E PRACTICAL POLITICS
The session of the Provincial Parlia-
|t which is to open on the 12th proximo
uses to be notable both for its brevity
its business, the Governmental proline us already foreshadowed  being
lently characteristic of the Administrate that it is terse, practical and pro-
.-sive.   That the country is prosperous
advancing no.one need be told;  that
is  no  relaxation  of governmental
nice and economy—such as there is
lestionably a temptation in good times
oduce—is indicated in the highly sig-
ant   fact   that   despite   the   uiipre-
ltedly  large   investments  that   have
made    in     reproductive    public
•oughout  the conntrv,   Finance
ster Ellison in his first Budget will
ble to show a surplus well in excess
i,000,000 and money resources at his
land sufficient, were such a course
able, to liquidate the entire indebted-
of the Province.
'he outlined legislation of the new
m is typical of the policy that has
■;ht about this happy condition of af-
and undeniably contributed in no
degree to British Columbia's present
general prosperity. Bailway legis-
, whicii loomed so largely in the last
mil programme, will at the resump-
bf Parliament occupy but a subor-
e place. Prominence is promised in-
for laws increasing the security of
limb and property; laws for the
rvation and protection of the natural
rces of the land; and laws calculated
I'oinote the enlargement of the self-
taining capacity of the Province—
,'isdoni of all of which is beyond ques-
so that the sessional agenda paper
ae Government would seem to lack
oversial matter in its entirety.
ls to the desirability and the pressing
isity of enlarged activity in promot-
he utilization of the land by practical
ultural colonists there can be no dif-
ce of opinions. For national security
the assurance of permanent prosper-
i country must be independent in the
3i- of its foodstuffs supply. To spend
gn, as British Columbia at present
ing, upwards of $12,000,000 annually
igricultural products and by-products
l might well be grown upon its own
ble but untenanted acreage, is fatu-
nd suicidal policy, and the correction
ch conditions is a first duty of Gov-
ent. The country, thoroughly recog-
g this, noted with especial approval
significant utterance of Attorney-
cal Bowser in his Eburne address of
eel-;, as to the determination of the
niiient to rapidly follow up the acti-
of road and railway builders by
jr*s and other facilities for the prompt
zation of new areas as these are thus
accessible for settlers and provided
facilities for placing their products
Provincial markets, in the pro-
revision of the Land Act the Gov-
lt might advantageously go one
urther at the coming session and
e for complete surveys, valuation
nvenient classification of all public
ulaptable for agricultural and kin-
ilization.
The enactment of laws for the conservation and the better utilization of the
forest resource, for the regulation and
control in the public interest of trust and
insurance companies, for the more adequate safeguarding of the coal miner in
his hazardous avocation, and for the protection of the public from the reckless
niotornianiac will all meet with universal
commendation, and upon principle these
features of the governmental programme
cannot but command the undivided endorsement of the House. Various short
line railways to serve particular districts
will doubtless be accommodated with necessary charters, carrying however no
public aid; and generous provision will
doubtless be made in the Estimates for
the necessary extension of public works,
of which the development of the Provincial trunk roads system and the enlargement of the legislative buildings to meet
the pressing requirements of the central
civil service staff for accommodations will
be vital features.
Altogether it is a good sessional programme—a practical, a progressive and a
popular one.
THE BRITISH ELECTIONS
That the Asquith government will be
sustained in the elections now being held
in Great Britain is a certainty. With
two-thirds of the contests decided, the relative standing of the parties is practically
the same as in the last Parliament. The
conclusion is inevitable that the Liberals
and their allies will have a majority of
something over a hundred.
Such a result would seem to indicate
that the fierce radical campaign against
the House of Lords has not been taken
very seriously hy the mass of the electors.
That some change is necessary in the constitution of the British upper chamber
may be conceded, but the proposal of
super-heated radicalism to create five or
six hundred new peers has from the beginning seemed to reasonable men a mere
fatuous absurdity.
Moreover, it is no secret that Home
Rule for Ireland is at the bottom of the
attack on the House of Lords. The
policy of the Liberals has been dictated
by John Redmond and it is not at all
clear that the earnest but not too scrupulous Redmond would be satisfied with the
kind of Home Rule which Avas so plausibly and eloquently outlined to the people
of Victoria by T, P. O'Connor a few
weeks ago. At any rate the "predominant
partner" as Lord Rosebery describes
England, has evidently not got over being
suspicious on this point. Opposition to
Home Rule, combined with fear of a
single chamber government, have apparently been the dominating factors whicli
have induced England to give a considerable Unionist majority, while the coalition has derived its support from the
"shreds and patches" of the United
Kingdom.
Circumstances have driven the question of tariff reform into the background
during the contest. Canadians may regret that this fiscal plank was not made
more prominent but Balfour, the Conservative leader, though he is occasionally
charged with lack of steam, is not sus
pected of being wanting in political sagacity. His promise that tariff reform
would not be adopted Avithout a referendum probably had the effect of saving for
the Unionists many free trade votes while
it could not have alienated the votes of
tariff reformers for the simple reason that
they had no place else to go. Tariff reformers had to take Avhat they could get.
Consequently most of them must have
voted Unionist, though a feAV may haA'e
stayed at home.
It is noticeable that the vote almost
everywhere has been considerably smaller
than in the great contest of less than a
year ago. This does not necessarily
argue any slackening of interest among
the electors. The fight has been made
upon the same register as the last, and in
the nature of things many hundreds of
men haA'e died iu the meantime while
many other hundreds have changed tlieir
residence. These two factors Avould be
quite sufficient to account for the bulk of
the decrease.
What will be fhe next move of the
