One Dollar Pee Annum
Inspiracy OF SILENCE
I Thursday, April 27th, Mr. B. J.
ly made the first of his sensational
from Victoria to Duncans and
The daily press has* chronicled this
L omitting some of its most interest-
Jeatures. On Friday, April 28th, the
Intants of Koksilah held an indigna-
1 meeting at which resolutions were
Id protesting against high speed on
Jiublic highways, and citing a number
listances during the last' year or so
Ihich persons and property had been
Ted. A copy of these resolutions was
larded to the office of the Attorney-
Iral, and in addition Mr. Olive
lips Wolley, who attended' the meet-
was requested to communicate the
|_edings to the daily press.   He did so
letter addressed and handed to the
|nist on the following day, Saturday,
29th.    The letter recited the inci-
which led up to the calling of the
ling in question and the resolutions
[id and requested the Colonist in pub-
rig it to emphasize the public danger
led by such high speed driving. Al-
fch the letter was signed by Mr.
ley, a gentleman of the highest repu-i
|n in the community, and one who has
here for*more than twenty years,
las .refused insertion, or to be more
let, it Avas not inserted and was sim-
Ignored. Following its usual course,
■Jver, the Colonist plagiarised the pith
Wolley _ letter and dished it up
put acknowledgment as an original
rial.   Mr. Wolley's letter contained a
jy warning that if drastic measures
not adopted there would be some
lus if not fatal accident. On Sun-
(May 1st, Mr. Perry repeated his sen-
Inal flight, and once again he beat the
X. train between Duncans and Vic-
, On the return journey, although
Idmittedly employs the best chauffeur
i ictoria, he was unable to prevent a
■nion which smashed Dr. Dyke's auto
J flung him and a lady occupant of
|_ar down an 18-foot bank. This cir-
Itance has been suppressed by the
Inist; indeed, no attempt has been
I) to: use the influence which the press
Id possess to discourage such dangfir-
Iriving, and to invoke the aid of the
|>rities to suppress it.   The Times has
equally silent. The Automobile
I whatever it may have done behind
Id doors, has done nothing so far as
Lublic is aware, for the detailed ac-
It of the meeting of the Club pub-
Id in the daily press contains no re-
(ice whatever to the foregoing inci-
If this is not "a conspiracy of
Ice" The Week would like to know
I phrase correctly describes the situ-
ii. There is no desire to impose any
rations on Mr. Perry's speeding pro-
lities so long as the result does not
It others, but The Week must confess
rot a little amazement that the press,
|\.utomobile Club, and the public auth-
as should have' nothing to say on the
Jet. Indeed, the amazement is so
It that it is just possible The Week is
rely mistaken in supposing that any-
ou-t of the ordinary has occurred,
J'if so it tenders a humble apology to
■press, to the police an'd to Mr. Perry
Iiaving given publicity to details wjiich
Ine else seems to have considered mat-
fof public interest. ^»
E CARPENTERS' STRIKE
[nfortunately   the   carpenters'   strike
I continues although the Mayor made^a
fair effort to settle it. On Saturday
fa deputation from the Builders' Asso-
pon and a deputation from the Carpen-
Union met in the Mayor's Parlour
I after lengthy discussion a settlement
was agreed upon subject to ratification by
the two Associations. The terms of the
settlement were that the men should receive an advance of 25 cents a day immediately, raising the rate of pay to $4.25.
At the end of six months there was to be a
further increase of 25 cents, with a stipulation that there should be no other change
for the succeeding six months, nor at any
time without three months notice on either
side. It seems to The Week that this settlement would have been eminently fair;
it recognized the justice of the men's demands for a $4.50 rate, the same as their
fellow-workmen in Vancouver where the
cost of living is, if anything, lower than
in Victoria. On the other hand it deferred
the concession of the full advance for six
months to enable the builders to work off
their current contracts, and it ensured
peace for at least a year. Just when everyone thought that an unfortunate dispute had been amicably settled the Builders' Association went back on their delegation and repudiated the proposed agreement. Consequently another week has
been lost, during which'time only a handful of men have been at work and more
than five hundred have been thrown idle.
At the moment of going to press the Builders' Association has agreed for the first
time to meet the carpenters ancl a delegation has been appointed. They will be accompanied by Mr. B. D. Grant of New
Westminster, the official organizer of the
United Brothers of Carpenters and Joiners. The delegation has been instructed
by a mass meeting to adhere to the terms
of the settlement as arranged in the Mayor's Parlour, and as The Week believes
nothing more equitable could be devised
it is to be hoped that wise councils will prevail, and that the few builders who have
hitherto resisted a fair settlement will be
won over by their colleagues to accept the
offer which the delegation is authorized to
make.
THE WOMEN'S COUNCIL
The Women's Council has held its annual session in Victoria and incidentally has received and discussed many valuable reports. It is amazing to see the
ground covered by the various departments of this admirable society, and it is
impossible to contemplate its numerous activities without realising that it is a power
for good and must exert a vital influence
in the country. When one reads of the
work of the Literary Society, of the various Ladies' Aids representing every
church in the city, of the acquisition of
property by the Y. W. C. A. to the extent
of $12,000, of the promotion of social intercourse amongst strangers coming to the
city,.of the philanthropic programme of
the Mothers' Clubs, and then of the interest taken by the Women's Council in public questions, and especially in the responsibility of women, it is impossible to deny
that however one may differ on subjects
like political equality and the franchise
the general tenour of the multifarious activities of the Women's Council is in the
highest degree elevating and optimistic.
With the more practical aspects of the
programme there can be nothing but sympathy. The improvement of conditions in
rural communities, the energetic efforts
being made to secure properly equipped
and supervised play-grounds, and the desire to protect juvenile criminals from the
contaminating influence of their elders are
all philanthropic projects of the highest
merit. The address of the accomplished
President, Mrs. Spofford, is well worth
studying, illustrating as it does the high
aims of the many allied organizations, and
the self-denying labours of the faithful
band of officials who have constituted the
programme of the Women's Council their
life work. Iii this address more than sufficient is stated to show that in public, ser
vice there is much that women can do, and
much that she can do far better than man.
The Women's Council seems to be active in
every Canadian city, but in none is it better served by women of lofty ideals and
consecrated lives than in the city of Victoria. .
THE POSTAL SERVICE
There is absolute unanimity as to the
increasing inefficiency of the Victoria
Postal Service, and it is only fair to say
that this is not in any degree the fault
of the local officials. The blame rests at
the door of the authorities at Ottawa who
have so far disregarded all recommendations from the public, the press, the Board
of Trade and even their own officials to
make an adequate increase in the staff.
It is impossible to handle the enormous
amount of mail matter with the number
of men at present employed, and it is
apparently impossible to sensibly increase
their number unless the rate of pay is
advanced. Meanwhile, the service is
daily proving itself more inadequate, and
the community is sustaining serious loss.
It is no uncommon thing for drop letters
to be two days in reaching their destination. Short date notices of meetings are
often received after the meetings have
been held. Important communications
from Vancouver containing cheques or orders are not infrequently delayed a day,
while second-class mail matter is invariably one or two days late. To cite an
illustration: The writer of this paragraph
mailed three periodicals on Saturday last
at 7 p.m. to friends in the city. They
were mailed at the General Post-Office
and were properly stamped and addressed.
The first was delivered on Tuesday morning; the second on Wednesday morning
and the third on Wednesday afternoon. It
is said that the Hon. William Templeman is paving the way for a nomination
for Victoria at the next general election.
The Week hopes he will get the nomination for more reasons than one, but if he
would like to do one thing to entitle him
to the gratitude of the public he should
use whatever influence he has as a Cabinet
Minister to induce his colleague, the Postmaster-General, to remedy the present deplorable state of affairs in connection with
the local postal service.
VICE-PRESIDENT WHYTE
Of all the messes into which the Colonist ever got that in which it involved itself
this week in connection with the utterances of Vice-President Whyte of the C.
P. R. is easily the least creditable to its
journalistic acumen. Reduced to its simplest element the story is that the correspondent of the Vancouver World, recognized as the most sensational and unreliable of the yellow journals of the West,
garbled a public utterance of Mr. AVhyte's
to make it appear that he was discriminating in the strongest manner against Victoria and in favour of Vancouver. The
veriest tyro in newspaper work would have
known that the despatch was garbled, and
would have understood that it was simply
a sop to please Vancouverites, and well in
line with the usual policy of the Vancouver papers. Not so the Colonist. It swallowed the bait, the hook and the line and almost the rod, and proceeded to make itself look extremely ridiculous by canvassing and attempting to answer the supposed statements of Mr. Whyte. Not so
Mr. Simon Leiser, who being a level-headed business man knew instinctively that,
Mr. Whyte could never have been such a
fool as the Colonist supposed. Mr. Leiser
sent him a long wire and got a long reply,
which it must have been gall and wormwood for the Colonist to have to print. But
there it is and the whole thing is an amusing canard.   All The Week has to say is
that the editor of the Colonist is the only
man in the West who believed Mr. Whyte
capable of such a "faux pas," and one reflects more v in sorrow than in anger
