THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1907
The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
Anti-
Climax.
Considerable amusement
has been aroused in Victoria circles by a most
admirable skit which appeared in the Times a week ago.   It was
[ji contribution of a well-known local Merry critic to the poetical discussion of the
jrisit of the English Journalists to the
wast.    First came Harold Begbie with
is 'Ballad of the English Tongue." This
,?as followed the next day. in the columns
f the same paper by a reply by Clive-
j'hillips-Wolley, dedicated in a weak moment to Harold Begbie.   Like all Captain
•volley's works the verses were good, and
be sentiment unexceptional, but why re-
|>ond at all ? and above all why to Harold
begbie ? However, these are matters which
mcem only the Imperial poet of the Pa-
fic Coast and the erudite editor who pub-
ihed the verses.   Most people, however,
ee that the local critic, who shall be
ameless, scored heavily when he followed
th  an exquisite  parody  dedicated  to
[the bards." In form, in metre, in expres-
ron, and in sentiment his verses were
Imply exquisite, worthy of Barry Pain
his best, and touching -off the weak
dints of "the bards" with a most delight-
|il persiflage.   The three poems are care-
jilly preserved in the scrap-book of The
7eek, where they will furnish food for reaction and for keen enjoyment for years
come.
Innis at
hncouver.
The   splendid   game   of
lawn tennis may not appeal to a very large section of the community,
It it possesses features which render it
[valuable as a means of recreation, and
fognetic as a social attraction.   No one
luld have witnessed the strenuous encoun-
J's of the week at the Denman Street
bunds and looked upon tlie large and
lihionable   crowds  which   have  flocked
Ither day after clay, without realizing
Jit an important social function as well
an athletic contest was in progress.
Irthing could be prettier than the spec-
]Je of twenty young people of both sexes
uaged in healthy and graceful exercise,
[il a thousand gnyly dressed onlookers
flowing every point of the game and at
[ervals relaxing into friendly and so-
[ble converse.    Lawn tennis is growing
popularity because of these features,
l.s not only a sport which can be enjoyed
lially by men and women but is essen-
llly a veteran's game, and in addition
Irishes the finest opportunity for mak-
acquaintances and cementing friend-
|p.    In this guise it is a great human-
and renders a distinct service to the
Immunity.   Vancouver should be proud
lthe tournament which has been carried
Iso successfully during tlie week, and is
J concluded at the time of writing.   All
If foresight, kindly consideration, and
|d work could effect for the success of
tournament and the comfort of the
Ists lias been done by the indefatigable
letary, Mr. Cave-Brown-Cave, and the
Irteous and ever popular umpire, Mr.
lery.     Their   arrangements   on   the
funds  were  admirable,  in  fact  it  is
Ibtful if so much trouble has ever been
pn to ensure the comfort of the players
ai. opportunity to carry on the con
test without interference. The only weak
spot was that the platform was not half
large enough for the crowds that flocked
to see the concluding game. Another year
it might to advantage be constructed in
tiers, with a double side, and carried all
across the spare court. There are some
things of which it may be said that distance lends enchantment to the gaze, but
this is distinctly not true of tennis, and
the spectators should be grouped as near
to the players as possible. Neither is it
necessary to have galvanized wire screens
along the sides of the court, they are too
reminiscent of baseball, and sadly trouble
the eyesight, but these are only minor defects upon which there may easily be a
difference of opinion. Of the players too
much cannot be said. Miss Hotchkiss and
Miss Ryan are stars, and it must have
been a liberal education to the local lady
players to watch their style. Of Tyler,
Payne and Schwengers, who shall say
which is really the best. They are all in
the same class, they have all won championships, and they are all so near together that the win depends just on whose
"day out" it is. Tyler for brilliancy,
Payne for steadiness, Schwengers for versatility. Of the second rate players it is
also impossible to speak too highly because they give promise of future performances whieh will in a few seasons
place them in the front rank. This is
true of McDougall, and Rhodes in particular. Their play was favourably commented upon at the Victoria Tournament
a few weeks ago, and both have done still
better at Vancouver. McDougall in particular distinguished himself by playing
brilliantly in the doubles with Major Williams, indeed the reaching of the semifinals by this pair was one of the most
meritorious performances in the tournament. To all true lovers of amateur sport
it must be a matter of hearty congratulation that Vancouver is taking such a prominent position in connection with this
delightful game, which, while it may not
appeal to the thousands who rush to witness lacrosse and baseball, still appeals to
a most influential section of the community, and is free from most of the blemishes
which have crept into other games.
A Wireless
Continent.
The telegraphers strike
has brought home to
every man on the continent, a realization of the
extent to which tlie world is dependent
upon the most advanced appliances of
modern civilization. Fifty or sixty years
ago the lack of a telegraph wire would
have occasioned comparatively little inconvenience. As long as the world had to get
on without this means of communication
it got on very well, but today it so binds
together the units of civilization especially
in the commercial world, that its absence
is sorely felt and continued deprivation
would mean the paralyzing of business. Of
the merits of the dispute which led to so
widespread and serious a strike, little is
known, but as in many great movements
it is a repetition of the parable of the grain
of mustard seed over again, a petty
squabble in a telegraph office in Los Angeles, lias within one short week laid idle
the swiftest and most indispensible means
of communication for half a continent,
Two facts stand out prominently, the first
is that telegraphers are underpaid, that the
responsible and onerous character of their
work entitles them to higher remuneration,
and that public opinion will force their
employers to grant it. The second is that
the widespread character of the present
movement and the determined attitude of
the strikers who have demonstrated their
ability to promptly paralyze an indispen-
sible branch of the public service has
brought appreciably nearer the day when
this and all other similar problems will
be -solved by Government ownership.
Shortage
Of Fuel.
The Week makes no
apology for continually
reverting to the fuel
question, whatever may
be said to the contrary by the coal companies who are anxious to allay public
uneasiness as to their ability to supply the
demand, or by transportation companies
equally anxious to defend themselves from
a charge of "car-shortage," or lack of
transportation facilities, the fact remains
that there will be a lack of fuel next
winter. This is determined by two considerations, the first is that the production
of coal during the year 1907 will, under
the most favourable circumstances, not exceed that of 1906. The other is that
there are at least one hundred thousand
more people in the West, and possibly one
hundred and fifty thousand, and that in
addition there is an increase in the demand
for fuel for industrial purposes. The only
other factor which could have diminished
the seriousness of these two conditions
would have been a decrease in the tonnage
exported, instead of which it remains practically at the same figure; the net result
therefore is that for more people there will
be less coal. Last winter there was much
suffering and at one time the Northwest
was within measurable distance of a calamity, so acute did the crisis become that
not only did the starving people take coal
from the railway cars but in several places
in Saskatchewan they demolished temporary buildings and flat cars in order to
build fires. In less than three months the
rigours of winter will have seized the
prairie; the only possible way of providing against a reptition of last winter's experiences and possibly of something worse,
is to accumulate stocks at every vantage
point along the railways of the Northwest.
This is not being done to any considerable
extent. With respect to British Columbia,
thanks to climatic conditions, tliere is
little danger of starvation, but great inconvenience and some suffering would undoubtedly follow any accentuation of the
conditions which prevailed here for about
a month last winter. But for the firm
and sagacious policy of Mr. Dunsmuir
even this favoured country would have
made a much closer acquaintance with
cold, and in any other hands fuel would
have been dearer if it had not been scarcer.
The Week speaking from a knowledge of
the situation resulting from careful enquiry, strongly advises householders to lay
in their winter stock early, indeed it is
none too soon to begin doing so now.
The comments of tho
Topsy daily press if they aecur-
Turveydom. atcl.y reflect public opin
ion in connection with the
escape of Bill Minor furnish an interesting
and unique illustration of "topsy turvey-
dom." When the C. P. R. train was held
up near Mission Junction, there was a
general howl, at the rude blow which had

