It   is   many   years   mv._
Dancing serious    minded    thinking
Dervishes. people first deprecated the
introduction of sensationalism and dramatic methods into religious
services. Such methods have been defended on the ground that they influence
people whose conscience cannot be aroused
by any other means. On the supposition
that the "end justifies the means," and
that every human life is worth a supreme
effort in order that it may be influenced
and directed aright he would be a bold
man who would undertake to denounce
sensationalism "in toto." Just as human
nature presents an endless variety, so it
must be appealed to from a thousand and
one standpoints. This no doubt accounts
for the multiplicity of sects which most
men deplore, and yet it is doubtful if they
do not furnish an outlet for varying religious emotions, and so tend to cement religious feeling. But while this is true, and
while it is the duty of the public press, a
duty more fully recognized and discharged
every year, to support every true religious
movement, and to seek to maintain all
those forces which make for the betterment
of social conditions, and the uplifting of
humanity, it is equally its duty to point
out the weakness and the folly of developments which, in the name of religion,
masquerade before the world and perhaps
unconsciously weaken thc influence of
forces which all right thinking men desire
strengthen. Apart from the fact that
the sacredness of religion imposes upon
all rational beings, reverence of manner
and devoutness, it is especially incumbent,
upon those who put themselves forward
as its apostles to manifest the spirit of
the founder of Christianity, and especially
to obey the Ten Commandments, even
if its omission from the Decalogue does
not bind tlieir consciences to the eleventh.
These considerations do not appear to
lave had any weight with the so-called
Evangelists, Crossley and Hunter, who
lave recently afflicted the city of Victoria
with a prolonged visit. Whatever else
may be said of their mission, and tlieir
work has been endorsed by practically the
whole of the non-Conformist Ministry of
the City, it is certain tliat they have left
lehind them a very unpleasant feeling, and
3ne whicli no amount of faithful labour
mi the part of the regular ministry will
•emove. These men, like most of their
Ik, are great believers in statistics and
it the end of their mission they carefully
abulated results. This was done in the
Metropolitan Methodist Church last Wed-
lesday evening. It ran thus: Item, 300
0 400 persons converted; Item, expenses
bf mission, $700 to $800. Item, one
testimonial subscribed to by the ministry.
Nothing was said about the other side of
he balance sheet whieh should have read:
[tern one, slander covering everyone who
liffered from the Evangelists. Rarely
lave public men so far violated the laws
if decency as Crossley and Hunter. Our
lorrespondent, "Lounger," in tlie current
ssue of Tlie Week, calls attention to three
nstances of the grossest uncharitableness.
3nc expects that a Minister of religion
ias at least read his Bible, and admits his
bligation to obey its precepts. Neither
f these men observe the injunction to
'bridle the tongue." On the other hand
'My indulged in the most extravagant
liraseology, n gardless of truth or decency.
iy what right do they compare Socialists
0 the Devil ? Tlie Week has as little use
rn- Socialists as anyone, and cannot rea-
onably be expected to possess as much
•liarity as an Evangelist, but would hesi-
atc a long while before condemning a
fellowman for holding extravagant views.
On this basis Hunter and Crossley have
consigned themselves to an eternity in the
Tropics. To dub all people bad who go
to the Theatre is as peurile as it is slanderous. It is an insult to the feeblest
intelligence in view of the fact that in
this enlightened age, even ministers of all
religious denominations occasionally attend. While Crossley and Hunter were
drawing this illiberal conclusion, one of
the oldest and most beloved Ministers in
the City of Victoria was seated in the
theatre with a party of friends thoroughly
enjoying the "Alaskan." Few men would
care to judge between Crossley ancl Hun-
AVeek is that they unsettle regular church
work, alienate thinking men and women,
aud suggest pruriency to youthful minds
in a manner which is all the more insidious
because unexpected.
Tlie AVeek wishes to call
the attention of property
owners and real estate
agents to the fact that during flic last year rents have been raised to
an abnormal figure in A7ictoria. In some
cases they were a little below a fair rate
before the movement took place, but, in
tlie excitement of the real estate boom,
advantage was taken to push them to an

ter, and the gentleman in question in the
matter of theatre-going; and the only
way in which the former can logically
condemn him is by posing as Pharisees
themselves. If they accept that deduction
no one will object. AVhether they do or
not, the role will be assigned to them by
all who are familiar with the facts. Much
might be said of their remarks on the
subject of dancing. Tlie Week knows
fathers of families whose daughters are to
be seen at social functions in Victoria
which include dances, who would have
been glad to tar and feather thc men who
had the effrontery to make suggestions on
a public platform, and in the presence of
young people, which would never have
occurred to any pure-minded man. One
shudders to think what the character of
these men must have been before they
were converted when after evangelistic
work extending over twenty-five years,
their thoughts can still harbour such nasti-
ness. They are the first men The Week
lias ever met with who view dancing as
a sensual orgic. The idea is so monstrous
that it is difficult to believe in tlie sanity
of those who could propound it. The" AVeek
would seriously suggest to the Non-Conformist Ministers of Victoria that they sit
down ancl carefully consider both sides of
this question, and then ask themselves
whether they are serving tlie cause of true
religion by endorsing the work of such
illiberal and uncharitable exponents as
Crosslev and Hunter.   The opinion of The
unreasonable figure. The result of numerous enquiries justifies The AVeek in stating
that the average increase has been not less
than fifty per cent, and probably this
figure about kept pace with the increase in
the price of real estate. Newcomers have
been greatly inconvenienced in consequence
of prohibitive rents, and where they would
have been glad to take a small house at
$20, or even $25, a demand of $40 has
forced them into rooms to their discomfort and disadvantage. The meridian is
passed. Wages and values of every kind
nre falling; tlie heyday of prosperity has
been succeeded by what will no doubt
prove to be a period of steady, but restricted business. Real estate values have
fallen very considerably, nearly all advertised properties arc being offered twenty-
five per cent, lower than three months ago,
and cash can secure purchasers at the
rates prevailing before tlie boom. "The
Western Investor," an undoubted financial
authority, declares that the real estate
business in Vancouver is dead. As far as
Victoria is concerned, all speculative buying lias ceased. Many of the amateur
agents have retired from the field, and
while those who understand the business
are able to dn a moderate trade, there are
no longer any fireworks. If property
owners and their agents are wise, there will
be a speedy reduction in rents. It is an
anomaly that these should remain at a
high figure, while all oilier values are falling.    The influx of residents from  the

Prairies is checked. It will not be resumed until rents are readjusted upon a
reasonable basis. Sometime ago when The
AVeek criticised the real estate agents for
trying to sell instead of to rent houses,
they resented it, ancl declared that there
were no houses to rent in the city. They
soon managed, however, to hang out
shingles with the notice, ' Houses to rent,
furnished and unfurnished." Today
there are plenty of houses to rent, even
judging from the newspaper advertisements, which is in itself an evidence that
rents are too high. It would be good
policy to remedy this without delay.
