E PROBLEM
?he article in the last issue of The
ek  dealing with  the  subject of land
anient in British Columbia has been
ely discussed, and has brought a nuin-
jf suggestions to The Week office and
uj" requests that the subject be dealt
li at greater length. There are two
sen that can be discussed with advant-
especially as reliable data is obtain-
; and any statements made in these
nuns can readily be checked.   The first
to do with the scarcity and cost of
)ur as restricting settlement and reduc-
the profits of the producer. On the
ject of labour, much might be said,
leed, it is a vexed problem, and even
se who have studied it closely are at
iance.    Agricultural labour is so scarce
so dear that the average farmer either
s without altogether, or secures a little
[stance at intervals. This is especially
e of fruit farms; and explains why,
fen picking-time comes, so much of the
remains ungathered. It is the same
li fruit as with grain on the prairies;
harvest period extends over a short
e; labour is wanted in a rush; there
lot sufficient available in the country,
tliere are no arrangements whatever
bringing in fruit-pickers.
hie would think the same course might
followed as in England, where women
young people from the cities are only
glad to   go   fruit-picking and   hop-
dug;  but the economic conditions are
rely different.   The bread-winner gets
h high wages that there is no necessity
the wife or children to help, and if the
h must be told, there are very few boys
girls in British Columbia who would
think it beneath their dignity to en-
3 in an occupation of this kind.  Tliere
the same disinclination to do this class
work as to enter domestic service, and
hopeless to expect any relief from the
ies.   Mow, then, is the requirement to be
.   Clearly, there is only oue solution,
mining ahvays that public opinion will
t sanction Oriental immigration,—and
it is, to settle permanently on the land
agricultural  population  that will  be
fficient for its own requirements; a popu-
ion whicii will be content to stay on the
id, and which, as it grows, will provide
ildren accustomed to the duties of farm
e, and probably also attract in increasing
mbers young men who will be content
th a countiy life and a farm labourer's
tees.
It. may lie taken for granted that there
e none such in Canada, but there are
any  such   iu   England    and   Scotland,
icy cannot, however, be caught singly;
ey will have to be brought out in muni's, so that the dreadful feeling of isola-
in that has hitherto proved so fatal  to
e development of our country districts
iy be overcome,   lu short, to be periuan-
tly successful in developing an agricul-
ral population, we shall have to repro-
ce in all its most important aspects the
ral life of the  Mother  Land, with its
minimal and social features, self-contain-
I in all its requirements, and therefore
gsessing those elements whicli will lead
i  natural  increase of population  anil
provision of a class of labour which,
he opinion of The Week, will not other-
;e be obtainable.    This cannot be done
thout Government  assistance.    In  the
t place, the financial undertaking is too
vy for any private company; and, in
next place, it requires Government co-
ration to inspire confidence in the ini-
>'rant.   There has been so much decep-
i,  and so much misrepresentation  of
conditions of life in Canada, that the
lrable class in the Old Country is holing wary.   It will be possible to secure
e people in large numbers only by a
scheme in whicii the Imperial Government
and the Provincial Government will cooperate as a guarantee of bona fides and
of adequate provision and protection for
those who can be induced to abandon their
homes and strike out a new path in a new
world.
It is all very well to talk of the superior
advantages Canada affors; of the magnificent resources of the country, and of the
bright future assured to industry and
thrift. This is all perfectly true, but we
too often lose sight of the sentimental considerations that weigh with every emigrant
from his Mother Land. It means a great
wrench, however bright the prospects may
be—a wrench that has proved too great
for many who have been sought. It is one
thing for the down-trodden peasants of
Galicia and other European provinces,
who have lived for centuries under the
iron heel of a despot, and who have led
harder lives than animals are permitted to
lead in the New World, to break away
from a country in which they have known
nothing of freedom, contentment or happiness. But it is an entirely different thing
for the peasants of England and Scotland,
who, however, poor, are attached to their
honies because they have known nothing
of oppression and have learned to believe
(as they have a right to) that after all
tliere is no land on earth like the Mother
hand. It was such considerations as these
that led Mr. Lloyd George, who visited
the Prairie Provinces 10 years ago at the
head of a deputation of Welshmen, to decide against bringing out his fellow countrymen, and to ni]) in the bud an important
colonization scheme which the Government
and the C. P. R. had under negotiation.
It is this factor that has been overlooked
in all the colonization schemes hitherto
submitted to the Provincial Government.
But with the guarantee afforded by a joint
scheme to which the Home and the Ii. 0.
Government are partners such considerations would fall to the ground, and the
said guarantee would inspire confidence, as
well as solve the financial problem; and
The AVeek urges that negotiations shall be
opened up between the two Governments
with this end in view.
The other phase of the question, which
demands prompt and serious attention, has
to do with the distribution and marketing
of agricultural products. A number of
facts were given in our hist issue, shewing
how unprofitable fanning aud fruit-growing are under existing conditions, and
pointing out that the providing of improved transportation facilities would be
an important factor in ameliorating these
conditions; but of scarcely less importance
is the subject of marketing. At present,
most of the fruit is turned over to commission bouses, which have no interest iu
securing the best possible market or the
best possible price for the producer, because it often pays them belter to handle
imported instead of home-grown fruit, iu
which case they do uot hesitate to sacrifice
the interests of the local grower. Many a
funnel' from the Saanich district has
driven into Victoria with a load of fruit
to find that the local commission bouses
would not take it from him at any price;
or that he could put it into stock and take
his chance; or that he might, if he chose,
accept a nominal price, and all this whilst
large quantities of imported fruit was being sold by the same houses It has been
demonstrated beyond doubt that there is no
fruit superior to that grown in this Province. The recent exhibition in Vancouver
has removed the last possible doubt on
the subject; and there should be some
means of ensuring the local market for the
local product. It is a fact that whilst
hundreds of tons of splendid fruit wen-
rotting in the orchards near to Victoria, it
is hardly possible to buy fruit of any kind
in Prince Rupert and other Northern
towns; but it would require an expert investigation to determine to what extent the
commission houses in pursuance of their
own selfish interests are strangling a native
industry. There is every reason to believe
that such an investigation would reveal a
system of combination as ruthless and destructive as that which has characterized
the actions of the American Trusts.
