KING EDWARD VII
It is   doubtful  whether  the  English
people knew how much King Edward VII
had done for the Empire and the AVorld,
or how much he had endeared himself to
them until he was so suddenly and unexpectedly   snatched   away.   Not   that  he
lacked appreciation either as a Monarch
or. a man, but that with his taking away
men's eyes were opened, ancl for the first
time they saw clearly how great and majestic a figure he was.    In the latter years
of her life his illustrious Mother, our ever
beloved Queen Victoria, continually came
nearer to her people.    During the long-
years of her reign and widowhood the
imagination conceived of her as an august,
beningant, aud isolated figure; when the
weakness of age crept on. the veil behind
which she had for so long enshorouded
herself was drawn aside.    Pathos succeeded splendour,   sovereignty blended  with
humanness, and the touch which makes all
flesh kin effected a transformation from
Queen ancl  Empress  to  Mother  of her
people.   It was in this light that she was
regarded for some years before her passing.    The approaching shadows subdued
the aspect of sovereignty ancl embraced in
heir folds Queen ancl people alike.    No
:orrect analysis of the relation in which
King Edward stood with his people during the last five or six years could fail to
•ecognise that he too, without doffing the
ermine ancl purple, had stepped into the
same close relationship which his great
Mother enjoyed; and when all is said and
done what  greater  achievement  can  be
placed to the credit of any monarch than
that the vast social gulf which separates
him from his people shall be bridged by
sympathy  and   profound  understanding,
until without forgetting that he is a King
both he and his subjects are able to realise
pat he is  a man,  and  a man whose
nemory will forever be enshrined in the
Iiearts of his subjects. But King Edward
vas much mqre than this, his death has
lemonstrated that his influence was not
imited by the bounds of the Empire for
ributes of appreciation and affection have
)oured in from every part of the civilized
vorld. Never has there been so universal
1 recognition of the virtues and influence
if a Monarch, and tributes from Nations
vhich owed him no allegiance are not one
lit less profound ancl sympathetic than
hose which have been offered by every
ection of the people over whom he ruled.
Vhat could be finer than that of Le Petit
'ar
lsien: "France bows before the bier of
Iklward VII, a Chief of State who really
nderstood the meaning of liberty and the
alue of peace." The German Press is
ot to be outdone in its appreciation of
tie who has been credited with imposing
lime measure of control even on its
'aiser. The Neue Nachrichten says:
£ing Edward was the most influential
'onarch the world had seen since AVil-
im I. Germans, silent before the
ing's bier, will forget the dissensions of
ys full of strife, and will think only of
Kingly qualities, sharing the sorrow
J the great Nation which has lost him."
le New York Herald says:   "The whole
world sorrows over the death of King Edward."     The   Neue   Freie   Presse   of
A^ienna, not unmindful of its own illustrious Emperor Joseph, does not hesitate
to declare that "King Edward was perhaps   the   most   influential  man   in the
world,  he was the right King for the
twentieth century, modern to the finger
tips."   The tribute of the Novoe Vremya,
St. Petersburg, is one of whole-souled appreciation.    That National organ says:
' May the earth rest lightly on him.  May
his successor inherit his fine qualities, his
love of peace, loyalty to friends, ancl broad
comprehension of the needs of humanity
ancl the State.   The clay of King Edward's
death is a day of mourning for Russia."
