jtmday
Ibservance.
The Week is authorized
to state that the attitude
of the Attorney-General
towards the enforcement
J the Lord's Day Act in this Province is
limmed up in the following words which
tmprise his reply to an influential dele-
lition from the Kootenay which waited
lion him on Wednesday last:    " Why
[ould I take upon myself such a burden
responsibility?   I am not the servant
the Dominion Parliament.   I will give
Irmission to prosecute to all applicants
[id let the magistrates judge the merits of
case."    In confirming this statement
Ie Attorney-General reiterated that he
|.d no intention and it was entirely out
the question for him to undertake an
Ivestigation of each case.    The Week is
Jrfectly satisfied with this declaration,
lid believes that it will result in a rea-
Inable enforcement of the Act;  no one,
last of all the Lord's Day Alliance, de-
Ires that the Act should be arbitrarily
liforced,  which  accounts for the  clause
Iserted by the Senate which places such
(1 invidious responsibility upon the At-
Irney-General.   The resolution passed by
le Victoria Board of Trade fairly reflects
le public opinion of the Province, and
[hile it  is gratifying to find that  the
lflonist has at last come to its senses in
lis matter and deputed its Editor to move
le resolution it is greatly to be regretted
tat it should have continued so long to
losecute a campaign of misrepresentation
Id deliberate falsification.    The resolu-
jin referred to is as follows:
J" Kesolved, that this board, while as-
§iting to the principle that Sunday ought
be as far as possible devoted to rest
Id worship, believes that in framing the
[ird's Day Act the Parliament of Canada
not make enough allowance for the
ladition of affairs in British Columbia,
Id that the Provincial Government be,
Id hereby is, requested to take the ques-
|n of Sunday observance into consider-
lon, with a view to ascertaining if the
It referred to ought not to be varied in
Ine particulars, so as to make it more
fceptable to the people of this Province,
|d as little injurious as possible to Brit-
Columbia industries."
iThe Nelson News, which all along has
pn almost as violent in its opposition as
Colonist, performed a volte face about
same time, and in an admirably writ-
It editorial advocated the enforcement of
Act  "with  reasonable  exemptions."
father the Colonist nor the Daily News,
Iwever, have been fair enough to state
lit this is exactly the attitude assumed by
li Alliance and voiced by their Western
Icretary, Mr. Eochester.    It is the atti-
lle which The Week took from the first,
Id which is now certain of attainment.
ten the bitterest opponents of the meas-
g* have come to realize that its main pro-
lions and above all the principle involved
in   consonance   with   public   opinion
J-oughout the Dominion.   The man who
looses the principle of the measure is a
lie Englander in tlie narrowest sense,
Ice he is striving' for the perpetuation
[Provincial control in a matter which
Iblic opinion and tlie highest Court in
I Empire have decided to bc a Federal
jbject.    The line of action which the
Itorney-General has decided upon, is both
wise and judicial since it leaves the Courts
to decide what may even yet be regarded
as a vexed question, viz., whether the
clause delegating authority to the Attorney-General is not ultra vires, and it is
almost certain that one of the earliest
cases to come before the Courts will be
carried to appeal in order that this point
may be settled. Whatever the outcome,
it is inconceivable because opposed to the
public interest that there should be any
real difficulty or considerable delay in enforcing the provisions of a measure which
has been passed by the Federal Parliament on the advice of our highest Court
and which has been acquiesced in by the
vast majority of the people.
The Curse
Of Poverty.
" Onlooker," whom it is
easy to identify since
the public is informed
in the editorial columns
of the paper which published the letter
that he is a prominent barrister, has drawn
public attention to a matter of which more
will be heard. Whilst in many respects
British Columbia leads all the other Provinces of Canada, both in its Legislation
and in the administration of the law, there
is one respect in which it lags behind, and
enjoys the unenviable notoriety of living
under conditions which can only be regarded as a relic of dark and barbaric ages.
" Onlooker" points out that the honest
debtor may be and often is imprisoned
nominally for contempt of Court for not
paying a judgment debt, but in reality this
is simply a survival of the Fleet imprisonment for debt. The letter is admirable
in every respect, and everyone should read
it in Friday's Colonist. To realize to its
full extent the evils which it points out,
would be to arouse public sentiment, and
to ensure the removal of such a stigma
from the statutes of the Province. If the
miserable fracas which occasioned this
letter does nothing more than focus the
attention of the public upon a subject
demanding treatment, it will have served
its purpose.
Suaviter
in modo.
A new member of the
Legislative Assembly,
whom it is not necessary to name since he
has not yet incurred the censure of the
Speaker, would do well to take a lesson
from his elders. It is not good form for
a late comer, especially if he be a comparatively young man, to be too much in
evidence during the first session, whicli
he has the honour of attending. There is
much which he may learn by keeping his
seat and listening. Bumptiousness and
even freshness are becoming more unpopular every day, whether they are manifested
on the floor of the House or in Committee.
Tho cold douche administered to the member in question by John Oliver may not
quench his ardor, but it should damp his
enthusiasm at any rate until next session.
The Week has on several
A Western occasions commented up-
Octopus. on the policy of the G.
T. P. in connection with
the exploitation of their property in the
West. It now proposes to give a few specific instances, which will be increased
later on, illustrating the monopolistic
policy which   has  been  laid  down  and
which will be rigidly enforced. That
policy is to incorporate and register Companies under different names, but with
the same interests behind them to gobble
up all the chances that could possibly
occur in the new Eldorado of Northern
British Columbia. First of all the Prince
Kupert Hardware and Supply Co., Ltd.,
boasts as its subscribers and directors the
following gentlemen: Edwin Gillmor
Kussell, Thomas Dunn, Frank Albert Ben-
net, Francis Brooke Gregory and David
Hunt Hays. Next the Vancouver-Prince
Kupert Meat Co., Ltd., of which the subscribers and directors are: Trueman Smith
Baxter, Patrick Donelly, and Patrick
Joseph Russell. Then comes the United
Supply and Contracting Co., Ltd., of
which the subscribers are Jas. Carruthers,
Edwin Gillmor Russell, and Percy Howe
Gillmor. Finally, we have the Kelly -
Carruthers Supply Co., Ltd., with the following subscribers and directors: Robert
Kelly, David Hunt Hays, Edwin Gillmor
Russell, William Alexander Craig and
Edward Douglas. Anyone who is conversant with the personnel of the G. T. P.
management in the West and their friends,
will be impressed by* the fact that a Russell appears in every one of these lists,
and Kelly and Hayes are not unknown
names in this connection. There are three
other Companies with respect to whicli
The Week will be in a position to furnish
similar information in its next issue and
how many more there may be to follow-
only Providence and E. G. Russell can
tell. It is hardly necessary to comment
upon the policy indicated by these registrations; it justifies all that has been said
by the critics of the G. T. P., and more
than justifies the stand which has been
taken by this Province against enriching a
corporation which obviously wants the
earth, and apparently will not be satisfied
until it gets it. Lest it should be thought
that the criticism of The Week is extreme
or its conclusions not justified by the facts,
the following authenticated circumstance
is submitted: A barber who desired to
commence business at Prince Rupert was
refused permission by the G. T. P. authorities until he paid a fee of five hundred
dollars; the fee was paid; the man's name
is Henry Creech, formerly of Ladners,
B. C. Such an exorbitant charge means
one of two things, either that the agents
of the G. T. P. mean to monopolize every
business themselves or that they intend to
levy a tax upon outsiders beside which the
rate of usury which has rendered the guileless Hebrew notorious will appear a
modest charge.
Two years ago the most
No Successor to brilliant Mining Jour-
B. T. A. Bell. nalist in Canada, B. T.
A. Bell of Ottawa,
passed away. A man of unique gifts,
brilliant intellect and intense personal
magnetism, he had attained a position in
the mining world and especially in connection with mining literature which none
could emulate. Tho Canadian Mining
Review had been conducted by him for
twenty years, witli unvarying success. Its
great attraction was its absolute independence ; no corporation was too powerful to
bc denounced if it deflected from the
straight and narrow path, and tlie most
brilliant and well-informed criticisms
which have ever appeared in Canadian
papers emanated from tlie pen of Mr. Bell,
lie had no successor, because no man was
available who possessed his unique combination of gifts, first one and then an
other, better posted perhaps in the technique of mining tried their hand, but at
Journalism it was a prentice hand, and
after struggling for two years the Mining
Review is lost sight of forever, having
been purchased by a Toronto syndicate
for the purpose of boosting Cobalt and any
other Mining district in which they may
acquire large interests. It is not to be
wondered at that Toronto wished to silence
the voice of the great independent Mining
Review, and since the paper had lost its
independence it is perhaps just as well that
it should slip quietly out of existence and
be forgotten. As the Canadian Mining
Journal it will suggest no connection with
its honourable past, for tlie history of the
Canadian Mining Review will forever be
associated with the life-work and memory
of its brilliant founder.
Another week has gone
Better Terms. and  the Opposition  is
still shying at the debate
on Better Terms. This is hardly to be
wondered at since the resolutions submitted to .the House House by the Government force Mr. Macdonald and his followers cither to support the Government
on a subject which they fought as a campaign issue, or to endorse the action of the
Premier in leaving the Ottawa Conference. In any event, Mr. Macdonald is in
