the only Liberal with intelligence and

the Liberal press. They cannot be
answered by the throwing of another
handful of mud, and therefore we fear
are not likely to be answered at all.
Meanwhile decent minded people,
who have retained some reverence for
principles and the political standards
to whicli they were educated, and
who refuse to take goods bearing a
government. This plea is not a frank
outspoken one, but the conclusion is
inevitable. Either it means that or
nothing. It may be briefly paraphrased thus: '' The World always had misgivings as to the success of party
lines, it acquiesced unwillingly in deference to the expressed wish of the
constituencies, its misgivings were well
founded, neither party governs the
Province, the Socialists are the dictators, McBride's scalp dangles from their
girdle, party government has proved a
lamentable failure, ergo, 'terminate
it." 'Now this sounds rather funny,

We make no comment, preferring to
leave the gentle and charitable message of the Doctor couched in chaste
English, to do its own convincing
work. The Doctor said at Ottawa:
"I don't know how it is here; but I
know how it is in England, and how
it is getting to be in the States—how
it is becoming the fashion for 'respectable' people to turn their homes

Race According to Dr. C. A.
Suicide. Hodgetts, Secretary to
the Provincial Board of
Health of Ontario, the question of
race suicide is becoming acute in that
Province, where for years it has flourished unchecked. He declares that
he is in possession of statistical information which if given to the world
would he astounding and would
arouse public sentiment. Our own
opinion is that this is the one vi'al
problem of the times. It stares us in
the face everywhere; it invades tht
home and wrecks marital relations'.
It drives many a man to folly who
under normal and natural conditions
would he a good husband and Either.
Worse than all, it is demoralizing
womanhood, and so striking a blow at
the finest instincts of our race and
the brightest hopes for its advancement. The woman who purchases the
acquiescence of her husband in such
a course little recks of the price she
will have to pay sooner or later.

this year they proved no exception to

fault could be found with the equipment, but the arrangements for handling passengers left much to he desired. Men and women were allowed
to crowd on board long nfter the
capacity was taxed to the utmost reasonable limit. More were taken over
than could be brought buck within the
day. Many persons were slightly iu-
jured and one womnn somewhat seriously, and for not a few the day's

issues so well expressed in "R. G.

dwindling circulation of the slanderous Victoria Times on the grounds

Saving The Vancouver World is
Its Face. not altogether devoid of
that species of cunning
instinct which leads the rat to desert
the sinking ship. After having
utterly failed to justify any of the
slanderous charges it has made against
certain members of the McBride Administration and noticing signals of
distress flying at various points in
the Liberal camp it begins to realize
that its campaign of vilification and
abuse is doomed to end in failure and
that people with a shred of self-respect will refuse to be identified with
men who have no policy but to defame
their opponents. The admission is obvious throughout a lengthy editorial
appearing in Wednesday's issue of the
World entitled "Are Party Lines a
Failure?" The whole article is an
appeal for the abandonment of party
lines and the formation of a coalition
smile at the guilelessness of the writer
who with childish simplicity spreads
the net in sight of the bird.   The aim
is too clear, the purpose too obvious.
Having failed to make any impression on the electorate with a series \
of false charges, face to face with a j
period of prosperity never before ap- j
proached in the history of the Prov-1
ince, confronted with the repudiation |
i and desertion of decent men who find ,
j their party allegiance strained to the
breaking point the World sees that
the same is about up and that on
party lines they can never hope for
a successful issue in the next campaign.   So the suggestion is abandon
party lines, ostensibly because they
have proved a failure in reality because    the Government   has so entrenched itself in the confidence of the
Province that party lines are indeed
a failure from the standpoint of the
World.   This yellow journal has during the last six months given many
evidences of senility, this is the most
convincing.   Tf the World intends to
abandon party lines well and good,
that Mr, McBride and the loaders of
the Conservative party would entertain such an idea is inconeeiva'ble.
Some more skilful    move than  this
will have to be made or the World's
second plan of campaign will be ns

tragedy in what is called high society'
of unsuspecting girls inveigled into
bridge parties, supposing they are
not playing for money, and when the
night is over they are required to