Even Portugal in the pages of the Mnndo,
which is an extremely radical publication,
avers that "The best, the most manly, the
most democratic of Kings is dead, by his
acts as King he succeeded in increasing
the prosperity of England and winning
the admiration ancl sympathy of the whole
world, although a King he knew how to
be a citizen ancl a friend of liberty and
justice."   Among tributes from within the
Empire, one of the most aptly worded is
from the Daily News,  Perth, -Western
Australia: "King Edward was more than
King, more than Emperor.   He was a man
whose splendid humanity appealed to men,
he did not stand above the world, but on
it, and loved it.   He possessed the genius
of common sense, and knew how to do the
right thing at the right time ancl in the
right way."    Almost as fine is the comment of the Melbourne Argus: "His death
is mourned not with the decorous and
formal grief which is displayed when the
mere official head of a Nation passes away,
but with deep and genuine sorrow.    He
undertook a great part and greatly played
it."   Perhaps, however the most exquisitely worded and absolutely fitting sentiment
was expressed in an editorial in the Standard : "To King Edward's subjects underneath the immediate shadow of bereavement it is enough for the moment to reflect that the   first   of   Englishmen has
passed away—a Monarch whose name is
written among the highest in the roll of
their long line, a Sovereign, a patriot, a
statesman, a governor well fitted by the
vigour of his intellect and the engaging
charm of his temperament to be the actual
as well as the ceremonial chief of a people
he loved so well, and an Empire he ruled
with such memorable success."    Alongside these tokens of appreciation and affection,  so  exquisitely  phrased  and  so
charged with sensibility, The AA7eek lays
its tribute in the beautiful poem, "Le Roi
est Mort," which appeared on the front
page of last issue, a poem which in the
opinion of the best judges has not been
approached in merit by any other contribution, and which The AVeek believes is
destined to become an Empire Poem, if
not the Classic on the passing of King-
Edward.
THE UNIVERSITY COMMISSION
Having decided to relegate the duty of
selecting the site of the Provincial University to a body of non-resident Commissioners the Government has undoubtedly
gone the best way to work. The selection
of Commissioners could not have been happier, and their personnel will inspire confidence. AA7hatever representations may
be made, no one can doubt that the ultimate selection will be the best, and when
within a few years the stately proportions
of the foremost educational building in
the AVest rises to view, rivalry will be forgotten ancl every energy will be devoted
to make the new University a veritable
"seat of learning."   The AAreek could have
wished that no representations were to be
made to the  Commission,  but that the
members simply travelled round and inspected the country, arriving at their conclusion without having to balance the conflicting claims of rival delegations.    Not
that the result will be affected by these,
but that the Commissioners would have
been spared a great deal of unnecessary
and  tedious  work,  but  it  seems  to be
accepted that delegations will be received
and will be  permitted to set forth the
claims of their respective districts.    The
AVeek believes that all things considered
the best location would be in the outskirts
of Arictoria on a site similar to that occupied by University College, Mount Tolmie;   just near enough to enjoy the advantages, without being subjected to the
disadvantages of City life.    The grounds
on which it holds this opinion are briefly
that the climate of Arictoria is the best
in the Province; that Arictoria is destined
to be mainly a residential and not a manufacturing city, it will therefore be less
affected by the disagreeable concomitants
of a large industrial centre ancl for the
same reason will be free from the turmoil
ancl temptations of a bustling city, such
as Vancouver is destined to become;  and
since it is the capital of the Province, the
seat of Government, and the head of the
Civil Service it seems appropriate that it
should also be the head of what is after
all the most important branch of Government.   All these facts will be patent to
the   Commissioners  even   without  being-
voiced by a delegation, but perhaps there
is no harm in giving utterance to them
in the Press.    It is gratifying to know
that financial considerations are not to be
allowed any weight, if they were, Victoria
would stand a very poor chance, and energetic A^ancouver would have a "walk over,"
but the Government has wisely decided
that no considerations of cost,  no premiums, and no bonuses, are to be taken
into account; since it is prepared to carry
out the University project entirely without
the assistance of local co-operation and
with sole regard to the fitness of the locality for University purposes.    The Commissioners have already reached the City,
they have been received by Premier McBride, and Dr. Young, Minister of Education.   Dean Weldon of Dalhousie, N.S.,
has been selected by his confreres as Chairman, and Principal Murray, of Saskatchewan, will act as Secretary.   The Commission will hold its sittings in Arictoria,
Duncan, Ladysmith, Nanaimo and Alberni
before proceeding to the mainland, when
it will commence at A^ancouver ancl make
an itinerary of at least a dozen of the
principal cities, including New AVestmin-
ster,  Kamloops, Revelstoke,  Nelson and
Cranbrook.   The first sitting will be held
in the Executive Chamber of the Parliament Buildings on Monday next at 10.30
a.m. Mr. George Jay, tlie respected Chairman of the School Trustees, is the chairman of the local reception committee.
many years, at least twenty, to the knowledge of the writer, but has never been able
to justify its title of a "Temperance Act."
