throwing,that is required in the Capital City.
[Banking       About   four  months ago
i Enterprise,   the Northern   Bank   established   a   branch   in
Victoria.    Tliey came with   all   the
.prestige of an institution which had
captured   thc   business   meu   of the
Wesl. by the new    and   enterprising
methods which they introduced into
the banking business.   The ollicers of.
/older institutions shook their heads,
[declared that,  there  were too many
I banks already and that the now institution would find itself de trop. This
I was in July.    Yesterday the general
► manager, Mr. O'Grady, who is on a
visit to the city, negotiated Ihe purchase   of   a   lot   on Douglas street,
adjoining the site of the Merchant's
Bank, and as soon as it can be cleared
a bank building will be erected suitable for the requirements of a prosperous    business.    This    is the hest
, comment upon the success, which has
J been achieved by Mr. Godfrey Booth,
and his staff.   It also shows tliat the
|, business men of Victoria appreciate
a    thoroughly   Western   institution,
controlled.and directed by a Western
Board.   Not the least interesting feature in the policy of   the   Northern
iBank is the manner in which it caters for the million, the saving's bank'
,and cash box department having be-
'comc instantly and widely popular.
Mayoral By reason of the fact
^agarics, that man is fallible, and
that to err is human, the
[mistakes of public servants as long as
rlhey spring from simple errors of
judgment are condoned on this principle. Many of the vagaries which
have characterised the conduct of
Mayor Morley during his year of
ollice have been treated with a leniency which would hardly have been
exercised if it had not been recognised that they were the result of an
unfortunate natural habitude and an
iiincei'tain temper. No one has ever
questioned his sincere desire to reform Victoria, and no one is yet convinced that any man could have gone
about the taslc in a more impracticable manlier. There are two ways in
which a reform may be effected: by
a   well    considered,   carefully   laid
tcheme backed hy a compact organisation, and galvanised into force by
in aroused public sentiment.. The
ltlier way is that adopted for example
by Martin Luther, John Wesley and
General Booth, where the personality
of Ihe man and his divine spirit carries all before it. lt is hardly necessary to say that Mayor .Morley has
never tried the former plan; unfortunately he has essayed the latter
with results which will not entitle
him to havo his name enrolled with
the great men whose example he lias
sought to emulate without possessing
their equipment. As the end of his
first, and last, term of office approaches it is possible to contemplate
with equanimity the short period
which will now elapse before he re-
fires into that respectable obscurity
from which he should never have
emerged. The Colonist should know,
and probably does know, better than
any other public organ what Victoria
1 cquires iu its mayor, and this week
it has plainly told Mayor Morley that
the trouble with His Worship is that
he is a law unto himself, that he.is
lacking in a proper sense of responsibility, that he is inspired by crude
ideas, that he has eausesd the city
ten months of municipal turmoil, that
everything he lias touched he has
iinidled because he is constitutionally
unable to take a calm and judicial
view of any subject. If this indictment bears any approximation of
truth then the city has home with
such an infliction long enough, and
the continuance of a mau with such
natural defects in the ollice of .chief
magistrate would constitute a menace
to the prosperity of the city. There
are already a sufficient number of
freaks in the other departments of
public service without putting one
into the highest seat. Unfortunately
during the present week Mayor Morley has shown that he is not merely
dangerous because of his incapacity,
but because though ou every ground
bound to uphold and administer the
law, lie is prepared to violate it in or-
ler lo gratify personal spleen, or, as
The Colonist suggests, to catch a few
votes from the Little Bethelites. In
liis action on the Board of Licensed
Commissioners, in connection with the
investigation of the Tourist Cafe license the Mayor attempted to override the Municipal Clauses Act, which
sets out in explicit language how the
proceedings shall be conducted by
providing that a hearing by this eourt
shall be conducted in precisely the
same manner as a civil trial. The
Mayor tried again and again to put
the licensee in the witness box and
■ ■> Compel him to answer certain questions which the Municipal Clauses
Act state spccifieially that he need
not answer. He persisted in this
course after it was pointed out to
him that; his proposal was a violation
of the Act, as well as an invasion of
the privileges of the individual, and
in so doing showed his contempt for
the law, which it was his duty to respect. The Mayor nlso insisted on
the giving of hearsay evidence, the
very evidence which he knew had
been disallowed by the police magistrate as being contrary to fundamental law; he knew that this evidence
was rejected by Magistrate Hall, because he was sitting on the bench
with the magistrate during the conduct of the proceedings.   Thc Mayor
further sought to compel the licensee
to close a certain door-way in the
back of his premises, and urged until
outvoted by his colleagues Ihal the
license, should be eauclcled because of
the existence of this doorway, lie
did Ihis with the full knowledge of
lhe fact that there.is no authority
vested by the law in the Licensing
Commissioners to interfere wilh the
arrangement of licensed premises.