Naked Truths.
Clad in their primeval paint and a red
blanket apiece, Chief Joe Capilano and
Chief Charlie of Cowichan have boarded the great devil-wagon and are now
speeding on their way to meet the Little
White Father in his big tepee called
Buckingham. They expect a hi-yu time,
so they told me in confidence, and will
return to their tribes greater than they
have been, for that they have rubbed
noses wilh the muckamuck of the white
men and smoked the pipe of peace with
him beside his own tent pole. There is
no doubt Joe and Charlie will be given
a cordial reception. The British public
love "colour" and the presence of the
noble red man in their midst will recall
the thrills of heroism that jarred their
marrow when in younger days, they
conned the romantic pages of Fenimore
Cooper. These children of nature will
appeal to their jaded appetites and add
a soupcon to society fare, the last olive
of a season rapidly dying. The two
chiefs have no intention of returning
empty-handed nor empty-handed do they
go. Of the squaws to them none is so
fair as they believe the white maidens
to be, and if they con contract alliances
with the daughters of chiefs worthy of
their state all will be over but the counting of beadwork and blankets. At Kamloops they will hold a pow-vvow with
others of their race on this momentous
question and the obstacle of religion-will
not, as in the petty Anglo-Spanish alliance, debar them from choosing their
consorts from among the effetest of the
aristocracy of England. Hence there
are whisperings behind the smoke-stained canvas of their "hushed seraglios"
and to-night many a bereft squaw sits
and wonders, gloomy-eyed, if ber couch
is to be left unto her desolate, and a
foreign maiden is to take her place as
chief slave to her dusky lord and master. Joe and Charlie bear with them
largesse of carved ivory, painted totem
and ornatesl basket work as dowry for
tbe women of their choice and mean lo
get the worth of their money. These
trans-atlantic alliances arc now so fashionable.
Btu joking apart, it is certainly a desirable thing that majesty should at
times come in contact with tbe rarest
material of its wide dominions. The
collar, shirt and cuff colonist fails to
impress witb that feeling of territorial
possession which the primitive aboriginal carries wrapped about him as it
were—and often instead of—a garment
When the great chief—who knew what's
what—called on Victoria the good, he
bore with him little but what his mother
gave him at birth, but I am sure he was
far more convincing and impressive than
a whole delegation of badly frock-coated
colonials. One feels tbat here is the
savage curbed by the bit of empire, a
tribute in itself to the truism that Britain rules dominions ever in the eye of
tbe sun.
The Tongues of Men and Angels.
We in Vancouver, as you may have
observed from my remarks in earlier
issues, look up to our City Fathers, as
the nursling looks up to nurse. And
very like a nurse, they teach us a language entirely foreign to tbat of the
best grammarians and dialeticians. True
they do not remark to us "Did'ums" in
conciliatory tones, or address us endearingly as "Popsy Wopsy," but they
never fail to treat us to an argot of
an elder growth. "I guess," said one
of these, our pastors and masters, to a
delegation thc other day, "It's up to you
fellers to make good on this racket. We
chaps ain't here for our health. What
you giving ns? Skiddoo!" or words to
that effect. Now is this kind of thing
good for a nursling city, still in the
teething stage, and anxious to imbibe
erudition as its mother's milk? The
slang of the Council Chamber is the
slang of the Bowery aud the tenderloin.
And, moreover, it is unconscious slang,
so the younger generation drinks it in
with a firm belief that the aldermen are
the Lord's anointed and as kings can do
no wrong. The community is tainted
with Amcricanese, caught fresh from
.those purling brooks of oratory that
flow unceasingly from the cigar-stained
lips of this congcrie of grace and reverend signors.
"Forget It."
As I remember in the last issue these
old gentlemen who control the vital
forces of a city anxious to raise itself
to a rather higher level than a Yankee
backwoods town, took upon themselves
to ignore the existence of Dominion
Day and the memory of Confederation,
The citizens' money, quoth they, was
too precious for them to expend a paltry
thousand or so to make glad the hearts
of the thousands of guests whom Vancouver entertains each First of July.
However, I doubt whether the visitors
this year were aware of the fact. Less
bloated corporations than the civic, put
their hands deep in their pockets and
effected Such a lavish display as put any
previous celebration to shame.
SPORTING COMMENT
ON PASSING .EVENTS], -
VANCOUVER.
The Vancouver Lacrosse Club is feeling rather ashamed of itself at the poor
exhibition it put up against New Westminster. The match on Monday was
not worth a fraction of the space that
was given to it in the daily papers. All
that it amounted to was that the Royal
City twelve appear to be facile princeps
still, and Vancouver needs to put in almost a year's practice before it can trot
in the same class.
Talking of trotting, the Jockey Club
gave the public a card never excelled at
the Hastings track. Fortunately, in
spite of classic simile, there was very
little trotting. This form of horse-racing appeals to but few sportsmen, and
is never to be compared in interest to the
flat race. The going was good all
through the meeting, and I have never
seen closer finishes than some of those
recorded.
We are still waiting to hear the fate
of the Mackie trophy. The Wideawake
had such a walk-over on Tuesday that
it seems impossible, whatever the conditions when the race is sailed over again,
that the Gwendolin should come within
a mile of her.
VICTORIA.
Preparations are being made among
the J. B. A. A. oarsmen for the trip to
Nelson to enter in the rowing races of
the N. P. A. 0. Association. The
crews will leave here about the 20th in
order to get into shape for the races,
which take place on June 27th and 28th.
His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor,
James Dunsinuir, has contributed $50
towards the tund for defraying the
necessary expenses in connection with
sending representatives from the J. B.
A. A. to compete.
A match has been arranged between
the Victoria Hillside and Nanaimo
teams, to be played on the afternoon1 of
lhe 12th of July at Beacon Hill. The
Victoria Hillsides played Nanaimo two
games last Sunday and Monday, winning one and losing the other. The local nine are looking forward to the return engagement, when they hope to gain
a decisive victory.
On Monday evening the local High
school nine played a similar Vancouver
team at the Terminal City and were defeated.   The score was 11 to 4.
Local players are looking forward to
the final match between the Central and
Victoria West teams for the Times
trophy with considerable interest. No
definite decision has been reached as to
when the contest will take place, but
next Friday or either next Wednesday
or Friday evenings of next week have
been suggested. It is hardly probable,
however, that it will take place this
week.

The Shamrocks defeated Souris in the
first of the Minto cup series by a score
of ten to two.
As a result of the match the visitors
asked that the second game of the series
be called off.
Torrey and Alexander.
To the Editor of the Week:
Sir,—You have strangely misread the
published extract from the letter of Dr.
Torrey and are almost as much astray in
your facts as in your judgment of his
character.
So far from our "being threatened
with a visit," Dr. Torrey distinctly says
'I do not think we can visit the Pacific
Coast in the near future." It is true
that he adds: "I expect to be there for
a few days this summer at a Conference." But this is plainly only a personal visit to some place on this coast,
it may be many hundred miles from
Victoria.
It was my good fortune to work with
Moody and Sankey in two of their missions, as well as with Torrey and Alexander, in the great London missions of
1905, and the latter do not suffer by comparison with the former. The men are
different in type and sometimes in
method, but the message is the same,
and so far from Dr. Torrey being a
sensationalist as compared with Mr.
Moody, he is a stern logician with less of
the persuasive element and far more
of the convincing force of absolute
proof.
I cannot help but think that if Dr.
Torrey were dead and Mr. Moody alive
and at work you would have written a
similar paragraph with the names reversed.
I presume the allusion to myself is
not intended as a compliment, but it is
far more acceptable than praise would
be in this connection and I thank you
for your unintended flattery.
Yours sincerely,
THOS. W. GLADSTONE.
(The editor of The Week sees no
reason to alter his opinion that any projected visit of Mr. Torrey to the Coast
portends a subsequent mission of which
Mr. Gladstone's own admission that he
has "worked" with the firm elsewhere
would appear to designate him as the
agent in advance. The Week has never
questioned the bona fides of Mr. Gladstone or the men whom he champions
and regrets that he cannot comment on
so simple a matter as the one under
discussion without resorting to the stock-
in-trade of his class, the imputation of
improper motives and bad faith. When
he undertakes to compare Torrey with
Mr. Moody, to the disadvantage of the
latter, he classifies bis position as a
critic.)
The annual club handicap of the Victoria Lawn Tennis Club will commence
on Monday afternoon at the courts on
Belcher street, when it is expected there
will be more competitors than for some
years past. The courts have recently
been put in very fine condition, and are
playing very fast, and some very interesting matches arc looked for.

