JBING JOHN BULL
week ago The Week published the dels of the seizure of a large quantity of
Ial stores supposed to have been stolen
In the naval yard or ships at Esquimalt.
Stated that these goods had been taken
Session of by the Customs Department
were still in the Customs warehouse,
seizure had been made ten days previ-
Jjy, but no definite steps had been taken
ler by the Customs authorities or by the
|ce.   All the facts were in possession
|he Colonist and the Times, but they
Ised to publish them.   In consequence
|he publicity given to the matter by
Week the Customs authorities, in-
Icted from Ottawa by wire, took action
"Monday last and fined John Day and
[(Victoria Machinery Company $1,000
for  trading in  dutiable goods  on
\_h the duty had not been paid.   Mon-
| passed, and still neither the Colonist
(the Times made any reference to the
ler, although by this time it had been
jdicated upon in one court, at least;
singular   to  relate,   the .Vancouver
It-Advertiser of Tuesday morning coned a paragraph stating that the fines
Tred'to had been inflicted.   The para-
Ih was furnished by the member of the
prist staff who is the correspondent of
Vancouver   News-Advertiser.     O n
Inesday   both   Colonist   and   Times
tgled the information through in a
paragraph,  the  former  hiding  it
lig the local items.   It might be inter-
but probably unprofitable to specu-
as to why neither paper said a word
this serious matter for nearly a fort-
I, and not then until it had received
Icity from  an outside paper.    But
is another phase of the question of
|iore interest to the public, and that is,
are the police going to do about it.
les not seem that any person, however
ly placed, has a right to compromise
Insaction such as this.   It'is an open
that the officers of the navy are an-
to have the matter probed to the bot-
[but that political influence has been
lin the first instance to delay proceed-
Ithen to prevent the Customs authori-
Irom taking action, and later to stifle
I enquiry.   If, as is openly stated at
[malt, the plundering of Government
has been systematically carried on
■[any years and both the the thieves
phe receivers  are known, on what
Iple are the guilty parties to be alto escape under some private ar-
[nent, hatched in Victoria and en-
at Ottawa, which paralyses the ef-
lof the Customs and Police Depart-
J?    These are the questions which
I are asking themselves.   It is certain
' the stolen property belonged to pri-
|parties  someone would  have  been
up long ago.   As the goods were
J in the Esquimalt district the matter
Ivithin the jurisdiction of the Provin-
lolice, and it is to be hoped that the
■Government will see that they do
fluty.   There is no fear about this if
Ire given a free hand.
PAVING CONTRACT
I Victoria City Council, no doubt
lhe best intentions, has awarded the
let for the paving of thirty miles of
lia streets to the Canadian Mineral
|r Company. In doing so it has com-
an illegality which may or may not
lie-died. The Week is not concerned
lhe illegality; it is far more inter-
In the unfairness of the transaction,
li the injustice which it works on
Iflrms. Incidentally, it may be able
Brest the public a little later on in
eans by which this wealthy Toronto
[ny was able to beat all competitors
I' the field. The only justification
Irth by the Council is that, taken in
gregate, the tenders of the Canadian
Mineral Rubber Company were lower
than those of any other competitor. This
is true, but it is also true that at least two
other competitors put in lower tenders for
a large section of the work, and it will
take a good deal of explaining to convince
property owners that they should pay
many thousands of dollars on particular
streets in order to ensure a monopoly for
one favored company. There are nineteen streets, mostly in the neighbourhood-
of the Eairfield estate, for every one of
which the Calgary Paving Company tendered lower than the Canadian Mineral
Kubber Company. Without going into
details the following figures prove this
contention. On the nineteen streets in
question the total of the Canadian Mineral
Kubber Company's tender was $178^902
and that of the Calgary Paving Company
$174,088. To have given the contract to
the latter would hafe saved the City and
the property owners $4,814. This would
only have dem'ived the successful tenderer
of about one-sixth of the work. It would
have saved nearly $5,000; it would have
avoided what most people ob-'ect -to—a
monopoly, and would have recognised the
excellent work already done in the city by
the Worswick Paving Company, because
the Calgary and Worswick are under the
same management and work on the same
system. There are at least three parties
interested in an equitable settlement of
this matter—the unsuccessful tenderer
who actually put in the lowest price, the
property owners, and the citizens. It is
still the duty of the Council to satisfy all
these parties why they propose to pay
$5,000 more for the work on nineteen
streets than they need have done. In arriving at a conclusion on this point, it may
be as well to include an enquiry as to why
the Colonist found it necessary on this
occasion to establish a precedent in directing the City Council to violate all principles of justice and fairness and to give
the contract to one big firm, which has succeeded in crowding all competitors out of
the field. It will be time enough to enquire into the means why this was done
when these questions have been satisfactorily answered.
THE OVER-SEAS CLUB
. Attention is called to the rapid development of the Over-Seas Club, and incidentally to the growth of the Victoria branch.
The movement which started last summer
has resulted up to date in the formation of
2,000 branches with more than 30,000
members. The Victoria branch has 215
members. It is not necessary to recapitulate the objects of this world-wide organization; in the main they are to develop
British sentiment. The movement is in
its infancy, but it has already done incalculable good in establishing throughout
the Empire a net-work of agencies for
"helping one another" and helping everything British. It is astonishing to notice
how many scores of communications reach
the secretary of the Victoria branch, most
of them being enquiries as to the conditions of life and business in British Columbia ancl the opportunities offered to intending settlers. The replies Avhich have
been furnished have resulted in bringing
to the Province English immigrants of the
best type, so that in this direction the
Over-Seas Club is doing practical and valuable work. It will, however, make its
mark in the wider arena of public opinion,
and cannot fail to exert a wholesome influence in sustaining the best ideals of the
race, and in promoting and strengthening
loyalty to the British throne. The view of
The Week is that the Victoria branch instead of numbering 200 should number at
least 1,000, and if the objects of the Club
were thoroughly understood this consummation would be reached in a very short
time.   An appeal is hereby made to all
who sympathise with the mo-
send in their names to the local secretary,
who will furnish all information and "secure their enrolment as members. There
is no fee for joining the central organization, but a nominal fee of a dollar is required for the necessary expenses of the
local branch.
SIR WILFRID WILL GO
Rarely has a statesrhan made a worse
tactical blunder than.that into,which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier was led when he declared
that he would not attend the Imperial
Conference or the Coronation Celebration
unless the Reciprocity Bill were first put
through the House. It is only charitable
to assume that when Sir Wilfrid made
the famous .declaration he was overwrought as a result of the strenuous session now drawing to a close. It would
hardly be fair to assume that the threat
was in the nature of a bluff, although from
any other man it would have deserved
that designation. It did not take Sir Wilfrid long to discover that he had placed
himself in an untenable position by threatening to neglect Imperial interests for the
sake of a commercial treaty. Eor once
Mr. Borden did the right thing, and did
it quickly, by offering to vote supply; this
was an offer which it was impossible for
Sir Wilfrid to refuse without making bad
worse, so he climbed down as gracefully as
he could and announced his intention of
sailing to England on the 12th. inst.
Everyone will be gratified to know that
the most eloquent and commanding of all
the Over-Seas representatives will thus
take his rightful place at the Imperial
Conference, and no one will doubt that he
will render far more valuable service there
than if he had remained at home to force
on an unwilling people a trade agreement
for which they have no liking and which is
losing ground steadily every day. It is
not often safe to prophesy in matters political, but The Week will be greatly surprised if Sir Wilfrid does not have his
eyes opened whilst in England as to the
unpopularity and the anti-Imperial aspects of the Reciprocity Agreement. Indeed, far more surprising things have happened than its abandonment.
gnised scale of wages. The employment of inferior labour is largely responsible for jerry-building; it may be cheap;
it is decidedly nasty. Least of all can it
be urged as an argument against the payment of .a fair wage to the skilled carpenter.       	
A SENSATIONAL RACE
Last week Mr. J. B. Perry made a sensational race against time, and beat the railway record from Duncan to Victoria by
half-an-hour. Probably this sensational
performance will serve two purposes. It
will demonstrate the excellence of the Mill
Bay Road and the superiority of the Packard automobile. It should also arouse the
Provincial authorities to the necessity for
establishing some regulation to prevent the
Mill Bay Road from becoming a racetrack.' The danger is that some other motorist thirsting for fame may try to emulate
Mr. Perry's example, and it would not
take many such performances to constitute
the finest civic road in the West a veritable
shambles. Within a fortnight two parties
of joy-riders have had the narrowest possible escape of a terrible catastrophe. The
Week anticipates that this new road will
become the resort of every tourist visiting
Victoria who is able to own or hire a motor
car. It was designed mainly for this purpose ; it is therefore the duty of the authorities to see that the public are protected
from the vagaries of reckless drivers. The
view, of The Week is that there should be
a maximum speed on this whole length of'
road, and that the maximum should not be
higher than fifteen miles an hour. Such
a provision is as necessary for motorists as
for foot passengers or those who drive
horses, and it cannot be too promptly
adopted or too rigorously enforced.
THE CARPENTERS' STRIKE
The carpenters working in the City of
Victoria are on strike for an increase of
wages from $4.00 to $4.50 a day. That
the advance will have to be granted there
can be no doubt, both because the conditions in Victoria demand it and because
a similar strike in Vancouver has resulted
in favour of the men. This is Victoria's
boom time. Real estate and building are
the two features of the boom. Never has
the development of the city been more
widely heralded, and never have rosier anticipations for the future been indulged
in. Under these circumstances the contractors cannot expect to keep wages at the
present level. They will have to follow
suit with the builders of other cities not
only because this is a time of prosperity,
but because the cost of living has risen so
much that a skilled artisan, whose work
does not by any means extend over twelve
months in the year, is inadequately remunerated at $4.00 a day. At the time of
going to press there are fewer than 40
carpenters at work in the city and over 500
on strike. This is regrettable, and the responsibility for holding up necessary
building construction at a critical time
must be laid upon the shoulders of the
employers who fail to recognise 'the reasonable requirements of the moment. It is
no answer to say that many so-called carpenters are not skilled workmen. If contractors employ unskilled workmen to do
skilled work that is their own look-out.
Skilled labour has a right to protection,
aud the only protection it can have is a
THE LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT
The attention of readers of The Week
is called to a letter from Mr. A. W.
Bridgman which appears in this issue.
Mr. Bridgman expresses himself somewhat forcibly, but there are few people
who will not think that under the circumstances he is justified. Waiving the
question of legality there can be no
doubt that the incarceration of the
Hindu has a very serious aspect and one
which grows in importance as it is considered. It is not merely the incident itself
which is important, but the fact that the
police authorities ruled it to be justifiable,
and that the local papers suppressed all
reference to it. Here is a combination
which might result in depriving any man
of his liberty under circumstances which
would leave no room for redress. The
AVeek has no desire to pursue the subject
further at the present time, but the citizens
of Victoria who believe in British fairplay cannot too closely watch, or too
jealously guard, the interests of those who
are least able to protect themselves.
UNION LABOUR
The Chief Justice has rendered an important decision in Vancouver. It is that
non-union labour may not be employed in
building the Labour Union Temple. This
would appear to be a sound decision, and
one which the Norton-Griffiths Company
were ill-advised in forcing. His Lordship
pointed out that the Unions stood for a
principle, that is, the non-employment of
non-union labour, and as;they owned the
Labour Temple they had a right to say
what class of labour should be employed
in its construction. The 'significance of
the attitude assumed by the Norton-Griffiths Company lies in the fact that having
made a contract they sought to resist an
increase of wages by employing non-union
labour. When they have had a little more
experience in this country they will find
that it is too late in the day to adopt such
tactics; the game is played out. Labour*
is a solidarity, even if it is not all Union. m
THE WEEK; SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1911
^r
There would appear to be some
kind of mix-up in the head of the
. Clerk of the Weather at the time of
writing. All through April, the
month with which we associate the
showery season, we had brilliant sunshine; in fact I believe it is true that
throughout the whole month there
was only one day's rain. And now
May has arrived; May, the month of
flowers and sunny skies, and so faf it
has been cloudy with the rain threatening but never coming. We need
rain badly enough, but the said Clerk
41 seems unable to make up Bis mind as
to whether we shall have it or not,
so compromises on clouds.
* *   *
But it is hard to realise that we
have really come round to May again
so soon. There is nothing in this
country to bring the fact home to us
as there is in England. I grant you
that it is rather a nuisance to have a
crowd of more or less clean school
children trotting up to the door with
a dilapidated Maypole, around which
they jump, for they can rarely be said
to dance, whilst screaming out rhymes
appropriate to the date. But still it
is a survival of the "good old days"
and there is no person in the world
who clings more closely to time-honoured customs than does the Englishman. There was a time when
May-day was one of the big festivals
* of the year and the May-pole one of
the most honoured insignia of pageantry. But times change and in a
new country we can hardly expect'to
see the survival of what after all is
merely a matter of sentiment.
* *   *
But there is one point in connection
with this First of May which I should
like to bring before my readers' attention, and that is that however
much we may disdain to recall our
childhood and to trip with song and
dance around a decorated stick, we
cannot fail to realise that each Mayday heralds the near approach of
summer,, and that each summer finds
the Inner Harbour of Victoria in a
more insanitary condition. I was appalled at the stench which greeted my
nostrils on Tuesday morning last as
I was crossing the Causeway when
, the tide was at its lowest. Perhaps
it is too much to expect to have the
harbour properly cleansed. I don't
even know whether such a thing
would be possible in these days.
Doubtless in the days of yore an Eu-
rystheus would have fbund a Heracles to undertake the job after he
had had a little practice on the Augean stables. But if we cannot hope
for positive aid in this respect we
surely have the right to claim some
negative help. I am told that it is
the practice of all the steamers which
use thc Inner Harbour to wait until
they arc safely anchored and then to
throw out all their garbage. On
Monday last a local boat was observed discharging a mixed cargo of
slops, cans, old clothes and paper onto the placid face of the waters. This
one, instance was particularly noted
and retailed to me, but my informant
went on to say that all the boats are
in the habit of doing the same thing.
Now I believe that it is an offence
for anyone to throw garbage into the
sea within a certain distance from the
shoreline. I have been told that if I
load garbage onto a small boat I have
to go well outside a defined limit before I may discharge it. Why then
arc the steamers allowed to bring
their garbage from the open sea into
an enclosed harbour and there deposit it?
* *   *
I don't suppose for a minute that
they arc entitled to do so, but the
matter has never received public attention and as a thing like this is everybody's business, of course there is nobody who considers it as lying within
his own special province. Consequently, no steps havc been taken to
prevent it. I propose that the City
, Solicitor first look up his authorities
and see what rights vessels have in
this respect, and that the City Engineer has his say in the matter also,
and that they then repor.t to the Mayor and Council, and that the latter
then communicate with the Chief of
Police. I should very much like to
see a squad of captains in the dock on
a charge of creating a public nuisance. I have seen a good many harbors during my short stay. on this
planet, but I never remember seeing
one which can compare with that of
Victoria for filth, odour and general
untidiness. The fact that the Empress Laundry sewer empties into the
harbour just under the north ,end of
the Causeway does not help to improve the colour of the water, though
there may be nothing absolutely insanitary in such an arrangement.
* *   *
There is only one advantage which
this state of the harbour possesses,
and that is that when the tide is low
it is impossible to detect the aroma
arising from the Chemical Works; but
there are some cures which are worse
than the disease they dissipate, and
this is a case iu point. When all is
said and done, though the Chemical
Works give out an offensive odour,
there is nothing unwholesome in
it. On the contrary I know that sulphur is an excellent thing to inhale
in cases of bronchitis and asthma,
and it is a fact that the engine-drivers in the underground railways of
London were never known to suffer
from the latter disease owing to their
continued existence in a gaseous and
smoky atmosphere. It cannot be argued that there is anything in favour
of the fumes arising from the Inner
Harbour. Year by year we hear
more and read more about infection,
spread of disease, curses of bad sanitation, advances in scientific knowledge and all.the rest of it, and year
by year we see our harbour growing
fouler and fouler. And there is
small-pox in Ottawa. Think how disease would flourish in, Victoria if it
once got a foothold! Let us make
some start in the right direction by
rigidly prohibiting vessels from making this evil worse than it naturally is.
* *   *
It will be good news to the residents , in Foul Bay and vicinity to
know that the B. C. E. R. are putting
in another switch on May Street just
this side of Dallas Road. There have
been many complaints of late as to
the waiting which has to be endured
at the corner of May and Cook on
the outward journey owing to the
fact that there is no possibility of
two cars passing each other further
along. As soon as the work now in
progress at the corner of Yates and
Government is finished the track
along May Street will be doubled and
it is anticipated that thereafter the
dwellers in Foul Bay will have a
straight fifteen minute service. Rome
was not built in a day and so many
improvements and extensions have
been made by the Electric Railway
that it is not fair to register a "kick"
at unavoidable delays, but one is quite
in or ler in congratulating the company on seeing what is wrong and
going ahead as soon as possible to
effect a remedy.
* *   *
One usually regards schoolmasters as persons with an unlimited capacity for making rules and regulations. It therefore comes as a surprise to read that the present Dean
of Winchester has been entrusted
with the task of editing the Ten Com-1
mandments with a view to an abridgement of the same. The Very Reverend William Mordaunt Furneaux
was for a long time head-master of
Repton and I remember that he was
a pretty good hand at making commandments for the school. There
may be other 0. R.'s in the Province
who read The Week and who wcre
at Repton during Dean Furneaux'
regime, so I include this paragraph
for their edification.