They have no power under the law
or under the Municipal Clauses Act
to close up any door or entrance into
licensed premises. Before lhey could
adopt such a course it would be necessary for a by-law to be passed ]:inhibiting back entrances. Nn such bylaw exists, although the Mayor declared flint he hnd it in contemplation, but he ignored the fact thnt tbe
Commissioners are an executive and
not a legislative body, and he again
showed his contempt for the law by
endeavouring to exercise a power
which it; docs not confer. The obstinacy of the Mayor in this matter,
as in most- matters which he has
handled during his term of ollice,
might have cost the city dearly; in
fact there is very little doubt that
from a purely financial standpoint the
best thing that could hnve happened
to the licensee of the Tourist Cnfe
would hnve been the confiscation of
his license. Since it would have
been a grossly illegal act committed
at the instigation of the very same
commissioner who signed the original
license the city would have been
liable to a suit for heavy damages, a
suit which must have inevitably gone
against them, as in cancelling the license the Commissioners would have
acted without jurisdiction. This is
thc latest phase of Mayor Morley's
folly; it may not be the last, but he
can hardly go further in the direction of showing his utter contempt for
legal regulations and his obstinate determination to have his own way
"coute qui coute." By universal consent, the liquor traffic has to be surrounded with safe-guards, and special legislation is required for its
regulation, but this does nnt entitle
every hare-brained reformer to rush
in and harass a legally authorised
trade, and in doing so tn violate the
very law upon the strict administration of which thc proper conduct of
that trade depends. The action of
Mayor Morley in this mntter will be
condemned by every right-minded
person ns n gratuitous piece of impertinence which will do nothing to
further the cause of genuine, reform,
though it may have its good effect in
demonstrating the folly of entrusting
the administration of the law to a
wilful law-breaker.
general manager of the G. T. P. Mr.
Bodwell's own evidence on this point
was absolutely clear, and in order lo
make lhe least capital out of the
argument the News must be prepared to say that Mr. Bodwell's evidence was not true. This, of course,
it is not prepared lo say, and would
not dure say, and therefore the matter rests where it was put by Premier
McBride when defending the transaction in the House, viz., thnt he hnd no
hesitation in treating with Mr. Bodwell because his professional status
wns such that no one could possibly
doubt that he was properly instructed
by the parlies whom he claimed to
represent. The News will have lo
take up something more effective
than this before it will increase the
number of its converts even from ten
to eleven. Incidentally it may be
pointed out that in its extraordinary
valuation of fhe Kaien Island lands
sold to the G. T. P., which it estimated at $7,000,000. the not unimportant fact, was overlooked that
since the Government retained a quarter interest in these lands, and since
their enhanced value would have to
be due entirely to the development
work of the G. T. P., the Province
hns hy the transaction made a profit
of $1,750,000, or will have done so
by the time that the lands in question
reached the estimated value placed
upon them by the New Westminster
News. Really this would not appear
to be such a poor business transaction after all.
