have an easy task in defeating Mr. Ralph
Smith. As expected, Dr. King will be the
Liberal standard-bearer in Kootenay; he is
a popular man ancl will poll the largest
vote possible for his party, but The Week
still expects to see Mr. Goodeve returned
by an even larger majority than last time.
As not expected, Alderman Stevens carried the Conservative convention at Vancouver; he is an aggressive, up-to-date,
well-posted man; on some subjects such as
municipal ownership, he holds advanced
views, ancl while his nomination came as a
surprise, it only goes to show what excellent material the Conservative party has in
reserve in the great progressive city of
Vancouver. It will be a goocl fight because

H. Shepherd has received the Con-
[e nomination for Nanaimo and wil!
week. The first comment which must inevitably be made upon this week's tournament is the great advance which cricket
has made in ancl around the city of Victoria. A few years ago there was only
one first-class team; now there are five,
ancl if Strawberry Vale, instead of entering a weak team, had joined forces with
Saanich, contributing two or three of their
best men, it is not at all unlikely that the
outsiders would have been in the Final.
Another gratifying feature of the contest
is the strength imparted to the Esquimalt
team by the addition of the Navy representatives. Years ago this was one of the most
potent factors in Victoria cricket, and even
the promise of its return will be hailed
with delight.   To all the local clubs a word
vides honours with him. The match with
Vancouver on Wednesday showed what a
fine side Victoria has, and once more it remained for a York to save the game at
what might have been a critical stage. J.
W. D. York played one of the prettiest and
soundest innings in his career, making 69
in faultless style without the semblance of
a chance ancl completely breaking clown the
Vancouver bowling. It is not a little singular that in this, the severest match of the
series, the change bowlers, Collison and
Sholto Gillespie, should have been much
more successful than Galliher and L.
York, which shows the advantage of a
second string. At one stage of the game,
when only three wickets were clown for
94, it looked as if Vancouver might win,
but with the fall of the fourth wicket the
change bowlers began to be deadly, and
four other wickets fell for three runs. It
is many years since Victoria made as large
a score as 229 against Vancouver ancl never
before in a Tournament. The Victoria innings was marred by one regrettable incident, when Pilkington stubbornly held his
ground and allowed his partner to be run
out. A goocl deal might be said about this
ancl probably has been said; the least that
The Week cares to say is that the exhibition ought to cost Pilkington hir place on
the team. All cricket-lovers will now be
looking forward to the visit of the Kelowna
team on Monday next ancl the Philadelphia team on Friday ancl Saturday, whicii
will close the cricketing season. Here Victoria will have to meet men of different
calibre from those who tike part in the
local tournament. They will need the very
best representative team 'hat can be got
together, but if all the best men are available the visitors will not have an easy task-
to win. It would he unfair to conclude this
article without a word of praise for the
excellent performances of the Seattle-.
Portland team during the week. The lovers
of cricket have stood shoulder to shoulder
in maintaining the best traditions of the
game ancl have made scores of friends by
the manner in which they have played it.
THE RECIPROCITY GR1I
candidate, but on the great issue now before the people there is no doubt that Mr.
Stevens will be successful. The coining
week will see the campaign fully outlined
by both parties. All the strongest men will
be taking part in one of the hottest fights
ever known in the Province ancl certainly
in a contest which means more for the future of Canada than any whicii has yet
been waged within its borders.
CRICKET TOURNAMENT—At the
time of going to press the semifinals and finals in the Victoria
Cricket Tournament have still to be played,
but it is gratifying to be able to congratulate the Tournament Committee on a week
of first-class cricket and a series of games
which have given pleasure to thousands of
people. If a team from the Interior could
have been added, that is a Kootenay or a
Kootenay-Okanagan team, the programme
would have been perfect. This deficiency
will, however, be made up to some extent
by the visit  of  the  Kelowna  team  next
of praise is due for the admirable manner
in whicii they are building iip their teams;
they have secured a number ol" young
players who bid fair to become conspicuous
cricketers. One could name two nr three
on each team worthy of a place in any representative Victoria XI. Of the Victoria
team itself it is only possible to speak in
terms of the highest praise. Without doubt
it is the strongest batting aggregation
which the club has ever had. In the XI
whicii played against Vancouver there was
not one man who could not be fairly counted on to make a big score. This faculty
by no means belongs solely to the recognised stalwarts of the team. In Sholto Gillespie, Lever, Galliher, Wright and Cane,
all comparatively new-comers, Victoria has
a group of all-round competent cricketers.
Of the bunch, Sholto Gillespie has distinguished himself the most, having made
as great a success with the ball as with thc
bat. It is no disparagement of the sterling qualities of his elder brother to say
that at the present moment hc fairly di-
DEBT COLLECTING AGENCIES
—The Week has been asked to
deal with a mass of correspondence
which has passed between the Dominion
Rating & Mercantile Agency, having offices
in Victoria and Vancouver, and a widow
who shall be designated "Mrs. IL," living
at Gordon Head. The facts are as follows:
.More than two years ago, during the lifetime of Mr. H., a local artisan is said to
have done some work for whicii Mr. H. did
not pay him. The widow slates that the
work was of a trivial character and was
voluntary, because when it was finished and
her husband asked what there was to pay,
the man told him "nothing at all." He that
as it may, no bill was presented during the
life-lime of Mr. II. and nothing was heard
of it fnr two years after his death. In
July the Dominion Hating & Mercantile
Agency made application for payment of
an account of $20.00 for the work in question. Thc application was made by means
of a circular, which contains the following
specific statement: "Our client has left the
settlement of it entirely with us." As the
application was disregarded a second letter
was sent by the agency signed "J. .Menzies." This letter was dated July l'-'th,
1911, and emanated from Room 15, Green
Block, Broad Street, Victoria. The concluding sentence is significant: "We trust
you will not force us to use extreme measures for the collection of this account, but
will get busy before it is too late." A further letter dated July 22nd, 1' 11, issued
from the same office, signed "J. F. I'res-
sey," which concludes with the following
paragraph: "After this lapse of time I
think it very poor policy to begin to kick.
The best thing you can do is to settle this

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1911
I was inadvertently led astray on
the occasion of my last visit to Vancouver;   at any rate to a certain ex-
■ I tent.    1   don't   suppose   anyone   who
knows the Lounger will he surprised
at this, because he lays no special
claims to worldly wisdom and when
a man of high public position commits himself to a specilic statement
and backs it up with many circumstantial details, the Lounger is not
thc only person, who being . a
stranger, would be taken in. I am referring to the very specilic story
which I introduced into my gossiping column anent the Dominion
Trust Company and their Victoria
site. That part of the statement affecting the willingness of the Company to sell the site and the abandonment of their building plans was correct; it has since been sold to Mr.
Rorison of Vancouver. Where I was
misinformed was with respect to the
circumstances under which Mr. Mathers relinquished the Managing Directorship. Tt is quite true that on
returning from London he did not resume his position with the Company,
but,* instead, handed iu his resignation. It is also true that Mr. Arnold
was promptly installed by the Directorate as his successor, but it is not
true that this was done on the inia-
tive of Mr. Arnold himself; nor is it
true that the change was effected by
means of a sale of treasury stock.
The matter rested entirely between
the Board of Directors and Mr. Mathers. There has been no cheap sale
of treasury stock since December,
igog. To this extent I wish to correct my story simply to relieve Mr.
Arnold from the suspicion of having
brought about Mr. Mathers' resignation by underhand methods. I think
I ought to say further that Mr. Arnold enjoys a high reputation as a successful business man and in the short
time that he has occupied his new
position has transacted an enormous
amount of business.

