I CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP
As in duty bound the Liberal Press
[made the most of Mr. R. L. Borden's
threatened resignation. The Week says
"threatened" because even now it is not
[quite certain whether he resigned or not.
In any event the incident furnished the
Liberals with an opportunity to describe
lthe Conservatives as in "a condition of
dc," whereas if the truth were told,
I Mr. Borden's resignation, if persisted in,
would create a veritable panic in the
Liberal ranks. The Week holds no brief
for Mr. McBride, Mr. Roblin, Mr. Monk
lor any of the distinguished politicians
I whose names have been mentioned as possible successors'to Mr. Borden,'but it holds
Ivery decided views on the unfitness of
Ithat gentleman for the Leadership of his
| party. It held and expressed these views
| long before there was any suggestion of
[other names, and it holds them more
[strongly today than ever. Mr. Borden is
| a most estimable man, of the most mediocre attainments; He could never lead
la corporal's guard to victory, much less a
{large party. He has none of the instincts
land none of the magnetism of a leader.
{He has missed every great opportunity of
[making a stand against the policy of the
■Laurier Government, and in some instances, notably that of the Grand Trunk
{Pacific Railway Policy, he literally made
la "hash" of matters through not knowing
Ihis own mind. His stand on the Naval
•Question was vacillating, and on the present great Reciprocity Question feeble and
{featureless. In no sense does he lead the
{party at the present time. The leaders of
the Liberal party resort to every device
Ito keep him in his position; they successively, and successfully, arouse his pergonal pride and his jealousy in order to
{render it impossible for any concerted
{movement to secure his removal. In a
{political sense he is "the easiest thing" in
{Opposition leaders that a Government ever
{had to deal with, so no wonder they do
|their best to keep him there. A man who,
however estimable his character, has
failed through ten years of leadership to
Impress himself on the party or the coun-
jtry should resign just once more and stay
nth his resignation. Whatever the immediate effect on the party might be, the
iiltimate effect could hardly fail to hasten
jthe return of that party to power. The
Wintry is face to face with a great issue,
involving not merely commercial but Na-
jtional and Imperial interests. Mr. Bor-
Jden has utterly failed to rise to the
[occasion, and in the opinion of not a few
■thinking Conservatives the psychological
{moment for his final retirement has
larrived.
IBRITISH NEWS
The Colonist has replied* to the com-
Iplaint of The AVeek that it fails to pub-
Ilish British news by writing two lengthy
■editorials, one on Tuesday, the other on
■Thursday. These editorials occupy near-
lly two columns and emulate the usual
■success of the Colonist in dodging the
{issue. The complaint of The Week, endorsed by Sir Charles Tennant in a
{lengthy interview, is that the Colonist
{publishes an infinitesimal amount of
■British Empire news and substitutes
{columns of uninteresting and trivial Am-
[erican items. As the reply of the'Colonist
lis so lengthy it is only fair to analyse it
Icarefully and set forth as briefly as possible the reasons, or rather the excuses
I offered for the paucity of British news.
[The first excuse is that on reading the
^English daily papers of given dates very
was found which would interest
iiaii  readers.    In   fact  it  declares
|c only item of real interest to
butside the United Kingdom was
Aon to the "Mary Fund," the sub-
Vf which was telegraphed to the
|n Press at the time.    Now all
that The Week has to say about the first
excuse is that the reader of the London
exchanges is a very poor judge of what
would interest a person outside of the
United Kingdom, because, as will be
shown further on, other Canadian papers
have no difficulty in finding abundance of
live British news, presumably of interest
to their readers'. The next excuse is that
people arg, unreasonable in expecting to
read details of British news over their
rolls and 'coffee. We imagine that even
the Colonist is not published solely to
amuse cranks, and it is doubtful whether
there are many English people in British
Columbia who would be so unreasonable as
to expect to see in the Colonist day by
day news of the particular locality where
they had lived. The next excuse is that-
British born people in British Columbia
can keep pretty well abreast with what
is transpiring if they read the weekly
synopsis of leading events in "Public
Opinion." A synopsis at least a fortnight
old is a poor substitute for a newspaper,
and "Public Opinion" is more useful as
the ground work for editorials than as a
vehicle for conveying news. On this point
the Colonist somewhat complacently remarks: "We are not claiming that our
British and general European news is as
complete as we would like it to be, but
we feel warranted in saying that it -is by
no means as deficient as some persons
(meaning The Week) would have us
think." Well, we shall see about that
towards the end of this article. The next
excuse is that such items as the wreck of
the Sechelt, the New York fire and the
Chinese situation came more closely home
to 999 out of every 1,000 Colonist readers
than the minor incidents of British news
that we had on that day. This may be
granted and the inference is that British
news were crowded out by these important
items, but a reference to the columns of
the Colonist on Sunday last, the day when
these items monopolised the front page,
will show that nearly a column was devoted to a transcendental treatise on "The
aim of Theosophy," whicii would have
been quite as appropriate in any subsequent issue; and that there was no encroachment on the full page allotted to
Sport and the full page occupied by
Marine News. But let that pass. The
Colonist winds up its editorial of Tuesday
with the re-iteration: "We would like to
do better in regard to British and Foreign
news than it is POSSIBLE to do under
existing conditions, but we do not admit
that the Colonist is nearly as deficient in
this respect as some people (meaning The
Week) would have us believe." Evidently Mr. Walter Scott, Premier of Saskatchewan, received the same impression
as Sir Charles Tennant with respect to the
news columns of the Colonist, for by
Thursday morning the Family Journal
had awakened to the fact that the cry of
The Week was not a cry of "Wolf" and
that its complaint was being endorsed by
public men whose opinions could not be
ignored; therefore, it very reasonably
asks for suggestions from its readers. But
with singular disingenuousness it proceeds
to discount the suggestions by claiming
that it already publishes all that is worth
publishing. It then defends its own system by saying that it took two issues of
the London Times at random and found
one of them to contain fourteen inches of
news from the United States and tlie other
eighteen inches. Apart from the assurance necessary to institute a comparison
between itself and the London Times one
may ask whether the Colonist is aware that
the space devoted in that paper to United
States news according to its own showing
averages more than the space devoted by
the Colonist to the news of the whole of
the British Empire ? Now, it may be interesting to see whether the Colonist is
correct in stating that it gives all the im
portant and interesting news. On the subject of possibility The Week assumes, and
surely it is a reasonable assumption, that
whatever British news are available to the
local contemporaries of the Colonist are
also at its own disposal. The Week has
taken four issues of the Colonist, the Vancouver World and the Vancouver Province
and three issues of the News-Advertiser.
These issues cover dates of March 25, 26,
27, 28 and 29. To analyse we find the
space devoted to news emanating from any
part of the British Empire as follows:—
March 25: Colonist, 11 inches; the World,
34 inches; the Province, 41 inches.
March 26: Colonist, 24 inches (of which
19 are devoted to the formation of a
Bruisers' Union with Jimmy Britt as the
hero). March 27: The World, 58, and
the Province. 65 inches; News-Advertiser,
23 inches. March 28: The Colonist, 11
inches; the World, 53 inches; the Pro-
the News-Advertiser, 58
vince, 40 inches
inches. March 29: The Colonist, 11 inches; the World, 68 inches; the Province, 55 inches; the News-Advertiser, 15
inches. This gives an average per day of
14 inches for the Colonist; 32 for the
News-Advertiser; 54 for the World and
56 for the Province. This would appear
to dispose of the contention of the Colonist
editorial that the Colonist publishes "all
the British news possible under the circumstances." Indeed, if one deducts the
article on Jimmy Britt and one on the
Grand National, running to ten inches,
which make it exactly half the total space
devoted to British news in the four days
under review, it will be found that the
average number of inches per day is only
seven, or one-eighth of the space devoted
by the World and the Province to the
same purpose. A careful investigation of
the subjects treated in the wider news service of the Vancouver papers will show
that almost without exception they are of
interest to every intelligent British subject. Such important matters as Coronation news, Colonel Seely on Reciprocity,
Tariff Reform, the Durbar, the wreck of
the Preussen, the Eastern Problem, Mormon Emigration, Boers in Bermuda, Ambassador Bryce and Mexico, Canada's
Treaty Rights, Churchill and the Anarchists, Canadian Stocks in London, State-
Aided Emigration, Canadian Agents in
the English Midlands, being absolutely
ignored. These figures reveal another significant fact, viz., that the competition of
the World and the Province in Vancouver
compels the News-Advertiser to publish an
appreciably larger amount of British news
than the Colonist which has the same proprietary. Indeed, on March 28, the News-
Advertiser led them all by publishing 58
inches while the Colonist on thc same date
only had eleven. Now figures are admittedly tedious, but sometimes they arc necessary, and in this case they clearly demonstrate that the defence of the Colonist
will not hold water. Even including
"Jimmy Britt" and the "Grand National"
it publishes less than one-fourth the
amount of British news found in its contemporaries, ancl only one-third of that
found in the columns of the News-Advertiser controlled by tlie same interest as
itself. It is not for The Week to speculate as to the reason for this. It is sufficient to justify the charge that has been
brought, and that has been so distinctly
emphasized by men of note. The Week
has shown that it is not only possible to
obtain more British news but that the
contemporaries of the Colonist do obtain
it, and that under the force of competition its own allied newspaper is compelled to do the same, and succeeds in doing it. The obvious inference is that
the reason the Colonist ignores British
news in favour of trivial and often degrading American items is because there
is no competition in Victoria. It cannot
be that the cost is prohibitive, for it is
a well known fact that the Colonist is the
most valuable newspaper property on the
Coast. Its readers are asked to make suggestions ; here is a practical suggestion
based on ascertained and demonstrated
facts:—Give Victorians the same British
news service as the Vancouver newspapers
give their patrons, and do not leave us
entirely at the mercy of the man with
stentorian voice who hawks the Vancouver World on the streets of Victoria every
night in order that Victorians may read ,
the news.
GLOBE MACDONALD
Mr. J. A. MacDonald, the Editor of
the Toronto Globe, was entertained at.
lunch by the Canadian Club on Tuesday
last. On commenting upon his visit in jf
the last issue The Week paid a tribute
to his ability, and said that if he would
steer clear of politics he could deliver an
address upon a dozen subjects which
would be highly instructive and beneficial.'
That this observation was not uncalled
for is evidenced by the fact that Mr. Mac- _
Donald commenced his address by entering a protest against any limitation in the ;
choice of a subject, and claimed that a
guest of the Canadian Club should be permitted to speak on any subject he liked.
It is hardly worth while joining issue with
him on this point, because the position
he assumes is so palpably untenable. The
Canadian Club is not the only institution
in which, for the sake of harmony and
in order to include in its membership
people of differing faiths and creeds, both
politics and religion are eschewed, and if
Mr. MacDonald does not realise that the
usefulness of the Canadian Club would
be at an end if this rule were not observed
it would be a waste of time to argue the
matter with him. But for once the militant editor lacked the courage of his convictions, for just when everyone thought
he was going to take advantage of his
position and follow logically to discuss
Reciprocity, he adroitly switched to
Democracy and delivered one of the most
eloquent, forceful and Jesuitical addresses
ever heard in Victoria. In the judgment
of The Week the ability displayed was
superb, inasmuch as probably three-fourths
of the audience thought that they were
listening to a non-partisan, patriotic appeal, whereas lhey were listening to one
