THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1907
Industrial
Outlook.
To the uninitiated the industrial outlook in British
Columbia   at   the   present
moment   would   naturally
appear to be most serious.    In the short
space of a month general activity  has
given place to general cessation.    Practically all tlie copper mines and all the
smelters except Tyee have closed down.
The same remark applies to the lumber
mills and logging camps, and although it
is not unusual for the latter to cease operations at this time of the year, it is a
different matter with the former, and there
can be no doubt that the general character
of the movement indicates concerted action on the part of the owners.    The reason alleged is the heavy drop in the price
of copper which has fallen from 25c to
I13e a pound.   That this, however, is not
a full explanation may be deduced from
jthe fact that the copper mines and smelters
continued to operate for quite a long period
kvhen copper stood at from 10c to lie per
ound, and for a short period when it even
dropped to 8c.    The heavy stocks of coper may have had something to do with
ombincd action;  if so, that is a feature
f the case which will soon be eliminated,
as the demand for copper is world-wide
lind will of necessity continue to increase.
f there is a glut, it can only be temporary.
|rhe third factor is probably the potent
ne, viz., concerted action for tho purpose
_ enforcing a reduction in wages.    It is
ell  known  that  the  last increase was
rung from the operators with great dif-
culty, and as the result of extreme pres-
|ure.    At that time the price of copper
as high, and rising almost daily, and in
pite of a strong division of opinion, as
i) the wisdom of the step among the lead-
lg producers, the advance was conceded,
onditions today are entirely different and
rey have changed with panoramic swift-
less.   The situation is accentuated by the
|mdition of the money market, which
this continent, and especially in the
nited States, is in almost unprecedented
troes of stringency and sensitiveness.  At
ie moment tlie banks and other financial
listitutions to the South are unable to
ance any project, however promising,
hey cannot even pay their depositors.  In
battle payment in gold is a thing of the
ast, and depositors with thousands of
pilars to their credit are unable to draw
ren a hundred.   All over the States in-
istrial works are being closed, and manu-
ctories of every kind are restricting pro-
lction and discharging workmen.     The
ndition is general, and not peculiar to
Ity industry.    In Canada things have not
ached that pass, nor can they possibly
|> so.   Our banking institutions are stable,
n natural resources so bountiful that the
>rst that could happen is a lack of capital
keep pace with our enormous expan-
,>n.    There is no feeling of insecurity,
|ere is no loss of confidence, tliere is no
nie.   Tlie lack of available cash is only
nporary because investment in Canada
so certain to yield a profitable return
•jjy money will naturally find its way
re, and all the more certainly because
use is being restricted elsewhere.    At
h present time England is enjoying a
Iriod of commercial and industrial pros-
Irity unsurpassed at any time in her
|rtory.   Every iron smelter, mine, and
•tory in the country is running full time,
EDITORIAL
the output is the greatest on record, prices
are advancing every week, and in not a
few instances order books have been closed,
and this while panic and general restriction aro the features of American business. Canadian institutions are based
upon those of the Mother Country. They
possess a measure of the same stability,
and our currency laws in particular are
built upon the same foundation. These
reasons, added to those already mentioned,
justify the conclusion that no period of
depression in the States, however acute,
can seriously affect the Dominion. This
fact, however, does not minimise the importance of a due regard to the observance
of economic laws. The success of England has been achieved by obedience to
those laws and great as are the natural
resources of Canada, they will not save us
from temporary loss if the principles
which regulate successful business are disregarded. It goes without saying that if
it was right to advance wages because
the commodity produced was soaring upward in price, it is equally right to reduce
them when the selling price has fallen
sensibly. It should be possible to effect
this without any dislocation of business.
In certain industries such as coal mining,
there can be no question that the most
satisfactory method of regulating wages is
by a sliding scale. This plan, instituted
thirty years ago by Sir Rupert Kettle
in England, has solved all the difficulties
connected with the scale of pay, and it
will be a happy day for Canada when it
is introduced here. An automatic scale
with a three monthly adjustment giving
workmen a percentage of the increased
selling price, or reducing them in like
proportion, is an ideal system. Lord
Rosebery in 1894 added the finishing
touch to this when in his great award
lie conceded the principle of a "living
wage" beneath which wages could never
fall whatever the selling price. AVhether
this system, which is in effect a profit
sharing system, comes into use or not here,
it is certain that the principle upon which
it is based must be the one to regulate
wages in certain industries. The cry of
the Socialist that Capital is an enemy
Avhich should be destroyed is madness; the
labouring man would be far surer of his
fair share of the profits of industry
under such a profit sharing scheme as is
furnished by a sliding scale of wages. In
the absence of this automatic arrangement, there must of necessity be arbitrary
adjustments, and there is no reason why
they should not be voluntary. Thc present time is undoubtedly one when the
relief will have to be sought by the copper
mines and smelters. Conditions justify
it. If tlie leaders of organized labour are
wise they will not wait until the employers formulate tlieir claim, but will
meet the requirements of the situation by
a fair offer. By so doing they will secure
the support of public opinion in a proper
adjustment, and will show that the charge
of tyranny and autocratic methods laid at
tlieir door is groundless. Perhaps in a*
truer sense than is yet realized, unionism
is on its trial. It will make a great deal
of difference to organized labour how it
behaves in the crisis, and unless The Week
fails to read the signs of the times aright,
whatever else results, there will follow
the emancipation of Canadian labour
unions from the thraldom of American
control.
The Week has been expect-
A Fair ing to read in the daily
Spirit. press some comment upon
the admirable spirit displayed by the B. C. Electric Railway in
their annual distribution of bonuses. Although the news item appeared in the
Victoria and Vancouver papers, it passed
without remark, and yet nothing has been
chronicled by any of those papers which
has a more important bearing upon the
industrial life of the Province. Here is
a company distributing no less than $30,-
000 among its employees, yielding $60 to
each person. The distribution is purely
voluntary; it forms no part of the remuneration agreed upon between the company
and its employees; it is not a substitute
for wages. Indeed the B. C. E. R. pay
thc highest rate of wages known, and in
the spring of this year granted an increase
of 414c an hour, which would mean in
round figures an addition of ten to fifteen
dollars a month for each man. Too much
credit cannot be given to a company which
is wise enough to recognize that there
are moral as well as legal obligations even
in industrial concerns. The best servant
is he who is best satisfied with his pay and
the conditions of his employment. Twenty-five years ago Sir Alfred Hickman, one
of the wealthiest iron masters in England,
gave practical effect to this proposition by
voluntarily setting aside ten per cent of
his profits for distribution among his
workmen. From that day to this he has
never had a strike. The spirit which
prompted this act of fairness has regulated
all his dealings with his workmen, and
both he and they have benefitted accordingly. The B. C. E. R. is following a good
example, and the directors and the local
management may fairly be congratulated
on the step, which is as prudent as it is
A Lucid
Interval.
It is not often easy to see
what the Colonist is driving
at, and in its editorial
treatment of tlie Labour
Question, it has been even more vague than
usual, but in a recent issue it had a lucid
interval and said some things that were
well worth saying, and that cannot bo too
strongly emphasized. The suggestion may
have been inspired by a letter of Mr. W.
G. Dennis which was under discussion,
still the Colonist should have the credit
of calling attention to the fact that a
crying evil of the present labour situation
is the unwillingness of men seeking work
to leave the town and to go into the country. There is no doubt that this is a very
real difficulty, but as the Colonist points
out, it is not confined to Canada, nor indeed to any country; it is a universal
development of modern civilization. In
England it originated in the attraction of
the higher wages paid in the cities. Within
the last twenty-five years fourteen shillings a week and a cottage, was the ruling
rate of remuneration for peasant labour.
Within tlie same period, section men and
navvies only earned eighteen shillings a
week. Such conditions have never prevailed in Canada and there is work today
iu tlie interior and up country for thousands of white men at fifty, sixty and even
seventy dollars a month and board. The
conditions may bo uncongenial, and the
deprivations obvious, but it is certain that
labour cannot complain at the rate of re-