They tried it in Ontario, hut after three
years experience Avere only too glad to vote
it out of operation.    The amendment introduced in the last session of Parliament
by Mr. Murphy, and adopted without discussion,   provides   the   machinery   for
bringing it into operation in British Columbia.   The proceedure is that one-fourth
of the persons whose names appear on the
voters' list for the last General Election
are required to sign a petition addressed
to the Governor-General invoking the application of the Act.    The petition is deposited with the Sheriff or Registrar, and
also advertised in the Canada Gazette and
the Provincial Gazette, then a public vote
is taken by ballot, just the same as at an
election, and a bare majority either way
decides the question.    If the majority is
in favour of the Act it becomes operative
for at least three years, and cannot be got
rid of except by a similar process of voting; and it continues in operation until
revoked.    The Act provides that no alcoholic beverage of any kind can be sold in
a Scott Act district except on a medical
certificate, or for sacramental purposes.
No  brewery  or distillery  situated  in  a
Scott Act district can sell for- local con-
■ sumption, the product must be shipped out,
and can only be consigned to a district in
which the Scott Act is not in operation.
No merchant, trader or wholesaler, even
though already established in a Scott Act
district,  can sell for local  consumption
except for medical purposes.   On the other
hand there is nothing to prevent the unlimited importation of liquor from, the outside so long as it is purchased and paid
for on the outside.   The administration of
the Act and its penalties are so drastic as
to be unfair and un-English,    Unlimited
power  is placed  in  the  hands of local
magistrates against whose decision, if they
are of the status of a stipendary, there is
no appeal.   An amendment has recently
been incorporated which throws the onus
on an accused, who must prove liis innocence, instead of on the accuser to prove
his guilt.   The penalty for a first offence
is $50 or a month's imprisonment, for a
second offence $100 or two months, and for
a third and every subsequent offence imprisonment for four months AVITHOUT
THE OPTION OF A FINE.   The most
unrestricted authority is given to search
premises, even including private houses,
to discover liquor where it is supposed to
be kept or used in violation of the Act.
In short, when the penalties and the administration of the Act are taken into consideration it will be seen that it imposes
conditions  to  which  no  self respecting
British people would submit;   which accounts for its abject failure by alienating
public sympathy ancl arousing the hostility of law-abiding citizens.   Such is the
Scott Act which Dr. Spencer seeks to impose upon the subjects of a King who
established   a   universal   reputation   for
British justice and fair play.
THE SCOTT ACT
It is well that the people who live in
British Columbia should familiarize themselves with the provisions of the Canada
Temperance Act, better known as the
"Scott Act," because if Dr. Spencer and
his colleagues are able to get tlieir way
some benighted district in the Province
will soon have a taste of its quality. The
Act was passed in 1864 but has been revised ancl amended as late as 1908. It
has been in operation in Nova Scotia for
LOTUS LAND
A week after his arrival, whicli must
be pretty nearly a month ago, the attention
of the City Engineer was directed to an
extremely dangerous condition which exists at the lower ond of Rockland Avenue,
just East of Cook Street. It was a matter of urgency, and one whicli might easily
land the City in a heavy suit for damages;
nothing has yet been done. The AVeek has
given Mr. Angus Smith more than sufficient time. Perhaps he is asleep and needs
to be awakened. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 28, 1910

The English papers to hand arc
filled with the news of the late King's
death and it is touching to read about
the widespread grief from all Countries, all Sects, all Political bodies
and all Nationalities. The late King
was a great man and so endeared
himself to all classes of the community by his tact, kindliness, and wonderful knowledge of human character
that his loss is a world-wide one.
