S OTHERS SEE US—In its issue
of July 20th The Week ventured a
little   criticism   of   the   Victoria
Ird of Trade, describing it as "in many
lects  an  admirable, but admittedly a
jilized institution, having a few active
(enterprising members, but in the main
jsed to activity and energy, and work-
3ff what little vitality it has in volum-
reports ancl pious resolutions."   For
.The Week was criticized by several
■ig  business   men   in   the   city,   who
ljht that such an attitude was calcu-
,to bring discredit upon Victoria and
ver our institutions in the estimate of
ijers.   The Week received its vindica-
much more quickly and much more
|vely than it expected, for in the Col-
}f yesterday Mr. G. T. Somers, Pre-
of the Toronto  Board of Trade,
lent of the Sterling Bank of Canada

The Colonist thought so well of this
lent of Mr. Somers' that it wrote a
olumn editorial on the subject, and
promised to "look into the matter
ee if he may not be right."   Surely
Ihing will now be clone about it.   All
|Week wishes to add  is that  while
is a visitor like Mr. Somers could
be expected to offer detailed criti-
f the Board, it is perfectly clear to
[i-lookers tliat he has promptly disci  its  great  weakness.    From per-
experience The Week would supple-
his remarks ancl say that there must

enting the business wealth of the city,
it is almost impossible to get a quorum
end its meetings.   That "something"

oquacious  members   who   invariably

,of attempting to meet quarterly, it

int   touch   with   its   work.   In   the
k referred to The Week pointed out
il   matters   of   extreme   importance
any "live" Board of Trade would