opposing armies no man can say. A
prophet or the son of a prophet might
hazard a guess but the chances are very
great that he would guess wrong. It
may be taken as certain that nothing
reA'olutionary is going to happen. Lloyd
George and Winston Churchill Avill certainly have to mod if v their demands.
Our oavii Canadian ex-statesman Sir
Richard Cartwright once compared governments to "the scum on the wave" and
the simile might not be altogether inapplicable to the radical leaders in the Old
Country. At any rate, having done their
worst, they must hoav agree to some form
of compromise,-hoAveA'er little the compromise may be to their liking.
THE ITCH FOR MEDDLING
On Wednesday of next week two sections of British Columbia Avill pass upon
Avhat appears to the average man, vieAV-
ing the issue with detached impartiality,
a question of colossal impertinence and
impropriety: Chillhvack and Prince Rupert are asked to declare at the polls
Avhether or not they desire to discard the
principle of the neAV Provincial liquor act
adopted with unanimity by a Parliament
fresh from the people and whicii is being
successfully enforced throughout the country, and substitute the so-called Scott Act
—a failure and a farce Avhorcvcr experimented with and everyAvhere proven incapable of thorough enforcement.
The proposition would seem in logic
capable of being answered in but one avuv.
Hut people are not ahvays logical or consistent, in proof of which is the submission of this Scott Act vote itself. The
essential principle involved is that of
Local Option, whicii wus first invoked by
means of a plebiscite taken last November, Avhen the Provincial electorate recorded a negative decision. Dr. Spencer nnd
his associates, believing themselves more
competent fo dictate the country's policy
than its elected representatives, forthwith
proceeded surreptitiously to seek machinery at Ottawa by whicli they might circumvent the recorded verdict of fhe country. At the same time the Government,
with a broader recognition of duty, respon
sibility and the will of the people, revised the liquor traffic regulation act materially, consulting in this important task
(it is an open secret) a number of the
clearest-minded and best informed true
champions of temperance in all America, •
whose advice as well as that of leaders at
the Provincial bar politically antagonistic
to Conservatism, aviis followed in many
particulars in the framing of the present
hiAv of the land—a law which for Avork-
ability and comprehensive and direct
provision for minimizing the evils admittedly arising from the abuse of liquor, has
probably no peer in any British statute-
book. It goes indeed so far and is so:
drastic in its contents that during its
passage through the Legislature, the teetotaller extremists of the Province contented themselves with sneeringly declaring.
that it aviis never intended to be fairly enforced, and could not or would not be.
Being again contradicted flatly by the
evidence of fact, one should imagine that
they would now lead in approbation of;
the Government for having passed and so
successfully administered this super-
drastic law. instead, hoAA'ever, one finds
them adopting a course utterly inconsistent with their enunciated aims and calculated solely to produce (should it prove
successful) destruction of Provincial uniformity in the control of the liquor traffic,
removal of the facilities for protecting the
weak-Avilled victim of the liquor appetite,
confusion, discord, and violation of Liav.
Truly the itch for meddling is a pestilential and a dangerous malady.
Will some oracle kindly declare Iioav
it is that so many cases occur of death
on the raihvay tracks of which the hcavs-
papers subsequently record: "The deceased Avas very deaf and did nof hear
the approaching train." Do deaf people
ahvays select the raihvay lines as their
favourite promenades.
It aviis quite in order for Dr. Cook
to telegraph his coininisserations to Walter Wellnian. He should have headed
his message: "From One Four-Plusher
to Another."
Another cherished paragraphers' tradition has been shattered in tbe discovery
by burglars who cracked the safe in an
Alberni newspaper office that tliere aviis
money in it!
Cook hoav announces that he isn't quite
sure Ihat he did reach the Pole. Several
others had beaten hiin to that conclusion.
A Scottish inventor is reported in the
"Scientific American" to have perfected
a sled-like machine which, when drawn
over a road, accurately records on ii paper-
covered cylinder all irregularities in the
surface of the thoroughfare. It is a safe
bet that Avere the machine employed on
any one of a dozen Victoria streets, the
cylinder sketch would after ten minutes'
operation closely resemble a profile plan
of the Selkirks.
The Biblical author who writes of
"filthy lucre" must have glimpsed prophetically some of the twentieth century's
much overworked bank notes. THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1910
At The Street
Corner
By TUB LOUNQER
Is there any other city in the world
which will alloAV three car-loads of
gravel to be "dumped" on the main
street at 11 o'clock in thc morning;
the Municipal authorities of Victoria
appear to be Jesuits, for they act as
though "the end justified thc means."
lt is true that Bastion street needs
re-paving more than any other street
in the Capital City of British Columbia. It is equally true that the main
street of the same city does not want
a Avhole lot of gravel "dumped" on
her main street during the busiest
hours of the morning. There is
something Avrong somewhere. I appreciate the fact that the gravel has
to be "dumped" on Government
street in order to repair the detestable condition of Bastion street; but
I contend that this "dumping" ought
to be done in the early morning
hours,  before  the  business men  get
down to work.
* *   *
And talking about "getting down
to work" it is notorious that business
men in Victoria arc lax in this respect; they are better than they used
to be. When I first reached this
beautiful city the business men used
to arrive at their offices any old time
after ten o'clock and leave at half-
past eleven. Their employees would
not see them until three, and their
creditors would be lucky if they saw
them at all. NoAv-a-days things are
slightly better; the businessman is
usually in his office by ten o'clock,
and he does not go to his lunch till
twelve; but, he still stays out till
three. If this is an injust indictment
of the business men of Victoria (bar,
saloon-keepers and hotel-men) I
shall be glad to reeeive a letter from
a representative business man if he
can give me a guarantee that he is
ALWAYS open to business at ten
o'clock in the morning, I will make
an ample apology in these columns.

