A British Columbia Review,
Published at Victoria,  B. 6.
Vol. JII.
THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, DECEMBEE 81,-1
THE PASSING OF A PIONEER
On Thursday morning six of the most
notable of British Columbia's worthies
carried the mortal remains of one of their
oldest friends into the Roman Catholic
Cathedral, Victoria. To mention their
names is to recall the early chapters of
the history of the Province; for there Avas
not one man in that company Avho had not
made history. Their names may mean
less to the present generation than to old-
timers who still sni'A'iA'e, but Avhen the
< present and many future generations baA'e
' followed Frank ltichter of Keremeos
across the Great Divide, the names of his
| pall-bearers will be treasured in the Provincial Archives and noted by their children. No greater honour could be done
to the memory of any man than that lie
should be , convoyed to his last resting-
1 place by*Hon. C. E. Pooley, Hon. Edgar
Dewdney, George Gillespie, W. C; Ward,
J. B. GraA'es and H. D. Helmcken; and
these illustrious citizens never assisted at
the funeral obsequies of a better, a
straighter or a truer man than Frank
Richter. Born in Austria, emigrating as
a young man to the States, passing through
Western ranching States, drifting into
California and Washington and thence into the Garden Valley of British Columbia,
he has been for half-a-century the uncrowned king of the Similkameen; one
of the pioneer ranchers of the Province;
one Avho lived and died a rancher; one
avIio has done more than any other to
maintain the best traditions of yeomanry
and to demonstrate the possibilities and
the value of British Columbia as an agricultural Province. ..From the great Cathedral he is being borne by loving hands to
the valley Avhich has been truly consecrated by his life's AA'ork, and Avhere those
who carry him Avill not bow their heads
in sorroAV, though their hearts may be
breaking, for he trod the fields and ranges
of the Similkameen as became a free-born,
honourable, independent man with his
head in the air; and those he has left may
Avell lift their heads in conscious pride of
a heritage and a memory which any man
might Avell eiiA'y.
THE RUGBY MATCHES
At the time of writing the third and
deciding match of the series still remains
to be played, and with the result so eA'en
up to date it is not easy to pick the winner.
The result of a.close observation of the tAvo
matches would lead one to expect Victoria
to emerge triumphant by a narrow'margin.
It is true that the Berkeley team is bigger
and faster and invariably gets the best of
the line-out. The men possess one other
advantage, due no doubt to constant practice together, and the perfection of an organized 'method, viz., that they ahvays
seem to knoAV Avhere' their1 men are, which
enables them to gi-t rid bf the ball quickly
and to pass with comparative safety. Here
superiority ends. The Victoria team in
spite of tlieir inferiority in weight have so
far had the best of the scrum Avork. Jn
loose dribbling they are so much superior
that there is ho comparison and in tackling they also have a decided advantage.
In fact, it is doubtful if the California
men have ever been tackled so effectively.
'But behind_these conspicuous ;a'jn'aiitages
the Victoria team possesses one other,
Avhich is invaluable and whicii has carried
to victory many a team inferior to its
upponent both in strength and skill; that
is, ".grit." One* of the. pluckiest'things
ever seen on a football field was, the dogged
■grind with whieh the Victoria men
opposed the brutal tactics of their heavier
.opponents in the fii\st, game... Rarely, has i
anything more disgraceful been seen than
the manner in which the. vi-sitors conduct-
£d themselyes.^Thcy violated nearly CA'ery
rule of the game and did so without the
slightest regard for their opponents. Deliberate hacking and attempts to injure
Avith the knees in the scrum characterized
the game throughout, and it is little short
of a miracle that some of the Victoria men
Avere not crippled for life. Their self-
control under the circumstances was deserving of the highest praise and the fact
that they stood such a "gruelling" for
nearly an hour and a half Ayithout making
any attempt to retaliate, arid finally Avore
down their opponents without allowing
them to score, fully justifies the-*confidence
which is generally felt in their ability to
win out in.the final match through sheer
"grit." In vieAV of the excellent game
played by the visitors on Thursday, it is
more than ever a puzzle Avhy they adopted
such disreputable tactics on Monday. In
the opinion of the best judges they Avould
have Avon the first match if they had
played in the form which they showed on
Thursday; their win on the latter day,
A\rhile genuine, was extremely lucky, and
it Avas not due to them in any sense on
the balance of the play. Since the team
has come in for so much censure it is perhaps only fair to say that the three-quarter
and back division should not be classed

