INNER HARBOUR RAILWAY—The
promoters of the Inner Harbour Railway have matured their scheme ancl
are preparing to go to the next session of
the Legislature for the necessary endorsation. This is one of the most ambitious
schemes which has ever been launched in
Victoria and is second only in importance
to the Breakwater project also now under
way. The Week has every desire to support a scheme which will undoubtedly do
much to develop the commercial interests
of the city and to perfect its transportation
facilities. It goes further ana concedes that
some such scheme is a necessary comple
ment to the projected Breakwater, and the
wharfage extensions contemplated. But
there is one essential point in which it differs from the promoters, and with respect
to which it has no doubt that the citizens
of Victoria will be found almost unanimously antagonistic. That is the intention
to carry the railway across the Causeway
and along the Embankment fronting the
Parliament Buildings. When the scheme
was first mooted the promoters declared
that this portion of the work would be
executed in such a manner that it would not
be an eyesore and would uot in any way
detract from the present aspect of the
water-front. There is only one way in
which such a result could be achieved; that
is by tunnelling or covering the railway for
the whole distance between the Post-office
corner and the C. P. R. Wharf. But the
plans which have now been published show
no such design. Instead, the road-bed of
the railway is shown all round the waterfront, without protection, and any freight
Cars passing over would present a full view.
As a matter of fact it is not feasible to
bury the railway except at enormous cost,
and The Week is convinced that the people
of Victoria will never consent to mar the
beauty of one of the finest esplanades and
water-fronts in the Dominion. To take this
stand is not to condemn the scheme, because,
as will presently be shown, there is a much
better way of answering every purpose
which the promoters have in view, and that
is to build a Bascule bridge from the extreme south-easterly point of the Songhees
Reserve to Laurel Point. The cost would
not exceed the expenditure necessary to
properly obscure the railway over the
Causeway. It would give a shorter and
more direct route from the terminals which
would be established on the Songhees Reserve to the Outer Wharf and Breakwater.
It would be just as easy to serve the waterfront with laterals, as by a circular railway, ancl the only portion of the waterfront which would be deprived of the railway would be the portion between the Post-
office and the C. P. R. Wharf which does
not require it. Moreover, it must be borne
in mind that if Victoria is to become, as
we all believe, a really great shipping port,
it will not be many years before a single
line of railway round the Inner Harbour
would be totally inadequate and if one line
of railway is now built it will be impossible
to resist the demand for a second line later
on. The view of Tlie Week is that tlie
railway should be built where it will best
serve the demands of the future, and in
any event must not be built where it would
greatly damage, if not destroy, one of the
finest assets of the city. The Week urges
that the City Council, who will have a
great deal to say in this matter, at once
approach the Provincial Government, who
are about to settle the question of terminals
on the Songhees Reserve, and endeavour to
arrange for a reservation of the right to
build a bridge in the position indicated
above and to retain the necessary approaches to it. If the thing be not done
now it can never be done, and while there
are other details in the Inner Harbour Railway scheme, such as the closing of street
ends upon which the citizens will have
something to say, the matter raised above is
of far greater importance than any other,
as upon its judicious settlement will depend
the acceptance or rejection of the whole
scheme by the citizens of Victoria.
STREET PAVING — Some rather
serious mistakes have been made in
connection with street paving in Victoria, ancl as time goes on the result of
these mistakes becomes more apparent.
The complaint has reference rather to organization than to the actual work itself.
At the present time, while most of the
streets in the centre of the city have been
paved, nearly all the outlets from the city
are blocked and in several important localities such as the neighbourhood of the Outer
Wharf, Fairfield Road, Esquimalt Road,
Douglas Street and Burnside Road traffic
of any kind is carried on under great difficulties. This condition would not have developed if those who had the mapping out
of the programme for the season's work
had looked a little further ahead. If, for
instance, the Worswick Company had been
allowed to pave the twenty odd streets in
the Fairfield region for which their tender
was the lowest, the Canadian Mineral Rubber Company would long ere this have completed their work in other sections of the
city which are now in an impassable condition. This was mistake number one. The
next mistake, quite as serious, was the blundering of someone in connection with the
passing of necessary by-laws. This held
up the work on man)' streets and the condition was aggravated by the neglect of the
Engineering Department to have the necessary mains laid in time for the Paving
Company to commence work. Now a third
condition has developed. On Kingston and
Ontario Streets the asphalt recently laid is
crumbling ancl wearing away. There is
little doubt that the whole of these two
streets, and possibly some others near by,
will have to be re-paved in the spring.
Presumably this will not involve tlie city in
any loss, because the ternis of the contract
compel the contractors to keep them in condition for some years. But it is none the
less regrettable that the defect should have
arisen. It is claimed that this is due to
the exceptional quantity of mud deposited
on the asphalt by heavy teams. Others say
that it is the result of improper or insufficient mixture of the asphalting material. If
so, the person to blame is the inspector,
who is paid by the city to see that thc
asphalt mixture at all times contains the
proper ingredients. However, the condition
of the paving is such that it will have to
be the subject of investigation ancl no doubt
the fault, whatever it is, will be discovered.
The intention of The Week in calling attention to these matters is that if possible
the Council shall be induced to make better
arrangements with respect to the carrying
out of future paving contracts. With so
much work unfinished it will be a mistake
to rush into new contracts at the present
time. There is plenty of work on hand to
keep the paving companies busy for at least
six months. Meanwhile, any future paving
schemes should be carefully mapped out, all
the preliminary work done and the Paving
Company turned loose only when the way
is clear for rapid execution of their work.
derers to make the necessary examination
for their estimates the Reservoir was emptied, at least it was emptied as far as possible, for the first condition revealed is
that the water lies a foot deep on the floor
in places whilst other portions stand up
some inches above water level. The plugholes which were discovered by the diver
to be leaking, ancl which were supposed to
have been plugged with ricli cement were
found to have been plugged with a mixture
of tar or pitch and clay. This mixture is
so soft that it can be dug out with the
fingers ancl crushed in the hand. The walls
of the Reservoir are badly cracked and
many of the joints between the panels leak.
Altogether the condition may be clescribed
as deplorable ancl in the opinion of the best
judges treatment of the most drastic character will be required. The Week lias no
desire to forecast the probable cost of these
repairs, except to say that it will certainly
reach the highest figure that has been mentioned, assuming always that it is decided
to make the repairs thorough. To do this
it will be necessary, after carefullv plugging all leakages, to put a layer of at least
three or four inches of cement on the floor
and an even greater thickness on the side
walls. However, this will be dealt with in
the tenders which will shortly be submitted.
The only object The Week has in detailing
the above facts is that the public may know
what the condition of the Reservoir actually
is, and how far from the truth all efforts
to minimise the defective workmanship now
revealed. It is too late for the city to secure
any satisfaction. The conditions have resulted from incompetency and neglect, ancl
there will be few people who will not agree
that tlie responsibility must be shared by the
engineer who had charge ancl the foreman
who was supposed to have supervised.
SEISMOLOGY—A reference to our
correspondence columns will show
that the sub-Committee appointed by
the Board of Trade six months ago has
been successful in securing Government recognition for the valuable seismological researches of Mr. F. Napier Denison. After
reporting to the Board of Trade the Committee made a special representation to the
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, ancl Mr.
G. II. Barnard, M. P. for Victoria, and Mr.
F. PL Shepherd, M. P. for Nanaimo, havc
recently pressed the matter upon the attention of the newly appointed Minister, the
Hon. J. D. I lazen. The result is shown in
the letters printed in current issue. The
Minister has granted an appropriation of
$2,000 to assist Mr. Denison in his work,
the money to be applied to the purchase of
suitable instruments lo enable him lo continue his observations in a thoroughly scientific manner. There is little doubt that the
character of Mr. Denison's work will be
emphasized by the additional facilities thus
afforded, and that the outcome will be that
the request of the Commissioners and the
Board of Trade for tlie establishment of a
Seismological Observatory in Victoria will
ultimately be granted.

