THE AVEEK,  SATURDAY, AUGUST 27,  1910.
One Dollab Pek Annum
ER THE FAIR
r AVilfrid has gone, and at the dis-
3 of a week one is better able to con-
• dispassionately the net result of his
to Victoria.   In its issue of Saturday
The Week dealt with the two vital
tions whieh Sir AVilfrid discussed at
public meeting  in  tlie   Horse Show
ing, and has nothing to add to what
id.   Thc Colonist is to be congratulat-
n having, for tlie first time, adopted
isonable attitude, in a very able edi-
1 (obviously from the pen of a junior
ber of the staff) which appeared in
rsday's issue.   The article was a lucid,
ise and forceful statement of the case
British Columbia against Oriental im-
ation, and endorsed the stand taken
'lie AAreek, that in its last issue the
ion is not an economic but a racial
It is a pity that so able an article
Id have been marred by the final para-
!i, which emphasized tlie material conations.   These are sufficiently in evi-
3 in all affairs Canadian and need no
lasis.    The AVeek still believes that,,
ver great   the commercial  plum of-
, it will have no weight with the peo-
f this Province if tlie principle of a
ite Canada" is threatened. There were
al other matters referred to in Sir
red's speech which should not be al-
1 to pass without comment.   No refer-
wliatever was made to the subject of
ter Terms," although it has been alas important a factor in Provincial
ics as that of Oriental Immigration,
the spectacular, and. even sensational
ido assumed by tho Victoria Times in
enunciation of Mr. McBride's policy
lis regard, it is a little surprising to
he subject absolutely ignored.   It can-
'or a moment be pretended that this
cause Sir Wilfrid Laurier or tlie Lib-
press believes it to be a dead issue.
McBride has formulated too good a
and has repeatedly asserted that he
ld never abandon it until justice is
It is easy to understand that Sir
t'rid was not anxious to recall the in-
nt at Ottawa, when Mr. McBride re-
d to be threatened or bribed into the
tance of  inadequate  terms;   or that
r incident in London, when he adroit-
ecured the insertion of those historic
Is "Final and unalterable," only to
that, thanks to the Watchfulness and
■essiveness of Mr. McBride, they were
equently struck out.    If Sir AVilfrid
ks that the Province is satisfied with
Fielding's pittance, or that Mr. Mc-
le does not intend to renew the fight,
, with all respect be it said, he is livin a "fool's paradise."    Sir AVilfrid
something to say about Songhees Re-
e, and what lie did say can hardly have
i comforting to some of liis local supers.   He practically told Senator Riley
the Hon. AVm. Templeman that they
nothing to do with the settlement of
vexed question; tliat it was not a mat-
for tlie Dominion Government, which
oly stood in tho position of a guar-
; that thc settlement lay in tlie hands
he   Provincial   Government   and tlie
.    Sir AVilfrid also stated to an in-
ewer tliat Senator Riley had no au-
ity whatever to make any offer on
If   of   the   Dominion   Government,
ih means  that in  tlie recent  furore,
i the venerable Senator and the Min-
of Mines professed to lis charged with
oighy negotiation, they were simply
ting in," and it is doubtful if the joy-
—Avliich ended so disastrously—-will
lid for by tlie Dominion Government,
this is all very well as far as it goes,
t must be admitted that Sir Wilfrid's
uent savours quite as much of "the
wisdom of the serpent" as of the "harinless-
ness of the dove," because he washes his
hands of all responsibility, thereby placing it on the shoulders of the local Government; and yet, whenever an amicable
settlement is iu sight, his local lieutenants
rush in with some abortive scheme to head
it off lest, perchance, the Conservative
Party should gain any "kudos" from a settlement. Now, everyone who has-been in
touch with the question knows that this is
the naked truth; and while Sir AVilfred
will now be able to say that he made a
declaration repudiating responsibility, it
must not be forgotten that the last word
will have to be spoken from Ottawa, because no agreement can be put through
without the endorsation of the Federal
Government. The AVeek believes tliat the
verdict of the people of British Columbia
will be that, as a festive tour, Sir AA7il-
fred's pilgrimage was an unbounded success ; as a political campaign, a fizzle.
TEMPERANCE
It is very interesting to note the present trend of events with respect to drunkenness, and more generally with respect
to drinking. AVhatever thc reason may
be, it is a well recognized fact that for the
last few years a wave of sobriety has been
sweeping through the civilized world.
Politicians, Economists, Sociologists and
Pyschologists havo all furnished their explanations, and the net result would seem
to indicate that there are a variety of influences at work. The "dry" period
started on the heels of tlie financial panic
in the United States in the Fall of 1907,
and the conclusion of observers was that
it was due to a restricted income and the
necessity for practising small economies.
That may have had something to do with
it, but as the condition was confined to
tho United States it could not have been,
a general factor. English exchanges point
out a direct conection between dearer
whiskey and less drunkenness. Since the
price of whiskey was raised in April,
1909, there has been a falling off of ten
per cent, in convictions for drunkenness,
while it is gratifying to read that the convictions of women showed a higher decrease than those of men. But tliere is
less drunkenness in Canada, where the
price of whiskey has not been raised, and
where there has been no financial panic,
and no dimnution in the income of the
wage-earner; so that, it would appear
that the solution of the problem lies in another direction. Thc AVeek believes that
it is due to two causes: The steadily increasing influence of sober reformers, and
the occurrence of a pyschological period.
AVith reference to the latter, first, it is a
well recognized fact that such periods do
occur. The devout mind believes that they
have a religious, or perhaps, to speak more
correctly, a spiritual basis, when some influence, working on the hearts and consciences of men, seems to culminate in its
intensity and bring about a more or less
emotional wave whicli affects all peoples
who accept the same standard of civilization. These periods arc recurrent, and
often usher in great spiritual upheavals;
and while it may be straining a point to
explain thc present temperance movement
on these grounds, he would be a bold man
who would venture to affirm that no such
influence has been at work. A feature of
such recurrent periods lias been tlieir transiency. The fever heat soon passes away,
and while thc frontier line of advancement
has been carried somewhat nearer to the
goal there is invariably some recession—
defined, for lack of a better term, as the
swing of the pendulum the other way.