been struck at the security and inviolability of railway travel in Canada. So indignant were the public that the greatest pressure was brought to bear on the Federal
and Provincial Governments as well as on
the C. P. R. to offer large rewards for the
arrest of the marauders and to put in motion every bit of machinery within control of the law. The men were caught,
tried, convicted, sentenced and imprisoned.
Everyone felt that justice had been done,
breathed a sigh of relief, and wiped tbe
stain off the C. P. R. escutcheon. Very
shortly afterwards, however, it became
known to certain officials that influences
were at work, and strings were being
pulled for the purpose of securing the
liberation, first of all of Colquhoun on the
plea that he was more sinned against than
sinning. The information went on to say
that his release would be followed by that
of Bill Miner, if indeed tlie veteran criminal did not secure his liberty first. This
information was given to The Week by
a very high authority, and commented on
in our editorial columns of June 29. Our
comment was directed to tho unwise actions of the Society of which Mr. Archibald is Agent, ami which is far too much
under political control resulting in the
exercise of unmerited leniency in many
cases. Whether tlie escape of Bill Miner
and his confreres was connived at may
never bc known, but it is a matter of reasonable conjecture, that something more
than mere chance enabled them to get away
so easily. Their escape and its method
tallies exactly with the information given
to The Week, viz., that Bill Miner was
playing the "penitent" game, and had so
worked on the sympathies of some of the
officials and of Mr. Archibald or his society, that he was considered to be a-
changed character, fully reconciled to his
lot, and one with respect to whom it would
bc perfectly safe to relax the sterner rules
of discipline. This seems to have been
exactly his "lay," and it has worked like
a charm. His good behaviour completely
hoodwinked those in authority who weakly
yielded to his request for out-door employment. The very request coming from a
man of his type should have been a warning, but he got what he wanted and shortly
after got away. Now the press generally
seems to favour his escape, and one paper
goes the length of comparing him with
Robin Hood and declaring that there is
such a halo of romance about him that he
lias become a popular idol and that people
will connive at his security. This is a
remarkable "volte face," it would be interesting to analyze it, but probably the
result would amount to this, that having
once been trapped and incarcerated, if he
had wit enough to get away, and his captors little wit enough to let him, he deserves liis liberty. This is a dangerous
view to take if it could be regarded seriously, probably it represents as much as anything the conviction that the prison authorities deserve to be cheated for their negligence, but The Week has no hesitation in
saying that there is more behind this than
appears on the surface, and that the
strings whicli secured Miner's release are
those which dragged Brothier out of the
prison cell. Some day the people of Canada will demand an investigation into
the interference with the police authorities
by politicians who are "friends of the Government," when that investigation is honestly made there will be some startling
revelations. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1907.

About Your Curtains
Are your curtains and portiere correct in design and artistic effect? Of even more importance than
the carpets are the curtains and portieres. Just take a look around yourself, and see if this isn't so.
They stand up clearly before you—and your visitors—and impress themselves upon you much more than
do the carpets and rugs. Isn't it, therefore, imperative that you exercise careful judgment in the selection

BEAUTIFUL PARISIAN MODELS—The Week, by special arrangement with the celegrated photographer, Henri Manuel, of Paris, is
enabled to present weekly, to its readers, the newest creations in
fashion, posed specially by famous Parisian models. Unlike the illustrations in fashion magazines, these reproductions are from life. The
above summer ccstume of black and whi.e striped mircge silk is from
the Maison Martial Armand, Paris. The skirt is finished by three
folds of the silk cut the wrong way. The little Japanese Eton is
fitted over a white mull slip, the frills of which show at neck and
elbows.
The First Spadeful.
|lt is contempt that casts the first
adeful in the grave of love.—Harold
lacGrath  in  "Half a  Rogue"  (Guy
Id  Bird).
Miriam screwed herself up on to a
chair. "It was pink once," she said.
—Chicago  Tribune.
Byron.
iByron the man is always present in
J'ron the poet. It is impossible to
[derstand the one without knowing
|mething of the other.—Charles
lhibley in "Poems of Byron" (Jack).
How to Enjoy a Garden.

