THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 1908
One Dollar Per Annum
Senator   McDonald   thinks
Moss Backs.     \m lms a grievance and has
been advertising it to the
Colonist.    Senator McDonald is a man
full of years and honors, enjoying the respect of the community in whicli he has
ived for so long. Senator McDonald could
in no sense of the term be correctly designated a moss back, and yet he has deliber-
itely chosen to take offence on the supposi-
;ion that it might have been intended to
tpply to him.   In other words he has fallen into the error of fitting the cap which
pe was not intended to wear.    The Week
frith the best of intentions took up the
judgels in defence of Victoria when a Van-
iouver philistine declared that it was a
lity of moss backs, and made use of the
pithet in the most opprobrious manner,
.he Week tried to do what no other paper
ias tried, to demonstrate that the term
boss back need not of necessity have an
Ipprobrious meaning.    But Senator McDonald althought a diligent student of The
Veek, is a Scotchman and consequently is
uite unable to appreciate a joke, or even
acetious writing such as is by common
onsent the privilege of a weekly journal,
■/hich depends for its patronage not on the
ry as dust retailing of daily news, but
n the periodical   discussion   of  current
opics.     The   particular   phrase   which
■oused the ire of the worthy Senator ran
s follows:   'Victoria has some moss backs
ut they are being  quietly   laid  away."
lenator McDonald construes this into dis-
espect for honorable old age and unfor-
nnately his protest falls into the ancient
rror of thanking God that he is not as
iher men,  and particularly not as the
_ditor of The Week, and members of the
>rogressive Party, which he disavows and
radically pronounces "Anathema."    If
enator McDonald had invested in Funk &
■/agnail's slang dictionary he would have
anted that moss back means one who is
nprogressive, wedded to old ideas, and
nwilling to move with the times, or to
se a more English and everyday defini-
011, a human fossil.   But surely Senator
IcDonald does not belong to this class,
nd should not for a moment have been,
uilty of falling into the error of suppos-
ig that such a suggestion was intended,
'he moss backs of Victoria are moss backs
ot necessarily by reason of age or sex, as
videnced by the correspondence columns
f the Colonist, but by reason of their ultra
onservative stick in the mud policy. They
re men who own property which they are
nwilling to improve themselves and are
nwilling to place on thc market and cubic  other   men to improve.     They are
non who own vacant lots in important
loroughfares, they are men on whose land
ld shacks and the accumulated debris of
ecked buildings are allowed to lie year
11 and year out.   They are men who pre-
irve, no doubt as a relic of the fifties and
ie sixties, green spots in the centre of
usiness blocks,  ancl refuse  all offers to
urchase because of sentimental reasons,
r possibly, horrid suggestion, because real
ftate in Victoria may be worth more some
y than it is now.    Once more, moss
icks are those who believe that what did
n* their grandfathers will do very well
ir us, and that what did for Victoria in
ie fifties should be good enough to-day.
hey greet every new-comer with a stony
are, they frown down every stranger as
parvenu.   If they had their way they
ould allow thistles to grow in the business
reets.   They would stick to the good old-
shioned plank sidewalks, and they would
impel citizens to drink Elk Lake gruel
>r the next fifty as they have done for the
st many vears.    Senator McDonald is
I
EDITORIAL
not one of these, although advancing in
years, he continues to serve the community
in which he has lived so long, and like
Lord Strathcona, who although nearly
ninety possesses none of the elements of
the moss back, has determined to round up
a long and honorable career with worthy
service. In view of this The Week extremely regrets that Senator McDonald
should have misconstrued its intention,
which was simply to defend Victoria, and
to say a word for the saving features of
moss backism. The Week regrets that Senator McDonald did not see the point of its
observations, and he is less progressive
than The Week believes him to be if he
does not recognize that there are still a few
moss backs in Victoria whose pessimism
is its greatest bane.
Across the
Divide.
Since the last issue of The
Week two well known Victorians have crossed the
great divide, and A. S. Par-
well and George Weiler will be seen no
more in their accustomed haunts. Both
were men of note, although of very different occupations. George Weiler was a fine
specimen of the hard working, successful
business man, with keen commercial instincts, well balanced by broad generous
sympathies, a man of few words but one
who knew his mind and was not afraid to
speak it. Withal a man who recogzized
that business is not all in life, and found
time whilst accumulating a fortune to cultivate a hobby, and thus keep fresh and
green his memory with men who love a
true sportsman. A. S. Farwell was a much
older man and by many was considered a
crank, but they who knew him recognized
his worth, and had found out that beneath
a somewhat abrupt and rugged manner he
concealed a kindly heart whicli prompted
him to many generous deeds. He was a
man of the strictest integrity, of good
judgment and absolutely inflexible where
right and wrong were concerned. Few
more fearless men could be found in the
West. Although not rich he was of independent means, led a simple life ancl
valued his personal independence above
everything. He was intensely loyal to the
throne and to the British constitution, and
few men were better worth consulting when
any question of conduct or ethics were
concerned. Although for many years a resident of Victoria, he was well known
throughout the Kootenays, where he blazed
many a trail, and wherever he was known,
he was respected and trusted. Peace be
to his .ashes! may British Columbia never
lack man of the calibre of A. S. Farwell.
In September next Victoria
Notable will be honored by the pre-
Visitors. sence of probably the most
notable influential Association which has ever visited the Pacific
Coast. The Canadian Mining Institute
ancl members of the Federated Institute of
Mining Engineers and the Iron ancl Steel
Institute will be here to hold a business
session and to attend a reception in the
Parliament Buildings, and to visit some
of the mining properties on Vancouver Island. Mr. E. Jacobs, the local Secretary,
has the arrangements well in hand, and in
conjunction with an influential committee
is working hard to ensure tlie success of
the gathering. The Week appeals to the
public to do all within tlieir power to further the great interest which must be
aroused by the visit of representatives of
these kindred associations. The agricultural and other resources of Vancouver Island have been well advertised and exploited, the mineral resources have received
less attention, probably because they appeal to a smaller clientele. This is a great
opportunity to interest the most influential
men in our country and its possibilities.
The very foremost Mining Engineers and
Iron and Steel Masters will be here. The
AVeek is in receipt of communications from
men who have been in the front ranks of
the mining profession for many years, intimating their intention to be here in September. Victoria has very properly paid
considerable attention to conventions and
societies of various kinds, but this is a
unique opportunity to do honor to men
who are deserving of honor because of their
eminence and who at the same time are
in a position to return the compliment iu
a manner which will be most gratifying
and advantageous to British Columbians.
The Liberal press announce
Coming that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
West, coming West.     No  doubt
he has heard of the Pacific
Coast, of its mild ancl genial climate, ancl
is coming for the benefit of his health.   It
is further probable that he desires to see
for himself the land of promise, of which
his faithful servitors have told him so
much.   He may have resolved to find out
for himself what truth there is in the report that the supplies for the Grand Trunk
Pacific are being purchased in American
cities, and transported in American boats.
He may have heard through the whispering of some small bird, or possibly through
having paid a visit to the Library in the
Parliament   Buildings   at   Ottawa   and
looked up a copy of The Week, that the
operations of the Grand Trunk Pacific at
the Pacific Coast are fearful and wonderful, ancl devised for the purpose of lulling
an expectant electorate.   But be the object
of his visit what it may, it is quite certain
that it is not in connection with Federal
politics or an impending election.      Sir
Wilfrid Laurier would not lay himself
open to the suspicion of taking a Western
trip at the public expense for party purposes, it is only the much maligned and
politic Premier of British Columbia who
could be guilty of such conduct.   So when
Sir Wilfrid conies, we will all prepare to
welcome him, and to aid him in his research without any "arrierc pense," except
to do honor to a distinguished statesman,
and from the time he steps into Victoria
until he steps out of it again, he will not
hear one word of politics, not even from
the Victoria Times.    So mote it be.
For thc last few weeks the
The Olympic daily papers have been full
Games. of items dealing  with   the
Olympic games, and thanks
to really excellent reports in the Victoria
daily papers people have been able to
keep track of thc events. Now that the
programme is pretty nearly complete it is
possible to appraise the value of the cele
bration both from an athletic and a politic
standpoint. The performance, whilst excellent, has not on the whole been remarkable although the best talent from all parts
of the world has been attracted. Few records have been broken, and not one has
approached some of the old records such
as W. G. George's mile in -1-12 2-5. If
the weather had beeu more favorable and
the track in better condition it is likely
that faster times would have been made in
most of the races, but even allowing for
this, the Olympic Games have not materially advanced the athletic standard in any
department, and in some instances they
have notoriously failed to reach it. It is
doubtful whether the cause of athletics is
not better served by the ordinary International meetings, which are far easier to
manage and which have for many years
attracted the best talent. It seems quite
certain that the project will result in heavy
financial loss, as at no time was the attendance in any degree commensurate with the
expenditure, indeed as a drawing card the
Olympic Games did not compare with the
ordinary Saturday football match, where
fifty thousand is a common attendance
even in the Provinces. The financial aspect of the question will probably determine the matter in future. A word must
be said as to the unsportsmanlike conduct
of the American athletes and their manager, who have again confirmed the universal impression that they know nothing of
the true spirit of sport. The final conclusion is that if the Olympic Games are
to result in arousing International susceptibilities and disturbing public sentiment
to say nothing of engendering bitterness
ancl recrimination, the game is not worth
tho candle.
The illustrious men who
The Quebec gathered at the ancient City
Tercentenary. 0f Quebec to fittingly celebrate the most momentus
event in Canadian history, have discharged
the high and honorable functions to which
they were appointed, ancl have left for
their destinations. .Now that the magnificent pageant is a thing of tlie past, it is
time to appraise its value and significance
from a national and Imperial standpoint.
It has meant much for Canada in concentrating the attention of the Empire upon
the rugged heights of Quebec the meeting
place of two of the greatest military heroes
in the annals uf the Empire. This is a reminder both to Great Britain and to
Greater Britain, that if Canada is a new
country measured from the date of Confederation, it is an old one, rich in the
lore of pioneer clays ami pioneer work.
The celebration is the commemoration of
thc fact that Canada was the battleground
upon which thc fate of the New World
was decided. These reflections will give
added value to Canada and Canadian affairs in the eyes of the world. The added
impressiveness of the royal presence and
that of the distinguished General who accompanied the Prince of Wales, fitly
symbolize the permanence of the Constitutional ties which bind Canada to the
Mother Country. There are many features
of thc celebration well worthy of comment,
but these appear to be the salient points,
and they cannot be too firmly impressed
upon the mind of the rising generation or
too deeply cherished by those who have
the moulding of public opinion. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST i, 1908.
At The Street   •)
Corner
I
By THB LOUNGER
I am not sure that public interest
in Victoria has not shifted somewhat from water to dogs, at any rare
it is divided. I notice with reference
to the former that Reeve Oliver is
more than holding his own in the
joust with the Vietoria City Council.
In my humble judgment he has the
best end of the argument. If Victoria had been able in the first instance to repudiate any responsibility for supplying outside municipal-
ties with water the case would have
been different, but since Victoria has
saddled itself with the responsibility
and lias always admitted it, I fail to
see how anyone can object because
the Reeve of Oak Bay is pressing for
something definite. He knows by sad
experience that there is nothing more
difficult than to pin the Victoria City
Council down to a concrete proposition, the City Fathers have played
with the water question for many
years, and the Oak Bay Council may
be excused for having visions of devastation and drought. Unless I am
greatly mistaken there will be no
"let up" on the part of Oak Bay and
its doughty champion until the City
has signed an agreement, despite the
apparent reluctance of its legal advisers.
On the dog question 1 could say
a good deal, but perhaps these days
a little will suffice. What strikes me
most forcibly is that so level headed
a business man as Alderman Richard
Hall should strive to attain immortality through such a medium as the
dog by-law. From time immorial dogs
have been chartered libertines in respect of the freedom of the sidewalk.
I cannot think that Alderman Hall
has ever been in Constantinople or
Cairo, if he had he would certainly
think Victoria a dog paradise. I
sometimes think that the ultra respectability of our city has infected
the canine race so few dogs are seen
about, and so well do they behave. I
admit that some of them are mongrels, but this is a matter well within
the control of the authorities especially if they will act in friendly cooperation with the Kennel Club, ln
England thc Kennel Club is always
consulted with reference to legislation or Municipal control of dogs,
indeed nothing is done without their
approval. This is simply an illustration of getting and acting upon expert advice. Why cannot the City
Fathers of Victoria do the same?
To banish the dog from the street
because he is not always a patrician,
or because some tradesmen wish to
display their wares on the sidewalk
is surely not a very logical proposal.
To demand that all dogs shall be led
is both unreasonable and restrictive of
the liberty of the subject, to say nothing of its effect upon the dog. Some
people keep dogs for protection, but
many more for companionship. The
enjoyment of this companionship is
due largely to the excellent understanding establishcd'between man ancl
his faithful friend, as the result of
training. Any dog can be dragged
along with a piece of rope, but it is
an insult to an intelligent animal and
would speedily lead to demoralization
of the canine race. The only dogs
hitherto led are the vicious or the
stupid ones, the former for the protection of the public, the latter for
the safe custody of thc animal, but
these are in a small minority and it
is a sin to punish the whole family
of sagacious and faithful dogs because of thc possible vagaries of a
few, even if those vagaries do occasionally inconvenience a worthy alderman. Far abler writers than Lounger
havc discussed this matter in thc
columns of The Week and of the
daily press. I would add my appeal
to the others and beg to assure Alderman Hall that the dog-led proposal is as unworthy of his intelligence as it is  of the  noble animal
whieh  he would insult if it is  given
effect.
1 am glad to learn that there is a
probability of the Empress Hotel being enlarged, my gratification arises
from the fact that I always predicted that it would be too small for
the growing requirements of Victoria,
bu I little expected that the demand
for increased accommodation would
come so soon, for once the policy of
the C. P. R. is in advance, and the
Company is blazing the trail for othet
important developments in the Capital
City. Under the new arrangement
1 hear no complaints and every room
is occupied, my belief is that if the
hotel were doubled it would be too
small in a year, for once the rich
American tourist is caught the day
is won, and that he and she have
been caught is attested by the daily
list of arrivals which may be seen in
the hotel registers. The building of
the Empress Hotel is the best thing
that has ever happened for Victoria
and I only wish the City Fathers
could be inoculated with the same
germ of enterprise and optimism
which has set the C. P. R. agoing.
There will be general rejoicing at
the settlement of the dispute between
the City and the B. C. Electric Railway and especially at the outcome in
the commencement of construction
work on the Ross Bay extension. The
Week is assured that this is but the
beginning of most extensive and elaborate development, which will include
a ear line to Cadboro Bay, an extension on Douglas street, and the
completion of the circuit from Foul
Bay Road to Oak Bay. In addition
Fort Street will be double-tracked to
the Junction. This is being done not
a moment too soon, and is as much
a matter of congratulation to the B.
C. E. R. as to the citizens of Victoria.