The AVeek, however believes that the dominant factor in thc present movement for
universal temperance is to be found in thc
higher tone of public opinion resulting
from the faithful, prayerful ancl persistent work of sober reformers—not men vho
have depended on threats and negations,
hut who havo relied upon the sweet rea-
sonablenes of tlieir arguments and the uplifting influence of tlieir example. The
AVeek believes thc world is growing soberer, not because of, but in spite of, tlie
organized temperance agencies. Men nre
ceasing to drink to excess not because they
are told that they shall not or must not,
and certainly not because they have been
persecuted in the name of the law by
truculent paid agitators, but because they
are slowly but surely realizing not only
the evils but the degradation of drunken-
ncse, and are finding it daily more im-
posible to hold their own in a world in
which excessive drinking has ceased to b3
known as it once was, a "cachet" of social
respectability. The English papers are
commenting on tlie almost entire absence
of drunkenness during the recent summer
holidays. They declare that the contrast
with twenty years ago is striking; that
Englishmen are drinking less, and in particular drinking less spirits. They declare that the days havc gone by when intemperance was looked upon as an amiable and excusable failing. Yet, at the
same time, the total abstinence, movement
in England is still the custom, and is likely
to remain so. This testimony is from all
the leading papers, and cannot but bc gratifying to those who have always advocated
an educational, as opposed to a professionally organized, repressive movement. England never tolerated such quack nostrums
as Prohibition or the Scott Act, but England is yielding in thc main to the finer,
and surely the nobler, influences whicii
alone can produce permanent results.
THE WATER QUESTION
The two voluminous reports presented
on Thursday evening by Mr. J. J. Shallcross, representing the majority, and Alderman Fullerton, representing the minority, of the Special Committee, are singularly able and informing documents. It
is safe to say that if this mass of detailed
information had been in the hands of the
ratepayers when the vote was taken as to,
the purchase of the Esquimalt AVaterworks Company's undertaking more than
a year ago, the result would have been
different. It is also correct to say that thc
minority report, when carefully examined,
is just as conclusive in favour of purchasing that undertaking now as is the
majority report. The AVeek took a stand
on this question tive years ago which it
has never varied. Long before the Colonist or the Times had made up their
minds, The AVeek had investigated (ill the
available information, and advocated the
plan which is now favoured by the Committee, and which will undoubtedly lie endorsed by the Council. Now that sn happy a conclusion has been reached, it is nut
necessary to recapitulate all the arguments
in favour of this decision; and moreover,
every ratepayer should study the reports
for himself, but the general conclusions
may he summed up as follows: The City
must purchase the Esquimalt Waterworks
property because it cannot afford to wait
for the development of Sooke; ami because
without it the supply of water to the
largest section of Victoria District would
remain in the hands of a private corporation which, in addition to curtailing the
profits of the A'ictoria AVaterworks, is
opposed  to the spirit of the times with
respect to the ownership of the most important of all public utilities. In addition,
the legislation of last' Session rendered it
impossible for the Esquimalt Company to
extort an unreasonable price, even if they
had any such intention. Nothing could
be fairer than the resolution moved by Mr.
Sivertz in favour of acquiring the property under this legislation by arbitration.
Whilst endorsing this project in every
particular The AVeek maintains that not
merely Sooke Lake, but the Sooke watershed -hould he acquired for subsequent
exploitation by the City, and a clause in
Mr. Shallcross' able report, bearing on
this point, suggests that he is a convert to
the admirable scheme outlined by Mr. AA7.
E. Oliver during his mayoralty campaign,
whereby all the water in the Saanich peninsula should be corralled and distributed
for the common benefit of the various
communities, the surplus being utilized
for irrigation purposes. On this point
The AVeek will have more to say, but for
the present it is sufficient to urge the
Council to endorse the recommendations
of a Committee which has done its work
in a most thorough manner, and which
has arrived at the only possible conclusion.
WANTED-A TYPIST
Sir Robert Hadfield, head of HadfieM's
Steel Foundry, Sheffield, is well known in
many parts of Canada. He is immensely
wealthy, and one of the most energetic
and aggressive men of the age; but like
many other merchant princes he has discovered tliat there are some things money
cannot buy. Sir Robert has an enromous
business to manage, and ho finds that the
days are all too short for the purpose, so he
wants to economize time by securing a really expert stenographer and typist. For such
a "rara avis" he has searched the world
over and having failed in Europe, Canada
and the Eastern States, he has now betaken himself to Santa Barbara, where he
advertises that ho will give $5,000 a year
for an adept stenographer and typist who
can take correctly 150 words a miuutc
from dictation and subsequently transcribe
correctly. The opinion of The AVeek,
based on sonic thirty years' experience of
stenographers, is that Sir Robert will more
easily find the Philosopher's Stone. It ij
possible for an expert stenographer to
reach a speed of 200 words a minute on
easy dictation for a brief period; but the
stenographers who can take 100 words a
minute correctly and be relied upon to
transcribe without error at their leisure
arc few and far between, and in Boston
and New York tho few who are able to do
this easily earn as much as Mr. Hadfield
offers. American business men are continually paying increased rates to adept
stenographers. Indeed, there is hardly any
limit to what they are willing to pny, but
adept stenography involves a really first-
class education, a natural aptitude for
spelling and composition, a sound constitution, ii thorough grounding in a reliable
system id' shorthand, and some years' experience. Given these qualifications, there
is no calling in life which offers liner opportunities to a wage-earner. The trouble
is, especially iu Canada, that our young
people who select this calling are in too
great a hurry to earn money. They plunge
into a three months' course of instruction
before they are half educated, nnd expect
to get a situation when their average speed
is about 10 to 15 words per minute. It is
the same in stenography as in any other
• calling—there is plenty of room at the top
and high remuneration in view, hut though
''many are called, few are chosen."

