importation of food. Without wearying
our readers with too many details, let us
take one line wliieh will appeal to ever//
householder and which sufficiently illustrates the point. Last year Britisli Columbia imported $5,000,000 worth of
poultry, butter and eggs; yet we are telling the whole world, and witb perfect:
truthfulness, that this is an ideal country
for the raising of poultry and the pasturing of cattle. The only possible comment
upon such a state of affairs is that it is a
reproach lo the Province, and one which
cannot too quickly be removed. Could anything he more anomalous than for British
Columbia to import any farm produce.
There is not a single item which cannot
be raised here of equal quality and, under
normal conditions, at as low a cost as in
the most favoured spots elsewhere. Vet
we import the bulk of our dairy requirements; more than 80 per cent, of our
meat, and (10 per cent, of our flour. Most
surprising of all, we import no inconsiderable percentage of our fruit and vegetables. The only remedy for this and the
only means of reducing the cost of living,
whicii will soon become an absolute neces-
city, is to cultivate more land and to furnish the transportation facilities and organise the commercial agencies necessary
for marketing the products of the farm
to the best advantage. Iu view of the enlightened railway policy adopted by the
.McBride Government and the splendid appropriations made fov roads, bridges and
trails, it may for the moment be conceded that the Government is alive to the necessities of the case in this respect.
But there is something else which the
Government must do, and do at once. That
is, either co-operate with private capital
iu working out an effective colonization
scheme, or itself undertake to colonise.
Of the two methods the former is preferable both because it is on every ground
desirable to encourage private enterprise
and never desirable for a Government to
assume a larger share of responsibility
iu commercial development than is absolutely necessary. Moreover, colonizing is
a specialty and involves an amount of detailed work with which it would be unwise to saddle a Government Department,
if it could he avoided. It ought, therefore, to be possible to offer such inducements to a ' lion a fide" colonisation companies of satisfactory financial status to
enable thein to successfully launch and
curry out their undertaking, and there is
no doubt that the electorate would sustain
the Government in auy such project.
There are large tracts of lands in the
Province under reserve, especially those
which have been set aside for University
purposes. There is no reason why a portion of this should not be placed under
the direction of private enterprise with
such guarantees as would he satisfactory
to the Government. Failing this, the latter must itself undertake the establishment of special agencies foi- bringing iu
British horn settlers of the agricultural
class, who will remain on the soil and lie
content to be farmers. Hitherto, thnt has
been the difficulty. Agriculturists selected by such an efficient and popular agency
ns the Salvation Army and placed on
cleared land on Vancouver [sland have already abandoned their holdings for the
lure of the city and the higher wages offered there; and this in spite of the fact
that they were granted special privileges
ami provided with winter work at good
wages when tliev could not be receiving
an income from the land. The fact of
lhe matter is that no agency has yet got
hold nf the right class of settlers for Brit
ish Columbia, and it is not likely that
this -will bc done except through the assistance of the Government, and that assistance will have to take a different form
than a capitation fee or an advance to the
Salvation Army. The necessity for Government assistance is further emphasized
by the heavy cost of land clearing and
the scarcity of labour. It will be necessary either to attract farmers with considerable capital, or fo advance the money
for clearing the land; whether it is advanced to fhe settler or expended under a
Government scheme. Xo agriculturist of
the labouring class will ever be able fo afford to settle on Vancouver Island land
and clear it himself.
The last phase of this question is its
economic aspect, whicii demands treatment
in a separate article, but it, is obviously
the duty of the Government to appoint a
Commission and investigate tiie conditions
which prevail in different parts of the
Province with reference to the distribution and marketing of farm produce. It
is doubtful if, at any rate on Vancouver
Island, more than 50 per cent, of the
fruit crop is marketed at all. It is a fact
known to The Week that while thousands
of new .fruit trees are being planted farmers are ploughing up their apple orchards because they cannot make them pay.
It is a fact that well-known fruit-growers
in the Duncan district have realised no
more than 135 cents a box for choice apples
which have been retailed in Victoria at
$1.75. It is a fact that even pears do not
always pay for bringing into Victoria, and
that in known instances the price realised
bas not yielded enough to cover the freight
ebarges. It is a fact that a well-known
fruit-grower in the Saanich district offered an orchard of good apples at $1 a tree
to anyone who would gather tlieni. And
all this in the face of an apple show in
Vancouver which is a world-heater and in
which Vancouver Island fruit has taken
one of the first prizes. Surely here is food
for reflection and work for a Minister of
Agriculture.
BUILDING BY-LAWS
The recent fire has concentrated public attention upon the subject of building
(•(instruction, and especially upon the authority whicli the City possesses to impose
restrictions for the public safety. Anyone
who studies the existing By-laws will
speedily discover that the actual control
of civic authority amounts to very lil tie,
and that tliere is room for very extensive
alterations in this direction. As matters
stand at present it is possible to erect a
wooden building right in the heart of the
business section, as evidenced by lhe block
now being built near tbe Empress Theatre,
lt is possible to build a ramshackle flrctrap
like ihat which disfigures the south-east
corner of Cook and Fort, provided you
cover il over with a ihin metal veneer and
two coals of paint. Of course, it may be
objected lo this criticism thai the latter
building is outside lhe business section,
but it is in such a position as to endanger
all lhe near-by residences if it once caught
lire. The Week understands ihat the City
Solicitor, the City Engineer and the Building Inspector are all busily engaged on a
new set of By-laws dealing with this question, They cannot too quickly bring their
deliberations to a conclusion and invest
somebody witb authority lo place an effective control upon the vagaries of those
who are so indifferent to lhe public safety.