of the most subtle and insidious treatises
on Reciprocity whicli any living Canadian could have composed. Not once was
Reciprocity mentioned; not once was
commerce mentioned, except when the
speaker said he believed in freedom of
trade where the people liked, but the whole
under-current of the address, delivered as
it was with all the magnetic influence of
a born orator, was to carry the sympathy
of his hearers with a policy wliieh Mr.
MacDonald convinced the audience he believed to be a link in the chain which
would bind the Empire closer together.
It was a fragment of the address which
he has delivered all over the American
Continent, south of the Line, and which'
without doubt he will deliver all the way
across Canada north of the Line. It was
a great missionary effort on behalf of the
Laurier Government and their new policy.
The Week finds no fault with the Committee of the Canadian Club for inviting
a man of Mr. MncDonald's calibre to address it, nor is it possible to criticise so
splendid a deliverance from any standpoint but that it was entirc'y out pf place
in a non-partisan assembly. That an address of a political complexion would be
delivered was evidently expected by the
audience, nine-tenths of which were well-
known Liberals. Mr. Lindlcy Crense, the
esteemed President, presided in an admirable manner, and one can only hope that
his unremitting efforts to raise the prestige
of the local Canadian Club will be attended with success. THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, APRIL 1, 1911
It may seem rather late in the day
for me to make some remarks now
about the Automobile Show which
was held at the Drill Hall during the
last three days of last week, but then
you must remember that I had finished all my copy before it was opened. Of course I was there. Could
there be any more suitable place for
a Lounger to take a little quiet exercise than amongst those inventions
which have been created with the special object of providing the best substitute for walking. In the course of
time I hope to attend to my professional duties in a car, so naturally I
went on a tour of inspection that _
may know exactly what I want when
The Week Publishing Company
presses  this  token  of  esteem  upon
me.
* *   *
On the left of the entrance thc
Western Motor Supply Company with
a superb exhibition of McLaughlin-
Buick cars occupied the first stand.
Their big feature was Model "21,"
which is a magnificent five passenger
touring car with fore doors and 30-
35 horse-power engines, fitted with
sliding gear transmission. This latter point is important, only one of
the firm's models in Victoria bein.-;
fitted with the planetary transmission.
To the mere layman the general appearance and neat finish of this car
appeal, the body being deep blue with
aluminum wheels, whilst all thc biass
work is above reproach. A mere
trifle of $2,225 will see this car delivered at the Lounger's door. That
many others, and these amongst the
highest in the land, shared in my appreciation of this particular car was
evidenced by a scroll announcing the
names of some of the most notable
purchasers. Next came the V. I.
Auto Company with a showing of
Hudsons, Mitchells and Peerlesses.
The Woods Brothers made my mouth
water with a Chalmers; I don't understand much about mechanism, but
I would like to be seen about with
that particular car. Harry Moore
was there with a big showing of the
E. M. F.'s, and the Plimley Company
with numerous Overlands, whilst
Messrs. A. II. Styles vvith Cadillacs
and Oldsmobiles brought the visitor
back again to the entrance.
It was a fine show all right, and in
case anyone felt dull there was a perpetual round of entertainment going
on all the time. Singing, dancing
and fencing alternated on the platform whilst light refreshments were
provided by ladies who were working on behalf of the British and Foreign Sailors' Society. Ah, the fencing! It has always been a mystery to
me, possibly to some others also,
where the talented editor of the B.
C. Mining Exchange had learnt that
slashing style of writing which has
been such a pleasure to so many. See
him with the sabre, and you will
wonder no longer. In this case it is
a moot point whether the pen is
really mightier than the sword. It
may be pardonable also to suggest
that when one has once seen his
doughty performance with a sword
one will no longer marvel at his habitual companion—the big stick.
* *   *
I made some remarks last week
about a gang of "hoodlums" sitting
in the front row of the theatre during
the first performance of "The Midnight Sons," and commented on their
behaviour. I have since learnt that
my estimate of them was perfectly
correct. They were commercial
travellers from the East who were
taking advantage of the "wild and
woolly" to make fools of themselves
at other people's expense. It appears
that they were doing this very literally, and if it had not been for a combination of good luck and kindness
at least one of them would have found
himself in a very parlous condition.
The smart young Easterner very
nearly found one of the fairies too
many for him, and if it had not been
for the fact that certain articles have
an almost prohibitive duty placed on
them to exclude them from the
States, he would now be hunting a
job. Thirty dollar automobile rides
and careless loans of stock are sometimes apt to produce a very pale-
faced and conscience-stricken young
gentleman when the reaction sets in.
I was quite right when I designated
the bunch as "cheap sports." They
were—the cheapest variety.
* *   *
My attention has been called to a
matter which is really of great importance, but to which I have grown
so accustomed that I have ceased to
think much about it, as, probably,
have many others. Those of you who
are clad in fine linen and fare sumptuously every day may be appalled,
but the vast majority will shrug their
shoulders and say "cui malo?" The
ordinary restaurant provides no spoon
for the sugar basins on the table;
consequently, if a diner wishes to
help himself to more he has to use
his own teaspoon. Now, the majority of mankind is not in the habit of
drnking his tea or" coffee through
the medium of the spoon; at the same
time a large number of people do,
and the cheaper the restaurant, the
more spoon-suckers. The moral is
obvious. The man with germs is liable to infect the whole of the sugar
bowl. So you see that apart from the
disgusting idea of the thing, which
one soon gets over, there is a very
real danger to the whole community
in the practice. I might go on to say
that there are persons who prefer to
help themselves to pickles as they
want them, from the bottle, using
their own fork. The vinegar may
prevent infection, but it does not
take a faddist to be somewhat nauseated by such manners. I consider
that the restaurant keepers are to
blame. If they provided forks and
spoons there would be no excuse,
even for the uneducated.
* *   *
I do not see why the law should
not step in with regard to this matter. We laugh when we read that in
Kansas inn-keepers are liable to a
penalty if they do not provide sheets
of a certain length on the beds, or
if they dare to' have a towel hung
up for common use. But when people
make laws which are sensible in theory they can afford to be laughed at
by those who neglect the first principles of hygiene.' It is true that the
world seems mad on the germ question and that if one were to follow
all the dictates of science life would
be too burdensome for endurance.
But there is a golden mean and in
discarding the mandates of the hypersensitive we should not neglect the
warnings of common sense. We
should object to chewing the gum or
tobacco which another person has
thrown away; should we not also
object to partaking of the sugar or
the pickles which his spoon has already contaminated? Incidentally, I
object to gum on principle, whether
someone else has thrown it away or
not.
* *   *
It is a long time since I have allowed myself to give expression to
my feelings on this chewing question.
I cannot for the life of me see how
men and women can continue the
practice when they must see how ungraceful it is. I don't suppose that
there is any harm in it after the boy
and girl stage, when one is not likely
to affix the gum to the most convenient hitching post. It is certainly
unplensant to find one's nether garments clinging to a chair what time
the infant member of the family raises a piercing shriek because the
naughty man has sat upon his chewing gum.   I remember one of the first
remarks made to me when I came to
Victoria. Someone asked me to walk
'down to the Outer Wharf to see the
'Frisco boat come in. "You watch the
faces as the boat ties up," he said,
"and see 'em chewing." There is
something restful in watching a cow
ruminating, but there is nothing restful in watching a girl pr woman
chewing, and I think that if they realized that the majority of decent people invariably liken 'them to cows
when they are thus amusing themselves, they might think it worth
while to give up the habit. I believe
that the term "cow' 'is one of reproach among the fairer sex.
* *   *
We have heard a lot in the papers
about the woman and the hat-pin
nuisance. On behalf of the ladies I
would like to say that they are not
the only persons on this globe who
wantonly disregard the convenience
of others. Man, even man, has one
great failing. He has an incurable
habit of walking the streets with his
umbrella tucked under his arm and
the end sticking out behind. The
gentlemen who affect this style of
umbrella portage are invariably those
who walk slowly along the street and
make a point of crossing from side
to side of the pavement, either to look
in a shop-window or to accost an acquaintance. It never occurs to them
that there are others coming up behind in a hurry, who are unable to
tell intuitively that these little digressions are going to be made and
who imperil their eye-sight or their
clothes in the effort to pass. Some
day I shall "see red" and I shall
snatch and smash an umbrella, and
cheerfully go to gaol for the offence.
Like the suffragettes, I shall pose as
a martyr and refuse to pay a fine.
* *   *
I used to write frequently with respect to men going out of the theatre with their hats on whilst the
National Anthem was being played.
I am glad to say that it has not been
necessary to do so for a long time.
There are very few covered heads to
be seen now-a-days, but I can't help
being rather amused at one thing. It
would appear that there are many
men who feel that it is meet, right
and -their bounden duty to remain uncovered during the first half of the
Anthem, and in many cases that is all
that is played, but who regard it as
an imposition that they should be expected to listen to the whole verse
with bare heads. I have noticed many
times lately that hats ocme on after
three lines. However, half a loaf is
better than no bread, and it is great
thing .that we do not see the theatres
black with hats immediately the curtain falls now-a-days, as we did not
so very long ago.
Loyal as I am though, I have never
been able to appreciate the ultra-
loyalty of tthe Englishman in the
story. I suppose you know the yarn,
but in case you don't, it is worth repeating. The noble lord arrived at
the country house of a wealthy American in ample time to dress for dinner. His host conducted him to his
room and with due pride pointed out
that in the bath-room connecting,
there was a large musical box. "Just
press the button," he said, "and you
will have music whilst you are bathing." He left his guest to his own
devices and went down-stairs. The
Englishman arrived on the scenes
somewhat late, and apologised in
these words. "You see, old man, that
confounded musical-box of yours kept
on playing 'God Save the King,' and
I really couldn't sit down, you know."
In many respects the Victoria City
Council remind me of the storied
King of Spain whose amusement it
was to march his troops up the hill
in order that he might have the pleasure of marching them down again.
Take the case of those funny little
drinking fountains which were erected at the hither and further ends of
the Causeway. One, like Benjamin,
is not, owing to the work now in progress at the north-west end, and the
other like Ishmael, is dry. Possibly
this is caused by sympathetic affection; again, possibly it is not. But
why were the fountains put up if they
There's a Lesson In It
Instead of opposing the christening of a vessel with champagne, prohibitionists ought to encourage it and draw from it a~
great temperance lesson, because after the first taste of wine the
ship takes to water and sticks to it ever after.
It's a strange fact (fact is always stranger than fiction) that
the ship that is christened with water invariably is unlucky. (Ask
any old Salt why this thusness, he may be able to tell you.) The
vessels that have been the most fortunate are those that have been
christened with G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Champagne. Most of the
largest and best of the Atlantic Liners, the Ocean Greyhounds-
were christened with "Extra Dry," perhaps because their owners
realized they would be extra wet forever afterwards. Anyway,
"Mumm's the word" on sea as on land at all the highest class
functions. When you are at sea as to what to order, take our
advice atid order "Extra Dry," the thoroughbred of champagnes.

