a Bird's Eye View
I UK proceedings in the lluu.se uf Commons at Ottawa are
intensely interesting; not because of the much that is being
done, but father because of the much that is being left
Idono. The House is in reality "marking time." The Opposition
J apparently as determined as ever to force the Government to the
juntry on tho Naval Question, and it must be admitted is succeed-
; in deepening the conviction that Mr. Borden will be compelled to
bid. If so, it will not be bocause the Opposition has any con-
Itent, practical or effective policy to suggest ns an alternative, but
pause it is more united than the Government ranks and because it
i benefitted by several adventitious occurrences during the progress
I the debate. It is impossible to believe in the sin-
rity of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's clamouring for a
Inadinn Navy, built in Canada and manned by
Inadiaus. He knows that it cannot be effected for
liny years, yet he persists in urging it as an alter-
|tive to the Government proposal.   He has gained
ne strength through the determined attitude of
listrnlia nnd New Zealand to build their own ships,
Id he has undoubtedly scored a point in connection
Ith Mr. Winston Churchill's admissions in the
ritish Mouse of Commons affecting the mutter of
liorgency, and especially bis statement that when
Ir. Borden left England they hud no common
Iniiid of agreement with respect to the Canadian
litribiition. The Week has always maintained, and
Js the first pa por in Canuda to do so, that Mr, Bor-
. complicated'thc situntion and increased his owii
ficulties by importing into his resolution far too
juiy details affecting matters which properly belong-
[not to an emergency contribution but to a ponnan-
policy. Xo doubt this wns done for u very good
lison; it was characteristic of the honesty and frank-
Jss of Mr. Borden's nature; it was a concession to
Iblic sentiment, and it evinced a desire to take tlie
lintry into his confidence ns fnr as possible. All tho
Ine, it was a tactioa! error wliieh has cost him dearly
Janse it has furnished the Opposition with an op-
Irtunity to discuss permanent principles in eonnec-
lii with preliminary resolutions, which should have
Jin confined to making an unconditional grant. The
lole question is now whether the grant can be made
Th the assent of Parliament without going more
Ily into the permanent policy and securing the ver- ■
It of the constituencies. Tf Mr. Fielding is con-
lent, it cannot; and tliere is little doubt that his
Isence at Ottawa now has the highest significance
I possibly a sinister aspect. One thing is certain—
jt if an appeal to the constituencies is forced, it
1st in common fairness be preceded by a Redistri-
lion Bill, so that the verdict of the constituencies
ly be upon the broadest and most equitable basis,
proceedings of the next two weeks will be
Ignant with interest. The extent of Mr. Fielding's
luence, which is great, will be determined and the
lion of the Senate will probably lie decided upon,
le session of the House cannot be prolonged in-
linitely nnd while there can be no objection in prin-
le in introducing the closure, it would be in tho
best degree regrottable if it had to be introduced
J the first time in connection with a policy of Im-
linl import on whicii there is it broad division of
liiion.
fln American Plutus
Y the passing of J. P. Morgan, America loses
:,he one man who in modern times has earned
he title of Plutus, and the financial world
|'s possibly its greatest single out-standing figure,
by no means certain that Mr. Morgan owned
■olutely the largest fortune; it is almost certain that
(controlled the largest amount of money. It is
|.ible that this statement might be subject to cor-
Tion if the inner workings of some of the great
I'openn financial houses were us well known as
lie of Mr. Morgan's firm; but, courting less pub-
I'y, their heads hnve not been as much in the
|3-light as the powerful man who has just died. His personality
well known and recognized, and whereas in times of finiinciiil
ss one talked of "the Rothschilds," as of a financial corporation,
nlways Bpoke of "Morgan" as if be wore the solo owner nnd
Itroller of the fabulous wealth associated with his name. Mr.
gan was a many-sided man. Commencing lifo in a modest
lere, he lived to acquire a. reputed fortune of $300,000,000, thus
king to some extent in the same class as Carnegie and Rockefeller,
fellectually he was 11 stronger man than either and he took a
pder, a sounder nnd a saner view of nnindnne affairs. Instead
iensational advertisement and the expression of a frantic desire
tat rid of his wealth, he contented himself with giving unostentn-
is support to public and philanthropic institutions, and in times
financial difficulties coming to the rescue in a manner which
Jned for him universal admiration. It is possible that the onor-
is sums of money which almost in a flash he placed at the dis-
!al of the "New York banks in 1907 will be the ono incident bv
which he will be best remembered. There: js no doubt .that his
promptness and sagacity averted a catastrophe; and while it may be
ni'giied that in protesting the market he was covering his own interests, olio cannot liwp thinking how differently he might hn'.e. nctod to
his own enr.chmait, had he wished to take advantage of the times
and like Jay Gould become a wrecker instead of a salvor. Mr. Morgan was « patron |f art; it generous supporter of the Church, and n
considerable investor in theatrical enterprises. But all these were
side issues compared with the work of accumulating and investing
a colossal fortune, acquiring what few modern millionaifes have
acquired, the1 confidence of the public and in establishing a reputation
for conservatism, sagacity and unselfishness. It is difficult to love
ii   millionaire.    Enormous  wealth  is a handicap.   The world can
ment that the time has arrived when Victoria should take her rightful position as the greatest of Pacific  ports.   The  safety  of  her
harbours, the facility of approach in all weathers, and the favourable
climatic and local conditions which she enjoys have all been aptly
demonstrated.    The point remains that to take advantage of these,
a supreme effort is needed and the psychological moment to make
that effort has arrived.     The Colonist has pointed out in a recent
editorial that the Government has agreed to spend $12,000,000 in
Halifax and the same nmount in St. John on harbour works.   The
needs of Victoria are greater thnn those of either. Local development,
the impending opening of the Panama. Canal and the approaching
completion of two Transcontinental railways are the considerations
whicli   determine   this   fact.    Two   prime features of Victoria's
development have become matters of the most urgent
necessity, the provision of wharves and a dry dock.
Towards the latter no steps have yet heen taken beyond (demonstrating that Esqiiimalt is the ideal point
mi the Pacific Coast i;or such t| work.    In claiming
this 'Yicfnria has the support of the Admiralty and
of all the highest naval authorities.   The dock is a
:)   necessity not only in anticipation of naval development, hilt to deal with large vessels of the mercantile
iharinej wdiich at present have to go to Seattle or San
Francisco shipyards for repairs.    The former has
* teen brought, within the range of practical politics
by the letting of a contract to tbe eminent British
/   firjn of Sir John Jackson, Ltd..    The construction
j /    of lthe breakwater has commenced, but already it lias
been discovered that tbo wise policy would be to
build the breakwater and pier at tbe same time. This
matter wns brought under the notice of the contractors and the Government by Jir. J. S. McLachlan,
the resident engineer, immediately on his appointment    Tt was a subject of discussion at Ottawa between Mr. Brooks, engineer for Sir John Jackson,
nnd the Government, but it was considered undesirable to delay tho signing of the contract and the commeneement of work by raising the question of a new
specification which had only just been passed upon
and accepted.    All the preliminary  work   will   lie
available for whatever plan might ultimately bo carried out; so preparations have gone ahead and meanwhile Mr. G. IT. Barnard, M.P., has been discussing
the matter in detail with the Government. The action
of the Board of Trade at this juncture is most apposite, and the decision of the City Council to finance
the expenses of the delegation justified to the full,
('apt.  Logan and  Mr. Thomson will endeavour to
convince the Department nt Ottawa that instend of
proceeding with a mere breakwater, having u width
at tlie top of only eight feet, upon which subsequently
piers would have to bc constructed at n heavy additional outlay, it would te both more practical and
more economical to build the breakwater and pier
simultaneously.    This will  involve an addition of
approximately one million dollars to the present contract of $1,800,000, but it would save at least half a
million dollars in construction and give better as
well as prompter results.    The delegation may be
trusted to emphasize every feature of this alternative
proposal.   Its members nre men of the highest ability
and the fullest knowdedge of local conditions nnd requirements.    Capt. Logan is not merely n marine
authority, but an expert, who has most favourably
impressed all wdio hnve had the privilege of listening
to his various addresses on lhe subject of Victoria
ns n port.   Mr. Thomson is ono of the most Influential and successful business men in Victoria; a lunn
of few but weighty words; with largo interests nnd
the fullest confidence in the future of the cily.    No
stronger delegation con!' have teen selected, nor one
more likely to accomplish a task so vital to the highest interest of the citv ami Province.
Increasing Canada's Trade
This Phoeograph is Published by Special Permission of Sir John Jackson
never ucquire the right perspective in which to view Plutus, and so
il cannot do justice to J. P. Morgan; it will always think that he
might have mnde better use of his wealth; that he might hnve shared
it to a greater exlent with the poor, and it may even stand to his
debit forever that he was the founder of the Trust system, at nny
rate in its modern development. But if nil these considerations
force us to view him in n distorted mirror, they cannot wholly obscure the human side of his nature, nor can they banish the recollection thnt nt the last the man who held the financial world in the
hollow of his liiinil could find no means to deny the summons which
bade him hand in his accounts.
Rn Important Mission
CAPT.  LOGAN nml Mr,  11.  B. Thomson, M.P.P., hnve been
selected hy the Board of Trnde to go to Ottawa on one of the
most important missions ever undertaken by representative
Victorians.    Their work will he to convince the Dominion Govern-
T
IIK TRADE of the Dominion is increasing
literally by leaps and bounds. Wc have for
the lirst time passed the billion dollar mark
and yet the expansion of our industries und lhe
development of our natural resources is so great that we have to seek
larger markets. No country in the world is more richly endowed
with raw material of every kind, nnd ultimately no country in the
world will surpass Canada in industrial activity and the most highly
finished products. Mennwhile, the necessity 1ms arisen to stimulate
trade along certain channels, Imperial sentiment, ns well ns tie*
working out of natural laws, is moving in the direction of encouraging inter-Imperial trnde. Canada's trade in every purl of the Empire is growing, but nol nearly us fast ns her trnde with the I'liited
Stntes. We hnve tried to encourage trading within the Empire by
establishing n Preference: tliere may be other menus whicli could lie
adopted to facilitate the same end. At the present time it is the
speial business of the lion. George E. Foster, Minister of Trade ond
Commerce, to study this great subject; to ascertain its possibilities,
nnd to devise menus for consolidating the commercial business of the
Dominion abroad. He is in Australia for this specific purpose. The
Literal press hns tried hard to belittle his mission, und hns voiced Page Two

