SHATTERED IDOL
S. Willison, the editor of the Toronto
'•ys, is regarded as the dean of Canadian
nalism.   He has had a distinguished
er, having occupied the editorial chair
•the Toronto Globe, Canada's leading
spaper, for about ten years.   Among
other incidents   which  distinguished
I editorial career was the publication
"Life of Laurier" which Mr. Willison
foubtedly regarded as   his   "magnum
3," and which still stands as the Can-
in classic on Laurier. ' But Mr. Willi-
jiio longer edits the Globe.   Thanks to
unbounded liberality of Mr. J. W.
telle,   the'  Toronto   pork-packer, he
a the News, which started out as an
spendent, and is now an ultra-Conserv-
je organ.   This explanation is necessary
.inable one to appraise at its real value
present attitude of Mr. Willison to-
Is Sir Wilfrid.   The editor complains
his idol has "feet of clay," a discov-
jin which Mr. Willison possesses no
nt, and which others had made even
re that gentleman had published his
igyric on "the Peerless One." Katur-
l enough,   Editor   Macdonald  of  the
>$ gets back at Editor Willison of the
ifs by the simple expedient of quoting
ust him the editorials he wrote for
paper when he still regarded Sir Wil-
as the Knight   'Sans peur et sans
ocho"; to whicii Willison replies that
ie (perish the thought!) but Sir Wil-
has changed;  that he was,  at that
, a   peerless   idol,   without   "feet of
" ancl gold all through, but that he
alien from his high estate in the main
lie same route as Eli of old Avhose sons
e themselves filthy and he restrained
i not;   which,   being   translated into
ern Toronto Journalese,   means that
Wilfrid's Ministers   are    "grafters"
"boodlers,"  and hc winks  at their
tadilloes.    All this is very entertain-
and may or may not possess any sig-
:ance.   Reduced to a, bedrock proposi-
, and expressed in less offensive lan-
]*ge, it amounts to very little more than
people who have followed politics have
i aware of for a long time, except that
' have hesitated to  suggest  that   Sir
frid winked, politely preferring to bo-
e that ho slept.   The rival editors may
il be left to fight tlio matter out. They
not likely to advance tlie interests of
r respective parties   by   pursuing it.
tunately, the people of Canada keep
i-icienfly well posted on public affairs to
ble them to form tlieir own judgment
t matter of this kind; and while they,
ie never made the mistake which Mr.
Ijlison hade ten years ago, of assuming
I Wilfrid to be perfect, they would prob-
|V decline to believe at his bidding that
r "feet of clay" contain more than the
rage admixture of dross.    Meanwhile,
men will be disposed  to   accept  the
ements of Mr. Willison without a very
ire grain of salt; neither political nor
irnalistic renegades stand very high in
■public esteem.
IOME FROM HOME
'lie Over-Seas Mail   is   an   excellent
_ paper, and is doing a good work,
cially  in   its  correspondence  depart-
t, which it has mado a specialty.   It
ages to attract   correspondence   from
|y part of tlie   Empire,   and   Britisli
jinibia figures in its columns week by
i<.   In thc last issue to hand is a letter
ed "A Settler," dated from Procter,
0.   Xo doubt the writer meant to con-
I a correct impression, but in one re-
i. at any rate failed to do so.   He says
tlie cost of living, per man, would bo
per week in the country districts, but
town considerably more.   Tlie AVeek
d like to learn of any country district
ritish Columbia where a man could
live for 10s a week. The lowest boarding
rate known is $20.00 a month, which figures out a pound a week. But it is not
so much the incorrectness of this one figure that matters as the incorrectness of
the general impression conveyed by thc
letter that living is cheap in B. C. AVe
want to attract all the English settlers we
can, but we do not want them to come here
under a false impression, and there is no
sense in which B. C. is not a very expensive country in which to live; and people coming out to make their home here
should take full cognizance of that fact.
AVhere they have not done so, the result
has been disappointment and loss to them,
and a black eye to the Province.
THE PESTILENT FLY
There is little doubt that Dr. Davie
has placed his finger on the real cause of
the sickness which has been so prevalent
in Victoria and Vancouver during the last
month. There may be something in what
Dr. Pagan says, and in any event there is
an undoubted connection between accumulations of garbage and filth ancl epidemic
diseases. As Medical Officer for the
Province, it is quite in order for the doctor to lay stress on the importance of general cleanliness ancl strict observance of
sanitary precautions. It may also be true
that unhealthy conditions are accentuated
by drought in the manner which he describes in his comprehensive report, but
The AA'eek ventures to think that none of
these conditions would be half as dangerous but for the ravages of the pestiferous
fly. It is not necessary to go into details;
Dr. Davie has done that in his admirable
letter to the Colonist; and, moreover,
every householder has an object lesson before him, especially at meal-times, unless
he has succeeded in excluding the scourge
from his home. If people would wage war
on tlie fly, and leave no stone unturned to
exclude it from the house, we should soon
hear the last of the present epidemic. It is
by no means difficult to effect this, with
the aid of fly-screens, stick-papers ancl
formaldehyde. It calls only for patience
and perseverance..
THE B. C. ELECTRIC
The presence of Mr. Buntzen in the
Province is a reminder of thc continued
activities of the B. O. Electric Railway
Co. Mr. Buntzen, having been resident
manager for ten years, is probably the best
posted man on the general work of the
Company, and it is a distinct advantage
not only to the directors, but to tlie people
of British Columbia, that such a man is
available for inspecting its operations and
reporting at headquarters. Some people
arc impatient, and at times complain tliat
thc Company does not keep pace with
those sections of the Province which it
serves. This criticism does not tako cognizance of a rate of progress unprecedented iu the experience of tramway companies. AVlien people complain that the cars
run only every ten minutes, when they
want them every five; when they complain
of small cars and want large ones; when
they complain that whole districts in the
vicinity of cities are Avithout a service,
they forget Iioav great the demands are to
get, cars fast enough, and that even steel
rails are so much in demand that orders
have to be placed a long time ahead of requirements. They probably also forget
that it is no use laving rails or buying a
car equipment if there be not adequate
power, and the growth of the B. C. Electric Railway has far outstripped its power
supply. This accounts for the expenditure
of some $2,000,000 to develop additional
power for Vancouver, and $1,000,000 at
least at Jordan river to serve the requirements of Victoria. AVhen the latter gigantic work is completed, the Capital City
will have sufficient power for traction purposes for some years, but even here it
would be a mistake to conclude that anything approaching finality has been reached. The future of Arictoria is assured, but
it is impossible to assign the limits of its
development, and therefore impossible to
say that Jordan river will fill the bill for
more than a few years. AA'hen Mr. Buntzen visits the work, he will fiud over 700
men busily employed, a pay roll of $60,-
000 a month, and a probability that the
work will be completed by January, 1911.
The AA'eek hopes that before Mr. Buntzen
leaves for London he ancl Mr. Goward
will be able to conclude some arrangement
for the extension of their system in the
Saanich Peninsula.
A WARNING
Although the daily papers suppressed
the fact, it cannot be too widely known
that the Miss Tingley, who figured in the
running-down incident in which a motor
ear smashed the Ross delivery wagon,
was, on Saturday last, charged in the local
police court in this connection, convicted,
and fined $10.00 ancl costs. This should
serve as a salutory warning to careless
and incompetent motorists; the careful
and competent ones need no warning. In
this connection, it is to be hoped that the
police will keep an eye on chauffeurs from
across the line. The writer of this paragraph has noticed several this week driving on the wrong side of the road, and
crossing street intersections Avithout slackening speed or tooting a signal. Whilst
on this subject, The AVeek ventures to suggest to the authorities that the driArers of
transfer teams and freight Avagons generally do not observe "the rule of the road."
Secure in the bulk and invulnerability of
their teams, they jog along at their sivect
will, in "any old place," ancl as often as
not in the centre of the road. It would
be Avell worth Avhile for the police to give
these men to understand that they are
subject to the same regulations as thc man
avIio drives a buggy or motor car, and that
by Avandering from the proper side of the
road they are creating difficulty and danger for other people. Apparently, police
regulations do not admit of the placing of
an officer at the busiest corner in Victoria,
the intersection of GoA'ornmcnt and Yates,
during the whole day; it should be possible to remedy this.
THE CRICKET TOURNAMENT
Although it is a AA'eek since the Cricket
Tournament in A'ictoria aviIs concluded,
there are one or two matters which may
witli advantage bc referred to. It is only
fair to say that the tournament, as a
Avhole, Avas a great success, thanks to tlie
excellent arrangements and the unflagging
industry of the committee. Thc cricket
itself readied a higher standard of excellence thnn at any previous tournament. All
the matches in which the leading teams
took part were well worth seeing, mid on
several occasions the element of excitement
ivas not lacking. Victoria had a close
match with Burrard, and at one stage of
the game looked like losing. Kootenay
came within an ace of defeating A'ancou-
ver. Portland and Kootenay fought out
a double innings match to a most, sportsmanlike and creditable finish: and the
final, betAveen A'ictoria and Vancom'er,
Avas Avorth going half way across the Continent to sec. The game was. in n manner
of speaking, lost and avou by both sides
twice. Each side had four Avickets down
for less than .'10 runs. Each side rallied
and carried the score to 100 between the
fourth and seventh wicket, and each side
lost ifs last wickets for a small total. Until
J. C. Barnacle literally mowed down the
last two Vancouver wickets, with only 13
runs left to get, the final issue was in.
doubt. It is ahvays easy to be Avise after
the event, but old cricketers avIio carefully
folloAved the match, would haA'e put Barnacle on to bowl Avhen the Vancouver score
reached CO. Although York had been
boAvling splendidly ancl got his first 5
Avickets for 22 runs, from that stage on
the bowling Avas collared, and an earlier
change would have paid. However, too
much cannot be said of the splendid play
and captaincy of York throughout the
week, and the brilliant manner in AAdiieh
Barnacle pulled the game out of the fire.
It is a matter of congratulation that next
year's tournament is to be held in Victoria.
THE LIQUOR LAWS
The AVeek wants to call the attention of.
the police authorities to the management
of a certain well-known hotel in A'ictoria.
Once on a time, and not so long ago, this
Avas the foremost hotel in the city, and the
favorite resort of respectable families Avho
came to spend a feAV Aveeks in "A'ictoria
the Beautiful." But it has fallen on evil
times, and Tlie AVeek is credibly informed
that the manner in which it is noAV conducted is a disgrace to all concerned; and
further, that it is a menace to the morality
of the city. The bedrooms are used largely for drinking purposes, and the custom
prevails the same on Sundays as Aveek
clays. There are other evils Avhich* need
not be particularized, but Avhich are very
much in evidence to the . close observer.
The management has tAvicc come under
the notice of the police authorities, but on
neither occasion lias the result been satisfactory from a public standpoint. It is
not the intention of The AVeek to alloAV
this matter to rest where it is. If there
bad been any serious attempt to secure a
conviction, tliere would have been no difficulty in doing so, and if is difficult to resist the conclusion tliat the local officer—
avIio is supposed to look after this particular hotel—has neglected his duty. A'erb.