numeration, nor can it reasonably object
when Asiatics are employed in consequence
of the refusal of the white man to leave
town.
The outcome of the recent
A Nucleus meeting of the Navy League
Navy. in Victoria was a proposal
by Admiral Fleet which has
met with general favour and which is at
least worthy of the serious consideration
of the Imperial and Dominion Governments. Its provisions have been set forth
in the press. The chief point is that the
suggestion is a practical one, and points
out a way in which Canada could make a
substantial contribution to Imperial defence without running counter to Canadian
sentiment, which is clearly opposed to a
money payment. The British Government
could well afford to hand over two-third
rate cruisers and to man them with reservists. Canada could on the other hand
well afford to pay the upkeep and to relieve
the Home Government of police duty in
the Pacific. This would bo a substantial
"Quid pro quo," honorable alike to both
countries, and The Week would hear with
great satisfaction that Admiral Fleet's
proposal had brought the subject definitely
within the range of practical politics.
A correspondent from Na-
A Wider naimo has been complaining
Outlook. to the daily press that Vic
toria is selfish, and contents
herself with advertising the city whicli is
such au attraction to visitors, at the same
time ignoring other parts of the island.
There is some truth in the allegation although the policy is one which few Canadian cities do not follow. Victoria might
report that it is the business of each city
or district to advertise itself, and to pay
for its own advertising. This is a self-
evident proposition, but The Week has
more than once contended that as a mere
matter of business it would pay Victoria
to advertise the island. It is the Capital;
its main asset is its climate, and natural
beauty. It can never become a great
manufacturing centre, although there is
room for considerable expansion along
those lines. The future of Victoria depends upon the development of Vancouver
Island as a whole. As tlio Interior is
opened up, settled and developed, tlie importance of Victoria will become moro
apparent and it will grow in population
and wealth as the result. For this reason
The Week has always been in favour of
the Victoria Tourist Association extending its sphere of usefulness to lake in the
whole island. And there could be no
better time for doing it than when the
new executive and secretary arc elected.
The Milk
Question.
Something is stirring up
the Victoria sanitary authorities to a sense of responsibility in connection with
the Milk Question. It may be that they
were stimulated a little by the exposures of
Thc Week last fall, but their dilatoriness
hardly justifies such a conclusion, and it
would probably be more correct to assume
that the Colonist has taken the matter
under its purview. In any event the recent publication of milk tests and analysis
indicates more activity; unfortunately it
also demonstrates an astounding variation
in the quality of the milk ranging from
three to five of efficiency. This cannot be
regarded as satisfactory, a variation of
sixty-six per cent, being altogether unreasonable and indefensible. Why cannot
the city authorities insist on greater
uniformity? THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1907.
Correspondence.
"What Another Woman Thinks About
Victoria's Exclusiveness, Etc."
Editor The Week:
Sir,—I have read with great interest
your article of Nov. pth, entitled "A
Bit of England on the Pacific," and
it is with no little diffidence that I
approach a subject of which I have
so scant a knowledge—"The stranger
within the gate."
Social life has never appealed to
me, possibly because my time has
been given to more absorbing occupations. Some time ago I attended
a luncheon party given by the wife
of a prosperous gentleman who has
always occupied a seat in the inner
circle. The guests were prettily
gowned, the table decorations faultless and the menu all that could
be desired, but the occasion was simply depressing. It appeared to me
that those present looked as if they
were ruminating upon the futility of
life, and longed with all the fertile
but waste spaces of their minds for
some keen and unusual interest. The
hostess was kind but not cordial. One
of the guests had lately clambered
the rail of society; her husband was
in politics, and some day might be
a tremendous power in the land.
Previous to this they had not been
received or kindly treated by the
powers that be, and the question
mark, even now was plainly visible
in manner and eyebrow of the assembled company.
To me, this little prejudice of old-
fashioned exclusiveness seemed awfully funny, coming as it did from
persons entirely unknown except
through     the     newspaper     society
columns.    Mrs. , unostentatious
but level headed, confessed that it
was the most stupid time she had
ever spent. Our hostess who was
not an aristocrat, but who does very
well superficially, confided to several
present afterwards that  Mrs. 	
was not exactly one of themselves,
but she had to consider her husband's position, as Mr. M.P. was rich
and in politics, and might count some
day.
My belief is, that the social columns
of our newspapers are largely responsible for this state of feeling and
behaviour among what has been
classed the "four hundred." The society columns read like fairy tales to
the work-a-day world. Long ago
some old wise-acre wrote, that, "every
good little boy may become president
of the U. S., and every good little
girl may become the president's lady,"
and so these highly colored reporits
of the new rich which have sprung up
in a night like "Jack's beanstalk,"
seem to put pleasure and luxury
within the possible attainment of
everyone, and to deprive class distinctions of their sting. It isn't only in
"Pinafore" that the step from polishing the handle of the big front door
to being Captain in the Queen's
Navee, is accomplished in one short
life; in this country it happens again
and again before middle age. Some
of the fortunes have come by inheritance; their owners, represent what
may be called the aristocracy of the
land; but if we are talking broadly
the proportion is small; a far greater
number of our wealthy people have
made their own success by sheer grit
and ability, and perhaps push their
freedom beyond the limits of wisdom.
They have swept out offices, occupied humble positions in shops, worked in smelters or dug their treasure
from the earth, and then when opportunity came their way recognized it
beneath its protean disguises, and
held it fast. They furnish to their
poorer brothers and sisters a realization of romance—of aspirations and
ambitions denied to themselves—and
nothing is begrudged to these favorites of the gods so long as they behave themselves decently. A taste
for display only adds to their popularity; a little eccentricity only differentiates them from the general
herd, and if they are fortunate enough
to possess an altruistic taste, no matter how rudimentary, they are credited
with heart qualities as solid as their
silver.