Whilst on the subject of building and fires
if may be well In point out that lhe extra
money paid for insurance mi defective
structures, often represents far more than
the interest on lhe additional outlay which
would hc required to make thein safe.
Take the case of lhe new Pither iv. Leiser
Block, whicii is one of the best structures
in the AVest and which would be a credit
to any city. The rate of insurance on tllis
building is 75 cents, while the rate ou
the Five Sisters Block was $1.75,
and that was by no means the highest
rated block iu tlie city. When the high
pressure water system is fully installed and
available it is probable that a block such
as the Pither iV- Leiser could be insured for
50 cents, and nothing could more strongly
emphasize the importance and value of
fireproof erections.
THE WATER SUPPLY
The AVeek has been asked to express
an opinion as to the effect of the salt
water system on the recent fire. There
are so many points involved that it would
not bc safe to express any decided view
beyond saying that the highest stream
thrown by the hose which was attached to
thc salt water feed did not reach more
than (it) feet vertically, and since it was
officially announced that this branch of
the Service registered a pressure of 1(10
pounds at the plant, it is obvious that
many things must have happened between
the engine and its delivery point. A
pressure of KiO pounds should under favorable conditions give a safe working head
of at least 200 feet. That it failed to do
so was, of course, due in part to the friction in the hose and the nozzle. It may or
may not have been due also to defective
suction, but in any event it would lie well
to have an expert opinion on the subject
of hose and nozzles. There is a loss that
requires explanation and the cause is not
very clear.
THE SONGHEES' RESERVE
There is jubilation on every band at the
settlement of the Songhees' Reserve question. If Mr. .1. S. II. Miatson were not a
very modest man he would be in danger of
requiring larger headgear. Of course,
there are a few "kickers" including the ten
Indian women, who protested against being moved on. But, however unwilling,
these ladies had to submit to tlieir lords
and masters. No doubt, in time they will
become reconciled to living a couple of
miles further out. An objection has been
raised that it is a pity to surrender any
portion of the water front on Esquimalt
Barbour, in view of the re-establishment of
a navy there, and no doubt this objection
is well grounded, bill the objectors should
remember that there were two parties to
the bargain and that neither Mr. Matson
nor the Qovernment could force the Indians into any arrangement, and unless Ihe
new site met with iheir approval they
would not have consented to leave the old
Reserve. 11 was reasonable ihat lhe now
Reserve should have some water front, and
under lhe circumstances The Week believes that the arrnngemonl is the best thai
could havc been made. As tn the argument
thai properly iu lhe neighbourhood nf lhe
new Reserve will be depreciated in value,
that may be admitted, but some sacrifice
had In be made mi both sides in order In
obtain possession of the nld Reserve. The
Indians have sacrificed their personal convenience and all iheir sentimental considerations. The property owners may sacrifice a little in nne direction, bui it is more
than made up by lhe general development
made possible directly by the settlemeiil nf
this troublesome question.

At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUIMQBR
I wonder why it is that when the
Moving Pictures have anything to do
with the American Army in action
they invariably depict the heroic
troops running into battle carrying a
flag. It cannot be that thc Americans who consider themselves so far
ahead of the times in all matters,
really keep up this obsolete practice.
But for some reason or other the flag
is always in evidence. My own belief
is that it is introduced merely that
the hero may have an opportunity of
making a grand-stand play and recapturing the standard in the last act.
* *   *
There are lots of other things
whicii 1 wonder about. For instance,
why do fruiterers leave their fruit
displayed on the ground where the
boxes of apples and other luscious
fruits afford a public convenience to
all the dogs in town. Much has been
written about germs floating about
in air which are liable to find a lodgment in articles exposed to the heavens and I suppose that we have to
take our chances in that respect, but I
do think that it should bc illegal to
place edibles where they can be
sniffed at by our canine population.
* *   *
There can be little doubt but that
the new Liquor License Act and its
strict enforcement has not succeeded
in checking drunkenness on Sundays.
I have seen just as many intoxicated
men walking the streets on the First
day of the week during the past
month or so as were in evidence before the passing of the new law, nor
is the reason far to seek. If a man
is in the habit of taking a drink every
day and knows that he can't get it on
Sundays, he takes a bottle home with
him and consumes infinitely more than
he would do if he had to buy it by the
glass. Why on earth the English law
cannot be adopted in Canada is something that passes my comprehension.