The wise man is tolerant,
Attar of and   readily   concedes   the
Roses. proposition that there may
be legitimate differences of
opinion on all subjects. Nine men out
of ten believe that the garbage being collected and burnt at the east end of the
James Bay Mud Flats is a stinking and
intolerable nuisance. The tenth man is
the Mayor who mistakes the odour for
"attar of roses." The representations of
thc press extending over six months, the
protests of the residents, and the petition
of the worshippers of the Reformed
Episcopal Church have beeu alike unavailing. Even with the completion of the
Empress Hotel in sight and the early
advent of a session of the local Legislature,
the Chief Magistrate is unmoved, aud with
perfect equanimity watches the pestiferous
incense curling heavenward. Even if
there were no element of danger, which
there undoubtedly is, it is a disgrace that
the residents in any civilized community
should be compelled to submit to a condition which is worse than any in Chinatown. In this connection The AVeek is
entirely at a loss to understand the supine-
uess of the City Council. The By-laws
are fully adequate to deal with the situation, but they are not enforced. Under
all the known conditions their enforcement could hardly be expected from tho
Mayor, but why the members of the Council should be willing to acquiesce in a
policy of "laisser faire" iu spite of the
repeated and continued protests of the
citizens, is a problem not easy to solve.
It is certain that no other city in Canada
has ever tolerated such a nuisance. There
is no reason, and no excuse for its continuance, unless it be that the Council
wishes to drive visitors away.
The proposal to relieve Mr.
A Good ,1 nines L. Raymur of the
Suggestion.       duties of Auditor and allow
him to devote all his time
to the much more important office of
Water Commissioner, has met with universal approval. Than Mr. Raymur, the
City does not possess a more capable or
painstaking official. His experience and
ability eminently fit hiin for the position
which is so onerous that it demands the
undivided attention of the best man available. Tliere are not a few who are firmly convinced that if Mr. Raymur had been
allowed a free hand years ago, A7ictoria
would have had a satisfactory water system. It is one of those departments
which demands expert knowledge, and
Mr. Raymur has become expert through
experience. When he is confirmed in the
ullice, as lie will no doubt be, a step will
have been, taken towards management of
.Municipal affairs by commission. Tliere
is no doubt that the principle will be extended in the near future, and that some
element of permanence will bo secured in
lieu of management by caprice. THE WKKK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1907.

From the Interior.
All the interior curling clubs are
re-organizing for the season. That
of Revelstoke has been preparing for
some weeks. They have suggested
that an Association be formed including Ashcroft, Vernon, Kamloops,
Armstrong, Enderby, Trout Lake,
Arrowhead, Golden ancl Revelstoke.
Although the most easterly of these
points, namely, Golden, is identified
with the Alberta Branch of the Royal
Caledonian Curling Club there is
every reason to believe that the
amalgamation will be carried through
successfully. In that event bonspeils
will be held alternatively at the different towns, those teams winning a
majority of the events being awarded
handsome trophies, many of which
already have been donated.
It may be of interest to Victorians
to know that they have residing in
tlieir midst at least three of the most
expert curlers of the interior of British Columbia. They all hail from
Golden where, for years, they were
engaged respectively in the lumber
and hotel business. During their residence in that town they acquired proficiency in thc old Scottish pastime
and are so enamored of it that it is
likely they will form a rink of their
own in order to compete in some of
the winter's bonspeils. I refer to F.
W. Jones, Mike Carlin and J. G. Ul-
loch. Thc former has purchased a
handsome residence on Rockland
avenue; Mr. Carlin also has acquired
property in the Capital City, and,
while Mr. Ulloch's headquarters,
properly speaking, are in Vancouver,
the fascination of Victoria's climate
and the comradeship of his former
townsmen induces him to spend much
of his time in that city. Their rink
will be a formidable one, but Gol-
denites look forward to their visit
and intend showing them, if possible,
that the climate of the Coast is enervating and that they cannot hope to
compete successfully with the mountaineers while lolling in the lap of
effete  civilization.
A peculiarly sad accident occurred
at Palliser on Tuesday last when
Jos. Bemia, an employee of the mill
at that place, was killed. He was
"swamping" when an immense tree
fell. He tried to evade it, but
stumbled over a stump. The falling
log struck his face with a crash,
breaking off short from the force of
thc blow. The end remained on the
body of the unfortunate man. Bernia
was instantly killed.
The Columbia Lumber company's
Mill at Golden, the largest concern
of its kind in the interior, closed
down for the winter last Saturday.
This is a new plant, lately installed
by an American syndicate and costing in the neighbourhood of $1,000,000.
It has a capacity of 160,000 feet of
lumber a day. Next year it is the
intention of thc management to.operate the plant to its fullest extent.
There are plenty of logs already available and gangs of men will be employed cutting on different timber
limits throughout the winter so as
to augment, as much as possible, next
season's resources. There is work
for three or four thousand men in
and around the mill when it is in
full blast.
Capt. Elliston, of Victoria, aide to
Col. Holmes, D.O.C., passed through
the interior some days ago inspecting the Rifle Associations in the various districts. He found the corps
well    organized   almost   everywhere
and the members most enthusiastic.
The captain was particularly impressed with the appearance of prosperity at Fernie. He predicts that
the town is destined to become one
of the centres of the interior. He
is of the opinion that the completion
of the Kootenay Central railway will
stimulate activity at Fernie, throughout the upper Columbia valley, and
all contiguous points.
The Jap in Canada.
We could have wished that the
mission of Mr. Lemiux to Tokyo to
discuss with the Government of the
Mikado the question of Japanese im-
migratiorl into Canada had been postponed for at least some months, so
as not to appear to justify the brutal
and factitious agitation of which Vancouver has lately been the scene. The
question is, of course, likely to prove
of considerable gravity one of these
days, but for the moment it is not
at all serious. Tliere is no political
question before the public today which
has been the subject of more sweeping misrepresentation than that of
thc influx of Japanese into British
Columbia. It has, for example, been
represented as a result of the Anglo-
Japanese Alliance, and Canada has
been pictured as once more sacrificed
on the altar of Imperial exigency.