It is said that there is to be a general clean-up throughout the city. I
would respectfully suggest that a petition be sent to the Federal authorities praying them to authorise a
small expenditure for the purpose of
re-painting the various letter boxes
throughout the city. These are in a
disgracefully shabby condition, and
surely in Coronation year it would
not be out of place that they, in common with the rest of his Majesty's
males should present a smiling and
unabashed front. Paint is not very
expensive, but a little, properly applied, works a wonderful transformation.

I believe that I possess some

so diluted that I never make any

perhaps I have enough to be justified

noted German comedian. "Lonesome
Town," merriest of musical comedies,
is to be his offering at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday, April 3.
"Lonesome Town" is from the pen
of that brilliant librettist, the late
Judson C. Brusie, and is a genuine
laugh-fest from rise to fall of curtain, possessing, in addition, a number
of song hits that are bound to become
popular at once. It is an exceedingly
elaborate production that Dill will
give us, as picturesque as any of the
big New York productions. In fact,
from a standpoint of costumery and
scenery, the presentation is superior
to any that has come to us from the
other side of the Rockies. This is the
unanimous judgment of the critics
wherever Dill has appeared this season.
The same company will appear on
Tuesday, AJ»ril 4, at the Victoria theatre, in "Dream City." This play
comes fresh from San Francisco,
where the critics lauded it as the most
entertaining and beautiful musical
comedy production seen there in

His Hour
BY BOHEMIAN
About twenty years ago a leading
English journal offered a prize for
a definition of the kind of husband
that women like best. The adjudication rested with a jury of matrons
and the prize was awarded to a well-
known novelist for the following definition. "Women like a husband best
who treats them with habitual harshness—with intervals of tenderness."
Loud was the out-cry at the apparent barbarism of this definition, but
the jury stood by their decision and
on the whole it was considered that
they were right.
I know that on this Continent such
a definition would find less favour
than in England, and probably nine
women out of ten would turn up her
nose at the suggestion that she would
live for a day with such a husband.
But, if a practical test were applied,
it would be found that most women
considered the "interval of tenderness" ample payment for the "habitual harshness." It would also be
found that the men who plumb the
depths of human happiness have to
purchase this priceless treasure in
those moments of supreme tenderness which can only be aroused in
the! feminine nature at the rebound
froth a period of harshness.
I know that I shall be twitted with
presenting a purely English view, and
there may be among the lady readers
of The Week some who will say that
my theory is on a par with thc practice of wife-beating, which has been
so generally laid at the door of English husbands of a certain class; but
if my fair critics will look beneath
the surface and own up to the net
result of human experience in this
regard they will admit that there is
more truth in the definition under
discussion than is apparent, and that
not improbably many women have
missed their happiness because of
their unacquaintance with natural
laws  and  human  experiences,
I feel somewhat emboldened to
make these statements because I am
supported by a lady who has won her
spurs as one of thc most brilliant and
popular writers of the day. She does
not belong to the class where wife-
beaters are found, but moves in the
best social circles and has enjoyed
thc fullest opportunities for studying
men, and women in all their relations.
I refer to Elinor Glyn. This brilliant authoress is best remembered by
her "Elizabeth" books, which have a
slyle of their own, and which rank
with the most popular novels of the
day for raciness, keen observation
and accurate analysis of character.
Her latest book is easily the most
remarkable of thc scries. It is entitled "His Hour," is indited from
St. Petersburg and dedicated to H. I.
H. the Grand Duchess Vladimir of
Russia. It is a Russian story. While
the plot is interesting, it is extremely simple, being the working out of a
problem in whicii an English lady of
refinement and charm battles with a
Russian prince of magnetic force,
fierce impetuous temper, over-mastering will and primitive instincts. One
would suppose that such a contest
would hardly bc possible; that a cultured English lady would find no attraction in a man of this type, or in
any event that she would indignantly
throw him over at the first out-break
of brutality. Nothing of the kind;
that is where Elinor Glyn understands woman, and needless to say,
that with inimitable skill she sketches
the progress of the battle moving
from one vantage ground to another.
The woman is attracted in spite of
her better judgment and her wounded pride. In the earlier stages of
their acquaintance, before any love
passages have taken place, Prince
Gritzko, carried away by passion,
seizes her in his arms and presses
kisses, "hot, burning kisses," upon
her face and lips. What took place
is best described by the authoress:
"Tamara struggled against the intense intoxicating emotion she was
experiencing. What frightful tide was
this which had swept into her well-
ordered life? She vainly put up her
arms and tried to push him away,
but vvith each sign of revolt he held
her the tighter.
" 'Darling,' he said softly in her
ear, 'My little white soul. Do not
fight. It is perfectly useless, because
I will do what I wish. See, I will
be gentle and just caress you, if you
do not madden me by trying to resist!'
"Then he gathered her right into
his arms, and again bent and most
tenderly kissed her. All power of
movement seemed to desert Tamara.
She only knew that she was wildly
happy, that this was heaven, and she
would wish it never to end.
"She ceased struggling and closed
her eyes, then he whispered all sorts
of cooing love words in Russian and
French, and rubbed his velvety eyelids against her cheek, and every few
seconds his lips would come to meet
her lips."
One would think that after su«h
an episode an understanding would
have been arrived at, either one way
or another, but the difficulty was that
Tamara was over head and ears in
love with the Prince, while he had
not professed his love for her. And
as he was a notorious libertine she,
not inexcusably, concluded that he regarded her merely as another plaything.
Meanwhile, stung by her continued
repulses and apparent coldness, he
had registered a vow that he would
not confess his love until she had
surrendered, and so the battle continued. Time after time he tried to
wring a confession from her without
making one himself, and always
failed.
Then other suitors came on the
scene and he was madly jealous.
Driven to desperation, and having
been once again flouted by Tamara
who had adopted the dangerous expedient of flirting vvith his rivals, he
took advantage of the return from
a great function to carry her off to
his shooting box in the country.
Here a dramatic scene ensued.
Bearing her to an inner room prepared for her reception, he locked
the door and brutally avowed his determination to possess her there and
then, "body and soul."
In his embraces she swooned; when
she recovered she concluded that the
worst had happened and he maintained a distracted silence, for what
had really happened was this; her
physical weakness had opened his
eyes to his contemplated brutality.
The better side of his nature hall asserted itself, and instead of taking
advantage of her defenceless condition he had done his utmost to restore her to consciousness. The
only act of familiarity which he had
permitted himself was one of humility; he kissed her feet; a not improbable contingency, considering that
she was an English woman.
From this point to the end of the
book is intensely interesting and exciting.    Just  how far  the authoress
was justified in adopting so remark-;
able   an   expedient   may   well   be   a j
matter   of   question   as   well   as   of j
taste.    She now presents Tamara as;
cowed and broken-hearted.    Fully bc-1
licving that she had been the victim
of an  outrage  and  anticipating thej
probable  consequences  she listlessly
consents  to  marry thc  Prince, who
still maintains silence and allows her
to remain under a mistaken impression.
The* engagement was short, and the
marriage took place without enlightenment on tllis supreme subject.
Then hc carries her away to his ancestral home and after leading her
through salon 'after salon brilliantly
decorated vvith priceless treasures-of
art and vertu, he takes her into his
mother's rooms, which had not been
used since her death,
"Tamara," he said, "these were my
mother's rooms; I loved her very
much and I always thought I would
never let anyone, even my wife, enter
them. I have left them just as she
used them last, but I now I know
that that is not what she would have
wished. I want you to see them now
with me; I want my mother's blessing to rest on us, which it will do."
Then he paused, and there was a
wonderful silence, and when he went
on his tones were full of a great tenderness.
"Little one, in these rooms some
day I will make you happy."
Then this singular being led her to
a little sanctuary where a lamp
swung before the Ikon and fresh
lilies stood in a vase. He knelt and
whispered a prayer, then he rose and
they looked into each other's eyes
and their souls met, and all shadows
rolled away.
Still he kept back the secret and
demanded that she confess her love
—a love beyond everything, beyond
anger, beyond fear, beyond pride and
her answer was:
"Gritzko, do you think I care for
what you have done or will do? You
know very vvelT I have always loved
you," i'i.S
"Then the -glory of Paradise seemed to descend upon Tamara, as he
bent and kissed her lips.
"Oh, what did anything else matter in the world, since after all he
loved her! This beautiful, fierce
lover!
"Visions of enchantment presented
themselves—a complete intoxication
of joy.
"He held her in his arms, and all
the strange passion and mystic depths
which had fascinated her always, now
dwelt in his eyes, only intensified by
delirious love.
" 'Do you remember, Sweetheart,
how you defied and resisted me?
Darling! Heart of mine! but I
have conquered you and taken you
in spite of all! You cannot struggle
any more, you are my own. Only
you must tell me that you give me,
too, your soul. Ah! you said once
I should have no part or lot in that
matter. Tamara, tell me that I have
it?'
"And Tamara, thrilled with ecstasy
as she whispered, 'Yes, you have it.'
"She cared not at all about pride
—she did not wish to struggle, she
adored being conquered. Her entire
being was merged in his.
"He held her from him for a
second and the old whimsical smile
full of tender mischief stole into her
eyes.
" 'That night at the hut—when you
dropped the pistol when—don't you
want to know what really did happen?' he said.
"She buried her face in his scarlet
coat?
" 'Oh, no, no, no,' she cried. 'It is
all   forgotten   and  forgiven.'
"Then with wild passion he clasped
her to his breast.
" 'Oh, Love,' he said. 'My sweet
Princess; the gods are very kind to
us, for all happiness is yet to come—!
I did but kiss your little feet."
Some people will call this erotic,
some improbable, some unnatural,
but Elinor Glyn and the jury of matrons say, it is "woman," and who
will ever solve that ineffable and bewildering problem? For lovely woman is never so happy as when she
is making the man she adores miserable, unless possibly it be when she
is making recompense in tenderness.

Will they make him a Rajah, I wonder,
And grant him a special salute?
Will he  hold a Durbar at Secunder-

Will the morals of Simla distress him?
Will he highly approve of the Taj?
Will he visit Lord Hardinge and bless

Or boycott the Raj?
Will he scale with the ease of a squirrel
The perilous peaks of Nepal?
Will he back Mr.  Valentine Chlrol,
Will he stand by Keir Hardie, or fall?
Will he traverse the passes of Slkklm?
Will he track the wild ass to his lair?
When  he   sees  the  wild  pig,   will  he

Or will he forbear?
Will the Akhond of Swat's jubilation

APPEAL FOR THE FAMINE
SUFFERERS IN CHINA
Perhaps   readers   of   The   Week
luld like to hear how things are or
Ire a few weeks ago among our
Lr brethren in China.   The letters
lted were sent me from the China
land Mission.   We know much help
been sent from various cities and
I hope and pray that to some extent
suffering has been relieved.   But,
do let us  each  send something
our plenty to relieve the ter-
le  distress  caused  by  starvation.
Idly address anything you feel dis-
Ied to give to Miss Caroline Mack-

Irt and mind a realization of the

statements made by the press
jm time to time prove, however,
It there is a realization to some

Conditions as they exist can better
be understood through extracts from
the letters of those who are living
in the midst of the famine. Mr. Ferguson, of the China Inland Mission,
in Yingchowfu, Anhui, writes:
"Everything which can be used as
food is being requisitioned; the leave»
of the sweet potato vine, and the bean
cakes made of the pulp remaining after the oil has been extracted. A
great slaughter of cattle is taking
place, many people not having the
wherewithal to feed them through the
winter. All foods, except meat, are
advancing in price, and will doubtless
continue to do so until the harvest
in June."
Miss Waterman (of the same Mission) in Ta'ingkiang-pu, Kiangsu,
writes:
"Many are eating grain which
should be used as seed for the June
harvest. Numbers of respectable
families are having only one meal a
day, while many others are getting
a meal every other day, and are staying in bed alternate days to husband
their strength. They would work if
they could get it, but during the winter (at any time) work is scarce."
At a later date she writes:
"I hope some relief will soon be
given here; the poor people just
walked through the streets yesterday
and took anything that could be
eaten."
Dr. James B. Woods, of the American Presbyterian Mission, Southern
Board, writes of the Ts'ing-kiang-pu
district  as  follows:
"In several districts of this hsien
as well as in the neighbouring hsiens
of Tao-yuen and Shu-yang, the people are in a desperate way. From
50,000 to 75,000 people are said to be
starving in this country. In one district in which we worked in 1906-7
I have reports that at least 16,000
people must have help, or they will
starve this Spring; this is also true
of other  townships."
As you already know a committee
of business men, Chinese and Euro
pean, also missionaries, has been
formed in Shanghai for the receiving
and distributing of relief. A few extracts as given by the committee
might convey an idea of the methods
already adopted by some of the missionaries working in these districts,
as also of plan formed for giving
employment, and in a measure preventing a recurrence of the floods.
The committee, writing in the North
China Herald, says:
"Dr. Cochrane, of the American
Presbyterian Mission, who is labouring in the Province of Anhui, appealed for second-hand, padded clothing for immediate distribution, and
the committee was able to send the
needed quantity at once.
Dr. Junkin, of Suchien, Kiangsu,
was present at the last meeting, having come direct from the famine region. He showed the plan which had
been drawn up for digging a new
canal in order to relieve the Grand
Canal which this year overflowed
badly in Pocchow. Grain has been
purchased locally for distribution in
some of the centres. The gentry of
the affected provinces have raised
money independently of the committee."
The editor of the Chinese Recorder
writes:
"The opening of the Tienisin-Pu-
kow Railway, as far as Lin-hwai-kuan,
in Anhui, will help the transportation
of grain, but the North Kiangsu region must still grow sick at heart
waiting for junks to be towed up the
Grand  Canal."
Missionaries throughout the famine
stricken region, some of whom have
already had experience of the famine
of 1906-7, are again throwing themselves into the work-of relief. They
know full well the toll of missionary
lives exacted by the previous famine,
but they gladly offer themselves, if
by any means they may save some.
Our prayers should daily ascend in
their behalf as well as for those sufferers to whom they seek to minister. 1
TOPICAL  TRIFLES-XXI.
(By Onlooker)
The peculiarities of Englishmen 011
the Continent have formed an amusing theme for a theatrical entertainment known as La Femme et le Pan-
tin," at the Theatre Antoine in Paris.
Respectable England lacks the spici-
ness the Englishman finds, or thinks
he finds, in gay Paree, and the choicest scene in "La Femme et le Pantin"
shows La Femme rehearsing a dance
in a Salome costume before a bunch
of typical Britishers in Norfolk jackets and tweed caps, who think they
are having a h—1 of a time. At the
conclusion of the dance when the
frantic contortions of La Femme
have completely disarranged thc Salome costume, the Englishmen arise
vvith the exclamation, "Shocking!
Shocking!" and solemnly make their
exit, amid roars of laughter from thc
froggy audience who thoroughly appreciate the skit on the Englishmen,
who for all their superiority, are much
the same as other male specimens of
humanity. An insinuation is conveyed that the Englishman is not all he
pretends to be, or that in his own
country he is a prude. That this is
not the case should bc readily granted, as the Englishman is almost too
ready to say exactly what he thinks,
and if he is guilty of a little gaiety
sub rosa it had just as well be in
Paris as in London. In Victoria we
are satisfied with musical comedy
trimmed down to insipidity, varied
by a night of polite vaudeville." Is it
surprising that the traffic on thc
Sound boats is heavy? Thanks to Oak
Bay the sports will have a chance to
see the ponies go round and round at
the Willows trnck this summer.