At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNOER
We are. indeed fortunate to have a
man like Earl Percy as aide-decamp to our future Governor-General. He comes of a distinguished
ancestry; he also appears to be something of a genius, for The Colonist
of Aug. 25th informs us that his
grandmother married the daughter
of Henry Drummond. I wouldn't
dispute the Colonist for a minute,
but I must confess that the matrimonial alliance is somewhat unlikely.
* *   *
Some months ago I made certain
reflections with regard to the Church
of England clergymen in British Columbia in general, and in Victoria in
particular. I said that men did not
go to church because they could not
be sure of hearing a good sermon.
1 feel that after passing such remarks, it is up to me to commend
a good sermon when I hear it. I
made some mention in another column when my colleague "Bohemian"
was away, on the address delivered
by the Rev. Mr. Chambers of Winnipeg; it was excellent. On thc
evening of Aug. 7th the Rev. Silva
White of Nanaimo preached a really
good sermon; I know it appealed to
me, because I always enjoy hearing
a man who can speak good stuff and
speak it well. Last Sunday, Bishop
Perrin was in the pulpit. I have
heard him preach many times, but
only once, some fivc years ago, have
I ever heard him preach as well as
he did on the evening of Aug. 21st.
I make these remarks in the interests
of fair play.
* *   *
I am very short of complaints this
week. I have had one turned in to
me with regard to a prominent citi
zen's house on Beacon Hill. His
garden is causing grave fears of fires
starting, but until I have verified this
for myself I can't mention names
One man has asked me to suggest
that Christchurch Cathedral authorities mention the preachers for the
morning and evening services. The
music is always published in the
Sunday Colonist, but there is never
any mention of the preachers. I
think that these should be mentioned.
There are a whole lot of men who
would go to church if they knew that
they were going to hear a good
preacher. They don't take so much
stock as to whether the Psalms are
going to be "as set" or "alternative" as they do on the preacher.
Not so long ago The Colonist had a
lot of letters from various people
saying why they went to church.
I go to church to hear church music and to hear a good preacher; and
a great many other people go for
the same reason. Therefore the
churches would be wise to advertise
the preachers for the Sunday services.    Some do; some don't.
* *   *
The bitter, insistent cry of this age
is against the high cost of living,
which has been paraphrased by no
less an important authority than Mr.
J. J. Hill as "the cost of high living."
We all know that the complaint is
founded on fact, and if we arc wise,
we are all striving to practise such
economy as will counteract the evil.
Probably the two items of expenditure upon which we are ordinarily
expected to economise are clothing
and food. But I venture to think
that house rent and, in fact, rent of
any kind is at least as important.
There is a cry all over Canada that
rents havc gone up and the cry is all
the same whether the reference is
to stores, offices or dwelling houses.
I am enough of a political economist to know that if shop rents go up
the storekeeper will raise the price
of all his commodities. The wholesaler will do the same, and in the
end it is thc consumer who pays the
increase. The consumer, therefore,
is the party chiefly interested in reducing rents. The way to reduce
rents is to cheapen thc cost of building and the way to do that can be
well studied at several {joints in Vic
toria today. Perhaps the most instructive lesson can be learned at
the corner of Douglas and View,
where the economic contractor has
erected a wood-milling plant on that
half of the street which a paternal
government allows him to use. As
the mill only works in the day time I
do not see how il can be a nuisance.
At any rate it does not interfere with
one's sleep, except in the case of
those who indulge in "siestas." No
doubt it is an immense advantage
to the contractor, who pays nothing
for the use of the street, but would
have to pay rent or interest for the
use of land elsewhere. I do not see
why the idea should not be extended. Why should not the rock whicii
is so often blasted out of foundations
he crushed on the spot Why should
not the clay, which is often found
in excavations be converted into
bricks "in situ.' And why should not
a contractor be allowed to use half
the street and the whole of the
boulevard, where boulevards exist,
for the storing of his plant, lumber
and appliances Anything in this line
should effect an economy, cheapen
building and utilize the waste spaces
which were intended to add to the
beauty of "Victoria, the Beautiful,"
but which are now so generally neglected.
*   *   *
The  following    article    was  contributed    to    "The Week" and as I
thought    it    rather    "Loungeresque'
than  otherwise,  I   incorporate  it  in
my column:
Often one sees in the columns of
a paper long articles on feminine attire, but very little on the subject of
men's attire. Whether it is that
men's attire is not nearly as attractive as women's, or not in so much
variety, I am unable to state, but I
think it rather hard lines that men's
attire is so seldom commented upon.
It would perhaps be beteer to go in
for an entirely new line of dress
for men, to make it more interesting,
for instance, one's new 'straw hat
would look lovely trimmed with
pale pate-de-fois.-gras nuns veiling,
on a dark background of crimson
velvet, and a new style of coat for
men could be made of dark blue
taffeta trimmed with heliotrope coloured flounce, falling to the waist,
and caught up with scarlet runners
falling from the shoulders, training
gracefully down the back and ending in tassels of gold. How beautiful would a pair of trousers become
with pale blue insertion showing in
panels from the knee downwards and
hemmed with antique lace. One's
tie could be variegated by lace trimming, and one's waistcoat with a yellow border of baby ribbon. Besides,
look with what interest one could
meet one's best pal and go shopping
together like women do. His advice would be invaluable as to
whether one's overcoat should have
a watteau back or gussets, and how
evening dress should be trimmed.
The bridegroom at a wedding would
be no longer a nonentity, but would
jump at one bound into a person of
importance, and the male reporter
would describe his dress for the occasion somewhat in this wise: The
bridegroom, Mr. so and so, was elegantly clad in a lovely rose coloured
frock coat with crushed strawberry
corsage and hat to match, with black
ostrich feathers clasped with a large
paste buckle, his trousers were
trimmed with Valenciennes lace and
he carried a beautiful bouquet of
Marechal Niel roses, the bridegroom-
lets were clad in old gold liberty
suits, worn a la cupid, and they each
wore plaster of paris tie pins, the
present of the bridegroom. The
best man was attired in pale blue
chenille with suede gloves to match,
and a grasshopper tie. His boots
were by Walker & Co. of Bond
street, and his hat was a feathery
creation of perfect confectionery, by
the well known firm of Swindel &
Co., and must havc cost a small fortune.   Instead of the society papers
briefly   noticing  that   Mr.     was
seen at Mrs. Blank's garden party as
pertains* now, what an added lustre
would be given  to a mere man by
mentioning that Mr.  's new suit
was made of saffron coloured chintz

