THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 26, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
Every newspaper man knows
Itorial That that sometimes "copy" goes
nt Astray,   astray.   There was once an
engineer who firmly believed
the innate cussedness of inanimate mat-
he declared that tools and rivets,
i steel bars were possessed of the devil,
1 were able to exercise volition; and
it their custom was to display this pe-
iar tendency at tbe cost of the engineer,
me such spirit must possess copy at
les, otherwise harmless looking sheets of
Der carefully addressed to the Times
uld not find their way to the Colonist
)k. How they got there is another Btory.
sterday, under the heading of ' Scares
1 such tilings," one of these stray articles
md itself sandwiched in the editorial
mnns of the Colonist between "Eestless
dians" and "Territorial Forces." It
ist have felt strangely out of place in its
rel environment, for although a covert
ack upon the Conservative Party and
nservative principles is not absolutely
known in a Conservative paper, it is of
;h rare occurence as to attract attention.
ie article in question'is little less than*
ill-mannered sneer at the English
Dple, and an impudent attack on such
.tinguished statesmen as Mr. Ohamber-
n and Mr. Balfour. With that unction
lich characterizes many of his editorial
erances, the writer commences by thank-
f God that he is not as other men, "espe-
lly those who edit certain very promin-
t English papers," for which no doubt
) English readers of those papers are
routly thankful. He goes on to declare
it the recent so-called German war scare
subsiding, that it was hysterical. He
lies that the Asquith Ministry was re-
msible for it, and roundly declares that
; was the work of those who were seek-
* to bring the country back to the Con-
•vative fold"; it says that "their stock-
trade was a German war scare, a fantas-
Imperialism, and a crude fiscal policy,
[ming a trinity of absurdities." Con-
ering that the men who were foremost
declaring that there was a real danger
La German invasion were Lord Eoberts,
[d Mr. Balfour; considering that the
ef advocates of "the fantastic imperial-
" were Lord Eosebery, and Lord Mil-
r;    and  finally  considering that  the
ithor of the "crude Fiscal Policy" was
r. Chamberlain, it is indeed a spectacle '
r the Gods to contemplate this Ajax of
quill, who so summarily disposes of
f a dozen of the greatest living Brit-
lers, and their projects. But not con-
it with a general denunciation the article
pceeds to characterise Mr. Chamberlain
|d Mr. Balfour in terms which recall
e diatribes of Pro-Boer papers ten years
0. It says that Mr. Chamberlain's
nacea for all the ills the British peoples
9 heir to smelt of "political quackery."
mt Mr. Balfour, 'who has a discrimin-
ing mind, refused to be taken into camp
the Chamberlainites." Having thus
jposed of a Fiscal Policy which has
anged the whole complexion of British
•ade relations, and is now the foremost
ink in the Conservative platform, and
ving thus characterised one of the most
illiant statesmen England ever produced,
d the first Colonial Secretary to recog-
ze the' true value of Greater Britain bend the Seas and to sound the true Im-
rialist note, the article goes on to say
at "next came the Imperialistic fad,
lich people talked about, wrote about,
and grew enthusiastic about, but not a man
of them could define the word to save his
soul." Even Lord Milner falls short of
the standard of the writer of this extraordinary article, for while it is kind
enough to admit his "sanity," it declares
that "he didn't say anything that was especially new." The next stanza defines
the German war scare as on a par with the
frame of mind of the Three Tailors of
Tooley Street; in spite of the fact that its
genuineness was endorsed by the philosophic Mr. Balfour and the phlegmatic Mr.
Haldane. After all these pompous and
egotistic assumptions no one will be surprised to read that in the opinion of the
author "there are signs of returning sanity," that "the war scare has been allowed
to lapse into inocuous desuetude," and
with characteristic self-complacency he
concedes that "good may come out of all
this exaggeration and hysterics, but there
will inevitably be some ioss of self-respect
on the part of the English people and
some abatement of their dignity before the
world." Great gods and little fishes, and
this from a writer who foreswore his allegiance to the British throne for "thirty
pieces of silver," and who speaks of "those
of us who have been accustomed to note
the development of British public
opinion"!
