ftvor of letting well   alone.     The
eral party can hope to appeal to the
.constituencies wit any prospect of
success it will have to find a leader
and a policy. It is about time to set
out on the search. J. A. Macdonald
will never be Premier, and a campaign
of villification and personal abuse will
never win the Province.
A Pair of The unscrupulous and
Beauties. irresponsible vaporings
of men like D. W. Higgins and E. Jacobs, whom an undis-
cerning fate has led to the control of
once respectable journals, give rise to
many reflections. The best journalists in all ages have agreed that the
writer who prostitutes his high calling to the gratification or personal
spleen, and who takes advantage of
liis position to wreak private vengeance is "a fellow of the baser sort."
Both men mentioned above have signalized their brief, but already too
long, occupancy of the editorial chair
by a series of personal attacks which
they know to be false and of which
the disproof was in their possession
when they penned their malicious
diatribes. They cannot injure the
objects of their fury in the eyes of]
any who know the writers, or the
persons vilified, but unfortunately
they can blacken the fame of decent]
jouralism by the exercise of their
peculiar and prurient gifts. Perhaps
the best word on vultures of this class
who only feed with satisfaction on
carrion, has been spoken by Senator
Lodge. He says: "Writers of that
type come and go. They seize upon
the excitement of the moment and
presently rise like a flock of shore
birds and whirl away to another spot
where they think they can find a
fresh feeding grounds. These modem
imitators of Titus Oates will pass

which at first were as antagonistic as
the capitalists because at that time
they thought it was a church-going
movement, are now a unit in support
of the Bill and are fighting its battles
in the House shoulder to shoulder
with the Alliance. If any man has
the right to his day of rest and to
spend it as he sees fit it is the workingman. Is it suggested that he can
either be coaxed or coerced into
church-going against his will? Then
there is the startling fact, admitted
by the opponents of the measure, that
100,000 men are compelled to work
every Sunday in Canada. Is this
right, or is it an infringement of
personal liberty? But, it is sometimes
urged, Sunday labour is not compulsory, it is optional, and men often
prefer to work on that day. We can
readily believe it when they know that
the penalty of refusal is dismissal.
On May 28th a despatch appeared in
the Colonist stating that several carpenters who were working on the
erection of the Canadian smelter were
discharged for refusing to work on
Sunday. These three facts surely go
far to justify the legislation and the
last clearly shows that compulsion,
in its most objectionable form still
flourishes. The only solution is legislation, and the fit time is now, when
the fonudations of a great nation are
being laid, deep and broad on the
principles which in the main have
shaped the destinies of the Empire.
ficient reward for a life of service,

Water for A month ago, before the
Victoria. welcome rains broke up
a season of prolonged
drought, thoughtful people began to
get uneasy about the water supply
of the Capital City. The badly needed relief came, and for the moment
the difficulty is tided over. But the
relief is only temporary. The elaborate and probably final, judgment of
Mr. Justice Duff accentuates in a
marked degree the legal aspects of the
question, and "inter alia", shows
how narrowly the city escaped serious
and they are not ignoble, a satisfaction which no other occupation gives.
In spite of the scoffs and jeers of
partizaiis who can see nothing except
through political spectacles, the journalist who has good principles and
sticks to them gains day by day in
public favor until recognition comes,
and with it influence in moulding
public opinion, and that is a guerdon
worth striving for.

to follow the lead of the Mayor in a
buccaneering expedition to Gold-
stream It is not likely that any
money will be wasted in an appeal
and the best thing the city can do
is to get down to business and make
terms with the company for Gold-
stream. Elk Lake is out of the question as a permanent source of supply,
and if $320,000 be spent now on that
scheme it will not be many years before the city will have to revert to
the Goldstream project and by that
time the industries of the Island will
have been developed to such an extent that the water may all have been
harnessd for power purposes. This
is essentiolly a matter in which delays are dangerous.
In the desert of political
life there is an oasis; it
is the spot rendered
fresh and bright by the illustrious
services of a loyal, devoted, and
courteous Lieutenant-Governor. Not
until Sir Henri Joly is leaving Victoria do people begin to realize that
his departure means the passing of a
noble knight who has dignified the
position which for six years he has
so ably filled. With him also passes
the old school of which he is the last,
and one of the worthiest representatives. The sterling qualities which
go to make up men of honour and integrity in all ages and in all climes
will be reproduced in many a successor, but the distinguished air, the
courtly grace, the punctilious manner,
the gentle spirit, these rarer gifts are

Indnstry. eral and like others of its
class is on that account of
special value. The world's production is less than 500 tons and it real
ises upwards of $1,000 a ton. It is
used chiefly for "hardening" steel
for which purpose it is superior to
any other known mineral. There are
only four producing mines, one ..in
Australia, one in Germany, one in
Sweden, and one at Pitt Lake, near
Vancouver. Small stringers have been
found in Nova Scotia but the quantity is too trifling to pay. Capital has
been secured to work the Pitt Lake

it will be a matter of interest to note
the result.

