YMOUR NARROWS—There is no
more remarkable evidence of the
rapidity of western developments
the rapid movement of ideas. For
ty years the advocate of a bridge across
tour Narrows has been "like the voice
ne crying in the Wilderness." Less
two years ago the project began to be
:1 about by men who "saw visions ancl
ned  dreams."   A year ago  it  came
the range of  political  discussion.
months ago Premier McBride de-
that it was within the range of "prac-
xditics." Less than three months ago
couver Island Committee was formed
ost  the  scheme.    Today everybody
that it will come in the very near
The ground of belief is based upon
[ence in Mr. McBride's promise and
ct that so soon after he made that
!se a definite and important step has
taken in the purchase ol the Bute
Railway Charter by Sir William Mc-
e. Everyone familiar with local con-
s in the neighbourhood of Bute Inlet
is that while the Canadian Northern
make use of Duncan Bay as a ship-
Port to be served by Ferry from the
[and, that is only a temporary expedient
liat it pressages all-rail connection with
|iainland at an early date. The Week
ts what it stated last September, and
ts it on unquestioned authority, that
il connection will be established be-
the main transcontinental line of the
lian Northern and Victoria, by way of
our Narrows, within five years from
st January, 1912; ancl that the cost
idging the Narrows ancl the adjoining
s will be borne by the Dominion ancl
ncial  Governments  in  the  ratio  of
to one, the total cost approximating
y-one million dollars. In this connec-
it is rather amusing to read the con-
rsy being waged between the Victoria
ist and the Vancouver Sun. At first
Colonist seemed to be surprised that
ainland should be opposed to the pro-
it has however been brought to see
Vancouver in particular is so opposed
it will fight it tooth and nail to a finish,
will make no difference because it is
table, but' it will make a nice political
all before the thing is through. No-
wishes to knock Vancouver or to limit
affic but this is not a question of knock-
it is a question of Victoria coming to
own, ancl where the Vancouver Sun
s to be very far out is in declaring
Vancouver has a better harbour than
t>ria. It is not a question of the present
jition ancl capacity of either harbour,
cl the Sun would be the last to admit
Vancouver Harbour has been develop-
its capacity; on the other hand it
t to admit, if it wishes to be fair, thai
levelopment of Victoria Harbour has
y begun.   On the mater of compari-
the simple question is which harbour
ceptible of being made into the biggest
safest, ancl secondly, which harbour
ie safest approach and the best natural
ties?   Every sea-captain, every expert
ator ancl Lloyds representative, per-
the  most  independent  ancl  capable
lirity of all, unhesitatingly pronounces
our of Victoria, whilst its position, 80
nearer to the open ocean, gives it an
stionable advantage.    Whatever  in-
1 development takes place nothing can
tiate   from the  ledger  account  as il:
s   against   Vancouver   some seventy
of difficult ancl tortous passage
gh the Straits, an almost dangerous
|>ach through thc Narrows ancl a stis-
ility to fog whicii becomes more pro-
ed every year as the Terminal City
utes to grow. If these natural advant-
do not ultimately determine that Vic-
must become the chief Pacific port
Je Dominion then perhaps thc Vancou-
|5un will tell us what goes to make an
port.
THE SOOKE CONTRACT—The
past week has seen several developments in the matter of the Sooke
Lake Contract ancl although at the time of
writing the matter has not been finally disposed of there is every reason to believe
that a "via media" will be found ancl that
arrangements will be concluded which will
ensure a completion of the work by June,
1913. Tliis after all is the "desideratum,"
to get the work completed as quickly as
possible. It looks as if, in spite of many
drawbacks, this will be effected in a shorter
time than was anticipated and that would
be a redeeming feature in what has proved
to be a very vexatious matter. The Week
has no desire to complicate a discussion on
this subject whilst negotiations are still proceeding. There is plenty of room for legitimate criticism of many aspects of the subject, especially the action of the Council in
surrendering the deposit cheque, but important as these matters are in principle,
they become negligible quantities when contrasted with the urgent necessities for a
water supply. It seems to The Week that
the only question that the Council has to
decide is whether they shall hand over the
work to the lowest of the new tenderers
MacDonald & Zwoski or pay Porter
Brothers a premium of $225,000 as insurance against litigation with the Westholme
Lumber Co. As both firms are equally
competent to complete the work within the
specified time ancl are prepared to put up
substantial bonds to guarantee thi'sj the
issue is narrowed down to the question of
how much an indemnity against the Westholme Lumber Co. is worth. The Week
does not think it is worth anything like
$225,000 and therefore thinks that it would
only be fair to the ratepayers to engage the
lowest tenderers. This would seem to be
at once the shortest ancl safest road out of
the difficulty, assuming that a firm of contractors is to be employed. There is one
other method which might be adopted, and
it is well worth consideration, ancl that is
to employ a first class engineer as manager
of construction ancl to give him sole charge
of the work under the direction of the consulting engineer, Mr. Wynn Meredith. The
principal gain in this event would be that
such a manager would have every incentive
to carry out the work as economically as
possible because his remuneration would not
depend upon the amount expended, while in
the case of contractors who get a percentage on the outlay the higher the cost, the
bigger their profit. No doubt this point
will be borne in mind by the Council, and
if it should be favourably entertained the
success of the scheme would depend on securing the right man to work it out.
ESQUIMALT WATER—A goocl deal
has been said during the last few
weeks about the advisability of purchasing water from the Esquimalt Waterworks Company. No doubt the suggestion
is worth consideration but the consideration
to be of any value must take cognisance of
all sides of a many-sided question. For instance before the Water Commissioner
could avail himself of this source of supply
it is necessary to submit a by-law to the
ratepayers and obtain their sanction. The
minimum time whicii this would consume,
including the preliminaries, is two months.
Then if the by-law passed, this Esquimalt
Company would have eighteen months in
which to deliver the water; but assuming,
ancl it is a reasonable assumption, that they
would be willing to abrogate the strict provisions of the Act ancl to put their water
into the city mains at the earliest possible
moment it would take at least four months
and possibly six months to do this, because
nearly a mile of pipe line would have to
be purchased and installed, and the line carried either under or over Victoria Arm.
This would bring us up to the end of the
year and the wet season, meanwhile all the
contractors who are offering to complete the
Sooke contract undertake to have the
Hump Back reservoir in operation this fall
and as that reservoir would be capable of
collecting ancl holding 166,000,000 gallons
of water, and the pipe line therefrom to the
City could be installed before next spring,
it would look as if it was almost too late
for the city to gain any advantage by giving notice to the Esquimalt Company. If
notice had been given a year ago so that the
Esquimalt water would have been available
this summer conditions would have been
entirely different, but as matters stand today, and assuming always that the Hump
Back reservoir will be in commission next
fall, and the whole system completed by
June, 1913, it is difficult to believe that we
should be much ahead by giving notice to
the Esquimalt Company.
ROYAL MEMORIAL—It will be a
matter of widespread interest to Canadians to know that our Government has decided to erect a suitable monument in memory of the late King Edward.
It is not unlikely that this admirable precedent will be followed in many other parts
of the Empire, for no Monarch was more
widely respected or more generally beloved.
The Canadian Memorial will be as far as is
humanly possible worthy of its object ancl
to this end the Dominion Government has
invited the representative artists of Canada
to send in competitive designs and to ensure
the acceptance of the best design available
has appointed an advisory Art Council who
will judge all the competitive designs. The
hr.mes df the gentlemen constituting this
Council will carry weight throughout the
Dominion as they are all well known men
with high artistic tastes who have been prominently allied at Art Exhibitions for many
years. Their names are Sir Edmund
Walker, Toronto, Dr. Francis J. Shepherd,
Montreal and Senator Arthur Boyer, Montreal. Canada has been twitted by the leading British Journals as being inartistic ancl
lagging far behind other portions of the
Empire in creative work. This competition
will furnish an admirable opportunity to
prove that our British "quidnuncs" may
possibly for once be in the wrong. In any
event it is to be hoped that Canadian Artists
will rise to the occasion ancl they may certainly be counted on to appreciate its importance.      	
OVERSEAS CLUB-Thc Victoria
Branch of the Overseas Club is
making a splendid contribution to
the Mansion House Fund for the relief of
sufferers through the loss of the "Titanic."
Not only have individual members of the
Club canvassed the City with surprising rc:
suits, but the collecting sheets posted in the
various banks bear a splendid record. The
Week is instructed to announce that the
subscription lists will be closed on Wednesday next, the 10th instant, and on the following day the whole amount collected will
be remitted to Mr. Evelyn Wrench, the
Headquarters Secretary, for presentation at
the Mansion House. Concurrently a full
list of collectors ancl subscribers wil be published in the daily papers and The Week.
The total amount of the contributions will
be a great surprise not only to the members
of the Club but to the general public.
THE GHOST WALKS—It is very
inconsiderate of Colonel Roosevelt