One cannot realize on an occasion of
that kind the wonderful mechanism
of a big London daily paper. Early
in the evening of the King's death
news came through that his condition was critical. Imagine a Daily
with the type set with news for the
next day and news coming in 'every
minute from every quarter of the
Globe and the uncertainty as to
whether it would all have to be cut
out, and a nearly new paper made up
containing entirely different news; as
who would read anything else next
morning but news of the passing of
the great Monarch, if, and there was
always the if, it was to be. Then towards midnight word came that no
further news, would be given out at
the royal palace until morning. The
mass of news was quickly made ready
for the press; column after column
was got ready for the final stages,
then at between a quarter and twenty
past twelve fresh news came in; the
King was dead. There was no time
for anything but the work ahead, the
papers already nearly finished, had to
be nearly wholly discarded, the ordinary news deleted and the melancholy intelligence with full details
and with columns lined with black
took its place. And so page after
page was made up again. The people
would only want to read about one
thing. Then in the grey dawn carts
filled with the newspapers were distributing their loads at different centres to be ^quickly disseminated by
various sources of transport to the far
ends of the United Kingdom. How
many of the readers next day gave a
thought to thc machinery which supplied them with the news and the uncertainty and stress underlying the
work of a London daily at a time
such as that.
* *     *
On Tuesday morning the fire engines and escapes turned out in force
for a parade and made a very fair
showing and gave thc crowd in the
street a nice little free performance.
They were photographed and the
cinemetograph also got going. Driving three horses who want to go all
the time, is exciting work and requires a good deal of skill. Rounding corners with the long escape is
ticklish work, as whilst the front part
is round in safety the rear may be
hobnobbing with a telegraph pole unless great care is exercised. Driving
ten mules is an exciting pastime also
which I can safely recommend to
anyone requiring a little exercise both
for the temper and the arms. Mules
have earned the reputation for stubbornness and in that respect they are
certainly not maligned.

The Vancouver boat was filled to
its utmost capacity on Empire Day
and 1,500 people came over to the
City from Vancouver, whilst some
hundreds more could not get aboard
at all. It was wonderful where all
these people got to. The_ Gorge cars
were full and picnic parties much in
evidence, whilst the baseball game
attracted a large number to Oak Bay.
Victoria is certainly keeping up its
reputation as a Show City and does
its best to provide amusement for
sightseers. A good water shoot
should do well and other kindred
amusements of the same kind.
* *     *
The Gorge is very crowded nowadays with pleasure seekers and all
kinds of craft negotiate the waterways. The crowd seem to take great
interest watching the boats going
through the bridge where the current
runs fast and critics shout derisive
advice to canoeists. Some people
think that the big rock in the centre
of the stream under the bridge might
be blasted away with advantage, but
if that was done the conditions at
low tide would probably leave much
to be desired as the mud would be
much in evidence. The best thing
if practical, would be a lock. Things
were fairly humming on Tuesday, the
Gorge Park theatre opened the previous day with an Oriental concert
and moving pictures; these performances change every Thursday night.
The Japanese Tea Gardens were
crowded. Mr. Hamilton has laid in a
large stock of new Peterborough
canoes to meet the increasing demand. The merry-go-round had its
usual number of juvenile patrons. The
addition to the ladies' bath house is

The comet on Monday night could
be plainly seen, also the tail which
was supposed to be lost. It is not
often we get the chance of seeing an
eclipse of the moon and a comet at
the same time. The Press all over
the world has been very busy writing
up the comet and now that it has left
us again there will be a blank for
something to dish up to its readers;
it is not even the silly season now.