(Continued on Page  15) THE WEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1911
The   management  of  the  Victoria
Theatre is to be congratulated on its
novel and brilliant idea for entertaining and at the same time instructing
the audience between the Acts.     In
many theatres the tedium of waiting
is  relieved  by  music,  but owing  to
some  hitch  in  which   I   believe  the
musical unions are concerned it has
been found impossible to fill  in the
intervals with orchestral strains.   Under the new system at present being
tried the audience is encouraged to
study American spelling.    Much has
been said and more has been written
regarding the advantages of phonetic
spelling  ancl  as  is  well   known  our
cousins on the other side of the Line
have  been  foremost in  the  field  of
progress.   In order   that   Victorians
may not lag behind but may also appreciate to the full the benefits whicii
the new orthography possesses a curtain filled with local advertising matter,  set forth  with  all the  vagaries
of the Rooseveltian spelling, is exhibited between the Acts.   On this the
American  advertising agent displays
the sensible method of spelling "Gov-
erment."    He  finds that there is  no
use for the "n" and so wisely leaves
it out.   In order to impress this upon
the public he omits it in four different
places.    On the whole it is not surprising perhaps to find that the spelling  of  this  word  differs  from  the
English version as much as does the
application   thereof   ill    the   United
States.    To  prove  that  there  is  no
connection between "acre" ancl "acreage"  the latter word is spelt "acer-
age."    The  superfluous  "y"  in  "formerly" is* banished and a  word appears which is neither adjective nor
adverb.    "Center"  with  an   "er"  occupies  the  most  prominent  position
on the curtain.   There arc many other
similar   eccentricities   displayed,   but
the above will  suffice  to  give  some
idea of the educational  scheme projected.    This is merely another step
in the Americanization of the Canadian stage and is one which  cannot
fail to meet with the approval of all
theatre-goers who patronise the playhouse with a loftier motive than that
of mere pleasure.
More than once a plea has appeared in these columns for lower steps
on all the street cars ancl some of the
latter arc now equipped with steps
whicii suit thc old and invalid. But
there are still many cars which offer
insuperable difficulties to those of the
community whose limbs have lost the
agility of youth. 1 am aware that
car shops are working over-time in
thc desperate rush to make and deliver cars fast enough, and here in
Victoria we have to possess our souls
in patience. At tlle same time a gentle
reminder to the Company may not
be out of season and 1 would urge
that as soon as possible all cars be
equipped with lower steps. The cars
with longitudinal scats at thc ends
whicii sometimes run on the Cook
Street route are examples of what
should bc, ancl when the day dawns
which sees all the street cars in Victoria similarly equipped a sigh of relief and thankfulness will go up from
many ladies ancl gentlemen who at
present find the getting in and out of
the cars a severe tax upon them.
*   *   *
The public convenience for whicii
I agitated for so many years is uow
open and one crying scandal is removed from Victoria. It seems to
me, however, that it is somewhat of
a pity that thc man in charge should
have heen chosen from the ranks of
those who hail from Sunny Italy.
There must bc in our midst many old
men who have worked for the city
during the hey-day of their youth and
who would be better employed wielding a pick and shovel. The polishing
and sweeping could be capably done
by a man who was too feeble to obtain outside work and doubtless there
are many   such   who   would   have
jumped at the chance. Whilst on this
subject 1 might remark that my words
anent the public convenience at Foul
Bay were evidently read by some person in authority. The place has been
shut up ancl locked ancl whether it be
tidy and sanitary or not does not
much matter now as it is no longer
open to the public, . It seems a pity,
however, because when all is said
anel done an institution of this nature
loses much of its usefulness if it is
kept locked.
For some reason or other coincidence is supposed to have a long arm;
at any rate one always talks about
"the long arm of coincidence," and
I am inclined to think that there is
much truth in the phrase; consider
the following and see if it does not
go far towards proving the fact.
There is a little paper printed in England for a penny, beloved of schoolboys and, for some reason or another
whicii I have never solved, parsons.
It is called "Answers" ancl is the
product of the prolific firm of Harms-
worth. Now "Answers" is a paper
on which I have never set eyes since
I left school, but the other day I
happened to be waiting in a bookstall for a car, ancl idly turned over
the leaves of the nearest periodical
(that this was scandously dishonest
I admit) which happened to be the
auburn weekly in question. Whilst I
was thus engaged my eye was caught
by a paragraph which struck me as
being so applicable to the fair city of
Victoria that I found a clime and
bought the paper. The paragraph to
whicii I refer is printed below.
Readers are invited to peruse it with
care ancl to have their own opinion as
to whether the originals of the characters were or were not taken from
the n..mber of our respected Councillors:
was indeed excellent and a crowded
house on Thursday night testified to
the appreciation whicii was felt. Although, of course, it is the boys
whom one went to see and whom
one applauded, it would not be fair
to close any paragraph dealing with
the performance without commending
the self-sacrificing work of the gentlemen who have associated themselves
so whole-heartedly with the Boy
Scout Movement and who have at
all times been willing to give up their
time and energy to making it a success. Not only the boys, but the
producers have worked hard to make
"The Cruise" a happy one ancl it is
satisfactory to be able to say that
they have "made good."
You know what a "dodger" is. If
you don't you are luckier than most
people. It is a piece of paper containing news which you don't want
to know and it is shoved into your
hand when you are busy thinking
about something else. However,
thtre are times when a "dodger"
comes out whicii bears really interesting information and the other day
one came into my hand. It dealt
with the barber's shop lately opened
in the basement of the Brown Block
by Messrs. Van Siecklen & Ritz, commonly known as "Van" and "Fred."
I think that I may say that this is
the most comfortable institution of
its kind in the city ancl I am known
as a man who usually takes a good
deal of trouble to get what is most
comfortable. I understand that the
baths there are also up to the high
standard of the most of the fittings,
but as 1 am the fortunate possessor
of a real bath in the house where I
abide I cannot speak of these from
experience. All that I know is that
the barber's chair at Fred & Van's
is a most excellent place for a

The Victoria Harbour Railway
Company will ask at the next session
of the Legislature for an extension
of time within whicii to commence
the construction of its railway ancl
to spend fifteen per cent, of its capital. The Company is capitalised at
one million dollars, of whicii $250,000
has been subscribed by some of the
leading business men of the City of
Victoria.
The concern is entirely a local one,
and is not tied up in any way to any
other corporation or individual. The
Company has been dealing with the
City Council for a number of months
with reference to its plans, and has
now about arrived at an understanding with the Council with regard to
that part of its plans lying to the
east of the Harbour. Until the Songhees Reserve question is settled by
the Government the Company can do
nothing with regard to its plans on
that side of the Harbour; and, since
it has to commence construction, etc.,
within one year from the date of its
incorporation, which is the 15th day
of May, 1911, the Company, as a mat
ter of precaution has to apply for the
necessary extension.

Mark Hambourg
It was but a scanty audience that
(met in the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday night to hear Mark Ham-
Ibourg, rightly styled the successor to
IAnton Rubinstein, who arrived here
[fresh from his many triumphs on the
■ Continent. For two hours the audi-
[ence sat spell-bound whilst the emin-
lent pianist entranced them with his
[performance. This being the centen-
Inial of Liszt, Mark Hambourg specialised on that composer and perhaps
Ihis best work was clone in interpreting the notes of that great master.
|But where all was excellent it would
be hypercritical to make comparisons.
The Fortune Hunter
On Monday night the Victoria
Iriieatre was the scene of as pretty
li little comedy as has appeared on
[lie local stage for many months.   A
impossible to commend "Three
Twins" as it appeared in Victoria. Iu
the first place, as is so often the case,
there was not a sign of a singing-
voice amongst the performers. In the
second place, with one solitary exception, there was not one catchy air,
and in tlle third and last place, there
was only one member of the cast, Mr.
George Ebner, who had the slightest
conception of the duties of an actor.
Ernest Geyer had a big opportunity to
shine as a comedian in the role of the
dyspeptic general, but his light, if he
possesses any, was hidden under a
very big bushel. A word of commendation is clue the scenic effect of
the electric swing at the close of the
first Act, but that word of commendation is all that can be said in the
way of praise.

Recitals
On Tuesday evening Mr. George
B. Williams gave a Shakespearean in
the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A,
Mr. Williams claims to have had a
long experience; he is a goocl elocutionist ancl a fair reciter, but he is not
equal to dealing with Shakespeare.
Anything less like Falstaffe than his
presentation it would be hard to
imagine; in fact Mr. Williams is not
in the class of those dramatic, reciters
who are entitled to attempt the task-
he undertook. Under the circumstances it is not necessary to attempt
any detailed criticism. He furnished
an evening's entertainment to those
who were not students of Shakespeare ancl who were not sufficiently
experienced to be either exacting or
critical, and that is the best that can
be said for Mr. Williams' so-called
Shakespearean recital.
The Empress Theatre
Harry Thomson is the big hit at the
Empress this week; he is a delightful
fellow ancl makes a splendid mayor.
Victoria might do worse than offer
him the job for life. Miss Buckley's
dogs display an amazing amount of
canine talent ancl must represent a
Victoria might do worse than offer
vast amount of patience ancl devotion
expended in their training. Rawson
& Frances have been presenting a
pretty little sketch whicii gives the
former an opportunity to disclose the
possession of a tenor voice of exquisite tone. Miss Belle Dixon as a
comedienne and Newell & Niblo as
instrumentalists complete a very
palatable bill.
The Crystal Theatre
The original films representing
Dante's Inferno modelled on the well-
known Dore pictures was the piece
de resistance at the Crystal at the
beginning of the week, and, judging
by the crowds which were to be seen
waiting an opportunity to enter, the
management must have had as little
cause for complaint as the patrons.
The Majestic Theatre
The management of the Majestic
Theatre have been showing a full
line of drama and comedy this week
together with one or two films of an
educational character ancl the weekly
pictures of the world's events.
Romano's Theatre
An amusing film showing the
triumph of a small girl over her
governess kept the house in good
humour on Wednesday night at Romano's. A film descriptive of Northern Italy was also much enjoyed.
Now-a-days it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a good seat at
Romano's, so popular is this moving-
picture house.
A Dramatic Recital
On Tuesday next the Alexandra
Club will be the scene of a dramatic
recital given by Miss Eugenie Fox,
who has already made such a favourable impression on Victoria audiences.
Miss Fox has achieved considerable
success in London where she has appeared at the Queen's Hall, St.
George's Hall and the Palace Theatre.
In choosing for her recital Dickens'
ever-popular "Christmas Carol," Miss
Fox has made a wise selection and
the hope is expressed that there will
be a large number in attendance on
the evening in question. Assisting the
reciter will be Miss Muriel Hall, a
young Victoria pianist who has just
completed a successful season at the
Playhouse, London, with Mr. Cyril
Maude. Miss Hall has made a specialty of drawing-room entertainments and on Tuesday next will contribute some of her musical sketches.
The Trial Scene from "Pickwick
Papers"
On Friday, December 15th, the following members of the Berean Bible
Class will present at the A. O. U. W.

On Magazines
By Bohemian
This is an age of magazines and
magazine reading, or perhaps it would
be more correct to say, magazine
skimming, because no one can read
the average magazine and keep out of
a lunatic asylum. I have sometimes
wondered whether I could count up
more magazines or more new brands
of whiskey in the course of a year; I
am still in doubt. All I know is that
every month some cover appears on
the bookstall to tickle the palate.
I think it would be a very fair
critic who would write off ninety per
cent, of the magazines as worthless,
except for the purposes of time-killing. There was a time when I foolishly supposed that thc publishers
put them out in order to supply the
public with reading matter. I have
long ago learnt that the main object
is to pad out a sufficient number of
reading columns to carry advertising
matter. The magazine, like the newspaper, has capitulated to the commercialism of the age.
I am a great lover of the short
story, lt has no equal as recreative
reading. Such stories as distinguished
"Blackwood" and "The Gentleman's
Magazine" years ago were often entitled to bc classed as literature.
Then "Cassell's" and "The Idler" of
those days could always be counted
on to yield one or two striking stories
in every issue.
Crossing the water I find that the
best short stories that have appeared,
at any rate during the past twenty-
five years, can be credited to "Harper's" and "Lippincott," and today
outside of these 1 cannot name a
single American or Canadian magazine which can be relied upon to yield
even a grain of wheat to the bushel
of chaff.
and after these I will name "The
Smart Set," because, although the average of its contents is not high, it
somehow or another manages to get
a smart story in nearly every month.
Every magazine puts out a Christmas Number, and I find on referring
to the bill of contents that it presses
into its service a whole host of literary hacks to write Christmas stories.
As their usual vogue is the "cowboy"
or "detective" line the result is appalling, and I do not hesitate in conclusion to advise my readers to turn
to the English illustrated papers if
they want to read a genuine old-fashioned Christmas story.

