quantity of water than Elk Lake can supply
will be needed long before Sooke water

Nay, toll no bells; for the "Dead March in Saul"

The sun of April lights our world again.
Death has been mocked, been mocked by men of British
Aye, thou hast slain, O sea, hast slain once more,
Wrenched with rude hands thine uttermost of toll
From those who rule thine highways.   Every shore
Is white with bones where'er thy breakers roll.
Man thou canst slay—thou canst not tame man's soul.
Write on thy rocks and let thy surges croon
Yet one more legend of the wand'ring folk
Whose bit is in thy jaws; who crave no boon
Save to serve others; whose enduring yoke
Not all thy storms or bergs or furies ever broke.
Had'st thou to hear our Nelson's voice again;
Had'st thou to learn what danger meant to Drake;
Had'st thou to prove that bribes and threats are vain
When from the bridge our merchant captain spake
His word, "Be British men," and for that proud name's sake.
For manhood's pride, foregoing life and love
With smiling lips, strong man and millionaire
Stood by to look their last on skies above,
Content thy gloomy depths and death to dare,
An unknown woman's life, another's child to spare.

Make great our pride of kinship—cruel chance

the work specified to be clone within three
months of the signing of the contract, the
Council would have been neglecting its obvious duty if it had adopted any other
course. Whether it is possible to re-arrange
matters with the present contractors, or
whether the work will have to be handed
over to another firm, is a matter for the
Council to decide, and it would be impertinent for an outsider, who cannot have all
the information before him, to make any
suggestion on this point. But one thing is
certain, ancl that is that the City is in a very
difficult, if not a dangerous position, with
respect to its water supply. No amount of
re-assurance on the part of the Water Commissioner or the Colonist, will alter the facts
is supreme in this matter. He has to see
that the City is supplied with water, and it
is for him to decide how he will keep up
the supply. There is one source from which
lie can obtain an almost immediate supply at
little cost. It is hardly a time for quarrelling over details when confronted with such
a hig question. What the situation needs is
courage ancl commonsense, and a man hig
enough to deal with it.
given notice of a motion to rescind this engagement, ancl to advertise for applicants.
The Week thinks that in this course Alderman Cuthbert is very badly advised. There
are a dozen reasons which will occur to the
man in the street why this is so. Mr. Rust
was recommended by a competent sub-committee of the Council, and the Council accepted the recommendation. He has been
City Engineer of Toronto for fourteen
years, and the only fault found with him
is that he has not been pliable in the hands
of political aldermen. This should be the
strongest recommendation for Victorians,
and The Week has not the shadow of a
doubt that public opinion will sustain the
action of the Council in engaging a man of
Mr. Rust's calibre ancl status. Apart from
being indiscreet, the action of Alderman
Cuthbert is decidedly discourteous.
has been favoured with an edition
cle luxe of the forty-second annual
report of the Royal Bank of Canada. For
this it has to thank the popular local manager, Mr. Taylor. The report is a model
of what such documents should be, for it
not only gives the general financial statement but also the comparative statement
from 1869 to date. These statements reveal a condition of affairs which will contain some surprises for those who have not
previously studied the figures. For instance,
as showing the amount of business clone by
the bank ancl the confidence with which it
is regarded by the public, it may be pointed
out that the deposits of all classes have increased from $71,000,000 to $85,000,000
during the last year, an increase of approximately twenty per cent, which is certainly a
remarkable showing. Net profits for the
year reach the handsome figure of $1,152,-
249, which with $243,230 brought forward,
left an amount of $1,395,480 for distribution. At the thirtieth of December last, the
reserve funds stood at $7,056,188. The