liisible conduct of Mr. H. S. Patter-
f the Winnipeg Grain Exchange who
down Victoria as a grain shipping
after representing to the Board of
that it was an ideal port.   Then noth-
it one of the so-called "pious resolu-
has resulted from the suggestion of
T. Elliott that if Victoria wanted
elevators it should start in to build
No wonder that Mr. Somers says in
terview that he did not know a city
,vhich Providence had clone so much
nan so little."    These remarks are
in  all  kindness  ancl  voice  public
n of the Board of Trade.   In the late
ent, Mr. H. G. Wilson, and the new
ent, Mr. J. J. Shallcross, the Board
en served by two of the ablest and
^energetic business men in Victoria,
,ey will not be able to achieve their
ind to give Victoria the position to
it is entitled unless they thoroughly
ianize what is undoubtedly a fossil-
Imcl bids fair to become a moribund,
tion.
A WHITE CANADA—On Thursday
last a deputation of working-men
paid a visit to The Week office, to
complain that they had been discharged
from city employment; that they represented two gangs who had been employed
on grading sidewalks; that they were unable to get work, and that they dreaded
the approach of next winter because they
saw no prospect before them. They did
not complain that the sidewalk grading had
come to an end, but they did think that
being Britishers they might have been put
to other work, especially as most of them
were married men with wives ancl families
to support. The Week has seen this
trouble coming for a long time. There are
hundreds of labouring men in Victoria who
should not be here. It is not in a spirit
of unfair discrimination but for the protection of the community ancl of working-
men of our own race that The Week points
out that many of these belong to races
which have no real respect for our laws
and which are naturally inclined, not only
to make trouble wherever they go, but to
keep the police busy. Their presence was
not felt so much while there was plenty of
work for all, but in the "fall" the bulk of
the city work will have been finished, and
we shall have on our hands hundreds of
men brought here by American contractors,
or by the Canadian agents of American
contractors, men who have no claim on us
and who, because they are so numerous ancl
influential will oust our own men from
most of the jobs that will be available during the winter months. It may be an unpopular thing to say, but The Week does
say after sober thought that there will be
more privation this winter than has ever
been known here before. This might have
been prevented if we had more carefully
guarded our portals; if some of our labour
organizations had not been delivered over
to Socialists and professional agitators, and
if the authorities had had the wisdom ancl
the courage to turn back at the landing-
stage every known member of the I. W. W.
who sought admission to Victoria. It is too
late now to shut the door, but The Week-
appeals to the Mayor and Council to exercise some authority in this matter and
to insist that such work as is available shall
be given to men of our own race and that
they shall not be deposed to make room for
Dagos, Slavs and others who at present
seem to be most in favour ancl to enjoy a
monopoly of whatever work is available.
In urging the Mayor ancl Council to exercise tlieir authority in this matter, The
Week is not unmindful of thc fact that the
policy of the Council has been very clearly
laid clown and instructions given to the
various Departments that workmen of British origin should have a preference. All it
asks is that this very wise policy shall be
enforced to the fullest possible extent and
also that pressure shall be brought to bear
upon contractors to the same end. The
situation furnishes a grave comment on the
unwisdom of letting any considerable
amount of city work by contract and
thereby losing direct control of labour employment.
UNFAIR DISCRIMINATION—
There is an old proverb which runs
"What's sauce for the goose is
sauce for the gander." Like many proverbs, this is not a truth, but a euphemism.
In the Victoria press of July 29th is a
lengthy and detailed account of a raid made
by several detectives under Sergeant
O'Leary on a house at 539 Dunedin Street.
The raid took place on Saturday night last
ancl three young men and two women were
arrested ancl subsequently charged at the
City Police Station with being inmates of
a disorderly house. The woman who kept
the house was fined $50; the woman who
was an inmate was fined $25, ancl the newspaper   report   laconically   remarks,   "The
names of the young men were not called,
despite an undertaking by the Police Commissioners to the Citizens' League that in
every instance of the kind all inmates were
to be charged ancl prosecuted." The Week-
does not hesitate to say that the persons
responsible for compounding this felony.
and it is a felony, should be made to
answer for it. There is no sense of justice
or fair play, and it is difficult to see how
the authorities can expect to secure the respect of the public and to exert any influence over law-breakers, when they exercise
such unjust discrimination. The subject is
a big one and much might be said on it,
but when all is said ancl clone, the persons
who authorized the police to allow the men
to go and to prosequte the unfortunate
women only were themselves guilty of
breaking the law which it is their duty to
administer. The fact that a promise had
been made to the Citizens' League has nothing to do with the matter. It may show
up their conduct in a worse light, and it
may also illustrate the extreme difficulty of
securing any full ancl just enforcement of
the law against prostitution, but that is all.
Unless The Week is misinformed, more
will be heard of this matter. It is sadly
at variance with what the public had a right
to expect, ancl is too serious to be allowed
to pass. It is not a little significant that
the very next day a man was prosecuted
for being a frequenter of a disorderly
house, convicted ancl fined. He also enjoyed the added distinction of having his
name published. But then he was a
stranger, so they ran him in.
LAWN TENNIS—Victoria has had a
plethora of lawn tennis during the
present week. It has entertained
more than a hundred expert players who
have competed in the North Pacific Coast
and the British Columbia Championship
series. The weather has been favourable;
the public appreciative, and the beautiful
grounds on the Cadboro Bay Road have
presented a scene of activity, brightness and
colour which it would be hard to match in
any other city in the Dominion. Nine
courts were constantly in use, and the Committee managed the Tournament so well
that there was no friction ancl no delay.
A fair general comment on the festival is
that tennis is becoming more popular here
every year; that the number of players
ancl spectators is increasing, and that the
spacious grounds whicii havc recently been
enlarged by three courts, will soon prove
too small for tournament purposes. Of the
quality of the play much might be said.
Its all-round excellence shows a inarked
advance on that of any previous tournament. As a rule there have been three or
four star players and then a wide gap.
This year there have been ten or a dozen
men nearly top-notchers, and it would bc
impossible even now to place them in order
of merit with any degree of posiliveness.
Never has there been a better single played
in Victoria than the Final in the International Championship between Schwengers
ancl Tyler. The popular American player
extended the champion to the full limit and
at one stage had the match entirely at his
mercy with an easy stroke to play. No
better Doubles have ever been seen in
British Columbia than those in which Evans
and Jukes of Vancouver ancl Fottrell ancl
Johnson of San Francisco figured, while
Tyler and Brain were only a little behind
them. The opening sett of the Semi-final
between Tyler and Brain and Fottrell and
Johnson, in which the games ran 13—15,
was one of the most brilliant and closest
competitions imaginable. The other first-
class players such as Captain Foulkes,
Wickersham, Fulton, Cardinal and Stone,
added greatly to the interest. Indeed, not
a few good judges thought that if Stone
had been in condition, hc would have been
equal to any player on the courts, with thc
possible exception of the two champions.
While there was a large number of first
class lady players, it could hardly be said
that there were any stars. Miss May Sutton was available and would have imparted
an element of interest, but, unless she could
have been accompanied by a Californian
player of the same calibre, the Committee
would not have been justified in concluding arrangements, and their decision tinder
the circumstances was generally applauded.
On the whole the Tournament must be regarded as an unqualified success, reflecting
the highest possible credit on the Committee
. of Management and especially on the courteous ancl efficient Secretary.
A STORY WITHOUT COMMENT
—A few clays ago a young woman
about twenty years of age, who had
been under medical treatment for some
time developed a mild form of insanity and
her removal to New Westminster was recommended by the doctor. She was perfectly harmless, very gentle ancl had
evinced no indications of violence; indeed,
her dementia was hardly observable. It was
explained to her that she was going to the
Mainland for a visit, accompanied by her
nurse. Arrangements were made with the
authorities. A little later the Police Patrol ! drove up to the house; the patient
was driven to the police station ! and a
man. properly described as a "violent
lunatic," in charge of two policemen was
placed beside her in the same patrol. Together they were driven to the clock, when
it was discovered that a mistake had been
made as to the time of sailing ancl the sensitive woman ancl the violent lunatic were
driven back to the police station. During
the whole of the journey to and from the
dock the violent lunatic was howling and
swearing and had to be restrained by physical force. From the police station the
poor woman was driven back to her home
and later on when the correct time for the
sailing of the boat had been ascertained a
motor-car was sent for her. On arriving
at home the woman who had been as nearly
sane as possible, and who had no idea that
she was to be taken to an asylum, was in a
state of utter prostration and was with
difficulty saved from a series of fits. This
all happened in Victoria, the Capital City
of British Columbia, in thc year of grace
1912, but nothing has been said about it in
the daily press.
THE B. C. NAVY LEAGUE—At a
representative meeting held in Victoria on Tuesday night the various
branches of the Navy League iu liiilish
Columbia were federated into one central
organization. This was the logical outcome
of the work carried on by the branches during the last seven years. Face to face with
Imperial problems thc matter of a general
policy had to bc dealt with, and this will
constitute the chief responsibility of the
new federation. The branches will maintain their independence in all local matters.
It was fitting that Mr. Clive Phillipps
Wolley, who has attained world-wide distinction for his services in connection with
the Navy League Movement and who has
just received the Distinguished Service
Decoration from the parent organization
in London, should have been appointed the
first President; it was a very proper recognition of invaluable and disinterested services. The new organization will have to
deal promptly with matters of importance,
the" first being thc disposition of the
"Egeria." Government aid is to be sought
ancl will no doubt be afforded, and in a
short time we may hope to hear that the
nucleus of a real Canadian Navy has been
formed in British Columbia. It may be
but a small beginning; it will, however, be
a profitable one.
(Continued on Payc  12) THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1912
I am very pleased to see that my
remarks about the necessity for a
public clock and my comments on the
neglected condition of the old Challoner & Mitchell clock have already
borne fruit, and our enterprising
townsman, Mr. W. H. Wilkerson, has
obtained permission from the Council
to erect a standard and clock on the
sidewalk opposite his store. I am
sure that in a modest way this will
be one of the most appreciated boons
ever conferred upon the city. The old
clock was a land-mark, to which the
eyes of thousands of people were
turned every day, and many of them
many times a day. Few of us think
of a clock as anything but as an indicator of time; we are either too
busy or too unimaginative to reflect
on the extent to which our actions
are regulated by a reference to the
clock face. It is the clock which announces that the time is approaching
or has arrived when that important
business engagement is due; when
that big real estate deal is to be put
through; when that boat will arrive
with a friend on board, or when I am
due at the Empress Palm Room for
an afternoon rehdez-vous and a cup of
tea. My heart fails me when I think
of the anxious ones who have waited
with sinking heart for the "laggard"
all because Challoner & Mitchell's
clock no longer points the way. This
will be remedied, to the great benefit
of the community, and to the rehabilitation of many reputations. So I for
otie, will congratulate Mr. Wilkerson
on realizing an opportunity to become
a public benefactor in the most practical and gratifying manner.

