On  May  3rd  the  Victoria Daily Times published a front page half-
column news item under
"DISCOURAGE OVER-
On January 27, 1906, and
m subsequent dates The Week published
series of educational articles on the vital
■pic of "Banking and Currency " in Vic-
ria.; The connection between the Times
Irticle and The Week's campaign may not
ie obvious to everybody, but to the man
hind the scenes the connection is clear
|nd easily traced.
To the uninitiated we had better explain.;   The Times' article, was merely
hat is termed in polite circles—inspired
ews;   but what our cousins across the
rder have, with their usual bluntness,
jntitled "Tainted News"; published sole-
for the purpose of hoodwinking the
usiness men of Victoria as'to the real
otives of the selfish underhand policy of
[he Eastern bankers who, like leeches, are
fucking the financial life-blood of Victoria
ind giving nothing in return.   We exon-
rate the Times from any direct compli-
iity in these backstairs' methods, but we
ink they must now regret having per-
itted their columns to be used for such
purpose, and being led astray by the
pecious argument, that the explanations
iven were in the interests of Victoria,
ike all " tainted news," the article in
uestion was a mountain of fiction built
pon an atom of fact; it was published
lolely because the Eastern banks are now
jully aware that The Week has measured
eir capacity for ensuring the stagnation
[f Victoria, and they hoped by this time-
article to avoid public discussion on
eir relapse into their previous iniquitous
olicy.
Reactionary Policy.
We have purnosely called this a relapse
>r it is a well known fact that the four
Irticles published during last year by The
eek have brought forth fruit abundantly,
ing the means of considerably righting
revious wrong-doing for the simple rea-
m that they were true from end to end
|nd expressed the views of every genuine
tizen of Victoria.   But let us trace some
£ the effects of those articles and then we
all better understand the present situ-
Ition.
On the appearance of each of our spe-
tal articles we received scores of letters,
jot only  from   Victoria,  but from  old
sictorians  residing  at  other  points  in
British Columbia;   among these letters
ere was not a dissentient note; each and
jvery writer agreed with our comments;
lany considered we had not gone far
ough in our statements.   Hardly was the
|ik dry on the third article when the
Irorthern Bank decided to accelerate the
pening of its Victoria branch; the read-
lg of our articles caused this acceleration.
the men who guided the enlightened
jlicy of the new bank knew that Western
ethods would be welcomed.   Unfortun-
lely, two other banks read the articles
d decided to open here;  we say unfor-
jjmately, for they are Eastern banks, gov-
ned by Eastern men, and will be run on
astern methods, which are detrimental to
e business life of Victoria.
The foregoing examples are to us but
all results.    The greatest result lies in
ie fact of our special articles having been
refully read by the general managers
nd directors of the Eastern banks; quiet
and subtle inquiries being afterward made
as to the popular feeling in Victoria, with
the result of a silent alteration of policy—
a ceasing to appropriate the capital of Victoria for the exploitation of other and
distant cities—a permitting of Victoria to
use its own wealth to its own advantage.
Banking Strategy.
Owing to the closing of the Naval Station and the withdrawal of the large
amount of ready cash which always circulated in Victoria from that source, every
business man in Victoria anticipated a
tightening of ready money during the past
twelve months. To their astonishment the
reverse has happened. Money—for business purposes—has been comparatively
easy in spite of the fact that it has been a
time of expanding business, which always
has a tendency to cause stringency in currency. They are at a loss to explain this,
as the increased influx of tourists would
by no means account for it. The explanation is simple: The whole pith of our
previous articles is found in the fact, that
currency is the life-blood of business; that
Victoria's currency is entirely controlled
by Eastern banking institutions; that
these institutions have persistently and
wrongfully taken and used the currency
anl wealth of Victoria for other distant
cities, thereby withdrawing the life-blood
of the mercantile life of Victoria, to the
detriment of the entire city, and the ultimate stagnation of all enterprise. Currency is the stream which carries capital,
wealth and money throughout the entire
community; it is an artificial stream built'
by man, and can be dammed and deflected
at his will; it was an easy matter for the
Eastern banks—which, as we have pointed
out, entirely control our currency—to temporarily cease exporting our capital, and
permit of its carrying out its natural purpose in Victoria; this was done, and is the
sole explanation of the comparative ease
in money during the past twelve months.
False Pretexts.
Why then this sudden alteration in
policy, According to the inspired article
in the Times, the chief reason is the large
amount of money tied up in wheat in the
Prairie sections, coupled with other money
tied up in lumber which the mills are unable to move. These are put in the foreground of the argument and throw the
main blame on the dislocation of traffic
through inadequate service by the railways; they are false from beginning to
end, as anyone can easily ascertain by inquiring from thc railway, elevator, and
lumber companies. The atom of fact is
contained in the eleven words at the commencement of the third paragraph, and is
most forcibly and correctly exposed by the
following extract from the Canadian
Courier:
" The Canadian banking Association is one of the greatest monopolies
in Canada and in some ways it has
been the most beneficial. Nevertheless, when it refuses to pay more than
the historic three per cent, on deposits
when money has risen in value two to
five per cent., it is taking an undue
advantage. The bank deposits should
be rising rapidly, yet in March they
declined several millions. People are
drawing out their savings and investing them elsewhere.
" The banks were so short of cash
recently that tlie Ontario Government
was forced to come to their assistance
and take part of its huge deposit in
the Bank of Montreal and divide it
up among the other institutions in
hundred thousand lots. Probably the
Dominion Government would have
done the same thing if its expenditures were not jumping ahead so fast.
Yet the banks in the face of this situation refuse to advance the rate of
interest which their monopoly has
fixed."