Tennis in Victoria.
(By  Umpire)
As the tournament is still in progress I have to postpone my review
until next week, but something may
be said of the games already played,
and the skilful exponents who have
delighted the crowds of enthusiasts
who have flocked to thc Courts this
week. The first reflection is that it
was a pity no lady could be found
to give Miss Hotchkiss a strong
game. She is as I predicted in a class
by herself, or at any rate in the same
class as Miss Sutton, and it would
not be reasonable to expect ladies
who probably on an average devote
less than a quarter as much time to
the game, to become as expert. One
never tires of seeing Miss Hotchkiss; if she is less forceful, she is not
less interesting than Miss Sutton.
She plays with her head and in consequence her work is an intelligent exposition of one of the finest games.
Her placing, her overhand stroke, and
her back stroke are all models. She
has a wrist which is both strong and
supple, indeed most of her strokes
are what are technically called wrist
strokes. She never seems to tire, and
in the exhibition games which she
has played during the week with such
classy men as Bruce Smith, Gilliat,
and Niles, she has easily held her
own. ' Jordan admits that in Portland she played him two sets, and
he didn't score a game, and as Jordan played Freeman this week to 6-8,
it is possible to get some line on
Miss Hotchkiss.
This brings me to say a word of
Lou Freeman, the popular veteran of
the Tennis Courts, and no wonder
that hc is popular, for he is a perfect
gentleman and an almost perfect
player. While he is neither as young
nor as lithe as of yore, he still retains all his marvellous dexterity and
skill. Few men could have played
Schwengers as good a game as he did
for three sets in Vancouver, and the
easy manner in which he disposed of
all the men who have appeared
against him this week in spite of his
handicap of years and weight must be
regarded as a remarkable performance under the circumstances.    Free-

Many an up-to-date man and

it. a real hardship if they had
to dispense with their daily
bottle of White Rock, the
pure, sparkling mineral water
that is now famous the world
over. White Rock is not only
fresh, sparkling and delightful to the taste, but certified
by all leading analysts as
being "absolutely pure."
It is the drink par excellence

man's conduct on the courts is beyond
all praise, and he is a perfect model
to tennis players in this respect. He
never disputes a point; he bows instantly to the Umpire's decision; he
does not fuss about between strokes,
nor has he the disconcerting and objectionable trick, which some players
have, of suddenly discovering that
he wants to chalk the handle of his
racquet, mop his forehead or take a
drink just at the moment when his
opponent is ready to serve. Needless
to say Freeman is popular with the
spectators who are unstinted in their
applause.
Of the other players seen here
Bruce Smith and Jordan have both
shown themselves to bc first raters,
while Gilliat and Nyles have played
good tennis and fully justified their
entries.
In thc unfinished stages of the contests I do not like to say much about
the ladies, but so far Miss Bell has
scored an unbroken series of victories, and her defeat of Miss Becket
has been the most sensational event
of the week. I cannot conclude these
brief notes without congratulating
the Committee on the popularity of
the present tournament and the public interest which it has evoked. This
has been evidenced by the largest attendances on record during the preliminary stages. Perhaps the best
judge of this is the caterer who told
me that from the opening day the
attendance has been more like she has
usually provided for at the end of the
week. All of which must be very
gratifying, and should strengthen the
hands of the Committee in any project they may have in hand for the
acquisition of larger and more suitable grounds.