The immigration, moreover, has been
portrayed as a veritable inundation
of yellow men threatening the whole
racial character of the Canadian population. Finally thc riots at Vancouver have been made to appear as
though they were a spontaneous outbreak of righteous wrath against an
intolerable evil. All this is the purest
invention. The only Imperial treaty
whicli allows to Japanese free ingress
to the British Empire was negotiated
in 1894, eight years before the Anglo-
Japanese Alliance was thought of,
and to that treaty Canada was not
made a party. It was only last year
tht the Dominion, being anxious to
participate in the advantages of the
Japanese trade, proposed to the Imperial Government that the Commercial Treaty of 1894 should be made
applicable to her, and for that purpose a special treaty was negotiated
with Japan. Although that treaty removed all restrictions on Japanese
immigration it did not evoke a word
of protest. It was ratified by the Dominion Parliament after a searching
debate, and not one syllable of doubt
or criticism was heard from the British Columbian representatives or
their constituents. Hence it is clear
that only twelve months ago Vancouver was quite unconscious of the
dangers of Japanese immigration. Nor
is this a matter of inference only. It
is indisputable that the immigration
has not been on a very formidable
scale during the past year, and it has
been proved beyond doubt that the
agitation against it which assumed so
disgraceful a form a few weeks ago
was not of local origin, but was organized by immigrant agitators from
San Francisco and subsidized by Yankee Labour Unions. In these circumstances we regret thc Canadian mission to Tokyo. If there had been any
prescient statesmanship in Ottawa the
questions which Mr. Lemieux has now
been instructed to discuss would have
been thought of and provided for last
year. To attempt to deal with them
now is to place a premium on riot and
disorder.—Reprinted from the London
politics she will have to act with more
restraint or tliere will be trouble.

Some of the Problems Which Confront
Nation Builders.
(Specially written for The Week)
From the point of view of a member of one of a nation of workers, it
is regrettable that the term "Labour
Party" should be applied to one section of this vast working community.
It is yet more regrettable that this
pne section of enormous aggregation
J:of workers, should in a measure be
associated with what is usually called
"Socialism." To propagate the creeds
which one finds in the ever-centralized
portions of the old world, and to fling
them into the cauldron of public life
in this young country, where the
areas of undeveloped, arable lands
are vast and population scanty,
savours of something closely approaching comedy. One knows full
well that human nature is so constituted that it is easily attracted by
high sounding phrases and alluring
prospects of wresting from the successful worker those good things
which by his own pluck and energy
he has obtained. Social evolution is
just as inevitable a process as the
natural evolution which lies at the
root of all progress in the inanimate
British Columbia is a Province of
a great Dominion which is troubled
at the present moment with those
"growing pains" incidental to a rapid
expansion which threatens the health
of the state. But British Columbia,
is in reality suffering from more than
the ills associated with that period
when growth is a species of malady,
as well as a blessing. The groundwork of the Anglo-Saxon community
should be the cultivation of the soil.
The very richness of the other natural
resources of this Province, have resulted in her beginning her development at the wrong rung of the ladder.
If every tree which has been cut down
for the mills, had meant a space
cleared for cultivation of the rich
loam of the forest lands, the cry of
the moment had not been heard. That
enormous prairie province at her
gates has tempted this province to
overlook the needs of her own people,
and the proper development of the
"In the last sixteen years enough
people have come into this Province to have insured a healthy and
permanent development," was the
substance of a statement by a Socialist speaker at the City Hall in
Victoria on Nov. 12th, but he left it
to be inferred, that this influx and
exodous was due to the presence of
the Oriental in our midst—that Oriental who is supposed to have
"crowded out" the white man. What
other causes may have been at the
root of this migration of a mass of
humanity? To begin with, the attraction of numbers in the huge Republic on the borders of our country, and the activity of railroad agents
who have lured millions of immigrants from Canadian to American
Regard the nature of the industries
which attracted people in the first instance. Mills may shut down, mines
are often closed, and the migratory
habits of those who listen to the "call
of the West" may bc reckoned as
important factors in this movement
of huge bodies of people. These industries named are inter-dependent
upon the transactions of the financial
dealings of many men, while the cultivation of the soil, means permanent
settlement and steady aggregation of
wealth, and it means more than this
—the education of the worker of the
soil is wider, it necessitates a certain amount of administrative as well
as manual power; it is the great lever
in promoting what is the only true
"Socialism" for the spurious article
which is destructive rather than creative, emenates from the ever-centralized portions of the universe. The
older provinces of Canada havc been
built little by little on the basis of
thc agricultural community, and British Columbia is suffering from thc
weakness of its basic structure.   Take
the fishing industry, always an unstable one, which does not attract
to its necessities the highest standard
of mankind. Nor yet, do those other
two great industries, lumbering and
mining, bring to a country, the very
best material for population. It is
only today, when the rest of the Dominion of Canada is embarking upon
her real industrial career when the
hum of the factory machine is heard
throughout the land, that British Columbians are staring the truth in the
Half a century of vast industrial
enterprise, in the harvest field of immigration efforts, the British Isles,
has resulted in a dearth of men from
rural districts. You cannot get the
good old seed which fifty years ago,
represented the bulk of the migrants
from the British Isles, to develope
the soil of this Province. The competition of the vast British Empire
for agricultural labour is before you,
the facility of transport, scatters what
material there is to the four winds
of heaven.
Education of the masses has resulted in the love of the urban hive,
rather than the joy of individual existence on the land.
There is not a country in Europe
where the Government is not employing every inducement to its people
to return to the land. So great has
been the drain upon the rural supply
of labour, that in several European
States, jealous watch is kept upon all
Colonial immigration agents. The
continent of North America alone has
been sufficient to make that strain
severely felt.
Religious persecution in olden days
was one of the great levers in the
de-centralization of communities.
That great wave of democratic feeling which swept Europe after the
French Revolution and the declaration
of independence in the United States
has permeated to the very root of
all civilised countries. What was once
an incentive to migration has now
become a barrier.
To live in London is to learn that
the so-called Labour Party are pursuing a policy which will result in
a further hinderance to emigration.