One Dollar Per Annum
The sole reason for the sacrifice of the
business interests of Victoria is the stringency of currency in Eastern Canada
caused by the mismanagement of the
Eastern bank directors, and should drive
home to the business community of Victoria the tremendous disadvantage of having their currency dominated by men
whose real interests are situated thousands
of miles from Victoria and who, in the
majority of cases, have neither seen Vie*
toria, nor have they the slightest knowledge
of its business requirements.
Shylock Outdone.
The expose by the Courier also gives the
key to the tremendous energy displayed
by the branch bank managers in Victoria
in their efforts to secure funds through
the medium of their savings bank department. An example of this is to be found
in the foolish arrangement recently made
by the school trustees with the Bank of
B. N. A. in regard to the children's savings. During these negotiations, the manager of this branch bank appeared as a
sort of philanthropic " angel of thrift";
but it was all arrant humbug; he was out
for the good of the bank, borrowing money
at a beggarly three per cent, to loan out at
seven and eight per cent., with no guarantee that the money would be used in
Victoria and with the certainty that the
profits would go into the pockets of shareholders, the great majority of whom do
not care a cent for the prosperity of Victoria outside of their dividends. When
all is said and done, these same children's
savings are in reality hard-earned savings
of the fathers and mothers of Victoria;
and if this lesson in thrift was necessary,
why did not the school trustees organise
their own bank and invest some portion of
the accumulations in the much wanted
school buildings? Simply because they
have not yet learned the vital fact that
currency is the life-blood of business. We
do not wonder the manager in question has
got a rise in the banking ladder—he has
earned it.
Referring again to the Times article, at
frequent intervals there occurs therein
pathetic intimations that the discouragement of overdrafts will not injure local
merchants; this is announced in the subtitle and is repeated in the body of the
article; it reminds one forcibly of the
dental parlor with a child in the dental
chair and the dentist soothing its fears
with reiterated statements that he will not
hurt—all humbug from beginning to end
—the curtailment of legitimate overdrafts
does hurt, damage, and stagnate mercantile interests. The evil of this selfish
policy falls entirely on the business community; for we must repeat and shall continue to repeat, it is nothing more nor less
than appropriating local currency—" Tlie
life-blood of our commerce"—which should
bn used for the judicious advancement of
Victoria's interests. To prove that this
damage is real we will quote a few incidents out of many whicli have occurred
during thc past week.
Local Business Discouraged.
A local business man of excellent reputation and long residence in Victoria, own
ing a small but growing and very Bound
business, saw an opportunity to utilise spot
cash to the advantage of his business; he
was some two hundred dollars short of the
amount, so he called on his banker at once,
carrying with him a detailed statement of
his affairs, showing a considerable surplus
of assets over liabilities, together with a
statement showing amounts due by customers to the value of two thousand dollars; the names on this list were absolutely first-class, and the bank manager1
could not but acknowledge that everything-
was sound and in good condition, and yet
he refused the loan. The customer immediately went to another bank which is
under no stringent Eastern necessity. His
request was at once granted and the account removed. Had it not been for this
opportunity the man's business would have
been crippled, and the crippling of one individual business ultimately reflects on
the whole business community. Another
incident of a different nature:
Four of the best known of the business
men of Victoria, each of them classified in
the one hundred thousand dollar list, recently had an opportunity to promote an
industrial business in Victoria. In addition to the money they were inclined to
put up themselves, they required a ten
thousand dollar overdraft, for which they
Avere willing to give their guarantee and
notes; it was a perfectly legitimate and
every-day matter of business, but the Eastern bank branch manager turned the proposition down, not from any fault he could
find with it, but solely because he had no
power to advance the money. This enterprise has been lost to Victoria; had Victoria possessed a local bank, locally managed, a different tale would have been told,
as its funds would not have been required
to bolster up Eastern industries or short
call loans on Wall Street at 20 per cent.
Puppets.
A score of incidents such as the above
could be cited; for the middle class mercantile community of Victoria is seething
with discontent at the unwarrantable action of these Eastern banks. The larger
concerns do not feel it, as the financial
magnates in the East are too wary to permit injustice against the large and wealthy
local firms, who can bite as well as bark.
They rely on the well known lack of cohesion on the part of the middle class mercantile community; but it is that section
which makes up fully seventy-five per cent,
of the whole.
To obtain every possible cent of the savings of the working class and youths of
Victoria, every inducement is being offered, except the best of all inducements
—a just rate of interest. Has it ever
occurred to the working men and youths
of Victoria who are accumulating from
one to a thousand dollars in the savings
bank, that if two or three of them had to
act together, instead of the beggarly rate
of interest they obtain from the banks,
they could secure from six to eight per
cent, on first-class mortgages with the additional satisfaction of keeping the money
in Victoria to the advantage of the whole
community!
Many people may have wondered why
the inspired article we arc criticising was
published in the Times, and not in the
Colonist, The Colonist is the leading
paper, and wc should imagine that aji a
rule it has the bankers' preference, .fhe
reason is not far to seek. The manager
of the Colonist is very deeply interested
in Victoria, not merely from a political