It is found to work well there; no
hardship is worked on anyone and it
docs away with the need for buying
the "mickey." Men who havc houses
of tlieir own usually havc a cellar,
and being married men and for the
most part possessing a family, they
havc natural interests and restrictions
to their appetites which find no counterpart in the lives of those who arc
merely roomers, sojourning in a
strange land and with absolutely
nothing to do on Sunday. They may
be regular church-goers, but church
at the most will only take up three
hours in the day anil a man need not
be a teetotaller even if he be an car-
nest Christian. Of course he can
buy a drink with his meals, though
the reformers tried hard to prevent
him doing that, but many men, and
good men, too, are accustomed to take
more than tllis. So they buy a bottle
and having nothing in particular to do
they drink more of it than they
should and the consequence is that
they cither lie in bed in a comatose
condition or they walk through the
streets directly proving that the law
cannot make a man sober. So many
men leading absolutely sober and decent lives havc made similar remarks
tn mc that   I  feci that there must bc
something in my argument.

I am always sorry when a public
holiday turns out to be wet. There
are so many people who depend on
these holidays 'almost entirely for
their recreation and their disappointment must be great. And yet it is a
curious thing how often we see this
happen. However, though last Monday was wet everybody seemed to be
cheerful and the crowds which
thronged the various theatres in the
evening seemed thc reverse of woebegone. The Skating-Rink on Fort
Street which opened on that day was
visited by a merry crowd who evidently enjoyed the excellent arrangements made for their benefit. A
Skating-rink is a splendid winter resort, as it gives pleasure and exercise
to many who would otherwise have
nothing to do on dreary days. It is
sincerely to be hoped that the estab-'

From time immemorial the Englishman has been associated with a cold
bath.    He was invariably represented
as carrying a travelling tub with him
whereby   he   excited   the   ridicule  of
the nations.    Now that baths arc a
necessary adjunct    to    every    house
there  is  no  need  for  the  Briton  to
take  this   necessary   precaution,   but
the cold tub still    seems   to   arouse
comment and amusement.   Why this 1
should bc I cannot say, but the practice would appear to be the exception
rather  than  the rule  in  every place
outside the Old Country. I think that
on the whole people here bathe more
than they do at home, but they pre- j
fer hot baths.   There is no doubt that j
the hot bath is more cleansing than j
the cold, and  the latter is  not    in-'
dulged in so much for the sake of j
getting   clean,  but  as   a   refreshing
commencement  for  the   day's   work, 1
However this does not seem to strike
the average Canadian or Amrican and
the cold douche cannot be said to be
a national institution.   "Other people,
other opinions," but give me my cold
plunge and thc hot bath can be relegated to a back place.

It has come to be the custom to estimate ventriloquists by degree of
ability, so similar have come to be
their "acts" in every feature save, possibly stage setting and wardrobe.
There are a dozen of them of note
in vaudeville, but the performance of
one is much like the performance of
another. The one exception to the
rule is Alf. Camm who, with "Theira"
and "Chuck" is now touring the Sullivan and Considine circuit, and will
be at the Grand Monday. Than
Camm there is no more clever ventriloquist and certainly there is none
more "different."
It is difficult to choose words to
express the peculiar excellence of the
violin playing of Romain. He is a
master of technique yet his capacity
for expression is even more notable.
His tones are remarkable for their
volume, but he sacrifices none of their
sweetness or any of his wonderful
sympathy. Notwithstanding that he
dresses in character and that many of
his selections are popular he may
rightly claim the title of virtuoso.
Besides the above acts there will
be The Dancing Brown Boy, With
Reckless Feet, who will stage the
dancing sensation of the year, and
there are the regular features of Mr.
Price and the pictures.
The World and His Wife
William Faversham will present
Charles Frederic Nirdlinger's great
play, "The World and His Wife," at
the Victoria Theatre Monday, Nov. 7.
Scandal and its far reaching effect on
the innocent is the theme of the play.
The story deals with the household
of Don Julian, in Madrid. Don Julian, a rich banker lives in luxury
with a charming wife, Teodora, and
a part of his household there is Don
ErlicSto, a loyal, true friend of both
of them. But the gossips of Madrid
are unable to understand, and there
has been a good deal of unpleasant
gabble. The three interested parties
talk the situation over frankly. They
laugh at it all, but Ernesto has seen
that in the face of the gossip the only
thing for him to do is to leave Madrid. He has packed up and is going; but the tragedy of it all has
moved too swiftly. When Ernesto
goes out to purchase his tickets the
insult is hurled at him in a public
cafe, by a notorious bully, one of the
best swordsmen in Spain. Ernesto
knocks him down, and a duel is arranged. But in the meantime, Tedora
has unfortunately heard that her husband and Ernesto have quarreled, and
she conies in her anxiety to Ernesto's
room. Julian considers that it is his
place to defend his wife's honor; he
takes Ernesto's place and is wounded.
He comes to Ernesto's room, and
there finds his wife. Teodora might
have remained in hiding, but as her

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Mme. Liza Lehmann
Mme. Liza Lehmann stands today
among the foremost of England's famous song writers. As a composer,
her work is full of strong expression,
moving pathos, and, when she feels
so moved, an irresistibly delicious and
dainty humor, everything she writes
bearing lhe stamp of a strongly marked and intensely artistic nature.