Ke nobody's advice, and lay it out

Oxford Revisited.
A man who goes back to Oxford
after a lapse of years is like a man
who, full of tenderness and affection,
goes to see his old nurse, and finds
that she is deaf, and blind, and paralysed. When my mind begins to fail
me, I shall once more revisit Oxford (and shall enjoy it, no doubt).
But not, oh not, in the meantime."—
Saturday  Review.
The Reason Why.
The Tall Man—"Why do you call
that sorrel horse of yours 'The

The Short Man—"He's no good;
he can't do anything himself, and he's
always kicking the other horses."—

Pink Once.
Iliriam was entertaining the clergy-
li until her mother returned from

Jioth, white sugar almond.
IThank  you,   my   little  girl,"   said
clergyman, much  pleased at the
Lntion.   "Thank you."
The Harm of Tubes.
People who travel by tube can see
nothing, and very soon it will become
a habit to see nothing, and then a
great part of the pleasure of life will
go.—Sphere.

Compulsory Games.
Many a weak boy owes his health
to compulsory games. I have an instance before me now. A weakly,
freckled, untidy, careless individual,
with a weak voice, is now a stalwart
among boys; he is a scholar, too, has
overcome his dislike of games, has
smartened up, and owns a deep bass
voice."—Fry's   Magazine.
The Girls of Today.
A ladylike swashbuckler is very

But the seventh arrives. And things
do happen for which a repartee is
hardly an adequate answer.—Daily

thinking that he was joking.    'The
hand cannot run away.'
"Sir John Rowell continued grave-
ly:
" 'The chain is necessary. It always wants to go.'
"I glanced quickly at his face, asking myself if he were crazy or if it
was a bad joke; but his face remained
impenetrable, calm and kind. I spoke
of other things, and admired the guns.
I also noticed that three loaded revolvers were at hand, as if the man
lived in constant fear of attack.
"I returned to his house several
times. Then I went there no longer.
Every one had grown accustomed to
his presence; he had become a matter
of indifference to them all.
"A whole year rolled by. Finally,
one morning toward the end of November, my servant awakened me by
announcing that Sir John Rowell had
been murdered during the night.
"Half an hour later, I entered the
Englishman's house wjth the commis-
saire central and the captain of the
police. The valet, distracted and disconsolate, was crying in front of the
door. I suspected this man at first,
hut he was innocent. They never
found the guilty one.
"On entering Sir John's drawing-
room, the first thing I saw was the
corpse stretched out upon its back in
the middle of the floor. The vest
was torn, a sleeve pulled out and
hanging—all indicated that a terrible
struggle had taken place.
"The Englishman had been
strangled to death! His face, black
and swollen, was frightful, and expressed an awful terror. He held
something between his clenched teeth;
and his neck, which was pierced with
five holes as if made with iron points,
was covered with blood.
"A doctor joined us. He examined
the prints of the fingers in the flesh
for a long time, then pronounced these
strange words:
'"One might say that he had been
strangled by a skeleton.'
"A shiver ran down my back and
I glanced at the wall where the horrible flayed hand was formerly confined. It was no longer there, and
the chain hung, broken. Then I bent
down beside the dead, and found in
the tightly shut mouth one of the
fingers of the missing hand, cut, or
rather, sawed off by the teeth to the
second joint.
"Then they proceeded with their
examination, but discovered nothing.
No door had been forced, no window;
no article of furniture disturbed. The
two watch-dogs had not awakened.
"Here is, in a few words, the deposition of the servant:
"For a month, his master had seemed disturbed. He had received many
letters, burned as many. He had often taken a horsewhip, and, in anger
that seemed almost insanity, had
struck the dried hand which had been
sealed to the wall, and carried off,
one knows not how, at the very moment of the crime. He went to bed
very late, and locked himself in carefully. He always had his grearms
at hand. Often during the night he
spoke aloud, as if he were quarreling with some one. This night, as
it happened, he had made no sound;
and it was only when he came in to
open the window, that the servant
had found Sir John murdered. He
suspected no one.

"As 'cute as a jailer" used to be

lantern. The prisoner turned scornfully to the Bench—"Do not, your

National.
A little boy was reading in his
Scottish history an account of the
battle of Bannockburn. He read as
follows: "And when the English saw
the new army on the hill behind, their
spirits became damped." The teacher
asked the boy what was meant by
"damping their spirits." The boy, not
comprehending the meaning, simply
answered "Pittin' water in their whiskey."
Dad (severely)—And look here,
Ethel, you mustn't encourage that

It's disgraceful. What does, your

what it is, but I think I'll remember
it if you sing."
The good-natured husband complied, and the charming wife said: "I

Too Cheap.
Recently a very suspicious countryman went to London to see the
sights. Coming to the National Gallery, he was amazed to find that the
admission cost nothing. He mounted
the steps and entered. "Your umbrella, sir," said a uniformed official,
extending his hand. The countryman shoved his tongue out, and turned downstairs again. "I knowed there