master mind that originated the
"boodle" policy of the friends of the
Federal Government and that with
his usual sinister adroitness, he managed to cover his own tracks and
place the responsibility on the shoulders of subordinates wlio had graduated with honours in his "theives'
kitchen." That men who had compromised their reputation in connection with reprehensible election practices, as Preston and Jury had, should
have been considered good enough to
represent the Dominion in London
says little for the judgment of the
Canadian Governmeut or for the "intelligent" acquiescence of the people of England. That they can be

Victory, that are worse than defeats. They are victories,
for which too high a price is paid.
One of these has just been scoed at
Fernie where by dint of transferring
35 lots to its own employees the coal
company has defeated the by-law
which was intended to give the citizens a water-system of their own. By
this skilful move success was assured.
Only property owners could vote, and
it was simply a matter of calculation
as to how many transfers would have
to be made. In fact so accurate was
the calculation that the voting was
S3 to 82. This method of securing
votes opens up a wide field for speculation in the possibilities of muzzling
the public. It could only have originated, as it did, in Toronto, among

* A Lady's Letter f
Dear Madge:—
The supremacy of the American shirt
waist is generally admitted, and even
as regards more dressy models we may
glean many ideas advantageously. The
American woman rarely makes the mistake of overloading her habiliments with
decorative detail, and never, at all
events, does she do so to the detriment
of their outline. It is, indeed, this craze
for line irrespective of fashionable fads
which has enabled the American woman
to surpass her English cousins, yea and
her French friends in the art of dressing.
For instance here is an example of a
smart American "lingerie" shirt made
with a three-fold plastron which splits
in thc centre to reveal a slender V-
shaped vest of substantial embroidery,
the bifurcating portion running over
the shoulders in theree pleats or folds
The sleeves are inlet with embroidery
flanked by stitched pleats, and the waist
is provided with a belt of emproidered
webbing. Among summer materials
two old-time favorites, voile and foul
ard, and the fore, and the following
exquisite frock that I saw the other
day, was carried out in beaver-tolored
silk voile over yellow taffetas. The
skirt was finely pleated to just below
the knees and finished with two soft
puffings and a wide frill. Tiny rosettes of chiffon formed an edging to
the frill and the upper puffing, and a
panel of cross-way tucks was outlined
by the same dainty trimming. The bodice, made blouse fashion, had a short
yoke and a deep belt of gold gauze
printed with a rose design, and the
sleeves were made with a double puff
with a little frill between the two.
Many of the newest crepes and muslins show a faint self colored stripe, and
embroidered effects are also very popular. Very elaborate trousseau peticoats
are now being made with hand embroidered flounces, the embroidery being carried out in colors. Thus an ivory
skirt is embellished with a trellis and
a dog rose design worked in natural
A very pretty half-mourning "jupon"
has a flounce conventionally embroidered in black and white, chocolate-
brown chiffon over chine silk with a
blurred design of roses toning from dull
pink to softest grey on a white ground;
such was the "text" of a sorselet gown,
thc very essence of "Parisian chic,"
which tempted my jaded eyes only yesterday. Narrow pleats secured by feather stitching formed the corselet effect, and then the chiffon flowed out
softl to the hem, which was adorned by
three frills, narrow rather than wide,
outlined with tiny gathered ribbon edging. The corselet was defined by a
band of brown velvet edged with chine
silk and the upper part of the corsage
consisted of lace overlaid with handsome silk embroidery, in wWich thc
grey and pink of thc under robe were
repeated. Billowing sleeves of puffed
chiffon were confined above by a broad
band of Ihe silk and finished with wee
Like grow-up people who take infantile
complaints, such as measles and mumps,
very badly, I have caught the motor
microbe at last, having held out superior
while thc rest of one's world had thc
raging epidemic in all its phrases. I
caught it last week while leisurely
touring out to Goldstream in a "Russell," a little gem of a machine which
cost only $1,500 and was bought at the
Canada Cycle and Motor Co., Ltd., 83
Pender street, Vancouver, B.C. The
consequence is that "I shall not be
happy till I get one."
Motors and the kodak question are
naturally in closely connected sequence.
A motor tour in the country without a
kodak would lose half its charm. By
tbe way, I have at last discovered an
excellent place where one may send one's
films, have them developed at moderate
prices and in little time. The place I
speak of is Marsden Bros., Granville
street, Vancouver. Send your films by
mail and they will be printed at once.
A wealthy friend who prides himself
extremely on his knowledge of art, and
who has had collecting "periods" in all
nooks of Europe since his college days,
owns at the present moment a Louis
Leige drawing-room, everything is so
exactly correct tha teven a mantle clock
was banished because of a question of
its being "somewhat quinze." The curtains, however, are of heavy English
tapestry instead of French brocade. It
is to combat such enormities that I advise consuming Weiler Bros.; on so
important a detail; their assortment of
curtain brocades, chintz, etc., is simply superb, and if one is extremely particular about the correct "periods" of
one's chairs and tables, it stands to
reason that the curtain question must
also be considered.
Happy are those whose "Home Beautiful" is the prelude to a "Garden Beautiful." While most of us own in some
sort "our own four walls" and spend
no end of time and money in arranging
all therein to suit our taste, to my mind
there is nothing that delights the heart
more than a lovely well-arranged garden. Nature does much, but does it
twice as well when her efforts are assisted. Therefore in bringing M. J.
Hanry's nurseries, greenhouses, and seed
houses of Vancouver, B.C., to the notice of these enviable mortals who own
roads and perches, and other desirable
spots and plots of old Mother Earth,
I am doing them a kindness for which
they should be ever grateful.
There is a great deal of talk, lately,
small and otherwise, with regard to the
correct dress for men. However, I am
not prepared at present to launch forth
on a subject about which I must confess I know but little; it may be useful
however, for the sterner sex to know
of an interesting sale which is in progress at Walker's, the well known men's
outfitter and clothier on 74 Cordova
street, Vancouver. Exceptional advant
ages in the purchase of men's and boys'
suits, overcoats, underwear, hats, caps,
etc., are offered here, and each article
is of the latest cut and best quality.
"Happy is the bride whom the sun
shines on" is an old adage, the up-to-
date version of which is "Happy is the
bride whose gifts come from Challoner
& Mitchell's." As one of the first gift
stores in Victoria, Challoner & Mitchell has always lead its "clientele." A
favorite resort of our up-to-date requirements, it increasingly justifies itself of
it many admirers.
Can it be the present craze for brown
millinery which has brought the darker
shades of tan gloves back to favor, I
wonder? Certian it is that nowadays
gloves and hats reflect the same colorings. Brown straws, brown feathers,
and above all, brown tulle, are multiplied upon most models with any pretensions to smartness, and in very many
cases the long mousquetaire gloves accompanying the toilet are in a soft, indefinite shade of brown or a warm tan
when the latter hue can find a ghost
of an affinity with any other detail
of the costume, being white or the pale
pearly grey and buffs which have hitherto been so afshionable. Finch & Finch
carry a splendid line of long dressy
gloves in all these new popular shades.
By the way, Madge, you asked me
where I procured that perfect ice cream
we had at the garden party on Tuesday afternoon. I thought everyone in
Victoria knew that the Royal Dairy,
Fort street, is the only place for recherche  ices.