ADVERTISING VANCOUVER ;
The Colonist raises a bitter cry because
Vancouver Hotel runners shout for the
Princess Charlotte as the Seattle boat,
and the Charmer as the A'ictoria boat. Ko
doubt the charge is true, and nothing that
the Colonist can do will make any difference, because, while the. custom is unfair,
il is based upon a sentiment Avhich Avill
ahvays appeal to local self-interest. What
the Colonist should do is to use its influence for the alteration of matters which
are of much greater importance and significance, ami as ir enjoys a close affiliation to Ihe Vancouver Island Development
League, The Week respectfully suggests
that the two, working together, might effect a vi'vy important aud much needed
reformatimi. Is the Colonist aware that
nearly all press despatches emanating
from tlie Pacific Coast are given a Vancouver date-line, even when the contents
refer to Victoria? Is the Colonist aware
that on thousands of railway maps circulating iu Eastern Canada, England and
the United States, A'ictoria does not appear at all. while Vancouver looms up
large as the only B. C. city on the Coast?
Is the Colonist aware that paid publicity
agents who write up Vancouver and its
interests, not only ignore Victoria altogether, but skilfully mislead the public in
nearly everything relating to the Capital
City? it should be possible for an influential combination such as the Colonist:
and the Development League to get Victoria a place ou the maps Avhich arc circulated by the railway companies and not
by publicity organizations: but they will
never be able to bridle Ihe tongues of hotel
runnel's and touts. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1910
At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNQBR
"Hoav long, Oh Lord, how long"
are the Mayors and Aldermen of Victoria to be allowed the wholesale
Slaughter of thc Innocents by condemning men, women and children
to death through the agency of dysentery. Dr. Fagan in his report on
the causes of this dread disease,
amongst other reasons attributes it
to impure water and to the fact that
in very dry weather the dust will
permeate through to the intestines.
Both these causes have their remedy
and both are in hands of the City authorities. Enough has been said and
Avritten about the Avater supply Avithout the Lounger taking a hand. Much
has also been said and AVritten about
the dust nuisance. Plenty of watering
and a good dust-laying scheme would
certainly minimize to a very large extent the number of victims in Victoria. There is still another point
which Dr. Fagan did not point out,
probably because it appertains more
to the individual than to the Public
Service, and that deals with fruit.
Fruit inspection is all very Avell and
is most efficiently carried out in this
Province; but much of its utility is
done away with if the buyer will not
peel the fruit after buying and before
eating it. When one considers the
number of hands through which the
fruit passes from picker to consumer,
and few of them .clean ones, it is obvious that an enormous amount of
poisonous matter must be absorbed
into the various systems, more than
sufficient to induce the disease referred to. Flies, of course, are like the
poor, if anyone coull invent a system
which Avould keep the flies in their
proper places, viz., on garbage heaps,
and prevent them from entering
dwelling houses, he would indeed be
worthy of the Order of Merit or the
Cross of the Legion of Honour. No
suggestions are needed on the question of milk. However, Avhatever may
fee causes and remedies, it is sincerely
to be hoped that something may be
done before thc next dry spell whicli
may alleviate the sufferings of the
many thousands avIio have been victims of dysentery.
*'  *   *
I Avonder Iioav many of the citizens
of Victoria have noticed the really
magnificent display of pianos in the
Montelius Piano House on Government street. There is certainly no
house in the Province Avhich can show
a better window and show-room display, and probably no house in the
whole of Canada which can show a
better one. On the first floor there
are 150 instruments of different makes
and qualities. The local manager of
this flourishing concern is Mr. B. P.
Greene whilst Mr. McArthur Berwick
is city sales manager.
*   *   *
Some time ago, it may have been
years, but I think that it was months,
I made reference to the pernicious
system of alloAving newspaper boys
to hawk their Avarcs in saloon bars.
I do not, of course, refer to the boy
who just runs in and leaves the bar
copy, but to the little nuisances who
come in droves and Avorry men who
are enjoying a conversation by nagging at them to buy. Apart from the
nuisance thus incurred, it cannot be
doubted but that the average saloon,
is no place for small boys. How
can we possibly expect our children
to grow up with clean tongues,
Avhen so many of them arc daily and
nightly subjected to hearing questionable talk? Surely this is a matter
which really needs reform, and the
men behind the bar AA'ould be the first
to appreciate it. In fact, both occasions of my mentioning this point
have been at the instance of bartenders. The public Avould most decidedly regard the regulation favourably, whilst the papers concerned
would not lose one cent as the men
who wanted a paper Avould buy one
anyhow on the streets.
*   *   »
The Lounger led the Avay, Alderman Humber folloAved suit and at last
the  City have  taken notice.      Four
neAV (though there is no need for the
word "new") lavatories are to be
built in Victoria, at a total cost of
$20,000.
There is need for many more; but
still, Rome Avas not built in a day,
neither can all the improvements
which Victoria will undoubtedly pos
sess in the future, be erected at once,
and four is a very good start. All
praise to Alderman Humber and to
the other individual, whom I am too
modest to mention a second time.

