THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
The decision of Mr. Justice
toy Irving  which quashes  the
sing. Sunday Closing By-law is
undoubtedly  good  law,   as
.mon sense, and if the City should be
11-advised as to appeal to the Full Court
vould simply be a useless expenditure
mblic money, as the decision will un-
stionably be sustained.    This is not
place to argue a technical legal point,
all legislation of the kind involved
ties with technicalities.    The question
iscrimination .arises, and is often fatal
sn, as in the present case, it proposes
jlassify traders, and to prohibit some
n doing what others may do with im-
ity.    Then the question of interfer-
. with the exercise of a legitimate busi-
i calling crops up, ancl this point spe-
ly attracted the attention of the judge,
clearly indicated his distaste for such
unfair and un-English proceeding. The
; of the matter is that the very zealous
pie who incited the City Council to
me the  by-law  and made  themselves
y to ensure its acceptance by the rate-
ers overshot the mark, and in their
for the cause of righteousness did a
y unrighteous thing.    The AVeek has
ays strongly advocated Sunday closing
it was almost the only paper in thc
wince, and certainly the only one in
toria or Vancouver, which urged the
orcement of the' Lord's Day Act.    It
therefore been consistent in the de-
ce of the principle of Sunday closing,
it has never been in favour of intol-
nce, and it is just as intolerant to close
ill stores which supply necessary food
drink in the shape of fruit and soft
hks, as it would be to close every res-
rant in the City.   There are scores of
iple to whom this light refreshment is as
ispensable in the Summer time as more
d food and heavier drinks, and no sec-
of the community has a right to say
t another section shall not be able to
cure what they want to eat and drink
Sunday as readily on any other day.
len the Lord's Day Alliance began its
■k ten years ago it was strongly opposed
the ground that it was Puritanic in
iign, that it would become arbitrary if
awed to have its way, that after estab-
ling the main principle for which it
s contending, general Sunday closing,
would go on to restrict harmless recre-
on, and in short try to revive the Sab-
,h of the Puritan.   All this was stoutly
nied by its representatives and their as-
■ances were accepted in good faith. The
y point at issue in Victoria was con-
led by the alliance in Montreal, and its
leers expressed themselves satisfied at
_ shutting down of all places of amuse-
int or games for which an entrance fee
s charged, ancl the closing of all stores
3ept small fruit, candy ancl soft drink
ires.   This was a fair compromise which
.rificed no principle and infringed on
rights of no section of the community
d it ought to be sufficient for Victoria,
ie Week does not hesitate to say that the
.ion of the Council in attempting to
force Sunday closing and the proposal
prevent innocent recreation in the pub-
parks on Sunday will do more to un-
rmine the work of the Lord's Day Al-
nce than anything that could be brought
out by its most determined opposers.
ie advocates of reform, especially in this
lightened age, should have some little
'ard for the opinions and wishes of those
10 differ from them.    It is too late in
the day to legislate people into heaven, or
even into church, which is a very different
thing. If a man wants to go to church
he will go of his own accord; if not, all the
laws in the world will not make him go.
It is the same with prohibition, which adds
hypocricy to other evils of the drink
traffic, and has not in any instance sensibly diminished the consumption of
liquor. It is so with Sunday closing;
people who Avant fresh fruit, ice cream,
or soft drinks will get them on Sunday
and will buy them on Sunday, either with
or without the sanction of the law, and.
The. Week does not hesitate to say that
they should be permitted to do so, and
it is very greatly mistaken if British laAV
will allow any discrimination in such a
matter. Rather more than a year ago one
of the foremost advocates, ancl strenuous
supporters, of the Sunday Closing By-law
had a contract for altering a theatre in
Victoria. The fact that it was a theatre
did not deter him from taking the contract. In order to have it completed
within the specified time, and to save himself from having to pay a penalty if it
were late, he and his men worked all day
on the Sunday preceding the opening.
There was no question of principle involved in this and no matter of emergency;
it was simply a case of avoiding a money
fine. The Week is only guessing but it
would be moderate to assume that the fine
might be $20 a day, but suppose it was
$50, then the price of that man's Sunday
observance principle was exactly $50.