Her autograph book of blue—
And she said: "Write it straight, now,

And something nice and true."
Stiffly and squarely he wrote a line
For his queen with the eyes of blue—
Proudly,  and signed  it, "Tommy"—
"Maggie, I love you true."
A youth came from a college—
A  student grave and wise-
He looked at the little old autograph
book;
He looked at her true blue eyes.
And he scrawled, with cynical smiling,
In the old, old book of blue,
Of the folly of love, and signed it,
"Thomas Reginald Hugh."
A man came from his labors,
Learned in the school of years;
Gazed   at   the   little    blue   book,   and

And gazed,  as he  dreamed, through
tears.
Then be looked and saw her smiling,
Witb tears in her eyes of blue.
And he wrote and signed it, "Tommy"—

; be arranged for coffee, rolls, and
Colonist at 11.30 a.m.   The coffee
fd rolls were in evidence at the ap-
inted time—but no Colonist.
Force of habit and a long course of
London Times at breakfast have so
Imlded my constitution that it is as
possible for me to eat breakfast with-
t the morning news as to eat dinner
thottt wine, or salad without oil. En-
iry over the telephone elicited the
sitive declaration that the paper had
:n delivered at the usual hour—5 a.m.,
t no one had seen it.
This experience was repeated for three
ys in'succession, the temperature ris-
; each time, until host, guest, manager,
livery boy, Chinaman, and all concern-
were in a state bordering on frenzy,
1 each was convinced that the other
s a confirmed liar of the first order.
So seriously was the "entente cor-
.ale" strained that, unknown to the
'hers, and being a man of resource, tbe
;anager employed a detective, who post-
!l himself in an outbuilding across the
lad, overlooking the premises.
1 Promptly at 5 a.m. the delivery boy
lipeared, flung a folded Colonist over the
pdge on to the lawn and disappeared.
I'en minutes after the detective sneaked
the hedge and looked over. The paper
>ill lay there. He returned to his van-
ige point and watched. Tbe next time
e looked the paper was missing. He
mid hardly believe his eyes. Not a
prson had apeared in sight, the front
i?or   was   still   locked,   the   household
fleep.
Being a man of resource, he hurried
wf to the Colonist office, procured anther paper, Hung it on the lawn and
I'ouchcd behind the hedge to watch for
solution  of    the mystery.      Fifteen
iinutes passed, the paper still lay there,
en a slight noise under the verandah
traded his attention. Slowly a yellow
ig emerged, a sort of mongrel-setter-
illie, with the predatory instincts of a
Ijountain rat. He slunk across the
'own, grabbed the paper, and darted
jick to his lair. The mystery was
Dived. Search revealed no fewer than
(n Colonists carefully spread out on
ie canine couch. The delivery boy's
iputation for truthfulness and the de-
ictive's for sagacity were restored, but
hat about the yenow dog? Had it
(jen any other paper than the Colonist
[ie might have suggested "yellow
fess." Yet stray students of psychol-
gy might find some suggestion in the
vet that among the purloined papers
liich the dog had torn open, and laid
fipermost, were pictures representing
spectively "Adam and Eve as they
,ust have appeared," by Professor Ab-
?tt, of Columbia University; "The Size
i An Angel's Wing, with full particu-
rs of his weight and height," and "The
!urder of a husband by a wife, showing
pw to transfix him with a pair of
issors." That yellow dog had a nose
•r sensation, if not for news.
Twice in one week have I journeyed
n the gloaming" to the Gorge Park
order to see the far-famed London
Eoscope and twice have I been fooled,
ie only consolation I have is that I
f'ts not alone in my folly. Last Mon-
y night about 2,000 people were on
e same mission bent, at least that was
e pretext, but I noticed that while
ere were a few murmurings the ma-
t'ity of the disappointed ones quickly
nsoled themselves, canoe, boat, launch,
Gorge Park being the medium,
lit has taken me years to understand
|iy thc Gorge is such an attraction.   I
just beginning to learn, which goes
(prove that I am "slow," without   be-
absolutely "sure.     But then is a
lunger sure of anything?   Is he   not
try much like a waif straying, drifting,
j mayhap being buffetted from pillar to
Jst'.    Useful   in  an  emergency,  quite
I'e to confide in, because neither supped nor permitted to have feelings,
always expected to have a clear head
fd an endless fund of experience to
jiW on; some bit of philosophy to fit
I'ry case, some bridge of safety over
'ry chasm, some sure way out of
rv maze—fot others, but no way for
iself.    He  may think,  he must not
feel. He may hear, he must not speak.
He may catch a ray of sunlight, he must
not count on the shining. He is only
a Lounger, the one that looked on, and
at the end—which soon conies—he
wakes up from his reverie, the panorama
passes, and he is once more lounging at
the street corner. My word, isn't that
Gorge a fine place?
By the way, talking of the Gorge reminds me either that the bathing regulations are defective, or that they are
disregarded. Mixed bathing is all right,
under proper restrictions; indeed, as far
as I am concerned, having Sojourned in
the South Sea Islands for six months, I
have no very puritanical ideas on the
subject. I quite agree with Dorothy in
"Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary," that
where the full meaning of "Hon Soit
qui mal-y-pense" is understood a pearl
necklace or a star and garter are sufficient by way of costume but I am not
sure that public opinion has yet reached
that sublime stage in Victoria; I would
therefore suggest that bathing suits of
the clinging diaphanous sort are slightly
"de trop," even it only intended for
public display.
To use a vulgarism the people of Victoria are "up against it." Mayor Morley is zealously prosecuting the milk
crusade, his inspector has nabbed a gross
offender on my favorite street corner,
the milk has been analysed and found to
be  badly  adulterated,    the    mayor    is
ready to prosecute, but	
"In the nice sharp quillets of the law
Good faith he is no wiser than a daw."
As the hot weather has arrived and
excuses for doctoring milk are prevalent
it may be a comfort to the citizens to
know that more "preservatives" are being sold than ever, and they are getting
free acids with their milk, all because
there is a doubt as to the strength of
the city by-laws; at least, that is the
talk at my street corner, and there is
god reason to believe that it is true. As
I only take milk or cream in my coffee
and on my strawberries it does not affect me much, in fact, I am now using
claret almost entirely with the latter and
like it better, but infants cannot take
claret, and there are several in the city.
The remarkable popularity of the excursions to Port Angeles on the glorious
fourth leads one to aks why these delightful trips are not arranged more frequently during the hot weather, at popular rates. Given a comfortable boat, a
moonlight return, and a cheap rate,
there would be no difficulty in booking
a full complement of passengers at any
time. I have lounged in a score of
countries on four continents, but none
could compare with this for a moonlight
excursion.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Repudiate the Liberal Party.
To the Editor of the Week:
Living an out-of- the-way life, I have
only just seen your issue of June 23, in
which you copy my letter to the Times
of the 18th, with comments of your own
thereon—wondering what compulsion
the Times was under to publish a letter
controverting its statements in regard
to the meeting at Ganges, and what
"pull" I had to so compel it. May I
say in fairness to the Times, and in a
less degree to myself, that I have no
position, influence or "pull" whatever,
and that it is extremely unlikely that
the Times had ever heard of me or
knew anything about me. We must unfortunately believe that newspapers arc
not always just and fair to political opponents. May we not believe that they
sometimes are, and that the Times published a letter from an obsure person,
though at variance with its own views,
simply from fairness and courtesy? And
will you not follow the example of the
Times, and make or permit an admission
favorable to an opponent?
R. G. G.
Samuel Island, July 4, 1006.
I ask you in courtesy to publish (lie
above. Whether (be following opinions
seem worth publishing to you and you
have room or not I cannot say. Probably not, and it is of little or no importance. Your allusion in your comments on my letter, to a type of Liberalism that is not much in evidence now,
prompts me to try and deal as briefly as
possible with that matter, one always of
genuine concern to myself. "Retrenchment and Reform" have always been
two of the leading principles of traditional Liberalism; the need of them always existing. According to my information, the present Government is tbe
first in this Province to seriously and
honestly adopt these principles and endeavor to act on them, and in other
matters, according to my information,
its actions arc consistent with true Liberalism. I herefore old-fashioned Liberals, like myself, regarding the substance of things rather than the name,
support the policy, however its promoters are named.   I have always seen that
one of the most pressing needs of the
Province was that its finances should
be placed on a sound footing, and that
it should pay its way like an honest
community; and 1 have promised to
myself tbat I would support the first
Government, Liberal or Conservative,
that had the courage to face the unpopular course of raising taxation to
meet obligations and fitting expenditure
to revenue, so that one might feel the
pride of citizenship in an honest country. True Liberalism has always endeavored to keep in touch with the people and to educate them. Since I have
been in this Province. I have ever wondered that members of Parliament and
politicians only came around in the
country at election times, and then too
often did little more than abuse the
other side and that it has not been the
duty and interest of these gentlemen,
as in other countries, to oftener meet
the electors, educate them on the important questions of the country's welfare,
and give them better opportunities of informing themselves on certain matters,
also of expressing their views, than
those afforded by the weekly paper of
one side or the other. In this, credit is
due to the present Government, and let
others follow their example, rather than
cavil at it.
The most inspiring ideas of Liberalism
at its best have always been to combat
monopoly and class-privilege, to broaden
down the bases of freedom and equalize,
as far as possible, conditions and opportunities for all. Where does one now
see monopoly, favoritism, privilege?
Among political grafters, in the money
power of Governments, and, alas to
have to confess it, in Governments with
a big majority I The wholesale corrupting of the electorate, the tampering
with the machinery of elections, as we
have seen it in many instances in the
East, tends to sap the very foundations
of freedom and to destroy true democracy. All that combats the evils here
alluded to is true Liberalism, whatever
name it goes by now, and can find inspiration and example in the record's of
the Liberalism of old. As an old Liberal,
by conviction and heredity, I support
the cause, the principles, wherever I
can, regardless of persons or of party
names.
Tbe Times has recently opened its
columns to the musings of a "Saanich
Hayseed" who, in his prophetic vein,
dreams of higher standards all round.
May a "hayseed" of much smaller calibre venture the long-pent and unwonted
expression of a desire, shared by many
other "hayseeds," for higher standards
and cleaner methods in public affairs.