assets of the Company have increased during the year by $18,018,166. The net profits for the year are at the rate of more
than eighteen per cent, on the total paid up
capital of $6,200,000. The directorate includes some of the strongest ancl ablest
financiers of the Dominion, with Mr. H. S.
Holt, the President of the Montreal Light,
Heat ancl Power Company, at the head of
affairs; all of which is respectfully submitted for the general information of the
public, with regret that The Week is not
favoured with the full report as an advertisement in whicii case it would be able to
show that the Royal Bank of Canada is
easily one of the most progressive of the
many chartered banks which have made the
hanking system of the Dominion famous.
CITY ENGINEER—The City Council
has engaged Mr. Rust of Toronto as
City Engineer.   That gentleman has
resigned his position in the East and notified the Mayor that he will be on hand on
the 20th of May.   Alderman Cuthbert has
pleasure in acceding to the request of
Gladys Ballantyne to say a word in
favour of a movement inaugurated by the
Woman's Auxiliary toward raising funds
for a new hospital. It is a matter of common knowledge that the present building is
in every cense behind the times and altogether unsuited for up-to-date hospital practice. The city is growing rapidly. The
accommodation is being taxed more and
more every week, and in an age when medical science has made gigantic strides both
in thc alleviation of suffering and the saving of human life, it is an anachronism that
the capital city of British Columbia should
have to struggle along with an obsolete
building and inadequate appliances. Jt is
the intention of the Woman's Auxiliary to
ask thc City ancl the Provincial Government
to make large donations to the building
fund, but they have very wisely decided
that the people should help themselves, and
they want to raise a substantial amount by
voluntary subscription. They havc already
raised $15,000 and want $300,000. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1912
On Saturday morning last I had a
great shock. Coming down town a
little earlier than usual, I noticed a
number of yellow posters conspicuously displayed on boardings, temporary buildings, and walls. Around
these posters a 'number of people had
collected, attracted by the somewhat
startling announcement that the fair
city in Victoria was in the grip of a
" Vice Vampire," — whatever that
might mean. I looked around but
saw nothing out of the way. Things
seemed to be going on as usual; the
ubiquitous and well-dressed stenographer was hurrying along to her
office duties, apparently without any
consciousness of the "pestilence that
walketh at noonday," and not a few
people were incredulously demanding
what it was all about. Later in the
day people were being accosted at
every street corner by small boys
yelling, "Buy a copy of the Real Estate Journal—all about the Vice Vampire!" Then I realized that the whole
thing was an advertising device, intended to popularize Victoria as a
place of residence and to boost real
estate. I must confess that such an
explanation would never have occurred to me if I had not been emphatically assured that it was the correct one. Moreover, I was told later
in the week that it had had the desired effect and that shoals of telegrams had been received from the
prairies asking for appropriations of
building lots. On the principle that
the end justifies the means, I suppose
that it would be hypercritical to com
plain of this dangling of Hastiness tin
der the nose of our citizens, of this
stirring up of putridity in our streets,
What still puzzles me is that the real
estate men should have taken such an
original view of the matter. Apart
from that, there is nothing about the
whole proceeding which puzzles me in
the least. It may be a little more
subtle than I am aware of and its
"raison d'etre" may be found in the
fact that throughout the West the
male population is in the proportion
of about two to one to the female.
Viewed from this standpoint, and
from this alone, the advertising device may possibly have a logical explanation.
*   *   *
With reference to my kick about
the inattention of stewards on the C.
P. R. boats, several of these gentlemen have seen lit to buttonhole members of the staff, but not one of them