has spent all bis life in Victoria
lished a splendid record in the public service, and who does not lack even the "property qualifications" Avhich Mr. Turner
considers so important. If The AVeek
thought it would be of any avail it Avould
appeal to Mr. Turner to exercise a little
patience, and to be content with occupying an aldermanic position on the basis of
his "property qualifications" until he has
demonstrated his fitness for a higher position. Mr. Turner's reiterated avoAval that
he is assured of the support of influential
men from all sections of the city will hardly hold Avater, and if he is really living
in "a fool's Paradise" he Avill be quickly
undeceived Avhen he sees the names of
nearly all the leading merchants arid
tradesmen, as Avell as the recognized representatives of labour, on the petition to Mr.
SteAvart.
THE ST. DENIS
Every one avIio read it will appreciate
the admirable letter Avritten to the press
by Capt. Johnson in defence of his friend
(.apt. Davis of the ill-fated St. Denis.
Some land-lubbers arrived at the conclusion  that  the  St.  Denis  had  foundered
because she Avas over-loaded with coal, and
Avith the forwards in this connection. They the Victoria Times, jumping at the oppor-
played a fair, gentlemanly game, and the tunity to point a moral, even at the cost
full-back distinguished himself especially, of a dead man's reputation, Avrote a comas one of the most brilliant players ever minatory article on "Ambition," in Avhich
seen in Victoria. It would not be f'airT0""nt had the hardihood to declare that Capt.
ignore the splendid work of the referee, Davis desired to make a record by taking
Mr. Alexis Martin; it is certain that no
other referee in the Province could have
handled the games as satisfactorily. It is
true that he erred a little on the side of
leniency to the visitors in the first match,
and probably he would be the first to admit
it, but, it Avas no doubt due to a desire to
sIioav every fairnesl to a team Avhich is
permitted to play a, very different game in
California from that Ai'hich is authorized
by the rules of Rugby or whicli would he
tolerated in Victoria. When the series is
completed an opportunity Avill be furnished for commenting uppn the most important and popular Rugby Carnival
Avhich Victoria has enjoyed. The public
support has been splendid, and Monday's
game should draw a crowd Avhich will tax
the utmost capacity of the Oak Bay
Ground.
THE MAYORALTY
It Avas good neAvs for Victoria to learn
on Thursday that a monster petition Avas
being circulated in the hope of inducing
Alec. SteAvart to accept a nomination for
the Mayoralty. There is little doubt that
such a petition Avill be signed in tAvo days
by several thousand ratepayers wlio realize
that Mr. SteAvart is the one man aa'Iio can
rescue. the-'Juiuiicipal affairs of the City
from their present deplorable condition.
One who has always shoAvn himself alive
to the duties of citizenship, and who has
established a high reputation as a fair-
minded, progressiA'c man is hardly likely
to resist an appeal from a large body of
his 'fellow-citizens. It is greatly to bc regretted that it should haA'e been necessary
to prepare sueh a petition, a circumstance
which' is due entirely to the ill-advised
"determination of Mr. J. A. Turner to stay
in the field, if only for the purpose of
.splitting the vote. This is not A'ery high
ground for a business njign to take and
.Mr. Turner has always claimed to be a
business man. He based his candidature
on the fact that he is a large property
OAViier. He could hardly base it upon anything else,, and even so it requires a good
deal of nerve for a man who has so recently, pome, to the city tt)jput himself for-.
Avaru and spoil the chances of one who
an unusually heavy cargo from the Vancouver Island mines to Central America;
and it concluded an article conceived in
the Avorst possible taste, and based upon
the most inexcusable ignorance, by saying
that "the case Would attract little atten-
"tion A\'ere it not for thc fact that the inordinate desire to make a record Avas attempted to be gratified at the risk of so
"many human lives. Had he avoii out
"Captain Davis Ai'ould have been praised
"for his clever Avork. Kow he has failed,
"we say nothing' except to Avarn others
"against making the mistake he made. A
"man avIio is given control of the lives of
"a Avhole ship's company must be a man
"who cun control his oavii ambitious de-
"sires in the interest of his shipmates."
Capt. Johnson must surely be considered
an authority even by the Times, and he declares that lie sinv the vessel near the Outer
Wharf when she Avas loaded; he says that
she aviis not over-loaded, that there Avas no
question of establishing a record and that
the reason some people may have concluded that too much cargo had been
taken on, aviis that the construction of the
vessel aviis peculiar, and that she aviis practically top-heavy through carrying her
Avater tanks on deck; these tanks containing twenty-fivejicr cent, of the registered
tonnage. To illustrate the point he pertinently asks "what Avould be thought of
a 10,0.00-ton ocean liner which carried
,2,500 tons of cargo on deck ." The matter
may safely be left where ('apt. Johnson bus
placed, it. Meanwhile there ivill nothing but regret that the bereaved relatives of Capt. Davis, to say nothing of the relatives of the twenty seamen
avIio were lost, should have been harrowed
by the unjust aspersions of the A'ictoria
Times.

A SUGGESTION
The Week ventures to make
able suggestion to the management of that
A'cnerable organ, the Colonist. It docs so
with great respect and just a little trepidation; the former because its previous suggestions have always been accepted in the
long run; the bitter lest in the present instance there should be untimely delay.
The suggestion is tbat before inserting any
editorial comments on British politics, or
public affairs, the copy be sub
mitted to the recent acquisition to the staff
avIio has presumably been imported from
London for the express purpose of putting
the Colonist right on such matters, and
avoiding the horrible pit-falls into which
it has habitually stumbled in the past.
For riearly four years the readers of the
Colonist have had to grin and bear with
the most ludicrous presentment of Old
Country men and matters. For four years
The Week has kept on hammering aAvay
until at last, when it had almost given up
hope, it finds the justice of its criticism
conceded in the appointment of an Englishman qualified to speak on English subjects. So far his influence is noted chiefly
in the nevvs columns, which is good as far
as it goes, but, unfortunately, the editorial columns continue to be exploited for
expressing the most jejune ideas on the
present crisis, and expounding the most
impossible theories. If the management,
having made a good beginning, is sincerely
desirous of gratifying those of its readers
Avho desire to knoAV the truth, and to consider sane arguments on the vital questions at issue, it will accept the suggestion
of The Week in the spirit in which it is
offered, remembering the admonition of
the greatest of all Englishmen
"If 'twere well 'twere done
'Twere well 'twere quickly done."
THE TELEPHONE BY-LAW
The AVeek would direct the attention
of the property OAvners of A'ictoria to one
or two phases of the Telephone By-liiAV
which are Avorthy of consideration. It is
convinced that this important By-law Avas
turned doAvn before because it Avas not
sufficiently explained, and also because no
full and complete ansAver was made to the
contention that it aviis beneath the dignity
of a wealthy corporation to ask the City
to do its financing. The position is that
the City Council, and in this matter the
Council undoubtedly represents public
opinion and property interests, desires the
Telephone Company to remove all its poles
ami wires in the business district lying
betAveen the Avaterfront and Blanchard,
Fisguard and Humboldt, and place the
wires in under-ground conduits.. The
Telephone Company is under no legal obligation to do this, nor can the City compel
it. On the other hand the Company is
willing to meet the popular demand and to
do it Avithout compensation. AVhat it asks
is that the City shall borrow $100,000 and
loan it to the Telephone Company for fifty
years at the same rate of interest; the
sole advantage of this for the Telephone
Company is that it would save about one
per cent, per annum in interest charges
without encumbering its oavii property by
negotiating the loan. To The AVeek the
proposition seems to be an eminently fair
one; it costs the City nothing, because the
money will, of course be repaid, and there
can be no question of security. On the
oilier hand the Telephone Company voluntarily sacrifices many thousands of dollars worth of plant and material whicii
would be good in ils present position for
years to come. Reasonably considered the
transaction is one of mutual accommodation. The public will benefit greatly by
the removal of an eye-sore, and it must
be borne in mind that if the present opportunity be allowed to slip the Telephone
Company must of necessity keep on spending large sums to extend the present svs-
tem and so render its future abandonment
one of greater difficulty and expense.