At The Street   ^
Corner        h
•p By THB LOUNGER P
I had meant to talk to you this
wek about Immigration, and perhaps
I may yet have space in these columns to treat this important matter,
but two events have occurred since
my first determination, which have
caused me to relegate my original
subject to the background.
The first was thc sight on Government St. of a team of horses drawing a carriage belonging to the Victoria Transfer Co., making violent
love to a telegraph pole just outside
the Bank of Commerce. The reason
for these amorous advances was that
they were terrified by the street cars,
to whom no blame can attach, seeing that they are a necessary adjunct
to the city, and that both drivers and
conductors throughout the length of
the main street showed the utmost
consideration. Nor can blame be imputed to the driver, who used great
tact in endeavouring to control his
fiery steeds. The horses themselves,
poor creatures, cannot be blamed for
being frightened by a mysterious
body to which they had evidently
leen unaccustomed. No! The person or persons in fault were those
■who were responsible for sending out
from the above-mentioned livery stables a pair of horses which had not
-been trained to face horseless vehicles. Inside the hack was an elderly
gentleman, an old lady and a young
one. Although they alighted apparently unaffected by thc mishap, yet
a shock of this kind is not usually
borne without injury by those who
are well advanced in years. It is the
opinion of The Lounger that no
hacks should be sent out with customers until they have been thoroughly accustomed to all the strange
noises and sights which they may
meet in the streets. Had the accident not turned out as happily as it
did thc parties morally responsible
would have been The Victoria Transfer Company.
The Victoria Times cavils at the
gullibility of the public in taking aft
interest in the itinerant peddler, who,
as it declares, is alwasy selling trash.
First of all, this latter statement is
not invariably true, though there are
■undoubtedly many who make their
living out of fooling the public by
their patter. But even so, they perform a most useful function in life.
From a material point of view they
pay a certain fee daily for license'to
stand on the streets in order to proclaim the excellence of their wares.
Money, though it come in small quantities, is always useful. But these
peddlers perform a far higher function than thc mere contributing of
filthy lucre to thc city's coffers; they
contribute to the general good-nature
of all mankind, except apparently to
that of thc editor of thc paper mentioned. Who ever saw an ill-tempered face round thc stand of one of
these cheerful "bluffers"? On thc
contrary almost every one is laughing, and those who arc not, arc smiling at the flood of banter and preposterous remarks which flow from
the orator's lips as hc cajoles his listeners into buying something which
they do not want. Every time a fresh
gull comes into thc ring a spontaneous burst of merriment overcomes
the crowd; all cares arc forgotten
while the incessant nonsense goes on,
repeating itself as soon as a new
horde of eager ones arrives. If for
this reason only, I think that the
street peddler should bc encouraged
in his laudable work.
What is there finer in this dull
workl of ours than laughter? There
arc some, alas, so sadly constituted
that they cannot laugh, but these
miss all thc beauty of life. Imagine
what a miserable companion Henry
I must have been after thc drowning
of his good-for-nothing son, William.
What an epitaph! "lie never smiled
again." Thc miserable, brooding man
or woman is thc epitome of selfishness.    Living in    thc    gloom them
selves, they try to plunge all whom
they meet into the same outer darkness. Contrast their society with
that which the cheerful person gathers round himself. He lives in the
hey-day of life; no matter what his
own worries or aches and pains may
be, he doesn't bother other people
wtih them.
So many men and women, but men
especially, air their little troubles to
all with whom they come in contact.
What good does it do a tooth-ache
to let everyone see that you are suffering? It won't help to take away
the pain, and it throws a constraint
on the whole gathering, thereby leaving the sufferer to ponder over his
misfortune; whereas if he were to try
and be amusing and to encourage
those with him to talk and laugh,
though that wouldn't stop thc toothache, it would at any rate, give him
something else to think about. It is
my firm belief that half the suffering
caused in the world is due to the fact
that people will brood over their sorrows instead of taking them philosophically. We all know that those
who are frightened of catching some
infectious disease invariably manage
to get it, if there is any epidemic of
it in their neighbourhood, while those
who do not care a particle whether
they catch it or not, just as invariably
escape. In the same way people usually die of the death which they most
peculiarly abominate.
I do not want my readers to think,
however, that I have no sad and sorrowful, not to say sympathetic side to
my nature. There are few things I
enjoy more than weeping. A gentle
melancholy feeling when one is by
oneself is one of the greatest treats
I can imagine. Perhaps some of you
have read a book by Graham called
"In thc Golden Age," which deals
with a family of small children who
had to live with their aunts, whom
they called the Olympians, because
they never could sympathize with
their pleasures. The eldest boy would
often go out and be happily miserable,
planning how he would go forth like
a knight of old, and come back to
forgive in a lofty and patronizing
manner his present unjust persecutors.
I always sympathised with that boy.'
There is something exquisitely beautiful in being hopelessly and entirely
miserable over nothing. I enjoy reading a sad book, and feeling the lump
gradually rising in my throat, knowing that by the time I have finished
the paragraph a salt tear will be trickling down my cheek. That is what I
call enjoying literature. But now-a-
days so few books are written to
awaken the emotions.    ,
On the whole I don't quite know
which I like best: laughter or tears.
It is possible to combine them
though; when someone enters the
room where I am silently weeping,
then I laugh and the two together
are perfectly delightful. Try it. Mind,
I don't advocate sobbing, that is
makii g a noise over grief; to be efficacious, it must be quite silent. However, if I go on much longer in this
strain I shall rust my type-writer.

PEACE
Few realize the most important
service rendered by good wine
in the furthering of international and domestic peace.
When the good man of the
house has quarreled with his
good lady—however silent the
dinner table may be at the
sitting down—shortly the good
wine circulates, the icy blasts
of temper are removed, and
domestic peace ensues. When
two or more countries are on
the verge of war, a timely banquet will often restore peace
after all other means have
failed; on such occasions great
eare is taken to obtain the
finest wine in the world, because diplomats know and understand the softening, peaceful influence of good wine, that
makes men's hearts charitably
disposed to one another. There
is no mystery about this; wine
was given by God for the service of man. At the recent
Peace Congress dinner, naturally great care was taken in the
selection of the wine; it will be
seen from the menu published
by the press of London, New
York and Victoria, that the
wines used on this occasion