It must not be supposed that this system
of combination is in any sense confined to
the commission houses that handle the fruit
crop; it pertains in other branches of equal,
if not greater, importance, and accounts to
an extent of which few people have any
knowledge for the high cost of living in
A'ictoria and Vancouver. It applies directly to meat, poultry, lish, fruit, and last
but by no means least, to fuel. This latter
item is one which calls for prompt attention and drastic action. No one begrudges
the colliery operator a fair and even a
handsome profit, having regard to the risky
character of his investment; but coal at
$T..")0 in Victoria and Vancouver is out of
all reason. Coal at $4.50 f. o. b. is high,
to say the least; and yet it is a well known
fact that one of the largest enterprises at
the Coast has recently tried to induce the
other producers to join a combination for
raising prices. The late (-apt. Tatlow was
not a little incensed at the high price of
fuel, and declared more than once that
the subject would have to receive the attention of the Government. The mere
suggestion of a possible increase in price
should lead to some steps being taken to
render this a matter of impossibility. As
to the price of cordwood at $7..">0 a cord,
when much of it is simply driftwood procured from the local beaches, The Week is
not prepared to say whether Victorians
consider the price excessive or not. It is.
at any rate, double the figure of a few
years ago. The Week will gladly welcome
suggestions, and will be pleased to receive
information bearing on the various points
raised in this article. It will be generally
admitted that the cost of living has
reached such a pitch that something must
be done. To the extent to whicii this is
ilue to natural causes, no doubt wc shall
have to grumble and bear it. In such
cases, time is the only cure, hut to the
extent to whicli it is due to artificial causes,
to unfair competition, and to such conditions as can be removed by the Government, there will lie a general consensus of
opinion that the remedy should be applied.
THE MAYORALTY
The Week congratulates the citizens of
A'ictoria on the probability of being able
to secure Mr. W, E. Oliver us a candidate
for the .Mayoralty. This is the lirst paper
to bring Mr. Oliver prominently before the
public, for, although he has lived in 'In-
city many years and lias large and growing interests, he is a man of such extreme
modesty that he has not been heard of to
any extent, except when be was accustomed to rout the City representatives in connection wilb some matter that cropped up
between the Municipality of A'ictoria and
that of Oak Bay. At such times people
realized that the quiet man who represented the smaller interest was more than a
match for the big guns whom he bad lo
meet. During the last municipal campaign, when Mr. Oliver was a candidate
and would have won but for lhe family of
the liquor interests in openly supporting
Mr. .Ino. A. Turner. Mr, Oliver gained
many friends by the able and lucid manner in whicli he handled public questions
and by the entire absence of personal feeling of self-seeking with which he conducted his campaign. Since then A'ictoria has
bad another tasle of the Morley regime,
and is both wiser and sadder than ever.
The element upon whicli Mr. Morley lias
chiefly relied has found him out (as was
generally expected) and now we havc the
spectacle of the Ministerial Association—
whicii may fairly be regarded as the
official organization at the head of the reform movement—waiting upon Mr. Oliver
and urging him to enter the field. There
is little doubt but that if he accedes to the
request of a large number of leading citizens and influential business men who
have signed a requisition he will be electe-1
by a substantial majority, whoever his opponents may be. A'ictoria has had enough
of freak mayors and professional reformers. Under no circumstances will it
lie induced to accept an avowed protege of
the liquor interests. It has no desire to
fight out the issue on a political basis. In
Mr. Oliver it would have a mayor who
would be strictly non-political; who makes
no claim to being either better or worse
than his fellow men; who has demonstrated that he is a man of great administrative
and executive ability; and who is so circumstanced that he has nothing to gain by
securing the position, except the very honourable and laudable ambition to serve his
fellow citizens. If Mr. Oliver can be
induced to accept the nomination, The
AVeek bespeaks for him the hearty support of all who desire to see A'ictoria
prosper.
THE RAINBOW
The Times, in a flight of imagination
whieh rarely illumines its editorial columns, compares the advent of 11. II. C. S.
Rainbow to the appearance of the rainbow promised iu the sky. The simile may
be a little far-fetched, and possibly more
poetical than practical. It just depends
upon what the Times means. If it contents itself with premising that, as a realization of the fondest desires of those who
wished to see*Canada take some step in
the direction of Imperial naval defence
the Rainbow is evidence that their views
have obtained, then we are on common
ground and there is little demur to the
illustration. If, however, the Times
wishes in any way to emphasize the importance of the Rainbow as a contribution
to the Imperial Navy, all that can be said
is that many people will prefer to wait and
see before they say much. An old-timer,
who is one of tbe best known men in Victoria, facetiously remarked on .Monday
that "half of the Canadian .Navy bad arrived at Esquimalt"; and no doubt his
observation voices the thoughts of a great
many people. The Colonist and the Times
both say that lhe arrival of the Rainbow is
au historic event. Indeed, the former says
ii is epochal, which is a \i'\'\ different
tiling. At any rate, this much may be
said that everybody will lie glad ut even
lhe faint dawnings of intelligence on the
pari of the Canadian Government as manifested in the acquisition of tlie Niobe and
the Rainbow; and most people will also
bold that the Government will be able to
direct and control ils infant Navy with
far greater success than has hitherto characterized its management of its Military
affairs.
