. it is doubtful whether he
even knew that his firm was acting in the
matter. It is in a position to state, and
of this the Times is well aware, that Mr.
Bowser was no party to the rescinding
Order in Council of May llth. He was
absent at the time, there was no opportunity to consult him, and his own utterances in Vancouver a few days before furnish abundant evidence to any fair mind
that he was not in favour of any such
rescinding motion, and the possibility of
such a thing was not present to his mind.
This is all that need be said, except that it
is a peculiar political creed which requires
its organ to lie wholesale, and to besmirch
the characters of citizens of respectability
and standing like Mr. Veitch, Mr. T. A.
Ker and Mr. G. M. Davis, all men of substance and status in the community, and
men with whom many of the citizens of
Victoria have had business transactions of
the most satisfactory character.
Dr. Michael Clark, of Red Deer, may be
a modest man. If so, he must have prayed
fervently on Monday evening last to be
"saved from his friends." It is rather
embarrassing, even when one is a Liberal
orator, to be introduced to an audience a3
"the New Star from the East." After
listening to Dr. Clark the unprejudiced
hearer, if there be such a thing, would be
more inclined to compare him to a skyrocket than a skypilot. He certainly went
up like a rocket, even if he came down like
the stick. Undoubtedly Dr. Clark started
off well, and the audience had visions of
a broad and comprehensive review of the
Tariff Question, but after the first twenty
minutes it became apparent that the "star"
would not fill his engagement so far as
discussing Reciprocity was concerned. He
claims to be a logician, and the claim was
endorsed by the Liberal press, and by his
Liberal sponsors, but he soon degenerated
into sophistry and then, flinging argument
to the winds, launched out into what after
all was obviously, with set purpose, a
fluent tirade against tariffs and all forms
of protection and a rhetorical enconium on
universal Free Trade. From Dr. Clark's
standpoint the whole thing was well done.
He is a big man with a big voice and that
skill in using it which can only be
acquired by open-air speakers accustomed
to addressing large crowds. To the emotional listener he is both convincing and
satisfying. After he has been talking for
ten minutes this class of hearer has the
same comfortable feeling which results to
a famished man from a hot bowl of soup,
and thereafter all is plain sailing. Dr.
Clark's speech is referred to in greater detail elsewhere; suffice it to say here that he
came not to preach Reciprocity, but Free
Trade, and therefore his address formed
but a very unimportant contribution to the
discussion of the Reciprocity Agreement
and trade conditions as they exist today.
Before concluding this personal reference
to Dr. Clark it may not be out of place,
since he came heralded by such a blast of
trumpets, not only as the "Star," but as
the Salvation of the Liberal party of the"
West, to refer to the Lacombe Advertiser
of Oct. lath, 1908, for some account of
Dr. Clark's public stand on the questions
of the day during the last Federal campaign. There is an editorial which goes
into full detail as to why Dr. Clark's campaign was called "The Grit Whiskey Campaign," but for furthers particulars The
Week refers its readers to the original
publication. It is more concerned with
Drt Clark's attitude on public questions,
and this is- the light in which he was
viewed by his fellow citizens. "A Free
Trader, an opponent of all Preference as
wrong, a disapprover of Tariffs, one who
called Reciprocity between mother and
daughter—England and Canada—tyranny
and oppression, a pro-Boer, a litle Eng-
lander." No one will deny that Dr.
Clark is fully entitled to hold all these
views; it is one of the privileges which he
enjoys as a British subject. The reason
The Week refers to them is simply in
order that Victorians may know his viewpoint on the relation of Canada and the
Motherland, and judge the value of his
espousal of Reciprocity with the States
accordingly. It is not surprising that Dr.
Clark belongs to the little England camp;
he is a Newcastle man, a disciple of Joe
Cowen, one of the most brilliant speakers
and one of the most uncompromising anti-
monarchists of the last century. Dr.
Clark's address was a sample of what has
been heard at any time during the last
fifty years at the street corners and in the
public parks of England, and is exactly of
the same strain as those speeches which
have rendered the Reformers' Tree in
Hyde Park the rallying-point of all tho
political discontents and all the anarchical
malcontents in England.
At last the Colonist has acceded to the
request of The Week and has come out
to support that usually ignored journel in
its fight against "postal delay." The
Week has fought this matter single-handed
for six years, and during that time has
submitted scores of cases to the local management similar to the one which has
finally aroused the Colonist to action. The
Week wishes to say that the postal service
in Victoria is easily the worst in Canada.
It would have no difficulty in demonstrating this. The fault does not lie with the
Postmaster, or his very competent and
courteous deputy. It lies with the Government, which will not pay sufficient
money to secure or retain competent men.
Mr. Templeman claims that he still represents Victoria in a Ministerial sense. If
he feels the slightest responsibility ho
should certainly be willing to vender some
assistance in straightening out one of the
worst of our local tangles. THE  WEEK,  SATURDAY,  JULY  8,  1911

It must be at least four years since
I was last down at the Gorge Park
in the evening. In fact, I have only
been there twice in that period, and
on both occasions the day was a
Sunday, and I had therefore no idea
of the numerous attractions which
have from time to time been provided for the amusement of the public. I realised this last Tuesday and
made up my mind to have a lounge
in that direction, and when I returned I had some faint idea of the
feelings said to have been entertained
by the Queen of Sheba. Of course,
the thing which struck me most, as
it strikes all visitors, is the new
dancing pavilion which has so lately
been erected. I think that I had been
expecting a sort of converted shed
or something of that nature; I certainly was not prepared for the really
fine building which has been put up
by Mr. D'O Rochfort and which under the management of Mrs. Simpson and Mr. Clifford Denham is
drawing crowds every night to the
popular playground. The floor seems
to be the last word in floor-laying,
possessing a perfect surface and being
resilient to a degree. The hall will
accommodate 150 couples comfort*
ably and it has already been called
upon to do so. Altogether there
can be no doubt that this new addi
tion lo the Gorge Park is one of the
best that could have been made.' But
there are other attractions which I
personally had never seen there.
Shooting galleries, Skiddoo Houses
(which I "funked"), merry-go-rounds
Aunt Sallies and, above all, moving
pictures. These latter I had seen
long ago, but I am in a position to
say that the present pictures being
exhibited are far clearer than those of
years back. The whole effect of the
Gorge Park in the evenings is charm
irig. The fairy-like approach, the picturesque tea-gardens, the illuminated
bridges, the brilliantly lighted dance-
hall, the gay shooting booths and the
fascinating picture screen—all in their
turn contribute to make Victoria's
pleasure ground one of beauty and
enjoyment. It is like a scene from
the Arabian Nights, with Mr. Clifford
Denham playing the part of Aladdin.
To him and the B. C. E. R. be all
credit for giving us somewhere to go,
and something to do on the long,
warm evenings which ought to be
with us now.   ^   #   ^
And this reminds me that I have
received complaints from residents*in
Gorge View Park, that district which
lies between the Gorge Road and the
Burnside Road, that they are faring
verv badly at present with respect to
scnool accommodation. Though this
part of the neighbourhood is being
rapidly populated, the children have
to walk as far as the old Hudson's
Bay School, situated at the Craigflower Bridge. In some cases this
means over two miles each way. Of
course, in the old days this would
have been nothing. We know that
the estimable gentlemen whose names [
We abhor because from time immem-'
orial they have been held up to us as
examples of what we should be, the
gentlemen who made their fortunes
by picking up a pin or calling their
employer's attention to a lost halfpenny, went ten or more miles every
morning to school after having crone
all the chores before leaving, even
down to threading granny's needle.
But we are not they, and let us be
truly, thankful for it. We live in a
more advanced age, and seeing that
we boast proudly of our educational
advantages, it ought not to be possible for the enemy to find occasion
against us. I therefore respectfully
submit to the Municipality of Saanich
that they consider the advisability of
erecting a new school.
*   *   *
And talking of walking and of our
hardy   ancestors   brings   me   most-.
naturally to those valiant heroes, the
members of the Fifth Regiment. On
Tuesday, June 27th, the Fifth Regiment marched into Victoria after undergoing their annual training in
camp. At least that is what ninety-
nine people out of a* hundred would
tell you. But the hundredth person
might perhaps be slightly more accurate, in which case he would say
that on the date mentioned the Fifth
Regiment marched to the car line at
the entrance to Macaulay Plains and
there entrained; that they rode in
leisurely glory to Government Street,
and then came marching home. When
L first heard this I refused to believe
it, and made enquiries with disastrous
results, for I discovered then that the
Fifth Regiment not only came back
by car, but when out originally by
car, and that they had even used the
cars on Coronation Day. Great
shades of Tommy Atkins! Are our
gallant defenders so enervated that a
few miles' march is too much for their
delicate constitutions? Veterans of
the Fifth who were in the corps ten
years ago tell me that then they used
to march out, indulge in a sham battle all day and march back again, and
even that does not strike one as being
anything out of the way. Does it not
seem to be really and truly somewhat
of a farce that a regiment undergoing
its training should be coddled to this
extent? Before concluding this paragraph I would take the words out of
the mouths of my critics-to-be. Some
one will say, "This is a fine way for
the Lounger to talk, who doesn't even
make a bluff at preparing himself to
fight his country's battles." In answer
to which I would say that I underwent three years' training at Cambridge and am the proud possessor of
an Efficiency Certificate signed by the
Adjutant of the C. U. R. V. A'i.d we
never used a street car.

