The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
The local press is a unit in profile Lord's testing against the Lord's Day
pay Act. Act whicli becomes law to every
law-abiding citizen of Canada
n March 1st. It can hardly be blamed if
ne is to accept the dictum of Capt. Wolley,
tat all journalism in Canada is materialistic,
nd the only consideration which it recognizes
I that of the dollar. The papers which are
eclaiming against the stoppage of Sunday
ewspapers are neither "candid nor sincere."
hey claim that the ground of their objection
1, that the newspaper published on Monday
jiorning involves more Sunday work than one
ublished on Sunday morning. This is not
rue as a matter of fact, nor is it an explana-
lon of their resistance to the law. The real
eason is that like the sooth-sayers of old,
ie stoppage of a Sunday newspaper means a
sduction in their gains. The attitude of the
ress in this matter is just as sordid as the
ttitude of every organization which has
ought the Act and the work of the Alliance
tep by step from its initiation to its consumption. In the last issue it has always been
he question of the dollar.   When driven into
(corner the final argument of all commercial
pponents has been "It will increase the cost
f production." This argument has been put
efore the people of Canada in the most
pecious. form, and with unwavering persist-
|nce for seven years. They answered it
hrough their duly elected representatives at
he last session of Parliament, by passing the
peasure which represented the overwhelming
(rinion of Canadians.   A section of the Brit-
h Columbia press desires to evade the opera-
ons of the Act on the plea already stated,
id on the further pretext that the people
I. this Province are not at one with those of
ie other Provinces in their attitude on this
lestion. Sueh an assumption is purely gratu-
ous.   The Week has again and again pointed
it that no demand whatever has come from
ie public on this matter.   The agitation has
sen worked up entirely by a section of the
lily press in the interests of larger profits.
Iiere is every reason to believe that the peo-
e of British Columbia are in accord with
e whole of the Dominion in desiring to see
measure enforced which, whatever its de-
cts, is conceived in the highest spirit of
nsideration  and fairness.    The opponents
tthe measure forget when urging the Attor-
y General of this Province to practically
sallow the Act that they are asking him to

[ was given as a protection against the abuse
. its provisions and to prevent reckless or
ndictive setting in motion of the Act by
er-zealous or unscrupulous informers.  Any
her interpretation would be ultra vires of
e intent of the measure, and all that the
ttorney General of this or any other Provide could be expected to do is honourably
safeguard the operations of the Act which
s received the imprimatur of the Dominion
irliament.    Further, those who are urging
e Attorney General of this Province to re-
se his  consent to  any prosecutions made
der the Act, lose sight of the fact that such
Dine of conduct would be in direct violation
the principle which has been established
an appeal, first to the Supreme Court of
|mada and subsequently to the Privy Coun-
whereby it has been established that the
gulation  of  Sunday  observance  is  a Do-
|nioii matter.   It is obviously outside those
subjects which have any local character such
as would entitle separate Provinces to deal
with them in a different manner.   There is
hardly a subject so obviously one of National
importance and one which should be dealt
with according to the National spirit.   It is
regrettable that in the attempt to bolster up
an untenable position, the local press should
have had recourse to misstatement of fact.
If the present editor of the Colonist is not
aware that the opponents of the measure were
represented, and well represented at Ottawa
during the  debate,  his predecessor,  or any
then member of the staff could have put him
right.    A very strong, organized opposition
was waged,  and every inch of the ground
contested.   That Dr. Rochester was not aware
of this is due to the fact that he was not at
that time an officer of the Alliance, but the
General Secretary. Rev. J. G. Shearer, and
the Associate Secretary, Rev. T. Albert Moore,
who were in constant telegraphic communication with Victoria, know how strong that
opposition was.    It failed to convince, but
does not know how to take a beating.   The
allegation that a Monday newspaper involves
more Sunday work than a Sunday newspaper
is not true.  It may be so under the antiquated
methods which prevail in the local press offices, but it is all a matter of organization
and system.   At least 75 per cent of a Monday morning paper in Victoria would be prepared and printed on Saturday night, indeed
the only new matter which would be inserted
for Monday morning would be the telegraphic
service.   It would be a great advantage to
business men to have this by wire on Monday
instead of having it dished up from the Seattle papers on Tuesday morning, when it is
practically two days old.   It would also be a
p-re-r. relief not only to business men. but to
/ho appreciate interesting matter to get
the paper on Monday, which would necessitate
the suppression of a page or two of psychological, physiological, theological and pseudo-
philosophical twaddle for the news of the day.
If the abolition of the Sunday newspaper does
nothing more for Victoria than to force the
daily press to print news and to eliminate
sensational  stories  and  fake  despatches,  it
will deserve well of the residents of Vancouver Island.   Meanwhile, there is little doubt
that the Attorney General will take a more
serious and statesmanlike view of his responsibilities than seems possible  to those who
control the local press.

Much less than ten hours will tie a determining factor in such an important matter.   The
fact that Esquimalt Harbour is in itself a

A   fortnight    ago   The
The Future Week published an orig-
Premier of Canada,   inal cartoon from the pen
of its gifted artist, Mr.
W. H. Stokes, depicting the future political
career of Hon. Richard McBride.    The suggestion embodied in the cartoon has attracted
general interest and elicited numerous comments, nearly all of a favourable character.
Mr. McBride is still  a young man, several
years on the sunny side of forty.   The Week
was the first to recognise the posisbility of his
attaining to the highest position in the Dominion.    During the four years of his first
administration  in  spite   of   most  disadvantageous circumstances he conducted the affairs
of the Province in a manner which has greatly
enhanced its prosperity, produced order out of
chaos and created confidence in those circles
which are most influential in promoting general prosperity.   He did more, he revealed a
remarkable capacity for controlling his party
and reconciling conflicting interests.   All this
might   have   brought   him   only   Porvincial
kudos, but his attitude at the Ottawa Conference exposed him to observation in a wider
and more important arena.   Independent witnesses who attended the sittings of the Conference declared that his personality was more
impressive than that of any other member, and
that he produced a practical effect is demonstrated by the fact that he left Ottawa with
the principle for which he contended fully
conceded by Sir Wilfrid Laurier.   Since then
his administration has been signally and n-
deed enthusiastically endorsed by the electorate, who realise that at the psychological
moment there has arrived the man who can
mould the future policy of the Province and
shape its destiny.   Already Premier McBride
has taken the initial steps towards an attitude
of firmness and resoluteness in his dealings
with the G. T. P.   The tide of monopoly and
graft whicli has characterised the advance of
this corporation through Central and Western
Canada rolls against a rampart of rock, firm
Several   subscribers    of

to the general public of Victoria to assist him! 	
in paying off a mortgaged indebtedness oft as adamant, when it reaches the Province of
$5,000, which he admits is nine months over- f British Columbia; and Premier McBride is the