The Rev. Sam Jones once preached

like a nigger. You has a white skin;
but. thank God, you has a black

From time immemorial as the
springtime of life recedes, and the far
horizon draws near, men and women
alike have been impressed by the
transitoriness of mundane affairs; and
have been inclined to look at the present through pessimistic spectacles,
and to speak of "the good old times."
It needs no sage to tell us that
"the fashion of this world changeth,"
but it does require much wisdom and
sound judgment to discriminate between essentials and non-essentials,
and in doing so to guage correctly
how much of the panorama constantly passing before our eyes is only
faslvon,  and  how  much  permanent.
Most close observers find serious
food for reflection in certain changes
which have taken place in respect of
social observance during the last few
years. I have more than once commented upon the lamentable decadence which prevails today in connection with the training of children, and
the admitted degeneracy of their manners and behaviour, especially on this
Continent. My view has always been
that while this is in part due to defective educational methods, the
greater portion of the blame rests
with the parents, who have unduly
relaxed the reins of discipline and
neglected their children, either
through stress of business or love of
pleasure and ease. I do not think
that any honest observer of social
conditions will deny the truth of this
indictment.
Circumstances have recently directed my attention to a phase of social
life which goes a long way to explain why children arc neglected and
why they grow up with ideas which
militate against the finer virtues of
childhood, and render the task of
controlling them as they approach
adolescence, infinitely harder. I refer lo the lack of sympathy, amounting frequently to estrangement, between husband and wife.
If the home is to preserve its
sacredness, and to remain the bulwark
it has always been in Christian countries against the inroads of iniquity
of every kind, it must continue to
derive its strength from the moral influence nf the home makers. No one
is so quick to detect the slightest rift
in those cordial and magnetic relations which subsist between happy
parents, as their children. It may
be possible to cover up conduct which
will not hear inspection, but from the
unclouded eyes of innocency it is
impossible to hide the indefinable influence which springs from misdoing.
If the spring be poisoned at the fountain head, the virus will be absorbed
by those who drink thereat.
It is not necessary to consult the
disgraceful records of the American
divorce Courts to arrive at the conclusion that marriage is not what it
used to be; at any rate for hundreds
of thousands, the sacredness of its
obligations possesses only an academic significance. It is one of the
most remarkable signs of the times
that the spread of the divorce habit
has been contemporaneous with the
"emancipation of woman." While the
United States gets most of the blame
for this wholesale desecration of the
implied permanence of the marriage
vow, it is only fair to note that
though in a lesser degree, yet no less
certainly the vice is extending
throughout Christendom. Divorces
are largely on the increase in Canada;
and British Columbia, which retains
within its own Courts the right to
grant dispensations of relief in this
direction, chronicles more divorces
with its population of a quarter of a
million, than the rest of Canada with
its six millions. Similarly in spite of
the determined opposition of the
churches, the number of decrees
granted in England show a tremendous advance the last few years.
The sober thinker asks himself the
reason for this, and concludes that
the result is not due solely to any
one cause. The one most commonly
cited is the rapid acquisition of wealth
which furnishes countless opportunities for indulgence in those dissipations which lead to the divorce court.
No sounder reason could be assigned,
and as long as human nature is weak,
which means to the end of the chapter, wealth will furnish the avenue
to folly. But all marital unhappiness
is not due to this cause. There is a
widespread and growing indifference
or worse, between husbands and
wives, who are not encumbered with
this world's goods, and circumstances
force me to the conclusion that much
if not most of this is due to the lack
of judgment displayed in forming
matrimonial alliances.
It is not so many years since no
self-respecting wife would be found
abroad, I mean at social functions or
entertainments without her husband.
His absence would have been a matter of notice and comment, and if
such absence became the rule, rather
than the exception, it would be difficult for the lady to retain her reputation. Nowadays it is quite a common occurence for married ladies,
young and otherwise, to go to theatre
parties, supper parties, dances and
even motor parties without their husbands, and under the escort of bachelors. Further it is quite customary
for popular hostesses in considering
the personnel of their party, to make
the selection upon well recognized
lines which will furnish the opportunity to continue acquaintances of this
kind. Any reasonable man knows the
end thereof. However specious the
excuses made, human nature is so
constituted that it is impossible for
this kind of relationship to continue
without working infinite harm. It may
stop short of the divorce Court, but
that is a matter of comparative unimportance, if husband and wife have
become estranged and seeds of discord sown, which can never be eradicated.
I must confess that I do not know
from what quarter enlightenment on
this vital subject is to come to the
young girls of the present generation.
Happily there are thousands of homes
where perfect harmony reigns, and
where such social methods as I have
outlined arc undreamt of. These
homes are maintaining the standard
of purity upon which the stability
of the Empire as well as the nobility
of human character depends. They
furnish an object lesson which should
be carefully studied by all who contemplate married life. The best that
this world has to offer, is yet to be
found in the union of two lives, not
only devoted, but consecrated to each
other. There is no substitute for this,
any other offering is of the spurious
in exchange for the genuine. I know
that material considerations are by
prudent parents and guardians claimed
to form a necessary part of matrimonial arrangements. In this progressive age, and especially in this
prosperous country, such an argument
is worthless. I am old fashioned
enough to believe and to maintain
that affection is the only basis for
happy marriage, that every other consideration, except that of personal
character, can safely be ignored; and
that if this rule were followed, it
would solve the problem of marital
differences of any but a superficial
character, and would lead to a revolution in the lives of those who find
the bond onerous, because it implies
restraint.
LITERARY NOTES.
Lady Randolph Churchill.
It is announced that Lady Randolph Churchill (Mrs. Cornwallis
West) has written a volume of reminiscences, which will be published
in this country by Edward Arnold,
and in America by the Century Company. A pious hope is expressed that
Mrs. Cornwallis West will not permit
herself to be influenced by that evil
genius of reminiscence writers—discretion.
Mr. Watts-Dunton on Cecil Rhodes.
Mr. Watts-Dunton has published
with Mr. Henry Frowde a pamphlet
apropos of the Rhodes Memorial at
Oxford entitled, "The Work of Cecil
Rhodes: A Sonnet Sequence." The
introduction is exceedingly interesting. Mr. Watts-Dunton says: "Whatever may be said of England's decadence as a physical force among the
other great physical forces of Europe,
her unique destiny as the great inspiring moral force of the world is
becoming more and more apparent
every day. And why? Because,
thanks to men of the Rhodes type,
she is mistress of entire continents
in the temperate zone." Of Lord Rose-
bery's speech he says: "I must not
trust myself to give full expression to
my admiration of it. Some of the
things he said indeed were so touching—they were so beautiful and so
noble—that to criticize them even for
praise would seem like impertinence.
Never was Wordsworth's profound
saying that 'What comes from the
heart goes to the heart,' illustrated
with more power, more pathos. It
is impossible to read them without
feeling a tremor at the heart. If
sueh utterances as these should not
succeed in making Englishmen realize what they lost in Rhodes, nothing will, I am sure." Mr. Watts-
Dunton's view is that Rhodes pined
for man's opinion, and that this cost
him his life. Many of us will not
accept these judgments without great
qualification, but I do not feel inclined to discuss the character of
Rhodes again. All will take pleasure
in Mr. Watts-Dunton's versus.

