LAND SETTLEMENT
The article which appeared in last
week's issue of The Week has been widely
discussed ancl has brought many communications with the request that the subject
be followed up in greater detail. The public interest in land settlement and in the
resolutions first published in The Week
would be remarkable if it were not so obvious that the future welfare of the country is so intimately bound up with the development of farming. The question most
frequently asked in the numerous letters
received is "what additional benefit the
Province would derive from the institution of a Portfolio of Agriculture when
at the present time the Finance Minister
is also Minister of Agriculture and bas an
able Deputy in Mr. W. E. Scott?" The
answer of The Week to this question is
that the subject is too big for divided attention, and that the time has arrived
when .the most capable Minister should
devote the whole of his time and ability to
dealing with what is undoubtedly both a
difficult problem and a pressing need.
Briefly, it may be stated that fuller detailed information witli respect to lands
available for preemption or purchase
should be readily accessible not only at
he Provincial Building's, but at all local
Government agencies. Next, the Minister
should consider what means, if any, the
Government could legitimately adopt of
encouraging the immigration of suitable
persons who would come for the purpose
of cultivating and not selling the land.
This might include moderate financial
aid towards transportation expenses,
which are so much heavier between the
Old Country and British Columbia than
between the Old Country and the Eastern
Provinces as to place us at a disadvantage.
It has been urged, and the matter is at
piny rate deserving of consideration, that
the Government should finance a portion
[of the heavy cost of clearing land, say a
percentage determined by the area actual-
y cleared by the settler ancl that a first
'barge should be placed on the* land to
.insure the re-payment of the sum advanc-
d with interest. In addition it is perfectly certain that some active agency is
equired to counteract the misleading and
nalicious .statements systematically cir-
nlated in the Old Country with respect
o conditions in the Dominion. The writ-
ir of this paragraph read a lengthy ex-
ract from an English paper of doubtful
status, but extensive circulation—John
lull—to the Conservative Convention at
Nelson. Tlie importance of thc article
vns pooh-poohed at the time by some who
vere not familiar with the paper in ques-
iori, and witli the very general dissemin-
ition of such falsehoods throughout the
■ural districts in England. It is nob a
ittle significant that since the Convention
be City of Winnipeg has taken legal
iroceedings against "John Bull" for the
rablication of the article quoted. The
Vgent-General, Mr. J. H. Turner, is do-
ng excellent work, but a bigger and a
tronger organisation is necessary. Our
publicity agents are being beaten on the
bound by unscrupulous American advertisers whose one business it is to decry
mucin. The only way to deal with this
[•ast and vital matter is to place it in the
iands of tlie most capable Minister that
an be found, and allow him to develop a
lolicy which will cover the requirements
f the moment. The importance of this is
mphasisecl by the astounding surrender
f the Dominion Government as outlined
n. tho public works reports of the new Ke-
iprocity Agreement, which will seriously
ripple the agricultural industry of this
'rovince.
FORT GEORGE
There are some things which hurt the
public interests as well as the private investor. Unfortunately, both have suffered for something like a year in consequence of the dispute which has raged in
connection with the location of the Government offices at Fort George. Publicity
of a very undesirable character has been
given to the Province in a series of disgraceful articles appearing in "Toronto
Saturday Night," which have now been
traced to the promoters of South Fort
George Townsite, which is distant about
three miles from the townsite of the future. A Vancouver Weekly has administered a well-merited castigation to these
this statement is made with full knowledge of the local conditions acquired on
the spot. Under these circumstances, is it
not possible for the Government to make
up its mind at once ancl by locating its
offices put an end to an unseemly conflict
which would matter very little if it only
affected the parties directly concerned,
but which matters a great deal under the
circumstances ?
DEXTER GRANTS
Mr. W. P. Marchant was quite justified
in calling the attention of the City Council and the general public to the irregularity, not to say illegality, of the grant made
last year to induce the General Methodist
Premier McBride's Manifesto
on the Reciprocity
Agreement
"While I do not wish to take an alarmist view of the Reciprocity
arrangements that have been laid before the House at Ottawa, it is abundantly
evident from a perusal of proposals that if adopted they will inflict very
serious injury to this Province.
"As he knows the conditions prevailing here, surely we may look to Mr.
Templeman to protect our interests and to bring about some modification of
the very drastic changes it is proposed to adopt.
"Take for instance the free entry into Canada of fruit, dairy products and
agricultural produce generally. This means an injury to our agricultural
classes that will be most severe. In the first place it will put the markets of
of the Prairie Provinces in the hands largely of the Americans, who can even
under present conditions compete there with our fruit growers and with those
of Eastern Canada.
"In British Columbia the fruit industry, by great, effort is being built up,
and it must be remembered that in the States to the South, where the industry
is an old established one, with very large areas of cleared land, it costs very-
much less to produce fruit, than it does here, where we are endeavouring to-
settle our lands, and where the advantage of a tariff enables us to have a good
market in the Prairies.. .To remove this advantage will most seriously injure
our efforts to settle and build up the Province.
"The same thing applies to the other branches of agriculture, and to make
our market free to the United States, will not only reduce greatly the prices
our farmers are now getting, but in those things like butter, eggs and poultry
of which our output has not yet equalled the demand, the result will be that
instead of importing from other parts of Canada, these will be shipped to us
from Washington, Oregon and California and the trade with Ontario and
other Eastern Provinces will cease. This will not only affect the Canadian
farmer but will lessen the volume of traffic on our transportation line and
benefit those to the South.
"The free entry of lumber from the United States will also be most serious
to our timber industry, throwing the market of the Prairies largely into the
hands of the Americans, and will also lessen the trade of Canadian transportation lines.
"Looking over the whole matter as set out in the despatches from Ottawa,
I cannot see in what way the proposals can be of any benefit to Canada. The
country has been progressing well, times have been prosperous and the people
contented; and the advantages to be attained by the proposed changes are,
to my mind, wholly in favour of the United States. In Canada the effect will
be to disorganize trade conditions, injure our industries and our Canadian
lines of traffic, for the benefit of the Americans."
gentlemen (.), but the pity of it is that
a conflict* of private interests should have
given a black eye to one of the most important and promising districts in the
Province. As long as the site of the Government offices remains unsettled these
opposing interests will continue to advertise two localities miles apart as the true
Fort George Townsite. They cannot both
be right. Consequently outside investors
are being deceived and the inevitable reaction witli disastrous results to Ibe
Province will take place. The tOAvnsite
must ancl will be where the railway and
railway station are located by the G. T.
P. AVherover else they may be located, it
cannot possibly be at South Fort George.
The Avest bank of the Nechaco furnishes
the only possible route to the Pacific and
Conference to foregather in Victoria. The
AVeek is unalterably opposed to any such
form of bribery, and believes that it is
beneath the dignity of any Church or self-
respecting organization to accept a "consideration" for holding its sittings in any
particular place. The Methodist Conference has to meet somewhere; it was open
to invitations from various cities; probably other places as well as Victoria were
willing to offer money inducements on the
general principle tliat it is a benefit to a
town to be honoured by the presence of
such a notable Conference. Viewed in
this light and as a piece of up-to-date advertising no doubt there are some people
who think that the City got its money's
worth for the investment of a certain grant.   Thc fact that the Mayor and
Council had joined in the invitation might
appear to carry with it some obligation of
a financial character. But when all is said
and done the principle is wrong, not to
say vicious, and the precedent a dangerous
one, The Week believes that on due consideration the respective heads of the
Methodist Church would come to the conclusion that this passing of the hat round
outside the ranks of their own organization
ill comports with the dignity of a.great
historic Church. It is a shifting of the
responsibility from the shoulders of its
own members to those of the general public, whose object in endorsing a monetary
grant could hardly fail to be of a purely
mercenary character.
INCREASES IN SALARIES
The AVeek notes with peculiar gratification the movement for substantial increases in the salaries of the Schoolteachers of the City. It is rather late in
the day, but all things come to those who
wait, and The AVeek has for five years persistently advocated better pay for the men
and women who are entrusted with the
care of our children. It holds that the
teaching profession is at once the most
honourable and the most important of any;
that it demands the services of (lie best
trained and the most finely organised men
ancl women in the country, and that the
remuneration hitherto has not been such as
fo attract this class. The increases now
proposed, whilst far beW what The Week
favours, are substantial, and. should bear
fruit in many ways which will inure to the
public benefit. The proposal to increase
the salary of the Mayor and the allowances
to Aldermen is a reasonable one and should
not meet with the slightest opposition. If
conditions in this country were such as to
place at the services of the community the
time and ability of men of wealth and
leisure, allowances of this kind would be
unnecessary, but such is not the case, and
The AVeek favours a reasonable payment
on the ground that the ratepayers should
have the full right to demand efficient service from Mayor and Aldermen, which is
out of the question when instead of a consideration there receive what is practically
a "pourboire." By nil means pay them
nnd pay them well, and then demand a
"quid pro quo."
THE PUBLIC SERVICE ACT
The fire-eating member for  Nanaimo
fell foul of the  Minister  for  Education
this week because of some slight amendments proposed to the Public Service Act.*
Ile took the ground that* the proposal was
nn admission of weakness, But; Dr. Young
hnd no difficulty in pointing out* that it
was nn evidence of strength.    Iu fact it
may safely he snid thnt never hns nn entirely new Act of a drastic character, and
covering -an enormous amount of detail,
been so perfectly cast in the first instance.
After a year's working three comparatively trivial amendments is all that is required.    The AVeek would have been better pleased if the member for Nanaimo
had for once opened his heart nnd joined
in the universal  chorus of praise with
which the operation, of Dr. Young's measure has been greeted.    For the first time
the Public Service* of the Province has
been placed upon a firm, honest, English
basis.    Admission to   the   Service   i's by
competitive examination, the only test being that of general fitness.    Tho various
branches have been graded, nnd men now
mount (lie ladder step by step as the re-
stilt of faithful and efficient service, with
nn increase of salary awaiting them at
ench promotion.   Finnlly, an ag^ limit has
been assigned which   will in   the   future