We have some young hooligans in
Victoria, and I have written about
them. I am pleased to notice that
Vancouver has hooligans of the same
description of rather an older age.
This particular class of personage has
been in evidence in Victoria lately,
and he is not a bit welcome. These
young insects, whom their fathers
ought not to allow out of their own
homes, come over to the Capital City
with ribbons posted all over them to
let people knoAV that they belong to
some impossible club or society. They
seem to think it fun when they come
from Vancouver to Victoria to shout
on the streets such ditties as the following:
"Vancouver lies over thc ocean,
Vancouver lies over the sea;
Vancouver lies over the ocean,
Then bring back Vancouver to mc."
Vancouver may be an excellent
city; it probably is, but it cannot compare with Victoria and I consider it
unmitigated "cheek" for a bunch of
Vancouver lads to come over to Victoria as they did. We don't Avant tc
see these specimens of Vancouverites;
Ave Avould far rather they remained in
the city that bred them. We don't
want "VANCOUVE R" shouted through our streets. We don t
think it is good form, and Ave know
it isn't.

Hoav excellent Victoria looks at
present. Douglas street is, as usual,
up in arms, or should I say, in ruins.
But, Ave don't expest to see Douglas
street in a different state. If I had
to live on that unfortunate street I
should most certainly curse the day
I was born. But my reference is not
to Douglas street; I am referring to
the magnificent 'vista -which is as
present apparent on Government St.
Every time I come into town from
over the Bay I notice how much
more beautiful Victoria is Avithout the
buildings which were burnt. I cannot help thinking that there are many
more buildings in town which Avould
beautify- Victoria by their absence
rather than by their presence. I will
not specify any names, but the sagacious   reader  will  probably   know
to which I refer.

My attention has been called to a
state of affairs existing at the Victoria Post Office which is a disgrace
to the Federal Government. There
are many men who open their mail
in the Post Office building. They
throw the envelopes onto the floor;
they often throw other matter on to
thc same receptacle, especially when
they are bills. Why do not the Federal Authorities provide baskets for
such leavings. I have frequently seen
the janitor stooping doAvn to pick up
bits of paper whicii had stuck to the
floor owing to his previous sprinkling. The average man is considerate and if a notice were put up that
waste paper was to be deposited in a
recognised place he Avould conform
with thc requisition. There are some
men  Avho will not; but  they  are  in
the minority.
* *   *
There is another feature to whicii
I Avould like to call the Postmaster
General's attention if he is lucky
enough to receive a copy of The
Week, and that is the under-staffing
of the Post Office of thc Capital City
of what is recognized to be tbe richest and most prosperous Province in
thc Dominion. The other day I found
in our letter box a card informing
me that there was a parcel to be collected. It Avas ten minutes at least
before I received tbe parcel. It
wasn't the clerk's fault because he had
customers to attend to; but it Avas thc
fault of a Department Avhich is so
chary of providing sufficient men to

do the work which that same Department requires done. I have been
meaning to speak about the same
thing for some little time, but have
refrained, because I thought that the
daily papers would take the matter
up, but they appear to ignore the interests of the public and content
themselves with retailing accounts of
murders, sudden deaths and God's
Providence in the United States. It
is fully time for some paper to take
the matter in hand and it is up to
The Week, and up to the Lounger,
as usual, to deal with a matter Avhich
is daily becoming more and more of
a public nuisance. In writing the
above I wish it to be distinctly understood that I am attributing no blame
to the local Postmaster or his Deputy, but I do without reservation attribute the blame to the Postmaster
General of Canada, and I think there
are a lot of people who will agree
with me.