The Early History of Vancouver
Island
Written Specially for the Week
ty Gilbert Malcolm Sproat
In looking over a large number of
magazines month by month 1 find
that the same writers contribute to
perhaps half-a-dozen, and not infrequently the same stories are running
in three of four magazines concurrently. The demand seems to be for
sensationalism. I fear that "The
Strand" is responsible for starting
this vogue with the "Sherlock
Holmes" series. Now-a-days it is being worked to deatli and the detective
story in some form or another is a
leading feature in most of the magazines.
Next to this 1 think one may place
thc dialect stories, a circumstance
which puzzles mc exceedingly. 1 can
only suppose that the editor thinks
that in any event dialect gives local
colour. 1 suppose also it leans a little
in the direction of "human interest,"
but the trouble is that many of these
stories have nothing but the dialect to
recommend them, and it is a poor recommendation. Oue of the best dialect stories ever written was "Mrs,
Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," but it
owes its charm to the story and not
to the dialect.
While this general characterization
of tlie magazines must be admitted
to be true, it also happens that occasionally one does find a gem buried
under a great deal of trash. I unearthed just such a story in thc
Christmas Number of "The Story-
Teller." At any rate I think it is almost a gem, and am willing to put it
forward as a specimen of a short
story which will always be welcome,
and which helps to redeem any magazine from a charge of utter worth-
lessness. It will appear in our
Christmas  Number.
"Lippincott"    always    has    good
stories;   "Harper's" still occasionally,
The Home Government having created, as I have shown, a medley in
its grant of Vancouver Island to the
Hudson's Bay Company, and in the
appointment of Blanshard and Douglas under novel gubernatorial conditions, found itself, soon afterwards,
confronted with the charge of having illegally established the colony
without representative institutions.
On referring this charge for the
opinion of its official legal advisers
(called in England the "Law Officers
of the Crown"), the charge was declared by them to be true. It was
not a question of constitutional
policy, but of legal right. The case
was this, briefly stated:
For practical reasons, in the starting of  colonies generally,  the function of initiatory administration and
legislation was entrusted, at first, to
the Sovereign in Council, whether the
acquisition was through settlement or
conquest.      The    duration    of    this,
which is the embryo of the familiar
term "Crown Colony," was according
to the circumstances, in each case,—
for instance, obligatory conditions in
the    acquisition,    and    whether    the
colony was, or became,  distinctively
British  as to population,  or the  influential    part   thereof,    and,   again,
whether  it  had  a military  or  naval
character.    Hence the remarkable diversities in our colonial governments,
to be  seen up to a late period, and
in the nature of things, still, largely
apparent.     British    North    America,
however, in some respects, was in a
class of its own, segregated by settlement-facts, ard by special legislation
towards  the  close  of the   18th  century.   The Home Government, strictly, had not the right of internal legislation    in    the    American    colonies,
settled,  and mainly peopled,  by the
British,   but   it   was   permitted,   by
general opinion, to exercise, there, as
elsewhere,   an  external   right  of   regulating commerce    and    navigation.
The reader,   I   daresay,    remembers
that it was the attempt to exercise
the power of imposing taxation, asserted by Act 6, Geo. 3, cap. 12, that
led to the loss of the American (now
U. S.) colonics—the remedial, apologetic  Declaratory Act of the  Home
Parliament, Act.  18,  Geo. 3, cap.  12,
coming too late to undo the mischief.
That   Declaratory   Act   guaranteed
thc unalterable right  of property to
colonists, and renounced the claim of
taxation on the part of the King and
Parliament  of Great  Britain,  in  "all
the   Colonies,   Provinces   or   Plantations in North America."    It applied,
consequently, to all colonies in British North America remaining to the
Crown after thc close of the Rebellion in 1784, as well as to those that
might  bc  formed, later, in such  remaining continental dominion.   It did
not   matter  whether,   in   the   chosen
area, settlement was sparse or populous;   the law, so far as unamended,
was  imperative.    Authority  to  levy,
and apply taxation was declared to be
General Assemblies" of such Colonies,
Provinces or Plantations.   The Home
Government,  consequently,  found itself in this position, in the Vancouver
Island case;  it had either to abrogate
the colony, or give it representative
institutions.    The  Whig  administration   of   Lord  John   Russell  was   in
power at home, from July 6, 1846, to
February 27,  1852:   then the Tories,
under the  Earl of Derby, had their
short innings to December 28, of the
latter  year,  followed  by  the   Whig,
or Liberal, administration of the Earl
of Aberdeen up to February 10, 1855,
when   Palmerston,  nominally  a  Liberal, was  put in to retrieve  alleged
mismanagement of the Crimean War.
But  our   affairs  out  here   were   not
made party questions, in those times,
at home,  though, being, then, much
about the Commons, as London correspondent of Provincial newspapers,
I  remember hearing censure of the
Hudson's   Bay  Co.    The   immediate
issue was, that, in order to cure illegality,  an  elective  assembly for the
Island  was,  in  1855,  ordered  to  be
convened.    It  met  in   1856,  and,   in
the    opening    speech    of    Governor
Douglas, he, without a smile, assured
those present that the occasion was
the   first   instance   of   representative
institutions in the infancy of a British Colony.    I daresay he believed it.
The  political  system  established,  of
course,  was not "Responsible"  Government.    It was, generally, on the
lines of the Canada Act of 1791, and
it  lasted   until   1866,   in   whicii   year
the Islanders were merged with the
mainlanders, and subjected to the stiff
"Crown  Colony" rule existing there.
That   happened,   exactly   when   thc
British   Parliament  was   establishing
the  modern  Federated  Dominion  of
Canada,   with  the  amplest   statutory
right of  self-government.    So far as
I  am  able  to judge,  the  Vancouver
Island Assembly   was   a   competent
body during the  10 years of its existence,   certainly   not   surpassed,   in
the individual quality of its members,
by any Pacific Seaboard political, or
municipal, body, to the present time.
The foregoing shows that the British  Colonial system, on this continent,   was   really  liberal   when   fairly
applied.   The United  States practice
in   dealing   with   young   settlements
was, and is, harsher.   Alaska, for instance, after more than half a century, with a population of 64,000, of
whom 45,000 are Americans, and with
imports  and exports aggregating, in
1910, more than fifty million dollars,
has not yet got  an  elective  legislature.    "True,"  said  an   American  to
me lately, "I do not defend my government, but, please remember, that
"your   British   government,   after   10
"years,  cancelled representative government  in  Vancouver   Island,  and
"bear   in   mind,   too,   the  very   long
"pupilage    of    what    you    call    the
"North-west Territories  of  Canada."
My reply was, that the people of the
Island asked the Home  Government
to do what it did, and, in the case of
the  Territories  referred to, the  Canadian,   not the  Home  Government,
had control.
colony. True, he was well off, and
the position was dignified, but, on
the other hand, he was in his prime,
a man born to rule, with his capacities fortified by some experience. He
quickly got the opportunity he desired, as one effect of the discovery
of gold in paying quantities on the
mainland. Some of the broader aspects of that aftermath, I will deal
with in my next, starting with the
above Select Committee's Report.
Voluntary Acts and
their Consequences
(Written for The Week by C. B. S.)
The reader, now, has before him
(witness Admiral Moresby), some account of tiie initial period of Douglas' service under the Crown, and,
from, my point of view, the circumstances of the grant of representative
government to the Vancouver Island
colony. A third event of importance,
in the fifties, awaits further mention,
namely, the 1857 Select Parliamentary
Committee on Hudson's Bay Company's affairs, which, in its Report,
dealt with the Island Colony as part
of the larger subject. The Company,
so far as it was concerned, realized,
in that year, the much complained
of absurdity of the dual position of
Douglas as Chief Factor and Governor, (anticipating the decisive remedial action of the Home Government, on that matter, in 1858).
Alexander Grant Dallas, who had
been in Jardine, Matheson & Co.'s
firm at Shanghai, before becoming a
member of the Company's London
Board, and President of its Council in
North America, arrived at Victoria,
7th May, 1857, practically, lo supersede Douglas as head of the Company's Western Department. This
was a setback for Douglas, who now
had little before him but the govern
in the respective "General Courts orjorship  of a  laggard,  thinly  peopled
Voluntary acts and the individual
enterprises of independent Britons
form the foundation of the British
Empire. Foreigners who try to eke
out the secret of our success as the
first colonizing power of the world at
the present day throw up the riddle
with the remark, "they muddle
through somehow," and satisfy them
selves that it is all "luck"; they won't
credit us with knowing how to "play
the game." King John wouldn't play
the game but the barons got at him
with Magna Charter and so the nobles
had their innings. Charles 1 did not
play the game but Cromwell headed
the Commons, Charles lost his head
and so this time it was the Commons
who rescued the country, while quickly gliding over the most unpleasant
episode in England's history we must
credit our greatest Commoner with
the great good he did for the country
and her classes. Within the last few
years Paul Kruger defied the suzerainty of our Monarch and issued an
ultimatum which did much to prove
the strength of the bonds of Empire
of oversea dominions who by their
voluntary acts assisted the Mother
Country to settle the troubles consequent upon that ultimatum. Since
then events have developed apace.
Confidence in self-government granted to oversea dominions has been
tested by Laurier, his test was a mistake but the object lesson was a good
one; the people had their say and the
people know best.
Ntw Zealand and Australia have
commenced their schemes for their
own defence. Canada is maturing her
plans for her security. The Boy
Scouts first enrolled are growing into
men, they do not live to fight but they
will fight to live. This last, perhaps
greatest voluntary act of all, is likely
to do more towards safeguarding our
Empire's integrity than any other.
Who knows what it may result in;
it must have a more powerful foothold in a country which has not committed itself to compulsory service,
and so the youth and manhood will
imbibe discipline by intuition, and
their own voluntary act, far more
than that discipline enforced by law.
What are the consequences of these
voluntary acts of individuals? They
have saved for the growing population of the Mother Country habitable
areas. The "wooden walls of England" are things of the past; steel
and coal are wanted now—it is only
true economy to let trade follow its
own inclinations; the little Loudon
has lost, other places have gained immensely in proportion. Whatever the
expenses of the Boer War may have
been in lives and money, the conse
quent gain has been probably greater
to the Empire.
Oh yes, we muddle through somehow, but we don't stop still—we are
learning to play the game better than
ever. Our barons settled their affairs with their King, so did our Commons; and just recently our barons
have settled their affairs peaceably
with our Commons, whilst a just aud
energetic Monarch crowns himself
among them and by his own voluntary act goes forth with his consort
to crown himself again in India,
where we know he will be received
with the true rejoicings due to him
and still greater rejoicing on his return. We don't doubt his safe passage, in spite of two European powers
being in conflict though his sea path
lies across their theatre of war.
Death of Mr. W.
Clark Russell
We regret to announce the death
at Bath on Wednesday, November
Sth, of Mr. W.* Clark Russell, the
well-known novelist, at the age of
sixty-seven.
He had been a great invalid for
years, and since last April had been
bed-ridden. He passed peacefully
away in his sleep. He leaves a
widow, three daughters, and one son.
Mr. Clark Russell was born in New
York, but he was a thorough Englishman.    At the age of thirteen he entered the merchant service, but after I
eight years he abandoned a sea life |
for literature.   He had been practically a complete cripple for ten years or I
more, and attributed his bad health
to  the rough  life he experienced  at |
sea as a boy.
In his later days he could not walkl
or even write; he simply lay on al
couch and dictated to his son. Fori
some years after his retirement froml
sea he worked for the daily Press,!
and it was not until he was thirty-]
one that he published his first suc-[
cess, "John Holdsworth's Chiefl
Mate."
A year later came "The Wreck ofl
the Grosvenor," which made hisl
name, although he himself said it was|
his worst novel. From that period
he wrote almost incessantly—novels)
articles, and latterly poetry.
Most of his novels were based orl
actual happenings to himself, and the)
motive of "The Wreck of the Gros-j
venor" was supplied by the court)
martial which he witnessed of
dozen seamen who mutinied becausJ
of the wretched food supplied t<l
them.
Mr. Clark Russell's father, Mij
Henry Russell, it is interesting tq
note, was the author of "Cheer, boys]