At The Street
Corner
 By TH-E LOUNQER 	
Undoubtedly the feature of the
Aveek Avhich has elapsed since I last
sat down to Avrite my column has
been the great re-union of Old Country Public School Boys, which was
inaugurated by a banquet at The Empress Hotel on Saturday evening last.
It is admitted on almost all sides that
the inspiration whicli brought together so many who had undertaken the
same course of education, and in
many cases had been at the same
school Avas a happy one, and that
the idea of forming an Association
on the same lines Avas popular was
eA'idenced by the large number who
appeared in the Board of Trade
Rooms on the following Monday to
discuss the lines on which the said
Association should be formed. The
Association is now a living reality
and as its membership embraces tlle
whole Province it should become a
vital force in the community.
* *   *
But every rose has its thorns. I
had not intended to make any remarks as to the catering by The
Empress Hotel as I was afraid that
perhaps my hyper-critical nature
might be too carping, but I have
heard so many complaints with regard to this that I feel that I am
justified in voicing the indignation
which Avas felt on all sides as to the
money's worth provided. The decorations were excellent, but man cannot live by flowers alone and there
was precious little else to live by.
men found their fish tainted; there
were no sweets and there Avas no
fruit. Incidentally there were no
salt-spoons. The service Avas bad owing to under-staffing. I am convinced
that any first-class hotel in town,
provided that it had a large enough
banquetting room, could have put up
a superior dinner at less cost. These
remarks are not made in a spirit of
hungry greediness, but because most
men hate to think that they are not
getting their moneys'-worth. I am
told that the Canadian Club found
exactly the same trouble when they
had their luncheons in The Empress.
It is up to the management of Avhat
is claimed to be one of the finest hotels in the Dominion to cater better
to customers who pay well.
* *   *
Another thorn is to be found in
the foliage and may be designated as
cither envy, malice or all uncharit-
ablencss. It is generally considered
that in this country the manner of
Avork, so long as it be honourable,
proves no detriment to the standing
of a man. But some person, or persons, I know not their names, started
a rumour that public-schoolmen who
were engaged in a certain class of
business Avould not be eligible to attend the dinner. I did not so understand the advertisements which appeared in nearly every paper in the
Province. A man had to enclose $2.50
and prove his public school standing;
there was nothing said about the
need  for  mentioning his occupation.
* *   *
The ancients had a comfortable
idea that they could propitiate thc
powers of evil by giving them nice
names. For instance, The Black Sea
they called "The Euxine" meaning
"hospitable to strangers," just because
it was the stormiest sea they knew
and was responsible for innumerable
wrecks. In like manner they spoke
of those ferocious females "The Furies" as "The Eutnenides" or "kindly
disposed ones" in the hope that thus
they would escape unpleasant pains
and penalties. In somewhat the same
strain the Romans who Avere fanatics
for discovering derivations Avould go
to any lengths to satisfy their ambition in this direction, even to the
heights of absurdity. For example,
the Latin for a grove is "lucus." Being unable to trace back the origin
of this word they connected it Avith
the verb "lucere" meaning "to shine
with light," and most illogically contended that a grove wns called "lucus"
because  there was no light  shining
there. Hence they had a proverb,
"lucus a 11011 lucendo," which has survived to our own day and is used
scoffingly when an appellation is notoriously inapplicable.
* *   *
Having thus completed my preamble I Avill go on to apply it to the
point which I have in vieAV. It seems
to me that the people of Victoria are
indulging in the same amusing, if illogical, practice. For instance Ave
have a street in James' Bay which
for some unknown reason is called
"Superior." The word itself is usually connected with some thing or
some person greater, either in quality or quantity than the average.
Lake Superior is so called because it
is the largest body of fresh water in
the world. The Mother Superior of
a convent is thus designated because
she is in authority over all the sisters, Advertisers always style their
goods "superior" because they wish
to make the unsuspecting customer
believe that he or she is really buying the best on the market. But why
is Superior Street so named? Is it for
its length? Government Street is
longer. Is it for its breadth? Yates
Street is broader. No, it is because
it excels all the streets in the Bay
ancl most in the city for its mud and
darkness. From Oswego Street to
Menzies there is no light; the sidewalks are Avooden, the roadway is
quagmire. I see that the City Council has voted a million dollars for
street improvements; I am sorry to
see that Superior Street does not
benefit thereby. And, mind you, it
is an important street. It is the
main thoroughfare for car passengers
from the city to the Outer Wharf;
down a portion of it the Beacon Hill
cars run, but the descent or ascent
to the cars involves a Avade through
the filthiest of mud. Seeing that
such is the case and that there seems
to be no measure adopted for its relief, I propose that we throw hypocrisy to the winds, and encourage
those avIio Avould like to see some of
the street names changed and begin
with Superior Street. I move that it
henceforth be knoAvn as "Inferior"
Street.
* *   *
Simply as a matter of good advertising I think that it would pay the
City Fathers to consider seriously
the proposition of doing something
to make the approach to Victoria
from the Outer Wharf more attractive to visitors arriving from distant
ports. At present the first thing
whicii must attract their attention is
the Chemical Works, useful but uot
beautiful; then a broken down set of
palings surrounding the vacant block
next to the Dallas Hotel, pailings
whicii recall Goldsmith's line in "The
Deserted Village": "Beside you straggling fence that skirts the way."
Then conies that dreary, uninteresting car-ride up to the city. I can imagine no more unprepossessing state
of affairs and should never be surprised to hear that the first introduction to Victoria had never been obliterated in the minds of some, even by
the beauties which they had encountered on every side later on.
* *   *
Talking of street improvements
brings mc down to thc work which
the Worswick Paving Company arc
at present doing on Langley Street.
It is a curious thing how quickly
things can be done and how well they
can be done when they are left in the
hands of a competent company instead of being muddled along with by
a Municipal body. The Worswick
Company have done and are doing
good work, and avcII deserve the eco-
niums which are showered upon
them.
* *   *
There are some things past finding
out and one of them is Avhy the Victoria Canadian Club is so extremely
unfortunate in the class of speakers
it occasionally entertains. There is
no excuse for having still further
lowered the tone of this institution
by inflicting upon its long-suffei-
ing patrons the proprietor of Fels-