It is not often now-a-daya
The Servant that a new play is of suffi-
In the House.   cient  importance  to  form
the subject of an editorial.
So far as plays are concerned it must be
admitted that we live in a degenerate
age, for with the single exception of Mr.
Barrie and the new dramatist Henry Somerset Maugham, the plays now being produced are of a most ephemeral and flimsy
character. In their day Sydney Grundy,
Henry Arthur Jones, and Arthur Pinero
have done first class work, but the fount
seems to have dried, and their successors
lag. Charles Eann Kennedy may yet
prove his claim to the title, for although
' The Servant In The House" is a play
with a purpose, and therefore liable to be
classed with those things to be avoided, it
gives promise of a great drama from a
new pen. For intensity of purpose, for
skill of constructions, for definite characterization, for admirable contrasts, for
picturesqueness and *or point it would be
difficult to match it by any production of
the last twenty years. Its weakness is
that it is too serious, and too heavy for
purposes of entertainment. It is a socialistic propaganda placed in the mouth of
an earthy drainman. It must be allright
because on Thursday night in the Victoria
Theatre the gallery cheered this son of
toil to the echo, but all the while you felt
that there was something wrong, and that
something was well expressed by the drain-
man himself who, under rebuke, asked:
"Can't a fellow sometimes say more than
he means," and therein lies the kernel of
truth in all socialist utterances. The play
is an indictment of the Church, for its indifference to the problems of the poor, and
for its indulgence in luxuries denied to
the workman. Looked at in the right light,
it is a fine criticism and is not one whit
stronger than the condemnation recently
uttered by a courageous divine in the pulpit at Trinity Church, Broadway. The
play is sweet and wholesome and its most
gratifying feature is the ultimate triumph
of a lovely Christian character as personified in tbe Bishop of Benares over the
rampant and illogical utterances of the
socialistic drainman. Kever was a great
truth more convincingly demonstrated.
The truth that Christianity has no real
competitor and that the world never fails
to recognize its genuine products. It would
have been a fitting climax to their important sessions, and to the fiftieth celebration of the establishment of the Anglican Church in Victoria, if the United
Clericus had attended the theatre on
Thursday night, and studied the splendid
lesson which "The Servant In The House"
afforded, and the moral which it inculcated. Charles Eann Kennedy has adopted the method of Dicksn in caricaturing
the spurious in order to emphasize the
genuine.
The successful termination
The Jordan 0f the negotiations between
River Scheme.  the  City and  the  British
Columbia Electric Eailway Company with respect to the
development of Jordan Eiver water
power is a matter of congratulation to all
concerned. The last obstacle has been removed and within a few days the by-law
will be ready for submission to the ratepayers. There should be a large and unanimous endorsation of an agreement which
will be an immense advantage to the City
and which will place it on a par with any
city in the Dominion in respect of cheap
light and power. Victoria sacrifices nothing in securing these benefits and pledges
itself only not to enter into competition.
This is a reasonable request and one without which it would be impossible to obtain
the necessary capital to carry out such
extensive works. It ie gratifying to know
that even one spoke is removed from the
wheels of progress; now for the next I
The Water
The water question in Victoria has reached a start-
Question, ling phase in its history,
After dilly dallying with
the question for years, and after securing
at the last session of the Legislature power
to expropriate on the fairest of terms, the
Council has continued to play with the
question until it has lost its opportunity.