Standards of " Semi-ready.'
A very natural thought comes to
me. How do these people compare
with the lady of tradition? Indeed,
I may go a step further and ask—
how they compare with their own
children brought up in luxury their
parents were denied? Are they an
advantage or a menace to society; do
they feel the moral responsibility of
their wealth, or do they value it
chiefly as a means of self-aggrandizement?
Let us trust that they feel a conscientious regard for the obligations
their money entails. A space shut in
and guarded is apt to produce somewhat narrow-minded votaries who
feel that nice conduct belongs by inheritance to the well born. Society
is like a mayonnaise—it will take up
what is rubbed in drop by drop, while
it curdles at too liberal a dash from
the cruet.
So much has been written about
the subject, that what was intangible
has taken substance through the
rough touch of public interest. An
importance which few well-bred people would have arrogated to themselves has been thrust upon them by
the newspapers in daily records of
their doings. Privacy has eluded
them. They have been formed into
a hierarchy sitting behind golden
bars, and the outside world watches
for the next admission.
Those inside are not antagonistic
to those without; they simply don't
want to take the trouble to form nc---
acquaintances unless it is easier to do
so than not. Already they know
twice as many people as they want
to, and I do not believe the social
goal is attained by the helping hand
of friends—even if these friends are
themselves of the elect.

To the Editor of The Week:
In last Saturday's "Week" I
noticed an article contributed by a
person signing the title "Victoria
Girl," and her criticism of the Victoria men seemed to me to be unfair.
Being one of the Victoria men, I
wish to express myself upon this engrossing subject.
There is very good reason to believe that the writer of last week's
article has her matrimonial aspirations centered upon the fascinating
sign "$" just as the vast majority of
society girls have. There is a lamentable fact that thc girl who insists upon having a "good time" is
not the most successful as a "home
maker," and that is what every practical man wants.
A life of ease, luxury and social
indulgencies is what many girls aspire to. Automobile rides, theatre
parties and expensive lunches, supplemented by an extensive and costly
wardrobe, and numerous presents are
not easily nor conveniently contributed by a man who earns his living
in Victoria. And the honest, industrious man does not look for a wife
among the girls whose sole ambitions
is to be in the whirl of society, etc.

There are men in Victoria who are
not given to display beyond their
means. They dress tastily and live
consistently within their means and
have a snug little bank account and
the fact that they do not devote this
fund to giving the "Victoria Girl" and
others a "good time" is a tribute to
their  good  common   sense.
What would be gained by working
all day and spending the income of
the day's labour upon some girl who
lives only for the present and is hard
to please otherwise than by being
given a good time.
These Englishmen, who seem to
be so lionized by society women, are
in most cases remittance men who
have never earned an honest dollar
by labor, but rather have spent their
time doing the grandstand act for
the amusement of the ladies, and
could do nothing else.
I hope there is no man in Victoria
who is weak enough to confess that
he regrets that he cannot find a wife
among society women in Victoria or
elsewhere.
The "Mr. Right" referred to need
not be a busy man, all he needs is
plenty of inherited wealth and social
tact and he will do!
I cannot attribute Hie failure of the
Victoria men to give the girls a good
time to selfishness or lack of ambition. I don't believe the "Victoria
Girl" does. Boys, let the English
spendthrift have full swing for the
present. He is here today and away
tomorrow and when the effects of
the "good time" have passed off, the
girls will be looking for "men," then
1 we will speak our little piece.
I don't wish to have my views
regarded as a personal challenge nor
I a thrust at any particular person, as
I  have always left these  girls  who
I crave for "good times" severely alone
and shall continue to do so. When
I wish to get married I shall look
I for her outside the "society element."
It is  a  difficult task to undertake
I to domesticate a woman after she has
spent a few years in society and
"good times." I don't want to the job
myself.   I will put up the dough my-
I self willingly when the occasion justifies it.
Thanking you for your space, etc.,

Prosperous Nelson.
From all accounts the Capital  of
lthe Kootenays is  enjoying a period
lof prosperity which should make it
■the envy of almost any other city in
lthe Province.    Not only is business
|good, and real estate changing hands
at  continually  enhanced  prices,  but
Iwhat is of far greater importance, the
^shores of Kootenay Lake are rapidly
being   converted   into   an   unbroken
Istretch of orchards.   A recent visitor
vho has been away from Nelson only
little more than a year declares that
pe change along the Lake is wonderful, and at the present rate of development, in another year there will
pot be an uncultivated patch between
kelson and Proctor.   This will mean
twenty miles of the finest fruit farms
In the world on either side of Koot-
J:nay Lake, and there is nothing to
prevent the same thing between Proc-
ler and Kaslo to the North, and Procter  and   Kootenay   Landing  to   the
"pouth.    One of the most gratifying
features is that old residents are now
reaping the  benefit of their  investments.   They had faith in their city
Ind it is being justified.
A Clean Sweep.
The police commissioners of New
IVestminster have decided to make a
■lean sweep of the restricted district,
the policy is all right. Its success
will depend upon the way it is carried
lut. When a street is deep in mud
Ind slush, the attempt to clean it by
■weeping all this mud into the sewers
liay be a success if the sewers are
Itrge enough to carry it away, but if
lie conduit is too restricted it will
let choked and the mud will "back
Ip." This illustrates what has hap-
\]jtd in every instance where the
jlSan sweep has been applied to re-
Itricted districts. Enlightened public
■pinion is a unit in favour of the
lolicy of New Westminster, but a sat-
lfactory method of applying it has
let to be found.