Terminus.       follow the lead of the Victoria
press in advocating the bridging of Seymour Narrows, but such an attempt
to curry favour with local subscribers is more
in line with the policy of a daily newspaper
than a weekly review. That such a project
is practicable from an engineering standpoint
may at once be conceded. That it is within
the range of practical politics or that it will
become an economic possibilty inside of fifty
years is out of the question. Tliere are many
things of greater importance both to Victoria
and the Island, and if the newspapers in
question have any influence it would be far
better to exert it in the direction of helping
on practical schemes which will inure to the
benefit of the Island during the lifetime of
the present generation. Some men possess a
singular ineptitude for seizing on the wrong
thing'. They lack all sense of proportion and
a mirage always appears to them more substantial than a concrete fact. Mr. Edward
Musgrave has written very intelligently on
this subject and has probably urged everv-
nominations can have to do with the private
indebtedness of the Baptist community is not
very clear to the lay mind, although it is only
charitable to assume that it is understood of
the clerical.    It is, however, perfectly clear
that the adherents of the church in question
are cither unable or unwilling to meet  the
obligations which they have incurred in connection witli their church, and that their pastor is humiliating them and bringing tlio Chris-
ttan  Church  as  a whole  into  contempt   by
pursuing a cheap method of raising tlie wind,
which  is fairly   equivalent   to   the "given
away with a pound of tea" system.   In order
to impart some resemblance to fair dealing
into the transaction the public are asked to
purchase tickets for an entertainment which
the pastor modestly declares "will be too rich
a treat tn miss."   The flinisiness of the pretext is apparent when he urges that the tickets be purchased "whether you can come or
not."   Shades of Thomas Binney, Charles H.
Spurgeon, and other Baptist worthies, to what
base uses is the conventicle put in these degenerate  days  by men  whose  most notable
achievement is  to plunge their church  into
debt and then ask people of other denominations, or of no denomination nt all, to help
them out of the hole?   Victoria has had one
taste of the quality of these twentieth century
shepherds in connection with the administration of the Orphanage.   It looks as if they
failed to learn their lesson at thnt time, but
it is to be hoped that the attitude of the public
towards tlie present appeal will be more convincing.

the hundred arrived, and the landlady's claims being ignored, was

which strongly urge the erection of

Dear Madge:
Great changes will come with the
spring as far as the fashioning of our
frocks go, so say the smart French
dressmaker and    the   clever London
modiste. The point in the gown which
undoubtedly tells  its age more particularly than any other is the shape
of the sleeves, and it is in this respect
that our frocks wil! undergo a great
change.    For one thing they will be
infinitely simpler:  the multitudes  of
small frills are vanishing entirely, and
though they will still be full, it will
be a discrct fulness of well-arranged
folds of pleats  and  much straighter.
Great elaboration of   beadwork will
still bc used on the cuffs and embroideries on the sleeve itself, but the fuss-
iness of outline is quite condemned.
In extreme contrast to the  simpler
sleeve is a revival that is having an
immense success for smart frocks and
coats.   This is the kimono sleeve, cut
in one with the rest of the garment
it  belongs  to — a  kimono  sleeve,  it
must be owned, that is elaborated and
draped  and  curtailed out of almost
all recognition except that it is always
! wide open at the base and seamless
; as to the shoulder, like the sleeve of
[its origin.    These sleeves are unfailingly charming, and it is small won-
! der that they are having such a vogue.
They are particularly graceful in the
I elaborate loose little coats which are
' being   worn   with   the   high-waisted
.skirts.   Then, again, a chance which
[will in many ways be most welcomed
-particularly as  to our glove bill—
I will hc that the sleeves of coats and
day gowns will  bc of their  normal
[ length  again;  in  many cases  indeed
they  will  be  remarkably    long  and
t closely fitting over the wrist.   For thc
1 evening thc  diminutive  fluffy  sleeve
still retains its hold upon us and is
often the merest suggestion of lace
and chiffon, but there is a stronger
tendency than ever towards individuality, and in the evening it is unlikely
that one will often see two frocks
with sleeves alike. Our own ideas
and our particular fancies among the
fashions of the past find expression
in our sleeves, and evening gowns
often owe their success to the beautiful and uncommon designs that are
shown in this important part of their
making.
So consistently, indeed, are thc
changes rung upon lace and velvet for
our evening attire that one is grateful
for the occasional relief of plain satin
or glittering sequin. Crepe de chine
properly handled furnishes an ideal
princess robe, a striking example being a gown of this exquisite fabric in
white skilfully draped about the waist
and trimmed with black and white
"motifs" of silk embroidery. The latter form a deep encrusted bordering
to the long-trained skirt and outline
the "decolletage," and sleeves strictly
in keeping with thc charming toilette
was a very deep jet dog collar, the
only ornament.
The drawing-room, or "withdrawing room" as it was originally called,
of all the rooms in the house has perhaps naturally the largest share of a
woman's regard and consideration. Its
social importance, so to speak, gives
il precedence of all the other rooms,
and it may generally be regarded as
a sort of index to the status and character of its owners. In all that pertains to this room its mistress feels
that she must "put her best foot foremost," for here she has to receive her
friends, and perhaps—her enemies. It
represents "herself" as she wishes to
be represented to the eyes of the
world. It is the pride of her heart
and the apple of her eye. She lavishes upon it all that is artistic and
aesthetic within her. Resides the usuul
equipments which conventionality demands— the lixed decorations, the
movable furniture, thc draperies, pictures  and  other  ornamental   access
ories—there must be that "personal
note" which is really the indication of
the individuality of the "chatelaine."
This can only be expressed in those
little delicate touches which are quite
otttsied the decorator's domain and
are full of subtle suggestion as to
taste and character of the inhabitant
of thc room. People of discernment
who know the world can tell after thc
first glance round a room what manner of woman its mistress is. The
decoration and furnishing of the drawing-room may be elegantly simple or
richly ornate, according to the taste
and station of its owner, but comfort, simplicity, and repose arc thc
things most to be desired and aimed
at. And the greatest of these is comfort, which when applied to drawing-
rooms means not only physical comfort of the animal but the aesthetic
comfort of the artist. These qualities, especially thc last, arc desirable
in every room in the home, but they
are essential in the one whose very
name suggests after-dinner case and
the pleasant social intercourse for
which the apartment has been intended from time immemorial.

