lleEsly slaughtered—many of them while
[si'ill too young to fly well—or driven from
Ithe proximity of [the settlements into the
I inaccessible moukituiu fastnesses where
lthe tender feet if the city-bred game
■ hog cannot' with Lomfort pursue them.
'Ibis sort of thifig has been a gradually
lincreasing nuisance for many years, and
lit is more limn tijno Unit it was put n
Istop to with a strong and harsh band.
■Along the line of tie E. & N. railway its
Ti.ew owners, th< C. P. R. Co., have
(inaugurated tho most stringent' measures
Ifor the protection if what they justly re-
Igard us one of thi most valuable assets
[of their new pun base; and tbe game-
|hog,'Whether with rod or gun, who tries
[breaking the law in tbat belt of territory will get a s'vere lesson. A long
■ experience throughout Canada has
[taught the C. V. R. the utter futility of
Ibeing either lenient! with or afraid of tlie
I people, and they nmy be trusted in this
[instance fo handle all law-breakers with
I that just severity wl»ich is the ouly thing
fthe people can understand or be controlled by. All true lovers of fair sport
I and fair play to man, bird and beast
' will back the big company's effort's to
I check the extermination of our game.
For that is what it will mean in n
very few years, unless the stringent
measures contemplated by the C. P. R.
nre adopted throughout the country. On
the Saanich peninsula, for example, there
i* apparently no check on out-of-season
shooting. On both the old and new
Cedar Hill roads, in particular, the
slaughter of gnme during the pnst few-
weeks has been something atrocious. In
fhe middle of July nnd the early part of
the present month coveys of grouse were
numerous throughout this district. Thc
"cung birds were growing strong, nnd
everything pointed to a good season. Today, nearly a week before the legitimate
commencement of the shooting, there is
scarcly a bird left. And the thing hns
' been done with a cynical openness which
speaks volumes for the coutempt of the
low entertained by our game hogs.
This slaughter is not the work of the
resident farmers. If they occasionally
diop a grouse or two to secure a little
fresh meat, that is all; and no one can
grudge them a mouthful of the birds
raised mi their own fields. No, it is the
oily "sport"'—horrible word!—who sneaks
out wilh dog und gun three weeks in
advance of the opening day, in order to
obtain by foul means the game he has
neither t'he pluck nor the skill to gain In
fair competition with his fellow men.
We believe there is a Fish and Game
Club of sorts knocking around Victoria
somewhere.   Does it ever do anything?
Those who are behind Ihe scenes, and
those—they nre not many—who can see
a thing when if is in front of their eyes,

is. Tough' luck, isn't it? But how
pietty to watch the care with which the
Dominion Liberal government studies
British Columbia politics!
The indefatigable John Oliver has another of his abortive "commissions of inquiry" ready to. worry the legislature
with next session. It Is announced thnt
he will ask for a commission to investigate all deals in lands on Kaien island,
including the sale of 10,000 acres to the
Grand Trunk Pacific Company. Why
does not Mr. Oliver go up to Kaien and
investigate for himself? It would not
cost nearly so much as his commission.
But then the member for the Delta does
not have to pay for the commission.
Our esteemed fellow-citizen, Senator
Templeman, has been hack n week, and
we have been waiting to hear hiin say
something that would explain the Grand
Trunk Pacific—all of it, because there is
a lot to explain.   In another column of
Wanted, A Stock Exchange.
Victoria is Without One of the Most Important of All Financial
Victoria ought to have a stock exchange. Some yenrs ago an effort was
made to establish nn institution of the
sort, but the effort wns not successful.
Since then residents and visitors who
deal in scrip and stocks have to buy and
sell privately or ■ through real estate
agents without the advantage of knowing what is the real market value of the
property dealt in. This is a serious
matter, because, as the capital of a mining country, Victoria should have proper facilities for investors and speculators. In fact it would be found that the
establishment of a stock exchange here
would encourage investment in British
Columbia securities and properties, because inquirers would be able to get
proper quotations, and to buy and sell
IyK'-IItHvi      '°
tries, and. to tell you the truth, I am
surprised that the matter has not been
taken up, nnd the exchange established
long before this. However, T^ie Week
should be able to achieve some results if
it presents some of the facts of the case
before the public."
The advantages to be derived from the''
establishment of an exchange here nre
many and of nuich importance. In the
first place, it would mnke Victoria a
complete financial centre. The city is
well equipped with banks, land and mortgage companies and the like, nnd an exchange is the one institution lncking. Its
establishment would add to the importance of the city as a financial centre,
would improve the local financial conditions, and would stimulate investment in
mining, lumbering and other undertakings. One of the chief reasons thnt our
industries are slowly developed is thnt
there is so little local investment, and
too much dependence on outside capitalists. We be..evc thnt the establishment
of an exchange would do much to remedy
this state of affairs.