a cleft stick. He may "'horribili dictu"
try to escape by voting for the amendment of the Member for Nanaimo approving of Better Terms, but disapproving of
the Premier, which would be a strange
Nemesis after all that the Opposition have
said about "anarchy" and ' the red flag."
But this is only one of the many vagaries
of politics as the game is played in Canada and causes serious reflections as to
the morale of party allegiance which compels a leader to raise a false issue only to
abandon it when it has served -its purpose.
The House
Of Lords.
Lord Curzon has written
a letter on the subject of
the House of Lords and
on the principle of being thankful for small mercies the erudite
Editor of a well-known Coast paper has
been made happy. A few months ago he
was caught tripping when he undcrtook
to deal with this venerable institution of
thc Empire, without having first studied
its history. He declared that there was a
high state of feverish hostility to the House
of Lords and predicted that tlie result
might be its abolition, but was generous
enough to concede that even if it had outlived its usefulness its record would show-
that more by accident thnn by design it
had "done thc State some service." Now,
just why the aforesaid Editor should
cackle because lie lias unearthed Lord Cnr-
zon's leter is not very obvious; it is, however, perfectly obvious that the Editor is
unaware of the fact that Lord Curzon has
been for fifteen years a strenuous advocate of reform of the gilded chamber. In
thc letter under discussion he reiterates
tlie three methods which have been suggested for dealing with it—abolition, reform, substitution. So far as Tlie Week
is concerned tliere is very little difference of opinion on the subject of reform,
and since Lord Curzon does no more than
to endorse the popular verdict on this
subject, it would be interesting to know
why thc Editor considers that anyone
should have a spasm, the whole episode is
an admirable illustration of the venerable
proverb that "a little knowledge is a dangerous Ihing." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1907.
At The Street    e)
Corner h
p By THE LOUNOER f*
I grieve to say that I have no complaints to make this week. There are
several things about which I could
talk, but I think that they are rather
out of my regime, and in any case
they cannot be commented upon until
the law has had its say first. Then
I, and any other newspaper man, will
be at liberty to talk freely on a subject which has done more to disgust
Victorians with Victoria than anything else in her history during the
last thirteen years.
Of course there is the Mayor to
talk about; there is also the Council;
there is also the Victoria Daily Times
and the Victoria Daily Colonist. But
when all is said and done, there is
not much that is of interest to the
public, for whom I cater, in any of
these institutions. If a man wants to
quarrel and hurl abuse, as most of
the Councillors seem inclined to do,
there is no need to go as far as the
City Hall. Any old saloon will do
just as well. If His Worship the
Mayor wishes to "sarcasticise" to coin
a word, he can do it every bit as
effectively on thc street as in the
Council chamber.
As for the Times and the Colonist—
well, I have thought over their case,
and I venture to think that I have
arrived at thc most sensible suggestion yet made for their future conduct It must be obvious to everyone
who reads the daily papers that each
of these two get thc greater part of
their editorials out of slinging mud
at the other. As to which is in the
right does not worry me in the slightest. I am merely a Lounger who is
not supposed to take any part in politics.
I was thinking only the other day
that it was a pity that thc two most
influential papers in the Province
should show such a petty spite towards each other, and that it would
be much better for Victoria if they
were to live at harmony with each
other. "Lounger,'' I said, "if there
is one man who can promote harmony it is yourself. Why do you
hang back and complain instead of
letting thc rival papers have the benefit of your experience? Why should
you criticise the editorials in the Sunday Colonist or the Saturday Times
.when you have done nothing, absolutely nothing, to create peace on
earth." In direct consequence of the
talking of this inner consciousness of
mine I set to work and I think that I
havc evolved a scheme which will not
only satisfy the papers in question,
but also tlieir readers. Why should
not the Victoria Daily Times and thc
Victoria Daily Colonist amalgamate?
It would be so easy. All that would
bc necessary would be for the two
respective editors to get together and
discuss the matter quietly. The idea
would bc that instead of Victoria being bored by two papers every day
she should only have one. This one
should he a joint affair. I would propose that the respective editors should
toss up and lhe winner should have
the privilege of the front sheet for
the first issue tinder the new management. Of course the other editor
would havc the same right on thc
next day, and thc courtesy would be
extended by each to the other onwards.
I think, my readers, that you will
all sec how much time would be saved
in this busy world by thc adoption of
such a system as I am recommending.
Both sides of the political party would
be pleased, their own partisans would
bc pleased, and people would say, as
I did last week, "Everything in thc
garden's lovely."
There is another matter which I
wish to bring before my readers, and
I venture to think that it is one which
will appeal to all who take the trouble
to read my column. There is nothing
which disgusts mc more than to hear
a man use abusive language through
thc telephone. It is ungentlcmanly;
it is "bad form"; and still worse, it is
often very offensive to thc girls who
work in the telephone office.   If only
for the latter reason it would be well
for the men who live in Victoria or
its neighbouring cities, to be more
careful. Many a man, as I have heard
for myself, will not hesitate to pick
up the call bell, and when in conversation with his acquaintance will
pour out into the telephone the accumulated filth of countless generations. Of course, "Central" is not
supposed to be listening. But "Central" is only human, and "Central"
does very often listen; it is her privilege so to do, provided that she keeps
her mouth shut; it is only by "Central" listening that the occasions do
occur where telephones are "cut out."
I want to "rub it in" that a man can
never show himself to worse advantage than through a telephone; if he
abuses it he shows himself to be
something infintely lower than the
angels. Now, my readers, do not
shrug your shoulders and say "Oh,
The Lounger does not know what he
is talking about." He does, for he is
talking of what he has heard himself.
So, my dear young friends, "be careful."
It has occurred to me that though
I have written under the name of
"Lounger" for some eighteen months
I have never described to my readers
exactly what "lounging" is. It may
appear to be a very simple exercise;
a mere walk down the street once a
week; an easily obtained view on humanity. But these observations will
be found to be incorrect. "Lounging,"
when done regularly and conscientiously, is hard work; it is tedious
work, it is work which has to be done
all through the week. No amount of
Lord's Day Alliance bills will ever
benefit poor "Lounger." It is impossible to conceive of a police court
magistrate convicting a man of working on the "Lord's Day" when he has
only been seen walking up and down
the street; and yet that is what I get
owed for. (As a matter of fact, I get
paid once an hour.) Then this
"lounging" is skilled work. It requires practice to be able to walk
down the street and see all the abuses
which have to be reported. It requires memory to be able to recollect
all the stories which are worth reproduction. It requires tact to be
able to call the attention of our
worthy Councillors to those things
which they should do in such a manner as to properly arrest the said
attention without hurting the same
feelings. I feel that I am pleading
my own case. I am convinced that
there is no case which more needs
pleading.
I was glad to see that since I last
wrote, a real estate office has been
opened up in Victoria. Thus, a long-
felt want has been filled. Everybody
will know where this office is situated,
so as I have not been paid to advertise it I will not specify the position.
It is satisfactory to know that Victoria is not one whti behind Vancouver now in this conneft-ion.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Dear Sir: As I find my name has
been freely used in support of the
proposed East Kootenay game reservation, both in our papers, and with
our politicians, will you allow me to
state publicly what my position really
is. I believe in the general principle
of establishing sanctuaries or reservations for the protection of our big
game, but as we cannot make a sanctuary of the whole Province, I think-
that wc ought to be very careful to
choose those portions of it for sanctuaries which will best serve the end
we havc in view.
T am not familiar with the particular locality suggested by Prof. Hornaday, and should therefore, of course,
refrain from specially pleading for or
against that particular district. But
thc principle upon which we should
select our district seems to me to bc
clear.
If the section specified includes thc
run (summer and winter) of the few
wapiti (elk) and some of the sheep
still left in East Kootenay, it would
certainly bc well to make a reservation nf it, but if not, our game wardens might be instructed to define the
area in which thc last small band of
wapiti on our Mainland still exists,
and reserve that.
We   ought   to   protect   our   wapiti
and sheep more than oijr goats, because goats are widely spread, and
extremely numerous throughout the
Province; they are not wanted for
their meat, their coats, or the credit
of having killed "the biggest fool out
of doors," and they live in places
which neither man nor beast wants
to share with them, whereas upon the
Mainland of British Columbia wapiti
are only known to exist in very small
numbers in East Kootenay, and sheep
are growing rapidly scarce everywhere, except in our far north, and
these beasts are the noblest and the
most beautiful wild things in our
Province. For these reasons, such
little influence as an older hunter in
British Columbia may have, must be
used in favour of any reservation
which includes their haunts and protects them, and not in favour of any
places in which they do not exist.
Yours truly,
CLIVE PHILLIPPS-WOLLEY.