Poor Mayor! Poor Council! Lucky
oysters! Lucky Humber! (vide report
of Council meeting in Colonist of the
30th inst.)
* *   *
I havc often wondered why the B,
C. E. Ry. Co. do not run cars during
the summer time with seating accommodation for passengers on the top.
They are run most extensively in
England and are exceedingly well
patronised. Many people on a fine
day take a ride on the outside of a
car in preference to an ordinary car*
riage, because it is infinitely cheaper,
and a much better idea of the scenery
is obtained. Many men whom I
know prefer to ride on the outside,
even in wet weather, in order to
smoke, preferring a ride with a pipe
in the open, if wet atmosphere, to
one partaken of in the someAvhat
stuffy and crowded interior.
* *   *
Now, I have a   legal   proposition
Avhich I should like to put before the
City Solicitor; or perhaps, Chief
Langley is the one to decide. In response to an urgent and most sensible
appeal written in the pages of the
Colonist some few weeks ago, orders
have been given that pedestrians are
not to loiter on the street corners.
Quite right too. But the point is
this: Can I argue.a legal right to loiter there in pursuance of my duties.
I am paid to be at "The Street Corner." It is a case of "No Admittance
without Business," but I have business there. I don't want to be hauled
before the magistrate and find that
I am wrong, and I am certainly not
going to pay for the privilege of
finding out from some of the legal
practitioners in Victoria. Therefore I
put the question in a general Avay,
and any other gentlemen who care
to turn in an answer are heartily desired to do so. And the ones whic
arc right will be those which say that
I may.    At least that's my opinion;
* *   *
Without any disrespect to either
The Colonist or The Times, I do
think, and so do many others, that
they might print more "news." They
print a good deal of Canadian news,
which is right and well that they
should; they also print an immense
amount of United States Provincial
news, which cannot possibly be of interest to more than the tiniest fraction of the inhabitants of Canada, be
they Canadians, Englishmen or Americans. The telegraphic news is one
of the meagrest and concerns few of
the great issues of Europe in which
avc are all, whatever our nationality,
concerned, seeing that for the most
part we are sprung from the same
common stock. Few of the editorials
deal with more than local topics; it is
right that more attention should be
paid to these than to others of more
general import, but there is no reason
Avhy International politics should not
have rather more space than they at
present possess. This accusation
holds good against most of the daily
papers in Canada, though there are
some exceptions, such as The Toronto Globe and Montreal Gazette. But,
for the most part, the news printed
is not of such a nature as to interest
the majority of the readers. This
being the case, and, of course, I and
my authorities are open to correction,
I think that it would be a well-advised plan to instal a reliable telegraphic service which would give
news of the Avorld as well as of one
large portion of it.   So thinks

The Victoria Theatre
j To-night that funniest of English

Iverybody knows it by heart, and the
letter they know it the better they
ice it. If the Huron L. Brydon Co.
Tistain their characters as they have
pen doing during the past week, it
light to be one of the most accept-
|)le pieces of its kind ever staged
Victoria. For the three middle
[tys of the week the company play-
"A Bachelor's Romance," a capti-
liting remodelling of the "Duchess'"
lay entitled "A Little Rebel" by
[iss Martha Morton. As an emotion-
actor Huron L. Brydon appears
stand as high as he does as a com-
jian. Miss Graham as "Silvia" and
Ir. Scott as "Martin Briggs" deserve
le highest credit for their spirited
|ndition of their successive parts.

Walker Whiteside in   "The   Melting
Pot"
If ever a play comes to Victoria as
well recommended as Zangwill's "The
Melting Pot" in which Walter Whiteside is to appear for one night at
Victoria next Thursday it was
strangely modest about making that
fact knoAvn. To say nothing of the
laudatory words showered upon the
play, and the star as well, by great
men and women who rarely go out
of their way to bestow praise upon a
theatrical attraction — Theodore
Roosevelt, Jacob Schiff, Oscar Strauss
Brand Whitlock and Jane Addams,
for instance, and Booth Tarkington,
Augustus Thomas, Opie Read and
Hamlin Garland, as well—the play
bas gathered as enthusiastic an array
of neAvspaper commendation as has
been the lot of any drama of recent
years. "Deals with a problem big
enough to tempt Shakespeare," cries
one paper in New York. "Big,"
"great," "splendid," echo others. "Important," "nothing spiritually finer,"
"a thousand times worth while,' are
some of the Chicago verdicts, Avhile
others read "fine," "a great theme,"
"a play you Avill remember all your
life." In Washington they said "a
great drama," "a striking success,"
"powerful and gripping," and "the
enthusiasm amounted to an ovation,"
"ranks with the best AVorks of Tolstoi
and Victor Hugo," said a Baltimore
revieAver, "the best play of thc season," adds one in Milwaukee, "a
mighty masterpiece," declares a critic
in St. Louis.
More in thc same strain might be
added for columns, but perhaps nothing has been said that has seemed
more grateful to the author and producers of thc play than thc Avords of
an editorial that appeared in Collier's Weekly: "One comes from it a
better patriot, a better citizen of the
Avorld. a kindlier and more hopeful
being." What more can be added to
such praise?