In conversation with several prominent
business men in Victorin, n representative of The Week learned! thnt n proposition for the establishment of n stuck ex-

the proposition wns to be tnken up by
men of the rinlit stamp, success would

considerable investor in Mount Sicker

this: Tliere is no renl locnl market for

Alberni election, hus caused quite u Butter of excitement in the Liberul dovecots.
The Times says that "the whole matter
grew out of the activity of members.ol

infers that these gentlemen procured thc
arrest of Nilsou, or persuaded him to impersonate is not quite clear. As the guilt

lays the blame for the existing state of

This seems hardly fuir, for those .who
have had experience of the courageous

India to cope with this fell disease, ure
aware that the fault lies with invariable
dislike Of the natives for the ordinary
laws of sanitation. Still, the devastation
wrougnl by the plague contiuues to increase. In 1901 there were 275,000
deaths; in 1902, 580,000; iu 1903, 850,-

1,020,000. For the urst four months of
tbis year the deaths huve reached the
total of 090,000. Meanwhile we hear
that Lord Curzon, the viceroy, and Lord
Kitcuener, the commander-in-chief, have
agreed to disagree on matters of military
administration and Lord Curzon hus resigned. Lord Minto, it is said, will succeed to the viceroyalty. But it is doubtful if trouble among the leadiug officials
can disturb the administration of the
laws of sanitation, aud the plague remains a problem.

There once lived a girl who was a
,8'reat theorist. She had theories on
housekeeping, diet, education, dress aud
love; which she took great delight in expounding to her family aud friends.
Now, it so happened thnt, during a
sojourn in a distant city, she met a very
nice young man who became enamored
of her and whose affection she wus iu^
clined to return. But as she bad a pet
' eory concerning ' engagements, she
withheld a definite answer to his entreaties that she become his wife, and
"Although 1 love you,    1 cannot   answer you in tbe uilirniative until your
affection for me hus undergone u test.
From what you have told me of yourself,, you hare associated but little with
girls.   How, then, cuu you be sure that
your love for me will endure?    There-
ore leave me for oue   month,    during
pvhich time no communication shall pass
between us; associate with other girls as
ouch as possible, aud if at the end of
Ihat time your heart is still true to me 1
Ihail become yours lor all time."
I. The young mau protested and pleaded
[with all the arbor of love, but the theorist remained firm iu her decision.   Finnlly the lover bade her a reluctant adieu,
lind was off to keep the compact.
J The weeks went by aud the eud of the
uonth came.   The theorist, who by this
Lime, it must be confessed, had become
(exceedingly lonesome for the nice young
■man, attired herself in her most becoming frock and awaited with    fluttering
(heart his coming.
A bounding step was heard on the
Iporch. The theorist sprang to the door.
\K messenger boy handed her a telegram.
It read:
"lest successful. Am engaged. Girl
|said yes at once.   Has no theories."

In order to encourage the white
ingmnn by showing him that we
too proud to do the sume as he dies, w
sometimes have our washing done by a
Chinaman, Last Saturday, our laundry
hnving arrived, we proceeded to inwrnp
the frugnl bundle, if perchance wc might
find a boiled shirt in sufficiently good repair to wear to church on the ensuing
Sabbath. The bundle wus wrapped in
nn old newspaper, on which word drawn
with a brush certain hieroglyphics in
India ink, used by the wasbee-man for
purposes of identification, and briefly,
but graphically descriptive—so we hnve
been told by those learned in Chinese
handwriting—of Ihe mure prominent nnd
less pleasing features of utir physical appearance. But it wus not Ibis that attracted our attention—lots of people call
us much worse names than the Chinese
do. No, it was a paragraph in big bold
blnck letters, which run right across the
seven-column sheet of the newspaper.
And this is how ihut exceedingly prominent paragraph read:
"Vote for the candidates of tha Liberal
party and secure the immediate construction ol a new transcontinental railway, together with branches, the establishment of steamship lines and tlle inauguration of grent works which will i
cause a transformation on tho face of
the province."
Amazed, we lifted our eyes to the head
of tne page, to see what we hud got
hold of. And, behold I The dale was
Monday, October 24th, 1!>U4, and the
name of the paper was the Victoria
Daily Times! O, lenipura, O, mores, as
the ancient Roman used to say. Which
may be translated into modern English
as "Oh, Templeiniin; ob, Morse!"
pie of British Columbia some ten months
ago, which snid promises were conditional upon the said people returning
Liberals in the then approaching Dominion election.
The people harkeued to the promises
of Senator Templeman, and being—as
.ne people always are—unwise, they returned seven Liberals to the Dominion
House, being one for ench constituency
iu British Columbia.
In the flush of their greet victory,,
these gentlemen were called the "Solid
Seven." They went dowu to Ottawa
from this wild and woolly West, prepared—so they said—to carry all before
ll.em. But Sir Wilfrid Laurier understands that kind of animal. Very soon
he had those wild and woolly members
sj tame that t'hey are now called tbe
"Sordid Seven."
In the meantime, the people of British
Columbia, having curried out Senator
Tern pieman's requests, waited for that
gentleman to deliver the goods. But! he
dia not do so. And he continues not to
dj so.   And The Week wants to know:
1. Where is the Grand Trunk Pacific
2. Has it commenced construction—
immediate construction—as promised by
Senator Templeman and his paper?
8. If uot,1 why not?
4. Why did Senator Templeman promise the people of this province that, if
t'eey supported Sir Wilfrid Laurier, immediate construction should commence
on fhe Grand Trunk Pacific in British
Columbia—and then break his word?
5. Why did Senator Templeman drag
a Cabinet Minister—and a Frenchman at
that—all the way from Ottawa to thi*
province, aud make him stand on the
platform and promise the same thing?
li. And why did the Frenchman lie?
7. And who paid his travelling ex-
perses? ,
8. Why, wheu it became evident that
l lie Grand Trunk was uot going to commence construction immediately in British Columbia, did not fhe Senator protest at Ottawa?
9. Or else resign?
10. And why did the Sordid Seven not
11. Or else resign? •
12. And what was Morse doing out
here in the spring, trying to hold up the
provincial government for a bonus and
laud grant for the Grand Trunk, when
wc had Senator Templeman's own assurance that nothing of the kind would be
13. And why did Senator Templeman's
paper back up Mr. Morse in his attempt
to rob tho province?
14. And why the Senator, according to
Lis paper, was willing to give away large
sums of British Columbia money, and
huge grants of British Columbia land, to
a corporation who had already been sufficiently highly paid by Sir Wilfrid
15. And w hat do Senator Templeman's
public utterances mean anyway?
16. And what is his pledged word as a
public man worth?