l_e feature of the Aveek has been

itness   lies  rather  in    her    past

Inances.    This criticism must not

New Grand Theatre
Merritt and Love are in vaudeville
and open at the Grand on Monday,
apparently not so much for the purpose of amusing the public as for the
fun they themselves are getting out
of it. One Avould go far to find two
more original or spontaneous fun-
makers. They both boast excellent
singing voices which they put to good
use in topical songs and their patter
is of the sort that puts them at once
on an excellent understanding with
their audience. The turn is unrivalled in vaudeville.
For the lovers of true music the
American Trumpeters Trio offers a
rare treat. The trio includes Misses
Grace and Lillian Tourje and Mr.
Dan Tourje, father and two daughters. All of them are accomplished
and highly cultivated musicians and
their vaudeville offering is counted
one of the most attractive and in all
ways satisfying in the business.
The Stubblefield Trio, which includes George Stubblefield and the
two strikingly beautiful Stubblefield
Girls, is counted one of the more
notable exhibits of feminine acrobatics. All of the time the three are
on the stage, it is a series of clear-
cut aerial pictures, or better, one aerial moving picture, highly colored and
always attractive. Their feats in
equilibrism are fairly startling and
they have found feAV who can equal
their work on the trapeze.
Lucy Tonge's sole contribution to
vaudeville is a combination of voice
and personality, and it is enough to
qualify her as one of the better class
of singing contributions in the business. Miss Tonge is gifted with a
baritone voice of surpassing melody
and tenderness. It seems a bit incongruous at first, that a pretty girl
should suddenly develop a voice that
ordinarily should belong to a man,
but it is not long before she is busy
ansAvering demands for ensore numbers.
The Grand next week will have other attractions from the best offering
in vaudeville and moving pictures of
latest importation.
The Chocolate Soldier

reached an enviable mark as a producer of true comic opera, is announced for the Victoria Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 1911.
The season-round stay of the work
in New York and thc wonderful success in Chicago, have sent out widening ripples of melody, ancl the theatregoers are led to expect much from
them on this new Avork of Oscar
Straus as accompanist to the brilliantly witty George Bernard Shaw
book "Arms and the Man." Manager
Whitney promises thc largest theatrical company of the year in opera
with the addition of the Whitney Opera Comique orchestra of forty players so Avell remembered for the effectiveness given by it to the production
of "Thc Fencing Master," "Brian Be-
ru," "Love's Lottery," in which Mme.
Schumann-Heink appeared, and others of thc Whitney musical feasts.

Maxine Elliott
Miss Maxine Elliott comes to the
Victoria Theatre on Thursday, Jan.
5th, 1911, in her jolly sea-breezy comedy, "The Inferior Sex," in which she
played a long and successful engagement at Daly's Theatre in New York
last winter and spring, playing a return engagement at her own theatre
this autumn. The comedy was written for Miss Elliott by Frank Stay-
ton, an English Avriter who has gained considerable prominence on the
other side. There is a nautical atmosphere about "Thc Inferior Sex"
and a delightful flavor of salt air and
flowing tide Avhich makes it an admirable vehicle for Miss Elliott, who
is an enthusiastic yachtswoman. Thc
play tells thc story of a woman-hater
who has put to sea in his private
yacht in order that he may write
books about woman-hating, and at
the time be free from the intrusion
of any member of what he is pleased
to term "thc inferior sex." His plans
are frustrated upon the arrival on
board his ship of a beautiful and unknown lady, who has been rescued
from an open dory by his crew.
There is nothing to do but to make
her as comfortable as possible, and
she calmly usurps his comfortable
cabin, messes up his writing desk,
makes fun of his literary labors, incites his creAV to mutiny and ends by
making him fall head over heels in