It is a pity that we are not a wealthy enough community to preserve
the fine open space at present in evidence on Government Street as a public square with fountains and other
picturesque decorations. Of course a
valuable business site would be lost
and no real benefit would accrue to
anybody, but think how delightful it
would be to have a little public space
right in the heart of the city. It
would be a luxury and I know that
we have no time for luxuries in the
West. I don't suppose anybody but
a Lounger would ever think of such
a thing in these days of rapid development. And talking about rapid development, who would have thought
two years ago that any Victoria theatre would ever have been able to reproduce on a Friday a cinematographic picture taken oh the previous
Wednesday. Yet this was done. Mr.
A. H. Maynard of Pandora Street
was the enterprising photographer
and the management of the Crystal
Theatre showed the finished product,
a view of the Fire Brigade going into
action.   Pretty good, eh, for Victoria?
I have often thought that I should
like to enter politics, but now I am
certain that I have missed my vocation. I have just seen the new automobile ordered for the Provincial
Government from the Western Motor
& Supply Company, and it certainly
is a beauty. It is the largest Mc-
Laughlin-Buick car made, a fifty-
horse-power, eight passenger machine
with all the very latest and best improvements attached. The colour
scheme is in light grey. The car arrived in Victoria on Monday last and
on the following day the Minister of
Works, thc Hon. Thos. Taylor, the
Provincial Secretary, the Hon Dr.
Young and the Deputy Minister of
Works, Mr. W. W. Foster went for a
trial spin on the Mill Bay Road.
They returned enthusiastic in their
praise for the new automobile after
a most successful run. It is rumoured
that in the absence of the Attorney-
General the chauffeur in charge allowed the car to travel somewhat in
advance of the prescribed speed
limit, but no definite information as
to that has been allowed to leak out.
In securing a car of this type for the
Government the Western Motor &
Supply Company have done a good
thing for themselves as well as for'
the credit of thc Province.