Every year a goodly portion of the
natural wealth of British Columbia goes
up in smoke. Private property is also
destroyed aud although there is periodical grumbling at the existing state of
things, no radical change is made with
a view to preventing the recurrence of
these disasters. It is safe to say that
dvring the last fen years over one million dollars' worth of property has been
destroyed every year by forest fires,
apart from the state owned timber.—

The Ottawa Free Press recently remarked that "had Mr. Macdougal's later
relations with the ministry been less
aggressive in tone, and more friendly in
character ho would have fared better
when the end came." This is an unfortunate admission, meaning simply that

geceral's criticisms, got even by giving
a smaller superannuation allowance than
the; would otherwise have given. The
mora) Is plain.—Grand Forks Gazette.

A certain clergymun mice delivered a
sermon during which lie remarked: "I
know commentators do not agree with
me on this point." A few days afterwards he was astonished to see a man
deliver a large sack at bis bouse. Attached to the mouth of the sack was a
letter from an old woman living in the
parish which ran thus: "Dear Sir,—I
hopes you'll excuse the liberty, but I
heard you say on Sunday as 'ow common taters disagreed with you, so I am
sendin' you a sack of my home grown
kidneys, which I 'opes you'll find to your

A smart man undertook one day the

"Do you believe in the story of the fatted

female," said the divine. "How do you
know that?" "Because," said the other,
quietly looking at his interrogator, "I
see the male is alive uow."—The Tatler.
Something definite has been arrived at

The Art Critic nodded.
"Just so. His only child, n Ind of
twenty, came to grief on a tiger shoot
near Hydernpore, some months ago.
"The boy, who inherited his father's
genius and wanted to set up a studio of
his own, was despatched by his parents
io do a little globe-trotting and shoot
big game; but tigers are Vandals concerning Art."
"And he has a mother?" said tbe
"Yes. I went to Melbury road aud
saw her to-day ,the phantom of her former helf, but a beautiful woman for all
that. Devenish elected that she should
give us tea iu the studio. It is hung
round with pictures pf their boy . . .
and he whispered that it was the lirst
time she had entered the room . . .
since ... I can tell you I did not
relish that tea. Mrs. Deverish retired to
a lounge, and fixed a gaze of fascinated
horror on the tiger skin hearth rug; she
was despair embodied in her gorgeous
draperies. Of a truth, Devenish's method is startling. In answer to my question, lie assured me tliat he was now
quite idle, absolutely devoid of any inspiration, which is essential to his painting. Hey, presto! When I was goin^
he followed me to the door and informed me that au inspirit in bin! come

The Journalist's eyes regarded Pall
Mall, as a panorama, from the club window.
"I pity that man's wife," he said.
In tlie .Melbury road studio Paul Devenish was hard at work. Ho had ar-
I ranged a scene of wintry magnificence,
with unerring skill, his wife posing iu
the foreground. The chill sunshine
threw out generously the tawny effects
of soft furs, great "Edwin Molyneux"
chrysanthemums, and the folds of the
woman's velvet gown. She leaned slightly
forward, a superb tiger-skin nt her feet,
one shoe-point resting ou the cruel
striped hend; it was her boy's first
trophy, sent homo with a bombastic let-
, ter. . . and had been amply avenged
She hnd sat thus for several hours
during each day, motionless save for
Ihe tumultuous throbbing of the heart,
whose agony was intensified by environment, and depicted iu ber face. She
was tortured by the smiling picture of
her son in boating flannels confronting
her from the wall, by the snarling lips
and powerful claws of the dead Thing
beneath her foot . . . and by every
concise word that fell from her husband!
That he had peremptorily requested
her to sit to him was accepted as n mntter of course. Had he not married her
for tbe dedication of her face to Art?
. . . Hut she noticed, with a resentment dull as it was futile, that he exerted his ingenuity to make ber heart-
wound bleed afresh. Hitherto she bad
passionately refused to learn the details
of Laddie's misadventure, and Devenish
had acquiesced in shielding her so far
with a tolerant recognition of her weakness. Hut to-dny, is he furiously painted, he did not spare her . . . and lier