OUR BOYS
BY BOHEMIAN
The Victoria Daily Times is pleased to take offence at my remarks
which appeared in the last issue of
The Week regarding the editorial
which was written in The Victoria
Daily Times on November the 24th.
I have not the slightest objection to
being styled "a surly yellow dog."
I don't much mind being styled "a
tolerated nuisance," but I do object
to the statement of The Times that
the boys in British Columbia in general, and in Victoria in particular are
angelic in character. They are not.
The Times says "in confirmation of
our position we may say that we have
been congratulated by a number of
people on expressing the views we
expressed. I,on my part say that 1
have been congratulated by many men
of the Avorld and by some up high in
the Clergy list for saying what I did.
I am not going to enter into an argument with the editor of The Victoria Daily Times; I will content myself with saying that any sane man
avIio uses his powers of observation
must realize thc fact that vice is more
prevalent than virtue in the minds of
the Canadian youth. As for the "retort discourteous" I Avill not make it.
NAPLES
Probably many of my readers have
visited Naples, the most fascinating
city on the Mediterranean coast. It
is, Avithout a doubt, one of the most
delightful cities I have ever visited.
Both its lilthiness and its beauty appeal to the stranger. The former is
so grotesque as to be ludicrous. The
little narrow streets which remind one
of the Yarmouth, are picturesque but
dirty. It is no uncommon thing to
see naked children wandering up these
alley-Avays.
At the same time it must be admitted that Naples is a beautiful city;
her harbour is only to be rivalled by
that of Rio de Janiero and of Sydney.
I shall never forget the delight which
I experienced when I sailed into
Naples Harbour one autumn morning
some nine years ago.
But the real beauty of Naples lies
in its out-lying districts. One has to
go a long way to better the drive
from Naples to Baiae, On the Avay
one passes a famous lake, the Lucerne
Lake, with a kind of grotto leading
through underground passages, Avhere
it is said that Nero used to meet the
Sybil. The lake is also famous for
its oysters.
But there is a place that appealed
particularly to me and I think that
few tourists avail themselves of the
opportunity to see it. I refer to the
Monastery of San Martino, which is
perched on the top of the hill from
which the photograph is taken which
is so familiar to most people. The
monks were compelled to vacate their
monastic Avork and they now make
their living out of making the famous
Chartreuse liqueur and Asinette. But
the buildings arc still there and the
Chapel is one of thc finest I have ever
seen. 1 remember the emotions it
stirred in me when it Avas dead and
empty; I can hardly conceive of thc
emotions it Avould stir if it Avere full

Within easy reach of Naples is j
Pompeii, a city rtiost interesting both I
to all readers of Roman history and
to all readers of Buhver Lytton's
"Last Days of Pompeii." It is amusing to go around with a guide and
hear him say "This is the place mentioned in Bulwer's novel."
Next door to Naples is the Island \
of Capri which is intimately associat-1
ed  with  the  name  of  the   Emperor!
Tiberius  and with    the    late    Herr ■
Krupp.    It is a beautiful island and'
contains a famous grotto, called "The
Blue Grotto." Here one gets the real
Mediterranean  "blue."    A  boy dives
from the boat into the Avaters of the j
grotto and appears like a shining fish.'
Sorrento is only just across the bay'
and this is where the late Mr. Marion,
Crawford had his residence. Doubtless
many of my readers have read some •
of his charming works.      I    was in!
Sorrento during Carnival time.   I had!
just come from    Morocco    and was j
wearing an old flannel suit which a
mule  had  patiently  borne  for  three
days.    My    friend    was    in    similar
plight,  so we went to the manager
of the Hotel Sorrento and asked him
if he Avould admit us in our somewhat
ragged   condition.    He   said;   "Yes,[
gentlemen, you are English, and you
English people can do Avhat you like."
I shall never forget that first dinner
on  the  balcony  of  the  hotel;  there
were   about   three   divorced   Russian
Princesses  glittering with  diamonds,
several Italian Diplomats and one or
two Avell  known personages in high
European  circles.    My friend and  I
were assigned a table, as luck would
have  it,  at  the  extreme  end  of the
balcony,   and   two  very  disreputable
persons marched down in front of the
diamonds  trying to  look as  though
they Avere Lords and Marquises. They
apparently  succeeded  for the  waiter
was most attentive.
Not far from Sorrento lies the Monastery styled Deserto. The approach
to this place lies up an avenue which
is bordered Avith "Thc Stations of the
Cross." Thc whole place is typical
of a monastery as pictured in the
modern novel. T remember well that
thc monks gave us a most hospitable
welcome; they showed us over the
building; they entertained to a glass
of their own particular cordial, and
they sent us away feeling convinced
that Charles Kingsley's strictures on
Roman Catholics Avere somewhat undeserved.
I can only say that if any of my
readers are preparing for a tour of
Europe, they should by no means lose
the chance of taking a trip doAvn the
Mediterranean and seeing Naples and
her surroundings. This is thc kindly
advice given by

"Well, John, hoo did ye enjoy yersel'?" asked a Vancouver citizen of a fellow Scotchman, just come out to
B. C. "Fine, mon, but I lost ma luggage." "Hoot mon,
how did ye do that noo?"   "Oh, the cork cam' oot."
FeAV men from the "Land o' Cakes" cross the
Atlantic Avithout some good Avhisky. They well know
the value of it in case of illness. Their choice frequently falls upon Johnnie Walker's "Kilmarnock," for
this excellent "Scotch" has an enormous sale at home
as abroad.
Have you tried Kilmarnock Extra Special, the fine
twelve-year-old Whisky in the square bottle? If not,
you should order this for your next delivery at home.
You'll appreciate it if you are a connoisseur of good
Scotch.
Johnnie Walker's is always to be found at hotels,
cafes and clubs throughout B. C. Your dealer can
supply your home demand.