New Wine in Old Bottles
The Relations of the Church and the
New Democracy
Last week some reference was made
n these columns to a notable address
ecently delivered by the Lord Bishop
)f London at Stoke-on-Trent. The
iddress derives additional importance
rom the fact that it was a carefully
>repared deliverance to the Church
Congress and therefore may fairly be
issumed to have been prepared with
ill the usual care and earnestness
which characterize his Lordship, and
which have made him one of the most
nfluential members of the Episcopate.
In this address the Bishop set himself the task of presenting to his
learers what he conceived to be a
true picture of the rising tide of
democracy today. No one can com-
_lain that the subject is not one of
jverwhelming importance and, in its
elation to the Church, it is easily the
nost vital topic that can engage thc
ittention of her representatives.
Many   men   of   lesser   importance
lave bewailed the diminishing influ-
nce of the Church and have frankly
dmitted that   in    many   respects it
ails to satisfy thc requirements of the
>resent day, and especially that it is
ot "in touch" with the people.   Thou-
ands of sermons have been preached
nd thousands of articles have been
/ritten for the purpose of explaining
true inwardness of this condition.
many causes have been assigned
at it would be no light task even to
hedule them.   A few of the  most
ommonly quoted  are  the  rapid in-
ease of wealth among the industrial
isses;  increased worldliness among
classes; the antagonism of Capital
id Labour, and the very wide-spread
inviction of working-men that the
urches have as a whole been more
vourable  to  the  former  than  the
tter.
Perhaps, however, it may be con-
ded that Bishop Ingram is an auth-
ity; maybe, one of the highest auth-
ities who could  be quoted on the
subject, because, in addition to being
a learned and distinguished prelate,
he has been a zealous and successful
parish priest and slum worker. He
therefore comes to a consideration of
his subject with what may fairly be
regarded as a complete equipment.
His explanation of the situation, although it runs to four columns, is
pithily condensed into thc one sentence with which he commences his
discourse. "Putting new wine into old
bottles," and his solution lies in the
reversal of this policy, for he advocates putting "new wine into new
bottles."
It is not necessary to follow the
expository portion of his address in
which he analyzes the meaning of the
well-known text which forms the basis
of his address. It will be more profitable to outline the application, and
to see in what respect he considers
the old rule is being followed disadvantageous^ and the new rule
should be applied.
The Bishop's argument is that the
Gospel is still "the Power of God to
Salvation"; that it is as young, as
strong, as vigorous as ever; that this
condition is aptly paraphrased in
Canon Twells' well known lines:
"Thy touch has still its ancient power
No word from Thee can fruitless fall."
The fault is not in the "Word," but
in the "earthen vessels" to which the
treasure   is   committed.
Nor does he concede what so many
fault-finding critics contend, that the
weakness is in the character of the
men themselves, but holds that it is
rather in their methods. The Christian clergy and laity are as sincere, as
devout and as desirous of spreading
Christianity as in any preceding age,
but they have not developed the intelligence to devise "new bottles." In
other  words  they  have  not  adapted
themselves to altered conditions.
The age of subserviency and of
serfdom has passed. The world is being educated; men no longer sit with
their mouths wide open eagerly catching and swallowing every crumb that
is thrown their way. Now-a-days,
they think for themselves. The
didactic utterance of the pulpit often
falls on deaf ears in the pew; the
congregation refuses to take everything for granted; the dogma of infallibility has long ago been exploded.
There is a sense in which all men
now-a-days "come from Missouri."
They want "to be shown" and this
disposition to enquire and search is
not confined to the grown-ups. Even
the boys and girls are apt to receive
dogmatic assertion with a contemptuous "Yah!"
The Bishop's contention is that in
consequence of these altered conditions it is impossible to deny that
there is a strong new wine working in
the hearts and brains of thousands
today. The first effect of this exhilarating draught is that men believe
there should be an equality of opportunity, and that grinding poverty and
unspeakable conditions of life should
come to an end. They are tired of
hearing of a heaven in another world
and believe that one was promised to
them in this.
This is the dream which is at the
bottom of the great Labour movement and no doubt lies at the root of
that unrest which is mainly responsible for the development of modern
Socialism.
Many people take a pessimistic view
of the future because of the extreme
action of some Labour leaders and
most Socialists, but the Bishop does
not so misread these great movements. He emphasizes their avowedly
and definitely religious aspects and
quotes extensively from the recent addresses of well-known Labour leaders
in support of his contention. In this
connection he specially mentions Mr.
Thomas, M. P. for Derby; Mr. Peters,
the national agent of the Labour
party; Mr. Albert Stanley, M. P. for
North Staffordshire;   Mr. Clynes, M.
P. for North-east Manchester; Mr.
Adamson, M. P. for a great mining
constituency in the North; Mr. Parker, M. P. for Halifax; Mr. Lands-
bury, Socialist M. P. for Bow and
Bromley, and lastly the great Labour
Premier of New South Wales.
The utterance of the latter is so emphatic and significant as to be worth
quoting verbatim. Hc says: "We who
believe from the bottom of our hearts
that the nation and the people are going to be greater than formerly they
were, place our reliance on God's
Holy Word. We honestly believe
that a Supreme Being is governing
the Universe and we see in the nations of the world a gradual evolution—it may be slow, because it must
not get ahead of the people; but it is
sure from one end of civilization to
another."
The Bishop contends with justice
that men who speak like this must
be religious men and that they must
be animated by Christian ideas. The
Bishop sees in such men the great
hope of the rising democracy.
He then proceeds to consider the
very pertinent question, why are not
such men and their adherents members of the Church of England?
Why has the Church so little influence when there is a great industrial
upheaval, such as a strike? Why do
not these religious men turn, as they
naturally and logically should, to the
Church? The Bishop believes that
the first reaso.n is that, consciously
or unconsciously, the Church is still
influenced by class prejudice. No one
has a better right to make such a
statement, and the Bishop in making
it refers to his experience as a curate.
He declares that the clergy are
largely drawn from one class, and the
laymen, who have leisure to attend a
Church Congress, are entirely drawn
from that class. They are apt to like
the poor so long as the poor "keep
in their proper place," and he emphatically declares that there is a very
true sense in which English people
are equally as sensitive to the subtle
"caste" feeling as the people of India, and that it presents au intangible
fence between the Church and the
toiling millions of the people.
His next point is that this "class
prejudice" neutralises the work of the
Church, and the only way to win the
masses is by showing practical sympathy. Practical sympathy must go
beyond vague generalities, it must go
beyond conceding the right of every
person, however, poor, to education,
it must spell shorter hours, better
wages, protection, especially for our
girls, the saving of women from degrading labour in factories and
smithies and the rescue of all mothers
from toil outside the home, which is
only another way of saying that the

Victoria, B. C,
30th November, 1911.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—I crave your indulgence, realizing that your paper is always the
happy medium towards remedying defects in general conditions of life, and
the conduct of municipal affairs in
Victoria.
I don't think there is a man, woman or child resident in Victoria at
the present time who is not aware
of the deplorable condition of the
streets; never in my life have I seen
such a horrible quagmire,—not even
in any of the villages in the West
of Ireland—where the roads are in
such a deplorable state, as that portion of the city highway on Government Street flanking the site of the
Parliament Buildings.
But a moment ago, I heard the
siren of one of the motor wagons of
the Fire Department, and, upon going to the window, saw the vehicle
embedded in this alleged public highway over its axles. After much difficulty, though indeed, in a very short
space of time, the capable driver had
backed the machine out on the road,
more towards the car-line, and was
enabled, with great difficulty, to get
on his way, to a fire I presume.
I could not help but feel indignant
at the sorry plight the firemen were
in, ancl I am sure that their feelings

SEISMOLOGICAL  OBSERVATORY
The following correspondence has
passed between the Hon. J. P. Hazen,
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, and
]   ■ Mr. F. H. Shepherd, Member for Na
naimo, and is published by permission of Mr. F. Napier Denison:
November 2t)th, 1911,
F. Napier Dennison, Esq.,
Meterological Department,
Victoria, B.C.
My dear Mr. Dennison:
I am happy to inform you that as
a result of an interview with the Hon.
the Minister of Marine and Fisheries
with regard to your application for
financial assistance in thc purchase of
self-recording instruments necessary
in your researches in the relation ot
Seismological disturbances to coal
mine explosions, Mr. Barnard and 1
have succeeded in getting a grant of
$2,000 to be applied to researches on
Vancouver Island.
1 am enclosing a copy of a leiter
sent to the Hon. the Minister which
is self explanatory.
You will see that 1 put the mattei
before him in such a manner that
should he have occasion to refer it
to the particular branch of the Department governing this line of research that they can have no possible
objection to the grant, in fact the
understanding is that the grant will
be made so that you can avail yourself of it without unnecessary trouble.
With very kindest regards, believe
me, yours very truly,
FRANCIS 1-1. SHEPHERD.
November 25th, l_Hl.
The Hon. J. D. Hazen,
Minister of Marine and Fisheries,
Ottawa.
My clear Mr. Hazen,
1 I beg to enclose copies of corres
pondence and other data touching re
searches relative to the co-relation between seismic disturbances ancl coal
mine explosions by Mr. F. Napier
Dennison of the Meterological Office
at Victoria,  B. C.
These enclosures are self explanatory, and 1 wish to add that as a
Mining Engineer and as late Chief
Inspector of Mines for the Province
of British Columbia, I am heartily in
accord with Mr. Dennison's work upon this subject.
This is a subject upon which many
valuable papers have been given to
the mining world by able European
writers, and I made a collection of
these papers some time ago and pave
them to Mr. Dennison in order to
assist him in his very valuable researches.
As an example of the future value
of the research to mining men, 1 beg
to vouch for the fact, that at the recent explosion at Extension, B. C,
where 32 lives were lost, the Seismograph at Victoria, 70 miles from the
mine, at the exact hour of the explosion recorded a district disturbance.
The Western Fuel Company at Nanaimo, arc co-operating with Mr.
Dennison, by kindly taking periodical
readings of a seismograph placed underground, and it is in this connection
that I beg to request thc co-operation
of the Department. The instruments
should be self-recording, and in order
that Mr. Dennison may be enabled to
follow his researches in an efficient
manner, my colleague, Mr. Barnard,
M.P. for Victoria and myself, respectfully request that you may be pleased
to place upon the estimates, th*: sum
of $2,500 for researches on Vancouver Island for the purpose of determining the relation between sei.-uno-
graphic disturbances and coai mine
explosions.
I would further add, that this work
has been clone by Mr. Denniso.i voluntarily, and without compensation,
and tllis question may be brought to
your kind consideration later. Mr.
Dennison is in receipt of a salary
from the Meterological Department,
but this is a separate field of observation and research, and 1 thinl:( and
in this my colleague concurs) unfair
to Mr. Dennison in his sincere eiforts
to throw some light upon a subject
of vital importance to the coal mine
workers of the world. 635 Fort Street,