Now The Week simply mentions this as'
an illustration of the unfairness of those
who wish to discriminate against a section
of the community Avho differ from their
opinion and yet Avho see nothing Avrong
in what most people Avould think a far
greater offence against the sanctities of the
Sabbath than the buying or selling of an
orange or an ice cream. It is just another
case of ' the mote and the beam," and The
Week belieAres that that will be the judgment of the citizens of Victoria.
Wanted-
A Daniel,
The Victoria City Council
is badly in need of a little
legal advice of the right
sort. It has developed a remarkable aptitude for being wise after .he
event. It is always a mistake to bark
unless you can bite, and the Council has
done quite a lot of barking lately only to
find that it could go no further. Its first
bad slip Avas in refusing to honour the
resolution of the Park's Board to pay a
salary of $150 a month to the Superintendent; after causing the resignation of
four valued members of the Board it
finally discovered that its action had been
illegal and that, as The AVeek always contended, the Board had absolute control
over its OAvn appropriation. The Superintendent will now get his $150 Avith all
arrears. If Alderman Henderson, the
Chairman of the Finance Committee, carries out his childish threat and refuses to
honour the payslip Mr. England Avill simply sue the City, and the ratepayers Avill
have to pay the $150, plus the legal cost.
The next bad blunder was to threaten the
Country Club Avith eviction. True, this
threat emanated from the Mayor and not
from the Council, but it caused some of
the daily papers to fall into a trap, and
their editors to see visions and to dream
dreams, but that was the end of it, for on
reference to the City Barrister, it Avas
found that the Council had executed a cast
iron agreement which made,the action of
the Mayor look both cheap and childish,
especially as the only result Avas to elicit
the further opinion that betting was not
illegal, and yet this same betting constituted the head ancl front of the offending.
Then came the Sunday Closing By-law
which has been dealt with above, and
which is really the worst mistake of all
because the ratepayers have been put to
the trouble and expense of voting on a
proposition Avhich a judge of the Supreme
Court has noAV condemned. The AVeek has
no doubt about the legal ability of the
gentlemen Avho are paid to advise the City
Council, but there is a screAV loose somewhere, and in future it would be Avell to
consult them and allow plenty of time to
look up the authorities and to obtain a
clear-cut opinion before the Council makes
a false move Avhich it has to retrace with
such show of dignity as it can maintain.
England's
Ally.
Alctoria received a visit this
week from an eminent member of the staff of the London Times, Mr. Chirol, and
in the course of a A'ery interesting inter-
vieAV which he gave to the Evening Post
he stated that but for the alliance with
England and Japan the recent revolution
in Persia Avould undoubtedly have provoked Avar between Russia and England.
Persia Avas long looked upon as the buffer
of the Indian frontier, and the supreme
efforts made in the past to retain the
friendship of the Shah evidenced its importance in the eyes of English diplomatists. For a century the Foreign
Office has regarded Herat Ss the key to
India. The burden and the difficulty of
preserving the integrity of Persia against
Russian intrigue has been both heavy and
costly. Lord Salisbury's sagacious policy,
Avhich resulted in an alliance Avith Japan,
minimised both the burden ancl the difficulty, and the recent lwolution has furnished the first conspicuous instance of its
success.
The coal miners' strike in
A Fight 0ape Breton continues with
To a Finish,    varying fortunes, but in the
main it would appear that
the Company is more than holding its OAvn.
This is denoted by a steady increase in
output, Avhich if continued must ultimately ensure a victory for them. The important feature of the case is that it Avill
also be a victory for the local labor organization. Mr. AVanklyn, the vice-president,
and Mr. Duggan, the manager, have both
placed themselves on record in tlie press
to the effect that there is much more involved than a miners' strike; they declare that labor is being made use of by
capital to close cIoavii the Canadian mines
in order that American coal operators may
secure their market. It has always been
a sore point Avith the American operators
that Canadian coal should find a footing
in the New England market. As a matter of fact Mr. H. M. AVhitney, who
established the Dominion Coal Company,
Avas a Boston magnate, and one of his
prime objects Avas to secure a large American market. For sixteen years the
No\ra Scotia collieres ha\re exported a
steady increasing tonnage to the NeAV
England States. The coal goes by water
at a cheap rate, and the 60 cents duty is
not sufficient to keep it out.   If the duty
is further reduced to 45 cents, as recently
foreshadowed by the Revision Committee,
the American market Avill be still further
invaded, but it is the opinion of Mr.