lo the Editor of The Week.
I Dear   Sir,—I  would  like  to  bring
public   notice   one   of   the  worst
bawbacks we have towards the tra-
plling class of people.    In the past
tw months, with all the people that
lave come to Victoria for  the day,
peek, or month, as the case may be,
have heard  the  remark,  time and
line again, Where can we get a drink
If  water?    Now  on  Sunday  where
Ian you get a drink of water? People
Io not like to go into a confectionery
■tore and ask for a  drink of water
Jrhen  soft  drinks  are  sold;   it  is  a
Irink of water they want, not a soda
Irink.    Now we have in  Victoria a
(pot that is ideal for such a purpose
Is this, a water fountain, and it would
|ot be only ornamental but a credit
our city.   I do not think it would
lost a great deal at that.    On the
lorner of Belleville and Government
Itreet, opposite the parliament build-
ligs, we have a piece of ground gong to waste and covered with that
Jetestable  grass   known   as   the  fox
ail.   Look  at  the  parliament build-
rigs and the C. P. R. hotel and there
|midst all the splendor is a spot that
an  eyesore  and discredit  to Vic-
oria the beautiful.    It  is  a wonder
me  that this  has  not  been  sug-
lested by some one before, which I
lon't think it has..   If the city would
|et the weeds and grass cleaned off
would not look so bad.    Now, sir,
you can make anything of the sug-
|estion and insert it into your paper,
think it would be a boost for Vic-
Dria the Beautiful.
Hoping to  see  something  of this
li your paper in the near future, 1
emain,
Yours respectfully,

A SKIN CREAM TEST.
Nothing teaches like experience. It
you have a scratch, slight cut, black-
nead or pimple troubling you, you
will be in a position to test the virtues
of Dr. T. Felix Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, and to appreciate its healing
and purifying qualities. Then, with
all doubts quickly removed, a continued use will demonstrate its value
as a skin beautifier and purifier, and
how fully it carries out the high
claims made for it. At Druggists and

I'he Mayor and Aldermen of the City
of Victoria, B.C.
Gentlemen,—Some   time   ago   the
Corporation  gave  the  Natural  His-
firy Society permission to plant naive  trees  and  shrubs,  wild  Howers,
lte,  in  the  portion  of  the  park in
lie   vicinity    of    the    South    Ward
Ichool.    Since then the Natural His-
jry Society have been endeavouring
make this collection, but their ef-
arts have been nullified by the fact
|iat someone continually destroys the
llants,  particularly  those  planted in
Iiat portion of the park bordering on
lie   drive,  from   Michigan   street  to
lie artificial bridge,  near  the  band-
Itand.   This is the place where some
tears ago the Council placed a row
If Arbutus trees, which, however, all
lied.     The   next   year   the   Council
ilanted  them again,  but  again they
lied.    Thc Wildflower Committee of
(he Natural History Society have been
endeavoring  to   carry   out   this  idea
Ind have succeeded in making some
bf   the   trees   grow,   and   have   also
Ilanted a row of Dogwood trees thus
Ind though several of them have been
J.ulled up many of them were growing
very vigorously.   Sometime last week
Jsome person has been again at work
land   has   pulled   out   of   the   ground
Iseveral Arbutus trees, one very fine
one   which   had   been   planted   two
lears ago was growing strongly. They
|iave also taken up some of the Dog-
vood trees.
I send you herewith one of the
trees, a young Dogwood, which I
found pulled up and laid on the
tround alongside the place where it
had been growing. This will show
1'OU the mischief that is being done.
Next to this is a small Arbutus
Irec which had had a large rock
placed on top of it, and so on. Such
[esults to continued painstaking efforts are most disheartening.
Mr. England, the Park Superintendent, had been kind enough  to havc
these trees dug round and protected,
but,  if this  spoliation  is  allowed to
jo on, the efforts of the Society and
the  Park  Superintendent  will  be  p
(mere  waste of time.    I  believe that
Jn Vancouver the  rule  that no one
Is allowed to touch any ferns, plants
for  flowers  is  very  rigidly  enforced,

On Impressions
Science is making great strides in
every department, and possibly in
none more than in that which is devoted to the study of psychic force.
I must confess that I am rather shy
.of this pedantic pharaseology and
only resort to it because it is expressive.
More progress has been made in
connoting effects than in establishing causes, and it still remains, even
with respect lo psychic force, that
"there are more things in heaven and
earJi than are dream tof in our philosophy." ,
1 do not wish to apply this reflection to any profound study of human
nature, but circumstances which have
transpired during the present week
have aroused a train of thought and
1 wish to register a few impressions.
I am thinking of the effect of personality. For instance, one passes
through a throng of people, or stands
for a few moments on the fringe of
a crowd, and yet in the briefest moment there is observation and distinct
impression. The looker on finds one
face attractive, another repulsive, but
between these two extremes there are
many gradations of feeling. In order
to study character and to arrive at
any logical conclusion, we require
much data, we even like to go beyond
the point to which our powers of
observation carry us, and to glean information as to a man's antecedents,
occupations and disposition. But this
is going far beyond intuition, and
thc effect which one person produces
on another, by mere propinquity.
Why are wc instantly attracted or
repelled by people who are absolute
strangers to us? We may not even
hear them speak, or witness any act,
which is an indication of character,
and yet from the features and at
times, even from their bearing we
make deductions instantaneously, and
often correct ones.
Upon these facts we must all agree,
but it would be interesting to know
why and how such impressions are
made and received. They are not
the result of a knowledge of human
nature, but are purely intuitive. Are
they not more than half magnetic,
and if so, what is that subtle elusive,
intangible medium which effects communication between the senses? Is it
something which may be correlated
with ether, and the wave theory?   Is
it possible that temperament and
character are effective in initiating a
species of a wireless telegraphy, which
involuntarily and unconsciously conveys the psychic message? Is the
appreciation wholly mental or wholly
physical, or does it partake of both?
In reflecting on these questions, the
word instinct naturally occurs to one's
mind. If science has demonstrated
anything it is that nature has provided man as it has provided the
lower animals with certain faculties
which in their appreciative and protective essence are more potent than
the logical brain which can only deduce from known data. If these reflections have any point, and I admit
that they are more or less random,
and almost altogether speculative,
they lead to the conclusion that in
judging character we are apt to become too much the slaves of reason
and are prone to disregard the
promptings of natural intuition.
This great faculty is necessarily developed to a higher degree in woman
than in man, and as a consequence
she makes far fewer mistakes in her
estimate of character. But I hark
back to my starting point, and reflect
on the unfailing interest afforded by
a study of crowds. Charles Lamb
loved a crowd, he maintained that it
was easier to be alone amid the thousands of people thronging the Strand
than in a deserted country lane. And
so he would thread his way
from Paternoster Row to Somerset
House, and pass perhaps ten thousand
of his fellows without appearing io
notice one. Indeed he did not even
look at them, nor could he describe
the appearance of a single person and
yet he imbibed the most marvellous
and profound impressions. He learned
to love the people, the common people, and to understand their joys and
sorrows, their ambitions and their disappointments. He even acquired a
knowledge of their idiosyncrasies,
and exploited them in those inimitable and incomparable essays of Elia
for the delight of all ages. To use
a modern phrase, Charles Lamb must
have been a perfect "Medium," and
if the world knew and could define
the faculty which he possessed in so
large a degree and which enabled
him to know men and their characteristics without observing them, it
would probably have solved a problem
which has baffled the wisest of men
in all ages.
bination to lift the Cup from the
banks of the Fraser River. Now that
the piece of silverware has been
brought across the Rockies it will be
an incentive for the Provincial teams
to get in and drill and endeavor to
grasp the mug. Already it has been
stated that next season will see a
combination of forces in Vancouver
and it can be taken for granted that
the Capital City will not be far behind.
Another defeat was handed out to
the local baseball players on Saturday last when the Websters of Seattle
gave them a bumping to the tune of
7—i. With the exception of the
seventh innings it was good ball but
in this period the locals made sufficient errors and dumb plays to give
the visitors five runs, which was
enough to put them so far ahead that
the locals were not dangerous. This
afternoon the locals are up against
the Athletes of Seattle. This team
has already been beaten once by the
locals and a determined effort will be
made to repeat the performance this
afternoon.
The defeat of the Victoria Cricket
Club at the hands of the Garrison,
came in the nature of a surprise and
the local exponents, will have to bud*:
up if they intend to win the championship tournament which takes
place this month. The Albions sprung
a big surprise on the present holders
of the championship and it will teach
them in future not to hold their rivals
too lightly. Over confidence is almost as bad as lack of confidence and
it was this that beat the visitors although the Albions played good
cricket and well deserve their victory.
Bobby Kerr, the champion sprinter,
was the only Canadian athlete to
make anything of a showing at the
Olympic games and he did it to perfection. Longboat, of whom great
things have been heard, is classed as
an also ran in the Marathon. Several
weeks ago I predicted that the Indian
would not be one, two, three and my
prediction has been borne out. Finer
grit has never been shown in sports
than was shown by the Italian runner in his effort to capture the great
race and after all it is too bad he
did not get it.