to fling a bomb-shell into the political camp by publishing President Taft's letter on the subject of Reciprocity. He
might have been satisfied with throwing his
hat into the ring, but you can never tell
what the strenuous one will do. Nothing
is more certain than he has no regard for
the conventionalities. He went down one
notch when lie astonished thc world by an
unprecedented breach of good manners at
the Mansion House. He increased the astonishment when, in violation of his solemn
pledge, he entered the presidential contest
against President Taft. He went down half
a dozen notches when he began to call the
President a liar; and now he falls almost
as low as he can fall in the public estimation by publishing a "confidential" letter
from his former friend and ally. Probably
the Presidential contest is a "domestic"
concern, and no business of Canada, bat
the cool proposal of President Taft to
make Canada an "adjunct" of the States,
and the complacent endorsation of the proposal by Colonel Roosevelt will confirm Canadians in the conclusion of the electorates,
and will render it harder than ever for the
Liberal press to defend the shoddy imperialism of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
THE CITY ENGINEER—Everyone
concerned is to be congratulated on
the passing of the clouds which at
one time threatened to mar the advent of
the new City Engineer. The more one investigates the record and the achievements
of Mr. C. H. Rust the more evident it becomes that in him Victoria has secured an
engineer of eminence and proved capacity.
A man who has been in the civic service at
Toronto for thirty-five years and Chief Engineer of that city for fourteen must be a
man of mark, and must, in spite of some
failings, have made good. The Toronto
press is a unit in his favour and in regretting his departure. Many of the most influential citizens, whose names are big in
the financial world have spoken in the highest possible terms of Mr. Rust. He is still
in the prime of life ancl should be able to
give Victoria the exact service which she
requires. Of one thing the public may rest
assured that he is a big enough man to be
placed in sole charge of his Department,
and if so there may be some reasonable
ground for hoping that botching ancl incompetency will become things of the past.
FLONZALEY—The last concert of the
season, under the auspices of the
Victoria Ladies Musical Club, will
be held in the Theatre on Monday next.
Thc concert will be given by a brilliant
aggregation of musicians known as the
Flonzaley Quartette. They were assembled
in Europe by an eminent connoiseur ancl
have had a remarkable career on two Continents. They have scored successes in
such critical European cities as Berlin,
Dresden, Leipsig, Stuttgart, and London;
also in the leading American cities. The
Boston press says: "The Flonzaleys need
fear no rival in the country." The Quartette devotes itself entirely to the cultivation of chamber music and is the only European string quartette ever brought to American. Once more The Week bespeaks
a generous patronage for the Ladies' Musical Club which has done so much for music
in Victoria, and which depends on a full
house at the Flonzaley Concert to wind up
the present season on the right side of the
balance sheet.
OIL IN BRITAIN—The Colonist has
struck oil in an expert article on
"Oil in Britain." The Week has
not had the advantage in reading the original article but assuming the editorial is a
correct synopsis it must be interesting. In
the first place the article confuses "oil"
with "oil shales." There arc in Scotland oil
shales from which very small quantities of
oil have been procured for half a century,
but the quantity is practically negligible.
There is no place in the United Kingdom
where flowing oil has ever been found. It
is perhaps not fair to arrive at definite conclusions in thc absence of the original
article, but if thc geology is as defective as
the geography, which places the "Wash"
to the "North-west" of Portsmouth then it
will not constitute a very valuable contri- e
bution to the scientific discussion of an important subject. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1912
I never see May Day come round
again without a feeling of regret that
the good old-fashioned customs are
gone ancl that the official ushering in
of the early summer is allowed to
pass unnoticed. It is true that in
some, places the time-honoured gaities
are continued, and I think that New
Westminster deserves a special vote
of thanks for not neglecting one of
the prettiest legacies of the ages.
But for the most part, especially in
Europe, May Day would seem to have
taken on a semi-political aspect and is
the one day in the year when Labour,
with a capital "L," parades itself, its
aims and objects. Now I have no
quarrel with Labour, but I do think
that the First of May is a singularly
inappropriate day for such gloomy
considerations as the relations of
Capital and Labour. May Day, to my
mind, shares with Christmas the
honour of being the children's day
and ■ should therefore be a day of
happiness. One associates it with
wreaths and flowers, with smiling
faces and dancing feet, but—alas—one
seldom has such associations in this
sternly practical age, and so May
Day comes and goes and there is no
bubbling mirth to mark the transition.
* *   *
The above remarks suggest to me
that a reason for the abandonment of
much of what was good and wholesome amusement not long ago may
be found in the general,lack of spontaneity which is so prevalent a mark
of our modern civilisation. We are
so accustomed to have things done
for us, or to be told how to do things,
that wc have even forgotten how to
play. We hire skilled performers to
play our games in order that we may
watch them ancl judge of their skill;
we ride instead of walking, and use
elevators instead of stairs, and our
excuse is that in this age of specialisation and hurry no man can afford
to spend time or energy on anything
wliieh is not in his own particular
line. And even the children have
caught the infection. Reader, have
you ever watched a Maypole dance
under present conditions? It is an
education in itself. Poets and suchlike folk, perhaps even Loungers,
when they hear of a Maypole, recall
such phrases as "tripping it o'er the
lea," "winsome lasses," "bonny lads"
and similar delicate expressions of the
fantasy. But the modern Maypole
dance careth for none of these things.
It is a labour of intricate mathematics; it is as stately as the pre-historic
minuet, and as uninteresting as a
funeral. I always feel sorry for the
children who take part, for theirs is
as miserable a lot as that which falls
to the boy or girl who, when presented with a box of chocolates, is only
permitted to eat them, one at a time;
whereas, as everybody knows, the
only real way to eat chocolates is to
stuff as many into the mouth as it will
hold at once. Real pleasure can
never be taught, for when restriction
enters, pleasure flits away to more
congenial haunts.
* *   *
I want to register a formal "kick"
against the general public. There is
nothing like being comprehensive
when you want to make a complaint,
and I firmly believe that the people
of Victoria are wholly to blame for
the continuous volume of abominable rag-time music which is at present dominating every cornet, flute,
harp, sackbut, psaltery and dulcimer,
and all kinds of music throughout
thc city. No matter where you go,
except Beacon Hill Park on Sunday,
- you hear some kind of a glide being
played. It is not the fault of the orchestra; they have to play the tune
the manager calls for. It is not the
fault of the manager, he has to provide thc music that thc public want.
It is the public who are responsible;
* they pay the piper and consequently
demand the tune, and it is unfortunately  true  that  when   the  musicians
break away and play something really
good, it meets with scant applause,
whereas the latest vulgar rag-time is
received with enthusiasm. Let a
singer come on the vaudeville stage
and sing a selection from Grand
Opera, and let her be followed by a
soubrette singing an American twostep, or "glide" ditty, then the real
bent of musical Victoria will be seen.
I am not speaking, of course, of the
pillars of society, who do not hear
soubrettes, or of the aesthetes who
would faint at a comic song; I am
referring to the man on the street,
who is, after all, the real arbiter in
most things touching the public. And
it is the man in the street \yhom we
have to thank for the barbarisms
which assail us on each and every
occasion that a band strikes up a
tune. In my opinion, the modern
man  in the  street  would  be  more
suitably accommodated in the gutter.
* *   *
It is not very long ago that an
article appeared in The Week from
the pen of a prominent dog-fancier
in Victoria, urging upon all owners
of dogs the necessity of seeing well
to it that their canine property did
not annoy their neighbours by promiscuous barking. If I remember
rightly the gentleman in question was
public-spirited enough to run a fair-
sized advertisement to this effect, and
explained that his reason in so doing
was to encourage the dog industry
in the town by giving dogless individuals as little cause for complaint as
possible. I seem to be unfortunate in
having wandered to a district where
night and early morning is made
more than hideous by the howling of
dogs. There is one animal, species
not defined, who starts regularly
about 10.30 p.m. with a desultory
barking, which changes at stated intervals to the fierce watch-dog bark.
Opposite is a house where a young
puppy is chained outside about eight
o'clock every morning ancl allowed to
bark himself hoarse in a frantic effort to obtain freedom. Round the
corner is another dog with a light
tenor voice who suffers from being
chained outside all night. I suppose
that I should be thankful that there
are no cats and no poultry in the immediate neighbourhood, but it seems
to me that a full orchestra could be
no worse than a small one. It is so
thoughtlessly unreasonable of people
to keep pets which are an annoyance
to others, and surely the different
owners must know that these dogs
are a nuisance. Possibly, however, a
dog-owner is like a snorer, who can
keep a household awake and yet sleep
through his own trumpetings without
winking an eyelid. In the meantime,
I live in hopes that some day those
three dogs will get off their chains
at a moment when the dog-catcher is
passing by with his Canine Express.