Westward Hoi
The second number of Westward
Ho!, the Western Canadian magazine,
published at Vancouver, has reached
us and is fully up to, if not higher
than, the high standard attained by
thc first number. It contains a goodly number of interesting articles by
able writers, all of which will well
repay the reader's perusal. One article
in particular, "British Columbia Fruit
Industry," by Maxwell Smith, is of
especial interest to residents of this
section of the Province. We would
commend the magazine to everyone
having the interest of the Province
at heart.—The Okanagan.
"Westward Ho!" for August is a
very interesting number and is representative of the West and British
Columbia in spirit. The leading article is a splendidly illustrated article
on the International Yacht Race, a
series of photographic studies of British Columbia scenery arc artistic, and
the articles on various subjects of
public interest and the numerous
short stories are all by Western
writers. "Westward Ho!" is published in Vancouver and aims to be representative of the Far West.—Thc
Mount Pleasant Advocate.
The Art of
Ivory Carving
is  well  illustrated in the charming specimens  met with  in  our
Noveltyware Department.    A very choice assortment of exquisit
samples of Oriental handicraft.   For instance:
Serviette Rings, Jewel Cases, Ring Boxes, Photo
Frames, Card Cases, Powder Boxes and Paper Knives.
Also some very skilfully carved Figures and Totem
Poles, so desirable, not only as art curiosities, but in
legendary and mythological sense	
Owing to the great slaughter of wild elephants, the world's stock
of genuine ivory is growing less. In a few years' time the price
will be double its present figure.

THE STAGE $
Among the coming early attrac-
ions that bear the seal of novelty
ie offering, "The Comedy of Errors"
s presented by Louis James promises
3 be one of the most unique, for in
ddition to reviving a comedy that
as been always considered the most
ircical   conceit   that   has   emanated
iom the gigantic brain of that mas-
:r of dramatists, Shakespeare, he
irther contributes a surprise by an-
ouncing that he will play the dual
Die of "The Two Dromios," a feat-
re that has not for years been
onsummated by any other individual star.
J Mr. James with his characteristic
loroughness has surrounded himself
ith a company that bears the ear-
arks of exceptional merit for at
e head of the column the name of
rederick Paulding stands out most
inspicuously. Mr. Paulding, while
stranger here, has not been in this
ction of the country for several
ars, he is a very excellent actor and
ould be a splendid foil to Mr. James.
Miss Aphie James has been advanc-
to the position of leading lady, and
her success this season equals the
ipression made last season, her ad-
ncement has been a wise one.