expectations of failure on account of the fact that a States' election is
imminent. Hut such idle tnlk need not bc taken seriously. Mr. Foster is meeting' in conference Trade Commissioners from other parts
of the Empire and there is no reason to doubt that the result of his
mission to Australia will be the development of existing lines of business unci the originating of new ones. From Australia he goes to
Japan, where the possibilities of a large trade with Canada are being
seriously considered. Tt is possible that Japan will never offer the
field whicii China offers, and that it will always produce more of its
own requirements, but n substantial business bus already bcon established in important staples. It is the opinion of some of the lending
business men of tho Dominion that the exportation of grain and
flour, wbicb is now in its infancy, muy develop into an enormous
trade, The Week hopes to be in u position in an early issue to give
fuller particulars of u project along these lines whicli bus been
initiated by .Mr. Arthur E. Hepburn of Vnncouver, and which is
being furthered in Japan by tbe Consular authorities. The scheme
is so extensive tbat it is shortly to be brought to the attention of u
strong syndicate of London financiers, and may lend to unexpected
developments at the Coast within a short time. Altogether, the prospects for a continually growing trnde with the Orient are excellent,
nnd the Minister of Trade and Commerce nud his stuff mny be relied
upon tn test, tlieir possibilities to the full.
Forcible Feeding
THERE cun he no doubt among its readers as to where The
\Ve?k stands on the subject of the militant suffragettes. Its
attitude will therefore not be misunderstood when it takes
nn uncompromising stand ngninst forcible feeding, believing it to be
barbarous, inhuman, illegal and unnecessary. Ko doubt it is very
much easier to write editorials than to manage n screaming .suffragette
nnd The Week makes full allowance for this fact. But it may still
exercise the privilege of criticizing the policy of the Home Government in this particular matter. The militant suffragettes hnve been
successful in one thing nt any rate; tbey have oiit-gencralled the
Department. As a rule the law is considered ns hnving discharged
its functions, when it has captured a criminal, tried liiui for his
offence, sentenced and placed him safely in gaol. But that is the
least part and by fnr the easiest of its functions ns affecting militant
suffragettes. The trouble begins after they are in gnol; they will not
eat. Up to dnte the Home Secretary hns snid that they shnll be compelled to ent, nnd so they huve been subjected to force nnd indignity.
No doubt the policy wus decided on in the firm belief that if the
women were uot forcibly fed they would die. What would happen if
a similar crusade were embarked upon by nil imprisoned criminals
nnd the same remedy applied ? Clearly imprisonment would become
a farce and the strong arm of the law would he paralyzed. If a person
died in gnol as the result of refusing to take food, there would be no
legal or moral responsibility resting on anyone. Tf the food hnd been
furnished nnd refused, those responsible for administering the law
would have fulfilled their legal obligations. Why should there be any
difference mnde for women ? . And above all. why should that differ-
once lie accompanied by an Mogul act'. Tliere is good reason to believe
that if a woman died as a direct result of forcible feeding, which
might easily happen, the Government would be placed in n very difficult position. Tn any event it is an admission of incompetency, which
does little credit to the intelligence or the humanity of those responsible. As to whnt should be done, it is not so easy to determine,
although that circumstance does not in any wny detract from the
strength of thc argument ngninst doing nn improper thing. Many
suggestions have been mnde, some of which involve no interference
with the liberty of the subject nnd certainly no such drastic treatment
ns is involved in forcible feeding. There is little doubt thnt before
lmig tlie Government will lie compelled to abandon this policy nnd nt
the snme time to adopt some alternative in the case of women who
have been properly convicted rind sentenced, becoming contumacious.
Of nil the suggestions yet mnde that of deportation seems to lie nt
once thc most sensible and the least objectionable; it has heen seriously recommended by men of high position nnd sound judgment, nnd in
view of the extremities to whicii the suffragettes have recently resorted
it would be impossible to suggest n single reason why a measure of
this kind should not he resorted to.
The Bankers' Trust
THE decision of the Attorney-General to make the nffnirs of the
Bunkers' Trust, nnd indeed of nil Trust Companies in the
Province, n mntter of Government investigation, will meet
with general approval. While there is no reason to suppose that the
business of our Trust Companies is nol conducted in the main along
legitimate nnd legal lines, the revelations in connection with the
Rankers' Trust are calculated to shake public confidence, nnd for
the fair fame of the Province it is desirable that the truth shall be
known nnd full confidence restored. With respect to the Bunkers'
Trust little cun be snid nt lhe present moment in view of the Court
proceedings which nre under way. Apnrt, however, from the
chnrges laid against certain individuals, il is permissible to clear
up one feature of lhe ense nbout wbicb there hns been some misunderstanding. The mischief has been wrought, not hy the management of
the Bankers ' Trust, but by tbe firm known ns The Negotiators, Ltd.,
a concern formed apparently for the purpose of peddling the stock of
the Bankers' Trust. This stock selling proposition wns arranged by
contract, the contract being entered into sonic time last yenr with
men who were then engaged in forming the Blinkers' Trust, but long
before the present directorate came into office.' Tn selling lhe stock
The Negotiators, Ltd., appear to hnve mnde reckless statements, and
generally to have conducted the business in nn improper manner, nnd
ns fnr ns one enn judge at present the disaster which overtook the
Bankers' Trust wns due to this cnuse. Too much sympathy cannol
lie expressed for Mr. Godfrey Booth, who hns been n most unfortunate victim of circumstances. After more thnn twenty yenrs of
honourable conduct ns n banker, without n single blemish to his
record, he left the bnnk to necept the position nf General Manager of
fhe Bankers' Trust; he wns nominal manager for a few weeks only;
was never placed in n position to transact business, because funds
were not available, but wns mnde a tool of by the vendors of stock in
The Negotiators, Ltd.. his nnme nnd personal character licing their
chief asset. As soon as he saw bow things were going be lirst protested against the conduct of nffnirs and then resigned. ITo could
hardly do more, or less, and whatever mny lie thought of his association with sueh an ill-stnrred venture, no one who knows him personally can come lo any olher conclusion thnn that of nil tbe men who
hnve been victimized, he is the greatest sufferer. TTis knowledge of
the nffnirs of the Bunkers' Trust will be invaluable in connection
with any investigation which may be held, as bis statements will be
entitled to the fullest credence.

Sergeant Webb's Appointment
IT would hardly be worth while to touch upon the promotion of
Sergeant Webb on tbe local force but for die unfairness of The
Times in seeking to make political capital, not only at the expense of its opponents, which is natural, but at llic sacrifice of its own
consistency, which also is not surprising. It urges tbat "if appointments are not based upon merit, the morale of fl\r police force will
suffer." It admits the competency of Sergeant Webb, and yet denounces his appointment simply because there happened lo ho sevoral
officers who have seen longer service. Now, while seniority should
always lis recognized, it would be u very one-sided argument to sny
that it should take preecdenc of nnything else. Sergeant Webb is
not u newcomer; he hns served the city for quite a number of years,
nnd The Times bus no ground for suggesting that in making the appointment the Commissioners were influenced by uny other consideration than to appoint the best man to the vacant office.

Speculating Again
VICTORIA is favoured with a visit from XI
Dominion Trade Commissioner. Mr. Grigg
very high attainments as an authority on all matters connected
with trade and commerce, and also as an expert statistician. He
achieved n high reputation in the Old Country, and when Sir Wilfrid
Laurier asked the Government to recommend the ablest man at tlieir
disposal as an advisor to the Canadian Government, Mr. Grigg was
selected. For five years hc collated und published nn Annual Blue
Book dealing with the Trade Statistics of the Dominion. His report
was always eagerly sought after and was everywhere regarded as a
conservative, reliable and safe estimate (|f the situation. For the last
two yenrs Mr. Grigg has fileld the position of Trade Commissioner
for the Dominion, a position for which no man is better qualified. TTc
is on his way to Japan to meet the '.Minister of Trade and Commerce
nnd before returning from the Orient will mnke a personal inspection
of conditions both in Japan and China with a view to strengthening
and developing their business relations with Canada. Tt is not, too
much to say that great things may reasonably be expected as tbe result
of this mission, for no country commands the services of more brilliant and successful commercial experts than the lion. G. E. Foster
and his worthy Commissioner.
The Duty of the Government
THERE is no difference of opinion as to the desirability of establishing a lnrge shipbuilding works at Victoria. It is recognized thnt this is a prime factor iu the development of the city
und Island, It is admitted that such a work will become a necessity
when the .large steamers which will travel to this Const by wny of lhe
Panama Canal will begin to arrive.   It will bc a slill  *e  urgent
necessity when u naval fleet is stationed on the Pacific Coast, anil that
is not so far off us some peoplo imagine. To say this is nol in lie-
little the splendid enterprise known as the R. C. Murine Works,
established nt Esquimalt by the Messrs. Bullen. Too much cannot
be snid for the enterprise, und lhe energy nnd the ability witb which
these works hnve been conducted, und probably few people outside
the works kuow the extent and range of the present, activities of tbe
firm, or that constant employment is given to seven hundred men.
With their resources the Messrs. Bullen hnve worked wonders, but
there is n limit to the possibilities of individual effort as well as of
private enterprise. The time has come when, in order to keep pace
witli tbe growing requirements of the port, these works should be converted into a huge undertaking, with sufficient funds available to
brunch out in fhe direction of shipbuilding on n lnrge scnle. Tbe
industry is nt present our chief usset. No other finds employment for
so mnny men or contributes so largely to the upkeep of the community. Several efforts have been mnde to introduce English capital,
but it is obvious thnt something more is needed—the backing of the
Government. This would turn the scale, and would undoubtedly enable any well organized scheme lo be carried out. 11 is uot a matter
of mere private concern; the public interest and the future of the
city and district are nt stake. Whnt hus been done in New Brunswick should be done iu British Columbia. By n series of well-
digested resolutions, the Provincial Government nf New Brunswick
bus set forth its resolve to nssisl tiie establishment of a large shipbuilding enterprise at St. John. The raison d'etre of their policy is
thnt "the operation of such works would add very materially lo the
trade at the port of St. John, nnd to its importance as an industrial
centre, and would nlso prove of undoubted advantage and benefit to
the province nl lnrge in affording a large amount of employment to
labourers and artisans, and u greatly enlarged market for the product
of initios, forests and farms." If these reasons nre sufficient lo influence llic Government of New Brunswick, tbey nre jusl us sound iu
 ' own Province.   The particular form iu which Government aid
might be given is a mutter for careful consideration; il might be by
exemption frnm taxation, nr possibly by the guarantee nf bonds; bm
the i in port u nee of doing something cuuiiol be over-rated und lhe necessity for iho Government inking n bund in ibe matter cannot be denied.
More Police' Wanted
IT would be a mistake to magnify the occurrence nl ihe corner of
Cook nnd View Streets on Wednesday night iuto one nf serious
importance, though il is quite a new thing in Victoria for a lady
to be molested nn tbe public streets ut nny hour of lhe duy or night.
It bus been our proud boast thnt the streets were as safe as private
premises, and ladies have been accustomed to go to the postoffice, fnr
instance, nt any time without the slightest fear. This is no longer the
ense, and while the incident referred to hnd a harmless ending, the
resull tniglll have been far different if there had not been an unexpected arrival on the scene. Coming so soon nfter the protest of Tho
Week ngninst the Mayor's action in refusing Chief Lnngley the full
complement of officers nsked for, one cannol but regnrd ii ns tin nn-
townril commenl upon snob u policy. The Week repents whnt il has
snid befure, liml the security of Victoria is ils chief asset, nud to sacrifice its reputation for the sake of what il would cost to provide a dozen
or a score extra officers is very much worse thnn "spoiling the ship
for n hn'port.h of tnr."