FEDERAL POLITICS
Affairs in Quebec are becoming exciting, and all eyes nre turned towards the
Province which fifteen years ago gave a
French-Canadian Premier to Canada. The
Week is not concerned with that phase of
the subject which is being so vigorously
discussed iii the Eastern press as to how
tar Conservatives are rejoicing at lhe victory of Air. Bourassa and his friends. The
Week believes thnt Conservatives ■inhuman, and that il would he asking loo
much of Conservative or Liberal that they
should refrain from a feeling of intense
(Continued mi Page !)) THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1910
At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNQER
The Rainbow has arrived and thc
jolly tars are being received on all
sides with a hearty enthusiasm—but,
that is when they come up town. Due
notice was given in the daily press
that the nucleus of our Canadian
Navy on the Pacilic Coast would arrive on Monday last, and it appeared
to be the general opinion that a large
crowd would assemble at Esquimalt
to witness the arrival. The opinion
indeed seemed to be so general that
everyone left this duty to his neigh*
bottr, and according lo an eye-witness
the assembled multitudes at the Naval
Harbour on this historic occasion
numbered some two dozen people.
However, our good friend, the Victoria Times, kept up the bluff and assured its readers that the casting of
the anchor was witnessed by many
hundreds; the Colonist, more modestly, speaks of a "small crowd"; the
Lounger, though he was unable to bc
there himself as he had other duties
to attend to, prefers to refer to "the
mere handful." What on earth is the
good of pretending to an enthusiastic
loyalty, if such be shown by assembling in crowds to watch the arrival
of the first of Canada's Navy on the
Pacific Coast, when it is well known
that most people confined their loyalty to their lips. I myself cannot see
that the mere flocking down for such
a purpose is any proof of loyalty; to
me it smacks more of curiosity. An
official welcome on the part of the
Dominion and Provincial Governments had been arranged and Mayor
Morley effectively represented the
City of Victoria in this same function.
The main body of the citizens were
content to feel that the opportunity
afforded on Thursday night, when
they could more effectively show by
their personal salutations how wei
come was the arrival of the Rainbow,
was ample for thc purpose. And in
this opinion I am inclined to agree
What I cannot understand is the necessity which other papers found to
pretend the existence of a crowd
which on the credible authority of an
eye-witness,  an  old  newspaper  man
himself, was non-existent.
* *     *
It seems to me an extraordinary
thing that in the account printed of
the reception to the Welsh Ladies'
Choir the name of Mr. A. Petch
should have been omitted. Seeing
that the gentleman referred to was
the founder of the Welsh Society
in this town and that he is its present
President, such an omission becomes
grotesque. In all such accounts thc
names of some more or less prominent persons are almost bound to be
left out, but it is seldom that the
omission embraces such an important
figure as thc President of the principal society to which reference is being made.

Oh, chortle, yc gods and little fishes.
Hear ye of the latest comedy perpetrated by the Family Journal of the
Pacific Coast. Know ye first of all
that after many years' pow-wow it
has been definitely decided to hold a
dinner at thc Empress Hotel on January 21st of next year for Old Public-
Schoolmen. It should not require the
eye of a sage to scc nor the brain
of one to understand that such an announcement means that attendance at
thc banquet is limited to those men
in the Province who can claim to havc
been at some recognized school in the
Old Country. But thc Family Journal apparently knows not thc meaning
of thc term "Public-Schoolman," anu
in its issue of November Sth solemnly
prints the following, much to the
amusement of the initiated, as well as
to you, yc gods and little fishes:

In connection with the forthcoming
dinner I am authorised to say that
evening dress will be entirely optional. Doubtless there will be many
present in war-paint, but the still
larger majority who have lost their
evening dress suits "by the hand of
God or the King's enemies" need
havc no fear that they will be conspicuous if they appear, as it is hoped
they will appear, in ordinary morning apparel. Incidentally, Mr. Sherwood spells his name with an "c".

From an item in the Victoria Times
of the 8th inst. it would appear that
the Y.M.C.A. is as bigoted as the
average Christian Church. I gather
from thc note referred to that certain
denominations which are included in
the Christian Church, that is to say,
they worship the name "Lord and
Master of all" arc to bc barred from
the privileges of the Y.M.C.A. because, forsooth, they do not happen
to belong to other denominations. I
sincerely trust that I may have misunderstood thc meaning of thc short
paragraph, and that, if I have, someone will correct me, in which case I
shall be glad to "take it all back" next
week. But it misdoubts me; and if
my surmise be correct, then—well,
words fail me to express my opinion
of such action.
* •*-.     *
On Sunday night last there was a
crowd in View Street, blocking up
the entrances from Broad and Douglas. I did not see it myself, being
at the Socialist Meeting at the New
Grand Theatre, but 1 am told by
men who wcre present that it equalled
the fiercest crush in which they had
ever found themselves. The occasion
was the giving of a Free Concert
(collection inside) by thc Welsh
Ladies Choir. I havc been told that
women fainted; that clothes were
torn, and that one little girl in her
father's arms had her shoes and
stockings torn off before thc two managed to gain an entrance. All of
which things were true. I was also
told that this state of affairs was due
to gross mismanagement on the part
of thc Manager of the Victoria
Theatre, who had advertised that the
doors would open at seven. It was
insinuated that thc doors were kept
closed in order to allow Church folk
who desired to preserve appearances
but were willing to "cut" thc sermon
in order to have the privilege of attending this concert. Having heard
all this I determined to test thc truth
and I find that all these latter things
are absolutely false.    There was no
definite advertisement published: a
short notice in Saturday night's Times
stated that there would be a concert.