. It is not often that I leave the sad
sea waves in order to enjoy a stroll
through Beacon Hill Park on a Sunday afternoon, but last Sunday, having an appointment in town, I thought
it would be a pleasant way of arriving
at my destination. I was surprised
to see how very many people patronise the park now-a-days when the
band is playing. There must have
been double the number that I ever
saw there last year, and I naturally
looked round to see whether additional seating accommodation had
been made for the assembled multitudes. But not an extra seat could
I see. Benches are not very expensive things and one would have
thought that the Parks Commissioners would havc seen to it that there
wcre more of them provided. Another thing which struck me was that
the intervals between the band selections were far too long. I approached the Park from Cook street and
the last strains of one piece were
dying away as I entered upon Park
1'ioulevarde. I walked right over the
hill, sat down for at least live
minutes conversing with a friend and
rose to take my leave before the
hand began to play again. Seeing
that the Sunday afternoon's engagement is only for two hours, one is
inclined to think that more time
might be spent in playing and less
in waiting. On occasions like this
one's thoughts unwittingly wander
back to the historic occasion wheu
lhe same band went down to welcome the present King, then Duke
of York. Being under orders to play
the National Anthem at the psychological moment the band preferred t<>
.wait in silence for a couple of hours,
* rather than to enliven the monotony
with a few stirring strains, and when
the Prince did arrive it played just
one-half of the vei'sc and promptly
retired. It is a great mistake in thi*-
world to do an atom more than is
,- dually  required of you
be called a liar if I venture the opin
ion that the band fully realises  thei
truth of this?
We hear a lot now-a-days about
Oriental labour; about the white
man's country, and about the difficulty of obtaining household help. I
lind that one's own opinion is apt to
vary according to the company in
which one finds oneself. For instance, when 1 am conversing with
a lady at her wits' end for a cook, 1
sympathize with her tirades against a
Government which imposes a head-
tax on Chinese servants and assure
her that if I had my way every cook
should be allowed in with a bonus
attached. When, however, I talk
with an indignant person on Government Street who scoffs at a country
which will permit the employment of
Chinamen to clear away the ruins
whilst white men are standing idle,
I gravely nod my head and make as
few remarks on the subject as possible. From all of which you will
gather, and quite correctly too, that
I, like Gallic of old, care not at all
for such things. But some isolated
instances do rather excite my indignation, and I want to say right here
that I do not approve of Chinese
chauffeurs for white men. If a
wealthy Chinaman owns a car it is
only natural that he should hire one
of his own race to drive the same,
but it sticks in my gorge somewhat
that a white man who can afford to
buy a car, and cannot therefore plead
poverty, should combine in one and
the same person his cook and his
chauffeur. I am told that this is being done at the present time by a
gentleman in Victoria who owns a
car and it does not seem to me quite
right. Of course, this is a free country and there is no law against such
a curious combination, but at the
same time there are some things
which "stick out a yard" as being
white  men's    jobs and    that  of the
chauffeur is one.
*   *   *
On Tuesday last I ran across a
man whom I had not seen for some
years ancl the first thing he said to
me after exchanging the usual greetings, was, "Why on earth don't you
write about those beastly chimneys?"
Coming fresh from civilization into
Victoria he had been accustomed to
modern systems where furnaces consumed their own smoke. He really
was talking so loudly that I had to
quieten him down and told him that
we didn't dare say anything about
the nuisance, because when we did
the manufacturers and others bitterly complained that no sooner did they
do anything for the good of Victoria
than someone came a-knocking.
"Don't you realise," I said, "that
these smoking chimneys are proof
positive to the whole world that Victoria is a busy manufacturing centre
and that we are the wonder and envy
of the universe because we manage to
combine residential with manufacturing advantages?" When he had thoroughly digested this, which he did
with a very bad grace, he told me
that the whole of the circumstances
reminded him of what happened in a
little Irish village whose name I have
forgotten. It appears that every year
during the holiday season there were
two or three drowning fatalities,
which naturally somewhat marred
the general harmony of the occasion.
So a very practical and kindly old
lady made the villagers a present of
a nice little life-boat which could be
launched easily and be controlled by
two men. The villagers with true
Irish grace accepted her gift, but
when her back was turned, or in
other words, when she had returned
to London, promptly lore the boat to
pieces, saying that tlie possession of
a life-boat to save people from
drowning was a bad advertisement
i'or lhe place, calling attention as it
did. to the fact that accidents sOlfie-
nd  shall   11 times  happened  there.    I   must  cm-
fess that it would seem to be rather
absurd to expect to advertise the city
as a business centre by means of
chimneys which by the nuisance they
occasion prove that they are in very
bad business hands. And in this connection I might say that word still
comes to me that the unfortunate
dwellers in the Fountain district continue to drink their tea sweetened
with soot instead of sugar and have
perforce to keep their windows shut
during the hot spell, lest by having
them open they endure a worse thing
than suffocation.
* *   *
It was balm to my spirit to read an
item in Tuesday's Colonist calling attention to the dangerous state of the
pavement just outside the Post-office.
At all times in wet weather this little
slope is a snare and a delusion and
at the present moment it is more than
usually perilous. I am waiting" patiently, as I have waited for many a
long day, for some person of importance, who is the possessor of a
long purse and a vindictive temperament, to hurt himself seriously on
some of our sidewalks and to bring
action against the city.
* *   *
f had a most interesting little deputation up to the office to see me
the other day. I heard a curious,
scuffling sort of noise outside the door
and when I opened it I found three
dogs, tiie leader of whom was a fine
collie. He acted as spokesman and
asked me to express the gratitude of
the dogs of Victoria to those tradesmen who had acted on the hints
made in these columns and had put
out troughs of drinking water for
their humbler friends. I assured my
callers that I would give the matter
my earnest attention and on behalf
of the dogs I take this opportunity of
saying "thank-you" to the many who
have remembered that both the Governor of North Carolina and the Governor of South Carolina were noted
for their kindness to dumb animals
and that neither of them ever asked
the momentous question without seeing to it that there was something
liquid at hand for the dogs. By the
way, before the deputation retired it
gave a grateful bark in appreciation
of the services of the

Unremitting work on the claims at
23-Mile that are now well known is
achieving splendid results. The "black
eye" given to Steamboat Mountain
was a positive boon to 23-Mile Camp.
The miners knew that henceforth
pocket samples or even small sacks
were away below par; they had to
havc rock in place and lots of it before there would be any use inviting
a capitalist to send an examining engineer. One new feature is the discovery of rich galena just south of
23-Mile, word and samples of which
were brought in to Stewart recently
by F. C. Whitwell who visited the
camp and located two claims on his
way back from the Klesilkwa.
More  Platinum
Immediately opposite Slocan Junction on the opposite side of the
Kootenay River is the latest scene
of the platinum rush, fourteen claims
having been staked on the dyke along
tllis waterway during the past fortnight by a syndicate composed of
Alfred jelfs, R. A. Brown, Bob Elliott, Mr. R. McQuarrie and Hugh
W. Robertson. According to figures
exhibited by McQuarrie and Robertson, the highest assay from samples
from this dyke ran $47(1 to the ton,
and the lowest assay gave a figure
of $72 to the ton.
THE BOSTON BUTLER'S PROGRAMME
A cultivated Boston woman of great musical taste was once* much annoyed by the
whistling cf the butler, who believed himself
alone in the house. The sound fretted her
artistic soul.
"Joseph.'* she called at last, .from the bead
nf tbe baelc stairs, "please do net whistle
those vulgar rag-time things. They irritate
me."
"Certainly, ma'am," refurnetl Joseph. "Hut,"
he eontimud, with unexpected, spirit, "you

Ten Miles of
Cellars
The "Caves" or Cellars, hewn out of solid rock on both sides
of which G. H. Mumm & Co. store their champagne aggregate
over ten miles in length.
These caves are not only famous for their great size, but for
keeping the wine at a cool and even temperature.
G. H. Mumm & Co. have an uncheangeable rule to use only
grapes of the finest vineyards, and thereby give fullest value
for the cost of their Champagnes—hence their superior
quality, as can readily be proven by making comparisons.
G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Champagne reigns supreme at every
banquet. It has been rightly called "The King of Wines."
Anywhere in the civilized world today there is no high class
wedding banquet or prominent function complete without
"Extra Dry" or "Selected Brut." Call for either at your
favourite club, cafe or hotel. Your dealer can supply you
with a case for home use.