has seen fit to take the advice tendered to call on the Editor and demand an explanation. The reason is
obvious—they are in a hole and cannot get out of it. Moreover, I intend to follow the matter up every
week if the nuisance is not remedied.
As a Britisher, 1 do not propose to
be bulldozed by a gang of mercenaries, who are well paid to do their
duty, and who, as far as I am concerned, have always been well
"tipped" in addition. I was in Vancouver this week, and I am going to
relate two experiences which can be
vouched for by several other passengers standing alongside of me at the
time. As we were boarding the
steamer two stewards were standing
on deck near the head of the gang
plank. They were watching the passengers struggle up with their grips
and sizing their value from the tip
standpoint.    I  heard one say to the
•other,  "Let  that  b   go,  he  ain't
•good for a quarter." This may be
:but a trifling incident, and as it did
not refer to mc I bear no ill will,
;but it is a straw which shows which
■way the wind blows, and the incident
shows what was uppermost in the
minds of these very haughty and
much be-uniformeci gentlemen. The
other episode occurred on the same
vessel, the same day, as we were
drawing into Victoria harbour. A
passenger, in charge of a baby, had
occupied a stateroom, we will say, for
example, No. io. Leaving the room,
he hunted for a steward, found one,
and said, "There are two large grips
in No. io, can you carry them ashore
for me?" The steward was very
courteous and replied, "I am sorry I
can't. They don't belong to my section, but I'll try to find the right
steward for you." He hunted in vain.
Then hc approached two stewards
who were calmly sitting down, doing
nothing but talking at a time when
passengers were looking for help to
get their baggage ashore. Fie asked
them to go to No. io and fetch these
grips. They both refused pointblank,
possibly because it wasn't in their
"section." Be that as it may, they
didn't go and they sat there "chinning," while passengers were carrying their own grips and while the unfortunate occupant of No. 10 was
chafing because he couldn't very well
look after a baby aud two large grips.
It is only fair to say that ultimately
the steward originally referred to
shouldered the grips himself and carried them all across the bridge to a
hack on Belleville street, for which
he received a reasonable "tip" and
the devout thanks of the passenger.
But what about the two lazy porters
who had nothing to do and apparently thought they were serving the
Company and the public by wearing
out the seats of their pants on a
cushioned couch.
*   *   *
I want to congratulate the City of
Victoria on the admirable judgment
and temper with which the Police
Magistrate handled two peculiarly
nauseous cases during the past week,
I do this because I am not sure that
this invaluable public servant is appreciated as he ought to be, and also
because I am quite sure that he is not
paid as he ought to be. The two
cases to which I refer, the Carroll
and the Chan, presented many .features of extreme difficulty, features
which cannot be made public because
they would create a tumult in the city,
but I want to say that it would have
been impossible to handle these cases
more admirably, more delicately, or
more justly. This appreciation, however, will be mingled with regret on
the part of all right-minded people
when they contrast the denouement
of the one case with that of the other.
In the case of the Chinaman and his
wife, fines aggregating nearly $1,000
were paid, and to that extent the convicted persons have purged their offence in the eye of the law. In the
other case, in spite of a long list of
previous convictions and the emphatic
condemnation of the Magistrate, the
offender although sentenced to six
months' imprisonment has not yet
seen the inside of a cell and never
will. She is out on bail and will remain out. The estreating of her bail
will not cause her the slightest worry
and she will continue to go about, to
conduct her nefarious business, and to
flout the law, just as she had the disgusting effrontery to flout the Magistrate with a flippant salute as she left
the Court. And all because of what?
 'but  that   is  another   story.    I
leave that to the Real Estate Journal,
whoever tells it, it will not be