Not long since, I spent the evening in a friend's house, and noticing
that the youngest uf the family, a
charming girl of 15 or so appeared
weary and languid. 1 enquired the
cause, as she usually was very bright,
lively, and sweet tempered. The
mother explained that the fagging
system to which she and other pupils
were subjected in the public school
was proving too much for the child.
Instead of being dismissed at the
proper hour of 3 o'clock, thc class
was kept in until any time from 3.30
to 4 o'clock; the child got home,
wearied to death, and with such a
budget of home studies that it was
always late at night before they were
completed. "In consequence," she
said, "the girl is losing health and
spirits; her appetitite is poor, and
naturally, her temper is affected. As
for studying music, learning homework, or fancy work of any kind, to
say nothing of recreation, it is quite
out of thc question; she is losing all
ambition in these directions, besides
having no time to go in for them."
This system struck mc as being
most arbitrary and unjust. 1 havo
been given to understand that the
legal hours for compulsory education arc plainly laid down, and after
that, their time should bc their own,
or their parents', for recreation, or
for being trained in the many social
arts and accomplishments which arc
so essential to the proper bringing
up of a child, and which are quite as
necessary as book learning, and far
more so than the learned medical
phrases, the 'isms and 'ologics, which
will never be of more use to the average child than is the fifth wheel to
the coach.
These but torment the tired brain,
and nine-tenths of the children who
can, parrot-like, talk glibly of the
passage of the blood through the human system, cannot extract the square
root, cannot do simple rule of three,
or explain why metal bars contract
and expand under certain conditions.
The practical things that the business man or woman of the present
hard-headed age must essentially have
at their fingers' ends, seem to be left
to care for themselves while the arts
and sciences least used, needed by
the fewer number, are crammed into
aching brains, which abhor them, and
which will cast them out the first
year of leaving school.
The teaching of good, wholesome,
practical subjects, to thc exclusion of
the less required sciences, and above
all the observance of proper school
hours, in order that the child may
have the chance to learn home arts,
under the beneficial influence of a
mother, should, I think, bc the aim
of the  education  departments.
Tt seems that I am not the only
one who has encountered the evil
odours emanating from the burning
of the civic garbage heap at the rear
of the James' Bay mud flats. Verily!
there should be no ground for compelling the chemical works to carry
off its unsavoury vapours, when the
City Fathers themselves are responsible for this other villainous menace
to public health and comfort. The
question naturally arises, why did they
ever set the stuff afire, and having
done so, why suffocate the good citizens of Victoria by allowing the fire
to continue? If it is being burned because of being an unsanitary heap of
garbage, why was it ever allowed to
be deposited where it is? Really, the
fumes of the chemical works, and the
odours of Rock Bay, are as the spices
of Araby in comparison. The everlasting thanks of a suffering public,
will be accorded when the fire is
put out.
The repairing of the Government
Street pavement seems to be as far
in the misty future as ever. The property owners refuse to pay, contending that they paid once, for ten years'
service, and as the specified time has
not yet expired, the city should make
good their contract. As the city does
not see it that way, the lakes and
mountain gorges remain, and the probabilities are that with the first southeast storm, there will be excellent
duck and snipe shooting on this thoroughfare. Meanwhile, it has its value.
An old Indian lady, after spending a
morning in mucking about the aforesaid garbage heap, a few days ago,
upon arriving to Government street,
quietly sat down and made her ablutions, using one of the ponds for a
wash basin, and another for a looking glass.
Also, it is said, that autoists love
this street, as the crevasses make good
holding, and reduce the danger of
"skidding" to a minimum, as the machines perform their war dances in
wild efforts to annihilate time—and
people.
I note that my good friend, the
editor, has stirred up a bee's byke
by his little dab at marriage statistics.
Of course it is "up to" the Victoria
men to "buck up," and no doubt there
are scores of damsel-hungry swains
even now waiting their chances. By
the way, would it not be well for
"Victoria Girl" to give her definition
of a "good time," classify its various
phases under proper headings, and
give cost (approximately) of each
degree of the "time"?
Then again, there may be different
kinds of the "time," boating (in season), auto-bumping (out of season),
a "screaming time," a "perfectly lovely time," a "daffy time," and so on.
The aforesaid hungering young men
then might properly wear placards,
printed with the description of the
sort of "time" they were able to
afford according to the schedule of
prices which it is clearly "Victoria
Girl's" duty to provide. One of the
first  applicants  will  be
plied the comedian, "I've done a good
many."

An amusing story is told about a
prisoner who was charged with felony
the other day at Bow Street Police
Court.
On his way to the police station hc
became quite confidential with his
captor, and remarked:
"There is one thing I am sorry
for."
"What is that?" said his captor, expecting to hear a confession.
"I had my hair cut last night," said
the prisoner, in a dejected tone. "I
might have saved that threepence. It's
just my luck."
"Could you do the landlord in 'The
Lady of Lyons'?" asked the manager.
"Well, I should think I might," re
in Other Days.

and a jolly sight less of Greek,

their cooks
On an average once a week.

Nor  talked with a  twang in the)

They left those fashions to us.

And vanished at ten to bed.

I   The Drama. *
"Marrying Mary" is a satire on divorce and the story takes place at
a hotel in Florida and is in three
acts. It is built around the character of Mary Montgomery, played
by Miss Cahill, who has been married and divorced three times. No.
1 is Senator Bunchgrass, old enough
to be her father, forced on her by
her family, and whom she deserted
and from whom she procured a divorce in South Dakota. No. 2 was
an eloquent evangelist under whose
influence she fell and secretly married, only to find out immediately
that he was a Mormon Bishop. She
left him at the station. No. 3 was a
cousin. She and he were left a fortune by a rich uncle on condition that
they marry, so they agreed to marry
and be divorcer, he furnishing all
the necessary grounds for divorce.
The agreement was executed.
It was while Mary was waiting at
a hotel in Florida with heavy bills
staring her in. the face, pending the
settlement of her uncle's estate, that
she met and fell in love with Ormsby
Culpepper and he with her. He was
a young Congressman with a hobby,
which was a Federal bill to abolish
divorce. He was a crank on the subject. None at the hotel knew of her
past and she preferred to leave Ormsby rather than to tell him the truth.
Ormsby's father (Col. Culpepper)
was a three times divorce himself. He
early opposed Ormsby's marriage to
Mary, and did it so vigorously that
he fell in love with her himself.
To complicate matters the Mormon
Bishop comes on the scene; then
Cousin Willie enters in connection
with the settlement of their uncle's
estate, and lastly comes Senator
Bunchgrass who has been in the vicinity tarpon fishing.
Her awfully divorceful past being
about to be revealed to her lover,
Mary, in sheer desperation, attempts
to escape all her predicaments by
leaving the hotel. She escapes secretly, but the train is wrecked and she
is forced to remain to face the boiling pot of her troubles. The day
following the wreck finds Mary fighting proposals of marriage from
Ormsby, his father, Col. Culpepper,
and her pastor, Rev. Throckmorton,
on the one hand, and a constant fear
of a revelation of her many divorces
on the other.
Her fears are realized, for the marriages to Cousin Willie and the Mormon Bishop are discovered before all
the guests and just as she is about to
be overwhelmed with shame, Ormsby
tells her he cares nothing for anybody but her, and they are secretly
married.
As they are unable to leave the
hotel because of the wreck, they are
obliged to announce their marriage.
All is then happiness itself and promises to continue so until Senator
Bunchgrass enters. Overwhelmed at
the pending shame of admitting another divorce, Mary determines to
keep it from her husband, and from
the situation resulting, Mr. Boyle develops ;>. most  delightful  comedy.
While Mary tries to keep her secret
from Ormsby who is thrown in frequent contact with Bunchgrass, both
being members of Congress, Bunchgrass meets her, falls in love all over
again, and not only proposes marriage to her but tells Ormsby, not
knowing'Mary is his wife, that he
] intends to marry her.
"Marry Mary" is however, finally
released from her many troubles and
finds herself happily married to
Ormsby, with a prospect of no further divorces.
"Marrying Mary" will be the attraction at the Victoria Theatre on
Sfonday evening, November 25th.
Sarah Truax comes to the Victoria
Theatre in her new play, "The
Spider's Web," by John Hutchins.
On the play bills "The Spider's Web"
is described as an original drama.
It embodies the salient characteristics
of a big scenic production, a comedy
and a serious drama. Moreover, it
is a play abounding in that intangible
but potent quality called "atmosphere." Admirers of Miss Truax will
recognize quickly in the character she
portrays in "The Spider's Web" a
role' that suits her perfectly. John
Cort is said to have surrounded his
clever star with a company of unusual merit.
Sarah Truax, whose really artistic
work in the role of Roma, in the original production of "The Eternal
City," won her a national reputation in an original drama in three
acts, by John Hutchins, entitled "The
Spider's Web." Miss Truax is starring this season under the management
of John Cort, and is said to be making the greatest "hit" of her wonderfully successful career. The company Mr. Cort has surrounded this
delightful artist with is one of unusual merit, while the production is
fully up to the Cort standard in every
respect.