The    English    newspapers    know
what the "silly season" is.   It comes
round once a year, when there is a
lull  in general  newspaper news and
elderly   gentleman    of   leisure,   and
sometimes elderly ladies, write about
big   gooseberries,   sea   serpents,   the
best age at which to marry, how to
make domestic  service  popular,  and
other kindred subjects of an impracticable nature.    I did not know that
we  had a "silly season"  in  Canada,
but judging from the tenor of some
of the correspondence which has been
finding its way into the Victoria and
Vancouver papers recently, 1 am beginning to think that the Dominion
is in the fashion.   The subject which
seems to vex some of our prudish parents and incurious spinsters is that of
mixed bathing and abbreviated bathing dresses.   One of the former complains that he  cannot  pick his  way
he describes as being too scanty  in
the quantity   of   material   used and
which fit all too soon.   A dear spinster  who retired  to  the  solitude  of
Cordova Bay for the purpose of knitting and    crotchcting,    strongly objects to an involuntary study of thc
lord of    creation    in    a  suit    which
shrinks when  it  is  wet.    This  complaint    suggests    several    questions.
First of all, why did the spinster select one of the few popular bathing-
places to do her daily stunt?    As a
rule when people go to a picture gallery, they expect to see pictures, and
most   people   who   go   to   a   bathing
place expect    to see    bathers.    The
complaining spinster of Cordova Bay
does not say just how much bather
she is willing to see without register
ing a complaint, but she does demand
that all male bathers shall wear "unshrinkable" bathing suits.    With the
proverbial inconsequence and lack of
logic, for whicii her sex is so famous
she does not tell the poor male bather
where  he  can  procure  a  suit  which
will not shrink when wet, and which
will not clin^ to him when he emerges
from the sea.   "Spinster" looks at one
side  of  the  question  only;   she. expresses   no   sympathy   for   the   poor
sailor man who,    according   to the
newspaper stories of the season about
which we are writing, has many many
a time been compelled to gaze upon
a   mermaid,   even   less   scantily   clad
than the male bathers of Cordova
Bay. Really I am afraid there is no
expectation of the poor bather being
able to procure his non-shrinkable
suit, unless "Spinster" is willing to
knit one, and even then to be satisfactory it would have to be a "union"
suit.

Mrs. Stevens has my sympathy, and
I think will secure the sympathy of
all my readers when they read the
paragraph at the foot of this article
which I cut from the Colonist of
July 30th. There is a subtle humour
about the statement which forbids
comment; at any rate, my sense of
delicacy forbids me to comment on
the genealogy of the Somas Queen."
Beyond asking my readers to scan
the account of an interesting public
ceremony, I can only say that I would
not have expected Mrs. Stevens to
"slide down the ways into the water"
in any other than a "graceful" manner. It is always customary to select ladies for these launching ceremonies, who can slide down the ways
"gracefully." It is the first consideration, and therefore it would appear
to Lounger that the statement is
quite superfluous. However, if I
have in any way failed to apprehend
all the details of an interesting ceremony, I am willing to be corrected by
the very able and popular editor
of the Marine Department of the
Colonist.
"The new passenger yacht, built in
"the Port Alberni ship yards for Wil-
"liam Stevens, was launched at high
"water, 4.30 p.m. on Saturday last.
"It was christened the Somas Queen,
"by Mrs. Stevens, who broke a bottle
"of wine over the stem, and slid
"gracefully down the ways into the
"water."

THE ALLEN PLAYERS
The offering of the Allen Players
at the Victoria Theatre this week is
a typical American comedy entitled
"The Man from Mexico." Its chief
merit ,is that it is a laugh-maker, unless it be a greater merit that it exactly suits the public. It has been
played every night this week to increasing numbers of people, and while
the play calls for no special comment,
it is gratifying to be able to record
the continued success of such a good
all-round company, and especially to
note that they are able to play their
recent offerings a full week, which is
in every way much better than to attempt two plays a week. The new
arrangement saves a lot of hard work
for the members of the company in
double rehearsals and is justified by
their continued and increasing success.