A Shipping Scandal.
A serious state of affairs was revealed
last week when the Vancouver shipping
office got some free and decidedly unpleasant advertising in a police court
case. A lumberjack, 64 years of age,
was shanghaied and placed on board a
barque now lying in the stream and
bound for Europe. He managed to get
word ashore and the result was that the
case was aired in thc police court. The
charge against Hanson was not clearly
proven and was dismissed, but the end
of the case has yet to be seen. There is
evidently something slack in the management of the Shipping Office and if all
the statements made be true it is quite
time there was a complete house-clean
ing in that branch of the local civil
service. The Deputy Shipping Master
Simms is an American and apparently
is quite unfit for the position he holds,
Since the trouble has been aired some
person has handed the Shipping Master
an order signed by Mr. R. G. Macpherson, M.P., ordering the cancellation
of Simms' commission. It is said that
this order was signed by Mr. Macpherson before he left to attend the session
at Ottawa, mis being the case is it
not in the interest of the public and his
constituents that Mr. Macpherson should
explain why ha torder has been allowed
to lie in abeyance for so long? Verily

Academy Banquet.
Mr, Kipling on Words and Works.
Sir Edward Poynter, in proposing the
toast of "Literature," coupled with the
toast the name of Mr. Rudyard Kipling, who, he said, ..ad come straight
home from South Africa, arriving only
that morning, to do them the honor of
replying to this toast.
Mr. Rudyard Kipling, in the course
of a long and interesting speech, said:
' I Here is an ancient legend which tells
us that when the first man achieved the
first noble deed he wished to explain
to his tribe what he had done, but as
soon as he began to speak he was smitten with dumbness, he lacked words,
and sat down. Then arose—according
to the story,—a "masterless" man who
had taken no part in action, had no
special virtues, and was "afflicted"—
that is the phrase—wiht the magic of
the necessary words.   He spoke, he ex
ing, or has had hopes, tha tthe miracle
may  be   repeated   again   through   him.
(Hear,  hear.)    And  why  not?    If  a
tinker in Bedford gaol, if a pamphleteer
shopkeeping in London,    if a    muzzy
Scotsman, if a German Jew, if a condemned  French   thief,  or  an  English
Admiral can be the medium for making
the necessary words, why not any many
at any timq?   And our work, which is
only concerned in the perpetuation  of
the record, sanctions that hope as kindly and just as cruelly as Nature sanctions love.  It suggests that the man with
the words shall  wait up the man of
achievement, and step by step with him
try to tell to the tribe.   All it demnads
is that the magic of every word shall be
tried  out  to  the  uttermost  by  every
means, fair and foul, that the mind of
man can suggest.    There is no room
for pity, mercy, or espect, for fear or
even for legality, between man and his
fellow-man when the record of the tribe
comes to be written.   That record must
satisfy the  keenest  and  deepest  self-
knowledge of the present, and satisfy
also the shameless curiosity of the future.   When it has done this it is literature, of which literature it will be said
in due time that it fitly represents its
age.    I say in due time, because ages,
like individuals, do not always appreciate the merits of a record that purports
to represent them . The trouble is that
we always expect just a little more out
of a thing than we put into it.   It is a
difficulty as old as literature.   A little
incident that came  within my experience a few weeks ago shows that that
difficulty is always being made by the
most unexpected people in the world.
A few weeks ago, in a land where the
magic of words is peculiar, potent, and
far-reaching,  there    was  a tribe  that
wanted rain, and the rain doctors set
about to make it.   To a certain extent
the  rain doctors  succeeded.    But  the
rain their magic brought was not a full
driving downpour boding to prosperity;
it was patchy, local, circumscribed, and
uncertain.   There were unhealthy squalls
blowing about the country and doing
damae.g   Whole districts were flooded
out by waterspouts and other districts
annoyed by trickling showers, soon dried
by the sun.   And so the tribe went to
the rain doctors, being very angry, and