The big act for next week at the
New Grand wi llbe that of La Belle
Estelita, assisted by Senor Garcia,
in a pantomime in one act, which
they call "The Dancer and The Toreador." Estelita's dances are reported to be wonders of graceful, rythmical measures of Old Spain and her
costumes make the act brilliant and
kaleidoscopic, a veritable feast of
color and poetry of motion. She has
a pretty voice and sings her way
naively into the favour of her audiences. The Brothers DcVan, comedy
acrobats, with their acrobatic dog are
said to have a great act. The Murphy-Whitman company of four will
present a rural comedy sketch "Old
Friends." Miss Flora Browning,
billed as "The Girl with thc Diamond
Heels," is a clever dancer and comedienne. Pete Mack and Eugenie
Dugal will appear in an original
sketch entitled "Grit's Thanksgiving."
Thos. J. Price will sing the illustrated
song, "If I only had a Home, Sweet
Home," and a long moving picture
will show how a British warship is
manned and how the fleet manoeuvres
at sea.
Sporting Notes.
The Victoria Rugby Club is
anxious to reorganize the B. C. Rugby
Union and we hope their efforts will
meet with success. There is no reason why the old union could not bc
re-organized and carried on successfully.
Two very deplorable accidents
occurred in Vancouver last Saturday
whereby Chas. Woodward and E.
Murray are both lying in the hospital with broken legs. This is very
unfortunate especially when efforts
are being made to introduce the game
in the United States, on the plea
that it is cleaner then the American
game with less chances of accidents.
We sympathize with the unfortunate
players and wish them a speedy recovery. Both are good sportsmen
and their services arc too valuable to
have them laid up longer than it is
absolutely   necessary.

musical wonder, the wizard of the
violin, whose art commanded a fortune, whose popularity swayed the
social life of all music-loving cities.
Today, as before, even in a more remarkable degree Jan Kubelik, the Bohemian violinist, has made captive the
great, throbbing heart of two hemispheres. In Mexico, Los Angeles,
Montreal, Portland, San Francisco,
Salt Lake and New York his art and
his personality are as familiar and
as potent as in London, Paris, Berlin
and St. Petersburg. Where Paganini
entranced, Kubelik enthralls. In the
varied dawn of manhood the high
water mark of fame has come to this
young artist, whose genius embodies
the soul of Beethoven, the technique
of Paganini, and an individuality
wholly and delightfully his own. In
the whole gallery of musical giants
there is no career so remarkable as
that wonder worker of virtuosity,
whose tone pictures hold the memory
like the spell of a sorcerer. Wherever
Jan Kubelik goes there follows an
applauding throng moved by the
splendour of his artistic endowments,
the indescribable magnetism of his
innerself.
The varied glamour of his genius
seems to radiate a musical understanding, for distant and only partially informed communities have,
even in the few hours of a hurried
visit, grown as if by inspiration to an
appreciation of his greatness. There
is today no other instrumentalist
like him, all nations acclaim him as
without a peer and from the slopes
of the Pacific to the boulevards of
the Russian capital, his appearances
always involve the absolutely unique
condition of the houses being sold
out several clays in advance.
The Victoria Musical Society performed a master stroke when they
secured Jan Kubelik for this season.
He will appear in Victoria on January 7th.
Pantages Theatre.
The Johnson Street House is enjoying good patronage and putting
up some good attractions. Wc unintentionally omitted giving a report
of last week's performance, but it
may not yet be too late to say that
it was one of the best bills that has
been presented since the opening of
the house and proved a big success
financially. This week's bill, although not as strong as that of last
week, has some good features, particularly the act of the four El Dids,
the acrobatic cyclists who no doubt
stand alone in this particular line of
work. Their feats are marvellous ancl
worth seeing. The Morrells have a
good sketch called "A New Nurse,"
which creates a lot of amusement.
The Nelsons, singers and dancers, do
some good dancing but their singing
is not up to the mark. The Whiting
Trio present a very pretty Indian
playlet. "Cariboo," although somewhat short, it is nicely staged and
makes a very good impression, and
was well received. Morrell & La-
Rosc in the Irish Recruit, is full of
comedy, singing and dancing, and
pleases well. The illustrated song,
"Bye Bye, Dearie," is about the best
heard in the theatre since its opening.
The Pantagcscope reproducing the
"Prodigal Son," is a very good and
interesting film.
For next week the following artists
are booked. Wolff Bros., in their
acrobatic billiard tabic novelty, something entirely new: Davey & Evcr-
son, vocalists, musicians and comedy
sketch artists; Herbert Chesley &
Co., introducing the greatest child
artist ever seen in the city in a dramatic sketch entitled "The Third
Generation." Delia Stacey, singing
comedienne and change artists; Tommy LaRosc, song illustrator, and the
Pantagescope, in new motion pictures.

This condition is not confined to
any one class. Even among men

costume which in the days of our

to accentuate class differences, but
there is a wide margin between thc

those days and that which makes
such excessive demands upon the
pockets of father or husband today.

Notes on
Provincial News
A Progressive Mayor,
Fernie, the Capital of the Kootenay,
furnishes a striking contrast in one
respect with Victoria, the Capital of
B.C. The Mayor of Fernie is Dr.
Bonnell, who came in on construction a young saw-bone fresh from
Magill. His skill and courtesy have
made him one of the most popular
men in the district and now he is
mayor of the city of which he saw
the first log shack built ten years
ago. At a recent meeting of the
City Council the Mayor advocated
municipal ownership of a water system. He said he believed that the
time had come for the city to seriously consider civic ownership of public
utilities in view of the growing needs
of the community. In thc past there
had been much trouble in procuring
and maintaining an adequate water
supply, and with plenty at hand if it
were only properly handled, there is
no reason why _ any inconvenience
should be experienced. Lack of water
cost Fernie property owners three-
quarters of a million dollars about
four years ago, and although matters
have improved somewhat since then,
the present supply is not at all satisfactory for fire protection. A committee of three of the oldest residents (Aldermen) was appointed to
take initial steps in the matter.
the Coast, was elected. The thermometer has fallen below freezing
point several times already and curling may commence early in December.
Hosmer.
This new coal city is developing
rapidly in anticipation of the extensive operations of the C.P.R. on their
coal property. At a recent meeting
of the employees at the Hosmer
mines, Dr. Higgin and Dr. Cartwright were elected surgeons of the
mines by an almost unanimous vote.
Dr. Higgins who has been a respected resident of Fernie for many years,
is a son of Mr. D. M. Higgins, and
brother of Mr. Frank Higgins of Victoria.
Frank Items.
Important changes in the management of some of the coal companies
of thc district will take place the first
of the year. 0. E. S. Whiteside, general manager of the West Canadian
Collieries for the past three years,
will leave the West Canadian to become manager of the International
Coal & Coke company, at Coleman,
while a new manager for the West
Canadian will come from France.
George L. Fraser, superintendent for
the International company, will in all
probability assume the management
of the Alberta Coal company, of
Lundbreck, and the Royal Collieries,
of Lethbridge. Vice-President H. N.
Galer, of the International, Alberta
& Royal companies, will shortly remove to Spokane, where he will make
headquarters and will exercise supervisory control over all three companies. The Alberta Coal company
interests which took over the Brec-
kenridge & Lund mine at Lundbreck,
took charge of the property last
week. It is expected that the preparatory work incident to the re-opening of the mine will be completed
within a week and shipments of coal
commence. Proctor White, superintendent for the Galbraith company,
will direct the underground work and
Mr. Short, accountant for the Galbraith company, will have charge of
the office.
Presentation at Fernie.
The presentation of a very handsome cabinet of silver was made to
R. G. Drinnan, general superintendent of the Crow's Nest Pass Hall on
Thursday evening. Mr. Drinnan is
going to Hosmer to take charge of
the mines there. Mr. G. G. S. Lindsey, president of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company, made the presentation and spoke in terms of appreciation of Mr. Drinnan's services
whilst with his company.
W. H. Evans, of Coal Creek, was
the chairman, and miners, as well as
operators, spoke enthusiastically of
Mr. Drinnan's work, hc being a man
who has had experience in every rung
of the ladder, and in whom workmen
have every confidence.
The staffs at Coal Creek and Fernie
made the presentation, and we understand Michel will also respond.
Mark Tapley.
The Editor of the Grand Forks
Gazette is a lineal descendant of Mark
Tapley of hallowed memory. The
closing down of all the local industries fails to even moderate his optimistic outlook on mundane affairs.
If the citizens are lenient by thousands he declares that it is only the
young unmarried men, that they have
no particular stake anywhere, while
those who have their homes will assuredly stay. He declares that in a
short time the mineral operations in
the district will be entirely outclassed
by the horticultural. Then Grand
Forks will one day be a great railroad
centre. Altogether the Grand Forks
Gazette sees no reason for despondency in what is after all only a temporary setback, and with the finest
valley in the West, the editor concludes that with a little judicious advertising of the same kind which has
brought the Okanagan and the Kootenay to the front, the Boundary country will soon become as well known
and as popular. This is the spirit
which carries new districts to permanent success.