"Jove! it was grim. Tliere were three
fellows there, and they could do nothing!" . . . Silent, she cowered down
aiming the sables nbout her, while his

face to tlie canvas, nnd his slow, eul-
ihired speech continued. "I.nddie wns

Beneath the cunning brush of her husband she law her Tragedy grow. She

loved to reproduce, but her own features
repulsed her now.

of his face protruding at that angle, and

"Devenish has giveu me a treat today," remarked the Art Critic. He
stretched out a lazy hand for his loug
tumbler,  and sipped appreciatively.
"1 huve been favored with a private
peep al his latest masterpiece, and it will
give me sincere pleasure to write him
"Did you see his wife?" the Journalist asked.
"Not in the flesh, but ou canvas. She
is invariably bis model, uud this time he
hus surpassed himself. But it is uwful!"
The Art Critic shuddered eujoyably.
"He has painted her as Despair, looking very much as I saw her that day in
the studio 1 told you of; but he has accentuated, of course, lu her surroundings there is a subtle suggestion of luxury, done in sephia uud amber, aud his
moaning is wholly conveyed in her face!
It points out how useless nre the pomps
and vanities to ease a broken heart, you
understand . . . Paul Devenish's conception of ijespair will live!"
The Journalist's teeth damaged his
"By the way, I ventured lo speak out
an idea that occurred to me. . . the
triumph of beauty that would have been
achieved by tbat face aud form if enhanced solely by the halo of happiness,
and paiutei. thus!—bereft of misery and
magnificence, with a background of field
(lowers, perhaps, and joy mediating
every feature. He grasped my meaning, though crudely put , . . and I
left him digesting the notion!"
Worn out in mind nnd body, the
painter's wife posed for the companion
picture to Despair. She had poised for
many days, while her husband worked
in a race with Time, for the two pictures were to be on view together, and
should already have beeu sent for the
verJict. of the Powers at Burlington
Mrs. Devenish, in her loose white robe,
looked down on her hands filled with
fragrant sprays of may, and n smile of
intense bitterness curled;her;lips, The
griii'i'l'nl form and simple hedge-blossoms
had been faithfully transmitted to canvas, but the face wus still a mere outline having been loft lo tlle! last. In
her features did the painter expect to
find his conception of "Happiness" materialized? She knew what, the world
suspected not of its favorite, that Paul
Deverish utterly lacked Imagination; he
could paint . . . what he saw! And
so she smiled.
"An hour more nf light!" remarked
Devenish. He flung down, his brush
with u gesture of exhaustion, and his
glance wandered uncertainly to bis wife.
He moved to- ber side. "Listen! The
light is going, but I must tell you . . '.
nre you brave enough to bear good
news?" ,,_
His tone wns tender to her unaccustomed ears.
"There can be no good news now that
there is no Laddie!"
His nervous fingers closed upon hers.
"What if it concerns Lnddie? Hush!
Be calm, and I shall tell you all. There
is a chance—nay, a certainty that Laddie is living!"

"The fact is strauger than a fairy tnle.
I have cabled to the right quarters for
particulars, but there is no doubt in my
mind. Yiti know Vereker, the Art
Critic, has a brother holding u civil appointment in Surnbad? He wrote home
fragments of a story, with which my
friend came to me to-day, the story concerning our boy."
He paused, but she mutely signalled to
him to go on.
' It seems that a band of Daccsts, making their way through the jungle, came
upon an English lad senseless beside the
dead body of a tiger. When he recov
er;d consciousness, they found that shock
ha< c'tprived him of his senses; he could
give no account of himself, and knew not
even his own name, though perfectly
docile to deal with. He was otherwise
uninjured, save for a badly scarred
shoulder. For reasons best known to
themselves, the little band did not return to the haunts of white men and report their discovery, but they brought the
lad along with them. They ultimately
drifted to Surabad, where they got into
trouble, and the brother of the Art Critic
was instrumental in arresting tbe ringleader. This man told him of tbe Sahib
iu their care . .• . and the boy was
brought to Vereker's bouse, where he is
under a doctor's eye   ..."
She was weeping silently, faint with
the flood of overwhelming happiness engulfing her. He had not told her all,
but he must huve good proof that this
was indeed their sou. She asked herself, as she wept, how she had lived
without Laddie! But she must have
known, must have been vaguely conscious, that it was quite impossible ho
should have beeu taken from her for
ever. It seemed to her that she had
awaited this day.
"My theory is that the tiger had been
mortally wounded, after all, by one of
the shots fired, and so, nfter a short run,
dropped dead beside his victim. Vereker's brother wrote home tbe story us
a strange experience.
"You will think that the people in
Hyderapore should have let us know immediately, but it is not odd thut no hint
reached them. You see, no one could
know that the boy came from there, tbe
Dacoits persistently concealing their previous whereabouts, his identity could
not be gathered from any murk upon

nsked his name, he answered 'Laddie,'

tient will mnke a complete recovery!"