To the Editor of the Week.
Dear    Sir:      Your    correspondent,
"Anglo-Saxon,"   in   your   last  issue,
lays upon me thc unmerited charge
of evil suspicion and prying curiosity
(vide   Murray's  dictionary,  "inquisi- j
tive").    I  am  going to  retaliate  by
telling him that he has no sense of
humour.    "Bohemian's" disinterested-1
ncss in writing his article, "The Key," j
was so patent that my query, "Can 1
it  be  that  'Bohemian'  is  a  Jesuit?"
could only have been prompted by a
spirit of facetiousness.    In short, it
was a joke.    Yours truly,

It Was Beyond Him.
One day, just before an eclipse of
thc sun, Mr. Lowell, a scientist, told
his darky, George, that if he would
watch the following morning about
11 o'clock he would see the chickens
all go to roost. "Hi! Hi!" laughed
George; "dat am a good joke."
When on the next morning the sun
darkened, and the chickens went to
their roosts, George was amazed and
horrified. He found Mr. Lowell and
said, "How long, sah, did you know
'bout dese chickens?" "Oh, a long
time." "Did you know it last year,
sah?"   "Yes; more than a year ago."
"Well, dat beats all," said the astounded darky, eyeing Mr. Lowell
with awe. "Dem chickens wuzn't
hatched a year ago!"