I wonder whether anyone has noticed the contrast presented by the
car service of Victoria and that of
any other city in the West in one
important respect, viz., the cleanliness
and sanitariness of the cars. This
week I have been taking special notice, and I find that every car 1 have
ridden in has been carefully swept
and the floor well oiled. Moreover,
the dust has been cleared away from
the ventilators. Hinges have been
lubricated and ventilators that have
not been opened since they left the
car shops now allow the pure air of
Heaven to enter and cool the fevered
heads of the passengers. Hurrah for
the B. C. E. R.l What I should like
to know is: If this system can be
carried out in Victoria, why not
everywhere? I should like to ask
one other question: If such a complete metamorphosis can be effected
in forty-eight hours, why not before?
I take off my hat to the local management in grateful acknowledgment
of one nuisance abated, and freely
admit that the last thing that would
occur to me is that in this instance
there is any possible connection between "cause" and "effect," or that
once more the public have to thank
the

It's Really Funny
How some people when ordering a beverage, beer
for instance, just ask for "beer," omitting the most
important point, namely: "LEMP'S," for Lemp's
Beer is a wholesome and delicious beverage, made
from pure malt and hops. Always sold in bottles, a
beer full of SPARKLE and invigorating qualities,
making it unexcelled for table use. Order a supply
for home use from your dealer—but be sure and
ask for "LEMP'S." Drink Lemp's at your hotel,
club, bar or cafe.