ihat prescience which invariably characterizes its insight into the pn

Sir Richard McBride is going to Ottawa before returning to Victorit
Tbe Times is nn old hand at. the game, and like a racing tipster, bn
two or three best guesses in order to cover possible defeat, its firs
guess is that he is going to assist the Canadian Northern to negotial
a loan of $40,000,000 with the Federal Government, and tbis is supposed to be necessary because, to use the elegant phraseology of the
Times. "Mr. Borden's spine needs stiffening." Judging from lib
conduct of the naval debute in the House, one would hardly be justi
tied in coining to such a conclusion; but Ict that pnss. The seconc
guess is thnt not only Sir William Mackenzie, but Mr. Borden, need
help, "lie is confronted with nn insurrection in his ranks," ane
'Bob" Rogers is supposed to bc intriguing ngninst his leader. This ii
news whieh would have done credit to the column of manufacture,
telegraphic despatches from Ottawa, whicii so often grace the column
of the Times; but even ns such it is subject to correction in a subse
quont issue. Now, to save the Times further trouble and an mine
eessary expenditure of energy and ink, Tbe Week will confide to it
editorial ear a State secret. The sole object which Sir Riehar
McBride has in view in going to Ottawa is to learn at first band fron
Sir Wilfrid Laurier bow he proposes lo "build n Canadian Navy, ii
Canadian yards, with Canadian money, and to man it with Cana
dinus;" and how soon he will he prepared to guarantee a Heel unit oi
the Pncifie Coast.
V. I. Development League
THE V. 1. Development League is to be congratulated on the iu
forest evoked by its annual meeting, on the excellent repor
which was presented, and on the re-election of its capable am
populnr officers. Of the President, Mr. Simon Leiser, it. is super
lluous to spenk. To describe him adequately one would hnve to coii
n new phrase, und that is a task for a savant; but in his person lu
combines everything thnt is energetic, enterprising and alert, urn
among bis numberless activities the work of the Development l.eagm
is by no means the least important. Mr. McGaffey is a capable am
conscientious secretary; he makes mistakes sometimes, as The Weel
bus had occasion to point ont, but lhey are easily forgiven in view o:
his devotion to duly and his exceptional competency as a publicity
agent. The whirligig of time brings changes; il is only a few your.*
since the Tourist Association wns merged into the Developmen
League, and now it project is on foot, fathered by the able Presiden
of the Board of Trade, either to amalgamate or nt uny rule to co-rclnti
the various publicity agencies of the cily. The move is a wise one
nnd should prove to be both economic, effective uud popular.
The New Port
IX commenting lust, week on the important new shipping point nov
being established nt Port Edwnrd, The Week mnde an unnceount
able slip, referring to its ns on an island. This is incorrect. Por
Edwnrd is situnte on the mainland about eight niiles from Princ
Rupert. The G. T. P. Railway passes along its entire waterfront bc
fore reaching the terminal cily. Its special advantages, comparing i
with Prince Rupert, nre thnl it is more completely sheltered nnd thu
ihe water is shallower making it much more economical fo istrttc
piers, wharves und docks. The new port is already attracting a grcn
deal of attention, and among the heaviest investors in thc proper.,
there are lending citizens of Victorin.

great and successful future for tho
fruit culture in tllis Canada's largest

At tne Street Corner
BY THE LOUNGER
3NCE upon n time the lirst of
April wns a dnv of which one
I lo beware. II wns n customer;*.
In In sw nn elderly gentleman par-
US' down the street with "Kiel;
n" writ  large upon his bnck.    Up
noon it was permissible lo tell any
mber ol' lies without breaking the
ith Commandment, and generally to
y Ibe  fool  without   losing  either
respect of oneself or of one's
ighbour. Hut wc appear to hnve
mged all that. In these busy days
strenuous living, when prices are
h and funds are low, we have no
io lo indulge in such frivolities, and
it is that one more of those li'nnn-
s liltle annual festivities is  going
way of tlie rest and being "drop-
1." I can't help feeling tliat it is
her sad Hint wc have so liltle lime
fvadays iu which tn piny Hie fool.
tnke our pleasures too seriously;
take Ihem of set purpose and
er allow ourselves the luxury of
using ourselves unless Hie opportu-
y occurs during lhe period of the
set strictly apart for such things.
favourite quotation, und one I am
ist  ashamed   to   write   again,  is
i Ibe pen of thai jovial old poel-
losiipher Horace, who must surely
e   been   contemplating   nn   April
I juke when he snid
"Dulce est desiperc in loco."
By an odd coincidence llic first duy
iVpril is immediately preceded by
Ihirly-lirst  day of March.    The
Incidence strikes me as odd, because
oticed in n daily paper which prints
birthday warning every day iu the
ii*.  Hint  persons born   on   March
it nre to "he careful oi! lire or dis-
ticst persons and of risks."  Now it
very obvious tliat a more suitable
Ihday motto for Hie day before All
id's Hay could not   havo  been   deled.   At the same time I feel that
printing of such n notice is calcu-
id lo be rather  misleading.     We
;iw Hull there are many persons livin the world, even in this year of
jo, who lirmly believe every word
|ich they see in print.   I\ow, is it
possible Hint such an one, rending
notice, would assume Hint, cou-
■iwise, persons not horn on March
have no reason to "be careful of
dishonest persons and of risks."
II an interpretation, uud I contend
i it is quite a reasonable one, would
mosl  detrimental   to   the   person
acted upon it and persisted in
■ining his bed with an electric light
i, cashed cheques for strangers and
:;hl innumerable tickets in sweep-
:es.    For my own part   I believe
the majority of persons in Yic-
ii, judged by such a criterion ns
nbove, must have been born ou
c oilier day of lhe year Ihan Mar.
, and thought Ihat therefore lhey
no need lo be careful iu such
lers.
hud thought   that   this   week    I
luld he able to write an article with-
liuving lo publish a single coni-
int..   The duy arrived on whicii  I
myself down to pour out the nocu-
ated woes of a week, and not one
Ic woes had come in to hc rcgis-
id,   Truth to tell, 1 wns rather ex-
sed  in  my mind   as   to   what   I
uld do when the inevitable'moment
io, beyond which 1 could not pust-
Jc the grinding mil id' my weekly
lunn.   And then ul the last moment
lid to hurry over lo lhe Pomborlon
Ick, and nl the fool of lhe stairs I
into n man who poured  into  my
I a "kick" as unpleasant as any
i which I have hnd In deal.   In con-
licnce of bis story I  hnve had lo
Ihe   attention   of   the   proper
unities lo a nuisance existing on
nholill Street, close to llic tree, bold on dark nights of motorists, and
he snme side of lhe street.   There

iks, a liltle job for the Sanitary

notice Ihat there is not the sunn*
liosilion on llic pnrt of the mnn in
the street lo chase his neighbour's hat
when i| goes careering mi ils headlong course down the middle of the
road. There wus a time when the
man whose hul was blown from liis
head was the only person within a
square block who did not gel excited
over the matter. Everyone else look
a1 lenst one chance ut the elusive
headgear, and some really look a
great deal of trouble lo try nnd catch
il. Invariably il wns rescued by u
stranger. Last week, you will remember thai in Victoria we liml a pretty
stilt' gnle blowing, und there were
more hnls on the streets than ever
Ihere \\_v_ wigs mi Ihe green at Don-
nybrook Pair (I nm not quite sure
whether these two expressions really
go logelhcr, but lhey seem lo Itl remarkably well). However, lo our
millions. Though 1 saw innumerable
hats of all shapes, colours and sizes
Hying madly up the street, I saw no
kindly strangers assisting in tlieir
rupture. As a hut enme whizzing
nlong n few stray feel wuve carelessly
thrust forth, hut whether lo slay Ihe
vagrant or to speed it mi its wny, il
would hnve been hard lo tell, ll was
the owner himself who had to lake
trouble if he wanted lo go covered
without the expense of a visit to llle
batter. And, of course, il is little
tilings like these which ure the signs
of the limes, nml which lead us to the
question us In whether wc nre becoming less polite or more sensible I linn
we were in days of yore. But let Ihul
resi lill llic "silly seuson."
To what iiiai'vellous lengths cun
moving-pictures go when talcs from
Dickens nre told upon lhe theatre
screen, und Pickwick himself is lo lie
seen together with Hie immortal Sum
nnd Mr. Jingle? 1 four I mny he
trending ou the toes of a colleague hy
talking of a show in Ihis column, but
I wus so immensely pleased with the
pictures taken from "Pickwick Papers" by the American Vitngraph Co.,
and displayed this week at llic Majestic Theatre, that I feel I must
write n line nbout them. As to whether the inimitable John Bunny is nn
exact reproduction of Mr. Pickwick
may ho a matter of opinion. The
latter was never represented as an
Adonis, it is true, but lie was all that
wns comfortably fat, oozing with
good nature nml fellowship, and that
.lohn Hunny is—in Hie pictures at uny
rule. Personally 1 was more delighted with these Pickwick pictures
than with any that I. hnve ever seen.
The time will eventually come when
not only will our school children bc
tnken to the moving picture theatres
instend of to school, but lhe parents
also, lo say nothing of bachelors und
old muids, will sil enmasse in comfortable chairs aud see lhe latest novel instend of rending il.
One thing struck me pnrticulnrly in
Hie moving picture theatre, and before
this I have thought of mentioning il.
nnd Ihat is the habit wliieh people
have of gelling up right ul the beginning of a picture or just before lhe
end. People who hnve time to spend
in such places arc surely nol ill a desperate hurry to get out Hint il is incumbent on thein lo lonvo al the identical scene ill the picture nl which
lhey entered. I cun understand people leaving about half wuy through;
lull so mnny leave nt llic edges, as it
wcre,     And when  these  | pie ure
women who start pulling their hats on
before rising, and Ihen collect their
belongings whilst on Iheir feel, lhe
mere man silting directly behind is
apt lo gel annoyed, 'fo my mind,
moving pictures ure the most fascinating things, nml I hulc In miss nny
pnrt of Ihem, especially thnl pari of
an intensely drnmutic piny which
shows you exactly hew the horrid villain is "uiiing to net his." 1 confess
thnl I lake greal comfort in knowing
Hint there are very mnny people, old

ANYONE sitting round the rotlmdu
nl the .'Impress Hotel during Hie

quiet, venerulile looking geutleiliau
with silvery hair, a robust hgui'c linl
apparently nlwut sixty rear's of me,
strolling quielly towards the dining