ewspapcr story in picture was

tic   during   the   middle   of   the
current week, and although they were
not as clear and sharp as many, their
interest was undeniable. Nothing illustrates the value of the modern picture machine than tlie facility with
which pictures of more than national
importance are so quickly shown to
millions of persons who are thus enabled to take that personal interest
whicii mere reading can never give.
The Romano's Theatre
Some very excellent Pathe films
dealing with events in England were
among the most interesting of the
pictures shown at Romano's this
week. It is always a treat when these
"Daily Graphics" deal with subjects
that are British and not American,
and this week they were most decidedly chosen from among the former class. In addition to these there
have been a variety of good films
shown and another word of praise in
favour of Romano's orchestra will not
come amiss.
The Allen Players
Xcxt week the Allen Players will
offer for the appreciation of patrons
of the stock company that absorbing-
play, "The Road to Yesterday," being a drama built on the subject of
re-incarnation. There are a number
of people in the cast who have direct
antipathies for each other, and being
students of the previous life theory,
have a conviction of having lived on
the earth before. The novelty and
interest attaching to the play are exceptional, and it was a subject of
much debate when first produced in
England. The play opens in 1903.
and the heroine has a wish to go
back 300 years. Her wish is instantly
granted and she sees the characters
in the play of 1903 as they were in
1603, with the primitive speech and
habits of that time.
Princess Theatre
"Charley's Aunt" has played to capacity houses all this week. It is one
of the biggest successes the company
has ever put on, being one big laugh
from start to finish, with not one dull
spot in the whole production. Mr.
Howard Foster in the role of "Aunt"
was exceptionally clever—and played
the part extremely well—without
burlesquing or overdoing. Mr. Dave
Williams as old Spettigue was also
very funny*—and won a great many
laughs. The setting of the first act
deserves especial mention, as it was
admirably done.
Next week this company will present the beautiful comedy drama,
"Thorns and Orange Blossoms."
Dramatised from Bertha M. Clay's
novel, Mr. Williams has tried for several weeks to procure this play, and
has at last been successful, and he
feels positive that it will prove a success with the patrons of the  house.
Business Changes Hands
A business change has just taken
place on Government Street. For
some few years past the Standard
Stationery Company, under the management and ownership of the
Messrs. Huxtable Bros. & Knott, has
held a commanding position amongst
the stationery stores in Victoria, and
it is this business that has just
changed hands. The new partners,
Messrs. Fullbrook and Sayers, will
conduct the busiuess at the same premises, 1220 Government Street, under the style and title of the Full-
brook-Sayers Stationery Company.
Mr. A. E. Sayers, the managing
partner, in a conversation with a representative of The Week, stated that
it is the intention of the new firm
to make a specialty of general stationery; especially that applicable to
business use. This does not mean to
say that the fancy goods which form
so necessary an adjunct to thc
modern stationer's store will be neglected, but it does mean that Stationery (with a capital "S") will come
first, and fancy goods second. An
other feature which will be emphasized by the new firm is the matter
of prompt delivery, particularly in the
matter of phone orders, as it is the
aim of Messrs. Fullbrook and Sayers
to make their delivery service to their
patrons satisfactory and reliable. A
third specialty is to be made of the
magazine business. Up to the present the stationers of the Capital
City have been rather inclined to allow this important branch of their
business to be usurped by the smaller
news dealers, but the Fullbrook-
Sayers Company intend to make a
bold bid for the trade, and, having
obtained it, to retain it.
Of the new partners, Mr. A. E.
Sayers is already well-known to Victorians, having been associated with
the Standard Stationery Co. for the
past two years. Mr. Fullbrook,
though a comparative stranger in Victoria, has been connected with many
successful business ventures in Eastern Canada and the Middle West.
One of the endeavours of the new
firm will be to live strictly up to its
promises. A promise made may be
considered as a promise kept.
A very large stock of first-class
goods is already on order for the
Fullbrook-Sayers Co., which, when
added to that taken over from the
Standard Stationery Co. will fully
qualify the firm to take its place
amongst the leading stationers of the
City.
The Week has much pleasure in recommending its readers to call in and
inspect the newly stocked premises at
1220 Government Street and has no
hesitation in prophesying that the
name of the Fullbrook-Sayers Co.
will stand for all that is best and
prompt in the stationery business.