essful return visit.
The Empress Theatre
Virgil Holmes and Miss Mar-
•iiley, who made such a hit here
very long ago, are again visit-
e Empress Theatre and are de-
ighting the audiences with their fine
singing. It is indeed a treat to hear
such vocalists as these two artists,
who are in the front rank of vaudeville singers and it is a most pleasant
change to hear real voices and real
music in place of the average ill-produced imitation howling rag-time
"glides." Holmes & Riley will always
be assured of a hearty welcome in
Victoria. Lawton is a juggler with
novelties to portray, and his work
with heavy cannon-balls is excellent.
Willard, the man who grows, is an
extraordinary instance of the freaks
whicii Nature sometimes perpetrates.
The closing act by Mr. and Mrs.
Voelker is one of the most musical
that has  visited  Victoria   vaudeville.
The Majestic Theatre
"The Motion Picture man in the
Dark Continent" is a wonderfully
pretty and effective film, showing
wild life in the jungle and bush. This
is a coloured film and represents a
vast expense both of time and money,
but it is well worth it. This picture
was unreeled during the middle of
the week.
Romano's Theatre
Romano's has been running the
usual goocl stuff on Government
Street. There has been plenty of
drama and comedy, and one picture
in particular, "The Guilty Baby,"
combined the best features of both.
Next week, on May 6 and 7, will ue
seen views dealing with the late
wreck of the Titanic.
The Crystal Theatre
Little & Allen have been the star
vaudeville performers this week at
the Crystal and their performance
has been bringing the house down.
Wednesday night, being amateur
night, was productive of an extra big
house, ancl the lobby was crowded
with eager patrons. The pictures
shown have been first-class and the
popularity of the Crystal seems assured.
The Flonzaley Quartette
In its issue for April 6th, "The
Outlook" has an intelligent article on
American Music, in which it lauds the
efforts that are being made throughout the United States to familiarize
the people with the best class of
music as interpreted by the most talented artists. This is the kind of work
which the Victoria Ladies' Musical
Club is doing in our own city today
and the fact that they are able to
close their season with a presentation
of the Flonzaley Quartette argues
that they have been true to their determination to offer only the best to
the citizens of Victoria. Wherever
they have appeared thc members of
this quartette have been received with
unbounded enthusiasm and even if a
liberal discount were allowed on the
press notices which have appeared in
every city where they have played,
their success has been tremendous.
An interesting item in connection
with this musical combination is the
fact that two Stradivarius violins,
two Guadigninis and one Testori are
the instruments used in their recitals.
The Flonzaley Quartette will appear
at the Victoria Theatre on Monday,
May 6th, and their reputation should
ensure a packed house.
May Robson
May Robson is an actress of exceptional ability and in her new play,
"A Night Out," of which she is coauthor, she has every opportunity to
develop that fund of clean cut humour
and that world of brilliant* and thrilling pathos which has made her famous. It is a rare quality and but
few actresses possess it to a convincing degree. She will impersonate a
young-old woman , broad-minded,
free from affectation and possessing
a keen sense of humour, nothing absurd or ridiculous escapes her attention, and being fond of excitement as
a mild stimulant, she persuades her
two grandsons whom she adores, in
to all sorts of extravange, and a visit
to a restaurant of shady character for
dinner isjhe climax of her adventure.
Of course, Granmum, as she is called
by the family, is not aware of the
character of the place, and complacently waits for a rather elaborate
dinner. Presently, however, the police raid the restaurant and all is excitement with a nervous desire to be
somewhere else * a hurry. Granmum
is hustled into the street, not politely
but vigorously, hence her disheveled
appearance later. Arriving home they
find the house in darkness and the
doors locked, and the only means of
entering the house is by climbing up
the ivy in front of the house to an
open window. This is done by Granmum and the boys. This adventure
leads to an explanation. The boys
are ambiguous and Granmum sustains them. Following this incident,
comes the distressing report that a
bond has been taken from Granmum'?
locker in the safety deposit vault, and
a detective is immediately put on the
case.. The arrival of the policeman
with a brooch belonging to Granmum that she lost in the restaurant
during the excitement, produces consternation and a very humorous situation. From this juncture the story
moves rapidly, in which love and devotion of the young people is sustained by the influence of the jolly,
whole-souled Granmum. At the Victoria Theatre, Tuesday, May 7*th.
The First of all Successful Plays on
Woman Suffrage
"Whenever a manuscript aboul
woman suffrage comes into my office
I throw it aside the moment 1 recognize its subject," said a New York
manager the other day. "Everybody
is writing them; but the subject is
as impossible for the stage as capital
and labour. Woman suffrage presents one insuperable difficulty, if
the author does not take sides his
play has no conclusion; if he does
take sides he offends at least half of
his audience." All of which sounds
logical but scarcely squares with what
has actually happened. One of the
principal successes in London this
season was Alfred Sutro's comedy,
"The Perplexed Husband." A. B.
Walkley, critic of the London Times,
declared Mr. Sutro's work "amusing,
stimulating, thoughtful and interesting." Ancl yet "The Perplexed Husband" is all about woman's rights.
Charles Frohman is going to produce
the play in America next season.
Apparently Mr. Sutro has evolved a
comedy with a splendidly timely
thesis out of which naturally grows
sprightly action. Thomas Felling, a
tea merchant, has returned home to
find his attractive young wife converted to suffragette-ism. She has
domiciled in the house a very theoretical philosopher professor and a lady
firebrand. The wife has been to see
an Ibsen play. She feels herself another Nora in "A Doll's House," and
poor Mr. Pelling is aghast. On the
advice, however, of a practical married sister, instead of combating the
craze, Mr. Pelling pretends to fall in
with it and introduces into the house
a very charming young woman with
a Greek soul, who he says needs converting also.    Without  following all