The influence of Colonial Governments has brought about a sort of
bloodless social revolution in the
In vain a Colonial calls "Forward
to the land" for the cry of the two
great political parties in England today is "back to the land" and they
devote their energies to the question
of "small holdings." There has been
a revival of the most ardent national
aspirations, in the midst of all the
blaze of Imperialism. The Welshman, Scotchman, and the Irishman, is
more intensely patriotic, than in days
of old. It is not only the East that
is awakening, for the inhabitants of
the British Isles are awakening to
the possibilities of their own countries, to the treasures which lie before them in our own land, and even
thc leisure classes begin to murmur
to the Colonial who preaches emigration, "You are taking our best
from us." All the activity which we
find among emigration societies in
Great Britain, aims at using the Colonies for the purpose of de-centralization; they are not occupied with the
requirements of these great fields of
human activity; they are simply set
upon remedying the evils which exist
in the great over-crowded cities,
where the industrial populations have
been for half a century, moulded into men of one accomplishment which
leaves them helpless to turn their
hands to any other branch of labour.
If one of the great parties in England, were genuine Imperialists they
would devote their attention to the
scientific adjustment of this most important question of the settlement of
British Columbia by British people.
State-aided emigration, would be a
prominent   feature   of   their   policy;
they would recognize the cry of British Columbia for an "All-British
people" and aid her in the task of
developing, not only the untold riches
within her Province, but a race of
people who, in the moment of need
would give her that support which
can never be found in the overcrowded cities of the old land.
Scientific distribution of immigrants
among the great self-governing Colonies has never been rightly considered. There is a Guild of Science
lately formed in England, which embraces ' every well known scientific
light in the Empire, within its organization. These are the people to
guide and direct the efforts of "Empire makers." As it is today, the
effete the de-vitalized specimens who
are considered fit settlers for the
great Northwest of Canada, where
the largest capacity for resisting under rigorous climatic conditions, are
required, should be transplanted to
the milder portions of the Empire,
and only those who represent "no
one hard" of the human race should
be put forward to brave the rigors
of arctic winters.
Never can there be the continuity
of settlement in this Province which
is found in a land of plains. Each
province in Canada has its own particular problem in regard to settlement to work out. Those who have
the interests of this country at heart,
have a life-time of study before them.
The up-thinking method of transplanting of the human race, has resulted in a curious impasse. We pay
enormous sums to procure population
for this country but were ten times
the energy and money, expended upon the distribution of the people we
bring the value of that expenditure
would be doubled. The problem regarding Asiatic Labour in Canada, is
one which should engross the attention
of that much abused, but sometimes
most enlightening, body a "Royal
Commission" Canada as a whole, has
interests at stake in the question of
the hour—and that question has many
Asiatic agitation in the least developed Province of the Dominion has
successfully demonstrated to the
most unintelligent little Englander
that Imperial unity is not a sentiment, but a reality. The lever
pulled at Vancouver agitates the delicate wire of high diplomacy in Downing street. Was the force which
moved that lever found in our own, or
a hostile country? Did the prohibitive tax on the Chinese immigrant,
emanate from the saloons in a British Columbia town, or did the motive power come from Hawaii where
jealous planters felt the strain upon
their supply of Chinese Labour? Who
can say where this movement originated, and where its bearing upon Imperial matters may cease. The network of telegraphic cable wires, thc
endless channels of communication
which link the whole civilized world,
are but a prototype of the extraordinarily complicated mesh of inter-
dominion, inter-imperial and international, interests which Canada at
this stage of her growth is called
upon to face.
It is curious to see fears besetting
men of education and enlightenment
which are founded upon a tradition
which is more or less relegated to
the superstitions of the past. The
"yellow peril" whicli menaces those
nations which stand between Europe
and the Orient, strikes every thinking
mortal, but are they not minimized
by the fact that even as wc, as au
Occidental people, are awakened to
visions of what remains to be done
in our own countries, so the "awakening" of the East may mean that
these people will also find more than
a legitimate field for their activities
in their own nations? Who a hundred years ago, would have dreamed
of the reception which was accorded
the recent Chinese mission to England: Who a hundred years ago,
could have imagined thc picture of a
Japanese battleship, under the guidance and instruction of British officers? Which of our ancestors foresaw that England would make Japan
the pawn in the game between Russia
and herself? Surely, as we survey
t!i<' events of the last twenty and
thirty yars, wc may indulge in the
hope  that  the  destiny  of  this  great
Empire, is so clearly assured that
we need not harbour that ancient
nightmare of a "yellow invasion."
Our legislative machinery is sufficiently elastic and adaptable to prove a
weapon of defence, to adjust when it
necessary, protective measures to regulate immigration on its right basis.
Sixty years ago, the industrial workers of England, rose and wrecked the
machinery which they believed threatened their powers as bread-winners;
sixty years hence the class of men
who today abuse the idea of Chinese
labour being as necessary for the
wider development of this Province,
may be thc very ones who call out
for workers from the Orient, those
ants, whose labour produces the
mounds upon which the agriculturists can raise their produce? The
writer was present at a meeting at
the Colonial Institute in London last
summer, when the merits and demerits of the Australian Commonwealth was discussed by the foremost
men of that country. One speaker
asserted that this confederatior has
come just too late, another that it
had come just too soon, but all were
agreed that were the vote of the
people as a whole taken, without political prejudice being allowed to
sway the matter, that Confederation
would be unanimously sustained.
How would a free vote on the admission of Chinese really turn out?
The Japanese question is on a different basis—for the development of,
what may be termed, primative industry, is not dependent upon their presence in the country. As a nation,
their power is far in advance of the
Chinese, and when China reaches the
height of Japan, it will be time for
Canada to consider her position.
What this country needs, is labour
such as a primitive people can afford
to give, we need it to attract to this
Province those who have the requisite
capital to develope a land which presents overwhelming obstacles to the
penniless land-seeker. It is this class
of settler who will develop the country on the proper basis. It is the
worker of the soil who should receive
first consideration at the hands of
the Government, for they are the
citizens who put more capital into
the country than they can ever take
out. In legislating for the agricultural section of the community, you
legislate for the solid basis of the
Anglo-Saxon community. Once the
balance of power leaves the soil, and
a nation becomes merely an industrial hive of smoking chimneys, and
whirring machinery, conditions reign
which upset economic theories. You
find it in England today, where we
are told that trade returns have never
been more favourable, and yet the
condition of the great mass of the
people is deplorable. Vainly may
Socialists rave against the constitution of society; they have fostered
and do foster the very conditions
which they deplore. To demand for
the worker the full product of his
labour, and yet concentrate that energy and power which makes a nation,
into one narrow channel is to evolve
an abnormal condition of affairs,
which results in all the evils of over-
centralization. If there is one sound
spot in the community where the
"frenzied finance" of the present day
is powerless to work wreck and ruin
it is in the home of the farmer. Thc
Government recognizes his economic
value in the importance which it attaches to its Departments of Agriculture, but our failure to recognize the
way in which our departments of education strive to minimize the good
done by this branch of Government,
is, to say the least of it, curious. We
are training our boys and girls; we
arc directing their mental energies
towards other ends than those of
agriculture. Look at our school reading books. Here students are taught
to admire and emulate thc example
of men who have found an outlet
for their prowess in every other field
than  thai  of agriculture.