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
The "Super-
Woman"
By Bohemian
Good short stories are scarce, far
scarcer than goocl novels. The reasons for this are not far to seek, but
that is another story.
It is a moot point whether the art
of short story writing is not a lost
art. At any rate, I can only recall
two men who have achieved any eminence in this department during the
last twenty years, Conan Doyle and
Quiller Couch. Possibly some people would wish to include Jack London, whose lurid sensational sketches
are followed with avidity by thousands of readers. I doubt, however,
whether posterity will accord him a
place alongside the other two I have
mentioned. Indeed, whether rightly
or wrongly, I claim that "Q." is in a
class by himself, and that no short
story quite equal to "The Splendid
Spur" has ever been written.
All this is by way of preface, and
it is to be hoped that the expectations
of my readers have not been raised to
•the point of expecting a new short
story as good as "The Splendid Spur,"
There is, however, one of high
merit and exceptional interest in "The
Smart Set" magazine for August. It
is entitled "The Super-Woman," and
is from the pen of Miriam Michel-
son. It is somewhat fantastic in plot,
on a bed of boughs in a rude hut, in
is merely a skeleton ou which to
drape a series of incidents, and
around which to develop a few philosophical ideas.
Thc hero is a young American
multi-millionaire, the son of the
richest man in the world. He falls
overboard in mid-Atlantic, and after
being buffeted and battered into unconsciousness, passes into a state of
oblivion, from wliieh he awakens a
week later to find himself stretched
on a bed of boughs in a rude but, in
a strange land, and surrounded by
strange faces. He is nursed by a
young woman. Gurtha, who in a barbaric sense might well be described
as a
"Daughter of the Gods, divinely tall,
And most divinely fair."
Barefooted, barelegged, with her
beautiful blonde hair worn in a single
long plait, with blue eyes deepened
to violet under emotion, with a firm,
strong hand and a dexterous touch,
Gurtha moved about the hut ministering to every need of the sick so
joumer. In a state of semi-conscious
ness, he tosses on his rude bed for
several weeks. His condition becomes more critical.
The Super-woman has him placed
in a litter, carried to a boiling geyser,
and buried up to the chin in hot mud.
Not a word is spoken, for the simple
reason that neither understands each
other's language. He anticipates a
quiet and decorous "putting away" of
a hopeless incurable. To his surprise
he finds that the object is not
"quietus," but "cure."
In due course a cure is effected.
Then our American discovers something of the true character of the
remarkable country into which a
strange fate has flung him. It is a
couutry of primitive simplicity and
primitive ideas. Everyone works.
There is no wealth, no money, no
currency. There are few women and
many men. This makes every woman
a super-woman. The children are
named after, and belong to, the
mothers. A council of women make
all the laws, and rule the country
to the minutest detail. The men
shoot, fish, dig, and  forage  for the
community. The women weave the*
only garment which is worn by men
and women alike a single tunic,
draped over the whole figure, and
fastened with a clasp.
The American is hauled up before
the governing council of women, presided over by Gurtha's mother. An
interesting interview takes place, in
which he is made to feel his utter
insignificance, and in which the pri
mitive ideas of a primitive commun
ity are very finely and effectively contrasted with the customs of an effete
civilization in which the lords of
creation "toil not. neither do they
spin."
This is the really interesting part
of thc story, and is a fine' satire on
some latter-day philosophies which
some mothers of the race havc espoused.
Then in rapid succession follow the
logical and inevitable incidents of
such a story. The hero marries Gurtha. They are supremely happy.
They have a little girl, to the great
joy of the community it is not a boy.
The super-woman names her Ninith
Her father idolises her. She is his
inseparable companion. At three
years of age she can swim like a fish
One day he takes her out for a long
swim. They spend a glorious day in
the water, returning in the dusk of
evening. With Gurtha on the shore
is Than, the great giant of this fighting race. It is not the first time
Than and Gurtha have been together,
and it is not so much jealousy as a
dawning gleam of intelligence which
begins to work in the brain of the
American. He flies to the woods to
think out the problem.
A week passes and he has not returned; the wise old man of thc
tribe seeks him out, and they discuss
the problem under the stars. There
is a delicious touch of humour and
of satire in the cold logic of this Po-
lonius. "What would you, in a primitive tribe, in which the women are
few and the men many." In the
view of these excellent Super-women
there is no suspicion of immorality.
Their ethics are simply and frankly
unmoral, and if, as Polonius suggests,
you doubt the correctness of their
conclusions, you have only to reverse
the condition, and then conviction
would become absolute.
Polonius tells him of one man who
sulked as he did, and on his return
found the door locked, and advised
him not to run the risk of a similar
experience. He returned, but the
shadow had fallen across his path,
and, although Gurtha was still faithful, the hand-writing on the wall was
too easily discernible for peace of
mind. Me induces Than to row him
back to the open ocean, where as a
derelict he may be picked up and
tided to the shores of civilization.
An attempt to take with him his
dear little Ninith is frustrated by the
vigilance of Gurtha, who swims out
to sea and recovers her darling.
There is no sequel, for when the
hero gets hack to his Fifth Avenue
Club, removes his primitive halo, and
dons the purple and fine linen of
his class, he is quite unable to convince his clubmates that the story
is anything more than the wild
imaginings of a fevered brain. Impossible, you may say; well, read it!
I for oue think it is well worth while.

A Canadian M. P.'s Speech in Newcastle—Imperial
Preference—The Bogey of Dearer Food