It is about time we got some more
sea serpent stories—it is always a
pretty safe subject to write about as
nobody knows much about it and it
lends itself to extensive criticism.
It's a great pity we cannot catch the
monster of the deep and tame it as it
would be invaluable for searching for
lost cables, it would never cost anything for its board and could follow
a cable repairing ship about and
whilst off duty might be sent fishing
for revictualling the ship and be useful in a host of other ways.

Yachting News
The Victoria Yacht Club is very
active this season preparing for the
International Regatta to be held here
in July. The resignation of Commodore Gibb on account of ill health
was a severe blow. He was an energetic Commodore, and devoted a
great deal of his spare time to the
interests of the Club. In appointing
a new Commodore, the Club's choice
fell upon Mr. Cuppage, the late Fleet
Captain, and owner of the smart auxiliary yawl "Ailsa." As it is due to
the strenuous efforts of Mr. Cuppage
for the last two years that the Yacht
Club is in its present state of prosperity, it is safe to predict that the
choice was a wise one. Mrs. Cuppage is also a keen sailor, and thoroughly understands the engineering
end of the modern auxiliary yacht, besides being a talented hostess when
occasion demands.
he various committees in connection with this big regatta are at work,
all realizing the advantage to Victoria
in making a success of such a big
event.
Commodore Cuppage has appointed
as his Fleet Captain, Guy T. Temple,
owner of the "Clytie." His knowledge of seamanship, and his many
friends outside the Yacht Club ensure
his worthiness of the honour of this
position.

MUSIC
AND  THE   STAGE
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday
of this week, a feature of the show
presented by the Kiniscope Co. was
undoubtedly the singing and acting
of Mr. Harry Glyn, in his impersonation of Prince Danillo of Merry
Widow fame. He gave the famous
Maxim song in splendid style, and
followed with the love scene in the
second act of that popular comedy.
Mr. Glyn will be seen in a change of
act twice a week at these popular
entertainments, and, as we said last
week, the management is especially
fortunate in securing his services.
The Grand Amateur Contest to bc
held   at   the   Victoria   Theatre   next
week commencing on Monday, 30th,
in   connection   with   the   Kinoscope
Pictures,   bids   fair   to   be   a   great
success.    The  valuable   prize—$75.00
—has already attracted a large number of contestants who have entered
their names for the competition. The
class of talent that is coming forward
is exceptionally good, and the public
may look forward to having a week's
I amusement of an extraordinary character.    The  contest will  be  decided
by vote taken in the theatre at each
performance and the lady or gentleman  registering the largest  number
I of votes at the end of the week (Sat-
lurday, June 4th), will be declared the
Iwinner of the $75.00 prize—a ladies'
Inecklace or gentleman's gold watch.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Table Manners
By TOM-TIT
There is a good deal of controversy
going on in Victoria just now about
the correct way to lay a dinner table.
Of course there are different kinds of
dinner tables, in the same way that
there are different kinds of diners,
and some are laid correctly and
others are not. Sometimes these matters seem to crop up and become a
theme of interest for no known reason or cause. Whatever the reason is,
as it appears to be a source of interest, it might perhaps be well to
discourse on the subject and quote a
few authorities on this topic. A dinner table, say, for twelve people
should be laid with the white table
cloth covering the entire table top.
Table centres are not, now, used. The
cloth should be clean and free from
spots or stains, which so annoy the
gourmet. The knives should be laid
on the right hand side of the diner
and not stuck downwards in a bowl
or dish; the forks forming the other
side of the • hollow square within
which the plate reposes. If sweets
are served a spoon and fork should
be placed at the top, and lengthwise
between the knives on the right and
the forks on the left. The cutlery
should be clean and if the spoons are
bright enough to use as a mirror all
the better. It is not considered good
manners to tap the table with a
spoon whilst awaiting a dish, or playfully pat your escort's head (if he
should unfortunately happen to be
bald) and say: "Excuse me, I thought
it was an Ostrich egg." Bread should
be taken from a dish with the fingers
and not by digging a fork into it,
nor is it customary in polite society
to wipe one's knife on the bread before putting it into the butter. A
knife should always be provided for
the  butter.    Whilst  eating the  fork
goes into the mouth, not the knife.