ohn Morton. It may interest my
gaders to know that Mr. Carter is
ctually 85 years of age, and that he
ias been on the stage since he was
jve years old; this is surely a unique
ecord, and I doubt whether it has
ver been equalled, just fancy, eighty-
ne years I Here is a man who was
10m abotu the same time as Queen
/ictoria and who, while she has been
tiling empires, has been playing his
nany parts upon the stage where the
mummer struts and fumes. I must
confess to my shame, thta I never
heard of John Carter till last night,
but I take off my hat to a man who,
at eighty-five, can present such a neat
and artistic bit of portraiture and has
still enough enthusiasm left to compel the applause of his audience. "A
Ragged Messenger" cannot for a moment be classed with "Monsieur
Beaucaire," in which Creston Clarke
last appeared in Victoria, and the obvious decadence of modern plays sets
one sighing for a decent vehicle to

The New Grand.
I am glad to be able to compliment
the management of the New Grand
Theatre on the engagement of their
present company. Victoria seldom
has thc opportunity of seeing such a
well-balanced company as is at present appearing at her principal vaudeville house. For sheer comedy commend me to Viola and Engle, whose
acrobatic performance is the best mixture of humour and skill that I have
seen for sonic lime. Sam Rowley is
an Australian; he is also a humourist,
incidentally he is a funny man. His
hit on Mayor Morley brought down
the house, for Mr. Rowley realises
that there is nothing which is more
popular than a local allusion. He is
perhaps the besc monologuist that I
have seen in Victoria, and he has a
first-class voice. "The Pendletons"
present a good xylophone and musical act. Solomon II. is entirely beyond me; I know that there is no
trickery in his turn, because I went
up on the stage myself to chalk down
figures on the blackboard. His powers of calculation are simply marvellous, and I safely say that the only
performer whose work at all approached that of Solomon II. was
"Datas," the well-known London artist whose memory for dates formed
the sensation of 1903. Miss Belle
Stone was advertised as a central
figure in this week's show. She was
rightly thus advertised. Her ascent
up a spiral stair while enclosed in a
hollow ball, and her descent are merely phenomenal, nothing more. If
Miss Stone were the only performer
at the New Grand, it would be worth
two-bits to go there. There is one
more attraction. It "s seldom that I
ever say anything about the orchestra, because like the poor it is ever
with  us,  but  this  week  I  feel  con
strained to compliment Prof. Nagcl
both on the choice of thc selection
and the excellent way in whicli it was
performed.
Blanche Walsh in The Straight Road.
Blanche Walsh, thc renowned emotional actress, will come to the Victoria Theatre, Wednesday evening,
March 27th next, in Clyde Fitch's
newest play, "The Straight Road."
Miss Walsh is surrounded by the
company which supported her during
the long run of thc play at her home
play-house, thc Astor Theatre, New
York . Managers Wagenhals & Kemper announce that the production will
be thc Broadway one in each detail.
Great attention has been drawn to
the so-called "Madonna Scene" in the
third act—a throbbing bit of intensity
concerning which there appeared more
ethical and semi-religious reviews in
thc New York newspapers than were
written about any other offering on
Broadway. The critics were of two
minds. One writer said it bordered
on the sacrilegious; another that it
was thc most human piece of stage
business that had been seen on a New
York stage in many a year.
It is in the third act that Miss
Walsh, in the role of "Moll O'llara,"
a girl of the slums, is led to believe
that her lover lias discarded her for
another. She has become a reformed
woman for his sake and now, in a
spasm of hopelessness and utter despair, she determines to forget her former avowal to walk "thc straight
road" and to drown her troubles in
a wild debauch. Like a mad woman
she tears at the furniture; she grasps
a flask of whiskey and pulls the cork
with her teeth; she tears the shade
from the window and then stands
quivering with thc liquor in her upraised hand. For thc sweeping away
of the window covering has Hooded
the room with light and one stray
moonbeam illumines weirdly the picture of the Virgin hung on the wall.
The woman falls on her knees before
thc picture of thc Mother of Sorrows
in an agony of contrite weeping. The
scene is almost terrible.
Mr. Arthur Lane, of Quamichan, is

Whatever may be the other excellences or deficiencies, the English
language affords as many- opportunities for evading the real truth while

I left on the table?"
"Father," said the boy, "I haven't

Another Packing House Scandal.
A man who was running a lunch
stand out in a Western town used
only canned goods.
The Indians from a nearby reservation had seen him take so many different things from cans that seemed
to them should be growing in the
open air that they began to wonder
what he would bring next.
One day he got a graphophone and
started it to playing. A crowd soon
collected, among it several Indians.
Someone went up to a group of Indians and asked what they thought
of it. The reply was a shrug of the
shoulders and the expressive "Ugh!"
Finally he went up to one young
brave and asked his opinion. The Indian thought a while and then said
calmly:
"Ugh!   Canned white man!"