VVauklyn and Mr. Duggan that the operators are furnishing the funds for the
United Aline Workers Association in the
hope that a prolonged strike will ensue,
and they ■will regain control of the market.
It is not the first time that this Aveapon
has been used, nor the first time that paid
agitators have been made tools of by the
capitalists whom they so vigorously denounce, but it ought to be the last in
Canada. MeaiiAvhile, there is little doubt
that in spite of all protests the military
forces will be maintained at Glace Bay
ancl the company and the Canadian union
afforded every support in an unequal and
unjust contest.
After all private liberality
The British wj]i pTObably effect Avhat
Association.      t]le capital city of British
Columbia failed to do in
raising the munificent sum of $250
towards entertaining the greatest scientific
association in the world: The Victoria
Times deprecates the view that the Association should receive some attention because it will advertise the City. If its
entertainment Avas based upon that supposition alone, the Times is right, but
surely no one Avould take such a view. The
fact.of the matter is that the Central
Committee ask for a small contribution to
a general fund, which is being used
throughout the Dominion to pay necessary
expenses, and to enable the Committee to
extend a few .courtesies to the illustrious
visitors. Victoria's refusal Avould be telegraphed throughout tlie length and
breadth of the country, ancl would at least
produce a bad impression, and place the
city in a ridiculous light, but it is to be
hoped that this will be avoided by the
means suggested by Mr. Chapman, a
member of the Geological Survey now
Avorking in the neighbourhood.
The AVeek adheres to Avhat
Inconsistent.     ^ ]jas previously said about
tlie invitation extended by
tho Canadian Club to the Hon. William
Pugsley. It is one thing for the Board of
Trade, Avhich is strictly a business organization, to tender Mr. Pugsley a reception
in order to lay before him its vieAVS of the
requirements of Victoria. As Minister of
Public AVorks it is his duty to get in touch
with the organizations Avhich represent the
ratepayers ancl business men. AVith the
Canadian Club it is entirely a different
matter. This is a voluntary organization
whose avoAved purpose is to spread Canadian sentiment. AVhat Canadian sentiment is it spreading by honouring a man
Avho Avas condemned by the Opposition,
ancl by many of tlie leading men of his
OAvn Party, for conduct which they claim
Avas indefensible in a public servant. Mr.
Pugsley shirked the opportunity to clear
himself of these charges. The country
may have to tolerate him as a Minister
because it cannot help itself, but tliere is
no reason Avhy he should be singled out for
honour by a representative Canadian Institution; and, in the opinion of The
AVeek, the invitation loAvers the Canadian
Club ancl impairs its influence. Incidentally it sensibly diminishes the value of
any other invitations Avhich the Club may
extend. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1909

*
By THB LOUNQER
fy*ffy**\/tm»t\l-w_t_}fr-t
Business called me over to Vancouver this week and I took note of
several things going and coming
which are not without their significance. The first was the crowded
state of the boats. When the Princess Charlotte was put on many people believed that she would run for
several years without paying expenses.
As a matter of fact she has been fairly loaded during the last two weeks,
and the dining-room accommodation
is entirely inadequate. I am informed
that it is impossible to serve more
than three tables at a single meal,
and even this taxes the commissariat
department to thc limit. It provides
for a total of less than 400 people
and the balance, which at times
reaches a thousand, must either gu
unfed or carry their meals with them.
1 do not see any difficulty in establishing a lunch counter on the two
Princesses, and so furnishing an opportunity for procuring at any rate
a little light refreshment. I think it
is a legitimate grievance that the men
should be able to get a drink but the
women can neither get drink or food.
Capt. Troup, who is ever mindful of
the comfort and convenience ot his
passengers, might either deal with
this or make representation in tlie
right quarter.
Another point which struck me is
the continual growth of Vancouver.