A Blow for the Boundary.
The closing down of the Boundary
mines and smelters is a body blow
for the district. It means throwing
two thousand men out of employment
representing the bread winners for
ten thousand people. It also means
the cessation of pay rolls aggregating nearly $200,000 a month. These
arc the figures which give a concrete
idea of the present dimension and
importance of the district which ten
years ago was unhabited and about
whieh poor Father Pat brought information to the outside world of
such a character that most people considered them fairy tales.
Curling at Cranbrook.
It is a little difficult to realize in
the almost summerlike weather which
Victoria is still enjoying that already
preparations for curling are well under way in Kootenay. Cranbrook is
to the fore. A few days ago the annual meeting of the club was held.
Judge Wilson, the popular president,
who has clone more for curling than
any man in the Kootenay, insisted
on passing the honour on, so J. G.
McCallum was elected in his place.
All the offices were suitably filled,
including that of official umpire, to
which John Cholditch, well known at
Grace Among the Prophets.
Editor Grace of Cranbrook has
adopted a new role. He is now to
be found among the prophets. Last
year the Liberal papers were guessing for at least nine months when the
provincial election would take place.
The Conservative papers are now the
guessers, and they are anxious to
know when there will be a federal
election. Thc Week never prophesies,
but it gave several strong reasons last
month why there is a probability that
Sir Wilfred Laurier will appeal to
the* country next spring, chief among
those being the aquisition of a substantial campaign fund. Editor Grace
shares this view, as will bc gathered
from the following sub-editorial note
in the latest issue of the Prospector:
"Hide it though Sir Wilfrid by
polite mendacity may, there is little
doubt but that there will be a general
Dominion election sprung next spring.
The Laurier government, backed by
the G. T. P. has been fortifying itself as much as possible for thc past
year, and more especially during the
recent by-elections, at which government candidates distributed promises
of all kinds of work as freely as if
they did not cost anything, and evidently working under thc idea that
constituencies could be bribed by a
bridge, wharf, or the building of the
G. T. P."