Some few years ago an attempt was
made to breed lobsters on the West
coast. The crustaceans were brought
from the East and laid down, and not
long ago a notice appeared in the
papers to say that all had been destroyed. It is not without interest,
therefore, that readers will learn that
the other day a fisherman engaged in
clam hunting near the E. & N. Bridge
came across two clusters of lobsters
which, he declares, were in a perfectly
healty state. The man is well acquainted with the lobster industry and
speaks from experience. It will be a
great thing for the Coast if these
lobsters are the nucleus of a thriving
crustacean community.
* *   *
I always was a bad hand at remembering names and attaching them to
the right places and faces, but rarely
have I failed as lamentably as I did
last week in this column. For some
reason or other I have been in thc
habit of mixing up Courtney, Broughton and Humboldt Streets, for which
there is the less excuse as I pass up
and down Courtney on an average six
times a day. However, the point is
this: I was making some mention of
a comparatively new automobile stand
in the vicinity of the Empress Hotel,
but instead of saying that it was on
Humboldt Street I placed it on Courtney. The stand on the latter street is
not the one to which I was referring.
Through a typographical error the
telephone number also was wrong and
should have been 299. The nature of
the paragraph was that of a little word
of commendation for the members of
this stand on Humboldt, who seem
to me to be most conveniently placed,
both from their own point of view
and that of the public.

Just four months ago a new club,
chiefly for young men, was formed in
Victoria and took the appropriate
naUie of the Camosun. On Wednesday night the members held a musi
cal evening to celebrate the success
which has attended the inception of
the club, and I was favoured with an
invitation to drop in and have a good
time. It was my misfortune that I
was unable to arrive early, and that I
had a car to catch which prevented
my staying late, for I could most certainly have spent one of the evenings of my life. I was amazed to
find that within the short time which
has elapsed since the foundation of
the club the membership roll has
reached 150, good fellows all. The
temporary club premises are situated^
in Langley Street, are exceedingly
comfortable and well furnished, and
include a fine billiard and pool room.
Victoria has always been singularly
badly equipped in the club line, the
Union and Pacific having sufficed for
many years. The Camosun, as it
seems to me, marks the beginning of
a new era in the city's clubdom, and
the success which has attended its
organisation speaks volumes for the
need which it fills. Here's prosperity
to the club and good luck to the
members from the

Bliss Carman was born at Frederic-
ton, N.B., in 1861. He is descended
from the United Empire Loyalists on
both sides of the family, his father
being William Carman, Clerk of the
Pleas and a man of considerably influence in; his Province.
His mother was one of the Blisses
of Fredericton, belonging to the Connecticut branch, of which Emerson is
a member. He was educated at the
Collegiate School in tFredericton and
later on he graduated at the university, there taking his bachelor of
arts degree at the early age of
twenty. He also studied for a time
at Edinburgh and Harvard, his special
subjects being mathematics and
For a time he edited the New
York Independent and took an active
interest in the Cosmopolitan and
Atlantic monthly magazines; he also
established the Chap Book.
His first volume of poems "Low
Tide on Grand Pre," a book in lyrics,
came out in 1893, being published in
London and New York.
In 1894 his "Songs from Daga-
bondia," appeared, and later on, "Behind the Arras" (a book of the unseen), came out, to meet with the
same success.
Among his other writings may be
mention "The Kinship of Nature," a
volume of essays, "Sappho," one
hundred lyrics founded upon fragments of the poems of the Grecian
poetess of old, "A Sea Mark," "By
the Aurelian Wall" and several
Mr. Carman's works have received
considerable recognition in the world
of letters, the characteristics of the
Canadian school being defined in his
intense love of nature, combined with
a freshness and keenness of interpretation; his style is decidedly that
of the lyrist and symbolist. His
home is in New York, but he spends
a part of his time in the provinces.

The word "reviver" spells the same backwards or forwards. Did you ever think what a good reviver is a glass
of good champagne? When in pain, mentally or physically, just try a "split" of G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Extra
Dry and you'll think your pain was only sham. If you
have that tired feeling or if the, blueness or summer
weariness is upon you, try Mumm's for a reviver. You
can pronounce Mumm's backwards also if you wish. It
is a good, quiet appelation worthy of the best wine produced. "Silence is Golden," so is Mumm's Champagne.
Order a split of G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Extra Dry today
at your club, cafe, bar or hotel, and see if it does not
prove a reviver in the best sense of hte word. Your
dealer can supply you with a case of splits for home
use. Pither and Leiser, Wholesale Agents, corner Fort

Youth  is   a   dream   of   tomorrow's
Finding a charm in each newborn
Gazing   with   shy   and   beseeching
Striving to fathom the far-away.
Ever the bliss of the unfulfilled,
Ever a dream of the days to come;
Joy that we never  have  known   is
Love that is deepest is ever dumb.
Age—it is naught but a memory,
Tear-misted dreams of a day long
Tender regrets for the things  that
Fast fading letters, a rose once red.
Tasting the fruit of fulfilled
Living again in the phanton
Tears for the dreams that coul

Tears for the love that could

fiil of the operator, the Corona-

a vivid impression'of some of
[most interesting features of a
ti pageant. The pictures were
[lated to arouse the enthusiasm
ly British audience in things Im-
II and military, and what made
I* all the more attractive was the
Ihat hundreds of those who wit-
tjd them were as familiar with the
Its of London as the streets of

the audience cheered and th'_
Iplayed the National Anthem.
I'ari  amusing  episode  occurred
showed that there are in Vic-
li few people who do not know
I'ning.      Most of the audience
naturally rose to their feet; a few
people at the back cried "Sit down!"
apparently under the impression that
the loyal British subjects who rose
were simply craning their necks to
get a better view of the pictures.
However, they will learn in time;
"dum spiro, spero." The exhibition
was one which excited great interest
and attracted all classes of people. It
was a testimony to the profound interest felt in all doings at the heart
of the Empire and a due recognition of the enterprise shown by
the management of the Victoria
Theatre in securing Coronation Pictures at the earliest possible moment
after the event. Only a,few years ago
if anyone had prophesied the exhibition of such pictures within fourteen
days of the Coronation he would have
been regarded as insane.

t'.ie -u-iii'1' ljl bal.in._ing perform*? ■ -cs
of De Frates, whose turn abounds in
thrills, the audience sitting spellbound as he contrives to maintain his
equilibrium in the most perilous postures. The Du Pars contribute a
graceful dancing act and are followed
by an amusing couple, the Vindo-
bonas, who with quaint costume,
freak instruments and real musical
ability contrive to keep the house
alternately roaring with laughter at
their antics and applauding their music. Miss Josephine Sabel is billed
to appear frorn Paris and to sing
songs "as only Sabel sings."   It is a j
fair comment to say that the attitude
of the house oh Monday night would
lead the average theatre-goer to believe that the general opinion was
that it is a good thing that only Sabel
sings them. The concluding item is
filled by the Ferrell Brothers, whose
bicycling feats are clever and amusing in the highest degree.