On the previous Friday night Mr.
Denham from the platform stated that
the doors- would be opened at eight
o'clock and that the concert would
start at 8.30. There was no private
entrance opened and the reason that
the gallery door remained closed so
long was in accordance with an invariable rule of the house under such
circumstances, viz.: that this door be
not opened until the rest of the house
be filled. If there bc anyone who has
reason to feel aggrieved and to doubt
these statements let him produce any
advertisement which assured him that
the doors would open before the time
stated, or give any other contradiction to the above stated facts. It is
an undoubted fact that there was a
crowd, but one can hardly fail to
think that this was entirely due to
the Victorian's love of "getting something for nothing"; and this is thc
more evident when it is taken into
consideration that the whole collection panned out at about 15 cents per
head; and this for the privilege of
hearing the finest choir that has visited Victoria for many a long day.
*     *     *
At the same time one can't help
thinking how such an incident illustrates the great desire that the majority of residents have for something
to do on Sunday evening other than
going to Church. As I said above, I
attended the Socialist Meeting, and
the New Grand Theatre was pretty
well filled. There were hundreds of
others walking up and down the
streets, listless and bored to death.
"There is something rotten in the
State of Denmark" when such a state
of things is allowed to exist. The majority of people WON'T go to church,
and rather than provide them with
healthy, regular Sunday evening
amusements the Church, or her more
rabid supporters, prefer to see them
idling away their time, forgetting
good old Dr. Watts' warning, that
"Satan finds some mischief still,
For idle hands to do."
Bah! the hypocrisy of the thing. I
came across a case only the other day
where a shining light and a pillar of
some half-recognized denomination
had no hesitation in sending down his
hired sevrant, and that a lad of tender
years, with drugs and medicines and
such like into the under-world, where
he was confronted with every form of
vice. But that man called himself a
Christian and condemned the man

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
The Victoria Theatre
Seldom indeed has such a galaxy of
lent been gathered together within
ie limits of a single week at the Vic-
iria Opera House. Manager Denim is to be congratulated on having
:en able to offer his patrons such
1 unique combination of music,
tighter and tears as he has done this
eek.
The Royal Welsh Ladies Choir
This concert was being eagerly
oked forward to by many music
vers, and though it is safe to say
lat none were disappointed it is still
ore safe to say that the majority
ere literally taken off their feet by
ic excellence of this world-famous
fgregation of singers. "Poor Wanting One" was perhaps the gem of
e evening, but where all was supcr-
ne it is invidious to make selections,
iffice it to say that the Royal Welsh
adies Choir, whether at the Theatre
i Friday night, or at the Methodist
etropolitan Church on Sunday, or
jain at the Theatre on Sunday even-
g, gave more than every satisfaction
id those who were unable to hear
em may well regret their dilatori-
tss.
The World and His Wife
On   Monday  evening  last   Mr.   H.
oopcr   Cliff  submitted   the  popular
ay entitled   "The   World   and   His
rife" at the Victoria Theatre.    The
ay, whilst somewhat improbable in
ime of its features, is intensely dra-
atic and therefore interesting.   It is
rtain  that in  real life  there never
as a woman just like Donna Teo-
)ra and probably not a man like Don
than, but then as the admirable actor
r. Frank Hollins, who played Capt.
eaulieu,   frequently   remarked,   the
ay  was  Spanish  and  just   what  a
janish gentleman might do is fairly
matter of doubt.    .1 am inclined to
link that the production would have
;cn better entitled "Much Ado About
othing."   All thc honours were cared off by Mr. Cooper Cliff, who pre-
ented one of the most finished and
npressivc  stage  portraits  seen  here
or a long time.    He was fairly well
upportcd by Mr. William Faversham
nd Miss Julie Opp; the former, how-
ver, has been completely spoilt for
erious drama by the posturings and
osings which he adopted whilst play-
g in "The Squaw Man" and kindred
icturcsque and bizarre dramas. The
idy looked "elegant" and acted fairly
well,  but  she  would   hardly  melt  a
leart  of  stone  and at  the  end  one
:ould hardly help feeling just a touch
_>{   sympathy   for   Don   Ernesto   in
.vhose arms fate, or rather a Spanish
slay-wright,   forced   her   to   shelter.
Truly the dearth of good plays still
jontinues.
The Kissing Girl
On Tuesday night an amusing little
)Iay as above entitled appeared at the
Victoria Theatre. It is a fair criticism to say that thc chorus were a
ittlc weak in their voices, that they
made up for this by thc excellence ot
their costumes, whilst the scenery was
above praise. Altogether "The Kissing Girl" may be said to have scored
i success and the very fair attendance
testified to their appreciation in no
half-hearted manner.