The Famous Footnote
BY BOHEMIAN
I imagine that very few people outside the ranks .of.* the Methodist ministry were aware that thc regulation
forbidding card-playing, theatre-going
and dancing formed no part of thc
set rules of the Church, as agreed
upon Avhen the charter was established, but that it found place in a
foot-note subsequently added. This
circumstance seems to have* escaped
the memory of thc venerable Superintendent Avho, during the course of the
debate, last week, was compelled to reverse his decision Avjien.the fact was
pointed out to him. It is quite clear
that, while the; foot-note may properly have acquired all the force of
the set regulations which proceeded
it, no argument in favour of its equal
force could be based upon the contention that1 it''Avas a part of the original document; and since it Avas not
in the minds of the framers of the
charter, it clearly stands dissociated
from their intention, and from any
conception they may have had of the
subject.
Be that as it may, thc famous footnote has been discarded, and instead
of being bound by the dead letter of
the law, an appeal is made to the individual conscience to observe ils
spirit. This is a matter for congratulation all round, i removes a most
fruitful source of criticism, for nothing has been more conspicuous during thc last quarter of a century than
the failure of the Methodists generally to allow their conduct to bc governed by an obsolete regulation
There are still many Methodists who
do not dance, there are more who do
not go to the theatre, and possibly
still more Avho do not play cards; but
the clay has gone by when persons
Avho indulge in these amusements,
Avhether they bc Methodists or not,
can be stigmatized as unchristian.
The continuance of the foot-note has
"given occasion to thc enemy to blaspheme"; has held up the Methodist
Church in ar unfavourable light when
contrasted with the tolerant spirit of
thc age, and has considerably handicapped its progress by rendering it
impossible for self-respecting people,
Avho knew such pleasures to bc harmless Avhen properly indulged in, to remain i i church membership.
In this connection. 1 should like to
point out that while the test of
church membership still remains the
sane, viz.: attendance at class-meeting, 'ill Methodist Conferences deplore
the practical desuetude into which the
class-meeting has fallen. It is almost
pathetic lo notice the grim determination with winch the Methodist
fathers cling to this simulacrum. 1
imagine that their tenacity is due to
the fact that the class-meeting was
not merely the invention, hut lhe
stronghold, of John Wesley, and Ihal
he regarded it as the most distinctive
feature of Ihe spiritual aspect of
Methodism. Apart from lhe profound inherent respect with which il
is regarded by all old-time Methodists, thc difficulty of letting it go
is increased by the fact that there is
no other substitute in sight. Much
can be said for and much against it.
In the old times, when personal piety
and spiritual communion Avere more
in evidence than now, thc class-meeting filled a very real need, and Avas
undoubtedly a stimulus to right living. But this is a different age.
Whatever thc reason may be, Ihe fact
remains that nowadays people are
much more chary of discussing spiritual matters, and especially tlieir own
religious experiences. There is a shyness in this regard almost amounting
to shamefcftcdness, and 1 am inclined
to think that the tendency to greater
reserve  is  inseparable  from  a  more
educated and cultured age.
If church union is ever effected as
outlined by the recent vote taken at
the Victoria Conference, I should not
be surprised if the influence of
the Presbyterian or Congregational
churches operated to the abolition of
lhe class-meeting, and the substitution of larger gatherings, held periodically, for religious instruction and
spiritual upbuilding, but without the
clement of confession, Avhich is the
distinctive feature of the class-meeting as at present organized. It is
doubtful Avhether this Avill be a gain,
but 1 believe it to be inevitable. The
counterpart of the Methodist class-
meeting is found in the confessional
of the Roman Catholic Church. The
cl.'iss-leader' possesses the privileges
without the authority of thc priest,
and occupies a position Avhich the
most sincere religionists hold to be
incongruous in the present day. Thc
proof of this is that it has lost its
influence; that the Methodist Church
has for a long, time winked at the
non-observance of its requirements,
and that today there are tens of
thousands of names retained on the
class-books of Methodism Avhich have
no right to be there and Avhich simply represent quarterly subscriptions
without attendance. Under these circumstances, it -ihould have been Avise
for the church to have boldly
"grasped the nettle," as they did in
thc case of the foot-note, but probably the Aviseacres foresaw that
Church Union would' assuredly settle
it in a natural manner; and so, the
"woodman has spared the ■ tree" for
another year.
Reverting to the foot-note, I can
only say that Avith this evidence of
broad-mindedness congratulations are
due all round. People who are proud
to be called Methodists Avill be able
to share in the innocent amusements
of the world Avithout feeling that they
are laying themselves open to criticism or blame. There will be a notable increase in the attendance at
theatres, and I hope an equally noticeable addition to the ranks of those
who in spite of thc Bridge craze of
the 20th Century still enjoy a quiet
rubber, or a game of crib. 1 do not
think there is anything incongruous
in The Week extending a hearty welcome to such harmless pleasure-seekers through the. medium of thc column
of
BOHEMIAN
The Lost Immortal
By C. H. Bovill
Years ago, a man with Avhom I had
a trivial squabble about nothing in
particular took a very mean but very
effective revenge upon me. Hc put it
about that I had a sympathetic na-
ture. I was the right man, he led
people In believe, to go to when one
had a Aveighty trouble on one's mind.
Xow that is the sort of lie that
slicks. One cannot live it -down. Life
hist a good deal of its gaiety for mc
from the unlucky hour when, in spite
of my vehement denials, that unprincipled ruffian succeeded in convincing
a certain section of the idle throng
Ihal I had a "heart of gold." My appearance and my manner were against
me; Ihe fools Avould admit that; but
nnthing would persuade them to listen to sense about that old heart of
mine,
The consequence is that 1 have become a mere pail into Avhich other
men come and pour their sorrows.
Having done so, they go off to enjoy
a game of billiards Avhile I sit and
rack my brains to find a way out for
them. As far as I can make out, the
chief object people have in consulting
mc is to discover what I think ought
to bc done in their particular cr
—always, if they are to bc be'level,
with the most satisfactory results.
A favorite method of theirs for
testing how much a man alleged to
havc a sympathetic nature can stand
without absolutely losing his reason
is to send him their maiden literary
efforts for criticism and advice. Then,
when thewy have got what they asked
for, they go about telling everybody
what jealous cads literary men are,
and Iioav they never fail to do everything in their power to prevent any
neAV-comer from getting his nose in—
with many other similar manifestations of gratitude.
Knowing this, I Avas none too pleased when one morning the post
brought me a large envelope, out of
which fell half-a-dozen sheets of
closely written foolscap paper and
a covering letter, signed "Ever yours
gratefully, Jasper Pendleburn," which
explained that the enclosures were
some attempts at poetry made by his
second son Archibald, upon which
thc lad Ayas very anxious to havc my
opinion.
In'the ordinary way Colonel Pendleburn is not the sort of person to
Avhose friendship I should have any
business to aspire—he being a county
magnate of some consequence and related by marriage to more than one
noble family. I Avas introduced to
him one day in the Park by a man
named Clutworthy, Avhom I scarcely
knew. Clutworthy explained to me
in a confidential Avhisper that the Pendleburn family wcre in great distress
about a rich aunt, who Avas showing
symptoms of wishing to marry her
butler, and that he had told the Colonel I Avas just the man to advise
them  Avhat to   do in   the   difficulty.
In vain did I try to choke Clutworthy off by explaining that as thc
only aunts I had were neither, rich
nor had they ever shown any leaning
towards butlers, my counsel could be
of little practical value. I had to be
presented to the Colonel; and unluckily 1 was weak enough to murmur
such futilities as "Tut, tut!" "Shocking!" "How very unpleasant for
you!" during thc progress of tha
lengthy narrative with which he proceeded to favour mc. The result Avas
that the old mam went away vowing
that 1 was the most helpful fellow he
had ever met, and after that never
failed lo .call upon me Avhen anything
occurred to disturb the even tenor
of his existence.
Hitherto my activities had been enlisted principally in the direction of
assisting him to straighten* out the
affairs of his eldest son, Rudolph. As
Rudolph Avas in a very smart cavalry
regiment, and Avas, moreover, extremely popular with the hungrier of
our ornaments of musical comedy,
my assistance had to bc invoked with
some frequency. The process of
straightening out Rudolph's affairs
brought tbe Colonel up to town about
four times a year on an average. How
the tastes of any brother of Rudolph's could run in the direction of
anything so inexpensive as the composition of poetry was a puzzle. A
composition Avith creditors I could
have understood.
1 was just about to thrust Master
Archibald's effusion into Ihe drawer
where 1 leave unsolicited MSS. to
stew until 1 feel strong enough to
tackle them, when a line caught my
eye.    I  read on a little farther.
Perhaps, I said lo myself when 1
had got to Ihe end of thc last page
—perhaps il was that having braced
myself up lo endure something loo
fatuous for words, Ihe relief al finding that 1 was for once to be spared
I ad been too much fnr my critical
s.nse. I read through ilu* manuscript
again, saying to myself before I began, "Xow, judge Ihis as if il were
the Avork of somebody you dislike
very much indeed—the maiden effort,
for instance, ol" that critic (alleged)
avIio declared your last novel to bc
thc most entirely silly thing he had
ever read."
Even upon this very unfavourable
hypothesis 1 could not get it out of
my head that what I was reading
was thc Real Thing. Perhaps 1
noHced a blemish here and there
whicii had not previously caught my
eye; but, on the whole, my opinion
remained unchanged. However, a
man cannot rely solely on his own
judgment in these matters, so 1 put
the manuscript in my pocket and
went round to sec old Dietrich, Ile