VOL VI.
Some More About Pavements.
In a former volume, I had occasion
to mention the mighty crevasses and
chasms in the street pavement of "the
Beautiful." One's feelings, hurt to
the bone by the merciless jolts delivered by a pavement seared and
furrowed as a corrugated iron roof,
can only be soothed by much strong
language, which of course, is bad for
the morals of a good town like Victoria. Strangers who visit the town
are popularly supposed to be blind
to these little imperfections, but
though their eyes may be closed to
them, a ride down Government street
on a tally-ho very quickly advises
them that their eyes have been lying
most unmercifully to their anatomies,
with the result that much good English and "Murican" not usually found
in dictionaries, is more or less freely
indulged in. So widely are the dangers of Government street becoming
known, that a well known publishing
firm is seriously considering the advisability of getting up a "danger
chart" showing the location, depth,
and width of the most dangerous
gorges, their magnetic direction, best
crossing points, etc., with an appendix, giving directions how to avoid
these (when possible) means of avoiding spills, and general instructions to
care of patients and treatment of injuries received from crevasse jumping. Yet, though every visitor knows
before landing that he (or she) must
be careful of their footsie wootsies
when walking Government street, we
find the dear, Portly Old Lady of
Broad street gravely telling us that
however bad an advertisement for
"the Beautiful" it may be, she feels
it incumbent on her, in view of Hon.
Mr. Turner's arraignment, to call attention to the bad state of the Government street pavements. Now why
should the Old Lady shirk the unwelcome fact? She has been, for
the last so years (more or less) the
self-styled champion of public rights,
and here we find her calmly folding
her fat hands on her portly tummy
and telling deluded visitors to put on
rose-tinted spectacles and view the
beauties of Government street, only
wakening when Mr. Turner, stung
to shame at the disreputable appearance of his old city, (which has been
commented on time and again by residents), goes after the Board of Trade
on the subject. Fie I Old Lady. Look
these things straight in the face—and
fight to have them remedied.
The recent decision of the Council
to have all vehicles carry lights after
dark will be welcomed by the vast
army of devotees of "Shank's Mare,"
but when these see a couple of freight
trucks jogging quietly along, bright
lights burning, and an auto driven
past at furious speed, without a light,
as on Birdcage Walk the other evening, they are prone to wonder why
the rule is not made universal.
Speaking of the festive Auto-go-
bump, there are two or three drivers
of these scented monstrosities who, if
not shortly haled to gaol for killing
somebody, will themselves be speedily translated to another sphere, or
state, someone will go out with a
club and kill them. The only grief
felt on this occasion will be for the
injury to the good club. Do not
think for a moment that I dislike the
Auto-go-bump, not a bit of it. I am
fond of nature, fond of animals, and
these look to me just like baby elephants with trunks on the wrong end,
and the smell of gasoline which the
creature spouts is good, it helps one
forget the horrors of the chemical
works and Rock Bay. No! I love
the Auto, it is the unhanged villain
of reckless fast driving that I look
upon with murdeMusty eyes. Oh!
for a good club with knots on it.
One free swoop, and bash I what
should  be  brains  would  be  mush.
That people can get lost in the City
of Victoria sounds improbable, yet
none the less this is true, and in
these nights of fog which Kipling
told us we never had it is a marvel
that so few of the comparative stran
gers are lost, for the street names
are wonderfully conspicuous by their
infrequency, and upon one occasion,
while yet a bit shaky as to my bearings, I wandered for some hours in
the wilds of James Bay, finally coming
out at the back of a house, after
crossing an orchard (fruit unripe).
Hailing a benevolent looking old
party, I asked him if he could tell
me where I was, and upon whose property I was walking. "What do you
want to know for?" he asked, in so
fierce a tone that I saw in the immediate future, a chance to plead for
myself in the city police court. I
tried to explain my predicament, but
strange to say, found it hard to convince the old porty, who, having lived
in Victoria for more years than he
had hairs on his head, evidently knew
every knot hole in the fences, every
crack in the sidewalks. I finally managed to get out of the place, feeling
small enough to crawl through one
of the aforesaid knot-holes, and all
because the city will not put up street
names at the corners, in a city where
some of the streets are so bewilder-
ingly short, narrow, and strangely
placed that without a map, none but
the native born can ever hope to feel
any degree of certainty of finding
their way about, and strangers are
quickly at sea after leaving the half
dozen main streets.
Speaking of James Bay reminds me
that the Dallas Road and Beacon Hill
have been disfigured by many fires
during the summer just gone by. The
beaches from the outer wharf along
Dallas Road are strewn with driftwood, and it evidently seems to be
a favourite pastime to set this wood
afire, which .spreading to the dry
grass on the bluffs and slopes, runs
riot over the land, killing the broom
and wild briar, and leaving vast tracts
of black, burnt sod in its track. Beacon Hill is one of the strong points
in the advertisers' description of Victoria; it is truly a beautiful spot, and
used to be more beautiful before being marred by fires, and unsightly
by gravel pits, rock quarries, etc.,
which the present generation seem to
see fit adjuncts to a park, and yet
wonder is constantly being expressed
at the yearly depletion of the numbers of wild flowers which used to
adorn the sweet wild sward of this
lovely spot. Years ago, when the inhabitants of Victoria were supposed
to be semi-savage by the exclusive
citizens of the present age, fires were
unknown in these suburbs. No one
thought of digging gravel holes out
of the Fairfield shore banks, nor of
blasting rock and creating unsightly
craters in what was naturally a beautiful mass of rock with lovely plants
and flowers adorning its crags and
crevices. The strange part of it is
that though there have been many
fires on this, the public domain lately,
there is not one case of the perpetrators being detected and punished, yet
the fire brigade has many times urged
its tired horses out to the Dallas Road
during last summer to put out grass
fires, which, in many cases, were menacing houses and other property in
the neighbourhood. I am interested
in the welfare and the future of Victoria as much as anyone, more than
many, but hope to sec abuses and
desecrations of this sort put down
with no uncertain hand. I hope to
see the day when Victoria's defects
instead of being weakly attempted
to be kept concealed, will be blazoned
forth, and bold steps at once taken
to remedy thc evil. No advertisement is so telling as the fact being
made known to the world that, the
water supply being bad, the citizens
of Victoria rose up en masse, and
insisted upon a system ensuring a
supply sufficient for twice her population, or that her streets being disgracefully bad, pavements were laid
worthy of the city calling herself the
"Beautiful."

individual of ordinary size, the fleshy
woman squeezed herself, much to the
annoyance of the youth. After a moment or so the woman produced a
cheese sandwich, which she proceded
to devour with every evidence of
relish. At this the youth gave her a
look of ineffable disgust, and drew
the skirts of his frock coat closer to
him.
"I suppose, me lad," good-naturedly said the woman, "that ye'd pray

"I certainly would!" snapped the
youngster.
"So would I," calmly responded the
fat person.
Not long ago a Boston municipal
official, who is a stickler for the use
of good English, had occasion to consult a physician new to the community.
After the examination, the doctor
said:
"All you need, sir, is a tonic in the
shape of fresh air."
"Would you mind telling me," asked the purist, sarcastically, "what is
the shape of fresh air?"

OLLA PODRIDA
Wmmm^mmms,
He Hated Children.
"I hate children," he said.
"Why?"
"I think they ought to be locked
up in asylums till they're old enough
to take care of. themselves. If it
hadn't been for a childd—well, it
might have been "
"What?"
"I loved the child's mother. She
was a rich and beautiful woman, and
I was madly in love with her. I was
actually contemplating—in fact, I had
just got to the point of putting the
delicate question. We were in the
drawing-room. The child was playing in the corner. Forgetting all
about that, I put my arm fervently
round the widow's waist and implanted a passionate kiss upon her lips,
when the child started up and rushed
at me, saying: 'Don't you kill my
mamma!' and ran screaming into the
kitchen,  calling for  the  servants."
"That didn't have "
"What, marry a widow with a child
like that! But the worst came a few
nights after. I called at the house.
There were several ladies there, and
the child was being petted all round.
Of course the widow was friendly,
but that confounded child deliberately turned her back upon me. I didn't
mind tliat; but the mother, to be nice,
said: 'My darling child, don't you
know Mr. X ?' 'Oh, yes,' said the
imp very pertly—'oh, yes, I know
you! You are the man that bited my
mammal' I need not—could not—
describe  the  effect."
How To Make Your Wife Love You.
"Aha!" exclaimed Cornelius Hennepin, "here is something that I have
long been looking for, 'How to make
your wife love you!'"
That was the headline over the article which he had started to peruse.
He pulled his glasses out of the case,
fastened them upon his nose, and
cried:—
"Virginia! Virginia, come here. I
want to read something to you."
When his wife arrived he said:—
"Here is a little article that may interest you. I haven't read it through,
but from the way. it starts out I judge
that the writer knows what he or
she is talking about. 'How to make
your wife love you.' That's the heading. Now, let's see what it says:
'Never come home with a sour look
and yell, "Is dinner ready?" as if you
were addressing a slave.' I never do
that, do I, Virginia? 'Always treat
your wife with as much consideration
when you are alone as when company is present.' I think I follow
that rule, don't I, Virginia? 'Never
try to start a cheap laugh by saying
that your wife proposed to you or
roped you in.' I have never done
that, have I, Virginia?" Mr. Hennepin asked. "And yet," he bitterly
continued, "you do not love me as
you ought to. I am only twenty-two
years older than you, and there is no
reason why you should not regard
me with the utmost affection. These
very words ought to convince you
that I am an ideal husband. But let
me continue: 'Do not chew tobacco
all day and expect your wife to meet
you at the door with her mouth all
made up for a loving kiss; and, above
all, do not grumble if she should ask
you for the price of one of those lovely hats in Plumleigh's window.'
The eldest daughter of the family,
a sweet schoolgirl of twelve, had been
packed off into the country, and, as
she herself thought, in a rather mysterious manner. A week later her
■'papa wrote to tell her that dear
mamma had something to show her
when she returned, in the shape of a
dear little baby brother. Ethel replied to his letter five days ago; but
he is still wondering whether he ought
to laugh or institute inquiries that
might lead to the punching of somebody over the concluding sentence of
his daughter's epistle:
"Do, please, papa, wish dear mamma many very happy returns of the
day for me."
Dunkel (to lawyer who is making
out his will): "I vont to leaf each
clerk five tousand pounds dot haf peen
in my employ twenty years."
Lawyer: "Why, that's too liberal,
Mr.  Dunkel."
Dunkel: "Ah, dot's it. None of tem
hal peen mit me ofer von year, und
it makes a good free advertisement
for my poys ven I'm dead, don'd it?"
"So you haven't made Smudger
your partner after all, eh?"
"No, and I'll tell you why. Smudger was engaged to my wife before I
married her, and I don't believe in
becoming too friendly with a man
who has proved himself to be more
wide-awake than I am."
" Confound these advertising
dodges!" exclaimed Cornelius Hennepin; "if the papers don't stop lending themselves to such schemes I'm
going to stop my subscription!"
Late the next afternoon a boy with
a bandbox rushed up the Hennepin
steps.
Counsel: "You were in the saloon-
bar at the time of the event complained of?"
Witness:    "Yes,  sir."
Counsel: " Did you take cognisance
of the bar-keeper at the time?"
Witness: "I don't know what he
called it, but I took what the rest
did."
"No woman can keep a secret," remarked the Stormy Petrol, satirically,
to the wife of his bosom.
"Indeed." was the reply, "and yet
I believe it was Adam who let out
that  little affair  about the  apple."
"Mr. Fairlie," said a lady at a fair,
"won't you please buy this bonnet to
present to the lady you love?"
'"Twouldn't be right," said Mr.
Fairlie; "I'm a married man."

