The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
([-he Nigger
n the Fence,
In the last issue of The
Week the subject of the
Lord's Day Act was discussed  at considerable
ength and from a standpoint which has
irought many letters of approval from
liferent parts of the Province.   The Week
ias, however, been challenged upon one
fatement  and  is therefore in fairness
|;ound to furnish the data upon which that
atement was made.    The statement is
lat the publication of a Monday morning
.ewspaper does not necessitate as many
ours' work on Sunday as the present pub-
cation of a Sunday morning newspaper,
n making this statement The Week was
[bntravening the oft-repeated declaration
[f the Colonist that the reverse was true.
it therefore challenges the Colonist to dis-
■ute the accuracy of the following figures
hich are furnished by a practical fore-
[kan of a printing establishment conversant
ith every detail of the business of pub-
shing  a  newspaper  and  competent  to
'arry out what he declares is practical. At
resent  the  publication  of the  Sunday
Colonist entails at least fifty-two hours'
fork on the part of various employees on
Sunday morning.    To be exact, that is
iter  Saturday midnight.    These hours
|re made up as follows:    1 reporter, 3;
night editor, 3; 1 proof reader, 3; 9
frinters, 27; two stereotypers, 8; 2 press-
ien, 8, a total of 52.    If the Colonist
|'ere to publish on Monday morning in-
;ead no one would be required to come to
ork on the Sunday until 10 o'clock at
ght.    The whole staff would have had
Sir full day's rest and no one need or
uld complain—least of all a newspaper
an  accustomed  to  night  work—if  at
out bedtime he went to the office to get
jit thc Monday paper.   Everything except
fte telegraphic news would be put up on
turday and printed.    This department
'l-ms a very small percentage of the read-
g matter of the Colonist—never more
an one full page—but even if, under
jecial circumstances it ran to a page and
half, it would be done by the staff,
leduled as follows:   Night editor, from
to 12, 2 hours; proof-reader, 11 to 12,
['hour; 2 printers, 10 to 12, i hours; 1
ke-up, 10 to 12, 2 hours, or a total of 9
furs.    The balance of their time, until
•or 4 o'clock in the morning when tho
[per would be issued, would of course
it be in Sunday hours and is therefore
it accounted for.    To this it might be
ir to add, although our authority claims
at it is most unnecessary, one reporter
pm 6 o'clock on Sunday until midnight,
flich would bring the possible total up
115 hours as against 52.    In view of this
B public may well ask themselves why
ree   newspapers,   and   there   are   only
ree, viz.: the Colonist, the News-Adver-
jer and the Nelson News—should seek
emption from a law which governs every
tier  newspaper  in   Canada,   and  why
ey should be allowed a special privilege
l violation of public sentiment, which is
hied to all others.    There can be no
equate reason, but the motive is appar-
lt when it is pointed out that a Sunday
[ition is the best advertising medium and
ts the publishers, on an average, 20 to
per cent, more than a week day issue,
fact many advertisements are taken
• the Sunday issue alone, at higher rates,
something over  500 newspapers can
[mage to live and still have the decency
■ comply with a national law, it is not
easy to understand why three should not
be able and willing to remodel their
arrangements in order that they also may
be found in an attitude of defence rather
than of defiance to law and order. Much
more could be said and may have to be
said, but surely it is a pitiable exhibition
when organs which claim a high moral
standard, and which on the whole have
striven fairly to live up to their professions are found willing to swallow their
principles antagonize public sentiment,
and encourage contempt for legalized
statutes in order to add a few paltry dollars to their gains. It is doubly pitiable
when they are found urging a pretext in
justification of their line of action which
is but a cloak for the real reason.