Cities," which appeared at. the Majestic on Wednesday and Thursday.
I have no hesitation in saying that
without exception this is the very best
film that I have ever seen unreeled.
The staging is excellent and,the films
are remarkably clear. The Vitagraph
people have achieved a notable triumph with this three-reel film, and the
Majestic has one more feather to display on its sign-board. I never before realised that there was an organ
in this house, or else it is certainly a
very long time since I have heard it
played, but twice this week the ac*
compaying 'slow music' was rendered
on it and was much appreciated. By
installinganew ventilating scherhe Mr.
Christie would appear to have done
the last best thing in making the Majestic a top-hole house.
The Crystal
It was a great disappointment to
the management of the Crystal and
to the general public that the Coronation Pictures did not arrive in time
to be shown on Wednesday night.
However, by the time that these lines
appear doubtless they will be on view.
The piece de resistance early in the
week was a dramatic protrayal of the
famous Apochryphal story of Judith
and Holofemes. The staging for this
unique picture was magnificent, nothL
ing being omitted which could add to
the gorgeousness of the surroundings
and the barbaric horror of the assas
sination. But what amused me most
was the conversation of two old ladies
behind me who had not caught the
title and were evidently not well
versed in the Apocrypha. Their running comment was "great."
The Romano Theatre
Messrs. Quaggliotti scored heavily
this week by having their Coronation
Pictures on the screen right on the
minute for which they had been advertised. The pictures are excellent
and show up remarkably well on thc
Romano screen. These pictures are
practically confined to the procession,
but in addition is a short film giving
an idea of the naval power of Grea!
Britain as evidenced at Spithead. Another big drawing card in the middle
of the week was a representation of
"The Deluge," the appearance of
Noah being the signal for great -'-

The Kirkes
A Genealogical Study by an
(A newspaper paragraph appearing
in the Colonist of May 30th, mentions the death on May 28th of Mrs.
Elinor Venables Wilson-Brown, an
old resident of Victoria, who died at
the ripe age of 91. Mrs. Wilson-
Brown came to Victoria in 1862 and
for many years kept a high-class
school for the teaching of English
and music. She was very well known
in the city and was a popular member of the community.)
An oaken chest with "A. K„ 1681"
graven on its front was recently
found among the effects of the deceased Mrs. Elinor Venables Vernon
Wilson-Brown. I may not be correct
on all points, but, having conversed
on the subject with Mrs. Brown, I
believe that the initials are of "Arnold
Kirke of Martinside," in the parish
of Chapel-en-le-Frith, North Derbyshire, England. (I spell the name
"Kirke" with an "i," instead of the
older form with a "y.")
The Kirkes are said to have lived
in that neighbourhood, as considerable landowners, from the 13th century, but the records are scanty before the beginning of the 16th century, when "Whitehough" (Whitc-
hagh), about a mile west of the
church in the above parish, was their
residence. It is known, however, that
in 14S0 (reign of Henry VI.) a daughter- of Kirke of Whitehough married
Sir Richard Salisbury of the county
of Leicester. So in Henry VII.'s
reign (1509-47) a daughter of that
house married William Bradshawe
of Bradshawe Hall, whose family,
later, was elevated to the peerage.
The male Whitehough line lasted for
seven or eight generations, until the
middle of the 18th century.
An offshoot, early in the 16th century, settled at "Martinside," about
two miles from Whitehough, on the-
other side of the parish. Arnold
Kirke of Martinside appears in
1S84-S, and 1S99, in the Duchy of
Lancaster, Calendar of Pleas, as an
important freeholder. He died in
1622, and was succeeded by his son,
Arnold, and by male descendants well
into the 19th century.
A brother, Henry, in 1654, purchased the "Eaves" estate, thus constituting another offshoot, which, to
the present time, has been represented by well connected lineal descendants, squires, lawyers and
An additional, very notable, offshoot had its ancestor in Thurston
Kirke, youngest son of the first
Arnold Kirke bf Whitehough, who is
first known definitely to us. Thurston took up his abode at Grennell
(Greenhill Hall), not far south of
Sheffield, in a district of which
the village of Norton, mentioned in Domesday, is the
centre. The house is one of
the few old houses remaining there,
small but with a certain dignity about
it, perhaps due, in part, to association in the observer's mind with the
remarkable family connected with it,
known popularly as the "Kirkes of
Norton," as will be mentioned in the
It was the Martinside family, above
mentioned, from which the late Mrs.
Brown ' descended. Her father,
Thomas Penson, married Frances
■Kirke of Martinside. Mrs. Brown
lived at Martinside, occasionally, in
her youth, and described to me the
black and white, 26-room house, "as
big as a church," mostly built of timber, with a centre and two wings,
old armour and swords hanging in
the halls; also "The Widow's Corner,"
consisting of two sitting rooms, two
bedrooms and kitchen, set aside in
-one of the wings, for the widow of
the last owner, if he left one, so that
she might not be driven from the
house by the heir. Henry Kirke's
widow exercised this privilege as late
as 1789, when the estate passed to
his nephew, Richard Kirke, the late
Mrs. Wilson-Brown's grandfather.
Richard left the neighbourhood to reside in Wales, taking with him everything of interest from Martinside, including the old chest. Martinside
house and land were let to Adam Fox,
a servant and tenant connected with
the family for 70 years. Grandfather
Kirke died in 1839, and his son James
sold Martinside to the said Fox, who
had saved enough to buy it. The
house was pulled down in the middle
"forties" of the last century. After
the transferance of the chest to her
grandfather's new residence in Wales,
Mrs. Brown, who was born in 1819,
practically never lost sight of it, and
the chest and some other Martinside
effects and relics came ultimately to
her by inheritance,' and were brought
by her husband and herself to Victoria, B. C.
A little more flirting with genealogy
may perhaps be allowed to a Scotchman respecting a family of the old
English upper yeoman class, than
which very few families in the pre-
industrial day of the nation, have a
better record of sucess, a family, not
of known English-Norman descent,
yet, in its comparatively modern
achieving time, now to be described,
with good Norman-French blood in
its veins.
Go back to Thurston, hereinbefore
mentioned, who settled at Grennell.
He had several sons, the eldest, Ger-
vase, born in 1568, who, when the defeat of the Armada (1588) stimulated
commercial enterprises, went to London, of which he became a distinguished citizen. He married Elizabeth Goudon, or Goudin, of Deepe
(Dieppe) in Normandy, and all his
large family won more or less distinction. Few of them lived at Grenhill
Hall, except as visitors to their father's birthplace. His eldest son,
David Kirke, was in the London office, but, in an age when no commerce on the seas could be conducted
without readiness to fight, he exchanged the pen for the sword. The