Notes on
Provincial News
The Nanaimo Herald is anxious to
remove the impression which has
been created by a pessimistic report
to the effect that the Island boom
has subsided. It sizes up the situation by a paragraph which The Week
believe:, to be substantially correct:
"The general opinion that seems to
prevail that the island boom has subsided somewhat is lar from correct.
Quietly and without the flourish that
was made earlier in the year, property in all parts of the island is
changing hands. Farm lands, especially, are being bought up by shrewd
speculators and well-to-do people who
want country homes in the finest climate in the world, and revenue producing ranches. Never before in the
history of the island have the prospects looked so bright. We repeat
that there is every reason to be satisfied with conditions."
standing up for its rights. The situation, although hardly epochal, is well
hit off in the paragraph in the Nanaimo Free Press:
"The Victoria Day celebration committee at Victoria are worrying about
getting a special train from Nanaimo
for those who wish to attend the celebration in that city. There is no
necessity for them to do so, as Na-
naimoites prefer staying in Nanaimo
for May 24th, where they havc a good
celebration of their own."
Galiano Island, according to latest
reports, is having a little boom all
to itself, and not a very little one,
either, if it be a fact that the Seabrook Farm has been sold for $25,-
000. Mr. Enke is certainly to be congratulated   if  he   has   acquired   Mr.
, Macklin's splendid property for this
modest sum.   If a man wants to re-
| tire from active business and settle
down on a ranch, he could not in the
West find a more beautiful location
than   Galiano   Island.    It  is   certain
I that wtihin a few years the many
beautiful islands of the Sound will be
stripped of virgin timber and cultivated; when that time arrives the
Sound will be dotted with beautiful
I and fertile gardens.
There are few newspaper men who
will not appreciate thc. delicate manner in which a certain incident is
treated by a contemporary. The
Week makes no apology by reproducing it in full, it is racy, and goes
to the spot:
"It is more fun to see a man read
a puff on himself in a newspaper than
to see a fat man slip on an icy sidewalk. The narrow-minded man reads
it over seven or eight times, and then
goes around to appropriate what
copies he can. Thc kind-hearted man
goes around to thc office and pays
what he owes. Thc successful business man who advertises regularly
and makes money by it immediately
starts out to find the editor and thc
two walk silently down the street
together, and the business man takes
sugar in his and they both eat a
clove or two, and life is sweeter and
peace settles down on their hearts
for moments. Such is the experience
of a grain of mustard seed that falls
on different ground."
The rivalry between Victoria and
Nanaimo is growing apace, and the
public cannot but admire the heroic
manner in which    thc    coal  city is
The Week has said some strong
things about thc president of thc Coal
Operators' Association and the president of the local Miners' Union in
East Kootenay, but it has said nothing more to the point than has been
better said by thc Phoenix Pioneer in
a brief editorial, which is quoted below. What all men are saying must
be either thc truth    or    something
pretty near it. What the Phoenix
Pioneer says is well worthy of attention because no section of the country is more disastrously affected by a
coal strike than the Boundary, of
which Phoenix is the mining capital:
Leather Medals Deserved.
The suggestion has been made, and
it seems quite fitting to many of those
more or less interested, that it would
be difficult to find two men who are
so deserving of a leather medal as
G. G. S. Lindsay, manager of the
Crow's Nest Pass Company, Ltd.,
and F. H. Sherman, president of District No. 18, United Mine Workers
of America. It appears to be the universal opinion that thc present disastrous tie-up in the coal fields of thc
Crow, now affecting almost all of
British Columbia and Alberta, is due
to the tactics of these two men more
than to any other single cause, and
that if they could bc suddenly dropped
down in thc centre of Siberia or thc
Congo Free State thc differences between coal operators and coal miners
would bc adjusted with comparatively little difficulty and delay. Even
stronger observations havc been made
by many of the thousands who have
been thrown out of work for the time
being by thc bullhcadedncss of thc
two shining lights referred to.
In their own behalf, that is, on thc
surface, both Mr. Sherman and Mr.
Lindsay seem anxious to end the
strike, yet there arc not wanting
many who decline to take such asseverations seriously—and they can
hardly be blamed, in the light of past
events in connection with both of
these men. Their records are not
such as to inspire any great amount
of confidence in statements that they
give out for publication, and they
have no one to blame for it but themselves.
Consequently, if a committee of admiring (?) operators, coal miners and
busienss men affected should wait
upon Mr. Lindsay and Mr. Sherman
and present them with a joint leather
medal as a token of esteem and confidence it need not bc surprising.
It is good news to hear that trains
have commenced running on the
branch line of the North fork of the
Kettle River. Those who prospected
in this section of the country only a
few years ago brought out reports so
favourable that they were hardly
credited. They were able, however,
to convince capitalists that money
would bc well expended in building
a line, and before long it will bc
found that there are three considerable sources of income, timber, mining and agricultural pursuits. The
latter will be limited, the two former
extensive. There will yet be a good
copper camp in this section, and for
many years to come the best white
pine produced in thc Province will bc
brought from thc extreme west end
of this branch.
with any other class of subsidized
workers. However, there is a sense
in which the Toronto congregation
may be said to havc acted wisely, f6r
a minister who cannot draw a congregation has mistaken his vocation,
because he has no excuse except un-
suitability. He must be a round peg
in a square hole, and unfortunately
this is true Of too many, which accounts for thc universal cry of empty
churches.
Thc Kamloops Standard hits the
nail on thc head with reference to
the Lord's Day Act when it says that
"if a law is placed upon the statute
books it should contain amongst its-
own provisions the machinery for enforcement." There is the case in a
nutshell, and it explains why the position in which a cowardly clause placed
the Attorney Generals of the different Provinces is both unfair and invidious.
Who can possibly bc referred to by
the editor of a Kootenay paper in a
remark which may yet land him in
gaol for thc committing of an offence
which can hardly be considered other
than lese majestie? Thc bold utterance is: "The dignity of the bench
is far better upheld by the judge who
is jealous of thc honor of thc court,
than by one whose only consideration
is insistence on correct millinery."
The Rossland Miner moralizes on
the action of a Toronto congregation
which reduced its minister's salary because he could not attract a congregation. In commenting upon thc incident the Miner opines that in this
age of competition we have reached
the point where every man who is
dependent on others for his position
msut cither make good or quit. This
has been true longer than the Miner
seems to recognize, but possibly people have been more long suffering
and indulgent with their psators than
Chief Engineer Hogeland of the
V. V. & E. Ry, is anxious to reassure
thc public as to thc probability of
more extensive construction in the
near future, lie has given an interview to a Seattle paper, in which he
declares that there has been no intentional delay and that his company
has merely been subject to thc customary difficulties which havc to be
contended with. He promises trains
to Keremeos in June; all The Week
has to say is that if trains reach Keremeos this year there will be no
complaint, and even then the speed
will have to bc accelerated far beyond
anything that has yet occurred.
Speaking  Frankly.
" By the way, sir," asked thc waiter,
"how would you like to have your
steak?" .,
"Very much, indeed.'' replied the
mild man, who had been patiently