Liza Lehmann was born in London, thc daughter of Rudolf Lehmann, the eminent artist, whose
"Hundred Pencil Drawings of Celebrities," signed by themselves, was
purchased by llic British Museum.
Her maternal grandfather was Robert
Chambers of Edinburg, author of
"Vestiges of Creation" and founder,
with his brother, of "Chambers Journal" and the big publishing house of
Chambers.
It was the mother's ambition to
have her daughter become a professional singer. Thc child early showed
her musical tendencies, composing
little things and singing them to thc
cocks and hens in the back yard,
when, as she tells us in her own
charming language, she "could not
stifle the music and felt the need of
a vent!"
Jenny Lind heard her sing one day,
at about this period, and said:
"If God gives me thc strength, some
day I should like to teach that child."
When she reached the age for
study, however, her mother's health
became so delicate that Mme. Lehmann accompanied her to the south
of France. Here her lirst serious
vocal work commenced, under the
mother's instruction, a task for whicii
she was eminently fitted, as she had
studied under thc best teachers of the
day.   The elder Mme. Lehmann never
appeared in public, but a number of
songs published over the initial! "A.
L." are her contribution to music.
Several  years  were  passed  in  this
manner, the winters in France study-
i ing with  her mother, and the sum-
: mcrs in  England, where Jenny  Lind
; helped her with advice and permitted
her to be present when she gave her
vocal   lessons.     Later   on   her   work
i was continued under Signor Alberto
Randegger,  and  her  debut  as a  so-
l prauo  was  made  with  great  success
' in London at a Monday Popular concert.   Composition was studied under
Rannkilde of Rome, Frcudcnbcrg of
Wiesbaden, and llamish MacCunn of
London.
Mme. Lehmann's public work as a
singer covered a period of nine years.
During this time she was in great
demand all over England, and Joachim engaged her for his Philharmonic Concerts in Berlin. At this
period she made the acquaintance of
Mme. Schumann, who heard her sing
in London and invited her to Frankfort for three weeks, that she might
instruct her in the traditions of her
husband's songs.
But she tells us that in spite of her
friends and her success, she was not
happy in this, life, that she suffered
from nervousness when singing in
public and longed to devote herself
to composing, for which she could
not lind time in her busy singer's life.
In 1894 she married Herbert Bedford, an English artist, also an accomplished musician. After this she gladly gave up her public work-, and has
since devoted herself exclusively to
composition.
Her music touches all chords, from
grave to gay. In the cycle of "Nonsense Songs" from Alice in Wonderland, Mine. Lehmann has provided a
treat as rare as it is delightful and
so aptly has she caught the spirit of
Lewis Carroll's immortal work, that
music and book might almost havc
been written by the same person.
But it is by her wonderful setting
for the selections from the Rubaiyat
of Omar Khayyam, called "In a Persian Garden" that Liza Lermann is
best known. This was also her first
work  of any length,  and  on  it  she
lavished all the wealth of her rich
imagination and rare artistry. Many
lengthy and critical analyses have
been written of this composition,
whicii must be considered as a musical classic of supreme importance, in
every way worthy of the celebrated
poem that inspired it.
It is interesting to note, in her own
modest biography of her public life,
that she speaks warmly of its reception   in   America:
"It was the American public," she
says, "that took it up so warmly, and
now that it has gone around the
world, 1 still regard America as the
Persian Garden's Fairy Godmother, to
the kindness of whose reception I
owe everything." From this beginning Mme. Lehmann has gone ou till
today her songs are the most popular
of all the modern composers, her
thorough and practical knowledge of
vocal resources and effects giving her
work exceptional finish and symmetry. As a writer of classicly beautiful
and perfect music, she must take high
rank, while thc wealth and poetry of
her imagination place her among the
world's great musicians.
Professor Dickinson of Philadelphia says of her Persian Garden:
"Liza Lehmann has produced a work
which, as a contribution to the ever-
rising fame of Omar Khayyam, must
bc given a place beside thc vivid illustrations of Elihu Vcdder."

MEXICO!
The Greatest Mining Country in the World
Stands First in Silver, and Third in Gold Production
We are Largely Interested in one of the Richest Gold Producing Districts in the
State of Sonora* Should you desire full information call and see us* Mr. Hind
a well known Victoria Engineer gives the following report of his investigations:
Victoria, B. C, 6th August, 1910.
TO THE V. SONORA MINING SYNDICATE, Victoria:
Gentlemen,—I beg to report that I have at your request completed an investigation covering a large area of
the District of Altar, State of Sonora, in the Republic of
Mexico, having particular reference in such work to the
Placer Fields and existing conditions of the District.
I find that there are a number cf there fields, the best
known being The Las Palomas, San Perfecto, Las Norias,
Quitobac, Sonoyta, La Cieniguilla, Boludo, San Rafael,
Santa Rosa, La Durasno and several smaller ones.
These placers are by no means a new discovery, but
have been worked for probably 200 years, as is evidenced
by the profusion of old shafts, surface workings, ancient
towns and other signs of one-time activity.
A number of these fields were visited and the ground
inspected, and in every instance it is interesting to note
that there is a system of gold-bearing quartz veins in the
hills of the vicinity, these without doubt being the feeders for the placer grounds.