Winnipeg and Vancouver got stung

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
The Queen of The Moulin Rouge
On Tuesday night the Victoria
Theatre was packed and large numbers were unable to gain admittance
to see a so-called Musical Comedy or
Extravaganza, entitled "The Queen
of The Moulin Rouge." The excitement was due  to the fact that this
I production might fairly be classed
ivith those things ivhich "having turned the ivorld upside down, came
hither also." It may be a poor compliment to the audience, or at any
rate a section, but the fact cannot be
denied that the rusliivas clue to expectations of something spicy.    The
[police of Los Angeles and San Francisco had interfered, insisting on some
simple additions to the extremely
simple garb of the ladies of the chorus
and ballet. They had also suggested
some change in the arrangements for
displaying the so-called artists'
models. The Californian press had
spread itself in an almost unprecedented manner in denouncing the lubricity of the production, and as these
things cannot be kept quiet there ivere
few people in Victoria who had not
heard at any rate of the reputation
of "The Queen of The Moulin
Rouge." The advance notices published in the Victoria daily papers
ivere not calculated to allay the excitement; words ancl phrases wcre
freely admitted whicii ivould never
have passed a press censor anxious
to protect the public, and the consequence ivas that a third-rate production possessing only one meritorious
feature, thc pantomimic act at the
Rat Mort, packed the theatre at prices
fifty per cent, higher than those
charged in Seattle and Vancouver.
The scene referred to ivas excellent
and the comedian who played the
king of Orcania was ~;uioubtedly
one of thc best ever seen in Victoria.
But the production as a whole was
worse than mediocre; most of the
performers were both coarse and
common; there was not a decent
singing voice in the troupe, and it.
is now easy to 'Hieve that the press
notices published in California were
part of an organized scheme to advertise a professedly salacious production whicii is no sense corresponded* with the representations.
There is one matter, however, which
cannot be thus lightly passed over.
I refer to the absolute indecency of
the so-called artists' models. Personally, I have no hesitation in saying that under no circumstances
should a model bc exhibited on a
public stage without a westige of
clothing from head to foot except
skin-tights. But suppose I am regarded as too prudish in this matter, ancl suppose it is all right for
young girls still Ayearing curl ribbons to be taken by their elders to
a show of this kind, I claim that
there is a ivide difference between
the artistic features of a model represented by a young girl of beautiful figure, such as an artist would
employ, and a woman of more than
mature development who has long
lost the lines of beauty and whose
exposure is not merely ludicrous but
vulgar and indecent. This description applies to several of the women
who were posed in the scene referred
to, ancl I do not hesitate to say that
such an exhibition should not have
been permitted. I will also undertake to say that it will never be repeated  in  Victoria.
A Man's World
The management of the Victoria
Theatre presented an entirely acceptable and admirably acted play on
Thursday night to star Mary Mannering. Probably the vast majority
of sane people would disagree with
the views of the author, and would
consider that the conclusion was
lame, if not absolutely impotent. But
unfortunately, American plays now-
-days do not reach a high standard,
and it ivas therefore not difficult for
Miss Rachel Crothers to produce
something decidedly belter than the
average.
Apart from some crudities in con
struction and an obvious absence of
stage-craft, it may be said that the
play ivas interesting and clever. The
real trouble is that the thesis is false
and when all is over the inevitable
question "cui bono" springs to the
lips.
Presumably Miss Crothers is in favour of the single standard of morality for men and Avomen and Miss
Crothers may be right. There is a
theory not altogether exploded that
some day most, if not all of us, ivill
have Avings and wear .a ,halo, but
meanwhile the man ivho assumes that
this saintliness of character has already been universally attained is apt
to receive several rude shocks and
to become a cynic. Moreover, Miss
Crothers was simply experimenting
in the rawest possible manner when
she assumed that a normal, affectionate woman of strong mind and willpower such as she depicted her heroine, would throw down the man with
whom she was madly in love because
of a moral lapse ten years ago. Miss
Crothers makes her do* this, and
again I say that Miss Crothers may
be right, but until she convinces a
majority of people, her hypothesis
does not rest on a working basis.
So  much  for  the play.
Of the players it may fairly be said
that Miss Mannering headed an excellent company. She herself had
the best part in which J. have ever
seen her; a part perfectly adapted
to her obvious limitations. Miss
Mannering is safe with the average
drawing-room play which demands no
heroics and which does not draw
too largely on the intellectual capacities of the actress. So in Miss
Crothers' play  she  was  at  her best.
Her support was all that could be
desired. My old friend Joseph
Ethier has developed much in the
last ten years since I met him in thc
Proctor's Stock Company in Her Majesty's Theatre, Montreal: In "A
Man's World" he was strong, virile
and convincing, and his restrained
passion was admirably depicted. The
most artistic work was clone by
Charles Wyngate, a London actor
who might have been born with a
German accent, so well did he manage, it. A perfect little piece of
character acting ivas that of Miss
Helen Ormsby, the "superfluous woman." On the whole I was highly
pleased ivith the production and the
company is good enough for a
much  better play.
The New Grand Theatre
Undoubtedly The Cycling Brunettes justify the claim they make in
their advertisement that they defy
gravity. 1 have seen many cycling
turns and ivas prepared to be rather
bored, thinking that there could be
nothing original. But I ivas mistaken. The marvellous performers,
are worth going miles to see, and
with all their cleverness they manage to introduce a comic element.
Reouble Simms is an eccentric but
gifted chalk ancl talk artist; from.a
smudge he elaborates anything from
a Chinaman to a landscape. Raivls
& Von Kaufman present an amusing
little play dealing with the proverbial nigger and the exacting housewife. Harry Gilbert has a goocl
voice, but with the exception of his
Italian songs, 1 do not think that
his accent ivhen depicting other nationalities is up to the mark. The
loc dancer in Kelly & Lafferty's turn
is distinctly goocl and graceful. I
should like to say a Avord complimenting Herr Nagel on the success
whicii has been attending his descriptive overture "The Battle." It is
a clever piece of composition and
arrangement and was very well received.
The  New  Crystal
A splendid film illustrating the
beauties of Christiania, the capital of
Norway, was on the screen during
the middle of the week at Mr. Jamieson's theatre. I,am glad to see that
these geographical lilms are becoming more common every week.
Pathos was adequately represented
by "The Refuge" and Comedy by
"Bertie's Rainstorm." The sightseer
may ahvays be sure of variety at the
above   house.