Our newspapers give up columns
to tiie discussion of problems which
affect that section of people in the
community who designate themselves
as tin* "Laboyr Party." Politics,
Amusements, Scandal and Finance,
occupy thc largest share of thc ncw-

The Simple Life.
A week ago I found myself a passenger on the Princess Victoria en
route for Vancouver. 1 tried to secure a state-room, but by reason of
the presence of forty-five delegates
to the Consevative Convention, had
to content myself with an upper
berth. Under the circumstances, I
always experience a not unnatural
curiosity as to who my travelling
companion may be. On occasion I
have found it more convenient to
turn oat, and pass the night as best
I might in the Saloon, but on this
trip no such unpleasant experience
fell to my lot. On the other hand, I
made a valued acquaintance and
learned a delightful lesson.
My companion turned out to be
an old gentleman well on in the
seventies who was paying his first
visit to England since he left it fifty
yenrs ago, and be was still an unspoilt
child of nature, simple, kindly, transparent, loving. Not being accustomed to travel, the dear old gentleman could not sleep, and we spent
mud' of the night in exchanging mutual reminiscences. He left Peterboro fifty years ago and sailed from
Liverpool on a small schooner. After
a voyage of two months he landed in
Mexico, crossed the Isthmus of Panama and sailed up the Goast to San
A year amid the gold excitement of
California was sufficient, it brought
him plenty of experience, but nnt
much money. He travelled on to Victoria, and in 1858 settled on the
Saanich Peninsula. With the exception of two years in Cariboo he has
spent the whole of the last forty-
eight years in farming. The simplicity and sincerity with which he
narrated his experience as a rancher,
were deeply interesting and refreshing.
During that long period lie has seen
many neighbours come and go. Remittance men who never did a day's
work in their life until they came here,
have tried to make both ends meet on
a big farm with a small income.
After spending their money, and often mortgaging their remittance, they
have moved on.
Other men, with more money, but
no more knowledge, have spent their
fortunes in the vain attempt to learn
the oldest of all trades, husbandry.
"But," said the old man, "I have
nothing  to   complain   of  after  fifty
years of hard work, thank God I
have my health and strength, a good
farm of two hundred and eighty acres,
all under cultivation, and no mortgage
on it. I have a fine orchard, plenty
of pure spring water, cattle, sheep,
and horses, and a comfortable home.
When I came here I only had a few
hundred dollars."
And then the beautiful old face
put on a tenderer expression as hc
"You know, I have reared a large
family too, and they are all nicely
settled, but last January in the cold
snap I lost my wife, and you see we
had lived together a great many years,
and it makes such a difference. They
are all very kind to me, but it is not
the same, and I can't rest. It's bad
enough in the day time moving about
and looking after things, but it's at
night sittin' by the fireside I miss
her most, then we used to talk over
everything, and now I am very
The pathos and the pitifulness of
it all! what a picture the few artless words of the old man painted, the
epitome of a lifetime—youth, vigour,
ambition, travel, pioneer work, love,
marriage, family, material prosperity,
waning power, the shadow creeping
on, nightfall, darkness, loss—waiting.
And yet how could man better
spend his life? What is there missing from the rounded story of a full
existence? This man has discovered
the secret of a happy life, and it is
the simple life. He has lived next
the soil, and the coming and going
of the seasons, dependence upon the
operation of the laws of nature, the
joys of home life, the blessedness of
children, and the peace of the fireside
have developed and perpetuated the
finest qualities of humanity. At peace
with all men, without resentment for
any, not even for the fate which has
left him lonely, he looks upon his
life's work as completed, and only
awaits the end.
I was charmed with his last confession; it was made without the
slightest trace of self-consciousness;
said he, "there is one thing I wanted
to do, most of my relatives in the
Old Country are dead, but I have a
brother. He writes me sometimes,
and 1 write him. But though he has
never told me, I have a feeling that
he's not as well off as I am. I
have got plenty and to spare, and I
thought p'raps I can do him a little
good, and so I am going to see him.
P'raps I shan't feel so lonely either
after 1 have seen the old home and
talked to my brother." What a
beautiful impulse, surely a benediction on a blameless life.
Many other tilings the old man
.old me, and when 1 related them to
a lady whose acquaintance I had the
honour to make on the return journey, and I saw her lips quiver and
her eyes heavy with unshed tears, I
knew that the little story possessed
all the elements of greatness, and
that the simple life is not merely a
hackneyed phrase but has a meaning
and possesses a charm all its own,
for which the busy and burdened
world sighs, and sighs in vain.
Some of the Problems Which Confront Nation Builders.

paper reader's attention. Who endeavours to instil into the minds of
the young in our schools the relation
whicli the tiller of the soil bears to
society and the state? What pap^r
points out to the public that the pillar upon which the State rests is the
real "working man" the man who develops the soil? The circumstances
which surround the man who receives
from the State his hundred and sixty
acres of land, and develops them for
the good of the State and the upkeep of his family, forbid that he becomes one of a "Union" whose leaders occupy the public platform and
who clamour for their rights as a
body. But they are there, silent and
plodding, like the forces of nature
which unconsciously mould men's
lives. Injure this core of the normal
foundation of the community, and the
blow will fall on every class within
the state. Legislate mainly for the
middle forces of the economic body,
the Trades and Labour Unions, the
Manufacturers, and the thousand and
one industries dependent upon the
stability of the groundwork of an
Anglo-Saxon community, and the
price will be paid for stupidity.