Literary Notes.
A new edition, published in this
country by thc Macmillan Company,
of W. T. Arnold's standard work on
"The Roman System of Provincial
Administration," appears in circumstances which give it an exceptional
personal interest. Arnold, who was a
grandson of thc famous Rugby Headmaster, died in 1904. Although a busy
newspaper editor and reviewer, his
one important literary work was his
treatise on Roman Provincial Administration, which was first published a
number of years ago, and has remained the standard English book on
its subject. At the time of his death
Arnold was engaged in preparing a
revised edition, and thc work was
taken up by E. S. Shuckburgh, thc
famous Oxford scholar, and a close
personal friend,   Dr. Shuckburgh had
Prof. Goldwin Smith was an inveterate theatre-goer in his younger days
and hc remembers well some of thc
famous players of thc last century.
For that reason, apart from his unerring style as a writer, his article,
"Thc Stage of Former Days," which
appears in thc Canadian Magazine for
February, is of unusual interest. It
is a pleasure to read Dr. Smith's
comment in what may be called "a
lighter vein." Hc takes thc stand
that the stage might be a powerful
organ of culture, and he concludes
that if Mr. Carnegie had endowed
theatres instead of libraries (which,
hc observes, arc increasing fast
enough of themselves) thc money
might have been better placed. As
Dr. Smith always expresses a definite
opinion, there is plenty of chance '11
ihis instance to differ from his views.
The article is accompanied by nine
reproductions from old engravings nf
famous players of a half-century ago,
together witli a full-page illustration
of Sadelr's Wells Theatre, which was
a famous place nf entertainment in
old London. The number contains
also eight other illustrated articles,
and three without illustrations, besides live shotr stories. There, is as
well the usual amount of comment,
verse and light material.
There arc thousands in Europe who
would bc only too glad to get employment at decent wages. I am certain that thc railways don't try in an
earnest and business-like manner to
get men. Why don't they open free
employment offices both in Europe
and in America. I should not bc
afraid to take a contract to get 5,000
or 6,000 in a month. From observation I havc formed thc opinion that
cheap Chinese labour is more fancied
than real. I think in heavy manual
labour that a dollar gives as good
results spent in white labour as in
yellow albour. Public companies
ought to realise that imported white
labour is likely to permanently benefit
them more than Chinese, by the extra spending habits of thu white population, apart from patriotic reasons.
Working men, trades unions, and
everyone who wishes thc tax to remain, ought to hold public meetings,
pass resolutions and try every menus
in let thc Government see that the
public do not want the tax taken off.

LABOUR SCARCITY.
To tiie Editor:
Sir—Please allow me to express my
appreciation of the patriotic and sensible article you had in last Saturday's issue on the proposal to remove the Chinese head-tax. T believe that the outcry of thc capitalists,
railways, etc., is caused by their dc-
sidc to have the tax removed. I
know that if thc right means nre
used, white labour can easily be procured for any amount of development.

On Tuesday last Mrs. R. B. McMicking entertained the members of
the Victoria Literary Society at her
house on Kingston street. A Shakespearian contest was the feature of
the evening, and proved most amusing as well as instructive. There
were two prizes given in each of the
two tests, in the first of which Mrs.
L. H. Hardie and Mrs. MacFarlanc
were the successful competitors, and
in the second Mrs. MacFarlanc and
Mrs. Dumbleton. Mr. Palmer acted
as judge and gave great satisfaction.
Later in the evening light refreshments were provided, thc supper table
being charmingly adorned with red
carnations grouped round a handsome
centre-piece, surrounded by ferns, and
lighted by tastefully arranged electric
bulbs.

W. BLAKEMORE..Manager and Editor
Writing to Order.
Capt.    Glive    Phillips-Wolley    has
written a very interesting article on
thc subject of Canadian literature in
which he has covered a lot of ground
and touched upon most of the salient
features of the literateur's life in the
Western world.   His main conclusion
is   that   in   Canada   and   the   United
States there are few writers who do
not  write  to  order,  and  who  under
the compulsion of stern necessity are
not bound  to  consider  the  requirements of those who hire them rather
than  their own personal  inclination.
In other words, the bane of everything Western has permeated literature,   and   rendered   it   materialistic.
Under these conditions it is out of
the question to expect the writers of
the New World to approach the standard  set  by  the  Old,  everything  is
tinged with the shadow of commercialism, our best writers are employed
by firms which manufacture soap or
pills or furniture, even so-called poets
are  impressed  into    the  service   of
Mammon, and whilst European countries  are  continually  producing new
authors of promise and brilliancy, the
Western world at its best is only able
to supply  a large number  of  indifferent contributors to magazines and
a few literary aspirants whose style is
invariably journalese.    In the  realm
of  poetry,    philosophy    and  fiction,
which afford the widest scope for the
display of originality and imagination,
this Continent has not produced more
distinguished authors    than    can be
counted upon the fingers of one hand.
When   Longfellow,   Emerson,   Hawthorne,   Bryant  and  Poe  have  been
mentioned,  who  remains  that  could
for a moment be classed with the immortals?    The  American  writers  of
today are as far below the five mentioned as they themselves are below
the standard of the great  European
authors, and when one comes to Canada thc mention of our noblest names
registers  a  still  lower  standard.     I
suppose it will be conceded that the
only names to conjure with are Parker, Roberts, Wilfred Campbell and
Bliss Carman, and the last named can
hardly be taken seriously because of
his habitual  flippancy.    If  Campbell
had lived he might have written Can-
ada?s first lyric.    Parker is at times
entertaining with flashes of brilliance,
and long intervals of dulness.    Roberts has produced several works which
have   a   distinction   and   a   style   of
their  own,  but  none  of  these  have
approached thc  standard set by thc
best American authors, and must be
considered inferior even to their leading contemporaries soutli of thc line.
I do not know whether Capt. Wolley, who is himself a literatcur of no
mean order, and an excellent judge,
would agree with these appraisements,
but at any rate hc attributes the poverty  of literary  productions    to  the
comparative  poverty  of the  producers, or at any rate to the materialistic
ihfluence of thc almighty dollar.    He
may be right, hut that is not the last
word that can bc said on the subject.
I incline to regard it as only one reason not the reason.    Much goes to
the make-up of a literary genius, especially   in   the   realm   of  imagination.
Temperament  is  thc  first essential,
but inspiration is hardly second to it
in importance and influence.   Inspiration   springs  partly    from  intuition,
partly  from  environment    and  very
largely from tradition.   What arc the
traditions of thc Western world which
would  stimulate    the    poetic fancy?
Where   is   the    environment    whicli
would constitute a  fitting cradle for
the darling of the Rods?   Where are
thc subtle and mystic influences which
appeal  to  a  lofty  mind,  and  which
stimulate thc poet to sing his song
and the philosopher to pen his prose
epic or elegy.   Hawthorne more than
any American author gave promise of
a future for the literature of the New
World, he struck a truer note and
plumbed a profounder depth than any
of his successors, but he lived in a
nobler epoch than any which has
succeeded him. The first glamour
of the great West rested on the land,
the elemental forces of human nature
were struggling for the mastery under conditions which had never before characterised colonisation. A
concentrated and Titanic struggle has
given way to a feverish rout, the
wings of imagination have drooped,
the clutch of the materialistic has
seized the pen of the writer and
mortgaged the brain of the thinker.
Canada is rapidly following suit, if
magnificent  scenery,  gigantic  mountain  ranges   clad   with   verdure   and
capped  with  snow,  primeval  forests
of   unsurpassed   magnitude,   mighty
rivers, placid lakes overhung by blue
skies and suffused with golden light,
could  stimulate the    imagination or
quicken the pulse, then indeed Canada
must long ago have produced a poet
whose songs would have been heard
to  the ends  of the earth.    But no!
Our poets, save the mark, are doing
hack work for immigration and settlement syndicates, and the acme of
their achievement is  to  idealise the
miles of wheat worth 8oc a bushel, or
the sections of lumber worth so much
per acre.    Cannot Capt. Wolley look
a little deeper?    Is there not something beneath the surface?   It is true
that in every golden age of literature
men have written for pay, but it is
also true that in every age there have
been a few who have not defiled their
garments, and today they are walking
in the white light of radiant immortality because they are worthy.   The
Old  World  has    yielded    men who
counted  not  their  life  dear  if  they
might but deliver their message, but
sing their song.    It may have been
only a fragment, still it earned them
a niche in that great temple which is
the goal of every man upon whom is
laid the burden of deliverance.    The
noblest literary work has  ever been
the unpaid or the ill-paid.   The sweetest  song  has  ever  been   written  in
adversity,  and  it  has   not  been  reserved for the twentieth  century to
demonstrate that the advent of financial prosperity has dulled the point of
the pen.   This is by no means to be
taken as an advocacy of starvation or
even poverty, but as a protest against
applying to a judgment of literature
the canons of criticism which may be
justly applicable in another domain.
The  ultra  commercial  spirit  of the
Western World will work a reaction,
the first indication of this is in the
cry already being raised for a simpler
life.    With  an  appreciation    of the
charm of simplicity will come an inspiration which this Continent has yet
lacked  towards    the    expression  of
loftier   ideas   conveyed   in   the  most
exquisite  form.    Then  will  dawn  a
newer  and  a  nobler  epoch  for  the
song singers of the world.    One of
them has seen it coming, it may yet
be distant, but like a mirage the picture  has  appeared  to  his   prophetic
eye as he tells us of a time when
Only the Master shall praise us, and
only the Master shall blame,
And no one shall work for money,
and no one shall work for fame,
But each for the joy of the working.