they said, 'What is this rain that you
make?   You did not make rain like this
in the time of our fathers.   What have
you been doing?"   And the rain doctors
said, "We have been making our proper
wages.' Supposing you tell us what you
have been doing lately:     And the tribe
said, "Oh, our head men have been running about hunting jackals and our little people have been chasing grasshoppers!   What has that to do with your
rain-making?"    "It has  everything  to
do with it," said the rain doctors.   "Just
as long as your head men run about
hunting jackals and just as long as your
little people chase grasshoppers, just so
long will the rain fall in this manner."

One hears a good deal these days
about the up-to-dateness of women.
Since our sisters and cousins took to
stenographing and accounting they
claim to know a little about everything,
but as far as I can judge it is a very
little about business. Apropos of this
subject I heard yesterday of a young
Victoria lady, who had been studying
finance asking her employer whether the
day rate of gold affected the nitrate of
silver. I thought thc wit too fine to hide
under a bushel so give it publicity. The
young lady, like so many of her sex,
is "seeking an engagement."
Under the caption "Chamber Applications" the Victoria Times tells of quite
a pretty comedy that was enacted in
thc sheriff's office al Victoria on Thursday when two blushing little Jap girls,
fresh from chrysanthemum land, had to
appear before a stern and horrid minion
of the law ere they could be permitted
to marry the Togos of their choice.
Even Sheriff Richards, expert in most
subjects, could not be convinced that
the tiny morsels of dainty femininity
were old enough to enter the sacred
bonds of matrimony, such toll does
prosaic Occident take of poetic Orient.
Finally the aid of Mr. Justice Duff had
to be invoked, and having in his salad
days read Arnold's "Light of Asia" he
bad no scruples about discarding the
conventional demands of an effete civilization in favor of the more ideal conceptions of the land of flowers and
dreams, with the result that as we go
to press Konia Kato and Maka Gone-
mura, two lovely little bits of Japanese
cupidity, over whose heads full thirteen
summers have flown, also go to press.
A local organ bitterly repeats the
alliteration "Laurieristn and Loot."
Some people can never see a joke; it
should be "Laurierism and lute," for if
Nero fiddled while Rome burned, Laurier luted while Sifton, Cox, Preston and the Toronto gang have looted.
It is the sunny smile and the silvery
tone that have soothed and lulled the
country into security and somnolence
while the looters have done their work.
Spell it how you like, Times, it works
cither way.
At the risk of being considered rude
and even of incurring the wrath of
"Babette" by poaching on her preserves,
I cannot miss the opportunity of saying
a word in condemnation of the latest
fashion in figures, the abolition of hips.
Why the arbiter of woman's dressing
should have so decreed I know not, but
after delighting us with visions of undulating curves so easy to adjust, and ready
to conform it is now decreed, on the
authority of the Ladies' Pictorial, that
"there shall be no more hips." The hour
glass is to be exchanged for the concave ellipse and fearsome tales are in circulation of a kind of straight jacket   or
suit, which is put on warm and as it
cools gradually compresses the victim
till she is very like an Egyptian mummy.
Fashion, thy name is mud in Victoria
and Vancouver, our girls are all right
as they are, and the aesthetic observer
of healthy and radiant womanhood need
lose no sleep over this latest vagary of
Dame Fashion.
A crazy correspondent masquerading
under the nom-de-plume of "Orpheus"
undertook to complain of the Colonist's
criticism of a third-rate baritone from
Tacoma who recently sang at the Arion
Club concert. It will be conceded that
the choice of the nom-de-plume could
only be justified by the display of at
least an elementary knowledge of
things musical. He is not only no critic
but no true friend of music who bestows indiscriminate praise. That is a
species of advertising, and a very poor
one. The audience may have applauded
Mr. Hanlin, they always do that until
an encore is conceded on the principle
of getting their money's worth, but as
the critic goes in on a pass he is not
hampered by mercenary considerations