A wealthy citizen has stepped in and
loaned the Esquimalt Waterworks Company $600,000 for the purpose of enabling
them to extend their pipe line to Oak
Bay, and to do other necessary works to
place them in a position to supply Victoria West and Oak Bay with all the water
they require. The effect of this will be to
cut the City of Victoria out of the market
for both places. This may not be an unmixed evil because it will leave all the
more water for Victoria proper, but it will
deprive it of an important source of
revenue after it has established a permanent and adequate system. The only way
out of the difficulty is a costly one. The
City can still expropriate under the provisions of the Act of last session, but it
will have to do so on the basis of the
added expenditure which is now being
made and an additional bonus. The Week
has no patience to discuss the question; it
has ventilated every phase of it for the
last four years; it has never varied in its
opinion that the best thing for the City
was to acquire the property of the Esquimalt Waterworks Company. Every day's
delay in doing this has made the situation
worse, and its. ultimate acquisition more
costly. The Week is still of opinion that
the more the matter is looked into the more
certain it is that the City will not go to
Sooke. The cost has been enormously
under-estimated by Mr. Adams; indeed, he
is so far astray on this matter as to have
seriously shaken public confidence in other
directions. There is only one thing for
the City to do and that should be done
without a moment's loss of time. It should
engage two or three of the most competent
engineers; let them carefully look into
the Sooke Lake, and Goldstream propositions, make careful estimates, based upon
practical knowledge, submit the figures,
and so enable an immediate decision to be
taken as to which scheme should be
adopted. Every day's delay means additional cost, to say nothing of the deplorable fact which cannot longer be denied
that the water supply now available is less
than half the amount required and less
than a fourth of what is used in other
cities.
The reputation of Mr.
Smith's Hall Arthur L. Adams as a Civil
Reservoir.        Engineer will be brought
into serious review by the
fiasco of Smith's Hill Eeservoir, which is
apt to become a permanent monument of
the false economy of American engineering. No one imagined until Mr. W. H.
Langley drew public attention to the fact,
that this costly piece of work has been
constructed upon unsound principles, and
that the City will be fortunate if it escapes
disaster in consequence. On the West side
in particular the reservoir is supported by
a deep embankment; this embankment is
piled on a sloping hill-side and consists of
hard pan, earth, gravel, and rubble, which
have been taken out of the excavation.
The inner lining of this is a wall of concrete smeared with half an inch or so of
cement. The concrete wall consists of
panels, which are joined by an asbestos
sheeting protected with tar and pitch. The
water tightness of the reservoir depends
entirely upon the concrete and cement wall.
The embankment will do nothing to resist
percolation or leakage, concrete and cement
are permeable under pressure; if leakage
takes place to any extent the embankment
will be weakened because every drop of
water which trickles through will enlarge
the passage. The universal practice among
English Engineers is to surround reservoirs with a band of puddled clay, and
the best practice in the States follow this
rule. Well puddled clay is the most impermeable of all material. Even in the
strata of the earth a band of clay will hold
up large bodies of water, and all miners
know its effect in this respect. Smith's
Hill Eeservoir is innocent of clay and the
safety of Victoria West and the section
running down towards Sayward's mill h
dependent on a concrete wall, which is not
and cannot be waterproof. Where does
the blame lie? Obviously with the engineer who allowed the specification to
puss; but the Council which failed to procure the necessary guidance in preparing
the specification cannot be held entirely
blameless. The Week forebears to say
more at the present stage but ventures to
think that the limit of public patience,
with its engineering department has about
been reached. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 36, 1909

X   The Drama. J
i^^-^*^-^^?ip#-^-%-%-*^i^f
It is about time that the Gardiner
Company realised just what Victoria
will stand for and what it will not
Stand for. For more than a month
the public and the press have been
very kind to Mr. Gardiner. The
public has been kind in suspending
its judgment, the press has been kind
in withholding its criticism. The former may be justified; it is doubtful
if the latter can. At any rate the
time has come to speak out and to
speak out plainly. Granted that the
Gardiner Stock Company has been
unfortunate, and has had difficulties
to contend with, it must be admitted
that the public is responsible for
for neither. With the single exception of the first week's programme
nothing has been offered worthy of
the acceptance of Victoria, or approaching its standard. The Week
did not hesitate to state at the very
heginning that the company would
never score a success unless it secured a leading lady. Miss Van
Buren was simply farcial in that capacity. The suggestion was not accepted, after a few weeks the lady
had to be dropped unceremoniously.