Roosevelt's "Little Movement"
That "every little movement has a meaning of its own'" was
well illustrated when the then President played one of his
practical jokes on his sons.
They frequently played tricks upon each other, and the fathet
was nowhere behind.
One day, while in the bathroom at the White House, whet
washing his hands, Roosevelt heard footsteps coming along th<
passage in a seemingly stealthy manner.
"Ah," said he to himself, "these boys are at their tricks again
I'll be even with them this time!"
Having soaked a large towel in water, he stood quietly behini
the door awaiting events.
When someone opened the door of the bathroom, without
moment's  hesitation,   Roosevelt  flung the  wet  towel  over  th
new-comer's head, calling out as he did so, "I've got you now!"
To his utter dismay, however, he discovered that the visito
was not one of his sons, but the plumber, who was a bit dismaye<
at the President's "little movement."
'Tis well to remember when you order champagne that ever-
little capsule has a meaning of its own.
Remember that the rose-colored capsule found only upoi
the genuine "Extra Dry" of G. H. Mumm & Co. means that thj
bottle, .be it a quart, pint or split, contains the very purest anj
best champagne procurable.

amateurs. Mrs. Oscar McMicking
rendered! Sydney Homer's version of
"Break, Break, Break." Both these
ladies assisted in the first part of the
programme. lit the second, Mrs. Gideon Hicks contributed several vocal
solos and Miss Beck and Mr. Wad ■
dington sang Smart's "When the
Wind Bloweth in From the Sea," as
a duet. Throughout the evening, except in the case of Mrs. Hicks, Mrs
A. J. Gibson fulfilled the important
position of accompanist.
Lew Dockstader
Even in this refined age all the
world loves a circus and I think it is
just as safe to venture the opinion
that all thc world loves a Minstrel
Show. Of the latter Dockstader's is
easily the best on the road. No one
could expect a Minstrel Show to do
much more than keep an audience in
a constant state of laughter, and this
was the effect of the very excellent
one-act play but it does not afford
much scope for talent. Miss Carita
Dal fills the bill with a singing and
dancing act.
Frederick Warde
Mr. Frederick Warde and Company
gave a representation of Shakespeare's Julius' Caesar on Thursday
night at the Victoria Theatre. Mr,
Warde himself is a first-class elocutionist and an experienced actor, but
he was always more notable for his
elocution than for his acting. About
the latter there is a certain artificiality and his movements especially
are apt to become mechanical. But
for this he would years ago have
developed into a star, instead of
drifting from the stage to the platform. Since he left the London
boards he has travelled far and attained a certain celebrity as a reader
of Shakespeare, and in my opinion
that is where he found his "metier."
His rendering of the character of
Brutus was not without its good
points, but it revealed all the weaknesses    of    Mr.    Warde's    methods,
The management are to be congratulated on the continued engagement
of Miss England who sings the songs.
Miss England has a superior contralto voice which she uses well, and
she is fortunate enough not to be
handicapped by having to sing the
absurd songs which -invariably accompany the illustrations sent out,
and are known as "Illustrated Songs."
Some day, perhaps, these abominations will vanish from all theatres, as
they have done from Romano's.
The Majestic Theatre
Roars of laughter greeted the appearance on the screen of the absurd
comedy "The Rival Candidates," at
Manager Christie's theatre on Yates
Street on Monday and Tuesday last.
It was really one of the most amusing films that I have seen for a long
time. A powerful drama was one
dealing with the perils of the earlj
Quakers on this continent and showed
how even an Indian can be grateful
and blood-thirsty at the same time.
Mr. Christie continues to hit the nail
on the head all the time, and his house
is invariably crowded every evening.
The Crystal Theatre
I do not ever remember seeing as
many people in this large sized house
except on a Saturday night, as I did
last Monday. The numbers and excellence of the films shown at the
Crystal are more than off-setting the
slight disadvantage under, which it
labours by being off the main street.
I believe that when View Street is
opened up and Broad Street comes
into its own, we shall see the Crystal
thronged   nightly.    There   has   been

Dockstader was as inimitable as ever
in his moonlogues and there was
some good dancing. The weak spot
was the solo singing, which was decidedly below the usual level. Possibly some of the members of the
company were incapacitated, because
three of the advertised items were
omitted. However, the show as a
whole gave satisfaction and furnished
a thoroughly enjoyable evening's entertainment.,
The New Grand
Charles D. Webber carries about
with him some highly jtrained tame
hats, Dut they are by no means the
most important part of his paraphernalia which comprise an ingenious motor-car, a dressing-curtain and
an inimitable little manner of his
own. His juggling is a thing to
wonder at. Thc other big act this
week has been that of Mile. Ani Hill,
who is a lady athlete" of marvellous
skill and seemingly jointlcss shoulders. Her work on the trapeze is
worthy of thc highest praise. Thc
Mueller Brothers havc a fair selection of songs and sing them tunefully
enough. There is some novelty in
"The Lobbyist," which is this week's
stagincss, shallowness and a lack of
sincerity. As a matter of fact coming from a man of his culture and
experience it was distinctly "not
worth while." Mr. Warde's support
was worse than indifferent. Anything less like thc Shakespearean
spirit could hardly bc imagined.
With the single exception of his son
not one member of thc company knew
what they were doing, and from the
I manner in which they delivered
Shakespear's noble lines it is doubtful if they knew the difference between blank verse and a jingling
rhyme. It is greatly to be regretted
that Mr. Warde should have associated himself with such an aggregation of American barn-stormcrs. We
have far too little of Shakespeare
now-a-days, but far too much of
Shakespearean burlesque.