to the cavilling of ignorance.
The Development and Tourist League
is doing good practical work but it can
not afford to turn its meetings into a
Star Chamber in order to furnish the
Mayor an opportunity to scold the aldermen. The Council Chamber is at
present the licensed vaudeville house,

dirty linen of the Council to the City
Laundry, it should not be washed at

It is the worst kind of knocking.
Some times a good thing comes my
way; last week I was in Vancouver and
spent one evening at a social function.
It fell to my lot to entertain a very pretty young lady. She wore an evening
dress that was practically sleeveless and
I thought I had rarely seen such beautiful arms. But she seemed ill at ease
and finally, by way, I suppose, of explanation, said "I was vaccinated the
other day and it took beautifully. I
could almost scream, it hurts so." I
was rather non-plussed and gazed at
her faultless arm in amazement. "Why,
where were you vaccinated?" I asked.
"In Winnipeg," she said with a smile;
and the man who nearly fell of his
chair was—
Company No. I, Rocky Mountain
Rangers, will parade and drill on Monday evening. A full attendance is requested, as the company is to be inspected by the inspector-general, Lord
Aylmer, on June 19. There is room in
the company for a few likely recruits.
The headquarters of No. 3 Company
of the Rocky Mountain Rangers is at
the Drill Hall and application has been

formation of a Mounted Infantry Corps
which will also have headquarters here.

The officers of the 6th Regt. are highly

Some very good scores are being made
this year and it is a safe prediction that
the regiment will well uphold its reputation this year for rifle shooting.
The first match of the D. R. A. series
was shot off at Richmond last Saturday.
The weather conditions were most unsatisfactory and the scores were not as

J. W. M. Hall, of Boston, who is as

It has been said with regard to the'
regatta on the 24th that any English
public school from a hundred juniors
could have put up a better regatta on
Beacon Hill ponds than the youth of
this town of Victoria, 25,000 in population, put up on the most magnificent
course ever seen (by the complainant)
and under capable and efficient management. Now in substance there may be
a shadow of truth in this remark, but it
should be carefully remembered that
there are only a few schools in England
where howing is in vogue and in these
schools those who intend to take up
rowing at all are at it all the time.'
Practice goes.on for practically all the
year; the coaches are almost always
old Blues; every effort is made to give
encouragement to the crews; sluggards
ane be kicked into shape; there is a
large number to choose from. Now the
circumstances in this conutry are vastly
different. It is easy enough to gather together schoolboys who aire subject to
discipline for three months at a time as
boarders away from home; it is not so
easy for crews to arrange for practice
when the members are engaged in different business whose hours are not
always in accord. In consideration of
the difficulties which arise through this
one cause alone there is no reason for
anyone to have been dissatisfied with
the various perfarmances on the 24th.
If the crews which rowed in the regatta
were taken to England and given the
same opportunities which their English
brothers have it is safe to say that the
latter would have a hard time to keep
level with them; and the English competitors would not have to be drawn
from the juniors eitner. Discouragement such as was shown by the letter
referred to in the Colonist of the 30th