Custard is generally eaten with a
spoon, not by picking up the plate
and letting it glide slowly into the
mouth and down the throat as some
epicures are so fond of doing. Salt
should also be taken with a spoon and
not sifted over the gravy. Sugar is
only served this way when strawberries are eaten. Try and catch the
hostess' eye before commencing to
eat, so many people eat everything
on their plate before the hostess has
begun and turn it upside down on the
table to attract the attention of the
waiter or waitress; this is not, strictly speaking, polite, as it greases the
cloth. Potatoes should be delicately
cut and not put into the mouth whole;
if your vis-a-vis speaks to you across
the table whilst you are digesting a
morsel of Xmas pudding make signs
to her that, your mouth is full by
gently raising your fork and placing
it on your head; this method of
"silent esteem" is now always usual
at the best dinner tables. After masticating your pudding which on no
account must be "gulped" or forced
down the throat with the back of a
fork, you signify your willingness to
speak by observing, quietly: "I am
now in a position to reply to the conversation." Should the lady, or gentleman, as the case may be, have forgotten the subject he, or she, were
going to speak about, whilst waiting,
you usually politely observe: "Have
you noticed the excellence of the
pickled pork," or "This ham is well
cured," thus giving them time to
overcome their well-bred confusion.
Should your dining partner swallow
a fiash-bone and commence to cough,
on no account slap him violently on
the back; this is an old time remedy
which has long been abandoned; the
custom now is to pour a little sweet
oil down his back or tickle the lobe
of his ear with an asparagus tip, remarking jocularly, "There, there,
you'll soon be alright again," or
soothingly, but sotto voce, "Try a
drop of gin, old dear," the endearing
phrase "Old dear" is not (as it might
appear) lacking in good taste nor is
it a surplus of familiarity, but it is
intending to convey to the sufferer
your apparent unconcern as to any
alarming symptoms. Should he get
worse have him removed by the
nearest flunkey and lay him flat on
the drawing-room carpet and tickle
his nose gently with a feather steeped
in turpentine and treacle. In overcoming the natural shyness of debutantes at their first dinner party
one should observe to them before
sitting down  (that is, if you are so
fortunate as to take in a young and
pretty girl), "Be careful of sitting suddenly on a pin—it has a disquieting
effect." This gives them a sense of
security whilst dining with you as it
shows you are eager to minister to
their comfort and spare them pain.
Should you observe a hair in the soup
it is not customary to take it out
with the cheese knife; the correct way
is to borrow a corkscrew and twine
the offending hair round the screw,
then gently drop the corkscrew with
the hair attached behind your chair,
at the same time winking at the
nearest waiter who will stumble (if
he is a well trained servant) and in
doing so will drop a serviette over
the offending object, which, as he
recovers himself, he will gently remove from the floor and sedately
leave the room. Should you be so
unfortunate as to overturn the gor-
gonzola cheese which is kept nowadays chained to the table leg, say
nothing, but watch which way it is
making for, so that you will be in
time to intercept it before it does
any damage. Should you require
more champagne and the nearest
bottle is some distance from you, that
is supposing it is resting on the table,
do not say, "Will you kindly pass the
bubbly" but insinuate to your neighbour on the right or left that you
are interested in seals on bottles, or
affirm that the wire on the bottle is
made of silver, the bottle will then,
probably, be obtained for your inspection, when, if you are dexterous
and used to society dinners, you can
easily contrive to fill your soup plate
(should soup be the course) with the
generous vintage, by absent-mindedly
turning the bottle upside down to emphasize a point, you can then easily
carry off the contretemps which
would naturally occur, by observing,
"How lucky my plate was there or it
might have gone on the cloth"; during the adulation you would undoubtedly receive at not having spilt the
fluid on the cloth you, could go on
drinking your soup with a preoccupied air, and the rest of the diners
would not notice it was champagne in
the excitement of the moment. A few
more hints such as these might be
given but it is best to go to a Society
dinner party personally and take notes
on your shirt cuff or the back of the
menu card of anything which might
strike you as being unfamiliar.