with an unspoken thanksgiving, and the
man noticed that the last few minutes

The following purticulurs, snys tbe

regarding the sad drowning of Miss
Ruckles and Miss Auderson ut English
point, Christina bike, last week. It
seems that u party, consisting of Mrs.
Wolverton and her little daughter Marjorie, Miss Agues Ruckles and Miss Ida
Anderson, who were escorted by Andrew
\i iiey, foreman at the Cascade power
house, started from Cascade nbout 5
o'clock ou Monday morning und proceeded to Christina lake, where they procured

L'ompnnicd by little Marjorie Wolverton,

Marjorie staying on the shore while the
grownup girls went into deep water.
Miss Anderson, who wus in tho wuter
lirst, got into deep water and sank, not
being able to swim. Miss Ruckles, who
wns nn athletic girl and good swimmer,
ut once got a pole and reached il to ber
drowning companion, but it wus (oo
short. As n lnst resource, Miss Ruckles,
M utter desperation, plunged into the
deep water after the drowning girl, but
tne moment she reached her she was
grasped in a deathlike grip by Miss Anderson, who wns u powerful girl, and held
her friend firmly until both were drowned. Little Marjorie. in the meantime
gnve the alarm, when help arrived and
the bodies of the unfortunate girls in
death's embrace were recovered nnd
tnken lo Cascade. Miss Anderson resided nenr Minneapolis, Minn. At tbe

arranged to take place in two weeks'

Sir:—In n letter • to . the . Times of
the 21st inst., bended "Water, Light
and Power," signed "Municipal Ownership," which undoubtedly was inspired,
it is stated that Mr. Lubbe exposed and
defeated n scheme "to hand over to Mr.
Barnard's company (meaning thc tramway compiiny). a monopoly of the power
and lighting interests just us it wus on
the eve uf being curried' out."
Thu context of the letter shows that
the scheme referred to is that contained
in the agreement between tbe city aud
the tramway cunipany. Considering tbat
this agreement has uo effect and could
not be carried out uutil sanctioned by the
ratepayers, it is difficult tu see upon what
grounds Mr. Lubbe buses1 his claim to
gratitude. The letter goes on lo stule
thut tbe citizens ure indebted to Mr.
Lubbe for his steady opposition to the
agreement. Let us see how much gratitude is coming to Mr. Lubbe. uud how
much he is opposed' to the tramway com-.
puny having a monopoly.
me} Mr. Lubee was certainly not opposed
to the tramway company hnviug u monopoly when be made the original agreement between the waterworks compauy
ami the tramway company, for, irrespective of the question whether the tramway
company have the exclusive right to the
water for power purposes to-day, he certainly gave it to them by that original
agreement, which contains a clause practically identical with the tramway company.
So tuat if the tramway company has a
monopoly of the Goldstream wuter to-duy
(and by the tenor of their solicitor's letter to the council last night, it seems
that they think they have) the citizens
can thank Mr. Lubbe and his compauy
for giving it to them. Moreover, if thut
monopoly clause had not beeu. iu Mr.
Lubbe's contract with them, it would
never have beeu iu the city's agreement.
1 do noi' nsk that my word should be
tnken for this last statement, but will
leave it to any single member of the
council of 1904 to say' whether Hint
monopoly clause (a copy of the one already sigued by Mr. Lubbe) was not resisted for weeks by the aldeirmen and
only inserted because uo better bnrgain
could be made, and ns the whole agreement was optional ou the part of the
city, but binding on tbe tramway company, it was deemed advisable to take the
best terms obtainable for reveuue producing purposes, and' submit them to the
Let us then give Mr, Lubbe all the
thanks that are coming to him for having
in the first place put the tramway company in a position to claim a monopoly
in respect to the Goldstream water for
power purposes. If Mr. "Municipal
Ownership" should bold forth again, as
he soys he may do, let himi be a man and
write under his own name. I may further enlighten him should he do so, and
should his further effusions be worth replying to; so far they have been only
^misleading and evidently for a purpose
which is only too transparent.