After having held the Minto Cup
for the past seven years the Shamrocks of Montreal have at last been
defeated and it has remained for. a
team from the West to do the trick.
The New Westminster Club deserves
great credit for the persistency in
which they have attempted to lift the
cup and that their efforts have now
been successful will in no small
measure make the easterners realize
that in the West they have players
worthy of special attention. I have
to acknowledge that I did not expect
the cup to come west, but now that
it has I will be one of the first to
extend congratulations to the Conquering Heroes. The "champions of
the world" is no small title and I
know full well that the new holders
will defend the title in a manner that
will insure the cup a safe resting place
for some years.
Although the full accounts of the
matches have not come to hand the
press dispatches show that the challengers simply played the Shamrocks
off their feet in the start and after
that were never pressed. The team
that won the cup is with one or two
exceptions mainly youngsters who
have within the last couple of years
broken into the game and with careful handling they should be able to
play several years before they have
to hang up their sticks, but while the
present aggregation hangs together it

NEW CARPETS
Fresh from the looms of such noted makers as "Crossley" and "Templeton" which is a guarantee of perfection in design,
materials and lengthy service—a vital'point-r-for there is no real economy in carpet buying if the goods will not stand for
hard wear and plenty of it—you don't buy carpets every day; when you do buy carpets you want them to last and look
well—our carpets will last from the wedding day until the golden wedding day—and look well all the time. The latter
quality depends on your running a Bissell's over the carpet once or twice a week and occasionally giving them a thorough
cleaning in our carpet cleaning machine. We are proud of our carpets because they bring us hosts of customers—young
couples who have romped on Weiler's carpets in the old homes and ascertained the amount of hard wear they will stand.

Notes From a Diary
11.
She was to sail at "six sharp" ac-
ording to the Mate and he did his
est. He was not only mate but crew,
ild was stowing away bales of strong
melling hay, ascks of "chop feed"
),r cows, and boxes of groceries. The
>rward part of the deck had been
alf covered the night before with
ing pieces of lumber of different
nigths, which stuck out in front in
most awkward and untidy manner;
iiottgh to break the heart of any
rate taking a pride in the way he
towed his freight.
The captain appeared on the wharf
t three minutes to six.   "All ready,
His?" eh enquired in a casual tone.
All ready," came from the crew, as
e gave a last twist to a sack of beans
Ind sprang up the steps to the top
f the deck-house.   The captain came
uitiously down a ladder leaning at
11 awkward angle from the wharf, to
ie steamer's deck, and disappeared
ito  the  wheel-house.    The  engine-
>om bell rang twice, and the pro-
slier woke up and began to revolve
pwly.   The mate paid out the haw-
r from the stern, the bows swung
vay from the wharf, and then the
ptain came out. and, with an oar,
■lped to get the hawser loop off the
le  end,  and  on  board.    We  were
f, and it was half a minute past six.
A man put his head out of one of
e  cabin  windows,  and after looker round  remarked  that  "this  was
other day," but his information be-
g received   with    cold   silence, he
me out of his cabin with his boots
his hand, and completed his toilet
deck.
We passed through the silent har-
ur in the morning light, and stcam-
out into an oily sea which lost
itself in mist. A few small boats
were lying off some rocks, dimly
seen, with figures in them which
might be fishing. The tide was running up strong, and long ribbons of
seaweed streamed and waved to ana
fro just under the surface of the
water. Smoke from burning seaweed
clung in wreaths round some small
rocky islands. The topsail of a cutter appeared above the mist on our
right, and the low rocky shore on
our left slipped slowly by as our engine thumped sulkily in its prison. ,
The mate, who seemed to be doing
the work of the world while all else
slept and dozed, began to clean the
deck with a broom and frequent pails
of water;, and that being accomplished to his satisfaction, he relieve'!
the captain at the wheel, and we went
to berakfast in the tiny cabin just
over the screw.
The captain developed a vein of
conversation with the ham and eggs
and fried liver, and when we again
sought the deck, prepared for that
great daily joy, the after-breakfast
pipe, was laying down the law and
his opinion on the Chinese question.
His treatment of the matter was simplicity itself. "Put a $500 tax on
every Chinaman and then let 'em
come if they want to."
About ten o'clock we were passing
along narrow channels among many
small islands heavily wooded with
dark firs, getting glimpses of clearings and farms. Then, making a
graceful curve to avoid some hidden
shoal, entered a long narrow harbor
with a little toy church, perched on
a rock, and a wharf at the upper
end.
The engine here seemed to think
we were near thc end of our journey,
for the thunipings below became less
frequent, and at last we glided
through  the  calm  waters  with  only
an occasional throb from the propeller. The captain whistled down the
tube in the wheel-house, and in a
gentle voice called to the depths the
name of "Harry," but could get no
answer. The Mate put on a look that
said plainly it was no affair of his,
and busied himself ostentatiously in
the bows tying a hand line to the loop
of the hawser. The captain, with a
doubtful air, went below to solve the
mystery, but returned quickly with
the news that "Harry was cleaning
the grate." There was nothing for it
but to wait till "Harry" chose to get
up steam again, which he presently
did, with the preliminary of a great
deal of black smoke from the funnel.
The propeller once more got to
work, and we neared the wharf at
full speed, with steam blowing off,
and the engine-room bell jingling imploringly.
A small boy whose fishing we interrupted, helped us to make fast, and the
captain, catching sight of someone on
the wharf with whom he seemed to
wish to avoid an interview, called
to the crew to "look sharp and get
that freight off," and dived into his
cabin. But the party in question,
whose freight it appeared had gone
astray, was not to be put off, and
the captain had to come out and have
explanations. The half dozen men on
the wharf, some coloured, some shewing traces of Indian blood, appeared
to have come chiefly to enquire after
"Gus's" health, and we soon left, taking away a few sacks of potatoes.
After leaving the bay and rounding
a low rocky promontory, where open
glades of bracken and groups of wind-
warped firs reached almost to the
water's edge, we entered another long
inlet of the sea, and here at our next
landing I left the steamer.
I shall never forget my first experience of the  soft, drowsy, feeling in
the air of these British Columbia
islands. The sun was breaking
through a thin mist, flakes of which
were lying on the surface of the water
or clinging in long wisps to the hillsides; here displaying the lirs in
dashes of gold and purple, tliere
shrouding all in silvery grey. The
white road wound round the head of
the bay, bounded by a wood-rail fence,
half concealed by small fir and cedar,
briar rose and wild gooseberry
bushes, and dust-covered bracken.
1 soon met an oldish man seated
behind a fat horse, and enquired of
him the way to a friend I had come
to visit. Hc began to direct me in
broad Devonshire but broke off to say
that if I would wait a few minutes he
would he back and give me a lift on
my way. As the road was hot and
dusty 1 thanked him, and sat down
on a small knoll overlooking the bay.
The view was delight.ul. The wave-
less surface of the sea lay before me
bright with the noonday sun. Low
purple hills, some mist still lying in
their hollows, stretched away on
either hand till they melted into the
blue of distant islands. The steamer
I had come by was rounding a point
of land about three miles off, leaving
a trail of brown smoke across the
pale violet sky. Near me great firs
growing on the edge of the cliff
leaned over the water thirty feet below. When thc fat horse returned 1
mounted beside the driver and we proceeded at a slow jog along the road.

one. The Moving Pictures will illustrate the troubles of a bridal couple

The Little Lawyer Man.
It was a little lawyer man
Who softly blushed as he began
Her poor, dead husband's will to scan.
lie smiled while thinking of his fee,
Then said to her so tenderly:
"Vou have a nice, fat legacy."
And when next day he lay in bed,
With bandages upon his head,
Ile wondered what on earth he'd said.