The general conditions have been eminently favorable
for the erosion of these veins, and in fact such erosion has
taken place to the extent of probably hundreds of feet.
During this process of erosion the gold liberated from the
veins has been deposited with the gravels on the lower
benches, thus forming deposits of varying values and
thickness, and subsequently owing to he presence of lime
in the percolating waters a gradual process of cementation has taken place, and it is owing to this cementing
that only a comparatively small amount of the deposits
have been worked.
From the earliest days of the country the Yaqui and
Papago Indians have been prosecuting their search for
the yellow metal, and in the District there art thousands
of acres that have been worked over by them down to the
cemented gravels. Owing to their lack of machinery and
appliances they were only able to work the loose surface
deposits, or such portions of the cements as were abnormally rich, and whilst there are no records of the amounts
taken out that can be relied upon, it is estimated that
hundreds of millions of dollars have been won.
So far as it is possible to judge the conditions in the
cemented gravels have been practically the same as in the
loose overburden, in which case it is conceded that the
majority of these known fields will give large returns
when these cements are worked.
Owing to the lack of water, and the difficulty so far
experienced in satisfactory dry crushing, there has been
but little real work done in recent years, or at sny rate
until, at Boludo, Mr. Mitt Quenner devised his pulverizer.
This is a revolving barrel-shaped grizzly, on trommels, the inside being fitted with steel hammers or slugs
on chain links and attached to the centre shaft, and revolving at high speed.
This machine breaks the cements from the rock or
boulders, and a portion of the latter is ejected as valueless, thus making a preliminary concentration of values,
and the cement and finer particles of rock are pulverized
and the gold freed. The resultant pulp is then treated
by being run over a "dry washer," a somewhat crude concentrating device capable of considerable improvement,
and the gold saved thereon. The saving by these washers
is fair, but not close, but with some slight improvements
Engineer's Report
made to it, I think the machine will be capable of making a high extraction if carefully worked, and taking into
consideration their original cost and the cost of operation
i would be hard o replace them entirely, although if necessary further machines of an approved type could be installed to increase the saving.
The Quenner Pulverizer has a proven capacity of
over 0 tons of cemented gravels per hour, and requires
less than 30 h. p. to operate it.
The country is generally a dry one and water is
scarce. This condition has made it necessary in most instances to treat the ores by dry methods, and has undoubtedly developed the present efficiency of such methods. With gasoline or oil engines, and dry pulverizers
and washers the lack of water has no particular terror
for the operators, as for camp purposes it is always easy
at small expense to obtain such quantities as may be required.
The climate is favorable for mining, as there is very
little wet or cold weather, and although at times extremely hot I did not notice that work was in any way interfered with.
The supply of labor is plentiful, the Mexicans and Indians being excellent miners, in fact, this seems to be
their onl ymeans of livelihood, and wages range from
$1.00 to $1.5 per day for native labor. Skilled labor is
paid for at about the same rate as prevails in our own
camps.
I made arrangements for you for the purchase on
favorable terms of an exploration of approximately 1,000
pertinencias (2,500 acres) covering a portion of the well
known San Rafael placer fields.
Owing to the nature of the placer deposits it is impossible without going to great expense, to obtain a fair
average of the values, and more particularly so as some
of the gold is very coarse, nuggets from $1.00 to $5.00
being not uncommon, whilst fro malmost every placer
field mentioned there are well authenticated reports of
nuggets of large size being taken, many of them being
valued at hundreds of dollars.
The most prospecting work done in any one place
has been carried out at Las Palomas, by R. K. Neill, of
Spokane, and in his report he estimated average values of
$0.70 per yard for a depth of 50 feet over a prospected
area of 100 acres, with an estimate of $6,000,000 worth of
gold contained in this prospected area, and this he states
without taking into account the enriched gravels on bedrock, running from 1 to 7 feet thick, for which he got
values of approximately $30.00.
Mr. Neill's estimate of working costs is $0.12^ per
yard, using the dry methods as adopted there for up to
date practice.
At Boludo three companies are working on bedrock,
and whilst no definite returns can be obtained, I penson-
ally watched several of the cleanups, and found that their
ground was averaging from $7.00 to $10.00 per ton.
The San Rafael Placers, under option to the company, have been worked over on the surface by Mexicans
and some prospect, and working shafts have been sunk in
the "argamasa" or cemented gravels and values as high
as $8.00 per ton were obtained.
The thickness of the gravels here is as yet an undetermined factor, but here are large areas which can be
seen to be from 20 or 30 feet upwards in thickness. It
would be difficult to estimate the actual values contained
in this ground, but there are known places in the gravel
that will contain not less than $1.00 per ton, and on one
of these selected places I should advise that a complete
outfit be installed. The total cost of such an outfit, including Quenner Pulverizer, gasoline engine, conveyors
and washers will not exceed $7,000, and as practically no
provision has to be made for the native workmen employed the further sum of $500 would be sufficient for
preliminary headquarters for the management and white
employees.
As a low estimate of the values contained, I will assume that the first place on which the equipment is
placed will yield $0.60. The cost of mining and treatment
should not exceed at an outside estimate $0.25, which
would give a net profit of $0.35 per ton, and the machine
will treat 400 tons per day. There would thus be a net
profit of $140.00 per day or upwards of $3,5oo per month.