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
"Trifles Light as
Air"
Written Specially for The Week
by "Criticus"
A great mind can always afford to
consider trifles. It is only the person of mediocre intellect who can
not see fine distinctions in things material or abstract. Not every one in
Victoria is capable of discerning the
difference between "I will drown and
nobody shall save me," and "I shall
drown and nobody will save me," and
yet there is all .the difference in the
world. The former might be said by
a determined suicide whilst the latter
is a cry of fear. Accuracy of language and even spelling has its benefits and a leading medical man in Victoria tells an amusing story of a patient coming, with almost breathless
haste, to pay his account immediately
following its receipt—whilst the ink
was still warm in fact—simply because the patient's name was correctly spelt which it seems did not always happen—and another instance
comes to mind where a year's subscription was joyfully paid to the B.
C. Agricultural Journal simply because that journal spelt the name of
thc flourishing town of Duncan properly (that is without any "s" at the
end of it.
Many deviations from the correct
use of words, apart from spelling are
found and there is generally a reason
for these departures although it is not
always apparent. A people who are
not naturally refined, that is, born refined, with cumulative culture of
many generations in their composition will.of course be aware of their
weakness and the tendency to coarseness of expression, and in their commendable ambition to conceal this will
rush to the other extreme and become guilty of the indelicacy of over-
delicacy and so our English language
is spoilt to suit this spurious refinement and mock modesty, and good
plain serviceable words are shunned
by reason of some hidden meaning
attached to them by these over-refined
coarse people. This has taken place
and is accepted without question or
objection by other "genteel" coarse
people.
The London Journal, "The World,"
was started by the late Mr. Labouchere with the plain descriptive title,
"A Journal for Men and Women."
This would not do for Victoria—it
would havc to be a Journal for "Gents
and Ladies."
Women of rank and birth and real
position which needs no spurious aids
—no props—are heard to talk about
the bay mare, the Jersey bull or the
Pointer bitch, but, in shame be it said,
we havc drifted into the coarsest indelicacy of all which is over-delicacy
and Victoria "Ladies" must substitute "female horse" for mare, the
"gentleman cow" for bull, and the
"lady dog" for bitch, and so it goes
on right through our vocabulary. Let
us have done with such snobbish
"gcnteclness" and speak English
without fear.
The newspapers do not give us
much help—they are perhaps not
written, with the idea of serving the
purpose of a lesson in finished cultivated English for the people to be
guided by — the papers are read
enough to use up a great deal of the
reading time folk have and this is the
sort of English frequently to bc found,
"It is 'up to' the Government to find
out where the country is 'at." "The
price paid was 'in the neighbourhood'
of a million dollars." What nonsense! How far off was it—one mile
away or only a block? It will take
place "in the near future"—why not
"soon," and  so it goes on  again.
There are three Noahs—to wit:
Noah, Noah Shakespeare and Noah
Webster, but the greatest of these is
Webster. Unfortunately his influence on our retaining our correct
pronunciation of English is nullified
by the sale of cheap American dictionaries, preaching wrong accent and
often, wrong spelling.
The professional florist's chrysanthemum has a lesson. One huge
bloom on a stalk is a strange and
wonderful thing. It is produced by
forcing all the life and nature of the
plant into one shoot and nipping off
all side branches and flowers. Apply
this simile to our people and you find
the one blossom—the dollar bloom,
and the dollar bloom is very fine and
large and people come and gape at it
and fancy it is beautiful but some
would like to see a few—only a few—
of the nipped off flowers and one of
these is loved and is called correct
English.
Correspondence
THE   NAVAL   AND   MILITARY
EMIGRATION LEAGUE
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—I beg to enclose herewith copy of an Appeal, issued by this
League, which has been signed by the
Right Hon. Earl Grey, late Governor-General of the Dominion of Canada, the Duke of Bedford, Field-
Marshal Lord Grenfell, and myself.
I am also enclosing copies of a report issued last year and of an interim report just issued. These will
give you some idea of the useful
Imperial and philthropic work in
which which the League is engaged,
and from them you will see that every
care is taken in the selection of suitable men and that the League is
neither a charitable institution nor a
commercial agency. We have at present applications from large numbers
of ex-service men of good character
and physique, who are unable to find
permanent employment at home and
are anxious to start life in the Oversea Dominions, where openings can
be found for them.
The objects of the League should
commend themselves, I think, to all
who are interested in the welfare of
the men who have served and, in
many instances, suffered for the Empire, but to none more than to our
kindred across the seas.
I am, therefore, asking you to give
such publicity to our Appeal and to
the work of the League as may
arouse the interest of your readers in
a movement, from whicli the Dominions, as well as, if not more than, the
Mother Country, will profit.
As you will notice, an Overseas
organization has been formed; but
this part of our work is susceptible
of considerable development, wliieh
will, however, depend very largely upon the practical interest which the
Press, represented by such papers as
yours, takes in  the subject.
On behalf of the Council, I am,
Yours faithfully,
RONALD B. LANE,
Chairman.
P. S.—The British Columbia representative on the Committee is Arthur
E. Hepburn, Esq., of Vancouver.
Appeal for Our Ex-Service Men
The Naval and Military Emigration League is in pressing need of
funds, to carry on its Imperial and
philanthropic work.
Thc Patron of the League is Field-
Marshal H.R.H. The Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, K.G., K.T.,
K.P., &c, who is also President of its
Canadian Branch. The President of
the League is Field-Marshal The Rt.
Hon. Earl Roberts, V.C.. K.G., &c.
The main objects of the League are
to find openings in His Majesty's
Dominions Overseas for ex-service
men, and to advance, by way of a
loan, the amount necessary for tlieir
emigration, arrangements for the repayment of which arc made through
the Oversea Representatives of the
League. The men to whom such advances are made must be of good
character and physique, must show
aptitude for Colonial life, and must be
unable to obtain permanent employment at home.
The condition    of many    of these
men at present is deplorable, and to
help them to make a new start in life
is an urgent public duty.
Already a large number of men,
through the advice and assistance
which the League has been able to
render, have emigrated to Canada,
Australia, New Zealand and South
Africa to their own advantage and
to that of the countries to which they
have gone. The work which has thus
been done by the League has gained
the appreciation of the Governments
of the Dominions and other Oversea
Authorities, who are affording special
facilities to those who emigrate under its auspices. To continue this
work and to meet the demands of the
hundreds of applicants who are seeking the aid of the League, generous
support is imperatively required. An
appeal for financial help is, therefore,
made to all who are interested in the
welfare of our ex-Soldiers and ex-
Sailors, and who desire to encourage
men of British blood to settle in His
Majesty's Dominions, in preference to
foreign countries.
In making this appeal the League
desires it to be understood that it
does not advocate indiscriminate
emigration and only advises it in the
case of men who are unable to find
suitable employment at home.