sang; I kndw it left a pleasing recollection in  my mind.
MOMUS.
The New Grand.
The above theatre well sustained
its reputation this week. The star
feature has been the "Fremont Zouaves." Unless I am very much mistaken I saw them about three years
ago at The Empire Music Hall in
London. They are wonderfuly good.
Al Jolson puts up a good turn as a
blackface. He is comic and up-to-
date. Donovan & Arnold scored a
well-deserved success in their singing and talking act. Smith and Wal-
tone are high above the average. Miss
Dane as an imitationist goes down
well. Norman Stanley in "Napanee"
is great. It is the best illustrated
song heard in Victoria during the
past two years with the possible exception of "Arrah Wannah." I am
not quite sure which I like best. The
Moving Pictures are good; so is the
Orchestra.
Next week's bill will comprise eight
numbers, including Billy Link and
Willette Charters, with their Ho-Bo-
Kan brigade, a blackface turn that
will bc remembered as the feature
of the opening bill at the New Grand
over a year ago. George Barnes and
Irene West, refined comedy singers
and expert wooden shoe dancers, introducing Mr. Barnes' latest composition "If there weren't any women
in the World." Duffy, Sawtelle &
Duffy, in a little play with moral entitled "Papa's Sweetheart"ffi Al Burton, whitcfacc monologist; Miss Dorothy Earl, dainty sing comedienne;
Norman Stanley, in illustrated song;
New Moving Pictures, "If you had a
wife like this," and Prof. Nagel's
orchestra.
Westward Hoi
The August number of the "Westward Ho!" magazine is to hand; the
articles are very bright and interesting. Among them is a paper by Maxwell Smith on the fruit industry in
B. C, which is illustrated. We quote
from his paper: "There is little need
for this Province to spend money in
trying to induce immigrants from
other countries to come here and
settle. The best immigration work
that British Columbia can do is to
develop the fruit-growing industry,
and to send large quantities of first-
class fruit, properly grown, harvested
and packed, and ship it into the great
grain country east of the Rocky moun
tains. This will judiciously advertise
the Province and bring our own
people here as soon as they become
tired of the more rigorous climate of
the  prairies.—Armstrong  Advertisee.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1907.
Sporting
Comment
The lovers of the Canadian National
game will be given an opportunity
this afternoon to see what should be
a first class exhibition of lacrosse. The
contending teams will be Victoria and
New Westminster and as both have
made a good showing this season a
hard game should result. This will
be the first real test of the locals
since they were organized and it will
largely depend on this game what
action will be taken next year. The
youngsters have proved faithful to
their work and since the commencement of the season they have attended practice regularly and are now in
condition to play the game of their
lives and should they so happen to
lose it will not be for the fact that
they did not have any practice. The
sporting public are called on to assist
the team by their presence at the
game. Although the youngsters are
purely amateur, it always requires a
certain amount of cash to keep the
club in the necessities of the game
and without financial assistance the
game would soon go to the wall. In
arranging the game with New Westminster, the team has gone to considerable expense and unless there is
a good crowd, the players will have
to meet this obligation themselves.
Having a good lacrosse team in the
city is a first class advertisement and
the players are doing the city a considerable amount of good by playing
the game and to have to pay the expenses of the visiting team out of
their own pockets is not as it should
be, and the public in general are requested to turn out in large number
and by their presence encourage the
youngsters who are endeavoring to
uphold the honor of the Capital City
of the Province on the lacrosse field.
It has always been maintained by
The Week that there is sufficient material in Victoria to make a first class
lacrosse team and it is expected that
the result of the match this afternoon will show that the contention
was right. In playing the game this
afternoon, the local exponents should
remember that it is not possible to
win all the time and should the result of the game be a defeat for the
locals the defeat should not discourage them, but only make them more
aggressive on the occasion of the next
game. The Week wishes the Victoria
team the best of luck in this afternoon's match and hopes a victory
will rest on the shoulders of the Capital City players. The game will be
played at Oak Bay and will commence sharp at 3 o'clock.
to make the trip, but unless the team
is a representative one it would be
foolish to attempt the journey. The
Week is entirely in accord with the
proposal and will assist in any manner possible to have the local club
represented, but it would be a hard
knock for Victoria if a team was sent
and received an unmerciful beating.
By this it is not to be understood
that The Week is not in favor of
the local team going up against a sure
defeat. If the trip is to be made there
is no time to be lost in arranging particulars. A team cannot be got together in a day and aside from this
much practice will have to be indulged in and if gone about in a proper manner it is more than likely
that a team which would be a credit
to Victoria could be secured.
It is with great pleasure that we
learn that the Association football
championship of Canada will be decided in British Columbia next year.
The action of the "Peoples" in presenting the championship shield has
had a material benefit on the game in
Canada and nowhere more than in
British Columbia. It is to be regretted that no effort was made to
send a team from British Columbia to
Winnipeg to compete for the shield
this year, but the time of the season
was decidedly against any such project and had a British Columbia team
been sent it is without doubt that
they would have been greatly interfered with by the heat. This cannot
bc said of British Columbia, however,
and it is hoped that the competition
will have the effect of bringing the
Caledonians of Calgary to British Columbia to defend their title. No decision as to where the game will be
played has been arrived at, but a
strong committee has been appointed
to take charge of the competitions and
it is safe to say that their selection
will meet with the approval of the
majority of thc enthusiasts of the
Province.
The Victoria Rugby Footfall Club
has received an invitation to visit
Berkley during the month of November. This would bc an ideal outing
for the team, but unless a first class
aggregation could bc secured it would
be absolute folly to undertake thc trip.
It is all very well securing a team
The New Westminster lacrosse
team again showed their opponents
from Vancouver that they could play
the game by handing out a defeat to
the Terminal City twelve last Saturday. The Vancouverites were confident of their ability to win but before the game was over they had
changed their minds entirely. It will
be some days yet before the championship is removed from the banks
of the Fraser River.
According to the press dispatches
the New Westminster team intends
to enter the ranks of professionalism.
It is stated that a game has been
arranged to be played during the
New Westminster fair with the Te-
cumseh team of Toronto. This team
is composed of out and out professionals and for the champions of B.
C. to play them would put them in
the same class. It is either a case
of the New Westminsters entering
professional ranks with their eyes
open or it is a huge advertising
scheme on the part of the fair authorities. It is thought, however, that
the team will take the jump and next
year will witness the introduction of
professionalism into lacrosse in British Columbia. As a matter of fact
it is well known that both the Vancouver and New Westminster players
received a cash gratuity at the end
of the season, but it is impossible to
prove it, and until this is possible
they can continue to play amateur.
It will be much better to introduce
professionalism into British Columbia
than to allow the present conditions
to exist, but it is hoped that it will
be several years before the step is
finally taken.
It will be with extreme gratification to all cricketers to note the reappearance of Lew York on the field.
Saturday last was the first time this
season that he has been in the game
and that he has not lost his cunning
can easily be seen by glancing at the
score. Lew has been under the doctor's care, but now that he is able
to get in the game again, it is hoped
that he will be able to remain. He
will be a tower of strength to the
Victoria team at the cricket week in
Vancouver.
The cricket week in Vancouver
commences on Monday and it will be
the greatest gathering of cricketers
that has ever taken place in British
Columbia. Entries have been received from seven teams and if all
put in an appearance it will give the
players all the games they care for.
The Victoria team will be strongly
represented and will make a determined effort to hold thc title which
they won last year. The showing
made last year was an extremely
good one and if thc reputation of the
club is to be maintained there will
have to be some good cricketing.
It is very probable that the Oak Bay
team of this city will also be represented and it would bc gratifying indeed if first and second place came to
this city.
The Victoria Cricket Club met and
defeated thc Garrison at Work Point
last Saturday in a very easy manner.
The locals had no difficulty in scoring and it was with pleasure that we
saw the veteran of the'Victoria team
make his 64 runs.
This afternoon will witness a match
between the Victoria Club and the
Oak Bay eleven at the Jubilee Hospital grounds,
Sire,
Yq*u- 6Ai liren.
Mho
and mkh Mem prow
The lovers of true sport in this city
are a long-suffering lot, but the limit
was reached last Saturday when what
was supposed to be an automobile
race meet was held at the Driving
Park. It was a disgrace to sport to
call it by that name. There was absolutely no semblance of a race, but
still the promoters got the money
and were satisfied. A few weeks ago
Barney Oldfield was served with a
writ accusing him of securing money
by false pretences. If it was possible
to get after him on this score it would
have been much easier to do so to
the promoters of the show at the
Driving Park, for it is a certainty that
the show given by Oldfield could not
have been any worse than that last
Saturday. It was a hold-up pure and
simple and the promoters were lucky
in getting as much as they did out
of the fiasco. It is hoped that the
next time an outside concern attempts
to arrange races in Victoria that they
will meet with the fate they deserve.