the determination,
kt week thc Williams Stock
lany will appear in a charming
Icrn comedy, entitled "The
est Girl in Dixie," a play which
BeeH well received wherever it
Ippeared. The scene is laid in
louthern states and the Williams
Stock Co. promise an excellent staging. During the evening between the
acts Miss D'Oyle will give a singing
specialty.
The Empress Theatre
The big turn advertised at the Empress Theatre this week has been
that of the Austrian violinist Franz
Meisel, but as he did not put in an
appearance at thc performance which
the writer of this paragraph attended,
it is impossible to attempt any kind
of a criticism of his work. Russell &
Smith have the very best kind of a
minstrel troupe; the voices are all
good, the songs are well chosen and
the choruses are excellent. It is not
often now-a-days that one can find a
minstrel troupe where the patter is
subordinated to the singing; but this
is the case with Russell & Smith. A
delightfully ridiculous ancl amusing
sketch is being contributed by Lew
Orth & Lillian, tourists in Egypt;
their dialogue, which keeps the house
in fits of laughter abounds in local
allusions and their general get-up is
entrancing. Wclda & Serano are
equilibrists and gymnasts of no mean
skill, and there is the usual dancing
turn interpolated during the course of
the programme.
Romano's Theatre
Dear old Max, the ever-popular victim of misfortune has been brought
back to town by Romano's this week,
and on Monday and Tuesday had to
go to work. 1 think that Max is as
much of a favourite in cinematographic circles as Buster Brown was in
Sunday Supplements. Pathe Frcres
were to the front with some excellent views of modern Venice.
The Crystal Theatre
"A Moral Coward" was the title of
a splendid drama at the Broad Street
house during the early part of the
week which was excellently staged
and excited the keenest interest in all
parts of the house. As usual Gau-
mont provided a graphic diary of the
world's great events and comedy was
to the fore with the childish doings
of a would-be great explorer.
The Majestic Theatre
Married men with a penchant for
members of the fair sex other than
their wives ought all to have been at
the Majestic in the*,niiddle of the
week to see the awful punishment
which visited the hero of the film entitled "His Best Girl After All." True
he only suffered in a dream, but the
warning was there just the same.
Good comedy was seen when "Bertie's Reformation" appeared.
Madame Griselda
Of Madame Griselda, who is to appear at the Alexandra Club on Friday, September 8, the musical critic
of the Los Angeles Times had the
following to say after a recent concert held in that city:
"Mde. Griselda has a voice of wide
range, rich and powerful, and suited
for brilliant work. She proved to bc
one of the best woman singers heard
in this city for some time. Especially fine was the rendition of her Schubert and Brahms selections, although
every number was sung with the understanding of the finished singer."
Mr. Geo. Dyke of Vancouver, writing in the News-Advertiser before
Mde. Griselda's recital in the Terminal City, says: "To music-lovers
throughout the city this recital will
prove an immense treat. Madame
Griselda has a rapturous voice of extraordinary register, of uncommon
quality and beautiful mellowness. Her
phrasing is absolutely faultless, and
to hear her sing Brahms is a never-
to-be-forgotten lesson. Her enunciation is perfect. She is as much
at home in German, French and Italian as she is in English, and all the
lights and shades of expression emanate from the truest and purest devotional feelings possible. She sings
with a rare comprehensive grasp of
her themes, combining the highest
estimates of tone, meaning and poetic
significance."
In all the cities where Mde. Griselda has given recitals, and their
name is Legion, the same enthusiastic comments have been given and it
is to be hoped that the music-lovers
of Victoria will take advantage of the
exceptional opportunity of hearing
this gifted artiste on her appearance
at the Club on the date named.
SUMMIT CREEK
In a full-page advertisement this
week Messrs. Hall & Floyer call the
attention of the public to the exceptional advantages offered by investment in Summit Creek. There are a
few additional points which may be
specially emphasized. First and foremost, the name of Mr. Davis, the
mine manager, known throughout the
Province as "Cariboo" Davis, owing
to the fact that he has had twenty
years' experience in that district, is
ill itself a guarantee that the proposition is a sound one. Forty
thousand preferred stock are now being issued at par, and it is to be
noted that the preferred stock-holders
receive all their money back before
any others interested obtain a cent.
The capital is small and the mine has
been thoroughly well prospected and
proven, the whole of this property
and the ground above and below having been subjected to a minute examination. A careful perusal of the
advertisement will well repay the
reader who is so anxious to lay his
hands on some sound profitable investment.

COLONIAL
GOVERNORS
Written Specially for the  Week
by Gilbert Malcolm  Sproat
The first British Colonial Governor
west of the Rocky Mountains, or,
strictly, perhaps, it might be said,
west of the "Great Lakes," was
Richard Blanshard, a good-looking
amiable, neuralgic Englishman, of the
barrister profession, who loved to
tickle the trout. He arrived at Victoria in March, 1850, in H.M.S.
Driver, and left in September, 1851,
in H. M. S. Daphne, after a doleful
experience, not here to be described,
helpless between thc Fur-Company
''Devil" and the Home Government
"Deep Sea." His name is mis-spelled
in "Blanchard Street," but that is
nothing, so is the better known name
of "Meares," in "Mears" Street. I
saw Blanshard in London in 1857
when I had no notion of coming here.
This appointment ancl the general action of the Home Government,
showed, in my opinion, that the Colonial Office had learned nothing since
the surrender of Cornwallis, but that
comes not, at present, into my purpose, which is, merely, in a careless-
ordered way, to give the reader some
general idea of personalities, beginning with Blanshard's successor,
James Douglas, who occupied the
burlesque positions of manager of a
"Company-lessee" of the Island, and,
at the same time the agent of the
"lessor" of the Island—duty and interest, of course, clashing at every
step, up to 1858, when the Colonial
Office, having, I suppose, consulted
some child, oped its weary eyes,
mumbling that Douglas had better
decide which master he would serve.
This fact, and subsequent study,
opened my eyes to the truth that
there never has been any such thing
as a true English, or British, "Colonial Policy." The office of Secretary of State for the Colonies, so
familiar, now, to us, is, in its modern,
exclusive administrative character,
practically, a product of the Victorian era. Previously, the seals of
the Colonial ancl War Departments
wcre entrusted as a rule to some
Secretary of State, whose supervision, in the Colonial case, was assisted by the Lords of the Committee
of Council for trade ancl "foreign"
Plantations. Your readers may see,
in the Reports of the Canadian Historical Archives, that the functions
of the latter body were very comprehensive, ranging from the review
of Colonial legislative enactments,
with recommendations for allowance
or disallowance, clown to regulations
for thc culture of hemp and the statutory valuations of barrel staves and
headings.
Probably, the administrative connection between the above two Departments, had a historical basis in
the facts that, until lately, the colonies were regarded, simply as ministering to thc Home Trade, ancl that
many of our wars in time past, were
wars for Trade. Outside of that, so
far as I can discover, there was, as
said above, no conception of Colonial
Policy. The people, not thc Home
Government, have made our principal colonies, and what the future may
disclose is at present hidden. But
this digression takes me away from
describing personalities. It may
help, however, thc student's better
appreciation of the strong riddance
movement actuative in the Home
Land during the last century, ancl of
the general truth, that, in human affairs, mere retrospect is little instructive unless it includes careful observation of development.