The Girl, the Man and the Game
On Wednesday night a merry little
omedy  was  played  at  the  Victoria
Theatre  with  Billy "Single"  Clifford
n the star part.   T am inclined, however, to think that thc honours were
carried off by Mr. Jack Trainor who,
is Uncle Cattermole, proved himself
i comedian of no mean order.    It is
somewhat   difficult   to   see   on   what
grounds Mr. Clifford bases his claims
o head-lines, for with the exception
f his pas de setil in  which his hat
ayed the most prominent part, his
erformance was mediocre in   .ie ex-
reme.   Miss Devon has a pretty voice
nd uses it well.    Of thc play itself
ttle can be said.    Neither the stag-
ng nor the costumes were of a very
igh order, but the fair-sized audience
cut   away   seemingly   well   pleased
-ith the musical absurdity which they
ad witnessed.
The Matinee Idol
It is the unanimous consensus of
opinion that the above play, presented
at the Victoria Theatre on Thursday
last, is by far the best of its kind
that has appeared on those boards for
many years. Staging, scenery, costumes were excellent. De Wolf Hopper appeared at his best and half the
male portion of the audience lost
their hearts to the chorus. The show-
was first-class in every way.
-   The New Grand Theatre
It seems too much to ask Messrs.
Considine & Sullivan to give three
"cracker-jack" shows in succession.
During the present week the New
Grand theatre has not been running
an Al show. Alf. Camm, the ventriloquist, is by far the cleverest man on
this week's stage, and as a ventriloquist he is excellent and extremely
clever. There arc few ventriloquists
who are sure enough of themselves
to submit to a close observation, but
Mr. Camm does not hesitate to walk
amongst the audience with his manni-
kin. But, and it is a big "but," on thc
night I saw him, he had not realized
that Victoria is a little more particular
than the States and here we do not
appreciate expectoration vulgarity.
This appears to be one of the highest
forms of humour in the States. It is
seldom that comedians from the other
side appear on our boards without
making their piece de resistance the
spitting in the other man's eye. It
may be funny, and I am sorry and sad
to say that many of our people laugh;
but it does not appeal to me; neither
does it appeal to the majority of the
audience. Hallen & Fuller have been
presenting the usual comedy which is
well up to the average. The other
turns have been mediocre in the extreme.
The Lyceum Theatre
The Bonham Robinson Comedy
Company have succeeded the E. C.
Hart Comedy Company at the Johnson Street theatre. I fancy that I
must* havc caught them on a bad
night as there appeared to be some
discrepancy between the pianist and
his instrument and between both of
them and the chorus. Of the play
I can say little. It was entitled "Fads
and Fancies," but it might just as well
have been called anything else. Miss
Iva Walker has a very sweet voice
and with a decent accompanist would
make a great hit. There was an intensely humorous scene with Messrs.
Bonham, Matchin and McHaney as
principals. No doubt, when the present company feel more settled in
their new surroundings they will succeed as well as their predecessors in
creating that wholesome laughter
which is the secret of long life.
The Majestic Theatre
One of the best Moving Picture
shows that I have witnessed in a ten-
cent house was en evidence last Monday night at The Majestic Theatre.
To start with, it seemed to me that
there were more films than usual and
of a vastly superior quality. "On-
anka," an Indian picture, was excellent, and in the other presentations
drama and comedy wcre well intermingled.
Romano's Theatre
Another Western drama of the type
which has proved so popular in Victoria has been "Red Wing and Thc
White Girl." People never seem to
get tired of these pictures and well
they may not, when they are up to
the standard of excellence which is
always observable at Romano's
Theatre.
The Crystal Theatre
"ln thc Days of '49" was a thrilling
drama pn sentcd on thc screen of the
Broad Street house during thc early
part of the week. It was if possible
above thc average of the films with
which thc enterprising management
at present conducting thc entertainments at this popular house, havc
been delighting their audiences. 1
never leave The Crystal but that 1
feel sorry that the show is over and
without looking forward to the day
after to-morrow when a fresh set of
films will appear.

THE LOOSE END
BY BOHEMIAN
Much has been said, ancl still more
written, about thc Englishman in Canada. Not so very long ago he wus
regarded cither as a rogue or a fool,
aud more often than not as a combination of both. If he happened to be
in receipt of regular sums of money
from home he was promptly dubbed
"Remittance Man," and regarded as
some inferior kind of animal to bc
preyed upon at such times as thc
money was due and to be severely
left alone for the balance of the year.
If hc was travelling for pleasure as a
tourist he was a person to be fawned
upon and flattered to his face, and to
be sneered at behind his back. Occasionally thc biter was bitten, and
doubtless there are many who can
remember instances where the guileless Englishman was just one too
many for thc wily North American,
But such cases havc been few and far
between, and for the most part the
average Englishman in Canada, until
quite lately, has been looked upon as
one to be courted so long as he has
money in his pocket and to bc thrown
aside when he is "broke," as a helpless, unadaptable, rather conceited and
altogether somewhat undesirable individual.
That was only a few years ago.
Vv e havc all of us seen advertisements in the press asking for help
and distinctly saying that no Englishman need apply. And doubtless the
advertiser was quite right in so wording  his  advertisement.    There  were
too many "black sheep" in the country. Helpless younger sons and hopeless ne'er-do-wells, who wcre shipped
out   from   the   Old   Country   in   the
hopes  that  they, like  Mr.  Micawber,
I would    find   something   turning   up,
I were fairly numerous.    It took a long
i time for these men to accustom themselves to thc change of environment,
Ito different customs and habits. They
tell a good story in the States about
ian English tourist who expressed his
I great admiration for the country but
regretted   the   fact   that   there   was.
| nothing antique about the place. "You
havc no old ruins here," hc said. "Oh,
yes,  we  havc," answered his  Yankee
guide;    "wc    havc    the    Remittance
Men."
But, other times, other customs, and
now-a-days the old-fashioned Remittance Man is somewhat out of date.