I should further' recommend that a sum of not less
than $6,000 be devoted to the purchase of a Quenner
Prospecting Mill and equipment, and that the whole of
the Company's property be gone over and thoroughly
sampled. After such areas of pay gravel as may exist
there are definitely located, it would then be for the Directors to decide whether to install furher machines and
so increase he output, or to sell or lease the ground so
proved to contain pay values. By such prospecting and
sampling any ground considered not to have sufficient
values (and in this great area we may safely assume that
portions will be practically of no value to us) could be
abandoned, instead of being carried on and taxes paid
therefor.
The annexed extract from the "Mining World" of
July gth, 1910, will be of undoubted interest to you, and I
therefore append it for your perusal:
"AMERICAN OPERATIONS IN MEXICO.
"In 1823 there was passed the first act enabling for-
eigenrs to own and operate mines in Mexico and in the
following year three great English corporations accepted
the invitation, being the United Mexican Association, he
Anglo-Mexican Associaion and the Adventure Co., the
three practically confining their activities to the camps of
Guanajuato and Pachuca. Now there are about 1200 legitimate mining companies of outside origin and control operating profitably in Mexico, besides many others engaged in developing ground that is promising in appearance,
and still other concerns unincorporated.
"The majority of all these are American, and the result that, despite the fabulous sums that have been taken
from the ground throughout the centuries, since the Cor-
tez era, Mexico now ranks fifth among the countries of
the world in production of lead, fourth in gold, second
in copper and first in silver. It is only within the last few
years that any serious attention was paid to the mining
of gold in the reoublic, but now there are several camps,
heretofore rated as strictly silver producers, which are
scoring greater yields in the yellow than in the white
metal."
In conclusion I beg to say that the ground obtained
by you gives great promise of being a large producer of
Gold (which is the only metal on which the price never
varies) and assured careful management I can with confidence recommend it as a legitimate enterprise capable of
making large returns upon the money invested.

"Think- you the town is doomed?"
said I to my friend Socrates, while
we watched the red flames sweep
through the mighty dry goods house
of David.
■'Fear not, trembling one," lie replied, "the gods will protect these
people who truly believe in their protection rather than in their own puny
efforts."
"It is even so," I said in wonder.
"Look you yonder, seest thou that
puny stream of water playing upon
thc Driard? See, it reaches but to
the second storey, and lo, it is the
third which is afire."
"No matter. Have we not a salt
water system and a new fire chief?
Though verily his coming and going
is likely to cause destruction on the
streets, pcr-.idventure he level some of
you to the ground."
Just then I caught sight of another
dear friend of mine whose dwelling
place was in thc heart of thc doomed
building. "Friend," 1 quoth, "has't
saved aught?"
"Yea, all." he replied, "even my
great grandmother. I carried her
out."
I complimented him on his bravery,
but Socrates with a wise smile drew
forth from my friends pocket the ancient lady's photograph. At that moment, my attention was distracted by
the loud cries of the populace for salt
water. "Where is the man," they
cried, ''who will unlock the floods of
deliverance?"
"Distress not yourselves," said Socrates, "lie will be here in due course.
Perchance the guardians of thc city
have hindered him lest pcradventure
he hc an impostor." And it was even
so that they had greatly delayed his
coming. And there wcre divers people laden with tobacco, jewels, trousers and other articles whicli they
conveyed   to   places   of   safety   from
whicii they subsequently, in many
cases, disappeared.
My attention was now attracted to
a solid and fireproof looking gentleman of inscrutable countenance who
was gazing solemnly at the merciless
flames which enveloped the old historic block of romantic name.
"They're gone," he sighed, "all the
old records that the city fathers will
so grieve to lose."
"If they be the doin's of the city
feythers," quoth Patrick passing by,
"begorra, its glad they ought to bc."
Many other captious remarks did I
hear. "The town's dead, anyway,"
said the man from Vancouver.
"Not dead, but sleeping," replied
Socrates. Then sang the man from
Vancouver,
"Victorians, awake, salute the happy
morn.
Vour rotten old Fivc Sisters block
Burned down before the dawn."
"lias it?" exclaimed the Victoria
man who was watching the fire from
Broad Street. "Great Caesar's Ghost!
and I had a whole hour in which I
might have saved my stuff!" But the
world goes merrily on.
Footpads Hold Up Archbishop
The following despatch to thc archbishop's palace, St. Boniface, created
consternation recently in Winnipeg:
Meredith, New Hampshire.—A sensation was created here by thc hold-up
by a gang of footpads of Archbishop
I.angevin of Manitoba. His grace
was here in connection with educational work, lie had parted from
some clerical companions and was
proceeding homeward when a masked
man sprang forward and al the point
of a revolver demanded money. The
archbishop retained his composure
and tried to reason with the assailant,
who refused lo listen, Threatening
companions were al hand and the
money was given over. Thc occurrence was promptly reported lo the
police and arrests of suspects followed.