The late James Wyllie, the "Herd
Laddie," whose name is synonymous
with all that is popular in the game
of draughts, received a box of cigars
from a German enthusiast during the
course of his last battle with ex-
champion Martins.
"Mit dose cigars," said the donor,
"you can beat all der vorld."
"Ah, weel," said Wyllie in his canny
Scots manner, "I hae to play Martins
this afternoon."
"Neever mind, my boy; mit dose
cigars you will play verc goot.'
Later in the day they met again,
and Wyllie informed his friend that
he had won a game with Martins that
afternoon.
"Verc goot. I tells you it was der

"I hardly think that," said Wyllie.
"But, veil, did you not schmoke der
cigars?"
"Me   smoke   them?"  cried Wyllie.

THE LITTLE BROWN BIRD
Continued from page 7.
"No, I'm waitin' fer 'im. Hain't he
een with you-all? He said he was
oing to the round-up down by the
iver. Hain't there been no round-
3? When'd he quit you?" and she
ise questioningly and went down the
eps of the porch.
"Yes, we've been roundin' up, and
|)hn was thai", but he quit and left"
he man eyed her critically.
Cordially inviting them to get down
nd wait for him, she went back up
steps   and   sat    down,   assuring
Iiem that he would surely be there
)on.
"We heerd that John had done
issed by at the springs down be-
>w," said the oldest of the men, a
ill, raw-boned, gray-whiskered Texan.
"Well, he'd orter be here. You'd
itter git down. He'll sure be here
.on."
The old man, sitting in lounging
titude on his horse, looked at the
ank, upturned face of the woman,
which the moonlight played in its
|ift brightness.
"Ride round the corral, Johnny, and
(rough   it.    Maybe  he's  thar,"  the
an  said,  turning to  a young boy
ar him.
"Oh, if he's thar, he'll come on in,
Ir he'll see you-all," she said.
Vhat's thc matter that you-all act
?" and she suddenly stood by the
ad of the old man's horse, grasp-
the bridle near thc bit. The old
tin  straightened in  his  saddle  and
I en stepped to the ground.
"See here," he said, and put his
nd on her shoulder. "John shot
e Benson down by the River, and
*.'re after him, and we're goin' to
him, by God. We're goin' to
arch the house. Come on, boys.
!tn, you stand guard." He took the
)man, who looked at him in great
rprise, by the arm and led her into
house.    From   her  manner  and
[I'uctance it might readily be infer-
d that John was concealed there
mewherc.
It   was   not  much   to   search—the
tic cottage—two rooms in the main
rt, each one opening on the porch
a door and a window, and back
these   a   shed    dining-room   and
|:chen. There were few furnishings
d the heavy boots of the men re-
unded over the bare floors. The
tie girl still slept sweetly in the
st room. In the second room the
y lay, from appearances, regular
eathing and closed eyes—asleep.
|The men searched high and low,
woman sitting in a chair in the
tddle of the first room, where the
1 man had put her so they could
tch her. Finally they gave up the
arch and started to pass out.
Thc woman sprang from her chair
d seizing the arm of the old man
Id it with a clinch like a vise.
Jow, by God, it's my turn. John
ver shot Joe Benson. He didn't,
ju're lyin'. Because you got
•tched in that brandin' play and
ihn let out on you, you're layin to
do him up. I know you." Her eyes
flashed and glowed with passion as
she stood threateningly before him.
He looked down at her from his
six feet four inches of height and a
flush spread slowly over his face
which caught the full light from the
moon as he stood in the doorway.
"I ain't lyin'. Stay in the house,"
and he twisted her hand from his
arm.
They mounted their horses and
rode away in the moonlight—rode on
up the road that followed along the
dry bed of the mountain stream that
ran by the Raymond ranch where
they had just been searching.
The woman watched them disappear and then threw herself across
the foot of the bed at the feet of her
child. The boy came noiselessly
from the other room and lay very
close to her, putting his arm over
her. They lay there some little time
silently. Finally the boy sobbed aloud
and clung convulsively to his mother,
who turned her eyes that were so
wide open—so big with their love and
their striving, toward him, and in a
moment the mother and boy were
sobbing in each others' arms.
"They won't hang Pap, Mammy?"
"No, Bud."
"You'll save Pap, Mammy?"
"Yes, Bud, and you'll help."
"Oh, Mammy, I'll sure help."
It was moonlight in the mountains.
Along the rough, rocky trail through
the canyon a woman, dressed in man's
apparel, rode horseback. She looked
a slender boy.
As the horse, his head free, deftly
picked his way over the broken, rugged and, in some places, dangerous
trail, the rider crooned with affecting
simplicity, "The Little Brown Bird"—
a sad little story. It was a story
peculiarly associated with her hearthstone and now its monotonous and
sometimes weird intonations carried
with pathetic clearness through the
dim light of thc deep canyon.
The clear moonlight only now and
then found its way down into these
depths—at some treeless, rocky turn,
or where for some linevident reason
the river bordered on a small, level,
grass-covered, comparatively treeless
plot. Every few moments in her song
the rider would stop and seemed to
listen with painful alertness. It was
as if she were listening for some sort
of an answer. The horse travelled
on, both seeing and smelling his way.
Still "The Little Brown Bird" floated
among the trees and rocks, broken by
intervals of silence, along the way.
She travelled this rugged trail for
over an hour. She was approaching
Bear Springs now—less than a hundred feet from the top of the range.
As the trail led up along the mountain side, because of the impassable
rocky barriers of the canyon below,
it followed around an abrupt, perpendicular projection of thc mountain.
At the most acute angle of tlie turn
she drew rein, and the solitary horse
and rider was as a picture framed by
the dark, deep solitude of thc mountains.