There are people who talk of dull
times and there are tradesmen who
say that sufficient money is not passing over the counters to make business reasonably remunerative, but in
spite of these conditions if they actually do prevail, there is no complaining ill the streets, and as far as
I could see no diminution in attendance on public amusements, whether
111 the theatres or the park. When
people in British Columbia complain
of dull times they make comparisons
with the high water mark standard,
and if business falls ever so little below that they are not satisfied. Why
not institute a comparison with the
lowest standard and follow it up by
one with standards elsewhere; if this
were done there would be no legitimate complaint in this Province,
which in spite of all is today the
most prosperous of any in thc
Dominion.
One more thing I learned on my
trip which was very gratifying, it is
that there is a healthier public sentiment on matters affecting the Empire. It is not so long since the Terminal City, or at any rate a section
of its most aggressive citizens, were
bidding for unpopularity by careless
utterances on Imperial questions, and
only too conspicuous evidences of
sympathy with some of the lowest
American ideals. For this attitude
iilien agitators were largely responsible, but the wave of Imperial sentiment which recently swept through
the Empire was felt in Vancouver and
the result has been to wipe out disaffection with British policy, and to
consolidate public opinion in its support, lt would be a calamity if Vancouver developed a public sentiment
bearing even the remotest resemb-
lence to the "Seattle Spirit" and I
for one sincerely hope that the danger of this has passed.
* *     *
1 am glad that the local press is a
unit in denouncing the men who are
responsible for building a "death
trap" for the school children in the
Lampson street district. The prompt
determination of Premier McBride
to have a thorough investigation
should result in a fearless expert report, and it is therefore the part of
wisdom to postpone further comment
until that report is to hand. All I
have to say is that there should be
no loss of time, as public opinion has
been rapidly formed on a matter
which, as far as it is possible to
.nidge, is one of thc most discreditable whicli has ever arisen in connec-
1,011 with public works in this Province.
*   *   *
Let me congratulate the Park's
Board on having shot the bears, and
removed the remnant of the Zoo. Personally I should have been very
pleased if the whole collection had
been chloroformed, but I have lived
in this world long enough to know
how to bc thankful for small mercies,
ancl on this principle wish to express
my appreciation of what has been
done in a matter which I have ventilated, off and on, in thc Lounger
column for nearly five years.
* *     *
Being a degenerate I occasionally
go to the races, and am therefore in
a position to notice the great improvement which has been effected in
the safety and cleanliness of travel
since  the  police   authorities  checked
We have placed a limited
number of very choice and exceptionally large waterfront lots
on the market. These are
readily being sold. There are
still five left and this is a favorable opportunity of securing a
charming seaside position for a summer home. The car will be here
in the near future. The lots are picturesque, with a variety of trees,
and command a superb view.
The price is absurdly low.   Lots are from one-third to one-half
acre, and range from $450 to $550 with easy terms.

excessive speeding by the automobiles, and the water department
sprinkled Fort street and Cadboro
Bay Road. The latter is an inestimable boom to the travelling public,
whether they are on foot, in the cars,
or in other vehicles, and I hope it
will be continued during the summer
months. In this connection the English exchanges have a good deal to
say now-a-days on the subject of
automobiling, and its effect in developing better roads. English roads
are proverbially good, but country
roads, which are not always macadamized, are cut up badly by the swift
vehicle, in consequence there has
been a dead set against thc motor
which has turned to a demand for the
construction of hard surface roads,
and this is now being developed to a
very large extent, and will be paid for
by an increased motor tax, so that
once more good comes out of evil
even though the evil is "a devil
wagon.''

Oriental Cream
OB MAGICAL BEAUTIFIES
BEAUTY THAT LASTS.
Where is the woman who has not
the praiseworthy desire to enhance
her personal charms and preserve as
long as possible her delightful power
of enchantment, which lasts as long
as her beauty? The Oriental Cream,
prepared by Dr. T. Felix Gouraud, of
New York City, is a harmless preparation for preserving the delicacy
of the complexion and removing
blemishes. It is the favorite toilet
article of the leading professional
artists, who owe so much of their
popularity to their personal charms.
Scarcely a star dressing room in the
land is without Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, which is the most wholesome
and perfect beautifier known. Druggists will supply you. No. 8.

Plagiarism
By BOHEMIAN.