BayeuxtoCaen
BY BOHEMIAN
There arc few more conveniently
situated spots on the European Continent for a Britisher to spend a foreign holiday than the coast of Normandy, and few that offer more attractions. The cyclist finds here
some of the ideal roads in the world;
the antiquarian can indulge in his
favourite hobby to his heart's content, and the mere holiday loafer can
find the peace and quiet ivhich his
soul loveth.
The easiest way to reach this country so full of charm from London is
to take the train to Southampton and
thence cross over to Cherbourg. The
boat arrives in ample time to allow
of a plentiful breakfast at L'Hotel de
I'Aigle, where the good hostess dotes
on the British tourist and yet does
not overcharge him. Cherbourg, as
everybody knoivs, is one of the first
naval bases of France, but the harbour bar is so shallow that it can
only be used at high water for ingress and egress. On the quay is a
fine statue of Napoleon gazing across
the narrow strip of blue which he so
vainly hoped to bridge with a French
navy. But there is little to see at
Cherbourg, and the traveller is soon
glad to take a seat in one of the
luxurious carriages of Le Chemin de
fer de l'Ouest. France is supposed
to boast of the fastest trains in the
world on the Northern Railway and
the Sud Express is another fast
traveller, but for slowness commend
me to the train running from Cher
bourg to Paris. If I remember
rightly it takes four hours to reach
Bayeux, which is about a fourth of
the distance. But the journey is
ivorth it.
Bayeux is one of the most picturesque old towns that I have ever
visited; it breathes antiquity. Opposite the station is a comfortable little
■cafe where an excellent omelette may
be obtained at the ridiculously cheap
price which prevails all over rural
France. The walk from the station
to the toivn is about a mile in length,
passing through an avenue of lime
trees, bordered towards the end by
quaint old French houses. The traveller making any stay in this place
should put up at .'Hotel du Luxembourg, a truly comfortable inn with
a delightful garden in the rear, a
most excellent spot in ivhich to sit
to sip a cup of coffee and smoke a
cigarette.
But .the fame of Bayeux lies neither
•with its hotel nor with its pictur-
.esqueness. Here is to be found the
celebrated tapestry worked by Matilda, wife of William the Conqueror,
after she had seen her warrior husband depart to gain a new kingdom.
In no wise does this tapestry represent ivhat we are accustomed to associate with thc word. It is no magnificent wall covering, but merely a
long strip of narrow canvas about a
foot to a foot and a half wide which
circles the partitions of the Museum
in seemingly endless coils. Merely
thc outlines of the figures are ivorked
and the background is left a bare
ivhite. Thc various episodes of the
expedition are told in the crudest
manner, and, truth to tell, I think
that most people are somewhat disappointed with it. But still it is
genuine and one naturally has an instinctive reverence for work which
dates back about 850 years.
There is a fine cathedral at Bayeux
but I do not remember anything
worthy of particular mention in it,
unless it be the four cuspidors which
are placed in the chancel, There has
been a Bishop of Bayeux from early
times; readers of history will remem
ber that Odo, brother to the Conqueror, ivas Bishop of Bayeux and
left in charge of Normandy during
the Duke's absence.
From Bayeux a comic opera railway, runs along the Coast to Cour-
seuilles, of which I shall speak later.
I call it comic because it is a sort of
a cross between a railway and a car
line. The motive power is steam,
but the lines run on open road and
wander from one side to the other in
a most ingenuous manner. Wood is
thc fuel used, and I have known the
train to stop between stations whilst
the engineer gets out to cut some
more ivood from the roadside. Similarly, I have seen him and his assistant get doivn with buckets by the
side of a stream to replenish the
thirsty boilers. There are several little villages on the line, two of them
being favourite watering-places for
city folk. One, Arromanches, is
reached by a branch line. This is a
gay little spot and always crowded
during the summer. Just above the
sands are the town washing troughs.
Here every day the women may be
seen doing their laundry work in the
open air. There is good hotel accommodation and a splendid promenade. A few miles* further on we
come to Asnelles-Sur-mer. Here I
spent two summer holidays. It is the
most delightful little place imaginable.
Primitive to a degree, but filled with
the nicest kind of visitors, chiefly
from Paris. Must I confess also that
the landlady at l'Hotel de la Plage
not only knows how to cook but sees
to it that her subordinates do? The
bathing here is excellent; at high tide
the water comes right up to the esplanade, whilst at loiv, there are miles
and miles of the best kind of sand.
And I never remember a spot of rain
all the six weeks I spent there. So
popular has this little place become
that it has been found necessary to
build an annex to the hotel. From
Asnelles to Arromanches by the
shore it is only a matter of three
miles, and from the latter place a
tramp along the cliffs brings one to
Port en Bessein, a fishing toivn of
some importance.
All this time we are in the Calvados country, famous for its apples. It
is not to be wondered at therefore,
that the staple drink of the people
is cider, a good harsh, rough cider.
None of your sweet stuff, but something with a bite to it. It is supplied
free at meals; it is dangerous, of
course, to drink the water, as sanitation has not found its ivay very extensively into these country districts.
And the shrimps! Real shrimps, not
the prawn variety, masquerading under their more delicate brethren's
name. These appear at least once a
day in very large quantities on each
table. My mouth waters as I write
about them. Oh, for the shrimps and
cider of Calvados! All these villages
have their Casino, whicii is not, however, used for gambling but for
dances and occasional entertainments.
It is the general custom after dinner
at the hotel to stroll over to the Casino and invoke the terpsichorean
muse. No introductions are necessary and the worse French you talk
the better your partner ivill like you.
But how much more polite the French
are than ourselves! They never allow
a smile to disconcert the Anglo-Saxon struggling vainly with an accent
he does not understand and ivith idioms which he never will; on the contrary after a particularly atrocious
blunder they will congratulate Monsieur on the progress ivhich he is making.
It is somewhat amusing to lvatch a
party of French sportsmen starting
out for a day's shooting. When dejeuner is finished these heroes array
themselves in sporting costume, sling
their guns over their backs and bid an
affectionate   farewell   to   their  wives

and families. What a leave-taking-
there is! A stranger would think that
these doughty ones were going out to
war. One more kiss all round, one
last caress for the child and then
with a waving of handkerchiefs and
a blowing of kisses the hunting party
sets out. Lets us see them as they
return. Round the corner they come
and that they have had a good day's
sport is obvious from the smiling
countenances. "What's the bag?" we

Most Beautiful in the Dominion
St. George's church, Rossland, B.C.,
has become the happy possessor of
what is probably one of the most
beautiful sacred paintings in Canada,
ivhich has been painted and presented by one of the foremost lady artists in England, Miss Ellen Wright-
son. Miss Wrightson, who has had
some most striking pictures in the
Royal Academy, heard of the wonderful life ancl work of Father Pat, and
offered to paint three panels to fill
the frame of the rcredos whicii he
erected at the back of the altar in
the old church, and whicii was transferred to the memorial church. The
subject is our Saviour as the good
Shepherd surrounded by His flock,
and carrying a lamb in His arms, and
the treatment is most beautiful and
devotional.

The Difference Between a
Carpenter and a Judge
Prairie Cities Suffer
Two serious fires have been reported in Western Canada cities. At
Moosejaw, Sask., the office and plant
of the "Times" newspaper has been
destroyed with a loss of $50,000, whilst
at Brandon the Maple Leaf Milling
Company's elevator has been burned
and the plant partially destroyed. The
loss is $100,000.
A good deaj you imagine, no doubt. But not so much
after awl. They both work on the bench. One planes
and the other explains. One uses sharp saws, the other
wise saws. They both occasionally address themselves
to a panel. Certainly one is in the habit of chisseling,
ivhile the other punishes any kind of chisseling. But we
should auger (augur, we meant to say) that that is awl
the difference, unless one is handsome and thc other
a deal planer.
The difference betAveen G. H. Mumm & Co.'s champagne and other brands is very great. Oh, such a difference in the morning. There are 110 bad after-effects
if you stick to Mumm's. Look for the pink capsule when
you order a bottle of "Extra Dry." None genuine Avithout. Then you get a champagne that is absolutely pure
and good.