Sir Ernest, the son of a Cologne
banker, was for many years one of
the late King's confidential business
advisers, and he is an advocate of
closer and more codial relations between Britain and Germany. His
scheme takes the form of the establishment of a fund of £200,000 for
the assistance alike of needy English subjects, seeking to earn a livelihood in Germany and of necessitous Germans who find themselves
in a similar condition in England.
Millionaire Actress.
Miss Mabelle Gillman, the American musical comedy actress who married Mr. W. E. Corey, millionaire
director of the United States Steel
Trust, and retired from the stage
about two years ago, contemplates a
return, for a little while at least, to
the theatre. Her name is chiefly associated with musical comedy—in
London she appeared in "The Casino Girl," "Dolly Varden," and
"Amorelle"—but now Mrs. Corey
thinks that if she had ventured on
more serious work she would have
made a greater reputation.
If her plans for a return to the
stage attain fruition Mrs. Corey Avill
appear in London only, and with this
object in vieAV Mr. Lewis Waller has
been approached to see if he can
arrange for the production here next
May for a short season of "The Taming of the Shrew," in which Mrs.
Corey would play Katherine to his
Petruchio.
Tabard-Street
Tabard-street is in the Borough,
leading from St. George's Church to
thc point Avhere thc Old and thc
Ncav Kent-roads join. It can claim
a history second to no London roadway. In the story of thc England of
the Middle Ages Tabard-street constantly crops up, noAV as thc avenue
down which conquering princes, loaded with spoils from thc French Avars,
returned in triumph, hoav humming
with the shouts ancl cries of tumultuous throngs following Wat Tyler
or Jack Cade, and hoav slowly paced
by Canterbury pilgrims picking their
way to a Becket's shrine. Seven hundred years ago it became a slum, and
slum it has remained ever since. In
the old days it was a main roadway.
That was changed by the creation
of a new road. To-day its by-ways
present a melancholy spectacle. The
raucous-voiced Avomen, dirty and repulsive, hanging about the ipubjlic-
houses, the men stamped with the
manners of loafers or worse, the unhappy children playing around the
roadAvays that edge on the dark and
malodorous courtyards—all tell of an
area of vice, crime, and misery. Tab-
| ard-street should have gone long ago.
It is going to-day never in ils old

in of Coal   Is   Struck   at   Crow's
Nest
\ splendid vein of coal Avas un-
thed one-half mile of Crow's Nest,
C.    Messrs. Hackett   and   James
ngelly  are  the  lucky  discoverers.
:cording to  the   mine    inspector's
port this coal makes coke of a
ll quality. One experiment alone
a wood oven produced coal in a
hours.
The average earnings per head of
those employed in the service of the
company is put down at $2 per day,
making on the basis of that assumption a total wage earned daily of
$33,000, weekly of $231,000 and yearly
of $12,000,000.
Bequest to Humane Work
The Avill of the late Miss Eliza
vynne, Toronto, disposes of an es-
valued at $300,000. Of this $103,-
0 is given for humane Avork among
imals. Thc British union for thc