that the leading Victoria journal should
be such an "easy mark" for an apprentice
reporter. However, "it is an ill wind that
blows no one good" and if the incident
does nothing more than emphasize the fact
that Vancouver wholesalers are active on
the Island it will have worked some good.
THE COUNTRY CLUB
The Victoria Country Club is living up
to all its promises in connection with the
summer meeting. First of all it has collected three hundred good race-horses.
Fifty arrived yesterday and included at
least three of the fastest equines on the
Pacific Coast. A small army of men is
working on the track and grounds. The
Paris Mutuelle machines have arrived,
and with them an expert instructor tp
induct the officials into the mysteries of
the new system of speculating with stray
dollars. The directors of the Club are
going about wreathed in smiles, especially
since the Oak Bay Council took a generous view of things and yielded gracefully to the request for a seventh day's
racing. When the bell rings for the first
race a week from to-day everything will
be in perfect readiness, the lovers of the
fine old sport will witness the best racing
ever seen in Victoria, and unless The
AVeek is entirely mistaken they will also
witness the best management. The police
are determined to exclude all hoboes and
sharpers, and the advance guard of these
has already been turned back with very
little fuss, and a good deal of determination. If things go as well as they promise there will not be room for the most
exacting critic to cavil, and the Country
Club will deserve the thanks of the community for so re-arranging matters that
the lovers of race-horse's and racing may
still continue to enjoy their favourite
pastime.
FINE MEN AND WOMEN
"Public Opinion," one of the most popular of the weekly reviews published in
London, states that the single aim of all
reform is to make fine men and women.
It opines that the next generation will
have healthier homes, better nourished
bodies and greater facilities for recreation,
but asks thc very pertinent question,
"Will they be able to seize their chances,
or will they remain indifferent to all beyond the little round of daily toil and trivial amusements." This reflection is suggested by an appeal signed by the Headmaster of Repton, the Bishop of Birmingham, Professor Sadler, the Dean of Durham and others, setting out the objects of
the Workers' Educational Association,
which aims at culture. The work of the
Association consists in cultivating a love
for reading and the.ftjguisition of knowledge. This hunger for knowledge is the
best and purest of all human passions and
its existence is the hope of the future. In
its political aspect this craving for knowledge is of supreme importance, for the
danger of a democracy which can read but
not understand is appalling. Our elementary schools are turning put a generation
that can and does read every sort of rash
and foolish appeal, but has. not the power
of distinguishing between sanity and folly, between appeals to cupidity or passion
and appeals to reason. There is room for
such an Educational Asociation in Canada. Our educational methods are starving the best side of human nature, and
there is no hope for betterment in the
schools. It lies in individual effort to attain self-culture, and that effort requires
assistance. THE WEEK,  SATURDAY,  MAY  13,. 1911
Never have I received such a surprise as I did last Monday when I
came down town to discover that
Victoria, staid old Victoria, had been
impregnated with the baseball spirit,
had cultivated it and was actually
able to display the fruits thereof in a
demonstration on the streets. "Fans"
there were in abundance; the gay
streamers were as much in evidence
as when an invasion of the Mystic
Shriners takes p'lace—and there was a
parade. To my astonishment I learnt
that the quest of the dollar was in
many cases reliquished so that employers and employees might behold
His Worship open the season with a
hard shot at Mr. Kingham, and whilst
I sat in the office and pondered over
the miracle the sound of the distant
"rooting" was borne to my ears and
convinced me that it was all true. I
confess that I know nothing of the
game and am therefore not in a position to appreciate it, but I have the
greatest respect for any form of athletics which can hold a great nation
in thralldom; and I realise the immense advantages from the point of
view of advertising which Victoria
will gain by her entrance into the
North-Western League. So I join in
congratulations to Manager Wattelet
and the members of the Victoria
Baseball Club.
* *   *
Doubtless the visiting clubs will be
much impressed with the activity to
be seen in every direction, with the
natural beauties of the city and with
the prospective improvements to
which their attention will be called.
I hope, however, that the committee
which has charge of all arrangements
for their entertainment will.see to it
that they are never allowed to progress further along Government
Street than the corner of Fisguard.
It would be a terrible shock to any
citizen of a modern city if he were
suddenly and without preparation
plunged into the quagmires and morasses which greet the unwary between the street named and Bay
Street. The lumber mills, signs of
prosperity no doubt, belch forth
•clouds of sawdust; the side-walk, if
such it can be called, is treacherous,
irregular and frequently obstructed,
and the road is either a slough of
mud or a Sahara of dust. And this
is the continuation of our principal
street. I have never been able to
understand why money and labour
I. have been applied to outlying districts, where roads and sidewalks are
constructed before the houses make
their appearance, when main thoroughfares like Government and Superior are left naked and unashamed
right in.the busiest part of the city.
Two things I have to be thankful
for; I don't live in either part of the
world at present, and I don't possess
a bicycle. I am more often than not
in entire sympathy with the offenders
who break the law and use the sidewalks as a cycle track.
* *   *
And whilst we arc on the subject of
roads it might not be out of place to
point out that it is becoming increasingly difficult to drive into town from
that part of Victoria lying East of
Cook Street. When a'ctivity in road
repairing strikes the Council it strikes
it "in bunches." Vancouver Street is
impassable from Pandora to Humboldt; Fort Street is undergoing extensive alterations; View Street is
practically closed to traffic and Yates
Street is little better. Such energy is
commendable but too' concentrated.
If the area over which it were spread
could be enlarged a little so that at
'least one main avenue was always
available for traffic a great deal of inconvenience would be avoided and
the city as a whole would benefit. I
havc always been one to exhort the
Council to look after the principal
thoroughfares, but I have never suggested that they should all be tackled
at one and the same time.
It may seem odd that a Lounger
should be interested in anything
which savours of perpetual motion,
but that is the fact nevertheless. One
evening last week I was attracted, as
I always am, by a crowd on the corner of Yates and Broad who' were
busily engaged in gazing into a window. Naturally I hurried up and saw
an excellent little advertising scheme
in the window of Moore & Johnston's
real estate office. At first sight one
imagines that the secret of perpetual
motion has been solved and then the
fallacy becomes apparent. Other ingenious catchy signs appealed to my
imagination and on passing the following morning I dropped in just to
pass the time of day. I confess to
have come away with a great respect
for Messrs. Moore & Johnston who
have converted a somewhat unprepossessing shoe store into one of the
neatest little real estate offices I have
seen. For* a young firm of only some
four months' standing they are go-
ahead in the extreme and a glance at
their books goes far to prove their assertion that the present slight suspicion of dulness in the real estate
market has not been felt by them. It
is always cheering in Victoria to have
a chat with a cheery optimist and
each of these two partners can certainly be described as belonging to
that class.
*   *   *
Most people living in Victoria will
remember that not so very long ago
the local theatre was visited by a
company playing "The Queen of the
Moulin Rouge." There was a rumour
abroad that this play promised to be
somewhat spicy and for this reason
there was a heavy booking at the
box-office and the theatre was crowded. The result of the performance
was—shall I say gratifying, or shall I
be truthful and say disappointing?
There is no doubt that the majority
of the audience left with their desire
for something salacious unappeased,
and with a distinct "grouch" in consequence. Now an amusing story
comes from I^elson i" connection
with the same play. It would appear
that the same opinion had been
voiced on the street of the Kootenaian Capital as to the probable trend
of this play. A wave of moral reform
swept over the community and the
goody people headed by His Honour,
Judge Forin, prepared a memorial
addressed to the Mayor begging that
the performance be prohibited. This
memorial was extensively signed. It
takes an awful lot of courage not to
be brave in the cause of righteousness
when a refusal to sign is liable to be
construed as the sign manual of a
"lewd fellow of the baser sort." But
when the signatures were all affixed it
was pointed out to His Honour and
others that there was a slight mistake
in the wording of the memorial, in
that it stated that other cities, notably
Los Angeles, had led the way by prohibiting the play. It was argued by
the theatre manager that this was
not true and that the other cities had
only taken precautions to stop the
play if it should appear offensive on
the night of its performance. It was
an unfortunate mistake, but the
prudes were not to be deterred by a
little thing of that nature. They
merely erased the clause containing
the. incorrect statement, omitting the
formality of acquainting the signatories of this alteration, and proceeded on their way to His Worship,
Mayor Selous.
Now Mayor Selous is a man of
parts. Unlike many mayors he is
possessed of a spirit of fair-play; he
is gifted with common-sense, and he
is by no means devoid of the saving
grace of humour. He read the memorial and commented on the erasure.
When the discovered that the signatories had not been again consulted
after the elimination process he very
properly refused to act on the suggestion   of  the  prudes,  and  pointed