The Great Experiment
An Emotional Study
(By Leo Gordon)
The verandah of the United Ser-
A'ice Club, Calcutta, blazed with
light. In the garden beloiv, the fireflies like a thousand iridescent fairies held carnival. Sir Antony Donald stretched his limbs, finished his
"peg," and leant on the verandah railings looking into the night.
The world knew this man as one
of the stern, unsmiling Englishmen
who seem to seek no pleasure outside
their ivork, one of the stern-broAved
men ivho sacrifice love and its joys to
their thankless mistress duty.
A servant brought him a card. He
nodded, and presently a young man,
with the spring of life in his step,
rushed up with extended hand.
"It is good of you to see me, sir!"
They held hands a moment longer
than Ai-as necessary.
"Good? Well, take that seat. Have
you decided?"
"Yes, sir, I have. To-morroiv night
we catch the Bombay mail. In a
month the world ivill forget us. It
is not the first time a Avoman has left
the brute who legally owns her for
the man ivho lvants her."
"Your career?   Your prospects?"
"Career! Prospects! How could
they iveigh against the happiness of
the woman I love? Ah, sir! if you
only understood ivhat this lvoman's
love and happiness mean to me. This
is no guilty liaison. It is love, love.
Money is nothing to us."
He tossed his cigarette away, and
leaning forward continued:
"I am not an impulsive man, nor
a reckless youth. For seven years I
have suffered silently, fighting conscience, convention, and religious
scruples. There has only been one
woman in my life. For ten years
she has suffered agonies, mated to a
drunken beast. Not once in all these
years have her lips murmured. Her
dear blue eyes vainly tried to hide
the tragedy from mc." His voice
hardened, and his eyes flashed. "Dare
I repeat all she has suffered? Apart
from the thousand daily humiliations,
and the loathsome marital obligations
her refined nature suffered, he has
scourged her soul, beaten and foully
contaminated her pure body, till God
Himself ivill not permit the children
to live. Tell me, sir, can law of God
or man bind a ivoman after that?"
The grave voice, rich in tender sympathy, interposed. "My boy, it is an
old, sad story. Cruel despair is almost justified, for this is one of the
many wrongs from ivhich there is no
appeal. Only ivhen the laivs Ave make
affect the women we love do we see
the hideous injustice of them. But
all the ivrongs of the world cannot
be righted in a day. Despair embitters our souls, but there is no redress.
It is our misfortune to be victims of
our age, and the tardy step of progress."
The younger man moved uneasily in
his seat, but the determination in his
face never faltered.
"God helps those that help themselves," he said, "and I am not going
to throw away our happiness for the
threats of the ivorld. Love is the
end of all things, ancl so long as Ave
have love we shall bc richer than our
need."
Sir Antony sat up.   A change swept