An unusually big show has been

Willie Brown was the proud proprietor of a small hen, which one day
laid an egg. lt was so very small,
however, that Willie was greatly disappointed. His father, who kept a
lot of curios in thc house, had some
line specimens of thc ostrich egg, one
of which was found to be missing.
Willie was taxed with the theft of the
egg and asked where he had put it.
The boy pleaded guilty, and led his
father to the house where he kept his
small hen. Inside, opposite the nest,
the father was astonished to find the
missing ostrich egg, with the following notice posted over it:
"Watch this, and do your best!"—

Who amongst the real members of
the Kennel Club but has had some
feeling of disappointment that its
achievements have fallen short of its

down in the Club's Constitution. The

The Victoria City Kennel Club has
outgrown its infancy. It has been a

a dozen years or so, although its present title or designation has only been

A perusal of its premium lists and

The ideal Kennel Club, however, is
something larger in its scope and
sphere of influence than a Dog Show
Club and with all kindliness of intention the question may be asked of the
club: "Are you a Dog Show Club or
a Kennel Club?" There is a difference. The time is fitting for this
question and it is suggested that, as
it might be inconvenient to alter the
name or designation of the club, tiie
club should change its policy and
work so as to entitle it to its present
name—so that it may be a power in
the land—respected by all—a terror
to dog thieves, and to all who indulge
in dishonest or dishonourable actions
in regard to matters canine—so that
it may be thought an honour to be a
member and a still higher one to be
put on the committee, so that the
town council may ask if they may be
allowed to join,; so that it may be
what it can be and what Victorians
want it to be.
Time and Eternity.
On one occasion, when in Congress,
General Benjamin F. Butler rose in
his place and intimated that the member who occupied the floor was transgressing the limits of debate.
"Why, General," said the member,
reproachfully, "you divided your time
with me."
"I know I did," rejoined Butler,
grimly, "but I didn't divide eternity
with you."
"Paul, will you please go to his

"Yes, mother," softly said Paul on
his return, "he's all asleep 'cept his

was not intended to wear.   The Week
|ith the best of intentions took up the
lidgels in defence of Victoria when a Van-
fraver philistine declared that it was a

pitliet in the most opprobrious manner,
lhe Week tried to do what no other- paper
las tried, to demonstrate that the term
Joss back need not of necessity have an
laprobrious meaning.    But Senator Mc-
Jonald althought a diligent student of The

[•ror of thanking God that he is not as
[her men, and particularly not as the
jditor of The Week, and members of the
Irogressive Party, which he disavows and
radically pronounces "Anathema."    If
enator McDonald had invested in Funk &
['agnail's slang dictionary he would have
lamed that moss back means one who is
^progressive, wedded to old ideas, and
(twilling to move with the times, or to

not one of these, although advancing in
years, he continues to serve the community
in which he has lived so long, and like
Lord Strathcona, who although nearly
ninety possesses none of the elements of
the moss back, has determined to round up
a long and honorable career with worthy
service. In view of this The Week extremely regrets that Senator McDonald
should have misconstrued its intention,
which was simply to defend Victoria, and
to say a word for the saving features of
moss backism. The Week regrets that Senator McDonald did not see the point of its
observations, and he is less progressive
than The Week believes him to be if he
does not recognize that there are still a few
moss backs in Victoria whose pessimism
is its greatest bane.
Across the
Divide.
Since the last issue of The
Week two well known Victorians   have   crossed   the
great divide, and A. S. Far-
well and George Weiler will be seen no
more in their accustomed haunts. Both
were men of note, although of very different occupations. George Weiler was a fine
specimen of the hard working, successful
business man, with keen commercial instincts, well balanced by broad generous
sympathies, a man of few words but one
who knew his mind and was not afraid to
speak it. Withal a man who recogzized
that business is not all in life, and found
time whilst accumulating a fortune to cultivate a hobby, and thus keep fresh and
green his memory with men who love a
true sportsman. A. S. Farwell was a much
older man and by many was considered a
crank, but they who knew him recognized
his worth, and had found out that beneath
a somewhat abrupt and rugged manner he
concealed a kindly heart which prompted
him to many generous deeds. He was a
man of the strictest integrity, of good
judgment and absolutely inflexible where
right and wrong were concerned. Few
more fearless men could be found in the
West. Although not rich he was of independent means, led a simple life and
valued his personal independence above
everything. He was intensely loyal to the
throne and to thc British constitution, and
few men were better worth consulting when
any question of conduct or ethics were
concerned. Although for many years a resident of Victoria, he was well known
throughout the Kootenays, where he blazed
many a trail, and wherever he was known,
he was respected and trusted. Peace be
to his ashes! may British Columbia never
lack man of the calibre of A. S. Farwell.
Notable
Visitors.
In September next Victoria
will be honored by the presence of probably the most
notable influential Association which has ever visited the Pacific
Coast. The Canadian Mining Institute
and members of the Federated Institute of
Mining Engineers and the Iron and Steel
Institute will be here to hold a business
session and to attend a reception in the
Parliament Buildings, and to visit some
of the mining properties on Vancouver Islnnd. Mr. E. Jacobs, the local Secretary,
has the arrangements well in hand, and in
conjunction with an influential committee
is working hard to ensure the success of
the gathering. The Week appeals to the
public to do all within their power to further the great interest whicli must be
aroused by the visit of representatives of
these kindred associations. The agricultural and other resources of Vancouver Island have been well advertised and exploited, the mineral resources have received
less attention, probably because they appeal to a smaller clientele. This is a great
opportunity to interest the most influential
men in our country and its possibilities.
The very foremost Mining Engineers and
Iron and Steel Masters will be here. The
Week is in receipt of communications from
men who have been in the front ranks of
the mining profession for many years, intimating tlieir intention to be here in September. Victoria has very properly paid
considerable attention to conventions and
societies of various kinds, but this is a
unique opportunity to do honor to men
who are deserving of honor because of their
eminence and who at the same time are
in a position to return the compliment in
a manner which will be most gratifying
and advantageous to British Columbians.
Coming
West.
The Liberal press announce
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
coming West.     No  doubt
he has heard of the Pacific
Coast, of its mild and genial climate, and
is coming for the benefit of his health.   It
is further probable that he desires to see
for himself the land of promise, of which
his faithful servitors have told him so
much.   He may have resolved to find out
for himself what truth tliere is in the report that the supplies for the Grand Trunk
Pacific are being purchased in American
cities, and transported in American boats.
He may have heard through the whispering of some small bird, or possibly through
having paid a visit to the Library in the
Parliament   Buildings   at   Ottawa   and
looked up a copy of The Week, that the
operations of the Grand Trunk Pacific at
the Pacific Coast are fearful and wonderful, and devised for the purpose of lulling
an expectant electorate.   But be the object
of his visit what it may, it is quite certain
that it is not in connection with Federal
politics or an impending election.      Sir
AVilfrid Laurier would not lay himself
open to the suspicion of taking a Western
trip at the public expense for party purposes, it is only the much maligned and
politic Premier of Britisli Columbia who
could be guilty of such conduct.   So when
Sir Wilfrid comes, we will all prepare to
welcome him, and to aid him in his research without any "arriere pense," except
to do honor to a distinguished statesman,
and from the time he steps into Victoria
until he steps out of it again, he will not
hear one word of politics, not even from
the Victoria Times.    So mote it be.
For the last few weeks thc
The Olympic daily papers have been full
Games. of items dealing  with  the
Olympic games, and thanks
to really excellent reports in the Victoria
daily papers people have been able to
keep track of the events. Now that the
programme is pretty nearly complete it is
possible to appraise the value of the cele
bration both from an athletic and a politic
standpoint. The performance, whilst excellent, has not on the whole been remarkable although the best talent from all parts
of the world has been attracted. Few records have been broken, and not one has
approached some of the old records such
as W. G. George's mile in 4-12 2-5. If
the weather had been more favorable and
the track in better condition it is likely
that faster times would have been made in
most of the races, but even allowing for
this, the Olympic Games have not materially advanced the athletic standard in any
department, and in some instances they
have notoriously failed to reach it. It is
doubtful whether the cause of athletics is
not better served by the ordinary International meetings, which are far easier to
manage and which have for many years
attracted the best talent. It seems quite
certain that the project will result in heavy
financial loss, as at no time was the attendance in any degree commensurate with the
expenditure, indeed as a drawing card the
Olympic Games did not compare with the
ordinary Saturday football match, where
fifty thousand is a common attendance
even in the Provinces. The financial aspect of the question will probably determine the matter in future. A word must
be said as to the unsportsmanlike conduct
of the American athletes and their manager, who have again confirmed the universal impression that they know nothing of
the true spirit of sport. The final conclusion is that if the Olympic Games are
to result in arousing International susceptibilities and disturbing public sentiment
to say nothing of engendering bitterness
and recrimination, the game is not worth
the candle.
The illustrious men who
The Quebec gathered at the ancient City-
Tercentenary. 0f Quebec to fittingly celebrate the most momentus
event in Canadian history, have discharged
the high and honorable functions to which
they were appointed, and have left for
their destinations. Now that the magnificent pageant is a thing of the past, it is
time to appraise its value and significance
from a national and Imperial standpoint.
It has meant much for Canada in concentrating the attention of the Empire upon
the rugged heights of Quebec the meeting
place of two of the greatest military heroes
in the annals of the Empire. This is a reminder both to Great Britain and to
Greater Britain, that if Canada is a new
country measured from the date of Confederation, it is an old one, rich in the
lore of pioneer days and pioneer work.
The celebration is the commemoration of
the fact tliat Canada was the battleground
upon whicli the fate of the New World
was decided. These reflections will give
added value to Canada and Canadian affairs in tlie eyes of the world. The added
impressiveness of the royal presence and
that of the distinguished General who accompanied thc Prince of Wales, fitly
symbolize the permanence of the Constitutional ties which bind Canada to the
Mother Country. Tliere are many features
of the celebration well worthy of comment,
but these appear to be the salient points,
and they cannot be too firmly impressed
upon the mind of thc rising generation or
too deeply cherished by those who havc
the moulding of public opinion. At The Street    o)