"GOOD GRACIOUS"
Said the hen, when she discovered a porcelain egg in the nest, "I
shall be a bricklayer next."
Things arc not always what they seem. This is especially
applicable to champagne.
G. II. Mumm & Co. have always aimed to furnish an absolutely pure champagne of the very best quality, the "Extra Dry"
being of its type unexcelled, while the "Selected Brut" is pronounced by connoisseurs to be the very finest brut champagne
extant.
When you order champagne, don't be a hen.   Don't be fooled.
It is easy to get the best.
Just specify "G. li. Mumm & Co.'s Champagne" and see that
you gel the pink capsule and that the name "G. II. Mumm & Co."
is registered in full upon the bottle of "Extra Dry." None genuine
without.

May Have Nine Millions
Thc Census and Statistics Branch
estimates that on March 31, when the
fiscal year closed, Canada had a population ol 7,849,781, il being estimated
thai there was a growth of 31)5,01)0
over the year previous. In detail the
department estimates the population
as  follows:—Maritime   Provinces,   1,-
060,678; Quebec, 2,124,834; Ontario,
2.687,861; Manitoba, 496,111; Saskatchewan, 377,590; Alberta, 321,862;
British Columbia ,321,733; unorganized territories, 59,050. Immigration not
shown by provinces, 111,862. These
calculations indicate that ihe 1911
census will show Canada lo have a
population of between eight and nine
millions. 10

Do You Know ?
Do you know how much time you are wasting in chopping "kindling" for coal or wood stoves and carrying dusty
coal or ashes backwards and forwards? Do you know that
a kitchen where a Gas Stove is in use is always clean and
tidy, spic and span? Quick as wink you have your fire
without trouble of building—turn off the gas tap and it is
out; drudgery, worry and money saved. A Gas Range
means the economy of your great-grandmother, combined
with the science of modern invention. Let us show you
how easy and how inexpensive it is to cook with Gas. Do
you know that we can sell you a good Cooking Stove as
low as $20?
Do you know what comfort there is in igood Gas Heat?
Do you know that without any fuss or bother you can
quickly warm a cold room or a chilly hallway with a Gas
Radiator or a Gas Grate? There may be some particular
room in your house that you cannot heat easily with a

CONSISTENCY
There is in Victoria a man of professional rank who has attained wide
notoriety as a moral reformer, temperance lecturer and contagious diseases expert. Hc may believe that
charity begins at home; clearly he
does not believe that missionary work
should begin at home. Having several suites of rooms to let in his offices he has allowed them to be rented
to a number of men who are habitual
topers and who make night hideous
for the more peaceable tenants to
such an extent that the latter will be
forced to leave the premises. The explanation is that the topers pay a
higher rent for the privilege of being
allowed to let off their superfluous
energy, begotten of alcoholic fires.
But what about the consistency of the
landlord? Again one is reminded of
the old proverb "Charity covers a
multitude of sins" and apparently so
does a high rent.

will be planted next year. These
fruit trees arc made up of apple, plum,
pear, peach and cherry, but the apple

As electric car systems are increas-
lg their mileage every clay we see
jwer people who take walking exer-
ise. The usefulness of cars cannot
e denied, but there are some men
nd many women who never go any-
rhere unless they go by car. It
eems to me that the average mortal
ikes no exercise at all most days in
ie week. On Saturday afternoons
nd on Sundays he may play games,
ut the steady walking day after day
d and from the office has been done
way with. Now this cannot be good
Dr the race.    Cars are all very well
I wet weather or when one is in a
urry, but there are thousands of
ases where they are used simply and
Dlely because a man is too lazy to
•alk, when he would be all the heal-
lier for the exercise.

It is satisfactory to know that Chief
lavis is doing everything possible to
revent another holocaust. Last week
was told of a rooming-house, whicii
iiall  be  nameless at present, where
II the water had to be brought in by
and; where candles were used;
■here there were no fire-escapes, and
diere everything was in excellent
ondition to start another big blaze.
asked the Chief whether he had
eard of the place and found that only
ie day before he had been down to
ispect the premises and had insisted
n necessary improvements being
lade. Prevention is better than cure
nd the man who minimises risks is
sally a more useful individual than
ie one who fights the flames.
* *   *
I am informed by an old-timer that
hen Spencer's Departmental store
•as built the Building Ispector re-
ised to pass the plans because he
esired to have a stronger partition
rick wall between the new store and
ie Victoria Book and Stationery.    I
am also informed that on the urgent
appeal of the firm the wishes of the
Building Inspector were over-ruled by
the Council. In the opinion of many
people, of whom my informant is one,
if a substantial brick wall had been
built, instead of a veneer being placed
against the old wall, the Five Sisters
Block and all the stores which were
destroyed between it and Spencer's
would have been saved. In connection with fire my attention has also
been directed to a building now going
up adjoining, and immediately north
of the Empress Theatre. I do not
lenow how far the building restrictions allow the city authorities to control the class of material used, but
this is, to all intents and purposes, a
lumber building and will be a veritable fire trap. I do not think that
this ought to be allowed in the very
heart of the business section.