He walked so slowly as lo suggest abstraction of thought. He was always

from Hie hold, but lie could hnrilly
help noticing Ihat he invariably /proceeded direct to the Parliament
Buildings, wliieh swallowed him up
for I lie next four or five hours.
Inside, howov'er, they knew that
this quiet, soft-spoken, mild-mannered man understood his busi-,'
ness, and knew how to do it. Ho

fuming, but n modest inan crowned
with very ureal authority and exercising Hint authority "sternly though

the Accounting nnd Auditing Department of thc Provincial Government,
and his name is W. M. Dunlop. He is
"making good" in Victoria as hc has
always done elsewhere.
Mil. .1. P. SHAW, Hie Member for
Kandoops, bus entered ou liis
duties as Chairman of tlie Commission appointed lo investigate Indian
Reserves throughout the Province. A
more capable man could not hnve been
selected. Mr. Shaw is well known as
the successor of Mr. Pulton, who wns
for some yenrs Attorney-General for
the Province nnd Member for Kamloops. lu his constituency lie is
known as u strong mau, u good organizer, a good speaker and the possessor
of Ihul invnliiahle adjunct, "a business head." He heal his political opponent mil of his boots, and is so
(Irmly ciilrcnche ill the regard of tlle
constituency thnt il is quite certain
that uo one can oust him from his
sent. He is well acquainted with the
Indians and has studied ninny of their
problems. He talks Chinook, and has
had dealings with the Indians of the
Interior for more Ihiiu twenty yenrs.
There is very litle sentiment aboul
Mr. Shaw, and he mny be relied upon
lo gel ut the facts, and to present
them iu a logical, cold-blooded fashion.
When the Commission lias finished its

after spending three ilnys here, returned to lhe bind of snows, I refei
to .Mr. Percy P. Godenrnth, the nc-

with Hint modesty whicii is so characteristic of him, could hardly escape

Reprint of an extract from the annual address (Jan. 14, 1913) of
Alexander Laird, Esq., General
Manager of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce ;—
IN common ,wilh the rest of tho
world we ure living in a time of
high prices, and the incidence of these
prices on those who have fixed incomes of earnings is so heavy as to
constitute the greatest economic dif-
licully we huve to face. I shall not
attempt to deal fully with a subject
whihe is being studied by Government
commissions in many leading countries ond which will, let us hope, be
referred In an international commission. There nre some forces which
effect the general trend of prices,
others whicli muy cause any particulal
commodity lo go above or below tlu
line of the general trend, and again
others which are local and produce
such apparent anomalies ns higher
prices for foodstuffs in cities nearer
sources of cheap production as coin-
pared with more remote centres of
consumption. Without, therefore, discussing the effect of nn enlarged nud
cheapened supply of gold, the enormous increase of credit pnrtly mnde
possible thereby, and the effect of
mnny other forces causing a general
upward trend of prices, we mny profitably consider some local causes which
put the people of Canada at an nn-
neeesasry disadvantage. One of the
most powerful and inexcusable local
causes for the high price of food is
lhe condition of onr country roads. It
must be clear Ihat if a farmer has to
travel len or twenty miles to a city to
sell his produce, every hour of delay
lo himself and his horses and wagon,
every bushel or pound less he is able
to carry, every dny lost in the length
of Hie life of his horses and wngon,
cnuse just so much increase in the
cost of the article he has to sell. To
the extent Ihat this needless and cruel
loss might, if avoided, partly add to
the farmers' profits and pnrtly lessen lhe cost to the consumer, the
state of our roads is little short of a
crime if thc bad roads around a eity
cause the price of a food lo be much
higher than it need be, one of the results is to enable producers hundreds,
perhaps thousnnds, of miles nwny to
enter into competition with the furmer in his own county, beenuse the cost
in transit over one mile of hnd wngon
rond will cover the cost over ninny
miles of good railroad. This competition may help the consumer by
keeping prices from rising still higher, but it will not bring the price below the point fixed by the extra cost
from the hnd locnl roads. It will not
do any good for those of us who live
in well-paved cities to blame the farmer for bad roads. They cannot be expected to build good roads entirely at
their own expense, and good roads will
not come so long us we wait for anything as unfair as this. It is not thnt
we do not know how to construct
good roads. We know fairly well
what we should do, but we hesitate to
do it.
Can Hie people of Canada be made
to realize thai every man, woman nnd
child suiters from the evil of bad
rouds whether lhey use the roads directly or not"/

The WEEK, with whicli is Incorporated tie Week-End.
Victoria, April 5, 191
Real Estate and Finance
THE financial situation is affected, first, by the difficulty of
raising capital, aud, secondly, by the denudation of the banking reserves through the hoarding of cash, which makes banks
indisposed to lend for short periods except on high interest, remarked
Sir George Paish, in speaking in London of the condition of thc
European money market.
''The continuance of the Balkan war," he continued, "the uncertainty of the real relations between the great powers and the decisions
of the governments of both Germany and France to make great additions to their standing armies, as well as to spend huge sums on additional fortifications, aro keeping the people of Europe, and more
particularly the people of the Continent, in a state of anxiety which
is reflected in the desire of nearly everyone to refrain from enlisting
new capital, and is inducing many, especially in France, Germany
and Austria, to hoard large sums of cash.
"From one point of view the present position is not much worse
than that in December, that is, the amount of cash now hoarded is
not greater than the amount hoarded three mouths ago. But usually
in the spring the cash returns to the great banks in a large volume.
However, the amount returned this year in much smaller volume
than usual.
"A very serious situation would long since have arisen but for
the power' of the banks of France, Germany and Austria to make
practically unlimited issues of notes and the consequent ability of
the bankers to supply the cash demanded by customers for hoarding
and by borrowing from the State banks.
''Bankers dislike borrowing from the State banks. As far as
possible they are curtailing loans to avoid it. How long this situation
will last* none is able to predict or forecast, but it is evident the
greater the delay in restoring confidence to the European public, the ,
greater will be the monetary stringency, as business is these days
cannot be carried on without the free investment of public savings
and without the steady expansion of bankers' loans.
' The times of greatest pressure on the Continent are felt at the
end of each quarter, more especially in the quarters ending iu March
ancl September. The efforts of tho Continental houses to borrow
money wherever loans are obtainable and to import gold, are for the
purpose of assisting customers to satisfy their need of capital at this
time of greatest pressure.
"Money probably will be in very strong demand until the end of
March, but in April some relaxation may be shown.
"Everything depends ou the international political situation. In
my judgment the outstanding political problems are in the course of
adjustment, and no fresh complications need be feared. Austria and
Russia havo come to an understanding. I do not believe that Austria
will fight about the besieged eity of Scutari, which the allies demand
shall go to Montenegro* The European investing public, apart from
those of England, will not find new capital until a complete settlement of the outstanding problems is effected.
"Whether or not* the financial situation will become sufficiently
serious to force the various governments to take more active steps to
effect a final settlement of the outstanding questions, T cannot say.
They are, however, beginning to realize that something must be done
to restore confidence, and it is possible that settlement may bo reached
sooner than one is now able to anticipate.
"Germany's proposal to make what practically amounts to a
forced loan of $250,000,000 has, of course, added to the uneasy feeling among the investors of Germany. But it is nowise probable that
this crude proposal will be modified.
"Briefly, the financial situation on the Continent of Europe is
distinctly unpleasant, but its seriousness may itself cause tlie various
governments to take steps for the essential adjustment and, of course,
as tho investigators are reassured and capital flows freely again to new
enterprises and cash now hoarded is returned to the banks, the situation will iiumedialelv lose its danger."—Tho Monetarv Times.
WASTE of by-products in Western Canada especially lias been
noticeable. Tbe chief reason is that
time is too valuable and labor too
scarce to earn a difficult dollar when
nn easy dollar culls attractively. Sn
eunl dust is wasted, straw is burned
hy hundreds of Ions, and other byproducts nre sacrificed lt> Ihe demand:!
of n new country. Many schemes
have been mooted lo utilize straw in
the prairie provinces for commercial
purposes. Sn I'nr, Iheir success hns
been negligible.

staled there is material Por thc production of 375,000 Ions of briquettes
from strnw, al a cust of about $2 per
ton. As a hinder for the briquetting.
Dr. Andrews proposes to use potatoes,
which can be grown cheaply on the
prairies. The Board of Trade decided
to petition the Provincial Government
to make nn appropriation to permil
Dr. Andrews to continue his experiments.
Tlie Saskatchewan Government will
undoubtedly prove thai Dr. Andrews'
scheme hns heen ndvnnced by him beyond the early experimental stages,
before they make n grant, ns the Regina Board nf Trade proposes. Science
has mnde much progress in lhe pnst
few yenrs, nnd makes il dangerous lo

Ihe other hand, the Provincial Government should keep its eye nn the
treasury n long while before it pnrts
wilh money lo see if Regina can keep
warm on a prescription of straw and
potatoes.
CONSTRUCTION work of all
kinds nnd power plnnt development were much in evidence last year.
According to the annual report of the
Canadian General Electric Company,
Limited, that corporation played a
prominent remunerative role in that
activity. The company's profits for
Ihe Iwelve months were $2,011,719.
From Ihat amount has heen written

358, and of interest on borrowed cupi-
Inl the sum of $158,878, leaving n balance of $1,396,483. Deducting from
this nmoinil dividends on preference
anil common stock, at thc rate of
seven per cent per annum, and a
bonus of one per cent on the common
slock, amounting in all to $680,871,
I here remains a net balance of $700,-
611, of which $700,000 has been added to the reserve fund, whieh now
stands al $2,369,531. The total of
the reserve fund added to Iho balance
carried at the credit of profit nnd
loss makes a total surplus of $3,051,-
922, equal to 30.15 per cent of the
par value of the share capital of the
company, both common and preference. In addition to Ihe surplus ns
shown, the value of the real estnte

You know Prince Rupert, the whole world knows Prince Rupert. This port, the Pacific terminus of the
great Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, grew from nothing almost over night, and developed with wonderful rapidity
because it HAD TO BE. One of the greatest railroads in the world had WILLED it. Many who saw the opportunity made fortunes in Prince Rupert by investing there AT THE BEGINNING, before prices soared. It costs
money to buy inside lots at Prince Rupert now. But you have practically the same splendid opportunity in Port
Edward.
PRINCE RUPERT NEEDsS PORT EDWARD
Prince Rupert NEEDS Port Edward. Prince Rupert WITH PORT EDWARD, offers the greatest
facilities for the Pacific Coast shipping and industry of all the ports on the entire Coastline. But, without Port
Edward, Prince Rupert's capacity is cut down from the industrial standpoint because its waterfront is already
utilized, or leased, to practically its full extent, and, with development merely beginning, intending users of
industrial waterfront space MUST turn to Port Edward to supply their needs. Definite proof of this will be supplied on application.
INDUSTRIES ALREADY ASSURED
The Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric Company, Ltd., a powerful corporation, backed by the same capitalists
who are behind the Western Canada Power Co., of Vancouver, has selected Port Edward for the site of its big
power plant, and is already installing. Other large industries are assured, and among recent applications for locations were those of a cold storage plant, a large stone company and a shoe factory. The opening for industry at
this great portal of the North Pacific is marvellous, and far-sighted manufacturers are already taking advantage of it
TIIE MEN BEHIND PORT EDWARD
The Port Edward Townsite Co., Ltd., is made up of a number of prominent professional and business men,
largely Canadians. It has the support of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company, which has entered into a contract to provide complete transportation service. Port Edwards is situated near Prince Rupert, on the Mainland
and on tlie main line of the G. T. P.   That railroad has already selected the site for its station, sidings, etc.
WHAT$600 DID IN PRINCE RUPERT
When Prince Rupert lots were first offered to the public there was considerable of a feeling of doubt among
many people as to the value of the investment. History has shown, of course, that few opportunities have been
offered to the world that equaled the opening in Prince Rupert in 1909. Prince Rupert's future was assured from
the very beginning. It was at the original sale that Mr. George Duncan, of Vancouver, bought a Prince Rupert
lot for $000. That was considered a good price than, but values began to rise, and they kept on rising. Now
NOTE THIS: The same lot for which Mr. Duncan paid $600 was sold in 1912 by Harrison, Gamble & Co., of
Prince Rupert, for no less than $10,000 CASH.
It's worth more than that today, and it will be worth yet more next year. Port Edward's proposition to you
now is similar to what Prince Rupert offered in 1909. Perhaps vou missed the first one; isn't it wortli while to at
least GET ALL THE FACTS about the second?

nnd lie brings to bear all the charm
nf his personality and line art to make
them appealing in the dramatic sense.
Miss Morion's story is of the pres-
i'iil linl more domestic than political
though being laid in Washington there
is a suggestion of inside politics revealed in the telling. But the main
force is thai tlio Senator tries to keep
house and as every woman knows before finishing the sentence, lie makes a
mess of it. A woman comes to his
rescue nnd straightens him out. The
reason for her presence in the Senator's household is further revealed
and heightens tlie dramatic intensity
of the theme, but the Senator comes
up smiling in the face of this adversity and proves his worth and nlso his
grasp of affairs wliieh a man can
handle.