At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNGER
Last Aveek, owing to a typographical error, a mistake was made in these
columns. I refer to the excellent work
done on Bastion Street by ''The
, urswick Paving Co." Unfortunately, this good Avork was attributed to
"The Worsfold Paving Co." I regret the mistake, the more so as 1
read the proof myself and did not
notice the error. The "Worswick
Paving Company" is entitled to all
kinds of praise for the work whicli
it has done in the Capital City of
British Columbia.
I have heard all sorts of complaints
with regard to the lighting of the
Causeway. 11 seems a remarkable
thing that Lower Johnson Street ancl
Lower Yates Street should be lighted by clusters of lamps or by strings
of electric lights, when the main
thoroughfare of Victoria is left in
comparative darkness. The lights are
tliere; why arc they not lit? It is
rather a disgraceful thing that the
principal street of a city like Victoria
should conduct her guests to her
leading hotel Avithout proper lighting
accommodation. I suppose that I
shall have to ventilate this grievance
for about three months before any
notice is taken of it; I am accustomed to this kind of treatment, but
I observe that, within the course of
time, what I say "goes".
*     *     *
Hoav did you spend Christmas? I
spent it just as I said I was going
to. I lay in bed reading till thc close
of the afternoon; I then arose and
had my Christmas dinner; later I
went to Christ Church Cathedral;
there I heard a most excellent service. Thc Venerable the Dean gave
a sermon very much to the point, but
to tell the truth, it Avas the music
which I most enjoyed. The "Introit"
Avas from thc composition of M. Guil-
mant whom I remember hearing Avhen
I Avas a boy at Repton; his brother
was our French master. I Avould like
to pay a special compliment to the
tenors of the Christ Church Cathedral
Choir; their movement in the "Magnificat" and "Nunc-Dimitis"; was
great. Then came the Carols and they
were a treat to all the croAvded
Church. Mr. Pauline is indeed to be
congratulated on the successful outcome of his strenuous Avork during
the past few Aveeks. I Avould specially
commend thc Anthem, "Once in Bethlehem of Judali," Avherein trebles,
tenors and basses distinguished themselves. In "Behold I Bring You Good
Tidings" I noticed that the trebles
ivere remarkably clear on their top
notes; the tenors wcre strong and the
soloist aoprano delighted mc with his
clear voice and his enunciation.
"Nazareth" was rendered by Mr. Wollaston; hc sang it well and contributed more than a fair share to the
success of the Christ Church Cathedral Christmas service. If every
church in thc Dominion had as energetic and conscientious a choirmaster
as Mr. Pauline there Avould be feAV
excuses on the part of non-Churchgoers. Next Sunday, being N'cav
Year's Day, thc Carols will bc repeated.

Not long ago two females, I most
certainly won't call them ladies, and
they are not lit to be dignified by the
name of women, took Iheir own horse
out of a livery stable in town and
drove it seventy-two miles. It was
reported to mc at first that thc patient animal died in its stall on its
return; I find that this is not true,
but that these foolish females fed thc
quadruped witli ice cold Avater and a
heavy meal in thc middle of its run.
Naturally, the horse became ill on
returning to itJ stall. If women
haven't any more sense than this they
had better give up driving. And yet
they ask for thc vote!
* *     *
People in the Old Country are inclined to think that the Pacific West
is a sort of uncivilized, desolate domain. If they could see Victoria at
Christmas time their eyes would be
opened a little bit wider than usual.
I doubt if there is any place in the
world where merchants, saloon and
hotel-keepers make more efforts to
imbue their customers with the
Christmas spirit by means of decorations. Victoria is notorious for her
holly; her stores are primed for the
festive season; geniality and generosity walk hand in hand and everybody
is happy. In what other tOAvn would
you find an hotel like "The Dallas"
where the manager stands champagne
for all his employees? Where else
would you find an hotel such as the
above where all old customers were
recognized as free and welcome
guests at the Christmas dinner? Victoria puts up hotels after this fashion
and there are few people avIio do not
realize that, ivhen all is said and done,
Victoria is a good place to live in.