Whatever Mr. Darrell Standing may
be off the stage, he is an actor of
first class rank, and he alone redeemed
the Gardiner Company from mediocrity. When they lost him, they lost
all chance of success, unless they
could replace him promptly with an
actor of equal ability, and a leading
lady of the same class. Having done
neither the company has steadily declined, until it has fallen back on such
tommy rot as "Too Much Johnson,'
and "Dublin Assurance," neither of
which would draw iri a ten-cent show
house. Such offerings are an insult
to the intelligence of Victorians, and
a very poor testimony to Mr. Gardiner's knowledge of his business. As
he was not prepared to take the evidence of the box office, or the advice
of his friends, he cannot complain if
he has spoilt whatever chance he ever
had of making a hit in Victoria. His
company has gone the way of all
stock companies and for the same reason; they have entirely failed to
gauge the Victoria standard, which is
as far above that of the Gardiner
Stock Company as the plays of Henry
Arthur Jones, and Arthur Pinero are
above "Too Much Johnson," and
"Dublin Assurance"—even when the
actors know their lines.

Sporting Comment
The first match of the Minto Cup
series between New Westminster
and the Tecumsehs of Toronto will
be played in the Royal City this afternoon. This will be the second time
that the New Westminster team has
been called on to defend their title
this season and it is expected that
should the Tecumsehs lose their title
that other challenges will be hurled
at the defenders of the cup. The
reports that have been received from
the East indicate that the challengers
have a fast combination and will make
a determined effort to win the series.
The result of their match against
Cornwall shows that they have a
good team, the New Westminster
will not be quite as strong, owing
to the absence of their star centre
fielder, Pat Feeney, through sickness,
but despite these drawbacks I expect
New Westminster to win both games
although they will not have as easy
a time as they did against Regina.
The result of the lacrosse match at
Vancouver last Saturday shows that
the Terminal City Club has gathered
together a strong team and I expect
to see them take the measure of the
New Westminster Club before the
close of the season. Even on Saturday the Terminal players had a good
deal of the play and from a person
who witnessed the match they were
at one time playing six men against
eleven for New Westminster during
which time the latter scored two of
their goals. I hope, however, that the
officials who are appointed to take
charge of the remaining games make
the players leave the fighting until
after the game, as it only mars it
from a spectator's standpoint.
The Y. M. C. A. will hold their annual field meet this afternoon and,
judging from the number of entries,

it is evident that the meeting will
be a success.
Last Saturday Baylis of the J. B.
A. A. again demonstrated that there
are few runners in B. C. who can
beat him for a ten-mile run. In the
race last week he ran a carefully
planned race and although he finished
only one minute ahead of his nearest
competitor he was prepared for a
harder race and could have extended
himself further if he had been called
on to do so. Great credit is due
Brown of the Victoria West Club for
the game, showing he made and with
a little more experience he will give
the best of them a hard race.
The management committee of the
Vancouver Island Football Association which has had charge of the
games during the past season, should
receive a vote of censure from every
club on the Island for the disgraceful
manner in which they have allowed
the League to be carried on during
the past season. After expelling the
Victoria United team from the League
in order to give the Ladysmith team
a second chance to win the championship, their folly was further exemplified last Saturday, when the game advertised to take place at Esquimalt between Ladysmith and Nanaimo failed
to take place owing to the fact that
four players who were to have appeared in Nanaimo uniforms failed to
appear on time and the game was
claimed.by Ladysmith. What action
will now be taken by the association
is hard to say but the fact of the
matter is that it was a sad ending to
what should have been one of the
most successful seasons ever experienced by the soccer footballers.
The races at the Willows still continue to attract good crowds and after running three weeks there is very
little doubt but they will be continued
the full sixty days. The officials in
charge of the meeting are still maintaining the high standard of racing
they promised and in this they are
backed by the directors of the Country Club who will not stand for any
sign of crookedness. Already one
jockey has been given his walking
ticket and this has had a good effect
on the others. There is one little
matter, however, that I would like to
refer to and that is the excellent work
that is being done by Starter Weber.