The Peace River Country
Fred G. Lawrence, F.R.G.S., for 30
years a resident of the Peace River
district, aroused keen attention in an
address before thc Toronto Canadian
Club on the possibilities of thc West.
He said along the banks of all
streams flowing cast or west from thc
boundary to thc Arctic Ocean gold
was to hc found. Along thc foot of
thc Rockies and the streams af Ath-
a basca outcropping coal in seams nf
6 inches to 28 feet was found. Petroleum was found in such quantities
that Canadians need not go to Texas
to be soaked in oil. There was bitumen in large quantities, estimated at
6,*)oo,ooo,ooo tons by government experts, found capable of supplying all
the asphalt used, thc consumption
hitherto being only 200,000.000 tons
altogether.    Thc largest gas well in
the world was fount not far from
Pelican Rapids on the Athabasca
River, near the asphalt deposits. On
the Mackenzie River, down to the
Arctic, spruce frow two feet in diameter. He hoped Americans would bc
allowed to buy this timber on condition that they Came over and manufactured it here. There were 65,000,-
000 acres of first-class agricultural
land. He expected the West would
eventually ship four, five and six
hundred million bushels of wheat.

Indian Chief Will Be at King's Coronation.
"All the great men in thc world
will bc at King George's coronation,
and I hope to be there, too." Such
was thc announcement by Chief Matthias, son of the famous Indian Chief
Joe of Capilano. Many schemes are
maturing in the head of the representative of the Capilano Squamish tribe,
but this desire to go to London
eclipses all. Thc tomb of his father
is now completed, and Chief Joe lies
in his mausoleum, erected by his son
and the Indians of British Columbia.
The interior work is completed, but
Matthias has decided that thc tomb
will remain closed till March, when
there will be a great gathering of the
tribes of thc whole Province. The
mayor of North Vancouver will perform the opening ceremony. The
Chief expects that thc mayor will
make a speech on the occasion and hc
himself will also address words of
wisdom to his dusky followers, counselling them to follow the white men
in their zeal for learning and to talk
with no guile. Then he will remind
them that his falhcr went to London
and shook hands with the late King,
and hc will put it to them that he
should also go to thc great white
chief. King George, and tell him how
on his father's tomb arc the stone effigies of thc great King Edward and
the great Indian Chief clasped together in peace and goodwill. Hc
will also  tell thc King of his  (Mat
thias') great desire to live at peace
with the whites, although the latter,
he claims, took possession of land
belonging to the Indians. To accomplish the journey to London entails
expense, but the Indians will easily
meet this, says Chief Matthias. Lately
the Chief has been addressing the Indian boys, and advising them to educate themselves. He also intends to
form a section of boy scouts in his
reserve, with himself as scoutmaster,
and he proposes to wear his scout's
uniform when hc pays his expected
visit  to  King George.
NOVEMBER ROD AND GUN
While big game hunting supplies
the dominant note in thc November
number of Rod and Gun in Canada,
there is in the same issue plenty of
material for sportsmen who arc not
able, for various reasons, to go after
moose, deer or bear. In thc opening
article Bonnycastle Dale tells how Indian boys make clever hunters, trappers and fishermen, and with what
skill they decimate thc inhabitants of
the forest. Exploration in the Nepi-
gon country, fishing and mountaineering topics, with many other papers
nnd some line verses, fill a number
which should find ils way into all
hunting camps. Sportsmen, wherever
they may bc found, can enjoy some
pleasant half hours by dipping into
its contents, assured that from beginning tn end they will find much to
attract and interest them. Thc completeness of thc issue in covering thc
whole wide field of Canadian sport
gives it distinction and goes far to
acocunt for thc standing thc magazine has won and continues to deserve. THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1910
A Sensible Christmas
Suggestion
Now-a-days practical presents are taking the place of "fripperies." This
speaks well for "the march of intellect." Indeed, the best reminder is one that
enters into life's realities and sweetens the cares and troubles of each passing
day. We do not know of a more pleasing gift for a man to give his wife than
A GAS RANGE OR A GAS RADIATOR
A Gas Range Avill do anything that a coal range will do
ancl do it better because the heat can be regulated to a
nicety. No more backaches from lifting heavy coal
scuttles, no carrying of ashes, no washing of sooty pots
and pans. Agood Gas Range will make you laugh at
the high price of coal. After you have used it for a
short time you will wonder Avhy you did without it
so long.
A Gas Radiator can be lighted in a second—just a
match-scratch and a turn of the tap and the whole
room is well heated in a feAV minutes without the
bother of chopping "kindling" ancl building a fire. It
will not only give pleasant warmth without
trouble, but it decorates and beautifies a home. In
case of sudden sickness or night emergencies you Avill
find a Gas Radiator invaluable.