The attention of The
The Fees of Real Week has been called
Estate Agents.        to the fact that whilst
the statutes very properly limit the fee which can be charged
by a lawyer in connection with the negotiation of a real estate deal, or of a loan
in connection therewith, there are no
statutory provisions which apply to real
estate agents. And now that we are in
the flood tide of a land boom, it is as well
to point out that a number of inexperienced business men have launched out into
real estate and dubbed themselves real
estate agents. They are not conversant
with the technicalities of the business, as
are the older firms who have been associated with it for many years, and who
have made it their regular vocation. With
the newcomers it is a side show to which
they have been attracted by the prospects
of large profits, and when the boom is over
most of them will go back to their humbler
calling. Meanwhile, however, these gentlemen are charging one per cent, on real
estate transactions and the negotiation of
loans, which is just double the fee which
the statutes permit a lawyer to charge,
with the additional disadvantage that with
the best of intentions these gentlemen are
not competent to protect the purchaser in
the matter of title and other legal technicalities. As a matter of fact several
serious errors have already been committed
in this direction, and purchasers have paid
for properties to which they could only
secure a defective title. Moreover, the
charges of real estate agents cannot be
taxed, as can those of the legal fraternity.
No doubt old established firms such as
Pemberton & Son, A. AV. Jones, Heisterman & Co., the B. C. Lands, and many
others are just as competent to protect
their clients as any lawyer in Victoria or
Vancouver, but not so the vast majority of
those who call themselves real estate
agents. And in any event there does not
appear to be any reason why a real estate
agent should be permitted to charge twice
as much as a lawyer. It is to be hoped
that the Government may be induced to
deal with this matter and establish a legal
scale of fees. But, whether they do so or
not, a prudent purchaser will take the precaution of having his title investigated by
a member of the legal fraternity. It is
hardly necessary for The Week to state
that these remarks are not made in the interest of the profession, which is notoriously well able to take care of itself, but
of the stranger in our midst who is making such extensive purchases and thereby
contributing to thc development of Victoria and the Island.
If the Victoria Cana-
A Splendid dian Club went out of
Inauguration. existence tomorrow,  it
would leave a record of
' which no institution need be ashamed.
For many organizations have existed and
met and debated, passed resolutions and
adjourned year after year without achieving as notable and as valuable a result as
was effected by the Canadian Club at its
inaugural meeting on Wednesday last.
The Club did well, thanks to its able and
energetic president, Mr. A. W. McCurdy,
in attracting one hundred representatives
to a mid-day lunch for the purpose of promoting Canadian interests rather than
appeasing their appetites. But it did far
better when it invited and secured the attendance of Chief Justice Hunter to deliver one of the most notable, profound
and impressive addresses, ever heard in the
Canadian West. The Week has taken
occasion more than once to comment upon
the great intellectual capacity and the
breadth of view which characterize the
Chief Justice, but he never rendered as
great a public service as on the occasion in
question, when for the first time the eyes
of Western people were directed toward
an ideal which every loyal Canadian
should cherish and the importance of
which is emphasized by the degenerate
methods which prevail in the sister republic to the South. Chief Justice Hunter in a scholarly review, touched briefly
but lucidly upon the administration of law
and the preservation of order within tho
British Empire, and was greeted with loud
cheers when he suggestively referred to the
travestie of justice now being conducted in
such a disffustinff and sensational manner
in New York. His other topic, that of
effective popular representative government was admirably handled, and he had
no difficulty in showing that with far less
pretence the subjects of King Edward are
more truly represented. He emphasized
the prompt administration of justice, the
impartial manner in which litigants of all
classes, including a Chief Justice of England, are dealt with, and he finally illustrated the mass of corruption which has
rendered direct representation of the
people's wishes in the United States little
short of a misnomer. The moral of all
this is that the Canadian Club, and indeed
every Canadian institution, especially in
the West, which by reason of immigration
is more susceptible to and more in danger,
of the influence of American sentiment,
should organize an aggressive campaign in
defence of British ideals, British institutions and the preservation of patriotic
sentiments. This is but the barest outline
of an address which should be reprinted in
every Canadian newspaper and circulated
in pamphlet form from one end of tlie
Dominion to the other. Such a campaign
is needed. It will not check the material
development of the AYest, but will raise
western men in the estimation of Americans who are nothing if not ultra-loyal
themselves and who must often gaze in
astonishment at thc indifference of Canadians to the loftiest Imperial ideas tho
world has ever known.