The members of the Ladies' Musical Club, under whose auspices the
Frieda Stender, Otie Chew and Thilo
Becker concert is to be given at the
to metropolitan critics for catchiness
and sweetness is not excelled in musical comedy. The songs that have
become particularly popular are "You
Look Awfully Good to Father,"
"Drums of the Fore and Aft," "Let's
Take a Trolley," "Clorinda Jackson,"
"Cross Your Heart" and "How'dYou
Like to Be the Umpire."
One of the features of "The Umpire" is a football game in the second act played by twenty-two girls
dressed  in  full  football    togs,   that
BARGAINS
-IN-
Victoria Theatre on the evening of arouses a riot of enthusiasm in every
the 25th, are much encouraged by the
success which thus early in the day
has attended their circulation of subscription lists. At the same time the
disposition of Victorians to support
good art consistently is shown in the
fact that almost every subscription
is for both this concert and the sub-
audience that sees it. The game is
played with as much vim and vigor
as displayed in a real championship
game, and occasionally the players
become so much in earnest that time
must be called to allow the half-backs
to nurse their injuries.
The company is the same as seen
at the Grand Opera House, Chicago,
headed by Fred Mace as the Umpire,
who will be pleasantly remembered
for his funny sandman in "Piff, Paff,
Pouf," seen here last season. Mr.
Mace is assisted by Edith Yerring-
ton, Guelma Baker, Harry Hanlon,
Bradlee Martin, Katherine Burn, Geo.
Damerel, Helena Salinger, Bert
Young, Jessie Huston and others.
There is alos the famous little dancing girls, the "broilers," as a feature
of the chorus of sixty pretty girls.

All the boys and girls, both young
and old, will be pleased to learn that
the attraction at the Victoria Theatre
on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Wednesday matinee next
week will be the ever welcome "Buster Brown."   Of course that prankful
   youngster  will  bring  with  him  his
faithful dog Tige. Between them

The Stender-Becker-Chew tour opens
at the Vancouver Opera House on th .
evening of Friday next, the concert
at the Terminal City being under thc
auspices of the Vancouver Choral

to Victoria on the subsequent Mou •

strongest concert groupings offered

sterling quality.

it by the older patrons ot the theatre,
who invariably make up by far the
greater of its night audiences.
This clever comedy and melange
is conceded to bc one of the brightest
and most laughable entertainments
yet produced and it will be presented
here this season with the added advantage of entirely new scenic dress,
costumes, and electrical effects as well
as new book, music, dramas and specialties. An immense cast is engaged
in its presentation. Among the most
prominent members are Master Helton, "the littlest comedian"; Mamie
Goodrich, Alf, A. Grady, Little Mat-
tie Lockettc, Sue Belle Meade, Edgar
Bixley, Lizzie McCall, Mae Hilton,
Fred Nolan, Alf. Hilton, and others,
including a beauty chorus of forty. A
new feature and one that has been
highly commended is the march of
Buster Brown's Bobby Burns Brigade.   In   this   number   twenty-four

equalled for many months  to come,
as such runs as these are not common even in New York City. Thc
introduction of that much abused and
unfortunate man, the umpire, to thc
stage has been cleverly and successfully accomplished by thc authors,
Messrs. Adams and Hough, having
surrounded him with amusing situations and rich comedy, and providing
a pretty romance that fairly sings its
way through thc piece; set with a
background of music, that according
music of the Seaforth Lances band,
execute in a marvelous manner a most
intricate drill. This feature never
fails to elicit hearty applause.