HELEN Gardner will appear in
"Cleopatra." at lhe Victoria
Thentre, April S, I) and 10. Six thousuud feet of Ihe most marvelous pic-
lures ever shown on a screen will be
used.
It is unreasonable to judge any
historical figure from a far-removed
 le   of   morals.    Hence   Cleopatra
should be considered according to the
slock from whieh she came, the customs of her time uml thc incidents
which bore directly on her cureer. The
women of her family played with love
as lightly as lhey did with liiimnii life,
bill there is a surpassing majesty iu
the selections of the grent Cleopatra,
that of Julius Caesar alone being
enniigh lo indicate her high intellectuality. Playwrights have naturally
preferred to deal with the passion tha
held brilliant Mare Antony enthralled
because of ils dramatic incidents nud

woman's whole life makes it plain to
those who reason ns well us rend thnl
she was the greatest genius of her
period ns well ns its most beautiful
woman, one of those shining lamps
Hint light our way iu exploring I lie
dink caverns of past ages.
In the six-reel production dealing
witli tbo must dramatic episodes of
Cleopatra's life, Mr. (laskill has nol
transcended the truth in bis conception of the character, nor has beautiful Jliss Gardner in her mnsterly
interpretation. If J have any fault
to find it is thnt Mr. Gnskill adhered
Inn closely In the Sardou play rather
than deal wilh tho formative period
of Cleopatra's girlhood. Possibly
Ihore was not room in this presentation, big ns il is, for it is crowded wilh

us luld by the tnlcnlcd director ami
sympathetic actress is perfect. Tliere
is no lapse of interest at any stage lof

I    .'.
REGIONS ot renders of modern
stories nil i hnve in Iheir minds
some mental picture they have conjured up of the dominating figure in
iheir favorite series of tales, and
great is tlieir joy when tlie author has
his stories illnstruled. For then they
know just how the author meant him
In look. When George Randolph
Clieter commenced his account of the
adventures of "Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford," he bad his Prince of
schemers depicted, anil so his face and
form are as familiar as though the
man actually lived and really carried
on his wonderful exploits in the world
of crookedness. So real ho beenme that
when Mr. Chester decided he hnd better end the series, a wail so loud and
long went up that the publisher persuaded him to commence them again,
and they are now runniny in a popular magazine.
Knowing that placed ou the stage
Mr. Wallingford would prove just ns
attractive ns he does in the pages of
the book, the malingers bad him dramatized nnd every paper was full of
accounts of the wonderful run the
play hnd in New York, and the success every rond eompany bad with
Wallingford. In London he carried
everyone off their feet and there was
a protest when the play closed, so
strong in fact that another big company is going to produce again in London.
Tho stock companies have been
anxiously wailing* for "Get-Rieh-
Quick Wallingford" to be released
lo them nml tliis week it was for tho
lirst lime, und Mr. Duvo Williams
did uot lose n moment in securing it
for immediate preseutntion at the
Princess Theatre. The expense is
great and the play demands a greatly
increased cast hut as Mr. Williams
expressed it "Nothing is too good
for Victoria." So commencing Monday night nod running ull the week
"Get-Uich-Qiiick Wallingford" will
welcome old and new friends at the
Princess Thentre.
The character of Wallingford has
been widely discused both by magazines nnd by newspaper editors, and
while many condemn his methods, all
admire the smoothness, the uniqueness of his particular style of "grafting" and lhe fact that he nearly always wins, "trimming the suckers"
so deftly lhey almost enjoy the process. Very rarely does hc fail to
enrry out nny scheme be evolves, with
the aid of his pal, Blaekie Daw, but
in one of those instances he is ut his
best, and it is one of these incidents,
with others, that the dramatizer embodied in the piny which has won a
success greater even than the book
did.
Mr. Howland will play Wallingford, and Byron Aldenn his pal,
Blaekie Daw; Miss Page his stenographer sweetheart, Ihen wife; with
Miss Fnrnsworth as tbo irrepressible
Dorothy who captures und marries
Blaekie; Dave Williams will he Bailies around whom the storm center
revolves, und Mr. Belasco is to appear
as Dempsy, lhe hotel mnn, with Miss
Rice ns Mrs. Dempsy; the other
favorites will have good roles wilh a
greatly augmented east. From nil in-
diontions nnd precedents the sign
"standing room only" will be displayed every night, so all intending
tn attend should gel their seals for
"Gol-Rich-Quick Wallingford" ihe
lirst thing next week.

"CORONATION HOSTEL"
AT 1100 Barclay Street, Vuueouver, there has lately been opened
"Queen Mary's Coronation Hostel"
for "gentlewomen born in the United
Kingdom, seeking employment in
British Columbia."
The name of the hostel indicates the
personal interest of Her Majesty in
the scheme, the main object of which
is to provide a comfortable "pied a
terre" for the clnss perilled, The
hostel will be run much on the same
lines as a ladies' club, save for the
fact that a practical training in
"household work" will be open to a
limited number of students who de-,
sire to gain a thorough knowledge of
tho methods of domestic work in different parts of the Province.
Thanks to the endowment of the
hostel hy a. well known Imperialist,
the local board of management have
been enabled to arrange a scnle of
prices which will meet the requirements of the beneficiaries. A limited
number of gentlewomen from the
Motherland wdio are already employed
in Vancouver, have been received us
"permanent boarders." Accommodation is also provided for "transients," those Indies who arrive direct
from the Motherland in search of employment, nnd those who arc already
in thc Dominion, who bring n letter
of introduction to the Managing Secretary or a member of the Board of
Management.
Tlie resident Managing Secretary is
a lady well known in British Colombia, nnd the aim of thosi ncerncd
with the nffnirs of the hostel is to aid
gentlewoman from lhe Motherland in
procuring suitable employment in the
various districts of the Province.
Thc hostel enjoys the distinction of
being the first institution in British
Colninbin in which Her Majesty is
personally interested, anil to which she
gnve the nnme, and it has no connection with any existing organization
either in Canada or lhe United Kingdom.

a very creditable affair, whatever
heights are reached. Let us I urn lo
something else, then—to ''goods"
which hnve nn "ills" fnr others attached to them. Instead of enthroning success and serving him, enthrone
the joy which Nature brings In tlie
perceiving soul, where a race of bruok-
water swirls and splashes. Hinging
steely reflections from ils eddies and
ripples nnd smooth-twisting bicepslike swell as il lifts over the pebbles
iu its course.
Thus, then, wo come face In face
with the problem ol' lhe Active versus
the  Contemplative life:  lhe  life  of
Doing nnd lhe life of Considering.
A Modern Monk.
There is amongst us a ureal expounder of the contemplative doctrine, whose books 1 always rend. Indeed, nearly everybody seems tn read
tiieinni. nnd they deserve their popularity. They are read both by those
who contemplate nnd I hose who net;
for these latter envy the author his
life of seclusion and peace, and would
like lo try for themselves a life which
lhey cun only taste at second-hand. I
limey mosl of them, however, would
soon weary of it if they did. After
lhe huslle nnd stress of their active
existence, il  would seem slow.

voyage would terminate sn swiftly,
and fewer still realized that the scarred veteran was making purt su sunn
because nf the buffetings he had received. In the last days ol' his mortal weakness it was known thai the
captain had suffered more than his
courageous nature would allow him In
admit frum the accidents that had befallen him iu his perilous calling. As
a seniiian lie was brave tu the last,
und went into purl wilh his colours
flying'.
Captain  Wnlbran  was not   an uld
nuiii: fur iu these days when Scici	
defies Time, octogenarians and even
nunngennriaiis may si ill be found al
lhe pnst uf duty, lie hail nut even
reached lhe allotted span of human
life, hul his strenuous career, continual exposure nud injuries which
wcre too insidious fur his mil nver-
robiisl frame somewhat prematurely
shortened a career uf singular usefulness and value.
Captain Walbran's life, Ihat is his
life of activity and service, after manhood wos attained, had three chapters. The first was spent on the
bridge of the British sailing vessel
plying between London and Bombay,
nf which he was appointed muster iu
1870. The second chapter commenced
in 1888, when he joined the Canadian
Pacific Navigation Company, and subsequently entered the service nf the
Canadian Government tu navigate the
ennsts nf Vancouver Island. The third
period stretches from 1S05 In the
lime of bis death, during mosl nf
•vhich lime he wns engaged in lhe
Lighthouse, Buoy and Fishery Servi
papers uf scientific and historical in-
terest. He was specially noted fnr his
intininte acquaintance with lho Indians ami their unwritten folk-lure.
Indeed, uu this subject his knowledge
was quite unique.
He was a mini of amiable disposition, honourable character, exceptional intellectual ability and conspicuous devotion lo duly. He hnd no
enemies, but hnsls of friends. His
i|iinliliealiuiis ns a mariner were uf n
very high order, anil lilted hiin fnr
any position iu the public service. Indeed, by common consent he was lhe
uue man who was always thought of
when conspicuous ability iu connection wilh marine affairs was iu demand, lie frequently sal as assessor
in marine cases, and his authority was
never questioned.
Following so soon nfter Ihe Inss of
Captain Gnudin, another beloved veteran of the Service, une cannol help
feeling thai Fate has denll somewhat

with truth be said thai he lived up to

responsive chords in many minds; for
Mr. Benson's daily post bag is
weighted increasingly wilh letters
frum strangers, and he told me noi
long ago thnt be seldom wrote less
Hum twenty-five letters u din—which
is gelling rather serious, for il curtails
his writing for print. Bui he is a
kind and sweet-souled mnn, nnd does
nol like In feel discourteous,
Mr. Benson turns bis buck on Ibe
world, preferring lo look inward al
the reflexion un lhe mirror nf his
mind, watching lo see how the world
affects him. Or, to cary the metaphor,
he watches, his own sensations, perceptions, thoughts, emotions, lhe bubbles
nf consciousness rising frnm the still
depths nf lhe iiiiinanifesled mental
levels, as au analytical chemist
watches the effervescence of n new re-
aeliiin. Porhnps uu enemy might sny,
in yet another metaphor, thai he
watches them as the farmer watches
his growing wheat and his fattening
pigs, fur lhey are his assets, his stock-
in-trade, yielding him material fur
bunks which pay, as the fanner's
stuck yields him corn and biicun. Bui
the present writer is nn enemy, and
does not sny it. Benson is not a
seeker nf money, or even of fame. He
feels the impulse to write, and believes—rightly—that be is helping
other souls by giving them thc results

Over 43 Years' Experience in the
New McLaughlin
OVER forty years of that time have been
spent in making McLaughlin carriages
and buggies.   McLaughlin carriages bore
a good name. They earned it. It was won on sheer merit.
A customer bought a McLaughlin carriage when he had the
price simply because it represented the best hc could get. He
could buy cheaper carriages, but he could not get McLaughlin
service.   Service can't be hid for nothing.    It costs money and it's
Hat here's the point! Tlie same standards that made tlie McLaughlin
carriage famous are still applied to the making of McLaughlin cars.
Each 1913 McLaughlin car is thc product of over two generations of
successful effort directed snlely alnng one line.