The Bryan Look
W. J. Bryan, the oft-defeated candidate for the presidency of the United
States, during his recent stay ln England, acquired a well-deserved reputation as a raconteur. His political defeats he takes quite cheerfully and
more than one of the stories he told
went against himself:
A northern man was visiting a southern town, and said he could tell a man's
political opinions by his face. The bystanders looked at one another with incredulity. "I seldom make a mistake,"
he went on. "You,"—pointing to one
of the group about him, "are a Roosevelt man."
"That's right," said the person indicated.
"You are a Cleveland Democrat," he
added to another man.
"Yes, that is so," answered he, and
the crowd began to look impressed.
"You"—addressing  a  third—"are  a
Bryan man."
"You're wrong there. I'm ill, that's
what makes me look that way."

The announcement made recently
by Toronto Saturday Night that that
journal had arranged for the publication of a series of articles by Dr.
Stephen Leacock and Dr. Andrew
Macphail, once more serves to remind us that Canadian writers are
now receiving deserved recognition at
home as well as abroad. Dr. Mac-
phail's published volumes, such as
"Essays in Fallacy," and "Essays in
Puritanism," to name only two of the
many, have now a circle of readers
both in Canada and in England whicii
the most optimistic would hardly
have predicted at the time of publication. The work of Dr. Leacock, who
is the author of "Literary Lapses," a
volume whicii has set the world smiling, is of a less serious character than
that of Dr. McPhail. His optimistic
humor sounds the note, and the reader laughs in spite of himself.
The articles, as arranged for hy Toronto Saturday Night, are twelve in
number, and will alternate from week
to week.   For instance, on Aug. 6th

The Menace
of Toronto
BY BOHEMIAN
Several things which have occurred this week seem to justify a
few remarks on a subject of growing importance, and one which will,
assuredly, get into the lime-light before very long. I have entitled it
if'The Menace of Toronto." This article is suggested mainly by two incidents. The first a vigorous protest on the part of "Saturday Night"
.'against what it very properly regards
as undue interference with the liberty
of the subject by would-be reformers. In a well-reasoned editorial in a
•recent issue "Saturday Night" complained of a Twentieth Century Renaissance of the Mosaic Law, with
its permament motto, "Thou Shalt
Not." The article pointed out that
:modern reformers, nearly all of
whom, so far as Canada is concerned,
have their headquarters in Toronto,
are abandoning their time-honoured
methods of education, persuasion and
appeal and arc engaged in an aggressive campaign which has for its sole
object prosecution, if indeed persecution be not a more fitting term. The
inevitable result of such a scheme is
to alienate public sympathy, and to
antagonize the combative element
which bulks so largely in human nature by invoking the strong arm of
the law where sweet reasonableness
alone could prevail.
strumental in closing the postoffices
throughout Canada on Sunday. But
although it has frequently been pointed out that this regulation has not
in the slightest degree benefitted
the letter-sorters on the inside, who
are kept at work just the same as
formerly, and that the only result is
to inconvenience the public, no official of the L. D. A. has come forward
to defend the regulation, or to explain why the Alliance rested satisfied with a recognition of tlieir demand which was purely spectacular,
and which did not secure a "day of
rest" for the workers.
The same spirit apparently is dominant in the councils of the Temperance party, which
"Compounds for sins it is inclined to
By damning those it has no mind to."
Whilst exhibiting in its persecution
of people who think differently, that
spirit which is characterised in the
literature of the Angelican Church
under the phrase "hatred, malice and
all uncharitableness," it weakens the
effect of such enactments for the regulation of the liquor traffic as have
received the sanction of public opinion, and can therefore be enforced.
Tn this instance, the iterance of the
"Thou Shalt Not" results mainly in
the removal of the worst features of
the drink traffic from the searchlight
of publicity, and allows it to flourish
behind the scenes. No district which
conies under the blasting influence of
this class of legislation is able to
maintain its self-respect, and in the
end it struggles-back to a more sane
method of control.
It is a fair criticism of the situation
to say that in all these respects "The
Menace of Toronto" is very real and
very formidable; the more so, because
unfortunately for the cause of real reform, it is easily the headquarters of
Canadian "wild-catting," high finance
and stock jugglery, as the pages of its
own press testify. And, unfortunately, the most conspicuous figures on
the directorates of the various reform
associations are the men who have
attained the most unsavoury reputations in collection with fraudulent
financial operations.
The hollowness    of    the   Toronto
growing, is one that may possibly
have escaped public attention. It is
that at the Methodist Conference at
Victoria, all the chief officials of the
church were selected from Toronto.
On every ground this must be a matter of regret. It is regrettable because it ignores the very claims of
men from every other Canadian Conference; it is regrettable because it
will, to some extent, weaken public
confidence in this great progressive
church; but, the chief regret of those
who are striving for the fullest measure of enligened progress will be the
predominance of the "Toronto spirt"
which it indicates.
Such a policy is especially disappointing at a time when the Methodist
Conference has seen fit to relax some
of its more rigorous rules arrtl, for the
first time in its history, to remove the
ban from those of its members whose
broad-mindedness permitted them indulgence such as dancing, theatre-going and card-playing, which had hitherto been regarded as "Anathema."
It is an ill omen that the policy of
the Methodist Church should at this
time be dictated from Toronto. In
the end, however, the good sense of
people may be trusted to prevail, and
as the baneful spirit of the Ontario
capital becomes more widely recognised, its influence must diminish.
A Local Option Town
A writer in the Western Clarion
has the following to say about Owen
Sound, Ontario, a Local Option town:
"Owen Sound is a very nice place. Its
principal amusement is Local Option,
a pastime, I found, that provides the
moral saviours of our race with a
feeling of having done their duty lo
mankind, and also the police force
and magistrate are plentifully supplied with cases of drunks, dives and
other accompaniments of prohibition.
Of course, I did not leave tliere because of Local Option. They say
thc unexpected always happens, and
if they imagined they were going to
make the town dry well the unexpected did happen. The whole thing is a
! farce, you have drunks at breakfast,
dinner and tea.   If you   are   around
THE COLOSSUS OP ROADS
The natural result has been to enact laws which cannot be enforced
because of an enlightened public
opinion is opposed to them. This reacts on all law, tendering to lower
it in thc public esteem, and to weaken
the general observance of such provisions as arc in themselves reasonable. It cannot be denied that such
a condition of affairs exists; nor can
it be denied that it is detrimental to
the best interests of the community.
These remarks have special reference
to the excesses of the Lord's Day
Alliance, and to some of the very
questionable activities of the Moral
Reform Association. For instance,
the officers of the Lord's Day Alliance admit that they were mainly in-
movement against intemperance is
evidenced by thc fact that the very
people who howl the most, vote a
political ancl not a reform ticket,
whenever the testing time conies, and
the congregations which are most
clamorous in thc cause of temperance
refuse to move one inch in the direction of attacking the production of
liquor. It is only in the distribution
that they appear interested. Brewers
and distillers, they regard as very respectable men, who may even bc pillars of the church, but in the eye of
those modern Pharisees all "publicans" must necessarily bc "sinner..."
The other incident which has occurred this week, and which shows
that "The    Menace of   Toronto'  is
one of the dry hotels, you get
plagued with confidential inquiries as
to whether the bartender is around,
is there any chance, have they got
anything. Perhaps luck favors them
and they get a drink of whiskey, or
rather something in a whiskey glass
which seems to bear a remarkable resemblance to turpentine or wood alcohol colored. Local option has just
driven the drinking behind closed
doors, but the drunks go about un-
blushingly. They arc not drunk; they
are doped. They look like a cross between a lunatic and a fellow half
stupefied through some drug. Still
I guess that's enough about it."