There was another largely-attended
Imperial and Tariff demonstration in
the Bigg Market, Newcastle, last
night. Councillor Wm. Vincent was
in the chair, and with him on the
platform, at the back of which was
writ large the legend "For Empire,"
were Mr. H. Barnard, a member of
the Canadian House of Commons;
Mr. N. Grattan Doyle, Mr. J. C.
Crosier (Victoria, B.C.), Mr. C. H.
Nothwanger, Mr. M. Caverhill, Mr.
Chas. Cockburu, Mr. Jos. S. Potts (organising secretary of the Northern
Tariff Reform Federation), Mr. Richard Mitchell, Mr. Thos. Bowser, Mr.
J. Carrick, Mr. Edward 0. Charlton,
Mr. J. Sandilands, Mr. John Smith,
and Mr. John Robinson (Walker),
Mr. H. Patterson, Mr. Thos. Law-
son, Mr. G. Wetherall, Mr. Geo. Davies (Jarrow), and others. Mr. H.
Ashton Richardson, who was to have
been one of the speakers, was absent
on account of illness.
Mr. H. Barnard, who was well received, remarked at the outset of his
speech that it was a far cry from
Victoria, on Vancouver Island, to the
city of Newcastle. He was glad, however, to be present that night. He
represented no political party, and he
did not pretend to dictate to them
—indeed, they would be justified in
resenting dictation from him as to
what was best for this country. There
were certain questions, however,
which affected the whole Empire, and
he trusted they would bear with him
while he discussed one or two of those
questions.    (Applause.)
Imperial Federation
Imperial Federation was a question
he wanted to touch upon. Was it
worth while, or was it not worth
while? To answer that problem he
wanted them for a moment to consider not what the Empire was now,
but what it would be in ten years
from today. Canada had a land area
of three and one-half million square
miles. There were in Canada at the
present time about two people to the
square mile. Let them contrast that
/or a moment with England. In
England and Wales they had about
58,000 square miles, as compared with
Canada's three and one-half millions;
while there were 619 people to the
square mile here as compared with
two in Canada.
There was room for development
in Canada, and the country was
growing rapidly. There was room
for millions and hundreds of millions
of people. Millions upon millions of
acres of land were only waiting to
be utilised for the production of
wheat and other agricultural products
to send to the people of the home
land. And when Canada had given
us what we wanted, she would still
have enough to supply the rest of
Europe. (Applause.) The population
of the Dominion today was about
seven millions, and they were getting
people at the rate of about 500,000
per annum. That was a fair estimate
of the rate of immigration, and it
would not decrease. In fact, experience showed that the volume would
increase.
At that rate, in ten years they
would have added live millions of immigrants alone. Add to that figure
the natural increase of population,
and it would be seen that they would
have 14 millions of people. Counting
Australia, New Zealand, and South
Africa, there would be in the British
Empire, outside the British Islands,
another 24 million people in ten years'
time. That meant 24 millions beyond
the seas, brought up to respect the
law, the tradition of liberty, and all
the institutions of Britain; 24 millions to stand beside the home country in any war she might have to
fight.
Preferential Trading
"The question arises," continued the
speaker, "whether it is worth while
for us to stand together and make
one great federated Empire—the
greatest Empire the world has ever
known. (Applause.) And another
question is, what is the best means
of cementing and welding the Empire
together? The most practical scheme
of all is that of Imperial preferential
trade—trade within the Empire, so far
as we can divert it. (Applause.) Of
course you have got to face the fact
that Imperial preferential trade carries with it Tariff Reform in this
country, but that is for you to say.
"Opponents of Tariff Reform and
Imperial preferential trade always
meet one with the argument that you
cannot combine countries together by
means of tariff treaties. I say they
are wrong there; I say that all experience shows that that is a wrong
idea. I say that if the men who direct
this country put their minds to the
task, they will find no insuperable obstacles to a scheme of Tariff Reform
that will work well throughout the
Empire."   (Applause.)
Mr. Barnard went on to point out
how the Americans had tried to wean
away the loyalty of the Canadian people from the mother-country, and how
those efforts had failed. As a matter
of fact, he said, the feeling in Canada
was stronger than ever in favour of
maintaining the British connection.
(Applause.) They stood by the old
country, and they hoped that some
day we would join them in the endeavour to federate the Empire. Opponents said that tariffs were not effective in producing increased trade, but
there had been an increase in the exports of Britain to Canada since Canada gave a preference; there had
been a large increase in the trade of
Canada.
"We have been told on this side of
the Atlantic," the speaker continued,
"that the door of Imperial Preference
has been slammed, barred, and bolted
against us. That is a statement which
we don't believe. The day will come,
and it is not far distant, when you
on this side will see, as we do in the
colonies, that the door should be open,
and I have enough faith in the common sense of the British people to
believe that it will be opened. (Applause.) I am perfectly convinced
that the great majority of the commercial people of this country are
strongly in favour of Imperial preferential trade."
No Dearer Food
Another objection that had been
taken to Imperial preferential trade
was one whicii he had no doubt had
some weight among the people he was
addressing that night. They were
told that Imperial preference would
increase the cost of their living.
There were many answers to that
suggestion. In the first place, he supposed that Imperial preference would
involve the impost of some slight duty
upon foodstuffs, the main foodstuff, of
course, being wheat. But the price of
foodstuffs, like that of everything
else, was regulated by the law of supply and demand, and if they had
seen, as he had, millions and millions
of acres of land in Canada, waiting
to be tilled, they would not be afraid
about the question of supply. Every
time they gave an inducement to men
to grow more wheat in Canada, they
could bet their life these men would
grow more wheat. When they grew
more wheat they, of course, increased
the supply, and when they increased
the supply they brought down the
price. The thing would work out, it
was economically certain, so that on
this side we would get all the supplies we wanted, and they would not
cost a penny more.   (Applause.)
Every year there arrived in Canada
some 150,000 immigrants from the
United States, while about 160,000 arrived from the United Kingdom. This
matter of American immigration was
proving a difficult problem for the
Canadian Government to face, for
they had to get these new citizens to
accept the English market and not
that of the United States. It was not
true to say that the people of Canada
wanted the English people's money;
there was no country in the world
more prosperous than Canada. All
the Canadian people asked for was
the help and sympathy of Great Britain in preserving Canada for the
British Empire.   They should not for
get that while Canada had seven
lions of people, there was, lying tol
south   and   separated   only   by |
imaginary line, 90 millions of pecj
who realized the possibilities of j
colony.   But Canada did not want|
United    States,    they    wanted
mother-country.   (Hear, hear.)
asked for Imperial preference sd
with the idea of cementing the bl
of  union  between   Canada  and j
motherland, and incidentally thel
of the Empire.   The Canadians -H
all patriotic, and England had i_T
of that in the fact that hardly al
in Canada where there were fact!
and workingmen returned to P_|
ment a man who was in favour
ciprocity   with    the    United   Si
They   were   wise   enough   to   rc|
where their true interests lay.
Canadian people wanted  Englat
help them in two ways; they w;
every inducement to do business
them  in  England,  and they  w
England to do business in Canai
The Spirit of Imperialism f
"I have seen in the course of ■:
political life," concluded Mr. Bal
"the Imperial spirit growing dail[
only in Canada, but in this col
I see today my leader and seve|
his Cabinet over here to see wha
can do to foster that spirit,
seen  the  magnificent  receptiotj
have  received  at  the   hands
people of this country, and I cl
that I  have  never experience^
hospitality.   From all I have
am looking forward with  conj
to  the  day when that  door
perial preference, which has bel

barred, will be flung wide opeij
when the Empire will go on to
state of impregnability that it tl
the   envy   of   every   nation   iif
civilised world.   (Applause.)
Mr.   Grattan   Doyle, who  wa
other  speaker,   impressed   upo
hearers the importance of wha
Barnard   had   said,  and   pointe
that the Canadian people had
great patriotism in the last eld
and had given the mother-couil
magnificent    example. — [Nev\|