VIOLETTA
Violetta clad in garments
Wy gauzy, snowy white
Gazed upon  the silvery water
From  the giddy mountain  height.
She was wondering if the roses
Which  were trailing down  the  slope
Bloomed for ever in that valley
Full of sunshine, full of hope.
Where the shadows soft, kept creeping
O'er  the water's placid face
And the swallows  swiftly wheeling
Winged  a  never  ceasing race.
Then she spied a water lily
All alone upon the pool,
Like a glistening water naaid,
Or a fleecy hall of wool,
Plunged she straightway In the water
Lost her garb of snowy white,
And emerging from the deepness
Nude,  bemoaned her sorry plight.
Till young Cupid lent a covering,
And tt fitted her so well
That you couldn't say she wore  one,
Perhaps she didn't, who can tell.
Changed she then her garb to Violet
Fickle,  little  elfin  sprite,
Now  ts  seen  in  mossy fragrance
Sometimes Violet, sometimes white.

Why Don't You Use
a Gas Range?
It is so convenient. It is always ready. You can
prepare a light luncheon or a large dinner with Gas
with very little trouble even on the hottest day, and
it is so clean to work with. You don't have to be
shovelling coal all day like a fireman. 'Tis cooking
makes the world go round, but let the stove be a
poor, out-of-date one and the world wobbles from bad
digestion.
You are most cordially welcome to visit our showrooms whether you desire to purchase or merely to
look. We will gladly explain the many advantages
of gas for cooking and heating purposes. Easy payments if desired.
Much time is wasted in chopping ' kindling" for coal
or wood stoves, and carrying dusty coal or ashes backwards and forwards. A kitchen where a gas stove is
in use is always tidy, should be spic and span. Quick
as a wink you have you fire without trouble of
building—turn off the gas tap and it is out;
drudgery, worry and money saved. The lower oven
in a Gas Range is a wonder-worker for roasts and
broilings; juices of the meat are retained; both sides
of a steak are broiled in four minutes at a trifling
expense. With coal half the juice is lost, the cost
is one-third more and the inconvenience, dirt and
worry can never be figured.

Another  company  recently  organized   for   operation   in   the   Portland
Canal   District  is  the  King  Edward
Mines Limited, non-personal liability.
The property owned by this company
comprises four claims on the Georgia
River, these claims having been purchased from the well known gentlemen,  Henry  Heisterman,  locator  of
Main   Reef  and   part   owner  of   the
Little   Wonder   Claims;   J.   Lydden,
one of the locators of The Red Cliff
Mines;   John  Peterson,  also  one  of,
the    locators of   Red Cliff,   and   W. j
Harrison, locator of The Bear River I
Canyon  property.    Thc claims  were !
staked  in   1906 and  as  they are  lo- j
cated less than  one mile from  deep I
water.   This   should  be  one  of  thc
first mines to ship ore from this district.      The  proposed  directors  are:
Colonel   A.   W,   Currie,   Commander
Fifth Regiment, C.A., Victoria, R.C.;

Welcome
The Rev. A. J. Doull, M.A., who
has arrived in the city to take up the
Rectorship of Christ Church Cathedral, has received a fitting and hearty
welcome from the Press. It is a
welcome which is deserved, for while
no one claims that Mr. Doull is a
brilliant genius or a pulpit orator he
is far more and far better than cither,
for he is that rarest of all clerics in
this pleasure seeking age a faithful
parish priest and a faithful expounder
of the gospel. The writer enjoyed
the privilege of attending Mr. Doull's
church in Westmount on many occasions between 1900 and 1903 ancl
has no hesitation in saying that Christ
Church Cathedral is fortunate in having secured a Rector of such intclec-
tual attainments, such a Christian
spirit and such conspicuous devotion
to duty. Tf Mr. Doull receives the
whole soul, sympathetic co-operation
of his people thc Church of England
will bc immeasurably strengthened
and its influence increased in Victoria.