Rossland Apples
VV. R. Braden & Son of Rossland
ve received a consignment of about
0 pounds of apples, Yellow Trans-
rents, which were grown on the Co-
mbia and Kootenay road. They are
m, sound and luscious and of good
:e. When Rossland makes known
the world that she can groAV such
vely fruit, her success as a horticul-
ral district is assured.
Has 11,000 Workers in Montreal
The Canadian Pacific Railway Co.
s 11,092 employees within the city
undaries of Montreal. This is
irnt from a census which has just
en taken from the official pay roll.
While a large number of these em-
>yces are unmarried the preponder-
e of married over single is so great
t it is estimated that tlie total
ber  of  persons   dependent  upon
se pay rolls for a living is upwards
30,000.
Women Make Good Wages
Sixty Avomen have gone from Spokane to Walla Walh to pick prunes,
and they are making as high as $3.50
a day at the work. The crop this
year is heavy, and stewed prunes
promises to be a popular article of
diet in many boarding houses next
winter.
Kootenay Energy
Forest fires on the mainland coast
are said to be destroying much timber. In the neighboring states the
damage has been tremendous. But
fro the energy and ability shown in
handling the situation in thc Kootenay
there would have been the same story
to tell here.
A Victoria Man to Prince Rupert
J. A. Mara, of Victoria, formerly
speaker of the Legislature, spent a
few hours in Prince Rupert recently.
He Avas on his Avay to Stewart where
as a director of the Portland Canal
Mining Company, he will examine into conditions there. He will spend a
few days there before returning south.
Mr. Mara expects the concentrator
which his. company is installing will
bc ready to begin work very soon and
then shipping will commence from the
mine. In company with his old friend,
C. W. D. Clifford, of Kitselas, Mr.
Mara made a tour around the city
while here.
Good Roads
The good roads being built by the
provincial government this year
throughout the province is perfectly
in keeping with the AlcBride administration. The work is being done right
and the roads Avill bc of lasting benefit to the country.
Kootenay Mineral Exhibition
The success of the Kootenay mineral exhibit in taking every award
but one at the Vancouver exhibition
is a tribute to the mineral resources
of this territory that must have a
good effect. It cannot but attract attention to great natural riches as yet
barely touched but awaiting only
capital and intelligent management
to reward enterprise and to sustain a
large population in prosperity.
Kaslo and Sandon Line
The Great Northern railway has
decided to reconstruct thc Kaslo and
Sandon line, recently burned, as far
as Sproules. The government has
put a large gang at Avork opening the
wagon road from Sproules to connect
with Whitewater. In the spring thc
railway will reconstruct the line to
Sandon. its former terminal.
Royal N.W.M.P.
The announcement that thc Royal
North West Mounted Police will not
be withdrawn from Alberta and Saskatchewan for at least five years
(says the Calgary "Daily News"),
will give decided satisfaction throughout the West. The value of this force
is more fully appreciated on the prairies than it possibly can be in Ottawa,
where knowledge of its work must be
gleaned from mere Avritten reports
and tables of statistics. The Mounted Police havc been a power in the
enforcement of law and order and
the real record of their usefulness
and influence cannot bc transcribed
to paper.
Le Roi Liquidation
"I am forced," Mr. W. A. Carlyle says, "to the conclusion that no
more such ore bodies can be found
within the property of thc company
at Rossland."
The directors recommend that A.
J. McMillan, the present managing
director, be appointed liquidator. No
one has thc same extensive knowledge of the property of the company
and conditions existing there, or
Avould be so likely as he to realise
the assets of thc company to thc best
adA'antage.
The directors very much regret
that the unsatisfactory results of the
extensive exploration work recently
undertaken make it necessary to discontinue operation of the company;
but they are of opinion that the
course now proposed is in the best
interests of thc shareholders.
A Cold Winter
Old timers say that there is every
indication of cold weather and they
have many reasons for their theory.
The bush rats arc boring deep holes.
Bears are already beginning to dig
out trees for their long sleep. Gophers have made for the underground.
Squirrels and chipmonks have been
unusually industrious all summer
long. They say it will be the coldest
Avinter for years and there appears
to be harmony among the old timers
in this opinion.
One View
Thc Inland Sentinel waxes wrath
because The Standard expressed some
disappointment on Sir Wilfrid Laurier's speech on Thursday evening. If
the piffle to which the prime minister
and his colleague, thc minister of railways and canals, treated an intelligent Kamloops audience Avas satisfying to The Sentinel, it avos not to
the great majority of those who attended the meeting with the hope of
hearing a statesmanlike address by
the leader of thc Canadian Government.
Catholics Can't Be Masons
In a strong address Archbishop
Archambault declared that no good
Roman Catholic could become a
member of the Masonic order.
Why Not Victoria
Prince Rupert charges a nominal
fee for thc use of portions of thc
streets by builders (luring construction.
Use for the New Navy
Mr. Borden certainly makes the
Ottawa gentlemen sit up. The other
day hc commented upon the fact that
he Grand Trunk Pacific Avould be severed at Quebec OAving to the fall of
thc Laurier bridge. Advertisements
for ferry boats were at once issued.
This was prompt action. But why
buy ferries when thc navy might be
used as a part of the line?—Mail and
Express, Toronto.
May Go to England
A suggestion is now before the
managers of the first Canadian National Apple Show that thc entire exhibit at the Show bc taken as it is to
England as a standing display of the
pomological resources of British Columbia. Thc idea is that thc provincial government shall be asked to
take charge of the undertaking.
Mr. F. Curzon's Marriage
Mr. Frank Curzon, manager of thc
Prince of Wales and Wyndham Theatres, Avas married on Monday morning to Miss Isabel Jay.
After the wedding breakfast Mr.
and Mrs. Curzon left London by the
2:15 boat train from Charing Cross
for thc Continent, where they will
make a motor tour extending over

YACHTING NOTES
The Victoria Yacht Club provided
entertainment last Saturday Avith a
good programme of motor-boat races.
The Aveather Avas favourable though
there Avas a choppy sea off Brotchie
Ledge, but thc boats all rounded the
beacon Avithout mishap. The fastest
time over the course Avas made by
the "Gypsy," oAvned by Mr. Gibb, and
built by B. Temple of Victoria, her
performance making her the winner
of the Kirkpatrick Cup.
Thc most exciting race of the afternoon was that between the
"Varuna" and the "Starlight," and
though the "Varuna" seemed to have
slightly the best of it, the result Avas
doubtful until unfortunately the