INTERIM  REPORT
July ist, 1911, to February 29th, 1912
Men Emigrated
1. The number of men who emigrated ' under the auspices' of the
League during the above period was
173, of whom 76 went to Australia, 2
to New Zealand, 1 to South Africa,
and 94 to Canada, all of whom obtained employment, directly or indirectly, through the various overseas
committees and representatives appointed by the League. Forty to
fifty more men are emigrating during
the next few weeks.
The total number (exclusive of
wives and families) sent out since
the active formation of* the League,
about two years ago, will be nearly
500. In arranging for the emigration
of the men, every possible facility has
been afforded by the Canadian Emigration Department, and by the various Australian Government Agencies, in London. Through these
agencies, special introductions are often obtained, to the advantage of the
emigrants, from many of whom letters have been received expressing
the thanks of the writers for the services rendered by the League and by
its Canadian committees (especially
those in Toronto and Vancouver),
and by the British Immigration
League in Australia.
Inquiries and Applications
2. The number of inquiries dealt
with by correspondence and interviews, during the past eight months,
averaged over 200 per week, or from
6,000 to 7,000 in all. Many of the
inquirers are in urgent need of help
to enable them to emigrate, but, owing to the lack of funds, the League
is,- at present, unable to make the
necessary advances.
Openings Overseas
3. There are excellent openings for
large numbers of ex-Service men in
our Oversea Dominions, and the various Governments are prepared to
give special facilities to carefully selected men sent out under the auspices of the League, which is being
recognised, both at home and overseas, as thc established association for
the emigration of ex-Service men.
Applications have been received
from Australia for 300 single men,
towards whose passages £6 each will
be provided out of a- fund raised for
the purpose in Sydney, and from Canada for 150 time-expired men, whose
fares will be paid by the Dominion
Government. Employment for these
men has been guaranteed at current
rates of wages and pay. To enable
the League to avail itself of the Australian offer, funds must be provided,
for a number of needy cases, in order
to advance the balance of fare (£10)
and landing money (£2  5s.).
Leaflet for War Office
4. The League is authorised by the
War Office to issue a Leaflet drawing
the attention of "Army Pensioners
contemplating Emigration" to the objects of the League.
Regimental and other Associations
5. In addition to securing the cooperation of a number of Regimental
Associations and other bodies interested in ex-Service men at home, the
League has been promised aid by the
Victoria League and the Overseas
Club through their various branches
and correspondents in Australia and
Canada in looking after the men on
their arrival overseas, by co-operation
with the various committees appointed by this League. The League is
also in correspondence with the V«t-
erans' Brigade of Canada, the Imperial Home Re-Union of Canada, and
other Oversea Associations, who are
prepared to further, in every possible
way, the work of the League.
Canadian Branch
6. Since the issue of the last report,
Mr. J. S. Dennis, assistant to the
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, has become a Vice-President
of the Canadian Branch of the
League, and Mr. A. B. Wilmot, Government Superintendent of Immigration, St. John, New Brunswick, has
undertaken to represent the League
in that Province.
British Soldiers in India
7. The Rev. H. C. Martin, Secretary of the Royal Army Temperance
Association, Simla, who, with Major
W. J. Ottley, of Sialkot, represents
the Lepgue in India, reports that he
has dealt with one or two suggestions
made by the League, and that the
way is now rendered more easy for
time-expired men, desiring to emigrate, to secure free passages to Australia, and that, although Reservists
are not eligible for passages to British Colonies at Government expense,
there is nothing to prevent them from
going to Australia or other Oversea
Dominions direct, at their own expense, provided they secure the previous sanction of the War Office.
Concluding Note
8. Every possible care is taken that
only men of good character and physique, and who are willing and able
to work, are sent out under the auspices of this League. And all monies
advanced towards the emigration of
men in need of assistance are required
to be repaid, by arrangement with
the oversea, representatives of the
League.

P. R. J. H., beg to thank you most
gratefully for your kind offer of help
in their campaign for the new hospital.

ARTISTS
A beautiful picture is like a Society woman.
Both are the cleverest forms of hand-painting.
Both also require to be touched up from
time to time to make them last. The value
of a work of art is usually in inverse ratio
to its youth. Unlike a girl, the older it becomes thc more it is sought after. All real
artists should possess the artistic temperament,
which means a dislike of regular work and
a disinclination to cold water. Many of our
great academicians are believed to have started life  as  artists.

various districts.   No street cars are being operated in Point Grey,
this dispute being still in the courts.   The government is much interested in this district, since it still owns considerable land therein, and
in Point Grey is the site of the proposed university.   The principal
difference between the government and the Company is in relation to
the franchise in D. L. 301 and in Hastings townsite, both of which are
now part of Vancouver city.   The company was granted perpetual
franchises in these districts, as Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-general,
announced on the election platform, because no objection was made by
ratepayers when application was made for same.   Ratepayers afterwards contended they had no opportunity to object, ancl opposed the

franchise very strenuously.     Until  this opposition  was made the
government was not aware that it had granted the company a perpetual
franchise.   Then it limited the franchise to 21 years, but the company
holds that the original franchise is still valid.

Satisfactory Adjustment Somewhat Difficult
In addition, there is difference of opinion in regard to the company's franchise in South Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, and
even in North Vancouver.   This week, a committee of North Vancouver district aldermen are inspecting the agreement to see if the
franchise still holds good there.   This point was brought before the
members of the legislature recently when West Vancouver was apply

franchise to North Vancouver was voided because the company failed
to carry out the contract, then permission would be given to grant a
franchise to another company.
A disappointed investor asked The Monetary Times if there was
not a duty devolving on the government in relation to the promotion
of companies which hardly ever or never returned the shareholders
anything.   He remarked that on the coast, where there is prosperity,
promoters frequently secured a moderate amount of money from
several people, a company then being formed and even works established, and while the company may be deeply in debt, the promoters
revel in luxury.   Just what the government should do he did not say,
neither did he suggest any action on the part of the shareholders who
ought to be able to do something themselves.

A PLEA FOR A TREE
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—On the land selected at North
Saanich for the Experimental Farm is
a good deal of bush which must unfortunately be cleared away. In one
corner close to the main East Saanich
Road is a splendid dogwood tree, and
it is for the preservation of this tree
that I make this appeal. The tree
stands only a few yards from the road
on a little knoll, quite by itself and
clear of all brush and undergrowth.
It is some 50 or 60 feet high, with a
trunk of over one foot in diameter
and is well shaped. At present it is
covered with a mass of budding
flowers, the large bracts which surround the flowers proper and which
will soon he dazzling white are a
shimmering golden green looking in
the sunlight like plates of some beautiful unknown metal.
In clearing the land there can be
no necessity for removing this tree
whicli has for years, and which will
for .years yet to come form an object
of interest to wayfarers and a delight
to the many tourists who pass along
this much frequented road.
There are no doubt plenty of dogwood trees still to be found in the
bush, but along the highways they
are getting scarcer and scarcer as the
years roll by. Though I am pretty
well acquainted with the country
raund about Victoria and its beautiful
trees I do not know of a finer specimen of the dogwood than this -one,
and therefore I hope that this plea
for its life may reach the eyes and
find favour in the hearts of those in
whose hands its fate lies.
I am, etc.,