As a matter of reference it may be
well to append an official list of Mr.
Doull's previous incumbencies:

College. Oxford. R.A. (3rd class

Stewart City
Next Tuesday the long looked for
sale of lots in Stewart City will take
place and the Auctioneer, Mr. Stewart
Williams, is already overloaded with
applications for plans and information. Letters by the hundred have
poured in from all parts of Canada,
and the United States, and it is safe
to say that there will be a record attendance and record prices. The interesting letter from Col. E. S. Topping which appeared a few days ago
in a local paper will be accepted by
all who know him as satisfactory evidence of the progress of the new
city of the North. Col. Topping says
Stewart City has come to stay ancl
that it will be a second Rossland. As
one of the original founders of Rossland he is in a position to know.
Farm, 34 acres cleared, the best of soil, excellent buildings, considerable stock, close to city, only $15,000.   Good terms.
13 acres, very good soil, nearly all cleared, new house well built,
large and good outbuildings, 4 miles from city, only $8,500.
500 acres on "Hardy Bay," the coming great industrial and shipping center of Vancouver Island.

Victoria Schools
Sir,—Whilst this subject of school
I teachers, etc., is open it might not
(be amiss to enquire into the system
lof examinations for passing at it ob-
Itains in Victoria. Here the children
lare elevated to a higher grade by two
|means:
1st. An examination by means of
Ipapers which are given by other
Iteachers;
2nd. By "Pulling up."
Now, for instance, the teacher in
tfo.   1   room   gives   the   examination
papers for No. 2 or 3, and vice versa.
Then the teacher of each room puts
the questions on the board, collects all
Tiooks (as for as they know) bearing
bn the questions, sees as far as possible that they are worked out, fairly,
Ind then the teacher who has given
lhe papers corrects the work done,
pronounces whether the pupils are to
le promoted or "put up" (which is
lhe way of making room for those
yho in their turn are being also pro-
noted or "put up").
Very   often    children   who   have
anked well during the term not always by fair means do not have to
tke the examination at all, but are
Iromoted on their merits (?), which
1 anything but fair to those who have
forked conscientiously.
/  cannot  there  be  proper  ex-
niners, who would at once detect if
lie    pupils    had    been    thoroughly
lught and had assimilated what they
lid been taught?
j Give the teacher a capitation grant,
a, as incentive.      Surely there are
of  well   educated  men   here,
ho could as examiners see at once
I a boy or girl should be promoted
a higher grade and effectually bar
rotten   system  of  "putting  up"
|pils into room after room until they
ach   the  top   and   are   pronounced
Jirough";   knowing   nothing   thor-
jghly in spite of all the hours spent
Istudy by them.    Ratepayers' money
Isted like dirty water and years lost,
py would gladly recall, when they
Jize what an unstable foundation
so-called    education    has.    A
use built on sand is solid in com
tison.   And then, Mr. Editor, they
II have every right to call us to ac-
lint for not trying to give them
lir rights.
There is a sense of fair play which
lere sadly lacking, both in work
play too, indeed it would appear
['If by fair you can't succeed
I Foul, foul, until you do," (or ap-
■     pear to do).
■Let us all remember—
we succeed—'tis not success
that we reach our goal;

Chantecler Jewelry is something

Every reader of Rostand—the
youngest "Immortal" ever admitted to the French Academy
and a poet who ranks only
second to our own Shakespeare,
will like to wear some souvenir
of his original and quaint conception, this great barnyard