EDITORIAL COMHENT.
(Continued from Page One)
and domestic, but also from a
financial point of view. He is far
too wide awake to the interests of
the business community to be persuaded to publish news which is
false in its essence, and antagonistic to the real interests of the
city.
The usual amount of vituperation is being hurled at the
branch managers' heads; this is
merely a waste of breath, for as
we pointed out in the previous articles, a branch bank manager is
a mere puppet; an automatic
India-rubber doll would be equally effective. The sword of Damocles, in the shape of resignation,
is kept constantly—not merely
suspended—but dangling before
his eyes if he dares to act on his
own initiative. He has not the
authority of a chief clerk in an
ordinary mercantile business; he
is to be pitied rather than condemned.
The Remedy.
There are two cures for this
great evil; one is a united demand
by the mercantile community for
just terms coupled with the utilisation in Victoria of a just share of
Victoria's deposits. This will do
good as long as the Eastern managers imagine we are awake; the
moment they think we are lulled
to sleep, they will resume the evil
habits they have acquired through
a long state of somnolence on the
part of Victoria. The other and
far better plan is a VICTORIA
BANK for VICTORIA PEOPLE; we have money enough in
this city to carry out every item
of our currency needs; nay, we
will go further and say we can
also attend to the entire needs of
Vancouver Island. We have business men able enough and wealthy
enough to furnish one of the
strongest boards of directors in
Canada. Why should Victoria continue this pusillanimous method
of entrusting the keeping of her
wealth into other hands at a beggarly three per cent., when the
money, if employed here, would
produce from eight to fifteen per
cent., would build up our industries, and, best of all, would prevent the mercantile community of
Victoria from being beggars at the
feet of the men to whom they have
lent Victoria's money.
When the dispute
"Miner and between the Koote-
The Miners."   nay    and   Alberta
operators and miners was at its height, Mr. S. H. C.
Miner and the well known proprietor of the Granby Rubber Works,
Quebec, and erstwhilo president of
the Granby Smelter Company, B.
C, was moved by the spirit to
send a telegram to Mr. H. N.
Galer, manager of the International Coal Co., expressing
amazement tliat the operators had
not forced the Government authorities to arrest and jail Slier-
man and his co-conspirators. He
declared that in so doing the operators would have law, right, reason and tlie whole country at their
backs. Thc only reason The
Week refers to this remarkable
document is to point the moral
which Mr. Miner and gentlemen
of his ilk have yet to learn, viz.,
that more than nine-tenths of all
the trouble which occurs between
capital and labour is due to men
whom fortune has placed in positions of control who havc not
learned to control themselves.
Autocratic Czarite methods are
obsolete in every free country.
They are resented not onlv by the
workmen upon whom they are
sought to be practised, but by the
public, and    Mr.    Miner   never
made a greater mistake, and he
has made several, than when he
supposed that intolerance such as
he exhibits in this telegram,
would be tolerated in B. C. No
further explanation of the perpetual friction which has characterized coal mining in East Kootenay is required than a knowledge of the fact that the spirit
which Mr. Miner displays has
animated other employers who
unfortunately have had the opportunity of taking a more active part
in the management of men.
There may be a
That Day widespread differ-
Of Rest. ence of opinion as
to the utilitv and
desirability of enforcing the Lord's
Day Act. Every man is entitled
to his own opinion on the subject.
It is neither a political nor a party
question, but since those who,
through good and evil report have
advocated its enforcement are
more or less severely criticised, it
may be as well to point out that if
the Act has done nothing else, it
has already secured a complete
rest day for 50,000 men who were
previously compelled to and did
work on Sunday. Leaving Church
going and the religious of the
question entirely out of consideration, there are few people who
will not consider that such a result goes far to justify the legislation.
A year ago, when
An Island the Victoria Tourist
Association.      Association was be
ing reorganized, and
its scope enlarged, The Week advocated an alteration in its title
and constitution which would have
made it an Island instead of purely a Victoria institution. The
suggestion was not accepted, being
turned down upon perfectly reasonable grounds by those who considered that the first duty of Victoria was to itself. The ground
upon which The Week advocated
the change was that the growth of
Victoria was entirely dependent on
the Island, and the marketing of
its resources, and therefore the
two interests were so inseparately
connected that the one could not
be advanced without the other. A
year's experience seems to have
added some weight to this contention, and now a movement is on
foot which is endorsed by prominent Victorians to form such an
organization with headquarters at
Nanaimo. The Week heartily supports the proposal, and only regrets that its suggestion was not
acted upon a year ago, in which
case Victoria, as the Capital of the
Island, would have secured control of the Association, which will
now pass to the Coal City. However, it is probable that no harm
has been done, and with a strong
representative committee much can
l)n effected for the judicious advertising and exploiting of the
Island.
the press. Having heard the gentleman, The Week knew" whereof
it spoke, and has recently had ample vindication for any criticism
it may have levelled at Mr. Torrey
in an occurrence reported in the
Montreal papers. Half-way up
Beaver Hill is a small book store
kept by a somewhat eccentric
Scotchman named Norman Murray. The man is poor, and honest,
a crank on literature, holding Socialistic ideas and especially embittered against orthodox religion.
No one in Montreal questions his
sincerity. His frequent interruptions at public meetings are always treated good-humouredly,
and with an air of easy tolerance.
Because poor Norman Murray
had the temerity to interrupt the
Evangelist Torrey, the latter flew
into a rage, turned upon Murray,
and to use a figure of speech,
wiped the floor with him, at a
large revival meeting at St. James
Methodist Church. It is possible
that a revivalist even might go so
far and yet retain the respect of
some people, but unfortunately
for himself, he went a step farther, and slandered Mr. Murray's
character. Whereupon the latter,
who at least has courage, entered
an action for slander against Torrey, employed a leading firm of
solicitors and set the machinery of
the law in motion. Probably Mr.
Torrey would not object to this
very much as it gave him the benefit of a free advertisement, but
what undoubtedly made him feel
the pinch, and will assuredly teach
him to curb his tongue in future,
was an order made by Judge Ma-
thieu to seize all the missionary
funds collected during his stay in
Montreal, to meet the law costs
and as a guarantee that this peripatetic mud-slinger will be on
hand wheu the trial is called.
STOP PRESS.
Just as The Week goes to press information is to hand from Mr. Hun*
gerford Pollen, President of the Kootenay Central Railway, to the effect
that in consequence of the favorable
termination of important negotiations
in which Mr. H. G. Parsons, the member for Columbia, and the Provincial
Government have taken an influential
part, the construction of the Kootenay
Central Railway is assured and probably within the time limit, viz., two
and a half years. Work will commence vigorously at once.
At the moment of going to press
The Week is in receipt of a special
despatch from Toronto stating that
G. G. S. Lindsay will retire almost
immediately from the general management of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. The event has been anticipated for some time, but has no
doubt been precipitated by the recent
strike which by general consent is
now attributed to the lack of tact displayed by the President of the Operators' Association.
It is said that the hardest job ever
tackled by one of the Colonial Premiers now in our midst was to try
and instil a sense of reverence into
his domestic employes. Thus, a raw
youth, who had obtained a job in the
garden, was informed: "It is a custom amongst my men—of course it
doesn't really matter—but it's just a
custom to touch their hats when I
pass." The new man promised to fall
into line. When his nibs happened
along on the morrow he was met by
a wild colonial boy, waving his hat
and leaping into the air, and shouting
"Hooray!" The wild colonial boy got
the sack.