Victoria, B.C., Aug. 23, 1911.
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—After reading an account
of the raiding of a so-called "Black-
Jack" Club which appeared in the
Victoria Daily Times of the 21st inst.,
I was much surprised at the narrow-
minded and sarcastic remarks published by the reporter of our leading
evening journal.
The old saying that men are
known by their deeds, can well be
applied in this case, for evidently this
poor specimen of the literary world
is one of the class, who sit all night
in a dining-room over a two-bit meal,
drink all the ice-water, grumble at
everything as a matter of course and
then make use of the telephone as a
hurried means of exit.
The people of this city are well
aware of the fact, that in order to
have an account or copy of their club
business or sporting events put forward with a goocl write-up it is customary to slip the press-man a little
change or a cigar, otherwise your
article will be continued in disjointed
sections, to be found entangled with
various real estate deals and patent
medicines. Needless to say the
tradesman and retail stores of Victoria are only too pleased to have
the so-called "Henrys" and "Frances's" alias "waiters" at the hotels,
visit their stores and spend their hard
earned "handouts" as the press agent
calls them, for it is generally a cash
payment and not C. O. D. or tick
transaction. If the Times police
court reporter could only turn his wit
to a better advantage than joking on
law-breaking, ancl could perform his
duties, as these gentlemen who are
every bit as much entitled to that
term as he, the probability is he might
receive larger remuneration for his
service or more "handouts." Furthermore it is pleasing to see the police force of Victoria perform their
duty with such ability and tact, and
we trust they will always keep up
their splendid record as the smartest
police force in Canada.
However, it should be remembered
that black-jack ancl other games contrary to the laws are played every
day at the various select clubs of the
city, including those in the Chinese
quarter ancl there is plenty of scope
of adding to the city's treasure chest
without fining a few hard-working
young men the extortionate fine of
$30, which is out of proportion to the
crime committed.
Thanking you in anticipation of
these few lines being published in
your valuable paper ancl that I have
not trespassed upon the space of your
popular journal.
T remain, yours truly,
FAIRPLAY.
Contest Closes Tonight at 10 p.
Count Made and Prizes Awarded, Candidates
aiid Friends invited to be present at
1208 Government St.
Before the dawn of another day the Ladies' Popular Voting Con
test of "The Week" will have passed into history.   The l.nal scenl
of the play which has been enacted by scores of contestants and theil
friends for the past ten weeks will occur in the business office of "Th|
Week at ten o'clock tonight.
At ten o'clock sharp the polls will close and no agency known tl
man can secure the counting of any subscription received after th/
time. In this instance ten o'clock means ten o'clock and not a fe^
minutes before or after.
The count will be made in plain view of all present and the resu|
will be announced as soon thereafter as possible.
Tonight each and every one of the candidates should look the pajj
of a winner though it is the hardest task they ever attempted,
game, and if you lose, be cheerful. If you can't be cheerful, be
cheerful as you can. Remember, it has been a hard fight—not
long in actual time, but ages to those of a nervous temperamen
By putting up the best fight possible and running close to tlj
winners you receive the congratulations of your friends and those wh
supported your rivals.
Tonight will tell the tale. Twelve ladies will be rewarded fd
their time and effort put forth during the past ten weeks. Who wil
be the winner of the Grand Prize? It is a hard question to answel
It may be you—who knows. Put in your best work right up to tlf
last. Remember one subscription may be the winning point and tq
cause of another's loss.
The best of feeling prevails between the different contestants, |
number having met for the first time at the office of "The Weelj
during the past few weeks. "Where do you get all your votes?"
don't know of any place to look for one more subscription." "Ever!
one I ask has already given their subscription to some other candidal
"I have just got to win one of the big prizes." "How are you gettiil
on?" These and other jollying and bantering remarks are passf
between the different candidates.
A few points candidates should remember:
The Contest closes at io p.m. sharp. Out of town candidates ai|
subscribers must have their subscriptions in by that time.
Candidates are requested to have their subscription blanks propetj
filled out before arriving at the office.
Subscriptions and the proper amount to cover same must be pi
into envelopes and envelopes deposited in the ballot box at "Tf
Week" Office before io p.m. tonight.
Candidates may have all their subscriptions in one envelope or |
many different ones as they wish.
If more money than the subscriptions call for is in the envelod
the amount over will be returned to the Contestant.   If more s«f
scriptions than the amount of money calls for are in the envelopes,
extra subscriptions will be returned to the contestant and no vo^
allowed for same.
No personal cheques will be accepted to-day. Post-office a|
Express Money Orders will be accepted the same as cash.
Candidates will assist greatly in the counting of the votes tonid
by having all subscriptions of the same kind together, the larger <_\
on top.
In case of a tie between two or more candidates in the sa]
district for a prize, the value of the prize will be equally divided,
case of a tie for Grand Prize between two or more district leade
the aggregate value of the prize will be divided.

The Contest in District Seven is very close, Miss Kent being _
than the equivalent to two* five yearly subscriptions behind Miss Smil
the leader.   Miss Kent deserves great credit for the remarkable g|
in votes she has made since the last publication. I
Miss Ruth Bell of District Twelve is less than the equivalent!
twelve five-year subscriptions behind the leader.
Miss Sadie Craig of District Ten could also overcome the leal
with little effort, being less than 35,000 votes behind for the Gr_T
Prize.

I;ar  Sir:
lit may be of interest to you to

iThis certainly brings down tne
1st of operating the patrol wagon
I a very small item. We possibly
Ight have operated it on a some*
liat less consumption of gasoline,
It we were obliged to break in
le new man during the month,
pich tends to increase the gaso-

Motor Truck Valuable in
Recent Forest Fires
Reprinted from the Evening Index, San Barnardino, California
Carrying loads averaging from 2500
to 4000 pounds each trip, over the
most unpassable country, up steep
grades and through burning brush for
13 days, and without stopping at any
time sufficiently for the engine to
cool off, was the almost unbelievable
record of the White truck during tbe
recent mountain fire.
The exact number of trips the car
made to the mountains is not exactly
known, but it is figured that it made
at least three round trips a day into
the interior regions, whicii would
figure some 150 miles, together with
lesser trips to the foothills, the Arrowhead, in search of men and provisions, which would bring the average up to possibly 200 miles daily.
With this average it would total 2600
miles under the most severe tests to
which a machine can be put; a test
which other machines less heavily
loaded by far feared to tackle.
Experienced automobile men, driving the truck, day after day, marveled. T. C. Holt, who was the driver
during the greater portion of the
time, admitted that it "had his goat."
Through this remarkable strain of
weight, steep hills and rocky country,
there was never a breakdown, and at
no time did any repair have to be
made.;
The truck was rung in as supply
wagon from the time the great flames
commenced raging in the mountains,
and became an indespensible necessity. Dozens of loads, far beyond
the capacity of the car, went into
Seeley Flats, City creek, Fredalba,
Skyland and rough places where most
cars are unable to navigate even under first class conditions. Time after
time it delved its nose into burning
brush;   plunged down hill, where the
faltering of a brake or of a piece of
machinery meant the lives of men, or
the destruction of hundreds of dollars worth of provisions.
At one time it carried 5000 pounds
of supplies and when the truck left
the city, it was said on all sides that
it could never reach its destination
with the load. It carried from the
mountain 32 men averaging in weight
160 pounds, and on several occasions
had 4000 pounds of provisions. Never
did it carry less than 2500 pounds.
In auto circles, the showing has
proved startling, and almost unbelievable. Superintendent Starke, who
was in charge of the commissary de*
partment during the fire, and who
was on the truck every trip it made,
stated that he was unable to account
for the great strength displayed and
that it had exceeded any expectation
of his.
Over the hills into Seeley flats is
a trip which autoists carrying light
loads declined to take for fear that
their machines could not stand it, yet
the White truck made it day after
day.
On but very few occasions was the
engine given time to barely stop its
burr, for the necessity of constant
activity made it necessary for constant work.
Supervisor Charlton and Assistant
Superintendent Long have declared
that the machine proved of indispensable value to the government service.
To the waiting hundreds of workers
it meant fresh supplies and fresh
men, and delay, in many instances,
spelt conditions of suffering among
the men.
Within the past few days the same
variety of car carried goo orphans
from Los Angeles to'beach resorts.

so that the Speedwell had to take

Speedwell, drove the car through and
have a new record from Dayton to
Columbus to their credit, making the
trip of sixty-five miles with five passengers in one hour and forty-seven
minutes.
Mr. Feldhausen, local manager for
"Speedwell" cars, said today that a
shipment of "Speedwell" 2-ton, 4-ton
and 6-ton trucks will arrive in Victoria very shortly. "Speedwell" trucks
solve the delivery problem by increasing the economy of your delivery and
service. They are well designed and
adaptable to any business. There is
no other car made "just as good," for
the Speedwell is known all over for
good service. A big surprise is
awaiting you when you witness the

After a visit of thirty days at the
Everitt factory in Orillia, Mr. Geo.
A. Tudhope, of the Tudhope-Cum-
mins-Hanover Motor Co., returned
to the city last week and brings with
him rosy reports of the Everitt factory and the new 6-cylinder so-
horse power car which this enterprising Canadian factory is putting
out for next year, one that, from our
interview with Mr. Tudhope, will be
sold within the reach of all buyers
of sensible and moderate-priced machines. We understand this car has
a 127-inch wheel base and carries
either 5 or 7-passenger equipment.
The liberal guarantee of two years
is furnished with the six as also it
is with the four. The above firm
are handling the "Everitt" line for
the province and with their policy we
cannot see but success for them for
the forthcoming year. Somewhat
different is their policy towards
prospective purchasers. Instead of
talking of their merits and their
guarantee, they refer you to their
customers to whom they have sold
and let them tell you of the manner
of which the guarantee is carried
out, also of the merits of the sturdy
little 4-cylinder "Everitt" which was
the standard model of last year and
which this year will play a leading
part in the sale of medium priced
cars in B. C. Mr. Hanover, the
local manager, upon being asked if
the "Everitt" was a good car, promptly replied: "Don't ask me, ask Mr.
H. S. Griffiths, the architect, or Capt.
Clive Phillipps-Woolley, of Duncan.
You would believe them but you
know I would tell you it was the best
car in the country and you would allow for exaggeration on my part
where on the other hand if these gentlemen tell you it's the finest little
car in the land you could not help but
believe it. See, there is where I get
you going."
We have not as yet accepted Mr.
Hanover's advice in asking these gentlemen, but no doubt will in the near
future. The Tudhopc-Cummins-Han-
over Motor Co. have their garage at
931 View street, and we wish to assure you that their genial little manager will welcome you and give you
any information in his power whether
you are going to buy or not.