I am not sure that public interest
in Victoria has not shifted somewhat from water to dogs, at any rare
it is divided. I notice with reference
to the former that Reeve Oliver is
more than holding his own in the
joust with the Victoria City Council.
In my humble judgment he has the
best end of the argument, if Victoria had been able in the first instance to repudiate any responsibility for supplying outside municipal-
ties with water the case would have
been different, but since Victoria has
saddled itself with the responsibility
and has always admitted it, I fail to
see how anyone can object because
the Reeve of Oak Bay is pressing for
something definite. Hc knows by sad
experience that there is nothing''more
difficult than to pin the Victoria City
Council down to a concrete proposition, the City Fathers have played
with the water question for many
years, and the Oak Bay Council may
be excused for having visions of devastation and drought. Unless I am
greatly mistaken there will be no
"let up" on the part of Oak Bay and
its doughty champion until the City
has signed an agreement, despite the
apparent reluctance of its legal advisers.
On the dog question 1 could say
a good deal, but perhaps these days
a little will suffice. What strikes me
most forcibly is that so level headed
a business man as Alderman Richard
Hall should strive to attain immortality through such a medium as the
dog by-law. From time inimorial dogs
have been chartered libertines in respect of the freedom of the sidewalk.
I cannot think that Alderman Hall
has ever been in Constantinople or
Cairo, if he had he would certainly
think Victoria a dog paradise. I
sometimes think that the ultra respectability of our city has infected
the canine race so few dogs are seen
about, and so well do they behave. I
admit that some of them are mongrels, but this is a matter well within
the control of the authorities especially if they will act in friendly cooperation with the Kennel Club. In
England the Kennel Club is always
consulted with reference to legislation or Municipal control of dogs,
indeed nothing is done without their
approval. This is simply an illustration of getting and acting upon expert advice. Why cannot the City
Fathers of Victoria do the same?
To banish the dog from the street
because he is not always a patrician,
or because some tradesmen wish to
display their wares on the sidewalk
is surely not a very logical proposal.
To demand that all dogs shall bc led
is both unreasonable and restrictive of
the liberty of the subject, to say nothing of its effect upon the clog. Some
people keep dogs for protection, but
many more for companionship. The
enjoyment of this companionship is
due largely to the excellent understanding established between man and
his faithful friend, as the result of
training. Any dog can be dragged
along with a piece of rope, but it is
an insult to an intelligent animal and
would speedily lead to demoralization
of the canine race. The only dogs
hitherto led are the vicious or the
stupid ones, the former for the protection of the public, the latter for
the safe custody of the animal, but
these are in a small minority and it
is a sin to punish the whole family
of sagacious and faithful dogs because of the possible vagaries of a
few, even if those vagaries do occasionally inconvenience a worthy alderman. Far abler writers than Lounger
have discussed this matter in the
columns of Thc Week and of the
daily press. I would add my appeal
to the others and beg to assure Alderman Hall that the dog-led proposal is as unworthy of his intelligence  as  it  is   of  the  noble  animal
which he would insult if it is given
effect.
I am glad to learn that there is a
probability of the Empress Hotel being enlarged, my gratification arises
from the fact that I always predicted that it would be too small for
the growing requirements of Victoria,
bu 1 little expected that the demand
for increased accommodation would
come so soon, for once the policy of
the C. P. R. is in advance, and the
Company is blazing the trail for othet
important developments in the Capital
City. Under the new arrangement
I hear no complaints and every room
is occupied, my belief is that if the
hotel were doubled it would be too
small in a year, for once the rich
American tourist is caught the day-
is won, and that he and she have
been caught is attested by the daily
list of arrivals which may be seen in
the hotel registers. Thc building of
the Empress Hotel is the best thing
that has ever happened for Victoria
and I only wish the City Fathers
could be inoculated with the same
germ of enterprise and optimism
which has set the C. P. R. agoing.
There will be general rejoicing at
the settlement of the dispute between
the City and the B. C. Electric Railway and especially at the outcome in
the commencement of construction
work on the Ross Bay extension. The
Week is assured that this is but the
beginning of most extensive and elaborate development, whicli will include
a car line to Cadboro Bay, an extension on Douglas street, and the
completion of the circuit from Foul
Bay Road to Oak Bay. In addition
Fort Street will be double-tracked to
the Junction. This is being done not
a moment too soon, and is as much
a matter of congratulation to the B.
C. E. R. as to the citizens of Victoria.

Tennis in Victoria.
(By Umpire)
As the tournament is still in progress I have to postpone my review
until next week, but something may
be said of the games already played,
and the skilful exponents who have
delighted the crowds of enthusiasts
who have flocked to the Courts this
week. The lirst reflection is that it
was a pity no lady could be found
to give Miss Hotchkiss a strong
game. She is as 1 predicted in a class
by herself, or at any rate in the same
class as Miss Sutton, and it would
not be reasonable to expect ladies
who probably on an average devote
less than a quarter as much time to
the game, to become as expert. One
never tires of seeing Aliss Hotchkiss; if she is less forceful, she is not
less interesting than Miss Sutton.
She plays with her head and in consequence her work is an intelligent exposition of one of the finest games.
Her placing, her overhand stroke, and
her back stroke are all models. She
has a wrist which is both strong and
supple, indeed most of her strokes
are what are technically called wrist
strokes. She never seems to tire, and
in the exhibition games which she
litis played during the week with such
classy men as Bruce Smith, Gilliat,
and Niles, she has easily held her
own. Jordan admits that in Portland she played him two sets, and
he didn't score a game, and as Jordan played Freeman this week to 6-8,
it is possible to get some line on
Miss Hotchkiss.
This brings me to say a word of
Lou Freeman, the popular veteran of
the Tennis Courts, and no wonder
that he is popular, for he is a perfect
gentleman and an almost perfect
player. While he is neither as young
nor as lithe as of yore, he still retains all his marvellous dexterity and
skill. Few men could have played
Schwengers as good a game as hc did
for three sets in Vancouver, and the
easy manner in which he disposed of
all the men who have appeared
against him this week in spite of his
handicap of years and weight must bc
regarded as a remarkable performance under the circumstances.    Free-

man's conduct on the courts is beyond
all praise, and he is a perfect model
to tennis players in this respect. He
never disputes a point; he bows instantly to the Umpire's decision; he
does not fuss about between strokes,
nor has he the disconcerting and objectionable trick, which some players
have, of suddenly discovering that
he wants to chalk the handle of his
racquet, mop his forehead or take a
drink just at the moment when his
opponent is ready to serve. Needless
to say Freeman is popular with the
spectators who are unstinted in their
applause.
Of the other players seen here
Bruce Smith and Jordan have both
shown themselves to be first raters,
while Gilliat and Nyles have played
good tennis and fully justified their
entries.
In the unfinished stages of the contests I do not like to say much about
the ladies, but so far Miss Bell has
scored an unbroken series of victories, and her defeat of Miss Becket
has been the most sensational event
of the week. I cannot conclude these
brief notes without congratulating
the Committee on the popularity of
the present tournament and the public interest which it has evoked. This
has been evidenced by the largest attendances on record during the preliminary stages. Perhaps the best
judge of this is the caterer who told
me that from the opening day thc
attendance has been more like she has
usually provided for at the end of the
week. All of which must be very
gratifying, and should strengthen the
hands of the Committee in any project they may have in hand for the
acquisition of larger and more suitable grounds.

flDear  Sir,—I  would  like  to  bring
public  notice  one   of   the  worst
Irawbacks we have towards the tra-
tlling class of people,    ln the past
Iw months, with all the people that
ave  come to Victoria for  the day,
|eek, or month, as the case may be,
have heard the  remark,  time and
me again, Where can we get a drink
f  water?    Now   on   Sunday  where
in you get a drink of water? People
p not like to go into a confectionery
;ore and ask for a drink of water
fhen  soft  drinks  are  sold;  it  is  a
irink of water they want, not a soda
Irink.    Now we have in  Victoria a
pot that is ideal for such a purpose
S this, a water fountain, and it would
ot be only ornamental but a credit
d our city.   1 do not think it would
ost a great deal at that.    On the
orner of Belleville and Government
treet, opposite the parliament buildings, we have a piece of ground go-
Iig to waste and covered with that
Jetestable   grass   known  as   the  fox
ail.    Look  at  the  parliament buildings and the C. P. R. hotel and there
(midst all the splendor is a spot that
an  eyesore and discredit to Vic-
|oria the beautiful.    It  is a wonder
me  that this  has  not  been  suggested by some one before, which I
lon't think it has..   If the city would
let the weeds and grass cleaned off
I would not look so bad.   Now, sir,
you can make anything of the sug-
lestion and insert it into your paper,
think it would be a boost for Vic-
loria the Beautiful.
Hoping to see something of this
In your paper in the near future, i