the stodginess and invertebrateness
essential to the discharge of such
a role, but this week " mirabile
dictu" the editor has been seeing
snakes. Not the kind, let us hope,
which infest the morning after,
but presumably some new species
of which more anon. In the issue
of May Sth, referring to the editor
of the Victoria Times, the Colonist
says that he belongs to the class
of men so unhappily constituted
that he is like a little cur dog
which gets behind a fence and
barks violently at everybody that
passes. Then he is like a carrion
crow going around in search of
something unpleasant. And once
again he is like a' slimy snake
whicli crawls around in the hope
of being able to find some place
into which he can thrust his sting.
The editor of the Times is so
much amused at the senile outburst that he does not even resent
the imputation and good humour-
edly suggests that his brother of
the Colonist must have had them
badly. The whole constitutes an
pdifying spectacle for men and
gods. Tliere is some scriptural
warrant for believing that once on
a time righteousness and peace
kissed each other, but we have
ransacked the volume in vain to
discover any precedent for the
combination of a slimy snake and
a refined editor.
Literary Note.
Ex-Governor Macintosh has certainly distinguished himself by carrying off one of the Flummerfelt prizes
for the best essay on the resources of
British Columbia. For conciseness,
lucidity, and reliability, it is far ahead
of anything that has been published,
and Mr. Flummerfelt has signalized
his appreciation of its value by having some ten thousand copies printed
and circulated far and wide, not only
on this Continent, but in Europe. The
Week extends its hearty congratulations to Mr. Macintosh, who has been
more immersed in matters commercial and political of late years, but
who thirty years ago won his spurs
in journalism by successful work on
the Ottawa Press.

Notes on
Provincial News
Mr. Justice Clement has shown
himself to bc a firm upholder of the
law, during the recent assizes at
Nelson. One witness who had been
ordered out of court was guilty of
■eavesdropping by standing on the
steps outside and listening to the evidence of an important witness. On
the Judge's attention being called to
thc offence, he at once sentenced him
to three months' imprisonment, a decision which will be universally approved. Another witness suspected
of similar misconduct was only saved
from a like fate by swearing that he
had not listened, but counsel averred
that he was in a position to produce
a number of witnesses to the contrary, whereupon the Judge announced that he would not proceed further
in investigating the charge of contempt, intimating that it might resolve itself into one of perjury, a far
more serious matter. Such wholesome strictness is highly commendable and will undoubtedly tend to increase the respect of thoughtless and
indifferent persons for the due observance of all matters connected
with tlie law and its administration.
The Moyie Leader is following up
the coal situation pretty closely with
the result that nothing of importance
escapes its attention. In its last issue the following not unimportant
item is exploited:
"The annual report of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Co. stated that a dividend of ten per cent, would be declared amounting to $350,000. And
yet the company wants to reduce
wages."
ter being brought to the notice of
Mr. Tatlow, the acting Premier, he
promptly denied that there was anything in it, so the Royal bourg can
breathe once more.
The rumours which fill thc air are
proverbially unreliable. Some busybody started the report that the Government offices were to bc removed
from New Westminster.   On thc mat-
The Rossland Miner of May the
fifth contains a two-page advertisement announcing that on the fifth day
of June at half past two o'clock, in
the office of the Company, Street
Railway Chambers, Craig street, Montreal, there will be sold by public
auction to the highest bidder the
whole of the property of the Payne
Consolidated Mining Co., Ltd. Such
an announcement will excite widespread attention in the Mining world,
for the Payne was one of the pioneer
mines of Kootenay. From its rich
silver lead ore it paid in the nineties, dividends aggregating $2,000,000.
Then it fell on evil days, due partly
to the low price of lead, but still
more to gross mismanagement. The
visible ore was extracted right and
left without the prosecution of systematic development work, and consequently when it was exhausted in
the upper levels, there were no funds
available for prosecuting a search at
greater depth. Just how recklessly
the property has been handled may
be gathered from the fact that when
lead doubled in price and silver advanced considerably, the Company
was unable to take advantage of these
vastly improved conditions, and its
history for the last six years has been
one of continuous disaster. Under
thc management of A. C. Garde, a
spasmodic attempt was made three
years ago to galvanize it into life by
marketing the zinc, which had hitherto been a drug, but then became a
valuable by-product. Even this attempt failed for reasons which need
not he too closely inquired into, since
they formed a matter for investigation
by the Supreme Court. Later lessees
have managed to extract and ship a
small tonnage of ore, but so large a
property can only be dealt with at
all if operated upon a large scale, and
so the end has come, at any rate, for
the present regime. It would be a
mistake, however, to suppose that
there is no future before the Payne.
It may be the intention, and nothing
would be less surprising for some of
the large stockholders to buy the property in, but if this is done, the matter will be conducted with strict fairness and it is certain that no little
shareholder will be frozen out if he
is able to contribute his quota, however modest. The guarantee for this
is the fact that the matter is in the
hands of Mr. Wm. Hanson of Montreal, who has a large stake in the
Company, and than whom there is
not a more honourable man in
Canada.
According to the Cranbrook Prospector, Mr. and Mrs. V. Hyde Baker
have left for a trip to the Old Country and a tour in Europe.
lished in the Province. Its impression, however, is perfectly clear that
time and again, the usefulness of the
Okanagan has been neutralized by its
political bias. However, being unable
to quote chapter and verse, The Week
gladly accepts the assurance that behind these upper cuts and solar plexus
blows, there was no rancour, they
were simply playful strokes. In any
event, business is the order of the
day, and The Week ungrudgingly admits that in respect of the tendency
to mud-slinging in the height of political controversy, there is nothing
to choose between Liberals and Conservatives. As to the parting injunction to "play fair," it has not generally been considered necessary to remind The Week that noblesse oblige,
but the suggestion is taken in good
part and will not be forgotten.
T
If the Daily Canadian is weak on
political economy it must be conceded
that it is strong on history, and twits
a well-known Canadian Editor with
repeating the statement circulated in
the American press that Winston
Churchill had "broken a record" by
being the youngest Commoner who
ever sat in the British Privy Council. As a matter of fact Wm. Pitt
the younger, was Premier of Great
Britain, and therefore a Privy Counsellor at twenty-three, whilst the hope
of the Marlborough family is thirty-
four.
The Crag & Canyon has signalized
the opening of the season at Banff
by recommencing publication. It is
a newsy little sheet, albeit of extremely limited dimensions, and its mission
is to advertise the attractions of thc
National Park. In its issue of May
4th, it deals intelligently with the coal
situation and speaks with special
knowledge by reason of its proximity
to the large Pacific Coal Co.'s mine
at Bankhead. It expresses the hope
that in the interests of peace the new
agreement will place it beyond the
power of Pres. Lindsay to play fast
and loose with the men, to which The
Week adds a fervent Amen.
Revelstoke is agitating for a n<
Provincial gaol, and if it does not 1
aggerate the gravity of the prese
conditions in connection with lo<
incarceration, there should be no
lay in granting the request.
Mail-Herald declares that the pres(
so-called gaol is hardly fit for
housing of swine, let alone hum
beings. It is an ancient, rotten, a
abominable structure. It has serv
for fifty years as a prison and is n
nothing better than a fever-breedi