option of making final payment at any time after acceptance of title,
and only interest accrued to date on such payment is to be payable as
well as the balance of principal. All mining stores and supplies on
hand at date of transfer of property are to be paid for by purchaser
upon a valuation.
The property included in the transaction consists of the Le Roi
mine and mineral claims adjacent thereto owned by the Le Roi Company, also the machinery, plant, ore dumps, water rights and real estate,
comprising the remaining Canadian assets of the company. Cash on
hand and accounts receivable as at May 31, 1911, remain the property
of the Le Roi Company, as do, too, the smelter at Northport, Washington, and assets connected therewith until sold to some other
purchaser.
The Consolidated Company is now in possession of the property
at Rossland.
The Le Roi group adjoins the Consolidated Company's Centre
Star group, and underground connection between the two mines
already exists. There is known to be a large tonnage of low grade ore
in the Le Roi, but explorations with the diamond drill during the last
year or two did not result in the finding of new sheets of ore of sufficiently high grade to leave a margin of profit after payment of all management as well as mining ancl smelting expenses. As management
charges will now be distributed over several properties instead of only
one, it is to be expected that costs will be low enough to leave the Consolidated Company a margin of profit that was not practicable while the
Le Roi was worked as a separate concern.
BRITISH CAPITAL FOR THE WEST
Two men prominent in British Columbia's financial affairs
returned lately after extended visits in Europe. Both brought back
news of capital coming to western Canada. Mr. John Hendry, ex-
president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, and interested
in many Pacific Coast enterprises, says that British capital is looking
this way, but the solidity of the opportunities presented must be
satisfactorily established to the investors. This same idea is expressed
by Mr. Alvo von Alvensleben, who also returned last week. He gives
the advice that those who wish to get money in the London market
should not go there without having their propositions well prepared.
When the British capitalist talks business he talks of things as they
are not as they may be.
Mr. von Alvensleben reports the markets of Berlin and Paris
keen to get information of Canadian projects, and especially British
Columbia. He thinks considerable money will come from Paris
during the next few years for investment here, but as there are more
small investors in France it is harder to get their confidence. Mr.
von Alvensleben sold stock of the Vancouver Timber & Trading Company, amounting to about three and a half million dollars, and raised
half a million dollars for investment in Vancouver first mortgages and
agreements of sale.     	
IN REFUTATION OF EASTERN FAIRY-TALES
Just a few figures to help refute the story of Vancouver's "busted
boom," so widely exploited by some Ontario papers. In July, during
the building trades strike, and after it had existed a month, the bank
clearings were $42,239,102, compared with $22,973,715 in the same
month last year. Building permits were nearly double, namely,
$1,108,378 last month and $619,530 in July last year. The strike could
not help but have effect, but today Vancouver is more prosperous than
ever. The quieting of real estate activity was not an unmixed evil,
but that does not mean a decrease in values. So great is the demand
for land and houses that at Kerrisdale, four miles from the waterfront,
houses rent for $25 and $30 a month. High rents indicate strong conditions, but they need to come lower than that to give workers a
chance. Shipping returns for three years show a doubling, 575,496
tons in 1909 and 1,996,963 in 1911.
Unusual liquidation in Maricopa oil stock has been a feature of
the stock exchanges this week, and nearly 200,000 shares have changed
hands at falling prices. Local interest is centred in Portland Canal,
for shipments are ready and the large number concerned are awaiting
returns, which will show the value of the camp.
NATIONAL  FINANCE  COMPANY
A meeting of the directors of the National Finance Company,
Limited, A'ancouver, B.C., at which the half-yearly report was read,
has been held. The directors expressed themselves as being pleased
with the manner in which the company has been handled, during the
first six months of this year, the net profit being over $60,000. The
assets now stand at $2,029,682, as against $1,779,682 on December 31st,
1910. The company has been making rapid progress and great
advances have been made in the trust department, including the securing of many new estates, handling of properties, trusteeships and guarantees.
The company has just moved into its office at the corner of Pender
and Hamilton Streets. These offices are well equipped in every detail.
The company's facilities in the investment department are of the best.
Its collection and trust departments have lately been inaugurated and
already a large volume of business has been received. So far the
results from the brokerage department have been satisfactory. The
dividend earnings of the company have been encouraging.
THE GOVERNOR OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND
Like most of the governors of the Bank of England, the new
governor, Mr. A. C. Cole, is more of a merchant than banker. He was
educated for the bar, to which he was called in 1880, but in the same
year entered his father's firm of W. H. Cole & Co. He has been
prominent in insurance, and in 1886 was appointed to a seat on the
court of the London Assurance Corporation. Although not a banker,
in the strict sense of the term, Mr. Cole has a thorough and practical
knowledge of banking and finance, and has had a very wide business
experience. He becomes Governor of the Bank of England at the
comparatively early age of fifty-six years.

Grand Trunk Pacific
Investors
The construction of the new transcontinental railway—the Grand Trunk
Pacific—is to-day opening up new towns that in the very near future will be
large and important cities. Just aB the advent of the pioneer transcontinental
line—The Canadian Pacific—opened and built up divisional points such as
Brandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc., so will the new line of the Grand
Trunk make large divisional points of the towns we now oner for sale.
We have secured the agency from the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC RAILWAY CO. for the towns mentioned below and the shrewd investors who can
recognize the many advantages for investment in these towns at the prices of
today, will share in the large profits that will accrue as a result of their rapid
development. No other investment is so safe and profitable, and if you want
to get your portion of the wealth Western Canada's development is creating,
take advantage of this opportunity now before it is too late.
Prices of lots in all of these divisional points are $75, $100, $150, $200, $250
and $300 on easy monthly payments, no interest and no taxes till 1912, with a
5 per cent, discount for cash.
MELVILLE—The first Saskatchewan divisional point on the G. T. P. and
the largest new town on the line between Winnipeg and Edmonton. Located
in a rich agricultural district, an important railroad and distributing centre.
Melville bids fair to become one of the important cities of Western Canada.
WATROUS—The mecca of the health seeker, situate near the shores of
the famous Little Manitou Lake, and in the centre of one of the finest farming
sections of Saskatchewan. v
BIGGAR—The opportunity of opportunities, located in the heart of a
wonderfully rich and fertile agricultural district, and with railway facilities that
guarantee a future, being not only one of the most important Grand Trunk