Why does not some important person start a craze for better bread in
this part of the world? Standard
bread made of whole meal is the rage
in   the  Old World  and  experiments
have shown it to be very much more
nutritious than thc over refined white
bread. Experiments were made with
rats, and the rats which were fed on
bread made from the coarser flour
waxed fat more quickly than those
fed on pure white. In local bakeries
the high price of coal seems to be a
trouble, but it is written, "Bread is
the staff of life," and nothing was
said about stodge.

The Royal Victoria Yacht Club is
making quite a splash nowadays. As
a Royal Yacht Club's boats may be
called upon for active service in time
of war, thc yachtsmen, no doubt, are
getting ready for business with their

States will not have a chance at an
annexation  stunt.

be afforded. It evinces careful study
and preparation and if the members
of the Victoria Debating Society as
a rule devote as much time and;
trouble to the preparation of the material for tlieir debates, they will more
than justify the existence of their

His Hour
BY BOHEMIAN
About twenty years ago a leading
English journal offered a prize for
a definition of the kind of husband
that women like best. The adjudication rested with a jury of matrons
and the prize was awarded to a well-
known novelist for the following definition. "Women like a husband best
who treats them with habitual harshness—with intervals of tenderness."
Loud was the out-cry at the apparent barbarism of this definition, but
the jury stood by their decision and
on the whole it was considered that
they were right.
I know that on this Continent such
a definition would find less favour
than in England, and probably nine
women out of ten would turn up her
nose at the suggestion that she would
live for a day with such a husband.
But, if a practical test were applied,
it would be found that most women
considered the "interval of tenderness" ample payment for the "habitual harshness." It would also be
I found that the men who plumb the
depths of human happiness have to
purchase this priceless treasure in
those moments of supreme tenderness which can only be aroused in
the! feminine nature at the rebound
from a period of harshness.
I know that I shall be twitted with
presenting a purely English view, and
there may be among the lady readers
of The Week some who will say that
my theory is on a par with the practice of wife-beating, which has been
so generally laid at the door of English husbands of a certain class; but
if my fair critics will look beneath
the surface and own up to the net
result of human experience in this
regard they will admit that there is
more truth in the definition under
discussion than is apparent, and that
not improbably many women have
missed their happiness because of
their unacquaintance with natural
laws and  human  experiences.
I feel somewhat emboldened to
make these statements because I am
supported by a lady who has won her
spurs as one of the most brilliant and
popular writers of the day. She does
not belong to the class where wife-
beaters are found, but moves in the
best social circles and has enjoyed
thc fullest opportunities for studying
men. and women in all their relations.
I refer to Elinor Glyn. This brilliant authoress is best remembered by
her "Elizabeth" books, which have a
style of their own, and which rank
with the most popular novels of the
day for raciness, keen observation
and accurate analysis of character.
Her latest book is easily thc most
remarkable of the scries. It is entitled "His Hour," is indited from
St. Petersburg and dedicated to H. I.
H, the Grand Duchess Vladimir of
Russia. It is a Russian story. While
the plot is interesting, it is extremely simple, being the working out of a
problem in which an English lady of
refinement and charm battles with a
Russian prince of magnetic force,
fierce impetuous temper, over-mastering will and primitive instincts. One
would suppose that such a contest
would hardly bc possible; that a cultured English lady would find no attraction in a man of this type, or in
any event that she would indignantly
throw him over at thc first out-break
of brutality. Nothing of the kind;
that is where Elinor Glyn understands woman, and needless  to say,
that with inimitable skill she sketches
the progress of the battle moving
from one vantage ground to another.
The woman is attracted in spite of
her better judgment and her wounded pride, ln the earlier stages of
their acquaintance, before any love
passages have taken place, Prince
Gritzko, carried away by passion,
seizes her in his arms and presses
kisses, "hot, burning kisses," upon
her face and lips. What took place
is best described by the authoress:
"Tamara struggled against the intense intoxicating emotion she was
experiencing. What frightful tide was
this which had swept into her well-
ordered life? She vainly put up her
arms and tried to push him away,
but with each sign of revolt he held
her the tighter.
" 'Darling,' he said softly in her
ear, 'My little white soul. Do not
fight. It is perfectly useless, because
I will do what I wish. See, I will
be gentle and just caress you, if you
do not madden me by trying to resist!'
"Then he gathered her right into
his arms, and again bent and most
tenderly kissed her. All power of
movement seemed to desert Tamara.
She only knew that she was wildly
happy, that this was heaven, and she
would wish it never to end.
"She ceased struggling and closed
her eyes, then he whispered all sorts
of cooing love words in Russian and
French, and rubbed his velvety eyelids against her cheek, and every few
seconds his lips would come to meet
her lips."
One would think that after su«h
an episode an understanding would
have been arrived at, either one way
or another, but the difficulty was that
Tamara was over head and ears in
love with the Prince, while he had
not professed his love for her. And
as he was a notorious libertine she,
not inexcusably, concluded that he regarded her merely as another plaything.
Meanwhile, stung by her continued
repulses and apparent coldness, he
had registered a vow that he would
not confess his love until she had
surrendered, and so the battle continued. Time after time he tried to
wring a confession from her without
making one himself, and always
failed.
Then other suitors came on the
scene and he was madly jealous.
Driven to desperation, and having
been once again flouted by Tamara
who had adopted the dangerous expedient of flirting with his rivals, he
took advantage of the return from
a great function to carry her off to
his shooting box in the country.
Here a dramatic scene ensued.
Bearing her to an inner room prepared for her reception, he locked
the door and brutally avowed his determination to possess her there and
then, "body and soul."
In his embraces she swooned; when
she recovered she concluded that the
worst had happened and he maintained a distracted silence, for what
had really happened was this; her
physical weakness had opened his
eyes to his contemplated brutality.
The better side of his nature had asserted itself, and instead of taking
advantage of her defenceless condition he had done his utmost to restore her to consciousness. The
only act of familiarity which hc had
permitted himself was one of humility; he kissed her feet; a not improbable contingency, considering that
she was an English woman.
From this point to the end of the
book is intensely interesting and exciting. Just how far thc authoress
was justified in adopting so remarkable an expedient may well be a
matter of question as well as of
taste. She now presents Tamara as
cowed and broken-hearted. Fully believing that she had been the victim j
of an outrage and anticipating the
probable consequences she listlessly
consents to marry the Prince, who
still maintains silence and allows her
to remain under a mistaken impression.
The engagement was short, and the
marriage took place without enlightenment on this supreme subject.
Then hc carries her away to his ancestral home and after leading her
through salon 'after salon brilliantly
decorated with priceless treasure-of
art and vertu, he takes her into his
mother's rooms, which had not been
used since her death.
"Tamara," he said, "these were my
mother's rooms; I loved her very
much and I always1 thought I would
never let anyone, even my wife, enter
them. I have left them just as she
used them last, but I now I know
that that is not what she would have
wished. I want you to see them now
with me; I want my mother's blessing to rest on us, which it will do."
Then he paused, and there was a
wonderful silence, and when he went
on his tones were full of a great tenderness.
"Little one, in these rooms some
day I will make you happy."
Then this singular being led her to
a little sanctuary where a lamp
swung before the Ikon and fresh
lilies stood in a vase. He knelt and
whispered a prayer, then he rose and
they looked into each other's eyes
and their souls met, and all shadows
rolled away.
Still he kept back the secret and
demanded that she confess her love
—a love beyond everything, beyond
anger, beyond fear, beyond pride and
her answer was: ....
"Gritzko, do you think I care for
what you have done or will do? You
know very well I have always loved
you,"       /'"._
"Then t\i_ -glory of Paradise seemed to descend upon Tamara, as he
bent and kissed her lips.
"Oh, what did anything else matter in the world, since after all he
loved her! This beautiful, fierce
lover!
"Visions of enchantment presented
themselves—a complete intoxication
of joy.
"He held her in his arms, and all
the strange passion and mystic depths
which had fascinated her always, now
dwelt in his eyes, only intensified by
delirious love.
" 'Do you remember, Sweetheart,
how you defied and resisted me?
Darling! Heart of mine! but I
have conquered you and taken you
in spite of all! You cannot struggle
any more, you are my own. Only
you must tell me that you give me,
too, your soul. Ah! you said once
I should have no part or lot in that
matter. Tamara, tell me that I have
it?'
"And Tamara, thrilled with ecstasy
as she whispered, 'Yes, you have it.'
"She cared not at all about pride
—she did not wish to struggle, she
adored being conquered. Her entire
being was merged in his.
"He held her from him for a
second and the old whimsical smile
full of tender mischief stole into her
eyes.
"That night at the hut—when you
dropped the pistol when—don't you
want to know what really did happen?' he said.
"She buried her face in his scarlet
coat?
'"Oh, no, no, no,' she cried. 'It is
all   forgotten   and   forgiven.'
"Then with wild passion he clasped
her to his breast.
" 'Oh, Love,' he said. 'My sweet
Princess; the gods are very kind to
us, for all happiness is yet to come—!
I did but kiss your little feet."
Some people will call this erotic,
some improbable, some unnatural,
but Elinor Glyn and the jury of matrons say, it is "woman," and who
will ever solve that ineffable and bewildering problem? For lovely woman is never so happy as when she
is making the man she adores miserable, unless possibly it be when she
is making recompense in tenderness.