gaol and the Grand Jury recet
made a strong presentment on
subject. The Herald suggests thai

something would happen quickly,
would not seem as if there should
much trouble, in taking so obviou
reasonable a step.
The Okanagan reflects no unkindly upon some comments which
appeared in The Week respecting its
political rancour, and the only reason
the matter is referred to again is that
it takes exception to the charge that
its editorial columns have been
marred by extravagance in political
statements and in dealing with political issues. Unfortunately The Week
only rents three offices at present and
therefore has not sufficient room to
keep a file of all thc newspapers pub-
There is an excellent field for a

It is the recognition of Colonial

this juncture the brightest hope for

Self-conscious Britons.

good leader of cotillons. An American or a Frenchman does not mind
looking absurd before a roomful of
women, creeping on all fours, jumping through paper hoops, or imitating
the agile chamois over the furniture.
But unless he is out of doors at a

that comes from-such a quarter

Modern Artificiality.
We certainly should be downcast
at the wholesale artificiality of the
age. Most of the people one knows
are in reality entirely different from
what they seek to appear. To take
anybody seriously is well-nigh a heinous offence, and it seems to be regarded as a much greater triumph
to produce an imitation that "defies
detection" than an enduring work uf
art. The classes are compounded of
shams; the middle classes delight in
them.—World.

but only natural and downright, to

what repels, how she really feels
when she is kissed by a man, and
how she feels when she is not kissed, and a thousand other things which
a man author can only guess at and
in no case can expound. Here, surely, is a chance for a woman writer.—

In this fierce conflict, the man of
character always finds his strongest

is never realized—it is the undertow.

if A Lady's Letter *
iy By  BABETTE. *f
Dear Madge:
Amongst my numerous and promiscuous acquaintances there is an old
wharfinger whom I have known for
years.
He is to be found about the wharf
almost any time of the day and is
quite an interesting old chap, with
plenty to talk about.
The following is an account of my
last interview with him:
"Yes, Miss, I s'pose I'm a regular
wharf rat now, seeing as how I've
shuffled freight, chased trucks and
shifted cargo for fifteen years, with
an odd night's Avatch when there's
been a hand shy, or old Abe yonder's
taken a fancy for a spree.
"There's been times, too, Miss,
when I've stoked all night on board
a Sound steamer in a rough sea with
the old hulk a-creaking as if she was
going to split up every minute, and
the engine room knee deep in water.
But we've made port every time,
Miss, and they ain't got a chance to
call me a Jonah yet. T'aint what
you'd call a fanciful job, but me and
the Missus has lived by it quite comfortable like, and I guess there ain't
much else I can do.
"I s'pose you would say, too, Miss,
like a lady once said on the upper
deck when we'd heaved to and was
making fast with the riggin: 'Poor
fellows, they don't see much' of life,
working all the time around the.
wharf.'
"Well, perhaps we don't 'cordin' to
her way o' thinking, but we get a
good many side lights, sort of starboard and port lookouts, over what
the preacher would call 'the sea of
^ life.'
. "I don't forget faces easily, Miss;
» that's why I sort of started like when
I saw, that tall fellow over yonder,
and I'm going to tell you when I first
saw him: It was in '98, after the
gold craze up North, and there was a
good many fellows like him a' coming
down from Dawson with big nuggets
tX dangling from their watch chains,
long black Havanas sticking out of
their mouths, starched dickies, and
diamond studs.
"One night in September he boarded the Sound boat, and fussed so
much about his blooming baggage
that we all wished him down wid the
fishes of the deep. Later on I heard
.1 ■-:- him a-calling'the steward in the hatchway, and I didn't much cotton to
him. Abe says to me: 'Fresh guy
that, guess he's made his pile up
North and thinks he's It.'
"Well, we got busy with the freight,
and about ten minutes before we
started I seed an old man and his
wife coming along to the gang-plank
with a gal of about 17, as pretty a
baggage as you'd ever set eyes on.
Her hair was all gold, and shined in
the light and her cheeks as rosy and
fresh as an apple.
" Tell Cousin Jim to give you a
good time, May, and come home
soon.'
"All right, Dad, good-bye Ma, and
don't forget to look after the canary.'
"All this time I see'd that fresh guy
a' eyeing her up and down ana taking in the situation. I was first
Watch on board that night, and we
hadn't as much as got clear away
when I see that feller a-walk up to
the gal, take off his hat and start
speaking to her. She seemed a' kind
a' coy-like at first, but bye and bye
she was a walking round the deck
and talking with him as though she
had known him all her life. Later
on, at 8 bells, when I went aft to
trim the glim I see them too a-lean-
ing over the rail, still a-talking. And
in the morning hc carried off her grip,
and she was a-smiling up at him as
if he was the only pebble.
"I didn't scc no more of them two
'till p'raps a year and a half later and
I had almost clean forgot 'cm. One
afternoon I was a-hustling round the
wharf with the crew when I piped
the girl a-coming down thc gangway. She had a baby in her arms,
and carried a small bag. Her clothes
was shabby and her face wns pale.
She looked kind o' longingly round,
but I didn't see no Pa or Ma to meet
her, and her eyes seemed sad like.
Then I heard her ask a fellow if old
Mrs. Dubbs yonder, still kept lodgers,
and I sees her a-going off in that direction. Next day she comes down
to the boat again, and for three weeks
we sees her every day a-standing by
the gang-plank, looking eager-like at
every one what comes off. One day
she spies that tall fellow, and she
smiles and speaks to him, but he
didn't seem to care to notice her and
she goes up to him and hangs onto
his arm. Then he takes her aside
with a cuss-word, and bye and bye,
before he hustles away he gives her
some money. When I seed her face
again the big tears were running down
her cheeks and she was the saddest
looking gal I ever seed. She stood
on the end of the wharf for some
time watching the water lap up about
the piles, and I keeps my eyes open,
'cos I don't much like the looks of
her standing there. But she didn't
move, just stood there watching the
waves till it began to get dusk, and
I had finished my job. I waited about
for a few minutes quite close to
where she was standing, and pretty
soon she turned round, and I swear
I hardly knew her. There was no
more tears and weeping but a hard,
cold-like look was in her face and
her eyes got kind of narrow-like as
she took me in. Then she laughed,
tipped her chin up in the air and
walked away into the night."