"kicker." Of course I am; that is
Avhat I am paid for. But my "kicks"
must not be taken too seriously. It
is true that in course of time 1 have
worked some reforms in this city but
I want to make it clear to all my
readers that anything I may have said
during the past year has not been of
a personal character, but has simply
been Avritten in the interests of the
city.
* *     -;<
There is a prominent citizen in
town; he is well-known, Avell-liked,
and well recognized, both in Victoria
and Vancouver. In addition to his
professional duties he runs a farm;
he is by Avay of being a poultry
farmer on a small scale. In particular, he makes a specialty of turkeys,
and this year he had raised some
gobblers of a prize grade. Hundreds
of dollars had he spent on the fitting
education of these birds; they Avere
the pride of his life and thc joy of
his heart. Imagine then, this estimable gentleman's consternation when
he discovered his cherished bipeds
in the clutches of an equally prominent restaurant-keeper avIio purchased
them from the ranch at 32 cents a
pound. I am told that abuse Avas at
a discount; vituperation resounded 011
itself; the atmosphere greAv thick, but
the restaurant man won out because
he could prove that the Christmas
dainties had been legally sold to him
by a responsible party attached to thc
household.

Has it struck my readers that with
the dawn of a new year tliere will be
many changes in Victoria? Numerous
firms which have been a landmark for
the past quarter of a century Avill be
compelled to leave their premises and
establish themselves in another quarter of the town. To all those avIio
have to yield to this sad compulsion
on the part of hard Fate thc Lounger
extends his sympathy, coupled with
the sincere wish that they may find
business as prosperous in their iicav
habitation as in the old.

On the 21st of January a banquet
is to be held at the Empress Hotel
Victoria, rS.C, in order that the Public School men of the Old Country
may have a chance to meet each
other. For a long time this scheme
has been on the tapis but this is thc
first year it has materialized. It is
sincerely to be hoped that not only
residents in Victoria and Vancouver,
Avhose names arc on Public School
rolls will appear, but that many men
from thc Upper Country will avail
themselves of the opportunity of
meeting men in the same class of life
as themselves, some of whom they
may have met in a classic victory or
defeat on the football or the cricket
field.

After all this is "thc wild and

to think that Ave are civilized, and so

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
Victoria Theatre
Exception has been taken to thc
proposal that the city of Victoria
should subsidize a municipal theatre.
That this suggestion is absolutely
erroneous is proved by the crowded
houses which attended thc Victoria
Theatre last week. Both "The Burgomaster" and "The Wolf" attracted
large crowds and I doubt if the Victoria Opera House ever had such a
good showing in their stalls as it did
at these two performances.
New Grand Theatre
Messrs. Considine & Sullivan have
certainly selected an excellent company to appear in Victoria during
Christmas week. The Three Alver-
ettas are both comic and clever. Thc
Sterling & Chapman c'ompany appear
on the stage in Highland costume
which suits admirably; their voices
arc good and their accent proclaims
their origin. Tom and Edith Almond
are putting up a good turn on the
Government Street stage. But, when
all is said and done it must be admitted that Miss Ray Dooley and her
troupe of singers presents one of the
cleverest $hows that has ever been
seen in Victoria. Thc "fake" niggers
are comical; the girls are pretty; thc
singing is good. I trust that Miss
Dooley will meet with the success
which she very thoroughly deserves.
The Majestic Theatre
Mr. Christie is indeed to be congratulated on the films which he has put
on his screen for the Christmas week.
St. Elmo attracted a large house; so
did "A Romance of the Rockies."
This enterprising manager knows how
to get good stuff to fill a good house.
The Romano Theatre
I think that I have been somewhat
lax of late in making due appreciation
of thc excellent work done by the
orchestra at the Romano Theatre. Mr.
Qiiacjliotti always provides a good set
of films, but there are few Moving
Picture Houses in town which provide
as good a musical accompaniment as
does Romano's.
The Crystal Theatre
"Bob" has turned up trumps again
and has been giving his clients good
stuff during the Christmas week. No
more popular manager than "Bob"
Jamieson exists on the Coast. It is a
pleasure to be able to say that his
house is nightly showing evidences
of his popularity.

PROF. WOLFENDEN'S ORCHESTRA
The Chocolate Soldier
To those familiar with matters of
operatic moment it will come as no
surprise that Frederic C. Whitney in
choosing the cast for his now famous
production of "The Chocolate Soldier," to be presented at thc Victoria
Theatre on Tuesday, January 3, has
selected fit' successors for the long
line of world-known singers heard in
his earlier productions: Mme. Schumann-Heink in "Love's Lottery," Lillian Blauvelt in "Thc Rose of Alham-
bra," Juliet Corden, Lizzie Mac-
Xichol and Barron Berthald in "Rob
Roy," Marie Tempest in "Thc Fencing Master," and others.
More than any opera to bc remembered is "Thc Chocolate Soldier," an
opera of principals in whicli all arc
prominent in the telling of the story
and in which unusual dramatic ability is demanded. For the three players of the feminine roles Mr. Whitney
was again obliged to go the Grand
Opera field for singers who could set
forth thc beauties of the Straus score
in satisfying manner.
Antoinette Kopetzky, who sings the
soprano role of Nadina, is a Bohemian brought by Mr. Whitney from
her engagement at the Theatre Xa-1
tional at Prague. She has sung at ■
Covcnt Garden, London, at the Vienna Grand Opera House and in America with the French National Opera
Company in which Mine Tetrazzini
made her American debut. Mme.
Kopetzky was greeted by the critics
of Chicago and thc East as possessing
greater personal charm and intelligence of impersonation than any
other dramatic soprano of the decade.
Margaret Crawford, who sings the
contralto role of Aurelia, is an American who sang for several seasons
with the Savage English Opera company and went to Germany to study
and sing in the Hof-Theatres, as the
theatres under state control are called,
ft was her unusual engagement for
four years that prompted the German
papers to seriously discuss the "American Invasion of the German Stage"
in leading papers. Miss Crawford has
sung her favorite role of Brunnhilda
in ''Die Valkurie" before "Frau" Wagner, an honour not lightly won.
lion Bergere, who plays the sprightly Mascha in thc opera, is a Hungarian who comes from a long line
of musical ancestry. Her father is
concert-meister at the Vienna Opera
House and she has three sisters now