I am most certainly going to pack
up my trunks and depart for Dogs-
ville.   It is the cleanest, best conducted and most orderly city which I have
yet  come  across.    There  are  good
stores, including a first-class cafe, an
excellent boot emporium and an altogether superior police station.   I am
sorry to say that there is one "bad
man" in residence, who is in the habit
of creating matrimonial disturbances,
but the last time I saw him he was
being  escorted  to  the  gaol  by two
sturdy  guardians  of  the  peace.    In
other words Coin's dogs are without
exception the most wonderful animals
I have ever seen, and the whole turn
is the most remarkable of its kind on
four continents.    All the turns  this
week are above the average, and it
is thc universal opinion that never before has Manager Jamieson been so
fortunate to secure such an array of
talent for one week.   The Ozavs are
good jugglers  and are  at the  same
time amusing.   Mr. Keane's song was
far  better  than  usual.    Onetta,  the
Arabian Queen, kept the house spellbound in her wonderful chair dance,
showing marvellous strength and balance.   Tom Bamtford, the man from
"The   Oxford,"    London,    kept   the
house in roars of laughter with his
songs, his patter and his imitations,
and the moving pictures were quite
on a par with the rest of the entertainment.   For the benefit of thc children, who arc expected to crowd the
theatre on Saturday afternoon, there
will bc two matinees instead of one.

THE EVOLUTION
OF SATAN.
By Arthur Davies.
. It is strange that, in this so-called
enlightened and well-educated twentieth century, the people in a mass
will accept many teachings as fact,
without taking the slightest trouble
to inquire, either into their authenticity, or the process by which they
have become a part and parcel of our
beliefs.
Take, for instance, the subject matter of this article. Whilst it is true
that many thinking men and women
and leading divines have relegated the
subject of Satan, or the Evil One, to
the kingdom of myths, fully 80 per
cent of the people seem to have
neither the time nor the inclination
to think out the matter for themselves, with the result that their lives
are still biassed by an error which
should never have been allowed to
exist to this date. Hence my desire
to throw a little light on the evolution of Satan.
For every belief, whether it be fact
or myth, there is a reason. The reason for the creation of a Satan, or
Evil One, is very simple and easy to
discover.
Right down from the known history of mankind to the present day
it has been part and parcel of human
nature to desire and create a scapegoat; to be able to say, when discovered in any selfish act, "It was not
I," "I could not help myself," "Somebody else did it," or "I was led into
it"; anything, in fact, but acknowledge that the deed was perpetrated
by himself or herself. Let us take
the best known of the records of the
human race—I mean the Bible.
In the word-picture of the fall of
man, which is practically the first
record of human action, Adam is discovered eating the forbidden fruit,
i e., giving way to selfishness. When
confronted with his deed, what is his
defense? Simply, "It was not I; it
was the woman who tempted me."
He at once made the woman a scapegoat. Now let us take Eve; her case
is equally clear; it was the serpent
wdio was thc scapegoat. Right down
the ages in almost every case where
a defense is recorded, the defense
consists of throwing either the whole
or a part of the guilt on some other
party, or scapegoat. This human
feeling was so well recognised by the
Mosaic law that a scapegoat was actually provided as part and parcel of
their religious ceremonies. (See Leviticus, Chap, xvi., verses 8 to 28.)
But why labor this point as far as
the ancients were concerned when,
every day, right in our midst, there
are thousands of examples.
Go into any court of law; read any
criminal action; or let us look into
our own lives; what is the first defense or excuse which naturally flies
to our lips? Simply some statement
to prove that somebody else or something else, i. e., a scapegoat, is the
real cause of the offense. This habit
of providing a scapegoat is so engrained in our nature that anybody
who has studied child life can vouch
for the fact that, without any tuition,
almost every child is naturally ready
to invent a scapegoat for its infant
misdeeds.
Side by side with this weakness in
our nature there is a common-sense
instinct that our defense is surer of
success if the scapegoat cannot be
brought into court and cross-examined. Adam found this out to his
cost—Eve was easily cross-examined.
Hence it arises, that the handiest
scapegoat to use is one which cannot
be made a witness. I do not for a
moment suggest that mankind deliberately set to work to argue out
this process—it naturally follows—
once hc had Riven way to thc weakness of selfishness, the scapegoat is
inevitable and common sense readily
taught him thc advantage of one that
was not get-at-able; hence the invention of the devil, or, as he is
known under his drawing-room cognomen, Satan.
What a grand, brave, and noble invention, and yet it has served, and
few men or women have paused to
reason out its absurdity. There may
be some who fall into thc error of
imagining that  Satan  was an  inven
tion of the Hebrew race acquired by
Christianity during the Evolutionary
period. That is not so—search any
Pagan record and you will find they,
also, had patented this invention, only
in their case—as they had a multiplicity of gods—it was also necessary to have a multiplicity of devils,
or, as they were known in those days,
evil gods. Thc Pagan had the same
natural weakness as the Christian has
today; it was necessary to have a
scapegoat to blame for wrong-doing
on his part. As the Pagans received
Christianity it was natural for them
to coalesce the Christian Satan with
their evil deities. As a matter of
fact, it is quite easy to trace the line-

VICTORIA
age of the present-day Satan back to
his Pagan ancestry. This view is also
evidenced in the pictorial illustrations
of his Satanic majesty; the tail, ears,
and cloven hoof being nothing more
nor less than a Pagan picture, emblematical of one of the grossest and
vilest forms of human selfishness, now
practically extinct..
No thinking man or woman who
takes the trouble to look this subject
squarely in the face, to ascertain for
himself or herself the. true reason for
the existence of this myth, can fail to
discover that, although it has doubtless served a beneficial purpose in the
centuries during which man's environment was of a restricted character,
in these days that purpose would
seem to be ended; and the time has
come when men and women should
realise that an action, once committed, cannot be erased, and the old
excuse that "I was tempted of Satan"
is merely childish evasion. What is
vaguely termed sin is simply selfishness; it belongs to the ego, and the
sooner we Christians recognise this
fact, so much the sooner will this
world become a cleaner and a better
place to live in.