The J. B. A. A. Big Four is in son-
stant training for the annual Northwest regatta which will take place at
Nelson in July. Victoria will be represented by Austin (stroke), Kennedy,
Donaldson and Jesse. This appears to
be a well balanced four, and with careful training and constant practice ought
to make going enough to carry off the
Buchanan cup again. Their most formidable opponents will probably be the
Portland crew, whose club are expecting
great things from them. Dan Murphy,
of well-known fame, is their coach and
the crew will contain two men from
Stanford who are said to be in the front
line. However this may be, Zimmerman
and Schmid, or Zimmerman and Luders
as the case may be, who will compose
the other two, are not to be feared.
Luders is said to be too light, and both
the other two are getting rather out of
date. There is every chance for Victoria.
It was with long and serious faces
that the Mt. Pleasant lacrosse team
came home from the Royal City on
Victoria Day. No wonder. They were
given a thorough defeat by the youngsters who represented the Royal City.
When the teams lined up on the field
before the game several persons were
heard to express sorrow for the boys in
red, for they were outweighed by Mt.
Pleasan bty fully 30 per cent. It took
but five minutes of play for them to
demonstrate that the sorrow was misplaced. The final score was 12 goals to
2 with the big fellows carrying the
small figure. New Westminster has a
team of which that city can well be
proud. But two members of the old
seniors remain and there are ten fast
intermediates who have just received
promotion. They are all at the age
when they would rather practice lacrosse
than eat their meals so it is small won
der that heir condition was good. The
team has but one weak point. Digby is
a first class man at point but he is not
a star in goal although he did some
first class work on Thursday. Sandy
Gray should forget his troubles and get
back into the game. A couple of weeks
ago I expressed the opinion that the Mt.
Pleasant players were a weak aggregation. Their first game confirmed this.
The team lacks combination, some of the
players are misplaced and the majority
are not in condition. Raney, in goal,
was overworked, but gave a good account of himself. Carter was a willing
player and only lacks condition. Ritchie,
as usual, is hot-headed which spoils his
usefulness, while Vernon Green made
enemies of all Westminsterites through
his rough playing. Whether Green
plays rough or intentionally or not I cannot say, but in this game his work was
disgraceful. He laid out three men in
the first half. Of the Mt. Pleasant home
the least said the better, for it was woefully weak. Fisher was the one redeeming player. Play was rather rough, the
big men not taking their defeat very
well and starting to rough it and the
home team at once meeting their requirements. However, the two referees
watched the game very closly. In the
last quarter^ E. Murray and a Westminster player had a tussle for the ball
near the upper end of the field and the
red got it. Some youngsters along the
fence started teasing Murray and he
lost his temper and made a swipe at the
kids with his stick. Most sportsmanlike, eh what!
In Victoria the Vancouver seniors
defeated Victoria in an exhibition game
by seven goals to three and it was
due mainly to some fast work by tha
Vancouver defence that Victoria's score
was kept down. Ken Campbell is said
to have played a star game.
The auto races at Victoria lost week
were a failure. In baseball the Fern-
koods and U. of W. split even and Victoria defeated Tacoma at cricket. In
junior lacrosse the Vancouver Argos
defeated Victoria West eight goals to
Vancouver has reason to be proud of
her athletes without any endeavor to
mislead the public such as has been the
case this week where the Vancouver
daily press published the report of the
Victoria athletic meet. But tooting the
fact that the Vancouver Athletic Club
had a majority of firsts the article tried
to induce the belief that Vancouver
had won the meet. Such is not the case.
Victoria Y. M. C. A. made 24 points,
Vancouver Athletic Club 21, Phair of
Lillooet 6, Vancouver Y. M. C. A. 6
and Victoria Centrals 5. Vancouver
won five firsts, one second and four
thirds, while the Victoria Y .M. C. A.
won four firsts and six seconds.
Coach Lanagan of Stanford 'ils in
Vancouver learning some of the fine
points of Rugby football. Mr. Lanagan witnessed the Maple Leaf-Westminster lacrosse match and is of the opinion that lacrosse would allow too much
license for scraps to be suitable for his
university pets.
The 1905 financial statement of the
Vancouver lacrosse club has not yet
been made public. The supporters of
the game want to know why? Is it
because it will show that professionalism existed on the Vancouver team last
year? That fact has already been pretty well established. It is up to the officers to make that statement public
before the next game.
A third senior lacrosse team for Vancouver in 1907 is quite among the possibilities. The Brockton Point Association will foster a team next season.
But what puzzles me is that while the
B. P. A. A. A. officials are talking
simon-pure amateurism they are out
hunting backing for that team. If it is
to be a purely amateum team, why the
necessity of finances?
The first game of the B. C. I. L. A.
schedule is to be played at New Westminster this afternoon between Vancouver and  New Westminster.
Mr. A. P. Garvey, a member of the
Vancouver lacrosse team and sporting
editor of the News-Advertiser, makes
the statement in his columns that profes
sionalism does not exist on either of the
Vancouver teams. We'll take his word
for it. Perhaps that is why W. Matheson went to Cranbrook and Allan is not
out this year. President Armstrong
of the Vancouver club tells me that he
will stick out for a purely amateur team
this season.

A Crack Shot. !
(Clarence Goepel, son of W. J. Goepel

The Giddy Whirl.
The Vancouver City Council is noth-
if not regenerative; it has had a
|ng at several iniquities, or what were
emed such by the aldermen, and is
bw proposing to regulate the public
nee halls.   Licenses are to be issued
}d an age limit fixed, at which young
/sons of both sexes are permitted to
pet upon a common platform.   Nat-
jally the  local  dancing teachers do
|t favor the proposed measure, as they
nsider that there is sufficient chaper-
lage under the present system.   How-j
er, it is probable that they will have
toe the mark.   The interesting point
Ul be the fixing of the age limit.   It
ll probably be somewhere    between
felve and twenty.