out in no ambiguous terms that to all
intents and purposes the signatures
had been obtained on false pretences
and were in point of fact nothing better than a set of forgeries. Therein
he showed the first of the good qualities mentioned above, and his answer
left the petitioners in somewhat of a
quandry. Here his common-sense
came to the rescue, and he promised
that he would attend the performance
in person and would take the necessary steps to "put the kibosh" on the
play if in his opinion there was any
justification for such an extreme
measure.

Mr. Golding would be a tip-top Ko-
ko if he could shake off a few of th
characteristic Pollard mannerisms and
grimaces, and if he could further be
persuaded to cut out the improvised
gag and seventy-five per cent, of the
clown. Mr. Golding is so clever that
he can well afford to play Koko as
Koko and to reserve his broad comedy for Christmas pantomime. 1
know it takes a little courage to do
this because few actors who possess
the power to raise a continuous
laugh have sufficient moral courage
to resist the temptation. Mr. Golding is a natural mirth-maker, quite
good enough to star in any comic
opera. There were some inimitable
touches in his work last Saturday
night and thc only possible criticism
No explanation for its omission has
been furnished.
Alick Lauder
There is but one Lauder, at least
in the theatrical world, and his name
is not "Alick." It was a mistake, as
it always is, to advertise an entertainer .on the merits of another person. Just why Alick Lauder should
be any the better on the stage because
he is the brother of Harry Lauder
deponent knows not. As a matter of
fact he is good enough to travel on
his own face, but not in a high priced
show. He is a good deal of a musician and more than a little of an artist. His versatility was shown in the
playing of three or four instruments;
he has a good voice for a comic song,
but not a good singing voice. His
dancing is so-so, and his patter not
funny. I gathered that the Scotch
humour which he may have inherited
has been civilized out of his make-up,
and even his voice furnished but faint
traces of his native dialect. He does
not deserve a "roast," neither has he
any special claim to praise. He would
make a top-liner at an average vaudeville house, and I believe this was the
verdict of the two hundred Scotch enthusiasts who paid for admission on
Monday night and who dwindled
away to half the number before the
programme was reached.

Whilst these two artists stood out

Pitti-Sing, and was thrice encored in
the opening solo of the second act.
Miss Ruth Cordingly was thoroughly satisfactory as Yutn-Yum and
Mr. George Taschcrau made an excellent Pooh-Bah. Mr. Carl Kenning

The New Grand Theatre
We have seen many startling trapeze acts in the New Grand of late,
,but I doubt whether anything more
sensational than the work done by
Lohse & Stirling has been staged
during thc past year or more. These
two dare-devil athletes present a turn
which is remarkable for its novelty
and daring. Miss Sadie Sherman is
a clever impersonator and mimic and
her appearance as an Italian woman
is distinctly good. "Tactics" is the
title of a somewhat original sketch
presented by the Barrows-Lancaster
Company, in which Joseph O. Barrows wins high honours for his interpretation of the character of the
fiery old Northern general. By far
the best part of Jack Goldie's turn
is that in which he imitates the whistling of various birds. Seldom, if
ever, have I heard a stronger or more
piercing whistler. Inglis & Reading
furnish the light stuff this week and
some of their quips are very amusing.

It is almost like dropping into a

A Pound of
Flesh
BY BOHEMIAN
Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth Is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That does not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot;
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remember'd not.
—As You Like It.
It is astonishing how one instinctively turns to Shakespeare for sound
philosophy, or an insight into thc
working of that marvellous machine
known as the human heart. He still
seems to be the one inspired poet who
wrote for all time. It was he who
drew the sketch of the immortal
Bumble as of, the man "dressed in
little brief authority" who struts on
the stage of life.
But it was not Shakespeare who
wrote so entertainingly on the degradation of "tipping" and the humiliation of receiving a "pour-boire." It
was an English lady-writer of the
Twentieth century wjtose racy works
have interested and amused the people of two continents.
Her theory is that it is unmanly
to offer or receive a "tip"; that a
man having earned his wages, and
having been paid, has no further
claim upon hi; employer, and that
anything in the shape of a "douceur"
should be regarded as an insult.
We all know that this lady's books
are widely read; in fact there are
few novel readers of th;e day who
are not familiar with them, and where
her Twentieth century philosophy furnishes an easy way out of the diffi-
''■ culty even the superior sex has been
I known to follow its suggestions with
avidity.
The astonishing feature of the case
is that the "superior" sex has not
found out that the lady is poking
fun at them, and under the guise of
sober "dictum" is really exploiting
their foibles for the amusement of
their fellows. The'sad part of it is
that some men,"dressed in little brief
. authority" take her seriously, and
imagine' that they are working out
a plan of salvation for the body
politic when they are translating her
ironic maxims literally.
There is a wide difference of opinion on the subject of insults. It
ranges from that of Pooh-Bah, who
expected to be insulted all the time,
and who appreciated the insult according to its size and weight, down
to the pettiest little huckster who is
happy to graft for a dollar.
Similarly, there is thc same wide
range of opinion on the subject of
the emolument or honorarium, ranging from that of Shylock, of immortal
fame, bent on getting his pound of
flesh to thc last atom, to men of the
type of the Cheeryble Brothers to
whom the paying of wages was but
a small part of the obligation incurred to faithful and honest service,
but who felt that in addition there
,was   due   a   world   of   kindness, of
thoughtfulness, and of consideration
to be expressed in terms appreciative
and material.
This would be a weary world if the
vast majority of mankind did not believe implicitly in this truer philosophy of life. It is an old but a true
saying that the most generous people
are the poor, and assuredly the most
generously disposed are the masses.
It is as a rule their Jack-in-office who
preens himself, and puts on airs, and
imagines that he is interpreting the
wishes of the public when he is outraging the most generous impulses of
the race.
Niggardliness is by universal consent despicable, and the cheese-paring
economy which battens on flesh and
blood is of all policies the most despicable. At least this was the view
expressed by the Bard of Avon whose
contempt for "sweating" in any form
was supreme. ;
The execration which every age has
heaped upon the memory of Shylock
finds just as ready a response in the
present day when men, having driven
a hard bargain, exact their "pound of
flesh." And the sentiment is the same
whether in public or private life. In
an age of unprecedented prosperity
and progress it is all the more incongruous that there should be any lack
of consideration for men who render
honest service to the commonwealth.
In an age of universal pilfering and
grafting, where so many public officials feather their own nests, and are
considered fools if they do not, the
faithful, laborious, honest and ill-remunerated toil of a public servant
cannot be recompensed in the terms
of a miserly pittance.
Nor do the people wish it so. When
for* a quarter of a century a man has
stood at "the receipt of custom," and
safely guarded the public exchequer,
it is not a human man of flesh and
blood, but a Shylock who would toss
him an "obolus" and bid him begone.
But when the shadows are falling,
and eventide has already come, with
the snows of many winters on the
head, and the finger of time on the
brow, to turn such an one adrift without even the little sanctuary called
"home" to shelter him during the
last stages of life's journey, conjures
up a picture which will cause the
cheek to mantle with shame, and from
which the heart will turn with sadness.

assuming the mien of an outraged
Chief Magistrate he presented the appearance of a disinterested and singularly uninterested spectator. But at
the close of the Act his keen sense
of humour came to his aid, and instead of despatching a peremptory
order to ..the house manager to shut
dqwn on'the play he transmitted a
polite-intimation to the stage manager to thc effect that "if he didn't
warm the piece up a bit" he would
be compelled to close the house for
exactly thc opposite reason to that
for which such a step had been
deemed necessary by Judge Forin
and his associates.
Talk about making a mountain out
of a mole-hill! Could any better instance be given of the fatuous folly
of those cranks who delight in mak
ing a show of their own virtue by
seeking every occasion on which to
parade it? A little more trouble taken in llic first instance to investigate
the truth of the rumours, which certainly did fly around with regard to
thc play, vrould have enabled the Nelson prudes to avoid placing themselves in a ridiculous position. Needless to say they have become the
laughing-stock of the community
which they grace and their power for
doing good in the future is vastly
curtailed. It is always a dangerous
policy to advertise the immorality of
a play or a book in the hope of safeguarding public or private morals. I
was with a man the other day as we
were passing a stationer's store, and
in the window he saw a cheap edition of a novel. "Wait a minute." he
said; "I want to get that book; I re-
membcr^ny father telling me when I
was a boy not to read it." That is
human nature all over. I think it was
St. Paul who said that if the law had
not forbidden him to sin he would
not have sinned, or words very much
to that effect.