Dear Madge:
With the dull days of winter fast
becoming a thing of the past, and
spring coming upon us very rapidly
now, it behooves one to bear in mind
the immediate selection of clothes for
spring wear. One of the most interesting of early spring innovations in
the realm of blouses is the picturesque
waistcoat bretelles, which form an
accompaniment to some of the newest lace or net slips. The bretelles
are carried out in taffeta or cloth the
exact shade of the skirt, and are cut
very narrow over the shoulders,
widening just below the bust so as to
form a species of gilet somewhat after
the style of a man's evening waistcoat, the frilled lace vest of the blouse
being introduced with capital effect
above it. In the case of an accessory
of this description, which was designed in the palest mauve silk, a
narrow black and white braid defined
the edge, while narrow bands of the
silk outlined with braid decorated the
wide sleeves of the blouse, the two
sides of the tiny waistcoat being connected with the black and white braid.
The fate of the short walking skirt
seems to have been hanging in the
balance for some time past. It was
impossible to prophesy whether it
would, with other useful items of
dress, come under the ban of Dame
Fashion, or whether its life—as far
as Victoria was concerned—would be
extended through the spring and summer. At thc present moment, however, there seems every likelihood
that for young girls, at any rate, the
skirts of walking length may be numbered among the many good things
that will be seen this spring. These
will show ample width, being either
kilted to just above the knees, where
they are fitted into a shaped hip-yoke,
or much gored at the hem, slightly
gathered or tucked into the waist at
the sides, and box-pleated at the back.
These box-pleats represent, moreover,
one of the most interesting modistic
innovations of the moment, and a
particularly graceful and becoming effect is gained by continuing the
scheme of pleats on the bodice to the
bottom of the skirt, the lines being
broken with a narrow waist-belt.
A very common complaint is that
the tailor-made costume of today represents a very expensive item indeed
as compared to what it was in past
years. As a matter of fact, however,
"skilled labor" in the sartorial and
modistic realm is infinitely more expensive than it used to be, and the
amount of elaboration and embroidery
required makes it very difficult for
tailor and couturicrc to "keep down"
their prices. Even thc corselet costume requires such infinite nicety of
adjustment that its creators are bound
to give it more than its share of attention, while co-operation is required
from tailor, "skirt hand," and dressmaker to turn it out satisfactorily.
The importance of well-fitting tinder-garments is one of the points
which seems to havc impressed itself
upon thc women of fashion more than
anything else now that the corselet
skirt and Princess gown arc in question. To make thc gown to her own
satisfaction and that of her client thc
conturierc demands that not a single
crease or "ruck" in thc "dessous" shall
intervene to mar tlie effect; with thc
result that many Frenchwomen nowadays are wearing Princess petticoats
whicli arc as carefully fitted to the
figure as are thc gowns themselves,
and which arc besides marvels of lace
and minute stitchery. When thc skirt
is raised from out the froth and frills
of the petticoat deep a daintily shod
foot thc exact shade of the gown,
with stockings, gloves and everything
to match.
Whether it be the warm spring
sunshine or thc new spring moon that
has effected mc of late I know not.
Bc it what it may, the effect produced
is decidedly pleasant, yet T must confess rather a lazy sensation (as well
as occupation). I find myself at times
when I should be otherwise employed,
revelling in a world of imagination.
Have you ever thought how intensely
fascinating one's own world of imagination is? I sometimes think what
dull, miserable, uninteresting creatures
we would be if it were not for this
outlet. Imagination is a kind of
genius which accompanies us everywhere and makes pleasures open up
beneath our feet where otherwise
there were none. like our shadow,
we cannot shake him off if we would.
He belongs to the rich and the poor,
the young and the old.
The painter draws from his largess,
the musician lives in his enchanted
atmosphere, and even the plodding
evcry-day person whose affairs look
shabby and uninteresting to us is
often attended by this great magician,
who knows how to invest common
things with meaning and splendour.
Happy are they who have a happy
imagination. For it is a real clairvoyance, a genuine insight into the
nature of things; it is a higher knowledge, a clearer perception, an understanding of the real beauty of things
unseen by the matter-of-fact eye, patent to the fine vision of the godlike
imagination.

VICTORIA
A very pretty wedding was celebrated at Christ Church Cathedral,
Wednesday afternoon, when Canon
Beanlands united in the bonds of holy
matrimony Mr. Ravenhill Cecil Fur-
longer and Miss Gladys Emily Mason,
youngest daughter of Mrs. J. Stevenson. The bride looked beautiful in
an empire dress of white crepe de
chine with a handsome berthe of real
lace and carried a bouquet of white
carnations and lilies of the valley. The
bridesmaids, Miss Vera and Doris
Mason, sisters of the bride, were prettily attired in white organdie dresses
with touches of yellow and wore
white lace hats with yellow roses;
they carried bouquets of daffodils and
narcissus. They wore pearl and turquoise crescent brooches, the gifts of
the groom. The bride was given away
by her brother. Mr. Morton Mason.
The groom was supported by Mr.
Clifford Whiting, of this city. The
wedding march from "Lohengrin" was
played at the close of the ceremony.
A reception was then held at Mrs.
Stevenson's residence on Burdette
Avenue. The following were some of
the invited guests: Miss M. Skinner
(Quamichan). Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Skinner (Vancouver), Miss E. Skinner (Seattle), Mr. and Mrs. A. E.
McPhillips . Misses Winnifred and
Daisy Davie. Mr. Frank Davie, Mrs.