Things are quiet at Victoria in thc
theatrical lire. Thespians are taking a
rest while tennis, canoeing, and garden
partying are having a turn.
The new Grand continues to be an attraction, and good houses are the order
of the day and night. Although there is
nothing this week quite as high-class as
Levy's artistic skewing, the entertainment  provided    by  Manager Jamieson
has delighted his patrons. Emmett and
Rigby have been the attractions, with
tlle Hoffmanns a good '.second.
At the Victoria there has been one
fizzle and one ''success d'estime." Tlle
McSweync Stock Co. were not in il,
and played to empty benches, as they
deserved.
Henrietta Crosman essayed the role
in Sardott's "Scrap of Paper." rendered
famous by Mrs. Kendal, witb questionable success. Miss Crosman has been an
acceptable actress, and still has some
skill, but she is not cut out for such
parts as the one under consideration.
The effort to look young and carry off
the girlish humor was too palpable,
whilst ber make-up was anything but artistic. The support was, to say the least,
indifferent, the leading man being a
"stick." Altogether Manager Ricketts is
to be commiserated with that he did
not close tbe season with the Nat Goodwin engagement, which was in every
sense a notable success, and one which
made the Crosman show look like
thirty cents.
M. Rosseau, a brilliant young musician who has been residing in Vancouver recerttly, has arrived in Victoria
for three months' rest and study.
Mr. Benedict Bantlcy, thc Victoria
nianist and violinist, has returned from
T.eipsic, and was tendered a public reception in Institute Hall on Wednesday
evening.