icturers can produce an article al-
mst identical in appearance and
hcaper in price, although not so

om appreciating the difference in

Great Britain's Shipping
Forty-eight years' experience in
merchant shipping in the United
Kingdom and the principal maritime
countries is presented by statistics in
a Board of Trade Blue Book issued
on Saturday last.
The gigantic extent of Great Britain's maritime supremacy is shown
in the following comparison of the
tonnage of British and foreign vessels
entered and cleared in the years i860
and 1908, the latter being the latest
year dealt with:
British—1860, 13,914,929 tons; 1908,
77.869,772 tons; increase, 63,954,849
tons,
Foreign—1860, 10,774,369 tons; 1908,
53,576,424 tons; increase, 42,802,055
tons.
The proportion per cent, of British to total tonnage in i860 was 56.4;
in 1908 it was 59.2.
The most important of the Britisli
ports in order of tonnage are: London, with a tonnage entered of 11,-
194,073; Liverpool, with 7,973,123;
Cardiff, 6,027,897; the Tyne ports, 5,-

Conspiracy in India
According to The Times correspondent in Dacca, a conspiracy has
just been unveiled in India whicii
dwarfs any of those plots that have
engaged the police during the last
three years. Thirty-seven arrests
have been made in the two provinces
of Bengal and even in Rangoon, for
Burma also appears to have become
affected. Among the prisoners are
not merely youths but men of mature years and position. One is a
prominent pleader and another is
Pulin Behari Das, who was among
the deported prisoners released by order of Lord Morley in February last
and one of the leaders of the so-called
"National Volunteers" in Eastern
Bengal.
"All arc charged," says The Times
correspondent, "with offences against
the Arms Act, and many of them also
with waging war against thc King-
Emperor, with sedition and breaches
of the new laws passed last year."
Letters and papers seized in Calcutta throw much light on thc political outrages in the two Bengals and
"confirm the opinion of thc authorities that they have unearthed a far-
reaching and active conspiracy for
the subversion of British rule, affecting every province in India."
Among the articles reported to havc
been seized are cartridge-making machinery and jewelry connecting the
owners with acts of political dacoity
or robbery to supply funds for thc
conspiracy.
"Canada's Coeur de Lion."
Lord Strathcona, High Commissioner for Canada, celebrated his
ninetieth birthday on Saturday, Aug.
6th., and was the recipient of numerous congratulatory messages, including several cables from Canada.
The Duke of Connaught and Mr. Asquith were among those who sent
messages, and cables were received
from Earl Grey and Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Rising about 8 o'clock Lord Strathcona spent his birthday much like
any ordinary day. He breakfasted
at nine, according to his custom, and
then proceeded to deal with correspondence and to receive visitors by
appointment. At 110011 he left his
house for the Canadian offices in
Victoria-street, S.W., where he remained attending to business until
eight at night. Then he returned
home to dine at nine.
For many years Lord Strathcona
has not taken more than two meals a
day. When engaged on the Labrador
coast in the service of the Hudson
Bay Company, he accustomed himself
to two meals a day, owing to the difficulty of obtaining and cooking
meals. Finding the habit suited his
constitution he clung to it throughout
his life, and it is no secret that he
owes his extraordinary ripe old age
to the extreme regularity of his habits.
In connection with Lord Strath-
cona's birthday, a book entitled "Canada's Coeur de Lion," was issued 011
Saturday last. It takes the form of
birthday greetings to Lord Strathcona and contains appreciations from
many eminent persons, including Mr.
Chamberlain and Lord Lansdowne. It
is dedicated by its author, the Rev.
E. W. Matthews, secretary of the
British and Foreign Sailors' Society,
to the memory of the late King Edward and to the young people
throughput the Empire.
The Coronation
The number of Colonial and Indian
visitors to this country for the Coronation will, it appears, judging from
the present inclination of his Majesty
and those who are advising him, be
larger than was the case for the occasion of the coronation of King Edward.
His Majesty's comparatively recent
travel and keen interest in Imperii!
matters cause him to be desirous to
extend the invitations as much as may
be convenient. It is probable, however, that a closer limitation will be
placed upon the number of servants
in attendance upon the Indian Princes
and other high functionaries, and that
this will be done quite as much at the
wish of the distinguished visitors from
India as from that at the Court. A
good many of these servants were
mistaken in their movements in London for persons of higher position,
and the caste question made it very
undesirable that they should have
such reception as they would not ob
tain when they returned home.
The problem of the social position
of Indian students when they go from
London to India in relation to Europeans in India is a delicate one. But
there is really no problem at all ir.
reference to the position of Indian
servants—if they are not given an incorrect idea of their importance while
they are in the country.

Dry" or "Selected Brut." G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Champagne is the best and purest of all wines, it will make
you smile and the blueness will leave your heart to
adorn the sky. Mumm's Champagne is a splendid
reviver. It puts a twelve inch smile on a six inch face.
Do you know that the word reviver spells' the same
backwards as forwards? You can also pronounce -
"Mumm" backwards as forwards . "Mumm" is a good,
quiet appelation worthy of the finest chamnagne produced. Silence is golden, so is Mumm's Champagne.
When people want the best Mumm's the word. G. H.
Mumm & Co.'s "Selected Brut" and "Extra Dry" are
well known to be thc champagnes used exclusively at
all the most prominent banquets and highest class
functions throughout the civilized world. G. H. Mumm
Mumm & Co.'s label is known on all the four continents as a passport of healthful reliability,—a true
reviver in every sense of the word. A smiling patron
is its best advertisement. Billiken said: "Smile and
say nothing!"   We say "Smile and say Mumm!"

Sidney Coleman volunteered to
have the flesh taken from his leg to
build up the injured arm and give
the injured hoy the chance of getting
the use of his arm and hand. The
flesh taken from Coleman was successfully grafted on to the injured

They took a little gravel
And they took a little tar,
With   various   ingredients
Imported from afar;
They hammered it and rolled it,
And when they went away
They said they had a roadway
That would last for many a day.
But they came with picks and smote
To lay a water main;
And then they called the workmen
To put it back again.
To run a tramway cable
They took It up once more;
And, then they put it back again
Just where it was before.
They took it up for conduits
To  run the telephone;
And then they put it back again
As hard as any stone;
They took It up for wires
To feed the 'lectrlc light,
And then they put it back again,
Which was no more than right.
Oh, the roadway's full of furrows,
There are patches everywhere;
You'd like to ride upon It,
But it's seldom that you dare;
It's a very handsome roadway,
A credit  to the town—
They're always diggin'  of it up,
Or  puttin'  of It  down.