How far will the present "crash"
in what is called the Industrial
world result in turning the activities
of the men bereft of their usual employment towards the land? How
many of those who have worked in
mines and mills now closed, will turn
to the earth for sustenance, and learn
the lesson which it teaches? In a
province where agriculture is to be
steadily pursued for eleven months
of the year, surely men will realise
that a steady wage represents twice
the value of the high wage dependent
upon a thousand and one far-off influences for its continuance? Of what
use is our vaunted system of education if it misleads men as to what
is the basis of economic gravity in
this great and fertile province. No,
we are dazzled by "fictitious values"
the high wage, which is not a high
wage in view of its limited purchasing power and its uncertainty of continuance.
The earth is a hard task master,
but its reward is stability of existence,
independence of far-reaching influ-\
ences, and its capacity for moulding
at once the worker and the administrator. Let the public press of this
country devote its energies to bringing those who are already in this
Province to become workers on the
land, instead of seeking afar for
settlers, and they will hear less of
the weighty problem which engrosses
public attention to the detriment of
public welfare.

"When you hear a girl boasting of
the attention she receives," said a
shrewd woman, "you can generally
conclude she receives little. The
wise girl keeps very quiet on this
subject. She does not boast of every
gift and compliment she receives, and
the result is that she gains a great
deal of very pleasant general attention. A man feels he can be in her
society without the entire circle of
his friends being made immediately
aware of the fact."

Notes on
The Old Land.
Angel Hotel, Helston, England,
July ist, 1907.
It is Sunday and 1 am not going to
Church, and as everything is closed
down tight here, this part of England being the stronghold of Methodism, you can therefore blame these
circumstances for being inflicted with
another letter. I received yours of
the 12th ult. yesterday. You are right
and I was wrong about the inconsistency*—the boot was on the other foot
—I am afraid that through thinking
so strongly on religious subjects as
I do, I allow my judgment sometimes
to be warped that I do not give my
opponents justice, but I also am of
opinion that I am fair-minded enough
to acknowledge an error. Of course
it is inconsistent for one (an agnostic) to take an oath and then expect his evidence to be looked upon
with great weight by reason of taking such oath when he acknowledges
that the taking of the oath has no
effect upon him. 1 should have seen
that, but at the same time is it not
inconsistent also upon the part of
the "Godly" to be willing to believe what one says under oath as
as regards one's religious belief, and
yet cast doubts upon that portion of
one's evidence referring to secular
matters for the reason that the oath
Jias no value with the witness. Does
it not look as if there was inconsistency  on  both  sides?
Strangely in the case in question the
Judge allowed the evidence on the
ground that the opposing party evidently had knowledge beforehand of
the witness' religious belief and
should have objected to the witness
being allowed to testify before he
was tendered the oath and in the
event of the witness stating that he
believed in the efficacy of an oath and
that if his statement in that respect
was doubted, it would be open to the
opposing counsel to prove by inde-
dendent witnesses that the proposed
deponent had not religious beliefs by
statements he had made to that effect.
On maturer thought I should not
have used the word "strangely" above
for the reason I think that it is the
only consistent course to pursue in
a case of the kind with the law as
it is. But you will agree with me in
considering tbe law as an atrocious
injustice, practically branding the like
of you and me as being unbelievable
as witnesses in a Court of Justice, because we have no opinions rather negative or positive upon the question
of a future life, of rewards and punishments. When you answer this,
tell me whether you agree with all the
above arguments.
Well, since I last wrote you we
have visited three more places, Bodmin, Lanliviry and Fowey, all interesting, especially the latter. It is
the quaintest and most old-fashioned
little town I was ever in. On the
coast at the mouth of the Fowey
river, dates back of King John's time,
and I do not believe has changed any
until a few years ago when tourists
realized its attractions. Picture to
yourself the main street in no place
wider than fifteen feet with side ones
running off about ten feet wide, the
former in some parts cut clean out
of the cliffs, the houses putting one
in mind of the pictures of the ancient
cliff dwellers' habitations in Arizona.
It overlooks a tiny harbour they used
to pull two enormous chains upon the
occasions that the Foweyites had to
turn tail to tlieir enemies, which to
tell the truth did not often happen;
they were not built that way. Before
Liverpool was, and even when Plymouth and Portsmouth were considered large shipping ports, they could
not hold a candle to Fowey. At the
time of the Armada the Foweyites
furnished forty-seven ships, two-thirds
as many as Portsmouth and Plymouth
combined supplied, one of these, the
Francis, commanded by one Rash-
leigh, performed miracles of valour.
For their services they were given
almost carte blanche as regards privateering, and they were evidently
rather unsophisticated enough( or too
ignorant of the meaning of the two
terms) not to realize the difference
between that and being pirates, for
they certainly wcre the latter, only
they did not prey upon their own
countrymen, but no matter whether
England was at war with France or
Holland, it made no difference to the
Foweyites, their depredations never
ceased, notwithstanding all the representations on the subject made to
their own by the respective foreign
Governments. To such an extent did
this attain that they became evidently
a national nuisance with the consequence that their privateering privileges were taken away. From that
date Fowey declined, if he could not
be a pirate tliere was no use for enterprise, was evidently the adage of
the Foweyite. In the meantime, however, the Rashleigh family had made
them stake, as we say out West,
just like the Campbell clan on the
borders. The history of the Rashleighs is that Fowey, the old "Ship
Inn" on the Main street, situate on
a "double corner" (double corners
wcre apparently looked upon as desirable  sites  for  residences  in  those
days just as they are in Vancouver
today, another instance of history repeating itself), was their private residence, but they long ago flitted out
of the town and built a great mansion some three miles distant. The
line tombs in Fowey churchyard are
nearly all Rashleigh, but how traits
of character will come out, the father
and mother of the present generation
are buried on thc top of a hill overlooking the ocean at the mouth of
the harbour into which tlieir ancestors brought many a rich Spanish or
French prize. Even when dead they
evidently wanted to sleep their long
sleep close to what might almost be
called their natural element. I was
particularly anxious to get a photo
of the old Inn, but could not on
account of the weather, the sun was
never out while we were there; in
fact it has been scarcely seen in all
England for the last two weeks, and
terribly cold.
How my wife and I envy your
country men and women in being able
to feel happy and comfortable when
we are nearly freezing. I should
imagine  they   will   not,  however,  be
able to stand the temperature of	
as well as we will.
I am gaining lots of knowledge
and experience my dear sir, about
your countrymen, i.e., if the Cornish
are a fair sample. For one thing
they are the most uncommunicable
and unenquiring lot of beggars I ever
met. They do not appear to be at
all inquisitive about other countries,
nor do they seem to care to give one
any information about their own.