Miss Maxine Elliott
How a lone woman novelist accidentally on board a yacht with a confirmed woman-hater and a mutinous
crew, can control the owner, thc men
and the ship itself, to say nothing of
an irate officer of a Trans-Atlantic
lines, is the task Miss Maxine Elliott
has to perform in her newest comedy,
"The Inferior Sex," which she brings
to the Victoria Theatre Jan. 5th. To
the evident .satisfaction of the audiences, the undertaking is completed
to the finest details when thc curtain
falls on thc final act. Thc comedy is
of a distinctly nautical flavor and goes
at times with an eight-knot rapidity
of speed. Miss Elliott played it last
winter and spring at Daly's Theatre
in New York and again at her own
theatre this autumn. Briefly, tllis is
the plot:
Charles Winslow is a yacht owner
who hires people to run his ship for
him while he writes "works" 011 the
inferiority of women to men. He is
engaged on a two months' cruise
while completing his latest effort, to
be called "Thc Inferior Sex," but before he has been three days at sea,
an example of this sex comes on
board against her inclination to give
him a model for further study. She
is Eve Addison, adrift in a small boat,
alone, in a fog and she is picked up
by Winslow's crew, Winslow, perforce, is obliged to give her his cftb-
ilili which hc docs most grudgingly,
insisting upon the right to occupy it
during the day time, while she has it
at night.

GIBRALTAR
BY BOHEMIAN
"The Rock" is not an ideal place
' to visit in summer and it was August when I was there. The heat
seems to concentrate in the Rock
during the day and come out again
during thc night; the consequence being that the night is hotter than the
day.
I arrived in Gibraltar on a coasting steamer; the name of the firm I
I can't remember, neither do I remember the Captain's name, but I do remember that he Avas a very Avell read
man, with a vast fund of information
which he could never locate. He
Avould start telling a story of absorbing interest and forget all the names
connected with it. Still, he was a
charming companion, and, as in all
probability, neither my friend or myself would have recognised the names
—we enjoyed the stories just as
much.
We reached Gibraltar about 8
o'clock in the morning; the Harbour Master or what corresponds to
him in a naval station, came out in
his launch. "Any passengers aboard,"
he cried; our Skipper replied "Yes,
two. "Where arc they going to?"
Well, we hadn't uade up our minds,
but with such a peremptory order
we settled on Naples and by our
just decision got a permit to land at
"The Rock."
There are a whole lot of people
who base tlieir belief in Christianity
on the prophecy uttered by the Avar-
rior female, Deborah, unless I am
very much mistaken, who said that
the chosen of the Lord should possess the gate of their enemies. On
this supposition they claim that thc
Anglo-Saxon race is a direct descendant of the Lost Tribes of Israel.
It is perfectly true that at thc time
that Admirals Cloudesley Shovel and
Rooke captured Gibraltar, it was the
home of our enemies. But those days
have long since passed and since
then Spain and England have fought
hand in hand against tlieir common
foes.
On our arrival from the boat we
wore accosted by the guard at the
entrance to the tOAvn; he wanted to
know if we Avere carrying guns or
other dangerous Aveapons. We pacified his apprehensions and were permitted to pass up to the Hotel Cecil,
wncre Ave Avere entertaind in a right
royal fashion.
' At that time General Sir George
White, of Ladysmith fame, was
Governor of Gibraltar. I witnessed
the festivities on the Alameda
Grounds, whereat this distinguished
soldier presided, the occasion being
the celebration of the coronation of
thc late King Edward VII. of sacred
memory. The Park was crowded
with children, who went through
their various evolutions in a most admirable manner. I remember that
my companion wept salt tears of
misery because he was not in London to Avitncss the Procession which
commemorated the accession of the
most tactful monarch who ever
graced an English throne.
Over the Bay lies Algeciras; here
the "blue jackets" and "Tommies"
have a chance of witnessing the Spanish bull-fight. The ring at Algeciras
is one of thc biggest in Spain; Madrid
and Seville are, of course, the homt
of bull-lights, but my friend Algeciras runs them pretty close. There
was an excellent Motel ill Algeciras,
but beyond the fact that the name
starts with Christina I cannot remember its full title. It has a most excellent courtyard, and a very good
billiard table. The trip from Algeciras to Gibraltar is made on a little
steamer which takes about a couple
of hours to go from port to port.
On the other side of the Neutral
Territory lies Linea. An interesting
feature of this boundary tOAvn is the
Avire screens erected to prevent clog
smugglers. The same precautions
are used in thc Basque Provinces nn
the boundary line between France and
Spain. Dogs are used extensively for
the purpose of smuggling tobacco,
and the only satisfactory method yet
discovered to check these canine
thieves is the use of these screens.
The Rock Scorpion is indigenous
to Gibraltar; he is not a poisonous
insect, as one might infer from his
appellation, but a resident of the
town, born and bred there. Hc is
neither fish, flesh, fowl, nor good red
herring; disdained by the Spaniards
as one preferring to live under a foreign yoke and regarded Avith a certain amount of contempt by the English population. Under these circumstances it may readily be imagined
that the lot of the Rock Scorpion is
not a peculiarly happy one. However,
he seems to thrive on it, most of the
business in the town being in his
hands.
As everyone knows .the wonders of
Gibraltar lie in the Rock itself. But
few people are allowed to penetrate
its mysteries. It is true that the
tourist is cajoled into believing that
he has been through the celebrated
galleries, but unless he be a Britisli
bom subject he sees very little in
reality; and even the Britisher, unless he is in the Service or possessed
of very high influence, sees only a
fraction fo those mysteries Avhich
havc made the Rock so famous. A
great deal of nonsense Avas talked
some years ago when it Avas reported
in the press that the Kaiser had been
conducted throughout the length and
breadth of the galleries. As a matter of fact Wilhelm II. saAV no more
than the average American making
the "grand tour." The game of
"bluff" is not Avholly confined to the
North American continent.
The Alameda is Gibraltar's playground. The gardens are beautifully
laid out and I remember a comical incident Avith regard to the statue of
the Duke of Wellington which is situated in a prominent position. Our
hackman, who was likeAvise filling the
role of guide, philosopher and friend,
pointed out the memorial and remarked that Ave might have heard of the
Duke of Wellington, who, Avith the
aid of the Spanish, had driven the
French out of the Peninsula. Those
who have read a history of that famous Avar and remember the part played in it by the Spanish Junta will be
able to appreciate the rare humour
of this sally; the beauty of it being
that it Avas said in all sincerity and
good faith.
Lying directly opposite Gibraltar
on the other side of the Straits is
Ceuta, a strongly fortified Spanish
town. It is claimed, hoAvever, that
the batteries on the Rock can throw
their shells into this town should occasion require. A little further to
the West is Tangier, a place much
frequented by tourists. An enjoyable trip is the one made from Tangier over the spur of the Atlas Mts.
to Tetuan and thence to Scuta. Tet-
pau loomed largely in the public eye
some years ago when that noted ban
(lit Raislui made it his headquarters.
The walls of the town arc of marvellous thickness and arc said to 'have
been built many hundreds of years
ago by the Portuguese, who Avere
thc original possessors of the place.
There are some wonderful caves in
Tetuan which in ages past were used
by the Romans for thc making of
Mosaics.
From Ceuta the traveller can take