Plenty of men come out to this new
country who are in receipt of money
from home, whether it be in thc form
of an allowance from their people, or
in the form of interest on their own
capital, and thc majority of these men
use it in hclpingnfo develop the land
of their adoption. It is more and
more becoming a':'fact that they adopt
thc land, instead of letting the land
adopt them.       %.
1 have a cascA my mind's eye; in
fact it was this particular case whicii
suggested to me the idea for this
article. A young fellow whom 1
know, from thc same school as myself, of good family and with a certain amount of capital, spent the first
two or three years after his education was completed in travelling. Hc
saw all that there was to be seen
and then made up his mind that it
would be a good idea to invest some
of his money in land. Hc selected
the Cariboo District, bought a large
ranch and started in to make improvements. Today, he tells me, hc
can sell that ranch at a big profit,
but he prefers to keep it. Hc employs
a man there to act as manager during his own absence, hc is steadily improving his property, he is getting a
good return on his capital invested,
and at the same time he is doing his
share towards opening up the district.
This is only one example. At the
present time there are hundreds of
Englishmen of the same calibre who
are doing exactly thc same sort of
thing. Possibly they don't all rise at
five o'clock in thc morning and work
with their own hands till eight o'clock
at night, but they arc investing their
capital in thc country and showing
their faith in its future thereby.
I have used the word "Englishman"
with a purpose, because neither the
Scotchman nor thc Irishman, nor yet
thc Welshman has ever suffered from
the same opprobrium that has fallen
upon the devoted head of the unfortunate denizen of thc sister nation.
Thc "canny Scot" has always fallen
on his feet; it is a tradition with him,
and hc has never yet betrayed that
tradition. Thc "genial Pat." makes
friends wherever he goes, and from
being a section man on the North
American Continent hc has now assumed thc proud position of being its
"boss." "Taffy" is a wiry worker.
But thc Englishman on his lirst arrival always seems to bc at a loose
end. However these loose ends are
joining up and today the Englishman
is a welcome immigrant, for his compatriot of thc old days, whom one
always associates with the delightful
stories of thc late R. L. Stevenson,
has become almost a thing of thc
past.

MEXICO!
The Greatest Mining Country in the World
Stands First in Silver, and Third in Gold Production
We are Largely Interested in one of the Richest Gold Producing Districts in the
State of Sonora* Should you desire full information call and see us* Mr. Hind
a well known Victoria Engineer gives the following report of his investigations:
Victoria, B. C, 6th August, 1910.
TO  THE V. SONORA MINING SYNDICATE,  Victoria:
Gentlemen,—I beg to report that I have at your request completed an investigation covering a large area of
the District of Altar, State of Sonora, in the Republic of
Mexico, having particular reference in such work to the
Placer Fields and existing conditions of the District.
I find that there are a number of there fields, the best
known being The Las Palomas, San Perfecto, Las Norias,
Quitobac, Sonoyta, La Cieniguilla, Boludo, San Rafael,
Santa Rosa, La Durasno and several smaller ones.
These placers are by no means a new discovery, but
have been worked for probably 200 years, as is evidenced
by the profusion of old shafts, surface workings, ancient
towns and other signs of one-time activity.
A number of these fields were visited and the ground
inspected, and in every instance it is interesting to note
that there is a system of gold-bearing quartz veins in the
hills of the vicinity, these without doubt being the feeders for the placer grounds.
The general conditions have been eminently favorable
for the erosion of these veins, and in fact such erosion has
taken place to the extent of probably hundreds of feet.
During this process of erosion the gold liberated from the
veins has been deposited with the gravels on the lower
benches, thus forming deposits of varying values and
thickness, and subsequently owing to he presence of lime
in the percolating waters a gradual process of cementation has taken place, and it is owing to this cementing
that only a comparatively small amount of the deposits
have been worked.
From the earliest days of the country the Yaqui and
Papago Indians have been prosecuting their search for
the yellow metal, and in the District there art thousands
of acres that have been worked over by them down to the
cemented gravels. Owing to their lack of machinery and
appliances they were only able to work the loose surface
deposits, or such portions of the cements as were abnormally rich, and whilst there are no records of the amounts
taken out that can be relied upon, it is estimated that
hundreds of millions of dollars have been won.
So far as it is possible to judge the conditions in the
cemented gravels have been practically the same as in the
loose overburden, in which case it is conceded that the
majority of these known fields will give large returns
when these cements are worked.
Owing to the lack of water, and the difficulty so far
experienced in satisfactory dry crushing, there has been
but little real work done in recent years, or at any rate
until, at Boludo, Mr. Mitt Quenner devised his pulverizer.
This is a revolving barrel-shaped grizzly, on trommels, the inside being fitted with steel hammers or slugs
on chain links and attached to the centre shaft, and revolving at high speed.
This machine breaks the cements from the rock or
boulders, and a portion of the latter is ejected as valueless, thus making a preliminary concentration of values,
and the cement and finer particles of rock are pulverized
and the gold freed. The resultant pulp is then treated
by being run over a "dry washer," a somewhat crude concentrating device capable of considerable improvement,
and the gold saved thereon. The saving by these washers
is fair, but not close, but with some slight improvements
Engineer's Report
made to it, I think the machine will be capable of making a high extraction if carefully worked, and taking into
consideration their original cost and the cost of operation
i would be hard o replace them entirely, although if necessary further machines of an approved type could be installed to increase the saving.
The Quenner Pulverizer has a proven capacity of
over 0 tons of cemented gravels per hour, and requires
less than 30 h. p. to operate it.