Chinese  Investigation at  Vancouver
Side Lights on the Shining Lights of the Liberal Party with a Special Halo for The Hon. Wm. Templeman
"FIGHTING JOE'S" EVIDENCE
"I believe there is graft in every department of this city. Robert Kelly
is in on it. I suggest you call him
and Mr. Templeman and Ralph Smith.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier could stop it in
five minutes if he Avanted to. No one
can get a contract, an order or an appointment unless he buys it from Mr.
Kelly. He is seemingly permitted—
has been for nine years—to sell government places Avith the understanding that he finance campaigns at election time. The people have to buy
from Kelly everything they Avant.
There is' no Liberal party any more.
Graft lias permeated to every department in this city under Robert Kelly.
I am prepared to say I could prove
it Avere I an attorney in a case to investigate such a deplorable condition."*—Hon. Jos. ("Fighting Joe")
Martin, M.P., K.C, at enquiry.
"With the A'ieiv of leaving no stone
unturned to get the fullest possible information as to the alleged Chinese
irregularities, and putting the blame,
if any, Avhere it belongs, the royal
commission will issue a request for
the attendance from Ottawa, of Hon.
Mr. Templeman, Dominion Minister
of Mines, and Mr. O'Hara, Deputy
Minister of the Department of Trade
and Commerce.
Should these gentlemen leave Ot-
taiA'a at once, it will, of course, be a
Aveek before they can be here to give
their testimony,
Joseph Martin, K.C, M.P., was the
star Avitness Wednesday. His evidence was not exactly in regard to
the definite points of the enquiry, but
it Avas a scathing indictment of the
"graft" he believed had permeated
every department.
His ivas a meteoric appearance, and
he blazed alike on the commission, on
the Dominion government, on the
local Liberal executive, and Mr.
Robert Kelly, its chief, in particular.
His charges included the statement
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier Avas primarily to blame, and that the premier
could stop it all in five minutes if he
wanted to do so.
Tliat every department of the
Liberal government whicii spent
money or had any control in British
Columbia spent it through the Liberal
Organisation here, over ivhich Mr.
Robert Kelly was the head. THAT
MR. ROBERT KELLY HAD THE
CONTROL OF EVERYTHING IN
REGARD TO THE GOVERNMENT BUSINESS IN THE PROVINCE AND, IN RETURN, SUPPLIED FUNDS FOR ELECTION
CAMPAIGNS.    These  were  two of
the statements made by "Fighting
Joe," and listened to ivith absorbing
attention by the croivded assembly
who Avere present.
After thus speaking part of his
mind, and being evidetnly quite prepared to go on for a much longer
period on the subject of the Liberal
"graft," Mr. Martin retired from the
commission and ivent off on other
business.
During the day, Yip On and Yip
Suh Foy, his partner, Avere recalled
and made to furnish specimens of
their handwriting, whicii specimens
ivere handed over to Robert Sprott,
along with the original cables and the
cash book of the firm, for his examination and report.
T R. E. McINNES CONCLUDED
HIS EVIDENCE, AND DURING
ITS COURSE MENTIONED THAT
MR. FOSTER DID SAY TO HIM
THAT HON. MR. TEMPLEMAN
SAID: "FOSTER, I WANT THIS
THING TO STOP."
It appears, on the face ai things,
that this admission ivas responsible
for the decision to bring Mr. Templeman and Mr. O'Hara to give evidence here.
Evidence ivas given by Lee Kee, a
Chinese local merchant, ivho gave the
impression of being a reputable man,
although burdened ivith sixteen other
partners in his firm. Limited personal
liability, without statutory limitation,
appears to be a strong point ivith the
followers of Confucius.
J. H. McGill, Dominion immigration agent, struck a note whicii bore
the refreshing evidence of novelty
when he said that he believed that
some of the' "merchants" Avere
genuine, and that an injustice had
been done. It ivas pointed out to
him that Dr. Chang, the Chinese consul here, ivas not of the same opinion,
but he kept to his oavii idea.
Shum Moon, another Chinese merchant, is to be examined. Up to the
present time some 250 exhibits have
been put in as evidence.
A sensational feature of the day
was the statement alleged to have
been made by Mr. Wong offering
$2,000 to the person ivho would kill
Dai'id Leiv. The authority for this
was Hugh Matier, private secretary
to John Hendry."
ANOTHER SIDE LIGHT
In the maze of letters and telegrams which have come to light since
Mr. T. R. E. Mclnnes arrived from
Ottawa with his letter file the following letter to Mr. Gordon Grant from
Mr. Mclnnes gives another side light
on this kaleidoscopic extravaganza.
Here it is in full:
Ottawa, October I, 1910.
Gordon Grant,
Barrister, Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Gordon,—Re Pascoe River
Land Company, I duly received
your letter in this matter and acted
as suggested. There is nothing in
the talk of Oliver retiring this session—there has been a concerted
move to that effect, but it has fallen down—for the present, anyway.
One effect I think, however, will be
to make him take a wider view of
British Columbian matters, and to
recognize that in British Columbia
lands should be handled aud disposed of upon a different basis to those
in the Prairie Provinces. I think
there is a very fair chance of getting Avhat we want this session. I
drew upon you yesterday through
the Dominion Bank for $250 at
sight agreed upon.
Re CHINESE AFAIRS
I practically staked my reputation ivith the "Powers That Be" in
making good, provided I was given;
a free hand, and my .suggestions
followed. They have not gone back
on me—and am confident now will
back me to a finish—but the oppo-
sition has been fierce. This very
morning the Secretary of State
sent word to O'Hara to cancel appointment of yourself and Farris,
and appoint Senkler in your place.
O'Hara refused and appeal was
made to the Premier. I wired you
the result half an hour ago. This
is a big chance for Farris and yourself, Gordon—a keen interest is being taken over here in the matter,
especially in vieiv of the stand taken by Templeman, Ralph Smith,
Senkler, and the Liberal Executive
in behalf of the accused, and
against the investigators. The appointment temporarily of a ivhite
interpreter is done at Templeman's
request, and I dare say is all right.
I ivired the Judge on the 23rd instant that I ivas trying to have you
appointed, and for you to keep on
the opium trail. The opium affair
is still in abeyance—I Avant you in
that too. Expect can send some
definite word re opium next Tuesday,
Take a tip from me: You are not
antagonistic to any section or
member of the Liberal party; you
and Farris are simply prominent
young Liberals; well and favourably known to the Government;
your appointment is therefore
quite natural. Take that attitude—
don't let the other fellows have any
ground for making a split over this
affair—so far as you are concerned.
I hope the other fellows have not
yet any inkling that they are suspected over opium—hope to spring
that as a surprise on them like the
other. If later YIP ON thinks
best to skip out the Department
would be just as well pleased—unless of course you think your evidence is conclusive. We must prove
that YIP ON is YIP TING SAM
—we have that proof here—but it
is obtained from the Chinese Con-
sul-General confidentially and we
do not want to call upon him if it
can be avoided. Presume you have
tiie telegram code given Cedar; use
Slater 150 often if there should be
anything to wire which needs special secrecy.   Billy has it.
Regards to Farris. Tell him I
saw Killam on the way to Montreal
a week ago, and led him around to
talk a little of his (Farris') skill in
criminal matters. He praised it
highly—told him I did nit think
much of Macdonald as a criminal
lawyer—but intimated that I
thought you could do a clever
stunt in the criminal line yourself
when you tried hard.
Well, good luck to you both—
you are certainly getting advertising out of it over here—back Cedar
up all you can—I think you will all
make good—and that will increase
your public and my private prestige.
Sincerely yours,
T. R. E. McINNES.
LAURIER     WOULD      CANCEL
CHINESE HEAD-TAX
"T. R. E. Mclnnes, the parliamentary agent of Ottaiva was on the
witness stand the ivhole of the day
to-day, being examined and cross-
examined by G. E. McCrossan and
S. S. Taylor, respectively, and it is
likely that his further evidence ivill
occupy a considerable portion of tomorrow.
A great deal of the evidence of this
witness dealt with answering questions as to his real credentials to enter on the inquiry, an inquiry, said
Mr. Taylor, that had ruined men and
families, practically on suspicion. Mr.
M'clnnes, throughout the day appeared to resent having been brought
here, and gave the impression that he
had something more behind the
scenes, in the ivay of authority, than
he has yet disclosed. It was not his
practice, he said, to report anything
on mere suspicion, but he had ample
grounds for everything he had said
or clone.
Amongst the things that he said j
was the statement that SIR WILFRID LAURIER HAD SPOKEN
TO HIM OF THE ABOLITION
OF THE CHINESE HEAD TAX,
AND HE MENTIONED, GENERALLY, THAT THE PREMIER
HAD SUGGESTED WHAT A
GREAT THING IT WOULD BE
IN THE INTERESTS OF TRADE,
Another statement made by Mr'.
Mclnnes was that he thought that
Canada had blundered in every ivay
in its entire Chinese policy.
Code names for about a score of |
prominent government and local personages were disclosed and provoked
a great deal of merriment amongst
the crowded assembly. It ivas not
explained ivhy Mr. Robert Kelly's
code name  ivas  "Jew."
On Saturday the Avitness had given evidence along similar lines.
Mr. Mclnnes then set at rest the I
vexed question as to exactly Avhat his J
occupation is, but not very clearly.
Mr. Mclnnes is a parliamentary
agent, but he has never been officially
retained, either by the head of the
department in charge or by the head
of the secret sendee. He took no
orders from the secret service. He
had not been retained, as far as Chinese* matters were concerned. He was
really acting in an advisory capacity
to the immigration department generally, AND WAS OFFICIALLY
RETAINED TO LOOK INTO
THE WHOLE MATTER, AFTER
BRINGING THE FACTS TO THE
j KNOWLEDGE OF SIR WILFRID
I LAURIER ON THE OCCASION
OF HIS AVESTERN TOUR LAST
YEAR.
Like  one  other  of  the  gentlemen J
interested  in  this    inquiry,    he was
not, hoivever,  doing it  all  solely in
the  public   interest.    His  remuneration ivas stated to be $10 a daj', with 1
expenses and a pass.
Not least amongst the valuable recommendations made to Ottawa by
Mr. Mclnnes ivas one to the effect
that Chinese matters should not be
submitted to political appointees.
The witness also questioned the muddle which existed through the administration being in the hands of three
different government departments.
Several humorous touches enlivened the proceedings, the story of how
all the alleged members of the opium
"ring" were elected members of the
Anti-Opium League, Yip On additionally going to the extent of contribut- I
ing $300 to the cause, being a particular gem of real humor."
"THE GREAT EXPERIMENT'"
(Continued from Page 7)
over the tired, languid features. His
voice Avas changed.
"My boy, you are right. Love is
the one solace of humanity. Love is
the one divine gift of God to man;
but how many of us are worthy of
it? You are surprised at my speaking to you like this."
A night haivk startled them with
its cruel screech.
"I am going to re-open a buried
chapter of my life," and as he spoke
Sir Antony, the grim, silent official,
became a boy with a soul. His voice
ivas filled ivith a tenderness that no
man  had heard for twenty years.
"I also have loved one Avoman. She
was tiie wife of a friend. In his excesses hc became a brute. Her life
was a hell. I loved her as a boy;
while I struggled to win a name to
offer her, she married. I came home
to find her life lvhat it was.
"Sympathy inflamed the old passion.
I ivas strong and brave.   The cross
of life Aveighed lightly on my shoulders. We loved each other madly,
and I brought her to India. We suffered at first from the world, but my
love sufficed to shield her. No Avoman in the whole world could have
been more loving, more thoughtful.
"I forgot she was a woman. My
devotion became idolatry. How God
must have smiled. She had a woman's besetting sin— a passion for admiration. All women have it, and it
is the curse of their sex.
"The prosaic atmosphere of this
tragic end is almost ridiculous. 'God
is a jealous God, and His way are
manifest.' One night a thoughtless
indulgence in wine, the inevitable
other man—the magic of an Eastern
night, and the woman I worshipped
more than my God bartered my love,
and permitted the lips 1 held sacred
to be polluted. I saw her for one
agonising moment in his arms,
"She did not love the man; it ivas
merely the gratification of a physical
desire.   Women cannot realise the de
secration one kiss may do to a man's
trust. The idol I trusted and worshipped was shattered in a moment.
The love I thought nothing in heaven
or earth could altter crumpled to
dust."
The low, tense voice ceased ivith
almost a sob. The young man longed
to extend his hand, but discretion
bade him not.
Sir Antony wiped his brow. In his
voice there ivas a sob as he continued.
"If your love is like mine was, then,
for pity's sake, don't take the woman.
If it is greater or lesser, enough to
forgive a woman's faults, then try,
with God's help, to lind happiness, It
is the great experiment. Life or
death for the heart: against the wisdom of twenty years' study of humanity I bid you try."
Sir Antony rose and held out his
hand.
The young man gripped it, and returned thoughtfully to his rooms.
There he found a note from his beloved.
"I have thought, and thought, Danny," it ran, "and after all I. dare not
go. We should bc miserable without
means, and 1 can't face it. Oh! if
only you had the Brute's money.—
Belle. -