Since his engagement here he has
more than made good and his efforts
are appreciated by the spectators. I
have been informed, however, that
the Directors intend to place Starter
Dwyer in charge on his arrival in this
city. I have been unable to have this
confirmed, but I would suggest for
the benefit of the Directors that they
leave good enough alone. Joe Weber,
by the excellent manner in which he
has done his work has made many
friends and those who have witnessed
his work at the track will have several things to say if he is displaced in
favour of Dwyer. If Dwyer thought
more of some other meeting than he
did of Victoria, let him stay at that
meeting; Weber thought enough of
Victoria to take a chance here and the
directors should show their appreciation of this by seeing that he is re-

For the benefit of the sporting
writers of this city who are supposed
to know all about racing I would like
to inform them that because they
make the statement that the Derby
run last Saturday was the first ever
run in Victoria it is not necessarily
so. I am aware that newcomers are
not in touch with everything going on
in the city, but they should listen to
people who have been here before
them and if they do make a mistake
be game enough to correct it. I am
not sure when the first Derby was run
in Victoria but I am informed that it
was some time in the early eighties.
However, there was a Derby run at

was won by the horse Ripper, owned

BEAUTY THAT LASTS.
Where is the woman who has not
the praiseworthy desire to enhance
her personal charms and preserve as
long as possible her delightful power
of enchantment, which lasts as long
as her beauty? The Oriental Cream,
prepared by Dr. T. Felix Gouraud, of
New York City, is a harmless preparation for preserving the delicacy
of the complexion and removing
blemishes. It is the favorite toilet
article of the leading professional
artists, who owe so much of their
popularity to their personal charms.
Scarcely a star dressing room in the
land is without Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, which is the most wholesome
and perfect beautifier known. Druggists will supply you. No. 8.

WELCOME HOME.
By BOHEMIAN.
In the zenith of his fame John
Bright was called the "Tribune of the
People," but discriminating judges
often spoke of him as the "silver-
tongued orator." Since his day no
Englishman has so well deserved the
title as Lord Rosebery. In many respects he presents an anti-podal contrast to John Bright. The former
was a man of the people, a born
democrat, almost a Chartist, and in
any event one of the most valiant
fighters of modern times for increasing the privileges of the masses, and
curtailing the prerogatives of the
classes. Lord Rosebery is an aristocrat without one drop of democratic
blood in his veins and yet no peer
has propounded more liberal views,
or has showed a juster conception of
the rights of all classes.
The history of England would have
unfolded along very different lines but
- for that inherent weakness which prevented Lord Rosebery from retaining
the sceptre which was placed in his
hands when the great Liberal leader,
Mr. Gladstone, laid it down. Lord
Rosebery towered so high above his
fellows that it requires a great deal
more than his aristocratic birth to
explain away the circumstances which
led to his speedy dethronement. But
that is another story, the true inwardness of which will not be revealed until several generations have passed.
Meanwhile Lord Rosebery has occupied an unique position in the country
and the Empire. He correctly foretold his future when in that memorable farewell speech he relegated
himself to "the lonely furrow."
Life for him had no unfulfilled ambitions which could hereafter be realized, and yet in this particular what
a remarkable resemblance he furnished to the case of the Duke of Devonshire of whom the same statement
was true, but in how different a sense.
The Duke was never brilliant, was always shy and retiring, and ye,t his
very personality forced him into the
foremost positions, and found him at
the last the one man in England to
whom all men turned for guidance
and a sane judgment. The Duke of
Devonshire could always have had
and have held a premier position.
Lord Rosebery reached but could not
retain it. And yet today there is no
man in England who is more trusted,
or whose word on Imperial affairs
carries greater weight. The independence and isolation of his position
removes him almost entirely from the
sphere of political influence, and possessing as he has always done the gift
of prophecy, his utterances have a
special interest for those who are eagerly scanning the horizon in order
that they may read aright the signs
of the times.