A very pretty wedding took place at
the Reformed Episcopal church by the
Bight Rev. Bishop Cridge, assisted by
Rev. O. B. Russell last Wednesday,
wien Jessica, eldest daughter of the late
Joseph Colquhoun was united in mar-
rlpge to Mr. Richard Peake, son of
Richard Penke, "Oak Grove," Chepstow, England, and grandson of thelafe
Thomas Peake, sergeant at law, Perth-
.'ng, County Denbigh. The bride, who
was given away by Mr. E. A. Paul, M.
A., looked charming In a beautiful gown
of ivory silk trimmed with beautiful old
lace. The bridesmaid, Miss Josephine
Oolquhoiin. sister of the bride, wore n
very pretty gown of pink crepe-de-chlne
trimmed wit'h ecru lace, a black lace
picture hat trimmed with pink roses,
finished off this dainty costume, Miss
■Tessle Paul acted as flower girl, wearing
a dainty gown of white china silk wearing a wTeath of pink roses in her hair
carrying a rfiower bouquet of pink roses,
The church was most artistically decorated for the occasion by Mrs. and Miss
Denis Harris, Mrs. and Miss McTavish,
the Misses Lugrin, Miss Willeston, Mr.
Russell and other friends of the bride.
Mr. A. Colquhoun acted as groomsman,
while Major Hibben and Mr, Dickenson
r.cted as ushers. As fhe bridal party
entered the   church   Mr. Giles played
Lohengrin's wedding march, after which
the choir sang "The Voice That
Breathed O'er Eden," Later Mrs. Hinton
sang "Beloved, it Is Morn." A reception was held at the residence of the
bride's mother, 38 Simcoe street, from
9 to 11, after which the happy couple
left by the Charmer for Vancouver, returning on Thursday to take the direct
steamer to San Francisco. After a few
weeks Mr. ..ind Mrs. Peake will return
io tbe mainland of British Columbia,
and eventually to England to visit Mr.
I'eake's family. The groom's present to
the bride was a very handsome chain
bracelet, and to the bridesmaids gold
Mrs. John Irving was hostess at a
most enjoyable dance ou Thursday evening, which was given as a farewell to
Mrs. Bromley, who leaves next Saturday
for England. The house, which is au
ideal house for a dance, was most artistically decorated. The supper room
was done entirely with pink sweet peas
and asparagus fern, while in the drawing room and hall were quantities of La
France roses. The numerous young people present all voted it as quite the
jolliest dunce of the season, the floor aud
music were perfect, and everything combined to make the dance a success.
Mrs. Irving was becomingly gowned in
black, while Mrs. Auderson (Winnipeg),
a guest of Mrs. Irving, wore a dainty
gown of white satin with pink paune
velvet trimming.
Miss Irving looked very sweet in black,
while Miss Genene Irving wore a very
sweet gown of pink silk organdie.