present very little prospect of them
being shifted, unless the Egeria team
springs a surprise. The Bays demonstrated their superiority over the
Shearwater again on Saturday last
when they beat them in a most decided manner. The sailors put up a
plucky fight, but were not in the running after half time. The sailors have
a good team, but they lack the ginger
which is one of the most essential
factors towards winning games. The
Bays were inclined to be slow during
the early stages of the match and
had it not been for their goal tender,
a big score might have been run up
against them, but, fortunately for
them, the sailors were unable to find
the goal. In the second half the
Bays took a decided brace and the
playing of the forwards was a decided
improvement over the first half. It
has been pointed out on several
occasions that the Bays' forward division is inclined to be lazy and shirk
their work, and this was again clearly
shown in the first half of Saturday's
match. This is very bad policy and
one that will sooner or later cause
their team to go down to defeat.
There is nothing like playing the
game from the time the whistle is
sounded until time is called and it is
by this method alone that a winning
team can be maintained. If the Bays
are to be successful in their other
matches it is up to teh forwards to
show that they possess the stamina
to play the game from start to finish.
The game was remarkably clean and
there was no sign of ill feeling among
the players. The Navy team is composed of a bunch of very gentlemanly
players who are a credit to their ship
and to the association of which they
form a part. They showed on Saturday that they could take a beating
like true sportsmen, and from their
manner after the match we are still
inclined to think that there were some
influence brought to bear before they
consented to enter a protest against
the first match with the leaders in
the  race for the  championship.
While the Bays and Shearwater
teams were striving for supremacy at
Oak Bay the Garrison was lowering
the colors of the Esquimalt team at
Work Point. This is the second
occasion on which the Garrison have
handed out a defeat to the navy vil-
liage team and the result was somewhat of a surprise. The defeat of
the Esquimalt team on Saturday has
practically put them out of the run-
i ning for the championship and unless
they manage to win when they meet
the Bays there will be very little
1 chance of them figuring in the battle
I for the little rag of blue.
I The Garrison of late have been play-
j ing good football and any team which
i runs up against them will have to
look well to their laurels. The Fifth
j Regiment suffered defeat at the hands
of the Y.M.C.A. at Beacon Hill and
are now at the bottom of the list
of the teams which are playing and
unless they take a decided brace they
will remain there until the end of the
season. On the whole the class of
football that is being presented to
the public this season is equal if not
better than previous years, and is
deserving of better support. The
teams that are competing arc, with
the exception of the Army and Navy,
composed of local talent entirely and
it is not for the money that they are
playing, but still funds are necessary
to conduct their clubs and unless they
receive the support of the citizens
there is little doubt but that some
of the teams will come out losers. It
is hoped that the remaining games of
the schedule will be witnessed by
larger crowds than has been the case
so far this season. In this connection we have again to refer to the
support that is given the Bay team
by the other members of the club.
This is the oldest athletic association
in the city and with their team at the
top of the race for the pennant the
members should show more interest
in the team that is representing the
club and at the same time show the
supporters of the other clubs how
to encourage their players. It is all
very well for the players to go out
Saturday after Saturday and exert
themselves for the honour of the club
and the least that can be done by
the non-players is to turn out and
root. These remarks not only apply
to the Bays but to all other clubs in
the league. If there was a little more
patriotism among the members of the
clubs which have teams in the league
it would not be long until association football would become the most
popular sport in Victoria. All that is
required is for the members to turn
out and encourage their players and
their example will quickly be followed by the members of the other
organizations.
undue influence had been used to have
the sailor lads make the protest and
it is to their credit that they found
their mistake before they went too
far. Games that are won in the committee room are never satisfactory
and generally cause considerable hard
feeling.
A. Rutherford, referee in the Shearwater-Bay match on Saturday, set a
precedent by starting the game within three minutes of the advertised
time. This is as it should be and we
congratulate Mr. Rutherford on his
efforts towards being punctual and
hope that the other officials will follow his example.
It is with pleasure that we learn
that the Shearwater club withdrew
their protest against the J.B.A.A. As
we said before it appeared as if some

The decision of the J.B.A.A. to enter in the Island League competition
is hailed with delight by the lovers
of soccer in this city, and although
they can hardly hope to achieve the
same success as they have met with
in the City League there is no reason
why they should not make a hard
fight for the championship of the
Island. It is expected that at least
two other teams will be entered from
this end of the Island.' Last season
the Egeria was in the competition
and made a good running, but a combination from the Shearwater and
Egeria would prove a stumbling
block to the aspirations of some of
the other teams. In addition to this
it is very probable that a second city
team will enter composed of a picked
team from the other clubs in the
City League. In this manner three
first class organizations could be represented and would without doubt
hold their own against anything that
could be secured at the Nanaimo end
of the league.
The members of the ladies' and
gentlemen's hockey clubs have combined their energies and on December
7th they will usher in the season with
a double-header at Oak Bay. The
ladies will meet their rivals from Nanaimo while the Seattle club will
make its initial appearance in the
game by trying conclusions with the
men. This should prove a strong
card and should attract a large crowd.
In the evening the local club will
entertain their visitors at a dance in
the A.O.U.W. hall . It is the custom of the local club to make this
an opportunity for the visiting players to meet the supporters of the
game in Victoria and in the past their
efforts have always met with decided
success. There is nothing like harmony to make a success of any organization. It is hoped that the lovers
of good clean, healthy sport will not
overlook the date and assist the local
chib by getting tickets.
"Poor man!" exclaimed an old
lady; "you have no friends?"
"No, madam," replied the beggar;
"I used to be a football referee."