APPEAL FOR THE FAMINE
SUFFERERS IN CHINA
[Perhaps   readers   of   The   Week
uld like to hear how things are or
re a few weeks ago among our
>r brethren in China.   The letters
)ted were sent me from the China
and Mission.   We know much help
I been sent from various cities and
hope and pray that to some extent
suffering has been relieved.   But,
do let us each send something
our plenty to relieve the ter-
e  distress  caused  by  starvation,
jidly address anything you feel disced to give to Miss Caroline Mack-
1, 1126 Richardson street, Victoria,
■Vord pictures, however vividly
I-trayed, are immeasurably inade-
Itte, when one wishes to bring to
Irt and mind a realization of the
■ful suffering and need throughout
famine district of China at this
ie. The hearty and practical re-
Imse which has come because of
I statements made by the press
Im time to time prove, however,
It there is a realization to some
lent.
fhe section affected by the famine
■North Anhui and North Kiangau,
lith-West to North-East. This
Ition is probably one hundred miles
] length, and only a little less in
ladth.
She causes of the present need are
livy and continued rains, silted
lers, and a densely populated coun-
It is stated that in one section
Ire are 1,400 people to the square
le. Between two and three mil-
Ins of people are on the verge of
Irvation.
In severity the famine exceeds that
j 1906-7; a part of the same area
laffected again, and since that time
Ire has been a succession of poor
lips, so that the people, many of
lorn are poor at any time, were
lolly unprepared for this present
|amity.
Conditions as they exist can better
be understood through extracts from
the letters of those who are living
in the midst of the famine. Mr. Ferguson, of the China Inland Missior.,
in Yingchowfu, Anhui, writes;
"Everything which can be used as
food is being requisitioned; the leave-
of the sweet potato vine, and the bean
cakes made of the pulp remaining after the oil has been extracted. A
great slaughter of cattle is taking
place, many people not having the
wherewithal to feed them through the
winter. All foods, except meat, are
advancing in price, and will doubtless
continue to do so until the harvest
in June."
Miss Waterman (of the same Mission) in Ta'ingkiang-pu, Kiangsu,
writes;
"Many are eating grain which
should be used as seed for the June
harvest. Numbers of respectable
families are having only one meal a
day, while many others are getting
a meal every other day, and are staying in bed alternate days to husband
their strength. They would work if
they could get it, but during the winter (at any time) work is scarce."
At a later date she writes;
"I hope some relief will soon be
given here; the poor people just
walked through the streets yesterday
and took anything that could be
eaten."
Dr. James B. Woods, of the American Presbyterian Mission, Southern
Board, writes of the Ts'ing-kiang-pu
district as  follows:
"In several districts of this hsien
as well as in the neighbouring hsiens
of Tao-yuen and Shu-yang, the people are in a desperate way. From
50,000 to 75,000 people are said to be
starving in this country. In one district in which we worked in 1906-7
I have reports that at least 16,000
people must have help, or they will
starve this Spring; this is also true
of other townships."
As you already know a committee
of business men, Chinese and Euro
pean, also missionaries, has been
formed in Shanghai for the receiving
and distributing of relief. A few extracts as given by the committee
might convey an idea of the methods
already adopted by some of the missionaries working in these districts,
as also of plan formed for giving
employment, and in a measure preventing a recurrence of the floods.
The committee, writing in the North
China Herald, says;
"Dr. Cochrane, of the American
Presbyterian Mission, who is labouring in the Province of Anhui, appealed for second-hand, padded clothing for immediate distribution, and
the committee was able to send the
needed quantity at once.
Dr. Junkin, of Suchien, Kiangsu,
was present at thc last meeting, having come direct from the famine region. He showed the plan which had
been drawn up for digging a new
canal in order to relieve the Grand
Canal which this year overflowed
badly in Pocchow. Grain has been
purchased locally for distribution in
some of the centres. The gentry of
the affected provinces have raised
money independently of the committee."
Thc editor of the Chinese Recorder
writes:    ■
"The opening of the Tienisin-Pu-
kovv Railway, as far as Lin-hwai-kuan,
in Anhui, will help the transportation
of grain, but the North Kiangsu region must still grow sick at heart
waiting for junks to be towed up the
Grand  Canal."
Missionaries throughout the famine
stricken region, some of whom have
already had experience of the famine
of 1906-7, are again throwing themselves into thc work "of relief. They
know full well the toll of missionary
lives exacted by the previous famine,
but they gladly offer themselves, if
by any means they may save some.
Our prayers should daily ascend in
their behalf as well as for those sufferers to whom they seek to minister.
TOPICAL TRIFLES-XXI.
(By Onlooker)
The peculiarities of Englishmen 011
the Continent have formed an amusing theme for a theatrical entertainment known as La Femme et le Pin-
tin," at the Theatre Antoine in Paris.
Respectable England lacks the spici-
ness the Englishman finds, or thinks
he finds, in gay Paree, and the choicest scene in "La Femme et le Pantin"
shows La Femme rehearsing a dance
in a Salome costume before a bunch
of typical Britishers in Norfolk jackets and tweed caps, who think they
are having a h—1 of a time. At the
conclusion of the dance when the
frantic contortions of La Femme
have completely disarranged the Salome costume, the Englishmen arise
vvith the exclamation, "Shocking!
Shocking!" and solemnly make their
exit, amid roars of laughter from the
froggy audience who thoroughly appreciate the skit on the Englishmen,
who for all their superiority, are much
the same as other male specimens of
humanity. An insinuation is conveyed that the Englishman is not all he
pretends to be, or that in his own
country he is a prude. That this is
not thc case should bc readily granted, as the Englishman is almost too
ready to say exactly what he thinks,
and if he is guilty of a little gaiety
sub rosa it had just as well bc in
Paris as in London. In Victoria we
are satisfied with musical comedy
trimmed down to insipidity, varied
by a night of polite vaudeville." Is it
surprising that the traffic on the
Sound boats is heavy? Thanks to Oak
Bay the sports will have a chance to
see the ponies go round and round at
the Willows track this summer.

Why does not some important person start a craze for better bread in
this part of the world? Standard
bread made of whole meal is the rage
in the Old World and experiments
have shown it to be very much more
nutritious than the over refined white
bread. Experiments were made with
rats, and the rats which were fed on
bread made from the coarser flour
waxed fat more quickly than those
fed on pure white. In local bakeries
the high price of coal seems to be a
trouble, but it is written, "Bread is
the staff of life," and nothing was
said about stodge.

The Royal Victoria Yacht Club is
making quite a splash nowadays. As
a Royal Yacht Club's boats may be
called upon for active service in time
of war, the yachtsmen, no doubt, are
getting ready for business with their
cutlasses and belaying pins so the
States will not have a chance at an
annexation  stunt.
The Victoria Debating Society
At the last meeting of the Victoria
Debating Society a very excellent
paper was read by Mr. A. T. Weight
on the subject; "Will the Orient Ever
Be Supreme?" The paper is too
lengthy to publish in the columns of
The Week or the space would gladly
bc afforded. It evinces careful study
and preparation and if the members
of thc Victoria Debating Society as
a rule devote as much time and!
trouble to the preparation of the material for their debates, they will more
than justify the existence of their
Society.
£28,197,000 in Smoke
Mr. R. P. Moncrieff of Gosforth,
Newcastle, has calculated the consumption of tobacco in the kingdom
last year. The total amount smoked
was 91 1-3 million lb., costing £28,-
197,000. The increase over 1909 was
2,4U,35S lb. smoked and £1,301,000
paid out. Calculated per head of
population, the return shows that each
person smoked just over 2 lb. in the
year. The cost was 12s. 4*^ d., or,
roughly, £2 17s. per family.

REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
Messrs. Johnson & Clark, a real estate firm, which has just
amalgamated with the firm of Messrs. William Monteith & Company, is responsible for the following sales: Two pieces of property with frontages on Blanchard street, a lot on Chatham street,
two lots on Edmonton road, one lot on First Street, a waterfront
lot at the Willows beach, a bungalow on Amphiori street, three lots
in the Fairfield estate, two lots in the Parkdale subdivision, and a
lot on Victor street!
Messrs. Swinerton and Musgrave have sold the corner lot .on
Belleville and Oswego streets, and some seventy acres in the
Westwood Farm subdivision the latter at an aggregate price of
$25,000.
A lot on Douglas street measuring 60x60 feet, next the Commercial Hotel and nearly opposite the City Hall has been sold for
$40,000. A lot on Yates street next the stable owner by Mr.
Stephen Jones, measuring 60x120 feet, has been put through the
market for $36,000. Both these deals were negotiated by Mr. R.
W.Clarke.
Capt. Mcintosh, real estate agent, is responsible for the following sales: One house on Denman street, $5,350; two lots on
j Speed street; five lots in the Fairfield Estate, $6,250; half an acre
on Carroll street, $1,500; lot on Cook street, $2,000; five lots on
Shelbourne street, $2,100; half acre on Graham street, $1,000; one
acre Dublin street; two lots Fairfield road, $3,500, and half an acre
I on Alder street, $1,100.
Among the latest real estate transfers reported are: a lot on
I the northwest corner of Fort and Vancouver street for $19,000;
la lot, measuring 60x120 feet, on Herald west of Douglas street for
$15,000 and the residence of Captain Gaudin on the Craigflower
lroad for a figure in the neighbourhood of $9,000. All the subdivisions now on the market are selling well, a feature of the present
[activity of the faith of small investors in the future of the city and
vicinity.
CONSIDER PROPOSITION TO PURCHASE
At a meeting of the directors of the Nootka Marble Quarries,
I Limited, a proposition from the Earth Trusts, Limited, was considered for lease of the marble properties, for three years at a rental
[of $500 per month, with option to purchase for $163,000, payable
I$50,000 within three days of election to purchase, and the balance in
Ithree equal annual instalments with interest at 5 per cent, until
[paid. An extraordinary general meeting of the company is set for,
[April 6 to take this and other matters into consideration. The
[extensive holdings of the Marble Company are well known, and
[many enquiries have been made during the last few months as to
Itheir price. This is just one more indication that the eye of the
Iinvestor is being turned to British Columbia.
BRITISH COLUMBIA'S CHEERFUL OUTLOOK
FOR CURRENT YEAR
The Canadian Mining Journal says nearly every mineral producing province had a record year and adds, "It is hardly necessary
Ito state that the outlook for the current year is even more cheerful.
JBritish Columbia's smelters, mines, and collieries are in better condition than ever. Her smelters are being enlarged, and there is
[good reason to believe that large iron and steel industries will soon
Ibe established on the Pacific coast. Few countries possess such a
■superabundance of iron ore, fuel, and flux on or near tide-water.
■All the essentials are there except the initiative of the organizer."