was unable to finish thc course.
The harbor presented quite a lively
appearance, as besides a large number of power boats there Avere the
sailing craft with pleasure parties
aboard all out to see the fun. Everything went Avithout a hitch and the
regatta Avas much enjoyed.
*   *   *
An interesting article in 'Tower
Boating" for thc current month eulogizes Victoria as being an ideal spot
both for sailing and power boating.
The Avritcr, Mr. Zimmerman, says:
"Blessed with a splendid location ancl
climate, few places are better suited
for AWiter sports. Here, too, the
sport of yachting is old—thc Yacht
Club dates back to 1887 or thereabouts. In 1907, times were changed.
Thc site of thc old Club House Avas
taken up by commercial enterprises.
Boats wcre sold, ancl gradually thc
Club was (dying—almost forgotten..
Then came Granville Cuppage ancl
his cohorts. A new Club House has
been erected and boats arc* being
built."
Mr. Zimmerman refers to thc increasing popularity of the motor boat
in  Victoria  as  well  as other  places.
This emphasizes the timeliness of the
Victoria Yacht Club's desire that it
should, as a Club, build a racing craft
to represent Victoria in the International sailing races. Its members
foresee that the motor boat and the
auxiliary cruiser Avill appeal most to
the individual yachtsman Avho needs
a general purpose boat and to whom
a racing craft Avould be almost a
useless luxury. No definite plans
have been formulated as yet, but it
is likely that next year Victoria Avill
have a Challenger for the coveted
Alexandra Cup.
Mr. Zimmerman also points out the
need of a Club, and Club action in
every kind of sport. The success of
the International Regatta held in Victoria last July Avas almost Avholly
due to the organized interest of the
officers and members, and to thc careful detail Avhich marked all arrangements. These things were Avell marked by thc visiting yachtsmen and Mr.
Zimmerman, who is thc Seattle Editor
of "Power Boating," gives the Victoria Yacht Club a well deserved
word of praise when he states thc
fact that the Victoria Club in particular demonstrated thc advantages
of sound organization in the recent
Regatta.
*    *    t
The finish of thc afternoon's motor
boat races last Saturday Avas marked
by an innovation in thc shape of afternoon tea in the Club House to ladies ancl friends of the yachtsmen.
Thc Secretary saw to it that a line
oil stove Avas installed in the Club
House and quite a party gathered to
partake of the cup that does not inebriate. It is thc intention of the Club
to make Saturday afternoons sociable
and the Club House a popular rendezvous for everybody interested in
power boating or yachting.
The sailing races arranged to take
place on the 3rd instant have been
postponed as owing to the holiday on
Monday many of the yachtsmen wished to take the opportunity to go away
a cruise. The races Avill be sailed in
the near future, and particular interest Avill be attached to the cruiser's
race, for which Mr. W. Pigott has
presented a handsome cup.    .

Chinese Labour
To the Editor:
Two politicians have shown iheir
astuteness during the visit of the
Premier of British Columbia to this
Province—of course, I refer to Premier Laurier and Premier McPricle.
It cannot be expected that Mr.
Laurier, avIio spoke so much, would
always satisfy his audience, and his
audiences perhaps showed their general appreciation of Mr. Laurier by
not raising discussion on m'nor
points: even although hc said that
one of the subjests of greatest' importance from an Imperial point of
vieAv and one of greatest importance
to thc Province did not satisfy very
many. I refer to the Labour Question and his Exclusion of Chinese
labour as so much wanted here
Several years ago Mr. Laurier did
not consider it an Imperial quesl'on.
He sent a Commission to enquire
whether thc people here Avanted
Chinese labour? A host of tailor.-; and
a few others said that they did not.
We Avere little accustomed to such
enquiry ancl went about our usual
business and old friends. Mr. Beanlands, who knew the situation, wirl a
few others spoke well. Up to that
time I think that few in Ottawa knew
how much we avctc indebte 1 to
Chinese  for  house  servants  and  for
farm labourers. Many farmers had
bought land, relying on this labour.
Every house in Victoria had a sleep-
inging chamber for the Chinaman
cook and our fine new city builds
them still. I do not suppose that Premier Laurier had a dinner in our Province, Avhich Avas not cooked by a
Chinaman.
Mr. Laurier, when he raised the
head-tax to $500 thought he was
pleasing the inhabitants here. But in
a very short time more than one
Champer of Commerce passed resolutions in favour of Chinese labour
and, of their own accord, some 500
ladies petitioned the Chamber of
Commerce here on the subject. The
question had become a political one
and it is so now.
Thc Chinese all hope to go home
to China and are easily managed.
As Avorkers, no race requires less
looking after. If Mr. Laurier were
to consider the case as has been clone,
I am told that in the wheat producing districts, only adapting his regulations to the Province, hc might
hope to have the ladies here and
many others, saying, "Thank Laurier
for this."
He might adopt this motto for his
guidance: "Act in thc Living Present."

In Hil Father's Footsteps — "May
Lucy and I play at keeping shop in the

the sweet uses of advertisement. "Yes,"

youngster, "we'll pretend we don't advertise!"
An MJP.ty Title.—"Move on tliere!"
cried the driver of a carriage to a loiterer in a narrow street. "Move on
there!" "Move on yerself, then!" replied
the pedestrian, whose burly form prevented all vehicular progress. "I'll move
on when I'm ready!" The occupier of
the carriage put his head out of the
window. "Go and boll your face!" shouted the obstructor derisively on seeing
it. "Do you know who I am, sir?" said
the gentleman. "I have 'M.P.' at the end
of my name!" "That's nothin'," retorted
the man. 'Every shrimp 'as that!"

MUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 3)
has many new compositions in store
for the Grand patrons next week.
A quality musical number is the
Hughes Musical Trio of versatile
instrumentalists. The trio are excellent musicians and whether on brass,
'cello or violin, play in a manner well
worth listening to. This offering has
just the right coloring of brilliancy
and genius to make it delightful.
Roland Carter is not only a comedian of high rank, but he is also a
capable playwright. "Vacation Time,"
a satirical classic is his latest accomplishment. The oddity is a travesty
on swagger prison life. The stage
represents the yards and walls of a
prison. The inmates are the pink of
perfection in everything but striped
clothes and to them prison life is a
"Vacation." The act is full of bright
bits and keeps an audience in a
laugh with its musical and wordy
comicalities.
Pretty and vivacious Hetty Urma
returns to the Grand next week in an
entirely new repertoire of songs and
impersonations. Miss Urma comes
direct from a successful Continental
tour. The attractive personality of
this clever artist, and her physical
and vocal charms combined with
her talent and grace, make her presence ever welcome on any bill.
There are innumerable laughter
creators in the bill next week, but
foremost of these are those irresistibly funny folks, William Lester "and
Blanca Moore. Their original absurdities are amusing to an unusual
degree. Their offering also contains
popular musical hits, presented by
Miss Moure. The eccentric characterization by Mr. Lester is extremely
clever.
Besides these acts there will be the
song by Mr. Price and the moving
pictures.

To Wine Drinkers
Every well informed gentleman of the present age,
Avho is a drinker of wine knows that G. H. Mumm &
Co.'s "Extra Dry" is conceded by connoisseurs to be
the purest and most superb of all the naturally dry
champagnes imported into this country.
We Avould ask these people, who ate accustomed to
and desire the best procurable, the genuine "Extra
Dry," to see that thc 'bottle they are supplied with
bears the rose colored capsule, because none is genuine
without this particular mark. Many spurious imitations of G. H. Mumm & Co.'s unrivalled "Extra Dry"
are upon the market, but when the bottle labelled
"Extra Dry" carries the pink cap one is sure of having
the genuine first-class article,, the very choicest
naturally dry champagne possible to procure in any
part of the Avorld.
We simply draw our patrons' and friends' attention
to this in order that they may not be deceived.