Tt was rather nice to get back to

Alick Lauder
The following paragraph appeared
in a well-known London paper last
year:—
26th July, 1910.
Pavilion—Alick Lauder, a brother
of the well-known Harry, shows
great versatility as an entertainer.
His make-up in all his songs is perfect, also his enunciation is vso clear
that nothing is lost to the audience.
Another good feature about his turn
is that he docs not require to descend
to vulgarity to gain favor with the
audience. Judging from the enthusiastic reception accorded him his popularity is assured.
Alick   Lauder   will   appear   at   thc
Victoria Theatre on Monday, May 8.
Congress of Stars
A theatrical evc/it of great importance will be thc appearance here for
two nights at the Victoria Theatre on
Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13,
of the congress of international stars,
headed by the famous English singing
comedienne, Vesta Victoria. Miss
Victoria is well known all over* the
world as a singer of humorous songs,
and her work has been in such demand for the past seven years, that
she has been unable to gratify her
great desire to tour Canada until the
present season.
Vesta Victoria was born in Yorkshire near Leeds, and began her stage
career af the age of four years, playing baby parts. Her father owned a
circuit of twelve theatres, and his lifelong wish was to see his daughter,
and child, shine in the histrionic firmament. She was educated by private tutors during the times when
she was not actively engaged upon
the stage.
The foundation of her theatrical experience was laid very firmly. She
played every known kind of part, running the gamut of all emotions during her" early girlhood. ' About the
age of fourteen years her voice was
noticed to have a peculiarly pleasant
quality, and steps were at once taken
to cultivate it. She was sent to India, where, under a well-known vocal
teacher, she became possessed of her
present wonderfully penetrating voice.
At the same time her dramatic teaching had schooled her in enunciation,
that most to be desired thing in the
rendition of humorous songs. She
found that she was naturally graceful, and able to portray the various
emotions required in the delivery of
these songs, and from the age of eighteen she deserted the field of drama
and became a singer pure and simple.
She appeared by command before
Rajah Bundi-Goona, in Calcutta, with
such success that she was engaged
to appear before the same company
again a week following.
"The Lily"
"The Lily," a play of ideas as well
as drama, adapted from the Frem-h
of Pierre Wolff and Gaston Leroux
by that master of stage craft and
dramatic technique, David Belasco,
will be the offering at the Victoria
Theatre soon.
"The Lily" finds its name from a
class of women well recognized in
France but little known as a special
type in America; they are the women
who have been denied the joys of
matrimony simply to appease a thread-
worn tradition of sex where everything is. sacrificed for the advancement of the son and the daughter is
merely considered as an incident in
the family. Mr. Belasco sends his
now famous company headed by
Nance O'Neil and Charles Cartwright, intact from his own theatre,
New York, where "The Lily" ran
for over an entire year, and was last
.season the theatrical sensation of the
year.
"The Mummy and the Humming
Bird"
- Despite its grotesque name, Isaac
Henderson's play, "The Mummy and
the Humming Bird," which will visit
thc Victoria Theatre on May 16, is
not a farce comedy in which archeology and ornithology struggle for
mastery, but a serious treatment of
the theme of marital infelicity, arising from unconscious neglect on one
side and hunger for affection on the
other. It narrowly misses tragedy
through thc awakening of the mummy in time to prevent thc depredations planned by the humming bird.
The restoration of love and confidence and the discomfiture of the
interloper arc accomplished by a series of events sufficiently out of the
ordinary, to pique the interest and
sufficiently dramatic to sustain the interest. Some of the scenes are devised with great cleverness, as for instance that in which the mummy carries on a conversation with the organ-
grinder who cannot speak English.
The use made of his sign-and-symbol
talk later on is certainly a most ingenious idea. Then there is the device by which thc mummy rescues
his wife and at the same time protects her reputation—a scene in which
great dramatic tensity is relieved by
an outcome that is as satisfying as it '
is unexpected.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
What Manner
of Man
BY BOHEMIAN
* . In spite of the deprecatory remarks of the Liberal Press, Professor
Stephen Leacock is a man of great
intelligence and courage. He was
taken to task severely for his really
• brilliant series of articles against
Reciprocity, but he would be a bold
man who would join issue with him
on the subject of Immigration.
Professor Leacock's latest article
on this subject has attracted widespread attention; it is timely, incisive,
illuminating and convincing. He first
of all draws attention to the fact that,
proportionate to its population, Canada is ahsorbing a far greater number
of immigrants than the United States
ever did.
No doubt this statement will come
as a surprise to many, but the figures
quoted are indisputable. In 1810 the
population of the United States was
practically the same as Canada's is
to-day—say 7,000,000. Immigration
into the United States in that year
amounted to 4,000, or .0006, while
Canada's immigration amounts to
250,000 or .3. Take a later comparison. From 1901 to 1908 there came
to .the United States 7,000,000 people,
less than one-tenth of the population,
whereas in nine years there came to
Canada 1,300,000, a number equal to
one-quarter of our population.
Under certain circumstances these
figures might be a source of gratification.    If  for  instance it  could bc
shown that all or. nearly all the immigrants were people of our own race
or of kindred races. But this is not
so, as *we all know. While a very
satisfactory number of immigrants
have come from the British Isles and
from the United States, the vast majority hail from the lower European
nationalities and have little respect
for the laws or the ideals of the
Anglo-Saxon race.
There is another feature that must
not be lost sight of. When we felicitate ourselves on the rapidly growing
tide of immigration which flows from
the United States, we must not delude ourselves with the notion that
these people are of British stock. It
is true that they have passed through
a process which without eradicating
their vicious tendencies has given
them a thin veneer of civilization.
They make law-abiding citizens because the arm of the law is strong
enough to maintain its authority, but
they do not share itj British sentiment and they unwillingly aim at
British standards.
It is easy to understand this when
one bears in mind that the character
of American immigration has undergone an entire change during the last
twenty-five years. Prior to that time
the bulk of the immigrants came
from Northern European countries;
from Scandinavia, from Holland,
from Germany. These people were
infiinitely more intelligent and highly
educated than the horde which of late
years have poured in from Southern
Europe. During the eight years from
1901 to 1908 Austria-Hungary sent to
North America 1,800,000 immigrants;
Italy, 1,325,000; Roumania, 50,000,
From Russia and Poland there arrived in the twenty-eight years from
1873 to 1900, 840,000 immigrants, and
iri the five years from 1902 to 1906,
408,000.
Any student of ethnology knows
what the influence of such a large
factor of inferior type must mean in
the development of the American
people, and when it is remembered
that the bulk of the American immigrants in Canada are drawn from this
class, it is not possible to avoid some
of the apprehensions as to'what the
ultiamte outcome may be.
The moral of Professor Leacock's
article is that it is quite possible for
Canada to travel too fast. In pursuance of natural laws, as well as a
sense of duty, the people of the Dominion must and will develop their
natural resources, and since the operation is so profitable it will not be
easy to impose an artificial check.
At the present moment wealth is
being rolled up in this Dominion at
a rate which knows no precedent even
in the great Republic to the South.
The ratio of increase in earnings and
in the accumulation of funds relative
to the population far transcends the
vosiest periods of United States development.
Possibly the finger of warning will
be unheeded, for when they are making money most people are content to
leave the future to take care of itself,
but I doubt if the people of Canada
are so unintelligent as to refuse to sit
down and think the matter over, and
I am sure that there is a very widespread feeling that the immigration
policy which contents itself with
"counting heads" will not satisfy a
people possessing the finest country
in the world and determined to build
up the strongest nation.
The mere accumulation of wealth,
and the enjoyment of all the luxuries
which it affords, may go hand in hand
with intelligent and conservative development. Restrictions have already
been imposed on Canadian immigration for various reasons. Neither the
Chinaman nor the Jap is allowed unrestricted liberty in this respect, but
there may be even greater menace if
the country is filled up with people
of low ideals.
As Professor Leacock very truly
says there is no process known to
the history of mankind by which a
community of 7,000,000 people can be
changed with the showy brilliance of
a transformation scene into one of
the great nations of the world. We
have got to be content if we would
aim at ultimate greatness to" remain
as yet' among the lesser communities
of mankind.
ART FURNITURE
Attention is directed to the second
announcement of the sale of high-
class art furniture and pictures to be
conducted by Mr. Stewart Williams
on Tuesday next. The sale takes
place at the residence of Mr. Dunn
on the East Saanich Road. Nearly
all the furniture was supplied by an
eminent London firm and without
doubt it is the best collection for all-
round excellence that has been offered
in Victoria for many years.

into the scandalous ill-treatment of
a Hindu named Bronsen Singh, who
at the instigation of G. W. Kirk &
Co., was dragged out of bed, and
unlawfully locked up by a minion of
the law named Victor Heather.
I had already personally informed
Mr. Higgins, who apparently does not
accept my word, that I had absolutely nothing to do with this Hindu
interviewing The Week or bringing
his case before the Police Commissioners.