There arc some words in the English language which cannot bc defined
and plagiarism is one. Any definition which 1 have met with, or which
1 can conceive, is inadequate to convey thc full and accurate meaning of
the word. Most of them go too far
and charge a man with stealing when
he has cither elaborated, or perhaps
furnished another illustration of the
old adage that "Great minds run in
grooves." ft should not be a matter
of surprise that two men should think
of the same subject at the same time,
or that having been similarly educated, and trained in the same environment, and being further of the same
cast of thought should develop their
common idea along the same line.
One may carry the comparison further and agree that it is not remarkable under this given set of conditions that the two men should relate
their story or state their conclusion
in almost, if not exactly, identical
words. And yet whenever such a
thing occurs the cry of plagiarism is
raised and it is at once concluded
that thc offender has stolen someone
else's brains.
A London writer of moderate fame
recently attacked Jack London and
charged him with stealing wholesale
one of his best incidents, and converting it into a short story. Harris
took advantage of London's trip in
the Snark to unknown lands to attack him viciously, and,everyone who
knew the wandering Bohemian counted on lively doings when he got back,
ancl found what had been happening.
This expectation has been realized,
and the two are now conducted a
gladiatorial contest in the London
press, with threats of legal proceedings looming in the background.
Volumes would not detail all the celebrated instances in which the charge
of plagiarism has been brought
against eminent literary men. Possibly the one which the world will
remember longest, at any rate the
literary world, is the case of Chatter-
ton, the boy poet, although hc still
has his defenders, and even all the
authorities are not convinced that his
work was not his own.
1 well remember a remarkable instance of similarity which had an
equally remarkable result. Somewhere
about twenty-five years ago a story
was published by Arrowsmith's of
Bristol which attained world-wide notoriety, ran into many editions, made
a fortune for the writer and established some kind of ephemeral fame.
The book was entitled "Called Back,"
and thc author was Hugh Conway, an
obscure Bristol clerk. The term
"Called Back," was suggested by an
incident in the book which treated of
the recovery, or calling back, of the
heroine from a state of temporary insanity to soundness, lt was a dramatic incident, and an enthralling and
suggestive study. Thc story revolved
around it, ancl thc treatment was so
dramatic and picturesque as to assure
the success of the book. Its first discoverer was Henry Labouchere, who
wrote it up in the columns of Truth
as "the book of the week," and so
ensured for it a world wide advertisement. So far so good; Hugh Conway
wrote several short stories after tllis
but none of them were interesting,
ancl indeed it would not be unfair to
say that they were absolutely devoid
of merit. Within a few years of the
appearance of "Called Back" hc died.
One day 1 was induced to read a
book written by the once popular, ancl
extremely prolific American Novelist,
E. P. Roc. Judge of my surprise to
find towards thc end of the book a
precisely similar incident, with the
plot the same, the method of treatment thc same, ancl the wording of
several pages almost identical. I
spent a long time in comparing the
two books as they lay side by side ou
my desk, and 1 have never yet been
able to decide whether thc Bristol
clerk stole not only the plot, but
whole paragraphs verbatim from the
American Novelist, or whether the incident is to be explained on the
grounds which I stated at the commencement of this article.
There is one other possible explanation, whicli of course common sense
would ionit, but which in the light
of present clay research into the occult might not bc so utterly impossible. What about Sir Oliver Lodge's
"Ether Theory?" What about thc possibility   of   suggestion   passing   from
one mind to another, annihilating distance and space, and prompting not
merely the thought but the very
words in which that thought should
be expressed. 1 need hardly say that
with such a theory 1 have no sympathy, but during the last fifty years
one has had to accept many ideas,
especially in thc realms of science,
with which one had no sympathy, and
within the last ten there havc been
startling developments along the line
of suggestion and auto-suggestion.
Mere 1 leave the matter, for charity
will incline one to dismiss the idea
of conscious appropriation of another man's work as long as there
is any other possible explanation. If
the Jack London—Harris case gets
into the court it will be interesting
to read the defence, and to note
whether science comes to the aid of
thc alleged "plagiarist."