A Reunion
inter-city committee, the origin
liich is shrouded in some mystery,
|a meeting in Port Arthur lately.
Fort William were Mayor
\g and Aid. Huston, Port Arthur
represented by Mayor Ray and
Ron. The committee recom-
(led a joint gas plant establish-
and a connection of water sys
tems at the boundary so that either
city could supply the other in case of
need. The city councils were asked
to ascertain the cost of this.
The employment of a capable man
to take up freight rates was endorsed,
to be paid jointly by both cities.
"Buffalo Bell"
For the purpose of rounding up the
herd of 400 wild buffalo that wander
about the plains of the lower Peace
river valley, the only herd of wild
buffalo on the American continent today, A. J. Bell is leaving Edmonton
early in May for Fort Smith, where
he will establish an Indian agency
and experimental farm. He will take
two buffalo herders with him.
A Far-sighted Policy
The town of Armstrong is to be
complimented on the vigorous campaign of street improvement now
under way. The work is being rushed
along very rapidly and it looks as
though a first-calss job were being
•done. Nothing so speaks in favor
of a town or city as good streets and
sidewalks. They are to the city what
carpets, window curtains and tablecloths are to a home.
A Railway Accomodation
It is probable that the C. N. R. and
G. N. R. will run their trains over the
same line from Hope to a point near
the Sumas River, owing to the cost of
the purchase of the right-of-way
through the Chilliwack valley. The
C. N. R. now has 350 men at work
between Hope and Popcum, and excellent progress is being made on the
grade of the new line.
Tenders Invited
The Department of Trade and
Commerce has called for tenders for
a mail service between Canada and
Jamaica, the steamers to put in on
each trip at Bermuda and Turks Is
lands. The tenders may be for either
fourteen, ten or seven days. The vessels must be of British register, and
preference wil) be given to ships
which possess cold storage facilities.
British Journalists
Two well known British agricultural journalists have left on an extended tour of Canada for the purpose of reporting on farming affairs
generally, but more particularly on
the conditions and development in the
western provinces and British Columbia. The visitors will be James Cameron, agricultural editor of the Glasgow Herald, and Eldred F. G. Walter, regular contributor to The Western Mail, Bristol and other publications.
. Game Licence Fees
The customary annual notices with
respect to hunting and fishing licences
for non-residents of the province have
lately been issued from the provincial
game department, and are now being
distributed. The fees are: For a general licence good for one year, to cover all game and fish that may be taken
under existing laws and regulations,
$100; spring bear hunting licence,
good from January 1 to July 14, $25;
birds, season, $50; angler's licence,
good for one year, $5. Licences may
be taken out at the office of the provincial game warden or that of any
government agent.
For Skagway Run
Announcement of the new spring
and summer schedule of the Canadian
Pacific Railway coast service steamers has been made. According to the
new arrangement there will be six
steamers a month for Skagway, the
Princess May and Princess Royal running on the northern route. The first
sailing on this new schedule from Victoria will be June 5, and Alert Bay,
Swanson Bay, Prince Rupert, Port
Simpson, Ketchikan and Juneau will
be included in the ports of call. Skagway boats will leave Victoria on Mondays and Thursdays of each week.
The  steamer  Beatrice,  now  on  the
Vancouver run, will be used this summer on the Queen Charlotte Island
route, and will make two trips a
month from the south. The new
schedule became effective May 1, and
will continue so until September 1.
The Timber Outlook
That the coming season will be one
of the busiest in the history of the
lumber industry of the Pacific coast,
and will also see one of the largest
outputs ever made in one season in
British Columbia, was the statement
made recently by Mr. G. McKay, provincial timber inspector. From advices received at the offices of the
timber department, preparations are
being made by most of the lumber
concerns operating on the west coast
of Vancouver Island, and on the
north coast of the mainland for a
very heavy season's work, many of
them increasing the capacity of their
plants to the extent of doubling their
output.
Thousands of Fruit Trees
A deal has been put through by
Mr. W. S. Mitchell, of Notchill, who
represents Eastern capital, for the 15
Mile House ranch near Lillooet, the
property of Mr. and Mrs. Moses Fosters. The price paid was in the neighbourhood of $25,000. T|he purchase
includes all the cattle, horses, etc., as
well as some seven to eight hundred
acres of splendid arable land. It is
Mr. Mitchell's intention to run the
ranch along mixed farming lines for
the present, including the planting out
of several thousand fruit trees and
with the advent of a railway through
Lillooet the future value of this excellent land will be at once apparent.

BOOK NOTES
There is a fine variety of interest
in the May Canadian Magazine.
"Fort George: Its Awakening," by
Russell R. Walker, is a delightful description of the beginning of one of
the new towns along the Grnd Trunk
Pacific Railway. "Canadian Independence," by John S. Ewart, K.C,
is the kind of article that causes discussion. It makes a frank plea for
the acknowledgment of Canadian independence in view of the fact, as he
sets it forth, that we are independent.
''Fleets of Peace," by A. Bowman, is
a good and timely appreciation of the
sumptuousness of the passenger vessels in the Canadian inland waters.
"Loyalist Shelburne," by Daniel Owen
is an interesting historical sketch of
an old Nova Scotia town. "Town
Christeners in the West" is a breezy
article by Arthur Hawkes on how
new towns in the West get their
names. There are other articles of
interest, besides a number of first-
class short stories.
TO ENFORCE THE LAW
The case of Rex. vs. William Grant
of Rossland, perjury, which is set for
hearing at the spring hearing of the
court of assize in Nelson provides
further illustration of the determination of the Provincial authorities to
strictly enforce the provisions of the
Liquor Act, this perjury case being
the sequel to a prosecution under that
drastic statute, in which Grant was
the defendant. He is now at liberty
under $3,000 bail. It is alleged that
when brought up in the police court
to answer a charge of selling liquor
to an interdicted man, the case was
dismissed by Magistrate Plewman of
Rossland on the plea of the defendant that he did not know the man to
whom the liquor was sold. Later the
police discovered that Grant had
cashed cheques for the interdicted
man and he was arrested on a charge
of perjury.
TO  YOV
Why do I dTeam of you tonight?
Is it the dim scent of a lone rose,
Or wistful gleam of hused and watchful
stars?
Perhaps some vagrant melody, which
flows
From   wizard   strings,   which   memory
Still scars
A heart too deeply seared with voiceless pain.
Once more I see the light in your dear
eyes
And faintly feel your trembling lips
again.
Oh,   tender  piteous   dream   that   never
dies!
My fighting    soul    with recollection
stirs,
As haunting breaths of breeze through
cypress sigh,
Sobbing   like   wounded   love,   which,
tearful, blurs
That  other  deathless  night,   that  last
good-bye.
When Love is done, you said, we must
forget,
Remembrance   is   but   madness, sweet,
and yet	
Why do I dream of you tonight?

May  Canadian  Magazine.