ing a tour of the orchards in thc neighborhood of Victoria, and informs The
Week that while the natural advantages of
Vancouver Island are excellent for fruit
growing, the orchards are in the worst condition of any he has seen. He considers
that we are discounting all our advantages
in the eyes of prospective settlers by continuing to exhibit thousands of fruit trees
encrusted with moss, scale and other evidences of neglect and disease. He says
that even the new orchards, with few exceptions, are not receiving the necessary
attention, and, while he commends the recent circular of the Minister of Agriculture with respect to the treatment of fruit
trees, ho is of opinion that an increased
number of fruit inspectors is necessary to
see that the provisions of the Act are properly carried out. Obviously this work is
one of the most important that can be performed for the protection of settlers and
the encouragement of a fruit growing
industry, and just at this particular time,
when there is an undoubted boom in the
sale of cultivable lands, the Government
should without delay give special attention
to a matter so intimately affecting the development of the Island. Tliat practical
experience combined with close supervision will protect the public and tlie investor
from the ravages of those pests which attack fruit trees, is evidenced by the splendid success which Mr. B. M. Palmer has
achieved at his famous fruit farm. Here
is an object lesson for every fruit grower
which cannot be too carefully studied, and
to duplicate which should be the object of
all who are engaged in the industry or
who can influence its success.

Dr. Young will add strength to the Ministry, both in Council and on thc floor of

style, and a pleasing manner. Dr. Young

to predict a brilliant future for the latest
addition to the Government.

And looked mo full ln thc eyes and said.
"I will go to the end of the lane with

By THE LOUNGER «T
Nothing has delighted me more
during the last few months than a
notice which I saw in one of the
daily papers lately, to the etfect that
there is a movement to do away with
the ordinary breakfast. Breakfast is
an unmitigated evil, carried on as it
is under present conditions. I have
made a careful and conscientious examination of statistics and I find that
75 per cent of the crime of the world
is committed by men and women
who are in the habit of having breakfast. To bring this more clearly to
the minds of my readers, I will tell
them that this means that if the
criminals of the world who have
breakfast were placed two and two
in a long line they would stretch
from St. Petersburg to Vancouver;
they would require 286,000 head of
oxen to feed them, or 874,000 sheep
or one rasher of the bacon which can
be bought in Victoria. These figures
are appalling, and if anyone disagrees
with them they have only to turn up
the criminal records for the year 1906
to see that they are correct.
Naturally the conscientious Christian tries to discover why there
should be such a surplus of crime
in a civilized community. He need
go no further than breakfast. Let
me try and explain why breakfast is
such a blot on our otherwise tuicon-
taincd  landscape.
We will start with the man. He
awakes in the morning with the awful
feeling that he has to get up. Nobody has ever yet become reconciled
to this first infliction on suffering humanity. In the course of time the
man gets up; he endures with what
patience hc can the tortures of the
razor and thc bath, and finally
emerges from his dressing-room to
the dining-room, where a heavy repast is spread, for him to enjoy (?).
See tlie unfortunate man facing his
kidneys and bacon, longing to read
the morning paper, but deterred therefrom by the glowering form of his
wife, who insists that he should talk
as an example to the children. Is it
any wonder that he catches his morning train with wrath in his heart
and murder written plain upon his
face?
Thc wife fares no better. Hers is
the responsibility as to the freshness
of the eggs; the condition of the
toast; the punctuality of the children.
She comes to the breakfast table with
the cares of the world on her shoulders, and can we wonder if she does
not always display the same good
temper with which we have credited
her in times past over the tea table.
And the children—well, we will say
little about them. They are a nuisance to a lounger in any case, and
their feelings are hardly worth considering, but in all fairness we must
admit that the children, if they live
long enough, will eventually become
men or women, and so, for that reason, it is not advisable that their early
lives should be blighted by the pernicious system of breakfast as at
present organised, where they see
their parents, whom they should be
taught to honour and respect, at their
worst, and be thus early inculcated
with feel;ngs the reverse of what is
taught in the "Duty towards your
neighbour."
It has been the failing of many
reformers that they have indicted a
practice without giving any substitute
for it. I, therefore, propose to lay
out my own plan, (copyright in
Great Britain, U. S. of America and
Germany), for the happiness of countless households and the elimination
of 75 per cent of the crime which is
at present devastating the world. I
intend to form a company under the
title of "The Practical Christianising of the World by Common Sense
Methods Co., Ltd.," which will do
more to make the earth an abode
where it is agreeable to live than any
number of Church Missionary Societies. And my first step will be to
"cut  out"  the  breakfast  proposition.