Victoria Musical  Society.
The following circular has been
sent out by Mr. Geo. Phillips, the
secretary of the Victoria Musical Society. It speaks for itself, but I am
glad to have the opportunity of emphasizing the last paragraph, which
which urges members to attend. The
excellent work done by the society
during the past year bodes well for
the future. There has been a steady
progression towards a higher level,
and the Marie Hall Concert, which
closed the season stamped it with the
hall-mark of excellence. If the society is to maintain this high level
of musical excellence, it will be necessary for every member to take a
personal interest in the annual meeting in order that there may be the
necessary energy and force to prepare
and. carry out next season's work.
"Victoria Musical Society—Patron:
His Excellency the Governor-General.
The annual meeting will be held (by
the kind permission of Mr. Harrison)
in the drawing-room of the Driard
Hotel, at 8 o'clock, on Wednesday,
May 15th.
"Business.—Reports of committee,
treasurer and auditor.
Election of committee for the ensuing year.
Proposed incorporation of the society under the "Benevolent Societies
Act."
And such other business as may
arise.
"As this meeting will decide to a
large extent the scope of the Society's
work for next season, you are earnestly requested to attend.
GEORGE PHILLIPS,
Honorary Secretary-Treasurer.
Members are requested to bring
any of their friends Avho arc interested in music."

MOMUS.
WIT AND HUMOUR.
The New Grand.
In Pinkie Mullally, Victorians recognize an old favourite. For some
years Miss Mullally appeared regularly at the Fort St. Theatre, which
has been successively known as "Redmond's," "Watson's," "The Empress"
and "Pringle's." She is now appearing in vaudeville as soubrette, in
which role she excels rather as a
dancer than as a singer. Edward A.
Leslie redeems the monologuistic
part of his term by the excellence of
his "coster" reprecsntations. Harry
W. Babb & Co. in "The Sheriff of
Laramie," put on a sketch far below
the average and interspersed it with
a large number of unnecessary oaths.
Burton and Vass thoroughly amused
the house with their quaint conceits
and proved a great success. The Parisian Grand Opera Duo were more
remarkable for the excellence of their
costumes than of their performance,
Dad, Here's to You.
We happened in a home the other
night, and over the parlor door saw
the legend Avorked in letters of red,
"What Is Home Without a Mother?"
Across the room was another brief,
"God Bless Our Home."
Now, what's the matter with
"God Bless Our Dad?" He gets
up early, lights the fire, boils an
egg and wipes off the dew of the
dawn with his boots while many a
mother is sleeping. He makes the
weekly handout for the butcher,
the milkman and the baker, and his
little pile is badly worn before he
has been home an hour.
If there is a noise during the night
dad is kicked in the back and made
to go down stairs and find the burglar and kill him. Mother darns the
socks, but dad bought the socks in
the first place and the needles and
the yarn afterwards. Mother does
up the fruit; well, dad bought it all,
and jars and sugar cost like the mischief.
Dad buys the chicken for the Sunday dinner, carves them himself, and
draws the neck from the ruins after
everyone is served. "What Is Home
Without a Mother?" Yes, that is all
right, but what is home without a
father?
Ten chances to one it's a boarding
house, father is under a slab and the
landlady is his widow. Dad, here's
to you—you've got your faults—you
may have lots of 'em—but you're all
right and we will miss you when
you're gone.—The Earth.
Power of Speech.
District Attorney Jerome, of New
York, was talking at a dinner about
the power of speech.
"Speech, talk," he said, "if it is
fast and fluent and earnest enough,
will achieve miracles, turn black
Avhite, do anything. A woman went
to buy an Easter bonnet the other
day. The salesman, getting his
tongue slightly twisted, brought out
a handsome bonnet and said rapidly
and excitedly: 'A great bargain,
madam. Thc last one left. They
haA-e all gone off like hot cakes. And
no wonder! Formerly $io, now offered for $15.'
" 'I'll take it,' thc Avoman, much
impressed, said hastily."
You cannot get out of
a proposition that which
it doesn't contain.
Under the magic touch of the

Vancouver Notes.
With a membership of over 700 the
Retail Clerks Association is now making a vigorpus campaign for the closing of business house for the half-
noon of Wednesday during the
months of June, July and August, excepting in such weeks as contain a
legal holiday. Many prominent merchants have expressed themselves as
strongly in sympathy with the movement, but apparently the majority do
not favor the movement. When the
question was first broached employers
appeared willing to concede a shortening of hours on Saturday evening,
but even this slight concession fell
through, and now the clerks are out
with requests to sign an agreement
for the mid-week holiday. Meanwhile
commencing this week the storekeepers of Fairview have agreed to the
proposal, but whether their action will
influence the great bulk of houses
down town remains to be seen.