ABRIDGED PROSPECTUS
The Company has been formed under the laws of the Province of British Columbia with the liability of its members limited to the payment of the nominal
amount of the shares for the purpose of acquiring from Messrs. Arthur Maurice Davis, David W. Hanbury and William Howard Kirkbride certain placer mining
ground situate on Summit Creek, a tributary of the Antler Creek in the Cariboo Mining Division of British Columbia, and comprising about two hundred and
forty (240) acres held under four several leases issued under the provisions of the Placer Mining Act of the aforesaid Province and
generally for the acquisition of Mining Properties within British Columbia and the carrying on of a general mining business.
 The ground above the Company's property has been worked by hand, while prospecting has paid from $40.00 to $50.00 per day
per man.   The ground below the Company's claims has also paid well, over $400 being taken out in three weeks' time by individual miners.
A bore hole sunk in the upper end of the Company's claims last year showed the depth of ground to be between 70 and 80 feet to bedrock with a bottom
of from 20 to 30 feet with values running from $1.25 to $2.25 per cubic yard. This proves that there exists a high-grade auriferous channel beneath the
Company's claims, and it is confidently expected that these values will continue throughout the whole length of its property.
Many rich and profitable mines are being operated around the Company's claims. The West Canadian Deeps Leeds Co., Ltd., operates on the Little Valley
Creek, which creek and Summit Creek rise at the same source, Summit Creek flowing north and Little Valley Creek flowing south. The Company above named
is now continuing boring and prospecting operations over the divide and on Summit Creek about one-half mile above this Company's claims.
The district has been handicapped heretofore by want of transportation facilities. During the summer season of 1910 the Government has built a good
wagon road from Barkerville, which passes the Company's claims. The Grand Trunk Railroad will be completed in two years and will pass within 30 miles of
the property, and it is understood that a branch line is contemplated from Fort George to Barkerville, which would pass within four miles of the Company's
claims.
Extracts from the report of Mr. Arthur Maurice Davis, Mine Manager: "In submitting the following report and description of the Summit Creek
Hydraulic Mine to you, I wish to state that it is made from my own personal examination and from actual tests of working and prospecting on the ground. I
have washed and tested, in all, about 250 cubic yards.
"The location of the mine is on Summit Creek in the Cariboo Mining District, and is situated about three miles below or down stream from one of the
best mines in British Columbia (hydraulic), 'The Thistle.' The returns from the work done give a value of 20c per cubic yard; other prospects showed much
higher values, the lowest estimates being 17c per cubic yard, and it is this figure that is taken as a basis for the estimate of the probable production of the mine
when it has been opened up and properly developed; with a small head of water (about 20 inches) sluicing or washing operations return from $1.00 to $1.65
per day to the man; caught and saved in boxes and cleaning bed-rock paid from $5.00 to $7.00 per day.
"The indications are that these values will hold good and be continuous throughout the whole length of the mine. The life of the mine is estimated to
be between 15 and 20 years.
"There is a good supply of water, as there is not only the water that is used by the before-mentioned mine, which can all be used again, there are also
two other large creeks, each carrying a considerable amount of water, and they can all be brought along the same ditch. In all about 800 miner's inches can be
had in the driest time of the season, which would probably be the last two weeks in July ancl the first two weeks in August; during the remainder of the
season from 2,000 to 3,000 miner's inches may be had.
"This water can be put on the mines with a total length of ditch not exceeding 2l/2 miles. There is very little fluming as it is all good ditching ground,
with the exception of some 500 or 600 feet of bedrock or loose rocky ground, which might have to be flumed. This ditch would give a pressure head at the mine
of 200 feet. * * * Estimated cost of constructing 2]/> miles ditch, placing necessary machinery, building camps, etc., and putting mines on a working basis
is $20,000.00, the balance of this issue being required for working capital.
Estimated clean-up for one season:
1500 yards per clay for 200 clays, 300,000 cubic yards; 300,000 yards at 17c per yard      $51,000.00
Working expenses, say 250 days, at $54.00       13,500.00
Total net profit for season     $37,500.00
The purchase price for the sale of the above mentioned properties has been fixed by the vendors at fifty-five thousand dollars ($55,000,00). Five
thousand dollars only is payable in cash, ancl the balance is to be satisfied by the allotment of fifty thousand Ordinary Shares, credited as fully paid up. Twenty-
four thousand nine hundred and ninety-five (24,995) Ordinary Shares remain in the Treasury for issue when required.
Forms of application and copies of the Company's Prospectus, whicii applicants are invited to carefully peruse, can be obtained at the Registered Office
of the Company, and from Messrs. Hall & Floyer, 11 McCallum Block, or any other member of the Victoria Stock Exchange.
Shares sold subject to the terms of the Company's Prospectus only, from whicii the above advertisement only gives extracts.

NORTHERN CROWN BANK
A statement of the result of the business of the Northern Crown
Bank for the half year ended June 30th, 1911, shows a balance at credit
of profit and loss account at the beginning of the half year of $170,649.
The net profits for the period after deducting the usual expenses of
management, tax payments, etc., total $116,909. This gave a sum of
$287,559 for distribution. Dividends at the rate of 5 per cent, per
annum accounted for $55,185, thus leaving a balance to be carried
forward to the credit of profit and loss account of $232,373.
The profits are equal to about 10.6 per cent, upon the capital and
are slightly less than those of the corresponding period /ast year. The
latter half of the current year is likely to be the better one from the
standpoint of earning power. It is not at all unlikely, therefore, that
the year's results will show an increase over the figures of the previous
twelve months.
The liquid assets of the bank have increased in the course of
twelve months from $2,171,352 at the end of June, 1910, to $3,426,860,
June 30, 1911. The general asset increase has been from $15,099,345
to $17,150,451. At the end of June the bank circulation touched at
$1,816,112, as compared with $1,657,208 a year ago. Deposits not
bearing interest increased from $3,021,038 to $3,741,594, and deposits
bearing interest increased from $7,428,459 to $8,920,259. The
Northern Crown Bank is making rapid strides especially in Western
Canada. Much credit is due to the energetic policy pursued by Mr. R.
Campbell, the general manager of the bank.
NEW   DIVIDEND   PAYERS
Two Slocan mines will enter the dividend list this month. The
one is the Standard mine of Silverton, bought by Patsy Clark, of
Spokane, about six months ago, for $2,500,000 and the other the
Rambler Cariboo, of Three Forks, also controlled in Spokane. When
the concentrator plant of the former is completed this month the mine
will be producing 200 tons of ore daily, half of which will be shipped
direct to the smelters and the other treated first at the mill. The total
net profit on the monthly operations is estimated at $200,000. The ore
is a silver-lead and the body of large size. The Rambler Cariboo are
also busy erecting a concentrator plant of 100 tons daily capacity and
when the 1,400 ft. level reaches the ore this mine should also yield a
net profit of $200,000 per month as its values are even higher than the
Standard's, running from 100 to 150 ozs. in silver ancl from 50 to 60
per cent. lead.
The Granby Co. are elated over the prospects of their new purchase at Hidden Creek near Portland Canal. They are now busy
developing ore which is one of their strongest characteristics, ancl are
preparing to erect a smelter at Goose Bay. Their manager, Mr. W.
Y. Williams, was recently on a trip through the Coast camps and has
expressed himself as very favourably impressed with the prospects for
customs tonnage for the smelters.
ELECTRIC   RAILWAY   EXTENSIONS
The British Columbia Electric Railway directors have issued a
circular announcing that the increase in the trade and population of the
cities necessitates further development of the railway, light and power
systems, this expansion being due, it is explained, to the recognition
of the natural resources of British Columbia and the continued influx
of settlers throughout the Province—conditions which the directors
throughout the Province—conditions which the directors are of opinion
are likely to be permanent. They have therefore decided to issue
£600,000 new capital, £200,000 being in five per cent, cumulative Perpetual Preference shares of £1 each, at one shilling premium, £200,000
in preferred ordinary shares of £ each, at two shillings premium, and
£200,000 deferred ordinary shares of £1 each at 4 shillings premium.
GROWING REVENUE
The financial statement of the Dominion for the first four months
of the fiscal year shows a steadily growing revenue with expenditures
remaining practically stationary. Income for the four months was
$40,309,171, an increase of $4,753,732, as compared with last year.
For July the increase was $1,748,939. Expenditure on consolidated
fund account for the four months was $23,002,686, an increase of
$958,609 compared with last year. Expenditure on capital account
was $4,644,799, a decrease of $1,152,538. With over fifty millions
of supply voted by Parliament before dissolution and an expenditure
so far of about twenty-eight millions the Government has still about
twenty-five millions available to carry on the administration until the
new Parliament meets in October.
The public debt on the 31st of July was $327,181,427, a decrease
of a million and a half as compared with the same date last year.

INDUSTRIAL INTERESTS  AND  DEADMAN'S  ISLAND
Industrial interests have been successful in their fight for Dead-
man's Island, lying in Coal Harbor, close to Stanley Park. Twelve
years ago, Mr. Theodore Ludgate secured a lease of this island, which
has a fine commercial situation, but his building a sawmill there was
opposed. Since then, litigation has followed, and recently the decision
of the privy council was handed down that Vancouver city has no
power to stop him in his possession. Since the clay he got his lease
there has been immense development in Vancouver, and now the
island is too valuable for a site for a sawmill. It is stated now that
two and a half million dollars will be expended in making wharfs
and warehouses, etc.	
JULY CUSTOMS RETURNS
The customs returns for July show receipts of $6,697,485, as compared with $5,724,714 in July of last year, or an increase of
$972,770.93. The first four months of the fiscal year show an increase
in customs collections of $3,305,942 as compared with the same period
last year, the total collections being $25,917,749. The total collections
for the month in Ottawa were $87,336.91, which is a large increase
over the amount for the same period last year.