BRITISH COLUMBIA'S PROSPECTS
vn interviewer recently asked Mr. E. J. Chamberlin, the General
Inager of the Grand .Trunk Pacific Railway, whether any pro-
Imme of development was contemplated with regard to Vancou-
1 Island by his Company. "No," he replied, "we have no develop-
Int plans for Vancouver Island. Why should we go to that island
lose great wealth of resource is now approximately understood,
lich would mean paying a substantial price for any of its re-
Irces we might seek to acquire, when we have such a virgin field
(the Queen Charlotte Island so much nearer our terminus, and
try bit as rich in variety of natural resources as even Vancouver
ind While the Canadian Pacific and Canadian Northern are de-
loping Vancouver Island we shall devote ourselves in all proba-
jty to the Queen Charlotte."
In a recent article in The Financial World we dealt with the
teptional openings which British Columbia offers to the British
litalist, and with the particular attractions of the group of islands
Jive referred to by Mr. Chamberlin. The completion of the Grand
link Pacific line from Moncton, New Brunswick, to Prince Ruff brings the Queen Charlotte Island into direct touch with Can-
,'s markets, and removes the one obstacle which has hitherto hin-
led the development of a richly mineralised and densely timbered

THE  WEEK,  SATURDAY,  MAY  13,   1911
region. A Financial World representative has recently had the
pleasure of a lengthy and interesting interview with Mr. J. G. Johnston, of the Western Steel Corporation of Vancouver City. Although well-known as one of the oldest pioneers and explorers in
British Columbia Mr. Johnston is still a young man. Active and
wiry, with keenly observant eyes, he is an excellent type of colonist,
and knows the Province intimately from one end to the other. He
confirmed in every particular what has already been said, on the
subject in The Financial World, and was able to supplement it by
many details from his close personal knowledge of the country. On
the subject of timber he is an enthusiast, and he pointed out that
British Columbia undoubtedly possesses a greater quantity of timber than any other part of North America. The Minster of Finance,
in his recent Budget statement, announced that the total amount of
lumber cut in 1910 amounted to 1,040,000,000 feet, valued at $17,-
160,000, or £3,520,000, an increase of $5,160,000 as compared with
1909. It is believed that the rapidly growing demand for timber
will increase the value of this commodity by 50 per cent, in the near
future, and Mr. Johnston emphasized the exceptional opportunities
thus offered to investors in moderately capitalized and carefully
managed lumber and sawmill companies. Mr. Johnston, among his
other activities, played a prominent part in the location of the extensive coal deposits now being developed on Graham Island, which
are likely to be of the greatest importance to the commerce of the
North.
The remarkable speed with which the industries of this prosperous province are being successfully matured is due in no small
degree to the Premier, the Hon. Richard McBride. His clear,
statesmanlike grasp of the political situation, his remarkable business-like foresight, and his vigorous yet charming personality, make
a brilliant combination which is proving of incalculable benefit to
British Columbia. He is proud of his Province, and great and
varied though his responsibilities are, he is always ready to grant
an interview to anyone having suggestions to make in the interests
of the country. He is a quick and unerring judge of character, and
wtih his knowledge of men and affairs dominating the politics and
finance of the Province, British Columbia should rapidly come to
the front.—Financial World.
HEAVY ADDITION TO DOMINION ESTIMATES
Further supplementary estimates for the current fiscal year
were tabled in the House on the 8th inst. by the finance minister.

FAILURES IN CANADA
Commercial insolvencies in the Dominion of Canada during the
lonth of April as reported to R. G. Dun & Co. were 115 in number,
irith defaulted indebtedness of $14,341,518.   As to number there is
considerable increase this year, the total for April, 1910, being
|nly 88, and that in 1909 only 102.   There were 40 suspensions in
ie manufacturing division this year, with liabilities of $494,436,
[rhich compares with 290 last year for $247,959 and 24 in April,
j, when only $117,311 was involved.
In the trading division 72 failures occurred, with indebtedness
jgregating $702,699, while last year there were 56 for $1,062,407,
id two years ago 86, with liabilities of $719,132.  In addition to the
|bove there were three failures in the brokerage class involving
■12,576, against 30 last year for $56,000, and exactly the same num-
Ier in 1909 for only $9,750.   In the trading class the figures were
istorted by a single failure in Quebec for upward of $250,000, while
st year there were four suspensions with aggregate indebtedness
more than $750,000.
DOMINION STEEL
In regard to the selection of vice-presidents of the Steel Corpor-
(ion and the Steel Company to succeed the late Senator Forget,
ho occupied both positions, it is understood that nothing definite
as decided upon at a late meeting of directors, but it can be stated
)on excellent authority that there is every chance of Sir William
Ian Home being vice-president of the Dominion Steel Corporation,
hile Mr. William McMaster will likely be vice-president of the
jminion Iron & Steel Company.
This should prove an excellent choice for the two vacant of-
[.es and a popular choice as well.
ASBESTOS WEALTH OF CANADA
Canada produces 82 per cent of the world's supply of asbestos,
ie companies operating asbestos quarries and factories in the Do-
inion are capitalized at $24,290,000. In 1880 only 380 tons of as-
stos were produced, valued at $24,700; whereas in 1909 the pro-
ction amounted to 63,300 tons, valued at $2,300,000. In 1909,
men were employed in the asbestos industry, and received
tges amounting to $1,350,000. These facts and much valuable
phnical information of practical value to the general public, are
itained in a volume of 316 pages, just issued by the Mines Branch
ithe Department of Mines, Ottawa. This valuable addition to the
ies of monographs being issued under the direction of Dr. Han-
I, was written by Fritz Cirkel, M.E., and treats the subject of as-
stos from every viewpoint: history, geology, peculiarities of Can-
ian occurrences, quarrying and milling, together with statistics,
it of extraction, its occurrence in foreign countries, and its practi-
application in the arts and manufactures. The work is fully infesting. To give an idea of the enormous reserves in some of the
jestos deposits, Mr. Cirkel mentions the case of one, the Black
ke quarries, Quebec, where there are some 45,000,000 tons of as-
stos rock in sight. The author goes fully into the discussion of
eign asbestos occurrences, and considers Russia the only real
al as regards extent of asbestos resources.
ISLANDS AWAKENING
C. Gillingham, road engineer for the Queen Charlotte Islands,
Ii in Prince Rupert lately for a few days.   He reported that the
nds look forward to a very busy season. Already there are abun-
t evidences of the coming activity.   The spring is opening up
a steady influx of people, and various enterprises are preparing
|active operations.
The day he left Rose Harbor in the south, eight whales had
In taken and the whaling company are sure to find the southern
lion one of the best on the coast.   The station at Naden Harbor
pkewise expected to be important, the Queen Charlotte stations
ig probably the best in the chain established in the Pacific coast.
The mining interests are active early and there promises to be
excellent season's work done in the mines.   The Morgan group
|r Lockport will spend $5,000 at once, it is announced, in prepara-
development work at the properties.   Other mining ventures
spending similar amounts or larger sums in testing what the
Ims are like, so that there is promise of a very active mining
pon.
An early start is being made on the roads.   Mr. Gillingham is
Iiusiastic over the islands as a farming centre and says there is a
iriant growth of grass already oh vast areas. This is going to
te for want of cattle to put upon it.
MILLIONS ON MONTREAL TERMINALS OF G. T. R.
It was officially announced at the Grand Trunk offices in Mon-
11 recently that the Company proposes to spend between nine and
million dollars on its great scheme for the improvement of its
linal facilities in Montreal.
The plans for this scheme have now been laid before the Rail-
Commission as well as before the city authorities. They em-
(e the elevation of the tracks between Bonaventure Station and
cot Yards, and from St. Henry to the Point St. Charles Yards.
The work as contemplated also includes the erection of new
jht and passenger terminals at Bonaventure. The plans for this
I station are as yet tentative, as they are to a certain extent