To Save a Beauty Spot
" To prevent the land falling into the

Colley Hill for preservation as a public open space of great natural beauty.
The property includes a part of the
summit, the steep sides and the lower
slopes of that part of the North
Downs which overhangs the town of
Reigate. The summit of the hill is
more than 700 feet above sea level,
and it commands the long line of the

In his final exhortation Father
Vaughan said that he had been struck

fervently than ever he recommended
members of his guild to put together
their "bits of things" and to make for

commonly so-called "high-grade."   It is the kind of furniture that is a never-failing source of pleasure to its owner.
In our furniture department may be seen a splendid assortment—an exclusive assortment — of all that is needed for a correctly furnished
bungalow, cottage or mansion, and during this month you can study your own interests best by visiting this store, where "SALES" are never needed,
and where you can ALWAYS rely on getting the highest possible value for every cent you may spend with us at any time of the year.

Victoria, May 2, 1911.
.Editor The W«k:
Dear Sir:---*-In my youth my mother
taught me to be polite; am afraid she
would blush could she see me some
days now,
...   Why the change?
Am sorry to say the callousness,
indifference of those around me has
gradually worked into my. system.
Hold a dqor open for a lady (so
called) she sweeps past with haughty
disdain; give up your seat- in a car,
it's taken with never a thank you or
even a smile. It's your duty, sir, be
thankful you don't get kicked for your
pains.
On Saturday night coming in
from the country I stepped off sidewalk twice, once for a lady and again
for a gentleman riding bicycles. Their
thanks are still coming.
Some tinus when I do receive a
thank you I look to see who has
greeted me, and I invariably find a
lady or gentleman of refined appearance, neat dress, one that you may be
sure has been accustomed to polite
society all their life; never by any
chance one of those over-dressed individuals, who whether they know it
or not show by their manner and
action—we are of the mushroom
growth. This in a city that has a
name for wealth, intellect and refinement—a city that should be an example to the rest of the Dominion. It
costs nothing to be polite, and if some
of our men and women would give a
little more attention to the subject
and less to the get-rich-quick schemes
that arc floating round they would be
much better citizens.
Yours truly,
GEO. B. LOWRY.
THE TURF
The Directors of the Victoria Country Club are to be congratulated upon
the number of, and quality of the
horses that they have already stabled
at the Exhibition Grounds in training
for the forthcoming May race meeting. At present writing there are 175
animals there and a further contingent of about 50 from Los Angeles,
Vancouver, Idaho, Oregon and Washington points will arrive in a few days.
Numerically, there are at present
* more than a sufficiency, but it is the
high-class calibre of the horses that
this year is exciting so much favourable comment. Such well known turf
performers as Glorio, Sir John, Li-
saro, Tony Faust, Arionette, Daddy
Gip, Thistle Belle, Roy Junior and
Bea Man, arc already here and the
powerful EI Palomon Stable with its
star performers—Cluny and Venetian
—are en route. This stable is owned
by Mr. Chas. W. Clark, the San Mateo millionaire, and it is a high compliment to the local organization that
Victoria should be thc place selected
for his stable to race at, in preference
to Kentucky and other points.
The three stake races which are
the special feature events of the meeting have closed with an entry list of
nearly thirty to each race at the distances of six furlongs, one mile and
one mile and one-eighth and with a
three days' interim, they will attract
all the best horses, and the local turf
solons predict that the three existing
track records at those distances will
be all lowered.
Thanks to the assiduous care of
Managing Director Fraser, the track
has been placed in far better condition than heretofore and those owners who havc raced here before are
loud in their praises as to its improvement.
The new Pari-Mutuel machines
have already arrived in Vancouver
and will be shipped here immediately
upon the arrival of the expert mechanician who will come here direct from
the factory for the purpose of installing and thoroughly testing them.
Since last year Messrs. Granger &
Co., of Louisville, Kentucky, the manufacturers, have made several improvements including a self register-

ing device and other features. The
machines to be used here are of the
best pattern and after the order was
placed the Ontario Jockey Club followed the lead and ordered similar
machines, which will be used at ths
forthcoming meeting at their Woodbine Track. It is safe to predict that
the use of these machines as a means
to assist those speculatively inclined,
in lieu of the bookmaker, is bound to
meet with a similar success in British Columbia, to that which they have
already attained in New Zealand,
France and Kentucky, in which places
horse racing is looked upon with great
favour. In a future issue we will explain fully the workings of the system, showing its absolute fairness and
positive detergent upon plunging.
SOME POLICE STATISTICS
In discussing the question of resubmission of the Prohibition constitutional amendment in Maine the
other day, Senator Staples of Portland cited some police statistics
which will take a large amount of explaining by those who close their eyes
to the facts, and contend that prohibitory liquor laws do really prohibit.
Said he, to quote a portion of his
speech: "I find that in the city of
Portland during the last year of
Sheriff Despeaux's administration
(1900) a so-called wide-open period,
there were a total of 1,518 arrests for
drunkenness; in the last year of Pearson's (Prohibition) administration
(1902) there wcre 1.593 arrests for
drunkenness, and in the last year of
Trefethen's (Prohibition) administration (1910) there were 3,477 arrests
for drunkenness. Here is an increase
of more than double in arrests for
drunkenness in Portland in ten years.
And last year's exhibit of 3,477 arrests was made with law enforcement
in the hands of Republicans pledged
to Prohibit, and with the Sturgis force
in the city in addition. Look at
Bangor with its police record of
drunk arrests during the recent Sturgis regime, which far exceeded anything in the history of the city. Over
in Biddeford the Biddeford Record
reports: "Two deaths within four
days from alcoholism in a community
of 25,000 inhabitants, with the prohibitory law protecting the home and
the weak who might otherwise yield
to the temptation of strong drink.'
These are facts and only specimen,
facts."
COVERED WITH ECZEMA
Cured by Two Bottles D. D. D.
On March 21st, 1910, Mr. Angus
McMillan, of Port Hood, N. S., wrote
us:
"My little boy three years old was
covered from head to foot with eczema. I tried over twenty different
kinds of salves and washes but could
not see any improvement—in fact it
seemed to be getting worse.
I was about discouraged and had
lost faith in all kinds of so-called eczema cures, when I saw an ad. telling
about D. D. D. Prescription. I sent
for sample bottle and the third application convinced me that I had at last
got a sure cure. Two bottles effected
a complete cure."
What D. D. D. did for this little
boy, it will do for any skin sufferer.
A mild, soothing liquid made up of
Oil of Wintergreen, Thymol, Glycerine and other ingredients, it penetrates to the root of the trouble and
washes the disease germs out.
Why not get relief? Simply write
today to the D. D. D. Laboratories,
Qept. W.V., 49 Colborne St., Toronto, and they will send you a free
trial bottle.