Burke on Empire
Reprinted Because of Its Appropriateness at This Time
(Oratory is prosp mi fire. By studying the measure "M milliner of great
speakeis, one may learn to discard
verbinre and let) the heart bent its
rhythm audibly. Nilhine was sii*'
truly al; any time which is ml by Hint

Jly hold of tin? Colonies is in lhe
close affection whicli grows from common names, from kindred blood, from
similar privileges, und equnl protection. These nre ties whicli, though
light ns nir, arc ns strong ns links of
iron. Let the Colonists always keep
the iden of their civillrights associated
with your Government; they will cling
nnd grapple to you; \ni no force under heaven will be of power to tenr
them from their allegiance. But let it
be once understood, thnt your Government mny he one thing, nnd their
privileges another; thnt these two
things mny exist without any mutual
relation—the cement is gone; the cohesion is loosened; and everything
hastens to decay nnd dissolution. As
long ns jjou have the wisdom to keep
the sovereign authority of this country
ns the saictunry of liberty, the snered
temple consecrated to our common
faith, wherever the chosen race and
sons of England worship freedom they
will turn their faces towards you. Thc
more lhey multiply, the more friends
you will have; the more ardently they
love liberty, the more perfect will be
their obedience. Shivery they enn
hnve anywhere. It is n weed thnt
grows in every soil. They mny hnve it
from Spnin, lhey mny hnve it from
Prussin. But, until you become lost to
nil feeling of your true interest nnd
your natural dignity, freedom they
enn hnve frnm none but you. This is
the commodity of price, of whicii you
hnve the monopoly. This is the true
Act of Navigation, which binds to you
the commerce of the Colonies, und
through them secures lo you the
wealth of the world. Deny them Ihis
participation of freedom, nnd you
break that sole bond, which originally
made, and must still preserve, the
unity of the Empire. Do not entertain so weak an imagination, ns thnt
your registers nnd your bonds, your
affidavits nnd your sufferances, your
dockets nnd your clearances, nre whnt
form the grent securities of your
commerce. Do not dream thnt your
letters of office, nnd your instructions
nnd your suspending clauses, are the
things that hold together the great
contexture of the mysterious whole.
These things do not make your Government. Dend instruments, passive
tools as they are, it is the spirit of
the English communion thnt gives nil
their life nnd ellicncy to them. It is
the spirit of the English Constitution,
whieli, infused through the mighty
mess, pervndes, feeds, unites, invigorates, vivifies every pnrt of the
Empire, even down to the minutest
member.
Is it not the snme virtue whicii does
everything for us here in England?
Do you imagine then, that it is the
Land Tnx Act which raises your
revenue? that it is the annual vote in
the Committee of Supply which gives
you your army? or that it is the
Mutiny Bill which inspires it with
bravery and discipline? No! surelj
no! It is the love of the people—it is
their attachment to their Government,
frum the sense uf the deep stake they
hnvo in such a glorious institution—
which gives you your army nnd your
navy, nnd infuses into both that lib-
erul obedience without which your
army would be a base rabble, anil
your navy nothing but rotten limber.
All this, I know well enough, will
sound wild ami chimerical to the pen-
I'aiie herd of those vulgar and mechanical politicians, who have no plnce
among us; a sort of people who think
that nothing exists but what is gross
and material; and who therefore, fnr
from being qualified to bo directors of
lhe great movement of Empire, are
nol lil lo turn n wheel in the machine.
But to men truly initiated and rightly
I aught, these ruling and master principles, whioh, in the opinion of such
men us I have mentioned, have no substantial existence, nre in truth every

Of Interest to Women
Latest Styles in Ladies'
Auto Attire
By Chiffon, City of Paris.
BULGARIA and the Balkans have
been blamed for many sartorial
sins. They also account to themselves
much praise—sarlorially speaking—
but they must divide honours with the
mol or for the smull lint. In motoring
il is essentiul that the head and feet
In thoroughly protected nnd kept absolutely comfortable and warm: otherwise the sport und pleasure become a
sorry pastime. Tlie very fnct of silling still for hours in a ear without
being able to move nbout will tend lo
innke the feet cold nnd 0 make the
head ache. Therefore, small, light,
wolllittiiig lints must be chosen.
Snys one chic London woman: "Of
course veils are worn with u motor
hal. hut there's a time and plnce for
everything. With Ibe present craze for
closed ears it is considered de rigueur
not tu wear a veil, und the very new-
| est lints for town wear are all designed
to he worn without veils. The great
point is the warmth and comfort of
lhe headgear worn, and ill a closed cnr
—or n partially closed one—where one
has nol the great rush of tlie wind to
contend with, a veil is merely a question uf tnste, and nut au absolute necessity. Of course, fur country motoring it is quite n different thing, nnd uu
une would think of going without n
veil, if one wishes tu snve nne's sight
and. complexion."
Motor huts, then, divide themselves
into two classes—town nnd country.
The town lints nre quite naturally
much more dressy. Any small tailored
lint is correct, nud some even hnve tint
liltle ostrich ruches nround them, but
little hnndsome cord-decorations are
the smartest. The hal, moreover, must
I he grave in color, but picked out with
gay little accessories. Leather trimmings are charming, too, hut uot the
atrocities wo ouce knew, Oh, uo, but
leather soft as any silk and equally
well toned, ll is teased info almost
any design, nud mny be glace ur suede,
according in the taste of the wearer.
Summing up, "The all important
thing is to hnve your hat a distinctly
motor lint, nud mil a mongrel that is
worn first iu lhe motor ear," snys the
Chief Buyer of .Millinery nl lhe City
I' Paris, "with motor logs, and Ihen
i lhe matinee with nurtual frocks.
Well dressed women keep a clothes
perspective always."
From our youth up we have known
traveling  bags,  but   until  the  motor
came into  everyday  usage,   we
in ver learned conservation of energy
'* splice, Snys n clever writer who bus
motored all over tlie world, or nt least
who is one of   the   "old   stagers":
Perhaps the besl   person tu design
ggage for the motorist would be an
experienced shipbuilder, because space
is as valuable as il is on sea-going
rati. Everything needs lo be taut
nnd trim, unit, iu n way, to stand
even severer tests than nn bnnrd, since
Ins! and dirt. iu addition to water, are
handicaps lu be contended with and
ivereome."
Hvery available space must lie used.

i niusl convenient affair fur exterior
[use when une wishes lu carry meals or

nilVet ease is ndinirable*, it is very flat,
ind has a front which comes down at

Hat   boxes   remain    n    difficulty.
While we wenr more small hats than
we used to do, the actual size of our
prettiest headgear is not changed. The
mere man has ben deceived by the decrease in width, but our hats and their
adornments are much longer fore and
aft—espeically aft—so that we almost
need eliptical wheel cases instead of
circular I
One of the most attractive forms of
luggage is Ihe soft morocco leather
bug whieli can he used ns a cushion
nnd so tnke up no extra space. These
cushion bug's are variously arranged,
containing a silk kimono dressing-
gown, eiderdown rug, pillow and pillow slips, folding slippers, silk dust
coat, air pillow and so forth. Another kind which is much used by
travellers iu transcontinental tours is
a leather bag with padded sides, which
when unfolded, forms a mattress. In
the case are a pillow, rug and blanket.
This portable bed forms a cushion in
the daytime. To the woman who is
sufficiently self-denying to manage
with very little luggage, a small attached ease, containing in the lid
writing materials and in the box toilet
necessities (a flat hair-brush, of
course), will strongly appeal. For use
in a closed car, motor companions are
a great boon and take up no room.
These are made of wood, are very flat,
and can bc hooked on to the side of
the automobile. They contain mirror,
address book, powder, scent, brush,
and so forth. These fittings are in various charming mediums—silver,
enamel, shell, gold and so on. For
comfort pure nnd simple on a long
journey, a foot muff which is fur-lined
nnd contains heaters is a grnct acquisition.
One might go on enumerating and
describing motor luggage, but it is
infinitely better to see the City of
Paris new Regent street, with its attractive little shops where all these
things nre sold.
There is a new overnight bag for
men' use that comes in sole leather,
pigskin or seal, lined with English
plaid canvas. The pockets to hold
toilet articles are lined with rubber.
The bag is very light and is shaped
like the Gladstone, only smaller.
Very good for the touring ear are
the ush trays and bouquet holders of
wicker with the glass insets. They
can be painted to match the lining of
the cur.
Motor flnsks of cut glass with silver
tops come with wicker bracket cases
to fasten to the side of the ear. These
tops conceal the tiny drinking cups.
A uew smoker's case that holds one
hundred cigarettes is a long, flexible
affair in soft leather whieh, when
tilled, closes air tight.
A motor cur handbag is shown in
a new model, having an adjustable
handle. It may be made any length
desired, and is carried over the arm
nr frum the shoulder.
A luncheon hamper for two that
opens out like a Victoria ease is one
of the novelties for the spring trippers. It is easily put under the seat
out uf the wny. It has the usual lit*
tings nnd room under the double covers to tuck in a few puper plates.
Adjustable parasols, in all colors,
that unscrew nnd mny be rolled into
their wicker lenther-covered handles,
may be dropped into the rail pocket
when not in use.
The latest scurf is made uf chiffon
eloth, with velvet flowers woven on
them in patterns und borders. They
are in pastel shades.
The portfolio toilet ense is mude
especially for men's use. It folds
flat. All the brushes are (hit, even
to the shaving brush, which has a
leather case of ils own.
Toilet cases of various degrees of
elaborateness form part* of the equipment nf many cars now, and they
may be had in all colors, stylos and
sizes as separate items. One of the
most populnr forms contains a mirror, memorandum book, enrd ease,
perfume bottles and clock. Making
cases uf Ibis description to order, to
suit the individual whim, is a specialty of the supply shops.
"It is the fault of motoring. The
motor ear has set a new London fash
inn and a deplorable one. A fnshioii|
of slouch lints, slack-looking suits of
tweed or flannel, comfortable and
ugly shoes with spats fur lhe cold
weather, ouffless shirts of high color,
nnd overcoats which in the dnys when
London wns well dressed, would not
huve been tolerated within the ten-
mile radius."
Thus writes a correspondent In une
nf the conservative newspapers of
London. It is the snme sort nf n protest Hint is nlwnys uttered nf lhe
pressure of Progrnss. As against this
protest, "There hns never been a lime
when the clothes were so charining
nnd so in perspective with one's activities ns today," snys Vice-President Verdier at the City of Pnris.
Paris sends us the most adorable
frocks, and  Hie  mosl   heiillhful,  she
hns ever invented. Thin, clinging,
light in weight and ulmost eorsetless
(some are, indeed, to be worn without
u corset), lhey permit the human
figure to be absolutely free and hygienic.
Now come*! along London with her
sensible motor conts to put over the
Paris gown.
Thick, worm, comfy—yet light as
the proverbial thistledown—are London motor togs, and they hive the
cachet of simplicity whieli mlways
spells elegance.
Is it any wonder, titen, that we take
exception te the London correspondent
who says Hint motor fashions nte deplorable.
Two English models nre especially
chic. They tre named nfter the smart
London localities, which is a habit of
lhe English designer. The "Grafton"
is one, while the "Waldegrnve" is
the other.
The "Grafton" is n single-breasted
wrap, buttoned up to the chin nnd
strapped on the suanis. The Eton-like
collar and straps to tighten wrists are
its only deeorutiins. It is ns chic ns
it is simple.
The "Wnldegriivc" is double-breasted, hns n wide lap over front, a deep
velvet storm collar, inner wind sleeves,
convenient and capacious pockets. It
hns n roomy skirt, which will appeal
to the woman who does her own driving. These simple coats are constructed of various materials, but tweeds
seem the most sensible for them.
The thickest makes of raline and
camel's-hair cloth are quite the newest materials for motor coats, and generally have detachable lining of soft
flannels or of fur.
Ratine is a remarkable fabric for
warmth, particularly in the very
rough, loosely woven makes, and it is
quite astonishing what an amount of
comfort nnd cosiness these conts represent. One model which n London
house is now showing is in myrtle
green ratine. It is very loose and full-
gathered in folds from n square yoke
or shoulder piece. This yoke is in one
with the sleevs. The coat opens diagonally. Great silver buttons fasten it
by means of buttoning into scarlet
cord. A grey fox colar tones in with
the silver buttons on the outside and
the grey squirrel lining. The skirt of
this coat is so voluminous that it
wraps around one like a rug. This coat
is cut very long, nnd is, of course, not
intended for walking. Yet if the
wearer has occasion to walk from
motor into theatre, or elsewhere, the
coat is so delightfully soft and light
that it can be lifted easily in the
hand.
Another London firm shows a lovely design in grey and while flannel.
It is lined throughout with very conrse
woolly white ratine, which forms big
front revers, cuffs and collar. The
arrangement of the collar is quite
unique, being formed of two long ends
and huge buckle covered with grey
cloth. The cravat ends of this collar
slip through the buckle, and can be
pulled tight; left fairly loose; adjusted high or low; around the throat just
ns the wearer prefers.
The Raglan cape-coat is again wonderfully popular. The smartest nre
those made of gay Scutch plaids ill
soft pastel tones of both light and
dark colors. Pongee, Shantung nnd
nil the Chinese weaves are the very
newest and smartest materials for
warm localities and for shopping.
Clever little three-piece suits are
made of these materials. The skirt
and short "curate" coat are overhung by n long, sleeveless eont. But
enough of motor coats! There are
motor hats, motor veils and motor
bags   to  discuss!    Yes, a world of
them I
_u
Milady motorist of today may follow the fashions as closely in her nu-
tomobilc ns iu her drawing room.
Goggles are appearing ill new forms
every dny. One comfortable form for
the womnn who does not insist on
veiling over the fnce is n pnir of spectacle goggles with folding ventilated
dust cups at lhe ouler sides to make
them lit snugly. English goggles,
with  similar wire gnuze  dust   cups,
and goggles to fit over eyeglasses and
still leave plenty of room for adjustment, are other variants in the eye
protection line.
When the "lady motorist," as the
English say, has thoroughly protected
both hands and eyes, she may go a
step further and guard her feet
against the weather. Cold would have
a hard time of it trying to penetrate
some of the.fleece-lined bootees for
women. They are made of sheepskin,
the fawn colored skin itself forming
the outside and tbe fluffy wool the
lining.
In shape they resemble the familiar
carriage boot of long association with
parties and the opera. For those who
prefer to bundle up with robes as a
protection, sensible looking mohair
plush robes, interlined, is said to make
robes of this character proof against
wind and weather, no matter how
blustery or cold.
Then, of course, there are the more
costly fur robes aplenty, in all sorts
of pelts and a wide range of shades
and thicknesses. On these the price
range is also elastic, and they may
cost anything from a very moderate
sum to a small fortune apiece.—S. F.