| Miss Hart's Musical Recital
Tuesday   evening    Miss   Eva
made  her debut to a Victoria
lnce in the Alexandra Hall. Miss
is an exhibitioner of the Royal
Ige of Music and came to Vic-
1 heralded by a large collection of
ira'ble press despatches from Old
|try papers.   She has a light so-
voice, very light, and sings with
.. taste and finished execution,
phrasing is good; her style evils   careful   training   in   a   goocl
Her voice is sweet and melo-
| in the middle and lower regis-
Lit lacks the same melody in the

thin   and   her   notes   short,
er  her  enunciation   is  faulty.
(Hart is essentially a  drawing-
Isinger, and should be in large
Id   for   ladies'   musicales    and
entertainments.    Her   choice
Igs showed clearly that she re-
led her own limitations, as with
ligle exception of the "Titania"
Ifrom    "Mignon,"    she   essayed
lg which  made  demands  upon
kecutive strength.    In lullabies,
exquisite little bird  songs of
I Lehmann,   she   was   as   nearly
Lt as    possible.      Altogether  it

ssful   first appearance  from  the
point of one who expects to sing
to moderate-sized audiences of
less cultured musical people,

Monday night a pastoral play
lied,    "Rebecca    of    Sunnybrook

Itre.    It is -only fair to say that
las  an  American  play  presented

be   regarded   as   a   set-off   to
of the American rubbish which

Inaid "Aunt Miranda."   Tt is true
this   play   makes   no   great   dells on the intellect, but it appeals
|ie  heart,  and  there  is  nothing
tawdry or artificial about its
|)tir or its pathos.    The  climax
as exquisite as it was unexpected,
having read the play or the book,
|s   wondering   how   the   author
would reconcile the obvious denouement with existing conditions. She
did so to admiration; the parting
scene at the door between Rebecca
and her lover being perfectly idyllic.
Altogether a packed house was highly delighted with this charming, fresh
play, and, by the way, the "packed
house" once more justified my oft-
repeated opinion that Victorians
know a good thing even before they
see it. MOMUS.
The Empress Theatre
ft is a long time since the comedy
playlet has been one of the head-
liners at the Empress Theatre, but
this week it is safe to say that
George Ade's amusing farce, "The
Mayor and the Manicure," with James
F. Fulton'in the principal part, has
been one of the hits of the evening.
Principal honours, however, have certainly been going to Professor Bal-
lerini's troupe of trained dogs, to say
nothing of the cat. Throughout the
performance of these talented quad-
repe-ds the Professor says not a word,
the various stars, playing each its
appointed role, contributing its "turn"
as spontaneously as a bevy of chorus
girls. This is a feature which should
not be missed by vaudeville patrons,
and those who are not regular members of the audience would do well to
take a last opportunity of seeing
these wonderfully clever animal performers. There would not appear to
be anything very amusing about a
cane and a band satchel, but there are
few people who can hear Jimmy
Dealy sing his song "With his little
can and satchel in his hand," without being seized with hysterical
laughter. "Alma" is a dainty little
comedienne from London . and her
singing and dancing have thoroughly
deserved the prolonged applause
which they have received, whilst
Barnes & Paul, the Hebraic comedians, have contributed not a little
to the mirth contributed by a bill
whicii this week abounds in mirth-
giving features.
The Majestic Theatre
"Walk—you walk" doesn't sound
very much of a title for a moving-
picture feature, but then it is not always wise to pre-judge a thing by its
name; certainly the film which appeared on the Majestic screen at the
beginning of the week was one of the
most laughable imaginable, and it had
a most excellent moral attached at
tiie same time.
Romano's Theatre
A most interesting series of pictures showing the training to which
the New York fire brigade is subjected was one of the principal attractions during the middle of the
week at Romano's. Another fim of a
decidedly educational value depicted
the operations connected with the
blowing up of the rocks at tlu John
Day Rapids on the Columbia River,
an engineering feat undertaken by the
U. S. Government with the object of
opening up the river for inland navigation.

Crowded houses have again been
the order of the day, or rather of the
evening, at the Broad Street house,
thereby justifying the action of the
management in introducing vaudeville turns between the moving-picture films. The turns which hav.e
been su introduced have all been of
good standard quality and the pictures have been kept up to the first-
rate mark whicii has always characterised the shows at the Crystal,