Some Remarks Concerning the Now Popular Sport in Victoria-
Things in the Stores.
By "Babette "
Dear Madge:—Now is the seasou for
salmon trolling, and on the waters from
Oak Bay to the outer wharf are to be
seen boats, whose occupants are bent on
spooning the wily spring   salmon.   But
to "spoon" properly, the youuger
generution will tell you, is to arise ut 4
a.m., just wheu . "night's cnudles are
burnt out, and jocund day stands tiptoe
on the misty mouutaiu top." Of course
having arranged beforehand to meet your
fiancee, or some other young person
whom you like very much. Then, at
this bewitching hour of dawn euter your
little craft aud glide awny witb her over
the water while your line bangs out behind. Oh, the energy of youth. At other
times young married couples are to be
seen being tossed about on the billows
in hopes of a "catch." And sometimes,
so 1 have heard, Madge, they are tossed
too far away aud uave beeu obliged to
remain on a deserted isluud all night,
till the tide turns with the duwu.
Of late 1 have been motoriug, aud one
of the delights of motoring undoubtedly
is its unexpectedness. Oue finds the
way into such beautiful bits of country
with splendid roads and by quaint farm
houses and cottages. Of course vicissitudes heap themselves upou one also, aud
on my late autouiobiling adventure, interest in wayside eveuts wus kept up
by the occasional slaughter of a stray
hen or two. However, we had a most
delightful spin out to Saanich, and ull
along the lovely Inlet road. Tulkiug of
motors, tbe farmers, whose cherished
and particulur prerogative is grumbling,
ure already looking ou the automobile as
a deadly und desolntiug enemy, becuuse
it does uot consume their wheat or hay,
which they speud hull their lives in
growing "Where will be tbe deuiund
for fodder," they angrily ask, "when
horses disappear?" Aud Echo ouly un-
swers with her usual elusive, "Where?"
For summer motor-journeys, waterproofed silk and tussore, ure the accepted
aud superior materials, being cool and
warm at the same time, dust uud rainproof, smart aud serviceuble. The
uew motor-huts become increasingly
smart; pale-colored suede iu blue, pink
andl creamy toues is mude up iu vurious
flut shupes, while the motor fringe warranted not to get out of curl or blow
away with the wiud, no mutter the puce,
is auother valued accessory. Of the
latest novelties in dress, 1 must first tell
you of a petticoat which has latterly enslaved my affections. It is of flowered
pompadour silk, the ground being1 of tbat
coffee-with-cream color which deserves
the commendutiou of the temperance reformers, Beeing that it has usurped tbe
place in our affections formerly accorded
to champagne, the design beiug executed
in pink, lt possesses a Uouuce with the
most pronounced tendencies, lavishly
adorned with taffeta rucheiugs of tbe
predominating line. These applied iu the
shape of lyres minus the strings nre distinctly quaint, a harp-shaped motif of
ivory lace being introduced into the centre of each. Is it not un original uotion?
My mind misgives ine, nevertheless, that
were such designs to become generally
populur, some sentimental dressmaker
would introduce iu au expansive moment
the heart-shaped motif and lay some
guileless client open to the charge not
only of wearing her's upuu her sleeve.
but upon her petticoat.
In the white dresses, richness of embroidery and guipure, Incrustations vied
with the cobweb fineness of the laces
employed, us often as not, iu the already
highly ornamental gown. We have borrowed much from the fashions of past
ages, Madge, und must admit tbat in the
matter of splendour of embroidery nnd
richness of material our ancestresses
could make as fine a show, or, perchance,
better than ourselves. Indeed, mnny of
the best embroideries of our day are but
revivals of those done mauy long years
ago, But in the mutter of tbe white
chiffon, union, batiste and lace gowns
of the moment we triumph. Never, I
think, in the pnst could there have been
anything to opproach the up-to-date confections in that line. There is scarcely a
square inch of the nauvo-muteriul left
free from fine tucking, open stick, lace
applique, insertion or embroidery. No
dressmaker thinks of confining herself to
one make of lace in trimming a smart
white dress. Large medallions of thick
raised Irish guipure may be edged with
narrow frills of the immensely popular
Valenciennes lace, and the vest may be
of light tambour lace, or of the silk ur
uionde luce, which bus agaiu become the
fashion. An endless variety of uew designs in lace have made their uppeur-
auce, cleverly combining the characters
uf old makes, insomuch thnt even experts
in lace have given up the attempt lo
christen all the lace novelties of the year,
so I am told, Madge.
For evening wear, pule blue nnd many
new and lovely shades of pink huve
been most iu demand, ln the pinks the
changes have beeu ruug on every tone—
from the delicate blush of the wild rose
to the full flush of thc dumask rose. The
particular charms of a grey tulle frock
that I noticed at a recent dance, cou-
lirnied me iu my theory that grey is au
admirable dancing color. This frock
covered an under dress of very soft grey
satin. The over-skirt had ten or a dozen
rows of net quillings run ou, giviug il
almost the Hare of a uaiiet skirt at the
bottom. Tiny wreaths of embroidered
foliuge, tied up with mauve ribbon knots,
shot with silver, formed a dainty festoon
somewhere about the knees. The de-
colleluge was flounced several rows deep
with tine-pleated gauze frills edged with
cream lace. There wus a deep belt
shading from mauve to silver, the back of
it curried right up iu a poiui behiud and
trimmed with little silver bows, the ends
of which were fringed1—u new departure.
iNothiug in the frock, ull toid you will
say, but therein consists the supreme
"chic'' of the nioiueut. i could not avoid
making uiso how dainty were the grey
sutiu slippers thnt peeped uuder it,
udorued witb amethysts buckles, set
gipsy fashion to avoid the inevitable de-
predutious occasioned by slaw-set ornaments. The stockiugs i susptct ot beiug
grey, with a spriukliug of mauve em-
Droidery amongst ihe silken uieches.
Aud now for the grape jelly thut 1
promised) to tell you how to make. To
obluiu the best results iu making grape
jelly, iladge, the fruit should be full-
sized, but rather under-ripe, us the fully
ripened grapes ure loo sweet to "jell"
satisfactorily. Use the best granulated
sugar, aud above all do not attempt to
make grape jelly ou a cloudy or rainy
day. disregard of ibis last hiut will be
likely to produce grape molasses iu the
place of firm, crisp jelly. Crush your
fruit aud scald it slightly—just enough
to strain. Rub it through a sieve, and
then allow it to drip through three thicknesses of cheesecloth. Do uot squeeze
the bug while it is dripping, or it will
oe cloudy and thick iu apearance. To
ei Ji. pint of juice add one pint—or
tivuud of sugur. Boil it bard for twenty
minutes, then drop a spoonful into a
saucer und set it on the ice to cool. If
it "sets" after a moment or two, it is
done. Fill the jelly glusses and set aside
to cool. Cover the glasses tbe next day.
This is a most successful receipt for
grape jeiiy, aud if you follow out the instructions implicitly I am sure you will
find it excellent. Talking of grapes reminds me of the Ontario grape juice,
made from the pure puice of concord
grapes, uud a most delightful beverage
sold at Terry & lUarrett's. I have reason to praise this, having lately purchased a bottle, nud I find it a most refreshing drink for this time of the year.
While in the same store I invested in
some Mitcliam lavender bath powder,
und 1 must saw it undoubtedly is perfection.
For the "wee one's" go-cart 1 should
certainly advise you to go to Weiler
Bros. They have a splendid selection to
choose from. Their Whitney go-carts, I
think the peer of nil. They are easy running, und so artistically and daintily designed, nnd of course we always like to
see our little ones well "turned out," so
to speak. These "go-carts" cost no
more thnn the ordinary kind, yet they
represent the perfection attained by 50
years of continuous construction of
vehicles for the litle folks. Besides,
Weilcr's have n grand assortment of
folding carts and cosy carriages for the
very tiny tots, in all styles. Therefore
you cannot do better than go and investigate their new stock in this line.
As I write, Madge, 1 hear In the dis
tance the sweet noise of my musical
neighbor, und guess what she is singing?
Nothing less than the pretty new ballad
called, "Buck Among the Clover and the
Bees." 1 urn almost tempted to drop my
pen and listen, as 1 did my needle yesterday afternoon, lt is an exceedingly
pretty song, and my neighbor tells me it
is the latest novelty in sheet music sold
at Fletcher Bros., and that a handsome
picture depicting a dear old rural sceue
is given away to the purchaser of each
copy. But I ussure you, Mudge, that 1
need no such inducement to make iue
the huppy possessor of this delightful
bit uf music, and us suou as I finish this
epistle 1 shall betake myself off to the
music store iu question, and obtain my
heart's desire. 1 am sure yuu would do
the same, did you but once hear "Back
Among the Clover aud the Bees.'
Kootenay Notes
Nelson, Aug. 22.
The Nelson fuir is the next thing upon
the programme iu the Kootenay und
efforts are being made to ensure, its success. While the city of Nelson hus nut
as yet gone so far as to take over the
whole of the enterprise, the municipality
feeling it to be its duty lirst lo bring tbe
niuuicipul power plant tu u successfful
issue, yet the project is by uo means
turned down, lt is simply luid aside for
the lime being, and yet the council is
about to build a large grand stand to
accommodate 1,501) people on the fair
grouuds. It is expected that even this
seating capacity will be inadequate. Resided having the usual industrial attractions the fair committee ure spending
much money in bringing here show attractions which will draw the crowd.