A SKIN CREAM TEST.
Open Letter.
27th July, 1908.
fhe Mayor and Aldermen of the City
of Victoria, B.C.
Gentlemen,—Some   time   ago   the
torporation  gave  the   Natural   His-
lory Society permission to plant native  trees  and shrubs,  wild  flowers,
lte,  in  the portion  of  the  park  in
lhe    vicinity   of   the    South    Ward
bchool.   Since then the Natural His-
lory Society have been endeavouring
lo make this collection, but their efforts have been nullified by the fact
Ihat someone continually destroys the
plants, particularly  those planted in
Ihat portion of the park bordering on
lhe  drive,  from  Michigan  street  to
the  artificial bridge,  near  the  band-
fctand.   This is the place where some
^ears ago the Council placed a row
_tl Arbutus trees, which, however, all
lied.     The   next   year   the   Council
Iilanted them again,  but  again they
■died.   The Wildflower- Committee of
lhe Natural History Society have been
endeavoring  to  carry   out   this   idea
find have succeeded in making some
■of   the   trees   grow,   and   have   also
(planted a row of Dogwood trees thus
land though several of them have been
[pulled up many of them wcre growing
Ivery vigorously.   Sometime last week
I some person has been again at work
and  has   pulled   out   of  the  ground
Iseveral Arbutus trees, one very fine
lone   which   had   been   planted   two
lyears ago was growing strongly. They
Ihave also taken up some of the Dog-
Iwood trees.
I send you herewith one of the
Itrees, a young Dogwood, which I
(found pulled up and laid on the
■ground alongside the place where it
■had been growing. This will show
|you the mischief that is being done.
Next to this is a small Arbutus
[tree which had had a large rock
•placed on top of it, and so on. Such
■results to continued painstaking efforts are most disheartening.
Mr. England, the Park Superintendent, had been kind enough to havc
Ithese trees dug round and protected,
[but, if this spoliation is allowed to
[go on, the efforts of the Society and
ithe Park Superintendent will be ?
Jmere waste of time. I believe that
tin Vancouver the rule that no one
lis allowed to touch any ferns, plants
or  flowers  is  very  rigidly  enforced,

On Impressions
Science is making great strides in
every department, and possibly in
none more than in that which is devoted to the study of psychic force.
1 must confess that I am rather shy
of this pedantic pharaseology and
only resort to it because it is expressive.
More progress has been made in
connoting effects than in establishing causes, and it still remains, even
with respect to psychic force, that
"there are more things in heaven and
earth than are dream tof in our philosophy."
1 do not wish to apply this reflection to any profound study of human
nature, but circumstances which have
transpired during the present week
have aroused a train of thought and
I wish to register a few impressions.
I am thinking of the effect of personality. For instance, one passes
through a throng of people, or stands
for a few moments on the fringe of
a crowd, and yet in the briefest moment tliere is observation and distinct
impression. The looker on finds one
face attractive, another repulsive, but
between these two extremes there arc
many gradations of feeling. In order
to study character and to arrive at
any logical conclusion, we require
much data, we even like to go beyond
the point to which our powers of
observation carry us, and to glean information as to a man's antecedents,
occupations and disposition. But this
is going far beyond intuition, and
thc effect which one person produces
on another, by mere propinquity.
Why are we instantly attracted or
repelled by people who are absolute
strangers to us? We may not even
hear them speak, or witness any act,
which is an indication of character,
and yet from the features and at
times, even from their bearing we
make deductions instantaneously, and
often correct ones.
Upon these facts we must all agree,
but it would be interesting to know
why and how such impressions are
made and received. They are not
the result of a knowledge of human
nature, but are purely intuitive. Are
they not more than half magnetic,
and if so, what is that subtle elusive,
intangible medium which effects communication between the senses? Is it
something which may be correlated
with ether, and the wave theory?   Is
it possible that temperament and
character are effective in initiating a
species of a wireless telegraphy, which
involuntarily and unconsciously conveys the psychic message? Is the
appreciation wholly mental or wholly
physical, or does it partake of both?
In reflecting on these questions, the
word instinct naturally occurs to one's
mind. If science has demonstrated
anything it is that nature has provided man as it has provided tlie
lower animals with certain faculties
which in their appreciative and protective essence are more potent than
the logical brain which can only deduce from known data. If these reflections have any point, and I admit
that they are more or less random,
and almost altogether speculative,
they lead to the conclusion that in
judging character we are apt to become too much the slaves of reason
and are prone to disregard the
promptings of natural intuition.
This great faculty is necessarily developed to a higher degree in woman
than in man, and as a consequence
she makes far fewer mistakes in her
estimate of character. But I hark
back to my starting point, and reflect
on the unfailing interest afforded by
a study of crowds. Charles Lamb
loved a crowd, he maintained that it
was easier to be alone amid the thousands of people thronging the Strand
than in a deserted country lane. And
so he would thread his way
from Paternoster Row to Somerset
House, and pass perhaps ten thousand
of his fellows without appearing to
notice one. Indeed he did not even
look at them, nor could he describe
the appearance of a single person and
yet he imbibed the most marvellous
and profound impressions. He learned
to love the people, the common people, and to understand their joys and
sorrows, tlieir ambitions and their disappointments. He even acquired a
knowledge of their idiosyncrasies,
and exploited them in those inimitable and incomparable essays of Elia
for the delight of all ages. To use
a modern phrase, Charles Lamb must
have been a perfect "Medium," and
if the world knew and could define
the faculty which he possessed in so
large a degree and which enabled
him to know men and* their characteristics without observing them, it
would probably have solved a problem
which has baffled the wisest of men
in all ages.
bination to lift the Cup from the
banks of the Fraser River. Now that
the piece of silverware has been
brought across the Rockies it will be
an incentive for the Provincial teams
to get in and drill and endeavor to
grasp the mug. Already it has been
stated that next season will see a
combination of forces in Vancouver
and it can be taken for granted that
the Capital City will not be far behind.
Another defeat was handed out tc
the local baseball players on Saturday last when the Websters of Seattle
gave them a bumping to the tune of
7—i. With the exception of the
seventh innings it was good ball but
in this period the locals made sufficient errors and dumb plays to slve
the visitors five runs, which was
enough to put them so far ahead that
the locals were not dangerous. This
afternoon the locals are up against
the Athletes of Seattle. This team
has already been beaten once by the
locals and a determined effort will be
made to repeat the performance this
afternoon.
The defeat of the Victoria Cricket
Club at the hands of the Garrison,
came in the nature of a surprise and
the local exponents will have to buclc
up if they intend to win the championship tournament which takes
place this month. The Albions sprung
a big surprise on the present holders
of the championship and it will teach
them in future not to hold their rivals
too lightly. Over confidence is almost as bad as lack of confidence and
it was this that beat the visitors although the Albions played good
cricket and well deserve their victory.
Bobby Kerr, the champion sprinter,
was the only Canadian athlete to
make anything of a showing at the
Olympic games and he did it to perfection. Longboat, of whom great
tilings have been heard, is classed as
an also ran in the Marathon. Several
weeks ago I predicted that the Indian
would not be one, two, three and my
prediction has been borne out. Finer
grit has never been shown in sports
than was shown by the Italian runner in his effort to capture the great
race and after all it is too bad he
did not get it.

Comment.
After having held the Minto Cup
for the past seven years the Shamrocks of Montreal have at last been
defeated and it has remained for a
team from the West to do the trick.
The New Westminster Club deserves
great credit for the persistency in
which they have attempted to lift the
cup and that their efforts have now
been successful will in no small
measure make the easterners realize
that in the West they have players
worthy of special attention. I have
to acknowledge that I did not expect
the cup to come west, but now that
it has I will be one of the first to
extend congratulations to the Con-
quernig Heroes. The "champions of
the world" is no small title and I
know full well that the new holders
will defend the title in a manner that
will insure the cup a safe resting place
for some years.
Although the full accounts of the
matches have not come to hand the
press dispatches show that the challengers simply played the Shamrocks
off their feet in the start and after
that were never pressed. The team
that won the cup is with one or two
exceptions mainly youngsters who
have within the last couple of years
broken into the game and with careful handling they should be able to
play several years before they have
to hang up their sticks, but while the
present aggregation hangs together it
will take an exceptionally strong com-

NEW CARPETS
Fresh from the looms of such noted makers as "Crossley" and "Templeton" which is a guarantee of perfection in design,
materials and lengthy service—a vital point—for there is no real economy in carpet buying if the goods will not stand for
hard wear and plenty of it—you don't buy carpets every day; when you do buy carpets you want them to last and look
well—our carpets will last from the wedding day until the golden wedding day—and look well all the time. The latter
quality depends on your running a Bissell's over the carpet once or twice a week and occasionally giving them a thorough
cleaning in our carpet cleaning machine. We are proud of our carpets because they bring us hosts of customers—young
couples who have romped on Weiler's carpets in the old homes and ascertained the amount of hard wear they will stand.