GREENWOOD,
"How much do you want for your First
Street lot?"
Said a real estate man to me.
I looked as If I were lost In thought,
And  then replied: "Let's see:
Black's sold last year at fifty the foot;
So, without any algebra, that should put
My figures at sixty now, I guess,
Or a trifle more, or a trifle less."
I was anxious to sell at fifty straight
Or I might have dropped down to forty-
eight.
Oh, yes, I'm a bit of a bluff, It's true;
What sort of a bluff are you?
"And what do you know about railroad
rates?" ■
The man with a bald brow said.
"For you have traveled through all the
States
And have heard a good deal and read."
"The railroad lines," I wisely replied,
"Are the lines with which our trade is
tied,
And  the  wretches  who  take  these  rebates set
New knots in the bonds under which we
fret."
But now, I remember, I once rode free
And forgot tliat the road rebated me.
Oh, yes, I'm a bit of a bluff, it's true;
How much of a bluff are you?
"So you   went   to   hear   Siegfried   and
found it fine?"
Said a classical friend one day.
"I'm sure your impressions accord with
mine,
But tell me your own terse way."
And "Oh, the tone-color beats belief,"
And oh, "dynamics," and oh, "motif!"
And "chiar-oscuro, how finely abstruse!"
And la-la-la-la, and oh, well, what's the
use?
For all tliat I understood in the play
Was that  dippy,  old dragon of papier-
mache.
Oh. yes, I'm a bit of a bluff, It's true;
What sort of a bluff are you?
"Should the senior Senator be returned?"
Said  a  newspaper man  to  me.
"He's as rotten a rascal as ever burned."
I cried.    "May I quote?" asked he.
"Oh, no." I replied; "if you're going to
quote,
Just remark that his friends regret to
note
That tlie exigencies of the party case
Indicate that he shouldn't re-enter the
race."
For the Senator sometime may possibly
be
Interviewed by a newspaper man about
me!
Oil,   none  of  these  cases   may  quite  fit
you,
But what sort of a bluff ARE you?

VANCOUVER NOTES.
That money is plentiful for investment and speculation in Vancouver
is pretty well apparent judging from
the numerous company flotations,
land, mineral and townsite propositions being offered the public through
the medium of the daily press. Among
the "industrial" list is the Vancouver-
Prince Rupert Meat Company that is
being promoted by Patrick Donnelly,
to acquire the business now carried
on by P. J. Russell & Co. at Vancouver and New Westminster and to
engage in the meat business in all its
branches, both wholesale and retail,
and to contract for the supplying of
meat to constructing railroads. The
company is incorporated for $100,000
in 1,000 shares of $100 each. Mr.
Donnelly, who was the promoter of
the Securities Corporation of British
Columbia, is meeting with success,
the shares being largely taken by
local business men and stockmen.
The North American Timber and
Development Co., Ltd., as a going
concern, owning 24,500 acres of timber lands, estimated to contain about
750,000,000 feet, and two operating
logging camps, a sawmill, etc., is offering its shares at $100. The National Finance Co. is securing capital through private channels, principally from shareholders in the B.
C. Permanent Loan and Savings Co.
It has already opened for business on
Hastings street . Two brokerage
firms are handling Okanagan fruit
plots. The Bulkley Syndicate reports
a splendid sale of lots in tl.ieir town-
site, the feature of the week being
the disposal of a large number in
Victoria  by  Norman   Norcross,   the
energetic manager. A Chicago firm
is soliciting subscriptions for stock in
a Cobalt mine and a new firm has located in Vancouver to promote the
sale of shares in an oil and gas company operating in the Edmonton district. Judging from reports, all seem
to be getting a share of the public's
money. Local realty too is moving
all the time and the 200 odd real estate offices lose no opportunity to
"boost" the game aolng. In one day
the firm of Cavanagh & Holden put
through three deals aggregating a
turn-over of $89,000, and the purchasers were in all cases local men. Corbet & Donald placed a block of lots
in Kitsalano on the market Monday
morning and the entire block was disposed before the noon hour. These
are simply samples showing the activity in the local realty movement,
and to them must be added sales of
farm lands, timber limits and commercial undertakings that are being
made daily.
Stock Breeders' Fair.
Interest is already being manifested
in the annual spring fair of horses,
cattle, sheep, etc., to be held in New
Westminster on March 20, 21 and 22
under the auspices of the British Columbia Stock Breeders' Association.
The principal object of the fair is to
encourage the farmers and stock
breeders in the better conditioning
of fat stock for the market, the improvement in the strains and the giving of lectures by experts on the best
type of animals for this purpose.
Notes and Gossip.
W. T. Watson, proprietor of the
Vancouver Model, Machine and Cycle
Works, has just finished a working
model of a new style of Ferris wheel
which he has invented. He leaves
shortly for Seattle, where he will interest capital with a view to having
the same put on the market as one
of the big amusement features of the
Alaska-Pacific-Seattle Exposition.
Through the agency of Rowland
Brittain, patent attorney of this city,
Dr. F. W. Morris of Victoria has
been granted a Canadian patent on an
improved process for the manufacture
of carbonate of lead from metallic
lead. The process is expected to
revolutionize the white lead manufacturing industry.

The B. C.
Permanent;
The ninth annuai meeting of thc
shareholders was held at the Head
Office of the Company, 321 Cambie
Street, Vancouver, B.C., on Wednesday, the 27th day of February, 1907,
at 3 o'clock p.m. The President, Mr.
Thos. T. Langlois, occupied the chair,
and the Secretary, Mr. R. H. Duke,
acted as secretary of the meeting.
The   following   shareholders   were
present: N. Shakespeare, W. H. Bone,
J. B. McCallum and Jas. Willott, of
Victoria; R. Rees, H. A. Eastman and
E. Goulet, of New Westminster; A.

land others of Vancouver.
The Treasurer read the report of
lthe Directors and the financial state-
|ment for the year 1906.
The President then said:
Before moving the adoption of the
Ireport as read, I wish to say that it
lis a pleasure to attend this ninth an-
[nual meeting under such favorable cir-
jcumstances. The year has been a
[notable one in two important particulars:
1st—the increase of Reserve Fund
Ifrom $50,000 to $150,000, brings the
Ireserve up to 50 per cent, of the per-
Imanent paid-up capital, and places our
•company in the Old Line Loan Com-
|pany class.
2nd—the    increase    of    permanent
paid-up capital to $300,000, which, together with reserve and surplus funds,
nake a total of almost one-half million dollars  of permanent  non-withdrawable money, giving our company
proportion of permanent assets to
deposits, debentures and terminating
■Hocks combined, just about equal to
Ihat of any of the oldest and largest
[oan companies of Canada.
Another important event in the his-
[ory of the Company took place during the year, viz., the actual maturing of several series of instalment
Ihares, the    maturity   period having
been reached in every case within
the time originally estimated. A large
percentage of shareholders, whose
stock matured, have taken permanent
stock in preference to cash.
The recent provincial elections
which have resulted in the return of
the Premier, the Hon. Richard McBride, together with a strong majority in the House, will, I believe, go
a long way towards securing and
holding the confidence of capitalists
in other countries, who have learned
something of the immense undeveloped natural resources of this Province, but have heretofore hesitated
to invest their capital because of the
unsettled political conditions which
prevailed.
All signs of the time point to a
continuance of the present unprecedented era of prosperity, at least, in
so far as this rich Province is concerned.
The neighboring provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
still continue to grow in a remarkable
manner and at the present rate of
progress will soon contain several
large cities and will have a volume
of business which will be a surprise
to the rest of the world.
The city of Vancouver still continues to grow at a remarkable rate;
the population is estimated at being
about seven thousand in excess of a
year ago. The building permits for
the year amount to $
against $2,617,000, for the previous
year.
Arrangements have been made for
the addition of several new steamers
to the shipping trade of this port, including a new line to Mexico which
is to start almost immediately.
The lumber interests are enjoying
wonderful prosperity. The demand
for British Columbia lumber and
shingles is enormous, and although a
considerable number of big mills have
been erected the saw-mills of the Province seem unable to keep up to the
demand.
Thc city of Victoria is now attracting a great deal of attention,
both as a tourits centre and as an
ideal city in which to live. A large