William Faversham
At the Victoria Theatre next Monday, April 29, William Faversham will
inaugurate his annual visit to Victoria
by the first performance in the "The
Faun."     For   several   seasons   past
Mr. Faversham has turned his talents
to the display of roles of varyingly
sombre aspect, and in turn he has
given us romance in the "Squaw
Man," tragedy in "Herod," and realism in "The World and His Wife."
This season he has elected to devote
his attention to the exploitation of
comedy of the most pronounced and
merry type; gales of laughter sweeping constantly through audiences from
coast to coast have been his most
treasured reward, for Mr. Faversham
believes that the chief mission of the
theatre is to entertain, and that
to evoke wholesome, spontaneous
laughter is to court the truest symbol
of entertainment.
No play could better suit his purposes than "The Faun." Not only
Mr. Knoblauch furnished a vehicle of
novel theme, suffused in fantasy and
poetry, and the bristling sparkle of
modern life, but one that flashes
throughout with tlie spirit of comedy,
even to a greater degree than in his
other great comedy success, "Kismet."
In mythological times a Faun was
the deity of the shepherds and field
creatures, and indicative of the joys
of nature and the glad delights of
the outdoor world. Now the Faun
of Mr. Faversham's acting and Mr.
Knoblauch's imagining in an immortal, like all his race, ancl falling
asleep through the centuries, he
awakens in the garden of an English
lord. By a clever dramatic device,
the Faun is taken into the home of
the Britisher, robbed of his scanty,
although picturesque attire of lynx
skins, clothed in the conventional
garb of civilization, and introduced
into the artificial narrow society of
fashionable London of today as an
Italian prince. Thus is freedom and
truth ancl optimism and gaiety
brought face to face with convention
and greed and strife and pessimism.
With unleashed enthusiasm the Faun
sets about turning the persons with
whom he comes in contact back to
Nature and naturalness of expression
and living. The ensuing struggle,
with its many humorous and sometimes thrilling experiences, furnish
the story of the play, and keep the
audience unceasingly convulsed with
merriment. Finally the Faun achieves
his purpose, and heeding the invitation of the wide outdoors, he flings
aside his garments of civilization, and
returns again to the flower-strewn,
bird-calling world from whence he
came. Mr. Faversham brings "The
Faun" direct from a signally prosperous engagement at Daly's Theatre, New York, with all the original
cast intact, including the beautiful and
talented Miss Julie Opp, who is provided with one of the finest roles of
her career.

Men Die, Women
By Bohemian
"Men die, women live! What man, what
real woman can read these four words with
dry eyes? Always, always the men die that
the women may live! You know, I know,
that is the symbolism of manhood. I glorify
the nobility of men, I weep for the selfishness
of my sex."—Elizabeth Nichols Watrous, in
thc New York Herald.)
The above tribute to a sex which is
getting all the worst of it these days
in the hurly-burly of political, social
ancl economic struggle, comes at a
time when it is especially grateful,
ancl the more so since it is from the
pen of a woman. *.
It is called forth by the sublime
self-sacrifice of the men who went
down on the Titanic, and is at once
a fitting and a timely tribute. No
man would want to contrast the conduct of the sexes in face of such a
disaster, and if he did so, he would
find nothing to justify the conclusion
that the women who were saved were
less heroic than the men who were
Against the beautiful devotion of

he was seen rushing for the boats,
and who is never-to-be-forgotten
words declared, "Oh, I don't want to
get into the 'boat, but* I do want you
to let me put these two boys in, their
mother is waiting for them in New
York." Then he kissed the boys, put
them in, waved a loving farewell, and
with a smile of relief on his face, returned to the deck of the sinking
The annals of thc race show that
men and women are equally heroic,
and that no one sex is capable of
making a greater sacrifice than the
other. All the same, it comes about
through the inexorable decrees of fate
that "men die and women live." It
is the chivalry of manhood that has
stamped this inevitable experience in
the annals of our race. There never
was a time when it was not so, but
there never wa's a time when its immanence was so emphatically revealed, and there never was an incident
in which class distinction so completely vanished and when men of the
highest social and financial positions
exemplified so fully the true spirit of
that grand old motto, "Noblesse
Yes, 'men die and women live," but
the voluntary sacrifice of life is but
the baldest statement of an historic
fact, and that gift is the least which
the sterner sex is eternally offering to
the weaker. The heroism of brave men,
who, as a matter of course, and without an "arriere pensee" placed the
women in the boats and stayed on
deck themselves, is far less impressive
in its actuality than in its symbolism.
In all ages, our great writers have
told of the beauty of character, of the
gentleness, of the devotion, of mother
and wife. We have been taught to
regard these, as indeed they are,
the anchors of the soul. However
far we may have wandered in the
highways and byways of life,' the
hardest among us has his moments of
softness when memories of golden
days steal over him.
The recollection of mother and wife
is the talisman which recalls many a
wanderer to a sense of duty and rescues him from irretrievable ruin.
And yet "men die and women live."
For the world is full of men who
carry their burdens unknown, that
their loved ones may not grieve; who
crucify   themselves   daily   that  their]
loved ones may not suffer; who spend
more time in shielding them from the
breath of a harsh wind than in discharging what are unusually regarded
as the duties of life. But they choose
to regard this as their chief duty
and their greatest delight.
How many brave men have had to
cast aside their ambitions because of
the limitations imposed by devotion
to a beloved one? How many have
had to turn their eyes from the goal
which they hoped and longed to
reach? How many have sorrowfully
buried the. plans on which they first
sketched their lives, because they
clashed with the wishes of one who
was more to them than life?
There is something far sadder in
the abandonment of one's life scheme
under the stress of personal obligation to another than in the abandonment  of life  itself to  save  another.