Nicola Up To Date.
The Week is glad to notice in the
last issue of the Nicola Herald that arrangements are on foot for the formation of a rifle association in that dis
trict. This is on every groud a praiseworthy step, and we hope to hear of its
speedy consummation.
Ambitious Chilliwack.
News comes from Chilliwack that an
effort will shortly be made to establish
a local telephone company. The Week
hates to put a damper on any enter-
prisign movement, but it would suggest
the wisdom of studying the history of a
similar movement in Fernie, before
launching into any considerable expenditure.
Coal Galore
Everyone knows of the gigantic industry established in East Kootenay by
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company.
But few people are aware that in the
same valley other coal areas aggregating an even greater area than those
held by the pioneer company have been
exploited, and are at the present time
bing rapidly developed. From the annual report of Mr. F. J. Armstrong, the
Government Agent at Cranbrook, we
learn that the Imperial Coal Company
has 89 square miles of coal lands jon
Fording River, another company has
45 square miles on Elk River adjoining
block 4588. The Elk River Coal and
Oil Company hold 38 square miles and
a new syndicate holds 16 square miles
at the north end of block 4593. This
makes a total of 188 square miles or
120,320 acres. With this reserve in
hand it is impossible to foretell the development of the industry in the future.
Boundary Forging Ahead.
Those who predicted that the twn-
down of the West Kootenay Power and
Light Company's Bill in the Local Legislature would tend to retard operations
in the Boundary district, must already
realise that they were indulging in a
raven's croak. Every successive mail
brings additional proot that nothing can
retard the progress of this great mineral
district. The B. C. Copper smelter at
Greenwood is closing down to permit
of the extensive enlargements which
have been under way for some months
being completed. When this smelter
resumes the three additional large furnaces now being manufactured by the
Power and Mining Machinery Company of Cudahy, Wis., will be blown in,
and a new era of prosperity be entered
Crag and Canyon.
The little pamphlet published weekly at Banff under the caption "Crag and
Canyon" has entered on its seventh year
and admirably fulfills the purpose for
which it is published, viz., to make
known to the outside world the attractions of the Mainland Park. Banff
has long established its reputation as
the great show place of Canada, and
combines such a variety of splendid features that it may fairly claim to compete with any resort on the continent.
The palatial hotel of the C. P. R. is
during the summer season a scene of
continuous festivities, whilst for those
who stand in need of special treatment
Dr. Brett's santarium is unexcelled.
Satisfaction alt Grand Forks.
The Hon. R. F. Green, Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, has just
returned from a successful trip in the
Koonetays; among other places visited
was Grand Forks, where much satisfaction was expressed at the appropriation for building a new bridge across
the north fork of tne Kettle River. The
work is to be commenced on the first
of July.
A Commendable Transaction.
It is not often that a parson is a good
business man, but the Rev. C. W.
Houghton of St. Barnabas Church, New
Westminster, has made a transaction in
real estate which might well be the envy
of a prosperous layman. Some time ago
the Hon. W. Norman Bole transferred
to the church a plot of ground at the
rear of Moody Square for $1,130. This
was transferred to the rector with in
structions to realise all he could out of
it, and if possible clear the debt which
was on the rectory. Mr. Hopghton has
just effected a sale for $3,125, which
clears the debt and leaves a handsome
balance in hand. This is the same gentleman wso so successfully handled the
business of the English Church in the
early days of Fernie.
A Captain of Enterprise.
S. H. C. Miner, whose enterprise in
sticking by the Granby at a critical
period of its history gove to the province its biggest low-grade mine, is in
the Boundary looking for other copper
fields to conquer.
Anti-Tuberculosis Society.
It will gladden the heart of Dr. Fagan, who has been so indefatigable in
his efforts on behalf of consumptives,
to learn that a public meeting has been
called by Mayor Muller of Vernon for
June the 7th, to organise an Okanagan
branch of the Antituberculosis Society.

The Lyceum Theatre Company Opened its erigagenient ill the Victoria uiea-
tre last Monday with 'Wife for Wife,"
which proved a great success. The
house was full and the acting was very
favorably commented upon. On the following evening the society drama
"Friends" was played before a fair-sized
audience. This play depicts the love
affairs of a new soprano who is being
sold to the opera house manager by her
father, a drunkard, in order to secure
that his own past shall be covered up.
The friends, who combine pathos with
real humor were played by H. B. C.
Carpenter and Arthur Ashley; the acting of the former in the amusing scene
with his father, Mr. Bittner, was excellent. Mr. Covington as the heroine's
unhappy father was a piece of real good

exception of Mde. Gadski, one has to
go back to the time when Mde. Albani

Miss Dahl. If she be not, as is claimed,
Norway's representative singer, the
Northland must be very rich in vocal
artists. Miss Dahl gave no less than
twelve selections, and so enraptured was
the audience that even then they were
not satisfied, and several encores had
to be responded to. Perhaps the most
successful single selection in this lengthy
repertoire was "Allah," not because it
was by any means the most difficult, or
even the most notable achievement, but
because it furnished the opportunity 10
display to the best advantage the full
rich tones of Miss Dahl's. magnificent
voice. Her most artistic work was in
the selections from Greig, which she
rendered with a degree of finish and
true artistic feeling which has probably
never been excelled. Her sympathetic
interpretation of the great Norwegian
master was a revelation to many who
were fairly familiar with his composi-
work as he had an extremely difficult* ■££ ^V a long time the memory