Johnson, Miss Newling, Miss Browne,
Miss Mainguy (Chemainus), Miss
Lorna Eberts, Miss Irving, Miss Genevieve Irving, Miss Newcombe, Mrs.
Cecil Roberts, Canon and Mrs. Beanlands, Miss Combe, Mrs. and the
Misses Monteith, Mr. E. Skinner
(Quamichan), Mr. Lane (Quamichan),
Mr. Reginald Hall (Thetis Island),
Mr. Charles Pemberton, Dr. Boyd,
Mr. Haggerty, Mr. Willie Newcombe
and others. The bride's mother looked handsome in a violet cloth gown
trimmed with ecru lace, with hat to
match. The ushers were Mr. Roger
Monteith and Mr. Jack Browne. The
bride left midst cheers and rice in a
tailor-made navy blue broadcloth suit
and fox furs, with hat to match. The
house was prettily decorated with
evergreens and pink and white carnations. Thc happy couple left for England via Seattle, where they will spend
their honeymoon. They intend making their home in the near future at
thc home of Mr. Furlonger at Quamichan Lake.
* *   *
Thc engagement is announced of
Mr. 11. J. S. Muskett and Miss Freda
Walker, and they will probably be
married during the coming summer.

Mr. J. Stevenson, of Barkerville, is
visiting Victoria for a few months

* *   *
Mr. Arthur Lane, of Quamichan,
who came to Victoria to attend the

Misses Judge, from Vancouver. Some
of the invited guests were: Mrs. Fleet
Robertson, Miss Macdonald, Mrs.
Rome, Miss Beth Irving, Miss Lorna
Eberts, Miss Genevieve Irving.
The Survival of
The Fittest.
IN THESE DAYS of keen commercial rivalry and brisk business
competition, when the markets
are being constantly flooded with
all kinds of Scotch whiskies-—at
all kinds of prices—and when the
public are naturally desirous of
obtaining the utmost value for
their money, it is only reasonable
to suppose that there will be in
whiskies, as in every other product, a "survival of the fittest,"
and that the productions of those
houses which have won their way
to the front rank by sheer merit,
will long continue in the public
favor. Of all the leading and well
known brands of Scotch whiskies,
there is practically only one which
fully answers the requirements of
the above statement, and that one
is the far-famed and celebrated
KILMARNOCK SCOTCH,
distilled and bottled by John
Walker & Sons, Limited, of Kilmarnock, Scotland. Many years
ago, by sheer merit, and merit
alone, it won its way, in the taste
of both the public and connoisseurs, to the head of the very
front rank. Ever since it has
maintained that lead, and will
continue to head the list of popular whiskies, because for quality,
age and uniformity it is absolutely unexcelled. That is why every
high-class bar, club and hotel
stocks KILMARNOCK SCOTCH.

Exeter Hall's Fate.
Exeter Hall, for the last seventy-
[ five years one of the most prominent
[landmarks in the Strand, is to be
[pulled down.
In its place a block of business
[premises  will  be    erected,  while  in
about two months'  time  the  Y.  M.
C. A., who have made it their head-
| quarters for the last twenty-five years,
will move into temporary quarters
j pending the erection of their new
, home on the island site at the corner
of Great Russell street and Totten-
I ham Court road.
Exeter Hall was opened in 1831 as
I a meeting-place for various religious
societies who hitherto had had to
I meet in taverns. For some years it
[was the headquarters of the Sacred
[Harmonic Society, and in it Men-
Idelssohn introduced his oratorio
("Elijah" to London in 1847.
For Exeter Hall, which has been
Isold to Messrs. J. Lyons & Sons, the
Isum of nearly £30,000 was paid.
risons abroad, and concentrating the
Navy, so that when sudden emergencies arise in distant parts of the Empire the historic promptitude with
which the red cross of St. George
always loomed up is now an impossibility.—Montreal Star.
Rival to Bridge.
At some recent winter house-parties
dominoes have quite ousted bridge in
popular favour. Betting, in at least
one of these houses, ran very high,
and of course added great zest to the
play—Gentlewoman.
Unscientific Britons.
Sport, if nothing else does, reflects
the tastes of the people. Association
football, a game watched every day
by millions of spectators, has for its
end the unscientific object of getting
a round ball into a square hole.—
Punch.
Miss Rosina Brandram.
The group of famous singers and
|actors  that  D'Oyly  Carte organised
}for the performance of Gilbert and
sullivan's operas at the Opera Com-
lique thirty years ago lost one more
Imember from its diminished ranks on
?riday by the death of Miss Rosina
iBrandram.
The first very general intimation
[that Miss Brandram was ill came at
Jthe end of December, when Mr. W.
|S. Gilbert, at the dinner given to the
Savoyards by the 0. P. Club, referred
|to it in a few touching words when
jeploring her absence: "Rosina of
the glorious voice that rolled out as
Jfull-bodied Burgundy rolls down—
■Rosina whose dismal doom it was to
[represent undesirable old ladies of 65,
■but who with all the resources of the
Iperruquier and the make-up box could
[never succeed in looking more than
[an attractive eight-and-twenty—it was
|her only failure."
Bronchitis  was   the  cause  of  her
[death, which took place at Southend.
"Bee in the Canuck Bonnet."
If Secretary Root can only convince
the Canadians we are not bent on
stealing their country! For how many
years has this bee been buzzing in
the Canuck bonnet and putting our
neighbourly relations on a strain!—
Telegraph, Philadelphia.
Women Canada Wants.
Canada wants and welcomes the
woman of practical ability. The idle
woman, the namby-pamby woman,
the woman who lives and breathes
and has her being in "family," and the
woman who is too proud to work
might just as well stay at home.—
Gentlewoman.
Purity of Speech and Mind.
Purity of language, both grammatically and figuratively speaking, is akin
to purity of heart and mind. No man
or woman can be considered well
educated or has the right to the honourable term "gentleman" or "lady"
who cannot speak his or her mother
tongue with accuracy, discrimination,
and intelligibility.—Queen.
Help for St. Helena.
Lord Elgin has decided, subject to
(the approval of Parliament, to devote
[£300 to relieving distress in St.
[Helena caused by the removal of the
British garrison, and £4,000 to start
Lhe cultivation of New Zealand hemp
In the island.
Entertaining the Premiers.
The Canadian-born members of
parliament held a meeting at the
House of Commons on Tuesday, and
decided to invite the Colonial Premiers to luncheon, which will prob-
Ibly be given at the House.
Early Marriage Results.
Divorces are, happily, rare in society circles. Separation by mutual
consent, however, grows more frequent every year. Everyone has, upon
his or her visiting list, husbands and
wives who never meet if they can
help it, but between whom there has
never been an open breach. Incompatibility of temper is the usual cause,
and the reason for that is, one imagines, the still common custom of
encouraging the younger generation
to marry before they have begun to
approach years of discretion.—The
Throne.
Lord Curzon Wishes a Seat.
Writing to a correspondent Lord
fcurzon said: "It is my desire, after
lhe forthcoming summer, to re-enter
lublic life, and, if a suitable oppor-
[unity presents itself, to obtain a seat
Parliament."
Sixty-nine Shrieking Reasons.
There were sixty-nine negroes and
negresses lynched in America last
year, in an atmosphere of kerosene
and firewood — sixty-nine reasons
shrieking to Australia to sternly shut
out the coloured alien, whether black,
brown, or yellow.—Sydney Bulletin.
Transvaal Elections.
The Liberal Government has cer-
ainly gone as near as it dared to giving back the new Colonies to their