promise was made that in the current

what is undoubtedly the ablest novel
of the Spring season, "He Who
The more I look into this book, the
better I like it. It is a work of art;
it is characterized by literary craft-
manship by restraint, by sanity, by
spiritual insight, and by sound philosophy. There is just a suspicion of
what one of the best American reviewers suggests to be a "fake," and
that is, that the story purports to be
autobiographical and to be written by
a woman who renounced the love of
her life and  is seeking through the

Not in the clash of war; no boom
Of cannon thundered on their path

But in the calm sweet peace of night;
Tlie world at rest, with scarce a breath
Of wind, or haze to mar the sight,
They rushed upon their death.
And met it.   Cringing?   No, like men
Who knew they bore a glorious name
Ancl scorned to sully it, for then

Therefore in pride they took their stand,

Calmly they heard the frightful sound

It requires far more heroism and is a
far surer test of strength of character.
Yes, once more, "men die ancl women live." One great thinker said,
"1 die daily," and there is only one
record which will some day reveal the
story of the dying life of the men of
the world, who, after making all these
sacrifices, who, after living and
breathing that one woman might be
happier and might be screened from
danger, who, after subordinating
every consideration and cheerfully
consigning every hope to a living
tomb, have found that the epitaph
which their experience engraved upon
it was "Cui bono?"
And yet the faithlessness of some
women will never count with men.
It will never cause one true man to
deviate from his purpose. It may
shake the foundations of his belief;
it may inflict a gaping wound in his
heart, but as ever, he will continue to
shoulder his burden, not as an irksome duty, but as a Heaven-sent privilege; for, after all, the balance is
on the right side, and when the tinsel
is worn off and the impulse of the
moment has spent itself or passing
years have demonstrated the difference between gold and dross in human character, the women who "live"
will, even if too late, remember the
men who "die," and perhaps remember them with the tenderness and appreciation so generously exhibited by

hang these reflections on.
medium of this book to let him know
the reason. I do not think that this
explanation, which is to be found in
the preface, has any bearing upon the
book or its value as a literary document. It matters not whether it is
an autobiography or a work of imagination; its intrinsic merit depends
on its literary qualities and its brilliant analysis of character.
The Suthor's name is not given.
She effaces herself and dedicates the
book to M. L. G., who is presumably
the discarded lover. She excuses herself for writing the book on the plea
that she could not bring herself, to
tell him these things. Because she
would not marry him unless he knew
them, she let him go away. The keynote to the book is found in these
words: "As people say, not thinking
what the words mean, "We have
passed out of each other's lives." But
can those who have loved deeply pass
out of each other's lives? You are
my life. You began to light the
world for me—not the very first time
we met, because then I misunderstood
you strangely—but the second time."
The story begins when the authoress is little more than an infant.
She never knew her mother, who was
an actress. Like Topsy, she wasn't
brought up, she just "grew up." She
lived at the footlights, was tossed
about from pillar to post from boarding house to boarding house, was half
starved and ill clad, and so fought her
way through infancy, childhood, and
adolescence to womanhood.
This part of the book is intensely
interesting as a portrayal of a certain
phase of life, about whicii the general