LOCAL MARKET
ice the writing of our last letter there has been a further
American Canadian and Alberta Canadian Oils, the former
ig from sales at 30 to sales a day or two ago at 20 cents and
Iter recording a decline from 12 to sales at 6% cents.   Our
li of these shares remains unchanged, without oil in paying
lies they are worthless and we have not as yet heard of their
usher.   Canadian North-west Oil has come on the market
good sized blocks, the stock selling freely as low as 4 cents
It looks very much as if this price is about 4 cents too high,
rtland Canal stocks remain more or less unchanged with
Id Canal M. Co. shares displaying a sagging tendency, cur-
lotations of io^4 being the lowest recorded for some time
late reports from this property are really of an encouraging
|a letter just to hand stating that the continuation south of
drift on the No. 2 level has opened an ore body from two
set in width, and so far, for a length of more than 40 feet,
best milling ore yet developed, assaying from .08 to .20
i, from 12 to 18 ozs. silver and about 10 per cent. lead. This
1 an ore value of from $16.50 to $22.50 per ton or from $2.50
per ton more than the company have latterly figured on.
leve these shares at current quotations present a good specu-
lalue.   Red Cliff shares at present prices we consider alto-
loo high, we would sell them and buy Portlands.
Inbler-Cariboo has become an active market feature again of
|ing as high as 46 cents, a net gain of about 8 cents over last
closing figures.   We understand this company has its ore
|veloped to a great depth, and were it not for the expensive
igre transportation facilities, due to the big fire of 1910,
laday be shipping in large quantities.   This property looks
[al mine and we believe the shares will sell much higher in
future.
Isidering the strike situation, International Coal is holding
with current figures ex dividend at 65 cents bid. In our
these shares present by far the best possibilities, both as an
|.nt and speculation, of the local list. This price per share
Its a market value of about $2,000,000 on a company capital-
||?3,ooo,ooo and with a mine value conservatively estimated
J)5,ooo,ooo. A regular dividend payer for the past four years
[ding over 9 per cent, net, at present figures we do not begone can go wrong in buying these shares at the market,
understand the Royal Collieries have been successful in
of their debenture issue and for a long pull these shares
stum a substantial profit.

BANK CLEARINGS RECORD FIGURE
All records for growth in Ideal bank clearings for the first four
months of the year were Broken during the period from January i
to April 30 this year, when an increase of fifty per cent was registered over the corresponding period a year ago. As compared with
the four months in 1909 the increase made aggregates no less than
122 per cent, indicating that in the two years clearings here have
more than doubled.
The continued activity in the business circles, the increase in
building and the recent active operations in the local realty market
all contribute to swell the returns which bear testimony to the increasing importance of Victoria as a business centre.
The April figures showed a slight falling off from March, but
it is a significant thing that in other cities of the Dominion the rate
of increase established has fallen off considerably in short periods
though the aggregate for the month shows a very large increase
over the same month last year.
The monthly totals for the year to date compared with the
same period in the two previous years were as follows:

BUILDING FIGURES STILL CLilBING
For the first four months of the year, the aggregate value of the
structures for which permits have been issued by the building
trades inspector was $894,450, compared with $717,945 for the corresponding period in 1910, an increase of twenty-three per cent.
The increase over the four months in 1909 was no less than $383,430
or seventy-five per cent.
The April returns are the largest for the year to date and are only
exceeded by two months in any previous year, June* a year ago, and
July, two years ago.
During the month permits issued numbered eighty-six compared with seventy-nine in April, 1910, while the total number of
permits issued since the beginning of the year was 361 as against
266 for the four months last year.

AWARDED HUGE PAVING CONTRACT
The largest paving contract ever let by the City of Victoria and
in all likelihood the largest which any single municipality on the
continent was ever called upon to award, was awarded on Monday
night by the city to the Canadian Mineral Rubber company, with
headquarters in Toronto. Of the ten companies tendering, the bid
of the Canadian Mineral Rubber Company for the eighty-nine
streets for which tenders were called, was in the aggregate the lowest. Some of the other companies were lower on some streets, but
as the other concerns bid only for sections of the work, the bid of
the Canadian Mineral company being the only one for the entire
work, and as the latter's bid was nearly $24,000 less than the sum
total of the other bids, the council awarded the company the contract. The work is approximately 568,000 square yards, nearly
thirty miles in all. Of this about 169,000 square yards can be let
forthwith and the balance, comprising streets which have not yet
been actually passed by the council for paving, can be let as the
works are approved, the company giving an understanding that it
will undertake the work as fast as the streets are passed by the
council at the same rate and under the .same guarantees.

TEMPLE BUILDING FORT STREET THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1911
V, V. & E. RAILWAY
By a deal just completed with the V. V. & E. railway, which is
subsidiary company of the Great Northern Railway, and Mr, F. L.
irter-Cotton, M.P.P. for Richmond, the company has exchanged
o feet of waterfrontage on Burrard Inlet for a like amount of ad-
ining property owned by Mr. Carter-Cotton. The result of the
ide is to place the Great Northern Railway in possession of an un-
iterrupted stretch of waterfrontage, between the property of the,
j-itish Columbia Sugar Refininig Company and Heatley avenue,
pncouver.
Good progress is being made on the contract of building a
jenty mile section of the V. V. & E. Railway between Abbotsford
Id Chilliwack, by J. W. Stewart & Co., contractors, according to A.
fclett, superintendent in charge. Two hundred men are working
j the grade and three steam shovels are being used in rock cuts six
(Is east of Abbotsford.
"There is no reason why the contract should not be completed
■side of ninety days.   Beyond the rock cuts the route is across a
fel stretch," says Mr. Kellett.
CORONATION MINES
The Coronation Mines, which comprise the Bendor Mines, the
■Juntless and Exchange Fraction, situate on Cadwallader Creek in
Bridge river district of the Lillooet mining division, have been
Quired by a strong syndicate of Victoria men.  The veins are free
tiling gold, and have been traced upon the surface for over five
pusand feet.   They have been proved to. grow richer in depth to
: three hundred foot level, and on the Bendor property have been
(med up by levels and upraises, so that at present a conservative
imate of the ore in sight is 60,000 tons. A fourth level, which it
sxpected will strike the ledge in another ioo feet, will give 210
re feet of backs on the vein] and if the ledge continues in width
value, will more than double the ore in sight. There is a fully
flipped ten stamp mill upon the property, run by a water power
ficient to run a mill of 100 stamps.
The company known as the Coronation Mines, Limited, has
11,000 in cash for development purposes, and is putting no treasury
ck on the market. Mr. Charles Copp, the superintendent, with
Dree of men, has commenced mining operations. Until the end
June Mr. Copp will confine his attention to development only,
as soon thereafter as he considers it advisable, milling opera-
(is will be started under the superintendence of the most compe-
millmen available.
The company, of which Mr. H. B. Thomson, M. P. P., is presi-
|it, Mr. G. A. Kirk, vice-president, and Mr. F. H. Forbes, secre-
has acquired the Coronation Mines and intends to develop
[m as rapidly and economically as possible.
CONTRACT LET FOR NEW PRINCESS
The contract for a new Princess liner for the C. P. R. to run
■/een Victoria and northern British Columbia ports, has been
^rded to Messrs. Bow, McLachlan & Co., of Paisley, builders of
steamer Princess Mary, by the British Columbia coast steam-
service of the C. P. R.  The new vessel, which is to be added
Jthe growing coasting fleet of the C. P. R., on this coast, with
jdquarters at Victoria, will be a steel single screw freight and
senger steamer, designed to allow of carrying heavy freight as
ll as passengers, equipped with large hatches and powerful
Iches and good passenger accomodations.
\ The new steamer will be 240 feet long, 44 feet beam, and 18 feet
_, with a capacity for 1,200 tons deadweight.   Work will be
|ted at once on the new vessel, and she will probably arrive here
in the autumn.
IThe new Princess is to be operated between Victoria and Prince
ert and northern British Columbia ports, probably also to
en Charlotte island ports.
QUEBEC HAS A $20,000,000 BOOT MERGER
I A big boot and shoe merger is the latest thing in the way of a
bine in Quebec. The capital will be in the neighborhood of
300,000. The trust is to include if possible all the factories in
about the district of Quebec. The Marsh and the Ritchie con-
s are about the most important mentioned in connection with
merger.   The men behind the movement are still dark horses
inot a manufacturer here has anything to say about the affair,
declare that it is premature to speak and that nothing has yet
done.
It is expected that a great economy will be effected in manu-
iring by the merger under which it is proposed to confine the
e of particular classes of goods to particular factories. It is also
iosed to abolish all piece work and to pay weekly wages only.
A SYNDICATE BADLY HIT IN CRUDE RUBBER
Some of the largest rubber interests are of the opinion that the
of the era of abnormally high prices and extreme fluctuations
rude rubber is now definitely in sight. It is extremely unlikely
except in periods of great panic the world will ever again see
le rubber shoot upward from $1.50 to over $3 per pound and de-
: again inside of a twelve-month to $1.13.
I Leading interests are confident that rubber will continue to rule
w $1.50 per pound for many months. For one thing stocks of
ier in sight are double what they were a year ago.