The Human Hand
Dr. Robert William Coe, avIio was
with one exception the oldest Fellow
of the Royal College of Surgeons of
England, has died at his residence in
Bristol, aged eighty-nine.
Speaking on thc excision of the
hand before the British Medical Association Dr. Coe said that it gave
him more pain to see a hand or arm
removed than to witness any other
operation. "The hand," he said, "is
the exponent of a man's emotions,
the assertion* of his rights, the sense
of his will. It is the giver of formal expression to the genius of the
artist, the engineer, and the mechanic. A man's individuality seems
more affected by this mutilation than
by any other."
"U. S. A."
The Post Office on Monday issued
the following statement:
"It has been observed that the initials *'U. S. A.' are sometimes used
to indicate the country of destination
of correspondence for the Union of
South Africa (which comprises the
provinces of the Cape of Good Hope,
Natal, Orangia, and the Transvaal).
These initials are customarily used
as an abbreviation for 'United States
of America,' and their use as a contraction for 'Union of South Africa'
should be avoided as likely to lead to
confusion.
"It is sufficient if, on correspondence for the Union of South Africa,
the name of the town of destination
be followed by that of the province
of the Union in which it is situate."
Viceroy's Council
The name of the Right Hon. Syed
Ameer Ali—who was the first Indian
to be named of the Privy Council—
is freely mentioned at Simla as the
successor of Mr. Sinha as legal member of the Viceroy's Executive Council.
The significance of this appointment, if made, is that whereas Mr.
Sinha is a Hindu Mr. Ameer Ali is
a Mohommedan. Mr, Sinha was the
first Indian to have a scat on the
Viceroy's Council.
Mr. Ameer Ali is one of the most
distinguished of Indian jurists. He
has Avritten much in English on Islamic history and antiquities, and his
influence and advice have been of
great help to the progressive parties
in Turkey ancl Persia.
He was called to the Bar (Inner
Temple) in 1873, and was the first
Mahommedan judge ' of the High
Court of Bengal.
Canada and the Tariff   .
We find Sir Wilfrid Laurier declaring in the most uncompromising
manner that the Canadian Government has based its policy upon preferential dealing Avith the Mother-
country, ancl that nothing will induce it to change its attitude. What
Western farmers want is freer trade
within the Empire. . . . Tariff
Reformers here are at one Avith Sir
Wilfrid Laurier in believing that in
an ideal Avorld Free Trade Avould be
thc ideal policy, but that in the
world as it is Ave have to bc content
with as much Free Trade as is justifiable in A'iew of our actual circumstances. They are also at one with
him, and thc great mass of the people
of Canada, in holding that the Free
Trade which is perfectly justifiable
and practicable can bc largely attained, in an Empire so vast and so
various, hy preferential arrangements between the communities that
compose it.—The Times.
One of the daily newspapers taken in
little Mary's family offers a three-dollar
prize for the hest sayings of little children. Mary, who had just learned to
read, loved to spell her way through
these funny stories, and watched for
them every week.
One day she appeared at the door of
her mother's room, much excited and
dragging nlong her protesting baby
brother. "Sweetheart, what Is the matter?" asked her mother, coming to the
rescue.
"Oh. nothing, mother. I only was trying to make him say something funny
to send tn the newspaper, for I want
some money so badly for a pair of roller-skates."
"THE  LOST IMMORTAL"
(Continued from Page 4)
would knoAA*, if anybody did. What
old Dietrich chose to say would havc
the force of a ukase.
Of course, the highest authority
upon English poetry would be a
German; that is in the nature of
things, Germans being the only
people Avho take any real interest in
English literature. Dietrich had
given up his life to a study of the
subject. The crumbling of a dynasty
is to that old man a lesser portent
is to that old man a lesser portent
than the arrival of a real poet. But
for gout he might have been one of
the Meistersingers himself; a constant ache in the great toe has, however, turned him instead into a
particularly relentless critic.
I found him in an evil humour.
He extended to mc a very pressing
invitation to go away as quickly as
possible. 1 begged him to bear with
me. Half-an-hour—that was all I
asked.
"I have something here I Avant to
read to you and ask your opinion
about," 1 pleaded, fishing out the
precious manuscript.
"Nothing of your oavii, I hope?"
he said suspiciously.
I reassured him; ancl then, Avhen
he had sunk back Avith a resigned
sigh into the huge armchair in which
most of his Avaking hours are spent,
I began to read.
"Strange!" he grunted musingly,
when I had put the last sheet aside
ancl sat patiently aAvaiting his verdict. "Strange! My memory is
goot"—a slight difficulty with his
dentals is the only indication he ever
gives of the country of his origin—
"my memory is goot, but I cannot
place that."
"Of course you can't!" , I replied
triumphantly. "You've never heard
it before."
Hc gave mc plainly to understand
that he believed me to bc lying
when I told him the facts as to the
authorship of the verse I had been
reading.
"No, no!" he insisted, with a vehement shake of the head. "It is not
possible. They are all gone—the men
who could Avrite like that. There
will never bc another generation of
them. They could not exist in an
age which creases its trousers and
reads the halfpenny newspapers."
It was a long time before I could
induce him to take my word for it
that a twentieth century brain had
produced the fragment of an epic
which lay in my hands. Then he gave
mc orders to go by thc lirst possible
train to the distant Hampshire village in which the Pendleburns lived
ancl bring back Avith me thc phenomenon, that he might be inspected in
thc flesh.
While Ave were talking, some of
Dietrich's friends — scarcely less
eminent in the field of criticism than
thc sage himself—dropped in; and
for the rest of the evening we sat
round the fire smoking our host's
vile oily cigars, while he—deeming
me unworthy for so high an office—
declaimed to us anew Archibald
Pcndleburn's magnificent rolling lines.
Ancl not a man there, as hc listened,
felt any doubt but that a new Immortal had come to gladden the
world.
The next morning found me in the
train. As it droned leisurely along
I tried to picture the delighted
amazement which would fall upon
that little Hampshire household
when they learned from mc—with the
high authority of. the renowned Dietrich at my back—that they had in
their midst a genius—a superman—
the Great One for Avhom the world
had been waiting these two hundred
years past. Remembering the state
of excited pride into which the
Colonel had been thrown over so
small a matter as the selection of
his son Rudolph for a place in the
All-England Polo Team, 1 began to
have fears for his mental balance;
when hc found that his other son had
been selected by the Fates to 'fill thc
aching void in English epic poetry.
There would be champagne for dinner tonight, unless I Avas greatly mistaken.
It was a pleasant, restful scene that
met my eye as 1 strolled tip the Pen