OPTIMISM AND ENTERPRISE
Some people deprecate Real Estate
booms, claiming that they are ephemeral, artificial and reactionary. But
there are booms and booms; those
which arc manufactured out of "whole
cloth" are just as illusive as any other
Will-o-thelWisp. This may apply to
many Western and some Eastern
townsite propositions, but the Real
Estate boom whicii groAvs out of local development, the opening up of
local resources and the advent of up-
to-date transportation facilities is an
entirely different thing. Such a
boom is not created; it grows out of
conditions; and, although, like all
other business propositions it may experience fluctuations, it will, in the
main, continue to be progressive.
Measured by this standard the boom
which has been so much in evidence
in Victoria real estate for the last
tAvo years, and more particularly for
the last six months, has every promise for continuance. Indeed, having
regard to the enormous developments Avhich are taking place and the
enterprises which will be floatel in
the near future it is a reasonable conclusion that the Victoria movement is
only in its infancy. One of the most
striking features of real estate business here is the attraction which it
has furnished to new and enterprising firms. Many men who have made
their mark in the Prairie Provinces
and in Western cities have recently
established themselves in Victoria
and are finding real estate operations
a profitable field. Others combine insurance Avith their Real Estate operations; indeed, the tAvo things seem to
go hand in hand naturally. Among
the neAver and most popular firms is
that of Warner & Irwin, who are established in the best part of Yates
Street, a thoroughfare which is rapidly coming into prominence and which
already challenges the supremacy of
Government Street. This firm represents a number of important companies, including The Fireman's Fund
Fire and Automobile Insurance Co.;
The Canada Accident & Sickness Assurance Co.; The Dominion Life Insurance Co., and The Employers' Liability, Plate Glass, Marine.

Owing to a shortage in the production of milk English dairy farmers

The Basis of Empire
Speaking on Tuesday night at a
dinner given by the Master and the
Wardens of the Worshipful Company
of Patternmakers, Sir George Reid
said that it was not in the nature of
the British race to be satisfied with
an illustrious past. There was always the everlasting resolve to reach
greater heights. He Avas delighted
to sec the spread of good relation's
with other races, but the result of his
reading and reflection Avas that the
only basis on which the Empire could
rest securely Avas the strength and
readiness of its oavii people to fight

He also expressed his wish for the
perpetual observance of another
Tichborne custom, that on any member of the family being buried at
Tichborne, fifty-four quartern loaves
should bc distributed among the poor
people attending the funeral, and that
each should be given a small sivler

Sir H. Tichborne's Will
Thc estate of the late Sir Henry A.
J. Doughty-Tichborne, Bart., of Tichborne Park, Hampshire, who ided in
July at the age of forty-four, has been
valued at £144,631 gross. Sir Henry, avIio Avas a posthumous child,
was the infant over whose head the
famous Tichborne case Avas fought in
1872. The title and estates were
claimed by an Australian butcher,
Arthur Orton, who posed as Sir Henry's missing uncle Roger.
In his will Sir Henry gave directions for the perpetual observance of

Earl Grey's Kind Action
Earl Grey, the Governor-General of
Canada, has personally interested
himself in the fate of two old women,
both blind, who had been for fifteen
years in gaol at Montreal on a charge
of vagrancy and being unable to
earn their living. As a result the
unhappy Avomen have been removed
from prison to an institution for the

General may lead to definite steps to
remove the scandal of indigent unfortunates being gaoled for lack of
other refuge. THE WEEK, SATUEDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1910