Kaien The New Westminster Daily
Island. News, in spite nf the fact
admitted by itself that only
fen persons in the Province will read
lhe evidence of the Kaien Island
Commission, keeps pegging away in its
editorial columns in the endeavour to
educate these ten to understand that n
private syndicate, of which it declares
that Mr. R. V. Bodwell wns the most
active member improperly negotiated
for the lands ultimately conveyed to
the Grand Trunk Pacific. Of course
the News is fully aware that neither
Mr. Bodwell nor his associates acted
improperly at all, hnt whatever they
did was done by the request of the
Fellow The quest inn nf how the
Subjects, immigrant Indians who
are coming to our shoves
shall be treated will he largely determined on the principle of the problem which agitated the mind of Lord
Dundreary. It is the question of
whether the dog shall wag the tail,
or vice versa. It is so in a double
sense; it is first, and foremost a question whether Imperial and constitutional law or local prejudices shall
prevail. It is secondly a question of
whether the sentiment of an enlightened and progressive community or
the self-interest of a blatant section
shall carry sway. In the end there
can he hut one result, the justice and
fair play which characterises British
rule in every part of the Empire will
be enforced in spite of the most vehement protests from a few misguided
persons, some of whom have an axe
In grind, and others of whom do not
understand the bearings of the ques-
t ion. Certain organisations may be
prepared to ignore the fact which
more than four hundred millions of
people in every part, of the world will
never forget that the Hindus nie
British subjects. Of these four hundred millions there are not a few who
remember that some of these very
men, and their fathers, stood in the
breach during lhe dark days of the
Indian Mutiny and saved the lives
and protected the honour of English
women. This one fact, if it stood
alone, should for ever brand as traitor
and churl the man who could have
the insolence lo stand lip and say, as
Alderman Williams said in fhe Vnncouver City Council on Tuesday last,
that il would he a blessing to be cruel
to the Hindus, nnd that he was prepared to steel himself against showing them any kindness. Well did
Dr. Monroe say that, such cruel treat
ment as was proposed would be a
disgrace to lhe city. Surely Alderman Williams, nud men who think
ns he does, do not expect Canadians
to support a policy of inhumanity
without precedent in lhe annals of
lhe Empire. If the resources of civilisation and enlightened government)
are unable In deal with such a simple
problem as the influx of .1 few thousand Hindus without resorting to
methods which would be a disgrace to
' Pngaii race, then no stronger condemnation of advanced civilisation
could be urged. One can hardly resist the conviction that much of this
ad caplandum twaddle is addressed
to the gallery, foi' no sane man can
believe that it will go down.with the
people of Cannda. These men have
not come here to murder or fo steal,
they have come to seek work, and are
prepared to work and to earn their
pny. If they nre able to do this they
have as much right to do it at least
as any other British subject. If they
nre unable or unfit, that fact will be
demonstrated by experience ami the
problem will be solved by a natural
process of the elimination of the unfit, and the survial of tbe fittest. It
is impossible that in thc working out
of (his solution any upheaval of the
labour market will take place or any
economic principle be violated. Wc
cannot apply the same methods to
discourage the immigration of British
subjects as we have applied so effectively and with questionable wisdom
in the case of the Chinese. Experience has taught us that that, method
cannot he extended tn the Japanese,
who are again a race of different
colour from our Own, yet who by reason of the friendly nation clauses can
only be prevented Prom coming here
through peaceable persuasion ami
diplomatic negotiations. There is
nothing to prevent *.lie Canadian Government from ad.ij .ng these measures in relation lo lhe Hindu immigration as it is somewhat inaptly
called. There is little doubt that
those who have already come, were
fired by the enthusiasm of some
Hindus who had visited British Columbia, but already they have discovered that the conditions arc not
what they had anticipated, and that
generally speaking the climate, the
class of work, and the social conditions with which they would be compelled to comply are not cogenial. The
Hindu is intelligent, he is educated
and he is a prolific correspondent;
before this his relatives at. home have
seen Ihis province through his spec-
tacles and the little tide of immigration will snnn be stemmed, if not entirely dammed. Meanwhile The
Week protests.• in the most emphatic
manner against the conduct and language of men like Alderman "Williams of Vancouver, who may think
that he is a friend of labour, but who
is the worst enemy of the working-
man, when he tries to teach him a
lesson by gross inhumanity, injustice and unfairness, which is far more
alien to the spirit of thc Canadian
people than the Hindu is to Canada.