MARCH.
I am the last of winter's sting;
1 am the earlier month of spring.
I give the touch of warmer rays;
And lengthen out with light the days.
I lift from earth Its cloak of white,

I bring the birds that sing all back,
And flowers soon follow ln my track.
My wailing winds so full of strife,
Start slumbering nature into life.

Chambhuddy Ram or Breeze, an unscrupulous lawyer, locates the pearl
in England, but in a weak moment
gives it to Lady Patricia Vane, and
critical   person   could  not   find  fault  wh(m  he  ertnrnj  tQ  Ceylon without
with the work of thc two former, the
least critical person could hardly appreciate thc latter,    ft is difficult to
state  any  grounds  upon  which   the
inclusion of Frieda Slender could be
justified  in  a  concert  company  with
any pretensions to the artistic. Whatever an artist is, she is not, and no
greater  contrast  could  bc  conceived
than  that presented by her  soulless
and unsympathetic rendition of classical songs, and the intensely artistic
and finished performance of the violinist and the pianist.    Otic Chew is
a marvel as a violinist, measured by
any  recognised  standard.    Her  tone
is  full  and  sound,  her  execution  is
facile and brilliant, and she has temperament.    Of Thilo Becker it would
bc difficult lo speak too highly.    He
may never become what is known as
a popular pianist, but for grace, elegance,    profound     intelligence,    and
sympathetic expression, hc challenges
comparison with the truly great performers,    lie is nnt a virtuoso, and
indeed is the very antipodes of supli
world-renowned   pianists   as   Ruben-
stein and  Paderewski, but he is distinguished by a remarkable temperament which is even more mystic than
musical,  if  such  a  criticism  may  bc
made without  depreciating his value
as an artist.    At his best he recalls
memories of Charles Halle, and with
ripened experience will probably develop along thc same lines and attain,
at any  rale  a  measure, of the same
popularity.   It was an outrage on the
musical  susceptibilities of Victorians
to associate with two such incomparable artists a singer of the style and
class of Frieda Stender.   If one could
forget all thc other qualifications necessary in an acceptable singer, it must
at   least  be  admitted  that  temperament  and   sympathy    are   essential.
Frieda   Stender  is   absolutely  devoid
of both.   A scientific genius like Edison could readily produce a mechanical toy which would furnish an exact
counterpart   of  this  vocalist.    Compared with thc playing of Otie Chew
and Thilo Becker her singing was as
the production of a pianola compared
with the manipulation of a piano oy
a master of the art.   I have no desire
to   discourage   the   admirable   intentions of the Victoria Ladies' Musical
Society,   nor   thc   legitimate   aspirations of C. H. Gibbons as impressario,
but in thc interests of art and of a
long-suffering public, I am bound to
protect against the inclusion of such
singers as Frieda Stender in any programme which  seeks the support of
musical   people.    There  arc  at  least
half a dozen more satisfactory singers
in Victoria.   T would rather hear Mrs.
R. H. Pooley, Mrs. Robin Dunsmuir,
Mrs.  llcrschmer, or Miss  Lugrin at
any time.   They may not possess the
lung power of the lady in  question,
nor could they compete with her in
rendering   patriotic     songs,     but   in
everything which   is  dainty,  musical
and artistic, they would at least be
more acceptable to persons who arc
blessed—or  cursed—'with  an   car.    I
thc precious jewel, he is told that he
must produce both the pearl and
Nanoya within twenty-four hours or
lose his head.
fn comic opera fashion he discovers
the girl, and by similar means the
lawyer finds that she is wearing the
very black pearl he is seeking for.
The High Commissioner decides that
Boohamba Ram is entitled to his
bride, a decision that it is the province of the second act to set aside,
for 'she is eventually given to her
lover, Vereker.
lt may be said here that Genevieve
Finlay played and sang "Nanoya"
when "The Cingalee" received its first
production in this country at Daly's
Theatre, New York; Hallyn Mostyn
alos appeared as "Boohamba"; and
Melville Stewart likewise had a prominent part, William Norris enacting
the comedy role of the lawyer, now
allotted to same Collins.
Maybe it was owing to thc enervating nature of the Ceylon climate or
the blizzard that was raging outside
that caused the slow exits and entrances last night 'at the Walker Theatre, there being an apparent lassitude in the general business throughout the entire evening, requiring all
thc energies of the cnergtic comedian,
Mr. Collins, the topical songs of Mr.
Mostyn, thc eccentric fun of Harold
Vizard, and the dash and vim of Elgie
Bowen, as well as her singing to
awaken the audience to that pitch of
hilarious delight which found os frequent expression in "A Country Girl"
in thc earlier part of the week, "The
Cingalee" is in part spectacular, the
scenery, stage settings and costumes
being truly Oriental. Some elegant
dancing was also exhibited, with a
couple of musicianly written choral
ensembles closing each of the two
acts that won instant appreciation.
Chief among thc vocal successes
was the singing of Genevieve Finlay
as the Ceylon maid "Nanoya," the
song "Sloe Eyes'' being beautifully
sung, and also llic ducts with Mr.
Stewart, who enacted "Vereker" the
tea planter.
Comic ducts were heard from Miss
Bowen, and Mr. Collins, who respectively played "Peggy" and "Breeze thc
lawyer." Mr. Collins also whispered
"The Crocodile," and displayed his
agility as an acrobat in another comic
interlude, much to the satisfaction of
the folks in the galleries.
But thc humorous song success of
thc performance was "Boohamba's"
topical hit, "There Isn't Much More
to Say," enhanced as it was by a telling bass voice, thc audience would
hardly allow him to leave thc stage.
Notwithstanding a few shortcomings "The Cingalee" caught the crowd
and makes a capital foil to the superior and more refined singing and
humor of thc strictly English, and
thoroughly charming "Country Girl."

gusting feature in this week's programme; that is the turn contributed
by Polly & Ethel Hazel. A drunken
woman is not amusing at any time,
and her appearance on the stage as
a character is in the worst possible
taste. Kelly & Reno, who style themselves "comedy acrobats," are merely
harmless; their turn is what might be
called "fair to middling." There are
only two things worth seeing in the
New Grand this week; one is the
moving pictures, and the other the
dancing act given by Collins & Haw-
ley. These latter are certainly good,
and I commiserate with them for being forced to travel in the company
of such a gang of barn-stormers as the
rest of the company undoubtedly is.