A W eekly Review of the Most Important Happenings in the Mining World, With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M. L M. E. Greenmll Medallist.
IX view of tlie interest now being taken in the establishment of an
iron and steel industry at rhe coast, the latest developments in
connection with tungsten—the finest steel hardener known—
will he of interest, especially as there is a possibility of commercial
tungsten ore being mined in the Province;
Last year there was a sharp decrease in tht; production of tungsten ore owing to the decrease in the demand for tool steel, in wliieh
the bulk of the tungsten produced is used, according to Frank L.
Hess, in a report on this metal just issued by thc United States Geological Survey. The production of domestic tungsten ore iu 111)1
amounted to 1,139 short tons of concentrates, carrying 60 per cent
of tungsten trioxide, valued at $407,!)8.">; in 1910 the production
amounted to 1,821 short tons, valued at $832,!»i)2.
Tungsten is used in making steels that will hold their temper
when heated, but it is most generally known as supplying the h'la-
ment of tungsten incandescent lamps. The great improvements in
drawing tungsten wire and further notable improvements in the size
of the globe of the tungsten lam]), and in other mechanical details
that add greatly to its efficiency are making it encroach upon the
carbon-filament lamp and the arc lamp, and it is rapidly driving from
the market thc tantalum lamp, which was the first good incandescent
lamp having a metallic filament. At first it did not seem possible to
drill small enough holes through the diamonds to make wire sufficiently fine for lamps of small caudle-power, but wire 0.000(1 inch in
diameter can now bc drawn in quantity. The total quantity of tungsten ore used for electric lights, however, amounts to only a few' tons
a year. _N~ew uses of tungsten, in making electric furnaces, electric
contacts, and targets for Roentgen rays have been developed, ancl tbe
last two products are being actively manufactured.
Even for purpose of war tungsten may havc its uses, and investigations are now being made with a view to its application in the
manufacture of projectiles.
The present small-arm service projectile is made of lead with a
jacket of copper nickle alloy. The principal advantage of lead over
iron, which would, of course, be cheaper, is that it bas a higher
specific gravity. Because of this fact a lead bullet with a smaller
cross section and will therefore encounter less air resistance to its
flight than will an iron bullet of the same weight, antl it will consequently give a flatter trajectory and a longer range. An iron bullet
of the same diameter as the lead bullet could, of course, lie made of
the same weight by increasing length, but this would at once necessitate giving it a higher rotation velocity to keep its axis tangential to
its flight. To impart this added rotation velocity would call for thc
expenditure o^ energy and so leave less for velocity of translation.
With the exception of tungsten, lead is the densest metal which can
be considered for this purpose, for gold is the cheapest of the other
elements having a higher specific gravity than lead.
For military purposes the softness of lead is not an advantage,
a soft-nosed bullet being tabooed in civilized warfare. For this reason
and because of the fact that it is too weak to hold the rifling, it has tn
l>e jacketed with copper nickle alloy. To take the rifling ami act as a
gas cheek, the tungsten bullet will require a copper bond or its equivalent at the base.
The hardness and high tensile strength of wrought tungsten will
give high penetrating power. The high melting point of tungsten
will prevent the projectile from being harmfully upset at the base by
the combined action of the high temperature and rapid impact due to
the combustion of the power charge.
antl quite a few of the mining companies are sold a month ahead.
lt is estimated that the February
and Murch sales will total something
more than 200,000,000 pounds. These
figures ought to be reflected in the
monthly statistics in the near future.
There is some spot copper to be had,
hut the supply is probably down to a
minimum. Exports have been large
recently and the situation is very satisfactory.
The February statistics, showing n
smaller output than that for January
while the deliveries were larger, must
be regarded as decidedly encouraging.—Boston Commercial.
A Tit-Bit for the Turk.
The recent gathering of the Peace
Delegates in London was naturally not
without its humors. At a big private
lunch con-parly arranged in their honour, toothpicks, oui of compliment lo
ihe supposed foreign custom, were
placed about the table in little silver
jars, and were further handed round
somewhere about the liqueur period.
One rather uncouth Turk, who had
never before left his native land,
waved the toothpicks away with some
impatience. Then, as though to excuse himself, he turned to his fair
neighbour.
"You will pardon' me!" he murmured in Kiting French. "1 am not
accustomed to Ihem. Already I have
eaten two; I can cal no more!"

SAMPLES from various claims in
the Otter Valley have been assayed in Vancouver and have given extremely gratifying results. The Eagle
Creek grant owned by Todd & Co..
has yielded seventy-three dollars to
the ton and forty-one dollars in other
values, principally copper. The lead
runs from twenty-six inches to live
feet in width. Todd has hired all
available pack trains from Keremoes
to Klondyke to pack the ore to Tulameen during the coming summer.
Kelly Creek, where claims were staked last summer hy a number of Spokane business men is very busy, gangs
havc worked all winter with splendid
resnlts. Some of lhe assays have
reached eighty dollars iu gold. The
Boar Creek property, owned by
Thymic, Todd & Co., is bonded to Mr.
E. Duncan of Vancouver, who refused
an offer of $85,000 from English capitalists recently. There are nine claims
along this granite and the ledge is

MR. Amos Godfrey has returned
to Telkwa from the Copper

seams of coal discovered on the property, upon which there have heen nearly fifteen hundred feet of tunnel work
done. Thc largest of these seams
shows eight feet of good, clean coal,

these figures showed there to be 12,-

dip whicii Hie seam makes at thc present depth, these figures would ho
doubled, giving the enormous tonnage
of 15,923,200 Ions to the section, and
from careful prospecting, this seam
is known to underlie ten sections.
Above this large deposit is another
good, workable seam five feet in