Promotion in the Navy
A circular letter issued to the fleet
by the Admiralty states that there
are so many men in the various ranks
rated "very good" that it becomes
increasingly difficult to select men for
promotion. In future, therefore, men
who arc lit for early promotion, and
who stand above their fellows both
in efficiency and in natural capacity,
are to be rated "exceptional."
Efficient men, fit for promotion but
with no special claims to early advancement, are to bc rated "superior,"
and those who, while efficient, are not
fit for present advancement, are to
be described "satisfactory." Fairly
efficient and inefficient men will be
rated as "moderate" and "inferior"
respectively.

IE LIBERALS AND THE
TARIFF
[Editor of The Week.
Victoria, B. C.
\—Mr. Joseph Martin in his ad-
as reported in the London
Ies" August 7th, 1908, on the sub-
I'Political Morality, as illustrated
Je making and operation of the
and  the  establishment  of  fa-
1   interests   within   the   State,
-"The Liberals, who until their
|i to power in 1896, steadily kept
fore-front as the leading plank
eir policy, the abolition of the
Iftive tariff and the return to a
revenue tariff such as was in
Ince prior to 1878, had now been
jwer for twelve years.    If their
legislation   were   examined   it
be found that there had been
fort whatever to eliminate Pro-
that in many instances the
lhad been largely increased, and
|he . average tariff today was
pally the same as it was when
look office in 1896. More than
■he policy of direct subsidies to
11  manufacturers  had  been  ex-
under the Liberal Govern-
Ivery much indeed. Why had
liberal   Government  abandoned
resolutions with regard to this
bn of the Tariff? The Liberal
jwere unable to withstand the
lition to use the immense power
[had been placed in their hands
electorate of Canada to com-
Ijeir previous antagonists—the
jns of the "Red Parlour"—to
lir exchequer. NEVER in ALL
ttory of Canada had there been
|ch corruption in public life as
'' LAST TWELVE YEARS."
was the indictment by one of
Ir's ardent followers and we
■igive Mr. Martin credit for
J«g the responsibility involved
I an utterance. The many cor-
jfcts reported from time to time
Martin's indictment are enough
j to the blush any self-respect
ing Canadian. What with Oliver refusing to clear himself of the charge
of receiving nearly $70,000 in bribes;
Lanctot using the materials and
workmen of the Dominion Parliament to paint his house, and Pugsley's waste (we call it "waste" for
want of another term) of public
funds, for we are told that he has
been paying 80 to 90 cents per-yard
for dredging that used to be done for
10 cents, we have a pretty list. Even
Laurier has proved himself to be one
of the most unreliable Prime Ministers Canada has ever had. As Mr.
Martin says, Free Trade was
Laurier's slogan in 1895, a promise
which, when given, he never attempted to redeem. Indeed Laurier said:
"Suppose we have to deal with and
to reform the Tariff, which we certainly shall have to deal with, we
might appoint a Royal Commission,
go about the country interviewing
manufacturers in secret, interviewing
farmers in public, lecturing farmers,
brow-beating them and showing them
their stupidity, because they do not
acknowledge the beauties of the national policy. This is the way in
which men can maintain their reputation for capability and small 'cute-
ness'."
Laurier made the above remarks to
a Toronto audience in 1895 and he
said: "When in power I think I
know a way in which I can maintain
my reputation—that is, when a question comes before me that is difficult to solve, to avoid it, to do nothing and to look wise." He has proved
himself to be one of :the most adroit
political side-steppers that ever held
the reins of power. Whilst he protests his loyalty to the Empire, he
comes almost into the open preaching and practising treason.
May I suggest, sir, that if Laurier
and his small following of disloyalists are not satisfied with the protection of the Union Jack, they
should act like men and get out of
the country and take refuge under
the folds of the Stars and Stripes
they love so much?   Laurier for years
past has allowed his own paper "Le
Canada," to represent to his compatriots that the Imperial Government was imposing unjust taxes on
them although he knows that such
representations are absolutely false.
It is time, sir, that Canadian patriots
asked who and what is Laurier. He
says he is not an Imperialist; he is
not a Separationist; he is not a Freetrader; he is not a Protectionist. He
speaks of Canada as being his country, as though no one else had any
right to breathing space upon its surface. Mr. Stead's "Julia" must have
paid him a visit and persuaded him
to say "I am that I am." He has
certainly kept his henchmen guessing
to find out what he and his policies
are. Surely he has reached his allotted span, for he is making it a
point to tell his followers that he is
nearly seventy and his gray hairs proclaim that his race is nearly run. Anyone who pleads years and gray hairs
as a reason why he should be returned to power again surely gives
clear indication of being mentally unfitted to use the power he wants in
the best interests of the people, and
rather than trust Laurier again it
would pay the country to retire him
on an allowance of $10,000 a year for
the rest of his  natural life.

Singing in the Army
Efforts are once more being made
at Aldershot to encourage singing
among the troops, a custom almost
universally practised in foreign
armies as tending to keep up a cheerful tone on the march and in camp.
The Naval and Military Musical
Union has now intimated to the Aldershot authorities an offer of the
Smith-Dorrien Soldiers' Home to
present a cup for an annual singing
competition by units.

FASHIONS  FOR THE FAIR
The ladies of Victoria have long-
been noted for the taste which they
display in matters of dress, and it is
for their benefit'that Mr. Rutley has
opened the doors of a new Ladies'
Tailoring establishment, situate at
Rooms 408-9, Sayward Block, Douglas street. Mr. Rutley is a new-comer
from the Old Country where he has
successfully conducted a similar business for many years. He is a firm
believer in the future of Victoria and
is confident that his venture will
prove satisfactory.