Sporting Comment
The result of the Vancouver-Westminster lacrosse match last Saturday
when the champions went down to
defeat before the Terminal city players came as a greastssurprise to many
supporters of the-v-Royal City team,
but after the gairffis that have been
played this season it was expected
that the Vancouver team would win
but not by such ajjjrge score. From
press reports the game was fast and
clean, the Vancouver players showing good form ancl they are confident
of repeating in the game this afternoon, ln this match they are handicapped by playing in New Westminster, but from reports the New
Westminster team will be considerably weakened by the absence of several of their best players. The unfortunate accident to Alex Turnbull is a
decided setback to the champions as
he was always considered the mainstay of the team. With these players
off the team I naturally look for Vancouver to win but the score will not
be as large as last Saturday.
In referring to lacrosse I havc been
asked to express my opinion on the
New Westminster and Vancouver
teams in comparison with the Eastern
aggregations. The result of the New
Westminster-Tecumseh games shows
that the Westerners have it on thc
champions of the East and are acknowledged to bc the best in Canada
Thc victory of the Vancouver team
over Westminster and the closeness
of the former games show that the
Terminal City bunch arc not very far
behind. After comparing the work of
thc two Western teams 1 do not think
that I will bc contradicted when I say
that as present constituted New Westminster and Vancouver possess thc
two best lacrosse teams in Canada.
Thc brilliant showing made by
Brook Viao and Harry Beasley at the
Dominion championship meeting in
Winnipeg last Saturday cannot fail
to make every loyal Victorian proud
of their young representatives. To
compete with the best amateurs in
Canada and win their share of prizes
is something that every athlete cannot do, and for these two boys to
travel half way across Canada to meet
the pick of the Dominion and make
the showing they did is something
their most ardent supporters hardly
looked for. While referring to these
athletes I must not overlook W. G.
Findlay, Physical Director of the Y.
M. C. A., who, more than any one,
has been responsible for getting these
boys in the condition they were to
win these victories. Mr. Findlay has
the right idea about young athletes
ancl it is to be hoped that the youngsters who have been doing good work
around Victoria this season will receive thc same support as Viao and
Beasley.
Although an attempt was made to
put a stop to the horse races at the
Willows, they are still running and
in such a maimer that no person who
has been to the track can find any
fault. While several, people who have
heard things say they arc not being
run as they should bc, 1 think if they
were to visit the—track once they
would be convinced that they were
wrong.

Linoleums
Altogether the most satisfactory
floor covering for kitchen, pantry,
bathroom or hall is Linoleum. It is
the most satisfactory to the home-
keeper because it is most easily kept
clean ancl to the whole family makes
these rooms decidedly attractive.
Linoleum, if it is good, will last for
years. And when you are buying
linoleum be careful to purchase only
goocl sorts. Cost may be a little
.more (many times it is the same and
less) than "seconds" or damaged
pieces, but the "first" quality is cheapest in the end. Our linoleums are
"firsts"—"firsts" from the foremost
makers in the World. We buy in tremendous quantities ancl are thus enabled to offer interesting values. No
better qualities are made and these
prices will compare favorably with
any quoted anywhere—whether on
firsts or seconds. Pleased to show
you many new patterns.

There Is Nothing Uncertain
About a Gas Stove
Tlie flame is as hat at the beginning as it ever gets, it is no hotter today than yesterday.
If yon have something to cook which takes hours, set the stove right, go aAvay and do your
shopping if you like, and you'll find the gas just exactly  as you left it hours before.
Let one of our men set up a gas range in your kitchen
and you'll have the most modern, convenient and
economical cooking apparatus of the age. The great
advantage of gas over the dirt, smell and danger
attendant on the use of oil is obvious to all. Gas
is the safest of all fuel,—no danger of turning over,
exploding or other accidents.
When you come to talk of economy gas is far in the
lead. If you have gas, there are no more backaches
from lifting heavy coal scuttles or chopping wood.
No kindlings to cut. No cinders to carry out. No
more dirt from removing ashes. With gas you can
make tea or cook a regular course dinner in one-half
the time you can with a coal or Avood stove.
Gas is the ideal fuel summer or winter.
Gas is a pleasant luxury all the year round, but in summer time it is indispensable. Visit
our showrooms and allow us to practically demonstrate the great merits of gas for cooking
purposes. We would like to show you the very newest ideas in gas stoves and gas
ranges.    Easy monthly payments if you desire to purchase on that plan.