prevent the veteran from "lagging
superfluous on the stage," ancl
will prevent unreasonable delay in
the promotion of those beneath.
The Week does not claim that
the Public Service Act is perfect,
but it does believe* that it is as
ner perfection as a piece of technical, difficult legislation can be.
And now it wants to put in a plea
for something whicli does not involve criticism of the Act but the
rectifying of a wrong outside the
ordinary provisions of the Act,
and produced by conditions of a
general character. It is a matter
of common knowledge, and common admission, that the cost of
living has increased during the last
feAV years from 80 to 50 per cent.
In British Columbia one may safely say 50 per cent. This situation has been met by the hanking
institutions, and indeed all the
big commercial houses in the
Province, hy a specific increase in
salaries. It has been met among
every class of labour by substantial raising of the rates. It has
not been met in the Civil Service
by any substantial increase in
Avhat may be called the "basis of
computation." The sliding scale is
all right, and the advances on promotion are reasonable, but the
bed-rock prices are too low, ancl
the standard ought to be raised.
In. the United States men of the
ability ancl integrity of those employed as heads of Departments
by the British Columbia Government receive as a rule nearly twice
as much as is paid here, Avliile the
rank and file, who after all., feel
the pinch most, are paid at least
50 per cent, more.    The Week
does not argue that Ave should .follow the American precedent; far
from it, but the margin of difference is so great that there is certainly room for a moderate increase, and unless the cost of living can be pulled down very substantially the efficiency of the Service demands that the increase
should be made. In saying this
The Week, is not unmindful of the
advantages of the Civil Service,
regularity of employment, assured promotion and permanency of
occupation are important considerations and they cannot be found
in the same degree in any other
employment, but if these are a
fair offset to one-half the amount
representing the increased cost of
living, there is still a matter of
25 per cent, on the debit side of
the ledger.
seen that apart from losing its i castle ancl his satellite, who think
that for The Week the sun rises
and sets Avith the McBride Administration; but let that pass.
The Government has clone its
share, but the substantial outstanding, effective agency has
been the foresight and the splendid achievements of the C. P. B.
It is impossible to speak too highly of the fleet of vessels Avhich
that Company is iioav operating on
the Pacific Coast. It did not need
the reminiscences of the   popular
distinctive character the Association Avould have become unwieldy
if so broad a basis had heen adopted. It should also be pointed out
that there are some three hundred
schools in England not included, in
Whittaker's list which claim to
be "public schools," so that the
meeting undoubtedly adopted the
only safe basis in limiting the
membership. To overcome the
difficulty created by the fact that

THE OLD BOYS
An Old Boys' Banquet has been
held at The Empress Hotel wliieh
despite "siege rations" passed off
with eclat; one hundred men sat
down representing about fifty public schools of the Old Country.
Not the least gratifying feature of
the occasion was a fair list from
the greatest of them all—Eton and
Harrow. On Monday night an
Old Boys' Association was formed, and an. efficient set of officers
elected, with the veteran ancl universally respected Hon. C. E.
Pooley ns President. The Association includes all schools which'
are represented at the Head-masters' Conference; their number
totalling 11.5. A proposal to include all the schools listed in
Whittaker was almost unanimously vetoed, ancl Avhen it is remembered that the number exceeds
eight hundred, it will readily bo

had been invited to join the Conference but had depeatedly declined—such for instance as Loretto
■—a rider Avas added empowering
tlie Committee at their discretion
to include such schools, and in this
The Week believes that a perfectly fair solution of the problem has
been reached. The objects of the
Association are admirable in the
highest degree; they are confined
to help Old Public School boys
to a position in British Columbia
commensurate ivitli their early associations and training. This is a
legitimate object and one whicii
cannot fail to inure to the benefit
of Old Public School Boys ancl
also to strengthen English, sentiment and English influence in
Western Canada.
ANOTHER PRINCESS
At the last census Victoria had
a population, of 23,000; at the
present lime it generally admitted that the population is 4*0,000
and optimists say 50,000. If
The Week were asked what single factor has contributed most to
this notable increase, it would say
the 0. P. R. Xo doubt this avowal will be received with IioavIs of
derision by the member for Xew- Company who are ever on the alert
Capt. John Irving, to remind the
press-men who gathered on the
Princess Adelaide last Tuesday
night of the advances whicii had
been made in Coast navigation
since he first became associated
with the local service. But, hoAv-
ever, great the advance made, it
ivas gratifying to hear Capt.
Troup declare that the service Avas
not a bit in advance of the requirements. Little do Victorians
know how much they OAve to this
same Capt. Troup, the man Avho
rarely talks, avIio has a genial
smile and a kindly Avord for everyone and avIio devotes almost every
minute of his life to the ardent
pursuit of onerous duties. Time
and again when. Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy visits the Const,
newspaper men intervicAV him and
ask about his plans for the future,
and when another new Princess
will arrive ami so on. Naturally
the Avords of the great magnate
are eagerly devoured, and widely
published, but even, the newspaper
men do not always remember tliat
if the final verdict rests with the
President the initiative is in the
hands of the local officers of the
to improve their service and increase its efficiency. In the Princess Adelaide the C. P. B. has the
best equipped, the most luxurious
ancl the most comfortable boat yet
placed on the Avaters of the Pacific, and it is hardly appreciably
slower than the Princess Charlotte or the Princess Victoria. At
times the C. P. R., like every corporation, lays itself open to criticism on minor details and it is the
privilege of the Press to criticise,
but on broad principles there can
be nothing but praise for the general policy of the Company, and
for the truly magnificent manner
in Avhich they have met the requirements of ocean travel and hotel accommodation on the Pacific
Coast. Incidentally ,the advent
of tho Princess Adelaide furnishes
an opportunity for publicly recognising the sagacity, the perseverance ancl the devotion of the local
heads of Departments, with a special meed of praise for Capt.
Troup.
Poetic Realism
"AVho was lt who wrote that llnei'I

"Blest il I know," said a man who
reads little. "No doubt it was somebody who had been trying to solve the

Concert at  Institute Hall
Mr. J. D. A. Tripp scored another
big   success    on    Wednesday    night
ast at the Institute Hall. This talented performer may justly claim to
bc by far the best exponent of the
pianoforte anywhere Avest of Toronto. He is a master of technique and
the fortunate possessor of a magnetic
personality. To my mind his rendering of Rubenstein's Barcarolle in F.
Minor was the gem of the evening.
Great  praise  is   due  to   Miss   Well-
iled, his advance representative.
Mrs. S. McLurc, Mrs. R. H. Pooley