MONTHLY STOCK MARKET REVIEW
(Issued by F. W. Stevenson & Co., Victoria, B.C., Nov. 30, 1911)
New York Stock Market
October was apparently the turning point in the stock market ancl
tnessed tlie lowest level of prices for the year so far, the announce-
snt during the latter part of the month that the American Tobacco
.mpany's dissolution plan had been accepted by the Supreme Court as
bmitted with modifications, proving a strong bull factor and relieving
e tension caused by the government's prosecutions to a notable extent.
Money continues easy enough and is scarcely likely to harden ma-
Irially although, quoting an eastern exchange, there are one or two
Insiderations which should be carefully kept in mind.   "New York
j losing cash, principally to Canada, representing a kind of Indian
■miner in the outward currency movement customary in the fall.
lipments have taken the form of gold for the most part ancl we know
lit Canada has had a prosperous year ancl can handle a goocl deal of
Iney.   In another respect the matter is not so satisfactory.   London
iDeginning to be anxious at the extent of the borrowings for all sorts
lcorporations and public bodies, big and little, and at the land boom
lich has spread all over western Canada.   The latter is something
lich the thoughtful business man should keep well in mind.   A great
ll of money has been made in Canada on the advance in land values,
ban and rural.   It has been made for the most part by new men,
Ihout experience of a collapse.   Those whose memory goes as far
|_k as the last reaction or the appalling break in all such values
Lerienced hy Australia twenty years ago, when almost every bank on
|tt continent suspended payment, will see the wisdom of closely watch-
; events in this respect."
There has been little change in the business situation. There
\ms to be a fair volume of business moving, but the demand is appar-
:ly chiefly confined to actual requirements. There is no rush or
Iculation, the business world fearing that the reassembling of con-
Iss may mean drastic attempts to alter the tariff and that efforts may
made to introduce other legislation of a revolutionary character,
ir this reason there is a disposition to go slow, general expectations
|ng for rather a dull winter.
During the month, all the active issues in the stock market, rails
ll industrials, have made substantial gains, due primarily to the
leptance of the American Tobacco plans as previously mentioned,
lile the improvement in metal conditions, both here and abroad, has
|n responsible for a good advance in Coppers. While current prices
below the best prices attained for the month, due to realizing sales
ll the elimination of the short interest, the market presents a more
llthy appearance ancl we believe that for the long pull, stocks should
■purchased on all weak spots.
Local Market
The local market has been more or less active during the past
|nth with trading generally distributed.
The Oil shares with the exception of Maricopa have been quiet
|i current prices are about the same or a trifle lower than last prices
October. Rumours of the Maricopa Company having struck oil

better. As these properties are unlike the majority of the local list
inasmuch as they have real merit, we do not hesitate to advise their
purchase at current figures.
Notwithstanding the fact that the International Coal Company's
last quarterly dividend was not forthcoming, as we surmised might be
the case,' the settlement of the strike and resumption of work at the
mines has resulted in the shares almost entirely recovering their loss
of two months ago and current figures of 62 cents show a net gain of
14 cents from the low point recorded in the early part of October.
We believe the next quarter will find the dividend forthcoming as usual
and the shares should be a good buy at present prices.
The nearness of the semi-annual dividend period for the loan
shares has caused an active demand for these issues, B. C. Permanent
selling up to 130 and Great West at 125. The dividend returns on
these stocks makes them attractive to a large portion of the investing
public.
Conditions in the Portland district, as far as we can learn, are
unchanged, with prices of the different mining companies about the
same as last month. Talk of an amalgamation of the different properties of the district, which we mentioned last month as a possibility,
has been responsible for some demand for shares, particularly Portlands, but the demand is light and not of such a character as to advance
the price.
Standard Silver-Lead, one of the late additions to the local sheet,
we believe, presents as good possibilities as any on the mining list.
The company operates the Standard group, near Silverton, and shipments, which have been temporarily suspended, will shortly be resumed.
Mining men acquainted with this property look upon it as one of the
most valuable silver-lead properties in the Dominion and prophesy net
profits for the company of over $1,000,000 a year. The company is
capitalized at $2,000,000, current prices being about $1.60 for the
dollar shares.
UNION BANK:
PROPOSED TRANSFER OF OFFICE
TO WINNIPEG
The question of the transfer of the head office of the Union Bank
of Canada from Quebec City, where it is now located, to Winnipeg,
will be submitted to the shareholders for decision at the next annual
meeting. Honourable John Sharpies, president of the bank, has issued
a circular to he shareholders in which he states:—
"The rapid expansion of the bank's business necessitates ever
increasing watchfulness and care on the part of its executive officers.
We have now 245 branches, of which 159 are situated West of the
great lakes, and the result of experience fully shows the desirability
of having more central supervision than is possible under existing
conditions. As we have only two offices east of Quebec, the head office
is at present located at almost the extreme eastern end of the bank's
chain of branches. Your directors have given this matter very grave
consideration for two years past, and are unanimously of the opinion
that the best interests of the shareholders will be served by removing
the head office from the city of Quebec to Winnipeg, which is about
midway between its eastern and western operations. Application will
be made to the Federal Parliament at its next session for an Act amending the charter of the bank, changing its head office to the City of
Winnipeg, at such time as the shareholders, having signified their
approval, shall authorize your directors to give effect to such change.
A resolution will be submitted to the shareholders at their next annual
meeting to be held on December 18th, asking them to ratify the recommendation of your directors, and to empower them to take the necessary steps to change the head office of the bank to the city of Winnipeg
when they deem the time opportune."
ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CANADIAN NORTHERN
The report of the Canadian Northern Railway Company for the
year ended June 30 states that the gross earnings amounted to $4,990,-
347. Fixed charges absorbed $3,982,651, and after deducting interest
at 5 per cent, per annum on the Income Charge Convertible Debenture
stock there is a net surplus of $604,824. The gross earnings show an
increase of $2,527,651, or 18.27 per cent., and net earnings an increase
of $645,957, or 14.87 per cent., over the preceding year. During the
year over 400 miles of newly-constructed tracks were added to the
system, the average mileage operated being 3,383 miles. The operation
of the Royal Line of steamships from its inception has proved the
wisdom of engaging in the Atlantic trade. It is manifest, however,
that a further addition to the fleet at an early date should be made, and
negotiations are now in progress whereby all the business offered to
the steamship company can be accepted. The land sales during the
year were 279,151 acres for $3,345,499, an average of $12 per acre,
compared with 246,996 acres for $2,561,073, an average of $10.36 per
acre the preceding year; £47,000 of Land Grant Bonds (issue of 1909)
were retired during the year, thus reducing the amount outstanding to
£927,400, or $4,513,346. The company still has 871,866 acres selected
lands unsold. Car Trust Obligations were created to the extent of
$3,294,000 in connection with the purchase of locomotives, passenger
cars and freight cars.
IMMIGRATION
Immigrants to the number of 265,833 arrived in Canada during

GET RICH QUICK
A Chicago promoter has a scheme whicl
makes all other get-rich-quick proposition:
look like a tin horn trust. He proposes t(
cstahlish a "cattery" ancl a "rattery."
The plan is nothing more nor less than t<
feed rats to cats, skin the cats ancl feed th
cats back to the rats, in endless succession
the only break being thc deduction of th
cat skins, the sale of which is to supply th
profits. The promoter, outlining his plai
says: "We will start a cat ranch, gettint
1,000,000 cats. Each will have twelve kitten
a year. Cat skins are wortli io cents fo
white ones and 75 cents for black. They wi
average 30 cents each. There are 12,000,00
cat skins a year, a daily gross income of som
$10,000.
"A man can skin lifty cats for $2, and :
will take 100 men to operate the rancl
leaving our profit over $9,000 a day. We wi
have   to   feed   the   cats.    How?
"Start a rat ranch next door.   Rats multipl
four   times  as  fast  as  cats.     We   will  hav
therefore,   four  rats   a   day   for   each   cat,
plenty.    How to feed the rats?
"Simple, feed them on the cat bodies—j
fourth of a cat per rat—amply sufiicien
Thus, you see, the business will be self-sui
porting and automatic all the way. The ca
will eat the rats, and thc rats will eat tl
cats and we get the skins and wealth."
TOO BAD
The only unoccupied room in the hotel
one with a private bath in connection wi
it—was given to the stranger from Kansii
The next morning the clerk was approach

"Well, did you have a good night's rest
the clerk asked. I

"No,  I didn't," replied the  Kansan.    "T,
room  was all right, and the bed was pret
good,  but I couldn't  sleep very much, for
was  afraid  sonic one  would  want  to take
bath,   and   the only  door  to   it  was throu

News
New Chief Geographer
Joseph E. Chalifour has been appointed chief geographer for the
Dominion government. He takes the
place of the late R. E. Young. This
appointment is a promotion, as Mr.
Chalifour has for three years been
assistant geographer. The salary attached to this position is $3,000.
Dangerous Sport
The city council of Rossland has
passed a by-law prohibiting the practice of coasting and toboganing on
the streets of the city. Anyone doing so in future will do so at their
own risk.
Build South
The Kootenay Central Railway
Company will apply to parliament for
an act authorizing it to construct a
branch line from Galloway southerly
in the direction of the international
boundary, also for more time to construct the authorized lines.
Anxious to Resume
President Luther of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
Power company recently stated in
New York that his company is most
anxious to resume operations at
Phoenix and Grand Forks, B. C, because the profits from these operations will be needed to finance the
Hidden Creek property, recently purchased and now being developed by
the Granby company.
He states that the Hidden Creek
property contains 12,000,000 tons of
developed ore of an average value of
from 2 to 3 per cent, in copper. This
is twice the tonnage that is claimed
for the Granby company's mines at
Phoenix. To put the Hidden Creek
mine on a productive basis, the management desires to equip it with a
smelter of a capacity of 2000 tons a
day, which will involve an expenditure in conjunction with the mine development which has been planned,
of $1,000,000.
The Granby company has available cash assets of about $500,000. At
the present price of copper its earnings, if the'plant were in full operation, would furnish capital required
for the Hidden Creek property. For
that reason the management was most
anxious that the coal miners' strike
in British Columbia should be settled, so that they may be assured of
a supply of coke and be enabled to
resume production.
On the basis of 2000 tons a day,
which is to be the initial capacity of
the Hidden Creek smelter, the Granby company expects to produce from
that property 30,000,000 pounds of
copper during the first year the
smelter is in operation.
Many New Stations
Owing to the large number of
branch lines constructed by the Grand
Trunk Pacific this year, the company
has had to build no less than 150 new
stations. Of these 98 have already
been established, 27 are in course of
construction, while the balance of the
number contracted for will be finished
in   the   spring.
Hazelton a Central Telegraph
Station
By a change in the system, the
Hazelton office of the Government
telegraphs has been made a central
relay station. Henceforth all messages to and from points on the
branch line which runs to Prince
Rupert and the line running north to
Dawson, will be taken to Hazelton
and relayed to their destination.