The whirligig of Time certainly brings
about sonic curious situations in matters political. Just a little over a year
ago, or, to be exact, ('.tiring thc latter
part of May and the early pari of June,
1905, The Week had occasion to criticize very adversely the aims and methods of the organization knwon as the
B, C. Loggers' Association. That aug-
use body was at the time—as we carefully explained to the public—mainly
if not entirely composed of one W. H.
Higgins (formerly of a certain fame
around Chemainus), aud one J. S. Emerson ; but most especially one J. S. Emerson. Mr. Emerson's views were of
what might be called a politico-commercial nature, and, through a' little
financial transaction, the details, of
which, out of a kindly consideration for
British Columbia journalistic credit, we
will not go into more fully just now, he
secured thc support of our dear old
friend, the Vancouver World. This, by
the way, was not so very difficult. Even
at that time you had only to hold up
your finger and say 'McBride," and the
World would froth at tlle mouth.
Of the pitiful end of that campaign
there is little need to speak. Tbe apology of the Vancouver World lo Mr.
McBride still stands pre-eminent as the
most abject piece of 'crawling" and
backing down in the history of British
Columbian politics. And Mr. Emerson,
descried by bis colleagues and newspaper allies, was forced to turn his versatile  talents  in  other  directions.
This is all ancient history now, and
is merely referred lo in so far as it is
necessary to remind the public that The
*V"cek at that time look a very strong
stand against thc B. C. Loggers' Association as represented by Mr. J. S. Emerson. Il was pointed out in these columns that Mr. Emerson's efforts had
beeu consistently in the line of disposing
of British Columbia's timber resources
in such a manner that the province
should reap the smallest possible benefit from them and that thc heritage of
the people should be given away to
strangers. It was pointed out that the
strongest opposition to the Act regulating thc export of logs came from the
same ominous combination of persons,
and that, when the Act was finally passed, the B. C. Loggers' Association—
always as represented by Messrs. Higgins and Emerson, bin especially Emerson—made a savage attack on the McBride government for daring to pass
an Act which protected a valuable asset of the people of British Columbia
from highway robbery "by a band of adventurers and foreigners."
All this was carefully explained to
the public in tbe columns of tbis journal, together with a few pointed allusions to the past careers of Mr. W. IT
Higgins and Mr. J. S. Emerson—more
especially Mr. J. S. Emerson.
So strongly did The Week 1 r.ndle
this matter that some kindly and tenderhearted people thought that its language
was much too harsh in regard to thc
attitude taken by thc B. C. Loggers'
Association   as   represented   by   M*.   .1.
S. Emerson, and absolutely crurl ai
regarded its tone towards Mr. Emerson
himself.
But ''the world"—not the Vancouver
World— "do move." On Monday night
of last week, or barely a year since the
B. C. Loggers' Assoication was attacking the McBride Government tooth and
nail, the B. C. Loggers' Assoication held
.1 representative meeting in Vancouver
and passed the following noteworthy
resolution:
"That this Association is heartily in
accord with the principle of the Scaling
Bill passed by the Legislature during
the last session and coming into effect
on July ist, 1906, and brands as untruthful lhe statements appearing in lhe
press from time to time that the loggers
of lhe Coast arc against the enforcement of the Act.
"That the members of the Association pledge themselves to do all in their
power to aid the Government in carrying out the provisions of the Act.
"That lhe Association has no knowledge of any of its members past or present, being opposed to the coining in
force of the said Act, except Mr. J. S.
Emerson, whose opposition dates from
his enforced retirement from the presidency of the Association for trying to
manipulate the Association to his personal ends."
Mr. J. S. Emerson is so much moved
by thc last paragraph of this resolution
that he is suing the B. C. Loggers' Association  for libel.
But consider the beautiful revenges of
Time! It has taken the B. C. Loggers'
Association nearly a year to find out
that the Provincial Government and
The Week were right in their estimate
of Mr. J. S. Emerson, his character,
aims and methods!
A Despairing Effort.
OUR STAFF AND SELVES REST
ALL DAY SUNDAY,
BUT!! I
While we rest, trains are hauling for us
carloads of the finest Furniture, Carpets,
China, Etc., from East to West. Steamers
are racing across the Pacific bringing the
richest Rugs and Decorations from the Orient; all of which we will describe in this
space in our weekly publicity.
N. B.—We buy for cash by the carload, to give our customers bedrock prices.
A catalogue containing very valuable information and suggestions for furnishing every room in the
house, together with over 1700 illustrations, with a complete alphabetically arranged price list of everything
carried in stock, amounting to over 5,000 different articles of furniture and furnishing accessories is yours
for the asking.
Such, in truth, is the only name to
give to the astonishing attempt made
by Dr. A. S. Munro, medical inspector
and agent of the Dominion Department
of the Interior, to prevent the landing
at Vancouver last Saturday of Desire
Brothier, pet and protege of the Liberal Government, and, like most attempts which are impelled by desperation, it was singularly lacking in judgment and strategy. If the people of
Canada had needed anything to convince them that the Dominion Government had, for its own private and personal reasons, seen lit lo let loose this
dirty and degraded criminal upon the
community, tliat 'evidence has been fully
supplied by Dr. Munro's action performed at the orders of his masters in!
Ottawa.
It may be remarked here, in passing,
hat the Liberal party has been apparently frightened out of its wits by the
stir caused throughout the West over
this unsavory travestie of justice. As a
result of their fright, they are condemning themselves afresh with every
move they make in the matter. For instance, the Victoria Times of last Wednesday rises to remark, in a passion of
fury, that, if anyone said that Dr. Munro acted upon instructions from Ottawa
that person did lie most foully, as the
Doctor's action was only inspired by a
high-souled reverence for thc existing
Statutes .
This is very rich. If there were any
doubt that Dr. Munro received his instructions from Ottawa—which there isj
not—the statement of the Times that
he did not receive any such instructions
has effectually removed it.
It must not be supposed that lhe
Week is finding fault with Dr. Munro*
As the hired servant of the French politicians who rule Canada, he could do
no less than obey their orders and strive
to assist them in their very natural desire to rescue their own flesh and blood
from punishment for a crime which, in
French circles, is regarded as a very
harmless  offence.
But the worthy Doctor made one mistake. He attempted to explain. This
is fatal. Never try to explain when you
are carrying out antoher man's orders.
Dr. Munro remarked that in his opin-
ian the circumstances of Brotbier's arrival at Vancouver were covered by
Section 25 of Chapter 65 of the Statutes, which provides that no morally unclean or vicious person shall be allowed
entry into  Canada.
All of which goes to prove that a
good doctor is not necessarily a good
lawyer. The clause referred to is for
the purpose of restricting undesirable
immigration into this country. It docs
not apply to criminals in thc bauds of
tiie law and accompanied by their
guards. Some of our contemporaries
are rude enough to hint that Dr. Munro
knew all this perfectly well. We prefer to take the more charitable view
that, being a medical man and not a
legal one, he was merely conversing
through bis Panama, and that the exercise of his conmonsense faculties was
overwhelmed by that zeal for thc faithful performance of his duties which sits
so well on a good and honest public
official.
Still, it is rather hard on Sir Wilfrid
Laurier that the already endangered
safety of his friend and compatriot
should be still further jeopardized by
the well-meaning bungling of an honest
but stupid servant bewildered by Ottawa instructions.

Hi*
By BOHEMIAN.
Years ago I revelled in the pages of
an English weekly that purveyed the best
jokes, the hottest stories, and thc most
delicious tit-bits extant. If there was
anything loo spicy for the dailies, or even
for lire society journals, you could safely reckon on finding it in the columns
of the dear old Pink'un,    Those, need
less to say, were my salad days, when J
! with keen palate and unsated appetite a I
j roving band of true Bohemians sought,
j what tasty pabulum they might devour, i
I Now, alas, the flavor has gone, and even
the Pink'un is sometimes stale, flat, and
unprofitable.
I Just as I was beginning to despair of
ever again finding a substitute a friend
made a suggestion, and, strange to relate, his discovery is no hoax, as I half
feared. There is a Coast paper which
can give all the writers on the Pink'un
points in the art of unearthing savory
morsels and dishing them up wilh "sauce
piquante." If you, too. blase reader,
doubt, just get a copy of the Vancouver
World for Tuesday last, and read the
editorials on the Thaw case—you will
be convinced. The middle paragraph is
a 'hummer," 1 would reproduce it but
that I know the Victoria police read
The Week. I
All that goes on the courts does not
see the light of day, thanks to the con-1
sideraie  torgettulness    of   the    much-1
abused pressman.    Tn a recent case of
burglary, or rather attempted burglary,
frustrated by the smartness of Detective
Palmer, the chief witness was the wife
of lhe man whose house had been the
scene of operations.    One of the first
questions put to the    lady was:    "At
what time of thc night was it that you
saw  the  prisoner    in    your    room?" 1
"About two o'clock," • said the witness. |
"Was there a light in the room at that
time?"   "No; lhe room was quite dark." i
"Could you  see your husband at your
side?"   "No, sir."   "Then, madam," ob-i
served  the  attorney,  his  eye  gleaming j
with triumph, "you will kindly explain 1
to this intelligent jury how it was that j
you  could   see   the  prisoner   and   yet |
could  not  see your    husband?"    "Be-1
cause  my  husband   was  at   his club," I
quietly responded the lady. 1
I never go to church on Sunday from !
conscientious motives. The strongest
impelling one is tllat I do not believe in
doing myself what I cannot force others
to do. As an alternative I have lately
satisfied auy scruples I may have had
by reading the imported sections of the
Sunday Colonist to my landladies'
children, one a.bright little boy of ten
and lhe other a sweet girlie of eight. I
find the special Sunday reading imported from Seattle, printed in special type,
and specially illustrated the best 'substitute for the silly old fashioned Bible
stories whom nobody now believes, that
I have ever come across. They are
thoroughly up-to-date, they detail thc
latest authentic researches of the most
eminent American professors, and as
works of art, both literary and pictorial,
1 hey arc simply wonderful—at the price.
, It is easy to understand, in view of tbis
i monumental historic and religious sup
plement, prepared regardless of cos|
why such a fight has been made by
certain section of the press for the re
tention of Sunday papers. What woul