*********
Thirty years later a gentleman stood
beneath a foreign sky beside an ill-kept
grave. His shoulders were bowed down,
his hair was turning to grey, and his
hand trembled upon his cane. In face
and figure he bore those marks of premature decay which spring from a dissolute life. It was Ian Angus, standing by his mother's grave.
It had no head stone, no ornament
but the green turf. It was with difficulty he had found it. In a distant
convent the bell was tolling for vespers. Tbe sun was setting. And the
shade of the cypress and arbutus trees
lengthened across the grave yard.
"At last!" cried he to himself. "And
so this is her grave.   Poor mother!"
Kneeling down in the twilight, he
gently kissed the burial mound.
"Press softly upon her, kind Earth,"
he exclaimed, "Press softly upon her.
She was more sinned against than sinning."
And then his thoughts reverted to
that far-off day which had seen her
whom he mourned set a gulf between
herself and her home, all the sorrow
of his motherless boyhood rose up before him and he burst into weak but
bitter tears.
''Oh, mother, mother," he cried, "if
you had only just turned and looked at
me, God knows I would have kissed
vou—God knows I would."

Little Eyes.
The other day a certain lady hastened
to the nursery, saying to her little
daughter: "Minnie, what do you mean
by shouting and screaming? Play quietly, like Tommy. See, he doesn't make
a sound." "Of course he doesn't," said
the little girl. "That is our game. He
is papa coming home late, and I am
you."
Identification.
Some humor was interjected into a
case in a magistrate's court in German-
town. Two local lawyers were representing plaintiff and defendant, and became excited and somewhat personal in
their argument. Matters proceeded to
such a pitch that the lawyers began to
-call each other names. "You're an ass I"
said one to the other. "You're a liar I"
was the quick retort of the opposing attorney. Then the magistrate, in a very
dignified manner, said, "Now that lhe
counsel have identified each other,
kindly proceed to the disputed points."
He Did His Best.
A hungry Irishman went into a restaurant on Friday and said to the wait-
ter:
'"Have yez any whale?"
"No."
"Have yez any shark?"
"No."
"Have yez any swordfish?"
"No."
"Have yez any jellyfish?"
"No."
"All right," said the Irishman.
"Then bring me ham and eggs and a
beefsteak smothered wid onions. The
Lord knows I asked for fish."
Solv.'ng a Difficulty.
The recent little difficulty with regard to the size of the names of certain "star"actresses on the play-bill recalls the story of a well-known opera
manager of bygone days. This gentleman found himself upon one occasion
distracted by the importunities of two
rival singers, each of which ladies desired her name to appear above that of
the other in the posting bill. At last
the poor man solved the difficulty by
a most happy inspiration! "Ladies," said
he, "let us adopt the just and simple
expedient of giving precedence to the
eler." Both ladies suddenly discovered
that she did not want to be first.
A Calling.
"Hullo, there!"—She—"Is a telephone
girl's occupation a profesion or a
business?"
He—Neither; it's a calling.—"Floh."
When a mother scolds her son and

BEFORE the ADVANCE
A SPLENDID INVESTMENT FOR QUICK PROFITS.   BUY NOW THE STOOK OF THE PITTSBURG-MANHATTAN MINING COMPANY OF TONOPAH, NEVADA.   100,000 SHARES—PAR VALUE $1.00, FULLY PAID AND NON-ASSESSABLE—OFFERED AT 10 CENTS PER SHARE.
Property and Location.
The most notable facts of the Company are that it owns proven gold and silver hearing land; not only is the ore there, but it is there in quantities, an apparently
inexhaustible supply of pay ore. The Company owns the Gregory Group of Five Claims, situated in the famous MANHATTAN DISTRIOT, and also has several Claims
in the LONE MOUNTAIN DISTRIOT; both these districts are the richest in the WORLD. The tunnels have been opened up on the Lone Mountain Claims and indications point to striking large bodies of high-grade ore carrying values in gold and silver.
Mining Has Built Many Great Fortunes.