FORT STREET ARBITRATION
The arbitration proceedings between the city and the owners
of the Balmoral Hotel, a portion of which premises will be taken
for street widening purposes on Fort street, has been concluded
after the hearing of a considerable quantity of evidence. The
award is expected in a few days. The owners put in a claim for
compensation amounting to $29,783 while the city offered $13,594.
The arbitrators were Mr. P. R. Brown for the city, Mr. J. J. Shall-
. cross for the-owners, and Mr. R. S. Day, referee. Mr. E. V. Bodwell, K.C., appeared for the owners and City Solicitor McDiarmid
for the city.
But one more arbitration is needed,to complete the settlement
, of claims made by Fort street owners under the street widening
scheme.   The claim of Dr. O. M. Jones will now be proceeded with.
BELL 'PHONE BONDS TO BE ISSUED SOON
As announced in The Montreal Star the other day, $1,250,000
additional bonds of the Bell Telephone Company of Canada will
shortly be issued jointly by the Royal Securities Corporation,
Limited, in Canada, and Higginson & Co. in London, England.
The proceeds from the bonds will be used for the extension of
the Telephone Company's plant generally.
The present outstanding bonds are listed on the Montreal Stock
Exchange.
BANK ACT REVISION MAY BE DELAYED
Whether the new Banking Act will be proceeded with this
session, or left over until next year and the charters extended pro
forma for twelve months, is an open question. It depends considerably upon the reciprocity debate. If the discussion on this
subject is long continued, as there is every indication, the work of
revision is likely to go over.
Representatives of Bankers' Association saw Hon. Mr. Fields
ing regarding the matter last night, but learned nothing definite.
It is understood also that representations have been made by the
association in regard to the name La Banque du Canada, which will
come up in the House on Tuesday.
TO ERECT SMELTER AT GOOSE BAY
0. B. Smith, Jr., superintendent of the.Granby Consolidated
Co., arrived in Vancouver recently on a trip to the Hidden creek
copper-gold claims on Observatory Inlet, Portland canal group,
which is under bond to his concern for $400,000 and on which a
large cash payment is due in June. He says that Boyle Bros, of
Spokane have had a force of 20 men with three diamond drills at
work in cross-cutting and drifting through the winter vw-h satisfactory showings. The Granby company will have a report on the
property by an independent expert before closing the deal, but if
the purchase is made low grade ore from the mine will be treated
at a smelter to be erected at Goose Bay.
POPULATION NOW RAPIDLY GROWING
Thirty-five thousand is the number by which the population
of western Canada has been increased by immigration since January 1, 1911. This indicates the tune to which settlers have been
pouring into western Canada from all parts of the globe, according
to James Walker, superintendent of immigration, during the past
few weeks for it is only recently that the influx began to assume
such large proportions.
March 21 constituted probably the biggest day this season
over 1,000 arriving in the city from the east and south and bound
for western Canada. But even this figure will be outstripped
during the next few weeks, when the thousands now embarking in
England and on the continent arrive here.
BOTH OPPOSE RECIPROCITY
Two well-known provincial politicians have recently expressed
their views with regard to reciprocity, and both condemn it severely.
The first was JV- E. Scott, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, who in
an interview at Nelson, reported in the Daily News, said: "I am
very hotly opposed to the reciprocity agreement and consider that
if it becomes law it will work a very great hardship on the fruitgrowers of British Columbia. I do not propose to deal in extenso
with the subject here, but it would simply work out in this manner:
The cost of production in Washington and Oregon from figures
obtained from the large fruit growing centres is 45 cents per box.
The cost of labour and of all material, including implements used
in production in this province is fully 50 per cent higher than on
the Southern side of the international boundary line, consequently
it costs us in British Columbia 60 cents a box to produce our fruit.
Remove the duty of 13 cents a box and with freight rates about
equal as they are, it means that the Washington and Oregon producer could sell fruit in Winnipeg, f.o.b. ranch, at 50 cents and
put five cents per box in his pocket, whereas the British Columbia
•grower, in order to compete 'with the pomologist on the American
side, would have to dig down and take ten cents out of his pocket
in order to sell in the prairie capital. But everything points to the
fact that the agreement will not go through, and I sincerely hope
it will not."

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APEIL 1, 1911
The second to state his views was J. H. Schofield, M.P.P., for
Ymir, who, at a banquet in his honour at Slocan Junction, said this
measure gave actual reciprocity between Canada and the United
States in some articles, and theYe were some small reductions in
duty on others. British Columbia was not to be parochial, and to
take a broad Dominion outlook. Yet how was the sentiment of
the Dominion as a whole to be known if the individual sections did
not express their opinion in regard to the effect of the treaty on
their individual industries? The chief industries of British
Columbia were the lumber, fruit, and mining industries. On the
two former the general opinion was well known. As a sample of
competition in lumber, when receiving bids for the bridge at Creston the other day, the government agent found no bids below $20
for bridge timber. He ascertained, however, that the timber could
be bought in Creston for $14.50, and investigation disclosed that
this latter was American timber, this price covering freight and
agent's commission. As to fruit, he could buy in Trail, if he
wished, excellent .American fruit, which, including 13 cents duty,
3 cents freight/ and agent's commission, was worth $1.18. Did
these two examples of lumber and fruit look like better prices in
consequence of the reciprocity treaty? The agitation that the fruit
growers raised had done good, and, like the fly that bit the elephant
on the tail, they might make him look around. There was considerable agitation by Liberals, as well as by Conservatives, against
the reciprocity measure, and if by any means the treaty could possibly be stopped, they should do it. In respect to fisheries the
province would not gain, for the fisheries were in the hands of the
Japanese. If the government had been going to benefit British
Columbia, why would it not take off the 2 cent duty on zinc ores?
They could only hope that the reciprocity measure would be effectively delayed till it was submitted to the people in a referendum,
or otherwise.
THE FALLING CREDIT OF THE G. T. PACIFIC
Windermere pointed out the other day that the recent issue of
Grand Trunk Pacific bonds in London was the tenth since the
formation of the project in 1903. . In all the road has asked John
Bull to buy £16,900,000 worth of securities.
There have been three issues of 3 per cent, bonds, guaranteed
by the Canadian Government, and the present issue form the
seventh of 4 per cents.   The dates of all these issues, their amounts
and the issue prices, have been as follows:—
Three Per Cents
Date. Amount     Issue Price
March, 1905 — — £3,200,000 95
July, 1909  .\    2,000,000 82^

Thus the company is now obtaining its capital on considerably
less favorable terms than four years ago.   The present issue price
is the lowest ever obtained for mortgage bonds; the issue placed at
90 per cent, consisted of debenture stock ranking after these.
John Bull, no doubt, very wisely figures that reciprocity will
do the Grand Trunk Pacific no good.
P. BURNS & CO.
The Dominion Securities Corporation, Limited, is offering an
issue -of bonds on the properties of P. Burns & Company.
The well-planned distribution of the properties of this Company ensures two advantages; ist, a ready outlet for the Company's products and a steady business on them, because the demand
being scattered through two provinces does not depend on any
single or few cities; 2nd, quickly convertible assets, because these
properties, numbering close to a hundred different parcels in good
locations, could be quickly sold; where property of equal value but
in one parcel would undoubtedly wait long for a buyer.
Therefore, in considering the 20-year 6 per cent, bonds issued
by this Company, it is gratifying to note that the business itself is
laid out to ensure steady demand and -steady earnings; also that
the ample assets, should occasion ever require, are of the quick
variety.
In addition to over 19,000 acres of choice farm lands in Alberta,
on the lines of railroad, P. Burns & Company own abattoirs,
packing plants, wharfs, corrals, warehouses, stables, cold storage
plants and 76 retail stores.
These properties are distributed in such prosperous towns and
cities as Calgary, Edmonton, Wetaskiwin, Lethbridge, Fernie,
Kamloops, Revelstoke, Nelson, Vancouver and Victoria.

MINING IN CARIBOO
The outlook for hydraulic mining in Cariboo district during
l^'coming season is excellent owing to the heavy snowfall of the
list winter, according to J. B. Hobson, a veteran mining operator
^ictoria. Mr. Hobson has been engaged in placer mining for
Hit a century. His home is in Victoria. He will take charge this
ll_iSon of his hydraulic claims o f240 acres at Cresta Blanca,
banish Creek, in the Cariboo district. His plant comprises 1200
ret of flume, a pipe line with a head of 200 feet and 4000 feet of
•pe*. The locations are said to be unusually rich. They comprise
|jd benches adjacent to an ample water supply. Mr. Hobson
Itpects to start operations early in July.
SMELTER CITY HAS EXCELLENT WORD
The Financial Post of Toronto, one of the leading financial
lapers of the Dominion of Canada, contains the following brief
|nd illuminating reference of the city of Trail:
"The financial statement of the city of Trail, B.C., presents
lonclusive evidence of a desire to conduct the city's finance in a
tiisinesslike way, and reflects credit on the responsible officials.
fhe quality of management plays an important part in determin-
a city's credit in financial centres and incidentally affects the
|Hce of bonds.
The outlook for development in this city is favorable.   General
business, is in good condition.   The pay roll of the Consolidated
lining and Smelting Co. of Canada, whose head office and main
(riant are located here, amounts to upwards of $50,000 per month,
jind the C. P. R. disburses  approximately $7,000 per month  in
vages.   Further evidence to development is found in the recent
rant of $20,000 from the Provincial Government for the erection
|jf a new school, to be duplicated by a similar sum from the city.
bridge across the Columbia river is in course of construction by
lhe Provincial-Government, costing about $100,000, which, when
completed, will open up a new fruit and vegetable district to the
tarket district to the market at Trail."
NICKEL PLATE MINE
The directors of the Hedley Gold Mining Co., at their head
jffice in New York March Sth, declared the usual quarterly dividend
af 3 per cent, and an extra dividend of 2 per cent, on the under-
Standing stock of the company payable on March 31st. The books
closed March 16th at 3 p.m. and will remain closed until April ist
at 10 a.m.
When the extra dividend of 2 per cent, was paid at the end of
[December last it was thought that this extra bon bon was given
Iduring the Christmas period as a sort of holiday gift to stock-
Iholders,, but its repetition now, three months later, puts a different
Race on the matter and indicates very clearly that this is the gait
Ithey have struck under present operating conditions and the present
Icondition of the mine.
Five per cent.'quarterly is certainly hitting it off to a lively tune
Ithat must appear catchy and attractive to the fortunate stockholder and he concerns which are paying 20 per cent, today are
I few and far between.
The new plant is now in operation and while a few weeks may
J.be required for adjustment in order to get their full duty, there is
Iho doubt that the effects in the way of securing a material saving
I in extraction are already apparent and accounts for the increased'
I dividend. When the water is sufficient to enable them to dispense
with the steam auxiliary plant the profits will be still greater.
MINING BOOM PREDICTED ON GRAND
TRUNK PACIFIC
It was learned at fhe Grand Trunk Pacific offices on March
24 that reports have been received from prospectors that vast quantities of rich minerals have been discovered along the main line of
the railway which runs through the Yellowhead Pass on the
western slope of the Rocky mountains. Silver, iron and copper
have been found about 50 miles beyond Tete Jaune Cache, and it
' may be expected that great mining developments will take place
in this district.
ORE FOR SHIPMENT AT AINSWORTH MINES
A large car of silver-lead ore is now ready at the Maestro mine
at Ainsworth. There will have to be considerable repairing done
on the road before this ore can be moved to the wharf for shipment. It is reported that orders have been given for culverts to
be placed in several places, and much repairing all along the road,
to be completed soon as possible.
The Maestro mine is owned by H. Giegerich of Kaslo and is
being leased by Grant Brothers. This car will make a total amount
of about 150 tons already shipped this winter. The lessees say
that the mine is looking just as good as ever and that a number of
shipments will be made this summer.
Word has just been received from No. 1 mine that a car will
be ready for shipment just as soon as the road is in shape to haul
it down.   The No. 1 ore runs high in silver and is chiefly carbonates.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 1911
THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE
VICTORIA AND ESQUIMALT
NAVY LEAGUE
But for the grievous loss of May,
1910, which we shared with the whole
British people, the year just passed
has been the best and most successful, as it was the busiest, that this
-branch has hitherto known.
Our numbers this year are greater than they have ever been before.
We have extended the influence of
■our branch far beyond our borders,
we have kept the Press supplied with
material connected with our movement, and we have had many signs
that our work has not been wasted.
Five years ago we pleaded that
Canada ought to contribute.
She has contributed.
We argued in favour of a Canadian
Navy.
A part of it is at Esquimalt today.
In 1908-9 we pleaded for a dry dock
at Esquimalt.
It is publicly announced that one
is to be built there at once.
Of course, we have had our clouds
together with our sunshine,' the
heaviest of Ithem -after that great
National loss to which he have re-
. ferred, was caused by the death of
the most valued of our Committee
men (a former President of the
branch), Mr. J. K. Rebbeck, an enthusiast always ready to work, and
an authority upon Naval Construction, upon whom his colleagues
' could unhesitatingly rely.
Mr. Rebbeck's Memorandum upon
the merits of Esquimalt as a site for
a dry dock submitted at the League's
request to the experts and authorities upon both sides of the Atlantic,
will be fresh in the memory of all,
and it seems cruel that the man who
did so much to promote the building
of the dry dock, should not have
lived to help in the completion of
tne work.
To turn again to the happier side
of our subject.
In the preceding year we added
forty-two new members to our
branch, and had one hundred and
twenty-one fully paid up members on
I our books. This year, we have add-
ed thirty-seven more new members
and fifty-seven associates to our
numbers, and have a total strength
of one hundred and forty-one.
But in addition to this, the Victoria branch may fairly claim to have
founded three other branches in British Columbia—Vernon, Salt Spring
Island (13S members), and Duncan
(160 members), and has a right to be
especially proud of Salt Spring, which
has a larger membership in comparison to its population than any other
Navy League centre, and sets an example to all in its energy and devotion to the cause.
One of our old Committee men,
Mr. Woollett, has collected a small
body of Leaguers in the islands
among which he now lives, and our
President reports that at least two
other important centres are likely to
be represented in our body by
branches in the next few months.
Any action tending to stir up Nanaimo and New Westminster and add
them to the cities of the Navy League
would be exceedingly welcome.
During the past year 7 regular
Committee meetings havc been held,
besides several special meetings at
Victoria.
The Treasurer's statement will
show that the finances of the League
are in a satisfactory condition, and
that the various obligations of the
branch, including the Nelson wreath,
have been duly discharged.
In April, the Duncans branch was
formed, our President accepting the
office of Honorary President temporarily, and speaking at the Inaugural
meeting on April 19th, as he did at
the Inaugural meeting of the Salt
Spring branch on June 16th. Captain
W. H. Langley, one of our Vice-Presidents, held another highly successful meeting at Salt Spring in December.
During the year several attempts
were made to found branches at Nanaimo, New Westminster, Saanich,
Nelson and Kamloops. The President visited Nanaimo twice for this
purpose, but, although it was confi
dently expected that some of these
towns will eventually come into the
League, none have yet done so.
In addition to the above-mentioned
events, our President has addressed
during the year, various scholastic
establishments, including Upper Canada College, and by request, such
bodies as The Daughters of the Empire, and was honoured by being
chosen to deliver the oration at the
Commemoration Service at the Capital.
Your Committee took its part in
the Welcome to the "Rainbow," and
was represented at the Celebration of
Trafalgar Day at Winnipeg, at the
Birthday Banquet to the Emperor
William, and on all other proper occasions during the year.
It will be remembered that a movement has been on foot for many
years for the amalgamation of the
various Canadian branches of the
League, and that our President has
frequently been requested to attempt
this work.
. In October, in response to an urgent letter from Winnipeg, he left
British Columbia for the East, visiting Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, St.
Thomas', Guelph, Woodstock, and
other points, at all of which his addresses were extremely well received,
and at Toronto a movement, endorsed
by the parent Navy League of London, was set on foot for the formation of a Canadian N4vy League affiliated to the Parent League to meet
annually at Winnipeg, and although
the intense excitement on the Reciprocity question has for a time diverted people's attention from this
movement, it is hoped that in the
coming year it will bear fruit. Owing
to the refusal of the C. P. R. Company to grant passes over its line, his
tour had to be undertaken at the
President's expense.
In response to the request of
Navy Leaguers all over Canada for a
clear statement of the Navy League's
case, such as might be useful to other
speakers and have an educational
value for the general public, our
president issued, at his own expense,
a pamphlet upon the Canadian Naval
question, of which sufficient editions
have been sold to cover the initial
outlay, and it is hoped that a sufficient profit will be made to enable
the League to circulate further editions gratuitiously, so that it may be
possible for every voter in Canada
to have an adequate understanding of
this great question.
It is pleasing in this connection to
record the receipt of letters from eminent men of both parties, and from
both sides of the Atlantic, including
one from the Minister of Marine, recognizing the impartiality of our
treatment of the case and the value of
the work to all those who are trying
to make the Canadian Navy of value
to the Empire and a credit to Canada.
Another exceedingly gratifying feature in last year's work is the endorsement given to us by our Premier, the Hon. Richard McBride, and
the receipt of sundry unsolicited donations from Mr. Forrest Angus, the
Canadian Bank of Commerce and others, towards the work of the League,
showing, as we think these things do,
that the League is at last recognized
as a body of some importance to the
good of thc Commonwealth.
In addition to the above mentioned
events, our President in the past year
twice visited Vancouver by request,
and addressed public meetings at that
city in support of our movement.