CONGESTION  IN  LONDON  MARKET
Ild
authorities are agreed as to the existence of a congestion of
es in the London market.   Divergence of opinion is apparent
ng its degree of acuteness and its causes.   A correspondent, for
e, says it is quite true that certain Canadian and other loans
to be taken in part by the underwriters, but those who know
rket intimately do not largely ascribe this to the scarcity of
in London or Paris, or to the lack of interest on the part of
rs.   In London ancl Paris banks there is probably more money
osit than ever before.   "There is," he continues, "the psycho-
time when an offering should be made, but just now the average
i investor wants a higher rate of interest for his money and is
[ntent with 4 or A]A per cent.   Even the large insurance and
1 corporations overseas are looking for better returns than for-
and the effect is, for example, seen in prices of English Consols
;iglish railway securities, which for so long had been favourites,
ighcr rate of interest appears to be the chief reason why our
government, city ancl railway 4 per cent, loans have not been
ediate success."
ir correspondent correctly points out that it is not ahvays right
[i loans a failure where the public, in response to the advertise-
pnly takes a portion of the securities.   As a matter of fact, the
.ritingS are, as a rule, gradually placed throughout the Kingdom
underwriters through their brokers.   For instance, the latest
iver loan had only a small proportion at first taken by the public,
.etime afterwards the whole balance was placed with nine or ten *
ce companies.   Further, it often happens that the issuing house
|it expect an entirely successful flotation at the start, but secures
tion on the Stock Exchange and gradually gets rid of the bonds.
|hile these contentions are true, the reports received by The
ry Times regarding a large number of Canadian issues in Lon-
w that not only were large amounts left with the underwriters,
underwriters have had considerable difficulty in getting the
es absorbed, even when allowed many weeks to do so. That is
[)roof of market congestion. Our contemporary, "Canada,"
jtliat it looks very much as if we may be on the eve of a return
conditions obtaining thirty years or so ago—that is, so far as
ade investments are concerned. That the demand is incapable
|>ing up vvith the supply is proved conclusively by recent experi-
There have been a few exceptions, but these only prove the rule,
losition, so far as the Canadian bond market is concerned, is
:ly disconcerting," it continues. "Loan follows loan in rapid
ion, and the mischief of it is that most of these are left on the
f the underwriters, who, of course, have to nurse their holdings
e best patience they can command.   But each fiasco only serves

to increase the trouble, and there must now be an enormous amount of
undigested stock. Both Montreal ancl Toronto are largely responsible
for the present position. In the opinion of leading financiers, had these
two prominent cities acted on the advice tendered them as to the most
' suitable opportunity for financing their requirements, the present state
of affairs would have been much less acute. Now, it is common
knowledge that large sums have to be provided, thf3. greater portion
of which will have to be raised by means of short-dated bills. Whilst
we shall, of course, continue to finance the requirements of Canadian
municipalities, the terms will undoubtedly be increasingly onerous.
We can only repeat what we have previously said, viz., that Canadian
cities will do well to restrict their expenditure, for the present at all
events, to the lowest possible limits. No one questions that this
country must for many years to come finance the Dominion, but the
persistence with which appeals for funds have been made of late has
made it increasingly difficult for those charged with the necessary
financial arrangements to ensure their success. Canadian cities and
other borrowers are certainly running a great risk of wearing out
their welcome in the London market."
Municipalities cannot be too careful in keeping their expenditure
within the smallest possible limits. It is a good sign to see the local
press advocating this policy. The Calgary News Telegram, as an
example, recently asked whether it would not be wise to postpone
action regarding some of the proposed improvements for a few
months, or until market conditions are more encouraging than they
are now—a very proper question with only one answer. Municipal
financing has assumed large proportions during the past few years.
Although it is inconvenient to put on the brakes at this time, the
attitude of the country lending us most money must be taken as a
significant warning.
Representatives of the city of Toronto are in London endeavouring to market $6,000,000 of the Queen City's securities. Not long
ago, we understand, that city received an excellent offer for every
debenture it had on hand. The offer was refused, and we fear that
Toronto must now suffer with the rest of those making a pilgrimage
to the London market. The city of Montreal has to float loans
amounting to about $13,000,000. That it has borrowed temporary
loans amounting to over $5,500,000, and that these latter loans may
at any time be a source of heavy loss for the corporation are facts
that both the city treasurer and the city auditor have brought before
the board of control. They are considering another attempt to place
a loan of seven or eight millions on the London market through the
Bank of Montreal. If it should happen that 95, or even less, is
offered the controllers, owing to the large temporary loans whicii have
been contracted, they may be compelled to accept the tenders.
The signs are plain that Canada should keep out of the London
market entirely, and for several months.

"Resolved, that this Congress reaffirms its opinion in favour of preferential trade within the British Empire, and pledges itself to press upon
the various Governments concerned
the desirability of taking action to
give effect to this principle."
Moved by Mr. A. G. McCandless,
president of the Vancouver Chamber
of Commerce, and supported by Mr.
G. H. Barnard of Victoria (B. C),
Mr. J. W. Johnson (Belleville, Ontario., and Mr. W. N. Hedges (Perth,
W. A.), a resolution was passed as
follows:
"For the preservation of the integrity of the British Empire and in the
interests of peace it is desirable that
all parts of the Empire co-operate towards Imperial defense, and that the
respective Governments be urged,
through the chambers of commerce, to
adopt a practical scheme of co-operation at an early date."
The next assembly of business men
of the Empire will meet in Toronto
in June, 1915.
[This does not accord with the
views of the Victoria Times as to
Mr. Barnard's occupation in Europe.