In his splendid address to the Press
Conference, Lord Rosebery has
stripped the subject of Imperialism of
all its trappings, and has reduced it
to a few simple elements. He told
his hearers that he looked upon them
as "home comers" who, representing
the new and flourishing outposts of
the Empire, still turned to the true
Mecca of every British subject with
affection and pride. He emphasized
the truth that they belonged to the
greatest Empire the world had ever
seen, that it was their Empire, theirs
to inherit and also theirs to maintain.
His message to the Conference was
one which he bade them take back
to their own country, that England is
right at heart, that she knows no failing or weakness, but that she rejoices
in renewing her youth in her giant do
minions beyond the seas. "For her
own salvation she must look to herself, and failing that, she must look
to you." He charged every delegate
to become a missionary, and how aptly was the title chosen. We can all
remember how in the early days the
missionaries of the Cross came home
with the story of their sufferings and
privations, but also with the story of
their victories. We have all been
taught to believe and have believed
that "the blood of the martyrs is the
seed of the Church."
Lord Rosebery has adapted the simile, and now the missionary idea
which seizes the imagination and fills
the mind is that of the missionary of
the Empire, whose faith is revivified
at the shrine of his fathers which
perhaps he has visited for the first
time, and from which he goes to
preach, not an evangel of religion, but
of Empire. In a brilliant peroration
Lord Rosebery identified the children
with the home of their fathers. "Welcome home to the home of your language, your liberties, and your race.
Welcome home to the source of your
parliaments, your free institutions and
of this immeasurable Empire. Welcome home to the supreme head of
all these dominions—your sovereign
and mine, who is not merely the -King
of Great Britain, but the King of
Hearts. Welcome home to this and
anything besides that we in all
brotherhood and affection can offer
you."
And who shall say that Lord Rose-
bery's welcome, voicing that of the
Mother Country, has not sounded the
new note of Imperialism, that of
brotherhood and equality, and who
shall say that it will not go ringing
down the corridors of time as the
message of the twentieth century to
a recreated and consolidated Empire.

Why Not a Gas Range
For A Wedding Gift ?
No gift so well represents your good judgment. It would certainly be a daily reminder of your
good taste and liberality. An up-to-date cooking apparatus would make an unusually welcome
present to many Victorian brides. A Gas Range would be an ideal gift from parent to daughter
upon her marriage.
We want ladies who think a Gas Range is a
pretty good thing, but that it cannot be used for
all cooking purposes to consider this fact: A
Gas Range will do anything that a coal range will
do and most things better. It will broil or bake
far better than either coal or wood. You can
prepare a full coarse dinner or make a cup of tea
or toast in a minute with gas. No good housekeeper would be without a gas range or stove,
because heat can be regulated to a nicety, her
fuel is always ready with a tap-turn and her
expenses lessened.
We want every woman who cooks with a coal
or wood stove to try cooking with gas. They
will then realize why some women like to cook
and bake; it is such a real pleasure to cook with
gas. No dust, no 'dirt, no kindling to chop, no
coal to carry in or ashes to carry out and much
more time for reading, recreation, making calls,
etc. We like to demonstrate the safeness, the
economy, the efficiency, and the cleanliness of
gas for all cooking purposes.
We cordially invite you to see the new Gas Ranges and Gas Stoves in our Showrooms.   Prices
are popular.   Easy payments' if you wish.
VICTORIA GAS COMFY

Cor. Fort and Langley Streets, Victoria, B. C.