*   *   *
There is another little matter in
connection with rebuilding. It is one
which has been touched on in this
column many times', the question of
the lavatory conveniences provided in
various stores for public use. I cannot conceive why these are not subject to periodical inspection by the
proper authority. It is a well known
fact that one which was used by hundreds of persons daily in a well-known
store just burnt down, reeked of tilth
and was unsanitary to the last degree. I regret to say that at the
moment of writing I have received a
message that a dear little child of
three years has been stricken with
diphtheria, which is supposed to have
been contracted in thc lavatory referred to. There are others in the
city not much better, although perhaps none quite so bad as this.
Cleansing by fire is rather a drastic]
remedy.

see Julian and convince him of his
innocence. The poison of scandal and
the. sword thrust of his enemy have
done their work. Then it is that Severe now complete master of his
brother's household, more than ever
confirmed in his belief in the truth
of his narrow suspicions and the tragedy which he has done so much to
bring about, orders Teodora out of
the house, and even goes to lay hands
on her. Ernesto now declares himself—gossip has brought reality to
what was a lie. He takes the woman
to his heart, and leaves the house
with her. This wonderful, vital theme,
gossip, has been the making of one
of the biggest plays of the age.
The Kissing Girl
With its dainty romance and ravish-
ingly tuneful melodies, "The Kissing
Girl" has lixed itself firmly in the
heart of the play-goer. Seldom has a
light opera provoked such universal
good opinion. Handsomely staged,
brilliantly costumed, and cleverly acted, the von Tilzer musical comedy
caught the public fancy from the very
start. "Thc Kissing Girl" has many
charms, but the reason for its success is thus aptly expressed in one
of Bryan's lyrics, "It's, oh, so different." At the Victoria Theatre,
Tuesday, November 8th.
Girl, Man and Game
Billy (Single) Clifford, the comedian, is headed this way. lie is blazing a trail of laughter across the
country, and he will soon be in Victoria with his new vehicle which hc
is pleased to call a musical fantasy
in two acts. Those who do not know
what a musical fantasy is, will be enlightened when "The Girl, the Man
and the Game" arrives. For the sake
of enlightenment let it be stated here
that a musical fantasy is a farce with
much music interspersed.   In this par
ticular case the central figure is a rollicking young blade, who borrows a
wife and child to deceive his doting
old uncle with money. Naturally he
gets himself into all manner of
scrapes, and his antics during this
time furnish many a hearty laugh.
Mr. Clifford plays the role of the gay
young man, and he not only affords
much fun, but he also sings a dozen
good songs. The show will be seen at
the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday,
November 9.
De Wolf Hopper
The very latest thing in musical
plays is "A Matinee Idol," in which
that most delightful of all comedians,
De Wolf Hopper, will be seen at the
Victoria Theatre on Thursday, November 10, for one night, supported by
Miss Louise Dresser and the same organization in every detail that supported him during the six months'
run of this piece at Daly's and the
Lyric Theatre in New York. "A Matinee Idol" is not like other plays; it
stands alone in its class. It was the
first of its kind to be produced in
Xew York, and its success was so
great, and came in such a bound, that
it is certain to be a fore-runner for
many others of a similar nature. It
is a screamingly funny comedy with
a musical setting and not the old style
musical comedy. Its plot is clean
cut, coherent and reasonable, while
the musical numbers arc so closely
interwoven with the piece itself that
they form part of its structure and
are in no sense of the word interpolations.
THE CANADIAN MAGAZINE
It is a noteworthy fact that Gold-
win Smith took a peculiar pride in
contributing quite frequently to the
pages of The Canadian Magazine,
and it is gratifying to see that since
his death the editor of this excellent
national publication has been able to
secure from Mr. Arnold Haultain,
the literary executor of "The Sage
of The Grange" a number of further
contributions. The first appears in
the  November  issue  under  the  title
"My Early Connection With London
Journalism," and, according to the
announcement for December there
will bc another article, entitled "Memories of My Home."
The Canadian Magazine has a wide
and well deserved reputation for the
excellence o fits poetry; and it is
worthy of note that Canadian singers
are taking a front place among the
writers of current poetry. Note the
appeal to universal sympathy and the
beauty of expression in the following
verses by a well-known Canadian
writer, Mrs. Isabel Ecclestone Mackay, which appeared in the November
number of The Canadian Magazine.
Give Me a Day
Give me a day, my beloved, that I
may set
A jewel in my heart—I'll brave regret,
If, on the morrow, you shall say "forget.
One golden day when dawn shall
blush to noon
And noon incline to dark, and, over-
soon,
My joy lie buried 'neath a rounded
moon.
Only a  day—it's   worth   you scarce
could tell
From  other   days; but   in   my   life
'twill dwell
An oasis with palm trees and a well!
—Isabel Ecclestone Mackay, in The
Canadian Magazine for November.
Tough
Lawyer—You  have a very liard case.
Burglar—So  did     the    vault,    but  I
cracked lt all right, all right.
Once Wa« Enough
They met by chance,
They'd never met before;
They met but once,
And she was smitten sore.
They never met again—
Don't care to, I allow;
They met but once—
The auto and the cow.
Sky pilots out of a job should write to
tlie airship companies. 12