it?"
hey had stopped upon the little
way through the trees and stood
ng each other. She drew a short,
ry breath.
[n what way does that concern
?" she asked hotly,
n many ways. I knew your
er so well. I have known you all
life. I—I—Cissy, you have treated
simply abominably in not letting
into your muddle, whatever it is."
II at once she held out her hand,
yon clasped it for a moment in
He knew Cecilia Waring far too
well to attempt to clasp it for more
than a moment.
"And now tell me," he said. "You
have only a moment before I catch
my death of cold. Is it something
sentimental? Have you fallen in love
with something quite ineligible? Or
with private property?"
Cissy shook her head.
"Oh, no! It's nothing of that kind,"
she said, smiling faintly. "It's nothing half as simple as that. To tell
you the truth, Sammy, it's pretty bad."
"Of course it is," said Kenyon—his
Christian name of Jacob had been in
early life almost universally discarded
for that of "Sammy"—"Bu ttell me
about it anyhow.   Is it—money?"
"Yes," she said, "at least, partly—"
"And you owe it to somebody—
some shop?"
"I owe it to Mrs. Paulham and—
and another person. It ought to have
been paid days and days ago."
"And you haven't got it?"
She shook her head.
"Ah!" He looked at her thoughtfully.   "Bridge, I supose?"
"Yes. For goodness' sake don't begin to lecture me, Sammy, or—"
"How much is it?"
"Only a couple of hundred pounds.
At least two-fifty. But it isn't only
Mrs. Paulham. The worst of it is
that I owe some to that hateful little
beast, Sedcombe.   Horrid little freak!"
"Cissy! Not Sedcombe? Surely you
don't owe money to Sedcombe?"
"Yes, I do." She turned again towards the house. "Don't talk to me,"
she said shortly. "I know just what
you must think of me without your
asying a word. I can't find the
money, Sammy, but on my honour I
never thought that that horrid little
beast would have made love to me.
He is supposed to be engaged to
Edith Paulham, you know. Oh, everything is too hateful." She gave a
miserable little laugh. "Why on
earth did you go pottering about the
beach this morning? Surely I know
my own business best."
He walked in thoughtful silence by
her side.
"Why do you always lose?" he said
presently. "You used to play a very
good game."
"I don't know. She and Sedcombe
play together, and their luck is simply appalling. You don't know—you
only came yesterday—but you will see
for yourself if you play with them.
Edith Paulham says it's that lucky
ring she always wears—a snake with
ruby eyes. Anyhow, everything has
been dead against me, and rather than
let Jack Sedcombe pay up I'd—I'd do
anything."
"Yes," he said. "Quite right. But,
as it happens, Sedcombe doesn't come
on at all in this act. I'm your very
oldest friend, Cissy. Let me square
things for you with these outsiders,
and we can settle up our own private
accounts afterwards. I won't say just
what sort of a silly fool I think you
arc, but all the same I remember you
in your pram, and that alone gives a
certain sort of* claim, doesn't it?
Now, that's all right. Don't say another word about it, but come into
the house and eat a huge breakfast.
Do you remember how hungry we
used to get last summer when you
were with my sister in Norway? How
tired we got of salmon, didn't we?
Oh, by the way, you must play with
these people again, I suppose. If I
may, I'd rather like to watch the
game."
"Sammy," said the girl, "I never
saw anything like your tact. You are
the kindest and most perfectly beautiful angel that ever was. We generally play at once after dinner."
"No, I'm not," said Kenyon as they
came to the side door. 'Angels don't
have sword cuts across their faces.
They quite often wear blue bathing
dresses though, and have shining
brown hair."
After dinner most of the men, tired
after a long day on the moors,
lounged idly in the smoking-room.
The women, with a few of the men,
were scattered about the long drawing-room, which, with its beautiful
views of loch and hills, ran across the
whole side of the house. The hostess,
an easy-going woman with an affected
artificially childish manner, flirted determinedly with Major Kenyon, who
fenced stolidly and leliberately with
all her very transparent little attempts
to draw him into intimate personal
talk. The husband was his friend—
the wife was merely the very undignified adiunct to the husband. Conversation languished a little in their corner of the room. All Lady Prateley's
flattering half-confidences and little
coquettish glances fell upon stony soil.
Major Kenyon answered her softest
murmurs in his ordinary voice, and
generally in polite monosyllables.
At one of the bridge tables Cissy
Waring played with a big overgrown
subaltern against Mrs. Paulham and
the gentleman who was popularly
supposed to be her kindred spirit.
Mrs. Paulham, a pretty, vivacious
little widow, was just as smart and
fascinating in her black and white
tea-gown as she had been a few hours
before in her very modern shooting
dress. She played with careless speed,
the cards dropping unhesitatingly
from her small restless hands.
Major Kenyon left his hostess after
a time, and, crossing over to the nearest bridge table, stood silently watching the play. The two men were impassive. Cissy Waring, with nervously heightened colour, played cautiously, and Mrs. Paulham laughingly
rallied her opponents upon their run
of misfortune.
Major Kenyon watched the play
steadily for some time. At last, while
Sedcombe was dealing for his partner, he bent forward.
"Is that the lucky ring, Mrs. Paulham?" he asked. "Next to the diamond one. Indian, I suppose. It is
wonderfully quaint and beautiful. I
am always interested in curious jewelry. Wuold you mind—might I look
at it for a moment?"
Mrs. Paulham, pulling off. the diamond ring above, handed the ruby-
eyed snake to Major Kenyon. He
took it with a word of thanks, and,
carying it over to the big standard
lamp, examined it intently.
Sedcombe, after glancing at his
cards, looked inquiringly at his partner.
Her recklessly decided maner
seemed to have forsaken her.
"I leave it to you, partner," she said
slowly after a moment's hesitation.
Then she turned towards Major Kenyon. "My luck," she said laughingly
—"I mustn't begin without my luck.
Do give me my snake, Major Kenyon."
He turned at once to the bridge table.
"Do you always have it on for a
declaration?" he asked as he held it
out."
Edith Paulham nodded.
"I feel quite lost without it," she
said as she slipped it into its place.
"Hearts," said Sedcombe.
"And the diamond ring," persisted
Major Kenyon.   "Is that lucky too?"
He stared straight at Mrs. Paulham,
and Cisy Waring, glancing up at his
face, wondered at the angry light in
his eyes.
Sedcombe laid down his dumy hand.
It held two honours and three small
trumps. Edith Paulham nodded and
smiled reassuringly in reply to her
partner's glance, and then, quite slowly, she turned to the Major.
"You are interested in rings?" she
said. "To tel! you the truth I don't
quite know why I wear the diamond
ring. Merely habit, I am afraid. Is
there anything else you would like to
know about them before we go on
playing?"
She smiled insolently. The man,
although he reddened at her maner,
held his ground.
"Not at present," he said calmly.
"After the game is over I should like
to talk to you for a few minutes about
them. They are very interesting
rings.
He turned away. After a moment's
uncomfortable silence the game went
on.
A couple of hours later Major Kenyon sat beside Mrs. Paulham upon the
deep window-seat at the furthest offend of the room. It was almost midnight. Through the wide open windows behind them they could hear the
quiet, regular swish of the incoming
tide. After a time the woman, who
looked white and tired, turned to her
companion:
"How did you first notice it?" she
asked abruptly.
"You touched the diamond ring
once when your hands were crossed.
Sedcombe hardly seemed to look at
you, but after a moment he made it
diamonds, n that hand you held four
small trumps and thc queen. Once
or twice you just tucked in the black
lace at your wrist—then it was a
black suit. You did nothing once,
and he declared no trumps—you remember, you made a slam. And
hearts—"
"Well, what about hearts?"
"You wcre in such a hurry to get
the ruby ring back from me before
your declaration that that made mc
quite certain. Of course rubies were
hearts."
The woman drew in her breath a
little.
"What arc you going to do about