Not So Easy.
Despite the beating of drums and wav-
jing of flags by Duncan Ross and his
I scaramouch brigade the V. V. & E. still
I hangs fire.    Few men are working on
the grade at any point north of the In-
! ternational   Boundary   line.    The   first
1 stretch  from the line to Keremeos, by
far the easiest is not nearly completed,
i and now comes the news that the Co-
quihuila pass over the Hope Mountains
is to be abandoned.
This is evident by the fact, that, al-
' though the contour map of the line from
I Cloverdale to Princeton has been filed,
Messrs. Baldwin and Ambum, railway
j engineers for the V. V. & E., left Princeton last week with Luke Gibson as guide
I to explore the Hope Mountains and the
, upper reaches  of the Tulameen  river.
I The party will endeavor to locate a lower
pass than that of the Coquihaila and a
thorough investigation of every known
[ pass, including the Skagit, will be made.
Those in authority are evidently not satisfied with the present survery as being
[expensive in construction and operation,
Ifacts which the C. P. R. realized thirty
[years ago.
Fruit Growers Organize.
The fruit growers in the vicinity of
Kermeos have formed an organization
to be known as the Similkameen Fruit
Growers' Assoication. Frank Richter,
who has one of the finest orchards in
Canada, was elected president, as a slight
recognition of the valuable service he
has rendered this part of the country,
by practically demonstrating that tbe
choicest kinds of fruit can be grown
there.
A Good Work.
Dr. Fagan's visit to the Okanagan has
borne fruit already in many places, tht
latest is Summerland, wher a local
branch of the B. C. Anti-Tuberculosis
Society is under way with Mesdames
Robinson, Sutherland and Fysh as a
committee to guide its destinies. In the
selection of a spot for the proposed
sanitarium in this connection, the Okanagan district lias unrivalled claims in
the matter of climate and surroundings.
A Judicious Appeal.
The Week wishes, to emphasize the
following remarks taken from a recent
{issue of the Cowichan Leader. In a new
(country whilst everyone is struggling
[to attract population and develop resources the local paper must ever be tbe
[most potent agent.
'The Cowihcan Leader has had an ef-
[fect in the development of the district
[during the past year. That has been
[plainly shown by correspondence and
[copy taken from its columns. What the
[Leader would like is the support of every
[loyal citizen in the district. There is
[nothing that will help a community more
[than a local newspaper."
Conrad Heard From.
Conrad City although in its infancy
;is growing strong and lusty and will
[soon be fairly on its feet. It is prac-
Itically the pioneer of mining in tlle
■Windy Arm district which the Provin-
Icial Mineralogist believes is destined to
Ibecome an important mining centre. The
IConrad mining companies are making
ta shipment of 54 sacks of ore to Denver,
(Colorado, where it will be treated by
■experts for the purpose of ascertaining
lthe kind of treatment that will result in
extracting the greatest values from the
ore at the least expense.
Congratulations.
Revelstoke is participating in the
('growing time". Arthur Johnson, tlle
pditor of lhe Mail-Herald, gave us a

Educated Nelson.
A Nelson man sleped into Wes. Cline's
jiarbcr shop the other day and getting
|nto the chair asked to have a hair cut.
'How will you have your hair cut,
tir?" said Cline to the victim in the

has been superintendent of the Tyee
mine at Mount Sicker, was tendered a
farewell reception and dance on Saturday evening on severing his connection
with the company to take up his residence in Victoria, where he will follow
his profession of mining engineer.
B. C. Fruit.
"There is little need for this province
to spend money in trying to induce immigrants from other countries lo come
here and settle. The best immigration
work that British Columbia can do is to
develop the fruit-growing industry and
to send large quantities of first-class
fruit, properly grown, harvested, packed,
and shipped, to the Northwest this will
bring our own people here as soon as
they become tired of the more rigorous
climate of the prairies.'"
Thus writes Mr. Maxwell Smith, Dominion fruit inspector, in the Britisli
Columbia Review.
What Is the Matter?
In spite of the fact that Editor Deane
is working overtime in the endeavor to
get ahead of the Daily Canadian he does
not seem to have been very successful
in consolidating his own party or in
producing that atmosphere of serenity
which is so essential to success in family
councils. So little agreed are the leaders in their attitude towards the immigration policy of the Federal Government that a recent meeting of the Liberal party refused to accept a resolution
of their president, A. B. Docksteader,
and the meeting had to be adjourned to
give time for the excitement to cool.
Evidently the Daily Canadian is getting
in some educative work and the people
are beginning to think. Editor Deane
may be right after all, and there may
not be room for two papers in Nelson.
A Good Car Service.
Everyone in Victoria agrees that we
have an excellent car service. Few
cities of 30,000 population have as good.
Thc Vancouver press is now singing the
praises of the B. C. E. R. for recent improvements in car supply, and lime
schedule. A four minute service is
promised to New Westminster in the
near future, It pays to secure the goodwill of the community. Arbitrariness is
is the bane of most monopolists, but fair
treatment is their bulwark.

"No, no," she cried, "it could not be;
Those infant eyes would torture me,
Though God condoned my simple ways,
I could not meet my child's pure gaze."
She hid ber face upon her knees,
And swayed as reeds sway in a breeze.
"Oh,   Christ!"   she   moaned,   "could   I
forget
There might be something for me yet,
But though both God and man forgave
And I should win thc love I crave,
The retrospect would drive mc wild—
My memory, and my darling child."

To make her final fall complete
She puts her soul beneath her feet.
Man's dual self seems separate,
He  leaves  his  soul  outside  sin's gate,
And finds it waiting when be tires
Of earthly pleasures and desires;
But Woman, far more complicate
Can take no chances with her fate:
A subtle creature, finely spun,
Her body and her soul are one.