Nothing so surely offers large returnB as a good Mining Stock. Probably you do not realize how many people there are who are enjoying a regular income as a result from investing in Mining Stocks. There are thousands of them, and they are largely those who bought their stock when the opportunity was first offered to secure
shares at a low price before the company had begun to pay dividends. Stocks of many mining companies have advanced from a few cents a share to prices ranging
from $100 to $1,500 a share in value, and besides have paid back to the investors in dividends many hundred times what they first invested. Many of the companies are
paying from 100 per cent to 1,000 per cent in dividends on the first price of the stock. To grasp this opportunity and purchase stock in the PITTSBURG-MANHATTAN MINING COMPANY at 10 CENTS a share means success to you; and that means houses, good living, travel, education and social privileges for your children. If
you do not grasp this opportunity and secure a good share of wealth you are likely to be classed as a failure. The proposition is in the hands of men whose ability and integrity cannot be questioned, and these men pledge themselves to see that each and every investor in the enterprise receives an equal division of the profits. Experts
have examined the property, and it is the universal opinion that it has a wonderful future.
Organization.
The Company is organized under the laws of the State of Nevada. Capital stock of $1,000,000, divided into shares of the par value of $1.00 each; 400,000 shares
are in the treasury, which will be sold as required for developments from time to time.
10 Cents Per Share, Cash or Installments.
We want to impress upon you the fact that you don't have to be rich in order to become a shareholder in this splendid Company. The price of shares is only 10
eents, and you can buy as few as one hundred (.100), $10.00 worth. If you are not in a position to pay cash for all the shares you desire to own we will accept a small
payment down with the order, the remainder to be paid in five monthly installments. Suppose you want to invest $10.00 in this Company; simply send us $2.50 with your
order for 100 shares, and thereafter $1.50 per month for five months and the stock will be paid for. It's very easy—anyone can afford to do this. Almost everyone has
enough money in a year to bup them an interest in this Company which would make them independent for life. Send in your order today. The following table will show
you just how many shares your money will buy, the amount you send if you want to pay all cash, and the plan for monthly payments:

NOTES ON PROVINCIAL NEWS
There are few places in the Province
where the coming Provincial election is
exciting more interest than in Cumberland. The very cunning move by which
Mr. William Sloan, M.P., proposed to
corral both The News and The Enterprise in the interests of the Liberal
party, although productive of the labour
of the mountain has not yet brought
forth the proverbial mouse.' The difficulty seems to be the prosaic one of
dollars and cents, not that prosperous ex-Klondiker would have any difficulty in financing twenty such deals, but
that the astute owners of the papers,
seeing their opportunity, are standing
pat on higher figures than would be justified under ordinary circumstances.
Meanwhile Mr. Bennett, although the
selected nominee of the Liberal party
for local honours, is still holding down
the school principalship, and endeavouring to find out whether he would forfeit his salary if he resigned that position in the middle of- the term in order to shine in a wider arena. Ex-
Editor Pullen of the defunct "Wild
Life" is supposed to be the wanning pan
for Mr. Bennett's present position,
should the schemes of Mr. William
Sloan, M. P., materialize. Meanwhile,
the road-boss is receiving congratulatory addresses, and the ever-popular
Joe Hunter is being urged to stand. At
present his modesty has prevented his
acceptance of the nominaiton, but if he
should finally yield like President
Roosevelt to thc entreaties of his
friends, there will be something doing
in Cumberland when election day comes
round.
will well repay study by all who are
interested in public affairs.
One Advantage in Early Closing.
The following extract from the Kaslo
Kootenaian will be read with a feeling
of sympathy by all Western towns,
which suffer from the infliction of punk
shows. It also serves to show that early
closing is not without its advantages to
some people:
The "Novelty Amusement Company"
played here to a good house last Monday night, and was certainly the limit
of anything that has yet appeared in the
show line at Kaslo. The pictures were
punk, the singers punker, and the whole
show, for a troupe, the punkest that
ever hit the pike. How the audience
held itself is a mystery, possibly Macaw-
ber, like the people, waited for something better to turn up, instead it kept
getting worse. It was simply fierce,
and the members of the Novelty Company can thank their lucky stars that
the stores in Kaslo close at 6 p.m.,
otherwise they might have had cause to
vividly remember their visit here. It
is such fake troupes of the Novelty Co.
type that injure the show business in
this section, and the next troupe coming here, be the members ever so good
but yet unknown, will feel the baneful
effects. Kaslo is a good show town, but
novelty companies of doubtful calibre
can thank their stars wc hav ean early
closing by-law, or there would be a rush
for 'first-class eggs" that when they
struck something would go off like a
bombshell and for perfume beat a polecat.