bound up with the scheme for the elevation of the tracks. When
this scheme has been approved by the city authorities and the Railway Commission the plans for the station will be decided upon immediately.
Alternative plans for the building have already been prepared.
They show a magnificent structure—one commensurate with the
magnitude of the company's system and with the importance of the
city. Like the new station buildings the C. P. R. is erecting, it will
far surpass any building of the kind in the Dominion, outside of
Montreal.
The city will be asked to contribute towards the cost of elevating the tracks. It already has permission from the Legislature to
spend up to two million dollars on such contribution.
G. T. P. CONSTRUCTION UP SKEENA RIVER
Sheady & Paget, G. T. P. construction contractors, will be
through with the six-mile stretch above Kitwangar by July i, when
the steam shovel and outfit will be moved to their new work 20
miles east of Hazelton. The tunnel on Bostrom's work has been
abandoned and will be turned into an open cut. The excavation will
amount to something over 500,000 yards and a route for a temporary line is being surveyed around this piece of work for use until tbe
cut can be completed.
Thirty-one boatloads of cement will be required for the piers of
the bridge across Skeena river. The cribs to be sunk in the river,
within which the excavation for the foundations will be made, will
use up a million feet of timber and 40 tons of iron.
At Prairie Creek, east of the Yellowhead Pass, a huge solid
steel quarter-million dollar bridge is being built across the gulch
for the G. T. P. Several hundred yards further westward another
large steel bridge will carry the transcontinental across the Athabasca river. At Battle river, east of Edmonton, there is the largest
trestle in the world, nearly a mile long. At Clover Bar, 10 miles
east of Edmonton, there is the highest concrete pier bridge in the
world. These bridges mentioned are only a few of those to be built
for the Grand Trunk Pacific.
A RICH MINERAL TERRITORY
An enormously rich mineral country lies along the main line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific through the Yellowhead Pass in the vicinity of Tete Juane Cache. That is the statement made by M. Che-
nier, prospector, who returned to Edmonton after having spent four
weeks in the district referred to. Mr, Chenier staked several valu-
abl mining claims while in the mountains. He travelled to a distance of 50 miles beyond Tete Juane Cache to a point down the
western slope of the Rockies. He found minerals of all kinds in
abundance, and has no hesitation in saying that entire sections of
the country will prove very rich, and that enormous mine development will take place when the main lines of railway are completed
through the Pass.
Iron, copper, silver and other minerals lie in abundance in the
country Mr. Chenier prospected, according to his statement. There
is plenty of indication of the existence of rich veins of every ciass of
mineral.
"The only thing that is needed now," said the prospector, "is
railway transportation. This has been my fourth trip into the mountains, and every succeeding time I have found richer claims. The
G. T. P. will be completed in another year or two, and that will
mean the commencement of the development of all this mineral
country.
"There is very little mineral t'o be found on the east slope.
Nearly all of it is on the other side of the divide."
AMES-HOLDEN BOND ISSUE FOR LONDON
The Montreal-London Securities Corporation recently formed, is
about to offer, through Parr's Bank, £205,500 six per cent, thirty
years first mortgage sinking fund bonds of the Ames, Holden-Mc-
Cready Co., Ltd., of Montreal, the large boot and shoe manufacturing enterprise.
BANK OF MONTREAL HAS PAID OFF GOVT. LOAN
The Bank of Montreal, as agent for the Government of Canada,
has repaid £1,635,858 of the four per cent, stock which fell due recently.
The amount formed the balance of the original loan of £4,000,-
000 issued in 1874, which has been reduced by repayments and conversion to the sum mentioned.
The Standard says, "That a loan of this importance should have
been redeemed without raising fresh capital or making any special
provision for it speaks well for the finances of Canada, which, of
course, are well known to be in a very flourishing condition.
BANK OF MONTREAL BUYS CALGARY BONDS
Calgary has just sold over $1,000,000 4y2 per cent, bonds to the
Bank of Montreal for 103. This is the best price in the history of
Calgary, and about the best in the west. Six years ago the same
bonds sold for 88.

On
the Banks
of
the Skeena
1
\
The Only Main Townsite in B.C. in which the G.T.P. Railway
Company has announced its Joint Ownership
LOOK AT THE MAP
Ellison, you will find, occupies the
strategic commercial point which seems
bound to command all the trade of the
Interior tributary to Prince Rupert. It is.
where the steel rails of the transcontinental
railway from' the Atlantic touch the salt
waters of the Pacific on the navigable
waters of the Skeena River. As a port it
will be second only to Prince Rupert in
the northern part of this province, and is
also second to this city as the only other
townsite in which the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway and the Government are jointly
interested in which lots are offered for
sale.
WHAT ARE  WE
HERE FOR?
We are all Pioneers. Not here for our
health, but to make money. No man ever
saved more than a competence on a salary;
few do that. To get a footing on "Easy
Street" you have to invest. DOLLARS
don't grow in your pockets, or in a stocking. They must be put to work. Old
Russell Sage said: "Plant a few in a new
country and see how fast they grow."
And here is the biggest opportunity of this
kind that is likely to knock at your door
this year.
IF YOU OWN ELLISON LOTS LIST
THEM WITH US
READ CURRENT HISTORY
Prince Rupert lot speculators do not
need to have pointed out to them what
magic lies in the announcement that the
great railway company and the Government are partners in the Ellison townsite.
That should be enough to bring them
a-running. But not everybody' has the
time to read the newspapers as closely as
your uncle. In the Manitoba Free Press of
April sth, for instance, there was a big
headline reading: "Hundred and seventy
new towns to be Born in Western Canada
During .the Company Year." Reading the
list one finds many are. Grand Trunk Pacific towns, but not one in British Columbia.
No, Ellison and Prince Rupert are the
townsites in which the railway is directly
interested at this time.
"_
ELLISON
WHERE ATLANTIC LOCOMOTIVES WILL TOOT SALUTE TO PACIFIC
STEAMERS ON THE SKEENA RIVER
ELLISON
One of the most popular of all the official reports published by the British Columbia Government is the one bearing upon its title page the
caption: "New British Columbia," which has become generally known as "Bulletin No. 22," that
being the official number of the report. • It has been
widely distributed and you will have little difficulty
in finding one. On one page of this popular report
you will read this official declaration: "Upper
Skeena will become one of the garden spots of
British Columbia."
ELLISON, from its advantageous position,
with the Skeena River navigable for large steamers
at its front, a great transcontinental railway intersecting it, should naturally become the metropolis
of the wonderful garden spot of British Columbia
referred to in the official report.
ELLISON lots are ready sellers. Why?
Just study the map a minute or two.
ELLISON is a townsite in which the Government and the Grand Trunk Pacific are active partners. There can, therefore, be not even a shadow
of doubt as to its future success. You are invited
to share in this certain success by investing in a
few town lots while they are at bottom prices.
ELLISON should, within a short time, have a
regular train service, as it is but a little distance
from Mile 104, to which point it is expected that
trains from Prince Rupert will be running this
summer.
ELLISON may not be the only pebble on the
Skeena River beach, but it certainly is the only
townsite on that navigable water in which the
railway company have announced themselves
interested. No doubt next year there may be other
additions and sections put on the market, but by
that time prices will have gone up. Now you
, have a chance to be in on the ground floor.
DOLLARS invested in good ground, rapidly
grow.   Did you look at that map?
WHERE the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Government are joint owners in a townsite the lots
should be regarded as a safe investment. Where
one might and properly should hesitate before
investing in townsites promoted by individuals or
tOwn-promoting companies, there can be no hesitancy or misgiving as to town lots in which the
Government and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
are jointly interested.
ELLISON is different. Do you catch on?
What better guarantee can you possibly look for?
PRINCE RUPERT'S brief history will be repeated in the sale of ELLISON town lots.
ELLISON should have the most rapid growth
of any new town in British Columbia or anywhere
else. Lots in the sections we are now offering for
sale, as well as such additions and sections that may
be offered later, may be calculated to bring investors similar returns to those resulting from the
first sale of Prince Rupert town lots.
ELLISON, where the Grand Trunk Pacific
Transcontinental trains from the Atlantic will first
strike that wonderful Skeena River.
ELLISON needs at present merchants, hotel
men, "the baker, the butcher and the candlestick
maker," more than lot speculators, but they will
come later all right, as they did in Prince Rupert,
and pay BIG RENTS.
ELLISON tradespeople will live in a town
where railway freight rates will always be regulated
by the competition of water transportation, as
Ellison will be the last important landing up the
Skeena River. It is where the railway leaves the
Skeena Valley to follow that of the famous Bulklev
Valley.
ELLISON is on the market NOW. It is very
doubtful if any other Grand Trunk townsite in
British Columbia will be on the market this year.
ELLISON is destined to be the principal shipping point not only for the agricultural belt in the
Bulkley and adjacent valleys—just glance at the
map again and see what a vast country will depend
on Ellison for its supplies and transportation for
its products. And then, when Grand Trunk
officials announce the fact that it is THE townsite
in the Hazelton district in which their company
is interested, you are reminded of the great mining
activity that district is promised this season, the
machinery to go in and the rich ore to come out.
ELLISON is the first spring opening of Grand
Trunk Pacific offerings in the way of town lot
opportunities. There may be others later, but
there's no certainty when. Come early and select
Ellison lot, 20 per cent cash, balance easy terms,
7 per cent, interest. A few lots in Ellison Town-
site for sale—Inside lots $250.00 each; corner lots
$350.00 each.

name of the writer or a nom de
plume, but the writer's name and address must be given to the Editor as
an evidence of bona fides. In no case