_
They may be placed at about 10,000 tons, compared with less
than 5,000 tons a ye'ar ago.   ...
A speculative Brazilian syndicate is loaded up with over 5,000
tons of high-priced rubber. Of this amount the syndicate has been
carrying 2,400 tons ever since prices soared to $3 per pound a little
over a year ago. They accumulated another 3,000 tons on the decline, and are sitting on the entire lot. It was this syndicate which
pushed prices up from $1.13 recently to $1.75 per pound, but consumers refused to be frightened, and a more natural market at
around $1.30 has been established.
A $5,000,000 MERGER OF CROCKERY COMPANIES
Another important amalgamation has been consummated. It
will include several of the largest wholesale crockery and glassware
manufacturers and distributors in Canada. The name of the new
concern is Cassidy's, Limited, with a capital stock of $5,000,000, divided into 50,000 shares of $100 each. The head office of the company will be at Montreal. The following companies are included in
the merger:
The John L. Cassidy, Limited, Montreal.
Gowans, Kent & Co., Toronto.
Gowans, Kent Western, Limited, Winnipeg.
Bawo & Dotter, New York (with branch houses and factories in
Germany and France.
All the common stock, $2,500,000, _^nd also the preferred stock
has been issued. Canadian capital only is interested in the amalgamation, which will both manufacture and distribute. New branches
may be established in various parts of the Dominion. No bond
issue is contemplated. The following are the officers of the new
company: President, Messrs. Wm. Prentice; secretary, F. Warden ;
treasurer, Mr, Petch; directors, Mr. Wm. Prentice, Mr. Wm. Yuill,
Mr. W. D. Birchall, Mr. F.'S. Parlee, Mr. J. D. Montgomery, Mr.

GENERAL INQUIRY INTO TELEGRAPH POOLS
The general enquiry into telegraph pools being conducted by
■Isaac Pitblado, K, C, of Winnipeg, before the Dominion railway
commission has been postponed indefinitely. Mr. Pitblado was unable to continue his investigation into the affairs of the G. N. W.
to a conclusion on the 28th u^t., as he had not been able to read the
contract between the Grand Trunk and the G. N. W. He also
wanted a mass of detailed information from the C. P. R., which will
take at least a month or six weeks to provide. There was a long
argument as to how far back the C. P. R. should be compelled to
dig into their cost accounts. Chairman Mabee did not think it was
material what the company was earning twenty-five years ago.' The
point was what they were earning now. After a short consultation,
however, Dr. Mills Darcy Scott and Commissioner McLean apparently overruled him, as he announced that a majority of the board
were of the opinion that the C. P. R. would have to.dig down to the
day of their birth. The question of the separation of the cost of
construction of telegraph lines as distinct from the railway business
is going to be very difficult, as the C. P. R. run their telegraph
business apparently merely as a branch of the railway company. It
was finally decided that as soon as Mr. Pitblado had sufficient information to resume the enquiry he should notify the board, and a
date will be set for the next session.
It was learned from the examination of Mr, Fred Roper, secretary-treasurer of the Dominion Telegraph company, that the G. N.
W. was virtually a holding company for the Western Union, who
also owned a large block of stock in the Dominion Telegraph Company, stock that was originally purchased by the late Jay Gould
when he organized the American Union in competition with the
Western Union, the two latter companies shortly afterward amalgamating.
A cablegram from Ontario or Montreal to Great Britain costs
25 cents a word. The cable rate from Winnipeg is 34 cents a word.
Thus on a ten-word cable message Winnipeg pays' 90 cents as far
as Montreal, whereas a domestic ten-word message costs only 75
cents. Isaac Pitblado, K.C, asked General Manager Perry how that
was.  "Difference in the class of business," he was told,
MANY HOLDERS OF SOVEREIGN BANK AGREE
Shareholders of the Sovereign Bank are accepting with a good
deal of promptness the proposal to subscribe for stock equal in
amount to the double liability on their Sovereign Bank shares in a
new company which will wind up the business.
Mr. F. G. Jemmett, the general manager, has received a number of applications from smaller shareholders, and it is understood
that the larger interests in the bank have already expressed their approval of the plan. The feature of the new scheme is that the charter will be saved, and the double liability clause not invoked.
Mr. Jemmett says in his letter to holders: "During the last
three years the collection of the bank's assets has been pushed as
vigorously as has been consistent with the avoiding of unnecessary
loss, and enough has been collected to reduce the bank's total liabilities from $16,174,000 as on December 31, 1907, to $4,208,000, as
on December 31, 1910, a reduction of approximately $12,000,000 in
three years. Allowing for liquidation since December 31, 1910, and
for 'set-offs' of some of its assets against liabilities, the present actual liabilities are about $4,000,000. Against these liabilities the
bank has assets which are carried on its books at about $5,000,000,
and these assets, if carefully nursed and satisfactorily disposed of,
may realize about this amount."

A GRAND ADVERTISEMENT
On the 19th and 20th of this month
Victoria will receive on of the best
advertisements possible for any city.
On those two dates the United Commercial Travellers will hold their annual convention in the Capital and
they may be reckoned on to "boost"
the fame of Victoria throughout their
subsequent travels. The U. C. T. is
one of the most powerful organizations of its kind on the North American Continent and its members are
drawn from both sides of the Line.
Victoria is situated in what is known
as the Pacific Coast District and at
last year's meeting it was decided that
the next convention should be held
here. Special representatives will
come from the other cities in the same
district, the most important of which
are Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Ta-
-coma, Everett, Bellingham, Oregon
and Vancouver. In addition to these
special representatives there will be a
host of travellers from the East and
Central States and Provinces who
have made arrangements to combine
business with pleasure and will arrive
here, many of them with their, wives,
so as to be in time for the convention.
In all, the local committee expect to
act as host to some eight or ten hundred guests. A splendid programme
of entertainment is being arranged to
take place in between the various
business which is scheduled for discussion, and in the next issue of The
Week a full and detailed account of
the perfected arrangements will be
published.

BOOK NOTES
Randall Parrish has woven a charming story around a love-scene during
the Civil War and though one can
hardly help regarding the hero as little better than a fool during the opening chapters, the author has so skillfully treated his subject matter that
the mental deficiency of the principal'
character becomes submerged in his
undoubted prowess as a soldier.
"Love Under Fire," for such is the
title of the book, is written in Mr.
Parrish's best style and is worthy to
be ranked high, amongst modern historical romances.

THE DOUKHOBOURS
Residents in and around Nelson
have been immensely struck with the
vast progress made by the colony of
Doukhobours which has settled at
Brilliant. These enterprising people
have just completed the planting of
60,000 fruit trees at Brilliant besides
6,000 additional trees at Passmore
which almost adjoins the Brilliant settlement at Grand Forks. Two thousand  acres  have  been   planted  with
these trees which are of the very highest variety, and this only represents
about one-quarter of what they intend
to do.
The Doukhobours, to say the least,
are a very great people. Their settlements in Brilliant are one "harmonious heaven of love and kindness" to
each other and to all they meet. Mr.
Peter Veregin, their leader, is a great
man, and is surely' the Tolstoi of
Doukhobour society. During the coming summer schools are to be built
to satisfy the needs of the community.
Another Vice-President -
It is stated on good authority here
that when Sir Thomas Shaughnessy
returns to Montreal from the old
country hc will appoint another vice-
president of the C. P. R. in thc West
and that General Manager Bury will
bc given the title. The headquarters
of thc new official will probably be at
Vancouver. Wm. Whyte will remain
as chief executive official in thc West,

. Directors of thc Kootenay Lake
General Hospital Association have de-
tided to erect a new building at a cost
of approximately $60,000 to replace
the present inadequate and inconvenient structure.