With the Ponies.
The two days' racing nt the Driving Park on June 30th and July 2nd
were certainly a success as far ns the
quality of the racing, the management and the promptitude with which
the events were pulled oft', were concerned. The slim attendance on Saturday and the not very large crowd
who attended Monday must he accounted for hy the fact that there
were very few local horses entered
'for Uie purses. With the exception
of the two driving races the entries
were all imported horses and although
they were a classy bunch and put up
some line finishes, there was a decided
lack of interest in the runners. If
a few more local gee-gees had been
competing, a larger and more enthusiastic crowd would have swelled the
receipts, bought more pools and peanuts and altogether helped out socially and financially au otherwise well
arranged two-days' sport. Far and
away the best event of the meet was
the 2:45 trotting race which practically became a match race between
Grandpa Hollingshead' famous old
horse "B. C. King" and C. A. Harrison's "Mike Director." The only
record broken in this event was the
age record of the driver, as the venerable owner of the "King" holds all
record for "aged" drivers on the
world's tracks. Only in such a climate as Victoria possesses would it
be possible to find such a well preserved old sportsman of 7(i driving his
own horse and winning' three straight
heats in finishes where only nerve and
skill could have won from the superb
driving which mine host Harrison of
the Driard gave his now famous bus
horse "Mike." In a little over a
month's training C. A. Harrison had
taken a green horse, worked him out
and forced thc pace in a 2:45 class
event until the last heat wns clipped
oft in the good time of 2:28 2-;"). This
time for a half mile track which was
not in the best condition for fust work-
is certainly not slow and it goes to
show what a great victory it was for
old Grandpa Hollingshead. The running races were all good and the winners in most of them were hard to
pick. The boy on "Mnxlress" rode
a line finish on Saturday and "May
Holiday" won both the mile events ill

drive right up to the wire.

Notes on
Canadian News
Reaping the Harvest.
News comes from Halifax, N.S., that
the Dominion Iron & Steel company
have secured a contract for 50,000 tons
of sixty pound rails from Mackenzie &
Mann, of the C. N. R., for their railway systems east and west. This is
thc largest single contract ever secured
by any company.
Ten years ago this would have been
considered the wildest dream. That was
before the wizard Whitney appeared on
the scene. Such a prediction with reference to Vancouver Isand made today
would appear to many just as improbable, yet The Week confidently declares
that in less than five years steel rails
will be rolled in British Columbia and
by that time thc destiny of the Province
by the Western Sea will have been determined.
A Crumb of Comfort.
There are so many drawbacks in connection with the peopling of the Northwest with Doukhobours, Galicians and
Buckwenas that it is gratifying to discover one redeeming feature. The Galicians arc beginning to ask for schools.
This contrasts very favorably with the
action of the Mennonites who settled
in Southern Manitoba 25 years ago but
whoh ave strenuously resisted every attempt to educate them on Canadian
lines. It begins to look as if the great
British colonizing mill is still in working order and thottgu it grinds exceedingly slow, it grinds exceedingly small
if time be given.
make the trip direct to Montreal by the
Imperial route in less time than by way
of New York. This is truly a notable
achievement and one pregnant with
meaning for the future of the Dominion.
The Horn of Plenty.
It does not pay to count one's chickens before they are hatched, but certainly one hundred and sixty favorable reports of the wheat crops in Manitoba
and the Northwest ought to justify the
feeling of jubilation which pervades
farmers, bankers and transportation
companies alike. If the reasonable expectations are justified Western Canada will indeed become a land flowing
with milk and honey for nothing like
its present prosperity has been known
even in the palmiest days of American
prosperity. It will assuredly be .the
time for development of British Columbia on a scale commensurate with its
natural   resources  and  possibilities.
The Big Push.
At last the great railway builders are
aroused and for the first time begin to
realize the enormous possibilities of the
Great West. The funnel of tbe future
Canada is the stretch of line between
Winnipeg and the lakes. Every bushel
of golden grain must be rushed along
this steel streak on its way to the hungry peoples of the Empire. The funnel
is too narrow and the traffic is congested and all this is to be remedied
by enlarging it.
On the Canadian Pacific double tracking work betwen Kenora and Fort William there are ten huge steam shovels
and 24 work trains engaged. The total
cost will be $7,000,000. By October 1,
ISO miles of track will be completed and
ready for use. On the Fort William
section 48 miles will be finished, on the
Ignace 55 miles, and on the Kenora
47 miles,
Moving With The Times.
English financiers are displaying more
sympathy with the requirements of Canadian business and are rapidly abandoning old fashioned for up-to-date methods
in thc race for supremacy. The Bank
of British North America bas in hand a
plan whereby a Canadian directorate will
be established. This it is understood
would not do away wilh the present
London board but would rather supplement it. Thc idea of a British institution, such as the Bank of British North
America having a Canadian directorate
is not altogether new as some of the
insurance companies, such for instance
as the Liverpool, London & Globe, have
a Canadian as well as a British board.
A Real Hero.
Canada has not made enough of Sherring, yet his performance, in the Marathon race is distinctly and unquestionably the greatest physical feat ever performed by a Canadian. Fancy a slender,
narrow yomh with none of the appearance of an athlete running nearly 25
miles against the picked runners of all
nations and winning out by sheer pluck
and grit, so txhausted that he declares
he lost his sight and ran the last 200
yards blindly. Going to Athens at his
own expanse, no liberal 'amateur' 'expenses paid, a lad who scored off his
own bat and gave Canada the best advertisement the ever had. Sherring is a
hero and should be so acclaimed everywhere in the Empire. He is coming as
far West as Winnipeg. Will not British Columbia athletic organizations honor
themselves by bringing him to the
Coast ?
A Little Known Author.
Bookman who writes the literary
notes in the Winnipeg Free Press asks
if the H. W. Nevinson who wrote the
popular book 'Modem Slavery," is tbe
same author who wrote short stories
under thc pseudonym of ''N." The
writer is pleased to supply the information—the surmise is correct. Mr. Nevinson was, I believe, a Congregationalist
minister who left his calling to take up
journalism about fifteen ye~rs ago. He
lived then in Stafford-hire and spent his
time among the miners and ironworkers of the "Black Country". He 'viu-
discovered by that brilliant journalist
Robertson Nicoll about the time that
Barrie became famous. His earliest
sketches appeared in the British Weekly
and were remarkable for their dramatic
power. He soon drifted into regular
newspaper work and the "B. W." knew
him no more. He is now coming to his
own and promises to fill the place of
that briliant and powerful writer Harold
Frederic, whose "Damnation of Theron
Ware" raised the hopes of the critics
to the hichest pitch. To the dramatic
fore of Frederic Mr. Nevinson adds the
refinement and clear vision of Richard
Whiting so well exemplified in No. 5
John Street.
Good Suggestions.
The Week commends to every town in
British Columbia tbe following suggestion from the Kamloops Standard:
If your shop front, residence or fence
is dull or dingy, order it painted.
If your awning is old, torn or faded,
get a new one.
If your sidewalk, fence or gale needs
repairing, repair it.
If your advertising sign is old and
faded, take it down and paint it.
Destroy the young weeds that are
starling on your property, and your
neighbor's  property.
Resolve never to throw paper in the
streets.
Take all dandelions out of your lawn
—they  spoil  the beauty of  it.
Bum all lhe rubbish possible; allow
no one in your house to throw it 011
the streets, alloys or vacant lots.
Promise not to spit on the sidewalk.
Organize a block improvement society, and permit no weeds to grow on
sidewalk area, or vacant properly ill
your block.