following appears in the printed
calendars of the Privy Council: "May
27, 1631. Captain David Kirke was
examined before Sir Henry Marten.
He was employed as chief commander
in the voyages to Canada in 1628,
at the charge of his late father, Ger-
vase Kirke, and, in 1628, by Sir Wm.
Alexander, Gervase Kirke (presumably the above Gervase's son) and
others. Took possession of all Canada, except Quebec, in the first voyage, and in the last of Quebec also;
but knew not of the peace between
England and France. Was attacked
by a French pinnance, Emery de
Caen, commander, who killed two of
his crew and wounded 12 to 16
Further, according to the "Privy
Council Reports," December 1, 1631,
honourable additions to their arms
were granted to Captain Kirke and
his brothers.
"Grant of arms to Captain David
Kirke, Lewis Kirke, governor of
Canada, Captain Thomas Kirke and
James Kirke, for valour in vanquishing the French fleet under the command of M. de Roquemont, admiral,
and bringing him prisoner to England. The coat-armour of Mr. Roquemont is granted to Captain David
Kirke, and to his brothers and their
issue forever."
King Charles I., being in Scotland,
sent for and knighted Captain David
Kirke in 1633. Sir David married Sara,
daughter of Sir Joseph Andrews, and
in 1637, obtained from the King a
grant of the whole island of Newfoundland, whither he went to found
a colony, with a King's licence, the
validity of which was not them entirely unquestioned in the House of
Commons. He met with difficulties
there, and during the commonwealth
1652, was summoned to England and
examined before the Privy Council,
nothing loath, probably, to "trim" so
ardent a Royalist, but, after the investigation, Sir David Kirke returned
to Newfoundland, and, not long afterwards, died there.
The second son of Gervase Kirke
of London was Lewis, who commanded one of. the ships in his
brother's expedition, and was appointed governor of Canada. He is
so described in the above grants of
arms. Peace being declared, Lewis
returned to England, and was
knighted in 1643, as a distinguished
cavalier, and made governor of Bridgnorth Castle, Salop, and paymaster
and standard bearer to the Honourable Company of Gentleman at Arms,
dying in 1664.
John, among other agencies, was
mercantile agent in London of the
Marquis of Hamilton, Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery, and the Earl
of Holland, who, it reads oddly to
us, dealt in fish among other commodities, for they complained to the
Privy Council of his having sold their
fish under its value.
George was groom of the bed
chamber to Charles I., whom, it is
said, he attended on the scaffold
(1649). Charles II., after the Restoration, made him gentleman of the
robes, and in 1664, granted him a
pension of £500 a year. He died in
1679, and his wife, Mrs. Anne Kirke,
who had been lady of the bed chamber to Queen Henrietta Maria, then
obtained a pension of £250 a year.
George Kirke had two daughters and
several sons. His eldest daughter,
Mary, who was very beautiful, was
maid of honour to the Duchess of
York in 1674, and afterwards wife of
Sir Thos. Vernon of Hodnet, county
of Salop, who deserted her. The
other, daughter, Diana, married thc
last De Vere, Earl of Oxford.
It would hardly do to omit all mention, here, of the famous or notorious
Colonel Percy (or Piercy) Kirke,
eldest son of the afore-mentioned
George Kirke, though some say, of
Sir Lewis Kirke. My notes on this
point are not decisive, but I incline
to Lewis. Anyway, Charles II., in
1673, permitted Percy to serve in the
army of France. Afterward, he was
captain-li-sutenant of- the Horse
Guard Troop raised in 1675 by his
brother-in-law, the Earl of Oxford,
and served in the Tangier regiment
in Morocco, where -Tangier was an
English fortress. Returning to England in 1684, Percy became colonel
of the Second Fort. That regiment,
being permitted to bear on its colours
the "Paschal Lambs" for having been
guard of honour to Charles H.'s
Queen on her progress to London,
became known popularly as the
"Lambs," and, for a time, "Kirke's
Lambs." His severity after the victory of Sedgemoor—the last battle
fought on English ground—has
blackened his memory. He hanged
the unhappy rebel captives by scores
on the sign post of the White Hart
Inn at Taunton, but the Powers that
were made him a lieutenant-general.
Marrying a daughter of the Earl of
Suffolk, he had a son, also called
Percy, who reached the like army
rank, and died in 1741, at the age
of 57. Many other grandsons and
great grandsons of Gervase Kirke won
distinction in both armv and navy.
Verily, these Derbyshire yeomen, in
every situation during peace and war,
typify the makers of England, and
largely of the Empire which, we hope,
is to be.
Not a little, thus, is it, that, with
these few hints, the old oaken chest
may recall?
NOTE.—Strangely (see page 2) my
notes do not give me the address of
Richard Kirke in Wales, after he
went there from Martinside in Derbyshire.
Possibly Miss Peers knows or may
discover this, from the numerous letters and papers among Mrs. Brown's
Probably it is the Eaves branch that
has surviving male representatives.
Henry, of the Eaves, died in 1833,
aged 82.
In the "Reliquary," a quarterly
archaeological journal and review, No.
21, Vol. VI., April, 1866, Henry
Kirke, M. A., writes  of the Parish
Registers of Chapel-on-le-Frith, Derbyshire, and, at the end of his paper,
gives his address "The Eaves, Chapel-
on-le-Frith." He may also have been
minister of that parish. Since then
45 years have passed; it may have
been he or his successor at the Eaves
who, some time ago, is said to have
desired to acquire the chest for $500.
When sentiment intervenes a few
hundred dollars, one way or another,
is nothing. It is possible the Quebec Museum might pay a good price
for the chest. That is why I have
in the accompanying scoll of a letter mentioned the French blood in
the Kirkes, and rather enlarged the
account of the conquest of Canada
and capture of Quebec strictly from
official documents.
Going, last night, to bed one of my
little old books, "Rudiments of
Honour," 8th ed., corrected to the
year 1728, "Printed for H. Lintot,
Fleet St., London," fell off the table
and, in picking it up, what caught my
eye (page 109) but the name of
"Kirk," in an account of the great
Duke (then Earl) of Marborough?
This is the paragraph:
'"In 1691 he made the campaign,
under King William, in The Netherlands, where Prince Vandemont gave
the King this chapter of his Lordship.
"Th,ere is something in the Earl of
Marlborough that is irrepressible, for
the fire of Kirk, the thought of Lanier, the skill of Mackay and the
bravery of Colchester seem united in
his person," etc., etc.
The reference is to Sir Percy Kirke,
whose memory, I have said, was
blackened by cruelties after Sedge-
moor, so that we now class him almost with Jeffreys, but here we see
that six years later the above-named
Prince, in describing Marlborough to
the King, thought first of Kirke
among the English soldier worthies
contributing to Marlborough's makeup. It is only fair to remember this
testimony to Percy Kirke's military
character, distinguishing him, for instance, from .such commanders as
later the butcher of Culloden and in
his own time from the ever infamous
Jefferys. Kirke was but a colonel and
may have acted under orders from
James IL, conveyed through Jefferys
perhaps or some other source.