They are very polite, will always
answer your questions, but it ends
there; so that obtaining information
from them is like drawing eye teeth,
and this part of England is so interesting, it has such an ancient his
tory. Consequently to one like myself who has such a capacity for receiving information, it is very disappointing to do with such people.
Why even the barber is not loquacious. He never opens his mouth, and
you know what they are on our side.
In the way of a digression, talking
of barbers, there is not a decent one
in thc whole of England; they are
simply barbarous in the way they
shave you, and would you believe it,
not even in the best places in London havc they a proper barber's
chair, nothing but a common ordinary old-fashioned armchair with a
rest on the back of it. Thank God you
are out of your misery in about five
minutes, which is the average length
of time consumed for a shave as
against fifteen tO twenty minutes
with us. One could not stand the
unnatural position longer. I noticed
in the "Standard" the other day the
Secretary of the Barbers' Union of
the United States was in Lodon looking over the field with the view of
invading England. He stated that
after visiting thc best shops in London he could quite understand why
Englishmen as a rule shaved themselves and did not patronize barbers'
shops, that there were only two places
in the whole city where one could recline with any degree of comfort, and
that it was something awful and
would never be tolerated on bis side
of the Atlantic the way in which a
victim was handled.
He also stated that if his report
was favourable, a company intended
to open up American modern barbers' shops all over England, and
that he was going back to advise
them to at once take possession of
the field. If thc English barber
would only have a decent shop and
proficient shaver, he,  I  should think, THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1907.
could charge twice as much. Twelve
cents is the most I have paid and
yesterday took the cake for cheapness. What do you think I paid for
a shave and hair-cut?—3d (6c)! But
it would have been dear for half the
money. If I had been a believer in
the efficacy of prayer, I would certainly have sent up my supplications
to be delivered from sudden death.
Now, let me see where I left off,
when I got on to the barber question. Oh I yes, the non-communicativeness and the reservedness of the
Englishman. Why, in a railway carriage each traveller might be a leper.
If one gets within two feet of one's
neighbour he looks agrieved, and as
for talking, that is out of the question,
the only exception being perhaps the
commercial man, and even he has
his own particular quarters in a
hotel so that you rub against him
very little. These particular quarters of his are looked upon as a "Holy
of Holies" as far as the ordinary
tourist or traveler is concerned, across
the portal of which one must not
go. Even the different parties of tourists do not appear to dine together, I
do not know how they manage it at
the country hotels, but they seem to
keep them separate. We walked out
yesterday to a quaint little fishing
village called Portleven, had lunch
there and got back in time for dinner.
It was a beautiful walk and I obtained a lot of information about
the fishing. There is a fine field for
Canadian Government Immigration
agents along this coast, i.e., as far as
B. C. is concerned. It appears the
steam trawlers have played havoc
with the ordinary fishermen who with
half a dozen others own their own
boat and nets. Good men with a
capital of $1,000 between them. Consequently they are being obliged to
quit and emigrate. Now these are
the class of men we want for our
B. C. fisheries in place of Japs.
Tomorrow we go to the Lizard and
after three or four days' round there,
proceed to Penzance.
I am glad to see the Trades Unions
are showing some signs of being
practical and turning their attention
to the righting of a state of affairs
that is one of the foulest blots on
our civilization, i.e., the payment of
female workers a living wage. It is
simply awful in this country. Not
one in a hundred of women employees
can live a decent life on her wages,
and though this is acknowledged, it
appears to create no surprise, and
no efforts are being made to right
such a fearful wrong. Of course I
do not allude so much to factory female operators as to shop girls and
the like. The former are looked after
by the Unions and Labour Organizations, while the latter are not. And
the worst of offenders as far as I
can learn in this respect amongst the
men who pose as philanthropists and
are active workers in the Church.
That man Whiteley who was shot, I
understand, was a glaring example.

I   The Drama. I
Sarah Truax.
The daily press of Victoria does not
seem to be enamoured of the representation of the "Spider's Web,"
by Sarah Truax and Company at the
Victoria Theatre last Wednesday
evening. After carefully reading
their criticisms I have come to the
■conclusion that they missed the
point, or their comment would have
been of a different character. With
that cold-blooded calculation whicli
is too much in evidence in dramatic
criticism nowadays, they affected to
regard the offering as a "problem"
play. This was to take the most
superficial and obvious meaning, but
the dramatic critic is expected to
look beneath the surface, and to discern those hidden beauties and pro-
founder truths which the genius of
the dramatist has buried in obscurity.
Viewed from the standpoint of morality and social conventionality, the
"Spider's Web" may be regarded as
morbid, uninstructive and ineffective,
but viewed as a contribution to the
psychological study of the sub-conscious, it is unique and convincing;
and after all people go to the theatre
to study and not for mere amusement.
There are several preceding incidents, but the whole of the play is
practically condensed into one Act,
the third. The stage represents the
bedroom of the heroine. She is seen
in an old four-poster rescued from
the Puritan Museum in Concord,
Mass. The posts are very much in
evidence, towering some nine feet
towards the ceiling, and are carefully
I painted with Aspinall's enamel.
As the curtain rises, the heroine is
: discovered   lying   in   bed,   her   head
! propped   up   on  three   pillows,   and
her limbs covered with a patchwork
crazy  quilt.    Her  face  has  lost  its
healthy glow under the subduing influence of a coat of white paint. Enter  the   aged  mother,  wringing  her
[hands and moaning "my daughter, my
I daughter," and then  flinging herself
1 down on a    very   easy   upholstered
I chair, in an attitude of despair.
Enter the family doctor, gray, kind-
I ly- and courteous. He explains to the
Igrief-stricken mother, and the won-
Idering audience that the heroine in
[falling to the stage when commemor-
[ating the discovery that her lover was
[her brother, had burst a blood vessel
I which had caused a clot to form at
lthe base of the brain. He further explained that while he regarded her
I condition as serious still the clot
[might be absorbed, in which case
I she would instantly recover, and the
I paralysis of her body would pass
laway. Meanwhile he stated as an interesting medical and psychological
Ifact that her mental faculties were
(unimpaired, and that she was pro-
Ibably conscious of everything which
Iwas conspiring. He dubbed this
|"sub-conscious" life.
Enter a hospital nurse with all the
Iparaphernalia of her profession, in-
Icluding cap, apron, thermometer, hot
land cold water, and sundry medicine
Ibottles. She dilates on the psychological problem, and tries to wake the
I sleeper, without avail.