R. S. V. P.
Victoria, May 6th.
To the Editor of The Week:
Touching A. J. Brace and his
imaginings not substantiated, it recalls to my mind a very truthful and
interrogatory query in the shape of
a letter to the Colonist signed by
John Hirsch.
This was some years ago after one
of A. J. Brace's accounts or lectures
on the South African campaign. Mr.
Hirsch's letter called for an immediate reply, either a refutation of a
pertinent enquiry, or a bold sticking
to facts. I have been waiting patiently to read some sort of an explanation, but hitherto (unless I
missed the issue) nothing has been
forthcoming to refute Mr. Hirsch's
challenging enquiry.
Now, all who know John Hirsch
know too, what a smart and good
citizen he is and his word and conduct above suspicion and reproach.
He was an excellent soldier and
played his part well and unostentatiously, slipping into South Africa
and out of it without heralding or
appeals to the gallery.
Now that the Brace cum Holling
episode has occurred, it simply occurs to me: "Hello, our man has overreached himself," and since by his
own choosing he has won notoriety
by clashing with the police and cajoling the people by no end of "pour
parlers," he will choose a way out—
according to the weak,up-to-date expression—along the lines of least resistance.
I may say, I know the police of
Victoria and a more patient, non-
advertising, unseeking body of men
it would be hard to meet in any large
city.
This does not mean to convey the
idea that they are supine or negligent
of their responsibilities; on the contrary they are wideawake and their
mills grind slowly and exceedingly
small, and proof of this statement lies
in the fact that Victoria is probably
the most law-abiding city in Canada.
The recent attempt to achieve no-
tri'ety at the expense of the citizens of
Victoria has signally failed and the attempt will not reflect on the police department, but it does reflect disadvantageous^ on those who cried "wolf"
and so signally failed to establish
even first premises. The hysteria
wihch from time to time affects the
"unco guid" is a species of emotional
insanity, a temporary season of mental dram-drinking purely due to the
individual being overcome by the exuberance of his own verbosity and
slave to an egoistical imagination.
A dark room, complete abstinence
from food, and a genuine session of
fasting and prayer work wonders on
the approach of first symptoms, and I
commend the treatment and retirement to any such who seek short cuts
to notoriety by allowing themselves
to become a prey to the curse of their
ovn morbid imaginings.
For once the newspapers of Victoria have united in a worthy cause,
calling down the "called," but alas and
apparently "not chosen."
Recevez, monsieur, l'assurance de
mes sentiments les plus distingue?

The Harbour Master's attention
has frequently been called to the
floating debris in the Harbour; and
we have tried to get the Rules and
Regulations governing the management of harbours so amended that
some efficient check may be applicable
to this class of offence. We also have
suggested the founding of a special
Harbour Police to assist the Harbour
Master in the enforcement of the
regulations and in the conviction and
punishment of offenders.

THE
Hat Pin Protector
The Hat Pin Protector Co., Ltd.
There is not an article on the market to be compared with this marvelously
simple invention. This Hat Pin Protector was invented by a Victoria citizen to meet
the demands of a growing fashion, i. e.—the large hat pin.
Victoria, B.C.
The capital of the above company which has been formed to take over the
Canadian and United States patents of William Nepean-Hutchinson, has been placed at
$30,000 divided into 6,000 shares, fully paid
and non-assessable
Of this stock 1,000 fully paid up shares are allotted to Wm. Nepean-Hutchinson,
423 Young Street, Victoria, B.C. The company further agrees to pay the inventor
$10,000.00 for full patent rights, but the sum of $10,000.00 will not become due until the
company is on a working basis. The balance of 5,000 shares have been placed' in
treasury of the company, which will be
Offered to the Public at $5,00 a share
To be fully paid up, and the minimum subscription upon which the Directors may
proceed to allotment shall be Five (5) shares. The holding of One (1) share in the
company shall entitle such holder to be a director of the company.
EXPENSES OF THE COMPANY
The estimated preliminary expenses of the company, including issuance of
Prospectus, and incorporation of company, will be approximately $300.00.
What the Hat Pin Protector really is
The 'Hutchinson Hat Pin Protector is on the principle of a spring, which
engages the point of the pin upon whicii it is placed, and is released by natural
pressure on the end when the hand is lifted to remove it. There is nothing to get
out of order or jam in any way. The article is one of that large class of patents
whose very simplicity is one of their greatest recommendations for the use of whicii
they are designed.
COST OF MANUFACTURE IS SMALL
That the stock is valuable goes without saying.   Now is your opportunity.

The inaugural ball which opened
the new Alexandra Club building last
Tuesday evening, proved to be a most
brilliant and successful function. The
ball room was most beautifully decorated for the occasion, the walls being hung with empire wreaths, composed of ferns and white arabis and
pale pink blossoms just showing.
They were tied with pale blue scarfs.
The gallery was most artistically decorated with numerous palms. Refreshments were served during the
evening in the cafe, which was decorated with yellow daffodils artistically
combined with yellow broom and buttercups.
The supper tables were daintily arranged with pale pink tulips, carnations, Madonna lilies, Marguerite daisies and maidenhair ferns.
Turner's orchestra was in attendance for the evening.

were;

women   welcome   the   return
the new spring and summer
lals, of soft glossy taffetas in
lin dark shades of color and in
pale-toned narrow stripes. These
dainty things are turned into the prettiest afternoon gowns imaginable.
The origin of their quaint affectations is easily traced to old prints of
the period of the directoire—a period
greatly loved by several of the great
Paris designers. In black and dark
colors, these soft, old-fashioned taffetas are quite ideal for summer travelling gowns, and long belted redin-
gotes worn over lingerie frocks.
* *   *
There is nothing more interesting
to be noted of fashions than the clever way in which ideas of past seasons
have been re-adapted. Many of them
are so differently carried out that
the source of their inspiration is hardly recognizable and they thus pass
for innovations. For instance there
are the transparent coats—the redin-
gotes—and there is the eton. Now
the two suggestions have been combined, and the result is a near novelty, much more satisfactory than
either by itself, although this must
not be taken as an inference that the
short coat is losing any of the favoritism shown for it before the season
commenced, nor that the long coats
worn as overdresses are not to be
seen in their original state, but only
that, in place of transparencies, they
are being made in limp batiste, flowered organdies, and embroideries of
every description, cut, as just intimated, with an eton or bolero top.
* *   *
Odd touches, novel combinations of
color, originalities in the shape of
coats, unusual developments in trimmings, unexpected phases in the materials themselves and a hundred
other features more or less important
make the wardrobe of the present season uncommonly distinctive. One of
the trig details is the dainty addition
of colored collars to waists that are
otherwise subdued in tone. These
collars are more often than not of
sailor shape at the back, while the
fronts partake of the same style,
sometimes with sailor knots to finish
them, or have lapels and freakish finishes. Big round collars of the Puritan order are also used, and it looks
as though the style of the round cape-
shaped Puritan collar was a coming
one of which much would be heard
during the ensuing months. These
odd collars on separate blouses or on
gown bodices are made of chiffon,
silk muslin, messaline, or of quaint
printed silks, often of handkerchiefs.
Sometimes the waist will be piped
with a bright color such as king or
delft blue, orange or corn color, emerald or a duller green, coral or some
other modish red, or with black and
white stripe, and the collar will be
of silk or gauze in the same tone or
stripe. It is possible to refurbish an
old waist in such a way and bring it
quite up to the fashion of the hour.
* *   *
Wide crushed belts of black moire
or satin with buckles covered with
the material of the belt are among
the newest things at the belt counter.
Various widths, from three to six
inches are to be had. With little
summer frocks the shaped girdle
promises a good many variations.
One seen with a white dimity flowered with yellow is of yellow satin,
and is low at the front and cut to
cross over at the back and shape into
two deep points that reach upto the
shoulder blades. The effect is something like the old peasant waist, and
on a pretty figure is effective. Girdles
of this order are used on handsome
gowns as well as on simple frocks.
So many beads have been introduced into trimmings and even into
the very texture of the fabris themselves that already there are predic-