ble repair work, by re-timbering, replacing ties, etc. The
tap mill I find to be in excellent condition, and with a few
repairs milling can be resumed at immediate notice. On
end D'Or Group, which is opened up to the 300-foot level

ce of No. 2 a good ore chute, which extends to the surface,
200 feet of back,
n the floor of No. 3 tunnel there is a strong chute of ore
ing for 250 to 260 feet, which seems to be going down,

Struck the ledge in the No. 4 tunnel, now in 562 feet, and

soon as the slightest indication of anything doubtful was evident,
. and long before the general public had any suspicions, by not
merely withdrawing frgm. sale all shares in the Steamboat Mountain Gold Mines, Ltd., but also by taking every opportunity of
urging the investing public to "go slow" and await more definite
proofs of the district's wealth before "plunging" in the shares of
the various companies already floating stock in the Steamboat
camp on the market.
This course of action had its due effect, and the B. C. Mining
Exchange takes pleasures in pointing out that, as a result, the general investing public, who are ready and more than ready to "go
the limit" in the line of gold mine speculation, have been thereby
caused to exercise a prudent hesitation until the camp shall have
proved itself, which has saved a lot of people from wasting their
An emergency meeting of the shareholders of the Steamboat
Mountain Gold Mines, Ltd., was held on the 26th instant at Vancouver, and, though the press was excluded, our enterprising contemporary, the Vancouver Province, managed to secure a report
of the proceedings, which we reproduce hereunder. We may say
here that, from careful private inquiry, the B. C. Mining Exchange
is satisfied that this report is a correct one of the proceedings.
Our contemporary says:
"We are very anxious to get hold of Stevens and Greenwalt,
and if we can secure their presence here we will give them an
opportunity to explain how it is that the rock in place at Steamboat
Mountain carries 60-cent values, while the wash at the same place
runs to high values; you can get as high values as you wish in the
wash—it all depends on how much the wash is tested."
This, in brief, is the story of Steamboat Mountain Gold Mines,
Ltd., the pioneer discovery of the Steamboat Mountain District, as
it was related last night by Mr. C. D. Rand, fiscal agent of the
company, at art emergency meeting of shareholders held at the
Vancouver Stock Exchange.
Despite the body blow received by the company at Steamboat, Mr. Rand expressed the belief that it could "come back,"
and the losses it had sustained might be recovered through the
securing of some other mineral property. This suggestion was
assented to by the shareholders, and the company is not yet prepared to go to the boneyard. But before any asset in the shape
of another property is placed to the credit of the company, an
action will be launched against Stevens and Greenwalt in the
courts to recover the shares they still hold in the company and
for damages because of alleged fraudulent representations concerning the values contained in Steamboat ore.
Would Hunt Down Men
Mr. Rand explained that in the opinion of the expert engineers
who had but a few days ago completed a thorough examination
of the property, it had been scientifically "salted."
Declaring that he was willing to subscribe $500 to a fund to
be devoted to tracing Stevens and Greenwalt in order that they
mjght be brought back to Vancouver, Mr. A. E. Woods, managing
director of the V., W. & Y. Railway and a shareholder in the company, expressed the opinion that everything possible should be
done to get hold of the two men.
Mr. Woods' views were expressed after the whole painful
story had been placed before the meeting by Mr. Rand. The suggestion that Stevens and Greenwalt be located and brought back
to Vancouver met with the hearty approval of the meeting.
"We are very well aware how difficult it is to prove that a
mine has been 'salted,'" remarked Mr. R. S. Lennie, solicitor of
the company, "but within the past few days we have secured
what in our opinion is sufficient evidence to cover the situation »n
this case. The directors have made every possible effort to locate
Stevens and Greenwalt, and we would be very glad indeed to get
hold of them,"
Will Sue "Discoverers"
The situation having been fully explained by Mr. Rand ancl
Mr. Lennie, and thoroughly threshed out by the shareholders,
some seventy of whom attended the meeting, the following resolution, proposed by Mr. Rand, seconded by Mr. Robert Hamilton,
was carried unanimously:
"Whereas, It has been made to appear to the directors and
shareholders of this company that the sale to the company of the
'Steamboat,' 'Steamboat No. 2' and 'Steamboat No. 3' mineral
claims by Dan Greenwalt, Cora B. Greenwalt and W. A. Stevens
was made upon false and frudulent representations concerning the
values contained in the ore and in other ways;
"Be it therefore, Resolved, That the solicitor to the company
be instructed to take such steps as many be necessary to rescind
the sale and recover from the said vendors their shares in pool
with the trustees, and secure such other remedies in damages, or
otherwise, as may be obtainable by any action in the courts the
said solicitor may advise in the premises."
Possible Damages
It is understood that a suit to recover the pooled stock of
Stevens and Greenwalt, amounting to 380,000 shares, will be
launched within the next few days. It is stated that as part ot
this action damages will be claimed from Stevens and Greenwalt
in the amount of the sums they secured by the sale of 220,000
shares of the total of 600,000 shares of stock allotted them in the
company in return for the transfer of the three Steamboat claims
to the company.   Mr. Lennie announced at the meeting that if

Grand Trunk Pacilic Investors
The construction of tho new transcontinental railway—the Gran
Trunk Pacific—is to-day opening up new towns that in the very ne
future will be large and important cities.    Just as the advent of t'
pioneer transcontinental line—The Canadian Pacific—opened and built
divisional points such as Brandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc.,
will the new line of the Grand Trunk make large divisional points of *
towns we now offer for sale.         .;.._. .

ji not hold out any great hope that the claims would be worth

Two Kinds of Gold
During the. course of his statement, Mr. Rand said that during
\ past few weeks some of the best mining engineers had thor-
ghly examined the scene of the alleged finds of gold, as well as
jry other property in the district on which any work had been
je. They had reported that the values found did not justify
Ir expenditure on development work. They had spent over two
eks in the district.   It was declared by these engineers that
gold in the rock in place at the Steamboat Mountain Gold
pes property—running 60 cents to the ton—was a different gold
jthat from in the wash which carried the famous high values,
they asserted that the gold in the wash had not come from
\ vein they were able to find on the claims.
Stevens' Report Questioned
Mr. Lennie, in discussing the prospectus issued by the com-
ly, declared that every statement in it was absolutely correct
'ar as the representations made by the directors were concerned,
I there was some question about the truthfulness of the signed
prt on the Steamboat properties made by W. A. Stevens, and
)rporated in the prospectus. Here is an extract from the signed
S»rt of Stevens:
i "The Steamboat is a free-gold property, has a well defined
fe eight feet wide between walls, and has been exposed by
jre and open cuts for a distance of 320 feet along the ledge,
irty laboratory mill tests give returns of $17.80 per ton in free
II for the entire 320 feet. These values run much higher in
|ys, and do not include high grade ore."
May Recover Losses
[Mr. Rand declared that if the shareholders were willing to
peed he had hopes of pulling the company out of the hole in
ch it found itself. He said there was a balance of $500 in the
Isury, and all debts had been paid. He desired to have the
prtunity of securing some other property for the company,
said there was a chance that the losses of the shareholders
tet be recouped. He declared that he was now, at his own
fnse, investigating one property which might be worth the
>any's while to take hold of and develop.  He declared he held
h times as much interest in the company as any other share-
|er, and desired a chance to recover, through the medium of
other property, the money which had been lost in the
iboat. After the meeting Mr. Rand stated that the property
las in view is not situated in the Steamboat district,
[just before the passing of the resolution proposed by Mr.
and seconded by Mr. Robert Hamilton, an amendment to
■[effect that the meeting pass a vote of censure on the fiscal
|t, Mr. Rand, was offered by Mr. Henry Cooke, but it failed
id a single supporter, and Mr. Cooke letf the meeting.
It was announced at the meeting that a report that Green-
1 had gone to Valdez, Alaska, had been investigated, but no
I of the man had been found.
It is unfortunate that so many Canadian promoters are blind
fe condition of the London market and to the best interests of
Idian credit.   Despite the warnings from prominent bankers
lthe London public is suffering from financial indigestion,
Idian stock and bond offerings continue to be served.    A
Idian banker in London in a recent interview stated that the
Is being made to place the securities of Canadian industrial
|ers on the British market will be extremely costly to Canada
end, though a few individuals will make small fortunes in
lieantime.   "It is known," he said, "that the cities of Toronto
lontreal could do with more money, but do not care to face
Iresent adverse conditions as evidenced in the reception given
|e Vancouver and Winnipeg issues.   Seventy-three per cent.
latter was left with the underwriters, though,'in this case,
jlritish general public outside the market took up more than
lid of Vancouver and Hamilton. The congestion in this class
lir per cent, issues does not apply to Canada alone, but Canada
jufferer in sympathy with others and must pay the penalty
po great success in obtaining high prices in the past.   The
trial issues are too professedly high to suit the London mar-
lyhich is congested and wants a rest."
["hese are plain words.   Our borrowings in London have been
this year.   During the first five months Canada obtained
[523,297 overseas through the medium of public flotations.   It

large number of the prospectuses. In the case of several timber
propositions, the lacking is. found in the estimate of the contents
of the properties. With other companies there is a sad omission
of figures respecting past accounts. Several concerns representing
comparatively recent mergers have failed to give information as
to the operations of the individual companies, prior to amalgamation. These are glaring omissions and the British investor cannot
be blamed for turning his attention to securities which offer a
good rate of interest and safety and at the same time are open
to the closest examination.
Another complaint is one respecting the over-capitilization of
various Canadian companies marketing their securities overseas.
The stock watering which has been employed in many cases will
not be tolerated by the British investor. Altogether some of our
promoters are ruining the present market for Canadian issues and
blotting the escutcheon of Canadian credit.