When the comedy "A Message from
Mars" is presented at the Victoria
Theatre Monday and Tuesday, June 4th!
and 5th, there is every reason to believe
that local theatregoers will indicate their
desire  jn   large  numbers  to  see  this
much taiked-aixiut play, It is bem* presented with Mr. David ProEtaf ,6116 oi
the very conspicuous young actors now
before the public. Mr. Proctor has
earned the position he occupies by force
of study, strict application to his profession, and has made unusual advances
for one of his years. He is by no means
a stronger to this section of the country,
as he has made frequent transcontinental
trips in the companies of many of the
leading stars in the country. "A Message from Mars" is designated by its
author as a comedy. It is said to be
brimful of humor, creating great laughter, but at the same time it is recognized as a play that points a great moral,
and one of those kind of plays that not
only amuses and entertains, but instructs. There is a certain mystery said to prevail about it, that
adds greatly to its interest. Mr.
Proctor is assoicated with the following
players: Miss Elizabeth Valentine, Miss
Anita Rothe, Miss Catherine Cameron,
Miss Grace Chester, Miss Kate de
Becker, Msis Nesta de Becker, Henry
J. Hadfield, Cyril Young, Wallace Wid-
dicombe, Seymour Stratton, Frederick
Roland, and Sydney Mansfield. Nearly
all of these were in the original London
and New York productions.
ideal  interpreter of this  weird,  emotional composer.   Her voice is a mezzo-
soprano almost equally sound and full in
all the registers; it has lost none of its
freshness and resonance, and has a pure
melodious tone,   without   a   tinge   of
harshness.   There is no straining after
effect, and Miss Dahl appeals rather to
the cultured musician, than to the ordinary concert-goer.    She was admirably
supported   by Miss   Gina Smith, who
played two of Greig's compositions on
the piano with inimitable delicacy and
faultless style.   Her light touch and intelligent phrasing enabled her to score a
success upon the instrument scarcely in-J
terior  to  that  of  Miss  Dahl.    It  is
certain that if these gifted artists should
revisit the coast   cities, they   will be
greeted by crowded   and   enthusiastic
audiences, and it is only due   to   Mr.
Gibbons to say that Vancouver and Victoria are placed under an obligation to
him for having shown the courage to
conclude such an engagement.   The result fully confirms his judgment.

above the average and combines with
his singing a monologue, which abound
with fun. Thc society sketch by Mr.

illustrated song entitled "Sister" and the
moving pictures called Invisible Men
are mot amusing.
Next week Mr. and Mrs. Danny
Mann should draw full houses at the
Grand in the comic sketch entitled
"Mandy Hawkins" which is one of the
funniest of these amusing little skits
on human life. There will be another
troupe of acrobats who are always popular in the form of The Marco Brothers,
who perform most hazardous feats with
the utmost ease. As prestidigitateurs or
conjurers the Dalvines rank high and
should on no account be missed. Jessie'
Dale possesses a good contralto voice
and sings some good songs. From their
title the Moving Pictures should prove
even more comic than the ones which
have been on the screen lately; "Green
Goods Man" seems to suggest that there
will be a large element of humor abounding.

It is curious to observe how much
nore emotionally patriotic the colonies
re than is the Old Country. The Bank
lolidays of the latter are here supplant-
i by celebrations in honor of the late
•ueen and of the Empire. It is cer-
inly far more reasonable tha tsuch
lould be the case, provided always,
at the celebrants have some idea of
hat they are celebrating. Lord Meath,
ho has taken such a prominent part
the organization of an universal Em-
re day, to be kept by children all over
e Empire, has drawn up a unique and
teresting catechism, which should be
ught to all the children, as religiously
i the Church Catechism was in the days
; yore. In the last number of the Over-
eas Daily Mail this catechism may be
lad. It is well worth studying.
What a curious being is the human
limal. It is hard to explain exactly
'here the pleasure lies in watching
lings burn, but who is there whose soul
not filled with joy at witnessing fireworks, or rather a "pyrotechnic dis-
lay," to use the language of the really
igh class journal. Listen to the long
rawn out "Ohs" as the rocket or Ro-
lan candle leaves its abiding place to
Jar into the heavens, (I rather like
lat expression myself) and then hear
»e wail of joy expressed by the "Ahs"
loaned in a higher key, as the bomb
arsts, and a shower of different col-
red lights comes dropping slowly down
trough the firmament. Moreover there
the mild excitement in thinking that
ossibly the rocket stick may fall into

established in every town in the Province. I see that the question has been
mooted in Vancouver; may success result. But as I remark in most of my