Let us consider this matter in a
fair and square light. The ordinary
family consists, we will say, of man,
wife, grown-up son, daughter of about
fifteen, and small boy of ten. There
is one bath in the house. The boy
goes to school at 9.30 in the morning;
the man is a banker and has to be
at the bank at 10 o'clock. The grownup son is a clerk in a business, and
has to open up at 9 o'clock. The
daughter has just left school and has
to help her mother. This is just an
ordinary family.
Now it is obvious that if they are
all to meet at breakfast at the same
time in the morning, some of them
will have to get out of bed a great
deal ahead of time. That is, of
course, providing that they take a
cold bath; I take no interest in those
who omit this feature of the morning
toilet, they are in Gehenna already.
Consequently there are at least four
members of the family who have been
waiting for their breakfast, and are
in a correspondingly bad humour.
There is then the forced conversation
to be maintained; complaints to be
registered as regards the bacon, or
subtle insinuations as to the age of
the hen which laid the eggs. A general foundation of irritation is laid
for the whole day. Listen to my
plan;
Let every wife make arrangements
with the milkman to leave the milk
early in the morning, where the man
can find it. Let every wife put out
over-night a loaf of bread, a substantial amount of butter, and a glass
for each male creature. Then let her
go to bed and not get up till each
male creature is safely out of the
house. The bank manager will arise
about 8.45, dress comfortably without any worrying lot of questions,
will take his glass of milk and, if he
feels so inclined, a slice of bread and
butter, and will then proceed at peace
with himself and the world to the
bank. The clerk will tumble out of
bed about 9 o'clock, will do the same
and arrive at his office with temper
unruffled. The schoolboy will emerge
from the sheets about 9.10 and will
appear with a clean and smiling face
for his master's examination. When
all the males have thus disappeared
the mother and daughter will be free
to use the bath and get to work, being in this easy manner relieved of
any dish-washing consequent on
breakfast. They will be able to go
right ahead on preparations for lunch
and dinner, and when the men come
home they will find two smiling faces
awaiting them, with a good dinner in
the background. And that makes up
a happy home.
THE LOUNGER.
The Church Cough.
Persons who will sit out a play or
listen to an interesting conversation
without coughing seem to be seized,
as soon as they compose themselves
to hear a sermon, with distressing irritation of the windpipe that can be
relieved only by violent and continued
coughing. The affection is contagious, spreading from seat to seat,
cough answering unto cough. As far
as we know, the etiology of this
strange disease has not received attention from the scientific investigator
—British Medical Journal.
Purple Clothes For Men.
In the scheme of masculine dress,
purple is the latest shade (writes the
editor of "Men's Wear"). During the
approaching months of sunshine it
will contribute a dash of color to up-
river scenes and pastoral tea-parties.
Produced in fine Saxonies and flannels of the very highest grade, purple
suitings are intended for recreative
occasions, week-end country visits,
and holiday-making at the seaside.
They are possible only to those to
whom expense is no consideration. So
bright and subtle is the colour that,
in a cloth of ordinary quality, the destructive influence of the sun will bc
apparent in a few hours.
Relief to thc monotony of the purple is provided by a slight stripe of a
second delicate shade, the palest green
being perhaps the most artistic of
several possible suggestions.
Wc have sought to browbeat Canada, but the time has come to try
to placate her.—Post, New York.

however, of walking between his

W By  BABETTE. Y
«■**» *
Dear   Madge:
Paint—or, perhaps, to avoid being
misunderstood, I should say painting
—is in revived and vigorous favour
this season, as applied to clothes, of
course—not house-fronts or faces, let
it bc clearly known. Painting, most
dainty of posies, foliage, and fruit
appear on scarves and evening gowns,
and wc are told that the coming
summer hats will bear crowns of
painted roses amidst a froth and foam
of lace and chiffon brims. A delightfully decorative fashion this, but one
which used to require more coin than
the average pocket is possessed of.
Now, however, so many "poor ladies" work for the smart stores that
prohibitive prices for hand-painted
material no longer prevail, and quite
beautiful scarves, etc., are obtainable
at moderate cost, which a few years
back would have commanded double
the price. Naturally, where one sold
them, twelve are bought now, so that
every one is benefited—the purchaser,
painter and retailer, who, one is glad
to know, does not sweat his poor lady
worker as he was formerly wont to
do.