Advanced Thought.
Mr. C. M. Fraser, the principal of
Nelson High School, is a man of singular culture and educational attainments, and one who will yet make his
mark in the public life of the Province. At a recent meeting of the University Club Mr. Fraser read a paper
on co-education, which is thc result of
a long and careful study of the subject.
He proposed three classes of colleges,
(i) Colleges for women only, (2)
women's colleges affiliated with men's
colleges, and fil co-education in universities for men. The first iwo are
common in the south and cast, the third
predominates in thc west. At first there
was much opposition to the education
of women on the same footing as men,
but wherever il lias been fairly tried the
arguments against it have been successfully overthrown. The standard of
education is rather raised than lowered
by the admission of women. Their
health has suffered no more than that
of men under thc same conditions and
the number of men students has increased more rapidly in co-educational
colleges than in colleges for men only,
The subject is one which can only be
adequately treated by a specialist, and
Mr. Fraser is a specialist, but it is one
which bas assumed vast proportions in
connection with the development of American and Canadian life, and one which
A Wealthy Investor.
Thc Okanagan and the Kootenay valleys are not the only districts in the interior which are rapidly coming to the
front as producers of fruit. Grand
Forks has long been an important centre
for this profitable industry, which lids
fair to become one of thc most important in thc Province. Wealthy investors
from thc East are becoming interested.
Among the latest is the gentleman referred to in the following paragraph
from the Grand Forks Gazette:
Lome A. Campbell, manager of the
West Kootenay Power & Light Co., and
W. M. Doull, son of President Doull of
the same company, were visitors in the
cily this week. Alter an inspection of
hinds soulh of the river a deal was negotiated whereby Mr. Doull became lhe
owner of Mrs. Perkins' ranch of sixty
acres, adjoining A. L. Traunwciser's
ranch.
What is Success ?
The Boundary Creek Times in its
latest issue has a pathetic editorial on
success, which it opines to be more or
less a bubble. It fears that thc world's
measurement is wrong; that the scales
have been tricked; thc standard juggled. The Times in now being edited

The slory of "Monje Cristo," and the
play suggested from it, are familiar lo
all. Il lias but one character, one character ihat commands intense interest,
that of the innocent sailor, snatched
from the arms of his bride within an
hour of his marriage and doomed lo
suffer an agony of years entombed in
a prison, tortured hy the thoughts of
what might have been and at least rewarded with revenge brought about by
Providence. Mr. O'Neill gives a recital
of Edmond Dantcs that is as unstudied
as if exhibited at a lirst reading. It is
as spontaneous, as calm, at a time demanding' it, as fiery at a time that commands life and action, as superbly upbuilding in every detail of self-poise as
ever presented by a man whose years
are belied by his enthusiasm. The production is splendidly staged and lhe
company in support of Mr. O'Neill is

But when the Indian messenger from

and in calm and emotionless accents
told of the death of the Great Chief and
the call of tbe tribe to bis son, the conviction first dawned and then deepened,

In making this request—and I think
it is a most reasonable one—I am not
asking for Mr. Gladstone's own reply.
I am asking for reliable and trustworthy testimony from unbiassed and
credible people in the oilier fields he has
laboured in, I am asking the members
of the Reformed Episcopal Church to
satisfy themselves and the public upon
these points, before they endorse, by
silence or by the ballot, lhe drastic measures which their pastor, as chief advisor of our municipal executive, is endeavouring to have placed on the city's
statute rolls.
When a man is going to be operated
on for a deadly internal disease, he satisfies himself first as (o thc qualifications
of tbe surgeon under whose knife he is
to place himself. If, then, there is a
sore disease in our body municipal, shall
we not, before accepting any drastic
remedy proposed, examine most carefully into the qualifications of thc self-appointed healer of our ills?