The country is generally a dry one and water is
scarce. This condition has made it necessary in most instances to treat the ores by dry methods, and has undoubtedly developed the present efficiency of such methods. With gasoline or oil engines, and dry pulverizers
and washers the lack of water has no particular terror
for the operators, as for camp purposes it is always easy
at small expense to obtain such quantities as may be required.
The climate is favorable for mining, as there is very
little wet or cold weather, and although at times extremely hot I did not notice that work was in any way interfered with.
The supply of labor is plentiful, the Mexicans and Indians being excellent miners, in fact, this seems to be
their onl ymeans of livelihood, and wages range from
$1.00 to $1.5 per day for native labor. Skilled labor is
paid for at about the same rate as prevails in our own
camps.
I made arrangements for you for the purchase on
favorable terms of an exploration of approximately 1,000
pertinencias (2,500 acres) covering a portion of the well
known San Rafael placer fields.
Owing to the nature of the placer deposits it is impossible without going to great expense, to obtain a fair
average of the values, and more particularly so as some
of the gold is very coarse, nuggets from $1.00 to $5.00
being not uncommon, whilst fro malmost every placer
field mentioned there are well authenticated reports of
nuggets of large size being taken, many of them being
valued at hundreds of dollars.
The most prospecting work done in any one place
has been carried out at Las Palomas, by R. K. Neill, of
Spokane, and in his report he estimated average values of
$0.70 per yard for a depth of 50 feet over a prospected
area of 100 acres, with an estimate of $6,000,000 worth of
gold contained in this prospected area, and this he states
without taking into account the enriched gravels on bedrock, running from 1 to 7 feet thick, for which he got
values of approximately $30.00.
Mr. Neill's estimate of working costs is $0.12^ per
yard, using the dry methods as adopted there for up to
date practice.
At Boludo three companies are working on bedrock,
and whilst no definite returns can be obtained, I penson-
ally watched several of the cleanups, and found that their
ground was averaging from $7.00 to $10.00 per ton.
The San Rafael Placers, under option to the company, have been worked over on the surface by Mexicans
and some prospect, and working shafts have been sunk in
the "argamasa" or cemented gravels and values as high
as $8.00 per ton were obtained.
The thickness of the gravels here is as yet an undetermined factor, but here are large areas which can be
seen to be from 20 or 30 feet upwards in thickness. It
would be difficult to estimate the actual values contained
in this ground, but there are known places in the gravel
that will contain not less than $1.00 per ton, and on one
of these selected places I should advise that a complete
outfit be installed. The total cost of such an outfit, including Quenner Pulverizer, gasoline engine, conveyors
and washers will not exceed $7,000, and as practically no
provision has to be made for the native workmen employed the further sum of $500 would be sufficient for
preliminary headquarters for the management and white
employees.
As a low estimate of the values contained, I will assume that the first place on which the equipment is
placed will yield $0.60. The cost of mining and treatment
should not exceed at an outside estimate $0.25, which
would give a net profit of $0.35 per ton, and the machine
will treat 400 tons per day. There would thus be a net
profit of $140.00 per day or upwards of $3,5oo per month.
I should further recommend that a sum of not less
than $6,000 be devoted to the purchase of a Quenner
Prospecting Mill and equipment, and that the whole of
the Company's property te gone over and thoroughly
sampled. After such areas of pay gravel as may exist
there are definitely located, it would then be for the Directors to decide whether to install furher machines and
so increase he output, or to sen or lease the ground so
proved to contain pay values. By such prospecting and
sampling any ground considered not to have sufficient
values (and in this great area we may safely assume that
portions will be practically of no value to us) could be
abandoned, instead of being carried on and taxes paid
therefor.
The annexed extract from the "Mining World" of
July 9th, igio, will be of undoubted interest to you, and I
therefore append it for your perusal:
"AMERICAN OPERATIONS IN MEXICO.
"In 1823 there was passed the first act enabling for-
eigenrs to own and operate mines in Mexico and in the
following year three great English corporations accepted
the invitation, being the United Mexican Association, he
Anglo-Mexican Associaion and the Adventure Co., the
three practically confining their activities to the camps of
Guanajuato and Pachuca. Now there are about 1200 legitimate mining companies of outside origin and control operating profitably in Mexico, besides many others engaged in developing ground that is promising in appearance,
and still other concerns unincorporated,
"The majority of all these are American, and the result that, despite thc fabulous sums that have been taken
from the ground throughout the centuries, since the Cor-
tez era, Mexico now ranks fifth among the countries of
the world in production of lead, fourth in gold, second
in copper and first in silver. It is only within the last few
years that any serious attention was paid to the mining
of gold in the republic, but now there are several camps,
heretofore rated as strictly silver producers, which are
scoring greater yields in the yellow than in the white
metal."
In conclusion I beg to say that the ground obtained
by you gives great promise of being a large producer of
Gold (which is the only metal on which the price never
varies) and assured careful management I can with confidence recommend it as a legitimate enterprise capable of
making large returns upon the money invested.

TOPICAL TRIFLES
(By Onlooker)
:'s too bad about Dr. Crippcn," 1
lirked, as  1  laid down my paper
laratory to a chat with my good
Id Socrates.
Ihat is a foolish remark of thine,"
eplicd.     "Thou    should'st    have-
more sense than to express thy sympathy so loud. Beware, lest my
wife send him thc Sunday cake with
the icing which she hath made thee.
Such things havc happened more than
once."