A STARTLING STATEMENT
It has been said by those who have
investigated the matter carefully
that, although at the age of 45 fully
80 per cent, of men are established
in whatever pursuit they follow and
are in receipt of incomes in excess of
their expenditure, at the age of 60 it
has been found that 95 per cent, are
dependent upon their daily earnings
or upon their children for support.
Many, no doubt, read the despatch
from Detroit which recently appeared
in the Canadian papers, and which
described thc condition of a man avIio
but a little more than forty years ago
was a "financial power" in that city,
Avho had a "palatial home" on one of
the most fashionable thoroughfares,
entertained lavishly, and to whom
every person, high and low, was prepared to pay homage. But the fates
wcre against him. He suffered serious financial losses, and when he began to go doAvn hill he found it was
properly greased for the occasion.
His friends deserted him like rats
from a sinking ship, and now at 80
years of age, after his day's labour,
he wends his way to the city with the
bent, broken doAvn old men Avho have
influence enough to have their names
on the city's pay roll.
The moral is that out of your
abundance something should be laid
aside for declining years, and invested where thieves cannot reach it,
and Avhere on cannot be deprived of
it in any possible way. This means
is afforded you tinder the Canadian
Government Annuities Act, which the
Parliament of Canada passed in the
Session 1908, and which received the
unanimous support of both sides of
the house.
You may get all information by applying at the Post Office, or by addressing the Superintendent of Annuities, OttaAva.

Edition of

VICTORIA--THE CAPITAL CITY
The development and growth of VICTORIA during the past few years has been phenomenal and she stands today among the
great cities of Canada. The business situation has made such rapid strides that all previous reviews of the RESOURCES, INDUSTRIES AND PROGRESS of VICTORIA and vicinity have been outstripped. The time, we believe, is opportune and should be
taken advantage of, to secure the benefits that will accrue from widespread publication of these facts. With this object in view, "THE
WEEK" will, on Saturday, 17th December, produce a Christmas edition worthy of the Capital of British Columbia, showing the
progress and present status of Victoria and Vancouver Island.   It will present concisely,  the remarkable recent developments in
Finance, Mining and Timber, Building Construction, Railway
Building, Professional and Other Interests, Real Estate,
Manufacturing,    Shipping,   Wholesale   and   Retail   Trading.
It will be a ready reference for people seeking investments, the establishing of business interests, or homes for themselves,
among the opportunities it describes.
The edition will in every way reflect the ENTERPRISE, PROSPERITY and OPTIMISM of the present VICTORIA and
vicinity.   It will be clear and concise in style, and the most interest

A COMIC INCIDENT
A funny thing happened thc other
day. I am not at liberty to name
cither names or places, but I can say
that it happened in the neighborhood
of the vicinity of Victoria. A man
Avell knoAvn round tOAvn Avent out to
stay for a Aveek end with a man even
better known. In the course of the
evening he Avas asked to get some
water from the well; he went with a
friend avIio was staying at the same
house. Instead of going to the well
he went to the lake and promptly fell
in.    "For heaven's sake,    don't    tell
H that I havc gone into his well,
my boots are muddy ancl he'll think
that I havc poisoned the water.
Where is the rope anyway?" The man
eventually got out of the lake and
the Avell did not suffer but thc story
is a joke round town and there is no
reason Avhy our Provincial readers
should not enjoy it.
RECRUITING FOR NAVY
BASTION STREET
Ry thc grace of thc Divine Powers
and the enterprise of the Worswick
Paving Co., Bastion is at length be-
in-,' lixed up. It is high time that
this street Avhich, though not a commercial one. is most essentially the
most professional street in the Capital City of British Columbia, should
bc made a highway Avhere thc people can walk without tumbling into
pit-falls or climbing over precipices.
If Mr. Angus Smith never docs anything else in his life hc can ahvays
remember that he has a "Lounger's"