The Imperial Highway.
For many generations the Liverpool-
New York has been the popular trans-
Atlantic route. Floating palaces making
records which ranged from 5 to 6 days
have gathered in the cream of the traffic until il bad come to be loked on as
a foregone conclusion that Canadians
as well as Americans would sail from a
United States port and that Canada
would be content to cnotinuc her ten-
day service witb antiquated vessels. All
this has been altered in three short years
by the enterprise of the Allans and the
C. P. R. When the latter, under the
guidance of Mr. Arthur Piers bought
ou thc Elder-Dempster line they laid
thc foundation for an Atlantic service
that should be second to none and
stimulated the older firm lo the keenest]

magnificent achievements of the new j

* A Lady's Letter *
Y By  BABETTE. Y
Dear Madge:
Grey is the vogue, and the most popular combination is grey and white. Some
of the grey printed chiffons, which are
the latest for smart summer gowns, are
lovely, and parasols are made to match.
One exquisite gown in grey chiffon has
a border of violet wisteria round the
skirt, and with this was worn one of the
new short mauve taffeta shoulder capes
with long rounded sash ends, having
anembroidered silk edge, whilst thc grey
Italian straw hat chosen was adorned
with mauve to while shaded ostrich
plumes and "choux" of velvet. Another
attractive grey chiffon princess gown
over grey silk has a broad band of
Pompadour ribbon some 14 inches wide,
straight round the silk skirt half-way
up, which shows through the chiffon
over-skirt, and with this was worn a
Louis XVI coat of grey chine taffeta
trimmed with beautiful lace. Thc most
expensive hats arc entirely trimmed with
ostrich and paradise plumes in preference to flowers. Among the latter,
however, rose-colored peonies, roses,
and large ox-eyed daisies are quite the
"last crif." Kind and amiable American friends, whose gaily toned personalities are doubtless derived from the
cheerful vironments of their delightful
cities, keep me informed of all changes
of fashion with greater interest and
avidity than I could spare them over a
race-meeting, did I not realise that for
them such occasions arc merely an opportunity   of   exhibiting  clothes.
Take, for instance, a fair American
neighbor at a race-meeting. Her interest and solicitude centre chiefly on
the effect ber charming self and garments produce. The Canadian woman,
true to the inborn commercialism of
generations, is keenly intent on bringing
off her bets. "To win" and "For a
place" share her waking interests. "She
of Ireland," once more demonstrating
the eternal truth of heredity, is entirely
submerged in the mere merits of flying
horseflesh, which a sporting ancestry
has taught her lo appraise to a nicety—
and so the world wags on ils separate
ways, various exceedingly.
On all modern textile fabrics—whether silks, damasks, or brocades, tapestries or velvets, chintzes, cretons, or
printed linens—the skill of the artistic
designer is called into play. The most
popular designs at tbe present moment
are the French, particularly the Louis
XV and Louis VXT styles. These periods were splendidly fruitful of everything that was dainty and refined. The
modern designs 111 the French sayles
are characterized by the softness of their
coloring and tiie perfect taste with
which they are harmonized. Apropos,
some of thc brocades I have been viewing at Weiler Bros, arc positively
"dreams of loveliness." So much of
the artistic success of any scheme of
bouse decoration these days depends upon thc fabrics and hangings used that
their choice is an important matter.
Happily the range from which we can
selgct is practically unlimited, and we
can obtain a simple but artistic effect
while practising rigid economy or a
grandly decorative one launching out into very pardonable extravagance.
li the housewife were called upon to
give a verdict as to one of the most indispensable articles of gcnefnl Utility in
the household she would unhesitatingly
declare in tavor of "household ammonia." Its uses are many; primarily,
it softens the hardest water, and so
lightens the work of scrubbing as well
as reducing to a minimum the use of
soap. For washing clothes, from the
heaviest material to the most delicate
laces, it is invaluable, and a few drops
added to a basin of lukewarm or even
cold water will cleanse hair brushes to
perfection. As a preventive against and
cure tor mosquito and other insect
stings and bites ammonia is all-powerful;
indeed, the uses lo which this household
article can and should be put are so
many that it would require much more
space than I can spare to enumerate
them. A chemist to be highly recommended in purchasing this useful article
is Cyrus II. Howes, 98 Government
Street.
That culture is the keynote of Challoner & Mitchell's success may again be
realised in a glance through their choice
pearance, sufficiently strong in tint to be
distinctive:, and lends itself excellently
to the display of dark blue china. I saw
some new lamp shades the other day
built of brown bamboo and embroidered
china blue silk that 1 thought excessively smart. By the way, I have a little
hint to offer this week concerning the
cushions that are taken out into the
garden for the summer, lo be used in
hammocks and lawn chairs. It is an ex-
cellcnt plan 10 cover such cushions at
one side with thin American cloth, so
that when they are not being used they
may be turned with the American cloth
outwards, Should a shower of rain
then arrive, the cushions will not be
drenched through, because the American
cloth resists the dampness. Apropos,
Smith & Champion have a splendid line
of pillows, suitable for the garden use,
as well as those of softest down and
feathers for the bedroom.
Will il be believed that there are already   whispers    ot    the    existence   of
"motor-face" and also "motor-nerves,"
while il is within onr own personal experience that quite a few have given up
motoring for two apparently solid and
practical reasons: thc men because want
j of exercise engendered by motoring has
been found distinctly injurious to health,
and the women because their first fervors have cooled off by the havoc rendered to hair, complexion, and nerves.
It is a nutshell study of mankind to note
how crazes come and go, and how of
all the enthusiasts who rush to hug a
new idea, only a few utilitarians remain
faithful. Cycles, once the only joy of
Ihe "mondc qui s'amuse," have become
the recognized conveyance of the
masses. Motors, gradually descending
from the empyrean of folk worth twenty

VANCOUVER.
Regimental circles have devoted their
attention of late entirely to Dominion
Day events, to wit, thc big sweepstake
shoot at the ranges and the Marathon
road race. Both events were as eminently satisfactory as is anything the
1). C. 0. R. undertakes.
'The annual road race of the Sixlh
Regiment took place at Vancouver on
Monday evening, when 20 contestants
started irom lhe Hotel Vancouver to
run round the park, bring up at the hotel again," says the News-Advertiser.
"Elkins, who started second with a
handicap of six minutes, made thc best
time by arriving at the goal in 51 minutes. Chandler, the winner, finished
fresh and in good shape, though some
of those who came in later seemed
pretty well exhausted. Of the 20 men
who started only one dropped out,
which speaks well for the pluck and
stamina of the runners.
       "As a  result of the  race  the  silver