A Sharp-Witted Barrister.
The rigid observance of English
rules in South Carolina Courts, and
a neglect of the same on the part of
Mr. Petigru, a barrister well known
in his day, gave rise to the following
passage;—
"Mr. Petigru," said the Judge, "you
have on a light coat. You can't
speak."
"May it please the bench," said the
barrister, "I conform strictly to the
law. Let me illustrate. The law
says the barrister shall wear a black
gown and coat, and your Honour
thinks that means a black coat?"
"Yes," said the Judge.
"Well, the law also says the sheriff
shall wear a cocked hat and sword.
Docs your Honour hold that the
sword must be cocked as well as the
hat?"
He was permitted to go on.

f A Lady's Letter *
By  BABETTE.
Dear Madge:
A ponderous magazine writer has
been pleading for the old maid. Why
should the old maid require to be
pleaded for any more than the bache-
or?   The bachelor may sing:
'I live alone and I must own
That I enjoy it more that way;
I like my life without a wife,
No matter what the world may
say."
Why shouldn't the old maid be al
owed to like her life "that way" too?
It is a serious thing being married,"
emarked an old-time parent to his
laughter. "Yes, dad," replied she,
but it's more serious not being mar-
ied." Those were the days when
larriage was a woman's only "pro-
ession." If she missed that, she was
ractically done for. But all the pro-
issions are open to women now.
here are lady doctors and lady
wyers, and there is nothing to hinder
woman being a blacksmith, or a
lough-"man"; or a station-"master"
she is so inclined and can find the
tuation.
Hence the twentieth century woman
oes not necessarily regard herself as
failure if she misses the engage-
ent ring and the hoop of gold which
akes her a wife. Of course the old
Jtion still survives in some quarters,
[any people still appear to think
tat a woman has no right to remain
ngle if she so prefers. Indeed a
nd of stigma is frequently put upon
e woman who has no inclination
-wards matrimony; and the dread of
:ing called an old maid often forces
:r into an unsuitable and unhappy
ion. But why should a woman any
ore than a man be urged by social
andate into marriage when she has
desire that way, or at least has
t found the man to whom her judg-
ent or her affections incline? Sure-
not to marry is better than to
arry badly; and if it were not for
e fuss that the generality of woman-
rid makes over that event—as if it
re the one really essential business
life—there would be fewer foolish
ions of the kind.
!It should be everywhere recognized
|at a young woman shows supreme
od sense and a fine independence
character in refusing to marry un-
s all the conditions are satisfactory
id she has abundant reason to be
isfied with her decision when she
ks around and sees the ill-assorted
pie who find the marriage institu-
n a daily yoke that grows no easier
;h the wearing.   Suppose, then, the
quent chatterers about the  rights
women take this matter in hand,
p the "old maid" sneer, and affirm
wisdom of not marrying at all?
ot  long ago  an  English  clergy-
n declared that one debt the world
ed was to its old maids, who were
most   unselfish   and   the   least-
tied possessions the world had. He
perfectly right.   What did Char-
|te   Broute,   who   so   narrowly   es-
ed being an old maid herself say?
speculate  much  on  the  existence
unmarried   and   never-to-be-mar-
women, and I have got to the
int of considering that there is no
re respectable   character   on this
[th than an unmarried woman who
es her   own   way   through life
tly,   persevcringly,   without   sup-
t of husband or brother, and who
ins in her possession a well-regu-
■d mind,    a    disposition   to enjoy
pie pleasures, a sympathy for the
'erings  of others,  and  a willing-
to assist as far as her means
nd."
hen,  some  few years  ago,  Mr.
crt H!chens depicted a ball-scene
play in which all the ladies, with
ushing   effrontery,   pursued   the
Itlemen with    entreaties    to take
down to supper, he was told
the  critics  that  he   exaggerated,
that this kind of young person
not to be found in good society.
Mr. Hichens   knew   his world,
while the critics were oblivious, apparently, of modern social tendencies.
The lady who "hunts" a partner, and
invites the elusive male to tread the
mazy valse with her, or to feed her
with chicken and champagne, is today
to be found in Victoria as well as in
Mr. Hichen's society world. She is,
it must be owned, a somewhat disquieting spectacle. To those persons
who have passed the young and curly
stage she gives the sensation that they
have been dug up from some previous
geological stratum, when women in
Society still possessed some dignity
and self-respect, and did not pursue
their quarry with unrelenting vigour,
but waited to be asked to dance or
to sup. The modern society "hunter"
may possess every social and civic
virtue but to the casual observer
she seems amazingly "unsexed." For
surely the conventional, artificial life
of the drawing-room—which corresponds to nothing in the world of actual life—is based on the elegant and
amiable fallacy that man is the gallant, pursuing shepherd, and woman
the charming, reluctant and acquiescent nymph. Reverse this theory and
you get a spectacle which is more
like a pantomime than a pastoral.
In the Green-Room—"Here's a
riddle for you: When is an actress not
an actress?"
"When she's a star."
"Guess again."
"Give it up."
"Nine times out of ten."
Mother—"Tommy, what did I say
I'do to you if you touched that jam
again?"
Tommy—"Why, it's funny, ma, that
you should forget, too. I'm blest if
I can remember!"
"Bobby, I'm surprised. This note
from your schoolmaster says you're
the last boy in the class of twenty-
five.
"Well, I could be worse."
"I don't see how."
"It might have been a bigger class."