matter by making a reduction of Uo per,

return. Excursiuus are being got up und
Neison will be busy during the third;
week of September.
The local cricket club is arranging for
a game with a newly formed team iu
Rossland and a challenge bus beeu received from Okanngan tu play against
the Kootenay club here during fair week.
This will probably be accepted aud a
good game should result. Cricket is
catching on here more than any other
game, principally because ef its freedom from professionalism and general
graft. The rowing club here is getting
up a regatta for the first Monday iu
September. Tlie lake is seldom rough
and as the city rises above the lake, the
course can be easily watched from the
Forest fires have been bothering the
good people of the Kootenay considerably of late, but a lucky downpour of
rain a few days ago has fairly broken
up the haze of smoke here aud there, indicating that the mischief is scotched
nnd not killed, Much damage has been
caused to the government roads and as
much will have to be spent upou their
repair as would maintain a force of fire
wardens. What is really wanted is that
tome government officials should have
the power to act whenever it is necessary and to employ labor. And these
men with the power must be on the spot;
uud uot at some distance away. While
authority is being gained, the lire too
.iften gets beyond control uud uot only

Lust Monday a fire broke out near Aibs-
worth which threatened' the town, and
Ferule hnd a somewhat similar experience.
As hinted lnst week, tbe Le Roi concentrator hns acknowledged "the com,"
ibe management say tbat it will be closed
down pending the replacing of certain
machinery. This, however, need uot be
taken to mean that there is anything
really serious the matter. The method
of extracting the mineral values from,
Rossland siliceous rock bus already been
demonstrated and in n lunger or shorter
Interval, depending chiefly upon the capability of those directing operations, concentrating will be a far larger element
in Rossland mining thnn it is ut present.
The Granby smelter bus increased to
eight instead of six furnaces, and generally speaking the mining world is in improving circumstances.

Coulter was bringing ah action it's u.ratepayer against the city for. salary, and
against Mayor Houston to prevent him
doing certain' arbitrary acts.    That action was nonsuited'on the-ground thnt
Coulter  was  not  a  ratepayer.    .Hence
the whole thing would have i had' to be
goue over again with, which 'Would: brob-
ably have meant,  unless the pleadings
could hnve been brought to an issue dur't
ing the lcgirV Vacation, which souwhow
the legal 1'riiternity. fight shy of j' that the
case could uot have: been tried until the
December sittings.    That is to siy,' uo(
until within a few -weeks ot the inuni^
cipal elections.   .Delay, of course^.ptennt
victory for Houstou.    But Houston did
uot turn up iu time, for th„e..j>e,xj;. eity
council meeting,  which was not for A
fortnight after his departure, or there*
ubouts.   So the council reinstated Coulj
ter promptly, and further appointed the
chief   of   Houston's   opponents acting
mayor,   Nobody knew where the mayor
was except the .Tribune, Which lugubrif
ously hinted that Mayor Houston would
cease to serve the city.'   Acting mayor
and council proceeded to have auother
meeting und to vote Coulter bis salary
during tbe whole time of his suspension,
dating back from the beginning of May.
The next move in the gume is- Coulter's
resignation,   for   whom is obtained another job.   It is accepted aud au ex-fireman appointed to the position on the recommendation of the fire chief.    When
Jobu returns he will find that Coulter
has got his pay and has resigned after
about a week's service.    It. is possible
that there  will .be an  eruption  pf Jhe
volcanic Tribune' and pet. names (carefully avoiding those which were snid lo
be libellous by the courts) will be showered impartially.   But the ebullition will
be harmless   and    the  .mayor.,';who is
stated by the Nelson News to be'having
a good time in San Francisco with Big
Bill Galliher, will find that be has defeated himself by his own absence.   ';>
Really the hot weather here has had
an alleviation in the way of' municipal
politics  which  ought  to  re-elect  every
man for his self same sent next year.
But some Nelson folk have no sense of
humor and will nctually oppose the election of John Houston.  Just think of the
fun we would miss, otherwise!   ..    .-,,.