it?" she asked at last in a dry voice.
"I suppose you are going to talk to
the Pratelcys, and make no end of
a fuss."
"No, I'm not."
"You're not?"
"No. Of course not. I don't attack women. But I do want you to
do one thing. You must tell Miss
Waring, and give her back her
money. Nobody else need know anything about it. I can promise, I
think, for Miss Waring, anyhow. As
for you, I think that you will not"—
he hesitated—"thieve again. For it
was theft, and you are far too charming a woman to be a thief."
She bent her head, examining a
book of autographs which lay upon
her knee.
"Why Cecilia Waring?" she asked
"Shall I tell you? Ithink I will.
I have lent her money to pay up what
she owes to you—you and Sedcombe.
I want to ask her to marry me. You
know what an abomination an obligation is—how it will otrudc itself into
one's mind. I want Miss Waring to
have no debts—and no obligation—
by tomorrow. Will you do this for
me?"
Edith Paulham stared at him.
"You are a very extraordinary
man," she said slowly. "So very extraordinary that I will not even try
to thank you. You like quaint
things. Will you have thc funny, bad
little snake? Please do. I—I shan't
bc using him again." She pushed it
into his hand. "Good-night," she
said. "I am going up to her room
now to—to remove the obligation."
A woman was upbraiding her husband
on his drunken habits and sayin-? he
was ruining his health.
"Don't be alarmed about me, my
dear," he said, "the doctor says I'm 'In

"You should have asked the doctor
to look at your tongue, and not your
nose,"  retorted his wife.

NGRATULATIONS
Undoubtedly the Methodist Conference
ich has just closed was one of the most
able in the history of that great Church.
\ characteristics have been, first, the
ninating and controlling influence of
. Carman, who is one of the ablest of
lng dignitaries. The British delegates,
st accustomed to model chairmanship
such assemblies, are full of praise for
manner in which the venerable ecclc-
stic steered the Conference through
eral thorny debates. That a man of
irscore should retain the mental and
lily vigour necessary for such onerous
:ies must he a matter of the highest
igratulation 'and felicitation, both to
. Carman and the .Methodist Church.
3 next feature wns the brilliant address
Dr. Haigh, president-elect of thc Brit-
Conference. A more intellectual designee has not been heard in church
:les for many years. His grasp of rc-
ous questions is thoroughly comprehen-
), profound and up to date, and his
lysis of the New Theology will not
a be forgotten by those who were privi-
id to hear it. The next feature was the
7 wise decision of the Conference to
lish the anomalous foot-note relating to .
Idly pleasures, and to substitute a
agraph whicii leaves all such matters
he individual conscience. This was a
sssary concession to the spirit of the
It involved no relaxing of the moral
•ration of church members; it removes
a fruitful source of hypocrisy, and lifts
the stigma under which the Methodist
Church has laboured for many years, of
preaching what a large proportion of its
members refuse to practise. At the moment of writing, the important debate on
Church Union is not concluded, hut the
trend of the remarks of the various
speakers would seem to indicate an academic assent to the principle, hut a deferring of any agreement as to the basis
of union. This means very little, because
all the Protestant Christian churches are
agreed on unity of effort, but when it
conies to amalgamating theological beliefs,
it is a different matter. The Week does
not believe that organic union would
benefit the churches or the communities,
because each church has distinctive characteristics which commend it to a lnrge
section of people, and each section will
lose something of comfort and instruction,
if these distinctive features bc sacrificed
in order to secure a theological compromise. It is rather significant thnt in the
course of the debate a very able speaker
pointed out that the tendency of church
union would be in the direction of the establishment of a National Church for Canada. Of course, the speaker had no idea
of such an establishment by law, but he
clearly recognized that the genius of the
movement involved a step towards autocracy. How many of the strenuous advocates of union realize what that would
mean in the end?
AVest Australia. They all went out under
contract to take up positions in various
families. The report states that they were
specially selected, that their average age
would he about 20, that they were in the
bloom of health, and that they all came
from rural districts of England and Scotland. The attractions held out to them
were a free passage, and an engagement
with wages varying from $16.00 to $20.00
a month. It is said that the Premier of
West Australia, Mr. Moore, had a hand in
making the arrangements. It is doubtful
if the need for this class of service is
greater at the Antipodes than in Canada,
and it certainly ought to be possible to do
something on the lines which Mr. Moore
has adopted. No doubt the result would
1)3 largely the same in all parts of the Empire, namely, that the majority of such attractive women would soon marry and assume domestic duties in homes of their
own; but, even so, the country of thei/'
adoption would gain enormously. Two
things are certain, that lhe only possible
offset to Oriental domestic service is tin1
bringing in of large numbers of young women, willing at any rate to start in this
position. If they marry and rear families
of their own, the time may come when
domestic servants of the right kind will be
a local product.
it is ahout time something was done to
prevent incompetent persons from driving motors on the public streets. Becent-
ly, too many ladies aud young girls have
been allowed to do this. The lady in question was obviously incompetent, and, in
addition, in the opinion of the bystanders,
lost her nerve at the critical moment. She
was on the wrong side of the road, she
cut a corner on tho wrong side, she did
not slacken speed, she smashed right into
the delivery wagon, which was close to the
curb on its right of the road, and it is a
miracle that the driver was not seriously
injured. A fortnight ago, Mayor Gaynor
of New York caused an Ordinance to
conic into operation in that city whereby
no person is allowed to drive an automobile without a certificate of competency.
Victoria cannot too soon adopt a similar
regulation, and meanwhile young girls
should be prohibited from driving at all.
A DOMESTIC PARADISE
It is rather interesting to read that two
weeks ago over ono hundred female domestic  servants left London  bound for
RECKLESS MOTORING
The writer of this paragraph witnessed
the accident at the corner of Yates and