er.
Man's Most Amazing Invention.
Looking around at a complex workl
kne is struck by the fact that the most
(mazing thing that civilised man has
Iver invented is—civilised woman.—
Lady's Pictorial.
A British Custom.
The death of the Shah of Persia has
not disturbed Europe on the surface,
but Britain, Germany, and Russia are
engaged in the keenest of diplomatic
races for the best ear of the new
ruler, and Great Britain, as is her
custom, is about two years ahead in
the race.—News Letter, San Francisco.
Frills of Success.
The woman unbecomingly clad
Hands a poor chance of social sue-
less against her well-dressed sister,
[nd it has been a question of frocks
lat has often won the day for a girl
Ir a woman seeking occupation as a

The Brainy Man.
Provided a man has brains and
knows how to use them, no more is
required of him. Attractive manners
and a pleasant face, should he possess them, will be by no means a disadvantage, but a man can easily command a good position in the world, be
he the ugliest mortal that was ever
created.—Madame.

But good luck! this Patrick's day.
II.
God reward ye, Patsey Driscoll,
Since ye gathered there for me
Near the scenes I loved in childhood,
By the valley of the Lea,
Where the mountains cast their shadows
On the crystal water's crest,
Making mystic mirrored pictures
As the sun  sinks down to rest.
III.
'Spose I know you, Patsey Driscoll,
But I can't remember now
What you looked like in my boyhood,
Where I met you, when or how,
For I've roved the world of millions,
Daily thousands  come and go
And it blurs the recollection—
Faces sweeping to and fro.
IV.
I'll keep thinking, Patsey Driscoll,
Sometimes dreams may set one right,
And I'll place this bunch of shamrocks
'Neath my pillow Patrick's night.
If the Fairies would but whisper
Some old songs of long ago,
I might see you in the gloaming
'Round some haunt I used to know.
But those shamrocks, Patsey Driscoll,
They'll be proudly worn by me,
Though I ne'er may see the verdure
Of the old land o'er the sea,
Clinging 'round the leaves so tender,
Memory twines its silver thread,
I may place you, Patsey Driscoll,
Ere  St.  Patricks'  night has  fled.

Adjutant, 5th Regiment, C.A.
After a lingering illness of three
months there passed away at St.
Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, early
Monday morning, Mrs. Ariadne E.
Godenrath, widow of the late Captain Johann Wilhelm H. Godenrath
and mother of Mr. Percy F. Godenrath, of the staff of The Week. The
deceased lady was well known
throughout the interior of the Province, having resided at Nelson and
Greenwood, before moving to Victoria, where she lived at the Dallas
Hotel for over a year, thence going
to the "Terminal City" shortly after
the marriage of her son. The remains were laid to rest in Mountain
View Cemetery. The impressive funeral service of the Church of England was read in St. James' by Rev.
E. W. Summerscales, who also officiated at the grave in the Masonic
plot. Many lovely floral contributions were sent by friends in Victoria
and Vancouver, marking the great esteem in which her memory was held.
Mr. and Mrs. Percy F. Godenrath, son
and daughter-in-law of the deceased,
and Mr. Stanley Boys, her nephew,
were thc chief mourners.
A Reporter Blushes.
A good joke is related at the expense of a modest young man who
started in a few weeks ago as a reporter on a certain Baltimore paper.
It is to the effect that the pusher of
thc pencil went out to report a party
the other evening where he home had
recently been blessed by a new baby.
Accompanied by his best girl he met
the hostess at the door, and after the
usual salutation asked after the baby's
health. The lady, who was quite deaf
and suffering with the grip, thought
he was asking about her cold, and
told him that though she usually had
one every winter this was the worst
she ever had; it kept her awake nights
a good deal at first and confined her
to bed. Then, noticing that the
scribe was getting nervous, she said
she could tell by his looks that he
was going to have one just like hers,
and asked him to go in and sit down.
The paper was out as usual the next
day, but thc reported has quit inquiring about babies.