Picadilly Clothing is a product of good materials, good tailoring and good intentions. Its purpose is to serve well the
needs of those who buy it.
We find it profitable to devote more thought to the making
of our clothing than tc the selling of it. The selling of things
in which good intentions play so large a part, in large measure, takes care of itself.
An inspection of our goods at your clothier's will convince
you of the merits of "Piccadilly Brand," the best fitting clothing made in Canada.

PROVINCIAL NOTES.
Condolences.
The Week offers its sincere condolences at Mr. J. B. Bennett, the Liberal candidate for Comox, at the
recent election on the loss of his
wife. In the stress of a political campaign things are said on both sides
which would best be left unsaid. It
is well that they should be forgotten
as soon as the campaign is over. The
Week hopes that the fact that it
antagonized Mr. Bennett strongly on
political grounds will not render its
expression of sympathy unacceptable.
The Pioneers' Annual.
Though late in arriving on the exchange table of The Week the Phoenix Pioneer's fourth annual number
is nevertheless welcome. Editor Wil-
sox has done himself proud in the
turning out of a 64-page publication
replete with information and statistics of the wonderful "Boundless
Boundary." The book is a credit to
the publisher; it contains many fine
engravings and a colored may of the
Phoenix camp.
Have Opened Again.
Messrs. Haywood Brothers, well
known as former proprietors of the
Commercial Hotel, in the "Terminal
City," have opened up a brokerage
office at 452 Seymour street, under
the name of Haywood, Bros. & Co.,
and intend to deal in realty, mining
and timber claims. The Messrs.
Haywood's wide acquaintanceship
throughout British Columbia should
be of material assistance in forming
a splendid connection in their new
sphere.
An Expert's View.
It is rather interesting in view of
the upward movement in Granby to
give the views of George Walker,
the copper expert, whose letter was
responsible for the last rise: "Gran
by makes its copper at a cost of about
&A cents per lb. Its production last
year is understood to have been about
20,000,000 pounds of copper. A large
increase in its output was prevented
by the work of remodelling its furnaces. Its smeltign capacity was increased 40 per cent, to 50 per cent.
Granby's ores yield only about 24
pounds of copper and $1.40 in gold
and silver, but gross operating costs
are slightly less than $3 per ton of
ore treated. It is probable that Granby will eventually increase its smelting capacity to 7,500 tons of ore daily.
Such a production would give it net
earnings of $33 per share on a 15-cent
copper market, and make its stock an
investment at $300 per share."
Public Lectures.
A series of public lectures is announced for delivery in Columbian
College at New Westminster during
the months of March and April. The
series will be opened by Principal
Sipprell, who will lecture on The
Theory of Sight Sensations, and Our
Ideas of Space. Perhaps no better
subject could be chosen for the presentation of the aims and methods of
psychological study to a popular audience.   The principal's gifts of exposi-

The Kamloops Musical Society presented W. S. Gilbert's pretty extravaganza at the K. M. & A. A. Hall on
Tuesday evening to a large and appreciative audience. The production,
while naturally lacking some of the
smoothness which is only to be obtained by constant rehearsal, was decidedly above the average of amateur
attempts a rift reflects great credit
upon the members in general, and
upon J. R. M. Calveart, the musical

conductor, and Bradshaw Brown, the
stage manager of the society, in particular. The chorus work was effective throughout and gave evidence of
careful training by the conductor and
skilful drilling at the hands of the
stage manager.
The principals too had given much
attention to their parts, which were,
as were also the interpolated musical
numbers, very well rendered. Mrs.
Albrighton as the landlady of the
Three Pigeons filled acceptably the
part of the witch perturbed hostess
Mi.ss Pearse, as the stately dame of
842 summers, who was responsible
for the erratic impulses of the victims of her punishments made to fit
the crime, belied her astonishing
number of years but made up in the
dignity what she lacked in the appearance of age.
Miss Lily Pearse as the sprightly
Pipette acted with a nerve and abandon which is rare in an amateur.
Mr. Fisher as Sergeant Klooque
was the swashbuckilng hussar from
the tip of his shako to the toe of his
jack-boots. It would have been difficult to recognise Mr. Tyrer as the
miserly Boomblehardt so thoroughly
did he enter into the spirit of his
part.
Mr. Appelbe as Peter rather overdid his part but was undoubtedly responsible for the fun of the performance.
Mr. Waikden as Lord of the Manor
was not up to his usual form and
voice but in spite of that he filled the
part acceptably. Bradshaw Brown as
Jan, a villager, showed his familiarity
with stake business.
Amongst the interpolated musical
numbers, though all were good, special mention must be made of the
madrigal quartette and the Hiring
Chorus, both of which were exceedingly well rendered.
The costumes and stage accessories
which would have been a credit to
any production, were designed and
prepared  specially  for  the  perform-

A Few Stray Notes.
In consequence of the interference with the earth currents by the
arc-lights, our wireless notes have arrived in such a condition of entanglement that we are unable to transcribe
them for the press this week.

The Week is in receipt of a lengthy
communication on the subject of
Lot's wife and why she looked back,
but as there is a press of live news
for our column we regret we are unable to find space for it.
The Week is given to understand
that in all the churches of Victoria
the doxology will be sung tomorrow
night, in token of devout thankfulness
to "whatever powers there bc" that
thc subject of Seymour Narrows has
been conspicuous by its absence from
the columns of the daily press during
the past week.
rt    *     *
Several correspondents have asked
whether it is usual for a newspaper to
depreciate thc contributions of its own
staff in the shape of special articles.
The answer is: probably not, if they
are paid for.

Landseer once painted a picture entitled " Dignity and Impudence,"
which represented a tiny skye-terrier
barking at a mastiff. In the Colonist
of yesterday the editor says: "The
Colonist never claims nor wants to be
in the full confidence of any political
leaders because it always wishes to
preserve its right of freedom of action
011 every question which arises which
it could not do, IF IT WERE CONSULTED UPON SUBJECTS OF
GOVERNMENT POLICY."