Kill Beavers in East Kootenay
A. Carney, provincial timber inspector, who has just completed an
official tour of East Kootenay, says
that from all parts of the province
reports are coming of heavy catches
of beaver. In the Stuart lake and
Fort George districts the Indians say
the season is exceptionally good. In
East Kootenay similar conditions prevail, one trapper taking as many as
16 pelts between Fernie and Hosmer.
In the Clinton district the take is a
light one, but few pelts having found
their way to the trading post.
NOTICE is hereby given that 30 days
after date I intend to apply to the Chief
Commissioner of Lands for a licence to prospect for Coal and Petroleum under the following described submarine areas adjacent to
the South-west Coast of Saturna Island, Cowichan District, British Columbia:—Commencing at a post placed about the south-west

Important Order Handed Down
One of the most important orders
yet issued by the Board of Railway
Commissioners, namely No. 15,228,
has been received by the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association. It directs railway companies to graduate
their rates per hundred pounds under the lowest through tariff rate.
It is a practice of companies to
charge more than one graduate,
when a shipment carried by two
companies is consigned to a point
where there is no competition.
A "Beastly" Exchange
It is probable that an important
addition will be made in the near
future to the Stanley Park Zoo in
the shape of two fine lions from the
Dublin Zoological Gardens. Mr. S.
McLay, who has just returned to
Vancouver from Ireland, informed
one of the park commissioners that
the authorities of the Dublin Gardens
stated that they were ready to part
with a pair of African lions in exchange for two beavers. This exchange may at first sight seem disproportionate, but it must be remembered that beaver are fauna rara in
Old Country "zoos."
Transcontinental Assistant Engineer
is Promoted
Duncan Macpherson, who for the
past six years has been assistant engineer of the transcontinental railway commission, has been appointed
assistant to R. W. Leonard, chairman
of the commission. The promotion
is an important one. It means that
during the absence of the chairman
Mr. Macpherson will have complete
control of the work of the department. Who will be appointed assistant chief engineer to succeed Mr.
Macpherson is not yet decided.
Railway Charters
The C. P. R. will apply to parliament for a charter for a line from
Sedgewick, on its Hardisty division,
southerly to Township 40 or 41, range
12 or 13 west fourth meridian. The
Kettle Valley railway company will
apply to Parliament for a charter for
a line from Vernon to Penticton,
Build New Roads
At the Albertan legislature it was
announced that the government would
proceed with the construction of two
railways from Edmonton to Mackenzie river through the Peace River
country; one to extend from Athabasca Landing to Peace River Crossing; the other from Edmonton to
Fort McMurray. Mackenzie and
Mann will build and operate the new
roads.

Fragments from An Old
Tablet
(i) Once upon a time * * *
(2) A Par-ti of Tou-rists
(3) Came to Victoria * * * called
the Beautiful * * * and they looked
round and said to each other, "Now
we will see * * *
(4) this city called Beautiful—
(5) * * * and behold as they looked
round
(6) * * * a Taxi-Kab shov-ver approached them
(7) saying—"Do you wish to see
Victoria the Beautiful?"
(8) And they, one and all, said
"Yes"
(9) * * * How much is the damage?
(j0) * * * And he replied to them
"$5.00 per hour or part thereof."
(11) * * * So they en-gaged him
and said, "Show us this beautiful
city.
(12) * * * thereupon the "shov-ver"
turned a han-del and something
"klicked"
(13) * * * And the Tour-ists entered the "Kar"
(14) * * * And the some-thing still
"klicked"—
(15) And after some con-sider-able
time—during which the Shov-ver
pulled ancl pushed at var-iotis buttons
and levers—
(16) * * * while the something still
"klicked"—
(17) * * * they started—
(18) * * * and behold they went
down a street named—
(19) * * * Government
(20) * * * till they came to the
I "Burnside Road"—
(21) * * * and on reaching this they
I behold an ancient board with this
[inscription—
(22) * * * "this street closed to
I traf-lic
(23) * * * by order of the City Engineer.
(24) * * * And the Tou-rists wished
|to take the tablet to place—

(26) * * * But the shov-ver said
|"No"—we must return—
(27) * * * "I will take you by an-

(28) * * * So they returned—
(29) * * * and came to Fort Street—

"klicked"—
(31) * * * when they came to Fort

(40) But  the  "shov-ver  said  "No
(41) * * * I will take you by anither 'root'"
(42) * * * So they turned back—
(43) and tried the other 'root'—

1(57) * * * apd then a B. C. E. R.
Ir rang its bell—
1(58) * * * violently—
1(59) * * * but the "Auto" could not
It—
l(6o) * * * out of the way—
(61) * * * so the traf-fic was held
(62) * * * and the B. C. E. R. car
being
(63) * * * overcrowded—as usual—
(64) * * * there were many complaints
(65) * * * from the passengers—
(66) * * * some of whom said they
would
(67) * * * write to the papers—
(68) * * * others — got out and
walked
(69) * * * to their homes—a long
way off—
(70) * * * and there happened to
pass by—
(71) * * * a dray with a powerful
team of horses—
(72) * * * and for a "con-sid-era-
tion" the driver of the team
(7) offered to pull the "Auto" out
of the mire—
(7) * * * which he did—
(75) * * * and the "consideration"
touched the pockets of the Tour-ists—
(76) * * * and the something still
"klicked"
(Tj) * * * then the "shov-ver said—
(78) * * * "We cannot go this way
it is too—awful
(79) * * * "I will take you by a side
street"—
(79) * * * and when they came to
the side street they saw—
(81) * * * "this street is klosed to
traf-fic
(82) * * * by.order of the City Engineer"—
(83) * * * so they said to the
"Shov-ver"
(84) * * * are any streets open?
(85) and he said—
(86) * * * "I don't think so."
(87) * * * and the something still
(88) * * * "klicked fur-ious-ly."
(89) * * * so they said this is indeed beautiful—
(go) * * * How can we see more?
(91) * * * and the "Shov-ver" said,
"I have a cousin who is trying
(92) * * * an Aeroplane—
(93) * * * perhaps he can help you"
(94) * * * But the Tou-rists looked
at one another
(95) * * * and at the dial of the
"klicker"
(96) * * * whicii still "klicked wickedly"
(97) * * * and said "how much?"
(98) * * * and the "Shov-ver" said,
"I can take you to the Bank, the
amount is probably more than you
have on you—
(99) * * * so he took them to the
Bank—
(100) * * * where they drew all the
money they had to their credit—
(101) * * * and returned home.
NEW WINE IN OLD BOTTLES
(Continued from Page 6)
bread-winner of the family must be
allowed to earn sufficient to keep his
family. It is not till we realise that
the world of labour today desires this
with a passionate longing and the
Church shares that longing with the
same passion that it will be recognised as expressing true sympathy.
A third and very potent reason alleged by the Bishop for the ineffectiveness of Church work is the prevailing tendency of the clergy to magnify the importance of ritual. Church
literature is altogether too much
taken up with the discussion of ornaments, rubrics and art vestments,
and, however important some of these
controversies might be, thc Bishop
contended that it is hard to realise
how trivial and petty many of them
must have seemed to the toiling millions of our fellow-countrymen.
"There they were, fighting and
struggling for daily bread, here we
were convulsed with the question of
whether the stole was legal. There
they were working out their own salvation as best they might, here we
were ranged in two rival camps of
High Church and Low Church, and
too intent upon defeating one another
to have time to attend to their growing hunger for life whicii could be in
any sense called real life and a home
which was indeed a home."
This is what the Bishop calls putting new wine into old bottles, and

to 10 piece. Our prices

he contends that the whole texture
of the Church must be altered. There
is nothing wrong with the Church, or
the Sacraments, or the minister, or
the ceremonial; the masses of the
people are not opposed to these in
themselves, but the clergy must give
up the "parish manner," and lay aside
fatal "class prejudice" and "caste feeling" and break through that subtle
network which consists in a sense of
superiority and come out upon common ground.
If in this way the new wine were
put into new bottles, new methods,
new manners, new classifications, both
wine ancl bottles would be preserved.
This is the briefest outline of a
memorable address; one which cannot
fail to have produced a profound
effect upon the great gathering which
was privileged to listen to it, and one
which may be fairly accepted as the
teaching of the most advanced section of the Christian Church with respect to the relation between the
Church and the Democracy which has
come to stay. W. B.

must have been more than could be
described, even by a vituperative
Irishman, in so far as to what their
opinion was of the City Council and
its endeavours to provide good thoroughfares for public traffic at one of
the most important points in thc City.
This complaint of mine may havc,
perhaps, as much effect as a dew-
drop on the petal of a flower; nevertheless, I would personally venture to
draw this matter to your attention,
beseeching the inhabitants of this
good and beneficent city to consider
gravely how long, oh Lord, how long,
will Victoria remain in the rut, literally speaking, so far as the conditions
of the streets are concerned.
The way in which the condition of
tiie street I have referred to, was
brought under my notice today, is of
most serious import when one considers thc likelihood that not only
was property in danger, but that perhaps human lives were at stake in a
building, where delay of the brigade
to any extent, might prove fatal.
I crave your indulgence in drawing
this matter under your notice, and
thank you for giving publicity to same
through the columns of The Week.
Yours very truly,