■ I hastened to apologize—"I meant
it is hard on the Doctor to bc kept
in suspense. By this time all might
havc been over if "
"Exactly, but 'while there's life
there's hope,' my friend. Besides, is
the great Doctor the only person to bc
considered? Nay, think of the British
public. How dull it would bc to have-
all over, and just before Christmas
too. We cannot expect that good
man the Kaiser to supply all the excitement necessary for the welfare of
thc nation."
"That is very true,". I replied.
"There are so many ways of looking
at these things. It is surprising," I
went on, desiring to continue thc
conversation with so instructive a
friend, "how there is invariably a woman at thc bottom of things. They
looked at the bottom of thc Doctor's
cellar and there was the woman sure
enough. Though to bc sure they had
some difficulty in determining the
fact."
"Of a truth there was no doubt of
it. Alive or dead, it is ahvays the
same where a woman is concerned—
1 rouble."
"And lots of it," 1 supplemented,
not being without experience myself.
"But who will take pity on the fair
and unfortunate Ethel?"
"Pity? That is where thou niakest
a mistake, my friend," replied Socrates. "What more could woman
want? Fame in a single night! Verily, and that is what many havc
struggled a lifetime to gain."
"Indeed, 1 havc heard that thc stage-
clamors for her services. Certainly
there is no accounting for tastes."
Socrates looked up quickly at my
remark. "And wouhl'sl not thou go
and see her?" he asked.
"You bet I would," I replied, eagerly.   "Poor little Ethel!"
Socrates burst out laughing. "Exactly," hc chuckled, "and so would
many other sons of goats."
1 felt slightly indignant at his ridicule, but knowing him to be right 1
refrained from hot words. Just then,
there was a knock at thc door and
Uncle Sam came in. "Say, what are
you fellers gassing about?" he. asked.
"We were discussing thc Crippcn
case," I answered.
"O get a move on," shouted Sam.
"1 saw Bell in Seattle yesterday."
"Like fun you did, I saw her at the
Empress Hotel, in Victoria," 1 retorted, not wishing to bc outclassed
by a Yankee.
"You're getting too fresh," said
Uncle Sam, rudely. "What do you
people know about handling these
cases? Why you don't know a woman when you see her dead body before your eyes!"
"1 think it's the fault of the drug
stores,"  I   suggested,  mildly.
"You refer to thc drug which destroyed-—"
"Nay," interrupted Socrates, "he
means peroxide. Did'st thou uot
know	
"Thc British public knew," 1 broke
in, excitedly, "that it is a case of 'air,
what color, what "
"Hoi air, of course," butted in
Uncle Sam. " But what do you people-
know of liberty and justice, anyway?
Why didn't you give him thc third
degree? Make him confess one way
or the other. What's the use of wasting time? Be up to date. Get busy.
Uncle Sam would have lixed him good
and plenty."
During this intelligent tirade, I noticed with apprehension ihat my
good friend Socrates was waxing exceeding wroth. lie looked Sam
straight in  the eye.
"My dear youn man," he said, "we

GOOD   PAVING
In the windows of W. & J. Wilson's
clothing store on Government Street
may be seen a sample of the celebrated Worswick Company's Asphalt
Pavement. This sample was laid
down in the City of Visalia, Cat, 16
years ago and one has only to look at
the specimen to realise thc truth of
the Company's contention  that  their
pavement is just about the best that
can bc found. During these sixteen
years the pavement was subjected to
all kinds of water tests, as. apart from
the water-carts, rain, etc., floods are not
of uncommon occurrence in Visalia. It
has been said that this pavement will
not withstand the damage caused by
water; the sample in Wilson's is a
concrete proof to the contrary. The
Worswick Company have already
given great satisfaction to the residents on Linden Ave. and St. Charles
St.: they are at present engaged in
paving Rockland Ave. and Cook St.,
and the majority of Victoria's citizens
will be glad to learn that they have
obtained the contract for thc paving
of Fort Street. This enterprising
company lately purchased thc gravel
pits at Mt. Tolmie, formerly the property of The Lineham-Scott Sand &
Gravel Company, and it is sincerely
to be hoped that their far-sightedness
will be rewarded by a large share in
the contracts which the City will bc
awarding for new pavements.
Great Canal Across Prairies Projected
Survey parties of the Dominion
Government are returning from their
season's work, among them being
those engaged in enquiring into the
feasibility of construction of the
waterway from W'nnipcg to the
Rockies by way of the Saskatchewan
river. While the survey has not been
completed, it is stated that it has demonstrated that thc waterway can be
built without any insuperable difficulties. That part of it from the head
of Lake Winnipeg to Lapas would
cost $3,000,000, and, roughly speaking,
the whole would entail an expenditure
of $15,000,000. Revenue from the development of the 80,000 horsepower
of Grand Falls would, it is estimated,
be more than sufficient to pay the interest on the total outlay. From
Lapas a five-foot waterway is proposed. If this needed grain route is
constructed, Canada will have the
greatest system of inland waterways
in the world, extending from the seas
to the Rockies save for the distance
between Fort William and Winnipeg.

that in the year 1894 W H. Worswick, Sr., acting under contract with said city of Visalia,
did construct and lay an asphalt pavement for said city of Visalia, in accordance with plans
and specifications therefor, prepared by said W. H. AVorswick, Sr., and that said pavement
has been at all times and now is, used upon the main street of said city, and subject to constant and the heaviest traffic in said city, ancl gives evidence of giving similar and additional
service for an equal additional period of time in its present state.
That said pavement has been under water for several weeks at a time, during the hot
spring and summer months, owing to overflow of Mill Creek, which flows through said
city, said overflow an inundation occurring six times during said period, that said pavement