reader knows little or nothing and
imagines a great deal.
The story is told with a fidelity that
cannot be questioned, and is the best
thing I have ever read as a sketch of
such a life. It is not to be wondered
that the authoress found life very
drab, and that she came out of it with
a poor opinion of men. Perhaps I
had better quote her own words on
this subject: "I came out of this episode with a low opinion of men. Old
or young, ugly or handsome, I
thought them all the same at heart.
1 made up my mind that never would
I love as Alma had loved Cyril, because no man was worth such love.
I decided that I would use men, but
would never let thein use me."
One of the most illuminating passages in the book is that which tells of
her experience with the typical manager, who tried to show her the
"easiest way." Following out her
principle of "using" men, she placed
herself in his hands, and having given
her promise, she hurried from the
room. "Yet I went with my head up,
smiling. I think if I had had a mother
who loved me, her heart would have
ached at that smile."
It is rather singular that a woman
should be able to write an account of
this episode at a later date to the man
she really loved. Yet she tells it in
all its naked horror. She says, "I try
to tell the truth. But what is the
truth about one's self? Can one
know, even in the depths of one's own
heart, where nobody else ever sees,
can* one know exactly why certain
things were done in the past, the past
of years ago, or yesterday, or what
one's real feelings were? Is a woman
able to judge her own soul, or can
God alone do that?"
No wonder that the translation of
a girl of artistic temperament and
stage up-bringing should revel in the
luxurious delights which wealth procured for her. One cannot refrain
from sympathizing with her feelings.
"I did not think of myself as bad,
because I was to live in that suite,
though I had no money of my own
to pay for it and for other luxuries I
expected. I thought, 'now at last, I
am going to have lovely things and
be dainty and sweet. I can take two
baths a day if 1 like, or even three,
and there will be nobody to nag and
be hateful.' It seemed almost a virtue to be so glad of the sweetness and
cleanliness and beauty that will be
Of course this had to come to an
end. The woman's true nature asserted itself. The eternal principles
which, after all, are the salvation of
men and women, operated to bring
satiety and disguest in their train, and
in a moment of recovered reason her
better self revolted and she abandoned the suite.
Then she travelled; met a Russian
prince, and dallied with him. The
effect of her former intrigue had left
its marks, and so she has to relate,
"I was tremendously flattered by his
admiration, and though his curious
magnetism never touched the higher
part of me, I was tempted by him
almost to the breaking point. The
fight was the harder because I was
without moral scruples, except an instinct which was like a voice whispering in an unknown language. If
I had been at heart immoral, the rest
of my life would have been different,
and you and I might never have met,
but I was only unmoral. I was
pagan." In this case she won out, because, with all her strength, she had
determined to disappoint him, "That
was my secret weapon—woman's
pride of self against a man's, and the
woman won."
It is not necessary to dwell on several other intrigues whicii came in
the  way of this remarkable  woman.

There is a great rush of immigrants into Western Canada this
spring. New records are being made almost daily in that respect.
One day recently 2,546 persons arrived in Winnipeg on the various
railway lines. They come from the British Isles, Europe, Eastern
Canada ancl the United States. A fact that is being specially commented upon is the increase in immigration from Great Britain. The
settlers this year appear to have more money than those who arrived
in other seasons, the new-comers from the soutii being especially well
off financially.
Some of the United States authorities are quite alarmed over the
number of settlers moving from that country to Western Canada.
They are said to be particularly uneasy over the formation of the
"Million for Manitoba League." This organization will make a
strenuous effort to induce more of the southern farmers to settle in
this province.