Enter the mother's lover, an eld-
lerly roue who all through the play is
[chasing the heroine. He tries to wake
I her, in vain.
Enter the young lover; he implores
Iher on his knees to give him but a
•sign that she hears his undying pro-
Itestation. At this her left eyelid
[flickers; it is the first sign from the
[realms beyond. Exit young lover.
I Elderly roue discovers that the nurse
lis an old acquaintance who has ren-
Idered him important service, of a professional kind, twenty years before.
|The recognition is mutual; the nurse
[threatens to denounce him to the
Ifffmily; he tries to buy her off, wants
Iher to clear out so that he may con-
Itinue to chase the heroine without
Iimpediment. During their recrimin-
lations, several startling revelations
lare made, the first of which is that
the heroine's lover is not her brother,
but that the latter died when an infant, to the positive knowledge of
the nurse.
Naturally at this point the clot of
blood at the base of the heroine's
brain was absorbed; she blinked both
eyes, and by a deft movement of the
crazy quilt restored the glow to her
pallid cheeks. Then she waived her
arms, and with a gasp raised herself
in the bed. At this point the genius
of the actress became manifest. I
recall an occasion on the same stage
when one Griffiths, a Shakespearean
actor, represented Richard the Third
writhing in the centre of the stage
after he had had a bad dream. Miss
Truax not only writhed, but wriggled
in the same graceful manner from the
head of the New England four-poster
to the foot. Her eye was wild, in
fact both eyes tvere. Her hair
streamed, her fingers twitched, she
clutched the air, and finally landed
on the floor behind the elderly roue
with a blood curdling yell which
would have shamed a Sioux Indian.
Then she collapsed; every member
of the Company rushed on the stage;
she was carried to the aforesaid easy-
chair; the villain with hunched shoulders, bent head, and a gaze which
found its perspective six inches in advance of his toes, was conducted to
the door, and dismissed by the outstretched arm of the nurse, crooked
at the first finger.
As the curtain fell, the heroine was
reviving under the combined embrace
of the youthful lover in the vicinity
of the dissolved clot, and the aged
and erring, but repentent, mother in
the attitude of the Magdalen.
And yet the local critics were not
satisfied, and expressed wonder that
such a play should have been written,
or represented. Truly, tliere is no
satisfying some people.
the nerve and vim of that prince of lington and Helston, singers and
elderly lovers, Charles Matthews, and dancers, must be seen to be appre-
in Grand Opera, would be perfect ciated. Their style is different and

the music would hardly be attributed

The Royal Chef.
Mr. Harry H. Frazee, the producer
of more musical plays than any one
man, says: "I don't know why it is
that a star's work in musical comedy
is sometimes under-valued by those
not in the know, you know." Now
take the role of "Heinrich Lemphau-
ser" in the "Royal Chef"; it is really
a strong, legitimate character part
and needs as much careful preparation and as much artistic unity as
any role in straight comedy, and yet
some critics imagine that it is a
happy-go-lucky piece of carpentry in
which any sort of antics may be indulged. Nothing could be further removed from the facts. Mr. Wm. J.
McCarthy plays the character strictly
along legitimate lines and as rendered
by him could be transposed from
its musical setting into the compass
of fine comedy, without altering any
essential feature of the part. Not until this fact is fully realized, will the
musical comedy work of such artists
be appreciated at its true value. It
is undisputed that Mr. McCarthy's
portrayal of the role of the Chef," is
one of the finest characterizations
known. I want to go even further
and assert that it is one of the most
polished and finished pieces of character comedy to be seen anywhere."
Pantage's Theatre.
In criticising performances as a
usual thing the critic judges from a
standpoint individual to his own inclinations, and sometimes a situation
crops up which tends to alter opinions.
But judging from the way the acts
now at the Pantages Theatre were
heartily applauded everyone formed
the same opinion, and I doubt if any
audience were more of one way of
thinking  than  those  who  helped  to Banff's Most Popular $2 a Day Hotel.

On Monday evening last Manager
Ricketts put on one of the best shows
ever seen at the Victoria Theatre,
in every sense a star production. It
was an aggregation of clever people,
and, as always, cleverness scored.
Marie Cahill and Eugene Cowles
stood out head and shoulders above
the other members of the company.
The former acted and sang splendidly,
but her greatest success was achieved
in mimicry. With the single exception of Cissy Loftus I havc never
seen her superior in this line. She
is an artist to her finger tips, and as
long as she retains her marvellous
gifts, cannot fail to draw crowded
houses. Her little sketch of the departmental store girl at the ribbon
counter was inimitable, and well
worth the two dollars that the whole
show cost.
Eugene Cowles is in a class by
himself, his stage presence, his technique, his splendid voice nnd his
bounding spirits constitute him an
ideal Adonis Evergreen.    Hc has all

What They Fought For.
That Napoleon had a certain touch
of humour in his composition most
people know. When he was only a
young officer of artillery, a Prussian
officer, drawing himself up to his full
height exclaimed with much pride,
"My countrymen fight only for
glory"; then with a sneer he added,
"but   Frenchmen   fight   for   money."
A glance like fire shot from Napoleon's eyes. "You are right. They
each fight for what they are most in
need of."
A Boaster Snubbed.
A certain colonel of a cavalry regiment, who was rather renowned for
his boasting proclivities, was one day
complaining of the incompetence of
his officers at a party at which, among
the guests, was a witty duchess. "The
consequence is," he exclaimed at
length, "I have to be my own captain, my own lieutenant, my own
cornet "
"And you own trumpeter, too," said
the duchess, without a moment's hesitation.
A Queen's Size in Boots.
An Irishman who, during the life
of Queen Victoria, converted his
boots into coin of the realm for his
own purposes, was arrested for his
delinquency, and, when charged and
brought before his commanding officer, was aslied why he had been
guilty of such an offence.
"Well, sorr," replied the man, "I've
worn 'em for two years and I thought
they belonged to me."
"Nothing of the kind," answered
the officer, "those boots belong to
the Queen."
"Sure then I'm sorry, sorr, but I
didn't know Her Majesty took

This most popular of Victoria's hostelries presents all the
varied attractions and comforts that go to make up a complete
and modern resort hotel. Its proprietors have well studied the
desires of their patrons and have gradually added to the attractions
of the house until they feel that nothing now remains undone that
would tend to add to the pleasure and comfort of the guests.
The Poodle Dog cuisine has been universally
lauded by transient visitors from coast to coast.