THE CRICKET TOURNAMENT
As the cricket tournament is still proceeding it is impossible to do more than
comment on the increasing popularity of
I lie grandest of games as evidenced by the
entry of ten teams and lhe great interest
shewn by the public. .Never has Victoria
enjoyed such a week of goocl cricket. Fivc
teams have distinguished themselves—
Victoria, Vancouver, Burrard. Kootonay
and Portland. If Kootenay had had the
least bit of luck they would have been in
the final with Victoria. The hero of the
week is L. S. V. Yorke, who has played
brilliant cricket. Next week a full digest
of lhe games will be riven. 10
THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 1910
For An Autumn Wedding Present
=—THE "UTILITY" HOTPOINT ELECTRIC IRON
A most appreciable gift for any up-to-date bride. It attaches to any
light socket instantly. It irons everything except the heaviest pieces. It
heats curling tongs with same current. It boils a pint of water very quickly.
Put up in a most dainty ooze leather handbag. It is a splendid illustration of
usefulness, compactness, simpficity and durableness. Just the delightful idea
for a smart woman when travelling and equally useful when home.
An Electric Iron is now a necessity in the home. It would not only
make an exceedingly appropriate present, but our "Home Hotpoint Outfit,
price $s complete, would be an inexpensive gift. Come in any time to our
Salesroom and we will show you the "Utility" and the "Home" Hotpoint
Electric Iron in operation. It will delight you because it has many commendable features that other electric irons do not possess.

YACHTING NOTES
The sailing races under the auspices of the Victoria Yacht Club,
which took place last Saturday, provided a fair amount of genuine excitement. There was half a gale
blowing, with quite a heavy sea, and
conditions called for cool heads and
good seamanship.
In class A three boats crossed the
line at the starting gun, the Varuna,
Truant and Gwenol. It was a great*
■race between the Varuna and Truant,
but the Varuna settled all doubts of
the result when she gyhed round
Blotchie Ledge on the homeward
•leg. The Truant in going about got
into stays for a few seconds, otherwise she might have finished first,
but in any case the race would have
gone to the Varuna who had five
minutes time allowance iover the
course.
The Gwenol did not finish, owing
to an accident with her running gear.
In class B the Clytie and Oneida
crossed the line at the starting gun.
The weather was decidedly too
heavy for thc Oneida, as it meant a
•constant slosh of water over everything and continual bailing after
rounding the first buoy; her crew
showed their good judgment when
they left the Clytie to finish the race
alone.
: The Clytie, sailed by Fleet Captain Guy Temple, made a remarkably good showing. She finished the
course under jib and jigger in better
time than was made by the A class.
The manoeuvres of thc boats and
the race home between the Varuna
and Truant with the Clytie following closely was most spectacular, and
it is likely that in future there will
be many more of these interesting
events now that thc Victoria Yacht
Club has resurrected itself in such
earnert.
On Saturday, 27th inst., there will
be motor, boat races for whicli there
are a large number of entries. Mr.
G. Bulkeley, chairman of the Motor
boat committee has these races in
hand, and it is hoped that the owners
of motor boats will all turn out and
support his  endeavours.
It is expected that all the sailing
craft will be out to watch the power
boats. The Commodore's yacht
"Ailsa" is taking out a large party
and there will likely be many others.
NEW APARTMENT HOUSE
Construction has commenced on the
large and up-to-date apartment house
to be erected on the corner of Vancouver and Courtney Streets. A syndicate financed by English capital and
headed by Mr. Reade, now residing
in Victoria, and Mr. Cuppage of
Mount Edwards, County Antrim, Ireland, residing in Victoria, is responsible for the enterprise.
Thc building, which is on a most
ideal site, will be all that modern invention can make it in comfort nnd
convenience. All rooms will be
large and well lighted and a feature
of the kitchens will be an electric
cooking range, for which special arrangements are being made, and tenants will bc supplied with the latest
and most efficient means of doing
their cooking at a reasonable cost.
The building will be surrounded by
a grass lawn and shade trees, ensuring that privacy which is so rare in a
residence of this description. The
apartment house will be in charge
of Mrs. Cuppage and will be known
as "Mount Edwards".

Catches Large Shark
A Chinaman fishing off the Victoria
Chemical dock the other day, caught
a large eleven-pound ground shark.
One can imagine the astonishment of
the Celestial when he pulled it out.
Frank Guindon Makes Strike
Frank Guindon, the principal owner
in the Guindon group on the west
side of Moyie Lake, has made a lucky
strike within the last week. He now
has about 18 inches of ore in an open
cut which he is driving on one of the
claims. This open cut is in about 25
feet. ■
Baden-Powell
Baden-Powell passed through Preston last Wednesday week, and a large
number of sightseers turned out to
gaze upon the features of this famous
South African hero. There is a report current that he magnanimously
tipped the colored porter in charge of
the Pullman.
Many Coming to Canada.
London, Aug. 19.—Every first-class
and second-class berth on the steamers of the Allan and Canadian Pacific
lines for Quebec and Montreal is
booked to  the    end    of  September.
Even boats sailing to Newfoundland
or Halifax feel the glut of passenger
traffic. Among the passengers sailing
by the Lake Champlain yesterday
was a large party of agriculturists,
many of whom are interested in the
Canadian Pacific scheme of ready-
made farms.
Cheap Rate on Hay
Owing to the shortage in the hay
crop in Southern Manitoba, Southern
Alberta and Southern Saskatchewan,
a fear has been expressed in certain
quarters that there would be difficulty
in obtaining fodder in the Kootenay
district this fall. To obviate such a
possibility the C. P. R. freight department has made arrangements to
give a special cheap rate on hay to
western points from Ontario and
Quebec, where the crop this year is
unusually good.
Railway Work at Stewart
"We have five miles of grading already completed from Stewart inland, and we hope the whole sixteen
miles of track will be laid before the
end of this year. The building of
the dock, 160 feet by 60 feet, is now
completed and we are now busy
working on the approach over the
tideflats. The approach when finished will be S.goo feet in length and the
work is being pushed ahead with all
possible speed."
This statement was made to a
press representative in Vancouver
yesterday by Mr. W. H. Grant, who
is in charge of the construction.jvork
on the Portland Canal Short ;Line
railway, which is being built by D.
D. Mann and associates.
Mr. Grant further stated that the
two' engines, which are now lying
in Vancouver, will be shipped up to
Stewart on Sept. 10. The work is
not going on as rapidly as might be
wished on account of the difficulty in
securing labor.