I BELIEVE in the goods I am handing out, in my establishment,
and in my ability to get results. I BELIEVE honest goods can
be passed out to honest people by honest methods. I BELIEVE
in working, not weeping; in encouragment, not disheartenment;
and in the pleasure of serving the public. I BELIEVE a man
gets what he goes after, that one deed done to-day is worth two
done to-morrow, and that no man, is down and out until he has
lost faith in himself. I BELIEVE in to-day, and the work I am
doing, in to-morrow and the work I hope to do, and in the sure
reward which the future holds. I BELIEVE in courtesy, in
kindness, in generosity, in good cheer, in friendship and honest
competition. I BELIEVE there is something doing somewhere
for every man ready to do it.   I BELIEVE I am ready right now.

MANY EASTER  WEDDINGS
ARE ON THE TAPIS
Therefore perhaps it's not amiss to say that the first essential towards good
housekeeping is a good Gas Range. The benedict-to-be should see that his
bride experiences the joy of a stove that is always ready, an oven that is1
always right and a heat that can be regulated scientifically without trouble.
Home comfort cannot be assured with coal or wood
fires for cooking purposes. Don't cook the cook
over a red-hot range on a warm summer's day.
Avoid tllis by cooking with gas; just a turn of the
tap—no worry, no work, no waste of fuel or time.
Gas makes home comfortable in summer and
winter. It makes work light so that the housewife
has more time for recreation.
A Gas Range means that you can cook any meal
of the day, summer or winter, with ease and comfort. Let one of our men set up a gas range in
your ktichen and you will find that you have the
most modern and convenient cooking apparatus of
the age. The cost of maintenance is far less than
for a coal range.

Southern Alberta Prospects.
"Given some moisture at the proper time this season and Southern Alberta will have a crop of grain that
will exceed any crop ever produced
in the south," said P. L. Nasmith,
general manager of the Alberta Railway & Irrigation Company, recently.
"There are hundreds of acres of fall
wheat and so far the prospects for a
splendid crop of this wheat are fine,"
he continued. "The country down
there will get its due this year if an
untimely drought does not occur,"

ROYAL   WARRANT   FOR   THE
VICTORIA YACHT CLUB
The Victoria Yacht Club has now
the gracious permission of his Majesty the King1 to bc known as the
"Royal" Victoria Yacht Club, together with thc much coveted privilege
of flying the Blue ensign.
The present commodore, Granville
Cuppage, promulgated thc idea that
the Vietoria Yacht Club should make
application for the Admiralty Warrant as far back as 1903, but the
idea was scoffed at, as thc tide in the
affairs of the Club was at a rather
low ebb. However, some of its more
energetic members were determined
that thc Yacht Club should not become a thing of the past, and thc
flag was kept flying on the boat house
belonging to Mr. B. B. Temple, who
has always been a staunch friend.
At the annual meeting of 1907 Mr.
J. S. Gibb was elected Commodore,
with Mr. G. V. Cuppage honorary
secretary, and 'heir efforts were rewarded by a largely increased membership and the Club made great
strides forward.
In 1908 a waterfront lot was
bought and a new Club house erected which was opened by Mrs. McBride. The year 1909 was successful and a bid was made to have the
International   Regatta  held   in  Vic
toria under the auspices of the V.
Y. C. This event took place in 1910
with Mr. G. V. Cuppage as Commodore, Mr. Gibb having retired on
account of a trip abroad. The success of the International Regatta
was unprecedented and a remarkable
compliment to the Yacht Club was
paid when at the general meeting of
the International Yacht Racing Association it was decided to hold the
next two annual regattas in Victoria.
This success encouraged the Club
to return to the idea of obtaining an
Admiralty Warrant. Captain Clive
Phillips-Wolley, President of the
Navy League, was interested on behalf of the Club, and the kind influence of several notable friends in the
Old Country had the very gratifying
result that Victoria can now boast of
a Royal Yacht Club. '
Thc only shadow east upon the
good news was thc loss the Club has
sustained by the death of the late
Captain James. By the irony of fate
thc news from the Admiralty was received on the same day that the
Memorial Service to those lost in the
Sechelt disaster was held in Christ
Church Cathedral. The late Captain
James was a great factor in the success of thc last regatta and was also
keenly interested in the question of
thc Royal Warrant.
The privilege of flying the Blue en
sign is always much coveted by
yachtsmen, and this privilege together with the prefix "Royal" to the
Club's name carries much prestige in
yachting circles. Royal Yacht Club
boats are liable in time of war to be
called upon to serve their country if
needed and so to all intents the Club
becomes an addition to the Naval
Reserve.
In view of the present progress
and prosperity of Victoria, this news
is particularly gratifying and assuredly the Royal Victoria Yacht Club
is destined to play a very prominent
part in the history of the great Pacific North West. Hearty congratulations are due to Commodore Cuppage and his allies who have done
so much to obtain the title "Royal"
to a royal sport in a royal city.
More British Capital
Douglas Island, situated in the
Fraser Kiver. off the westerly portion of Pert Mann, the Cana.ban
Northern .'ailway Company's town-
site, has been sold to British capitalists. The price paid for the property was in the neighborhood of

were Messrs. P. R. Burr and T. R.
Pearson of New Westminster. The
island contains 454 acres, and has 19,
000 feet of waterfront. It is reported
the entire property will be subdivided
for sale.

The tunic just this minute seems to
I be taking on drapings and it may,be
that the tendency   will   ripen   into
[something like the ancient overskirt
(with its plaits and folds, its wrinkles
[and upgatherings.   Women who re-
I member the overskirt's reign  recall
Ithat along with it went a necessary
Ibouffantry at the hips that was be-
I coming only to girlish figures.   That
[anything like that will return at this
Itime, or very soon, is most improb-
lable.    It would  take a good  many
|seasons, if not years, to displace the
present long, straight silhouette for
anything less graceful.   For at their
best  the present  styles  are  full  of
grace, and it is a grace that may be
Adapted to any figure.   All materials
ire  so  soft  and  supple  that   even
lanniers, that once stood out inde-
crossed the shoulders. Heavy bead
fringe outlined all the edges, dragging
the tunic and its draperies down into
the longest possible lines. From under the bib-shaped corsage there
came an under-bodice of silver embroidered white net. This had kimono sleeves and the' tucker was lined
with pink tulle to give a flesh tint.
Not all the girls know yet that a
transparent net or chiffon yoke or
tucker that has to have a lining will
appear unlined if flesh-colored chiffon is used under it. But the chiffon
lining must be brighter than it is to
appear from the outside. Quite a
bright chiffon appears like flesh color
under a fine close mesh net.
*   *   *
Here it is, the trouser skirt that has
stirred two continents and shocked
Lobster shade is replacing the
vogue of coral. A big loose bow of
material like the garment back of it
is the latest addition to the lower
part of the tunic. It is usually placed
at the bottom of one side and helps
to weight the thin material desirably
and drag it into correct line. An odd
costume worn at a big bridge party
the other afternoon had a dull rose-
colored skirt which was perfectly
plain, and above it there was an ap-
ple«*grecn tunic vvith one of the big
loose tied bows at the side. The
waist was a mere pair of soft bretelles
crossing the shoulders at each side
and leaving a wide open space as far
as the lifted waist-line. Across the
bottom of the space there was a
crushed band of dull rose color like
the skirt. The entire upper part was
of transparent net. A dark red rose
was tucked into the girdle, and in the
hair there was a fillet of green like
the tunic. A black lace scarf, long
and wide, ending in tassels, was worn
throughout the afternoon.
*   *   *
Black-and-White in all deparements
of the wardrobe is having a wonderful run. In spite of the great modish-
ness of the blend last fall and this
winter there is an appearance now of
a still greater vogue throughout the
coming summer.   But   many   of the
Idently of the lines of the figure,
laid now, cut in the same way, fall
■p. All the overdresses, whatever
pr kind, are of transparent mater-
if they make any pretensions to
lirtness. One of the popular ideas
Jthe use of coarse net over em-
lidered or beaded chiffon or other
li fabric, and sometimes the net is