Talking of fashions and fancies, a
beautiful Empire gown of dull pink
chiffion was a fascinating picture at
a dinner party I attended the other
evening. It was literally shrouded
with clouds of blonde lace and little
Empire wreaths of moss-rosebuds. In
harmonious contrast, quite close, sat
a grey gown, all net and still sequins, which presented an admirable
effect. If people could only arrange
the colors of their guests' clothes
when giving idnner parties what really pictorial effects could be produced.
It seems, even in these enlightened days, that the ugly and characterless "drawing-room suite" has not yet
■entirely disappeared from our midst.
There is surely nothing more second-
rate and utterly depressing than the
dismal collection known as the "drawing-room suite," especially in horsehair. It is so unimaginative. Its
chairs arc invariably ugly as well as
uncomfortable. Among all the decorative "don't"—don't have a drawing-
room suite is the most important.
Others are don't overcrowd your
drawing-room with ornamental knick-
knacks or fragile and unstable occasional tables, and don't have a single
chair that is uncomfortable. The woman who allows straight-backed, comfortless chairs to remain in her drawing-room commits a breach of hospitality, but thc woman who allows
a whole drawing-room suite to remain commits, as the witty Frenchman said, something worse than a
crime—a blunder. [Take out that
gilded straightback, spindlclegged torture  rack,  Babette.]—Ed.
We havc, however, made great
strides since the bad old days of
thc early-Victoria era with its horsehair sofas, its drawing-room suites,
and the crimson and blue wall papers,
beloved of our grandmothers, albeit
there arc Philistines of various kinds
among us still. Nowadays, however,
we are all striving to do the right
thing (in the decorative line). Wc
are harking back to the beautiful old
models of thc great bygone ages of
furniture and blending soft and reposeful colors in our decorative
schemes',
One day while enjoying a peaceful
hour of sitting thinking about nothing at all a violent knocking came at
thc door, a small whirlwind flew up
the stairs, my door burst open, and
an agitated friend stood gasping on
thc threshold. That her husband had
absconded or that she had lost her
pet diamond pendant was my instant
conclusion, and long before she was
able to speak I had planned all kinds
of plots for finding them again, my
only doubt being the proper amount
of reward to offer for a husband.
But it was a far more perplexing errand she had come upon. What she
implored me to tell her was the proper kit for acroplaning. Her husband
and she were to visit friends in New
York who had promised to take
them on trips in the air, and of course
a proper outfit must be prepared for
the aeroplanette. I hated to confess
that I had never given it a thought,
but the posisbilities were, of course,
instantly apparent. Must we indeed
have yet one more set of garments
of still another new type? I suggested—weakly I own—that surely
motor things would do. But the
aeroplanette was horrified, for a different sport one must have different
clothes. Besides, one's motor things
are chosen for not showing the dust,
and there can't be dust in an aeroplane surely. We decided that something that would look nice and effective against the clouds must be
chosen, so after a little meditation we
fixed on scarlet serge. We thought
scarlet would be nice, because it
would show well when one chanced
to meet other aeroplanes. Then for
the head we decided on a scarlet
Spanish felt cap, pulled down well
around the head and with a long Mephistophelean feather at the side; a
scarlet chiffon scarf to float in the
wind, and a large scarlet frieze cloak
to wrap oneself in. With a patent
un-come-out-of-curlable fringe—as she
vaguely imagined that clouds were
damp—pinned on beneath the cap,
my friend felt that she would be complete and the agitation subsided. But
a look of worry and fresh perplexity
appeared—an emergency must be
dressed for. What would look well
when one fell out? She had constantly heard that one had no time to
get out calmly; the possibility. of
falling on one's head into a tree must
be looked for. A petticoat as one
fell out of a flying machine would
look hateful and might cause her to
be mistaken for a parachute. So a
pair of neat black-buttoned gaiters,
fitting trimly to above the knee was
settled upon, and nice black velvet
kickers. One felt that, then one
could fall head first or feet first as
one pleased quite comfortably into
any tree and feel that one looked well,
She went away quite happy, and now
I am thinking out something—in
green and silver for myself.