HARBOR MOTTO
Mayne Island, May 1, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—In two local papers it is proposed to erect a motto at the entrance of Victoria Harbour. Victoria
is not only a seaport town but the
capital of the province and I would
suggest that a motto of broader appliance would be niore appropriate.
"Be British," the last order of a brave
seaman,  might be  considered.
E. MAUDE.
Dominion & Provincial News
Victoria, B.C., 21st April, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—Do you not think that in all
the various reports and examinations
so far given in the public press, the
real and main reasons for the awful
catastrophe, the wreck of the Titanic,
are being overlooked or ignored, perhaps deliberately. In the first place
the responsibility of the British Government for the disgraceful state of
the law as regards the carriage and
safety of passengers, and the outstanding fact that on board the
Titanic was the managing director,
who, having been warned of the vicinity of ice, permitted such a speed
as twenty-four miles an hour to be
continued and did not give immediate
orders for the speed to be slowed
down. It is twaddle to say "Accidents will happen at sea." That accident had no right to happen. How
is it that the Cunard company have
had no catastrophes, because human
life comes first in their estimation
and not commercial greed which is
at the bottom of all these catastrophes, with scarcely an exception.
Such is the opinion of a
SCOTSMAN.
ST. GEORGE'S DAY
Victoria, 23 April, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—On Tuesday, April 23; yes, it
is very astonishing how few Englishmen realize that this day of all
days is their day. When I say their
day, I mean to say, that this is the
day of their Patron Saint, St. George.
I wonder how many of you Englishmen saw the flag of St. George flying
from thc city hall, stopped to think,
also to feel proud of that same flag
which is so dear to us, being as it is,
the true flag of our nation, also thc
first flag to fly over the first settlements of the English in Canada.

To Lay Out Trail to the Coal Fields
President W. R. Smith of the Citizens' Association, Stewart, is in receipt of a letter from William. Man-
son, member-elect for the Skeena district, stating that C. J. Gillingham,
road superintendent, had been instructed to make a preliminary survey of the proposed Stewart-Groundhog trail, with a view to ascertaining route and cost of construction.
An additional appropriation will have
to 'be secured to carry the trail east
from the Bear river-Naas trail for
which $22,000 has been allocated. The
building of the trail from the
Groundhog anthracite coal basin to
seaboard at Stewart will effect a
shorter route to the coal fields and
build up a substantial and ever-increasing trade for this port.
Crossing the Fraser
The ice bridge over the Fraser became unsafe for traffic last Monday, a
fact demonstrated by a steer breaking
through while crossing to this side,
morning another animal was lost in
the same manner, and in the afternoon the water cleared out a wide
channel from the bend above the hospital to the junction with the Quesnel.
Passengers and mail arriving that
evening from the north had to be
transferred in canoes.
North Fork
Reports from North Fork are to
the effect that the numerous parties
engaged in placer mining in that vicinity are doing exceptionally well
this season.
New Contracts on K. V.
Three more contracts on the Kettle
Valley railway were let this week,
Clyde H. Williams & Co. secured six
miles; Milligan, Dussault & Co., nine
miles, and Porter & Connely ten
miles. These contracts are all for
the extension of the line west of
Carmi, and will bring the new line
within fifteen miles of the summit.
The contractors were in Grand Forks
on Monday making financial arrangements for the carrying on of the
work, also for the necessary supplies
required in the different camps.
Good Money in Trapping
Geo. P. Crandell (Sunny Jim), who
left Grand Forks the second week of
last month on his return trip to his
trapping grounds up the north fork
of Kettle river, returned to the city
on Monday, bringing down with him
five ermine, five beaver, three mink,
five lynx and twelve martin skins, as
well as three big horn owls, upon the
latter of which the government pay a
bounty of $2 each. The skins are all
in excellent condition and are worth
somewhat over $400. When it is considered that Mr. Crandell trapped
only about a month, $400 is pretty
good returns for the labor entailed in
the securing of the skins.

New Branch
section of the island lying south of
the "Divide," including the districts
of Cranberry Marsh, Beaver Point,
Isabella Point and Bttrgoyne Valley.
The ports of call, served well by the
C. P. R. steamboat "Joan," are Fulford Harbour (from which the branch
of the League takes its name of The
Fulford Harbour Branch of the V. I.
Development League), Beaver Point,
Burgoyne, Musgrave's and Lyonesse.
The progress of this district was retarded last year by the loss of the
"Iroquois," with the consequent disorganization of thc means of communication, so land has not advanced
in price as in other sections, and the
district is not as well known as its
contiguity to Victoria would warrant.
Whilst it is a district of good farming land, it is certainly destined to
become the site of the summer homes
of city residents, for which it is particularly adapted, the calm waters of
its harbours offering safe boating and
canoeing, combined with good fishing, despite the frequent poaching of
Fulford Harbour by fishermen with
Seine nets, whilst for good sport with
gun as well as rod, probably no district so near Victoria is its equal.
Messrs. W. J. L. Hamilton, J.P., and
C. J. Soule are respectively president
and secretary of this branch, and are
now engaged in collecting particulars
of all properties in the market, as
they find many would-be purchasers
have failed to secure what they want
for lack of the necessary information.
Loss of the Titanic
w branch of the Vancouver
Development League has just
>rmed at the south end of Salt
Island. This comprises all that
The Overseas Club has received a
card of acknowledgment from the
White Star Line in reference to the
Resolution passed at the last meeting
of the Club which was referred to in
the daily press but not quoted in extenso. The Resolution reads as follows:
"That the Victoria Branch of the
Overseas Club wishes to place on record its overwhelming sense of sor
row at the catastrophe involved in the
wreck of the Titanic and the loss of
so many precious lives and desires to
express its profound sympathy with
the sorrowing relatives and friends in
their hour of bereavement.'
The Card of acknowledgment reads
as follows:—
"The White Star Line most gratefully acknowledges the expression of
your deep sympathy and shares with
you profound sorrow for all to whom
the loss of the S.S. 'Titanic' has
brought great bereavement."
Gossip from the Stalls

the developments, it may be said that
the lady with the Greek soul eventually pairs off in a very quaint scene
with the white souled professor who
is known as "the master." The wife
realizes her folly, and deserted by
her teacher, falls into her husband's
arms. In other words, the light of
a little humour is shed upon the perplexing subject of woman suffrage
and much wisdom is gleaned. Perhaps that is the fly in the amber of
American-made plays on the same
subject; that they take themselves
and their subject too seriously.