largely to the success of an evening
whicii Avas thoroughly appreciated

MOMUS.
Composer of "Beauty Spot" Has
Written Many Operas
Reginald DeKoven, composer of
the new musical play, "The Beauty
Spot," coming to the Victoria Theatre, on Monday, January 30, is the
son of an Episcopal clergyman and
was born in Middleton, Conn., April
3, 1859. It is not generally known
that he received his education in
England and is a Bachelor of Arts
of St. John's College, Oxford. His
first composition was "Marjorie
Daw," a song written in his college
days and still popular in Oxford. It
Avas in those days, also, that hc wrote
is first opera, "Cupid, Hymen &
Co.," which never was produced. His
rst opera to see the footlights Avas
"The Begum," produced by the Mc-
Call Opera Company. The success
of this gave him the opportunity to
go abroad for study and it was
when a pupil of Richard Genee in
Vienna that, in 1889 he Avrote "Don
ijuixote," whicli had only slight success.
In 1890, however, he Avrote "Robin
Hood," whicii became famous as the
masterpiece of the Bostonians. Then
followed in rapid succession, "The
Knickerbockers," "The Fencing Master," and "Thc Algerian." Afterward he became known as thc leading composer of the United States
through  his successful  operas,  "The
Jefferson De Angelis in the
"Beauty Spot"
Highwayman," "Rob Roy," and "Thc
Three Dragoons." He also wrote
most of the music for "The Man in
the Moon," and "From Broadway to
Tokio." He then wrote De Wolf
Hopper's  success,  "Happyland,"  and
"The Student King."
His opera, "The Girls from Holland" was seen in the Lyric Theatre,
which, by thc way, DeKoven owns,
November  18th,  1907.
In 1884 DeKoven married Anna
Farwell, daughter of Charles B, Fur-
well, of Chicago, United States Senator from  Illinois.
Silver Threads
Into the gold of the present Victoria theatrical season will come
"Silver Threads" to thc Victoria
Theatre, Tuesday, Jan. 3r, in whicii
Richard J. Jose, thc famous contra
tenor Avill make his re-appearance af
ter several years absence, in Martin
V. Merle's domestic drama of New
England life. Merle is best remembered for "The Light Eternal," whicli
has gone on record as the best of all
religious plays in recent years. In
"Silver Threads" he has fitted Jose
wilh a vehicle that spells success Avith
a capital "S" for it is a play destined
for popularity and a long career.
After the surfeit of new thought,
graft and persecution and problem
plays, "Silver Threads" comes as a
decided relief. Its homeliness, directness and heart-interest all ring
true for it is a simple tals simply
told.
New Grand Theatre
The name of "Hope Booth" recent
star of "The Pawnsman," "The Goddess of Liberty," etc., is so well
known to the American theatregoers
that ail introduction seems in vain,
but when a legitimate star of her high
I .standing takes flight into vaudeville,
it is noteworthy. For her vaudeville
premier, Miss Booth will be seen in
a comedy playlet by George M. Cohan, entitled "The Little Blonde
Lady," whicii concerns an incident in
a newspaper office.
Hardie Langdon Avill present an act
of unusual merit and far away from
the usual soubrette act.
A mixture of patter, songs and piano playing arc combined in the
amusing diversion* which is offered
by Caine & Odom,. the "song tailors". *
A revelation in terpsichorean execution are Raymond & Hall, who will I
offer  a   novel   specialty,  "Pedal   Po- j
etry," which combines a scries of intricate dances. ,
Lovers of physical culture attrib-1
utes and ideal specimens of manhood
will have an opportunity to indulge in
things physical, thc ensuing week, by
appearance at the Grand of "The

equilibristic evolutions. |

So Tired
He was the laziest tramp that ever
waited at the Avater tank for a southbound freight.
"Pardner," he drawled, when a young
man passed that way, "got any tobacco?"
"Guess so," responded the youth,
tumbling in his pocket and pulling
forth a hag of mixture.
"Gut  any  cigarette  papers?"
"A  few."
"Well, make me a cigarette, that's
a good fellow."
With a few dexterous twists the
stranger handed over the "coffin nail."
The tramp yawned.
"Sny, pardner," he said, finally,
"would yer mind puffing dat dope an'
blowing <le smoke In my face? I feel
awfully tired*—too tired  to smoke."
Ont of Order
Champ Clarke loves to tell of how in
the heat of a debate Congressman Johnson of Indiana called an Illinois representative a jackass. 'I'he expression
was unparliamentary and In retraction
Johnson  said:
"While I withdraw the unfortunate
Avord yet, Mr, Speaker, I must insist
that the gentleman from Illinois is out
of order."
"How am I out of order?" yelled the
man   from  Illinois.
"Probably a veterinary surgeon could
tell you," answered Johnson, that was
parliamentary enough to stay on the record. 12
THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1911
TOPICAL   TRIFLES—XIII
(By  Onlooker)
There is nothing more effective
than prohibition to promote desire,
and on the ban being removed from
the performance of Salome in England the opera is the theme of the
day. Salome is "in it" Avithout a
doubt, though the "head" is out of
it. Her frenzied capers around the
empty platter are said to be even
more thrilling than when the out-
Avard and visible sign was present.
When the Censor prohibited the performance of Salome in England he
ensured its future popularity by
piquing the curiosity, and that not
merely of the curious sex, Ave venture to think. It is presumed that
its prohibition Avas due to a too
literal interpretation of the Bible,
but the stage is said to hold the
mirror up to life and our geography
will tell us that it is a warm climate
in that part of the Avorld where the
original Salome danced before King
Herod. Possibly in the far future
Madam Acte Avill make a Canadian
tour in the popular opera.' But in
the meantime, Ave are likely to have
an amateur dramatic club in Victoria.
Mr. Fels gave an interesting address at the Victoria Theatre this
Aveek on a subject that perhaps has
not hitherto attracted much attention
in Victoria Avhere we have already
so many weighty problems, such as
Sooke Lake, Vancouver Street, ancl
to say nothing of the Times and the
Barclay Sound Railway. Mr. Joseph
Fels is an advocate of the Single Tax
doctrine. After three long years of
study he came to the conclusion that
speculation, which meant that somebody got something for nothing, and
somebody else gave something for
nothing, was responsible for much in
tiie unsatisfactory conditions of the
present daj'.
Three minutes is sufficient for most-
people   to   come   to   the   conclusion
that they are willing to take a chance
at getting something for nothing,
provided the odds are satisfactory.
Unless human nature changes, speculation Avill ever be in the field. The
speaker also told us that Avhile a hundred years ago the problem was
wealth creation, today it Avas Avealth
distribution. Personally, the Onlooker is still interested in the creation of wealth, and undoubtedly
looks forward to being able to distribute it. Of course this is not Avhat
Mr. Fels means, and the problem
that he desires to solve is that whereby those who have not will get that
which they create, and to bring this
about he advocates all taxation on
the value of land and the public
ownership of public utilities. Mr.
Fels' policy may turn out to be
quite practical, but in the meantime
let us get all the "easy money" we
can.
The December number of the Nineteenth Century Magazine has an interesting article on the "Married
Working Woman." By "Working
Woman" is meant the wife' of the
laborer, and not the dainty typewriter
or milliner avIio marries in order not
to have to work any more, but finds
that such an idea is the biggest mistake she ever made in her life. The
Avomen referred to by the writer of
the article are the wives of dock
laborers in the south-east district of
London, and seem to be morally and
mentally the superiors of the men of
their class. "Among the poorer
families especially, the mental superiority of the Avife to the husband
is very marked. The ceaseless fight
which these poor women wage in
defence of their homes against all
the forces of the industrial system
develops in them an alertness and
an adaptability to whicii the men,
deadened by laborious and uninspiring toil can lay no claim. The ivives
are, indeed, Avithout the smattering of
newspaper information which their
husbands exchange as political Avis-
dom in the public houses, but they
have   a  fund   of  common   sense,  an
intimate knoAvledge of the Avorkings
of male human nature, and an instinctive righteousness of attitude which
makes them invaluable raw electoral
material."
Such is the opinion of one avIio has
spent much time among, and is familiar Avith the conditions of those Avomen. It seems as if the anti-suffragettes might be wrong in supposing that Avomen are incapable of
judging a man's electoral Avorth
apart from the color of his hair or
the curl of his mustaches.
Cheer up, bachelor girls, hoboes,
orphans, and fatherless, wages are
going up!
If I am right, it appears to me
That topical trifles locallee
Serene and tranquil seem to be,
Although the cost of coal, I see,
Is enough to make one swear, D—d--
And I have heard that Mayor Morlee
Would like a bit more salaree,
"Only a thousand or tAvo," says he,
While     every    alderman     sniggers,
"Oh,  gee!
If  he's  Avorth  one,  then   I'm  worth
three."
But as for me, I'm up a tree:
I sing all day in a mournful key,
"Oh, Avatch the grocer grin Avith glee
As he raises the price of eggs and
tea."
Indeed I fear I'll have to flee
This charming city by the sea, j
Where everyone spells proprietee |
With a most conspicuous capital "P"i
In all the ranks of societee. j
And thirsty men on a hot Sundee j
Can't   drink—except   on   the   strict!