Good   Ore  From  Homestake  Claim
Recent arrivals from up-river report that Foreman Griswold of the

and his gang Avere located near Lundbreck by the mounted police. A
strong effort was made to capture
them, but they made their get-away
and came to British Columbia. Shortly after the holdup at Ducks, Constable Ike Decker attempted to arrest
Haney and another man, but Avas
killed by Haney. There is now a reward of * $6,ooo for the capture of Haney. A man answering Haney's description has been seen around Yahk

ago. Constable Browning of Moyie
has been on his trail and is on the
alert for any fresh evidences of him
in this territory. The description of
Haney is that he is about 35 years of
age, heavy set and slightly bald. He
has large hands and short, stubby fingers. Thc fingers are so short that his
hands appear deformed. BroAvn hair
tinged with gray, large ears, and a
mole on his right cheek. He goes
well armed and Avould probably be a
hard man to take. It is believed that
Haney and his comrades were contemplating another holdup Avhen the

There are to be two stores on the

One Opinion from Prince Rupert
Alderman G. R. Naden and
"Blind Pigs"
Alderman G R. Naden, the chairman of the Local Option League
meeting on Sunday, gave an interview
to their present newspaper organ, as
reported in its columns as recently as
30th July, 1910, as follows:
"I also believe that Local Option
will get a strong vote from the 'Blind
Pig' men, as they Avould have a better chance to operate under local option than under licence. Of course
the new Canada Temperance Act
Avill make it much easier to keep the
'Blind Pig' down, but they will operate just the same. It Avould be as
easy to stop Avater running down hill
than to close 'Blind Pigs' in a local
option town."

There is every reason for believing
that Haney, the bandit avIio held up

Kamloops, a year or more ago, is now
I live for those who love me,
Whose hearts are kind and true:
For the heavens that smile above me,
And await my spirit too;
For all human ties that bind me,
For the task that God assigned me,
For the bright hopes left behind me,
And the good that I can do.
I live to learn their story
AVho suffered for my sake,
To emulate their glory

Bards, patriots, martyrs, sages,
The noble of all ages,
Whose deeds crown history's pages,
And 'Time's great volume make.
I live to hail that season,
By gifted minds foretold,
When man shall live by reason,
And not alone by gold;
When man to man united,
And every wrong thing righted,
The whole world shall be lighted
As Eden was of old.
I live for those who love me,
For those who know me true,
For the heavens that smile above me,
And await my spirit too;
For the cause that needs assistance,
For the wrongs that need resistance,
For the future in the distance,
And the good that I can do.
DIVIDED
A Song.      By. G. C.
Dreary and dark lies the quiet shore;
Mournfully sobs the sea;
Winds eorne whimpering up to the door,
Like sorrow that's seeking me;
Out on the breakers the wild gulls call,
Here  in  the firelight  glow,
Laddie, my heart cries over it all—
Laddie, I want you so!
Never the ringing laugh is heard,
Never the merry jest,
Never the kind and tender word
From  the one that I  love the best;
Never the song of a passionate vow
Sung to me, soft and low—
Laddie, my world Is empty now!
Laddie, I miss you so!
Dead are the leaves In the woodland ways,
Silent the woodland stream;
Perished are all my golden days,
Broken  my golden dream;
AM, all Is gone, and I only live
In the beautiful long ago—
Laddie, come back—forget! forgive!
Laddie, I need you so!

A Considerate Husband
"Say," remarks Peckham in a hoarse
whisper, during his wife's temporary absence from the room, "whatever you do
do not allude to Eleanor as my better
half, in her presence."
"All right," rejoined the guest, "it's
an expression that i seldom use, any-
Avay, as it is both shop-worn and plebeian."
"It isn't that," said Peckham in explanation, "but Eleanor is awfully sensitive when it comes to fractions and
it would annoy her if you were to rate
her at anything less than three-fourths."
Disappearing Horse
The passing of the English horse
and the shortage of the supply of
suitable animals for Army purposes
were the subjects of discussion at a
meeting of horse-owners held at the
Holborn Restaurant recently, at
the invitation of the National
Union of Horse Vehicle Owners.
The appointment of a committee to
consider thc advisability of forming
a coalition of the various associations
interested in the breeding and use of
the horse Avas decided upon. This
coalition would, it was pointed out,
work for the encouragement of the
breeding of suitable horses both for
national defence and trade purposes.

New Year's Resolutions
Should be Made Now
AAHiy not resolve to do all in your power to beautify Arictoria by beautifying your own premises? A sensible resolution because
there is money in it for you.   Every merchant owes to himself ancl more so to his customer good service.   You cannot render
good service Avithout good light.
Beautify Victoria by Beautifyinq Your
Own Store wi,h Osram Tunqsten Lamps
You knoAV Iioav you feel when you pass or enter a dimly lighted shop. It gives you a very poor opinion of that certain man's
business. You feel that he cannot be doing very much and you can't but believe him when he says "Nothing doing"! Good
lighting speaks prosperity and prosperity begets prosperity.   It is only natural for people to patronize the store that is well lighted.
OUR OSRAM TUNGSTEN LAMPS NOT ONLY BEAUTIFY THE PREMISES, BUT THEY BRING BUSINESS. WE
WANT TO PROVE THIS TO YOU. CALL AND SEE US, OR TELEPHONE 1609 AND OUR REPRESENTATIVE
WILL CALL UPON YOU AND TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THIS BEST AND MOST BRILLIANT OF ALL LIGHTS.