was more impressive in the
hi models than a frock of cot-
lit, with small Dresden-like
|cattcred over it, above a' bor-
Empire   wreaths    entwined.
There was an underskirt, gored at the
top, with a line of insertion, shidow
lace, down the centre as far as the
knees. At that point the skirt was
crossed by two bands of the insertion. The top was "fixed" where it
met the centre line of lace, with a
bow of shell pink satin ribbon, while
below it, on the second row of insertion, was another bow of the same
.character, from which drooped two
ends of satin, each with a long silk
tassel. The bottom of the skirt was
turned in a hem and faced on the
wrong side with pink satin that
showed through. There was a tunic
of creamy mousseline matching the
groundwork of the print, and this was
in the form of two panniers, each
drawn to a point, and finished with a
tassel, while at the top the satin sash
ended in a bow just where it was most
needed--*-at the top of the long line of
insertion. *   *   *
Bandings are popular as trimmings
on the pretty combination dresses,
and are made of all sorts of materials,
oftentime in distinct contrast to the
remainder of the decorative scheme.
They serve a great many purposes.
Ball fringe is another favorite used
in finish edges. It is almost the exception that a costume has not a cord
and tassel, either around the waist,
monk fashion, or twisted into a noose
and applied as a bow or a rosette.
Metal fringes and laces, too, find a
place with thin summer materials.
Sometimes they seem a bit incongruous, but incongruity we must accept
as one of the fascinations of the new
modes. These fringes are seldom
used in any profusion, but as sash
ends or to finish a short panel or stole
when they give an enlivening hint.
* *   *
It is 'going to be a great year for
original wraps of all kinds, some diminutive and well above the waist line
and others extending well toward the
hem of the gown. Already such delectable little creations have sprung
up abundantly. One of the most fascinating ones seen is the fichu shaped
cape made of double-faced satin, tho
contrasting color of the lining turning
out in odd little collars, revers, hems
and other finishes. Hood effects are
seen on some such models, and all
sorts of quaint collar shapes. Similar
wraps are made of two layers of chiffon, one over the other, the under
and upper side in contrasting tones
and the undertone creeping onto the
outside in pretty finishes. Separate
little boleros are going to give variety
to next summer's wardrobe. One of
the sanest of these garments is of
black satin piped with a color that
harmonizes with the toilet which it is
j to accompany. One of the kind seen
at an opening was very short and thc
j fronts were cut to meet in a sort of
point at the bust but allowed tt) hang
loose. It is the thing, it is said, for
these little coats to hang open and
loose. Some such jackets are being
made of changeable silk in flower colors to go with dainty flowered summer frocks, and others are coming out
in lingerie and lace, sometimes with
beading and embroidery that is all
white or that introduces a needed note
of color.

A parasol made of white English
embroidery shows the scalloped edges
strikingly accentuated on a bordering
band of black velvet ribbon, and the
long ends of a bow of black velvet
ribbon floats from the stick of white
wood. This is adorable with a white
corded silk costume and white straw
hat, both enlivened with touches of
soft, delicious, cerise velvet. . A second black and white parasol has its
foundation of thin white silk, covered
with black point d'esprit to thc edge
of a six or seven inch border of fine

and a smaller one is posed on the
handle. Still another is all of lovely
white Venise lace laid over white
mousseline de soie; at the edge this
bubbles into a mass of tiny puffs over
tinier frills of white Valenciennes
lace, and, under all, is thc effective
band of black velvet ribbon. A long
black silk tassel ornaments the end
of the stick as it bulges  into a big

i beautiful of all, and a real novelty, is
a parasol whicli was carried one day
by the lovely Princess of Plcss, who
is appearing in public for thc first time
since   her   long   illness.    Soft   white i
I silk covers the frame, and over it is
laid   while,   sparkling  bcad-cmbroid- ]
crcd tulle.   Silver galon, to thc depth
of three inches, borders thc edge, and
ithe handle of polished whitcwood is
tied   with   a   long   white   silk   tassel
knobbed with silver. Imagine this
severely lovely thing shading a big
hat, with a wide curved brim, of fine
pink straw, trimmed all about with
big, fresh-looking roses shading from
deep Burgundy red into palest pink!
At one side of thc back they mounted
into a tall feather-shaped spray; the
under side of thc brim was faced with
black velvet. A regal picture this
Princess made.

We are all Pioneers. Not here for our
health, but to make money. No man ever
saved more than a competence on a salary;
few do that. To get a footing on "Easy
Street" you have to invest. DOLLARS
don't grow in your pockets, or in a stocking. They must be put to work. Old
Russell Sage said: "Plant a few in a new
country and see how fast they grow."
And here is the biggest opportunity of this
kind that is likely to knock at your door
this year.
IF YOU OWN ELLISON LOTS LIST
THEM WITH US
READ CURRENT HISTORY
Prince Rupert lot speculators do not
need to have pointed out to them what
magic lies in the announcement that the
great railway company and the Government are partners in the Ellison townsite.
That should be enough to bring them
a-running. But not everybody has the
time to read the newspapers as closely as
your uncle. In the Manitoba Free Press of
April 5th, for instance, there was a big
headline reading: "Hundred and seventy
new towns to be Born in Western Canada
During the Company Year." • Reading the
list one finds many are Grand Trunk Pacific towns, but not one in British Columbia.
No, Ellison and Prince Rupert are the
townsites in which the railway is directly
interested at this time.
ELLISON
WHERE ATLANTIC LOCOMOTIVES WILL TOOT SALUTE TO PACIFIC
STEAMERS ON THE SKEENA RIVER
ELLISON
One of the most popular of all the official reports published by the British Columbia Government is the. one bearing upon its title page the
caption: "New British Columbia," which has become generally known as "Bulletin No. 22," that
being the official number of the report. It has been
widely distributed and you will have little difficulty
in finding one. On one page of this popular report
you will read this official declaration: "Upper
Skeena will become one of the garden spots of
British Columbia." )
ELLISON, from its advantageous position,
with the Skeena River navigable for large steamers
at its front, a great transcontinental railway intersecting it, should naturally become the metropolis
of the wonderful garden spot of British Columbia
referred to in the official report.
ELLISON lots are ready sellers. Why?
Just study the map a minute or two.
ELLISON is a townsite in which the Government and the Grand Trunk Pacific are active partners. There can, therefore, be not even a shadow
of doubt as to its future success. You are invited
to share in this certain success by investing in a
few town lots while they are at bottom prices.
ELLISON should, within a short time, have a
regular train service, as it is but a little distance
from Mile 104, to which point it is expected that
trains from Prince Rupert will be running this
summer.
ELLISON may not be the only pebble on the
Skeena River beach, but it certainly is the only
townsite on that  navigable water in which  the
railway company have announced themselves
interested. No doubt next year there may be other
additions and sections put on the market, but by
that time prices will have gone up. Now ,you
have a chance to be in on the ground floor.
DOLLARS invested in good ground, rapidly
grow.   Did you look at that map?
WHERE the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Government are joint owners in a townsite the lots
should be regarded as a safe investment. Where
one might and properly should hesitate before
investing in townsites promoted by individuals or
town-promoting companies, there can be no hesitancy or misgiving as to town lots in which the
Government and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
are jointly interested.
ELLISON is different. Do you catch on?
What better guarantee can you possibly look for?
PRINCE RUPERT'S brief history will be repeated in the sale of ELLISON town lots.
ELLISON, .should have the most rapid growth*
of any new town in British Columbia or anywhere
else. Lots in the sections we are now offering for
sale, as well as such additions and sections that may
be offered later, may be calculated to bring investors similar returns to those resulting from the
first sale of Prince Rupert town lots.
ELLISON, where the Grand Trunk Pacific
Transcontinental trains from the Atlantic will first
strike that wonderful Skeena River.
ELLISON needs at present merchants, hotel
men, "the baker, the butcher and the candlestick
maker," more than lot speculators, but they will
come later all right, as they did in Prince Rupert,
and pay BIG RENTS.
ELLISON tradespeople will live in a town
where railway freight rates will always be regulated
by the competition of water transportation, as
Ellison will be the last important landing up the
Skeena River. It is where the railway leaves the
Skeena Valley to follow that of the famous Bulklev
Valley.
ELLISON is on the market NOW. It is very
doubtful if any other Grand Trunk townsite in
British Columbia will be on the market this year.
ELLISON is destined to be the principal shipping point not only for the agricultural belt in the
Bulkley and adjacent valleys—just glance at the
map again and see what a vast country will depend
on Ellison for its supplies and transportation for
its products. And then, when Grand Trunk
officials announce the fact that it is THE townsite
in the Hazelton district in which their company
is interested, you are reminded of the great mining
activity that district is promised this season, the
machinery to go in ancl the rich ore to come out.
ELLISON is the first spring opening of Grand
Trunk Pacific offerings in the way of town lot
opportunities. There may be others later, but
there's no certainty when. Come early and select
Ellison lot, 20 per cent cash, balance easy terms,
7 per cent, interest. A few lots in Ellison Town-
site for sale—Inside lots $250.00 each; corner lots
$350.00 each.