HILDA LESSWAYS
Book Notes hy W. B.
HILDA LESSWAYS. By Arnold
Bennett. William Briggs, Toronto. $1.50. On sale by the Standard Book & Stationery Co., 1220
Government St., Victoria, B. C.
"Hilda Lessways" is the sequel to
"Clayhanger," and the second in a
series of three novels dealing with the
same leading characters, the principal one being the heroine of the
book under review.
The first matter that calls for notice is the manner in which Mr. Bennett has acquitted himself, because in
the preceding book he had attained
such a high level of literary craftsmanship as to hold out the promise
of being the legitimate successor of
our great novelists.
His rise to fame has been remarkably rapid considering that he did
not achieve popularity in a day by
the publication of a master-piece
which startled the world, but rather
that he attracted notice by a book
which bore the ear-marks of originality and remarkable insight, I refer
to "The Old Wives' Tales." This
and "The Tales of Five Towns"
formed the fitting prelude to "Clayhanger" which was on an altogether
higher plane, being less morbid, or
perhaps it would be more correct to
say morose, less pessimistic and less
like the terribly fatalistic and depressing work of the late George
Gissing.
"Clayhanger" opened a vista of possibilities, without sacrificing any of
the marvellous fidelity of detail which
had characterised Mr. Bennett's earlier works; this book took on an
added beauty, more colour, a truer
philosophy of life and altogether left
an impression which justified comparison, not so much with Dickens,
as has been suggested, but with
Thomas Hardy.
"Clayhanger" and now in a greater
degree "Hilda Lessways," while suffering slightly in comparison with the
best work of the great Wessex master, furnish chapters which might well
be compared with their counterpart
in "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" and
"Jude the Obscure." The main difference is that Hardy's lines were
deeper and heavier; he cut to the
.core; was more dramatic in form,
and more fully visualised a tragedy.
Bennett uses more lines with which
to sketch his picture, filling in infinitely more detail; but it is the monotonous detail of everyday life, and
it creates an impression rather of
gloom than of tragedy. It is tragic
enough for the characters, but they
are not as great as the men and
women limned by Hardy, nor is Bennett quite as sure of his ground. It
is this inevitable certainty which
makes Hardy so convincing and effective.
Bennett, while both a philosopher
and a thinker, is touched with the
"Xew Thought" of the twentieth century, and is not yet quite certain that
the wisdom of the ages comprises all
knowledge ancl all wisdom. This is
more apparent in "Hilda Lessways"
than in any of his preceding books.
He feels the pressure of the problem,
and after piloting his heroine through
enough experience to satisfy half-a-
dozen ordinary women, he finally
lands her in what should be a haven
of repose, but, so little is the author
satisfied with his work, that he promises a third volume to complete the
sketch.
Hilda Lessways herself is a remarkable woman. She is devoid of physical beauty, but attracts by indefinable qualities. Her unusualness, her
unexpectedness, her vivacity, her originality and her courage are the characteristics which prove irresistible?
These are well-balanced by shortcomings, such as are invariably to be
found in women of this type.
She worked her way from poverty
to something approaching affluence.
She married a man old enough to be
her father because he had certain
magnetic qualities which she could
not resist, and although she knew
that he was a trickster and a charlatan. But it needed not any exposition of Mr. Bennett's philosophy to
determine that the more worthless a
man is and the more unreliable his
character, the more certain he is to
be worshipped by the majority of women, and to be idolised by some woman who is ready to cast aside honest
love for the spurious excitement
which an alliance of this character
affords.
Mr. Bennett endows his heroine
with what he describes as "The most
precious of all faculties, the power
to feel intensely," and this is the keynote to her character. In the end
she had to find that the man she married already had a wife hidden away,
safely, as he thought. When this was
discovered Hilda was disillusionised;
the "intense feeling" evaporated; the
chain was broken, and in the most
matter of fact way she turned her
face to the future without taking him
into account at all; and as the sequel
shows, turned to Edwin Clayhanger,
with whom she had long been in love
and for whom she had an affection
that was more rational and therefore
more abiding.
The final situation is well described in her own words: "At last her
life was settled and mapped out. Destiny had been kind and she meant
to be worthy of her fate. She could
have swooned, so intoxicating was her
wonder, and her solemn joy, and her
yearning after righteousness in love."
I fear it must be conceded by the
honest critic that the book as a whole
is not quite up to the standard of its
predecessors. It starts well and finishes well, but between times it drags
terribly.
In dealing with the subordinate
characters the author is not happy;
in fact, it almost seems as if he has
placed more puppets on the stage
than he can manage. His cameos are
not as clear cut; the impression they
leave on the reader is not so distinct.
After Hilda and her husband, Mr.
Cannon, no doubt the most consistent
character is Sarah Gailey, a pathetic
figure of a widow dependent on a
rich but heartless brother, and who
throughout the book presents the picture of a woman "into whose soul the
iron has entered."
There is in this latest book of Mr.
Bennett's the usual amount of sordid-
ness; he seems to revel in picturing
the saddest aspects of human experience and while the result is sometimes pathetic, it is more often repellent.
In dealing with the character of
Hilda Lessways the author is endeavouring to analyse a very complex
soul. The result is profoundly interesting, if it is not altogether convincing, and leaves the lingering doubt
whether he too must not be classed
with the nearly-great novelists who
have failed to understand feminine nature; or even to understand it sufficiently to avoid serious pitfalls.
He pictures Hilda as gradually becoming disillusionised with respect to
her husband, and yet at the very same
time "she was fond of him, perhaps
getting fonder; but his domination of
her senses was already nearly at an
end, so that by virtue of this not yet
quite bitter disillusionment she was
coming to regard herself as his superior, as being less naive than he,
as being even essentially older than
he."
When the time came that she realised that in marrying this man she
had dishonoured her high ideal, she
reflected "this is not right; this cannot lead to good; it must lead to
evil; I am bound to suffer for it; the
whole thing is wrong, I know it and
I have always known it."
How perfectly does Mr. Bennett
picture a type of marriage which is,
alas, far too common in these days
and how admirably does he conjure
up in one short paragraph the very
epitome of such an experience.
"Already she was disappointed
with her marriage. Amid the fevers
of bodily appetite she could clearly
distinguish the beginning of lassitude;
she no longer saw her husband as a
romantic and baffling figure; she had
explored and charted his soul, and not
all his excellence could atone for his
earthliness.     She   wondered   grimly
where and under what circumstances
he had acquired the adroitness which
had charmed and still did charm her.
She saw in front of her a vista of
days and years in which ennui would
probably increase and joy diminish.
And she put her shoulders back defiantly and thought 'Well, here I am
anyhow! I wanted him and I've got
him. What I have to go through I
shall go through'!"
When the crisis came upon Hilda
and she knew that she had been deceived, she was "dizzied by the conception of the capacity of her own
body and soul for experience. No
factors, save her own body and soul
and his had been necessary to the
bringing about of the situation. It
was essential only that the man and
the woman should be together and
their companionship would produce
miracles of experience."
While Mr. Bennett has a certain
streak of originality, it is rather in
his treatment of his characters than
in any wide departure from the respectable conventionalities. Thus he
rounds out his book with punishment,
the "poetic justice" which the vagaries of Hilda's conduct demanded.
"Only the tragic figure of George
Cannon hung vague in the far distance of memory and the sight thereof constricted her heart. Utterly her
passion for him had expired; she was
exquisitely sad for him, she felt towards him kindly and guiltily as one
feels towards an old error."
But the reader will not forget that
by the time she had reached
this semi-remorseful, semi-penetential
stage she was already reviving memories of her youthful lover, Edwin
Clayhanger.
As she looked towards the future
she found "the tragic sequel to one
adventure had not impaired her instinct for experience. On the contrary it had strengthened it. The
very failure of the one excited her
towards another. The zest of living
was reborn in her. The moral beckoned her, golden and miraculous. The
faculty of men and women to create
their own lives seemed divine and the
conception of it enfevered her."
From the foregoing it will be seen
that in this book the author has concentrated his efforts on the development of one character, his heroine,
She is attractive and fascinating, but
there is nothing great about her, even
her vices are commonplace ancl she
neither grapples with new problems
nor with the old ones in new ways.
Also it must be noted by the seeker
for the epigrammatic ancl sententious
that this book yields far fewer of such
passages than any of its predecessors.
It still leaves the author head ancl
shoulders above his competitors, but
not so indubitably isolated in excellence as seemed possible when he had
finished "Clayhanger." It would be a
thousand pities if he wrote himself
out so early in a literary career which
gave promise of being brilliant. One
more book like "Clayhanger" ancl his
position would have been assured; another as much inferior to "Hilda Lessways" as that book is to its predecessor ancl the dream will be shattered.

IN THE PRESS
Mr. Edgar Fawcett, one of the oldest and best known residents of Victoria, has been induced to collect his
reminiscences and publish them in
book form. The publication has been
entrusted to the pioneer firm of Hibben & Co. and the book will be on
the market within a few weeks. Mr.
Fawcett's many admirers will be glad
to know that the early history of Victoria has been dealt with by so competent an authority and will now be
preserved in proper form. His reminiscences extend back to 1858 ancl
cover every event of note which has
occurred in the city since that time.
Indeed, his book goes back to 1850,
the year in which he reached San
Francisco and the year in which a
well-known editor was shot in the
public street by a fellow editor named
Casey who was tried and hanged.
This was in the good old clays when
it was possible to have the penalty of
crime enforced in California. Mr.
Fawcett's book should have a large
sale and it certainly will if its merits
are recognised.

Character by Handwriting
The Editor of The  Week wishes
to call special attention to this Department, which is conducted by an
English gentleman, a 'Varsity man of
1 high attainments.   Character reading
from   hand-writing   is   a   scientific
study, entirely devoid of charlatanism
j and is possibly the most reliable in-
! dex of all, because hand-writing records the development of character,
and its index is not confined to natural   traits.     It   is   an   interesting
I study, not merely in enabling us to
I see ourselves as others see us, but
Imay be turned to important account
lin submitting the hand-writing of per-
Isons with whom we have business reflations.   Indeed, viewed in this aspect,
lit is only a reasonable precaution to
llearn all that the chirographist can
[tell us.   Before deciding to institute
Ithis Department the  Editor of The
|Week imposed the severest tests, sub-
nitting  the    hand-writing    of well-
known persons entirely unknown to
|:he  gentleman  conducting  this  Department, who is a stranger to Victoria and a recent arrival.   He is prepared to guarantee absolute accuracy
lind hopes that the readers of The
I-Veek will avail themselves of what
|s a genuine privilege.
RULES
i. AH persons wishing to consult
iTau" must enclose a specimen of
land-writing, consisting of about four
Ines, written on unruled paper. It
liay be signed with their own name
lr not, but tliere must be an initial
Ir nom-de-plume to identify the
Inswer, which will appear in the next
Isue of The Week.
J 2. Each specimen of hand-writing
lust be accompanied by a P. 0. for
1) cents or stamps for the same
Inount, and the outside of the en-
l.'lope should be indited "Hand-writ-

What better present than a few fully paid up shares in a
thriving enterprise engaged in building up the City of Victoria
and managed by well known business men?
British Canadian Home Builders, Limited, with an authorized
capital of $500,000 in $1.00 shares has been organized to do a
general Building, Real Estate and Insurance business, ancl no
better field exists today for such a Company than this same
Victoria.
Companies run on similar lines elsewhere have proved
phenomenally successful, making handsome dividends for their
shareholders. Take for instance "Home Builders," Los Angeles,
a Company which started with a capital of only $1,250 less than
four years ago, today has assets of over $1,089,000, surplus
$308,000, is paying 17 per cent, dividends, and its $1.00 shares
are selling at $2.30.
Shareholders in British Canadian Home Builders, Limited,
may conservatively look for a 10 per cent, dividend the first year,
increasing thereafter, and a steady advance in the value of their
shares, caused by the additional earnings placed to the credit of
the reserve fund.
There are no promotion shares in this Company. All have
paid $1.00 per share, some for as many as ten thousand shares
and others for as few as fifty—all will participate in the profits
equally according to their holdings.