quorum. The Amalgamated mines, which were closed clown on February lst, on account of the heavy snowfall, will be reopened on April 1.
The Ames-Holden, McCready, preferred stock pool expires on
Monday. This pool was formed for a period of twelve months, the
underwriting being taken on that understanding. The banks "carried"
the preferred stock. The Ames-Holden consolidation has had a successful year, and it is not likely that the stock will be offered for sale
below the price of issue, when the pool expires. The company has the
following securities issued: Bonds, $1,000,000; preferred stock,
$2,500,000; common stock, $3,500,000.
Certainly there is no slackening in the demand for loans on either
farm or city property. The settlement of the strike in the Old Country
is a source of satisfaction, and fears that the trouble might affect
adversely the flow- of mortey from the British Isles to Canada are
dissipated. There is no change in the local money rates, but they are
firm. What Canadian Finance recently said regarding the tendency of
the banks to-restrain speculation still holds true, especially as far as
deals in outside property are concerned.
The great record made during the month of March in all business
statistics in a matter of considerable comment among business men.
Figures show that last month the bank clearings in six leading Western
Canada cities increased 55 per cent, over tlie corresponding month of
1911. Customs receipts increased 61 per cent., ancl building permits
132 per cent, in the cities referred to.
The average increase in the bank clearings of all the Western cities
for the month was 33.6 per cent., while the average increase in the
Eastern cities was 3.7 per cent. The total clearings last week for all
Canada were for four days only—on account of Easter holidays.
But even so, most Western cities showed increases.

On April 17, St. John's Church,
Duncan, was the scene of a very pretty wedding when Miss Jean Orr and
Mr. W. T. Williams were united in
marriage. The church was tastefully
decorated with masses of beautiful
Spring flowers and was filled with the
many well-wishers of the happy pair.
The bride, who looked winsome in a
white serge suit and picture hat, was
given away by her uncle, Mr. Law-
son, of Revelstoke. Little Marjorie
Powell, niece of the bride, made a
sweet flower girl and Mr. Williams
was supported by Mr. J. F. Mason
of Victoria. Archdeacon Scriven officiated and during the service Miss
Lawson rendered some delightful
music. After the ceremony the wedding party adjourned to the house
of Mr. B. W. Powell, where an informal reception was held. Mr. and
Mrs. Williams left early by motor for
Victoria, there to catch the boat for
Honolulu, where the honeymoon will
be spent, and on their return will reside in Victoria.
Woman is a conundrum—man can't guess
it, and don't want to give it up.
It was a sad case of vegetable depravity
when the first apple set out to destroy tne
first pair.

She proceeds vvith her story, tells
everything, hides nothing from "the
man who passed."
"After you and I knew each other
and I began to care, I tried with all
my might to stop loving you for fear
of the consequences. I foresaw that
loving you would mean suffering for
me, perhaps for both. After we had
our second talk together, the queerest,
most starry talk any woman ever had,
with any man she was just beginning
to know, I could think of nothing and
no one* but you. I could not imagine
how I had found the world worth living in before I knew you were it it."
And then she had to make her decision. She dare not tell him of the
past; she feared not that he would
not forgive her, but that he would
forgive her, well knowing that if he
did the future reaction would be more
terrible than she could bear.
The poignancy of her grief is shown
in the utter abandonment of sorrow
in which she says, "If I could have
died with the white light of your love
shining on me, I would have thanked
And then she went, and Time, the
healer, did his work, and she was able
to write, when years had flown, "You
must not picture me as desperately
despairing or existing feverishly from
day to day, for I am a thousand times
better and happier for having you in
my memory like a picture over an
altar behind a curtain. While sunrises and sunsets throw banners
across the sky, while winds call, stars
throb, and waters murmur to my soul,
I cannot lose all that is worth having
or live behind prison bars."
A fine book, with a line ending, and
the old time philosophy of life once
more justified. A true woman, whose
inner sanctuary is never polluted, and
who preserved the best part of her
nature through all the stress and
storm of life. Who was wise enough
and strong enough to put away the
greatest happiness, because she valued
permanent peace. A woman who
solved the biggest problem that can
confront a woman by paying the biggest price a woman can pay, and who
in the end attained peace. One of
the few women who knew that it is
not the "Now" but the "Then" that

Sir,—The wife of a tobacconist
who at one time occupied a corner on
Government street, told me that she
had seen tons of cat-fish secretly hurried on the banks of Beaver Lake.
This would suit the ideas of sixty
years ago; we know better now.
But Alderman Cuthbert. Mr. Raymur
and our Mayor, I am sorry to say,
think differently. Decayed animal
matter (of course this includes fish
and is specially mentioned) is exceedingly dangerous in water.. Our

and we have to report all these matters to him.