which the same said "Lounger" has

thc following paragraph: "Recruiting
for Navy!" The Week appreciates
thc fact that cigarette smoking by
both young and grown men is disastrous to the health of thc former and
a quick path to the grave for the latter. The writer is a cigarette smoker
and therefore knows something of
what hc is talking about. He does
not attempt to defend the habit of
cigarette smoking, of smoking at all
or of any other vice which is common to human nature. But men are
men, just as Avomen are women, and
we have our little weaknesses which
Ave find as impossible to discard as
ladies equally find it impossible to discard buying expensive  hats.
"RECRUITING   FOR   NAVY."
(Special to thc Times).
OttaAva, Dec. 6.—Officers enlisting
for thc navy may find large numbers
of volunteers on both coasts. Seventy-five per cent, of those have been
rejected because of cigarette heart or
"moving picture eye."
the Asqttith-Lloyd-George Government will ever advance thc interests
of the country in the furtherance of
any of these policies. The question
of thc veto may be safely left to thc
House of Lords themselves. The
amendment moved by the Marquis of
Lansdowne should prove agreeable to
all Tories and to all sane Whigs.
That it will prove equally agreeable
to red-tied Socialists and blatant Labourites is a matter of some doubt.
However, there can be little uncertainty that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has alienated the affections
of many Liberal adherents by his
drastic bill Avhich has caused many
large land-owners to sell their property in order to make a living.

TROPICAL TRIFLES VI.
(By Onlooker).
I have just had a most amusing time
reading an article in a daily paper
eulogizing thc young idea of Canada.
After reading the article I took Dr.
Johnson's Bijou Dictionary in order
to look up the adjective "bumptious."
I could not find it. I immediately
telephoned to my good friend Socrates and received the information
that thc casual observation of an ordinary specimen of Canadian youth
would give me a better idea of thc
meaning of thc word than any die-
did." I will retort by saying that I
needed a more explanatory explanation.
The article seemed to fascinate me,
for i returned to it again. I found the
young male of Canada praised for his
beauty, ;it which I marvelled greatly
as visions of thc cigarette-ash-com-
plcxioncd young man one so frequently meets, obscured the menial
picture of Greek gods which one
would expect the said article to conjure before one's mind.
I also found the manners of Young
Canada praised to thc heights, but as
I have just been talking to a lady
who has vieAvs on the subject, and
for fears I should repeat what she
thinks  about it,  I  will   refrain  from
.making original comments of my
own, especially as the Bohemian gave
it to Young Canada pretty strong a
short time ago. I cannot refrain,
however, from telling a true story.
1 live in an apartment house. I
was in my bedroom when the Chinaman came to sweep the other room.
1 was amazed to hear a fourteen-
year-old-boy-like voice say:
"That's a funny looking old chair
in this room, Jim. What sort of an
old blighter lives here?"
I immediately emerged from my
seclusion, and found a nondescript
sort of child who had folloAved Jim
into my rooms, and was now engaged in examining the contents thereof.
"Get out! Quick!" said I.
"Get out yourself," said he.
Does anybody Avant to hear any
more? I consulted my friend on the
matter, and he told me that Avhen he
was young, boys were boys and men
were men, but that now-a-days, boys
are men and old men are old fools.
On education there is ahvays much
to be said. The Avriter in this extraordinary article to which I referred
thanks God that Canadian boys are
not as other boys. My mind goes
back to a chapter of a Book where
certain objectionable people express
similar sentiments to  the Deity.
The writer tells us that should
these boys ill confidence tell us all
they know wc would be surprised.
My poor father got surprised in that
way a few years ago with the result
that hc moved his entire family into
the depths of the country, believing
they wcre too young for the surprises
they might run into in their present
surroundings.
But believe me, the superb education or ignorance, whichever facts
prove it to be, are not confined to the
much criticised youth of this country.
Lately, Ave all had thc opportunity of
seeing and hearing one of the finest
exponents of Shakespeare that the
world has ever knoAvn.
"Bet you she plays Faust, Shak
peare wrote Faust," remarked one
the highly educated products of t
part of the Avorld.
"Like  fun  hc did!"  exclaimed
educated one's    companion.    "Milt
wrote Faust."
f went to the theatre that nigl
"Farewell my Lord, farewell," sigh
the noble lady to her departing lov
"O cut it out! Why doesn't she s
'So long, old chap,' and get done wi
it."
That is what one of the audien
thought about it.
Original Poetry
"Okanagan Lake in Storm"
Deep, dark, o'crwhelming is thy su
den Avave,
Taking rich toll of whom thy wate
brave.
Storm beaten, in thy fury's whit
lipped rage
Can nought but    human   life   tl
wrath assuage?
Thy  thousand  feet   of  liquid  dept
defy
All search for those avIio on thy boi
om die.
Now in thy dark cavernous dept
they  rest
By storm or toil or care no mo
oppressed.
There shall they bide secure that la:
dread call
That brings judgment—dead and li
ing—all.
When  in  thy  peace—sun-kissed,  s1
rene and still,
Reflecting   fleecy-flying   clouds   a
pine-clad hill,
Or all thy miles of sunny orch.i
slope-
Then dost thou mirror all we lc
and hope—
Peace,   happiness   and   beauty—av1]
would dream
That  o'er such  peace    such    inst;
rage should stream.
R.   H.  PARKINSON,  in  Ketov
Review.