even the case-hardened nerves of the
Paris police. Someone who wanted
to be witty named it "the militant
mother's trousers," and the title seems
appropriate. Perhaps matter-of-fact
makers of fame and fortune who have
been flaunting the style at their
spring openings have some appreciation of humor, and are giving a siy
dig at militant vote seekers among
their customers by suggesting appropriate raiment for them. At any
rate, whether the trouser skirt is a
joke or not, it is certainly here, and
we shall see what we shall see—
whether the buyers of dressmaking
departments have counted on woman's full appreciation of the arrival of
her long-deferred privilege to wear
trousers.
black-and-white costumes are touched
with vivid color in some way, and the
more original the note of brilliancy
the better it is liked. It is fortunate,
possibly, that winter is so near an
end, for if it were to go on for another two months there is no telling
where the growth of the muff would
end. One met on the avenue the other day was not only wide enough to
take in the arms nearly to the elbows,
but it rounded down until it was
within a few inches of the hem of the
skirt.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 1911
TRICKS OF THE TRADE
In last issue The Week made a brief
reference to a case which was then sub
judice, in which the well-known firm of
Kirk & Company, coal dealers of Victoria
West, were prosecuting one of their carters
named Lehrman for stealing eoal. The
charge was made with respect to the alleged stealing of a sack of coal, but the
prosecution was unable to substantiate the
charge, and under the able cross-examination of Mr. H. A. McLean, K.C, the principal in the firm of Kirk & Company was
forced to admit that his firm had abstracted large quantities of coal from trucks
.sold to the Fairview Nursery, in one
case as much as five and a half tons. It
is true that Mr. Kirk claimed that the
coal abstracted was replaced by what he
could scrape up around the yard which,
however, would not in any case be of the
same grade as that taken from the trucks,
which was "Pea," and if it was so replaced
it must have been by "slack" worth from
a dollar to a dollar fifty less per ton.
Against this very lame defence the Fair-
view Nurseries testified that they had not
been notified either of the abstraction or
the substitution and that whereas it was
the rule for them to sign a ticket of
acknowledgment for all coal received there
was no instance in which they had signed
or been called upon to sign for the alleged substituted fuel. The view put forward by Mr. McLean ancl concurred in
by many people who are familiar with
the case is that to cover their own irregularities the firm of Kirk & Company
had prosecuted Lehrman without any justification in the hope that if they could
make the case against him stick they
might be held blameless in the matter of
their own dealings. The dismissal of the
case against Lehrman leaves the firm of
Kirk & Company in a very serious position. Admittedly large tonnages of coal
have been abstracted from the consignments to the Fairview Nurseries and
there is no proof that it has been replaced.
It is hardly reasonable to suppose that
the Fair vieAV Nurseries is the only firm
which has been victimized, and whoever
the thief may be, many householders in
Victoria West will have an uneasy suspicion that their coal bills have been unduly
inflated by a system of short-weight delivery. And then there is the matter of
the other coal dealers of Victoria, men of
high standing, against whose honesty
nothing is known and who may not improbably have been isuspected 'of some
such practices as appear to have been
indulged in Victoria West. The whole
case is one of a particularly nauseating
character; it leaves a nasty taste in the
mouth, and as matters stand, unless the
firm implicated can very speedily clear
their skirts it is probable that some investigation will be held, which may result in
revelations of a still more startling character than those which have already
leaked out.
AN OFFICIAL OPINION
Tlie Week has frequently commented
on the leniency shown towards criminals
in the United States and Canada, and thc
highest authorities have hold that it is
prompted by a mawkish sentiment which
in its widespread manifestations is calculated to defeat the ends of justice and to
embolden the* evil-doer. This view is
strongly endorsed in a remarkable preface
to the Blue Book on Judicial Statistics
issued by the British Home Office. The
report strongly favours the amendments
to the Prison Acts which have been effected
during the last ten years to facilitate an
offender's return to the path of honesty,
and to make the punishment imposed on
him an aid rather than a hindrance in
his way. But it deplores the fact that
public sentiment has gone far beyond this.
In magazines and newspapers articles on
crime and punishment have become compassionate and sympathetic, and the ingenuity of the writers, especially in the
case of short stories, has brought about a
defence for crime and an acceptance of >
excuses which common sense cannot hut
reject. The article in question believes
that the steady increase of crime during
the last ten years is largely due to a general relaxation in public sentiment with
regard to it.   Ingenious frauds and rob
beries by idols of society form the themes
of the most popular novels; the modern
heroes of fiction are neither a Turpin nor
a .Claude Duval, for the very entourage
of these men belongs to a different age,
but their popular successors are a Raffles
or an Arsene Lupin, and the modern
criminal is too often vested with some
of the romance that with more reason belonged in the highwaymen of old. This
tendency is calculated to cloud the judgment and to deepen the impression that
crime is simply an ingenious and easy
way of making a living. Once the public
can be brought to regard the criminal as
a victim, the danger of this is greatly
increased. The whole article is a plea
for the abandonment of the public press,
and especially magazines, as a tribunal
for pronouncing on the treatment of criminals and a prompt and just enforcement
of the penalties which the law has attached
to crime.
AUTOMOBILISTS
It is not often that a deputation waiting upon a Minister with a full expectation of "roasting" him come away finding themselves "done to a turn," but such
was the experience of the deputation which
went to beard the Attorney-General in his
den on the subject of the new Automobile
Law. Mr. Bowsi-r's complete mastery of
the subject, his reciial of British precedent in throwing the onus of proof on
the shoulders of the defendant, and his
emphatic avowal that the Act did not aim
at curtailing the pleasure of automobilists
but .at ensuring the safety of the public
completely disarmed criticism. To apply
a well-known couplet "those who went to
scoff remained to pray." The upshot of
the whole matter is that the law will be
enforced, and that it will not be modified
until automobilists have redeemed their
promise made to the Government when
the Act was under consideration to form
a club amongst themselves and discipline
their own refractory members. This promise has apparently been forgotten; if it
had been carried out the path of automobilists would have been very much
smoother, the police would have had less
trouble, ancl there would have been no
need of deputations. Meanwhile, banished from the public streets of the city
during the day-time, scorchers are burning up the track around Beacon Hill in
the "wee sma' hours" and in this way letting off the steam. Why not arrange to
use the Willows Track when it is not required for other purposes?
THE WRECK OF THE SECHELT
It is difficult to write about the wreck
of the Sechelt without saying more than
one would wish to say in view of the
sorrow and grief in which so many persons must have been plunged. The investigation which has commenced before the
coroner may not improbably be continued
before a Royal Commission and it would
be unwise to enlarge upon several features
of the catastrophe which are being discussed on the street, such as the construction of the ill-fated vessel, the manner in
which she was loaded ancl the persons on
whom the responsibility rests for sending
her to her doom. All these matters will
receive the fullest consideration, ancl it is
surely not too much to hope that the result
will be a radical change in the system
under whicli coasting vessels are licensed,
especially when they carry passengers.
Meanwhile, every heart will beat in pro-'
found sympathy with the bereaved ones,
ancl the public will acclaim the beautiful
memorial service held in Christ Church
Cathedral to which an element of pathos
was added by the close association of Captain James with the religious work of the
parish, and the presence of so fine a body
of Boy Scouts at the ceremony.
QUESTION OF RIGHT
In discussing the action of Lord
Swaythling who willed that in the event
of any of his children forsaking the
Jewish faitli or marrying anyone of another faith they are to lose the greater
part of their inheritance, a contemporary
remarks that no man has a moral right
to bind the actions of future generations,
especially in the matter of religious belief.   That this is simply a matter of the
right of personal liberty and t]b&t it is
time that laws allowing wills of'that kind
were repealed. Does the writer seriously
mean that being of sane mind, and not
unduly influenced by other persons, a testator should be prevented by law from
lending his money to whomsoever he
pleases, with whatever stipulations he
sees fit to make? It is hardly necessary
to point out that if such a thing were possible there would be an end of the making
of wills, and property generally would be
disposed of by "deed of gift" during the
life-time of the owner, in which case the
consequences to expectant legatees would
probably be far more disappointing than
under the present system. If there is any
question of the right to personal liberty,
surely it extends to the man who is disposing of what is his own.
A DISTINGUISHED MINORITY
The Mayor of London, Ont., found himself the only person present at a public
meeting called to establish a "George"
fund in his city, which proves that there
are at least two cities in Canada in which
the Mayor takes a singular view of his
position. The people of London showed
their good sense by staying away, and
everyone who knows London knows that
it is one of the most loyal of places and
one which has distinguished itself frequently by professions of allegiance to the
British Crown. The Week has no patience
with this "George" and "Mary" fund
which is something like an American
"freak" notion, and which is based upon
the preposterous supposition that British
subjects who are fortunate enough to be
named "George" or "Mary" are more
loyal, or would do more to prove their
loyalty than those who rejoice in less distinguished names. There is absolutely
no "raison d'etre" for either fund; if any
appeal is to be made it should be on the
broadest basis.
TREATMENT OF HINDUS
The Colonist deprecates the allegation
that. Hindus are being treated with injustice in British Columbia; in fact it goes
further and announces from its pedestal
as a newspaper authority that "we fail to
see a single ground for the claim that the
Hindus do not receive equal justice here
with any other people." What does the
Colonist say to the authenticated fact that
the head of a Victoria firm went to the
police and induced them to lock up a
Hindu in the police cells for some hours,
without laying any information or making
any charge, simply on the plea that they
wanted him to give evidence in an action
in which thev were interested, ancl they
had reason to believe that the Hindu was
going to leave town? Does the Colonist
believe that if the Hindu had been a white
man he could have been subjected to this
treatment ? On verification of tbe fact by
a reference to the Police Department will
the Colonist withdraw its oracular utterance that "Hindus receive equal justice
here with other people."
DEPUTY MINISTER OF RAILWAYS
The appointment of Mr. F. C. Gamble
to the important position of Deputy Minister of Railways is in line with lthe
policy of the Government to make the
Public Service efficient, and to secure promotion by merit. Of Mr. Gamble's fitness for the position it would be superfluous to speak. By natural ability, by
expert training, by lengthy and varied experience ancl by special knowledge of the
needs of the Province Mr. Gamble is
better equipped for the position than any
other man we could mention. He is so
modest and retiring in disposition that
only those that have been intimately associated with hiin know his true worth.
That he will continue to render invaluable service to the Province which he
has already served so long and so well
is not open to question. The Week
heartily congratulates him on a well-
deserved and singularly apposite promotion.
nadian port, Victoria.   On their arrivl
it was found that no Dominion Goveri
ment official could do anything for thei

which to feed or house them, and no meaif
of transporting them to the Alberni dl

This was the verdict of Mr. W. E. Ditcl
burn, the Indian Agent,  and therefo|
must be correct.   It was not possible

AN UNBALANCED JUDGMENT
It is a pity that the Victoria Tir
cannot find even one redeeming trait]
Premier McBride.   In a recent editor!
he is denominated "a foolish and fa
prophet, making reckless assertions frl
a pedestal upon which his blind and
hided followers have placed him, justl
if he were an oracle."    The whole troul
is   about   the   Reciprocity   Agreemej
which he deprecates amongst other
sons because he believes that in its work|
out it will have a tendency to weaken
ties that bind us to the Motherland.
McBride in his original manifesto on j
subject emphatically declared that the
alty of Canada was not in question,
only the Times would be so purblindl
to suggest that the one statement confl|
with the other, and only the Times wd
fall   back   upon   such   American   sil
phraseology as "political piffle" to descl
the utterances of a man who has clonj
much for British Columbia as Mr.
Bride.   The voice of the people will hJ
ly bear out the statement that it is
McBride who has "deceived his blind,
deluded followers."