-
At The Street   f
Corner 1
Victoria has been making a little
history this week, which at any rate
is better than doing nothing. In the
first place the Water Commissioner
managed to get his pipes connected
on Sunday and for the first time to
turn a little of the very scarce fluid
into Smith's Hill reservoir. By the
irony of fate he calls this "surplus
water," but that is only one of his
little jokes on which the recording
angel has let fall a tear and blotted
out its iniquity. I took a stroll on
Sunday afternoon to the celebrated
resservoir, incited thereto by the admonitory letter of W. H. Langley,
and anxious to find out for myself
whether there was any real danger
that the City would be submerged
through thc breaking of the dam, I
had to come away with my doubt unresolved, but I do make bold to say,
and am prepared to maintain it anywhere that a great mistake has been
made, and that the engineers responsible for the specification have departed from the universal English
custom, which is, to rely upon a band
of well puddled clay to prevent leakage. There is no exception to this
rule in the Old Country. Whether it
be a reservoir or a canal, clay is used
and always specified. Cement is never
used except for the sake or cleanliness. Now at Smith's reservoir there
is no clay, and no pretence of having
used any. It does not figure in the
specification, and therefore the engineer in charge can truly say that
the work has been carried out according to specification, but the dump
which forms the embankment presents
no protection against leakage and
once water begins to leak there is no
security. I sincerely hope that Smith's
Hill reservoir will never lead to a
disaster; if it does, the fault will rest
with those who allowed the specifications to go through which violated
the recognized custom of English
engineers. American engineers have
proved an expensive luxury to Canada, and it begins to look as if Mr.
Arthur L. Adams is no exception to
the rule.
* *     *
The City Council has been moving
a little this week. It has decided, in
order to expedite local improvement
work, to let out a portion of it by
contract. Under all the circumstances
I believe this is a wise decision, and
I do not share the views expressed
at the labour meeting on Wednesday
night that the contract system necessarily means inferior workmanship,
and the employment of alien workmen. I am in favour of a clause
which would make it illegal for a
contractor to use Oriental labour, and
this should be a sufficient protection
to the white man. As to the quality
of the work, that depends entirely ou
competent supervision and if this is
exercised there is no reason why the
men who work for contractors should
not give as good value as the men
who work for the city, Unfortunately I have no confidence in our engineering department as at present
constituted and I believe we shall get
bad work by any method until more
competent inspectors are employed,
and that appears to be hopeless until
the Council realizes what the public
has long ago grasped.
* *    *
I want to put in another plea for
the boulevards. If there is any excuse for their present neglected condition I for one should like to know
what it is. Possibly the fact that
the Parks Board has been out of business for a month may have something
to do with it, but now that the Board
is reconstituted there should not be
a day's delay in weeding, cutting, and
watering; there should also be an
organized attempt to rid the streets
of obnoxious weeds and grasses. The
farce of constructing beautiful boulevards, and leaving them untended is
on a par with the general policy of
the Victoria City Council, into which
it seems impossible to hammer even
a modicom of sense.
**.-♦*•*
A fortnight has passed since we
were told that the Council and the
B. C. E. R. had finally come to terms
on the subject of the Jordan River
power scheme; we are now told that
within a few days total agreement
may be announced. I hope this will
prove true, as I remarked once before
when.dealing with this subject, a few
days more or less makes little difference, but the public would heave a
sigh of relief if something were really
signed, sealed and delivered.

The races have caught on, and if
those people who are content to take
their own enjoyment in a different
form will only exercise a little toleration for others who find horse racing
enjoyable, and exhilarating, the summer season will be a successful and
memorable one. For the first time
Victoria has got out of the rut. The
directors of the Country Club and the
local police authorities have shown
that they can control the situation.
They have deported all undesirables,
they have made the race track as respectable as any gathering of a similar
number of people could possibly be,
and they have furnished sport of the
finest kind, with none of. the drawbacks, which finally rendered it unpopular in the States. It is simply
another illustration of the difference
between English and American
methods of handling sport. In the
Old Country people go to the races
because the love of the horse runs in
the veins of every Englishman, and
when he sees a dozen beauties extended at full gallop on the turf he
forgets all his troubles and experiences the very acme of delight. This
is the kind of sport we are having
in Victoria. The Tourist Society used
to boast that this city was a little bit
of England on the Pacific; it never
more justly earned the title than by
giving the present splendid series rl