There are a few verses in the Bible
with which I wish to head my weekly "spiel." I think, however, that it
would be somewhat advisable to quote
them and also to give chapter and
verse, because my experience has
been that the majority of people do
not know their Bible at all, and that
those who do can't locate quotations:
"They   that    go    down   to    sea    in
ships, that do business in great
waters;
Those  men  see  the works  of  the
Lord, and his    wonders    in the
deep.
For He commandeth, and raiseth up
the stormy wind, which lifteth up
the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they
go  down  again  to  the  depths;
their  soul  is melted because of
trouble;
They reel to and fro like a drunken
man, and are at their wit's end;
Then they cry unto the Lord . . ."
Psalms 107; Versus 23, 24, 25,
26, 27, 28.
I saw one of these vessels which
carry men down to the sea to do business, quite lately. It would be invidious to say which ship I saw, because I understand they are all much
alike. If necessary, however, I can
name the vessel. I found that sealers have to live under conditions
which a well educated hog would not
tolerate. In a space about half the
size of my own office, with a tenth
part of the same ventilation eighteen
men sleep. It is true that they don't
sleep all at the same time, because
some are on watch. Ask yourselves
whether this is right. On the boat I
visited there is absolutely no sanitary
accommodation. Laws of Nature
which in Victoria and Vancouver have
to be fulfilled in the saloons, owing
to the pig-headedness of their respective councils, are fulfilled in public from the sides of the ship. Is
this right?
We all know that there is money
to be made in sealing. We have some
idea of what an ordinary seal-skin
: costs. I am not a Socialist; up to
i the present I have never believed in
I Trades Unions, but I do think it a
scandal that such a state of affairs
! should   exist   in   Western   Canada.
JUST A FEW
OF THE LATEST
That's   all;   it's   now   "up   to   my
readers."
I saw the other week that my pet
complaint had not only been voiced
by some other person in The Colonist,
but actually endorsed by its editor.
I refer to the question of noise. It
seems to me more scandalous every
morning that hooters, whistles, etc.,
should be allowed to disturb people.
The steam engine was made for man,
not vice versa. The noise to be heard
in Victoria at seven and eight every
morning is enough to make every
visitor feel that he will take the next
boat home, and every resident curse
the day he ever settled in the town.
Who is the better for it? Does it
make a workman's heart glow with
joy to hear a shrieking whistle? Does
it help him to get up in time to have
a whistle blown at the time he should
be at the works? If so, well and
good; I can then endure hardship for
the benefit of others. But I don't
believe it. My own conviction is
that hooters, whistles and other abominations of like ilk are blown simply
and solely because the prime agents
are sore at having to get up so early
in the morning. And that's not fair.
There was an excellent picnic at
Goldstream last Sunday. It was given
by members of the No. 3 Company,
5th Regiment. It was a great success. One of the most popular features was the race between Mr. R. P.
Clarke and Major Hibben. In the
first heat a tie was called; in the second the former was victor. But what
I want to know is what happaned to
the ten-gallon keg of beer that left
with the last rig?
The Mayor and Council are to be
congratulated on the increased pressure of water. This is noticeable
everywhere.
As a lounger, pure and simple, I
would like to point out to Victorians
who are in possession of private
houses that there is an almost phenomenal demand for single rooms. In
some cases breakfast is demanded, in
other cases no meals are asked for.
Rooms are at a premium. There
must be many people living in Victoria who could let rooms; it is true
that it would not mean very much
money, but an extra $8.00 a month
with only the trouble of making a
bed is worth considering. There are
many house-holders in town who
have no idea of the difficulty which
strangers have in finding rooms. The
thing is worth looking into. A company who would take a block of
house-keeping rooms with a few
single sleeping rooms would make
money. There was a great talk of
the old Vernon being thus converted.
It has fallen through. It is not an
atom of good advertising Victoria as
a residential town if Victorians cannot put up their visitors. It is true
that as a rule a man can get a room
at a residential hotel at about $2.50
a day and upwards. Where is the
man going to say who wants to live
here and go out for his day's work,
and take his meals with him? True,
such houses are to be found, but they

Only the day before yesterday I
went round town with a man whom
I had met many months ago; he did
not know the town well and wanted
advice as to rooming. He had
money, he also had a good job in
town. I tried four places where the
accommodation was just exactly what
he wanted, and hc could not get a
room.
The Colonist is perfectly welcome
to say that a paper which "runs down
its own town" is worthy of punishment. To my mind a paper which