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1911
THE SEISMOLOGICAL OBSERVATORY      THE SHOP ACT
The Victoria Board of Trade has
every reason to be gratified with the result of its efforts to secure the establishment of a seismologicul observatory in or
near Victoria. Thanks to the valuable
data collected by Mr. Napier Denison, the
sub-committee was able to prepare its report very quickly. After being endorsed
by the City Council, the Natural History
Society and the Vancouver Island Development League it was forwarded to Mr.
G. H. Barnard, the member for the City,
who presented it to the Minister of Marine
and Fisheries. Within three days of presentation the Minister sent an official acknowledgment indicating compliance with
the request of the petitioners. Meanwhile,
Mr. Joshua Kingham, fully alive to the
importance of the subject, had been communicating with the authorities at Ottawa and this concentration of effort seems
to have culminated in a speedy decision
to act on the suggestion of both parties
and grant Mr. Denison leave of absence
to lay his valuable researches before the
Canadian and English authorities.   It is    WAKE UP
People have been wondering when the
authorities intended to enforce the provisions of the Shop Act with respect to
the hours of employment of young persons
and the provision of seats for girls employed in stoips. It cannot be pleaded
that this excellent measure is not supported by public opinion and yet months
have passed without the slightest attempt
being made to enforce it. The Week does
not pretend to know whe|re .-the blame
rests, but it does know that in the largest
store in Victoria the girls work longer
hours than the Act allows, and they are
not all provided with seats. Far from
it. Some of the smaller stores may be
deficient in these respects, but it is not
so conspicuous and therefore the casual
observer may not have found it out.
What with small pay, long hours and
lack of such rest appliances as the dictates of humanity would suggest the lot
of a shop-girl in a large trade emporium
"is not all it's cracked up to be."
now known that the necessary leave of
absence will be granted, and sufficient
funds placed in Mr. Denison's control to
carry out the proposed programme, a consummation on whicii the Board of Trade,
Mr. Barnard and Mr. Kingham are to be
congratulated.
THE ALEXANDRA CLUB
The Week tenders its hearty congratulations to Mrs. Croft, Mrs. Hasell and
the other ladies of the committee whose
splendid efforts have resulted in providing
a new club-house which is a credit to the
city of Victoria. Housed in what, is
really a palatial building the old times
in the stuffy little rooms over Challoner
& Mitchell's must already begin to look
like the day of small things. "Mere
man" can know little of the comfort and
pleasure whicii even the modest appointments of the old club enabled the ladies
of Victoria to enjoy. In their new home
they may well be the envy of the "superior" sex. The whole appointments are
excellent, but the Assembly Boom far exceeds the expectations of those who for
years have been longing for a floor fit to
dance on and a room fit to sing in. If
the ladies' Committee decides, to allow
this beautiful room to be used for high
class concerts and a certain class of public
meetings as well as for dancing it will
indeed meet a want, as well as be a means
of adding materially to the funds of the
Club. In any event The Week extends
its heartiest congratulations to the ladies
who must .have worked indefatigably to
have produced such a result, and especially
to the President whose ability and popularity are so signally displayed in the success of the Club.
AN ASSISTANT ENGINEER
Would the Mayor and Council accept a
suggestion which has been heard during
the week at several street corners, and
whicli is tendered in good faith . If they
desire to secure an assistant engineer, or
a constructional engineer, why not insert
an advertisement in the local papers and
give a chance to all-comers? If they were
seeking a Chief Engineer it may be admitted that direct personal negotiations
would be the better plan, but in the other
event it may safely be said that there are
several good men now at the Coast whose
• claims are worth consideration, and as a
big contract has been let it is none too
soon to secure the special supervision necessary. Without wishing to be censorious The Week is bound to say that the
present condition of a large number of
the streets is in the highest degree discreditable to those who responsible. There
is obviously a lack of system if one judges
only by the unnecessary repetition of
trench-digging and filling, whicii becomes
peculiarly objectionable when it runs to
digging up green boulevards and shrubs
because someone—unknown—has forgotten a sixth pipe-line.
The inhabitants of Salt Spring Island,
numbering one hundred, have petitioned
the Vancouver Board of Trade to assist in
the establishment of a boat service between
the island and the Terminal City. What
are the merchants of Victoria going to do
about it? Salt Spring Island is much
nearer to Victoria than to Vancouver and'
has always been looked upon as our legitimate market. It has been declared within
a few days that Victoria merchants can
sell as cheaply as their competitors in Vancouver ; if so, they should be able to hold
the whole of the trade on the island, and
if the holding of it depends to any extent
on establishing a steamer service, surely
the very moderate amount of capital required should be forth-coming. It seems
almost remarkable that more than a month
should have elapsed since the loss of the
Iroquois without some other vessel being
placed on the run, and this in the day of
Victoria's awakening! Will no one come
to the rescue?
GREAT HONOUR FOR B. C.
Apropos of the paragraph appearing
elsewhere in the current issue announcing
the appointment of the son of Mr. Cliye
Phillips Wolley to the command of a Destroyer it may be well to recall the fact
that British Columbia has indeed been
highly honoured in connection with recent
developments for naval defence. A son of
Senator MacDonald of Victoria is commander of the Niobe and head of the Canadian squadron. A son of Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper of Vancouver has just passed
the highest examination at Osborne with
the highest possible honours, and a son of
Mr. J. Maitland Dougall of Duncans came
out first in the Dominion in the recent examination of cadets. All this should be
exceedingly gratifying to British Columbians who have taken such a firm stand in
connection with the navy.
JUVENILE CRIME
The women of Ontario are face to face
with a serious problem. Mrs. Asa Gordon
stated at a public meeting at Toronto that
"juvenile crime is on the increase from
ocean to ocean." The Victoria Times very
correctly points out that if this is so
it means that "woman as a mother is a
failure," a conclusion with which The
Week does not agree, but it certainly
places upon the shoulders of those who are
responsible for the training of our children
the task of proving why their efforts have
not been more successful. The Times is
quite right in one statement, which is that
there is far too great a tendency now-a-
days to shift responsibility from the home
to the school. It is too soon to become pessimistic on the subject of our youth, but it
will not be a minute too soon when parents
look to the school, the church or the"
state to relieve them of their natural responsibilities. A motto for the future
may well be "Back to the Home."
THE MOTOR-CAR SMASH
Is it possible that the motor-car smash-
up on Bockland Avenue will have any
influence on the reckless chauffeurs who
make night hideous, and keep peaceful
citizens awake between two o'clock and
four o'clock in the morning with their
speeding and tooting? The Week is almost tired of complaining about this kind
of thing on Rockland Avenue, and is hot
at all surprised at the serious accident
which might easily have been a catastrophe. The unfortunate sufferers have
already paid the penalty of thoughtlessness, but is it too late to ask for a mounted policeman to be stationed in that neighbourhood, at least occasionally, in the
nigllt-time? There are two points to
which he might direct his attention, both
of which involve breaches of the Automobile Act—speeding and joy-riding.
MORE COFFIN SHIPS
i
With the official enquiry into the loss
of the Sechelt and the Iroquois shortly
to be held The Week ventures to suggest
that the attention of the proper authorities might well be directed to the fact
that there are at least two other well-
known coffin ships plying in the Straits.
These vessels could not for a moment pass
an honest examination, and that they have
not gone to the bottom long ago must be
due to the efforts of "the little cherub
that sits up aloft to keep watch o'er the
life of poor Jack." There is little doubt
that whatever the result of the enquiry
may be as affecting individuals the net
result will undoubtedly be to revolutionize the present system of inspection of
hulls.
COMRADE HAWTHORNWAITE
It would be a pity for any mere journalist to "butt in" on the operation of
"flaying" which is being so skilfully performed upon the carcass of Comrade Hawthornthwaite by the Victoria Times. It
is only natural that the Liberal press
should indulge in crowing, and even in
cacchination, at the deplorable figure
which the erstwhile chanticleer of Socialism now cuts. As the operation is yet far
from completion The Week will possess its
soul in patience until the last cuticle is
removed. Meanwhile it is permissible to
remind the readers of this journal that it
is just seven years since it commented on
that "false note" in the unctuous tones of
the Comrade's voice about which the
Times now chortles with such unholy glee.
THE CASE OF THE HINDUS
Dr. Sunder Singh has made out a good
case for the six thousand peaceable, law-
abiding Hindus resident in British Columbia. They labour under disadvantages
imposed on no other British subjects; they
are discriminated against in favour of
Japs and Chinamen; they are deprived
of the most sacred rights of a British subject. All this is wrong and must be remedied. To say this is not to abate one jot
of the determination which The Week has
expressed against Oriental immigration.
It is simply to urge that British subjects
who are already here, and legally so,
should be treated with British justice regardless of their colour. To attain this
justice the assistance of their white fellow-
subjects is necessary and should be forthcoming. ■
CROWNED WITH HONOUR
Mr. E. B. McKay, for many years
Surveyor-General of British Columbia,
has resigned the very honourable position
which he has filled with such credit and
distinction. A more genial and popular
men does not exist, and on his retirement
Mr. McKay will take with him the goodwill of every Government employee and of
every outsider who has had the pleasure of
doing business with him.   Although
McKay may have reached the age lir
prescribed by the Public Service Act
has still before him many years of usefi]
ness and The Week hopes many years
happiness.