that is very practical.
* *   *
Real laces have never been more
in demand than just now. Women
are discovering that they are being
asked exorbitant prices for the Swiss
made imitations, and in consequence
are buying the genuine article and
procuring a possession worth while.
In some of the prominent shops are
housed laces of great beauty and
value—antique Venise, Flemish, Irish
crochet, Brussels, Honiton, point de
gaze—which have been held as heirlooms in old families for many generations, their history known and
kept like a pedigree. Some of these
are in flounces or bandings, others in
fischu style, and still others are made
to fit the shoulders artistically in the
antique shape of a cardinal's cape.
* *   *
A careful study of the latest fashions that appear at this time of year
is well worth while, for among the
models now exhibited there are many
that will be selected for the coming
autumn and winter. To be sure, it
takes a trained eye to discern always
the possibilities that lie dormant in
the linen or silk gown, in the cloth
or velvet one; but the lines are there
and the most striking styles are always attempted well in advance to
give an opportunity to judge as to
whether they are smart and attractive.
* *   *
Almost without exception this season the gown requires careful attention as to fit and hang of the skirt.
The slight amount of fulness at the
waist and the straight lines are difficult to combine, and the fulness must
be placed not too far forward or the
wearer will look both stout and un
graceful. Just enough fulness at the
sides to make the skirt hang straight,
without any break or curve in at the
sides, is required, for there must
never be enough for the skirt to hang
forward in front or out at the sides,
for that utterly destroys the lines that
are now demanded.
The woman who is especially interested in models for house gowns
will be glad to hear of the new tunics,
to be worn over slips, which have
been brought out by the Bon Marche
in Paris.
The beauty ancl grace of the tunic
have been fully appreciated and exploited by designers of the Rue de la
Paix, but it has remained for this
large department shop to discover its
practical side and present it as a chic
little garment in itself. And it certainly fills most uniquely the need
for a smart little summer evening
frock for the woman of limited income, who must have something durable, yet light in texture, a colour
that will not show soil, and a material that does not call for constant
pressing, as she has no maid to attend to the small caretakings, and the
laundress is busy enough without
such extra work. Now note the possibilities of this tunic, which is adapted from the first—and expensive—
treatment of the idea, as brought out
by such houses as Worth and Paquin. These models were developed
in simple lines from straight, uu-
drap'ed lengths of material, hilt'Witfe
so embellished with gorgeous *ai\d^intricate embroideries that none but the
purse of .depth cxml.d supply their purchase price.   These tunic frocks were
also carried out in delicate materials,
Which were most ravishing in effect,
yet, too elaborate and 'perishable, to
be either possible or suitable -for the
vvardrobe of small scope. ;But,.when
modified, how beautifully, the, fashion
lends itself to these requirements!
Coloured muslins and dimities and
dotted muslins are included this season in the fashionable materials.
They are made up with lace, and almost any kind of lace is used. Filet,
Valenciennes and the fine net laces
are to be seen on the smartest of the
gowns, while finest baby Irish continues to be thought more than ever
desirable.
There is a model that is extremely
smart made with no trimming excepting the collarless yoke, cuffs and band
on the front of the waist of the finest
Irish. The simplicity of this gown
is most noticeable, but all the materials are of the finest and most
expensive, and there is a cut to the
skirt that marks it the design of an
expert. Fortunately, however, for
the rank and file of womanhood,
there are many models this season
that are  not expensive and are also
smart.
-t-   *   *
Two extremely stunning costumes
have just been received from her
Paris couturiere by a smart Newport
hostess, and both show the width of
each skirt as a couple of inches less
than two yards. One is of blue-and-
brown shot taffeta, with a very short
coat, the panel front of the skirt displaying the novel features of a slight
shirring at the Empire belt, and also
of an opening for four inches at the
foot on each side, a fringe of two
colours surrounding the skirt. The
other suit, of carbon-blue cloth, is
trimmed in black satin, piped with
white, and decorated with rows of
white crochet buttons, the fringe being of black, similarly placed.
* #   *.
In a famous couturier's establishment the sandal is worn by all the
manikans. This man swears that
fashionable women will some day in
the near future adopt the sandal for
street as well as house wear. The
style mentioned is the leather sandal,
without heels and slashed across the
front. The colours range from black
to light gray, with a preference for
black and tan, with hose of the same
shade. There is no reason why women should not adopt such a shoe for
general use, and since Parisians are
becoming so independent in their
ideas, we may this summer see many
examples of the sandal in Paris.
* *   *
Pique, mercerized poplins, linen,
crepe, madras, etc., either, plain, embroidered, figured or striped are the
fabrics employed in the new soft
tailored neckwear, which is severe
without  being masculine  in  effect.
* *   *
Saxe gloves, perfumed and pale of
tint, long and loose are one of the
crazes of the hour. To be sure they
are extravagant for they soil at once
and are "tres ingrats" to clean, but
they arc liked well and worn universally; they are chic.
WHEN BRITISH COLUMBIA WAS
YOUNGER
This anecdote deals with a wetter time in
British Columbia than the present excellent
liquor laws would provide. It was a blazing
afternoon in August, and the Canadian Pacific Railway train was being held up fifteen
minutes at a jerkwater station. George Ham
got out on the platform to take the air and
stretch bis legs, when a burly, whiskered
person approached him. "Arc you goin' to
stop here, Mister?"—"No," replied Mr.
Ham, "hut why do you want to know?"—
"Well, I keep thc only decent hotel "here,
and I thought you might want to stop over
night."—"A hotel," said Mr. Ham ponder-
ingly: "perhaps we can do business. You
might fetch a couple of lager up lo the
train."—"Ain't got any lager."—"Well," said
Mr.' Ham, "I'm not particular. A bottle of
ale will do as well."—The hotel-keeper shifted
his feet in an embarrassed way and said:
"To tell you the truth, Mister, we don't sell
no  soft   drinks   here."

matter at once." As this letter did not
produce any effect another was sent on
July 28th, 1911, also signed "J. F. Pres-
sey," in which, although the firm had stated
in the first instance that the matter was
left entirely in their hands, they considerately said that "Mr. Green will accept $15
as a settlement, rather than be forced to
take an old lady to court." As this letter
also failed to produce any effect, it was
followed by one dated July 31st, 1911,
signed "J. F. Pressey," which The Week
does not hesitate to characterise as one of
the most contemptible and disgraceful ever
written in connection with a business transaction. It is a threat and under the circumstances approaches very near to an attempt to blackmail. Perhaps it will be
well to reproduce it verbatim and let the
readers of The Week form their own conclusion : "Dear Madam,—Are you waiting
ior an officer of the law to call on you with
a summons to appear in court? If not,
then let us know what you are going to do
about your account in our hands for collection. Can you afford the luxury of a lawsuit, court costs, lawyers' fees, and loss of
time? We know that you are in debt and
we doubt very much whether any person
in debt can afford the expense and inconvenience of an action at law. Then there
is the exposure and disgrace incident to
being sued for debt." Perhaps the most
detestable suggestion in this letter is that
Mrs. H. was in debt. As a matter of fact
she did not owe a cent in the world and
the statement therefore is not only absolutely false, but insulting. To such a letter
Mrs. H. could only make one reply; she
wrote declining any further correspondence
and stated that if the persecution was continued she would take action. Then follows the most disgraceful incident of a disgraceful episode. The Mercantile Agency
issued a large blue notice on exactly the
same form as is used by the County Court,
being headed in heavy type "Final Notice
before Suit." The document is such as any
person other than a lawyer receiving would
suppose to be a notice of the court.     It
demands that the debtor appear on or before the 15th day of August, A.D. 1911,
at three o'clock p.m. of the said day for
payment of said claim. It is dated at Victoria this 8th clay of August and signed
"For the above creditor, R. E. Collins,
LEGAL DEPARTMENT, and in the left-
hand corner at the foot is the following
note: "MAKE ALL PAYMENTS DIRECT TO DOMINION RATING &
MERCANTILE AGENCY." Of course,
here the matter rests. The widow has not,
nor will she make any payment, but has
been driven to place the matter in the
hands of a respectable firm of solicitors.
There may be no remedy, but if not, it is
a remarkable thing that a firm of sharks
can come into a Canadian city, persecute a

and finally make use of a facsimile of the
forms used by the. County Court to intimidate her and to convey the impression that
it is an order of the court. There are
methods of collecting over-due accounts
through respectable, recognised channels;
there is certainly no necessity in Victoria
to employ a firm of the character of the
Dominion Rating & Mercantile Agency.
OUR GROWING TIME—There was
a time when it could have been said
that all the rest of Canada was
growing, while Victoria was standing still.
That time did not end until four or five
years ago. When the progressive movement began most people thought it was
spasmodic, and predicted a speedy reaction.
When the American financial panic of
1907 disorganized the money market momentarily the Victoria boom was checked
and values receded. Shortly after this time
the Empress Hotel was opened; everyone
was glad to see such a splendid building
and high class accommodation, but a good
many people, including the chief officials of
the C. P. R., considered it a speculative venture, and predicted that it was far ahead
of the requirements of the times. In one
year after its opening an extensive addition
was planned; in three years a second
larger addition is demanded.    When the
hotel was opened provision was made for
a public grill, but the management thought
it would not be required for some years,
and they used it as a lumber-room. Public
demand compelled them to open it a little
later for the purpose for which it was designed, and now the grill-room is relatively
as far below the requirements of the times
as the hotel. The conditions illustrated by
the Empress Hotel can be paralleled in almost every branch of business; the city is
growing, it is growing fast and it is developing on permanent lines. A number of
gentlemen who realise this and have unbounded confidence in the future of their
city, formed a company and built the Westholme Hotel. It is a well furnished, thoroughly equipped ancl up-to-date hotel in
the centre of the business section of the
city. On Thursday night the management
threw open the largest grill-room in Canada, capable of accommodating six hundred guests. Every seat was occupied and
unless The Week is greatly mistaken this
grill will become from now on one of the
most popular resorts in the city. There has
been a loud cry for more and better accommodation for visitors; the Westholme
is the first recent attempt to solve the problem. The Prince George block, in course
of erection at the corner of Douglas and
Cormorant, is the second, and this is only
the beginning of a movement to provide
Victoria with a number of first-class hotels,
the character of which was determined by
the truly magnificent Empress and is well
maintained by the Westholme.
ANOTHER PROBLEM—For more
than twenty years a notorious woman has conducted an illegal business in Victoria. Apart from the criminality of her conduct she has added to her
offence from time to time by flouting the
officers' of the law, defying them to convict her, and generally acting in such a
contumacious manner as to bring the administration of law into disrepute and to
raise not a few serious misgivings in the
public mind. A week ago she figured prominently in a sensational and disgraceful
scene in the police court.   If she had
committed to gaol immediately for
tempt of court it might have been btl
As it was, her case was remanded fl