Canadian and otherwise, are discouraging this wild speculative
gallop of London. There is consolation in the fact that these
bankers have performed their duty. If this foolish invasion continues, the leading underwriters interested in our enterprises will
probably agree, as they did in the summer of 1909, not to undertake any new flotations of the Dominion for several months. This
will stop the flow of British capital to Canada through its principal channel. It may happen that the Coronation festivities and
the summer holiday season following will prevent this action by
the underwriters. In any case, it seems assured that a check to
our free borrowing will be applied.
The following table shows that some of the recent new issues
have not fared as well as they might have done:—

San Antonio Land, 6 p.c     1,200,000 99 97^
The San Antonio Land Company is an enterprise in which
Dr. F. S. Pearson is largely interested. That 97J4 per cent, of
his six per cent, bond issue should be left with the underwriters
is a significant indication of market conditions. It would be advisable for those intending to float loans in the near future to
postpone operations uritil a more opportune time. This is the
kind of advice, however, that is scarcely ever taken. The alternative is to receive the refusal, in due course, of the leading underwriters to accept any more proposals until the issued securities
are absorbed.—The Monetary Times.
The exposure of stock swindlers often reacts upon the stock
exchange, because in the minds of the little investors all securities—good and bad—are the product of Wall Street. Every collapse of a get-rich-quick bubble makes it more difficult to interest
the victims in real securities. It is recognized in the financial community that .the U. S. Government's campaign against the fakers
has actually hurt Wall Street. In the end, of course, honest, going
corporations, will be immeasurably benefited.
A reason for the success of the wild-cat stock sellers in getting
rid of their wares is the very heavy appropriation for selling expenses.   Most of these shares are sold for a commission of 40 per
cent. The rake-off runs as high as 90 per cent. One stock issue
of a near-industrial was sold for five times the cost of the stock
to the agents and the company received $150,000 of the $750,000
subscribed by the shareholders. With such a margin of profit it
is common for stock sellers to spend from $20 to $40 to get $100.
As one of the largest American advertisers says, you can sell anything if you spend enough advertising.
An examination of the letters and printed matter sent broadcast over the country by the stock fakers shows that they are
cleverly written to appeal to persons of small means. Much of
this literature, it is true, is of the wildest kind, but through it all
there is the effort to meet the little investor on his own level of
financial intelligence. If Wall Street took half the trouble these
gentry do in reaching the millions of savings bank depositors, salaried people and wage-earners, there would be an enormously
increased demand for real securities. The business of Wall Street
is the selling of securities, and it sells something like a billion
dollars a year; but there is less "scientific salesmanship" in Wall
Street's business than in any other great American business.
Another secret of the parasites' success is that they cut their
wares up into small denominations. The par of their shares is
$1 or $5 or $10—seldom any more. The small investor likes to
buy many shares; he will unhesitatingly prefer a hundred dollar-
shares to one $100 share. The French and the English realize
this. They cut their highest grade securities into small denominations. We must learn to do it if we would develop the broadest
market for our securities. If the Standard Oil shares were cut
into tenths the company would soon have 50,000 shareholders
instead of 5,000.
While the get-rich-quick game is being killed by the U. S.
Government—well, wild-catters can operate under its nose to their
heart's content.
During May the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company
received 26,186 tons of ore and smelted 29,000 tons. The total
output for the month was $387,400 arid of this sum 63 per cent of
the values were in gold.
Last month the percentage of gold values was 45 per cent.,
giving an increase in the value of gold ores smelter ol if. pei cent
Since June 30, 1910, the company has produced $4,095,000
value of metals.

"Dick" McBride of B.C
By T. P. O'Connor, M.P.
Reprinted from the Daily Chronicle, London, June 9th, 1911
Tonight an influential gathering of
[ithe powerful men in finance and politics who "are interested in the d'evel-
;opment of British Columbia will meet
;to do honour at a banquet to the
'Hon. Richard McBride, the Prime
■(Minister of that Province. To all
(men in his Province, to all Canadians, he is known by. the less official
and formal title of "Dick" McBride.
And very appropriately Mr. McBride
belongs to that order of popular political figures to whom the masses instinctively show at once respect and
affection by preferring to call them
jby their abbreviated Christian name
rather than by formal and cold prose
of their official title and their full
Christian surname.
First let me try to maice my reader
Irealize the mighty country of which
Mr. McBride is, and has been now
for nearly a decade, the controlling
force. British Columbia comes upon
vou as a mighty and most affrighting
Surprise. For days, perhaps weeks,
Vou have been passing through the
H>cean prairie of the great Province
Jif Saskatchewan, where night and
|llay you look out on that tremendous
ppanse of flat, yellow-grassed, black-
Boiled fields that in the latter part of
(he year will be thousands of miles
(if waving corn. But the flatness, un-
jiroken to the horizon, and unrelieved
liy even a hillock or a tree, begins in
tjie end to pall and even depress you,
|.nd in the winter time you cannot
[rell visualize the opulent splendour
1>f this flat yellow and black land-
cape that stretches before you to
engths as illimitaule as the spheres.
■n Alberta the landscape begins to
ie relieved by the ranch farms and
he sight of frequent houses and hu-
fian faces, and horses and cattle;
jut there, also, you have the illimit-
ble flatness for many long stretches
tf miles until you begin to see in the
iY distance the mountains.
•But in Alberta the mountains still
Dok small—they are not, but dis-
ance makes them look so. And then
ou wake up from your disturbed
lumber in the railway train, and as
:i a flash you will find yourself tran-
ported to a region where all around
ou gigantic mountains, with tops
ither enveloped in frowning mist or
bvered   with    eternal    snow,    look
' own you,* and excite and seem even
menace you. You wind in and out
Irer bridges that seem like spider-at-
:mpts to crawl through the narrow
laces left by these terrible circum-
nbient and frowning mountains;
iu arc continually in the deafening
ar of great rivers falling precipit-
isly down rocky beds, or sudden
aterfalls—in short, you are in the
idst of natural scenery as beautiful
i solemn, and as affrighting as the
igion of Zermatt and the Matter-
And then in time you make your
icape from this region of mystery
|id terror, and by and by you begin
feel on your cheek the soft breezes j
the sea.   You arc approaching the
Iacific, and as you approach it you
:come conscious of an entire trans-
rmation in your environment. Fin-
illy you get to, the wild bustle of
acouver, and there they will take
iu to a park with gigantic trees,
ith the greenest and the most mass-
e, and at the same time, delicate
rris, perhaps, in the world, and you
laginc that this is Lotus land in
mparison with what .you have
:en seeing some days previously in
at other British Columbia of gigan-
and snow-clad or mist-hidden
iountains. Then you take steamer
nd go to Victoria, the capital of the
land of Vancouver and the political
pital, though some hours from the
ainland of the great Province. And
ere you find yourself in a city of
izzling beauty—of indescribable
.arm. Perhaps the best impression
can give of Victoria is of a Pacific
enice—it   gives   a   suggestion   of
beautiful. placid water everywhere—
without the age and history as yet
that make Venice venerable, but, on
the other hand, with vaster piles of
beautiful buildings and with the
snowy whiteness that, comes from the
brilliant sunshine and the newness of
the place.
An Arresting Personality.
And as I neared the pier at which
the steamer was to stop, in one of
the winter months of last year, I saw
there for the first time for several
years the remarkable man who is the
ruler of this mighty country. At once
and as my first impression there came
the idea that there was something
singularly appropriate in the man and
the country he rules. Like the country itself, Mr. McBride is massive. I
should say he is over 6 feet high; he
has shoulders so broad that even a
professional athlete might envy them
—a chest of great breadth and depth,
and a physique altogether that is
striking and imposing—I might say
dominating. From any crowd of
men, however big, this figure would
stand forth in conspicuous and
haunting relief; you would find it
difficult to keep your eyes off him.
And the face and head are as striking
as the splendidly and broadly proportioned body. The face is massive
but short and round. It is typically
Irish in its features, but instead of
the typically rubicund complexion of
the men and women of the Emerald
Isle, it has the pallor—healthy but
pallid all the same—of those who live
in the severer climate of the New
World. The head is again massive
and, surmounted by a mane of thick,
snow-white hair, it makes even more
striking the personal appearance.
There is at first a curious resemblance to the head of Sir Wilfrid Laurier—tlie sarne cbmple_cion, the s&me
massiveness of head, the same mane
of white hair, but the resemblance is
not as great when you examine the
two men more clos.ely. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier has the long thin face of the
typical Frenchman—indeed the Dominion Premier always looks to me
as ;if he walked out of a portrait of
the noblesse of France in the days
before the Revolution. Mr. McBride
has the short face, massive head and
the thick hair of the Celt of the West.
Analyzing still further the face and
features of the figure of the great
British Columbian, you see curious
contradictions with the impression of
athletic massiveness. The mouth is
small, the deep-set eyes are soft
brown, the feet and hands are small
—there are delicacy, sensitiveness, a
certain artistic element in this big,
massive man as well as" strength.
And, above all, the dominating impression is of strength that is at the
same time the simplicity, the geniality, and the comradeship of that true
democratic sentiment you find in
these new countries, where men all
start from small beginnings before
they reach to wealth and power.
Great Religious Tolerance.
The ancestry of the man will supply you with the explanation of the
apparent contradictions in his physique, and the different factors that
make up the powerful and attractive
personality. Asked once by an importunate elector as to his special religious views—for they have some
faint echoes even in far British Columbia of the racial and religious
feuds of our Old World, and especially of that part of it which lies within
the frontiers of Ireland—Mr. McBride described with great humour
how his father was an Orangeman
from the north, and his mother a
Catholic from the south of Ireland,
and how as July 12th approached
every year the father bought and the
mother tore down from the wall the
picture of William of Orange, and
how, on the other hand, the father
treated in like fashion the chromotype of the Pope which the mother
thought the fittest ornament of the
home. The elector was silenced 'amid
the genial laughter of the crowd. And
Mr. McBride is the perfect amalgam
of these two contradictory types of
Irish life. He has abounding toleration for men of all creeds, recognizes
no political distinction because of
differences in religious faith, and with
equal grace and general acceptance
attends the bazaar for the Catholic
Church and the opening of the Baptist chapel. And in his character
there are blended the stern strength
of the Ulster Orangeman and the genial so.ftness of the Catholic mother
from Munster.
It is one of the secrets of Mr. McBride's unique hold over his people
that he belongs to them in every
nerve of his being. He was born in
British Columbia and though he went
to the law school at Halifax, in Nova
Scotia, to get his professional training, he has lived almost every hour
of his life in his own Province and
among his own people. And he is
never out of touch with them or with
their outlook on things. Any day
you can see him'in Victoria, moving
easily among the people, saluting every man he meets, for he knows them
all, or seated in the vestibule in the
beautiful Canadian Pacific Hotel over
a cup of tea, talking easily and familiarly to everyone who comes to join
the circle. He is the ruler with something of the Cadi in his methods and
Some nine or ten years ago Mr.
McBride was. leader of the Opposition, resisting a great Railway Bill.
At the end of a terrific fight extending over months, the ministry ,,as
defeated, and Mr. McBride was called
by the whole voice of the country to
take up its government. He started
with what was a surprising and in
many quarters an unwelcome transformation of the political life of tin-
country. Hitherto ministries had
been a collection of men of d'fferent
parties—a personal rather than a political combination. Mr. McB.ide resolved that this was an unhealthy
method of governing representative
institutions, and lie substituted parly
for personal government; 0', in other , wo- cts, gove-nriient by _>a.rty instead of government 1_y"1fa-ition. "
Empire's Youngest Premier.
He was just a little over 30 years
of age when he rea-.hed this j,reat position—the youngest Prims Minister
in the whole Briti-*'-. Empire. He has
held office for liiin- years since The
extent of his pjner is bos: realized
when it is sail that of thc .-2 members of the !egi.-*.;*l;.re 38 arc his supporters Of thf- :emaining f v.r two
are Liberals and two are Labour
men, and the Labour men are found
in his lobby at least as often as in
the opposite. In these years he h_
achieved wonders for his Province.
Looked at with suspicion when he
started, he appealed in vain to financiers and bankers for assistance in
financing the Province; now he is independent of them all. The Province
has made such progress that today
it stands in a% high a financial position as any country in the Empire.
Everywhere you see manifestations
of the indomitable energy of the man.
The illimitable resources of the vast
country are being developed with
feverish energy and under the guidance of a man who knows by personal travel almost every inch of the
vast territory. His last and most ambitious project is the foundation of a
British .Columbia University, which
he means to make as fo endowment
and as to professorships the equal of
any university in the world. Again
and again the Conservative party of
the Dominion have asked him to
leave his Province and take his place
on the greater stage of the Dominion
in the Parliament House at Ottawa.
But he has steadily resisted all such
appeals up to the present. His heart
and his work are still among his own
Trinity College Reform.
Far-reaching changes in the constitution and government of Trinity
College, Dublin, are imminent. The
most radical change will be the reform of the governing body. Hitherto the board has been composed of
the provost and seven senior fellows,
a close and omnipotent   corporation.