The marriage was celebrated recently at Christ Church, Chatham, Ont., of
Mr. John   Forin  Templeton,   of   the
firm of  Gore  &  McGregor,  of this
city, and  Miss  Helen  Claire  Rispin,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Rispin, King street, Chatham, Ont.   The
Rev. R. S. W. Howard officiated at
the ceremony.   The service was fully
choral.    The church was beautifully
decorated for the occasion with pink
and white chrysanthemums and ferns.
The bride   wore    a very   handsome
gown   of  ivory   duchess   satin,   with
drapery of Venetian point lace and a
semi-detached court train.   She wore
a tulle veil held in place by a coronet
of orange blossoms, and she carried a
bouquet of orchids and lilies of the
valley.    The  only jewelry she wore
was a beautiful diamond and platinum
necklace.    The bride was  supported
by four bridesmaids, Miss Margaret
Rispin, and Miss Jean MacLaren, of
Toronto, gowned in dainty organdie
frocks  with  pink  sashes;   and   Mrs.
Claude Kent and Miss Jessie Wilson,
wore charming gowns of pink marquisette over pink satin trimmed  with
crystal   fringe.    They   carried   large
sheaves of pink chrysanthemums, and
wore old fashioned lace poke bonnets
trimmed with pink ostrich tips.   Miss
Marjorie Davies of Detroit, acted as
maid of honour, and wore a gown of
pale green satin with a tunic of crystal and heavy hand embroidery.  She
carried a bouquet of tiny pink rose
buds and lilies of the valley.     The
groom was supported by Mr. Frederick C. Lytle, of Toronto.   A large reception was afterwards held at  the
home of the bride's parents.
The third annual ball given by the
Police Department of Victoria
eclipsed its predecessors in every way.
Successful as were the former balls
given by the force, the results of arduous work on the part of the blue-
coats during the past weeks were such
as to overshadow anything previously attempted by the Victoria Police
Department. Before opening the ball
by leading the Grand March, Premier
McBride presented the certificates
won by various members of the Force
during the past year who had passed
examinations in first aid work, and
concluded by presenting Dr. Donald,
the instructor, with a handsome clock
which had been subscribed for by the
ambulance class as a recognition of
his services. Mr. McBride performed
this pleasing function, and after the
Grand March the ball was opened,
and remained open till the small
hours. Never has the popularity of
the Police Force from Chief Langley
down to the latest recruit been more
heartily proclaimed than it was on
Wednesday night and the ball of 1911
will long be remembered as "the best
yet."

Route Mapped Across Province
Although the Canadian Highway
Association has only been in existence for about one month, the work
it has accomplished in this short space
of time is conclusive proof that the
organization will be an important factor in the development of this country  by  the  building of  good  roads.
Letters of encouragement have
been received by the officers from
many cities in the east, ancl from
Hazelton, Dawson and Alberni, the
latter the western terminus of the
proposed  Canadian Highway.
Alberni was recently visited by a
travelling representative of the Canadian Highway Association, who
found every business man in that
town in hearty sympathy with the
objects of the association. Nanaimo
and Victoria have also been canvassed
and each city has added considerably
to the strength of the membership of
this body.
W. W. Foster, Deputy Minister of
Public Works, in a letter to W. J.
Kerr, President of the Association,
outlines the following route as the
most practicable for the construction
of British Columbia's portion of the
Canadian Highway: Alberni to Victoria, via Nanaimo; Vancouver, Westminster, Hope, Princeton, Rossland,
hence to Trail, crossing the Columbia by the new bridge now, in course
_f erection, ancl via Summit Creek,
ilong the Old Dewdney Trail to
Preston, thence following the main
IPrunk Road into Alberta.
While this route cannot be con-
idered final until all the reports from
lhe surveyors and engineers have
Ieen submitted to the Department of
I'ublic Works, it is not likely that
ny important deviation will be made.
By his reference in his speech from
he Throne at the opening of the
louse of Commons on November 16,
His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught put the stamp of Royal
approval on the plan to construct a
Canadian Highway that will stretch
from coast to coast. His intimation
that the Federal and Provincial Governments would work hand in hand
vvith a view to improving the highways of Canada has already been of
great assistance to the men who are
taking an active part in the work of
the Canadian Highway Association,
showing as it does that it only needs
proper representation to the authorities in order to secure at once the
commencement of this great national
enterprise.
GOSSIP FROM THE STALLS
(Continued from Page 4)
Judge; Mr. Fred Emery as Clerk of
the Court; Mr. W. C. Cronk as Foreman of the Jury. The ladies who will
take part are Mrs. J. Chapman who
will play as Mrs. Bardell; Miss Moore
as Mrs. Cluppins, and Miss Tomlin as
Mrs. Saunders. The play is being
produced largely under the stage management of Mr. George Morphy who
has ably assisted the performers.
Thanks are clue to the Bar of Victoria for kindness in lending wigs
and gowns. The members of the
Bible Class have been devoting themselves to making the play a success
and the public are assured of an entertaining evening.
The Gamblers
"The Gamblers," the most successful contemporaneous dramatic offering, in America, which scored a remarkable run of over 200 performances at Maxine Elliott's Theatre,
New York, comes to Victoria Theatre, Wednesday, December 13, under
the management of the Authors' Pro
ducing Company, of which John Cort
is President.
In this absorbing play by Charles
Klein, author of "The Third Degree,"
"The Lion and the Mouse," "The
Music Master," "Maggie Pepper," and
notable stage successes, the story
arises out of the operations of one
Wilbur Emerson, who, with several
associated with him in the banking
business, uses the money of the depositors in an endeavour to fight several larger banks which are endeavouring to crush them.
Busy Izzy
Anyone who has ever thrown a leg
under the manogany and discussed a
bottle and a bird with George Sidney,
who this year is starring with a company of forty-five fun furnishers, in
the new musical funbargain, "Busy
Izzy," which is to be seen at the
Victoria Theatre next Thur? day, has
set the actor down as a great "spender" ancl a prince of goocl fellows.
This was in the old days. Of late
he has developed a trait which has
caused sorrow and astonishment
among his cronies of former times.
He has in fact become a pronounced
miser and an "Indian giver." At night
after the play he may be found chasing chorus girls to whom he has
given money. "Come back here with
those bills," he roars as he snatches
the greenbacks from tlieir dainty
fingers.
The cause of the actor's niggardliness, it may be explained, is the
sudden advance in the value of stage
money, owing to a taboo placed on
its manufacture last year.
NOTICE
NOTICE is hereby given that an application will be made to the legislative Assembly
of the Province of British Columbia at its
next session for an Act granting to The Victoria Harbour Railway Company an extension
of time within which to commence and continuously and effectually proceed with the
construction of its railway, and also an extension of time within which to spend fifteen
per cent, of its authorised capital upon the
construction  of  its  railway.
Dated at Victoria, B. C, this 4th day of
December,   iqii.

EDITORIAL
(Continued from Page 1)
extravagant, it shuffles out on the
plea that it was thinking of American rather than Canadian unions,
that in any event its criticism was
justified by the Los Angeles tragedy
ancl finally that it did not stigmatise "all" unions or union leaders in
the opprobrious epithets which it
used. To which any fair-minded
observer will say that the original
article does not contain the modification which Saturday Night reproduces in its later article. The
original statement was absolute and
unqualified, that labour leaders
were crooks ancl blacklegs, not that
"some of them" were. As to the
other plea, it may go down in the
East, but it is too subtle for the
Western mind. For a Canadian
paper could not by the widest
stretch of the imagination claim
that it was referring to matters
outside its own country unless it
said so. The lame defence of Saturday Night leaves it in a worse
plight than when in a rash moment
it set out to libel labour leaders.
CREDIT DESERVED—The
Times has been trying to
make political capital out of
the impending visit of Mr. Coste,
the Dominion Engineer. It would
have the public believe that Mr.
Templeman had something to do
with it. As a matter of fact the
Breakwater project was simply an
election cry so far as Mr. Templeman was concerned, an eleventh
hour idea taken up iri desperation.
The credit for prompt action on the
part of the new Government belongs to two men, Mr. G. H. Barnard, M. P., and Mr. J. H. S. Mat-
son. As Member for Victoria, Mr.
Barnard put the Breakwater project in the forefront of his demands, but he was ably supported
by Mr. Matson, who, shortly after
the election, was in direct communication with Mr. Borden, and
in an able and exhaustive letter
dealt with a number of the principal requirements of the constituency and especially with the
Breakwater project. In his reply
to Mr. Matson Mr. Borden definitely promised prompt action, so that
it is fair to give him a portion of
the credit, which, in ignorance of
these facts, might otherwise be ascribed entirely to the sitting Member. The Week is sure that Mr.
Barnard would be the first to
acknowledge the valuable efforts
put forward in this matter by Mr.
Matson, and in any event it is only
common justice that the fact should
be made known.
THE V. A. D. C—Attention
is called to the popular entertainment which will be
staged at the Victoria Theatre by
the V. A. D. C. on Decemher 15th
and 16th. This Club has been in
existence a year and has made
many promises to justify its existence. Little progress was made,
however, until the Committee secured the services of Captain Taylor, an experienced actor-manager,
who is an enthusiast in amateur
dramatics. On his advice the plays
originally selected were abandoned
as unsuitable and one of the most
amusing comedies entitled "A Pantomime Rehearsal" selected instead.
The cast is one of the largest and
most efficient which has been assembled in Victoria. The rehearsals are proceeding satisfactorily and the producer is hopeful that
the Club will be able to present a
performance which will be entirely
gratifying and successful. The
Week bespeaks public support for
what is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable entertainment.

just a little too much zeal.

running on Cook Street.
That between five and six o'clock
it is easily able to carry ioo passengers.
* *   *
That passengers for Cook Street
are frequently unable to get out, and
make the round trip to Foul Bay
Road before debarking.
* *   *
That the plea of Mr. Forrest Angus
for lower car steps is a most modest
and humane request.
* *   *
That the asphalt on Kingston ancl
Ontario Streets is rotten.
That this will not involve any loss
to the city, as the contractors have
to keep it in repair for ten years.
That street-cleaning has got entirely beyond the capacity of the Streets
Committee.

this does not apply to the regulation

thing that was rotten.
* *   *
That when they saw what they had
done the fellers both ran away.

That the Postmaster's order to deliver letters according to their address

•*••■   *   *