The Alpine Club Banquet
MOUNTAINEERS arc a pleasant
lot. Their chief delight in life
is in the hig outdoors, and the large
spaces; and as a result their thoughts
ure correspondingly large, frank, and
vigorous** It is usually noticed, too,
liml people who lind their greatest
joy in woods and mountains and
st renins nre a pretty true, dependable
sort. This is largely characteristic
I! nuiiinliiineers.
- Reflections of the above character
lucre  predominant   iu the observer's
Jiind us he enjoyed the delightful
annual banquet uf the Victorin Sec-
lion, Alpine Chili of Canada, held
Thursday before lust, ul the Empress
Hotel in the new dining-rooms. The
lung lines of snowy tables, surrounded
by a happy und healthy-looking gathering ut men and women whuse faces
allowed their fondness tor out-of-door
life, were a pleasing* sight. The bill—
of-fare, which was delicious, divided
Honors with lhe subject of past anil
future climbs ns a subject of absorh-
— ..j. discussion. Mr. W. W. Foster,
Deputy Minister of Public Works,
ind president of the locul section,
mule as able n chairman here as he
loos ut tlie good roads convent inns,
vhich is saying a great deni. He wns
upporteil by the Hun. Dr. Young,
ilinisler uf Education; Mr. C. M.
Vuoil, Jl.l'.l'. for Alberni, and R. H.
'Iiuinson. Strathcona Park's energetic
ngineer, as well ns Miss Juan Molli-
unil lir. A. 0. Wheeler, Director
It' lhe Alpine Club, nml one uf lhe
ist enthusiastic mountaineers that
ver grasped mi alpenstock. A de-
ighlfiil programme uf suugs was
;iven during the evening hy Miss Mol-
ison, Mrs. Cameron, Miss Bruce and
dr. Westmoreland, the accompanist
icing Mrs. A. Lawder. The menu
ards were perhaps llic hamlsoiucsl
ml must original ever seen in Vienna, being n reproduction uf the ns-
ent of Mt. Sir Donald  in  tlie  Sel-
iirks hy Messrs. lliihcr und Sulzer in
81)0. The various articles of refresh-
lent were scattered along I lie route in
io order ill whicii lhey wcre served,
'redil for the clever iden nnd for its
eat execution in wnter-color in bhu ■
riut cues tu Mr. I'lisler nud Mrs. (!.
'. Napier respectively.
_ The first toast of the evening t'ul-
|iwim: ilint of "The King," was Hull
'The Province of British Culiim-
!ia," J. G. C. Wuod in proposing
hich referred to (he bounties of
ritish Columbia's scenery, which, he
lid. surpassed those of uny olher
rovince iu the Dominion.
(Dr. Young, in responding lu llic
inst, said Ihul all hough nut actually
member of the club, ho considered
int he had long ago fully qualified
n* this through his tours nbout the
ountains in llic various purls of flic
rovince. The remark made hy Mr.
'end thut the province wus coming
lu ils own was only partly true; a
ihinet minister's work today was no
necure; the country wns forging
lend at un incredible pace, nnd lhe
  i,t  development  wns mil  being
infilled to uny one section ur lu nny
ie part of the country's resources.
W. W. Foster, in Hie absence of Mr.
Morkle, proposed the tonsl "The Alpine Club of Canada," paying n tribute uf praise to the energy the director, Mr. Wheeler, to whom so much
of the success und esprit de corps of
the organization liad been due. The
club was doing much lo capitalize the
scenery of the country. This scenery
should be mude revenue-producing,
nnd it wus one of the objects uf the
Alpine Club lu emphasize Hint fuel.
Director A. 0. Wheeler gnve uu interesting resume of the work done
during the past year hy tlle club,
speaking wilh llle sincerity uf a true
lover of lhe hills uf the grent beauty
of the Canadian mountains, lu reviewing lhe position of lhe club, Mr.
Wheeler culled attention tu Hie steady
growth in membership, which now
stood nl nearly 8011, one of the len
honorary members of the club being
Dr. Chnrles Wnleult, secretary uf the
Smithsonian Insliliile, recently elected
lo lill lhe vacancy caused hy the death
ol' the lute Edward Whymper. Sympathetic reference wns made tu the
dentil during lhe past year of Dr.
Arthur Benson nnd Lisler Pim, both
of Dublin, who were guests ut the
.1009 camp at Lake O'Hara. The Banff
Club house was referred to ns being*
llic strongest visible evidence of Hie
Alpine (.'lull uf Canada, und would
have tu he maintained whether it paid
ur nol. Arrangements were being
mnde fur the building uf n new dining-room to replace the tent-house addition, nud Iwo more tenthouses
would be added lo the accommodation there. Tlie hite Edward Whymper had lefl a legacy of fifty pounds,
wilh which il was proposed tu erect a
memorial in Ihe form ot:' a drinking
fountain ut the Banff house.
Afier reviewing lhe camp work nt
Vermilion Pnss nud Strathcona Pnrk
ciinips lnsl summer, Mr. Wheeler prn-
cccded to outline the 1913 programme.
The Banff club house would he opened
on June 15, und would tic kept open
until llic middle of September. A new
departure would he inaugurated in the
holding of two camps nl widely distant points, one of which would be nt
Lnke O'Hara Valley, frum July 15 lo
July 2(i. and lhe other af Robson Pnss
from July 28 lu Aug. I). Both sites
were magnificent nml would afford
some splendid climbs.
Mr. R. 11. Thomson spoke delightfully on llic work iu Strathcona Park,
illustrating his remarks with typically
'' Thomsunian anecdotes.
Other toasls during the evening included Hint of "Our lluesls ami the
Ladies." proposed by Mr. Mitchell,
who spoke iippreciulely of lhe presence of Mrs. Henshaw, better known
us a botanist, perhaps, than us an
alpinist.
Mrs. Henshaw, who was greeted
wilh hearty applause, responded, expressing her appreciation of the hospitality extended tu her ns one of llic
guests.
The limil toast of Hie evening wns

HON. Martin Burrell, Minister of
Agriculture, bus made arrangements fur the appointment uf E. II.
Strickland, of Hertford, England, to
make uu investigation into a serious
outbreak of cut-worms in Southern
Alberta which lias proved very dis-
astruiis (luring tlle past few years.
Mr. Strickland was trained at the
Agricultural College Wye, Kent, under Prof. F. V. Theobald, the foremost economic entomologist in England. In 1010 he was one of the two
men selecfed by the Colonial Office
to take two years' training in the
United Stntes in entomological method. He accordingly spent two years
in the United States under the direction nf Dr. Howard, chief entomologist
of the United Stntes Department of
Agriculture, nnd Dr. Wheeler, Professor of Entomology, Harvard University, both of whom speak most
highly of his ability. He is entering
lhe Canadian Government service us
entomologist, nnd his first work will
he this investigation.
During flic summer of 1011 there
were numerous reports uf widespread
and serious injury lo grain, root and
other crops by cutworms in Southern
Alberta. Lust summer the serious
nature of the outbreak wus increased
and the infested area was greater. A
preliminary investigation showed thai
from 30,000 to 40,000 acres of grain,
exclusive of garden ami rout crops,
had been actually destroyed by cutworms, It was found that it wns a
new and hitherto undiscovered cutworm pest whicii could not  bc con
I rolled by ordinary methods. Accordingly, il was decided tu make n
thorough investigation, and Mr.
Strickland lins been engaged for the
purpose.
THE Grand Trunk Pacific railway
has announced the locution of its
divisional puint in the Bulkley valley.
This new town, which will be given
the name nf "Smithers," after the
chairman uf tlie Grand Trunk board,
will be situated nine miles west of
the present settlements nf Aldermere
und Telkwn. Iu his official announcement, G. U. Ryley, G. T. P. land commissioner, says :—
"The Board of Railway Commissioners in Ottuwa has approved of
the station site of Smithers, the second divisional point east of Prince
Rupert, Mile 226.5, Lot 5289, Range
5, Coast District, un the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, about nine
miles wesl uf Telkwa and Aldermere.
The townsite will be for sale in August, 1913. It is expected that the plan
of the townsite and the prices of the
lots will be ready for distribution
about Julyl."
Speaking of this new divisional
point, Hie Vancouver News-Advertiser of recent date, says:
"Smithers," the Grand Trunk divisional point between Prince Rupert and Fort George, is in the centre of the Bulkley vnlley, whicii is
rapidly coming to Hie front as a
mixed funning and dairying country.
In the Hudson's Buy, Telkwa .and
Babine Mountains many rich mineral
discoveries have been made. Guid,
silver and copper have already been
found, und on many of the claims development work is being done. A
large area of conl hind lies within a
few niiles of the townsite. There is
also a large urea of merchantable
limber within a short distance. In
Hie mountain streams on flic out*
skirts of the valley there are splendid waterpowcrs that will be harnessed as towns open up alnng the
Grand Trunk Pacilic for light, power,
etc.
It is expected Hint the railway will
reach Smithers early in Hie slimmer.
Tliere is a plentiful supply of good
water all the year around. There is
sufficient rainfall during the growing
season lu dn awny witli any necessity for irrigation, The winter climate has been compared lo Hint of
Ontario and New England, The snowfall is usually about IS tu 24 inches.
Tn the surrounding country game
uf all kinds is plentiful. There ure
black, brown and grizzly bear, mouse,
caribou, duck. etc.
Vernon has opened its new power
house, with a demonstration by several hundred citizens. Interest centered around the new Diesel oil engine, which has just been installed,
and the operation uf which will en-
uble the city tu give its citizens one
nf the lowest lighting nrtes and power
rates in British Columbia. The oil
plant will be operated continuously,
the steam plant being used as an
auxiliary during the hours when the
load is heaviest, until u second unit
of nil can be installed,

The directors of the International
Conl & Coke Company have declared
a special dividend uf one per cent a
shnre on the issued capitalization of
3,000,000 shares, making $30,000 and
bringing the total profit disbursements to date to $851,000, of whicii
$180,000 was paid in 1910 nnd $135,-
000 in 1011.
Fur a number of years prior to
August, 1911, when payments were
suspended, the International Coal &
Coke Co. paid regular quarterly dividends of P/_ cents a share, amounting to $45,000, but labor troubles in
1911 resulted in a material curtailment of production, necessitating the
abolition of dividends. Conditions at
mines, now, however, are eminently
satisfactory, according to Secretary
Graves, and tliere is a probability of
regular disbursements being resumed,
although this has not yet been decided
upon hy the directors. The daily
output of the mines nt present is approximately 2,500 tons.
NEW Westminster's hank clenr-
ings for the month of March
totalled $2,190,609, exceeding the

the Province and that the matter was
receiving attention from the authorities in the consideration at this time
uf the question of "better terms" advanced hy the Provincial Government.
The position uf superintendent of
dredges, which has heen vacant since
thc resignation of Mr. H. A. Bayfield,
Ims now been filled by Air. John L.
Nelson. Mr. Nelson is understood to
have had considerable experience in
contracts and dredging in the Enst.
The Royal Bank of Canada architects are busy on the plans fnr a new
structure tu he erected un the Columbia Street property purchased by the

fional street improvements by-laws involving the expenditure of $200,000
and waterworks extension requiring

If 1 hud been n Heathen,
I'd have crowned Neoera's curls,
And filled my life with lovo affairs.
My house with dancing girls;
Hut Higgins is a Heathen,
And to lecture rooms is forced,
Where bis aunts, who ure not married.
Demand to be divorced.
If Ihiid been a Heathen,
I'd have sent my armies forth,
And dragged behind my chariots
The Chieftains of the North.
But Higgins is a Heathen,
And he drives the dreary quill,
To lend the poor that funny cash
That makes Ihem poorer still.
If I had been a Heathen,
I'd have piled my pyre on high,
And in a great red whirlwind
Gone roaring to the sky;
But Higgins is u Heathen
And a richer man than I;
And they put him in an oven
Just as if he were a pie.
Now who Ihat runs can read it,
The riddle that I write,
Of why this poor old sinner,
Should sin without delight—1
But I, I cannot read it
(Although I run nnd run),
Of them that do not have the faith,
And will not hnve the fun.
From the New Witness.
THE anticipated large salmon
catch this season is resulting in
considerable activity on the part of
the eanuerymen. In addition to the
usual annual overhauling, a large
number of canneries which have not
been operating for the past four years
nre now being made ready for business. The Dominion Government is
taking time by the forelock and building n new fishing cruiser at the Westminster Marine railway dock. This
boat will have a length of eighty-two
feet and a beam of fourteen feet.
On the same ways a tug of eighty feet
long is being built for Captain Mayers of New Westminster, while the
Star Ship yards are also doing considerable work.
At Coquitlam the keel has been
laid at the Coquitlam Shipbuilding
company's ynrds for a steamer which
will hnve nn over all length of 237
feet and n beam of forty-three feet
which when completed will have a capacity of 1,500,000 feet of lumber.
Industrial Activity
The present comporative dullness
in fhe business world does not appear to be effecting New Westminster
industrial developments to any extent; on lhe contrary reports for the
coining season from all manufacturing establishments have a most optimistic tone and tliere are few tbat
are not at the present time employed
to tlieir full capacity and the work in
sight for the summer season in many
cases will entail an enlargement of
Iheir establishments.