tion, how a strong and united Canada is
to be built up without cultivating to the
utmost degree inter-Provincial trade, and
how it is possible to,do this if along a
frontier of three thousand miles it is made
easy for our big neighbour to the South,
who has a home market of ninety millions,
to dump his surplus products into a country which has only six or seven millions.
Universal Free Trade
In the arguments of Mr. Templeman
and Dr. Clark there is no doubt something
idyllic. We should all like to see the day
when tariff walls throughout the world
are broken down and there will be universal Free Trade, but that day is not
yet; we are not face to face with ideal
conditions, but with stubborn facts, with
things as they are, and the biggest thing
for Canada from a commercial standpoint
is the absolutely inequality of competition
between herself and the United States, if
at this early stage in her career, when
she is only just beginning to get on her
feet, she abandons the policy which has
helped her to mount the first rung of the
ladder. The proposition is as chimerical
at the moment, although it may be realised in the future, as the proposal of disarmament. It is quite conceivable that if
all the Naval and Military Powers in the
world could by the waving of a magic
wand sweep armies and navies out of
existence on the instant, it might be possible to agree to such a policy. But who
is to begin ? Germany will not; England
cannot; the United States has not offered.
And so with commercial treaties. It is
true that England has waxed great and
rich under Free Trade, but what student
of economics does not know the wounds
she has received, the suffering that Free
Trade has entailed, and the injustice of
a fiscal policy which Cobden, Villiers and
Bright believed would have been adopted
universally long ago and which England
alone could have been strong enough to
mantain against the terrible odds with
which she has had to contend ?
Taft on the Cost of Living
And then, strange mockery of fate,
while the Hon. William Templeman and
Dr. Clark are urging the acceptance of
the Reciprocity Agreement on the ground
that it will so greatly reduce the cost of
living, President Taft, who should know
something about it, speaking at Indianapolis on July 4th, declared "the Reciprocity Agreement will not greatly reduce
the cost of living, if at all." Once again,
who are right, the Canadian or the American speakers ?
Local Industries
Mr. Templeman concluded his address
by urging.that all the local industries of
British Columbia would be benefited if
the Agreement becomes law. "It would
be good for lumbering, good for fishing,
good for fruit-growing." While this may
be an important aspect of the question
since none of us are indifferent to our
personal interests, The Week ventures to
think that the Canadian people will ultimately settle the question upon broader
lines than those of Provincial interest,
and any benefit which might accrue to
specific industries would be dearly purchased at the cost of weakening the National or Imperial sentiment. But Mr.
Templeman is begging the question when
he makes this statement. It is a large
order to ask the people to believe that a
difference of a cent a pound on halibut
will divert all the trade of the Pacific
Coast fisheries from the States to Prince
Rupert and the G. T. P. Yet that was
his positive declaration. As to lumbering, it has frequently been pointed out
that while the lumbermen of the Coast
may benefit, those of the Interior must
necessarily suffer. On the question of
fruit-growing there can hardly be a doubt,
and indeed all experts agree that the present importation of Oregon and Washington fruit into British Columbia will be
enormously increased by the new Agreement, and this must act as a handicap on
the fruit-growers of the Province and
seriously impede the development of one
of our most important and promising
Ignored Imperial Aspects
At this point Mr. Templeman switched
off to the Oriental question, and had not
a word to say upon what the Conservative
party regards as the most important
aspect of the question—its relation to
England and the Empire.
Dr. Clark's Omissions
Dr. Clark, following the Minister, gave
a resume of the fiscal policy of Canada
from the time of Confederation to support his main contention that there was
no prosperity and no progress until 1896,
when Sir Wilfrid Laurier came into
power. He ignored natural conditions as
the-**- existed during that period; he
ignored the fact that for nearly half that
period there was no railway connection
between the Atlantic and the Pacific; he
allowed nothing for the laying of foundations upon which to build a national
fabric, but what was of far more importance than all these from the standpoint
of a speaker who claimed to be "logical
and intelligent," he ignored the very pertinent fact that when Sir Wilfrid Laurier
came into power he continued the same
fiscal policy which had been established by
Sir John A. Macdonald, and which by
common consent is the only policy which
Canada can afford to espouse.
Altered Conditions.
Similarly, Dr. Clark ignored the fact
that circumstances alter cases, although
this could be the only logical justification for Sir Wilfrid adopting a policy
when he came into power which he had
always condemned when in opposition. In
twitting the Conservative party today
with the fact that their leaders had
twenty, thirty and forty years ago sought
Reciprocity with the States, Dr. Clark
allowed nothing for altered conditions.
He did not tell his audience that in those
days even the most far-seeing men failed
to realise Canada's destiny, or to anticipate the possibility of such industrial and
commercial development as has since
taken place. The forecasts of such financiers as Sir Richard Cartwright and Mr.
Fielding, to say nothing of Mr. Foster,
have shown year by year how far the
realization has out-stripped the expectation. Dr. Clark did not tell his audience
that less than twenty years ago the same
Sir Richard Cartwright, together with
some of the leading financiers of Canada,
men whose names have since become
household words, openly declared in Toronto that Canada's financial obligations
were so heavy and the outlook so black
that they could see no hope for the future
without annexation to the United States.
This kind of "tu quoque" argument as
used by Dr. Clark is not effective. Men
of all parties make mistakes, and it is no
argument in favour of Reciprocity today
that in the past leading Conservatives
have favoured it.
Present-Day Conditions
The matter has to be considered in the
light, of present day conditions. Canada
has emerged from her period of financial
depression; she is making gigantic strides
along the highway of commercial success;
her home and foreign trade is increasing
at a rate which is almost unbelievable.
Canada can afford to disregard minor
issues in the settlement of a great National and Imperial question; she can
afford to regard the Reciprocity Agreement in the broadest light; she can afford
to confine it to the simple questions, What
is best for Canada as a whole and for
Canada as a part of thG British Empire?
The Real Question
Such a question can meet with but one
answer, and that answer is not that we
shall sacrifice our birth-right for such a
"mess of pottage" as the stimulation of a
few local industries here and there, and
a little problematical gain, which even
President Taft denies, in the cost of living. The cost of living is a relative term
and the question of whether a loaf is dear
or cheap depends not on its intrinsic value,
but on the relation which its cost bears
to the purchasing power of the buyer.
Why are Canadian working-men better off
than their brothers at home. Not because
living is cheaper, but because wages are
higher. What advantage would it be to
reduce the cost of a ten-cent loaf to five
cents, if the earning capacity of the*
worker were so reduced by the checking
of industries and the transference of
activity elsewhere that he had not even
the five cents with which to buy?
National and Imperial
But the final issue on this great question
is its combined National and Imperial
aspect. The British Empire is moving as
never before.' That irresistible magnet,'
the Motherland, is drawing the scattered
fragments of the Empire nearer together,
nearer to each other and nearer to herself.
There is room within the Empire for all
the complexities of a great fiscal policy,
and no nation sacrifices its dignity or its
true spirit of independence by accepting
the yoke of Empire, and by making such
apparent sacrifices as the common weal
demands. President Taft said in a memorable speech that Canada was "at the parting of the ways." Whatever he may have
meant, and it is not merely a matter of
conjecture, every student of history and
every lover of the British Empire will admit the pertinence and the truth of tho
President's remark. Canada is at lthe
parting of the ways. Whether she accepts
or rejects the Reciprocity Agreement she
will remain a part of the British Empire,
but between acceptance and rejection
"there is a great gulf fixed," a gulf which
will be apt to grow wider year by year
and more difficult to span. The path of
safety, the path of prosperity, the path
of strength lies in the most intimate union
practicable in all matters of Imperial
interest, and while Canada cannot under
any circumstances and by the perpetration of any mistake, however serious,
frustrate her ultimate destiny, she will, if
she enters into an intimate reciprocal
treaty with her great neighbour, sensibly
delay the consummation of a united
Empire and the formation of an impregnable British solidarity throughout the
The Week has never before broken
silence about an occurrence which the Victoria Times describes as " a well-known
political incident of three years ago." It
would not do so now but for the base disregard of journalistic ethics and the gross
personal insult intended by a paragraph
appearing in the Times, issue of Thursday last, referring to the rumoured resignation of Bishop Perrin. His Lordship has
been Bishop of this Diocese for nearly
twenty years; he has filled the office with
dignity, and has greatly endeared himself
not only to his own parishioners, but also.
to all the citizens of Victoria who have
come in contact with him. During a recent inter-regnum in the rectorship he discharged the duties of parish priest with
such acceptance that he was made the
recipient-of a loving address. Any connection which Bishop Perrin may have
had with a political incident three years
ago reveals nothing of discredit, but shows
him discharging one of the most solemn
duties of his sacred office in the only
manner in which it could be discharged
by a Christian gentleman. If Bishop Perrin resigns, his going away will be a serious loss to Victoria. The Week hopes the