All the comforts of home are here for you when the summer grows hot, but you
want to make your selections now, and be prepared. Bare walls and plain floors
do not add pleasure to the summer sojourn. It's easy to give a wall fresh charm
by gracing it with a colorful picture, or to decorate a floor by overspreading it
with a pretty rug. An easy chair for the lawn or porch is not only picturesque
but a positive necessity. Matting, too, is an essential. No dweller out of town
desiring comfort can disregard this, and so the Weiler Bros, store with its great,

"The Game's the Thing"
"Play the Game"—"Keep your Eye on the Ball"
By C. B. S.
The climate and agricultural prospects of British Columbia make it' a
land for settlement for all classes
from the Old Country in the future
apart from any mineral discoveries
that may or may not come about.
Interest in the Old Country is at present deeply aroused to the potentialities of the Province and Vancouver
Island enjoys her fair share of that
interest. Among the emigrants filtering through to this "Ultima Thule"
a goodly proportion want an opportunity of looking round to see how
the land lies, but their purse extends
little further than the legal minimum
for a settler's assets and when he has
been a couple of months in the Island
or not even beyond the terminal city
he finds he has little or nothing left.
Unfortunately foreign labour agencies—German, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish and Polish—seem to
be more efficiently worked and get
labour for their respective countrymen than true British, and if it is to
be a white man's country surely the
welfare of our own kith and kin require preference to foreign aliens.
Then, too, the astute American finds
a way of gaining employ—is it not
possible for the powers that be to enquire into and remedy the cause that
is bringing about the effect. Recent
[Revolution in the shape of the coal
strike at home has started an inquiry
from which many valuable lessons
will be taken to heart and adjustments peacefully evolved without
doubt; surely an advanced form of
Government such as we have out here
need not lull itself to sleep simply because there is practically no
opposition to keep it awake. The
confidence which the late Government very justly earned for itself has
resulted in its re-election by a very
one-sided majority, the voters being
quite content to leave well alone.
This has, however, unfortunately
killed that virtue of party government, whereby, with a strong opposi-
; tion, the due sense of proportion is
kept up: it may lose its level, and,
that otherwise smooth pool renders
itself liable to become ruffled with a
sudden splash. Sudden splashes stir
up mud besides causing ripples, so it
is incumbent on a one-sided government to provide against unemployment.
A proper inquiry into the labour
question will be the natural death of
the I. W. VV. movement, the real existence of which is due to the high
price paid to white labour and the
continued influx of coloured labour—
black as well as yellow. Advertising a country has its limits even from
an industrial point of view and photographs form a very valuable adjunct to print, these attractive agencies have their time as well as open
purse limits, but it must be remembered the worm will turn and as the
late Mark Twain once said the mosquito inside the curtain is worth ten
thousand outside. We hear and talk
about the numbers of people who
come from the Old Country and what
they are disposed to pay for bits of
British Columbia rock, soil and
slough; they take the rough with the
smooth and buy their experiences
with as goodly a smile as the alien,
but they don't care about being* bled
whilst the alien gets the plums of
employ because he is bloodless. The
home-returned would-be settler can
do as much harm and cause as much
irritation to the welfare of British
Columbia as the single mosquito just
referred to. tt is well worth while
for the powers that be to put their
heads together and solve the problem
of meeting the home settler half way
before he finds that the game is not
worth the candle and turns his eyes
towards other climes. If a little
bleeding has to be endured let thc
result of the hardships be "only a
scratch," and soon healed. No one
will object to that, in fact it is only
the wholesome result of a hard day's
toil or sport and it does not do to
make things too smooth for the new
arrival; but give him that hunting
chance. Only the absolute waster
will then be left and he will soon
find he must shift for himself and, if
he does no harm after all as no one
listens to him, his statements are accepted at their proper valuation.
There is a silver lining to every
cloud and though the atmosphere
has recently been darkened by a grim
ship-wreck, our home papers bring us
news of the cordial reception of the
doings on French soil tending to cement more closely than ever that entente cordiale which times its birth
with the dawn of the present century
and may it have a lasting interest to
British and French Canadians and extend to this province as much as to
Quebec.
The Uplands
There are sub-divisions and subdivisions but of all the subdivisions
which have been offered to the public in the neighbourhood the Uplands
is easily the most important, the
most extensive and the most attractive. It is in reality a magnificent
natural park stretching along the
shores of Cadboro Bay, rising with
a gentle slope from the water edge
to the main highway, running from
Victoria to the North. It is dotted
with the finest collection of oak trees
in the neighbourhood of the Capital
City. From any point on the estate
one looks across the blue waters of
the Straits of Georgia to the Olympics on the right, to the snow-clad
Mount Baker in the glimmering forefront, and to the Islands of the Straits
on the left. There is no finer natural
panorama anywhere, to sit in the Uplands Park on a fine summer day and
watch hundreds of yachts and
launches moving on the placid waters
of the Straits, or the great ocean
liners passing "like painted ships upon a painted sea," is a sight never to
be forgotten. Whatever other advantages the Uplands estate might
have it possesses that of scenic beauty in the highest degree. The owners
have wisely determined that in all
their dealings with the estate they
will respect nature's work. Nothing
has been done to mar the natural
beauty of Uplands. There are no
small lots, no mean houses, no unsightly heaps; the order of the day
is large lots, handsome dwellings ancl
up-to-date equipment. If one may
borrow a phrase the spirit of altruism prevails for every lot is laid out
with full respect for its neighbours.
The result is a beautiful and harmonious whole, lt is hardly necessary to
say that sanitariness is a distinctive
feature of the lay-out of this fine property. For years the knowing ones
have predicted that Cadboro Bay
would become the great rallying point
of those who wish to live on the
waterfront and yet be screened from
the. winds which at times break
across the Straits. This dual advantage is realized at Cadboro Bay. A
circumstance emphasized by its recent selection as the headquarters of
the Victoria Royal Yacht Club.
Victoria Camera Club
Following the example of Toronto
and Winnipeg, Victoria is to have a
club devoted to amateur photography.
It is well known that there are many
ladies and gentlemen resident in the
city who have a remarkable talent in
this direction, and many more whose
interest and love for the art would be
greatly fostered by association with,
and the help of, other enthusiasts.
Already an excellent series of informal lectures has been arranged for
the winter months, and it is proposed
to inaugurate a systematic collection
of record photographs embracing the
whole of Vancouver Island, which, in
the natural course of events will become of great value. Pictures of
some of our newer city streets taken
before and after the march of local
improvements should be very interesting. Excursions to the lesser frequented local beauty spots will be
held each week throughout the summer and autumn, and the fruits thereof displayed at an exhibition to be
held in the early spring. A representative collection will probably be
sent to the Royal Photographic Society's exhibition in London, and
should prove a valuable factor in the
campaign for making British Columbia better known in the Old Country
and elsewhere. The Acting Hon. Secretary will be glad to answer any enquiries addressed to him at Box 1367.