THE COMMONWEALTH
It is a satisfaction to be able to
comment on the remarkable progress
made by the "Commonwealth" since
this important business was purchased
from Finch & Finch a year ago. The
new firm celebrates its first birthday
today and has no reason to regret
having embarked in business in Victoria. The turn-over has steadily increased in spite of more competition,
and perhaps this is due to the remarkable popularity of the Hobberlin
clothes. The store is known as "The
House of Hobberlin" and has already
become the Mecca of those who seek
the newest and smartest in gentlemen's furnishings and clothes. This
line of goods avoids the peculiarities
and excesses which characterise some,
at any rate, of the so-called up-to-date
wear, which may be up to date, but
certainly is not fashionable. T'he
Week hopes to congratulate the Commonwealth firm on many prosperous
birthdays.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE — Whether
the proper definition of Christian
Science is a religion, a philosophy or
a faith may be a fair subject for debate;
but if there is any truth and any apposite-
ness in the Scriptural mandate "by their
fruits ye shall know them," then Christian
Scientists arc entitled to far more credit,
and their creed to far more respect, than
they generally receive. The Week has no
intention of becoming involved in a controversy on this subject, but in view of the
ignorant attacks whicli have recently been
made upon Christian Science, would venture to suggest that facts cannot be disproved by argument, and that there are
more things in heaven and earth than are
dreamt of in the average man's philosophy.
The Week holds no brief for Christian
Science and has always been somewhat
sceptical of its claims, but it knows enough
of its work to feci convinced that it deserves credit for many remarkable cures
which cannot be accounted for on any ordinary grounds, and which inevitably recall
the declaration of the blind man who obstinately refused to be drawn into argument
but just as obstinately stuck to the one fact
that "whereas I was once blind, now I see."
PALABRE DEL INGLESE —Mr.
Thomas Mawson is an Englishman;
he is also the most celebrated landscape artist in the world. He has been
consulted on the laying out of parks and
public spaces by the highest authorities in
Europe and America. A few months ago
he visited Victoria where he was consulted
by the Parks Committee, a body entrusted
with the administration ancl management
of all matters connected with the parks ancl
public spaces of the City of Victoria. By
that Committee he was engaged at a fee
of $5,000 to advise and direct the treatment of these properties, and as between
himself and the Committee the understand
ing was complete. It is true that he had
nothing but "the word of an Englishman"
to bind the bargain, but it is also true, as
narrated by Mr. Evelyn Wrench on the
occasion of his recent visit to Victoria, that
even in South America the natives clinch
their bargains with the phrase "palabre del
Inglese," and that is the highest appeal to
honour that they know. The City Council
of Victoria repudiated "the word of an
Englishman" and instructed their clerk to
make the repudiation irrevocable. The
clerk may or may not have carried out his
instructions, but in any event the letter
never reached Mr. Mawson, and his son is
on the way to carry out the verbal contract
which his father entered into with an official
representative of a Canadian city which
boasts with justice that "it is a little bit of
England by the sea," but which, if its civic
representatives maintain their present attitude in this matter can lay but small claim
to the title.
PIONEER MERCHANTS — Many
paragraph in Thursday's paper which
people will have read with regret the
told that Messrs. Weiler Bros, had sold
their old established business. Not that
there is any reason to suppose that the
business will suffer, or that the public will
not receive the same treatment from their
successors, but that Weiler Bros, represent
one of the oldest and most respected families of merchants in the Capital City. Their
father established himself here fifty years
ago; he was always a popular and progressive man, ancl his sons have well maintained the high reputation which he earned.
There have been no more genial, kindly,
honourable business men in the city. Their
methods were characterised by the best
features of a high class, English firm, although they themselves claim another nationality. With Weilers' it was always a
question of quality and reliability. Mr.
Otto Weiler, who is now relinquishing control of this gigantic business, gave it his
close personal attention, and travelled half
the world over to select the best ancl newest
line of goods. He retires from the business
with the respect of the whole community,
ancl with something more than respect from
everyone who has had the pleasure of transacting business with him or his firm.
RECOGNITION—Mr. E. P. Johnston,
the Assistant Manager of the B. C.
Telephone Company, has resigned
his position after twenty years' service with
the Company, to enter into private business.
Mr. Johnston was as capable ancl as courteous an officer as any corporation could
employ. In an exacting and anxious position he acquitted himself to the satisfaction of the public. Not that he was able
to do by any means all that they asked; for
today the telephone service, like other public services, is behind the requirements of
the city, but this is not Mr. Johnston's fault.
He did the best he could with the material
at hand, ancl in doing this he not only convinced the public of his anxiety to please
and so secured their confidence, but he gave
the fullest satisfaction to his employers. On
being notified of his resignation the directors of the Company presented Mr. Johnston with an extremely beautiful and valuable silver service. Mr. Johnston retires.,
with the satisfaction of knowing that he
has done well in a somewhat difficult
position.
TEREDOS—The Colonist says that
the explanation that poaching craft
are taken to the Fraser River to escape the destructive teredo is "reasonable."
The Week ventures to think that the Colonist has not considered this matter with
its usual deliberation. The charge is not
that poaching craft are taken to the Eraser,
but to Vancouver, and held there until the
case comes before the Courts—and there
are teredos in Vancouver. The point which
strikes The Week is that the Colonist fails
to see that in accepting such a reason it is
endorsing an objection to Victoria as a port.
Does it wish to argue that the onlv safe
place in which to hold a boat must
sought in fresh water, and does it wish
create the impression that teredos are
abundant in the Victoria harbours as to
clanger the condition of a craft which mi
have to remain here for several weeks?
GARBAGE DUMPS—The Weel
pleased to learn that there is a ]
bability of the Health Committee
the Council being able to arrange for a {
bage clump elsewhere than at the back
the Empress Hotel.    The members of
Council who voted for it a fortnight
cannot have given the matter any ser
consideration, but the mere possibility
such an arrangement has aroused a stl
of protest from the public and especf
from property owners in the vicinity, w|
holdings would have been seriously de|
ciated in value if the resolution whiclj
Council   passed   in   one   of   its   mad
moments had been carried out.
MIXED   FARMING—In   a   ri
issue commenting on the Sal
chewan elections ancl the renl
controversy about reciprocity the Hani
Spectator pregnantly  observes:   "In|
time Saskatchewan will see the wisdc
mixed farming.    Then its prosperity
surpass all bounds, ancl reciprocity wl
recalled  merely  as   a  grotesque  drc
This is exactly wdiat the highest autb
Sir William Whyte, has been telling
settlers of the Northwest for years,
says the)' are not farmers but grain gro\
ancl when they really begin to farm
will become self-supporting, and will
to illustrate the anomaly of a so-called
mer importing farm products.   How
this strike the Victoria Times as a soli
of the cheap food problem ancl a quietu
the "reciprocity nightmare" ?