[Notes From a Diary
11.
She was to sail at "six sharp" according to the Mate and he did his
west. He was not only mate but crew,
nnd was stowing away bales of strong
smelling hay, ascks of "chop feed''
tor cows, and boxes of groceries. The
forward part of the deck had been
lialf covered the night before with
long pieces of lumber of different
lengths, which stuck out in front in
most awkward and untidy manner;
Lnough to break the heart of auy
mate taking a pride in the way he
Jtowed his freight.
The captain appeared on the wharf
^t three minutes to six. "All ready,
jus?" eh enquired in a casual tone.
['All ready," came from the crew, as
|ic gave a last twist to a sack of beans
and sprang up the steps to the top
pf the deck-house. The captain came
cautiously down a ladder leaning at
In awkward angle from the wharf, to
lhe steamer's deck, and disappeared
Into the wheel-house. The engine-
loom bell rang twice, and the pro-
teller woke up and began to revolve
■lowly. The mate paid out the haw-
ler from the stern, the bows swung
Iway from the wharf, and then the
laptain came out and, with an oar,
lelped to get the hawser loop off the
lile end, and on board. We were
|ff, and it was half a minute past six.
A man put his head out of one of
lie cabin windows, and after look-
]ig round remarked that "this was
mother day," but his information be-
lig received with cold silence, he
lime out of his cabin with his boots
li his hand, and completed his toilet
|n deck.
We passed through the silent har-
|bur in the morning light, and stcam-
out into an oily sea which lost
itself in mist. A few small boats
were lying off some rocks, dimly
seen, with ligures in them which
might be fishing. The tide was running up strong, and long ribbons of
seaweed streamed and waved to ana
fro just under the surface of the
water. Smoke from burning seaweed
clung in wreaths round some small
rocky islands. The topsail of a cutter appeared above the mist on our
right, and the low rocky shore on
our left slipped slowly by as our engine thumped sulkily in its prison.
The mate, who seemed to be doing
the work of the world while all else
slept and dozed, began to clean the
deck with a broom and frequent pails
of water;, and that being accomplished to his satisfaction, he relieved
the captain at the wheel, and we went
to berakfast in the tiny cabin just
over the screw.
The captain developed a vein of
conversation with the ham and eggs
and fried liver, and when we again
sought the deck, prepared for that
great daily joy, the after-breakfast
pipe, was laying down the law and
his opinion on the Chinese question.
His treatment of the matter was simplicity itself. "Put a $500 tax on
every Chinaman and then let 'em
come if they want to."
About ten o'clock we were passing
along narrow channels among many
small islands heavily wooded with
dark firs, getting glimpses of clearings and farms. Then, making a
graceful curve to avoid some hidden
shoal, entered a long narrow harbor
with a little toy church, perched on
a rock, and a wharf at the upper
end.
The engine here seemed to think
we were near the end of our journey,
for the thumpings below became less
frequent, and at last we glided
through the calm waters with only
an occasional throb from the propeller. The captain whistled down the
tube in the wheel-house, and in a
gentle voice called to the depths the
name of "Harry," but could get no
answer. The Mate put on a look that
said plainly it was no affair of his,
and busied himself ostentatiously in
the bows tying a hand line to the loop
of the hawser. The captain, with a
doubtful air, went below to solve the
mystery, but returned quickly with
the news that "Harry was cleaning
the grate." There was nothing for it
but to wait till "Harry" chose to get
up steam again, which he presently
did, with the preliminary of a great
deal of black smoke from the funnel.
The propeller once more got to
work, and we neared the wharf at
full speed, with steam blowing off,
and the engine-room bell jingling imploringly.
A small boy whose fishing we interrupted, helped us to make fast, and the
captain, catching s/ght of someone on
the wharf with whom he seemed to
wish to avoid an interview, called
to the crew to "look sharp and get
that freight off," and dived into his
cabin. But the party in question,
whose freight it appeared had gone
astray, was not to be put off, and
the captain had to come out and have
explanations. The half dozen men on
the wharf, some coloured, some shewing traces of Indian blood, appeared
to have come chiefly to enquire after
"Gus's" health, and we soon left, taking away a few sacks of potatoes.
After leaving the bay and rounding
a low rocky promontory, where open
glades of bracken and groups of wind-
warped firs reached almost to the
water's edge, we entered another long
inlet of the sea, and here at our next
landing I left the steamer.
I shall never forget my first experience of the soft, drowsy, feeling in
the air of these British Columbia
islands. The sun was breaking
through a thin mist, flakes of which
were lying on the surface of the water
or clinging in long wisps to the hillsides; here displaying the firs in
dashes of gold and purple, tliere
shrouding all in silvery grey. The
white road wound round the head of
the bay, bounded by a wood-rail fence,
half concealed by small fir and cedar,
briar rose and wild gooseberry
bushes, and dust-covered bracken.
I soon met an oldish man seated
behind a fat horse, and enquired of
him the way to a friend I had come
to visit. He began to direct me in
broad Devonshire but broke off to say
that if I would wait a few minutes he
would be back and give me a lift on
my way. As the road was hot and
dusty 1 thanked him, and sat down
on a small knoll overlooking the bay.
The view was delightful. The wave-
less surface of the sea lay before me
bright with the noonday sun. Low
purple hills, some mist still lying in
their hollows, stretched away on
either hand till they melted into the
blue of distant islands. The steamer
I had come by was rounding a point
of land about three miles off, leaving
a trail of brown smoke across the
pale violet sky. Near me great firs
growing on the edge of the cliff
leaned over the water thirty feet below. When the fat horse returned I
mounted beside the driver aud we proceeded at a slow jog along thc road.

Victoria City
Kennel Club.
(By Canine)
Who amongst the real members of
the Kennel Club but has had some
f.eeling of disappointment that its
achievements have fallen short of its
actual aims and intentions as laid
down in the Club's Constitution. The
successful furtherance of all matters
connected with dogs, the improvement of the breed, their care, management, training and the disseminating of useful knowledge in canin-
ology (amongst those whose regret is
that they have not had much chance
here of acquiring enough knowledge
to enable them to know a Borsoi
from a Skye) the co-operation and
mutual help amongst members; these
are all part of the programme. And
an annual show should be the result
and evidence of the year's work to
own dogs.
All these might come before the
Kennel Club for discussion and the
adoption of remedies and prevention
of these evils.
The "bon cameradie" which exists
all the world over amongst dog fanciers and which levels class and society distinctions is the greatest aid
to the success of any Kennel club—
the common cause—the good of the
Club, the reputation of its smallest
member—these are ever kept in view
and promote unity and strength and
then comes success.
If the Kennel Club had been a
power, had lived up to its intentions
and had fulfilled the hopes of its
friends all these years Victoria would
have been spared the humiliation of
seeing its own elected municipal
rulers made a laughing stock in a
well meant attempt to improve matters too vast for them.

The Victoria City Kennel Club has
outgrown its infancy. It has been a
prominent and popular institution for
a dozen years or so, although its present title or designation has only been
borne for the last seven.
A perusal of its premium lists and
dog show catologues embracing the
period covered by the present organisation is full of interest and recalls
victories and defeats of many of our
best representative dogs and brings to
mind many of those pleasurable little
incidents which happened in the times
when—well, we will spare the poor
town council!
The Kennel Club's efforts have always been up-hill, and that it has
continued in the field to face indifference, apathy and ignorance, and
that it is now of mature age to gratifying to those who have supported
it and will be an inducement to many
newcomers to rally round tis standard.
The ideal Kennel Club, however, is
something larger in its scope and
sphere of influence than a Dog Show
Club and with all kindliness of intention the question may be asked of the
club: "Are you a Dog Show Club or
a Kennel Club?" There is a difference. The time is fitting for this
question and it is suggested that, as
it might be inconvenient to alter the
name or designation of the club, the
club should change its policy and
work so as to entitle it to its present
name—so that it may be a power in
the land—respected by all—a terror
to dog thieves, and to all who indulge
in dishonest or dishonourable actions
in regard to matters canine—so that
it may be thought an honour to be a
member and a still higher one to be
put on the committee, so that the
town council may ask if they may be
allowed to join, so that it may be
what it can be and what Victorians
want it to be.
Time and Eternity.
On one occasion, when in Congress,
General Benjamin F, Butler rose in
his place and intimated that the member who occupied the floor was transgressing the limits of debate.
"Why, General," said the member,
reproachfully, "you divided your time
with me."
"I know I did," rejoined Butler,
grimly, "but I didn't divide eternity
with you."
"Paul, will you please go to his
room and see if your grandpa is
asleep?"
"Yes, mother," softly said Paul on
his return, "he's all asleep 'cept his
nose."