At the Street Corner
By THE LOUNGER
(Continued from Page 2)
to any tOAvn; Langley Street is receiving attention from the same
capable hands. But, how about that
little street which runs behind the
Court House? There is an Olde Inne,
yclept "The Boomerang," frequented
much by the legal fraternity; one
Avould have thought that the black-
coated gentry Avould have insisted on
their rights long ere this. But they
haven't, and thc only recognizance
given to their pretentions is a very
Avct and wobbly board spread across
thc muddiest part of the street. Incidentally, it would seem superfluous
to refer to thc condition of Fort
Street; 1 have written about this
street until I am tired, but so far, I
have never had any response from the
City Council. Words might be said
with regard to thc James' Bay District. I am no politician and I
neither knoAV nor care avIio our Alderman is, but I cannot help thinking
that, whatever his name and whatever
his degree, he is disgracefully neglecting those citizens of Victoria
who have the happiness to live over
the Bay. There are all sorts of people
in Victoria avIio think that Rockland
Avenue is the one aristocratic place
in which to dwell! 1 speak for
James' Bay; I have many reasons for
saying this; and shall be glad to give
them to any disputant. In James'
Bay we do not suffer from the encroachment of the Red Light clement;
Ave have not been subjected to the
ridiculous exposure Avhich has affected
residents on Rockland Avenue and
streets which bear as high-toned an
appellation in Society circles. And we
don't intend to bc. Let the Reformers read, mark, learn and iiiAA-ardly
digest the lessons which their actions
ought to have taught them and after
due consideration they may realise
some of the practical duties Avhich a
whole-hearted citizen may render to
his fellow townsman. This is the
opinion and the advice of the
afa
MUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 3.)
A charming singer will bc heard
in Margaret Frye, church soloist and
star of the Red Mill company. She
is a soprano and Avas soloist at Trinity church, Seattle, and several Ncav
York churches, and also with Pryor's
famous orchestra.
Then there is an act in which wardrobe will play a part for Miss Lester
brings $2,000 worth of gowns with
her for her act Avith Mr. Kellett. The
act is a combination of dressing,
charm, good voices and much come-
dy.
Those masters of melody, the Olio
trio comprised by Moore, Tinker and
Gardiner, will havc no difficulty in
pleasing here for all arc possessed of
fine voices, know Iioav to keep an
audience laughing all the Avhile, and
never lack thc incidentals for luunor-
ous and enjoyable entertainment.
The Grandiscope Avill dispense thc
usual pictures at the end of the show.
The Sheffield Choir
It is with sincere satisfaction that
Victorians will learn that a Citizens'
Committee is being formed to arrange
for a concert to be held some time in
the Spring under the auspices of The
Sheffield Choir. This choir has a rcp-
xttation second to none and it is confidently expected by the music-lovers
of Victoria that their appearance here
Avill be the signal for a big turn-out.
Full details will be seen in thc columns of this paper later.

TOPICAL TRIFLES
(By Onlooker.)
For the last three weeks my excellent friend the printer has been
giving my little weekly footle the interesting title of "Tropical Trifles." I
did not know my articles were,as
warm as all that! Even my fellow
scribbler, Thc Lounger, gets nearer
the equatorial line than I dare venture, but I have told them not to do
it again, though what the result will
be, goodness only knows. As a rule,
clerical errors occur at most inopportune places, very often in the form
of an omission of the slightly important negative "not," which mishap I
have frequently noticed in local
daily papers. But none of us are
immune from the tender mercies of
the printer and his staff, whose originality in composition and spelling is
sometimes most amazing (and annoying),
i Apparently the Liberals are going
to be somewhat "up against it" when
they come to reform the House of
Lords. A new Upper House with
five hundred brand new peers would
be "something fierce," wouldn't it?
Perhaps it would have been better if
they had let that ancient and honourable body well alone. The question
almost puts John Redmond and Lloyd
George in the shade, to say nothing
of the suffragettes who will have to
think of some new schemes to attract attention, which reminds mc that
a prominent ladies' club in Victoria
is thinking of removing a periodical
entitled "Votes for Women," from
its reading room. We hear that a
feature of recent suffragette agitations in London was the increasing
number of aristocratic women taking part in the public strife, evidently Victoria society women are tired
of trying to ape the manners and
ways of the upper class English woman, which will be a relief to many
people, and in this case is only good
sense. Perhaps they will devote
more time to teaching their, little
boys and girls the manners that Earl
Grey tells us Canadian children are
so devoid of. That the Earl is right,
few will deny, except the "benighted
and ill-educated souls who havc persuaded themselves that gentle manners are a sign of servility." I suppose now we shall have a great controversy as to whether or not Canadian children have good or bad manners. The trouble is that they have
not got any manners at all.
Captain Wolley has made quite an
impression with his pamphlet on the
"Canadian Naval Question," and it is
certain that interest in this vital question is becoming aroused at last
where before apathy, was astonishing.
;It is now up to somebody interested
in Canadian Defense to conduct a
campaign for the abolition of cigarette heart and moving picture eye,
"which constitutional defects have been
so fatal to the worthy aspirations of
many young Canadian recruits. It
was rather a come-down thc first two
local volunteers who went to win
fame on the good ship H. M. C. S.
Rainbow, and after many columns of
local newspapers devoted to dissertations on thc bravery, churagc and devotion on the part of the local contribution to Imperialism, the poor little
boys had to be sent home again because they could not pass the physical examination. All honour to the
boys themselves whose spirits wcre
willing, but whose flesh might havc
been stronger if they had been encouraged to play football on Saturday afternoon instead of possibly following thc favorite occupation of loc-
'al youths, namely, loafing round thc
streets, their only exercise consisting
.of throwing stones at Chinamen.
They say that the Liberal party in
Vancouver has got ii microbe. They
.also say that politics in England, if
the number of humorous cartoons is
any criterion, are taken much less seriously than in this country. Of
•course when one combines, not pleasure, but business with politics, and
'your wife vyajltS:.a* new hat every day,
•can you wonder that politics are a
serious matter in this country?
So our respected Editor has* got a
testimonial for services rendered to
the sensible in Prince Rupert! Dr.
Spencer may mean well, but William
B. for mine!