who has in her closet for just such

But, for comfortable service, the tan
linen, which is of the new kind of
weave, is convenient, and smart looking. The mesh is loose and rough and
open, as there is no varnish to close
up the spaces. The coat is unlined,
is short, is open down the front, and
has long or short sleeves. These
suits seem to fill the need for many
kinds of occasions, their only rival
being the gray and white striped crash,
which every woman cannot wear.
When she can it is tremendously effective. The reason the deep tan
linen comes first is that it suits almost every face and figure. Even if*
the colour is not becoming, it is quite
an easy matter to offset it under the
chin with black, purple, king's blue
or Pompeian red. These suits are
now made with a moderately narrow
skirt, fastened down the left front
with tan, pearl, or bone buttons. One

A Suggestion
Editor "Week;" I am quite sure
that anyone with r.n eye to the artistic
can see at once how very attractive
the slope, below the street in front
of the Parliament buildings, could be
made by the addition of flower beds.
The centre, say, could have the "coat
of arms" of British Columbia (set
out in plants giving the proper
shades), with the imperial crown, and
the Union Jack, one on either side.
This would not at all be a difficult
work for any one of the many clever
florists in our midst. "The spot so admirably adapted to such use, is one
of which any city might well feel
Let us take advantage of our natural beauties generally by emphazing
them in some such manner.
I trust the suggestion at least may
excite such interest as will lead to
the proper utilization of many points
of vantage in and around this naturally beautifully situated city.

The Islands' Service
Pender Island, B. C. July 1.
To the Editor of the "Week."
Dear Sir: In your issue of the
24th instant your remarks about the
Islands' transportation caused me
great astonishment. Instead of you
being hostile at the awful state of
affairs, you state the Islanders are
now perfectly satisfied, "as they have
got the launch Tuladi and the steamship "Don." I can tell you the Islanders are anything but satisfied with
these two apologies, and they will
buck the C. P. R. to a finish We
are now thankful to see the "City of
Nanaimo" coming around regularly,
and the service promises to be the
best ever known on the Islands.
Some little time ago you had some
hard words against the "City of Nanaimo." First, let me inform you
that I am in a position to state she
has just been on the ways and thoroughly examined by an expert, who
declares her perfectly sound and seaworthy. So nobody need have the
slightest fear of travelling upon her.
The feeling around the Islands at
present is that those who do good
actions shall be punished, and those
will cause deaths through damnable
carelessness shall be knighted.
Yours truly,
